June 13th Holy Spirit Novena
Scripture selection is Day 5 Period II.

The Novena Rosary Mysteries
for June 13th are Glorious.



Jesus speaks:          My people, I have called you to
                            be deep intercessors praying for the
                            priests, the Church and the world
                            to live this mission as I have
                            so deigned.

                                The mission of the Shepherds
                            of Christ, is to be united soldiers,
                            you are My shepherds fighting
                            for this purpose.

                                In a convent, Mother Angelica
                            etc., the people are deeply rooted
                            in oneness for a common mission.
                            They have taken a vow of obedience
                            they operate under that for a common
                            purpose to renew and help the Church.

                                The number of priests are dwindling
                            the Church does not even have priests
                            to administer the sacraments as
— one priest may serve 6

                                I have formed My Movement and
                            the servants and handmaids of the Good
                            Shepherd give their lives to pray for
                            the priests and to serve the priests
                            and their needs. Because a person enters
                            an order and takes a vow of poverty
                            and obedience it would be foolish
                            for another of a higher nature to go
                            and tell them of freedom and
                            how they should be free to
                            develop their talents.

                                A person entering the Shepherds
                            of Christ lives this way of life
                            they live to serve this community
                            as My special soldiers, praying
                            for the priests and doing the Ministries
                            I have called to help renew the Church
                            and the world.

                                The Ministries are as follows —

                                The Priestly Newsletter is to serve
                            the spiritual needs of priests
                            it is the number one reason for
                            the Movement. Eucharistic Adoration
                            and prayer is a vital part of the
                            life, people pray while the
                            Newsletter is being sent out
                            to 189 countries. There is a
                            small band of faithful apostles
                            and servants and handmaids of
                            My Sacred Heart doing this.

                                I have called the people to
                            this mission, they have freely
                            said yes, it is the desire of
                            their hearts, taken monthly in
                            the commitment to live this way
                            of life.

                                I have taught My priests about
                            holy priesthood, love of the Eucharist,
                            Mother at My Side, about the
                            spiritual life in My Newsletter.
                            Fr. Carter was led by the Spirit
                            within to write the Newsletter as
                            he did
— 33 Newsletters before
                            his death over 6 and 1/2 years.

                                I am ignored by many in the
                            Eucharist, people in the Churches
                            many go to other churches because
                            they do not understand the True Presence.
                            My priests are to have a deep love of
                            the Eucharist and love of My Church
                            My priests are to teach the people
                            My sacraments are administered
                            to pour out My grace to the people.
                            Through the sacraments through the
                            hands of My priests I outpour
                            the richest graces.

                                Many think priests should
                            not have to take the vow of
— The priests take
                            this vow
— why would anyone
                            preach to them, a group of priests
                            about someone controlling their
— they freely choose to take
                            this vow of celibacy in the

                                My Movement exists to help
                            the Priestly Newsletter go to all
                            My Priests and tell them about
                            My love in the Eucharist
                            My love in My Church.

                                My Church is My bride.
                            I want My priests to teach
                            My people how to be brides of
                            Christ. How to cherish the
                            gift of the Eucharist where
                            by they are fed and fed with
                            My holy Word.

                                Priests need to talk about love —
                            the grace flowing from
                            My altar, the ways of My Heart
                            I show you My Heart as a symbol
                            of love
— I want love of Me in
                            the Mass, love for the scriptures,
                            telling people about My undying
                            love in the Mass. Setting the banquet
                            table, the wedding banquet for the
                            marriage of our souls, setting the
                            tone for the ways of the heart
                            in which deep love is love
                            about Me and the gift of Myself
                            given to you in the Mass
                                the gift of sacrifice
                                love is sacrifice
                                offering oneself in the deepest
                                    love sacrifice to Me

                            At a wedding Feast men came and
                                they did not partake in the joy
                            you must know that deep love with
                            the Father, Son and Holy Spirit at Mass
                            is a love affair with the Divine

                                I love My People so deeply I give
                            them My Body and My Blood at
                            Mass. I give you Myself in the
                            deepest love. I want you to focus
                            on our love affair and give
                            yourself to Me. So many come to
                            My Mass and they do not even
                            talk to Me. People come on Sunday
                            and two minutes after Mass they
                            are all gone from the Church and
                            I am still deeply in their breast
                            it is like leaving the Marriage

                                I want the deepest intimate love
                            affair with you. I give you
                            Myself in the Eucharist. In these
                            moments after the Mass, after
                            your reception of the Eucharist
                            I implant My love upon your
                            soul. In these 20 minutes after
                            communion, I give you
                            intimate knowledge about Myself.
                            I outpour My richest graces.

                                Those who come as servants,
                            handmaids and apostles freely
                            live this way of life centered in
                            the Eucharist
— living a deeper
                            life of Consecration
— establishing
                            My Movement

                                SHEPHERDS OF CHRIST

                                for future generations —
                            I have established this way of life
                                through My messengers
— Fr. Carter
                            and Rita, centered in Consecration
                            to Our Two Hearts of love

                                You come and you show your
                            love to Me at work
— not in words
                            spoken and taught only, but in
                            participating deeply in the Holy
                            Sacrifice, of giving oneself
                            of singing songs of love
                            of praising Me and loving Me
                            as you sing and praise Me in
                            the words of the Mass, the
                            Holy Scriptures, the actions
                            giving love

                                You come you stand — you say
                            you are sorry for your sins
                            This is the ritual of the Mass
— it
                            is followed by the faithful participating
                            at Mass
— They have a free will
                            to not participate, but they do

                                They can sing or they can say great words
                            giving Glory to God. The focus
                            is love of God.

                                The scriptures are read to
                            deeply ponder My Word. I feed
                            you with My Word.

                                You offer yourselves as a
                            sacrifice to Me.

                                You are deeply united in that
                            sacrifice giving yourself
                            more deeply in love than a
                            husband giving himself in
                            love to his wife.

                                You give to the Deity yourself
                            you offer yourself to God in
— praying as an intercessor
                            for the sake of souls.

                                You are one in the sacrifice —
                            offering yourself in such love
                            to the Father, united to My sacrifice
                            in the Holy Spirit praying for
                            your needs and the needs of the
                            Church and the world. You pray
                            deeply through the intercession
                            of the Blessed Lady in union
                            with all the saints and angels
                            and souls in purgatory

 The Christian Life of Grace - Chapter 3 (excerpt)

e) Relationship with Members of the Church

There is but one true Church of Christ. Yet this one Church has three different states of existence. There is the pilgrim Church, the Church of this world, composed of members who have received the grace of Christ and strive for its development. They have not yet obtained the goal of their efforts, as have the members of the heavenly Church, who enjoy God in eternal happiness. The Church suffering is an intermediate state of existence necessary for those who had not achieved the required purification as members of the pilgrim Church. Although there are these three phases of the Church’s existence, there is a profound union existing between all the members. All these members possess the same basic life of grace in Christ, and this common life establishes the most intimate bonds of love. In our preceding chapter, we discussed the pilgrim Church. Let us now consider the Church suffering and the heavenly Church.

The members of the Church suffering are those who have departed from this life in an incomplete state of Christian development. Their development is incomplete in the sense that grace has not fully taken possession of them, and, as a result, they are yet closed in upon themselves to a greater or lesser degree. They as yet cannot open themselves out in complete love to the Triune God in the beatific vision. They must undergo a further purification, a purification which could have been achieved upon earth with merit. Now the purification must be achieved with no merit attached. The pain of this purification is mixed with the certain expectation of achieving the vision of God. We can hasten the advent of this vision for this people by the offering of prayers and other good works. Scripture itself refers to our action on behalf of those in purgatory in Chapter 12 of the Second Book of Maccabees beginning with verse 38.

The members of the heavenly Church are those in whom the life of grace has taken full possession and has reached its completion in the life of glory. Faith now is unnecessary, as the light of glory gives the human intellect a new strength and capacity for seeing God face-to-face. While the Christian was a wayfarer, he received the imprint of the indwelling Trinity as he shared in God’s own life. Now in heaven that grace-life and possession of God reaches its completion—the absolute completion is not achieved, however, until the resurrection of the body. The divine persons give Themselves to the beatified in a profound union far surpassing that of the indwelling of the Trinity experienced here below.

This life of heaven is still the Christ-life, for just as we possess a share in Trinitarian life here below as mediated by Christ, and exercise this grace-life as structured by Him, so also in heaven is the mediation of Christ present. In the words of Rahner, "One always sees the Father through Jesus. Just as immediately as this, for the directness of the vision of God is not a denial of the mediatorship of Christ as man."14 And not only does the humanity of Christ unite the blessed to God, but also, in some way, to the whole of creation. This is merely a completion of what is begun here below, namely, the union with Christ in His humanity establishing the Christian in a special relationship with God, with other men, and with the whole of creation. We have a glimpse, therefore, of the fullness of life which members of the heavenly Church possess.

The heavenly Church, as St. Thomas says, is the true Church.15 The Church of this earth and the Church of purgatory are, each in its own way, reaching out in loving hope for the heavenly Jerusalem. Vatican II puts it very simply: "The Church, to which we are called in Christ Jesus, and in which we acquire sanctity through the grace of God, will attain her full perfection only in the glory of heaven."16

The members of the heavenly Church can help us in living our life of grace until we too share its fullness with them. Their power of intercession on our behalf is but another ramification of the communal aspect of Christianity. We are meant to help others grow in Christ. We, in turn, are intended by God to receive aid from others—yes, from members of the heavenly Church, as well as from those with whom we dwell here below.

Not only can we be aided by the saints’ intercession, but the example of the canonized saints can also be of great value to us. They have concretely proved that full holiness is possible. Such an inspiration is of real worth when we are tempted to think that Christian sanctity in its higher degrees is impossible of attainment. Moreover, the canonized saints, in their diversity, teach us that there are many authentic versions of Christian holiness. They can be innovators in showing us that there are numerous possibilities in assimilating the mystery of Christ, although the basic assimilation remains the same for all Christians of all times. In the opinion of Rahner this is one of the chief roles the canonized saints exert in the life of the Church.17

Jesus speaks:            I give Myself to you through
                            the hands of holy priests in the Mass,
                            I love My priests so much
                            I give them so very many gifts.

                                A person entering an order
                            gives themselves to the service
                            of that community. A woman
                            entering a convent, a man a
                            seminary intending to be a
                            priest may take a vow of
                            poverty, chastity and obedience.
                            Some priests take the vows
                            of chastity and obedience.

                            Giving yourself to Me - living
                            a celibate life makes great
                            reparation to Me for all the
                            offenses committed sins of the
                            flesh in the world today.

                            The servants and handmaids pledge
                                their lives as special spouses
                                of Christ
— they freely live to
                                serve Me this way with great purity
                                and love.

                                Today My convents and seminaries
                            are dwindling
— I want these holy
                            communities united in love with
                            a particular purpose to still
                            serve My Church.

                                The servants and handmaids are
                            My brides, they live in community
                            their purpose is to live united
                            serving the community in love.
                            The work of My Movement is to
                            help renew the Church and the world.

                            Many come to Catholic colleges today
                                as teacher not steeply rooted in
                                the Gospel. Many are of different
                                disciplines and see that discipline
                                and their own self promotion
                                in teaching it as the reason
                                for their presence there.

                            I desire teachers to come to Catholic
                                Universities and operate in deep
                                oneness for the purpose of helping
                                to develop the whole student
                                in a deeper holy life
— to live
                                productively in the world helping
                                others to make a life rooted in

                                If teachers are so self-centered
                            they focus on themselves and their
                            own recognition as the goal they
                            may overlook their vital role of
                            working as one with other teachers
                            to help develop the student to
                            be a productive person in today's

                                Working together for the common
                            goal of loving God and loving
                            one another is that which
                            will make people happiest and
                            help the world and its people live in
                            peace and joy loving and serving one
                            another and promoting the Kingdom
                            of God.

                                My Movement has been given by
                            Me to help renew the Church and the
                            world. My communities exist to
                            serve this purpose.

                                Apostles and Sub-Centers all
                            over the world help in this
                            mission. Apostles of My Sacred
                            Heart is a special calling
                            These people serve the Ministry
                                and their needs, their focus is
                                only to this Ministry and its
                                needs as their primary commitment
                                and ministry needs
— serving the
                                Church in the ministry by
                                praying deeply for the priests,
                                the Church and the world.

                            Apostles, Servants and Handmaids
                                attend daily Mass
— do one
                                hour of adoration, try
                                to say prayers through the
                                day for the Ministry and
                                live by this way of life
                                    following the Blue Books
                                        Daily writings, Fr. Carter's
                                        writings etc.

                            The Ministries are
                            1) Primarily to circulate the
                                    Priestly Newsletter

                            2) To pray for the priests, the
                                    Church and the world in
                                    prayer chapters all over
                                    the world and the needs
                                    of the Newsletter
                            3) Apostles of the Eucharistic
                                    Heart spending 2 hours
                                    before the Blessed Sacrament
— praying
                                    the prayer manual, praying
                                    for the priests

Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus

My dear fellow Associate Members,

Jesus is calling special apostles to join a new division of the Shepherds of Christ Movement. Here is a message from Jesus given to Father Carter:

My beloved priest-companion, I am requesting that a new prayer movement be started under the direction of Shepherds of Christ Ministries. I am asking for volunteers who are willing to pray before the Blessed Sacrament for one hour, twice-weekly. Members of the Shepherds of Christ prayer chapters, as well as others, are to be invited to join this movement.

These apostles are to pray for the intentions I am giving you. For part of the hour they are to use the prayers of the Shepherds of Christ Associates Handbook. They may spend the rest of the hour as they so choose.

I will use this new prayer movement within My Shepherds of Christ Ministries in a powerful way to help in the renewal of My Church and the world. I will give great graces to those who join this movement. The name, Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus, is to be given to this movement.

I am inviting My beloved Rita Ring to be coordinator for this activity.

I pour out the great love of My Sacred Heart to all. I am Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the flock.
