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.

Jesus speaks:    

                        Oh My people—could any priest

                            and people have given you

                            all this in this short

                            amount of time.

                    This is My Movement to help

                        build My Kingdom —

                    I give you this as a gift

                    I appear to lead you into the

                        deepest intimacy with

                            Me ———

                        Where other Movements focused

                            on My Mother—I give

                            you My Movement

                        Shepherds of Christ to help to lead all

                            the souls into the

                                deepest intimacy

                                    with Me.

                I give you My Heart on Fire for you

         On December 17, 1991, I showed My

                                      Messenger My fiery

                                       Heart in a vision —



December 17, 1991 His Burning Heart

Messenger:  I was alone in All Saints Church after Mass and Communion, in front of the tabernacle, when I saw the Sacred Heart. It was red around the outside, then a layer of yellow and then the brightest light in the center. I felt heat and it looked like an open furnace.

    I thought about it all day and it instantly gave me peace and warmth in my heart. This is the purpose of these lettersto draw hearts to the ardent on-fire love of Jesus. I received the following message that day:

    "Open your heart to the fire of God's love. He is ablaze in your heart. He wants to dwell in you and love you and others through you. Love God, yourself and one another and experience the fire set aglow in your heart and experience the warmth of His love."

Mysteries of Light for Children


        First sing the rosary song all verses

            then sing the Song from Jesus—should be

            sung between Mysteries.




Baptism of Jesus

1.  Matthew 3:13

Then Jesus appeared: he came from Galilee to the Jordan to be baptised by John.

2. Matthew 3:14

John tried to dissuade him, with the words, ‘It is I who need baptism from you, and yet you come to me!’

3. Matthew 3:15

But Jesus replied, ‘Leave it like this for the time being; it is fitting that we should, in this way, do all that uprightness demands.’ Then John gave in to him.

4. Jesus is the Light of the World

5. Jesus wants the children to come to


6. Jesus taught us many things while on

        up and the voice of the Father was

9. The Father said:

        Mark 9: 7
            ...‘This is my Son, the Beloved. Listen to him.’

10. Matthew 3: 17

And suddenly there was a voice from heaven, ‘This is my Son, the Beloved; my favour rests on him.’

7. There are parts of the Holy Scripture
        at Mass.

8. We read the Gospel at Mass.

9. Here is the writing about the
        Marriage of Cana

John 2: 3-10

And they ran out of wine, since the wine provided for the feast had all been used, and the mother  of Jesus said to him, ‘They have no wine.’ Jesus said, ‘Woman, what do you want from me? My hour has not come yet.’ His mother said to the servants, ‘Do whatever he tells you.’ There were six stone water jars standing there, meant for the ablutions that are customary among the Jews: each could hold twenty or thirty gallons. Jesus said to the servants, ‘Fill the jars with water,’ and they filled them to the brim. Then he said to them, ‘Draw some out now and take it to the president of the feast.’ They did this; the president tasted the water, and it had turned into wine. Having no idea where it came from—though the servants who had drawn the water knew—the president of the feast called the bridegroom and said, ‘Everyone serves good wine first and the worse wine when the guests are well wined; but you have kept the best wine till now.’

10. Jesus wants us to ask Mary to
        intercede for us to God.






Kingdom of God

1. All of us working together to do
        what God wants us to do will
        help build the Kingdom of God.

2. Listen to the words of the Our Father.

The Our Father

    Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

3. We should think about the words
        when we pray the Our Father.

4. We should pray with all our hearts
        and ask Our Father to help us.

5. Jesus wants us to put the image of the
        Sacred Heart and the Immaculate
        Heart in our houses.

6. Jesus wants us to honor Him and make
        Him the King of our homes.

7. Jesus wants us to honor Him and
        make Him the King of our hearts.

8. We can pray that men will help try to
        spread the good News Jesus gave us.

9. Jesus wants us to be with Him forever in heaven.

10. Jesus gave Himself on the cross to pay for our sins.
        He died for all souls so they could go to heaven.





1. Here are the words of scripture about the 

Matthew 17:2-3

There in their presence he was transfigured: his face shone like the sun and his clothes became as dazzling as light. And suddenly Moses and Elijah appeared to them; they were talking with him

2. Immaculata - Holy Cross is a Catholic Church
        in Cincinnati. They have many steps
        to climb. People go there on Good Friday
        and pray on every step. Here is a picture 
        from outside.


3. I saw Jesus transfigured in the statue several
        times in January, 1996 before Mary appeared
        at the end of 1996 on the building in Clearwater,

4. Here is a picture where Jesus appeared in
        the Sacred Heart statue.


5. Here is what I wrote-

Excerpt from the Daily Messages December 22, 1998

Messenger:  On January 9, 1996, I went to pray. The snow was so bad the street was blocked to Holy Cross-Immaculata. I finally managed to find a place to park and trudged through the snow, panting with joy to be with Our Lord in the tabernacle there. When I arrived all I could do was kneel before the Sacred Heart statue and pour out myself to Him.

From my writings of January 9, 1996, I write:

"I was engulfed again in my love of God and cried so hard because I love Him so much. In this intimate act of giving myself totally to Him, my whole act was in emptying myself, wanting only to be lost in Him and united forever to Him in this most blissful moment. I turned myself over and was lost in Him, knowing His presence with me and knowing His deep love. The world stopped and I existed in Him, longing to forever stay there, so this moment would never end."

"I touched you, God and in this embrace I knew your unending love. I saw Your Body as if it was transfigured and glowing in light and I was lost in Thee."

This is how it began. I would see a great reflective light, as if from a mirror, on the eaves of the church in the front of Holy Cross-Immaculata and His Body was changed in the most brilliant light before my eyes. I cannot describe what I saw, nor have I ever seen it except in this vision and two that would follow the next two days. Jesus was transfigured before my eyes.

The date of January 9, 1996, when it first happened, was the same date January 9, 1994, when I genuflected before the crucifix and the altar at St. Gertrude's and the Father spoke; Blue Book II-page 18, January 9, 1994: "This is My beloved Son in whom I am well pleased."

On January 9, 1996, I would see Jesus transfigured before me in the statue.

6. When Jesus appeared the light was so awesome I
        cannot describe, sometimes I see the light
        like that at Mary's image site.

7. Jesus appeared transfigured below
        Mary's image when we opened the
        Rosary factory February 5, 2000.
        Our Founder Fr. Carter was there. He
        blessed the rosary factory.

8. Mary and Jesus want us to pray the rosary.

9. The pope is the person on earth in the highest place
        in the Church.

10. The pope told us to meditate on these Mysteries of light.
        These mysteries help draw us closer to
        our beloved Jesus, the Sacred Heart,
        He loves us so much.




The Last Supper

1. Here are some words from scripture
        about the Last Supper.

2. Luke 22: 14-20

    When the time came he took his place at table, and the apostles with him. And he said to them, ‘I have ardently longed to eat this Passover with you before I suffer; because, I tell you, I shall not eat it until it is fulfilled in the kingdom of God.’
    Then, taking a cup, he gave thanks and said, ‘Take this and share it among you, because from now on, I tell you, I shall never again drink wine until the kingdom of God comes.’

The institution of the Eucharist

    Then he took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to them, saying, ‘This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.’ He did the same with the cup after supper, and said, ‘This cup is the new covenant in my blood poured out for you.

3. Judas was there at the last supper.

4. Here is what Jesus said about the
        betrayal of Judas

5. Luke 22:21-22 

    ‘But look, here with me on the table is the hand of the man who is betraying me. The Son of man is indeed on the path which was decreed, but alas for that man by whom he is betrayed!

6. Jesus gives us Himself in the Holy

7. He comes to us in a special way.

8. He wants us to receive Him.

9. He can fill us with so much grace
        when we receive Him. We should            
        ask for special grace to love Him
more deeply.

10. Jesus wants us to come to Him like little
        children and tell Him how much we love Him.
        We should spend time with Him after we receive the
