Consecration Prayer for Peace

I consecrate Russia and the Ukraine to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

I further consecrate the priests, the Church and the world to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Immaculate Heart of Mary.

I do this in the name of Jesus in as far as I am able, united to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, praying to the Father, in the Holy Spirit, with all the angels and saints and the souls in purgatory through the powerful intercession of Mary, Queen of Peace. Amen.

I further consecrate myself, all members of my family and ask the Holy Spirit to fill us. I spread the Blood of Jesus on all above, I cast the devil into hell away from all of us and consecrate all persons, in as far as I am able,  to the Sacred Heart and Immaculate Heart.

 

Prayer for Grace for Election and 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.

R. Without the priest we don't
have the Eucharist!!

30 years ago Fr. Carter, on the
Feast of St. Ignatius said he
received this message to start
Prayer Chapters praying for
the priest, the Church and the
world.
 

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)


R. He then proceeded to spread
the Priestly writing all over the
world and to hierarchy and to
translate prayers in English,
Spanish and other languages.

Fr. Carter S.J.
told me that we could reach
80% of the world if things
were translated in English
and Spanish.

He had most of the Priestly
Newsletters translated in
Spanish, some other languages
and the prayers in 8 languages
with devotion to the Sacred
Heart and Immaculate Heart
praying for the priests, the
Church and the world. These
prayers have the Church’s
Imprimatur in all languages.

All his writings and translations
of Fr. Carter went through his
Jesuit superiors.

30 years ago we have tried to
begin these prayer chapters all
over the world.

Devotions to the Sacred Heart
and Immaculate Heart are showing
special love (not just mentioning
their names)
Devotions, consecrations, serious
intimacy with the Sacred Heart and
Immaculate Heart.

Father Carter said dwelling in the
Hearts of Jesus and Mary is our
“little heaven on earth”.

We circulated about 17,000,000
Priestly Newsletters in these 30
years loose and in books and
about a million of Fr. Joe’s
homily books over 16 years.

We have put all the Prayers Jesus
told Fr. Carter to put in Shepherds
of Christ Prayer Manual in all
million books of Fr. Joe’s with
devotion to the Sacred Heart and
Immaculate Heart praying for the
priest, the Church and the world.

Fr. Carter also received the message
from Jesus for the Apostles of the
Eucharistic Heart of Jesus praying
2 hours a week before the Blessed
Sacrament especially for hierarchy
and priests.

Jesus led the quiet life for 30 years.

We need these prayers for the priest,
Morning Offering for priest, the
Church and the world.

Fr. Carter died December 18th,
10 months later.


From Fr. Carter's Homily Book 

February 18, 2000

HOMILY – Well, what should I say to you. It comes to my heart that I should start off telling you about the Holy Family’s house, the little home they lived in, in Nazareth, which is now situated/surrounded by a Basilica Church in Loreto, Italy. And I had the privilege of visiting that shrine. How did their house get there—their little home all the way from Nazareth to Loreto, Italy? There’re different theories on it. One which seems very plausible to me, is, that during one of the crusades, when the crusaders were in the Holy Land, they had great reason to fear that the home of the Holy Family, the little house would be destroyed by the enemies of Christianity. So they dismantled it and brought it back by ship and then it was reassembled there at Loreto.

    And there is scientific proof to back this up, for instance they say that the stone out of which the Holy Family home/house was built is that which is used in the Holy Land and it’s not indigenous at all to Italy. So I really do believe, that is the house where Jesus and Mary lived at Nazareth. And one of the first things that strikes you about it is, how tiny it is – very, very small – one more indication that Our Lord did notneed the trappings of this earth, wealth and palatial surroundings and so forth to prove, to show His greatness. He was and is great, simply, because what He is in Himself, who He is. And we get the same lesson, that’s one of the lessons which comes out of His birth at Bethlehem; the kings of this earth, come into this world, with great palatial showings and all the fanfare which surrounds the life of royalty and yet the King of kings, comes in this world in the simplest surroundings. Again, He teaches us many lessons from this, one of them certainly is, where does true greatness lie? It doesn’t lie in the things which are outside of you, the things which surround you, it lies within your very depths.

    I think all of you here at China give a great witness to life of Jesus, Mary and Joseph at Nazareth and to the birthplace of Jesus, in Bethlehem. Your life is so simple. It is so hidden and yet like the life of Jesus at Nazareth, it is meant to be redemptive. His life certainly was redemptive those first 33 years of His existence. And I think, I said in a homily to you, some months ago, that if we had it to plan we certainly would have arranged, I’m sure all of us, Jesus’ life here on earth differently. I don’t think in the depths of our heart if we’re honest with ourselves, if the Father says, “you map out the way you think Jesus, My Son, should live here below in the time allotted,” who of us, who of us, would have had Him hidden away for 10/11ths of that mortal life span. We would have given much more time to His public life. And here Jesus, under the Father, teaches us a great lesson – that we share in His redemptive efforts, proportionate to the depth of our love and as that life of love, is supported by faith, and hope, so Jesus takes the most humble places and He takes the most simple living people and He uses those simple places and those simple people to accomplish great things. So glory in your existence here at China, in its hiddenness and ask for the faith to realize more and more the great good you are doing for the Movement and the Church and the world.

    There are so many lives of the saints which are at witness, to this, hidden life of Jesus. And the one that usually comes first to my mind, is that of, St. Therese of Lisieux, who lived that very, very, very hidden life in the cloistered convent at Lisieux and only for nine short years. She entered, as I’m sure you know it, with special dispensation from the pope. She entered at 15 and died at 24. And the good she accomplished in those nine years at Carmel, that was already achieved before she was canonized and people came to know about her great life of holiness. But during those nine short years at Carmel, she was doing so, so, so much, to help in the salvation of souls.

    And her life was so ordinary, so much so in its external framework, so much so that I think it’s, if I remember correctly, her sisters – the nuns with whom she lived with, in the Carmelite convent, they were surprised when her cause for beatification was introduced. And why was her life so great – because she did the simplest things, everything with the great depth of faith and hope and love, those gifts, which the Holy Spirit showered her with, in tremendous depth.

    And so your life, here at China, is in such great imitation of Jesus, Mary and Joseph at Nazareth and such great saints as St. Therese of Lisieux, those saints who lived such a hidden existence. And so first of all, I thank you for persevering in this life. I think I have some more than ordinary insight, into the greatness, you are contributing towards the Movement and the Church and the world. So I thank you, very profusely and I also highly encourage you, to persevere in this life and to pray for the grace, to get a deepened insight into just, how great your life is here at China for the cause of Christ.

    God’s ways are not our ways, nor His thoughts are not our thoughts. And so contrary to the way, that so much of the world thinks and even many in the Church, it puts such great emphasis on those activities which attract public attention and acclaim and so forth. We know that God looks first of all to the depth of love, a love of His will, the depth of loving  conformity to His will – this is how He measures the success of a life. The external framework of which that life is lived as it were as secondary, always secondary to the depth of faith, hope and love, a depth of a loving conformity of one’s will to the Father’s will in Christ, through Christ in the Spirit with a prayerful assistance of Mary our Mother. Amen.

    So in summary, thank you for persevering in your life here. Secondly, pray for a deepened insight into the greatness of your life here, what it means for the Church, the Movement and the world. And thirdly, pray for a great sense of joy for the vocation, the calling Jesus has given you, at least at this time of your life, to your life here in China.

    Holy Family of Nazareth pray for us.

    Heavenly Father, I ask your most special blessings on your specially chosen ones here as I have just put before them and requesting them, suggesting to them, to pray for an increased light of their greatness here and strength to live by that light. So I ask You Heavenly Father abundantly, to give them that grace. Give them great sense of peace and joy here, despite the trials they have to endure as Your Son showed us suffering, even deep suffering, is not contrary to peace in the Lord. Father, let them know how special they are to You. Bless them most abundantly now and all the days of their life. Father, I put this petition before you, through your Son Jesus, in the Holy Spirit, with the prayerful assistance of Mary our Mother. Amen.

    May the Blessing of Almighty God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit descend upon you and remain forever. Amen.

Luminous Mysteries

The Baptism of Jesus

1. Luke 3: 21-23

Jesus is baptised

Now it happened that when all the people had been baptised and while Jesus after his own baptism was at prayer, heaven opened and the Holy Spirit descended on him in a physical form, like a dove. And a voice came from heaven, ‘You are my Son; today have I fathered you.’

When he began, Jesus was about thirty years old, being the son, as it was thought, of Joseph son of Heli,
 

2. John baptized Jesus in the Jordon.

3. The voice of the Father was heard over the waters.

4. This is My beloved Son in whom I am well pleased.

5. This is considered the beginning of Jesus’ public life.

6. The Holy Spirit was seen like a dove over Jesus' head.

7. The heavens above Jesus’ head were thrown open and the voice of the Father was heard.

8. Sonship, the Heavenly Father gave a sign of Jesus’ Sonship to the Father.

9. Mark 9: 7

Some seed fell into thorns, and the thorns grew up and choked it, and it produced no crop.

10. Song refrain: Prepare in the wilderness a highway for our God

 

The Marriage at Cana

1. John 2: 1-10  

On the third day there was a wedding at Cana in Galilee. The mother of Jesus was there, and Jesus and his disciples had also been invited. And they ran out of wine, since the wine provided for the feast had all been used, and the mother of Jesus said to him, ‘They have no wine.’ Jesus said, ‘Woman, what do you want from me? My hour has not come yet.’ His mother said to the servants, ‘Do whatever he tells you.’  There were six stone water jars standing there, meant for the ablutions that are customary among the Jews: each could hold twenty or thirty gallons. Jesus said to the servants, ‘Fill the jars with water,’ and they filled them to the brim. Then he said to them, ‘Draw some out now and take it to the president of the feast.’ They did this; the president tasted the water, and it had turned into wine. Having no idea where it came from—though the servants who had drawn the water knew—the president of the feast called the bridegroom and said, ‘Everyone serves good wine first and the worse wine when the guests are well wined; but you have kept the best wine till now.’ 
 

2. Jesus performed what is considered His first public miracle at the wedding of Cana.

3. Jesus changed water into wine.

4. Mary has powerful intercession.

5. John 1: 32, 34 (Communion Antiphon Second Sunday Ordinary Time)

And John declared, 'I saw the Spirit come down on him like a dove from heaven and rest on him.

I have seen and I testify that he is the Chosen One of God.'

6. Dear God thank You for the bread of life.

7. From the pierced Heart of Jesus flowed Blood and water.
    Blood for the Eucharist, water for baptism.

8. We receive a sharing in His life in baptism and He feeds us with Himself in the Eucharist.

9. Sing: A Priest is a Gift from God

10. Sing: A Song from Jesus

 

The Kingdom of God

1. Matthew 5: 3-12

How blessed are the poor in spirit:
the kingdom of Heaven is theirs.
Blessed are the gentle:
they shall have the earth as inheritance.
Blessed are those who mourn:
they shall be comforted.
Blessed are those
   who hunger and thirst for uprightness:
they shall have their fill.
Blessed are the merciful:
they shall have mercy shown them.
Blessed are the pure in heart:
they shall see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers:
they shall be recognised
   as children of God.
Blessed are those who are persecuted
   in the cause of uprightness:
the kingdom of Heaven is theirs.

Blessed are you when people abuse you and persecute you and
speak all kinds of calumny against you falsely on my account.
Rejoice and be glad, for your reward will be great in heaven; this
is how they persecuted the prophets before you.
 

2. Sing: Jesus, Jesus the Light of the world...
    King of Kings...

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

10. The bread of life is the Word and the Eucharist.
    We are fed by the bread of life. 

    Jesus is the light of the world.

 

The Transfiguration

1. Luke 9:28-36

   Now about eight days after this had been said, he took with him Peter, John and James and went up the mountain to pray. And it happened that, as he was praying, the aspect of his face was changed and his clothing became sparkling white. And suddenly there were two men talking to him; they were Moses and Elijah appearing in glory, and they were speaking of his passing which he was to accomplish in Jerusalem. Peter and his companions were heavy with sleep, but they woke up and saw his glory and the two men standing with him. As these were leaving him, Peter said to Jesus, ‘Master, it is wonderful for us to be here; so let us make three shelters, one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.’ He did not know what he was saying. As he was saying this, a cloud came and covered them with shadow; and when they went into the cloud the disciples were afraid. And a voice came from the cloud saying, ‘This is my Son, the Chosen One. Listen to him.’ And after the voice had spoken, Jesus was found alone. The disciples kept silence and, at that time, told no one what they had seen.
 

2. Moses and Elijah appeared in glory and spoke to Jesus.

3. Moses gave us the Law, the Commandments, Elijah was a prophet.

4. The voice of the Father was heard "This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased, listen to Him".

5. The Lord is King, let us rejoice.

6. Jesus appeared in the brightest white light to them.

7. Jesus' dominion is an everlasting dominion.

8. Sing: I Am a God of Justice


 

9. It was wonderful, Jesus showed Peter, James and John this great vision on Mt. Tabor, and they heard the voice of the Father.

10. This helped prepare them to see Jesus glorified and in great light in His resurrected body.

 

The Institution of the Eucharist

1. 1 Corinthians 11:23-26

For the tradition I received from the Lord and also handed on to you is that on the night he was betrayed, the Lord Jesus took some bread, and after he had given thanks, he broke it, and he said, 'This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me.' And in the same way, with the cup after supper, saying, 'This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Whenever you drink it, do this as a memorial of me.' Whenever you eat this bread, then, and drink this cup, you are proclaiming the Lord's death until he comes.
 

2. Sing: I Love You Jesus

3. Sing: I Am the Bread of Life

4. Jesus is truly present in His Divinity and humanity in the Eucharist.

5. This is a great gift of love where Jesus gives us Himself in the Eucharist.

6. Jesus comes to us Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity in the Eucharist.

7. Luke 9: 11-17

But the crowds got to know and they went after him. He made them welcome and talked to them about the kingdom of God; and he cured those who were in need of healing.

It was late afternoon when the Twelve came up to him and said, 'Send the people away, and they can go to the villages and farms round about to find lodging and food; for we are in a lonely place here.' He replied, 'Give them something to eat yourselves.' But they said, 'We have no more than five loaves and two fish, unless we are to go ourselves and buy food for all these people.' For there were about five thousand men. But he said to his disciples, 'Get them to sit down in parties of about fifty.' They did so and made them all sit down. Then he took the five loaves and two fish, raised his eyes to heaven, and said the blessing over them; then he broke them and handed them to his disciples to distribute among the crowd. They all ate as much as they wanted, and when the scraps left over were collected they filled twelve baskets.
 

8. John 6: 57

As the living Father sent me
and I draw life from the Father,
so whoever eats me
will also draw life from me.
 

9. Dear God we love You so much, thank You for the Eucharist

10. Song: Your Presence Pervades my Soul

    R. These are the Mysteries of Light. 

    Jesus is the Light of the world. 

    Come to me Lord and possess my soul. Amen

    Praise God, Alleluia when permitted, Amen!!!

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. $10

Guiding Light - Steadfast to the Son
Inspiring Homilies Covering Cycle A of the Litugical Year
$ 10.00

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. $10

Guiding Light - Focusing on the Word
Inspiring Homilies Covering Cycle B of the Litugical Year
$ 10.00

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. $10

Guiding Light - Feed My Soul
Inspiring Homilies Covering Cycle C of the Litugical Year
$ 10.00

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. $10
