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.

                R. In China we have the exposed Eucharist
                24 hours a day. This is the greatest
                gift we are given, Jesus, truly present
                in His Divinity and humanity in the
                Eucharist.

                    The Mass is the sacrifice of Calvary
                sacramentally made present.

                Jesus: I shed My Blood for your sins –

                    The gift I give is Myself –
                    So you can be one with Me –

                    So I enter your body and you
                        put on Christ –

                    The Paschal Banquet –

                    I give Myself for unity and love –

                    I fill the soul with My presence,
                        My love and My grace –

                R. Through out salvation history we
                    see sacrifice –
                    people offering sacrifice to
                    their gods –

                God gives us the Mass – the
                    Sacrifice of Calvary
                    sacramentally made
                    present –

                So much love is given in the
                    Mass –
                    Is it not in giving that we
                        receive –

                    Is it not in unity in Communion
                        that Jesus comes to us
                        Body, Blood, Soul
                        and Divinity –

                Is not the Mass, the Banquet
                    of Love where by we long
                    to be united to Him in
                    such intimate union –

                God is Divine –

                God is Almighty –

                Jesus, the Son of God, gives us Himself
                    in the Mass

                "This is my body . . .
                    This is My Blood –"

                I give you My Word in the Mass –

 

Hebrews 4: 12

The word of God is something alive and active: it cuts more incisively than any two–edged sword: it can seek out the place where soul is divided from spirit, or joints from marrow; it can pass judgement on secret emotions and thoughts.

 

                R. Jesus is the Way, the truth
                    and the life –

                Jesus: I give you Myself sweet one in the
                    Eucharist because I love you
                    so much and want unity with
                    you –

                There are angels at Mass surrounding
                    the altar –

 

                Jesus: Grace and Mercy is outpoured –

                This is My Gift of Love –

                    Myself –

 

From the Mass Book

January 2, 1997

    "In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, Amen."

    "The grace of Our Lord, Jesus Christ, and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all."

    God pours out His grace in this Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. It is the greatest gift when God gives Himself to us.

    We share with God His life, given to us abundantly in the Mass.

    He gives Himself to us and we give ourselves to Him. The great love affair between God and man: His Holy Mass.

    The priest is another Christ to us. It is Christ present, through the priest, celebrating the Mass. We must see Christ in the priest, see Him celebrate the Mass, see His beautiful brown hair, His gentle face, see Him, our Savior. This Jesus Christ that came was born an infant and gave Himself to His death on the cross that we would share His life. See Him now in the Mass, giving Himself in the greatest gift of all. He gives us His divine love and His divine life.

    Oh, we thank You for Your life. We know Jesus died and rose and gave us a sharing in His holy life. His life is now abundantly poured, as a fountain to us, especially in the Mass.

    Then we hear His word. Let the word of God penetrate our being. Let us feel this Living Word of God. As a two-edged sword, it comes forth with such conviction and love and it penetrates the souls of the faithful with such love. It is food indeed, food for our soul.

    He is the Good Shepherd. He speaks to us. He gives us all we want. "Yahweh is my shepherd, I lack nothing." (Ps. 23:1)

    He gives us green pastures, and His water pours out and refreshes us. He outpours His grace as a fountain to feed us with His life.

    He is a just God, good and kind, all loving, for He is Love. We want for nothing for He outpours His love and His life to us in the Mass. We feast on His Body and Blood and are fed with His Word. We become one in Him and He shares Himself with us.

    It is through the Mass celebrated by the hands of a holy priest that we will experience the Mass the way Christ intends. These writings are insights which hopefully will help lead you to the spring of life-giving water, the fountain of love and life He outpours in the Mass.

    There will be a new earth when men will see with the light of seven suns. They will know God. A people walking in darkness will see a great light. They will no longer be blind, they will be enlightened, they will love God with the greatest love in the Mass. They will feast on His Body and Blood and will be united as one body in His holy Church through His life given to us in the Eucharist.

    We will drink copiously from the fountain of grace which He pours out in the Mass. We will be filled with His love, absorbed with the love of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit and feasting on His divine life.

    We see with the vision of God. We partake in such a union with God. We see with the light the Spirit gives to us. The priest celebrates the Mass and we know God with such an intense knowing in this union. We are saturated with His life flowing from the hands of His consecrated priest.

    And I look at Him, the priest, and I see Jesus there. I see Him giving Himself to me. I see the new and Holy City. I see with such clarity the great gift that God gives to us in the Mass!

    We learn how to love in the Mass, for we unite to God. He gives us such an intimate sharing in His divine love that we carry His love out to the world. In this union we know His loving to an intense degree and we carry this love out to others. We share in an intense way in His divine act of loving. He, Who is love, gives Himself to us and we are absorbed in His love and we know intensely how God loves. We are filled with love for God and for each other, for, in the oneness He is loving through us. He gives us lights into His loving capacity and we know His loving power in an intensity we did not know before.

    We then pray. We offer up our intentions for this Mass. It is now we who intercede to Him to outpour His grace on us and help us with these intentions.

    We pray for this reign of peace when the Sacred Heart of Jesus will reign and the Immaculate Heart of Mary will triumph and men will fervently love and adore God with burning love. We pray for all souls and the Church and we beg for His help, His love, His grace.

    We offer ourselves as a sacrifice. We offer the bread that will become the bread of life.

    The priest mixes the water and the wine and we realize how His Divinity mixes with our humanity.

    We offer the wine that will become our spiritual drink-His blood.

    I give myself to Him and I beg to be cleansed of my sins with the washing of the hands.

    "May the Lord accept the sacrifice at your hands for the praise and glory of His name, for our good and the good of all His Church."

    We ask Him to accept the gifts we want to give Him, we give Him thanks, we lift up our hearts in thanks and praise and we sing out:

    "Holy, Holy God, of power and might…" we sing Him praise and thank Him-oh, God we love Thee so much."

    My heart is so filled with such awe. I cry because I love Him so much.

    Every word in the Mass, I love. The priest consecrates the host and changes it into the Body and Blood of Christ.

    Oh, it makes me cry for I am so struck with awe at what happens at the Consecration. I unite in the oneness with the priest, with Christ and with all present, with heaven and earth. I am one in that moment, united in the sacrifice of Christ giving Himself to the Father.

    This is the moment when I unite in such oneness with Christ in the purity of Mary's heart. I give myself as a sacrifice. I offer myself to the Father.

    The Father looks down and He sees us united to His Son's Sacrifice. It is in this oneness that His grace is outpoured on us, that we die to that which is not like Him and that the Holy Spirit works in the heart of Mary and fills us with His life.

    I am in ecstasy as I realize more and more the great gift of love that God gives us in His holy Mass. I am taken to such heights, being wrapped in the presence of God. It is rapture, this Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.

    It is a great gift, experiencing this intense presence of the Almighty God: Through Him, With Him, and In Him.

    We pray to the Father the prayer as Jesus taught us and beg, "thy Kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven."

    We pray: "For the Kingdom, the power and the glory are yours, now and forever."

    We beg for peace in our hearts. We share this peace with one another. Then we beg of the Lamb of God. I want to get down to the ground and beg for His grace, mercy and forgiveness for our sins.

    Please, God, I see us as a sinful people. I want the grace and mercy to flow abundantly.

    He raises the Host and says: "This is the Lamb of God Who takes away the sins of the world, happy are those who are called to His supper."

    We respond: "Lord, I am not worthy to receive you, but only say the word and I shall be healed."

    I receive the Almighty God in Communion. All I want is Him. Oh, God, I want you, I adore you, I worship you, I love you.

    Oh, for this moment when God gives Himself to me. Oh, God, words do not express this time-this intense presence of You within my being. Oh, sweet Savior, I love You!

    You share Yourself so intimately with me. You imprint on my soul a knowing of Your Divine Being that is so intimate in this Communion when You give Yourself to me.

    Oh, let our hearts be open to His grace that we may know this great gift more, that we will partake more fully in this greatest act of love with Divinity.

    He shares Himself with us, the Almighty God, in such oneness. This is the greatest way to bind us with each other, to unite with each other in the Mass and Communion.

    And so I sing the love of God, the love of His Mass. I beg you to pray for the grace that He can teach you in these writings about His most intimate love affair with man, the gift of Himself-the gift He gives us in the Mass.

    The Holy Sacrifice, the sacrifice of Calvary, sacramentally-made-present in the Mass when He gives Himself to us with the greatest love!

    And what does He ask in return? He asks that we love one another, that we give Him the glory, the thanksgiving, the adoration that is His due as the Almighty God.

    He sends us forth with His blessing to share His most intimate love with all. We go forth as other Christs in the world. For He is alive this day and He lives in us and He gives His love to others through us. We act as channels of His life to one another.

    The Mass is the richest source of His life. His life flows through the body, the Church, especially through the Sacraments and the Mass.

    Oh Jesus, from the fountain of life that pours forth from Your pierced Heart, give us holy priests whose hearts are consecrated to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary to celebrate the Mass-that there is such oneness between the priest and Christ that His grace will flow copiously.

    We thirst for the fountain of life pouring forth from the pierced Heart of Christ. It is His life we seek and find in the Church. It is His love we want and we experience the greatest love affair with God in the Mass.

    These books on the Mass are accounts of my intimate love affair with our Almighty God. Many experiences were enlightenments I received in the Mass.

    I strongly advise all to pray, to say the Holy Spirit Prayer, the Consecration Prayers, and the Prayer before the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, before Mass. (These prayers follow this message).

    This book is the journey into the red room, the inner chamber of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, through the gateway, the pure and Immaculate Heart of His Mother.

    It is in the Mass we give ourselves in such love to our Holy God. He gives Himself to us and we give ourselves to Him.

Matthew 26: 26-27

Now as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had said the blessing he broke it and gave it to the disciples. ‘Take it and eat,’ he said, ‘this is my body.’ Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he handed it to them saying, ‘Drink from this, all of you, for this is my blood, the blood of the covenant, poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.

 

The Our Father

    Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

  

                "I am the Bread of Life"

                Jesus: I give you Myself –

                Feed the hungry

               

 

Through Him, With Him, In Him

 

                R. Advent –
                    we think of Christ's coming into
                    the world –

                But we think of the second coming
                    of Jesus –

                We think of Jesus coming into our
                    hearts, more and more in
                    intimate love –

                Song: A Song into Jesus

                R. Come, oh Come, Emmanuel –

                Sing: Proclaim the Joyful Message

                Sing: Justice shall flourish in his time,
                    and fullness of peace forever

                Advent is a time to prepare –
                    to grow in holiness –
                    to have motives of action for God's
                        glory –
                    to pray for God's grace –
                    to focus on God's love for us –
                    to meditate on our redemption
                    and eternal happiness in heaven –

                God is love and in Him is no darkness –

                He served His Father –
                    doing His will to His death on the
                    cross –

                God gives us hope –

                Longing joy in Advent preparation
                    to make our heart a little
                    crib of love for Jesus at Christmas.

                Silent Night –

                We walk the isle in Church, not with
                    trumpets blare, but with
                    peace and quiet and the Son of God,
                    comes to us in the Eucharist –

                    Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity –
                God wants us to prepare our hearts –

                We need hearts fortified by greater grace
                    and God living in our hearts –

                Love – Life in Him – Life in the Holy Spirit –

                This is the Good News –

                God dwelling in us, is joy, unity and love.

 

Matthew 7:21

‘It is not anyone who says to me, "Lord, Lord," who will enter the kingdom of Heaven, but the person who does the will of my Father in heaven.

 

                R. Honesty – let us live holy, honest
                    lives, rooted in God and
                    happiness will reign in our
                    hearts and His light will
                    light our path.

                For God is great, indeed,
                    and He loves us so much.

                God help this communion today to
                    have greater hearts of unity
                    and love and prepare us
                    for the eternal banquet of
                    heaven –

                Happiness is in God –

                God wants to fill us more and more
                    abundantly, may we never turn
                    our backs to this opportunity
                    for greater life in Him –

                God wants us eternally in heaven
                    with Him –

                    Our lives are directed to this
                    goal –
                    happiness, love and unity in
                    the beatific vision in heaven –

                God, I love You –

                Song: I Love You Jesus!


 

                R. The more we are filled by God, the more
                beautiful we become. Mary is so beautiful
                she is full of grace.

                    Hail Mary full of grace, the Lord is
                with you, blessed are you 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 death. Amen.

                    Satan is full of pride – He tells people
                after they sin – you should be angry –
                you never do any wrong, blame your sinful
                ways on others victimizing you.

                    Yes – it's all twisted – Satan is a
                deceiver, a liar. Satan wants souls
                to do his dirty work. He doesn't come
                in red tights – people serve satan with
                pride and anger, jealousy and the other
                deadly sins –

                    Do you know a mother's love – Even when
                a child is sinful, a mother may pray for
                them and love them "harder."

                    When one sins, God still loves that
                person, so very much, and it offends
                God so much to be treated with ingratitude
                and to sin hatefully against a loving
                God, who loves us so much. Jesus died
                for our sins!

                God the Father sent His Son. How do
                you think a person offends God by
                serving satan and showing pride
                and mistrust to God who is love and loves
                us and created us in His image and likeness.

                    God is Divine – how pompous a man
                who trusts himself and satan and treats
                God so wrongfully – God is a Supreme Being.
                Isn't it an awful offense to treat God
                Almighty with such disrespect and
                dishonor, when He is Divine – So
                above us!

                    So one who sins can withdraw
                from the Lord and continue in
                more rebellion and sin – how
                the first offense against God becomes
                a fall of hatred continuing more
                offenses against God, rather than
                sorrow for sin.

                    How can a person know Jesus if they
                do not read the Gospel from their heart
                and apply the Word to their lives – to
                living as God is teaching us in His Word.
                We discount the help God is giving
                in His Word when we don't apply
                His Word to our lives.

                Offending God is not smart

                We were created to know, love and
                serve God.

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.

 

“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.”
                                                                                                                                Pedro Arrupe

 

 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.

 

                R. Our love for God is like a little
                child who loves their Father –

 

Matthew 11: 25

At that time Jesus exclaimed, 'I bless you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, for hiding these things from the learned and the clever and revealing them to little children.

 

                "Thy will be done on earth, as
                    it is in heaven"

 

2 Corinthians 13:  5

    Put yourselves to the test to make sure you are in the faith. Examine yourselves. Do you not recognise yourselves as people in whom Jesus Christ is present?—unless, that is, you fail the test.

 

  Galatians 3: 27

since every one of you that has been baptised has been clothed in Christ.

 

Ephesians 3: 17

so that Christ may live in your hearts through faith, and then, planted in love and built on love,

   

 

Picture of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

Cling to Me

May 13, 1993 

Jesus: My dear child, if you stay close to Me, then I live in you and you live in Me. I am He Who created you and I love you with such an intensity that you will never know. My words are your truth. You must abide in My heart in all things. There is no room for doubt. My ways are steadfast, direct, and without error.

    You must stay rooted in Me to ward off the power of the evil one. His grip is paralyzing and crippling. His power is stronger every day.

    When you live in Me, I am in your heart and he has no power over Me. I am your God. I am your true lover. I want to protect you. I want to guard you from this force. Stay rooted firmly in Me and he will have no power.

    I am He Who comforts you. My hand is upon you. Hold tight to Me, My child. My eyes are fixed right on you. You are My most precious child. I love you as no other can. My arms are about you. My tenderness surrounds you. My love is in your heart. You go not alone. I walk with you.

    I share every aspect of your life with you. Cling to Me, feel My presence. It is warm and secure within your chest. There is no room for fear, for I cast out fear and bring you comfort and joy.

A Prayer for Intimacy with the Lamb, the Bridegroom of the Soul

     Oh Lamb of God, Who take away the sins of the world, come and act on my soul most intimately. I surrender myself, as I ask for the grace to let go, to just be as I exist in You and You act most intimately on my soul. You are the Initiator. I am the soul waiting Your favors as You act in me. I love You. I adore You. I worship You. Come and possess my soul with Your Divine Grace, as I experience You most intimately.

 
 

        From the Priestly Newsletter Book III by Fr. Edward Carter, S.J.

The Holy Spirit And Mary

The late Archbishop Luis M. Martinez of Mexico strikingly speaks of the ongoing cooperation of Mary with the Holy Spirit regarding the reproduction of Jesus within us: "Christian life is the reproduction of Jesus in souls…

"Now, how will this mystical reproduction be brought about in souls? In the same way in which Jesus was brought into the world, for God gives a wonderful mark of unity to all His works. Divine acts have a wealth of variety because they are the work of omnipotence; nevertheless, a most perfect unity always shines forth from them because they are the fruit of wisdom; and this divine contrast of unity and variety stamps the works of God with sublime and unutterable beauty.

"In His miraculous birth, Jesus was the fruit of heaven and earth…The Holy Spirit conveyed the divine fruitfulness of the Father to Mary, and the virginal soil brought forth in an ineffable manner our most loving Savior, the divine Seed, as the prophets called Him…

"That is the way He is reproduced in souls. He is always the fruit of heaven and earth.

"Two artisans must concur in the work that is at once God’s masterpiece and humanity’s supreme product: the Holy Spirit and the most holy Virgin Mary. Two sanctifiers are necessary to souls, the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary, for they are the only ones who can reproduce Christ.

"Undoubtedly, the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary sanctify us in different ways. The first is the Sanctifier by essence; because He is God, who is infinite sanctity; because He is the personal Love that completes, so to speak, the sanctity of God, consummating His life and His unity, and it belongs to Him to communicate to souls the mystery of that sanctity. The Virgin Mary, for her part, is the co-operator, the indispensable instrument in and by God’s design. From Mary’s maternal relation to the human body of Christ is derived her relation to His Mystical Body which is being formed through all the centuries until the end of time, when it will be lifted up to the heavens, beautiful, splendid, complete, and glorious.

"These two, then, the Holy Spirit and Mary, are the indispensable artificers of Jesus, the indispensable sanctifiers of souls. Any saint in heaven can co-operate in the sanctification of a soul, but his co-operation is not necessary, not profound, not constant: while the co-operation of these two artisans of Jesus of whom we have just been speaking is so necessary that without it souls are not sanctified (and this by the actual design of Providence), and so intimate that it reaches to the very depths of our soul. For the Holy Spirit pours charity into our heart, makes a habitation of our soul, and directs our spiritual life by means of His gifts. The Virgin Mary has the efficacious influence of Mediatrix in the most profound and delicate operations of grace in our souls. And, finally, the action of the Holy Spirit and the co-operation of the most holy Virgin Mary are constant; without them, not one single character of Jesus would be traced on our souls, no virtue grow, no gift be developed, no grace increased, no bond of union with God be strengthened in the rich flowering of the spiritual life. mm

"Such is the place that the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary have in the order of sanctification. Therefore, Christian piety should put these two artisans of Christ in their true place, making devotion to them something necessary, profound, and constant." 18

18. Archbishop Luis M. Martinez, The Sanctifier, op. cit. pp. 5-7.

 

                R. The Holy Spirit purifies the soul through
                    the virtues! And then He can
                    more and more possess the soul.

 

 

 

                 Given October 29, 2016

                R. Please spread blessed holy water
                (
You can also mix Jesus and Mary water
                with your blessed Holy Water if you have it.)
                in your yard, around your house,
                in the state you live in.

                And ask God to bless your state
                Ask God to bless the United States

                Pray all prayers through the intercession of
                    Our Lady of CLEAR – WATER.

                Ask the Lady of CLEAR - WATER
                    to help with the blessed water.

                Mary has appeared to me for 22 years,
                    in Ohio and Florida.

Guiding Light - Reflect on the Word
Inspiring Homilies Covering Cycle B of the Liturgical Year (2011/2012)
$ 10.00

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 - Steadfast to the Son
Inspiring Homilies Covering Cycle A of the Liturgical Year
$ 10.00

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
Inspiring Homilies Covering Cycle B of the Liturgical Year
$ 10.00

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
Inspiring Homilies Covering Cycle C of the Liturgical Year
$ 10.00

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
