Messenger:Think of the Descent of the Holy Spirit on the Apostles —
We communicate with language.
Satan can work to help block communication.
We can become frustrated explaining something
simple like mailing a package —
But the desire of the heart is love — even though
communication is blocked — a way we may
be sure we need to act to accomplish our goal!!
Look at the dirty vessels of the Gospel —
Frustration no matter how hard cannot lead us to
The graced filled soul always sees the wide
Our focus must be on the Big picture, not
the baby frustrations.
You know I went to Clearwater today and there is
one turn I must take on 60 West — once I
went to 60 East and I ended up at the
Atlantic ocean and really off my mark at
the wrong coast —
It was definitely the wrong way to the 5th and
Clearwater and I just didn't know it —
I was new taking this route and I kept
going and going and going and ended up in the
opposite direction —
How is our life?
If we fail to see that life comes with suffering and
every time we are met with frustration we
take a road that gives us pleasures to release
Did not Jesus show us the Paschal mystery of
death - resurrection.
I sure know so.
I have meditated on the mysteries of the rosary and
read the scriptures about the passion and death
God-made-man — all perfection — whipped, crowned
with thorns, spit on, mocked, rejected,
scorn — and in the garden —
He knew how He would bleed and
He knew how His head would
be crowned with thorns
He knew the nails in His hands —
The pain, the pain, the pain He
And like a runner, running to the finish line — He
was consumed with love in His heart for you
and me — knowing full well the anguish, the pain —
He ran literally in His Heart to the finish
line of mounting the cross and dying —
saying with a mouth that could barely
Here is your mother —
He gave us His words of love —
He gave us Mary our Mother —
When He could barely speak — He gave
us Mary —
He was so consumed with love for me and you — even
hanging on the cross —
He shed the last drop of His Blood for you
and me — knowing full well how
awful it would be
I remember having my first child 36 years
In the pregnancy I did not know how
the birth would be, but I knew
I couldn't do anything, but go
through it — to have the baby —
He knew how awful it would be to die
on the cross and He said
Thy Will be done —
I thirst —
Yes Jesus, thirsted for the souls that He loved
so much and would reject Him — treat
His great gift of the Eucharist without
the recognition of the great gift it is and
the gift of the priest and
the gift of the Church.
He suffered during the bitter passion for those
who would sin and hate Him, reject Him —
hurt each other and
He took all their sins on Himself and He died
for our sins so we could share in His life.
Today the priest at Mass had a little cup and he
used it to explain what "full of grace"
I used to think and even drew these pictures in my
notebook — what I though full of grace
might look like. (this is a demonstration to show full of grace,
but grace is really not like these pictures)

Messenger:A theologian would probably not like my description.
But ponder the words of the Hail Mary — I say it
and see Mary before me ——
Radiant in light
Full of light beaming from her
And I say the Hail Mary —
Hail Mary, full of grace —
It is a proclamation "full of grace"
I want it —
I want that state of being fuller and fuller of
grace, filled with His life —
I know when I go to the Eucharist He
gives me abundant grace!
When I sit before the tabernacle — lots of grace —
I went to confession every day to Fr. Carter and
when he died it seemed such a loss for
me, I would cry.
Priests would tell me — that venial sins were
forgiven at the beginning of Mass and
it seemed to play down what importance
I once put on confession for just
receiving a special grace I wanted to
help me to be holy.
I want to go to confession for grace — I am
never without sin — I am always
able to do things with less imperfections, I know
I am imperfect, but even though I am imperfect
and it seems to surface when I am interacting
with others — I continue to interact because
I can't do the work He has called me to alone —
It takes oneness, sacrifice, forgiveness, love and
dealing with my own imperfect self also.
I see the relationship between Jesus and Mary so
important to know and study — Jesus
is the Divine God and Mary the highest
human person — Jesus is a Divine person
with 2 natures, human and Divine.
The 4th Blue Book to me shows the gentleness of Mary
and Jesus, the love of the Two Hearts — Mary the most
perfect disciple of Jesus. Mary was sinless —
Fr. Carter would say — "Rita, if you could
see the beauty of your own graced soul..."
Can we comprehend the sufferings of Jesus and how
He died to give us this sharing in His life
through baptism —
Through His pierced Heart the sacramental
life of the Church was born —
The Fountain of life
I never saw the cup — but its like I could see it
full and brimming over when the priest said
I wanted to be full of grace — as permeated
with grace as I can be here below and
I am so imperfect, but so filled
with love for God and others — I want
to be saturated with His grace —
I love to say the Hail Mary and say
Hail Mary — looking up like I see her
full of grace — with such a proclamation
of the gift of Mary, our Mother —
Fr. Carter always said that to have deeper and deeper
intimacy with Christ we need a relationship
with Mary —
I believed with all my soul — the role of the Priestly Newsletter
with consecration to the Hearts of Jesus
and Mary is to take priests deeper and
deeper in their intimacy with Christ —
with the Triune God —
through Mary's Immaculate Heart —
The Litany to Mary is so awesome and
sung too — where we honor Mary as
Mother, Virgin, Queen
Mary is a great gift to sinful man —
The spotless Virgin —
The Immaculate Mother —
I see in the title
"FULL OF GRACE" a burning in my heart
The title "singular vessel" —
I see as a door of deeper intimacy
to the Trinity —
Father, Son and Holy Spirit
— SINGULAR VESSEL —
God the Father loves Mary so much and
God the Father wants us to honor her and
God the Father wants us to recognize the gift
Mary is to us human creatures.

Messenger:I love the Litany to Mary —
I like the beginning
Lord, have mercy on us. Christ, have mercy on us.
Lord, have mercy on us. Christ, hear us. Christ, graciously hear us.
God, the Father of heaven, have mercy on us.
God, the Son, Redeemer of the world, have mercy on us.
God, the Holy Spirit, have mercy on us.
Holy Trinity, one God, have mercy on us. (from the Litany)
Then we sing the Litany a lot
and we start singing here —
It is so beautiful
Holy Mary ...
Holy Mother of God (isn't that awesome —
such dignity for the
human race —
I love to say Mother of God
with such devotion and
Holy Virgin of Virgins — espoused to the Holy Spirit
And the Word was made Flesh —
I love it!! — God is so good to us
Sing the Litany to Mary with all your heart
