Messenger:        The wind blows, the night breeze settles
                      around us and we sit and feel the beauty of
                      God's earth.

Jesus speaks:        Peace, I come to bring you peace and joy
                        in your hearts. My love for you is so very
                        great, you will never comprehend how deep My
                        love is for you.

                            I painted a field of beauty for you, I
                        gave you soft breezes to blow on your cheeks,
                        I gave  you a gorgeous tree of beauty, beautiful
                        green, shade from the scorching sun, protection
                        from the wind and the rain, I gave you the light
                        of day, the stars of a beautiful night, the sky
                        of beautiful shades of blue and filled with
                        soft clouds and the velvet black of a cold
                        brisk evening, I gave you my beauty to
                        surround you, never the same, but ever
                        changing every moment of the day. I give you
                        Our Lady of Clearwater and My image, so very
                        beautiful to look at, and it changes every
                        moment of the day. Oh I give you little babies
                        to care for, the love of husband and wife and
                        you watch this grow. I give you life and I give
                        you beauty and I give you Myself. I am your
                        God and I love you so very much.

Jesus speaks:        Oh My earth, I give you so many gifts. On
                        a cool evening you can come to My Churches
                        and be with Me, some can go to Mass and
                        receive Me, I have called you to Church, if
                        you can come to pray at 6:20 every day.
                        I like you to come in the evening, to quiet
                        your mind and to be with Me to pray for
                        your priests, the Church and the world.

                            Oh My people when the News blares all over
                        the earth its sordid tales, My people gather
                        and deeply come to My Heart, united as one
                        and pray for the priests, the Church and
                        the world. In all the angry display of
                        sordid deeds comes the whispers of your
                        prayers, comforting My Heart and worshipping
                        Me as you pray the litanies and meditate on
                        the Rosary and come so deeply into My Heart.
                        Oh such joy to your God, such joy to your
                        Mother and your are all united to those who
                        pray under our images in Florida. We appeared
                        in Florida, USA because it was the perfect
                        place. Oh land of sunny skies and beauteous
                        breezes over blue waters, a Lady came,
                        your Mother, she appeared a Lady Clothed
                        with the Sun for her children she loves so much -
                        from this place your Mother and I call you to
                        pray these 6:20 prayers every evening -
                        while others pray in Churches before the Blessed
                        Sacrament and others pray in their homes as
                        families and friends - all are united in
                        different languages, and I hear a chorus of
                        prayer as I so directed Fr. Carter to help bring
                        about the Reign of My Sacred Heart and the
                        triumph of Mary's Immaculate Heart -
                        Oh beauteous earth, that you would unite, in
                        all the sordid ways of the earth, I hear your
                        prayer united, different voices praising Me
                        and softly loving your Mother as you pray
                        the litanies and the prayers, the rosary -
                        all of you are united in one voice and
                        My Mother spreads her blanket of peace over her
                        children as night settles in in Florida and part
                        of the world.

                            We come with our love and you honor Our
                        Two Hearts of love - you meditate on the
                        Mysteries of the Rosary, a child's prayer and
                        you please your heavenly Father daily as
                        evening settles in and He outpours His
                        Mercy to His children because of your
                        heartfelt prayers and your obedience to
                        Me who has given you these prayers and asked
                        you to pray at this time to honor My Sacred
                        Heart and the Heart of Your Mother.

                            I tell you what your God desires, it
                        is children of the earth, gathered in one
                        voice, honoring and praising their God, praying
                        for peace and healing and unity, praying for
                        the gifts of the Holy Spirit, praying for oneness,
                        Do not overlook how much this pray pleases your

                            When the night draws near and you unite at
                        6:20, think of all the voices praying, begging for
                        mercy, honoring the Sacred Heart and Immaculate
                        Heart, praying for the priests, the Church and
                        the world. Mary has appeared daily at the
                        time of 6:30 from July 5, 1994 - September 5, 1995
                        in preparation for this time when you would
                        all gather united in your hearts and pray
                        at 6:20, some praying beneath our images.
                        The 5ths and December 17 are special days of
                        prayer when we have allowed our images
                        to be so very beautiful, that the people of the
                        earth would know how pleased we are that
                        you have obeyed My wishes for you to pray
                        this way.

                        calling you to pray this way.


February 23, 1999, 5:30 a.m.

Jesus speaks:  I ask My Shepherds of Christ apostles and as many as possible to pray in this way for this novena praying for the special coming of the Holy Spirit.

    Think of yourselves as My spouse dwelling in Our pure and holy Hearts united to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.


    I ask you to gather at 6:20 every evening.

    I ask you to recognize yourself as a body and realize others are praying with you at 6:20 p.m.

    I STRESS it is important for as many as possible to pray at 6:20 p.m. If you cannot pray at 6:20 p.m., I ask you to stop if possible and reflect as I will indicate later, but as many as possible are asked to pray. You are a body praying. You must feel this unity praying to your God as the people of My Movement, the Church and the world. You are gathered in one place, the world dwelling in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

    Begin the novena February 25, 1999, this will continue until I tell you to stop.

    It will be important to notify as many as possible by phone of the beginning of this novena. If you have not been notified you must begin whenever you become aware of this novena.

Picture of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

A City on a Hill Shines to the World

February 23, 1994 5:30 a.m.

Jesus speaks:  I am the light of the world. A city on a hill will shine to the world. You at the Center will be this city when you are filled to the brim with the love of Jesus. What power, what might, to have each person a personal spouse of Jesus Christ! This is the light to the darkened world. The love of Jesus radiates from the very being of those who love Him. What light when all together are lifted by His love abounding deep within their breasts!

I am the Way, the Truth and the Life. My life is the life inside that cannot be contained. It is bursting and budding forth. My life is the real life. To possess the life of Christ within your breast! Such power! I am the city set on a hill that will stand united and shine to this world. You at this Center will be this city. You will be the true Center that places the mark on this world.

The love of Christ, abounding deep within the breasts of all, will be the power and the might. Pray the Prayer for Union with Jesus. I will operate in the hearts of all there and minister to My sick world. I am the Heart of Jesus. I am on fire with love of each and every soul. When My love is found in all the hearts there, the light of God will shine to this world!

You are the city, set on a hill, that shines to the darkened world. I will light the world with the love of Jesus that shines in the hearts of those who are fed there. My light is so bright. My power is endless. You are the light to the dark world. You contain the mighty medicine to bring My sick ones to Me. You will bring so many back to Me and My intense love, burning so brightly for all!

I am the power. I am the might. He who abides in Me will have the light of life. I give Myself to you that you will live. You will radiate My presence from your very being. My light is the brightest light. I will live in the hearts of all who come to you for their feeding. Enkindle in them the love for My most Sacred Heart. It is on fire for love of you. It cannot be contained. It will live in all hearts who come to you to be fed.

You are the key to enkindle this burning love of Jesus in the hearts of so many. Many will know Jesus through your love of Me. Read these letters every day for I am truly speaking to you here. I love each child so dearly and want to have an intimate union with that child. Teach all about the burning love of Jesus. Read My messages with your heart on fire so you can tell all of My ardent love for them.

I long to be close to them. I am a person. I am God, on fire for love of My people. Bring all to the ardent love of Jesus. Mary is by My side constantly. Where I am, she is there. She wants all to be led to My ardent, longing love. Teach all about My love. Fill them so they are overflowing in their hearts. This is the mighty medicine. It is My letter of intense, ardent love for My people.

I am truly here, little ones. I am Jesus, Son of the Living God. I will live strongly in the hearts of all who come to you. You will be the key. Focus on your intense love of Me. Read My letters as a cookbook for intimacy with Me. My love waits for each person and I tell you here how to be close to Me. I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus on fire for love of you. I am longing for you to come and be with Me in silence. I will give you all you need.

I am the Alpha. I am the Omega. I am your all. I am God, one, true and magnificent, and I come to you with ardent love in Holy Communion and in the tabernacle. I am present, Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity. I am waiting. Our love affair waits and it depends on you. I am there and I am waiting. You keep us apart.

Tell them how I long for them and have all they need. The love of Christ will light their city. You will stand as the lighted city in darkness. My love will be that by which you light this dark world. Oh, such power, such might! The love of God will reign in the hearts of all you touch. You are My vessel to draw this world to the love of Jesus.

Read and study My letters and be taught about My ardent love. I am Jesus Christ and I am teaching you about My love on fire for all. Come and be powered by the hand of God. My love will rock the world off its rocker when it reigns in the hearts of those who come to you. I love you so! You are My beloved. I will use you to light My dark world. You will shine as candles in the darkest night and you will be the instruments I use to light their wicks. I am God and I love them so dearly!

This is My love for all. Power and might will shine forth on the land. I am the brightest light. Look into the light for the light. Look into the arms of Jesus. I will light this world through you. Alleluia. And the angels sang and the choirs of heaven were heard for the earth proclaimed the Love of Jesus. Alleluia

Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus

My dear fellow Associate Members,

Jesus is calling special apostles to join a new division of the Shepherds of Christ Movement. Here is a message from Jesus given to Father Carter:

    My beloved priest-companion, I am requesting that a new prayer movement be started under the direction of Shepherds of Christ Ministries. I am asking for volunteers who are willing to pray before the Blessed Sacrament for one hour, twice-weekly. Members of the Shepherds of Christ prayer chapters, as well as others, are to be invited to join this movement.

    These apostles are to pray for the intentions I am giving you. For part of the hour they are to use the prayers of the Shepherds of Christ Associates Handbook. They may spend the rest of the hour as they so choose.

    I will use this new prayer movement within My Shepherds of Christ Ministries in a powerful way to help in the renewal of My Church and the world. I will give great graces to those who join this movement. The name, Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus, is to be given to this movement.

    I am inviting My beloved Rita Ring to be coordinator for this activity.

    I pour out the great love of My Sacred Heart to all. I am Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the flock.

    This is indeed a special calling for us to unite in one heart with His Eucharistic Heart and pray for the following intentions:

  1. For the spread of the devotion to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary culminating in the reign of the Sacred Heart and the triumph of the Immaculate Heart.
  2. For the Pope.
  3. For all bishops of the world.
  4. For all priests.
  5. For all sisters and brothers in the religious life.
  6. For all members of the Shepherds of Christ Movement, and for the spread of this movement to the world.
  7. For all members of the Catholic Church.
  8. For all members of the human family.
  9. For all souls in purgatory.

Excerpts from The Spirituality of Fatima

by Father Carter, S.J.

Before receiving the six apparitions of Our Lady, May through October of 1917, the three Fatima visionaries were visited by an angel on three different occasions during the preceding year. He appeared to them in the spring, summer, and fall. Lucia (now Sr. Lucia) describes the springtime apparition of the angel:

On reaching us, he said: “Do not be afraid! I am the Angel of Peace. Pray with me.”

Kneeling on the ground, he bowed down until his forehead touched the ground and made us repeat these words three times: “My God, I believe, I adore, I hope and I love You! I ask pardon of You for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not hope and do not love You.

Then, rising he said: “Pray thus. The Hearts of Jesus and Mary are attentive to the voice of your supplications.

His words engraved themselves so deeply on our minds that we could never forget them. 3

During the summer of 1916, the angel again appeared to the three visionaries. He said to them:

Pray! Pray a great deal. The Hearts of Jesus and Mary have merciful designs on you. Offer prayers and sacrifices continually to the Most High. Make everything you do a sacrifice, and offer it as an act of reparation for the sins by which God is offended, and as a petition for the conversion of sinners. Bring peace to our country in this way.... I am the Guardian Angel of Portugal. Accept and bear with submission all the sufferings the Lord will send you. 4

In the fall of the same year, the angel visited the visionaries a final time:

The angel came...bearing a golden chalice in one hand and a Host above it in the other. The amazed children noticed that drops of blood were falling from the Host into the chalice. Presently, the angel left both suspended in mid-air and prostrated himself on the ground, saying this beautiful prayer: “Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, I adore You profoundly. I offer You the most precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ, present in all tabernacles of the world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges, and indifference by which He is offended. By the infinite merits of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and [the intercession of] the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg of Thee the conversion of poor sinners. 5

Sr. Lucia relates how the angel gave them Communion:

Then, rising, he took the chalice and the Host in his hand. He gave the Sacred Host to me and shared the Blood from the chalice between Jacinta and Francisco, saying as he did so:

Take and drink the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, horribly outraged by ungrateful men! Make reparation for their crimes and console your God.” 6


May 13, 1917

May 13, 1917, marks the first appearance of Our Lady of Fatima to Lucia, Jacinta, and Francisco. On this occasion, she said to the visionaries:

    "Do not be afraid, I will do you no harm..... I am from Heaven.

    "I have come to ask you to come here for six months in succession, on the 13th day, at the same hour. Later on, I will tell you who I am and what I want

    "Are you willing to offer yourselves to God and bear all the sufferings He wills to send you, as an act of reparation for the sins by which He is offended, and in supplication for the conversion of sinners?

    "Pray the Rosary every day in order to obtain peace for the world, and the end of the war." (8)


June 13, 1917

    "God wishes you to remain in the world for some time because He wants to use you to establish in the world the devotion to my Immaculate Heart. I promise salvation to those who embrace it, and their souls will be loved by God as flowers placed by myself to adorn His throne." (10)


July 13, 1917

    "During her appearance in July, Our Lady, in answer to Lucia's plea, promised that in October she would work a great miracle so that all might believe and know who she was. Again, the Mother of God told the children to sacrifice themselves for sinners and to say many times, especially when making a sacrifice, this prayer: "O my Jesus, I offer this for love of Thee, for the conversion of poor sinners, and in reparation for all the sins committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary." (11)

    "During this same July apparition, Mary showed the three children a vision of Hell. She told them:

    "You have seen Hell, where the souls of poor sinners go. To save them, God wishes to establish, in the world, devotion to my Immaculate Heart. If people do what I tell you, many souls will be saved and there will be peace.

    "The war (World War I, then raging) is going to end. But if people do not stop offending God, another and worse one will begin in the reign of Pius XI. When you shall see a night illuminated by an unknown light [January 2, 1938], know that this is the great sign that God gives you that He is going to punish the world for its many crimes by means of war, hunger, and persecution of the Church and the Holy Father. (12)

    "To prevent this, I shall come to ask for the consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart and the Communion of Reparation on the five first Saturdays. If my requests are granted, Russia will be converted and there will be peace. If not, she will scatter her errors throughout the world, provoking wars and persecutions of the Church. The good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer, and various nations will be destroyed....

    "But in the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph, the Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, Russia will be converted, and a certain period of peace will be granted to the world." (13)


August 19, 1917

    She told them she was greatly displeased by the action of the mayor. As a result, the miracle promised for October would not be as impressive as originally planned. (15)


September 13, 1917

    More than 30,000 people were present in September, and saw a shower of mysterious white petals fall to within 10 feet of the ground before dissolving into the air. Many also saw the globe of light bearing the Lady come to rest atop the tree, and the branches bend as though someone were standing on them. Later, they saw the cloud depart into the east, from whence it had come.(16)


October 13, 1917

    I am the Lady of the Rosary. I have come to warn the faithful to amend their lives and to ask pardon for their sins. They must not offend Our Lord any more, for He is already too grievously offended by the sins of men. People must say the Rosary. Let them continue saying it every day.(17)

    While the people in attendance were beholding the great Miracle of the Sun, the three young visionaries, and they alone, were privileged to see striking visions in the heavens:

    As Our Lady had promised, St. Joseph had come with the Holy Family and had blessed the world. Then, Our Lady appeared as the Mother of Sorrows, accompanied by her Divine Son, Who also blessed the world. Finally, Lucy had seen the Blessed Virgin, dressed in the brown robes of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, crowned as Queen of Heaven and Earth, holding a brown Scapular in her hand, with her infant Son upon her knee. However, in none of these visions had any of the figures spoken to the children. (18)

    Besides the messages associated with the major Fatima apparitions, there were other revelations given by Our Lady. Before Jacinta died, she told of other messages given her (during her illness) by Mary:

    More souls go to Hell because of sins of the flesh than for any other reason.

    Certain fashions will be introduced that will offend Our Lord very much.

    Many marriages are not good; they do not please Our Lord and are not of God.

    Priests must be pure, very pure. They should not busy themselves with anything except what concerns the Church and souls. The disobedience of priests, to their superiors and to the Holy Father, is very displeasing to Our Lord.

    I can no longer restrain the hand of my Divine Son from striking the world with just punishments for its many crimes.

    If the government of a country leaves the Church in peace and gives liberty to our Holy Religion, it will be blessed by God.

    Tell everybody that God gives graces through the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Tell them to ask grace from her, and that the Heart of Jesus wishes to be venerated together with the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Ask them to plead for peace from the Immaculate Heart of Mary, for the Lord has confided the peace of the world to her. (19)

Holy Spirit Novena


Opening Prayer

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Dear Father, we come to You in the name of Jesus, in union with Him in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, in the Holy Spirit. We come to You united to the Child Jesus of Good Health and the Infant of Prague. We come to You in the perfect, sinless heart of Our Mother Mary, asking her powerful intercession, uniting ourselves to her holy tears. We come to You united to all the angels and saints, and the souls in purgatory.

Prayer for Holy Spirit

We pray for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit on us, to be baptized by the Holy Spirit, that He will descend mightily on us as He did on the Apostles at Pentecost. That the Holy Spirit will transform us from fear to fearlessness and that He will give us courage to do all the Father is asking of us to help bring about the Reign of the Sacred Heart and the triumph of Mary's Immaculate Heart. We pray for the Holy Spirit to descend mightily on the Jesuits and the Poor Clares on the Shepherds of Christ leaders and members and on the whole Body of Christ and the world.

Protection by the Blood of Jesus

We pray that the Blood of Jesus will be spread on us, everyone in our families, and the Shepherds of Christ Movement, that we will be able to move steadfastly ahead and be protected from the evil one.


We pray for healing in body, mind, and soul and generational healing in ourselves, in all members in our families, and in all members of the Shepherds of Christ Movement, the Jesuit Community, the Poor Clares, the Body of Christ, and the world.

Prayer for Strength and Light

We adore You, oh Holy Spirit. Give us strength, give us light, console us. We give ourselves entirely to You. Oh Spirit of light and grace, we want to only do the will of the Father. Enlighten us that we may live always in the Father's will.

Eternal Spirit fill us with Your Divine Wisdom that we may comprehend more fully insight into Your Divine Mysteries.

Give us lights, Oh Holy Spirit that we may know God. Work within the heart, the spiritual womb of the Virgin Mary, to form us more and more into the image of Jesus.

Prayer to Be One with God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit

We long for You, Oh Spirit of Light, we long to know God, we want to be one with Him, our Divine God. We want to be one with the Father, know Him as a Person most intimately. We want to know the beloved One, the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and live and dwell in Him at all times, every moment of our lives. We want to be one with You, Oh Spirit of Light, that You move in us in our every breath.

Prayer to Be One in Jesus

Let us experience life in the Sacred Heart of Jesus, so we can say as Saint Paul, "I have been crucified with Christ and yet I am alive; yet it is no longer I, but Christ living in me...." Let us live, united to the Mass, all through the day being one in Him. Let us be able to love and know in this elevated state of oneness with our God. We long for Thee, oh beauteous God, we love You, we love You, we love You. We praise You, worship You, honor You, adore You, and thank You, our beloved God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Prayer to Dwell in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary

We seek to be one in God, to live and dwell in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, our little heaven on earth, to experience life in the all perfect, pure, sinless heart of our Mother. We want the Holy Spirit to move in us and to be united to Jesus as the Bridegroom of our souls and be a most perfect sacrifice offered to the Father at every moment as we unite in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass around the world to help in the salvation of souls.

Prayer for the Holy Spirit and His Gifts

Come Holy Spirit, come, come into our hearts, inflame all people with the fire of Your love.

Leader: Send forth Your Spirit and all will be reborn.
All:  And You will renew the face of the earth.

We pray for the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit, we ask for perfection in our souls to make us holy, holy souls likened to God.

Dear Holy Spirit, we give ourselves to You soul and body. We ask You to give us the Spirit of Wisdom, Understanding, Counsel, Fortitude, Knowledge, Piety, and Fear of the Lord.

Prayer for the Word Alive in Our Hearts

We know, dear Holy Spirit, the Word in His human nature was brought forth within the womb of the woman. We pray that His word will be brought forth in our hearts as He lives and dwells in us. We want the incarnation to go on in our lives. Dear Holy Spirit, work in us.

Little Prayers to the Holy Spirit

Dear Holy Spirit, help us not to be ignorant or indifferent or weak, help us to be strong with the love of God.

Dear Holy Spirit, please pray for our needs for us.

Dear Holy Spirit, help us to respect God and to avoid sin. Help us to live in the Father's will.

Dear Holy Spirit, help us to keep Your commandments and to respect authority. Help us to love all things as You will us to love them. Help us to want to pray and always serve God with the greatest love. Help us to know the truth. Help us to have the gift of faith, hope, and love. Help us to know what is right and what is wrong.

A Prayer for Intimacy with the Lamb, the Bridegroom of the Soul

Oh Lamb of God, Who take away the sins of the world, come and act on my soul most intimately. I surrender myself, as I ask for the grace to let go, to just be as I exist in You and You act most intimately on my soul. You are the Initiator. I am the soul waiting Your favors as You act in me. I love You. I adore You. I worship You. Come and possess my soul with Your Divine Grace, as I experience You most intimately.


First Period
Meditations Nine Days

  1. Romans 8:14-17

    All who are guided by the Spirit of God are sons of God; for what you received was not the spirit of slavery to bring you back into fear; you received the Spirit of adoption, enabling us to cry out, 'Abba, Father!' The Spirit himself joins with our spirit to bear witness that we are children of God. And if we are children, then we are heirs, heirs of God and joint-heirs with Christ, provided that we share his suffering, so as to share his glory.
  2. Romans 8:5-9

    Those who are living by their natural inclinations have their minds on the things human nature desires; those who live in the Spirit have their minds on spiritual things. And human nature has nothing to look forward to but death, while the Spirit looks forward to life and peace, because the outlook of disordered human nature is opposed to God, since it does not submit to God's Law, and indeed it cannot, and those who live by their natural inclinations can never be pleasing to God. You, however, live not by your natural inclinations, but by the Spirit, since the Spirit of God has made a home in you. Indeed, anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him.
  3. 1 John 4:12-16

    No one has ever seen God, but as long as we love one another God remains in us and his love comes to its perfection in us. This is the proof that we remain in him and he in us, that he has given us a share in his Spirit. We ourselves have seen and testify that the Father sent his Son as Saviour of the world. Anyone who acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God remains in him and he in God. We have recognised for ourselves, and put our faith in, the love God has for us. God is love, and whoever remains in love remains in God and God in him.
  4. 1 John 4:17-21

    Love comes to its perfection in us when we can face the Day of Judgement fearlessly, because even in this world we have become as he is. In love there is no room for fear, but perfect love drives out fear, because fear implies punishment and no one who is afraid has come to perfection in love. Let us love, then, because he first loved us. Anyone who says 'I love God' and hates his brother, is a liar, since whoever does not love the brother whom he can see cannot love God whom he has not seen. Indeed this is the commandment we have received from him, that whoever loves God, must also love his brother.
  5. 1 John 4:7-11

    My dear friends, let us love one another, since love is from God and everyone who loves is a child of God and knows God. Whoever fails to love does not know God, because God is love. This is the revelation of God's love for us, that God sent his only Son into the world that we might have life through him. Love consists in this: it is not we who loved God, but God loved us and sent his Son to expiate our sins. My dear friends, if God loved us so much, we too should love one another.
  6. Acts of the Apostles 1:1-5

    In my earlier work, Theophilus, I dealt with everything Jesus had done and taught from the beginning until the day he gave his instructions to the apostles he had chosen through the Holy Spirit, and was taken up to heaven. He had shown himself alive to them after his Passion by many demonstrations: for forty days he had continued to appear to them and tell them about the kingdom of God. While at table with them, he had told them not to leave Jerusalem, but to wait there for what the Father had promised. 'It is', he had said, 'what you have heard me speak about: John baptised with water but, not many days from now, you are going to be baptised with the Holy Spirit.'
  7. Acts of the Apostles 1:6-9

    Now having met together, they asked him, 'Lord, has the time come for you to restore the kingdom to Israel?' He replied, 'It is not for you to know times or dates that the Father has decided by his own authority, but you will receive the power of the Holy Spirit which will come on you, and then you will be my witnesses not only in Jerusalem but throughout Judaea and Samaria, and indeed to earth's remotest end.'

    As he said this he was lifted up while they looked on, and a cloud took him from their sight.
  8. Acts of the Apostles 1:12-14

    So from the Mount of Olives, as it is called, they went back to Jerusalem, a short distance away, no more than a Sabbath walk; and when they reached the city they went to the upper room where they were staying; there were Peter and John, James and Andrew, Philip and Thomas, Bartholomew and Matthew, James son of Alphaeus and Simon the Zealot, and Jude son of James. With one heart all these joined constantly in prayer, together with some women, including Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brothers.
  9. Acts of the Apostles 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.


Second Period
Meditations Nine Days

  1. John 14:21-31

    Whoever holds to my commandments and keeps them is the one who loves me; and whoever loves me will be loved by my Father, and I shall love him and reveal myself to him.'

    Judas-not Judas Iscariot-said to him, 'Lord, what has happened, that you intend to show yourself to us and not to the world?' Jesus replied:

    Anyone who loves me will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we shall come to him and make a home in him. Anyone who does not love me does not keep my words. And the word that you hear is not my own: it is the word of the Father who sent me. I have said these things to you while still with you; but the Paraclete, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you everything and remind you of all I have said to you. Peace I bequeath to you, my own peace I give you, a peace which the world cannot give, this is my gift to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid. You heard me say: I am going away and shall return. If you loved me you would be glad that I am going to the Father, for the Father is greater than I. I have told you this now, before it happens, so that when it does happen you may believe. I shall not talk to you much longer, because the prince of this world is on his way. He has no power over me, but the world must recognise that I love the Father and that I act just as the Father commanded. Come now, let us go.
  2. John 17:11-26

    I am no longer in the world, but they are in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, keep those you have given me true to your name, so that they may be one like us. While I was with them, I kept those you had given me true to your name. I have watched over them and not one is lost except one who was destined to be lost, and this was to fulfil the scriptures. But now I am coming to you and I say these things in the world to share my joy with them to the full. I passed your word on to them, and the world hated them, because they belong to the world no more than I belong to the world. I am not asking you to remove them from the world, but to protect them from the Evil One. They do not belong to the world any more than I belong to the world. Consecrate them in the truth; your word is truth. As you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world, and for their sake I consecrate myself so that they too may be consecrated in truth. I pray not only for these but also for those who through their teaching will come to believe in me. May they all be one, just as, Father, you are in me and I am in you, so that they also may be in us, so that the world may believe it was you who sent me. I have given them the glory you gave to me, that they may be one as we are one. With me in them and you in me, may they be so perfected in unity that the world will recognise that it was you who sent me and that you have loved them as you have loved me.

    Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am, so that they may always see my glory which you have given me because you loved me before the foundation of the world. Father, Upright One, the world has not known you, but I have known you, and these have known that you have sent me. I have made your name known to them and will continue to make it known, so that the love with which you loved me may be in them, and so that I may be in them.
  3. I 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.
  4. Revelation 3:1-3,12,16-19

    'Write to the angel of the church in Sardis and say, "Here is the message of the one who holds the seven spirits of God and the seven stars: I know about your behaviour: how you are reputed to be alive and yet are dead. Wake up; put some resolve into what little vigour you have left: it is dying fast. So far I have failed to notice anything in your behaviour that my God could possibly call perfect; remember how you first heard the message. Hold on to that. Repent! If you do not wake up, I shall come to you like a thief, and you will have no idea at what hour I shall come upon you.

    Anyone who proves victorious I will make into a pillar in the sanctuary of my God, and it will stay there for ever; I will inscribe on it the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem which is coming down from my God in heaven, and my own new name as well.

    '...but since you are neither hot nor cold, but only lukewarm, I will spit you out of my mouth. You say to yourself: I am rich, I have made a fortune and have everything I want, never realising that you are wretchedly and pitiably poor, and blind and naked too. I warn you, buy from me the gold that has been tested in the fire to make you truly rich, and white robes to clothe you and hide your shameful nakedness, and ointment to put on your eyes to enable you to see. I reprove and train those whom I love: so repent in real earnest.'
  5. Revelation 5:9-14

    They sang a new hymn: You are worthy to take the scroll and to break its seals, because you were sacrificed, and with your blood you bought people for God of every race, language, people and nation and made them a line of kings and priests for God, to rule the world.

    In my vision, I heard the sound of an immense number of angels gathered round the throne and the living creatures and the elders; there were ten thousand times ten thousand of them and thousands upon thousands, loudly chanting:

Worthy is the Lamb that was sacrificed to receive power, riches, wisdom, strength, honour, glory and blessing.

Then I heard all the living things in creation-everything that lives in heaven, and on earth, and under the earth, and in the sea, crying:

To the One seated on the throne and to the Lamb, be all praise, honour, glory and power, for ever and ever.

And the four living creatures said, 'Amen'; and the elders prostrated themselves to worship.

  1. Revelation 7:14-17

    I answered him, 'You can tell me, sir.' Then he said, 'These are the people who have been through the great trial; they have washed their robes white again in the blood of the Lamb. That is why they are standing in front of God's throne and serving him day and night in his sanctuary; and the One who sits on the throne will spread his tent over them. They will never hunger or thirst again; sun and scorching wind will never plague them, because the Lamb who is at the heart of the throne will be their shepherd and will guide them to springs of living water; and God will wipe away all tears from their eyes.'
  2. Revelation 12:1-8

    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. Then a second sign appeared in the sky: there was a huge red dragon with seven heads and ten horns, and each of the seven heads crowned with a coronet. Its tail swept a third of the stars from the sky and hurled them to the ground, and the dragon stopped in front of the woman as she was at the point of giving birth, so that it could eat the child as soon as it was born. The woman was delivered of a boy, the son who was to rule all the nations with an iron sceptre, and the child was taken straight up to God and to his throne, while the woman escaped into the desert, where God had prepared a place for her to be looked after for twelve hundred and sixty days.

    And now war broke out in heaven, when Michael with his angels attacked the dragon. The dragon fought back with his angels, but they were defeated and driven out of heaven.
  3. Revelation 14:1-7

    Next in my vision I saw Mount Zion, and standing on it the Lamb who had with him a hundred and forty-four thousand people, all with his name and his Father's name written on their foreheads. I heard a sound coming out of heaven like the sound of the ocean or the roar of thunder; it was like the sound of harpists playing their harps. There before the throne they were singing a new hymn in the presence of the four living creatures and the elders, a hymn that could be learnt only by the hundred and forty-four thousand who had been redeemed from the world. These are the sons who have kept their virginity and not been defiled with women they follow the Lamb wherever he goes; they, out of all people, have been redeemed to be the first-fruits for God and for the Lamb. No lie was found in their mouths and no fault can be found in them.

    Then I saw another angel, flying high overhead, sent to announce the gospel of eternity to all who live on the earth, every nation, race, language and tribe. He was calling, 'Fear God and glorify him, because the time has come for him to sit in judgement; worship the maker of heaven and earth and sea and the springs of water.'

    Revelation 19: 7-8

    let us be glad and joyful and give glory to God, because this is the time for the marriage of the Lamb. His bride is ready, and she has been able to dress herself in dazzling white linen, because her linen is made of the good deeds of the saints.'
  4. Revelation 21:1-10

    Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; the first heaven and the first earth had disappeared now, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride dressed for her husband. Then I heard a loud voice call from the throne, 'Look, here God lives among human beings. He will make his home among them; they will be his people, and he will be their God, God-with-them. He will wipe away all tears from their eyes; there will be no more death, and no more mourning or sadness or pain. The world of the past has gone.'

    Then the One sitting on the throne spoke. 'Look, I am making the whole of creation new. Write this, "What I am saying is trustworthy and will come true."' Then he said to me, 'It has already happened. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give water from the well of life free to anybody who is thirsty; anyone who proves victorious will inherit these things; and I will be his God and he will be my son. But the legacy for cowards, for those who break their word, or worship obscenities, for murderers and the sexually immoral, and for sorcerers, worshippers of false gods or any other sort of liars, is the second death in the burning lake of sulphur.'

    One of the seven angels that had the seven bowls full of the seven final plagues came to speak to me and said, 'Come here and I will show you the bride that the Lamb has married.' In the spirit, he carried me to the top of a very high mountain, and showed me Jerusalem, the holy city, coming down out of heaven from God.

    Revelation 22:20

    The one who attests these things says: I am indeed coming soon.

    Amen; come, Lord Jesus.

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.

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.

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.

Promises of Our Lord to those devoted to His Sacred Heart
(these should be read by the prayer leader):

(1) I will give them all the graces necessary in their state of life.

(2) I will establish peace in their homes.

(3) I will comfort them in all their afflictions.

(4) I will be their refuge during life and above all in death.

(5) I will bestow a large blessing on all their undertakings.

(6) Sinners shall find in My Heart the source and the infinite ocean of mercy.

(7) Tepid souls shall grow fervent.

(8) Fervent souls shall quickly mount to high perfection.

(9) I will bless every place where a picture of My Heart shall be set up and honored.

(10) I will give to priests the gift of touching the most hardened hearts.

(11) Those who promote this devotion shall have their names written in My Heart, never to be blotted out.

(12) I promise you in the excessive mercy of My Heart that My all-powerful love will grant to all those who communicate on the first Friday in nine consecutive months the grace of final penitence; they shall not die in My disgrace nor without receiving their sacraments; My divine Heart shall be their safe refuge in this last moment.

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. We ask that You open the priest-readers to the graces You wish to give them through this chosen instrument of Your Son. We also ask that You provide for the financial needs of the newsletter and the Shepherds of Christ Associates. We make our prayer through Jesus, in the Holy Spirit, with Mary at our side. Amen"

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.

Première semaine
Méditations - Neuf jours

  1. Romains 8, 14-17

    Tous ceux qui sont conduits par l’Esprit de Dieu sont enfants de Dieu. Car l’Esprit que vous avez reçu n’est pas un esprit qui vous rende esclaves et vous remplisse encore de peur; mais c’est l’Esprit Saint qui fait de vous des enfants de Dieu et qui nous permet de crier à Dieu: "Mon Père". L’Esprit de Dieu atteste lui-même à notre esprit que nous sommes enfants de Dieu. Nous sommes ses enfants, donc nous aurons aussi part aux biens que Dieu a promis à son peuple, nous y aurons part avec le Christ; car si nous souffrons avec lui, nous serons aussi avec lui dans sa gloire.
  2. Romains 8, 5-9

    Ceux qui vivent selon leur propre nature se préoccupent de leurs désirs; mais ceux qui vivent selon l’Esprit Saint se préoccupent des désirs de l’Esprit. Se préoccuper des désirs de sa propre nature mène à la mort; mais se préoccuper des désirs de l’Esprit Saint mène à la vie et à la paix. Ceux qui sont dominés par les préoccupations de leur propre nature sont ennemis de Dieu; ils ne se soumettent pas à la loi de Dieu, il ne le peuvent même pas. Ceux qui dépendent de leur propre nature ne peuvent pas plaire à Dieu. Mais vous; vous ne vivez pas selon votre propre nature, vous vivez selon l’Esprit Saint, puisque l’Esprit de Dieu habite en vous. Celui qui n’a pas l’Esprit du Christ ne lui appartient pas.
  3. 1 Jean 4, 12-16

    Personne n’a jamais vu Dieu. Or, si nous nous aimons les uns les autres, Dieu demeure en nous et son amour se manifeste parfaitement en nous. Voici comment nous savons que nous demeurons unis à Dieu et qu’il demeure en nous: il nous a donné son Esprit. Et nous avons vu et nous témoignons que le Père a envoyé son Fils pour être le Sauveur du monde. Si quelqu’un reconnaît que Jésus est le Fils de Dieu, Dieu demeure en lui et il demeure uni à Dieu. Et nous, nous savons et nous croyons que Dieu nous aime. Dieu est amour; celui qui demeure dans l’amour demeure uni à Dieu et Dieu demeure en lui.
  4. 1 Jean 4, 17-21

    Si l’amour est parfait en nous, alors nous serons pleins d’assurance au jour du Jugement, parce que notre vie dans ce monde est semblable à celle de Jésus-Christ. Il n’y a pas de crainte dans l’amour; l’amour parfait exclut la crainte. La crainte est lieé à l’attente d’un châtiment et, ainsi, celui qui craint ne connaît pas l’amour dans se perfection. Quant à nous, nous aimons parce que Dieu nous a aimés le premier. Si quelqu’un dit: "J’aime Dieu", et qu’il haïsse son frère, c’est un menteur. En effet, s’il n’aime pas son frère qu’il voit, il ne peut pas aimer Dieu qu’il ne voit pas. Voici donc le commandement que le Christ nous a donné: celui qui aime Dieu doit aussi aimer son frère.
  5. 1 Jean 4, 7-11

    Mes chers amis, aimons-nous les uns les autres, car l’amour vient de Dieu. Quiconque aime est enfant de Dieu et connaît Dieu. Celui qui n’aime pas ne connaît pas Dieu, car Dieu est amour. Voici comment Dieu a manifesté son amour pour nous: il a envoyé son Fils unique dans le monde, afin que nous ayons la vraie vie par lui. Et l’amour consiste en ceci: ce n’est pas nous qui avons aimé Dieu, mais c’est lui qui nous a aimés; il a envoyé son Fils qui s’est offert en sacrifice pour le pardon de nos péchés. Mes chers amis, si c’est ainsi que Dieu nous a aimés, nous devons, nous aussi, nous aimer les uns les autres.
  6. Les Actes des Apôtres 1, 1-5

    Cher Théophile,
    Dans mon premier livre j’ai raconté tout ce que Jésus a fait et enseigné dès le début jusqu’au jour où il fut enlevé au ciel. Avant d’y monter il donna ses instructions, par la puissance du Saint-Esprit, à ceux qu’il avait choisis comme apôtres. En effet, après sa mort, c’est à eux qu’il se montra en leur prouvant de bien des manières qu’il était vivant: pendant quarante jours, il leur apparut et leur parla du Royaume de Dieu. Un Jour qu’il prenait un repas avec eux, il leur donna cet ordre: "Ne vous éloignez pas de Jérusalem, mais attendez ce que le Père a promis, le don que je vous ai annoncé. Car Jean a baptisé avec de l’eau, mais vous, dans peu de jours, vous serez baptisés avec le Saint-Esprit."
  7. Les Actes des Apôtres 1, 6-9

    Ceux qui étaient réunis auprès de Jésus lui demandèrent alors: "Seigneur, est-ce en ce temps-ci que tu rétabliras la royaume d’Israël?" Jésus leur répondit: "Il ne vous appartient pas de savoir quand viendront les temps et les moments, car le Père les a fixés de sa seule autorité. Mais vous recevrez une force quand le Saint-Esprit descendra sur vous. Vous serez alors mes témoins pour parler de moi à Jérusalem, dans toute la Judée et la Samarie, et jusqu’au bout du monde." Après ces paroles, Jésus s’éleva vers le ciel pendant que tous le regardaient; puis un nuage le cacha à leurs yeux.
  8. Les Actes des Apôtres 1, 12-14

    Les apôtres retournèrent alors à Jérusalem depuis la colline qu’on appelle mont des Oliviers. Cette colline se trouve près de la ville, à environ une demi-heure de marche. Quand ils furent arrivés à Jérusalem, ils montèrent dans la chambre où ils se tenaient d’habitude, en haut d’une maison. Il y avait Pierre, Jean, Jacques et André, Philippe et Thomas, Barthélemy et Matthieu, Jacques le fils d’Alphée, Simon le nationaliste et Jude le fils de Jacques. Tous ensemble ils se réunissaient régulièrement pour prier, avec les femmes, avec Marie la mère de Jésus, et avec les frères de Jésus.
  9. Les Actes des Apôtres 2, 1-4

    Quand le jour de la Pentecôte arriva, les croyants étaient réunis tous ensemble au même endroit. Tout à coup, un bruit vint du ciel, comme si un vent violent se mettait à souffler, et il remplit toute la maison oû ils étaient assis. Ils virent alors apparaître des langues pareilles à des flammes de feu; elles se séparènt et elles se posèrent une à une sur chacun d’eux. Ils furent tous remplis du Saint-Esprit et se mirent à parler en d’autres langues, selon ce que l’Esprit leur donnait d’exprimer.

Deuxième semaine
Méditations - Neuf jours

  1. Jean 14, 21-31

    "Celui qui retient mes commandements et leur obéit, voilà celui qui m’aime. Mon Père aimera celui qui m’aime; je l’aimerai aussi et me montrerai à lui". Jude (non pas Judas Iscariote) lui dit: "Seigneur, comment se fait-il que tu doives te montrer à nous et non au monde?"

    Jésus lui répondit: "Celui qui m’aime obéira à ce que je dis. Mon Père l’aimera: nous viendrons à lui, mon Père et moi, et nous habiterons chez lui. Celui qui ne m’aime pas n’obéit pas à mes paroles. Ce que vous m’entendez dire ne vient pas de moi, mais de mon Père qui m’a envoyé. Je vous ai dit cela pendant que je suis encore avec vous. Celui qui doit vous venir en aide, le Saint-Esprit que le Père enverra en mon nom, vous enseignera tout et vous rappellera tout ce que je vous ai dit.

    "C’est la paix que je vous laisse, c’est ma paix que je vous donne. Je ne vous la donne pas à la manière du monde. Ne soyez pas inquiets, ne soyez pas effrayés. Vous m’avez entendu dire: "Je m’en vais, mais je reviendrai auprès de vous."

    Si vous m’aimiez, vous vous réjouiriez de savoir que je vais auprès du Père, parce que le Père est plus grand que moi. Je vous l’ai dit maintenant, avant que ces choses arrivent, afin que lorsqu’elles arriveront vous croyiez. Je ne parlerai plus beaucoup avec vous, car le dominateur de ce monde vient. Il n’a aucun pouvoir sur moi, mais il faut que le monde sache que j’aime le Père et que j’agis comme le Père me l’a ordonné. Levez-vous, partons d’ici".

  2. Jean 17, 11-26

    Après avoir ainsi parlé, Jésus leva les yeux vers le ciel et dit: (...) "Je ne suis plus dans le monde, mais eux sont dans le monde; moi je vais à toi. Père saint, garde-les par ton divin pouvoir, celui que tu m’as donné, afin qu’ils soient un comme toi et moi nous sommes un. Pendant que j’étais avec eux, je les gardais par ton divin pouvoir celui que tu m’as accordé. Je les ai protégés et aucun d’eux ne s’est perdu, à part celui qui devait se perdre, pour que l’Ecriture se réalise. Et maintenant je vais à toi. Je parle ainsi pendant que je suis encore dans le monde, afin qu’ils aient en eux-mêmes ma joie, une joie complète. Je leur ai donné ta parole, et le monde les a haïs parce qu’ils n’appartiennent pas au monde, comme moi je n’appartiens pas au monde. Je ne te prie pas de les retirer du monde, mais de les garder du Mauvais. Ils n’appartiennent pas au monde, comme moi je n’appartiens pas au monde. Fais qu’ils soient entièrement à toi, par le moyen de la vérité; ta parole est la vérité. Je les ai envoyés dans le monde comme tu m’as envoyé dans le monde. Je m’offre entièrement à toi pour eux, afin qu’eux aussi soient vraiment à toi.

    Je ne prie pas seulement pour eux, mais aussi pour ceux qui croiront en moi grâce à leur message. Je prie pour que tous soient un. Père, qu’ils soient unis à nous, comme toi tu es uni à moi et moi à toi. Qu’ils soient un pour que le monde croie que tu m’as envoyé. Je leur ai donné la gloire que tu m’as donnée, pour qu’ils soient un comme toi et moi nous sommes un. Je vis en eux; tu vis en moi, c’est ainsi qu’ils pourront être parfaitement un, afin que le monde reconnaisse que tu m’as envoyé et que tu les aimes comme tu m’aimes.

    Père, tu me les as donnés, et je désire qu’ils soient avec moi là où je suis, afin qu’ils voient ma gloire, la gloire que tu m’as donnée, parce que tu m’as aimé avant la création du monde. Père juste, le monde ne t’a pas connu; mais moi je t’ai connu et ceux-ci ont reconnu que tu m’as envoyé. Je t’ai fait connaître à eux et te ferai encore connaître, afin que l’amour que tu as pour moi soit en eux et que je sois moi-même en eux."

  3. I Cor 15, 20-28

    En réalité, le Christ est revenu d’entre les morts, en donnant ainsi la garantie que ceux qui sont morts ressusciteront également. Car, de même que la mort est venue par un homme, de même la résurrection des morts vient par un homme. Tous les hommes meurent parce qu’ils sont liés à Adam, de même tous recevront la vie parce qu’ils sont liés au Christ, mais chacun à son propre rang: le Christ le premier de tous, puis ceux qui appartiennent au Christ, au moment où il viendra. Ensuite arrivera la fin: le Christ détruira toute autorité, tout pouvoir et toute puissance spirituels, et il remettra le Royaume à Dieu le Père. Car il faut que le Christ règne jusqu’à ce que Dieu ait contraint tous les ennemis à passer sous ses pieds. Le dernier ennemi qui sera détruit, c’est la mort. En effet, il est écrit:"Dieu lui a tout mis sous les pieds." Mais il est clair que, dans cette phrase, le mot "tout" n’inclut pas Dieu, qui soumet toutes choses au Christ. Lorsque toutes choses auront été soumises au Christ, alors lui-même, le Fils, se soumettra à Dieu qui lui aura tout soumis; ainsi, Dieu régnera parfaitement sur tout.
  4. Apoc 3,1-3, 12, 16-19

    "Ecris à l’ange de L’Eglise de Sardes:

    "Voici ce que déclare celui qui a les sept esprits de Dieu et les sept étoiles: Je connais ton activité; je sais que tu as la réputation d’être vivant, alors que tu es mort. Réveille-toi, affermis ce que tu as encore, avant que cela ne vienne à mourir complètement. Car j’ai remarqué qu’aucune de tes actions n’est parfaite aux yeux de Dieu. Rapelle-toi donc l’enseignement que tu as reçu et la façon dont tu l’as entendu; sois-lui fidèle et change de comportement. Si tu ne te réveilles pas, je viendrai te surprendre comme un voleur, sans que tu saches à quelle heure ce sera.

    "De celui qui aura remporté la victoire, je ferai une colonne dans le temple de mon Dieu et il n’en sortira plus jamais. J’inscrirai sur lui le nom de mon Dieu et le nom de la ville de mon Dieu, la nouvelle Jérusalem qui descend du ciel, envoyée par mon Dieu. J’inscrirai aussi sur lui mon nom nouveau.

    "Mais tu n’es ni bouillant ni froid, tu es tiède, de sorte que je vais te vomir de ma bouche. Tu dis: "Je suis riche et j’ai fait de bonnes affaires, je ne manque de rien". En fait, tu ne sais pas combien tu es malheureux et misérable. Tu es pauvre; nu et aveugle. C’est pourquoi je te conseille d’acheter chez moi de l’or purifié au feu, pour devenir réellement riche. Achète aussi des vêtements blancs pour t’en couvrir et n’avoir plus la honte de paraître nu, ainsi qu’un remède pour soigner tes yeux et leur rendre la vue. Je réprimande et corrige tous ceux que j’aime. Fais donc preuve de zèle et change de comportement."

  5. Apoc 5, 9-14

    Ils chantaient un chant nouveau: "Tu es digne de prendre le livre et d’en briser les sceaux. Car tu as été mis à mort et, par ton sacrifice, tu as acquis pour Dieu des gens de toute tribu, de toute langue, de tout peuple et de toute nation. Tu as fait d’eux un royaume de prêtres pour servir notre Dieu, et ils régneront sur la terre."

    Je regardai encore et j’entendis une multitude d’anges: il y en avait des milliers, des dizaines de milliers. Ils se tenaient autour du trône, des êtres vivants et des anciens, et ils chantaient d’une voix forte:

    "L’Agneau qui a été mis à mort est digne de recevoir la puissance, la richesse, la sagesse et la force, l’honneur, la gloire et la louange."

    J’endendis aussi toutes les créatures dans le ciel, sur la terre, sous la terre et dans la mer--les créatures de l’univers entier--qui chantaient:

    "A celui qui siège sur le trône et à l’Agneau soient la louange, l’honneur, la gloire et la puissance pour toujours."

    Les quatre êtres vivants répondaient: "Amen." Et les anciens s’agenouillèrent et adorèrent.

  6. Apoc 7, 14-17

    Je lui répondis: "C’est toi qui le sais, mon seigneur." Il me dit alors: "Ce sont ceux qui ont passé par la grande persécution. Ils ont lavé leurs robes et les ont blanchies dans le sang de l’Agneau. C’est pourquoi ils se tiennent devant le trône de Dieu et lui rende un culte nuit et jour dans son temple. Celui qui siège sur le trône les protégera. Ils n’auront plus jamais faim ni soif; ni le soleil, ni aucune chaleur torride ne les brûleront plus. Car l’Agneau qui est au milieu du trône sera leur berger et les conduira aux sources d’eau vive. Et Dieu essuiera toute larme de leurs yeux."
  7. Apoc 12, 1-8

    Un grand signe apparut dans le ciel: une femme enveloppée du soleil, qui avait la lune sous les pieds et une couronne de douze étoiles sur la tête. Elle allait mettre au monde un enfant, et les peines de l’acouchement la faisaient crier de douleur.

    Un autre signe apparut dans le ciel; un énorme dragon rouge qui avait sept têtes et dix cornes, et une couronne sur chaque tête. Avec sa queue, il balaya le tiers des étoiles du ciel et les jeta sur la terre. Il se plaça devant la femme qui allait accoucher, afin de dévorer son enfant dès qu’il serait né. La femme mit au monde un fils, qui dirigera toutes les nations avec une autorité de fer. L’enfant fut aussitôt amené auprès de Dieu et de son trône. Quant à la femme, elle s’enfuit dans le désert, où Dieu lui avait préparé un place, pour qu’elle y soit nourrie pendant mille deux cent soixante jours.

    Alors un bataille s’engagea dans le ciel. Michel et ses anges combatirent le dragon, et celui-ci se battit contre eux avec ses anges. Mais le dragon fut vaincu, et ses anges et lui n’eurent plus la possibil de rester dans le ciel.

  8. Apoc 14:1-7

    Je regardai encore: je vis l’Agneau qui se tenait sur le mont Sion et, avec lui, cent quarante-quatre mille personnes qui avaient son nom et le nom de son Père inscrits sur le front. J’entendis une voix qui venait du ciel et qui résonnait comme de grandes chutes d’eau, comme un fort coup de tonnerre. La voix que j’entendis était semblable au son produit par des harpistes, quand ils jouent leur instrument. Ces milliers de gens chantaient un chant nouveau devant le trône, devant les quatre êtres vivants et les anciens. Personne ne pouvait apprendre ce chant sinon les cent quarante-quatre mille qui ont été rachetés de la terre. Ceux-là ne se sont pas souillés avec des femmes, ils se sont gardés purs. Ils suivent l’Agneau partout où il va; ils ont été rachetés d’entre les humains pour être offerts les premiers à Dieu et à l’Agneau. Dans leur bouche, il n’y a jamais eu de place pour le mensonge; ils sont sans défaut.

    Puis je vis un autre ange qui volait très haut dans les airs; il avait un Bonne Nouvelle éternelle qu’il devait annoncer aux habitants de la terre, aux gens de toute nation, toute tribu, toute langue et tout peuple. Il disait d’une voix forte: "Soumettez-vous à Dieu et rendez-lui gloire. Car le moment est arrivé où il va juger l’humanité. Adorez celui qui a fait le ciel, la terre, la mer et les sources d’eau."

    Apoc 19, 7-8

    "...Réjouissons-nous et soyons heureux, rendons-lui gloire. Car le moment des noces de l’Agneau est arrivé, et son épouse s’est préparée. On lui a donné un vêtement fait d’un fin tissu de lin, brillant et pur." (Le tissu de lin represente les actions justes du peuple de Dieu.)

  9. Apoc 21:1-10

    Alors je vis un nouveau ciel et une nouvelle terre. Le premier ciel et la première terre avaient disparu, et il n’y avait plus de mer. Et je vis la ville sainte, la nouvelle Jérusalem, qui descendait du ciel, envoyée par Dieu, prête comme une épouse qui s’est faite belle pour aller à la rencontre de son mari. J’entendis une voix forte qui vennait du trône et disait: "Maintenant la demeure de Dieu est parmi les hommes! Il demeurera avec eux et ils seront ses peuples. Dieu lui-même sera avec eux et il sera leur Dieu. Il essuiera toute larme de leurs yeux. Il n’y aura plus de mort, il n’y aura plus ni deuil, ni lamentations, ni douleur. En effet, les choses anciennes auront disparu."

    Alors celui qui siège sur le trône déclara: "Maintenant, je fais toutes choses nouvelles." Puis il me dit: "Ecris ceci, car mes paroles sont vraies et dignes de confiance." Et il ajouta: "C’en est fait! Je suis l’Alpha et l’Oméga, le commencement et la fin. Celui qui a soif, je lui donnerai à boire gratuitement à la source de l’eau de la vie. Quiconque aura remporté la victoire recevra de moi ce don; je serai son Dieu, et il pera mon fils. Quant aux lâches, aux infidèles, aux êtres abominables, aux meurtriers, aux gens immoraux, à ceux qui pratiquent la magie, aux adorateurs d’idoles et à tous les menteurs, leur place sera dans le lac de soufre enflammé, qui est la seconde mort."

    L’un des sept anges qui tenaient les sept coupes pleines des sept derniers fléaux vint me dire: "Viens et je te montrerai la mariée, l’épouse de l’Agneau." L’esprit se saisit de moi et l’ange me transporta au sommet d’une très haute montagne. Il me montra la ville sainte, Jérusalem, qui descendait du ciel, envoyée par Dieu.

    Apoc 22, 20

    Celui qui garantit la vérité de tout cela déclare: "Oui, je viens bientôt." Amen! Qu’il en soit ainsi! Viens, Seigneur Jésus!

3. Le chapelet.

4. Le Salve Regina. "Salut, ô Reine, Mère de miséricorde, notre vie, notre doceur et notre espérance, salut.

Ô notre avocate, tourne donc vers nous tes regards miséricordieux, et au sortir de cet exil montre-nous Jésus, le fruit béni de tes entrailles. Ô clémente, ô charitable, ô douce Vierge Marie. Amen."

5. Le Memorare. "Souviens-toi, ô très pieuse Vierge Marie, qu’on n’a jamais entendu dire qu’aucun de ceux qui ont eu recours à ta protection, qui ont imploré ton assistance et réclamé ton secours, ait été abandonné. Animé d’une pareille confiance, je resours à toi ô Vierge des vierges. Je me présente devant toi, pécheur repentant. Ne rejette pas mes prières, ô Mère du Verbe, mais écoute-les favorablement et daigne les exaucer. Amen."

6. Les Sept "Je te salue Marie" en honneur des Sept Douleurs de Marie. A ceux et celles qui s’acquittent de cette dévotion tous les jours, Marie a promis de les assister au moment de la mort. Voici les sept douleurs de Marie:

10. Prière pour les prêtres. "Seigneur Jésus, Grand Pasteur du troupeau, nous prions pour que dans l’amour et la miséricorde de ton Sacré Coeur, tu assistes tes prêtres-pasteurs du monde entier.

Unis à ton Divin Coeur et au Coeur Immaculé de Marie, nous te prions de porter notre demande à ton Père céleste dans l’unité du Saint Esprit. Amen."

11. Prière pour tous les membres Associés des Pasteurs du Christ. "Jésus, nous te demandons de bénir tous les membres du mouvement Associés des Pasteurs du Christ. Continue à les instruire des privilèges et des responsabilitiés que tu as assignés à ce mouvement. Rends-les toujours plus près de ton Coeur et du Coeur de ta Sainte Mère Marie. Fais qu’ils réalisent toujours plus l’unique et grand amour de ton Coeur pour chacun d’eux. Accorde-leur la grâce de correspondre à ton amour et à celui de Marie, par un amour grandissant.

14. Prière à St. Michel et à notre Ange Gardien:

"St. Michel Archange, défends nous dans le combat. Sois notre protecteur contre la méchanceté et les embûches du démon. Que Dieu lui commande, nous t’en supplions. Et toi, Prince de la milice céleste, par le pouvoir qui t’a été confié, précipite au fond des enfers Satan et les autres esprits mauvais qui parcourent le monde pour la perte des âmes. Amen."

"Et toi, Ange du ciel, que Dieu a chargé de veiller sur moi, sois mon compagnon pour me conduire et me protéger, sois ma lumière et mon gardien aujourd’hui. Amen."

15. Moment de silence pour une prière personnelle. - au moins cinq minutes. 

16. Acte de consécration au Sacré Coeur de Jésus et au Coeur Immaculé de Marie.

"Seigneur Jésus, Pasteur de ton troupeau, je me consacre tout entier à ton Sacré Coeur. L’Eglise est née de ton Coeur transpercé, cette Eglise que tu m’a appellé à servir de façon spéciale, en tant que membre des Associés des Pasteurs du Christ. Tu nous révèle ton Coeur comme symbole de ton amour inépuisable, et de ton amour pour moi que tu as choisi comme ton compagnon pour cette oeuvre importante. Aide-moi à toujours t’aimer comme je dois. Aide-moi à me donner tout entier à toi. Aide-moi à me dépenser par amour de Dieu et du prochain. Coeur de Jésus, je mets ma confiance en Toi.

"Bienheureuse Vierge Marie, je me consacre à ton Coeur Immaculé et maternel, symbole de ta vie d’amour pour nous. Tu es la Mère de mon Sauveur, et ma Mère. Tu m’aimes spécialement comme membre des Associés des Pasteurs du Christ, un mouvement créé par ton Fils pour être un instrument puissant du renouveau de l’Eglise et du monde. En retour de cet amour, je me consacre entièrement à ton amour et à ta protection maternelle. En suivant Jésus parfaitement, tu es devenue son premier et parfait disciple. Enseigne-moi comment revêtir le Christ. Que la médiation maternelle de ton Coeur Immaculé m’obtienne d’être de plus en plus intimement uni au Coeur transpercé de Jésus, éminent Pasteur de son troupeau."

17. Prières quotidiennes. Tous les membres devraient réciter la prière au Saint-Esprit et l’acte de consécration tous les jours, ainsi que le Chapelet. On suggère qu’ils se servent des autres prières selon le temps disponible.

Novena al Espíritu Santo

Ministerios Pastores de Cristo


Oración de Apertura

En el Nombre del Padre y del Hijo y del Espíritu Santo. Amén

Padre querido, acudimos a ti en el nombre de Jesús, en unión con él en el Santo Sacrificio de la Misa, en el Espíritu Santo. Venimos a ti unidos al Niño Jesús de la Buena Salud y al Santo Niño de Praga. Acudimos a ti en el puro e inmaculado corazón de Nuestra Madre María, pidiendo su intercesión poderosa y uniéndonos a sus lágrimas santas. Venimos a ti unidos a todos los ángeles y santos, y a las almas del purgatorio.

Oración para el Espíritu Santo

Oramos para que el Espíritu Santo se derrame sobre nosotros, para ser bautizados en el Espíritu Santo, para que él descienda con su poder sobre nosotros, como lo hizo sobre los apóstoles en Pentecostés. Que el Espíritu Santo nos transforme del temor a la valentía, y que nos dé fuerza para realizar todo lo que el Padre nos está pidiendo para ayudar a implantar el Reinado del Sagrado Corazón y el triunfo del Corazón Inmaculado de María. Oramos para que el Espíritu Santo descienda sobre todo el Cuerpo Místico de Cristo y el mundo.

Protección mediante la Sangre de Jesús

Espíritu Eterno, llénanos de tu Divina Sabiduría para que podamos entender más a fondo el conocimiento hacia tus Divinos Misterios.

Danos luces, Oh Santo Espíritu, para conocer a Dios. Actúa dentro de nuestro corazón para formarnos cada vez más a imagen de Jesús.

Queremos ser uno Contigo, Señor Espíritu de Luz, que te mueves en nosotros con cada respiración nuestra.

Oración para ser uno con Jesús

Permítenos, Señor, experimentar la vida en el Sagrado Corazón de Jesús, para que podamos decir como San Pablo, "Yo he sido crucificado con Cristo y a pesar de esto estoy vivo, pero ya no soy Yo, sino Cristo viviendo en mi..." Permítenos vivir, unidos a la Misa, siendo uno con él durante todo el día. Déjanos ser capaces de amar y conocer, en ese alto nivel de unidad con nuestro Dios.

Oración para el Espíritu Santo y Sus Dones

Ven Espíritu Santo, ven a nuestros corazones, y enciende en ellos el fuego de tu amor.

Líder: Envía, Señor, tu Espíritu y todos renacerán

Todos: Y Tu renovarás la faz de la tierra.

Oramos y pedimos los siete dones del Espíritu Santo, suplicamos perfección en nuestras almas para hacerlas santas, almas santas semejantes a Dios.

Oración para que la Palabra Viva en Nuestros Corazones

Meditaciones para Nueve Días

  1. Romanos 8:14-17

    Todos aquellos a los que guía el Espíritu de Dios son hijos e hijas de Dios. Entonces no vuelvan al miedo; ustedes no recibieron un espíritu de esclavos, sino el espíritu propio de los hijos, que nos permite gritar: ¡Abba!, o sea: ¡Papá! El Espíritu asegura a nuestro espíritu que somos hijos de Dios. Siendo hijos, son también herederos; la herencia de Dios será nuestra y la compartiremos con Cristo. Y si hemos sufrido con él, estaremos con él también en la Gloria.

  2. Romanos 8:5-9

    Los que viven según la carne van a lo que es de la carne, y los que viven según el Espíritu van a las cosas del espíritu. Pero no hay sino muerte en lo que ansia la carne, mientras que el espíritu anhela vida y paz. Los proyectos de la carne están en contra de Dios, pues la carne no se somete a la ley de Dios, y ni siquiera puede someterse. Por eso los que viven según la carne no pueden agradar a Dios. Ustedes ya no están en la carne, sino que viven en el espíritu, pues el Espíritu de Dios habita en ustedes. Si alguno no tuviera el Espíritu de Cristo, éste no le pertenecería.

  3. 1 Juan 4:12-16

    A Dios no lo ha visto nadie jamás; pero si nos amamos unos a otros, Dios está entre nosotros y su amor da todos sus frutos entre nosotros. Y ¿cómo sabemos que permanecemos en Dios y él en nosotros? Por que nos ha comunicado su Espíritu. Pero también hemos visto nosotros y declaramos que el Padre envió a su Hijo como Salvador de el mundo. Quien reconozca que Jesús es el Hijo de Dios, Dios permanece en él y él en Dios. Por nuestra parte, hemos conocido el amor que Dios nos tiene, y hemos creído en él. Dios es amor: el que permanece en el amor permanece en Dios y Dios en él.

  4. 1 Juan 4:17-21

    Cuando el amor alcanza en nosotros su perfección, miramos con confianza al día del juicio, porque ya somos en este mundo como es Él. En el amor no hay temor. El amor perfecto echa fuera el temor, pues hay temor donde hay castigo. Quien teme no conoce el amor perfecto. Amemos, pues, ya que él nos amó primero. Si uno dice {Yo amor a Dios}, y odia a su hermano, es un mentiroso. Si no ama a su hermano, a quien ve, no puede amar a Dios, a quien no ve. Pues éste es el mandamiento que recibimos de él; el que ama a Dios, ama también a su hermano.

  5. 1 Juan 4:7-11

    Queridos míos, amémonos unos a otros, porque el amor viene de Dios. Todo el que ama ha nacido de Dios y conoce a Dios. El que no ama no ha conocido a Dios, pues Dios es amor. Miren cómo se manifestó el amor de Dios entre nosotros: Dios envió a su Hijo único a este mundo para que tengamos vida por medio de él. En esto está el amor: no es que nosotros hayamos amado a Dios, si no que él nos amo primero y envió a su Hijo como víctima por nuestros pecados. Queridos, si Dios nos amó de esta manera, también nosotros debemos amarnos mutuamente.

  6. Hechos de los Apóstoles 1:1-5

    En mi primer libro, querido Teófilo, hablé de todo lo que Jesús comenzó a hacer y enseñar. Al final del libro, Jesús, lleno del Espíritu Santo, daba instrucciones a los apóstoles que había elegido y era llevado al cielo. De hecho, se presentó a ellos después de su pasión y les dio numerosas pruebas de que vivía. Durante cuarenta días se dejó ver por ellos y les habló del Reino de Dios. En una ocasión en que estaba reunido con ellos les dijo que no se alejaran de Jerusalén y que esperaran lo que el Padre había prometido. {Ya les hablé al respecto, les dijo: Juan bautizó con agua, pero ustedes serán bautizados en el Espíritu Santo dentro de pocos días.}

  7. Hechos de los Apóstoles 1:6-9

    Los que estaban presentes le preguntaron: {Señor, ¿es ahora cuando vas a restablecer el Reino de Israel?} Les respondió: {No les corresponde a ustedes conocer los plazos y los pasos que solamente el Padre tenía autoridad para decidir. Pero recibirán la fuerza del Espíritu Santo cuando venga sobre ustedes, y serán mis testigos en Jerusalén, en toda Judea, en Samaría y hasta los extremos de la tierra.} Dicho esto, Jesús fue levantado ante sus ojos y una nube lo ocultó de su vista. Ellos seguían mirando fijamente al cielo mientras se alejaba. Pero de repente vieron a su lado a dos hombres vestidos de blanco, que les dijeron: {Amigos galileos, ¿qué hacen ahí mirando al cielo? Este Jesús que les ha llevado volverá de la misma manera que ustedes lo han visto ir al cielo.}

  8. Hechos de los Apóstoles 1:12-14

    Entonces volvieron a Jerusalén desde el monte llamado de los Olivos, que dista de la ciudad como media hora de camino. Entraron en la ciudad y subieron a la habitación superior de la casa donde se alojaban. Allí estaba Pedro, Juan, Santiago y Andrés, Felipe y Tomás, Bartolomé y Mateo, Santiago, hijo de Alfeo, Simón el Zelotes, y Judas, hijo de Santiago. Todos ellos perseveraban juntos en la oración en compañía de algunas mujeres, de María, la madre de Jesús, y de sus hermanos.

  9. Hechos de los Apóstoles 2:1-4

    Cuando llegó el día de Pentecostés, estaban todos reunidos en el mismo lugar. De repente vino del cielo un ruido, como el de una violenta ráfaga de viento, que llenó toda la casa donde estaban, y aparecieron unas lenguas como de fuego que se repartieron y fueron posándose sobre cada uno de ellos. Todos quedaron llenos del Espíritu Santo y comenzaron a hablar en otras lenguas, según el Espíritu les concedía que se expresaran.

Segundo Período
Meditaciones para Nueve Días

  1. Juan 14:21-31

    El que guarda mis mandamientos después de recibirlos, ése es el que me ama. El que me ama a mi será amado por mi Padre, y yo también lo amaré y me manifestaré a él.}

    Juda, no el Iscariote, le preguntó: {Señor, ¿por qué hablas de mostrarte a nosotros y no al mundo?}

    Jesús le respondió: {Si alguien me ama, guardará mis palabras, y mi Padre lo amará. Entonces vendremos a él para poner nuestra morada en él.

    El que no me ama no guarda mis palabras; pero el mensaje que escuchan no es mío, sino del Padre que me ha enviado.

    Les he dicho todo esto mientras estaba con ustedes. En adelante el Espíritu Santo, el Intérprete que el Padre les va a enviar en mi Nombre, les enseñara todas las cosas y les recordará todo lo que yo les he dicho.

    Les dejo la paz, les doy mi paz. La paz que yo les doy no es como la que da el mundo. Que no haya en ustedes angustia ni miedo. Saben que les dije: Me voy, pero volveré a ustedes. Si me amaran, se alegrarían de que me vaya al Padre, pues el Padre es más grande que yo.

    Les he dicho estas cosas ahora, antes de qué sucedan, para que cuando sucedan ustedes crean. Ya no hablaré mucho más con ustedes, pues se está acercando el que gobierna este mundo. En mi no encontrará nada suyo, pero con esto sabrá el mundo que yo amo al Padre y que hago lo que el Padre me ha encomendado hacer. Ahora levántense y vayámonos de aquí.

  2. Juan 17:11-26

    Yo ya no estoy más en el mundo, pero ellos se quedan en el mundo, mientras yo vuelvo a ti. Padre Santo, guárdanos en ese Nombre tuyo que a mí me diste, para que sean uno como nosotros.

    Cuando estaba con ellos, yo los cuidaba en tu Nombre, pues tú me los habías encomendado, y ninguno de ellos se perdió, excepto el que llevaba en sí la perdición, pues en esto había de cumplirse la Escritura. Pero ahora que voy a ti, y estando todavía en el mundo digo estas cosas para que tengan en ellos la plenitud de mi alegría.

    Yo les he dado tu mensaje y el mundo los ha odiado porque no son del mundo, como tampoco yo soy del mundo. No te pido que los saques del mundo, sino que los defiendas del Maligno. ellos no son del mundo, como tampoco yo soy del mundo.

    Conságralos mediante la verdad: tu palabra es verdad. Así como tú me has enviado al mundo, así yo también los envío al mundo; por ellos ofrezco el sacrificio, para que también ellos sean consagrados en la verdad.

    No ruego sólo por éstos, sino también por todos aquellos que creerán en mi por su palabra. Que todos sean uno, como tú, Padre, estás en mi y yo en ti. Que ellos también sean uno en nosotros, para que el mundo crea que tú me has enviado.

    Yo les he dado la Gloria que tú me diste, para que sean uno como nosotros somos uno: yo en ellos y tú en mi. Así alcanzarán la perfección en la unidad, y el mundo conocerá que tú me has enviado y que yo los he amado a ellos como tú me amas a mi.

    Padre, ya que me los has dado, quiero que estén conmigo donde yo estoy y que contemplen la Gloria que tú ya me das, porque me amabas antes que comenzara el mundo.

    Padre justo, el mundo no te ha conocido, pero yo te conocía, y éstos a su vez han conocido que tú me has enviado. Yo les he dado a conocer tu Nombre y se lo seguiré dando a conocer, para que el amor con que tú me amas esté en ellos y también yo esté en ellos.}

  3. I Corintios 15:20-28

    Pero no, Cristo resucitó de entre los muertos, siendo el primero y primicia de los que se durmieron.

    Un hombre trajo la muerte, y un hombre también trae la resurrección de entre los muertos. Todos mueren por estar incluidos en Adán, y todos también recibirán la vida en Cristo.

    Pero se respeta el lugar de cada uno: Cristo es primero, y más tarde les tocará a los suyos, cuando Cristo nos visite.

    Luego llegará el fin. Cristo entregará a Dios Padre el Reino después de haber desarmado todas las estructuras, autoridades y fuerzas del universo. Está dicho que debe ejercer el poder hasta que haya puesto a todos sus enemigos bajo sus pies, y él ultimo de los enemigos sometidos será la muerte. Dios pondrá todas las cosas bajo sus pies. Todo le será sometido, pero es evidente que se excluye a Aquel que le somete el universo. Y cuando el universo le quede sometido, el Hijo se someterá a Aquel que le sometió todas las cosas, para que en adelante Dios sea todo en todos.

  4. Apocalipsis 3:1-3,12,16-19

    Escribe al ángel de la Iglesia de Sardes: Así habla el que tiene los siete espíritus de Dios y las siete estrellas:

    Conozco tus obras; te creen vivo, pero estás muerto. Despiértate y reanima lo que todavía no ha muerto, pues tus obras me parecen muy mediocres a la luz de Dios. Recuerda lo que recibiste y oíste, ponlo en práctica y arrepiéntete. Por que si no te mantienes despierto vendré como un ladrón, sin que sepas a qué hora te sorprenderé.

    Al vencedor lo pondré como columna en el Templo de mi Dios, de donde nadie lo sacará. Grabaré en él el nombre de mi Dios, el nombre de la ciudad que baja del cielo, la nueva Jerusalén que viene de Dios, y mi nombre nuevo.

    Pero porque eres tibio y no frío o caliente, voy a vomitarte de mi boca.

    Tu piensas: {Soy rico, tengo de todo, nada me falta}. Y no te das cuenta de que eres un infeliz, digno de compasión, pobre, ciego y desnudo. Te aconsejo que me compres oro refinado para que te hagas rico, ropas blancas para que te cubras y no tengas que avergonzarte de tu desnudez; por último pídeme un colirio que te pondrás en los ojos para ver. Yo reprendo y corrijo a los que amo. Vamos, anímate y conviértete.

    Apocalipsis 5:9-14

    Y cantaban este cántico nuevo:
    Eres digno de tomar el libro
    y de abrir sus sellos,
    porque fuiste degollado
    y con tu sangre compraste para
    hombres de toda raza, lengua,
    pueblo y nación .
    Los hiciste reino y sacerdotes
    para nuestro Dios,
    y reinarán sobre la tierra.

    Yo seguía mirando, y oí en el clamor de una multitud de ángeles que estaban alrededor del trono, de los Seres Vivientes y de los Ancianos, Eran millones, centenares de millones que gritaban a toda voz:
    Digno es el Cordero degollado
    de recibir poder y riqueza,
    sabiduría y fuerza,
    honor, gloria y alabanza.

    Y les respondían todas las criaturas del cielo, de la tierra, del mar y del mundo de abajo. Oí que decían:
    Al que está sentado en el trono y
    al Cordero,
    la alabanza, el honor, la gloria y el
    por los siglos de los siglos.

    Y los cuatro Seres Vivientes decían {Amén}, mientras los Ancianos se postraban y adoraban.

  1. Apocalipsis 7:14-17

    Yo contesté: {Señor, tú lo sabes.} El Anciano me replicó: {Esos son los que vienen de la gran persecución; han lavado y blanqueado sus vestiduras con la sangre del Cordero. Por eso están ante el trono de Dios y le sirven día y noche en su templo; el que está sentado en el trono extenderá su tienda sobre ellos; ya no sufrirán más hambre ni sed ni se verán agobiados por el sol ni por viento abrasador alguno, porque el Cordero que está junto al trono será su pastor y los guiará a los manantiales de las aguas de la vida; y Dios enjugará las lágrimas de sus ojos.}

  2. Apocalipsis 12:1-8

    Apareció en el cielo una señal grandiosa: una mujer, vestida del sol, con la luna bajo sus pies y una corona de doce estrellas sobre su cabeza. Está embarazada y grita de dolor, porque le ha llegado la hora de lar a luz.

    Apareció también otra señal: un enorme dragón rojo con siete cabezas y diez cuernos, y en las cabezas siete coronas; con su cola barre la tercera parte de las estrellas del cielo, precipitándolas sobre la tierra.

    El dragón se detuvo delante de la mujer que iba a dar a luz para devorar a su hijo en cuanto naciera. Y la mujer dio a luz a un hijo varón, que ha de gobernar a todas las naciones con vara de hierro; pero su hijo fue arrebatado y llevado ante Dios y su trono, mientras la mujer huyó al desierto, donde tiene un lugar que Dios le ha preparado. Allí la alimentaran durante mil doscientos sesenta días.

    Entonces se desató una batalla en el cielo: Miguel y sus ángeles combatieron contra el dragón. Lucharon el dragón y sus ángeles, pero no pudieron vencer, y ya no hubo lugar para ellos en el cielo.

  3. Apocalipsis 14:1-7

    Tuve otra visión: el Cordero estaba de pie sobre el monte Sión y lo rodeaban ciento cuarenta y cuatro mil personas que llevaban escrito en la frente el nombre del Cordero y el nombre de su Padre. Un ruido retumbaba en el cielo, parecido al estruendo de las olas o al fragor del trueno: era como un coro de cantores que se acompañan tocando sus arpas.

    Cantan un cántico nuevo delante del trono y delante de los cuatro Vivientes y de los Ancianos. Y nadie podía aprender aquel canto, a excepción de los ciento cuarenta y cuatro mil que han sido rescatados de la tierra. Estos son los que no se mancharon con mujeres: son vírgenes. Estos siguen al Cordero adondequiera que vaya; estos son como las primicias, pues han sido rescatados de entre los hombre para Dios y el Cordero. En su boca no se encontró mentira: son intachables.

    Luego vi a otro ángel que volaba por lo alto del cielo, trayendo la buena nueva definitiva, la que tenía que anunciar a los habitantes de la tierra, a toda nación, raza, lengua y pueblo. Gritaba con fuerza:

    Apocalipsis 19:7-8

    Alegrémonos, regocijémonos
    démosle honor y gloria,
    porque han llegado las bodas del
    Su esposa se ha engalanado,
    la han vestido de lino fino,
    deslumbrante de blancura
    -el lino son las buenas acciones
    de los santos-.

  4. Apocalipsis 21:1-10

    Después vi un cielo nuevo y una tierra nueva, pies el primer cielo y la primera tierra habían desaparecido y el mar no existe ya. Y vi a la Ciudad Santa, la nueva Jerusalén, que bajaba del cielo, de junto a Dios, engalanada como una novia que se adorna para recibir a su esposo. Y oí una voz que clamaba desde el trono: {Esta es la morada de Dios con los hombres; él habitará en medio de ellos; ellos serán su pueblo y él sera Dios-con-ellos; él enjugará las lágrimas de sus ojos. Ya no habrá muerte ni lamento, ni llanto ni pena, pues todo lo anterior ha pasado.}

    Y el que estaba sentado en el trono dijo: {Ahora todo lo hago nuevo}. Luego me dijo: {Escribe, que estas palabras son ciertas y verdaderas.} Y añadió: {Ya está hecho. Yo soy el Alfa y el Omega, el Principio y el Fin. Al que tenga sed yo le daré de beber gratuitamente del manantial del agua de la vida. Esta será la herencia del vencedor: Yo seré Dios para él y él será hijo para mi. Pero para los cobardes, los renegados, los corrompidos, los asesinos, los impuros, los hechiceros, los idólatras, en una palabra, para todos los falsos, su lugar y su parte es el lago que arde con fuego de azufre, que es la segunda muerte.}

    Se acercó a mí uno de los siete ángeles de las siete copas llenas de las siete últimas plagas y me dijo: {Ven, que te voy a mostrar a la novia, a la esposa del Cordero.} Me trasladó en espíritu a un cerro muy grande y elevado y me mostró la Ciudad Santa de Jerusalén, que bajaba del cielo de junto a Dios.

    Apocalipsis 22:20

    El que da fe de estas palabras dice: {Sí, vengo pronto.} Amén. Ven, Señor Jesús.

Pero, aun dentro de las preocupaciones materiales de la vida, tu alma estaba llena de profunda paz y cantó llena de verdadera alegría debido al íntimo trato que gozaste con el Hijo de Dios que te fue confiado a ti a la vez a María, su tierna Madre. Amén." -- El Papa Juan XXIII

Corazón de Jesús, traspasado por una lanza,
Corazón de Jesús, fuente de todo consuelo,
Corazón de Jesús, vida y resurrección nuestra,
Corazón de Jesús, paz y reconciliación nuestra,
Corazón de Jesús, víctima por los pecadores,
Corazón de Jesús, salvación de los que en ti esperan,
Corazón de Jesús, esperanza de los que en ti mueren,
Corazón de Jesús, delicia de todos los santos,
Cordero de Dios, que quitas el pecado del mundo, perdónanos Señor.
Cordero de Dios, que quitas el pecado del mundo, ten piedad de nosotros.
Jesús, manso y humilde de Corazón, haz nuestro corazón semejante al tuyo.

Oración: Oh Dios todopoderoso y eterno, mira el Corazón de tu amantísimo Hijo, las alabanzas y satisfacciones que en nombre de los pecadores te ofrece y concede el perdón a éstos que piden misericordia en el nombre de tu mismo Hijo, Jesucristo, el cual vive y reina contigo por los siglos de los siglos. Amén.

Concédeles la gracia de corresponder a tu amor y al amor de María con un mayor amor de parte suya.

Amén."

14. Oración a San Miguel y nuestros Angeles de la Guardia:

"San Miguel Arcángel, defiéndenos en la lucha. Sé nuestro amparo contra las asechanza y perversidad del demonio. Reprímale Dios, pedimos suplicantes, y tu príncipe de la milicia celestial arroja al infierno a Satanás y a demás espíritus malignos que vagan por el mundo para la perdición de las almas. Amén."

Novena do Espírito Santo

Publicações Pastores de Cristo



Em nome do Pai e do Filho e do Espírito Santo. Amém.

Pai querido, vimos até Vós em nome de Jesus, em união com Ele no Santo Sacrifício da Missa, no Espírito Santo. Vimos a Vós unidos ao Menino Jesus da Boa Saúde e o Menino Jesus de Praga. Vimos a Vós no Coração perfeito e imaculado de Maria, Nossa Mãe, pedindo sua poderosa intercessão, unindo-nos às suas santas lágrimas. Nós vimos até Vós unidos a todos os anjos e santos e as almas do purgatório.


Nós rezamos por uma efusão do Espírito Santo sobre nós, para sermos batizados pelo Espírito Santo, para que Ele desça poderosamente sobre nós como Ele fez sobre os Apóstolos em Pentecostes. Para que o Espírito Santo possa nos transformar do medo ao destemor e para que Ele nos possa conceder fazer tudo que o Pai nos pede para ajudar a trazer o Reino do Sagrado Coração de Jesus e o triunfo do Coração Imaculado de Maria. Nós rezamos para que o Espírito Santo desça poderosamente sobre os Jesuítas e as Clarissas e nos líderes e membros dos Pastores de Cristo e no inteiro Corpo de Cristo e no mundo.


Nós rezamos para que o Sangue de Jesus desça sobre nós, cada membro de nossas famílias e o Movimento dos Pastores de Cristo, para que possamos ser capazes de seguir firmes em frente e ser protegidos do Maligno.


Nós rezamos pela cura no corpo, mente, alma e cura das diferenças entre gerações em nós mesmos e nos membros das nossas famílias e em todos os membros do Movimento dos Pastores de Cristo, a Comunidade dos Jesuítas, das Clarissas, do Corpo de Cristo e do mundo

Nós queremos ser um convosco, ó Espírito de Luz, a fim de que possais agir em nós em cada suspiro que dermos.


Vamos sentir a vida no Sagrado Coração de Jesus para que possamos dizer com São Paulo: "Fui crucificado com Cristo e mesmo assim, eu ainda vivo; contudo, não sou eu mais que vivo, mas é Cristo que vive em mim...". Vivamos, unidos à Missa, durante o dia todo sendo um com Ele. Sejamos capazes de amar e conhecer este elevado estado de identidade com o nosso Deus. Nós Vos desejamos ardentemente, ó belíssimo Deus, nós Vos amamos, Vos amamos, Vos amamos. Nós Vos bendizemos, Vos damos culto, Vos honramos, Vos adoramos, nossa amado Deus, Pai, Filho e Espírito Santo.


Nós procuramos ser um em Deus, viver e morar nos Corações de Jesus e Maria, nosso céuzinho aqui na terra, para sentir a vida no perfeitíssimo, puro e imaculado Coração de nossa Mãe. Nós queremos que o Espírito Santo nos mova a estar unidos a Jesus como o Esposo de nossas almas e tornar-se um sacrifício perfeitíssimo oferecido ao Pai a cada momento enquanto nos unimos ao Santo Sacrifício da Missa celebrada em todo mundo para ajudar na salvação das almas.


Vinde Espírito Santo ,vinde, vinde a nossos corações, inflamai todas as pessoas com o fogo do vosso Amor.

Líder: Enviai o vosso Espírito e todos serão renascidos.
: E Vós renovareis a face da terra.

Nós rezamos pelos sete dons do Espírito Santo, nós pedimos pela perfeição em nossas almas a fim de nos santificar, de nos fazer almas santas à semelhança de Deus. Querido Espírito Santo, nós nos damos a Vós em corpo e alma. Nós pedimos que nos deis o Espírito de Sabedoria, Entendimento, Conselho, Fortaleza, Ciência, Piedade e Temor de Deus.


Nós sabemos, querido Espírito Santo, que a Palavra em sua natureza humana nos foi dada dentro do útero da Mulher. Nós rezamos para que sua Palavra seja produzida em nossos corações conforme Ele vive e habita em nós. Nós queremos que a incarnação continue em nossas vidas. Querido Espírito Santo, trabalhe em nós.


Querido Espírito Santo, ajude nos a não ser ignorantes, indiferentes ou fracos, ajude-nos a ser fortes com o amor de Deus.

Querido Espírito Santo, por favor reze conosco por nossas necessidades.

Ajude-nos a saber o que é certo e o que é errado.


Ó Cordeiro de Deus, que tirais os pecados do mundo, vinde e agi intimamente na minha alma. Eu me entrego, enquanto peço pela graça de prosseguir, de ser como eu existo em vós e Vós agi intimamente na minha alma. Vós sois o Iniciador. Eu sou a alma esperando os vossos favores enquanto Vós agis em mim. Eu Vos amo. Eu Vos adoro. Eu Vos presto culto. Vinde e possuí minha alma com a Vossa Divina Graça enquanto eu Vos sinto intimamente.


  1. Romanos 8:14-17

    Todos os que são conduzidos pelo Espírito de Deus são filhos de Deus. Com efeito, não recebestes um espírito de escravos, para recair no temor, mas recebestes um espírito de filhos adotivos, pelo qual clamamos: Abba! Pai! O próprio Espírito se une ao nosso espírito para testemunhar que somos filhos de Deus. E se somos filhos, somos também herdeiros; herdeiros de Deus e co-herdeiros de Cristo, pois sofremos com Ele para também com Ele sermos glorificados.

  2. Romanos 8:5-9

    Com efeito, os que vivem segundo a carne desejam as coisas da carne, e os que vivem segundo o espírito, as coisas que são do espírito. De fato, o desejo da carne é morte, ao passo que o desejo do espírito é vida e paz, uma vez que o desejo da carne é inimigo de Deus: pois ele não se submete à lei de Deus, e nem o pode, pois os que estão na carne não podem agradar a Deus. Vós não estais na carne, mas no espírito, se é que o Espírito de Cristo habita em vós, pois quem não tem o espírito de Cristo não pertence a Ele.

  3. 1 João 4:12-16

    Ninguém jamais contemplou a Deus. Se nos amarmos uns aos outros, Deus permanece em nós, e seu Amor em nós é perfeito.

    Nisto reconhecemos que permanecemos nele e Ele em nós: Ele nos deu o seu Espírito. E nós contemplamos e testemunhamos que o Pai enviou o seu Filho como Salvador do mundo.

    Aquele que confessar que Jesus é o Filho de Deus, Deus permanece nele e ele em Deus.

    E nós temos reconhecido o amor de Deus por nós, e nele acreditamos.

    Deus é Amor: aquele que permanece no amor permanece em Deus e Deus permanece nele.

  4. 1 João 4:17-21

    Nisto consiste a perfeição do amor em nós: que tenhamos plena confiança no dia do Julgamento, porque tal como ele é também somos nós neste mundo.

    Não há temor no amor; mas o perfeito amor lança fora o temor, porque o temor implica um castigo, e o que teme não é perfeito no amor.

    Quanto a nós, amemos, porque ele nos amou primeiro.

    Se alguém disser: "Amo a Deus", mas odeia o seu irmão, é um mentiroso: pois quem não ama seu irmão, a quem vê, a Deus, a quem não vê, não poderá amar.

    E este mandamento dele recebemos: aquele que ama a Deus, ame também o seu irmão.

  5. 1 João 4:7-11

    Caríssimos, amemo-nos uns aos outros, pois o amor é de Deus e todo aquele que ama nasceu de Deus e conhece a Deus. Aquele que não ama não conheceu a Deus, porque Deus é Amor.

    Nisto se manifestou o amor de Deus entre nós: Deus enviou o seu Filho ao mundo para que vivamos por Ele. Nisto consiste o amor: não fomos nós que amamos a Deus, mas foi Ele quem nos amou e enviou-nos o seu Filho como vítima de expiação pelos nossos pecados.

    Caríssimos, se Deus assim nos amou, devemos, nós também, amarmo-nos uns aos outros.

  6. Atos dos Apóstolos 1:1-5

    No primeiro livro, ó Teófilo, apresentei tudo quanto Jesus fez e ensinou, desde o princípio, até ao dia em que, pelo Espírito Santo, deu ordem aos apóstolos que havia escolhido, e foi elevado ao céu.

    A eles mostrou-se vivo após a paixão com numerosas e indiscutíveis provas; apareceu-lhes por espaço de quarenta dias, falando-lhes do Reino de Deus. No decurso de uma refeição da qual participou, ordenou-lhes que não se afastassem de Jerusalém, mas que esperassem a realização da promessa do Pai "a qual, disse Ele, ouvistes da minha boca: João batizava com água; vós, porém, sereis batizados com o Espírito Santo dentro de poucos dias".

  7. Atos dos Apóstolos 1:6-9

    Estando, portanto, reunidos, eles o interrogavam: "Senhor, será agora que hás de restaurar a realeza em Israel?" Ele respondeu: "Não vos compete conhecer os tempos e os momentos que o Pai reservou a seu poder. Mas o Espírito Santo descerá sobre vós e dele recebereis força. Sereis, então, minhas testemunhas em Jerusalém, em toda a Judéia e Samaria, e até os confins da terra.

    Dito isso, elevou-se à vista deles, e uma nuvem o ocultou a seus olhos.

  8. Atos dos Apóstolos 1:12-14

    Então, do monte que se chama das Oliveiras, voltaram a Jerusalém. A distância não é grande, é a de um caminho de sábado. Tendo entrado na cidade, subiram à sala superior, onde habitualmente ficavam. Eram Pedro, João, Tiago, André, Filipe e Tomé, Bartolomeu e Mateus, Tiago, filho de Alfeu, Simão Zelote e Judas, filho de Tiago.

    Todos, unânimes, eram assíduos à oração com algumas mulheres, entre as quais Maria, mãe de Jesus, e os irmãos dele.

  9. Atos dos Apóstolos 2:1-4

Quando chegou o dia de Pentecostes, estavam todos reunidos no mesmo lugar. De repente, veio do céu um ruído semelhante ao soprar de um impetuoso vendaval, e encheu toda a casa onde se achavam. E apareceram umas como línguas de fogo, que se distribuíram e foram pousar sobre cada um deles. Todos ficaram cheios do Espírito Santo e começaram a falar em outras línguas, conforme o Espírito os impelia que falassem.


  1. João 14:21-31

    Quem tem meus mandamentos e os observa é que me ama; e quem me ama será amado por meu Pai. Eu o amarei e a ele me manifestarei.

    Judas - não o Iscariotes – lhe diz: "Senhor, por que Te manifestas a nós e não ao mundo?" .Respondeu-lhe Jesus: "Se alguém me ama, guardará a minha palavra, e a ele viremos e nele estabeleceremos morada.

    Quem não me ama não guarda as minhas palavras; e a palavra que ouvis não é minha, mas do Pai que me enviou. Estas coisas vos tenho dito estando entre vós.

    Mas o Paráclito, o Espírito Santo que o Pai enviará em meu nome, vos ensinará tudo e vos recordará tudo o que vos disse.

    Deixo-vos a paz, a minha paz vos dou; não vo-la dou como o mundo dá. Não se perturbe nem se intimide o vosso coração.

    Vós ouvistes o que vos disse: Vou e retorno a vós. Se me amásseis, alegrar-vos-íeis por eu ir para o Pai, porque o Pai é maior do que Eu.

    Eu vo-lo disse agora, antes que aconteça, para que, quando acontecer, acrediteis.

    Já não vos falarei muito, pois o príncipe do mundo vem; contra mim, ele nada pode, mas o mundo saberá que amo o Pai e faço como o Pai me ordenou. Levantai-vos! Partamos daqui!

  2. João 17:11-26

    Já não estou no mundo; e eu volto a Ti. Pai Santo, guarda-os em teu nome - este nome que me deste! – para que sejam um como nós. Quando Eu estava com eles , Eu os aguardava em teu nome, que me deste; guardei-os e nenhum deles se perdeu , exceto o filho da perdição, para cumprir-se a Escritura.

    Agora, porém, vou para junto de Ti e digo isto ano mundo, a fim de que tenham em si minha plena alegria.

    Eu lhes dei a tua palavra, mas o mundo os odiou, porque não são do mundo, como Eu não sou do mundo.

    Não peço que os tires do mundo, mas que os guarde do Maligno. Eles não são do mundo como Eu não sou do mundo.

    Consagra-os na verdade; a tua palavra é verdade. Como Tu me enviaste ao mundo, também Eu os enviei ao mundo.

    E, por eles, a mim mesmo me consagro para que sejam consagrados na verdade. Não rogo somente por eles, mas pelo que, por meio de sua palavra, crerão em mim: a fim de que todos sejam um. Como Tu, Pai, estás em mim e Eu em Ti, que eles estejam em nós, para que o mundo creia que Tu me enviaste.

    Eu lhes dei a glória que me deste para sejam um, como nós somos um: Eu neles e Tu em mim, para que sejam perfeitos na unidade e para que o mundo reconheça que me enviaste e os amaste como Tu me amaste.

    Pai, aqueles que me deste quero que, onde Eu estou, também eles estejam comigo, para que contemplem a minha glória, glória que me deste porque me amaste antes da criação do mundo.

    Pai justo, o mundo não Te conheceu, mas Eu Te conheci e estes também conheceram que me enviaste.

    Eu lhes dei a conhecer o Teu nome e lho darei a conhecer, a fim de que o amor com que me amaste esteja neles e Eu neles."

  3. 1 Coríntios 15:20-28

    Não, porém! Cristo ressuscitou dos mortos, primícias dos que adormeceram. Com efeito, visto que a morte veio por um homem, também por um homem vem a ressurreição dos mortos. Pois, assim como todos morrem em Adão, em Cristo todos receberão a vida.

    Cada um, porém, em sua ordem: como primícias, Cristo; depois aqueles que pertencem a Cristo, por ocasião de sua vinda. A seguir, haverá o fim, quando Ele entregar o reino a Deus Pai, depois de Ter destruído todo Principado, toda Autoridade, todo Poder. Pois é preciso que Ele reine, até que tenha posto todos os inimigos debaixo dos seus pés. O último inimigo a ser destruído será a Morte, pois Ele tudo colocou debaixo dos pés dele. Mas, quando Ele disser: "Tudo está submetido", evidentemente excluir-se-á aquele que tudo lhe submeteu, para que Deus seja tudo em todos.

  4. Apocalipse 3:1-3,12,16-19

Ao Anjo da Igreja de Sardes, escreve: Assim diz Aquele que tem os sete Espíritos de Deus e as sete estrelas. Conheço tua conduta: tens fama de estar vivo, mas estás morto. Torna-te vigilante e consolida o resto que estava para morrer, pois não achei perfeita a tua conduta diante do meu Deus. Lembra-te, portanto, de como recebeste e ouviste, observa-o, e converte-te! Caso não vigies, virei como um ladrão, sem que saibas em que hora venho te surpreender.

Quanto ao vencedor, farei dele uma coluna no templo do meu Deus, e daí nunca mais sairá. Escreverei sobre ele o nome do meu Deus e o nome da Cidade do meu Deus - a nova Jerusalém, que desde do céu, de junto do meu Deus - e o meu novo nome.

Assim, porque és morno ,nem frio nem quente, estou para te vomitar de minha boca. Pois dizes: sou rico, enriqueci-me e de nada mais preciso. Não sabes, porém, que és tu o infeliz: miserável, pobre, cego e nu.

Aconselho-te a comprar de mim ouro purificado no fogo para que enriqueças, vestes brancas para que te cubras e não apareça a vergonha da tua nudez, e um colírio para que unjas teus olhos e possas enxergar. Quanto a mim, repreendo e educo todos aqueles que amo. Recobra, pois, o fervor e converte-te!

  1. Apocalipse 5:9-14

Eles cantavam um canto novo: "Digno és Tu de receber o livro e de abrir os seus selos, pois foste imolado e, por teu sangue, resgataste para Deus homens de toda tribo, língua, povo e nação. Deles fizeste, para nosso Deus, uma realeza de sacerdotes, e eles reinarão sobre a terra."

Em minha visão ouvi ainda o clamor de uma multidão de anjos que circundavam o trono, os Seres vivos e os Anciãos – seu número era de milhões de milhões e milhares de milhares -, proclamando em alta voz: "Digno é o Cordeiro imolado de receber o poder, a riqueza, a sabedoria, a força, a honra, a glória e o louvor".

Ë ouvi toda criatura no céu, na terra, sob a terra, no mar, e todos os seres que neles vivem, proclamarem: "Àquele que está sentado no trono e ao Cordeiro pertencem o louvor, a honra, a glória e o domínio pelos séculos dos séculos!"

Os quatro Seres vivos diziam: "Amém!"; os Anciãos se prostraram e adoraram.

  1. Apocalipse 7:14-17

    Eu lhe respondi: "Meu Senhor, és tu quem o sabes!" Ele, então me explicou: "Estes são os que vêm da grande tribulação: lavaram suas vestes e alvejaram-nas no sangue do Cordeiro."

    É por isso que estão diante do trono de Deus, servindo-o dia e noite em seu templo. Aquele que está sentado no trono estenderá sua tenda sobre eles: nunca mais terão fome, nem sede, o sol nunca mais os afligirá, nem qualquer calor ardente; pois o Cordeiro que está no meio do trono os apascentará, conduzindo-os até às fontes de água da vida.

    E Deus enxugará toda lágrima de seus olhos."

  2. Apocalipse 12:1-8

    Um sinal grandioso apareceu no céu: uma Mulher vestida com o sol, tendo a lua sob seus pés e sobre a cabeça uma coroa de doze estrelas; estava grávida e gritava, entre as dores do parto, atormentada para dar à luz.

    Apareceu então outro sinal no céu: um grande Dragão, cor de fogo, com sete cabeças e dez chifres, e sobre as cabeças sete diademas; sua cauda arrastava um terço das estrelas do céu, lançando-as para a terra.

    O Dragão colocou-se diante da Mulher que estava para dar à luz, a fim de lhe devorar o filho, tão logo nascesse. Ela deu à luz um filho, um varão, que irá reger todas as nações com um cetro de ferro. Seu filho, porém, foi arrebatado para junto de Deus e de seu trono, e a Mulher fugiu para o deserto, onde Deus lhe havia preparado um lugar em que fosse alimentada por mil duzentos e sessenta dias.

    Houve então uma batalha no céu: Miguel e seus Anjos guerrearam contra o Dragão. O Dragão batalhou, juntamente com seus Anjos, mas foi derrotado, e não se encontrou mais um lugar para eles no céu.

  3. Apocalipse 14:1-7

    Tive depois esta visão: eis que o Cordeiro estava de pé sobre o monte Sião com os cento e quarenta e quatro mil que traziam escrito sobre a fronte o nome dele e o nome de seu Pai. E ouvi uma voz que vinha do céu, semelhante a um fragor de águas e ao ribombo de um forte trovão; a voz que eu ouvi era como o som de citaristas tocando suas cítaras. Cantavam um cântico novo diante do trono, dos quatros Seres vivos e dos Anciãos. Ninguém podia aprender o cântico, exceto os cento e quarenta e quatro mil que foram resgatados da terra. Estes são os que não se contaminaram com mulheres: são virgens. Estes foram resgatados dentre os homens, como primícias para Deus e para o Cordeiro.

    Na sua boca jamais foi encontrada mentira: são íntegros.

    Vi depois outro Anjo que voava no meio do céu, com um evangelho eterno para anunciar aos habitantes da terra, a toda nação, tribo, língua e povo.

    Ele dizia em alta voz: "Temei a Deus e tributai-lhe glória, pois chegou a hora do seu juízo; adorai aquele que fez o céu e a terra, o mar e as fontes."

    Apocalipse 19:7-8

    Alegremo-nos e exultemos, demos glória a Deus, porque estão para realizar-se as núpcias do Cordeiro, e sua mulher já está pronta: concederam-lhe vestir-se com linho puro, resplandecente" - pois o linho representa a conduta justa dos santos.

  4. Apocalipse 21:1-10

Vi então um céu novo e uma nova terra – pois o primeiro céu e a primeira terra se foram, e o mar já não existe. Vi também descer do céu, de junto de Deus, a Cidade santa, uma Jerusalém nova, pronta como uma esposa que se enfeitou para seu marido .Nisto ouvi uma voz forte que, do trono, dizia: "Eis a tenda de Deus com os homens. Ele habitará com eles; eles serão o seu povo, e ele, Deus-com-eles, será o seu Deus. Ele enxugará toda lágrima dos seus olhos, pois nunca mais haverá morte, nem luto, nem clamor, e nem dor haverá mais. Sim! As coisas antigas se foram!"

O que está sentado no trono declarou então: "Eis que faço novas todas as coisas. "E continuou: "Escreve, porque estas palavras são fiéis e verdadeiras." Disse-me ainda: "Elas se realizaram! Eu sou o Alfa e o Ômega, o Princípio e o Fim; e a quem tem sede Eu darei gratuitamente da fonte de água viva. O vencedor receberá esta herança, e eu serei seu Deus e ele será meu filho.

Quanto aos covardes, porém, e aos infiéis, aos corruptos, aos assassinos, aos impudicos, aos mágicos, aos idólatras e a todos os mentirosos, a sua porção se encontra no lago ardente de fogo e enxofre, que é a segunda morte."

Depois, um dos sete Anjos das sete taças cheias com as sete últimas pragas veio até mim e disse-me: "Vem! Vou mostrar-te a Esposa, a mulher do Cordeiro!"

Ele então me arrebatou em espírito sobre um grande alto monte, e mostrou-me a Cidade santa, Jerusalém, que descia do céu, de junto de Deus.

Apocalipse 22:20

Aquele que atesta estas coisas, diz: "Sim, venho muito em breve! "Amém! Vem, Senhor Jesus!

Eia, pois, advogada nossa, esses vossos olhos misericordiosos a nós volvei, e, depois deste desterro, mostrai-nos Jesus, bendito fruto do vosso ventre, ó clemente, ó piedosa, ó doce sempre Virgem Maria. Rogai por nós, santa Mãe de Deus, para que sejamos dignos das promessas de Cristo. Amém.

5. Memorare. "Lembrai-vos, ó piedosíssima Virgem Maria, que jamais se ouviu dizer que algum daqueles que têm recorrido à vossa proteção, implorado o vosso socorro e invocado o vosso auxílio, fosse por vós desamparado. Animado, pois, com igual confiança, a vós, ó Virgem, entre todas singular, como minha Mãe recorro; de vós me valho e, gemendo sob o peso dos meus pecados, me prostro a vossos pés. Não desprezeis as minhas súplicas, ó Mãe do Filho de Deus humanado, mas dignai-Vos ouví-las propícia e alcançar-me o que vos rogo. Amém."

8. Oração a São José. São José, guardião de Jesus e casto esposo de Maria, vós passastes vossa vida no perfeito cumprimento do dever. Vós sustentastes a Santa Família de Nazaré com o trabalho de vossas mãos. Protegei bondosamente aqueles que cheios de confiança se voltam para vós. Vós conheceis seus desejos, suas dificuldades, suas esperanças; e eles se voltam para vós porque sabem que vós os compreendereis e protegereis. Vós, também, conhecestes as provações, trabalhos e cansaços. Mas, mesmo no meio das preocupações da vida material, a vossa alma estava cheia de profunda paz e cantava a verdadeira alegria através de uma grande intimidade com o Filho de Deus a vós confiado, e com Maria, sua Mãe compassiva. Amém. —(Papa João XXIII)

Promessas de Nosso Senhor aos devotos do seu Sacratíssimo Coração (estas promessas devem ser lidas pelo líder das orações):

(1) Eu darei aos devotos do meu Coração todas as graças necessárias a seu estado.

(2) Trarei e conservarei a paz em suas famílias.

(3) Consolá-los-ei em todas as suas aflições.

(4) Ser-lhes-ei refúgio seguro na vida e principalmente na morte.

(5) Lançarei bênçãos abundantes sobre seus empreendimentos.

(6) Os pecadores acharão em meu Coração a fonte e o oceano das misericórdias.

(7) As almas tíbias tornar-se-ão fervorosas.

(8) As almas fervorosas elevar-se-ão em pouco tempo, a uma alta perfeição.

(9) A minha benção pousará sobre as casas em que se achar exposta e venerada a imagem do meu Sagrado Coração.

(10) Darei aos Sacerdotes o poder de tocar os corações mais endurecidos.

(11) As pessoas que propagarem esta devoção terão seus nomes inscritos para sempre em meu Coração.

(12) Eu te prometo na excessiva misericórdia do meu Coração que o meu Todo-Poderoso Amor concederá a todos que comungarem na primeira Sexta-feira de nove meses consecutivos a graça da penitência final; eles não morrerão o meu desagrado, nem sem receber os Sacramentos; o meu Coração será para eles um refúgio seguro naquele último momento.

10. Oração pelos Sacerdotes. "Senhor Jesus, Pastor-Chefe do Rebanho, nós pedimos no grande amor e misericórdia do Vosso Coração que atendais a todas necessidades dos Vossos Pastores-Sacerdotes em todo o mundo. Nós pedimos que o Senhor atraia de volta ao Vosso Coração todos aqueles sacerdotes que seriamente se extraviaram do Vosso caminho, que possais reacender o desejo de santidade nos corações daqueles sacerdotes que se tornaram mornos, e que continueis a dar aos Vossos Sacerdotes fervorosos o desejo da mais alta santidade. Unidos ao Vosso Coração e ao Coração de Maria, Vos pedimos que leveis este pedido ao Pai Celestial que vive na unidade do espírito Santo. Amém."

11. Oração por todos os membros dos Associados dos Pastores de Cristo "Querido Jesus, nós vos pedimos Vossas graças especiais para todos os membros dos Associados dos Pastores de Cristo. Continuai a iluminá-los quanto ao privilégio e responsabilidade especiais que o Senhor lhes concedeu como membros do Vosso movimento, Associados dos Pastores de Cristo. Atraia-os sempre para mais perto do Vosso Coração e do Coração de Vossa Mãe. Concedei-lhes que possam sempre mais compreender o amor tão grande e especial dos Vossos Corações por cada um deles individualmente. Dê-lhes a graça de corresponder ao Vosso amor e ao amor de Maria com um amor que lhes é próprio cada vez maior. Amém."

12. Oração pelo sucesso espiritual e financeiro do boletim informativo sacerdotal. "Pai, nós Vos pedimos Vossas bênçãos especiais sobre o boletim informativo sacerdotal, Pastores de Cristo. Nós Vos pedimos que o Senhor abra os sacerdotes-leitores às graças que o Senhor quereis lhes dar através deste instrumento escolhido de Vosso Filho. Nós, também, Vos pedimos que Vós providencieis pelas necessidades financeiras do boletim informativo e dos Associados dos Pastores de Cristo. Nós Vos pedimos por Jesus, no Espírito Santo, com Maria ao nosso lado. Amém."

13. Oração por todos os membros da família humana. "Pai Celestial, nós Vos pedimos Vossas bênçãos por todos os vossos filhos espalhados por todo o mundo. Cuidai de todas as suas necessidades. Nós Vos pedimos a vossa ajuda especial por aquelas pessoas marginalizadas, por todos que são negligenciados e esquecidos. Unidos a vossa Mãe Maria, nós Vos queremos fazer este pedido por Jesus e no Espírito Santo. Amém."

14. Oração a São Miguel e aos nossos Anjos Guardiães.

"São Miguel Arcanjo, defendei-nos na batalha. Sede nossa salvaguarda contra as maldades e armadilhas do demônio. Que Deus o repreenda, nós humildemente Vos pedimos, e vós, príncipe das milícias celestes, pelo poder de Deus, lançai no inferno Satanás e todos os outros espíritos malignos que andam pelo mundo procurando a ruína das almas. Amém."

"Anjo de Deus, meu querido guardião, a quem o amor de Deus me confiou, esteja hoje e sempre ao meu lado para me iluminar e guardar, governar e guiar. Amém."

16. Ato de consagração ao Coração de Jesus e Imaculado Coração de Maria.

"Senhor Jesus, Pastor-Chefe do Rebanho, eu me consagro ao vosso Sacratíssimo Coração. Do vosso coração traspassado a Igreja nasceu, a Igreja que Vós me chamaste, como membro dos Associados dos Pastores de Cristo, a servir de maneira muito especial. Vós revelastes o Vosso Coração como símbolo do Vosso Amor em todo os aspectos, incluindo o Vosso Amor especialíssimo por mim, que Vós escolhestes como Vosso companheiro neste trabalho importante. Ajude-me sempre a vos amar em retorno. Ajude-me a dar-me inteiramente a Vós. Ajude-me sempre a dar minha vida pelo amor a Deus e ao próximo. Coração de Jesus, eu coloco a minha confiança em Vós".

"Querida e Bendita Virgem Maria, eu me consagro ao Vosso Coração Imaculado e Maternal, este Coração que é um símbolo de Vossa vida de Amor. Vós sois a Mãe do meu Salvador. Vós sois também, minha Mãe. Vós me amais com um Amor especial como membro dos Associados dos Pastores de Cristo, um movimento criado pelo Vosso Filho como poderoso instrumento de renovação da Igreja e do mundo. Em retorno de Amor, eu me dou inteiramente ao Vosso Amor e proteção maternais. Vós seguistes Jesus perfeitamente. Vós sois a sua primeira e mais perfeita discípula. Ensinai-me a Vós imitar neste revestir-se de Cristo. Sede minha intercessora materna, através do Vosso Coração Imaculado, para que eu possa ser conduzido a uma união sempre mais íntima com o coração traspassado de Jesus, o Pastor-Chefe do Rebanho."
