Prayer for Grace for our Country

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

 

A Prayer for Intimacy with the Lamb, the Bridegroom of the Soul

     Oh Lamb of God, Who take away the sins of the world, come and act on my soul most intimately. I surrender myself, as I ask for the grace to let go, to just be as I exist in You and You act most intimately on my soul. You are the Initiator. I am the soul waiting Your favors as You act in me. I love You. I adore You. I worship You. Come and possess my soul with Your Divine Grace, as I experience You most intimately.

Picture of the Sacred Heart of Jesus I Love You

 April 13, 1994

 Words of Jesus. Read before the Tabernacle.

Jesus:  How, child, do I, Jesus, tell you I love you? You hold on to silly things when God is in your midst and is ardently loving you. I am Jesus Christ, the Son of God. I am writing to each precious child this day. I am on fire for love of you. I remain in the Eucharist to be with you with My ardent love. I did not want to leave My beloved ones at the Last Supper. I love you so, My dear and ardently loved children. I remain with you this day in the Blessed Sacrament, the same Jesus Who died a brutal death on the Cross.

    Do you know I am truly present there? Do you know that God waits every day for you in the tabernacle? Do you comprehend even a minute amount of My love? You will never know of how I love you on earth.

    I, Jesus, truly the Son of God, came to earth a man and suffered a brutal death for love of you. I love you so much! I remain with you this day. I long for your love. I want you to come and be with Me in front of the tabernacle. I wait, I yearn for you to come and whisper your love to Me. I am a person and I love you this day, with such an ardent on-fire love! No human could ever compare a speck to My love for you.

    I wait, little ones, in the tabernacle. I wait for you to come and receive Me in Communion. I want you to want Me so much you cannot wait to come and receive Me. I want to be the love, the center of your life!

    I am Jesus. I am the Son of God. I am writing to you this day. I want to possess your very soul and live in you. I have all you need, sweet ones. Oh, you are so blind! I long for your union with Me. I wrote the book of love. I instituted it, yet you go to the world for your love and do not even come to Me! Oh, I love you, little ones. Little ones, beloved of the Father, loved by the Holy Spirit, mothered by My very own mother! What more can I say? The rest is up to you!

    I give you your will with such love and I want your love freely given. I am God. What do you think you could ever need that I do not give you? I am the Savior of this world. I am Jesus, the Son of God. I am waiting for you. I am longing for you. I am yearning for you. I am God. I have all you ever will need!

    Surrender this life to Me. Pray My Prayer for Union with Me. I want to possess your soul and operate from your very being. I am Jesus. I am the Son of God. I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I am Who am. I died and rose on the third day.

    Harken to My call, harken to My pleading. Spend your days in love with Me. Nothing matters unless it is rooted in Me and rooted in My love. I am the Son of God. I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I love you with the tenderest love. I am waiting this day for just you, My beloved one. Come to Me for I am the tenderest of all hearts. I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

Sorrowful Mysteries
Before the Tabernacle
 

The Agony in the Garden

R. Let us thank Jesus for His presence here with us, that the Almighty God is truly present in His Divinity and humanity, in this very room with us.

1. R. Let us be with Jesus as He kneels in the garden and let us look as if we are right there with Him. Let us identify with Jesus. Let us go to His Heart and feel as He feels - deep love for us. Jesus suffered so for His beloved ones, that He loves the souls so much. Jesus knew their rejection in the garden.

2. R. You do not realize how Jesus suffered in His Heart for love of His beloved creatures. We take His love for granted and He calls out to us from the tabernacle over and over again to come and to be with Him. Can we even imagine that the Almighty God - God, is present and in this room with us at this moment? We should bow and kiss the ground for God is truly present and He remains with us because of His great love that He has for us.

3. R. Do we know how He truly suffered in His Heart? We know that He was in such agony that He sweat blood. But, can you imagine the agony to make Him sweat blood?

4. R. Our hearts cry out for love and Jesus tells us over and over again in these letters how He truly loves us. But many times we do not hear the words that He speaks to us. We do not realize that He is truly speaking to us. That Jesus loves us so much this day. That is why Jesus is speaking to us. He has called us here to be His Apostles, to go out to the world and to spread His love to a world that is suffering. Let us take this so seriously this calling of Jesus.

5. R. I am a receiver of these messages. The messages are delivered to you. The Almighty God is speaking to you because of His great love for you. Of all of the people on the face of this earth, He has chosen us and called us to this special apostolate.

6. R. When I read the letters in the Blue Book, word after word is filled with His burning love, but many times I do not hear the depth of His love. He tells me to read these letters as a love letter from somebody that I loved very much and is writing me this letter. Listen to the words that He speaks to us in this rosary and hear Jesus speak these words to us. Put aside everything in your heart and let Jesus talk to you in your heart and know that He loved each of us to His death on the cross.

7. R. I see You, Jesus, buckled over in pain in the garden, stooped over in such agony. I see the blood come down Your brow and I know that the greatest agony was not the agony of the physical torture that You were about to undergo, but the greatest agony was the agony  in Your heart to love as You love, and to be forgotten and rejected by those You loved so much – to be cursed, to be treated with such irreverence, to be ignored in the Blessed Sacrament as people walk before the Blessed Sacrament and do not even realize that the Almighty God is truly present. I feel the pain in my heart, Jesus, for I know that You love me and many times I do not realize the great love that You are outpouring to me and I do not say thank You for the great gifts that You give to me. I am so sorry, Jesus. Help me to love You more, my beloved Jesus, my Divine Savior!

8. Hail Mary

The Scourging at the Pillar

R. This is a special time that we use to meditate on the Passion of Jesus during Lent. As we meditate on all that Jesus suffered for us, we realize more how much He really, really loves us.

1. Jesus: You know not the day nor the hour - like a thief in the night I come to you, My beloved ones. Open your heart and let Me fill you with My burning love for you, I am truly present and in this room with you at this moment. Do not close your heart but open your heart wide and let Me touch you in a very, very special way. I am Jesus, your Savior, and I am waiting to be so close to you. I love you, My beloved ones.

2. Jesus: You are uniquely created by My Father with such beauty. Thank your Father for the great gifts that you are given. You are My beloved ones so special to Me.

3. R. I do not understand many times the ways of the Lord. I do not understand how God thinks, I only know that things happen and He tells us to accept all that He gives to us for He gives to us, out of the greatest love of His Heart. He gives to us, many times, sufferings. He gives and He takes away and how we try to lessen these sufferings – to take them away. But He shows us the path that He trod. He shows us how He was tied to the pillar and beaten. Yet, we think, we think that our life should be so full of joy. Jesus shows us in the death there is the Resurrection. Jesus gives us a sharing in His life. He gives us suffering and when we stay rooted in Him, when we accept all that He gives to us and identify with Him in the suffering, we too are raised to greater life in Him. What great blessings He gives to us in everything that we experience in our lives. He lived always as the Father wanted Him to live.

4. Hail Mary

5. R. One key to peace and joy in our lives, is in living according to the Father's will. Let us surrender to those things that God gives to us in our lives, that we do not understand. Let us surrender and accept the sufferings and the joys. Accept all those things that happen to us many times and take them to Jesus and identify with Him in all that He gives us that we may grow deeper and deeper in His life.

6. R. Jesus shows us the struggle. He shows us how He was beaten and His flesh was torn. He shows us how He was persecuted and spit on, but His Heart is always a Heart of love. Jesus, the Light of the world.

7. R. The heart within reflects the love of God. If we look at someone's face the way they act, they reflect this light within them. Let us ask for more and more grace to be sanctified by the Holy Spirit and to be more like Jesus, that our face will be so pure and so beautiful because it will reflect the light of the Almighty God, the God that is alive within our heart.

8. R. Jesus, it is so hard sometimes to be nice to others when they hurt us. Please give us all the grace that we need that we may grow more and more in our holiness, that we may love more, as You love, that we may be the lights that shine in the dark world. I see You, Jesus, at the pillar. I see You persecuted and whipped and spit on and Your face, Your face was filled with a beauty beyond all beauty, despite the blood, despite all of the wounds on Your precious face and Your head. Your face was filled with a radiance. Let us give ourselves to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary that what is reflected on our face is the love of God, the light of the Almighty God that lives within us so as you are in your hearts, you will be in this world.

9. R. I want to be so close to you.

Jesus: My dear child, it is in those moments that I am very close to you that you have a great joy, even in suffering. Pray for the gift of faith. Pray more and more to stay so close to Me in everything that you do. I am with you in your every action.

10. Song: A Song from Jesus

 

The Crowning of Thorns

R. Jesus, it is so hard many times during the day, it is frustrating, and then I hear You say, "this is how it is - accept all that I give to you as a great gift for I am teaching you mighty lessons in all that you experience.

Jesus: I am Jesus. I am attentive to your every need. I am burning and on fire for love of you, My beloved child. Open your heart now and feel My burning love deeply within your heart. Be tuned in to your heart. Put aside all of the thoughts in your mind that are not pure that are not of Me and be alone with Me. I love you truly with the deepest love. Surrender and let Me fill you with My Divine Love.

1. R. Jesus, I am so distracted many times and I want to stay one with you. Will You give to me the grace that I can identify with You in my every action, that I can feel the presence of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit within me, that I will feel the red vibrant beating of Your Heart and know Your endless love. I love You, Jesus, I love You. You are My beloved Jesus!

2. Jesus: I am a person, My dear child and I am alive and with you this day. I want to be so close to you but you must surrender and let me touch you in a special way. You must surrender, to let go of anger and unforgiveness in your heart, for those are not of Me. In order to unite with Me your heart must be filled with love. Surrender to Me and I will fill your heart with My burning love.

3. R. I see Jesus with His head crowned with thorns and blood as it streams down His face and into His eyes and His ears. He is truly a King. He is the Almighty God. So Mighty - and look at how they have treated our beloved Jesus! They pounded into His head a sharp crown of piercing thorns and they mocked Him and spit on Him and He withstood all of this treatment because of His great love for me. Jesus, help me to realize Your presence with me all the time, in my every action, and help me to read Your messages of deepest love with all my heart as you, my most ardent lover, writes these messages to me. I want to love You, Jesus. I want to love You with my whole heart.

4. Jesus: The more that you are one with Me, My child, the more that you will have peace and joy in your heart. Pray for this union. Pray the Prayer for Union with Jesus. Come to the Eucharist and beg for the deepest union with Me. All through the day ask for grace that you may be closer and closer to Me and My burning Heart of love.

5. R. I do not understand, Jesus, many times, certain events are so confusing in my life and I pray for grace. Will you help me to deal with the troubles in my life?

6. Jesus: Pray to Me, My beloved one. Pray for grace that you may be one in Me for I love you and want this deep intimacy with you. This is what your soul craves. I love you with the deepest burning love.

7. R. They gave to Jesus a dirty, purple robe, a crown on His head and a scepter and they mocked Him and Jesus withstood all of this the same as He withstood all of the treatment at the Pillar. Jesus was bound, Jesus, the Almighty God, and at any moment He could have released Himself, but for deepest love of us He withstood everything they gave to Him. Let us accept all the sufferings and all the joys in our lives and unite to Jesus and know that, in each of the experiences, He is allowing this that we may be closer and closer to Him.

8. Song: I Love You Jesus

9. Hail Mary
10. Hail Mary

 

The Carrying of the Cross

R. I want to be so close to You, Jesus. Let me feel You in my heart.

Jesus: My dear child, you must know that I am there, even when you do not feel Me close to you. You must stay one in Me at all times.

1. R. I see the host and I know you are there, to love and care for me. Who are we that God, the Father, so loved this world that He sent His only begotten Son, incarnate, in the womb of the Virgin Mary? Who are we that God remains and is truly present in this room. Look at how Jesus is ignored and forgotten by so many! Let us, with all our hearts, try to spend time alone each day with Jesus to go to Him whenever possible in the tabernacle, to be in Church with Him and to give Him all our love.

2. R. I see Jesus with a heavy cross on His back. I see the blood on His garment and I see Him struggle and see Mary to the side and she watches with such deep agony in her heart. A mother watching her child suffer. Mary watched Jesus carry this cross, unable to aid Him or to help Him! It is in meditating on the love between Jesus and Mary that we will understand more fully His love for us. Let us go to the heart of Mary – the pure and tender heart - and ask her to take us to the gentle Heart of her beloved Son.

3. R. Hear the cross as it goes over the ground. Hear the struggle of Jesus, His feet slipping as He walks, His body that is so weakened He can hardly move. How many times do we feel like this in our lives, that we too struggle but we do not take it and identify it with Jesus? How many times do we go and pray the Stations when we are going through a struggle in our lives? Jesus wants us to identify our sufferings with His. If we see Jesus struggle with the cross on His back, if we see Him slip and fall to the ground, how small our little struggles appear. Let us identify all of our sufferings with Jesus and know that in our suffering there is great life in Him.

4. R. Let us feel as we feel sometimes – abandoned and forgotten and wanting love so much, and let us feel the love between the eyes of Jesus and Mary as They look at each other on the way to Calvary. It is in dwelling in the heart of Mary, her heart that is in the Heart of Jesus, that we will feel this deep love. Instantly He can give us a grace when we are feeling rejected and forgotten and we will know Their love. Let us know, whether we feel Their love or not, that They are always there with us and let us be embraced by the love in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

5. Song: A Song from Jesus

6. Hail Mary

7. R. Let us walk with Jesus the way of the cross and know that after the death there is the Resurrection.

8. R. Nothing feeds the starved soul but the love of the Almighty God.

9. R. Jesus showed us how He surrendered. He gave Himself willingly as the men led Him away to be scourged. He allowed them to crown His head with thorns, and to spit on Him - and He accepted the cross without resistance. He asked us this day to accept all the suffering and joy that we are given as great gifts from God and know that we will grow deeper and deeper in His life if we accept everything that He gives to us. He gives us suffering and He takes it away. Why, so often, do we try to lift the suffering when it leads to greater life in Him? This is the true treasure – life rooted in Jesus.

10. Hail Mary

 

The Crucifixion

R. We think that we have control over our lives and then Jesus shows us how little control we truly have. Why do we resist the love of Jesus? Why do we not open our hearts so wide as He showed us - He opened His arms and He gave His all for love of us!

1. R. I know that Jesus knows that I fall but it is in surrender, in giving my all to Him, that I will unite in deepest union with Him. I give to You, Jesus, my all, everything in my life. I give to You and I unite it with Your sacrifice in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and offer it to the Father with greatest love, Jesus. I unite myself to You and I give myself to the Father. Jesus likes us to give ourselves to Him. Jesus wants our all. The Father wants us to be as a little child, dependent on Him. Let us pray for the grace to surrender and to know those things that we hold onto, that keep us from this great joy of loving Jesus more and more.

2. R. Jesus willingly gave His hands and they pounded nails into His hands. Jesus willingly gave His feet and they pounded nails into His feet. Jesus willingly hung on the cross for three agonizing hours to show us that He always followed the Father's will. This is the Almighty God, the Son of God. He came to show us the way. Why are we so willful that we do not surrender, for it is in surrendering that we will have peace and joy in our hearts. For He loves us so much that He gave Himself - He gave His life for love of us.

3. R. Let us pray in every Mass to unite with Jesus and offer ourselves to the Father and know how God loves us so much - loves us, to give Himself to us.

4. R. We are children of God. Look at humanity. Look how we are offending God this day. We are to be obedient to God, living as a family. God is our Father, Mary is our Mother. We must tell God how sorry we are for the sins of men for we are all creatures under God and He is our Creator.

    At every Mass let us beg, beg for forgiveness for us as creatures, for our offenses and the offenses of all mankind against God, and let us beg for the grace to love the Father, Son and Holy Spirit more and more. Love is a relationship. Love is between me and God. He gives Himself to me. If I want to have this relationship with God, I must give myself to Him. We cannot have a relationship if we do not give ourselves.

5. R. The more we give ourselves to Him, the more He outpours His grace to us. The sacrifice depends on our disposition within. Let all of our prayer, our celebration of the Mass, all be with a heart that is so sincere and in this sincerity He will outpour His grace. We cannot give God this lip service love - these little words that we say, words that do not come from the heart. God wants us to love Him with our whole heart, our whole soul, and our whole being and He shows us His love. We see His love when we look at His arms outstretched on the cross. See His head crowned with thorns. See His hands and feet nailed. This is the love that God truly has for us. Let us thank God for the great gifts that He gives to us and thank Him for His love.

6. R. Let us turn our minds and our hearts to thoughts of God's love. Let us hear the words that He is delivering this day in these messages, for I hear Him call out, "tell them, Rita, tell them, how I love them." How many times I have heard Him call out from the tabernacle and it breaks my heart to know how deeply He loves each soul and how many souls will be condemned to death forever and ever because they rejected His love. Jesus wants us to pray with all our hearts for our brothers. Jesus wants all the souls in heaven with Him. He shed His blood for each and every soul and many are living in a state of sin. On first Friday I heard Jesus call out "many souls are in hell. I will continue to give you experiences to know that you must give these messages out. The messages of My love. For this is the mighty medicine for the hurting world." Nothing will heal the hurt in this world but the burning love of Jesus. Not a lip service love where we go through the motions, but a love, where we love God with our whole heart, our whole soul and our whole being.

7. Jesus: You are My Apostles that I am sending out into this world. This world is covered with darkness. Consecrate your hearts daily to My Heart and to the heart of My Mother and come to Me in the Eucharist and I will outpour My love to you. Give yourselves freely and you will know love, love from the Almighty God. Nothing on the face of this earth feeds the starved soul but God's love.

8. Jesus: You search and you wonder and I am here with you this day. I am alive, I am alive, I am alive. I am Jesus Christ, the Almighty God. I am truly present and in this room with you. Open your heart now and let Me fill you with My burning love. Focus only on the love that I pour out to you and you will be the lights that shine in the dark world so as you are in your hearts, you will be in this word.

Song: God's Love

R. Let us strive to be filled with the beauty of God's love within. Let us rid ourselves of any anger or division with our brothers, for a heart that is divided does not unite with God. His Heart is love and there is not division in His Heart. In order to unite deeper and deeper with Him we must constantly rid ourselves of the debris in our hearts. Let us pray to the Holy Spirit to sanctify us and to clean our hearts that we will be ever closer to the Almighty God, that we will be with Him forever and ever in heaven, in such oneness, knowing and loving Him. Satisfaction beyond all satisfaction, and we will be satisfied for it is that which our starved souls crave.

9. Jesus: I am joining you in the Shepherds of Christ Movement, in one heart and one mind. Love each other with the deepest love. I am uniting you with a special bond. Consecrate your hearts daily and you will know a love as you cannot imagine. I am Jesus and I love you. My Heart is on fire for love of you. You have been called, you have been chosen, you are My Apostles to go into this world. I am speaking to you, My beloved ones, in these messages. Read each message and know My burning love for you.

10. R. He filled them with the Holy Spirit and they knew more and more the fire of God's love.

Song: Are Not Are Hearts

Jesus: This is the Mighty Medicine for your sick world, for the Church. I am calling you to this special mission, to pray for the renewal of the Church and the world. Come to Me and I will give you rest. I love you. I love you. I love you.

                From Tell My People

The Cross Leads to Life

Jesus: "My beloved priest-companion, tell My people that they must keep the lesson of the cross fresh in their consciousness. Remind them that I am the Christ of the Cross as well as the Christ of the Resurrection. I suffered tremendously on My way to death on the cross. My sacred flesh was so cruelly lacerated by the scourging. My sacred head was so cruelly and mockingly crowned with thorns. I was spat upon and made fun of. Exhausted by terrible suffering, I still had to carry the heavy cross to Calvary. There My sacred hands and feet were mercilessly pierced with nails. Oh, what pain this caused Me!

"I suffered all this most willingly--out of love for My Father and for all My people! Through My cross, through My suffering, I obtained new life for My people. Through My cruel and brutal death, I achieved Resurrection for Myself and all My people. My suffering was not an end in itself. It was a necessary passageway to obtain the life I came to give.

"My people must share in My cross, so that they may share more and more in My life. Remind My people, My dear friend, that suffering, when embraced according to My Father's will, leads to greater life here and hereafter. The cross, properly carried, always leads to a greater share in My Resurrection.

"Tell My people that the more they are united with Me in love, the easier is the carrying of the cross. The more one dwells in Me, the more I help that person to carry the cross. In this way, even the heaviest cross becomes relatively light.

"Carrying the cross does not mean to be in misery. Carrying one's cross in union with Me always allows a person to remain in peace. The cross does not take away peace and joy. Despite the pain involved, the cross gives increased peace and joy. I am Lord and Master. I eagerly desire that all listen to My words and live them!

"My people, come each day to My Heart and I will give you the light and strength to carry your cross according to Father's will! I love My people with an overwhelming love, and in this great love I give them this message."

Reflection: One does not have to reflect on the human condition for very long to be reminded of how much suffering exists in all parts of the world. And yet, the great tragedy concerning human suffering is not that there is so much of it, but rather that so much of it is apparently wasted. In God's plan, suffering is meant to lead to greater life, a greater share in Christ's Resurrection here and hereafter. Suffering does just that, if we relate to it according to God's will. To the extent we don't relate to the cross as God's will would have us, we miss the opportunity for suffering to be growth-promoting.

Jesus tells us about the cross and its linkage to life in the Gospel: "Then to all he said: 'If anyone wants to be a follower of mine, let him renounce himself and take up his cross everyday and follow me. For anyone who wants to save his life will lose it; but anyone who loses his life for my sake, that man will save it'" (Luke 9:23-24).

And St. Paul tells us: "We are in difficulties on all sides, but never cornered; we see no answer to our problems, but never despair; we have been persecuted, but never deserted; knocked down, but never killed; always, wherever we may be, we carry with us in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus, too, may always be seen in our body" (2 Corinthians 4:8-10).

 

Humility

Jesus: "My beloved priest-companion, keep telling My people of the great necessity of humility in the spiritual life. My saints, oh, how they realized the importance of this virtue!

"The world is filled with pride. Pride is the refusal to serve God. It is the refusal to do My Father's will. There is so much sin in today's world because there is so much pride.

"Tell My people to come to My Heart each day. There I will teach them the lesson of humility. There I will show them the riches which flow from humility! There I will teach them that the more they grow in humility, the more peace and joy and happiness they experience. Yes, let My people come to My Heart and learn these lessons. I am Lord and Master, and I desire that all respond to My request. I love My people with a tremendous love, and in this love I give them this message!"

Reflection: Humility is an important aspect of the Gospel message. Following are three such examples:

"Come to me, all you who labor and are overburdened, and I will give you rest. Shoulder my yoke and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. Yes, my yoke is easy and my burden light" (Matthew 11:28-30).

"Anyone who chooses the world for his friend turns himself into God's enemy. Surely you don't think scripture is wrong when it says: the spirit which he sent to live in us wants us for himself alone? But he has been even more generous to us, as scripture says: God opposes the proud but he gives generously to the humble" (James 4:4-6).

"What do you have that was not given to you? And if it was given, how can you boast as though it were not?" (1 Corinthians 4:7).

From Blue Book 10

March 26, 1996

Very carefully discerned by Fr. Carter

R. I came to All Saints Church before a beautiful Monstrance of gold that contained Our beloved Savior. He was adorned in light, the altar beneath shone with the brightest light and the cross behind was entirely silhouetted with the same celestial light. I was overwhelmed with the presence of God and cried deeply from the awe of it all.

    To be so aware of the Almighty God truly present in His splendor and glory—to know the presence of God, to see the glistening of the gold and the light and reflection of the cross behind Him—my beauteous love—words do not exist to describe the rapture of a heavenly embrace! I cry because of the immense awe within my being to know Him. God truly present in His majesty and glory and oh, God, I behold the presence of a heavenly court. You opened wide the heavens and lifted up the veil and I knew You in Your splendor and glory. I behold God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

    "I am the Way, the Truth and the Life." He is the Almighty God. He shows us the celestial lights with which He will light this earth. Many must surrender their hearts to His Heart and Mary's heart. It is in surrendering, the Spirit will move in the hearts of men and the light of God will shine on the darkened earth. Not with a light that you comprehend, but a light that is divinely granted—a light beyond all lights, a vision beyond all visions. It takes the surrender of minds and hearts to God. The Spirit cannot move in us when we are in control. Surrender and give Him our heart and He will make us fishers of men.

    We are His apostles in the Shepherds of Christ Movement. He is sending us out into the world to light the hearts with His burning love. We are chosen by Him and He is giving us abundant graces to grow in our union with Him. He will light this world with His burning love. Our hearts must be open. We must surrender and let go and reach beyond the senses, reach with our hearts. Pray for faith, pray for the vision of God.

Note:  I cried all through this writing, having the presence of God and being in great ecstasy to behold Him. May God touch your heart and may His Spirit move within you. May you be filled with the grace of God to surrender and let Him accomplish a great work within you.

    And I was filled on high with His miraculous light and He reached down and spoke within me. I was filled as never before and knew the presence of God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Note:  As I finished, the bells at All Saints Church rang at 9:00 A.M. As I began to experience the immense splendor, the bells of 8:00 rang. Words do not express anything that I saw or experienced or know from this ecstasy. This was the greatest and the first of three visions, which defined clearly to me our role in the Shepherds of Christ Movement. Jesus defines clearly the role of Fr. Carter in this great mission given to him by the Father.

For Fr. Carter from Jesus:

Jesus:  To him who has eyes to see, they will see - not with earthly vision, but with the eyes of faith, and to him who has ears to hear, he will hear with the fluttering of the Spirit moving within him.

    I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. I am the Almighty God. I say to the rocks to fall and they fall and to the grass, grow, and it grows, and to the sun, shine, and it shines. I give to you My love in these letters. Filled with My love, you will conquer this earth, not with weapons and powder or force, but with fires of My love. The fire will wipe out the hatred in the cold hearts and the earth will be covered with My celestial light. The earth will rock and I will appear in the heavens adorned in power and glory and the contrite hearts will be saved. I came to separate the sheep from the goats, the light from the darkness. I come and no one pays Me heed.

    To you, My beloved son, Father Carter, I have sent you on a mission to spread this fire that will cover this earth. The hearts of men will turn from their sick and desolate ways to hearts gentle as a little lamb.

    There will be one flock and one Shepherd and My staff will rule over all. Hearts consecrated to Our Hearts will lead the light across the earth. This light will be a light of intense brightness, brighter and hotter than any light from a flame. It will be the fire of God's love. The Spirit will move in the hearts of all consecrated to My Heart, and you will know how fire truly spreads, for the love of God is a fire. It is vibrant. It is encompassing. It is smoldering, burning deep within and speedily spreading on the outside. No fire on this earth can ever describe the burning embers that burn from the Sacred Heart of Jesus. No fire burns like the fires coming from My Heart and hearts filled with the love from the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

    I have written your name, Fr. Carter, in My Heart, never ever to be blotted out and this earth will be renewed with the fire of God's love through you. You are My beloved priest-son, forever, according to the order of Melchizedek. Most holy and most sacred are your hands that consecrate the Host and write My precious newsletter for My beloved priest-sons. You are never unguarded. You are held within the deepest chamber of My Heart, and you will spread My love to the priest-sons of this earth.

    I am Jesus. You will spread My love to all souls on this earth. I love you with the tenderest burning love. I am Jesus, your beloved Savior.

He Remains with Us, Truly Present

R. God sees us as one family, His beloved creatures. He loves us each with the deepest personal love. He sees us united. It is our love for one another that pleases Him. There is not division in God. He loves each of us and knows our uniqueness. He loves all of us as His creatures. We are all members of His holy family. He wants all His children to inherit the Kingdom of God.

I find refuge by dwelling within His most precious Heart. I feel the inner glow, the heat. I feel the calm beating of His heart. It is there I am wrapped in His burning love. It is there I am united deeply to my most beloved Father. It is there I am joined with the permeating, moving action of the Holy Spirit.

It is my refuge, in this dark and troubled world. It is my heaven on earth, to be joined in love with all He has created, to have perfect peace and know God's chamber of peace and love.

I see the darkness, the vileness of this world, and I go to His Heart. I see, with rose-colored glasses. I see as He wants us to see with eyes of love. I want to love and see as He sees. It is in this deepest chamber of His Heart that I have found the Kingdom of God on earth, for He has said, the Kingdom of God is within you. The Kingdom of God, our little heaven on earth, is in dwelling deeply within Their Hearts. In His Heart is love and in His Heart is peace, in His Heart we are all one as He intends us to be. "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." (Matt: 12:48-50)1 We draw in our beloved sisters and brothers by the love that radiates from our eyes, our gentle touch, our loving concern.

Strip yourself of the attachments to this world. Find peace in the freedom of living according to His will, living *In Him, *in this magnificent Heart.

He came, He walked the earth, for love of us. He took on a human body. He gave His adorable Heart that we could live *In Him. He no longer walks this earth, He gives us Himself in the Holy Eucharist. He gives us a human *heart, pierced with a lance, crowned with thorns and holding the cross. The way to this fiery furnace, the way to life in Him, is through much suffering and pain. We identify with Him in all our actions, all our joys and sufferings, united to Him as we live our lives in Him. We walk the Passion, we feel the joys, the deep love in His Heart for His Mother, for all His beloved creatures. We carry out His life in our life.

I am Yours, my Lord. I love You with my whole heart, my whole soul, my whole being. I have found the Kingdom of God on this earth. I have found life in You. When I see the darkness in this troubled world, I go to the deepest, hottest chamber of Your Heart and I am bathed in your abundant love. I take with me my troubled brothers in my heart and I plead for their return to their God who is all worthy of all honor and love and adoration.

I am Yours, Lord, I consecrate my heart to You to live forever in this holy place. I want to die to all that is not of You, that I can be united in the deepest way to You, that my heart will know Your love, that as I live in this world I can truly say, "It is no longer I who live, but He who lives in me."

O, Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, I give You my all. I come to You surrounded by the pure and loving heart of Your Mother. I know You won't refuse me in my wretchedness when I come to You in the heart of Your beloved Mother.

The Holy Spirit permeates the very depth of my soul and I enter into the deepest chamber of His fiery Heart. It is there I feel so little, as a little child, and I unite to my most beloved Father. I feel in Your fiery heart the presence of God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, in the deepest, whitest chamber, in the center of the deepest love. I unite with God and I know my dwelling in You is truly a little heaven on earth.

The Kingdom of God is at hand. There will be an era of peace. We will all be one in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. We will be one happy family where there will only be love: love of God and love of one another.

And the city shone with the brightest light for within their hearts they knew the love of God and it radiated into the world. There was no longer darkness that covered the earth, but light, radiating from those dwelling within the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. And the star shone over His bed at Bethlehem. He is truly the light of the world and the light shone in the darkness and all who came to this light lived in the light and lived according to the light.

It is in this that we trust, that in all the darkness of the world that the light will shine when men are dwelling in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

And, He says: I am the way, the truth and the life. He who abides in me will have the light of life. He came, He was born a baby, He died on a cross, but as He hung on that cross on Calvary, He was the light that shone as the brightest light to the world, withered, beaten and bloodied. He was the brightest light in the darkened sky. It was through His death all men were promised a chance for real life, for eternal salvation.

And the light came forth from the tomb in power and glory, adorned in bright, glistening light. He stood before them with His glorified wounds: His pierced Heart of endless love and He gave them the newness of life-life in Him. The light shone in the darkness. He gave them a sharing in His Divine Life through Baptism and ascended into heaven to prepare a place for us, but He remained with us, truly present, in His Eucharistic Heart. He feeds us with His own Body and Blood. He gives us the Bread of Life. He is the Savior of the World and we live in newness of life because God first loved us!

Message from Jesus to Father Edward Carter, S.J.

    This is your special calling from Jesus to pray for the Church and the world. The power is in Him. He is truly present in the Eucharist. He ascended into heaven, but He remains with us in greatest love. He calls out to us, "I am alive, I am alive, I am alive. Come to me and I will give you rest. Can you not watch one hour with Me?

    "I am Jesus. I call you My beloved ones to be Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus. I love you, I love you, I love you."

Many Graces Will Be Granted

Jesus: My beloved Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus, I have called you to a special apostleship, My beloved ones. I am crying out to you from My Eucharistic Heart to pray as you have never prayed before. The power, My dear chosen ones, is in the Eucharist. Your world is in a very serious state. The Church, the pope, the bishops, the priests, the Sisters and Brothers are all in need of tremendous prayer power.
    You have been called to the quiet of the tabernacle to take your prayer petitions to My Eucharistic Heart. The renewal of the Church and the world is at hand. From the prayers you pray here, many graces will be granted.
    I am calling all in this Movement as well as all others in the Shepherds of Christ Movement to consecrate their hearts to My Heart and the heart of My Mother. All through the day I am calling you, priests, sisters and brothers in the religious life, laity, including children, to give your hearts to Me and to My beloved Mother. As you dwell in Our Hearts you will be one with each other.
    Come to Me with your petitions. I am truly present in the tabernacle, no less present than the day I walked the earth. I wait for you to come and to pray for your Church and your world. Many graces will be given there for the priesthood and those in the religious life. I have chosen each priest and sister and brother in the religious life to help spread My love to this world. The highest calling is to be called to the priesthood. The calling I give to My beloved priests, sisters and brothers is a special spousalship to Me. How My Heart is wounded by the priests and sisters and brothers in the religious life who have turned worldly. I, the almighty God, call them to such a deep intimate love affair with Me and they go to the world for their love.
    When the religious are fixed in My Heart many will be fed by My burning love.
    The world is in a state of urgency. The Church in part has become worldly. The medicine for the hurting world is My burning love. Nothing, nothing will feed the starved soul but the love of God. I am calling you to pray for My holy priests, to pray that all priests come to a state of deep holiness.
    I have called you as part of the Shepherds of Christ Movement to join in prayer before Me and to beg for graces for your Church and your world.
    The renewal of My Church and My world will be helped greatly through many giving themselves to this movement.
    At Fatima My Mother said that, until a sufficient number of faithful are consecrating their hearts to My Heart and the heart of My Mother, there will not be peace in this world.
    In the Shepherds of Christ Movement including the Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus Movement, I am reaching the priests, sisters and brothers in the religious life, laity, including the children - with this Consecration.
    As you dwell in Our hearts you are one with us. As you give yourselves to our Hearts, you are one in our Hearts. These movements will prosper for all are joined in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. You will proceed ahead in one heart and one mind. You will be more joined as a true family, brothers and sisters, living according to the will of your heavenly Father and dwelling in the heart of your heavenly Mother.
    Oh, beloved children, in these movements you have been hand-picked and chosen for this mission by Me. I am giving to you such graces to unite more and more deeply to My Heart. You will be one with each other and one with God. As you dwell in My Mother's heart and My Heart, you unite with the Father in the Holy Spirit.
    You are especially chosen, my apostles, to help carry My love to this world. As you join in this oneness with Me, I live in you and you in Me and I am alive in this world in a special way through this union.
    I have called you to this apostleship, I am guarding your every breath, I am giving you abundant graces to help carry out the plan of the Father. "Come to me, all you who labour and are overburdened, and I will give you rest." (Matt. 11:28)1
    Bring the cares of the Church and the world to Me. I am waiting to give you all you need. I am Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God. I live this day in the world. I am truly present in the Blessed Sacrament. Come to Me and I will live in you.
    I love you, I love you, I love you. I am your beloved Savior, Jesus.

 

  

From April 5, 2007

                    Today is a special feast

                for us.

 

Luke 22: 14-20

When the time came he took his place at table, and the apostles with him. And he said to them, ‘I have ardently longed to eat this Passover with you before I suffer; because, I tell you, I shall not eat it until it is fulfilled in the kingdom of God.’
    Then, taking a cup, he gave thanks and said, ‘Take this and share it among you, because from now on, I tell you, I shall never again drink wine until the kingdom of God comes.’

Then he took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to them, saying, ‘This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.’ He did the same with the cup after supper, and said, ‘This cup is the new covenant in my blood poured out for you.

Stations of the Cross


  

1. Jesus Is Condemned to Death

Jesus: My dear child, with angry hearts and hatred on their faces, they poked at Me and condemned Me to death. I stood so silent, My hands tied, in perfect peace, because I knew the Father's love. I knew the Father's Will. You too will stand your trials in perfect peace, the more you realize the immense love the Father, Son and Holy Spirit have for you. Pray to the Spirit to transform you more and more into My image and, through this transformation, you will be led ever closer to the Father. Oh, how I love you!

     


  

2. They Give Jesus the Cross

Jesus: They gave Me a heavy cross, laden with the sins of the world. They placed it on My shoulder. It was so heavy I felt as if My shoulder would break. I ask you to carry little crosses, to experience little pains. I could not remove this cross from My shoulder. The weight was unbearable. It is through My suffering and death that you receive new life. It is through your sufferings this day that you will grow in your life with Me. Oh, child, I loved you so much that I took up the cross of salvation. I love you. Please realize that I am talking to you here. To My death I loved you. Oh, how I love you!

     


  

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!

    


  

11. They Nail Him to the Cross

Messenger: See Mary as she holds the little Baby Jesus. See her as she washes His tender hands and feet. See her now as she watches as they pound into those same hands and feet the gigantic nails that fix Jesus to the cross.

Mary:
Oh, my dear ones, my heart was torn in my chest as they nailed His hands and feet to the cross. I ask you this day to walk the Passion with me and see through my eyes the love He has for you. He truly was nailed to the cross.

Jesus:
They pounded the nails into My first hand, then they stretched My body and nailed My other hand. The blood poured from these wounds that went totally through My hands. My pain was so immense, but then they nailed My feet! You do not know what pain I suffered, My child. My children, My children, for each one of you I suffered this pain. Oh, how I loved you!

  


  

12. Jesus Dies on the Cross

(Silence.)

Messenger:
He hung for three agonizing hours on the cross against the darkened sky. His greatest agonies were not the agonies of His body, but those of His Heart for the great love He has for each and every soul.

Jesus:
I gave Myself to you, My dear ones. I gave My all. I hung with My arms spread in total surrender. My head was punctured; My hands and feet were nailed to the cross. I gave Myself to you. I give Myself to you this day in the Eucharist. I give Myself to you. I, God, give you Myself! What more do you want?

Song:
Oh, burning Heart, oh, Love divine, etc.

Messenger:
They pierced His Heart with a lance and what flowed forth was blood and water, the sacramental life of the Church, water for Baptism and blood for the Eucharist. His life, death and resurrection live on in the Church this day.

  


  

13. Jesus Is Taken Down from the Cross and
Placed in the Arms of His Mother

Messenger: His totally lifeless body was placed in the arms of His most loving Mother. As she had held the little baby body in her arms, she now received His bloodied, bruised body in her arms. This is how He obeyed the Father's Will. Jesus gave His life for us. The Father gave His only Son because He loves us so much. Mary, His Mother, our Mother and the Mother of the Church, is forever by His side. See Jesus in the arms of His loving Mother under the cross. This is love.

Mary:
I held His lifeless body in my arms. See through my eyes the love He has for you this day. He gives Himself to you today in the Eucharist. He loves you so much!

    


  

14. Jesus Is Locked in the Tomb

Messenger: His enemies rolled the stone up to the tomb and were pleased to have buried Jesus. Mary, outside the tomb, wept bitterly. The cold reality that He was dead! But death has no power over Jesus for on the third day He rose, triumphant, from the tomb! We are partakers in His divine life. Death has no power over Jesus. He is with us this day. He comes to bring us life to the full. He loves us so much!

May they all be one,
just as, Father, you are in me
   and I am in you,
so that they also may be in us,
so that the world may believe
it was you who sent me.
I have given them the glory
   you gave to me,

Exodus 12: 1-8, 11-14

Yahweh said to Moses and Aaron in Egypt, 'This month must be the first of all the months for you, the first month of your year. Speak to the whole community of Israel and say, "On the tenth day of this month each man must take an animal from the flock for his family: one animal for each household. If the household is too small for the animal, he must join with his neighbour nearest to his house, depending on the number of persons. When you choose the animal, you will take into account what each can eat. It must be an animal without blemish, a male one year old; you may choose it either from the sheep or from the goats. You must keep it till the fourteenth day of the month when the whole assembly of the community of Israel will slaughter it at twilight. Some of the blood must then be taken and put on both door-posts and the lintel of the houses where it is eaten. That night, the flesh must be eaten, roasted over the fire; it must be eaten with unleavened bread and bitter herbs.

This is how you must eat it: with a belt round your waist, your sandals on your feet and your staff in your hand. You must eat it hurriedly: it is a Passover in Yahweh's honour. That night, I shall go through Egypt and strike down all the first-born in Egypt, man and beast alike, and shall execute justice on all the gods of Egypt, I, Yahweh! The blood will be a sign for you on the houses where you are. When I see the blood I shall pass over you, and you will escape the destructive plague when I strike Egypt. This day must be commemorated by you, and you must keep it as a feast in Yahweh's honour. You must keep it as a feast-day for all generations; this is a decree for all time.

 

1 Corinthians 11: 23-26

    For the tradition I received from the Lord and also handed on to you is that on the night he was betrayed, the Lord Jesus took some bread, and after he had given thanks, he broke it, and he said, ‘This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me.’ And in the same way, with the cup after supper, saying, ‘This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Whenever you drink it, do this as a memorial of me.’ Whenever you eat this bread, then, and drink this cup, you are proclaiming the Lord’s death until he comes.

 

John 13: 1-15

Before the festival of the Passover, Jesus, knowing that his hour had come to pass from this world to the Father, having loved those who were his in the world, loved them to the end. 

They were at supper, and the devil had already put it into the mind of Judas Iscariot son of Simon, to betray him. Jesus knew that the Father had put everything into his hands, and that he had come from God and was returning to God, and he got up from table, removed his outer garments and, taking a towel, wrapped it round his waist; he then poured water into a basin and began to wash the disciples’ feet and to wipe them with the towel he was wearing. 

    He came to Simon Peter, who said to him, ‘Lord, are you going to wash my feet?’ Jesus answered, ‘At the moment you do not know what I am doing, but later you will understand.’ ‘Never!’ said Peter. ‘You shall never wash my feet.’ Jesus replied, ‘If I do not wash you, you can have no share with me.’ Simon Peter said, ‘Well then, Lord, not only my feet, but my hands and my head as well!’ Jesus said, ‘No one who has had a bath needs washing, such a person is clean all over. You too are clean, though not all of you are.’ He knew who was going to betray him, and that was why he said, ‘though not all of you are’. 

    When he had washed their feet and put on his outer garments again he went back to the table. ‘Do you understand’, he said, ‘what I have done to you? 'You call me Master and Lord, and rightly; so I am. If I, then, the Lord and Master, have washed your feet, you must wash each other's feet. I have given you an example so that you may copy what I have done to you.

A Prayer for Grace and Holiness today
A prayer to work in love and holiness
 

John 16: 23

"If you ask the Father anything in my name,
    He will give it to you"

R. God wants our unity – we ask for this
    unity – that the Spirit of God fill
    us and help us to be holy –
    that we do not hold onto any of the deadly
    sins that block us from this unity –
    that the Holy Spirit can work in our souls,
    so we can be His instruments of love
    and peace and joy among our brothers.

We pray this heavenly Father in the name of
    Jesus who said ask in my name and
    it will be given to you.

    Let us experience the joy of unity and love
    on a supernatural level and know You
    our beloved God – more and more supernaturally.
    We want our hearts to be sanctified in
    our love and work so we are holy and
    pleasing to You God.

Come to us Lord and possess our soul.

We want to walk as God intends us
    to walk today in the plan of God,
    in the work He has called us to do today.

We know that we must cooperate with the grace
    You are giving us – now and today to
    bring unity and peace and love to this
    day as we serve to do the work – You are
    calling us in our vocation to do.

Dear Heavenly Father, hear our prayer,
    in the name of Jesus, we pray,
    we ask, heavenly Father for these
    graces necessary this day to
    bring peace, love and joy to
    our relationships and work – as You
    work in us.

    We seek perfection in our souls to be holy
    souls likened to You – in work
    and in play – to be holy in prayer –
    we invite You Holy Spirit to be
    the Guest of our soul.

We seek order in our lives, not disorder.

We beg for the virtues of faith, hope, love,
    prudence, temperance, fortitude, justice,
    and humility. We seek to be obedient
    to the will of God and live obedient to
    the will of God in love.

Come Holy Spirit Come into our hearts. Transform
    us from fear to fearlessness to serve
    You as You desire in our lives.

Help our actions to be for the glory and honor
    of God with the goal of these actions
    to one day be in heaven with Thee,
    our beloved God.

Heal our hearts and our bodies – Help
    us to have health of body now in
    this work you call us to do.

Instill in us a desire to want to only
    do the will of the heavenly Father
    and to walk in holiness and love.

We pray all these prayers heavenly Father,
    united to Jesus, in His name for
    grace and holiness today and always.

Help us to live by right reasoning in
    our lives – to have the truth
    in our every thought and to live
    in order as You operate in us
    in unity and love.

Come to me Lord and possess my soul.

We seek order in our lives – Your order
    to love in us, to help us to act as
    You desire, to have the thoughts
    that are in right reasoning and in
    Your order, Lord.

Give us the grace to use our faculties
    to love and serve You and do
    Your work.

Give us faith and right reasoning.

Help us to love and be just in our actions.

Help us to seek Your Divine Will and to
    perform those actions, which are actions
    pleasing to You in everything.

Come to us Lord and purify our consciences,
    our souls.

Help us to hope and love in Thee.

We seek heavenly vision – to see
    things through the eyes of
    the heavenly Father and to be
    perfected more and more in doing
    God's will in our lives.

We pray for the gifts and fruits of the Holy Spirit.

We pray for this purity in our souls –
    to live virtuously, to be perfected
    more and more and filled with the
    gifts of the Holy Spirit –
    Wisdom, Understanding, Counsel,
    Fortitude, Knowledge, Piety
    and Fear of the Lord 

    and to have the fruits of the Holy Spirit –
    charity, joy, peace, patience,
    benignity (kindness), goodness,
    long-suffering, mildness,
    faith, modesty, continency,
    and chastity.

We do not want the enemies to
    invade our thoughts, our
    actions, our lives –

We pray to give up ugly bad habits of the
    deadly sins –
    pride, greed, envy, wrath, lust, gluttony, and sloth

We know on this journey we will
    experience sufferings and joys
    and we accept the struggles
    in life and ask You to help us,
    strengthen us in our lives to
    suffer and rejoice as You
    desire us to do in our lives.

We want to be a reflection of Your
    heavenly love – to be full of light –
    Your light in us. To operate in
    light and not darkness – IN You,
    our beloved God.

We want to follow in the footsteps
    of Jesus in giving love and
    light and unity to those
    we contact in our lives –

         

Prayer for Union with Jesus

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.

    I am Yours to possess. I am Yours to use. I want to be selfless and only exist in You. Help me to spoon out all that is me and be an empty vessel ready to be filled by You. Help me to die to myself and live only for You. Use me as You will. Let me never draw my attention back to myself. I only want to operate as You do, dwelling within me.

    I am Yours, Lord. I want to have my life in You. I want to do the will of the Father. Give me the strength to put aside the world and let You operate my very being. Help me to act as You desire. Strengthen me against the distractions of the devil to take me from Your work.

    When I worry, I have taken my focus off of You and placed it on myself. Help me not to give in to the promptings of others to change what in my heart You are making very clear to me. I worship You, I adore You and I love You. Come and dwell in me now.

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
