June 26th Holy Spirit
The Novena Rosary
July 2nd - July 5th
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?
Available for $10.00 each plus postage

God is calling Abram
and Sarai laughs
God was testing them —
Sarai was to conceive
Many barren women in
CONCEIVED - God is Almighty
Living a very holy life can help to bring down
great grace for the world —
When you want unity —
Not people wanting their own way —
There is no family if everybody wants
their own way — opting for control —
Eventually everybody gets stronger
their god becomes being in control,
what they want
Soo — many divorces — many where the
man and woman wouldn't work
united even with children.
In a marriage look at a mom and dad
of a baby and 2 small children
They are 'other' focused — they are not
selfishly thinking of themselves
In a marriage with children —
You learn that somebody
else is more important
You have to take care of
Song: A Song from Jesus
Jesus is head of the Church
Jesus was crucified for our sins —
Thomas More was beheaded
John the Baptist lost his head
Mary's image lost the head
Genesis 18: 1-15
Yahweh appeared to him at the Oak of Mamre while he was sitting by the entrance of the tent during the hottest part of the day. He looked up, and there he saw three men standing near him. As soon as he saw them he ran from the entrance of the tent to greet them, and bowed to the ground. ‘My lord,’ he said, ‘if I find favour with you, please do not pass your servant by. Let me have a little water brought, and you can wash your feet and have a rest under the tree. Let me fetch a little bread and you can refresh yourselves before going further, now that you have come in your servant’s direction.’ They replied, ‘Do as you say.’
Abraham hurried to the tent and said to Sarah, ‘Quick, knead three
measures of best flour and make loaves.' Then, running to the herd, Abraham took a fine and tender calf and gave it to the servant, who hurried to prepare it. Then taking curds, milk and the calf which had been prepared, he laid all before them, and they ate while he remained standing near them under the tree.
‘Where is your wife Sarah?’ they asked him. ‘She is in the tent,’ he replied. Then his guest said, ‘I shall come back to you next year, and then your wife Sarah will have a son.’ Sarah was listening at the entrance of the tent behind him. Now Abraham and Sarah were old, well on in years, and Sarah had ceased to have her monthly periods. So Sarah laughed to herself, thinking, ‘Now that I am past the age of childbearing, and my husband is an old man, is pleasure to come my way again?’ But Yahweh asked Abraham, ‘Why did Sarah laugh and say, "Am I really going to have a child now that I am old?" Nothing is impossible for Yahweh. I shall come back to you at the same time next year and Sarah will have a son.’ Sarah said, ‘I did not laugh,’ lying because she was afraid. But he replied, ‘Oh yes, you did laugh.’
Matthew 7: 21-29
‘It is not anyone who says to me, "Lord, Lord," who will enter the kingdom of Heaven, but the person who does the will of my Father in heaven. When the day comes many will say to me, "Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, drive out demons in your name, work many miracles in your name?" Then I shall tell them to their faces: I have never known you; away from me, all evil doers!
Therefore, everyone who listens to these words of mine and acts on them will be like a sensible man who built his house on rock. Rain came down, floods rose, gales blew and hurled themselves against that house, and it did not fall: it was founded on rock. But everyone who listens to these words of mine and does not act on them will be like a stupid man who built his house on sand. Rain came down, floods rose, gales blew and struck that house, and it fell; and what a fall it had!’
Jesus had now finished what he wanted to say, and his teaching made a deep impression on the people because he taught them with authority, unlike their own scribes.
The priest at Mass
said it is about hearing
and responding to the call to be a disciple of Christ.
He said, it is not about just talking about it,
but answering the call and doing it —
The priest said, when we try to fix things ourselves
without God's help — we make a mess —
We need God to be in charge —
How can we be so undisciplined to not
not go to daily Mass
not go to confession
The Shepherds of Christ has a rule of life
prayer — Morning Offering
1 hour adoration
Adoration Friday 12:00 - 3:00
pray on the hour

Humility is truth
God is first
Others are second
"I am third"
God wants us to be in union with Him —
The person loving Christ is not selfish —
They do what they do for God —
They give themselves for His service —
They want purity from sin and faults
They live a virtuous life
put Christ on the throne
Conversion means we love
Christ and give ourselves totally to God
Genesis 9: 1-13
God blessed Noah and his sons and said to them, ‘Breed, multiply and fill the earth. Be the terror and the dread of all the animals on land and all the birds of heaven, of everything that moves on land and all the fish of the sea; they are placed in your hands. Every living thing that moves will be yours to eat, no less than the foliage of the plants. I give you everything, with this exception: you must not eat flesh with life, that is to say blood, in it. And I shall demand account of your life–blood, too. I shall demand it of every animal, and of man. Of man as regards his fellow–man, I shall demand account for human life.
He who sheds the blood of man,
by man shall his blood be shed,
for in the image of God
was man created.
Be fruitful then and multiply,
teem over the earth and subdue it!’
God spoke as follows to Noah and his sons, ‘I am now establishing my covenant with you and with your descendants to come, and with every living creature that was with you: birds, cattle and every wild animal with you; everything that came out of the ark, every living thing on earth. And I shall maintain my covenant with you: that never again shall all living things be destroyed by the waters of a flood, nor shall there ever again be a flood to devastate the earth.’
‘And this’, God said, ‘is the sign of the covenant which I now make between myself and you and every living creature with you for all ages to come: I now set my bow in the clouds and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth.
We see our own wretchedness —
we see our inclination to evil
we discipline our wills, renunciation —
We love God
We want to be likened to Him
Put on Christ
We want purity from sin and faults
We renounce our will opposed
to God to follow God's will —
Doing all for the honor and glory of God
not vain glory —
Doing all for His holy name
We wish to serve God and love God
To live a happy life we must
I am the way, the truth and the life
We keep His commandments —
We tell the truth —
We strive to be likened to God
We are humble — not puffed up —
not dead, sterile, dry
inactive — settled in — no growth
Laziness can be a trap —
Spiritual laziness and self-will not doing
God's will, but our own will
opposed to God
Sarah laughed —
In the rosary I received 13 years ago on Tom's
farm it is this call to us
June 25, 1996
This night started a new era, I would do
rosaries that summer on Tuesday nights,
at Tom's Farm —
I finally ended the rosaries of the summer
August 27, 1996 with Mary crying out in
'Mary's Message' — I was praying
with everyone facing the river — I was on a
hill in a chair and she cried out and I felt the
emotion in my throat — she spoke through
me — her heart wailing — tears were in me that
were not from me and she cried out
from the Rosary of August 27, 1996
Mary: I stood beneath the cross of my Son, and my Heart was in such pain for I saw Him before my eyes. I saw Him covered with blood. I saw Him die. My Heart, my children, my Heart to watch my Son, but my Heart, my Heart, how I suffered for my little children of the world that give in to this world and give up the love of my Son. O my little children of light, I give you this message. Carry this light into the darkness for your Mother Mary, for I stood beneath the cross and I cried. I cried for the little ones. I cried for the young ones, the ones that do not care and will lose their souls. How do I make you see for you will not listen to me? What can I do? I come. I appear. I beg. I plead. I give you these gifts from my Son, and you reject me. I do not deliver messages very often anymore for I have been ignored. The message is the same. You do not read the messages I have given to you. Please help me. Help the little children. I appear. I appear. I appear, and I am ignored. I stood beneath the cross, and I cried. I cried, and my Heart was in such anguish for my little children, for I am searching for them this day as I searched for the Child Jesus. Please, please help me. I cannot hold back the hand of my Son any longer. I am Mary, your Mother. I ask you to help my children. You are my children of light.
end of Mary's Message, August 27, 1996
I have delivered the rosary messages from Mary since
1994 — Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary
and people laughed at me —
even though Mary appeared every day for 14 months
delivering them —
they kicked me out of the Holy Spirit Center 3 times
The corner fell off the building
March 22, 1994 on Lucia's birthday —
Can anyone penetrate the heart of one who
laughs at the cry of Mary to help in the work
of helping souls get to heaven —
The night of August 12th before the rosary I would do
August 13, 1996 on Tom's Farm — Mary appeared
all night and I cried to God —
I laid on the floor as I had never done and
I asked God the Father to hear my prayer as
Mary appeared all night
Then she appeared again the next day August 13, 1996.
And God sent John W. soon after that to be the
President and Dan N. on August 13, 1996
Then after 2 1/2 years of Mary's apparitions on the 5ths and
daily 14 months and the 17th meetings —
And Mary's image appeared in Clearwater
December 17, 1996 and the Red Rosary Book went out
shipped from the printers
December 19, 1996
Mary: My dear children, I give to you, my Son, Jesus, born in a stable in Bethlehem on Christmas morn. He is the Almighty God, the Light of the World.
I appear to you, my children, on a (former) bank in Florida. You have made money your god! Do you know how cold are your hearts? You turn away from my Son, Jesus, for your money. Your money is your god.
I am Mary, your Mother. I do not appear as I once appeared to you. I am asking you today to circulate my message given on a tape on the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, December 12, 1996. Please circulate this tape now. Give it to as many people as you can. I am Mary, your Mother. Please circulate my Rosary Book.
end of December 19, 1996
Excerpt from December 19, 1996
Jesus: ...And the light shone in the darkness and the darkness grasped it not, but to as many as responded, they became the children of the light and from them His life flowed into the hearts that were cold and dark and slowly, very slowly, the light began to steal across the darkened sky and the moon was covered with blood. The blood was the blood of the Lamb. The blood represented the blood He shed to give us life...
Excerpt from December 22, 1996
Jesus: ...I am not angry with you, My messenger. You must suffer now to write My messages for the world. How could you write had you not experienced My pain in your soul? You are My hand, that I am using to write the messages of My Heart for the world. My Heart was crowned with thorns. So, too, will your heart be pierced and wanting to bleed. Bleed, little heart, My Heart bled for you.
And the moon will be covered with blood. It was the blood of the Lamb and it poured forth on a sinful world to cleanse them of their sin, and I give you My Body and Blood in the Mass and I am ignored...

Mary by day
Mary appeared for 7 1/2 years and somebody knocked
off her head
God has called —
All the Blue Books circulated — over a mission
All the prayer manuals - millions
7,000,000 Priestly Newsletters
God called —
did you laugh like Sarah?
"You have made money your god"
God calls and you are to answer — not just
talk about being God's disciple —
I watch the routines —
It's nice to have a little 'cubby hole' —
A little nick we settle in
We are comfortable —
We can think of ourselves and what we
And old stale routine
"Don't anybody bug me"
This can be a spiritual trap

TO CHANGE OUR
obedience — like Jesus to the Father —
not seeking dominance for dominance sake
not jealous, not anger, not slothfulness —
Sing: Take Lord Receive
Settling in in the spiritual
life to a little
comfortable cubby hole —
can be a trap to our
spiritual growth —
Letting go of inordinate attachments
From The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius,
by Louis J. Puhl, S.J. p.11
21. SPIRITUAL EXERCISES
Which have as their purpose the conquest of self
and the regulation of one's life in such a way that
no decision is made under the influence of any
23. FIRST PRINCIPLE AND FOUNDATION
Man is created to praise, reverence and serve God
our Lord, and by this means to save his soul.
Prayer from St. Ignatius
Lord, teach me to be generous.
Teach me to serve you as you deserve;
To give and not to count the cost;
To fight and not to heed the wounds;
To toil and not to seek for rest;
To labor and not to ask for any reward,
Save that of knowing
that I am doing your will.
Prayer of St Ignatius
Soul of Christ, sanctify me
Body of Christ, save me
Blood of Christ, inebriate me
Water from the side of Christ wash me
Passion of Christ, strengthen me
O good Jesus, hear me
Within Thy wounds hide me
Permit me not to be separated from Thee
From the wicked foe defend me
at the hour of my death call me
and bid me come to Thee
That with Thy saints I may praise Thee
For ever and ever. Amen.
God calls us to be disciples and serving
Him in His army —
not talk about service
To do it His way — not I do what I want
(1) spread the prayer chapters
(2) help spread the writings to the hierarchy
and priests to spread the consecration
(3) to help me do what God has asked —
willingly — not be selfish and
block God's plan to help bring
in the era of peace
I did a rosary and Mary appeared and Jesus appeared
here were the messages
Messages from the Rosary of February 3, 2009
Jesus: Let go to Me. Let go and let Me touch your soul. So tight, wound up like a drum. And I am with you here, and this is My building and the building of My Mother. For I have given to the world this great gift, that you will know more and more, the love that your God has for you, the love of the Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart.
It is in this that you will know the peace that Mary promised at Fatima, but you must listen to the message that she gave to you in spreading the consecration, and consecrating your homes, and consecrating your families, and praying as I have directed Fr. Carter for the priests, the Church and the world, in praying the rosary, and spreading this to the schools, and more and more, trying to work with the rosary makers that you spread the rosary to the schools for the children will be touched.
It is through the rosary that you will know more and more, the mysteries of Our lives, that you will be able to live as I have called you to live. For you do not see the importance of this building to the Father.
He has spoken to you. He has told you over and over again, how important it is to the plan that He has given to this world. For He is the Creator and you are the creatures, and you are not pleasing your God, in your disobedience and the ways that you have acted. It is because of the prayer here, that you have appeased your God. Do not minimize My request for the services that I have called for from this building any longer. Our Father
Jesus: Our Lady appeared at this building that all could see, for 7 1/2 years, almost ignored by most of the world. My people, you are offending your God. Pray with all your heart. Beg for mercy. Do not minimize My request for My building in Florida, to spread the consecration to Our Two Hearts, to pray the rosary, for frequent reception of the Eucharist, to tell the world of the great gifts given in the Catholic Church, to encourage all to be baptized. I am Jesus and I have spoken. Hail Mary
5. Jesus: And so you are busy about many things because I have called you, and I have allowed you to be tested over and over again. And I know of your yes and I know of your struggle, and I am with you in it all, for you are never alone. For the work that you do is the work to help the souls of this earth, the souls that I died for. And yet you may feel the struggle, and that is what suffering is. Suffering is suffering. But I am close to you, My child in all that you experience.
The building that you have been given is the building of My Father, a gift for the world. And it is to be guarded by the Shepherds of Christ that you will give your hearts, and for those who will help and contribute, that you will be able to maintain this building, and do what I have asked you to do from this building, that there will be peace on this earth, that you can help to bring to completion more the Fatima mission, that you will spread the prayer chapters for the priests, the Church and the world.
But you must have great faith. You must have a heart of love, and one of goodness that to those who come, your efforts are those to help them, to help them to know what I tell you now, to not give into the evil one to feel pressed on, but to realize how I am right with you and I am helping you and I love you so.
7. Jesus: And you feel like you are tried in doing My will, and yet you look at Me on the cross, you see My body covered with wounds, My hands with nails and the nail in My feet. You see My head crowned with thorns, and you know that they nailed Me to the cross.
8. Jesus: And I did it for you, and I did it for the love of My precious souls. And I call to you today from this building to spread this love to the whole world, that you pray your prayers to help make reparation for the sins of the people of this earth, and that you never lose hope, but you feel that deep connection with Me and with My Mother, and that you know that we are giving you this commission to spread the love of Our Two Hearts to the world, to never falter or to become weak.
But to become empowered, because this is the place given to you from God the Father, and to those that I have called to help you, to help you in the payment. Continue to pray. Pray ardently. Pray for your donors. Pray that you will be able to keep this place, a place in which great grace and healing will be granted to those who come and pray fervently, and pray with you in these retreats. I will outpour My richest graces. Do you hear Me, My child? I am speaking to you in clear tones. You must listen and take My message to heart.
1. Jesus: Have you felt the pulling back of many of those that are to help you, of pulling back, of pulling back? And I have called them, I have called them, and I have called them by name. And they do not answer the call that I have given to them, and so it is more and more difficult. And the evil one tests through many, that pull back and pull back, when they are being called. You must pray My child, pray for them, for I have called many to help you.
2. Jesus: You can say 'no', or you can say 'yes'. You can say 'let somebody else do it'. You can say 'God is not talking to me' or 'Mary did not appear on the building'. But in all of it, the bottom line is, you are unwilling to do the helping. You do not want to be bothered. And when you hear Me call you softly in your heart, or I ask you to do something, very explicit, you do not listen, because you do not want to.
3. Jesus: Pray to the Holy Spirit, that you will answer with a willing spirit, that you will see always, with the right reasoning, of looking through the Father's eyes at the world below, rather than looking through the tainted vision and tainted habits, that you have allowed yourself to acquire. Pray to the Holy Spirit to rid you of vices, that have stopped you and slowed the process, for souls are at stake. And I, Jesus Christ, who died for these souls, call out to you this day. You are here and they are here struggling. Do not focus on yourselves and be selfish. Focus on the souls that you will be able to reach, if you pray hard to the Holy Spirit and give with a willing spirit of love.
4. Jesus: I have watched many give into their emotions and their feelings, and they are determining their actions by how they are emotionally or in their feelings. You have a free will to choose right or wrong. You cannot ever say, "Well, the devil made me do it." The devil did not make you do it. You have a free choice and with right reason, using your intellect, you can choose good rather than evil. Take responsibility for your actions. Do not give into satan to trick you once again, to allow you to go deeper and deeper into habits, that cause you trouble and hurt others. Pray to the Holy Spirit that you will be filled with the Holy Spirit, that you will answer the call that I am giving to you now, that you will let go of the enslavement to which you have given into satan.
5. Jesus: I call you to holiness. I call you to unity. I call you to obey the structure. I call you.
Sing: Holy, Holy — Holy Is His Name
7. Jesus: Do not test a just God any longer. Pray for mercy for your fellows, and live lives of greater holiness, for it is in your lives of holiness, in praying for the priests, the Church and the world, that you have appeased your God. I love you, I love you, I love you.
end of excerpts from February 3, 2009
R. Jesus has requested we come here this evening. Each of us being called by Him to be here. He asks us to ask Tom if we could pray the rosary here. Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary are messages that are received from Jesus and Mary during the recitation of the rosary. Jesus asked me to read two little messages that I received.
On December 24, 1994, Mary said, "Whenever you pray the rosary I will be there and Jesus will be there."
On March 18, 1995, Jesus said, "These are My messages for My beloved ones. I am handling this. You are unaware of what is coming. You must pray constantly for all you work with. Satan wants to stop you and the rosary now. The rosary is given as a gift from Our Hearts to the world. Do not underestimate the power of the rosary prayed this way. I will give you many graces, graces that will open hearts to the messages. The rosary is given to the world. This is a special gift from our Hearts."
Jesus: I am with you in a very special way. I have called each of you to come here this evening and to pray the rosary. Open wide your hearts and let me fill you with My burning love. I will give you such graces that you will know more and more My love for you. You must be open and listen - listen carefully to the words that I speak to you. I am Jesus. I have called you. You are My chosen ones that I will send into this dark world and it is through My life, alive within your hearts, that this world will be lighted. You are My apostles that I am sending into the darkness. Your hearts filled with My love will radiate life to the darkened world and all will know that I live. I live this day in your hearts. I love you. I love you. I love you.
R. We see the body of Jesus, covered with wounds and we see His head crowned with thorns and His hands, with the nails driven in His hands and His feet. We see a man, withered and hanging from the cross. This is the Almighty God. This is our Savior. This is the love that He has for each one of us — that He gave Himself that we would share in His life.
R. We see the price that Jesus paid. God gives us a sharing in His life through baptism. Do we value this great gift that is given to us? Do we realize — how we complain and how we are so many times in our hearts — and Jesus is outpouring great gifts to us every moment in our lives. Let us stop and think what it is, that the Almighty God gives us a sharing in His life through Baptism.
R. In the windows of the Rosary at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center, we see next to the withered body of Jesus, the glorified body of Jesus, adorned in light and glistening. We see His glorified wounds in the Resurrection window. We see our beloved Savior, who came forth victorious after they put Him to death.
Jesus: My dear beloved ones, I am allowing you to suffer in your lives but you too can come forth victorious. As I rose from the dead, you too can grow more and more in your life with Me. You must be patient through all of the struggles and stay fixed to My Heart. It is through My love that you will know how you should be in this world, this day. You must come to Me.
R. It seems many times, Jesus, that it is so hard, that the more I try to spread things to this world, that I am faced with such struggles. I love you so deeply within my heart and I want to spread this love to the ones who are hurting, the souls that I know are in need of this love, that may be lost, that they are going down the wrong road. I hear Our Lady over and over again tell me of the souls that will be lost and my heart is saddened so much of the time because of what Our Lady has told me. It is so hard many times as I struggle. I beg you, Jesus, to give me the grace to be able to withstand all of the suffering and the persecution, all of the trials that I suffer this day in this world, that I may focus always on Your love and helping souls to get to heaven.
Jesus: I am outpouring My grace to you. You are My apostles that I am sending into this world to spread the light into the darkness. You will struggle with many trials but you will know growth within your heart. You must stay fixed in My love for you. Come to My Heart and I will bathe you in My love. I love you, I love you, I love you. I died but on the third day I rose victorious. You too will suffer but you will rise victorious if you stay rooted in Me and My light will shine through you. Many will be touched and many can turn from their evil ways, you must live to be a light — let them see My love in you.
Jesus: Are you afraid? Do you struggle? Do you know that I am with you at every second, that you are never alone? As your heart beats and as you breathe, I am with you and every breath that you take, I am with you, My beloved ones. You are guarded by My hand. Do not be afraid for I am with you and I will protect you. You I have called and I have chosen and I will guard you. You must come to Me and I will give you strength.
The Ascension of Our Lord into Heaven
R. ...And He took them out near the town of Bethany and He raised His arms and He ascended into heaven and a cloud took Him out of sight and the apostles, from below, were awe struck, as they saw the beloved Lord go into the sky. Think of that, to be able to watch Jesus as He ascended into the sky!
R. The apostles were filled with fear. They walked with Jesus and talked to Jesus. They ate with Jesus and knew Jesus but they did not comprehend. Jesus promised to send the Holy Spirit to them.
R. We are dependent on God. This is His plan. He has called us. Each one of us here has been called by Our Lord to help to spread His life and His love to this world. We must realize that even though we struggle, that it is this God who works through us, that will accomplish the work and that we are not doing this without His help. We must go to Him. We must spend time alone with Him, that He can reveal to us the Father's plan for us, that we will know what He is telling us, what we should do, that we are not making the decisions ourselves, that we surrender and beg to know His will and do it. We are hearing from the Holy Spirit what God wants us to do. It is the Father's Plan and He has called us to be a part of His plan in a very special way.
R. The apostles would go out to the world and would spread the message of Jesus' love and we see the Church as it is today. The Apostles were busy — they were called, they answered the call. We also know that we will go into a new era where the Sacred Heart of Jesus will reign and the Immaculate Heart of Mary will triumph, where there will be an era of great peace where hearts will fervently love Jesus, with the greatest love. We will worship His adorable Heart and will love Mary. We are the apostles that He has called to take this message to the world, now. He has called the members, especially, in the Shepherds of Christ Movement to join in one mind and one heart in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary and to go forth to deliver this message of love.
R. The souls are oh, so hungry this day. See the bloodshed in the Church. We see the murder of innocent babies in the womb of their mother. We see the homosexuality, we see the unfaithfulness of married partners to one another. We see the vileness on television, we see so many poisons in our world — these are coming from the hungry souls that are longing for the love of God and He has called us in a special way and given to us great graces that we will be joined ever closer to His Heart and the heart of His Mother to carry this love into this world. He is calling to us this evening in this rosary to open our hearts that He will fill us with His grace that we will become so close to Him, become more one in Him, and that He will dwell in us in a special way and that His love will emit from our being, that His love will come forth from our eyes and our faces and our hearts. As we live in this world and He lives in us we are so favored and so chosen and so loved by Him that He has called us to this special mission in the Shepherds of Christ Ministry. We thank You so much, Jesus, for this great calling and we ask you to help us to be open to receive the grace that You are giving to us at this time and that we will hear the messages that you are delivering so that we will go forth according to the Father's plan and be the lights that will shine in the darkness.
R. On Ascension Thursday May the 25th, 1995, in great suffering I heard Jesus call out, "I am alive, I am alive, I am alive" and He said that He was calling Fr. Carter to reach all the souls on this earth with His love. He is calling us in the Shepherds of Christ Movement to join in a special way, in such oneness with Him, that His life will come forth through us. Who are we that God lives in us and that His life is emitted in us. What an honor! But, He is letting us see with eyes unveiled, to see more and more into the vision — the vision and the plan of the Father.
Jesus: I am with you in a very special way. I love you with such love. As you open your hearts and I unite more and more in your heart, I will live in you and others will know My love through you. I have called you. I have called you by name, My chosen ones. Who will I send if you turn away? I love you with the deepest love and I give to you great graces to carry out this mission. Who will I send if you turn away?
Song: Hear I Am Lord
Song: Let Us Build the City of God
Jesus: I am alive. I am alive. I am
alive, and I live within your hearts. Whom will I send if you turn
away? I have called you. You have been chosen. Will you go into this
darkened world with your hearts filled with My love? I want to live
in you. You must come to Me.
You must come so that I may be so close to you. I want to unite in such oneness with you. My beloved ones, open your hearts and let Me fill you with My burning love. I am Jesus. I have called you by name. Will you turn away from Me?
The Descent of the Holy Spirit
suddenly there came from heaven a sound as of a violent wind which
filled the entire house in which they were sitting; and there
appeared to them tongues as of fire; these separated and came to
rest on the head of each of them. They were all filled with the Holy
Spirit and began to speak different languages as the Spirit gave
them power to express themselves.
Acts 2: 2-4
R. The apostles were filled with fear. They had locked themselves in the upper room and the Holy Spirit descended upon them and they were transformed from fear to fearlessness and they went out to preach the gospel and thousands were converted.
R. We pray to the Holy Spirit to come upon us, to fill our hearts with the fire of God's love for He is alive and He lives within us in a special way when we are in the state of grace. Dear Holy Spirit, fill us with this permeating action within our hearts, that we are lifted high, that as we go about with the love of God as the apostles traveled about and they were not afraid — they were locked in prison, they were persecuted, but they knew the power of the love of God. His love is a mighty force. His love is alive this day. We must pray to the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts that we will not be afraid, that we will go forth as His apostles, into this new era — this great calling that He has called us to in the Shepherds of Christ Movement to spread the messages of His love.
R. Mary said at Fatima: until we consecrate our hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, pray the rosary and observe the First Saturday devotion, making reparation to her Immaculate Heart, that we will not have peace in this world. But, it is through the Shepherds of Christ Movement that we are spreading this consecration to the world. We must pray fervently for the strength to carry out this mission for the Fatima message is reaching completion and it is centered in these three things. We must fervently give our hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary that They can work in us to spread the message of His love to this world.
Jesus: I love you. I love you. I love you. I give to you My Heart. Come into the deepest chamber of My Heart and I will bathe you in My burning love . Your hearts are hungry for this love. You wander and you roam a barren desert and your hearts are empty. I am giving to you the grace to come to My Heart and join in the deepest union. I love you. I love you. I love you. Surrender at this moment and let Me fill you with this love.
Jesus: Only a heart that is soft and supple will unite to My Heart. You must rid yourself of all bitterness and unforgiveness, for a heart that is divided will not unite to My Heart. My Heart is a Heart of love. I call you to be one. I call you to be one - to be united. You must give yourselves in the consecration so that you are joined in one mind and one heart.
R. I give myself to You, My beloved Savior, with my whole heart, my whole soul and my whole being and I long to be united more and more to your burning heart of endless love. I look at Your Heart in the picture and I see Your hand pointing to Your Heart. Why do we not understand that it is only in love that we will get peace in our hearts, that we must love God and love one another?
R. We cannot talk about one another.
Jesus: I am calling you to join in one mind and one heart. You must rid yourself of all divisions. My Heart is a Heart of love. Pray for the grace to forgive all those that you are harboring hatred against. I am Jesus. An angry heart will not unite with My Heart of love.
R. The apostles proceeded steadfastly ahead for they were filled with the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit lifts our spirits high and we are filled and joyous inside but satan tries to drag us down. We must pray fervently to the Holy Spirit that we do not give in to the temptation of satan to try to drag us down and to have wounded spirits.
R. Love is a force. The love of God is a mighty force that heals and binds all people together. As we consecrate our hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, there is such force and we are filled with such love. This is a great gift that God has given to us, this Movement and this Consecration that we are joined in one mind and one heart, in the fervent love of Jesus and Mary.
Song: Immaculate Mary
The Assumption of Our Lady in Heaven
R. We see the angel Gabriel appear to Mary and he tells her of the plan of the Father that she is to be the Mother of God. In the Assumption we see Mary as she is taken into heaven, body and soul. She struggled and she suffered. She knew joy and she knew pain, but the plan of the Father unfolded and she was taken, body and soul, into heaven.
R. This is the same plan of the Father this day. Mary appeared at Fatima and Mary told them that,
"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 25, 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)
R. She told them what they must do to avoid this. She told them that they must consecrate their hearts, pray the rosary and observe the first Saturday devotion. They ignored their heavenly Mother. We see the bodies strewn on a heap in the World War II, the terrible events that occurred. After the sun came, almost crashing to the earth in the great apparition, October 13, 1917, and they did not pay attention to Our Lady.
R. Our Lady has appeared over and over again to me and has told me the same exact message and we do not listen to Our Lady. We will go into this great era of peace and the Sacred Heart of Jesus will reign and the Immaculate Heart of Mary will triumph. We are being called in the Shepherds of Christ Movement to go out into the world, to spread His love. This is Mary's peace plan for the world. The peace or war of the world depends on these practices. We have been called and we have been chosen as apostles to carry this message out that we may go more peaceably into this era and They are giving to us great graces to accomplish this mission. This is the plan of the Father. Mary was taken, body and soul, into heaven. We too, someday, will be taken into heaven if we love and serve the Lord.
R. How can we say no to our Heavenly Mother? She does not appear as she once did. She appeared for 14 months and people do not listen because they do not want to change their ways, they want to make this earth their end. Mary is telling us that we must change our ways, that we must quit offending God. We must say many prayers and discipline our wills and make sacrifices.
R. At Fatima she showed the three, very young children, a vision of hell and the vision was horrifying. It is accounted in the book I passed out. Mary said on July 13, 1917, to the children: "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..."
January 25, 1988 at Medjugorje: Dear
children: Today, again, I am calling you to complete conversion. I
am inviting you, dear children, to convert fully to God.
R. Mary appeared at Medjugorje for 15 years.
R. Mary showed us at Fatima that this was an authentic message. When 70,000 people saw the sun look as if it would come crashing down to the earth, when they saw the earth dry before their eyes, she gave to them a great sign but it was ignored and there followed World War II. The messages I have received just lately from Jesus and all through the month of May are so strong and so upsetting to me. This is an urgent message — that we spread the consecration and the rosary and the first Saturday devotions throughout the world and that we join in the Shepherds of Christ Movement, for He is giving to us such grace and magnifying all of our efforts. Who will He send if we say no?
Song: I Have Called You By Name
Song: Our Lady is Calling...
R. We see three little children and the Blessed Mother appeared to them at Fatima and we think that it is so far away — the message is the same message this day that Mary delivers for the completion of the Fatima message. Mary has called us in this Shepherds of Christ to help bring this about. We have been called as a big part of the completion of this message. God has chosen us in the Shepherds of Christ Movement to help to spread this consecration to the priests, to the brothers and Sisters, to the laity and to the children. This is indeed a great honor and Mary is with us. Our heavenly Mother, the same Mother that appeared at Fatima, is calling to us today to take this message to the world. (6 months later Mary appeared in Clearwater.)
R. I know more the suffering of those in hell — the glories of those in heaven. Do we know what it is to be embraced by a heavenly embrace, to have such union with the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, love God so much to know the craving within our soul, the greatest craving there is within us, that God put within us, the craving to know, to love and to serve God.
R. Heaven is to know this divine embrace from the Almighty God — to want to be satisfied — to be filled with love, to love all and to be in unity in such oneness with men and with the Almighty God. Heaven is to know love and hell is a place where there is hatred — to be isolated, to never know love. Hell is a place for all eternity in which there is no love, in which there is no community, in which everyone hates and for all eternity when our souls are united to our bodies to burn in the flames of hell. We can be united in this burning love of the Almighty God for all eternity, in this divine embrace, or we can burn for all eternity in the fires of hell. God came to save each and every soul and He shed His precious blood because He loved each and every soul. He is giving to us this great grace that we will unite in the deepest union with Him and as we offer each act of the day in union with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, immense grace is being release on this world that is in darkness. The light of the Almighty God will shine on this earth through the hearts that are consecrated to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary and the grace will flow as a burning fire across the earth as our hearts are consecrated and His grace is released through the sacrifice of the Mass.
R. We see the priest raise the consecrated host. We unite to the Masses going on all over this world at this moment — the bell tolls and an immense amount of grace is released. Let us unite in our actions to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, at every moment let the actions we perform be an offering, an act of giving our life for the sake of souls. Mary has told me over and over again of the souls that are dropping into hell like rain. The suffering and the pain from knowing this is very intense for it is so hard to see our heavenly Mother and to hear what she says and to know that this is happening, but it is such a delight to know that we have been called as special apostles and given great grace to spread the fire of His love across this earth.
R. Jesus gave me an immense vision and said that it is through Fr. Carter and this movement that the fire of His love will cover this earth and that many souls will know God. We must unite our hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.
R. We see Mary as the angel appeared to her and she is frightened and the angel said: do not be afraid Mary, the Father has a plan for you and the angel told Mary that she was to be the Mother of God. We see Mary crowned as Queen of heaven and earth. From the day we were born the Father has guarded and watched us. This is HIS plan — this is the plan of the Father. He created each one of us uniquely special, given us all the talents that we need to accomplish His work. It is through our hearts, united to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary that the plan of the Father will unfold and that the fire of God's love will spread across this earth.
R. How can I say no when God has called me?
R. How can I say no when I see the soul on the edge of death at this moment and our prayer here can help lead souls to heaven for all eternity. Think of the soul on the edge of death: it could be my mother, my sister, or my husband, or my grandmother — there is, on the edge of death at this moment, my sister and my brother in Christ and God is asking us to help this soul, by joining our hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary and uniting to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
Every act that we perform is a heroic act when we offer our lives united to the Mass as a sacrifice for souls. God has given to us a great mission. God gives us a sharing in His life. This world is suffering and in pain.
Song: May the angels lead you into paradise...
Song: Eye Has Not Seen, Ear has not heard...
Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman, robed with the sun, standing on the moon, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. Revelation 12: 1
R. Mary has called and Jesus has given us a special mission as apostles to go forth into this new era. It is when our hearts are united to Their Hearts that His life will flow through us in this world His light will touch others.
Jesus: I call you, My beloved ones, to let go of all hatred and anger in your hearts, for I am giving to you My love and My love will heal all the wounds within your hearts. Come to Me and I will give you My divine love.
Song: I Love You Jesus
Jesus: If you say, "no", whom will I send? You are My apostles that I am sending into the world. The world will shine through the love of God within your hearts.
