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!!!!

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.

Dear Mary: Happy Mother’s Day.

Mary: Dear children: I love you far
more than you know. I am your
spiritual Mother.

Souls are being lost tonight,
I appeared in Clearwater,
I am the Queen of Peace.

Monday is May 13, 2024.
It is 107 years since my first
apparition at Fatima.

There was a terrible war - you refuse
to listen to my messages and warnings.
You will suffer, your world is
disobedient to the commandments
of God and very willful and unloving.

I cried, asking you to listen to the messages
of my Son Jesus and you refused.

I am Our Lady of Clearwater.
 

Mary: You will not listen.

Conversion is necessary.
Obedience to God.

The messages given here are from
God the Father.

At the Transfiguration the Father spoke
...‘This is my Son, the Beloved; he enjoys
my favour. Listen to him.’   Matthew 17:5

 

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.

R. Thank You, dear God, for giving us,
Jesus, our Savior. We offer our sacrifice
to the Father, united to Jesus in the Mass
and we pray that our offering is pleasing
to You, Father beloved God, thank You
for life today I adore You. I love You
and I worship You, my God and my all.
 

Nobody could take the beauty from the
precious baby Jesus.
No matter how ugly anything is, God is
unchangeable, His love infinite, His
faithfulness forever for those who love
and serve Him, He is attentive to our needs.

He doesn't remove suffering, He doesn't
take a man's free will. Jesus spread His
arms on the cross and gave us His
precious gift of Himself, His saving Blood,
His Heart I saw just last Thursday.
I saw the face of Fr. Joe while watching
Mass, he was in a heart, his head coming
out, then he was closed in the heart and I
watched it beat and move for about 15 minutes.

Christ never said the price was too high
for a soul in sin.
No matter how big the sin, Christ never
said that sin was too big and demanded
too big of a price for Him.

Jesus gave and gave and gave until He
had nothing more to give. Jesus did not
hold back.

I pray for greater knowledge and under-
standing and wisdom from the Holy Spirit.
I pray for counsel from the Holy Spirit.

I pray to You, my God now, with all my
heart and soul. Wash me and spread Your
blood over me, Amen.

If a man teaches his children to not respect
and love his wife, their mother, how does
he build the Kingdom of the Heavenly
Father which says: husband love your wife.

God is love and heaven is for love like Jesus,
not generations of division that can be taught
and passed down in families. Men can live
seeking dominance for dominance sake, so if
a person is taught anger and dysfunction like
jealousy, pride, selfishness, division in
relationships it can be passed down to children.
A man was created in the image and likeness
of God.
Love gives.
Love gives for the good of the other.
Love is from God.
Love is like Jesus.
The ruler is God.

A person fighting with a righteous man, is
fighting a losing battle.
If he wins - he loses!!!!

God has put structure into things, to overturn
the structure, the order God has specified
there is then, disorder.

St. Augustine says "Peace is the tranquility of order."

Sing: Let There be Peace on Earth

How Mary appeared when I prayed on the 5th
 

R. God calls us to be a witness. God
calls us to put Him first.
We must die to our selfish-will to live
the Resurrected life.

God sends people in our lives to help
us. He does not abandon us in days
of trial and trouble.

Oh God, I love You, I want to do
Your will in love.

Jesus showed us that the victory was
won in the Resurrection, but Jesus was
willing to pay a precious price.

We are not here for winning for our
own self-promotion, we are here to
follow Jesus and live in the Father's
will in love.

We honor God in all we do, we praise
and love Him above all else. That is
winning for the Kingdom of God.

People will see our good works and
praise our Father in heaven.

God will not be out-done in generosity.
He wants our obedience and love.
We walk in the truth.

Jesus is the way, the truth and the life.
Life is in Him.
 


 

R. The Mass is such a gift,
the Church, the Word, the priest,
God’s love for the human-race, eternal
life.
God the Father has a Plan, we should
seek to know and live His way, the way
to freedom and love and peace is living
the will of God in love, depending on
Him for everything.
God we love and thank You.
Amen. Help us to see, strengthen us in
this battle against the evil one and his
temptations in our world and our lives.

When we are weak, we are strong in
God. Send us the grace we need most
to please You, always. Please forgive
our unloving ways. Amen.


My sheep hear my voice
I know them, and they follow me.
I give them eternal life, and they
shall never perish. 
John 10:27-28

R. By laying down His life for His flock,
Jesus has raised us up. His death has
brought us life, the sorrow of His
Passion has brought us joy, His being
made prisoner on the cross has given
us the freedom of the sons of God.

Jesus gave Himself for us until there
was no more to give. So we should
give ourselves to Him.
We are to be dedicated to Christ and
His cause as a Christian Fr. Carter says.

Morning Offering

    Dear Father,
    I offer up all I do all day united to Jesus
    in the Mass, in the Holy Spirit, through
    the powerful intercession of Mary, our
    spiritual Mother, with all the angels and
    saints, and the souls in purgatory, for
    the priest, the Church, and the world.

    We love You God so much.
    We thank You and adore You and
    petition You for our needs. Amen.
 

Life is a precious gift.

Life is a gift from God.
God has a Plan for our lives.

We were created by the Father in love.

God wants us to be with Him eternally
in heaven.

God so loved the world He sent His
only begotten Son.

Life is a precious gift.

Only in God is your soul at rest.

Father, Son and Holy Spirit profound unity
One God, three Persons.

Only in God is your soul at rest.

Satan hates unity and love.
He uses those giving him rule to tear
down and separate.

Joyful Mysteries

The Annunciation

1.
Luke 1: 26-38

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

    and rise in Him.
9. Our life is a journey.
10. Jesus came a baby and showed us the
    way.

 

The Visitation

1.
Luke 1: 39-45

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

and my spirit rejoices

because he has looked upon
    the humiliation of his servant.
Yes, from now onwards
    all generations will call me blessed,
for the Almighty
    has done great things for me.
Holy is his name,
and his faithful love extends age after age
    to those who fear him.
He has used the power of his arm,
he has routed the arrogant of heart.
He has pulled down princes
    from their thrones
        and raised high the lowly.
He has filled the starving with good things,
    sent the rich away empty.
He has come to the help
    of Israel his servant,
        mindful of his faithful love
—according to the promise
    he made to our ancestors—
of his mercy to Abraham
    and to his descendants for ever.

The Birth of Jesus

1.
Luke 2:1-7

Now it happened that at this time Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be made of the whole inhabited world. This census—the first—took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria, and everyone went to be registered, each to his own town. So Joseph set out from the town of Nazareth in Galilee for Judaea, to David’s town called Bethlehem, since he was of David’s House and line, in order to be registered together with Mary, his betrothed, who was with child. Now it happened that, while they were there, the time came for her to have her child, and she gave birth to a son, her first–born. She wrapped him in swaddling clothes and laid him in a manger because there was no room for them in the living–space.

The Presentation in the Temple

1.
Luke 2: 25-35

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

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

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

2. Simeon, the prophet met Mary and
    Joseph and Jesus.
3. Simeon told Mary and Jesus of
    sufferings to come.
4. A sword too will pierce your heart
    O Mary.

The Seven Sorrows

1. The Prophecy of Simeon

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

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

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

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

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

Amen

  

2. The Flight into Egypt

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

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

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

 

3. Jesus was Lost in the Temple

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

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

Mary’s message was hard to experience.

Mary‘s Message - from the Rosary of August 27, 1996

Mary:  I stood beneath the cross of my Son, and my Heart was in such pain for I saw Him before my eyes. I saw Him covered with blood. I saw Him die. My Heart, my children, my Heart to watch my Son, but my Heart, my Heart, how I suffered for my little children of the world that give in to this world and give up the love of my Son. O my little children of light, I give you this message. Carry this light into the darkness for your Mother Mary, for I stood beneath the cross and I cried. I cried for the little ones. I cried for the young ones, the ones that do not care and will lose their souls. How do I make you see for you will not listen to me? What can I do? I come. I appear. I beg. I plead. I give you these gifts from my Son, and you reject me. I do not deliver messages very often anymore for I have been ignored. The message is the same. You do not read the messages I have given to you. Please help me. Help the little children. I appear. I appear. I appear, and I am ignored. I stood beneath the cross, and I cried. I cried, and my Heart was in such anguish for my little children, for I am searching for them this day as I searched for the Child Jesus. Please, please help me. I cannot hold back the hand of my Son any longer. I am Mary, your Mother. I ask you to help my children. You are my children of light. end of Mary's Message
 

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

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

Oh, please help us deliver this message of Mary.

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

 

4. Mary and Jesus meet on the way to Calvary

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

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

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

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

 

5. Jesus Died on the Cross

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

Mary‘s Message - from the Rosary of August 27, 1996

Mary:  I stood beneath the cross of my Son, and my Heart was in such pain for I saw Him before my eyes. I saw Him covered with blood. I saw Him die. My Heart, my children, my Heart to watch my Son, but my Heart, my Heart, how I suffered for my little children of the world that give in to this world and give up the love of my Son. O my little children of light, I give you this message. Carry this light into the darkness for your Mother Mary, for I stood beneath the cross and I cried. I cried for the little ones. I cried for the young ones, the ones that do not care and will lose their souls. How do I make you see for you will not listen to me? What can I do? I come. I appear. I beg. I plead. I give you these gifts from my Son, and you reject me. I do not deliver messages very often anymore for I have been ignored. The message is the same. You do not read the messages I have given to you. Please help me. Help the little children. I appear. I appear. I appear, and I am ignored. I stood beneath the cross, and I cried. I cried, and my Heart was in such anguish for my little children, for I am searching for them this day as I searched for the Child Jesus. Please, please help me. I cannot hold back the hand of my Son any longer. I am Mary, your Mother. I ask you to help my children. You are my children of light. end of Mary's Message
 

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

Jesus died for us.

Song: A Song from Jesus

 

6. Jesus is taken down from the Cross

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

 

7. Jesus is Locked in the Tomb

R. Imagine the sorrow in Mary’s Heart. Jesus died. Jesus was locked in the tomb.

And Simeon said
"This child is destined for the fall and rising of many in Israel."

And a sword too will pierce your heart, oh Mary.

6. Mary suffered so much under the cross
    of Jesus.

7. Writing September 24, 2000

R. Mary stood beneath the cross of her Son and she was in such anguish, of this I write. 

She saw the anguish of her beloved Son. She watched, she heard Him sigh, breathe, she endured the time, knowing the time was near for His death. 

There was the intensity of waiting during the passion. Think of her anguish watching him as He hung on the cross.  

Mary knew things from the prophecy of Simeon. She knew of a deep sorrow to pierce her heart. 

Think of the anguish of her heart.  

Think of Mary holding the lifeless body of Jesus under the cross. Meditate on the sufferings she endured. 

Think of how she felt at the tomb where they laid her Son. 

Pray for light to know more fully the heart of Mary in these sufferings. 

Mary had such a deep connection in her heart to Jesus. They were so united.  

Death by crucifixion was used to kill criminals. They crucified Jesus, the Son of God. 
  


 

R. It is painful to see injustices in the world. 

We go through sufferings concerning injustices in the world. Mary cries out about the sins of her children. We identify with Jesus. He knew all the souls that would be lost despite His suffering. 

Be with Jesus in the garden of Gethsemane and see the sins of the world. Pray for knowledge to know more about the souls being lost. We must pray more fervently. Beg for mercy from God for our sins and the sins of the world. 

I could write forever of those moments of Mary as she stood beneath the cross or when she held the lifeless body of her Son in her lap. 

She shared in His Passion. She stood and watched Him suffer. She did not take a pill to numb her pain, nor was there any mechanism used to dull it. Every moment was with full intensity as she watched His mutilated body be drained more and more of fluid and blood until He took His last breath, giving His life for His precious souls. 

A person watching someone linger with cancer can identify with Mary as she watched her beloved Son die. 

We will die. 

We must keep our focus on the life hereafter. 

A woman of beauty, our Mother Mary, God allowed Mary to suffer. 

Luke 2:35 

and a sword will pierce your soul too—so that the secret thoughts of many may be laid bare.’

Written September 24, 2000

        Messenger:  I watched by his bed.

A book for those who help cancer patients, for their relatives and friends who need to cope with the suffering of losing a loved one. 

    It was a quiet day or so it seemed, the long months of watching John go "down hill" had come to an end.

    I did not know that the end was indeed so near, but the story had been written in the days that went before, but I really never read the message given in the days that led up to that final page.

    There were months of warnings, but I just lived every day coping with that day’s events and when the final page was about to be written, I felt shocked, empty and afraid.

    The days before were all telling the story, but like anyone in love with a family member, who wants to think that days of parting might be so soon? Oh, but they were so soon. As I look back now, I see I just didn’t recognize them.

    Every person can only do so much, but out of love those we love deeply and love us, sometimes, cover up their real conditions in an attempt to live life as usual.

    Cancer is a mighty menace. It attacks the weak and the strong. It acts like an aggressive machine growing and growing inside someone’s body and they may not notice the gradual sucking of their life from the other parts of the body until it almost leaves them dead.

    I was a little girl of five years old when the deadly disease ate away the cells in my mother’s body as it took over her body and she soon died.

    But I am not here to make you feel sorry for me or to tell you about anything new, but to write of the dying and rising of my dear friend, Fr. Carter.

    The signs were there, for in January he became very sick and even though he wanted to go to the Virgin Mary building to say a private Mass there, he could not go and the once held plane reservations were cancelled.

    He remained sick and on February 5, 2000, when we opened the Rosary Factory in Clearwater, Florida at Mary’s Image site, he did attend, but he didn’t feel good and he continued trying really hard to serve us as a ministry.

    Now, I don’t know, in September after they opened him up and told us what they did, how he ever did all he did, being so sick. It was September 22, 2000, when they operated on him and it was January 22, 2000, when we were supposed to go to Clearwater, Florida, exactly eight months later.

    Father Carter continued to keep a hectic schedule.

    Jesus told him to write the lengthy spirituality newsletter in which he summed up a great deal about the spiritual life. We could all study it for our entire life.

    As I write this, I don’t know if he will ever tape record this 20 page newsletter or the next newsletter.

    I do know this, the signs were there and Father worked really hard to continue doing all he did despite his sickness, weakness. His faith in the Movement never wavered. He had a burning desire to serve Jesus and help renew the priesthood, the Church and the world.

    Father worked and worked because he loved us all so much and loved the world and he didn’t complain, ever.

    His faith in this Movement and the messages of Jesus is shown in his life given to this.

    Father showed us the message of Jesus in his life. He lived in such union with Him. He offered Mass every day praying so fervently for souls and for all of us.

    I see the signs especially on the trips. Mary was adorned in gold on the building July 5, 2000, during the evening prayer service.

R. Father was in the motel and he didn’t feel good.

    After the Mass he had to sit and he didn’t think he would make it during the Mass because he was weak.

    I watched a lot of Masses that way, between his blood sugar levels and he seemed to just sigh sometimes to do ordinary motions, but he kept serving God and loving us all.

    I watched him look up to the Father and say, “through him, with him and in him”.

Through Him, with Him and in Him

R. He lived for the Mass. He offered it for the Movement and for all of us, the whole Church and the world, to help bring about the Reign of Jesus’ Sacred Heart.

    I can show you the picture taken on my birthday, August 8, 2000, he looked really bad and I worried about him so much I cried as I spoke to him, but in his calm, peaceful attitude, he assured me everything was okay as God wanted it and he was getting proper care.

R. Every day he looked weaker and he coughed whenever he talked and we all prayed more.

    He was determined to say Mass in China on the Feast of Mary’s birthday, September 8, 2000, and he paid a big price for it.

    For about 4 months he struggled with the cough and he walked slower and slower and he looked sicker every day, but he knew what God was telling him and about his mission.
 

9. We see how much Mary suffered.
10. From that point on we see of suffering
    to come for Mary.
 

 

The Finding in the Temple

1.
Luke 2: 41-52

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

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

2. Mary said, ‘Behold I am the handmaid
    of the Lord.

3. They found Jesus talking to the
    doctors in the temple.
4. Jesus told them He was about His
    Father's business.
5. Jesus lived a quiet life for 30 years.
6. Jesus lived the public life for three
    years.
7. God is light and in H1im is no darkness.
8. Sing: Ave, Ave, Ave Maria

9. Sing: I Am a God of Justice


10. 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

 

R. Come Holy Spirit, Come!
Enlighten the hearts of your people.
Outpour Your rich grace
upon us.
Let our eyes see.
We thirst after Thee
with the fire of Your love.
We ask for the gifts of wisdom,
knowledge, understanding.
Please infuse into our intellect.
Give us the gift of council
Holy Spirit.
Enlighten our minds.
Give us courage, please, to do
the will of the Father in love.
Sing: Come Holy Ghost

Jesus said on the Ascension "I am alive."
 

 

May 25, 1995

I Am Alive!

R. Prayer is a lifting up of our minds and hearts to God. Who am I that I can change any event that is occurring in the lives of another, that I can affect the outcome of any event? I am a child of my Father. My Father is the Almighty God. How I love my dear Father. He is God and He has created me in His own image and likeness. My beloved, dear Father, how I love You that You give me such gifts - that You allow me to share in Your life!

You are the Father of Jesus and You are My Father. Thank You, My Father, for all Your gifts and for Your life. Who am I that I can affect the life of any person?

I am a child of God. I call on my dear Father and He loves me so, He listens to me. I lift my heart to You, my dear beloved Father and You listen to little me and You care for me so much. I call upon God and the Almighty God cares for me with such love that He listens.

Jesus: Such truths have been given to you from My Father because of His great love for you. You are far more precious than the finest pearls, My beloved child. The Father so loved you He gave His Son so that you would have life. He gave His Son as a sacrifice for you. The Father gives to you His life through Jesus, His Son. You partake in His divine life. I am Jesus, Son of the Living God. My life I give to you, I live in your being, My beloved, I impart to you My divine life.

How many turn their backs on the great gift of this life given from the Father. To know this life and to know all those who have rejected this great gift!

I am the Almighty God, My power is endless. The power and might you felt within yourself is only a small sampling of My immense power. I am God and I am allowing you to experience what you are experiencing to spread My love to others. Your immense understanding into these mysteries will help you speak and write them for others. I have chosen you as an instrument to touch many hearts and bring them to My divine love. Great gifts and understandings into these mysteries I am giving to you. You will lead many priests to the love of God.

I am alive. I am God. I long to be loved by man and many have turned their backs on Me and forgotten Me. You must tell them all I am allowing you to experience, these sufferings and understandings into My deep love. This is the beginning of many days when I will allow you to experience the rejection I felt from those I loved. Your heart is in immense pain for the souls who reject Me despite My love for them. I beg you to speak and write. Make reparation for souls that have forgotten My love. Spread the love of My Sacred Heart and My Mother’s heart, throughout the world.

I love, I love, I love My beloved souls. I beg you to tell them. I beg Fr. Carter to tell every soul on this earth of My love. You will continue to suffer such pain and anguish in your heart. Suffer in silence for souls. I love so deeply and am so gravelly offended!

I am Jesus, My dear, little child. I am alive and in this world. I live in the hearts of men, I live in the consecrated Host, I am forgotten and ignored and treated with such dishonor.

Speak for Me, I beg you to spread this love throughout this earth. I am sending you as missionaries into this world.

On this Ascension Thursday, I have given you great sufferings and great joy. I have allowed you to experience the highest ecstasies in My love and plunge you into deep pain in your heart for those who reject Me. You, I send as missionaries to carry out the work I have begun. Be fearless and pray to the Spirit. This day I am giving you abundant graces to speak, and through this speaking, others are sent into this world as My apostles.

It is through the Shepherds of Christ Movement My love will be spread. Circulate My messages and rosary meditations. The love of the two Hearts will be known throughout this world through these messages and rosary meditations.

You will be fearless, everyone I send to you is a messenger to carry out My love. Circulate these letters with FIRE for I am delivering them to you in FIRE.

I am Jesus Christ, the Living God. I am allowing you to experience My life, alive in you and giving you these emotions to spread My love.

On this Ascension Thursday, I beg you to carry out the message to this world. Live My life in your life, every moment My life living within you. I am the Way, I am the Truth, I am the Life. I have commissioned you to go out and to carry this message - the message of My immense love for ALL mankind, including My burning love for My priests and religious. Souls will turn their hearts to Me from these letters. This is the mighty medicine to turn a sick, cold world to hearts filled with the love of God. Prayer, My beloved ones, is the lifting up of your minds and hearts to God. When you intercede to Me through My Mother’s heart, I will pour out My greatest mercy.

I will not refuse hearts begging for grace for their loved ones. Pray from your whole being. Let My life live in you.

You can pray and ask God to send help. You do not know the power of a heartfelt prayer. I listen to your prayers. The Father and Holy Spirit are listening to your prayers. The more you unite with God, the greater My messages to the world. I am crying out in your heart on this Ascension Thursday. I ascended into heaven and I have left behind you to carry out what I began. I am with you. I am alive this day. I will unite with you and the earth will know the power of the Almighty God. I am Jesus Christ, Chief Shepherd of the flock. Lead My little ones home - home to the burning members of My Most Sacred Heart, through My Mother’s heart.

R. I cried so hard, I have never been so immersed in heartache. I heard Him shout, “I Am Alive, I Am Alive.” I cried so hard, I could hardly write.

I know Him. He is alive in my being. My soul is filled with His love. I live the life of Jesus and Mary in my life. I love His life, her life - their presence forever with me. From this great gift, these rosary meditations, His life has become one with mine. I feel His life in the Mass. I hear Mary under the cross. I hear the cries for the souls going to hell for their willfulness and sins. I hear the laments of Jesus in the tabernacle - how He longs and thirsts for souls and is neglected and ignored. I hear Him tell of the sacrileges committed against the Holy Eucharist.

I heard Him this day. I felt His presence and the presence of the Almighty God as He cries out, “I am alive, I am alive, I am alive.” He is alive. We have the Mass. He gives us Himself in the Eucharist. Mary is appearing, we are given this rosary. We are sent as soldiers by Him in the Shepherds of Christ. We are thirsting for union with Him, sent by Him, apostles to go out to this world and spread His love, one with the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus, one with the Trinity. He will light this earth with hearts on fire for love of Him.

I come to you with greatest love, I am your loving Savior, I am your God, I died for you, I come to you this day.

The earth shakes and the Son of Man appears. He lives in the hearts of all. I want hearts on FIRE for love of Me. I want vibrancy and love from My beloved ones. Hold not back My love from this world.

I adore you, Oh Lord, I praise you, I worship you, I bless Him with my whole soul. My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord and holy, holy is His name! Jesus wants souls that are holy, on fire with the love of Jesus. Make novenas to the Holy Spirit to have hearts on FIRE with the love of God. Sound the trumpet, sound the gong - Jesus LIVES - He lives this day! Alleluia.

Sunday is a special day to praise Him, to love Him, to pray to Him - His day to be honored and worshipped in a special way. Pray from a pure and holy heart, a heart that sings for love of the Lord. Pray from your whole being.

$ 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
