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.

                May 27, 2018 - Trinity Sunday

                R. The Light shines and comes in our
                houses. As we ate dinner the strong
                late day sun came into the window
                and bounced piercingly off a
                hardwood floor where we had to
                change our position because it
                was so bright.

                    I tried to sleep in a room where
                there was not a covering and
                lights were outside that bounced
                off of window frames etc. and
                found their way brightly into
                the room where I wanted
                darkness to sleep.

                    Light comes in and it is
                almost mysterious how we cannot
                touch it, whether the earth going around
                the sun in the sky or
                the lights outside a building
                coming in and bouncing off
                the woodwork etc.

                    Light like this is there, but
                we really don't touch it –

                    Light helps us see – Light
                helps us to have vision –
                Light is so important to that –

                    Think of light – think of a
                rainbow – think of the mystery
                of light –

                    Think of light as it is reflected –

                    What could we see without
                light – nothing.

                    Look at an electrical storm –
                where a flash of lightening opens
                the sky it seems, especially on
                a dark night and for a glimpse
                we see what is around us –
                but just for a glimpse lightening
                on a dark night lights up
                the surroundings.

                    This happened on the Epiphany
                in 2017. We drove down from
                Cincinnati to pray for the Epiphany
                as usual at 3:00 around the
                whole building were unexplainable
                streaks of light and rainbow streaks.

                    Here are pictures –


                R. When Mary appeared in Clearwater
                on 5ths as I did the prayers
                the window was covered with
                rainbow light – then a golden
                light began to show first from
                the bottom to top until it
                covered the whole window.
                Every 5th I would do a nursing
                home video, in the afternoon
                outside under the window
                and one 5th I was later in
                the day – The nursing home
                video 15 has some beautiful
                light changes –


Pictures May 5, 2001 as we prayed beginning at 6:20 pm.

                Given July 10, 2015

                R. We have been given so many gifts in baptism.
                If only we would realize this magnificent
                gift of sharing in His life. If only we
                realized what it meant to have an
                elevated knowing and loving capacity –
                God has given us this beauty to go
                beyond the natural capabilities and
                to know and love in this supernatural

                    Look at the ocean.




                R. Look at the Sunrise and Sunset


                R. Look at the baby

                R. Look at Our Lady of Clearwater


                R. Now envision as I saw Mary June 5, 2015.

                June 6, 2015 - Eve of Precious Body and Blood of Jesus

                Month of the Sacred Heart

                R. See high, see low –

                See as you desire –

                Our eyes are a wonderful gift given
                    to us from God

                We can open our eyes or close our
                    eyes –

                We can look straight ahead –
                    look high or
                    look low –

                    We can see with our eyes –

                    We can scan the scene from
                        right to left –

                    We can focus on trying to see the
                        big picture with our eyes –

                    We can drive a car and see with
                        other cars moving how to
                        go in union with them.

                We can watch a play at the theater
                but if it is boring we can close our
                    eyes and go to sleep.

                We can watch the Mass and see
                    the priest –

                What we see can make us cry –
                What we see can help lead us to action –

                What we see can help take us from danger
                What we see can lead us to a new endeavor –

                We can see a new born baby –

                We can see a person laid out in a coffin –

                We can read and learn with our eyes –

                Were not our eyes a gift given to us
                    by God –

                Last night Mary appeared to me in the
                    Virgin Mary building on the 5th –

                    She appeared in the deepest –
                    brightest light I cannot describe or
                        compare to any light I know –

                        it was beyond and

                    It's depth and intensity of light –

                        I cannot describe

                    She was beautiful and seeing her
                        face before me, in the mystical
                        was –

                        alive and different – it did not
                        remain the same –

                        She had given me messages –
                            prior to this intense apparition
                            of celestial beauty – I cannot
                            begin to describe

                        The messages will be transcribed and
                            published –

                        But then she appeared and she did
                            not speak at all –
                            It was the vision –

                The vision of intensity – I was so

                    wrapped in it and could not
                    say to lead the Hail Marys –

                    My physical abilities were
                        numbed as I was enveloped
                        in her vision before me –

                        the light beyond description –

                        the depth so deep and so very

                            real –

                        the lady as she was encased in

                            this celestial aura was

                            deep in that heavenly vision

                            a Mother alive in celestial
                            light –

                            in the front of the depth while
                                the light was never exhausted –
                                behind and around her

                A light it seemed deeper than the
                    ocean and farther than any
                    sea –

                    solid and bright with a light
                        unknown to me

                    And her beauty in celestial surroundings,

                        her beauty mystical – beyond anything
                        I have ever seen –

                    No breath or depth – no high or low,
                        no light can be a measure for

                        the opening to this window of

                        celestial beauty –

                    Forever – Forever – God tells us of
                        heaven –

                    A foreverness was this vision like
                        the scripture


1 Corinthians 2:9

"What no eye has seen and no ear has heard, what the mind of man cannot visualise; all that God has prepared for those who love him;"


                R. Did you ever see the sun dance on

                    the ocean, or a sun dressed
                    body of water –

                There is movement – like nothing
                    else you know –

                When she appeared this vision is
                    not static or like what we
                    see with regard its movement –

                    I see no movement
                    It is –
                    Ever changing, beauteous and without

                        a beginning or an end to what
                        I am seeing –

                    It is, I see no change, but it
                        is alive in beauty and
                        different entirely that I am
                        drawn into it and almost unable
                        to talk, to use my physical
                        things –

                I am in the intensity of this apparition –
                    in it and it is and it has

                    depth and light and beauty and is

                    alive –

                    I can't describe it at all –

                If I can see the sun dancing on a
                    body of endless water, can I
                    tell you of it so you can enjoy
                    the experience and try to describe
                    the movement, the light, the
                    depth – the sky that meets
                    way out in beautiful blue
                    against the silver waters dancing
                    in radiant light –

                You may identify with what you
                    have seen of this and enjoy it
                    with me, but

                The vision of Mary –
                the living appearance of her –
                    the light –

                    the Virgin Mother as she showed
                        herself in a celestial way
                        to me –

                    I cannot even find anything to
                        identify this with and

                    Yet it was so real –
                        so beautiful –
                        so that it captivated me deeply

                            to be enthralled in it –

                            I cannot describe

                But I know more of eternity –

                    that with depth and breath
                    we do not know or
                    comprehend –

                We are blind to the celestial reward,
                relationship with God in intense

                    purity and unity – eternally –

                We are on earth and we measure with

                    our spoons and ounces, we see

                    with eyes veiled

                And God is beyond and other and

                    yet He has given us Jesus Christ in

                    the Eucharist to come to us

                    and feed the sharing in His life

                    we have from baptism –

                If He spoke now – He would say

                    reach – reach and reach –
                    go out and spread the Good News –

                    Man is so stilted in his ways
                    and he can be so bolted to the
                    earth, but we were created
                    in the image and likeness of God –

                    created to reach to the heights –

                        to dig deeply into the Mystery –

                        to know that the unseen is real –

                        to not be stifled because we

                            stand in a cement sidewalk

                            wrapped in the beauty of our

                            own footprint –

                The footprints we follow are

                    those of the Son of God for we

                    were created in His

                    image and likeness

                The seen and the unseen –

                    Do we see at all beyond
                        our eyes –

                        the Mystery of God –

                        the Mystery of Jesus –

                        the Mystery of the Incarnation

                        the Mystery of the sacramental
                            life of the Church –

                        the Mystery of Jesus truly present

                            Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity

                            in the Eucharist

                Reach – Reach – Reach –

                See the unseen –

                Dig deep into the Heart of Jesus

                Beg for the Holy Spirit to fill us with

                    His gifts to see, to

                    understand, to know,

                    to love, to be holy,

                    to fear God and to be

                    full of wisdom and council –

                This is relationship of us –

                    human creatures with

                    the Divine God –

                This is about the gift of baptism –

                The sharing in Divine Life –

                This is about being nurtured

                    with the Bread of Life

                    the Eucharist and His Word –

                This is about the unseen and

                    the seen –

                This is about preparing ourselves

                    for the goal of eternal

                    happiness –

                Seeing God face to face –

                Being wrapped in the beatific vision –

                My people this is about Mary

                    appearing in the Virgin Mary building

                    and showing me last night –

                    her beauty that I cannot

                    even describe and

                    when she appeared that

                        way – she said nothing –

                        she just took me into

                        this beauty and I behold her

                            and what she showed

                            me and


                        in the end

                    R. How can I



                    We are earthly and

                    He is heavenly and

                        yet He wants to reveal
                            secrets of Himself to
                            us and have an intimate
                            relationship with us –

                Mary wants a personal relationship
                    with us –
                    She is our spiritual Mother –

                Open your eyes and your hearts to
                    God and to our Mother at Our Side

                end of excerpt


                R. See the moon shining on a lake
                on a moon light night –

                    How much greater is the gift
                God gives to us in baptism –
                beyond the beauty of what is natural.

                    Man is going down in many cases
                of his appreciation of what God has given.
                We need to reach beyond to know
                God deeper and deeper – to prepare
                for heaven –

                    Let us focus on the gift
                of baptism on our soul –

                    We see the imperfections of the deadly
                sins – how man is out of order
                when he sins – how Eve raised
                herself and wanted to be
                equal to God –

                    Come Holy Spirit Come enlighten the
                minds of us to see the gifts You
                give us and to seek this –

                From July 3, 2015 Rosary

Genesis 46: 1-7, 28-30

Jacob leaves for Egypt

So Israel set out with all his possessions. Arriving at Beersheba, he offered sacrifices to the God of his father Isaac. God spoke to Israel in a vision at night, ‘Jacob, Jacob,’ he said. ‘Here I am,’ he replied. ‘I am El, God of your father,’ he said. ‘Do not be afraid of going down to Egypt, for I will make you into a great nation there. I shall go down to Egypt with you and I myself shall bring you back again, and Joseph’s hand will close your eyes.’ So Jacob left Beersheba. Israel’s sons conveyed their father Jacob, their little children and their wives in the waggons Pharaoh had sent to fetch him. 

    Taking their livestock and all that they had acquired in Canaan, they arrived in Egypt—Jacob and all his offspring. With him to Egypt, he brought his sons and grandsons, his daughters and granddaughters—all his offspring.

Joseph welcomes them

Israel sent Judah ahead to Joseph, so that Judah might present himself to Joseph in Goshen. When they arrived in Goshen, Joseph had his chariot made ready and went up to Goshen to meet his father Israel. As soon as he appeared he threw his arms round his neck and for a long time wept on his shoulder. Israel said to Joseph, ‘Now I can die, now that I have seen you in person and seen you still alive.’


Psalm 37: 3-4, 18-19, 27-28, 39-40

Put your trust in Yahweh and do right, 
make your home in the land and live secure. 
Make Yahweh your joy 
and he will give you your heart’s desires.

The lives of the just are in Yahweh's care,
their birthright will endure for ever;
they will not be put to shame when bad times come,
in time of famine they will have plenty.

Turn your back on evil and do good,
you will have a home for ever,
for Yahweh loves justice
and will not forsake his faithful.

The upright have Yahweh for their Saviour,
their refuge in times of trouble;
Yahweh helps them and rescues them,
he will rescue them from the wicked,
and save them because they take refuge in him.


Matthew 10: 16-23

Look, I am sending you out like sheep among wolves; so be cunning as snakes and yet innocent as doves.

Missionaries will be persecuted

‘Be prepared for people to hand you over to sanhedrins and scourge you in their synagogues. You will be brought before governors and kings for my sake, as evidence to them and to the gentiles. But when you are handed over, do not worry about how to speak or what to say; what you are to say will be given to you when the time comes, because it is not you who will be speaking; the Spirit of your Father will be speaking in you. 

    ‘Brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child; children will come forward against their parents and have them put to death. You will be universally hated on account of my name; but anyone who stands firm to the end will be saved. If they persecute you in one town, take refuge in the next; and if they persecute you in that, take refuge in another. In truth I tell you, you will not have gone the round of the towns of Israel before the Son of man comes.


                R. We see Joseph united to
                his father –

                They embraced each other and cried –

                Think of how wonderful it would
                be to be united to God in the
                beatific vision.

Excerpt from the Mass Book

December 17, 1995


    I long to unite in the deepest union with Him in the Eucharist. I long for the Mass. I long for Thee, oh God. My every moment, I join as I did to You December 15 under the cross, where I felt Your presence. You whisked me away, and I was totally absorbed in that moment of celestial union with You. For that time, I existed only in You, in the deepest union, and I was in this moment existing in You. The earth stopped, and I touched the heavens, all my bodily cares were existent in You. I existed in Your Divinity, my being was in You. There was no desire or wish or wanting, for in that moment, I had all I wanted in You. I was satisfied and wanted nothing but to remain in that embrace. You were the Being, and my being existed in You, but I was only as I was in You - merged in You, knowing and being in Your Divinity and being so full as to feel complete in myself.

    You are so enormous, and You surrounded me in a burning embrace, the presence of red fire. I was not little, or "nothing", but existed in this enormous power and being so complete!

    I touched eternity, and in that embrace, I knew all the waiting was worth the glory. You enveloped my being, and I was truly merged in the Divine Presence. I was merged in Your being. I existed IN You, with You, in the highest union with You, although I knew I was still distinct from You.

    I was fused and absorbed in You, feeling complete and satisfied. To describe this union is far beyond any work of my pen and paper. I pray for the reader of this page to receive the grace to share this experience with Him, I will now live for this union-to be forever merged In Him, to be One in Him, to reach higher perfection as I exist in Him, for He takes the lowly and gives to them a sharing in Himself. He merges with us and we exist in Him. The word "in" - I could write pages about. I long for the deepest union with Him, where I am swept up in the heavenly embrace of the Divine God, and I am IN Him.

    This is heaven on earth: to be merged as one with Divinity, although remaining distinct from God, to take our feeble hearts, our lowly status and to unite ourselves with the Divine, Almighty, powerful God and in this union to be meshed with Him, that His power dominates and our humanity reaches its heights of fulfillment in this union, in this oneness with Him.

    The word I have looked for is "oneness." I understand some of the meaning of the words "One in Him." Oneness is the word to describe this union of our humanity with His Divinity. The depth to which we could meditate on oneness with God is incomprehensible. In that moment, the earth stood still, and He, my Divine Lover, the Bridegroom of my soul, took me to Himself, and I knew the embrace of the Divine God.

    Nothing on the face of this earth can describe our union with Divinity. Oh, good God, that creatures are so ungrateful regarding Your divine love. I am so sorry. Let me help make reparation to Your adorable Heart. Please unite with me now that I may more deeply love Thee.

    Oh, Divine Lover of my soul, let me help make reparation to Your adorable Heart for the neglect and indifference against You.

Song from Jesus: I come to you with greatest love. I am your loving Savior. I am your God. I died for you. I come to you this day.

    He allowed me to experience such pain in my heart - wanting Him so badly, so many times-and then on Dec. 15, 1995 - He gave Himself to me in the deepest union.

    Nothing satisfies the soul but Him. He wants the nuns and priests to love Him. He chose them to spread His love.

    Souls are hungry. They will only be fed with His burning love. Priests need to talk about Jesus' love for us from the pulpit. Priests need hearts burning for love of Jesus. This will feed the hungry souls - lip service love doesn't do it.

    He is alive today. He is a Person. He wants us to love Him.

end of December 17, 1995



                R. Come Holy Spirit fill our souls with You,
                    with Your gifts –
                    with wisdom
                    with love and song –

                God is joy –

                God has chosen us –

                Handmaids and servants are married to God
                    and that is something!

                What a gift –

                God has infinite power!
                God is Light!
                God is Almighty!

                God wants to be known –
                    are you spreading this
                    gift to the world!

                Are you celebrating?

                Are you thanking God for Mary's

                God deserves worship –
                God deserves love –
                God deserves song and praise!

                We have been blessed, gifted,
                    loved into existence by God.

                Come Holy Spirit Move in us – awaken
                    love for God deep in our
                    heart and soul –
                    fill us with Your grace –

                God is a gift giver to us –
                    do we thank Him for such
                    a precious gift, as the
                    gifts He gives us!

                We are not to be closed up,
                    locked shut, afraid to
                    sing, to stop being frozen –
                    the love of God impels us
                    to let go – God is filling
                    our soul with greater life –

                We are to worship Him with a
                    heart on fire for love of Him –

                Love is to communicate with
                    God, with others, to know
                    oneself –

                God wants this communication
                    with Him –
                    heartfelt love

                Do you ever see fireworks –
                    wow –
                    at amusement parks,
                    at ballgames they can
                    do them daily – every time there is
                    a game –

                We owe God – owe God – praise,
                    honor, devotion, thanksgiving –

                Yes, Jesus talks about the stiff –
                    the caved-in, closed down –

                God the Father loved us so much He sent
                    His Son into the world –
                    Jesus took flesh out of
                        love for the souls –

                    Jesus suffered –
                    Jesus was treated like an
                        enemy –

                Jesus withstood this in giving love
                    to us –

                If we were created in the image
                    and likeness of Jesus – how
                    can anybody disrespect
                    the exposed Eucharist and
                    wouldn't they make
                    reparation to God for all
                    the abuse, neglect, lack
                    of heartfelt love before
                    the tabernacle, at Mass.

                Remember to keep holy the Sabbath
                    day. Satan tempts some people
                    to skip Church and do nothing but
                    skip Jesus on Sunday.

                Sunday is a day to be in the right
                    place – communication and love
                    and respect given to Jesus –
                    adoring Jesus –
                    worshipping Jesus –
                    loving Jesus –

                Just for love given to Jesus –

                God demands relationship
                    with Him first and others
                    as ourselves.

                We have a duty toward God
                    and neighbor –
                    to love them.

                Song: I Am a God of Justice


                R. It is right and just to give God
                    His due!

                We will be judged on this!

                We are to be thankful to our
                    parents for what they did
                    for us –

                We are to be thankful to the
                    Church, the priests,
                    the saints for all they

                We are to give in our life to
                    the future generations
                    like what was done for us.

                    We cannot say living life with
                a pouty look is in the image of
                Jesus. The "poor me" attitude is
                not what God wants. The angry
                person is not living and loving,
                forgiving, being accountable
                and responsible.

                Actions are to be for good.

                Passions are for loving God,
                    God's will –

                Not in anger to pout and tear
                    people apart and punish
                    our brother – that's
                    not the Gospel message –

                    We are to try to repay
                our parents for what they did
                for us – which we can't do,
                but we are grateful to God
                for giving us parents, grateful
                to God for all they did for us.

September 4, 2004


As I kneel before the crucifix each day, either before a actual crucifix or one in my mind, let us ask ourselves those questions posed to us by Ignatius Loyola, "What have I done for Christ?" "What am I now doing for Christ?" "What ought I to do for Christ?"


                R. God is Almighty –
                God is above us –
                God is to be honored, adored.
                God is great –
                We are to give God glory –


4 Days Before Fr. Carter's Death


From The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius
    by Louis J. Puhl, S.J. p. 12

                        23. FIRST PRINCIPLE AND FOUNDATION

                            Man is created to praise, reverence and serve God 
                        our Lord, and by this means to save his soul.


                R. Trying to be good –

                Giving others a good example –
                    the Shepherds of Christ is to teach
                    people about God – about Jesus.

                Sing: Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.
                    As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

                This is selfish the
                    "Me - Me - Me approach"

                We should be moving toward
                    oneness in our relationship
                    with God, others and loving
                    ourselves – Created by God!

                God never breaks His Covenant!

                We saw in the readings all the
                    way back to Abraham –
                    how he was blessed –
                    Abraham was a person of faith –

                We see Jacob believed –

                We see Joseph and how he was
                    treated and what he did
                    because God blessed him.

                We are created in the image and
                    likeness of God –

                    Wow –

                When we are faithful to God
                    we will be blessed.

                A common theme is going
                    into Egypt coming
                    out of Egypt –

                Famine was bad so they went
                    to Egypt –

                We see God brings good out
                    of evil –

                God is perfect harmony –

                A person is to learn harmony,
                    oneness, communication
                    with God and others –

                A house divided against itself will not stand –

                Look at all the division in
                    families –
                    divorces –
                    dysfunctional families –

                Man because of the fall of Adam and Eve,
                    has a distorted vision of
                    God, others and himself.

                God created an orderly, serene
                    beautiful, harmonious
                    world –

                Because of the sin of Adam and Eve,
                    blame enters the world –
                    Loss of personal responsibility –

                Grace moves us toward God –

                Concupiscence moves a person to sin.

                Read Chapter 5 Romans.

                God calls and we respond –

                Or we can rebel against Him –

                We have a free will –

                We have a responsibility before God –

                Sin has its effects beyond ourselves,
                    Jesus paid for our sin –

                God created the world, the seen and unseen,
                    out of nothing!

                Sing: Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.
                    As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

                Dear God outpour Your
                    gifts to us –

                A person of wisdom – like Betty
                    knew the value of suffering.

                May we see Jesus' Bloodied face
                    and see Jesus' face of love.

                We know even in suffering
                    there is joy because
                    it draws us closer to Jesus.

                Jesus came and Jesus showed
                    us He endured pain –

                God allows us to suffer

                Through the pierced Heart of Jesus
                    the Church was born –

                We see the saints –

                God gives us the saints to

                The saints were filled with
                    joy in suffering –

                Abraham rejoiced at the
                    promises God made –
                    even though it was
                    for his descendants –
                    centuries later –

                Love for God endures suffering
                    in joy –

                We are to lead souls to the
                    heart of Jesus –

                We are to praise our Creator –

                Because of sin there is disorder.

Romans 8: 5-9

Those who are living by their natural inclinations have their minds on the things human nature desires; those who live in the Spirit have their minds on spiritual things. And human nature has nothing to look forward to but death, while the Spirit looks forward to life and peace, because the outlook of disordered human nature is opposed to God, since it does not submit to God's Law, and indeed it cannot, and those who live by their natural inclinations can never be pleasing to God. You, however, live not by your natural inclinations, but by the Spirit, since the Spirit of God has made a home in you. Indeed, anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him.


                R. We do not have the right
                    to use creatures in pride
                    and anger and jealousy
                    this is disordered –

                Jesus wants us to live
                    ordered lives –
                    we are to help renew
                    the Church and the world –

                The virtues and gifts produce order.

                We see the fruits of the Holy Spirit
                    charity, joy, peace, patience,
                    benignity (kindness), goodness,
                    long-suffering, mildness,
                    faith, modesty, continency,
                    and chastity.

                Jesus shows us pain –
                Jesus shows we will have it –

                What is justice

                    To give what is one's

                    To be unjust destroys
                order and causes many to
                be angry.

                    Being in the right place
                at the right time –

                    Pride puts a person in dominance
                        for dominance sake –

                    Anger – held out, against an innocent
                        other is wrong

                    Envy – puts oneself about trying to
                        bring another down for doing good acts.

                    We owe to God our gratitude for
                what God has given us.

                    A child owes gratitude to their

                    We owe gratitude to our parents.

                    We have a duty to pass on what
                others have helped us to have, what
                God wants us to pass on to those who
                came after us.

                May 27, 2018

                R. Jesus is the Light of the World –

                Today is the Feast of the Holy Trinity –

                    What a Mystery –


Excerpt from Response to God's Love by Fr. Edward Carter, S.J.

    ... In reference to Christianity, God himself is the ultimate mystery. Radically, God is completely other and transcendent, hidden from man in his inner life, unless he chooses to reveal himself. Let us briefly look at this inner life of God.

    The Father, in a perfect act of self-expression, in a perfect act of knowing, generates his son. The Son, the Word, is, then, the immanent expression of God's fullness, the reflection of the Father. Likewise, from all eternity, the Father and the Son bring forth the Holy Spirit in a perfect act of loving.

    At the destined moment in human history, God's self-expression, the Word, immersed himself into man's world. God's inner self-expression now had also become God's outer self-expression. Consequently, the mystery of God becomes the mystery of Christ. In Christ, God tells us about himself, about his inner life, about his plan of creation and redemption. He tells us how Father, Son, and Holy Spirit desire to dwell within us in the most intimate fashion, how they wish to share with us their own life through grace. All this he has accomplished and does accomplish through Christ.

Excerpt from April 19, 2003

Messenger:            I would speak of the Holy Saturday liturgy, but
                            all the words are in the liturgy it 
                            is in the depth of my soul
                            the paschal mystery DEATH - RESURRECTION
                            I love the exultant I used to sing it on
                            Holy Saturday, I love every word, I love
                            all the readings and I love the light and

                            Oh God our beloved ——

                            LIGHT the earth with the fire
                                of your love

                            THANK YOU FOR

                          GIVING US THIS

                          SHARING IN YOUR

                          LIFE —

                                Oh Lights of heaven —

                              Oh night so richly blessed —

                              Oh Savior You gave Your

                                  Blood for me —

                              Oh God I love You.


                                Oh Lights of heaven ——

                              shine on this earth tonight —

                              oh that men's hearts would be


                           Oh God, I love you, Amen.

God said, ‘Let there be light,’ and there was light.

Walk in the Way of the Light (excerpt)

May 9, 1994 After Communion

Jesus: Walk in My way, My dear children. Walk. Your feet carry you down the road. Follow the road of the Master. If you take a bad turn, get back on the road. I am leading. I am waiting. I am walking with you where you walk. I never leave you. You move away from Me. I stay steadfastly by you.

Oh, child, be humble. Do not let pride and anger eat at your heart. When you are wrong, admit it and do My Will. I am calling you to follow Me. Follow My path. It is the only way to your happiness and peace of mind. Wherever you go, My sweet one, you never travel alone. I am with you. Love, love, love. Do not let Satan work in your head.

If I am telling you to do something, do it, even if it is unpleasant. This is what teaches you the way of the Lord. The more you obey Me, the more you hear Me. I am God. I do not necessarily communicate as you do. I may use your senses, but I do not need them to talk to you. I do not need words. I give you promptings. You know when I speak to you and you know you must follow.

Open yourselves up to Me. Pray to be open and to know how to listen to Me. I am God and I want to tell you all you need to know. No one can speak to you as I do in your heart. Come and be with Me in silence and let Me talk to you. I love you so, dear ones. I will never steer you wrong.  end of excerpt

    Eyes are the Doorway to the Soul

                    Jesus speaks:

                    "What is important is how your
                    heart is, how My light is
                    coming out of your eyes.
                    The eyes are the windows
                    of the soul. My soul
                    wants to permeate you and
                    shine ..."

                    Mary: "Light America is found in
                    obedience to the commandments
                    of God – Oh America –
                    let your light shine to the
                    world - America –
                    love – love – love"


                From the Mass Book

                    October 15, 1995

                    R. "The interior life can be life
                    or death, light or darkness,
                    a place of peace or a place
                    of fear. It depends on the
                    heart of the person. We must
                    stay rooted in Him."


                March 26, 2003

                R. "He was adorned in light, the
                altar beneath shown with
                the brightest light and the cross
                behind was entirely silhouetted

                    and the Heart of Jesus..."


                September 20, 2017

                Jesus: "You are My light, shining in

Picture of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

A City on a Hill Shines to the World

February 23, 1994 5:30 a.m.

Jesus: I am the light of the world. A city on a hill will shine to the world. You at the Center will be this city when you are filled to the brim with the love of Jesus. What power, what might, to have each person a personal spouse of Jesus Christ! This is the light to the darkened world. The love of Jesus radiates from the very being of those who love Him. What light when all together are lifted by His love abounding deep within their breasts!

    I am the Way, the Truth and the Life. My life is the life inside that cannot be contained. It is bursting and budding forth. My life is the real life. To possess the life of Christ within your breast! Such power! I am the city set on a hill that will stand united and shine to this world. You at this Center will be this city. You will be the true Center that places the mark on this world.

    The love of Christ, abounding deep within the breasts of all, will be the power and the might. Pray the Prayer for Union with Jesus. I will operate in the hearts of all there and minister to My sick world. I am the Heart of Jesus. I am on fire with love of each and every soul. When My love is found in all the hearts there, the light of God will shine to this world!

    You are the city, set on a hill, that shines to the darkened world. I will light the world with the love of Jesus that shines in the hearts of those who are fed there. My light is so bright. My power is endless. You are the light to the dark world. You contain the mighty medicine to bring My sick ones to Me. You will bring so many back to Me and My intense love, burning so brightly for all!

    I am the power. I am the might. He who abides in Me will have the light of life. I give Myself to you that you will live. You will radiate My presence from your very being. My light is the brightest light. I will live in the hearts of all who come to you for their feeding. Enkindle in them the love for My most Sacred Heart. It is on fire for love of you. It cannot be contained. It will live in all hearts who come to you to be fed.

    You are the key to enkindle this burning love of Jesus in the hearts of so many. Many will know Jesus through your love of Me. Read these letters every day for I am truly speaking to you here. I love each child so dearly and want to have an intimate union with that child. Teach all about the burning love of Jesus. Read My messages with your heart on fire so you can tell all of My ardent love for them.

    I long to be close to them. I am a person. I am God, on fire for love of My people. Bring all to the ardent love of Jesus. Mary is by My side constantly. Where I am, she is there. She wants all to be led to My ardent, longing love. Teach all about My love. Fill them so they are overflowing in their hearts. This is the mighty medicine. It is My letter of intense, ardent love for My people.

    I am truly here, little ones. I am Jesus, Son of the Living God. I will live strongly in the hearts of all who come to you. You will be the key. Focus on your intense love of Me. Read My letters as a cookbook for intimacy with Me. My love waits for each person and I tell you here how to be close to Me. I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus on fire for love of you. I am longing for you to come and be with Me in silence. I will give you all you need.

    I am the Alpha. I am the Omega. I am your all. I am God, one, true and magnificent, and I come to you with ardent love in Holy Communion and in the tabernacle. I am present, Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity. I am waiting. Our love affair waits and it depends on you. I am there and I am waiting. You keep us apart.

    Tell them how I long for them and have all they need. The love of Christ will light their city. You will stand as the lighted city in darkness. My love will be that by which you light this dark world. Oh, such power, such might! The love of God will reign in the hearts of all you touch. You are My vessel to draw this world to the love of Jesus.

    Read and study My letters and be taught about My ardent love. I am Jesus Christ and I am teaching you about My love on fire for all. Come and be powered by the hand of God. My love will rock the world off its rocker when it reigns in the hearts of those who come to you. I love you so! You are My beloved. I will use you to light My dark world. You will shine as candles in the darkest night and you will be the instruments I use to light their wicks. I am God and I love them so dearly!

    This is My love for all. Power and might will shine forth on the land. I am the brightest light. Look into the light for the light. Look into the arms of Jesus. I will light this world through you. Alleluia. And the angels sang and the choirs of heaven were heard for the earth proclaimed the Love of Jesus. Alleluia  end of excerpt


February 23, 1994 - I Died for You

Jesus: ...Listen and preach My love and emotion here. Priests will create little cities, little cities in each church to spread the light of Christ to this sick world. Each priest can create his own little city, a powerhouse of God's love. God has all the power. His power is endless. It never runs out. It is might. You have no power except through Him. Churches filled with the intimate love of Jesus will be powerhouses...

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
