After Communion
St. Gertrude's Church

Title:  I Receive the Same Jesus That Died For Us

Messenger: I love Jesus so much. After Communion I wanted to be so close to Him and for Him not to leave. I was filled up with such longing, intense longing, wanting more.

Oh, how, sweet Jesus, do I ever tell you, God, that I love you? You are truly God and you come and dwell inside of Me. I am filled with such emotion to realize you are here and to know Who you are.

I realized this is truly Jesus Who died on the cross and called out from the cross to His Father. This is He, inside of me, that same, exact person. God inside of me! Filled with such emotion, wonder, excitement, longing for more knowledge of Him, to the point of tears, I could hardly stand it to realize this is truly the same Jesus Who was on the cross.

I felt the consecrated Host on my tongue and knew it was the very Jesus Who died on the cross. I could hardly stand it. I love you, Jesus, so much. I love You, I love You, I love You!

    My heart pants for love of God. He is truly God. Mary is so close to Him. I feel her union when I say His name.

    The more I pray the rosary, the more I see them so united. To be united to Jesus is to be united to Mary.

    This, I feel so intensely in my heart. I can’t even put it on paper. I love her so much that when I get near her statue I cry.

    She is truly calling us to her Son. To pray the rosary is to unite in a special way with Them. The rosary lives in my day, the mysteries of Their lives are in my thoughts. It is so wonderful to be united to Them in my life. I love Them so much.

    They are truly with us. Realizing this presence is drawing me ever closer to Them. I run to Them when I want to cry or express my joy, They are so real to me. They never ever leave. They love us so much. I love Them so much, my pen is unable to write even a minute amount of my heartfelt feelings.

Title: Do Not Judge, Love Your Brothers


Matthew 13: 24-43

He put another parable before them, ‘The kingdom of Heaven may be compared to a man who sowed good seed in his field. While everybody was asleep his enemy came, sowed darnel all among the wheat, and made off. When the new wheat sprouted and ripened, then the darnel appeared as well. The owner’s labourers went to him and said, "Sir, was it not good seed that you sowed in your field? If so, where does the darnel come from?" He said to them, "Some enemy has done this." And the labourers said, "Do you want us to go and weed it out?" But he said, "No, because when you weed out the darnel you might pull up the wheat with it. Let them both grow till the harvest; and at harvest time I shall say to the reapers: First collect the darnel and tie it in bundles to be burnt, then gather the wheat into my barn." ’

He put another parable before them, ‘The kingdom of Heaven is like a mustard seed which a man took and sowed in his field. It is the smallest of all the seeds, but when it has grown it is the biggest of shrubs and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air can come and shelter in its branches.’

He told them another parable, ‘The kingdom of Heaven is like the yeast a woman took and mixed in with three measures of flour till it was leavened all through.’

In all this Jesus spoke to the crowds in parables; indeed, he would never speak to them except in parables. This was to fulfil what was spoken by the prophet:    

I will speak to you in parables,
 unfold what has been hidden
 since the foundation of the world.

Then, leaving the crowds, he went to the house; and his disciples came to him and said, 'Explain to us the parable about the darnel in the field.' He said in reply, ' The sower of the good seed is the Son of man. The field is the world; the good seed is the subjects of the kingdom; the darnel, the subjects of the Evil One; the enemy who sowed it, the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; the reapers are the angels. Well then, just as the darnel is gathered up and burnt in the fire, so it will be at the end of time. The Son of man will send his angels and they will gather out of his kingdom all causes of falling and all who do evil, and throw them into the blazing furnace, where there will be weeping and grinding of teeth. The the upright will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Anyone who has ears should listen!


Jesus speaks: I am the Way, the Truth and the Life. He who abides in Me will have the light of life. I love all My beloved children. It is not for you to judge, "you are more loved - they are less loved by Me." I love everyone unconditionally. I love them despite their faults. You have faults, yet I love you. Never look to your brother and judge where he is with Me. It is not your place to judge and to measure. It is your place to love. Love all, be a witness to Me in all that you do. The seed you plant may germinate into a mighty oak with My water and sunlight. I constantly provide in the lives of My beloved ones.

Child, I tell you, you must love. You cannot love God, Whom you do not see, if you fail to love those you see. Each child was uniquely created by the hand of the Father. You are loved more greatly than you could ever imagine! Focus on this love, not on your brother’s faults. The love of God is abundantly poured out to you in your life. Seek after this love and not your selfish pursuits. My love will sustain the lonely heart and it is ever available to you. Look not to the right nor to the left, look to your Heavenly Father above. He is ever with you and loving you.

I am Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God. It is through Me you are saved. Come to Me all who labor and are heavily burdened and I will give you rest. Oh, blessed of My Father, need I say more? Love God and love one another. Do not judge. Do not measure. Do not criticize your beloved brothers. Love them despite all their faults. The Father loves you. You will know a treasure far greater than anything this world could give you. You are the beloved creation of My Father. See yourself and others as such. These words I have spoken to you that you will have peace and love in your hearts. Hold onto Me and you will not be led astray. I am your precious Jesus, Savior of the World. I love you with the love that bid Me lay down My Life for you. Heed My words that you will know peace, love and joy in your soul.

Title: How Beautiful Are the Consecrated Hands of the Priests

R.  When I am loved, I feel good inside and can give to others.  This is reality. To experience His love makes me feel good inside. Jesus has this love for me. The more I realize my oneness to Jesus and how He truly loves me, the more I can love you because He truly loves you.

    I see the beautiful creation of God the Father in you.  You are His unique child. I love you.  He created you. You are His beautiful creation. I am created by God the Father!  Oh, I love You, Father, You are so good.

    One day at Mass I was overwhelmed at the thought that Jesus came to this earth for love of us. What a gift of love from the Father, to send His only Son into this world.

    Every person I look at looks so beautiful. They are the creation of my beautiful Father, they are so beautiful!

    I love Jesus so much in the Eucharist. I saw a picture of the broken Host above the cup and kissed it and cried. Jesus in the Eucharist, is the true bread come down from heaven, this is truly Him, the Consecrated Host is what I receive and it is truly Jesus Christ, the Son of God!  I know Him in the Eucharist.  This is the closest I become to Him, this is so dear to me, it makes me cry.

    This is my Jesus. He is truly present in the Host when it is consecrated. I receive Him, my love, and I am so close to Him. This is my precious love, my Jesus. I love the Eucharist, this is truly Jesus!

    I cry to write this, I love Him so much.  He is truly Jesus Christ who walked as a man on the road to Calvary, who was born of Mary. Jesus is the Son of God, who died a brutal death for love of us.  This truly is Jesus in the Eucharist and I love Him so much.

    People should kiss the hands of the priest. The priest's hands are so beautiful, so blessed - kiss the consecrated hands of the priests.



At the same time, unknown to me, Father Carter received this message:

July 31, 1994

Given to Father Carter on the Feast of St. Ignatius

Words of Jesus to Members of Shepherds of Christ Associates:

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

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

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

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



August 1, 1994 

Title:  Focus On Me

Jesus:  The devil is constantly working to get you focused on yourself and bowed down. I am the true bread sent from heaven.  I give you such love, My beloved.  Do not focus on yourself, focus on Me. Turn your cares over and jump into My loving arms.

  I am the way, I am the truth, I am the light. I am Jesus, your Savior.  I love you with the most ardent Heart.

Come and be with Me, My precious one.



August 1, 1994

9:45, Fr. Carter's Chapel

Title:  Message For Father Carter

Jesus:  My beloved priest-son, I love you with the most ardent Heart, My beloved one. I have tucked you forever in My Most Sacred Heart. You are so precious to Me, My beloved one. I love you with this most ardent Heart. Know My Heart forever beats with such love for you. You are so precious to Me, My beloved one!

R. At the Gospel at Mass, I heard Jesus speak to me - Jesus said: the priests need to develop a love of the Holy Spirit. They need to grow in their hearts, to make life in the spirit seminars.  It is the Spirit whereby they will be led to lead the people to the love of God. The priests must know the Spirit, to have the Spirit alive in their hearts, to lead the people to life in the Spirit.

     Where they were fearful, they will become fearless. The Apostles received the Spirit in the upper room. Pray for the Holy Spirit to come in a special way to transform us from fear to fearlessness. They will preach the Gospel and men will understand the fire of God's love, God's love that is with us this very day.

     Alleluia, Alleluia.

    Jesus gave me this Holy Spirit Novena to pray -



    These are available in 4 languages.


Holy Spirit Novena


Opening Prayer

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Dear Father, we come to You in the name of Jesus, in union with Him in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, in the Holy Spirit. We come to You united to the Child Jesus of Good Health and the Infant of Prague. We come to You in the perfect, sinless heart of Our Mother Mary, asking her powerful intercession, uniting ourselves to her holy tears. We come to You united to all the angels and saints, and the souls in purgatory.

Prayer for Holy Spirit

We pray for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit on us, to be baptized by the Holy Spirit, that He will descend mightily on us as He did on the Apostles at Pentecost. That the Holy Spirit will transform us from fear to fearlessness and that He will give us courage to do all the Father is asking of us to help bring about the Reign of the Sacred Heart and the triumph of Mary's Immaculate Heart. We pray for the Holy Spirit to descend mightily on the Jesuits and the Poor Clares on the Shepherds of Christ leaders and members and on the whole Body of Christ and the world.

Protection by the Blood of Jesus

We pray that the Blood of Jesus will be spread on us, everyone in our families, and the Shepherds of Christ Movement, that we will be able to move steadfastly ahead and be protected from the evil one.


We pray for healing in body, mind, and soul and generational healing in ourselves, in all members in our families, and in all members of the Shepherds of Christ Movement, the Jesuit Community, the Poor Clares, the Body of Christ, and the world.

Prayer for Strength and Light

We adore You, oh Holy Spirit. Give us strength, give us light, console us. We give ourselves entirely to You. Oh Spirit of light and grace, we want to only do the will of the Father. Enlighten us that we may live always in the Father's will.

Eternal Spirit fill us with Your Divine Wisdom that we may comprehend more fully insight into Your Divine Mysteries.

Give us lights, Oh Holy Spirit that we may know God. Work within the heart, the spiritual womb of the Virgin Mary, to form us more and more into the image of Jesus.

Prayer to Be One with God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit

We long for You, Oh Spirit of Light, we long to know God, we want to be one with Him, our Divine God. We want to be one with the Father, know Him as a Person most intimately. We want to know the beloved One, the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and live and dwell in Him at all times, every moment of our lives. We want to be one with You, Oh Spirit of Light, that You move in us in our every breath.

Prayer to Be One in Jesus

Let us experience life in the Sacred Heart of Jesus, so we can say as Saint Paul, "I have been crucified with Christ and yet I am alive; yet it is no longer I, but Christ living in me...." Let us live, united to the Mass, all through the day being one in Him. Let us be able to love and know in this elevated state of oneness with our God. We long for Thee, oh beauteous God, we love You, we love You, we love You. We praise You, worship You, honor You, adore You, and thank You, our beloved God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Prayer to Dwell in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary

We seek to be one in God, to live and dwell in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, our little heaven on earth, to experience life in the all perfect, pure, sinless heart of our Mother. We want the Holy Spirit to move in us and to be united to Jesus as the Bridegroom of our souls and be a most perfect sacrifice offered to the Father at every moment as we unite in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass around the world to help in the salvation of souls.

Prayer for the Holy Spirit and His Gifts

Come Holy Spirit, come, come into our hearts, inflame all people with the fire of Your love.

Leader: Send forth Your Spirit and all will be reborn.
All:  And You will renew the face of the earth.

We pray for the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit, we ask for perfection in our souls to make us holy, holy souls likened to God.

Dear Holy Spirit, we give ourselves to You soul and body. We ask You to give us the Spirit of Wisdom, Understanding, Counsel, Fortitude, Knowledge, Piety, and Fear of the Lord.

Prayer for the Word Alive in Our Hearts

We know, dear Holy Spirit, the Word in His human nature was brought forth within the womb of the woman. We pray that His word will be brought forth in our hearts as He lives and dwells in us. We want the incarnation to go on in our lives. Dear Holy Spirit, work in us.

Little Prayers to the Holy Spirit

Dear Holy Spirit, help us not to be ignorant or indifferent or weak, help us to be strong with the love of God.

Dear Holy Spirit, please pray for our needs for us.

Dear Holy Spirit, help us to respect God and to avoid sin. Help us to live in the Father's will.

Dear Holy Spirit, help us to keep Your commandments and to respect authority. Help us to love all things as You will us to love them. Help us to want to pray and always serve God with the greatest love. Help us to know the truth. Help us to have the gift of faith, hope, and love. Help us to know what is right and what is wrong.

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.

Pray For The Success Of The Priestly Newsletter - Shepherds of Christ

Messenger: The following is the first official message I received before the statue of Mary at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center. It is a personal message for Father Carter. She was appearing.

Mary speaks:  I am the Immaculate Heart. My heart is glowing for love of all my beloved children. I am your most loving Mother. I am with you this day. Pray for the success of the Priestly Newsletter Shepherds of Christ. I am guarding your way. You will receive such graces to accomplish this task! Grace from God is so abundantly bestowed on you and will lead to the success of this endeavor! Pray for this cause at the Center. The priests will lead the people to the love of My beloved Son. This is no little task. It will take many prayers and graces. Pray hard, little one. Your prayers will change many hearts.

I am Mary, your Immaculate Mother. I bring this message to my beloved priest-son. I am aglow for love of you.

After Communion, 8:00 a.m.

Title:  God Comes to Me

R.  You are alive and inside of me.  The one, true, God-made man, Son of the Father.  His presence permeates my very being and I, oh God, I am raised to the realms of such life, life in the one true God.  Who am I that I can thus be united with the Lord, my God!

    I am but a lowly servant, a mere creature and I am raised to such heights and honored at the presence of the Lord within my very soul. I see only a little of the true honor He bestows on me with His presence. I am a mere creature and my God comes to me!

    Holy is the name of my precious Lord and I am raised to such heights in His presence. Who, who am I to be given such an honor!

    I sing a song of praise and raise my voice in jubilation to this, the Almighty God, worthy of all honor and praise and so little received from His ungrateful creatures.

    Praise God, holiest in the heights and all generations will adore His name and give Him homage.  Alleluia, Alleluia.

    What honor do I bestow on such a King?  Oh my precious Savior.  Do I contemplate what really goes on here or am I blind and dumb?

    You have given us bread from heaven and You will sustain us with Your body. I am but the lowly servant of the Lord.  My life is dependent on You, my most giving, loving Lord.  Who, I ask, who am I to be given such a great honor to receive You inside of me?

    I am raised to such heights in Him by Your very presence within me and Holy, Holy, is Your Name, You are Most high. You have indeed honored us in our lowliness with your Divine Presence.  We are but mere creatures. You are God.  Bow down to Him who humbled Himself to come among us as Man and dwells with us this very day, He is truly present in the Eucharist.  He is my precious Savior.  He is worthy of all my love and I love Him from the depth of my soul. Is there anything that I can give to my precious Lord?  He asks only for my love.  Love of Him, love of His beloved ones. 

    I love you, my precious Savior. Honor and praise to the name of Jesus, my Savior, Who sustains me!

(Message for Fr. Carter:)

  Jesus:   And who is this man, My beloved servant and priest son?  To him I will give such graces and the hand to lead so many to My Most Sacred Heart.

  My Heart is ever ablaze for love of all of these, My beloved children.  To you I impart this special grace to give them the knowledge and ardent love of My Heart beating for them and them alone.

    Such unique love, I do have for each and every soul.

Such fire I have for each of My precious ones and I impart to you the task to spread this devotion to My Heart and that of My most loving Mother.

    To all We are joined with such love for them. Tell them of this vibrant love that We have for each and every soul.  Your love for My Heart will lead many to know My precious love for them. I tuck you deeply inside of My Heart in the warmth and love of My Heart and you will teach others about Our beating Hearts.

    Our Hearts are alive with such burning love.  This is the fire of My love given for each soul when I gave Myself to My death on the cross.

    I give to you now, Myself in the Eucharist.  Tell all of My ardent love and beating Heart, alive for love of each and every soul.

    I love uniquely. I love with fire, I love with vibrancy.  I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I am on fire for love of My beloved ones. Tell all of My love.

  And, for My religious, I tuck so specially in My Heart.

I call out to open yourselves up and experience this love given so generously to you, My chosen ones.  But where do you go while I wait for you?  Do you not know I am truly present and waiting for your love in the tabernacle?  Where are you, my special, beloved sons and daughters?  Where are you when I wait and want to share this love with you?

    Oh, please, My beloved priest son, tell them of My ardent love.  Tell My very chosen ones how I am waiting for their love in the tabernacle. Tell them to come and be with Me and share this true love, given for them alone. This is the love of God, one true, magnificant...this is My beating Heart, alive for love of you, My priests and sisters, this very day. I am your Jesus and I wait for you this very day.

    I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus.  I call out with such emotion and love to you, My precious ones.  Do you harken to the call or go off to be busy for such incidental things?

    Come to My Heart and experience all you need. I fill your hearts with such love. You will run and not get weary, you will fly on eagles wings, your feet will not falter and you will know the way as you never knew before, for I go with you into the dark night and the light that shines is the fire of My love, deep in your hearts. You will shine in the darkness and your light will be the brightest light that shines. It will be powered by My hand that is forever upon you.  You will cast My light from your very being and all will know the power of the Lord!

    I say unto you, Nothing in This World Can Compare to the Might of God!  I have given to those who come to Me, My most precious love - the love of God is a burning ember that burns in the darkest night!

    Oh, beloved of My Father, open up your eyes.  You have closed yourselves to that which is most important.  You are following the sheep that are being led astray and are falling into the pit.  Open your eyes, follow the Master!  I am the Good Shepherd, I lead, you follow!  If you follow other roads, you fall into destruction.  Come, beloved of My Father, from whence I have chosen you.  I will send you into the highways and the byways and you will find the lost ones and lead them home.

    Open your eyes. Keep your focus on He who leads, He Who is mighty, He Who loves you with undying love.  You will lead your brothers home and the sheep will live in the home of your Father.  Come home to My Heart, ablaze for love of you.  Follow the call of My Mother, she calls you as your most loving Mother.

    This is love: to lay down your life for your friends. I am the Good Shepherd, I know mine and they follow Me.  The way to Me is through My mother's heart. I am in your midst this very day.  Come to My most Sacred Heart, alive and waiting your return.  Alleluia.  Oh how I love you, My chosen ones.  Harken to My call. I call, will you answer Me?

    Many of My shepherds are not leading My sheep to My burning Heart on fire for love of you -

    The purpose of My Newsletter is to reach the priest shepherds to lead My sheep that have strayed, home to My Heart - tell them My priest son of My undying love for them. The fires of My Heart burn for My priest sons and My sheep - this is My Newsletter to lead them home to My Heart.
