July 20th Holy Spirit Novena
Scripture selection is Day 3 Period I.

The Novena Rosary Mysteries  
for July 20th are Sorrowful.



Messenger:           The high-chair - to a
                        child can help them eat better —
                        It is okay.

                            To an adult they look
                        silly in the high chair,
                        but some want it...

                            A baby cries "I want it" — "I
                        want it, now" and they may not get
                        it, but they can cry and cry — a person
                        not doing God's will — facing temptations
                        may cry and cry and give in saying "I
                        want it now - now God - I want my
                        will now."

                            People that surrender and whine
                        and cry and manipulate others by complaining
                        holding onto their will, have really not
                        learned the lesson of doing God's will
                        in love and does God want a crying
                        baby that does His will, but screams
                        for their lives doing it — who wants
                        an adult screaming — babies can get
                        away with it and it is hard to take,
                        but adults must focus on how they are
                        pleasing in God's sight and must not
                        whine, cry and complain for the
                        sake of manipulating others.

                            It is hard to listen to a crying baby —
                        much harder a crying adult.

                            I love the homily of Fr. Mike given
                        during the retreat on being thankful. Homily

                        Inside each of us is many things.
                        Do we say to God —

                        "God I won't love myself."

                        I will think my joy and recognition,
                             must come in disobeying You —
                             and from others —

                        And God stands before us — the gift of
                            God's love for us —
                            the gift of His relationship given
                            to us.
                            God first loved us —
                            He sent His only Son.

                        It is our response to God's love —

                        If the basic premise is off
                            MY WILL as opposed to God's
                            we will have discomfort—
                            The basic premise — what is it? 
                            God the Father has a plan for us —
                            God wants us to serve Him in our
                            vocation —

                        God calls us — 

                        God wants this response to His love
                            given to us.

                        A young child learns about will —

                        Doing what they are told to do by mama
                            and dada may not be what they
                            want to do.

                        They may want "sugar pops" —
                            mom and dad may want whole
                            wheat bread.

                        Mom and dad may say don't stand on
                            chairs on the balcony
                            and they may say
                            "I want to" "I want to"
                            "I want to."

                        God the Father looks on — we are blessed
                            abundantly —

                        We scream —

                        "I want my way God"

                        Then we may decide to do what God wants,
                            anyway, but scream, complain, hurt others,
                            hurt ourselves —

                        A small child screaming in the hands
                            of a parent taking them with
                            them — can be so boisterous
                            it hurts people's ears and emotions —
                            even far away because they are
                            so loud —

                        Daddy says - this is the way — the child
                            may hold back screaming loudly —
                            then give-in going screaming.

                        What about people who follow vocations,
                            but need a "candy" to stay in them.

                        Oh daddy - we will follow, but we eat
                            candy and drink pop and do what we
                            want behind dad's back and
                            don't tell him.

                        Well eating the — "candies of this world" — that can be sinful
                            is dangerous — when one is called
                            by God for a vocation — one should
                            follow in joy.

                        Fr. Carter always said a man having
                            a vocation to the priesthood has
                            to follow it despite the desire
                            of parents wanting him to marry.

                        What about our vocation?
                            Whatever it is, if it is God's plan
                            we should love it, love God
                            and build His Kingdom as God

                        Doing our own will against something
                            that God wants is silly —
                            screaming and doing our vocation
                            in complaints and argument
                            is not right.

                        There are so few sisters, brothers and       
                            priests today. We should show
                        the world the great gift of serving
                        the Church as the spouse of Jesus
                        and loving the church.

                        The world may be the way it is — we
                            always look to God and follow
                            Christ — live by His example.

                        He carried His cross —
                            He mounted it and
                            He died on it.

                        He showed us He obeyed

                            His Father.

                        He always did the Father's will.

                        Mary always did the Father's will.

                        Everything we do must be done in greater
                            purity and love — serving God
                            according to His will.

                        St. Ignatius talks about inordinate
                            attachments and the three classes
                            of men. 

                            What about inordinate attachments?

                            What is our god — God —

                        Is money our god?

                        Is fame our god?

                        Is pride, pleasure our god?

                        Is admiration our god?

                        Why do I write about this at all —
                            As God directs me I write.

                        What is our god?

First Commandment

I, the Lord, am your God. You shall not have other gods besides me.

Messenger:     Following God's will
                            living in truth is paramount in
                            the spiritual life —

                            We all stand under the cross and we
                        beg God to help us to be docile —
                            Mary stood beneath the cross —
                            In Mary's Message she cried out too


 John 19: 25-27

Near the cross of Jesus stood his mother and his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary of Magdala. Seeing his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing near her, Jesus said to his mother, ‘Woman, this is your son.’ Then to the disciple he said, ‘This is your mother.’ And from that hour the disciple took her into his home.

Messenger:         It is a hard day when we plan a
                        picnic or golf and the wind comes
                        up and the rains come and we see that
                        it is impossible to play or have a picnic —

                        A door closes —

                       A checked table cloth and all —

                        Golf clubs sitting at rest —

                        It would be "not-so-smart" — to cry
                            and curse the weather.
                            Can you control the weather?


Mary speaks:  Oh poor banished children of Eve —
                            so willful in your ways!!

                        Follow my Son Jesus —

                        Stand beneath the cross with me
                            and look up and see Him covered
                            with Blood

                        See His love for you —

                        Oh poor banished children of Eve

                        Jesus is truth —

                        Jesus is the way —

                        Jesus is the life — 

                        You whimper like babies and many so
                            willful - hurting others - living
                            lives of sin — 

                        "I want my way" you cry and complain
                        at others when you are not getting it —
                        Sinning no matter how small opens
                        a door to satan!!


                        God is your God —

                        You shall not have other gods before you
                            money, sex, admiration, fear of loneliness


                            A woman walked a dark street and
                        a strong man came after her and
                        she was paralyzed with fear and couldn't
                        move —

                            She had this dream over and over again
                        and woke up screaming as he was ready
                        to hurt her, maybe cause her death —

                            You walk down dark allies that
                        lead to habitual sins and they are roads
                        that can lead to death for your soul.
                        Do you want to live you life -
                            dead in sin —
                            that sounds a paradox, but many do it
                            engaging in sex out of
                            marriage is okay — the world says so —
                            "I watch it in the movies and look at
                            pictures that lead me to sin." They may say —
                               But then say "I want it"

                                "I want it"

                        Satan tempts you into ways you may
                            want to give in and say
                            "I want it — anyway, despite the sin."


Genesis Chapter 3

   Now, the snake was the most subtle of all the wild animals that Yahweh God had made. It asked the woman, ‘Did God really say you were not to eat from any of the trees in the garden?’ The woman answered the snake, ‘We may eat the fruit of the trees in the garden. But of the fruit of the tree in the middle of the garden God said, "You must not eat it, nor touch it, under pain of death." ’ Then the snake said to the woman, ‘No! You will not die! God knows in fact that the day you eat it your eyes will be opened and you will be like gods, knowing good from evil.’ The woman saw that the tree was good to eat and pleasing to the eye, and that it was enticing for the wisdom that it could give. So she took some of its fruit and ate it. She also gave some to her husband who was with her, and he ate it. Then the eyes of both of them were opened and they realised that they were naked. So they sewed fig–leaves together to make themselves loin–cloths.

   The man and his wife heard the sound of Yahweh God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid from Yahweh God among the trees of the garden. But Yahweh God called to the man. ‘Where are you?’ he asked. ‘I heard the sound of you in the garden,’ he replied. ‘I was afraid because I was naked, so I hid.’ ‘Who told you that you were naked?’ he asked. ‘Have you been eating from the tree I forbade you to eat?’ The man replied, ‘It was the woman you put with me; she gave me some fruit from the tree, and I ate it.’ Then Yahweh God said to the woman, ‘Why did you do that?’ The woman replied, ‘The snake tempted me and I ate.’

   Then Yahweh God said to the snake, ‘Because you have done this,

    Accursed be you of
    all animals wild and tame!
    On your belly you will go
    and on dust you will feed
    as long as you live.
    I shall put enmity
    between you and the woman,
    and between your offspring and hers;
    it will bruise your head
    and you will strike its heel.’

     To the woman he said:

     I shall give you intense pain
        in childbearing,
     you will give birth to your children
        in pain.
     Your yearning will be for your husband,
      and he will dominate you.

   To the man he said, ‘Because you listened to the voice of your wife and ate from the tree of which I had forbidden you to eat,

     Accursed be the soil because of you!
     Painfully will you get your food from it
     as long as you live.
   It will yield you brambles and thistles,
     as you eat the produce of the land.
   By the sweat of your face
     will you earn your food,
     until you return to the ground,
     as you were taken from it.
     For dust you are
     and to dust you shall return.’

   The man named his wife ‘Eve’ because she was the mother of all those who live. Yahweh God made tunics of skins for the man and his wife and clothed them. Then Yahweh God said, ‘Now that the man has become like one of us in knowing good from evil, he must not be allowed to reach out his hand and pick from the tree of life too, and eat and live for ever!’ So Yahweh God expelled him from the garden of Eden, to till the soil from which he had been taken. He banished the man, and in front of the garden of Eden he posted the great winged creatures and the fiery flashing sword, to guard the way to the tree of life.

Mary speaks:  But satan tries to get you to rationalize —
                            in this case it's okay —
                            you start to change the basic rules —
                            the ten commandments because

                        You give into temptation and say
                            "I want it despite God's will."

                        When you look at a history of your
                            life you may see where you always
                            held on to a candy rather than
                            really giving yourself to God and
                            doing God's will — 

                            That made everything tainted —

                        You are like a pearl in the oyster
                            shell — 

                        You feel the disharmony, you keep
                            the pearl at any price — it is
                            abrasive and ugly in there

                        Not doing God's will keeps you from the
                            oneness and harmony God wants
                            with you, because you never
                            really make God #1 in your
                            life —

                            You always had your "candy" —
                            Or you were trying to get a "candy"
                            Or you were getting over the "candy"

                            In process of getting it back or
                            getting another to fill the
                            real craving in your soul only
                            Jesus could fill —


                        Life in the spirit is following God's lead —
                            living in peace and love —

                        Making doing God's will paramount
                            in your life —

                        Imagine what the world would be like
                            if everybody put God as #1
                            in their life —

                        Sin can lead to greater and greater lies.
                            It is like a volcano to those who
                            lie about sin and keep jumping
                            in the volcano more and more

                        Satan has made the pot (the volcano)
                            to take the soul to the pit of everlasting doom

Messenger:      In an accident — I had no time to
                            pray —

                        I always thought if you were in
                            an accident you could make up
                            any thing you had to, to God.

                        I had a rosary on my lap
                            it was torn apart bead by bead
                            beads were in my shoes — all 
                            over the car and my toes were
                            bleeding, but not cut —
                            I never understood how it happened —

                        A man made a left in front of me at the
                            top of the hill — it was like the movies — 
                            there was not time for prayer

                        Living a life disobeying the commandments
                            is like being on a floor that can 
                            give out at any time.

                        Lying to ourselves is giving into satan —
                            lies go deeper and deeper into darkness —

                        Love spreads and gives light to the world —
                            loving according to God's will —
                            Disobeying God hurts more than
                            ourselves — we are connected —
                            sin hurts others

                        We must see that sin hurts the world —

                        Things done against God's will
                            and selfishness hurts others —
                            can really hurt other's lives —
                            i.e. children caught in selfish 
                            affairs of parents can be hurt for
                            life —

                        But "I love them, I want to have 
                            fun." They may rationalize it
                            is okay.

                        We play on the surface of the earth —
                            our lives are short-lived — living by God's rules —
                            according to God's will in love — 
                            lead to peace, happiness and joy and
                            the gift of everlasting life.
It helps build the kingdom.



The Our Father

    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.

Mysteries of Light 


Baptism of the Lord

1. Jesus is the New Adam.

2. God can give us very special
        grace from meditating on these
        Mysteries of Light.

3. There are three Persons in one God.

4. Study the picture at the beginning
        of these meditations.

5. We see Jesus, we see a dove
        above Jesus, which is telling
        us to think about the Holy Spirit.
        We know in this mystery, the
        voice of the Father was heard

This is My Beloved Son, in 
    whom I am well pleased.

6. From meditating on these mysteries
        of light, I feel I am getting
        special grace to know each
        Person of the Trinity more deeply.

7. In every moment I live, I have
        this deep relationship with the
        Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

8. Since the Holy Father gave us
        the direction to meditate on
        these mysteries my deep love
        for each Person of the
        Trinity has increased.

9. I know each Person Father,
        Son and Holy Spirit so
        deeply and love Them so
        very much.

10. God is with us. He has given
        us the Holy Father to guide
        us. God works through 
        those He puts over us.
      God wants us to have structure
        and to obey those over us who
        are living the way God wants
        them to live.





Marriage at Cana

1. God has given us the sacrament of marriage.

2. Jesus performed His first miracle
        at the marriage at Cana.

3. God calls people to different
        vocations in life.

4. Religious are called to a very
        special relationship with Christ
        through the vow of celibacy.

5. Through their sacrifice, Religious
        can help make reparation to God
        for the sins of the flesh in the world.

6. At the marriage at Cana, Jesus showed
        his support for community life.

7. At the marriage at Cana, Jesus

        Jesus would handle the situation
        at her request.

        intercession of Mary our Mother.



Kingdom of God

1.  Luke 17: 20-25

Asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God was to come, he gave them this answer, ‘The coming of the kingdom of God does not admit of observation and there will be no one to say, "Look, it is here! Look, it is there!" For look, the kingdom of God is among you.’

He said to the disciples, ‘A time will come when you will long to see one of the days of the Son of man and will not see it. They will say to you, "Look, it is there!" or, "Look, it is here!" Make no move; do not set off in pursuit; for as the lightning flashing from one part of heaven lights up the other, so will be the Son of man when his Day comes. But first he is destined to suffer grievously and be rejected by this generation.

2. One of Fr. Carter's favorite scriptures was

Matthew 7:21

‘It is not anyone who says to me, "Lord, Lord," who will enter the kingdom of Heaven, but the person who does the will of my Father in heaven.

3. Fr. Carter spent His whole life
        learning about the spiritual life,
        writing about it as a holy priest
        of the Church and learning how
        to love his brothers more deeply. 
        This helped us in the Movement 
        to learn from all his direction
        how to love God and one
        another more perfectly.

4. We are building the Kingdom
        of God by how we love God,
        love one another and try to
        serve God by doing His will.

5. In many situations we can settle
        something selfishly or settle it
        in a way of love to help build
        God's kingdom.

6. Disobeying God's law is not being loving.

7. Parents need to discipline their 
        children in love and help build
        the Kingdom, by helping them
        grow into loving persons.

8.  We are sinners, we try to do what
        God wants, those in authority
        do what they do lovingly to
        build the Kingdom.

9.  Jesus obeyed His Father -- He
        shows us how to be obedient 
        and He loved those under Him
        so much He gave his life for them.

10. We must do what we know God 
        wants of us in a loving way.
        It isn't loving to not do God's will.





1. The bread and wine is changed
        into the Body and Blood of
        Jesus at Mass.

2. God can give us a grace to help
        change our hearts.

3. God wants us to cooperate with
        the special graces He gives us.

4. Jesus took Peter, James and John
        up the mountain.

5. Jesus was transfigured before them.

6. God gives us Himself in the Holy Eucharist.

7. We can not imagine how beautiful
        our own graced soul is when
        we are in the state of grace.

8. Jesus wants our souls to be full of light
        and radiant with His grace.

9. God gives us the gift of baptism.

10. God offers us a special sharing in His life.




The Last Supper

1. Luke 22:19-20

Then he took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to them, saying, ‘This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.’ He did the same with the cup after supper, and said, ‘This cup is the new covenant in my blood poured out for you.

2. God has given the priests the

July 31, 1994

"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."

Jesus speaks:  To those who pray My prayers I
                        promise the following special

                                 - A deeper understanding of the 
                                     Divine Mysteries through fervent
                                     recitation of the litanies.

                                 - I promise a deeper love in your heart
                                     for your God and a deeper love
                                     for your fellowmen.

                                 - Those who pray the prayers fervently
                                    will experience a deep union 
                                    in My Heart and My Mother's heart,
                                    they will be given special insights
                                    into My unfathomable love for men
                                    and experience a thirsting within
                                    themselves to want to help souls
                                    through intercessory prayer and sacrifices.

                                 - They will have a deeper love of the Mass
                                    through this deeper consecration.
                                    [consecration to Their Hearts]

                                 - They will know Me more intimately.

                                 - They will want to live their lives to 
                                    help save souls.

                                 - They will have a deeper love for the priests shepherds.
                                 - They will have a deeper love and dedication
                                    to the Church. (I founded)

                                 - They will want peace on the earth.
                                 - They will want peace in their own hearts.

                                 - You will experience a fearlessness the more
                                    you pray the Holy Spirit Novena prayers
                                    given to you.

                                 - As you meditate on the scriptures you will
                                    understand more fully the plan of
                                    the Father to lead the souls into the
                                    great Reign of My Sacred Heart.

                                 - You and all who pray the Holy Spirit Novena
                                    and the Shepherds of Christ Prayers will be
                                    united in a deep oneness with each other
                                    and the souls of the earth.

                                 - The more you pray these prayers (both sets)
                                    you will live in the truth as you
                                    dwell in Our Hearts.

                                  - You will be given gifts of the Holy Spirit.

                                  - You and your family will be protected by
                                    My Precious Blood and your families
                                    will receive special protection
                                    against satan from fervent recitation
                                    of the prayers. (the Holy Spirit Novena
                                    and the Shepherds of Christ Prayers)

                                 - I promise to take you and the members of
                                    your family in a special way
                                    into My Sacred Heart. I will lavish
                                    you in the fires of My love.

                                 - The priests and the people of the Church and the world
                                    will receive special graces from the fervent
                                    recitation of these prayers. (both sets)

                                 - I will unite My people in a deeper love
                                    from the graces granted from
                                    fervent recitation of these prayers.

                                 - I give these prayers from My image site
                                    in Florida.
                                   I appear there daily as the Sacred Heart.
                                   Some see Me, some do not, but there
                                    is a special presence there.
                                   My Mother appears there for her children.

                                 - In the five years of her apparitions many
                                    souls who have come have been
                                    given special graces of conversion.
                                    Many have been given grace to lead
                                    them into a deeper love union with
                                    God and the Blessed Virgin.

                                 - The image site in Florida has touched
                                    the world.

                                 - I outpour great grace to those who come
                                    to the site.

                                 - There are tremendous graces of healing
                                    granted to all who come.

                                 - People who come rarely leave unchanged.
                                 - The grace granted works in their lives and in
                                    their hearts, long after they have gone.

                                 - A reminder of their visit only need be given
                                    and they experience a memory of
                                    that moment.

                                I ask you to circulate the prayers I have
                                    given, the Shepherds of Christ Prayers 
                                    and the Holy Spirit Novena prayers.
