Exodus 12: 1-8, 11-14

Yahweh said to Moses and Aaron in Egypt, 'This month must be the first of all the months for you, the first month of your year. Speak to the whole community of Israel and say, "On the tenth day of this month each man must take an animal from the flock for his family: one animal for each household. If the household is too small for the animal, he must join with his neighbour nearest to his house, depending on the number of persons. When you choose the animal, you will take into account what each can eat. It must be an animal without blemish, a male one year old; you may choose it either from the sheep or from the goats. You must keep it till the fourteenth day of the month when the whole assembly of the community of Israel will slaughter it at twilight. Some of the blood must then be taken and put on both door-posts and the lintel of the houses where it is eaten. That night, the flesh must be eaten, roasted over the fire; it must be eaten with unleavened bread and bitter herbs.

This is how you must eat it: with a belt round your waist, your sandals on your feet and your staff in your hand. You must eat it hurriedly: it is a Passover in Yahweh's honour. That night, I shall go through Egypt and strike down all the first-born in Egypt, man and beast alike, and shall execute justice on all the gods of Egypt, I, Yahweh! The blood will be a sign for you on the houses where you are. When I see the blood I shall pass over you, and you will escape the destructive plague when I strike Egypt. This day must be commemorated by you, and you must keep it as a feast in Yahweh's honour. You must keep it as a feast-day for all generations; this is a decree for all time.

 

1 Corinthians 11: 23-26

For the tradition I received from the Lord and also handed on to you is that on the night he was betrayed, the Lord Jesus took some bread, and after he had given thanks, he broke it, and he said, 'This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me.' And in the same way, with the cup after supper, saying, 'This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Whenever you drink it, do this as a memorial of me.' Whenever you eat this bread, then, and drink this cup, you are proclaiming the Lord's death until he comes.

 

John 13: 1-15

Before the festival of the Passover, Jesus, knowing that his hour had come to pass from this world to the Father, having loved those who were his in the world, loved them to the end.

   They were at supper, and the devil had already put it into the mind of Judas Iscariot son of Simon, to betray him. Jesus knew that the Father had put everything into his hands, and that he had come from God and was returning to God, and he got up from table, removed his outer garments and, taking a towel, wrapped it round his waist; he then poured water into a basin and began to wash the disciples’ feet and to wipe them with the towel he was wearing.

   He came to Simon Peter, who said to him, ‘Lord, are you going to wash my feet?’ Jesus answered, ‘At the moment you do not know what I am doing, but later you will understand.’ ‘Never!’ said Peter. ‘You shall never wash my feet.’ Jesus replied, ‘If I do not wash you, you can have no share with me.’ Simon Peter said, ‘Well then, Lord, not only my feet, but my hands and my head as well!’ Jesus said, ‘No one who has had a bath needs washing, such a person is clean all over. You too are clean, though not all of you are.’ He knew who was going to betray him, and that was why he said, ‘though not all of you are’.

    When he had washed their feet and put on his outer garments again he went back to the table. ‘Do you understand’, he said, ‘what I have done to you? You call me Master and Lord, and rightly; so I am. If I, then, the Lord and Master, have washed your feet, you must wash each other’s feet. I have given you an example so that you may copy what I have done to you.

 

Holy Thursday
April 13, 2006

I have come across statistics, and I’m sure many of you have too, about memory: how the percent of what we remember from what we read and what we hear is rather small, while we remember a very high percent of the things we do. God, of course, knew that long before statisticians showed up on the face of the earth, and so in order that we would remember the things he wanted us to remember, he gave us things to do.

Our first reading this evening (Exodus 12, 1-8.11-14) took us back 1300 years before Christ, when the Hebrew people were on the run, fleeing slavery in Egypt, on their way to a new life of freedom in a promised land. While on their journey God revealed himself to them. He told them of the special love he would have for them and how they were to love him and love one another. And God did not want them to forget this, so he gave them something to do so that they would always remember. Their annual Passover celebration would help them remember what God had done for them and what God wanted them to do in turn. We heard in today’s first reading God telling his people: "This day shall be a memorial feast for you which all your generations shall celebrate with pilgrimage to the Lord as a perpetual institution."

We are not slaves of a foreign country like the Jews were 1300 years before Christ, but many of us still find ourselves on the run, having places to go, things to do, people to see and meetings to attend. God does not want us either to forget what he has done for us and what he wants us to do in turn. When we’re on the run all the time it’s very easy to forget these things. So God gave us things to do to help us remember.

Just as the Jews celebrated God’s love for them at a special meal, so it is at a special meal that we are to remember and celebrate God’s love for us. That meal is called the Eucharist (a word which means appropriately enough: "thanksgiving"). In tonight’s second reading (I Cor. 11, 23-26) St. Paul gives us the earliest written account of the Eucharist. We are to come together to eat and drink the body and blood of our Lord. And in this short passage we are told twice: "Do this in remembrance of me."

In tonight’s gospel we hear about another thing we are to do: "As I have done, so you must do…" (Jn. 13, 1-15). At the time of Jesus, people wore sandals and they didn’t have cars. Lots of animals traveled on the same roads people walked on, so you can imagine their feet got pretty dusty and dirty. If you came to someone’s house for dinner or they came to your house, it wouldn’t be pleasant for the guest to have to sit though a nice meal with smelly dirty feet. So it was standard procedure when a guest came, someone washed the guest’s feet, usually a servant, or if there were no servants, one of the children had that nasty job. The fact that the need no longer exists in this day and age does not mean we are off the hook when Jesus tells us "as I have done, so you must do…" There are lots of other gracious and hospitable and humbling things we can do for one another instead of washing feet. And so our foot washing tonight is a mere symbol to help us remember how we are to serve one another.

These two things we are to do, the celebration of the Eucharist and washing of the feet, not only help us remember what God has done for us but also what God expects of us in turn. And in these two things we have an expression of two virtues essential to our relationship with God: faith and love. Let me say a word about each one. First faith: I am sure your faith is tested every time you hear those words: "This is my body." "This is my blood." My faith is tested too. Every morning I am called to believe those words, believing that God has given to human beings, to people like me, the power to change bread and wine into the flesh and blood of Jesus Christ. It was a test failed by many people who initially followed Jesus. When Jesus first spoke to his followers about the Eucharist, St. John tells us many left him at that point. When they walked away he didn’t call them back to say they misunderstood him. He knew they were leaving him precisely because they did understand him. All he did was ask the apostles if they were going to leave too. We all know how Peter responded: "Lord, to whom would we go? You alone have the words of eternal life."

The second virtue essential in our relationship with God is love. Jesus had been doing a servant’s work all his life, healing and teaching, even to the point that sometimes he and his apostles couldn’t find time to rest or even to eat. In serving others, washing feet was probably a piece of cake for him. The hardest job he would have would happen on the next day when he would give his life for us. Is it possible we would ever have to go that far for one another? Sometimes. What mother or father wouldn’t put their life at risk for their child. And whenever I have the funeral of a veteran, I am always deeply moved when I see that American flag draping the casket. I am touched to realize that this person was willing to risk his or her life for me, for my safety and security and freedom. But even if we’re not called to give up our life for someone else, when we recall Jesus’ love it prompts us to respond by loving him more and by trying to be more loving toward one another.

Many of us feel that we’re running all the time. And so to help us remember there’s more to life than stress and pressure, Jesus gave us two things to do to help us remember. We are to share a special meal that will sustain us spiritually, just as the food we eat each day sustains us physically and we are to serve one another in humility and love. Tonight we remember when it all began.

Tell My People

Messages from Jesus and Mary

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

 
 

Mary, Model and Teacher of Love

Mary: "My beloved priest-son, I have led you to greatly increase your prayers and sacrifices for others. I have often reminded you of my teaching at Fatima—that many souls go to Hell because they have no one to pray and make sacrifices for them. My Immaculate Heart longs that all my little ones be saved. Tell my little ones that they must love their neighbor through prayer, sacrifices, and other ways, too. All should learn from me. My Heart is symbol, not only of my great love for God, but also of my tender love for all my little ones. Imitate my love for God and all my children. If you love Jesus and me, this means you also love all of God's children. Jesus died for all. You cannot exclude anyone from your love.

"My Heart is the perfect imitator of the Heart of my Son. I will teach you how to love the Father and all mankind after the example of Jesus. All my little ones, I long for you to come to my Heart so I can teach you the ways of love! I love you so much! Come to my Immaculate Heart. Pressed against my Heart, I will hold you in my arms. I will clothe you with my motherly and protective mantle. As I hold you close to my Heart, I will teach you the ways of love!"

Reflection: In the above message, our dear mother tenderly reminds us that the following of Jesus is summed up in love of God and neighbor.

 


 

"What I say to you in the dark, tell in the day-
light; what you hear in whispers, proclaim
from the housetops."
(Matthew 10:27)

The Two Hearts and Sanctity

Jesus: "My beloved priest companion, I and My Mother have given you a consuming desire to spread devotion to Our Hearts. Tell My people about the great riches contained in My Sacred Heart and Mary's Immaculate Heart! Tell My people that they live in the age of the Two Hearts. What I and My Mother said at Fatima has been gradually unfolding. The Fatima message is centered in devotion to Our Hearts. The triumph of Mary's Immaculate Heart, foretold at Fatima, is soon to take place. This triumph will coincide with the era of peace for the world which My Mother foretold at Fatima. This great new age of peace for the Church and the world will be characterized by the triumph of the Immaculate Heart and the reign of My Sacred Heart.

"Because this is the age of the Two Hearts, the quickest and surest way to sanctity is through devotion to My Heart and Mary's Heart. Such devotion reaches its highest point in consecration to Our Hearts. Within Our Hearts My people will be clothed with great graces! Their love for God and neighbor will deepen tremendously! They will be fired with a holy and burning desire to love God and neighbor in all their daily activities as guided by the Holy Spirit. Dwelling within Our Hearts, My people will long to help bring back an alienated world to conform to My Father's will.

"My friend, I and My Mother have allowed you to experience in an extraordinary way the riches contained in Our Hearts. Tell My people about these riches! Tell them that I and Mary long for them to come within Our Hearts! I am Lord and Master. Please listen to My words. Come to Our Hearts!"

Reflection: Jesus tells us that we live in the age of the Two Hearts, and that within His Heart and Mary's Heart we receive graces to raise us to great sanctity. What is sanctity? It is doing God's will out of love, and God's will is summed up in love of God and love of neighbor. In the above message Jesus refers to this love of God and neighbor. In the Gospel, Jesus expressed it in this way:

But when the Pharisees heard that he had silenced the Sadducees they got together and, to disconcert him, one of them put a question, "Master, which is the greatest commandment of the Law?" Jesus said, "You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and the first commandment. The second resembles it: You must love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments hang the whole Law, and the Prophets also" (Matthew 22:34-40).

Sanctity, then, is centered in love of God and neighbor. Thus, to grow in sanctity is to grow in love of God and neighbor. Jesus tells us in the above message that within His Heart and Mary's Heart we find the graces to achieve great sanctity. Dwelling within the Two Hearts, we receive the capacity to become tremendous lovers!

Sorrowful Mysteries

 
 

Song:  The Rosary Song

The Agony in the Garden

1.  R.  Put yourself in the garden with Jesus, in the darkened night. Be there as He kneels and sees before Him His entire Passion that is about to occur.

2.  R.  Jesus' Heart was in such anguish for all the souls that would treat Him so indifferently and neglect Him. He loved them so dearly! So many that turned their backs on Him. So many that ignored Him their whole lives.

3.  R.  Look at our world today! Look at the faces of the people that we see. Jesus loved the souls so much. He went through His bitter Passion and died on the cross for them! We must pray for these souls. We must spread the message of His great love throughout this world. We must have a close relationship with Jesus. He will use us to reach souls. The world is hurting.

4.  R.  Jesus saw before Him everything that He would experience through the entire Passion. His greatest agonies were not those agonies that He suffered to His body, but the agonies that He suffered to His Most Sacred Heart.

5.  R.  Jesus Christ, the Son of God, remains with us this day! God remains with us in His Divinity and humanity in the tabernacle! He saw before Him the endless hours that He would wait and wait for His most precious souls that He loved and how the souls would not come to the tabernacle to even be with Him.

6.  R.   Jesus waits for us, His precious souls, to be with Him. He waits day after day in the tabernacle out of greatest love for us. He waits. He is no less present than the day that He was in the garden. He calls out to us to come to Him. He pours out His grace to us in abundance when we come and sit in front of the tabernacle. Can we wait one hour with Him! We have twenty-four hours a day but we cannot spend one hour and be with Him. The hour of power! The hour that He gives us abundant graces. We are too busy for the Son of God!

7.  R.  Jesus' agony was so great that His sweat became as great drops of blood upon the ground.

8.  R.  Mary wants to lead us to the deep love of her Son. She wants us to have deep union with Him.

9.  R.  Jesus loves us so much. He gives us Himself, Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity in the Eucharist.

10.  Sing:  I Love You Jesus - verse 1

Song:  A Song from Jesus  - refrain

   

Jesus is Scourged at the Pillar

1.  R.  As a little innocent lamb led to the slaughter, they led Jesus to the pillar and they tied Him to the pillar.

2.  R.  Hear the blows as they hit Jesus' back and tore His flesh! Listen! Think of Jesus standing at the pillar and listen. Do you hear the beating of Jesus?

3.  R.  Jesus did not fight back! Jesus accepted all that they gave Him! He came to show us the way.

4.  R.  Jesus loved those who beat Him! Imagine the immense heartache that He suffered knowing that the very men that beat Him were the souls that He loved so dearly. They beat Him to their own exhaustion. Jesus gave His life for these men.

5.  R.  Jesus' body was covered from the top of His head to His feet with bleeding wounds that they had given to Him! But His greatest agonies were not the agonies that He received to His body, but the agonies that He received to His Sacred Heart for all the souls that would reject Him, treat Him indifferently, neglect Him. Many do not even think about Him. Many souls sin continually, many never turn to Jesus!

6.  R.  As He suffered so for our sins, He was comforted by the acts of love that we give to Him today.

7.  R.  Do we realize that Jesus came to this earth and took on a human nature. That He was born a baby for love of us! Do we realize that God the Father sent His only Son into this world so that we could be saved? Do we realize that Jesus, the Son of God, died for us?

8.  R.  Spirit of God, descend upon us! Open our eyes, where we are blind, let us see more with the vision of God.

9.  R.  Spirit of God, fill us with Your grace to know and love God more. Jesus stood at the pillar in a puddle of blood that He shed for love of us!

10.  Then he released Barabbas for them. After having Jesus scourged he handed him over to be crucified. Matthew 27: 26

 

Jesus is Crowned with a Crown of Thorns

1.  R.  Jesus' flesh was so wounded! Jesus was so covered with blood and they put on Him a dirty purple robe. They gave Him a scepter to hold. They pounded into His precious head a sharp crown of piercing thorns!

2.  R.  Red blood ran down His face! Jesus was crowned with thorns and bled so for love of us!

3.  R.  We do not know of the immense love that Jesus has for us. He came to this earth. He took on a human nature for love of us. He suffered through the Passion and shed blood! He calls us to come and spend time with Him. He is a burning furnace of endless love waiting to be so close to us. They spit on Him. They hollered at Him. Jesus took everything that they did to Him. He came to show us the way, to love those that persecute us. We complain many times when He gives us crosses.

4.  R.  Jesus wants us to meditate on His life and the life of His Mother so that we will more and more live the mysteries. Live the mysteries of His life!

5.  R.  Live the mysteries of the rosary in our daily lives. Our lives should be centered around the lives of Jesus and Mary. We should ask ourselves, "Would Jesus act this way?"

6.  R.  Jesus' way is not easy. Many times we say "This is too hard." We think we do not have to love that person. We complain about a person. How would Jesus treat that person?

7.  R.  Jesus took all the treatment that they gave to Him. He was the King of Kings! He was the Son of God! They spit on God!

8.  Jesus' way is the way of love, He is love, always love! He showed us how He treated those who persecuted Him and put Him to death! He always loved! He did not fight back. He loved those men dearly that scoffed at Him, that hit Him, that poked at Him. They finally crucified Him to His death!

9.  Song:  Crown Him with Many Crowns

10.  R.  Holy Spirit, transform us more into the image of Jesus so that we may be led closer to the Father.

Song:  Only this I want, but to know the Lord

  

Jesus Carries His Cross

1.  R.  They stood around Jesus! They poked at Him! He stood there with His hands tied, a look of perfect peace on His face! A look of such hatred and anger on their faces, poking at Jesus! But Jesus was at perfect peace. He knew the love of His Father!

2.  R.  They gave to Jesus a heavy cross that they put on His shoulder. It was so heavy that it felt as if His shoulder would break! He carried His cross without complaining. What does He ask of us? To carry our cross. "God, that is too hard", we may say. I could not do that! He walked with His cross on His back. He tells us to follow Him. We must be loving and carry our cross in love.

3.  R.  He died. He rose on the third day! In our sufferings we die and rise to new life, if we suffer with Him.

4.  R.  The same child Mary held in her arms was covered with blood and crowned with thorns. Mary watched Him with a cross on His back! See through her eyes! Jesus Christ, the Son of God, walked with this cross on His back for greatest love of us. He loves us this much. He wants us to come ever closer to His Most Sacred Heart, the Heart of endless, burning love.

5.  R.  Mary's eyes peered into the eyes of her Beloved Son Jesus. She saw Him in all His sufferings, and He saw her in all her sufferings. See through Mary's eyes! Put yourself there as He carried the cross on His back! Put yourself there and see the blood running down His face! Put yourself there and see Jesus Christ, the Son of God, Who walked with the weight of the sins of the world on His back for love of us!

6.  Song:  See the Eyes that Look at Mary

7.  R.  Mary wants us to draw ever closer to her Son. The more we grow in union with Him, the more we become one in Him, the more He operates through us. He wants to be one in us! He wants to love through us!

8.  R.  See Mary, see her as she watches her Son! She cannot help Jesus, her Beloved Child! Mary is our Mother, she leads us to Jesus. We must shine as lights in this world.

9.  R.  See through the eyes of Jesus' beloved Mother Mary. Jesus Christ, who loves us with the most tender Heart. He wants us to be ever closer to the burning furnace of His Heart on fire for love of us. He loves us so dearly. We seek. We wander. We roam. We look for all those things to fill us when the only thing that fills the hungry soul is the love of God.

10.  Song:  See the Eyes that Look at Mary

  

Jesus is Crucified and Dies on the Cross

1.  R.  See Mary as she holds the child Jesus in her arms and looks at His tender hands and feet. See Mary now as she stands under the cross and watches. She sees the nails they had pounded into His hands and feet.

2.  R.  Jesus and Mary's Hearts are the two Hearts of immense love! Mary has such love for each one of us! She suffered so! We cannot even imagine what it would be like to stand under the cross of our beloved son and watch him hang for three agonizing hours to his death!

3.  R.  Mary loves each one of us so much. Jesus loves us so much. Jesus longs and thirsts and waits for us to come and be with Him in front of the tabernacle. In our busy lives many do not make time to be alone with Jesus. Jesus is the Son of God! But He waits and longs for us.

4.  R.  Jesus is the Son of God! He gave His life for each one of us! He died on the cross! He gave His flesh! He gave His Blood! But He gives Himself today. God gives Himself to us creatures! He gives Himself to us to be in such union with Him in the Eucharist and we treat this so lightly. Jesus is truly God! He gives Himself to us and we run from His altar and take His presence so lightly!

5.  R.  Spirit, descend on us! Open our eyes so that we may see more and more as He sees. Jesus is truly present in the consecrated host.

6.  R.  Holy Spirit descend upon us! Open up our hearts. Fill us with Your wisdom and knowledge and Your understanding so that we may know more the things of God.

7.  R.  Jesus gave the last drop of His Blood and the last beat of His Heart! They punctured His head with sharp thorns! They pounded into His hands and into His feet gigantic nails! He gave His Body and His Blood. He gave His all for love of us. In total surrender, He spread His arms. Jesus asks us to love. He gave His all for love of us. He gave us so much. How can we turn away? How can we judge our brothers and hate our brothers? See Jesus as He hangs on the cross. He gave the last drop of His Blood and the last beat of His Heart for love of us. God sent His only Son into the world. We are all brothers in Christ. Jesus died for our brothers too.

8.  R.  Jesus hung to His death. They took His body down and handed His lifeless body to His Mother. Mary held the child Jesus in the Temple when Simeon prophesied that she and Jesus would suffer. She held that tender little baby and knew from that time on of the immense sufferings to come. Every time she looked at Jesus, she knew He would suffer. They gave Mary the blood-covered body of Jesus under the cross. Jesus gave His all. Mary suffered and Jesus suffered. He showed us the way to comply to the will of the Father. For to His death, He did the father's will. Mary always compiled to the will of the Father. It is in living according to the Father's will that we will all be happy. God wants us to be one. The Father created each one of us uniquely special with such love. He has had a plan from the day we were born for each and every one of us. He calls out to us today to join ourselves ever closer to the Heart of Jesus Christ for it is in this union that we will be led closer and closer to the love of the Father!

9.  Song:  At the Cross her Station keeping

10.  Song:  Were You There

This rosary was prayed before the statue of Our Lady of Sorrows just prior to the Friday evening prayer service at the Holy Spirit Center. A large group participated in the rosary. Mary 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?
