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.

    I give my heart to Jesus and Mary with you in love. Without the priest, we could not have the Eucharist.

    I ask myself, why isn’t everyone praying for our beloved priests, like Fr. Carter said when he firmly believed Jesus was telling him to spread the prayers found in the back of this book for the priests, the Church and the world.

    We are so grateful to God for our priests!!!

    Fr. Carter, S.J. in two homilies quotes Saint Pope John Paul II when he gave a homily about needing the
priest for Mass.

    In these homilies, the year Fr. Carter died we see his love for the Eucharist and the Sacred Heart.

    We have had the Eucharist exposed 24/7, 19 years in the Church in China, Indiana, where the Archbishop
gave us the permission to do this and helped Fr. Carter to acquire this Church 25 years ago. (The China Church in Indiana, is on the back of the book.)

    Fr. Carter, with a doctorate in theology, our founder, had a heart very much in love with Jesus. He loved the
Church so much and worked to spread these prayer chapters and these writings across the world, with devotion to the two Hearts: the Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart.

    Please help us spread these prayers (in 8 languages with the Church’s Imprimatur) praying for the priests,
the Church and the world.

    This is an honor to do this work at Shepherds of Christ and a labor of love.

    (Fr. Carter found out he had cancer September 22, 2000 and died less than 3 months later, these homilies are from, just, months before Fr. Carter’s death).
 

R. In Fr. Joe’s book there are homilies
for the Sundays of the Church year.

We have sent about a million of Fr. Joe’s
books in 15 years
to priests and hierarchy
centered in the Word and Eucharist to
feed our hungry souls.
 

     


 

R. Jesus loves us so much and gives us
so much to feed our hungry soul.

Please pray for our circulating
these books to the priests.


WE NEED TO PRAY FOR THE
PRIEST, CHURCH AND THE WORLD

Jesus told Fr. Carter.

At the Transfiguration the Father said,
“This is My beloved Son in whom I
am well pleased, listen to Him.”

Do we listen to Jesus?

Are we open for changing our ways
that are what the Father is trying to tell
us through these writings?

The Church is Trinitarian.

The love of God is intimacy with, and
relationship with Father, Son and
Holy Spirit.

Reality is as it is in God!!

Reach, open your minds, your hearts
to know God.

The Baltimore Catechism:
“We were created to know, love and
serve God and there by attain our
eternal salvation.”

Reach, reach … be open to God as
He really is, to know Him, to grow,
to allow the body of Christ to grow
as it should.

The Incarnation goes on in us.

Spiritual babies, at the skirt of Mary,
our spiritual Mother!!

New Life!!!!

It takes grace, depth of intimacy
with God!!

Love for the Church to pray for her
and the priests.

Love for the priests -

Devotion to the Sacred Heart and
Immaculate Heart -

Spiritual babies!!!

New Life

In Baptism our knowing and loving
capacity is elevated -

It's a capacity.

We seek growth, understanding,
knowledge, the Holy Spirit infuses
this into our intellect, we pray for
these gifts of the Holy Spirit.

The Incarnation goes on in us.

So good,
Ineffable.
 

Mark 7:14-23

He called the people to him again and said, 'Listen to me, all of you, and understand. Nothing that goes into someone from outside can make that person unclean; it is the things that come out of someone that make that person unclean. Anyone who has ears for listening should listen!' When he had gone into the house, away from the crowd, his disciples questioned him about the parable. He said to them, 'Even you -- don't you understand? Can't you see that nothing that goes into someone from outside can make that person unclean, because it goes not into the heart but into the stomach and passes into the sewer? And he went on, 'It is what comes out of someone that makes that person unclean. For it is from within, from the heart, that evil intentions emerge: fornication, theft, murder, adultery, avarice, malice, deceit, indecency, envy, slander, pride, folly. All these evil things come from within and make a person unclean.'

 
R. Projection.

A person can project the darkness in
them in speech against innocent others.

Remember when being attacked
wrongfully, by another this scripture,
to what extent one gives into the
temptation of satan, they may project
their own darkness on innocent others.

God commands us to love.
Jesus is the way, the truth and the life.

Wrongfully accusing others because
of our own hatred inside is not truth.
First to thine own self be true.

God does not deceive, nor can He
be deceived.

 
R. This is a rosary about the love of
Jesus and Mary for each of us.
This rosary comes from the Hearts of
Jesus and Mary to our heart.
We must open our heart and let the
love of Jesus and Mary flow into our
heart, that we will hear the messages
They want to give us and receive the
love They give us in this rosary.
The rosary is the story of Their love,
we meditate on Their lives, the lives
of Jesus and Mary, love They give to
us!!!

Mysteries of Light

The Baptism of Jesus

1. Mark 1: 9-11

It was at this time that Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee and was baptised in the Jordan by John. And at once, as he was coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens torn apart and the Spirit, like a dove, descending on him. And a voice came from heaven, ‘You are my Son, the Beloved; my favour rests on you.’

2. For most of us, when we hear the word “baptism” the first and possibly only thing we think of is that it is the sacrament that takes away original sin. That’s because we were taught to see the waters of baptism as something that washed away sin and that made us spiritually clean. Consequently, the baptism of Jesus is hard for us to understand because we know Jesus had no sin. There are two ideas I would like to talk about that might help a little bit to better understand the baptism of Jesus.  (26 years ago from Fr. Joe's Homilies January 1998)

First of all, when John the Baptist was baptizing and when he baptized Jesus, this was not the same baptism as our sacrament of baptism. John the Baptist stated this clearly when he said, “I am baptizing you in water, but there is one to come who is mightier than I … He will baptize you in the Holy Spirit and in fire.” John’s baptism symbolized repentance, it symbolized a person’s turning from sin and beginning to live a renewed life in preparation for the coming of God’s kingdom.  (26 years ago from Fr. Joe's Homilies January 1998)

3. Jesus did not need to repent of sin, of course, but he received baptism as a sign of his total commitment to the work of the Father and to building God’s kngdom. At the same time though, his baptism showed us what Christian baptism, the sacrament of baptism, would be. When Jesus was baptized, the heavens were opened and the Holy Spirit descended on Jesus and God the Father proclaimed that Jesus was his beloved Son. (26 years ago from Fr. Joe's Homilies January 1998)

4. This leads to the second point that I want to emphasize: the sacrament of baptism does more than take away original sin and any other sin for that matter. In baptism the Holy Spirit comes upon us and in this Spirit we are united with Christ and we become, in fact, God’s beloved children. Thus baptism gives us a new life; it is truly a rebirth. (26 years ago from Fr. Joe's Homilies January 1998)

5. Seen in this way, the waters of baptism take on a different symbolism. Water becomes a symbol for life. Think for a moment of what our earth would be without water. It would be dry and totally lifeless. The water that is poured over a person in baptism then, should be seen as God’s Spirit and life that is being poured into that person. The removal of sin is simply a consequence, God’s life coming into us. For original sin is basically an emptiness, a vacuum, an absence of God’s life, and it is through God’s life coming into us in the sacrament of baptism that, that emptiness is filled up. (26 years ago from Fr. Joe's Homilies January 1998)

6. When we see baptism only in terms of taking away sin (as most of us do), then we tend to forget about this sacrament after it is finished. We tend to view it as an operation that removed some ugly birthmark on us and then we never think of it again. But if we see baptism as the beginning of a new life in Christ, then it is something for us to remember and celebrate (just as we celebrate our birthdays). That’s why at Easter we renew our baptismal vows, to remind ourselves of the new life given to us through baptism and through the resurrection of our Lord. If we view baptism in this way then we will see it not as something that’s completed but as the beginning of a whole way of life.  (26 years ago from Fr. Joe's Homilies January 1998)

7. Sometimes a young couple who are not active with their faith come to me with the desire to have their baby baptized. They can’t understand why I tell them they are not ready for the baptism of their child, that they need to start practicing their faith before they can ask for baptism. It’s because they see baptism as something they should do for their child and then it’s over and done with and they do not see this sacrament as just the beginning of a life of faith, a faith they have the obligation to share with their child. Parents in our society who just give birth to a child and then neglect or abandon their child are locked up. Giving birth carries with it responsibilities of care and nurturing and training. Baptism is the sacrament of giving birth in a spiritual way. It too carries with it responsibilities of care and nurturing and training in the ways of Christ.  (26 years ago from Fr. Joe's Homilies January 1998)

8. And so, as we hear in the gospel about the Spirit descending on Jesus at his baptism, and we hear about the voice from heaven proclaiming Jesus as God’s beloved Son, let us recall that this same thing happened to us at our baptism.  Let us as God’s sons and daughters give thanks to God for what he has given us in Jesus and let us commit ourselves to be faithful to him. (26 years ago from Fr. Joe's Homilies January 1998)

9. Romans 8:14-17

All who are guided by the Spirit of God are sons of God; for what you received was not the spirit of slavery to bring you back into fear; you received the Spirit of adoption, enabling us to cry out, 'Abba, Father!' The Spirit himself joins with our spirit to bear witness that we are children of God. And if we are children, then we are heirs, heirs of God and joint-heirs with Christ, provided that we share his suffering, so as to share his glory.

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 referred to His Mother as woman.
3. We think of Mary as the “new Eve”,
    our spiritual Mother.
4. The old Eve was “mother of all the living”.
5. We see Mary’s powerful intercession.
6. On Calvary, Jesus also referred to Mary
    as “woman”.
7. Woman, behold, your son. John 19:26
8. The “woman” at Cana and the “woman”
    at the foot of the cross is indeed the New
    Eve, Fr. Carter says.
9. Further Fr. Carter says,
    On Calvary, Mary, in deep anguish,
    sees her Son’s side pierced with a lance,
    from which the Church is born.
    Mary is Mother of the Church.

10. From Mother at Our Side

"Then, in order that the Church might be formed out of the side of Christ sleeping on the cross. . the divine plan permitted that one of the soldiers should pierce open His sacred side with a lance. While blood mixed with water flowed, the price of our salvation was poured forth, which gushing forth from the sacred fountain of the heart gave power to the sacraments of the Church…"38

38. Bonaventure, translated by Evert Cousins (New York: Paulist Press, 1978), pp. 154-55.
 

 

The Building 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. Our life and search for happiness is to
    see more and more - through the eyes
    of our heavenly Father, the vision of
    God.

3. In Baptism we receive the supernatural
    virtues of faith, hope and love.

4. Our knowing and loving capacity is
    elevated in Baptism.

5. We share in God’s knowing activity
    from Baptism.
    We share in God’s loving activity
    from Baptism.

6. Through the pierced Heart of Jesus,
    the Church was born.
    Water for Baptism
    Blood for the Eucharist.

7. We receive a sharing in His life in
    Baptism
    and He feeds this life with Himself in
    the Eucharist.

8. Jesus died so we could live.

    Christ died - the Church was born.

9. The Mass is the sacrifice of Calvary,
    sacramentally made present.

    Grace is outpoured
    from the Mass.

10. Christ died - the Church was born.

    The Mass is the sacrifice of Calvary,
    sacramentally made present.

    Grace is outpoured
    from the Mass.

 

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. Fr. Joe says (2000 Homily): "The Transfiguration had to have been an awesome experience. We hear about it every year on the second Sunday of Lent. In Lent it serves the purpose of preparing us for the glory of Easter. However, the feast of the Transfiguration is on August 6 and this year it falls on Sunday. It is an important enough feast that it replaces the normal Sunday liturgy."

3. Fr. Joe says…(2000 Homily) "As wonderful as the Transfiguration must have been for the apostles, what can it tell us today? I think one lesson here is that things are not always as they appear to be. Jesus, to all appearances, was only a man, a special man who had wonderful power and who used that power to help others, but still just a man. Most of the time he referred to himself as the “Son of man,” a title designating a human being, but still a mysterious title for those who were familiar with the book of Daniel. For a moment the apostles saw and heard something different on Mt. Tabor that indicated there was so more to Jesus than they could ever imagine."

4. Fr. Joe says (2000 Homily): "We will probably never see Jesus as they did until we leave this world, but there are moments when God's glory does touch us and we are never the same again."

5. Our faith is constantly calling us
    to see beyond appearances.
6. Sing: Eye Has Not Seen
7. We pray that the Lord will help us
    to know His presence with us today.
8. Pray and have faith. Thank You
    God for this mystery.

9. Sing: Glory, Glory, Glory Lord

10. Sing: My God and My All

 

The Institution of the Eucharist

1. Matthew 26: 26-29

Now as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had said the blessing he broke it and gave it to the disciples. ‘Take it and eat,’ he said, ‘this is my body.’ Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he handed it to them saying, ‘Drink from this, all of you, for this is my blood, the blood of the covenant, poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. From now on, I tell you, I shall never again drink wine until the day I drink the new wine with you in the kingdom of my Father.’

2. Prayer before the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass

    Let me be a holy sacrifice and unite with God in the sacrament of His greatest love.

    I want to be one in Him in this act of love, where He gives Himself to me and I give myself as a sacrifice to Him. Let me be a holy sacrifice as I become one with Him in this my act of greatest love to Him.

    Let me unite with Him more, that I may more deeply love Him. May I help make reparation to His adorable Heart and the heart of His Mother, Mary. With greatest love, I offer myself to You and pray that You will accept my sacrifice of greatest love. I give myself to You and unite in Your gift of Yourself to me. Come and possess my soul.

    Cleanse me, strengthen me, heal me. Dear Holy Spirit act in the heart of Mary to make me more and more like Jesus.

    Father, I offer this my sacrifice, myself united to Jesus in the Holy Spirit to You. Help me to love God more deeply in this act of my greatest love.

    Give me the grace to grow in my knowledge, love and service of You and for this to be my greatest participation in the Mass. Give me the greatest graces to love You so deeply in this Mass, You who are so worthy of my love.

                                               -Mass Book, December 27, 1995

 

3. A Prayer for Intimacy with the Lamb the Bridegroom of the Soul

     Oh Lamb of God, Who take away the sins of the world, come and act on my soul most intimately. I surrender myself, as I ask for the grace to let go, to just be as I exist in You and You act most intimately on my soul. You are the Initiator. I am the soul waiting Your favors as You act in me. I love You. I adore You. I worship You. Come and possess my soul with Your Divine Grace, as I experience You most intimately.

4. Prayer of St Ignatius

Soul of Christ, sanctify me
Body of Christ, save me
Blood of Christ, inebriate me
Water from the side of Christ wash me
Passion of Christ, strengthen me
O good Jesus, hear me
Within Thy wounds hide me
Permit me not to be separated from Thee
From the wicked foe defend me
at the hour of my death call me
and bid me come to Thee
That with Thy saints I may praise Thee
For ever and ever. Amen.

5. Song: Your Presence Pervades my Soul

6. Song: I Love You Jesus

7. Sing: I Am the Bread of Life

8. Fr. Carter says:

Today’s gospel from John’s Gospel speaks some beautiful words to us about Jesus’ gift of Himself to us in the Holy Eucharist. The Eucharist is such a great school of love. Jesus comes to us out of God’s miracle of love, through the miracle of transubstantiation, bread and wine is changed into the Body and Blood of Jesus. This is a wonderful miracle so that even though He ascended into heaven he is still…in what the Church refers to as His real presence, in the Eucharist. Jesus remains with us: Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity, today, in His real presence in the Eucharist.  January 12, 2000 Homily

9. Homily continues

Yes, the Eucharist is a great school of love. In the Eucharist, Jesus teaches us the lengths in which love can go. Jesus showed us His love, by His fruitful dying on the cross, by His glorious Resurrection, by remaining with us in the Eucharist. And so the Eucharist teaches us… love… always love, love of God, love your neighbor, love for each other as ourselves. The Eucharist teaches us…how the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus cries out for our love, and Jesus wants so much, so much to be loved.

10. Homily continues

But the Eucharist in its school of love tells us how he overwhelming loves us…Jesus gives himself to us in the Eucharist. He loved those who, loved and accepted Him and those who rejected Him, despite all Jesus did for them and all His love for them.

Inspiring Homilies Covering Cycle B of the Litugical Year (2011/2012)
$ 10.00

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. $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
