                July 1, 2011 - Feast of the Sacred Heart

                God says: Can you share the rainbow —



                R. A person says
                "It's my rainbow, don't look
                    at it"

                Jesus says: It's your rainbow to
                    share and remember"

                R. The person can say "I saw it
                    first — it's mine"

                How silly to try to possess a rainbow
                    given by God —
                    the sun, the air —

                Will you share the air with me?

                In this we all unite —

                The sun is put over us to share —

                The rain comes and it isn't given
                    to one man —

                In this we see the universal truth —

                Men were put on this earth to share —

                At an early age, a baby doesn't want
                    to share —
                    children playing with a toy want to keep it and
                    the the other child seeing a toy in the
                    hands of another — surrounded
|                    by a million toys — wants the one
                    toy in the hands of the other —

                The wounded human nature comes
                    out in impure, selfish ways —

                We learn about living — being corrected
                    by our parents, guardians — watching
                    others live —

                Some of these lessons coming from wounded
                    others are impure, selfish,
                    possessive —

                What makes someone want to control
                    others or possess others or
                    even take others' things —

                We want people to know God is over us
                    now, now, now —

                God is giving us His love —
                That love doesn't run out —
                The sun is shining on me - now —
                The sun is shining on others —
                The sun is helping the plants to grow —
                The sun is a gift for us — for us —

                The air I am breathing is air that
                    is given to me — to you — to us —
                    to God's family —

                When I go to Mass today I receive
                    the Body and Blood of Jesus —
                    All over the world on the Feast
                    of the Sacred Heart, people will receive
                    the Body and Blood of Jesus at
                    Communion —

                One body in Him —


    John 17: 20-23

I pray not only for these
but also for those
who through their teaching
will come to believe in me.
May they all be one,
just as, Father, you are in me
   and I am in you,
so that they also may be in us,
so that the world may believe
it was you who sent me.
I have given them the glory
   you gave to me,
that they may be one as we are one.
With me in them and you in me,
may they be so perfected in unity
that the world will recognise
   that it was you who sent me
and that you have loved them
as you have loved me.

Cling to Me

May 13, 1993 

Jesus: My dear child, if you stay close to Me, then I live in you and you live in Me. I am He Who created you and I love you with such an intensity that you will never know. My words are your truth. You must abide in My heart in all things. There is no room for doubt. My ways are steadfast, direct, and without error.

    You must stay rooted in Me to ward off the power of the evil one. His grip is paralyzing and crippling. His power is stronger every day.

    When you live in Me, I am in your heart and he has no power over Me. I am your God. I am your true lover. I want to protect you. I want to guard you from this force. Stay rooted firmly in Me and he will have no power.

    I am He Who comforts you. My hand is upon you. Hold tight to Me, My child. My eyes are fixed right on you. You are My most precious child. I love you as no other can. My arms are about you. My tenderness surrounds you. My love is in your heart. You go not alone. I walk with you.

    I share every aspect of your life with you. Cling to Me, feel My presence. It is warm and secure within your chest. There is no room for fear, for I cast out fear and bring you comfort and joy.

end of May 13, 1993


                R. Oh what a gift it is —

                We are stewards of the earth —

                This is God's world —

                God created it —
                God created us —
                We belong to Him —


Matthew 21: 33-43, 45-46

‘Listen to another parable. There was a man, a landowner, who planted a vineyard; he fenced it round, dug a winepress in it and built a tower; then he leased it to tenants and went abroad. When vintage time drew near he sent his servants to the tenants to collect his produce. But the tenants seized his servants, thrashed one, killed another and stoned a third. Next he sent some more servants, this time a larger number, and they dealt with them in the same way. Finally he sent his son to them thinking, “They will respect my son.” But when the tenants saw the son, they said to each other, “This is the heir. Come on, let us kill him and take over his inheritance.” So they seized him and threw him out of the vineyard and killed him. Now when the owner of the vineyard comes, what will he do to those tenants?’ They answered, ‘He will bring those wretches to a wretched end and lease the vineyard to other tenants who will deliver the produce to him at the proper time.’ Jesus said to them, ‘Have you never read in the scriptures:

The stone which the builders rejected
has become the cornerstone;
this is the Lord’s doing
and we marvel at it? 

‘I tell you, then, that the kingdom of God will be taken from you and given to a people who will produce its fruit.’ 
   When they heard his parables, the chief priests and the scribes realised he was speaking about them, but though they would have liked to arrest him they were afraid of the crowds, who looked on him as a prophet.


                R. We are brothers, put on this earth —
                Jesus died for us —
                Jesus rose for us —
                Jesus is our Savior —
                We were created by God —
                To know, love and serve God and
                    to love each other and
                    to love ourselves as God wills —

                God is love —
                Love is relationship —
                The devil said "I will not serve"

                God commands us to serve —
                Jesus came to teach us how to live
                    in community — how to serve,
                    how to love —

                The Good Shepherd laid down His
                    life for us 



John 10: 11-15

I am the good shepherd:
the good shepherd lays down his life
   for his sheep.
The hired man,
   since he is not the shepherd
and the sheep do not belong to him,
abandons the sheep
as soon as he sees a wolf coming,
   and runs away,
and then the wolf attacks
   and scatters the sheep;
he runs away
   because he is only a hired man
and has no concern for the sheep.
I am the good shepherd;
I know my own
and my own know me,
just as the Father knows me
and I know the Father;
and I lay down my life for my sheep.


                R. The devil tries to get us to think
                    love will run out —
                    we won't get enough —
                    be selfish —
                    be isolated —
                    caved in —

                Jesus teaches us in the loaves
                    and fish — that He can keep
                    giving and giving and giving to us —

                God gave us this beautiful earth —

                The United States surrounded by the waters
                    so beautiful —

                The air to breathe

                Beauty, Beauty, Beauty!!

                God shows us that babies come
                    from union — two human
                    creatures —


                Jesus came — God-made-Man


Luke 1: 26-35

In the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent by God to a town in Galilee called Nazareth, to a virgin betrothed to a man named Joseph, of the House of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary. He went in and said to her, ‘Rejoice, you who enjoy God’s favour! The Lord is with you.’ She was deeply disturbed by these words and asked herself what this greeting could mean, but the angel said to her, ‘Mary, do not be afraid; you have won God’s favour. Look! You are to conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you must name him Jesus. He will be great and will be called Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his ancestor David; he will rule over the House of Jacob for ever and his reign will have no end.’ Mary said to the angel, ‘But how can this come about, since I have no knowledge of man?’ The angel answered, ‘The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will cover you with its shadow. And so the child will be holy and will be called Son of God.


                R. Flowers reproduce by connection —

                Growth comes from unity —

                Cutting back the plant, Jesus
                    says in this Blue Book


Picture of the Sacred Heart of JesusTo Grow, You Cannot Remain the Same

February 12, 1994 - After Mass

Jesus: I give you this intense love. Look at Me hanging, arms outstretched. Do you see I am giving you My all out of deepest love of you! How do I wake you? I profess it so profusely, but you do not open your hearts. You crave My love, you want it so badly, but you do not realize I am giving it to you now.

You are My beautiful daughter. I speak to you. You will be rejected but you will plant seeds that will germinate in the hearts of many. You must do My work. Do not be attached to the glory or the persecution. I am God and My might is endless. I am He Whom you love, He Whom you seek. Come to Me and I will fill you!

Preach the Real Presence. I am truly here, God alone! Preach My love on fire for every soul. People are hungry, they will listen. Lead My people to My love.

R. Jesus is speaking to you in the whispers in your heart. Do you block His words and only do what you want?

Jesus: To die to yourself you must listen to every word I plant in your heart, even the ones you do not want to hear because you might have to change something. To grow, you cannot remain the same. There is no growth if the plant stays the same.

I come to feed you, to fertilize you. I give you just the right fertilizer in your heart. Do you want to grow or do you want to remain unchanged? You will not grow if you do not use My fertilizer. It is the quiet whispers in your heart.

"Oh no, not that, Lord!" Oh, say "yes" to all I send you. It is with the greatest of love. It comes from Him Who laid down His life for you, Who gave you the last beat of His heart. I am Who am. I am God and I come before you, bruised, bloodied and beaten and I say, "Do you love Me so much as to listen to My promptings in your heart, to love your sick brothers, to do as The Father wills you to do?" I gave you the last beat of My heart. Why do you hold back? I am He Who loves you. I send you good things. Even crosses are good things. You grow from your trials and crosses.

Growth demands a change. Love finds a way into the hearts of others when you love with a heart of God.

Oh, child, I love you.

                R. Jesus is the vine
                We are the branches —
                A withered branch doesn't survive —
                God is the source of life —

                The devil wants men cut off from
                    the source, cut off from
                    each other, disharmonious —
                    disconnected — selfish —

                Plants grow with sun and water --
                We need sun — Vitamin D —
                We are a work in progress —
                We were created uniquely by God the Father —
                We were chosen for a purpose —
                We are not at random —

                God wanted us —
                God loves us —
                God made us — 


                R. We depend on God —

                Man was meant to work together —
                We came into this world because
                    of union —

                Animals reproduce —
                There is a natural law —

                Fr. Carter would say — think of all
                    the hands that worked together
                    to help us put out a single meal —

                We don't want to get into stereotype
                    ways we see that are opposed
                    to reality —

                God has the Plan —
                We are under God —
                Reality is seen through the eyes
                    of God the Father

                Not distorted vision of bad habits
                    of men passed down —

                Angry fighting parents teach children
                    to live in anger —

                Parents not getting along, having
                    addictions, forcing children
                    to have survival tactics
                    teach dysfunctional patterned
                    passed-on - behavior —

                Where are we that we don't see even
                    the gift in the life of a tree —
                    the trees that surround us —
                    the beauty of the seasons —
                    the growth of one tree —

                The beauty of the magnolia tree —
                The variety of trees —
                They teach us about the Might
                    of God —

                The uniqueness of each tree and
                    its splendor, position and
                    beauty —

                Life is not life, it says in the Blue Books,
                    if it is not rooted in Him —

                We can choose life —
                We must seek to know God —
                We must seek to build His Kingdom —
                Not listen to satan's stilled ways —

                Satan wants the death of the soul —
                Satan is darkness —
                Satan is prowling the earth —
                    looking for someone to devour —

                Satan is lurking around like
                    a hungry snake —
                Talking in our heads —
                Telling us to pull back — be
                    isolated, selfish — want
                    our way —

                Fr. Carter taught me — we were given talents
                    to use and to build God's Kingdom and
                    to teach others lovingly, willingly
                    what we know, so they can use
                    what we taught them to help
                    build the Kingdom of God among
                    men — so they will know God —
                    live united to God —

                Satan says — hold back, don't help,
                    be jealous, possessive —
                    seek affections from men slavishly,
                    Like 2 years olds —
                    Don't share!!

                Giving our heart to Jesus is God's will —
                    holding onto selfish habits is
                    like the 2 year old that never
                    learned to share and do what
                    God wants with them —

                Here is a message Jesus gave me
                    19 years ago — when I asked —

October 5, 1992 - 3:30am

R. Dear Jesus, Give me Your hand to write this book for you. I am your servant. I want to be Your hand to this world. If you, Lord Jesus, would write a book, what would you say?

Jesus:   My dear children,

   Today I come to deliver a message to each of you. I want to tell you of each person's dignity, of their beauty and their self-worth. Each child is, oh, so uniquely precious to My Most Sacred Heart. Each child is full of the talents I have given to them. Each person is divinely created by God and given all these gifts to be happy and love one another.

   The problem comes when you feel you will be left out. That you will be left by another who has trodden on you and will do it again. I see you all as My most precious children. I watch your every move and know all pain and anguish in your heart. My Heart aches, you have insecure feelings about yourself. I came to this earth I died for you. I felt cold, hungry, lonely on this earth. You need not worry that no one knows the pain and anguish in your heart. God created you with such special gifts and talents. It is important for you to raise above your wound and forgive those who hurt you.

   You need only turn your will and your life over to Me and I will guide you in all your ways. I have all the Power. Many are not of My ways. The key to life is to recognize your faults, but still know you are this precious gift of My Father a gift to this world. This world is in need of your strength. Running yourself down, blaming others hurting them can cause you misery and pain. At this very moment, you are the precious creation of God!! You must operate with Me in your heart.

   You need not run yourself down. I am with you every day guiding your ways, lest your foot stumble and you lose your way. You will not wander far from your path if every day you keep bringing your focus back to Me. If you dare let Me be at the helm, if you dare to really let Me run your life, I will do with you such wonders that you yourself would be amazed. But you will know with such ease when you did these things that you did not do them alone. You will know My power, moving the mountain, My power chipping at the stone, My power working on your hardest problem and you will be set free.

   Oh yes, you will be set free and know a serenity that only comes from letting go and letting Me run your life. To you, My child, I have given all that is good. I made you My holy soldier, My warrior in a world of pain and hatred. You are the light that shines in the darkness, you are the coat to a cold child, you are the smile that warms a troubled and lonely heart. You are the comfort for everyone you meet, because My most precious Heart powers you, smiles through you, understands and loves through you.

   Love your fellows for Me. There are so many troubled hearts that need to know My love. I can love through you if you let Me, I can be their friend through you if you let Me. I am He who comforts you and you are he who comforts them. My power is endless, it never runs out, there is not a power failure EVER. In your darkest hour, My light shines in the darkness and I say to you, "Oh blessed of My Father, look at yourself with awe, you are My creation, you are indeed so precious to Me, you are My light to this world, you are My hands and My feet and most of all My Heart."

   Oh, you are My loving Heart, to those who are bowed down, to those who are lost in the darkness, you carry My smile and wear My armor in a world that is trying to tear one another down with hate and ugliness. There is gentleness, there is love, there is hope in you, if you open yourself up to Me. Be My knight to the world, wear My armor. I am your God and I will protect you from the darkness. Plug into My power, be not afraid, I go before you always and you can rest in My arms when you feel weary. You can put your head in My lap and weep, you will know, I am truly with you and you are My light to this world. I created you so special - to cast out fear in the darkness, to clothe the naked, to give hope to the oppressed, to be as I live in you and love through you and you are My smile and I touch My hurting ones through your love.

   You are he who loves this world. You must stay plugged into My power-source. This world is hungry for My love. It needs My love, I give to them through you. I am your God and I made you as a gift to the world. You are filled.

    Focus on Me and your life will be abundant and whole, joy in suffering, freedom — but  you can take the knocks because you will know you do not go it alone, but with Me. I love you My precious child.

end of October 5, 1992


                R. We are players on a stage —
                God is judging our performance —
                We are to be more and more loving —
                Being more in His image and likeness —

                The old isolated habits, selfishness,
                    vices — lead us away from God —
                    They are called deadly
                    sins because they rob us
                    of life —

                Life is in Him —

                Do you see mud or stars?
                When God asks you —
                Can you do it?

                Do you say — "No - I have an
                    agenda", even though you
                    don't just a closed heart

                We were given this world!
                It is God's world —

                We were commissioned in baptism
                    to spread the Good News —
                    How has God called you in
                    the life He gave you to do this?

                Do you think things will run out and
                    you are here for yourself?

                Jesus: I come and I call —
                    I knock at the door

                R. You say "go away, Jesus" and
                    you are fearing — listening
                    to satan — I bring light
                    and help — you close yourself to
                    Me to go to your locked closet
                    marked "FEAR" —

                How have you lived your life
                    in the locked closet of "Fear"
                    spreading the Good News

                Working together is what I called you
                    to do —

                You did it your way — working
                    alone —

                No one learned — you got the
                    job done — your way —

                I call you to teach you what you
                    need to go to heaven — working,
                    bending, loving, trusting in God
                    you don't want any lessons —
                    You work your way —
                    You work your agenda —
                    You have to be in charge
                    or you're not a team player —

                Heaven is learning to be a team
                    player —

                Heaven is community —

                Heaven is a reward
                    promised to those
                    who loved and served
                    the Lord —

                The Shepherds of Christ Movement exists
                    to bring unity to this world —
                    to the Church —
                    working in one mind and one heart —

                Your clock never let you learn
                    about the family —
                    about community —
                    about obedience
                    about harmony —

                The big lesson is unity —
                    working and loving God —
                    doing things for Him —
                    to please Him —
                    Trusting God —
                    Identifying your life
                    with His life —
                    You learned your ways
                        very well and you never
                        moved to learn Mine —

                Heaven is for lovers —

                There are no clocks —
                There are no closets marked fear —

                God is in control —
                    not competing men for
                    dominance for dominance
                    sake —

                There is love —
                There is knowing insight into
                    the hidden mystery —

                There is oneness—
                Absorbed in unity —
                Knowing God —

                This goes beyond sharing
                    like the kids with
                    the toy —

                You can learn your bad
                    habits better —
                    learn to do it your
                        way harder —
                    never learn obedience and
                        structure and
                    when your legs are old and
                        your teeth gone
                        say —

                    "I ran my own race —
                    My legs are worn and
                        I ran to make
                        myself the leader
                    I had to be right.
                    I had to be in charge —
                    I didn't learn the
                        2 years old lesson to
                        share —

                This is God's world —
                I am His creature and
                I lived and wore my legs out,
                    my eyes out, my
                    arms out and I did it
                    my way, and when you get
                    to the gates of heaven say
                    let me in God, I'm here —
                    move over"

                What will I say to such
                    a pompous man —

                You never lived community —
                You never shared - really
                    the way you needed to —

                When I called community —
                    you did it your way —

                Did you ever stop and
                    smell the roses?

                Did you ever stop and quit
                    the deception of satan —

                When did you let yourself
                    be comfortable with
                    others —

                Heaven is like this —
                Being comfortable with
                    others —

                Not controlling —
                Not heartlessness —

                Wasting time with God and
                    those God called you
                    to live in peace
                    and unity —

                Mary: Look at your country

                My children are dying in
                    this land of plenty —
                    in this land of beauty —

                You and your pompous ways
                    Look at My Son on the cross —
                    Where are you going?

                I am the Immaculate Heart —

                Unless men seek purity —
                    seek to serve God as
                    He desires —

                    God intends —

                You see the sun as
                    your sun —

                You see the air as yours —

                You are locked in a
                    closet hiding your

                The God given talents
                    God gave you —

                You know your heart when

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. We are a warm circle of strength using the wind of our breath to carry our priests' words, Christ's words, to new rich soil. $15
Guiding Light - Focusing on the Word - Cycle B — At times we may feel that our path to Christ is a bit "out of focus". Like the disciples in the Book of Mark, this ordinary life clouds our vision of Christ's Divinity. We may doubt the practicality or possibility of applying His teachings and example to our modern life. Cycle B's homilies are a "guiding light" to help us realize Jesus' Messianic greatness and His promise of better things to come. $15
Guiding Light - Feed My Soul - Cycle C — In a world rapidly advancing and encouraging personal gain, we are faced with modern problems. There is a challenge to find time in our busy schedules for Sunday Mass or a family meal. We are able to research, shop, bank and even work without hearing one human voice. 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

Guiding Light - The Word Alive in Our Hearts. - Cycle A (partial) — Homilies by the Reverend Joe Robinson given at St. Boniface Church in Cincinnati, Ohio. It is a tremendous honor Fr. Joe has allowed us to share these great gifts with you – for greater holiness and knowing more and more about God. $10

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
