Acts 6: 8-15 

Stephen was filled with grace and power and began to work miracles and great signs among the people. Then certain people came forward to debate with Stephen, some from Cyrene and Alexandria who were members of the synagogue called the Synagogue of Freedmen, and others from Cilicia and Asia. They found they could not stand up against him because of his wisdom, and the Spirit that prompted what he said. So they procured some men to say, 'We heard him using blasphemous language against Moses and against God.' Having turned the people against him as well as the elders and scribes, they took Stephen by surprise, and arrested him and brought him before the Sanhedrin. There they put up false witnesses to say, 'This man is always making speeches against this Holy Place and the Law. We have heard him say that Jesus, this Nazarene, is going to destroy this Place and alter the traditions that Moses handed down to us.' The members of the Sanhedrin all looked intently at Stephen, and his face appeared to them like the face of an angel.

 

Psalm 119: 23-24, 26-27, 29-30

Though princes sit plotting against me,
your servant keeps pondering your will.
Your instructions are my delight,
your wishes my counsellors.

I tell you my ways and you answer me;
teach me your wishes.
Show me the way of your precepts,
that I may reflect on your wonders.

Keep me far from the way of deceit,
grant me the grace of your Law.
I have chosen the way of constancy,
I have moulded myself to your judgements.

   

John 6: 22-29

Next day, the crowd that had stayed on the other side saw that only one boat had been there, and that Jesus had not got into the boat with his disciples, but that the disciples had set off by themselves. Other boats, however, had put in from Tiberias, near the place where the bread had been eaten. When the people saw that neither Jesus nor his disciples were there, they got into those boats and crossed to Capernaum to look for Jesus. When they found him on the other side, they said to him, 'Rabbi, when did you come here?' Jesus answered:

In all truth I tell you,
you are looking for me
not because you have seen the signs
but because you had all the bread
   you wanted to eat.
Do not work for food that goes bad,
but work for food
   that endures for eternal life,
which the Son of man will give you,
for on him the Father, God himself,
   has set his seal.

    Then they said to him, 'What must we do if we are to carry out God's work?' Jesus gave them this answer, 'This is carrying out God's work: you must believe in the one he has sent.'

 

                      Jesus fed all these
                people —

                    Jesus wanted them to see
                more than filling their stomachs —

                    Jesus heals our sins in
                confession and we don't even
                see what a gift that is —

                    We can become evil in
                our ways — People can become
                addicted and then their addiction
                they let rule their lives 

 

From The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius
    by Louis J. Puhl, S.J.
 p.11

21.                     SPIRITUAL EXERCISES

    Which have as their purpose the conquest of self
    and the regulation of one's life in such a way that
    no decision is made under the influence of any
    inordinate attachment

     

                Letting go of inordinate attachments —

                Addictions to food
                Addictions to control
                Addictions to manipulation —

                The more one gets into bad habits —
                    the bad habits can develop more
                    and they become more evil

                Faith can over come
                    sinful obstacles

                I unite to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass going
                    on around the world at this moment and
                    all day —

                I want to be as You want me to be, My God,
                    I love You so much, I love You, I love You.
                    Thank You for the priest and for the Eucharist —
                    I unite to the sacrifice of Calvary,
                        sacramentally made present through
                        the hands of Your beloved priests —
                    I beg for grace now for myself, for the
                        Shepherds of Christ people, for all the
                        priests, the Church and the world —

                    Oh God, please outpour Your grace for all
                        my intentions — Oh God I am sorry
                        for my sins and the sins of the human race

                    Oh God I beg for mercy and forgiveness —
                    Oh God I love You so very much —

                    Oh God I thank You for Your blessings
                        upon me — upon the world — upon
                        my family, upon the Shepherds of Christ

                    Oh God I want to make reparation for the
                        sins of the human race

                    Oh Father I pray to You, united to the sacrifice
                        of Jesus in the Mass, in the Holy Spirit, through
                        the intercession of Mary my Mother,
                        with all the angels and saints and the souls
                        in purgatory —

                    Oh God I pray so deeply, Oh God I trust in
                        You — Oh God I have faith in Your
                        hearing my prayer and helping me —

                    Oh God I pray for my personal intentions —
                        Oh God — hear me and help me — my beloved —
                        my sweet and adoring God — Thank You for
                        Your gifts to me

                    Oh God — thank You
                    Oh God — I love You

                    Oh God - I am sorry for my sins
                    Oh God I am sorry for the sins of the
                        Shepherds of Christ, the members of the
                        Church, the human race —

                    One little light in the darkness —
                    Oh God — I know Your light in me —

                    Oh God — Peace — I want peace, not conflict,
                        punishment, anger — resentment —
                        bitterness

                    Oh God make my heart pure —
                    I love You God with all my heart —
                    Heal my sinful soul, oh God —
                    Make me always obedient to You —

                    Help me God, so I am never separated
                        from You

                    Oh God, I love You so much —

   

                    From November 13, 1996 Rosary

The Scourging at the Pillar

  1. 1. He has called us, His special apostles, to hear this message. Each and every person in this room has been called by Jesus. Do not focus on me. Open your heart and listen to the message that He wishes to deliver to you. The Almighty God is calling us to help in the renewal of the Church and the world. As we meditate on these Sorrowful Mysteries of the rosary, as we see how Jesus suffered to His brutal death on the cross, why do we not think that He would send messages this day to help in the renewal of His beloved Church to help to lead souls to His most Sacred Heart? There is sickness in the world and in the Church. He is delivering these messages to draw all to the mighty medicine which is His burning love. We are hungry. We are starving. We want to be fed. We will only be fed with the love of God. He is delivering these messages of His love. We are His apostles that He is sending out to the world to carry this message of His love, to light up the darkness. Can we say "no" to Jesus? Open your heart and listen to the message. Do not focus on me. Focus on the message He wishes to deliver to you and meditate on His suffering, how He gave Himself to His death on the cross.

 

                Jesus: There are so many books of
                    untruthful material leading
                    men off and I have given Shepherds
                    of Christ My personal letters of love
                    to feed their hungry souls —

                Why do you not see all the printed
                    untruthful rubbish bombarding
                    My people and you I have called
                    to spread My books spread
                    a couple of books — from
                    My Heart —

                Why do you call yourself
                    Apostles of the Shepherds of Christ
                    Movement?

                R. Jesus wants us to love the
                    Eucharist —
                    to spend hours thinking
                        about God —
                    Being with God —

                A burning love for Jesus
                    love for the blessed sacrament —

                Jesus: What are you doing to do as
                    I asked?
 

  

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.

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)
