June 10, 2007 - Feast of the Precious Body and Blood of Jesus

    

                        I don't even know what to write!
                  I love so deeply the Eucharist. I can say
                  today I have tried to tell the world about
                  the Body and Blood of Jesus.

                        I remember this feast from when I was
                  a small child, the month of the Sacred Heart,
                  the deep love I have for my precious Jesus.
                  My mom died June 19 on a Thursday when I was 5.

                       Dear Jesus, I thank You for the Eucharist,
                  my life centers around the Eucharist —
                  everything to me — I run to Jesus before the
                  tabernacle, I know in all my trials and
                  sufferings - Jesus is there.

                        Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus,  —
                  yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes — I know.

                  The presence of Jesus in Church when the
                  Eucharist is there — My life is changed
                  when I spend time with Him before the
                  Eucharist.

                      I ponder the consecration of the Mass —
                  The world around me stops (or so it seems) when the host
                  is raised and I am so united to God —
                  I can always go to that place when I am not
                  at Mass, but anywhere and focus on the Masses going on
                  around the world.

                      I give myself completely — I am one
                  with the Masses going on around the world.

                      My life is His.

                      My song I sing.

                      "Ah sweet mystery of life, at
                  last I've found Thee.

                        "Ah sweet Mystery of life — at last
                  I've found Thee.

                        "Ah I know at last the secret of
                  it all" (the song says, I don't know everything).

                        I see all of our imperfections, holding
                  back our gifts of love to each other because
                  we see so imperfectly and we are all
                  imperfect, jealous, suspicious, angry,
                  not knowing how awesome our own
                  graced soul is.

                       Wait on the Lord, for His love for us
                  is unsurpassing —

                        Real love — Pure love — love that
                  surpasses our deepest imaginings —

                        Oh love of the Heart of Jesus.

                        Bricks are laid to form a foundation —
                  if we stick in impure bricks we can
                  have all kinds of problems —

                        A house is built strong on rock,
                  but we are tainted — and the failure to
                  tell the truth when we recognize faults
                  about ourselves keeps us stuck —

                        Now pretend you have been put in
                  a big hole — no water or food and the only
                  way to get out is to get - the right clues
                  and follow them precisely. If a clue is
                  needed - you cannot tell any tainted things
                  about anything. You must own up to every
                  thing exactly the way it is.

                        Every clue depends on the other to get out.
                  Do you think you will get out?

                        Now once in a while you get a
                  visitor standing at the top of the hole
                  flashing a reminder of something you are
                  overlooking about your tainted motives in
                  acting in something.

                        Hell can be like a hole, people can
                  deceive themselves life-long trying to
                  prove they are right, telling themselves
                  it's okay to sin and telling themselves
                  right is wrong and wrong is right in their
                  case.

                        The thing about giving into satan's
                  deception — since he is the father of lies
                  is this fallacious reasoning begins to
                  blind us more and more as we give into
                  half-truths and deception —

                        The way to the deepest chamber of the Heart
                  of Jesus is paved with a road like the
                  guy in the hole, if we want to go deeper and
                  deeper in His Heart we have to walk
                  a pavement of seeking the truth more
                  and more as God sees things — not as we may
                  let ourselves believe with the taintedness
                  of our wounded human nature.

                        Blindness, spiritual blindness, comes
                  in varying degrees — the more we are rooted
                  in the truth the clearer God's vision
                  becomes to us. God wants us to bring our
                  sins to light in confession, satan
                  tempts us with fallacious reasoning that
                  says "Oh that sin is too big to confess —
                  the priest will not see you so pure
                  anymore" — "It was no sin at all in your
                  particular case - you were justified."

                        Satan has already used his fallacious
                  reasoning to get somebody to give in and
                  sin. People come more and more tainted and
                  can give in quite easily with more and
                  more practice. Lying about the truth keeps
                  people stuck.

                      Now I love the sacraments so much —
                  God gives us Baptism and Communion and
                  Penance — and all 7 Confirmation,
                  Marriage, Holy Orders, Sacrament
                  of the Sick.

                      Think of how important the sacraments
                  and the Church are in our lives and how
                  we can complain and complain and fail to
                  thank God for His gifts to us.

                      I was on a plane and it was smooth — at
                  one point the plane shook and shook — I had
                  been praying the whole trip — we need funds
                  for the Newsletter mailing and wasn't even
                  thinking about the plane in mid air.
                  I fly a lot and this never happens. All of
                  a sudden with the shaking I was deeper than
                  ever connected to God — I know that place
                  I can go to — so one in Him.

                      Some times God gives us a little
                  shake as we are flying at top speed
                  through life and He lets us know we
                  need to shift gears — we are forgetting
                  about Him (too much) and we need
                  to sit straight in our seats with the
                  garment of His grace He gives us for
                  protection.

                    How would it be if the plane had
                  a very bad engine and they took us up
                  and lied to us.

                    The Church is to be a very good plane
                  in tip-top shape as we sail the
                  skies of life — we know we are flying
                  in a plane labeled TRUTH AIRLINES.

                    With the Newsletter — the voice of the
                  Good Shepherd we send 80,000 priests
                  and hierarchy all over the world love and
                  encouragement and our prayers — in
                  a world that is struggling with the
                  truth — we help to strengthen the
                  Church as very fervent members of
                  the body of Christ living deeply in
                  Him. Fed with the Eucharist —
                  living a holy life — going to confession —
                  loving our priests and thanking God.

 

 
 

 

                  living deeper life in Him —
                  help to strengthen the world —
                  His life alive in the branches —

                  AND BEARING FRUIT

                            IN THE WORLD

                            FOR THE

                            KINGDOM OF GOD

 

                  Readings from Today

 

Genesis 14: 18-20

Melchizedek king of Salem brought bread and wine; he was a priest of God Most High. He pronounced this blessing: 

    Blessed be Abram by God Most High, 
        Creator of heaven and earth. 
    And blessed be God Most High 
        for putting your enemies 
            into your clutches. 

And Abram gave him a tenth of everything.

 

Psalm 110: 1-4 

Yahweh declared to my Lord, ‘Take your seat at my right hand, 
till I have made your enemies your footstool.’ 

Yahweh will stretch out the sceptre of your power; 
from Zion you will rule your foes all around you. 

Royal dignity has been yours from the day of your birth, 
sacred honour from the womb, from the dawn of your youth. 

Yahweh has sworn an oath he will never retract, 
you are a priest for ever of the order of Melchizedek.

 

1 Corinthians 11: 23-26

    For the tradition I received from the Lord and also handed on to you is that on the night he was betrayed, the Lord Jesus took some bread, and after he had given thanks, he broke it, and he said, This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me. And in the same way, with the cup after supper, saying, ‘This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Whenever you drink it, do this as a memorial of me. Whenever you eat this bread, then, and drink this cup, you are proclaiming the Lord’s death until he comes.

 

Luke 9: 11-17

But the crowds got to know and they went after him. He made them welcome and talked to them about the kingdom of God; and he cured those who were in need of healing.

It was late afternoon when the Twelve came up to him and said, 'Send the people away, and they can go to the villages and farms round about to find lodging and food; for we are in a lonely place here.' He replied, 'Give them something to eat yourselves.' But they said, 'We have no more than five loaves and two fish, unless we are to go ourselves and buy food for all these people.' For there were about five thousand men. But he said to his disciples, 'Get them to sit down in parties of about fifty.' They did so and made them all sit down. Then he took the five loaves and two fish, raised his eyes to heaven, and said the blessing over them; then he broke them and handed them to his disciples to distribute among the crowd. They all ate as much as they wanted, and when the scraps left over were collected they filled twelve baskets.

     

 

                  Thank God for the Shepherds of Christ Movement.

                  What has God done for you through

                            the Shepherds of Christ Movement —

                            the Blue Books —

                      Your love for the Eucharist —

                      God asked Fr. Carter on July 31, 1994
                  13 years ago to spread these
                  prayer chapters —

                        praying for the priests, the
                  Church and the world —

                        Look at what the Blue Books
                  did for you.

Strip Yourself of You

March 27, 1994

R. God is truly here. Jesus is in our midst. He numbers the hairs on our heads and knows whence they came. He wants to catch us in His loving arms. When we fall, He is there. He is truly here with me at this moment. I do not want to let go. I want to hold on to that which gives me pleasure. It is only in surrendering that God is all that is left. Then I can be about my job of loving and living for Him alone.

This is perfectly clear to me, but I feel I cannot express it any better in words. I am so attached to so many things and people, but it is only in total surrender that the things of God are all there is. Tea was a big thing for me and has been for many years. I rewarded myself at different times during the day. I got such gratification from it that when He asked me to give it up, I said, "Oh, God, I love it!" And He said, "That is what keeps you from increased union with Me."

I see that every time I let go of something very precious to me I jump into His arms. The world becomes less appealing and He is so much more alive and here for me. He is all that our craving soul desires. The more I feed my soul with Him, the more I am in harmony with the purpose of my creation.

All that He says is so simple, yet so hard to do. Who wants to let go of their most precious things? The reward is closer union with God!

                       The more you give in prayer and
                  donations to this Movement — the more
                  we are the family - helping to strengthen
                  the priests, the Church and the world
                  by sending our encouragement, love and
                  prayers and the voice of the Good Shepherd,
                  God is calling all of us to do this — it
                  isn't mine or Fr. Pasquini's or John's or
                  the servants and handmaids.

 

 

90th Anniversary of Mary's apparition at Fatima and Mother's Day

Shepherds of Christ Servants and Handmaids

 

                      Jesus gives us Himself in the Eucharist
                  and is truly present in His Divinity and
                  humanity.

                      Fr. Carter had a dream.

 

 

 

 

                  Have you not deeply learned about the
                  Body and Blood of Jesus through the Shepherds of Christ —

                  The Newsletter has been sent to 5,000,000
                  priests all over the world for 13 years
                  because of your prayers and support,
                  This is a vocation God has called us to       

 
                   support and love our priests in this
                   way and to pray for the priests, the
                   Church and the world.
 
                      God has called you

 

  
 
 
 
                  The world is hungry
                  The world needs the gifts of the Church
                  The world needs the priest
  

 
 
 

   

 
 

 

 

               

                       What would the world be like
                had we not prayed in the Shepherds of Christ
                for 13 years for the priests, the Church
                and the world and
                    not spread 5,000,000
                        Priestly Newsletters

                    Say thanks for the Shepherds of Christ
                    Be a part of this magnificent
                        network of prayer —
                        nourishment and love —

                Our primary purpose of the
                    Movement Shepherds of Christ as
                    designated by Jesus to
                    Fr. Carter is first and
                    always to spread the
                    Priestly Newsletter

                    We need your help
                    We need prayer and
                    We need donations —

                This is a vocation, a family
                    we have been called to

 

  
                The Power is in the
                    Eucharist
                    against evil.

  

    

  

                The Priestly Newsletter is
                    sent from China, Indiana.

                    We need your prayers and support
                    so we can send out the
                    Newsletter and Prayer Manual
                    to 80,000 priests on the Feast
                    of St. Anthony

                June 10, 1962 — 45 years ago
                    Fr. Carter was ordained.

     
                   
 

  

 

  


                Jesus called Fr. John Pasquini
                    to do Fr. Carter's work —
                    we have spread

                    1/2 million Priestly Newsletters
                        since Fr. John started and

                    65,000 of Fr. John's books


                The image of Mary appeared in Clearwater
                    over 10 years ago — several years
                    after Fr. Carter got the message to
                    send the Newsletter to the priests
                    around the world and begin prayer chapters.

                Here are some few responses from Cardinals and
                    Archbishops and Bishops from hierarchy
                    for Fr. John's works
