Joyful Mysteries
Feast of St. Frances of Rome
First Week of Lent
, Thursday

The Annunciation

1. R. The angel Gabriel appeared to Mary and asked her to be the Mother of Jesus.

2.  Luke 1: 38  Mary always complied to the Father's will. Mary said ‘You see before you the Lord’s servant, let it happen to me as you have said.’...  

3. R. Mary was filled with the Holy Spirit and the Word became flesh and dwelt among us.

4. R. Let us meditate on the incarnation. God sent His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, the Son of God, into this world out of greatest love for each one of us. He comes to us a helpless little baby in the womb of the Virgin Mary.

5. R. We do not see any of His power and majesty. We see Mary as she carried the child Jesus. Within Mary's womb was God! The visible eye does not behold the majesty of the Almighty God as the visible eye does not behold the majesty of the Almighty God present in the Eucharist.

6. R. When the priest holds up the consecrated Host, when we see Jesus exposed in the Monstrance, this is Jesus Who was inside of Mary's womb and hung for three agonizing hours on the cross. Give us the grace to more and more realize that this is truly God, that He is present with us. Help us to let go, to quit holding on, to let go and experience God that is in our midst this very day. This same Jesus Christ Who hung on the cross remains in the Tabernacle in this room with us in the consecrated host. We should be on the floor in such awe that God is present and so close to us - in this very room in the Eucharist.

7. R. Jesus is truly present here. Minute by minute, second by second, God dwells in our graced baptized soul. God is inside of our hearts with such love. We do not take the time, we keep ourselves at an arms length from Him when He is so close. It takes meditating on His presence, the reality that God is truly here. His grace will help us know Jesus is truly present here and with us.

8. R. We are immensely blind! The Son of God is in our midst. He asks us to have faith, to know that one day we will be with Him, the Father and the Holy Spirit in such an immense union in Heaven. He comes and calls us to love. Mary always did the will of the Father. We are to live in the Father's will, to be children of the Father.

9. Jesus: Be as little babies at the breast. Let go, surrender. The work that I have for you is work that requires your surrender. You must let go and experience the great grace that I am giving to you to feel My presence with you, to know that I am talking to you. It takes letting go! You must not hold back. Believe! You will be close to My Heart. If you let go and you believe, you will experience such closeness that you will be at joy and peace in your heart. You must let go and realize that I am dealing with you minute by minute, second by second. The very hairs of your head are numbered. I never leave you. I am so close to you. My Mother is forever by your side.

10. R. Mary suffered much ridicule in her life, but she knew the Father's love, she knew the Father's will, she knew what it was to have the Son of God within her.

Jesus: I give Myself to you. I come into your heart in the Eucharist. Who are you, that I, God, come inside of you! You must let go and focus on My presence with you. Let go of all distractions and let Me permeate your being and penetrate your soul for I am truly here in My Divinity and humanity and I fill you abundantly with My grace, My life in you.

(Song between decades: Ave, Ave, Ave, Maria. Ave, Ave, Ave, Maria)

Song: Praise God from who all blessing flow. Praise Him all creatures here below. Praise Him above ye heavenly host. Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost. Amen.

   

 

The Visitation of Mary to Elizabeth

1. R. Mary made haste to the hill country to visit her cousin Elizabeth who was with child.

2. R. When she arrived, Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit and cried out in a loud voice:  
Luke 1: 42-43
 "‘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?"

3. R. Mary was filled with the Holy Spirit and called out in a loud voice the Magnificat.

4. Luke 1: 46-48

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,
 

5. Luke 1: 49

for the Almighty
    has done great things for me.
Holy is his name,

6. R. The child within Elizabeth's womb leapt for joy at the sight of Mary and Jesus. Even before his birth, John the Baptist proclaims the glory of the Lord from the womb of his mother.

Song: A Voice Cries Out in the Wilderness

7. R. As John the Baptist prepared the way for the coming of Christ, Jesus asks us to be witnesses today — spreading the good news. Jesus died! Jesus rose. He will come again!

8. Luke 1: 76

     And you, little child,
     you shall be called
         Prophet of the Most High
      for you will go before the Lord
      to prepare a way for him,

9. R. Shout it from the highways and the byways that Jesus is Lord — He has died — He has risen!

10. R. Zachary's tongue was loosed. He could speak and he said: "He name will be John"! Jesus calls us by name. He calls us to go out into the world and to spread the Gospel for it is truly the Good News! He is in our midst this very day and His love is without bounds. We have such Good News to spread. Who are we that God loves us so much and why would we want to hold this Good News back from the world? God is a good God. In His Majesty and Might, He came into this world a helpless baby for greatest love of each and every soul. He gave His flesh, He gave His Blood, He gave His all that souls might have eternal life and have it to the full!

Song: I come to you with greatest love

(Song between decades: Ave, Ave, Ave, Maria. Ave, Ave, Ave, Maria)

   

 

The Birth of Jesus

1. R. Jesus came into this world in a stable in the town of Bethlehem. He laid His head in a manger because there was not room for Him in the
Inn. He died on a cross, hanging on bare wood. Jesus came to show us the way, to show us that the way to eternal happiness is not with the things of this world, but the way to eternal happiness is to surrender our lives totally to Him, to God the Father's will. This is the way to everlasting life! Our goal is to love God with our whole heart, our whole soul and our whole being and love our neighbor as our self. But our goal is to love and obey God to go to heaven. We are children of God. God wants us to know His immense love. He wants us to love Him and to love one another. Jesus' birth is love, the immense love He has for us. The Father sent His only begotten Son into this world. Who are we that God loves us so much? When we feel love in our hearts, we can get scared and shut our hearts down. God is Love! Let His love permeate our being and fill our hearts with warmth and joy. Love as Jesus loved us, always giving, always caring, always kindness. He comes to each one of us to be His spouse, to be so closely united to us that minute by minute, the Bridegroom of our Soul waits in our heart, waits for us to realize His immense love for us.

2. R. Jesus is the Bridegroom of our soul. We can unite with God Who wants intimacy with us. God is love. God is all holy and pure. He calls us to holiness, to be more and more perfect as our Heavenly Father is perfect. But to realize that when we sin, we can go to Him and tell Him as a small child "I am sorry", and to move on to love again in this world which is in need of God's love coming through us.

3. R. Love cannot unite with hate. The reward of ridding ourselves of bitterness and anger, of coming from a place of kindness and purity and gentleness, is a closer and closer union with our Precious Lord. Jesus died and rose!

4. R. He is truly present in the Eucharist. Think about the Incarnation. See the immense love that the Father has for us, that He sent His only begotten Son into the world.

5. Song: I come to you with greatest love

R. Jesus is in our midst this day, no less present than the day He was in the stable in Bethlehem. He is in the Tabernacle, the same Jesus. His presence is the same with us in this room in the Eucharist.

6. R. Picture the child Jesus in the manager in Bethlehem. See the baby! See Mary and Joseph! Would you like to be there, to be with Jesus? Jesus is with us this day and He is here in the Eucharist in His Divinity and humanity no less present than He was in the crib in Bethlehem. How blind we are! How we turn off our hearts and He knocks and knocks and knocks to enter and be ever closer to us!

Jesus: If the world hates you, remember how they hated Me!

7. R. The angels sang and the shepherds watched! The Child Jesus, the little child, was born in a stable in Bethlehem. The Child Jesus is so much with us. In praying to the Child Jesus we can become closer and closer and closer to God. To want to know Jesus from His childhood through His whole life until He ascended into Heaven. To meditate on this. Praying to the Child Jesus is so powerful.

8. R. We want to live the mystery of Jesus' life, death and resurrection in our lives. He remains with us with greatest love today!

9. Song: Oh Burning Heart, O Love Divine

10. Sing: Silent Night

(Song between decades: Ave, Ave, Ave, Maria. Ave, Ave, Ave, Maria)

 

 

The Presentation of Jesus in the Temple

1. R. Jesus was taken up to the Temple. Joseph, Mary and Jesus met Simeon.  We are given the sacrament of baptism. God lavishly gives His love to us. In baptism we receive a sharing in His life.

2. R. Focus now on the love God is outpouring in your heart, the oneness God wants with us. Let go! Believe in what you are hearing here! Just experience the love that Jesus and Mary want to outpour to you. Empty your mind of any distractions with your family, with your work, and be focused on God's presence in you. Believe with all your heart.

3. R. Mary and Jesus' eyes peered into each other's eyes!

Jesus: Such love I have for My Mother! Such suffering I saw on her face! Her face covered with tears, reddened and so sorrowful! Do you know what it is to see someone you love in such pain? This is the love that My Mother and I have for you.

4. Jesus: Focus on the Passion, focus on Our sufferings. Take time this Lent and be with Me in the Passion. Your rewards will be so great for I will give you abundant graces to meditate on My Passion. Let the mystery live in your lives. Will you let go as I ask you?

5. Jesus: Think of Me in your heart! See My Mother as she held Me in her arms and see her now as Our eyes meet on the way to Calvary. This oneness between Me and My Mother is so great. You will know more and more of My Love when you pray to be united ever closer to My Mother. She is your key to intimacy with Me.

6. Jesus: Always pray to the Holy Spirit before every rosary. Sing the song "Come Holy Spirit" often throughout your day.

7. Jesus: Keep your minds pure, holy and upward lifted. Do not give in to yourselves. Do not let satan taunt you. Keep your minds always rooted in Me for I am outpouring abundant graces to each one present in these rosaries. I am truly here with you in these rosaries. Listen to Me speak, speaking in every letter that I write. Every word that I speak of My love are My words to you. You will have greater union with Me if you will read these letters with such intense love in your heart. Pray to have faith. Believe. It is in this belief you will be united closely to Me. I am Jesus Christ, the Son of God, and I want you to do this work.

8. Jesus: Do you want union with Me? I speak to Rita over and over again. Read these letters. When you read these letters with faith, you will experience a presence that you cannot explain. The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit is forever within you in your graced baptized soul. When you read the letters, focus on this indwelling of the Trinity in your heart, for God is present in a special way in the graced baptized soul. It is in your belief that you will experience greater union.

9. Jesus: Seeing and hearing are not the keys to this union. It is deep seeded in your hearts. You must let go. Believe! Focus on your hearts! Do not focus on miracles! Do not focus on signs! Focus on the presence in your hearts. Read the letters as coming from Me so that every word is a light that radiates in your being, a light that will shine to the darkened world. You do not know the seriousness of the problems of this world. Souls are blind, deaf and dumb!

10. Jesus: I am calling you to intense union with Me so that I can operate from your very being. The situation is so serious. People's hearts are cold and dark. I cry out to you from the depth of My soul to listen to My pleading for souls will be condemned to eternal damnation and you contain personal love letters from Jesus Christ, the Son of God, love letters that will melt the hardened hearts. I ask you to help Me spread this message to the world.

(Song between decades: Ave, Ave, Ave, Maria. Ave, Ave, Ave, Maria)

 

 

 

The Finding of the Jesus in the Temple

1. Jesus: Make a place for the Child Jesus in your heart, now. I stand at the door of your heart and I tap ever so gently. You do not realize the immensity of My love. Open up your hearts to Me for I am here and in your midst. I want to give you My love.

2. Song: Come unto Me all who are weary

3. Jesus: I call out to you from the depths of My Heart and you block My union with you. I want to be so closely united. This is My life that I am outpouring to you. You will feel me filling your soul. Nothing in your world compares to this — I outpour My grace.

4. Jesus: Total peace! Total surrender! I am Jesus, your Savior. You must come to Me, for I truly want to be one with you! I send you into the world as My special soldiers to spread the light of My love in every corner of this world.

5. John 14: 6  Jesus said: I am the Way; I am Truth and Life... 

Jesus: I come to you with greatest love. I am All Powerful! I am All Knowing! I remain with you in the Tabernacle this day. I outpour to you grace and wisdom as you come and sit with Me. Grace and wisdom as you will never find in this world. Come to Me! Come to Me in silence throughout the day, little periods of silence. When you feel unsettled, come and sit for three minutes and let go and focus on Me and My love, the love in My Heart. Come through My wounded side into My Most Precious Heart.

6. Jesus: Through My pierced side, I give Myself to you. You come to My pierced side and enter into the abundant love that I outpour to you in My Heart. Come and rest in My Heart. As you yearn to be ever closer to My Heart, come deeply into the wound in My side and you will enter the love of My Most Sacred Heart.

7. Jesus: You are children who need to be taught. I teach all My precious ones with such wisdom. Do not tell yourselves that you will not understand. As I give, you will receive. I outpour My grace to you. I outpour My grace abundantly to those who come to Me and sit with Me in front of the Tabernacle. Do you want to know Me more, then you will come and be with Me. Be with Me after communion and stay with Me. I outpour My grace to you after communion, My abundant grace, I give you wisdom and you know Me more intimately

8. Jesus: How many of My precious souls are so lost and cannot find their way? I send you out into this world. I send you into battle, with your hearts filled with My love.

9. Song: Come unto Me all who are weary

10. Jesus: Minute by minute, second by second, I provide you with all you need.

(Song between decades: Ave, Ave, Ave, Maria. Ave, Ave, Ave, Maria)

 

R. This rosary was prayed before Jesus and Our Mother of Sorrows in the Holy Spirit Chapel. Rita, Cathy, Joe and Marty were present.

Both Rita and Marty were deeply experiencing special gifts. Rita stated after the Second Mystery that Mary was glistening in white - light all around her. Rita privately thanked Mary and stated that Mary responded: "thank you for all the work you are doing".

                Today's Readings
 

Colossians 1: 1-8

From Paul, by the will of God an apostle of Christ Jesus, and from our brother Timothy to God's holy people in Colossae, our faithful brothers in Christ. Grace and peace to you from God our Father.

We give thanks for you to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, continually in our prayers, ever since we heard about your faith in Christ Jesus and the love that you show towards all God’s holy people because of the hope which is stored up for you in heaven. News of this hope reached you not long ago through the word of truth, the gospel that came to you in the same way as it is bearing fruit and growing throughout the world. It has had the same effect among you, ever since you heard about the grace of God and recognised it for what it truly is. This you learnt from Epaphras, our very dear fellow–worker and a trustworthy deputy for us as Christ’s servant, and it was he who also told us all about your love in the Spirit.

 

Psalm 52: 10, 11

But I, like a flourishing olive tree
    in the house of God,
put my trust in God's faithful love,
    for ever and ever.

I shall praise you for ever
    for what you have done,
and shall trust in your name, so full of goodness,
    in the presence of your faithful.

 

Luke 4: 38-44

Leaving the synagogue he went to Simon's house. Now Simon's mother-in-law was in the grip of a high fever and they asked him to do something for her. Standing over her he rebuked the fever and it left her. And she immediately got up and began to serve them.

At sunset all those who had friends suffering from diseases of one kind or another brought them to him, and laying his hands on each he cured them. Devils too came out of many people, shouting, 'You are the Son of God.' But he warned them and would not allow them to speak because they knew that he was the Christ.

When daylight came he left the house and made his way to a lonely place. The crowds went to look for him, and when they had caught up with him they wanted to prevent him leaving them, but he answered, 'I must proclaim the good news of the kingdom of God to the other towns too, because that is what I was sent to do.' And he continued his proclamation in the synagogues of Judaea.

     

                R. Beginning of St. Paul's letter to the Colossians

                Community by Turkey by Ephesus

                Paul did not start them —

                Paul is writing to them telling them
                    about the faith they have
                    accepted —

                Grace and Peace to you

                We hear your teachings —
                We know more the truth —

                The fruit will come from us
                    if we listen and if we
                    live by the Word —

                I trust in Your mercy oh God —

                Oh God thank You for Your
                    great work —

                Oh God I love You —

                In the Gospel Jesus taught them
                In the Gospel we see Jesus is the Divine healer —

                1st Reading —
                    St. Paul says he is an Apostle
                        of Christ Jesus by the
                        will of God —

                    Telling them — he has authority
                        to teach them —

                The Gospel is a snap-shot in the
                    life of Jesus —
                    Jesus healed someone —
                    He went to Peter's house and healed
                    Peter's mother-in-law —
                    and she took care of Him —

                At sunset people were brought
                    to Him to heal —

                Sunset was the end of the Sabbath
                    so they were not violating the Sabbath —

                But the next day —
                    Jesus was up and He was praying

                Jesus came to establish a
                    Kingdom —

                Jesus' strength came from His prayers —

                God listens to our prayer —
                God is merciful —

                We pray for our leaders —
                We pray for the sick and suffering —
                We pray for the school students —
                We pray for the souls in purgatory —

                We want to be one in You Jesus
                    our beloved God —

                We thank You for the Mass —

                We petition You for our needs —

                We love You and offer You ourselves —

 

Prayer for Union with Jesus

Come to me, Lord, and possess my soul. Come into my heart and permeate my soul. Help me to sit in silence with You and let You work in my heart.

    I am Yours to possess. I am Yours to use. I want to be selfless and only exist in You. Help me to spoon out all that is me and be an empty vessel ready to be filled by You. Help me to die to myself and live only for You. Use me as You will. Let me never draw my attention back to myself. I only want to operate as You do, dwelling within me.

    I am Yours, Lord. I want to have my life in You. I want to do the will of the Father. Give me the strength to put aside the world and let You operate my very being. Help me to act as You desire. Strengthen me against the distractions of the devil to take me from Your work.

    When I worry, I have taken my focus off of You and placed it on myself. Help me not to give in to the promptings of others to change what in my heart You are making very clear to me. I worship You, I adore You and I love You. Come and dwell in me now.

-God's Blue Book, January 17, 1994

Guiding Light - Steadfast to the Son
Inspiring Homilies Covering Cycle A of the Liturgical Year
$ 10.00 plus postage

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 - Feed My Soul
Inspiring Homilies Covering Cycle C of the Liturgical Year
$ 10.00 plus postage

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 - Focusing on the Word
Inspiring Homilies Covering Cycle B of the Liturgical Year
$ 10.00 plus postage

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

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

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
