Messenger:         Oh Jesus how sweet you are to us.
                            I must focus on the sweetness of Jesus.
                            I know Him in my heart.
                            I love Him so very much.
                            The days go by with such swiftness.
                            Today I went to a funeral.
                            Life is indeed very precious and very short.

                            Jesus says the Priestly Newsletter will 
                                impact the world.

                            10 years ago the Blue Books were published.
                                Some people were jealous or whatever
                                and wanted them stopped.

                            Fr. Carter discerned every word very
                                carefully several times.

Messenger:         He said the Blue Books were as much mine
                                as his.

                            He said Jesus told him to do all he could
                                to help me in this mission.

  

    

Promises of Our Lord to those devoted to His Sacred Heart
(these should be read by the prayer leader):

(1) I will give them all the graces necessary in their state of life.

(2) I will establish peace in their homes.

(3) I will comfort them in all their afflictions.

(4) I will be their refuge during life and above all in death.

(5) I will bestow a large blessing on all their undertakings.

(6) Sinners shall find in My Heart the source and the infinite ocean of mercy.

(7) Tepid souls shall grow fervent.

(8) Fervent souls shall quickly mount to high perfection.

(9) I will bless every place where a picture of My Heart shall be set up and honored.

(10) I will give to priests the gift of touching the most hardened hearts.

(11) Those who promote this devotion shall have their names written in My Heart, never to be blotted out.

(12) I promise you in the excessive mercy of My Heart that My all-powerful love will grant to all those who communicate on the first Friday in nine consecutive months the grace of final penitence; they shall not die in My disgrace nor without receiving their sacraments; My divine Heart shall be their safe refuge in this last moment.

Messenger:         Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

                            As I sit before the exposed Eucharist between
                                12:00 and 3:00 on Friday, I feel the peace
                                and comfort of being here with
                                Jesus, truly present in the Eucharist.

                            Over ten years now the Movement Shepherds of 
                                Christ has been in business.

October 1, 2004 message continues

Messenger:         In the Spirituality Handbook as given
                                to Fr. Carter by Jesus, the
                                prayer chapters 末 the associates
                                are asked to help finance the
                                Priestly Newsletter. This way
                                we are all praying together
                                in the prayers for the success
                                of the Priestly Newsletter and
                                contributing to it as associates,
                                apostles etc.

                            God asks us to do some things that seem
                                very difficult at times and we may
                                be asked to endure things that are
                                difficult. In doing so we can help
                                bring down great grace for the
                                priests, the Church and the world.

                            What does God ask of us?
                            How short is our life?
                            Do we see every day as trying to help
                                to build the Kingdom?

                                I was in the last hurricane Jeanne, before
                            it started we drove in its path over and back
                            across Florida praying and sprinkling holy
                            water.

                                I had settled on a Key on the west side of Florida
                            after this. The winds soon came on Sunday
                            September 26. Where I was, was up on the top floor
                            and the power went out. The steps were
                            dark and filled with water and all food
                            had stopped. I had gone to Mass Sunday
                            morning and it was so windy I could hardly
                            open the car door. The Church was almost
                            empty and it was so windy the Church
                            door didn't want to open. When I returned
                            from Church, the power went out. No food,
                            no reports about the hurricane, no
                            elevators.

                                This day was the day of the earthquake
                            that split the Fresno of St. Francis and St.
                            Clare in 1997. Three and 1/2 days before I
                            had gotten this message, 

  

September 22, 1997

Jesus speaks: "STIFF-NECKED, stiff-necked, stiff-necked. There will be a new heaven and a new earth. The old order will pass away. For they worshipped Me with their lips only and their hearts were far from Me.

I will rock the earth and bring the senseless men to their knees. They will learn to beg 銑AMB OF GOD, YOU TAKE AWAY THE SINS OF THE WORLD, HAVE MERCY ON US!"

Their thoughts are far from me....

I am the LAMB OF GOD. I AM THE BRIDEGROOM OF THEIR SOULS -- of a country of stiffs, naked in their ways, their hearts are haughty, for they persist in their same ways.

They are resistant to change. They refuse to go to the Heart of My Mother, yet she is their Mother and Mother of the Church.

Oh, to a world of stiff-necked.... I give you this message. Look at My Body on the cross, it was broken and mutilated, it was constrained, it was the picture of torment and twisting.

I speak through these messages and you continue in your stiff-necked ways. Would the destruction of your temples bring you to your knees? Or should I destroy My own houses? Or would they get the message anyway, if I burned them down?

(Messenger: On September 22, 1997, He said this. I suffered for several days.  Then the basillica in Assisi was destroyed.)

    

October 1, 2004 message continues

Messenger:         and Fr. Carter and I suffered for 3ス days. I
                            felt the anguish of World War II 末 the lost
                            lives and the messages of Mary at
                            Fatima deep in my heart and I received
                            the strong message above from Jesus on
                            September 22, 1997.

                                (September 22, 2000 was the day, 3 years
                            later they would open up Fr. Carter and find
                            out his body was full of cancer giving
                            him three months to live.)

                                Well it was now September 26, 2004 and
                            wind blew the tops of the palms
                            sideways as I watched the gulf look
                            so strong. The experience makes me want
                            to cry every time I think of it. It was
                            very scary watching it all. I haven't
                            written since because Our Lord did not
                            give me anything.

                                We finally drove in the hurricane to
                            evacuate and most of the street lights
                            were out 末 there were many wrecks because
                            of the darkness.

                                It was an experience. I realized that
                            I left many things behind because in
                            the darkness I could not see, one thing
                            was my cell phone and shoes and chargers
                            for the phones.

                                We went down 5 flights of stairs
                            while the hurricane raged with those
                            things we needed to take because the
                            stairs in the building were wet and
                            completely dark. The wind was ferrous.
                            When we arrived at a different location 末
                            the hurricane was just as strong there and
                            the cars were covered like cement from
                            the sand. All my credit cards blew across
                            the parking lot as I felt I would be
                            blown from my feet.

                                Well it was an experience. It seemed
                            I drove and prayed none to soon for the raging
                            hurricane hitting Florida so hard.

                                It seems as if a hand has squeezed
                            Florida like a wringing wash cloth
                            on all sides.

                                The last presidential election
                            was effected by Florida's vote.

                                What about the high jackers for
                            9-11-01 where some trained in Florida.

                                I remember the fires in Florida
                            raging and Fr. Carter went down and
                            consecrated the site and the world to the
                            Sacred Heart and Immaculate Heart.

   

Excerpt from June 18, 1998

Jesus speaks:  Oh please, My children, help Me for my wrath blazes above the buildings you have built and in one second I could destroy your earth with fire, but the Lady of Love (Mary) holds Me from you. But my hand is now raised and I do not act because of your prayers My holy ones.

Matthew 12: 38-42

Then some of the scribes and Pharisees spoke up. 閃aster, they said, 層e should like to see a sign from you. He replied, 選t is an evil and unfaithful generation that asks for a sign! The only sign it will be given is the sign of the prophet Jonah. For as Jonah remained in the belly of the sea-monster for three days and three nights, so will the Son of man be in the heart of the earth for three days and three nights. On Judgement Day the men of Nineveh will appear against this generation and they will be its condemnation, because when Jonah preached they repented; and look, there is something greater than Jonah here. On Judgement Day the Queen of the South will appear against this generation and be its condemnation, because she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and look, there is something greater than Solomon here.

Messenger:             Well on September 27, 2004 the gulf was calm 末
                            like a little baby 末 the sky was blue,
                            the wind barely blew.
                            It reminded me of a furious angry person
                            on Sunday and then the beach looked
                            like a seductive party 末
so beautiful,
                            so calm, so playful on Monday.

                                I will never forget this. The airports
                            were closed and when they were reopened
                             flights were all full for days. Our flight
                            on Tuesday was delayed 3 hours and all
                            others were full so we spent 5 hours
                            at the airport 末 wall to wall people. Not
                            a seat was open on the plane I was on.
                            There was no chance we could have left sooner.
                            I looked at Florida and it is surrounded
                            by water and we were stuck there.

                                Once I went into a tiny bathroom and
                            the door would not open. I was stuck
                            there until I got help. It was a closed in
                            feeling.

                            The Florida trip was like this.
                            The wind was ferrous.
                            Everything was closed.
                            There was no power where I was 末
                                no report on the hurricane.
                            I was up lots of wet dark stairs.

                                Today I went to the funeral and I thought
                            of how deeply I love people and maybe I will
                            never be able to tell them 末 but I assured
                            myself 末 my love, my prayers, my desire to
                            be good and good to others in this short life
                            is what is important.

                                I must quote a scripture here

    

Acts 9: 1-20

Meanwhile Saul was still breathing threats to slaughter the Lord's disciples. He went to the high priest and asked for letters addressed to the synagogues in Damascus, that would authorise him to arrest and take to Jerusalem any followers of the Way, men or women, that he might find.

It happened that while he was travelling to Damascus and approaching the city, suddenly a light from heaven shone all round him. He fell to the ground, and then he heard a voice saying, 'Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting me?' 'Who are you, Lord?' he asked, and the answer came, 'I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting. Get up and go into the city, and you will be told what you are to do.' The men travelling with Saul stood there speechless, for though they heard the voice they could see no one. Saul got up from the ground, but when he opened his eyes he could see nothing at all, and they had to lead him into Damascus by the hand. For three days he was without his sight and took neither food nor drink.

There was a disciple in Damascus called Ananias, and he had a vision in which the Lord said to him, 'Ananias!' When he replied, 'Here I am, Lord,' the Lord said, 'Get up and go to Straight Street and ask at the house of Judas for someone called Saul, who comes from Tarsus. At this moment he is praying, and has seen a man called Ananias coming in and laying hands on him to give him back his sight.'

But in response, Ananias said, 'Lord, I have heard from many people about this man and all the harm he has been doing to your holy people in Jerusalem. He has come here with a warrant from the chief priests to arrest everybody who invokes your name.' The Lord replied, 'Go, for this man is my chosen instrument to bring my name before gentiles and kings and before the people of Israel; I myself will show him how much he must suffer for my name.' Then Ananias went. He entered the house, and laid his hands on Saul and said, 'Brother Saul, I have been sent by the Lord Jesus, who appeared to you on your way here, so that you may recover your sight and be filled with the Holy Spirit.' It was as though scales fell away from his eyes and immediately he was able to see again. So he got up and was baptised, and after taking some food he regained his strength.

After he had spent only a few days with the disciples in Damascus, he began preaching in the synagogues, 'Jesus is the Son of God.' 

   

       

John 6: 52-59  

Then the Jews started arguing among themselves, 'How can this man give us his flesh to eat?' Jesus replied to them:

In all truth I tell you,
if you do not eat
   the flesh of the Son of man
and drink his blood,
you have no life in you.
Anyone who does eat my flesh
   and drink my blood
has eternal life,
and I shall raise that person up
   on the last day.
For my flesh is real food
and my blood is real drink.
Whoever eats my flesh
   and drinks my blood
lives in me
and I live in that person.
As the living Father sent me
and I draw life from the Father,
so whoever eats me
   will also draw life from me.
This is the bread
   which has come down from heaven;
it is not like the bread our ancestors ate:
they are dead,
but anyone who eats this bread
   will live for ever.

This is what he taught at Capernaum in the synagogue.

Messenger:             How blind are we to not recognize
                                    the gift of the Eucharist?

  

  

October 1, 2004 message continues

Messenger:         Oh God open our eyes that we will see.

                            Right before the Good Shepherd scripture
                                in John is the blind man.

    

John 9: 1-40

As he went along, he saw a man who had been blind from birth. His disciples asked him, 然abbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he should have been born blind? 鮮either he nor his parents sinned, Jesus answered, 蘇e was born blind so that the works of God might be revealed in him.

'As long as day lasts
we must carry out the work of the one
  who sent me;
the night will soon be here
   when no one can work.
As long as I am in the world
I am the light of the world.

    Having said this, he spat on the ground, made a paste with the spittle, put this over the eyes of the blind man, and said to him, 賎o and wash in the Pool of Siloam (the name means 双ne who has been sent). So he went off and washed and came back able to see.

    His neighbours and the people who used to see him before (for he was a beggar) said, 選sn稚 this the man who used to sit and beg? Some said, 塑es, it is the same one.' Others said, 'No, but he looks just like him. The man himself said, 塑es, I am the one. So they said to him, 禅hen how is it that your eyes were opened?' He answered, 禅he man called Jesus made a paste, daubed my eyes with it and said to me, "Go off and wash at Siloam"; so I went, and when I washed I gained my sight. They asked, 糎here is he? He answered, 選 don稚 know.

    They brought to the Pharisees the man who had been blind. It had been a Sabbath day when Jesus made the paste and opened the man痴 eyes, so when the Pharisees asked him how he had gained his sight, he said, 践e put a paste on my eyes, and I washed, and I can see.' Then some of the Pharisees said, 禅hat man cannot be from God: he does not keep the Sabbath. Others said, 践ow can a sinner produce signs like this?' And there was division among them. So they spoke to the blind man again, 'What have you to say about him yourself, now that he has opened your eyes? The man answered, 践e is a prophet.

    However, the Jews would not believe that the man had been blind without first sending for the parents of the man who had gained his sight and asking them, 選s this man really the son of yours who you say was born blind? If so, how is it that he is now able to see? His parents answered, 糎e know he is our son and we know he was born blind, but how he can see, we don稚 know, nor who opened his eyes. Ask him. He is old enough: let him speak for himself. His parents spoke like this out of fear of the Jews, who had already agreed to ban from the synagogue anyone who should acknowledge Jesus as the Christ. This was why his parents said, 践e is old enough; ask him.'

    So the Jews sent for the man again and said to him, 賎ive glory to God! We are satisfied that this man is a sinner. The man answered, 糎hether he is a sinner I don稚 know; all I know is that I was blind and now I can see. They said to him, 糎hat did he do to you? How did he open your eyes? He replied, 選 have told you once and you wouldn稚 listen. Why do you want to hear it all again? Do you want to become his disciples yourselves? At this they hurled abuse at him, 選t is you who are his disciple, we are disciples of Moses; we know that God spoke to Moses, but as for this man, we don稚 know where he comes from. The man replied, 禅hat is just what is so amazing! You don稚 know where he comes from and he has opened my eyes! We know that God doesn稚 listen to sinners, but God does listen to people who are devout and do his will. Ever since the world began it is unheard of for anyone to open the eyes of someone born blind; if this man were not from God, he wouldn稚 have been able to do anything. They retorted, 羨re you trying to teach us, and you a sinner through and through ever since you were born!' And they ejected him.

    Jesus heard they had ejected him, and when he found him he said to him, 船o you believe in the Son of man? 全ir, the man replied, 奏ell me who he is so that I may believe in him. Jesus said, 塑ou have seen him; he is speaking to you. The man said, 銑ord, I believe, and worshipped him.
                    Jesus said:

It is for judgement
that I have come into this world,
so that those without sight may see
and those with sight may become blind.

    Hearing this, some Pharisees who were present said to him, 全o we are blind, are we? Jesus replied:

If you were blind,
you would not be guilty,
but since you say, 糎e can see,
your guilt remains.

      

John 10: 1-19

選n all truth I tell you, anyone who does not enter the sheepfold through the gate, but climbs in some other way, is a thief and a bandit. He who enters through the gate is the shepherd of the flock; the gate-keeper lets him in, the sheep hear his voice, one by one he calls his own sheep and leads them out. When he has brought out all those that are his, he goes ahead of them, and the sheep follow because they know his voice. They will never follow a stranger, but will run away from him because they do not recognise the voice of strangers.
Jesus told them this parable but they failed to understand what he was saying to them.
        So Jesus spoke to them again:

In all truth I tell you,
I am the gate of the sheepfold.
All who have come before me
are thieves and bandits,
but the sheep took no notice of them.
I am the gate.
Anyone who enters through me
   will be safe"
such a one will go in and out
and will find pasture.
The thief comes
only to steal and kill and destroy.
I have come
so that they may have life
and have it to the full.
I am the good shepherd:
the good shepherd lays down his life
   for his sheep.
The hired man,
   since he is not the shepherd
and the sheep do not belong to him,
abandons the sheep
as soon as he sees a wolf coming,
   and runs away,
and then the wolf attacks
   and scatters the sheep;
he runs away
  because he is only a hired man
and has no concern for the sheep.
I am the good shepherd;
I know my own
and my own know me,
just as the Father knows me
and I know the Father;
and I lay down my life for my sheep.
And there are other sheep I have
that are not of this fold,
and I must lead these too.
They too will listen to my voice,
and there will be only one flock,
one shepherd.
The Father loves me,
because I lay down my life
in order to take it up again.
No one takes it from me;
I lay it down of my own free will,
and as I have power to lay it down,
so I have power to take it up again;
and this is the command
   I have received from my Father.

These words caused a fresh division among the Jews.

  

Acts 9: 31-42  

The churches throughout Judaea, Galilee and Samaria were now left in peace, building themselves up and living in the fear of the Lord; encouraged by the Holy Spirit, they continued to grow.

It happened that Peter visited one place after another and eventually came to God痴 holy people living down in Lydda. There he found a man called Aeneas, a paralytic who had been bedridden for eight years. Peter said to him, 羨eneas, Jesus Christ cures you: get up and make your bed. Aeneas got up immediately; everybody who lived in Lydda and Sharon saw him, and they were converted to the Lord.

At Jaffa there was a disciple called Tabitha, or in Greek, Dorcas, who never tired of doing good or giving to those in need. But it happened that at this time she became ill and died, and they washed her and laid her out in an upper room. Lydda is not far from Jaffa, so when the disciples heard that Peter was there, they sent two men to urge him, 舛ome to us without delay.

    Peter went back with them immediately, and on his arrival they took him to the upper room, where all the widows stood round him in tears, showing him tunics and other clothes Dorcas had made when she was with them. Peter sent everyone out of the room and knelt down and prayed. Then he turned to the dead woman and said, 禅abitha, stand up. She opened her eyes, looked at Peter and sat up. Peter helped her to her feet, then he called in the members of the congregation and widows and showed them she was alive. The whole of Jaffa heard about it and many believed in the Lord.

Messenger:         Do we know the real meaning of life 末
                            That life is in Him.

   

John 6: 60-69 

After hearing it, many of his followers said, 禅his is intolerable language. How could anyone accept it? Jesus was aware that his followers were complaining about it and said, 船oes this disturb you? What if you should see the Son of man ascend to where he was before? 選t is the spirit that gives life, the flesh has nothing to offer. The words I have spoken to you are spirit and they are life. 腺ut there are some of you who do not believe. For Jesus knew from the outset who did not believe and who was to betray him. He went on, 禅his is why I told you that no one could come to me except by the gift of the Father. After this, many of his disciples went away and accompanied him no more.

Then Jesus said to the Twelve, 糎hat about you, do you want to go away too? Simon Peter answered, 銑ord, to whom shall we go? You have the message of eternal life, and we believe; we have come to know that you are the Holy One of God.

Excerpt from the Spirituality of Fatima
by Father Edward Carter, S.J.
 

October 13, 1917

    On October 13, 1917, there were more than 70,000 people gathered in the Cova da Iria in Fatima, Portugal. They had come to observe a miracle which had been foretold by the Blessed Virgin to three young visionaries: Lucia dos Santos, and her two cousins, Jacinta and Francisco Marto. (1) Shortly after noon, Our Lady appeared to the three visionaries:

    As the Lady was about to leave, she pointed to the sun. Lucy excitedly repeated the gesture, and the people looked into the sky. The rain had ceased, the clouds parted, and the sun shone forth, but not in its usual brilliance. Instead, it appeared like a silver disc, pale as the moon, at which all could gaze without straining their eyes. Suddenly, impelled by some mysterious force, the disc began to whirl in the sky, casting off great shafts of multicolored light. Red, green, blue, yellow, violet葉he enormous rays shot across the sky at all angles, lighting up the entire countryside for many miles around, but particularly the upturned faces of those 70,000 spellbound people.

    After a few moments the wonder stopped, but resumed again a second and a third time葉hree times in all謡ithin about 12 minutes. It seemed that the whole world was on fire, with the sun spinning at a greater speed each time.

    Then a gasp of terror rose from the crowd, for the sun seemed to tear itself from the heavens and come crashing down upon the horrified multitude.... Just when it seemed that the ball of fire would fall upon and destroy them, the miracle ceased, and the sun resumed its normal place in the sky, shining forth as peacefully as ever.

    When the people arose from the ground, cries of astonishment were heard on all sides. Their clothes, which had been soaking wet and muddy, now were clean and dry. Many of the sick and crippled had been cured of their afflictions. (2)

Rosaries from the
Hearts of Jesus and Mary

This rosary was received on Sunday, October the 13th, 1996 at a International Shepherds of Christ Associates Meeting at Tom Arlinghaus's farm in Kentucky. The rosary was led by Fr. Edward J. Carter S.J., spiritual director of Shepherds of Christ Ministries. The meditations and messages were given to Rita Ring during the rosary. This rosary was received live and transcribed from the recording. This live recording can be obtained by writing Shepherds of Christ Publications. All of these meditations have been discerned by Fr. Edward J. Carter S.J.

THE GLORIOUS MYSTERIES

The Resurrection

  1. Jesus has told us how He is the vine and we are the branches. We must stay rooted in Him so that His life flows through us. We cannot become disconnected from the vine. We are one, joined with Him.
  2. Hail Mary...
  3. Jesus speaks:
    I am calling you, My special apostles, to this farm on this day of October 13th, 1996. I will fill your hearts with the fire of My love, and the fire of this love will spread across the earth and many hearts will know My love and be touched through you. Open wide your heart during this rosary that I may speak to you and tell you of My burning love for you. I am giving to you an abundant sharing in My life. Open your heart. I am knocking at the door of your heart. You must not close your heart. Open wide that I can come in and fill you with My divine love.
  4. Oh, My beloved Jesus, I see You glistening and covered in white. I know that You rose on the third day and that there is such glory in the resurrection. My life is a constant death and resurrection as I live in You.
  5. Focus on the body of a man hanging on the cross. You see this vividly before your eyes-a man covered with blood, His head crowned with thorns. He is beaten and withered. This is the Almighty God, Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who came and gave Himself for love of us. Focus on this picture in your mind. Make it so clear as if you were there, as if you are seeing this with your eyes, at this moment, this man on the cross, with flesh covered with blood. Jesus died. He was locked in a tomb for three days. Now see next to this picture of this man the glorified body of Jesus, His glorified wounds, as He comes forth from the tomb. The Almighty God, our beloved and loving Jesus-He is alive, He is with us this day. He lives in us in a special way. When we are baptized and in the state of grace, God is alive within us and He shares with us His divine life. We are Christ to one another for He is alive in us.
    When I talk to you, I am seeing the Jesus that is alive inside of you. We are all gathered as one body. We see Jesus. We see Him dead on the cross. This is how much that He loved us. Do we not know that He died for us because of this great love, that He wants us to be one body? I see the vine and the branches and I see how they are so connected that the life and the fluid runs through the vine to the branches-it's all one. We are one in Him. He has given us a sharing in His divine life. Look at us, how separate we are with each other, how we hold ourselves at arm's length and separate ourselves from one another. We are called in the Shepherds of Christ Movement to be one flock with one shepherd.
    The Almighty God is alive and He lives in us. I went to Mass and Communion this morning and I received the Body of Christ; you receive the Body of Christ. He gives to us His life. He gives to us Himself. We must strive in this Movement to be one, to live this consecration in our lives that we are one with each other, that we put aside all of the tauntings by the devil to divide us, that we realize that division is from Satan. As we march across this United States and this world, we will carry the fire of His love, alive inside of us, for He is alive and He lives within our hearts. We are called to this special mission as His apostles to carry this message, this message of His love to the world.
    Oh, Jesus, how tenderly I love you. You are alive in my very being. You are all that I live for and I want to carry this message out to the world for you have delivered this message with such love. You are so good. Fill our hearts with the fire of Your love and give us Your abundant grace that we will have the courage to carry this message to the ends of the earth. And there was darkness. I see the darkness in the night, but the light steals across the sky and the fire of His love spreads across this earth as His life lives in us and many are touched by the fire of His love.
    Song: Spirit Song
  6. We are not like the world, we see this world and it is Godless. In many cases the world has turned away from God. It is at Fatima that Mary said that we must stop offending God. She has given to us the peace plan that we will have peace on this earth-it is in consecrating our hearts. She said until a sufficient number have consecrated their hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary we will not have peace in the world. She said we must pray the rosary, that we must observe the First Saturday devotion, that we must make reparation to Their Hearts. Why-why do we not do what Mary is asking us to do. It is so simple?
  7. Mary appeared at Fatima in July, 1917 and she told the children, "You have seen hell, where the souls of poor sinners go. To save them God wishes to establish in the world devotion to my Immaculate Heart. If people do what I tell you, many souls will be saved and there will be peace. The war (World War I then raging) is going to end, but if people do not stop offending God, another and worse one will begin in the reign of Pius XI. When you shall see a night illuminated by an unknown light (January 2, 1938) know that this is a great sign that God gives you that He is going to punish the world for its many crimes by means of war, hunger and persecution of the Church and the Holy Father."1
    Mary has appeared to me, almost every day from July the 5th of 1994 until September the 5th of 1995-14 months-this same cry that came from our Heavenly Mother at Fatima, that we must quit offending God, that we must do what she is telling us to do. This is the peace plan. He is alive and He lives in us. We are being asked to go into the world and to spread His love to the far corners of the earth.
  8. He gives to us His life in the Eucharist. Who are we that the Almighty God gives to us, human persons, a sharing in His Divine Life. He is treated with such indifference and such neglect. If we knew, if we could see, the glories of the Almighty God, but we are so blind in our sight. We do not see and we do not hear. We must pray for the grace that we will see, that we will be the apostles that He is calling to carry this message out to the world.
  9. He rose from the dead and He appeared to the apostles. We see Thomas-he did not believe. How are we this day? Do we believe? The Almighty God is truly present in His Divinity and humanity in the Holy Eucharist and He is outpouring His grace, His life to us. Do we believe? Do we believe that He is truly present and that He is giving Himself to us this day? He is here! He is truly present in the Eucharist and He is alive in our hearts!
  10. He laments and laments how He is treated as a dead object. He is ignored in the Tabernacle.
    The Almighty God is here. We spend all this money and go to concerts, go to football games, all this time in recreation and the Almighty God is ignored. Mary appeared in 1917 and said that we must stop offending God. Look at our world. He has called us in the Shepherds of Christ Movement and is giving to us abundant grace that we will grow more and more in our relationship with Him and we will be His leaders going into this world carrying the fire of His love to the far corners of the earth.
    He is alive. He says, I am the Way, the Truth and the Life and I am with you this day. Open your eyes and see. Open your hearts and live for I AM the Way, the Truth and the Life.

Our Lord Ascends Into Heaven

  1. He took His apostles out to the place of His Ascension and He raised His arms and He ascended into heaven. Do we see the glories of these mysteries, that the Almighty God rose from the dead, that He ascended into heaven? We do not see the glory. We are so focused on the details in our lives. We see with such limited vision. The Almighty God is alive and He is here and He is calling us. Each one of us has been called to this farm, this day, for He knew you would answer this calling. He knew that in your heart you want the deepest love affair with Him, that you want to be one with Him. He has called you as His apostles to carry out His love to the world, to light up the darkness with His life alive within us.
  2. We look out and we see the beauty of this day, with the sun in the sky and the light, and all the colors in the trees. We see the life in each blade of grass and in each leaf on the tree and tonight the darkness will cover this earth and although the trees and the leaves are still there, and this beautiful river, we will not be able to see with this clarity. The earth this day is covered with darkness for many souls have cut themselves off from the vine. They are withering and dying in their hearts. He is calling us and giving us abundant grace that we will be one in Him, that He will live in us, and as we live on this earth, He will touch others through us. This is a tremendous calling from the Almighty God-that we have been chosen and called and given this grace to be so close to Him.
  3. Song: A Song From Jesus
  4. Song: Little Child
  5. Hail Mary...
  6. On Ascension Thursday, 1995, I went through such an experience. First, Jesus took me to the height of heaven and I experienced such ecstasy. I was at church and later that day when I went home I was given great anguish and suffering and He called out, "I am alive, I am alive, I am alive!" and He said that He wanted Fr. Carter in the Shepherds of Christ Movement to reach the souls on this earth with the fire of His love. It was in such pain and suffering that I was buckled over and hearing the Almighty God call out, "I am alive, I am alive, I am alive". How do we treat Jesus? Do we treat Him as if He is alive? Do we love Him with all our heart, our whole soul and our whole being? Do you hear the laments of our beloved Savior, the Almighty God, who gave Himself and died on the cross? He is alive. He wants this burning love affair with us. Many of the Masses, many of our prayers, are said with lack of emotion in our hearts. He wants us to love Him with the deepest burning love, not to go through the motions. Every prayer is a love affair with our beloved Savior. The Rosary we sing-(the Rosary song), and He wants us to say from our heart, the bottom of our heart, "Jesus, we love You. Mary, we love you. Oh, the Rosary, the Rosary, is the love of Their Two Hearts. Oh the Rosary, the Rosary, is the love of Their Two Hearts."
    In the September 10th rosary that we circulated to you, Jesus laments how He does not receive a drop of heartfelt love from many of His beloved religious that He has chosen and loves so much. This is why He has called us in the Shepherds of Christ Movement, to pray, to pray for His beloved religious. He loves them so much and He wants, He wants this burning love from them, His chosen ones. We are gathered here for this reason-to realize that the Almighty God really is talking to us, that He has called us, that this is an important mission, that we need to pray so fervently for our priests and our religious, that this is His instrument, the Shepherds of Christ Movement, to help in the renewal of the Church and the world.
  7. Jesus speaks:
    I am alive, I am alive, I am alive, and I live in your heart. Open your heart and let Me come inside of you. I want to touch My beloved souls this day. Will you say "yes" to this calling? Will you go to the ends of the earth and spread this movement? Will you pray, pray fervently for this intention: to lead the religious to the fires of love, found in My Most Sacred Heart?
  8. Song: Spirit Song
    Jesus speaks:
    I am alive, I am alive, I am alive, and I live in your hearts.
    Response:
    Jesus no longer walks this earth, but He is alive and He lives in us.
  9. Song: "Come Unto Me All Who Are Weary.."
    Jesus speaks:
    I am alive, I am alive, I am alive, and I am the Almighty God, all powerful. You see with such limited vision. You must surrender and let go and let Me run your life. You are holding on, My beloved ones. You must realize that I am all powerful, all mighty, and that I am guarding you and I am with you in a special way this day.
  10. Jesus speaks:
    Carry My light into the darkness.
    Response:
    And the light came across the dark sky and many were touched with the fire of His love.
    Because you answered this call, the call to be His apostle, to pray for the priests, to help spread the consecration as Our Lady has asked us at Fatima. We will not have peace in the world until our hearts are filled with love, and she says until a sufficient number have consecrated their hearts to the hearts of Jesus and Mary, we will not have peace. This is the good news. As the Movement spreads across this earth, as hearts are consecrated to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, we will have the peace that Our Lady has promised at Fatima but we must do as she has told us to do. We must consecrate our hearts and spread this to the world. We must pray the rosary, observe the First Saturday devotion, and make reparation to Their Hearts.

The Descent of the Holy Spirit Upon the Apostles

  1. "When Pentecost day came round, they had all met together, when suddenly there came from heaven a sound as of a violent wind which filled the entire house in which they were sitting; and there appeared to them tongues as of fire; these separated and came to rest on the head of each of them. They were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak different languages as the Spirit gave them power to express themselves." (Acts 2: 1-4)2
  2. Jesus speaks:
    I call you, I call you, I call you, My beloved apostles. I call you to go out to the ends of the earth and to preach My love. I am longing and thirsting for My beloved souls to come to Me. Bring to Me the souls, the souls I love. I am Jesus, do you hear this call? Will you bring to Me the souls of My loved ones? Will you pray for the priests and the religious, for it is through them that I will feed the hungry souls?
    Response:
    Look at the priest, see the priest in the Mass, the priest that consecrates the bread and wine into the Body and Blood of Christ. He gives to us the Body and Blood of Christ. See Jesus in the priest, giving us His Body. Each one of us go to the communion rail and God gives to us Himself. We are one in Him. Jesus has told me how we sit in church, like stiffs, all separate, going through the motions. This is not love! He wants heartfelt love in our hearts, to realize that the Almighty God, in the greatest act of love gave Himself as a sacrifice on the cross and this sacrifice is sacramentally made present in every Mass. The Mass is a love affair with God. The deepest union with Him is to give ourselves to Mary, for we are sinners. She is the pure and sinless one. We give ourselves to Mary and we go to Him in her pure and sinless heart, to the very depth of His Heart.
    He is alive and we are the apostles that must carry this life into the world in our hearts. He is operating through us. Will we say "yes"? Do we see the world, do we see the suffering children, do we see the babies that are murdered in the wombs of their mother, do we see what the children are being fed on television..but we hold back our tongues about the love of God? When I began to receive these messages, for six weeks before, constantly I heard, "Feed the hungry, feed the hungry!" I prayed and I prayed and I prayed to know His will. In September of 1991, He called out to me, for six weeks, constantly, " Feed the hungry!" The world is starving for the love of God! Let us feed the hungry with this love of God. Let us pray for the priests for He gives us them.
  3. We encounter Christ through the sacraments. His life is outpoured in the Mass. Grace is outpoured in part according to the disposition of the person offering sacrifice. As we become one in Their Hearts, as the priest becomes one in Their Hearts, consecrated to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, an immense amount of grace is released on the earth. It is through this that many souls will know God, that many souls will be saved. We help in the act of redemption. We must spread this Movement to the far corners of the earth. It is as Mary said: we must consecrate our hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. This is the key-Mary's heart is the gateway to going to the deepest chamber of the Heart of Christ.
  4. We see how Peter denied Christ. We see how the apostles were afraid. We see Thomas did not believe. We see them stumble and fall and run away, and then we see them, after the Holy Spirit descended upon them. They went out into the world and thousands were converted. They were filled with the fire of God's love. Let us, God, be filled with the fire of Your love.
    Dear Holy Spirit, give us this fearlessness to go into this darkened world and to carry the light, to carry the messages of Your burning love to the souls that are starving and are longing to be fed.
  5. Song: Lady of Fatima
    Jesus speaks:
    I am alive, I am alive, I am alive, and I live in you. Open your heart that I may touch so many of My beloved souls through you. I am Jesus. Will you say "yes", My beloved apostles?
  6. Look into the eyes of the children that are suffering this day. Mary has sent us on a special mission to spread the rosaries and the consecration to the children in the schools. Do you see the children, the children in the schools today that are hard in their hearts, the children that are suffering, that do not know the love of God? Mary is giving us special help to spread these rosaries in the schools. She wants this all over the United States. For nine months Mary asked me to spread the rosary and the consecration to the children. We are the apostles that He is sending into the world this day. This is what Mary and Jesus are asking us to do. It is so little-to spread these rosaries and consecrations to the schools, but Mary said at Fatima we will not have peace in the world until we do what she has told us to do. The Shepherds of Christ Movement is a great part of the completion of the Fatima message. These rosaries are a big part of the completion of the Fatima message. We must carry these rosaries to our children in the schools.
  7. Satan presses down on us and tries to stop us. The pressure that has gone on just to have this today is unbelievable, how Satan can try to stop this. Look at the Fatima message, how it has been blocked. Why, why, why are not we paying attention to this Fatima message that Mary gave in 1917? It is the devil that has blocked this message. This is a major part of the completion of the Fatima message so we will be met with such resistance. Jesus, Jesus wants us to bring Him souls. So many souls would be saved through the First Saturday devotion. Why, why do we not talk about the Fatima message like we should-about praying the rosary and consecrating our hearts, and the First Saturday devotion, and making reparation to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary? It is so simple but the devil has blocked this. If we want peace we should do what Mary has told us for she is the Queen of Peace and the peace of the world has been entrusted to her. We are the apostles. We are being sent into the world to carry this message.
  8. Hail Mary...
  9. Hail Mary...
  10. Hail Mary...

The Assumption of Our Lady Into Heaven

  1. We see Mary taken body and soul into heaven. We live here, we struggle everyday with so many struggles. We are so focused on the daily events. We do not realize that soon we too will go to heaven, if we love and serve the Lord, if we love and serve God. The world has turned Godless to a large degree. Mary appeared to me every day, except for a few days, for fourteen months and begged and pleaded that we spread the love of her Son to this world, that we spread these rosaries to the world, that we go to the children with the rosaries and the consecrations. It is so hard to see our heavenly Mother and to know what she is saying and to not do more. Jesus and Mary have called you here this day. You have been chosen by them. This is the message that they wish to deliver to you, that many souls are suffering and going to hell. Over and over again I heard Our Lady call out, "Please, please the souls are dropping into hell like rain. You must go out to the world and spread the love of my Son."
  2. On October 13th, Mary said, "I am the Lady of the Rosary. I have come to warn the faithful to amend their lives and to ask pardon for their sins. They must not offend Our Lord anymore for He is already too grievously offended by the sins of men. People must say the rosary. Let them continue saying it every day."3 This is a great gift that God has given to us-rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. For in the rosary this week Jesus said that the times ahead will be very dark and unless we discipline our minds by praying the rosary all through the day, it will be very hard for us when these dark days come. Mary is our heavenly Mother. She was taken into heaven but she is very much with us. She has told us what we must do. We must pray the rosary. She is our heavenly Mother. As a mother that tells a child what to eat and how to dress, Mary is telling us this: that we must try to pray l5 decades of the rosary every day for the times ahead will be dark and we need to have disciplined thoughts. In praying the rosary, our thoughts become disciplined. We are meditating on the lives of Jesus and Mary.
  3. Hail Mary...
  4. I saw a documentary on Fatima and in this documentary, Mary appeared to the three children and then they showed the events of World War II. The bodies were being thrown on a heap. And it just about tore my insides apart because I identified so much with watching Mary appear and then nobody listened or not a lot of people listened and World War II happened and so many people were killed. John brought a statue and asked me to read this, "One day during World War II, a group of soldiers wondered into a small French village which had been badly bombed. They stood in the village square and looked at the desolation around them. Nearly everything seemed battered and broken. Suddenly, one of the soldiers noticed something interesting close by on the ground. It looked like a statue. There were cracks and chips in it and several pieces were missing. It was badly damaged. A few of the soldiers stood it up right. Immediately they knew that it was a statue of Jesus. The men began to look for the missing parts. They put them together as best as they could and then they set the statue on a pedestal that was still standing, but the hands were missing. The men looked very carefully for the hands, but they were no where to be found. When the men were about to give up, one of them said he knew exactly what to do. He made a rough sign and hung it over the arms of the statue. The sign read, 'I have no hands but yours.'"
  5. Jesus gave me a message that we are His hands and we are His Heart beating in this world. We must truly be real lovers, lovers living in this world loving one another, one with each other. It is in going to the pure heart of Mary, that we will unite in this deep love affair with Jesus.
  6. Jesus speaks:
    You are My hands. You are My Heart beating in this world. My beloved apostles, will you say "yes"? Will you go into the world? Will you carry my light in the darkness? Will you tell the children who are suffering how I love them? Will you go to the nursing homes and tell the elderly how I am longing to be with them, to talk to them, to hear the words from their lips that they love Me? You are My apostles of love.
    Response:
    This is the anniversary of the sixth apparition at Fatima. Mary appeared every day for fourteen months to me and delivered these rosaries. That is all she kept saying: that we must lead others to the love of her Son, Jesus. The message is so simple. It is love God and love one another. All the fanciness and the frills! Why can we not live this message which is the message of love God and love each other.
  7. We are so focused on the things of this earth and our heavenly Mother has appeared so many times and told us what we must do-she made it so clear at Fatima. Do we think our Blessed Mother will change, that she will change her peace plan? We must, we must carry this message into the world. We must do what Jesus and Mary are asking us to do.
  8. Hail Mary...
  9. Hail Mary...
  10. Hail Mary...

The Coronation of Our Lady

  1. Mary speaks:
    I am Our Lady of the Holy Rosary. I am asking you this day to carry these rosaries into this world. It is through the rosary that you will have peace in your hearts. My little children, you must learn to discipline your thoughts. You must come to Our Hearts and meditate on Our lives. Our lives will live in your life as you meditate on the mysteries of the rosary.
  2. Mary speaks:
    There is a time, a time of struggle. There is a time of joy. There is a time when the Sacred Heart of Jesus will reign. The time for these things is near at hand. My little children, I have called you on this October 13th, 1996. I have called you to go into this world and to carry the rosary as your weapon against Satan. It is through the rosary and the scapular that I will save this world. I am Mary, your Mother. I am Our Lady of the Holy Rosary.
  3. We see the angel appear to Mary and ask her to be the Mother of God. This is the Father's plan-that Mary would be the Mother of God, and we see Mary as crowned Queen of Heaven and Earth. Do we see the plan of the Father unfold in our lives? That our lives are so important to help in the salvation of many? That He is truly calling us to be apostles to carry His love, His light, into the dark world?
  4. Jesus speaks:
    I am with you in a special way, My beloved apostles. I am calling you this day. This is an urgent call. You must go into the world and carry My messages of love to the souls that are hungry and suffering and in pain.
  5. Think vividly of the moment of death. There is a soul at this moment on the edge of death. How did they live their life? Think of the world today. Is the world living according to the way that God has told us that we must live? He told us that we must love God and love one another. There is a soul at this moment on the edge of death. Where will this soul go? Did the soul love God? Did it matter about his clothes and his house and all his riches? I heard Mary, Our Mother, call out time and time and time again about the souls that were going into hell. It is like the Fatima documentary-she called and people did not heed what she said and there was World War II. Mary does not appear as she once appeared and she has ceased giving messages as she once did. She still gives messages but they are not as many. She says that we are not listening to the messages that she has given and that she cannot hold back the hand of her Son any longer.
  6. This is the good news: if we do what Mary tells us at Fatima, we will have peace. There will be the reign of the Sacred Heart and the triumph of her Immaculate Heart in which souls will fervently love Jesus with the greatest love. Her plan is so simple but Satan has blocked this plan. Satan has blocked these rosary messages and meditations. We must pray that we can circulate the messages of Jesus and Mary to the world that is hungry and in need of help.
  7. One day soon we will be with God in heaven, forever and ever.
  8. Wrapped in the embrace of the Almighty God for all eternity. Heaven is a place of love for the Almighty God is love. We will be satisfied. We will know love. We will be at peace.
    But, hell is a place where there is no love, there is no community, there is isolation, there is longing for God for all eternity.
    He is alive, He is alive and He is with us this day. You must spread this message to the ends of the earth.
  9. Mary speaks:
    My little children, I call you children because you are My children, willful in your ways. I have called to you to pray My rosary and to spread the rosary to the hurting children in this world. I am asking you on this special day that you carry the rosary to as many souls as possible. I will aid you in all efforts to spread the rosaries to the world. Read these meditations to the elderly in the Nursing Homes, teach them about the power of the rosary, bring the rosary to the children, tell them about our lives, about our love for them.
    I am Mary, your Mother, I am Our Lady of the Holy Rosary.
  10. Song: The Rosary

Ending Message:

Jesus speaks:
How tenderly I love you, My beloved ones. I am Jesus. I have called you this day for this special meeting. I have called you, My apostles. Will you go into the darkness? Will you spread the message of My love? Will you carry the rosary into the world? Will you touch the hearts of those that are hurting and in pain? Will you be My apostles of love? I am calling you to love God and to love one another, to be one in your hearts, to put aside all hatred and bitterness within your heart, to not give into the tauntings of Satan to divide you, to always operate in love, to focus on God. Let your hearts be filled with love.

Glory be...

"My dear friends, let us love each other, since love is from God and everyone who loves is a child of God and knows God. Whoever fails to love does not know God, because God is love." (1 John 4: 7-8)4

Message of October 5, 1995

Sorrowful Mother Statue at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center

Mary speaks: I am Mary, your Mother. This is an urgent call to you at the Center and the Shepherds of Christ Movement. I have appeared as Our Lady of Light for 14 months daily at the Center. I have given to you special rosaries to be circulated among the youth and for all of your devout souls to be drawn closer to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. These rosaries are an important part of the fulfillment of Fatima.

    I have called a special rosary on the 5th of each month in honor of the 5 wounds suffered by my Son and the 5 blasphemies suffered to my Immaculate Heart. I have called and called for all to follow the promises given at Fatima for those who honor my request to pray on the First Saturday of the month. I am calling out an urgent plea to answer my call. I have appeared from April 5th, until September 5th, at the Center, six appearances. The first rosary received in the Sorrowful Mother Chapel was March 17th, a very important rosary, received before the exposed Eucharist. I requested the rosary be prayed in the presence of the tabernacle. On March 21, 1995, a special rosary was prayed before the Pieta at the Shepherds of Christ meeting. Many of my children saw events at that rosary. On March 30, 1995, I came in a special way, the corner was filled with a tinted film and I was adorned in such light and alive. At this time I requested the rosary be prayed in the Sorrowful Mother Chapel. The rosary was prayed there for the Shepherds of Christ meetings and many nights. This continued for six months. On September 1st, I gave a very special rosary at 12:00 noon, Friday, a time my Son requested that the rosary be prayed at the Center. Rosaries were given on most Fridays at 12:00 noon. Very tender rosaries of my Son's special love for His beloved souls. I want published a book of these rosaries received on Friday at 12:00 noon. I want published the first book of rosaries with all the rosaries already discerned. In this book, you should include pictures of the windows in the Rosary Chapel, the love songs given from my Son, Jesus, the Seven Sorrows and the messages I have specified. The second book of rosaries should be all of the rosaries received during the Shepherds of Christ meetings. These rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary were given to teach chapter members about Our lives. They are to be spread to this world. They will lead the hearts of your members to my Heart and the Heart of my Son. A book should be published as soon as possible for rosaries for children. I have given many children's rosaries, and the early rosaries were given for children. These rosaries should be used in the Junior Shepherds of Christ Movement.

    We have given to you thirteen books. Many answers to your problems are in these books. These books, God's Blue Book and Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary are an important tool to draw souls back to the Church. My Son is so wounded by the indifference and neglect given to Him in the Eucharist.

    The Center will light up this world, for many of my messages and my Son's messages were received there. The rosaries were received at the Center. The hearts of many will be filled with the love of God when you circulate these rosaries.

    I call out to you. I will continue to come on the 5th of each month. The time was changed at Our Lady of the Woods for I have requested that the rosary be prayed close to 6:30 p.m.

    Your Center will remain divided. The funds will come when these rosaries and love letters are circulated.

    The funds for the Shepherds of Christ will come when you circulate and publish the books and tapes. I have given to you information about these books. My Son has requested a book of messages given after the daily Masses. These messages will lead many to a deep union with God during the Mass.

    You are given great gifts in these messages. Satan has confused and tried to stop these messages. These messages need to circulate. They will lead many to God. I beg you with my motherly Heart to please listen to me. Today is a special day, this October 5th. This is my message to all, to help circulate these messages. Pray earnestly for their circulation and publication. Pray for the funds to help you circulate the books and tapes. The tapes will help many in hospitals, nursing homes. Pray for the funding and it will come.

    Many other messengers will come to confuse the importance of these messages. SATAN wants these messages stopped. When they are circulated, my Son will unite deeper and deeper in such oneness with many hearts. These will be the soldiers that will carry His love to this world. Unless these messages of His love are transmitted in the Church, the Church will continue to suffer.

    I beg you to listen. I am Mary, your Mother. Many of my little children will go to hell. You hold personal messages from Our Hearts and Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

    I am Mary, your Mother, and thank you for responding to my request.

Message from October 5, 1996, Apostles Manual

Mary speaks: I am Our Lady of the Rosary. The Fatima message will unfold around the Shepherds of Christ Movement. I am begging you, please, publish these Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. I appeared daily for 14 months and delivered rosaries for the world. Why have these rosaries been held back from this world? Souls are dropping into hell. Do you comprehend the importance of these rosaries to the Fatima message?

    I have appeared as Our Lady of Light and Our Lady of Sorrows delivering these rosaries.

    I am now delivering this message as Our Lady of the Holy Rosary.

    A great mission I give to you, my beloved apostles in the Shepherds of Christ Movement is to live these rosaries and spread the messages to the world. You must reach the world with these teachings I am giving in the rosary.

    On this October 5, 1996, I beg you as your heavenly Mother to not ignore the importance of these rosaries. I have appeared, I have begged, I have warned you. I cannot hold back the hand of my Son any longer. His hand is struck with power.

    Today is the 5th of the month, first Saturday. I beg all to study this message and to tell all that come on October 13th, 1996 the importance of these live rosaries and the completion of the Fatima message.

    I am Our Lady of the Holy Rosary. This is the key to watching the Movement spread. I am assisting you in publishing and circulating these rosaries. Anyone who stops the rosary messages and meditations will deal with my Son, Jesus!

    Souls are at stake and souls have been lost because of the delays to hold back the messages in God's Blue Book and Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. Any negative references in the Movement to these messages displeases my Son for you have been given the greatest gifts in these revelations. I am asking all to help in the circulation of these rosaries and messages. We are communicating to the world majorly in these messages. The completion of the Fatima message is greatly dependent on these messages. Do not give into Satan any longer to block these messages. You are dealing with my Son, Jesus. This is a great gift given to the world. It would please my Son greatly if you expressed to Him your great thanks for the gifts He has given to you. Your answers are found in these messages. They must be studied and recognized for the great gift they are. You were chosen by God to deliver this message to the world. The ingratitude of many displeases my Son greatly. It is now time for the leaders of the Movement and all apostles to support these messages. It is now time to study the content in its entirety. You are missing the key directions because you do not even read the messages.

    I am Mary, your Mother. You will be rewarded with the funds needed when you publish these messages and rosaries.

Revelation Chapter 12

Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman, robed with the sun, standing on the moon, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. She was pregnant, and in labour, crying aloud in the pangs of childbirth. Then a second sign appeared in the sky: there was a huge red dragon with seven heads and ten horns, and each of the seven heads crowned with a coronet. Its tail swept a third of the stars from the sky and hurled them to the ground, and the dragon stopped in front of the woman as she was at the point of giving birth, so that it could eat the child as soon as it was born. The woman was delivered of a boy, the son who was to rule all the nations with an iron scepter, and the child was taken straight up to God and to his throne, while the woman escaped into the desert, where God had prepared a place for her to be looked after for twelve hundred and sixty days.

    And now war broke out in heaven, when Michael with his angels attacked the dragon. The dragon fought back with his angels, but they were defeated and driven out of heaven. The great dragon, the primeval serpent, known as the devil or Satan, who had led all the world astray, was hurled down to the earth and his angels were hurled down with him. Then I heard a voice shout from heaven, 'Salvation and power and empire for ever have been won by our God, and all authority for his Christ, now that the accuser, who accused our brothers day and night before our God, has been brought down. They have triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word to which they bore witness, because even in the face of death they did not cling to life. So let the heavens rejoice and all who live there; but for you, earth and sea, disaster is coming-- because the devil has gone down to you in a rage, knowing that he has little time left.'

    As soon as the dragon found himself hurled down to the earth, he sprang in pursuit of the woman, the mother of the male child, but she was given a pair of the great eagle's wings to fly away from the serpent into the desert, to the place where she was to be looked after for a time, two times and half a time. So the serpent vomited water from his mouth, like a river, after the woman, to sweep her away in the current, but the earth came to her rescue; it opened its mouth and swallowed the river spewed from the dragon's mouth. Then the dragon was enraged with the woman and went away to make war on the rest of her children, who obey God's commandments and have in themselves the witness of Jesus.

October 1, 2004

My dear friends,

    I give my heart to Jesus and Mary with you
in love. In these troubled times of the election and war
and wonders of peace we have suffered many hurricanes
since Mary's image head was knocked off.

    Florida appeared to be squeezed like a wet wash cloth
August 13, 2004 a hurricane, September 5, 2004 another hurricane,
September 13, 2004 another hurricane. Jesus sent me to Florida last
Thursday to take the path across Florida, 60 and 70 to bless
the state before the hurricane. It was terrible I was on
the west side all through it. On September 5th I was in the building
in Clearwater and on August 13, 2004 the hurricane was averted as
we prayed in China.

   Mary's message of peace must be sent to the priests.
A Jesuit with the blessing of his provincial and his rector has
completed the Priestly Newsletter he studied in Rome and can
teach in the Pontifical Colleges The Newsletter is literally a
work of art dedicated to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary based on
the Word and the writings of the Church. It will be a special
issue and surprise to you. It is ready to go to 75,000 priests.
We need at least $7,000 for the postage in the United States and
then the foreign mailing. It can really help the world in
these decisive times before the election.

   October 13, 2004 is the 87th anniversary of Mary's last apparition
at Fatima. We need to make reparation to God for how Mary's
image was destroyed. We are about to put protection over Jesus'
face which is costly. Please we desperately need your help to do this.
MARY IS THE QUEEN OF PEACE spreading the consecration
to the 2 Hearts to 75,000 priests can help the peace of this world.

LOVE in Their Hearts, Rita

   

 October 1, 2004

     We have had many trials in Florida .

 

     Mary appeared 7 years every day before her image head was knocked off.

 

 

     We pray from Clearwater and all our centers for the priests the Church and the world united on the internet and with many others.

 

     Fr. Carter our founder circulated the Priestly Newsletter for over 8 years.

 

     A Jesuit of over 40 years and who can teach in the Gregorian colleges in Rome and all pontifical colleges has written the new Priestly Newsletter to continue the work Jesus gave to Fr. Carter 10 years ago. Fr. Carter died.

 

The day he accepted was Pentecost Eve - here is the picture taken.

   
 



     At 6:20 our prayer time. He accepted with the blessing of his provincial and rector.

     Here is a message from Jesus to Fr. Carter when Fr. Carter began the Newsletter that finally went to 85,000 priests.

 

July 31, 1994

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."

- Message from Jesus to Father Edward J. Carter, S.J., Founder, as given on July 31, 1994,
feast of Saint Ignatius Loyola, Founder of the Society of Jesus (The Jesuits)

 

August 1, 1994

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.

                            You ignored her
                            You defaced the rainbow image
                                Remember Noah's arch --

                        Remember the sign of the rainbow

   

Genesis 9: 12-15

    And this, God said, 訴s the sign of the covenant which I now make between myself and you and every living creature with you for all ages to come:  I now set my bow in the clouds and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth. When I gather the clouds over the earth and the bow appears in the clouds, I shall recall the covenant between myself and you and every living creature, in a word all living things, and never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all living things.

   

God the Father speaks:
                            I sent the rainbow 1996.
                           
Florida has had to deal
                                with many hurricanes
                                and floods.

                            I am God the Father -- you refuse to
                                listen to Mary.

                           This is My sign sent to you --
                                the sign of the rainbow 

                            You will not listen --

                           peace is found in
                               listening to Mary

 

 

   

Mary's Peace Plan

1.         Consecration to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary 末 until a sufficient number
of people make and live the consecration, we will not have peace in the world.

2.         Praying the rosary.

3.         Observing the First Saturday Devotion.

4.         Making reparation to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

 

 

God the Father speaks:

                        I want the Newsletter
                            sent out.

                        Please help Me.

                         This, Shepherds of Christ, is My Son's 
                            Movement.

                         I am God the Father.
