Dear Father united to Jesus in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, the Sacrifice of Calvary sacramentally made present, celebrated around the world, in the Holy Spirit. We offer up all we do united to the Mass. We unite in one mind and one heart as members of the mystical body of Christ, with Christ our head in the pure and holy Hearts of Jesus and Mary, through the powerful intercession of Mary with all the angels and saints and souls in purgatory, and we beg for the saving grace, for our country, the United States. Please help us. We further pray for unity to always do the will of God in love. We spread the Blood of Jesus on the leaders and people of the United States and cast the devil into hell.

R. Christ is our Life.
In Him is no darkness –
The gift we have been given
in baptism is indeed a
God opens up the supernatural
life to us in baptism.
The supernatural virtues of faith,
hope and love are infused on
We need to focus on our
hearts. Shepherds of Christ is about
this – it's about having light in
our hearts and souls. It is
about being set free from
slavery of sin, slavery of
darkness, slavery of chaos and
surprise as one can sabotage
their own life by what they
give into that is dark in their
thinking and hearts. It is saying
"yes" to truth, "yes" to being
pure like Mary – it is about
recognizing what we have
done that is wrong and with God's
grace admitting it – telling God
and others we are sorry and
with a firm purpose of amendment
not to sin in hateful, lying ways
again and beg for God's mercy.
God intends us to work with
others, to love likened to Him,
to not give into power and control
because we have an agenda
and want to own things that's
not ours and run things in
ways opposed to God's will.
What happened to Eve when she
had her own agenda opposed to
God, disobedient to God in the
Garden. We know what obedience
under God, under authority means
we do what is asked of us –
A person who when a child was abused
and forced by someone, who was to be a
trustworthy member of the family who
was to protect them, forced them to
accept abuse upon them, will have
trust issues and recovery
is needed. God is to be trusted and
God sends trust-worthy people
in our lives to love us and
help us and we have to learn
because we may have been abused
by someone when young, that
God has given us people in
our lives to help us and to
trust, but we seek these trust -
worthy people and pray about
who they are and God's will
for us to do the work of loving
and giving He has called us
to. We pray for guidance so
we can trust others that can help
us and lead us closer and
closer to deeper intimacy with
God. We may have a burglar
break in our house some
day, but we do not board
shut the front door for the
rest of our lives. We do not
base what we should do by
the evil another person did
We base what we do on
God's will for us. We love God's
will for us, we seek it, we
spend our life trying to live God's
will in all we do, all day,
every day. We live by the Ten
Commandments. The devil is
the father of lies, we do not
lie. God is absolute truth –
Jesus is the way, the truth
and the life. If we follow
the wrong road to our destiny
we end up at the wrong place.
We walk in the footsteps of
Jesus because He is the
way we are to follow –
Jesus is life. When we run
our lives in utter chaos,
or secrets, or unpredictability
for drama and power – we
are on the wrong road and
we aren't following Jesus,
we will not have life.
We are called by God to love –
to give in our vocation what
God asks of us – to give
lovingly, to observe order
and structure and to co-operate
to the finish what God expects
of us, bringing fruit for God's Kingdom,
being a witness of love and truth
and unity before others.
God loves us so much and He
wants us to live for the purpose
He created us.
God created us to use us to
help others and ourselves to
help in the work of redemption.
We are not here willy-nilly –
God created us uniquely for
a purpose. Others working God's
plan around us are important
to His plan too. God has called
us to grow in greater strength
in Him. This takes disciplining
our weak wills – this takes
obedience to God's laws – this
takes saying "no" to drama,
wanting our way, chaos,
anger acted out on innocent
God is all good. We are
to be loving and kind to
others and not treat our
brothers as enemies.
Jesus and Mary show us
how to be more and more holy.
We can think of the period of
Judges in Israel. Samuel was
a good judge – he anointed
Saul to be a good king. Saul
may have started out okay, but
he soon gave into his own
ways that were disobedient
to God and sinful. In reading
about Saul the King we see
how he let darkness grip
him because he did his
own will in disobedience to
God and we see what he did
had terrible consequences.
God gives us structure in our
lives. Power comes from God
and He gives authority to people
he places in just authority over
If the person in authority over
others, over a place does their
own plan based on their
old wounds they are acting
out - that needs to be healed –
the place is in trouble. And
the person in authority can force
bedlam on a place, but
like the life of Saul the King –
he took his focus off of
obedience to God and chose
more and more evil and
darkness. He wanted his evil –
He turned from what was right –
He was full of pride.
We have a great Bible movie –
Samuel then anointed
David after Saul was so
disobedient and willful. This
just made Saul more ugly!
David was a young shepherd boy,
a very small child, but God
was behind him. David united
the tribes of Israel into a
great nation – he made
Jerusalem the capitol of the
David loved God, but he
sinned and was punished
for his sin, but he repented.
He deeply loved God –
He wrote the Psalms
in the Bible. Solomon
was his son and built
God a temple, but he got
into disobedience and sin.
Jesus came from the house of David.
God helped His chosen people –
some leaders did their evil things
like Saul and God sent David.
God has all the power –
We are to obey God and not
use power to bring dysfunction
and control on others.
Our lives should be
constant in learning more
and more to live by God's
will and to be obedient to
Him and love His will,
seek His will and listen to the
guides God sends us.
God gives us the scriptures
and the Eucharist, this is
the Bread of Life.
We are to live by the
scriptures, learn the right
path from the scriptures,
obey the 10 Commandments
and obey the Church. We as
members of the body of
Christ through baptism
are to see what we do in
doing God's will effects the
whole body of the Church.
God called Saul and
Saul became evil. Saul had
a free will – Saul disobeyed
God. Samuel told him and
Saul said he would do what
he wanted. Saul was a sinful
leader and he was blocking
God's plan because of his
Ezekiel 3: 17-21
'Son of man, I have appointed you as watchman for the House of Israel. When you hear a word from my mouth, warn them from me. If I say to someone wicked, "You will die," and you do not warn this person; if you do not speak to warn someone wicked to renounce evil and so save his life, it is the wicked person who will die for the guilt, but I shall hold you responsible for that death. If, however, you do warn someone wicked who then fails to renounce wickedness and evil ways, the wicked person will die for the guilt, but you yourself will have saved your life. When someone upright renounces uprightness to do evil and I set a trap for him, it is he who will die; since you failed to warn him, he will die for his guilt, and the uprightness he practised will no longer be remembered; but I shall hold you responsible for his death. If, however, you warn someone upright not to sin and this person does not sin, such a one will live, thanks to your warning, and you too will have saved your life.’
R. God leads us to change
our ways not likened to Him
and live the life of resurrection
in Him. A person can use survival
tactics they practiced their whole
life when they don't need survival
tactics from a dysfunctional life.
If they are a leader they can try
to force their agenda on a plan
God has to help souls and
help others grow as He wants.
We must fight against regression
and weaknesses and doing
our own dysfunctional agenda.
We should not challenge God's
plan, God's just authority,
but challenge ourselves to
grow in His will in love and
unite as He desires helping the
Body of Christ to be ever stronger
We live in families and if
we look at the first family –
Eve sinned – disobeyed – she
influenced Adam to disobey –
Cain killed his brother Abel
because he was prideful, jealous,
envious. Our first family of
the human race had a rough
God chose Noah to build
an Ark because corruption
was so bad. The flood pre-figures
baptism. God flooded the earth,
but Noah's family was saved
and the animals on the Ark.
From this the human race
continued after the flood.
R. Almost a month after
Mary's apparitions in Florida
God the Father gave me this
20 Years Ago
From Blue Book 14
January 18, 1997
God the Father: My Dear Children,
I am the Father. My plan is unfolding through you, My beloved priest, Fr. Carter, and Rita and the core group in the Shepherds of Christ Movement.
I tell you all to read the accounts concerning Noah. Nowhere in history has God been offended as He is this day by this sinful world. You will suffer a fate for the offenses against God.
Mary appeared at Fatima to warn you, the sinful children, how they were offending God, but you did not listen. The war did not change the hearts of many evil men.
I warn you through My beloved daughter, Mary. You did not heed her warnings. Disobedience against the Mother I gave you displeases Me greatly. Mary is the Mother of all children. Mary is a gift from Me, but you are willful and abuse the gift I send you.
You do not make reparation to her Immaculate Heart; you continue to offend her. I will not tolerate the deeds of evil men any longer.
My plan will unfold. Any disobedience to these messages given by Me, My Son, or your Mother Mary will cause Me great displeasure.
I am the Father, the Almighty God, the Alpha, the Omega; you are a sinful people, a chosen race sinning against a loving God.
I am angered at your ways for they are not My ways, you have run amuck, you have offended your God, you have disobeyed your Mother and My beloved Son who died to save you.
I will act on all who continue in such sin. The sheep will be separated from the goats; the goats will receive punishment for their deed. Heaven and earth will kiss, there will be love in all hearts, justice will prevail and My children will be children of light, children that obey as I intended from the beginning.
Oh indeed My sweet messenger, I look to the earth and see the darkness, I see the disobedience of men against their Mother. I know the deeds committed and the evil in the hearts of so many. Justice will prevail and I will wipe out the earth. Only the children of light will remain, those who have given their hearts to their Mother Mary.
Do you think I send your Mother Mary as a messenger to be disobeyed by willful children? What do you think about at night, the cat, the dog, the fish? You don't know love. You don't love God or one another. This is My command to you, to love. You are a sinful, willful race, and the devil will vanish from the hearts of the children of light for they will be under the protection of her Immaculate Heart, the other children will be wiped off the face of the earth.
Disobey My messenger, ignore your Mother, ignore the Son in these messages. Ignore My Son who died for you.
Oh you sinful people filled with pride and disobedience, I give you the directions here to turn your hearts to love.
My Son has revealed Himself as never before in history into His tremendous love for men and you treat Our gift with such indifference.
I am angered at the lack of support to spread the messages of My Son's love for all.
You worry for funds, worry more, I am God the Father, the Almighty God. You disobeyed Mary, you disobeyed Jesus, now you will disobey Me?
You must obey My directions, the directions given through My Son, Jesus for the unfolding of the Father's plan.
No longer will I wait while willful men check and deliberate and disobey.
My plan will unfold through the Shepherds of Christ Movement.
I am talking through these messages given by My Son and Mary to tell you how to accomplish this task of carrying out My plan.
You must obey. The directions are given in these messages to spread the fire of God's love across this earth, to renew the Church and the world.
Because of willful men these messages have been held in check.
I am God, the maker of all things. You have made money your god. I want obedience, the funds will come when you obey all of the directions I have given to you.
Anyone who interferes with these messages will be removed.
These are the messages I give to the world. Fr. Carter's newsletter will teach the priests, all they need to know to be holy, loving priests.
Many priests are not loving, they are cold in their hearts. I will instruct the clergy through the newsletter.
My Son is the Chief Priest and Teacher. He has taught the world the secrets of His Heart through the writings of Fr. Carter and Rita, to go to men to check the value of these writings displeases Me.
You must have faith, you must study the entire revelations given here. You are not valuing My great gift to you.
I am the power, I am God, to the ends of the earth, I will be with you. My plan will unfold. You must think big, not on a human level. You must come to Me.
Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy Name, Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
I am telling you to circulate the tape of January 13 (1997) as soon as possible. This tape must be released to the world. It is the message to go with the apparition on the building in Florida.
You must make every connection with Mary's message given December 12 (1996) and the messages given by Mary with the apparition of her on the building in Florida.
Time is very short and My patience is very thin. I will strike the earth and the evil men will scatter and there will be a reign of peace where men will love God as I intended. The evil men will be chastised for I sent your Mother to warn you and you disobeyed. I gave My Son as a sacrifice and you treated Him with indifference. I am angry at the creatures on this earth. I will lessen the chastisement if you make reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
Oh willful children, you disobey your Mother, you are unloving and willful and your ways are evil. You are a sinful race.
I am sending water, rain to quench your thirst, My beloved children of light; I am sending fire to burn the fields for the sinful children, they will suffer drought and will fall to the ground dead, they will know fire, they will know the wrath of God. For I speak and I am ignored.
I am using the Shepherds of Christ Movement to majorly carry out the plan begun at Fatima. Every day lost is a lost day. I give to you Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary as your directions to help the plan unfold. Circulate these rosaries to all chapters and stress their importance.
The tape of January 13 (1997) is important to the world. The tape must be circulated with the apparition in Florida and the messages typed and put on the Internet with the rest of the messages I have given. The connection must be made between the apparition and the Shepherds of Christ Movement.
Satan will attack you strongly, he will create division and give messages through other visionaries to get you off coarse. You must obey My directions given in these messages to help bring about the completion of the Fatima message.
I will weed out anyone interfering with My plan.
I will tell you when you have deviated from My plan, do not taunt My messenger, this displeases Me. Read the messages for direction and obey them.
The directions given are strong to correct a sick world. You must quit focusing on the messenger and obey Me.
I am the Father, these are My messages to bring about the reign of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the triumph of Mary's Immaculate Heart.
You think of money and miss the gift given. You are men bolted to the earth. You must obey Me. I have all the power.

R. Jesus came and died for our
sins – so we could be united
to God the Father in an
intimate love union.
Jesus died for love of us – Jesus
rose so we could have new
life – Death / Resurrection the Pascal
Mystery. The victory is won.
The devil wants people to
choose to bring failure and
darkness in their journey here
We are God's instruments to
help renew the Church and the
world, but we don't hold
onto 40 year anger and
project it on others or
remain in darkness, sin
and hate when God is love
and has given us a sharing
in His life in baptism.
God is faithful – We are to
be faithful to our calling and
Dysfunctional families may
have hurt children terribly,
but we are to admit the truth
of our problems and live

Heavenly Father to help

God forgives our sins when we
ask for forgiveness and seek
His mercy with a firm purpose
2 Corinthians 12: 9-10
but he has answered me, ‘My grace is enough for you: for power is at full stretch in weakness.’ It is, then, about my weaknesses that I am happiest of all to boast, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me; and that is why I am glad of weaknesses, insults, constraints, persecutions and distress for Christ’s sake. For it is when I am weak that I am strong.
Most Sacred Heart of Jesus
I place my Trust in Thee –
R. God gives us His Word –
God gives us the Catechism
of the Catholic Church.
1 Samuel 2: 9
He safeguards the steps of his faithful
but the wicked vanish in darkness
(for human strength can win no victories).
1 John 1: 8-10
If we say, ‘We have no sin,’
we are deceiving ourselves,
and truth has no place in us;
if we acknowledge our sins,
he is trustworthy and upright,
so that he will forgive our sins
and will cleanse us from all evil.
If we say, ‘We have never sinned,’
we make him a liar,
and his word has no place in us.
R. God wants us to live our lives
serving Him every day – doing
His will in love.
We will be judged on how
we lived our days. Our days
are records in our book of
In dysfunctional families
sexual abuse, alcohol –
people could live in secrets
and have love - hate relationships
depending on the abuse and
sick ways of acting –
A person needs to know the
light in their hearts. This
Movement helps people to give
themselves to the Hearts of Jesus and
Mary and have a deep interior union
A person not healed from
dysfunction, abuse could
have lived day after day in
secrets, love - hate relationships,
disorder because of the
dysfunction – isolation – lack
of trust – unpredictability –
not knowing when the other
shoe would drop – so they
can be addicted to this chaos

forced on them as a child.

You Hold the Mighty Medicine
March 6, 1994
Jesus: I am the Son of God. I have such longing for My beloved ones. Spread these messages. I grow tired of telling you, with such emotion--and who hears?
I am talking to you at this Center. I am talking to you! I am asking you to spread the message. You cannot wait. The souls of your brothers are thirsty for this ardent love. They roam this barren desert and find nowhere to lay their heads. If you speak this message, their souls will be fed.
You are the light set on a hill. Your fire will be that by which this world will be lighted. I am talking to you. No one is getting these messages to you. I, God, am speaking to you this very day. What will you do?
I want all to know of the fire of My love. I want their hearts to stir and come to Me with longing and devotion. You busy yourselves and the Son of God is speaking to you about His love.
I want to shake you to My ardent, urgent cry. They are so thirsty for this message. It is the appetite in their soul that craves this ardent union with Me. You possess that which they are craving.
The soul searches this barren desert, seeking as with no other appetite the love of God. You have the mighty medicine for the sickness the world is inflicting on My loved ones.
Who would keep medicine from the sick children? The children who come to you are diseased from this sick world. They are My army. They need their medicine. Every day the disease gets worse. They are coming to you for healing. You have the medicine. It is not lip service about My love. It is emotion that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, loves them so much as to write them letters of His love. It is emotion, love, heartfelt, longing, aching love!
Nothing feeds the starved soul but the love of Jesus. The world is so sick. Like ripples on a pond, one soul madly in love with My Sacred Heart is a powerhouse. One soul, fed by the love of the Sacred Heart, casts a mighty bright light, brighter than any other light because it is powered by God.
Light their hearts. Light the city. Shine on this hill. Send them into this world as the beacon lights in the darkest night. You are this city, set on the hill.
I am the Son of God. I come to you every day. I profess My longing, My loving. You tarry too much. You play a safe game. I am begging you to get My love letters to My beloved ones.
This world gets sicker by the minute. To live in this world is to be under constant attack. They need this ardent love of Mine to understand the attack. I am God. I come to you. I am talking to you. You are the receivers. You cannot wait for anyone's lead. No one can tell you what I, God, am telling you this very day.
While you wait, your children are getting sicker. These letters are for all, young and old alike. These letters are for priests and nuns. These letters speak to them wherever they are. This is the mighty medicine.
Too slow, I tell you! Some are dropping over from the disease. This is a sickness worse than any flu. It kills babies and loses men's souls. They are dying from this disease. The world is sending souls into hell. They are dying from the disease of this sick world. You hold the cure. You hold the key to turn men's hearts back to the love of God. You have hand-delivered letters from Jesus Christ and what do you do? I grow tired. I am upset. I am aching. I am begging you to listen. No one will knock on your door and say, "the time is right".
This is your act of faith. You know what one letter does to a person. You contain a book. When will you be ready? I grow tired. I am so upset. Soon is not soon enough. My children are dying from the disease. My babies are murdered. When will they know of My crying for their love?
I am the Son of God. I Am God! I come to you. I talk to you. If you believed I was talking to you, you would listen. I will not make this any clearer. It is your faith that will get you through. You must develop your faith in Me. To give you more signs than this is to make you weak. I have given you just what you need to get this job done.
Give My children their medicine. My church will be packed. People will stay when I, God, am in their breast after Communion. God is inside of you and you run from the church. Where do you go for your answers? Where do you go to be fed? "Give us this day our daily bread."
I, God, come to you in the Eucharist. I sit in your body and you do not relish these sacred moments. These are the most golden gems of your life when the Son of God comes to you and dwells in your breast.
I am alive. I am here with you. I am God. I have spoken again and do you hear? I am talking to you at the Center. This is My place to change this world. I am giving you all you need.
I love you. I am begging you. Jesus.

Guiding Light — The Word Alive in Our Hearts. — Cycle B for 2017/2018
Guiding Light — The Soul Who Could. — Cycle A for 2016/2017
Guiding Light homily series — Reflect on the Word — Cycle B The Word leaves an impression on our souls. In my thoughts and reflections are born a more tangible understanding of these eternal concepts presented in the Gospels and the readings. Anyone can read a sentence, but not anyone can absorb it's true meaning. Truth, in this day and age, is almost a matter of opinion or individual entitlement. We believe that Christ's truth is our Roman Catholic Church. We, as priests, champion it's teachings; we are ambassadors for the Pope and Christ to those faces looking at us. We are the light by which our congregation reads to reflect upon real truth and we do it hand in hand. $15
Guiding Light homily series — Steadfast to the Son — Cycle A The sunflower is a great example of how we should be steadfastly guided by light. What a powerful thought that this exceptional plant is not stuck in one pose day in and day out, yet adaptable and magnetized to the sun. We feel the same about our Son. Our heads turns to face Christ as each day presents its challenges to find light. We join together like plants in a field and soak up the Son through the pulpit. We are a warm circle of strength using the wind of our breath to carry our priests' words, Christ's words, to new rich soil. $15
Guiding Light — Focusing on the Word — Cycle B At times we may feel that our path to Christ is a bit "out of focus". Like the disciples in the Book of Mark, this ordinary life clouds our vision of Christ's Divinity. We may doubt the practicality or possibility of applying His teachings and example to our modern life. Cycle B's homilies are a "guiding light" to help us realize Jesus' Messianic greatness and His promise of better things to come. $15
Guiding Light — Feed My Soul — Cycle C In a world rapidly advancing and encouraging personal gain, we are faced with modern problems. There is a challenge to find time in our busy schedules for Sunday Mass or a family meal. We are able to research, shop, bank and even work without hearing one human voice. It is no wonder that we may often feel disconnected and famished at our week's end. In Fr. Joe's third book of homilies from Cycle C, we are reminded of the charity that Christ intended us to show each other. We have a calling to turn the other cheek and be the Good Samaritan to others. We are rewarded with the Father's kingdom and love when we are not worthy. We are not left alone or hungry. $15

Priestly Newsletter — 2000 #1 — CD. — Christ is Our Strength — Fr. Edward Carter, S.J. read it the year he died. It is so beautiful. "This brief passage contains one of the greatest lessons of the spiritual life. As we progress along our spiritual journey, we become increasingly aware of how weak we are in our—selves, but how strong we are in Christ. To experience our weakness involves suffering. The degree and kind of suffering can vary. The suffering can include the experience of the classical dark night of the spirit as described by St. John of the Cross. One of the main purposes of the dark night is to make a person keenly aware of his or her helplessness without God." quote by Fr. Carter from the newsletter $10
