                Trust in the Lord —

                Where is our heart

                Surrender to God

                Seek not recognition for oneself, but to do
                    the will of God in all things

                Pray unceasingly

                Doing the will of God is the Plan of the Father
                The Father created us with a Plan —

                We go to the Heart of Jesus —
                    we make Jesus the King of our hearts —

                We pray to Mary
                We give her our heart —

                The Holy Spirit counsels us —

                        23. FIRST PRINCIPLE AND FOUNDATION

                            Man is created to praise, reverence and serve God 
                        our Lord, and by this means to save his soul.

    The other things on the face of the earth are created
for man to help him in attaining the end for which he
is created.

    Hence, man is to make use of them in as far as they
help him in the attainment of his end, and he must rid
himself of them in as far as they prove a hindrance to
him.

     Therefore, we must make ourselves indifferent to all
created things, as far as we are allowed free choice and
are not under any prohibition. Consequently, as far
as we are concerned, we should not prefer health to
sickness, riches to poverty, honor to dishonor, a long
life to a short life. The same holds for all other things.

    Our one desire and choice should be what is more
conducive to the end for which we are created.

       

        Prayer of St Ignatius

Soul of Christ, sanctify me
Body of Christ, save me
Blood of Christ, inebriate me
Water from the side of Christ wash me
Passion of Christ, strengthen me
O good Jesus, hear me
Within Thy wounds hide me
Permit me not to be separated from Thee
From the wicked foe defend me
at the hour of my death call me
and bid me come to Thee
That with Thy saints I may praise Thee
For ever and ever. Amen.

 

Prayer from St. Ignatius

Lord, teach me to be generous.
Teach me to serve you as you deserve;
To give and not to count the cost;
To fight and not to heed the wounds;
To toil and not to seek for rest;
To labor and not to ask for any reward,
Save that of knowing
                    that I am doing your will.

 

                We are pilgrims on a journey

                The Church, the world and us are in the state
                    of becoming

                God created us for a purpose

Cardinal Newman said

                    "... everyone who breathes, high and low,
                    educated and ignorant, young and old, man and woman,
                    has a mission, has a work. We are not sent
                    into this world for nothing; we are not born at
                    random. . . God sees every one of us;
                    He creates every soul, He lodges it in
                    a body, one by one, for a purpose. He needs,
                    He deigns to need, every one of us.
                    He has an end for each of us... we are
                    placed in our different ranks and stations, not to
                    get what we can out of them for ourselves, but to
                    labor in them for Him, as He rejoiced to do His work,
                    we must rejoice in ours also.
"
                                   
(Discourses addressed to mixed congregations)

 

                There is a difference of the spirits —
                    The Spirit of God gives peace even
                        in suffering —

                    The evil spirit leads us to be unsettled —
                        to have desolation

                Jesus was full of joy to do His mission —

                Jesus despite His suffering went on
                    about His mission

                Jesus had enemies

                Jesus performed His first miracle at Cana —
                We hear Jesus teach us —

                His program is like nothing we have
                    ever known

                We ask for the grace in this retreat to
                    (1) Know Jesus more
                    (2) To love Jesus more
                    (3) To imitate Him more faithfully

                We need to examine our conscience
                    Fr. Carter did that twice a day —

                We take our spiritual pulse — set 10 minutes
                    aside —
                    (1) ask ourselves are we doing God's will
                    (2) thanking God for our gifts
                    (3) If we have veered from God's will we
                        pray for the grace to be lead to
                        do God's will

                    Make an act of Contrition

                4th day retreat

                    The Resurrection

                    Intimacy with God
                    Union with God

 

Prayer for Union with Jesus

Come to me, Lord, and possess my soul. Come into my heart and permeate my soul. Help me to sit in silence with You and let You work in my heart.

    I am Yours to possess. I am Yours to use. I want to be selfless and only exist in You. Help me to spoon out all that is me and be an empty vessel ready to be filled by You. Help me to die to myself and live only for You. Use me as You will. Let me never draw my attention back to myself. I only want to operate as You do, dwelling within me.

    I am Yours, Lord. I want to have my life in You. I want to do the will of the Father. Give me the strength to put aside the world and let You operate my very being. Help me to act as You desire. Strengthen me against the distractions of the devil to take me from Your work.

    When I worry, I have taken my focus off of You and placed it on myself. Help me not to give in to the promptings of others to change what in my heart You are making very clear to me. I worship You, I adore You and I love You. Come and dwell in me now.

-God's Blue Book, January 17, 1994

   

                This joyful cry is our cry of happiness
                    Jesus has risen

                The victory over the enemies of man

                Jesus went in and out among them for 40 days —

                Jesus promised to send the Holy Spirit —

                The Holy Spirit is the bond of love of the
                    Blessed Trinity —

                    Mark 16: 1-18
                    Matthew 28
                    Luke 24

   

John 20: 19-21

In the evening of that same day, the first day of the week, the doors were closed in the room where the disciples were, for fear of the Jews. Jesus came and stood among them. He said to them, 'Peace be with you,' and, after saying this, he showed them his hands and his side. The disciples were filled with joy at seeing the Lord, and he said to them again, 'Peace be with you.

'As the Father sent me,
so am I sending you.'

   

                The Ascension

                Luke 24: 50-53

 

Acts 1: 1-11

In my earlier work, Theophilus, I dealt with everything Jesus had done and taught from the beginning until the day he gave his instructions to the apostles he had chosen through the Holy Spirit, and was taken up to heaven. He had shown himself alive to them after his Passion by many demonstrations: for forty days he had continued to appear to them and tell them about the kingdom of God. While at table with them, he had told them not to leave Jerusalem, but to wait there for what the Father had promised. ‘It is’, he had said, ‘what you have heard me speak about: John baptised with water but, not many days from now, you are going to be baptised with the Holy Spirit.’

Now having met together, they asked him, ‘Lord, has the time come for you to restore the kingdom to Israel?’ He replied, ‘It is not for you to know times or dates that the Father has decided by his own authority, but you will receive the power of the Holy Spirit which will come on you, and then you will be my witnesses not only in Jerusalem but throughout Judaea and Samaria, and indeed to earth’s remotest end.’
     As he said this he was lifted up while they looked on, and a cloud took him from their sight. They were still staring into the sky as he went, when suddenly two men in white were standing beside them, and they said, ‘Why are you Galileans standing here looking into the sky? This Jesus who has been taken up from you into heaven will come back in the same way as you have seen him go to heaven.’

    

                See the beautiful morning —
                    the light of the sun —

                    Morning

 

Romans 8: 18-25

In my estimation, all that we suffer in the present time is nothing in comparison with the glory which is destined to be disclosed for us, for the whole creation is waiting with eagerness for the children of God to be revealed. It was not for its own purposes that creation had frustration imposed on it, but for the purposes of him who imposed it—with the intention that the whole creation itself might be freed from its slavery to corruption and brought into the same glorious freedom as the children of God. We are well aware that the whole creation, until this time, has been groaning in labour pains. And not only that: we too, who have the first–fruits of the Spirit, even we are groaning inside ourselves, waiting with eagerness for our bodies to be set free. In hope, we already have salvation; in hope, not visibly present, or we should not be hoping—nobody goes on hoping for something which is already visible. But having this hope for what we cannot yet see, we are able to wait for it with persevering confidence. 

     

                We let go and let God work in us

                We want joy and peace in our lives

299. THE RESURRECTION OF CHRIST OUR
        LORD
THE FIRST APPARITION

FIRST POINT. He appeared to the Virgin Mary.
Though this is not mentioned explicitly in the Scripture
it must be considered as stated when Scripture says
that He appeared to many others. For Scripture supposes
that we have understanding, as it is written, "Are
you also without understanding?"

  

                Song: Your Presence Pervades My Soul

                God gives us light

                God helps us see —

                Some remain blind resisting the opportunity
                    to be close to God — to grow in love —
                    grow in love of others

                We follow the Standard of Christ
                    We are on the side of door with Christ our
                        Master —

                Are not our hearts burning within us

                Hearts that are changed
                Hearts that are ready for God
                Hearts that are open

                Jesus ate a fish with them —
                    He had a glorified body —
                Jesus is the resurrection —

                Thomas doubted

                Jesus could go in and out of doors —

                Thomas touched God

                Jesus gave us the community that exists
                    today in the Holy, Catholic Church

                Jesus ascended into heaven —

                The Holy Spirit came upon them

                The Apostles were the body of Christ
                    in the world

                God gave them such a gift —

                God wants us to be saturated with His
                    Divine Love

                We act lovingly when we do the work
                    God calls us to

                We share knowledge with each other —

 

Excerpt from Response in Christ
        by Fr. Edward J. Carter S.J.

       e) Relationship with Members of the Church
There is but one true Church of Christ. Yet this one Church has three different states of existence. There is the pilgrim Church, the Church of this world, composed of members who have received the grace of Christ and strive for its development. They have not yet obtained the goal of their efforts, as have the members of the heavenly Church, who enjoy God in eternal happiness. The Church suffering is an intermediate state of existence necessary for those who had not achieved the required purification as members of the pilgrim Church. Although there are these three phases of the Church's existence, there is a profound union existing between all the members. All these members possess the same basic life of grace in Christ, and this common life establishes the most intimate bonds of love. In our preceding chapter, we discussed the pilgrim Church. Let us now consider the Church suffering and the heavenly Church.

   The members of the Church suffering are those who have departed from this life in an incomplete state of Christian development. Their development is incomplete in the sense that grace has not fully taken possession of them, and, as a result, they are yet closed in upon themselves to a greater or lesser degree. They as yet cannot open themselves out in complete love to the Triune God in the beatific vision. They must undergo a further purification, a purification which could have been achieved upon earth with merit. Now the purification must be achieved with no merit attached. The pain of this purification is mixed with the certain expectation of achieving the vision of God. We can hasten the advent of this vision for this people by the offering of prayers and other good works. Scripture itself refers to our action on behalf of those in purgatory in Chapter 12 of the Second Book of Maccabees beginning with verse 38.

   The members of the heavenly Church are those in whom the life of grace has taken full possession and has reached its completion in the life of glory. Faith now is unnecessary, as the light of glory gives the human intellect a new strength and capacity for seeing God face-to-face. While the Christian was a wayfarer, he received the imprint of the indwelling Trinity as he shared in God's own life. Now in heaven that grace-life and possession of God reaches its completion—the absolute completion is not achieved, however, until the resurrection of the body. The divine persons give Themselves to the beatified in a profound union far surpassing that of the indwelling of the Trinity experienced here below.

   This life of heaven is still the Christ-life, for just as we possess a share in Trinitarian life here below as mediated by Christ, and exercise this grace-life as structured by Him, so also in heaven is the mediation of Christ present. In the words of Rahner, "One always sees the Father through Jesus. Just as immediately as this, for the directness of the vision of God is not a denial of the mediatorship of Christ as man."
13 And not only does the humanity of Christ unite the blessed to God, but also, in some way, to the whole of creation. This is merely a completion of what is begun here below, namely, the union with Christ in His humanity establishing the Christian in a special relationship with God, with other men, and with the whole of creation. We have a glimpse, therefore, of the fullness of life which members of the heavenly Church possess.

   The heavenly Church, as St. Thomas says, is the true Church.
14 The Church of this earth and the Church of purgatory are, each in its own way, reaching out in loving hope for the heavenly Jerusalem. Vatican II puts it very simply: "The Church, to which we are called in Christ Jesus, and in which we acquire sanctity through the grace of God, will attain her full perfection only in the glory of heaven."15

   The members of the heavenly Church can help us in living our life of grace until we too share its fullness with them. Their power of intercession on our behalf is but another ramification of the communal aspect of Christianity. We are meant to help others grow in Christ. We, in turn, are intended by God to receive aid from others—yes, from members of the heavenly Church, as well as from those with whom we dwell here below.

   Not only can we be aided by the saints' intercession, but the example of the canonized saints can also be of great value to us. They have concretely proved that full holiness is possible. Such an inspiration is of real worth when we are tempted to think that Christian sanctity in its higher degrees is impossible of attainment. Moreover, the canonized saints, in their diversity, teach us that there are many authentic versions of Christian holiness. They can be innovators in showing us that there are numerous possibilities in assimilating the mystery of Christ, although the basic assimilation remains the same for all Christians of all times. In the opinion of Rahner this is one of the chief roles the canonized saints exert in the life of the Church.

                We have received so many blessings
                We have received blessings in this retreat

                Look at all God has done for us in this
                    retreat

                All God has taught us —

                Sing: Take Lord Receive

                See the big picture —
                    not just a little piece —
                    see God's plan
                    see with God's vision
                    see God's plan for the world, the
                        Church, all creatures —

                Love as God calls us to love

                God has created us in His image and likeness —
                God gives us the animals, fish, fruit —
                    God is working in these things
                    for our life —

                God keeps the world in existence —

                God gives us all these gifts for our
                    life —

                God is at work in the world —

                God created all these babies being
                    aborted —

                God wants us with Him in eternity

   

Romans 8: 20-25

deIt was not for its own purposes that creation had frustration imposed on it, but for the purposes of him who imposed it—with the intention that the whole creation itself might be freed from its slavery to corruption and brought into the same glorious freedom as the children of God. We are well aware that the whole creation, until this time, has been groaning in labour pains. And not only that: we too, who have the first–fruits of the Spirit, even we are groaning inside ourselves, waiting with eagerness for our bodies to be set free. In hope, we already have salvation; in hope, not visibly present, or we should not be hoping—nobody goes on hoping for something which is already visible. But having this hope for what we cannot yet see, we are able to wait for it with persevering confidence. 

 

 

John 3: 16

For this is how God loved the world:
he gave his only Son,
so that everyone who believes in him 
    may not perish
but may have eternal life.

   

                In baptism we receive this sharing
                    in His Divine Life —

                God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit live in a special
                    way in our graced baptized soul

                God called me by name

 

Exodus 3: 13-14

Moses then said to God, 'Look, if I go to the Israelites and say to them, "The God of your ancestors has sent me to you," and they say to me, "What is his name?" what am I to tell them?' God said to Moses, 'I am he who is.' And he said, 'This is what you are to say to the Israelites, "I am has sent me to you."'

 

                God wants our obedience

                The angels said
                    "I will not serve"

"What have I done for Christ?"
"What am I doing for Christ?"
"What ought I to do for Christ?"

                Sin is ingratitude

                Sin is a rupture in the relationship with
                    God —

                God wants us to bear fruit —

                God wants us to help in building His
                    Kingdom here below —

                Jesus is the King of heaven and earth

                We are to help build the Kingdom

                See through the eyes of the Father —

                We can be under the standard of satan — or
                    of Jesus as our King —

                Jesus came into the world a baby —

                The incarnation goes on in us — in the sacrament
                    of baptism

                We are made members of the mystical body
                    of Christ —

                We live His life, death and resurrection
                    in our lives —

                If we spread the love of Jesus and
                    follow Jesus — we will have
                    enemies —

                Satan doesn't want us to help build
                    the Kingdom of God —

                Satan can press on others and
                    they respond by their wounded human
                        nature hurting men trying to
                        build God's Kingdom —

                Satan doesn't want to spread God's Kingdom

                Satan wants souls for hell

                Jesus gives us the Church
                Jesus gives us the priest

                Jesus told Fr. Carter

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."

                Jesus gives us His Word

                Jesus is the teacher —
                    the hierarchy are the descendants of the
                    Apostles

                Jesus gives them power
                Jesus walked on the water
                Jesus expelled demons
                Jesus feeds us —
                Jesus calms the storm
                Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead

                Jesus is our Redeemer
                Jesus died for our sins
                Jesus rose on the 3rd day

                Sing: A Song from Jesus

                Sing: Glory, Glory, Glory Lord

 

 

                1st day

                Mary and Jesus appeared —

                Jesus and Mary call us because of the aborted babies
                    Little baby Jesus is so approachable
                    This gives dignity to the womb and to babies
                        because Jesus came as a baby

  

story of lady

 

                    Doing God's will — instead of
                        stereo - typing ourselves —
                        saying "oh I can't"

                    Abraham and Isaac —
                        Abraham passed the test
                        God made Abraham's descendents
                            as numerous as the
                            stars of the sky

                When we do God's will instead of saying "no" like
                    saying 'we are shy' —
                God can take us down His slide

                We aren't stuck as a bug in an ice
                    cube


                What side of the door do you want to be
                    on 

 

                Others try to get to us through their
                    imperfections — jealousy, provoking,
                    anger to quit serving God

                We have to stay fixed on God's will

                God the Father created us —

                He has a plan for us —

                The perfect match

                            Me  <—————> God's will for me

                    creation of God
                        the Father

   

Luke 1: 44

Look, the moment your greeting reached my ears, the child in my womb leapt for joy.

 

                Called a child this proves it
                    is a child

                Jesus is the King of Kings

                Jesus came a little King —
                    God the Father provided
                        the sign —

                    The star over Jesus bed —

                Consecration to Jesus is so
                    important

                Jesus is the King of Heaven and
                    earth —

                We are to promote His Kingdom

July 31, 1994

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)
