Consecration Prayer for Peace

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

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

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

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

 

Prayer for Grace for Election and our Country

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

 

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.

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.

 

May 2, 2024

mind of God.
That is the best, go to Him.

Please give me Your gifts.

I am docile to your touch, paint the
image of Jesus on my soul.
Come Holy Spirit, possess my soul. Amen.

Open my eyes Lord, open my heart,

I am the soul waiting Your favor!!!

God is beautiful, in Him is absolute
perfection, beyond our comprehension.
Reach!! For in the death is the resurrection.

Sorrowful Mysteries

The Agony in the Garden

1. Luke 22: 39-46

The Mount of Olives

He then left to make his way as usual to the Mount of Olives, with the disciples following. When he reached the place he said to them, ‘Pray not to be put to the test.’

    Then he withdrew from them, about a stone’s throw away, and knelt down and prayed. ‘Father,’ he said, ‘if you are willing, take this cup away from me. Nevertheless, let your will be done, not mine.’ Then an angel appeared to him, coming from heaven to give him strength. In his anguish he prayed even more earnestly, and his sweat fell to the ground like great drops of blood. When he rose from prayer he went to the disciples and found them sleeping for sheer grief. And he said to them, ‘Why are you asleep? Get up and pray not to be put to the test.’

2. Jesus had such anguish in the Garden, He
    sweat blood.
3. Jesus knew the souls that would be lost
    despite all He suffered.
4. Be there in the Garden and envision the
    night.
5. See the Apostles, sprawled out sleeping.
6. See Jesus, hear Him, look at Him as He
    suffers.
7. You can see Jesus, hear His anxiety, you
    feel
    the fear, something terrible is about to
    happen.
8. Oh God, I am so sorry for the sins of the
    human race.
9. Oh God thank You.

10. Sing: God's Love

 

The Scourging at the Pillar

1. Luke 23: 15-19, 22

...As you can see, the man has done nothing that deserves death, so I shall have him flogged and then let him go.' But as one man they howled, 'Away with him! Give us Barabbas!' (This man had been thrown into prison because of a riot in the city and murder.)

And for the third time he spoke to them, 'But what harm has this man done? I have found no case against him that deserves death, so I shall have him flogged and then let him go.'

2. They bound Jesus and He was tied to the
    pillar.
3. They began beating His bare flesh, His
    back was covered with blood, He had
    holes in His flesh.
4. Be there and see what they did to Jesus.
    It is violent.
5. Listen to the beatings, the whips.
6. You hear the big men beating Jesus
    laughing as they scourged Jesus.

7. Sing: I Am Your Sacred Heart

8. Dear Jesus: I am so sorry.
9. Jesus stood in a puddle of His own blood.
10. Jesus: I love you, I love you, I love you.

 

Jesus is Crowned 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. We need to pray for purity in our hearts.
3. Jesus’ head was crowned with thorns for
    the sins of pride.
4. Jesus' head was covered with blood.
5. Envision the matted hair, the blood in
    Jesus’ mouth from blows to His Sacred
    Head.
6. They mocked Jesus, spitting on Jesus.
7. Sing: Crown Him with Many Thorns

8. Sing: Give Me your Heart, Oh Jesus

9. Sing: In My Heart

10. Envision the Sacred Head of Jesus,
    crowned with thorns.

 

The Carrying of the Cross

1. Luke 23:26-31

As they were leading him away they seized on a man, Simon from Cyrene, who was coming in from the country, and made him shoulder the cross and carry it behind Jesus. Large numbers of people followed him, and women too, who mourned and lamented for him. But Jesus turned to them and said, ‘Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for me; weep rather for yourselves and for your children. For look, the days are surely coming when people will say, "Blessed are those who are barren, the wombs that have never borne children, the breasts that have never suckled!" Then they will begin to say to the mountains, "Fall on us!"; to the hills, "Cover us!" For if this is what is done to green wood, what will be done when the wood is dry?'

2. They forced Jesus to carry the heavy cross,
    laden with our sins.
3. Jesus fell, He fell three times. His legs gave
    out under Him.
4. They made Simon of Cyrene help Jesus
    carry the cross.
5. Think of Simon of Cyrene having to help
    Jesus.
6. When Jesus fell, they poked Him to get up
    and they whipped Him when He was
    down, trying to force Him to get up.
7. Envision Jesus, see the way He struggled
    with the cross, He can hardly move, He is
    so weak, it is so heavy.
8. Jesus endured the bitter cross, He never
    gave up,
    He carried the cross, withstood the beatings,
    He got up when He fell under the cross.
9. Jesus was so wounded. Envision the whole
    scene. Watch Jesus.
10. Jesus: I did this for you, I love you so
    much.

    Sing: I Love You Jesus

 

The Crucifixion

1. Mark 15: 24-38

Then they crucified him, and shared out his clothing, casting lots to decide what each should get. It was the third hour when they crucified him. The inscription giving the charge against him read, ‘The King of the Jews’. And they crucified two bandits with him, one on his right and one on his left.

The passers–by jeered at him; they shook their heads and said, ‘Aha! So you would destroy the Temple and rebuild it in three days! Then save yourself; come down from the cross!’ The chief priests and the scribes mocked him among themselves in the same way with the words, ‘He saved others, he cannot save himself. Let the Christ, the king of Israel, come down from the cross now, for us to see it and believe.’ Even those who were crucified with him taunted him.

When the sixth hour came there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour. And at the ninth hour Jesus cried out in a loud voice, ‘Eloi, eloi, lama sabachthani?’ which means, ‘My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?’ When some of those who stood by heard this, they said, ‘Listen, he is calling on Elijah.’ Someone ran and soaked a sponge in vinegar and, putting it on a reed, gave it to him to drink saying, ‘Wait! And see if Elijah will come to take him down.’ But Jesus gave a loud cry and breathed his last. And the veil of the Sanctuary was torn in two from top to bottom.  

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. The Mass is the sacrifice of Calvary,
    sacramentally made present.
4. Jesus spread His arms on the cross.
5. I watch the priest spread His arms at Mass.
6. The priest is another Christ.
7. To know God is to love God. Deeper and
    deeper He makes Himself known to us in
    our hearts at Mass.
    Jesus is the Light of the world, the Light
    of Life.

    I love Him so much, so deep in my heart,
    in my being and He loves me, I know this
    in my being.

    Love is beyond words, it is oneness in
    our heart and soul with Him.
 
    “It is no longer, I who live, but He who
    lives in me.” And I want to be with Him,
    someday, in the fullness of life in heaven,
    in union with the one Triune God: Father,
    Son and Holy Spirit.

8.

9. Christ carried the heavy cross, laden with
    the darkest sins.

    Sin is heavy in our lives.
    Being free is being like Jesus. Doing the
    Father’s will.

    Mary did the Father's will whether carrying
    a boulder or a pebble.
    Mary is our model for being a disciple of
    Christ.

    Can you imagine the invisible wounds
    Mary had to her heart as she watched Him
    carry the cross?

    Can you imagine her suffering at the
    crucifixion, but her joy knowing the
    outcome of Jesus’ mission?
    What did Mary know? Knowing could
    have been given to her in a big way at
    the presentation in the temple.
    The Holy Spirit can infuse into our
    intellect these gifts of knowing and
    wisdom, we need for strength in our
    mission in life today. The Holy Spirit
    can infuse into our intellects understanding,
    one of His Gifts. The Holy Spirit counsels
    us from the mind of God.
    These gifts, are precious God-given gifts.

    But see the suffering, the price Christ paid
    for us. See the invisible suffering of Mary.

    Mary says to us: “I stood beneath the
    cross of my Son, Jesus.”

    Be one with Mary at Mass. being one in
    her Immaculate Heart and know: that
    does not replace suffering.

    Mary loved the will of the Father. Mary
    is the Spouse of the Holy Spirit.
    Mary our spiritual Mother, Mother of
    Jesus, Mother of the Church we love,
    Mother of the Eucharist, Mother of
    our precious, beloved priest.

    Mary knew suffering and joy.
    Mary the Singular Vessel, Mary daughter
    of the Father, Mother of Jesus, Spouse
    of the Holy Spirit. St. Bernard said:
    “Turn to Mary, Turn to Mary”.
    We know Mary is the most perfect
    disciple of Jesus, Mother of the Church.

    So tender, so sweet, so intimate is the
    love of God and the love of Mary.
    Amen.

    Suffering, Joy, following Jesus is our
    life, our sweetness and our hope.

10. Sing: A Song from Jesus


R. The Good Shepherd mounted the cross
and He died for our sins.



John 10: 11-15 

I am the good shepherd:
the good shepherd lays down his life
   for his sheep.
The hired man,
   since he is not the shepherd
and the sheep do not belong to him,
abandons the sheep
as soon as he sees a wolf coming,
   and runs away,
and then the wolf attacks
   and scatters the sheep;
he runs away
   because he is only a hired man
and has no concern for the sheep.
I am the good shepherd;
I know my own
and my own know me,
just as the Father knows me
and I know the Father;
and I lay down my life for my sheep.

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
