A Prayer for Intimacy with the Lamb
the Bridegroom of the soul

    Oh Lamb of God, Who take away the sins of the world, come and act on my soul most intimately. I surrender myself, as I ask for the grace to let go, to just be as I exist in You and You act most intimately on my soul. You are the Initiator. I am the soul waiting Your favors as You act in me. I love You. I adore You. I worship You. Come and possess my soul with Your Divine Grace, as I experience You most intimately.


October 20, 2003

Messenger:        Dear Jesus,

                                Help me to do your will.

Jesus speaks:    My people you cannot lie it is

                            wrong to misrepresent something.

Mary speaks:     I want to tell you to review my message

                                given at Fatima

                                October 13, 1917


Excerpt from the Spirituality of Fatima

by Father Edward Carter, S.J.

            October 13, 1917

                In her message that day, Our Blessed Mother told the children:

    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 any more, for He is already too grievously offended by the sins of men. People must say the Rosary. Let them continue saying it every day.(17)


17. For background material on Fatima, I am particularly indebted to 
    Our Lady of Fatima's Peace Plan from Heaven
(Rockford: TAN 
    Books and Publishers, Inc., 1983). p.7.

October 20, 2003 message continues

Mary speaks:     I want you to realize I am the Queen of Peace.
                            You are my children.
                            I am telling you this as a Messenger from
                            I am the Queen of Peace

                                Until a sufficient number of people in
                                    the world have consecrated their
                                    hearts to My Immaculate Heart and
                                    the Heart of my Son Jesus, you will
                                    not have peace in the world.

                            Satan is attacking the priests, the people in the
                                Churches, those making decisions about
                                the curricula in the schools.

                            It is the responsibility of the family and
                                Catholic schools to see to the spiritual
                                development of the children as well as
                                their other needs.

                            The family rosary is a must in homes.

                            There is so much focus on sports and extra
                                curricular activities, but I tell
                                you, "the Family that prays together
                                stays together."

                            I want my children in Catholic schools
                                to be taught the rosary and to
                                recite it together in a group.

                            Children should learn to sing the songs
                                Jesus has given, the Songs from Jesus.
                                These little song books are available
                                and can be ordered in English and

                                Discs and tapes are available so you
                                    can listen to the songs and learn
                                Also, Fernando, sings the songs for you 
                                    and it is so very beautiful.
                                (these are from the Parents and Children's book)

                            Videos can be ordered in Spanish of special
                                rosaries and songs by Fernando done
                                before my image in Florida. They are
                                so beautiful. I wish these played
                                on December 12, 2003 with my Son's
                                prayers recited and the Songs sung
                                by Fernando recorded on the disc
                                of songs. These songs and song sheets
                                should be made available. Song
                                books will be available in the store
                                and outside and can be purchased with
                                the tapes and discs. I want framed pictures
                                of Our Lady of Guadalupe available.
                                Many tapes and Christmas cards should
                                be made available. Wallet pictures
                                are to be circulated to all there.

                            Please send your homemade rosaries to
                                Doris at the Morrow Center. Rosaries
                                are needed for the rosary program.
                                Funds are needed for this.

                            I must stress the importance of those years
                                little children and grade school
                                children are being taught about
                                the rosary by parents and schools.

                            These rosary meditations We have given
                                from Our Hearts are as follows:

                                The rosary aves are very important for
                                    schools. There is one sheet
                                    8 x 11 printed on both sides.
                                This is a sheet of rosary meditations all
                                    15 mysteries, Joyful, Sorrowful, Glorious
                                    all with the Imprimatur in
                                    English, Spanish, French, Portuguese.

                                This sheet can be downloaded from
                                    the homepage of the Shepherds of Christ
                                    web site directly above my live
                                    image from the camera.  

The Parents and Children's Rosary Book
    is available. These rosaries (3)
    have been recorded by Fernando
    before My image. These rosaries
    have the Imprimatur.


                            Rosaries are available for schools
                                (rosary makers and funds are
                                needed to continue this special

                            Kits are also available

                            Coloring Books in English and Spanish
                                are available





October 20, 2003 message continues

Mary speaks:     The Little People and Elderly Book is
                                available in English and Spanish
                                with the Imprimatur.

                            Cards are available for short consecration

Mary speaks:     Also the hot red card




October 20, 2003 message continues

Mary speaks:     Tell the world this message.

                                I appear to tell you your children
                                    need to pray the rosary.

                                Start at an early age.

                                Do it daily with them.

                                Catholic schools should pray the
                                    whole rosary frequently.

                                Children need to meditate on the mysteries.
                                    You need to know about Our lives.

                                How can you be Christ like if you
                                    never meditate on Christ's life?

                                Children need to learn to do these
                                    spiritual exercises.

                                It will strengthen them.
                                It will help them deal with every day pressures.
                                When children go off to college they are
                                    confronted in a big way with the
                                    evils in the world.

                                Practicing your Catholic faith,
                                    attending Mass whenever possible
                                    teaching your children about
                                        the Mass and taking them
                                        to Mass will help them love
                                        their religion.

                                The Church is the bride of Christ.
                                    Jesus loves His bride.
                                    You too must love the Church.
                                    Jesus gives you so many gifts
                                        through the Church.
                                    Pray to love the Church.
                                    Because individuals sin and are
                                        imperfect that should not
                                        stop your love for the Church
                                        and appreciation for the priests
                                        and the sacraments.

                                Many priests do not love me as they
                                Pray for your priests to give their heart
                                    to my Immaculate Heart.
                                    I am Mother of the Church.
                                    I love the Church.
                                    I am Mother of the priests.

                                Satan has tried to tempt people to be
                                    less and less connected in their
                                    hearts with their parents.

                                God gave you parents to help you
                                    grow spiritually.

                                Being united in prayer at Mass and
                                    praying the rosary is a
                                    powerful tool to help the
                                    family grow in love and
                                    do God's will.

                                I want my children to know how
                                    much I truly love them. I am
                                    Mary, your Mother.

                                Mother of God
                                Mother of the Church
                                Mother of my children of the earth.

                                I want a personal relationship with
                                    all my little children.
                                Every child is special to me and I
                                    love them so very much.
                                I want all my children to be with
                                    Jesus for all eternity.
                                You have been asked by Jesus to pray
                                    for the priests, the Church and
                                    the world.

                                Jesus gave His life for each and every
                                Jesus is the Savior.
                                Jesus loves the souls so much.

                                Children are sent off to colleges with
                                    hope and then they face the evils in the

                                    Read the children these words.

                                    Jesus loves you so much.

                                    Jesus is the Son of God.

                                    God the Father is your Father.

                                    There are Three Persons in
                                        one Divine God.

                                    God wants children to know about
                                        the Persons of the Trinity.

                                    The Rosary is the children's prayer
                                        praying the daily rosary helps
                                        children later on in life to cope.

                                    Elderly people can be told when
                                        very sick to pray several
                                        Hail Marys and meditate on
                                        one Mystery of the Rosary.

                                    You must pray the rosary.

                                    I am the Queen of Peace.

                                    I give you the rosary to pray for your
                                        own interior peace and the
                                        peace of the world.

                                    Think of the benefits of praying the rosary.

                                        You live the mysteries in your lives.

                                        You can more easily cope with the
                                            problems in your lives because
                                            of your close connection to
                                            my life and the life of
                                            my Son Jesus through
                                            praying the rosary faithfully.

                                    Spiritual exercises like the rosary help
                                        you to learn how to exercise
                                        your mind and heart this way.

                                    When faced with a crisis you could
                                        pray the rosary and meditate
                                        for days.

                                    Little children should be taught the
                                        rosary at an early age.

                                    Little children can color while the
                                        family prays the rosary,

                                        I give you these coloring books.

                                    I give you these rosary videos

                                        for youth and for schools and

                                        for elderly, for all

Mary speaks:         I want you to realize the rosary is a powerful
                                    weapon against satan's attacks.

                                I want you to pray the Novena of 9 Hail

                                    This is a most powerful prayer.

                                Oh your children will be much more prepared
                                    to face the evils in the world if you
                                    prayed the Family Rosary and they
                                    practiced their Catholic Faith.

                                Never before in the history of the world is
                                    so much sin running rampart.

                                My poor little children

                                    the exposed Eucharist.

                                The cards for this special retreat should

                                    Encourage retired priests to pray
                                    these prayers in groups of retired
                                    priests. Priest prayers are so

                                Try to encourage people on retreats

                                So much grace is given to take them
                                    deeply in My Heart when they
                                    pray the prayers.

                                Encourage bishops and priests to
                                    pray these prayers.

                                Encourage bishops and priests to be
                                    Apostles of the Eucharistic
                                    Heart of Jesus.


Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus

My dear fellow Associate Members,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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