November 15th Holy Spirit Novena
The Novena Rosary
Prayer for Grace for our Country
Dear Father united to Jesus in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, the Sacrifice of Calvary sacramentally made present, celebrated around the world, in the Holy Spirit. We offer up all we do united to the Mass. We unite in one mind and one heart as members of the mystical body of Christ, with Christ our head in the pure and holy Hearts of Jesus and Mary, through the powerful intercession of Mary with all the angels and saints and souls in purgatory, and we beg for the saving grace, for our country, the United States. Please help us. We further pray for unity to always do the will of God in love. We spread the Blood of Jesus on the leaders and people of the United States and cast the devil into hell. We consecrate our country to the Sacred Heart and Immaculate Heart and all our dioceses, and beg for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit. God help us. We pray for our families, the priests, the Church and the world. In the Name of Jesus please hear us, we pray. We pray for our president and leaders. We pray that we are united as one nation under God to work together in love as God wants.

Jesus: My beloved I speak to you –
I love you so much and I give you these
gifts that you will deliver My message to
the world. The message is the message of
love and of truth.
The retreat was given as the first message
indicated as all My retreats given to you
to draw the souls closer into a deeper intimate
union with Me – deeper and deeper interior life,
life rooted in God –
Each soul has a special calling from the
heavenly Father –
a plan for your life –
You see the plan the Father showed you –
John 3: 16
For this is how God loved the world:
he gave his only Son,
so that everyone who believes in him
may not perish
but may have eternal life.
Jesus: The focus of this retreat was growing in greater
intimacy with God –
of being with God in greater union –
The focus was dying to those ways that are
You have a free will to trust God and
be trustworthy in your duty called by
God for the building of My Kingdom –
The Father created you with a unique plan
to serve and love Him and thereby in
your vocation attain your eternal salvation.
You have a choice to choose the truth and
to live by the truths I give you or
listen and live by the untrustworthy,
deceptive ways of the devil.
Heaven is a reward promised to those
who loved and served the Lord. You are
called by God to be obedient to His
rules for your lives. I showed you
I obeyed My Father's will to My death on
See the plan of the Father in My life –
Give your mind and your heart to God –
To know Me and My ways is to have
joy and love in your heart –
You are to seek the light and be faithful
in your vocation according to the
heavenly Father's Plan for your
You are to be committed to your vocation
and in that commitment serve God with
love and fervor and obedience –
You are to be eager to give the heavenly Father
what He wants of you – to do your duty
in love of God – willingly and without
argument and challenges to those
over you –
I spent time with My Father – I showed
you My life – The Father and I are
You are the child of the heavenly Father –
a child is obedient or they should be
to their parents –
Likewise you are to give your will and
your life to the Plan of the heavenly
Father – Obedience –

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.
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.
“Nothing is more practical than finding God, that is, than falling in a love in a quite absolute, final way. What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination will affect everything. It will decide what will get you out of bed in the mornings, what you will do with your evenings, how you spend your weekends, what you read, who you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude. Fall in love, stay in love, and it will decide everything.”
Jesus: You are called to live a life of virtue –
of faithfulness, trust, true to your
word, living in hope of eternal
salvation for yourself in your every action
and hope for your brothers you love
with a soft and gentle heart helping
them to get to heaven –
But most of all you are to love – to
give – to communicate in relationships
with God and those especially God has
put in your lives –
R. Today Mary gave me a message –
She called for reparation and conversion
at Fatima and also this day.

Song: I Am a God of Justice
John 14: 1-7
Do not let your hearts be troubled.
You trust in God, trust also in me.
In my Father’s house
there are many places to live in;
otherwise I would have told you.
I am going now to prepare a place for you,
and after I have gone
and prepared you a place,
I shall return to take you to myself,
so that you may be with me
where I am.
You know the way
to the place where I am going.
Thomas said, ‘Lord, we do not know where you are going, so how can we know the way?’ Jesus said:
I am the Way; I am Truth and Life.
No one can come to the Father
except through me.
If you know me,
you will know my Father too.
From this moment you know him
and have seen him.
John 14: 11-13
You must believe me when I say
that I am in the Father
and the Father is in me;
or at least believe it
on the evidence of these works.
In all truth I tell you,
whoever believes in me
will perform the same works
as I do myself,
and will perform even greater works,
because I am going to the Father.
Whatever you ask in my name
I will do,
so that the Father may be glorified
in the Son.
for my thoughts are not your thoughts
and your ways are not my ways,
From a Lenten Homily, March 24, 2000
Live in the Moment
Today’s Gospel in its story certainly points ahead to Jesus in His Passion and death. And as we read passages such as this during the Lenten season, we are reminded once again that the Church in her Liturgy of the Word gives us an opportunity to undergo a purification, an ever deepening cleansing of ourselves so that we may be a more fit instrument for receiving the great graces which are to be given to us at the time of the Resurrection memorial on Easter. And so all in all, Lent is a time of purification to prepare us for ever-greater gifts of the Lord. It’s a time of self-discipline, a time to renew our efforts to be self-disciplined in the service of the Lord. Self-discipline is an aspect of purification. And I suggest that one of the most difficult acts of self-discipline in the spiritual journey is to concentrate on the present moment. We have a very strong tendency to disregard the importance of the present moment by focusing in a wrong way on the past or in a wrong way on the future. There are proper occasions for thinking of the past and the future. For example, we have to learn from the past and we have to prepare for the future, but our great emphasis has to be upon the present. There is a Latin axiom which says, age quod agis, age quod agis, which means: do what you are doing, concentrate on the present. And of course we are familiar with that term in the history of spirituality: the sacrament of the present moment. And so the discipline of Lent certainly encourages us to include in a deeper self-discipline a greater determination to get as much as we can out of the present moment. People with a terminal illness have an opportunity as they prepare for death for increased prayer, contrition, love of God. However, some are taken very, very quickly. But for those who have the opportunity of knowing with some certainty the time of their death, I’m sure as they look back on their lives, they are saddened by the many times they did not use time and opportunities for the service of the Lord properly, and are overjoyed at those times in which they did use the present opportunity properly. A great means we have of living in the present properly is a greater focus upon our Lord. For if I have that awareness of the fact I am united with Jesus here and now, why should I be concerned so much about the future or the past? Yes, a great help in living in the present and deriving all the good we can from it for ourselves and others is an ever greater focus upon Jesus, because the more I focus upon Jesus and the more I live with Him in the present moment, the more I am satisfied with the present moment. And so let us in our Lenten activity resolve to grow in that self-discipline - which is very difficult at times - to really live in the presence with the fullness of our being as much as is possible, with the help of God’s grace. Now is the day of salvation. Now is the day of salvation.

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.

Father Carter's Homily
February 18, 2000
Well, what should I say to you. It comes to my heart that I should start off telling you about the Holy Family’s house, the little home they lived in, in Nazareth which is now situated/surrounded by a Basilica Church in Loreto, Italy. And I had the privilege of visiting that shrine. How did their house get there—their little home all the way from Nazareth to Loreto, Italy? There’re different theories on it. One which seems very plausible to me is that during one of the crusades, when the crusaders were in the Holy Land, they had great reason to fear that the home of the Holy Family, the little house would be destroyed by the enemies of Christianity. So they dismantled it and brought it back by ship and then it was reassembled there at Loreto. And there is scientific proof to back this up, for instance they say that the stone out of which the Holy Family home/house was built is that which is used in the Holy Land and it’s not indigenous at all to Italy. So I really do believe that is the house where Jesus and Mary lived at Nazareth. And one of the first things that strikes you about it is how tiny it is—very, very small—one more indication that Our Lord did not need the trappings of this earth, wealth and palatial surroundings and so forth to prove to show His greatness. He was and is great simply because what He is in Himself, who He is. And we get the same lesson, that’s one of the lessons which comes out of His birth at Bethlehem; the kings of this earth come into this world with great palatial showings and all the fanfare which surrounds the life of royalty and yet the King of kings comes in this world in the simplest surroundings. Again He teaches us many lessons from this, one of them certainly is where does true greatness lie. It doesn’t lie in the things which are outside of you, the things which surround you, it lies within your very depths.
I think all of you here at China give a great witness to life of Jesus, Mary and Joseph at Nazareth and to the birthplace of Jesus in Bethlehem. Your life is so simple. It is so hidden and yet like the life of Jesus at Nazareth, it is meant to be redemptive. His life certainly was redemptive those first 33 years of His existence. And I think I said in a homily to you some months ago, that if we had it to plan we certainly would have arranged, I’m sure all of us, Jesus’ life here on earth differently. I don’t think in the depths of our heart if we’re honest with ourselves, if the Father says, “you map out the way you think Jesus, My Son, should live here below in the time allotted,” who of us, who of us would have had Him hidden away for 10/11ths of that mortal life span. We would have given much more time to His public life. And here Jesus under the Father teaches us a great lesson—that we share in His redemptive efforts proportionate to the depth of our love and as that life of love is supported by faith and hope so Jesus takes the most humble places and He takes the most simple living people and He uses those simple places and those simple people to accomplish great things. So glory in your existence here at China, in its hiddenness and ask for the faith to realize more and more the great good you are doing for the Movement and the Church and the world.
There are so many lives of the saints which are at witness to this hidden life of Jesus. And the one that usually comes first to my mind is that of St. Therese of Lisieux, who lived that very, very very hidden life in the cloistered convent at Lisieux and only for nine short years. She entered, as I’m sure you know it, with special dispensation from the pope. She entered at 15 and died at 24. And the good she accomplished in those nine years at Carmel, that was already achieved before she was canonized and people came to know about her great life of holiness. But during those nine short years at Carmel she was doing so so so much to help in the salvation of souls. And her life was so ordinary, so much so in its external framework, so much so that I think it’s, if I remember correctly, her sisters—the nuns with whom she lived with in the Carmelite convent there were surprised when the her cause for beatification was introduced. And why was her life so great—because she did the simplest things, everything with the great depth of faith and hope and love, those gifts which the Holy Spirit showered her with in tremendous depth.
And so your life here at China is in such great imitation of Jesus, Mary and Joseph at Nazareth and such great saints as St. Therese of Lisieux, those saints who lived such a hidden existence. And so first of all I thank you for persevering in this life. I think I have some more than ordinary insight into the greatness you are contributing towards the Movement and the Church and the world. So I thank you very profusely and I also highly encourage you to persevere in this life and to pray for the grace to get a deepened insight into just how great your life is here at China for the cause of Christ.
God’s ways are not our ways nor His thoughts are not our thoughts. And so contrary to the way that so much of the world thinks and even many in the Church it puts such great emphasis on those activities which attract public attention and acclaim and so forth. We know that God looks first of all to the depth of love, a love of His will, the depth of loving conformity to His will—this is how He measures the success of a life. The external framework of which that life is lived as it were as secondary, always secondary to the depth of faith, hope and love, a depth of a loving conformity of one’s will to the Father’s will in Christ, through Christ in the Spirit with a prayerful assistance of Mary our Mother. Amen.
So in summary, thank you for persevering in your life here. Secondly, pray for a deepened insight into the greatness of your life here, what it means for the Church, the Movement and the world. And thirdly, pray for a great sense of joy for the vocation, the calling Jesus has given you, at least at this time of your life, to your life here in China.
Holy Family of Nazareth pray for us.
Heavenly Father, I ask your most special blessings on your specially chosen ones here as I have just put before them and requesting them, suggesting to them to pray for an increased light of their greatness here and strength to live by that light. So I ask You Heavenly Father abundantly to give them that grace. Give them great sense of peace and joy here despite the trials they have to endure as Your Son showed us suffering, even deep suffering is not contrary to peace in the Lord. Father, let them know how special they are to You. Bless them most abundantly now and all the days of their life. Father, I put this petition before you through your Son Jesus in the Holy Spirit with the prayerful assistance of Mary our Mother. Amen.
May the Blessing of Almighty God, Father Son and Holy Spirit descend upon you and remain forever. Amen.

R. To prepare our hearts for the Christ-child.
God is so tender –
God is so sweet!
God gives Himself to us –
His generosity – His tender love –
Should we not generously give
a gift of loving Him and
our brothers to God –
When God is so generous to
us, we should willingly
obey the greatest commandment.
Matthew 22: 36-40
‘Master, which is the greatest commandment of the Law?’ Jesus said to him, ‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and the first commandment. The second resembles it: You must love your neighbour as yourself. On these two commandments hang the whole Law, and the Prophets too.’
R. God's love
Love Beyond our comprehension –
Song: God's Love –
R. How beautiful religious chosen
by God should be an
example of love and loving
relationships as witnesses
God help us to trust in You –
Let us look at the trust St. Joseph
and Mary shows us –
How about the trust of saints
the Apostles, Abraham,
Jacob, Moses, Joseph
Luke 2: 51-52
He went down with them then and came to Nazareth and lived under their authority. His mother stored up all these things in her heart. And Jesus increased in wisdom, in stature, and in favour with God and with people.
Faith and Trust
March 4, 1994 5:15 a.m.
Jesus: I ask for this faith. It will be your faith and your steadfastness in My word that lead many to faith in Me. You must learn to trust Me totally on faith. I am speaking to you, but how you are in your faith and trust in Me speaks to those around you. You have been given a great gift. You call yourself a puppet. You are not a puppet. You make light of My love for you. I love you ardently. I have chosen you for this work. This is indeed a great honor.
You make light of My intense love for you. You are not My little puppet. Do not refer to yourself as such. I love you ardently. You are My servant. You are My beloved. You are the one Whom I have chosen to give My letters to My beloved ones.
You are missing your specialness to Me. You must be aware I have chosen you to do this and I will do the work. These obstacles from those closest to you are to strengthen you. I do not allow anything that is not for your good. This is teaching you a mighty lesson. You need to be strong. The lesson will be taught with the least problems. You will face many people and with this faith and love you are developing this day is how you will operate in adversity. Operate only for love of Me. Nothing anyone says matters. Do not be attached to the glory or the persecution. Do not doubt yourself or these letters ever. I am the Lord thy God and I am talking to you. You are My beloved. You will be strengthened in every trial you undergo. You will be taught trust for it is this trust that will give you what you need to do My work.
This is My work. These are My letters. I will see to their circulation. I will do what I need to to get them out. I am God. I am mighty. I can do all things. I have the power. I call you to two things in adversity: (1) know how I love you and (2) operate only for the love of God.
You are My beloved one. I have chosen you to do this work. I will give you what you need to do it. They are My letters of love, My mighty medicine. Satan will create all he can to stop this work. You must hold tightly to those two things. I am God and I go before you to pave the way. I am not moving the obstacles you need to develop trust and faith and strength for the road ahead.
I am God, little one. I am mighty. I will accomplish great things in these messages. Do not fret, do not fume. Be about your union with Me. Remain selfless and unattached. Pray the Prayer for Union. You need to memorize the whole prayer, not just the beginning. Say it all day. This is My powerful gift to you.
I want to possess your soul and permeate your being. When you act, you do not act like yourself. You act like God and He does not act like you.
Do not deliberate. Do not evaluate. Do not listen with your heart to others when I am speaking directly to you. When I tell you something, you obey. Your anxiousness is coming from those who want to tell you differently from what I am telling you.
Listen to My words and obey Me. I am God. I will do what I need to to accomplish My task here. You are learning trust in God. You are defining your surrendering position. I want you to operate for love of Me and love of Me alone. This is the true freedom. You operate for love of Me and I am almighty. I am the powerhouse. Do you trust Me this way? I get the job done.
You are in constant union with Me and you obey everything I tell you, whether you want to or not. You do as I tell you. This is teaching you lessons you need to learn. In your trials, you are taught the mightiest lessons. You are going through an intense study about how you must stay focused entirely on Me. Your love for Me and Mine for you. I am the Almighty God. What do you have to fear? I am Jesus. I am God. I can do all things. You can do nothing without Me.
(R. I smell roses.)
Jesus: I can take your breath away and you will cease to be. I am the Lord, your God, and you shall have no gods before Me.
Note: He told Me to look in a book. The visionaries saw purgatory. I have never been told anything about hell or purgatory.
Jesus: You shall see the face of God and live. Nothing matters here if it is not rooted in God. They saw purgatory because it really exits. Souls are burning there. You must preach of My love for the sake of the souls of your brothers. Your selflessness and your love will lead many into My kingdom. Live your life for love of Me. Do all you can to lead all into heaven. Purgatory and hell are real. You must save your brothers from the fires of hell. Preach My love. I need you to do this work. Nothing matters except to save souls. Your faith here is your strength.
Note message of August 23, 1993:
"I thought of My intense love for you, that many would go to heaven because of My sufferings and I continued to the top of the hill. At the top they laid Me on the big cross and with a big hammer they nailed My hands to the cross. It was the worst yet. My hands were nailed with a big nail and a big hammer. Oh, it was unbelievable, and then, as if that weren't enough, with a big nail they nailed both of My feet.
"My mother watched in such agony.
"Oh, God, My God, why have You forsaken Me? It is finished and your salvation is won." For your love, to My death I give you My Body. My child, I shed My Blood and gave you My life that you will be with Me forever in heaven. Not a day, a month or a year, but forever with Me in Heaven.
"I am the true Bread come down from heaven. He who eats My flesh will have life forever. For the drink I give is My Blood and the food you eat is My Body. Who would lay down his life for a friend? I did, for you! I love you this much, My child. Forget about those who reject you. You have My life that I give for you and I give life eternal."
R. My life is to be lived to spread the love of Jesus, to help save souls from purgatory and hell. Jesus saves souls and takes them to heaven. His love is mighty medicine for the sick world.
I Want Both Feet Off the Ground
January 18, 1994 4:40 a.m.
R. Dear Jesus, I am ready for Your work. I love You. I am sorry I didn't get to Mass because of the snow. I love You, Jesus.
Jesus: You mustn't feel that I am displeased because you stayed home. You need to be with Me at home just as you are in church. Focus on Me and My love for you and keep making Spiritual Communions. I am Jesus. I am present. I talk, you write. I am He Whose bootstraps you are unworthy to tie. I am He Who loves you intently. If you only knew a little of My love, you would be preaching about Me from a high mountain.
You are he that wants one foot on the earth and one foot in the air. One foot will let go, but the other is not willing. I want both of your feet off the floor. That extra security you hold on to, just in case–that is what makes you worldly. I demand you let go entirely. You will then be free in My love. You will soar! As long as you think you are doing any of it yourself you stop yourself from the total freedom of letting go.
So here you are and I am telling you in your heart to do something and you decide to ask someone else, or you procrastinate, or you want proof. I don't give proof! The beauty of total surrender is to have no proof and total trust in Him Who truly loves you! "Well, Lord, I know you are telling me this." Then, do it child! Let go! Feel the freedom of flying. You are totally free. I am running the balloons. You, child, let go. You totally surrendered to Me and at first you were afraid, but here you are flying and it is such freedom! Take in the sights. Be lighted on your way. Do you trust Me like that? If you don't, you are still in control.
The will of The Father I make clear to you. You want that security the world says you should have. The world is not secure. It is built on a sinking ship. It may look secure, but in one instant your ship could sink and if you are counting on yourself, what will you do?
I sail your balloon to heights you never dreamed possible. Let go. I run the balloon. There may be a little wind, but the freedom of sailing, of knowing you will never lose your way because Jesus is holding you up, what power Jesus has over all and He holds you up! If you go out on a limb for Him, He supports the limb. "Scary," you say? "Freedom," I say! When you trust your interior promptings this much, when you know God is this close that you will do whatever He calls you to, despite the world, that is freedom. You are My special messengers. The world is teaching some awfully sick messages. People are getting literally sick. Become selfless, let Me possess you so I can do what I need to through you.
The world wants you to have security, insurance, jobs that they consider safe. "Be sure you have all these things to be sure." Sure of what? That in one minute there can be an earthquake and it all is destroyed? You are not sure! I have all the power. You are so silly to think you are sure of anything in this world.
There is only one thing you can be sure of: I am Jesus, Son of the Living God. Put your trust in Me and then you are sure. You may not receive a reward in this world, but you, for sure, will receive a golden reward in the next.
Let go, My children. Seek after only the things of God. Do not store up earthly treasures that wither and fade. Store up heavenly treasures that never die.
Let go, My children. I am waiting for you to let go with both of your feet. Jump into the arms of Him Who saves you. You let go, I catch you. God is there to hold you up lest you stumble and lose your way.
You walk the road to My love. It does not go down the solid roads the world has built. It is a road suspended in the sky. To know Me is to let go. Get off that road that appears to the world as solid. You know an earthquake can split that road in half. Walk My road with Me. That may mean the road seems to be missing at times. But you do not have your ducks in a row. Minute by minute you follow a road supported by Me. What freedom! To trust in Me, to do My work with support from Me is so free, but so uncertain for your earthly minds.
I tell you in your hearts. The world wouldn't even hear that which becomes to you a command to obedience. I tell you to do such things. The more I possess your soul, the more it becomes Me acting out of you. You know you are doing things you would not have done before.
This is Me. When you beg Me to possess your soul, you let go and I take over. You don't need security here. You only need the inner promptings and the trust in your heart that God has spoken and you follow His command.
How can I minister to this sick world if you choose to keep one foot on what the world calls "solid ground"? I want to possess you. I want to operate from your very being. I want to be in constant communion with you. I want you to hear the pipeline to Me every second you breathe. You will do this when you let go. I need to have full reign to operate from you as I see fit. Believe Me, I will not be doing what you would do.
When you see yourself moving selflessly ahead, doing My work, no questions asked, when you are listening to your information from within instead of from without, then your pipeline is open and working. Your answers are in your heart. You search for your answers in a senseless world, while you cover up the answers in your heart. Let Me possess you. Be selfless, be unattached. Operate as I am telling you in your heart.
"But," you say, "Oh, how do you test it?" That is the world. The more you know Me, you do not even think. It is I Who operate you. You do not even deliberate. I just work through you and you see that what you did was a vital move in My plan. But you did not even deliberate much. You were pushed in that direction and you knew you had to do it.
Child, listen to your heart. I am calling you to quiet union with Me. Silence with Me. Let Me change you and make you open. Say the Prayer for Union with Jesus, then let go and let Me do My work. I need your total submission. Your security is not found in thinking. It is found in your heart, in being so attached to Me that it is I Who live and act from your soul.
I operate you like a little windup doll. You don't worry and fret. You just go. You ask no questions. You are selfless and unattached and what you achieve is the work of the Son of Man.
I am Jesus. I am God. I am He Who wants to possess you and use you. When I do something, I do not make mistakes. Quit trying to do it yourself. Let Me operate you. Let Me do it all. Get both feet off the ground and say, "Lord, Lord, I give you My all. You use me, You run me, You possess me. I am Yours." Die to yourself and all the things of the world. You are he whom I want to possess and use to do My work. If you continue to do it your way, it is your doing a so-so job. Let go and let Me do My work as I want it done!
Don't ask questions. Don't jump back to the ground and say, "Oh, but it got scary out there with nothing under my feet. I just wanted to stand on solid ground." My ground is all that you must walk. You do not have a choice. My life in you is like being suspended in midair. It only feels good when you have decided that you will let go, that you know in your heart that trusting in Me is the only way. What freedom, to sail the sky and never ever look for security!
This is life in Me. You can't go to the world. Life with Me is like this. Life in the world is sick. You can't go there. You don't let go so you are not fully here. So, there is discontent in your heart. One foot on, one foot off. Surrender, My child. Let go with both feet and don't question! I will lift you up and lead you on your way. I need you to do My work in this world. If you become selfless and let Me possess you, you will operate just as I want you to because I will be doing the work.
Don't look for security! Pray constantly. I am as close as your breath. I am He Who powers you. You will not falter for I will catch you on your way. Your only job is to let go and trust. Know I am truly here and you are never abandoned. I love you so. You are doing My work with all your heart and I am powering your heart. Let go. Living in Me is not the security that the world preaches. It is like being in midair and knowing I am by your side and will catch you. If you feel your life is like this, being in midair, you are doing a great job. But it is not you at all. It is I Who sustain you. It is I Who act from you. You are My precious ones. You, I love to My death! Trust Me. I died for you. I am your beautiful Jesus. I am your spouse. I am ever by your side and I love you with a heart on fire for love of you. Surrender. Let go and you will be free in the Lord!
R. Alleluia. And He made them His workers and they acted as He did in them and the world knew His love in mighty proportion through those who chose to serve the Lord. Alleluia. Our hearts are lifted to such heights in Him. His ways are secure!

I Guard Your Way (excerpt)
April 19, 1994 5:00a.m.
Jesus: ...Be not troubled, sweet one, I am your Savior. I allow with love all that happens to you. I do not hand you a snake. I only give according to your needs. I am your Jesus, your Beloved One. Do not be anxious for anything. Do not fret or fume. I am the same Jesus Who died for love of you, and would die for you this very day. I am the Savior of this world. I go with you wherever you go. I come and you are set free. Freedom is complete trust in Me. Do you trust Me or do you think you trust Me? Let go and put your life and that of your beloved ones in the hands of Jesus Christ.
See Me, My child, bloodied, bruised and beaten for love of you. Do you think I would come to earth with such love for you and then not guard you? I guard you as a treasure. I treasure you and your life. Your life will be with Me in heaven. Do not worry for I am God and I am guarding you, this very day. Love Me, keep My commandments, love one another.. that is all I ask.end of excerpt
Excerpts from May 7, 1994 - Where You Walk I Walk with You
Jesus says: Trust is a staircase that leads to holiness...
Trust in Me...
Trust and let go
God Does Not Operate as Humans Operate
May 8, 1994
R. God does not operate on your schedule. You ring, you get an answer. God's way is the way of faith. He operates in the inner promptings of your heart. He gives you His answers here.
How do you develop faith and trust when you expect God to give you answers like humans? Your faith and trust in God is what develops over time. I cannot demand that God give me an answer when I want one. Do I think I can control God too?
God does not work this way. If I do not develop faith and trust, what will I do when things are so bad? Do I think He will constantly appear and reassure me? He does not work this way with me or most of the world.end of msg
Excerpt from May 9, 1994 5:00am - Brings Your Cares to the Foot of the Cross
Jesus: Trust at every moment.
Trust in Me and let Me fill your
heart with My peace and My love.
Help Me, Lord, to Do As I Ought (excerpt)
May 16, 1994
Jesus: You, My child, are guarded by My hand when you learn to let go and do as I ask. You must realize I am forever with you and you do not need to worry. Trust in Me, trust in Me, trust in Me! I am Jesus Christ. I am the Son of God. Do not worry or fume or fret. Be ever attentive to My presence with you. Let go, sweet one, and let Me get close to you.
Satan is tormenting you. Pray for trust and give it all up. I love you with such love. Do not worry ever. I am by your side in your darkest hours. Trust, child. You are so far from trusting Me!end of excerpt

I Guard Your Way (excerpt)
April 19, 1994 5:00a.m.
Jesus:Love is for you, My beloved. I give it freely. Love Me and love one another. Do not fret, I am here. In all adversity, remain fixed in My love and trust in My ways. I am ever by your side. I never slumber or sleep. I guard you, My beloved ones, I guard you.
Trust Me. A mighty lesson in trust you will receive. Let go and do not focus on anything but My love for you. I go by your side. The very hairs of your head are numbered. Sit tight constantly and pray to Him Who has all the power. I will be with you wherever you go. Do not ever lose your peace for I sustain you. This will strengthen your trust in Me. Tell your children to trust in Me and My ways. There is nothing to fear for I go with you. My hand is in everything you experience. Accept all things as coming from Him Who loves you dearly and grow in your relationship with Me.
I am God. Be calm. Do not be rattled by anything. I am there in your midst and I guard you, My beloved ones. I guard you personally.end of excerpt

Guiding Light — The Word Alive in Our Hearts. — Cycle B for 2017/2018
Guiding Light — The Soul Who Could. — Cycle A for 2016/2017
Guiding Light homily series — Reflect on the Word — Cycle B The Word leaves an impression on our souls. In my thoughts and reflections are born a more tangible understanding of these eternal concepts presented in the Gospels and the readings. Anyone can read a sentence, but not anyone can absorb it's true meaning. Truth, in this day and age, is almost a matter of opinion or individual entitlement. We believe that Christ's truth is our Roman Catholic Church. We, as priests, champion it's teachings; we are ambassadors for the Pope and Christ to those faces looking at us. We are the light by which our congregation reads to reflect upon real truth and we do it hand in hand. $15
Guiding Light homily series — Steadfast to the Son — Cycle A The sunflower is a great example of how we should be steadfastly guided by light. What a powerful thought that this exceptional plant is not stuck in one pose day in and day out, yet adaptable and magnetized to the sun. We feel the same about our Son. Our heads turns to face Christ as each day presents its challenges to find light. We join together like plants in a field and soak up the Son through the pulpit. We are a warm circle of strength using the wind of our breath to carry our priests' words, Christ's words, to new rich soil. $15
Guiding Light — Focusing on the Word — Cycle B At times we may feel that our path to Christ is a bit "out of focus". Like the disciples in the Book of Mark, this ordinary life clouds our vision of Christ's Divinity. We may doubt the practicality or possibility of applying His teachings and example to our modern life. Cycle B's homilies are a "guiding light" to help us realize Jesus' Messianic greatness and His promise of better things to come. $15
Guiding Light — Feed My Soul — Cycle C In a world rapidly advancing and encouraging personal gain, we are faced with modern problems. There is a challenge to find time in our busy schedules for Sunday Mass or a family meal. We are able to research, shop, bank and even work without hearing one human voice. It is no wonder that we may often feel disconnected and famished at our week's end. In Fr. Joe's third book of homilies from Cycle C, we are reminded of the charity that Christ intended us to show each other. We have a calling to turn the other cheek and be the Good Samaritan to others. We are rewarded with the Father's kingdom and love when we are not worthy. We are not left alone or hungry. $15

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
