I Am Jesus, I Called You My Shepherds
Mary speaks: My children, I wish you to read thus:
"Because of the excitement caused by the apparitions, the civil authorities were so alarmed that they kidnapped the three young visionaries and put them in jail. The incarceration period included the day of August 13. Consequently, Our Lady did not appear to the children on this particular 13th. The authorities, fearing reaction on the part of the people, quickly released the children. Mary appeared to them on August 19 near Valinhos:
She told them she was greatly displeased by the action of the mayor. As a result, the miracle promised for October would not be as impressive as originally planned. (15)"
The above is taken from The Spirituality of Fatima and Medjugorje, by Fr. Edward Carter, S.J.
From some of the readings of the Mass August 19, 1998:
The word of Yahweh was addressed to me as follows, 'Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel; prophesy and say to them, "Shepherds, the Lord Yahweh says this: Disaster is in store for the shepherds of Israel who feed themselves! Are not shepherds meant to feed a flock? Yet you have fed on milk, you have dressed yourselves in wool, you have sacrificed the fattest sheep, but failed to feed the flock. You have failed to make weak sheep strong, or to care for the sick ones, or bandage the injured ones. You have failed to bring back strays or look for the lost. On the contrary, you have ruled them cruelly and harshly. For lack of a shepherd they have been scattered, to become the prey of all the wild animals; they have been scattered. My flock is astray on every mountain and on every high hill; my flock has been scattered all over the world; no one bothers about them and no one looks for them.
"Very well, shepherds, hear the word of Yahweh: As I live, I swear it - declares the Lord Yahweh - since my flock has been pillaged and for lack of a shepherd is now the prey of every wild animal, since my shepherds have ceased to bother about my flock, since my shepherds feed themselves rather than my flock, very well, shepherds, hear the word of Yahweh: The Lord Yahweh says this: Look, I am against the shepherds. I shall take my flock out of their charge and henceforth not allow them to feed my flock. And the shepherds will stop feeding themselves, because I shall rescue my sheep from their mouths to stop them from being food for them.
"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 shall bring them back from the peoples where they are; I shall gather them back from the countries and bring them back to their own land. I shall pasture them on the mountains of Israel, in the ravines and in all inhabited parts of the country. I shall feed them in good pasturage; the highest mountains of Israel will be their grazing ground. There they will rest in good grazing grounds; they will browse in rich pastures on the mountains of Israel. 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."
Jesus speaks: 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. Grace My Shepherds, I will give you the greatest graces for spreading these words to this earth and to your Church. I love you, I am Jesus Christ, the Son of Man, it is the Plan of the Father that Prayer Chapters are begun immediately and the Priestly Newsletter is given to all priests. The Voice of the Good Shepherd speaks through it.
Jesus speaks: I am Jesus, I have called you My shepherds to teach the world My word and My Commandments. I have given you this great authority, My priests, to change bread and wine into My Body and Blood. My beloved shepherd priests how tenderly I love you and wish you to obey Our Lady of Fatima. Please give your heart to My Mother. Please My priests, I ask you to consecrate your hearts to My Heart and the Heart of My Mother. I ask you to lead My people to give their hearts to Me. I ask that you will be one fold, dwelling in Our Hearts. I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I long to hold My little sheep in My arms and comfort and love them.
The Ten Commandments:
Jesus continues: I wish My people to obey the Ten Commandments as given to Moses. I love you so much, please My shepherds, honor, love and adore your God. I give you Myself in the Eucharist. I am offended by the way My great gift is treated. You do not come and pour your love out to Me. Many do not make reparation for their offenses against God. I wish you to offer sacrifice for your sins. I wish you to partake in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in thanksgiving, reparation, adoration and petition. I wish you My shepherds to love your God with your whole heart, your whole soul and your whole mind. I will shepherd My flock and lead them into one fold. All who have strayed to foreign lands will be led home to My Sacred Heart. You must give your hearts to Me. Oh, I say again and again, oh, I call out in such lament, My little sheep. I love thee so profoundly and you do not comprehend. It is love I come to give you in the Eucharist. It is love I wish from you. It is a love affair, the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. I want love, I give love, you bring this love to the world. You must pray for your Church and your world. I beg you My shepherds, My little sheep, My holy ones, I beg you My beloved earth to pray as never before. On this day, My Mother appeared at Fatima because the August 13, 1917 visitation she promised was blocked by the authorities. My churchmen you have been given the authority to shepherd My flock to lead them into one fold. I ask you to give your hearts to My Heart and the Heart of the pure Immaculate one. Your sacrifice will be a most pure offering when you give your hearts to Our Hearts. You will partake in the sacrifice of Calvary sacramentally made present on your altars in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in great oneness with your beloved God. I am the Good Shepherd, I laid down My life for My flock. I ask you My priests and My people to identify with Me in the Mass. I ask you to lay down your lives for the flock. I ask you to intercede all day in the Morning Offering by uniting your every action, your every breath to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass that great grace is released on the earth. I wish My priests to be so holy. I wish to be so united to My holy priests and My people. I wish you to pray the Prayer for Union with Jesus. My shepherds in the Shepherds of Christ, pray as never before for your Church and your world. Pray, pray, pray, please consecrate your hearts to Jesus and to Mary. The authority is given to you from your God, My beloved priests. Mary is the Mother of the Church. She has authority over her children, all authority coming from God.
I ask you to put the writing (1 Corinthians 15-26 Christ the first fruits) from the writing of the Assumption. Oh, I want you to be one, My beloved Church, one body, loving God and loving one another. Give Me your heart in the Heart of My Mother, Mary, and you will be united In great oneness.
I am Jesus, I love thee. I love you, My beloved flock. I love you. Include John 17:20-21.

My Mother Has Asked You to Pray
Mary speaks: My dear little children I love you.
Jesus speaks: My Mother has asked you to pray.
My Mother appears on the building in Florida.
She appeared at Fatima and told the children to pray, they did not respond and what followed was the devastating effects of World War II.
I am the Good Shepherd, My Heart will reign in all hearts. There will be a great time of peace in which men will love their God with their whole heart, their whole soul and their whole being. I will be their God and they will be My people. They will love God and love one another as the Father intends His children to do.
You smite My messenger, you do not treasure the gifts including My warning.
Men do not wish to turn from their evil ways and obey the Commandments and live by the word of God.
Many worship the molten calf. In the end all power will be under My feet. All power is given from God.
I speak as a gift to you. If you listen you will be wise for I am finished with your foolish ways. I speak to ask you to pray the prayers I give. I ask the prayers be listed here. The prayers of the Good Shepherd as in the Shepherds of Christ Prayer Manual. These prayers are available free of charge in small booklets.
My Mother has asked you to pray, she asks all the children to pray. When some are too sick to pray, some are very old and unable to pray she does not require them to pray.
She addresses all her children, letter A-Z, she wishes many to pray at 6:30 p.m., she wishes some to pray all through the day. This guideline was given by Mary that there would be continuous prayer throughout the world. This guideline was given that many would pray with the Florida people at 6:30 Florida time and others would be praying these prayers and the holy rosary all through the day. This is a guideline given from Mary to her children that they would pray, as is reasonably possible.
The more you pray, the more the world turns their hearts to Jesus and Mary, the more who consecrate their hearts to Jesus and Mary, the more the world will know peace and renewal.
I ask you to include the prayers of the Good Shepherd from the Shepherds of Christ Prayer Manual here. (Messenger: You will find these prayers at the end of this message.)
I further state this:
Mary said at Fatima that you must pray the rosary. How is this observed over 80 years later? Mary said that until a sufficient number of people have consecrated their hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, you will not have peace in the world.
She is the Queen of Peace. You must observe the First Saturday devotion and make reparation to Our Hearts for the offenses against Our Hearts.
It has been a great gift that you have received these daily messages from heaven. I ask you to pray as never before and give your hearts to Our Hearts.
I ask you to thank God for all the gifts He has given to you. I am Jesus. I love you.
The Imprimi Potest and Imprimatur have been given for the following prayers, not for the message above.

5. The Memorare. "Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your help, or sought your intercession was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto you, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother. To you I come, before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but, in your mercy, hear and answer me. Amen."
6. Seven Hail Marys in honor of the Seven Sorrows of Mary. Mary has promised very special graces to those who do this on a daily basis.

Give them the grace to respond to Your love and Mary's love with an increased love of their own.

Amen."
"Angel of God, my guardian dear, to whom God's love commits me here, ever this day be at my side, to light and guard, to rule and guide. Amen."
15. Pause for silent, personal prayer. This should last at least five minutes.
16. Act of consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
"Lord Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the flock, I consecrate myself to Your most Sacred Heart. From Your pierced Heart the Church was born, the Church You have called me, as a member of Shepherds of Christ Associates, to serve in a most special way. You reveal Your Heart as a symbol of Your love in all its aspects, including Your most special love for me, whom You have chosen as Your companion in this most important work. Help me to always love You in return. Help me to give myself entirely to You. Help me always to pour out my life in love of God and neighbor! Heart of Jesus, I place my trust in You!
"Dear Blessed Virgin Mary, I consecrate myself to your maternal and Immaculate Heart, this Heart which is symbol of your life of love. You are the Mother of my Savior. You are also my Mother. You love me with a most special love as a member of Shepherds of Christ Associates, a movement created by your Son as a powerful instrument for the renewal of the Church and the world. In a return of love, I give myself entirely to your motherly love and protection. You followed Jesus perfectly. You are His first and perfect disciple. Teach me to imitate you in the putting on of Christ. Be my motherly intercessor so that, through your Immaculate Heart, I may be guided to an ever closer union with the pierced Heart of Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the flock."
17. Daily Prayers. All members should say the Holy Spirit prayer daily and make the act of consecration daily. They should also pray the rosary each day. They are encouraged to use the other above prayers as time allows.

Pray for This Special Coming of the Holy Spirit on Your Church and Your World
Jesus speaks: It is that they were gathered in one room praying for the coming of the Holy Spirit.
It is that your earth must be gathered at one time and one place praying for the coming of the Holy Spirit and He will descend on you the children of Mary and give you great light. You will know God as never before. But my children He will not come in a special way until you have gathered and prayed for Him to come.
The children of Eve must show to God that they are docile and wishing the hand of God to move in them.
God has all the power, He has all the authority, He has given power and authority to you.
You have misused the power and authority He has given you. Until you are gathered, pleading as the children of Eve for the renewal of the Church and the world, praying the rosary as Mary has requested at Florida, the Holy Spirit will not descend in the great whirlwind upon you.
You must comply to the Lady's wishes. She is your Mother. She is the Queen of Peace. You must pray as instructed. These are guidelines that will help man show sorrow for their sins and that will help them make reparation to God for the offenses against Him.
I give you My word and the Commandments. The word will be planted deep within your heart and soul. Man will live according to God's law in the Commandments. It is a covenant that man makes with His God, to love Him with his whole heart, his whole soul and his whole mind. It is in obedience to the Commandment to love God this way and to love your neighbor as yourself.
It is My word I use here to teach you, it is the Commandments that God gives to the children of the earth.
Sinful man will show to God their loyalty and their love. They will make recompense for their sins.
God has dominion over the earth, man is subject to Him.
I am the Alpha and the Omega, I am your God. I come amongst the clouds of glory to the thirsty barren earth below.
I am Jesus, the Son of God.
Messenger: And the glory of the Lord shown on high and they did not recognize Him for they had their heads buried in the sand.
Jesus speaks: And I give you Myself in the Blessed Sacrament and I am ignored.
Thus says the Lord of hosts, I am coming, I am coming soon.
And as morning steals across a darkened sky, the light of seven suns will shine in the hearts of men; they will throw away their polluted rags and the molten calf and they will rise up in one voice and cry from the depth of their soul.
HOSANNA, HOSANNA, HOSANNA in the highest to Him Who is, Who was and Who will come in the greatest glory to the sinful children of Eve.
I come amidst the clouds and all will see Me and recognize Me, even those who pierced Me.
Hosanna in the Highest, I am God, worthy of all honor, praise and glory.
Do not fear My messenger for those who smite you, for they smite Me when they smite you and I am coming, lo, I am coming, in a cloudburst the earth will shake and God will appear in His glory.
I give you this command to pray for this special coming of the Holy Spirit on your Church and your world.
I ask you to circulate the Holy Spirit Novena.
All must be gathered and praying in one heart and He will descend mightily upon you.
For they cried out to the hills to fall upon them, for they were in such anguishing pain, they wished it soon to be over.
Before that great day of victory, I mounted the cross, I hung on it and I died.
I am your God, I walked the hill of Calvary, I was crucified, I rose victorious on the third day.
Come out of your tombs, I call you. It is in consecration of your hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary that you will see the light and love and worship your God.
Sing: A Song from Jesus
Messenger: I was awaken early with this writing, I went to Mass at 11:30 a.m. and these were the readings: Ezekiel 37: 1-14 and Matthew 22: 34-40.

I Am Begging You to Come to the Tabernacle As An Apostle of the Eucharistic Heart
From God the Father: On this special Feast, I implore you as Your Heavenly Father to include the Message from My Son Jesus, July 21, 1998.
I further implore you to display here the information for the Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus.
The power my chosen ones is in the Eucharist, the power is in Him.
My Son Jesus is truly present and with you this day no less present than the day He walked the earth.
My Son Jesus remains with you Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity in the Holy Eucharist.
You abuse this great gift God has given to man. You worship a molten calf and ignore my Son Jesus truly present.
I teach you through my Son Jesus. He is the mediator between God and man.
Jesus came to the earth, He died and He rose on the third day. He remains with you this day.
He will be honored and adored by sinful man, He will be worshipped, men will fall to the earth on their faces in loving worship of Him.
Now is the time for the light to be given to this earth. The power is in the Eucharist. The power is in your prayers to Him, my beloved Son truly present there.
I ask this information be presented on this Feast of my beloved daughter Mary.
I wish all Blue Book Messages to be distributed and displayed on the internet.
You must help those distributing this material that my Son Jesus has given to you, intense, personal, love letters to you from the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus.
Your world is on a fine line, it is in the release of grace from heaven that you know your God.
I am the Father, I am teaching you through My Son Jesus and My daughter Mary. My Son is the Teacher, My Son is your friend, in Him you know God through the power of the Holy Spirit.
He is the mediator between God and man, He is Jesus, the Son of God, God made Man. You pray to the Father in the Holy Spirit in union with the Son, God made Man, truly present and with you this day.
I am angered at man, they run to amusement parks and wait in lines for a quick thrill, they stand in lines for rock stars and movies and men they have made gods and the churches are locked and the King is alone on His throne. There is not a man to worship Him. How many tabernacles have been moved where the center of the sanctuary has become a chair and my Son Jesus is put in a corner?
He will reign in the hearts of men, He will reign on this earth. All power will be under His feet. He will be recognized as their God, they will love Him, they will be His people.
My Son Jesus is your King.
Message of July 21, 1998:
Jesus speaks: My beloved Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus,
I write to you My chosen apostles for you are the Apostles of My Sacred Heart. I write to you because of My immense love of you and of all souls. I am hungry for the souls to come to me and to taste My love. I want them to drink from the cup of salvation, I want them to taste of the glory of the Lord.
I wash you in My precious Blood and I lift you to My tender cheeks and caress you. My little children of Eve, how tenderly I love you and long for you to come to Me and to pray to Me.
I wait for that soul, the one I love so much to come to Me that I might shower you with My gifts. I long for you to come that I might caress you and comfort you and outpour My life to you.
Oh chosen one, you know the glory of My Sacred Heart, you know the love that waits for you when you come before the tabernacle. But, I come to you now with My Heart in My hand for the precious souls I love, I come and I cry to you for My Shepherds of Christ Movement. It is through My grace that the world will be turned from hearts of ice to hearts warm with fervent love of God and all.
You are a major piece of the Father's Plan. It is through your intercessory prayer that I release great grace on your world and your Movement.
I am crying out to you, the Almighty God as one crying in a desert land. Your world is on a fine line, I am calling out to you for your prayers. I am begging you to come to the tabernacle as an Apostle of the Eucharistic Heart and pray the rosary and the prayer of the Good Shepherd (the prayers in the Prayer Manual), the prayers I have given to you for the renewal of the Church and the world. I come to you begging you to pray. You do not know the power of your heartfelt prayers.
I ask you once again to pledge the two hours weekly for the Church and the world and the intentions, all intentions of the Shepherds of Christ Movement. It is grace My sons, it is My power. It is your prayers that will help to accomplish what My Mother wished to accomplish at Fatima.
Please I beg you, My Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart, help Me to reach the souls of this earth. Include in your intentions, all intentions of the Shepherds of Christ Movement.
I want you, I long for you to come to Me. Thank you for your commitment to be an Apostle of the Eucharistic Heart. Your life will change, you will grow in your union with Me when you fulfill your commitment as I have asked you to do as a special Apostle of the Eucharistic Heart.
Please try to help Me expand this Movement to others. Encourage others to join, I love you so much My chosen one and I thank you from the bottom of My Heart.
I am Jesus your Savior.
Apostles Manual entry about the Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus
My dear fellow Associate Members,
There is a new prayer movement which has been started under the direction of Shepherds of Christ Ministries. We are 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 given. 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.
This new prayer movement within the Shepherds of Christ Ministries is a powerful way to help in the renewal of the Church and the world. The name, Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus, has been given to this movement.
Rita Ring is the coordinator for this activity.
This is indeed a special calling for us to unite in one heart with His Eucharistic Heart and pray for the following intentions:
- 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.
- For the Pope.
- For all bishops of the world.
- For all priests.
- For all sisters and brothers in the religious life.
- For all members of the Shepherds of Christ Movement, and for the spread of this movement to the world.
- For all members of the Catholic Church.
- For all members of the human family.
- For all souls in purgatory.
Jesus wants so much for us to come and be with Him. He is no less present in the tabernacle than the day He walked the earth. He will listen to our heartfelt prayers as Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus. His Heart beats in deepest love for us. How He loves His beloved priests and religious. He wants us to come to the Blessed Sacrament and pray to Him for them. Our prayers are especially powerful when we are before the tabernacle.

Pray the Prayer for Union with Jesus
Mary: My dear children,
I am Mary your Mother. I promised to teach you to pray. I ask you this day to pray this prayer my Son Jesus gives to you. It is the Prayer for Union with Jesus. I ask you to pray this prayer all through the day. I ask you to memorize this prayer and to pray it with one another. I ask you to hold hands and pray the prayer.
I ask you to pray for my Son's Movement, the Shepherds of Christ Movement.
I am Mary your Mother, I appear to draw my children to me that I may take them to my Son Jesus.
Remember this my children, no matter how you feel inside, my Son Jesus truly loves you and wants to be with you now. Pray to Him. Pray the Prayer for Union with Jesus.
I love you,
I am your Mother,
The following Imprimatur applies only to the Prayer for Union with Jesus, not to the message above.
Come to me, Lord, and possess my soul. Come into my heart and permeate my soul. Help me to sit in silence with You and let You work in my heart.
I am Yours to possess. I am Yours to use. I want to be selfless and only exist in You. Help me to spoon out all that is me and be an empty vessel ready to be filled by You. Help me to die to myself and live only for You. Use me as You will. Let me never draw my attention back to myself. I only want to operate as You do, dwelling within me.
I am Yours, Lord. I want to have my life in You. I want to do the will of the Father. Give me the strength to put aside the world and let You operate my very being. Help me to act as You desire. Strengthen me against the distractions of the devil to take me from Your work.
When I worry, I have taken my focus off of You and placed it on myself. Help me not to give in to the promptings of others to change what in my heart You are making very clear to me. I worship You, I adore You and I love You. Come and dwell in me now.

I Love You So My Children, Pray the Morning Offering
Mary speaks: The message is this my beloved children, the Sacrifice of Calvary is sacramentally made present in the Mass.
When you pray the Morning Offering united to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, you act as great intercessors pleading to your God, and the greatest graces are released all day in your every action, if you are acting in love, according to the Father's will. If you are eating, or sleeping, or taking care of your sick father or having fun with a friend, if it is God's will and you are acting in love, you can receive the greatest graces. Unite all you do every day to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass as you are in union with the Father in the name of Jesus, in the Holy Spirit, aided by my intercession.
I ask you to pray this way. I am giving to you the Morning Offerings my Son Jesus gave to the Shepherds of Christ children. There is a short Morning Offering and a long Morning Offering.
I ask you to pray this prayer every day that the greatest grace is released in everything you do while you are trying to do God's will in love. I ask you to pray in this Morning Offering for the renewal of the Church and the world and for the Reign of the Sacred Heart and Triumph of my Immaculate Heart. I ask you to pray for the Shepherd of Christ Movement which is trying to do what I requested at Fatima.
I ask you to include these two Morning Offerings here.
You are not receiving the greatest graces you could be receiving because you do not know how to pray.
I am your Mother and I wish to teach you to pray.
Please pray the Morning Offering every day, and watch your life change. You will be helping the whole world, when you pray as I instruct you.
I am Mary your Mother.
I love you so my children, pray the Morning Offering.
The following Imprimatur applies only to the Morning Offering, not to the message above.
My dear Father, I offer You this day all my prayers, works, joys, and sufferings in union with Jesus in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass throughout the world, in the Holy Spirit.
I unite with our Mother Mary, all the angels and saints, and all the souls in purgatory to pray to the Father for myself, for each member of my family, for my friends, for all people throughout the world, for all the souls in purgatory, and for all other intentions of the Sacred Heart.
I love You, Jesus, and I give You my heart. I love you, Mary, and I give you my heart.
The following Imprimatur applies only to the Morning Offering, not to the message above.
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.
I ask Jesus and Mary to be one in me in all that I do and I unite with all the angels and saints and souls in purgatory to pray continually to the Father for these intercessions, in this prayer, for this day.
For myself, I pray for grace-abundant grace, to know and love God more and more and to follow the will of the Father. I pray to the Holy Spirit to transform me in the heart of Mary to be more and more like Jesus. I pray that I can forever dwell in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. I pray for conversion of all those I hold dear who need conversion. I pray for each member of my family that they will be filled with Your abundant grace to grow in their knowledge and love of God.
I pray for all my friends that they will receive abundant grace to carry out the great plan of the Father, that they will grow forever closer to Jesus' Heart through Mary's heart, that we will all be led by the Holy Spirit to do His work, that we will, together, carry out the plan of the Father as He intends us to, to spread the love of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Mary's heart to this world.
Jesus, I pray for myself so the Holy Spirit descends upon me and opens my heart to Your love so I will grow more and more deeply in union with You. I pray that I do not worry what other people think but try always to please the Father and do His will. I pray that I may help lead many to Your burning love.
I pray for the following people in particular that they will be filled with the Spirit and grow deeply in their union with You, that they will receive abundant graces to know, love and serve You more. (Include special friends by name...)
I pray for priests the world over, for the success of the Priestly Newsletter, the Chapters and for the finances needed for the Newsletter. I pray for the circulation of the Blue Book messages, rosary meditations and tapes. I pray for all those involved in the publication of these messages.
I pray that You will shower Your abundant graces onto the priests reading the Newsletter the people reading and hearing the Blue Book messages and Rosary Meditations and all of Fr. Carter's publications.
We pray for the intentions we hold deep within our hearts, for our families and friends, for those requesting our prayers. We pray for children the world over and for the souls in purgatory. 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.

Carry the Cross with Your Loved Ones
Mary speaks: My children,
Today my Heart is in great sorrow for my little children that do not know God. So many of my sons and daughters will go to hell forever because they lead lives of sin.
Help my aching heart, my children, please help me with my mission here. I give you the Commandment of your God, it is to love God with your whole heart, your whole soul and your whole being and to love one another as yourself.
Be kind my little children, share one anothers' burdens, carry the cross with your loved ones, do not turn them away when they come to you crying for help, tell them you love them and be loving to them.
These are the commandments of your God. I love you, I am the Virgin Mary, your Mother.
