December 6th Holy Spirit Novena
Scripture selection is Day 6 Period I.

The Novena Rosary Mysteries
for December 6th are Glorious.


Jesus speaks:      Awake oh sleeper arise from the dead for
                                your Savior is come

                                He has rained down His mercy and
                                    quieted an ailing earth

                                Let your prayer on this 5th raise to
                                    the heavens

                                Let light be seen in all the dark corners
                                Let the feasting at the table be abundant
                                    as you gather at the table of the Lord

                                A light shines in the darkness and you
                                    cry out to your God
                                    Awake, oh sleeper, arise from the
                                        dead for your Savior has come
                                    And vindication has come to the earth
                                        You can hear the sound of the lyre
                                        and the sound of the flute
                                        play tunes to praise God and give
                                        glory to God
                                A Savior was born in Bethlehem
                                    on a cold winter night and the
                                    angels sang - on high
                                Glory to God in the highest and peace
                                    to His people on earth

                                A night rises to a new day and the sun
                                    shines above the waters to those
                                    who look for only darkness
                                    THEY SEE ONLY DARKNESS

                                For those fixed on My ways
                                    they see light --
                                    they see a new tomorrow
                                    they hear the whippoorwill sing
                                    the birds of the earth tweet joyously

                                Amid a cold night the Savior came in
                                    a stable laid on bare wood
                                    amongst the beasts of the earth

                                2000 years later - you were given a rope
                                    you ran and almost strangled yourselves
                                    I gave you the Eucharist, the priest
                                    My Church, My bride

                                Oh blind ones let me tell you stories
                                    now of the earth
                                    A man was crawling on a parched
                                        desert and after the heat had
                                        beat him, literally beat him
                                        flat to the ground and he felt
                                        little hope a bubbling
                                        spring, sprang up before him
                                        He saw the water, clearly, he thought,
                                        but it was coming from a mirage
                                        he was having He was literally
                                        dying of thirst

                                Now I put before you springs of
                                    living water and you do not see
                                    you are the thirsty souls of the
                                    earth longing for refreshment
                                    and yet your eyes are blinded
                                    blind folded and wrapped with
                                    such a dense cloth you see
                                    not the real spring before you

                                You reach for liquors and
                                    fine wines
                                    cokes of all sorts
                                    all leave your mouth
                                    there are billions of flavors
                                        of coffee now all
                                        types, sizes, consistencies
                                        and shapes

                                A man had a dry mouth
                                    My mouth was dry on the cross
                                        they gave Me vinegar
                                        dipped in

                                    Oh you have mixed up your own
                                        mouth drying potions
                                    you fail to go to the springs of new

                                    Oh you old in your fluid
                                        reach for the real refreshment
                                        to quench your thirst

                                Tell all of My Blue Books


December 4, 1994

Jesus speaks:  Do you know what it is to love someone and be treated coldly? Think of your most agonizing pain to your heart, think of Me loving so much those who totally neglected Me and hated Me to the point of death.

It is in understanding the agonies of My Heart that you understand My immense love. Love gives unconditionally, love gives, love does not exist to receive only. It is in giving that you receive, but love gives.

Unconditional Love:

Sacred Heart with Cross and Fire

Do you give this way? The heart is a symbol of love!

My love burned for those who persecuted Me. You, My child, see My Heart open without the cross and crown of thorns -- My Heart is open to the point it is overflowing with fire. It is the hour of My greatest mercy and My greatest love. I pour the open furnace of My divine love upon you. You are saturated by My love --divine love, I give to you!

I wait, I watch, I want the love of My beloved souls!

You hold personal love letters from Me to My beloved ones concerning this tremendous love. If the whole world does not believe, I want you to believe, how I, Jesus, love you this day. It is in your believing you will be drawn ever closer into the abyss of My love for you. You were tired, you are being tested as My soldier of love. Love is unconditional, love gives, love has itself rooted in God's love. He is the source. All other roads to love are second to His divine love. Oh, divine love, burning love, coming from My open Heart and you cry and run to this world.

Rita, Rita, I write to be heard. I want these messages to circulate now. The delays will hold up the hearts that are dying for My love.

Hearts are cold and hard and need to know My divine love. I beg you to take Me seriously. You are the apostles to spread the devotion to My Heart. I beg you to circulate these letters of My love. Every day the Eucharist is attacked more and more --- I am referred to as a "symbol".

My true presence is attacked. People do not believe. Children are being taught the Eucharist is only a symbol.

Every book is different. They need to circulate for the priests and sisters, they need to circulate for My faithful loved ones, they need to be published.

I write to be heard. These messages are important to spread the devotion to My Heart. I beg you. They are important to understanding My relationship with My Mother. To hold up these books is to hold up the messages on the two Hearts. I beg you to circulate all the books. The fourth book is on the two Hearts and deep union, but the fifth book is a book of such deep love and understanding into My Sacred Heart.

I beg you to spread these messages -- all the messages. I will provide all money to publish books, three, four and five. The money is given so the proceeds from the books and songs can go to Shepherds of Christ. These books are needed for this ministry. People in the chapters need to read these books. I am asking you to take Me seriously. I write these messages for My beloved souls. I write these messages to spread devotion to My Heart and My Mother's Heart. The books are on disks and the money is provided. If you want your people to grow close to My Heart, you will publish these books of My deepest love. I beg, I ask, I plead, I am ignored. I am Jesus, your beloved Savior. I am thirsting for the love of souls. The Eucharist is being attacked. I remain with you in My deepest love. To hold up these messages is to hold up hearts that would know My love. I yearn, I thirst, I long for the souls to come to Me.

I am Jesus. I beg you to spread these messages which lead to My Sacred Heart, from My Sacred Heart, for My Sacred Heart, through My Mother's Heart. My Heart will triumph with the greatest love, it is through Mary's Heart many will turn to Me. These messages are written from Me and My Mother to spread devotion to Our Hearts. It is in the rosary many will turn their hearts to such love. These messages are written from the Heart of My tender Mother and Myself. I beg you to spread these letters.


December 2, 1994 - On First Friday

Messenger: He told me to go to the tabernacle and pray for three hours between 12:00 and 3:00.

Everyone was so excited about Christmas and Jesus was giving me intense experiences into His Passion.

I had heard Him scourged at the pillar and experienced this as if I was present while they scourged Him and heard the sounds during the night as He was in the garden. Again it was as if I were present. After Communion on December 2, I felt as if I could feel blood run down my face and I was so connected to His crowned head.

On December 2, when I received this message I heard the wind blow and saw the cross against the darkened sky. I saw Him hanging, literally hanging from the cross. He was not hanging straight as on the pictures but humped over, sliding down the cross. I do not know how to express this. I only know He was not hanging straight as I see Him on most crucifixes. He looks so in tact on the crucifixes on our walls. He did not look like that.


December 3, 1994 - First Saturday

Before the Tabernacle

Jesus speaks:  I cry out to you and My words fall on deaf ears. If you have ears, hear, for I truly speak here and no one pays Me heed. You lack faith, you lack trust, you do not know what I impart to you. You, in your busy lives here, no time to hear My words.

I want My letters to circulate to My beloved children. I ask, I beg, I am not taken seriously. I am the Almighty God, heed My words here.

I called out and My words fell on deaf ears. My Heart cried out from its depth and I was rebuked, for the blind do not see and the deaf do not hear. I call out by day. I plead by night. I write My letters of such love to all souls and I am ignored. I am the Almighty God. I write these letters for all. I ask and I plead - I want My messages read. I want them to circulate.

You do things your own way. You are willful. You want proof, you lack faith. I come in the night. As the night remains, you remain in darkness. You see not. You do not even read these for the light. You do not want to be here. You do not want to pray, you do not want to turn from your ways.

You are blind men in darkness. I call, I write, I plead for months. I beg for a year. I want messages published. I am calling out an urgent request to publish these messages, to read them yourselves. You will be sorry, for souls will be lost because of the hold-up. These messages are needed now. The Eucharist is under attack. You hold these letters of My love and True Presence. I beg you one more time to listen to Me!






Excerpt from December 3, 2004 message


    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.

Excerpts from December 4, 2004 message

Messenger:         Dear Jesus you are the King of our hearts
                                Again Jesus told me to go to the Cathedral
                                and light flashed from the left side of Jesus
                                over and over again and Jesus' mouth
                                moved as He appeared as Christ
                                the King.

                            He has been making me so aware of
                                His presence in the priest at
                                Mass and today He did not smile,
                                but His mouth moved as the
                                priest said the words at
                                the principle part of the Mass
                                the Light flashed over to the side
                                of His left hand where He
                                held the keys and Peter knelt.

                            It flashed across the front of Jesus
                                from left to right to His raised
                                hand, but to the side of  where Peter
                                was it was all lit up then
                                proceeded across Jesus to the
                                right side.

Messenger:                 I see the King, Jesus, appear
                                on His throne on First Friday and
                                First Saturday and First Saturday with flashes
                                of light from the keys in His hand
                                above Peter's head to His right

                                    It is odd I received the message
                                of the missing keys two days ago


Messenger:         Christ has been giving me a
                        very special realization how He
                        is the chief-priest and celebrant
                        at the Mass and I see Christ
                        yesterday I went to a second Mass
                        and it made me cry to see Christ
                        so present at the Mass in my
                        brother who said the Mass

                        Yesterday when Jesus appeared as
                            King at the Cathedral at the
                            5:00 Mass I knew He was
                            celebrating the Mass in the

                        The King, Our God - celebrates the
                            Mass in the priest and gives us
                            Himself in the Eucharist

                        Jesus is the Lamb of God
                            I saw His mouth move all
                            through the consecration
                            today and the gold-white light
                            flashed across Him as He
                            sat on His throne with
                            the keys in His left hand
                            above Peter's head as he
                            knelt and it flashed to the
                            right hand raised.

The Birth of the Full Ministries
of the Shepherds of Christ

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

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

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

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

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

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

- From In the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, Newsletter of Shepherds of Christ Associates
by Fr. Edward J. Carter S.J., Volume 1, No. 1, 1995. p. 2.
