                What does the Shepherds of Christ mean to me —
                I thank You God for my vocation in the
                    Shepherds of Christ.

                When I needed the Shepherds of Christ it was there to
                    guide me and love me.

                The Father gave us the Building of the
                    2 Hearts and people all over
                    the world know about this
                    building and Mary's image

                Now we have had a special gift
                    in putting the glass in the
                    precious Fatima statue and
                    praying the prayers with the
                    statues has helped many they
                    believe to receive special
                    favors for their family and for healing.

                    Thank You God for the Jesus and Mary
                water — We rejoice at such a precious
                gift — two wells on the property
                where the image appeared and
                with prayer many have said the
                waters has helped them.

                    The list goes on and on 5,000,000
                newsletters sent to cardinals,
                archbishops, bishops and priests
                in 13 years spreading the consecration
                to the two Hearts.

                    Prayer chapters all over the
                world begun in 6 languages
                praying for the priests, the Church
                and the world which I believe
                really that God has outpoured
                His grace as He says in this message
                13 years ago tomorrow given to
                Fr. Carter.

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)


                    We are able to send about 200,000
                rosaries, homemade yearly, to
                Catholic schools.

                    We spread the Morning Offering
                in nursing homes, homes and

                    The Blue Books are a constant
                companion for so many.

                    It is time to recognize Jesus has
                called you to a commitment to
                help pray and support this
                Movement as you are able.

                    We are a family — united
                in prayer — going to the Blessed
                Sacrament so frequently and as
                we are saturated more and more
                with His grace in us — we
                help to strengthen the world and
                the Church — with our lives
                given —


John 15: 1-8

I am the true vine,
and my Father is the vinedresser.
Every branch in me that bears no fruit
he cuts away,
and every branch that does bear fruit
     he prunes
to make it bear even more.
You are clean already,
by means of the word
     that I have spoken to you.
Remain in me, as I in you.
As a branch cannot bear fruit all by itself,
unless it remains part of the vine,
neither can you unless you remain in me.
I am the vine,
you are the branches.
Whoever remains in me, with me in him,
bears fruit in plenty;
for cut off from me you can do nothing.
Anyone who does not remain in me
is thrown away like a branch
—and withers;
these branches are collected
     and thrown on the fire
and are burnt.
If you remain in me
and my words remain in you,
you may ask for whatever you please
and you will get it.
It is to the glory of my Father
      that you should bear much fruit
and be my disciples.


                    We live in Him

                    We are more people of love —

                    Love goes to the ends of the

                    Love depends on a heart
                        that is not sealed shut
                        with hidden bitterness

                    Love gives

                    Love does not want others
                        to suffer

                    Love is in deep communication
                        with God

                    Love recognizes the gifts God
                        has given and thanks God

                    Love lives in the Father's will

                    Love is why we were created
                        and no person on earth will
                        ever satisfy the longing
                        in us for God and

                    We won't be satisfied here
                        below —
                        We are always thirsting
                            for God

                Love finds a way

                Love pursues difficulty

                I love the Shepherds of Christ

                And I thank God every day for
                    this calling.

                Jesus went like a runner to
                    the cross — loving His
                    precious souls —

                    can I give less of my life
                    for the souls He died for.

                Some of us may not see spring or
                    even the next 5 years —

                    What are we holding onto
                when souls are at stake?

                    God has called you in
                some way — prayer, support
                etc. to be a part of the Shepherds of Christ

                    Embrace your vocation with
                        joy — for the priests,
                        the Church and the world.

                    Say thanks with Love




A message for the Earth from Jesus

    I am the Good Shepherd, these are My prayers, the prayers I give to help renew the Church and the world, all prayer chapters are asked to include these prayers (found in the Shepherds of Christ Prayer Manual). As My Apostles and Shepherds I ask you to encourage all existing Chapters to try to encourage all existing prayer groups to pray the Shepherds of Christ prayers. Encourage all Churches to pray these prayers. It is most urgent that the people of this earth concur with the Father's wishes to begin Prayer Chapters. This is an urgent request from the Good Shepherd. The flock will become one when they have given their hearts to Jesus and Mary. Encourage all priests to pray the Shepherds of Christ prayers. Your world will be lighted with great light as the people of this earth pray these prayers.

    My promise is this to you My beloved earth: When you give your heart to Me and spread the devotion to My Sacred Heart, I will write your name In My Heart. I promise to give the greatest graces when you pray these prayers for renewal of the Church and the world and take all who pray them deeply into My Heart. The prayers I give will bring about the reign of My Sacred Heart and the triumph of Mary's Immaculate Heart. I am Jesus Christ, this is My message of January 22, 1998, Please circulate this message to your world. I am the Good Shepherd, I know Mine and Mine know Me and they follow Me.

The Voice of the Good Shepherd speaks through it.

Message #2 To The Earth —

August 1, 2005

From Jesus 

                            I promise to those priests who pray
                            My prayers for the priests, the Church
                            and the world and for reparation to Our
                            Two Hearts for the offenses against them —

                            I promise great grace to lead you into
                                such a deep union with Me — to know
                                oneness with God as you have never
                                known in your whole priesthood.


                            To My priests I give this promise, the more
                                you pray the prayers I have given —

                                             Red Prayer Manual

                                and the more you pray them yourselves —
                                you will know such grace in
                                your priestly life as never before and
                                touch the hearts of the young and
                                lead them to follow their vocation if
                                called to the priesthood.

                                I promise through the hands of My
                            Apostle priests to help lead holy
                            men to Me in the priesthood and
                            to thereby help to alleviate this
                            terrible atrocity of the shortage
                            of priests.

end of August 1, 2005


Prayer of St. Francis

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love.
Where there is injury, pardon.
Where there is doubt, faith.
Where there is despair, life.
Where there is darkness, light.
Where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled, as to console;
to be understood, as to understand;
to be loved, as to love;
for it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned.
It is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
