Consecration Prayer for Peace

I consecrate Russia and the Ukraine to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

I further consecrate the priests, the Church and the world to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Immaculate Heart of Mary.

I do this in the name of Jesus in as far as I am able, united to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, praying to the Father, in the Holy Spirit, with all the angels and saints and the souls in purgatory through the powerful intercession of Mary, Queen of Peace. Amen.

I further consecrate myself, all members of my family and ask the Holy Spirit to fill us. I spread the Blood of Jesus on all above, I cast the devil into hell away from all of us and consecrate all persons, in as far as I am able,  to the Sacred Heart and Immaculate Heart.

 

Prayer for Grace for Election and 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 president and leaders. We pray that we are united as one nation under God to work together in love as God wants.

A Prayer for Intimacy with the Lamb, the Bridegroom of the Soul

     Oh Lamb of God, Who take away the sins of the world, come and act on my soul most intimately. I surrender myself, as I ask for the grace to let go, to just be as I exist in You and You act most intimately on my soul. You are the Initiator. I am the soul waiting Your favors as You act in me. I love You. I adore You. I worship You. Come and possess my soul with Your Divine Grace, as I experience You most intimately.

 
R.
Building the Kingdom of
God is living the Pascal
Mystery of death / resurrection.

Jesus didn’t wear a gold crown,
He wore a crown of thorns.

We walk next to Jesus in the
hills and valleys of life.
Sometimes wearing a crown of
thorns, or a cross, identifying
with Jesus, our brother, our
teacher, our friend.
Keeping our eyes focused on
Jesus, always, loving God,
obeying the Father’s will is
how we help build the
Kingdom of God.

It is a gift to spend quiet time
with Jesus.
We are like children, listening,
true disciples.
Jesus dressed in red, we are
sitting under Him, little children,
ready to listen.

At the transfiguration, God the
Father said: “This is My beloved
Son, in whom I am well pleased,
listen to Him.”

Disciples of Jesus, listen to Him.

The Bridegroom Awaits

Jesus: Dear child, the Son of Man waits and you sleep in the night. I wait for you and you sleep. You know I am waiting and you are dead in your bed. Awake, My little one, when I call. You must not give in to the desires of the body. I care for your needs. Your strength comes from Me. Jump from your bed, sound the trumpet and arise, for your Savior comes in the night to bring you a message for all His children. Ready yourself, for I do not like to wait. Get up and come, child. I am God.

I am He Who made the world, He Who makes the sun shine and the baby in the womb! You make Me wait while you sleep. Rise and run, for the Lord is at hand. God awaits you and beckons you to be attentive to your calling. Sound the trumpet! Arise in the night. I am He Who comes to you. You must harken to the call. Come pronto to My request and do not tarry. I wait and I wait and I eagerly want to talk to you.

I am Jesus, Son of the Living God. Oh, child, I want these messages to reach the ends of this earth. I deliver each with such love. Will you deliver My messages to all My loved ones? They eagerly need to hear My words of love. They need to know how I feel about each one of them. They need to know that I am God. I love each child uniquely and My love is the love of God. What can you get on this earth that can compare to the love of God? You have a message declaring My love for each of My children. They are My love letters to them. Please see that they receive this letter. This is your top priority. It is a love letter to My beloved ones.

I am your Savior. I am not a myth. I am alive and I come to you. I wait in the tabernacle every day as a prisoner. Waiting and waiting in the tabernacle and who comes to be with Me? I await you, My children, to come and realize that God is in the tabernacle. I am Jesus, the Son of God, and I wait for you every day. Come to Me in your busy day. Come to Mass. Make ready your hearts and receive Me in Communion. I am there awaiting you as a groom awaiting his bride. I want to be with you, united in Holy Communion. I am truly present there, but which of you come? I wait for each of you. I am God. I can love you each so intently you do not understand. Your brother does not make up your love to Me. I wait, you little ones. Will you come and receive your love this day?

Ready your hearts and keep them holy. God will enter there. Prepare the way for Me. Do not sin. Do not lie to yourselves and tell yourself that some sins are of no account. Every sin is wrong. I tell you what is right and wrong in your hearts. You know the Ten Commandments. Satan tells you "but in this case, you are exempt", "this is out of date, you are allowed here." No, little ones, sin is sin and your heart knows what is wrong! Keep it pure. The more you lie to yourself about evil, the more right it becomes. Oh, how sad to numb your beautiful heart and accept the things of this world that are evil as okay. Evil is evil and you must guard against any evil the world tells you is okay.

I am the way, the truth and the life. When you abide in My ways, you possess the light of life. Do not be pulled into the world and its evil ways. Ready yourself for My love. I am as a bridegroom awaiting his bride. So pure, so white, so untainted she appears, just for her loved one. Her ways are gentle and kind and she is a picture of holiness, dressed in a white gown. Dress your soul in a white gown for Me. Keep your soul clothed in a cloth of dignity, a white cloth untainted by any sin, pure as the bride who meets her groom. Our meeting is with such love.

You enter My church, you walk My aisle. Your bridegroom awaits you in Communion. I am the bridegroom of your hearts. I come with such love to enter your soul. I am He Who walks with you to be united in Communion. I am Jesus. I am your true Love. I wait for you, My child. Please clean yourself up for My arrival! Think of My coming the day before and eagerly await our union. This is the greatest event of your life, union with God. Anticipate it with such eagerness, as the wedding of our hearts. I await you, little ones. I am God. What could this world ever give you that can be likened to God's entering your soul?

I am God and I come to you in Communion. Do you wait for Me, the bridegroom of your soul? Do you wait as one who is going to one's own wedding? This event far surpasses any wedding. It is you who are missing the significance here. I am here every Mass waiting, just for you. Get dressed, purify yourself, see the priest, go to confession, guard your tongue as the opening to your soul. I enter therein and you receive God, my child. Do you not comprehend this a little?

Read My words here. They are as real as the eyes you use to read them. It is you who blind yourself to all I have to give you. You do not reach with the things of the soul. You look for explanations in bodily things. To see the soul and the things of God you must reach with the eyes of God. You must be opened by the faith I eagerly want to give you. Beg to be open to Me so I can give you all you need to know Me. This world is blurring your Godly vision. It is hard to see through the mask of evil it has created. Every day the mask becomes more dense.

I am here, little one. You must die to this world to see Me. You don't need more of the world. You need less of the world. As the world decreases, your knowledge of Me increases. Take the mask off your face. Make your hearts pure. Pray to the Holy Spirit for His gifts of wisdom, understanding, counsel, fear of God-all gifts that only He can give! Fill your hearts with the gifts of the Spirit. He will remove the blinders from your eyes and dwell in your soul. You will know a new life and I will become so much more alive to you. You, child, need the Spirit!

The way to God is through Jesus. You need the Spirit. You need the Father. You need all three. Pray to be made whole in the Holy Trinity. Pray for union with God. Pray for the things of the soul. When your soul is in order, all else falls into order. You needn't pray for things of the world. Pray to know Me more fully. Pray for unity with God. Pray for opening in your hearts. Pray for holiness. Pray for faith, hope, charity. Pray for knowledge of how to please God. These are the true treasures. All else is of no account. Don't recite prayers for worldly things. Pray for your union with God. This is what it is all about!

I am so eager to make Myself known to you. Our love affair awaits and it depends on you. I am here loving you. It is you who keep us apart. What could you find on this earth that could compare with a love affair with God, child? Your soul was created to know love and serve Me. It craves this union with Me. This appetite is stronger than any other you possess. You hold it back and make light of it because this world has taken God out. This world is messed up. I am God and you are a creature of God. You cannot take God from you or you remain only a creature. What dignity you sacrifice to remove God from yourself!

Prepare for the wedding of our souls. Your bridegroom awaits you. I am Jesus, Son of the one, true, God. I await your union with Me. Child, nothing you ever do on this earth can compare with Communion with God. If you do not behold this as something, you need to pray to know Me more. Go to the Spirit and beg Him for understanding and wisdom. Beg Him for all his gifts to enhance your knowledge of God. Beg the Spirit for His baptism. Let Him shower you with His life and you will become alive and on fire in your heart.

Your bridegroom awaits you. Prepare yourself for the wedding. Come, pure and white, and anticipate this union with eagerness. I love you so, My child. You will never find a speck on this earth that can compare with the love of God. Search, you feeble creature, for worldly satisfaction and you will never satisfy one little part of your soul. Your soul can only be satisfied by the love of God. It stalks your restless heart and is only satisfied in God. It craves God like an appetite except that it is much stronger. What is in your heart that is never satisfied by your worldly way? It is the soul that craves union with God. It constantly keeps you in a state of unrest, of searching, of seeking, of looking for more. The more is found in the Eucharist. It is the answer to the empty heart. It is the love you seek, but cannot find anywhere else. It is Jesus, child. It is your Bridegroom. Come and be in Communion with Him. He awaits you and bids you to come, pure in your heart, to the wedding-the wedding of your soul.

R. I felt as if there was so much I just did not understand and I was overwhelmed by the mystery of God. I opened the Blue Book to this:

Nov. 21, 1993:

Jesus: Oh, what glories I have in store for you when you finally see it all, see all there is to Me! Little glimpses I will give you. These are special treats of My love, but you, in your earthly form, cannot even handle it. My power, My light, My fire would blow you off your feet and you would be out cold.

That is how I am at your side, with a power pack like this, and you worry about a power failure? Oh, how silly, when I am with you. Trust, trust. I am here.

I Want You Holy

January 27, 1994 2:00 a.m.

Note: I was awakened by some noise, a sort of knocking. I don't know what you would call it. It was no mistake. I started to wake up but wouldn't get up, then this noise right behind my head! I wanted to sleep, but I had to get up because I knew it was no mistake. I had just gone to bed at 11:30 p.m.!

R. I love You, Jesus. You are my spouse. I am Your servant. Help me in all Your ways to do Thy holy will. I love You so much.

Jesus: Come and put yourself in My presence. You were awakened by My call and I want you to come pronto. I have a message I want to deliver to you for this world. Ready your hearts for My call. When I call you early in the night I am ready to give you such a message.

I am your Savior. I am your God. I am Who am. I am Jesus, Son of the Living God. Do you know Who I am? You catch glimpses of Me, you study My words, you know of My love.

Pray diligently that you will be taught such special lessons that are only taught to the most fervent hearts. Keep your soul so holy you do not want the tiniest stain of sin. You want to be pure as a bride on her wedding day. You want your gown so clean and white. What bride would want a big stain on her wedding dress? When you approach My altar, you want your gown spotless. Prepare your soul, go to Confession. Do not give in to any taunts from the devil to lead you astray. Pray for grace to ward him off. He is so evil and aims to trip you up!

He works so unnoticed. You must guard your heart as an armed guard guards a treasury. Keep your focus on Me and your thoughts on My love. I am Jesus. Nothing can compare to the love of Jesus. Profess your love often and more often during the day, "Jesus, I love You. Jesus, You are my all. Jesus, I long to be with You. Keep me ever in Your ways. I am Your servant. You are my spouse. Jesus, I want to love You and be pure." Guard your thoughts, guard your heart. Do not give in to any anger. If someone is taunting you, cast Satan out in Jesus' name and pray for strength. When you are being tried by your brothers, Satan is at hand. Send him away!

Are you pure for your wedding and the meeting of our souls? No little flaw in your soul should be overlooked. Satan tells you little things are little things and burrows a hole in there as a worm does in an apple. Every little occurrence of anger, unkindness and selfishness should be avoided. I want you to be as the saints. Your communication with Me is the most glorious event! Do not give in to promptings of Satan who tells you that you are unworthy. You know in your heart when you are tempted and when you have sinned. Constantly send him away and strive for sainthood. No holiness is too high for you. With this as your goal, you will soon, with My help, guard against unkindness and anything that is not of Me.

I know you are not perfect and I do not demand perfection. I want your commitment to Me to holiness. Then you will be ready for daily Communion with Me.

Meditate on My Passion. Think of My scourging, My Blood, My sorrowful mother. Think of all I suffered. Such horror your mind cannot comprehend, and I was God. Meditate on My wounds and My mother by My side and then know more our love for you. I loved you so much as to suffer for you. The understanding of My intense love is enhanced by studying the Passion.

I loved you to My death, beaten, battered, bruised and bloodied--weak almost to the point of death all the way. But My death came slowly and My suffering was intense, all out of love for you. I stretched My arms wide and I surrendered as a little lamb being slaughtered, willingly and lovingly for love of you. My mother suffered so by My side. She suffered with such pain and she loves you so because I loved you so! My mother is indeed your mother! Such a mother to behold!

When you meditate on this, you will become holy. I am the bridegroom of your soul. I wait for you with such love in your Communion with Me. Come and be dressed in your whitest gown. I am God. I wait for you. I am a King. Do you come with stains on your soul for such an occasion? Come in your purity and innocence. Come in your holiness. Come to Me, My beautiful spouse, white and ready for this event.

I know you will fall, sometimes, for small sins. Pray for forgiveness and come. Then go to Confession. Do not come, ever, if you have sinned mortally. This is not the way to receive the Son of Man. You must be as pure as a new bride. Your soul should be white. Always pray at the beginning of Mass with the priest for forgiveness. Make your souls holy for the Lord. He enters your mouth and you partake in union with Jesus, Son of Man.

But, you say, "Lord, You want me this holy?" I say, "Yes, I do want you this holy". To receive the Lord, you need to be constantly aware of My presence there. I am God. I am the true King of Heaven and Earth. I am coming to you as the bridegroom of your soul. Make yourself ready for Me.

At the point of your reception of Me, do not focus on your unworthiness. Focus only on My love. Before Communion you can focus on your unworthiness. At the beginning of Mass you can ask forgiveness for your sins. But, at the actual Communion, think only of My love for you. Do not focus on others and your affairs. Focus on our union together. How intense, that you receive God within your breast! I come with My heart on fire and with such intense love for you, burning, burning to be with you in Communion. Make ready your heart, for the King enters into your soul. You are My chosen. You are My beloved. You are so favored, to be given such an honor!

Focus on My love, My intense longing to be united with you. I am God and I am truly in your breast. I am the King of Heaven and Earth and I come and dwell in your heart with burning love. What an event to behold! This is My union with you. God-made-man comes and dwells in your heart! Oh, My child, with what honor you are favored! Behold Him coming and being in your body. God comes into your body! What holiness you possess! Guard your temples for they hold the King of Glory.

I am your Savior. I am your King. I am Who am and I come to dwell in your body. Such honor for you. Guard your temple. You are the recipient of Jesus Christ, Son of God. Who are you that He humbles himself to enter into your body?

You, My child, are His beloved. You are His bride. You are so loved by Him that He died a brutal death for you.

Do you not know who you are? You are as you are because He has honored you. You are clothed in dignity and honor by His love. You are made holy by His presence. You are a temple of God. Guard your temple. Keep it pure and holy. Do not let any disrespect enter there. Be knowledgeable of your worth. You are precious, that God comes to you and dwells in your heart. Oh, such dignity and honor for you, little one. Such intense and burning love!

I am Jesus. I am your Savior. I am your lover. I am your priest. I am He Who cares for you intently. I am the healer, the doctor, the spouse, the one whose bootstraps you are unworthy to tie. I am Who am and I come to you. What dignity indeed! Honor your body, honor your soul. You are Mine.

Oh, beloved, do you know more now? Come and be prepared when you are in Communion with Me. I will tell you more and more. Be open and let Me work in your heart. Pray to the Holy Spirit for His gifts. Whither I go, the Holy Spirit and The Father are with Me. We are three in one. We are God. Be as an open door. Do not expect things--knowledge, earthly signs. Just be with Me and let Me work as I so desire.

Never run from Me after Communion. Be in intense union with Me. Take advantage of such a time. It is the most sacred moment of your life. You house God inside of you. Do not clutter your minds with worldly affairs. I know you far better than you know yourself. Come and be empty, only dwelling on My love for you. Savor these moments alone with Me. Close your eyes and melt into My arms. Think of nothing but My love. Sit and be still. This is the golden moment when our souls unite and we are one with each other. Come to Me, My beloved. I wait for you as the bridegroom of your soul.

I enter and you are speechless. Sit still and soak up all I give you. Just be. Experience My peace, My love, My healing. What you receive will be different at different times. Just be open and silent. Let Me work in you.

I love you, My beloved, and I wait for My union with you. You are so precious to Me. Come and be with Me. I am so loving. No man can give you even a crumb, compared to this love of Mine. Work on your love affair with Me. I will shower you with such love as you will never ever know in your earthly hearts. Come to Me, My beloved. I wait for you, the bridegroom of your soul.

R. The Eucharist is how we are fed. As we more and more understand what is happening, we become fed more and more in our souls.

Jesus: Feed the people. Get these messages on the True Presence and My love out. When they are fed by Me, their hearts will radiate My love to their brothers and it will be as one candle to the darkest night. My light cannot be contained inside a soul. My life is a vibrant energy that radiates from your very being. Feed My people with the love of Jesus in the Eucharist and watch My love grow deeper in their hearts. Feed the priests. Make them aware of this message. They are the leaders to lead My people back.

The power is found in the Mass and Jesus in the Tabernacle. Your union with Me will help save the sick world. It is no less than I describe here. More is to come. Your hearts will burn in your chest with My presence and My love. My might will radiate from your being.

Praise the Lord, for I honor you with My presence within your hearts. Come and be fed this day and every day. My might is endless and My love is without bounds. I am a vibrant force within your breast, unable to be contained. Your answers are in Jesus in the Eucharist.

Come and experience My power and My intense love for you, My longing for your heart. I am a personal God. I am this personal with you. So you say, "Oh, God I do not understand this," and I say, "Right, you will not understand Me and My ways and how I am. I am God. I am Divine and you are human." Experience My love and quiet your heads. Come with an open heart and the trust of a small child. Experience My love. Do not try to figure God out. Be grateful and experience My love in you.

R. We see Jesus living in the souls that He touches with these letters. As people with Jesus deep in our hearts, we have a spiritual union with Him and we become true brothers in Christ. There is love between us as in a spiritual family. The thread which is His love is woven between us, uniting us in a bond with one another. It is a very strong, spiritual bond. To see the love of Jesus in one's heart creates a great love for that person because we love Jesus so much. How can you not love a soul that is so fixed on love of Jesus? Our love for Jesus radiates from our being. Our brothers, who likewise love Jesus, become very close to us. We see Jesus in their lives and we cannot help but love the spirituality about them and the love of Christ which is emitted from their very being.

We are rich with the love of Jesus deep in our breasts and we are twice blessed with the love of Jesus in those with whom we share this love. We see His love in their souls and we are filled by His life in them. It is an energy that is created when we are joined together and it cannot be contained. Such a feeling of love between brothers is a powerful force indeed. The love of Jesus is so big. It grows when we are joined together with each other.

Praise Jesus for such great friends, whose hearts reflect His love and who emit such an energy which feeds us again. We are indeed His chosen ones to be given such blessings in Him and in each other! Jesus' love is a powerful force. We must continue toward union and not division. This force is spiritual and most loving. It is a mighty feeling to see Jesus' love in our brothers!

He is fortifying His army with our love. We are soldiers of love in this cold war. When joined, the warmth of His love is stronger than any cold (which was seen in the cold nights this winter at the seminary. December 3l was so cold, but so touching in my heart). I was very warmed by the company of those who were there. Is this our lesson, that we may be physically cold, but the warmth of Jesus' love in our hearts is the true warmth? We can freeze to death on the outside, but the love of Jesus warms our hearts to intensity on the inside. Our hearts are burning, our toes are frozen but what is important is the hearts, for we continue to appear in large numbers in the deepest cold. Remember December 8? Such an experience, the healing service of Christ the King. Wow! Such warmth! Special moments. All that matters are the things of God.

The food for our souls is Jesus Christ. We are fed by Him. We need the Eucharist. This is what sustains us. He is trying to tell us this in these messages. It is this, and this alone, that we need. Compared with cold temperatures, the things of God are the mighty things. Not things of the body--things of the soul! His food is food indeed. His drink is drink indeed. All that sustains us in the end are the things of God. His Body and His Blood are our true food! May we all see this truth in our hearts. The mystery of the Eucharist, God-made-man coming into our souls, is our true food. He is food and drink, indeed!!

Alleluia. God is so good and He has visited His people. He is in our presence. He is with us. We are the chosen and He comes in these messages to shout His love into our ears. He wakes me with noises to deliver this to you. Harken and listen! Such honor you possess! He comes to deliver a message to you. Do you think He would come to this world as a human being and die a brutal death and then let you miss His love? He is the same God today as the day He was born and died and resurrected. He is the same God, with the same message, with the same words, with the same love. He is God--one, true, consistent--and He delivers this message to You!

Jesus: Listen, My children. I am coming to you. I am your Savior. I am your ardent Lover. Listen, My little loved ones. I am Who am. Come to Me in the Eucharist. You are the chosen ones. Oh, let Me tell you of My love for you! Read these letters. Shout their contents. Hearts will know Me and My love from these letters. Get them out. I Tell you that you are the vibrant force that will change this world. I love you. Read My message. Shout it. People are numb and miserable.

I call each of you to be My thread to weave My blanket together. Study My messages here. Let Me possess your souls so I can operate your bodies. I need your selflessness. I need your union with Me.

What an army this is, My army of love! Many will come out in big numbers from these letters. You hold the key to opening the hardened hearts of America. Preach My love. Let the vibrancy of My love radiate from your souls.

You at the Center (Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center, Norwood, Ohio) are My soldiers. Let Me form you into My warriors, warriors of love in this cold world. I have all the power. Let My power live in you. You house the real power in your souls. The world will take notice of the life within you. You are the threads of the tapestry. Strong threads you are when you are woven out of My love. My threads will not break for I am God and I am mighty! Your job is to become selfless and let Me possess you so I am operating from you. I want to use each of you to do My work. Do not tarry. Get My messages out to all My faithful ones. My army is dependent on You!

Such a big job, you say? Not a big job when I am the power behind the operation! You will fly when you rest in My arms. I want this done. Who are you to think you are doing it? I am He Who operates you and My ways are steadfast and direct and without error. When I do the work, it is a major success.

Who could do such work as at the Center except a mighty force that powers it all. I am so happy for My faithful servants there and all those who work so hard. Their work is bearing much fruit, but the power behind it all is Mine. I want this to happen and it will. You are being powered by Me. Let go and relax. I do not make mistakes. My mother is there in it all. My work is at hand. Yours is total submission. You are working on a sure thing. Little distractions are but little distractions to the big plan. Accept all things as coming from Him Who loves you.

Alleluia. You are My faithful ones. Know I am in the tabernacle, ready with your supplies. Come and be charged by Me. Sit and soak in the rays. I work in your hearts and you go away with My might. You come empty, you leave full. You are My warriors going into battle. Your supplies are in front of the tabernacle. Your food is the Holy Eucharist. Your answer is union with Jesus Christ. Quit looking to your feeble minds and your earthly ways to solve your problems. Come to Me and be empty and let Me work through you. You are My soldiers. Be submissive and yielding to the Master. Your union with Me is the answer. I am He Who has all the might. You are My servants. Be selfless, submissive, and let Me possess your souls. Die to yourselves that you will live in Me.

Alleluia. I come to you here and you will heed all I have given you. When I call, you answer. I am calling you today to be attentive to Me, for I am He Who loves you and wants to possess your soul. I am mighty. My might will flow from you. Be selfless, pray constantly, open wide and I enter in and you no longer are you, but Myself, dwelling within you. Alleluia.

Such might! Who could possess such might? And you worry! For what? I am He Who powers you. Be selfless and unattached and be busy, for the work at hand depends on your faith and trust in Me. Pray for strength against the evil one. Do not worry. I am Almighty. Just do your job and get your love from Me. You must follow My directions here--Mass, Holy Communion, Adoration, Prayer for Union with Me and prayer to the Holy Spirit. Your mother is watching after you. Pray, pray, pray. Pray to God The Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Pray! Mary is ever by your side. Where I am, so is My mother. You needn't worry. You do not do it in the end. You become selfless. Let Me operate your souls. I am God. I am mighty. I am your all!

 

The Glorious Mysteries

October 13, 1996

The Resurrection

1. R. Jesus has told us how He is the vine and we are the branches. We must stay rooted in Him so that His life flows through us. We cannot become disconnected from the vine. We are one, joined with Him.

2. Hail Mary...

3. Jesus: I am calling you, My special apostles, to this farm on this day of October 13th, 1996. I will fill your hearts with the fire of My love, and the fire of this love will spread across the earth and many hearts will know My love and be touched through you. Open wide your heart during this rosary that I may speak to you and tell you of My burning love for you. I am giving to you an abundant sharing in My life. Open your heart. I am knocking at the door of your heart. You must not close your heart. Open wide that I can come in and fill you with My divine love.

4. R. Oh, My beloved Jesus, I see You glistening and covered in white. I know that You rose on the third day and that there is such glory in the resurrection. My life is a constant death and resurrection as I live in You.

5. R. Focus on the body of a man hanging on the cross. You see this vividly before your eyes - a man covered with blood, His head crowned with thorns. He is beaten and withered. This is the Almighty God, Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who came and gave Himself for love of us. Focus on this picture in your mind. Make it so clear as if you were there, as if you are seeing this with your eyes, at this moment, this man on the cross, with flesh covered with blood. Jesus died. He was locked in a tomb for three days. Now see next to this picture of this man the glorified body of Jesus, His glorified wounds, as He comes forth from the tomb. The Almighty God, our beloved and loving Jesus - He is alive, He is with us this day. He lives in us in a special way. When we are baptized and in the state of grace, God is alive within us and He shares with us His divine life. We are Christ to one another for He is alive in us.

    When I talk to you, I am seeing the Jesus that is alive inside of you. We are all gathered as one body. We see Jesus. We see Him dead on the cross. This is how much that He loved us. Do we not know that He died for us because of this great love, that He wants us to be one body? I see the vine and the branches and I see how they are so connected that the life and the fluid runs through the vine to the branches - it’s all one. We are one in Him. He has given us a sharing in His divine life. Look at us, how separate we are with each other, how we hold ourselves at arm’s length and separate ourselves from one another. We are called in the Shepherds of Christ Movement to be one flock with one shepherd.

    The Almighty God is alive and He lives in us. I went to Mass and Communion this morning and I received the Body of Christ; you receive the Body of Christ. He gives to us His life. He gives to us Himself. We must strive in this Movement to be one, to live this consecration in our lives that we are one with each other, that we put aside all of the tauntings by the devil to divide us, that we realize that division is from Satan. As we march across this United States and this world, we will carry the fire of His love, alive inside of us, for He is alive and He lives within our hearts. We are called to this special mission as His apostles to carry this message, this message of His love to the world.

    Oh, Jesus, how tenderly I love you. You are alive in my very being. You are all that I live for and I want to carry this message out to the world for you have delivered this message with such love. You are so good. Fill our hearts with the fire of Your love and give us Your abundant grace that we will have the courage to carry this message to the ends of the earth. And there was darkness. I see the darkness in the night, but the light steals across the sky and the fire of His love spreads across this earth as His life lives in us and many are touched by the fire of His love.

Song: Spirit Song

6. R. We are not like the world, we see this world and it is Godless. In many cases the world has turned away from God. It is at Fatima that Mary said that we must stop offending God. She has given to us the peace plan that we will have peace on this earth - it is in consecrating our hearts. She said until a sufficient number have consecrated their hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary we will not have peace in the world. She said we must pray the rosary, that we must observe the First Saturday devotion, that we must make reparation to Their Hearts. Why - why do we not do what Mary is asking us to do. It is so simple?

7. R. Mary appeared at Fatima in July, 1917 and she told the children, “You have seen hell, where the souls of poor sinners go. To save them God wishes to establish in the world devotion to my Immaculate Heart. If people do what I tell you, many souls will be saved and there will be peace. The war (World War I then raging) is going to end, but if people do not stop offending God, another and worse one will begin in the reign of Pius XI. When you shall see a night illuminated by an unknown light (January 2, 1938) know that this is a great sign that God gives you that He is going to punish the world for its many crimes by means of war, hunger and persecution of the Church and the Holy Father.”1

    Mary has appeared to me, almost every day from July the 5th of 1994 until September the 5th of 1995 - 14 months - this same cry that came from our Heavenly Mother at Fatima, that we must quit offending God, that we must do what she is telling us to do. This is the peace plan. He is alive and He lives in us. We are being asked to go into the world and to spread His love to the far corners of the earth.

8. R. He gives to us His life in the Eucharist. Who are we that the Almighty God gives to us, human persons, a sharing in His Divine Life. He is treated with such indifference and such neglect. If we knew, if we could see, the glories of the Almighty God, but we are so blind in our sight. We do not see and we do not hear. We must pray for the grace that we will see, that we will be the apostles that He is calling to carry this message out to the world.

9. R. He rose from the dead and He appeared to the apostles. We see Thomas - he did not believe. How are we this day? Do we believe? The Almighty God is truly present in His Divinity and humanity in the Holy Eucharist and He is outpouring His grace, His life to us. Do we believe? Do we believe that He is truly present and that He is giving Himself to us this day? He is here! He is truly present in the Eucharist and He is alive in our hearts!

10. R. He laments and laments how He is treated as a dead object. He is ignored in the Tabernacle.

    The Almighty God is here. We spend all this money and go to concerts, go to football games, all this time in recreation and the Almighty God is ignored. Mary appeared in 1917 and said that we must stop offending God. Look at our world. He has called us in the Shepherds of Christ Movement and is giving to us abundant grace that we will grow more and more in our relationship with Him and we will be His leaders going into this world carrying the fire of His love to the far corners of the earth.

    He is alive. He says, I am the Way, the Truth and the Life and I am with you this day. Open your eyes and see. Open your hearts and live for I AM the Way, the Truth and the Life.

 

Our Lord Ascends Into Heaven

1. R. He took His apostles out to the place of His Ascension and He raised His arms and He ascended into heaven. Do we see the glories of these mysteries, that the Almighty God rose from the dead, that He ascended into heaven? We do not see the glory. We are so focused on the details in our lives. We see with such limited vision. The Almighty God is alive and He is here and He is calling us. Each one of us has been called to this farm, this day, for He knew you would answer this calling. He knew that in your heart you want the deepest love affair with Him, that you want to be one with Him. He has called you as His apostles to carry out His love to the world, to light up the darkness with His life alive within us.

2. R. We look out and we see the beauty of this day, with the sun in the sky and the light, and all the colors in the trees. We see the life in each blade of grass and in each leaf on the tree and tonight the darkness will cover this earth and although the trees and the leaves are still there, and this beautiful river, we will not be able to see with this clarity. The earth this day is covered with darkness for many souls have cut themselves off from the vine. They are withering and dying in their hearts. He is calling us and giving us abundant grace that we will be one in Him, that He will live in us, and as we live on this earth, He will touch others through us. This is a tremendous calling from the Almighty God - that we have been chosen and called and given this grace to be so close to Him.

3. Song: A Song From Jesus

4. Song: Little Child

5. Hail Mary...

6. R. On Ascension Thursday, 1995, I went through such an experience. First, Jesus took me to the height of heaven and I experienced such ecstasy. I was at church and later that day when I went home I was given great anguish and suffering and He called out, “I am alive, I am alive, I am alive!” and He said that He wanted Fr. Carter in the Shepherds of Christ Movement to reach the souls on this earth with the fire of His love. It was in such pain and suffering that I was buckled over and hearing the Almighty God call out, “I am alive, I am alive, I am alive”. How do we treat Jesus? Do we treat Him as if He is alive? Do we love Him with all our heart, our whole soul and our whole being? Do you hear the laments of our beloved Savior, the Almighty God, who gave Himself and died on the cross? He is alive. He wants this burning love affair with us. Many of the Masses, many of our prayers, are said with lack of emotion in our hearts. He wants us to love Him with the deepest burning love, not to go through the motions. Every prayer is a love affair with our beloved Savior. The Rosary we sing - (the Rosary song), and He wants us to say from our heart, the bottom of our heart, “Jesus, we love You. Mary, we love you. Oh, the Rosary, the Rosary, is the love of Their Two Hearts. Oh the Rosary, the Rosary, is the love of Their Two Hearts.”

    In the September 10th rosary that we circulated to you, Jesus laments how He does not receive a drop of heartfelt love from many of His beloved religious that He has chosen and loves so much. This is why He has called us in the Shepherds of Christ Movement, to pray, to pray for His beloved religious. He loves them so much and He wants, He wants this burning love from them, His chosen ones. We are gathered here for this reason - to realize that the Almighty God really is talking to us, that He has called us, that this is an important mission, that we need to pray so fervently for our priests and our religious, that this is His instrument, the Shepherds of Christ Movement, to help in the renewal of the Church and the world.

7. Jesus: I am alive, I am alive, I am alive, and I live in your heart. Open your heart and let Me come inside of you. I want to touch My beloved souls this day. Will you say “yes” to this calling? Will you go to the ends of the earth and spread this movement? Will you pray, pray fervently for this intention: to lead the religious to the fires of love, found in My Most Sacred Heart?

8. Song: Spirit Song

Jesus: I am alive, I am alive, I am alive, and I live in your hearts.

R. Jesus no longer walks this earth, but He is alive and He lives in us.

9. Song: “Come Unto Me All Who Are Weary..”

Jesus: I am alive, I am alive, I am alive, and I am the Almighty God, all powerful. You see with such limited vision. You must surrender and let go and let Me run your life. You are holding on, My beloved ones. You must realize that I am all powerful, all mighty, and that I am guarding you and I am with you in a special way this day.

10. Jesus: Carry My light into the darkness.

R. And the light came across the dark sky and many were touched with the fire of His love.

    Because you answered this call, the call to be His apostle, to pray for the priests, to help spread the consecration as Our Lady has asked us at Fatima. We will not have peace in the world until our hearts are filled with love, and she says until a sufficient number have consecrated their hearts to the hearts of Jesus and Mary, we will not have peace. This is the good news. As the Movement spreads across this earth, as hearts are consecrated to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, we will have the peace that Our Lady has promised at Fatima but we must do as she has told us to do. We must consecrate our hearts and spread this to the world. We must pray the rosary, observe the First Saturday devotion, and make reparation to Their Hearts.

 

The Descent of the Holy Spirit Upon the Apostles

1. “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.” (Acts 2: 1-4)2

2. Jesus: I call you, I call you, I call you, My beloved apostles. I call you to go out to the ends of the earth and to preach My love. I am longing and thirsting for My beloved souls to come to Me. Bring to Me the souls, the souls I love. I am Jesus, do you hear this call? Will you bring to Me the souls of My loved ones? Will you pray for the priests and the religious, for it is through them that I will feed the hungry souls?

R. Look at the priest, see the priest in the Mass, the priest that consecrates the bread and wine into the Body and Blood of Christ. He gives to us the Body and Blood of Christ. See Jesus in the priest, giving us His Body. Each one of us go to the communion rail and God gives to us Himself. We are one in Him. Jesus has told me how we sit in church, like stiffs, all separate, going through the motions. This is not love! He wants heartfelt love in our hearts, to realize that the Almighty God, in the greatest act of love gave Himself as a sacrifice on the cross and this sacrifice is sacramentally made present in every Mass. The Mass is a love affair with God. The deepest union with Him is to give ourselves to Mary, for we are sinners. She is the pure and sinless one. We give ourselves to Mary and we go to Him in her pure and sinless heart, to the very depth of His Heart.

    He is alive and we are the apostles that must carry this life into the world in our hearts. He is operating through us. Will we say “yes”? Do we see the world, do we see the suffering children, do we see the babies that are murdered in the wombs of their mother, do we see what the children are being fed on television..but we hold back our tongues about the love of God? When I began to receive these messages, for six weeks before, constantly I heard, “Feed the hungry, feed the hungry!” I prayed and I prayed and I prayed to know His will. In September of 1991, He called out to me, for six weeks, constantly, “ Feed the hungry!” The world is starving for the love of God! Let us feed the hungry with this love of God. Let us pray for the priests for He gives us them.

3. R. We encounter Christ through the sacraments. His life is outpoured in the Mass. Grace is outpoured in part according to the disposition of the person offering sacrifice. As we become one in Their Hearts, as the priest becomes one in Their Hearts, consecrated to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, an immense amount of grace is released on the earth. It is through this that many souls will know God, that many souls will be saved. We help in the act of redemption. We must spread this Movement to the far corners of the earth. It is as Mary said: we must consecrate our hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. This is the key - Mary’s heart is the gateway to going to the deepest chamber of the Heart of Christ.

4. R. We see how Peter denied Christ. We see how the apostles were afraid. We see Thomas did not believe. We see them stumble and fall and run away, and then we see them, after the Holy Spirit descended upon them. They went out into the world and thousands were converted. They were filled with the fire of God’s love. Let us, God, be filled with the fire of Your love.

    Dear Holy Spirit, give us this fearlessness to go into this darkened world and to carry the light, to carry the messages of Your burning love to the souls that are starving and are longing to be fed.

5. Song: Lady of Fatima

Jesus: I am alive, I am alive, I am alive, and I live in you. Open your heart that I may touch so many of My beloved souls through you. I am Jesus. Will you say “yes”, My beloved apostles?

6. R. Look into the eyes of the children that are suffering this day. Mary has sent us on a special mission to spread the rosaries and the consecration to the children in the schools. Do you see the children, the children in the schools today that are hard in their hearts, the children that are suffering, that do not know the love of God? Mary is giving us special help to spread these rosaries in the schools. She wants this all over the United States. For nine months Mary asked me to spread the rosary and the consecration to the children. We are the apostles that He is sending into the world this day. This is what Mary and Jesus are asking us to do. It is so little - to spread these rosaries and consecrations to the schools, but Mary said at Fatima we will not have peace in the world until we do what she has told us to do. The Shepherds of Christ Movement is a great part of the completion of the Fatima message. These rosaries are a big part of the completion of the Fatima message. We must carry these rosaries to our children in the schools.

7. R. Satan presses down on us and tries to stop us. The pressure that has gone on just to have this today is unbelievable, how Satan can try to stop this. Look at the Fatima message, how it has been blocked. Why, why, why are not we paying attention to this Fatima message that Mary gave in 1917? It is the devil that has blocked this message. This is a major part of the completion of the Fatima message so we will be met with such resistance. Jesus, Jesus wants us to bring Him souls. So many souls would be saved through the First Saturday devotion. Why, why do we not talk about the Fatima message like we should - about praying the rosary and consecrating our hearts, and the First Saturday devotion, and making reparation to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary? It is so simple but the devil has blocked this. If we want peace we should do what Mary has told us for she is the Queen of Peace and the peace of the world has been entrusted to her. We are the apostles. We are being sent into the world to carry this message.

8. Hail Mary...
9. Hail Mary...
10.Hail Mary...

 

The Assumption of Our Lady Into Heaven

1. R. We see Mary taken body and soul into heaven. We live here, we struggle everyday with so many struggles. We are so focused on the daily events. We do not realize that soon we too will go to heaven, if we love and serve the Lord, if we love and serve God. The world has turned Godless to a large degree. Mary appeared to me every day, except for a few days, for fourteen months and begged and pleaded thatwe spread the love of her Son to this world, that we spread these rosaries to the world, that we go to the children with the rosaries and the consecrations. It is so hard to see our heavenly Mother and to know what she is saying and to not do more. Jesus and Mary have called you here this day. You have been chosen by them. This is the message that they wish to deliver to you, that many souls are suffering and going to hell. Over and over again I heard Our Lady call out, “Please, please the souls are dropping into hell like rain. You must go out to the world and spread the love of my Son.”

2. R. On October 13th, Mary said, “I am the Lady of the Rosary. I have come to warn the faithful to amend their lives and to ask pardon for their sins. They must not offend Our Lord anymore for He is already too grievously offended by the sins of men. People must say the rosary. Let them continue saying it every day.”3 This is a great gift that God has given to us - rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. For in the rosary this week Jesus said that the times ahead will be very dark and unless we discipline our minds by praying the rosary all through the day, it will be very hard for us when these dark days come. Mary is our heavenly Mother. She was taken into heaven but she is very much with us. She has told us what we must do. We must pray the rosary. She is our heavenly Mother. As a mother that tells a child what to eat and how to dress, Mary is telling us this: that we must try to pray l5 decades of the rosary every day for the times ahead will be dark and we need to have disciplined thoughts. In praying the rosary, our thoughts become disciplined. We are meditating on the lives of Jesus and Mary.

3. Hail Mary...

4. R. I saw a documentary on Fatima and in this documentary, Mary appeared to the three children and then they showed the events of World War II. The bodies were being thrown on a heap. And it just about tore my insides apart because I identified so much with watching Mary appear and then nobody listened or not a lot of people listened and World War II happened and so many people were killed. John brought a statue and asked me to read this, “One day during World War II, a group of soldiers wandered into a small French village which had been badly bombed. They stood in the village square and looked at the desolation around them. Nearly everything seemed battered and broken. Suddenly, one of the soldiers noticed something interesting close by on the ground. It looked like a statue. There were cracks and chips in it and several pieces were missing. It was badly damaged. A few of the soldiers stood it up right. Immediately they knew that it was a statue of Jesus. The men began to look for the missing parts. They put them together as best as they could and then they set the statue on a pedestal that was still standing, but the hands were missing. The men looked very carefully for the hands, but they were no where to be found. When the men were about to give up, one of them said he knew exactly what to do. He made a rough sign and hung it over the arms of the statue. The sign read, ‘I have no hands but yours.’”

5. R. Jesus gave me a message that we are His hands and we are His Heart beating in this world. We must truly be real lovers, lovers living in this world loving one another, one with each other. It is in going to the pure heart of Mary, that we will unite in this deep love affair with Jesus.

6. Jesus: You are My hands. You are My Heart beating in this world. My beloved apostles, will you say “yes”? Will you go into the world? Will you carry my light in the darkness? Will you tell the children who are suffering how I love them? Will you go to the nursing homes and tell the elderly how I am longing to be with them, to talk to them, to hear the words from their lips that they love Me? You are My apostles of love.

R. This is the anniversary of the sixth apparition at Fatima. Mary appeared every day for fourteen months to me and delivered these rosaries. That is all she kept saying: that we must lead others to the love of her Son, Jesus. The message is so simple. It is love God and love one another. All the fanciness and the frills! Why can we not live this message which is the message of love God and love each other.

7. R. We are so focused on the things of this earth and our heavenly Mother has appeared so many times and told us what we must do - she made it so clear at Fatima. Do we think our Blessed Mother will change, that she will change her peace plan? We must, we must carry this message into the world. We must do what Jesus and Mary are asking us to do.

8. Hail Mary...
9. Hail Mary...
10. Hail Mary...

 

The Coronation of Our Lady

1. Mary: I am Our Lady of the Holy Rosary. I am asking you this day to carry these rosaries into this world. It is through the rosary that you will have peace in your hearts. My little children, you must learn to discipline your thoughts. You must come to Our Hearts and meditate on Our lives. Our lives will live in your life as you meditate on the mysteries of the rosary.

2. Mary: There is a time, a time of struggle. There is a time of joy. There is a time when the Sacred Heart of Jesus will Reign. The time for these things is near at hand. My little children, I have called you on this October 13th, 1996. I have called you to go into this world and to carry the rosary as your weapon against Satan. It is through the rosary and the scapular that I will save this world. I am Mary, your Mother. I am Our Lady of the Holy Rosary.

3. R. We see the angel appear to Mary and ask her to be the Mother of God. This is the Father’s plan - Mary would be the Mother of God, and we see Mary as crowned Queen of Heaven and Earth. Do we see the plan of the Father unfold in our lives? That our lives are so important to help in the salvation of many? That He is truly calling us to be apostles to carry His love, His light, into the dark world?

4. Jesus: I am with you in a special way, My beloved apostles. I am calling you this day. This is an urgent call. You must go into the world and carry My messages of love to the souls that are hungry and suffering and in pain.

5. R. Think vividly of the moment of death. There is a soul at this moment on the edge of death. How did they live their life? Think of the world today. Is the world living according to the way that God has told us that we must live? He told us that we must love God and love one another. There is a soul at this moment on the edge of death. Where will this soul go? Did the soul love God? Did it matter about his clothes and his house and all his riches? I heard Mary, Our Mother, call out time and time and time again about the souls that were going into hell. It is like the Fatima documentary - she called and people did not heed what she said and there was World War II. Mary does not appear as she once appeared and she has ceased giving messages as she once did. She still gives messages but they are not as many. She says that we are not listening to the messages that she has given and that she cannot hold back the hand of her Son any longer.

6. R. This is the good news: if we do what Mary tells us at Fatima, we will have peace. There will be the Reign of the Sacred Heart and the Triumph of her Immaculate Heart in which souls will fervently love Jesus with the greatest love. Her plan is so simple but Satan has blocked this plan. Satan has blocked these rosary messages and meditations. We must pray that we can circulate the messages of Jesus and Mary to the world that is hungry and in need of help.

7. R. One day soon we will be with God in heaven, forever and ever.

8. R. Wrapped in the embrace of the Almighty God for all eternity. Heaven is a place of love for the Almighty God is love. We will be satisfied. We will know love. We will be at peace.

    But, hell is a place where there is no love, there is no community, there is isolation, there is longing for God for all eternity.

    He is alive, He is alive and He is with us this day. You must spread this message to the ends of the earth.

9. Mary: My little children, I call you children because you are My children, willful in your ways. I have called to you to pray My rosary and to spread the rosary to the hurting children in this world. I am asking you on this special day that you carry the rosary to as many souls as possible. I will aid you in all efforts to spread the rosaries to the world. Read these meditations to the elderly in the Nursing Homes, teach them about the power of the rosary, bring the rosary to the children, tell them about our lives, about our love for them.

    I am Mary, your Mother, I am Our Lady of the Holy Rosary.

10. Song: The Rosary

Ending Message:

Jesus: How tenderly I love you, My beloved ones. I am Jesus. I have called you this day for this special meeting. I have called you, My apostles. Will you go into the darkness? Will you spread the message of My love? Will you carry the rosary into the world? Will you touch the hearts of those that are hurting and in pain? Will you be My apostles of love? I am calling you to love God and to love one another, to be one in your hearts, to put aside all hatred and bitterness within your heart, to not give into the tauntings of Satan to divide you, to always operate in love, to focus on God. Let your hearts be filled with love.

Glory be...

“My dear friends, let us love each other, 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.” (1 John 4: 7-8)4

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. $10

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. $10

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. $10

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. $10
