Prayer for Grace for our Country
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. We consecrate our country to the Sacred Heart and Immaculate Heart and all our dioceses, and beg for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit. God help us. We pray for our families, the priests, the Church and the world. In the Name of Jesus please hear us, we pray. We pray for our president and leaders. We pray that we are united as one nation under God to work together in love as God wants.

A message for the Earth from Jesus
January 22, 1998
I am the Good Shepherd, these are My prayers, the prayers I give to help renew the Church and the world, all prayer chapters are asked to include these prayers (found in the Shepherds of Christ Prayer Manual). As My Apostles and Shepherds I ask you to encourage all existing Chapters to try to encourage all existing prayer groups to pray the Shepherds of Christ prayers. Encourage all Churches to pray these prayers. It is most urgent that the people of this earth concur with the Father's wishes to begin Prayer Chapters. This is an urgent request from the Good Shepherd. The flock will become one when they have given their hearts to Jesus and Mary. Encourage all priests to pray the Shepherds of Christ prayers. Your world will be lighted with great light as the people of this earth pray these prayers.
My promise is this to you My beloved earth: When you give your heart to Me and spread the devotion to My Sacred Heart, I will write your name In My Heart. I promise to give the greatest graces when you pray these prayers for renewal of the Church and the world and take all who pray them deeply into My Heart. The prayers I give will bring about the reign of My Sacred Heart and the triumph of Mary's Immaculate Heart.

Today is Fr. Carter's birthday.
Here is a message Jesus gave Fr. Carter - 20 1/2
July 31, 1994
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)
Most Sacred Heart of Jesus we place our trust in You.
Presence, we want to know God's presence in
our graced, baptized soul –
We ask You dear God to help us to be grateful
and joyful to know and love and
serve You today in our lives, but
not to be overwhelmed in our lives,
but confident in Your merciful love.
When we are suffering or worrying we
must stop and ask Him to help us
and feel His presence with us and His
Might able to help us with whatever it is.
I want to know His presence in My
graced, baptized soul. We celebrated Christmas
and we celebrated "God with us".
We are His instruments, His witnesses
to be what He wants us to be –
We are children of God –
When we pray the Our Father we recognize
Our Father – we give Him praise,
we recognize that He has a plan for us
and for men, we tell God we want His
will – We ask God to nourish us and
feed us our daily bread – we pray for spiritual
food to feed us and we ask for forgiveness
for our trespasses and tell God we want
the grace to forgive others and we pray
for grace to not give into temptation
and be delivered from evil.
What a prayer for the child of God praying
to their Father. Jesus told us to pray
We have the beautiful prayer Jesus gave
Fr. Carter to pray for the priests, the Church
and the world –
We have the Litanies to Mary and Jesus –
We have the Holy Spirit Prayers Jesus told
me to write and the scripture with
R. We can pray and communicate to God –
We need that grace – to be filled more
abundantly with God's life in us –
That we can see with His eyes –
see with the soul – His vision –
not only to see what is seen with naked vision
our eyes, but to see with the soul –
His vision for us in everything –
To know God's presence with us –
To reach for our mission with enthusiasm and
live being one in Him
Galatians 2: 19-20
...I have been crucified with Christ and yet I am alive; yet it is no longer I, but Christ living in me.
Cloth us God with Your grace –
lest we stumble and fall –
We are little ones that need
Your Fatherly protection –
the hand of God reaching out to
us His little child –
The light of God to light our path –
The hope that our lives lived for Him
will bring light and peace to others
as we witness to him in our
lives, by our example and love.

Excerpt from October 5, 2014
Mary: I loved
God in my life as a little
child of my Father, the Mother of
Jesus and the Spouse of the Holy Spirit –
I am the singular vessel –
I show you my Immaculate Heart –
You, as handmaids of
Jesus, are to live
your life to be pure in heart –
I am Mary, the Immaculate Heart –
I give you my heart
to come and dwell
in my heart, your spiritual womb –
I am your spiritual Mother –
You are not alone –
I want you to be united to me –
I give you my love
as your spiritual Mother,
I want you to pray through my powerful
I appeared to you
October 2, 2014 to teach you
about intercession through My Immaculate
appeared to me October 2, 2014 in
magnificent light and her beauty was
unmeasured in her faces she showed
me. There was a silence as I watched the vision –
a silence, so still in the vision, but the
handmaids and another person prayed the rosary
outside the apparition room in one voice –
it sounded very unified and strong
and sincere, but in her vision I
know a profound stillness as I
watched Mary in such enormous
light, pray, her mouth moving so
distinctly, so pronounced with them as
they prayed. I continued to watch this
for the first two decades of the rosary,
for apparitions seem to leave me
weak sometimes and then I am
wrapped in that peace of having
seen her and left listless or tired.
She prayed pronounced with them and
it looked as if in great unity with
them. Unity is the word I knew –
Unity and sincerity in their prayers
and unity of the Mother of God appearing
before me in such beauty and light –
praying in unity with them, but there
was only stillness in the apparition –
I have an
apostle rosary I place on
the Mary statue in the apparition
room and when I pray the rosary
or lead the rosary in the room
I hold that rosary many times – I lead
the beginning of every bead only with
Hail Mary and they say all the rest of
the prayer. It is a profound unity in
one voice I hear when they are
out there many times, sometimes I
feel the sound is the sound of unity
I hear that is joined by what God
is allowing me to hear, the songs I
lead are very united in perfect
voice and very angelic. The voices
perfectly synchronized and heavenly
sounding and there is absolute
stillness in the vision.
2nd as they prayed and I
heard this unity from those outside the
apparition room – I saw the same
way visions of Mary change for the
20 years she has appeared to me –
Stillness and her beautiful face changes
from different faces without a noise,
so smooth as when the Monstrance
in China has changed positions –
it turns without a noise, without
any seeing it turn, it is in motion
without detectable motion of it
like this in the vision –
surrounded in light and the faces
of the Virgin different as her faces
changed, one more beautiful and
different than the other – so beautiful
and a profound response of her
answering or praying with the
prayers united outside the room –
in stillness of her response inside –
I have never seen this before – it was
at a certain point and made clear
to me – she held an invisible rosary
and her fingers were going from bead to bead
as she prayed with them.
this vision for as long as I
could, then I was left weak and
sort of limp, hearing the praying outside
and continuing to just bath in a
I was not
focused on Jesus, but to
the left I saw light and knew His
presence in there likewise, Mary's
apparition was the focus and she was
giving this gift to us in the first day of
retreat. Many times I receive an
apparition of Mary on the 2nd
of the month and sometimes the 3rd
too, many times the 5th. It is not unusual
for me to see Mary on the 2nd.
This date to me, reminds me of the Two Hearts,
of Jesus and Mary and the calling
I receive to come do the retreat
the 2nd to the 5th in the Clearwater
As I watched
Mary pray more profoundly
than I ever saw with those outside and
heard such profound unity in their
prayers, although Mary looked in
complete unity with them, I wondered
if she would say
Hail Mary –
Holy Mary – praying this –
I have wondered this before –
The next day I
was told of Mary's powerful
intercession, when we pray and ask her
to intercede for us to God –
Mother of God –
Mary, the pure and Immaculate Heart –
Mary, our Mother,
God, Our Heavenly Father,
Jesus, the Son of God and her
Spouse the Holy Spirit.
In this place
heaven showed me –
how powerfully Mary prays as
an intercessor –
the perfect prayer –
the pure prayer –
a heavenly prayer of intercession
to her Son Jesus as we
know and were shown the
prayer of Mary to her Son at
the Marriage of Cana –
To you, as a
messenger, I account this
experience - for never will I have such
an understanding of Mary's powerful
intercession as I have now from

Galatians 4: 4-7
but when the completion of the time came, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born a subject of the Law, to redeem the subjects of the Law, so that we could receive adoption as sons. As you are sons, God has sent into our hearts the Spirit of his Son crying, ‘Abba, Father’; and so you are no longer a slave, but a son; and if a son, then an heir, by God’s own act.
Luke 2: 15-19
Now it happened that when the angels had gone from them into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, 'Let us go to Bethlehem and see this event which the Lord has made known to us.' So they hurried away and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby lying in the manger. When they saw the child they repeated what they had been told about him, and everyone who heard it was astonished at what the shepherds said to them. As for Mary, she treasured all these things and pondered them in her heart.
. . .
The warmth of Your love, God –
Let us walk in surrendering love and
gratitude to You and
seek to be under You –
filled by You –
never apart from You –
In this we are confident and strengthened
as we are filled more and more by God –
Embraced by His loving arm –
Permeated with His grace, His life in
us filling us –
I am Yours – Lord
I come to do Your will –
It is in the simple things of life –
We know His strength in all we do –
We let go to Him –
He is Almighty –
We are the soul, waiting His favor –
The beauty of a rose –
The vast sky –
The wide ocean –
The love of children, little ones,
The deep love of friendship –
These are everlasting – the love
of friends –
God grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change...
Courage to change the things I can
and Wisdom to know the difference.
R. I look to the heavens –
From there comes my help –
My life is in Him!!
Genesis 12: 1-7
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. Abram took his wife Sarai, his nephew Lot, all the possessions they had amassed and the people they had acquired in Haran. They set off for the land of Canaan, and arrived there.
Abram passed through the country as far as the holy place at Shechem, the Oak of Moreh. The Canaanites were in the country at the time. Yahweh appeared to Abram and said, ‘I shall give this country to your progeny.’ And there, Abram built an altar to Yahweh who had appeared to him.
R. Praise God –
Praise Him with the trumpet –
Be attentive to God who is
close in our every breath –
Breathe in Jesus –
Breathe out fear
Breathe in Jesus
Breathe out fear
Let the eyes see the care He gives
to the flowers and
ask ourselves – are not we
far more precious than the flowers?
Do we see the genealogy and know
how God has a Plan in
salvation history in our
lives – why do we ignore
such a calling –
Jesus: Rise up Jerusalem –
Your time has come –
Open your eyes to the Lord and
Quit, I beg you, burying your head in the sand.
Why do you worship the rocks and
Ignore your Creator –
Why do you bury your head in the
sand, Jerusalem –
Raise your eyes to the heavens and see
the sky by day, the star-studded
sky by night –
Oh Jerusalem, you are blinded and
reach for the earthy –
Come to the mountain top and
see the city that is sleeping
in darkness –
Pray, Jerusalem, Pray for your
ancestors to pray with you –
pray for a new day of brightness and light
among the people walking in darkness –

R. God loves us with His unfathomable love –
We are the poor banished children of Eve and
He loves us so much –
Who are we that God loves us so much.
The angel of Portugal appeared to the children
in 1916 before Mary's apparitions –
that was almost 100 years ago.
Excerpt from The Spirituality of Fatima
by Fr. Edward Carter, S.J.
Before receiving the six apparitions of Our Lady, May through October of 1917, the three Fatima visionaries were visited by an angel on three different occasions during the preceding year. He appeared to them in the spring, summer, and fall. Lucia (now Sr. Lucia) describes the springtime apparition of the angel:
"My God, I believe, I adore, I hope and I love You! I ask pardon of You for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not hope and do not love You."
Then, rising he said: "Pray thus. The Hearts of Jesus and Mary are attentive to the voice of your supplications."
His words engraved themselves so deeply on our minds that we could never forget them
During the summer of 1916, the angel again appeared to the three visionaries. He said to them:
Pray! Pray a great deal. The Hearts of Jesus and Mary have merciful designs on you. Offer prayers and sacrifices continually to the Most High. Make everything you do a sacrifice, and offer it as an act of reparation for the sins by which God is offended, and as a petition for the conversion of sinners. Bring peace to our country in this way.... I am the Guardian Angel of Portugal Accept and bear with submission all the sufferings the Lord will send you.
In the fall of the same year, the angel visited the visionaries a final time:
The angel came...bearing a golden chalice in one hand and a Host above it in the other. The amazed children noticed that drops of blood were falling from the Host into the chalice. Presently, the angel left both suspended in mid-air and prostrated himself on the ground, saying this beautiful prayer: "Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, I adore You profoundly. I offer You the most precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ, present in all tabernacles of the world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges, and indifference by which He is offended. By the infinite merits of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and [the intercession of] the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg of Thee the conversion of poor sinners."
Sr. Lucia relates how the angel gave them Communion:
Then, rising, he took the chalice and the Host in his hand. He gave the Sacred Host to me and shared the Blood from the chalice between Jacinta and Francisco, saying as he did so:
"Take and drink the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, horribly outraged by ungrateful men! Make reparation for their crimes and console your God."
Reflecting upon these messages of the angel, we see how much they contain for our spiritual instruction.

Hebrews 1: 1-6
At many moments in the past and by many means, God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets; but in our time, the final days, he has spoken to us in the person of his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things and through whom he made the ages. He is the reflection of God's glory and bears the impress of God's own being, sustaining all things by his powerful command; and now that he has purged sins away, he has taken his seat at the right hand of the divine Majesty on high. So he is now as far above the angels as the title which he has inherited is higher than their own name.
To which of the angels, then, has God ever said:
You are my Son, today I have fathered you,
I shall be a father to him and he a son to me?
Again, when he brings the First-born into the world, he says:
Let all the angels of God pay him homage.
Mark 1: 14-20
After John had been arrested, Jesus went into Galilee. There he proclaimed the gospel from God saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is close at hand. Repent, and believe the gospel.’
As he was walking along by the Lake of Galilee he saw Simon and Simon’s brother Andrew casting a net in the lake—for they were fishermen. And Jesus said to them, ‘Come after me and I will make you into fishers of people.’ And at once they left their nets and followed him.
Going on a little further, he saw James son of Zebedee and his brother John; they too were in their boat, mending the nets. At once he called them and, leaving their father Zebedee in the boat with the men he employed, they went after him.
Hebrews 3: 7-14
That is why, as the Holy Spirit says:
If only you would listen to him today!
Do not harden your hearts,
as at the rebellion,
as at the time of testing in the desert,
when your ancestors challenged me,
and put me to the test,
and saw what I could do
for forty years.
That was why
that generation sickened me
and I said, ‘Always fickle hearts,
that cannot grasp my ways!’
And then in my anger I swore
that they would never enter my place of rest.
Take care, brothers, that none of you ever has a wicked heart, so unbelieving as to turn away from the living God. Every day, as long as this today lasts, keep encouraging one another so that none of you is hardened by the lure of sin, because we have been granted a share with Christ only if we keep the grasp of our first confidence firm to the end.
Mark 1: 40-45
A man suffering from a virulent skin–disease came to him and pleaded on his knees saying, ‘If you are willing, you can cleanse me.’ Feeling sorry for him, Jesus stretched out his hand, touched him and said to him, ‘I am willing. Be cleansed.’ And at once the skin–disease left him and he was cleansed. And at once Jesus sternly sent him away and said to him, ‘Mind you tell no one anything, but go and show yourself to the priest, and make the offering for your cleansing prescribed by Moses as evidence to them.’ The man went away, but then started freely proclaiming and telling the story everywhere, so that Jesus could no longer go openly into any town, but stayed outside in deserted places. Even so, people from all around kept coming to him.

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
