R. It is love that God wants If we really
realize how real God is and we love Him and
know He is keeping us in existence we would
not want to offend God and we would
give Him what He wants
If we are in love with God we want to do
His work, we want to serve Him, He is
our love serving Him in our all consuming
We learn to live more and more in faith
We are in love with the God we do not see
We know Him in our hearts
We know His presence within us in the Eucharist,
Jesus truly present in me
We know the presence of the Trinity in our graced
baptized soul all day
We know the Holy Spirit in us
Let us focus on the presence of God in our
graced baptized soul
Song: Your Presence Pervades My Soul
R. The more we sin, do evil to our brothers,
turn away from love, the more
we distance ourselves from God and
we then live in greater darkness, the more we give
into the deadly sins the more miserable
Misery is being distant from God
Hell is total misery absence of God
When we become selfish, possessive,
jealous, we are blocking what
God wants done opposing God's will
this distances ourselves more and more
R. We can focus more on believing, pray for the
increase of faith, hope and love from God and
this life lived more in Him being filled
more abundantly with His life makes us
happy Happiness is found in being
filled more and more by God living in
faith seeing through the eyes of the
Father staying in the state of grace and
being filled more and more with His life
Heaven is being FULL of grace
Being possessed by God
Complete happiness in heaven
Sin, jealousy, possessiveness, envy,
seeking power for power sake,
anger, lust, slothfulness,
Takes us away from God who is all good
The more we give into sin and stay
in the state of sin willfully
operate in jealousy, tearing
apart what God wants,
opposing God's will
the more empty, dark and angry we become
in the way we sin
Mortal sin is very serious and we
must go to confession to be
Venial sin, deception to ourselves of
these unloving acts make us
miserable when we don't
take responsibility for our
sin and ask to be forgiven
When we go to Mass there is the Penitential
Presence we don't see God and yet we
We know the presence of the Trinity
in our graced baptized soul
more and more
John 20: 24-29
Thomas, called the Twin, who was one of the Twelve, was not with them when Jesus came. So the other disciples said to him, 'We have seen the Lord,' but he answered, 'Unless I can see the holes that the nails made in his hands and can put my finger into the holes they made, and unless I can put my hand into his side, I refuse to believe.' Eight days later the disciples were in the house again and Thomas was with them. The doors were closed, but Jesus came in and stood among them. Peace be with you, he said. Then he spoke to Thomas, Put your finger here; look, here are my hands. Give me your hand; put it into my side. Do not be unbelieving any more but believe. Thomas replied, My Lord and my God! Jesus said to him:
You believe because you can see me.
Blessed are those who have not seen
and yet believe.
Luke 13: 22-30
Through towns and villages he went teaching, making his way to Jerusalem. Someone said to him, Sir, will there be only a few saved? He said to them, Try your hardest to enter by the narrow door, because, I tell you, many will try to enter and will not succeed.
Once the master of the house has got up and locked the door, you may find yourself standing outside knocking on the door, saying, "Lord, open to us," but he will answer, "I do not know where you come from." Then you will start saying, "We once ate and drank in your company; you taught in our streets," but he will reply, "I do not know where you come from; away from me, all evil doers!"
Then there will be weeping and grinding of teeth, when you see Abraham and Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets in the kingdom of God, and yourselves thrown out. And people from east and west, from north and south, will come and sit down at the feast in the kingdom of God.
Look, there are those now last who will be first, and those now first who will be last.
Luke 19: 38
They cried out:
Blessed is he who is coming
as King in the name of the Lord!
Peace in heaven
and glory in the highest heavens!
Luke 2: 14
Glory to God in the highest heaven,
and on earth peace for those he favours.
Luke 13: 31-35
Just at this time some Pharisees came up. 'Go away,' they said. 'Leave this place, because Herod means to kill you.' He replied, 'You may go and give that fox this message: Look! Today and tomorrow I drive out devils and heal, and on the third day I attain my end. But for today and tomorrow and the next day I must go on, since it would not be right for a prophet to die outside Jerusalem.
'Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you that kill the prophets and stone those who are sent to you! How often have I longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, and you refused! Look! Your house will be left to you. Yes, I promise you, you shall not see me till the time comes when you are saying:
Blessed is he
who is coming in the name of the Lord.'
Romans 12: 5-16
in the same way, all of us, though there are so many of us, make up one body in Christ, and as different parts we are all joined to one another. Then since the gifts that we have differ according to the grace that was given to each of us: if it is a gift of prophecy, we should prophesy as much as our faith tells us; if it is a gift of practical service, let us devote ourselves to serving; if it is teaching, to teaching; if it is encouraging, to encouraging. When you give, you should give generously from the heart; if you are put in charge, you must be conscientious; if you do works of mercy, let it be because you enjoy doing them. Let love be without any pretence. Avoid what is evil; stick to what is good. In brotherly love let your feelings of deep affection for one another come to expression and regard others as more important than yourself. In the service of the Lord, work not halfheartedly but with conscientiousness and an eager spirit. Be joyful in hope, persevere in hardship; keep praying regularly; share with any of Gods holy people who are in need; look for opportunities to be hospitable.
Bless your persecutors; never curse them, bless them. Rejoice with others when they rejoice, and be sad with those in sorrow. Give the same consideration to all others alike. Pay no regard to social standing, but meet humble people on their own terms. Do not congratulate yourself on your own wisdom.
Excerpts from the Mass Book
IN THE DEEPEST RECESSES OF HIS HEART
The place Jesus took me was into the deepest recesses of His Heart. I was enveloped in His burning love. It was a red room with heat and an intense glow. I was swept away in this embrace, and I only existed in Him. The power of the Almighty God enveloped me, and I only existed in Him. There was no fear, for I was existent in this Almighty Being. My heart was wrapped in the eternal embrace of this Supreme Being. The security, the power I know was His deep presence in which I existed.
I knew the room was red and warm. I knew His immenseness, but I felt my own completeness in Him. I did not feel little, as a speck, but elevated and empowered for I existed then in Him in a most special way.
I was overtaken by the love of God. The fire of the Holy Spirit filled me. I was absorbed by the love of the Father, and I existed IN Him and in the deepest recesses of the Heart of Jesus. Our heaven on earth is these inner chambers of His magnificent Heart - the Heart of the Almighty God, with all the power, with omnipotence, with the fire of the love of God. He took me to the deepest chamber of this fiery Heart, and in that moment, I touched eternity, for I knew what it was to be enveloped in the deep furnace of His love. I now want to exist in this chamber of His Heart, swept away in His burning love, absorbed in my every cell with His love.
We do not understand the fire of His love. We do not understand what it is to be absorbed by love itself. He took me to the inner, deepest chamber of His Heart, and I felt the heat and knew the presence of love itself, and there was no fear, only a feeling of completeness, omnipotence, all-embracing, penetrating love - a power indescribable in words, a saturation of my being in the presence of God, and I was as I was created to be - living in Him!
This is how I will forever live my life, saturated with His divine life and love deep within this inner chamber of His burning Heart, living in Him as He possesses my being, and I operate with His power in me.
Little creatures though we are, we are His, His power, His life, flowing through us. In Him, we are as the Father intended: one in Him, each one of us, dwelling in this fiery furnace of His love. With our fears quieted and our hearts empowered by His life, we live forever in Him - in the Heart of Jesus.
Let no man separate what God has joined together. I am wed in the deepest love with my beloved Spouse, wed to the Heart of Jesus. As I am, I am one in Him. I live and I breathe in Him. He, Who is love, He Who is our all, He Who is mighty and without limits, He Who is, He Who is God and as I live, He lives in me in this world.
I am wed to Him, and I shall not fear for He is God - one, complete, loving, God. Heart of Jesus, I place my trust in Thee. As I live, I live in Your most adorable Heart, the furnace of God's love!

THE EARTH STOPPED AND TOUCHED HEAVEN
I long to unite in the deepest union with Him in the Eucharist. I long for the Mass. I long for Thee, oh God. My every moment, I join as I did to You December 15 under the cross, where I felt Your presence. You whisked me away, and I was totally absorbed in that moment of celestial union with You. For that time, I existed only in You, in the deepest union, and I was in this moment existing in You. The earth stopped, and I touched the heavens, all my bodily cares were existent in You. I existed in Your Divinity, my being was in You. There was no desire or wish or wanting, for in that moment, I had all I wanted in You. I was satisfied and wanted nothing but to remain in that embrace. You were the Being, and my being existed in You, but I was only as I was in You - merged in You, knowing and being in Your Divinity and being so full as to feel complete in myself.
You are so enormous, and You surrounded me in a burning embrace, the presence of red fire. I was not little, or "nothing", but existed in this enormous power and being so complete!
I touched eternity, and in that embrace, I knew all the waiting was worth the glory. You enveloped my being, and I was truly merged in the Divine Presence. I was merged in Your being. I existed IN You, with You, in the highest union with You, although I knew I was still distinct from You.
I was fused and absorbed in You, feeling complete and satisfied. To describe this union is far beyond any work of my pen and paper. I pray for the reader of this page to receive the grace to share this experience with Him, I will now live for this union-to be forever merged In Him, to be One in Him, to reach higher perfection as I exist in Him, for He takes the lowly and gives to them a sharing in Himself. He merges with us and we exist in Him. The word "in" - I could write pages about. I long for the deepest union with Him, where I am swept up in the heavenly embrace of the Divine God, and I am IN Him.
This is heaven on earth: to be merged as one with Divinity, although remaining distinct from God, to take our feeble hearts, our lowly status and to unite ourselves with the Divine, Almighty, powerful God and in this union to be meshed with Him, that His power dominates and our humanity reaches its heights of fulfillment in this union, in this oneness with Him.
The word I have looked for is "oneness." I understand some of the meaning of the words "One in Him." Oneness is the word to describe this union of our humanity with His Divinity. The depth to which we could meditate on oneness with God is incomprehensible. In that moment, the earth stood still, and He, my Divine Lover, the Bridegroom of my soul, took me to Himself, and I knew the embrace of the Divine God.
Nothing on the face of this earth can describe our union with Divinity. Oh, good God, that creatures are so ungrateful regarding Your divine love. I am so sorry. Let me help make reparation to Your adorable Heart. Please unite with me now that I may more deeply love Thee.
Oh, Divine Lover of my soul, let me help make reparation to Your adorable Heart for the neglect and indifference against You.
Song from Jesus: I come to you with greatest love. I am your loving Savior. I am your God. I died for you. I come to you this day.
He allowed me to experience such pain in my heart - wanting Him so badly, so many times-and then on Dec. 15, 1995 - He gave Himself to me in the deepest union.
Nothing satisfies the soul but Him. He wants the nuns and priests to love Him. He chose them to spread His love.
Souls are hungry. They will only be fed with His burning love. Priests need to talk about Jesus' love for us from the pulpit. Priests need hearts burning for love of Jesus. This will feed the hungry souls - lip service love doesn't do it.
He is alive today. He is a Person. He wants us to love Him.

THE RED ROOM
Written at 12:00 p.m. after Mass:
He empowers the lowly. I see that as I unite to Him, it is no longer I who live, but He Who lives in me. He is all-powerful. I become one in Him. He operates through me. He lifts our burden. He takes away the resistance.
If I unite to Him, He is praying through me. I envision this experience, and I am united to Him in the deepest union. If I pray this way, it is with this power that the prayer goes to God, united through Him, with Him, and in Him.
When I felt I was in the depth of His Heart, on Dec. 15, 1995, I envisioned a red room. I felt the warmth, the presence of God.
I unite to Him in such oneness. It is so deep in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. He gave His all. I unite deeply to Him when I surrender my all to Him and die to myself in the Consecration of the Mass.
I unite deeply in the Consecration. I unite deeply when I am giving my all to Him. I become one in Their Hearts. I am laid bare as when He died on the cross, and I give my all as He did. He shows us His bare body and His arms outstretched. He wants us to die to ourself. He gave Himself as a complete sacrifice to the Father. It is in giving ourself with Him, to the Father, that the Father is pleased. It is in dying to ourselves in Jesus that we rise to new life in Him. After His death came the Resurrection.
I see the mercy and graces flowing at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. In Holy Communion, He wants us especially to make reparation for our sins and the sins of others. It is at this time Mary asks us to make reparation to her heart, the Hearts crowned with thorns. Their Hearts were pierced. His with a lance, hers invisibly with swords. The wounds are deep and penetrating. Only through Jesus are we saved. He shows us the pierced Heart. It is through this Heart, we receive life and nourishment.

Song: I Love You Jesus
Song: God's Love
He is the image of the unseen God,
the firstborn of all creation,
for in him were created all things
in heaven and on earth:
and everything invisible,
thrones, ruling forces,
all things were created through him
and for him.
He exists before all things
and in him all things hold together,
and he is the Head of the Body,
that is, the Church.
He is the Beginning,
the firstborn from the dead,
so that he should be supreme in every way;
because God wanted all fullness
to be found in him
and through him
to reconcile all things to him,
everything in heaven
and everything on earth,
by making peace through his death
on the cross.
R. Christ is the head
Jesus is the Savior
We need Jesus
Psalm 100: 1-5
Acclaim Yahweh, all the earth,
serve Yahweh with gladness,
come into his presence with songs of joy!
Be sure that Yahweh is God,
he made us, we belong to him,
his people, the flock of his sheepfold.
Come within his gates giving thanks,
to his courts singing praise,
give thanks to him and bless his name!
For Yahweh is good,
his faithful love is everlasting,
his constancy from age to age.
John 8: 12
When Jesus spoke to the people again, he said:
I am the light of the world;
anyone who follows me
will not be walking in the dark,
but will have the light of life.
Acts 5: 17-26
Then the high priest intervened with all his supporters from the party of the Sadducees. Filled with jealousy, they arrested the apostles and had them put in the public gaol.
But at night the angel of the Lord opened the prison gates and said as he led them out, 'Go and take up position in the Temple, and tell the people all about this new Life.' They did as they were told; they went into the Temple at dawn and began to preach.
When the high priest arrived, he and his supporters convened the Sanhedrin-this was the full Senate of Israel-and sent to the gaol for them to be brought. But when the officials arrived at the prison they found they were not inside, so they went back and reported, 'We found the gaol securely locked and the warders on duty at the gates, but when we unlocked the door we found no one inside.' When the captain of the Temple and the chief priests heard this news they wondered what could be happening. Then a man arrived with fresh news. 'Look!' he said, 'the men you imprisoned are in the Temple. They are standing there preaching to the people.'
R. They locked the Apostles in the jail
but the lock did no good
they were freed by the angel of the Lord
God let them be freed in the night
Men can lock up our bodies
Can whip us as they did to Jesus
Put Jesus to death
But Jesus rose on the 3rd day
They were jealous of the Apostles
They locked them up
The Apostles had enemies
Jesus had enemies
When we follow Jesus we have enemies
Jesus says in John 17
John 17: 14
I passed your word on to them,
and the world hated them,
because they belong to the world
no more than I belong to the world.
R. Jesus rose from the tomb
The Apostles escaped the locked tomb
Some one can jail the body, but the heart is
what connects to God
that is real freedom
Being united to God
People persecuted for Christ's sake
are blessed by Him
We see the Apostles suffering the rejection
like Jesus so much so they
They jailed 3 children at Fatima and the
sun came as it appeared toward the earth
The world focuses on the body
Christ looks at our hearts
We unite in our hearts
All that we love is in our hearts
Love never dies
The body will die
What goes on is what we cannot touch
The body is matter, physical
God we want to be full of love
to increase in our faith and hope
to live live virtuously
to be humble
to be filled more and more with grace
to be abundantly filled with grace
to be greater one in Him
Holy Spirit Come
John 15: 16, 19
If you belonged to the world,
You did not choose me,
no, I chose you;
and I commissioned you
to go out and to bear fruit,
fruit that will last;
so that the Father will give you
anything you ask him in my name.
Jesus: I have called you to spread the Good News.
I love you so much
Focus on My presence with You
I give you Myself in the Eucharist
I love you, I love you, I love you
I am your God
I remain with you in such love
My presence in you
Focus on the God who loves you being
so one in you, loving you so much
I died for you, I rose to give you
this sharing in My life
Know Me, My child, loving you
Know My Presence
Song: Your Presence Pervades My Soul
Jesus: Be strong
Be steadfast in My love
Love Me, the Bridegroom of your Soul
A Prayer for Intimacy with the Lamb, the Bridegroom of the Soul
Oh Lamb of God, Who take away the sins of the world, come and act on my soul most intimately. I surrender myself, as I ask for the grace to let go, to just be as I exist in You and You act most intimately on my soul. You are the Initiator. I am the soul waiting Your favors as You act in me. I love You. I adore You. I worship You. Come and possess my soul with Your Divine Grace, as I experience You most intimately.
Jesus: You look for signs
Know My presence
Jesus: I am truly present in the Eucharist
I am there Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity
Know My Presence
Know My Love
Be with Me
Alone with Me
Focus on My Presence with you
I am Jesus, truly present in the Eucharist in
My Divinity and humanity
Close your eyes
Focus on My presence with you, now
When you go before the Exposed Eucharist
Focus on My presence
Focus on My love for you
Let go of all distractions
Be one with Me
I died for you
I rose on the 3rd day
Focus on My life in your graced baptized soul
Sing: Veni Sanctus Spiritus
Come, Holy Spirit, come!
And from your celestial home
Shed a ray of light divine!
Come, Father of the poor!
Come, source of all our store!
Come, within our bosoms shine!
You, of comforters the best;
You, the soul's most welcome guest;
Sweet refreshment here below;
In our Labor, rest most sweet;
Grateful coolness in the heat;
Solace in the midst of woe.
O most blessed Light divine,
Shine within these hearts of yours,
And our inmost being fill!
Where you are not, man has naught,
Nothing good in deed or thought,
Nothing free from taint of ill!
Heal our wounds, our strength renew;
On our dryness pour your dew;
Wash the stains of guilt away;
Bend the stubborn heart and will;
Melt the frozen, warm the chill;
Guide the steps that go astray.
On the faithful, who adore
And confess you, evermore
In your sev'nfold gift descend;
Give them virtue's sure reward;
Give them your salvation, Lord;
Give them joys that never end. Amen.
R. His presence - in me
His life in me
I am one in Him
Healing of that which needs healing,
One in Him
A vat of love
Perfect love casts out fear
No fear let go focus on His quiet presence
in our baptized graced soul
Quiet, Peace, Love, Healing
Let go Let go Let go
Believe God is with us
We are not alone
This is real
The burning of our heart to be embraced
by God's love
This is real
Love in Him
His presence deeply in us
Jesus Jesus Jesus
Breathe in Jesus
Let go anxiety
Feel the air fresh
Breathe in Jesus
Breathe out anxiety
Now relax a couple of breaths
Be aware of the inner room the place
inside the heart, the soul
the warmth of the Red Room
Dwelling in the Heart of Jesus
There is warmth
There is light
There is oneness with God
Knowing our heavenly Father in that
presence with Jesus
Knowing the Holy Spirit being saturated
with this sharing in His life
Calm Cool Relaxed No anxiety
God is with us
See the word God written
R. As clouds in a blue sky
Fluttering a little, but never moving
from the mark
Now a reddish glow of light begins
to settle in the sky like the
Sun on fire close by, but you
only see the glow of a fiery sky
And the words
R. remain, but flutter left right,
up down as clouds do
Then the surround light is brilliantly
red like the hottest fire and
the words God show as the
white heat of the most brilliant
embrace of love you ever knew
It is real
God is with you now
Focus on presence
The picture fades to a mass of red
and golden light
You know presence
Being wrapped in love
Now see yourself so one in this light
with God only presence
That place inside
Call love embrace Knowing God
Knowing Rapture and peace
Oh God let me know presence
Get in touch with my heart and soul
so one with You
My almighty God
Jesus truly present in the Eucharist
exposed before me
Jesus wants me to incessantly say
"I love You, God; I love You, God;
I love You, God"
To feel presence of God with me
In my heart, in my soul
Life in Him
And there is love
And there is love
Real love for which I was created to
know to exist in to move
away from the hustle and bustle and
to be so one in Him
So I say as St. Paul
Galatians 2: 19-20
...I have been crucified with Christ and yet I am alive; yet it is no longer I, but Christ living in me.
R. This is reality
This is love
This is life in Him
This is life in the Heart of Jesus
To be bathed with His love
I pray to the Holy Spirit to pray for me for what I need
I surrender to God the Holy Spirit to pray
for me I am one in Him
I need His praying in me
I let go I surrender to God the Holy Spirit
to handle my cares now as I unite
so intimately in this love embrace with
I know the place
I know God in me
I exist in Him
he showers me with His love
Prayer for Union with Jesus
Come to me, Lord, and possess my soul. Come into my heart and permeate my soul. Help me to sit in silence with You and let You work in my heart.
I am Yours to possess. I am Yours to use. I want to be selfless and only exist in You. Help me to spoon out all that is me and be an empty vessel ready to be filled by You. Help me to die to myself and live only for You. Use me as You will. Let me never draw my attention back to myself. I only want to operate as You do, dwelling within me.
I am Yours, Lord. I want to have my life in You. I want to do the will of the Father. Give me the strength to put aside the world and let You operate my very being. Help me to act as You desire. Strengthen me against the distractions of the devil to take me from Your work.
When I worry, I have taken my focus off of You and placed it on myself. Help me not to give in to the promptings of others to change what in my heart You are making very clear to me. I worship You, I adore You and I love You. Come and dwell in me now.
-God's Blue Book, January 17, 1994
R. To be possessed by God for all eternity
To focus on the interior life of the Trinity
To see through the eyes of love
To see through the eyes of the heavenly Father

knowing the Holy Spirit is sanctifying us, always
Bringing us forth more and more in the image

|Guiding Light homily series - Steadfast to the Son - Cycle A The sunflower is a great example of how we should be steadfastly guided by light. What a powerful thought that this exceptional plant is not stuck in one pose day in and day out, yet adaptable and magnetized to the sun. We feel the same about our Son. Our heads turns to face Christ as each day presents its challenges to find light. We join together like plants in a field and soak up the Son through the pulpit.

Cycle B's homilies are a "guiding light" to help us realize Jesus' Messianic greatness and His promise of better things to come. $15|

It is no wonder that we may often feel disconnected and famished at our week's end. In Fr. Joe's third book of homilies from Cycle C, we are reminded of the charity that Christ intended us to show each other. We have a calling to turn the other cheek and be the Good Samaritan to others. We are rewarded with the Father's kingdom and love when we are not worthy. We are not left alone or hungry. $15|

|Priestly Newsletter - 2000 #1 - CD. - Christ is Our Strength - Fr. Edward Carter, S.J. read it the year he died. It is so beautiful. "This brief passage contains one of the greatest lessons of the spiritual life. As we progress along our spiritual journey, we become increasingly aware of how weak we are in our-selves, but how strong we are in Christ. To experience our weakness involves suffering. The degree and kind of suffering can vary. The suffering can include the experience of the classical dark night of the spirit as described by St. John of the Cross. One of the main purposes of the dark night is to make a person keenly aware of his or her helplessness without God." quote by Fr. Carter from the newsletter $10|
|Priestly Newsletter - 2000 #2 - CD. - Suffering: A Source of Life - Fr. Edward Carter, S.J. read it the year he died. Fr. Carter knew suffering that year. His voice is so powerful as he read each Newsletter from his heart and soul. "Every man has his own share in the redemption. Each one is also called to share in that suffering through which the redemption was accomplished. He is called to share in that suffering through which all human suffering has also been redeemed. In bringing about the redemption through suffering, Christ has also raised human suffering to the level of the redemption. Thus each man in his suffering can also become a sharer in the redemptive suffering of Christ..." quote by Fr. Carter from the newsletter $10|
