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.

15th Sunday in Ordinary Time
July 13, 2014
Isaiah 55, 10-11; Romans 8,18-23; Matthew 13,1-9 or 1-23) In today's first reading, the prophet speaks to God's captive people in Babylon(Iraq). After 50 years God began telling them, through the prophet, that their years of captivity and slavery to the Babylonians would soon be ended. They would be able to return to Israel, to their cities, their homes and their farms. Many doubted this could be true. In today's passage God is assuring them his promise will be fulfilled. God compares his word to the rain and the snow. When God sends moisture to the earth, it does the work of keeping the world green and alive. When God sends out his word, it is not full of empty promises; it is effective and powerful and is able to accomplish what it was sent to do. God's word was true, as roughly 50 years after the exile, the Persians (Iran) destroyed the Babylonian empire and allowed the Jews to return home. In today's gospel parable we are presented with another way of thinking of the power of the word of God: as a seed.
INTRODUCTION – (
HOMILY –A family were on vacation, and as they rode down the highway there was a big sign that read: Road Closed. They maneuvered around the sign and continued on. Suddenly the road ended and there was an even larger sign: "What part of 'Road Closed?' didn't you understand?" (Reader's Digest, Laughter Really is the Best Medicine, pg 171) In today's gospel Jesus tells us that's why he uses parables, to help those who have trouble understanding his teachings understand what they need to know to be saved.
Today and for the next two Sundays we will hear several of Jesus' parables about the kingdom of heaven. Today's parable and the explanation that goes with it is very clear. God's word is like a seed which can produce life, but if it falls on deaf ears, it produces nothing. It was what Jesus experienced as he traveled from one place to another, teaching. Certainly from the time of Adam and Eve there have been people who hear God's word, and they respond to it like the hardened earth, or stony ground or ground thick with weeds.
A good story, however, can often have several interpretations. So I wish to suggest another way we can look at the parable, a way that might enhance our own spiritual growth. Instead of thinking of the field as all of human kind, think of the entire field as representing just yourself. If I see just myself as the field, I see that sometimes I am closed to God's word, sometimes I get very enthusiastic but my enthusiasm has no depth, sometimes my life is so cluttered with things I have to do or want to do, that I have no time left for God. But sometimes my heart and mind is like the rich soil, and I take God's word in and serve him genuinely and faithfully. Looking at the parable that way, I see in myself hardened paths, stony ground and weeds, but I see also good soil. And I see I have the freedom to determine how well God's word will take root in me by changing what I can in my life so there is more good soil in my heart and mind for the seed of God's word to fall upon.
As we pray today, let us ask God to help us see where in our lives God's grace is having a hard time taking root. Amen.
R. God is just and merciful.
God loves us so much. God has
infused in our soul at baptism
the supernatural virtues of faith,
hope and love.
We can pray and know what
God is telling us to do. We can
do it, when God wants us to do
it. We can ask ourselves why
we would do anything but God's
plan for us because we are
His – He created us for a purpose
to know, love and serve Him.
We can believe. That takes faith.
Can anyone accomplish a thing if
their attitude is to prove it's a failure.
God is light and in Him is no
darkness – not a speck of darkness.
God is love. When a person with
their free will opens up to let
satan tell them what to do in
pride and anger and envy,
jealousy, slothfulness, hatred –
and they keep pushing themselves
more and more away from God
in the deadly sins and disobedience
against the 10 commandments –
How could they have happiness
when happiness is in God.
We see in the homily the story
where Jeremiah delivered the
message God gave and the King
refused to listen.
In the end Babylon took
over, the Jews were persecuted
and held in captivity. God gives
us a free will to obey His
commandments, to obey His will
for us or to disobey God, the
commandments and rebel
before others and God in
doing our will opposed to God.
Love is giving freely for the
glory of God. A person rebelling
willfully against God is choosing
God wants us eternally with
Him in heaven – seeing in
the beatific vision. Seeing
as God wants us to see means
we take on the mind and
heart of Christ.
R. God is light and in Him is no
darkness. God is love. God
wants us to know He created
us and He does not make junk.
He created us a gift to be
R. God is constant. God is –
God is Light, beauty, love –
The devil is hate, darkness, lies.
Jesus is the light of the world.
His light never dies even when
men do things in darkness.
On July 5, 2017 the sky was
red when I did the rosary and
the fire of red was around
the moon – like the fire
of Jesus' Heart – on fire
for love of men.
Two men looked out
prison bars – one saw
mud, the other stars –
Did you ever think how
beautiful the blue sky is
with the top of the trees
against it and how ugly
a man is in a muddy ditch.
Living in God is giving –
it's an act of the will to
want to give to others.
It is an act of the will to
give love. God commands
us to love. Love is giving for
the good of the other. God
gives us His law of Love –
God created man in His image
and likeness. Man is a unique
gift God has given in love to
The beatific vision in
heaven is being wrapped in
the embrace of love of God:
Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We are to prepare for
heaven in every act we do
A person that acts out past
wounds, can act out on
innocent others their dysfunction
and then trying to force others
to put up with their erratic
dysfunctional behavior and
insist in pride they are right
when they are clearly disobeying
God and hurting others in
We are to see through the
eyes of God – we are to live
by the will of God and
prepare for the eternal
reward here below by being
as God wants and doing good.
Giving into sin and living
to continue forcing or trying
to force others to put up
with our evil is wrong.
To oppose God is misery.
God created us, brought us into
existence in love – why would
we oppose God and stoop
to serve satan.
God created us in His
image and likeness. We are
a unique gift given to the
world as we live in God's
will in love.
I have a free will to
obey God's law of love or
to rebel against God and
serve selfishly after satan.
Life is to learn to grow
in relationships in love –
Life is given to us to learn
God has all the Power –
We believe in our whole heart
in God who has all the
God is holy and great –
Luke 1: 46-55
And Mary said:
My soul proclaims
the greatness of the Lord
and my spirit rejoices
in God my Saviour;
because he has looked upon
the humiliation of his servant.
Yes, from now onwards
all generations will call me blessed,
for the Almighty
has done great things for me.
Holy is his name,
and his faithful love extends age after age
to those who fear him.
He has used the power of his arm,
he has routed the arrogant of heart.
He has pulled down princes
from their thrones
and raised high the lowly.
He has filled the starving with good things,
sent the rich away empty.
He has come to the help
of Israel his servant,
mindful of his faithful love
—according to the promise
he made to our ancestors—
of his mercy to Abraham
and to his descendants for ever.
John 6: 54
Anyone who does eat my flesh
and drink my blood
has eternal life,
and I shall raise that person up
on the last day.
For my flesh is real food
and my blood is real drink.
Whoever eats my flesh
and drinks my blood
lives in me
and I live in that person.
John 11: 25-26
I am the resurrection.
Anyone who believes in me,
even though that person dies, will live,
and whoever lives and believes in me
will never die.
Do you believe this?
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.
Psalm 95: 3-5
For Yahweh is a great God,
a king greater than all the gods.
In his power are the depths of the earth,
the peaks of the mountains are his;
the sea belongs to him, for he made it,
and the dry land, moulded by his hands.
The Ten Commandments
1. I, the Lord, am your God. You shall not have other gods besides me.
2. You shall not take the name of the Lord, your God, in vain.
3. Remember to keep holy the Sabbath day.
4. Honor your father and your mother.
5. You shall not kill.
6. You shall not commit adultery.
7. You shall not steal.
8. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
9. You shall not covet your neighbor's wife.
10. You shall not covet anything that belongs to your neighbor.

A Prayer for Grace and Holiness today
A prayer to work in love and holiness
John 16: 23
"If you ask the Father anything in my name,
He will give it to you"
R. God wants our unity – we ask for this
unity – that the Spirit of God fill
us and help us to be holy –
that we do not hold onto any of the deadly
sins that block us from this unity –
that the Holy Spirit can work in our souls,
so we can be His instruments of love
and peace and joy among our brothers.
We pray this heavenly Father in the name of
Jesus who said ask in my name and
it will be given to you.
Let us experience the joy of unity and love
on a supernatural level and know You
our beloved God – more and more supernaturally.
We want our hearts to be sanctified in
our love and work so we are holy and
pleasing to You God.
Come to us Lord and possess our soul.
We want to walk as God intends us
to walk today in the plan of God,
in the work He has called us to do today.
We know that we must cooperate with the grace
You are giving us – now and today to
bring unity and peace and love to this
day as we serve to do the work – You are
calling us in our vocation to do.
Dear Heavenly Father, hear our prayer,
in the name of Jesus, we pray,
we ask, heavenly Father for these
graces necessary this day to
bring peace, love and joy to
our relationships and work – as You
work in us.
We seek perfection in our souls to be holy
souls likened to You – in work
and in play – to be holy in prayer –
we invite You Holy Spirit to be
the Guest of our soul.
We seek order in our lives, not disorder.
We beg for the virtues of faith, hope, love,
prudence, temperance, fortitude, justice,
and humility. We seek to be obedient
to the will of God and live obedient to
the will of God in love.
Come Holy Spirit Come into our hearts. Transform
us from fear to fearlessness to serve
You as You desire in our lives.
Help our actions to be for the glory and honor
of God with the goal of these actions
to one day be in heaven with Thee,
our beloved God.
Heal our hearts and our bodies – Help
us to have health of body now in
this work you call us to do.
Instill in us a desire to want to only
do the will of the heavenly Father
and to walk in holiness and love.
We pray all these prayers heavenly Father,
united to Jesus, in His name for
grace and holiness today and always.
Help us to live by right reasoning in
our lives – to have the truth
in our every thought and to live
in order as You operate in us
in unity and love.
Come to me Lord and possess my soul.
We seek order in our lives – Your order
to love in us, to help us to act as
You desire, to have the thoughts

Your order, Lord.

to love and serve You and do
Give us faith and right reasoning.
Help us to love and be just in our actions.
Help us to seek Your Divine Will and to
perform those actions, which are actions
pleasing to You in everything.
Come to us Lord and purify our consciences,
Help us to hope and love in Thee.
We seek heavenly vision – to see
things through the eyes of
the heavenly Father and to be
perfected more and more in doing
God's will in our lives.
We pray for the gifts and fruits of the Holy Spirit.
We pray for this purity in our souls –
to live virtuously, to be perfected
more and more and filled with the
gifts of the Holy Spirit –
Wisdom, Understanding, Counsel,
Fortitude, Knowledge, Piety
and Fear of the Lord
and to have the fruits of the Holy Spirit –
charity, joy, peace, patience,
benignity (kindness), goodness,
faith, modesty, continency,
We do not want the enemies to
invade our thoughts, our
actions, our lives –
We pray to give up ugly bad habits of the
deadly sins –
pride, greed, envy, wrath, lust, gluttony, and sloth
We know on this journey we will
experience sufferings and joys
and we accept the struggles
in life and ask You to help us,
strengthen us in our lives to
suffer and rejoice as You
desire us to do in our lives.
We want to be a reflection of Your
heavenly love – to be full of light –
Your light in us. To operate in
light and not darkness – IN You,
our beloved God.
We want to follow in the footsteps
of Jesus in giving love and
light and unity to those
we contact in our lives –
Prayer for Union with Jesus
Come to me, Lord, and possess my soul. Come into my heart and permeate my soul. Help me to sit in silence with You and let You work in my heart.
I am Yours to possess. I am Yours to use. I want to be selfless and only exist in You. Help me to spoon out all that is me and be an empty vessel ready to be filled by You. Help me to die to myself and live only for You. Use me as You will. Let me never draw my attention back to myself. I only want to operate as You do, dwelling within me.
I am Yours, Lord. I want to have my life in You. I want to do the will of the Father. Give me the strength to put aside the world and let You operate my very being. Help me to act as You desire. Strengthen me against the distractions of the devil to take me from Your work.
When I worry, I have taken my focus off of You and placed it on myself. Help me not to give in to the promptings of others to change what in my heart You are making very clear to me. I worship You, I adore You and I love You. Come and dwell in me now.
-God's Blue Book, January 17, 1994
April 4, 2017
R. Dear Holy Spirit please come to me the
Guest of my soul. Please pour
into me Your virtues and gifts.
Dear Father, Son and Holy Spirit dwell in me.
Please fill me with the
supernatural gifts I received at
baptism – that they may grow
ever greater to know and love supernaturally.
Dear Holy Spirit,
Please mold in me more and
more the image of Jesus in my
heart and soul.
From Tell My People by Fr. Edward J. Carter, S.J.
Jesus: "My beloved friend, tell My people to pray daily to the Holy Spirit. They are to pray for an increase in His gifts. My people must realize that the Holy Spirit comes to transform them. The Spirit desires to transform you more and more according to My image. Those who are docile to His touch become increasingly shaped in My likeness. He performs this marvel within Mary's Immaculate Heart. The more one dwells in My Mother's Heart, the more active are the workings of the Spirit. The Spirit leads Mary to place you within My own Heart. In both Our Hearts, then, your transformation continues. The more you are formed after My own Heart, the more I lead you to the bosom of My Father. Tell My people all this. Tell them to pray daily for a greater appreciation of these wondrous gifts. I am Lord and Master. All who come to My Heart will be on fire to receive the gifts of the Spirit in ever greater measure! I love and bless My people!"
Reflection: The Holy Spirit is given to us to fashion us ever more according to the likeness of Jesus. And the more we are like Jesus, the more Jesus leads us to the Father. Do we, each day, pray to the Holy Spirit to be more open to His transforming influence? Do we strive each day to grow in union with Mary? The greater our union with our Mother, the spouse of the Holy Spirit, the greater is the transforming action of the Holy Spirit within us.
Prayer:Come, Holy Spirit, fill us with your gifts of wisdom, understanding, knowledge, counsel, fortitude, piety, and fear of the Lord. As we dwell in the Heart of Mary, Your spouse, fashion us more and more according to the Heart of Jesus.
end of excerpt
R. Help me to live my life praising
and loving God in love and
being as God wants me to be.
Holy Spirit be the Guest of my soul.
Come Holy Spirit fill me with the Spirit –
Let the Spirit of God be in me.
I still have many things to say to you
but they would be too much for you
to bear now.
However, when the Spirit of truth comes
he will lead you to the complete truth,
since he will not be speaking
of his own accord,
but will say only what he has been told;
and he will reveal to you
the things to come.
He will glorify me,
since all he reveals to you
will be taken from what is mine.
Everything the Father has is mine;
that is why I said:
all he reveals to you
will be taken from what is mine.
Sing: Come Holy Ghost
Sing: Come Holy Spirit
R. Let the Light of Christ live

The Holy Spirit brings unity to the soul –
order in our hearts – direction
according to and with God,
our heavenly Father who
created us in the image and
likeness of God.
Genesis 1: 26-27
God said, ‘Let us make man in our own image, in the likeness of ourselves, and let them be masters of the fish of the sea, the birds of heaven, the cattle, all the wild animals and all the creatures that creep along the ground.’
God created man in the image of himself,
in the image of God he created him,
male and female he created them.
R. The Holy Spirit opens our hearts and
souls to God – so God can dwell
in us more abundantly.
Come to me God and possess my
Sing: Come to me, Lord, and possess my
soul. Come into my heart and permeate my soul.
Help me to sit in silence with You and let You work in my heart.
We are imperfect – the Holy Spirit
comes to transform our souls
more and more in the image and
likeness of Jesus –
Come to me Lord and possess
my soul –
God fills us more and more abundantly
with His life –
Sing Song: I Love You Jesus
R. The Holy Spirit is the Spouse of the
Virgin Mary – perfect handmaid
of the Lord.
The Holy Spirit wants to transform
us more and more into the image of Jesus.
We were created for this –
Oh God, we are so grateful for
the sacrament of baptism and
the other sacraments. We are
so grateful for the Eucharist
whereby, you feed the life you
gave to us.
God gives us a sharing in
His life in baptism and feeds
us with the Body and Blood
of Jesus in the Eucharist.
Come to me Lord and possess my soul –
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.
1 Corinthians 3: 16
Do you not realise that you are a temple of God with the Spirit of God living in you?

The good Shepherd
Psalm Of David
Yahweh is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
In grassy meadows he lets me lie
By tranquil streams he leads me
to restore my spirit.
He guides me in paths of saving justice
as befits his name.
Even were I to walk in a ravine as dark as death
I should fear no danger, for you are at my side.
Your staff and your crook are there to soothe me.
You prepare a table for me
under the eyes of my enemies;
you anoint my head with oil;
my cup brims over.
Kindness and faithful love pursue me
every day of my life.
I make my home in the house of Yahweh
for all time to come.
Sing: Valleys of Green
R. God gives us a share in His
life in baptism –
Jesus came to give us life!
God is love –
We are here to establish
a Kingdom of Love –
Jeremiah 31: 34
There will be no further need for everyone to teach neighbour or brother, saying, "Learn to know Yahweh!" No, they will all know me, from the least to the greatest, Yahweh declares, since I shall forgive their guilt and never more call their sin to mind.’
1 John 3: 1-3
You must see what great love
the Father has lavished on us
by letting us be called God’s children—
which is what we are!
The reason why the world
does not acknowledge us
is that it did not acknowledge him.
My dear friends,
we are already God’s children,
but what we shall be in the future
has not yet been revealed.
We are well aware that when he appears
we shall be like him,
because we shall see him as he really is.
Whoever treasures this hope of him
purifies himself, to be as pure as he is.

R. God's plan for us is to be loving.

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

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