The church needs to have the stucco replaced

and also the community building.

It is about $38,000 to repair it.

People pray in the church 24 hours a day.

We have prayed in there for 11 years.

The archdiocese gave the church to us

for this purpose for a small price.

 

Can you help us?

                    Jesus: I went into the garden — I knew full
                        well — all who would be lost despite
                        My suffering and death, they would
                        say no to the grace I gave them —
                        keeping on giving in, in sin —
                        not praying to not give into temptation —
                        not disciplining their will, when they
                        should have

 

 

Sorrowful Mysteries

 

                Agony in the Garden

                (1) Jesus: I sweat blood for the sins of this
                        earth today —
                        can you not come with a gentle heart
                        to let go of your old addictive
                        habits — co-dependency — misery —
                        I call you to the mastery of self-
                        ridding yourself of inordinate attachments
                        that block you from serving, reverencing
                        and praising your God.

                (2) Jesus: The more you give into the negative unloving
                        spirit — the more the devil brings others to
                        tempt you to sin.
                        You can become locked in a self-imposed
                        misery.

                     Where as following the Holy Spirit leads you
                        to love, peace and joy even in
                        suffering.

                (3) Jesus: You have a free will — No one can change
                        your free will — You have a free will
                        to choose obedience to God's will,
                        and holiness or disobedience to God's
                        will and this rebelliousness of the creature
                        to the Creator causes great unhappiness —

                        It is like a map
                        The map to holiness follows the love of God,
                            service to God, selflessness.

                        The map to misery is being addicted,
                            enslaved to anger, unloving ways —
                            only you can choose conversion
                            as I outpour My grace.
                            I am giving My grace to you now.
                            You must cooperate with the grace
                                if you want to change.

                     I sweat Blood for your sins
                        I call you to pray for the precious
                            souls I died for.

                (4) Jesus: I was alone, My Apostles slept, Peter was
                        made head of the Church for he had a
                        humble, loving heart — even though
                        he sinned — he was sorry — Peter
                        took responsibility for his sins and
                        repented.

                (5) Jesus: Judas, however, betrayed Me, he
                        despaired, he wouldn't say he
                        was sorry.

 65. FIFTH EXERCISE
  
        This is a meditation on hell. Besides the prepara-
        tory prayer and two preludes it contains five points
        and a colloquy
.

                        PRAYER.  The preparatory prayer will be as usual. 

                        FIRST PRELUDE.  This is a representation of the place.
                        Here it will be to see in imagination the length,
                        breadth, and depth of hell.

                        SECOND PRELUDE.  I should ask for what I desire. Here
                        it will be to beg for a deep sense of the pain which the
                        lost suffer, that if because of my faults I forget the love
                        of the eternal Lord, at least the fear of these punish-
                        ments will keep me from falling into sin.

                        66. FIRST POINT.  This will be to see in imagination
                        the vast fires, and the souls enclosed, as it were, in
                        bodies of fire.

67. SECOND POINT.  To hear the wailing, the howling,
cries, and blasphemies against Christ our Lord and
against His saints.

68. THIRD POINT.  With the sense of smell to perceive
the smoke, the sulphur, the filth, and corruption.

69. FOURTH POINT.  To taste the bitterness of tears,
sadness, and remorse of conscience.

70. FIFTH POINT.  With the sense of touch to feel the
flames which envelop and burn the souls.

71. COLLOQUY.  Enter into conversation with Christ
our Lord. Recall to memory that of those who are in
hell, some came there because they did not believe in the
coming of Christ; others, though they believed, because
they did not keep the Commandments. Divide them
all into three classes:

    1. Those who were lost before the coming of Christ;
    2. Those who were lost during His lifetime;
    3. Those who were lost after His life here on earth.

    Thereupon, I will give thanks to God our Lord that
He has not put an end to my life and permitted me
to fall into any of these three classes.
    I shall also thank Him for this, that up to this very
moment He has shown Himself so loving and merciful
to me.
    Close with an Our Father.

 

                (9) R. The two standards St. Ignatius talks about
                        are the Standard of Christ — in which
                        Christ sends out cohorts to
                        build His Kingdom.

                    The Standard of Satan — in which satan
                        wants rule and sends out cohorts
                        to build his kingdom — to get
                        men to give into his
                        temptations and sin mortally,
                        unrepented and go to hell forever.

                (10) R. The angels fell because they said
                        "we will not serve God."
                        God created us to know, love and serve Him.
                        God gave us a free will —
                        Eve rebelled against God —
                        Adam and Eve sinned — sin and disorder entered the world.

         

 

 

                Scourging at the Pillar

                (1) Jesus: I was beaten for your sins —
                        I have commanded you to love God and
                            to love others as yourselves —
                        This is My commandment to love —

                (2) Jesus: I have called you to be obedient to God's
                        will —
                        disobedience,
                        seeking control — dominance for dominance
                            sake leads to misery.

                (3) Jesus: I was whipped for your sins —
                        I ask you to love — an act of the will
                        and some say - "no" and choose pride,
                        dominance and will not love.

                (4) Jesus: I cried bloody tears in the garden —
                        I love My precious souls so much —
                        I am love —
                        I created you out of love.
                        I created you in My image and likeness
                        to love.

                (5) Jesus: There is to be love for all the souls I died
                        for — for you to come with a soft and
                        gentle - self giving heart of love.

                (6) Jesus: A person may try through force, anger,
                        pouting, holding out to enforce
                        their dysfunctional behavior on
                        others —
                        Pray to be likened to My Heart.

                    Song: Teach Me to Love With Your Heart


                       

                (7) Jesus: I went into the garden — I knew full
                        well — all who would be lost despite
                        My suffering and death, they would
                        say no to the grace I gave them —
                        keeping on giving in, in sin —
                        not praying to not give into temptation —
                        not disciplining their will, when they
                        should have.

                (8) Jesus: You are to take responsibility for your
                        sins, say you are sorry —
                        pride keeps a person stuck —
                        they say to themselves I can do no
                        wrong —
                        then they lie about what they did —
                        lying about sin — when you need
                        to admit it, hurts your relationship
                        with Me and others.

                    I am the way, the truth and the life —

                    To be one with Me — you must pray
                        to be truthful about your sins —
                        I was beaten for your sins —
                        don't worry what others think
                            of you — worry for your
                            soul and your relationship
                            with Me.

                (9) Jesus: I sweat blood in the garden, I was beaten
                        raw at the pillar for the lies, murders,
                        the sins of the flesh, pride etc.

                (10) Jesus: My skin was lacerated with deep, deep
                        wounds — I stood in a puddle of My
                        own blood —

                        When called upon to grow in holiness —
                            do not rebel against the will of God —
                            Eve wanted to be equal to God.

      

 

                The Crowning with Thorns

                (1) Sing: Crown Him with Many Crowns

                (2) Jesus: Power — many want power —
                                so they lie for power over others
                                when they should obey those
                                over them with love.

                (3) Jesus: Your vocation is to love the Church and
                        the world —
                        Love the souls of the earth, I
                        died for.

                (4) Jesus: When you go to bed you can never live
                        the moments of this day again.

                (5) R. I remember a book once called
                            NO TALK, NO TRUST and NO FEEL
                                 Addicted to Misery —

                    A person addicted and who does not admit
                        it becomes more and more enslaved —
                        a person can be addicted to gambling —
                        they like the rush —
                        it starts out little and it grows —
                        they do not have mastery over themselves —
                        they have this inordinate attachment —
                        a person addicted to gambling finally
                        can lose everything —

                        A person addicted to misery does not
                            see how when others are growing
                            in love and relationships — they are
                            turning more and more inward to
                            a self-inflicted place of darkness —

                    We have a free will  to choose love or
                        just give into how we feel —
                        satan works in this sadness
                        where a person refuses to discipline
                        their will —

                    God gave us a free will —

                    Happiness is found in choosing the
                        will of God — of surrendering —
                        of not controlling.

                    A person who is not disciplining their
                        will by choosing the will of God
                        becomes more and more addicted
                        to misery, enslaved —

                    Here is the purpose of the spiritual exercises
                        of St. Ignatius.

    and the regulation of one's life in such a way that
    no decision is made under the influence of any
    inordinate attachment

    

                (6) R. The angels who fell said
                        "we won't serve God."

                    This is a bad place to be since the greatest
                        commandment says —
                        and our salvation depends on obeying
                        it.

 

Matthew 22:36-40

'Master, which is the greatest commandment of the Law?' Jesus said to him, 'You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and the first commandment. The second resembles it: You must love your neighbour as yourself. On these two commandments hang the whole Law, and the Prophets too.'

  

                (7) R. Did you ever think about how God set up
                        the night and day —
                        the sun comes up every day —
                        I have heard people talk about 3 days
                            of darkness —

                    What about a person who shuts down,
                        doesn't do what they are supposed
                        to — lives in anger and control
                        for days and months —
                        This is days of darkness to me —
                        Living addicted to misery and trying
                            to force others through some
                            means to put up with our
                            behavior.

                (8) Jesus: I sweat blood for your sins —
                        I was beaten raw for your sins —
                        My head crowned for the sins of
                        pride and I cried tears of blood because
                        of all I suffered — some would not
                        bend their stubborn heart and change.

                (9) Jesus: The spiritual life is about
                        changing, dying to those ways — not
                        likened to Me and growing to be
                        more like Me —

                        Conversion

Excerpts from The Spirituality of Fatima

by Fr. Edward Carter, S.J.

   

May 13, 1917 

    "Do not be afraid, I will do you no harm..... I am from Heaven.

    "I have come to ask you to come here for six months in succession, on the 13th day, at the same hour. Later on, I will tell you who I am and what I want

    "Are you willing to offer yourselves to God and bear all the sufferings He wills to send you, as an act of reparation for the sins by which He is offended, and in supplication for the conversion of sinners?

    "Pray the Rosary every day in order to obtain peace for the world, and the end of the war." (8)

  

June 13, 1917

    "God wishes you to remain in the world for some time because He wants to use you to establish in the world the devotion to my Immaculate Heart. I promise salvation to those who embrace it, and their souls will be loved by God as flowers placed by myself to adorn His throne." (10)

  

July 13, 1917

    "During her appearance in July, Our Lady, in answer to Lucia's plea, promised that in October she would work a great miracle so that all might believe and know who she was. Again, the Mother of God told the children to sacrifice themselves for sinners and to say many times, especially when making a sacrifice, this prayer: "O my Jesus, I offer this for love of Thee, for the conversion of poor sinners, and in reparation for all the sins committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary." (11)

    "During this same July apparition, Mary showed the three children a vision of Hell. She told them:

    "You have seen Hell, where the souls of poor sinners go. To save them, God wishes to establish, in the world, devotion to my Immaculate Heart. If people do what I tell you, many souls will be saved and there will be peace.

    "The war (World War I, then raging) is going to end. But if people do not stop offending God, another and worse one will begin in the reign of Pius XI. When you shall see a night illuminated by an unknown light [January 2, 1938], know that this is the great sign that God gives you that He is going to punish the world for its many crimes by means of war, hunger, and persecution of the Church and the Holy Father. (12)

    "To prevent this, I shall come to ask for the consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart and the Communion of Reparation on the five first Saturdays. If my requests are granted, Russia will be converted and there will be peace. If not, she will scatter her errors throughout the world, provoking wars and persecutions of the Church. The good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer, and various nations will be destroyed....

    "But in the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph, the Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, Russia will be converted, and a certain period of peace will be granted to the world." (13)

  

August 19, 1917

    She told them she was greatly displeased by the action of the mayor. As a result, the miracle promised for October would not be as impressive as originally planned. (15)

 

September 13, 1917

    More than 30,000 people were present in September, and saw a shower of mysterious white petals fall to within 10 feet of the ground before dissolving into the air. Many also saw the globe of light bearing the Lady come to rest atop the tree, and the branches bend as though someone were standing on them. Later, they saw the cloud depart into the east, from whence it had come.(16)

  

October 13, 1917

    I am the Lady of the Rosary. I have come to warn the faithful to amend their lives and to ask pardon for their sins. They must not offend Our Lord any more, for He is already too grievously offended by the sins of men. People must say the Rosary. Let them continue saying it every day.(17)

    While the people in attendance were beholding the great Miracle of the Sun, the three young visionaries, and they alone, were privileged to see striking visions in the heavens:

    As Our Lady had promised, St. Joseph had come with the Holy Family and had blessed the world. Then, Our Lady appeared as the Mother of Sorrows, accompanied by her Divine Son, Who also blessed the world. Finally, Lucy had seen the Blessed Virgin, dressed in the brown robes of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, crowned as Queen of Heaven and Earth, holding a brown Scapular in her hand, with her infant Son upon her knee. However, in none of these visions had any of the figures spoken to the children. (18)

    Besides the messages associated with the major Fatima apparitions, there were other revelations given by Our Lady. Before Jacinta died, she told of other messages given her (during her illness) by Mary:

    More souls go to Hell because of sins of the flesh than for any other reason.

    Certain fashions will be introduced that will offend Our Lord very much.

    Many marriages are not good; they do not please Our Lord and are not of God.

    Priests must be pure, very pure. They should not busy themselves with anything except what concerns the Church and souls. The disobedience of priests, to their superiors and to the Holy Father, is very displeasing to Our Lord.

    I can no longer restrain the hand of my Divine Son from striking the world with just punishments for its many crimes.

    If the government of a country leaves the Church in peace and gives liberty to our Holy Religion, it will be blessed by God.

    Tell everybody that God gives graces through the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Tell them to ask grace from her, and that the Heart of Jesus wishes to be venerated together with the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Ask them to plead for peace from the Immaculate Heart of Mary, for the Lord has confided the peace of the world to her. (19)

                        CONVERSION           REPARATION

      

 

                Jesus Carried His Cross

                (1) Jesus: I carried My cross, laden with your sins and
                        I fell under My cross —
                        Oh My people obey your God — I love
                        you so much, I died for you.

                (2) Jesus: Judas betrayed Me with a kiss —
                        Think of how you betrayed Me —
                        Did you lie to yourself about your
                            offenses against Me and others —
                            Go to confession — say
                        you are sorry for how you were unloving
                        to Me and others.

                (3) August 23, 1993 - On His Passion

Jesus: My dear child,
I was condemned to death, death on a cross. They gave Me a big cross and made Me carry it. They stood around and glared at Me. It weighed on My shoulder and I pulled at it until it finally moved. Every step was almost impossible as I dragged it, weighing so heavily on My shoulders.

My shoulder felt as if the bones inside would crack and the cross would fall through to the ground. I couldn’t drag it any more. I tried, I fell. I fell and its weight fell on Me. A guard hit Me with something sharp. It really hurt because he wanted Me to move, and fast! People were watching — on with the show! How dare I fall in the middle of the show! He hit Me again and the blow really stung Me. I got up because it hurt so badly. I tried to walk on.

My Mother was in the crowd. She looked at Me and her face looked red and hurt. Tears rolled down her cheeks like rain and as her eyes met Mine, I was hurt so by her sorrow! She was always by My side, silent and loving. She was My mother of love! She is always there next to you when you suffer.

I fell again and he (the guard) really hit Me. It (the cross) was so heavy that he and I together could barely move it. It seemed as I walked, heavier with the sins of the world heaped on it. My hands were bleeding. Blood ran from the wounds of My thorns and My head throbbed, seeming to make the wounds in My head bleed even more. Some of the Blood was dried, some of it running all over My Body. I had so many cuts and bruises — and people watched and laughed!

I am Jesus, Son of the Living God, and they laughed and mimicked Me! Oh, such hardened hearts! How vile can men’s heart become? The devil’s grip is paralyzing and crippling.

 

                (4) August 23, 1993 - On His Passion continues

The walk was so long up a hill and over rocks — the cross had to be lifted over the rocks. My Body was bleeding so badly! My heart was pounding. I knew that the salvation of all men depended on My love. Therefore, I went through such agony.

I thought of My intense love for you — that many would go to heaven because of My suffering — and I continued to the top of the hill. At the top they laid Me on the cross and with a big hammer nailed My hands to it. It was the worst (suffering) yet. My hands were nailed with big nails and the big hammer. Oh, it was unbelievable! Then, as if that weren’t enough, with a big nail they nailed through both feet.

Then they lifted the cross and banged it into (a hole in) the ground. My shoulders ached from how I hung. My head bobbed and My neck ached and they laughed and said, "Now save Yourself." I hurt so much! I suffered this way for hours — which seemed like forever — and they glared at Me and laughed! My Mother watched in such agony.

For love of you, to My death I gave you My Body. My child, I shed My Blood and gave you My life that you might be with Me forever in heaven — not for a day, a month or a year, but forever with Me in heaven.

I am the true Bread come down from heaven. He who eats My Flesh will have life forever. For the drink I give you is My Blood and food you eat is My Body. Who would lay down his life for a friend? I did, for you. I love you this much, child. Forget about those who reject you. You have My life that I gave you and I give you life eternal.

I am the One true God. I am the Light of life. He who abides in Me will have life eternal, for the drink I give is My Blood and the food I give is My Body. Drink and eat and have everlasting life.

My child, that is all you need to know. Love one another and be good that you may enter into My kingdom.

end of August 23, 1993

 

                (5) Jesus: I sweat blood for you —

                (6) Jesus: I have blessed you — do you say
                        thanks, do you love —
                        When will you begin to love?

                (7) Jesus: You were created to know, love
                        and serve your God.

                (8) Jesus: Look at the lives of the saints —
                        They grew more and more in their service
                            and love — in building the
                            Kingdom.

                (9) Jesus: I am love — you were created in My
                        image and likeness.

                (10) Jesus: Your vocation is to witness.
                        You were called in baptism to go
                            out and spread the Good News.

                        The price I paid for loving you was
                            My own life, My Blood —
                            My all.

     

 

                Crucifixion

                    Excerpt from Red Rosary Book - March 21, 1995 - Crucifixion

  1. R. He hung for three agonizing hours against the darkened sky. He gave His flesh! He gave His blood! He gave the last beat of His Heart, the last breath in His body! Covered with blood and weakened, He hung on the cross!

  2. Jesus: I speak and so many do not listen! I am crying out to you to listen to My voice here, to read My letters for they are truly letters of love that I give to each one of you. It is in reading these letters that you will know more and more the immensity of the love that I have for you. You are My soldiers that I send into the sick world with the medicine to heal so many hearts. You are the chosen ones I have called here to this Center. Please, I beg you, take My call seriously, for I am truly Jesus and I speak to you this day. So many take My plea lightly. I beg! I plead! I ask Rita to talk more and more about My pleadings. You do not know how I am longing for you to be so close. How I want you to surrender and let Me operate in your hearts! You tap ever so lightly when there is an ocean of My love that I want to give to you. Surrender your hearts and read My letters of love for it is in these letters that you will know My love more and more.

  3. Jesus: I give Myself to you at every Eucharist and you take it so lightly! Take Me seriously, My children, for I am truly with you with much love! How it wounds My aching Heart that you do not listen.

  4. Jesus: I am sending you into battle in a world that is godless, that has forgotten God, but with your hearts filled with My love. Will you answer My call?

  5. Jesus: Surrender! Surrender! Surrender to the God Who gave His life for you!

  6. Jesus: As Mary walked by My side on the way to Calvary, as she stood under the cross, she is by your side in all your sufferings. You are never alone.

  7. Jesus: I give you My very own Mother!

  8. R. As she held His little baby body, she now holds His lifeless body in her arms under the cross.

  9. Song: At the cross her station keeping stood the mournful Mother weeping. Close to Jesus to the last.

  10. R. This rosary is from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, so united, one with each other. To love Jesus is to love Mary. To love Mary is to love Jesus.

 

John 19: 25-27

Near the cross of Jesus stood his mother and his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary of Magdala. Seeing his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing near her, Jesus said to his mother, ‘Woman, this is your son.’ Then to the disciple he said, ‘This is your mother.’ And from that hour the disciple took her into his home.

 

John 19: 31-37

It was the Day of Preparation, and to avoid the bodies’ remaining on the cross during the Sabbath—since that Sabbath was a day of special solemnity—the Jews asked Pilate to have the legs broken and the bodies taken away. Consequently the soldiers came and broke the legs of the first man who had been crucified with him and then of the other. When they came to Jesus, they saw he was already dead, and so instead of breaking his legs one of the soldiers pierced his side with a lance; and immediately there came out blood and water. This is the evidence of one who saw it—true evidence, and he knows that what he says is true—and he gives it so that you may believe as well. Because all this happened to fulfil the words of scripture: 

    Not one bone of his will be broken; 

  and again, in another place scripture says: 

    They will look to the one 

        whom they have pierced.

 

                R. We are to see ourselves as standing with Mary under the
                    cross — We are united to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass,
                    the sacrifice of Calvary sacramentally made present
                    united to Jesus — We are members of the
                    body of Christ, the Church.

 

 

 

      Betty is a handmaid who has prayed in the

        China Church for 11 years. To get from her

        house to the church she uses a walker and

        must go over a creek and a little bridge.

        We wanted a little place she could rest

        by the Church. We need about $1,000 to

        make this happen. Can you help us?

Words of Jesus to Members of
Shepherds of Christ Associates:

"My beloved priest-companion, I intend to use the priestly newsletter, Shepherds of Christ, and the movement, Shepherds of Christ Associates, in a powerful way for the renewal of My Church and the world.

"I will use the newsletter and the chapters of Shepherds of Christ Associates as a powerful instrument for spreading devotion to My Heart and My Mother's Heart.

"I am calling many to become members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. To all of them I will give great blessings. I will use them as instruments to help bring about the triumph of the Immaculate Heart and the reign of My Sacred Heart. I will give great graces to the members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. I will call them to be deeply united to My Heart and to Mary's Heart as I lead them ever closer to My Father in the Holy Spirit."

- Message from Jesus to Father Edward J. Carter, S.J., Founder, as given on July 31, 1994,
feast of Saint Ignatius Loyola, Founder of the Society of Jesus (The Jesuits)

Yes — All the ends of the earth have seen
the power of God.

 

     God has called us to be united as a family in
the Shepherds of Christ.

     This is a vocation — to pray deeply for
the priests, the Church and the world and
to help support the Newsletter and the
Ministries.

     Remember the image of Our Lady
of Clearwater on the building. We have
very special Fatima statues so you can
have a special place of prayer in your
homes, praying the rosary for your family
and for the priests, the Church and the
world. If you are interested in these
very special Fatima/Clearwater statues
e-mail me with your phone number
and address 
info@sofc.org.

     Those using the special statues
will be united to us in a special way —
We want you to pray the Shepherds of
Christ prayers for the priests, the Church
and the world from your special place
in your home.

     When people have set up a prayer corner/niche
with this statue, Fatima/Clearwater glass, they have
reported that their families have received special
blessings. With this statue it is important to pray
the prayers in the red prayer manual and consecrate
your home and family to the Sacred Heart and
Immaculate Heart.

Call Sheila or Doris about statues or go to China or
Clearwater.
