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.

If an attacker comes, a dreaded disease,
how does he fen for himself when he
is wiped out.
Strength is in unity. Unity takes working
together and trusting others as brothers
in the Lord.
Relationships build strength.
When a man's whole life is bent on
himself and his independence,
and his doing what he wants –
how weak is that –
Our whole life should be seen as being
brothers under Christ – for is this
not what God wants of us – to be
brothers in Him –
Why would a creature fight the plan
of God who created him to love
Him and live in love and unity
with His brothers –
A man spent his whole life with his
goal to do what he wanted and
everybody around him bow
to him or get out of his space –
how weak is that man because
he sees not his own vulnerability
on this earth and how God created
us to be a network of love and
unity, depending on one another,
helping each other –
real brotherly love FROM our hearts –
How weak is a man who does not trust
or work with others in trust and unity
A wind can come and blow and
like a leaf blow off by itself and
who even cares.
Oh he was the man who was mean
to us. Children know such things –
‘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.’
Jesus: Have you not lived your life in
vain if you made yourself
the center of your life and
told everyone to "buzz off" or
tried to hurt them to act out
your ways of using them like
objects that were your enemies.
I called you to be brothers in
Christ. I called you in the Church
the body of Christ –
Why did you listen to satan and
wherever you went close down
in selfish pursuits –
You were created to love!
You were created to grow in
strength in unity –
Rejecting your Creator –
Rejecting God's Plan –
Walking an isolated angry path
is a fool –
You were created to unite and
work in love and trust with
your brother –

God and of
Christ. Greetings to the twelve tribes of
the Dispersion. My brothers, consider it a

upon you, for you well know that the testing
produces perseverance, and perseverance must
complete its work so that you

any way. Any of you who lacks

You are generous and act generously,

good for me that I had to suffer,
the better to learn your judgements.
Law you have uttered is more
precious to me
than all the wealth in the world.
I know, Yahweh, that
your judgements are upright,
and in punishing me you show your constancy.
Your faithful love must be my consolation,
as you have promised your servant.
John 14: 6
I am the Way; I am Truth
No one can come to the Father
except through me.
Mark 8: 11-13
The Pharisees came up and started a
discussion with him; they demanded of him a sign from heaven, to put
him to the test. And with a profound sigh he said, ‘Why does this
generation demand a sign? In truth I tell you, no sign shall be
given to this generation.’ And, leaving them again, he re–embarked
and went away to the other side.
R. ENDURANCE under trial
Faith means we believe in the unseen God
is showing us – We see through the eyes of God.
We must try to live virtuously if we are
to imitate Jesus –
We must beg for grace and co-operate
with the grace to grow in virtue.
We live to follow in the footsteps of Jesus –
Our purpose in life is to live for the honor
and glory of God.
We want to let go of inordinate attachments
to pride and anger and jealousy, envy,
slothfulness, gluttony and lust.
We need to pray for clean hearts and
to live a holy life – ready to ask
for forgiveness and make amends
when we hurt God and others.
We need to live by the Father's will in love –
Seek the Father's will and do it because
we love God – we are under God –
we have a free will to obey God or not –
We are on a stage and God is watching
our performance 24/7.
We are sinful Fr. Carter says when
we are unloving to others –
‘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.’
James 1: 12-18
anyone who perseveres when trials come. Such
of proven worth and
the prize of life, the crown that the
promised to those who love him. Never, when
you are being put to the test, say, 'God is
be tempted by evil, and he does not put
anybody to the test. Everyone is put to the
test by being attracted and seduced by that
person's own wrong desire. Then the desire
conceives and gives birth to sin, and when
full growth, it gives birth to death. Make
no mistake about this, my dear brothers: all
that is good, all that is perfect, is given
us from above; it comes down from the Father
of all light; with him there is no such
thing as alteration, no shadow caused by
change. By his own choice he gave birth to
us by the message of the
that we should be a sort of
of all his creation.

whom you teach by means of your law,
to give them respite in

I need only say, 'I am

however great the anxiety of my heart,
your consolations soothe me.

At that time Jesus exclaimed,
‘I bless you, Father, Lord of heaven and of earth, for hiding
these things from the learned and the clever and revealing them
to little children.
R. When we have darkness in our hearts and
we lie to ourselves about our sins
and do not clean our hearts it
grows like yeast – in greater darkness –
Mark 8: 14-21
The disciples had
forgotten to take
any bread and they
had only one loaf
with them in the
boat. Then he gave
them this warning,
'Keep your eyes
open; look out for
the yeast of the
and the yeast of
Herod.' And they
said to one another,
'It is because we
have no bread.' And
knew it, and he said
to them, 'Why are
you talking about
having no bread? Do
you still not

your minds closed?

scraps did you
'And when I broke
the seven loaves for
the four thousand,
how many baskets
full of scraps did
you collect?' And
'Seven.' Then he
said to them, 'Do

R. When we love Jesus Christ we are
ready to fight for Him. If we have turmoil,
anger, darkness, chaos and
confusion in our hearts, we will not
be ready to fight for God –
Being in one mind and one heart is
the focus of the Shepherds of Christ –
God wants love –
He is love –
God wants unity –
A person can have division in their hearts
from their past and keep working that
out on others –
In their unfinished business they can just
decide to punish, be divided and
live with that intention to do that.
That's what debris and division
can do to a heart –
This is not love –
This is not being an imitator of Jesus Christ.
Seeking division and anger acted out on
innocent others is sin –
God commands us to love our
neighbor as ourselves –
What we do to others – we do to Jesus.
If we are used to a divided, angry heart –
it's time to change – not continue
acting it out on innocent others –
it's sinful, it offends God and
it drives us away from Him –
Only in God can we be happy –
In obedience to God's will –
In obedience to authority over us –
The devil says –
Oh you can do what you want –
that's old-fashioned – justify
yourself – That is wrong
We are under God –
God must be first –
We can't put anger and sin before God –
We need to examine our conscience
and be accountable and responsible
before God for our sins –
We need to love
God is love –
We drive ourselves away from God
when we live in an unloving,
The golden rule –
"Do unto others as you would have
them do unto you" –
Wednesday is Ash Wednesday –
We receive ashes –
We receive ashes because we need
to repent for our sins –
God is merciful and forgiving, but
we must admit our sins and be sorry
for them – with a firm
purpose of amendment –
God is light and in Him is no darkness –
We need to pray for grace –
Jesus: Do penance – not for show – because
you are genuinely sorry for your sins.
Joel 2: 12-18
'But now — declares
come back to me with all your heart,
fasting, weeping, mourning.'
Tear your hearts and not your clothes,
and come back to Yahweh your God,
for he is gracious and compassionate,
slow to anger, rich in faithful love,
and he relents about inflicting disaster.
Who knows if he will not come back,
and leave a blessing behind him,
a cereal offering and a libation
to be presented to Yahweh your God?

R. We must tell God we are sorry for sin
and be reconciled to Him –
Corinthians 5: 20 - 6: 2
So we are ambassadors
for Christ; it is as though God were urging
you through us, and in the name of Christ we
appeal to you to be reconciled to God. For
our sake he made the sinless one a victim
for sin, so that in him we might become the
uprightness of God.
As his fellow-workers, we
urge you not to let your acceptance of his
grace come to nothing. As he said, 'At
the time of my favour I have answered you;
on the day of salvation I have helped you';
well, now is the real time of favour, now
the day of salvation is here.

others to get to heaven –
Matthew 6: 1-6, 16-18
'Be careful not to parade your
uprightness in public to attract attention;
will lose all
reward from your Father in heaven. So when you give
alms, do not have it trumpeted before you; this is
what the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the
streets to win human admiration. In
truth I tell you,
they have had their reward. But when you give alms,
your left hand must not know what your
right is doing;
your almsgiving must be secret, and your Father who
sees all that is done in
will reward you.
'And when you pray, do not imitate the hypocrites:
they love to say their
prayers standing up
in the synagogues and at the street corners for
people to see them. In
truth I tell you,
they have had their reward. But when you pray, go to
your private room, shut yourself in, and so pray to
your Father who is in that
secret place, and
your Father who sees all that is done in
will reward you.
'When you are
fasting, do not put on a gloomy look as the
hypocrites do: they go about looking unsightly to
let people know they are fasting. In
truth I tell you,
they have had their reward. But
when you fast, put scent on your head and wash your
face, so that no one will know you are fasting
except your Father who sees all that is done in
secret; and your Father who sees all that is done in
secret will reward you.

Psalm 1: 1-2, 3, 4, 6
How blessed is anyone who
rejects the advice of the wicked
and does not take a stand in the path that sinners tread,
nor a seat in company with cynics,
but who delights in the law of Yahweh
and murmurs his law day and night.
Such a one is like a tree
planted near streams;
it bears fruit in season

and every project succeeds.

Yahweh watches over the path of

scribes and to be put to death, and to be raised up on the third
The condition of following Christ
Then, speaking to all, he said, 'If anyone wants
to be a follower of mine, let him renounce himself and take up his
cross every day and follow me. Anyone who wants to save his life
will lose it; but anyone who loses his life for my sake, will save
it. What benefit is it to anyone to win the whole world and forfeit
or lose his very self?
R. We have a duty in a religious vocation
to be examples of Christ and
under obedience build up
the community and organization.
We must atone for our sins,
our neglect, our lies,
anger, division, unloving ways,
creating turmoil for meanness –
We cannot produce disorder or use
force on others to deal with
our disobedience to tear apart
an organization God has set up.
We have an obligation, a duty
to follow in the footsteps
of Jesus!! Godly example.
Fasting can be fasting from anger,
discord, pride, attention,
power – bringing chaos and confusion.
Fasting from disobedience. Be loving, doing
the will of God with a holy heart.
Isaiah 58: 1-9
Shout for all you are worth,
do not hold back,
raise your voice like a trumpet.
To my people
proclaim their rebellious acts,
to the House of Jacob, their sins.
They seek for me day after day,
they long to know my ways,
like a nation that has acted uprightly
and not forsaken the law of its God.
They ask me for laws that are upright,
they long to be near God:
'Why have we fasted, if you do not see,
why mortify ourselves if you never notice?’
Look, you seek your own pleasure
on your fastdays
and you exploit all your workmen;
look, the only purpose of your fasting
is to quarrel and squabble
and strike viciously with your fist.
Fasting like yours today
will never make your voice heard on high.
Is that the sort of fast that pleases me,
a day when a person
inflicts pain on himself?
Hanging your head like a reed,
spreading out sackcloth and ashes?
Is that what you call fasting,
a day acceptable to Yahweh?
Is not this the sort of fast that pleases me:
to break unjust fetters,
to undo the thongs of the yoke.
to let the oppressed go free,
and to break all yokes?
Is it not sharing your food with the hungry,
and sheltering the homeless poor;
if you see someone lacking clothes,
to clothe him,
and not to turn away from your own kin?
Then your light will blaze out
like the dawn
and your wound be quickly healed over.
Saving justice will go ahead of you
and Yahweh’s glory come behind you.
Then you will cry for help
and Yahweh will answer;
you will call and he will say, ‘I am here.’
If you do away with the yoke,

Transcribed from Rosary Received
R. Jesus wants me to do a sorrowful rosary.
Song: Lord Let Me Walk
The Agony of Our Lord in the Garden
When I was in My Passion My thoughts were of you.
I saw before Me in the garden all the suffering that I was
about to undergo but I saw you in your yes, in your love given, in your life
given and day after day even though it was very difficult you kept going on and
saying yes, yes Lord, yes I love You, yes Lord. The greatest saints have had
very many hard jobs to do. I have given to you great grace and some suffering,
but I have outpoured My richest love to you and you responded with the love of
giving yourself to Me. Oh My apostles, if you say no to this mission who will I
send for I have trained you and taught you and I call you and I want you to come
and to spread the mission on to the people of this earth and those to come. Do
not under estimate the importance of this mission ever. Do not crawl in a box
and let the ants crawl over the box and hide your head, come out and see the
sun. Say yes in all that you do. Say yes to every moment of your life. Do not
give into the darkness that satan creates for he wants you to stumble and to
fall. He comes with his rope to tie you up and let you fall on your nose. Oh My
precious and dear one look into My face on the building and know that I appear
there out of greatest love for you.
And My call goes out to many and I am ignored.
Many have made money their god and they do not even know for it is the way of
life for many of the people of the earth. It needs to swing back so that people
will be able to know what is really important but they base their lives on
riches and pride, pleasure, fame, a good name. Oh My precious ones hold stead
tight to this mission. Do not falter in what I have asked you to do. Do not give
into satan for he wants to trip you up and to set you out to dry. You are given a
free will. Pray every day, take time every day to be alone with Me that you will
know My will for you. It is so easy to be led astray. Oh My precious one I want
you to help Me to do this work.
And it goes like this night, day, night, day, night, day, night, day. Did you
not learn the lesson of the cross and the lesson of the resurrection. Did you
not learn the suffering and the victory? Did you not learn, did you not learn yet when I have given you so many experiences? But you do not know as if you
had a blindfold around your head, you do not see. And they tell you again and
again and again in so many ways and yet you need to be reminded daily of the
paschal mystery - death resurrection, death resurrection, night day. Look at the
sky, it is dark and it is light and it is dark and it is light. And how is it in
your lives that you have suffering and joy. But always the joy of My love for
you should reign in your heart despite the greatest sufferings the joy of knowing
Me, the joy of giving yourself to Me, the joy of knowing how much I love you is
always in your heart.
Did you watch the grass come up year after year and it turns green? Do you watch
that here? Do you wonder? Or do you just take it for granted just like you take
the sun coming up every day, hum, for granted? The darkness comes and you fail
to even notice that the Creator moves the light and the darkness, the rain, the
sun, the sleet, the grass. I clothe the birds of this air and the little bugs
that fly about. Oh you, you who are so precious to Me, you fail to see so many
things and yet you can see the tiniest speck of dirt on the ground. What is
wrong with your vision that you see the dirt on the ground but miss the beauty
of My creation.
There once was a man who ordered a lawn care. They came out and they sprayed and
his grass was green and it looked beautiful. It was like a carpet. And he looked
out his window and he prided himself because he was so glad for his endeavor.
There was another man who tried to do it himself and his grass was brown and
then he burned it and then it just was a mess. The man who ordered the lawn care
went into the yard and saw the man with the burned grass. He went over there, he
could have put his hands in his lapels with such pride and he looked down upon
him. And he said, "huh, your grass, humph, what did you do to it?" And
the man said, "I just do not know, I tried to do it myself and it
seemed like it got worse and worse all the time." The man turned around and
went into his house and looked at his grass and he was filled with pride and joy
and he jumped up and down. What is wrong with men that they look at others who
they think are not as good as them and they jump with joy? Do you not know that
they are your brothers, that I gave My life for them the same as you? How silly
it is that one could have so much pride over his grass and not be concerned
about the spiritual matters of his life? But My children I tell you this, it
goes on all day, foolishness. Foolishness you say. Did you ever see a bird with
a long neck that buries their head in the ground? What do they see down there?
Is that a silly story too? How many people do you think that think they have the
necks that see so many things really take their head like a long-necked bird and
bury it beneath the surface of the earth wagging their feathers behind them.
Open your eyes that you will see, pray with a heart that is filled with love,
ask to be taught how to be likened to Me. For you are so blind you do not even
see many of the things that you do day after day, minute after minute. Oh you
think you are so wise, and you are so narrow-minded. I can open up your eyes and
outpour My wisdom to you, but would you listen anyway? So many are so fixed in
their ways, they like the way that they do it and they really don't want to change.
They don't really want to go that extra mile to be nice. It's too easy to be so
proud over your green grass and look at the neighbor's burned brown grass next
door and say, humph, I'm better than him.
And if you are better at one thing than another is it because of something that
you did? Or do you praise your heavenly Father and thank Him and tell Him how
much you love Him and ask Him for help to use that talent that you were given to
promote His honor and glory?
10. Hail Mary...
The Scourging at the Pillar
1. Jesus: Did you ever
look at the littlest flower and see how intricate it is with such beauty to the
2. Jesus: Sometimes
some people make little doll houses, with little beds, little furniture and they
care about the house so much that they almost climb into that world and they
forget where they are. Every place they go they are thinking about how to fix up
their little house. It may be a wonderful hobby and it may help you in some
other things in your life, but when you fix up the little house and it becomes
your obsession to the point that is all that what you think about, isn't that
sort of silly? For you can't live in the little house and you can you can only
look at it so long. What are you doing here? Are you fixing up your little house? Do
you think you will be here forever? Do you not see how the flower withers and fades
and the sun comes up and goes down? Do you not see how the baby soon turns into
an old man and the children follow close behind? Think of the story of the lady
that was obsessed with her little house, that's all she thought about was her
little house, it was
perfect. She thought about it all day and all night, she dreamed about it. She
got so obsessed she even changed some of the furniture weekly. But there was a
lack of joy in her heart because she could not use the little house. She surely
could not go inside the door, her foot would not even fit in the door but she
sure was obsessed with that little house. How foolish you are not to see the big
picture for you fix up your houses, measure your fat cells, stay here to make
everything so perfect that your life will last you think, last and last. And
you do not know that a wind can come and blow it all away. It is important to
take care of yourself and to build a home but it is foolish to be obsessed with
the material things of this earth and not to see the wider vision.
Did you see Me at the pillar? Did you see them tear My flesh? Did you see the
blood go into the air? Could you have withstood this for the one you loved? When
they came with their heavy whips and they tore pieces of flesh from My body My
thoughts were of you. And many think so little of Me that they ignore God their
Creator, they ignore God. How foolish indeed.
The sky was blue and the little bird. He was flying close, close to a little
tree and a little boy went out and he saw the beautiful bird and he thought the
bird was so close that he could almost touch him but he was afraid. The bird was
blue. And he called to his mother in a nearby kitchen window and he said,
"Mama, mama, come, mama" and at that the bird flew away. He thought he
could have touched the bird, but when he called, it startled the bird and he flew
away. How many people today reach high into the sky to touch the bird and it
flies away? How many birds have you reached for, and reached for and reached for
which were not the birds that were really in the Father's will only to watch them fly away. The
little boy sat on a tree stump and he began to cry and the mother came over and
she said, "My son it is very hard to touch the birds. I don't know if you will
ever be able to catch a wild bird and it might not be good for you. But the bird
was beautiful to look at wasn't he? He was blue, so beautiful you said." My child
there are many things that you see that are beautiful and that you want to hold
and that you want to have, but it is not the Father's will that you catch the
wild blue birds. You will learn in your life, some birds might be the right
ones, others may not be right at all.
Many people of today look at the beauty of a woman or a man and they think
because they are beautiful that they have the right to touch and to behold. I stood at the pillar and they tore My flesh for many of the people that
reached for the beauty that they had no right to touch and behold.
Now I speak to you of blood and blue birds and many may say what do they have in
common. What it is, is a parable. And I will tell you - you cannot reach for all
the things that are blue and beautiful and try to behold them. If you reach for
the things that are not of God's will you will suffer in your life. You may not
think that you will suffer, but you will suffer. You will make it more difficult
for yourself for being willful and reaching for those things that are not good
for you. To My death on the cross I hung for love of you. I am the Divine God, I
am truly present and with you in this room, no less present than the day I hung
on the cross or the day I knelt in the garden or the day I stood at the pillar.
And I speak to you to tell you these parables that you may see and study them
for future learning, for I am God and I tell you secrets to help you to have
happiness and life rooted in Me, greater life, life that will lead you to
everlasting life where there you will taste of My love and be embraced by the
7. Jesus: Now there was a dirty river that was strong and moving, moving
so strong and there was a calm river close by. A man went to cross the river. In
the strong river there were many rocks that were being washed down stream. He
wanted to get to the other side so much that he tried to cross that river that
was so hard and so strong. There was another man and he felt that he should get
to the other side but the river was very calm and very easy to cross. I just
watch you. You create logs and rocks and waves and dirt and then you say,
going to get to the other side," and then the struggle in the crossing. And I just
watch and say, "Oh My child it would have been so easy had you just done
8. Jesus: Little dogs have little houses, some are red and some are tan.
If you were on the street and you saw a doghouse that was red, would you see it
right away? Would you see the tan house right away? If the dog came out of the
tan house barking vehemently and ran after your leg, would you see the house
then? You may say to yourself, "The tan house was there and it even had a
sign that said 'Fargo' but I did not see the house and the next thing I knew he
was chasing me down the street. I wish I would have seen the house because he
scared me and my heart was beating and I thought he was going to bite me and it
was just an awful experience. Dogs should have red houses so that when you walk
down the street you'll know that there's a big ferocious dog in that red house and
you can be prepared." Oh My little one, how do you think the devil comes to
you? He does not come in a red house, he comes in the tan house that you hardly see. He may even wear a sign that says 'devil' but somehow or ever you
just don't see and guess what - he is out to attack and to get you. The devil is
filled with deception and lies and he is real. And so what is all this saying to
you? I stood at the pillar and they whipped Me and they tore My flesh and I did
it for love of you. Do you know what it is to love someone? I loved you. And I
knew you would make mistakes and I knew you would fail but My love, so great
for you, that I wanted you with Me for all eternity and I let them tear My body
and beat My flesh. And I warned you of the dog in the tan house but
you would not listen. You went right past that house and almost stuck your leg
in. I gave you My commandments. And you try to stretch them and see them all
different ways, when they were so clear. But you said if my wife doesn't love me,
then it's alright for me to go get another woman and to sneak around because it's
her fault, things like that. And the commandment was there as big as could be.
But you saw it your way and you went past the tan house and then there was a new
baby from the second lady. And then that baby grew and suffered it's whole life.
I give you My commandments that you will be happy. You can cross the water if
you want with all the rocks and the wood and the waves but a lot of that rocks
and woods and waves you did yourself. And I'll tell you this very clearly, that the
devil is real, and he is there to trick you and to lead you astray.
9. Hail Mary
10. Hail Mary
Jesus: There was a married
couple and they had lots of seeds and they went out and they planted lots of
fruit in their garden. There was a lady and her mind wandered and instead of her
planting the seeds in the garden with her husband, she went next door and
planted the seeds in the garden of the man next door. Now when the time comes
that the fruit comes forth, how should she pick the fruit from the vine? If the
man's wife comes home what should she do? Isn't that a silly story.
The Crowning with Thorns
1. Jesus: I want
you to sing to Me songs of praise and love. I want you to honor Me as King. And
yet I came to this earth and they pounded a crown of thorns into My head and I
bled for all the sins that the men would commit with their heads, sins of pride
and hatred, thoughts that they would give into and hurt others because of their
greed and selfishness and lust. I am Jesus the Son of God and they came to Me
and they mocked Me and they spit on Me and they took the crown and the thorns
went into My head and the blood ran into My eyes and My mouth. It was not a
pretty sight but when you love someone you give out of love for them. I gave for
love of you. Many today use My Name in vain. How I suffered for the men and the
way that they would use My Name. When you say My Name in prayer you give to Me
great joy. When you sing the Name Jesus with love and praise, I am filled with joy.
There are so many today, you do not even know how My Name is defaced on your
media and by senseless men. Some whose hearts are filled with anger as if they
are testing Me to see if I would bring My hand on them and yet I just say one
thing. When you cross the river do you go to the one that is strong and filled
with debris? Or do you go to the calm one? Men that beep their horns and shake
their fists and do gestures that are very unholy, really hurt themselves. And
every time that you hurt others you are doing those things to Me.
2. Song: I Am the Bread of
3. Sing: Ave Maria, Ave
I am a God of miracles.
4. Sing: King of Glory
Sing: To Jesus Christ Our Sovereign King
R. Dear God we honor You, we worship You, we love You and we thank You for the
sufferings that You under went for our sins.
5. Jesus: There once
was a little green bush and a little boy came out every day and he played by the
little green bush. One day he came out and the little green bush was gone and he
went back into his house and he cried to his mother, "Mama, Mama, Mama
where did that little green bush where I use to play every day go?" And she
said, "Well honey I'm sorry, but it was not on our property. It was really
on the other man's property and when you played you were playing on our property
but it was the other man's green bush. And I'm sorry that he took the green bush
down but there are some things that you have to give up in life." Later on
that afternoon the little boy found out that his grandma had died. Life goes on
in cycles. I give you one another to love and to help each other, to spread My
Kingdom and to be with Me forever. But just like the little green bush and the
little boy's grandma, life goes on. And you plant the seeds here below and
sometimes others have to tend to those seeds after you are gone but you never
stop, you keep on going because that you know that life goes on and on and on in
heaven and you do all that you can to promote My Kingdom for your life here is
so temporary. It is like the lady with the little house, she kept working on her
little house and working on her little house and working on her little house and
she never could put one foot in the door.
6. Jesus: But the
little boy would not let go. And he went outside several days later when he saw
the person next door that owned the bush and he went up to him and he said,
"You know" he said, "I loved to play there and the bush gave me
shade and I was so happy and one day I went out there and you took the bush
away. Did you not know that I played there?" And the man said to him, "I
really don't care."
7. Jesus: It isn't like
that, that you live in the world and you can decide that you are not going to
care what happens to someone else. It isn't that the old man or the old lady
that go to church should just think about themselves and their family and pray
as if they live in an isolated island. You must do all that you can to show the
world a wider vision that what they do today in their spiritual life and how
their children grow to follow the vocation that they have been given will affect
the lives of people to come for all the centuries after them. It isn't like that,
you are all connected.
8. Jesus: And when they
beat Me and I suffered and I hung on the cross and I died, I died for each and
9. Jesus: Little
children are so precious and they are being taught so many unclean things. You
must pray as never before as I have directed and begin the prayer chapters for
you pray fervently for your priests for they need these prayers and the Church
needs the prayers, and the world. You can't say to yourself, " well it's too hard
to get a prayer chapter going here, they don't want to do that." You have to keep
trying. You are the ones I have called to spread this to the future generations,
to tell them about My Movement Shepherds of Christ. It is only in its infancy
stages. Tell them, tell them Rita, tell them what I tell you now.
Jesus Carries His Cross
1. Jesus: Now I just
want to tell you a little story. When you go out to the parking lot there is the
possibility that your car will not start. And after futile attempts to try to make it
go and your desire to get home, if you look around and no one is there will you
pick your car up on your back and carry it to the gas station because you want
to get home today? You say, "Well Jesus I can't carry a car." I
carried My cross to the hill of Calvary and it was heavier than any car. It was
laden with the sins of the world and when I fell and it fell on Me, on My back,
My chin hit the ground. I am the Almighty God and I got up and I moved on. Now I
ask you today to get up when it is difficult and to move on. Some people sit
down as soon as it becomes difficult. They get into their feelings and they drop
the ball. Do you know what happens in the game, if it's a baseman and he's
running from second to third base and then all of a sudden because he sees that
there's a little pressure coming at him from a few directions, he just drops the
ball and sits there. What would the crowd do at such a player and would he lose
his job? What do I do with you when you are going from second to third base and
satan is pressing in and I have a deadline and then you say, "Whew, this is too
hard." And you sit down right there and drop the ball.
2. Jesus: Now a man
went out and he wore a cap and he always wore it so that the flap was sort of to the
side and back. A little girl came up and she said to the man, she said,
"Mister, your hat's crooked." And he became very angry at her and he
started to curse the little girl and said "Who are you, you smart little
girl to come up here and talk to me like that?" Sometimes from the mouths
of babes you are told the very thing that needs to change in your lives. And you
run them away and do exactly what is like logs and rocks floating down the rough
3. Jesus: I carried My
cross to the hill of Calvary, there I mounted it and I died for love of you. I
died for you. I died for you.
4. Jesus: My cross was
so heavy it was laden with the sins of the world. The crosses I give to you can
be very heavy, some maybe not so heavy. Crosses come in all sizes but in your
heart should be the underlying love and joy that Jesus your Savior loves you so
much. He carried His cross to the hill of Calvary and He died for love of you.
Keep that thought ever before your mind and your joy should be filled always
even in great suffering. I carried My cross when it was so heavy and I got up
when I thought I could not hardly get up but I knew that I could because of My
love for you.
5. Hail Mary
6. Hail Mary
7. Jesus: I carried My
cross to the hill of Calvary, there I mounted it, there I hung for 3 agonizing
hours to My death on the cross. I shed the last drop of My Blood and gave the
last beat of My Heart for you.
1. Jesus sings: I died for
you, I died for you.
2. Jesus: Your life is
so important for the souls.
3. Jesus: Don't put all
your hope in the little doll house.
4. Jesus: Have quiet
time every day to come and to communicate with Me. You do not want ferocious
rivers filled with rocks and debris that you make yourselves.
5. Jesus: Remember that
satan can be a little dog house - inside a ferocious lion that you do not even see.
Ask for eyes to see the ways that satan can trip you up.
6. Jesus: You can't
hold on to people and places always forever. Sometimes you have to let go.
7. Jesus: I hung for 3
agonizing hours on the cross. I watch you, many of you cannot wait a second. You
act, sometimes, to cause greater trouble in your life because you are impatient.
While I am working in your life after you pray you do something to botch the
8. Jesus: Impatience is
9. Jesus: Lack of love,
lack of faith, lack of being committed to My Movement. Give yourself every day.
Read your little prayer every day. Fr. Carter told you that everyday he prayed
and prayed for the grace to live up to his vocation. You must pray for the grace
to live up to your vocation. You are at battle and the evil one wants you to
stop. So many people have turned away because they have given in, because they
have not prayed. Your problems in many cases were caused by those who gave into
the evil one and now live in pain.
10. Jesus: Oh that the
devil really did come in a red suit with a pitch fork but some would still
Jesus: He comes that you will
suffer and that you will weave a web of destruction. He comes and he wants to
take your soul home to hell with him. How many people of the earth today do not even
realize the workings of the evil one? They go by the tan dog house every day.
Even when the dog comes and bites their leg, they just don't see.
