July 24th Holy Spirit Novena
Scripture selection is Day 7 Period I.

The Novena Rosary Mysteries  
for July 24th are Sorrowful

     


Please pray for all urgent intentions.

 

 

Jesus said there are as many

hearts as there are faces.

  

This was Fr. Carter's favorite Good Shepherd picture.

  

Messenger:        Bless the whole world — to have peace.

                         Let it begin with me.

                         Where there is hatred sow love.

                         Love those who persecute you.

Jesus speaks:    Why should you not spread My light.

                        Open your hearts to love.

                        Where there is hatred sow love.

                        Do not hold a grudge it makes your jaw
                            stiff — your heart sad —

                        You carry a ball and chain with you and
                            you can give in so much to chock
                            yourselves so you don't do what you
                            ought to —

Messenger:       He took my tight heart —
                            He showered His grace on me —
                            He gave me vision —
                            He gave me His love —
                            He showed me His blessings.

                        Satan wants a paralyzing grip —
                            He wants to stop the joy in
                            our soul —

                        He wants us to quit working
                            when something is hard and
                            begin isolating — blame
                            somebody else for how I feel.

                        Who can change the heart of one
                            gripped in pain.

                         God's grace —

                         Bending the stubborn heart and will —

                        Accomplishing the work even in trials.

                        Begging to know the joy of love —

                        Praying for our persecutors —

                        A fisherman went out with a net and
                            he caught a big catch — he was
                            positive, attentive — wanting
                            with his whole heart to meet
                            his mark —

                        An angry man went out to the peer —
                            he couldn't even fish —
                            he was so angry he couldn't
                            throw the net in.

Ezekiel 34: 11-16

    “For the Lord Yahweh says this: Look, I myself shall take care of my flock and look after it. As a shepherd looks after his flock when he is with his scattered sheep, so shall I look after my sheep. I shall rescue them from wherever they have been scattered on the day of clouds and darkness. I shall bring them back from the peoples where they are; I shall gather them back from the countries and bring them back to their own land. I shall pasture them on the mountains of Israel, in the ravines and in all the inhabited parts of the country. I shall feed them in good pasturage; the highest mountains of Israel will be their grazing ground. There they will rest in good grazing grounds; they will browse in rich pastures on the mountains of Israel. I myself shall pasture my sheep, I myself shall give them rest–declares the Lord Yahweh. I shall look for the lost one, bring back the stray, bandage the injured and make the sick strong. I shall watch over the fat and healthy. I shall be a true shepherd to them."

 

July 23, 2006 message continues

Messenger:     Jesus was born to lead us strayed sheep
                            home.

                       What does oneness mean.
                            From the second reading —

 

Ephesians 2: 13-18

But now in Christ Jesus, you that used to be so far off have been brought close, by the blood of Christ. For he is the peace between us, and has made the two into one entity and broken down the barrier which used to keep them apart, by destroying in his own person the hostility, that is, the Law of commandments with its decrees. His purpose in this was, by restoring peace, to create a single New Man out of the two of them, and through the cross, to reconcile them both to God in one Body; in his own person he killed the hostility. He came to bring the good news of peace to you who were far off and peace to those who were near. Through him, then, we both in the one Spirit have free access to the Father.

  

July 23, 2006 message continues

Messenger:       The Good Shepherd laid down His
                            life for His sheep —

Jesus speaks:    Come away with Me —

                         Let Me embrace you and

                         Shower you with My saving grace.

                         Be docile.

                         Be humble.

                         Be kind.

                         I am love —

                         What good does it do you to conquer
                            the world and not love.

                        Build My Kingdom —

                        Do not give into selfishness —

                        Love —

                        Some think life should be a
                            "bowl of cherries"

                        They eat the forbidden fruit and
                            then cry in pain and say
                            "Why"

                        Pick the berries with the word
                            "LIFE" on them.

                        Pickers in the berry patch pick
                            nice ones — why pick the
                            nibbled ones.

                        You pick the nibbled berries satan
                            wants when you stay angry —
                            you must not get angry and
                            crippled and not do God's will
                            for you —
                            you fight God's plan —
                            Satan wants you to do his work —

                        Even when it is hard — you do
                            what I want.

                        Look at me carrying the heavy cross.

 

 

July 23, 2006 message continues

Jesus speaks:        Oh precious child of My Father —

                            I teach you love and forgiveness —

                            Did you ever ride a bumper car?

                            Well the way is you move ahead and
                                sometimes someone gives you
                                a "whack" on the side or back —
                                maybe head on —
                                sometimes you sit — like a vibrating
                                little bug and then
                                some way —
                                wow — freedom.

                            You will take the knocks, but your
                                gaze is always on the victory —
                                your salvation —
                                Helping souls to get to heaven —

                            Learning to love more deeply —
                            Striving to be more perfect —
                                more likened to your heavenly Father.

                            Here is your prayer I give you.

 

Prayer for Union with Jesus

    Come to me, Lord, and possess my soul. Come into my heart and permeate my soul. Help me to sit in silence with You and let You work in my heart.

    I am Yours to possess. I am Yours to use. I want to be selfless and only exist in You. Help me to spoon out all that is me and be an empty vessel ready to be filled by You. Help me to die to myself and live only for You. Use me as You will. Let me never draw my attention back to myself. I only want to operate as You do, dwelling within me.

    I am Yours, Lord. I want to have my life in You. I want to do the will of the Father. Give me the strength to put aside the world and let You operate my very being. Help me to act as You desire. Strengthen me against the distractions of the devil to take me from Your work.

    When I worry, I have taken my focus off of You and placed it on myself. Help me not to give in to the promptings of others to change what in my heart You are making very clear to me. I worship You, I adore You and I love You. Come and dwell in me now.

-God's Blue Book, January 17, 1994

  

  

July 23, 2006 message continues

Jesus speaks:        Meditate on every word of the Our Father.

                            Live by the Our Father.

 

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.

Jesus speaks:        LIFE IS SHORT
                            DON'T WASTE A DAY

Messenger:           Pray for your vocation.

                                God help me to be holy.
                                God give me the grace to forgive.
                                God give me the grace to love the Eucharist.

                                God feed me with Your Body and Blood and

                                God, when I am not at Mass — give
                                    me the grace to stay deeply
                                    united to the Masses going
                                    on around the world.

                                God, help me to forgive and love and
                                    Do Your plan.

                                How do we have peace —

Messenger:        We have peace by loving.

                         We have peace by forgiving.

                         We have peace by being grateful.

                         We have peace by letting go of
                                anger and begging God
                                to help us overcome
                                the difficulty.

Jesus speaks:     Build My Kingdom —
                         A Kingdom of love —

                            to forgive —

                            to pray for your enemies —

                            to live to be more perfected —

                            to beg for grace !!

                            Grace and ability to love.

 

                   

Hail Mary

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the Fruit of thy womb, Jesus. * Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

Mary's Message
from the Rosary of August 27, 1996

Mary speaks:  I stood beneath the cross of my Son, and my Heart was in such pain for I saw Him before my eyes. I saw Him covered with blood. I saw Him die. My Heart, my children, my Heart to watch my Son, but my Heart, my Heart, how I suffered for my little children of the world that give in to this world and give up the love of my Son. O my little children of light, I give you this message. Carry this light into the darkness for your Mother Mary, for I stood beneath the cross and I cried. I cried for the little ones. I cried for the young ones, the ones that do not care and will lose their souls. How do I make you see for you will not listen to me? What can I do? I come. I appear. I beg. I plead. I give you these gifts from my Son, and you reject me. I do not deliver messages very often anymore for I have been ignored. The message is the same. You do not read the messages I have given to you. Please help me. Help the little children. I appear. I appear. I appear, and I am ignored. I stood beneath the cross, and I cried. I cried, and my Heart was in such anguish for my little children, for I am searching for them this day as I searched for the Child Jesus. Please, please help me. I cannot hold back the hand of my Son any longer. I am Mary, your Mother. I ask you to help my children. You are my children of light.

Cling to Me

May 13, 1993 

Jesus speaks: My dear child, if you stay close to Me, then I live in you and you live in Me. I am He Who created you and I love you with such an intensity that you will never know. My words are your truth. You must abide in My heart in all things. There is no room for doubt. My ways are steadfast, direct, and without error.

    You must stay rooted in Me to ward off the power of the evil one. His grip is paralyzing and crippling. His power is stronger every day.

    When you live in Me, I am in your heart and he has no power over Me. I am your God. I am your true lover. I want to protect you. I want to guard you from this force. Stay rooted firmly in Me and he will have no power.

    I am He Who comforts you. My hand is upon you. Hold tight to Me, My child. My eyes are fixed right on you. You are My most precious child. I love you as no other can. My arms are about you. My tenderness surrounds you. My love is in your heart. You go not alone. I walk with you.

    I share every aspect of your life with you. Cling to Me, feel My presence. It is warm and secure within your chest. There is no room for fear, for I cast out fear and bring you comfort and joy.

                            to be kind.

                         Prettiness comes from within.
                         My Mother is so beautiful.
                         My Mother is so pure.
                         Don't worry what others are thinking.
                         Live to please your heavenly Father.
                         He loves you so much.

Pray For The Success Of The Priestly Newsletter - Shepherds of Christ

Messenger: The following is the first official message I received before the statue of Mary at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center. It is a personal message for Father Carter.

Mary speaks: (in front of the glowing statue of Our Lady of Sorrows) I am the Immaculate Heart. My Heart is glowing for love of all my beloved children. I am your most loving Mother. I am with you this day. Pray for the success of the priestly newsletter Shepherds of Christ. I am guarding your way. You will receive such graces to accomplish this task! Grace from God is so abundantly bestowed on you and will lead to the success of this endeavor! Pray for this cause at the Center. The priests will lead the people to the love of My beloved Son. This is no little task. It will take many prayers and graces. Pray hard, little one. Your prayers will change many hearts.

I am Mary, your Immaculate Mother. I bring this message to My beloved priest-son.

Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus

My dear fellow Associate Members,

Jesus is calling special apostles to join a new division of the Shepherds of Christ Movement. Here is a message from Jesus given to Father Carter:

    My beloved priest-companion, I am requesting that a new prayer movement be started under the direction of Shepherds of Christ Ministries. I am asking for volunteers who are willing to pray before the Blessed Sacrament for one hour, twice-weekly. Members of the Shepherds of Christ prayer chapters, as well as others, are to be invited to join this movement.

    These apostles are to pray for the intentions I am giving you. For part of the hour they are to use the prayers of the Shepherds of Christ Associates Handbook. They may spend the rest of the hour as they so choose.

    I will use this new prayer movement within My Shepherds of Christ Ministries in a powerful way to help in the renewal of My Church and the world. I will give great graces to those who join this movement. The name, Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus, is to be given to this movement.

    I am inviting My beloved Rita Ring to be coordinator for this activity.

    I pour out the great love of My Sacred Heart to all. I am Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the flock.

    This is indeed a special calling for us to unite in one heart with His Eucharistic Heart and pray for the following intentions:

  1. For the spread of the devotion to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary culminating in the reign of the Sacred Heart and the triumph of the Immaculate Heart.
  2. For the Pope.
  3. For all bishops of the world.
  4. For all priests.
  5. For all sisters and brothers in the religious life.
  6. For all members of the Shepherds of Christ Movement, and for the spread of this movement to the world.
  7. For all members of the Catholic Church.
  8. For all members of the human family.
  9. For all souls in purgatory.
