     WE WANT TO BE INTERCESSORS PROMOTING UNITY IN PRAYER WITH ALL PEOPLE OF THE WORLD, PRAYING FOR THE PRIESTS, THE CHURCH, AND THE WORLD.

     We have described above the primary ministry of the Movement, the spirituality writings for priests, Shepherds of Christ. The 2nd most important ministry is the prayer chapters, whose members pray for the needs of priests and for the needs of all others also. Other ministries include promoting the act of consecration to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary as widely as possible. Promoting this act of consecration permeates all of our ministries. We also promote the praying of the rosary, and we have a special program regarding the rosary and the act of consecration for school children. We have programs for prisons and nursing homes to encourage the residents to pray for priests, the Church, and the world. We also publish various books, dvds, cds, cassette tapes, and other materials to help in the ongoing work of spiritual renewal.

     The mission of the Shepherds of Christ Movement is closely connected to Our Lady of Fatima's mission. We hope to play a major role in helping to bring fulfillment of the Peace Plan of Our Lady of Fatima. This plan includes:

  1. 1. Consecration to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary – until a sufficient number of people make and live the consecration, we will not have peace in the world.
  2. 2. Praying the rosary.
  3. 3. Observing the First Saturday Devotion.
  4. 4. Making reparation to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

     In helping to bring the Fatima message to completion, the Shepherds of Christ Movement is helping to bring about the Reign of the Sacred Heart and the triumph of the Immaculate Heart. This is a great privilege and a great responsibility! We ask for your prayers and help in other ways also. May God bless you abundantly!

 

LEVELS OF COMMITMENT

     There are seven levels of commitment in the Shepherds of Christ Movement.

  1. 1. There are Associates who gather and pray at least once monthly as a group and also help with donations to support the Shepherds of Christ priestly newsletter. They can be tremendously involved. They give as they feel they are able.
  2. 2. Apostles are members who have restricted their apostolic activity to the Shepherds of Christ. They literally act as a body of lay people who have given their lives in their present living situation to do all that they can to bring about the Reign of the Sacred Heart and the triumph of Mary's Immaculate Heart.
  3. 3. Prayer Apostles are often shut-ins, some are able to go to church and pray. They spend much of their lives praying for the Movement.
  4. 4. Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus are those who spend at least two separate hours weekly before the Blessed Sacrament praying for the following:
  1. 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. 2. For the Pope.
  3. 3. For all bishops of the world.
  4. 4. For all priests.
  5. 5. For all sisters and brothers in the religious life.
  6. 6. For all members of the Shepherds of Christ Movement, and for the spread of this Movement to the world.
  7. 7. For all members of the Catholic Church.
  8. 8. For all members of the human family.
  9. 9. For all souls in purgatory.
  1. 5. Handmaids of the Good Shepherd are young and older women who have given their lives in community primarily to pray for the Shepherds of Christ Movement and intentions and to be special spouses of Jesus. Some have more duties than others. All have the primary duty of prayer and the desire to be a special spouse of our Lord. One of the functions of the handmaids is the involvement in praying for and helping to circulate the priestly newsletter. The handmaids are not members of a religious order.
  2. 6. Servants of the Good Shepherd are men who live in community with a lifestyle and purpose similar to that of the handmaids. The servants are not members of a religious order.
  3. 7. We wish to form a special congregation of priests who will realize their great oneness with Christ. They will be consecrated deeply to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary and support the Shepherds of Christ Movement as holy priests.

     Whatever one's level of commitment in the Shepherds of Christ Movement, all share in promoting the overall goal of the Movement. This goal is to help in the spiritual renewal of the Church and the world. All varied ministries of the Movement are directed toward this purpose. The spirituality which the Shepherds of Christ Movement presents to its members and to those outside the Movement through its various ministries is very basic. This spirituality is explicitly Trinitarian and Christocentric. Our spirituality helps others, especially priests, to develop a very deep union with Jesus, this Jesus Who leads us to the Father in the Holy Spirit with Mary at our side. Our spirituality is deeply Eucharistic. We stress very much participation in the Mass and prayer before the Blessed Sacrament. We also emphasize the extremely important role of prayer in the spiritual life. Devotion to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, especially consecration to Their Hearts, is also a most important and central element. We are very much interested in helping to bring the Fatima message to completion, a message which has consecration to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary at its very core.

 

Father Edward J. Carter, S.J. was the founder

Father Edward Carter, S.J. was a native of Cincinnati, Ohio. A graduate of St. Xavier High School and Xavier University, both in Cincinnati, he was ordained a priest in 1962 and received his doctorate in theology from Catholic University of America four years later. He was a professor of theology at Xavier University in Cincinnati for over 30 years. He has authored 19 books in the area of Catholic spirituality. He has 3 books, the priestly newsletters, which include the newsletters from almost six and one-half years. He is devoted to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

 

 

Our Focus

     WE HAVE PRAYER CHAPTERS PRAYING ALL OVER THE WORLD for the priests, the Church, and the world in 8 languages.

     OUR PRIMARY FOCUS is the circulation of a newsletter.

    WE CIRCULATED PRIESTLY WRITINGS written by Fr. Edward Carter, S.J., a Jesuit Theologian with a Doctor's degree in Theology and author of 19 books, to about 70,000 priests in the world in both English and Spanish. Father Carter was a professor of Theology for over 30 years. We circulated these writings for over 16 years. We sent the Priestly Newsletter from Fr. Pasquini and his books, another Jesuit and Fr. Joe Robinson's homilies. We have sent 15,000,000 priestly newsletters to priests and hierarchy loose and in books in 16 years.  


      
Fr. John Pasquini
 

 

     Fr. Joe Robinson

  The newsletter is centered in consecration to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. It features writings regarding our union with Jesus and the Father and the Holy Spirit and Mary. The newsletter also stresses the Eucharist, the Church, prayer, and one's responsibility regarding the social order. The newsletter stresses sound doctrine as found in Scripture, the writings of the Popes and other Church documents. It also presents selected writings from the saints and competent priest-theologians and others.

     The newsletter can be used by all for development in the spiritual life centered in consecration. Fr. Joe's homilies are about the scripture readings, the Eucharist, everyday spirituality.
