May 6, 2005

Messenger:       In tears I write to you of the glory
                            of the Mass because He beacons
                            me to write for I would sooner
                            close my eyes and be so deeply
                            wrapped in this ecstatic union
                            with Him.

                        As we read the Priestly Newsletter on
                            Mary and the Eucharist and the writings
                            of our beloved Pope John Paul II
                            my heart pants for this gift of
                            the Eucharist and I know so
                            deeply the union between Jesus
                            and Mary as never before.

                        The writings of Pope John Paul II on
                            the Eucharist and Mary and Father
                            Bonacci's selections of other writings
                            could only have been deeply inspired
                            by Jesus who writes His Newsletter
                            through him.

                        In all the years of the Newsletter and
                            the readiness of the priests in the Church to
                            receive this one, it is the time
                            with John Paul II's death and all
                            our prayers for the Newsletter for
                            11 years that this Newsletter will
                            be released and with the grace given
                            by God that the hearts of the priest
                            will burn as mine and thirst after
                            the great gift of Jesus in the Eucharist
                            and realize more deeply Mary's connection
                            with Jesus and be deeply connected
                            more to Jesus as we grow in intimacy
                            with Jesus truly present in the
                            Eucharist uniting to Him ever
                            deeper through the Heart of Mary and
                            seeing Him through such a beautiful
                            vision of truth through the eyes
                            of Mary.

                            This is the purpose of the Shepherds of Christ
                        to put out the Priestly Newsletter
                        and this Newsletter on Mary and
                        the Eucharist and the next Newsletter
                        on the Church and Mary are the summit
                        of the Newsletters reaching a point
                        of readiness in the priests to be
                        more as I am today wrapped in
                        this ecstasy of being given such
                        a gift of the Eucharist and Mary.

                            Being united more deeply to God
                        is why we were created. Being
                        united to God and to one another is
                        the desire of God for us. The
                        Eucharist is the gift God
                        gives us in which we are so
                        deeply united in Him.

                            Oh I long for heaven to be
                        in this rapture of a heavenly
                        embrace, to have the fullness
                        of life.

                            The Eucharist is such a gift
                        that God gives to us, a little
                        sharing of the long awaited
                        joy of heaven.

                            A baby's tiny toes and hands and
                        beautiful face reach a depth we
                        cannot express when our deep
                        knowledge and love of the Eucharist
                        is our life.

                            An elderly father, mother,
                        friend is a time of great joy and
                        sorrow as we watch a holy soul
                        embark on the next place they
                        go to the home the Father has

                            Think of the joy and pain of Mary as
                        she stood beneath the cross
                        of her Son.

                            I ponder her heart and great
                        insight has been given to me
                        to know her heart.

                            I write of the reality of the
                        gifts God has for us. God is other
                        and transcendent ...


Excerpt from Response to God's Love, 
by Father Edward Carter, S.J.


The Mystery of Christ and
            Christian Existence

   ...In reference to Christianity, God himself is the ultimate mystery. Radically, God is completely other and transcendent, hidden from man in his inner life, unless he chooses to reveal himself. Let us briefly look at this inner life of God.

    The Father, in a perfect act of self-expression, in a perfect act of knowing, generates his son. The Son, the Word, is, then, the immanent expression of God's fullness, the reflection of the Father. Likewise, from all eternity, the Father and the Son bring forth the Holy Spirit in a perfect act of loving.

    At the destined moment in human history, God's self-expression, the Word, immersed himself into man's world. God's inner self-expression now had also become God's outer self-expression. Consequently, the mystery of God becomes the mystery of Christ. In Christ, God tells us about himself, about his inner life, about his plan of creation and redemption. He tells us how Father, Son, and Holy Spirit desire to dwell within us in the most intimate fashion, how they wish to share with us their own life through grace. All this he has accomplished and does accomplish through Christ. St. Paul tells us: "I became a minister of this Church through the commission God gave me to preach among you his word in its fullness, that mystery hidden from ages and generations past but now revealed to his holy ones. God has willed to make known to them the glory beyond price which this mystery brings to the Gentiles—the mystery of Christ in you, your hope of glory. This is the Christ we proclaim while we admonish all men and teach them in the full measure of wisdom, hoping to make every man complete in Christ" (Col 1:25-28).

Messenger:       but it is beyond my pen and paper to
                            write what I know and experience
                            of Jesus truly present in the
                            Eucharist —

                        words are empty and fail horribly to
                        express any of this —

                        nor do any words even exist to explain
                            even minutely the glories of
                            heaven —

                        The knowledge I know is etched
                            in the layers of my soul —
                            and my soul has no layers and
                            to express in any words is
                            to try to put an apple in
                            a small necked bottle.

                        Eve ate the apple and it is in reaching
                            for the knowledge of the unseen
                            truth of heaven that words
                            do not dare to exist to describe
                            any of it —

                        In that moment of the Mass, He filled
                            my soul with His grace — He
                            united my spirit so deeply to
                            His and I knew so deeply the
                            gift of the Eucharist in my

                            I sobbed because of this knowledge,
                            being here in my body and reaching
                            so deeply into union with God
                            and the Church, the human race —
                            being overtaken with the joy within
                            me to know Him — my Master,
                            my All —

                            Now I write only as he directs me
                            for you for I wanted to linger
                            there and never move and be taken
                            ever deeper into the mystery and
                            stay, as if suspended in time,
                            feeling time stand still and
                            in it I existed so deeply in Him,
                            Father, Son, Holy Spirit, knowing
                            Mary, the angels and saints,
                            heaven and being united with
                            all the souls of the earth and
                            I prayed as I ask you to pray for
                            grace to be released for the
                            Priests reading the Newsletter on
                            Mary and the Eucharist for their
                            love of Jesus truly present in
                            the Eucharist to burn in
                            their hearts and the love of Mary,
                            so one with Jesus to grow as
                            Mother of Jesus, Mother of us
                            all —

                            Mystery — oh mystery —
                            My soul is so filled with His knowledge
                            imparted to me and His grace and the
                            reality of the gift given to us
                            in the priest and the Eucharist
                            burns in my heart and soul.

                        Oh yes I can try to write a sonnet, but
                            it is ineffable and it is because
                            of His desire I write to you,
                            I am writing at all —

                        My prayer being for the souls and this
                            realization of the gift of
                            the Eucharist — that men's
                            eyes will see — their scales
                            on their eyes lifted — their
                        hearts filled with longing for the
                        Eucharist — Jesus, Our God —
                        truly present in the Mass —

                            Oh why with such a gift
                        given to us by God in His
                        Movement, Shepherds of Christ, would the
                        world not help us circulate such
                        a gift to every priest on the
                        face of the earth.

                            His Heart burns for love —
                        His eyes filled with fire —
                        the fire of the love of the Divine
                        God who gives Himself to us —
                        Jesus who mounted the
                        cross and died, shed His
                        Blood for our sins, Our
                        Savior, Our lover, Our
                        Spouse, Our all —

                        Oh sweet Jesus, God of us all,
                            let this message penetrate
                            our hearts to know you and
                            to run to the Eucharist to be
                            fed by Your Body and Blood —
                            to spend our lives praying and offering
                            our lives for the priests, the Church
                            and the world.

                            Oh I long to ponder the mystery
                        through the heart of Mary my
                        mother and see through her eyes —
                        so if you see Mary here
