Messenger:        The Mass and the Eucharist means so much
                                to me.
                            From my time there I experience so
                                much love for everyone else.

Jesus speaks:     I ask you to use the tapes.
                               The rosary tapes and other tapes and
                                    Fr. Carter's tapes. Use them
                                    daily. The devil will work in
                                    your minds to divide you.
                                    Listening to these tapes daily,
                                    reading the Blue Books
                                 will help you so you do
                                    not give into him.

                                Stay united, pray as a body,

                                    Plan of the Father  do not
                                    give into satan to stop you.

Don't Ever Close Your Heart

God's Blue Book I Cover

Excerpt from November 2, 1993 - 4:00a.m.

Jesus speaks: ...Just be open to all I send you and cast your doubts away. It is your act of trusting that helps you develop trust in Me. Step-by-step you ascend the stairs and you get closer each time to trusting more in Me. It is your taking each little step that counts. Ascend My steps each day, every day. A million times a day you can trust or worry. You choose, "Do I trust or not trust?" How could you not trust after all I did to prove My love for you? Focus on My passion, on My wounds, on My love, on Me, the one, true God, Who loves you this much! You are precious to Me, My little baby. Come and let Me comfort you. Lose yourself in My arms....

Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus


    The Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus is a prayer movement which is 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 invited to join this movement.
    These apostles are to pray for the intentions given below. For part of the hour, you must use the prayers in the Shepherds of Christ Associates Handbook.  You may spend the rest of the hour as you so choose.
    This 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.
    This is indeed a special calling for you to unite in one heart with His Eucharistic Heart and pray for the following intentions:
  1. For the spread of the devotion to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary culminating in the reign of the Sacred Heart and the triumph of the Immaculate Heart.
  2. For the Pope.
  3. For all bishops of the world.
  4. For all priests.
  5. For all sisters and brothers in the religious life.
  6. For all members of the Shepherds of Christ Movement, and for the spread of this movement to the world.
  7. For all members of the Catholic Church.
  8. For all members of the human family.
  9. For all souls in purgatory.
    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.
    If you feel Jesus is calling you to be an apostle of His Eucharistic Heart, please complete the membership form. Please circulate this brochure and the sign-up forms. This is a call to priests, sisters, and laity, including children. The Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus do not have to be a member of the Shepherds of Christ chapters. There is such power in His Eucharistic Heart. Let us join one another and answer this call today. Adoration should begin as soon as possible.
    Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus will receive the Shepherds of Christ Newsletter. It is very important to send in the membership form as soon as possible so we can send you the newsletter and any new information about the Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus.
    As apostles, we will receive abundant graces from God and help bring about the renewal of the Church and the world. May you know the burning love of His Heart.

Dear Friends,

Unable to reach you by the toll free phone
number, I am writing to ask a question
regarding a book mentioned in your recent
issue of SHEPHERDS OF CHRIST - 2001
Issue 2. This issue was magnificent and I was
most inspired by the excerpt from Fr. Carter's
book on the Sacraments and the Mass! The
name of the book was given - RESPONSE IN
CHRIST - but I did not find any information
indicating the cost and possibility of purchasing
a copy. I was also wondering how expensive
(# of pages and coverage, hardback or paper/
soft bound, etc.) We were very interested in
perhaps ordering a copy but need to know,
especially the cost, at this time before doing so.

Thanking you for your marvelous apostolate,
assuring you of our prayerful support and
hoping to hear from you in the near future, I

Gratefully yours in the Passion,

Mother ___________

Subject: Application for the Magazine Shepherds of Christ Ministries

I am Fr. F. the Parish Priest of ____ Catholic Parish. I came across the magazine Shepherds of Christ Ministries and found it very educative, informative as well as challenging. It is for this reason that I am applying to you for every copy that you issue.

Due to some financial difficulties, I am wishing to offer some masses as my contribution. I am hoping for a favourable consideration for this request from you.

With all my best wishes

Truly yours
