From the Apparition on June 5th, 2013

Clearwater, Florida

Jesus is Whipped at the Pillar

R. His flesh was torn, the blood flew in the air. Jesus whipped raw for the sins of men. Jesus, help us to place our trust in You. And help us to be like You, that we are trustworthy, that we are really working to please You, not too much, not too little, to do it the way You want us to do, that others will know that we are trying too, to do what You want us to do, that we can put our heads together, not be full of pride. We can work in love and accomplish so much through Your Might. Amen.

1. R. Did you ever see a street that was so covered with snow that it was just almost 8 feet high, and you know that you can't get out, and yet some how, some snowplow comes down that street, and you are not bound by that wall of snow, but you are free. Why do we bind ourselves up with fear? Fear of things that may never even happen. Why do we bind ourselves up with fear of people that God has called us to work with? Why are we untrustworthy, when it would be so easy to be trustworthy, and it causes division and heartache, and it blocks the will of God, and the helping of the Kingdom of God. We make are own big messes. If we look at the world and we see the decadence because of the evil in the world, is it not the commotion, the confusion, the division, the darkness, all the things that are of satan, when so many times it would be so easy for us to just do God's will. We choose the exact opposite in thinking that we are asserting are independency. Are any of us really independent? When God is the Creator and we are the creatures? Do we know that we are very vulnerable with are health and other situations? Shouldn't we just see ourselves as Mary did, as a little child of the Father and have His might behind us, rather than fighting against the people God has called us to work with, in our vocation?

Jesus: Peace I leave with you. My peace I give to you.

Mary: And Mary appears and she says I am the Queen of Peace. I am Our Lady of Clearwater. Let the water wash your hearts, my children. Let your hearts be made more and more pure, as you surrender to God and pray to my Spouse, the Holy Spirit to do His will. Do not add confusion because of rituals that you have planned in your own lives, but be free, to do as He wants you to do. No strings attached. Just free to say yes in a way, in which God will see your faithfulness, your trust, your love, your efforts, and He will bless your work. You want a blessing or a curse, for when God calls you, say 'yes' and be blessed by Him.

2. Song: Choose Life

3. R. And we see Jesus as the victim, He is whipped, His flesh is torn, and if we know we are following in His footsteps, we know that we too will be a victim. And so we know that there will be suffering in our lives from following Jesus. But if think we can get away with it, the guy that opposes God's will, has many, many sufferings in his life. And so we know that Jesus is the victim. And we know that Jesus could have stopped it all, but because of love of us He continued to the hill of Calvary, and He mounted the cross and He allowed His hands to be nailed. Think about how it is to be stripped of your clothes. Think of what they did to Jesus. They ripped His flesh. They took the blood out of His body. They stripped His clothes off of Him, they nailed His precious hands and feet to the cross, they raised Him high in ridicule before all others, they spit on Him, they mocked Him.

    You know how it is to love, when you really love somebody, and it's like you could almost do anything for them. We cannot even fathom the love that Jesus has for us, that He went through such torture and He says, "I would die for you alone this day. Tell them that Rita." I remember in 1994, it was in March, I think it was the 20th of March, of 1994, I remember all these things because He spoke to me. And I was at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center, and He said 'tell everybody that you meet that I would die for them alone today, that I love them so much'. Jesus is a Person. He is our best friend. He wants us to be His instruments in the world, that He will operate through us, that He will touch souls, and He would give us great grace to grow ever more in our life in Him. He wants us with Him for all eternity in the deepest intimate love. Jesus we place our trust in You. Help us in this rosary to receive the grace to let fear in our lives, that takes us away from doing what You want us to do, to diminish more and more, that our courage, that our strength is in You in our union with You. Amen.

4. And Jesus says sing: Be Not Afraid

5. R. The Sacred Heart of Jesus is really our focus in the Shepherds of Christ and the beauty of it is, that His Heart is seen outside of His chest,  that He opened Himself so much in His bitter passion, that the blood from within His body came forth, that the wrenching pain in His arms and His legs was more than we could ever imagine, even though we saw the scars and the nicks on the outside. But He doesn't want us to miss the fact that the mission of the Shepherds of Christ, is a mission to spread the good news of His love to the world and so He shows us His Heart on the outside of His chest. And many pictures of the Sacred Heart His hands are pointed toward that Heart – that isn't enough, and it's on fire and it has thorns around it, showing us how He gave His all for us, and the pierced mark in His Heart.

    You know through the side of Adam, God took Eve. From the pierced side of Christ, the Church was born – water for baptism, and blood for the Eucharist. Jesus shed His blood, the last drop, for love of you and me. Help us dear God to love others, to love You in return and to know how much You love us, that we are not afraid, but that we are going to go out like You want us to, and to be focused on giving love to You and to others. As we grow in the spiritual life, Fr. Carter said, that the focus becomes more that love given to God and given to others, more selflessness, in losing that self-centeredness. For isn't that how it is, we kind of grow older and not look as good, and so we see we can't move as good, and we can't do this and yet, but our hearts, our hearts are excelling to be ready for that heavenly reward, just glorious.

6. R. In the Hail Mary, we pay in the rosary 53 times, at the end of that Hail Mary, we pray about death. Let's pray and listen, because He knows that we will be afraid. It's walking into the unknown, but is it really unknown, if we really love and trust Him, and we are ready to say we are sorry when we do some things that we do that we know offends God and hurts others. God wants us to have relationship. Relationship means that we don't act like we didn't do something wrong when we did. We want to have relationship, and so we make up and we work with each other, because that's His way. Look at how He did what He did to work with us.

7. Jesus: In lavishing love I give to you Myself in the Eucharist. I love you, I love you, I love you. My precious soul, spend your days united to the Mass, in everything that you do, in your joys, in your suffering, in your resting, in your sleeping, in your eating, in your working, in your talking to others, know that every moment of your life is important to Me, united to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, to help to bring down grace through out the world. Do all that you do, to please your Heavenly Father, and you will live happy lives. You will have happy hearts and you will be at peace.

8. Jesus: Being witnesses of the truth, I am the way, the truth and the life. I am Jesus, your Savior.

9. Song: A Song from Jesus

10. Song: God's Love

 

The Crowning with Thorns

Jesus: And I come to you this day, and My Heart is on fire for love of My precious souls. So many reject Me, but so many will be lost. And My Mother has appeared all these years, crying out for her precious children. Will you say no to God who sent Mary here, to Clearwater, that you will tell the pilgrims that come, how important these prayers are. They are important to Me, to My Sacred Heart. Great graces will be released on the souls of the earth, on the priests, the Church and the world, when you pray the prayers as I directed Fr. Carter. Spread the prayers, spread them in chapels, in families, with the statues. Do not let one rock be unturned, for you will know a different world, as you listen to the messages that I have given to you. I am Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the Flock.

1. Jesus: I speak of love here and in the writings in the Blue Books, and the world is becoming more and more cold. As you circulate the Blue Books and as people go more and more to the Eucharist, they will be filled with the warmth of My Heart, and the world will become warmer and warmer as you spread this devotion to My Most Sacred Heart on fire for love of men. I am Jesus, the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

2. Jesus: My light is the light that is too mighty to be contained.

3. Jesus: For you have been called to a unique vocation, each and every one of you. Do not be in competition, but realize that as you work together that you will help enormously in the building of My Kingdom, and when you are gone, that love that you gave will be as ripples on a pond, that goes on and on and on, bearing fruit for the Kingdom and you will be in My lavish embrace.

4. Jesus: Who is the King on your throne? Many times it is the ego. Many times it is selfishness. Many times it is fear. It is the reason for why you are acting, many times. And it is something that is limiting you, for it can become a very bad habit. Keep your focus on My Sacred Heart. Keep your focus on always serving the Father. Keep your focus on loving God and others. Reach out, look out, go out. Spend your lives, spend them. Do not go backward and hoard them against the Father's will.

5. Jesus: In lavishing love, I opened up My Heart and I showed My messenger the picture of the white heat of My love. You cannot even comprehend the enormous love that I have for you, but I ask you today, to pray for an increase in trusting in My Heart.

6. R. Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, help us to trust You.

7. Song: I Am Your Sacred Heart

8. Song: I Rocked Him as a Baby

Mary: And I call you to see through my eyes, for I stood beneath the cross of my Son, and my heart was in such anguish for the little ones, that would be lost forever. And I have given to you the writings and the rosaries, in the Blue Book 8 - See Through my Eyes. As you use this book, you will see more and more, my Son Jesus and the plan of the Father, You will live more and more in my Immaculate Heart and you will be more my little children, my little children of light. I am Mary, your Mother, the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Tell the world of this book, that they will see through my eyes, and that they will know more and more, the truth of Jesus.

9. Mary: When the night comes you may be afraid sometimes, for in the darkness there is a sense of not being able to see. And yet think of how it is to live in the darkness, how many of my little children, living in the darkness, day after day after day, never escaping that darkness of their own making, as they give in more and more to the world, and as they become darker and darker, in their lives – how would it be for you to be locked in the darkness, to live your life in the darkness, for seeking to be stimulated by something that could take you from the darkness – and yet not moving from the darkness. Jesus has given to you the Blue Books to spread to the people of this earth, that they will know that life is in Him, that they can be filled with His life more and more, as they are baptized and they go to the Eucharist. The power, my children, is in the Eucharist. The Mighty Medicine for the sick world is in the Eucharist. His life, filling you more and more abundantly, comes as you go to the Eucharist. I am Mary and I appear here to tell you, that you will be children of beauty and light, more and more as you go to my Son Jesus in the Eucharist. This is the Father's gift for you, as you live the Mass in your lives, as you unite to the Sacrifice of Jesus offered to the Father, the Father is well pleased with this sacrifice and He blesses the earth. He outpours His grace. He is filled with love for you, my children. Hear me.

10. R. And we pray for healing, for all that healing that we prayed for before, we pray for the people we promised to pray for, for the ones that have asked us to pray for them, we pray for our own families, and for ourselves and we pray for Dan and Melanie, and Don. Pray for Tom and the people that he wanted us to pray for. Pray for Gary, and really pray with the faith that God will hear these prayers and that He will grant great healing graces, for Jerry's mom. And then we don't forget like the lepers, to thank Him for the gifts that He has given. We want to thank God for this healing that Dan had, and thank God for Jerry's mom for being the way that she is, and thank God for all the graces that He has given to people, and the healings because of the waters or the prayer services. And we want to pray for more grace and healing that people will really spread this message that God has given to us. We pray for the grace that we will be able to work with those people God has called us to work with, in unity, not in competition and jealousy and envy, but to just love Jesus the way He wants to be loved, to know that this is reality, that this is real that God really, really wants our love in return. He really, really wants us to give to the Eucharist. He wants us to be united. He loves the souls and He wants us to offer up the simplest mundane thing that we do united to the Mass, if it is the Father's will, to help the world to be the way that God wants it to be.

    We look at the quiet life of Jesus, and we can identify in our lives with those times where we are quiet in our life. Jesus worked all those miracles and He had His public life and He did all His teachings, but He had that quiet life. And it is through His life, death and resurrection that this grace came, and that includes the quiet life, and that includes the quiet life in our lives, that He outpours grace if we are doing God's will. We are suppose to rest, we are not suppose to wind ourselves up. We can be addicted to excitement, addicted to fear, addicted to misery, addicted to all these things, that are negative emotions, where satan can operate us, control us and stop us, from being people of peace, people of unity, people of being satisfied when things are calm, as God wants them to be. In Him things will work for the good.

Glory Be

 

 

Foreward

Dear Father,

    I give my heart to Jesus and Mary with you in love. In the world today it is good for us to remember, what our founder, Fr. Carter said, the individual Christian, the Church and the world is in the state of becoming.

Priestly Writing and Prayers

    In 18 years of this Movement we have sent loose and in books, over 17,000,000 Priestly Newsletters to priests and hierarchy. We have prayer chapters praying for the priests, the Church and the world all over the world (found in the backs of this book and most of our books), on a page brochure we enclosed in previous mailings. This is a network of prayer in 8 languages around the world. We believe these prayer chapters, many 18 years old, can be a network of prayer praying for the priests, the Church and the world, giving great devotion to the Sacred Heart and Immaculate Heart, now, and in the future when we are gone.

    We pray 24 hours a day before the exposed Eucharist in China, Indiana for you and all your work in helping the Church to be what God wants it to be in all its members. (picture enclosed on rear inside cover) We love the Church, the pillar of truth, and we give our lives living, in recognition of this calling, to pray for the Church and the world and for all our priests and to circulate these writings on the spiritual life.

 

The Word

    It is exciting to me, Rita Ring, co-founder of Shepherds of Christ, to read Fr. Joe’s homilies (my brother) and my love of the Word grows ever more and more. We want the Word to live in us. It is a two-edged sword. The Word in our hearts aiding us in making our contribution in helping to build the Kingdom using the unique God-given talents God gave us.

 

The Father’s Family

    God is our Creator, we were created uniquely with a purpose to make our unique contribution to the building of the Father’s family. Living in love as brothers and sisters and realizing we are to contribute in helping to make the Church and the world more as God intends.

 

Our Christ Life and Our Mission

    In the sacrament of baptism, we receive a sharing in His life. We are to grow in this Christ-life making the contribution God wants as we live more deeply in Him.

    We sing the song Seek Ye First the Kingdom of God.

    I wrote the song Glory, Glory, Glory Lord and A Priest is a Gift from God.

    We are so thankful for all you do.

    We are so thankful for all our priests.

    Fr. Carter, S. J. Doctorate, founder of the Shepherds of Christ, believed he was called by God in this mission to send the Priestly Writings. Fr. Carter said Jesus told him to pray these particular prayers and begin these prayer chapters around the world, praying for the priests, the Church and the world. We have begun these prayer chapters for over 18 years now since 1994.

 

The Mass

    We as members of the mystical body of Christ can help in being united to the Mass with pure hearts – all day – offering up our every day works, serving God according to His will in love. It is in the interior offering in our hearts that we want to be pure, holy, loving and following in Jesus’ footsteps – in all we do – united to the Masses going on around the world – praying for grace to be outpoured for our priests, the Church and the world.

    God is love and we are to pray in love for our brothers and sisters of the world, relying on God’s Might.

    The Mass is the sacrifice of Calvary sacramentally made present – a fountain of grace being poured out on us hungry, hungry souls. We adore God, we thank God, we petition God for grace for the Church and the world and we want to help make reparation for our sins and the sins of the world.

 

Consecration to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary

    We give ourselves in Consecration to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary and we pray to God to help us grow in our graced life until we are with Him wrapped in His embrace for all eternity.

    Please help us spread these prayer chapters praying for the priests, the Church and the world and giving great devotion to the Pure and Holy Hearts of Love of Jesus and Mary.

 

The Father’s Plan – Love

    I heard a song once, it said “What the world needs now is love.” The Plan of the Father is that we love God with our whole heart, our whole soul and our whole being and that we love our neighbor as ourselves.

    God is love. God first loved us. It is our response to God’s love.

    Man is made in the image and likeness of God, so we are to love!

    Happiness is found in God.

    Spread the Good News, Jesus has died, He has risen and this is our call in this life – to love – to pray for the priests, the Church and the world.

 

Homilies from Fr. Joe, My Brother

    I, with all of us at Shepherds of Christ, pray that you, God’s holy chosen one, will be blessed. This sixth book of homilies from Fr. Joe Robinson, my brother, is a cherished gift he has allowed us to send to you.

    Sincerely and with much love in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary,

Rita Robinson Ring, Co-founder
Shepherds of Christ Ministries

 

John Weickert, our President, has given much to make this happen and all our faithful people, Servantsand Handmaids of the Good Shepherd and Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus and Associates of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

 

 

Jesus is Life

     Jesus tells us

John 6: 48-51

I am the bread of life.
Your fathers ate manna in the desert
and they are dead;
but this is the bread
   which comes down from heaven,
so that a person may eat it and not die.
I am the living bread
   which has come down from heaven.
Anyone who eats this bread
   will live for ever;
and the bread that I shall give
is my flesh, for the life of the world.'
 

     John 14:6  I am the Way; I am Truth and Life…

 

    We live out His life, death and resurrection in our lives – Jesus is the bread of life. Jesus gives us Himself in the Eucharist. Jesus gives us His Word. We are living in the world with a purpose: God has created us and we are to die to those ways, not likened to Him and come forth living that life of resurrection in our lives. Baptism gives us a sharing in His life – In baptism our knowing and loving capacity is elevated. We have this capacity. We have been commanded in the greatest commandment to love God with all our hearts and love our neighbor as ourselves.

    Fr. Carter says in Response in Christ “As we progress, we hope to show in detail that Christian holiness is life in Christ, for our life in Christ contains everything – our love of God, our love of men, our love of all creation.

    We hope to portray the Christian as one who believes from the depths of his being that to live is Christ... “Man rejected this self-communication of God in original sin. Yet God’s desire to give Himself to man was not withdrawn. He determined to save man from his sinfulness, and thereafter the divine communication centered around the promised Redeemer.” Life is not life if it is not rooted in God.

    Satan has pressed on man from the beginning in disobedience to a good God, a generous God, the Almighty and All Powerful and All Just. Satan wants this culture of death.

    We live out the mystery of Christ in our lives. A constant dying to those ways not like Christ. Dying to vices and not giving into the deadly sins of seeking dominance for dominance sake, greed, pride, anger, envy, lust, jealousness, slothfulness. We rise to new life in Him – Our Christ-life – Our life in Jesus. Life in the Spirit. Life, Life, Life! Life is in Him.

    This book, like Response in Christ tells us about life! Living in Christ – Dying to the selfish ways of the wounded human nature – God and His rules are first in our lives – We live to please our heavenly Father - to do His will – This is why we act – we operate in Him, our beloved God – We live in the Heart of Jesus - a Heart on fire for love of man.

    The Father, Son and Holy Spirit dwell in our graced, baptized soul – We beg God to increase in us the virtues of faith, hope and love.

    We go into the tomb at every Mass and die more and more to our selfish sinful ways to live more the life of resurrection in Him. In the Prayer before the Mass we pray with lavishing love to God – The greatest gift we can give to God is our obedience and love to Him.

 

A Prayer before the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass

    Let me be a holy sacrifice and unite with God in the sacrament of His greatest love.

    I want to be one in Him in this act of love, where He gives Himself to me and I give myself as a sacrifice to Him. Let me be a holy sacrifice as I become one with Him in this my act of greatest love to Him.

    Let me unite with Him more, that I may more deeply love Him. May I help make reparation to His adorable Heart and the heart of His Mother, Mary. With greatest love, I offer myself to You and pray that You will accept my sacrifice of greatest love. I give myself to You and unite in Your gift of Yourself to me. Come and possess my soul.

    Cleanse me, strengthen me, heal me. Dear Holy Spirit act in the heart of Mary to make me more and more like Jesus.

    Father, I offer this my sacrifice, myself united to Jesus in the Holy Spirit to You. Help me to love God more deeply in this act of my greatest love.

    Give me the grace to grow in my knowledge, love and service of You and for this to be my greatest participation in the Mass. Give me the greatest graces to love You so deeply in this Mass, You who are so worthy of my love.                                              - Mass Book, December 27, 1995

 
 
 
 

    At every Mass – we pray in the beginning to be forgiven for our venial sins, to be cleansed –

    We receive the Bread of Life – We listen to the Word – we are fed we eat His Body – we are fed – We are one in the Consecration – Praying to the Father united to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. We unite to Jesus in the Holy Spirit through the intercession of the Virgin Mary, with all the angels and saints and souls in purgatory, we pray.

    We are one – begging for grace to be outpoured on this sinful world – We tell God we are so sorry for our sins and the sins of this world – I cry in my heart begging to God to hear My prayer –

    I wrote the Mass Book for this – To tell the world about God and this intimate love union God wants with us – Come to me Lord and Possess my Soul.

 

Prayer for Union with Jesus

Come to me, Lord, and possess my soul. Come into my heart and permeate my soul. Help me to sit in silence with You and let You work in my heart.

    I am Yours to possess. I am Yours to use. I want to be selfless and only exist in You. Help me to spoon out all that is me and be an empty vessel ready to be filled by You. Help me to die to myself and live only for You. Use me as You will. Let me never draw my attention back to myself. I only want to operate as You do, dwelling within me.

    I am Yours, Lord. I want to have my life in You. I want to do the will of the Father. Give me the strength to put aside the world and let You operate my very being. Help me to act as You desire. Strengthen me against the distractions of the devil to take me from Your work.

    When I worry, I have taken my focus off of You and placed it on myself. Help me not to give in to the promptings of others to change what in my heart You are making very clear to me. I worship You, I adore You and I love You. Come and dwell in me now.   - God's Blue Book, January 17, 1994

 

A Prayer for Intimacy with the Lamb, the Bridegroom of the Soul

     Oh Lamb of God, Who take away the sins of the world, come and act on my soul most intimately. I surrender myself, as I ask for the grace to let go, to just be as I exist in You and You act most intimately on my soul. You are the Initiator. I am the soul waiting Your favors as You act in me. I love You. I adore You. I worship You. Come and possess my soul with Your Divine Grace, as I experience You most intimately.
 

    So in this culture of death – we know as members of the mystical body of Christ we are united to all the Masses going on around the world – The Mass the sacrifice of Calvary sacramentally made present – We say our Morning Offering – We give ourselves in total consecration to God – Our lives, all we do, united to the Mass.

                                                                   (this we use extensively, nursing homes etc.)

     Here we have consecrations for children.

   

     We are united ever deeper to each other as members of the mystical body of Christ, by offering ourselves, united to the Mass in everything we do praying to the Father, in the Holy Spirit through the intercession of Mary our Mother with all the angels and saints and the souls in purgatory.

     The Eucharist is the Mighty Medicine – God wants our love. We need adoration chapels all over the world praying for these things.

     Fr. Carter, S.J. said Jesus gave him a message to have Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus.
People spend at least 2 separate hours a week before the Blessed Sacrament praying for these 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.
 

    Fr. Carter said Jesus told him on July 31, 1994 to pray these prayers in prayer chapters all over the world. We have them in 8 languages.

    To combat the fear of death – we say the rosary and pray 53 Hail Marys saying – “pray for us now and at the hour of death”

    Fr. Carter prayed the 7 sorrows after every rosary. He saw himself as a baby in Mary’s arms – When he died he had a holy card of the baby Jesus in the arms of Mary clenched in his hand.

    In the Shepherds of Christ prayers he put before the 7 sorrows – “Mary has promised very special graces to those who do this on a daily basis. Included in the promises of Our Lady for those who practice this devotion is her pledge to give special assistance at the hour of death, including the sight of her face.”

    Then in the prayers we pray the promises to St. Margaret Mary and we thank Jesus after every promise.

    The last promise says “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.”

    WOW! Jesus promises if we make the 9 First Fridays we will not die without receiving their sacraments; and His Divine Heart shall be our safe refuge in this moment.

    Fear of death – God gives us so many gifts. What a gift this is - dying in the arms of Jesus and Mary – I am praying the Seven Sorrows every day – I knew of death, my mom and Fr. Joe’s mom, died when I was 5 years old. Response in Christ – Living in Him. Going into the tomb and dying to our ways not likened to God.

    Preparing ourselves for the beatific vision – Living deeply knowing God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit dwell in our graced baptized soul – Knowing God more and more deeply dwelling in us.

    Jesus is truly present in the Blessed Sacrament in His Divinity and humanity – no less present than when He walked the earth –

    Come to me Lord and Possess my Soul –

    The mission Fr. Carter wanted in the Priestly Newsletters was to get out the message that we go to the Heart of Mary, our spiritual womb and the Holy Spirit works to mold us more and more into the image and likeness of God. Here is a reflection from Fr. Carter.

 

Reflection: The Holy Spirit is given to us to fashion us ever more according to the likeness of Jesus. And the more we are like Jesus, the more Jesus leads us to the Father. Do we, each day, pray to the Holy Spirit to be more open to His transforming influence? Do we strive each day to grow in union with Mary? The greater our union with our Mother, the spouse of the Holy Spirit, the greater is the transforming action of the Holy Spirit within us.          From Tell My People

  

     Here is what Bishop Martinez says –  
 

The Holy Spirit and Mary

The late Archbishop Luis M. Martinez of Mexico strikingly speaks of the ongoing cooperation of Mary with the Holy Spirit regarding the reproduction of Jesus within us: "Christian life is the reproduction of Jesus in souls…

"Now, how will this mystical reproduction be brought about in souls? In the same way in which Jesus was brought into the world, for God gives a wonderful mark of unity to all His works. Divine acts have a wealth of variety because they are the work of omnipotence; nevertheless, a most perfect unity always shines forth from them because they are the fruit of wisdom; and this divine contrast of unity and variety stamps the works of God with sublime and unutterable beauty.

"In His miraculous birth, Jesus was the fruit of heaven and earth…The Holy Spirit conveyed the divine fruitfulness of the Father to Mary, and the virginal soil brought forth in an ineffable manner our most loving Savior, the divine Seed, as the prophets called Him…

"That is the way He is reproduced in souls. He is always the fruit of heaven and earth.

"Two artisans must concur in the work that is at once God’s masterpiece and humanity’s supreme product: the Holy Spirit and the most holy Virgin Mary. Two sanctifiers are necessary to souls, the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary, for they are the only ones who can reproduce Christ.

"Undoubtedly, the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary sanctify us in different ways. The first is the Sanctifier by essence; because He is God, who is infinite sanctity; because He is the personal Love that completes, so to speak, the sanctity of God, consummating His life and His unity, and it belongs to Him to communicate to souls the mystery of that sanctity. The Virgin Mary, for her part, is the co-operator, the indispensable instrument in and by God’s design. From Mary’s maternal relation to the human body of Christ is derived her relation to His Mystical Body which is being formed through all the centuries until the end of time, when it will be lifted up to the heavens, beautiful, splendid, complete, and glorious.

"These two, then, the Holy Spirit and Mary, are the indispensable artificers of Jesus, the indispensable sanctifiers of souls. Any saint in heaven can co-operate in the sanctification of a soul, but his co-operation is not necessary, not profound, not constant: while the co-operation of these two artisans of Jesus of whom we have just been speaking is so necessary that without it souls are not sanctified (and this by the actual design of Providence), and so intimate that it reaches to the very depths of our soul. For the Holy Spirit pours charity into our heart, makes a habitation of our soul, and directs our spiritual life by means of His gifts. The Virgin Mary has the efficacious influence of Mediatrix in the most profound and delicate operations of grace in our souls. And, finally, the action of the Holy Spirit and the co-operation of the most holy Virgin Mary are constant; without them, not one single character of Jesus would be traced on our souls, no virtue grow, no gift be developed, no grace increased, no bond of union with God be strengthened in the rich flowering of the spiritual life.

"Such is the place that the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary have in the order of sanctification. Therefore, Christian piety should put these two artisans of Christ in their true place, making devotion to them something necessary, profound, and constant."         The Sanctifier, op. cit. pp. 5-7.

 
 

So in summation – I see Fr. Carter when he did his doctorate on the Sacred Heart outlined much of what he said Jesus told him to do in the Shepherds of Christ in circulating over 17,000,000 Priestly Newsletters, loose and in books, to priests and hierarchy in these 18 years we have existed.

We circulated my brother’s book of homilies – 5 times now – last year to the Pope and all the Cardinals in the world and all the priests and Bishops of the United States. (at least 40,000 of Fr. Joe’s book last year to priests and hierarchy) His book is centered on the bread of life – on the Word and the Eucharist.

     John 11:25  I am the resurrection and the life.

     Response in Christ

     Praying the Shepherds of Christ Prayers in the tri-fold paper for the priests, the Church and the world in 8 languages with the Imprimatur.

     Mary said at Fatima until a sufficient number of people have consecrated their hearts to Jesus and Mary we won't have peace in the world. Mary said at Fatima: Bishops need to consecrate their dioceses to the Sacred Heart and Immaculate Heart - putting pictures of Jesus, the Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, in their homes, businesses, Churches where Jesus is the King and Center of their hearts.

     To have the vision of the heavenly Father for each one of us – each one of us uniquely created for a purpose to contribute to the Plan of the Father in salvation history – We need adoration chapels around the world - praying for these things – 

    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.

 

     Please help us circulate these prayers and materials praying for the priests, the Church and the world.

Carrying of the Cross

    2. Why do you think you should not suffer?
    3. My Blood was red, My Heart is a symbol of My great love.
    4. My walk to Calvary was painful.
    5. I paid the price for the sins of today.
    6. Do you have to go with the world? Quit watching the filthy movies and the dirt on television.
    7. It hurts My Heart to see you won't take a stand for Me.
    8. Don't visit places where people are sinning. It hurts My Heart that you do that.
    9. My Heart bleeds when you say yes when you mean no, and no when you mean yes. Don't confuse matters, that is from Satan. Tell the truth.
    10. I called you to be an Apostle of My Sacred Heart. Will you serve Me?

 

Crucifixion

    Jesus:

    1. My dear soul, I love you to say to Me when receiving the Eucharist, "I scarce can breathe when You come into Me."
    2. My dear soul, I do love you so, so much, see My red Blood shed for you.
    3. My dear soul, see My bleeding hands and feet.
    4. My dear soul, look at the crucifix.
    5. My dear soul, the most important thing you do everyday is going to Mass and receiving Me.
    6. My dear soul, tell others of the gift of Myself in the Eucharist.
    7. My dear soul, do you like favors, ice cream, candy? My dear soul, I give you Myself, I am the Son of God.
    8. My dear soul, during this month of the Sacred Heart, pray this rosary, look at My red rosary, think of My drops of Blood. Oh My soul, it is Blood I shed for you.

 

 

    9. Unite to the Mass at every moment. Feel united as a body.

    10. My dear soul, My Mass is a gift I give to you. Love your priests, pray for them, the Church and the world. Oh My dear soul, the more you do for Me the more you will unite to Me. I am the Chief Shepherd of the Flock, I give My prayers to you. I will give the greatest graces to anyone who says My prayers and promotes My prayers. Churches that have prayer chapters, even small, will experience the greatest grace. They will turn into little cities of light, run by Me to give honor to Me and devotion to My Eucharistic Heart. I will bless abundantly all churches which have prayer chapters. In this month of June, the month of My Sacred Heart, I implore you to spread My prayer chapters. This is My plan to help enormously to renew the Church and the world.

I am Jesus Christ, the Son of God, Chief Shepherd of the Flock. My Heart is on fire for love of you, I loved you to My death on the cross. What did I think of on the cross? I thought of you. I knew you by name, I gave Myself as a sacrifice for you. Oh I love you, I am the Sacred Heart, I love you so much. My Heart is a burning furnace of love.

Healings

from

The Building of the Two Hearts

1. Newborn very sick - 2 lbs. My mother came to visit me. We used to live in the post apartments by Target. I brought my Mother to the Virgin Mary Building in Clearwater and she prayed for my niece, who was in Guatemala. When my Mother returned to Guatemala she took the picture of Virgin Mary and put it in my niece's room. When my niece was born, she needed a tube feeding. She couldn't eat on her own. She was very thin and very sick. Many people told my sister and my mother (including the doctors) that my niece was so sick that she probably would died. Thank to our Lady Virgin Mary, my niece is a healthy gifted 9 year old girl. - Guatemala - Healing was at 6 months old. 11-22-2005

2. After using the Jesus water, pain and non-movement (for 3 years) in my fingers was healed instantly. Now fingers are cracking and working and no pain. Has taken x-rays. 10-19-2008

3. Ruptured ACL Ligament and PCL ligament left leg (knee) and damaged meniscus. 3-4 weeks excruciating pain. MRI showed damaged ligaments - went to do surgery and scopes revealed no damage other than meniscus injury. Day before surgery we came here to pray for healing. Wife anointed knee with Jesus water. Were told prior to surgery that would be out of work 3-6 months and surgery would be 4 hours. Surgery was only 40 minutes and recovery time is 1-2 weeks.  8/13/2008

4. My husband had a good friend and he was diagnosed with cancer and given less than a few weeks to live. Jesus told me to take him the Jesus water. I never really met him, but I went to the hospital. He was so sick. He bounced up and said I knew it - I will be healed. And he lived over two years longer.

5. I just wanted to tell you we have had so many prayers answered most especially since we have had the image statue in our home a few months ago. Prayers being miraculously answered for our children & grandchildren, our daughter's heart has literally almost healed ... she is also pregnant and that is also a miracle that she carried the baby this far, she is so thankful and also her cardiologist can't figure out how she is doing so well, and even agreed with her it must be prayers being said for her. He also told her in her 4th month to abort the baby, maybe he will have a conversion, we hope. Others in my family have changed since we got the statue. They are more understanding and patient and love being a Catholic more than ever before ...We thank Jesus, Mary, Rita and you all. Praise all of heaven. We are also so eager to have many more prayers answered. We are giving our married children a 10 inch statue each for their homes and red prayer manual if they would also like to say the prayers if they so choose to. The statue we know will help them with many graces as they pray before it as it has helped us in our home and lives. Love you all.  8/3/2007

6. I must admit that some days I forget to wash in the water. But I have felt the same feeling once again a few days ago as I did on March 2nd, the first time I applied it to my knees. On the movie that you took, I am walking on the beach without a cane. I don't know if you noticed. I didn't use the cane yesterday, and I have no pain. I'm still slow at climbing the stairs, but I'm seeing a tremendous improvement. I'll keep a journal, and continue updating you I pray a lot, as I'm applying the medicine. Part of my prayer is "If it be your will." Thank you. I'll be in touch soon. 3/11/2005

7. My mother was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia in April 2005. She received the Jesus water of Clearwater that my brother brought to El Salvador. She was treated at Instituto Salvadoreno del Segino Social. She was expected to live 3-6 months. She lived well for 2 years. Now she rests in peace with Lord Jesus and Virgin Mary. She died of Pneumonia March 21, 2007.  4/27/2007

8. The CAT scan showed a dark spot and they thought they would have to remove my right kidney. My family went to the Blessed Mother and asked for prayers and help. They also got the healing water. Well all our prayers were answered. There was no cancer or tumor. Thanks for all your prayers and help, and thanks to the Lord above.  4/18/2007

9. Knees were injured from motorcycle accident July/August 2006. His mom got the water in Florida right after the accident and took it to him and he used it every day and now his knees are completely healed. He knows Jesus water did it. 1/9/2007

10. Suspected blood clot. Pain in leg with swelling. Jesus water was used and pain went away and swelling. 12/31/2006

11. Barretrs — My husband brought Jesus water to hospital and put on my stomach. Biopsy came back fine.  12/27/06

12. A man from South Carolina came to thank Jesus and Mary for his healing. His brother sent him Jesus' water when he was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Three doctors told him there was nothing they could do for him. He started using Jesus' water and started feeling better (He could hardly walk, he was using a wheelchair a lot). He went back to the doctor and tests showed no more cancer — gone! The doctor told him he never saw this happen before. He is around 70 years old and walks and feels normal.   2006

13. Flu. Both sitting in car, praying rosary both sick of flu. He very sick, not getting better. Both used the water, felt pain leave body, didn't say anything, but after few minutes he said "I feel pain is gone." They drove back to tell us that they were healed. 4/18/2005

14. Asthma. Put Jesus water on neck. Breathing much better. 4/17/2005

15. Severe back pain. Have a bad back from laying brick for years and sometimes I bend over and the pain is severe and it takes at least 3 or 4 or more weeks for it to go away. I put Jesus water on it and it went away in 2 days. Alleluia.  4/16/2005

16. A year ago he went to Orlando for a test on his prostate. It was positive. He came here in May and got some Jesus water out of the trough. He went back to the doctor and he was healed. - Venezuela  8/25/2006

17. My daughter was told she had thyroid cancer, after having one side of the thyroid removed they found the cancer was gone. This had to be due to Mary and Jesus Water and her belief in the Mother and Son.  9/17/2005

18. Peter was operated on for cancer he had for 10 years on his leg and because the wound was so big, they had to take some skin from another part of his leg to be able to fix it but it did split. So Monday the doctor said that another surgery was needed but thanks to Jesus water on Wednesday on that same week he was healed. - Argentina   7/2/2006

19. Cancer of the lungs. A friend of ours who we visit from Canada. He told us of his illness and we came and prayed at the Virgin Mary's appearance on March 28, 2006. He had Jesus' water put on him the night before his surgery. His surgery was on March 31 and the cancer was gone. Thank you for your blessings.  4/2/2006

20. Lower back muscle strain. After straining my back I used the Jesus water before using pain crème. After putting on the water I no longer needed the crème. The strain was gone.  3/16/2006

21. Neuropathy. He had gotten Jesus water a few days ago and went to the doctor yesterday.  3/15/2006

22. Heart failure. He was not breathing. Jesus water was poured on him while praying. He started breathing again. 4/23/2005

23. Pregnancy. Became pregnant of twin girls after we prayed in 2005 and even have a statue of the Virgin Mary in our yard. After 15 years of concubinage Virgin Mary finally blessed us. Thanks. Thanks. Thanks. Jesus water was used to help conceive. 2/2/2006

24. A woman came in today from New York and said she was here last March (2005) and got the Jesus water. Her cousin who was very healthy and had just retired at age 60 suffered a massive stroke. He was taken to the best neurological hospital in New York and the doctors said he had no chance of recovery. He had a blood clot at the base of his brain stem. He was in intensive care and the woman with the other family members were visiting him and she put Jesus water on him and they prayed over him, while he was laying in bed in a fetal position unable to talk was paralyzed. After she had left (only 30 minutes of visitation in Intensive Care) the woman received a call from her cousin's wife saying the man had sat up in bed after they left and was miraculously healed. He is back at home now. The doctors came in and said this was a miracle. This was 2 months ago.  1/24/2006

Guiding Light - Reflect on the Word
Inspiring Homilies Covering Cycle B of the Liturgical Year
$ 15.00 plus postage

Guiding Light homily series - Reflect on the Word - Cycle B —  The Word leaves an impression on our souls. In my thoughts and reflections are born a more tangible understanding of these eternal concepts presented in the Gospels and the readings. Anyone can read a sentence, but not anyone can absorb it's true meaning. Truth, in this day and age, is almost a matter of opinion or individual entitlement. We believe that Christ's truth is our Roman Catholic Church. We, as priests, champion it's teachings; we are ambassadors for the Pope and Christ to those faces looking at us. We are the light by which our congregation reads to reflect upon real truth and we do it hand in hand. $15

Guiding Light - Steadfast to the Son
Inspiring Homilies Covering Cycle A of the Liturgical Year
$ 15.00 plus postage

Guiding Light homily series - Steadfast to the Son - Cycle A — The sunflower is a great example of how we should be steadfastly guided by light. What a powerful thought that this exceptional plant is not stuck in one pose day in and day out, yet adaptable and magnetized to the sun. We feel the same about our Son. Our heads turns to face Christ as each day presents its challenges to find light. We join together like plants in a field and soak up the Son through the pulpit. We are a warm circle of strength using the wind of our breath to carry our priests' words, Christ's words, to new rich soil. $15

Guiding Light - Feed My Soul
Inspiring Homilies Covering Cycle C of the Liturgical Year
$ 15.00 plus postage

Guiding Light - Feed My Soul - Cycle C — In a world rapidly advancing and encouraging personal gain, we are faced with modern problems. There is a challenge to find time in our busy schedules for Sunday Mass or a family meal. We are able to research, shop, bank and even work without hearing one human voice. It is no wonder that we may often feel disconnected and famished at our week's end. In Fr. Joe's third book of homilies from Cycle C, we are reminded of the charity that Christ intended us to show each other. We have a calling to turn the other cheek and be the Good Samaritan to others. We are rewarded with the Father's kingdom and love when we are not worthy. We are not left alone or hungry. $15

Guiding Light - Focusing on the Word
Inspiring Homilies Covering Cycle B of the Liturgical Year
$ 15.00 plus postage

Guiding Light - Focusing on the Word - Cycle B — At times we may feel that our path to Christ is a bit "out of focus". Like the disciples in the Book of Mark, this ordinary life clouds our vision of Christ's Divinity. We may doubt the practicality or possibility of applying His teachings and example to our modern life. Cycle B's homilies are a "guiding light" to help us realize Jesus' Messianic greatness and His promise of better things to come. $15

$ 10.00  plus postage

Priestly Newsletter - 2000 #1 - CD. - Christ is Our Strength - Fr. Edward Carter, S.J. read it the year he died. It is so beautiful. "This brief passage contains one of the greatest lessons of the spiritual life. As we progress along our spiritual journey, we become increasingly aware of how weak we are in our-selves, but how strong we are in Christ. To experience our weakness involves suffering. The degree and kind of suffering can vary. The suffering can include the experience of the classical dark night of the spirit as described by St. John of the Cross. One of the main purposes of the dark night is to make a person keenly aware of his or her helplessness without God." quote by Fr. Carter from the newsletter $10

Priestly Newsletter - 2000 #2 - CD. - Suffering: A Source of Life - Fr. Edward Carter, S.J. read it the year he died. Fr. Carter knew suffering that year. His voice is so powerful as he read each Newsletter from his heart and soul. "Every man has his own share in the redemption. Each one is also called to share in that suffering through which the redemption was accomplished. He is called to share in that suffering through which all human suffering has also been redeemed. In bringing about the redemption through suffering, Christ has also raised human suffering to the level of the redemption. Thus each man in his suffering can also become a sharer in the redemptive suffering of Christ–." quote by Fr. Carter from the newsletter $10
