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.

                R. Jesus told His disciples to go out and to preach
                    to all the nations – to convert them –
                    He told them to get busy.

                Jesus went to prepare a place for us.

                In the Father's house there are many mansions.

                God tells us to seek what is above –

                Jesus has prepare a place for us.

                The Father says

Matthew 17: 5

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.’ 


Apostles Creed

I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended into hell; on the third day he arose again from the dead; he ascended into heaven; and is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from there he will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Catholic Church, the communion of Saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.


                R. We must lead a spiritual life focused on Christ –
                    following in the footprints of Jesus –

                We see Jesus dramatically taken into heaven –
                    we are being told our true home is
                    not on earth –

                If we live the way God has taught us –
                If we live following Jesus –
                We will end up in our Father's House –

                God has a place prepared for those who
                    love and serve Him. Heaven is
                    our eternal home –

                This place in heaven is full of love –
                    We don't want to lose this –

                We must live in the truth –

                Seek what will bring us eternal life –

                Live to develop our spiritual life in Jesus.


                Given May 22, 2017 - Feast of St. Rita

                R. Dear God we are called to show the
                love of God to one another, to live our
                lives in union with You. True freedom
                is in this, that we live for Christ.

                    We are living stones in the Church –
                our lives are rooted in faith, we live
                rooted in Christ. We live in the Holy Spirit.
                Jesus is the way, the truth and the life.
                We are not to let our hearts be troubled.

                    We are rooted in Jesus, our Master, our Savior,
                Jesus who died for us and redeemed us with
                His precious Blood. We are precious to God.
                We keep our eyes on our heavenly home, we are
                here to prepare for this.

                    Jesus came and He died and He went to
                prepare a place for us. A person may be building
                a house and they store their furniture in
                the transition and move their family to
                a temporary place, it can belong to
                someone else and they are waiting until
                the house is built. It can be a long process,
                but they are waiting for the men to build their house.

                    Jesus has gone before us. He has prepared
                a place for us. Jesus is the way, the truth
                and the life.

                    We know Jesus, we live in Him and
                we know the Father too –

John 14: 6-12

Jesus said: I am the Way; I am Truth and Life.
No one can come to the Father
    except through me.
If you know me,
    you will know my Father too.
From this moment you know him
    and have seen him.

    Philip said, 'Lord, show us the Father and then we shall be satisfied.' Jesus said to him, 'Have I been with you all this time, Philip, and you still do not know me?

'Anyone who has seen me
    has seen the Father,
so how can you say,
    "Show us the Father"?
Do you not believe
that I am in the Father
    and the Father is in me?
What I say to you
    I do not speak of my own accord:
it is the Father, living in me,
    who is doing his works.
You must believe me when I say
that I am in the Father
    and the Father is in me;
or at least believe it
    on the evidence of these works.
In all truth I tell you,
whoever believes in me
will perform the same works
    as I do myself,
and will perform even greater works,
because I am going to the Father.


                R. Saul was converted, but the Apostles were
                still afraid of him. We can see a person who
                is for God works for God to build the Kingdom of God –
                They are for God. A person can choose to
                listen to satan and become an enemy to God.
                They oppose the will of God and fight those
                working for God and try to make things
                happen to catch them in a snare.
                Why would someone do this if they
                realized we are here and God has a place
                He has prepared for those who love and serve Him.


1 John 3: 18-24

our love must be not just words 
    or mere talk, 
but something active and genuine.
This will be the proof
    that we belong to the truth,
and it will convince us in his presence,
even is our own feelings condemn us,
that God is greater than our feelings
    and knows all things.

My dear friends,
if our own feelings do not condemn us,
we can be fearless before God,
and whatever we ask
we shall receive from him,
because we keep his commandments
and do what is acceptable to him.
His commandment is this,
that we should believe
    in the name of his Son Jesus Christ
and that we should love one another
as he commanded us.
Whoever keeps his commandments
remains in God, and God in him.
And this is the proof
    that he remains in us:
the Spirit that he has given us.


John 15: 1-8

I am the true vine, 
and my Father is the vinedresser.
Every branch in me that bears no fruit 
he cuts away, 
and every branch that does bear fruit 
    he prunes 
to make it bear even more.
You are clean already, 
by means of the word 
    that I have spoken to you. 
Remain in me, as I in you. 
As a branch cannot bear fruit all by itself, 
unless it remains part of the vine, 
neither can you unless you remain in me. 
I am the vine, 
you are the branches. 
Whoever remains in me, with me in him, 
bears fruit in plenty; 
for cut off from me you can do nothing. 
Anyone who does not remain in me 
is thrown away like a branch
—and withers; 
these branches are collected 
    and thrown on the fire 
and are burnt. 
If you remain in me 
and my words remain in you, 
you may ask for whatever you please 
and you will get it. 
It is to the glory of my Father 
    that you should bear much fruit 
and be my disciples. 


                R. Building – the Apostles were spreading
                the Church – they lived for Christ –
                not opposing Him. We see how Saul was
                persecuting the Church and trying to
                tear it down for failure and God
                knocked him down and Paul then
                was converted and all He did and
                wrote –

                    Paul and Barnabas traveled and proclaimed
                the message of Jesus, the Good News and
                so many were converted. They traveled
                all over proclaiming the Good News
                and the Church spread.


Revelation 21: 1-5

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.’ 

    Then the One sitting on the throne spoke. ‘Look, I am making the whole of creation new. Write this, "What I am saying is trustworthy and will come true."


                R. This reading gives us encouragement.
                Jesus went to prepare a place for us.
                John tells us to love one another –
                Jesus said

John 13: 34

I give you a new commandment: love one another; you must love one another just as I have loved you.


                R. We are encouraged to follow Jesus,
                He is our Master. Satan goes about like
                a roaring lion - looking for someone
                to devour. Jesus tells us – we must
                love –

                    The devil tells people to be jealous and
                prideful and envious and angry and
                see their brothers as enemies. The devil
                wants division and chaos and confusion.
                The devil keeps working on a soul and they
                give into him and walk in deeper and deeper

                    Jesus came to teach us love – to love
                our enemies, to spread love. Jesus came
                to tell us to follow Him. Jesus is the Light
                of the world. The soul following Jesus
                sees light – they walk as Jesus wants
                them to walk – in truth – in
                building the Kingdom of God – in spreading
                the Kingdom of God –

                    They are filled with faith and believe
                in God. They live as sons of God.
                At the transfiguration the voice of the
                heavenly Father was heard
                "This is My beloved Son in whom I
                am well pleased, Listen to Him."

                Following Jesus as a son of God
                    brings us light and joy even
                    in suffering.

                We celebrate resurrection – we
                    live the life, death and resurrection
                    of Jesus in our lives.

                We are followers of Christ!

                Jesus suffered for us. God loves us so much.

                The Apostles spread the Word of God –
                they believed in it.

                We can see today, if a person refuses
                to do anything to spread the Good News
                and works against it – they stop
                what God wants and called them
                to do.

                Fr. Carter tells us how Jesus called him to
                    do this Ministry – he spread prayer
                    chapters in every state – He worked
                    hard to spread the Blue Books –
                    he spread 18,000,000 Priestly Newsletter
                    in books and loose in the 6 years
                    he lived.

                These men in the early Church had faith
                    and believed in the Mission –
                    Mary appeared on the building
                    in Clearwater to spread this
                    message. Jesus called the 13ths and 5ths,
                    the retreats in China and Florida.
                    I believe in all Jesus told me and
                    Fr. Carter to do as founder and

                    I have seen Mary appear to me for
                    23 years now in both Florida
                    and China and at Our Lady of the
                    Holy Spirit Center and Immaculata –

                When Jesus appeared on the cross December 5, 1996,
                    12 days before Mary appeared in
                    Clearwater –
                    Jesus dying on the cross said
                        "No one was listening".

December 5, 1996

R. On December 5, 1996, Our Lord appeared to me at Holy Cross-Immaculata Church, after Mary had appeared on most of the 5ths since July 5, 1994. Our Lord now appeared, dying on the cross. His withered body was horrifying to me. I cried and looked at Him in horror.

    This lasted about twenty minutes. It looked as if He could exert no effort, but His jaw moved and moved and moved. It was a big movement as His mouth moved. I heard no words. I was sickened.

    I was horrified at the sight of His weakness, the vision I saw and I cried from the depth of my soul as I watched I could hardly stand it.

    It was in the church, Holy Cross-Immaculata. He appeared on this crucifix. It was horrifying for me. I was in such anguish and tears. I know this experience so well, He implanted it in my soul. This was after Mary appeared for 2 years and 4 months on the 5ths. Jesus appeared on the 2 1/2 year anniversary on the crucifix.

    At the traditional rosary (I had done them now for 2½ years of 5ths) that evening at 6:30 with all the Shepherds of Christ people there, He said He moved His mouth because no one was listening.

                R. We are suffering now more than ever.
                    We need to have faith and spread
                    this message Jesus and Mary gave us –
                    Spread the Blue Books, the Mighty
                    Medicine, call the people to the
                    5ths and 13ths.

                Christ died for our sins and He rose
                so that we could live a new life.

John 14: 23

Jesus replied:

Anyone who loves me will keep my word,
and my Father will love him,
and we shall come to him
and make a home in him.


                R. This is so beautiful –

                    This is the Lord's Farewell Discourse
                at the Last Supper.

John 14: 15-23

If you love me
    you will keep my commandments.
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.
I shall not leave you orphans;
I shall come to you.
In a short time
    the world will no longer see me;
but you will see that I live
and you also will live.
On that day
you will know that I am in my Father
and you in me and I in you.
Whoever holds to my commandments
    and keeps them
is the one who loves me;
and whoever loves me
    will be loved by my Father,
and I shall love him
    and reveal myself to him.'

Judas--not Judas Iscariot--said to him, 'Lord what has happened, that you intend to show yourself to us and not to the world?' Jesus replied:

Anyone who loves me will keep my word,
and my Father will love him,
and we shall come to him
and make a home in him.

                R. Step by Step the Church grew because
                of the Acts of the Apostles. They
                believed – they spread the Good News
                like Fr. Carter did. It's all about
                love and helping souls to go to heaven –

                    We are to prepare for heaven – be instruments
                for Christ and help others get to heaven.
                Mary and Jesus have appeared to me
                delivering this message –

                    I believe – we want the Church
                to spread – We want the messages of
                love in God's Blue Book to spread –


1 John 4: 7-10 

My dear friends,
let us love one another,
since love is from God
and everyone who loves
    is a child of God and knows God.
Whoever fails to love does not know God,
because God is love.
This is the revelation
    of God's love for us,
that God sent his only Son into the world
that we might have life through him.
Love consists in this:
it is not we who loved God,
but God loved us and sent his Son
to expiate our sins.



John 15: 9-17

I have loved you 
just as the Father has loved me. 
Remain in my love. 
If you keep my commandments 
you will remain in my love, 
just as I have kept 
    my Father’s commandments 
and remain in his love. 
I have told you this
so that my own joy may be in you
and your joy be complete.
This is my commandment:
love one another,
as I have loved you.
No one can have greater love
than to lay down his life for his friends.
You are my friends,
if you do what I command you.
I shall no longer call you servants,
because a servant does not know
the master’s business;
I call you friends,
because I have made known to you
everything I have learnt from my Father.
You did not choose me,
no, I chose you;
and I commissioned you
to go out and to bear fruit,
fruit that will last;
so that the Father will give you
anything you ask him in my name.
My command to you
is to love one another.



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.


John 14: 23-29

Jesus replied:

Anyone who loves me will keep my word,
and my Father will love him,
and we shall come to him
and make a home in him.
Anyone who does not love me
    does not keep my words.
And the word that you hear
    is not my own:
it is the word of the Father who sent me.
I have said these things to you
while still with you;
but the Paraclete, the Holy Spirit,
whom the Father will send in my name,
will teach you everything
and remind you of all I have said to you.
Peace I bequeath to you,
my own peace I give you,
a peace which the world cannot give,
    this is my gift to you.
Do not let your hearts be troubled
    or afraid.
You heard me say:
I am going away and shall return.
If you loved me you would be glad
    that I am going to the Father,
for the Father is greater than I.
I have told you this now,
    before it happens,
so that when it does happen
    you may believe.


                R. Christ ascended into heaven. He asks
                us to spread the Good News.
                Through baptism we are commissioned
                to go out and spread the Good News.
                We are given the supernatural virtues of
                faith, hope and love. We must believe and
                hope in our eternal salvation and
                help others to go to heaven and we are
                commanded by God to love Him with
                our whole heart, our whole soul
                and our whole being and love
                our neighbor as ourselves.

                    We are to carry this work as members
                of the mystical body of Christ. We are
                to live holy lives following Christ! –
                We are to serve others, to teach, to
                live the sufferings of life and die and
                rise in Jesus. We are to build up
                the body of Christ –

                    Our mission in the Shepherds of Christ,
                called by Jesus, in our vocation is to help
                renew the Church and the world, to spread
                this Movement so it goes on even
                when we die – So the China Church –

                    The Virgin Mary building goes on even
                when we die – after we are gone –
                so the message of Jesus and Mary goes
                on after we are gone – like Fr. Carter
                who died 16 years ago.

                    My children have children and
                they are getting older and older.
                I will die and hopefully they will
                spread the message of love to make
                the world more and more like Jesus
                wants even when my husband and
                I are gone. I raised them to be loving,
                to love their children, to love the Church,
                to spread the Good News.

                    Jesus showed us in the Ascension
                that He was going to the Father.
                We are here to prepare for heaven –
                to make the Church and the world
                a better place –

                    We are not here to live forever on
                this earth. We are to have our eyes
                on our sights to go to heaven –

                    Do you meditate on what the
                Ascension means – We are not to
                stay on this earth forever –
                We will have the fullness of life
                in heaven –

                    God prepares us for this here
                below –


Ephesians 1: 17-23

May the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, give you a spirit of wisdom and perception of what is revealed, to bring you to full knowledge of him. May he enlighten the eyes of your mind so that you can see what hope his call holds for you, how rich is the glory of the heritage he offers among his holy people, and how extraordinarily great is the power that he has exercised for us believers; this accords with the strength of his power at work in Christ, the power which he exercised in raising him from the dead and enthroning him at his right hand, in heaven, far above every principality, ruling force, power or sovereignty, or any other name that can be named, not only in this age but also in the age to come. He has put all things under his feet, and made him, as he is above all things, the head of the Church; which is his Body, the fullness of him who is filled, all in all.


                R. What does the Ascension tell you?


Matthew 28: 16-20

Meanwhile the eleven disciples set out for Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had arranged to meet them. When they saw him they fell down before him, though some hesitated. Jesus came up and spoke to them. He said, 'All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go, therefore, make disciples of all nations; baptise them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teach them to observe all the commands I gave you. And look, I am with you always; yes, to the end of time.'


Mark 16: 15-20

And he said to them, ‘Go out to the whole world; proclaim the gospel to all creation. Whoever believes and is baptised will be saved; whoever does not believe will be condemned. These are the signs that will be associated with believers: in my name they will cast out devils; they will have the gift of tongues; they will pick up snakes in their hands and be unharmed should they drink deadly poison; they will lay their hands on the sick, who will recover.’ 

    And so the Lord Jesus, after he had spoken to them, was taken up into heaven; there at the right hand of God he took his place, while they, going out, preached everywhere, the Lord working with them and confirming the word by the signs that accompanied it.


                R. Go out and spread the Good News!!


Luke 24: 46-53

and he said to them, ‘So it is written that the Christ would suffer and on the third day rise from the dead, and that, in his name, repentance for the forgiveness of sins would be preached to all nations, beginning from Jerusalem. You are witnesses to this. 

    ‘And now I am sending upon you what the Father has promised. Stay in the city, then, until you are clothed with the power from on high.’

Then he took them out as far as the outskirts of Bethany, and raising his hands he blessed them. Now as he blessed them, he withdrew from them and was carried up to heaven. They worshipped him and then went back to Jerusalem full of joy; and they were continually in the Temple praising God.


                R. We must pray for this unity God wants
                in the Church. This is our
                mission in the Shepherds of Christ in trying
                to help men to be more and more
                holy members of the mystical body of Christ.

                Our life here on earth is not meant
                to live forever.

                We were called by God to help
                    this world to be a better place –
                    to spread the Good News –
                    to die to our imperfections
                    and to rise in Him –

John 17: 1-11

After saying this, Jesus raised his eyes to heaven and said:

Father, the hour has come:
glorify your Son
so that your Son may glorify you;
so that, just as you have given him
   power over all humanity,
he may give eternal life
   to all those you have entrusted to him.
And eternal life is this:
to know you,
the only true God,
and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.
I have glorified you on earth
by finishing the work
that you gave me to do.
Now, Father, glorify me
with that glory I had with you
before ever the world existed.
I have revealed your name
to those whom you took from the world
   to give me.
They were yours
   and you gave them to me,
and they have kept your word.
Now at last they have recognised
that all you have given me
   comes from you
for I have given them
the teaching you gave to me,
and they have indeed accepted it
and know for certain
   that I came from you,
and have believed
   that it was you who sent me.
It is for them that I pray.
I am not praying for the world
but for those you have given me,
because they belong to you.
All I have is yours
and all you have is mine,
and in them I am glorified.
I am no longer in the world,
but they are in the world,
and I am coming to you.
Holy Father,
keep those you have given me
   true to your name,
so that they may be one like us.


                R. We see Judas betrayed Jesus –

                We can do what the devil wants
                    and betray Jesus too –

                We can't rewrite the Plan of
                    God the Father –
                    We must live it –

                This is His plan for us to live
                    here to help the world – to be
                    like Jesus and to die – to go to heaven.
                    Our works are to be carried on in the Church.

                Jesus ascended into heaven –

                We are to help others to carry on
                    our works in the Shepherds of Christ –

                It's not all about us, settling
                    in and being selfish and
                    then not wanting to die.


1 John 4: 11-16

My dear friends, if God loved us so much, we too should love one another. No one has ever seen God, but as long as we love one another God remains in us and his love comes to its perfection in us. This is the proof that we remain in him and he in us, that he has given us a share in his Spirit. We ourselves have seen and testify that the Father sent his Son as Saviour of the world. Anyone who acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God remains in him and he in God. We have recognised for ourselves, and put our faith in, the love God has for us. God is love, and whoever remains in love remains in God and God in him.


John 17: 11-19

I am no longer in the world,
but they are in the world,
and I am coming to you.
Holy Father,
keep those you have given me
   true to your name,
so that they may be one like us.
While I was with them,
I kept those you had given me
   true to your name.
I have watched over them
   and not one is lost
except one who was destined to be lost,
and this was to fulfil the scriptures.
But now I am coming to you
and I say these things in the world
to share my joy with them to the full.
I passed your word on to them,
and the world hated them,
because they belong to the world
no more than I belong to the world.
I am not asking you
   to remove them from the world,
but to protect them from the Evil One.
They do not belong to the world
any more than I belong to the world.
Consecrate them in the truth;
your word is truth.
As you sent me into the world,
I have sent them into the world,
and for their sake I consecrate myself
so that they too
   may be consecrated in truth.


                R. We see Stephen how he was
                    prepared to die – despite
                    what Saul did to him.
                    Stephen's eyes were on
                    heaven –

                Jesus ascended into heaven –

                We are to be prepared to die
                    and have our eyes on
                    heaven –
                    not be crippled fighting
                    God's plan –

                We were to do good work
                    while we were here
                    and pass the job onto
                    others –
                    leaving a legacy by our lives –
                    lived for Jesus –

                Song: A Song from Jesus

                R. Jesus ended the Bible –

                    Remember I am coming
                        soon –

                Read all of Gospel John 17

John 17: 20-26

I pray not only for these
but also for those
who through their teaching
    will come to believe in me.
May they all be one,
just as, Father, you are in me
    and I am in you,
so that they also may be in us,
so that the world may believe
    it was you who sent me.
I have given them the glory
    you gave to me,
that they may be one as we are one.
With me in them and you in me,
may they be so perfected in unity
that the world will recognise
    that it was you who sent me
and that you have loved them
    as you have loved me.

I want those you have given me
to be with me where I am,
so that they may always see my glory
which you have given me
because you loved me
before the foundation of the world.
Father, Upright One,
the world has not known you,
but I have known you,
and these have known
that you have sent me.
I have made your name known to them a
nd will continue to make it known,
so that the love with which you loved me
may be in them,
and so that I may be in them.


                R. Pentecost


From the Lectionary

                        Pentecost Sequence

Come, Holy Spirit, come!
And from your celestial home
    Shed a ray of light divine!

Come, Father of the poor!
Come, source of all our store!
    Come, within our bosoms shine!

You, of comforters the best;
You, the soul's most welcome guest;
    Sweet refreshment here below;

In our Labor, rest most sweet;
Grateful coolness in the heat;
    Solace in the midst of woe.

O most blessed Light divine,
Shine within these hearts of yours,
    And our inmost being fill!

Where you are not, man has naught,
Nothing good in deed or thought,
    Nothing free from taint of ill!

Heal our wounds, our strength renew;
On our dryness pour your dew;
    Wash the stains of guilt away;

Bend the stubborn heart and will;
Melt the frozen, warm the chill;
    Guide the steps that go astray.

On the faithful, who adore
And confess you, evermore
    In your sev'nfold gift descend;

Give them virtue's sure reward;
Give them your salvation, Lord;
    Give them joys that never end. Amen.


                R. Holy Spirit is the soul of the Church.

                Sing: Veni Sancte Spiritus

                R. The Holy Spirit Comes –

                Jesus ascended into heaven
                    Body and Soul

                Mary was assumed into
                    heaven –

                We pray for the Holy Spirit to come on
                    the Church and the world.

                Sing: Come Holy Ghost!

                R. Moses went up the mountain
                    to get the message of God –

                Life on earth is not forever!!

                Sing: Come to the Water


Acts 2: 1-11

When Pentecost day came round, they had all met together, when suddenly there came from heaven a sound as of a violent wind which filled the entire house in which they were sitting; and there appeared to them tongues as of fire; these separated and came to rest on the head of each of them. They were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak different languages as the Spirit gave them power to express themselves.

    Now there were devout men living in Jerusalem from every nation under heaven, and at this sound they all assembled, and each one was bewildered to hear these men speaking his own language. They were amazed and astonished. ‘Surely,’ they said, ‘all these men speaking are Galileans? How does it happen that each of us hears them in his own native language? Parthians, Medes and Elamites; people from Mesopotamia, Judaea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya round Cyrene; residents of Rome—Jews and proselytes alike—Cretans and Arabs, we hear them preaching in our own language about the marvels of God.’

end of may22,2017


                R. We can share facts with each other – I am
                a Catholic, I have a family, I live
                on such a such street – doing this, talking
                about sports, the world is not sharing
                oneself –

                    Telling another about one's heart is
                a big gift. They open themselves and make
                themselves very vulnerable and it is the
                gift of giving oneself to another –

                    They can show our whole lives – opening
                up what is going on really inside. To
                give and give and give as Jesus has given
                to us in this Movement and to be rejected
                is not very nice.

                    A person can open up to be known
                because God has called them to do so –
                to be known – to show the experiences
                of love – that Jesus loves us with Divine
                Love –

                    Another rather than reflecting on the gift
                given can decide to be above, judgmental,
                take advantage of the gift given.

                    God wants us to walk humbly with
                Him. We are a gift given by God. We
                are unique – we are to have relationships
                where we are trustworthy – where we
                are what we say, letting our "yes" be
                "yes" and our "no" be "no". This is being

                    We were created to have relationships
                of love. In the rosary on June 5th, in the
                Month of the Sacred Heart – Jesus said
                "I gave, I gave, I gave, I gave."
                Do we see how Jesus has given –
                Do we see the gifts God has given us in
                creating us uniquely and capable of
                loving and sharing and building God's
                Kingdom of love to which we
                have been called to –

                    God is love and in Him is no darkness –
                God is light – God has revealed Himself
                more and more to us – God gives us
                each other to be friends and to love
                and commands us to love. This is
                God's will. When we reject God's personal
                love for us – when we fail to give love
                to others, loving them as ourselves –
                then we are disobeying the commandments
                of God.

                    When we love and give to others as
                God wants we are loving and giving
                to Jesus.

                    A person that loves another wouldn't
                pull surprises for tricks to watch
                others suffer, how would they expect
                to feel good after they sin and are

                    Jesus shows us Himself on the cross.
                We see His bare body beaten for our
                sins. He gave His all, the last beat
                of His Heart, the last drop of His
                blood. His Heart was pierced with
                a lance. What came forth was water
                a symbol of baptism where He gives
                us a sharing in His life and Blood
                a symbol of the Eucharist – where
                God gives Himself to us Body, Blood,
                Soul and Divinity.


Be Open To His Love

January 6, 1994 3:00 a.m.

Jesus: I love you with such intensity. The feeling you have in your chest is indeed My great love for you. Hold on to this and know how much I truly love you.

You are chosen by Me to write here. I want you to share your intimacy with Me. I want to be close to all My children. Do not hold back. It is your openness to others about this that will lead so many to great intimacy with Me. I am truly here, little one, and I love you for your openness. I am using you to lead others to Me and in union with Me. Do not worry of such revelations. I am guarding you, My precious one. I love you so intently. The incense on your hands is a sign of My constant presence with you.

Don't question. You need to be so assured that I am here constantly. Talk about Me. Open yourself up and do not be afraid. It is your openness that will lead many hearts to intimacy with Me. I am guarding you, little one. Let go now of everything and focus only on Me and My love. Make a Spiritual Communion and come to Me. Come with such love and longing for your Love, your true Love, the one, true God. I am here blessing you. Receive Me into your spirit. I love you.


I Want To Know Him More

January 5, 1994 8:30 a.m.
After Mass

R. After Communion this morning, I felt pain that I could not become closer to and know Him more. It is such an intense longing to know My Lord. It is painful.

At 6:40 a.m. I had felt very close to Him. I had reached the realm of losing myself in Him. My chest felt His love very close, all the way until I received Communion. Then I felt such sadness not to be able to experience Him deeper.

He is so beautiful and so ready to be in union with us. We must constantly be about deepening this union with Him. He creates a flutter in my heart, but also an ache not to experience Him with the intensity I crave. It is the magnetism of my Lord that powers my life and bids me to spend as much time as possible in prayer with Him.

I feel such sadness in my soul because I want so much more. This craving is an appetite in each of our souls and it increases as we know Him more and more. This is the pain of those in purgatory who know the Lord but cannot behold Him. It is indeed suffering to know Him a little, but not more. I have an ache in my heart for a more intense union with Him. I just want more of Him.

It is a bittersweet feeling of love and pain to know and love Him, but not be able to experience Him fully.

Jesus: Wanting to see and hear Me is to demand the ways of the body to communicate. I want to communicate in your heart. Your soul tends to the way of the Lord in your heart, in your spirit. Come to Me and feel Me in your soul. Feel the bittersweetness in the heart. It is I who deal with you interiorly. I need not words. I need not your eyes to keep looking, for this is to delay your communion with Me. Get lost in Me in your soul. It is a feeling you cannot describe in words. It is a feeling you only know in your soul. There are different feelings you experience in the soul, as you know in your heart.

Not all of your feelings associated with Me are the same. Sometimes intense longing, sometimes intensity to feel My presence, sometimes warmth, sometimes insights into My intense love, sometimes insights into other things: My might, My glory, My closeness, My sufferings--all feelings in the soul. I do not communicate to you in words. Oh, such things, all in your heart, are all but glimpses of your God. Be so tuned in to your heart and so aware in these periods of silence with Me. What is the ache in your heart? Love? Or is it longing? You will never completely experience Me on earth. Sometimes more ache, sometimes more love. Come and sit with Me and let Me enter into your heart. It is there that you know Me. You know and experience Me in the heart.

Such insights are given to you after Communion in front of the tabernacle. Wordy, you say, and such repetition? But who listens? You sit here, day after day, in an empty church, alone with Me, as others give lip service to My cry for their love. I sit a prisoner in the tabernacle out of love for you. I beg you to come and bring yourselves to Me. I cannot force you to come. You will never know Me if you do not spend time in silence with Me. I make Myself known in little glimpses in front of the tabernacle.

To those who are sick or elderly I come at their request, but, for you who are able, I wait, as a prisoner of love, for your time with Me. To know Me is to be with Me. Time alone in silence. I pour out to you such gifts and wisdom that no human mind can ever comprehend. Ask not what you get. Your aching heart tells you of My intense love! To know Me a little, but never enough. I communicate to you in the yearnings in your chest.

Become aware of your feelings with Me. How do you feel when you hug your lover? Is it words? No, it is a feeling in your heart. To love Me is to experience Me in your heart. So simple, you say? Yes, simple, but profound. I am the ardent love who waits for you to come. I beg for you to be with Me. Do you say no to busy yourself with such nonsense when your God waits for you? Oh, little ones, come and concentrate all your efforts on improving your union with Me. Do you say no to your God or do you come to Him Who loves you like no other? My ways I make known to you. You come and I fill you with such gifts as you do not comprehend.

R. I am filled with emotion to know this is truly the one, true God who sits here in this empty church with me. Jesus, Who walked the earth and died a brutal death for love of us, sits and waits for us here.

He gave His all for us. He opened His arms and died this brutal death for love of us and we do not have time for Him. It saddens my heart that no one is here to share His love, that He Who loved us so much that He came to earth and gave His life for us sits in an empty church.

This is not a myth. This is real. He is truly present in this tabernacle, this day. Let me, Lord, and all my brothers, know Your true presence here. Oh, God, I love You so.

I experience His True Presence. I am saddened here by so many things. He speaks in my emotions here. I am so saddened by this empty church and the empty hearts of my brothers. He loved everyone to His death. I am saddened by a desire to know Him more and more and not be able to know. But I am filled by His intense love and His goodness. Shout His love from the housetops and stand on the roofs. Declare the day of the Lord is near! Your hearts need the love He has to give! Come in flocks to His altar and worship Him in His might and thank Him for the gifts He has given to you. He is so good and worthy of such honor and praise. We are His chosen ones.

Jesus: Do not stay away, but flock here. Beat a way to the door. You tarry too much. You miss the whole reason for why you live. You have chosen such incidental things and passed up the golden treasures in the fields.

I am the Alpha. I am the Omega. I am your all. I am truly present and I wait for you. You tarry too much and you are losing precious time. Beat a path to My door and spend your days and nights with Me for I am your God, worthy of all honor and all praise, sayeth the Lord. Alleluia, Alleluia.


You Are the Salt of the Earth

February 22, 1994 4:45 a.m.

Jesus: You are the salt of the earth. You are the light of the world. A lighted city in the night cannot be hidden. Likewise, when My light shines from you, you cannot be contained in the darkest night.

I am He Who comes before you and bids you to come to Me in the night. You are becoming too busy. You need time with Me. I want just to be with you, My child, to be in union with you. You cannot be too busy or you do not have enough time for Me.

Today I want to teach you this lesson. Heaven and earth may pass away but My words never pass away. The word of God is recorded in every book in heaven. The word is alive in the hearts of all who read it. It lives on in their lives and cannot be contained. Pray to the Holy Spirit for His gifts to help you know what you need to know. My words have real life. They are given to you with such love! Love the word of God. Love My words here.

end of excerpts from bluebook2


January 5, 1997

Baby, Bare Baby

R. On January 5, 1997, I was wakened by Our Lord and He was mumbling as He was around my bed as He did on October 8, 1997, when He delivered the “Seedless, Barren, No Fruit on the Vine” message.

I heard Him and He repeated the words over and over again. I had a copy of the all-night message on the floor, I jumped from the bed and began to write around the message, for it was the only paper available and He was speaking very plainly and direct. I wrote this message in the margins of the paper. He kept repeating “BABY, BARE BABY, LAID BARE”.

Jesus: Open yourself, Oh Jerusalem, your time is come you will be a light to the people in darkness, many will walk whence you come and the earth will be shakened and the light will come across a dark sky and enlighten their minds.

Oh stiff-necked people, you are so stiff in your ways, let the Spirit envelope you and lead you on your way.

A country of stiffs, a people of planning and prodding, of deliberating and wondering — you lack faith, Jerusalem, you lack faith in God.

Oh walk naked into the cold night, you are cold in your hearts and naked in your clothing — I cloth you with glory, I light your face with light, but you turn your cheeks to the darkness and stay stiff-necked in your hearts. Oh cold and dark hearts, reach for the light that you may know the glory that awaits the sinners and enlightens their minds.

Guiding Light - Reflect on the Word
Inspiring Homilies Covering Cycle B of the Litugical Year (2011/2012)
$ 10.00

Guiding Light homily series — Reflect on the Word — Cycle B     The Word leaves an impression on our souls. In my thoughts and reflections are born a more tangible understanding of these eternal concepts presented in the Gospels and the readings. Anyone can read a sentence, but not anyone can absorb it's true meaning. Truth, in this day and age, is almost a matter of opinion or individual entitlement. We believe that Christ's truth is our Roman Catholic Church. We, as priests, champion it's teachings; we are ambassadors for the Pope and Christ to those faces looking at us. We are the light by which our congregation reads to reflect upon real truth and we do it hand in hand. $15

Guiding Light - Steadfast to the Son
Inspiring Homilies Covering Cycle A of the Litugical Year
$ 10.00

Guiding Light homily series — Steadfast to the Son — Cycle A    The sunflower is a great example of how we should be steadfastly guided by light. What a powerful thought that this exceptional plant is not stuck in one pose day in and day out, yet adaptable and magnetized to the sun. We feel the same about our Son. Our heads turns to face Christ as each day presents its challenges to find light. We join together like plants in a field and soak up the Son through the pulpit. We are a warm circle of strength using the wind of our breath to carry our priests' words, Christ's words, to new rich soil. $15

Guiding Light - Focusing on the Word
Inspiring Homilies Covering Cycle B of the Litugical Year
$ 10.00

Guiding Light — Focusing on the Word — Cycle B    At times we may feel that our path to Christ is a bit "out of focus". Like the disciples in the Book of Mark, this ordinary life clouds our vision of Christ's Divinity. We may doubt the practicality or possibility of applying His teachings and example to our modern life. Cycle B's homilies are a "guiding light" to help us realize Jesus' Messianic greatness and His promise of better things to come. $15

Guiding Light - Feed My Soul
Inspiring Homilies Covering Cycle C of the Litugical Year
$ 10.00

Guiding Light — Feed My Soul — Cycle C    In a world rapidly advancing and encouraging personal gain, we are faced with modern problems. There is a challenge to find time in our busy schedules for Sunday Mass or a family meal. We are able to research, shop, bank and even work without hearing one human voice. It is no wonder that we may often feel disconnected and famished at our week's end. In Fr. Joe's third book of homilies from Cycle C, we are reminded of the charity that Christ intended us to show each other. We have a calling to turn the other cheek and be the Good Samaritan to others. We are rewarded with the Father's kingdom and love when we are not worthy. We are not left alone or hungry. $15

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
