Here are a few letters that we received
in response to Father Carter's
Priestly Newsletter Book 2.


                                                             May 2002

    Dear Ones in Christ,

                                    Peace and Health to you all.

                                    I am happy to assure you all that I have
    received the precious books that you have so generously sent to
    us. I have distributed to the priests of ____ diocese free
    of charge. I only ask them to thank you all and offer a Mass
    on every First Friday of the month. The only thing we can return

                                    I pray to the good Lord to love, bless and
    reward you all for your awful charity, generosity and fraternal

                                    I am a retired bishop now. But I still go
    around to see my old and new catholics. From 18 to 28 of April,
    I went to ____ and ____ borders to baptize and confirm. The
    four priests baptized about 600 persons while I confirmed about
    450 persons. There are many more ___ pagan villages want to 
    become catholics. Please pray for them and for me too. Thank   you.

                                    With prayerful wishes and God bless you
    and your wonderful works for the greater glory of God and
    salvation of souls.

                                                Yours in our Lord and Lady,

                                                Bishop _________ 



                                                                                                    April 25, 2002

                       Dear Fr. John,

    Thank you very much for your kind letters dated April 7 and 16 last together  with the many enclosures concerning initiatives started by Fr. Edward J. Carter.

    I am pleased to inform you that the devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Immaculate Heart of Mary is widespread in this Archdiocese, as also the Divine Mercy devotion. In fact, our Archdiocese has been solemnly consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on August 15, 1997, Feast of Our Lady's Assumption and the 50th Anniversary of _____'s independence. This consecration is renewed every year in all our parishes. I do it officially in our Cathedral. Besides, all families are encouraged to consecrate themselves to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and this year we are going to make a special drive so that the image of the Sacred Heart can be enthroned in those homes where it is still not done in our Archdiocese.

    It might interest you to know that in the 80 of the 113 parishes in this Archdiocese, we have daily adoration to the Blessed Sacrament from early morning till late in the evening. The practice of having all night adoration in parishes once a month is growing steadily.

    I was deeply impressed by the photographs you sent me of the image of Our Blessed Mother in the Church of Our Lady of Clearwater. It is touching to note the tender love and concern of our Heavenly Queen.

    I recommend the Archdiocese of _____ and my pastoral ministry to your special prayers. Thank you very much in anticipation. Rest assured of a regular memento at Holy Mass.

                            With cordial regards and sincere good wishes, I remain

                                                            Yours fraternally in Corde Mariae                                                              Cardinal _________



                                                           April 29, 2002

Dear Mr. Weickert;

            Thank you for sending the books and materials by Father Edward Carter. He was a great apostle of priestly spirituality and his voice is sorely needed today.

                                                    Sincerely yours,

                                                    Cardinal ___________



23 May 2002

Dear Mr. Weickert,

    Thank you very much for the copy of Father Edward J. Carter, S.J.'s book, Shepherds of Christ, Spirituality Newsletters 2, which arrived here in Rome recently. Thank you also for your own letter of march 24th in which you offer a wonderful overview of the mission of Shepherds of Christ Ministries. Certainly the publication and distribution of the newsletters must represent a most satisfying aspect of your commitment.

    With prayers and best wishes to you, Mr. Weickert, and to all who are a part of the Shepherds of Christ Ministries family, I am,

                                          Sincerely in Our Lord,

your letter of April 7, 2002 and for the materials you enclosed written
by the last Reverend Edward J. Carter, S.J.

    Shepherds of Christ Ministries, founded by Father Carter and
now under your leadership, fulfills an important role in the Church:
praying for our priests and encouraging the prayer life of priests. The
devotion of Shepherds of Christ Ministries and Father Carter to the
Hearts of Jesus and Mary is surely an efficacious means to the
sanctification of the whole world. Please remember the priests of the
Archdiocese of _________ in your prayers.

    With the assurance of remembrance in His Eminence's

and for the repose of Father Carter's soul, may I remain

Dear Father Ed,

    Finally, finally I have someone who can

Christ newsletter. He is a 3rd year seminarian from
Florida named _______. You can write to
him at this address — he will be back from vacation
in September.

    The newsletter continues to improve — our men
love it. Many thanks to you for all your efforts.

    God love you.

                                    North American College



Dear Father Carter,

For years I have received Shepherds of Christ Newsletter; I do not know who put me on your mailing list, but I’m grateful to you both. Since I first began to receive the newsletter I have been assigned as the Director of Formation Advising for the Pontifical North American College in Rome.

I would like to know if it would be possible to make a bulk order so that our seminarians could benefit from the newsletter as well. I will make sure they are distributed to our seminarians. At present we have about 200 seminarians and student priests on our campus, all eager for good spiritual reading!

Please let me know if we can make an arrangement for the delivery of the newsletter here at the college.

Please keep our faculty and seminarians in your prayers.

Sincerely yours in Christ,

Rev. _______
Pontifical North American College



Dear Friends,

    I give my heart to Jesus and Mary with you in love. Fr. Carter, S.J. wrote the Priestly Newsletter and circulated it to over 75,000 priests on a regular basis while living. He began in 1994 and started with all of the priests in the United States right away, about 45,000. He continued this newsletter for the 6 years of his life. Since his death, we have followed his requests sending the enclosed Priestly Newsletter Book II and some of the additional Newsletters he instructed us to send to the priests, Bishops and Cardinals.

    Fr. Carter taught at Xavier University about 33 years. He authored 18 books on the spiritual life. He had a doctorate in theology. He even sent about 12 issues of the translated Newsletter to Spanish speaking priests.

    Click on for the book of Priestly Newsletters, Book II, from September, 1996 to December 1999. We have gotten so very many letters from Bishops, Archbishops, Cardinals and the Pope thanking us for the Priestly Newsletter Book II. In these letters they thanked us for our Movement, a movement of prayer, praying for the Priests, the Church and the world.

    We want to send the book to the retired Bishops. It has been packaged up and ready to go for several months, we have no money for postage.

    The book is to lead the priest into a deeper love union with Father, Son and Holy Spirit, a deeper love of their priesthood and the Church, and in consecrating their hearts to Jesus and Mary.

    Fr. Carter a Jesuit used the writings of Pope John Paul II and other popes, and the writings of the saints, the scriptures, Encyclicals of the Church, Church documents and many other theological writers in his writings in the Newsletter. Please review the enclosed book and help us get it to the retired Bishops as Fr. Carter requested we do. His mission was to pray for the priests, but primarily to send these Newsletters he published.

    Thank you for your help.

    Shepherds of Christ

P.S. We pray hourly for the priests, united with people all over the world and at our centers at 6:20 the red book enclosed, translated in 5 languages with the Imprimatur. We have operated in the past on donations. It has been difficult sending the Priestly Newsletter because of funds.

    Any additional funds you allocate to us could be used for the purpose of reaching priests, Bishops and Cardinals with the prayer manual, the Priestly Newsletter Book I or the Priestly Newsletters Fr. Carter requested be published after his death. We wish to compile these in a small book and send them to the Bishops, but do not have the funds.




November 2, 2002

Messenger:        I love the souls so very much. Today is all souls
                        day, but my life is lived to pray for the souls in
                        purgatory and on earth.

                            Oh God it is this love for souls that makes me almost
                        cry every time I pray because I want so deeply to help all
                        the souls I can - to go to heaven. Oh God, I love Thee so
                        much. I thank You for Your gifts given to me, I thank
                        You for Your life. My every breath is lived to have
                        deeper union with You here on earth and to be united to
                        You for all eternity.

                            Oh my God I love Thee so much to speak of it, to
                        be able to receive You in Holy Communion, to
                        go to Church and be with You before the
                        tabernacle, makes me cry. It is love,
                        deep love I have for Him, my joy is in
                        this, to know Him, to love Him, to
                        serve Him, I want for nothing, but to be
                        as God wants me to be helping souls and
                        growing in a deep love union with Him

                            Oh how can we see the beauty now of the 
                        fall days and the blue skies with the
                        autumn leaves pasted up against it and
                        not gasp at the greatness of God.



Messenger:         He gives us so very, very much.

                            Oh, God is real and this is truth that there is
                        a heaven.

                            Oh God please help us to learn to trust
                        you and love you more every day.

                        One of my children planned something very special
                        and we went to a place we took them when they
                        were little and when I was there I remembered
                        them ordering from the kiddie menu and my
                        heart was filled with joy from the memory, but
                        I didn't think they remembered like I did,
                        I remembered it so vividly and my heart
                        was so filled with emotion for the once little
                        children so big and some married with children
                        of their own.

                            And I write to you as Our Lord directed me for
                        God knows everything about us. God knows
                        our hearts more than we know our own heart and
                        we must pray to Him for light to know His
                        will, because just like my children couldn't
                        remember all I did (I even remembered what
                        they ordered and what they said) we just
                        don't know what God knows.

                            God said the very hairs of our head are 
                        numbered. It is even more than this, He knows
                        everything. My love grows deeper for Him every
                        day, I long for Him, my every thought is united
                        to Him, my heart longing to reach the earth
                        with the message He has delivered to me and
                        to Fr. Carter. To tell the world how very
                        deeply He wants to be united to His
                        precious souls. To tell the world how
                        we are all one family and He loves us
                        so much and wants us to honor God
                        as little children doing God's will
                        at every moment.

                            I just want to cry to write this for
                        I so deeply want to express the vision
                        of my heart and my deep emotion I feel because
                        I love God and the people of this earth
                        so much and yet I cannot express myself,
                        it is the grace He gives when someone
                        reads this, that will make the difference,
                        I write as He has asked me to do after communion
                        on this all souls day.

                            The depth of love I feel for all souls and
                        God's goodness to me I cannot express. God
                        is all good and all powerful and great,
                        merciful and ... God is love ... God is in
                        my heart every second and I feel my every
                            cell and my life is His and I long
                            to be more deeply united to Him, to know
                            Him more, to love Him more, to learn to
                            trust in Him more ——— oh

                        the mountain top — it is found in Him —

                            what a gift God gives us in the Eucharist
                            and in the priest and in the Church —

                        Oh my God, my heart longs for Thee and I

                            am so grateful — so grateful for
                            Your  gifts to me.


Mysteries of Light



Baptism of Jesus

1.    In these mysteries of light as I meditate
        on them I know more deeply the
        love of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

2.   I am so one with God. I know each person
        of the Trinity more intimately the more I
        meditate on these mysteries of light.

3.  My heart is filled with light. I love God and
        all others more.

4.  I see Jesus being baptized in the Jordan
        and I heart the voice of the Father

5.      Matthew 3: 17

... ‘This is my Son, the Beloved; my favour rests on him.’

6.  I feel I have been given special grace from
        meditating on these mysteries
        to love all 3 Persons of the
        Trinity so very deeply.

7.   I feel I know God deeper and deeper
        in my heart, especially from
        these mysteries.

8.   Mysteries of Light, oh thank you
        Pope John Paul for these gifts.

9.   From looking at the picture we put
        here I have a constant vision in
        my heart of Jesus being baptized
        in the Jordan.

10. Jesus is the Light of the world and    
        God has given us our beloved pope
        and the priests.







Marriage at Cana

1.   From meditating on this mystery,
        I live every day deeply going
        to Mary and asking her to
        intercede for me as she did at
        the Marriage of Cana.

2.   One time in Church during Mass, I
        saw a vision of Mary right in
        front of the priest.

3.   I know more how very powerful
        Mary's intercession is especially
        at Mass.


4.   From this mystery, I more deeply
        meditate on the miracles of Jesus. 

5.   I focus more on His Might. 

6.   I trust more deeply in Him.

7.   I depend on Him to help me
        to do what He wants me to
        do in this mission, Shepherds
        of Christ.

8.   I am like a baby in God's hands.

9.   I want to help the souls of the
        earth and do all I can to
        help save souls and reach them
        while I am here on earth.

10.  I give myself to Him. I am dependent
        on Him to mold me and make
        me more into what He wants me
        to be.

Genesis 1: 26-27

God said, ‘Let us make man in our own image, in the likeness of ourselves, and let them be masters of the fish of the sea, the birds of heaven, the cattle, all the wild animals and all the creatures that creep along the ground.’ 

    God created man in the image of himself, 
    in the image of God he created him, 
    male and female he created them. 





Kingdom of God

1.  We are here to love and serve our God.

2.   I focus on this so deeply about
        the Kingdom of God every time
        I meditate on this mysteries.

3.   These mysteries of light are a
        great gift God has given to
        us through Our Holy Father.

4.   Our Holy Father is a blessing to us all.

5.   Jesus is the chief Shepherd of the flock.

6.   Ezekiel 34: 11-16

    “For the Lord Yahweh says this: Look, I myself shall take care of my flock and look after it. As a shepherd looks after his flock when he is with his scattered sheep, so shall I look after my sheep. I shall rescue them from wherever they have been scattered on the day of clouds and darkness. I shall bring them back from the peoples where they are; I shall gather them back from the countries and bring them back to their own land. I shall pasture them on the mountains of Israel, in the ravines and in all the inhabited parts of the country. I shall feed them in good pasturage; the highest mountains of Israel will be their grazing ground. There they will rest in good grazing grounds; they will browse in rich pastures on the mountains of Israel. I myself shall pasture my sheep, I myself shall give them rest–declares the Lord Yahweh. I shall look for the lost one, bring back the stray, bandage the injured and make the sick strong. I shall watch over the fat and healthy. I shall be a true shepherd to them."

7.   Our Holy Father has affected
        the whole world.

8.    God acts to help us through
        the Holy Father.

9.    "Thy kingdom come, thy
            will be done on earth
            as it is in heaven."

10.  Say the Our Father with all your
        heart meditating on each word 
        and praying so deeply to the Father.

The Our Father

    Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.







1.    I see the beautiful sunset a gift God gives us.

2.    If God can make a beautiful sunset
        like that in the sky can we imagine
        the glories of heaven.

3.   I saw Him transfigured in the 
        greatest light under the image
        when we opened the Rosary
        Factory February 5, 2000.

4.    Fr. Carter had just blessed the
        rosary factory and I
        went outside and I saw Jesus
        transfigured in the Sacred Heart
        Statue under the image.

5.   The rosary is such a gift given to us.

6.   We receive light from the Holy Spirit
        when we fervently meditate on the
        mysteries of the rosary. 

7.    This was a message I received from
        Jesus that we received insight into
        the Divine Mysteries when we
        fervently meditated on the 
        Mysteries of the Rosary

8.    I feel as I have meditated on these
        mysteries of Light that the Holy Spirit
        has flooded my soul with special
        graces to understand the Holy Trinity
        more and love each Person more deeply.

9.    They truly are mysteries of light.

10.  I have grown to have a deeper
        trust in Jesus my beloved
        Savior and awe for God.






The Last Supper

1.   Judas was at the Last Supper.

2.   Jesus loved Judas so much. He made him
        one of the apostles. 

3.    Judas could have turned from his sin.

4.    God loves us so very much.

5.    Even if a person sins mortally they
        can go to confession and be forgiven.

6.   Jesus wants us to go to Holy Communion
        and be so intimately united to Him.
        (people must first be accepted in
        the Church etc. to go to Holy Communion)

7.   Jesus said — 

Matthew 26: 26-29

Now as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had said the blessing he broke it and gave it to the disciples. ‘Take it and eat,’ he said, ‘this is my body.’ Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he handed it to them saying, ‘Drink from this, all of you, for this is my blood, the blood of the covenant, poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. From now on, I tell you, I shall never again drink wine until the day I drink the new wine with you in the kingdom of my Father.’




      God loves us so much.

      Jesus comes to us today in the
        Holy Eucharist.

9.   What a gift from God —
        the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist!!!

10.  God is with us — Alleluia
