                June 26, 2011 - The Most Holy Body and Blood of Jesus
 

 

Mark 14: 12-16, 22-26

On the first day of Unleavened Bread, when the Passover lamb was sacrificed, his disciples said to him, 'Where do you want us to go and make the preparations for you to eat the Passover?' So he sent two of his disciples, saying to them, 'Go into the city and you will meet a man carrying a pitcher of water. Follow him, and say to the owner of the house which he enters, "The Master says: Where is the room for me to eat the Passover with my disciples?" He will show you a large upper room furnished with couches, all prepared. Make the preparations for us there.' The disciples set out and went to the city and found everything as he had told them, and prepared the Passover.

And as they were eating he took bread, and when he had said the blessing he broke it and gave it to them. 'Take it,' he said, 'this is my body.' Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he handed it to them, and all drank from it, and he said to them, 'This is my blood, the blood of the covenant, poured out for many. In truth I tell you, I shall never drink wine any more until the day I drink the new wine in the kingdom of God.' After the psalms had been sung they left for the Mount of Olives.

 

Through Him, With Him In Him

                R. Christ feeds us with His Body
                    and Blood —

                God let us receive Your
                    Body and Blood —
                This Sacred Meal

                This setting of the first reading is
                    on the East side of the River —

                Moses is giving them some last minute
                    instructions before he leaves them —

                God sustains us with the Flesh
                    and Blood of His Son Jesus —
                    the Bread of Life —

 

Deuteronomy 8: 2-3, 14-16

Remember the long road by which Yahweh your God led you for forty years in the desert, to humble you, to test you and know your inmost heart — whether you would keep his commandments or not. He humbled you, he made you feel hunger, he fed you with manna which neither you nor your ancestors had ever known, to make you understand that human beings live not on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of Yahweh.    

Do not then forget Yahweh your God who brought you out of Egypt, out of the place of slave–labour, who guided you through this vast and dreadful desert, a land of fiery snakes, scorpions, thirst; who in this waterless place brought you water out of the flinty rock; who in this desert fed you with manna unknown to your ancestors. 

   

                R. Moses says remember the hunger —
                    remember you were fed
                    with Manna —

                Do not forget God who brought you
                    out of Egypt —

                Do not forget the scorpions etc. —

   

Psalm 147: 12-13, 14-15, 19-20
  

Praise Yahweh, Jerusalem, 
Zion, praise your God. 

For he gives strength to the bars of your gates, 
he blesses your children within you, 
he maintains the peace of your frontiers, 
gives you your fill of finest wheat. 

He sends his word to the earth, 
his command runs quickly, 

He reveals his word to Jacob, 
his statutes and judgements to Israel. 
For no other nation has he done this, 
no other has known his judgements.

   

1 Corinthians 10: 16-17

The blessing–cup, which we bless, is it not a sharing in the blood of Christ; and the loaf of bread which we break, is it not a sharing in the body of Christ? And as there is one loaf, so we, although there are many of us, are one single body, for we all share in the one loaf.

 

John 6: 51-58

    I am the living bread 
       which has come down from heaven.
    Anyone who eats this bread
       will live for ever;
    and the bread that I shall give
    is my flesh, for the life of the world.’

      Then the Jews started arguing among themselves, ‘How can this man give us his flesh to eat?’ Jesus replied to them:

    In all truth I tell you,
    if you do not eat
       the flesh of the Son of man
    and drink his blood,
    you have no life in you.
    Anyone who does eat my flesh
       and drink my blood
    has eternal life,
    and I shall raise that person up
       on the last day.
    For my flesh is real food
    and my blood is real drink.
    Whoever eats my flesh
       and drinks my blood
    lives in me
    and I live in that person.
    As the living Father sent me
    and I draw life from the Father,
    so whoever eats me
       will also draw life from me.
    This is the bread
       which has come down from heaven;
    it is not like the bread our ancestors ate:
    they are dead,
    but anyone who eats this bread
       will live for ever.

 

 

                R. Jesus teaching is so important to
                    eternal life —

                Fr. Joe said

                    You went to the doctor —
                    He said you only have 6 months to live
                    But the doctor had medicine — no
                        side effects —

                You knew your doctor for years —

                She, (the doctor), said you would live 20-30 years
                    if you take this medicine —
                    despite your disease —

                Jesus tells us —

   

John 6: 51-58

    I am the living bread 
       which has come down from heaven.
    Anyone who eats this bread
       will live for ever;
    and the bread that I shall give
    is my flesh, for the life of the world.’

      Then the Jews started arguing among themselves, ‘How can this man give us his flesh to eat?’ Jesus replied to them:

    In all truth I tell you,
    if you do not eat
       the flesh of the Son of man
    and drink his blood,
    you have no life in you.
    Anyone who does eat my flesh
       and drink my blood
    has eternal life,
    and I shall raise that person up
       on the last day.
    For my flesh is real food
    and my blood is real drink.
    Whoever eats my flesh
       and drinks my blood
    lives in me
    and I live in that person.
    As the living Father sent me
    and I draw life from the Father,
    so whoever eats me
       will also draw life from me.
    This is the bread
       which has come down from heaven;
    it is not like the bread our ancestors ate:
    they are dead,
    but anyone who eats this bread
       will live for ever.

   

                R. Jesus said "how can that be"

                The answer is only by faith

                Sing: Bread of Life —

                Jesus says —
                    Amen, Amen —
                    that means He is really serious —

                To have eternal life — Jesus said
                    you need to eat His flesh —
                    Many followers left then —
                    Jesus didn't call them back —
                    They understood Him —
                    They left —
                    The Apostles stayed —

                Jesus said to the Apostles —
                    "Do you want to leave too?"

                Peter said —
                    "Lord, to who shall we go?"

                This is really the Body and Blood of Jesus —
                The Eucharist is Jesus' Body and Blood —

                It is the source of eternal life —

                Jesus says: I am the vine —
                    you are the branches —

                Moses told them not to forget what
                    God did for them —

                Today's Feast tells us — not to forget
                    what Jesus does for us in giving
                    us His Body and Blood

                Christ ransomed us with His Blood —

     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.

                    We pray for an increase in our faith.

Body and Blood of Christ

May 25, 2008

I find it interesting that in John’s gospel the word “flesh” is used instead of “body,” as in “this is my body,’ which the wording the other gospels use. The word “body” is more abstract, whereas “flesh” is more concrete; it conjures up images of bone and muscle and tendons and skin. In John’s gospel Jesus is telling us when he gives us himself to eat, it is really his body, not just some abstract concept. The appearance, the taste, the feel and color remain as bread and wine, so we can make him our food and drink for eternal life.

 

                (8)

 

Body and Blood of Christ - May 25, 2008 continues

It is interesting that so many people believe the Son of God became human but cannot become bread and wine. At Christmas our churches are full and we celebrate the birth of Jesus, the Son of God who became a little baby in order to share our life. Yet, some of the same people have difficulty believing God cannot become bread and wine. When I try to picture this, I realize that the nature of God is as far from us as the most distant galaxy, while it’s relatively just a short hop, skip and a jump between being human and being bread and wine which is made up of the same stuff we are. For those who do believe in the mystery and the miracle, however, the biggest danger is for the believer to lose their sense of awe because the Eucharist has been made so easily available to us.

 

                (9) Body and Blood of Christ - May 25, 2008 continues

There are many ways to approach today’s mystery. One of my favorite ways is to think of it in terms of energy. Think of an acorn and an acorn sized stone. They might look similar, but one is full of life ready to break out and grow into a tree, and the other will never do anything but be a stone. One has the energy of life within it and the other does not. We look at the host. It doesn’t look any different after the consecration than it did before, but a whole new energy replaced what was there before: a divine energy that promises: “Whoever eats this bread will live forever.” Eating healthy food calls for discipline. It’s so easy and convenient to fill our bodies with junk. Jesus is giving us something healthy, but it requires more discipline on Saturday evening or Sunday morning to get to Church than it does to laying in bed or watching TV or to go to some sporting event. In today’s feast the Church reminds us of the great gift Christ has given us, himself. What greater gift of love can a person give than their own selves? May we not take it for granted!

A Prayer before the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass

    Let me be a holy sacrifice and unite with God in the sacrament of His greatest love.

    I want to be one in Him in this act of love, where He gives Himself to me and I give myself as a sacrifice to Him. Let me be a holy sacrifice as I become one with Him in this my act of greatest love to Him.

    Let me unite with Him more, that I may more deeply love Him. May I help make reparation to His adorable Heart and the heart of His Mother, Mary. With greatest love, I offer myself to You and pray that You will accept my sacrifice of greatest love. I give myself to You and unite in Your gift of Yourself to me. Come and possess my soul.

    Cleanse me, strengthen me, heal me. Dear Holy Spirit act in the heart of Mary to make me more and more like Jesus.

    Father, I offer this my sacrifice, myself united to Jesus in the Holy Spirit to You. Help me to love God more deeply in this act of my greatest love.

    Give me the grace to grow in my knowledge, love and service of You and for this to be my greatest participation in the Mass. Give me the greatest graces to love You so deeply in this Mass, You who are so worthy of my love.

                The Descent of Holy Spirit on the Apostles

                (1) Acts of the Apostles 2:1-4 

When Pentecost day came round, they had all met together, when suddenly there came from heaven a sound as of a violent wind which filled the entire house in which they were sitting; and there appeared to them tongues as of fire; these separated and came to rest on the head of each of them. They were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak different languages as the Spirit gave them power to express themselves.

                (2) Sing: Veni Sancte Spiritus

                (3) From the Lectionary

                        Pentecost Sequence

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.
Alleluia.

Pentecost

May 15, 2005

HOMILY – (Acts 2:1-11, 1 Corinthians 12:3b-7, 12-13, John 20:19-23) Pentecost is one of the three most important feasts of the Church year. We know Christmas is one of the three. It’s easy to get excited about the birth of a baby, especially when the baby is God’s Son and his mother is the Virgin Mary. We know the feast of Jesus’ resurrection is the most important feast of all, because if there were no resurrection, we would have no faith or hope at all. But Pentecost, the third most important feast, seems like another ordinary Sunday.

                (5) Pentecost - May 15, 2005 continues

Let me give you a little history of Pentecost. It was not invented by the Church. The Jews were celebrating Pentecost 3000 years ago. It was one of their three most important feasts. It was originally a harvest feast on which the first fruits were offered in gratitude to God. It later came to be celebrated as the anniversary of the giving of the Law to Moses on Mt. Sinai. The word itself means simply 50th, the 50th day after Jewish Passover. The Jews were celebrating that feast when the Spirit came on Jesus’ followers. And so Pentecost is still celebrated, but we who are Christians celebrate it as the day on which God sent his Holy Spirit upon the Church.

                (6) Pentecost - May 15, 2005 continues

Pentecost isn’t just the celebration of a past event. It is important for us today, because the Holy Spirit is important for us today. The Spirit is hard to picture because the Spirit is within us when we are in God’s grace. The Spirit is like the air we breathe, the light that goes on when we have an idea, the fire that burns in our heart. And so the Scriptures use these symbols help us know the Spirit; in the first reading the Spirit is a strong driving wind whereas in John’s gospel the Spirit is the gentle breath of Jesus who breathes on his apostles and says “Receive the Holy Spirit.” In either case the Spirit is like the air, unable to be seen, but something we cannot live without. The Spirit is like the light that goes on in our mind when we have an idea: Jesus tells us in the gospel “he will guide you to all truth.” Jesus couldn’t explain everything to the apostles that he wanted them to know, but the Spirit turned on the light in their minds to be able to understand all that he had been teaching them. The Spirit also appeared to the apostles as tongues of fire, a fire that started burning in them to proclaim Christ with courage and conviction.

                (7)

 

 

Pentecost - May 15, 2005 continues

When we pray, the Spirit is at work in us, helping us to pray. God wants us to know him and love him and the Spirit helps us to do that. But because the Spirit works within us, we are not aware the Spirit is even there. There was a example given by C.S. Lewis about how we grow in knowledge of the universe around us. If we want to know something about rocks, for example, we go and we find rocks. They won’t come to us, they won’t run away from us. In no way do they cooperate with us in getting to know them. The initiative is all on our side if we are to know rocks. If we want to study wild animals, that’s a little different. We have to go find them and then they can run away from us. We have to be very quiet in observing them or they will. The initiative is mostly on our part if we are to know about wild animals, but they can attempt to prevent us from knowing them. If we want to know another human being, and they are determined for us not to know them, we probably won’t. We have to win their confidence if they are going to open up to us. The initiative is equally divided: it takes two to make a friendship. When it comes to God, there is no way we could find him or know him if he didn’t show himself to us. And he has done so in Jesus Christ. But we cannot not know Jesus Christ without the help of the Spirit. As Paul tells us in today’s second reading: “No one can say Jesus is Lord except in the Holy Spirit.” Without the Spirit God is really unknown to us. …” The Spirit makes us constantly aware of God’s presence with us and God’s love for us. The Spirit helps the Scriptures come alive for us because through them God speaks to us.

                (8) Pentecost - May 15, 2005 continues

And this relationship with God spills over into everything else we do. And so St. Paul tells us in Galatians: if we live by the Spirit, the Spirit will produce in us love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, humility, and self-control.” Most of us also are familiar with Paul’s description of the greatest gift of the Spirit: “I may be able to speak the languages of men and even angels, but if have not love, my speech is no more than a noisy gong or a clanging bell…Love is patient and kind, love is not jealous, etc, etc.

                (9) Pentecost - May 15, 2005 continues

One last point: it was on the Church, that God sent his Spirit. As the first reading tells us Christ followers were all together in one place. And the Spirit gives different gifts to different members of the Church to help each other to know and experience God and God’s love. If we want to experience the fullness of the Spirit, we need each other, we need to come together, to worship together, to share our gifts with one another. Without the Spirit we are trying to breathe without air, think without light, love without fire.

                (10) Holy Spirit Prayer

Come, Holy Spirit, almighty Sanctifier, God of love, who filled the Virgin Mary with grace, who wonderfully changed the hearts of the apostles, who endowed all Your martyrs with miraculous courage, come and sanctify us. Enlighten our minds, strengthen our wills, purify our consciences, rectify our judgment, set our hearts on fire, and preserve us from the misfortunes of resisting Your inspirations. Amen.

 

 

                The Assumption

                (1) Revelation 11: 19; 12: 1-6 

    Then the sanctuary of God in heaven opened, and the ark of the covenant could be seen inside it. Then came flashes of lightning, peals of thunder and an earthquake and violent hail.

Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman, robed with the sun, standing on the moon, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. She was pregnant, and in labour, crying aloud in the pangs of childbirth. Then a second sign appeared in the sky: there was a huge red dragon with seven heads and ten horns, and each of the seven heads crowned with a coronet. Its tail swept a third of the stars from the sky and hurled them to the ground, and the dragon stopped in front of the woman as she was at the point of giving birth, so that it could eat the child as soon as it was born. The woman was delivered of a boy, the son who was to rule all the nations with an iron sceptre, and the child was taken straight up to God and to his throne, while the woman escaped into the desert, where God had prepared a place for her to be looked after for twelve hundred and sixty days.

                (2) From the Cycle A - Guiding Light - Steadfast to the Son

Feast of the Assumption
August 15, 2008

INTRODUCTION ON THE FEAST: (Rev. 11, 19a; 12, 1-6a, 10ab; I Cor. 15, 20-27; Lk. 1, 39-56) The book of Revelation is highly symbolic. Some of the symbolism is quite obvious while it requires a fairly extensive knowledge of Scripture to interpret some of the other symbols. In today’s first reading we hear about a woman, a child and a dragon. The dragon is the devil and the powers of evil at work in the world. The child is Christ. The woman in our reading has a double symbolism. She stands for Mary, the physical mother of Jesus Christ, and she stands for the Church, our spiritual mother who brings Jesus Christ to birth in us through faith and the sacraments. In today’s passage the woman is rescued from the powers of the dragon and is described in great glory. This too has a double symbolism. It symbolizes the glory of Mary in the assumption. It also symbolizes God’s faithful people whom he will rescue from evil and will bring, in the resurrection from the dead, into the glory of heaven.

                (3) Feast of the Assumption - August 15, 2008 continues

HOMILY: Today’s feast tells us that there is more to life than what we know and see right now. The feast is about Mary, but it’s about us too, God’s plan to raise us to new life to share with God eternal happiness. Mary gets to enjoy this privilege first after Jesus himself.

                (4) Feast of the Assumption - August 15, 2008 continues

It is recorded nowhere in Scripture when, where or how Mary died. Nor do the Scriptures tell us about her assumption. It has been a part, however, of the very ancient tradition of the Church that Mary was assumed bodily into heavenly glory when her life here on earth was ended. One example comes from 450 in an early document where St. Juvenal, the Bishop of Jerusalem was asked by the emperor of Constantinople to bring the body of Mary to Constantinople. He replied to the emperor that Mary had died in the presence of all the apostles. But her tomb, when opened upon the request of St. Thomas, was found empty. Thus the apostles concluded that her body was taken up to heaven as Jesus was.

                (5) Feast of the Assumption - August 15, 2008 continues

Some people belittle tradition as if it were unimportant. They claim to believe only the written words of the Scriptures. Yet, if we stop and think about it, we would have no Scriptures without tradition for the Scriptures came from the Church’s tradition. For example, the earliest New Testament writings we have are the letters of Paul, the first of which was written about the year 51 A.D. Of our four gospels, Mark’s is the first and it was written about 70 A.D. I say this so you can see the importance of tradition. The Church had only its tradition to go on until Paul and the evangelists started writing 20, 30, 40 years after Christ, at the earliest. So to say that the knowledge of the assumption of Mary came from the very early tradition of the Church is to give a lot of weight to this teaching. But to eliminate any question as to whether Mary actually was assumed into heavenly glory, the Holy Father, Pope Pius XII, after reviewing the belief of the Church through the ages, made it a dogma of our faith in 1950.

                (6) Feast of the Assumption - August 15, 2008 continues

In today’s gospel St. Luke tells us about Mary who is a young girl going to visit her much older cousin Elizabeth. Mary had just been visited by the angel, and she had accepted the invitation to be the mother of the Savior God was sending to his people. So she is at this moment unmarried and yet pregnant through the power of the Holy Spirit It was not a happy situation to be in. She could have been rejected by her husband to be, she could have been rejected by her family or could even have been put to death. Yet she is full of trust in God and praises God's greatness and God's goodness. There is no expression of “poor me.” She is entirely focused on God. Mary shows us how to be trusting and in her assumption she shows us where that trust will lead us.

                (7) Feast of the Assumption - August 15, 2008 continues

Today’s feast honors Mary, for God himself has honored her. In her openness to God and in her willingness to always do whatever God wanted, God rewarded her in a unique way. But today’s feast also is a source of hope for us. Christ came, as he tells us in St. John’s gospel, that we might have the fullness of life. Our bodies too will share in that fullness as the Scriptures tell us so clearly. So Mary is allowed to enjoy ahead of time what God’s plan is for all of us who are faithful in following him and serving him.

                (8) 1 Chronicles 15: 3-4, 15-16; 16: 1-2

David then summoned all Israel to Jerusalem, to move the ark of Yahweh to the place which he had prepared for it. David also called the sons of Aaron and the Levites together:

and the Levites carried the ark of God with the shafts on their shoulders, as Moses had ordered in accordance with the word of Yahweh. David also told the heads of the Levites to appoint their kinsmen as singers with the accompaniment of musical instruments, lyres, harps, and cymbals to play joyfully.

They brought the ark of God in and put it inside the tent which David had erected for it, and brought burnt offerings and made communion sacrifices in God's presence. And when David had finished making burnt offerings and communion sacrifices, he blessed the people in the name of Yahweh.

                (9) Sing: Holy Is His Name

                (10) 1 Corinthians 15: 54-57

And after this perishable nature has put on imperishability and this mortal nature has put on immortality, then will the words of scripture come true: Death is swallowed up in victory. Death, where is your victory? Death, where is your sting? The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin comes from the Law. Thank God, then, for giving us the victory through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Feast of the Immaculate Conception

December 8, 2007

INTRODUCTION – (Genesis 3: 9-15, 20, Ephesians 1: 3-6, 11-12, Luke 1: 26-38) The feast today is about Mary’s conception, that from the instant she began to exist on this earth, indeed from her very conception, she was holy, without sin and filled with God’s grace. The gospel today can confuse us somewhat because it tells us about Jesus’ conception. It was read, however, because of the greeting the angel used in appearing to her: “Hail, full of grace.” Our feast celebrates that there was no moment in Mary’s life when there was sin, no moment when God’s grace did not fill her.

                (4) Feast of the Immaculate Conception - December 8, 2007 continues

HOMILY – As we listen in on this conversation between Mary and the Angel, we learn both about Mary and about the child she will give birth to. Mary’s child would be Son of the Most High and king forever. He will be called “holy, the Son of God.”

This is why Mary was “full of grace,” so she could give birth to God’s own Son, who would be the source of all holiness. We need to know this, not so that we can put Jesus and Mary on a pedestal and admire them from afar. Jesus, the holy one of God came to us so that we too can become holy. This is what St. Paul tells us in today’s second reading: “God chose us in him to be holy and blameless in his sight.”

                (5) Feast of the Immaculate Conception - December 8, 2007 continues

Most of us do not think of our vocation as a call to holiness. We all want to get to heaven, but most of us think of holiness as reserved for other people, like St. Francis or Mother Teresa. Most of us are content to leave holiness for someone else. We just want to get through heaven’s doors. But no one will get to heaven unless they are holy, for holiness means being close to God and sharing God’s life. And that’s what God’s grace does for us: it unites us with God and allows us to share in God’s life. If we are in God’s grace, then, we are holy people.

                (6) Feast of the Immaculate Conception - December 8, 2007 continues

Two stories we heard today tell us of our vocation to be holy: The story in our first reading is about Adam and Eve, our first parents, who originally were very close to God and in their union with God, they were very happy. That was the symbol of the Garden of Eden. But they got greedy! They wanted to be equal to God. The evil one knew how to manipulate them and lead them to ignore God’s command. As a result they lost all they had. The second story in the gospel illustrates Mary’s constant attitude of being willing to say “yes” to God, an openness that prepared the way for the Son of God to come to us.

                (7) Feast of the Immaculate Conception - December 8, 2007 continues

When we were baptized we were filled with God’s life, we were born again in God’s grace. The very same grace that filled Mary at the moment of her conception, filled us when we were baptized. None of us will ever be as holy as Mary was. She got a head start on all of us. But if we follow the example of Mary, always ready to say “yes” to God, that will lead us to holiness and to the joy and peace and love that comes with it.

                (8) Sing: Hail Mary Gentle Woman

                (9) Sing: Our Lady of Clearwater

                (10) Sing: See the Eyes that Look at Mary

The Pain - Naples, Florida

R. He spread His arms, He gave His all, Jesus, the Son of God, the greatest sacrifice, He gave Himself entirely for the good of all men. He opened His arms, He died on the cross.

His arms were covered with blood, His arms so weak and filled with pain, wounded. His arms, the pain shot up His arms and the final blow to each arm a nail through each precious hand.

All the agony He experienced, all the pain, and the crown, to each arm, a nail hammered into the hand.

All the nerves cut and severed by the nail, the pain shooting up His precious arms, the final blow given to His most precious members.

The legs that carried Him, that carried the heavy cross, the legs that were forced and cajoled, that continues to Calvary - the legs weakened, skinned, bleeding, beaten, burned, the legs that knew patience and perseverance, the legs connected to a sore foot that was rubbed and gashed and bleeding, the members of Jesus, filled with such pain and exhaustion, now is crowned with the final glory. The nail that was driven into the foot, the pain shot up this already weakened leg, covered with blood and wounds and pain, the final blow, the nerves severed by the hammered nail.

A blow to each hand, a blow to each foot, a blow to the head, a stamping that pressed down and continued in excruciating pain.

Jesus: They numbered all My bones. They gave Me vinegar and gall to drink. They gave Me a cloth to wipe My blood-covered flesh.

What did they give to Me? Love is giving, My dear ones. How many of you are wounded when you are not given things by your brothers you love?

My members were in such pain, the pain shot up My arms. My legs were so weak I could scarce move them. I was filled with pain within them.

To all who watched, they saw a man, weakened and covered with blood and wounds. They did not see the pain inside that shot up My legs and arms, the nerves inside My body that sent signals of deep pain to My central nervous system. They did not see the nerves inside sending pain signals everywhere.

The final blow being to each hand and foot, the severing of My nerves by the blunt and rusted nails.

An arm extended. A final blow. I beheld a nail pounded into My hand and the pain shot up My arms, unbearable to a human mind.

Do you know of the pain within My body? Signals sending messages of deep pain everywhere. I knew all of these sufferings in the garden. So great were the sufferings to My mind, I sweat blood.

My flesh was covered with wounds. My arms were stretched from their sockets. My body was beaten and bleeding, every inch of My body covered with deep wounds. But, My loved ones, you miss the depth of My love. My wounds were so deep, but the final wound, the pounding of the nails in My hands and feet, a severing of the nerves, an ending of the deepest pain, to experience even deeper pain, beyond your human comprehension, it was done to the Almighty God, a Divine Person, I suffered the final blow to each member.

The pounding in the hands and feet, the crown to each member, and they numbered all My bones. My nerves a network of pain running throughout My entire body.

The pain within the body, the pain recorded in My loving head, the pain sent by a network of nerves in My body, now records the final blows, the nails in the hands and feet, the pain being recorded from every thorn that pierced My skull, every gash to My body, the pain, the pain, the pain - a network of signals and pain, running through My body and the final hour, the pains recorded on the cross, arms outstretched - a surrendering to all pain. I surrendered to a body laden with pain.

You focus on your little problems, your little aches and pains. You discuss them and show the world your pin pricks and sufferings.

Do you want to know holiness and love? They gave Me vinegar mixed with gall. This was their offering. They gave Me a cross. They crowned My head with a crown of thorns.

This, My dear ones, is suffering, My beloved souls, I gave My life for and this is their return.

A severing of My nerves, the final blows to all the aches and pains recorded in My nervous system. This was one of the final blows - the rusted nails pounded into My hands.

You will feel little aches and pains in your hands and feet to remind you of this message. Your understanding of the immense pain within will deepen. What was visible to the eye on My battered body was nothing compared to the pains within. I gave My all. I gave My insides, My mind, My Heart, wounded for the love of men.

All functions in the body were stopped.

The final curtain, blood and water pouring out from My Heart, show that all functions of the body had ended.

R. All signals that carried messages of immense pain had ended, the final act of surrender for God to die to this human body and surrender His flesh.

Jesus: And end, a beginning, the water and blood flowed from My Heart, the beginning of My life in the Church, life flowing into your spirit.

R. Come give me life, abundant life. I thirst to be with Thee.

Jesus: My blood was spent. My human flesh and blood offered as the sacrifice, the sacrifice of Calvary is now made present at every Mass.

An end, a beginning, and the grace and life flow through the sacraments in the Church. My life flows to you in the Mass. Mary, the Mediatrix of all grace, stands by the side of the altar and the grace flows from the Father, through My body offered up as a sacrifice in the Holy Spirit, given through the Mothership of Mary to you in the Church.

You stand under the cross with My Mother and you receive the gift given, My Body, My Blood.

R. Man is reconciled with the Father through the Divine Person, Jesus Christ, and you receive His life poured out to you as Calvary is made present in the unbloody sacrifice of Jesus Christ.

Do you feel the graces poured out to you at this sacrifice of the Son of God at every Mass? Do you feel the presence of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit and Mary, all the angels and saints, and the souls in purgatory? Do you feel united as one at the sacrifice of Calvary sacramentally made present upon the altar through the priest? The priest who now puts on Christ and through Him the dispenser of this life given to man.

Jesus: Oh, My beloved ones, love so dearly your priest. Give him such reverence. He is the chosen instrument of God and you treat him with such ordinariness. You are so blind and so dumb in your ways.

And they numbered all My bones. Each nerve carrying a message of My love of mankind, each member in My Church carrying a special message, all united as one working in harmony according to the Father's will, each carrying a message of love to one another.

The body is many members, you are the messengers of My love. Christ is the head. The message does not flow as it should when some are cut off from the Head.

They nailed My hands and feet and My nerves were severed by the nails, such pain, undescribable in words, the severing of My nerves from the body, the severing of many members from the body of Christ.

My Body given for all on the cross, the network of nerves within carrying the messages of My love to all mankind. My body covered on the outside with blood and wounded, the pain recorded within.

Your Church, covered with blood on the outside, the slaughter of innocent babies, the homosexuality, the sins of the flesh, the members that have severed themselves from the source by their sins, but the pain is carried in the nerves inside. The blood of the Lamb shed for each and every soul, the real pain carried within. The life is weakened in your Church because the love of God is so weak in many members. The messages of love are not being transmitted as they should be. Your body shows the wounds, but your pain within is the root of the problems. The pain is from the messages of love that are not being transmitted.

Unless you seek to fill your priests and sisters with the fire of God's love, fill their hearts with burning love for God, your Church will continue to show the marks of the blood shed without. I give to you these letters as a mighty medicine for this world, directed to make men's hearts burn with love of God and love of one another. The rosaries are meditations and messages given from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

These messages will make men's hearts burn with fire for love of God.

You have ignored the importance of these letters.

I send to you the mighty medicine to heal a hurting world.

My priests and religious need these messages. The love of God will be transmitted to the Church from these messages when you circulate these letters.

The devil has blocked the minds of men involved in these messages because of their importance to the world and the Church.

I am speaking to you, the founder, to help to get these messages published and circulated as soon as possible. I give to you a mighty medicine for a sick world.

Read St. Thomas Aquinas about the medicine for the sick Church.

You know what these messages have done for you. I am Jesus. I give to you the mighty medicine for a sick world, for a sick Church, rosaries and letters from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

Your Church shows the wounds of bloodshed, abortion, homosexuality, sins of the flesh, murder of little children's minds with sex education in Catholic schools and you hold back the gifts of God's love I am giving to the Church and this world.

My arms were weak and wounded but the final blow as the nail put in My hand. It severed the nerves.

The final blow is the bloodshed in the Church, the slaughtering of children's minds in Catholic schools. My children are pure and innocent. They are not being taught messages of God's love, they are being taught messages of sick sex and coldness.

Men's hearts have turned cold. They have been severed from the life of the body. The body is decaying from within. Only with the love of God enkindled in men's hearts will this bloodshed stop.

I beg you to publish and circulate these messages in the Church. I am Jesus. I am giving you the mighty medicine for the world. Your body wears the marks of the bloodshed, only with messages of My on-fire love will it stop.

Mary leads you to Jesus. Never is she the end. The Father has a plan. Mary's messages have led men and will lead men to Jesus. Satan has tried to stop all efforts to publish and circulate these messages. I am the Almighty God. The funds will come when you circulate and publish these messages and rosaries under the Shepherds of Christ Publishing. I am working with the founder and Rita as messenger to renew the Church and the world. Each messenger has a very vital role in the Father's plan. The significance of these messages are being overlooked. You are not studying the messages as a whole and their content. There are five unpublished Blue Books and more than four Rosary Books which I and My Mother have given to this world in the last 14 months. I have also given 15 songs of My love. I am begging you to see to the recording and publishing of this music. I beg you to listen. This is the mighty medicine for the Church and the world to draw men to the burning love of Jesus. Please harken to My call. I will send you the money. You must study and read these messages. This is a fulfillment of Fatima - these messages were given to bring priests to the burning love of Jesus. I am Jesus, your beloved Savior.

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
