Words of Jesus to Members of
Shepherds of Christ Associates:

"My beloved priest-companion, I intend to use the priestly newsletter, Shepherds of Christ, and the movement, Shepherds of Christ Associates, in a powerful way for the renewal of My Church and the world.

"I will use the newsletter and the chapters of Shepherds of Christ Associates as a powerful instrument for spreading devotion to My Heart and My Mother's Heart.

"I am calling many to become members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. To all of them I will give great blessings. I will use them as instruments to help bring about the triumph of the Immaculate Heart and the reign of My Sacred Heart. I will give great graces to the members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. I will call them to be deeply united to My Heart and to Mary's Heart as I lead them ever closer to My Father in the Holy Spirit."

- Message from Jesus to Father Edward J. Carter, S.J., Founder, as given on July 31, 1994,

The Birth of the Full Ministries
of the Shepherds of Christ

    "I wish to share with you part of a message which Jesus gave us on October 13, 1994. The message tells us about the expansion of the Shepherds of Christ movement:

    'My beloved priest-companion, today I come to you with another mission. I am asking you to establish Shepherds of Christ Ministries. At My request you have already begun the priestly newsletter, "Shepherds of Christ", and the prayer chapters, Shepherds of Christ Associates...

    'I am giving you this message on this day, the 77th Anniversary of the Great Apparition at Fatima, because of the close connection between the Shepherds of Christ movement and the Fatima message. The Fatima message is centered in devotion to My Heart and My Mother's Heart, especially in consecration to Our Hearts. Shepherds of Christ Ministries is also centered in devotion to Our Hearts. I will use Shepherds of Christ Ministries as a great instrument in helping to bring about the triumph of the Immaculate Heart and the reign of My Sacred Heart. When this occurs, My Church and the world will be experiencing the great era of peace promised by My Mother at Fatima.

    'Today, then, October 13, 1994, the 77th Anniversary of the Great Apparition at Fatima, marks the birth of Shepherds of Christ Ministries. I pour forth the great love of My Sacred Heart to all. I am Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the flock.'

    "Jesus has told us that Shepherds of Christ Ministries includes: the priestly newsletter, Shepherds of Christ, Shepherds of Christ Associates prayer chapters, various publications, including books, whatever else Our Lord directs us to undertake.

    "As members of Shepherds of Christ Associates, you are an extremely important part of Shepherds of Christ Ministries. You have given great joy to the Heart of Jesus by responding to His invitation to become members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. As He draws you closer to His Heart and to His Mother's Heart as Associates members, He will fill you with an ever-increasing experience of His love, peace, and joy."

PRAYER MANUAL
 

Chapter Meeting Prayer Format

The prayer format below should be followed at chapter meetings of Shepherds of Christ Associates. All prayers, not just those said specifically for priests, should include the intention of praying for all the needs of priests the world over.

1. Hymns. Hymns may be sung at any point of the prayer part of the meeting.

2. Holy Spirit Prayer. Come, Holy Spirit, almighty Sanctifier, God of love, who filled the Virgin Mary with grace, who wonderfully changed the hearts of the apostles, who endowed all Your martyrs with miraculous courage, come and sanctify us. Enlighten our minds, strengthen our wills, purify our consciences, rectify our judgment, set our hearts on fire, and preserve us from the misfortunes of resisting Your inspirations. Amen.

3. The Rosary.

4. Salve Regina. "Hail Holy Queen, Mother of mercy, our life, our sweetness, and our hope. To you do we cry, poor banished children of Eve. To you do we send up our sighs, our mourning, our weeping in this vale of tears. Turn, then, most gracious advocate, your eyes of mercy toward us and after this, our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of your womb, Jesus, O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary."

5. The Memorare. "Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your help, or sought your intercession was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto you, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother. To you I come, before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but, in your mercy, hear and answer me. Amen."

6. Seven Hail Marys in honor of the Seven Sorrows of Mary. Mary has promised very special graces to those who do this on a daily basis.

10. Prayer for Priests. "Lord Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the Flock, we pray that in the great love and mercy of Your Sacred Heart You attend to all the needs of Your priest-shepherds throughout the world. We ask that You draw back to Your Heart all those priests who have seriously strayed from Your path, that You rekindle the desire for holiness in the hearts of those priests who have become lukewarm, and that You continue to give Your fervent priests the desire for the highest holiness. United with Your Heart and Mary's Heart, we ask that You take this petition to Your heavenly Father in the unity of the Holy Spirit. Amen"

11. Prayer for all members of the Shepherds of Christ Associates. "Dear Jesus, we ask Your special blessings on all members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. Continue to enlighten them regarding the very special privilege and responsibility you have given them as members of Your movement, Shepherds of Christ Associates. Draw them ever closer to Your Heart and to Your Mother's Heart. Allow them to more and more realize the great and special love of Your Hearts for each of them as unique individuals. Give them the grace to respond to Your love and Mary's love with an increased love of their own. As they dwell in Your Heart and Mary's Heart, abundantly care for all their needs and those of their loved ones. We make our prayer through You to the Father, in the Holy Spirit, with Mary our Mother at our side. Amen"

12. Prayer for the spiritual and financial success of the priestly newsletter. "Father, we ask Your special blessings upon the priestly newsletter, Shepherds of Christ.

13. Prayer for all members of the human family. "Heavenly Father, we ask Your blessings on all Your children the world over. Attend to all their needs.

United with our Mother Mary, we make this petition to You through Jesus and in the Holy Spirit."

14. Prayer to St. Michael and our Guardian Angels:

"St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, O prince of the heavenly hosts, by the power of God, cast into hell Satan and all the other evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen."

"Angel of God, my guardian dear, to whom God's love commits me here, ever this day be at my side, to light and guard, to rule and guide. Amen."

15. Pause for silent, personal prayer. This should last at least five minutes.

16. Act of consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

"Lord Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the flock, I consecrate myself to Your most Sacred Heart. From Your pierced Heart the Church was born, the Church You have called me, as a member of Shepherds of Christ Associates, to serve in a most special way. You reveal Your Heart as a symbol of Your love in all its aspects, including Your most special love for me, whom You have chosen as Your companion in this most important work. Help me to always love You in return. Help me to give myself entirely to You. Help me always to pour out my life in love of God and neighbor! Heart of Jesus, I place my trust in You!

"Dear Blessed Virgin Mary, I consecrate myself to your maternal and Immaculate Heart, this Heart which is symbol of your life of love. You are the Mother of my Savior. You are also my Mother. You love me with a most special love as a member of Shepherds of Christ Associates, a movement created by your Son as a powerful instrument for the renewal of the Church and the world. In a return of love, I give myself entirely to your motherly love and protection. You followed Jesus perfectly. You are His first and perfect disciple. Teach me to imitate you in the putting on of Christ. Be my motherly intercessor so that, through your Immaculate Heart, I may be guided to an ever closer union with the pierced Heart of Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the flock."

17. Daily Prayers. All members should say the Holy Spirit prayer daily and make the act of consecration daily. They should also pray the rosary each day. They are encouraged to use the other above prayers as time allows.

Glorious Mysteries

 

1. R. Jesus is appearing in here. He has His own fireworks.

Jesus says I am your Jesus Mercy.

 

The Resurrection

1. Jesus: I have called you by name. It is your response that will help My Movement to touch the hearts of so many souls. Know that I am calling you to My Heart now to listen to Me.

R. And He is really appearing. Oh the sight!

2. Jesus: I am Jesus. I am Jesus of Mercy.

3. Jesus: Help Me to reach the souls that I shed My Blood for, the souls that I love so, that are going astray this day, that may be lost for all eternity. For I have given to you the directions that you are to follow to reach many souls and I love them so. I have called you, My special apostles to reach My precious ones.

4. Jesus: Do not be afraid. Come to Me and read the letters of love I have given. For I am speaking to you to give you the strength that you need to carry out the mission, to help so many of My precious souls. Do not give into the evil one for I have called you by name. I have called you to this place. I have called you to be My soldier. I have called you to My Heart of love. For you wander so many places and nothing will fill your heart, but My Heart, consumed with love for you. Oh you, like a little child, looking at the grass for a bug or a rock, and I give to you the fires coming from My Heart of divine love.

5. Jesus: Search you no longer, for I have given to you great grace, to which you can respond or not respond. But My Heart is on fire for love of you, and I call you to spread My messages of love, that others will come to the Eucharist and be strengthened as soldiers in My army of love, to help the world to turn, to be consumed more and more, with the love that the Father wants the world to know.

6. Sing: One little light in the darkness, then there were two and were three. Three little lights in the darkness, then there were more set firmly in Me.

Jesus: I give to you the light coming from the fires of My Heart. How can you refuse these gifts, that I outpour with such generosity, to be somber and sad and to search for more, when I want you close to My Heart. My Heart is a Heart of love. Do not be angry, but forgive and love. Help one another, to be a strong body fighting in My world, the world that is cold and needs My love.

7. Sing: Come unto Me all who are weary

8. Sing: One little light in the darkness, then there were two and were three. Three little lights in the darkness, lights that were full of Me.

9. R. And from His pierced Heart the Church was born. He gives to us the sacraments. He gives to us the showering of His life. He gives to us the ability to go to the Eucharist every day. Don't you just love the Mass. Oh thank You God, for the gift of the Eucharist, for the gift of Confession, for the gift of Baptism, for the gift of Ordination and Confirmation, for the gifts that You have given in the sacraments, God. Thank You for the gifts. Thank You God. He just is so full of light. And He is with us. He is with us and He is so beautiful.

    Why should we fear when God is so close to us and with us, when He has written to us and told us so much of His love. Yet we listen to the negative conversation of the evil one, trying to trick us, because he's evil. You are so beautiful my Savior, consumed with the light and the love for men. Teach us to be holy. Help us to believe in You. Give us what we need to be able to do what you have asked us to do. Help us to spread the love of Your Heart throughout the whole, whole world. He is so beautiful. He is just magnificent. What a gift!

10. Hail Mary

 

The Ascension of Our Lord into Heaven

1. Hail Mary

2. Jesus: Consumed with light for you. I appear here that you will go forth from this place as My soldiers of light and love, that the world will know the fire of My Heart, because of you will be a soldier of My Sacred Heart.

3. Jesus: A Soldier of My love operating in obedience to the commandments of God, telling others how deeply I love them. And I want them to know the love of My Heart — the love of My Heart, for them, My children.

R. He is just so beautiful. I can't hardly even talk.

Jesus: The love of My heart for you My children, for you My beloved ones, that you will know I am the Bridegroom of your soul.

4. Sing: I come to you with greatest love I am your loving Savior etc.

5. Hail Mary
6. Hail Mary
7. Hail Mary

8. Jesus: Consumed with love for you, I give you My Heart.

9. Jesus: I outpour My grace to you My chosen ones.

10. Jesus: Do not reject Me for I love you so.

 

The Descent of the Holy Spirit

1. R. Oh my dear precious Savior, do not leave, for it is in the moments that we know You so close to us, that we are the strongest. Help us never to go from You.

I give you My Heart, Jesus says, I give you My Heart of love. Do not reject Me. Do the work I have called you to do, with love, for I am love. And I want you to be a soldier of love, in the world where hearts have turned cold, to spread My Movement to the far ends of the earth. To give and not to count the cost - for the souls that I gave My life for. How can you, to whom I have given so many blessings, not recognize the importance of My call. I love you with My Heart on fire.

R. I just can't even say anything about how He looks. How do you even say anything? To know God is with us, to know the reality of all that He has written, to know it in such depths, where words are like fly paper and yet it is His grace that is, what makes us know Him. It is His grace. It is not the things we touch and hear as much, as it is disciplining our own wills, believing in Him, choosing to look at the brightness, where His light is, rather than the darkness, that is really opposed to the reality where we know His Might, where we know the mystery, for we stay together because we love Him so much, and work together and want to know what He wants. Because we want to serve and to please Him. Where we see the magnificence of the calling that God has given, and the love for His souls, that we want to help them and know what He is telling us to do, with a thirsty heart, to know the plan of the Father, and to please Him like a little child that wants to please their Father. Not a pompousness but a desire, a desire of a child to please the divine Almighty God who created us.

This is a gift Jesus says. This building is a gift. My apparition is a gift. My messages of love a gift, the prayers I have given, a gift to which I have attached so many graces to those who pray them. I call you to obedience. I want the people to pray the prayers that I gave to Fr. Carter.

R. His face is the face of sweetness and the light that surrounds Him, is radiance.

Jesus: I am Jesus of Mercy.

2. Hail Mary

3. Sing: I come to you with greatest love, I am your loving Savior etc.

Jesus: I love you. I love you. I love you. I am Jesus who died for you. I am your Savior.

4. Jesus: I am outpouring My richest graces to the Apostles of My Sacred Heart, who say 'yes' now, so they will be strengthened and ready in the battles that you face every day. I am with you always.

R. He just has so much light and it's just hard to explain. It just doesn't stop. It doesn't stop flashing. It doesn't stop changing - this light. Now I know why they put halos around Jesus, but it isn't like that. It's much more beautiful and it's more than an halo. It doesn't end.

5. R. Oh sweet Jesus, hear our humble prayers and look upon us and mold our hearts, in the prayers that we have prayed, for the priests, and the Church and the world, and bless us please, bless us here, in China, in our new center. Bless us God, that we can have that fervor of loving You and serving you and praying and thanking you for this calling, of living by Your letters of love, of seeking Your love to fill us and letting go of the wounds of the past, where satan can work to cause discord and hardship. Oh blessed God, have mercy on this world and help them to see with the light of seven suns — the light that we know is Yours. Dispel the blindness. Open the ears. Let the eyes be filled with Your vision. Help us to reach the hierarchy and the priests. Help us to have all that we need.

    And He speaks to me — and as He speaks His mouth moves, and He says that He is with us. He is with us today. He wants us to be silent that He can speak in our hearts, that we will know how close He really is, that He is with us in this building, giving to us grace for strength, filled with such light and beauty, I just can't even express this. He is just awesome! The awesomeness of it all! The blindness of our hearts, not our eyes, but our hearts, the clogged vessels, the reaching for the senseless things. The hatred for others, where there should be love and compassion, the lack of unity where there is departments, that block the work that it be so easy to do, if we worked with one another, but we see through the tainted eyes of Adam and Eve, when God is showering us with greater vision. Oh sweet God, what a gift You have given to us all.

6. R. Do not leave us God. Stay with us forever and ever, that we may be strong in knowing You ever more, not afraid in moving from You, as we do in our fear and unloving ways toward each other. Make us strong, strong as a unit. Strong in our ways of love. Deeper in our ways of oneness with You, more fervent in our lives and everything that we do. He is so awesome! I just have never seen anything like this. Thank You God!

7. R. Let Your light shine on the whole world, that the world will see Your light and be transformed. Where there was darkness, a new morning — where there was the fear of troubled hearts in the darkness of sin — a renewal — a contrition — reparation. God - He just like so awesome! And sometimes I tire so much I cannot even look at Him because it's so strong and I don't feel that way.

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

   

The Assumption

1. R. And I've seen a darkness against the light that I never saw before that surrounded parts of Him. And it makes the light shine ever more. For as we take on His light in us, against the darkness of the world today, we are brighter than ever before like the stars at night that shine so bright because they are in the darkness of the sky. And this is a sign to us that God has given to us over these years, this gift to know this intimacy with Him, that we can be these people, given us gifts that He has not given to the greatest saints, but it is our own weakness to give into the temptations of satan, to look at the darkness, to give into the impurities of jealousy, and anger, and envy, and putting ourselves into departments when He is asking us to open ourselves up as units — units — that we can operate as a mean, strong, lighted machine - in a world of terror.

2. And He (Jesus) says that a caboose comes at the end, and yet you will not see the caboose, for I am leading the train and it's end will be endless.

3. Jesus: But you must tell the people of the message I have given and tell them to follow in the footsteps that I have put before you, that they will know that My ways are direct and steadfast, and that I am speaking here to lead them to the hills flowing with milk and honey. Why is your face so waning, My little one, when I have given to you so many signs, and you reject Me, for the empty holes of darkness.

4. Jesus: When My Heart is an open fire - full, full for you, that you will not want ever of love, for My love will consume you and you will be made whole.

5. Jesus: And you say, "Oh Jesus, the thoughts of the saints" and I say "the thoughts were likened to yours, for they struggled like you, and they chose the light, always to the darkness, and they suffered. There was opposition. There was the fighting to do the will of God. And yet they were the victors. They were the ones that chose the white robes that led them to a crown of glory."

6. Jesus: It is like a doctor, for a doctor is one who studies many years. So they will have a profession to be able to know and to operate as is called upon them. But you have been called by Me, to be open to the profession of an apostle of My Sacred Heart, that your study will be one of theology, that I have given to you in My writings, the study of knowing God, in a mystical way, in your heart consumed with love for God and others. This is the greatest of them all, My child — to be in the study of loving God and others.

7. Jesus: Not one day should go by, when you are not connected at every moment to your power source, for what happens when the plug is pulled, and the electric is needed? What happens to you when you pull the plug from My Heart and your source is in My Heart?

8. Jesus: Did you ever see what was once a lake, that was filled with beautiful water and now just an empty hole? What would you rather have, the hole or the beautiful lake to look upon for cool refreshment? How is it that you do not see the need of your own soul? Oh My children, how little you see indeed, and how satan tricks you to tell you indeed how wise and perfect you are, when with this thought you are giving up on gaining what is needed for happiness.

9. Jesus: So you look at your world and you say "Oh, my Jesus, it looks dark out there!" and I say to you "I am the light of the world." Stray not from Me or you will fall into the pits.

10. Jesus: For My lamp never goes out, nor is the source ever without light.

 

Jesus: You think in quantities of being full, of being empty, of being so far, so high, so low. My child, I will tell you now a true riddle — there is no end to My love. Glory Be

Jesus: So how can you fathom this with your minds set on quantities, for I tell you, there is no way to measure My love. And yet in your finite mind you see things this way and that way, and you judge Me by what you know, and I try to tell you more and more the secret of the mystery, and you say "Shut up Jesus, I need not that today" — for I have called you to My school many days, and you said "I know it all."

1. Jesus: In your finite minds I give you great wisdom and I outpour My grace. I want to be so one in you. And I want to fill you more and more, that you will be so absorbed to know Me ever greater. But if you reach not with your heart, if you look for facts when indeed I am a God full of Divine love for you, you will not comprehend. For it is only in My grace, will you know more and more the insight into the hidden mystery, and you have but scratched the surface.

    Scratch your heads, scratch them and you will know that you are on the surface of your scalp, but there's much more within. There is your brain and all kinds of things that help you think. Now think of scratching the surface, and on the other side it is endless. There is depth. It is incomprehensible. There is no end. It is endless.

    My child, why do you limit yourself when I want to fill you with wisdom of the mystery? Coming to me as a child is the beginning, focusing on yourself as the child of the Father, realizing that as a baby crawls and then walks, you are still in the goo-goo stage, when sometimes you close the shade and say "Out to lunch".

    Listen to Me. Let Me be the Initiator. You the soul waiting My favors. You the child of the Father. You the one that is ready to be taught and to know that it is not in the books, but it is in union with God, that you will know Me. I have given to you My letters of love, My insight into the mystery, but it comes with the life of prayer, that you will know Me more and more, as I instruct you through My writings and My words. Listen to Me. Be taught in My school and lead others to these seeds of excellency, for I have given to you a great gift. (R. He is just so beautiful.) Come to Me. Come to Me, He says, My doll.

2. Jesus: I am a Heart consumed with love for thee, but you will not even let go to meditate on this and therefore, you are left empty many times, where you would be a heart consumed with My love.

3. Sing: Come unto Me all who are Weary and find rest for you soul etc.

4. Jesus: I love you. I love you. I love you. I am Jesus, the Son of God and I love you.

5. Hail Mary
6. Hail Mary
7. Hail Mary
8. Hail Mary
9. Hail Mary
10. Hail Mary

R. And He's gone.

Hail Holy Queen

R. And we will be in China from the 10th to the 13th. Amen.

Words of Jesus to Members of
Shepherds of Christ Associates:

"My beloved priest-companion, I intend to use the priestly newsletter, Shepherds of Christ, and the movement, Shepherds of Christ Associates, in a powerful way for the renewal of My Church and the world.

"I will use the newsletter and the chapters of Shepherds of Christ Associates as a powerful instrument for spreading devotion to My Heart and My Mother's Heart.

"I am calling many to become members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. To all of them I will give great blessings. I will use them as instruments to help bring about the triumph of the Immaculate Heart and the reign of My Sacred Heart. I will give great graces to the members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. I will call them to be deeply united to My Heart and to Mary's Heart as I lead them ever closer to My Father in the Holy Spirit."

- Message from Jesus to Father Edward J. Carter, S.J., Founder, as given on July 31, 1994,
feast of Saint Ignatius Loyola, Founder of the Society of Jesus (The Jesuits)
