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.

Sorrowful Mysteries

The Agony in the Garden

1. Luke 22: 39-46

The Mount of Olives

He then left to make his way as usual to the Mount of Olives, with the disciples following. When he reached the place he said to them, ‘Pray not to be put to the test.’

    Then he withdrew from them, about a stone’s throw away, and knelt down and prayed. ‘Father,’ he said, ‘if you are willing, take this cup away from me. Nevertheless, let your will be done, not mine.’ Then an angel appeared to him, coming from heaven to give him strength. In his anguish he prayed even more earnestly, and his sweat fell to the ground like great drops of blood. When he rose from prayer he went to the disciples and found them sleeping for sheer grief. And he said to them, ‘Why are you asleep? Get up and pray not to be put to the test.’

2. Adam and Eve sinned
    against God, they did
    their own will. Eve
    wanted to be equal to
    God.
3. Jesus took Peter,
    James and John in the
    Garden and He went to
    pray.
4. Jesus saw before Him
    all the sins of all men
    from all time and He
    saw all He would suffer
    to His death on the cross.
5. Jesus sweat blood
    and an angel appeared
    to Him to comfort Him.
6. Jesus always did God’s
    will.
7. God calls us to live
    according to the will of
    God in love.
8. To the extent our will
    is aligned to God’s will
    we have greater
    intimacy with God.
9. We must be pure and
    loving to go to heaven.
    Heaven is for lovers.
10. Jesus and Mary are
    the New Adam and the
    New Eve.
    We give our hearts to
    Jesus and Mary with
    you in love.


The Scourging at the Pillar

1. Matthew 27: 24-26

Then Pilate saw that he was making no impression, that in fact a riot was imminent. So he took some water, washed his hands in front of the crowd and said, ‘I am innocent of this man’s blood. It is your concern.’ And the people, every one of them, shouted back, ‘Let his blood be on us and on our children!’ Then he released Barabbas for them. After having Jesus scourged he handed him over to be crucified.

2. Jesus was
    condemned to death.
    What did Jesus do?
3. Jesus was the
    innocent Lamb led to
    the slaughter.
4. Jesus is the Bread of
    Life.
5. Jesus is the Son of
    God, the second
    Person of the Trinity.
6. SIN OFFENDS GOD.
    God calls us to love
    Him and love our
    neighbor as ourselves.
7. Loving our neighbor
    is God's command to us
    to prepare for heaven.
    God is love.
8. "Be perfect as your
    Heavenly Father is
    perfect."
9. God gives us baptism,
    a sharing in His life.
10. Jesus paid a dear
    price for love of us.
 

The Crowning with Thorns

1. Matthew 27: 27-31

Then the governor’s soldiers took Jesus with them into the Praetorium and collected the whole cohort round him. And they stripped him and put a scarlet cloak round him, and having twisted some thorns into a crown they put this on his head and placed a reed in his right hand. To make fun of him they knelt to him saying, ‘Hail, king of the Jews!’ And they spat on him and took the reed and struck him on the head with it. And when they had finished making fun of him, they took off the cloak and dressed him in his own clothes and led him away to crucifixion.

2. Jesus is the King of
    heaven and earth.
3. Jesus loves us so
    much, He remains with
    us in the Eucharist.
4. Jesus is truly present
    in His Divinity and
    humanity in the
    Eucharist.
5. Jesus' love for us is
    Divine love. Jesus gave
    Himself in the bitter
    passion for love of us.
6. Help us now Jesus,
    we are blind, we are
    weak and You are
    strong, help us Jesus,
    give us Your strength.
7. Jesus: Amen, Amen,
    Amen I say to you,
    be not afraid.
8. Oh was there not a
    drop of sweetness for
    Jesus as they pounded
    thorns in His head and
    spit on Him.
9. Oh Jesus knew the
    pains of suffering,
    abuse, sorrow, loss,
    and betrayal by men,
    created by God, that
    refuse kindness and
    love.
10. Why do men hate?
    Why do men punish
    other men for power-
    over and wealth and
    sin?
    What a person does to
    others in sin, they sin
    against Jesus.


The Carrying of the Cross

1. Luke 23:26-31

As they were leading him away they seized on a man, Simon from Cyrene, who was coming in from the country, and made him shoulder the cross and carry it behind Jesus. Large numbers of people followed him, and women too, who mourned and lamented for him. But Jesus turned to them and said, ‘Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for me; weep rather for yourselves and for your children. For look, the days are surely coming when people will say, "Blessed are those who are barren, the wombs that have never borne children, the breasts that have never suckled!" Then they will begin to say to the mountains, "Fall on us!"; to the hills, "Cover us!" For if this is what is done to green wood, what will be done when the wood is dry?'

2. And Jesus carried
    the heavy cross laden
    with the sins of the
    world.

3.
Jesus Falls the First Time

Jesus: The cross was so heavy I could hardly walk. I held on to My cross for greatest love of you and in compliance with the Will of My Father. It became so hard to walk! The cross was so heavy! I fell. I fell and the cross fell on Me. They poked at Me, they struck Me, they demanded I get up. The pain from the instruments they used to poke Me and strike Me was so great! I somehow managed to get up.

When you fall under the weight of your cross, come to My Eucharistic Heart. I am no less present in the tabernacle and in the Eucharist than on the day I carried My cross. I wait with the same love that I had for you when I carried this cross and suffered such agony. Oh, how I love you!
  

4. Jesus and Mary Meet

Jesus: I saw the face of My beautiful Mother. She was weak, her face reddened and full of tears. I saw her tender heart, her love, her anguish, her pain. I saw My dear Mother Mary. My Heart was comforted by the sight of her, but torn by her suffering.

Mary: As I looked into the eyes of my beloved Son, I saw His love. His head, bleeding and wounded. His body weak. His clothes covered with blood. I looked into His eyes and I saw His love for you. I call out to you today. I appear today with a face full of anguish and tears. I appear to call you back to the love of my Son. See through my eyes, as I peer into His eyes, the love He has for you this day to give of Himself for you. Oh, He loves you so much, my little children. See through my eyes the love of my Son. Oh, how He loves you!
  

5. Simon of Cyrene Is Forced to Help Jesus Carry His Cross

Jesus: The cross was so heavy I could not move. My persecutors became angry and forced a man to help Me. The cross was so heavy the two of us could barely move it. How is your cross today? Does it seem so heavy you cannot go on? I am forever watching you. When you are suffering the greatest, I am very close to you. It is in immense suffering that you realize My great love for you. Pray for grace to do always the Father's Will. Pray for grace to grow in your knowledge and love of Me.

6. Veronica Wipes the Face of Jesus

Jesus: My face was covered with blood. From the crowd Veronica came forward with a cloth to wipe My face. On the cloth I gave to you an imprint of My bloodied face. This, My children, remains with you this day as a sign of My immense love for you. But more than any cloth, look beyond the visible consecrated host. I, Jesus Christ, the Son of God, remain with you, Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity, in the Eucharist this day, waiting and longing to be with you. Oh, how I love you!
  

7. Jesus Falls the Second Time

Jesus: Oh, dear ones, the road became harder and harder to walk. The cross was becoming heavier, My body weaker and weaker. My shoulders and arms hurt so much! My head throbbed as I walked. The blood came from My body, from My head to My feet. I was covered with open wounds. I could not go any farther. I stumbled and fell. Again they poked at Me, only harder, and with such hatred they kicked Me. Such vileness in the hearts of men! My greatest agony was not the agonies of My body, but the agonies of My heart for the love I have for all My precious souls. I loved them so dearly. I loved those who persecuted Me. Oh, how I love you!
  

8. Jesus Meets the Women of Jerusalem

Jesus: The women came to Me with their children, their tender hearts crying and wanting to comfort Me. I saw their love, their care. I saw the coldness of men's hearts for all time, the hatred, the anger, the sins, all the souls that, despite all of My sufferings and death, would be condemned to eternal damnation. I told the women to weep not for Me, but for themselves and their children. My greatest agonies were the agonies of My Most Sacred Heart. Oh, how I love you!
  

9. Jesus Falls the Third Time

Jesus: I fell hard the third time. I was so weakened I could not go on. My body collapsed under the cross from such exhaustion! My child, My child, My greatest agonies were not the wounds to the body. They were the wounds I experienced to My heart. Do you know a little more now how I love you? It is in meditating on My Passion and death that you will realize My immense love for you. When you fall, when you struggle, I give you the grace to get up. I never give you more than you can handle. Your strength will come from Me. Come to My Eucharistic Heart. I am waiting for you this day. Oh, how I love you!

 

10. Jesus Is Stripped of His Garments

Jesus: They took Me to the hill to crucify Me. They angrily stripped Me of My garments. They took off My clothes to whip Me. They had covered My bloody wounds with a dirty purple robe. Now, total surrender-they took off My clothes. I showed you the way to surrender, always complying with the Will of the Father. It is in living in His Will that you will have peace and joy, and life eternal some day. Oh, how I love you!

 

 

The Crucifixion

1.
Matthew 27: 35-44

When they had finished crucifying him they shared out his clothing by casting lots, and then sat down and stayed there keeping guard over him. 

    Above his head was placed the charge against him; it read: ‘This is Jesus, the King of the Jews.’ Then two bandits were crucified with him, one on the right and one on the left.

The crucified Jesus is mocked

The passers–by jeered at him; they shook their heads and said, ‘So you would destroy the Temple and in three days rebuild it! Then save yourself if you are God’s son and come down from the cross!’ The chief priests with the scribes and elders mocked him in the same way, with the words, ‘He saved others; he cannot save himself. He is the king of Israel; let him come down from the cross now, and we will believe in him. He has put his trust in God; now let God rescue him if he wants him. For he did say, "I am God’s son." ’ Even the bandits who were crucified with him taunted him in the same way.

2. Jesus: My beloved ones, everything is a grace. You must pray for grace. You unite every morning, in the morning offering, to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, for My grace will spill upon this earth and it will be lighted with the brightest light. You are My fervent souls that I have called and that I am joining to My Heart. In this oneness, the grace will be released on the earth, and many souls will be helped. Do not underestimate the value of every action you perform when you unite to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in the morning offering. I am Jesus. I came to this world the Savior. Bring Me souls! Bring Me souls, My beloved ones! You are My apostles. You will help many souls through your efforts that you make to circulate these messages and rosaries in this world. Many will know the fire of My burning love. Do not underestimate the importance of your life. You will struggle, and you will suffer. Look at Me as I hung on the cross. I show you the way. I show you My way. But in the death there is the resurrection. Give Me yourself. Give Me yourself. I want your love. I want you to talk to Me all through the day. When you are worried and troubled, I want you to say in your heart, “Jesus, I love You. Jesus, I love You.” Put aside the thoughts that Satan is planting in your heads, the seeds of doubt and division, and say, “Jesus, I love You.” Take that moment to spend time with Me. loving Me, and I will strengthen you. I want your love. I want you to long and to thirst for My love. I want you to tell Me you love Me. I am a Person. I want you to love Me. I gave My life for you. Will you give your heart to Me?

3. Jesus: I love you. I love you. I love you. I am Jesus. I give Myself to you. It is in giving yourself to Me that we will unite. I give Myself to you in love, but to become one with Me, you must give yourself to Me. You will share in My Divine love. Nothing on the face of this earth can compare to this love relationship with My Divine Heart. Love is relationship. I give Myself to you. You will share in accordance to how much of yourself you give to Me. I want your all. I promise you peace, love, and joy in your heart when you give yourself to Me. I love you. To My death, I loved you.

I would die for you this day. Will you give Me your heart?

Mary‘s Message - from the Rosary of August 27, 1996

Mary:  I stood beneath the cross of my Son, and my Heart was in such pain for I saw Him before my eyes. I saw Him covered with blood. I saw Him die. My Heart, my children, my Heart to watch my Son, but my Heart, my Heart, how I suffered for my little children of the world that give in to this world and give up the love of my Son. O my little children of light, I give you this message. Carry this light into the darkness for your Mother Mary, for I stood beneath the cross and I cried. I cried for the little ones. I cried for the young ones, the ones that do not care and will lose their souls. How do I make you see for you will not listen to me? What can I do? I come. I appear. I beg. I plead. I give you these gifts from my Son, and you reject me. I do not deliver messages very often anymore for I have been ignored. The message is the same. You do not read the messages I have given to you. Please help me. Help the little children. I appear. I appear. I appear, and I am ignored. I stood beneath the cross, and I cried. I cried, and my Heart was in such anguish for my little children, for I am searching for them this day as I searched for the Child Jesus. Please, please help me. I cannot hold back the hand of my Son any longer. I am Mary, your Mother. I ask you to help my children. You are my children of light. end of Mary's Message

5. Jesus Died on the Cross

R. What can we say of the suffering there.
Mary said it, crying as she spoke.

Jesus gave us His Mother, as He was dying, His thoughts were of us.
He died for us.

Jesus died for us.

Song: A Song from Jesus

6.R. The greatest Sacrifice of all, the Son of God comes to this earth, and He gives Himself as a sacrifice for love of us that we will be saved.

7. R. The Sacrifice is sacramentally made present at every Mass, the priest offers this Sacrifice. We must unite in this Sacrifice and give ourselves. As Jesus sacrificed Himself on the cross, we sacrifice ourselves in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in union with Him. It is in uniting in this oneness with Christ that the grace will be released on this earth and that many souls will be saved. This is the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. We are not there as spectators. We are there to offer sacrifice, to give ourselves. It is when we give ourselves that grace is outpoured on the earth.

8. R. We must pray for holy priests, that priests will be holy in their hearts and unite in such oneness with the Heart of Jesus, that as they celebrate the Mass and offer sacrifice, that they too offer themselves as a sacrifice in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. The Sacrifice of Calvary is sacramentally made present at every Mass.

9. R. The grace that was merited by Christ through His life and death on the cross is released in abundant proportion in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. The more we unite in this oneness with the Mass, the more this grace is released. Our world is in a desperate state. We must unite in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, in our morning offering, every morning, uniting each one of our activities with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.

10. Jesus is Locked in the Tomb

R. Imagine the sorrow in Mary’s Heart. Jesus died. Jesus was locked in the tomb.

And Simeon said
"This child is destined for the fall and rising of many in Israel."

And a sword too will pierce your heart, oh Mary.

Glorious Mysteries

The Resurrection

1. Luke 24: 1-12

On the first day of the week, at the first sign of dawn, they went to the tomb with the spices they had prepared. They found that the stone had been rolled away from the tomb, but on entering they could not find the body of the Lord Jesus. As they stood there puzzled about this, two men in brilliant clothes suddenly appeared at their side. Terrified, the women bowed their heads to the ground. But the two said to them, ‘Why look among the dead for someone who is alive? He is not here; he has risen. Remember what he told you when he was still in Galilee: that the Son of man was destined to be handed over into the power of sinful men and be crucified, and rise again on the third day.’ And they remembered his words.

And they returned from the tomb and told all this to the Eleven and to all the others. The women were Mary of Magdala, Joanna, and Mary the mother of James. And the other women with them also told the apostles, but this story of theirs seemed pure nonsense, and they did not believe them.

Peter, however, went off to the tomb, running. He bent down and looked in and saw the linen cloths but nothing else; he then went back home, amazed at what had happened.

2. Romans 4:25

because we believe in him who raised from the dead our Lord Jesus who was handed over to death for our sins and raised to life for our justification.

 3. 1 Corinthians 15:42-44

It is the same too with the resurrection of the dead: what is sown is perishable, but what is raised is imperishable; what is sown is contemptible but what is raised is glorious; what is sown is weak, but what is raised is powerful; what is sown is a natural body, and what is raised is a spiritual body. If there is a natural body, there is a spiritual body too.

4. We proclaim fearlessly
    the good news of God’s
    love for us and the
    salvation that is
    offered to those who
    faithfully follow
    Jesus Christ.
5. In baptism we
    receive a sharing
    in Divine life.
6. We receive the
    supernatural virtues
    of faith, hope and love.
7. We know Jesus tried
    to teach us and He
    worked many miracles.
8. We see Jesus teaching
    the 2 disciples on the
    way to Emmaus.
9. We see Jesus rose
    from the tomb.
    Jesus: Open wide the
    door of your hearts.
10. Envision Jesus walking
    with us and teaching us
    like He did the 2 disciples.


The Ascension

1. Luke 24:50-53

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

2. This is a mystery.
3. Jesus went to the
    Father.
4. Jesus brought the
    message of God's
    saving love to the
    world.
5. Jesus is the King of
    heaven and earth.
6. We are called to go
    out and spread the
    Good News.
7. We are to spread
    God's love and
    message to the
    world.
8. God the Father has
    a Plan, do His will.
9. God is with us.
10. Jesus is the Bread
    of life.
    The Bread of Life is the
    Word and the Eucharist.


The Descent of the Holy Spirit on the Apostles

1. Acts 2: 1-4

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. 

2. Pentecost is 50 days
    after Easter.
3. We have been given
    the Spirit in a special
    way in Baptism and
    Confirmation.
4. In the Mass we hear
    "Let your Holy Spirit
    come upon these gifts
    to make them Holy."

5. Fr. Joe says: In a
    personal way the Spirit
    may give us courage
    and strength to witness
    to our faith by our
    words and by our lives
    as it did the apostles.

6. Galatians 5:22

On the other hand the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, trustfulness,

7. St. Paul says: Love is
    kind and patient, love
    is not jealous.
8. We are to love God
    and love one another.
9. From Tell My People by Fr. Edward J. Carter, S.J.    

The Holy Spirit

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!"

10.

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

 

The Assumption

1. Mother at Our Side by Fr. Edward J. Carter, S.J. - Mary and Our Personal Uniqueness - Chapter 3

"Of the essence of motherhood is the fact that it concerns the person. Motherhood always establishes a unique and unrepeatable relationship between two people: between mother and child and between child and mother. Even when the same woman is the mother of many children, her personal relationship with each one of them is of the very essence of motherhood...

    "It can be said that motherhood 'in the order of grace' preserves the analogy with what 'in the order of nature' characterizes the union between mother and child." (Pope John Paul II).6 

6. Pope John Paul II, The Mother of the Redeemer (Redemptoris Mater) (Washington: United States Catholic Conference, 1987), No. 45.

3. We were created
    unique by our Heavenly
    Father.

4. From the Priestly Newsletter

Cardinal Newman said

                    "... everyone who breathes, high and low,
                    educated and ignorant, young and old, man and woman,
                    has a mission, has a work. We are not sent
                    into this world for nothing; we are not born at
                    random. . . God sees every one of us;
                    He creates every soul, He lodges it in
                    a body, one by one, for a purpose. He needs,
                    He deigns to need, every one of us.
                    He has an end for each of us... we are
                    placed in our different ranks and stations, not to
                    get what we can out of them for ourselves, but to
                    labor in them for Him, as He rejoiced to do His work,
                    we must rejoice in ours also.
"
                                   
(Discourses addressed to mixed congregations)

5. We each have a
    unique relationship with
    Mary.
6. Mary loves us so
    much as our spiritual
    Mother.
7. Sing: Immaculate Mary
8. Mary was taken into
    heaven body and soul.
9. Mary co-operates
    with the Holy Spirit in
    forming the Christ in us.
10. Mary works with the
    Holy Spirit in assisting
    us to accomplish our
    personal mission in life.


The Queenship of Mary

1. Revelation 12:1-2

Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman, robed with the sun, standing on the moon, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. She was pregnant, and in labour, crying aloud in the pangs of childbirth.

2. God's will is the
    guiding principle for
    our lives.

3. Shepherds of Christ Priestly Newsletter 2000 Issue 3

The Father's Will for Us - Our Source of Peace

  • Pope John Paul II instructs us: "The Church, as a reconciled and reconciling community, cannot forget that at the source of her gift and mission of reconciliation is the initiative, full of compassionate love and mercy, of that God who is love (see 1 John 4:8) and who out of love created human beings (see Wisdom 11:23-26; Genesis 1:27: Psalms 8:4-8)…He created them so that they might live in friendship with Him and in communion with one another.

"God is faithful to His eternal plan even when man, under the impulse of the evil one (see Wisdom 2:24) and carried away by his own pride, abuses the freedom given to him in order to love and generously seek what is good, and (instead) refuses to obey his Lord and Father. God is faithful even when man, instead of responding with love to God’s love, opposes Him and treats Him like a rival, deluding himself and relying on his own power, with the resulting break of relationship with the One who created him. In spite of this transgression on man’s part, God remains faithful in love.

"It is certainly true that the story of the Garden of Eden makes us think about the tragic consequences of rejecting the Father, which becomes evident in man’s inner disorder and in the breakdown of harmony between man and woman, brother and brother (see Genesis 3:12 ff; 4:1-16). Also significant is the Gospel parable of the two brothers (the parable of the ‘prodigal son’; see Luke 15:11-32) who, in different ways, distance themselves from their father and cause a rift between them. Refusal of God’s fatherly love and of His loving gifts is always at the root of humanity’s divisions.

"But we know that God…like the father in the parable (of the prodigal son), does not close His heart to any of His children. He waits for them, looks for them, goes to meet them at the place where the refusal of communion imprisons them in isolation and division. He calls them to gather about His table in the joy of the feast of forgiveness and reconciliation.

"This initiative on God’s part is made concrete and manifest in the redemptive act of Christ, which radiates through the world by means of the ministry of the Church." 13

Today is the Queenship of Mary

Messenger: The Queen mounts her throne among shouts of joy The angels surround this heavenly throne Her children love her and worship their God.

The Sacred Heart of Jesus reigns in the hearts of her children.

He is the King of their hearts.

She is the Queen of their hearts.

A New Adam, a New Eve are recognized by the once enslaved children of Adam and Eve.

A trumpet blare for one so fair, a blare of music for our starved ears.

From the Magnificat, Mary speaks with the lilt of the voice of one so pure and holy. (NOTE: Read this with the lightness of the voice of the Virgin filled with the Holy Spirit and in the humility of one so fair.

Among shouts of joy our Lady speaks liltingly in a heavenly voice and we gape at the sound of her sweet voice and behold the beauty of this maiden so sweet and fair.

God the Father speaks:

Amen, amen I say to you My beloved Apostles of the Sacred Heart. You may worry and struggle now, but a King looks on you with the greatest love as you surrender more and more everyday to do My will that this day will come to your earth, the day of the Reign of the Sacred Heart.

Do not get caught up in the mysteries of the way men act and perceive things, but put your gaze ever more on the mystery of My Divine Son and how much He truly loves you.

You are caught in the wonder of the earth and the firmament. My beloved, so much more glorious is the insight into My Divine Mysteries.

My plan is given here to bring about the Reign of My Son’s Sacred Heart and the triumph of your Mother’s Immaculate Heart.

I am a God of justice and of right.

I am your heavenly Father.

I am the Carpenter, the One with the plan.

You are but children of Mine, creatures of the earth, and yet My love for you is so great. I gave you My only begotten Son as One offered for your sins and, men, you smite Me, your Father.

You ignore your Mother when I give you such gifts in your churches of her presence forever with you and the Holy Spirit working with her bringing forth your holiness.

I painted with My hand your Mother pleading to her young ones, and she appears everyday, and you ignore this sign and gift I give you.

What more could convince you? You want another sign and another while you sheepishly continue your sinful ways.

My children, My children, help Me to reach your brothers, oh please, they have plugged up their ears and covered their eyes.

How is it your Creator cries to the creatures and they ignore Him?

Now the beauty of one so fair July 5, 2000, I painted as a golden wonder before you and allowed such photography that all might know Our heavenly presence when Mary speaks in the Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. And My Son delivers, in these rosaries, the message I give to you as your heavenly Father.

Oh children of the earth, be attentive and listen to Me, I plead as your heavenly Father that your wills be aligned to My will and you serve Me.

Oh children of Eve, your Mother Mary cries to Me, for she pleads your case, and I have given in to her requests that the children be spared if they turn from their ways and love their God.

She wanted to come to you as the Woman adorned in sunlight by day and fashioned in a special way by nightfall in golden mystical light in the dark night, as her favored children sing so fervently songs of praise and love to God, and they sing to her, a Mother who has never forgot them.

Oh children, listen to Me and help Me reach your willful brothers through your fervent prayers. My Son gave Himself as a Sacrifice for your sins, meriting the graces available to you the sinful children of Eve, and you will not even pray after I have granted this special gift of Mary on the building.

Your eyes do not see her, or you would have changed your ways by now.

What sign would you respond to, My silly earth?

I give you My Son with you in the Eucharist, and you do not treasure this gift as you should.

God remains with you today. Jesus, My Son, feeds you with His Body and Blood. He is truly present in His Divinity and Humanity. You need to pray as He has instructed, especially before the tabernacle.

Amen.

I am the Father, I have spoken, I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End.

Jesus speaks:

I am the Son of God, on this glorious feast sing songs of great praise to your God and love Him.

Unite to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit and pray to be possessed by God.

Mary is your Mother, she is the one, pure, spotless, human person. She was conceived without sin, you must listen to her, it is the Father’s will. You must be brought forth from her Immaculate Heart, her spiritual womb, as a child of God, a child of the light.

Let the scales drop from your eyes as you sing praise and see, as never before, the glory and wonder of your God.


5. August 9, 2000

R. Oh, there is not one so fair as thee, my beloved Mother Mary.

Of all the maidens that God could have chosen it was you, oh shining Star of Heaven.

Oh Mary, Mother of us all. She doth appear as a wonder so fair indeed,

A permanent sign of God’s love.

A Woman clothed in gold.

One that glistens with the radiance of a golden tone,

Her beauty dancing in the sunlit hours of every day.

In morning splendor, in dancing light at noon day as the sun glistens on her rainbow glow and at night she has appeared on special dates in golden splendor and light.

Would you quote the Scripture for Mary so fair.

“Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman, robed with the sun, standing on the moon, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. She was pregnant, and in labour, crying aloud in the pangs of childbirth.”  (Revelation 12: 1-2)

Would you see her as she appeared in little villages in the 20th century, tucked in hills and out of the way places.

If you missed these enormous signs from heaven, of one so fair, she appears there clothed in the golden sun of the day, reflecting her radiant beauty painted by the hand of the Father. She is His chosen maiden so fair.

She appears daily, she is there by day and beneath the black shadows of night, she does not slumber, but calls to her children of light to come through her golden doorway and let the light of Christ shine in their souls.

She appears one so fair, by day and sometimes by night clothed in radiance and golden, her garment hemmed with glistening sunlight. She once appeared to a few and her visits fleeting in remotest places, she remains a Woman Clothed with the Sun, the sun dancing on her garments of rainbow color on a busy, busy corner for all to see, in the state of the sun, sunny Florida. She is a Woman painted by the brush of God.

And do you know the wonder of one who calls the children far and wide, to hear the voice of her Son, Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the Flock.

Mary, the heavenly maiden, to call them home to His Heart.

Oh, of one so fair, do we not boast and praise our God and thank Him for such a wonder.

Oh, to Mary, Queen of Heaven and Earth, we cry, help us to do what you asked for at Fatima and help us in our mission of telling the world of your Son’s desire to spread His Movement so men will be Shepherds of Christ.


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

Month of the Sacred Heart

R. See high, see low –

See as you desire –

Our eyes are a wonderful gift given
    to us from God –

We can open our eyes or close our
    eyes –

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

We can see with our eyes –

We can scan the scene from
    right to left –

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

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

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

We can watch the Mass and see
    the priest –

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

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

We can see a new born baby –

We can see a person laid out in a coffin –

We can read and learn with our eyes –

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

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

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

It’s depth and intensity of light –
    I cannot describe

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

    alive and different – it did not
    remain the same –

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

The messages will be transcribed and
    published –

But then she appeared and she did
    not speak at all –

It was the vision –

The vision of intensity – I was so
    wrapped in it and could not
    say to lead the Hail Marys –

My physical abilities were
    numbed as I was enveloped
    in her vision before me –
    the light beyond description –
    the depth so deep and so very
        real –

the lady as she was encased in
    this celestial aura was
    deep in that heavenly vision
    a Mother alive in celestial
    light –

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

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

    solid and bright with a light
        unknown to me

And her beauty in celestial surroundings,
    her beauty mystical – beyond anything
    I have ever seen –

No breath or depth – no high or low,
    no light can be a measure for
    the opening to this window of
    celestial beauty –

Forever – Forever – God tells us of
    heaven –

A foreverness was this vision like
    the scripture

1 Corinthians 2:9

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

R. Did you ever see the sun dance on
    the ocean, or a sun dressed
    body of water –

There is movement – like nothing
    else you know –

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

    I see no movement
    It is –
    Ever changing, beauteous and without
        a beginning or an end to what
        I am seeing –

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

I am in the intensity of this apparition –
    in it and it is and it has
    depth and light and beauty and is
    alive –

    I can’t describe it at all –

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

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

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

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

I cannot even find anything to
    identify this with and
Yet it was so real –
    so beautiful –
    so that it captivated me deeply
    to be enthralled in it –
    I cannot describe

But I know more of eternity –
    that with depth and breath
    we do not know or
    comprehend –

We are blind to the celestial reward,
    relationship with God in intense
    purity and unity – eternally –

We are on earth and we measure with
    our spoons and ounces, we see
    with eyes veiled

And God is beyond and other and
    yet He has given us Jesus Christ in
    the Eucharist to come to us
    and feed the sharing in His life
    we have from baptism –

If He spoke now – He would say
    reach – reach and reach –
    go out and spread the Good News –

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

    created to reach to the heights –
        to dig deeply into the Mystery –
        to know that the unseen is real –
        to not be stifled because we
            stand in a cement sidewalk
            wrapped in the beauty of our
            own footprint –

The footprints we follow are
        those of the Son of God for we
        were created in His
        image and likeness

The seen and the unseen –

Do we see at all beyond
    our eyes –

    the Mystery of God –

    the Mystery of Jesus –

    the Mystery of the Incarnation

    the Mystery of the sacramental
        life of the Church –

    the Mystery of Jesus truly present
        Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity
        in the Eucharist

Reach – Reach – Reach –

See the unseen –

Dig deep into the Heart of Jesus

Beg for the Holy Spirit to fill us with
    His gifts to see, to
    understand, to know,
    to love, to be holy,
    to fear God and to be
    full of wisdom and council –

This is relationship of us –
    human creatures with
    the Divine God –

This is about the gift of baptism –

The sharing in Divine Life –

This is about being nurtured
    with the Bread of Life
    the Eucharist and His Word –

This is about the unseen and
    the seen –

This is about preparing ourselves
    for the goal of eternal
    happiness –

Seeing God face to face –

Being wrapped in the beatific vision –

My people this is about Mary
    appearing in the Virgin Mary building
    and showing me last night –
    her beauty that I cannot
    even describe and
    when she appeared that
        way – she said nothing –
        she just took me into
        this beauty and I behold her
            and what she showed
            me and
            in the end

R. How can I
    draw
    this?

We are earthly and

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

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

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

 
7. Sing: See the Eyes That Look at Mary

8. Sing: Hail Holy Queen
9. Jesus wants His
    Sacred Heart to be
    consecrated next to
    Mary's Immaculate Heart.
10. Sing: Hail Holy Queen

Mary leads us to the
Heart of Jesus, our Savior.
 

Excerpt from The Spirituality of Fatima

    ...Tell everybody that God gives graces through the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Tell them to ask grace from her, and that the Heart of Jesus wishes to be venerated together with the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Ask them to plead for peace from the Immaculate Heart of Mary, for the Lord has confided the peace of the world to her. (19)

19. For background material on Fatima, I am particularly indebted to Our Lady of Fatima’s Peace Plan from Heaven (Rockford: TAN Books and Publishers, Inc., 1983). p.9.


 

From Blue Book 15 – Mary Speaks on June 14th, 1997:

Mary: I am the Lady clothed as the sun and appearing as Our Lady of Fatima in the Americas, Our Lady of Guadalupe - all of my titles will merge into one as the world is brought into oneness, majorly through the Chief Shepherd of the Flock, my Son Jesus. I am Our Lady appearing on a former bank building in Florida. You have made money your god! You are a sinful, willful race and our Blessed Lord is angered at the ways of the children of the world. You have not loved Him. You have offended God. The Father will chastise the earth because you fail to respond to the warnings given. The Father has asked for the Falmouth picture to be circulated throughout this earth. I request this picture to be circulated from my Florida site along with the other image and pictures of Our Lady of Light and Our Lady of Sorrows.

I am sorrowful for you have offended God and treated Him with indifference and neglect. I am Mary, your Mother. Oh, children of this earth, you are in for a weird awakening. You will suffer, but it will not be in ways you think. I am asking you to begin prayer chapters as the Father requested and spread the Priestly Newsletter. I am Our Lady of Fatima in the Americas, Our Lady of Guadalupe. end of excerpt




Mary: And so My beloved ones, I appear to you on a bank in Florida as Our Lady of Guadalupe. You have made money your God. There are so many gods that man has chosen. I am asking you my beloved shepherds to go into this world and to spread the prayers, to encourage all to pray these prayers. Encourage the young children to Consecrate their hearts, the old people to pray the prayers by tapes. My beloved Jesus, your Savior, is asking you to pray for the Priests and the renewal of the Church and the world. Will you obey for the love of Jesus and pray these prayers fervently? Jesus is dressing you in His Precious Blood, when you pray the prayers at the appointed hours of 3:00, 6:00, 9:00 and 12:00. The moon will turn to blood and you my beloved shepherds will be protected by His Precious Blood. It is important that you do all that Jesus asks of you to pray with fervor. It is in the prayers that the Shepherds of Christ Movement will spread to the far ends of this earth. Do not be afraid. Come to my Immaculate Heart for I will crush the serpent and take you into the Heart of my Son. I am Mary your Mother on this anniversary I give to you my motherly love. I am protecting you in my Immaculate Heart.

From Blue Book 15

June 28, 1997 Jesus: I give Myself to you in the Holy Eucharist. In this image (He’s talking about the image on the Apostles Manual in the prayer book.) My hands are extended in such giving love that I give to you. I extend this invitation to all Shepherds of Christ Associates to live the Blue Book messages and to help to spread the devotion to My Eucharistic Heart throughout this world. It is in the Eucharist I am greatly offended because I give Myself to you. It is through this Movement and the leaders living the Blue Book messages that the devotion will be spread on this earth. I am offended by any conversation before the tabernacle. Discussion of My Eucharistic presence and My love is permitted. Sins are committed, sins of indifference, sins of neglect, disrespect before the Eucharist. That which offends Me greatly is any condemnation of your neighbor in My Divine presence. I beg you to take this Mission with the greatest seriousness. You are Shepherds of Christ members. You are to help spread the devotion of My Eucharistic Heart. I wish this image to be circulated on the material distributed by the Shepherds of Christ. It is the Eucharist that is on the image that will help to lead the people to My Eucharistic Heart. My arms are open and I speak to you. Come to Me My beloved ones, come through the Immaculate Heart of My Mother to My Eucharistic Heart. I am Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the Flock, I give you Myself in the Eucharist. I give you My Mother as your Mother. I give you the Immaculate Heart of the Virgin Mother, My Mother and your Mother. I give you Myself in the Eucharist. I extend My arms to you. I am the bridegroom of your soul. You come to My altar through the Immaculate Heart of My Mother and I feed you with My Body.

This is not to indicate that this is the exclusive picture of the Shepherds of Christ Ministries. The picture I request to be blessed by Fr. Carter and placed in All homes of core members, is very important to the devotion to the Sacred Heart and the Movement. I request that the picture be included in front of the Apostles Manual opposite the Prayer for Union with Jesus. I’ve requested this picture to be placed on the Third Blue Book. This picture is very important to the Shepherds of Christ Movement. It is very important to devotion to My Heart. This was the picture that was on Fr. Carter’s ordination card. It will be a picture used to lead many priests and faithful to My Heart. The image on the Apostles Manual is to help increase devotion to the Two Hearts and the Eucharist. The third picture of the Sacred Heart is the picture used in the front of the Blue Book and the candlelight rosaries. Please continue to make available to all members the large picture for candlelight rosaries. The pictures are very important to promote devotion to Our Two Hearts. Please circulate them. end of excerpt

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

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