The Holy Father Has Much to Suffer

When Herod saw that he had been tricked by the wise men, he was infuriated, and he sent and killed all the children in and around Bethlehem who were two years old or under, according to the time that he had learned from the wise men. Then was fulfilled what had been spoken through the prophet Jeremiah:

“A voice was heard in Ramah,
wailing and loud lamentation,
Rachel weeping for her children;
she refused to be consoled, because they are no more.” Matthew 2:16-18

I write in my journal what pops in my head as if God were speaking to me. If the church were to say what I have written is wrong, then the church is correct and I am wrong. Know that as you discern what I am about to say and show from my journal.

This was written after long reflection on Saint Joseph during this, the year of Saint Joseph. The sleeping Saint Joseph has given me much comfort. A man who can sleep during anxiety inducing situations is a man who trusts God. From the sleep of Saint Joseph and through the intercession of Mary, the Holy Family was formed.

While it may feel as though Jesus himself is sleeping as our ship is being tossed in the waves, God has a larger divine plan for how we should love and live. He has given us a family to light the way.

Here is what I wrote in my journal on February 15, 2021 as I pondered all that is happening.

Beloved Lily of the Father,
She is the Immaculate Conception. Undoing the sin of Eva, instead of taking, she gave. She emptied herself. Ave.
United with us through the uncreated Immaculate Conception.
Through her the Blessing of the Father was restored.
Divine Life was able to walk in union again with mankind.
The protector of Divine Life was restored in Saint Joseph.
He is the Holy Father.
The sorrow of Saint Joseph cries out.
The Holy Father has much to suffer.
His yes restored the protection of Divine Life and at his yes he too became Immaculate.
The Family restored.
Divine Life birthed anew into the Fallen world to save you from your sins.
This Holy Fatherhood cries out for the unprotected.
He cried out for the innocent blood shed by Herod’s envy.

He cries out for the bride, the church.
He cries out for the blood of aborted children that scream for protection as the ground opens it’s mouth to receive this innocent blood.
The Assumption of the Immaculata offers a womb of mercy to baptize the innocent.

The Assumption of Saint Joseph protects the universal church from heaven.
The Protection of the Holy Father granted to each Priest so that they too can be a Holy Father, grafted into the Holy Family through her Immaculate Conception and the Cross.
The Priesthood of Protection flows from the Holy Family to the flock whom they serve.
The Holy Father has much to suffer.
Each Holy Father must consecrate his flock to her Immaculate Heart and to His Guardian Heart so that all rest in the Sacred Heart. The land is healed. All of creation becomes a Temple of the Holy Spirit within the Sacred Heart with the Blessing of the Father.
Those consecrated will rest in the Mercy of I AM.
Dominion restored.

1000 may fall at your right side, but you will be under my protection.
The insecurity and instability with frighten you, but I tell you Be Not Afraid, you have found favor with God. You are being purified and recreated. Take up your cross and become Immaculate in my mercy. My power will be made perfect in your weakness and you will see the strength of the Mystical Body and know in awe who is the head of the Body.
Trust fully and let go of what you cannot control.
Luke 4:23
– The Most Holy Trinity

    What a beautiful reflection of our (earthly) “dad”, St Joseph!
    I was delighted when Fr Calloway published the book for the Consecration of St Joseph and quickly got it, leading to my consecration to him. Then I was further delighted when Pope Francis announce the Year of St Joseph! Wow! Suddenly the “aloof” guardian of the Holy Family has been cast into the spotlight – not by choice I would imagine, but by the Holy Will of God…
    I remember reading in Msgr. Joseph Cirrincione’s book “St Joseph, Fatima, and Fatherhood” that when St Joseph gains recognition it will be a sign of the times…
    God bless your inspired writing!

    Sounds good except that bit about the assumption of Joseph. We know he died and was buried. There never has been an allegation that his body, after the resurrection, was assumed into heaven.

    By assumed could you mean something else? If you are not sure, well, it is just as Linda Noskewicz noted that sometimes things get garbled. Or, there is more to it than we can comprehend.

    When I first read this, I thought by “Holy Father” you meant the Pope. May be it does, as there seems to be levels of meaning here, St Joseph, the pope, fathers, and priests. Pope Francis is suffering from his sciatica and his knee problems.

    Thank you, Sue and God bless you and your family! Your husband would definitely be the “Holy Father” for your family when we interpret what you are saying in one sense.

    Also, if you could kindly remember my later father James Aloysius McAuley in your prayers. He went home to God at 10:55 e.s.t. on Tuesday February 9, 2021.

    • Thanks James. I always think there’s many layers when God speaks. I don’t have to be “right” I just write what I hear. And of course I am human and could hear wrong.
      I do know Father Donald Calloway’s book Consecration to Saint Joseph talks much about the Assumption of Joseph, and provided a lot of history to support that claim. But I “heard” it in prayer before I read his book. I am not claiming to know it’s true, but it just makes sense to me fro
      the aspect of the purity of the Holy Family. I think Jesus delighted in being Son of Joseph. This is an area the church allows argument.
      I am okay if I am wrong. I have been wrong a lot in my life. I will post a link to a painting Fr Calloway had commissioned after all of his research though;

      I am so sorry about your Father and will pray for his soul and for you. I am currently in the hospital with my mother who has taken a bad fall and had surgery yesterday. We’re also in a snow storm. I would appreciate your prayers also.
      May James Aloysius McAuley rest in peace and may perpetual light shine upon him.
      God Bless you James.

      James, I am praying for the repose of your father’s soul; and, Susan, I am praying for your mother.

    I read over the chapter in Father Calloway’s otherwise excellent book. Some of his sources do not say what he is alleging. An example of this would be his excerpt from a sermon of St. John XXIII – reading what Father Calloway extrapolates from this sermon, on the same token it would be a fair reading of this sermon to claim that St. John the Baptist was also be assumed into heaven and we all know that his bodily relics are out there.

    This chapter is faulty on many counts, and ultimately, if Father Calloway read the 1950 apostolic constitution Munificentissimus Deus, I think he would realize that some of what he is arguing goes against what Pius XII wrote. Like the Immaculate Conception, the Assumption is understood as a privilege unique to Mary. As pure as St. Joseph was, he was stained by original sin. He likely was pre-purified in the womb, in a mystery yet to be revealed, like St. John the Baptist and St. Jeremiah the Prophet. Father Calloway in his work is paving the way for the revelation of this mystery.

    Back in the mid 1980s, I remember reading in Soul Magazine of the Blue Army that St. Joseph’s body was incorrupt and would be found one day, in the era of peace.

    This blog is not the place to have this discussion, and, following St. James’s advice in his epistle, so I will take the time to draft a letter to Father Calloway addressing this issue.

    Thank you for indulging me on this, Sue. And, continued prayers for your mom. I understand how much helping our elderly parents purifies us of our selfishness.

    • I thank you always for your wisdom and kindness. I wouldn’t say the Assumption was unique to Mary – Scripture tells us Enoch and Elijah were also. But I see your points, and as I stated I am okay being wrong. I think oftentimes, especially when it comes to prophetic writing people get too invested in being “right” about it and this can subject one to lose faith if God worked something differently than they had expected. If I know anything I know God can say something and my “assumption” of what he means can be wrong, while what he stated to me is still right in some way I did not foresee. God has many meanings and layers. I cannot presume to know his ways. I can only surrender to His love and mercy. Whatever the case, Saint Joseph is a man for our times, whether or not he was bodily assumed. He is a gentle giant to whom I call for protection.
      I think writing to Fr Calloway is wise. Gentlemen always respectfully work these things out. And I know you to be a man of great wisdom. Thanks James. Praying for you.
