Acts 4: 32-37

The whole group of believers was united, heart and soul; no one claimed private ownership of any possessions, as everything they owned was held in common. The apostles continued to testify to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus with great power, and they were all accorded great respect. None of their members was ever in want, as all those who owned land or houses would sell them, and bring the money from the sale of them, to present it to the apostles; it was then distributed to any who might be in need.

There was a Levite of Cypriot origin called Joseph whom the apostles surnamed Barnabas (which means 'son of encouragement'). He owned a piece of land and he sold it and brought the money and presented it to the apostles.

 

John 3: 7-15

Do not be surprised when I say: 
    You must be born from above. 
    The wind blows where it pleases; 
    you can hear its sound, 
    but you cannot tell where it comes from 
        or where it is going. 
    So it is with everyone 
        who is born of the Spirit. 

‘How is that possible?’ asked Nicodemus. Jesus replied, ‘You are the Teacher of Israel, and you do not know these things! 

    ‘In all truth I tell you, 
    we speak only about what we know 
    and witness only to what we have seen 
    and yet you people reject our evidence. 
    If you do not believe me 
    when I speak to you about earthly things, 
    how will you believe me 
    when I speak to you about heavenly things? 
    No one has gone up to heaven 
    except the one 
        who came down from heaven, 
    the Son of man; 
    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. 
 

 

                    In the Church we are one body in Christ. God wants
                us to live united as members of the Body
                of Christ. We are fed on His Body. He is
                the head. He gives us His Body and Blood
                to eat.

                    The Church is one, holy, Catholic and
                Apostolic.

                    Holiness comes from living consecrated
                more and more to the Sacred Heart and the
                Immaculate Heart. Mary is full of grace.
                Mary is sinless. Mary is all pure.
                Mary is so united to God. Jesus did not
                come in sin — He came in the womb
                of Mary the sinless one.

                    Now God loves His body so much He
                nourishes His body with Himself. He
                feeds us on His own flesh and Blood. We
                become holy — more one — the more we
                go to the Eucharist.

                    Children come from the mother, they
                come from the mother's body, she loves them so
                very much. She is one with her
                family, children, grandchildren etc.

                    Mary is the spiritual mother. Mary
                is full of grace. Mary is filled with
                His life in her. Mary knows what it
                is to live IN HIM to live IN
                GOD.

                    A child knows their parents, they
                are taught by them. When they disobey,
                the parent may try to get the child to
                obey.

                    Mary is our spiritual Mother — Mary
                appeared at Fatima to tell the children
                of hers how to have greater life in
                God.

                    Now God wants us one. Like a family.
                The collection can be passed at Church —
                people hardly talk to each other, but
                we in the Catholic faith who have
                been baptized are to live as one in
                holiness.

                    Consecration is a deeper life of our
                baptismal vows. In being one body
                in the Catholic Church — God wants
                unity.

                    He gives us His Body and Blood to eat in
                the Holy Eucharist. We are saturated more
                and more with His life through the
                sacraments. We eat at the same table,
                we feast on the body and Blood of Christ
                whether in Rome or in Cincinnati —
                we eat His Body, we drink His Blood —
                We are filled with His life. We suck
                at the fountain of life. The rivers
                flow and grace flows out to the
                members of the body of Christ.

                    Christ came in the womb of Mary —
                Christ took on a human nature —
                He took on a human body — He came from
                the womb — the sinless virgin - Mary.
                God came to the human race to save
                us from our sins.

                    One body in Him.

                    What does that mean to be a body?

                    To me it means laying down my life
                at every moment like Christ did —
                laying down my life united to the
                sacrifice of Calvary — sacramentally
                made present — at every moment — I
                live more deeply my life united to
                the Mass — every moment is a sacrifice, —
                an offering, in doing God's will for
                me in love —

                I am not disconnected from God — I
                live deeply one united to the Masses
                going on around the world.

                    This is unity for the members of
                the body of Christ.

                    In the Shepherds of Christ — God has called
                us to be united in the Hearts of Jesus and
                Mary and spread the Consecration, devotion
                to Their Hearts.

                    My life is not lived disconnected
                from the others. Our lives are very
                interlocked in praying for the priests,
                the Church and the world and spreading
                the Priestly Newsletter.

                    God wants us dependent on each other
                to do this. He calls people to pray and
                support these efforts. We are not
                disconnected — we do this together —
                we depend on each other to do it. —
                I cannot do any of this without all
                the other people —

                    God has taught us to forgive and love
                and grow as a family in our spiritual
                life. The Spirit is alive in our hearts.
                Associates to Servants and Handmaids are
                vital — We have learned to love the
                souls, love our priests, love the Church
                we sacrifice, we live our lives, we
                are driven to help renew the Church
                and the world — we can't do it without
                each other. I can't cut off my toe —
                I am a finger, the liver needs to be
                working with the toe and finger —

                    The Blood is pumped from the
                heart to all of the body —

                    God gives us all a deep sharing
                in His life. We are one united in
                the Hearts of Jesus and Mary —

                    We are all praying for our priests,
                and the Church and the whole human
                race — we pray through the intercession
                of the saints in heaven and the souls in
                purgatory —

                    We pray united - as one — as members
                of the body of Christ — we are in this —
                I am deeply dwelling in the pure Hearts
                of love — the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

                    Religious orders have dwindled — it
                is more necessary than ever now
                people are united, praying deeply for
                the Church and the world —

                    You say — oh the money

                    Jesus wants us one praying for
                the Church and the world —

                    We reach out to our donors and the
                prayer chapters are to pray and support
                this mission —
                    Consecrated to the Hearts of
                Jesus and Mary —

                    We pray — united to the Masses —
                one in Their Hearts —

                    What is renewal is to move
                to a more pure place — a better
                way of living more deeply IN HIM —

                    We are to be united as a body —
                If I am one in the Hearts of Jesus
                and Mary and you are one in the
                Hearts of Jesus and Mary we are
                more deeply united as one in the
                Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

                    We offer a more pure and holy
                sacrifice united in Their pure
                and holy Hearts —

                    One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic --
                I am spreading this mission —
                I am laying down my life united
                to the Mass in the Morning
                Offering —

                    When God flooded the earth
                at the time of Noah —
                    there was renewal for the poor
                banished children of Adam and Eve.

                    Today God takes us into the
                Age of the Two Hearts — the
                Pure and Holy Hearts of the New
                Adam and the New Eve —

                    We have been given the opportunity
                to sell our property to help us pay
                for the Newsletter, but we are dependent
                upon all God has called for help
                to send the Newsletter all over
                the world.

                    This is a vocation for associates
                as well as servants and handmaids to pray
                to support the Newsletter,
                prayer chapters, rosary program.

                    God has called us to help unite
                the world by sending the Blue Books,
                Mass Book talking about the Eucharist
                and all the writings talking about
                Baptism and living out that baptismal
                vow as members consecrated to the
                pure and holy Hearts of Jesus and
                Mary.

                    This Shepherds of Christ is not a
                business, it is a family, a labor
                of love — encouraging our priests
                through the Priestly Newsletter,
                praying for the priests, the Church and
                the world,

                    Loving the souls, the human race,
                Jesus died for —

                    Look at the Song's Jesus gave me

    

 

                Jesus picked Fr. Carter and as I write I
                    still want to cry — he has been dead
                    for 7 years — I would not have had him
                    die, God's plan is this Movement to
                    help renew the Church and the world
                    culminating in the Reign of the
                    Sacred Heart and triumph of Mary's
                    Immaculate Heart.

                    It is a family of love. God wants
                the human family to be united obeying
                God the Father — loving Mary as
                our spiritual Mother —

                    Living with Christ's life alive
                in us as baptized members of the
                body of Christ, the Catholic Church —
                to be more and more holy as we Feast on
                the Body and Blood of Jesus.

                    God told Abraham to take Isaac
                to the altar — you say why — I
                say why not — God tested Abraham
                with his son so precious to him —
                then God spared his son and made
                Abraham's descendents as numerous
                as the stars of the sky.

                    God created us to love. God is
                love. There are 3 Persons in the
                Trinity — one God — We are to
                be more perfected as our heavenly
                Father is perfect and die to our
                imperfections more and more —

                    In the Shepherds of Christ we
                are a family — we don't throw
                each other out the window because
                we become greedy — wanting things
                for ourselves —

                    We love God and want to honor and serve Him
                    We love the souls Jesus died for
                    We love the priests
                    We love the Church

                We are all part of this praying
                    for the priests, the Church and
                    the world.

                    We depend on the donors — they
                are why this works — God asked us
                to sell this mission —
                    to have the Fatima statues —
                    to draw people praying as a
                    body united on the internet
                    daily at the same time

                to pray and come and support His
                    centers

                    China — where the Eucharist
                        is exposed
                        where the Newsletter is
                            mailed from
                        where we pray 24 hours a
                        day for the priests, the Church
                        and the world.

                The Shepherds of Christ is a vocation.
                The Shepherds of Christ is a family.
                We are united in love.
                We laugh —
                We cry

                We want the world to be one
                    united in the Hearts of Jesus
                    and Mary

                We are dependent on each other as
                    a family —

                We aren't Mother Angelica —

                Jesus told me and Fr. Carter what He
                    wanted —

                We aren't married singles — we are
                    deeply united in the Hearts of
                    Jesus and Mary - living more
                    holy lives

                We say we are wrong when we are wrong and
                    we are sorry to each other
                    WE LOVE each other —
                    We all want this mission —
                    God has called us in our
                        hearts —

                Through faith we have come to where
                    we are today

                We offer hope to the troubled world and
                We love deeply.

                    We suffer together to make this
                work and

                    We lay down our lives in
                love — growing in greater
                holiness.

                God has taught us how to
                    pray for 15 years to
                    be deep intercessors for
                    the priests, the Church and
                    the world.

                This is in our writings —
                The joy and love attracts the
                    people called.

                It is a way of life.

                The reason we are united in love is
                    because God has called us to suffer in love
                    for our family under Him. We have
                    died to our weaknesses and still live
                    to be more perfected in Him.

                We are being tuned for paradise.

 

 

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.

SHEPHERDS OF CHRIST AND FATIMA

In the Shepherds of Christ, we are a family, joined in one heart in Mary and Jesus' Heart because of our consecration to Their Hearts. We are acting as His Heart beating in this world. We are the modern day apostles joined in one heart.

As we give our hearts to Mary, the Holy Spirit gives us lights to know God and we go forth into the world as lights because we love God so much. We cannot know God and not love Him. So our hearts are filled with the burning love of God.

We Are One in Jesus' Heart

 

The core leaders contact the coordinators. The coordinators contact the individual apostles. All apostles are working for Jesus. They try to spend one hour a day either in front of the tabernacle or at home alone with Jesus. In this hour, Jesus directs them on their life. They share intimate love with Jesus. He teaches them about Himself and the Father's will for them. It is so important to spend an hour of intimacy everyday with Jesus.

We live by Mary's Peace Plan given at Fatima. It is as follows:

  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 a 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

Pictorial representation of of Present Condition of the World

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.

The Scale Must Shift

Pictorial representation of shift in Present Condition of the World

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

Tree showing much darkness in the world

The Father looks to the earth. There are so many hearts that are not on fire for love of God. The hearts of burning love light up the earth. It is as lights on a Christmas tree. It is sparsely lighted. Therefore, the tree looks dark.

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 filled with burning love for Jesus and the earth becomes more lighted.

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

Tree showing hearts consecrated to Jesus and Mary

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 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 a spirit of reparation.
  4. We must make reparation to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

Mary said there will be an era of peace, in which the Sacred Heart of Jesus will reign and the Immaculate Heart of Mary will triumph.

God gave us Mary as our Mother. We are disobeying our Mother's requests given at Fatima. Do you think the Father is pleased with willful children disobeying their mother?

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

Jesus writes His message of love on our hearts. His life lives in our hearts. The Scriptures and the Mass live in our hearts.

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

THE EARTH STOPPED AND TOUCHED HEAVEN

I long to unite in the deepest union with Him in the Eucharist. I long for the Mass. I long for Thee, oh God. My every moment, I join as I did to You December 15 under the cross, where I felt Your presence. You whisked me away, and I was totally absorbed in that moment of celestial union with You. For that time, I existed only in You, in the deepest union, and I was in this moment existing in You. The earth stopped, and I touched the heavens, all my bodily cares were existent in You. I existed in Your Divinity, my being was in You. There was no desire or wish or wanting, for in that moment, I had all I wanted in You. I was satisfied and wanted nothing but to remain in that embrace. You were the Being, and my being existed in You, but I was only as I was in You - merged in You, knowing and being in Your Divinity and being so full as to feel complete in myself.

You are so enormous, and You surrounded me in a burning embrace, the presence of red fire. I was not little, or "nothing", but existed in this enormous power and being so complete!

I touched eternity, and in that embrace, I knew all the waiting was worth the glory. You enveloped my being, and I was truly merged in the Divine Presence. I was merged in Your being. I existed IN You, with You, in the highest union with You, although I knew I was still distinct from You.

I was fused and absorbed in You, feeling complete and satisfied. To describe this union is far beyond any work of my pen and paper. I pray for the reader of this page to receive the grace to share this experience with Him, I will now live for this union-to be forever merged In Him, to be One in Him, to reach higher perfection as I exist in Him, for He takes the lowly and gives to them a sharing in Himself. He merges with us and we exist in Him. The word "in" - I could write pages about. I long for the deepest union with Him, where I am swept up in the heavenly embrace of the Divine God, and I am IN Him.

This is heaven on earth: to be merged as one with Divinity, although remaining distinct from God, to take our feeble hearts, our lowly status and to unite ourselves with the Divine, Almighty, powerful God and in this union to be meshed with Him, that His power dominates and our humanity reaches its heights of fulfillment in this union, in this oneness with Him.

The word I have looked for is "oneness." I understand some of the meaning of the words "One in Him." Oneness is the word to describe this union of our humanity with His Divinity. The depth to which we could meditate on oneness with God is incomprehensible. In that moment, the earth stood still, and He, my Divine Lover, the Bridegroom of my soul, took me to Himself, and I knew the embrace of the Divine God.

Nothing on the face of this earth can describe our union with Divinity. Oh, good God, that creatures are so ungrateful regarding Your divine love. I am so sorry. Let me help make reparation to Your adorable Heart. Please unite with me now that I may more deeply love Thee.

Oh, Divine Lover of my soul, let me help make reparation to Your adorable Heart for the neglect and indifference against You.

Song from Jesus: I come to you with greatest love. I am your loving Savior. I am your God. I died for you. I come to you this day.

He allowed me to experience such pain in my heart - wanting Him so badly, so many times-and then on Dec. 15, 1995 - He gave Himself to me in the deepest union.

Nothing satisfies the soul but Him. He wants the nuns and priests to love Him. He chose them to spread His love.

Souls are hungry. They will only be fed with His burning love. Priests need to talk about Jesus' love for us from the pulpit. Priests need hearts burning for love of Jesus. This will feed the hungry souls - lip service love doesn't do it.

He is alive today. He is a Person. He wants us to love Him.
