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.

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!!!!

Excerpt from Response to God's Love by Fr. Edward Carter, S.J.

    ... In reference to Christianity, God himself is the ultimate mystery. Radically, God is completely other and transcendent, hidden from man in his inner life, unless he chooses to reveal himself. Let us briefly look at this inner life of God.

    The Father, in a perfect act of self-expression, in a perfect act of knowing, generates his son. The Son, the Word, is, then, the immanent expression of God's fullness, the reflection of the Father. Likewise, from all eternity, the Father and the Son bring forth the Holy Spirit in a perfect act of loving.

    At the destined moment in human history, God's self-expression, the Word, immersed himself into man's world. God's inner self-expression now had also become God's outer self-expression. Consequently, the mystery of God becomes the mystery of Christ. In Christ, God tells us about himself, about his inner life, about his plan of creation and redemption. He tells us how Father, Son, and Holy Spirit desire to dwell within us in the most intimate fashion, how they wish to share with us their own life through grace. All this he has accomplished and does accomplish through Christ. St. Paul tells us: "I became a minister of this Church through the commission God gave me to preach among you his word in its fullness, that mystery hidden from ages and generations past but now revealed to his holy ones. God has willed to make known to them the glory beyond price which this mystery brings to the Gentiles—the mystery of Christ in you, your hope of glory. This is the Christ we proclaim while we admonish all men and teach them in the full measure of wisdom, hoping to make every man complete in Christ" (Col 1:25-28).


Sing: Eye Has Not Seen

R. Relationships require sacrifice, love and
co-operation, communication, understanding,
knowledge, wisdom, and give and take.

The Trinity is three Persons in one God.
The Trinity, the most perfect community.

Unity among people who are called to work
as one for Christ is important.

Love is answering God's call among those
called to work together.

There is no excuse for not doing God’s will.

We cannot make an excuse for disobeying
God's will.

In the world many want to be more isolated,
but if God calls us to support each other and
work with each other, we should know there
is strength in operating in unity as one.

If I am one in Jesus' Heart and you are one
in Jesus' Heart, we are on the same team.

We walk in His truth.


June 5, 2011 Rosary

transcribed live from a tape

Clearwater, Florida

Sing: I come to you with greatest love

Jesus: And I come to you and I give to you so many great blessings. And I want you to know that I am very, very close to you now. Let go. Surrender. Let Me outpour My love to you. Do not be afraid for I am God, child.

Our Father

Jesus: Settle down, for I want to take you into a place of peace, where I can touch your heart, and you will know Me more deeply than ever before in your life. But you must let go and surrender and let Me fill your heart now. Now. Now. Now. But you are busy child, even in silence, as I want to touch you and move in your heart, you are busy in your minds, and thinking so many things. Have you not learned after all these years, how to surrender? How to let go? How to come to that place, that special place, dwelling deeply in My Heart? Knowing the presence of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit within your graced, baptized soul. Oh sweet one, you are so busy about so many things, when indeed you miss some of the finest treasures.

3 Hail Marys

Jesus: And now let Me speak to you of fear. For the Apostles knew fear in the upper room. It can grip you like a cold hand, and you give into it. When I am guarding and watching you and I am with you now. So many things you allow to parade in your mind, when you can only live and do one thing at a time. Busy, busy, busy, busy, ah child. Why so busy?

    Come now away with Me into My Heart. Think of nothing but the love of God, that God dwells within you child. What keeps you from Me is your busy, busy mind. After the reception of the Eucharist, I want to touch you in a deep way, at the Mass, at the consecration - I am giving to you a grace — busy, busy, busy. Oh child, you will all go out of this life in the same way, when the time comes, when the Father is ready for you to leave. Surrender now. Let Me control your life. Know that the Father has a plan for you, that the Father has given to you all the talents to accomplish great things in the building of My Kingdom. But your busy-ness gets in My way.

    Why so busy child, busy planning, and planning what the Father has planned, and your planning is of your own making. Busy, busy - bzzzz like the bees. Come to Me at Mass. Busy, busy, busy. Will you let go now? Are you planning the next thing? Have you planned tomorrow? How about tomorrow night? How is your schedule? Pull out your calendar or your cell phone or wherever it is that you keep your busy things. Busy, busy, busy. Can you write Me into that calendar? Can I have that little space there? Oh no that's when you wash the dog! — ah-ah — I should have known much better.

The Resurrection

1. Jesus: Planning and prodding, wondering what comes next. Have you planned the day that you will leave the earth? Why not? Do you think you can ignore it? Do you know that, that is a reality? If you really know that that is a reality, that there will be that day when you will leave the earth, have you planned for that? Have you really planned to say when I leave the earth, this is going to end up happening. I am going to be made accountable for what I did here -- just like paying your bills — and I know that I'm going to be okay.

    I see your little calendars, your little cell phones, planning out every minute, writing everything down, making sure you don't forget anything. What about this? Did you do something there you shouldn't of? Oh you just told yourself it didn't matter. It wasn't your fault. How about two weeks ago? Ah, that didn't matter either. Do you know about two weeks ago when that happened, that made this happen, that made that happen, that made that happen — but if you would have given love, instead of making that decision, that would have made this happen, and this happen and that happen, and that happen. And right now there would be a lot of really good things happening. But when you chose the wrong path two weeks ago, you told yourself it didn't matter and forgot about the house of cards, that came after that decision. And you are not even thinking today about what's going on because of that decision. But you didn't miss a beat on that calendar.

    Right now, I want you to focus on death and resurrection. On looking into your heart right now and saying - Yes, they told me that. They said oh that was not good that I did that, but instead I got mad and I didn't listen. And then I did it again and again and again and again. And the people that I live with said the same thing that, that really isn't nice, but I didn't listen, because I just didn't want anybody telling me what to do. Do you know, child, that the decisions that you make can hurt your relation with Me and others?

    How is it that you prepare for all of these incidental things, but tell yourself when you know, that the same thing keeps hitting you in the face, by different people saying the same thing, that there is something that needs addressing there. Do you really want to prepare for that day when you will leave, and you want that reward that is promised to those who love and serve the Lord? I call you to be accountable and responsible for those things in your lives, in which you are hurting your relationship with God and with others.

    But it takes faith. It takes love. It takes wanting the purity of the hearts, so that your heart is more and more like the heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary. It takes listening to the Holy Spirit, that is not telling you, like the devil does, you did everything wrong — you either did everything wrong or you did everything right. That's not truth. You did this right and this right and this right and this right, but you need to fix that one there. What you do affects others. If you look at Eve you see that what she did affected everybody after that.

    This is a wake up call. It was a wake up call in these days before the feast of Pentecost to give your heart and your life to God, to quit the controlling, the plans, the prodding, all of the things that you tell yourselves, when you are busy, busy, busy, and not even leaving a little space to be alone, and to let the Holy Spirit move in your heart. To not do the examination of conscience daily, that you will know that you are praising your God, thanking your God, loving your God, checking your spiritual pulse, to see that if you are in desolation, that you are not acting in that desolation, in anger, in provoking people, in jealousies and then telling yourself when you know that the jealousy came over you, the boredom, that you went out and started a little fire. It's called letting go and wanting only God's will in your life.

R. The Resurrection. Jesus died so that we could live more fully His life of resurrection that begins here below. It's not saying now I'm 40, 50 and here I am, and I have arrived. It's saying now I'm getting closer to that day of final departure from the earth, that I need to plan for the most. How is my heart? Have I examined my conscience and see that I caused disharmony where there is to be unity, as a body of people working together, and no matter what, that could never happen, because I give into the old habits of making sure there is always somebody that we should look at. Unity means that all are working with hearts like the handmaid, Mary, preparing for that day of departure from the earth as if it could come tomorrow. Being accountable and responsible for your actions, and more than ever, taking the time to know that place in your heart, where the Father, Son and Holy Spirit truly dwell in the graced, baptized soul in great light.

Jesus: I want to fill you now, so that you will know this place, and that your planning is not that, oh yes that day is coming when I will depart from the life, but I don't ever see myself as doing anything wrong. Why go to purgatory if you can prepare and go to heaven?

2. Jesus: What about the people that are watching you now and saying, this is how they act when they are Christians. But you're not acting as I would act. What about those messages that you give, that should be those where people would say — We know they are Christians by their love — by their love, by their unity, by their desire to give honor and glory to God, to serve God, to do it with a motive of pleasing the Father, not having the ulterior motive of getting affection, or power or riches for oneself, because of feeling left out, or not good enough. Reality is, you are good enough, you were created by God. You are good enough. You sinned, but you are good enough. And you must make amends for your sins. You must tell God that you are sorry. You must act appropriately when you have caused damage to others.

    My child, follow in My footsteps, that you will die to these very ways that can be nooses later, that can block your way, when you want to die and go straight to heaven. Pray for the grace to live more the resurrection in your life. I came forth from the tomb victorious, glistening in white. Child, you are enough. I did it for you. But you sinned. Tell the truth, that you will change the bad habits and thank God for all the gifts that He has produced in this world through you. You were created by God the Father for a purpose -- to give, to love, and to be loved by others. Do not give into satan who comes when you are bored, when you are tired, when you are hungry, and like the old choo-choo, comes not with a car of coal, but a car of jealousies, pride, anger and emptiness — searching for his prey.

3. Jesus: Are you tired? You need to get the proper rest. You need to eat properly. You need to know that you are important to the Father's plan. And you need to have a heart that is filled with joy, for you are so special to God.

4. Jesus: The Father created you uniquely special with a purpose. No one can give the love to God or to others that you can give. Focus on this, My child. You are so precious to God.

5. Jesus: Pray to be all that the Father wants you to be, that you will give the unique contribution that He has called you to, in the way you love, in the talents that you have, in the gifts given in unity with others in the helping to build My Kingdom. You have been chosen by God. Say 'yes' to being so special.

6. Jesus: Put aside pride and jealousies and anger. Put aside those things that are traps for you, and remember Eve and her pride in the garden, and how all suffered because of her sin. Pray to the Holy Spirit to help you to see with eyes unveiled, how you are to be more and more in My image and likeness.

7. Sing: And they will know we are Christians by our love, by our love etc.

R. And Christ rose from the dead to show us the victory. The victory is in Him. The victory is in living more the virtuous life. The victory is not giving into the deadly sins or the wounded human nature, or listening to the conversations of satan, telling us that we are not loved by others, and therefore, we should seek to get affections, or power or credit from others to make us feel better. The deal is, we were created by God and He loves us so much, but we are all sinners, and to live that life of resurrection more fully, we must be accountable for our actions. Look at our motives. How are our motives? Are they done because we know it's God's will and we love Him. Or are they done because we are feeling some kind of deficiency in trying to control, trying to fill ourselves up for what we are telling ourselves that is not even the truth, because it's a lie from satan. We are enough. God has called us to His service. Let us move steadfastly ahead and go out of ourselves, and not give-in to those caved-in habits, that the devil wants us to have, self-pity, self-centeredness, when we need to focus on that place, knowing that the Father, Son and Holy Spirit dwell within our graced, baptized soul.

And He says (sing) I will be with you that is my promise. I will be with you forever more. Trust in my love. Give me all your cares for I will be with you forever more.

8. Hail Mary
9. Hail Mary
10. Hail Mary


R. Jesus said that I should tell you about this. I remember Merle Carter, that's Fr. Carter's sister. And he told me, he said, Rita, you have to take care of my sister. She really doesn't have anybody. And awhile ago Merle had a stroke and we went to see her, and she just seemed so despondent. And we never know how what we have done can affect others. But God knows what's in our heart.

    And He wants us to love and forgive and to move on. He wants us to walk in His footsteps, and He shows us how He was whipped, crowned with thorns. He stood in a puddle of His own blood at the pillar, as they tore His flesh and He didn't do anything. He did it because of our sins. And we want Him to forgive us for what we have done. He shows us He loved us so much that He allowed His flesh to be torn, His head to be crowned with thorns and He didn't do anything. He took flesh. He died on the cross, hung there for 3 agonizing hours for our sins.

    He knows everything. He knows our motive, He knows why we do what we do. He knows when we are not nice. It's not between me and you and if this happened to me and that happened to you, then who is right and who is wrong. He knows the very nook and cranny of our heart to the greatest detail. It is in that purity in our heart that we are one in Him and thus empowered - empowered - because of our oneness with Him, to serve Him in this world today, that is in so need of our response, that Fr. Carter talks about in the Response in Christ and the Response to God's Love books. So we can put those books all over the world, but we ourselves are not responding in love, because of jealousies, and anger, and unforgiveness, and all of the things that we kind of like close our eyes, look away and say I'm perfect. And then expect everybody else to be perfect while we are not perfect at all, and judge them that way. How can we judge others that they have to be perfect, when we are not perfect ourselves. Do we want God to judge us this way? It's time to sing the song - And They call us Christians by our love.

Sing: And they will know we are Christians by our love etc.

The Ascension of Our Lord into Heaven

1. Jesus: And I come to you and I give to you My song. A Song from Jesus.

Sing: A Song from Jesus

Jesus: And I forgave you. I forgave you over and over and over again. Freedom is in doing the Father's will. Freedom is in seeing through the eyes of God, the reality that you need to see. Not in lying about defects in your heart or motives of jealousies or anger. But the freedom is in cleaning out the trash and praying that you hearts are made pure, in dying to the things that keep you from truly that intimacy, that I want with you, My beloved, precious soul.

2. Jesus: What are your actions based on? Are they based on your feelings? Are they based on what others have done to you? Are they based on the will of God? In doing what you know God is asking you to do in suffering and in joy, because when you say 'no' to that part of the plan, that the Father wants to implement, there's a whole house full of cards, like ripples on a pond, that are being affected by the poor judgment of doing other things than the Father's will.

3. Sing: I have called you by name. You are mine says the Lord. You are precious to me be not afraid because I love you.

4. R. And I saw this, that the first commandment tells us that we have to put God first in our life. But what satan wants to do through his trickery and deception is for some way to get us to plan out our own life. To tell ourselves that we are hurt because of something, and then to decide that our hurt feelings are more important that putting God first in our life. We can cripple ourselves up, spiritually, by trying to run our own life. And He is watching. He is watching us. He is talking to us. He is telling us in the Blue Books about His love, message after message after message, raising us up. When we listen to satan we don't go up, when we are basing our actions on jealousy, anger, seeking dominance for dominance sake, lust, food, whatever it is, we don't go up. They are deadly sins. But it doesn't only hurt us. It hurts the work that God wants to do through us to build the Kingdom. . . .

5. Jesus: And I said that I want you to go out into the world and to spread the Good News, but you must live the Word yourselves. It's not like words that you talk about. It's like really loving God and loving others as yourself. It's about reading St. Paul and doing what you are being told in there. It is about living in unity. It is about knowing about the oneness that the Father and I have, and the love that We have for you, and that God dwells in a special way in the graced, baptized soul. It is about telling, that Good News, for satan does not want you to do that. So many make their own bed and then lay in it, and it is a bed of sorrow that they made by listening to the true reality, as it is, seen through the eyes of God. But a false reality, that they have formed by listening more and more to the evil ones, who wants you to lose your focus, who wants you to be sad and bowed down, who wants you to fear, who wants you to say 'no' to your vocation, who wants you to say you have to protect yourself from the very thing that God is calling you to do, because it is threatening.

6. Jesus: For satan tells you what is wrong is right, and what is right is wrong. As Eve in the garden that thought she would be equal to God — you do not know it all. Your whole life is lived to grow in greater knowledge of God, to come with that docility rather than to come like you know it all, and block the availability that I am trying to give to you, to teach you about Myself. If you knew it all, if you were without sin — then why did I come and die for your sins?

7. Sing: Go, Go, Go

Jesus: Go out to the far ends of this earth and spread the Good News, through your prayers. Unite more deeply with your heavenly Father, with Me in the Holy Spirit, that your life will be lived in helping to build My Kingdom, not in being afraid of your shadow.

8.  Hail Mary

The Descent of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles and the Virgin Mary

R. And they were transformed from fear to fearlessness, and they went into the world to spread the good news, and today the Bishops, the descendent of the Apostles, bring to us this great gift that God has given to us, and been passed down through the centuries. Oh God, You are so good to us. Why with such great gifts that we are given, do we fall into the trap, but why did Eve fall into the trap, too? Because of pride. Because of the deadly sins. Because of jealousies. Never, Jesus says, act in desolation, because that is what the devil wants. He wants you to be sad, bored, irritated, and then go and do something that drives us from deeper intimacy with God and hurts a lot of people, because we are saying 'no' to the building of the Kingdom.

1. R. And the first sin in the scriptures is Eve disobeying God out of pride, wanting to be equal to God.

2. Song: I Am a God of Justice

3. Song: Jesus I Love You

4. Jesus: What you are seeing on the television and in the world today, do you really think that this is the love that I showed to the world, when I came to this earth, when I took on a little baby body, when I taught you, when I worked miracles, when I went through the bitter passion and died on the cross for your sins and rose on the 3rd day. Is that what you are seeing, in the love that is being displayed on this earth? Is there that kind of love out there?

    When I look to the earth in many places, there is so much challenging of authority, there is satan trying to tear down the structures. There is children rebelling against parents. There are people that are not working as one. There is disobedience to the commandments. There is challenging and arguing and lies among people in politics, that made My Heart bleed, as I walked in the bitter passion. I suffered for these sins. I know the motives of your hearts. I have called you to respond to My love, to love one another, and to show to the world what it is to be a Christian, that they will say - you will know that they are Christians by their love, by their love, by their unity.

    People in marriages can fight back and forth, and back and forth, and when they decide that they will start working together in love, they can't believe that they ever had pity pot issues before. One acting in selfishness against the other, one trying to dominant the other. The more you give into yourselves when you are acting according to the deadly sins, the more you will continue to act that way. And you will rob yourself of life, that is why they are called deadly sins. And tell yourself to protect yourself, against what God is calling you to do, not to do it, that is coming from satan.

Song: I have called you by name you are mine says the Lord etc.

Jesus: I have given you a call in your vocation to serve Me and to help build the Kingdom. When you do other things, your heart is in misery.

5. Jesus: Your heart will be in great happiness living according to your vocation the plan of the Father, doing His Hill, seeking His will, wanting His will and acting in love as you do it. The more you give in to the negativity and deadly sins, the harder your journey will become, for God created you with a purpose, and all of your stubbornness will not change His Plan.

6. Jesus: You see what happened when Eve rebelled against the Father.

7. Jesus: It is pride that blocks you from knowing more and more about God. Your whole life is lived, you were created to know, love and serve God. And yet satan tells you, you know it all. How can that be right? Be in competition, you know more than somebody else, so why you are thinking of this competition, you are closing yourself down, instead of being open to the gifts that I want to give you.

8. Jesus: It is the 5th. And so I can say to you, for 17 years I have called this day for prayer.

9. Hail Mary
10. Hail Mary 

Sing: I Come to you with greatest love

The Assumption

Mary: Reach out, my children, I am Mary your Mother. Come to my Immaculate Heart. Pray to the Holy Spirit, that He will enlighten your hearts, that you will know more the plan of the Father and that you will follow it with a heart that is pure and loving, that you will live your life to know, love and serve God more, with your whole heart, your whole soul and you whole being and to love your neighbor as yourself. I am the perfect spouse of the Lamb, for I pleased God in serving Him. I am the singular vessel. I am the daughter of the Father, the Mother of the Son, the spouse of the Holy Spirit. But for you to know how to be the spouse of the Lamb, if you go to my Immaculate Heart, you will know for I will teach you. I will teach you the ways of the Heart of my Son, that you will be more intimately united to Jesus. His Heart is on fire for love of you. Listen to me for I tell you the truth.

1. R. Dear Mary, we pray through your powerful intercession, the intercession of Our Lady of Clearwater, that the Holy Spirit will fill us and that we will see more through the eyes of the Father, the plan of the Father, that we will be healed more and more as the grace of God fills us, and the grace is given to us to cooperate with the grace, to make God all that He should be in our heart, that we live our lives giving our will to God instead of trying to control, and tell Him what we want. Help us to live our vocation, more ardently than ever before knowing that everything that we do affects so many people and the plan of the Father, for the souls of the earth, for the souls in purgatory. Help us to have a wider vision, wider and wider every day, as we are filled more abundantly with God's life, with His grace. And we come to that place of quiet inside knowing the presence of Father, Son and Holy Spirit dwelling in us in a special way in our graced, baptized soul.

3. R. We want to pray for everybody on Jerry's list and everybody that we promised to pray for. Amen.

4. R. We want to take a couple of seconds here and ask God for some special intentions in silence, and ask God to read our hearts for the things that we are all worried about, and we have been asking Him for in our hearts all day and lately, and we ask Him to please hear our prayers. We pray all this through the intercession of Our Lady of Clearwater on this 5th.

Jesus: Special blessings I have outpoured to you, My precious ones. Amen.

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
