Messenger:      We have prayed continually this prayer

  

Prayer for the spiritual and financial success 
of the priestly newsletter.

    "Father, we ask Your special blessings upon the priestly newsletter, Shepherds of Christ. We ask that You open the priest-readers to the graces You wish to give them through this chosen instrument of Your Son. We also ask that You provide for the financial needs of the newsletter and the Shepherds of Christ Associates. We make our prayer through Jesus, in the Holy Spirit, with Mary at our side. Amen"

  

June 1, 2004 message continues

Messenger:     The Newsletter is the #1 reason for the Movement and coequally
                              prayer chapters for the priests.
                              He will begin the newsletter immediately funds are needed for this.

                              Here is the original plan to Fr. Carter to finance the Newsletter from the
                                  Spiritual Handbook.

  

Excerpt from the Spirituality Handbook
by Father Carter

Chapter Guidelines for Shepherds of Christ Associates

  1. A primary purpose of the chapters of Shepherds of Christ Associates is to pray for all priests throughout the world in all their needs. A coequal purpose is to provide a spiritual way of life for members of the chapters. The chapters are to pray in a special way for the spiritual success of the priestly newsletter, Shepherds of Christ. Prayer for the acquisition of monetary funds to publish the letter is also in order. The chapters are to meet on a regular basis, with the members of each chapter to determine the exact frequency of meetings. All chapters are encouraged to meet on a weekly basis. If for various other reasons certain chapters cannot meet weekly, they should meet at least once a month.
      
  2. All persons--lay persons, diocesan clergy, and priests, brothers, and sisters in religious life--are invited to become members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. Those who are already committed to a certain way of spiritual life may adapt the spirituality of Shepherds of Christ Associates to their own particular spirituality.
      
  3. In addition to the purpose of the chapters as put forth above, the members of each chapter are encouraged to help raise money to defray some of the newsletter publication costs and some of the financial needs of the Shepherds of Christ Associates movement. One way for chapters to financially aid the newsletter is to pledge to pay for a certain number of newsletters each year. Our Lord has asked that the newsletter be sent to the priests free of charge, although donations may be requested in the newsletter itself.
     
  4. A further purpose of the chapters is to undertake those activities which Jesus, through the Spiritual Director, further reveals to be His will.
     
  5. The formation of as many chapters as is reasonably possible is to be encouraged. Multiple chapters may exist in the same city or area. Each chapter is to have its own local coordinator, and each country its own national coordinator.
     
  6. A periodic newsletter for associates will be published to help establish the desired bond or union between all chapters and all members.
     
  7. Members of Shepherds of Christ Associates pledge their loyal support to the Holy Father, the Pope, and to the teaching authority of the Church.
     
  8. Shepherds of Christ Associates exists under Church law as provided in canons 298 and 299.
     
  9. The existence and activity of all chapters is to be placed under the special protection and guidance of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Chapters exist so that they may, according to the mission of Shepherds of Christ Associates, help to establish the triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the reign of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. All chapter members are strongly encouraged to consecrate themselves to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

     

I would be willing to
support this endeavor
with a $1.00 to $5.00
or more a week.

June 1, 2004

Messenger:         We need to work on ourselves. Examine our
                        consciences. Tell God we are sorry for our
                        sins.

                            There are stumbling blocks we have within
                        ourselves that cause us problems and may
                        have for years.

                            Praying for grace and cooperating with
                        that grace to see beyond our blindness
                        can help us get over willful ways we may
                        act and move on to a new place of
                        holiness greater purity living as the
                        Lord desires of us.

                            Holiness What is it?

                            How does consecrating our hearts to
                        the pure and holy Hearts of Jesus and Mary
                        help us to be more holy.

                            Holiness is living a life of purity,
                        but because of our fallen human nature
                        we may have blindness and had blindnesses
                        for years about ways in which we act
                        that block our continued work to become
                        more like Christ wants.

                            In the St. Ignatian retreat our
                        focus is to let go of those inordinate
                        attachments that keep us stuck in
                        actions that hurt our spiritual life
                        and ultimately hurt others.

                            What keeps us stuck? Jealousy
                        is a big problem. When we stop
                        relationships between others that can
                        help further the Kingdom because of
                        jealousy wanting to be overly possessive to
                        another because of selfishness can block things.

                            We want all to work according to
                        their talents. We have all known "mother-
                        hens" who have stopped the individuals
                        progress by hovering over them,
                        enabling them to be dependent children.

                            We all want to operate in strength
                        doing God's will, being in one mind and
                        one heart.

                            There is a line in relationships
                        there is the line in which both
                        parties perform actions
                        according to God's will to promote the
                        Kingdom.

                            Inside of me is a heart so fixed on
                        my Divine Lover that nothing I say or
                        do with others should be anything that
                        could hurt that union with Him.

                            He is my "motor-force" He is my
                        beloved, my spouse, my one and my
                        all, He is the Divine God and nothing
                        here on this earth could be above Him
                        to me.

                            I use the Blue Books and the messages.
                        They really help me. Sometimes we get pressed
                        on by satan to try to tempt us to do
                        things for our own honor and glory which
                        can become more important to us than
                        God's honor and glory ultimately.

                            A child can go in a candy store and
                        choose all kinds of candies. If a
                        child lives at the candy counter his
                        teeth and body will suffer, besides other
                        things that may be effected like how he acts
                        living on a "sugar-high".

                            Life here on earth is a series of days and minutes
                        and hours and we have just so many. We have
                        bodies that soon die like the decaying
                        flowers, they fade and fall to the ground
                        the life goes from them and they become dried
                        up.

                            Man has a soul, our soul goes on
                        somewhere. Our time is here to prepare
                        us for the life hereafter.

  

    

There will be a big prayer service 

on June 5th in Florida.
