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 new president as he takes office. We pray that we are united as one nation under God to work together in love as God wants.
God's Blue Book 17 is available
$5.00 plus postage.
Help us spread the Blue Books.

R. We have seen the risen Lord.
God has sent His only Son into
the world because He loves us
so much. The Good News – Jesus
God really loves us – This is
reality – We want that interior
union with Him. When people
give into the deadly sins, pride,
anger, jealousy – they turn their
hearts away from God.
God is all pure, all good,
Jesus is the way, the truth and
the life –
We must seek the truth. Satan is
the Father of lies. He wants to
burrow his way in the hearts
using the deadly sins of pride,
anger, jealousy, envy, slothfulness,
lust, gluttony –
Satan tells people to lie.
When a person does something
wrong they are to tell God, with
a firm purpose of amendment,
they are sorry.
The devil wants a person
to think they are always right –
He wants a person to justify himself
when he is wrong and be concerned
only that he argues he is right.
A person of good will wants the
right thing to be made known. He
puts God first not his pride,
jealousy, envy, anger and
being right when they are wrong.
When they are wrong they promptly
admit it and want to rectify
what happened because of
Projecting anger out of a
dark heart on innocent others
is wrong. An abuser decides
an innocent other deserves
their abuse. God commands us
to love. Distorted thinking can
become more and more distorted
and twisted as one allows satan
in their hearts through deadly
sins and lets him work in their
hearts in lies and aggressive ways.
Did you ever see or read C.S. Lewis'
Screw Tape Letters? Satan is
commissioning a younger devil to
do the evil to win a person to his
side. He works like a screw
a little at a time going in
for the kill.
It's like the frog and hot water –
If you throw a frog in boiling
water he jumps out, but put
him in warm water and turn
up the heat gradually and he
will stay in the pot and die.
The interior union, communion,
relationship with God is most
important. The Blue Books help us
to have this interior relationship.
But a person that thrives on the
deadly sins – PRIDE – being right
and above at all costs –
JEALOUSY – looking with jealous,
red eyes on their neighbor,
ENVY – seeing the good of another
and wanting to bring them down.
SLOTHFULNESS - refusing the crosses
in our lives – refusing to work
in loving relationships with others
not doing what is needed to advance
the Christian life in us –
ANGER – allowing ourselves because
of anger in us (some deep-seated)
to act out, project, nurse
anger held out on innocent
LUST – lusting sexually –
lusting after power
lusting after negative attention –
taking over an event to
sabotage it for our
own chaos, confusion,
GLUTTONY – over indulgence of food,
drink – not disciplining one self
as they should.
Revelation 5: 9-10
They sang a new hymn: You are worthy to take the scroll and to break its seals, because you were sacrificed, and with your blood you bought people for God of every race, language, people and nation and made them a line of kings and priests for God, to rule the world.
R. Jesus is our Savior
Song: A Song from Jesus
R. The deadly sins are sins, bad
habits we can tell ourselves
are okay –
When we want the interior life
rooted in God – we must
be truthful – not make
wrong - right and make right –
wrong for our pride, anger, jealousy.
The Apostles, after Jesus rose, and the
Holy Spirit came upon them were happy
to suffer for the cause of Christ.
There is a far cry from holiness
in the person with deliberate,
malice of intent allowing themselves
to punish and bring down evil
on innocent others.
Jesus calls the leaders hypocrites
if they call themselves religious leaders
before men and operate this
way. The very hairs in our
nose are known by God –
who do we deceive when we
listen to satan and allow ourselves
to be tricked by his evil temptations
and we give in willingly –
God is so good – God gives us
a sharing in His life in baptism –
Giving into jealousy and anger
and pride (being right and up)
drive us away from that
interior light and communication
we need inside with God.
When the devil is ruling in
a man's heart because the man
has let him do so – the man is
dark and despondent inside and
then since it is so awful the
man can become exterior –
instead of interior because
inside they have opened the
door to satan and then he
can tempt them to cause chaos
and confusion in the lives of
others (exteriorly) because
they don't feel good inside.
We want communication of God
in our hearts. We want truth
in us. We want the presence
of the Holy Spirit in us.
God is light and in Him is no darkness.
We want the interior life where we
have the truth in us. We want the
dwelling of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit
in our graced, baptized soul.
John 14: 16-17
I shall ask the Father,
and he will give you another Paraclete
to be with you for ever,
the Spirit of truth
whom the world can never accept
since it neither sees nor knows him;
but you know him,
because he is with you, he is in you.
R. The Apostles spread the Church.
They were eye witnesses to Jesus.
The Holy Spirit filled them – they were
fearless – they were joyful to
suffer for Christ – they were
whipped, threatened, imprisoned –
they had the mission Jesus gave
them in their hearts – they were
fearless for Christ!
The Lord is our light and our salvation.
Jesus taught the Apostles and worked
miracles. They followed in the
footsteps of Jesus.
Romans 4: 25
because we believe in him who raised from the dead our Lord Jesus who was handed over to death for our sins and raised to life for our justification.
R. We must turn to God in all
we do. Put God first – do
everything for His honor and glory.
We must be resurrection people.
We live a new life in Christ –
Christ lives in us. We die
to the ways not like Christ
and we live a new life in
The Church grew with the Apostles
because they were dedicated to the
mission Christ gave them.
Psalm 33: 1-2, 4-5, 18-19
Shout for joy, you upright;
praise comes well from the honest.
Give thanks to Yahweh on the lyre,
play for him on the ten–stringed lyre.
The word of Yahweh is straightforward,
all he does springs from his constancy.
He loves uprightness and justice;
the faithful love of Yahweh fills the earth.
But see how Yahweh watches over those who fear him,
those who rely on his faithful love,
to rescue them from death
and keep them alive in famine.
R. Jesus showed them they must
have faith. Jesus walked on
water. Jesus multiplied the
loaves and the fish –
We need Easter joy in our
lives. We are happy to serve
God, like the Apostles, in
our vocation –
This takes interior union with
God – Mary shows us - she was
the sorrowful Mother under the
R. She was the Mother of Easter
joy - Mother of the Church –
25 Years Ago
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. end of May 13, 1993
R. Interior union with God –
The truth in us – walking in
holiness – being guided by
the Holy Spirit.
Jesus laid down His life for us!
He live in Jesus! We follow Jesus!
We live His example! We live
the pascal mystery of death/resurrection.
Revelation 19: 5
Then a voice came from the throne; it said, ‘Praise our God, you servants of his and those who fear him, small and great alike.’
Revelation 12: 10-16
Then I heard a voice shout from heaven, ‘Salvation and power and empire for ever have been won by our God, and all authority for his Christ, now that the accuser, who accused our brothers day and night before our God, has been brought down. They have triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word to which they bore witness, because even in the face of death they did not cling to life. So let the heavens rejoice and all who live there; but for you, earth and sea, disaster is coming -- because the devil has gone down to you in a rage, knowing that he has little time left.'
As soon as the dragon found himself hurled down to the earth, he sprang in pursuit of the woman, the mother of the male child, but she was given a pair of the great eagle's wings to fly away from the serpent into the desert, to the place where she was to be looked after for a time, two times and half a time. So the serpent vomited water from his mouth, like a river, after the woman, to sweep her away in the current, but the earth came to her rescue; it opened its mouth and swallowed the river spewed from the dragon's mouth.
R. Jesus is the Bread of Life –
We have His Word and the Eucharist!
We imitate Jesus, who is
the way, the truth and the life.
Psalm 71: 8, 23
My mouth is full of your praises,
filled with your splendour all day long.
My lips sing for joy as I play to you,
because you have redeemed me,
John 6: 35-40
Jesus answered them:
I am the bread of life.
No one who comes to me will ever hunger;
no one who believes in me will ever thirst.
But, as I have told you,
you can see me and still you do not believe.
Everyone whom the Father gives me
will come to me;
I will certainly not reject
anyone who comes to me,
because I have come from heaven,
not to do my own will,
but to do the will of him who sent me.
Now the will of him who sent me
is that I should lose nothing
of all that he has given to me,
but that I should raise it up
on the last day.
It is my Father's will
that whoever sees the Son
and believes in him
should have eternal life,
and that I should raise that person up
on the last day.
R. We need the joy of the Resurrection
in our hearts, we live this
Easter joy in our lives –
This is the Good News –
Jesus died and He has risen!
John 6: 44-51
'No one can come to me
unless drawn by the Father who sent me,
and I will raise that person up
on the last day.
It is written in the prophets:
They will all be taught by God;
everyone who has listened to the Father,
and learnt from him,
comes to me.
Not that anybody has seen the Father,
except him who has his being from God:
he has seen the Father.
In all truth I tell you,
everyone who believes has eternal life.
I am the bread of life.
Your fathers ate manna in the desert
and they are dead;
but this is the bread
which comes down from heaven,
so that a person may eat it and not die.
I am the living bread
which has come down from heaven.
Anyone who eats this bread
will live for ever;
and the bread that I shall give
is my flesh, for the life of the world.'

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

Priestly Newsletter — 2000 #1 — CD. — Christ is Our Strength — Fr. Edward Carter, S.J. read it the year he died. It is so beautiful. "This brief passage contains one of the greatest lessons of the spiritual life. As we progress along our spiritual journey, we become increasingly aware of how weak we are in our—selves, but how strong we are in Christ. To experience our weakness involves suffering. The degree and kind of suffering can vary. The suffering can include the experience of the classical dark night of the spirit as described by St. John of the Cross. One of the main purposes of the dark night is to make a person keenly aware of his or her helplessness without God." quote by Fr. Carter from the newsletter $10
