1 Peter 5: 1-4
I urge the elders among you, as a fellow-elder myself and a witness to the sufferings of Christ, and as one who is to have a share in the glory that is to be revealed: give a shepherd's care to the flock of God that is entrusted to you: watch over it, not simply as a duty but gladly, as God wants; not for sordid money, but because you are eager to do it. Do not lord it over the group which is in your charge, but be an example for the flock. When the chief shepherd appears, you will be given the unfading crown of glory.
R. They taught sitting down
Jesus sat and taught
R. They should not use their position for prestige
but do it to serve God
like Christ who gave His life serving
Doing of Penance
We teach the Gospel message
how we teach in our life
Jesus was like Jeremiah, but so
Peter objected to Jesus suffering
Jesus said "get behind me satan"
The Church is a visible society
The Father called the Church to carry
on the work of His Son
The Holy Father is the Vicar
of the Church
The Holy Father holds up the sign of
The Bishops are appointed by
the Holy Father
They are to be united with the pope
The Chief Shepherd of the Flock is Jesus
The pope is the witness of love
and charity as Vicar of
the Church today
The Church is not a democracy
We pray to the Lord, Our Chief Shepherd
Psalm 23: 1-6
Yahweh is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
In grassy meadows he lets me lie.
By tranquil streams he leads me
to restore my spirit.
He guides me in paths of saving justice
as befits his name.
Even were I to walk in a ravine as dark as death
I should fear no danger, for you are at my side.
Your staff and your crook are there to soothe me.
You prepare a table for me
under the eyes of my enemies;
you anoint my head with oil;
my cup brims over.
Kindness and faithful love pursue me
every day of my life.
I make my home in the house of Yahweh
for all time to come.
Matthew 16: 13-19
When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi he put this question to his disciples, Who do people say the Son of man is? And they said, Some say John the Baptist, some Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets. But you, he said, who do you say I am? Then Simon Peter spoke up and said, You are the Christ, the Son of the living God. Jesus replied, Simon son of Jonah, you are a blessed man! Because it was no human agency that revealed this to you but my Father in heaven. So I now say to you: You are Peter and on this rock I will build my community. And the gates of the underworld can never overpower it. I will give you the keys of the kingdom of Heaven: whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven; whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.
From Tell My People
Jesus: "My beloved priest-companion, I have allowed you to experience in extraordinary fashion the riches contained in My Heart and My Mother's Heart. I desire that you tell all My people about these riches. I desire that My people consecrate themselves to My Sacred Heart and to Mary's Immaculate Heart. My people are living in the beginnings of the age of the Two Hearts.
"After the time of the purification is completed, this new era of the Church and the world will become firmly established. This era will be characterized by the triumph of the Immaculate Heart and the reign of My Sacred Heart. All those who consecrate themselves to My Heart and to My Mother's Heart will help to establish this glorious new age. I am Lord and Master. Please listen to My urgent request. Within Our Hearts you will experience the love and security, the peace and the joy, which you all desire. I love My people with a tremendous love, and in My love I give them this message!"
Work to Make Your World Better
Jesus: "My beloved companion, remind My people of their responsibility toward the world. They have a duty to try to make this a better world for all to live in.
"Today there is much which is wrong with the world. Sin covers the face of the earth. Sins of all kinds blemish the goodness of My Father's creation.
"However, My Mother and I are increasingly gathering our forces for the battle against Satan and his followers. We are more and more forming Our followers to wage the battle to win back that part of the world dominated by Satan's influence. We are forming our followers in the ways of love. We are forming Our followers with the grace which flows from the bosom of My Father, through My Heart, given in the Holy Spirit, and distributed through the intercession of the maternal and Immaculate Heart of Mary.
"We are forming Our followers to give themselves in the greatest love for God and neighbor. We are bringing them ever more closely to Our Hearts so that they may draw from the flames of love of My Heart and Mary's Heart! The more My followers dwell in Mary's Heart and My Heart, the more they are enlightened and strengthened to give themselves for the salvation of the world.
"I am Lord and Master. I ask all to follow Me and My Mother to help us bring forth the great age of love and peace for the world. This age will emerge after the phase of purification has been completed. This age will be characterized by the triumph of Mary's immaculate Heart and the reign of My Sacred Heart. In this great new age, soon to come, My people will love and praise My Father, with Mary and through Me and in the Holy Spirit, as never before!
"I love My people with a tremendous, burning love, and in this love I give them this message!"
Reflection: The world belongs to Christ. St. Paul tells us about this:
As he is the Beginning, he was first to be born from the dead, so that he should be first in every way, because God wanted all perfection to be found in him, and all things to be reconciled through him and for him, everything in heaven and everything on earth, when he made peace by his death on the cross (Colossians 1:18-20).
Since the world belongs to Christ, we, who are His followers, must have a great love for the world as created and redeemed by God. We must labor through our participation in the Mass and through all our other prayers and good works to more and more help the Christic image of the world to shine forth in ever greater splendor. This is our duty and our privilege. Out of love for God and neighbor, let's resolve to get on with the task!

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."
- Message from Jesus to Father Edward J. Carter, S.J., Founder, as given on July 31, 1994,
feast of Saint Ignatius Loyola, Founder of the Society of Jesus (The Jesuits)
R. We all wear lots of hats it can be mother,
teacher, wife, messenger, grandma
I went to McDonalds and the lady was very
'other' focused, confidently and sincerely she
was authentic, genuine from the heart She said
How are you, sweetly and confidently then she
said with the same confidence and love as if
she really loved me "You have a great day,
Love from the heart genuine, authentic
Fr. Pasquini did a book Authenticity
R. Mary was holding Jesus on the front
Mary, sinless, the perfect handmaid of the Lord
The book talked about us
Our relationship with Father, Son and Holy Spirit
our relationship in great oneness
Love union with Divinity
Of the heart
Then I taped reading it on the ocean
It was beautiful
First I saw the waves coming in and
out over the sand
New water new sand
In and Out
How the rain cleanses the air and earth and
Being in one's heart
Not a heart filled up like the corroded
artery the stuffed basement etc.
I got to the point I didn't have room
for nothing in my house then another
bookcase then that's full then it starts
being out in the room - etc.
Look at Jesus born in a stable no
room for Jesus in the Inn
He had to go to a stable
Do we have room in our hearts for Jesus
or are the rooms of our hearts filled
with unforgiveness and debris we stuffed
Like I stuffed old treasures in my house
Let it go like the ocean coming in
and going out
It rained so bad here yesterday the water
was sitting on the grass, by the
The rain waters things and cleanses
God has us here to help each other to
put things in order, in love according
to God's will
Love means giving
At the time of Noah the flood gates of
heaven opened and it rained 40
days and 40 nights
God wanted to cleanse the earth of the
Jesus fasted 40 days
Rain, water is used to show purifying
God made a covenant with Noah
Genesis 9: 8-17
God spoke as follows to Noah and his sons, I am now establishing my covenant with you and with your descendants to come, and with every living creature that was with you: birds, cattle and every wild animal with you; everything that came out of the ark, every living thing on earth. And I shall maintain my covenant with you: that never again shall all living things be destroyed by the waters of a flood, nor shall there ever again be a flood to devastate the earth.
And this, God said, is the sign of the covenant which I now make between myself and you and every living creature with you for all ages to come: I now set my bow in the clouds and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth. When I gather the clouds over the earth and the bow appears in the clouds, I shall recall the covenant between myself and you and every living creature, in a word all living things, and never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all living things. When the bow is in the clouds I shall see it and call to mind the eternal covenant between God and every living creature on earth, that is, all living things.
That, God told Noah, is the sign of the covenant I have established between myself and all living things on earth.
R. We see frozen water or snow that looks
beautiful it comes quiet
but Sunday it came as hail
Sunday morning it hailed at my house
The day before it was beautiful
Our days creep on in petty pace
light, darkness, struggles, joys,
but we want to pray and live to do God's
will in that lies our peace
To let go and not rush things for our schedule,
but to do God's will do it in His
timing not try to force a schedule
our schedule on somebody doing God's
will we can try to force them to move in our
will and not God's, just because we are
bored or we want things settled
Causing conflict drives away peace
somebody wanting their schedule,
in their time etc.
Jesus showed me a vision of His Heart
December 17, 1991
R. 5 years to the day Mary appeared in
rainbow color on the building
He called the first 17th meeting
February 17, 1994
The heavens can open with God's grace
pouring out on a barren, hungry
The great flood Noah was preparing
for came on the second month
the 17th day
Genesis 7: 11
In the six hundredth year of Noahs life, in the second month, and on the seventeenth day of the month, that very day all the springs of the great deep burst through, and the sluices of heaven opened.
R. People want me to fit into their schedule
so they can feel settled
Never have I done things in the Shepherds of
Christ except on His schedule
Mary appeared the same day as the Red Rosary
book with rainbow left the printer
People took the people helping me to
do other things and Fr. Carter prayed and prayed
for the book somebody else finally
helped me and the book left the
printer December 17, 1996 the same day
Mary appeared on the building in Florida
shipped from the printers
R. When Mary appeared at the Holy Spirit Center
I was told to be there
at 6:30 3 times I
was late she didn't come
In heaven there is perfect obedience to
Jesus showed us He died on the cross
obeying the Father's will
Adam and Eve sinned we got into all this
disorder because of their sin
God showed us He wants obedience
in love to Him from His creatures
He took Saul out because he disobeyed
I speak of the message of light
Obedience to God's will
Living in love to God and others
To have unity, order in the world we
are all to do God's will
The person doing their own plan against
God's will brings disorder
to things, chaos
Being in the Heart of Jesus
Living in love
Will bring unity to this world
Era of peace
Song: Give Me Your Heart Oh Jesus
We need to
