                Being one with the Holy Spirit.

                Meditating on the oneness between Mary
                    and the Holy Spirit.

                Praying to know the Holy Spirit more
                    like Mary.

                Think of the Power of the Holy Spirit.
                Coming on Mary at the Incarnation
                The Power of the Holy Spirit coming
                    on the bread and wine at Mass and
                    they are changed into the Body and Blood
                    of Jesus.

                Holy Spirit come upon me —
                    permeate my being
                    change me
                    Help me to be more perfected, likened
                        to Christ.

                We were created in the image and likeness
                    of God.

                The Holy Spirit works in the Immaculate
                    Heart of Mary — the spiritual
                    womb of Mary to
                    make us more and more in the image
                    and likeness of Jesus.

                Spiritual Motherhood

                The Holy Spirit working with Mary our
                    spiritual mother to make us
                    more like Jesus.

   

Excerpt from Tell My People

The Holy Spirit

Jesus: "My beloved friend, tell My people to pray daily to the Holy Spirit. They are to pray for an increase in His gifts. My people must realize that the Holy Spirit comes to transform them. The Spirit desires to transform you more and more according to My image. Those who are docile to His touch become increasingly shaped in My likeness. He performs this marvel within Mary's Immaculate Heart. The more one dwells in My Mother's Heart, the more active are the workings of the Spirit. The Spirit leads Mary to place you within My own Heart. In both Our Hearts, then, your transformation continues. The more you are formed after My own Heart, the more I lead you to the bosom of My Father. Tell My people all this. Tell them to pray daily for a greater appreciation of these wondrous gifts. I am Lord and Master. All who come to My Heart will be on fire to receive the gifts of the Spirit in ever greater measure! I love and bless My people!"

Reflection: The Holy Spirit is given to us to fashion us ever more according to the likeness of Jesus. And the more we are like Jesus, the more Jesus leads us to the Father. Do we, each day, pray to the Holy Spirit to be more open to His transforming influence? Do we strive each day to grow in union with Mary? The greater our union with our Mother, the spouse of the Holy Spirit, the greater is the transforming action of the Holy Spirit within us.

end of excerpt from Tell My People

   

                We are brought forth children of Light.

                Greater vision

                We talk about love of Jesus and Mary.
                We talk about love of Father and Mary.

                What about love of Mary and Holy Spirit
                    that brought Jesus into the world.

                What about the love of the Holy Spirit at Mass.

                    "Lord you are holy indeed the fountain of all holiness —
                    Let your Spirit come upon these gifts and make them holy"

                    also
                    "and so, Father, we bring you these gifts,
                    and ask you to make them holy by the power of your Spirit
                    that they may become the Body and Blood
                    of your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ,
                    at whose command we celebrate this Eucharist."
                                                                             
Eucharistic Prayer 3

 
           

Romans 5: 5, 8, 11

and a hope which will not let us down, because the love of God has been poured into our hearts by the Holy Spirit which has been given to us.

So it is proof of God’s own love for us, that Christ died for us while we were still sinners.

What is more, we are filled with exultant trust in God, through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have already gained our reconciliation.

 

Psalm 104: 1ab, 24, 27-28, 30-31, 33-34

Bless Yahweh, my soul, 
Yahweh, my God, how great you are! 

How countless are your works, Yahweh, 
all of them made so wisely! 
The earth is full of your creatures.

They all depend upon you,
to feed them when they need it.
You provide the food they gather,
your open hand gives them their fill.

Send out your breath and life begins; 
you renew the face of the earth. 

Glory to Yahweh for ever! 
May Yahweh find joy in his creatures!

I shall sing to Yahweh all my life,
make music for my God as long as I live.
May my musings be pleasing to him, 
for Yahweh gives me joy.

 
 

Luke 1: 45

Yes, blessed is she who believed that the promise made her by the Lord would be fulfilled.’

 

Luke 1: 48-49

  because he has looked upon
        the humiliation of his servant.
    Yes, from now onwards
        all generations will call me blessed,
    for the Almighty
        has done great things for me.
    Holy is his name,

   

Acts 1: 1-11

In my earlier work, Theophilus, I dealt with everything Jesus had done and taught from the beginning until the day he gave his instructions to the apostles he had chosen through the Holy Spirit, and was taken up to heaven. He had shown himself alive to them after his Passion by many demonstrations: for forty days he had continued to appear to them and tell them about the kingdom of God. While at table with them, he had told them not to leave Jerusalem, but to wait there for what the Father had promised. ‘It is’, he had said, ‘what you have heard me speak about: John baptised with water but, not many days from now, you are going to be baptised with the Holy Spirit.’

Now having met together, they asked him, ‘Lord, has the time come for you to restore the kingdom to Israel?’ He replied, ‘It is not for you to know times or dates that the Father has decided by his own authority, but you will receive the power of the Holy Spirit which will come on you, and then you will be my witnesses not only in Jerusalem but throughout Judaea and Samaria, and indeed to earth’s remotest end.’
     As he said this he was lifted up while they looked on, and a cloud took him from their sight. They were still staring into the sky as he went, when suddenly two men in white were standing beside them, and they said, ‘Why are you Galileans standing here looking into the sky? This Jesus who has been taken up from you into heaven will come back in the same way as you have seen him go to heaven.’

 

Romans 8: 8-17

and those who live by their natural inclinations can never be pleasing to God. You, however, live not by your natural inclinations, but by the Spirit, since the Spirit of God has made a home in you. Indeed, anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him. But when Christ is in you, the body is dead because of sin but the spirit is alive because you have been justified; and if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead has made his home in you, then he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will give life to your own mortal bodies through his Spirit living in you. 

    So then, my brothers, we have no obligation to human nature to be dominated by it. If you do live in that way, you are doomed to die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the habits originating in the body, you will have life.

All who are guided by the Spirit of God are sons of God; for what you received was not the spirit of slavery to bring you back into fear; you received the Spirit of adoption, enabling us to cry out, ‘Abba, Father!’ The Spirit himself joins with our spirit to bear witness that we are children of God. And if we are children, then we are heirs, heirs of God and joint–heirs with Christ, provided that we share his suffering, so as to share his glory.

 

                Sing:  Come Holy Spirit

  

   

I know that there is one thing I must do
to live as God wants me to.
Nothing should cause us to despair if we are growing ever more in our relationship with God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. 

Growing ever deeper in the spiritual life is the work of our life
Love is the mystery of life.
We say yes to God's will.
Did not Jesus teach us this when we gaze upon His cross and we see how He said Yes to His Father's will even to His death on the cross. 

The rule we follow is the Father's will, but we must pray
pray to love so deeply His will
pray to want only His will
pray that His will be done on earth as it is in heaven -
in this lies our peace - in struggles, frustrations,
we do not give into the negative thinking
we do not give into the lies of satan
we deeply love His will
we deeply love those we are asked to serve
we do not give into the tainted human nature of doubt, worry - etc.
for we know in Him lies our peace. 

An apple is a beautiful fruit created by God.
Look at an apple a fruit
but in the simplicity of the story of the garden God shows us how choosing a good thing when opposed to God's will can cause the punishment of the whole human race.
All things must be seen in serving God all for His honor and glory. 

Taintedness in the impurities of our intentions causes us to see things incorrectly. 

We want to have the clearer vision of the Father.
The Holy Spirit counsels us on doing the Father's will - on living in the Father's will. 

I do not think as I write this, but write as I am directed.
I listen to God speak to me in my soul.
My constant life being lived to be so one in Him.
I want to be identified with Christ living in these mysteries.
I want to live out His mysteries in my life. 

I hold on like one holding the reigns of a horse and I let go when I need to
I listen, I love, I want to please my King and my Master.
Little things may be obstacles on the way and I bear down more focusing on Him taking His hand staying rooted in the solid dirt
the good ground to bear a hearty harvest even when winds come and rock my plant - even when He calls me to stand on a windy hill
I don't blow off He holds me in my place
I work for the Master. 

Oh song of songs
mystery of life
to love and obey God's will 

to thirst after souls - thirst after the precious souls God gave His life for 

I am done when He is done with me
I am rocked in the arms of the Blessed Mother
I carry the little cross He gives me
I love deeply His precious souls He shed His Blood for
Oh mystery of mystery
Jesus incarnate in the womb of a woman
Mary being the New Eve
Mary perfectly attuned to the will of the Father
Mary loving the Father as the little girl of the Father
wanting to please
Mary the sinless one 

Oh God make us have the wisdom of Mary - Spouse of the Holy Spirit 

Yes we can be very selfish and listen to the devil - the evil spirit
or we can seek more the quiet whispers of the Holy Spirit - so intimately filling our tainted soul. 

Whisper to me - Oh Holy Spirit Your wisdom
Permeate my being with Your grace
counsel me oh Holy Spirit with the wisdom of God.
Oh that I realize more fully my spousal relationship with God
and so you say
oh Rita what does that mean
and I say - it is but words
for my breath is one with Him
my morning kiss is with the love of God so deeply one in my soul
and yet oh God do I not recognize how little I know You and thirst after You 

Now I could write here as I desire, but I write as He writes through me
letting go to the one who leads the dance
He leads and I follow
He knows the steps to lead perfectly
I walk in the steps of my spiritual mother Mary
walking and enjoying the beauty of His creation 

my mind is not mechanical - my mind is painted in the Heart of Christ
my mind is His canvas
my life is His to have
my heart is written in the blue sky
the black sky
the star studded sky
my life is His to use to express His will on this earth. 

Oh wonder of wonders of Our Divine God
No matter what the weather
He controls it
so if He who can control the stars of the sky
the birds of the air
am I not so important to Him that when I surrender my all to Him - who knows everything
and has all the power should I not entrust to Him my hand and let go
I felt a little hand in mine
come on grandma
lets go
come on child lets go 

and I followed the little one enjoying the little hand and I felt the little skin and I loved them and I would take them only in a way that would be for their good 

and the littlest one fell from a big stool and could hardly get their breath and I picked them up in my arms and wanted everything to be okay
so I loved them ever more in their helplessness and took them deeply in my heart and loved them 

God wants us to surrender to Him
God wants us to let go of our wills and follow the Father's

Freedom lies in this
a little one are we to God
He likes us to recognize the truth of our helplessness and depend on His Might 

Look God the Father
Look Mary our Mother
Little children of the Father are we

Matthew 18: 1-5

At this time the disciples came to Jesus and said, ‘Who is the greatest in the kingdom of Heaven?’ So he called a little child to him whom he set among them. Then he said, ‘In truth I tell you, unless you change and become like little children you will never enter the kingdom of Heaven. And so, the one who makes himself as little as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of Heaven.

Matthew 11: 25

At that time Jesus exclaimed, ‘I bless you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, for hiding these things from the learned and the clever and revealing them to little children.

I thirst to be fed at the table of the Lord
to eat His Body and to drink His Blood 

Am I worthy of such a feast - I think not with all my sins
with my mouth it seems so impure
and yet He enters my body 

Now God calls me to this
My soul is one with His
My body is to serve Him
my life lives
every minute so one in His Heart
Yes Jesus shows us His Heart of Love
His hands pointing to the Sacred Heart a blaze on the chest of the Savior 

Oh God I see you as the Divine optometrist and I hear you say
This is the way
and I test the vision until it is as I see more clearly in the Father plan 

there is the way
I must seek it as a little helpless child in the arms of Mary 

Mary my Mama
Mary let me know the Holy Spirit as you know Him
Mary let me love the Father as you love Him
Mary let me know and be so one with God
Father, Son and Holy Spirit. 

Holy Spirit permeate my soul and fill me with Your wisdom
Amen.

July 31, 1994

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)

    


                 

                And the Newsletter came from a
                    message 13 years ago

                    Fr. Carter got a message from
                    Jesus May 31, 1994 to start
                    the Newsletter and send it to all the
                    priests in the United States.

                    In July 1994 — the first Priestly
                Newsletter went out — then Father
                Carter continued it for 6 1/2 years until
                his death December 18, 2000. He sent out
                33 Newsletters while he was alive.

                    The Newsletters to the end of 1999
                are in two volumes

                    Priestly Newsletter Book 1
                    Priestly Newsletter Book 2

                and can be ordered — it has about
                29 Newsletters in these two volumes
                of Fr. Carter's Newsletters.

                    Fr. Pasquini has written many, many
                books.

                    The synopsis of the spiritual life
                is in the great book
                    Light, Happiness and Peace
                        published by Shepherd of Christ just
                        February, 2007 —
                        We have circulated this wonderful
                            book to over 8,000 priests —
                            here are some comments.

                There is a wonderful book of prayers
                    that accommodates this book
                    Authenticity Prayers by Fr. John Pasquini

 

 

 

                Also this disc of prayers is read
                    on the ocean — it is beautiful.

 

 


 

                The Book of Prayers

                    Imitation of Two Hearts is
                a special gift for priests to give
                to people in Nursing Homes
                and in hospitals.

                It is a book for all of us to use
                or anybody that is suffering.

 

                Also Giclee prints of this
                    magnificent art work
                    Fr. Pasquini had done for
                    this book.

                The art work comes in two sizes
                    and looks like the original
                    oil painting.

 

 

 

            The art work for

                    Lucia's vision of June 13, 1929
                    was done by Harold Kellner.
                    These Giclee prints are
                    also available —

                        12 x 16
                        18 x 24

 

 

 

 

 


                Fr. Pasquini has done a beautiful
                    gift of his most wonderful
                    homily given when someone
                    dear has died.

                    It can be given as a tremendous
                gift.

                    The pictures from Annette's
                mom here were very important.
 

 


  

                    Her family was so pleased for
                Fr. Pasquini's words at her
                death.

                Give this as a sympathy present.

 

                   

                    Also a beautiful Mass was done by
                Fr. Pasquini for Nursing homes
                and assisted living. It was done
                at St. Joseph's magnificent chapel —
                St. Joseph's assisted living in
                Jupiter, Florida. It last about
                33 minutes. We call it the golden
                Nursing Home Mass from St. Joseph's.
                St. Joseph's is the most beautiful
                assisted living home in Jupiter,
                Florida.

                    Order one for yourself and
                give as a magnificent gift.
