                Week days February

                    We have great witnesses of faith

                    Hebrews readings

                        "cloud of witnesses"

                        Jesus is the greatest witness

                        We are to model our lives after Jesus —

                        We see Jesus healing in the Gospel —

                        God loves and disciplines His children
                            we should not be bitter or a
                            poisonous root.
                            How deep is the darkness?

                        People thought of Jesus as familiar —
                            a carpenter, son of Mary —
                            they wanted to put Jesus in
                            a box —

                        Thus in Mark's Gospel

                            "No prophet is without honor
                                except in his native place,
                                among his own kindred and
                                in his own house."

                            "He could work no miracles there . . .
                                because of their lack of faith."

                The old law was given in fear, darkness,
                    fire.

                Jesus is the Mediator of a new covenant —
                    Now there is joy —

                Jesus sent them two by two and
                    gave them authority over unclean
                    spirits.

                Love — Love — We are led by Christ —
                    our Leader

                John the Baptist loses his head

 

Colossians 1: 15

He is the image of the unseen God,
the first–born of all creation,

   

                God raises us to such dignity!!

                We are to obey God.

                We are to follow Jesus.

                What good does it do to win the world and lose
                    your soul —

                With all the jobs dwindling —
                    The priests are so dear and needed

                    Let us pray for

                        (1) the pope, hierarchy - descendants
                                of the Apostles

                        (2) the priests, religious, deacons

                Jesus was tired in the Gospel, but
                    Jesus the tender Heart has
                    pity on them and ministers to
                    them

                Jesus' Heart is kind and merciful —
                Jesus is love —

                His Heart on fire for men

 

Deuteronomy 7: 6-11

For you are a people consecrated to Yahweh your God; of all the peoples on earth, you have been chosen by Yahweh your God to be his own people.

‘Yahweh set his heart on you and chose you not because you were the most numerous of all peoples—for indeed you were the smallest of all—but because he loved you and meant to keep the oath which he swore to your ancestors: that was why Yahweh brought you out with his mighty hand and redeemed you from the place of slave–labour, from the power of Pharaoh king of Egypt. From this you can see that Yahweh your God is the true God, the faithful God who, though he is true to his covenant and his faithful love for a thousand generations as regards those who love him and keep his commandments, punishes in their own persons those that hate him. He destroys anyone who hates him, without delay; and it is in their own persons that he punishes them.Hence, you must keep and observe the commandments, laws and customs which I am laying down for you today.
 

                This week in February — week days

                    Goodness of creation
                    Importance of covenant
                    God speaks to us through creation
                    All creation bears the handprint of God.
                    God gives us His vision
                    Christ is the light of salvation —

                Creation

                    God creates the world
                    God creates the seen and unseen —
                    God creates out of nothing
                    The human person is the apex of creation
                    All was created by God with purpose
                        and meaning, —
                        created to praise God

                    God says "Let there be light"
                                    and there was light.

                We see God's call — our response

                Father Carter's book

                    Response to God's Love

                    LIGHT - "DAY"   DARKNESS - "NIGHT"

                    Heaven

                    Earth                water

                God creates
                God orders
                God creates
                God is all good —
                There is rain and snow

                Sun and moon and stars => ORDERED

                Vegetation — Natural order

                Birds, swimming creatures

                "Be fruitful and multiply"

                Animals

                God creates ADAM in His image and likeness

                God made male and female to
                    propagate species

   

Genesis 1:26-27

God said, 'Let us make man in our own image, in the likeness of ourselves, and let them be masters of the fish of the sea, the birds of heaven, the cattle, all the wild animals and all the creatures that creep along the ground.'

God created man in the image of himself,
in the image of God he created him,
male and female he created them.

 

                God is the ruler

                God is love

                We are meant to love

                Today's first reading was Genesis 1: 1-19

                Mark tells us today in the Gospel how
                    people flocked to Him

                Genesis is not scientific, but to
                    teach religious lessons —
                    How good is God's creation
                    Jesus rested on the 7th day

  

Genesis 1: 26-27

God said, 'Let us make man in our own image, in the likeness of ourselves, and let them be masters of the fish of the sea, the birds of heaven, the cattle, all the wild animals and all the creatures that creep along the ground.'

God created man in the image of himself,
in the image of God he created him,
male and female he created them.

  

Mark 7: 6-8

    ...This people honours me 
        only with lip–service, 
    while their hearts are far from me. 
    Their reverence of me is worthless; 
    the lessons they teach 
        are nothing but human commandments. 

You put aside the commandment of God to observe human traditions.’

   

                We are to live our lives being like
                    Jesus

                Jesus is all pure
                Jesus was in constant prayer
                Jesus forgave
                Jesus was selfless

                We can be dull to the spiritual life
                    and what God is trying to teach
                    us

                We were created to be like God

                I studied Math —

                    Do you understand "OBTUSENESS"

                What makes us impure is our
                    hearts
                    Wash ourselves
                    and have dark impure hearts —
                    that is stupid

                Wash the vase
                fill it with mud
                How deep are the evils in a
                    man's heart —

                Are we

                    Rooted in God
                    Rooted in evil

                A man who lives lying deceives
                    himself most —
                    he becomes more and more
                        dull to the truth

                    A lying person gets confused
                    A lying person has an uninformed
                        conscience

                We are to live a virtuous life
                    not a life filled with vices —

                To live a life of being a
                    Victor for Christ

   

Revelation 3: 11-13

I am coming soon: hold firmly to what you already have, and let no one take your victor's crown away from you. Anyone who proves victorious I will make into a pillar in the sanctuary of my God, and it will stay there for ever; I will inscribe on it the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem which is coming down from my God in heaven, and my own new name as well. Let anyone who can hear, listen to what the Spirit is saying to the churches."

   

John 8: 12

When Jesus spoke to the people again, he said: 

I am the light of the world;

anyone who follows me

   will not be walking in the dark,

but will have the light of life.

   

                Spread the Blue Books

                Rooted in the truth

                God created a peaceful, loving,
                    orderly, harmonious, good
                    world without sin or evil —

                The world reflected the love of
                    God and His creatures —

                    NO WAR
                    NO VIOLENCE  

  

                There are 3 awarenesses and love
                    Fr. Carter says in his Response to
                    God's Love

                    (1) Love of God
                    (2) Love of others
                    (3) Love of self

                Fr. Carter says

   

 

                    The individual Christian,
                        the world and the Church
                        are in the state of
                        becoming

  

 

 

Fr. Carter had a dream.

  

                The world is seen as a desert, barren —
                    Water is on the surface of the world

                    God breathes life


                    We are formed from the ground


                    We need the earth to survive


                    The earth is to be fertile


                    Look at God flooding earth
                        at time of Noah because
                        they disobeyed


                God put man in a garden

                God is the Creator

                Man the creature

                Man must recognize his dependence
                    on God

                God speaks to man
                God does not speak to animals and plants

                Woman is created from the rib of man
                The Church is born from the side
                    of Christ

                God orders everything —
                        animals etc. —

                Woman is helper to man


                A woman's daughter in the
                    Gospel has demons

                Jesus casts them out —


                Jesus is the Way, the Truth and
                    the Life

                Song: Glory, Glory, Glory Lord

 

                Fall of Man

 

                Fall of first parents

                We all have a wounded human
                    nature because of our
                    first parents
                    Adam and Eve


                We see in Mark's Gospel —
                    the deaf man is healed —
                    Jesus sticks His finger into
                        the man's ears
                    Jesus spit and touched the
                        man's tongue
                    He looked to the heavens

                    "Be opened" - Jesus said —

                The man's ears were opened and
                    He spoke clearly

                We must be humble and talk
                    to Jesus

                Open our heart to talk to
                    Jesus

                Be open
                Not rebellious
                or act foolishly
                Look at Jesus —

                Follow Jesus not the way
                    of the world —

                Adam and Eve are banished
                    from the Garden because
                    of their sin

                The core of sin is seeking to live
                    independent of God —
                    make decisions like this

                Secularism

                Sin is revealed

                Because of sin there is
                    disharmony
                    disorder
                    LUST, ENVY, JEALOUSY,
                    COVETOUSNESS,
                    PRIDE

                Man's image of himself is distorted
                Man's image of God is distorted
                Man's image of others is distorted

                There was harmony

                Now there is disobedience


                The Church is showing us in
                    these daily readings
                    that we are sinners
                    because of our
                    wounded human
                    nature

                We are accountable for
                    our disobedience and
                    sin against God

                In the Sunday's before Lent
                    we see God heals —
                    paralytics
                    and
                    sinners

                In Lent we look inside
                    ourselves and admit our
                    sin so God can heal
                    us —


                Because of the garden
                    Blame enters the world
                    Seeking dominance for
                                dominance sake

                Concupiscence enters the world —

                Attraction to sin — 

 

                Grace moves us toward God

                Concupiscence moves us to sin —

                Man can rebel against God's
                    will

                Sin upsets the order willed
                    by God

                Childbearing has pain —

                We must work

                Hard life

                We must choose to do God's will

                Jesus feeds the multitude with
                    7 loaves and a few fish

 

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.

 

Romans 5: 5-11

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

 

Luke 5: 3-7

Then he sat down and taught the crowds from the boat.

    When he had finished speaking he said to Simon, ‘Put out into deep water and pay out your nets for a catch.’ Simon replied, ‘Master, we worked hard all night long and caught nothing, but if you say so, I will pay out the nets.’ And when they had done this they netted such a huge number of fish that their nets began to tear, so they signalled to their companions in the other boat to come and help them; when these came, they filled both boats to sinking point.

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)

 

  

Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus

My dear fellow Associate Members,

Jesus is calling special apostles to join a new division of the Shepherds of Christ Movement. Here is a message from Jesus given to Father Carter:

    My beloved priest-companion, I am requesting that a new prayer movement be started under the direction of Shepherds of Christ Ministries. I am asking for volunteers who are willing to pray before the Blessed Sacrament for one hour, twice-weekly. Members of the Shepherds of Christ prayer chapters, as well as others, are to be invited to join this movement.

    These apostles are to pray for the intentions I am giving you. For part of the hour they are to use the prayers of the Shepherds of Christ Associates Handbook. They may spend the rest of the hour as they so choose.

    I will use this new prayer movement within My Shepherds of Christ Ministries in a powerful way to help in the renewal of My Church and the world. I will give great graces to those who join this movement. The name, Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus, is to be given to this movement.

    I am inviting My beloved Rita Ring to be coordinator for this activity.

    I pour out the great love of My Sacred Heart to all. I am Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the flock.

    This is indeed a special calling for us to unite in one heart with His Eucharistic Heart and pray for the following intentions:

  1. For the spread of the devotion to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary culminating in the reign of the Sacred Heart and the triumph of the Immaculate Heart.

  2. For the Pope.

  3. For all bishops of the world.

  4. For all priests.

  5. For all sisters and brothers in the religious life.

  6. For all members of the Shepherds of Christ Movement, and for the spread of this movement to the world.

  7. For all members of the Catholic Church.

  8. For all members of the human family.

  9. For all souls in purgatory.

October 13, 1994

77th Anniversary of Mary's appearance at Fatima

The Birth of the Full Ministries
of the Shepherds of Christ

    "I wish to share with you part of a message which Jesus gave us on October 13, 1994. The message tells us about the expansion of the Shepherds of Christ movement:

    'My beloved priest-companion, today I come to you with another mission. I am asking you to establish Shepherds of Christ Ministries. At My request you have already begun the priestly newsletter, "Shepherds of Christ", and the prayer chapters, Shepherds of Christ Associates...

    'I am giving you this message on this day, the 77th Anniversary of the Great Apparition at Fatima, because of the close connection between the Shepherds of Christ movement and the Fatima message. The Fatima message is centered in devotion to My Heart and My Mother's Heart, especially in consecration to Our Hearts. Shepherds of Christ Ministries is also centered in devotion to Our Hearts. I will use Shepherds of Christ Ministries as a great instrument in helping to bring about the triumph of the Immaculate Heart and the reign of My Sacred Heart. When this occurs, My Church and the world will be experiencing the great era of peace promised by My Mother at Fatima.

    'Today, then, October 13, 1994, the 77th Anniversary of the Great Apparition at Fatima, marks the birth of Shepherds of Christ Ministries. I pour forth the great love of My Sacred Heart to all. I am Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the flock.'

    "Jesus has told us that Shepherds of Christ Ministries includes: the priestly newsletter, Shepherds of Christ, Shepherds of Christ Associates prayer chapters, various publications, including books, whatever else Our Lord directs us to undertake.

    "As members of Shepherds of Christ Associates, you are an extremely important part of Shepherds of Christ Ministries. You have given great joy to the Heart of Jesus by responding to His invitation to become members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. As He draws you closer to His Heart and to His Mother's Heart as Associates members, He will fill you with an ever-increasing experience of His love, peace, and joy."

- From In the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, Newsletter of Shepherds of Christ Associates
by Fr. Edward J. Carter S.J., Volume 1, No. 1, 1995. p. 2.

 

 

   from Tell My People                                                          

Age Of The Two Hearts

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!"

Reflection by Fr. Carter:

This is the Age of the Two Hearts! The surest road to sanctity in these our times is through consecration to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. In making this consecration, and striving with God's grace to live it as best we can each day, we are contributing to the establishment of the triumph of the Immaculate Heart and to the arrival of the reign of the Sacred Heart.

 

 

Excerpt from The Spirituality of Fatima

by Fr. Edward Carter, S.J.

Before receiving the six apparitions of Our Lady, May through October of 1917, the three Fatima visionaries were visited by an angel on three different occasions during the preceding year. He appeared to them in the spring, summer, and fall. Lucia (now Sr. Lucia) describes the springtime apparition of the angel:

    On reaching us, he said: "Do not be afraid! I am the Angel of Peace. Pray with me."

    Kneeling on the ground, he bowed down until his forehead touched the ground and made us repeat these words three times: "My God, I believe, I adore, I hope and I love You! I ask pardon of You for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not hope and do not love You."

    Then, rising he said: "Pray thus. The Hearts of Jesus and Mary are attentive to the voice of your supplications."

    His words engraved themselves so deeply on our minds that we could never forget them (3)

    During the summer of 1916, the angel again appeared to the three visionaries. He said to them:

    Pray! Pray a great deal. The Hearts of Jesus and Mary have merciful designs on you. Offer prayers and sacrifices continually to the Most High. Make everything you do a sacrifice, and offer it as an act of reparation for the sins by which God is offended, and as a petition for the conversion of sinners. Bring peace to our country in this way.... I am the Guardian Angel of Portugal Accept and bear with submission all the sufferings the Lord will send you. (4)

    In the fall of the same year, the angel visited the visionaries a final time:

    The angel came...bearing a golden chalice in one hand and a Host above it in the other. The amazed children noticed that drops of blood were falling from the Host into the chalice. Presently, the angel left both suspended in mid-air and prostrated himself on the ground, saying this beautiful prayer: "Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, I adore You profoundly. I offer You the most precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ, present in all tabernacles of the world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges, and indifference by which He is offended. By the infinite merits of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and [the intercession of] the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg of Thee the conversion of poor sinners." (5)

    Sr. Lucia relates how the angel gave them Communion:

    Then, rising, he took the chalice and the Host in his hand. He gave the Sacred Host to me and shared the Blood from the chalice between Jacinta and Francisco, saying as he did so:

"Take and drink the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, horribly outraged by ungrateful men! Make reparation for their crimes and console your God." (6)

Excerpts from The Spirituality of Fatima

by Fr. Edward Carter, S.J.

   

May 13, 1917 

    "Do not be afraid, I will do you no harm..... I am from Heaven.

    "I have come to ask you to come here for six months in succession, on the 13th day, at the same hour. Later on, I will tell you who I am and what I want

    "Are you willing to offer yourselves to God and bear all the sufferings He wills to send you, as an act of reparation for the sins by which He is offended, and in supplication for the conversion of sinners?

    "Pray the Rosary every day in order to obtain peace for the world, and the end of the war." (8)

  

June 13, 1917

    "God wishes you to remain in the world for some time because He wants to use you to establish in the world the devotion to my Immaculate Heart. I promise salvation to those who embrace it, and their souls will be loved by God as flowers placed by myself to adorn His throne." (10)

  

July 13, 1917

    "During her appearance in July, Our Lady, in answer to Lucia's plea, promised that in October she would work a great miracle so that all might believe and know who she was. Again, the Mother of God told the children to sacrifice themselves for sinners and to say many times, especially when making a sacrifice, this prayer: "O my Jesus, I offer this for love of Thee, for the conversion of poor sinners, and in reparation for all the sins committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary." (11)

    "During this same July apparition, Mary showed the three children a vision of Hell. She told them:

    "You have seen Hell, where the souls of poor sinners go. To save them, God wishes to establish, in the world, devotion to my Immaculate Heart. If people do what I tell you, many souls will be saved and there will be peace.

    "The war (World War I, then raging) is going to end. But if people do not stop offending God, another and worse one will begin in the reign of Pius XI. When you shall see a night illuminated by an unknown light [January 2, 1938], know that this is the great sign that God gives you that He is going to punish the world for its many crimes by means of war, hunger, and persecution of the Church and the Holy Father. (12)

    "To prevent this, I shall come to ask for the consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart and the Communion of Reparation on the five first Saturdays. If my requests are granted, Russia will be converted and there will be peace. If not, she will scatter her errors throughout the world, provoking wars and persecutions of the Church. The good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer, and various nations will be destroyed....

    "But in the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph, the Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, Russia will be converted, and a certain period of peace will be granted to the world." (13)

  

August 19, 1917

    She told them she was greatly displeased by the action of the mayor. As a result, the miracle promised for October would not be as impressive as originally planned. (15)

 

September 13, 1917

    More than 30,000 people were present in September, and saw a shower of mysterious white petals fall to within 10 feet of the ground before dissolving into the air. Many also saw the globe of light bearing the Lady come to rest atop the tree, and the branches bend as though someone were standing on them. Later, they saw the cloud depart into the east, from whence it had come.(16)

  

October 13, 1917

    I am the Lady of the Rosary. I have come to warn the faithful to amend their lives and to ask pardon for their sins. They must not offend Our Lord any more, for He is already too grievously offended by the sins of men. People must say the Rosary. Let them continue saying it every day.(17)

    While the people in attendance were beholding the great Miracle of the Sun, the three young visionaries, and they alone, were privileged to see striking visions in the heavens:

    As Our Lady had promised, St. Joseph had come with the Holy Family and had blessed the world. Then, Our Lady appeared as the Mother of Sorrows, accompanied by her Divine Son, Who also blessed the world. Finally, Lucy had seen the Blessed Virgin, dressed in the brown robes of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, crowned as Queen of Heaven and Earth, holding a brown Scapular in her hand, with her infant Son upon her knee. However, in none of these visions had any of the figures spoken to the children. (18)

    Besides the messages associated with the major Fatima apparitions, there were other revelations given by Our Lady. Before Jacinta died, she told of other messages given her (during her illness) by Mary:

    More souls go to Hell because of sins of the flesh than for any other reason.

    Certain fashions will be introduced that will offend Our Lord very much.

    Many marriages are not good; they do not please Our Lord and are not of God.

    Priests must be pure, very pure. They should not busy themselves with anything except what concerns the Church and souls. The disobedience of priests, to their superiors and to the Holy Father, is very displeasing to Our Lord.

    I can no longer restrain the hand of my Divine Son from striking the world with just punishments for its many crimes.

    If the government of a country leaves the Church in peace and gives liberty to our Holy Religion, it will be blessed by God.

    Tell everybody that God gives graces through the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Tell them to ask grace from her, and that the Heart of Jesus wishes to be venerated together with the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Ask them to plead for peace from the Immaculate Heart of Mary, for the Lord has confided the peace of the world to her. (19)
