Jesus: My dear people,

    Today March 22, 2012, I want you to make available the statues: Our Lady of Fatima and Our Lady of Guadalupe with the glass, so people will honor Mary and pray the prayers as I have requested before the statue praying for the priests, the Church and the world.

    Pray the prayers before the statues with glass for healings and blessings for your family, for your country, for the Church and the world. I promise special graces to those praying these prayers, and graces drawing them closer to My Heart and My Mother's heart. I want all to know My Mother's love as their mother. Put the statues with the glass in your homes and Churches, your schools and places of businesses and pray these prayers given to Fr. Carter, S.J., founder of Shepherds of Christ, in the prayer manual for the priests, the Church and the world. I am Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the Flock.

Mary: My children,

    You need to make Jesus, the King and Center of
your homes, schools, Churches, businesses,
all places on the earth —

    Satan is waging a war. Pray the prayers as Jesus told
Fr. Carter before the statue.

Let this be a time of bringing the love of Our 2 Hearts to
    your world —

Please as your heavenly Mother, I tell you to do as Jesus
said 18 years ago, spread these prayers and see they are
prayed all over the earth.

I am Our Lady of Clearwater for all these years, I have appeared
to tell you, as the Mother of All and Queen of Peace that God
the Father wants this devotion to Our 2 Hearts —

Listen to Him and pray these prayers —
Begin them in the Churches —
Look at the threats you are suffering —
Pray as 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."

- 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)

 

Mary: You are being threatened more than you know with the
    religious freedom issues. My children abortion is
    wrong. Now this — pray these prayers before My statue
    with the glass, pray fervently — God will help you —
    I am Mary, Queen of Peace, Our Lady of Clearwater
    I crush the head of satan with my heal.

 

   

                Given February 24, 2012

                R. The Heart of Christ beats in the
                hearts of men —

                    I had a vision of a beautiful
                beating heart — First I saw a map
                and it was of the world and I kept
                hearing the word — the pope — the pope —

                    Seeing the connection of the whole
                Catholic Church, I saw, like stations
                all over the world where the churches
                were united to the pope — It was vast —
                the map of the world,

                    But the unity was — unity one —
                the Church, one, united under the
                pope — The Church, the body of Christ —
                one, holy, Catholic and Apostolic —
                And I heard the word "pope"
                united with all the Churches on
                the map all over the world —
                "pope" —

                The map was blue and the Churches
                white — scattered on the map of
                the earth and there was a little
                red on the vision —

                The blue was the blue of my room
                at home and the white the Churches —
                Then a big red heart covered it all —
                movement as it beated —
                I can't even explain the heart —
                It covered the map —
                It was red and it sparkled with
                light as it beat — I can't even
                write about it, but I can see it
                now, I cannot explain it because
                It is beyond words — 

 

                R. The heart pretty much covered the map.
                It was so big —

Shepherds of Christ Associates

Prayer Manual

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:

(1) The first sorrow: the prophecy of Simeon (Hail Mary).

(2) The second sorrow: the flight into Egypt (Hail Mary).

(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).

(5) The fifth sorrow: Jesus dies on the cross (Hail Mary).

(6) The sixth sorrow: Jesus is taken down from the cross and laid in Mary's arms (Hail Mary).

(7) The seventh sorrow: the burial of Jesus (Hail Mary).

8. Prayer to St. Joseph. St. Joseph, guardian of Jesus and chaste spouse of Mary, you passed your life in perfect fulfillment of duty. You supported the Holy Family of Nazareth with the work of your hands. Kindly protect those who trustingly turn to you.

(4) I will be their refuge during life and above all in death.

(5) I will bestow a large blessing on all their undertakings.

(6) Sinners shall find in My Heart the source and the infinite ocean of mercy.

(7) Tepid souls shall grow fervent.

(8) Fervent souls shall quickly mount to high perfection.

(9) I will bless every place where a picture of My Heart shall be set up and honored.

(10) I will give to priests the gift of touching the most hardened hearts.

(11) Those who promote this devotion shall have their names written in My Heart, never to be blotted out.

(12) I promise you in the excessive mercy of My Heart that My all-powerful love will grant to all those who communicate on the first Friday in nine consecutive months the grace of final penitence; they shall not die in My disgrace nor without receiving their sacraments; My divine Heart shall be their safe refuge in this last moment.

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. We ask that You open the priest-readers to the graces You wish to give them through this chosen instrument of Your Son. We also ask that You provide for the financial needs of the newsletter and the Shepherds of Christ Associates. We make our prayer through Jesus, in the Holy Spirit, with Mary at our side. Amen"

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. We ask Your special assistance for all those marginalized people, all those who are so neglected and forgotten. 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.

                Readings from Today

Exodus 32: 7-14

Yahweh then said to Moses, ‘Go down at once, for your people whom you brought here from Egypt have become corrupt. They have quickly left the way which I ordered them to follow. They have cast themselves a metal calf, worshipped it and offered sacrifice to it, shouting, "Israel, here is your God who brought you here from Egypt!" ’ Yahweh then said to Moses, ‘I know these people; I know how obstinate they are! So leave me now, so that my anger can blaze at them and I can put an end to them! I shall make a great nation out of you instead.’

Moses tried to pacify Yahweh his God. ‘Yahweh,’ he said, ‘why should your anger blaze at your people, whom you have brought out of Egypt by your great power and mighty hand? Why should the Egyptians say, "He brought them out with evil intention, to slaughter them in the mountains and wipe them off the face of the earth?" Give up your burning wrath; relent over this disaster intended for your people. Remember your servants Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, to whom you swore by your very self and made this promise: "I shall make your offspring as numerous as the stars of heaven, and this whole country of which I have spoken, I shall give to your descendants, and it will be their heritage for ever." ’ Yahweh then relented over the disaster which he had intended to inflict on his people.

      

Psalm 106: 19-23

At Horeb they made a calf,
bowed low before cast metal;
they exchanged their glory
for the image of a grass-eating bull.
 

They forgot the God who was saving them,
who had done great deeds in Egypt,
such wonders in the land of Ham,
such awesome deeds at the Sea of Reeds.

He thought of putting an end to them,
had not Moses, his chosen one,
taken a stand in the breach and confronted him,
to turn his anger away from destroying them.

   

John 5: 31-47

Were I to testify on my own behalf,
my testimony would not be true;
but there is another witness
   who speaks on my behalf,
and I know that his testimony is true.
You sent messengers to John,
and he gave his testimony to the truth—
not that I depend on human testimony;
no, it is for your salvation
   that I mention it.
John was a lamp lit and shining
and for a time you were content
   to enjoy the light that he gave.
But my testimony is greater than John’s:
the deeds my Father has given me
   to perform,
these same deeds of mine
testify that the Father has sent me.
Besides, the Father who sent me
bears witness to me himself.
You have never heard his voice,
you have never seen his shape,
and his word finds no home in you
because you do not believe
in the one whom he has sent.

You pore over the scriptures,
believing that in them
   you can find eternal life;
it is these scriptures that testify to me,
and yet you refuse to come to me
   to receive life!
Human glory means nothing to me.
Besides, I know you too well:
you have no love of God in you.
I have come in the name of my Father
and you refuse to accept me;
if someone else should come
    in his own name
you would accept him.
How can you believe,
since you look to each other for glory
and are not concerned
with the glory that comes
   from the one God?
Do not imagine
   that I am going to accuse you
       before the Father:
you have placed your hopes on Moses,
and Moses will be the one
   who accuses you.
If you really believed him
you would believe me too,
since it was about me that he was writing;
but if you will not believe what he wrote,
how can you believe what I say?

                R. Babies are beautiful and
                mostly people love to watch them — so
                sweet and innocent —

                It seems for the young they have a
                    life ahead of them and they can
                    think of living, of being in the moment,

                But pains and disappointments can make
                    us soar and lose the desire to
                    fight for life, to live the Plan God
                    had for us —

                Life is for living —

                Living in oneness with God —
                    with love in our heart —
                    knowing how He planned the world
                    and created it harmonious
                    and with order and good things —

                The first rebellion of men came from
                    Adam and Eve tempted by satan —
                   
                The fallen angels rebelled against God —
                    Satan said "I will not serve"
 

                God so good to us
                God was so good to Adam and Eve —

                We are to be happy and see things
                    through the eyes of God.

                Gospel from Today

 

John 5: 17-30

His answer to them was, 'My Father still goes on working, and I am at work, too.' But that only made the Jews even more intent on killing him, because not only was he breaking the Sabbath, but he spoke of God as his own Father and so made himself God's equal.
    To this Jesus replied:

  In all truth I tell you,
  by himself the Son can do nothing;
  he can do only
      what he sees the Father doing:
  and whatever the Father does
      the Son does too.
  For the Father loves the Son
  and shows him everything
      he himself does,
  and he will show him
      even greater things than these,
  works that will astonish you.
  Thus, as the Father raises the dead
      and gives them life,
  so the Son gives life to anyone he chooses;
  for the Father judges no one;
  he has entrusted all judgement to the Son,
  so that all may honour the Son
  as they honour the Father.
  Whoever refuses honour to the Son
  refuses to honour the Father
      who sent him.
  In all truth I tell you,
  whoever listens to my words,
  and believes in the one who sent me,
  has eternal life;
  without being brought to judgement
  such a person
      has passed from death to life.
  In all truth I tell you,
  the hour is coming --
      indeed it is already here --
  when the dead
      will hear the voice of the Son of God,
  and all who hear it will live.
  For as the Father has life in himself,
  so he has granted the Son also
      to have life in himself;
  and, because he is the Son of man,
  has granted him power
      to give judgement.
  Do not be surprised at this,
  for the hour is coming
  when the dead will leave their graves
  at the sound of his voice:
  those who did good
  will come forth to life;
  and those who did evil
      will come forth to judgement.
  By myself I can do nothing;
  I can judge only as I am told to judge,
  and my judging is just,
  because I seek to do not my own will
  but the will of him who sent me.

   

                R. I saw the oneness of Jesus and His
                    Father today at Mass and it made
                    my heart burn —

                I knew all the love I have for Jesus —
                    the way I know Jesus makes me
                    so much more intimately united to
                    God the Father and the Holy Spirit  —

                I remember 15 or more years ago
                    sitting before the tabernacle and
                    knowing my love to be there with
                    Jesus, truly present and then
                    being more deeply one with God
                    by meditating on the Father and Holy Spirit
                    dwelling in my graced baptized soul —

                Za - Za - Zoom — How to describe knowing
                    the presence of God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit
                    in me — So big — So deep — So much —
                    God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit dwelling in
                    my graced baptized soul —

                Oh and then I knew all in the Movement
                    united in love in my heart and
                    my unity with my family —
                    and the community, the Church, the
                    world, the saints, the souls in
                    purgatory —

                ONENESS —

                UNITY

                HARMONY

                Feeling full of love and united in
                    my heart —

                The beatific vision in heaven
                    is being wrapped in the love
                    of Father, Son and Holy Spirit
                    knowing love, perfection
                    Being full of grace
                    Being full of His life —

                Seeing with this knowledge of God —
                    experiencing perfect love in heaven!!!

                Knowing oneness —

                When we read this Gospel we
                    see Jesus teach us about the
                    oneness of Jesus and the Father.
                    But this knowledge of the
                    3 Persons of the Trinity in one
                    God is a mystery —
                    and we know the word in
                    our hearts —

                No one can ever explain in words,
                    it is a 'living' in Him —
                    it is living the Word —
                    it is intimacy with the Persons
                        of the Trinity and
                        knowing the oneness of God —

                The Trinity dwelling in our
                    graced, baptized soul —

                Oh it is knowing God —
                It is knowing harmony as He desires —
                It is embracing the truth —

                There is one way —
                It is God's will —

                Like a golfer they can hit to the
                    right, the left — be short —
                    in the woods
                    in the water
                    in the trees
                    etc. — etc. —

                It is seeing the goal —
                    intimacy with God —
                    It is loving because God is love —
                    It is doing the Father's will —

                Not living in the trees, the woods,
                    the water, the sand wondering
                    why we hit our life over
                    there when God's truth is the
                    rudder —
                    His Plan the way —

                Our hearts living to be filled
                    with His life and more and more
                    loving, united, harmonious
                    is what we are to be
                    like the Heart of Christ —

                Only we can choose His way of love —

                We can give up the chance to see through
                    His eyes and be a winner —
                    when we take our focus off of
                    the goal He set and created us
                    for —

                Happiness is in Him —
                Happiness is in having a heart like
                    Christ

                Be a winner, not a loser

                Only in choosing life, fighting
                    for God's Plan will we
                    be the winner we can be —
                    Living in Him —
                   

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

    

 

Colossians 1: 15-20

He is the image of the unseen God,
the first–born of all creation,
for in him were created all things
in heaven and on earth:
everything visible
    and everything invisible,
thrones, ruling forces,
    sovereignties, powers—
all things were created through him
    and for him.
He exists before all things
and in him all things hold together,
and he is the Head of the Body,
that is, the Church.

He is the Beginning,
the first–born from the dead,
so that he should be supreme in every way;
because God wanted all fullness
    to be found in him
and through him
    to reconcile all things to him,
everything in heaven
    and everything on earth,
by making peace through his death
    on the cross.

 

                Jesus: I am the Bridegroom
                    of your soul —
                    I love you so much!

               

                Given March 22, 2012

                R. The pains of the heart can be
                so bad that a person shuts down
                their heart, but we are to be the
                best that we can be as
                God calls us —

                    To be the best we can
                be — to admit the pains
                of the heart, but not to dig
                a hole and pull everyone
                around us in our hole with us —

                    God calls us to live —
                    God calls us to give —
                    God calls us to love —

                    God is with us — we are
                to be one with Him —

                    When I was 5 my mom
                died and that is what
                happened — I had to live
                with that —

                My mom was holy — God
                called her home —

                    She gave me life —
                She gave Fr. Joe life —
                God calls us to live —
                    to give —
                    to love —

                We were born for a purpose —

                Created by God —

                God wants us in heaven with
                    Him for all eternity —

                Life is short —

                We have only so many days
                    to give to others
                    as God intends us to —

                Babies grow up —

                They can't stay babies
                    young men grow old
                    and then they die

                It is God's plan for us
                    to be courageous in
                    our vocation —
                    to follow God's call for us —

                Our heart is meant for love —
                    It doesn't die if one
                    person is our life leaves
                    or dies —

                We can punish ourselves and
                    others far more than anybody
                    can punish us and we blame others for
                    a 2 minute thing somebody did —
                    A person punishing themselves,
                    not forgiving turns our
                    life to misery —

                People get sick and die everyday —
                Everybody is born and everybody
                    dies —

                We will lose our loved
                    ones —

                People all over the world are
                    divorced by people who
                    betrayed them —
                    a person losing someone
                    is not alone —

                Parents die, babies die,
                    brothers and sisters die —

                Some people killed in accidents —
                Some people commit suicide —

                Life is precious and is to be
                    lived and we are to not
                    close ourselves down —

                All over the world people
                    lose people —

                But God gave us life and
                    wants us in heaven
                    with Him forever —

                I know my mom is in heaven —
                    Fr. Carter is in heaven —

                Heaven is in the Plan
                    of the Father —
                    He wants us to go
                    to heaven —

                We are to love, to give —
                    to be like Jesus —

                We will not be on this earth
                    forever —

                We are winners when we stay
                    focused on the goal —
                    We prepare for the goal —

                We are to love —

                We must stay focused —

                Work together as a team —
                On God's team —

                When attacked we don't
                    open the door wide to
                    satan in anger and jealousy
                    and envy and pride —
                    our goal is heaven —

                A person can punish everybody
                    because they were hurt —

                What about all the people
                    we are to love, if we
                    cripple under one loss
                    and hurt others — denying
                    our behavior and
                    neglecting to do what God wants —
                    not doing God's will,
                    but rebelling against
                    God's plan for us —
                    we will have a lot of misery,
                    disharmony, darkness we fill inside
                    because we are opposing God
                    and what He wants.

                God gives us to each other
                    to share, not to possess
                    or hold onto each other slavishly —

                When all are doing God's will
                    in a community, family,
                    a team — it makes
                    a powerful team —

                The Trinity is the most perfect
                    community —

                God gives us the sacraments —
                God wants us to live our vocation —

                God gives us each other and
                    sometimes people we
                    love die young or
                    betray us, we have to
                    work in our vocation and
                    work through the bitter
                    grief —

                God loves us so much and
                He gives us people to help us
                    grow —

                Jesus is the greatest teacher —

                We can rebel against the
                    guides God sends us and
                    say we know it all ourselves —

                We can have faith in God —

                Digging a hole and crawling
                    in is being in a hole —

                We can start winning today —
                    staying focused on God's Plan —

                Working with the people God
                    put us with in love —

                God wants us to not be in competition,
                    but work as a team with
                    different talents and different
                    capabilities —

                When a person dies — It feels
                    as if all stops outside a
                    Church, as all focus on
                    the funeral —

                Life goes on outside the
                    Church —

                Babies grow up — get old and die
                Life is letting go
                    and growing in Him for our
                    reward in heaven —

                Let go and love —
                Work God's plan —

                Don't rebel against it and give
                    into satan's plan —

                There will be autumns and
                    summers and winters and springs
                    after we are gone

 

 

     

 

Excerpt from Priestly Newsletter 1998 - ISSUE FOUR

    Shortly before he was to die from cancer, Joseph Cardinal Bernardin left us these inspiring words about peace: "It is the first day of November, and fall is giving way to winter. Soon the trees will lose the vibrant colors of their leaves and snow will cover the ground. The earth will shut down, and people will race to and from their destinations bundled up for warmth. Chicago winters are harsh. It is a time of dying.

    "But we know that spring will soon come with all its new life and wonder.

    "It is quite clear that I will not be alive in the spring. But I will soon experience new life in a different way...

    "What I would like to leave behind is a simple prayer that each of you may find what I have found—God's special gift to us all: the gift of peace. When we are at peace, we find the freedom to be most fully who we are, even in the worst of times. We let go of what is non-essential and embrace what is essential. We empty ourselves so that God may more fully work within us. And we become instruments in the hands of the Lord."

                Jesus: Enjoy your life today —

                Serve Me —
                Love Me —

                Love one another —
                Trust in God —
                Have Faith in God and
                Love, Love, Love —

                Listen to the song of the birdie,
                    It is a song of sweetness —

                R. We can be wounded healers —

                If we suffered — we can be
                    wounded healers —

                Not try to pull ourselves down
                    in a hole and take people
                    who love us down with us —

                Life is for living and loving and
                    doing God's will —
                    Working God's Plan —
                    Being a team player —
                    Thanking God for our
                        brother and
                    Knowing his strengths
                        will help strengthen
                        the team —

                Play God's Game to Win —

                What we give keeps on giving —
                What we give comes back to us —

                Our heart is to be a heart like
                    Jesus —
                    A heart of love —
                    We can give love to others
                        and it keeps giving
                        love —

                God made us to give, to
                    live, to share, to
                    be a team —

                We can roll over and expect
                    somebody to come and serve
                    us as we are angry or

                We can live God's plan
                    to live the pascal mystery
                    of death/resurrection —

                We are to be brothers in Christ —

                Sing: Healer of Our Every Ill

                A person hating all day does more
                    damage to themselves day
                    after day — than somebody
                    they blame it on for doing
                    nothing much to them —

                Life is to be lived in Him —

  

John 17: 1-13

    After saying this, Jesus raised his eyes to heaven and said:

    Father, the hour has come:
    glorify your Son
    so that your Son may glorify you;
    so that, just as you have given him
       power over all humanity,
    he may give eternal life
       to all those you have entrusted to him.
    And eternal life is this:
    to know you,
    the only true God,
    and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.
    I have glorified you on earth
    by finishing the work
    that you gave me to do.
    Now, Father, glorify me
    with that glory I had with you
    before ever the world existed.
    I have revealed your name
    to those whom you took from the world
       to give me.
    They were yours
       and you gave them to me,
    and they have kept your word.
    Now at last they have recognised
    that all you have given me
       comes from you
    for I have given them
    the teaching you gave to me,
    and they have indeed accepted it
    and know for certain
       that I came from you,
    and have believed
       that it was you who sent me.
    It is for them that I pray.
    I am not praying for the world
    but for those you have given me,
    because they belong to you.
    All I have is yours
    and all you have is mine,
    and in them I am glorified.
    I am no longer in the world,
    but they are in the world,
    and I am coming to you.
    Holy Father,
    keep those you have given me
       true to your name,
    so that they may be one like us.
    While I was with them,
    I kept those you had given me
       true to your name.
    I have watched over them
       and not one is lost
    except one who was destined to be lost,
    and this was to fulfil the scriptures.
    But now I am coming to you
    and I say these things in the world
    to share my joy with them to the full.

God Calls Us to Love

John 13:34

I give you a new commandment: love one another; you must love one another just as I have loved you.

Matthew 7:7

Ask, and it will be given to you; search, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened to you.

Messenger: Dear Jesus, I stand at the door of Your Heart and knock to come in. I want entry - to be lost totally and entirely in Thee. I want to be sheltered inside of Your Heart and wrapped deeply in Your infinite love.

Jesus: I call you, child, to love. Love is rooted in Me. I gave My all for love of you. I held nothing back. Love gives freely for the good of the other. Love exists to draw the other closer to God. If your relationship with your brother in anyway separates you from God, it is not love.

    Love is not haughty, love does not demand its own way, love exists to lead the other to closer union with Me. I loved you to My death. I gave to you My all! I ask you to give your all for your beloved brothers. In loving them, you are loving Me. I live in your brothers. How can you love Me who you do not see, if you do not love your brother who you see.

    I am the way. I am the truth. I am the life. I give that you will know Me and know how to love one another. Love your brothers as I have loved you. When they persecute you and holler every evil word against you, love them. This is My way - to lay down My life for My friends.

John 13:34

I give you a new commandment: love one another; you must love one another just as I have loved you.

Messenger: And to those who heeded His words, their lives were lived in peace and love and they experienced joy in their hearts, for true love brings peace and true love gives joy to the heart of the beholder. It is in loving that you receive, it is in giving that you are rendered to and it is in following the way of Christ that we are led into a life of everlasting happiness.

Jesus: I have not gone. I live with you this day. I am in your brothers. Love them as I have loved you.

Messenger: And He sent them such blessings in such abundance and  they knew a little of His unending mercy and love.

 

October 1, 1994

I Feed the Hungry Soul

Jesus: Another person cannot feed your hungry soul. You search, you seek. Your starved soul craves only that which I can give. When your heart is searching for love, come, My sweet dear child, into My Heart. My Mother will take you to the deepest recesses of My Heart. There you will know such comfort - in My Heart on fire for love of you this day.

    You are a child of dignity. You are precious to Me. You are the creation of the Father. I gave the last drop of My blood for you. This is love - you need grace to realize the immenseness of God's love. You are so special to God, all three Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Mary loves you so much.

    You can never be satisfied on this earth. If you find the dearest mother, father, lover, friend, they will not fill you with the love your soul craves. To find Me is to seek Me. You will not be satisfied on this earth.

    You, My child, experience longing for My intense love. I love you to want Me. This is how I long for love of each precious soul. I long for them with the most tender Heart, beating and breathing with fire. I never falter. I never grow dim. I am the same, with the same burning love. Come to Me and jump into My precious Heart. I love you so much.

 

October 2, 1994

You Are the Father’s Creation

Jesus: I come to you in one another. Let not your hearts be hard, let your hearts be as little children, tender and pure. They do not hold grudges, they love each other, they love themselves.

    You are the creation of My beloved Father. You were created with such dignity and love. I died for you. I gave My life that you would share My life. Oh, My child, pray to the Holy Spirit to open your eyes, to let you see where you are blind, to open your hearts to the ways of God. Pray to Him to sanctify you.

    You are called to be Christ to one another. Your hearts have turned hard. Your ways are not My ways. My way is always to love. My ways are to give. My ways are to see in your brother the creation of the Father, so beautiful, so uniquely created.

    Each child is a gift from God to this world. Each child is a gift of unique love, given by the Father. You were uniquely created. You are so loved. Pray to know your specialness to God. It is in realizing His love for you that you will love your brothers.

Messenger: We are all brothers in Christ. God is our Father. We are all one.

Jesus: Join, My little ones, in such love. It is in loving that you will be at peace. Love of each other creates joy in your hearts. Pray for the grace to know and love God more. It is in this knowledge and God's love that you will be My light that shines in the darkest night.

    I am the Way, I am the Truth. I am the Life! To live in Me you must come to know and love Me. Follow My ways. My ways are the ways of truth. My ways are not always the easy way, they are the ways of love.

    If you are to be joined in your hearts, you must love every man. Every man is your brother. You must put on Christ in all your ways. Would Christ act as you are acting?

    I love you so much. It is in meditating on My love for you that you will love your brothers.

    I put you on this earth to love one another. Pray to the Spirit to know My ways. I am Jesus, Son of the Living God. I truly come to bring you new life. It is in Me you will have the light of life. I love you so, the Father loves you so, the Spirit wants to live in your hearts and make you alive with the love of God. Pray to Mary to lead you through her loving heart into such love of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

    My child, come to My ever burning Heart. I do not love you one moment and forget you the next. I am forever burning brightly for you. I never falter. I am forever on fire for love of you. If you forget Me, I never ever forget you, I love you so much.

 

October 4, 1994

These Messages Need to Circulate

Jesus: My dear children, I tell you to listen to Me here. I am delivering messages for all to be read and distributed. Souls need to read these messages. Your Center will grow in love of Me when you circulate these messages. I ask. You have a free will. These are My letters of love to all. They are not being read. I deliver these messages to you to deliver to My faithful ones. Please, I beg you to circulate My messages. What more do I say to you!

    This world is moving further and further from Me. I control your every breath. Do you think you are independent of He Who keeps you alive, second by second?

    You do not know how truly frail you are? You do not control the air, the water, the sun, your food. You are dependent on Me for your existence, second by second.

    I am your Most loving Savior. I speak to you here. Please listen to Me. This is an urgent request. I love you so and love each hurting soul. All the Blue Books have different messages. They speak to all of you. They need to be published. I will provide the funds to see to this. Your delays are stopping the progress of so many returning to My most intimate love. I beg you, please answer My plea.

Guiding Light - Reflect on the Word
Inspiring Homilies Covering Cycle B of the Liturgical Year
$ 15.00 plus postage

Guiding Light homily series - Reflect on the Word - Cycle B     The Word leaves an impression on our souls. In my thoughts and reflections are born a more tangible understanding of these eternal concepts presented in the Gospels and the readings. Anyone can read a sentence, but not anyone can absorb it's true meaning. Truth, in this day and age, is almost a matter of opinion or individual entitlement. We believe that Christ's truth is our Roman Catholic Church. We, as priests, champion it's teachings; we are ambassadors for the Pope and Christ to those faces looking at us. We are the light by which our congregation reads to reflect upon real truth and we do it hand in hand. $15

Guiding Light - Steadfast to the Son
Inspiring Homilies Covering Cycle A of the Liturgical Year
$ 15.00 plus postage

Guiding Light homily series - Steadfast to the Son - Cycle A    The sunflower is a great example of how we should be steadfastly guided by light. What a powerful thought that this exceptional plant is not stuck in one pose day in and day out, yet adaptable and magnetized to the sun. We feel the same about our Son. Our heads turns to face Christ as each day presents its challenges to find light. We join together like plants in a field and soak up the Son through the pulpit. We are a warm circle of strength using the wind of our breath to carry our priests' words, Christ's words, to new rich soil. $15

Guiding Light - Feed My Soul
Inspiring Homilies Covering Cycle C of the Liturgical Year
$ 10.00 plus postage

Guiding Light - Feed My Soul
Inspiring Homilies Covering Cycle C of the Liturgical Year
$ 15.00 plus postage

Guiding Light - Feed My Soul - Cycle C    In a world rapidly advancing and encouraging personal gain, we are faced with modern problems. There is a challenge to find time in our busy schedules for Sunday Mass or a family meal. We are able to research, shop, bank and even work without hearing one human voice. It is no wonder that we may often feel disconnected and famished at our week's end. In Fr. Joe's third book of homilies from Cycle C, we are reminded of the charity that Christ intended us to show each other. We have a calling to turn the other cheek and be the Good Samaritan to others. We are rewarded with the Father's kingdom and love when we are not worthy. We are not left alone or hungry. $15

Guiding Light - Focusing on the Word
Inspiring Homilies Covering Cycle B of the Liturgical Year
$ 15.00 plus postage

Guiding Light - Focusing on the Word - Cycle B    At times we may feel that our path to Christ is a bit "out of focus". Like the disciples in the Book of Mark, this ordinary life clouds our vision of Christ's Divinity. We may doubt the practicality or possibility of applying His teachings and example to our modern life. Cycle B's homilies are a "guiding light" to help us realize Jesus' Messianic greatness and His promise of better things to come. $15

Guiding Light - The Word Alive in Our Hearts

$ 10.00  plus postage

Priestly Newsletter - 2000 #1 - CD. - Christ is Our Strength - Fr. Edward Carter, S.J. read it the year he died. It is so beautiful. "This brief passage contains one of the greatest lessons of the spiritual life. As we progress along our spiritual journey, we become increasingly aware of how weak we are in our-selves, but how strong we are in Christ. To experience our weakness involves suffering. The degree and kind of suffering can vary. The suffering can include the experience of the classical dark night of the spirit as described by St. John of the Cross. One of the main purposes of the dark night is to make a person keenly aware of his or her helplessness without God." quote by Fr. Carter from the newsletter $10

His voice is so powerful as he read each Newsletter from his heart and soul. "Every man has his own share in the redemption. Each one is also called to share in that suffering through which the redemption was accomplished. He is called to share in that suffering through which all human suffering has also been redeemed. In bringing about the redemption through suffering, Christ has also raised human suffering to the level of the redemption. Thus each man in his suffering can also become a sharer in the redemptive suffering of Christ..." quote by Fr. Carter from the newsletter $10
