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.

Happy Valentine's Day!
R. The Church battles the errors in the world.
At the time of Noah only those on the Ark were saved.
For 26 years we have been praying in Prayer Chapters as Jesus told Fr. Carter all over the world.
The Church is the Ark.
In Don Bosco's vision the pope directs it with the hierarchy and priests.
Also the Eucharist and Blessed Mother are on pillars in front.
For 16 years we have prayed before the Exposed Eucharist in China 24/7, every day.
Jesus is truly present there while we pray for the priest, the Church and the world.
God calls us to our vocation in the 7 levels of commitment in Shepherds of Christ.
So we have the pillar with Jesus in China.
The pillar of Mary in Florida.
Mary’s image head was destroyed March 1st, 16 years ago.
The Church for 2000 years has been persecuted and suffered tremendously.
The ship (Church) in terrestrial waters with schisms, persecutions, heresies etc. and the saints shed their blood.
We have circulated 17,000,000
of the Priestly Newsletter in 26 years and 550,000 of Fr. Joe's Books to priests and hierarchy.
This is God’s Movement.
These are centers given by God to the world.
He called 5ths and 13ths.
We need your commitment with your prayers and support.
We have sent about 20,000 of Fr. Joe's latest book to active priests in the United States.
These homilies over 13 years of 13 books of Fr. Joe to all active priests and hierarchy in the United States have helped shape homilies in the United States centered in the Word, the Eucharist, love.
The Shepherds of Christ has lead people to the Eucharist, baptism, holiness.
This is Jesus' Movement. Please take it as a gift from God to us and live the life He calls us to. Being greater in our holiness and praying and supporting this.
Our country needs these prayers.
Rita and Jesus
I have come so that they may have life and have it to the full.
R. God calls us to be holy, to love
and have concern for others, to
be united and communicate
honestly to others
and being loyal in our
friendship and love.
We must be concerned,
for our actions and their
consequences on others and
We work together, loving
and forgiving one another.
Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.
R. We are to follow Jesus.
We are to pray and perform
We have a duty to love God and others.
Matthew 22: 36-40
‘Master, which is the greatest commandment of the Law?’ Jesus said to him, ‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and the first commandment. The second resembles it: You must love your neighbour as yourself. On these two commandments hang the whole Law, and the Prophets too.’

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)
Ephesians 1: 18-19
May he enlighten the eyes of your mind so that you can see what hope his call holds for you, how rich is the glory of the heritage he offers among his holy people, and how extraordinarily great is the power that he has exercised for us believers; this accords with the strength of his power
Sing: Are Not Our Hearts Burning
Sing: Change Our Hearts
created us in His image
and likeness –
We are imperfect –
We need to change
and Be taught
The Holy Spirit helps us
to be more like Jesus.
Jesus rose from the dead –
50 days later the Holy Spirit
was sent from heaven on
The Church was born.
Jesus promised to send the Holy Spirit.
The gifts of the Holy Spirit are
Wisdom, Understanding, Counsel,
Fortitude, Knowledge, Piety
and Fear of the Lord
The fruits of the Holy Spirit are love,
joy, peace, kindness,
Sing: Veni Sanctus Spiritus
Come, Holy Spirit, come!
And from your celestial home
Shed a ray of light divine!
Come, Father of the poor!
Come, source of all our store!
Come, within our bosoms shine!
You, of comforters the best;
You, the soul's most welcome guest;
Sweet refreshment here below;
In our Labor, rest most sweet;
Grateful coolness in the heat;
Solace in the midst of woe.
O most blessed Light divine,
Shine within these hearts of yours,
And our inmost being fill!
Where you are not, man has naught,
Nothing good in deed or thought,
Nothing free from taint of ill!
Heal our wounds, our strength renew;
On our dryness pour your dew;
Wash the stains of guilt away;
Bend the stubborn heart and will;
Melt the frozen, warm the chill;
Guide the steps that go astray.
On the faithful, who adore
And confess you, evermore
In your sev'nfold gift descend;
Give them virtue's sure reward;
Give them your salvation, Lord;
Give them joys that never end. Amen.
Sing: Come Holy Ghost
Holy Spirit came at Pentecost in
fire above their heads –
tongues of fire –
When we develop the gifts of the
Holy Spirit we see the fruits
of the Holy Spirit as signs of the
Holy Spirit in our lives.
From the Prayer Manual
Holy Spirit Prayer
Come, Holy Spirit, almighty Sanctifier, God of love, who filled the Virgin Mary with grace, who wonderfully changed the hearts of the apostles, who endowed all Your martyrs with miraculous courage, come and sanctify us. Enlighten our minds, strengthen our wills, purify our consciences, rectify our judgment, set our hearts on fire, and preserve us from the misfortunes of resisting Your inspirations. Amen.
May 3, 1995 - 5:30 a.m.
Jesus: ...Love is a powerful force that insights a soul to action. You are missing the power that propels you into action. There is energy created in a soul that is filled with love. The Spirit fills the soul, it is energized and emits a powerful force. The devil drags a body down and the body emits a negative force. You must stay forever rooted in the Spirit. The Spirit is the Fire of God’s love.
Love is energy, love is vibrancy, love is active, love propels a being into a state of action. Do you love Me that it creates an energy in your soul? Oh you tap so lightly at the door of My Heart, you scratch and stay outside. You do not come to the source of the power, you do not enter in, you stand on the sea shore throwing in little rocks, you may occasionally immerse a toe. My children, My children, jump into the water. I am the source of life and love. Come into the burning abyss of My love, penetrate My Heart, be one with Me.
Then you will sing from your souls Come Holy Spirit, fill our hearts enkindle in them the fire of Your love.
Fire, Burning Fire, Vibrancy, Life, this is My love for you. It is an energy that propels you to action. I am Love, it is a mighty force. It is being plugged into a burning bulb. I am the light to this world. You must come and unite with Me. I will operate from you and You will Love because you will be in a state of Love.
You are missing the immense power behind My love.
Touched by My grace, you experienced the Almighty God, your state was that of ecstasy, your being transformed to burning love.
To unite to Me, you become love, you are love, you see the others with love, your heart is filled with love from God and your actions are giving actions. To be in this state of giving you must be filled by My love.
How can you give to others when you are empty? Many want to love their brothers, but they do not come to the source.
You cannot give what you do not have. Give away your attachments and come and be filled with My love. My burning love, you will be propelled into action. Love is Action from the Heart, Fire, Power, Vibrancy, Life, Divine Love is a power, I impart to you a sharing in My life in baptism. You are set afire and given a new life. Come to the Fountain of life and love, come to My Heart. Come to the pierced Heart of Jesus Christ, what flowed from this Heart on Calvary was water and blood, water for Baptism and blood for the Eucharist.
R.Jesus’ Heart is an endless source of love and mercy. Come to the pierced Heart of Jesus the source of Divine life and Divine love, the source of His great mercy for His precious souls He loves.
R.Blood dripping down inside of His mouth.
Jesus:I tasted the blood in My mouth as it dripped down, My blood given for love of My precious souls. Red is the color of My blood, red is the color of My Heart. I shed this blood for My deep love of you. From My pierced Heart there flowed blood and water. My Heart a symbol of My great love for you. My Heart is an endless fountain of love, man in his ignorance does not comprehend the great gifts I give to him. I am Jesus, I am the Son of God, I give to you My life, My Divine life, I shed My blood for you.
My mouth was dry and coated, all the fluid had gone from My body, the blood dried up and matted in My hair, ran in My mouth, in the intense dryness of My mouth I tasted My own blood.
I give you My blood to drink, do you taste My love I outpour to you? My mouth was dry, but the taste of My own blood was sweetness to My Heart for it was this blood that would pay the price for My beloved souls.
Sing:To Jesus’ Heart All Burning
Jesus:I am the way, the truth, and the life, I will touch the hardened hearts with the Fire of My love, you must obey Me, you are My beloved one to spread this love of My Heart across this world. Satan will try to divide you and Fr. Carter, you will know the love of this Heart burning with love for My precious souls. Each soul I died for, each soul I love this much, each soul I thirst after, I thirst, I thirst for the love of My precious souls. This world is in darkness, as My mouth was dry on the way to Calvary, the taste of My own blood was sweetness to My Heart. I came to this earth to die that you would have a new life. I shed My blood for love of you. My Body, My Blood received at Mass are the gifts I give to you. I give you this My sweet love. I am Love, My love is power and vibrancy in your heart, My love I give to you.
My sweet, adorable, love, I give to you, My precious child, how I love you. I watch your every move, I know far better than yourself the desires of your heart. I want you to desire Me for I desire your love so deeply given to Me.
I thirst for the love of My precious souls. I thirst, I thirst, I thirst, I am an endless fountain of love and life and mercy. This I give to My beloved souls.
R.I feel His love, it is as a hot wire, a wire full of power. He gives me an experience and it releases me and I am saturated and bathed in His love. I let go of all the walls and protections and His love permeates me and saturates me.
It is as if I let down the gates and His love flows in and it knocks me over, I cry from its magnitude.
Sirach 15: 15-20
If you choose, you will keep the commandments
and so be faithful to his will.
He has set fire and water before you;
put out your hand to whichever you prefer.
A human being has life and death before him:
whichever he prefers will be given him.
For vast is the wisdom of the Lord;
he is almighty and all-seeing.
His eyes are on those who fear him,
he notes every human action.
He never commanded anyone to be godless,
he has given no one permission to sin.
Psalm 119: 1-2, 4-5, 17-18, 33-34
How blessed are those whose way is blameless,
who walk in the Law of Yahweh
Blessed are those who observe his instructions,
who seek him with all their hearts,
You lay down your precepts
to be carefully kept.
May my ways be steady
in doing your will.
1 Corinthians 2: 6-10
But still, to those who have reached maturity, we do talk of a wisdom, not, it is true, a philosophy of this age or of the rulers of this age, who will not last long now. It is of the mysterious wisdom of God that we talk, the wisdom that was hidden, which God predestined to be for our glory before the ages began. None of the rulers of the age recognised it; for if they had recognised it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory; but it is as scripture says: What no eye has seen and no ear has heard, what the mind of man cannot visualise; all that God has prepared for those who love him; to us, though, God has given revelation through the Spirit, for the Spirit explores the depths of everything, even the depths of God.
Matthew 5: 17-37
‘Do not imagine that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets. I have come not to abolish but to complete them. In truth I tell you, till heaven and earth disappear, not one dot, not one little stroke, is to disappear from the Law until all its purpose is achieved. Therefore, anyone who infringes even one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be considered the least in the kingdom of Heaven; but the person who keeps them and teaches them will be considered great in the kingdom of Heaven.
‘For I tell you, if your uprightness does not surpass that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never get into the kingdom of Heaven.
‘You have heard how it was said to our ancestors, You shall not kill; and if anyone does kill he must answer for it before the court. But I say this to you, anyone who is angry with a brother will answer for it before the court; anyone who calls a brother "Fool" will answer for it before the Sanhedrin; and anyone who calls him "Traitor" will answer for it in hell fire. 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. Come to terms with your opponent in good time while you are still on the way to the court with him, or he may hand you over to the judge and the judge to the officer, and you will be thrown into prison. In truth I tell you, you will not get out till you have paid the last penny.
‘You have heard how it was said, You shall not commit adultery. But I say this to you, if a man looks at a woman lustfully, he has already committed adultery with her in his heart. If your right eye should be your downfall, tear it out and throw it away; for it will do you less harm to lose one part of yourself than to have your whole body thrown into hell. And if your right hand should be your downfall, cut it off and throw it away; for it will do you less harm to lose one part of yourself than to have your whole body go to hell.
‘It has also been said, Anyone who divorces his wife must give her a writ of dismissal. But I say this to you, everyone who divorces his wife, except for the case of an illicit marriage, makes her an adulteress; and anyone who marries a divorced woman commits adultery.
'Again, you have heard how it was said to our ancestors, You must not break your oath, but must fulfil your oaths to the Lord. But I say this to you, do not swear at all, either by heaven, since that is God's throne; or by earth, since that is his footstool; or by Jerusalem, since that is the city of the great King. Do not swear by your own head either, since you cannot turn a single hair white or black. All you need say is "Yes" if you mean yes, "No" if you mean no; anything more than this comes from the Evil One.
6th Sunday in Ordinary Time
February 13, 2011
HOMILY – A young man was pouring over the selection of Valentine’s Day cards at a local gift shop. The clerk asked if she could help. “I’m looking for your most beautiful Valentine card,” he explained. “Something that expresses my deepest feelings.” The clerk went to a section of cards and pulled out one that was beautifully embossed, trimmed with lace, and written in an elegant script. “This is a lovely card,” she said and read the inside. “To my one true love, the light of my life, the joy of my heart, the very essence of beauty and grace. I love you more than I can say.” The young man was thrilled. “That’s perfect!” He said. “That’s exactly what I’m looking for. I’ll take five.” (from www.ConnectionsMediaWorks.com: Feb. 2011, pg. 2) make a fool of ourselves. Sometimes things are humorous and sometimes they can get us into big trouble. As we know, the scribes and Pharisees of Jesus’ day were often full of contradictions and self-deceit, convinced they were the truly holy ones and everyone else were great sinners. Jesus tells us if we want to enter the kingdom of God, we have to be better than they were. This week and next he gives us various illustrations of what he means by being better. Basically, he is trying to show us holiness goes beyond external behavior. Holiness must be deep inside of us – that which must be deep inside of us, that which makes us truly holy is love: love for God and love for each other.
Please don’t misunderstand me. Certainly the way we behave is important. God’s commandments tell us that. Thou shalt not kill, thou shalt not commit adultery, thou shalt not bear false witness, honor thy father and thy mother, keep holy the Lord’s day, etc. We might feel like killing someone, but we don’t do it. Keeping God’s instructions about what we must do or not do will guide us to a better life. Jesus wants us also to have such love in our hearts that we not only do not kill others, but that we love them enough that we don’t want to kill them; that we not only don’t take our neighbor’s wife, but that we love our neighbor and our own spouse, if we’re married, to the extent that we don’t even desire intimate relations with someone we’re not married to. With technology and pornography it’s really easy to fall into that trap today. He tells us also that not only should we not swear falsely, our love and respect for others should move us to always be truthful to anyone to whom we speak.
We might be thinking “that’s a big order.” Truly it is. Jesus asks a lot from his followers. Sirach tells us in the first reading, “if you choose, you can keep the commandments.” We must add “only with God’s help,” for God is love and only with his help, a help that is available to us through prayer and the sacraments, can we be like him. As Jesus said, “without me you can do nothing.” We must be careful not to condemn ourselves when feelings come to us, feelings of anger, laziness, envy, lust, greed, pride or whatever. We are all human and we all experience those feelings. We would have to cut out our brain to eliminate feelings such as these. The important thing is, what do we do with these feelings, do we dwell on them, hold on to them, allow them to take over our thinking, or do we consider whether they fit with what Jesus would want of us and choose to go in the direction of what we know he would want.
This is a slightly different topic, but it’s worth noting here the way Jesus taught. Jesus said “you have heard it was said ...” When the ordinary Jew learned God’s law, it was read to them or preached to them (since owning a book then was a luxury). Then Jesus said “but I say to you ...” Jewish rabbi’s never preached that way. Jesus is speaking here with great authority, an authority seemingly equal to God who originally gave us the Ten Commandments. People have often asked me whether he knew he was God. Right from the beginning of his ministry, it is obvious he didn’t have any hesitancy about acting as if he were.
Today at our Mass of the Four Chaplains, we celebrate God’s love shown to us in Jesus who taught us to love and who showed us perfect love through his own sacrifice to save us. We also today honor four men of God whose hearts and lives were filled with God’s love. Jesus said, “No one has greater love than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.” (Jn. 15:13) Their sacrifice moves us beyond words and they remind us of the many men and women who also made great sacrifices for our safety and freedom, whose acts of love and service may never be known.

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
Guiding Light — The Word Alive in Our Hearts. — Cycle A (partial) Homilies by the Reverend Joe Robinson given at St. Boniface Church in Cincinnati, Ohio. It is a tremendous honor Fr. Joe has allowed us to share these great gifts with you – for greater holiness and knowing more and more about God. $10

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
