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.

Jeremiah 11:18-20

Yahweh informed me and I knew it; you then revealed their scheming to me. I for my part was like a trustful lamb being led to the slaughterhouse, not knowing the schemes they were plotting against me, ‘Let us destroy the tree in its strength, let us cut him off from the land of the living, so that his name may no longer be remembered!’ 

Yahweh Sabaoth, 
   whose judgement is upright, 
tester of motives and thoughts, 
I shall see your vengeance on them, 
for I have revealed my cause to you.


St. Thomas says:

                "The man who sins through
                ignorance or passion is like
                a man who is temporarily ill.
                When his illness passes - when
                he learns better or when his
                passion subsides - he can
                recover easily.

                But when a man is chronically
                ill of a serious disease then
                his recovery is uncertain and
                sometimes most improbable. So
                too the man who sins through sheer
                malice has a disease of the will
                itself. Neither knowledge alone
                nor the cessation of passion
                removes the disease of a
                bad will. A man with a bad
                will has a more or less
                permanent inclination to evil.
                And because will is the basic
                principle or source of free human
                acts, sins of malice are more
                evil in themselves. That is
                why men forgive sins of
                ignorance or of passion more
                readily than they forgive sins
                of malice. We can forgive a man
                when we say that he did not know
                what he was doing. But we resent
                a man's actions when we say that he
                does them on purpose."

                My way of Life – Pocket Edition of St. Thomas
                            by Walter Farrell OP, STM and
                            Martin J. Healy S.T.D. 1952

                R. It is far worse for a man to do a malicious deed and to
                hold concealed the deed in deception for God is
                absolute truth and to sin with such maliciousness
                comes from within the man.

                    Sin is disorder –how great is the disorder and
                darkness of the heart and soul. God wants us to
                have a loving relationship with Him.
                Everything is about relationship – built on trust,
                built on love, built on truth.

                    God knows all things – The heavenly Father knows
                our needs before we ask. He loves us. Jesus loves us
                so much He died for us. Why would a person lie before
                God – bringing deception and malicious conduct
                into a relationship with God and others who have
                loved them and tried to establish relationship with
                them, when in malicious conduct – they turn their
                back on God and others and remain in deception
                because the sin is their top priority, darkness,
                and their desire to hold secrets and deception
                before God.

                    Eve ate of the forbidden fruit and then she
                knew she had sinned. She hid herself, but none
                of us can hide from God who is absolute truth
                and knows all things.

                    When a man continues to walk in darkness and
                deception as long as he does so before God and
                hides his guilt – he is saying that his sin is
                more important to him than God.

                    How paradoxical is this to remain in sin and
                hide the truth of malicious conduct as if God
                does not know all things and the sin can be
                hidden. God is all knowing – we are being
                tested here below – God commands us to love
                Him and to love others as ourselves.

                    The devil tempts the person with a weak will
                and they can give in very easily. The person walking
                in virtue and praying for grace for a stronger will
                can ask God to help them to resist temptation and
                we see the devil even trying to tempt Jesus the
                first Sunday of Lent in the Gospel.

                    The devil wants the person sinning to be
                disordered, to say yes to sinning against
                God's will. Maliciousness done St. Thomas says
                comes from a diseased will – like one having
                cancer, they will not bounce back like a man being
                diseased from the flu. Maliciousness comes from
                a diseased will – how dark is the sin within when
                it is hugged and enjoyed and secretive of
                this malicious conduct.

                    God can give a man a tremendous gift of grace
                because of others' prayers and the person of weak
                will and maliciousness can choose the evil –
                in the face of God and hold onto it.

                    Mary is the perfect handmaid of the Lord. Mary
                was conceived without sin – God has given us
                such a gift to love and serve Him. Like the
                prodigal son – we can squander the gift and
                choose to say yes to the leprosy of sin and to
                remain in darkness, turning our backs to
                purity and truth and asking God for forgiveness
                is so offensive to God.

                Jesus: It is a hypocrite who walks before men and
                shows them a title, a way of life that looks
                righteous and underneath conceals the secrets
                and darkness of malicious conduct.

                    Pray to be pure. I died for the sins, so scarlet
                red from those who walk in deception and enjoy
                their lies. How disgusting, I bled, blood red blood
                for malicious conduct.

                    Love and peace is not stirring the pot for
                turmoil and deception and excitement and
                drama. Walking deceptively before God as if
                I do not see the brazenness of their ways, the deception
                and lies of the heart.

                    I call you to love and to truth, to walk the
                ways of peace and love and trust with your

                    The man of maliciousness walks from the
                misery of darkness and sin he chooses inside,
                how it galls Me to see this brazenness
                when I have given so much love and they
                turn from Me in rejection these men who
                do not even care for their sin and parade
                their wrath and deception before men for their
                own power.

                    How deep is the darkness within when one
                fails to be sorry for sin and hugs it with
                joy for deceiving the just.

                    "Punishment is mine" says the Lord.

                    The just will know peace in My Kingdom,
                they walk in righteousness and are pleasing
                to My Father, but the  man who denies his
                sin and hugs his malicious conduct will
                know justice for his evil deeds –

                    I am all just –

                    You were made to love the Lord your God with
                your whole heart, your whole soul and your
                whole being. Satan is division, separation,
                driving darkness and deception where
                there could have been peace and love and

                    Stirring the pot and lying for the sport
                of it, is turning your back on the love
                I give to  you. How dark is your heart?
                Heaven is a place prepared for those who
                loved and served the Lord.

                    Hell is eternal misery, division, and the
                absence of God, anything that is good –
                beyond anything you can imagine and there
                will be the grinding of teeth and the
                wailing shrieks of ugliness, for the souls
                of hell turned in maliciousness from
                a loving God and served satan without
                repentance of their sins.

                    You were created to know, love and serve God.
                The devils know they are condemned to hell
                forever and they are jealous of men who
                can be forgiven and live eternally with God
                in heaven.

                    Who walks as the enemy of the Lord,
                but the man walking in maliciousness
                and not asking for forgiveness. The
                gall of him who parades as if
                I do not see their ways and they reject
                a good and loving God.

                    But the man deceives himself with
                his unrelented lewd conduct. He deceives
                and condemns himself. I died a brutal
                death for your sins, I have given them
                so much love and they turned their back to
                God for their sordid ways and sinned mortally
                unrepented before a loving God.


Wisdom 2:1, 12-22

And this is the false argument they use, 
‘Our life is short and dreary, 
there is no remedy when our end comes, 
no one is known to have come back from Hades.

Let us lay traps for the upright man, since he annoys us 
and opposes our way of life, 
reproaches us for our sins against the Law, 
and accuses us of sins against our upbringing. 
He claims to have knowledge of God, 
and calls himself a child of the Lord. 
We see him as a reproof to our way of thinking, 
the very sight of him weighs our spirits down; 
for his kind of life is not like other people’s, 
and his ways are quite different. 
In his opinion we are counterfeit; 
he avoids our ways as he would filth; 
he proclaims the final end of the upright as blessed 
and boasts of having God for his father. 
Let us see if what he says is true, 
and test him to see what sort of end he will have. 
For if the upright man is God’s son, God will help him 
and rescue him from the clutches of his enemies. 
Let us test him with cruelty and with torture, 
and thus explore this gentleness of his 
and put his patience to the test. 
Let us condemn him to a shameful death 
since God will rescue him—or so he claims.’

Error of the godless

This is the way they reason, but they are misled, 
since their malice makes them blind. 
They do not know the hidden things of God, 
they do not hope for the reward of holiness, 
they do not believe in a reward for blameless souls.


                Jesus: You were put here to grow in My image
                    and likeness and walk My ways and
                    some who sinned mortally and did
                    not repent were the ones who erred,
                    but the price was their own soul.
                    You are here and put to the test, I
                    know all things, why would you
                    walk deceptively before Me –

                Some wallow in their ways for they could not
                    love or let others love them – their
                    ways were chaos and darkness and
                    when the sky opened and the light
                    shown – they turned their hearts to
                    darkness for the scum within them
                    was their delight –

                Oh the leprosy of sin – when I offered
                    them forgiveness and healing they
                    chose to walk without My healing
                    and turned their back in deception,
                    for power in darkness is no power
                    at all, it is condemnation for the
                    man of malicious deeds who covers his tracks,
                    denying before Me and to himself that
                    I know all things, I know everything
                    and the darkness of the heart steeped
                    in mortal sin and deception.

                I am a God of Justice. I am above all.

Philippians 3: 17 - 4: 1

Brothers, be united in imitating me. Keep your eyes fixed on those who act according to the example you have from me. or there are so many people of whom I have often warned you, and now I warn you again with tears in my eyes, who behave like the enemies of Christ’s cross. hey are destined to be lost; their god is the stomach; they glory in what they should think shameful, since their minds are set on earthly things. But our homeland is in heaven and it is from there that we are expecting a Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transfigure the wretched body of ours into the mould of his glorious body, through the working of the power which he has, even to bring all things under his mastery.

So then, my brothers and dear friends whom I miss so much, my joy and my crown, hold firm in the Lord, dear friends.


                Jesus: In your life you are to be holy –
                    to work for purity –
                    to walk justly –
                    to be people of the Light –

                Only a fool turns to malicious conduct and
                    deception before the Lord, for I know
                    all things and the eyes of God are
                    on the just to help them to have,
                    someday, eternal life –
                    but to the wicked man, who walks
                    in darkness and hides their sinful
                    ways in deception –
                    they will suffer a fate beyond
                    their imaging for their lewd conduct –

                Do not walk in darkness, My children,
                    your ways of darkness that you give
                    into scorn Me and condemn
                    yourselves, when you will not repent
                    and turn from your evil, deceptive, ways.

                R. Jesus shows us Himself as the Suffering Servant
                    who died for us, for our sins.

                Jesus suffered for us –
                Jesus is the Mediator –

                Jesus came so we could be united
                    in intimate oneness with
                    God – in intimate love –

                Why would anyone reject their
                    vocation to spread the Good News –
                    and help in the work of redemption –


Micah 7: 7-9

But I shall look to Yahweh, my hope is in the God who will save me; my God will hear me. Do not gloat over me, my enemy: though I have fallen, I shall rise; though I live in darkness, Yahweh is my light. I must endure Yahweh's anger for I have sinned against him, until he takes up my cause and rights my wrongs; he will bring me out into the light, and then I shall contemplate his saving justice.


Jeremiah 7: 23-28

My one command to them was this: Listen to my voice, then I will be your God and you shall be my people. In everything, follow the way that I mark out for you, and you shall prosper. But they did not listen, they did not pay attention; they followed their own devices, their own stubborn and wicked inclinations, and got worse rather than better. From the day your ancestors left Egypt until today, I have sent you all my servants the prophets, persistently sending them day after day. But they have not listened to me, have not paid attention; they have deliberately resisted, behaving worse than their ancestors. So you will tell them all this, but they will not listen to you; you will call them, but they will not answer you." Then you are to say to them, "This is the nation that will neither listen to the voice of Yahweh its God nor take correction. Sincerity is no more, it has vanished from their mouths.


                R. God is love.

                In Him there is no darkness!

Jeremiah 17: 5-10

A group of wisdom sayings

Yahweh says this,
'Accursed be anyone
  who trusts in human beings,
who relies on human strength
and whose heart turns from Yahweh.
Such a person is like scrub
  in the wastelands:
when good comes, it does not affect him
since he lives in the parched places
  of the desert,
uninhabited, salt land.

'Blessed is anyone who trusts in Yahweh,
with Yahweh to rely on.
Such a person is like a tree by the waterside
that thrusts its roots to the stream:
when the heat comes it has nothing to fear,
its foliage stays green;
untroubled in a year of drought,
it never stops bearing fruit.

'The heart is more devious
  than any other thing,
and is depraved;
  who can pierce its secrets?
I, Yahweh, search the heart,
test the motives,
to give each person what his conduct
and his actions deserve.


                R. Our leaders are to be men of integrity –
                    Leaders knowing their place –
                    Leaders knowing they are under God –

                A fool wastes his time trying to
                prove he is above and others are below –
                he can see himself even above God –
                but his time is spent in wasted
                    energy and he has weakened
                    his will against evil with
                    his lewd conduct and serving
                    his unrelented malicious heart –

                Oh cry to the hills Jerusalem –
                    They spilled the blood of our Savior,
                    They rejected His love given in
                        such a sacrifice to die for
                        their sins –

                How are men so blind to hug the darkness
                    and to turn away from the face of God.

                Cry to the hills Jerusalem –
                    the babies cry for the deeds before them –

                Jesus: Oh My People pray as I have
                    directed you to pray –
                    My Heart is a Heart of pure and perfect
                        love –
                    My Mother's Heart is all pure –

                    Give your life to Our Two Hearts –

                    Walk in the way of the light –

                    Turn your backs to the darkness –

Jeremiah 18:18-20

‘Come on,’ they said, ‘let us concoct a plot against Jeremiah, for the Law will not perish for lack of priests, nor advice for lack of wise men, nor the word for lack of prophets. Come on, let us slander him and pay no attention to anything he says.’

Pay attention to me, Yahweh,
hear what my adversaries are saying.
Should evil be returned for good?
Now they are digging a pit for me.
Remember how I pleaded before you
and spoke good of them,
to turn your retribution away from them.


                R. Christ paid for our sins with
                    His life given for us on the cross.

                Oh Jesus, Your love is so great and
                    your sacrifice unyielding to the
                    man of vengeance – he sees
                    not the truth and he walks in
                    the hugged darkness –
                    Why? Why? Is he so blind
                    covered with the leprosy of sin
                    that can be healed only by You?

                How are we if we stood before God today –
                    how are our thoughts, words
                    and deeds –
                    Why do we defy the just God –

                    Why do men hug darkness and turn their
                        backs to God –

                    Oh God open the hearts that are
                        closed down and help them
                        to see their fate if they do
                        not change their ways.

Isaiah 1: 10, 16-20

Hear what Yahweh says,
    you rulers of Sodom;
listen to what our God teaches,
    you people of Gomorrah.

wash, make yourselves clean.
Take your wrong-doing out of my sight.
Cease doing evil. Learn to do good,
search for justice, discipline the violent,
be just to the orphan, plead for the widow.

'Come, let us talk this over,' says Yahweh.
'Though your sins are like scarlet,
they shall be white as snow;
though they are red as crimson,
    they shall be like wool.
If you are willing to obey,
    you shall eat the good things of the earth.
But if you refuse and rebel,
    the sword shall eat you instead —
for Yahweh's mouth has spoken.'


                R. We must admit our faults. No relationship
                    with God or others can be based
                    on lies and deception –

                We must see through God's eyes –

                We must see our sins of the past and
                    recognize them and ask God for
                    forgiveness –

                This is relationship – it can't be
                    based on lies –

                We pray for grace to see our sins
                    and to repent of them before
                    God – to be honest so we can
                    grow in relationships with God
                    and others – to be trustworthy
                    before God and others –
                    to be true to our word –
                    to live in love –
                    to take the Covenant with God seriously –
                    No relationship is solid when based on lies –

                Jesus: Who is the enemy –
                    The one living a lie and walking
                    in deception --
                    he is an enemy to the building
                        of My Kingdom –

                R. We must be faithful before God –
                    Jesus shows us Himself on the cross –
                    Jesus was faithful to His mission to
                        the heavenly Father –

                Study Jesus' fidelity as you gaze upon the crucifix –

                God the Father wants kindness and fidelity –

                God calls us to believe –
                God wants us to act in faith –

                Jesus was sent and He spoke with

                Please God be merciful and forgive
                    our transgressions before You.
                    We are sorry for our sins –
                    Please forgive us –

                We are slaves when we give into envy
                    and jealousy and pride and
                    hatred of our brothers –
                    These come from the wounded
                        human nature –
                    We must repent of our sins and
                        grow in faith –
                    Beg for God's grace and turn
                        to God –
                        not away from God in further
                        darkness –

                Freedom is found in obeying the will of God.


Psalm 18: 48-49

who rescues me from my raging enemies.
You lift me high above those who attack me,
you deliver me from the man of violence.

For this I will praise you, Yahweh, among the nations,
and sing praise to your name.


                R. Christ wants us to not be slaves of sin –

                Christ died for our sins –

                Put in Our Father –

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.


John 8: 31-42

To the Jews who believed in him Jesus said: 

    If you make my word your home 
    you will indeed be my disciples; 
    you will come to know the truth, 
    and the truth will set you free. 

    They answered, ‘We are descended from Abraham and we have never been the slaves of anyone; what do you mean, “You will be set free?” ’

    Jesus replied: In all truth I tell you, 
    everyone who commits sin is a slave. 
    Now a slave has no permanent standing 
        in the household, 
    but a son belongs to it for ever. 
    So if the Son sets you free, 
    you will indeed be free.

    I know that you are descended
        from Abraham;
    but you want to kill me
    because my word finds no place in you.
    What I speak of
    is what I have seen at my Father’s side,
    and you too put into action
    the lessons you have learnt
        from your father.

They repeated, ‘Our father is Abraham.’ Jesus said to them:

    If you are Abraham’s children,
    do as Abraham did.
    As it is, you want to kill me,
    a man who has told you the truth
    as I have learnt it from God;
    that is not what Abraham did.
    You are doing your father’s work.

They replied, ‘We were not born illegitimate, the only father we have is God.’ Jesus answered:

    If God were your father,
        you would love me,
    since I have my origin in God
        and have come from him;
    I did not come of my own accord,
    but he sent me. 


                R. God wants to forgive us of our sins –
                    We must come and ask for
                    forgiveness –

                We need to be in order –

                God is above – we are under Him.

                Not make ourselves an enemy by
                    being prideful and sinning
                    against God –

                Jesus was sent by the heavenly Father!
                Jesus gave His life for us –
                This is His love given for us –
                Love is giving!

                We are to love in thoughts, words and
                    actions – this is our call for our
                    life's work from God –

                God is love!

                Hatred increases when one gives
                    way to it and turns their
                    backs to God –

                We see Jesus as the Suffering Servant!

                We must learn that we care to die to our
                    bad habits and live likened to Christ.

                Jesus is to be loved and honored – it is
                    our duty –

                God promises eternal salvation to
                    those who love and serve God
                    as He desires –

                Heavenly Father, we cry the poor
                    banished children of Adam and Eve –
                    help us this day to love and serve
                    You as You deserve!

                Jesus came to this earth from the womb
                    of Mary –

                Jesus taught us and He healed many
                    in disease and sin –

                He taught with a two-edged
                    sword, with the tongue of
                    sweetness and the truth of
                    salvation for the just man –

                We toiled and struggled and fought
                    the good fight for Him and God
                    promises us the reward of
                    eternal salvation for fighting
                    for the Good News –

                Oh God make me beautiful in
                    wholeness and light and grace
                    before You –
                    be my strength in this battle
                        here below –
                    help me to serve You, God –
                    now and love You eternally.


Philippians 2: 8-11

he was humbler yet, 
even to accepting death, 
death on a cross. 

And for this God raised him high, 
and gave him the name 
which is above all other names;

so that all beings 
in the heavens, on earth 
    and in the underworld, 
should bend the knee
at the name of Jesus 
and that every tongue should acknowledge 
Jesus Christ as Lord, 
to the glory of God the Father.


                R. We are given the Word –

                Before we teach others, we must
                    live the Word ourselves –

                Judas betrayed Jesus –

                Judas betrayed Jesus for money!


1 Corinthians 11: 23-26

    For the tradition I received from the Lord and also handed on to you is that on the night he was betrayed, the Lord Jesus took some bread, and after he had given thanks, he broke it, and he said, ‘This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me.’ And in the same way, with the cup after supper, saying, ‘This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Whenever you drink it, do this as a memorial of me.’ Whenever you eat this bread, then, and drink this cup, you are proclaiming the Lord’s death until he comes.





  February 9, 2016

Dear Friends,

I give my heart to Jesus and Mary with you in love.

If you read Fr. Joe's book like I did on the 13th you can see how awesome it is.

It helps me understand what is happening in the writings during the liturgical year.

It is so very good, it makes me so eager to live the liturgy in my life,
live in the liturgical year.

Well we have sent over 13,000 of Fr. Joe's new cycle books since the beginning of November to priests and hierarchy
all over the world.

It can enrich so many lives with the weekly sermon rooted in the Word, the Eucharist,
the liturgy,
the Mass,

Baptism, love and unity.

When a priest uses the book weekly he focuses on the Bread of Life to feed the people.

Say a priest says 4 or 5 Masses weekly
Think of how many souls could be reached with the people attending Mass.

Fr. Joe speaks of love and being a member of the body of Christ, living in relationships
all in the context of the scripture.

We see salvation history and its ups and downs -
we see our calling from God
and we see our part in salvation history.

God calls - we respond.

The body of Christ can help the world to raise up to greater perfection.

What are you doing to help this coming election in the United States.

This book of Fr. Joe's can help so many people every week.

We have sent over 13,000 books out to priests and hierarchy to every priest in your state.

We have sent the books to so many priests in the United States and all Bishops.

Can't you help us.

We also send a Prayer Brochure with the Shepherds of Christ prayers praying for the priests, the Church and the world.

We pray in adoration 8 days a month with usually 6 Masses for you, your family and the priests the Church and the world.

We pray in 24 hour adoration before the Exposed Blessed Eucharist in China for all this and for you.

The China mortgage is due tomorrow

and we are struggling because of giving so much money to the Ministries.

Can anyone help us with a donation.

Also we are printing another 20,000 of Fr. Joe's books
going to all the priests in the United States.

This can enormously help for this coming election.

A weekly Priestly Newsletter used about the scriptures and everything at Sunday Mass.

Please we need your help.

If you want to know what to do to help the world and especially all active priests in the United States please help us with a donation.

We need your help today.
Thanks for your prayers and help in advance.

God Bless you and love you.

Guiding Light - Reflect on the Word
Inspiring Homilies Covering Cycle B of the Litugical 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 Litugical 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 Litugical 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 Litugical 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

"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
