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.

R. The Doctor helps sick people.
If someone comes with cancer
they try to help them.

When someone is sick spiritually,
we can try to help them, but if
they won’t budge
we have to pray.

Monica prayed for Augustine so
many years.

Love isn’t love until you give it
away, but it might be hard
Jesus’ thoughts were of us, while
dying on the cross.
Jesus loves us so much.

Sometimes we are our own worst
enemy, holding out, hurting
ourselves and others.

Holy Spirit please instill in us the
supernatural gifts of wisdom,
understanding, and knowledge.
Come to me Lord and possess my
Come Holy Spirit come.

Holy Spirit Prayer

Come, Holy Spirit, almighty Sanctifier, God of love, who filled the Virgin Mary with grace, who wonderfully changed the hearts of the apostles, who endowed all Your martyrs with miraculous courage, come and sanctify us. Enlighten our minds, strengthen our wills, purify our consciences, rectify our judgment, set our hearts on fire, and preserve us from the misfortunes of resisting Your inspirations. Amen.

R. My hands might be cold, but my
heart is warm in Him.

So many sufferings in life, when
dealt with properly according to
God’s will, can help bring down
great grace when united to the Mass.

Our life is made up of choices.
We see Jesus died between two
thieves: a good thief and a bad thief.

The bad thief was mad to the end,
being nasty to Christ, even when
on the cross.
The good thief was sorry, he told
Christ, Jesus said he (the good thief)
would be with Him in heaven.

We have a choice what path we
take every day of our lives.

We can see the beautiful blue sky
today, the sun is out and we think
of the beauty God gives us today.
How much more beautiful for us
is the gifts of heaven.

Job 7:1-4. 6-7

Is not human life on earth just conscript service? Do we not live a hireling's life? Like a slave, sighing for the shade, or a hireling with no thought but for his wages, I have months of futility assigned to me, nights of suffering to be my lot. Lying in bed I wonder, 'When will it be day?' No sooner up than, 'When will evening come?' And crazy thoughts obsess me till twilight falls.

Swifter than a weaver's shuttle my days have passed, and vanished, leaving no hope behind. Remember that my life is but a breath, and that my eyes will never again see joy.


1 Corinthians 9:16-19.22-23

 In fact, preaching the gospel gives me nothing to boast of, for I am under compulsion and I should be in trouble if I failed to do it. If I did it on my own initiative I would deserve a reward; but if I do it under compulsion I am simply accepting a task entrusted to me. What reward do I have, then? That in my preaching I offer the gospel free of charge to avoid using the rights which the gospel allows me. So though I was not a slave to any human being, I put myself in slavery to all people, to win as many as I could.

To the weak, I made myself weak, to win the weak. I accommodated myself to people in all kinds of different situations, so that by all possible means I might bring some to salvation. All this I do for the sake of the gospel, that I may share its benefits with others.


Mark 1:29-39

And at once on leaving the synagogue, he went with James and John straight to the house of Simon and Andrew. Now Simon's mother-in-law was in bed and feverish, and at once they told him about her. He went in to her, took her by the hand and helped her up. And the fever left her and she began to serve them. That evening, after sunset, they brought to him all who were sick and those who were possessed by devils. The whole town came crowding round the door, and he cured many who were sick with diseases of one kind or another; he also drove out many devils, but he would not allow them to speak, because they knew who he was. In the morning, long before dawn, he got up and left the house and went off to a lonely place and prayed there. Simon and his companions set out in search of him, and when they found him they said, 'Everybody is looking for you.' He answered, 'Let us go elsewhere, to the neighbouring country towns, so that I can proclaim the message there too, because that is why I came.' And he went all through Galilee, preaching in their synagogues and driving out devils.

INTRODUCTION – (Job 7:1-4.6-7; 1 Cor 9:16-19.22-23; Mark 1:29-39) Today in our first reading we hear Job lamenting his sufferings. Depression really is evident when Job says, “I shall not see happiness again.” Hopelessness is one of the major characteristics of depression. Whether Job was a real person on not, no one can say for sure, but the Book of Job definitely expresses a feeling we’ve all felt at times, that life is unfair. At the time this book was written, the view God’s people had was that if we are good, all will go well, and if we’re not, all kinds of terrible things will happen to us. We all know life doesn’t always work that way. The book of Job probes this problem without coming to a satisfactory answer. The author could only conclude God somehow must know what he’s doing because we do not. However, even though Job despaired of ever being happy, his misfortunes were reversed in the end and he did die happy.

    Our second reading is difficult to understand without knowing the context. Paul is not usually given to boasting, but here he is using himself to inspire the Corinthians to follow his example. The situation at Corinth he is addressing concerned eating meat sacrificed to idols. There were those who thought there was no problem because idols were not really gods anyway. However, this created scandal for other Christians and it was a source of division. Paul said, the first group are theologically correct, but they should forego the right to eat meat sacrificed to idols for the sake of love for their brothers and sisters who did not understand and for the sake of unity. Then he speaks of himself, which we will hear, saying he has given up certain rights he could claim, including the right to be paid for his work, so that he could win more people to the gospel of Christ.

HOMILY – Our gospel tells us about Jesus who was kept busy trying to cure the ills of the world. Notice how important prayer was to him. He needed to gain strength from his Heavenly Father, as we all do, in order to deal with everyday challenges.

    I would like to focus on Paul today because I think the second reading connects with certain issues in the Church today. One of the major problems Paul had to deal with in the Corinthian community was trying to keep everyone in union with one another and with Christ. Not only did this problem show itself in the issue of eating meat sacrificed to idols, but unity was threatened when those blessed by various gifts of the Spirit were thinking they were better than everyone else. There were problems with the celebration of the Eucharist. They celebrated in the context of a meal and those well off ate well while the poor didn’t have enough to eat. So Paul said: do your eating and drinking at home and not when you gather for the Eucharist. There were other issues too, but especially one stood out. There was a man living in sin with his father’s wife. It was so offensive not even pagans would do something like that. Paul said he should be put out of the community until he came to his senses – to be excommunicated. It was a punishment meant to lead him to repentance.

    The Church, as any society, has the authority to decide who has gone too far and is no longer a part of the community. This week there was a lot about excommunication in the news. About 25 years ago an Archbishop in France, Archbishop Lefebvre, decided he didn’t like all the changes in the Church and started his own Church which is called the Society of St. Pius X. He wouldn’t claim he was starting his own Church. He would say the Pope and Bishops and people who changed with Vatican II were all wrong, and he was right, that he was the authentic Roman Catholic. He started ordaining priests who agreed with him and, eventually, after he ignored Pope John Paul II’s order to stop, he was excommunicated. In addition, Church Law, also called Canon Law, states if anyone is ordained bishop without the consent of the Holy Father, that person is automatically excommunicated. Four such bishops in the Society of St. Pius X were in this situation and they have repeatedly requested that the excommunication be removed. In his effort to reunite the Archbishop Lefebvre group with the Church, the Holy Father lifted the excommunication on January 21, (two and one half weeks ago.) This does not mean the Society of St. Pius X is now part of the Roman Catholic Church. It only means the penalty has been lifted on these four bishops, but there is a lot that needs to be done before there is full unity. The followers of Archbishop Lefebvre must fully recognize the validity of Vatican II and the Magisterium of the Holy Father.

    To complicate things, on the same day the excommunication was lifted, there was a TV interview with one of those bishops, Bishop Williamson, where he denied the Holocaust ever took place. The pope has denounced the position of that bishop and so has the head of the Lefebvre group. Several people have asked me this week how the Holy Father could remove the excommunication from someone who denied the Holocaust. I have tried to make it clear that the excommunication imposed upon the bishops and the lifting of the excommunication was totally unrelated to Bishop Williamson’s position on the Holocaust. First of all, the Holy Father did not know Bishop Williamson’s position on the Holocaust when he removed the excommunication. Secondly, a person is not excommunicated for saying something so profoundly ignorant. If a person were to remain adamant in that ignorance and were ordered to recant, and they persisted, they could perhaps be excommunicated. I don’t know if that could happen here; however, the Holy Father has subsequently demanded that “Bishop Williamson must absolutely, unequivocally and publicly distance himself from his views concerning the Shoah” (the Holocaust) before he could ever be fully united with the Catholic Church as a bishop. As we can see, unity is not easy to achieve. If it were easy, there would not be hundreds of Christian denominations in existence today. The Holy Father asks our prayers for the Church and for himself. Amen.

Sorrowful Mysteries

The Agony in the Garden

1. Mark 14: 32-44

They came to a plot of land called Gethsemane, and he said to his disciples, ‘Stay here while I pray.’ Then he took Peter and James and John with him. And he began to feel terror and anguish. And he said to them, ‘My soul is sorrowful to the point of death. Wait here, and stay awake.’ And going on a little further he threw himself on the ground and prayed that, if it were possible, this hour might pass him by. ‘Abba,  Father!’ he said, ‘For you everything is possible. Take this cup away from me. But let it be as you, not I, would have it.’ He came back and found them sleeping, and he said to Peter, ‘Simon, are you asleep? Had you not the strength to stay awake one hour? Stay awake and pray not to be put to the test. The spirit is willing enough, but human nature is weak.’ Again he went away and prayed, saying the same words. And once more he came back and found them sleeping, their eyes were so heavy; and they could find no answer for him. He came back a third time and said to them, ‘You can sleep on now and have your rest. It is all over. The hour has come. Now the Son of man is to be betrayed into the hands of sinners. Get up! Let us go! My betrayer is not far away.’

And at once, while he was still speaking, Judas, one of the Twelve, came up and with him a number of men armed with swords and clubs, sent by the chief priests and the scribes and the elders. Now the traitor had arranged a signal with them saying, ‘The one I kiss, he is the man. Arrest him, and see he is well guarded when you lead him away.’

2. Jesus gave His life.
3. Jesus did what He did which
    gave glory to His Father.
4. To obey another, we must
    see the order as it is designated
    by God.
5. God the Father loves us so much,
    He gave His only begotten Son.
6. Jesus shows us obedience to
    His Father’s will.
7. Mary shows us obedience to the
    Father’s will.
8. Adam and Eve disobeyed the
    Father’s will and sin entered the
9. When Adam and Eve sinned,
    disorder entered the world.
10. Sin caused others' pain, we can
    see how much pain Jesus suffered
    for our sins.


The Scourging at the Pillar

1. Luke 23: 15-19, 22

...As you can see, the man has done nothing that deserves death, so I shall have him flogged and then let him go.' But as one man they howled, 'Away with him! Give us Barabbas!' (This man had been thrown into prison because of a riot in the city and murder.)

And for the third time he spoke to them, 'But what harm has this man done? I have found no case against him that deserves death, so I shall have him flogged and then let him go.'

2. So many sufferings can come
    our way, but we can identify with
    Jesus in our suffering, putting up
    with those sufferings we must
    Can you even imagine a little what
    Jesus went through?
3. Love gives for the good of the
    other. Mary, our Mother, teaches
    us selflessness. How she must
    have suffered during Jesus'
    sufferings, the carrying of the
    cross and Jesus' death and after
    the crucifixion.
4. We can meditate on the mysteries
    of the rosary. Jesus gave His all.
    No person ever suffered as
    much as Jesus.
    Jesus taught us to love.
    Jesus taught us surrender.
5. Jesus loved us so much to suffer
    as He did for our sins.
    It’s to our advantage to not know
    all of the sufferings in our entire
    life to come. Jesus knew all the
    suffering He would endure in His
    Divine knowing and He said "yes".
6. Jesus knew everybody’s sins and
    how some would use their free
    will given by God to rebel against
    God and hurt others. Sin hurts
    others, besides ourselves, sin
    offends God.
    Jesus told Fr. Carter to start these
    prayer chapters, praying for the
    priests, the Church and the world.
7. Pray with us the prayers Jesus gave
    Fr. Carter for the renewal of the
    Church and the world.
    Help us spread the prayers.
8. We need love. God is love. We are
    sinners, we need to be accountable
    and responsible when we sin.
    Mary said at Fatima to repent.
9. The devil wants souls to be lost.
    We need to pray,
    with love, in the Hearts of Jesus
    and Mary. Amen.
10. God is with us.
    Truly present in the Eucharist.
    This is our beloved Jesus scourged
    at the pillar for our sins.

    Sing: A Song from Jesus

R. My dear beloved Savior
I come your little one to ask for
your help with these trials now.
I seek Your protection, that Your

Heavenly Father, in the name of
Jesus I Pray these prayers, united
to the Mass, with all the angels

in the Holy Spirit, through the
intercession of Mary, my Mother.

We can all stretch our wings down
here below, but like the prodigal
son, in the end, our destiny forever
is in returning to the home the
Father has planned for us in heaven.

Jesus led the quiet life for 30 years

Generations of love.
Love is giving for the good of the
What you do to others, you do to

Love is an act of the will.
So is holding out and unloving acts.

A Family of Love.

God’s family is a family of love.

Matthew 12: 46-50

He was still speaking to the crowds when suddenly his mother and his brothers were standing outside and were anxious to have a word with him. Someone said to him: Your mother and brothers are standing outside and want to speak to you. But to the man who told him this Jesus replied, 'Who is my mother? Who are my brothers?' And stretching out his hand towards his disciples he said, 'Here are my mother and my brothers. Anyone who does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother.'

R. God is good to us all the time.
God sends us gifts in others
helping and loving us.
God gives us gifts in the presence of
others, loving us in our lives,
helping us in our lives, being one
in sharing the love of God in unity
in our lives.

Communion with Jesus. Oneness
in the body of Christ.
Being one in Him, united in deep
love in the body of Christ, with
Christ the head.

Such a gift, we were made for more,
rejoice and love as commanded by
God, ask for pure and holy hearts,
bonded in unity and love.

Rejoice in the Good News, God is
love and light and in Him is no
darkness, Rejoice.

Today is the day of salvation,
Rejoice in God our Savior.
He is with us.
Amen, Amen!!! Alleluia, Rejoice,


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 was willing to suffer so
    much persecution and torture
    for our sins.
3. Jesus in His Divine knowing,
    knew all He would suffer. Jesus
    knew every hole they pounded
    in His Head.
4. Jesus is the Head of the body.
5. Jesus' sacrifice gave such glory
    to His Father.
6. Sin offends God.
    Sin hurts ourselves and others.
7. Jesus had a crown of holes in
    His precious head.
8. Jesus' head was full of blood,
    streaming. Heads bleed a lot.
9. Jesus' eyes were wounded, His
    hair matted with dried blood.

10. Come to me, Lord, and possess
my soul. Come into my heart and
permeate my soul. Help me to sit
in silence with You and let You
work in my heart.

Love is in the heart.
Love is being there.
Love is thinking about others.
God gives us special miracles,
many times to help increase our
God shows us special signs.
We are here to help each other.
God protect us from harm, help
us in everything we do.
The Heavenly Father created us
to go back to Him some day.

God the Father wants us eternally
with Him forever in heaven.

Jesus: You are the children of
light that I am sending forth into
the darkened world. This is an
urgent request to go forth and to
carry the messages of My love to
this world that is suffering and in
I am calling out to you. I have
given you the Mighty Medicine
for the sick world.
I am on fire for love of My
precious souls.
I love you, I love you, I love you.

Come to My Heart, filled with
burning love for My precious souls.
You have been called, you have
been chosen.

R. Reaching out might be scary, but
we need to do God’s will.

If we don’t open the window we
can’t let the air in.

Jesus wants relationship with us.

We open our heart to God: Father,
Son and Holy Spirit.

We were created to know, love
and serve God.

To know God as we should, we
must desire this.

We put God first!!!

When we have a love relationship
we allow ourselves to be known.
We must seek to know God deeply.
We give time and attention to this.

Knowing God is what we were
created for, nothing else can fill
us like God, we were created to
be filled by God.


The Carrying of the Cross

1. Jesus: I carried the cross,
    laden with your sins.
    I was covered with blood.
2. Jesus: I fell under the cross
    3 times, I could hardly get up.
3. Jesus: They beat Me and tore
    My flesh, hitting Me when I
    was down with the cross on
    top of Me, laden with the sins
    of men.
4. Jesus: I came for love of you,
    I came to pay for your sins
    because I love you.
5. Jesus: God the Father created
    you to know, love, and serve
6. Jesus: I love you so much, I
    give you Myself in the
    Eucharist, I am truly present
    in My Divinity and humanity.
7. Jesus: I long to come to you,
    I love you so much.
    I give you Myself in the
8. Jesus: Repent of your sins, I
    came to you and give you
    such gifts of love. I am love.
9. Jesus: I give you Divine love.

10. Sing: I Am your Sacred Heart

R. Jesus' body was beaten for
our sins. He gave His Blood. His
flesh was torn, Jesus didn’t give
in, He fell 3 times under the
weight of the cross. Jesus’
anguish was so great, He sweat
blood in the Garden.

Jesus gave the last beat of His
Heart, the last drop of His blood.
Jesus loved.
Jesus did not hold back.
Through His pierced Heart, the
Church was born, what flowed
out was blood and water: water
for baptism,
Blood for the Eucharist.

John 19: 31-37

The pierced Christ

It was the Day of Preparation, and to avoid the bodies’ remaining on the cross during the Sabbath—since that Sabbath was a day of special solemnity—the Jews asked Pilate to have the legs broken and the bodies taken away. Consequently the soldiers came and broke the legs of the first man who had been crucified with him and then of the other. When they came to Jesus, they saw he was already dead, and so instead of breaking his legs one of the soldiers pierced his side with a lance; and immediately there came out blood and water. This is the evidence of one who saw it—true evidence, and he knows that what he says is true—and he gives it so that you may believe as well. Because all this happened to fulfil the words of scripture: 

   Not one bone of his will be broken

and again, in another place scripture says:

   They will look to the one
      whom they have pierced.


The Crucifixion

1. Jesus: I love you so much,
    I died for you.
2. Jesus: I am the Sacred Heart
    of deepest love.
    My Heart burns for love of
    My precious souls.
    I love you, I would die for
    you today.
    I am love.
3. Jesus: I watch you precious
    one, I dwell in your heart and
    My love flows into the world.
4. Jesus: I want to be one in you
    and you one in Me.
5. Jesus: I have called you by
    name in this Movement to tell
    men of My love I have for all
    men. I died for you.
    I love you so much.
6. Jesus: When I was dying on
    the cross, I gave you My
    Mother as your Mother.
7. Jesus: Mary is your Mother of
    She loves you so much.
    Mary is My Mother.
    Mary loves you more than
    any earthly mother.
    Call on Mary in your need.
8. Jesus: Say the Hail Mary, pray
    to her. Mary crushes the head
    of Satan.
9. Come to me Lord and possess
    my soul, come into my heart
    and permeate my soul.

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
