Consecration Prayer for Peace

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

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

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

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

 

Prayer for Grace for Election and our Country

Dear Father united to Jesus in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, the Sacrifice of Calvary sacramentally made present, celebrated around the world, in the Holy Spirit. We offer up all we do united to the Mass. We unite in one mind and one heart as members of the mystical body of Christ, with Christ our head in the pure and holy Hearts of Jesus and Mary, through the powerful intercession of Mary with all the angels and saints and souls in purgatory, and we beg for the saving grace, for our country, the United States. Please help us. We further pray for unity to always do the will of God in love. We spread the Blood of Jesus on the leaders and people of the United States and cast the devil into hell. We consecrate our country to the Sacred Heart and Immaculate Heart and all our dioceses, and beg for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit. God help us. We pray for our families, the priests, the Church and the world. In the Name of Jesus please hear us, we pray. We pray for our president and leaders. We pray that we are united as one nation under God to work together in love as God wants.

Excerpt from The Spirituality of Fatima
by Fr. Edward Carter, S.J.

July 13, 1917

    "The war (World War I, then raging) is going to end. But if people do not stop offending God, another and worse one will begin in the reign of Pius XI. When you shall see a night illuminated by an unknown light [January 2, 1938], know that this is the great sign that God gives you that He is going to punish the world for its many crimes by means of war, hunger, and persecution of the Church and the Holy Father. (12)

    "To prevent this, I shall come to ask for the consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart and the Communion of Reparation on the five first Saturdays. If my requests are granted, Russia will be converted and there will be peace. If not, she will scatter her errors throughout the world, provoking wars and persecutions of the Church. The good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer, and various nations will be destroyed....

    "But in the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph, the Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, Russia will be converted, and a certain period of peace will be granted to the world." (13)

 12. 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). pp.4-5.

R. The question becomes,
how could we manage
without each other
and how fleeting are the
days of - our lives.
How precious is love and
memories with those we
love in our heart..

Every day is a gift from
God to know, to love, to
live, even in suffering.
Remember Jesus lived
many days of suffering in
His public life, in His
passion.
It reminds me of the "I
watched you message".. in
the Red Rosary Book.
The eyes of God are upon
us, like our Heavenly
Father watching and
caring for His little child.

Go to Him, He loves us so
much
And Mary is Mother at our
side.
God gave us Jesus
incarnate in the womb of
Mary.
God the Father chose us,
and loved us into
existence - He loves me.

Jesus carried the cross.
That was very hard.
Love you
Rita

There is always the gifts
of our Father, we are the
little sons and daughters.
He gives us what we
need, many times, that
strengthens us spiritually,
but we feel very tired,
indeed.

We know God puts us
where we are needed and
if He wants us there we
should serve Him the very
best we can, because
that’s where the Father
wants us.

God is with us, even in
battle, every day, look at
Jesus carrying the cross.
He endured it and never
gave up.
Men in the Church, saints,
have followed Him, some
shedding their blood like
Jesus did.
We have been given such
a gift in the Church.
Courage to fight the fight
for truth and justice in the
name of Christ, Jesus.

Jesus lived the quiet life
30 years
He lived the public life 3
years.
He died on the cross 3
hours.
He was in the tomb 3 days.
Jesus rose on the third day
- look at the Church 2023.
Pray as Jesus told Fr.
Carter, S.J. for the priest, the
Church and the world.

A priest is a gift from God.

R. Fr. Joe is not doing so good
now, but he blessed and
helped so many and has
15 books of homilies.
 

I am the Good Shepherd.
The Good Shepherd laid
down His life for His sheep.

A hired man sees the wolf coming
Abandons the sheep
And runs away
And the sheep scatter
Because he is only a hired man. 
Ref. John 10: 11-13


Jesus endured to the end.

Perseverance.

Jesus died, but He rose
the third day.

Bombing in Poland 1939.

Killing, awful blood shed,
women, children.

God brought Pope John Paul
II from Poland.
Pope John Paul II helped
the whole world
where World War II
tore things apart.

13. Ibid., p.5
 

R. Pope consecrating to
Immaculate Heart tomorrow.

Jesus came down here.
Jesus walked amongst us
and He suffered to His death.

Lord of life and death.

Harboring angry feelings
Almost rage

Deep inside
Can only be healed
through finding Jesus.

We all need forgiveness
from Jesus who died for
our sins.
We must go to Him and
ask for this forgiveness for
sin which offends God.

Jesus loves us so, He
never gave up, He endured.
He gives Himself to us
today.

    Now they were also leading out two others, criminals, to be executed with him.

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

Then he said, 'Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.' He answered him, 'In truth I tell you, today you will be with me in paradise.'

 10. Matthew 27:46

And about the ninth hour, Jesus cried out in a loud voice, 'Eli, eli, lama sabachthani?' that is, 'My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?'

 

 

Meditating on the Rosary Aves

This bead-by-bead commentary on the mysteries of the Rosary serves to enhance our awareness of the powerful events involving Our Lord and Our Lady during His mission of salvation among us. Reciting one thought before each Hail Mary in every decade gives just another small aid in concentrating on the great wonder of the Messianic story.

Joyful Mysteries

The Annunciation

  1. The angel Gabriel appeared to Mary and asked her to be the mother of the Messiah.

  2. She said yes. Mary had such faith! She always complied with the Father's will.

  3. She was filled with the Holy Spirit and the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us.

  4. There was such a bond between Jesus and Mary from the very moment of conception!

  5. She felt His life grow within her womb. His Most Sacred Heart was formed in her womb through the Holy Spirit.

  6. Jesus wants to be alive in our hearts. We should carry His life with great joy in our being.

  7. The Spirit wants to be alive in our very being with the fire of His love.

  8. We are children of God. Mary mothers us as she mothered Jesus.

  9. It is through Mary that we are led to intense love in His most precious Heart.

  10. It is truly the love of these Two Hearts that will lead us to union with God.

 

The Visitation

  1. Mary went to visit her cousin Elizabeth.

  2. When she arrived, the child in Elizabeth's womb leapt for joy at the presence of Mary with Jesus in her womb.

  3. Mary was filled with the Holy Spirit and cried out, with a loud voice, the Magnificat.

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

  5. "Because He has regarded the lowliness of His handmaid, from all generations they will call me blessed."

  6. God Who is mighty has done great things to us in His name.

  7. Jesus is no less present in our hearts after Communion than He was in Mary's womb.

  8. Should we not jump up and cry out that we truly receive the one, true God in our hearts?

  9. Are we open to the Holy Spirit to fill us with the love of the one, true God and Mary in our hearts?

  10. It is through her pure and tender Heart that we will love God more closely.

 

The Birth of Jesus

  1. Joseph was filled with joy to see the splendor of the night, but with sorrow to see Jesus born in such poverty.

  2. Not a place for Jesus to lay His head-in a manger at birth, His head on a cross at His death-both bare wood.

  3. He showed us the way, in total submission to the will of the Father. He loved us so much that He was born a human, God-made-man.

  4. What the birth of this baby, the child Jesus, did to change the world for all time!

  5. This is Jesus, the Son of God, come to free the world of its sins.

  6. He came as a little baby. He was born of Mary in the little town of Bethlehem.

  7. This is how it is with Jesus today: there is no blare of trumpets, no roll of drums. Jesus comes quietly at every Mass.

  8. The only blare of trumpets and roll of drums are in our hearts.

  9. If you are not aware of Christ truly present in the Eucharist, you miss the big event.

  10. Jesus, the same Jesus who was born in Bethlehem, comes to us in our hearts.

 

The Presentation of Jesus in the Temple

  1. Mary took Jesus to the temple to be presented to the Father.

  2. Simeon told Mary of the future sufferings of Jesus and Mary.

  3. Joseph, in his sorrow at hearing of the sufferings, was comforted by the joy that so many souls would be redeemed.

  4. They returned to Galilee to the town of Nazareth and Jesus grew in wisdom and strength.

  5. Mary, with such love, beheld her precious Son!

  6. She gazed into His precious baby eyes.

  7. Simeon predicted that her heart would be pierced with a sword.

  8. Her heart would be pierced with a sword for, just as she held His baby body at birth, she would hold his lifeless body under the cross.

  9. How well Mary would know the Heart of Jesus! She would ponder all the events of His life in her Heart.

  10. It is through her most loving Heart that we grow in fervent love for His Heart.

 

The Finding of Jesus in the Temple

  1. When Jesus was twelve years old, the Holy Family went to Jerusalem for Passover.

  2. When it was over Mary and Joseph had traveled a day's journey before they realized Jesus was not with them.

  3. With sorrow in their hearts they returned to Jerusalem to find Him.

  4. After searching for Him for three days, they found Him in the temple talking to the doctors.

  5. The doctors were astounded at His wisdom.

  6. He said He had to be about His Father's business.

  7. Jesus teaches us today through His word.

  8. He went down and was subject to them.

  9. Mary, if we ever lose Jesus, lead us back to His tender Heart.

  10. Jesus, help us to love Mary more.

$ 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
