Messenger:     I come as a messenger of God.

                        I deliver a message.

                        Today is Sunday.

                        If I gave a message to all the beloved priests
                            of the world it would be when they celebrate
                            Mass to pray so fervently that all the
                            souls of the earth know Jesus and
                            honor Him as the Son of God.

Jesus speaks: 

                        Oh My People,

                            I love you so very much come to My Sacred
                        Heart that I might shower you with
                        My gifts and outpour My love to thee.

                        Oh My People, what is truly in your hearts?

                        Do you give to get something back 
                            for yourself?

                        Do you give to receive love for yourself
                            and if you did not receive it, you 
                            would in the future stop giving, stop loving
                            and be mean?

                        Oh My people, look at  your hearts.

                        Do you live in harmony?

                        Do you live to spread My love?

                        Is love in your own heart or  - do you think
                            you live to spread My love, but you,
                            yourself can become very unloving
                            doing it.

                        That isn't what I want.

                        I want you to love, to be loving and then
                            you spread this love to others, it
                            overflows from your very being.

                        Spreading love isn't a history course
                            to learn and then you do it because
                            you have the information in your head.

                        Love is rooted in Me.
                        Love should flow from your being.

                        Love is in the heart.

                        Remember the story from the Rosary
                            January 13, 2000.

                        Do you throw away your husband's favorite
                            chair for his birthday and buy him
                            a new one so your "club ladies"
                            will think your house is so "spiffy".

                        Oh child, I am God, do you think I do
                            not have the knowledge of words
                            like "spiffy" and "club ladies",
                            "gas stations" and "K-Mart".

                        So many mocked my letters for the use of
                            every day words. Why wouldn't
                            I write to you today in the way
                            you would understand.

                        Many of  you are blind, you do not see.
                            If I deliver a message, why would
                                I use language you would not

                        The message of December 29, 1993 was
                            very clear because of My choice
                            of words. From circulating it on the "gold
                            sheets" many went to the tabernacle
                            and go every day now. Many churches were
                            opened for Eucharistic Adoration after
                            people begged their priests for this -
                            having read the message.

                        For two years there was bickering
                            about My words that blocked the 
                            Publication of Blue Book III.

                        This further blocked the publication
                            of Blue Book IV to X.

                        Some people do not even understand how
                            "uppity" they can become in
                            thinking things should be a
                            certain way.

                        Some people helping on the Newsletter would 
                            try to get Fr. Carter to change his wording.

                        I directed Fr. Carter to write the Priestly

                        Soon those who just helped him get
                            them out were the only ones helping on the

                        I am giving these writings to help renew
                            the Church and the world.

                        Some are not open.

                        How do I reach you?

                        I give you this sign.

Jesus speaks:  These are pictures taken during the 6:20
                            prayers at the special meeting
                            called by Mary on the 5th of the
                            month since the end of March, 1995.

                        Public gatherings.

                        Who comes to see the lady so beautiful and sweet?

                        Who comes to see her adorned in gold?

                        So many people had their own agenda and this
                            blocked the messages.

                        When Mary appeared at Our Lady of the Holy 
                            Spirit Center July 5, 1994 to September 5, 1995,
                            daily some did all they could to try to
                            get the Shepherds of Christ out of Our Lady of
                            of the Holy Spirit Center.

                        They still do this today, some there are
                            very focused on this.

                        You do not block the people

                                YOU BLOCK ME —

                                I have given these messages and
                                    writings to help bring about
                                    the Reign of My Sacred Heart
                                    and triumph of Mary's Immaculate

                                    YOU BLOCK THE MESSAGE

                                    DO YOU  THINK
                                        GOD WOULD SEND SUCH

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.

Messenger:     At Church today I was given the following
                            vision as the priest gave his homily.

                        About 5 days before he was a priest he asked
                            God to help him know His will.

                        He opened the Bible to the Following 3 scripture


Scripture 1 )   John 18: 15-18, 25-27

Simon Peter, with another disciple, followed Jesus. This disciple, who was known to the high priest, went with Jesus into the high priest’s palace, but Peter stayed outside the door. So the other disciple, the one known to the high priest, went out, spoke to the door–keeper and brought Peter in. The girl on duty at the door said to Peter, ‘Aren’t you another of that man’s disciples?’ He answered, ‘I am not.’ Now it was cold, and the servants and guards had lit a charcoal fire and were standing there warming themselves; so Peter stood there too, warming himself with the others.  

As Simon Peter stood there warming himself, someone said to him, ‘Aren’t you another of his disciples?’ He denied it saying, ‘I am not.’ One of the high priest’s servants, a relation of the man whose ear Peter had cut off, said, ‘Didn’t I see you in the garden with him?’ Again Peter denied it; and at once a cock crowed.



Scripture 2 )    Acts 2: 14-41

Peter’s address to the crowd

Then Peter stood up with the Eleven and addressed them in a loud voice:

 ‘Men of Judaea, and all you who live in Jerusalem, make no mistake about this, but listen carefully to what I say. These men are not drunk, as you imagine; why, it is only the third hour of the day. On the contrary, this is what the prophet was saying:

In the last days—the Lord declares—
I shall pour out my Spirit on all humanity.
Your sons and daughters shall prophesy, 
your young people shall see visions, 
your old people dream dreams.
Even on the slaves, men and women, 
shall I pour out my Spirit.
I will show portents in the sky
and signs on the earth
The sun will be turned into darkness 
and the moon into blood
 before the day of the Lord comes,
 that great and terrible Day.
And all who call on the name of the Lord 
    will be saved. 

    ‘Men of Israel, listen to what I am going to say: Jesus the Nazarene was a man commended to you by God by the miracles and portents and signs that God worked through him when he was among you, as you know. This man, who was put into your power by the deliberate intention and foreknowledge of God, you took and had crucified and killed by men outside the Law. But God raised him to life, freeing him from the pangs of Hades; for it was impossible for him to be held in its power since, as David says of him: 

    I kept the Lord before my sight always,
    for with him at my right hand 
        nothing can shake me.
    So my heart rejoiced 
    my tongue delighted; 
    my body, too, will rest secure,
    for you will not abandon me to Hades 
    or allow your holy one to see corruption.
    You have taught me the way of life,
     you will fill me with joy in your presence.

‘Brothers, no one can deny that the patriarch David himself is dead and buried: his tomb is still with us. But since he was a prophet, and knew that God had sworn him an oath to make one of his descendants succeed him on the throne, he spoke with foreknowledge about the resurrection of the Christ: he is the one who was not abandoned to Hades, and whose body did not see corruption. God raised this man Jesus to life, and of that we are all witnesses. Now raised to the heights by God’s right hand, he has received from the Father the Holy Spirit, who was promised, and what you see and hear is the outpouring of that Spirit. For David himself never went up to heaven, but yet he said: 

    The Lord declared to my Lord, 
    take your seat at my right hand,
    till I have made your enemies 
    your footstool. 

‘For this reason the whole House of Israel can be certain that the Lord and Christ whom God has made is this Jesus whom you crucified.’

The first conversions

Hearing this, they were cut to the heart and said to Peter and the other apostles, ‘What are we to do, brothers?’ ‘You must repent,’ Peter answered, ‘and every one of you must be baptised in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. The promise that was made is for you and your children, and for all those who are far away, for all those whom the Lord our God is calling to himself.’ He spoke to them for a long time using many other arguments, and he urged them, ‘Save yourselves from this perverse generation.’ They accepted what he said and were baptised. That very day about three thousand were added to their number.



Scripture 3 )     John 21: 15-19

When they had eaten, Jesus said to Simon Peter, ‘Simon son of John, do you love me more than these others do?’ He answered, ‘Yes, Lord, you know I love you.’ Jesus said to him, ‘Feed my lambs.’ A second time he said to him, ‘Simon son of John, do you love me?’ He replied, ‘Yes, Lord, you know I love you.’ Jesus said to him, ‘Look after my sheep.’ Then he said to him a third time, ‘Simon son of John, do you love me?’ Peter was hurt that he asked him a third time, ‘Do you love me?’ and said, ‘Lord, you know everything; you know I love you.’ Jesus said to him, ‘Feed my sheep.

Messenger:     During his homily I had the following

                        What stood out was the sheep.
                        I first saw the white sheep before me.
                        The sheep was on his nose.

                        He was white, his legs faced
                            a figure to my right.

                        It was that of a man, sort of in the
                            shadows. He stood much taller than the sheep with
                            dark hair.

                        To the other side of the sheep was a big stage.
                            This was to my left as I faced the sheep.

                        The sheep was very white and very

                            and bright on the stage.

                        The lights seemed to come at an angle
                            from the side where the figure of
                            of the man was.

                        I wrote roughly on the paper.

                        As I looked up I heard the priest
                            speaking so very clearly
                            he said
                                    "Feed My Sheep, Feed My Sheep"

                        I recall as I write, about the 6 weeks before
                            I received messages September, 1991.

                        I quote from the front of Blue Book I, to the reader

God's Blue Book I Cover

Excerpt from TO THE READER
in God's Blue Book

Messenger:  ...After a long and seemingly endless search, trying to hear God, He told me to "feed the hungry." For six weeks this was all I heard. I thought maybe I wasn't feeding my children well or eating well enough myself. What a long wait for three words! At long last one day, as I was writing to Jesus, I received a letter back. He told me, "I am Jesus, Son of the Living God." I did not want to write this but it kept coming-and so many other messages. I knew nothing of anyone getting messages. I wrote them, reluctantly, and hid my notebooks. The letters kept coming-a lot in the night-and I would be awakened by long letters which I felt compelled to get up and write down. I read these letters privately and my life began to change. I felt a new life within me.

Messenger:     Here we are all these years later since September, 1991.                        

                        And I hear the priest say "Feed My Sheep" and
                            I am receiving this vision of a sheep
                            on his nose, legs out in the air,
                            and his tail in the air, while the figure
                            of a man, I believe with a beard, is
                            on one side of him in the shadows
                            and the stage with golden light is
                            empty and to the other side of the sheep, a big
                            part of the vision was the stage a little over, empty,
                            but to the back a little. (The sheep was in
                            the front.)

                        We are on a stage here below, such a
                            short time.

                         I remember reading the words of 
                            Robert Schuller one time in
                            a most beautiful book.

                        He had a picture and a lighted stage,
                            it was like that vision in a

                        Robert Schuller said this -
                            God is watching us and we do not
                            see Him.

                        It is so very interesting, I clearly had
                            this vision while the priest was
                            talking and it lasted a long 

                        This priest is the priest who was going
                            to his room right before the
                            corner fell off at Our Lady of 
                            the Holy Spirit Center and
                            his beeper went off, so
                            he left and then the corner
                            fell off.

                        He was in the last class of priests
                            that went out of the old seminary
                            now Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center and 
                            he was ordained June 13, 1981.

                        It was thirty years after Fr. Carter went
                            in the Jesuits.

                        I remember the message of March 20, 1994
                            after two warnings March 7, 1994 and
                            March 13, 1994 that there would be a
                            big boom because no one was listening.

Messenger:     I was sent to the tabernacle March 20, 1994
                            and Our Lord said He would give the

Excerpt from March 20, 1994

Jesus speaks:  I am God. I am so tired with you to publish these letters. You are going to suffer for the souls will be lost while you tarry. Tarry more and do your own thing. Why should I give you any messages? You have not published any that I gave you. If you do not do this work, I will give them to someone who will. I am so tired with you. You are not doing My will and this world is suffering for your delays.

                        It was then during those early apparitions of Mary
                            Fr. Carter began to pray the prayers of the
                            Shepherds of Christ as directed by Our Lord.

                        He told me when he came to the

Words of Jesus to Members of
Shepherds of Christ Associates:

"My beloved priest-companion, I intend to use the priestly newsletter, Shepherds of Christ, and the movement, Shepherds of Christ Associates, in a powerful way for the renewal of My Church and the world.

"I will use the newsletter and the chapters of Shepherds of Christ Associates as a powerful instrument for spreading devotion to My Heart and My Mother's Heart.

"I am calling many to become members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. To all of them I will give great blessings. I will use them as instruments to help bring about the triumph of the Immaculate Heart and the reign of My Sacred Heart. I will give great graces to the members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. I will call them to be deeply united to My Heart and to Mary's Heart as I lead them ever closer to My Father in the Holy Spirit."

I Want My Priests to Come Back

God's Blue Book II Cover

January 17, 1994 3:40 a.m.

Jesus:  You know I am He Who lifts you up. In one second I can turn your feelings around and lift you up. Constantly pray to Me. You need Me through these times. Remember, I truly died for you on the cross. Remember, little one, I have chosen you to write to Me. Do you think I will ever abandon you? I am a God who truly loves His people. I love you with such ardent love. You must never doubt.

    Look into My face and see My gentleness. I am the kindest of all hearts. I am He who knows how to love with such love. Become totally lost in My arms.

    Do you think Satan will not taunt you? Put him behind you. You are being guarded by God and His heavenly court. Walk in My ways and the angels walk with you on your path. You are escorted on your way and you are never alone. You are guarded as a precious treasure that is being transported to another place.

    You need to put all your cares in My hands. You are developing true trust when you let go and let Me take over. Keep trusting and silence the ugly prompting of Satan who wants you to worry about useless things. Quit worrying and pray and play with your children. I am telling you there is so much peace and grace gained by private prayer with them. I will tend to all the details of your life. Do not worry for one moment. Put your life in My hands. I am here, little one. Read this message and all of them over and over again.

    You need to go to the Blue Book for your answers. Your answers are found there. I never leave your side. God is guarding you. Just continue to have a union with Me all through the day. All the prayer time alone with Me in one day is not enough. I want you in constant prayer.

    Turn to Me and My Blue Book. This will help many priests to come back and sit before Me in private union with Me. When priests come back to the tabernacle, the flock will begin to be led back to His altar. Priests need to read these letters. They are the preachers. If they do not value their own relationship with Jesus, if they are being led away from Me with busyness, they will not preach the intimate love of Jesus. They are so busy, but it is like throwing out the baby with the bath water. I am the center and their relationship with Me is utmost.

    The priests need these messages. They need to have an intimate, close union with Me. They should be preaching "time in front of the tabernacle." They should be preaching My intense love for My people and how I have so much to give. Some sermons are so complicated--yet nothing about union with Me in the Eucharist and in front of the tabernacle.

    I want My priests to come back and pray before My tabernacle. I want them to read these messages and make Jesus the Center of their lives. When they are led back to Jesus, they will lead the flock home. Priests need adoration every day for at least an hour. I don't care how busy they are. None of it matters if they are not spending time in private prayer alone with Me. They need to come and get their supplies. They need to quit thinking they are doing it and turn back to turning their lives totally over to Me, to totally letting their burdens and busy lives off at the foot of My cross and letting Me lead the way.

    There is not one priest who has so much to do that he cannot do private adoration daily. When the priest comes back to the power in the Eucharist and the tabernacle, the congregation will turn to God for their troubled hearts. Satan has led priests away from Jesus. They are so busy they cannot do all their work, but this must all take second place to praying silently before God and reading His words. These letters will help many priests to come back and be intimate with Jesus.

    All the rituals, all the upkeep of the churches, all the little details, and the King of Glory sits alone! You have thrown out the baby with the bath water. You are missing the boat.

    I want the priests to read this message. Where is the reverence after Communion and who has even heard it mentioned in the church? Private union with Jesus! What an honor! I have all you need. Come to Me and I will give you rest. I am all powerful. I have all the power. I am hyper--vigilant over your lives. I guard you. Quit trying to do it yourselves. Become selfless and let Me possess your souls.

    Have the priests spread these messages. Read them in church. I want adoration of the Eucharist back. I want people to know I am God and I am coming to them in Holy Communion. I want the Blessed Sacrament exposed. I want My churches open. Union with Jesus, the love of Jesus, trust, faith, love for one another, love of God--I want all of these preached from the pulpit!

    I am the Alpha and the Omega. I want My people to be led back to the center, which is Jesus. Pray for your priests. They are under attack. If Satan can wreck the family, the priests, the children, he has it made.

    You are under attack, My beloved priests, and you, in your busyness, are being led away from your union with Jesus. Bring yourselves back to Me and let Me give you My love. I am indeed the bridegroom of your souls. I wait for My beloved ones at the altar. I long for private union with all My beloved ones.

    Come to Me, all who labor and are heavily burdened, and I will give you rest. Come and be lifted up to heights you never dreamed possible. I am God. Put your lives in My hands. Let Me run your life. Quit running amok. You have lost your way and are running down the wrong road. Bring your lives back to Jesus in the tabernacle.

    The world is getting farther from God every minute. Read the messages at prayer meetings. Spread them by word of mouth. The time you waste is valuable. These words are not meant to be saved. Spread them here by any means possible. I want them out, I tell you! If someone wants to read some messages, give them to them and let them read them at prayer meetings. There is no secret here. They are from Me and I want them out. I want you to speak. A lot of your discontent is in sitting around with all these messages and not spreading them. Tell your friends to speak. Speak My words here. You don't have to mention the source. Spread the messages. You are not what is important. The messages are. You will be exposed. Don't worry who knows, but don't spread your own story. Spread the messages. Like ripples on a pond, the love of God will be spread throughout the land. I have so much to give to My hurting ones. I am your God. I died for you out of deepest love. I have come in these messages to lead you back home.

    Quit worrying of details. I am He Who runs the show. Pray for guidance every day. Spend one hour in front of the tabernacle. You cannot do in a million years what I can do in one moment. Quit relying on yourselves. You are only pushing buttons. When you are fixed in Me, the right door opens. When you go it alone, you have a hard road to walk. One hour in private adoration. Be silent or read the Blue Book. Your life will become uplifted by My teaching and you will sail a blue sky.

    Spend time in silence and some in reading My words in front of Me. I am talking to you in these letters. What power, to read them in front of the tabernacle! You can't go it alone. You need My help. You need your supplies. But you must come and get them! You are following your tail around if you do it alone. I am He Who can do all this. When you realize My power in adoration, your lives will change. As long as you are too busy you will have a hard time. The soul craves this union with Me.

    Lead the priests back to adoration and the people will follow. Our leaders have become too busy for adoration. This is the key, the key to unlock the doors to the world's problems. It is found in front of the tabernacle, at daily Mass and Communion. Do the priests ever preach any of this? You have forgotten your center, Jesus, in the Eucharist! All the power is found in Jesus. You have all that you need and you walk about and decorate My churches and clean every speck of dust and repair My pews and carpet My house and fix My organs but you walk about and miss the King of Glory who sits there all alone! Spread the messages on the tabernacle. I want them out!

Messenger:     Almost at ten the next morning I
                            received this prayer



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.

                            This is My Movement, Shepherds of Christ,
                                begun through My beloved
                                priest son Fr. Carter.

                            I beg you to help Me.

                            I am God and I have spoken in these
                                messages to My messengers.

Messenger:    From beneath the Sorrowful Mother I
                            write to you.

                        I was sent here by Our Lord, at
                            Our Lady of the Holy Spirit 
                            Center to deliver this message.

                        On August 26, 1997, Our Lord sent Fr. Carter
                            to China to celebrate the first
                            Mass there in our Shepherds of Christ Center, St. Anthony's

Messenger:     He went every day during the week
                            for a long time because he said
                            China, Indiana our center was so
                            important and Our
                            Lord wanted him
                            to celebrate Mass there.

                        Jesus told us China, Indiana was the
                            Eucharistic Center for the world.

                        Now there are very few Masses celebrated
                            in China, Indiana, about twice
                            a month because of the shortage
                            of priests, but we pray intently
                            every month before the exposed

                            each month until the 14th
                            from China for the priests, the
                            Church and the world.

                        Fr. Carter always began this adoration
                            with a Mass at 12:00 on the 12th
                            and ended it at 12:00 on the

                        Fr. Carter celebrated Mass every Friday

                            after Mass and then had
                            benediction beginning about
                            5 minutes to 3:00.

                        We would like more priests to celebrate
                            Mass there.

                        Fr. Carter said it was so important
                            August 26, 1997 to celebrate Mass
                            there Jesus told him to go every
                            weekday for quite a while.

                        Then Fr. Carter went three times a week.

                        Then Fr. Carter was told by Jesus to go twice a week.

                        His last Mass was Mary's birthday September 8, 2000.

                            Father Carter celebrated his last
                            Mass in China, Indiana.

                         Here are two pictures I was told to take

Jesus speaks:  Come to Me, My little lamb. You are so dear to Me. I make this day for you to enjoy My air, hear the birds, see the glory in the autumn day with all its beautiful color. You are so favored. If I make this for you on earth to enjoy, how much more I will give you in heaven. I am the God of this universe. I am in everything I have created. I have given you all the little worms and all the leaves. I have given you all that you see that is in nature. I am such a good God and I love you so much. Trust in Me and know I never leave your side and I am present in all you do. But you must come and be filled by Me. I appreciate your sacrifices. The very hairs of your head are numbered. I make the crooked ways straight and I bless you in all your trials. Every day I sit and am attentive to all your cares, like the greatest lover. I watch by your side and I never slumber or sleep. I am there, watching you and guarding you and I tell you all the little promptings in your head. How would I know if I am not right with you always, guarding you from the trouble ahead? How many times I push a truck from your path. By all rights, you should be dead, but who knows how you and the truck did not crash in the same space. I do. I made you come out of it unharmed. I guarded you.

    I wait for you. I long for you. I am He Who never leaves you and never takes a vacation. I tell you all you need to know in your head. I am not talking to some and not to others. I am talking to all in the silence of their hearts. I do not love some of My children better than others. I love you all so much. I wait and wait for each child to come and when they stay away and hurt, I am most hurt. I am the giver of all good gifts, yet you go to empty wells for that which you need and never find except in Me. I am the Good Shepherd. I know Mine and Mine know Me and I make Myself attentive to all My sheep. Some wander and insist on staying away. I try to get them to come home but they must graze other lands. Their hearts ache and they wander in darkness, never feeling satisfied, always searching, always unsettled, but never finding that which is right before them.

    Oh children, I love you. You are lost and I seek you so diligently and you stay far from Me. You do not even speak My name. I am the Good Shepherd. You are little lost lambs. I want to hold you and caress you and take you to your home. I want you not to worry but to follow Me and you do your own things and are miserable inside. Come that you might have the life I give, life eternal, a life that is not even able to be understood by you, but is so much more than the most beautiful day. I watch. I wait. I never leave your side. You are little fearful lambs. What do you have to fear? Join My flock, feel My love, know My face and all I have to give you. You wander in a valley of darkness, ready to fall or bump your head or be really dumb, but you take the lumps and proceed on your willful little ways.

    All works out in My plan. I am the Good Shepherd. I love My sheep. I watch out for them. I tend My flock. I sit patiently by you and I prompt you on what you must do but you do not listen. You do your own will. You create your own problems. You do not sit quietly with Me. Please come. I am waiting. Be converted to My ways and you are fed. I am the Good Shepherd. Come, little scared sheep. Come to Me and be saved.

Messenger:     I am reminded of a vision I received years 
                           ago. There was a tiny fireman so tiny with 
                           a little fire hose and then there was a flame so
                           big about 100,000 times higher than the fireman
                           and the fire was against a dark night
                           and Jesus said no one can
                           put out the fire coming
                           from the Sacred Heart.

                        Keep working hard spreading
                            His love - don't
                            waste time
                            not doing what Jesus wants
                            us to do.

                        The fire of His love is beyond
                            anything we can imagine
                            and it will never 
                            be put out.

                        If God can heal cancer, we should 
                            realize that He can heal our hearts 
                            and mold them to do what He desires.


The Second Reading from Today's Mass

Romans 11: 33-36

A hymn to God’s mercy and wisdom

How rich and deep are the wisdom and the knowledge of God! We cannot reach to the root of his decisions or his ways. Who has ever known the mind of the Lord? Who has ever been his adviser? Who has given anything to him, so that his presents come only as a debt returned? Everything there is comes from him and is caused by him and exists for him. To him be glory for ever! Amen.
