June 13th Holy Spirit Novena
The Novena Rosary Mysteries
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
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
needed 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
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
celibacy The priests take
this vow why would anyone
preach to them, a group of priests
about someone controlling their
freedom 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
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
You come you stand
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
love 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 Churchs 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 Gods own life. Now in heaven that grace-life and possession of God reaches its completionthe 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 othersyes, 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

June 12, 2005 message continues
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
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
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

needs as their primary commitment

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.
This is indeed a special calling for us to unite in one heart with His Eucharistic Heart and pray for the following intentions:
- For the spread of the devotion to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary culminating in the reign of the Sacred Heart and the triumph of the Immaculate Heart.
- For the Pope.
