Words of Jesus to Members of
Shepherds of Christ Associates:
"My beloved priest-companion, I intend to use the priestly newsletter, Shepherds of Christ, and the movement, Shepherds of Christ Associates, in a powerful way for the renewal of My Church and the world.
"I will use the newsletter and the chapters of Shepherds of Christ Associates as a powerful instrument for spreading devotion to My Heart and My Mother's Heart.
"I am calling many to become members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. To all of them I will give great blessings. I will use them as instruments to help bring about the triumph of the Immaculate Heart and the reign of My Sacred Heart. I will give great graces to the members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. I will call them to be deeply united to My Heart and to Mary's Heart as I lead them ever closer to My Father in the Holy Spirit."

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."

To Love To Do His Will
Messenger: To love to do His will. This is where my peace lies. To love to do what He wills me to do. Jesus is love, He loved the Father, He loved to do His will. To have that connection with the Father, that we operate as He wills us to. To love to do His will because we become one in Him. To love God so much that we operate as He dwells within us. To let go of self and consciously be aware of the God within us that is operating through our being. To love as He loves in us, to be as He is in us, to put on Christ in all we do, to always comply to His will. As Christ loves all His precious ones, we love all His precious ones and become more united to Him. For as we act, He acts through us. Our life becomes a life rooted deeply in His life, rooted deeply in the love of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. A dying to the self to live in Him, to be the creation the Father intended us to be. So as I operate, it is no longer I who live, but He who lives in Me. To put on Christ in all our actions, to be one in Him in every interaction with my brothers, as I act, a surrendering to Him to operate my very being. It is, therefore, His work that He completes in me through my surrender to Him. He uses me, I give Him myself — He lives in me.
and if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead has made his home in you, then he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will give life to your own mortal bodies through his Spirit living in you.
...since I have come not to judge
but to save the world:
‘Do not imagine that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets. I have come not to abolish but to complete them.Matthew 5: 17
Jesus: For as I live and dwell in you, I operate through you in this world. I live in you, I love through you, I become one in you. You must surrender to Me. Surrender to Me and yield to the Spirit working in you leading you to be more likened to Me.
Oh is it so complicated or are you blind? You My children are blind many times. Pray for My grace within you. As you come and ask, I outpour My grace to you. I love you each so dearly and want to bring you to greater perfection in Me. Open yourself up to be molded by the Spirit into My image. You are a beautiful creation of My Father. You are so uniquely special, you are a creation that is loved dearly by My Father. Realize your preciousness to My Father and know His love for you, My Father's plan for you, to know the Father you come to Me. The Spirit leads you to such intimacy and love with God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. It is through the pure heart of My beloved Mother you will know Me so deeply. Come into My Heart through her heart, we are so closely united. It is in this union between Mother and Son that you will know Me so deeply. Our Hearts beat in the deepest love, as we dwell together in such oneness. Oneness with God is what your soul craves. It is in this awareness of this oneness you will experience such peace. It is in this oneness with the Holy Trinity through Mary's heart that your hearts will burn with Holy love. Our love is Divine love, our life is shared with you in a special way through baptism.
Come to My altar, come to My Church, come and be fed, as you live and breathe, I want to be one in you and live in you. I am Jesus, I long for your union with Me. Oh child, what more do I say, open your eyes and pray for vision.
