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.  

 

April 7, 2021 

R. God is a God of miracles.

Jesus, we come to Thee and ask for Your aid.
Oh God make haste to help me.
Amen.

In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Jesus: You asked and you received, I am with you in your trials, be not afraid.

Pray for faith.
Pray for the grace you need most.
Turn to Me in this trial,
I will never abandon you.
Be not afraid.
Trust in Me.
Let go surrender to Me.

Amen.
Amen

I will never abandon you.
Never, turn to Me.
Alleluia. Amen.

Stay rooted in Me.
Amen.

Though the mountains fall, I will not abandon you. 

Romans 8: 31

        If God is for us, who can be against us?
  
 

Jesus: Only one thing is important - eternal salvation
Sin takes you from eternal salvation.
Be believing.

Do not be tempted to doubt My constant presence with you.
Be not afraid, My child, trust in My Sacred Heart.
BE NOT UNBELIEVING, but believing, Always, always putting your faith and trust in Me.
I am your rock and your shield.
Let go to Me.
Amen.

  

 March 26, 2021

Jesus: I am your God.
I am with you now.
I am a God of miracles. 

I love you so much.
Do not fear, obey God.
Give yourself to Me.
Trust in Me now and always.
I am a God of miracles.
Let go and trust in My Sacred Heart.
This is how you grow in holiness is to let go to Me, trust in Me.
I have the Plan.
The person whose goal is their own plan, to control is missing the surrender to God to live in obedience to God’s will. 

A person manipulating, controlling, making jealousy the reason they act, is not living in happiness, their god is themselves.
An empty well gives no water.
Love is not love until it gives. 

Definition of Love

Love is the gift of self to promote the true good of those loved. He states the reception of love is the receiving of the gift of the other, so my good will be promoted. 
 

Jesus: I am love.
A person basing their actions on envy and jealousy has made Satan their guide.
The more Satan acts in a person the deeper their habits become.

Like water flowing in a groove, the habit becomes the motive for their secret adverse actions.
Sin is forgiven when one asks to be forgiven with a firm purpose of amendment.
Mortal sin in confession.
The person envious and jealous hides the truth even to themselves most of the time.

One action leads to a chain of actions.
My Father has a Plan –


Operating to manipulate and control for selfish power causes a dark result.
Like ripples on a pond - a person can seek power - selfish power – and the dark ripples are adverse to the light, harmony and love.
Selfish, self-enclosure for envy and jealousy makes one’s heart clogged and empty of love.
You were created to love –
So how can anyone lying to themselves about the truth of this darkness, change what they refuse to admit.

Suffering is suffering.
Life has suffering. Hurting others for jealousy, anger, envy is wrong and hurts many others - while trying to block My Father’s Plan.

Why do anything if it’s not God’s will.
Mary is the perfect handmaid of the Lord.
Mary is Mother of love.
The intention of My Movement is to spread the love of Our Two Hearts.
This Movement is about the pure and perfect love of Our Two Hearts.
My Mother is the New Eve.
I am Jesus, the Son of God.
The person who loves me has a Spousal Union with Me.
I am the Divine Bridegroom.

The ripples Jesus speaks of works when one gives love.
Selfishness spreads darkness.
Happiness is found in admitting sins and asking for forgiveness with a firm purpose of amendment.
Happiness is living united to God.
To be one with God, one seeks love and service of what God wants.
Happiness is found in God,
not selfish self-enclosure.
Jesus went out.
Love goes out.
Love is truthful to others and self.
Love cares for justice in relationships, building a bridge.
Love is the opposite of selfishness.
Humility, the opposite of pride.

Mary shows her humility.

I am God, to grow in holiness one seeks to grow in virtue.
The deadly sins bring unhappiness, division and injustice.
Justice and peace kiss.

Judas betrayed me.
Secrets behind My back.
Betrayal of friends brings great unhappiness.

 

Mary on Feast of Annunciation

Jesus: I have blessed you.

Be grateful for My gifts.

 

March 25, 2021

 

Mary: I stood beneath the cross of my Son.

I obeyed the Father’s will.

R. Mary is the perfect handmaid of the Lord.

Mary loved the Father’s will.

Mary always did the Father’s will. 

Jesus: Only in holiness can you resist temptation.
In giving into the deadly sins
You open a door to Satan.
The devil wants you to think you don’t have to prepare to resist temptation by living virtuously.

Humility is a virtue.
Pride opens the door to Satan. 

Everyone has a free will.


Birth of John the Baptist - June 24, 2012

HOMILY: ... Even 2500 years ago, people knew the importance of preparing for the future. It’s still just as true today. If we do not learn this lesson when life is good, we’ll learn the hard way when it’s too late. This goes for education, investing, health and all kinds of important areas of life. John the Baptist’s role in life was to insist on the need to prepare. He called people to repent and prepare for the coming of God’s kingdom. His message is as important today as it ever was. There is a kind of new age theology that follows the attitude of the Grasshopper. It says don’t worry. Everybody is going to be in heaven in the end (except for someone like Hitler). Although God wants all people to be saved, there are abundant passages in the Scriptures that warn us that we cannot take salvation for granted. Jesus, who came to save us and who revealed to us so clearly the love of God, warned us: “The door to heaven is narrow. Work hard to get in, because many will try to enter and will not be able.” (Luke 13:23) Jesus’ message at the beginning of his ministry was the same message as John the Baptist: “repent and believe in the gospel.” The word “believe” means more than saying, “I believe.” It means putting our belief into action. Statistics keep coming out that fewer and fewer people are coming to Church, which is an indication that more and more people believe that worship of God is not all that important. I think it’s the entitlement mentality. We feel entitled to be happy (even eternally), no matter what we do or how we live. That’s not what the Scriptures tell us. I think the most important lesson we can learn from this feast of John the Baptist is to prepare. The fact you are here today is one good sign that you understand we need to prepare to meet our God. Amen.

   

R. 3:00 Friday. Nobody can love us like God.
How have we given ourselves in love to Jesus and given His love to others.

Love means we live to obey God and be likened to Jesus.
Jesus shows us His Heart.
Integrity - the Father watches to see how we do things - the way God wants. 

Hiding how we secretly cut corners if no one is watching-we think – or we can get away with it - is wrong.

God is always watching to see if we are doing it the way He wants.
We don’t fool God.

He watches how we do everything.
If we don’t do something small He wants, why should He give us more to do.
Integrity - God is watching.

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
