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 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. In Shepherds of Christ God wants to dwell
                in our hearts.

                    In the first Blue Book message May 13, 1993
                we see what God says: 
 
                   

Cling to Me - May 13, 1993 

Jesus: My dear child, if you stay close to Me, then I live in you and you live in Me. I am He Who created you and I love you with such an intensity that you will never know. My words are your truth. You must abide in My heart in all things. There is no room for doubt. My ways are steadfast, direct, and without error. ... end of excerpt

 

                R. With Adam and Eve sin entered the world.

                With this disorder

                    We see that man is born with
                original sin and baptism takes
                away original sin, but the
                tendencies to the deadly sins
                remain.

                We can choose to act a certain
                way or not. We have a free
                will.

                A woman used to cut the ends
                    off of her ham.
                    Her husband said
                        "Why do you do this?"
                        She said, "My mother did this."

                On exploring why her mother did
                    it, she discovered the ham
                    did not fit in the pan, so
                    her mother cut off the ends.

  Exodus 34: 6-7

Then Yahweh passed before him and called out, ‘Yahweh, Yahweh, God of tenderness and compassion, slow to anger, rich in faithful love and constancy, maintaining his faithful love to thousands, forgiving fault, crime and sin, yet letting nothing go unchecked, and punishing the parent’s fault in the children and in the grandchildren to the third and fourth generation!’ 
 

                R. Habits are practiced and learned.
                    A child may be in a dysfunctional
                    home and deprived of their
                    needs or wants.

                When the child reaches a certain
                    age to survive they may
                    decide – I never get what I
                    want and when I ask, I
                    get punished – so I will
                    resign myself to not
                    asking for or getting what
                    I want.

                There is a decision to deal
                    with a dysfunctional
                    situation as a child and
                    asking for things are
                    grounds in some homes
                    for abuse or punishment.

                The child may suppress their
                    wants and needs and then
                    get deep seated anger,
                    even bitterness as they
                    grow and carry out this
                    behavior long passed their
                    home as a child.

                But this unfinished business
                    resulted in a bad habit
                    how to handle needs and
                    wants accompanied by
                    deep seated anger they
                    may use in later life to
                    resolve by punishing others
                    who need or what
                    something essential.

                AA calls it
                    "stinking thinking"

                The Pascal Mystery is

                    Death / Resurrection –

                We all need recovery from
                    bad habits, but some
                    are so wounded they
                    deny any dysfunction,
                    bad habits because
                    of pride and unfinished
                    business.

                Justice and peace will
                    kill.

                Justice is giving to God and
                    others what is their
                    due.

                Right reasoning for why
                    we act –

                Our conscience is to help us
                    to grow in what is right.

                Bad habits we learned and
                    many can be forced because
                    of generational woundedness.

                A spiritual director can only
                    help a person seeking
                    the truth and wanting
                    to change.

                A person growing up in a
                    dysfunctional home with
                    bad habits going back
                    in generations - has to
                    want recovery –
                    not search for a place to
                    force their dysfunction
                    on innocent others
                    by some form of
                    power-over tactic they
                    use.

                The devil works in the wounded
                    human nature, the deadly
                    sins to try to push his
                    evil on innocent others
                    by people who are prideful who
                    want to continue bad
                    sinful habits and not change.

                God wants to fill us and operate
                    in us.
                    When the Sacred Heart dwells in our
                        hearts, the Holy Spirit works in
                        our hearts –
                        There is love –

                The focus must be living by the
                    Father's will in love.

                Lent is a time to ask God to help
                    us see bad habits in our
                    actions and not deny those
                    bad unruly habits that
                    lead to destruction and rupture
                    of relationships with God, others
                    and ourselves.

                Love is a gift!

                Some think they are unlovable.

                God created us in love –

                When God dwells in us – He
                    fills us with love –

                Pride – thinking that we do not have
                    to change bad habits -
                    makes us unhappy.

                When God dwells abundantly
                    in a soul – He loves
                    in them – 

1 Corinthians 13: 1-13  

Though I command languages both human and angelic—if I speak without love, I am no more than a gong booming or a cymbal clashing. And though I have the power of prophecy, to penetrate all mysteries and knowledge, and though I have all the faith necessary to move mountains—if I am without love, I am nothing. Though I should give away to the poor all that I possess, and even give up my body to be burned—if I am without love, it will do me no good whatever. 

    Love is always patient and kind; love is never jealous; love is not boastful or conceited, it is never rude and never seeks its own advantage, it does not take offence or store up grievances. Love does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but finds its joy in the truth. It is always ready to make allowances, to trust, to hope and to endure whatever comes. 

    Love never comes to an end. But if there are prophecies, they will be done away with; if tongues, they will fall silent; and if knowledge, it will be done away with. For we know only imperfectly, and we prophesy imperfectly; but once perfection comes, all imperfect things will be done away with. When I was a child, I used to talk like a child, and see things as a child does, and think like a child; but now that I have become an adult, I have finished with all childish ways. Now we see only reflections in a mirror, mere riddles, but then we shall be seeing face to face. Now I can know only imperfectly; but then I shall know just as fully as I am myself known. 

    As it is, these remain: faith, hope and love, the three of them; and the greatest of them is love.

 

                R. God commands us to love
                   others –
                    How can we love when
                        we are an empty well –
                        We need to ask God to dwell in us.

1 John 4: 7-11

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. My dear friends, if God loved us so much, we too should love one another.

 

                R. When we want to be more loving
                    we must ask God to operate
                    in us and then be willing
                    to let Him run the show.

                I remember a joke in one of Fr. Joe's
                    books.

1st Sunday of Lent - February 10, 2008

HOMILY: A teacher asked her little children in religion class to draw a picture of their favorite bible story. One small boy drew the picture of an elderly gentleman, elegantly dressed, driving a big convertible. In the back of the car were two people, hardly dressed at all. The teacher thought it was an interesting picture and asked what it meant. The young artist was surprised the teacher had to ask, but he explained that was God driving Adam and Eve out of the Garden of Eden...
 

                R. We know we are commanded
                    to love God with our
                    whole soul, our whole heart,
                    and our whole being and
                    love our neighbor as ourselves.

                Love is a theological virtue –
                    We will love if God dwells
                        in us and we have an
                        intimate relationship
                        with God where He
                        is first.

                The Blue Books are Jesus' letters of
                    love to us. They help us
                    grow in that oneness and
                    intimacy with Jesus.

                God intends us to love others
                    and ourselves –

                Many do not even see themselves
                    as lovable –
                    how can they love God
                    and others –

                Many never even try to see
                    others through the eyes
                    of love –
                    that takes giving oneself
                    to see and listen and
                    be empathic to others.

                If we don't see ourselves
                    as lovable – how can
                    we give love – we are
                    like an empty well –

                Jesus heals –

                We see the scripture –
                    He healed – He taught –

                Disciples are learners
                    ready to be taught –

                Having Jesus in our hearts
                    will help us heal –

                The Holy Spirit dwelling in us
                    sanctifies us –

                    When we give our heart to
                    Mary our Mother –
                    She works lavishly to help
                        us be holy –

                    The Holy Spirit molds us more and
                        more in the image and
                        likeness of Jesus –

                We ask Father, Son and Holy Sprit to
                    dwell in us – operate in us –
                    live in us –
                    Be one in us –

                Happiness is only found –
                    really – in God !! –

                God even tells us to love our
                    enemies –

                    We need God operating in
                        us to do this –
                        to forgive –
                        to see the person at
                        their core existence
                        created by God.

                Before the cataract surgery
                    I couldn't see very
                    clear –

                The devil wants us to be
                    blind to loving our
                    brothers –

                The deadly sins are about
                    division, competition,
                    making enemies of
                    our brothers in our
                    hearts –
                    ENVY – it's in us
                    JEALOUSY – it's in us
                    Pride – we see ourselves
                                up –
                                others down

                Anger – having mean
                    thoughts toward others

                Etc.

                LOVE –
                    finds a way

                LOVE brings unity –

                When we truly love, our
                    hearts are happy –
                    Our hearts were created
                        to love –

                The only way to know this
                    happiness of loving others
                    is to do it!!

                Not loving is unhappiness –
                    and if you never love you
                    don't know the joy of loving.

                God is love –

                Loving is Godly –

                We were created for this –
                    created in the image
                    and likeness of God –

                Joy comes in loving –
                    giving – going out
                    in sacrifice and
                    kindness –

                The more one does not love
                    the more self-centered
                    they become –
                    even caved-in
                    Bad habits
                    selfishness, pride, jealousy,
                    envy etc.

                Loving is really its own
                    reward – in joy and happiness,
                    nothing else compares
                    to this.

                And God tells us to love our
                    enemies –
                    not make enemies in
                    our hearts by the
                    bad habits of the
                    deadly sins –
                    pride, greed, envy, wrath,
                    lust, gluttony, and sloth.

                Loving people trust God and
                    others – they are not
                    isolated and closed in –

                Building walls does not make
                    us happy –

                God wants Unity –

                God is the Ultimate Truth –
                    Truth sets you free –

                Song; God's Love


 

                Jesus: Let everything you do be
                an act of love – You can
                operate for your selfishness
                or you can operate in
                actions of love as I
                act in you and spread
                My Kingdom –

                Why do you act –
                    for yourself or
                    for love???

   

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.

 

From The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius, by Louis J. Puhl, S.J. p.11

21.                     SPIRITUAL EXERCISES

    Which have as their purpose the conquest of self
    and the regulation of one's life in such a way that
    no decision is made under the influence of any
    inordinate attachment

 

                R. Let go of the inordinate
                    attachments this Lent –

                Operate to love –

                Operate for the honor and glory
                    of God –

                See others in love –

                Do what you do as I love
                    them through you –

                Quit your selfishness –

                Operate in love –

                Love isn't love until you give it away.

                You won't experience the
                    joy of loving others
                    until you do it.
                    Get out of the way!

                Song: Give Me Your Heart oh Jesus

Mary: Do what you do out of love.
Many put themselves first and it becomes such a habit.
Selfishness is not Godly.

Do what you do for love.
Love brings happiness you only know when you love. In forgiving you give love.

Selfishness brings unhappiness, you are caved-in.
Some people never know what it is to give in love because they never try it.

My soul doth magnify the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior.

I am Mary, Mother of love,
Come and dwell in my heart.
I give you my Motherly love.
Give yourself in love.

Love your brothers, ask for the grace to love them.
See them with love.
   

John 3: 16

For this is how God loved the world:
he gave his only Son,
so that everyone who believes in him 
    may not perish
but may have eternal life.

  

R. God loved us first. 

The Father loved us into existence.

Love never dies.
Love is eternal.

It spreads to others - God is behind it.
If we love, God gives us this grace to love.

Mary: Be grateful.

I am your Mother of Love.

Love gives!!!!
Experience the joy.
Be obedient to the Father’s will.
Live in love.
Live in happiness.

Love brings peace.
I am the Queen of Peace.

R. 3 mountains 

Suffering – Mt. Moriah where Abraham was to take Isaac.

Ecstasy – Mt. Tabor where Jesus appeared transfigured.

Calvary where Jesus died.

Death / Resurrection

Calvary / Mt. Tabor

Jesus only once showed them the glory on Mt. Tabor before His death.

The voice of the Father was heard "This is My beloved Son in whom I am well pleased."

Now we are to help build the Kingdom of God.
It is a Kingdom of love.

Our arms are hearts of love.
Open your hearts to God!!

Ecstasy

The teacher wants the student to learn. He teaches and they must apply themselves.

Jesus called Himself the teacher after Mary appeared in Clearwater.
Without the eyes of faith, some do not open up to absorb His teachings here, even after Mary appeared as she did in Clearwater.

To some nothing will ever be enough - what a loss.

  

       

   


 

..."thy Kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven."

R. Our King does not rule with guns, but with love.
He gives us our life to love, know and serve Him.

He has all the power, His Kingdom is not of this world.

Jesus, King of the Jews.
His bed was a bed of wood dying on the cross.

Thy Kingdom come...
The Kingdom of love.

Of forgiveness.

We want to live in the heavenly kingdom forever and hope to help others to go there too.
Thy Kingdom come.

 

               February 17, 2021 - From Ash Wednesday early morning

                R. God is in perfect order –

                When Adam and Eve sinned disorder
                    entered the world.

                    When satan has tempted a person
                to sin and they disobey just
                authority over them, they
                act in disorder.

                    Adam and Eve sinned, disorder
                entered the world.

                    The world was in perfect order –
                then there was disorder in the
                elements, in the animals, fish,
                Adam and Eve, because sin       
                brings disorder.

                    Justice is proper order –
                God is Divinely Just –

                Song: I am a God of Justice


 

                R. Fortitude strengthens the
                    will.

                We have a choice to obey
                    God's will or disobey
                    God's will –

                Adam and Eve disobeyed God's
                    will – this brought disorder
                    to the perfect, orderly
                    world God created.

                God gifts us with the
                    infused virtues –

                Love is a virtue –
                The devil is hate –

                Justice helps us give to
                    God what is his due.

                Here on earth we hope to
                    attain heaven –

                    In heaven we don't need to
                        hope – we possess God.

                    The sinners in hell have
                        rejected God forever
                        they do not have hope
                        in hell.

                    In heaven we love God
                        eternally - seeing God
                        face to face in the
                        beatific vision we
                        are full of life.

                    The is no love in hell.     

1 Corinthians 13: 4-8, 13

Love is always patient and kind; love is never jealous; love is not boastful or conceited, it is never rude and never seeks its own advantage, it does not take offence or store up grievances. Love does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but finds its joy in the truth. It is always ready to make allowances, to trust, to hope and to endure whatever comes.

    Love never comes to an end.

    As it is, these remain: faith, hope and love, the three of them; and the greatest of them is love.

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
