                Forgiveness is God's Might

                Let us pray for each
                    other — and pray to forgive —
                    pray to be one

                Love and not violence
 


                We are all children
                    of God — God created us —

                    We are to see what God
                wants us to be —

                    He created us all uniquely —

A Scriptural Reflection

In this work of ongoing redemption, each of us has a special mission, a special role to fulfill. No one can fulfill another's mission. Each of us, being a unique person, has a unique mission to carry out. John Cardinal Newman reminds us: "...everyone who breathes, high and low, educated and ignorant, young and old, man and woman, has a mission, has a work. We are not sent into this world for nothing; we are not born at random...God sees everyone of us; He creates every soul, He lodges it in the body, one by one, for a purpose. He needs, He deigns to need, every one of us. He has an end for each of us; we are all equal in His sight, and we are placed in our different ranks and stations, not to get what we can out of them for ourselves, but to labor in them for Him. As Christ has His work, we too have ours; as He rejoiced to do His work, we must rejoice in ours also."15

 

                You are never alone —

                God is with us —

                Jesus you are my best friend —

                We are to help bring this
                    era of peace and
                    forgiveness —

                We must be peaceful ourselves and
                    we are to work in
                    holiness to be ONE —

                In this is our strength —

                We must have order,
                    authority, structure
                    obedience

                In this there is peace —
                    where men discipline
                    themselves and live by
                    the Gospel and obey
                    the commandments —

                We must pray for peace —

                Our role in the Shepherds of Christ is
                    to pray for peace

                Youth, the young are
                    confused because
                    of the devil trying to
                    give the message of right
                    is wrong and wrong is right —

                The youth have been taught
                    to focus on money in
                    America, things — this is
                    confusing

                Secularism

                Focusing on man as powerful
                    and leaving out God

                We can see what one person
                    has done to help the whole
                    earth in Pope John Paul II —

                He went — with all he had
                until the end —
                He relied on Christ —
                He was sick (Parkinson's disease)
                He was very old —

                What an example of service
                    and love and dedication and
                    holiness, dependency on God

                Pope John Paul II gave to us himself.

                    How are religious today — do
                they follow the footsteps of
                Jesus, the footsteps of Pope
                John Paul II —
                St. Paul
                St. Peter
                Padre Pio
                Mother Teresa
                Thomas More


                We cannot take anything with us
                    only our love —

                In the end we take the love
                    of our heart —

                Mary says —

                    My children your love goes
                with you forever —

                    Love is lasting

  

2 Peter 1: 3-7

By his divine power, he has lavished on us all the things we need for life and for true devotion, through the knowledge of him who has called us by his own glory and goodness. Through these, the greatest and priceless promises have been lavished on us, that through them you should share the divine nature and escape the corruption rife in the world through disordered passion. With this in view, do your utmost to support your faith with goodness, goodness with understanding, understanding with self–control, self–control with perseverance, perseverance with devotion, devotion with kindness to the brothers, and kindness to the brothers with love.

 

Jeremiah 1: 4-8

The word of Yahweh came to me, saying:

 ‘Before I formed you in the womb
     I knew you;
  before you came to birth 
     I consecrated you; 
  I appointed you as prophet to the nations.’

  I then said, ‘Ah, ah, ah, Lord Yahweh;
you see, I do not know how to speak: I am only a child!’

  But Yahweh replied,
‘Do not say, "I am only a child,"
 for you must go to all to whom I send you
 and say whatever I command you.
 Do not be afraid of confronting them,
 for I am with you to rescue you,
 Yahweh declares.’

 

From Response to God's Love p. 14-15

Because of the uniqueness of each Christian's existence, he or she presents Christ with a unique opportunity. Each Christian has the vocation to offer Christ his or her humanity so that Jesus can re-incarnate himself in a new way. Jesus wants to continue his redemptive work through the not-to-be-repeated newness that is each Christian's uniqueness. To the extent that an individual Christian offers his or her humanity to Jesus, he or she has a unique opportunity to continue the redemption—an opportunity that no one else can offer him or her. Likewise, to the extent that an individual Christian fails to offer his or her humanity to Christ, Jesus loses the opportunity that is this Christian's uniqueness.

       Each of us, consequently, no matter what his or her occupation or status in life might be, has both the great privilege and the great responsibility to properly utilize his or her life according to God's Christic design. No one else can fulfill your unique mission, and, in turn, you cannot accomplish the unique mission of another. At times we can become somewhat fearful or anxious about the task that God has entrusted to us as we more deeply realize what it demands. We can feel the same reluctance that Jeremiah the prophet voiced when Yahweh called him:

     

1 John 4: 16-21

We have recognised for ourselves,
and put our faith in,
    the love God has for us.
God is love,
and whoever remains in love
    remains in God
and God in him.
Love comes to its perfection in us 
when we can face 
    the Day of Judgement fearlessly, 
because even in this world 
we have become as he is. 
In love there is no room for fear, 
but perfect love drives out fear, 
because fear implies punishment 
and no one who is afraid 
    has come to perfection in love. 
Let us love, then,
because he first loved us.
Anyone who says ‘I love God’
and hates his brother,
is a liar,
since whoever does not love the brother
    whom he can see
cannot love God whom he has not seen. 
Indeed this is the commandment
    we have received from him,
that whoever loves God,
    must also love his brother.

God Is Love

    Our greatness, then, lies in our relating in love to both God and others-yes, even to that vast majority whom we will never see or know directly, but whom our love can nevertheless reach out and touch because of our union with Christ. With Christ, there are no space barriers, and, therefore, uniting our love to His can unite us to people the world over.

    We grow as Christians through a life that is centered in love within the milieu of the human condition. This is the only framework we have for achieving our greatness, our true personhood, and, consequently, we must not shirk the human condition. Jesus did not shirk it, but rather accepted it and manifested His greatness within it, despite the pain and agony that the human condition at times heaped upon Him. It is true that Jesus rejoiced during the course of His life because of the goodness, sincerity, and response of some of those with whom He dealt. The love that Mary and Joseph showered on Jesus, for instance, gave Him great joy. During His life, however, Jesus often suffered because of the evil side of others-their pettiness, cowardice, insensitivity, selfishness, egotism. In other words, Jesus suffered at the hands of others because they were not what they should have been. However, these experiences did not thwart the greatness of Jesus. He was always what He should have been. Jesus was always the tremendous lover, and He loved even at those times when it was very painful to do so.

    Our own greatness in Christ, our growth as Christians, can develop smoothly and joyfully because we, in a special way, experience the goodness and love within the hearts of others, and this makes it easy for us to love as we should. Sometimes, however, the less wholesome side of others crowds in upon us, and we find it difficult to go on loving as we should. In the same way that Christ suffered because of others, we, too, as we try to love, suffer because of others. We suffer because others do not always understand us-this can be true even of those who dearly love us. We suffer because some do not appreciate what we do for them, and sometimes what we do exacts great personal cost. We suffer because others either reject us or make us the objects of their meanness and selfishness. We suffer because there are some who ignore us. At times we suffer so much that we are tempted to withdraw from the pain of giving ourselves in love into an egotistic enclosure of self-seeking, where, we think, we will no longer suffer at the hands of others, or at least will not suffer so much. To surrender to such a temptation, however, is to forget what Christian greatness really is, namely, a life of love for God and others, a love that does not shrink from the pain that results from loving in an imperfect world, a love that is meant to become greater and more selfless regardless of the way other might treat us. Love, then, accepts both the joy and the pain of life and carries on under both conditions. Yes, we are made for love.

  

Reflections on Love

  •      The more love matures, the more it concentrates on the present. Love welcomes each day with a fresh joy and a renewed gratitude to God for the opportunity to once again be and become for Him and others. Love realizes that it does not fully possess the past or the future-it can only fully grasp the present, and it loathes to waste any of the preciousness which "the now" offers.

  •      Love is secure. A person who properly loves is in touch with one's true self and realizes that he or she is tremendously loved by God. Such a person feels secure in the exercise of love towards others. He or she feels secure enough to extend love towards others in various ways, even when little or no love is returned.

  •     Closely allied to love's feeling secure is love's intuition in realizing the evils of possessiveness. Love does not try to possess the person one loves, but leaves the other free. In fact, authentic love for the other makes the other more free and helps the other to grow in all ways, including growth along the paths of real freedom. The one who loves authentically leaves the other free to grow in all sorts of ways, for example, to relate to other people and to undertake new things, activities which might well make the loved one less accessible.

end of excerpts

  

                Christ is the King of the Universe —
                Mary is the Queen of the Universe

 

Colossians 1: 15-20

He is the image of the unseen God, the first–born of all creation, for in him were created all things in heaven and on earth: everything visible and everything invisible, thrones, ruling forces, sovereignties, powers—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 first–born 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.

 

                We must love the world
                We must pray for the world — the souls
                    Jesus died for —

                Every person has human dignity —

                God is love

 

1 John 4: 8

Whoever fails to love does not know God,
because God is love.

    

                Excerpts from the Priestly Newsletter Book II - January/February 1997 p. 34, 35

Christ and the World

"At the same time He taught us that the new command of love is the basic law of human perfection and hence of the world's transformation.

    "To those, therefore, who believe in divine love, He gives assurance that the way of love lies open to all men and that the effort to establish a universal brotherhood is not a hopeless one. He cautions them at the same time that this love is not something to be reserved for important matters, but must be pursued chiefly in the ordinary circumstances of life.

    "Undergoing death itself for all of us sinners, He taught us by example that we too must shoulder that cross which the world and the flesh inflect upon those who search after peace and justice. Appointed Lord by His resurrection and given plenary power in heaven and on earth, Christ is now at work in the hearts of men through the energy of His Spirit. He arouses not only a desire for the age to come, but, by that very fact, He animates, purifies, and strengthens those noble longings by which the human family strives to make its life more human and to render the whole earth submissive to the goal....

    There is only one world order, and it has been established in Christ. Every person is offered salvation, but this is Christic grace, Christic salvation. The entire temporal order comes under this Christic influence. If there is to be the authentic progress of this temporal order, it must be a progress in Christ. The Christic influence, then, reaches out and touches every human person, every authentic, human value. Regardless of how many persons realize what is happening in Christ to themselves and to the entire world order, it is definitely happening. Consequently, our Christ-oriented efforts for the human family are really effective, even though they are so hidden and mysterious at times.

Love for One Another

    I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd is one who 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 and runs away as soon as he sees a wolf coming, and then the wolf attacks and scatters the sheep; this is 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. (Jn 10:11-151)

    Yes, Christ, in the great love of His Heart for us, has laid down His life for us. In the giving up of His life for us He gave us new life in Him. And at the heart of our life in Him-our life of grace-is the infused virtue of love. In Jesus we have a new power to love God and others.

    In the First Letter of John, we read:

    "My dear people, let us love one another since love comes from God and everyone who loves is begotten by God and knows God." (1 Jn 4:7)

    "Anyone who says, 'I love God,' and hates his brother, is a liar, since a man who does not love the brother that he can see cannot love God, whom he has never seen." (1 Jn 4:20)

    Yes, in Christ we are called to love one another in a special way. What are some of the characteristics of our love for neighbor? There follow some reflections on our love-relationship with others.

  • Our love of neighbor should exclude no one. It should embrace every single person the world over. As Christ's love for the human family is universal, so must ours be. In our universal love for others we must be willing to act to help promote their good. One way we can do this is in our prayer for their various material and spiritual needs. This constitutes no slight contribution of love, for prayer is one of the great means of channeling God's gifts to the world.
     

  • The true Christian is imbued with consciousness of others. That is to say, the true Christian is keenly aware that, to a great degree, God intends each of us to press on toward maturity in the spiritual life through a proper relating to others. Indeed, the Christian imperative reminds us that we are to walk life's path, not in isolation, but hand in hand with our kindred human beings.
     

               

3 days of messages from Mary

 

                Mary — Our Lady of Clearwater — Our Lady of Fatima in the Americas

                in a tunnel — God is with you, America,

                        "IN GOD WE TRUST"

                You have grown in secularism, atheism,
                    agnostism, socialism, communism —
                    America — I cry to you

                    LISTEN BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE —

                Love is the answer —

                Giving your heart in love praying for the souls —

                    let your lives be likened to God —
                    that you will be an example to the world —

                America, America, land of plenty — I appear
                    a messenger from God and you will
                    not listen for you do not want to
                    change your ways

                OBEY THE COMMANDMENTS OF GOD AMERICA

 

The Ten Commandments

  1. I am the Lord your God; you shall not have strange gods before Me.

  2. You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain.

  3. Remember to keep holy the Sabbath day.

  4. Honor your father and your mother.

  5. You shall not kill.

  6. You shall not commit adultery.

  7. You shall not steal.

  8. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.

  9. You shall not covet your neighbor's wife.

  10. You shall not covet your neighbor's goods.

   

                    Your trains and planes brought progress, so
                you, many of you, thought you were the
                power — the power is in Jesus —

                    America, listen,
                    Hear me, America —

                    Obey God —
                    Doing God's will to live in peace, love and joy —

                    People have become addicted to excitement —
                many have shut their hearts off from
                God — live in harmony with God's
                Plan — not addicted to misery and excitement —
                Your lack of peace comes from your
                disconnection with God —

                    God is good — The Plan of the Father
                is you serve Him while you are on earth — spreading
                the Kingdom of God on earth — obeying
                His commandments that you would
                receive an everlasting reward and be
                with God forever in heaven because
                of your obedience to God here on
                earth —

                    The devil tempts you to rebel against
                the Father's Plan — the devil is a fallen
                angel — who said "I will not serve God"
                God created man to know, love and serve
                God and by this means to gain his eternal
                reward in heaven —

                    God created the world out of His love
                for men — God is light — God gave
                man a free will to obey His commandments.
                Some angels rebelled against God —
                The devil, the fallen angel, wants
                you to disobey God, to hate, to
                seek confusion, disharmony and
                thereby do work for him — leading
                others away from God and the devil
                wants you living in darkness, be disharmonious,
                selfish, seeking dominance for
                dominance sake, jealous,
                possessive, angry, envious,
                lustful

                    I appear in Clearwater to deliver
                the message you are to be pure — to
                tell you to be baptized — to go to Church —
                to obey the commandments of God —
                to spread the consecration to Our 2 Hearts —
                to put pictures in your homes

                    God gave you bountifully —
                that you would obey Him

                    God gave you plants, animals,
                water, sun —

                    God gave you Himself
                    God gave you the Church
                    God gave you baptism —
                        a sharing in His life

                    Jesus came He died and He rose
                        for love of you —

                    Jesus took on a little baby body
                        for love of you

                    Order and good come in the world
                when men obey the will of God —
                    Disorder and evil when men
                reject the will of God —

                    This is seen in the Bible — my
                children —

                    Read the Bible
                    Go to Church

                    God gives life to men and when
                one dies there is no longer life in
                the body —

                    Where are you going for these few
                short years here on earth, America —

                    God has put you in a garden —
                You are to bear fruit for God's
                Kingdom and obey Him, America —

                America richly blessed

Excerpt from The Spirituality of Fatima

by Fr. Edward Carter, S.J.

Before receiving the six apparitions of Our Lady, May through October of 1917, the three Fatima visionaries were visited by an angel on three different occasions during the preceding year. He appeared to them in the spring, summer, and fall. Lucia (now Sr. Lucia) describes the springtime apparition of the angel:

"My God, I believe, I adore, I hope and I love You! I ask pardon of You for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not hope and do not love You."

Then, rising he said: "Pray thus. The Hearts of Jesus and Mary are attentive to the voice of your supplications."

His words engraved themselves so deeply on our minds that we could never forget them (3)

During the summer of 1916, the angel again appeared to the three visionaries. He said to them:

Pray! Pray a great deal. The Hearts of Jesus and Mary have merciful designs on you. Offer prayers and sacrifices continually to the Most High. Make everything you do a sacrifice, and offer it as an act of reparation for the sins by which God is offended, and as a petition for the conversion of sinners. Bring peace to our country in this way.... I am the Guardian Angel of Portugal Accept and bear with submission all the sufferings the Lord will send you. (4)

In the fall of the same year, the angel visited the visionaries a final time:

The angel came...bearing a golden chalice in one hand and a Host above it in the other. The amazed children noticed that drops of blood were falling from the Host into the chalice. Presently, the angel left both suspended in mid-air and prostrated himself on the ground, saying this beautiful prayer: "Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, I adore You profoundly. I offer You the most precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ, present in all tabernacles of the world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges, and indifference by which He is offended. By the infinite merits of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and [the intercession of] the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg of Thee the conversion of poor sinners." (5)

Sr. Lucia relates how the angel gave them Communion:

Then, rising, he took the chalice and the Host in his hand. He gave the Sacred Host to me and shared the Blood from the chalice between Jacinta and Francisco, saying as he did so:

"Take and drink the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, horribly outraged by ungrateful men! Make reparation for their crimes and console your God." (6)

Reflecting upon these messages of the angel, we see how much they contain for our spiritual instruction.

Excerpts from The Spirituality of Fatima

by Fr. Edward Carter, S.J.

   

May 13, 1917 

    "Do not be afraid, I will do you no harm..... I am from Heaven.

    "I have come to ask you to come here for six months in succession, on the 13th day, at the same hour. Later on, I will tell you who I am and what I want

    "Are you willing to offer yourselves to God and bear all the sufferings He wills to send you, as an act of reparation for the sins by which He is offended, and in supplication for the conversion of sinners?

    "Pray the Rosary every day in order to obtain peace for the world, and the end of the war." (8)

  

June 13, 1917

    "God wishes you to remain in the world for some time because He wants to use you to establish in the world the devotion to my Immaculate Heart. I promise salvation to those who embrace it, and their souls will be loved by God as flowers placed by myself to adorn His throne." (10)

  

July 13, 1917

    "During her appearance in July, Our Lady, in answer to Lucia's plea, promised that in October she would work a great miracle so that all might believe and know who she was. Again, the Mother of God told the children to sacrifice themselves for sinners and to say many times, especially when making a sacrifice, this prayer: "O my Jesus, I offer this for love of Thee, for the conversion of poor sinners, and in reparation for all the sins committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary." (11)

    "During this same July apparition, Mary showed the three children a vision of Hell. She told them:

    "You have seen Hell, where the souls of poor sinners go. To save them, God wishes to establish, in the world, devotion to my Immaculate Heart. If people do what I tell you, many souls will be saved and there will be peace.

    "The war (World War I, then raging) is going to end. But if people do not stop offending God, another and worse one will begin in the reign of Pius XI. When you shall see a night illuminated by an unknown light [January 2, 1938], know that this is the great sign that God gives you that He is going to punish the world for its many crimes by means of war, hunger, and persecution of the Church and the Holy Father. (12)

    "To prevent this, I shall come to ask for the consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart and the Communion of Reparation on the five first Saturdays. If my requests are granted, Russia will be converted and there will be peace. If not, she will scatter her errors throughout the world, provoking wars and persecutions of the Church. The good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer, and various nations will be destroyed....

    "But in the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph, the Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, Russia will be converted, and a certain period of peace will be granted to the world." (13)

  

August 19, 1917

    She told them she was greatly displeased by the action of the mayor. As a result, the miracle promised for October would not be as impressive as originally planned. (15)

 

September 13, 1917

    More than 30,000 people were present in September, and saw a shower of mysterious white petals fall to within 10 feet of the ground before dissolving into the air. Many also saw the globe of light bearing the Lady come to rest atop the tree, and the branches bend as though someone were standing on them. Later, they saw the cloud depart into the east, from whence it had come.(16)

  

October 13, 1917

    I am the Lady of the Rosary. I have come to warn the faithful to amend their lives and to ask pardon for their sins. They must not offend Our Lord any more, for He is already too grievously offended by the sins of men. People must say the Rosary. Let them continue saying it every day.(17)

    While the people in attendance were beholding the great Miracle of the Sun, the three young visionaries, and they alone, were privileged to see striking visions in the heavens:

    As Our Lady had promised, St. Joseph had come with the Holy Family and had blessed the world. Then, Our Lady appeared as the Mother of Sorrows, accompanied by her Divine Son, Who also blessed the world. Finally, Lucy had seen the Blessed Virgin, dressed in the brown robes of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, crowned as Queen of Heaven and Earth, holding a brown Scapular in her hand, with her infant Son upon her knee. However, in none of these visions had any of the figures spoken to the children. (18)

    Besides the messages associated with the major Fatima apparitions, there were other revelations given by Our Lady. Before Jacinta died, she told of other messages given her (during her illness) by Mary:

    More souls go to Hell because of sins of the flesh than for any other reason.

    Certain fashions will be introduced that will offend Our Lord very much.

    Many marriages are not good; they do not please Our Lord and are not of God.

    Priests must be pure, very pure. They should not busy themselves with anything except what concerns the Church and souls. The disobedience of priests, to their superiors and to the Holy Father, is very displeasing to Our Lord.

    I can no longer restrain the hand of my Divine Son from striking the world with just punishments for its many crimes.

    If the government of a country leaves the Church in peace and gives liberty to our Holy Religion, it will be blessed by God.

    Tell everybody that God gives graces through the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Tell them to ask grace from her, and that the Heart of Jesus wishes to be venerated together with the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Ask them to plead for peace from the Immaculate Heart of Mary, for the Lord has confided the peace of the world to her. (19)

                Jesus: I have given you great gifts to
                    know how to pray —

                    You must give yourself to Me in
                your vocation — I am here, but you hold
                yourself at a distance — So I send you
                My letters of love that you will love Me
                so much —

                    To do all you do for Me because
                you love Me so much —

                R. Oh Jesus — I see that you want souls
                to love You, which is why You gave
                us these letters of love — to have this
                personal relationship so deeply with
                souls and You called the servants
                and handmaids and apostles and associates
                in the Shepherds of Christ to help me to spread
                these most tender letters of Your love —
                Jesus You are truly present in the
                Blessed Sacrament — no less present
                than the day You walked the earth —
                Jesus I know Your love is true and
                I want all to know Your love —

                    You want this world that is hungry —
                longing for Your love to be fed by
                such a realization of how truly
                present You are in the Blessed
                Sacrament and for us to long and want
                to serve You, because You call
                us to love and to tell others by
                our example.

                    Look at Jesus as He carries His
                cross for love of us and look at
                His image hanging on the cross —
                look at Jesus' love for us and
                believe in the gifts we receive
                in this great Church —
                God has given to us.

                    It is an honor to serve Him —
                to know He has revealed Himself
                so intimately to us — If we treat our
                vocation like drudgery — we miss the
                gift — to fly on eagle's wings —
                We are fighting His gift of wanting
                such an intimate, loving union
                with Him —

                    To live a life of joy serving
                Him and praying for our great
                Church and the world, for the souls
                Jesus died for —

                    God has called us to help renew
                the Church and the world — how can
                we renew anything with an
                unwilling spirit to live our
                vocation with great love for
                God who called us to serve —

                    Jesus is a God of mercy and love —
                Jesus is not like the worldly men who
                are focused on themselves —

                    Study again the crucifix —
                look at Jesus as He carried His
                cross — see the sufferings of
                Mary and Jesus as They look into
                each others' eyes on the way to
                Calvary —

                    Now you heard the cry of Mary
                for 3 days, why God sent Mary
                at Clearwater and at Fatima to
                cry to the world of the love of the
                Sacred Heart of Jesus and the love
                of her Immaculate Heart —

                    I have seen the Divine Mercy
                Jesus — November 2 and Mary — crying
                out to America to help me do this
                work for the sake of souls —

                    Mary is telling us what to do —
                Priests, religious need this intimacy
                with Jesus — Priests, religious should
                be so in love with Jesus — so
                thankful for the Eucharist and the
                Church — full of love — as Jesus
                for the flock —

                    How is our attitude — like Jesus
                to lay down His life for His flock —
                How are we really growing in our
                vocation of being the Spouse of
                Jesus and working with each other
                for Him in love.

                    We take things for granted and give into
                habits — settle in cubby holes that
                can be spiritual death — what about
                praying for the sinners of this earth —
                making reparation during the
                retreats because we see God is
                offended and deserving of all our love —
                to follow in the footsteps of Jesus
                and Mary — to love with burning
                love — to give —

                We are not to give into our fallen
                    human nature —
                    jealous, envious, prideful,
                    angry, possessive, lust

                Jesus wrote to me the letters of His
                    love in God's Blue Book to
                    FEED THE HUNGRY

                Now I ask you
                Is the world hungry —

                The writings are what priests, sisters,
                    husbands, wives, old people, young
                    people need —

                We were created to know, love and serve
                    God —

                Our happiness depends on our
                    relation with God —

                The closer we are to God — the more
                    happy we are —

                If we go into religious life and do not
                    recognize that we are married to
                    Jesus — we see ourselves as single —
                    we can even see ourselves as
                    deprived, while married people we
                    may think have it so nice —
                    children — little ones —

                Every one who has children are
                    indeed blessed, but God calls
                    religious to be married to Him and
                    the children of the Church, the
                    world are crying —

                One who sees themselves as a religious
                    a priest — must focus on this
                    most intimate love relationship
                    they are to have with Jesus —

                And their role to minister to the
                    children of the Church and world
                    praying for them —

                The fallen angels said
                    "no we will not serve"

                Satan wants people to follow
                    him —
                    say
                    "no we will not serve"
                     be selfish

                What does God want?

                Look at the crucifix —
                    Jesus was selfless —
                    He came in a stable —

                    God wants us to make reparation for
                our sins — God wants us to serve
                Him and Jesus showed us how to serve —

                Look at Jesus on the cross —

                The Mass is the Sacrifice of Calvary,
                Sacramentally made present —

                Death/Resurrection

                God gives us a sharing in His life
                in baptism and Jesus feeds this life
                with Himself in the Eucharist —

                    God calls us
                    and it is our response to His call —
                    God calls us to be holy —

                He took on flesh —
                He walked the earth —
                He suffered telling people the
                    truth —

                He dealt with human men with
                    pride and anger, hatred, lust,
                    selfishness, slothfulness,
                    greed, gluttony

                Jesus endured His suffering for
                    love of us

                Jesus was baptized by John

                Jesus showed Peter, James and John
                    the transfiguration

                TWICE was heard

                "This is My Beloved Son in whom
                    I am well pleased" —

                We are to follow in the footsteps
                    of Jesus — who came to this
                    earth to teach us about
                    being a son and daughter of
                    God the Father —

                Living the Gospel

                Meditating on the Rosary
                is following in the footsteps
                    of Jesus —

                I went into a store today and a woman
                    smiled at me from behind
                    the counter —

                She was so nice —

                I said "you are very kind" —

                She says "I love this, the manager
                    here is so nice — he let's me work
                    10:00 — 2:00 and it is so helpful
                    to me — I love the people and it
                    helps me deal the rest of the day
                    with my husband on dialysis —
                    I thank God — medicine is so good
                    today and then I can be at home for
                    my husband"

                This is being grateful
                This is love

                This is doing what is God's will
                    with your life —
                    smiling and being kind to customers —
                    loving her husband —
                    being glad for the medicine
                        he has

                Jesus: How are you living your life —
                You who have been so richly blessed
                    by Me —
                I have given you My Heart to love —
                I have given you My letters of love in
                                the Blue Books —

                The Shepherds of Christ is a gift that has helped
                    people for over 15 years —

                I long for their love —

                I was stripped of My garments for you
                I was beaten for your sins —
                My Head crowned with thorns —
                I sweat Blood in the garden —

                I gave the last drop of Blood in
                    My Body for you and the last
                    beat of My Heart

                Do you thank Me for My love
                    revealing more and more of Myself
                    for you —

                Oh the devil says —
                    "more — more — they didn't thank
                        you — you aren't appreciated —
                        don't do it
                    expect more from men and give
                        less to your vocation"

                Jesus says I love you, I love you, I love you —

A City on a Hill Shines to the World  (excerpt)

February 23, 1994 5:30 a.m.

Jesus:  I am the light of the world. A city on a hill will shine to the world. You at the Center will be this city when you are filled to the brim with the love of Jesus. What power, what might, to have each person a personal spouse of Jesus Christ! This is the light to the darkened world. The love of Jesus radiates from the very being of those who love Him. What light when all together are lifted by His love abounding deep within their breasts!

Excerpt from February 4, 2007

Messenger:      What is being a saint?

                            It is saying "yes" in love to what God asks of us.
                            It is doing ordinary things — little things in
                                love for souls and to please Jesus..

Excerpt from May 15, 2009

                Jesus: I ask My people to give with an open, willing, loving
                    heart —

                To say yes
                To be holy —

                Holy means you do not give into satan in punishing
                    others —

Excerpt from May 27, 2009

                God gives us this gift and

                He gives us special graces to help us grow
                    in the spiritual life, but we must
                    say "yes" to God and cooperate with
                    the grace —

 

Excerpt from the February 3, 2009 Rosary   

The Visitation

2. Jesus: You can say 'no', or you can say 'yes'. You can say 'let somebody else do it'. You can say 'God is not talking to me' or 'Mary did not appear on the building'. But in all of it, the bottom line is, you are unwilling to do the helping. You do not want to be bothered. And when you hear Me call you softly in your heart, or I ask you to do something, very explicit, you do not listen, because you do not want to.

end of excerpt
 

Excerpt from the December 12, 2008 Rosary

3 R. ... Why do we walk many times, like stubborn mules, when it is just as easy to say yes, yes, yes, yes, yes. And in that lies our happiness and joy, but that devil comes and he says - "You really know you don't like anybody telling you what to do" — while he is telling you what to do when he says it.

4. Jesus: And so I say to you - whose side are you on? You are either with Me or against Me.

5. Jesus: The calling is from Me and the response is to Me.

end of excerpt

     

                Mary is the Queen of heaven
                Mary, full of Grace
                Mary, Mother of God

                Jesus: I call you to be holy — to be likened
                    to My Mother Mary

                Sing: Holy Is His Name

 

 


   

                Sing: See the Eyes that Look at Mary

                Adam and Eve sinned —

                They were given so many gifts
                    in the garden —

                But Adam and Eve sinned

                God sent Jesus, the Son of God
                    a New Adam
                    and God made Mary —
                    a New Eve —

                    Mary from the moment of
                        conception, Mary, was
                        conceived without sin —

                    Mary, a pure and spotless virgin —
   

Hail Mary

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the Fruit of thy womb, Jesus.  Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

    

                Mary is the Immaculate Conception
                Mary is the Mother of our
                    Redeemer

                Mary is the perfect handmaid
                    of the Lord
 


                The Church tells us the truth
 


                God is the Ultimate Mystery

 

From Response to God's Love pp. 1-2

    At the destined moment in human history, God's self-expression, the Word, immersed himself into man's world. God's inner self-expression now had also become God's outer self-expression. Consequently, the mystery of God becomes the mystery of Christ. In Christ, God tells us about himself, about his inner life, about his plan of creation and redemption. He tells us how Father, Son, and Holy Spirit desire to dwell within us in the most intimate fashion, how they wish to share with us their own life through grace.

 


                Mary all pure —

                Mary is so beautiful
 


John 1: 1-5

In the beginning was the Word:
the Word was with God
and the Word was God.
He was with God in the beginning.
Through him all things came into being,
not one thing came into being
   except through him.
What has come into being in him was life,
life that was the light of men;
and light shines in darkness,
and darkness could not overpower it.
 

                We love the Rosary

                We love Mary

                Song: The Rosary Song


 


                Mary is the Arc of the Covenant
   


 

                Joseph was so special
                    chosen by God to be Jesus' foster father

                Jesus lived the quiet years —>
                Jesus was close to His Mother these 30 years

 

                The Mysteries of the Rosary are
                    really the mysteries of the love
                    of the 2 Hearts —

  

Joyful Mysteries

 

                Annunciation

Luke 1: 26-38

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. And I tell you this too: your cousin Elizabeth also, in her old age, has conceived a son, and she whom people called barren is now in her sixth month, for nothing is impossible to God.’ Mary said, ‘You see before you the Lord’s servant, let it happen to me as you have said.’ And the angel left her. 

                (1) Jesus came into the world as a baby
                    in the womb of Mary — such love —
                    God in faithful to His promise —

                (2) Jesus enters a baby —
                    Jesus comes in a stable

                (3) This is a rosary about the love of God —
                    The Father sent Jesus into the world —
                    Mary conceived Jesus in her womb
                    by the power of the Holy Spirit —

                    The love of the Trinity

                (4) From Response to God's Love pp. 1-2

    At the destined moment in human history, God's self-expression, the Word, immersed himself into man's world. God's inner self-expression now had also become God's outer self-expression. Consequently, the mystery of God becomes the mystery of Christ. In Christ, God tells us about himself, about his inner life, about his plan of creation and redemption. He tells us how Father, Son, and Holy Spirit desire to dwell within us in the most intimate fashion, how they wish to share with us their own life through grace. All this he has accomplished and does accomplish through Christ. St. Paul tells us: "I became a minister of this Church through the commission God gave me to preach among you his word in its fullness, that mystery hidden from ages and generations past but now revealed to his holy ones. God has willed to make known to them the glory beyond price which this mystery brings to the Gentiles—the mystery of Christ in you, your hope of glory. This is the Christ we proclaim while we admonish all men and teach them in the full measure of wisdom, hoping to make every man complete in Christ" (Col 1:25-28).

(5) From Response to God's Love p. 2


    The Christian life, then, is rooted in the great event of the Incarnation. We must, consequently, always focus our gaze upon Christ, realizing that everything the Father wishes to tell us has been summed up in the life of Jesus of Nazareth. It only remains for us, then, to fathom ever more deeply the inexhaustible truth of the Word Incarnate: "In times past, God spoke in fragmentary and varied ways to our fathers through the prophets; in this, the final age, he has spoken to us through his Son, whom he has made heir of all things and through whom he first created the universe" (Heb 1:1-2).
 

(6) From Response to God's Love p. 2

    What was the condition of man and his world at the time of Christ's coming? In some ways, people were much the same as we are today. There were those who were just being born into this world of human drama; there were those who, in death, were leaving it, some of whom had grasped but little of life's meaning. There were those who were healthy and vigorous; there were those who were sick and lame. Some especially felt the burdens, the grief, the suffering of the human condition; others were ebullient and desired all the pleasures that life could provide. There was some good being accomplished: there was Rome, for example, with her genius for government and architecture; there was Athens with her philosophers, writers, sculptors, and artists. The moral condition of those times, however, was at a very low ebb. What St. Paul tells us concerning the time that immediately followed Christ's earthly existence certainly could also be applied to the time of his entrance into the world. It is, in short, an ugly picture that Paul depicts for us (Rm 1:22-32).
 

(7) From Response to God's Love p. 3

Into such a depraved condition of mankind Jesus entered, with a full and generous heart, to lead man from the depths of sinfulness to the vibrant richness of a new life in himself. Through his enfleshment, this Christ had become the focal point of all history. The authentic hopes and dreams of the human family, now so deeply overshadowed by the ugliness of sin, came converging upon this Christ. He would gather them up in himself, give them a new luster and brilliance and dynamism, and would lead the human race back to the Father in the Spirit.
 

(8) From Response to God's Love pp. 3-4

    Christ came, then, for a double purpose, or rather for a single purpose that has two facets. He was radically to release us from the dominion of sin and elevate us to a new level of existence. This life that Christ has given us is not a type of superstructure that is erected atop man's human existence. Although nature and grace are distinct, they do not lie side by side as separate entities; rather, grace permeates nature. The Christian is one graced person. In his entirety he has been raised up, caught up, into a deeper form of life in Christ Jesus. Nothing that is authentically human has been excluded from this new existence. Whatever is really human in the life of the Christian is meant to be an expression of the Christ-life. The simple but deep joys of family life, the wonderment at nature's beauty, the kiss that unites lovers, the warm embrace of a mother for her child, the agony of crucial decision making, the success or frustration that is experienced in one's work, the joy of being well received by others, and the heartache of being misunderstood—all these human experiences are intended to be caught up in Christ and made more deeply human because of him. As Karl Rahner has put it: "The basic and ultimate thrust of Christian life consists not so much in the fact that a Christian is a special instance of mankind in general, but rather in the fact that a Christian is simply man as he is. But he is a person who accepts without reservations the whole of concrete human life with all of its adventures, its absurdities, and its incomprehensibilities" (Foundations of Christian Faith, p. 402).

(9) From Response to God's Love p. 4

Christ has come, then, not to destroy anything that is authentically human, but to perfect it by leading it to a graced fulfillment. This is the meaning of the Incarnation. The more God-like we become through Christ, the more human we become.

    As Christians, then, we live in Christ. We have been incorporated into his life, into the mystery of Christ. The mystery of Christ is the Christ event, that is, all the happenings or events of Christ's life, death, and resurrection. We may speak, consequently, not only of the total, unified mystery of Christ, but also of the individual events or mysteries. Christ's mysteries of death and resurrection are central and, in some way, they contain all the other mysteries; but these other mysteries or events also have their own importance.
 

(10) From Response to God's Love pp. 5-6

    There is, then, the temporal, not-to-be repeated dimension of Christ's mysteries. These mysteries, however, possess another aspect, namely, an eternal and perennially dynamic aspect. Jesus, although he has a divine nature and a human nature, is only one person—and that is a divine person. The consequence of this fact is demonstrated in reference to the acts that Christ performed as man. Although they were enacted through Jesus' human nature, these acts are attributed to the divine person and share, as much as a human act can, in the eternity of the divine person who is above the historical, temporal limitations of earthly existence. These events of Jesus' historical existence endure, then, eternally in the glorified Christ, and they endure for a purpose, that is, the mysteries of Christ perennially endure in him so that we might assimilate them. We are thus saved and sanctified by entering into the mystery of Christ, assimilating it, and reproducing it in our own lives according to our particular vocations, graces, and historical exigencies. There is only one manner of life that the Father holds before us, and it is patterned after the existence of his incarnate Son.

    By reliving and reincarnating the mysteries of Christ, we are not only accomplishing our own redemption, but assisting in the continued application of Christ's redemption to all mankind. The Incarnation continues for all time. Christ, of course, is the one who fundamentally continues the Incarnation; but he enlists our help. The world no longer sees Jesus, no longer is able to reach out and touch him. We are the ones who now, in some way, make Christ visible and tangible.
 

 

 

                Visitation

Luke 1: 39-45

Mary set out at that time and went as quickly as she could into the hill country to a town in Judah. She went into Zechariah’s house and greeted Elizabeth. Now it happened that as soon as Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the child leapt in her womb and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. She gave a loud cry and said, ‘Of all women you are the most blessed, and blessed is the fruit of your womb. Why should I be honoured with a visit from the mother of my Lord? Look, the moment your greeting reached my ears, the child in my womb leapt for joy. Yes, blessed is she who believed that the promise made her by the Lord would be fulfilled.’ Yes, blessed is she who believed that the promise made her by the Lord would be fulfilled.’

                (1) Mystery —
                    Elizabeth conceived in her old age
                    Elizabeth who was considered barren —
                    For nothing is impossible with God

                (2) We see the purity of Mary —
                    that God is carried in Mary's womb —
                    The Divine Almighty God makes entrance
                        in the world in the womb of
                        Mary —
                        formed in 9 months, the little baby
                        body

                    - the visitation makes us aware of waiting —
                    - the visitation makes us aware of Mary's
                        pregnancy

                    -the visitation makes us aware of
                        Jesus' baby body being formed
                        out of such love — in the womb
                        of Mary —

                    We are here on earth —
                        being formed more and more in the
                        image of God —
                        Waiting to go to heaven —
                        Preparing for heaven

                    It is love — that God takes on a human nature —
                    It shows us the love He wants with His creatures —
                    It shows us how He gives Himself — in love —
                        to a human person — Mary — to allow
                        Himself to be formed in her

                    Do we realize how much God loves us and we
                        treat this love like it is not much
                        many times —

                    Ponder the love of God to take on a little baby
                        body — to await the birth like any baby
                        on earth —

                    God created man and this is God's Plan that
                        a baby is carried by the mother —
                        Jesus comes this way — according to
                            the laws of nature —
                        Holiness is in living according to God's
                            plan —
                        not rebelling to do it our own way
                        we are preparing for heaven

                    This is the secret of the spiritual life
                        living according to God's plan —

                (3) We are in the state of becoming more and
                    more in that image of Jesus —
                    Becoming — being formed spiritually —
                    like a baby is formed in the womb
                    of the Mother —

                    We are formed in the spiritual womb,
                        the Immaculate Heart of our
                        Mother

                    Mary conceived Jesus through the power
                        of the Holy Spirit

                    The Holy Spirit in Mary's Immaculate
                        Heart — forming us more and more in
                        the image of Jesus —

                    Mary is Mother — spiritual Mother
                    Jesus gave us our Mother as He was
                        dying on the cross

                (4) Mary (her Immaculate Heart) and the
                    Holy Spirit forming us more and
                    more in that image of Jesus —

   

The Holy Spirit

Jesus: "My beloved friend, tell My people to pray daily to the Holy Spirit. They are to pray for an increase in His gifts. My people must realize that the Holy Spirit comes to transform them. The Spirit desires to transform you more and more according to My image. Those who are docile to His touch become increasingly shaped in My likeness. He performs this marvel within Mary's Immaculate Heart. The more one dwells in My Mother's Heart, the more active are the workings of the Spirit. The Spirit leads Mary to place you within My own Heart. In both Our Hearts, then, your transformation continues. The more you are formed after My own Heart, the more I lead you to the bosom of My Father. Tell My people all this. Tell them to pray daily for a greater appreciation of these wondrous gifts. I am Lord and Master. All who come to My Heart will be on fire to receive the gifts of the Spirit in ever greater measure! I love and bless My people!"

Reflection: The Holy Spirit is given to us to fashion us ever more according to the likeness of Jesus. And the more we are like Jesus, the more Jesus leads us to the Father. Do we, each day, pray to the Holy Spirit to be more open to His transforming influence? Do we strive each day to grow in union with Mary? The greater our union with our Mother, the spouse of the Holy Spirit, the greater is the transforming action of the Holy Spirit within us.

 

     

                (5)

                    Mary: What love I have for you my children,
                        come to my Immaculate Heart —
                        Do not give into the evil spirit,
                        satan, the fallen angel —
                        the Holy Spirit loves you so very much —
                        You must pray to the Holy Spirit —
                            tell Him you love Him so much —
                        Pray and ask to be able to discern the
                            spirits
                        The Holy Spirit leads you to holiness —
                            there is harmony, accord,
                            oneness in the Father's will —
                            there is peace, love and joy —

                        The evil spirit wants you to rebel
                            against God's will —
                            he brings you sadness —
                            he wants you angry and dark —
                                empty of love, full of hate
                                and discordant —
                            he wants you to "do it your way"
                                opposed to God's will —
                            then he knows you will have misery

                (6) Mary carried the child Jesus in her
                        womb

                    Sing Song: Holy Is His Name

                (7)

Luke 1: 46-55

And Mary said:

My soul proclaims
    the greatness of the Lord
and my spirit rejoices
    in God my Saviour;
because he has looked upon
    the humiliation of his servant.
Yes, from now onwards
    all generations will call me blessed,
for the Almighty
    has done great things for me.
Holy is his name,
and his faithful love extends age after age
    to those who fear him.
He has used the power of his arm,
he has routed the arrogant of heart.
He has pulled down princes
    from their thrones
        and raised high the lowly.
He has filled the starving with good things,
    sent the rich away empty.
He has come to the help
    of Israel his servant,
        mindful of his faithful love
—according to the promise
    he made to our ancestors—
of his mercy to Abraham
    and to his descendants for ever.

                (8) Mary said "My soul doth magnifies the Lord"
                        doing things different than God's
                        will is because the devil is trying
                        to get you to think "I did it my way"
                            against God's will —

                (9) The devil wants you to control —
                        seek dominance for dominance sake —
                        be combatal — not meek
                        Jesus meek and tender of heart make our
                            hearts likened to Yours —

                (10) Mary: Put a consecration picture in your
                        homes

                        Here is one I told you to have.

  

   

 

                The Birth of Jesus

Luke 2:1-7

Now it happened that at this time Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be made of the whole inhabited world. This census—the first—took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria, and everyone went to be registered, each to his own town. So Joseph set out from the town of Nazareth in Galilee for Judaea, to David’s town called Bethlehem, since he was of David’s House and line, in order to be registered together with Mary, his betrothed, who was with child. Now it happened that, while they were there, the time came for her to have her child, and she gave birth to a son, her first–born. She wrapped him in swaddling clothes and laid him in a manger because there was no room for them in the living–space.
 

                (1) From Response to God's Love p. 1

At the destined moment in human history, God's self-expression, the Word, immersed himself into man's world. God's inner self-expression now had also become God's outer self-expression. Consequently, the mystery of God becomes the mystery of Christ. In Christ, God tells us about himself, about his inner life, about his plan of creation and redemption. He tells us how Father, Son, and Holy Spirit desire to dwell within us in the most intimate fashion, how they wish to share with us their own life through grace.

                (2) From Response to God's Love p. 9

Moreover the personalism of the Incarnation continues. In union with Christ, we are called upon to help him continue his Incarnation in its visible, earthly dimension. Only one framework is available to us according to which we can help further the Incarnation—our personal lives, that is to say, our lives as individuals united as a people, the People of God. The human condition as we experience it—joyfully and painfully, too—also provides the soil for our participation in the continued Incarnation. Redemption continues to take place not when we try to remove ourselves from the human condition, but when we strive to live an authentically human life that is more and more in Christ. It is by living truly personalistic lives—that is, lives springing forth from the greatness of the person as created and redeemed by God, lives that do not flinch from the human condition—that redemption continues to be made visible to this world.

                (3) From Response to God's Love pp. 9-10

Christian personalism centers in our personal relationships with God and others, and again, Christ shows the way. Through the Word made flesh, the life of the Trinity has incarnationally manifested itself to mankind. The life of the Trinity centers in the personal relationships between Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; but God's life is also his love gone out to the human race. The Incarnation projects this Trinitarian life into the temporal sphere. Jesus has come to tell us about Trinitarian life, to give us a share in it, to teach us that through grace we share in God's life—a life of relationships—by entering into deepened personal relationships with God and other persons. Redemption that is received and contributed to is the experience of these relationships. In other words, as Jesus has told us, the Christian life is summed up in love of God and neighbor. Out of these personalized love relationships flow many things; for example, redemption continued is the loving abandonment to the love of God that despite possible fear, allows a person to accomplish things that are totally beyond his or her natural courage. Or again, redemption continued is loving those who are afar off whom I will never see or know, but whom I know are my brothers and my sisters and whom my work and prayer can reach out and touch. Or again, redemption continued is the Christian hope and trust that allows man and woman to take the risk of the mutual self-giving that is marriage. Or again, redemption continued is the black person who continues to relate to his or her white neighbors in faith, hope, and love despite temptations to hatred and bitterness. Or again, redemption continued is the ecstasy and the agony of loving and being loved. Truly, the Incarnation visibly continued is our Christian faith, hope, and love made alive in our personal relationships with God and man.

                (4) From Response to God's Love pp. 10-11

In our assimilation to the mystery of Christ, then, we learn about love and the personalistic. We also learn a further truth—the value of the material, the tangible, in God's plan of redemption. The Incarnation established a set pattern for the redemption of the world, that is, redemption taken both objectively (the historical, salvific life of Christ) and subjectively (the redemption as applied to mankind). Christ redeemed the world through his humanity, which was a created and, in part, a tangible reality. As Jesus' humanity was indispensable for accomplishing the objective redemption, so also created things are necessary for continuing the subjective redemption. An outstanding example of this occurs in the Eucharistic liturgy, for bread and wine—material, tangible realities—are the central focus of the liturgical rite as they are changed into Christ's body and blood.

                (5) From Response to God's Love pp. 5-6

In assuming a human nature, then, Jesus has united to himself not only mankind, but also the material world. Not only the human spirit, but also the human body and the material world have been given a new dignity because of the Incarnation and enter so vitally into the Incarnation continued. Once for all let us lay aside the influence of Manichaeism, Gnosticism, and similar false teachings that denigrate that which is material. It is obvious that we do not always properly use material creation; at such times, we have failed to relate to material creation according to God's will. Let us remember, then, that Christ, in elevating the material to a new dignity, has accomplished this partially through that aspect of the Incarnation that is the cross—a dimension of the Incarnation that, along with its other aspects, must also be present in our encounter with the material. We must realize that such elements as Christian self-discipline and renunciation must find a place in our lives if we are to use material creation according to God's designs.

Luke 2: 25-35

Now in Jerusalem there was a man named Simeon. He was an upright and devout man; he looked forward to the restoration of Israel and the Holy Spirit rested on him. It had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not see death until he had set eyes on the Christ of the Lord. Prompted by the Spirit he came to the Temple; and when the parents brought in the child Jesus to do for him what the Law required, he took him into his arms and blessed God; and he said:

    Now, Master, you are letting 
        your servant go in peace 
    as you promised; 
    for my eyes have seen the salvation 
    which you have made ready 
        in the sight of the nations; 
    a light of revelation for the gentiles 
    and glory for your people Israel.

As the child’s father and mother were wondering at the things that were being said about him, Simeon blessed them and said to Mary his mother, ‘Look, he is destined for the fall and for the rise of many in Israel, destined to be a sign that is opposed—and a sword will pierce your soul too—so that the secret thoughts of many may be laid bare.’

 

                (3) From the Red Rosary Book - The Seven Sorrows - February 22, 1995

The Prophecy of Simeon
Mary, Joseph and the child Jesus went to the temple. Simeon, the prophet, inspired by the Holy Spirit, met them and told Joseph and Mary of the great sufferings of Jesus and Mary. He told Mary that a sword would pierce her heart. From that point on, Mary ever remembered the prophecy of Simeon whenever she beheld her child. When she looked at His little body, even as an infant, she knew He would suffer. Every time she clothed Him and watched Him at play, her heart was torn in her chest as she knew what He would suffer. And a sword, too, shall pierce your Heart, O Mary!

                (4) The Seven Sorrows - February 22, 1995

 

The Flight into Egypt
Joseph was told by the angel to flee. Joseph, Mary and the child Jesus had to flee because of what might happen to Jesus. They had to pack for a long stay. The child Jesus was so small! They left on their journey, hearts full of fear, trying to protect Jesus. They were forced to flee into Egypt.

 

 

                (5) The Seven Sorrows - February 22, 1995

 

Jesus Is Lost, In the Temple
Imagine the sufferings in Mary's heart when she realized the child Jesus was not with them. Think of how it would be to lose your child and not know where he was or if anything happened to him. With sorrow in their hearts, Mary and Joseph returned to Jerusalem to look for the child Jesus. And a sword, too, shall pierce your heart, O Mary!

Jesus Carries His Cross
Song: See the eyes that look at Mary, her tender infant child. See the child's Heart beat so tenderly, the Savior of the world!
See the eyes of Jesus and Mary as they met on Calvary. Mary's Heart knew Jesus' Heart so well! From the first moment of conception and throughout His life, Mary was so connected with Jesus and now she peered into His eyes. The crown of thorns adorned His Head! Blood ran down His face! A heavy cross on His back! Wounded, His whole body covered with bleeding wounds! And her whole life flashed before her, the life that she had spent with Jesus. This was the beloved child that she had held in her arms when Simeon told Mary that 'a sword, too, shall pierce your Heart, O Mary!'

                (7) The Seven Sorrows - February 22, 1995

Jesus Dies on the Cross
Mary stood under Jesus' cross as He was put to death. The child that she had held in her arms as Simeon prophesied, And a sword, too, shall pierce your Heart, O Mary! Now Jesus is dead on the cross! He gave His flesh, He gave His blood so that we might be with Him forever in heaven. He held not back. He gave His all. He calls out to us this day to see through the eyes of His mother as she appears and calls out with a Heart of great love, "Return to the love of my Son! He is with you this day. He remains with you, no less present than the day that He hung on the cross, in the Eucharist. He longs for you to come and be with Him. He is in your brother. How can you not love your brother when Jesus died for your brother?"

Her Heart was pierced with a sword. His Heart was pierced with a lance. What came forth was blood and water, the sacramental life of the church. He lives with us this day in the Church. He gives to us His sacraments, the source of His life! He gives to us the Sacrament of Penance whereby any sin that we commit can be taken away through the priest. He wants us to be so close to Him! He gives us everything to be close to Him. But we see with such limited vision only those things that are right before our face, when the true reality is that which we don't see with our eyes, the reality of the invisible divinity of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, in the consecrated Host! This is reality! This is our life! This is our power! This is God! And a sword, too, shall pierce your Heart, O Mary!

 

                (8) The Seven Sorrows - February 22, 1995

Jesus Is Taken Down from the Cross
If we ever doubted for one second that we were loved, we could visualize the picture of Mary as she sat beneath the cross with the lifeless, battered, bruised and bloodied body of her Son in her arms, the same child that she held when Simeon prophesied her suffering. He gave His last breath. He gave the last beat of His Heart. He gave His all! This is the way He complied with the Will of the Father. He came to show us the way. He died in perfect peace. To His death He was in peace because He knew the Father's love. The Father loves us so much that He gave His only begotten Son for love of us! The Spirit descended upon the Virgin Mary and the Word was made flesh! The love of the Two Hearts! Such immense love beating for us!

In all love there is suffering. Her Heart was pierced with a sword. His Heart was pierced with a lance. And a sword, too, shall pierce your Heart, O Mary!

                (9) The Seven Sorrows - February 22, 1995

Jesus Is Locked in the Tomb
And now Jesus, His body lifeless, is locked in a tomb! What cold reality for Mary to realize that His body is now gone! A stone separated her from her Son!

He gave His last breath! He gave the last beat of His Heart for love of each one of us! And she comes to us this day with her sweet, beautiful voice and she asks us to go to her Son and love Him! How can we refuse Jesus who spread His arms and gave His life for each and every one of us? How can we not trust Him when He loved us so much that He allowed them to tear His flesh, to crown Him with piercing thorns and, lastly, to hang Him on a cross? He truly gave His life for us! He, truly God, is with us this day, the same as the day He died on the cross, in the tabernacle! And we take it so lightly! Death has no power over Him! Locked in the tomb for three days, He rose triumphant on the third day as He had foretold. He comes to give us life. He gives us the sacrament of Baptism that initiates us into His life, that makes us children of God and heirs of heaven if we remain in the state of grace. He asks two things: love of God and love of one another! He came to show us the way and His way is love. To His death on the cross He loved each one of us! He calls out to each one of us here today to be His soldiers, to march on a world that has forgotten God, that has forgotten what it is like to love! It is a battle to live in this world. But the battle is won with hearts that are filled with His love, empowered by the grace and might that He pours out in the Eucharist. He calls out for us to come to the Eucharist and to the tabernacle and be fed with His very flesh and blood. To feed on Divine Life, the greatest nourishment, the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, the Son of God! This is the love He gives. This is the love He asks us to share.

 

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

   

                The Finding of Jesus in the Temple

                (1)

Luke 2: 41-50

Every year his parents used to go to Jerusalem for the feast of the Passover. When he was twelve years old, they went up for the feast as usual. When the days of the feast were over and they set off home, the boy Jesus stayed behind in Jerusalem without his parents knowing it. They assumed he was somewhere in the party, and it was only after a day’s journey that they went to look for him among their relations and acquaintances. When they failed to find him they went back to Jerusalem looking for him everywhere. 

    It happened that, three days later, they found him in the Temple, sitting among the teachers, listening to them, and asking them questions; and all those who heard him were astounded at his intelligence and his replies. They were overcome when they saw him, and his mother said to him, ‘My child, why have you done this to us? See how worried your father and I have been, looking for you.’ He replied, ‘Why were you looking for me? Did you not know that I must be in my Father’s house?’ But they did not understand what he meant.

 

                (2) Sing: The Rosary Song

                (3) Meditate on this mystery —
                        Jesus' wisdom
                        Jesus the Teacher
                        Jesus a child of 12

                (4) From St. Ignatius

                        "What have I done for Christ?"
                        "What am I doing for Christ?"
                        "What ought I to do for Christ?"
 

                (5)

Prayer from St. Ignatius

Lord, teach me to be generous.
Teach me to serve you as you deserve;
To give and not to count the cost;
To fight and not to heed the wounds;
To toil and not to seek for rest;
To labor and not to ask for any reward,
Save that of knowing
                    that I am doing your will.

                (6) Try to examine your conscience
                        twice a day as Fr. Carter did

 

 

                    Stop twice 10 minutes
                    Thank God for all He has given us —
                        say the generous prayer —

                    Think about how God has given us so
                        much to reveal Himself to us —

                    Tell God you are sorry for your lack
                        of gratitude before.

                    Pray for grace to see all that God has given us
                        and live our vocation in
                        the Shepherds of Christ helping souls,
                        the priests and the world —

                    Discern the spirits

                    See how you are following the Holy Spirit
                        doing God's will —
                        or are we doing  our will opposed
                        to God's will and listening
                        to the evil one, the fallen angel,
                        satan —
                        just because we want something

                (7) Dear God — teach us to be generous —
                        help us to discern the spirits and
                        do Your will always —
                        help us to be thankful for our
                        vocation in the Shepherds of Christ and serve
                        You as You deserve to be served —
                        Oh God help us to love You and love and
                        respect those You have called us
                        to work with in the Shepherds of Christ and
                        work together according to Your
                        will to accomplish this great
                        work — for the priests, the Church
                        and the world —
                        God help us to be holy — to work
                        in peace, love and joy and let go
                        of inordinate attachments
                        God we thank and love You

                (8)

                (9)

        Prayer of St Ignatius

Soul of Christ, sanctify me
Body of Christ, save me
Blood of Christ, inebriate me
Water from the side of Christ wash me
Passion of Christ, strengthen me
O good Jesus, hear me
Within Thy wounds hide me
Permit me not to be separated from Thee
From the wicked foe defend me
at the hour of my death call me
and bid me come to Thee
That with Thy saints I may praise Thee
For ever and ever. Amen.

                Sing: Take Lord Receive

                (10) This is about finding ourselves —
                        when we are being pressed
                        on to follow the fallen angel —
                        instead of following God —
                        praying through the intercession
                        of Mary our spiritual Mother,
                        through the intercession of the
                        angels and saints and souls in purgatory

                    God teach us to be generous and
                    Love our vocation —

 

 

                Living in the spiritual womb of
                    Mary with the Holy Spirit guiding us
                    and filling us with love —

                Living in the Heart of Jesus is
                    Our little heaven on earth —

                Let your consecration be a
                    real giving of yourself
                    to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary —
                    not words you rattle off —
                    with no commitment

 

Act of consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

"Lord Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the flock, I consecrate myself to Your most Sacred Heart. From Your pierced Heart the Church was born, the Church You have called me, as a member of Shepherds of Christ Associates, to serve in a most special way. You reveal Your Heart as a symbol of Your love in all its aspects, including Your most special love for me, whom You have chosen as Your companion in this most important work. Help me to always love You in return. Help me to give myself entirely to You. Help me always to pour out my life in love of God and neighbor! Heart of Jesus, I place my trust in You!

"Dear Blessed Virgin Mary, I consecrate myself to your maternal and Immaculate Heart, this Heart which is symbol of your life of love. You are the Mother of my Savior. You are also my Mother. You love me with a most special love as a member of Shepherds of Christ Associates, a movement created by your Son as a powerful instrument for the renewal of the Church and the world. In a return of love, I give myself entirely to your motherly love and protection. You followed Jesus perfectly. You are His first and perfect disciple. Teach me to imitate you in the putting on of Christ. Be my motherly intercessor so that, through your Immaculate Heart, I may be guided to an ever closer union with the pierced Heart of Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the flock."

 

                This is a rosary of the love
                    Jesus and Mary have for us —
                    the love of the Father and the Holy Spirit

                Sing: Give me Your Heart Oh Jesus —

                Song: I Love You Jesus

      Betty is a handmaid who has prayed in the

        China Church for 11 years. To get from her

        house to the church she uses a walker and

        must go over a creek and a little bridge.

        We wanted a little place she could rest

        by the Church. We need about $1,000 to

        make this happen. Can you help us?

July 31, 1994

Words of Jesus to Members of
Shepherds of Christ Associates:

"My beloved priest-companion, I intend to use the priestly newsletter, Shepherds of Christ, and the movement, Shepherds of Christ Associates, in a powerful way for the renewal of My Church and the world.

"I will use the newsletter and the chapters of Shepherds of Christ Associates as a powerful instrument for spreading devotion to My Heart and My Mother's Heart.

"I am calling many to become members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. To all of them I will give great blessings. I will use them as instruments to help bring about the triumph of the Immaculate Heart and the reign of My Sacred Heart. I will give great graces to the members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. I will call them to be deeply united to My Heart and to Mary's Heart as I lead them ever closer to My Father in the Holy Spirit."

- Message from Jesus to Father Edward J. Carter, S.J., Founder, as given on July 31, 1994,
feast of Saint Ignatius Loyola, Founder of the Society of Jesus (The Jesuits)
