June 22, 2004

Jesus speaks:      Dear People,

                                       I write to you about the discernment
                            of spirits.

                                There are different places within in
                            which an action can originate. A thought
                            can come within the person and it may
                            be that which is God's will or is not
                            according to God's will if one acts on it.

                                The devil talks in the head, the evil
                            spirit many times to tempt you and lead
                            you astray.

                                You can receive promptings in the heart
                            from the good Spirit, the Holy Spirit.

                                It is necessary to see where a thought
                            originates, if it is what I want you to
                            do. The evil one may tempt over and over
                            again, give suggestions in the mind and
                            the person gives into these promptings doing
                            what the evil one wants a person to do.

                                It is a fallacy to think one should act
                            on all their thoughts. One may think that
                            promptings one may have in the head should
                            be acted upon.

                                Many times the evil one works to deceive the soul, 
                            the evil one wants people to do his work.
                            The evil one wants divisions amongst the brethren,
                            the evil one wants people to sin.

                                The devil works in secrecy many times to
                            deceive a soul. In community life it is advantageous
                            to see each other daily, to allow the Spirit to
                            work powerfully in the community to promote
                            God's Kingdom as the members join in one mind
                            and one heart to praise, honor and serve God.

                                It is important that people in communities
                            keep an open door with their superiors and that
                            they are loyal to the community. As a body of 
                            members live and work together as servants of 
                            God in community life, they can pray united 
                            through the Holy Sacrifice of the
                            Mass with each other to help build up the
                            body of Christ.

                                You are fed through My Body and My Blood
                            and through My Word. I am the Bread of

Messenger:            Sunday I had a vision while speaking to
                            the servants and handmaids and apostles
                            after Mass, I was speaking of positive thoughts
                            and I had a vision of a piece of white bread —
                            I could see it moving and little black ants were
                            carrying it off.

                                Our thoughts race into our minds, many
                            may be as pure and white as the bread and
                            along can come a batch of devils trying
                            to steal our positive thoughts away and
                            carry them off.

                                Christ feeds us with His Body, with His Word. We
                            have the choice to be productive and promote His
                            Kingdom or give into menacing thoughts of
                            negativism, focusing on ourselves in negative
                            ways, sometimes, that seem to cripple us.

                                I look at the first Blue Book Message Jesus
                            wanted in Blue Book I.

                                Here are the first two paragraphs.


Picture of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

May 13, 1993 (excerpt)

Jesus speaks: My dear child, if you stay close to Me, then I live in you and you live in Me. I am He Who created you and I love you with such an intensity that you will never know. My words are your truth. You must abide in My heart in all things. There is no room for doubt. My ways are steadfast, direct, and without error.

    You must stay rooted in Me to ward off the power of the evil one. His grip is paralyzing and crippling. His power is stronger every day.

Messenger:             Here is how Jesus has revealed things to me in
                            the messages:

Jesus speaks:          I will open the Floodgates of
                                heaven and outpour My grace to
                                you My beloved people.
                                I have revealed Myself most intimately
                                to you in these revelations. I have given
                                you writings not revealed to the holiest
                                saints to lead the world into this era of
                                great love when My Heart will Reign
                                and the heart of My Mother will triumph.


December 18, 1995   (excerpt)

Excerpt from the Mass Book


    The place Jesus took me was into the deepest recesses of His Heart. I was enveloped in His burning love. It was a red room with heat and an intense glow. I was swept away in this embrace, and I only existed in Him. The power of the Almighty God enveloped me, and I only existed in Him. There was no fear, for I was existent in this Almighty Being. My heart was wrapped in the eternal embrace of this Supreme Being. The security, the power I know was His deep presence in which I existed.

    I knew the room was red and warm. I knew His immenseness, but I felt my own completeness in Him. I did not feel little, as a speck, but elevated and empowered for I existed then in Him in a most special way.

Jesus speaks:      I write to you of the workings of the evil one
                                in your lives. I tell you, you must discern
                                the spirits to see if you should act or
                                not act on the way you are prompted.
                                The evil one talks in your head to deceive
                                you — he works in secrecy.

                            There was a big pipe that supplied all the water
                                to a big institution. It came from the
                                street. A big block was present in the
                                big pipe. The whole place was without

                            I work in My Church.

                            I may work in a certain institution.

                            If the big pipe coming in as the main
                                source was blocked then the main
                                power coming from Me could be

                            In an institution I work in structure.
                                The purity of those higher up can
                                majorly act like a block for those under
                                them, if they are self-centered and not
                                rooted in Me.

                            The higher the person, the bigger the block
                                of My Power working within them.

                            That is why I gave this message to Fr. Carter



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:

  1. 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.
  2. For the Pope.
  3. For all bishops of the world.
  4. For all priests.
  5. For all sisters and brothers in the religious life.
  6. For all members of the Shepherds of Christ Movement, and for the spread of this movement to the world.
  7. For all members of the Catholic Church.
  8. For all members of the human family.
  9. For all souls in purgatory.

June 22, 2004 message continues

Jesus speaks:     All these hours of Eucharistic Adoration and
                                praying the prayers I gave to Fr. Carter can majorly
                                help to bring down great grace for
                                the hierarchy in the Church.

                            You must pray for your leaders in any institution
                                that they are rooted in Me.


John 14: 6

Jesus said: I am the Way; I am Truth and Life. No one can come to the Father except through me.


  John 8: 12

When Jesus spoke to the people again, he said: I am the light of the world; anyone who follows me will not be walking in the dark, but will have the light of life.


John 1: 16-17

Indeed, from his fullness we have, all of us, received—one gift replacing another, for the Law was given through Moses, grace and truth have come through Jesus Christ.


Romans 5: 17

It was by one man’s offence that death came to reign over all, but how much greater the reign in life of those who receive the fullness of grace and the gift of saving justice, through the one man, Jesus Christ.


Colossians 1: 19-20

because God wanted all fullness to be found in him and through him to reconcile all things to him, everything in heaven and everything on earth, by making peace through his death on the cross.


Colossians 2: 9

In him, in bodily form, lives divinity in all its fullness, and in him you too find your own fulfilment, in the one who is the head of every sovereignty and ruling force.


June 22, 2004 message continues

Jesus speaks:     Satan wants to stop you. Satan wants to
                                attack the top, so they break this connection
                                with Me.

                            I am the Head.

                            Power flows through Me.


                            That main pipe must remain open.
                            With regard to spiritual discernment.

                            If those discerning are unaware of the workings
                                of the evil one themselves, how can they
                                spiritually discern others who come to them.

                            I have in these writings unveiled many of
                                the ways satan works in your lives —
                                never written before.

                            I have in these writings revealed insights to the
                                hidden mysteries.

                            I have taken you to the depth of My Heart and
                                told you secrets of My most intimate love.

                            A sister was called to talk to the other sisters
                                about how the evil spirit could be working
                                in their lives and how the good Spirit was
                                leading them in the right direction to
                                deeper holiness and love.

                            She herself knew little of how the evil spirit
                                worked and did not recognize his tactics
                                or how he worked in secrecy, division,
                                argumentation and willfulness.

                            If people who discern fail to recognize the
                                crafty ways that satan is working in
                                their own lives, they will not be a help
                                to those they spiritually discern and
                                may in fact not recognize the workings
                                of the good Spirit or evil spirit and
                                advise them incorrectly.

                            When one is called to help lead others they must —
                                1) pray for grace to be aware of the workings
                                        of the spirit to advise correctly —

                                2) some today — disregard how very strong
                                        the evil one is and how he works
                                        in secrecy and division

                                3) adhering to the Word
                                    following the 10 Commandments
                                    listening to the Holy Father
                                    help to lead the soul in the right direction

                            Because the world is the way it is, it can
                                continually go into a mode of thinking
                                which is not conducive to following
                                the will of God.

                            Prayer was removed from many schools.

                            Abortion is accepted as okay by many.

                            Some movies show things that are sinful as
                                all right.

                            My pictures, My images and that of My
                                Mother are maimed and disrespected by some.

                            Little children, hear evil in some homes through
                                the television.

                            Violence is taught to children and adults
                                through the media.

                                The evil one is strong. Pornography is seen
                                in the isles of the grocery stores and magazine
                                stands. Many Health food stores and health magazines,
                                display pornography in the line of health.

                            A blind man led the people into the forest.
                                He knew the way because he lived on
                                the edge of the forest and walked it
                                every day.

                            In his walk through he thought the thorns
                                on the trees were rose bushes, when in
                                fact they were not at all. He felt "cushy
                                things" he thought were beautifully colored
                                flowers when in fact they were big brown
                                growths. He had dealt with all things
                                in his blindness drawing conclusion,
                                after conclusion that was very wrong.

                            You are like blind men on the path of life.

                            Remember the lady who cut off the ham and
                                her husband said why did you do that.

                            After researching why her mother cut off
                                the ham they found out two generations
                                back her grandma did it to fit the ham in
                                the pan and so

                            Today she did it — every ham she baked she cut 
                                the end off for no reason except she was 
                                taught to do so from her mom.

                            In My church generation after generation ways
                                of living a spiritual life, attending
                                Mass, priests celebrating Mass,
                                devotion to My Heart and My Mother's
                                heart have been taught or not taught.

                            My Mother appears at Fatima and she tells you —
                                unless a sufficient number of people
                                have consecrated their hearts to My
                                Heart and My Mother's heart — you will
                                not have peace in the world.

                            First Friday, First Saturday devotions are made
                                light of in many churches —
                                 habit — lack of realization that
                                I want this —
                                I appeared to St. Margaret Mary long
                                    ago and told you



Promises of Our Lord to those devoted to His Sacred Heart: 

  1. I will give them all the graces necessary in their state of life.
  2. I will establish peace in their homes.
  3. I will comfort them in all their afflictions.
  4. I will be their refuge during life and above all in death.
  5. I will bestow a large blessing on all their undertakings.
  6. Sinners shall find in My Heart the source and the infinite ocean of mercy.
  7. Tepid souls shall grow fervent.
  8. Fervent souls shall quickly mount to high perfection.
  9. I will bless every place where a picture of My Heart shall be set up and honored.
  10. I will give to priests the gift of touching the most hardened hearts.
  11. Those who promote this devotion shall have their names written in My Heart, never to be blotted out.
  12. I promise you in the excessive mercy of My Heart that My all-powerful love will grant to all those who communicate on the first Friday in nine consecutive months the grace of final penitence; they shall not die in My disgrace nor without receiving their sacraments; My divine Heart shall be their safe refuge in this last moment.

Excerpt from the Spirituality of Fatima

                In her message that day, Our Blessed Mother told the children:

    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)

                                ways of loving Me or not loving Me —
                                time spent before the tabernacle


From the Priestly Newsletter

March/April 1995

On Prayer Before the Tabernacle

Bishop Fulton Sheen, one of the most admired and influential speakers of this century, gives witness to the efficacy of praying before the Blessed Sacrament: “When I stand up to talk, people listen to me. They will follow what I have to say. St. Paul says: ‘What do you have that was not given to you? And if it was given, how can you boast as though it were not?’ (1 Cor 4:7). The secret of my power is that I have never in fifty-five years missed spending an hour in the presence of our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament. That’s where the power comes from. That’s where sermons are born. That’s where every good thought is conceived.”6

Jesus speaks:         time spent after Mass


Excerpt from Spirituality Handbook

"When at Mass, which is subject to special rules of the liturgy, is over, the person who has received Holy Communion is not thereby freed from his duty of thanksgiving; rather, it is most becoming that, when the Mass is finished, the person who has received the Eucharist should recollect himself and, in intimate union with the Divine Master, hold loving and fruitful converse with Him. Hence they have departed from the straight way of truth who, adhering to the letter rather than the sense, assert and teach that, when Mass has ended, no such thanksgiving should be added, not only because the Mass is itself a thanksgiving, but also because this pertains to a private and personal act of piety and not to the good of the community." (5)

Jesus speaks:     How do I reach you —
                                I tell you through My messages of love
                                    in God's Blue Book.

                                I tell you of the workings of satan in
                                    your lives — how he talks in your heads.

                                I tell you about the promptings I give

                                    one another in your heart.

                                In that hour, I help you sort out all the
                                    debris you have heard and help
                                    you to know the will of God —
                                    your path is more directed. (because of health

                                    rich grace outpoured in that hour
                                    before the Blessed Sacrament.

                                    for one to devour


John 9: 1-40

As he went along, he saw a man who had been blind from birth. His disciples asked him, ‘Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he should have been born blind?’ ‘Neither he nor his parents sinned,’ Jesus answered, ‘he was born blind so that the works of God might be revealed in him.

'As long as day lasts
we must carry out the work of the one
  who sent me;
the night will soon be here
   when no one can work.
As long as I am in the world
I am the light of the world.’

    Having said this, he spat on the ground, made a paste with the spittle, put this over the eyes of the blind man, and said to him, ‘Go and wash in the Pool of Siloam’ (the name means ‘one who has been sent’). So he went off and washed and came back able to see.

    His neighbours and the people who used to see him before (for he was a beggar) said, ‘Isn’t this the man who used to sit and beg?’ Some said, ‘Yes, it is the same one.' Others said, 'No, but he looks just like him.’ The man himself said, ‘Yes, I am the one.’ So they said to him, ‘Then how is it that your eyes were opened?' He answered, ‘The man called Jesus made a paste, daubed my eyes with it and said to me, "Go off and wash at Siloam"; so I went, and when I washed I gained my sight.’ They asked, ‘Where is he?’ He answered, ‘I don’t know.’

    They brought to the Pharisees the man who had been blind. It had been a Sabbath day when Jesus made the paste and opened the man’s eyes, so when the Pharisees asked him how he had gained his sight, he said, ‘He put a paste on my eyes, and I washed, and I can see.' Then some of the Pharisees said, ‘That man cannot be from God: he does not keep the Sabbath.’ Others said, ‘How can a sinner produce signs like this?' And there was division among them. So they spoke to the blind man again, 'What have you to say about him yourself, now that he has opened your eyes?’ The man answered, ‘He is a prophet.’

    However, the Jews would not believe that the man had been blind without first sending for the parents of the man who had gained his sight and asking them, ‘Is this man really the son of yours who you say was born blind? If so, how is it that he is now able to see?’ His parents answered, ‘We know he is our son and we know he was born blind, but how he can see, we don’t know, nor who opened his eyes. Ask him. He is old enough: let him speak for himself.’ His parents spoke like this out of fear of the Jews, who had already agreed to ban from the synagogue anyone who should acknowledge Jesus as the Christ. This was why his parents said, ‘He is old enough; ask him.'

    So the Jews sent for the man again and said to him, ‘Give glory to God! We are satisfied that this man is a sinner.’ The man answered, ‘Whether he is a sinner I don’t know; all I know is that I was blind and now I can see.’ They said to him, ‘What did he do to you? How did he open your eyes?’ He replied, ‘I have told you once and you wouldn’t listen. Why do you want to hear it all again? Do you want to become his disciples yourselves?’ At this they hurled abuse at him, ‘It is you who are his disciple, we are disciples of Moses; we know that God spoke to Moses, but as for this man, we don’t know where he comes from.’ The man replied, ‘That is just what is so amazing! You don’t know where he comes from and he has opened my eyes! We know that God doesn’t listen to sinners, but God does listen to people who are devout and do his will. Ever since the world began it is unheard of for anyone to open the eyes of someone born blind; if this man were not from God, he wouldn’t have been able to do anything.’ They retorted, ‘Are you trying to teach us, and you a sinner through and through ever since you were born!' And they ejected him.

    Jesus heard they had ejected him, and when he found him he said to him, ‘Do you believe in the Son of man?’ ‘Sir,’ the man replied, ‘tell me who he is so that I may believe in him.’ Jesus said, ‘You have seen him; he is speaking to you.’ The man said, ‘Lord, I believe,’ and worshipped him.
                    Jesus said:

It is for judgement
that I have come into this world,
so that those without sight may see
and those with sight may become blind.

    Hearing this, some Pharisees who were present said to him, ‘So we are blind, are we?’ Jesus replied:

If you were blind,
you would not be guilty,
but since you say, ‘We can see,’
your guilt remains.

Jesus speaks:         You are like blind men and you think
                                    you are so smart


John 10:1-19

‘In all truth I tell you, anyone who does not enter the sheepfold through the gate, but climbs in some other way, is a thief and a bandit. He who enters through the gate is the shepherd of the flock; the gate-keeper lets him in, the sheep hear his voice, one by one he calls his own sheep and leads them out. When he has brought out all those that are his, he goes ahead of them, and the sheep follow because they know his voice. They will never follow a stranger, but will run away from him because they do not recognise the voice of strangers.’
Jesus told them this parable but they failed to understand what he was saying to them.
        So Jesus spoke to them again:

In all truth I tell you,
I am the gate of the sheepfold.
All who have come before me
are thieves and bandits,
but the sheep took no notice of them.
I am the gate.
Anyone who enters through me
   will be safe"
such a one will go in and out
and will find pasture.
The thief comes
only to steal and kill and destroy.
I have come
so that they may have life
and have it to the full.
I am the good shepherd:
the good shepherd lays down his life
   for his sheep.
The hired man,
   since he is not the shepherd
and the sheep do not belong to him,
abandons the sheep
as soon as he sees a wolf coming,
   and runs away,
and then the wolf attacks
   and scatters the sheep;
he runs away
  because he is only a hired man
and has no concern for the sheep.
I am the good shepherd;
I know my own
and my own know me,
just as the Father knows me
and I know the Father;
and I lay down my life for my sheep.
And there are other sheep I have
that are not of this fold,
and I must lead these too.
They too will listen to my voice,
and there will be only one flock,
one shepherd.
The Father loves me,
because I lay down my life
in order to take it up again.
No one takes it from me;
I lay it down of my own free will,
and as I have power to lay it down,
so I have power to take it up again;
and this is the command
   I have received from my Father.

These words caused a fresh division among the Jews.
