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.

Feast of the Immaculate Heart

A Prayer for Distress

Jesus help me,
please come to my aid!

Through a storm is turmoil
and it looks bad, but the storm can end and little damage happen.

Oh God help me, come to my aid.
Oh God my all, my strength,
My all, my days I give to You.

O God take care of me, protect me in my distress,
My God and my all, I love you.

I trust You, Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place my trust in Thee.
Oh God, come to my aid, help me in this distress, come to my aid, my God.

Help me in this moment, answer me in my distress, my God.

Come to my aid.

        From Tell My People by Fr. Edward J. Carter, S.J.

The Riches of the Immaculate Heart

Mary: “My beloved priest-son, how often I have pressed you to my maternal and Immaculate Heart in the greatest love! How often I allow you to taste the sweetness of this Heart. How often I make you aware that my Heart is your refuge where you feel so much loved, where you feel sosecure, where you feel bathed in peace! I desire that you tell all the people about the riches contained in my Immaculate Heart. Tell my people to come to my Heart each day. I will caress them with my maternal love. I will lead them ever closer to the Sacred Heart of my Son. I will tell them to listen to Jesus. I will remind them that He is their Lord and Master. I will remind them to do whatever He tells them to do.

“Yes, my dearly beloved son, tell my people all these things. Keep reminding them of my great love for them. Keep reminding them how I love to draw them to my maternal and Immaculate Heart!”

Reflection: Is there anyone who, listening to these words of Mary, does not long for a closer union with the loving Heart of our Mother?

Prayer: Mary, draw me each day more deeply within your Heart, so that each day you can place me more deeply within Jesus’ Heart!



The Two Hearts and the Mass

Jesus: “My beloved friend, tell My people that they are living in the Age of the Two Hearts—that of My Heart and My Mother’s heart. My people live in the initial stages of this great era. I call all My people to take up their refuge in My Heart and My Mother’s heart. In Our Hearts they will become more and more transformed into My likeness. “The greatest source for growth in devotion to Our Hearts is the Eucharist. I wish My people to attend Mass often, daily if possible. What a great gift I have given to My people in the Eucharist! Yet many of My people are indifferent to the treasures contained in the Mass. Think of it! My people are privileged to offer the Sacrifice of the Mass together with Me! And yet how many prefer to do other things rather than attend Mass. How this attitude offends My Sacred Heart!

“I long for My people to participate in the Mass and to receive Me worthily! Think of it! I, Who am your God, long to come to you each day! In the Eucharist I come to you in My Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity. Present within you, I long to take you close to My Sacred Heart, this Heart which is truly within you. The more you allow Me to do so, the more closely I press you to this Heart. I shower you with its riches. I abundantly give you great graces which increasingly form you in My likeness. “I am Lord and Master! Please listen to My words. Pray, pray for a deeper understanding of the Mass. In union with Mary, approach Me daily in the Eucharist. I, your God, long to come to you. How much do you long to receive Me?”

Reflection: Everything in the life of the Church, and in the Christian lives of each of us individually, is centered in the Mass. Vatican II, in a few words, makes a powerful statement concerning the Church’s Liturgy—at the center of which is the Eucharistic Sacrifice: “. . . in the liturgy is the summit toward which the activity of the Church is directed; at the same time it is the fountain from which all her power flows” [The Documents of Vatican II, Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy, No.10 (American Press edition)].

Prayer: Father, give us the grace to participate in the Mass ever more profoundly. Give us the grace to live the Mass ever more dynamically. We make this petition within Jesus and Mary and in the unity of the Holy Spirit.

 

Age of the Two Hearts

Jesus:  "My beloved priest-companion, I have allowed you to experience in extraordinary fashion the riches contained in My Heart and My Mother's Heart. I desire that you tell all My people about these riches. I desire that My people consecrate themselves to My Sacred Heart and to Mary's Immaculate Heart. My people are living in the beginnings of the age of the Two Hearts.

    "After the time of the purification is completed, this new era of the Church and the world will become firmly established. This era will be characterized by the triumph of the Immaculate Heart and the reign of My Sacred Heart. All those who consecrate themselves to My Heart and to My Mother's Heart will help to establish this glorious new age. I am Lord and Master. Please listen to My urgent request. Within Our Hearts you will experience the love and security, the peace and the joy, which you all desire. I love My people with a tremendous love, and in My love I give them this message!" 

Reflection: This is the Age of the Two Hearts! The surest road to sanctity in these our times is through consecration to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. In making this consecration, and striving with God’s grace to live it as best we can each day, we are contributing to the establishment of the triumph of the Immaculate Heart and to the arrival of the reign of the Sacred Heart.

Prayer: Father, give us the grace to make and live our consecration to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. Give us the grace to live this consecration with ever-deepening faith, hope, and love. We make this petition in union with Jesus and Mary and in the unity of the Holy Spirit.


Images of the Hearts of Jesus and Mary

Jesus: “My beloved friend, tell My people that I desire them to have pictures or statues of the Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart in their homes. This will greatly help them to give honor to Our Hearts. All My churches and chapels should also have these images. I will bestow great blessings on all those who heed My request. I am your Lord and Master. Please do as I ask.”

Reflection: We all know the role pictures of loved ones play in maintaining and developing our relationships with these people. Is it strange, then, that Jesus makes the above request?

Prayer: Jesus, whenever I look at a picture or statue of the Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart, give me an increased realization of how much You and Mary love me! Give me a deepened desire to love You and my Mother in return. Remind me that You want me to renew my consecration to Your Hearts each day of my life.

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.

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!!!!

Rosary of the Two Hearts
 

Glorious Mysteries

The Resurrection

1. Matthew 28: 1-10

The empty tomb. The angel's message

After the Sabbath, and towards dawn on the first day of the week, Mary of Magdala and the other Mary went to visit the sepulchre. And suddenly there was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord, descending from heaven, came and rolled away the stone and sat on it. His face was like lightning, his robe white as snow. The guards were so shaken by fear of him that they were like dead men. But the angel spoke; and he said to the women, ‘There is no need for you to be afraid. I know you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here, for he has risen, as he said he would. Come and see the place where he lay, then go quickly and tell his disciples, "He has risen from the dead and now he is going ahead of you to Galilee; that is where you will see him." Look! I have told you.’ Filled with awe and great joy the women came quickly away from the tomb and ran to tell his disciples.

Appearance to the women

And suddenly, coming to meet them, was Jesus. ‘Greetings,’ he said. And the women came up to him and, clasping his feet, they did him homage. Then Jesus said to them, ‘Do not be afraid; go and tell my brothers that they must leave for Galilee; there they will see me.’

2. Matthew 10:27

    “What I say to you in the dark, tell in the daylight;
    what you hear in whispers, proclaim from the housetops.”

3. From Tell My People by Fr. Edward J. Carter, S.J.

                 Jesus Has Come to Give us Life

Jesus: “This is the day celebrating My Resurrection
(Easter). The day of newness of life. I am Lord and
Master. I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Tell My
people to come to Me if they wish to experience life in
abundance. I want to give all an ever greater share in the
life of My Resurrection. Without Me you cannot be
happy, nor have peace, nor have real joy. Tell My people
to surrender to Me more and more. The more they do so,
the more they will experience My love, wisdom, power,
peace, joy, happiness, mercy, and goodness. Within My
Heart My people will find these riches. I am Lord and
Master! Please listen to My words.”

4. Reflection: Through His life, death, and resurrection,
Jesus has come to give us life, and to give us this life
in abundance.
When we were baptized, we were incorporated into
Christ and His Church. When we were baptized, we
received the life of sanctifying grace. This life is a created
sharing in the life of the Trinity. Truly, we are called to
live a God-like existence according to the teaching and
example of Jesus! It is our duty and our privilege to
develop our life of grace—our Christ-life—through our
participation in the Mass, through the reception of the
sacraments, through prayer, and through all other good
works. Indeed, we are called to love God and neighbor
more and more.

5. Reflection continues:
What a glorious life has been given to us! In a spirit of
thanksgiving, and together with Mary our Mother, let us
always strive to know Christ more intimately, to love Him
more ardently, and to follow Him more closely, so that He
will always bring us to a closer union with the Father in
the unity of the Holy Spirit.

6. Prayer: Father, we are profoundly grateful for the life You
have given to us through Jesus and in the Holy Spirit.
Through the constant intercession of Mary our Mother,
we ask for the grace to always be Your worthy sons and
daughters.

7. From Tell My People by Fr. Edward J. Carter, S.J.

                    Call of the Sacred Heart

Jesus: “Tell My People that I wish them to come to My
Sacred Heart. I show My Heart as symbol of My great
love for My people. So many, however, are cold and
indifferent concerning My love for them. Consider all I
have done for My people! I suffered a brutal passion and
death for them. My Body was unmercifully scourged, My
head cruelly crowned with thorns, My hands and feet
mercilessly pierced with nails. Oh, how much I suffered
in all this—out of love for My Father and the whole
human race! Finally, My Heart was pierced with the
soldier’s lance. From My pierced Heart flowed forth
blood and water, symbols of the Eucharist and Baptism.
How much My pierced Heart still loves My people! How
I long for each to come to My Heart in a return of love!
All who do will experience My love in a special way. All
who take up their refuge within My Heart will experience
love, security, peace, joy. The world cannot give My
people these gifts. I, Who am Lord and Master, am the
One Who gives these gifts.”

8. Reflection: Jesus tells us how much He loves us and to
what lengths He went in His passion and death to show
us this great love, this love symbolized by His Heart.
To meditate often upon the passion and death of Christ
is to allow His love to more and more take hold of us.
The more we allow Jesus to embrace us with His
tremendous love for us, the more He draws us within His
pierced Heart. Within this Heart is our refuge. Here is our
source of enlightenment, of strength, of peace, joy, and
happiness.

9. Prayer: Jesus, never allow me to forget how much You
suffered out of love for me. Never allow me to forget that
You now love me with that same love which carried You
to a brutal death, that love which led to Your Heart being
pierced with a soldier’s lance.

10. Sing: Glory, Glory, Glory Lord


 

The Ascension

1. Luke 24:50-53

Then he took them out as far as the outskirts of Bethany, and raising his hands he blessed them. Now as he blessed them, he withdrew from them and was carried up to heaven. They worshipped him and then went back to Jerusalem full of joy; and they were continually in the Temple praising God.

2. From Tell My People by Fr. Edward J. Carter, S.J.

                             Trust in Jesus

Jesus: “My beloved priest-companion, tell My people to
trust Me unreservedly. I am Lord and Master. I am their
God. So many fail to trust Me as they should. I love all
My people much, much more than they love themselves.
This great love of Mine should encourage the greatest
trust. The more you realize how much a friend loves you,
the more you place your trust in the friend. I am your
perfect Friend! I love you infinitely more than your best
earthly friend. Tell My people to give Me their trust. Tell
them to say often, ‘Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place my trust
in You.’ I am Lord and Master. Please do as I request.”

3. Reflection: How can we fail to trust Jesus, this Jesus Who
has given His life for each of us? During His passion, He
knew each of us by name. Today, He calls each of us, by
name, to the refuge of His Sacred Heart. Today, He calls
each of us, by name, to a greater trust in His Heart.

4. Prayer: Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place my trust in You.

5. From Tell My People by Fr. Edward J. Carter, S.J.

                                Being loved by Jesus

Jesus: “My beloved priest-companion, I have given you a
special experience of what it means to be loved by Me. I
have drawn you, through Mary, deeply within My Heart.
There you experience a deep peace, joy, and security—all
this results from your realizing how much I love you! Tell
My people about My great love! Tell them I desire that
they come to My Heart. There they will experience the
wonders that only My Heart can give. I am Lord and
Master. I desire that all listen to My words.”

6. Reflection: We know what a glowing feeling it is to
realize that we are loved by a human person—by a friend
or by a spouse, for example. Jesus loves us much, much
more than any such person can possibly love us! Why
don’t we, then, allow ourselves constantly to be immersed
in the joy which results from realizing how much Jesus
loves us?

7. Prayer: Jesus, give me an increased realization of what it
means to be loved by You! Allow me to realize that the
more I experience Your love, the more I experience Your
peace and joy and happiness.

8. From Tell My People by Fr. Edward J. Carter, S.J.

                        On Being Thankful

Jesus: “My beloved priest-companion, because I love you
with a very special love, I have showered you with great
gifts. You have cried out to Me in joy. You have told Me
how thankful you are for My many special favors.
Allowing you to be so thankful is itself a gift I give you.
Tell My people that I want them to thank Me every day
for all the gifts I have given and continue to give them. Tell
them I want them to give themselves to Mary. In her
company I want them to approach My Sacred Heart each
day. Here I will give them ever greater gifts.
“How much I love My people! How much I long to shower
them with My love-laden gifts! Sadly, many do not want to
receive My gifts. Those who do, let them come to My
Heart, and they will be amazed at what I will do for them!
My Heart is an inexhaustible source of graces. Please, My
people, I long for you to come and draw from its riches! I
am Lord and Master. Please do as I request.”

9. Reflection: Giving thanks to God for all His gifts is one of
our great duties as children of God. We should be
continually offering thanks to God for all the gifts He has
given us and continues to give us through the Heart of
Jesus.

10. Prayer: Jesus, help me always to be a thankful person. I
make this petition in union with Mary, and I ask You to
take it to the Father in the unity of the Holy Spirit.

 

The Descent of Holy Spirit on Apostles

1. Acts 2: 1-4

When Pentecost day came round, they had all met together, when suddenly there came from heaven a sound as of a violent wind which filled the entire house in which they were sitting; and there appeared to them tongues as of fire; these separated and came to rest on the head of each of them. They were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak different languages as the Spirit gave them power to express themselves. 

2. From Tell My People by Fr. Edward J. Carter, S.J.

The Holy Spirit

Jesus: "My beloved friend, tell My people to pray daily to the Holy Spirit. They are to pray for an increase in His gifts. My people must realize that the Holy Spirit comes to transform them. The Spirit desires to transform you more and more according to My image. Those who are docile to His touch become increasingly shaped in My likeness. He performs this marvel within Mary's Immaculate Heart. The more one dwells in My Mother's Heart, the more active are the workings of the Spirit. The Spirit leads Mary to place you within My own Heart. In both Our Hearts, then, your transformation continues. The more you are formed after My own Heart, the more I lead you to the bosom of My Father. Tell My people all this. Tell them to pray daily for a greater appreciation of these wondrous gifts. I am Lord and Master. All who come to My Heart will be on fire to receive the gifts of the Spirit in ever greater measure! I love and bless My people!"

3. Reflection: The Holy Spirit is given to us to fashion us ever more according to the likeness of Jesus. And the more we are like Jesus, the more Jesus leads us to the Father. Do we, each day, pray to the Holy Spirit to be more open to His transforming influence? Do we strive each day to grow in union with Mary? The greater our union with our Mother, the spouse of the Holy Spirit, the greater is the transforming action of the Holy Spirit within us.

4. Prayer: Come, Holy Spirit, fill us with your gifts of wisdom, understanding, knowledge, counsel, fortitude, piety, and fear of the Lord. As we dwell in the Heart of Mary, Your spouse, fashion us more and more according to the Heart of Jesus.

5. From Tell My People by Fr. Edward J. Carter, S.J.

                                       Prayer

Jesus: My beloved companion, tell My people about the
great importance of prayer. Prayer plays an
indispensable role in the process of sanctification and
ultimate salvation. Let My little ones come to Me daily in
prayer. I especially want My people to pray before the
tabernacle. When they do so, I give them special graces.
The prayer of My people should be filled with love for
Me, My Father, the Holy Spirit, and My Mother. Pressed
against their Mother’s heart, and under her guidance, let
My people come to My Sacred Heart. Each day they
should take up their refuge in My Heart, and there enter
into the deepest prayer. They should put all worries and
anxieties aside and pray from the heart. I take their
prayer to the Father in the Holy Spirit. My people, I want
you to pray, pray, pray! During prayer I make you
especially aware of My great love for you. During prayer
I ask for your return of love. During prayer I especially
allow you to experience peace and joy. The crosses you
bear are no obstacle to this. In fact, when you bear your
crosses properly—that is, according to My Father’s will—
you experience increased peace and joy. My people,
listen to My words. I am Lord and Master. I love you
with the most tender love!”

6. Reflection: In the above message, Jesus reminds us of
the great importance of prayer. Our greatest prayer is our
participation in the Mass. Outside the time of Mass, Jesus
tells us how important it is to pray before the tabernacle.
The practice of prayer is extremely important for ongoing
growth in our love relationship with Jesus, the Father, the
Holy Spirit, and with Mary. It is also critical for our growth
in love of neighbor.

7. Prayer: Jesus, in union with Mary we ask for an increased
desire to pray. Give us a love for prayer which is so deep
that the spirit of prayer permeates our being all day, every
day. Jesus, we beseech You to take this petition to Your
Father in the unity of the Holy Spirit.

10. From the Lectionary

                        Pentecost Sequence

Come, Holy Spirit, come!
And from your celestial home
    Shed a ray of light divine!

Come, Father of the poor!
Come, source of all our store!
    Come, within our bosoms shine!

You, of comforters the best;
You, the soul's most welcome guest;
    Sweet refreshment here below;

In our Labor, rest most sweet;
Grateful coolness in the heat;
    Solace in the midst of woe.

O most blessed Light divine,
Shine within these hearts of yours,
    And our inmost being fill!

Where you are not, man has naught,
Nothing good in deed or thought,
    Nothing free from taint of ill!

Heal our wounds, our strength renew;
On our dryness pour your dew;
    Wash the stains of guilt away;

Bend the stubborn heart and will;
Melt the frozen, warm the chill;
    Guide the steps that go astray.

On the faithful, who adore
And confess you, evermore
    In your sev'nfold gift descend;

Give them virtue's sure reward;
Give them your salvation, Lord;
    Give them joys that never end. Amen.
Alleluia

The Assumption

1. Sing: Immaculate Mary

2. From Tell My People by Fr. Edward J. Carter, S.J.

                 Mary, Model and Teacher of Love

Mary: “My beloved priest-son, I have led you to greatly
increase your prayers and sacrifices for others. I have
often reminded you of my teaching at Fatima—that many
souls go to Hell because they have no one to pray and
make sacrifices for them. My Immaculate Heart longs
that all my little ones be saved. Tell my little ones that
they must love their neighbor through prayer, sacrifices,
and other ways, too. All should learn from me. My Heart
is symbol, not only of my great love for God, but also of
my tender love for all my little ones. Imitate my love for
God and all my children. If you love Jesus and me, this
means you also love all of God’s children. Jesus died for
all. You cannot exclude anyone from your love.

3. “My Heart is the perfect imitator of the Heart of my
Son. I will teach you how to love the Father and all
mankind after the example of Jesus. All my little ones, I
long for you to come to my Heart so I can teach you the
ways of love! I love you so much! Come to my
Immaculate Heart. Pressed against my Heart, I will hold
you in my arms. I will clothe you with my motherly and
protective mantle. As I hold you close to my Heart, I will
teach you the ways of love!”

4. Reflection: In the above message, our dear mother
tenderly reminds us that the following of Jesus is summed
up in love of God and neighbor.

5. Prayer: Mary, in your great love for us, teach us the ways
of love. Help us to surrender more and more to your
Immaculate Heart, so that you can lead us to an ever
closer union with the Heart of Jesus, the source of our
being able to love.

6. From Tell My People by Fr. Edward J. Carter, S.J.

                        Two Hearts and Sanctity

Jesus: “My beloved priest companion, I and My Mother
have given you a consuming desire to spread devotion to
Our Hearts. Tell My people about the great riches
contained in My Sacred Heart and Mary’s Immaculate
Heart! Tell My people that they live in the age of the Two
Hearts. What I and My Mother said at Fatima has been
gradually unfolding. The Fatima message is centered in
devotion to Our Hearts. The triumph of Mary’s
Immaculate Heart, foretold at Fatima, is soon to take
place. This triumph will coincide with the era of peace for
the world which My Mother foretold at Fatima. This great
new age of peace for the Church and the world will be
characterized by the triumph of the Immaculate Heart
and the reign of My Sacred Heart.

7. “Because this is the age of the Two Hearts, the quickest
and surest way to sanctity is through devotion to My
Heart and Mary’s Heart. Such devotion reaches its
highest point in consecration to Our Hearts. Within Our
Hearts My people will be clothed with great graces! Their
love for God and neighbor will deepen tremendously!
They will be fired with a holy and burning desire to love
God and neighbor in all their daily activities as guided by
the Holy Spirit. Dwelling within Our Hearts, My people
will long to help bring back an alienated world to
conform to My Father’s will.

“My friend, I and My Mother have allowed you to
experience in an extraordinary way the riches contained
in Our Hearts. Tell My people about these riches! Tell
them that I and Mary long for them to come within Our
Hearts! I am Lord and Master. Please listen to My words.
Come to Our Hearts!”

8. Reflection: Jesus tells us that we live in the age of the Two
Hearts, and that within His Heart and Mary’s Heart we
receive graces to raise us to great sanctity. What is
sanctity? It is doing God’s will out of love, and God’s will
is summed up in love of God and love of neighbor. In the
above message Jesus refers to this love of God and
neighbor. In the Gospel, Jesus expressed it in this way:

But when the Pharisees heard that he had
silenced the Sadducees they got together and, to
disconcert him, one of them put a question,
“Master, which is the greatest commandment of
the Law?” Jesus said, “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
neighbor as yourself. On these two
commandments hang the whole Law, and the
Prophets also” (Matthew 22:34-40).

Sanctity, then, is centered in love of God and neighbor.
Thus, to grow in sanctity is to grow in love of God and
neighbor. Jesus tells us in the above message that within
His Heart and Mary’s Heart we find the graces to achieve
great sanctity. Dwelling within the Two Hearts, we receive
the capacity to become tremendous lovers!

9. Prayer: Jesus and Mary, draw us within Your Hearts ever
more deeply. There, teach us the ways of sanctity, the
ways of love. Allow the burning flames of Your Hearts to
touch Our Hearts. Allow these flames to increasingly burn
away the selfishness which prevents us from loving God
and neighbor as we should. Mary, as we dwell in your
Heart, place us ever more securely within the Heart of
Jesus. Jesus, as we dwell within Your Heart, lead us ever
more closely to the Father in the Holy Spirit.

10. Sing: See the Eyes That Look at Mary

 

The Queenship of Mary

1. Revelation 12:1-2

Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman, robed with the sun, standing on the moon, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. She was pregnant, and in labour, crying aloud in the pangs of childbirth.

2. From Tell My People by Fr. Edward J. Carter, S.J.

                      Mary as Our Mediatrix

Mary: “My beloved priest-son, I have given you a
profound conviction of how necessary it is to realize I am
your motherly mediatrix with Jesus. I have been
appointed by the Triune God. Constantly remind all my
little ones of this great truth! The more my little ones give
themselves to my maternal and Immaculate Heart, the
more I bring them to the Heart of Jesus!”

3. Reflection: Some mistakenly think that Mary “gets in the
way” of their relationship with Jesus. How far from the
truth is this erroneous attitude. Mary’s role in our
salvation has been willed by God. Enough said!

4. Prayer: Lord, give us a deeper realization of Mary’s
motherly mediation. In Your great love for us, You gave
Mary to us as our mother as You hung upon the cross.
Give us the grace to entrust ourselves to Mary’s maternal
love every day, all day. We ask You to take this petition
to Your Heavenly Father in the Holy Spirit.3.reflection

5. From Tell My People by Fr. Edward J. Carter, S.J.

                          Spiritual Childhood

Mary: “My beloved priest-son, how I love to enfold you in
my arms as my little child! Enfolded in my arms in my
maternal embrace, I press you against my Immaculate
Heart. I draw you within my Heart. There, through my
maternal intercession, I clothe you with Jesus’ graces. As
you dwell in my Heart, I place you ever more deeply
within Jesus’ Heart and there the Holy Spirit fashions you
increasingly in the image of my Son. As you grow in the
likeness of Jesus, He takes you ever closer to the Father.

“Thus, as you grow in the sense of your helplessness
without God, the stronger you become in Jesus. Childlike
thus becomes strength. The smaller you become in living
out spiritual childhood, the taller you stand beside Jesus.
Weakness becomes strength, your sense of helplessness
becomes spiritual maturity!

“Tell all my children about the wonders of spiritual
childhood! Tell them to come to me and I will school them
in its ways. How I love all my children! Oh, how I love to
exercise my motherhood toward them all!”

6. Reflection: In the Gospel, Jesus speaks emphatically to us
about spiritual childhood: “At this time the disciples came
to Jesus and said, ‘Who is the greatest in the kingdom of
heaven?’ So he called a little child to him and set the child
in front of them. Then he said, ‘I tell you solemnly, unless
you change and become like little children you will never
enter the kingdom of heaven. And so, the one who makes
himself as little as this little child is the greatest in the
kingdom of heaven’” (Matthew 18:1-4).

7. Prayer: Jesus, in union with Mary, we ask for the grace
to realize the supreme importance of spiritual childhood.
We ask for the grace to grow as little children each day.
Let us realize that the smaller we become—the more we
depend on God—the greater we become in your
kingdom. We ask You, dear Jesus, to take our petition to
Your Father in the Holy Spirit.

8. From Tell My People by Fr. Edward J. Carter, S.J.

                          Pray, Pray, Pray!

Mary: “My beloved priest-son, I have taught you many
times the great importance of prayer. I have obtained for
you the gift to love to pray—not only during your set
periods of prayer, but also during the day in a manner
which permits you to perform your daily duties. I have
taught you to always be aware that all prayer should be
made in union with the Mass. Indeed, the Eucharistic
sacrifice is itself the greatest prayer. All other prayers
should be consciously united with the Mass which is
constantly being offered throughout the world. I have
taught you the great importance of praying before the
tabernacle. My Son is really present there in the
Eucharist—Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity. Special graces
are given to those who pray before the Blessed Sacrament.

“There is so much to pray for in this most critical era!
The Church and the world exist in most difficult times. I
desire that all my children pray daily for all the needs of
the Church and the world. I ask special prayers for the
conversion of sinners.

“I ask that my children pray the Rosary each day. Very
special graces are given to those who do so. During these
times of great purification, I promise special protection to
those who regularly pray the Rosary. I also promise
protection to their loved ones.

“The more one is united with me, the more I lead them
to make their prayer in the Heart of my Son, Jesus. He,
in turn, places all prayer in the bosom of the Father in the
unity of the Holy Spirit.

“My dear son, please keep reminding all my little ones
of the great importance of prayer for their own needs and
the needs of all others! Keep telling them of the great
necessity of prayer for growth in love of God and
neighbor! I love all my children with the most tender
love. I desire that all listen to my words and live them in
their daily lives!”

9. Reflection: All the great spiritual masters throughout the
history of the Church have echoed the words of Mary in
stressing the great necessity of prayer for growth in the
spiritual life. Prayer is becoming aware in a special way
of our relationship with the Triune God. In prayer we
open ourselves once again to the awareness of God’s
great love for us. In prayer, we respond to this great love
with our own love, telling God that whatever He wills for
us, we want to do with all our hearts.

All prayer, in one way or another, should be centered
in Christ. He is our Mediator with the Father. As our
Mother tells us above, we should also include her in our
prayers to Christ, Who leads us ever closer to the Father
in the unity of the Holy Spirit.

10  Prayer: Jesus, we approach Your Sacred Heart united to
the Heart of Your Mother and our mother. We ask You to
obtain for us from Your Heavenly Father the grace to
pray always, and the grace to deepen our prayer life
through increased faith, hope, and love. We make this
petition under the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

$ 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
