September 14th Holy Spirit Novena
Scripture selection is Day 2 Period I.
The Novena Rosary Mystery
for September 14th is Sorrowful.

       Jesus wants oneness.

                            We can be with people and not be with 

                                people and still be united.

                            Marriage is a special kind of union.

                            Two people decide they want to live with

                                each other forever.

                            There is an enormous advantage to this,

                                sharing ones life, but there is

                                a sacrifice involved.

                            There is no longer the freedom of being

                                by oneself.

                            In communities, people must learn to

                                live together.

                            Many times in communities people try to

                                be by themselves.

                            There can be tremendous growth if one 

                                learns to live in love with others.

                                We are here to be more perfected in our

                                ways of loving, more one, as God wants.

                            Whatever your state of life at this time

                                spend some time thinking of what

                                it would be like to always be

                                surrounded by people. Could you

                                live this state of life and still

                                be loving?

                            Our life is spent here to live out the

                                state of life God has called us to.

                            Our life is to be lived to be able to grow

                                in greater perfection.

                            Sometimes things seem difficult until God

                                calls us to something else that is

                                more difficult and we say "boy what

                                I had before was a piece of cake".

                            God is always calling us to greater union

                                with Him.

                            God is calling us to identify with Him

                                more and more.

                                God may be giving us a greater cross to

                            carry every day as we grow to be more like

                            Him, as we learn to love all others more deeply.

                                There can be great strides toward perfection

                            when one learns to live lovingly with others.

                                God wants us to walk hand in hand growing

                            to be more perfected in our ways.

                                One really sees their faults sometimes

                            when they live with others.

                                The key is love.

                                The key is living to be more perfected like Him.

                                The key is that we realize we are to be one

                            in Him.

                            In the Church we are the body of Christ.

                            We want to be more aware of what it

                                is to be one and yet not lose

                                our uniqueness. We are all unique.

                            We have been individually called to

                                do certain things.

                            So much can be accomplished in working

                                together according to God's will.

                                Some people who have been called to work

                            in community life and with others have

                            tried to maintain a "married–singles" attitude.

                                I consider myself a mystic—one who deeply

                            has mystical experiences or experiences

                            deeply the hidden mysteries. This is our

                            life here to live to experience the hidden

                            mysteries more deeply, but I must learn

                            to work in love with others. I experience more

                            and more what it is to be one happy family

                            loving God and one another.

                                Christ lived amongst His Apostles.

                            Christ spent His time training and teaching

                            them. He lived a quiet life for thirty

                            years. Christ life was perfectly lived.

                            He spent time by Himself, He deeply

                            connected with His Apostles so they

                            could carry on His work.

                                We cannot all be little old men and

                            little old ladies living in solitude or

                            a lot of what needs to be past on,

                            on this earth would not happen.

                                We must live the state we have been

                            called, utilizing every moment to

                            help us grow in greater perfection

                            to help promote His Kingdom.

                                Think of how many people have

                            married—only waking on the day after

                            the wedding day to realize, they

                            are supposed to live with this person

                            for the rest of their life.

                                How is it if one that someone marries

                            continues to want a married–single life?

                                Some people are critical of the other,

                            making remarks that focus harshly on

                            the others faults just to push the other

                            way. They can make an invisible wall.

                                Nasty remarks by some are used, just

                            so someone can get their space.

                                The way one acts, the remarks one makes,

                            can be used to build very thick walls. A person

                            can isolate themselves in a family by being

                            mean to others. Some people can do this in

                            a car just to get their space, or a vacation room.

                                A person can focus on another, criticize

                            them, look on them with disrespect, 

                            not honor them as a child of God, 

                            really dishonor them, just to 

                            get space for themselves.

                                It is a very difficult thing to

                            live closely with another, honoring

                            one another and trying to grow in

                            greater perfection according to God's will.

                                In communities many just ignore

                            the others and continue living a

                            "married–singles" life.

                                If God wants a person to be in a

                            community to live together, it is a

                            tremendous opportunity to advance in

                            greater perfection individually and learn

                            how to love others more deeply.

                                God created us to love and work

                            hand in hand with one another

                            every person living according

                            to God's will.

                                Some people He has called to be 

                            hermits, but these persons are deeply

                            connected to others in the world

                            in their hearts, if they are living

                            according to His will.

                                The bottom line is to learn to love

                                  Our whole life is to be lived to

                            learn to love more deeply to be more

                            likened to God.

                                God is love.

                                We were not put here to shut ourselves

                            off in a tomb.

                                Some people never get close to others.

                            They always keep themselves sort of

                            disconnected. "It is better to have loved and

                            lost, than not to have loved at all." Have you

                            ever heard this?

                                I don't believe we ever stop loving,

                            if we love as God wants. If one rejects us

                            and we truly love them we still love them.

                                Our hearts are made for love.

                                When someone dies we still feel

                            connected to them in our hearts.

                            Their love, (the deceased) the love they

                            shared with us in life is still alive in our hearts.

                                I am deeply connected in my heart in a 

                            loving relationship with the saints.

                                My life is not spent here to isolate

                            myself, or be in control to the point

                            I never connect deeply in my heart

                            to others.

                                We may love some more deeply than

                            others and be able to share ourselves

                            with them more than others.

                                The love we give to others can

                            live on and on in their hearts

                            like ripples on a pond.

                                God's love is a light in our hearts

                            that shines to others. Mary's love for

                            us can be deeply felt in our hearts.

                            Fr. Carter saw himself as a little baby

                            in Mary's arms.

                                We have so many years here to

                            learn about lovethe person that never

                            takes the risk of sharing themselves deeply

                            with others can miss a big chance of 

                            knowing what it is to love more fully.

                                In communities many barely tolerate

                            each other. This is not the idea God

                            intended. God intends us to grow together

                            in love.

                                Some people live in the same house

                            and because one is unwilling to share

                            with the other, the other is forced to live

                            in this very unloving relationship. Some

                            families are very unloving. Because someone

                            is unloving to us, it does not control the

                            love in my heart for them.

                                Some people think they "know it all" 

                            and do not realize that every moment

                            until we die we are supposed to learn

                            how to love more deeply, love more 

                            like Christ. The more deeply we love

                            God the greater our capacity to love.

                                Love must be done always

                            according to God's will. Touching

                            one another physically is not necessary

                            for deep holy love.

                                Our love is always centered in

                            Our Beloved God. Jesus is our

                            Beloved Spouse. In growing

                            in deeper oneness with Him we

                            can grow in deeper love with

                            each other.

                                We are here to love one another

                            that may not mean—the deep affectionate

                            love of a husband and wife, that might

                            mean—tolerance and kindness to

                            those we live with in communities.

                            Doing God's will can be very difficult.

                            We can love another deeply in

                            loving sacrifice. We can work with the

                            others—that quiet love is there. May

                            the life we have be lived to always 

                            love and serve God.
