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. We pray for the upcoming election.

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.

Prayer for Sick and Caregivers at Home

R. Dear God,
I pray Heavenly Father with all my heart,
in the Name of Jesus, united to the Holy
Sacrifice of the Mass, in the Holy Spirit,
with all the angels and saints and souls
in purgatory, through the powerful
intercession of our Lady of Clearwater
to come to my aid now.

My loved one is very sick and he (she)
needs your help, God.
Outpour Your grace for me in this time
of need to have patience and wisdom to
deal with this now.

I give this sickness up to You, my God.
Please help me in dealing with this and
helping them in doing the right thing
and dealing with this.

I surrender this problem to You, my
Divine God.

Please send Your angels to help me.
Spread us all with the Precious Blood of
Jesus, cast the devil into the fires of hell,
dear Holy Spirit come to my aid.

I consecrate my home, ourselves to the
Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate
Heart of Mary, Thank You.
Most Sacred Heart of Jesus I place my
trust in Thee.
Child Jesus of Good Health, help us.
St. Joseph, Patron of a Holy Death
come to our aid.
Amen.

 

April 15, 2024


R. God is all powerful, without a beginning,
without an end, I implore You my Divine
God to come to my aid now.

The devil works in disorder and fear. I walk
steadfastly in Thee.

How firm are these ancient rocks and yet
God tells us if we have faith, we can move a
mountain.
All you angels and saints intercede to God
for this cause now.

Answer my prayer my God, I adore and
worship and praise You, now. Amen, Amen,
Amen help me now, I put my trust in Thee
most Sacred Heart of Jesus, through the
powerful intercession of Mary, my Mother,
God I love You.

R. Dear God,
I need You, please God hear my prayers.
Please come to me in the Holy Eucharist,

You are truly present in the Eucharist,
Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity.

God gives us Himself.

Jesus is love.
Sing: I Am the Bread of Life

Jesus told me for 6 weeks before I
received these messages, 33 years ago
“Feed the Hungry”
“Feed the Hungry”
“Feed the Hungry”.

Jesus: Give to others -
these messages to all.

Sorrowful Mysteries

The Agony in the Garden

1. Mark 14: 32-44

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

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

2. From Tell My People by Fr. Edward J. Carter, S.J.

The Cross Leads to Life (excerpt)

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!

3. “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.

4. 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.

5. Surrender to the Heart of Jesus (excerpt)

Reflection: ...

And yet, this is what we must do to achieve our ongoing
sanctification. Why should we be afraid to surrender? As
Jesus tells us above, who would you rather depend on—a
weak, finite self, or the loving and omnipotent God?
 

6. St. Paul tells us:
So I shall be very happy to make my weaknesses my special
boast so that the power of Christ may stay over me, and
that is why I am content with my weaknesses, and with
insults, hardships, persecutions, and the agonies I go
through for Christ’s sake. For it is when I am weak that
I am strong.    (2 Corinthians 12:9-10).


7. Prayer: Jesus, in and through You, and guided by the
Holy Spirit, we ask Your Father for an increase in trust.
We ask for the grace to more and more surrender to Your
Heart. We ask our Mother Mary to assist us in this
request.


8. 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.

-God's Blue Book, January 17, 1994

9. Jesus taught us surrender.

10. Jesus: I am the way, the truth and the life.

 

The Scourging at the Pillar

1. Matthew 27: 24-26

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

2. From Tell My People by Fr. Edward J. Carter, S.J.

Jesus Asks for Our Love

Jesus: “My beloved companion, tell My people how I long
for them to say that they love Me! When they do this, it
gives Me great joy. When they tell Me they love Me, I take
them close to My Heart. I give them the desire to love Me
more and more. I clothe them with fresh graces, increasing
their capacity to love God and neighbor. Tell My people to
express their love for Me often! I am Lord and Master.
Please do as I request!”

3. Reflection: What a gracious invitation Jesus extends to
us! He tells us how much He wants our expressions of love
for Him. Perhaps a person has to admit that his or her
spouse, or children, or friends, receive expressions of love
from him or her more often than does Jesus. This should
not be! Jesus has first command on our love. To love Jesus,
to tell Him we love Him—this is our privilege and our
duty.

4. Prayer: Jesus, give me the desire to often tell You how
much I love You!

5. Jesus was bound and whipped for our sins.
6. Jesus loves us so much.
7. Jesus stood in a puddle of His own blood.
8. Jesus: I love My precious souls.
9. Jesus: Amen, Amen I say to you, please
    live your vocation, your Father has a Plan
    for your lives.
10. Jesus: I love you, so much.

Sing: God’s Love

 

The Crowning with Thorns

1. Matthew 27: 27-31

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

2. Sing: Crown Him with Many Crowns
3. They pounded a crown of piercing
    thorns into Jesus’ head.
4. Jesus had a crown of holes in His head.

5. Sing: Why do We Hurt the Ones we Love

6. Sing: In My Heart

7. From Tell My People by Fr. Edward J. Carter, S.J.

Come to My Heart

Jesus: “My beloved companion, how I love to hold you
against My Heart! Each day, as you dwell in Mary’s Heart,
she places you against My Heart, and within My Heart. I
have given you a great desire to allow your mother to do
this.

8. Jesus: As you dwell within My Heart, I tell you how
much I love you! I give you a great desire to love God and
neighbor. I increase your trust in Me—something so
necessary for your growth in Me. Within My Heart I make
you feel so loved, so secure, so strengthened, so much
at peace!

9. Jesus: “Tell My people I wish them to come to My Heart
each day, in union with Mary, in order to experience similar
riches! Oh, how I love for My people to come to My Heart!
How I desire to tell them how much I love them! How
much I desire to ask for their return of love! I am Lord
and Master. I give this message out of My great love for
My people, and I request that they listen to My words.”

10. Reflection: How much Jesus loves us! He shows us His
Heart as symbol of this love. He asks us each day, united
with Mary our Mother, to come to His Heart. There He
inflames our hearts with love for God and neighbor. There
He gives us the conviction that we can do whatever He
asks us to do—and He gives us the desire to act on this
conviction.

 

The Carrying of the Cross

1. Mark 15: 15-23

So Pilate, anxious to placate the crowd, released Barabbas for them and, after having Jesus scourged, he handed him over to be crucified. The soldiers led him away to the inner part of the palace, that is, the Praetorium, and called the whole cohort together. They dressed him up in purple, twisted some thorns into a crown and put it on him. And they began saluting him, 'Hail, king of the Jews!' They struck his head with a reed and spat on him; and they went down on their knees to do him homage. And when they had finished making fun of him, they took off the purple and dressed him in his own clothes. They led him out to crucify him.

They enlisted a passer-by, Simon of Cyrene, father of Alexander and Rufus, who was coming in from the country, to carry his cross. They brought Jesus to the place called Golgotha, which means the place of the skull. They offered him wine mixed with myrrh, but he refused it.

2. Prayer: Heavenly Father, we ask for the grace to realize
more and more the great riches contained in the Heart of
Jesus. Give us the desire to come to Jesus’ Heart each day
to draw forth from these riches! We make this petition in
union with Jesus and Mary and in the Holy Spirit.

3. Sing: A Song from Jesus

4. From Tell My People by Fr. Edward J. Carter, S.J.

I Have Died for All - You Must Love All

Jesus: “My beloved companion, tell My people that all in
the human race have been marked with My Precious
Blood! I died a brutal death for all! Since all have been
touched and redeemed by My Precious Blood, no one can
be excluded from your love. My people must love each
and every one. They must look beyond the exterior of a
person and see the God-image of each. Each one has been
created in God’s image. Each one has been raised to a
new dignity through My redemption.

5. Jesus: “Tell My people to be conscious of all this in their
dealings with others—especially those marginalized little
ones who are so forgotten and abandoned by many. Each
person is precious to My Sacred Heart! Treat everyone
accordingly. Be kind, and patient, and, above all, loving
toward everyone. In union with Mary, come to My Heart
each day and I will give you the light and strength to love
your neighbor with a mighty love! I am Lord and Master!
Please heed My request. In My great love for you, I give
you this message!”

6. Reflection: If we are consistently conscious of this
teaching of Jesus, it becomes relatively easy to love
everyone—even those who, for various reasons, are not
particularly attractive to us in the external order of things.
Let’s remember that Jesus has told us that we must love
all— even our enemies: “You have learned how it was
said: You must love your neighbor and hate your enemy.
But I say this to you: Love your enemies and pray for those
who persecute you...” (Matthew 5:43-44).

7. Prayer: Jesus, we approach You in union with Mary. We
ask for the grace to grow in the awareness of how
precious each person is to You. We ask for the grace to
treat each one according to his or her priceless dignity!
Jesus, we ask You to take our petition to Your Father in
the Holy Spirit.

8. Jesus never gave up, He endured to the
    bitter end.

9. Jesus fell under the cross, three times.

10. Sing: I Am Your Sacred Heart

 

The Crucifixion

1. Luke 23: 32-47

Now they were also leading out two others, criminals, to be executed with him. When they reached the place called The Skull, there they crucified him and the two criminals, one on his right, the other on his left. Jesus said, 'Father, forgive them; they do not know what they are doing.' Then they cast lots to share out his clothing.

The people stayed there watching.  As for the leaders, they jeered at him with the words, 'He saved others, let him save himself if he is the Christ of God, the Chosen One.'  The soldiers mocked him too, coming up to him, offering him vinegar, and saying, 'If you are the king of the Jews, save yourself.'  Above him there was an inscription: 'This is the King of the Jews'.

One of the criminals hanging there abused him: 'Are you not the Christ? Save yourself and us as well.'  But the other spoke up and rebuked him.  'Have you no fear of God at all?' he said.  'You got the same sentence as he did, but in our case we deserved it: we are paying for what we did.  But this man has done nothing wrong.'  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.'

The veil of the Sanctuary was torn right down the middle. Jesus cried out in a loud voice saying, 'Father, into your hands I commit my spirit.' With these words he breathed his last. When the centurion saw what had taken place, he gave praise to God and said, 'Truly, this was an upright man.'
 

2. 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.
 

3. From Tell My People by Fr. Edward J. Carter, S.J.

 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!

4. “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.

5. “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.

6. “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.

7. “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!

8. “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.”

9. 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).

10. Prayer: Heavenly Father, we ask for the light and
strength to cope with suffering according to Your will.
Give us a great love for Christ crucified! Allow us to carry
our cross with an ever greater love for God and neighbor!
We make this petition in union with Jesus and Mary and
in the Holy Spirit.

        Age of the Two Hearts

Jesus:  "My beloved priest-companion, I have allowed you to experience in extraordinary fashion the riches contained in My Heart and My Mother's Heart. I desire that you tell all My people about these riches. I desire that My people consecrate themselves to My Sacred Heart and to Mary's Immaculate Heart. My people are living in the beginnings of the age of the Two Hearts.

    "After the time of the purification is completed, this new era of the Church and the world will become firmly established. This era will be characterized by the triumph of the Immaculate Heart and the reign of My Sacred Heart. All those who consecrate themselves to My Heart and to My Mother's Heart will help to establish this glorious new age. I am Lord and Master. Please listen to My urgent request. Within Our Hearts you will experience the love and security, the peace and the joy, which you all desire. I love My people with a tremendous love, and in My love I give them this message!"

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
