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.

Words of Jesus to Members of
Shepherds of Christ Associates:
"My beloved priest-companion, I intend to use the priestly newsletter, Shepherds of Christ, and the movement, Shepherds of Christ Associates, in a powerful way for the renewal of My Church and the world.
"I will use the newsletter and the chapters of Shepherds of Christ Associates as a powerful instrument for spreading devotion to My Heart and My Mother's Heart.
"I am calling many to become members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. To all of them I will give great blessings. I will use them as instruments to help bring about the triumph of the Immaculate Heart and the reign of My Sacred Heart. I will give great graces to the members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. I will call them to be deeply united to My Heart and to Mary's Heart as I lead them ever closer to My Father in the Holy Spirit."

Dear Fellow Shepherds of Christ,
I give my heart to Jesus and Mary with you in love.
God has called us to be united as a family in the Shepherds of Christ. We have received tremendous support from the Vatican recently with an important Cardinal writing the Introduction to Fr. John J. Pasquini’s most recent book Ecce Fides – which is written to help Catholics learn and defend their faith. We have also received several powerful endorsements from Cardinals and Bishops for Fr. John’s book on the Eucharist entitled Medicine of Immortality. Both these books are unpublished and we need funds to move forward.
Sadly, we also need funds to finish mailing the Prayer Priestly Newsletter and the Prayer Manual that bishop’s requested for their priests. About 25,000 newsletters are piled up in the China, Indiana community building ready to go, but we lack $17,000 in postage
This is a vocation — to pray deeply for the priests, the Church and the world and to help support the Newsletter and the Ministries.
Remember the image of Our Lady of Clearwater on the building. We have very special Fatima statues so you can have a special place of prayer in your homes, praying the rosary for your family and for the priests, the Church and the world. Those using the special statues will be united to us in a special way — We want you to pray the Shepherds of Christ prayers for the priests, the Church and the world from your special place in your home.
Also Felix who did the original crucifix in Florida, has hand carved crucifixes with stands that are so gorgeous. These can be purchased, carved by Felix for your special prayer corner. Crucifixes and statues should be used especially praying for the priests, the Church and the world. Special Fatima/Clearwater Statue 27" plus crown $400, 18" plus crown $200, 11" $150 (shipping is additional). The 30” Crucifix is $750+$50 stand. It is best to pick up the Crucifix from our stores in Clearwater, Florida or in China, Indiana.
Please help us with your prayers and funds so we can help complete the mission begun by Mary at Fatima — spreading the consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Sacred Heart of Jesus to all the priests, the Church and the world.
With love in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary,
President, Shepherds of Christ.
if you obey the voice of Yahweh your God, by keeping his commandments and decrees written in the book of this Law, and if you return to Yahweh your God with all your heart and soul. For this Law which I am laying down for you today is neither obscure for you nor beyond your reach. It is not in heaven, so that you need to wonder, Who will go up to heaven for us and bring it down to us, so that we can hear and practise it? Nor is it beyond the seas, so that you need to wonder, Who will cross the seas for us and bring it back to us, so that we can hear and practise it?* No, the word is very near to you, it is in your mouth and in your heart for you to put into practice.
Psalm 69: 14, 17 , 30-31, 33-34, 36
Rescue me from the mire before I sink in;
so I shall be saved from those who hate me,
from the watery depths.not turn away from your servant,
be quick to answer me, for I am in trouble.
I will praise God’s name in song,
I will extol him by thanksgiving,
for this will please Yahweh more than an ox,
than a bullock horned and hoofed.
For God listens to the poor,
he has never scorned his captive people.
Let heaven and earth and seas,
and all that stirs in them, acclaim him!
the descendants of his servants will inherit it,
and those who love his name will dwell there.
Colossians 1: 15-20
He is the image of the unseen God, the first–born of all creation, for in him were created all things in heaven and on earth: everything visible and everything invisible, thrones, ruling forces, sovereignties, powers—all things were created through him and for him. He exists before all things and in him all things hold together, and he is the Head of the Body, that is, the Church. He is the Beginning, the first–born from the dead, so that he should be supreme in every way; because God wanted all fullness to be found in him and through him to reconcile all things to him, everything in heaven and everything on earth, by making peace through his death on the cross.
Luke 10: 25-37
And now a lawyer stood up and, to test him, asked, ‘Master, what must I do to inherit eternal life?’ He said to him, ‘What is written in the Law? What is your reading of it?’ He replied, ‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind, and your neighbour as yourself.’ Jesus said to him, ‘You have answered right, do this and life is yours.’
But the man was anxious to justify himself and said to Jesus, ‘And who is my neighbour?’ In answer Jesus said, ‘A man was once on his way down from Jerusalem to Jericho and fell into the hands of bandits; they stripped him, beat him and then made off, leaving him half dead. Now a priest happened to be travelling down the same road, but when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side. In the same way a Levite who came to the place saw him, and passed by on the other side. But a Samaritan traveller who came on him was moved with compassion when he saw him. He went up to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring oil and wine on them. He then lifted him onto his own mount and took him to an inn and looked after him. Next day, he took out two denarii and handed them to the innkeeper and said, "Look after him, and on my way back I will make good any extra expense you have." Which of these three, do you think, proved himself a neighbour to the man who fell into the bandits’ hands?’ He replied, ‘The one who showed pity towards him.’ Jesus said to him, ‘Go, and do the same yourself.’

Dear Associates and Apostles of the Shepherds of Christ,
I give my heart to Jesus and Mary with you in love.
This year is the 90th anniversary of Our Lady’s first apparition May 13, 2007. This gift is for your prayer chapter – Please pray the Shepherds of Christ Prayers.
We have received almost 90 letters from the Vatican since the end of August, 2006 and a stack 7” high of responses of Bishops, Archbishops and Cardinals around the world who have responded to the Shepherds of Christ Priestly Newsletter and Fr. Pasquini’s Books.
We pray 24 hours a day in China, Indiana for this mission before the exposed Eucharist given to us by the Archbishop.
We need your prayers and support to spread the Priestly Newsletter to the far ends of the earth.
This Newsletter on the Priesthood is a most beautiful writing.
Praying and supporting the Newsletter – spreading the Consecration to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary is a vocation.
When you do this you are helping to bring greater oneness and peace to the world and do what Mary and Jesus want.
Fr. Carter said the support for the Newsletter was to come from the prayer chapters.
It is because of your prayers and support we are doing what we do today.
This is Jesus’ Movement as directed by Him to Fr. Carter and we have all helped in it becoming what it is today.
Jesus has called you to this special mission.
Love in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary,
We need the building payment for 19th of July.
Call Glaci or go to China or Clearwater.
Crucifix — hand carved by Felix
who carved the crucifix 22'
at the Virgin Mary building.
