                Abraham was called to sacrifice his
                    son —
                    This is first time the word love
                    is used —
                    'Your son you love' — God says to
                        Abraham

 

 


                Take your son Isaac — your only one you
                    love


                Abraham obeyed — he took his son and
                    set out — wood — he found the
                    place God sent him to —

                    Abraham took the knife

 

Genesis 22: 7

Isaac spoke to his father Abraham. ‘Father?’ he said. ‘Yes, my son,’ he replied. ‘Look,’ he said, ‘here are the fire and the wood, but where is the lamb for the burnt offering?’

Sacrifice

R. When I go to Mass I offer a sacrifice. God wants our all. He wants to be first in our life. He asked Abraham to sacrifice his son.

Gen. 22:1-2, 9-13, 15-18:

It happened some time later that God put Abraham to the test. 'Abraham, Abraham!' he called. 'Here I am,' he replied. God said, 'Take your son, your only son, your beloved Isaac, and go to the land of Moriah, where you are to offer him as a burnt offering on one of the mountains which I shall point out to you. '

When they arrived at the place which God had indicated to him, Abraham built an altar there, and arranged the wood. Then he bound his son and put him on the altar on top of the wood. Abraham stretched out his hand and took the knife to kill his son.

But the angel of Yahweh called to him from heaven. 'Abraham, Abraham!' he said. 'Here I am,' he replied. 'Do not raise your hand against the boy,' the angel said. 'Do not harm him, for now I know you fear God. You have not refused me your own beloved son.' Then looking up, Abraham saw a ram caught by its horns in a bush. Abraham took the ram and offered it as a burnt offering in place of his son.

The angel of Yahweh called Abraham a second time from heaven. 'I swear by my own self, Yahweh declares, that because you have done this, because you have not refused me your own beloved son, I will shower blessings on you and make your descendants as numerous as the stars of heaven and the grains of sand on the seashore. Your descendants will gain possession of the gates of their enemies. All nations on earth will bless themselves by your descendants, because you have obeyed my command.'

R. The Father gave His Son for us. This is how great the Father's love is for us.

When we go to the altar many times we are suffering. We want something really bad, but we know we love God the most. What the Father asks for us is to offer that which we are so attached to as a sacrifice, united to the sacrifice of His Son, Jesus. If we offer this sacrifice to Him, the Father will pour out blessings that will be divine blessings, greater than anything we could have here on earth.

The Mass is the perfect sacrifice we offer to the Father, in which God pours out His blessings and we are one with Him and with all others in a profound expression of love. God shares His divine love with us and we partake in an intense way in His divine loving capacity. In order to become one in Him and to feel His love like this, we must surrender ourselves and be open.

He told Abraham to offer his son. God gave him his son back. He wanted Abraham to love God above all things and people.

Jesus offered Himself as a sacrifice to the Father. This is the most pleasing sacrifice to the Father. If He gave His Son Who died for love of us, will He deny us when we unite our petitions with Jesus and offer these at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass?

He took them to the highest mountain and He was transfigured before them in the greatest light.

Mark 9:2-10:

Six days later, Jesus took with him Peter and James and John and led them up a high mountain on their own by themselves. There in their presence he was transfigured: his clothes became brilliantly white, whiter than any earthly bleacher could make them. Elijah appeared to them with Moses; and they were talking to Jesus. Then Peter spoke to Jesus, 'Rabbi,' he said, 'it is wonderful for us to be here; so let us make three shelters, one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.' He did not know what to say; they were so frightened. And a cloud came, covering them in shadow; and from the cloud there came a voice, 'This is my Son, the Beloved. Listen to him.' Then suddenly, when they looked round, they saw no one with them any more but only Jesus.

As they were coming down from the mountain he warned them to tell no one what they had seen, until after the Son of man had risen from the dead. They observed the warning faithfully, though among themselves they discussed what 'rising from the dead' could mean.

R. We go to the altar of sacrifice. The mountain to come, in which so many graces will flow, is the altar of sacrifice where the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is offered through the hands of consecrated priests.

We hear the Father say, "This is My beloved Son in whom I am well pleased, listen to Him." He is speaking to us. He is the Word. He is speaking in these messages. He is unveiling the Scriptures and speaking to us in plain talk. This is a great gift He is giving to us.

We are transformed in the Mass. We unite with the greatest sacrifice offered in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. We have the most perfect sacrifice to offer to the Father when we offer this sacrifice. He gives us great blessings. We die to ourselves, we become white.

We must unite all of our sacrifices to this Holy Sacrifice of the Mass being said all over the world. This is the greatest way to magnify all of our offerings - by uniting everything we do as an offering, a sacrifice to the Father in union with His Son.

                Abraham's faith was tested —

                Isaac was the promise child now
                    Abraham was put to a severe test
                    with his son —

                There is now a Muslim temple where they thought
                    Abraham was to sacrifice his
                    son —
                    Abraham had such faith —
                    Abraham's obedience to God —

                God the Father sacrificed His Son for
                    our salvation, but He turned
                    it around in the resurrection —

                We see Jesus' power to cure paralytic —
                    to heal, cast out demons —
                    we see Jesus has the authority to
                    forgive sins —

                We ask God to give us healing, give
                    us strength, thank Him for
                    His Son who died for us.

               

 

                Gospel Today

Matthew 9: 1-8

After he had come down from the mountain large crowds followed him. Suddenly a man with a virulent skin-disease came up and bowed low in front of him, saying, 'Lord, if you are willing, you can cleanse me.' Jesus stretched out his hand and touched him saying, 'I am willing. Be cleansed.' And his skin-disease was cleansed at once. Then Jesus said to him, 'Mind you tell no one, but go and show yourself to the priest and make the offering prescribed by Moses, as evidence to them.'  

When he went into Capernaum a centurion came up and pleaded with him. 'Sir,' he said, 'my servant is lying at home paralysed and in great pain.' Jesus said to him, 'I will come myself and cure him.' The centurion replied, 'Sir, I am not worthy to have you under my roof; just give the word and my servant will be cured.

 

                    The Mass is the Sacrifice of
                Calvary sacramentally made present —
                We unite our lives to the Masses going
                on around the world —  

 

Morning Offering (For Shepherds of Christ Members)

My dear Father, I offer You this day all my prayers, works, joys and sufferings, my every breath, my every heartbeat, my every thought, all my actions, in union with Jesus in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass throughout the world, in the Holy Spirit. I pray the Holy Spirit is with me every second today, enlightening me to do the will of the Father and filling me with the fire of God's love.

We ask God to shower His abundant grace on us and the members of our Shepherds of Christ chapter so that we may grow more and more in our knowledge and love of God.

We consecrate ourselves to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. We pray for Father Carter, for Father Smith, for Rita Ring, and for John Weickert, for all leaders and helpers in the Shepherds of Christ Movement, for Shepherds of Christ Ministries, and Our Lady of Light Ministry. We pray for all those who are working in these ministries.

We bind ourselves and our children and our friends to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. We place the precious blood of Jesus on ourselves, and all we touch, so that we will be protected from the evil one. We pray to St. Michael to cast the devil into hell.

We love You, God, we love You, we love You. We beg that we may receive the grace to love You more and more deeply. We adore You, we praise You, our beloved Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Mark 14: 12-16, 22, 26

On the first day of Unleavened Bread, when the Passover lamb was sacrificed, his disciples said to him, ‘Where do you want us to go and make the preparations for you to eat the Passover?’ So he sent two of his disciples, saying to them, ‘Go into the city and you will meet a man carrying a pitcher of water. Follow him, and say to the owner of the house which he enters, "The Master says: Where is the room for me to eat the Passover with my disciples?" He will show you a large upper room furnished with couches, all prepared. Make the preparations for us there.’ The disciples set out and went to the city and found everything as he had told them, and prepared the Passover.

And as they were eating he took bread, and when he had said the blessing he broke it and gave it to them. ‘Take it,’ he said, ‘this is my body.

                            After the psalms had been sung they left for the Mount of Olives.

Sorrowful Mysteries

 

                The Agony in the Garden

                (1) Jesus: I sweat My Blood for your sins —
                        I sweat My Blood for your sins —

                (2) Jesus: Why do you act like you do not sin —
                        Examine your conscience twice a day —
                        Thank Me for your gifts you have been
                        given all day —
                        Say you are sorry for your sins, I like
                        a contrite heart —
                        I want you to say you are sorry —-
                        Not to come in your pride — condescending,
                        like you are so good, when you have been
                        unloving and hateful to others —
                        If you are good it is because of My grace
                            I give you and you cooperate with this
                            grace — Be humble, be truthful, be
                            loving               

                (3)

Matthew 5: 48

'You must therefore be perfect, just as your heavenly Father is perfect.'

                (4) Jesus: Go out to the ends of the earth and do as
                        I have asked you to do — with love for Me —
                        give yourself as a gift to Me — your
                        beloved Spouse, the Bridegroom of your
                        soul.

                (5) Jesus: I sweat Blood for your sins.

                (6) Jesus: I am your God, I love you —

                (7) The heavenly Father,
                        I created you so special to do My work —
                        Do all that you were called to do in love —

                (8) Jesus: Do not be selfish — look at Me in the garden —
                        My thoughts were for my beloved souls —
                        Today I call you to reach them — to be honest —
                        to say you are sorry when you sin.

                (9) Jesus: I am Jesus, I call you to live a life of
                        holiness, I love you so much, I am
                        your beloved Spouse — do what you do
                        for Me — your beloved — love Me — think
                        of Me — Serve Me — you serve Me when
                        you love your brothers.

              (10) Jesus: Oh I cried blood for the souls that would
                        be lost despite My suffering, My sacrifice,
                        My death.
                        Why will you not see you serve Me —
                        You do what you do for love of Me —
                        Some who call themselves holy have lost
                        their personal relationship with Me —
                        They have forgotten — they serve for pride,
                        serve themselves, they serve for affection
                        from men and I am their beloved who waits
                        with an open Heart for their love and they
                        forget why they live for foolish affections
                        of men —

 

  

                Jesus was Whipped at the Pillar

                (1) Jesus: I stood at the pillar — tied — bound like a
                        criminal, I am the Almighty God and I allowed
                        this humiliation for you, for love of you
                        I could have stopped it and
                        you can be so prideful — trying to be over
                        others — using my work to fit your selfish
                        ways, prideful ways —
                        stop it, I tell you, be of a humble heart,
                        not prideful, souls are at stake —
                        I love the souls —
                        I died for them, I suffered for them — I
                        was beaten for them — I cried blood for them
                        Won't you stop your condescending ways —
                        laughing at Me — what you do to others —
                        you have done to Me —
                        Don't be selfish — Don't look inward,
                        focusing on yourselves, selfishly,
                        don't listen to the devil tell you how
                        you are cheated — you need love —
                        I give you My love and you reject Me —
                        How you wounded My Bleeding Heart when
                        I love you so and you are so richly blessed —
                        I love you, I love you, I love you — think
                        of the souls I love and died for — I am Jesus —
                        Son of the Living God, the Lamb of God

                (2) Jesus: They whipped Me — My flesh was torn,
                        My skin ripped — I suffered for you
                        and for My beloved souls —
                        My face appears in Clearwater — Bloodied
                        and beaten — My eye was closed with swelling
                        and wounds, the Blood poured into My other
                        eye —
                        Help Me reach the souls I was beaten for
                            and died for

                (3) Jesus: I give you the priests and the Church — pray
                        for them with the prayers I give you —
                        this is serious —
                        You laugh at Me
                        You ignore Me —
                        You can be selfish, focused on yourself
                        or realize why God the Father put
                        Mary's image on this building —
                        To spread My prayer chapters —
                        To spread My Ministries
                        This is the Father's Plan —

                (4) Jesus: When the devil tempts you to focus on
                        yourself and your selfish ways — you
                        are not focused on My work —
                        Pray between 12:00 and 3:00 on Friday —
                        run the Passion Movie silent every
                        Friday —
                        Suffer for the world by praying united to
                            the Mass, united to My Passion

                (5) Jesus: I am Jesus — I died for you —
                        Your life moves on in petty pace —

                    Sing: A Song from Jesus

                (6) Sing: See the Eyes that Look at Mary —

                (7) Jesus: I stood in a puddle of My own blood.

                (8) Jesus: I seat Blood for you and your sins —
                        I was whipped for your sins
                        My flesh was torn —
                        Offer your lives as a sacrifice for the
                            souls of this earth —

                (9) Jesus: Tell people to begin prayer chapters as
                        I want.

              (10) Jesus: Spread these pictures I give of My Sacred Heart
                        and Mary's Immaculate Heart —
                        — tell the people to look at them and pray
                            to Me
                        — tell the people to consecrate their
                            homes to the Sacred Heart and Immaculate
                            Heart —
                        — tell them to hang the pictures in
                            homes and schools and Churches
                        — tell them to teach their children,
                            how I am to be the
                            King and Center of their hearts and homes
                        — tell them to consecrate their hearts
                            to My Heart and the Heart of My
                            Mother

                    I love you —

                    I am Jesus your love

                (2) Jesus: Won't you help Me?

                (3) Jesus: I am the King of Heaven and Earth —
                        I am the Son of God.

                (4) Jesus: My Heart is an endless vat of love —
                        I love you so much — help Me now —
                        be My instrument — reach the souls
                        with the message, I give here —
                        be obedient, don't have your own
                        agenda — do it My way —
                    These writings must circulate —

                    Tell people about the daily message —

                    This material is to help them to change
                        their lives, to grow in the spiritual
                        life — spread My writings —
                        Don't ignore My wishes any longer

                (5) Jesus: I am the King of Kings —

                    R. The Last Judgment

Matthew 25: 31-46

‘When the Son of man comes in his glory, escorted by all the angels, then he will take his seat on his throne of glory. All nations will be assembled before him and he will separate people one from another as the shepherd separates sheep from goats. He will place the sheep on his right hand and the goats on his left. Then the King will say to those on his right hand, "Come, you whom my Father has blessed, take as your heritage the kingdom prepared for you since the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you made me welcome, lacking clothes and you clothed me, sick and you visited me, in prison and you came to see me." Then the upright will say to him in reply, "Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? When did we see you a stranger and make you welcome, lacking clothes and clothe you? When did we find you sick or in prison and go to see you?" And the King will answer, "In truth I tell you, in so far as you did this to one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did it to me." Then he will say to those on his left hand, "Go away from me, with your curse upon you, to the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. For I was hungry and you never gave me food, I was thirsty and you never gave me anything to drink, I was a stranger and you never made me welcome, lacking clothes and you never clothed me, sick and in prison and you never visited me." Then it will be their turn to ask, "Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty, a stranger or lacking clothes, sick or in prison, and did not come to your help?" Then he will answer, "In truth I tell you, in so far as you neglected to do this to one of the least of these, you neglected to do it to me." And they will go away to eternal punishment, and the upright to eternal life.’

 

(6) Psalm 23: 1-6

Yahweh is my shepherd, I lack nothing. 
In grassy meadows he lets me lie. 

By tranquil streams he leads me 
    to restore my spirit. 
He guides me in paths of saving justice 
    as befits his name. 

Even were I to walk in a ravine as dark as death 
I should fear no danger, for you are at my side. 
Your staff and your crook are there to soothe me. 

You prepare a table for me 
    under the eyes of my enemies; 
you anoint my head with oil; 
    my cup brims over. 

Kindness and faithful love pursue me 
    every day of my life. 
I make my home in the house of Yahweh 
    for all time to come.

 

                (7) 1 Corinthians 15: 20-26, 28

    In fact, however, Christ has been raised from the dead, as the first-fruits of all who have fallen asleep. As it was by one man that death came, so through one man has come the resurrection of the dead. Just as all die in Adam, so in Christ all will be brought to life; but all of them in their proper order: Christ the first-fruits, and next, at his coming, those who belong to him. After that will come the end, when he will hand over the kingdom to God the Father, having abolished every principality, every ruling force and power. For he is to be king until he has made his enemies his footstool, and the last of the enemies to be done away with is death, for he has put all things under his feet.

When everything has been subjected to him, then the Son himself will be subjected to the One who has subjected everything to him, so that God may be all in all.

 

                (8) Ezekiel 34: 11-12, 15-17

    “For the Lord Yahweh says this: Look, I myself shall take care of my flock and look after it. As a shepherd looks after his flock when he is with his scattered sheep, so shall I look after my sheep. I shall rescue them from wherever they have been scattered on the day of clouds and darkness.

I myself shall pasture my sheep, I myself shall give them rest–declares the Lord Yahweh. I shall look for the lost one, bring back the stray, bandage the injured and make the sick strong. I shall watch over the fat and healthy. I shall be a true shepherd to them."

    "As for you, my sheep, the Lord Yahweh says this: I shall judge between sheep and sheep, between rams and he-goats.

 

                (9) R. God is all powerful —
                        God is with us
                        God is love
                        Open our hearts
                        Let the world know your peace
                        Help us to be instruments of your Sacred Heart.

                The Carrying of the Cross

                (1) August 23, 1993 - On His Passion

Jesus: My dear child,
I was condemned to death, death on a cross. They gave Me a big cross and made Me carry it. They stood around and glared at Me. It weighed on My shoulder and I pulled at it until it finally moved. Every step was almost impossible as I dragged it, weighing so heavily on My shoulders.

My shoulder felt as if the bones inside would crack and the cross would fall through to the ground. I couldn’t drag it any more. I tried, I fell. I fell and its weight fell on Me. A guard hit Me with something sharp. It really hurt because he wanted Me to move, and fast! People were watching — on with the show! How dare I fall in the middle of the show! He hit Me again and the blow really stung Me. I got up because it hurt so badly. I tried to walk on.

My Mother was in the crowd. She looked at Me and her face looked red and hurt. Tears rolled down her cheeks like rain and as her eyes met Mine, I was hurt so by her sorrow! She was always by My side, silent and loving. She was My mother of love! She is always there next to you when you suffer.

I fell again and he (the guard) really hit Me. It (the cross) was so heavy that he and I together could barely move it. It seemed as I walked, heavier with the sins of the world heaped on it. My hands were bleeding. Blood ran from the wounds of My thorns and My head throbbed, seeming to make the wounds in My head bleed even more. Some of the Blood was dried, some of it running all over My Body. I had so many cuts and bruises — and people watched and laughed!

I am Jesus, Son of the Living God, and they laughed and mimicked Me! Oh, such hardened hearts! How vile can men’s heart become? The devil’s grip is paralyzing and crippling.

                (2) August 23, 1993 - On His Passion continues

The walk was so long up a hill and over rocks — the cross had to be lifted over the rocks. My Body was bleeding so badly! My heart was pounding. I knew that the salvation of all men depended on My love. Therefore, I went through such agony.

I thought of My intense love for you — that many would go to heaven because of My suffering — and I continued to the top of the hill. At the top they laid Me on the cross and with a big hammer nailed My hands to it. It was the worst (suffering) yet. My hands were nailed with big nails and the big hammer. Oh, it was unbelievable! Then, as if that weren’t enough, with a big nail they nailed through both feet.

Then they lifted the cross and banged it into (a hole in) the ground. My shoulders ached from how I hung. My head bobbed and My neck ached and they laughed and said, "Now save Yourself." I hurt so much! I suffered this way for hours — which seemed like forever — and they glared at Me and laughed! My Mother watched in such agony.

For love of you, to My death I gave you My Body. My child, I shed My Blood and gave you My life that you might be with Me forever in heaven — not for a day, a month or a year, but forever with Me in heaven.

I am the true Bread come down from heaven. He who eats My Flesh will have life forever. For the drink I give you is My Blood and food you eat is My Body. Who would lay down his life for a friend? I did, for you. I love you this much, child. Forget about those who reject you. You have My life that I gave you and I give you life eternal.

I am the One true God. I am the Light of life. He who abides in Me will have life eternal, for the drink I give is My Blood and the food I give is My Body. Drink and eat and have everlasting life.

My child, that is all you need to know. Love one another and be good that you may enter into My kingdom.

end of August 23, 1993

                (3) Jesus: I carried My cross to the hill of Calvary —
                        My thoughts were of you —
                        Oh My people I love you so very much —
                        I am the way, the truth and the life —
                        Help Me reach My precious ones.

                (4) R. Jesus fell under His cross 3 times —
                        God gives us a sharing in His life
                            in baptism —
                        Why are we so selfish —
                        We need to thank Jesus endlessly for
                            dying and rising so we can share
                            in His life —

                (5) Jesus: Thank Jesus for suffering for us —
                        Through the pierced Heart of Jesus
                        the Church was born —
                        water for baptism — Blood for the Eucharist

                (6) R. They stripped Jesus of His clothes,
                          They beat Jesus
                           They made Him carry a heavy cross —
                            Jesus said "yes" for love of us —

                    Jesus: "I gave Myself for love of you, My
                        beloved — I love you so much —
                        I carried My cross — I fell under
                        it and I died for you.

                        Won't you help Me today?

                        Spread the prayer chapters —
                        Spread the messages of Tell My People
                        Spread My love letters in the Blue Books
                        Spread My Rosary Meditations

                        Help ME —

                        Follow My agenda —

                        Don't give into a routine — a
                            comfortable cubby hole —
                            I fill you with My grace —
                            I am alive, I am alive,
                            I am alive —

                        Don't talk about Me like a
                            dead object

                        Spread the Blue Books

                        Don't be stopped because you
                            listen to satan, who tempts
                            you to focus on yourself —
                            Who could fill you?

                        Only - Me

                (7) Song: God's Love

                (8) Song: I Love You Jesus

                (9) Jesus: To My death on the cross
                        I obeyed the Father's will —   

                (10) 1 Peter 2: 2

Like new–born babies all your longing should be for milk—the unadulterated spiritual milk—which will help you to grow up to salvation,

      

 

                The Crucifixion

                (1) Song: At the cross her station keeping

                (2) Jesus: I went to the hill of Calvary —
                        I mounted the cross
                        I died for you
                        I gave the last drop of My blood —
                        I gave the last beat of My Heart —

                (3) Jesus: I cried bloody tears for those who
                        would be lost eternally
                        despite My suffering.

                (4) Jesus: Obey the wishes of My Father who
                        gives to you the Shepherds of Christ.

                (5) From Tell My People

        Age of the Two Hearts

Jesus:  "My beloved priest-companion, I have allowed you to experience in extraordinary fashion the riches contained in My Heart and My Mother's Heart. I desire that you tell all My people about these riches. I desire that My people consecrate themselves to My Sacred Heart and to Mary's Immaculate Heart. My people are living in the beginnings of the age of the Two Hearts.

    "After the time of the purification is completed, this new era of the Church and the world will become firmly established. This era will be characterized by the triumph of the Immaculate Heart and the reign of My Sacred Heart. All those who consecrate themselves to My Heart and to My Mother's Heart will help to establish this glorious new age. I am Lord and Master. Please listen to My urgent request. Within Our Hearts you will experience the love and security, the peace and the joy, which you all desire. I love My people with a tremendous love, and in My love I give them this message!"

Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus

My dear fellow Associate Members,

Jesus is calling special apostles to join a new division of the Shepherds of Christ Movement. Here is a message from Jesus given to Father Carter:

    My beloved priest-companion, I am requesting that a new prayer movement be started under the direction of Shepherds of Christ Ministries. I am asking for volunteers who are willing to pray before the Blessed Sacrament for one hour, twice-weekly. Members of the Shepherds of Christ prayer chapters, as well as others, are to be invited to join this movement.

    These apostles are to pray for the intentions I am giving you. For part of the hour they are to use the prayers of the Shepherds of Christ Associates Handbook. They may spend the rest of the hour as they so choose.

    I will use this new prayer movement within My Shepherds of Christ Ministries in a powerful way to help in the renewal of My Church and the world. I will give great graces to those who join this movement. The name, Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus, is to be given to this movement.

    I am inviting My beloved Rita Ring to be coordinator for this activity.

    I pour out the great love of My Sacred Heart to all. I am Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the flock.

    This is indeed a special calling for us to unite in one heart with His Eucharistic Heart and pray for the following intentions:

  1. For the spread of the devotion to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary culminating in the reign of the Sacred Heart and the triumph of the Immaculate Heart.

  2. For the Pope.

  3. For all bishops of the world.

  4. For all priests.

  5. For all sisters and brothers in the religious life.

  6. For all members of the Shepherds of Christ Movement, and for the spread of this movement to the world.

  7. For all members of the Catholic Church.

  8. For all members of the human family.

  9. For all souls in purgatory.

The Birth of the Full Ministries of the Shepherds of Christ

    "I wish to share with you part of a message which Jesus gave us on October 13, 1994. The message tells us about the expansion of the Shepherds of Christ movement:

    'My beloved priest-companion, today I come to you with another mission. I am asking you to establish Shepherds of Christ Ministries. At My request you have already begun the priestly newsletter, "Shepherds of Christ", and the prayer chapters, Shepherds of Christ Associates...

    'I am giving you this message on this day, the 77th Anniversary of the Great Apparition at Fatima, because of the close connection between the Shepherds of Christ movement and the Fatima message. The Fatima message is centered in devotion to My Heart and My Mother's Heart, especially in consecration to Our Hearts. Shepherds of Christ Ministries is also centered in devotion to Our Hearts. I will use Shepherds of Christ Ministries as a great instrument in helping to bring about the triumph of the Immaculate Heart and the reign of My Sacred Heart. When this occurs, My Church and the world will be experiencing the great era of peace promised by My Mother at Fatima.

    'Today, then, October 13, 1994, the 77th Anniversary of the Great Apparition at Fatima, marks the birth of Shepherds of Christ Ministries. I pour forth the great love of My Sacred Heart to all. I am Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the flock.'

    "Jesus has told us that Shepherds of Christ Ministries includes: the priestly newsletter, Shepherds of Christ, Shepherds of Christ Associates prayer chapters, various publications, including books, whatever else Our Lord directs us to undertake.

    "As members of Shepherds of Christ Associates, you are an extremely important part of Shepherds of Christ Ministries. You have given great joy to the Heart of Jesus by responding to His invitation to become members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. As He draws you closer to His Heart and to His Mother's Heart as Associates members, He will fill you with an ever-increasing experience of His love, peace, and joy."

- From In the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, Newsletter of Shepherds of Christ Associates
by Fr. Edward J. Carter S.J., Volume 1, No. 1, 1995. p. 2.

 

                (9) 1 John 5: 1-6

Whoever believes that Jesus is the Christ 
is a child of God, 
and whoever loves the father 
loves the son. 
In this way we know 
    that we love God’s children, 
when we love God 
    and keep his commandments. 
This is what the love of God is: 
keeping his commandments. 
Nor are his commandments 
    burdensome, 
because every child of God 
overcomes the world. 
And this is the victory 
    that has overcome the world—
our faith.

Who can overcome the world
but the one who believes
    that Jesus is the Son of God?
He it is who came by water and blood,
Jesus Christ,
not with water alone
but with water and blood,
and it is the Spirit that bears witness,
for the Spirit is Truth.

How to pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet

Begin with:

  Our Father..., Hail Mary..., The Creed.

  On the five large beads:

  Eternal Father, I offer You the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity
  of Your dearly beloved Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ in atonement
  for our sins and those of the whole world.

  On the ten small beads:

  For the sake of His sorrowful Passion have mercy on us
  and on the whole world.

  Conclude with repeating three times:

  Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One,
  have mercy on us and on the whole world.

 

 

Novena to the Infant of Prague
(to be prayed hourly if possible)

 
          O Jesus, who said, "Ask and you shall receive, seek and you shall find, knock and it shall be opened to you," through the intercession of Mary, Your most holy Mother, I knock, I seek, I ask that my prayer be granted. 

          O Jesus, who said, "All that you ask of the Father in My Name He will grant you," through the intercession of Mary, Your most holy Mother, I humbly and urgently ask Your Father in Your Name that my prayer be granted. 

          O Jesus, who said, "Heaven and earth shall pass away, but My word shall not pass," through the intercession of Mary, Your most holy Mother, I feel confident that my prayer will be granted.
