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.

July 9, 1994

I Must Forgive All To Have Peace

R. My lack of peace is coming from lack of forgiveness. I am living to love God and my brother.

To have anger toward my brother blocks the flow of God’s love operating in me. I must forgive all to have peace.

Any lack of love for my brother diminishes peace.

Say you are sorry and forgive.

I must come from a place of love rooted in Him Who first loved us.

  I realize how I must forgive. I must give up angry thoughts. I reflect my emotions within when I talk to people. I must stay rooted in Christ's love. I must put on Christ. I must show love. He was silent and accepted all they did to Him!

  I must love. I must realize my brothers are dearly loved by Jesus. They are a creation of God the Father. Jesus shed the last drop of His blood for them. Would I talk about my very own brothers? God is our Father, we are brothers in Christ!

  I must stay rooted in love, love of God, love of my brothers. I can pray when problems occur. I must trust in God and talk about our problems from a place of love. If I act angry or talk about someone in anger, I am not spreading Christ's love.

Jesus: Trust in Me, My child. I will give you peace, not as the world gives you peace. Your job is to love Me and love one another. How can I spread My love if you are upset with your brother? He who angers you is he whom you need to love. Will you love for Me this day or will you focus on yourself and how you have been wronged? Reach for the Kingdom of God. It is won in holiness, in love. Love always. When they persecuted Me, I loved them.

    My child, My child, do you know I know best? Pray - come to Me before the tabernacle.

    Pray for strength to love as I have loved you. You, child are so precious to Me. I am always by your side guarding you. Let go and pray. I will make the crooked way straight. I will restore peace and love in your hearts. Be with Me alone, let go, sweet one, come to Me. Meditate on My immense love for you and the love of the Father, Holy Spirit, and your Mother Mary. I love you, so much!

R. I was so filled after Communion with the love of God, especially the Father. I felt I could hardly breathe. The immensity of God's love and Mary's love! My heart overflows with such joy for the love of God!

Mary's Statue Became Illuminated

R. Vision: I was going to Dayton to a party. I stopped at the Center around 6:25 p.m. and prayed the Sorrowful Mysteries with my children. I prayed on each bead. Toward the end of the third mystery, Mary's statue became illuminated. Her face was brilliant, so bright! Her gown was white. Her face was beautiful! I could hardly talk for the next two mysteries. She stayed like this for a long time afterwards.


Explanation of Rosary Meditations and Visions

On July 10, Jesus and Mary told Fr. Carter to go to Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center and pray the rosary with my children and me. He came to the Center every day and led the rosary. Mary told me to say a meditation on every bead.

On July 14, I prayed a meditation on every bead as Fr. Carter led the rosary. During the middle of the fifth mystery, Mary started to change faces. I saw all different expressions, all different ages - older, sorrowful, young, beautiful, mostly joyful. The faces would first be old, then young. Lights would flash on and off.

Insight - Intimacy of Jesus and Mary

R. The Hearts of Jesus and Mary beat within the body of Mary. Her Heart beat life into Their bodies. Her heart was beating - it gave to Him His life in His body. Mary is the Mediatrix of all graces. The Holy Spirit forms us in Mary’s spiritual womb, her Immaculate Heart.

From Fr. Joe Robinson’s Homily Book (my brother)

Reflect on the Word

Pentecost Sunday

May 31, 2009

HOMILY – (Acts 2:1-11; 1 Cor 12:3b-7, 12-13; John 20:19-23) The feast of Pentecost is a very ancient feast that goes back 1000 years before Christ. It was one of the three most important Jewish feasts, and it is one of our three most important feasts. Originally it was a harvest feast. Gradually it came to be a celebration of God giving his Law to the Hebrews at Mt. Sinai and establishing them as his own special people. It was as the Jews were celebrating this feast that the Holy Spirit came upon the first believers in Christ. They were sent forth in power to all people to proclaim God’s saving love demonstrated in Jesus’ death and resurrection. As I was preparing what I was going to say today, I referred to a book I have, entitled I Believe in the Holy Spirit by the Dominican theologian Fr. Yves Congar. The book is almost 700 pages long. It impressed me how much could be said about Pentecost and the Holy Spirit. Just out of curiosity I investigated how often the Holy Spirit was mentioned in the New Testament and I came up with a total of 233 times. I’m not going to try to say it all, so relax! Reading sections of the book, though, makes me realize how fortunate I am that in my job I have the opportunity and the gift to be able to read and reflect on the profound mystery of God and his presence with us in Jesus through the Spirit. (And I receive a salary for doing this! Sometimes I feel guilty taking it for something I enjoy doing so much – but then again there are enough stresses at times that make me think I shouldn’t feel guilty about taking a salary.) I am grateful to be a priest and realize that I have been greatly blessed. It just so happens that 45 years ago today I was ordained. My sister Rita, who is also one of my most avid fans, decided to have a memorial card printed for my anniversary with a prayer for priests on the back of the card. I put some on the radiators in case anyone would want one.

    I would never have survived as long as I did without the help of God’s Holy Spirit. Most of the time I was not even aware that God’s Spirit was helping me. It’s somewhat like that story of the footprints in the sand. Only as I look back do I see the movement of the Spirit keeping me sane through difficult times, giving me ideas when I couldn’t think of the right thing to say, encouraging me when my situation was overwhelming, giving me courage when I was afraid, helping me to pray when my spiritual life seemed to go dry, giving me peace when I lacked it. No wonder Jesus calls the Spirit the “Paraclete,” a word which is hard to translate but which means something like: “advocate, mediator, helper, intercessor or comforter.”

    Many of us probably remember from catechism class naming the fruits of the Spirit and the gifts of the Spirit. The fruits of the Spirit we hear about in the letter to the Galatians (second reading on Pentecost). They tend to be personal qualities such as love, joy, peace, patience, (kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control). The gifts of the Spirit include some personal talents but they tend to be more oriented toward building up the community of believers such as the gifts of wisdom, understanding, counsel, fortitude, knowledge, piety, fear of the Lord, as well as the gifts of healing, miracles, prophecy, discernment of spirit, speaking or praying in tongues, interpretation of tongues, teaching, pastoring, and a whole lot of other ways to help us in our ministry to one another. In speaking of the gifts, we cannot forget the greatest of the Spirit’s gifts which we often hear about at a wedding. St. Paul tells us the greatest of all the Spirit’s gifts is love. St. Augustine, in trying to help us to know for sure whether the Spirit dwells in us, said: “Ask your inner self, if you are full of charity, you have the Spirit of God.” (I Believe in the Holy Spirit, vol. 2, pg 82)

    It’s easy to focus on the activity of the Spirit in our personal lives as the Spirit comes to us through prayer and through the sacraments. But as we celebrate Pentecost, we cannot forget on that occasion the Spirit was given to the Church to guide and direct it and to help it to grow. The Spirit came to the Apostles (and perhaps the other 120 members of the early community of believers) not just for their personal enrichment, but to send them out to all people to proclaim God’s love shown to us through the death and resurrection of Jesus. It remains our task as Church today, as a community of believers to proclaim God’s love. We do this as we gather here in faith right now, but we must also share that love and mystery with others to the extent that we are able.

    Jesus encouraged us in St. Luke’s gospel to pray for the Spirit when he said: “What father among you would hand his son a snake when he asks for a fish? Or hand him a scorpion when he asks for an egg? If you then, who are wicked, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the Father in heaven give the holy spirit to those who ask him?” (Lk. 11:11-12) Amen.

R. Ascension


R. Shepherds - the Baby Jesus, Joseph and Mary - see the sheep


Mary gave her milk to Jesus.

Jesus is Chief Shepherd of the Flock - surrounded by His sheep and the shepherds. Jesus was born. Mary gave Jesus milk. Mary gave to the baby the sweet milk. Mary is Mother of the Body of Christ - the Church.

At the Holy Spirit Center, in the Rosary Chapel we see the Birth of Jesus is a window across from the Ascension window. Christ came to this earth a little baby in the womb of Mary. Christ ascended into heaven. Mary is Mother of the Church, Mary is Mother of the Body of Christ. Christ outpours His life to us in the Church. He gives us the sacraments. He is truly present in the Eucharist.

We receive a sharing in Divine life in baptism. We are nourished by the Eucharist.

Birth - a separateness (She and Jesus)
A connection - Mary gives her milk

Ascension: Jesus ascended into heaven. The Church is the body of Christ. Mary is Mother of the Church.

As we mature more and more in His life, as we become more saturated, we are being formed more and more into His image and likeness.

He no longer walks the earth, He is with us in the consecrated Host.


And a sword too shall pierce your heart, oh Mary.

At the Holy Spirit Center the Presentation window is across from the Resurrection window.

The life of the body - blood and water.

Christ’s Heart was pierced and what came forth was blood and water - Water for Baptism, Blood for the Eucharist.

The Heart is the life of the body. It is through His pierced Heart the Church is born. We are given a partaking in this life in Baptism: the water. We are given that which we need to sustain this life in the Eucharist.

Two Hearts

Life goes from His pierced Heart, through the Heart of Mary as she forms us in her spiritual womb. She was the life support of Her son.

Heart: 7 sorrows - 7 sacraments - 7 Gifts of the Spirit.

Heart with blood and water
Blood and water
- Sacramental life of the Church

Mary’s heart was invisibly pierced with a sword
“And a sword too shall pierce your Heart, oh Mary”

7 wounds - 7 Sacraments

Song Sing: Little Baby Hands and Feet

Jesus is lost in the temple.

Luke 2: 46-49

It happened that, three days later, they found him in the Temple, sitting among the teachers, listening to them, and asking them questions; and all those who heard him were astounded at his intelligence and his replies. They were overcome when they saw him, and his mother said to him, ‘My child, why have you done this to us? See how worried your father and I have been, looking for you.’ He replied, ‘Why were you looking for me? Did you not know that I must be in my Father’s house?’

R. The Final separation was Jesus on the Cross.

We see the lives of Jesus and Mary, Their union in the mysteries of the rosary.

Annunciation - one body
- Two Hearts beat in one body.
- Mary gives Jesus her milk.

Presentation: Mary and Jesus at the Temple.

Luke 2: 35

and a sword will pierce your soul too — so that the secrets thoughts of many may be laid bare.’

R. Separation of Mary and Jesus
The Loss in the Temple

This was a foreshadowing of His death. Jesus died and was put in the tomb -

The Ascension - Jesus glorified went to heaven. St. Ignatius said Jesus appeared to Mary first after the resurrection.

The Presentation in the Temple: “You too will have a pierced heart, oh Mary.” Mary is the Mediatrix of all graces.

Resurrection: Jesus rose on the third day. Mary had wept outside the tomb. Since the presentation in the temple she knew of His sufferings. They shared the secret of these sufferings, silently in Their Hearts. It created such a bond between Them. The Hearts of love, constantly suffering and carrying the cross within Them. This is why the intense sorrow of Mary when Jesus was lost in the temple. She knew of the sufferings to come to some degree from the prophesy of Simeon. She knew she would suffer. How could her Son do this when They were so joined in Their Hearts. “Did you not know we would be concerned?”

Luke 2: 49

He replied, ‘Why were you looking for me? Did you not know that I must be in my Father’s house?’

    Jesus’ Heart was pierced with a lance. Simeon tells Mary her heart would be pierced with a sword.

    The life of the Church flows from the open side of Christ. Mary is the Mediatrix of all grace. Mary lives Simeon’s prophesy. There is a union all through the Rosary between the lives of Jesus and Mary. The interaction between Their Hearts, They were one, They suffered separation. Their separation - Jesus and Mary always joined in a very deep love.

    What is love? Love is in the hearts. There are deep feelings within the Heart, many times unexpressed. Mary pondered many things in her heart. There was separation, there was intimacy. Jesus comes into this world in Mary’s womb. The Two Hearts beat within the body of Mary. The physical life of Jesus depended on Mary. His Heart beats because of this life given to Him from her. Do we see that the existence of the Child Jesus within the womb of His Mother depended on the Heart of Mary? Does this not tell us of Mary’s role to the Father. For two of the fifteen mysteries of the Rosary, we meditate on Jesus within His Mother’s womb. Such oneness between Jesus and Mary. They are in the same body.

    So much comes into play in each Mystery of the Rosary. We can meditate on each mystery separately. We can meditate on the mysteries in relationship to one another. We meditate on the Rosary as the Christ event.

    Do we see the unseen God in the mysteries? The presence of the Father and the Holy Spirit? We walk the earth but are guarded and watched from above. The angels and saints forever present at every Mass.

    We see the priest, we see the host. Do we know the Almighty God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit love us so much? Mary is so closely united to Jesus. Do we see as we walk this earth the presence of the Almighty God?

    Jesus and Mary are on the earth for the first ten mysteries. Jesus rose from the dead. Jesus ascended into heaven.

Joyful: The angel appeared. Mary was chosen to be the Mother of God. The Child Jesus was formed in her womb and received His physical life support through Mary. The Heart of Jesus was formed in her womb.

    Mary is the Mediatrix of all grace. The world, the Church and the individual Christian are in the state of becoming more and more in the image of Jesus. The incarnation goes on in us.

    This is the mission of the Shepherds of Christ to help renew the Church and the world. To tell the Church about how important Mary’s role is as Mother of the Church. Mary is our spiritual Mother.


The Holy Spirit and Mary

    The late Archbishop Luis M. Martinez of Mexico strikingly speaks of the ongoing cooperation of Mary with the Holy Spirit regarding the reproduction of Jesus within us: “Christian life is the reproduction of Jesus in souls…

    “Now, how will this mystical reproduction be brought about in souls? In the same way in which Jesus was brought into the world, for God gives a wonderful mark of unity to all His works. Divine acts have a wealth of variety because they are the work of omnipotence; nevertheless, a most perfect unity always shines forth from them because they are the fruit of wisdom; and this divine contrast of unity and variety stamps the works of God with sublime and unutterable beauty.

    “In His miraculous birth, Jesus was the fruit of heaven and earth…The Holy Spirit conveyed the divine fruitfulness of the Father to Mary, and the virginal soil brought forth in an ineffable manner our most loving Savior, the divine Seed, as the prophets called Him… “That is the way He is reproduced in souls. He is always the fruit of heaven and earth.

    “Two artisans must concur in the work that is at once God’s masterpiece and humanity’s supreme product: the Holy Spirit and the most holy Virgin Mary. Two sanctifiers are necessary to souls, the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary, for they are the only ones who can reproduce Christ.

    “Undoubtedly, the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary sanctify us in different ways. The first is the Sanctifier by essence; because He is God, who is infinite sanctity; because He is the personal Love that completes, so to speak, the sanctity of God, consummating His life and His unity, and it belongs to Him to communicate to souls the mystery of that sanctity. The Virgin Mary, for her part, is the co-operator, the indispensable instrument in and by God’s design. From Mary’s maternal relation to the human body of Christ is derived her relation to His Mystical Body which is being formed through all the centuries until the end of time, when it will be lifted up to the heavens, beautiful, splendid, complete, and glorious.

    “These two, then, the Holy Spirit and Mary, are the indispensable artificers of Jesus, the indispensable sanctifiers of souls. Any saint in heaven can co-operate in the sanctification of a soul, but his co-operation is not necessary, not profound, not constant: while the cooperation of these two artisans of Jesus of whom we have just been speaking is so necessary that without it souls are not sanctified (and this by the actual design of Providence), and so intimate that it reaches to the very depths of our soul. For the Holy Spirit pours charity into our heart, makes a habitation of our soul, and directs our spiritual life by means of His gifts. The Virgin Mary has the efficacious influence of Mediatrix in the most profound and delicate operations of grace in our souls. And, finally, the action of the Holy Spirit and the co-operation of the most holy Virgin Mary are constant; without them, not one single character of Jesus would be traced on our souls, no virtue grow, no gift be developed, no grace increased, no bond of union with God be strengthened in the rich flowering of the spiritual life.

    “Such is the place that the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary have in the order of sanctification. Therefore, Christian piety should put these two artisans of Christ in their true place, making devotion to them something necessary, profound, and constant.” The Sanctifier, op. cit. pp. 5-7.


July 9, 1996

This rosary was led by Fr. Carter on Tuesday, July the 9, 1996 during the Shepherds of Christ Associates Meeting at Tom Arlinghaus’s farm. The meditations and messages were given to Rita Ring during the rosary. All meditations have been discerned by Fr. Edward J. Carter S.J.

Sorrowful Mysteries

The Agony in the Garden

1. Jesus: Put aside all of the thoughts in your heart that do not pertain to Me. You are distracted by many things in your hearts. It is in this rosary that I will give you abundant grace, and you will grow more and more in My love.

2. R. We see Jesus as He kneels in the garden.

Jesus: You will be tested and tried, My beloved one. You will grow from these trials for I am giving to you great grace. You do not know of the sufferings that you will experience, but I am with you at every moment. You must surrender and come to My Heart for it is there that you will find refuge from the darkest night. I will never leave you. I am Jesus. I am with you at every moment. Do you feel My presence within your heart? Come to Me and know My precious love for you.

3. R. I see Jesus in the garden. How many times we have suffered in our lives, felt the suffering so deep within our hearts? Do we know from this suffering a little of the immense pain that Jesus suffered in the garden? Think of Jesus in the garden. He was in such anguish that He sweat blood. How little are these trials that He gives to us! We carry our cross on our backs with glum faces and feel upset in our hearts. Jesus showed us the way. He showed us His suffering. He asked us to meditate on His suffering that we will know more His great love for us.

4. R. I look back, Jesus, to the messages in the Second Blue Book - so many messages on surrender and letting go. So long ago, two and a half years ago, but today I am learning to surrender, surrender, surrender. I thought, then, that I knew the meaning of the word “surrender”, but I see today I know so little of the meaning of this word. I know only by Your grace that I will surrender and give myself to You.

5. R. We see Jesus as He kneels in the garden of Gethsemane, and we know how He surrendered to the will of the Father. It is in living according to the will of the Father that we will have peace and joy in our lives. Jesus shows us the way. If we meditate on the mysteries of this rosary, His life will live in our lives.

6. R. I opened the Second Blue Book, today, to the message that says, “Jesus wants both feet off the ground.” At the time I received this message, January 18th 1994, I thought I knew what it was to surrender for I had surrendered so many things already. But I learn more and more each day how I need to surrender, and it is only through Him that I will surrender. I see Jesus in the garden, His face covered with a bloody sweat, and I know that He surrendered to the will of the Father.

7. R. Why are we here? Why are we gathered here to pray this rosary? What is God asking of each of us? God is asking us to give ourselves to help in the salvation of souls. For nine months our Blessed Lady called out to me, and told me of her children that were going to hell. I know, as if deeply engraved in my heart, the reality of souls going to hell this day. It is this pain that I feel in my heart that helps me to go on and to help, as much as I can, with the work of saving souls.

8. R. I see Jesus in the garden, and He looks all alone. The Apostles are asleep, and His face is covered with blood. I see Him there with agony in His face and tension in His body, and within His Heart He knows all of His precious souls that will neglect Him and forget Him despite His suffering.

Jesus: Do you know what it is, My beloved ones, to love, to love, and to be ignored?

9. R. Over and over again, I experienced the suffering of Jesus, before the tabernacle, for the souls that neglect Him and treat Him with such indifference. He called out, “Tell them! Tell them how I am longing and waiting for them to come to Me!” It is such agony to know that Jesus loves His precious souls so much, and He is ignored - Jesus, the Heart of burning love.

10. R. This is the message that He has delivered over and over again - “I am alive! I am alive! I am alive, and I am longing and thirsting for My precious souls to come and to tell Me of their love.” He calls out, “Bring Me souls! Bring Me souls!” It is in our prayers and sacrifices, it is in proceeding steadfastly ahead in the struggles and all the trials, that we help in the work of redemption. It is so important that we identify, in our lives, with Him, that we give our hearts to Jesus and Mary and that our every act be united to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, that grace might be poured out on this darkened world for the salvation of souls. This is why He has called us here. This is why our heavenly Mother appeared over and over again. This is why He sweat blood in the garden of Gethsemane. He would have suffered more because He loves so much. His greatest agony was the agony that He suffered for the souls that would neglect Him and treat Him with indifference and then would be lost forever to the fires of hell.


The Scourging at the Pillar

1. R. And so we wake and we go through the day, and we go to bed each night, and we go through many trials and sufferings, and it seems, many times, that we would like to quit. Look at Jesus. See Him, His hands tied to the pillar. See Him as He stands there, and the men come with their sharp instruments to beat Him.

2. Song: I have called you by name....

3. R. Why would God come and talk to us? This situation is so urgent. This world has turned to such sin. Mary appeared at Fatima, and she told men that they must stop offending God. She gave them a peace plan. They ignored our heavenly Mother, and there was World War II. See Jesus at the pillar. Mary wants us to meditate on the mysteries of the rosary so that His life will live in our lives. Today the world is in such a sorry state. He has called us as His apostles to go into the world so that He will live in us and minister to His beloved souls through us. Who are we that God loves us so much that He lives in us and that His life flows through us?

4. R. Within our soul is the craving for God’s love - the craving to love and to be loved, yet we feel empty many times. We are wanting for love. If we meditate on the mysteries of the rosary, if we see the blood covered face of Jesus and the torn flesh of His body, how can we not realize how much He loves us?

5. R. The world is very sick. The Church and the world are in need of renewal.

6. R. Jesus has called us in the Shepherds of Christ Movement to go into the world and to carry the messages of His love.

7. R. The trial that you are suffering today may be very difficult, but if we look at the torn body of Jesus, it will seem so small.

8. R. How Jesus loves each one of us, that He came into this world a helpless baby, that He gave Himself as a sacrifice for our sins!

9. R. Look at the world today and the sins of the flesh. Look at the world in all of its vileness. How brazen are all those who parade such filth on the screen for children to learn at such an early age. Look at what we see on our TV screens and at the movie theaters, and then look at the body of Jesus covered with wounds.

10. R. Mary said at Fatima that we must stop offending God. This is why Jesus and Mary are giving us these messages this day. This situation is very urgent. There are many souls that are going into hell. It may be very hard, but as we press forward millions and millions of souls will be saved through this movement. There are many devils that are battling us as we proceed, but how can we say “no” to Jesus and Mary?


The Crowning with Thorns

1. R. Look at the haughty hearts of so many today. Our own hearts, our hearts that are so fixed in getting ahead and being first. Look at the pride and the control in the minds of men, and then look at the head of Jesus as they pound into His head the sharp thorns that pierced His head and made Him bleed.

2. R. How we whine and we complain about so many little trials that we must suffer. Did Jesus ever have a headache? Look at the wounded head of our Savior.

3. R. Mary is calling us to prayer and sacrifice.

4. R. The bell tolls and at every second, every act that we perform, when offered as a sacrifice to the Father, in union with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, becomes a heroic deed in helping in the work of redemption.

5. R. God came and gave Himself. He was spit on. He was crowned with thorns. He was mocked. He was kicked. He was whipped, and they tore His flesh. This is the love that He has for us. He wants each and every soul in heaven with Him. He is calling us to give of ourselves to help in the work of redemption.

6. R. Jesus appears with a crown of thorns around His Heart - His precious Heart, pierced by the indifference and the hatred of the souls that He loves. Let us comfort His Heart with our acts of love, and let us vow to go into this world and to fight, despite all the struggle and all the obstacles that Satan has created, to go into this world and to carry the greatest news that there is to the souls that are starving, that are hungry, and that are in pain - the news that our beloved Savior loves us.

7. Song: Only this I want, but to know the Lord...

8. R. The more we are united to Jesus, the more we help souls get to heaven, and someday we will receive a crown of glory and be with Him in such celestial bliss for all eternity. 9. Jesus: My beloved ones, I have called you to this Farm to hear this message. I long for My precious souls to come to Me. Will you bring these souls to Me? Will you help through your trials and your sufferings to continue to bring souls to Me? I am so thirsty for souls, My precious souls that I love so much.

10. R. And they spit on Jesus, and they mocked Him. They hurled hateful remarks at the Almighty God, and He was silent. He withstood all of this treatment for within His Heart was divine love, His Heart on fire for His precious souls.


The Carrying of the Cross

1. R. He walked with a heavy cross on His back, and within His Heart was burning love for His precious souls.

2. R. If Jesus was here at this moment, if we saw Him humped over with the cross on His back, if we saw the blood as it poured down from His crowned head, if we saw His blood covered face and the suffering in His face, would we believe then that He loves us?

3. R. It is in realizing His immense love for us that we will carry this love to others. You must read all the messages that He has given to us. With our hearts on fire, receiving the love letters from our beloved one to us, do we hear Jesus say over and over again, “I love you. I love you. I love you.”? Jesus will fill us with His love, and when we are filled with this love we will carry this love to others.

4. R. The souls, today, are hungry. They need to be fed with the love of God. They are starving. Where do the children go that have not even been told about the love of God? Look at Jesus with His cross on His back. This is the love that He has for each soul. It is up to us to carry this message to the world, for the world is suffering and in need of this message. Vile deeds will continue until the message of His love is carried out to the hurting souls.

5. R. Mary walked by her beloved Son knowing in her heart that He was the Almighty God. Think of the heart of Mary and how she suffered such anguish to watch her beloved Jesus.

6. R. Day after day after day, Mary appeared for 14 months and cried out that we must change our ways, that we must help the children, that we must spread the rosary and the consecration to the children. The message was the same - you are offending God, and souls are going into hell.

7. R. Mary looked into the face of her beloved Son. Can you imagine what she saw when she looked into His eyes, His beautiful eyes surrounded by blood and wounds? Can you imagine the heart of Mary as she looks into the face of her Son, knowing of all of the souls that would be lost despite His suffering?

8. R. Jesus looked into the face of Mary, and He was comforted by the sight of His Mother, His Mother that He loved so much. But He saw her suffering, and His Heart was in such pain and sorrow to see His Mother suffer.

9. R. Mary calls out today for the little lost children, the children that she loves so much, her children, and she asks us to be a mother to these children. She asks us to pray and to sacrifice. She asks us to teach the children about the rosary and to teach the children about the love of Jesus and the love of their Mother.

10. R. Can we share the cross of Christ with Jesus? Can we comfort His aching Heart by bringing to Him His precious souls? Many souls will be lost if we give into the temptation to give up. It will become difficult and hard. Can we look into the eyes of Jesus as Mary looked into the eyes of Jesus, and say to Jesus covered with blood, crowned with thorns, cross on His back, “Jesus this is too hard.”?


The Crucifixion and Death of Jesus

1. R. To His death on the cross, He gave Himself. He always did the Father’s will. He’s asking us, today, to help in the act of redemption, to help the souls that are suffering, to sacrifice, to offer every act that we do as a sacrifice to help save souls.

2. R. I see the body of Jesus humped over, withered, so frail, and so weak. This is the Almighty God - all powerful and almighty. It is God.

Jesus: I am the Almighty God.

R. We see Jesus in this state hanging from the cross. At any moment, He could have come down from the cross, but Jesus gave Himself that we would be saved. He lives in us this day. He acts in us this day. As we become one in Him, He operates through us this day. He loves through us this day. He gives to others through us this day. He shows us that the road is a road that is filled with suffering and trials, but He shows us the resurrection.

3. R. Do we know what it is to be wrapped with the divine embrace of the Almighty God - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit?

4. R. For all eternity we will be wrapped by this embrace. We will be completely satisfied, and our hearts will be at rest. He asks us, this day, to serve Him, to love Him, to give ourselves to Him. He shows us how He loves us. He gave Himself as a sacrifice on the cross for us.

5. Song: O burning Heart, O love divine...

6. R. The Almighty God loves us so much that He came into this world a little baby, and He gave Himself as a sacrifice on the cross. Jesus remains with us this day in His divinity and humanity, truly present in the Holy Eucharist, and our eyes behold the consecrated Host.

7. Song: Come unto Me all who weary...

8. R. Jesus no longer walks the earth, but He lives in this world today. He lives in our hearts. He is asking us to be one with Him that He can operate through us and touch the souls of His beloved ones today.

9. R. We see Mary hold the little child in her arms, and we see Mary hold the lifeless body of Jesus in her arms under the cross. Jesus complied to the will of His Father. He is asking us this day to do the Father’s will, to help in His plan, to help save souls. We do not realize how important all of our actions are in this plan of the Father to help save souls.

10. R. Jesus gave Himself on the cross, and He asks us to give ourselves to Him as a sacrifice. When we give ourselves in love to Jesus, we will unite in such love with the Almighty God.

Message: We cannot say “no” to Jesus, that this is too hard. For all eternity many souls will be lost. What we do is so important. I hear Jesus call out, “Bring Me souls! Bring Me souls!” God is asking us to carry our cross as He carried His cross, for what we do is so important to His precious souls.


Excerpt from Blue Book 16

Pray for Holy Spirit

Message from Jesus

It will be an energy that will rock the earth. He will rock us off our rockers. The Holy Spirit will descend on the hearts of the Shepherds of Christ members and they will be filled with the fire of God’s love. Dear Holy Spirit come to us.

On the day, July 13, 1917, the Blessed Virgin appeared at Fatima and showed the children hell.

I give to you a great grace and flood the movement with the fire of God’s love.

There will be a virgin birth of all members through the power of the Holy Spirit. These hearts will be filled with the fire of God’s love.

You must pray for the priests, the bishops, the cardinals and the pope to support the Shepherds of Christ Movement.

Circulate the prayer before the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass to all Churches throughout this world.

The Holy Spirit will flood the hearts with grace and wisdom and light.

The children of light will march on the earth in the Shepherds of Christ Movement.

R. When Joshua died after taken the chosen people to the Promised Land, they began worshipping false gods. God allowed the Philistines and Amorites to fight them.

Rebuilding Jerusalem after the fall of Babylon was hard for the Jews. Jesus gave me messages that were ignored at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center. We were told about devotion before the tabernacle.

The corner fell off the Holy Spirit Center and also the city of Falmouth flooded where Mary had appeared to another visionary.

I see the rebuilding was difficult for the Jews after Babylon had taken their land. The rebuilding of the fallen corner and the rebuilding of the Falmouth Flood was hard.

This picture shows the collapse on March 22, 1994 of a wing at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center, Norwood, Ohio. March 22, 1994 was Lucia, main Fatima visionary’s birthday. Jesus warned every day from February 22, 1994 to March 22, 1994 there would be a big boom.

I am a messenger. The messages given to help bring about the completion of the Fatima message were blocked.

On March 22, 1994 at 10:30 a.m. Jesus told me I would be sitting on a chair, the floor would shake under my feet and I would hear the biggest boom I ever heard.

Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center: About 14 of the people there were going in for a rosary in the Rosary Chapel at 1:00. I had tried to deliver another message and I was ignored. I wanted to cry from frustration. I looked up at the ceiling and said to Jesus, “you handle this, Jesus, it is yours. I have done all I can do to deliver your messages to promote devotion to the Eucharist and your love. These are your messages, you do something.” Wanting to run and leave, I started to cry. Jesus said, “Go to the chapel and pray the rosary.” I went into the Rosary chapel and they had said the Creed and a few Hail Mary’s. I sat on the chair feeling so bad inside, holding back my tears. about the 9th Hail Mary or so of the first mystery I heard the biggest boom I ever heard. It lasted about three minutes, it seemed. The floor shook under my feet as I sat on my chair and I know it was Him. For the first time after a month of my stomach being in knots I was relieved. He acted. Everyone got up and was alarmed and I felt comforted for I thought, “Thank God, now they will believe.” We went out of the chapel and I looked down the hall and saw the sky. The entire end wing had fallen off. We ran from the building and outside there was a hole, surrounded by bricks that looked as if they had been laid neatly around the hole. The cloud of dust in the hole was sky high.

I remembered the message I received from Jesus March 7, 1994. This is recorded in God’s Blue Book Vol. II (p. 147-149) I delivered it and my stomach was scared from the words of Jesus. (15 days before the collapsed corner)

March 7, 1994 - Jesus: “Busy yourself for your day is at hand and you will know My might! I will shake the earth and you will listen. Then you will listen, but where were you when I gave you forewarning? You are waiting for the big boom. I am calling you now to listen to Me here...Time is so short. One moment and it is up in smoke...What do I do to shake you? I, in all My might, can rock you off your rockers. I try to prepare you but you are too busy. Hold on to your last piece of dust and watch it go up in your face!

I am Jesus Christ, Son of God and I write to you and who pays heed here? This should tell you of your attachment to worldly things. You want proof. You look the other way. I am God and you contain the mighty medicine for this sick world. I am Jesus, the Son of God. Do you listen?”

*There are many more messages. Please call us for a free copy of the Blue Book II.

9 days before the collapsed corner

March 13, 1994 - Jesus: “You must tell them how I wait for them. I wait. I want them to come and I will give them such love! Tell them, Rita, tell them! Your discontent is from what emotions I give you and you keep them inside. I want all to know Me and My love. I am crying out to you, little one. Tell them, tell them. Do not waste any time. I am crying out for you to spread this message. I want you to tell all of My love and how I am waiting. Emotion! Emotion! I am crying out to you in your heart! I long for their love. I died for them. How do I make them know if you, to whom I speak, hold back? I want you to get the messages out, child...

Ready yourself for a big boom. No one is listening. I am crying out to you. Prepare your brothers. They are in darkness....I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I am on fire for love of them. I am Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God. I call you to this state of urgency. Move your friends by this urgent letter. There is no more time to waste. I call you all here to deliver this message personally to you. I am Jesus. I am begging each of you to spread My message. Tell them of My ardent love. In each moment you waste, souls will be lost.”

Rebuilding – they had to rebuild because of the collapsed corner. The city of Falmouth had to rebuild after the flood.  

Revelation 21: 1-2

Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; the first heaven and the first earth had disappeared now, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride dressed for her husband.

                Mary: Pray to the Holy Spirit.

                Keep consecrating to the Sacred Heart and my
                Immaculate Heart as I have told you.

                Do not let up on your prayers –

                China is the Eucharistic Center of the world.

                I appear as Our Lady of Clearwater to
                    deliver these message from
                    God the Father –

                25 years later May 5, 1995

                26 years ago this was blocked May 4, 1994.

                I am Mary your Mother –

                Tell Sheila to read my message
                    from 2 days ago and this
                    and May 5, 1995
                            May 4, 1994
                    and do the rosary in today's
                    daily message from Blue Book 10.

May 5, 1995

Consecrate Your Churches, Home, and Workplace to Our Hearts

Jesus: I want you to consecrate the human race to Sacred Heart of Jesus. I want to be enthroned in all homes, churches, and businesses.

June is the month of the Sacred Heart. I want to be king and center of all hearts. I will keep My promises given to St. Margaret Mary of Alacoque. I promise all this from My most Sacred Heart. Consecrate your chapter to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Consecrate the church or room in which you hold your meeting.

Today is First Friday. I want you to circulate the message I gave to you on consecrating your homes to My Sacred Heart. Make booklets available for people to be able to consecrate their homes and businesses easily. Use the message I gave to you when you consecrated your home.

The Sacred Heart of Jesus will reign and the Immaculate Heart of Mary will triumph. Consecrate all homes and businesses to Our Two Hearts. Tell all to have displayed and honored, pictures of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary. May and June are the months of Mary and the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Tell all to consecrate their homes to Our Two Hearts. I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus. On this day, the 5th of May, 1995, First Friday, I request that you spend the next two months encouraging all to do this consecration.

Gather your friends and say the prayers I have instructed you to say. Sing "To Jesus Heart All Burning" and "Immaculate Mary." May these Two Hearts of love give all members of the human race peace, joy and love in their hearts.

R. Jesus said He desires to be honored by men in the Blessed Sacrament.

Jesus: Circulate the Blue Book messages. They promote this devotion. How My Heart is filled with happiness by the souls who come to the tabernacle and sit with Me. I am Jesus Christ, I wait and long and thirst for My precious souls to come. The souls of men have turned cold. I want souls to come to daily communion and be with Me in front of the tabernacle.

Men's hearts have turned cold. They do not know what love really means. I want hearts that are filled with fire for love of God. Men's hearts have turned to stone.

You are to promote devotion to My most Sacred Heart. I want hearts that burn with love for My Heart. It is through Me that you will know the Father's love. I am the Way, I am the Truth, I am the Life.

Offer a holy hour for the indifference, ingratitude, and sacrileges committed against Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, the Sacrament of His greatest love.

R. He promises great graces to those who give reparation to His Sacred Heart and who tell others about offering reparation to Him.  end of May 5, 1995

 From the Lectionary

                        Pentecost Sequence

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.


May 2, 2020 - First Saturday

R. Let the thoughts be positive.
My God help everything in my brain and body to work toward health.

God gave us a beautiful body.
The brain is the pilot. Let it be filled with light and healing energy.
God gave us this beautiful machine to operate through life.
Our eyes help us see.

Our brain helps direct the body.

Our ears give us hearing.

Our arms and legs help us live, maneuver.

Oh God thank You for all You have given us.

You gave us breath for our body.
You gave us organs to operate, so we can live.

You gave us cells to reproduce, a skeleton and nerves.

You gave us blood and a system to maintain life.
Oh God thank You for the peace we can have, the interior life, the brain to think,
the heart to love.

Oh God thank You for the world with such beauty, the sky, the rolling hills and mountains, lakes and streams, the ocean so wide and beautiful.

Oh God all the animals, fish, greenery and flowers.

So much beauty, God.

God is love.
God gives us each other to love, to know, to be with.

God gives us our family to love, to be with.

Oh my God, You are so good to me.

My God, Thank You.

I love Thee so.

God is love and in Him is no darkness.

God loved us into existence. God wants us with Him.

Pure and perfect love.

Thank You God for this day and all it brings.

I love You.

Guiding Light - Reflect on the Word
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. $15

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. $15

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. $15

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. $15

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
