How has being a member of Shepherds of Christ has changed my life?

When I was a baby, we lived next door to a convent and I had 12 years of Catholic education. I married and lived Cincinnati eventually. After my civil divorce, my three younger children and I moved back to Price Hill in Cincinnati where I grew up. This time brought me the Catholic Charismatic experience.

Dad died in '86, and I moved away to a small town. Though I tried, I thought no Catholic church or prayer group met my needs so I attended Protestant prayer meetings and services. I found ministers and prayer groups that deeply love the Lord Jesus, and I would still be in these circles except that I went back to Cincinnati to visit. I hadn't told my old friends that I was no longer a practicing Catholic so I joined them when they attended charismatic functions. At one of these I was given Blue Book I.

Actually, someone tried to give it to me and I wouldn't take it saying, I had too much to read , so it was given to the friend I was staying with. When we got home and she was out of the room, I opened the book so I could congratulate myself for not accepting it.

That's Jesus! Jesus is speaking in this book! I read almost the whole book that night, then I ate humble pie and phoned the lady who had pressed me to accept it. I received it in a few days.

Back home I read and reread it. Jesus was speaking loud and clear and I went to the nearest church and made a confession and resumed my long neglected practice of daily Mass. I also began to go to the Shepherds of Christ chapter meetings in Morrow, Ohio, where I heard the call for volunteers to come to the Virgin Mary Site in Clearwater, Florida.

How well I understand God's words, "Your thoughts are not My thoughts!".

Changing my thoughts and my ways comes more slowly than changing my address, which is now Clearwater, Florida.

Though retirement isn't at all what I thought it would be, I wouldn't trade places with anyone at all.

     

   

 

From Today's Readings

1 Peter 1: 3-9

Blessed be God the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who in his great mercy has given us a new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead and into a heritage that can never be spoilt or soiled and never fade away. It is reserved in heaven for you who are being kept safe by God’s power through faith until the salvation which has been prepared is revealed at the final point of time.

This is a great joy to you, even though for a short time yet you must bear all sorts of trials; so that the worth of your faith, more valuable than gold, which is perishable even if it has been tested by fire, may be proved—to your praise and honour when Jesus Christ is revealed. You have not seen him, yet you love him; and still without seeing him you believe in him and so are already filled with a joy so glorious that it cannot be described; and you are sure of the goal of your faith, that is, the salvation of your souls.

 

Psalm 111: 1-2, 5-6, 9-10

I give thanks to Yahweh with all my heart,
in the meeting–place of honest people, in the assembly.
Great are the deeds of Yahweh,

to be pondered by all who delight in them.

He gives food to those who fear him,
he keeps his covenant ever in mind.
His works show his people his power
in giving them the birthright of the nations.

Deliverance he sends to his people,
his covenant he imposes for ever;
holy and awesome his name.
The root of wisdom is fear of Yahweh;
those who attain it are wise.
His praise will continue for ever.

Messenger:    The trees are barren in the
                     winter, but as spring approaches
                     I know they soon will bud and bring
                     forth beautiful foliage and bear fruit
                     some of them.

                        I remember days of beautiful
                     snow covering their barren branches
                     and I love it - seeing the snow come down
                     in white beautiful lines and lie on the
                     branches - like a white dress - so
                     beautiful - so soft - my heart felt a
                     joy to behold it.

                        But as I look now (end of February) my
                     heart is ready for the green leaves of
                     summer, the little dainty flowers of
                     some trees in spring - like a fluffy
                     dress, it is time for the annual
                     spring ball.

                         Why do women's dresses and hats turn to
                     little flowers for Easter and in the spring?
                     To match the beauty of the dressed up
                     trees.

                         Would that man in the cold winter and into
                     lent - strip away the impurities of
                     their hearts and be ready for a fleshed red
                     plummeted heart - pumping new blood
                     and growth of the spring.

                         I look now at the barrenness of
                     these trees of winter and as lent approaches
                     and fat Tuesday remember the fir trees
                     of Christmas - adorned in lights and
                     memories of little ornaments with
                     the children's names and that they had bought
                     or made in school.

                         Now a new spring to come, but
                     first the flushing of lent to prepare for
                     the first long awaited flowers of
                     spring and then fruit on the once
                     barren trees.

                        Would that our trees, our hearts were
                     stripped bare, cut back and then -  oh
                     the spring - the Easter - the foliage -
                     the dainty flowers that give the gift
                     of fruit to come.

                         Fruit in the new heart after the
                     40 days of lent and then the 40 days
                     beginning with Easter - Oh my delight -
                     each and every day and Sunday a celebration
                     of joy in the Church year to lead up to
                     the Feast of the Sacred Heart and Immaculate
                     Heart of Mary.

                         Then the days of summer, fruit,
                     flowers - warm nights - time under
                     the stars, the silvery moon - outside
                     cool after a hot day sometimes - or a
                     summer rain - like a fresh gift
                     from God - dripping through the green
                     trees - giving them all a big drink - needed
                     from a scorching sun.

                         I remember the days of August for
                     with it came my long awaited birthday,
                     once a child - not able to hardly wait and
                     now the birthday years roll by like
                     numbers that raise the bar a little higher.
                     But with each year - more school with
                     God, even in sorrow and a closer walk
                     to Thee. My children are grown -
                     the grandchildren plenty with their
                     sweet faces and beautiful eyes and their wisdom
                     astonishes me.

                         Like little flowers so beautiful -
                     I am almost unable to comprehend the
                     wonder of God to make the child. Such
                     beauty - such light, such celebration
                     of God's love pouring out in the creation
                     of a child. Fruit beyond all fruit!!

                         Old houses even die, the wood
                     can wear out, the cellars begin to leak,
                     the gardens once cared for can hardly
                     be found amongst foliage that
                     grows over its once precious place.

                         A place, the garden that once bore
                     fruit - now in granny's memory and
                     grandpa who did much of the work
                     is gone and the old house - uninhabited
                     and the "kids" will soon sell the land -
                     not having the memories, they are buried
                     like the once well cared garden.

                         Gardens all over the world have
                     passed too as their masters no longer
                     capable of their care soon passes to
                     the once plot of land be labored to
                     remove all the weeds.

                         While we can in these days of
                     lent and there is still breath in our
                     bodies - it would be good to weed
                     our most precious garden - our
                     heart of every weed we can - before
                     we "kick the can" and the well
                     cared garden is hoed under a plot
                     of old earth.

"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."

Messenger:   Almost 12 years ago -

                     He planted the seed in our hearts -
                         given by Jesus, our once
                         barren  hearts of winter gave
                         way to the spring foliage and
                         the fruits of summer and
                         Fr. Carter buried beneath the soil -
                         like an old garden going to the
                         grave.

                         But the garden was not old and decrepit -
                     His heart was one with ours as he said
                     "Our hearts are merged" and we planted
                     new gardens with his seeds - now
                     look at our spring time gardens
                     coming soon this Easter.

                         Lent is a time to prepare for
                     the Easter garden - to cut back and strip
                     our hearts bare of all the debris of
                     imperfections, hatred, unforgiveness -
                     to prepare for the new gardens of
                     2006 for which God has given us
                     our hearts and our breath - like
                     new soil - ready to bring forth fruit.

    

 

   

I Want You Holy (excerpt)

January 27, 1994 2:00 a.m.

Jesus:  At the point of your reception of Me, do not focus on your unworthiness. Focus only on My love. Before Communion you can focus on your unworthiness. At the beginning of Mass you can ask forgiveness for your sins. But, at the actual Communion, think only of My love for you. Do not focus on others and your affairs. Focus on our union together. How intense, that you receive God within your breast! I come with My heart on fire and with such intense love for you, burning, burning to be with you in Communion. Make ready your heart, for the King enters into your soul. You are My chosen. You are My beloved. You are so favored, to be given such an honor!

Focus on My love, My intense longing to be united with you. I am God and I am truly in your breast. I am the King of Heaven and Earth and I come and dwell in your heart with burning love. What an event to behold! This is My union with you. God-made-man comes and dwells in your heart! Oh, My child, with what honor you are favored! Behold Him coming and being in your body. God comes into your body! What holiness you possess! Guard your temples for they hold the King of Glory.

I am your Savior. I am your King. I am Who am and I come to dwell in your body. Such honor for you. Guard your temple. You are the recipient of Jesus Christ, Son of God. Who are you that He humbles himself to enter into your body?

You, My child, are His beloved. You are His bride. You are so loved by Him that He died a brutal death for you.

Do you not know who you are? You are as you are because He has honored you. You are clothed in dignity and honor by His love. You are made holy by His presence. You are a temple of God. Guard your temple. Keep it pure and holy. Do not let any disrespect enter there. Be knowledgeable of your worth. You are precious, that God comes to you and dwells in your heart. Oh, such dignity and honor for you, little one. Such intense and burning love!

I am Jesus. I am your Savior. I am your lover. I am your priest. I am He Who cares for you intently. I am the healer, the doctor, the spouse, the one whose bootstraps you are unworthy to tie. I am Who am and I come to you. What dignity indeed! Honor your body, honor your soul. You are Mine.

Oh, beloved, do you know more now? Come and be prepared when you are in Communion with Me. I will tell you more and more. Be open and let Me work in your heart. Pray to the Holy Spirit for His gifts. Whither I go, the Holy Spirit and The Father are with Me. We are three in one. We are God. Be as an open door. Do not expect things--knowledge, earthly signs. Just be with Me and let Me work as I so desire.

Never run from Me after Communion. Be in intense union with Me. Take advantage of such a time. It is the most sacred moment of your life. You house God inside of you. Do not clutter your minds with worldly affairs. I know you far better than you know yourself. Come and be empty, only dwelling on My love for you. Savor these moments alone with Me. Close your eyes and melt into My arms. Think of nothing but My love. Sit and be still. This is the golden moment when our souls unite and we are one with each other. Come to Me, My beloved. I wait for you as the bridegroom of your soul.

I wait for you as the bridegroom of your soul.

I enter and you are speechless. Sit still and soak up all I give you. Just be. Experience My peace, My love, My healing. What you receive will be different at different times. Just be open and silent. Let Me work in you.

I love you, My beloved, and I wait for My union with you. You are so precious to Me. Come and be with Me. I am so loving. No man can give you even a crumb, compared to this love of Mine. Work on your love affair with Me. I will shower you with such love as you will never ever know in your earthly hearts. Come to Me, My beloved. I wait for you, the bridegroom of your soul.

R.The Eucharist is how we are fed. As we more and more understand what is happening, we become fed more and more in our souls.

Jesus: Feed the people. Get these messages on the True Presence and My love out. When they are fed by Me, their hearts will radiate My love to their brothers and it will be as one candle to the darkest night. My light cannot be contained inside a soul. My life is a vibrant energy that radiates from your very being. Feed My people with the love of Jesus in the Eucharist and watch My love grow deeper in their hearts. Feed the priests. Make them aware of this message. They are the leaders to lead My people back.

The power is found in the Mass and Jesus in the Tabernacle. Your union with Me will help save the sick world. It is no less than I describe here. More is to come. Your hearts will burn in your chest with My presence and My love. My might will radiate from your being.

Praise the Lord, for I honor you with My presence within your hearts. Come and be fed this day and every day. My might is endless and My love is without bounds. I am a vibrant force within your breast, unable to be contained. Your answers are in Jesus in the Eucharist.

Come and experience My power and My intense love for you, My longing for your heart. I am a personal God. I am this personal with you. So you say, "Oh, God I do not understand this," and I say, "Right, you will not understand Me and My ways and how I am. I am God. I am Divine and you are human." Experience My love and quiet your heads. Come with an open heart and the trust of a small child. Experience My love. Do not try to figure God out. Be grateful and experience My love in you.

R. We see Jesus living in the souls that He touches with these letters. As people with Jesus deep in our hearts, we have a spiritual union with Him and we become true brothers in Christ. There is love between us as in a spiritual family. The thread which is His love is woven between us, uniting us in a bond with one another. It is a very strong, spiritual bond. To see the love of Jesus in one's heart creates a great love for that person because we love Jesus so much. How can you not love a soul that is so fixed on love of Jesus? Our love for Jesus radiates from our being. Our brothers, who likewise love Jesus, become very close to us. We see Jesus in their lives and we cannot help but love the spirituality about them and the love of Christ which is emitted from their very being.

We are rich with the love of Jesus deep in our breasts and we are twice blessed with the love of Jesus in those with whom we share this love. We see His love in their souls and we are filled by His life in them. It is an energy that is created when we are joined together and it cannot be contained. Such a feeling of love between brothers is a powerful force indeed. The love of Jesus is so big. It grows when we are joined together with each other.

Praise Jesus for such great friends, whose hearts reflect His love and who emit such an energy which feeds us again. We are indeed His chosen ones to be given such blessings in Him and in each other! Jesus' love is a powerful force. We must continue toward union and not division. This force is spiritual and most loving. It is a mighty feeling to see Jesus' love in our brothers!

He is fortifying His army with our love. We are soldiers of love in this cold war. When joined, the warmth of His love is stronger than any cold (which was seen in the cold nights this winter at the seminary. December 3l was so cold, but so touching in my heart). I was very warmed by the company of those who were there. Is this our lesson, that we may be physically cold, but the warmth of Jesus' love in our hearts is the true warmth? We can freeze to death on the outside, but the love of Jesus warms our hearts to intensity on the inside. Our hearts are burning, our toes are frozen but what is important is the hearts, for we continue to appear in large numbers in the deepest cold. Remember December 8? Such an experience, the healing service of Christ the King. Wow! Such warmth! Special moments. All that matters are the things of God.

The food for our souls is Jesus Christ. We are fed by Him. We need the Eucharist. This is what sustains us. He is trying to tell us this in these messages. It is this, and this alone, that we need. Compared with cold temperatures, the things of God are the mighty things. Not things of the body--things of the soul! His food is food indeed. His drink is drink indeed. All that sustains us in the end are the things of God. His Body and His Blood are our true food! May we all see this truth in our hearts. The mystery of the Eucharist, God-made-man coming into our souls, is our true food. He is food and drink, indeed!!

   

 

Alleluia. God is so good and He has visited His people. He is in our presence. He is with us. We are the chosen and He comes in these messages to shout His love into our ears. He wakes me with noises to deliver this to you. Harken and listen! Such honor you possess! He comes to deliver a message to you. Do you think He would come to this world as a human being and die a brutal death and then let you miss His love? He is the same God today as the day He was born and died and resurrected. He is the same God, with the same message, with the same words, with the same love. He is God--one, true, consistent--and He delivers this message to You!

Jesus: Listen, My children. I am coming to you. I am your Savior. I am your ardent Lover. Listen, My little loved ones. I am Who am. Come to Me in the Eucharist. You are the chosen ones. Oh, let Me tell you of My love for you! Read these letters. Shout their contents. Hearts will know Me and My love from these letters. Get them out. I Tell you that you are the vibrant force that will change this world. I love you. Read My message. Shout it. People are numb and miserable.

I call each of you to be My thread to weave My blanket together. Study My messages here. Let Me possess your souls so I can operate your bodies. I need your selflessness. I need your union with Me.

What an army this is, My army of love! Many will come out in big numbers from these letters. You hold the key to opening the hardened hearts of America. Preach My love. Let the vibrancy of My love radiate from your souls. 

You at the Center (Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center, Norwood, Ohio) are My soldiers. Let Me form you into My warriors, warriors of love in this cold world. I have all the power. Let My power live in you. You house the real power in your souls. The world will take notice of the life within you. You are the threads of the tapestry. Strong threads you are when you are woven out of My love. My threads will not break for I am God and I am mighty! Your job is to become selfless and let Me possess you so I am operating from you. I want to use each of you to do My work. Do not tarry. Get My messages out to all My faithful ones. My army is dependent on You!

Such a big job, you say? Not a big job when I am the power behind the operation! You will fly when you rest in My arms. I want this done. Who are you to think you are doing it? I am He Who operates you and My ways are steadfast and direct and without error. When I do the work, it is a major success.

Who could do such work as at the Center except a mighty force that powers it all. I am so happy for My faithful servants there and all those who work so hard. Their work is bearing much fruit, but the power behind it all is Mine. I want this to happen and it will. You are being powered by Me. Let go and relax. I do not make mistakes. My mother is there in it all. My work is at hand. Yours is total submission. You are working on a sure thing. Little distractions are but little distractions to the big plan. Accept all things as coming from Him Who loves you.

Alleluia. You are My faithful ones. Know I am in the tabernacle, ready with your supplies. Come and be charged by Me. Sit and soak in the rays. I work in your hearts and you go away with My might. You come empty, you leave full. You are My warriors going into battle. Your supplies are in front of the tabernacle. Your food is the Holy Eucharist. Your answer is union with Jesus Christ. Quit looking to your feeble minds and your earthly ways to solve your problems. Come to Me and be empty and let Me work through you. You are My soldiers. Be submissive and yielding to the Master. Your union with Me is the answer. I am He Who has all the might. You are My servants. Be selfless, submissive, and let Me possess your souls. Die to yourselves that you will live in Me.

Alleluia. I come to you here and you will heed all I have given you. When I call, you answer. I am calling you today to be attentive to Me, for I am He Who loves you and wants to possess your soul. I am mighty. My might will flow from you. Be selfless, pray constantly, open wide and I enter in and you no longer are you, but Myself, dwelling within you. Alleluia.

Such might! Who could possess such might? And you worry! For what? I am He Who powers you. Be selfless and unattached and be busy, for the work at hand depends on your faith and trust in Me. Pray for strength against the evil one. Do not worry. I am Almighty. Just do your job and get your love from Me. You must follow My directions here--Mass, Holy Communion, Adoration, Prayer for Union with Me and prayer to the Holy Spirit. Your mother is watching after you. Pray, pray, pray. Pray to God The Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Pray! Mary is ever by your side. Where I am, so is My mother. You needn't worry. You do not do it in the end. You become selfless. Let Me operate your souls. I am God. I am mighty. I am your all!
