                February 23, 2010

                   Peter and Paul learned how to love — I love you — Jesus loves
                you, the Father loves you so much. He created all of us so uniquely
                to give love. Be holy — Be repentant — tell God you are sorry for
                your sins — Say: Oh my Divine God — I am so sorry for sinning — heal
                me God — help with my healing for this rupture because of my sin —
                Oh God sin takes me from You — I am sorry I have displeased
                you, Oh God forgive me, I am sorry, I love You, I do not
                want to sin again — help me to be faithful to You — give
                me strength God, to love You and others.

                    Let us speak the language of love — Let us love God so
                deeply — our Father loves us so much — He created us — See ourselves
                as a little child — Pray for our persecutors — Be one with
                the Mass all day — Praying to the Father — united to the Holy Sacrifice
                of the Mass - the sacrifice of Calvary - sacramentally made
                present - in the Holy Spirit —

                Christ already suffered for the sins of those who hurt us —
                    it is up to us to unite our suffering with our brothers,
                    to the suffering of Christ — to help bring that life of resurrection
                    in our lives to others —

                We are here to love — to live Christ's life, death and resurrection in our lives —
                    To identify our suffering with His who died for us. It is our job to help  
                    bring the life of resurrection to the world —

                As members of the mystical body of Christ we are one with
                    the Masses going on around the world —
                    We unite ever more to the Mass in our intimacy with God —
                    We live the life of resurrection —
                    We live united ever more in our whole lives with the Father,
                        Jesus, the Son, and the Holy Spirit
                    We love God so much — We seek for greater unity in Him

A City on a Hill Shines to the World

February 23, 1994 5:30 a.m.

Jesus: I am the light of the world. A city on a hill will shine to the world. You at the Center will be this city when you are filled to the brim with the love of Jesus. What power, what might, to have each person a personal spouse of Jesus Christ! This is the light to the darkened world. The love of Jesus radiates from the very being of those who love Him. What light when all together are lifted by His love abounding deep within their breasts!

    I am the Way, the Truth and the Life. My life is the life inside that cannot be contained. It is bursting and budding forth. My life is the real life. To possess the life of Christ within your breast! Such power! I am the city set on a hill that will stand united and shine to this world. You at this Center will be this city. You will be the true Center that places the mark on this world.

    The love of Christ, abounding deep within the breasts of all, will be the power and the might. Pray the Prayer for Union with Jesus. I will operate in the hearts of all there and minister to My sick world. I am the Heart of Jesus. I am on fire with love of each and every soul. When My love is found in all the hearts there, the light of God will shine to this world!

    You are the city, set on a hill, that shines to the darkened world. I will light the world with the love of Jesus that shines in the hearts of those who are fed there. My light is so bright. My power is endless. You are the light to the dark world. You contain the mighty medicine to bring My sick ones to Me. You will bring so many back to Me and My intense love, burning so brightly for all!

    I am the power. I am the might. He who abides in Me will have the light of life. I give Myself to you that you will live. You will radiate My presence from your very being. My light is the brightest light. I will live in the hearts of all who come to you for their feeding. Enkindle in them the love for My most Sacred Heart. It is on fire for love of you. It cannot be contained. It will live in all hearts who come to you to be fed.

    You are the key to enkindle this burning love of Jesus in the hearts of so many. Many will know Jesus through your love of Me. Read these letters every day for I am truly speaking to you here. I love each child so dearly and want to have an intimate union with that child. Teach all about the burning love of Jesus. Read My messages with your heart on fire so you can tell all of My ardent love for them.

    I long to be close to them. I am a person. I am God, on fire for love of My people. Bring all to the ardent love of Jesus. Mary is by My side constantly. Where I am, she is there. She wants all to be led to My ardent, longing love. Teach all about My love. Fill them so they are overflowing in their hearts. This is the mighty medicine. It is My letter of intense, ardent love for My people.

    I am truly here, little ones. I am Jesus, Son of the Living God. I will live strongly in the hearts of all who come to you. You will be the key. Focus on your intense love of Me. Read My letters as a cookbook for intimacy with Me. My love waits for each person and I tell you here how to be close to Me. I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus on fire for love of you. I am longing for you to come and be with Me in silence. I will give you all you need.

    I am the Alpha. I am the Omega. I am your all. I am God, one, true and magnificent, and I come to you with ardent love in Holy Communion and in the tabernacle. I am present, Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity. I am waiting. Our love affair waits and it depends on you. I am there and I am waiting. You keep us apart.

    Tell them how I long for them and have all they need. The love of Christ will light their city. You will stand as the lighted city in darkness. My love will be that by which you light this dark world. Oh, such power, such might! The love of God will reign in the hearts of all you touch. You are My vessel to draw this world to the love of Jesus.

    Read and study My letters and be taught about My ardent love. I am Jesus Christ and I am teaching you about My love on fire for all. Come and be powered by the hand of God. My love will rock the world off its rocker when it reigns in the hearts of those who come to you. I love you so! You are My beloved. I will use you to light My dark world. You will shine as candles in the darkest night and you will be the instruments I use to light their wicks. I am God and I love them so dearly!

    This is My love for all. Power and might will shine forth on the land. I am the brightest light. Look into the light for the light. Look into the arms of Jesus. I will light this world through you. Alleluia. And the angels sang and the choirs of heaven were heard for the earth proclaimed the Love of Jesus. Alleluia

Picture of the Sacred Heart of JesusI Died for You

February 23, 1994

Jesus: I want this emotion in the letter I told you to write. I, Jesus, Son of God, talk to you with such emotion! I am He Who died a brutal death for love of you. I died for you! I love you this much, to give My Life! Yet you couldn't even write when I asked you. You must do exactly as I say. I do not want you ever to say no to Me!

I have such emotion! I am telling you how I died a brutal death and you, My child, did not write for Me! What more can I do? What more do they want? You put others before Me or you would do as I command. I want you to do as I tell you every moment.

I am the Lord. I am the Son of God. Such emotion I let you feel for My death. I died. I am a person. I was human and I died for you. Think of yourself giving your life for someone and they do not care. What can I do to shake you? What more can I say? I am here and I am loving you and pleading with you to listen to Me with this emotion that God is telling you. I am Jesus. I died for you. I gave My life for you and do you even listen, My little sweet one? You didn't want to write it for My children. When I give you a command, you write. When I say do, you do. Selflessness! I am pushing you because I need your total surrender. Do not ever deny My writing to My loved ones. You have a responsibility. I don't care where you are when I talk. I am God and I talk to you. I am so present to you.

Listen. I need your selflessness. I need your surrender. I need your life, given for love of Me and Me alone. I need you to be the light that shines on the hill, that does not go in and out but is constant in My love. I need your commitment. I need your attention at every moment. I am feeding you My words every moment on paper and in your hand. You must obey Me exactly as I command. No questions, only action. I want action. Now! You write when I say write. I don't care where you are. You worry not for others. I am giving you the mighty medicine. Would you tell the doctor to wait? I am God and I do not ever want to wait while you play a safe game with Me. When I say do something, I want you to do it. You are My beloved and I am filling you with fire.

I am pushing you to do that which I need done. Do not ever stop to look around. Keep your focus on Me and My commands for you. I am using you every moment. I must be able to count on your constant consent to do My will immediately! I am calling you to this work and I want you to comply. I love you ardently. I am so full of love for you. Focus on this and this alone. I am Who am. I am God, child. Do not ever hesitate. Do not doubt or think. You must act as I act in you or My work will not be done.

Be selfless about My commands. You will do My work. You will spread My words of love and create emotion with My songs and I will use you to bring My flock to My love. I love every soul! You must spread My love.

Note: (Meditating on the Crucifixion) Going to Mass at the seminary at 8:00 a.m. was rushed. He said to me, "Where are you going, child. Do you not feel My presence with you?" A calm came over me. Then He started lamenting how He died for us, how He is a true person and He loves us so much. He said, "I died for you."

R. He gave His life for us. He is the little lamb led to the slaughter out of love for us. He said, "I need you to do this work now and I am pushing you." He was so upset! He died for us. He loves us so much as to give His life.

He begged me to spread His love, to tell others how He, bloodied, bruised and beaten, gave us His life.

Jesus: I am God. I am God. I died. Spread My love now! Now! Now! Now! Now! I am begging you not to hold back! Read these letters now, read and learn about My love. I beckon you to speak of My love. Shout it from the high roof. Proclaim it in the cities. Jesus Christ died for love of you and He is risen! I am He Who is God and I died for you!

Listen and preach My love and emotion here. Priests will create little cities, little cities in each church to spread the light of Christ to this sick world. Each priest can create his own little city, a powerhouse of God's love. God has all the power. His power is endless. It never runs out. It is might. You have no power except through Him. Churches filled with the intimate love of Jesus will be powerhouses.

I am God, My little ones. God can do all things. I can make your cities light up the darkness. I am the Way, the Truth, the Life. I am the light of life. I am God! I can do all things. I want to act in you. You need to be in constant union with Me. My priests, you need to be selfless. My soul and yours are one. I want to act in you.

Hold not back. Pray the Prayer for Union with Me.

Responses from Priests

32. Just a small devotion to let you know I enjoy reading Fr. Joe's homilies. God bless you and your ministry in 2010. 12/23/2009 - priest - Kentucky 

33. Thank you for Guiding Light by your brother, Fr. Joseph Robinson. I greatly appreciate this gift and I thank you very much. This "Feed My Soul" is based on the Sunday Gospels of Year C — Do you still have spare copies for Years A and B? What do they sell for? Thank You. Enjoy the Christmas Season. 12/2009 - priest - Florida 

34. Please accept this donation to help in some small way the apostolate you have so devotedly engaged in for the glory of God and the spiritual growth of his people. 2009 – priest - Ohio

35. Greetings from Ohio. And Merry Christmas! Thanks for the book of Fr. Joe's homilies. I've used it already today in my own homily. I remember you from the Athenaeum Chorale. 12/20/2009 – priest - Ohio

36. Greetings! Last year you sent me the book – Guiding Light: Focusing on the Word. It is a series of homilies by Fr. Joe Robinson. What a wonderful gift. I have used it for all my homilies and spiritual reading. It has been a blessing for me and even more – a blessing for my parish. I am very grateful for this gift. – 10/22/2009 – priest - Florida

37. Enclosed, please find a check for the book entitled, “Guiding Light: Feed My Soul”, by Fr. Joe Robinson. I enjoy his homiletic reflections very much. They are very helpful and spiritually uplifting. Thank you for sending the book so quickly. I received it in just a few days following my order, just in time for the First Sunday of Advent. I would be very interested in receiving the Cycle A edition when it is in print. Thanks again for all your help. 2009 – priest - Ohio  

38. Thank you so much for your gift book, “Guiding Light”. I’ve read a number of homilies, and they are really good. However, the book has already led me into sin! You see, I’ve “stolen” some of Fr. Robinson’s stories and incorporate them into my own homilies! Many blessings, and I will certainly be purchasing items from you. 2009 – priest – Ohio

39. Thank you for remembering me and for your kindness. Be assured of continual prayers for you and your family. 2009 – priest – Ohio

48. Thank you for the gift of the book of homilies and especially all you do spiritually for the Church and for priests. We need more emphasis on the spiritual aspects of the priesthood, along with all the other things priests are asked to do.

61. I was so happy and overjoyed to receive this past Advent the best Christmas present – one that I had wished for – in your brother’s Cycle c homilies – Guiding Light. The book cover is beautiful and when Cycle B ended I said to myself I wish I had the new cycle, but alas, I didn’t know where I was going to get it…Then like an answer to prayer, it was in the mail! I was already missing his homilies at the beginning of December until the book arrived. I love the cover and I love the work you are doing. In the Year of the Priesthood this is certainly a welcome gift and presentation to the priests. And for me the best Christmas gift. And it came free!! The cover is great, the print is nice and big and easy to read, and the thoughts, of course, are great. One week Fr. Robinson talked about how long he was in a parish and changes, and I could use that talk myself. So the Scripture, reflections, homilies, and personal antidotes are perfect. With your generous gift you have certainly made it a blessed and Merry Christmas for me. Thank you for your prayers before the Blessed Christmas and be assured of our prayers every week when we pull out “Guiding Light – Feed my Soul” for encouraging words for our parishioners here. 1/10/2010 – priest - Florida  

62. Thank you! Great work – great book! 1/2010 – priest – Washington DC 

63. Thank you for your letter and the book of your brother’s homilies, as well as for all your prayers. You and everyone at Shepherds of Christ Ministries are doing wonderful work. 1/18/2010 – priest – Washington DC

64. Hey I just wanted to call you and say blessings – this is simply just an affirmation call. I got in the mail a while back Guiding Light – the Word Alive in Our Hearts – Homilies by Fr. Joe Robinson. I have to admit this has been one of the most edifying pieces of literature I have received in my hands in a long time. Fr. Joe’s homilies are inspiring, they are just wonderful. They are absolutely wonderful. I would love to hear this man preach. I mean that assuming that from what I saw – He’s still around – 40 years – it says on the back here – I haven’t read it thoroughly.  – it even has a song – the song about priests! What an edifying thing that Christ has given to you – the Holy Spirit given to you. I just want to say from one of the priests out here in the trenches along with the great laity of the Church – Thank you! What a blessing this has been to me. So I would love to integrate this in some how, and thank you for the mission of the Shepherds of Christ. What an edifying thing for us today. So no need to call back, but I would just give you my cell phone number. And there’s no need to call back or anything. You got tons on your plate already and everything. But I mean these were just blessed homilies – I would like to see if there is a continuing of Fr. Joe’s homilies and the series and stuff. So anyway – my opinion for whatever it counts. Blessings to you this Christmas season and may the Blessed Mother and all the angels and saints just fill you with Christ’s presence. Talk to you later. – 12/30/2008 – priest - Kentucky

Shepherds of Christ Associates



Chapter Meeting Prayer Format

The prayer format below should be followed at chapter meetings of Shepherds of Christ Associates. All prayers, not just those said specifically for priests, should include the intention of praying for all the needs of priests the world over.

1. Hymns. Hymns may be sung at any point of the prayer part of the meeting.

2. Holy Spirit Prayer. Come, Holy Spirit, almighty Sanctifier, God of love, who filled the Virgin Mary with grace, who wonderfully changed the hearts of the apostles, who endowed all Your martyrs with miraculous courage, come and sanctify us. Enlighten our minds, strengthen our wills, purify our consciences, rectify our judgment, set our hearts on fire, and preserve us from the misfortunes of resisting Your inspirations. Amen.

3. The Rosary.

4. Salve Regina. "Hail Holy Queen, Mother of mercy, our life, our sweetness, and our hope. To you do we cry, poor banished children of Eve. To you do we send up our sighs, our mourning, our weeping in this vale of tears. Turn, then, most gracious advocate, your eyes of mercy toward us and after this, our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of your womb, Jesus, O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary."

5. The Memorare. "Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your help, or sought your intercession was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto you, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother. To you I come, before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but, in your mercy, hear and answer me. Amen."

6. Seven Hail Marys in honor of the Seven Sorrows of Mary. Mary has promised very special graces to those who do this on a daily basis. Included in the promises of Our Lady for those who practice this devotion is her pledge to give special assistance at the hour of death, including the sight of her face. The seven sorrows are:

(3) The third sorrow: the loss of the Child Jesus in the temple (Hail Mary).

(4) The fourth sorrow: Jesus and Mary meet on the way to the cross (Hail Mary).

You supported the Holy Family of Nazareth with the work of your hands. Kindly protect those who trustingly turn to you.

10. Prayer for Priests. "Lord Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the Flock, we pray that in the great love and mercy of Your Sacred Heart You attend to all the needs of Your priest-shepherds throughout the world. We ask that You draw back to Your Heart all those priests who have seriously strayed from Your path, that You rekindle the desire for holiness in the hearts of those priests who have become lukewarm, and that You continue to give Your fervent priests the desire for the highest holiness. United with Your Heart and Mary's Heart, we ask that You take this petition to Your heavenly Father in the unity of the Holy Spirit. Amen"

11. Prayer for all members of the Shepherds of Christ Associates. "Dear Jesus, we ask Your special blessings on all members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. Continue to enlighten them regarding the very special privilege and responsibility you have given them as members of Your movement, Shepherds of Christ Associates. Draw them ever closer to Your Heart and to Your Mother's Heart. Allow them to more and more realize the great and special love of Your Hearts for each of them as unique individuals. Give them the grace to respond to Your love and Mary's love with an increased love of their own. As they dwell in Your Heart and Mary's Heart, abundantly care for all their needs and those of their loved ones. We make our prayer through You to the Father, in the Holy Spirit, with Mary our Mother at our side. Amen"

12. Prayer for the spiritual and financial success of the priestly newsletter. "Father, we ask Your special blessings upon the priestly newsletter, Shepherds of Christ.

13. Prayer for all members of the human family. "Heavenly Father, we ask Your blessings on all Your children the world over. Attend to all their needs.

United with our Mother Mary, we make this petition to You through Jesus and in the Holy Spirit."

14. Prayer to St. Michael and our Guardian Angels:

"St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, O prince of the heavenly hosts, by the power of God, cast into hell Satan and all the other evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen."

"Angel of God, my guardian dear, to whom God's love commits me here, ever this day be at my side, to light and guard, to rule and guide. Amen."

15. Pause for silent, personal prayer. This should last at least five minutes.

16. Act of consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

"Lord Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the flock, I consecrate myself to Your most Sacred Heart. From Your pierced Heart the Church was born, the Church You have called me, as a member of Shepherds of Christ Associates, to serve in a most special way. You reveal Your Heart as a symbol of Your love in all its aspects, including Your most special love for me, whom You have chosen as Your companion in this most important work. Help me to always love You in return. Help me to give myself entirely to You. Help me always to pour out my life in love of God and neighbor! Heart of Jesus, I place my trust in You!

"Dear Blessed Virgin Mary, I consecrate myself to your maternal and Immaculate Heart, this Heart which is symbol of your life of love. You are the Mother of my Savior. You are also my Mother. You love me with a most special love as a member of Shepherds of Christ Associates, a movement created by your Son as a powerful instrument for the renewal of the Church and the world. In a return of love, I give myself entirely to your motherly love and protection. You followed Jesus perfectly. You are His first and perfect disciple. Teach me to imitate you in the putting on of Christ. Be my motherly intercessor so that, through your Immaculate Heart, I may be guided to an ever closer union with the pierced Heart of Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the flock."

17. Daily Prayers. All members should say the Holy Spirit prayer daily and make the act of consecration daily. They should also pray the rosary each day. They are encouraged to use the other above prayers as time allows.

Ayúdame a corresponder siempre a Tu amor. Ayúdame a entregarme totalmente a Ti. Ayúdame siempre a derramar mi vida en amar a Dios y mi prójimo! Corazón de Jesús, pongo mi confianza en Ti!

"Amada y bendita Virgen María, yo me consagro a tu maternal e inmaculado Corazón, este Corazón que es símbolo de tu vida de amor. Tú eres la Madre de mi Salvador. Tú eres también mi Madre. Tú me amas con amor muy especial como miembro de Asociados de los Pastores de Cristo, una cruzada creada por Tu Hijo, como un instrumento poderoso para la renovación de la Iglesia y el mundo. Correspondiendo al amor, yo me entrego totalmente a tu amor maternal y protección. Tú seguiste a Jesús perfectamente. Tú eres Su primer y perfecto discípulo. Enséñame a imitar en ante poner a Cristo. Sé mi maternal intercesora, para que, a través de tu Corazón Inmaculado, sea conducida a una unión más cercana al Corazón herido de Jesús, Pastor Supremo del rebaño."

17. Oraciones diarias. Todos los miembros deberán hacer el acto de consagración diariamente. También deberán rezar el rosario cada día. Los exhortamos a que recen las oraciones aquí mencionadas, si el tiempo lo permite.

Les Associés des Pasteurs du Christ



            Réunion du Chapitre Format de prières

Le format de prières que l’on trouvera ici est celui qui doit être normalement suivi aux réunions de chapitre des Associés des Pasteurs du Christ. Les prières devraient toujours être faites aux intentions de tous les prêtres du monde, et non seulement à celles spécifiquement recommandées pour certains prêtres.

1. Hymnes. Les hymnes peuvent être chantés à n’importe quel moment durant la réunion réservé à la prière.

2. Prière au Saint-Esprit. Viens, Esprit Saint, Sanctificateur tout puissant, Dieu d’amour, qui remplit de grâces la Vierge Marie, qui changea le coeur des apôtres de façon magnifique, qui dota tous tes martyrs d’un courage miraculeux, viens nous sanctifier. Eclaire nos pensées, fortifie notre volonté, purifie notre conscience, rend droit nos jugements, réchauffe notre coeur et préserve nous de résister à tes inspirations. Amen.

3. Le chapelet.

4. Le Salve Regina. "Salut, ô Reine, Mère de miséricorde, notre vie, notre doceur et notre espérance, salut. Enfants d’Eve, malheureux exilés, nous élevons nos cris vers toi; nous soupirons vers toi, gémissant et pleurant dans cette vallée de larmes. Ô notre avocate, tourne donc vers nous tes regards miséricordieux, et au sortir de cet exil montre-nous Jésus, le fruit béni de tes entrailles. Ô clémente, ô charitable, ô douce Vierge Marie. Amen."

5. Le Memorare. "Souviens-toi, ô très pieuse Vierge Marie, qu’on n’a jamais entendu dire qu’aucun de ceux qui ont eu recours à ta protection, qui ont imploré ton assistance et réclamé ton secours, ait été abandonné. Animé d’une pareille confiance, je resours à toi ô Vierge des vierges. Je me présente devant toi, pécheur repentant. Ne rejette pas mes prières, ô Mère du Verbe, mais écoute-les favorablement et daigne les exaucer. Amen."

6. Les Sept "Je te salue Marie" en honneur des Sept Douleurs de Marie. A ceux et celles qui s’acquittent de cette dévotion tous les jours, Marie a promis de les assister au moment de la mort. Voici les sept douleurs de Marie:

Note: On récite le "Je te salue Marie" après chaque invocation.

(1) Première douleur: la prophétie de Siméon.

(2) Deuxième douleur: la fuíte en Egypte.

(3) Troisième douleur: l’égarement de Jésus au Temple.

10. Prière pour les prêtres. "Seigneur Jésus, Grand Pasteur du troupeau, nous prions pour que dans l’amour et la miséricorde de ton Sacré Coeur, tu assistes tes prêtres-pasteurs du monde entier.

Tu nous révèle ton Coeur comme symbole de ton amour inépuisable, et de ton amour pour moi que tu as choisi comme ton compagnon pour cette oeuvre importante. Aide-moi à toujours t’aimer comme je dois. Aide-moi à me donner tout entier à toi. Aide-moi à me dépenser par amour de Dieu et du prochain. Coeur de Jésus, je mets ma confiance en Toi.

"Bienheureuse Vierge Marie, je me consacre à ton Coeur Immaculé et maternel, symbole de ta vie d’amour pour nous. Tu es la Mère de mon Sauveur, et ma Mère. Tu m’aimes spécialement comme membre des Associés des Pasteurs du Christ, un mouvement créé par ton Fils pour être un instrument puissant du renouveau de l’Eglise et du monde. En retour de cet amour, je me consacre entièrement à ton amour et à ta protection maternelle. En suivant Jésus parfaitement, tu es devenue son premier et parfait disciple. Enseigne-moi comment revêtir le Christ. Que la médiation maternelle de ton Coeur Immaculé m’obtienne d’être de plus en plus intimement uni au Coeur transpercé de Jésus, éminent Pasteur de son troupeau."

17. Prières quotidiennes. Tous les membres devraient réciter la prière au Saint-Esprit et l’acte de consécration tous les jours, ainsi que le Chapelet. On suggère qu’ils se servent des autres prières selon le temps disponible.

Amen. 


4. LA SALVE. “Salve, Regina, Madre di Misericordia, vita, dolcezza e speranza nostra, Salve. A te ricorriamo ésuli figli di Eva;  a te sospiriamo gementi e piangenti in questa valle di lacrime.

Prega per noi, Santa Madre di Dio, e saremo degni delle promesse di Cristo. Amen.” 

5. MEMORARE. “Ricordati, piissima Vergine María, che no si é mai inteso al mondo che qualcuno abbia fatto ricorso a te per implorare il tuo aiuto, e sia stato abbandonato. Anch’io, animato d a tale confidenza, a te ricorro, Vergine Madre purissima, e vengo a mettermi davanti a te, peccatore avvilito ed affranto. Tu che sei la Madre del Verbo, non respingere la mia povera voce, ma ascoltala benevola, ed esaudiscimi. Amen.”

5.   Wyleję obfite błogosławieństwa na wszystkie ich przedsięwzięcia.

6.   Grzesznicy znajdą w mym Sercu źródło nieskończonego miłosierdzia.

7.   Dusze oziębłe staną się gorliwymi.

8.   Dusze gorliwe dojdą szybko do doskonałości.

9.   Błogosławić będę domy, w których wizerunek Serca mego będzie czczony.

10. Kapłanom dam dar kruszenia serc najbardziej zatwardziałych.

11. Osoby, które będą to nabożeństwo rozszerzały, będą miały imię swoje zapisane w mym Sercu i na zawsze w nim pozostaną.

12. Przyrzekam w nadmiarze miłosierdzia Serca mojego, że wszechmocna miłość moja udzieli tym wszystkim, którzy przyjmą komunię św. w pierwsze piętki przez dziewięć miesięcy z rzędu, łaskę pokuty, iż nie umrą w niełasce mojej ani bez sakramentów świętych, a Serce moje będzie im pewną ucieczką w ostatniej godzinie ich życia. 

10. Modlitwa za kapłanów. Panie Jezu, Królu Pasterzy, prosimy Cię, abyś w niezmierzonej miłości i łaskawości Swego Najświętszego Serca zatroszczył się o wszelkie potrzeby Swoich kapłanów - pasterzy na całym świecie. Prosimy Cię, abyś przygarnął z powrotem do Serca Swego tych wszystkich Kapłanów, którzy zeszli z Twojej drogi, abyś na nowo rozpalił pragnienie świętości w sercach tych kapłanów, w których to pragnienie przygasło, abyś nieustannie obdarowywał Swoich żarliwych kapłanów pragnieniem największej świętości. Zjednoczeni w Twoim Sercu i w Sercu Maryi, prosimy Cię, abyś zaniósł naszą prośbę do Swego Ojca Niebieskiego w jedności z Duchem Świętym. Amen. 

11. Modlitwa za wszystkich członków Wspólnoty Pasterzy Chrystusa. Drogi Jezu, prosimy Cię o szczególne błogosławieństwo dla wszystkich członków Wspólnoty Pasterzy Chrystusa. Oświecaj nas nieustannie odnośnie tego szczególnego przywileju i odpowiedzialności jakie nam dałeś jako członkom Twojego ruchu Wspólnoty Pasterzy Chrystusa. Przygarnij nas blisko do Swego Serca i Serca Matki Swojej. Pozwól nam odczuć tę wielką i szczególną miłość Serca Swego, jaką obdarowujesz każdego z nas z osobna. Udziel nam łaski, abyśmy tym większą miłością mogli odwzajemnić miłość Twoją i Maryi. Kiedy zamieszkamy w Twoim Sercu i w Sercu Maryi, zatroszcz się nieskończenie o wszelkie potrzeby nasze i naszych bliskich. Zanosimy te modły za Twoim pośrednictwem do Boga Ojca, w Duchu Świętym, z Maryją, Matką naszą u boku. Amen.

12. Modlitwa za duchowe i finansowe powodzenie naszego biuletynu kapłańskiego. Ojcze, prosimy Cię o szczególne błogosławieństwo dla naszego biuletynu kapłańskiego Pasterze Chrystusa. Prosimy Cię, spraw, aby kapłani, którzy go czytają otwarli się na łaski, którymi pragniesz ich obdarować za szczególnym pośrednictwem Syna Twego. Prosimy Cię również, zadbaj o potrzeby finansowe biuletynu Pasterze Chrystusa. Zanosimy te modły przez Jezusa w Duchu Świętym, z Maryją, Matką naszą u boku. Amen. 

13. Modlitwa za całą ludzkość. Ojcze Niebieski, prosimy Cię o błogosławieństwo dla Twojej dziatwy na całym świecie.  Zatroszcz się o wszelkie nasze potrzeby. Prosimy Cię, okaż szczególną pomoc wszystkim odsuniętym, zaniedbanym i zapomnianym. Zjednoczeni z Matką Bożą, składamy naszą prośbę do Ciebie przez Jezusa i Ducha Świętego. Amen. 

14. Modlitwa do Św. Michała i Anioła Stróża:

Święty Michale Archaniele, broń nas w walce. Przeciw niegodziwościom i zasadzkom złego ducha bądź nam ochroną. Niech mu rozkaże Bóg, pokornie błagamy, a Ty, Książę wojska niebieskiego, Szatana i inne duchy złe, na zgubę dusz ludzkich krążące po świecie, Mocą Bożą strąć do piekła. Amen. 

Aniele Boży, Stróżu mój drogi, mnie, Tobie z dobroci Bożej zleconego, oświecaj, strzeż, prowadź i rządź mną i zawsze przy mnie bądź. Amen.

15. Przerwa na cichą, osobistą modlitwę. Powinna trwać przynajmniej pięć minut. 

16. Akt oddania Najświętszemu Sercu Pana Jezusa i Niepokalanemu Sercu Maryi

Panie Jezu, Królu Pasterzy, oddaję się Twemu Najświętszemu Sercu. Z przebitego Serca Twego narodził się Kościół, któremu nakazałeś mi służyć jako członkowi Wspólnoty Pasterzy Chrystusa w najszczególniejszy sposób. Ukazujesz Swe Serce jako symbol Swojej miłości we wszelkich jej przejawach, wraz z Twoją szczególną miłością do mnie, którego wybrałeś jako Swego towarzysza w tym ważnym zadaniu. Pomóż mi zawsze odpłacać Ci za to miłością. Pomóż mi całkowicie oddać się Tobie. Pomóż mi przeżyć życie w miłości Bożej i miłości bliźniego. Serce Jezusa, w Tobie pokładam nadzieję! 

Najświętsza Maryjo Dziewico, oddaję się twemu matczynemu i Niepokalanemu Sercu, Sercu, które stanowi symbol twego życia w miłości. Ty jesteś Matką mego Zbawiciela. Jesteś też Matką moją. Obdarzasz mnie swoją szczególną miłością jako członka Wspólnoty Pasterzy Chrystusa, ruchu, który stworzył Twój Syn jako potężne narzędzie odnowy Kościoła i świata. W zamian za miłość, oddaję się całkowicie Twojej matczynej miłości i opiece. Ty najdoskonalej podążałaś za Jezusem. Ty jesteś Jego pierwszym i doskonałym uczniem. Naucz mnie jak naśladować Ciebie w podążaniu za Nim. Bądź mi matczyną orędowniczką, abym za pośrednictwem Twego Niepokalanego Serca dał się poprowadzić do jeszcze bliższej jedności z przebitym Sercem Jezusa, Królem Pasterzy. 

17. Codzienna modlitwa. Wszyscy członkowie codziennie powinni odmawiać modlitwę do Ducha  Świętego oraz dokonać aktu oddania. Powinni również codziennie odmawiać różaniec. Jeśli pozwala na to czas, zachęcamy także do odmawiania innych wyżej podanych modlitw.

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)
