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.

                Given March 9, 2018

                R. Stop and have a moment with Jesus.

                Close your eyes –

                Like seeing your good friend.

                Jesus is like seeing our good friend
                    we love.

                Jesus loves us so much.

 

                R. The first commandment is

                    1. I, the Lord, am your God. You shall not have other gods besides me.
 

                We give our love to God.

                God loves us so very much.

                God wants us to love Him, to
                    serve Him and to know Him.

                God wants a relationship with
                    us. God wants to be our
                    friend. Friends enjoy each
                    other's company.

                Jesus has given us Himself in
                    the Eucharist. He comes to
                    us, Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity.

                Jesus: Now My beloved, I am not far
                    off from you at the moment. I
                    am a Person and I long to have a
                    relationship with you My beloved.
                    Open your heart now and be
                    sorry for all your offenses against
                    God and others.

                    Say the prayer as I have given
                    to you.

 

Prayer for Union with Jesus

Come to me, Lord, and possess my soul. Come into my heart and permeate my soul. Help me to sit in silence with You and let You work in my heart.

    I am Yours to possess. I am Yours to use. I want to be selfless and only exist in You. Help me to spoon out all that is me and be an empty vessel ready to be filled by You. Help me to die to myself and live only for You. Use me as You will. Let me never draw my attention back to myself. I only want to operate as You do, dwelling within me.

    I am Yours, Lord. I want to have my life in You. I want to do the will of the Father. Give me the strength to put aside the world and let You operate my very being. Help me to act as You desire. Strengthen me against the distractions of the devil to take me from Your work.

    When I worry, I have taken my focus off of You and placed it on myself. Help me not to give in to the promptings of others to change what in my heart You are making very clear to me. I worship You, I adore You and I love You. Come and dwell in me now.

-God's Blue Book, January 17, 1994

 

                Jesus: Live in My love.

                    My love is everlasting –

                Think of the words of this prayer,
                    all day, pray this prayer.

                    I am a God of miracles. I love
                you so much. Pray to know Me –
                Pray to do the will of My Father –
                make every waking moment a
                moment you are one with Me.

                    As I dwell more and more in
                your heart, know I want to be the
                King and Center of your heart. I am
                your ardent lover. Put no gods
                before Me. It offends Me greatly
                when you reject Me and turn to
                the darkness. I am your ardent
                friend and I love you. I long
                for this union with you. Read My
                letters of love in God's Blue Books.
                I have hand-picked them for you
                My beloved.

 

Come to me, Lord, and possess my soul. Come into my heart and permeate my soul. Help me to sit in silence with You and let You work in my heart.

 

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.

 

                    Jesus: Pray the Holy Spirit Novena I gave you.

 

 

                    Jesus: Pray the Shepherds of Christ prayers –
                    Consecrate your hearts to the Sacred Heart
                    and Immaculate Heart.
 

 

Excerpt from November 13, 1997 Rosary

The Crowning with Thorns

1. R. ...I know this white, because whenever I was going to Mass, the Eucharist would come out a little bit in this transparent color behind the Host and it would come up, maybe, about a fourth of the way and it would vary. And I’d wait for it and I would want it to come out, and it came out almost all the time. And what happened on first Friday, which was a great day of suffering, what came out on first Friday was this white Host, the same size as the Host, came out. So the white Host came out of the Host the same size and it’s a white that I can’t describe. You can say the white of a snow-capped mountain because I think the things that are His pure things, like of nature describe it better than anything that is man-made. But anyway, so here is the Host and then there’s this white Host that is the same size as the Host and it’s adorned in light all around it. And I went through like 3 days of great suffering and in those 3 days, one of the days this happened, but the same day, Fr. Carter got a message from Jesus that said that we were in a new phase and it was going to be wonderful. Children consecrating their hearts is wonderful. What is wonderful to God is souls that will be saved forever and ever. And so, I understand the white that He speaks about here when He says this –

Matthew 17: 2-5

There in their presence he was transfigured: his face shone like the sun and his clothes became as dazzling as light. And suddenly Moses and Elijah appeared to them; they were talking with him. Then Peter spoke to Jesus. ‘Lord,’ he said, ‘it is wonderful for us to be here; if you want me to, I will make three shelters here, one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.’ He was still speaking when suddenly a bright cloud covered them with shadow, and suddenly from the cloud there came a voice which said, ‘This is my Son, the Beloved; he enjoys my favour. Listen to him.’ 

R. And this is what I heard on August the 20th. The cross at St. Gertrude’s was totally illuminated and the Lord was transfigured on the cross and I heard this same thing. ‘This is my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased. Listen to him.’

2. R. And so, He sat on a mock throne and they spit on our King, the King of heaven and earth, Jesus. They spit on the King and they mocked Him, and they pounded into His head the thorns that they had crowned Him with and they laughed. Isn’t it awful? Yesterday, I felt like this: I went to pick up my son at school and I saw two people in the car. And I was having trouble getting into this spot and I was backing in and coming out and backing in and coming out and I just couldn’t get the car in there. And they were in their car and they were laughing and laughing and I felt like they were laughing at me. But they may not have been laughing at me. But anyway, just that little thing it just made me feel like - I don’t like people laughing at me. You know what I mean? It just doesn’t feel good. Well think of God, the Almighty God - God - and they are spitting on Him, pounding on His head. They’ve whipped Him, mercilessly, and now they were standing around and mocking Him and laughing at Him.

3. R. And this is what it says in Revelation again:

Revelation 7: 14-17

I answered him, 'You can tell me, sir.' Then he said, 'These are the people who have been through the great trial; they have washed their robes white again in the blood of the Lamb. That is why they are standing in front of God's throne and serving him day and night in his sanctuary; and the One who sits on the throne will spread his tent over them. They will never hunger or thirst again; sun and scorching wind will never plague them, because the Lamb who is at the heart of the throne will be their shepherd and will guide them to springs of living water; and God will wipe away all tears from their eyes.'

4. R. This is part of Fr. Carter’s Newsletter: “To Live in Christ Jesus”. This is a quote from John 10:11-15.

John 10: 11-15

I am the good shepherd:
the good shepherd lays down his life
   for his sheep.
The hired man,
   since he is not the shepherd
and the sheep do not belong to him,
abandons the sheep
as soon as he sees a wolf coming,
   and runs away,
and then the wolf attacks
   and scatters the sheep;
he runs away
   because he is only a hired man
and has no concern for the sheep.
I am the good shepherd;
I know my own
and my own know me,
just as the Father knows me
and I know the Father;
and I lay down my life for my sheep.

5. R. Is this not the message that He gives to us? Jesus said that this Church had the Father’s thumbprint on it. Do you notice the mural and how it’s shaped as a thumb on the top?

6. R. At the beginning of every newsletter that Fr. Carter writes is this quote that says, “I lay down My life for My sheep.” Now look at the mural. Does this not tell us, in this church as He hangs on the cross, in the mural on the crucifix and all the crucifixes that are around, that He laid down His life for His sheep? Is this not what we are asked to do with each other? Look at us. We have become one, one with each other. We are deeply rooted in our heart because He is teaching us what it means to be one body in Christ, with Christ the head. This is the love that we must have for one another as His family in the Shepherds of Christ Movement - that we love one another so deeply that we would lay down our lives for each other, that we are as one body ourselves, that I wouldn’t go out and talk about myself. I love all of you here. All of the members of Shepherds of Christ, I love them deeply. And we truly are one because we dwell and live in His Heart, but are we saints? No, we are not saints! We are human persons with tainted human natures loving God above all things and God is our God and we are His people and we are crying out to Him to help us to be more like Him. And I have said this in rosary after rosary after rosary. If we are perfect, we would all have to get up and walk out of here, if we have to be perfect to be in this Movement. And as we become more one, the imperfections that are inside of us come out, so that we can merge in oneness. We are seeing that we are entirely dependent on God. We beg for His grace. We are thankful for His grace. It is believable Fr. Carter says because it is happening. God is giving us grace. And it is in this humility that we will do the job. We are living in Him. We receive a sharing in His life in baptism. Our knowing and loving capacity is elevated in baptism. God is operating in us, and we can still fall, but it is by His Might that we can be better when we cooperate with the grace He gives us. He sits on His throne crowned with thorns and covered, a bloody mess. And in the end, it is as it says –

Revelation 7: 17

because the Lamb who is at the heart of the throne will be their shepherd and will guide them to springs of living water; and God will wipe away all tears from their eyes.’

R. This is what we are doing. Here is Fr. Carter’s Newsletter. Listen to this. It’s called, ‘To Live in Christ Jesus’ And he says –

From the Priestly Newsletter September/October 1997

Yes, the Good Shepherd has laid down His life for us. Through His life, His brutal and agonizing suffering and death on the cross, and His glorious resurrection, He has achieved new life for us. We truly live a new life in Jesus: “You have been taught that when we were baptized in Christ Jesus we were baptized in His death; in other words, when we were baptized we went into the tomb with Him and joined Him in death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead by the Father’s glory, we too might live a new life.” (Rom 6:3-4).

7. From the Priestly Newsletter September/October 1997

And again Paul speaks to us: “...wherever we may be, we carry with us in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus, too, may always be seen in our body.” (2 Cor 4:10).

8. R. This newsletter will majorly help to renew the Church and the world, as priests read this and consecrate their hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary and hear Jesus teach, teach through Fr. Carter’s writing.

Revelation 21: 1-4

Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; the first heaven and the first earth had disappeared now, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride dressed for her husband. Then I heard a loud voice call from the throne, ‘Look, here God lives among human beings. He will make his home among them; they will be his people, and he will be their God, God–with–them. He will wipe away all tears from their eyes; there will be no more death, and no more mourning or sadness or pain. The world of the past has gone.’ 

9. Hail Mary

10. Revelation 21: 22-27

I could not see any temple in the city since the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb were themselves the temple, and the city did not need the sun or the moon for light, since it was lit by the radiant glory of God, and the Lamb was a lighted torch for it. The nations will come to its light and the kings of the earth will bring it their treasures. Its gates will never be closed by day - and there will be no night there - and the nations will come, bringing their treasure and their wealth. Nothing unclean may come into it: no one who does what is loathsome or false, but only those who are listed in the Lamb’s book of life.

Song: I am the Bread of Life

                    end of excerpt


                Jesus: Oh My beloved. If you would
                    only listen to Me in these letters
                    and messages. You must learn
                    to listen. A person that becomes
                    more and more independent learns
                    to plug up their ears when others
                    speaks to them, because they don't
                    interact well with others. You
                    must learn to listen and reflect on
                    what I say here. At the Transfiguration
                    the voice of the Father was heard –
                    "This is My beloved Son, in
                    whom I am well pleased,
                    listen to Him."

                Listen to My Words of love.
                The writings I have given are
                great gifts to lift you up.

                R. The birds sang and I heard their
                    beautiful song – they comforted
                    my weary soul.

                Jesus: Many do not hear the birds
                    because they walk in darkness and
                    plug up their ears. The birds are
                    still singing, but they do not hear.

 

Excerpt from October 5, 1997 Rosary

Jesus Died on the Cross

6. R. And we will know truly someday that all that He gives to us is the truth. For He wants to be worshipped and loved and adored by the people. It will be an earth in which God will be their God and they will be His people and each one of you present here He has called to help to bring about this new earth. Though small in number it does not matter when the Might of God is behind us. And when we dwell in His Heart, He acts, in us, in this world.

Song: A Song from Jesus

7. Jesus: You will be taunted and pressed on. You will want to run away and you will want to give up. You must remain in Me to the bitter end. For it is in the end that it will be your endurance that will make the difference to so many souls. At this time you are being tried and tested and you are being taught, My beloved ones, for this is your testing ground. This is the stage that I have set to teach you the lessons that you will need to know to help to bring My Light to the darkness. Do not be afraid for I walk with you. As I walked on this earth, I walk with you this day in your every breath and your every heartbeat. I am so intimately united to you. You must open up your heart and let Me live in you.

R. Through Him, with Him and in Him in the unity of the Holy Spirit, we are one in Him with the Almighty God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit, that live and dwell within us, when we are in the state of grace.

8. R. And they worshipped the molten calf. There were so many things that they had for their gods and they thought that the Lord had turned His head the other way. But His head was straight up and down when I saw it on the crucifix. I saw His head straight. His head on the crucifixes are turned toward His shoulder but He sees all the deeds that men perform and He knows and reads their hearts and nothing will go unnoticed. For He is the Almighty God, a just God that will pay all rightfully according to their deeds. And He gives to us a great treasure and He gives to us a sharing in His Divine life and the treasure that He gives is treated with great indifference by these men, the creatures of this earth. For they worshipped a molten calf. But the secret is this word. Men will have the light and will know Him when they give their hearts to Mary’s heart. Mary is the woman clothed with the sun, adorned in light and Mary will take her children into this age of light. As we meditate on the mysteries of the rosary, we must focus on the lives of Jesus and Mary alive in our life today. When we read the Scriptures today the Word of God is living in us. Where as before we may have experienced it with much difficulty. It is alive in our hearts. We are fed with His Word.

Jesus: So when you are taunted and you are pressed on, My beloved ones, go to My Word and read the Word of God and I will refresh you and bring you light...

Jesus: But it is today, My beloved ones, that you will be pressed on by satan and it is in My grace you will be able to withstand the torture that he gives to you. You must come to the tabernacle. You must pray as frequently as possible. For you will be tested and tried and you will want to cry out and scream but you must not, not run away. If you lose your patience, you must come to Me. You must say that you are sorry. You must love and work with one another. You are My people, My little family. If you do not love, who will I send? You are My family. Who is My brother? Who is My Mother? Anyone who does the will of the Father.

R. We are brothers and sisters. We are brothers of Christ.

Sing: A Song from Jesus

R. Eve was taken from the side of the Adam and the sacramental life of the Church was born from the side of Christ as He hung on the cross.  end of excerpt

 

                Excerpt from Blue Book 17

From Fr. Edward Carter, S.J. Newsletter - To Live in Christ Jesus

At other times it is not so much selfishness which leads us to say no to God, it is rather fear. We hear God’s voice calling us higher. We hear His voice asking something which seems very difficult. We hear His voice asking something we had not at all expected. Yes, we hear all this-and we draw back. We draw back because we are afraid. We refuse God because our fear focuses our attention on what we are rather than on what God is. We look too much at our own weakness, rather than at God’s power which can transform our inadequacy into a mighty strength.

In all this Mary offers an example. Selfishness was totally foreign to her. She did not belong to herself. She belonged to God. She was not closed in upon herself. She was completely open to God. When God spoke, she listened. When God pointed the way, she followed. She realized that life is not a process a person masters by carefully mapping out one’s own self-conceived plans of conquest, but a mystery to be graduallyexperienced by being open to God’s personal and loving guidance.

Selfishness, then, did not close Mary off from God’s call. Neither did fear. God asked her to assume a tremendous responsibility. He asked her to be the Mother of Jesus. Mary did not engage in a process of false humility and say that such a great role was above her. She did not say that she did not have the proper qualifications for this awesome mission. Briefly, she did not waste time looking at herself, making pleas that she was not worthy, telling the angel he had better go look for someone else. No, Mary did not look at herself. Her gaze was absorbed in God. She fully realized that whatever God asked of her, His grace would accomplish. She fully realized that although she herself had to cooperate, this work was much more God’s than hers.

Mary’s words, then, truly sum up what is the authentic Christian response at any point of life, in any kind of situation: “I am the handmaid of the Lord,” said Mary, “let what you have said be done to me”.

People are Looking at Us. “You are the light of the world. A city built on a hill-top cannot be hidden. No one lights a lamp to put it under a tub; they put it on the lampstand where it shines for everyone in the house. In the same way your light must shine in the sight of men, so that, seeing your good works, they may give the praise to your Father in heaven” (Mt 5:14-16).

Jesus taught by word and action. He talked to huge crowds, to small groups, to various individuals. He talked about love and friendship, about joy and suffering, about life and death. He had a message to spread, His Father’s message, and He did not miss His opportunities. It was not enough for Him merely to talk about His Father’s message. He was also constantly teaching by the total event of His life, death and resurrection. Not only His words, but also His actions spoke out loud and clear. He not only talked about the love we should have for one another. He incarnated this teaching in the laying down of His own life for the salvation of all. His words spoke eloquently of brotherly love. So also did His bloody and bruised body nailed to a cross. His words sounded so convincing. The way He went about living could also pierce the hardest heart.

Jesus invites us to assist Him in the continuation of His teaching mission. The method of procedure remains the same; we, too, like Jesus before us, are to teach by both word and action. The opportunities for teaching by word are more numerous than we might expect. For it is not only bishops and priests and teachers of religious studies who teach by word. Parents, as they rear their children, have numerous opportunities to teach Jesus’ message. Friends talk about all sorts of things. If one is sincerely Christian, his or her friend will eventually know.

The opportunities to teach about Jesus by the way we act are even more numerous than are the occasions for variously speaking about the message of Jesus. People are looking at us. We cannot long hide the life-vision which thrusts us forward, which motivates so much of what we do. If we live according to the pleasure principle, this becomes evident. If we live according to the money principle, this also becomes manifest. If we are close followers and friends of Jesus, this too becomes clear to people. They will know by the way we work and play, by our attitude towards life and death, by our refusing to become bitter despite even great suffering, by the way we treat others, especially those who are poor, or ridiculed, or discriminated against, or passed over as unimportant and of little worth. If we are deeply Christian, Christ’s way of thinking and doing will necessarily affect our own way of thinking and doing.

We are called to project Jesus and His message through our own humanities. Either we do, or we don’t. Either we seize the numerous and daily opportunities for helping to preach Jesus by the way we live, or we do not. Either we respond to Jesus’ invitation to be a light for the world, or we do not. This invitation goes out to all, but to priests in a special way. Jesus, through Holy Orders, has given Himself to the priest in a most special way. If the priest, realizing Jesus’ precious love for him as this unique priest-companion, surrenders to Christ, this gives Him special joy. For the priest, because of his special union with Jesus, can be a light to the world in a most extraordinary way.   end of excerpt

               

                Excerpt from October 5, 1997 Rosary

                The Agony in the Garden

5. Jesus: I am the Good Shepherd and I give to you, My beloved ones, My beloved apostles, the command to pray for My priests. The prayers of ye holy souls will reach the Almighty God and He will answer them. Your holiness is not measured by the trials that you are experiencing. Your holiness is measured in your desire to continue to endure, to love God above all things, to help to bring about His Kingdom, for you will suffer far beyond any of your expectations on your way to help to bring souls to Me. For the devil will press and press on you. He will try you as never before and you will argue and you will fall to your knees and you will see your imperfections parade in front of your face. And if you run because you are not perfect, this world will suffer. You must come to the tabernacle everyday and spend this time with Me. If it is impossible, you must spend the time alone with Me. You will be tried far beyond any trials that you have experienced. You will argue with one another for satan will attempt to divide you and tear you apart at the seams. If you run away, who will I send? You are not perfect. You are imperfect instruments that I use, that I love dearly. You must be humble. You must admit your faults. You must be loving above all things for I will show you that you are dependent on Me. It is in grace that you will grow in holiness. You cannot be proud, for the proud heart will stay proud and will not become holy. The holy man, is the man, who admits his faults, who goes to confession, who above all things loves God and wants to do the will of the Father. Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth, as it is in Heaven. What will happen if you say no?

6. Jesus: For they were a willful race and they were rooted in pride and when they sinned, they covered up the sin and they hid the darkness within. My beloved ones, you are the ones that will wear the white robes. When you soil the garments that you wear, you come to the priests and you ask for forgiveness. For it is in purity, that you will unite to the Bridegroom of your soul. The more you pray with a pure heart, the more your prayers will weigh heavy in Heaven. Every moment it is important that you strive for purity. And as you try more and more to be pure, satan will attack you vehemently, to try to get you to sin, for your prayers are, mighty prayers, that come to the Almighty God and satan wants you to sin, for he does not want your prayers to be heard. You will be attacked, vehemently, by satan. He will try to get you to sin. You must keep your garments white and pure, washed in the Blood of the Lamb. And above all, the order must be, that of: love, your hearts rooted in love and humility, as you lead the world to the light, and to My love alive within you.

7. R. We are fed by the Word of God. It is the living Word, the living Word. And so we read the Word of God and it truly lives within our being. Deeper and deeper the words penetrate within our being. The Word is spoken many times in the Church today with lips that are hollow, that do not experience the Word, in their hearts. And so, Jesus would say, “They treat Me as a dead object”. He is alive and He feeds us with His Word and with Himself in the Eucharist and He is treated by many like He does not exist.

8.

Revelation 3: 1-4

I know about your behaviour: how you are reputed to be alive and yet are dead. Wake up; put some resolve into what little vigour you have left: it is dying fast. So far I have failed to notice anything in your behaviour that my God could possibly call perfect; remember how you first heard the message. Hold on to that. Repent! If you do not wake up, I shall come to you like a thief, and you will have no idea at what hour I shall come upon you. There are a few in Sardis, it is true, who have kept their robes unstained, and they are fit to come with me, dressed in white.

9.

Revelation 3: 5

Anyone who proves victorious will be dressed, like these, in white robes; I shall not blot that name out of the book of life, but acknowledge it in the presence of my Father and his angels.

R. Jesus promised St. Margaret Mary in the promises these things –

Promises of Our Lord to those devoted to His Sacred Heart

1. I will give them all the graces necessary in their state of life.

2. I will establish peace in their homes.

3. I will comfort them in all their afflictions.

4. I will be their refuge during life and above all in death.

5. I will bestow a large blessing on all their undertakings.

6. Sinners shall find in My Heart the source and the infinite ocean of mercy.

7. Tepid souls shall grow fervent.

8. Fervent souls shall quickly mount to high perfection.

9. I will bless every place where a picture of My Heart shall be set up and honored.

10. I will give to priests the gift of touching the most hardened hearts.

11. Those who promote this devotion shall have their names written in My Heart, never to be blotted out.

12. I promise you in the excessive mercy of My Heart that My all-powerful love will grant to all those who communicate on the first Friday in nine consecutive months the grace of final penitence; they shall not die in My disgrace nor without receiving their sacraments; My divine Heart shall be their safe refuge in this last moment.

R. Those who promote this devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus shall have their names written in His Heart never to be blotted out.

And then He says in the Revelation.

Revelation 3: 5-6

Anyone who proves victorious will be dressed, like these, in white robes; I shall not blot that name out of the book of life, but acknowledge it in the presence of my Father and his angels.

10. Hail Mary

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
