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. Dear God help me that I may see.
Open my mind Holy Spirit to understand
more inspiration into the hidden mysteries.

I looked out and I could see the hills and
valleys far away as I drove, so beautiful
to me my sight.
After a while my vision became covered
somewhat and it was harder to see as I
drove.

I knew I needed to go to the eye doctor
who looked in both eyes and diagnosed
cataracts.

I scheduled the appointments, they did
one at a time.

Not only was my clarity of reading signs
while driving
impaired; after the first surgery I realized
that I saw in a creamy yellow with the
cataract.

I thought my house was painted white on
the walls, my son’s house his walls painted
bright white.

The colors were not true as they really were
with the cataracts.

Our spiritual vision can get very distorted
the more one sins.
Satan tries to make right look wrong and
wrong look right.

After Adam and Eve sinned they had
distorted vision.

Oh God that I may see, oh Holy Spirit, infuse
into my intellect the gift of understanding.

Like seeing from a mountain top the details
of understanding into the divine mysteries is
given to us from God.

We pray to Him to understand more and more
depths into the hidden mystery of God’s love.

I know His gift in all aspects of my spiritual
vision as I seek the gift of understanding from
the Holy Spirit.

The love of God or anyone is depth, time spent,
seeking more, love of knowing God, under-
standing God, having wisdom of truth comes
from God.

Oh Holy Spirit, I implore the gifts of wisdom,
understanding, knowledge to be infused into
my intellect.

Oh God, that I may know You more deeply,
love You with all my heart, seek You most
fervently and understand as one seeing clearly
from a high mountain.

Depth, wisdom, understanding, reaching,
treasuring and my soul delights in Thee my
God.

Like the blind man, oh that I could see.
Open my eyes Lord.

After the eye surgeries for cataracts I could
see, so far, so clear.

Open my heart Lord with eyes of faith.

And the Holy Spirit works with Mary,
especially in the Mysteries of the Rosary.
A journey into the Hearts of Jesus and Mary
and Mary put all these things and pondered
them in her heart.

R. Dear Holy Spirit come to me, possess
my soul, I love You, Holy Spirit.
When I am weak, I am strong in You.

Dear Holy Spirit infuse in my intellect
wisdom, knowledge and understanding.

difficult give me the gift of fortitude, dear
Holy Spirit.
Sanctify my heart to act purely for the
honor and glory of God.
I may be willing, but I need Your gift to
give me courage to act as You desire.
Help me to know and love the heavenly
Father's will for me and to do it in love
for the honor and glory of God.

Help me to always put God first in my life,
in love for God in my heart.
Help me to walk realizing, I am the creature,
God is the Creator.

Help me to be patient and strong and
persevere in my life until I rest with Thee
forever in heaven.

Please Holy Spirit give me the gift of fear
of God that I do not offend you in sins
of unloving ways against God.
You are so good and deserving of all my
love.
I worship You and love You -
Help my interior disposition at Mass to be
that of purity in pleasing the Heavenly
Father, in my offering united to Jesus in
the Mass.
Dear Holy Spirit please help me in the gift
of piety to do that which please my Heavenly
Father with the tenderness as His little child.
Thank you God for all You give to me.
I pray this "All for the honor and Glory of
God". Amen.
 

Matthew 22: 36-40

'Master, which is the greatest commandment of the Law?' Jesus said to him, 'You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and the first commandment. The second resembles it: You must love your neighbour as yourself. On these two commandments hang the whole Law, and the Prophets too.'


Dear Holy Spirit, strengthen our will and
move like a Divine breath in our soul, to
be docile sons and daughters of our
Heavenly Father. Amen.

Alleluia.

 

June 8, 2024

R. We never know what tomorrow may bring.
Life is a gift, even in suffering we can
learn mighty lessons.

Dear Holy Spirit infuse into our intellect
wisdom, knowledge, and understanding.
Help us, counsel us.
Please give us your gifts: piety, fear of God,
and fortitude.

There are many people in the world dealing
with very difficult diseases.

In Shepherds of Christ we pray for the priests,
the Church and the world.

In the Morning Offering we offer up all we do
all day. Here is a simple Morning Offering
praying for our intentions and the priest, the
Church and the world.

We can offer up all we do trying to do the
Father’s will in love united to the Mass and it
is a prayer, that can bring down great grace for
us and souls.

Mary told Fr. Carter “pray, pray, pray”.

 

            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. 

 

June 10, 2024

R. It takes a lot of courage to admit when
you are wrong.

It is better to have loved and lost than
never to have loved at all.

A life without love is no life at all.

It’s not better to live your life to be
isolated.

God made us social people.

February 13, 2024

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!!!!

  Mysteries of Light

The Baptism of Jesus

1. Matthew 3: 13-17

Then Jesus appeared: he came from Galilee to the Jordan to be baptised by John. John tried to dissuade him, with the words, ‘It is I who need baptism from you, and yet you come to me!’ But Jesus replied, ‘Leave it like this for the time being; it is fitting that we should, in this way, do all that uprightness demands.’ Then John gave in to him. And when Jesus had been baptised he at once came up from the water, and suddenly the heavens opened and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and coming down on him. And suddenly there was a voice from heaven, ‘This is my Son, the Beloved; my favour rests on him.’ 

2. The heavens were thrown open the
    voice of the Father was heard.
3. "This is My beloved Son in whom I
    am well pleased."
4. Jesus is the Light of the world.
5. Through baptism we receive a sharing
    in Divine life.
6. The more He shares His life, the more
    we are saturated with His life, the more
    we know Him.
7. He reveals Himself to us - we see the light.
8. The Kingdom of God is at hand. It is all
    here: the Mass, the Eucharist, God giving
    Himself.
9. To partake more in His life, we must give
    ourselves to Him.
10. We are in darkness in varying degrees.
    The more we are saturated with His life,
    the more we see.

 

The Marriage at Cana

1. John 2: 1-10  

On the third day there was a wedding at Cana in Galilee. The mother of Jesus was there, and Jesus and his disciples had also been invited. And they ran out of wine, since the wine provided for the feast had all been used, and the mother of Jesus said to him, ‘They have no wine.’ Jesus said, ‘Woman, what do you want from me? My hour has not come yet.’ His mother said to the servants, ‘Do whatever he tells you.’  There were six stone water jars standing there, meant for the ablutions that are customary among the Jews: each could hold twenty or thirty gallons. Jesus said to the servants, ‘Fill the jars with water,’ and they filled them to the brim. Then he said to them, ‘Draw some out now and take it to the president of the feast.’ They did this; the president tasted the water, and it had turned into wine. Having no idea where it came from—though the servants who had drawn the water knew—the president of the feast called the bridegroom and said, ‘Everyone serves good wine first and the worse wine when the guests are well wined; but you have kept the best wine till now.’ 

2. Jesus performed His first miracle of
    His public life at Cana.
3. Jesus changed water into wine.
4. God is a God of miracles.
5. The Mass is the sacrifice of Calvary
    sacramentally made present.
6. In the Mass bread and wine is changed
    into the Body and Blood of Jesus.
7. What a gift.
8. These are the mysteries of Light.
9. Thank You God for Your miracles.

10. From back of the Mass Book

Oh the Mass, the greatest gift of love between God and man. The Almighty God gives Himself completely to us and we give ourselves to Him. The Bread of Life comes to me and outpours His love, His life to me. The sacrifice is God, He is the Lamb of God, and He gives Himself to us. I love sharing in His divine love. Oh God, open our eyes and give us lights that we may see more clearly the great gift You give us, that we may in this great act of love, give ourselves more completely, that we will worship You and praise You and bow down and adore our most beauteous God. I love You, I love You, oh I love You God, Thy kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven. Enlighten us that we will treasure this great gift given to us. God gives Himself to man.


 

 

Building the Kingdom of God

1. John 18: 36-37

Jesus replied, ‘Mine is not a kingdom of this world; if my kingdom were of this world, my men would have fought to prevent my being surrendered to the Jews. As it is, my kingdom does not belong here.’ Pilate said, ‘So, then you are a king?’ Jesus answered, ‘It is you who say that I am a king. I was born for this, I came into the world for this, to bear witness to the truth; and all who are on the side of truth listen to my voice.’

2. October 18, 1995

I AM LOST IN HIM

Written after Communion:

I am but a speck on the great abyss of His love. I see myself as a little speck and tucked deeply in the ocean of His love. I lose myself entirely in Him. Some things are not so important now. I am lost in Him and His love. I can go to Him, and I am totally at peace. I am lost in Him. I can let go. I am so tiny, totally enveloped in Him, with no cares, only His presence. I am in ecstasy.

3. I am in the great abyss of His love. I am lost in Him. There is such healing of our hearts in the Eucharist; to unite with God, Who is love, is to be filled with love!

4. October 17, 1995 (excerpts)

Heaven is a gift given to us from the Supreme Being, God. We must realize that if we go to heaven it is because of His great love for us.

5. In the Shepherds of Christ Movement, we are telling people about consecrating their hearts to Jesus and Mary. If enough people give their hearts to Jesus and Mary, we will have peace. Their hearts, then, will be hearts of love and will respond in love to all difficulties and turn to God. If most people do not respond to Mary's plan and remain bitter and hateful in their hearts, we will have war. The heart determines our actions. Hearts consecrated to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary are hearts of love. Hearts that are filled with bitterness and hatred will respond with hate and start wars.

6. It is a great gift to be called to be an apostle in the Shepherds of Christ Movement and spread His love to the world.

7. Mary said that until a sufficient number have consecrated their hearts to Jesus and Mary, we will not have peace in the world.

8. This is good news, we must try to spread this Movement to the world. Fr. Carter is reaching the priests in his spirituality newsletter. It is centered in consecrating the priests' hearts to Jesus and Mary.

9. Jesus is my refuge and my life. It is in Him I live. His Mother is my Mother. She is the highest human person. How tenderly He loves His creatures that He gave to her the gift of becoming Mother of God. A creature becomes the Mother of God! It is in realizing this mystery more, I see His immense love for me.

10. He gives to Mary the gift of being born without sin. She is a human person. She is sinless.

She is our model, and she is our Mother. She is immaculate. He raises her to be so pure and holy. It is in blaspheming her that we are hurting ourselves for she is our beloved Mother. In blaspheming her, we do not realize the great dignity and honor that God raises man when He gives this great gift to her.

Notes: The most perfect sacrifice, the most efficacious prayer, is, of course, the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass offered to God.

 

The Transfiguration

1. 2 Peter 1:16-19

When we told you about the power and the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, we were not slavishly repeating cleverly invented myths; no, we had seen his majesty with our own eyes. He was honoured and glorified by God the Father, when a voice came to him from the transcendent Glory, This is my Son, the Beloved; he enjoys my favour. We ourselves heard this voice from heaven, when we were with him on the holy mountain.

So we have confirmation of the words of the prophets; and you will be right to pay attention to it as to a lamp for lighting a way through the dark, until the dawn comes and the morning star rises in your minds.

2. Jesus took Peter, James, and John up
    Mount Tabor.
3. The voice of the Father was heard.
4. ‘This is my Son, the Beloved. Listen to
    him.’

5. These are mysteries of light.
6. The priest is another Christ.
7. Without the priest, we would not have
    the Eucharist.
8. Thank You, God for the Eucharist.
9. Jesus is truly present in the Eucharist.

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

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

 

The Institution of the Eucharist

1. Matthew 26: 26-29

Now as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had said the blessing he broke it and gave it to the disciples. ‘Take it and eat,’ he said, ‘this is my body.’ Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he handed it to them saying, ‘Drink from this, all of you, for this is my blood, the blood of the covenant, poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. From now on, I tell you, I shall never again drink wine until the day I drink the new wine with you in the kingdom of my Father.’

2. A Prayer Before the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass

    Let me be a holy sacrifice and unite with God in the sacrament of His greatest love.

    I want to be one in Him in this act of love, where He gives Himself to me and I give myself as a sacrifice to Him. Let me be a holy sacrifice as I become one with Him in this my act of greatest love to Him.

    Let me unite with Him more, that I may more deeply love Him. May I help make reparation to His adorable Heart and the heart of His Mother, Mary. With greatest love, I offer myself to You and pray that You will accept my sacrifice of greatest love. I give myself to You and unite in Your gift of Yourself to me. Come and possess my soul.

    Cleanse me, strengthen me, heal me. Dear Holy Spirit act in the heart of Mary to make me more and more like Jesus.

    Father, I offer this my sacrifice, myself united to Jesus in the Holy Spirit to You. Help me to love God more deeply in this act of my greatest love.

    Give me the grace to grow in my knowledge, love and service of You and for this to be my greatest participation in the Mass. Give me the greatest graces to love You so deeply in this Mass, You who are so worthy of my love.

                                               -Mass Book, December 27, 1995

3. Sing: I Love You Jesus


 

4. From the Mass Book - January 2, 1997

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

"The grace of Our Lord, Jesus Christ, and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all."

God pours out His grace in this Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. It is the greatest gift when God gives Himself to us.

We share with God His life, given to us abundantly in the Mass.

He gives Himself to us and we give ourselves to Him. The great love affair between God and man: His Holy Mass.

The priest is another Christ to us. It is Christ present, through the priest, celebrating the Mass. We must see Christ in the priest, see Him celebrate the Mass, see His beautiful brown hair, His gentle face, see Him, our Savior. This Jesus Christ that came was born an infant and gave Himself to His death on the cross that we would share His life. See Him now in the Mass, giving Himself in the greatest gift of all. He gives us His divine love and His divine life.

Oh, we thank You for Your life. We know Jesus died and rose and gave us a sharing in His holy life. His life is now abundantly poured, as a fountain to us, especially in the Mass.

Then we hear His word. Let the word of God penetrate our being. Let us feel this Living Word of God. As a two-edged sword, it comes forth with such conviction and love and it penetrates the souls of the faithful with such love. It is food indeed, food for our soul.

5. January 2, 1997 continues

He is the Good Shepherd. He speaks to us. He gives us all we want. "Yahweh is my shepherd, I lack nothing." (Ps. 23:1)

He gives us green pastures, and His water pours out and refreshes us. He outpours His grace as a fountain to feed us with His life.

He is a just God, good and kind, all loving, for He is Love. We want for nothing for He outpours His love and His life to us in the Mass. We feast on His Body and Blood and are fed with His Word. We become one in Him and He shares Himself with us.

It is through the Mass celebrated by the hands of a holy priest that we will experience the Mass the way Christ intends. These writings are insights which hopefully will help lead you to the spring of life-giving water, the fountain of love and life He outpours in the Mass.

There will be a new earth when men will see with the light of seven suns. They will know God. A people walking in darkness will see a great light. They will no longer be blind, they will be enlightened, they will love God with the greatest love in the Mass. They will feast on His Body and Blood and will be united as one body in His holy Church through His life given to us in the Eucharist.

We will drink copiously from the fountain of grace which He pours out in the Mass. We will be filled with His love, absorbed with the love of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit and feasting on His divine life.

We see with the vision of God. We partake in such a union with God. We see with the light the Spirit gives to us. The priest celebrates the Mass and we know God with such an intense knowing in this union. We are saturated with His life flowing from the hands of His consecrated priest.

6. January 2, 1997 continues

And I look at Him, the priest, and I see Jesus there. I see Him giving Himself to Me. I see the new and Holy City. I see with such clarity the great gift that God gives to us in the Mass!

We learn how to love in the Mass, for we unite to God. He gives us such an intimate sharing in His divine love that we carry His love out to the world. In this union we know His loving to an intense degree and we carry this love out to others. We share in an intense way in His divine act of loving. He, Who is love, gives Himself to us and we are absorbed in His love and we know intensely how God loves. We are filled with love for God and for each other, for, in the oneness He is loving through us. He gives us lights into His loving capacity and we know His loving power in an intensity we did not know before.

We then pray. We offer up our intentions for this Mass. It is now we who intercede to Him to outpour His grace on us and help us with these intentions.

We pray for this reign of peace when the Sacred Heart of Jesus will reign and the Immaculate Heart of Mary will triumph and men will fervently love and adore God with burning love. We pray for all souls and the Church and we beg for His help, His love, His grace.

We offer ourselves as a sacrifice. We offer the bread that will become the bread of life.

The priest mixes the water and the wine and we realize how His Divinity mixes with our humanity.

We offer the wine that will become our spiritual drink-His blood.

7. January 2, 1997 continues

I give myself to Him and I beg to be cleansed of my sins with the washing of the hands.

"May the Lord accept the sacrifice at your hands for the praise and glory of His name, for our good and the good of all His Church."

We ask Him to accept the gifts we want to give Him, we give Him thanks, we lift up our hearts in thanks and praise and we sing out:

"Holy, Holy God, of power and might..." we sing Him praise and thank Him-oh, God we love Thee so much."

My heart is so filled with such awe. I cry because I love Him so much.

Every word in the Mass, I love. The priest consecrates the host and changes it into the Body and Blood of Christ.

Oh, it makes me cry for I am so struck with awe at what happens at the Consecration. I unite in the oneness with the priest, with Christ and with all present, with heaven and earth. I am one in that moment, united in the sacrifice of Christ giving Himself to the Father.

This is the moment when I unite in such oneness with Christ in the purity of Mary's heart. I give myself as a sacrifice. I offer myself to the Father.

The Father looks down and He sees us united to His Son's Sacrifice. It is in this oneness that His grace is outpoured on us, that we die to that which is not like Him and that the Holy Spirit works in the heart of Mary and fills us with His life.

8. January 2, 1997 continues

I am in ecstasy as I realize more and more the great gift of love that God gives us in His holy Mass. I am taken to such heights, being wrapped in the presence of God. It is rapture, this Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.

It is a great gift, experiencing this intense presence of the Almighty God: Through Him, With Him, and In Him.

We pray to the Father the prayer as Jesus taught us and beg, "thy Kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven."

We pray: "For the Kingdom, the power and the glory are yours, now and forever."

We beg for peace in our hearts. We share this peace with one another. Then we beg of the Lamb of God. I want to get down to the ground and beg for His grace, mercy and forgiveness for our sins.

Please, God, I see us as a sinful people. I want the grace and mercy to flow abundantly.

He raises the Host and says: "This is the Lamb of God Who takes away the sins of the world, happy are those who are called to His supper."

We respond: "Lord, I am not worthy to receive you, but only say the word and I shall be healed."

I receive the Almighty God in Communion. All I want is Him. Oh, God, I want you, I adore you, I worship you, I love you.

Oh, for this moment when God gives Himself to me. Oh, God, words do not express this time-this intense presence of You within my being. Oh, sweet Savior, I love You!

You share Yourself so intimately with me. You imprint on my soul a knowing of Your Divine Being that is so intimate in this Communion when You give Yourself to me.

9. January 2, 1997 continues

Oh, let our hearts be open to His grace that we may know this great gift more, that we will partake more fully in this greatest act of love with Divinity.

He shares Himself with us, the Almighty God, in such oneness. This is the greatest way to bind us with each other, to unite with each other in the Mass and Communion.

And so I sing the love of God, the love of His Mass. I beg you to pray for the grace that He can teach you in these writings about His most intimate love affair with man, the gift of Himself-the gift He gives us in the Mass.

The Holy Sacrifice, the sacrifice of Calvary, sacramentally-made-present in the Mass when He gives Himself to us with the greatest love!

And what does He ask in return? He asks that we love one another, that we give Him the glory, the thanksgiving, the adoration that is His due as the Almighty God.

He sends us forth with His blessing to share His most intimate love with all. We go forth as other Christs in the world. For He is alive this day and He lives in us and He gives His love to others through us. We act as channels of His life to one another.

10. January 2, 1997 continues

The Mass is the richest source of His life. His life flows through the body, the Church, especially through the Sacraments and the Mass.

Oh Jesus, from the fountain of life that pours forth from Your pierced Heart, give us holy priests whose hearts are consecrated to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary to celebrate the Mass-that there is such oneness between the priest and Christ that His grace will flow copiously.

We thirst for the fountain of life pouring forth from the pierced Heart of Christ. It is His life we seek and find in the Church. It is His love we want and we experience the greatest love affair with God in the Mass.

These books on the Mass are accounts of my intimate love affair with our Almighty God. Many experiences were enlightenments I received in the Mass.

I strongly advise all to pray, to say the Holy Spirit Prayer, the Consecration Prayers, and the Prayer before the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, before Mass. (These prayers follow this message).

This book is the journey into the red room, the inner chamber of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, through the gateway, the pure and Immaculate Heart of His Mother.

It is in the Mass we give ourselves in such love to our Holy God. He gives Himself to us and we give ourselves to Him.

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
