Messenger:           The Mass is such a gift God gives us.

                            The priest is a gift.

Jesus speaks:        My child, I give you the gift of the


                        My child, this is your treasure.

                        Oh do not let satan talk in your

                            heads and try to get you bowed

                            down, Oh My People — give

                            Me your heart and your love —

                        Oh My People, focus on Me

                            and not yourself —

                        Focus on Me

                        Focus on Me,

                        I am the Divine God —

                        Meditate on the Mystery —

                        Satan can attack right

                            before you may experience

                            tremendous joy —

                        Do not give into him.

                        He wants you to suffer.

                        When he attacks you —

                            you can have great pain —

                            pray to resist his temptation

                            to try to get you to focus

                            on yourselves.

                        Pray the rosary.

                        Pray the Mysteries of Light.

                        Meditate on the Transfiguration

                        Meditate on the Kingdom of God —

                        Meditate on the Miracles I performed.

                        Oh My people I give you the

                            gift of baptism.

                        I give you a special

                            sharing in My life.

                        Everyday the sun comes up.

                        Oh as prayer chapters are

                            started all over the earth

                            it will be little cities

                            of My light.

                        I will outpour My grace on those

                            who pray My prayers for   

                            the priest, the Church and

                            the world.

                        I outpour My grace in

                            the Eucharist.

                        My Shepherds the light is dawning —

                        You must pray as My Shepherds of Christ

                            for grace for the world.

                        Oh My people, I give you these

                            prayers to pray at 6:20.

                        Fr. Carter almost always prayed

                            these prayers at 6:20.

                        Play his tape or disc at 6:20.

                        Tune into the Shepherds of Christ radio

                            and listen to this tape and

                            pray united as a body at

                            6:20 for the priests, the

                            Church and the world.

Messenger:           This message given 11 days before Mary

                            appeared in Clearwater.


First Friday - December 6, 1996

Jesus: I am calling you as a family. You will be joined in one heart, acting as My Heart beating in this world. All the apostles in the Shepherds of Christ Movement are joined in one Heart.

R. The core leaders will contact the coordinators. The coordinators will contact the individual apostles. All are apostles with a job directed by Jesus to do. Her peace plan was given at Fatima:

  1. Until a sufficient number of people have consecrated their hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, we will not have peace in the world.
  2. Mary has requested all to pray the daily rosary.
  3. We must observe the Five First Saturday devotion:
    - Communion, confession (within 8 days before or after the Saturday), recital of the rosary, meditating for 15 minutes on the mysteries of the rosary. All this is to be done in spirit of reparation.
  4. We must make reparation to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

His plan centers around this.

We have heads functioning in the individual ministries. Everything we do leads to consecration of hearts. As the apostles press on the three institutions, the Church, family, and school to help spread the consecration, the strayed ones will be led home to His Heart.

Mary said at Fatima until a sufficient number of people have consecrated their hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, we will not have peace in the world.

The present condition of the world

am_p182.gif (16895 bytes)

Peace will come when hearts are hearts of love. The scales must shift. It will happen through the consecration. Mary's peace plan: until a sufficient amount of people consecrate their hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, we will not have peace.

am_p183.gif (16494 bytes)

The Father looks to the earth; He sees much darkness.

Image3.gif (1823 bytes)

The Father looks to the earth. There are few hearts fervently in love with God. The hearts of love light up the earth. It is as lights on a Christmas tree. It is sparsely lighted by a few hearts. Therefore, the tree looks dark.

Image4.gif (2641 bytes)

As the Shepherds of Christ Movement spreads (as well as other movements focused on spreading consecration to Their Hearts) the tree is covered with more hearts and the earth becomes more lighted.

The tree is covered with hearts consecrated to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. The tree is illuminated.

As the Shepherds of Christ apostles spread the consecration to the Church, the family, and the school, the tree is covered with lights and the earth is covered with the fire of His love.

The Father looks to the earth now. He is displeased with the hearts of men. The Father wants us to love God and love each other. He wants us to live according to His will in love.

Mary appears at Fatima. She tells us that we are offending God. She tells us what we must do. Mary's peace plan:

  1. Until a sufficient number of people have consecrated their hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, we will not have peace in the world.
  2. Mary has requested all to pray the daily rosary.
  3. We must observe the First Saturday devotion.
  4. We must make reparation to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

Mary said there will be an era of peace, no matter what we do, in which the Sacred Heart of Jesus will reign and the Immaculate Heart of Mary will triumph.

Man disobeys, the devil blocks the Fatima message. World War II happens just as Mary said.

Mary appeared to me for 14 months daily. She gives us the same message as Fatima. Jesus and Mary give us God's Blue Book and Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. He writes His message of love on our hearts. His life lives in our hearts. The Scripture and the Mass live in our hearts.

In the Shepherds of Christ Movement, our focus is on the priest.

Jesus speaks:        Don't give into satan.

                        My apostles I have called you to be

                            Shepherds of Christ.

                            Spring —



                                soon turns into winter


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."

Genesis Chapter 3 

The Fall

Now, the snake was the most subtle of all the wild animals that Yahweh God had made. It asked the woman, 'Did God really say you were not to eat from any of the trees in the garden?' The woman answered the snake, 'We may eat the fruit of the trees in the garden. But of the fruit of the tree in the middle of the garden God said, "You must not eat it, nor touch it, under pain of death." ' Then the snake said to the woman, 'No! You will not die! God knows in fact that the day you eat it your eyes will be opened and you will be like gods, knowing good from evil.' The woman saw that the tree was good to eat and pleasing to the eye, and that it was enticing for the wisdom that it could give. So she took some of its fruit and ate it. She also gave some to her husband who was with her, and he ate it. Then the eyes of both of them were opened and they realised that they were naked. So they sewed fig-leaves together to make themselves loin-cloths.

The man and his wife heard the sound of Yahweh God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid from Yahweh God among the trees of the garden. But Yahweh God called to the man. 'Where are you?' he asked. 'I heard the sound of you in the garden,' he replied. 'I was afraid because I was naked, so I hid.' 'Who told you that you were naked?' he asked. 'Have you been eating from the tree I forbade you to eat?' The man replied, 'It was the woman you put with me; she gave me some fruit from the tree, and I ate it.' Then Yahweh God said to the woman, 'Why did you do that?' The woman replied, 'The snake tempted me and I ate.'

Then Yahweh God said to the snake, 'Because you have done this,

    Accursed be you
    of all animals wild and tame!
    On your belly you will go
    and on dust you will feed
    as long as you live.
    I shall put enmity
    between you and the woman,
    and between your offspring and hers;
    it will bruise your head
    and you will strike its heel.'

    To the woman he said:

    I shall give you intense pain
        in childbearing,
    you will give birth to your children
        in pain.
    Your yearning will be for your husband,
    and he will dominate you.

To the man he said, 'Because you listened to the voice of your wife and ate from the tree of which I had forbidden you to eat,

    Accursed be the soil because of you!
    Painfully will you get your food from it
    as long as you live.
    It will yield you brambles and thistles,
    as you eat the produce of the land.
    By the sweat of your face

    will you earn you food,
    until you return to the ground,
    as you were taken from it.
    For dust you are
    and to dust you shall return.

The man named his wife 'Eve' because she was the mother of all those who live. Yahweh God made tunics of skins for the man and his wife and clothed them. Then Yahweh God said, 'Now that the man has become like one of us in knowing good from evil, he must not be allowed to reach out his hand and pick from the tree of life too, and eat and live for ever!' So Yahweh God expelled him from the garden of Eden, to till the soil from which he had been taken. He banished the man, and in front of the garden of Eden he posted the great winged creatures and the fiery flashing sword, to guard the way to the tree of life.

John 3: 14-21

as Moses lifted up the snake in the desert, so must the Son of man be lifted up; so that everyone who believes may have eternal life in him. 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. For God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but so that through him the world might be saved. No one who believes in him will be judged; but whoever does not believe is judged already, because that person does not believe in the Name of God’s only Son. And the judgement is this: though the light has come into the world people have preferred darkness to the light because their deeds were evil. And indeed, everybody who does wrong hates the light and avoids it, to prevent his actions from being shown up; but whoever does the truth comes out into the light, so that what he is doing may plainly appear as done in God.’

Excerpt of The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius, by Louis J. Puhl, S.J.



The one of Christ, our supreme leader and lord,
the other of Lucifer, the deadly enemy of our
human nature

PRAYER.   The usual preparatory prayer.

window at a former Jesuit Seminary

137. FIRST PRELUDE.   This is the history. Here it will be that Christ calls and wants all beneath His standard, and Lucifer, on the other hand, wants all under his.

138. SECOND PRELUDE.   This is a mental representation of the place. It will be here to see a great plain, comprising the whole region about Jerusalem, where the sovereign Commander-in-Chief of all the good is Christ our Lord; and another plain about the region of Babylon, where the chief of the enemy is Lucifer.

139. THIRD PRELUDE.   This is to ask for what I desire. Here it will be to ask for a knowledge of the deceits of the rebel chief and help to guard myself against them; and also to ask for a knowledge of the true life exemplified in the sovereign and true Commander, and the grace to imitate Him.



140. FIRST POINT.   Imagine you see the chief of all the enemy in the vast plain about Babylon, seated on a great throne of fire and smoke, his appearance inspiring horror and terror.

141. SECOND POINT.   Consider how he summons innumerable demons, and scatters them, some to one city and some to another, throughout the whole world, so that no province, no place, no state of life, no individual is overlooked.

142. THIRD POINT.   Consider the address he makes to them, how he goads them on to lay snares for men and bind them with chains. First they are to tempt them to covet riches (as Satan himself is accustomed to do in most cases) that they may the more easily attain the empty honors of this world, and then come to overweening pride.

   The first step, then, will be riches, the second honor, the third pride. From these three steps the evil one leads to all other vices.



143.   In a similar way, we are to picture to ourselves the sovereign and true Commander, Christ our Lord.

144. FIRST POINT.   Consider Christ our Lord, standing in a lowly place in a great plain about the region of Jerusalem, His appearance beautiful and attractive.

145. SECOND POINT.   Consider how the Lord of all the world chooses so many persons, apostles, disciples, etc., and sends them throughout the whole world to spread His sacred doctrine among all men, no matter what their state or condition.

146. THIRD POINT.   . . .

Messenger:          I beg God for grace at Mass.

                        When I am distracted, I can't

A Prayer before the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass

    Let me be a holy sacrifice and unite with God in the sacrament of His greatest love.

    I want to be one in Him in this act of love, where He gives Himself to me and I give myself as a sacrifice to Him. Let me be a holy sacrifice as I become one with Him in this my act of greatest love to Him.

    Let me unite with Him more, that I may more deeply love Him. May I help make reparation to His adorable Heart and the heart of His Mother, Mary. With greatest love, I offer myself to You and pray that You will accept my sacrifice of greatest love. I give myself to You and unite in Your gift of Yourself to me. Come and possess my soul.

    Cleanse me, strengthen me, heal me. Dear Holy Spirit act in the heart of Mary to make me more and more like Jesus.

    Father, I offer this my sacrifice, myself united to Jesus in the Holy Spirit to You. Help me to love God more deeply in this act of my greatest love.

    Give me the grace to grow in my knowledge, love and service of You and for this to be my greatest participation in the Mass. Give me the greatest graces to love You so deeply in this Mass, You who are so worthy of my love.

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.

                            for Him.

                        God comes to me.

                        I receive the Divine God through

                            the hands of a priest.

                        Oh my God my love is so strong

                            for our priests and my thankfulness

                            for them.

                        Oh that I could only stay so deeply

                            one with Him at every moment.

                        My life is lived in this constant giving

                            of myself to Him.

                        In troubles, anxieties, joys,

                            feelings of weakness, I

                            love the Mass so much.

                        It is my strength to go to Mass because

                            so many gifts are given to me.

                        It is grace — God outpours His grace

                            on me at Mass, but also, I

                            pray so deeply for the souls of

                            this earth and always in my

                            heart in my every breathe is

                            my prayer for our priests.

                            I love them so much and thank our

                            beloved God for them.

Messenger:          And so it has been a while since

                            Jesus gave me a message, but

                            my heart is very active all the

                            time as I carry out His work

                            as His messenger and one

                            given the direction by Fr. Carter

                            and Jesus to direct this Movement

                            according to the rules and

                            way of life set by Fr. Carter

                            and by Jesus.

Messenger:          Oh the burning fire of the love of the

                            Heart of Jesus ——

                        The Divine God is with us today ——

                            truly present in the Eucharist —

                        God gives us the gift of the Mass —

                        God gives us the sacraments —

                        God gives us the priest —

                        Oh I love to look so closely at

                            the bread and then be there

                            while the priest consecrates it.

                        I watch so closely — My heart is so

                            overjoyed — my life so centered

                            in that point of consecration

                            in the Mass —

                        I am in such joy to be there —

                        My life is centered all day around the Mass.

                        My time I spend with Jesus before the

                            tabernacle is my gift.

                        I receive so much grace in that hour to

                            help me do whatever I do — I can't

                            skip it, I want to be there —

                            I love to pray — I love to be

                            with Him, I need His grace, I

                            want a great outpouring of His


                        Fr. Carter always said this is the richest

                            source of God's grace in being

                            with Him in front of the tabernacle

                            and receiving Him at Mass because

                            Jesus is truly present there in

                            His Divinity and Humanity.

                        If we can't go to the tabernacle we can't

                            go, but there is this enormous

                            grace outpoured in His Eucharistic

                            presence because He is truly

                            present in His Divinity and Humanity.

                        I write for the people, the Church and the

                            world in a state of becoming —

                            becoming more mature in the

                            way God wants them to develop

                            in Him.

                        I live in this existence in Him.

                        My every breathe is lived to help

                            the souls.

                        My life an offering to Him praying

                            always for the priests, the Church

                            and the world.

                        If we really want to live as God wants

                            us to — we would be living as

                            Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart

                            of Jesus.

                            This sums up our intentions in

                                our life, lived for Him, to

                                build up the Kingdom.

                        This message was given to Fr Carter -

                                early in 1995.

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.




Messenger:          Oh Mary asked for our bishops to consecrate

                            their dioceses to the Sacred Heart

                            of Jesus and the Immaculate

                            Heart of Mary.

                                We encourage all Bishops to become
                                     Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart
                                     and to consecrate their diocese
                                     to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.



March 30, 2003 message continues

Messenger:          If we centered in this —

                        —>  the people of the earth making

                                        Jesus the King and Center of

                                        their hearts.

                        —>  If we would consecrate all

                                         places, churches, homes etc.

                                         to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and

                                        Immaculate Heart of Mary

                                        we would be on our way to peace.

                        FR. CARTER SAID, MARY

                            SAID AT FATIMA —

until a sufficient number of people make and live the consecration, we will not have peace in the world.


Messenger:          Oh God help us.

                        Oh God we pray.

                        Mary is the Queen of Peace.

                        The Father sent her as a messenger —

                            He isn't going to change

                                His mind —

                            We must listen to her

                            We must pray the rosary

               1.  Matthew 17: 1-2

    Six days later, Jesus took with him Peter and James and his brother John and led them up a high mountain by themselves. There in their presence he was transfigured: his face shone like the sun and his clothes became as dazzling as light. 

               2.   Matthew 17: 3-5

 And suddenly Moses and Elijah appeared to them; they were talking with him. Then Peter spoke to Jesus. ‘Lord,’ he said, ‘it is wonderful for us to be here; if you want me to, I will make three shelters here, one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.’ He was still speaking when suddenly a bright cloud covered them with shadow, and suddenly from the cloud there came a voice which said, ‘This is my Son, the Beloved; he enjoys my favour. Listen to him.’

               3.   Matthew 17: 6-8

 When they heard this, the disciples fell on their faces, overcome with fear. But Jesus came up and touched them, saying, ‘Stand up, do not be afraid.’ And when they raised their eyes they saw no one but Jesus.

                  4.  Matthew 17: 9

As they came down from the mountain Jesus gave them this order, ‘Tell no one about this vision until the Son of man has risen from the dead.’

               5.   Messenger:  I heard the Father speak:
                                            "This is My beloved Son in whom
                                                I am well pleased —
                                                listen to Him."

               9.  Messenger:  On December 5, 1996 Jesus appeared
                                            to me at the point of death.

Excerpt from Rosary on December 5, 1996:

Jesus speaks: I am alive, I am alive. I am alive. My beloved ones, I show you My face. Do you see the body of a man? Do you see Me alive on the cross? I am speaking to you but the world does not hear. They do not hear the message that I deliver to them. You must pray fervently. You must come to Me that I can be one in you and that I can operate through you as you go into the world this day. I love you. I love you with the most tender love. I am Jesus. I am alive. You are My main soldiers that I will send into the world to lead the strayed ones to My Heart.

The days ahead will be dark days. You must come to My Heart and take shelter in My Heart. It is there that you will be rooted on a firm rock. For My Heart is your home. You will not know the terrors of the night if you stay rooted in My Heart.

Division is blackness in the heart. You must not be divided, divided from anyone. You must remain in union with all men. You must see yourselves as part of the Father's family. Each one of you is so important to the Father's plan.

Jesus on the cross at Immaculata Church

        end of excerpt from rosary of December 5, 1996


             10.  Messenger:  Jesus is the light of the World.

1 John 1: 5

This is what we have heard from him 
and are declaring to you: 
God is light, 
    and there is no darkness in him at all.







               Last Supper

                  1.  From Priestly Newsletter Book II, p. 248-250

    At the Last Supper, on the night He was betrayed, our Saviour instituted the Eucharistic Sacrifice of His Body and Blood. He did this in order to perpetuate the sacrifice of the Cross throughout the centuries until He should come again, and so to entrust to His beloved spouse, the Church, a memorial of His death and resurrection: a sacrament of love, a sign of unity, a bond of charity, a paschal banquet in which Christ is consumed, the mind is filled with grace, and a pledge of future glory is given to us (Vatican II, Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy, No. 17)9

9.  The Documents of Vatican II, "Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy", America Press Edition, No. 17.

                  2.  From Priestly Newsletter Book II, p. 248-250

The Church, therefore, earnestly desires that Christ’s faithful, when present at this mystery of faith, should not be there as strangers or silent spectators. On the contrary, through a proper appreciation of the rites and prayers they should participate knowingly, devoutly, and actively. They should be instructed by God’s word and be refreshed at the table of the Lord’s body; they should give thanks to God; by offering the Immaculate Victim, not only through the hands of the priest, but also with him, they should learn to offer themselves too. Through Christ the Mediator, they should be drawn day by day into ever closer union with God and with each other, so that finally God may be all in all. (Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy, No. 48)10

10.  The Documents of Vatican II, "Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy", America Press Edition, No. 48.

               3.  From Priestly Newsletter Book II, p. 248-250

Through the Eucharistic Sacrifice Christ the Lord desired to set before us in a very special way this remarkable union whereby we are united one with another and with our divine Head, a union that no word of praise can ever sufficiently express. For in this sacrifice the sacred ministers act not only as the representative of our Saviour, but as the representative of the whole Mystical Body and of each one of the faithful. Again, in this act of sacrifice, the faithful of Christ, united by the common bond of devotion and prayer, offer to the eternal Father through the hands of the priest, whose prayer alone has made it present on the altar, the Immaculate Lamb, the most acceptable victim of praise and propitiation for the Church’s universal need. Moreover, just as the divine Redeemer, while dying on the Cross, offered Himself to the eternal Father as Head of the whole human race, so now, ‘in this clean oblation’ He not only offers Himself as Head of the Church to His heavenly Father but in Himself His mystical members as well. He embraces them all, yes, even the weaker and more ailing members with the deepest love of His Heart. (Pope Pius XII, Mystici Corporis AAS. XXXV, 232-233)11

11. Pope Pius XII, Encyclical Letter, Mystici Corporis, AAS, XXXV, pp. 232-233.

               4.  From Priestly Newsletter Book II, p. 248-250

Pope Paul VI instructs us in his encyclical, The Mystery of Faith: "The Catholic Church has always devoutly guarded as a most precious treasure the mystery of faith, that is, the ineffable gift of the Eucharist which she received from Christ her Spouse as a pledge of His immense love, and during the Second Vatican Council in a new and solemn demonstration she professed her faith and veneration for this mystery. When dealing with the restoration of the sacred liturgy, the Fathers of the council, by reason of their pastoral concern for the whole Church, considered it of the highest importance to exhort the faithful to participate actively with sound faith and with the utmost devotion in the celebration of this Most Holy Mystery, to offer it with the priest to God as a sacrifice for their own salvation and for that of the whole world, and to find in it spiritual nourishment.

                  5.  From Priestly Newsletter Book II, p. 248-250

    For if the sacred liturgy holds the first place in the life of the Church, the Eucharistic Mystery stands at the heart and center of the liturgy, since it is the font of life by which we are cleansed and strengthened to live not for ourselves but for God, and to be united in love among ourselves...

                  6.  From Priestly Newsletter Book II, p. 248-250

    "It is to be desired that the faithful, every day and in great numbers, actively participate in the Sacrifice of the Mass, receive Holy Communion with a pure heart, and give thanks to Christ Our Lord for so great a gift...

               7.  From Priestly Newsletter Book II, p. 248-250

    "In the course of the day the faithful should not omit to visit the Blessed Sacrament, which according to the liturgical laws must be kept in the churches with great reverence in a most honorable location. Such visits are a proof of gratitude, an expression of love, an acknowledgment of the Lord’s presence.

               8.  From Priestly Newsletter Book II, p. 248-250

    "No one can fail to understand that the Divine Eucharist bestows upon the Christian people an incomparable dignity. Not only while the sacrifice is offered and the sacrament is received, but as long as the Eucharist is kept in our churches and oratories, Christ is truly the Emmanuel, that is ‘God with us’. Day and night He is in our midst, He dwells with us, full of grace and truth. He restores morality, nourishes virtues, consoles the afflicted, strengthens the weak. He proposes His own example to those who come to Him that all may learn to be, like Himself, meek and humble of heart and to seek not their own interests but those of God.

               9.  From Priestly Newsletter Book II, p. 248-250

    "Anyone who approaches this august Sacrament with special devotion and endeavors to return generous love for Christ’s own infinite love, will experience and fully understand--not without spiritual joy and fruit--how precious is the life hidden with Christ in God... for there is nothing more consoling on earth, nothing more efficacious for advancing along the road of holiness.

             10.  From Priestly Newsletter Book II, p. 248-250

    "Further, you realize, venerable brothers, that the Eucharist is reserved in the churches and oratories as in the spiritual center of a religious community or of a parish, yes, of the universal Church and of all humanity, since beneath the appearance of the species, Christ is contained, the invisible Head of the Church, the Redeemer of the World, the Center of all hearts...

    "From this it follows that the worship paid to the Divine Eucharist strongly impels the soul to cultivate a ‘social’ love... Let us consider as our own the interests of the community, of the parish, of the entire Church, extending our charity to the whole world, because we know that everywhere there are members of Christ".12

                                        bridal union

    A Prayer for Intimacy with the Lamb
the Bridegroom of the soul

    Oh Lamb of God, Who take away the sins of the world, come and act on my soul most intimately. I surrender myself, as I ask for the grace to let go, to just be as I exist in You and You act most intimately on my soul. You are the Initiator. I am the soul waiting Your favors as You act in me. I love You. I adore You. I worship You. Come and possess my soul with Your Divine Grace, as I experience You most intimately.
