December 3, 2004 - Feast of St. Xavier



Messenger:     My dear friends

    Today the Feast of St. Xavier,
First Friday, Jesus appeared to me
as the King on His Throne at the
Cathedral where He told me to go
to Church.  


    On December 5, 1996 - 
8 years ago Jesus appeared
to me at the point of death His
mouth moving, He was in excruciating
pain, I cried and could hardly stand

From a previous daily message:

I saw Him at the point of death on the cross 
December 5, 1996, after Mary appeared 500 times.

He hung, all battered, greatly weakened. His mouth moved very clearly. It seems that a man in His condition could not move His mouth to that extent.

Later in the rosary that night, He gave messages and said: "No one was listening."

    Today the Feast of St. Xavier,
First Friday, Jesus appeared to me
as the King on His Throne at the
Cathedral where He told me to go
to Church. 

   He was smiling and His
mouth moved and moved and moved.
He looked happy and the vision was
all aglow. He gave me a message to sit
in the first pew and He appeared
and talked about 20 minutes, He
was smiling.

wonderful from so many Cardinals, Bishops

it to so many priests. The next Newsletter

accepted the position to write the


       Please help us -- the
Newsletter on the Eucharist is

This is an urgent request from the Good Shepherd. The flock will become one when they have given their hearts to Jesus and Mary. Encourage all priests to pray the Shepherds of Christ prayers. Your world will be lighted with great light as the people of this earth pray these prayers.

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.

Isaiah 29: 17-24

Is it not true that in a very short time 
the Lebanon 
    will become productive ground, 
so productive you might take it 
    for a forest? 
That day the deaf 
will hear the words of the book 
and, delivered from shadow and darkness, 
the eyes of the blind will see. 
The lowly will find ever more joy 
    in Yahweh 
and the poorest of people 
    will delight in the Holy One of Israel; 
for the tyrant will be no more, 
    the scoffer has vanished 
and all those on the look–out for evil 
    have been destroyed: 
those who incriminate others 
    by their words, 
those who lay traps for the arbitrator 
    at the gate 
and groundlessly deprive the upright 
    of fair judgement. 
That is why Yahweh, 
    God of the House of Jacob, 
Abraham’s redeemer, says this, 
‘No longer shall Jacob be disappointed, 
no more shall his face grow pale, 
for when he sees his children, 
my creatures, home again with him, 
he will acknowledge my name as holy, 
he will acknowledge 
    the Holy One of Jacob to be holy 
and will hold the God of Israel in awe. 
Erring spirits will learn to understand 
and murmurers accept instruction.’


                        Sing:  Remember Your Love


Matthew 9: 27-31

As Jesus went on his way two blind men followed him shouting, ‘Take pity on us, son of David.’ And when Jesus reached the house the blind men came up to him and he said to them, ‘Do you believe I can do this?’ They said, ‘Lord, we do.’ Then he touched their eyes saying, ‘According to your faith, let it be done to you.’ And their sight returned. Then Jesus sternly warned them, ‘Take care that no one learns about this.’ But when they had gone away, they talked about him all over the countryside.


Isaiah 30: 19-21, 23-26

Yes, people of Zion living in Jerusalem,
you will weep no more.
He will be gracious to you 
    when your cry for help rings out;
as soon as he hears it, 
    he will answer you.
When the Lord has given you 
    the bread of suffering
        and the water of distress,
he who is your teacher will hide no longer,
and you will see your teacher 
    with your own eyes.
Your ears will hear these words 
    behind you,
‘This is the way, keep to it,’
whether you turn to right or left.

He will send rain 
    for the seed you sow in the ground,
and the bread that the ground provides 
    will be rich and nourishing.
That day, your cattle will graze 
    in wide pastures.
Oxen and donkeys that work the land
will eat for fodder wild sorrel,
spread by the shovel–load and fork–load.
On every lofty mountain, 
    on every high hill
there will be streams and water–courses, 
    on the day of the great slaughter
when the strongholds fall.
Then moonlight will be 
    bright as sunlight
and sunlight itself be 
    seven times brighter
—like the light of seven days in one—
on the day Yahweh dresses 
    his people's wound
and heals the scars of the blows 
    they have received.


Isaiah 35: 1-10

Let the desert and the dry lands 
    be glad, 
let the wasteland rejoice and bloom; 
like the asphodel, let it burst into flower, 
let it rejoice and sing for joy. 
The glory of Lebanon is bestowed on it, 
the splendour of Carmel and Sharon; 
then they will see the glory of Yahweh, 
the splendour of our God. 
Strengthen all weary hands, 
steady all trembling knees 
and say to the faint–hearted, 
‘Be strong! Do not be afraid. 
Here is your God, 
vengeance is coming, 
divine retribution; 
he is coming to save you.’ 
Then the eyes of the blind will be opened, 
the ears of the deaf unsealed, 
then the lame will leap like a deer 
and the tongue of the dumb sing for joy; 
for water will gush in the desert 
and streams in the wastelands,
the parched ground will become a marsh 
and the thirsty land springs of water; 
the lairs where the jackals used to live 
will become plots of reed and papyrus. 

And through it will run a road for them 
    and a highway 
which will be called the Sacred Way; 
the unclean will not be allowed to use it; 
He will be the one to use this road, 
the fool will not stray along it. 
No lion will be there, 
no ferocious beast set foot on it, 
nothing of the sort be found; 
it will be used by the redeemed.
For those whom Yahweh has ransomed 
    will return, 
they will come to Zion shouting for joy, 
their heads crowned with joy unending; 
rejoicing and gladness will escort them 
and sorrow and sighing will take flight.

Messenger:        I love the saints so very much.

                            St. Xavier is one of my favorite
                                saints, I know, I love him,
                                I love St. Ignatius.

                                Oh Divine Messiah come into
                            our hearts and fill our hearts
                            with fire for love of Thee –

                                At night fall - the rain had
                            ceased and the hopes of a brilliant
                            sunny day was in their hearts.
                            Sue and her family had flown to
                            Clearwater to lounge on the beach
                            and be so filled with joy on the
                            seashore and then it was days
                            of rain and their plans were hampered.

                                One part of the earth may
                            experience sun and the sunny skies,
                            warmth of the new day and another
                            part may have snow and coldness that
                            sends some to the houses very quickly
                            and off the streets.

                                On April 13, it is very unusual
                            to see snow in Indiana and Ohio –
                            after a long day of prayer in
                            China, we came out and there was the
                            beautiful soft snow – snowflakes as
                            big as silver dollars and oh so many and
                            they fell like this –––

Mary speaks:        Hearts come in all ways, some hearts
                            are hard, some are soft and supple
                            and full of love –

                            some like the cold day –
                            some like the warmth of the sun and the
                                golden glow of an Indian
                                summer sunset

Mary speaks:     When the lights flickers one knows that
                                the power may be threatened –
                                It is a sign something could get
                                shut off

                            The mountains have shown for you
                                creatures, for all these years,
                                in so much brilliant beauty –

Mary speaks:     On the back porch of a little cottage
                                there was an old, but sturdy rocking chair –
                                one of new taste may come and
                                replace it with an flamboyant
                                plastic chair –
                                but the little old man with
                                the white hair and white beard
                                may cry when he comes to sit as
                                he has sat for so many years
                                looking at the beautiful mountains
                                of Wyoming.



December 3, 2004 message continues

Mary speaks:     His thoughts were thoughts of so
                                many things on his old back
                                porch and his little old rocker
                                was his throne –

                            What one may treasure – another may
                                throw away as trash

Jesus speaks:    Come to Me – I want to take you
                                in My arms and love you so
                                deeply. I truly tell you of
                                My love in these messages –
                                I truly speak to you –
                                please spread My letters of
                                    love to the hungry souls –
                                I long to come to you in the
                                    Eucharist –
                                I want you to not fear and know
                                    I love you so much –
                                    Do the Father's will –
                                    obey the commandments
                                    Read My Word –
                                    I am God
