Man is seeking good for himself in
doing God's will. If we eat we are ultimately
seeking good for ourselves to fuel ones
body — to give us nutrition to help us
to do God's work. God calls us to serve
Him, when one does not supply the needed
nutrients according to the natural law
that the body needs, one is not acting
to promote the greatest good. If one
continues in abuse to the body with
regard to food, one can be causing
the blood sugar level to drop, rise which
may cause highs and lows in ones
disposition. One should always be seeking
God's will in all things. A person trying
to control another may aggressively
demand their way of another. Satan
comes in a clamor demanding his way
and we must discern what is God's will
for us and how He wants us to accomplish
this and do it — not give in to someone
who tries to demand their way when we
know it will block God's will for us.
I try to do God's will in all things, I
pray to do God's will — this may mean
protecting a very precious Movement —
Shepherds of Christ from harm and others
may not understand.
The purpose of this Movement is
to help renew the Church and the world —
We must guard the purity of the
That which is precious is guarded —
When a precious gift is given one
gives gratitude to God — this is -
acting in goodness to show gratitude
to God for gifts given.
To operate in fear of people is
not to understand the wisdom of
God. We will never please the people —
We live to please God — do His will
and all falls into line.
It is better we nip problems in
the bud, when a problem arises it
may just be beginning, as uncomfortable
as it may be for us to address it —
we do so for good — to spread truth — to
help others stay rooted in the truth.
Now think of a precious gem a woman
gets for a wedding ring. She is
thankful, she shows gratitude to
her husband in small ways — she
wears the ring of love — a precious
A precious ring signifying her
marriage she guards against theft —
she guard its. She cares for it.
Now God gave us our bodies to
help us to do His work. The world focuses
on the body in many instances as an
end in itself —
The body exists to help us do God's will —
feeding our body, exercise, sleep is
necessary for the body to be able to
function to do God's work. God gives
us a body and soul. We use our body so
we can do good. To not do what is
necessary is to deprive us from being
able to do the good God wants if we
focus on serving God, doing His will
and not on being inordinately attached
to making us look good as our goal.
Selfishness - Selflessness serving God
for His holy purpose.
Our hell on earth is because of
our rejecting God and His will for us.
When one rejects God one lives in misery.
To be authentically happy we must
believe in God. In God lies our
happiness. In embracing God's
will in all things lies our peace.
Come to me, Lord, and possess my soul. Come into my heart and permeate my soul. Help me to sit in silence with You and let You work in my heart.
I am Yours to possess. I am Yours to use. I want to be selfless and only exist in You. Help me to spoon out all that is me and be an empty vessel ready to be filled by You. Help me to die to myself and live only for You. Use me as You will. Let me never draw my attention back to myself. I only want to operate as You do, dwelling within me.
I am Yours, Lord. I want to have my life in You. I want to do the will of the Father. Give me the strength to put aside the world and let You operate my very being. Help me to act as You desire. Strengthen me against the distractions of the devil to take me from Your work.
When I worry, I have taken my focus off of You and placed it on myself. Help me not to give in to the promptings of others to change what in my heart You are making very clear to me. I worship You, I adore You and I love You. Come and dwell in me now.
Psalm 50: 1-2, 5-6, 14-15
The God of gods, Yahweh, is speaking,
from east to west he summons the earth.
From Zion, perfection of beauty, he shines forth;
Gather to me my faithful,
who sealed my covenant by sacrifice.
The heavens proclaim his saving justice,
God himself is judge. Pause
Let thanksgiving be your sacrifice to God,
fulfil the vows you make to the Most High;
then if you call to me in time of trouble
I will rescue you and you will honour me.
God is all good.
God rules the earth.
God let Your face shine on us.
God thank You for Your grace
granted to help us be
A man was called to do a job
and he said — I will do it
my way — when the foundation
had been set from the beginning —
in this century to help to lead
Renewal means a change —
God wants us to live this Spousal
union with Him.
In 1951 - 56 years ago Fr.

It is in following the plan of the
Father we will be able
to help renew the Church
and the world.

and family with the prayers
in the red prayer manual
1 Corinthians 1: 3-9
Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
I am continually thanking God about you, for the grace of God which you have been given in Christ Jesus; in him you have been richly endowed in every kind of utterance and knowledge; so firmly has witness to Christ taken root in you. And so you are not lacking in any gift as you wait for our Lord Jesus Christ to be revealed; he will continue to give you strength till the very end, so that you will be irreproachable on the Day of our Lord Jesus Christ. You can rely on God, who has called you to be partners with his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.
1 Corinthians 15: 20-28
In fact, however, Christ has been raised from the dead, as the first-fruits of all who have fallen asleep. As it was by one man that death came, so through one man has come the resurrection of the dead. Just as all die in Adam, so in Christ all will be brought to life; but all of them in their proper order: Christ the first-fruits, and next, at his coming, those who belong to him. After that will come the end, when he will hand over the kingdom to God the Father, having abolished every principality, every ruling force and power. For he is to be king until he has made his enemies his footstool, and the last of the enemies to be done away with is death, for he has put all things under his feet. But when it is said everything is subjected, this obviously cannot include the One who subjected everything to him. When everything has been subjected to him, then the Son himself will be subjected to the One who has subjected everything to him, so that God may be all in all.
Because of the weakness to seek
dominance for dominance
sake — we act rebelliously
when God has blessed us
so abundantly —
We may not even say thanks —
for priests —
for the Church
for the gifts given to us.
1 Thessalonians 5: 18
and for all things give thanks; this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus.
Are the times we spend putting
out fires more important than
prayer and deep union with God —
who has ALL the POWER.
Are we to be an example for people
Are we being brought forth more and
more in the image of Christ
who shows us His selfless
giving in life, death and now
in the Church.
We are to be Christ to others —
letting them see how to be
by our meekness and love
God has told us all through scriptures
He is faithful to His promises —
Jesus has shown us how His
"yes" means "yes"
and His "no" means "no"
God wants us to say thanks
Luke 17: 11-19
Now it happened that on the way to Jerusalem he was travelling in the borderlands of Samaria and Galilee. As he entered one of the villages, ten men suffering from a virulent skin–disease came to meet him. They stood some way off and called to him, ‘Jesus! Master! Take pity on us.’ When he saw them he said, ‘Go and show yourselves to the priests.’ Now as they were going away they were cleansed. Finding himself cured, one of them turned back praising God at the top of his voice and threw himself prostrate at the feet of Jesus and thanked him. The man was a Samaritan. This led Jesus to say, ‘Were not all ten made clean? The other nine, where are they? It seems that no one has come back to give praise to God, except this foreigner.’ And he said to the man, ‘Stand up and go on your way. Your faith has saved you.’
This was one of Fr. Carter's favorite
messages in Blue Book III.
Is Your Glass Half-Full or Half-Empty?
April 18, 1994
R. How is your day? Is your glass half-full or half-empty? This is the gauge to how you are feeling inside. Are you seeing all the blessings He is pouring out to you-your health, your food, your loved ones, all the blessings that you have each day? Or are you coming from a place of never having enough? Do you feel irritable and feel that nothing is right, that everything is wrong?
Is the glass half-full or is it half-empty? Do you look for things that are right in your world or do you look for things that are wrong? Do you know that God gives to you exactly what you need and that it is in your acceptance of these things that you grow in your relationship with Him?
Is the glass half-full or half-empty? Do I look at the world and see the love of God in my brothers? Do I look at the world and see the world as not giving to me?
God has all you need. God provides us with our needs. The world is hurting. The world is not that by which we are filled. The world cries from its own pain. How can the world fill us?
We crave the love of God. Our souls can only be satisfied by the love of God. When we see the world as a place that needs God's love, we come to the world with a full glass.
How is your glass today? Is it half-full or half-empty? If you go to our beloved Jesus, He fills you with His love. His love is emitted from your very being. When you spend time with Him and remain fixed in Him, there is peace in His love.
The biggest contribution you can give to yourself and this world is to busy yourself with your relationship with Jesus. Be an empty vessel (glass) ready to be filled by His love.

The saints teach us about the truth.
I would like to see one priest
from the pulpit say
"I am in love"
"I am in love with Jesus"
How will it be when we have
passed from this life and
God says —
I called you to be authentically
true to your word.
I called you to holiness —
You made Me chase you
And I pursued you in love —
You talked about Me to others
so you would get glory
for your crown —
My crown was a crown of thorns
My heart was full of love
I did the Father's will to My
death on the cross
You gave Me nothing I really asked
of you without a fight and
I bled for all the times
you gave into the devil and wasted
precious time in games, chasing,
The more I gave — the more you
rebelled and where I wanted
stability as a model — you
showed the focus on
you gave into satan —
I have watched the brown outs
while I pursued you and
you made Me beg while
you played games - trying to
work on your inordinate attachments
and selfish focus
My souls I died for are dropping
into hell like rain —
you call yourself a model
living the promise you made to me
Your god is winning others
and ignoring Me
Do you know hell —
It is full of souls that
know hatred forever —
I have given you the work to help
billions of souls —
You smite Me —
I want you to help Me by
doing the prayers etc.
