Writing by Rita Ring

 

It is having peace
     with the past (the
     whole past) in loving
forgiving all and having a heart of love

Jesus: I died for those who put Me to death.

 

                It is love — from childhood to
                    now - not closed doors of horror —
                    running from them like a man hunted

                If people are unloving - every one who deals (under)
                    with them acts unloving

                    Home is in the Heart —

                    Those who have layers of an onion
                like a heart are clogged.

                    Our little heaven on earth is
                the heart.

                    Our role in the Shepherds of Christ is to take
                people to their hearts — there to unite
                with Jesus —

                    Dwelling in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary
                is our little heaven on earth —

                    If our hearts are clogged with
                shame, blame, unforgiveness we
                don't want to pray long hours —
                Where one can pray long hours forgiving,
                loving deep in our hearts — Another
                is mad because they can't get to
                their home — their heart — they are
                wounded, clogged, they want to get
                out of there to the mechanical stuff —
                A man with a stone heart, clogged with
                vice, lies, jealousies, sin, envy,
                possessiveness, lust cannot get to
                their heart —

                    At 5 years old my mom died — I learned
                about my heart that hurt — I learned about
                heaven — I learned about love with those
                in heaven — I had to use my heart — I
                learned about the invisible string between
                me and mom and Jesus and Mary — at 5 years old —
                I knew my heart — I knew my spirit —

                    We are made of body and soul — the devil
                wants people to close off their hearts, watch
                violent films — focus on getting what they
                think will make them happy outside of
                themselves —

                    The more we turn off our hearts to watch
                violence on T.V. — turning off the heart with
                the hard world — killing babies — not praying
                the rosary — not giving our hearts to Jesus
                and Mary — the more we feel bad — we were made
                for love — we feel good in giving —

                    God gives us our talents — then I watch
                someone give something to God and complain —
                What about money — God has given us
                gifts — but we can give a little mite to God
                and act mad — like who is God to think I
                can give my good money to Him.

                    Does not God gift us first with
                His gifts —

                    When our hearts are unloving of everyone
                God calls us to work with do we expect
                to be happy — we can see ourselves better
                than everyone — we can see ourselves perfect —
                when in fact we can be unforgiving, prideful,
                stingy, selfish and judge not by God's
                standards that is like Mary when she
                says

 

Luke 1: 46

  My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord
 

                Does our soul reflect the love of Jesus who
                    went to His death forgiving and loving
                    those who put us to death —

                The Church was born by Christ's pierced
                Heart — Blood and water came forth

                    The Church was born from the
                Heart of Christ — within Him — not
                something outside of Jesus like a bag
                of money —

                    The Church is to be centered on the love
                of the Heart of Christ —

                    To be loving in the heart one
                cannot be consumed with a hateful
                hard heart

                    From the pierced Heart of Christ
                the Church was born

                    When Mary appeared there were people
                in the Church mad — I couldn't understand
                how Mary appeared to me in the Church
                and people at the Prayer Service was mad —

                But they were not praying with me in
                the heart — they did not want to
                be there — they wanted to get outside in
                the world — their home they thought was
                outside themselves and they were unhappy —

                    A person with a hard heart is unhappy —
                They are clogging their connection with
                God — we don't connect with God on
                the telephone — or by the back fence —

                    We must beg God to help us take off the
                layers of unforgiveness in our hearts and
                blocked shame that keeps us from
                seeing clearly —

                    The heart pumps blood to the body —

                    Mary appeared at Fatima to tell
                us we need to go to her heart and Jesus'
                Heart —

                    A person that is mean and unloving can
                hurt us, but we still need to forgive
                and love or our heart feels clogged —

                    If our house had bats, termites —
                we wouldn't want to go home —

                    What about layers and layers of
                unforgiveness — hard heartedness — sin —
                lust — jealousy

                    The mission of the Shepherds of Christ in
                spreading the consecration is to lead people
                home to their own heart — more pure
                dwelling in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary

                    If we want to keep a vice or do
                it our way — we lie to ourselves
                about being like God wants and act
                willfully and get more blind — the
                more we sin — the more blind
                we are

 

                Hate and love does not
                co-exist

                If a person sees themselves above
                    others and others under them —
                    this is unloving — for they
                    are seeing the gifts given
                    to all, but see themselves
                    superior

                Faith — we believe God is true —
                    we believe things we do not
                    see —
                    When we get to heaven we will
                    see

                Noah believed
                Abraham believed
                Moses believed

                There is a God we believe —

 

Psalm 103: 1-10

Bless Yahweh, my soul, 
from the depths of my being, his holy name; 
bless Yahweh, my soul, 
never forget all his acts of kindness. 

He forgives all your offences, 
cures all your diseases, 
he redeems your life from the abyss, 
crowns you with faithful love and tenderness; 
he contents you with good things all your life, 
renews your youth like an eagle’s. 

Yahweh acts with uprightness, 
with justice to all who are oppressed; 
he revealed to Moses his ways, 
his great deeds to the children of Israel. 

Yahweh is tenderness and pity, 
slow to anger and rich in faithful love; 
his indignation does not last for ever, 
nor his resentment remain for all time;  
he does not treat us as our sins deserve, 
nor repay us as befits our offences.

     

                Jesus' Heart is tender and loving and
                    kind —

                God gives His love to unworthy
                    humans —

                He shows us His Sacred Heart
                    on fire for love of men

                God's overwhelming love

 

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.

     

                Jesus' beautiful love for us
                The Sacred Heart's love for us

 

Matthew 11: 25-30

At that time Jesus exclaimed, 'I bless you, Father, Lord of heaven and of earth, for hiding these things from the learned and the clever and revealing them to little children. Yes, Father, for that is what it pleased you to do. Everything has been entrusted to me by my Father; and no one knows the Son except the Father, just as no one knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.

'Come to me, all you who labour and are overburdened, and I will give you rest. Shoulder my yoke and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. Yes, my yoke is easy and my burden light.'

   

                Self-denial in Lent to focus
                    on God's love —

 

Ephesians 3: 18-19

with all God’s holy people you will have the strength to grasp the breadth and the length, the height and the depth; so that, knowing the love of Christ, which is beyond knowledge, you may be filled with the utter fullness of God.

   

   

John 19: 31-37

It was the Day of Preparation, and to avoid the bodies’ remaining on the cross during the Sabbath—since that Sabbath was a day of special solemnity—the Jews asked Pilate to have the legs broken and the bodies taken away. Consequently the soldiers came and broke the legs of the first man who had been crucified with him and then of the other. When they came to Jesus, they saw he was already dead, and so instead of breaking his legs one of the soldiers pierced his side with a lance; and immediately there came out blood and water. This is the evidence of one who saw it—true evidence, and he knows that what he says is true—and he gives it so that you may believe as well. Because all this happened to fulfil the words of scripture: 

    Not one bone of his will be broken; 

  and again, in another place scripture says: 

    They will look to the one 

        whom they have pierced.

   

 

Ezekiel 34: 11-16

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

  

Romans 5: 5-11

and a hope which will not let us down, because the love of God has been poured into our hearts by the Holy Spirit which has been given to us. When we were still helpless, at the appointed time, Christ died for the godless. You could hardly find anyone ready to die even for someone upright; though it is just possible that, for a really good person, someone might undertake to die. So it is proof of God’s own love for us, that Christ died for us while we were still sinners. How much more can we be sure, therefore, that, now that we have been justified by his death, we shall be saved through him from the retribution of God. For if, while we were enemies, we were reconciled to God through the death of his Son, how much more can we be sure that, being now reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. What is more, we are filled with exultant trust in God, through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have already gained our reconciliation.

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.

December 3, 1994 - FIRST SATURDAY - Very important (excerpt)

Scourging at the Pillar

Messenger:  I see a dark night, I see Judas, he betrayed Jesus.

    Others stand about, but unexpected and so cruel is the first blow they give to Jesus, coming in the torch lighted night, a hard unexpected blow to His most precious face, a pushing of harsh instruments cold to His back as they tear His clothes and laugh, all so fast, no warning, the pushing, the poking, the anger, the hatred and He is He who is love. But the anguish to His most precious Heart, the men He loved, He loved them and they hit Him, so much pain to the Heart. The physical blows He suffered were nothing compared to the anguish to His Heart, the suffering to the emotions, to love and be hated.

Jesus:  I loved those men with the tenderest love and they hit Me so hard. Unexpectedly, blows all over My body and they laughed. Oh child how they laughed and made fun with big mouths filled with the poison of hate. Oh child what comes forth from the mouth when the heart is whelmed over in hate. Men do not know that the heart is the center for love. As your heart grows in love, your whole body operates with greater beauty, as your heart grows in hate your body operates in ugliness. My Heart forever knowing the peace and love of My Father. My face forever pure in all its love, but their faces hard and ugly, welded up from the hate in their hearts.

    The heart is the center for peace and harmony and love. The hearts runs the body on love. My soldiers have hearts of love. Their faces are filled with light, their mouths are pure and clean, their eyes are loving. Look at a man's face and you can see the reflection of his heart. His heart is the source of the beauty in the person. Light your face with the beauty of a clean heart. To adorn your flesh is useless, all beauty comes from a clean heart. Make your hearts pure and loving, your eyes will radiate with the purity from within. My Mother is the symbol of purity. She is most pure. Her face radiates her most pure heart.

Jesus:  My heart suffers such anguish for the hot and cold souls. Those who come and tell Me of their love and then go away and hate Me in their brothers. They pledge their love to Me and then in the next breathe hate Me by how they treat others. My Heart was in such anguish for the hot and cold souls for those who love and those who then hate Me. Oh My beloved ones do you know the ways of the heart? Do you know how to love with real love? Love is kind, love knows no bounds, love gives, love is giving. Love is not selfish. Love is to give good to the other. Is that complicated? Do you love or do you selfishly want for yourself? If you are selfish it is not love.

    Oh you are indeed blind, and what you need to see is not complicated. You can learn such technology, such complicated things in your minds, but you have left the simple concepts of loving from your hearts, behind.

    Love is not haughty, love is not for your self-promotion, love is pure and simple to give good to the other. Do you know anything about love? Your hearts are so cold. You do not come to Me with a heart of love. I want to be loved by My beloved souls. I long for the pure hearts to come to Me. Oh are you blind, My blind little children, Christmas is the season of giving love, but so little love is given. You have turned My birthday into an exchange of gifts, not love. You give to get for yourself. It is so simple, you are so blind.

    Come little children and purify your hearts. Some hearts are turning to stone and some selfish ones are allowing selfish minds to rule their lives. It is in knowing about the things of God that you are happiest. Make your hearts pure and watch your beauty grow. You will be beautiful when you love. Beauty comes from the heart; your clothes, your make-up, your hair does not make you beautiful, your heart makes your face shine.

    It is My life alive in you and My love within that shines on your face, that makes you beautiful. Shine with the love of God in your hearts. Give the gift of a loving heart this Christmas. Give the gift of love from your heart.

    Oh you tend to every detail and forget the King of Glory. He sits alone on His throne and you blind men see to every detail. Beauty is within. Beauty is in the eyes of the person, in their face, lighted with a loving heart.

    It is so simple, you are so blind.

Song: Teach Me to Love with Your Heart

   

                I believe in Mary's Message of Fatima

   

Excerpt from The Spirituality of Fatima

by Fr. Edward Carter, S.J.

 

July 13, 1917

    "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)
