Exodus 16: 2-4, 12-15

And the whole community of Israelites began complaining about Moses and Aaron in the desert and said to them, 'Why did we not die at Yahweh's hand in Egypt, where we used to sit round the flesh pots and could eat to our heart's content! As it is, you have led us into this desert to starve this entire assembly to death!'

Yahweh then said to Moses, 'Look, I shall rain down bread for you from the heavens. Each day the people must go out and collect their ration for the day; I propose to test them in this way to see whether they will follow my law or not.

'I have heard the Israelites' complaints. Speak to them as follows, "At twilight you will eat meat, and in the morning you will have bread to your heart's content, and then you will know that I am Yahweh your God."'

That evening, quails flew in and covered the camp, and next morning there was a layer of dew all round the camp. When the layer of dew lifted, there on the surface of the desert was something fine and granular, as fine as hoarfrost on the ground. As soon as the Israelites saw this, they said to one another, 'What is that?' not knowing what it was. 'That', Moses told them, 'is the food which Yahweh has given you to eat.

   

Ephesians 4: 17, 20-24

So this I say to you and attest to you in the Lord, do not go on living the empty–headed life that the gentiles live. 

Now that is hardly the way you have learnt Christ, unless you failed to hear him properly when you were taught what the truth is in Jesus. You were to put aside your old self, which belongs to your old way of life and is corrupted by following illusory desires. Your mind was to be renewed in spirit so that you could put on the New Man that has been created on God’s principles, in the uprightness and holiness of the truth.

   

John 6: 24-35

When the people saw that neither Jesus nor his disciples were there, they got into those boats and crossed to Capernaum to look for Jesus. When they found him on the other side, they said to him, 'Rabbi, when did you come here?' Jesus answered:

In all truth I tell you,
you are looking for me
not because you have seen the signs
but because you had all the bread
   you wanted to eat.
Do not work for food that goes bad,
but work for food
   that endures for eternal life,
which the Son of man will give you,
for on him the Father, God himself,
   has set his seal.

    Then they said to him, 'What must we do if we are to carry out God's work?' Jesus gave them this answer, 'This is carrying out God's work: you must believe in the one he has sent.' So they said, 'What sign will you yourself do, the sight of which will make us believe in you? What work will you do? Our fathers ate manna in the desert; as scripture says: He gave them bread from heaven to eat.' Jesus answered them:

In all truth I tell you,
it was not Moses
   who gave you the bread from heaven,
it is my Father
   who gives you the bread from heaven,
the true bread;
for the bread of God
is the bread
   which comes down from heaven
and gives life to the world.

'Sir,' they said, 'give us that bread always.'
Jesus answered them:

I am the bread of life.
No one who comes to me will ever hunger;
no one who believes in me will ever thirst.
 

 

18th Sunday in Ordinary Time
August 6, 2006

INTRODUCTION:  (Exodus 16: 2-4. 12-15 Ephesians 4: 17. 20-24; John 6: 24-35) Last Sunday we heard about Jesus feeding a multitude of people (over 5000 men the gospel tells us) with five loaves of bread and two fish. It must have been a powerful experience as it is the only miracle recorded in all four gospels other than the miracle of Christ’s resurrection.  St. John gives us further indication of the magnitude of this miracle in that he tells us there were twelve baskets of left overs from the five loaves of bread and two fish.  It was impressive enough that the people wanted to make Jesus their king.  But Jesus did not want to be the kind of king they had in mind.  So he sent his apostles off in a boat and he went into the hills to be by himself and pray.  Later on that evening he joined his apostles which is a story all its own, for they were still in the boat and Jesus came to them walking on the water.  Today’s gospel begins when the crowd meet up with Jesus later on at Capernaum. 

The first reading gives us some historical background for the gospel.  It tells how God fed his people with manna 1300 years earlier on their way from Egypt to the promised land.  In the conversation the people are having with Jesus in the gospel they refer to the event of God feeding his people with manna in the desert. 

HOMILY: The clock in a restaurant window had stopped at a few minutes past noon.  One day a patron asked the owner, “Do you know that the clock in your window has stopped?”  The owner answered, “It hasn’t been working for months.  But you would be surprised to know how many people look at that clock, think they are hungry, and come in to get something to eat.”      

There’s more to life than satisfying our physical hunger.  That’s what Jesus is trying to tell people in today’s gospel.  He said, “You are not looking for me because you have seen signs but because you have eaten your fill of the loaves.”  A sign always points to something else.  An exit sign tells us how to leave a building or a parking lot.  Smoke tells us there is fire somewhere.  A no smoking sign tells us not to smoke.  Jesus wanted to tell people that the miracle of the loaves pointed to something more.  But they didn’t see that.  They didn’t know it was a sign.  They were content with having their stomachs filled. That’s why he said,  “You are not looking for me because you have seen signs but because you have eaten your fill of the loaves.”  They wanted only what they wanted, not what he wanted to give them.  In our relationship with God, we must ask ourselves, are we interested only in getting God to give us what we want, or are we willing to work so that God can give us what God wants for us?   

Notice how this word ‘work’ sneaks in here.  (It’s one of those nasty four letter words most of us don’t like to hear.)  Jesus said, “Do not work for food that perishes but for the food that endures for eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you.”  The people ask (and this is a literal translation of the Greek text), “What can we do to work the works of God?”  Jesus said, “This is the work of God, that you believe in the one he sent.”  Faith takes work.  It is not a cakewalk.  It is not for the faint hearted.  Keeping the commandments, praying when it feels like no one is listening, going to Mass when we would rather stay in bed, believing in what we cannot see, loving people who are not very lovable, forgiving those who hurt us, trusting that God really loves us when we feel the world is down on us, keeping our faith in the face of scandals in the Church.  These are some of the things that take real work.  We cannot accomplish anything really worthwhile in life without work – and that’s true of our faith too.  We’ll get out of our faith what we put into it.  The current attitude among many is that God is good and we’re all going to heaven in the end, no matter what, so why sweat it?  Well, God is good, and he tried to guide us in the right direction and he even died on the cross to help us get there, but God cannot save us if we are too lazy or too busy or too indifferent to do our part.    

There’s one other line in today’s gospel I want to call attention to.  Jesus said “Whoever comes to me will never hunger…”   It hurts to be hungry.  We have all felt it at times – not as bad as some people in other parts of the world – but we know what it feels like nonetheless.  If we didn’t feel that pain from time to time we would probably all starve to death.  There was a good article in Reader’s Digest last month entitled “Hungry all the time. How to turn off the switch.”  The point of the article was that there are certain foods we eat that significantly increase the feeling of hunger in us, and that cause us to overeat.  By avoiding certain foods we will be less hungry.  You can probably guess what those foods are.  They’re things like white bread, white rice, bagels, donuts, soft drinks, ice cream, sweet cereals, French fries, etc.  Our society offers us lots of spiritual junk food too.  It nourishes us momentarily but still leaves our inner person feeling empty and hungry for something more.  Jesus promises to fill our inner selves so that we can know true fulfillment and peace when he tells us “Whoever comes to me will never hunger…”  And that’s what brought us here today.  He is the true bread that gives life to the world.  Amen.

Tell My People

Messages from Jesus and Mary

as given to Fr. Edward Carter, S.J.

 
 

Reparation for Sin

Jesus: "My beloved priest-companion, tell My people that the ugly face of sin covers the earth as never before in the history of the human race. My image, which should shine forth brilliantly over the whole earth, is seriously marred by the hideousness of sin. My Father's justice demands reparation. Tell My people to offer their actions in reparation for all the sins whereby the Triune God is so much offended. My Heart cries out for reparation, especially for sins committed against My Eucharistic presence. My Heart hates sin, but loves the sinner. All who are sorry for their sins will find in My Heart overflowing graces of mercy.

"My people should receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation often, even if they have no serious sins to confess. The graces of this Sacrament give powerful graces for the fight against temptation. I am Lord and Master. Please do as I request!"

Reflection: In our determination to avoid sin, let us often recall the terrible sufferings which sin caused Our Loving Savior: the cruel crowning with thorns, the tearing of His sacred flesh by the soldiers' merciless scourging, the heartless hammering of nails through His sacred hands and feet, and all the rest. Who can prayerfully look upon the suffering Christ and not be repulsed by the hideousness of sin?

 


 

Consecration to the Hearts
of Jesus and Mary

Jesus: "My beloved friend, tell My people that I desire all to consecrate themselves to My Sacred Heart and to Mary's Immaculate Heart. Tell them not to just recite words in making the act of consecration, but to realize what they are saying. Consecration to Our Hearts means a total gift of self. It means handing over everything to Me and to My Mother. Consecration means a willingness to surrender completely to Me. In Baptism one is consecrated to Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. But how many fail to live out their consecration! I extend to all the invitation to renew this baptismal consecration through consecration to My Heart and to My Mother's Heart.

"My beloved companion, I have taught you what this consecration means. I have given you great peace, joy, and happiness because you have made this consecration. I have taught you that you are to renew this act of consecration each day, I constantly remind you that you are to pray each day for the grace to more and more live the consecration. I have taught you that your consecration to Me and My Mother means that you constantly surrender yourself to Us and to Our care. I have taught you that the more you surrender yourself to Me, the more I live in you and through you and for you. I have taught you that My great love for you longs to draw you more deeply into My Heart. I have shown you that I wish your Mother Mary to place you there within My Heart, and that the more you dwell within her heart, the more deeply she places you within My Heart. Dwelling within Our Hearts, the Holy Spirit fashions you more and more in My likeness. The Father thus looks upon you with greater favor and takes you more closely to Himself. Tell My people all these wondrous truths. I am Lord and Master, and I desire all to listen to My words!"

Reflection: In the above message, Jesus describes what is involved in living our consecration to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. What beautiful truths He puts before us! We know that the living out of our consecration is not always easy. Sometimes it is very difficult. At all times, and especially in most difficult times, we should remind ourselves how much Jesus and Mary love us, and that living out our consecration is our "thank you," our return of love.

Transcribed from a tape of a live rosary as Mary and Jesus appeared

Joyful Mysteries

 

The Annunciation

1.  R.  The angel Gabriel appeared to Mary and asked her to be the Mother of Jesus.

2.  R.  Mary always did the Will of the Father. She trusted totally in the Father and did exactly as she was told to do.

3.  R.  Mary was filled with the Spirit and the Word became flesh.

4.  R.  Fill us with your Spirit and lead us to closer union with Jesus. Help us to become one in Him so that we may know the Will of the Father. Dear Spirit dwell in us. Move in us. Fill us with the fire of Your Love. Help us to trust and have faith, to know that what we are doing is what we are being called to do by the Father.

5.  R.  And God imparted to them the Gifts of the Spirit: Wisdom, Knowledge, Understanding, Fear of the Lord, Fortitude. He came to them. He gave them the gift to know what He was calling them to do.

6.  R.  All peace and joy come from doing the Father's Will. When we know that we are connected and close to Jesus, our hearts are at peace.

7.  Isaiah 49: 14-15

Zion was saying,
    'Yahweh has abandoned me,
the Lord has forgotten me.'
Can a woman forget her baby at the breast,
feel no pity for the child she has borne?
Even if these were to forget,
I shall not forget you.

8.  Song:  Come Holy Ghost

9.  R.  Jesus calls us to total trust in His Most Sacred Heart.  He died on the cross for love of us. He will never abandon us and will take care of us at every single second. As our hearts beat and as we breathe, He is with us this very moment with His Heart on fire for love of us.

10.  R.  God loved this world so much that He sent His only begotten Son into the world to save us from our sins!

Song between decades:  Ave, ave, ave Maria

   

The Visitation

1.  R.  Mary made haste to the hill country to be with her cousin, Elizabeth. The angel had told Mary that her cousin Elizabeth, in her old age, had conceived a child.

2.  R.  Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit and cried out:

‘Of all women you are the most blessed, and blessed is the fruit of your womb. Why should I be honoured with a visit from the mother of my Lord?  Luke 1: 42-43

3.  R.  The servant usually goes to the Master, but Jesus, out of greatest love for us, comes to us.  It is out of love that He, Who is Almighty, comes to us in the womb of the Blessed Virgin Mary!

4.  R.  And Mary was filled with the Holy Spirit and cried out with a loud voice her Magnificat!

5. 

And Mary said:
My soul proclaims
the greatness of the Lord
and my spirit rejoices
in God my Saviour;   Luke 1: 46-47

6. 

because he has looked upon
the humiliation of his servant.
Yes, from now onwards
all generations will call me blessed,  Luke 1: 48

7.  Jesus:  Should a mother forsake her child, I will never abandon you! I am with you at every single moment. As you breathe, as your heart beats, I am here. You must totally surrender and trust in Me for I am truly Jesus Christ, the Son of God! You will not learn how to trust unless you let go! I am here with you this night and I ask you to surrender your all to Me, to let go totally and to know that I will lead you as you go on your path.

8.  Jesus:  Do not be afraid for I am forever by your side, guarding you, watching you, caring for you. You are My special soldier to spread My Love throughout this world. It is through your trust that you will be strong soldiers. Come to My Eucharistic Heart and know all that I have to give to you.

9.  Jesus:  I remain with you this day in the Eucharist, the same as the day that Mary carried Me in her womb. I am with you in My Divinity and humanity in the tabernacle. Put your trust in Me for I am truly God! I am the Master! You are My beloved souls! Trust in Me for I will never abandon you, My precious ones!

10.  Song:  O Holy Dwelling Place

Song between decades:  Ave, ave, ave Maria

 

The Birth of Jesus

1.  R.  Jesus calls to us to have faith, to believe the things that we cannot see. To believe with our whole hearts. It is His world and He runs this world. We must have faith in our hearts that He is forever with us and forever by our side.

2.  R.  Jesus will not abandon us, even in our darkest hour! When we are down, He is there looking into our eyes! This burning Heart of the Sacred Heart of Jesus forever with us! Forever ready to lead us closer and closer to Him and to follow the Plan of the Father! But it takes total commitment to Him and to do all the things that He is asking us to do.

3.  R.  The Father so loved this world that He sent His only Son into the world to be born!

4.  R.  Do we think that He would send His Son into this world and not be with us this day? Pray to the Father for all your needs, for the Father created you and loves you so dearly. He will open up your minds and hearts and you will know the plan for you. Pray to the Spirit to know only those things that God can impart to you for He is truly ready to tell you what God wants you to do!

5.  Jesus:  I call you to action! To spread the love of God throughout the land! For there are souls that will be lost if they do not know the love of Jesus!

6.  Jesus:  I send these messages not for two or three, but for all the souls of this world. I ask you to pray fervently to know the Will of the Father to spread these messages throughout the land!

7.  Song:  On This Day O Beautiful Mother

8.  Song:  Trust in the Lord

9.  R.  Give to us, O Holy Spirit, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, the faith and trust that we need to do the Will of God. Transform us more and more within the Heart of Mary, into the image of Jesus, God's Son, which will lead us ever closer to the love of our Beloved Father.

10.  R.  And Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was born a baby in a stable in the town of Bethlehem for greatest love of us!

Song between decades:  Ave, ave, ave Maria

 

The Presentation

1.  R.  Joseph and Mary and Jesus went to the Temple. Simeon, an old man, had received from the Holy Spirit, the knowledge that he would see the Messiah before he died. The Holy Spirit led him to the Temple and he held the Child Jesus and said that now he was ready to die.

2.  R.  But he told Mary of the sufferings that she and Jesus would undergo. And a sword, too, shall pierce your heart, O Mary!

3.  R.  From that point on, whenever Mary looked at her beloved child, she remembered the prophecy of Simeon and so her heart was constantly pierced by the sword for she knew of the sufferings that her little boy would undergo as she looked at Him.

4.  R.  How blind we are that we do not see! We want to see with our eyes when Jesus comes to us with the eyes of faith and asks us to trust and open up our hearts. It is in this faith and trust that we know Him more deeply. Look beyond the Consecrated Host and see the Divine Lord! For it is truly God that you experience when you receive Him in communion. There is such a presence, an overwhelming presence of the Divine Lord!

5.  Song:  Look Beyond

6.  R.  As Mary suffered all through the life that she shared with Jesus, think of these sorrows of Mary. Mary loves us and is with us this day. Mary walks by our side. She is truly our Loving Mother and she wants us to reach out and wants us to trust her and to realize that she will lead us ever closer to union with Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

7.  R.  The Presentation of the child Jesus in the Temple should remind us of our own baptism. We become children of God and heirs of Heaven! It is in Baptism that we are received into a special sharing in His life - our human nature is elevated. We are God's children. He loves us so much! He gives so much to us at Baptism!

8.  R. They pierced His Heart with a lance and what flowed forth was blood and water, the sacramental life of the Church, water for Baptism and blood for the Eucharist. His life, death and resurrection live on in the Church this day.

9.  R.  We do not even realize how gifted we are by our great God who is so good to us!

10. R.  Holy Spirit, the more we unite with Mary, our mother, transform us more and more into the image of Jesus and lead us ever closer to the Father.

Song between decades:  Ave, ave, ave Maria

 

The Finding of Jesus in the Temple

1.  R.  When Jesus was twelve years old He was taken up to the Temple for the feast of the Passover with Mary and Joseph.

2.  R.  When it was over, they had gone from the Temple and did not realize that the child Jesus had been left behind.

3.  R.  With such sorrow in their hearts, they returned searching the streets, looking all over for the child Jesus.

4.  R.  They found Him in the Temple teaching the doctors and all were astonished at His wisdom and answers!

5.  R.  Teach us Your truths, O Jesus! Dear Holy Spirit, release the gifts that we received in Baptism. Give us Wisdom, Knowledge and Understanding! Help us to know more and more the mysteries of our Divine God!

6. 

Excerpt from Response to God's Love, by Father Edward Carter, S.J.

   ...In reference to Christianity, God himself is the ultimate mystery. Radically, God is completely other and transcendent, hidden from man in his inner life, unless he chooses to reveal himself. Let us briefly look at this inner life of God.

    The Father, in a perfect act of self-expression, in a perfect act of knowing, generates his son. The Son, the Word, is, then, the immanent expression of God's fullness, the reflection of the Father. Likewise, from all eternity, the Father and the Son bring forth the Holy Spirit in a perfect act of loving.

    At the destined moment in human history, God's self-expression, the Word, immersed himself into man's world. God's inner self-expression now had also become God's outer self-expression. Consequently, the mystery of God becomes the mystery of Christ. In Christ, God tells us about himself, about his inner life, about his plan of creation and redemption. He tells us how Father, Son, and Holy Spirit desire to dwell within us in the most intimate fashion, how they wish to share with us their own life through grace. All this he has accomplished and does accomplish through Christ. St. Paul tells us: "I became a minister of this Church through the commission God gave me to preach among you his word in its fullness, that mystery hidden from ages and generations past but now revealed to his holy ones. God has willed to make known to them the glory beyond price which this mystery brings to the Gentiles—the mystery of Christ in you, your hope of glory. This is the Christ we proclaim while we admonish all men and teach them in the full measure of wisdom, hoping to make every man complete in Christ" (Col 1:25-28).

7.  R.  As you searched for the child Jesus in the Temple, dear Mary, help us on our search to know more about Jesus so that we may love Him and love the Father and the Holy Spirit more.

8.  R.  Dear Child Jesus, You Who are God, You Who are all Love, teach us more about Love! Our vision is so limited. Open up our hearts! Fill us with Your grace so that we may share more in Your Life to know and love You more every minute of our lives, to share more in Your Divine Love.

9.  R.  Draw us ever closer to the most abundant love of the Two Hearts that live in the mysteries of these rosaries: the Hearts of Jesus and Mary that love us so dearly and suffered so for greatest love of us! Draw us ever closer to these Two Hearts of such immense love!

10.  R.  You, Jesus, Who took on a human nature so that we might follow You! You, Mary you -- a human person! Help us to model ourselves more after you, Mary and You, Jesus, so that we may grow into the children that the Father created us to be!

Seven Sorrows of the Blessed Virgin Mary

1.  The Prophecy of Simeon.   Mary and Joseph take the child Jesus to the Temple and Simeon, the Prophet, tells Mary how she and Jesus will suffer. He says to her that a sword, too, shall pierce her heart!

2.  The Flight into Egypt.   Joseph was awakened after a dream that told him to take the child Jesus and flee to Egypt. So, in the middle of the night, he took Mary and the child Jesus for into Egypt to be protected from the wrath of Herod.

3.  The Loss of the Child Jesus in the Temple.   Joseph and Mary were searching for the child Jesus in the Temple, their hearts in such sorrowing to realize that the child Jesus was lost. And a sword, too, shall pierce your heart, O Mary!

4.  Jesus and Mary Meet on the way to the Cross.   And their eyes peer into one another's. Mary's eyes peered into Jesus' eyes. There was such intimacy between them. There is such intimacy between them this day. The union of their Two Hearts, the hearts that love us so dearly. See them as they look into each other's eyes. Jesus, with blood running down His face and crowned with thorns, with a cross on His back. Mary, with her face reddened from the tears that she shed for her beloved Son. She calls out today to come for His most ardent love. He truly is waiting and longing for us. And a sword, too, shall pierce your heart, O Mary!

5.  Jesus Dies on the Cross.   Jesus with His weakened, bloody, battered body dies on the cross against the darkened sky. Mary stands below and sees her Son as He hangs for three hours of agony to His death!

6.  Jesus is Taken Down from the Cross and Laid in Mary's Arms.    Mary receives the lifeless body of her Son into her arms after He is taken down from the cross.

7.  The Burial of Jesus.   When Jesus is locked in the Tomb, they were so happy because they thought they had locked Him away. But on the third day He rose triumphant because death has no power over Jesus!!!!

 

This rosary was prayed before Mary, in the statue of Our Lady of Sorrows. Rita, Cathy, Joe, Carol and Marty were present

Mary appeared so sweet looking -- so beautiful full of light -- she was all white, her head moved -- light flashed -- especially pinkish/purple light.

Jesus appeared.

Excerpt from Priestly Newsletter 1998 - ISSUE FOUR
 

    Shortly before he was to die from cancer, Joseph Cardinal Bernardin left us these inspiring words about peace: "It is the first day of November, and fall is giving way to winter. Soon the trees will lose the vibrant colors of their leaves and snow will cover the ground. The earth will shut down, and people will race to and from their destinations bundled up for warmth. Chicago winters are harsh. It is a time of dying.

    "But we know that spring will soon come with all its new life and wonder.

    "It is quite clear that I will not be alive in the spring. But I will soon experience new life in a different way...

    "What I would like to leave behind is a simple prayer that each of you may find what I have foundGod's special gift to us all: the gift of peace. When we are at peace, we find the freedom to be most fully who we are, even in the worst of times. We let go of what is non-essential and embrace what is essential. We empty ourselves so that God may more fully work within us. And we become instruments in the hands of the Lord."3

                        I am proud God called us to this Ministry
                        to spread His unfathomable love to the hungry souls-
                        to help renew the Church and the world and spread
                        the Consecration to help lead to this Age of the 2 Hearts —
                        the Age of great love

 

 

 

July 23, 2009   TODAY JESUS SAID                    

 

Jesus:
It will be 15 years since I gave this message.
I have taken those who pray the prayers deeply into My Heart
and Mary has taken you deeply into her heart.
On this special anniversary I would ask you again to continue praying these prayers in your home, in
churches, in schools and to have these statues with the glass from Mary's image with you as you pray.
 
Great miracles have been given for healing spiritually and physically to those who have prayed these prayers these past 15 years
and now I ask you to have these statues with the images as you pray.
Miracles in families for healing and return to the Churches have occurred from your prayers, I ask you now to have the statue with glass and pictures of My face, Our Lady of Clearwater and My Sacred Heart and Mary's Immaculate Heart.
Your world is in need of great grace to fight off the attacks of satan and I will pour out My grace to those who pray the prayers in the Prayer Manual and pray candle rosaries with the meditations in Blue Book 6 A, B, C.
 
I will be with you and Mary will be with you when you pray these rosaries we gave when I appeared and Mary appeared 14 years ago.
I give the waters in Clearwater for healing.
Included in the statues with the glass are to be My Sacred Heart Statues and
Mary in all titles and the Infant of Prague.
These statues for the glass are the ones that were
 
especially made for the Shepherds of Christ that the glass will be put in.
 
The Prayers are to be said all over the world.
Praying for the priests, the church and the world.
 
It is in praying the prayers that great grace will be outpoured as you pray for the priests, the Church and the world.
 
I desire the retreats to continue from both centers.
Special healing graces are outpoured as you pray for the priests, the Church and the world during these retreats on the 5th, 13th and the Sidney rosary.
 
There is special healing graces granted as you pray the rosary.
Use these meditations given in the Red Rosary Book, Blue Books, especially Blue Book 6 A, B, C.
 
Please on this 15 year anniversary make a new commitment to follow your vocation in the Shepherds of Christ.

 


October 13, 2003

    "I want to be an Apostle of
        the Sacred Heart for the
        Shepherds of Christ Movement.

    I thank God for His gifts to me
       and I want to serve and love
       God in this Movement.

    God help me to do Your will
        always and help me to spread
        this message and these prayers
        to the world. Help me to spread
        Your peace.

    Help me to be an instrument of
        love.

    Outpour your grace to me for
        this vocation in the Shepherds
        of Christ Movement."

 

 

Pledge again to your commitment - those who are apostles of My Eucharistic Heart praying for the intentions I gave to Fr. Carter.
 
I wish the messages I gave to Fr. Carter and Mary gave to him in Tell My People be circulated now extensively.
This small book must be reprinted
I also desire the homily book cycle C be circulated and printed before the new cycle begins for the next priestly mailing.
Pray for this homily book and the mailing.
 
I give to you directions to help take you more deeply into My Heart and My Mother's Heart.
You have been called by Me to lead the strayed ones home to My Heart.

   

Jeremiah 23: 1-6

‘Disaster for the shepherds who lose and scatter the sheep of my pasture, Yahweh declares. This, therefore, is what Yahweh, God of Israel, says about the shepherds who shepherd my people, "You have scattered my flock, you have driven them away and have not taken care of them. Right, I shall take care of you for your misdeeds, Yahweh declares! But the remnant of my flock I myself shall gather from all the countries where I have driven them, and bring them back to their folds; they will be fruitful and increase in numbers. For them I shall raise up shepherds to shepherd them and pasture them. No fear, no terror for them any more; not one shall be lost, Yahweh declares!
                                                                                                                      

   Look, the days are coming,
      Yahweh declares,
   when I shall raise an upright Branch
      for David;
   he will reign as king and be wise, 
   doing what is just and upright
      in the country. 
   
In his days Judah will triumph
   and Israel live in safety.
  And this is the name he will be called,
  ‘Yahweh–is–our–Saving–Justice.’ "

 

Help Me
I desire the Fatima grotto be placed outside the building in Clearwater ask Bob to do this.
I further desire the Shepherds of Christ to maintain and keep this building in Clearwater for the purposes I have stated.
Prayer Chapters, these priestly mailings, retreats, circulation of these messages to help bring about this era of peace promised by Mary at Fatima
and the era of the 2 Hearts
I promised to you in Tell My People.
This is My Movement
I am Jesus the Good Shepherd, Chief Shepherd of the Flock.
My Father sent Mary to deliver this messages at Clearwater.
Read Jeremiah chapters 20, 21, 22.
They would not listen.
I call you to this vocation to lead the strayed ones home to Me.

      Betty is a handmaid who has prayed in the

        China Church for 11 years. To get from her

        house to the church she uses a walker and

        must go over a creek and a little bridge.

        We wanted a little place she could rest

        by the Church. We need about $1,000 to

        make this happen. Can you help us?
