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.

R. Do you feel the presence of the
Father, Son and Holy Spirit?

The Father, has a plan for us.
God wants this relationship with us.
We are here to grow in our intimacy
with God.
In this Lent we can spend time
alone with God and think of the
presence of the Father, Son and
Holy Spirit in our heart.

Jesus: Be alone with Me, close
your eyes, think of the presence of
God, All three Persons, dwelling in
your heart.

Meditate, empty your mind, think
only of the presence of God. Make
a spiritual communion, now.

Take time, be alone with Me.

Everyday during Lent, morning and
night, empty your mind, make a
spiritual communion, think of God’s
presence with you, close your eyes,
be alone with Me.

This will help you to grow in God’s
presence all day, the more you do
this, all thru Lent.

I went into the desert to pray for
40 days and be with My Father,
practice this every day during Lent.
Being alone with God. Knowing
My presence!!!!

Novena to St. Joseph, Patron and Father (2024)

Begins March 11, 2024 - March 19, 2024

Dear Saint Joseph,

I turn to you, you who cared and
protected the child Jesus and the
Virgin Mary.
You taught men and women, the
love of God by your example in life,
and by your faithfulness of living
your calling in greatest commitment
and love.

You loved Mary and Jesus with the
most gentle, bonds of love.

You showed us how you
lived in loving conformity to the
Heavenly Father’s will.

You guided Jesus and Mary’s precious
lives with the Holy Spirit, Spouse of
the Virgin Mother of God.

Protect us and our family this day and
every day of our lives, like
you did the Holy Family of Nazareth.
We seek your powerful intercession.

How intimately you knew and loved
Jesus and Mary. You were so close to
them. You showed us love.

Your heart was pure and gentle and
yet you were strong in being their
manly protector on earth, intercede
for us to depend more and more on
God for all our needs, for when we
are weak we are strong in God.

St. Joseph please intercede for a
peaceful and holy death for us and
our sick loved ones.
Amen.

St. Joseph help us now in this nine
day novena to you.
Amen.

 

March 16, 2024

R. We make choices every day.
Our choices have consequences.

If we think we can do what we want
and everybody else can do what they
want
without God,

It ends in chaos and disorder.

The more we live a disordered life, the
stronger our bad habits become.
We have to die to those ways not
like Jesus to rise to new life.

God created us to know, love and
serve Him.
God created us in love and wants us
to be converted, from these bad ways.

God loves us and Jesus is our Savior.
Jesus died a brutal death to pay for
our sins.

We have a free will.

Sing: Choose Life

The Father said at the Baptism of Jesus
“This is My beloved Son in whom I am
well pleased.”

Then Jesus began His public life to teach us.

Then at the Transfiguration the Father says
“This is My beloved Son in whom I am
well pleased, listen to Him.”

Listen to Jesus!

Sonship, we are the children of God.
Baptism gives us a sharing in His life.

Romans 8:14-17

All who are guided by the Spirit of God are sons of God; for what you received was not the spirit of slavery to bring you back into fear; you received the Spirit of adoption, enabling us to cry out, 'Abba, Father!' The Spirit himself joins with our spirit to bear witness that we are children of God. And if we are children, then we are heirs, heirs of God and joint-heirs with Christ, provided that we share his suffering, so as to share his glory.

 
Mary: Thy will be done on earth as
it is in heaven.
The old Eve did her own will.

I am the New Eve.

Jesus is the New Adam.
I am the most perfect handmaid of
Jesus.
My guiding principle was loving the
Father’s will always.

Who is on your throne?
Eve did her own will, opposed to God.

Jesus paid the price for those putting
their will before God.

One program, the Father’s will.

Jesus died doing the Father’s will.
God is unity.
God is love.

Satan is division, isolation, disobedience.
Satan brings such things when people
give into him.
“Get behind Me Satan, Jesus said
when Peter was off.

R. Look what the saints endured to
spread God’s love.
We see in the lives of the saints joy in
them, the light of Christ in their eyes.
Jesus is light and in Him is no darkness.

We see in the lives of the saints, some
were sinners and then lived a life of
conversion.
A life of love rooted in Jesus.
Jesus is the light of the world.


R. The baby Jesus had little toes and
fingers like any little baby.
The baby Jesus had a little head and
little chunky, baby arms and legs.

The baby Jesus in Bethlehem was the
Son of God, second Person of the
Blessed Trinity.


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.



Jesus is the Light of the world.
The Light shines in the darkness.
 

Jesus was Mary’s little boy child.
Mary loved the will of the Father.
Jesus, the Son of God, Son of Mary.
 


 





Mary is our Mother.
Mary loves us so much.




Many of us are baptized as infants.
God gives us a sharing in His life in Baptism.



Joyful Mysteries

The Annunciation

1. Luke 1: 26-38

In the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent by God to a town in Galilee called Nazareth, to a virgin betrothed to a man named Joseph, of the House of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary. He went in and said to her, ‘Rejoice, you who enjoy God’s favour! The Lord is with you.’ She was deeply disturbed by these words and asked herself what this greeting could mean, but the angel said to her, ‘Mary, do not be afraid; you have won God’s favour. Look! You are to conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you must name him Jesus. He will be great and will be called Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his ancestor David; he will rule over the House of Jacob for ever and his reign will have no end.’ Mary said to the angel, ‘But how can this come about, since I have no knowledge of man?’ The angel answered, ‘The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will cover you with its shadow. And so the child will be holy and will be called Son of God. And I tell you this too: your cousin Elizabeth also, in her old age, has conceived a son, and she whom people called barren is now in her sixth month, for nothing is impossible to God.’ Mary said, ‘You see before you the Lord’s servant, let it happen to me as you have said.’ And the angel left her. 

2. We see the mystery in Mary’s life.
    Mary conceived the child Jesus
    through the power of the Holy Spirit.
3. Mary is a mystery, she was conceived
    without sin.

4. R. The Father loved Mary so much that He chose Mary as the instrument whereby Jesus, the Son would come into this world. The Father chose a woman to bring His Son, Jesus into this world. He chose the Virgin Mary. This shows us how dear and special Mary is to our Father.

5. R. Jesus is teaching us more and more about the intimacy between His Heart and His Mother’s Heart. From the first moment of conception Jesus grew within the womb of His Mother. His life was supported by her heart beating within her body. Jesus’ Heart, the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus was formed within her womb. Such intimacy for the Two Hearts beating in the same body. We see Mary is the life support of the Child Jesus as He grew within her body.

Rita said, “Mary is appearing, Mary is so beautiful. Mary is smiling.”

6. Sing: See the Eyes That Look at Mary

7. R. Go deep within yourself and know the Presence of the Almighty God within your graced baptized soul. When we are in the state of grace, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit dwell within us in such a special way. Feel the presence and make a Spiritual Communion to Jesus to feel His presence. We make this rosary a special time that our hearts may be drawn closer and closer to Your Hearts, dear, Jesus and Mary.

2. R. Mary, our beloved Mother loves us so dearly, watching us with such Maternal love every second. Let us focus on the love of these Two Hearts and make this rosary a time when we share this love intimately and deep in our heart with Them.

9. Sing: Our Lady of Clearwater

10. Sing: The Rosary Song

The Visitation

1. Luke 1: 39-45

Mary set out at that time and went as quickly as she could into the hill country to a town in Judah. She went into Zechariah’s house and greeted Elizabeth. Now it happened that as soon as Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the child leapt in her womb and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. She gave a loud cry and said, ‘Of all women you are the most blessed, and blessed is the fruit of your womb. Why should I be honoured with a visit from the mother of my Lord? Look, the moment your greeting reached my ears, the child in my womb leapt for joy. Yes, blessed is she who believed that the promise made her by the Lord would be fulfilled.’ 

2. My soul doth magnify the Lord and
    my spirit rejoices in God my Savior.
3. God’s will was Mary was chosen to
    be the Mother of God.
4. We are chosen in our vocation by God.
    We have a free will to say “yes” or “no”
    to God’s Plan.
5. We should never try to block another
    person’s vocation because we don’t like it.
6. Mary was a Virgin.
    Jesus came to a Virgin.
7. Mary was Immaculately conceived.
    Mary is pure gift.
    Mary is a mystery.
8. The 5 Blasphemies against Mary are
    1) against her Motherhood
    2) her Immaculate Conception
    3) against her Virginity
    4) against her images


    5) The blasphemies of those who publicly
        seek to sow in the hearts of children
        indifference or scorn, or even hatred
        of this Immaculate Mother.

9. Mary appeared to me and asked us to
    pray on the 5ths because of these
    blasphemies and the 5 wounds of Christ.
10. Mary had great faith. Mary obeyed the
    angel.
    Joseph had a dream, he obeyed too,
    Joseph is the foster Father of Jesus.

The Birth of Jesus

1. Luke 2: 8-14

In the countryside close by there were shepherds out in the fields keeping guard over their sheep during the watches of the night. An angel of the Lord stood over them and the glory of the Lord shone round them. They were terrified, but the angel said, ‘Do not be afraid. Look, I bring you news of great joy, a joy to be shared by the whole people. Today in the town of David a Saviour has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. And here is a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger.’ And all at once with the angel there was a great throng of the hosts of heaven, praising God with the words:

    Glory to God in the highest heaven,    

2. Make your heart a bed of soft hay, ready
    for Jesus to lay His little Infant head.
3. This can be done by acts of tender love
    to God and one another. Sweet, loving
    acts toward others God asks us to love.
4. Be there in the stable. Envision yourself
    looking down at the little sweet baby
    in the crib.
5. This little baby is the King of Kings and
    Lord of Lords.
6. Jesus was born in Bethlehem.
7. Mary went there, pregnant on a donkey.
    It was God’s will.
8. The Star was a sign from God the Father.
    Think, the angels sang.
    At the Baptism of Jesus, the Father said
    “This is My Beloved Son, in whom, I
    am well pleased.
9. The star shown bright. The Kings came.

    Sing: We Three Kings

10. Is there room in our hearts for Jesus
    to dwell there?

The Presentation in the Temple

1. Luke 2: 25-35

Now in Jerusalem there was a man named Simeon. He was an upright and devout man; he looked forward to the restoration of Israel and the Holy Spirit rested on him. It had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not see death until he had set eyes on the Christ of the Lord. Prompted by the Spirit he came to the Temple; and when the parents brought in the child Jesus to do for him what the Law required, he took him into his arms and blessed God; and he said:

    Now, Master, you are letting 
        your servant go in peace 
    as you promised; 
    for my eyes have seen the salvation 
    which you have made ready 
        in the sight of the nations; 
    a light of revelation for the gentiles 
    and glory for your people Israel.

As the child’s father and mother were wondering at the things that were being said about him, Simeon blessed them and said to Mary his mother, ‘Look, he is destined for the fall and for the rise of many in Israel, destined to be a sign that is opposed—and a sword will pierce your soul too — so that the secret thoughts of many may be laid bare.'   

2. Sing: Little Baby hands and Feet

3. Simeon told Mary and Jesus of sufferings
    to come. A sword too, will pierce your
    heart, Oh Mary.

4. November 26, 2021- The Seven Sorrows

The Prophecy of Simeon

R. Mary, you went to the temple with your little baby Jesus, so full of joy and proud of the little baby and Simeon told you
"This child is destined for the fall and rise of Israel, and a sword too will pierce your heart, oh Mary."

You knew of sufferings to come, Mary, joys and sufferings, because to know God, like we do on earth, there are sufferings and joys to know God more and more deeply.

Oh God we know of Your promise to those who love and serve You, and yet we too know we are called to endure suffering daily sometimes, and in our lives here below.

Jesus, You showed us You carried the heavy cross to Calvary, You mounted it and died a brutal death for love of us.
Love of others, bids us to endure the sufferings of this life and to know more joy in knowing God and the everlasting life still to come in heaven.

Oh most Sacred Heart of Jesus Your love for us is a burning flame of endless, enduring love.
Thank You,

Amen

  

5. November 26, 2021- The Seven Sorrows

The Flight into Egypt

R. Babies today are slaughtered in their mother’s womb in abortion.
We see the slaughter of the innocent that made the Holy family have to flee into Egypt.
Suffering, killing little ones God created in love by evil men.
Oh God, slaughter of children occurred in the Holocaust, brutal, terrible killings of babies and young children, some in the arms of their mother led into gas chambers and showers.
Children separated from parents, watching parents persecuted and some seeing their death.

Slaughter of the innocent.
Slaughter of innocent minds.
Evil done to little children in sex abuse.
Oh God, Oh my Jesus, You and the Holy Family knew the sufferings that love endured.
You taught us - love sacrifices, obeys God’s will and gives - putting God first and obedience to the commandments of God.

Dignity, respect, love, obedience to God’s Law,
Putting God first.
The Holy Family suffered the flight into Egypt.
A sword too will pierce your heart, Oh Mary,
And Mary said "May it be done to me according to your word." Mary suffered so for her children she loved so much. The children of the world - love suffers, Love sacrifices.

 

6. November 26, 2021- The Seven Sorrows

Jesus was Lost in the Temple

R. Mary and Joseph suffered so looking for Jesus for 3 days.
Three days losing one’s child must have felt like a long time, but they knew on top of this, it was Jesus, The Son of God.

Suffering, think of all the moms and dads that have children lost in their spiritual life.
Is this a big cross?
Mary appeared over and over again at the Holy Spirit Center, crying out about her lost children of the world.

Mary’s message was hard to experience.

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
 

R. Mary loves us more than any earthly mother.
To Mary old people lost are her lost children.

Mary begs us to take the message of Our Lady of Clearwater seriously.
Last 5th she said, "souls are going to hell tonight" and begged us not to block her message.

Oh, please help us deliver this message of Mary.

A sword too, will pierce your heart, oh Mary.

 

7. November 26, 2021- The Seven Sorrows

Mary and Jesus meet on the way to Calvary

R. Oh Mary looked into the face of Jesus, His head beaten, bloodied and His head crowned with thorns.
Jesus was in such suffering, His torn body, carrying the heavy cross with our sins.

Jesus saw her red, tear-filled face, her pain so terrible, and Their eyes met in sorrow and joy of deep unity between this Mother and Son.
There is joy in deep suffering. It is unity, many times, deep unity to God.

Oh the eyes of Jesus met Mary, comfort and agony both. Comfort and agony beyond our comprehension.
Love is sacrifice, we see.
Love can be the deep suffering of carrying a cross too, or just daily suffering,
with addiction, loss, disease, heartache, abuse,
and many more...

Mary cries for she knew how much Jesus suffered and she suffered for men who reject God’s love, some losing their souls in serious sin without repenting - in stubborn anger and hatred.
And Mary cried for her children and a sword too will pierce your heart, Oh Mary. Amen.

 

8. November 26, 2021- The Seven Sorrows

Jesus Died on the Cross

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

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
 

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

Jesus died for us.

Jesus is taken down from the Cross

R. Mary received Jesus’ body under the cross.
Mary touched the lifeless body of her precious Son, Jesus.
It has come full circle, Simeon told her as she brought her little baby there now 33 years later, what Simeon said happened.
A lifetime of suffering and joy, God the Father has allowed Mary to appear 27 years to deliver her message. November 5, 2021 in Clearwater she cried, "Souls will go to hell tonight, do not block my message."

 

10. November 26, 2021- The Seven Sorrows

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.

The Finding in the Temple

1. Luke 2: 41-52

Every year his parents used to go to Jerusalem for the feast of the Passover. When he was twelve years old, they went up for the feast as usual. When the days of the feast were over and they set off home, the boy Jesus stayed behind in Jerusalem without his parents knowing it. They assumed he was somewhere in the party, and it was only after a day’s journey that they went to look for him among their relations and acquaintances. When they failed to find him they went back to Jerusalem looking for him everywhere. 

   46  It happened that, three days later, they found him in the Temple, sitting among the teachers, listening to them, and asking them questions; and all those who heard him were astounded at his intelligence and his replies. They were overcome when they saw him, and his mother said to him, ‘My child, why have you done this to us? See how worried your father and I have been, looking for you.’ He replied, ‘Why were you looking for me? Did you not know that I must be in my Father’s house?’ But they did not understand what he meant. He went down with them then and came to Nazareth and lived under their authority. His mother stored up all these things in her heart. And Jesus increased in wisdom, in stature, and in favour with God and with people.

2. Mary and Joseph took Jesus to the
    temple when He was 12 years old.
3. Jesus lived the quiet life until He was 30.
4. This gave us a little peek in on Jesus
    when He was 12.
5. Mary loved the Father’s will.
    This is one of the mysteries, this mystery.
6. Jesus always obeyed His Father’s will.
7. This mystery is a mystery, indeed.

8. Sing: God’s Love

9. Act of Consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus

Lord Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the flock, I consecrate myself to Your most Sacred Heart. From Your pierced Heart the Church was born, the Church You have called me, as a member of Shepherds of Christ Associates, to serve in a most special way. You reveal Your Heart as a symbol of Your love in all its aspects, including Your most special love for me, whom You have chosen as Your companion in this most important work. Help me to always love You in return. Help me to give myself entirely to You. Help me always to pour out my life in love of God and neighbor! Heart of Jesus, I place my trust in You!

10. Act of Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary

Dear Blessed Virgin Mary, I consecrate myself to your maternal and Immaculate Heart, this Heart which is symbol of your life of love. You are the Mother of my Savior. You are also my Mother. You love me with a most special love as a member of Shepherds of Christ Associates, a movement created by your Son as a powerful instrument for the renewal of the Church and the world. In a return of love, I give myself entirely to your motherly love and protection. You followed Jesus perfectly. You are His first and perfect disciple. Teach me to imitate you in the putting on of Christ. Be my motherly intercessor so that, through your Immaculate Heart, I may be guided to an ever closer union with the pierced Heart of Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the flock.

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
