                R. Jews went to Egypt — because of famine

                Kings of Egypt were friendly to the Jews at first

                Then that changed

                Egyptians afraid of being
                    overrun by foreigners because
                    the foreigners were prospering.

                    So then Egyptians clamped
                        down on the Jews

  

                Today's First Reading

Exodus 1: 8-14, 22

Then there came to power in Egypt a new king who had never heard of Joseph. 'Look,' he said to his people, 'the Israelites are now more numerous and stronger than we are. We must take precautions to stop them from increasing any further, or if war should break out, they might join the ranks of our enemies. They might take arms against us and then escape from the country.' Accordingly they put taskmasters over the Israelites to wear them down by forced labour. In this way they built the store-cities of Pithom and Rameses for Pharaoh. But the harder their lives were made, the more they increased and spread, until people came to fear the Israelites. So the Egyptians gave them no mercy in the demands they made, making their lives miserable with hard labour: with digging clay, making bricks, doing various kinds of field-work-all sorts of labour that they imposed on them without mercy.

Pharaoh then gave all his people this command: 'Throw every new-born boy into the river, but let all the girls live.'

    

                R. Exodus sets stage for the coming of
                    Moses —

                It started out well for Jews in
                    Egypt then it got pretty
                    bad.

                The Exodus writing was about 1300 BC

                    

Matthew 10: 34 - 11:1

Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth: it is not peace I have come to bring, but a sword. For I have come to set son against father, daughter against mother, daughter-in-law against mother-in-law; a person's enemies will be the members of his own household.

'No one who prefers father or mother to me is worthy of me. No one who prefers son or daughter to me is worthy of me. Anyone who does not take his cross and follow in my footsteps is not worthy of me. Anyone who finds his life will lose it; anyone who loses his life for my sake will find it.

'Anyone who welcomes you welcomes me; and anyone who welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me. 'Anyone who welcomes a prophet because he is a prophet will have a prophet's reward; and anyone who welcomes an upright person because he is upright will have the reward of an upright person. 'If anyone gives so much as a cup of cold water to one of these little ones because he is a disciple, then in truth I tell you, he will most certainly not go without his reward.'

When Jesus had finished instructing his twelve disciples he moved on from there to teach and preach in their towns.

   

                R. Jesus gives instructions to Apostles
                Jesus tells them it won't be
                    fun and games

                Jesus says some will not be
                    connected to God —
                    there will be friction in
                    one's own family —

                If a person wants to be Catholic the
                    priests said many times their
                    family is all upset about it.

                People may want religion to
                    feel good, not to be
                    challenging —

                The Reward is in sharing in God's
                    Kingdom

                Jesus gives us His Sacrifice on Calvary and
                    the Mass — the sacrifice of Calvary
                    sacramentally made present —

                We must ask Jesus to help us in difficult
                    times

                Let's pray for people who give into the devil today —
                    Lord You are holy
                    Lord You are the fountain of all holiness
                    Oh God help us to be holy
                    Jesus gives us His Body and Blood —

                    Jesus gives us Himself
                    Jesus died for us so sins can be forgiven
                    Jesus gives us Himself in Communion
                    Jesus is such a precious lover
                    Jesus gives us the cup of salvation
 


 

                R. Moses said
                    'Let My People go'

                Oh God help us to not give into satan —

  

Excerpt of The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius, by Louis J. Puhl, S.J. P.60-61
 

136. THE FOURTH DAY

        A MEDITATION ON TWO STANDARDS

The one of Christ, our supreme leader and lord,
the other of Lucifer, the deadly enemy of our
human nature

PRAYER.   The usual preparatory prayer.

window at a former Jesuit Seminary

137. FIRST PRELUDE.   This is the history. Here it will be that Christ calls and wants all beneath His standard, and Lucifer, on the other hand, wants all under his.

138. SECOND PRELUDE.   This is a mental representation of the place. It will be here to see a great plain, comprising the whole region about Jerusalem, where the sovereign Commander-in-Chief of all the good is Christ our Lord; and another plain about the region of Babylon, where the chief of the enemy is Lucifer.

139. THIRD PRELUDE.   This is to ask for what I desire. Here it will be to ask for a knowledge of the deceits of the rebel chief and help to guard myself against them; and also to ask for a knowledge of the true life exemplified in the sovereign and true Commander, and the grace to imitate Him.
   

FIRST PART

THE STANDARD OF SATAN

140. FIRST POINT.   Imagine you see the chief of all the enemy in the vast plain about Babylon, seated on a great throne of fire and smoke, his appearance inspiring horror and terror.

141. SECOND POINT.   Consider how he summons innumerable demons, and scatters them, some to one city and some to another, throughout the whole world, so that no province, no place, no state of life, no individual is overlooked.

142. THIRD POINT.   Consider the address he makes to them, how he goads them on to lay snares for men and bind them with chains. First they are to tempt them to covet riches (as Satan himself is accustomed to do in most cases) that they may the more easily attain the empty honors of this world, and then come to overweening pride.

   The first step, then, will be riches, the second honor, the third pride. From these three steps the evil one leads to all other vices.
   

SECOND PART

THE STANDARD OF CHRIST

143.   In a similar way, we are to picture to ourselves the sovereign and true Commander, Christ our Lord.

144. FIRST POINT.   Consider Christ our Lord, standing in a lowly place in a great plain about the region of Jerusalem, His appearance beautiful and attractive.

145. SECOND POINT.   Consider how the Lord of all the world chooses so many persons, apostles, disciples, etc., and sends them throughout the whole world to spread His sacred doctrine among all men, no matter what their state or condition.

146. THIRD POINT.   . . .

                R. Oh Tender God

                Oh Precious Jesus You showed us
                    how to be obedient to Your Father

                Do men not see this sacrifice
                    How you gave yourself in obedience
                        to the Father's will
                    Oh God — you are with Me —
                        I love You so much
                        I live to serve You
                        To savor the moments I am so
                            close to You
                        To know my work for you is
                            a labor of love for Thee
                        The sweetness of this suffering —

                I see the cross you carried with our
                    sins I know the resurrection —

                I see you carry it with such love —
                I look into your bloody face as
                    Mary once did —

                Oh God your head crowned — not with
                    gold, but with a crown of
                    thorns

                Oh God they pierced Your precious
                    head and make it bleed —

                The blood You shed for our sins —
                The saving Blood —

                Oh God from Your fountain of
                    Your grace we receive a
                    more abundant sharing
                    in Your life —

                For life is in Your, God
                Life — Oh God — I long to be saturated
                    with Your grace

                Oh Mary, My Mother standing beneath
                    the cross — I stand with you
                    in the trials of this life

                Oh Mary, Mother of us all —
                    I love You —

                Oh Mary, Our Lady of Clearwater
                    hear the prayers of the Shepherds of Christ
                    this July 13, 2009

                We pray for the sins of this world — 

92 Years Ago Today

  

Excerpt from The Spirituality of Fatima

by Fr. Edward Carter, S.J.

July 13, 1917

    "During her appearance in July, Our Lady, in answer to Lucia's plea, promised that in October she would work a great miracle so that all might believe and know who she was. Again, the Mother of God told the children to sacrifice themselves for sinners and to say many times, especially when making a sacrifice, this prayer: "O my Jesus, I offer this for love of Thee, for the conversion of poor sinners, and in reparation for all the sins committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary." (11)

    "During this same July apparition, Mary showed the three children a vision of Hell. She told them:

    "You have seen Hell, where the souls of poor sinners go. To save them, God wishes to establish, in the world, devotion to my Immaculate Heart. If people do what I tell you, many souls will be saved and there will be peace.

    "The war (World War I, then raging) is going to end. But if people do not stop offending God, another and worse one will begin in the reign of Pius XI. When you shall see a night illuminated by an unknown light [January 2, 1938], know that this is the great sign that God gives you that He is going to punish the world for its many crimes by means of war, hunger, and persecution of the Church and the Holy Father. (12)

    "To prevent this, I shall come to ask for the consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart and the Communion of Reparation on the five first Saturdays. If my requests are granted, Russia will be converted and there will be peace. If not, she will scatter her errors throughout the world, provoking wars and persecutions of the Church. The good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer, and various nations will be destroyed....

    "But in the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph, the Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, Russia will be converted, and a certain period of peace will be granted to the world." (13)

                Oh God help us with the funds to do this

                We need $10,000 for Mass Book
                    to reprint Tell My People

                    $13,000 — $15,000 to finish priest house

                Money for bishops foreign mailing

                    Stucco in church
                    Statue Bill

                Please help us — we need your help —

                The building payment is due
                    the 19th of every month

                God please help us


                In dysfunctional families there is an
                    elephant in the living room —
                    when things are wrong and they
                        are addressed satan doesn't
                        like his secrets exposed —

                If satan is working he wants to keep
                    working in a sneaky way to
                    let things eventually move
                    more and more to where he
                    can block God's will through
                    people giving into him —

                Satan becomes angered even when we address
                    any problem —

                If a person is doing something wrong
                    like this bridge story —
                    I got several days ago

      

                Excerpt from July 9, 2009 writings

                A man wanted to build a very important bridge —
                    half way through, one fellow was doing
                    work that would make the bridge very
                    unsafe —

                the foreman corrected him telling him how he
                    must do it to make it safe so no one
                    would get hurt —

                the worker was angry that anyone would question
                    him — he caused discord for the foreman —
                    he made the men divided trying to get some
                    to stand with him against the foreman —

                The man did it out of pride —
                    his attitude inside him was dark to begin with
                    no one would tell him what to do — he was
                        prideful and thought only of himself —

                    he didn't see the big picture —

                    he worked for his own vain glory, with little
                        concern for the safety of others, or why
                        he worked to build a bridge —

                    His vision was distorted —

                    The person seeing through God's eyes does
                        things for love of God and others —

                    end of excerpt

     

                The person can say — I will never
                    be corrected — I can do what
                    I want —
                    I will retaliate and punish
                        anyone who stands in my
                        way

                In the world — there is a cloud of
                    darkness —
                    hovering over us —

                    The devil tries to make right look
                wrong and wrong look right —

                    Then when people are unloving,
                disrespectful, evil in their ways —
                jealous, envious, prideful — seeking
                glory for themselves

                    The movies, television, internet
                can act like brainwashing showing
                evil as good and good as evil —

                    But God's power is All powerful —

                Mary appeared at Fatima and
                    in the Tell My People Messages from
                        Jesus and Mary

                        and my messages —

                We see that people must make
                    Jesus the King of their hearts and
                    make
                    Mary the Queen of their hearts —

                We must consecrate our hearts to the
                    Hearts of Jesus and Mary —

                Until a sufficient number make Jesus
                    the King and Mary the Queen of their
                    hearts —
                    we won't have peace in the
                    world

                Mary is the Queen of Peace

                This is our mission in the Shepherds of Christ
                    to spread this devotion

                    The people look to the leader for
                leadership — if the leader teaches them
                to put themselves first above God — they
                teach them pursuit of false gods —

                    they teach them to peruse power
                and riches and affections

                    Dear God, I give my life
                to You that I will hear Your word
                as You speak through me —

                What do You see —

    

Jeremiah 1: 4-10

 The word of Yahweh came to me, saying:

    ‘Before I formed you in the womb
        I knew you;
    before you came to birth
        I consecrated you;
    I appointed you as prophet to the nations.’

    I then said, ‘Ah, ah, ah, Lord Yahweh; you see, I do not know how to speak: I am only a child!

    But Yahweh replied,
    ‘Do not say, “I am only a child,”
    for you must go to all to whom I send you
    and say whatever I command you.
    Do not be afraid of confronting them,
    for I am with you to rescue you,
    Yahweh declares.’

    Then Yahweh stretched out his hand and touched my mouth, and Yahweh said to me:

    ‘There! I have put my words
        into your mouth.
    Look, today I have set you
    over the nations and kingdoms,
    to uproot and to knock down,
    to destroy and to overthrow,
    to build and to plant.’

    

                Sing: By Name I Have Called You —

                Mary called 3 children at Fatima —
                    Mary gave the message to children
                    who could not read or write and
                    knew little of the war — World War I,
                    then raging

                Let the Word of God live in you —
                    turn to God with all your heart and
                    all your soul —

                Jesus: I am God and you shall have no gods
                    before Me —

                You will speak for me


 

August 16, 1993

R. Dear Jesus, Please come to me and write to me now, I really need to be alone with You and hear Your words, please talk to me.

Jesus:  My dear child, put your fear and anxiety aside. You are coming for My truth. I am the Truth. I live in you and you are watered by My words of truth. Deception is very troublesome to you when you live in My truth. On any scale deception is not at all funny. I know you cannot watch a movie anymore, it is not of God. Do not give in to the ways of this world. Feed yourself with only that which is of Me. Turn your entire life over to Me, trust in My ways and make them your own. Read and reread each letter, go back to your old letters, know them by heart so My words and thinking will become engraved in you. You must speak from My truth. You must be filled with My wisdom. You must not falter or wonder, but be confident in these words I write to you. My work for you is to speak My truths. You must study them and know all I have taught you. Those are your lessons. All that is not of Me will become so foreign, you will want only to choose My way, but you must teach yourself with My letters. I am the WAY, the TRUTH and the LIFE and he who abides in Me will have the light of life. The life I give you is not of this world. It is rooted in My words and My truth. Only I can teach you My truths. This world is so full of error. Unless you keep constant in My teachings by reading My words, you will go astray. My words are the food by which you are nourished and fed. My words are your drink, they are your food, they are your all. You will run and not grow weary, you will fly like an eagle. Joy will abound in your heart and you will know that true joy comes only from Me. All other joy is momentary. My joy is everlasting and full to the brim, You, My child, can have this joy if you stay fixed in My words. Savor them and decipher all their meanings for you, this is your truth, this is your victory over Satan’s lies. This is how you will help others to know Me. Your instructions are very clear, My child. STUDY each letter and try to understand all of its contents. They are words meant for you so you can speak these truths to others. It is not by chance you were chosen by Me, My child. You are a teacher, you are convincing in all you believe in. Believe in these letters and memorize My teachings until they flow from you as from your very soul. You must put aside your doubts now. Keep these letters by your side. Your life here will be always put into perspective. You will not get caught up in foolishness, or worry for any reason. I AM HE, I AM here. Your work is clear, study and learn My words so they become engraved in you. Speak of My words to all. I am the Way, the Truth and the Life and you are My messenger. I speak the truth to you that you will speak the truth to all. No time to wait, time is so short. Be busy studying My teachings now. Keep them in your purse, underline and read them again and again. These are not just for you, they are teachings of My love for all My children. Each child needs to be told about My love. Reach as many as possible through your speech. I am by your side, giving you what you need. The crooked ways are made straight, the weary are sent away in rest. Your voice will be My tool to reach many. Make yourself like jello. I will form you into what I want you to be. You must remain formless and be molded by Me. I am this close to you, My child. You will take some knocks, but you will be the key to unlock many doors. Use you I will, let all busy things behind. Focus on Me at every moment. This is My desire for you to speak My truth. I will be with you, little one, do not be afraid. I will tell you the way.

R. Oh my Jesus, how You want me to do this I do not know. Show me how it is to come about or put me somewhere and I will now study Your words for me. For He made me humble and taught me His ways, which are the only ways to go. All other ways are not of any account. His way is the way to victory, the cross that leads us to glory, joy and peace in this life and glory and salvation in the world to come. He bound up my foolish ways and taught me His truths. My tongue was made clean, and my heart was full of His love. He cast away my doubts and fears and filled me with the gifts of the Spirit. His light He shined deep into my soul and He washed me in His Blood and I was made ready to do His work, an honor that I do not deserve, but long to fulfill for Him, my God, my All, my Jesus. Him I love and He has bestowed on me a great dignity. With love and respect He clothed me and made my broken heart and soul whole in Him. I am the fortunate one to know this one, true magnificent God. I bow in awe at all His greatness.

I am in awe at His love for us all. In our lowliness and sin He reached out and clothed us with dignity and showered us with His love and we were like the flowers after the rain, blessed by Him in His greatness. We are His children, Alleluia, Alleluia. Praise the Lord. Amen.

Ecclesiastes 3: 1-11

There is a season for everything, a time for every occupation under heaven: 

A time for giving birth, 
a time for dying; 
a time for planting, 
a time for uprooting what has been planted. 
A time for killing, 
a time for healing; 
a time for knocking down, 
a time for building. 
A time for tears, 
a time for laughter; 
a time for mourning, 
a time for dancing. 
A time for throwing stones away, 
a time for gathering them; 
a time for embracing, 
a time to refrain from embracing. 
A time for searching, 
a time for losing; 
a time for keeping, 
a time for discarding. 
A time for tearing, 
a time for sewing; 
a time for keeping silent, 
a time for speaking. 
A time for loving, 
a time for hating; 
a time for war, 
a time for peace. 

    What do people gain from the efforts they make? I contemplate the task that God gives humanity to labour at. All that he does is apt for its time; but although he has given us an awareness of the passage of time, we can grasp neither the beginning nor the end of what God does.

                R. What a day to serve the Lord —
                    the sun is bright and
                    God is with us —
                    Be obedient to Him —
                    Pray with us

                Slavery to the evil one who wants
                    to tempt people to follow
                    him

                God is telling us to follow Him
                We must follow God

                Freedom is found in doing God's will —
                Respecting life —

                Living the Gospel message —
                Praying the rosary —

                Following the teachings of the Church
                Making Jesus the King of Our Hearts —
                Mary the Queen of our hearts —


                I speak the truth


                We must follow the teachings of God —
                Not follow the temptation of the evil
                    one

                Turn to God —

                Do not deceive yourselves —

                Do not give into satan —
                Repent —
                Pray to God

                Make reparation —

                Tell God you are sorry for
                    your sins —

                Be holy, not judgmental and
                    self-righteous


                Look how they treated Jesus —

                They crucified Him
                They whipped Him

                Crowned Him with a crown of thorns

                China is the Eucharistic Center —
                    to study the letters of love —
                    to be at peace —
                    to grow in spirituality
                    to pray —
                    to help RENEW the Church and
                        the world


                To help to bring an era of peace


                To pray during these days of retreat
                    for 4 days for reparation for
                    the offenses against God

                To pray for the priests, the Church
                    and the world


                Jesus: Harden not your hearts — Be grateful
                    for all the gifts I have given to you —
                    You in your willful ways,
                        persecute Me when you fight
                        My plan for peace and the
                        renewal of the world —

                    I have come not to destroy, but to
                        lead to this era of peace and
                        love where My Heart will
                        Reign and the heart of My Mother
                            will triumph —
                    Do not be enslaved to satan —
                        you have a free will —
                        Do not give into him —

                    Do not follow the ways of the
                        world

                    I am your King — you serve Me —

                    Do not judge —

                    Follow My way and thank Me —

                    R. Follow the way of the Lord —
                    Follow the mission of the Shepherds of Christ
                        to bring peace and love

                    Let go of inordinate attachments

Prayer from St. Ignatius

Lord, teach me to be generous.
Teach me to serve you as you deserve;
To give and not to count the cost;
To fight and not to heed the wounds;
To toil and not to seek for rest;
To labor and not to ask for any reward,
Save that of knowing
                    that I am doing your will.

  

                        Dear God — teach us to be generous —
                        help us to discern the spirits and
                        do Your will always —
                        help us to be thankful for our
                        vocation in the Shepherds of Christ and serve
                        You as You deserve to be served —
                        Oh God help us to love You and love and
                        respect those You have called us
                        to work with in the Shepherds of Christ and
                        work together according to Your
                        will to accomplish this great
                        work — for the priests, the Church
                        and the world —
                        God help us to be holy — to work
                        in peace, love and joy and let go
                        of inordinate attachments
                        God we thank and love You
                                                   
July 8, 2009 

 

                R. Think of the flood of Noah —

                Let's obey God's will

                Jesus: Admit your sins —
                    Say you are sorry

                    forgive others and
                    live to love and serve God and
                    others — doing work for His
                    honor and gory



           

  

Glorious Mysteries

 

                Resurrection

                (1) R. We must obey God's laws —
                    Moses received the commandments —
                    We must obey God's laws —

                (2) R. Jesus is a great King —
                    King of heaven and earth —
                    He loved us so much —
                        He died for us —
                    Jesus rose from the death —

                (3) Jeremiah 1: 4-10

 The word of Yahweh came to me, saying:

    ‘Before I formed you in the womb
        I knew you;
    before you came to birth
        I consecrated you;
    I appointed you as prophet to the nations.’

    I then said, ‘Ah, ah, ah, Lord Yahweh; you see, I do not know how to speak: I am only a child!

    But Yahweh replied,
    ‘Do not say, “I am only a child,”
    for you must go to all to whom I send you
    and say whatever I command you.
    Do not be afraid of confronting them,
    for I am with you to rescue you,
    Yahweh declares.’

    Then Yahweh stretched out his hand and touched my mouth, and Yahweh said to me:

    ‘There! I have put my words
        into your mouth.
    Look, today I have set you
    over the nations and kingdoms,
    to uproot and to knock down,
    to destroy and to overthrow,
    to build and to plant.’

                (4) Jeremiah 2: 1-3

The word of Yahweh came to me, saying, 'Go and shout this in Jerusalem's ears: 'Yahweh says this: "I remember your faithful love, the affection of your bridal days, when you followed me through the desert, through a land unsown. Israel was sacred to Yahweh; the first-fruits of his harvest; all who ate this incurred guilt, disaster befell them, Yahweh declares." '

                (5) Jeremiah 3: 11-14

And Yahweh said to me, 'Disloyal Israel is upright, compared with faithless Judah. So go and shout words towards the north, and say: "Come back, disloyal Israel, Yahweh declares, I shall frown on you no more, since I am merciful, Yahweh declares. I shall not keep my anger for ever. Only acknowledge your guilt: how you have rebelled against Yahweh your God, how you have prostituted yourself with the Strangers under every green tree and have not listened to my voice, Yahweh declares. "Come back, disloyal children, Yahweh declares, for I alone am your Master, and I will take you, one from a town, two from a family, and bring you to Zion.

                (6) Jesus: I am the Lord your God — you
                        shall not have any gods
                        before Me —

                (7) Jesus: I am Jesus, I died for you —

 

Colossians 3: 1-4

Since you have been raised up to be with Christ, you must look for the things that are above, where Christ is, sitting at God’s right hand. Let your thoughts be on things above, not on the things that are on the earth, because you have died, and now the life you have is hidden with Christ in God. But when Christ is revealed-and he is your life-you, too, will be revealed with him in glory.

 

                    R. Christ, sinless, reconciled sinners
                        to the Father —

                (8) John 20: 1-9

It was very early on the first day of the week and still dark, when Mary of Magdala came to the tomb. She saw that the stone had been moved away from the tomb and came running to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one whom Jesus loved. 'They have taken the Lord out of the tomb,' she said, 'and we don't know where they have put him.'

So Peter set out with the other disciple to go to the tomb. They ran together, but the other disciple, running faster than Peter, reached the tomb first; he bent down and saw the linen cloths lying on the ground, but did not go in. Simon Peter, following him, also came up, went into the tomb, saw the linen cloths lying on the ground and also the cloth that had been over his head; this was not with the linen cloths but rolled up in place by itself. Then the other disciple who had reached the tomb first also went in; he saw and he believed. Till this moment they had still not understood the scripture, that he must rise from the dead.

                (9) Sing: Psalm 118

                    Give thanks to the Lord for
                        He is good — His love is
                        everlasting —

                (10) R. God spoke through the prophets —
                    Jesus the greatest prophet —

  

                Ascension

                (1) Acts 1: 1-11

In my earlier work, Theophilus, I dealt with everything Jesus had done and taught from the beginning until the day he gave his instructions to the apostles he had chosen through the Holy Spirit, and was taken up to heaven. He had shown himself alive to them after his Passion by many demonstrations: for forty days he had continued to appear to them and tell them about the kingdom of God. While at table with them, he had told them not to leave Jerusalem, but to wait there for what the Father had promised. ‘It is’, he had said, ‘what you have heard me speak about: John baptised with water but, not many days from now, you are going to be baptised with the Holy Spirit.’

Now having met together, they asked him, ‘Lord, has the time come for you to restore the kingdom to Israel?’ He replied, ‘It is not for you to know times or dates that the Father has decided by his own authority, but you will receive the power of the Holy Spirit which will come on you, and then you will be my witnesses not only in Jerusalem but throughout Judaea and Samaria, and indeed to earth’s remotest end.’
     As he said this he was lifted up while they looked on, and a cloud took him from their sight. They were still staring into the sky as he went, when suddenly two men in white were standing beside them, and they said, ‘Why are you Galileans standing here looking into the sky? This Jesus who has been taken up from you into heaven will come back in the same way as you have seen him go to heaven.’

                (2) Matthew 28: 19-20

Go, therefore, make disciples of all nations; baptise them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teach them to observe all the commands I gave you. And look, I am with you always; yes, to the end of time.'

                (3) Jesus: I speak to you —
                    I call you to follow Me.
                    I tell you to speak the
                        truth —
                    Amend your ways —
                    Do not be deceptive —

                    I want respect in My houses —
                    I want you to be holy —
                    I have given you so much —

                    Do not sin —
                    Do not worship other gods —

                    Don't do evil and come like
                        a hypocrite to My house —
                        come and be pure —
                        tell your sins to the priest —
                        go to confession

                    Pray to be forgiven
                    Say you are sorry for your sins —
                    Pray for God's mercy

                (4) R. The prophets were persecuted, but
                        they had a responsibility to God
                        to speak —

                    Men who wanted their way —
                        hated the prophets — they wanted
                        what they wanted — they did not
                        want to change

                (5) Jesus: Keep your hearts open —
                        be good —
                        God calls the prophet to speak —

                        R. I felt His fire in me and I spoke
                            His words!

                (6) Sing: Remember My Love

                (7) 1 Peter 4: 13-16

but in so far as you share in the sufferings of Christ, be glad, so that you may enjoy a much greater gladness when his glory is revealed. If you are insulted for bearing Christ’s name, blessed are you, for on you rests the Spirit of God, the Spirit of glory. None of you should ever deserve to suffer for being a murderer, a thief, a criminal or an informer; but if any one of you should suffer for being a Christian, then there must be no shame but thanksgiving to God for bearing this name.

                (8) Jesus: What do you see?
                        Do you know I speak to you —
                        Pray My people —
                        Pray for the priests, the Church and
                            the world —
                        They fight you, but I am
                            with you —
                        You must listen — I call you
                            to reach My children —
                                        your children —

                (9) Jesus: You are to do as I say —
                        I love you so much

1 John 4: 11-16

My dear friends,
if God loved us so much,
we too should love one another.
No one has ever seen God,
but as long as we love one another
God remains in us
and his love comes to its perfection in us.
This is the proof that we remain in him
and he in us,
that he has given us a share in his Spirit.
We ourselves have seen and testify
that the Father sent his Son
as Saviour of the world.
Anyone who acknowledges
    that Jesus is the Son of God,
God remains in him and he in God.
We have recognised for ourselves,
and put our faith in,
    the love God has for us.
God is love,
and whoever remains in love
    remains in God
and God in him.
 

                (1) Jesus: Do as your God asks you — Do not
                        do our own will opposed to
                        My will —
                        I have called you, I want you
                            to obey
                        I will speak to you —
                        Will you listen?
                        You will suffer, but you will
                            know joy in helping men
                            to know Me —

   

                Descent of the Holy Spirit on the Apostles and Mary

                (1) Jesus: I call you to obey My laws —
                        I call you to do My will —

                (2) Joel 3: 1-5

‘After this
I shall pour out my spirit on all humanity.
Your sons and daughters shall prophesy,
your old people shall dream dreams,
and your young people see visions.
Even on the slaves, men and women,
shall I pour out my spirit in those days.
I shall show portents in the sky
    and on earth,
blood and fire and columns of smoke.’

The sun will be turned into darkness,
and the moon into blood,
before the Day comes,
that great and terrible Day.
All who call on the name of Yahweh
    will be saved,
for on Mount Zion will be those
    who have escaped,

as Yahweh has said,
and in Jerusalem a remnant
    whom Yahweh is calling.

                (3) R. God the Holy Spirit wants to lead
                        us in the ways of God —
                        listen to His counsel
                        pray for His counsel
                        discern the spirits

                (4) Acts 2: 1-11

When Pentecost day came round, they had all met together, when suddenly there came from heaven a sound as of a violent wind which filled the entire house in which they were sitting; and there appeared to them tongues as of fire; these separated and came to rest on the head of each of them. They were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak different languages as the Spirit gave them power to express themselves.

    Now there were devout men living in Jerusalem from every nation under heaven, and at this sound they all assembled, and each one was bewildered to hear these men speaking his own language. They were amazed and astonished. ‘Surely,’ they said, ‘all these men speaking are Galileans? How does it happen that each of us hears them in his own native language? Parthians, Medes and Elamites; people from Mesopotamia, Judaea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya round Cyrene; residents of Rome—Jews and proselytes alike—Cretans and Arabs, we hear them preaching in our own language about the marvels of God.’

 

                    R. They were filled with the Holy Sprit and
                        began to speak in different languages —

                (5) Sing: Veni Sanctus Spiritus

                (6) Sing: Isaiah 49

                (7) John 1: 29-34

   The next day, he saw Jesus coming towards him and said, ‘Look, there is the lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world. It was of him that I said, “Behind me comes one who has passed ahead of me because he existed before me.” I did not know him myself, and yet my purpose in coming to baptise with water was so that he might be revealed to Israel.’ And John declared, ‘I saw the Spirit come down on him like a dove from heaven and rest on him. I did not know him myself, but he who sent me to baptise with water had said to me, “The man on whom you see the Spirit come down and rest is the one who is to baptise with the Holy Spirit.” I have seen and I testify that he is the Chosen One of God.’

                    Jesus: Pray for healing
                        I heal the sick.

                (7) Sing: Guiding Me

                (8) Sing: Little Baby Hands and Feet

                (9) R. I speak the truth —
                    We speak the Word, the Commandments.
                        the truth about the Church —

                    Prophets are rejected —
                    Prophets bring messages to heed —
                        Turn to God

                    Spread the consecration
                    Pray the rosary

                    Spread the books, writings to the
                        priests

                    Start prayer chapters —

                    Prophets receive messages —
                        people don't want to
                        change

                    Many people don't want to
                        obey —

                    God tells us we are to obey —

                    Prophets call for the Lord —

                    Many don't want to listen

                (10) R. They called Christ crazy
                        Jesus had enemies —
                        Jesus suffered.

  

                Mary is Crowned Queen of Heaven and Earth

                (1) Sing: Hail Holy Queen

                (2) Mark 1: 15

‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is close at hand. Repent, and believe the gospel.’

                (3) R. Many people will not listen
                    Many people won't obey God's commandments —

                (4) R. Many people tell themselves they
                        are right — when they are wrong

                (5) From the Litany of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Queen of angels,
Queen of patriarchs,
Queen of prophets,
Queen of apostles,
Queen of martyrs,
Queen of confessors,
Queen of virgins,
Queen of all saints,
Queen conceived without original sin,
Queen assumed into heaven,
Queen of the most holy rosary,
Queen of families,
Queen of peace,

                (6) Luke 1: 1-4; 4: 14-21

Seeing that many others have undertaken to draw up accounts of the events that have reached their fulfilment among us, as these were handed down to us by those who from the outset were eyewitnesses and ministers of the word,  I in my turn, after carefully going over the whole story from the beginning, have decided to write an ordered account for you, Theophilus, so that your Excellency may learn how well founded the teaching is that you have received.

Jesus, with the power of the Spirit in him, returned to Galilee; and his reputation spread throughout the countryside. He taught in their synagogues and everyone glorified him. He came to Nazara, where he had been brought up, and went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day as he usually did. He stood up to read, and they handed him the scroll of the prophet Isaiah. Unrolling the scroll he found the place where it is written: The spirit of the Lord is on me, for he has anointed me to bring the good news to the afflicted. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to captives, sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free, to proclaim a year of favour from the Lord. He then rolled up the scroll, gave it back to the assistant and sat down. And all eyes in the synagogue were fixed on him. Then he began to speak to them, 'This text is being fulfilled today even while you are listening.'

 

                (7) Revelation 12: 1-2

Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman, robed with the sun, standing on the moon, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. She was pregnant, and in labour, crying aloud in the pangs of childbirth.

 

                (8) R. Mary is the Spouse of the Holy Spirit.

                        From Tell My People

The Holy Spirit

Jesus: "My beloved friend, tell My people to pray daily to the Holy Spirit. They are to pray for an increase in His gifts. My people must realize that the Holy Spirit comes to transform them. The Spirit desires to transform you more and more according to My image. Those who are docile to His touch become increasingly shaped in My likeness. He performs this marvel within Mary's Immaculate Heart. The more one dwells in My Mother's Heart, the more active are the workings of the Spirit. The Spirit leads Mary to place you within My own Heart. In both Our Hearts, then, your transformation continues. The more you are formed after My own Heart, the more I lead you to the bosom of My Father. Tell My people all this. Tell them to pray daily for a greater appreciation of these wondrous gifts. I am Lord and Master. All who come to My Heart will be on fire to receive the gifts of the Spirit in ever greater measure! I love and bless My people!"

Reflection: The Holy Spirit is given to us to fashion us ever more according to the likeness of Jesus. And the more we are like Jesus, the more Jesus leads us to the Father. Do we, each day, pray to the Holy Spirit to be more open to His transforming influence? Do we strive each day to grow in union with Mary? The greater our union with our Mother, the spouse of the Holy Spirit, the greater is the transforming action of the Holy Spirit within us.

Holy Spirit Novena

DAILY NOVENA PRAYERS

Opening Prayer

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Dear Father, we come to You in the name of Jesus, in union with Him in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, in the Holy Spirit. We come to You united to the Child Jesus of Good Health and the Infant of Prague. We come to You in the perfect, sinless heart of Our Mother Mary, asking her powerful intercession, uniting ourselves to her holy tears. We come to You united to all the angels and saints, and the souls in purgatory.

Prayer for Holy Spirit

We pray for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit on us, to be baptized by the Holy Spirit, that He will descend mightily on us as He did on the Apostles at Pentecost. That the Holy Spirit will transform us from fear to fearlessness and that He will give us courage to do all the Father is asking of us to help bring about the Reign of the Sacred Heart and the triumph of Mary's Immaculate Heart. We pray for the Holy Spirit to descend mightily on the Jesuits and the Poor Clares on the Shepherds of Christ leaders and members and on the whole Body of Christ and the world.

Protection by the Blood of Jesus

We pray that the Blood of Jesus will be spread on us, everyone in our families, and the Shepherds of Christ Movement, that we will be able to move steadfastly ahead and be protected from the evil one.

Healing

We pray for healing in body, mind, and soul and generational healing in ourselves, in all members in our families, and in all members of the Shepherds of Christ Movement, the Jesuit Community, the Poor Clares, the Body of Christ, and the world.

Prayer for Strength and Light

We adore You, oh Holy Spirit. Give us strength, give us light, console us. We give ourselves entirely to You. Oh Spirit of light and grace, we want to only do the will of the Father. Enlighten us that we may live always in the Father's will.

Eternal Spirit fill us with Your Divine Wisdom that we may comprehend more fully insight into Your Divine Mysteries.

Give us lights, Oh Holy Spirit that we may know God. Work within the heart, the spiritual womb of the Virgin Mary, to form us more and more into the image of Jesus.

Prayer to Be One with God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit

We long for You, Oh Spirit of Light, we long to know God, we want to be one with Him, our Divine God. We want to be one with the Father, know Him as a Person most intimately. We want to know the beloved One, the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and live and dwell in Him at all times, every moment of our lives. We want to be one with You, Oh Spirit of Light, that You move in us in our every breath.

Prayer to Be One in Jesus

Let us experience life in the Sacred Heart of Jesus, so we can say as Saint Paul, "I have been crucified with Christ and yet I am alive; yet it is no longer I, but Christ living in me...." Let us live, united to the Mass, all through the day being one in Him. Let us be able to love and know in this elevated state of oneness with our God. We long for Thee, oh beauteous God, we love You, we love You, we love You. We praise You, worship You, honor You, adore You, and thank You, our beloved God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Prayer to Dwell in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary

We seek to be one in God, to live and dwell in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, our little heaven on earth, to experience life in the all perfect, pure, sinless heart of our Mother. We want the Holy Spirit to move in us and to be united to Jesus as the Bridegroom of our souls and be a most perfect sacrifice offered to the Father at every moment as we unite in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass around the world to help in the salvation of souls.

Prayer for the Holy Spirit and His Gifts

Come Holy Spirit, come, come into our hearts, inflame all people with the fire of Your love.

Leader: Send forth Your Spirit and all will be reborn.
All:  And You will renew the face of the earth.

We pray for the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit, we ask for perfection in our souls to make us holy, holy souls likened to God.

Dear Holy Spirit, we give ourselves to You soul and body. We ask You to give us the Spirit of Wisdom, Understanding, Counsel, Fortitude, Knowledge, Piety, and Fear of the Lord.

Prayer for the Word Alive in Our Hearts

We know, dear Holy Spirit, the Word in His human nature was brought forth within the womb of the woman. We pray that His word will be brought forth in our hearts as He lives and dwells in us. We want the incarnation to go on in our lives. Dear Holy Spirit, work in us.

Little Prayers to the Holy Spirit

Dear Holy Spirit, help us not to be ignorant or indifferent or weak, help us to be strong with the love of God.

Dear Holy Spirit, please pray for our needs for us.

Dear Holy Spirit, help us to respect God and to avoid sin. Help us to live in the Father's will.

Dear Holy Spirit, help us to keep Your commandments and to respect authority. Help us to love all things as You will us to love them. Help us to want to pray and always serve God with the greatest love. Help us to know the truth. Help us to have the gift of faith, hope, and love. Help us to know what is right and what is wrong.

A Prayer for Intimacy with the Lamb, the Bridegroom of the Soul

Oh Lamb of God, Who take away the sins of the world, come and act on my soul most intimately. I surrender myself, as I ask for the grace to let go, to just be as I exist in You and You act most intimately on my soul. You are the Initiator. I am the soul waiting Your favors as You act in me. I love You. I adore You. I worship You. Come and possess my soul with Your Divine Grace, as I experience You most intimately.

                (10) Ecclesiastes 3: 1-11

There is a season for everything, a time for every occupation under heaven: 

A time for giving birth, 
a time for dying; 
a time for planting, 
a time for uprooting what has been planted. 
A time for killing, 
a time for healing; 
a time for knocking down, 
a time for building. 
A time for tears, 
a time for laughter; 
a time for mourning, 
a time for dancing. 
A time for throwing stones away, 
a time for gathering them; 
a time for embracing, 
a time to refrain from embracing. 
A time for searching, 
a time for losing; 
a time for keeping, 
a time for discarding. 
A time for tearing, 
a time for sewing; 
a time for keeping silent, 
a time for speaking. 
A time for loving, 
a time for hating; 
a time for war, 
a time for peace. 

    What do people gain from the efforts they make? I contemplate the task that God gives humanity to labour at. All that he does is apt for its time; but although he has given us an awareness of the passage of time, we can grasp neither the beginning nor the end of what God does.

 

                    Sing: Be Not Afraid

                    R. Jesus is King of Heaven and Earth —

                    We serve God

 

Isaiah 66: 1

Thus says Yahweh: 
With heaven my throne 
and earth my footstool, 
what house could you build me, 
what place for me to rest,

 

Matthew 7: 8

Everyone who asks receives; everyone who searches finds; everyone who knocks will have the door opened.

 

                    R. God wants us to obey —

                    God calls us —

                    If we answer His call —
                        we cannot look back —
                        turn back —
                        betray Our God

                    God is all powerful
                    God knows all things

 

Matthew 5: 23-24

So then, if you are bringing your offering to the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your offering there before the altar, go and be reconciled with your brother first, and then come back and present your offering.

 

Zechariah 2: 14-17

Sing, rejoice, daughter of Zion, for now I am coming to live among you -Yahweh declares! And on that day many nations will be converted to Yahweh. Yes, they will become his people, and they will live among you. Then you will know that Yahweh Sabaoth has sent me to you! Yahweh will take possession of Judah, his portion in the Holy Land, and again make Jerusalem his choice. Let all people be silent before Yahweh, now that he is stirring from his holy Dwelling!

 

                    R. God calls us and we cannot always
                        have what we want

                    Jesus: When I call why do you
                        disobey Me —
                        I tell you what I want —
                        You can answer or do your
                            own will

                    R. We will be rewarded for following
                        God's will as He tells us —
                        we suffer when we
                        oppose God's will

                    Jesus: You can do My will or
                        fight the Plan of the
                        Father —

                    R. We can't win over God —

                    God has all the power —

                    God lets us suffer when we
                        are rebellious —

                    How should God get our
                        attention when we disobey
                        Him and He wants us doing
                        a job

                    Sing: Taste and See

                    Jesus: Listen My children
                        Listen to Me — I want to
                        give you a garden to bear
                        great fruit —

 

Genesis 12: 1-4

Yahweh said to Abram, ‘Leave your country, your kindred and your father’s house for a country which I shall show you; and I shall make you a great nation, I shall bless you and make your name famous; you are to be a blessing!

   I shall bless those who bless you,
   and shall curse those who curse you,
   and all clans on earth
   will bless themselves by you.’

   So Abram went as Yahweh told him, and Lot went with him. Abram was seventy–five years old when he left Haran.

   

                    R. Holy Spirit give us grace, please —
                        Help us to discern the spirits —


                    Jesus: Turn to God —
                        Ask for forgiveness

                    R. The Lord has spoken and
                        We must heed His word

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)
