Mary has requested that the daily message be given each day to the world. It is read nightly at the prayer service from her Image Building in Clearwater, Florida, U.S.A. This is according to her request. All attempts will be made to publish this daily message to the world at 11 p.m. Eastern time, U.S.A.

We acknowledge that the final authority regarding these messages rests with the Holy See of Rome.

Father Carter had a dream


Given to Father Carter
on the Feast of St. Ignatius

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."

Father Carter - Mass in China
all the same day


Fr. Carter's chalice




see the "see-through" Host to the left of the chalice

from an earlier message, I quote:

Messenger:        Whenever Fr. Carter would raise
                                the host a little see-through
                                gold host came out from
                                behind and above — this is hard
                                to explain.

Excerpt from January 13, 1999

The glow around the Host is the glow that I see so often at Mass at the Consecration.

It is transparent and golden. It usually comes out about 1/4 the size of the Host, directly above it.

Messenger:        Oh Come, Oh Come Emmanuel

                            Let the blind see

                            Open the doors to China

Messenger:        Show your beauty

Jesus speaks:      Come December 13, 2004

                            Pray for the blind people who
                                do not see their sin
                                Help make reparation
                                Pray 12:00 and come and pray
                                    Mass during the afternoon

Messenger:        The December retreat begins
                                eve of December 9

Jesus speaks:     On December 5 - I appeared on the cross at the
                                point of death


Excerpt from April 4, 2003

Messenger:    I saw Him at the point of death on the cross December 5, 1996, after Mary appeared 500 times.

He hung, all battered, greatly weakened. His mouth moved very clearly. It seems that a man in His condition could not move His mouth to that extent.

Later in the rosary that night, He gave messages and said: "No one was listening."

Excerpt from Rosary on December 5, 1996:

Jesus speaks:  I am alive, I am alive. I am alive. My beloved ones, I show you My face. Do you see the body of a man? Do you see Me alive on the cross? I am speaking to you but the world does not hear. They do not hear the message that I deliver to them. You must pray fervently. You must come to Me that I can be one in you and that I can operate through you as you go into the world this day. I love you. I love you with the most tender love. I am Jesus. I am alive. You are My main soldiers that I will send into the world to lead the strayed ones to My Heart.

The days ahead will be dark days. You must come to My Heart and take shelter in My Heart. It is there that you will be rooted on a firm rock. For My Heart is your home. You will not know the terrors of the night if you stay rooted in My Heart.

Division is blackness in the heart. You must not be divided, divided from anyone. You must remain in union with all men. You must see yourselves as part of the Father's family. Each one of you is so important to the Father's plan.

Isaiah 43: 1-8

And now, thus says Yahweh, 
he who created you, Jacob, 
who formed you, Israel: 
Do not be afraid, for I have redeemed you; 
I have called you by your name, 
    you are mine. 
Should you pass through the waters, 
    I shall be with you; 
or through rivers, 
    they will not swallow you up. 
Should you walk through fire, 
    you will not suffer, 
and the flame will not burn you. 
For I am Yahweh, your God, 
the Holy One of Israel, your Saviour. 
I have given Egypt for your ransom, 
Cush and Seba in exchange for you. 
Since I regard you as precious, 
since you are honoured and I love you, 
I therefore give people 
    in exchange for you, 
and nations in return for your life. 
Do not be afraid, for I am with you. 
I shall bring your offspring from the east, 
and gather you from the west. 
To the north I shall say, ‘Give them up!’ 
and to the south, ‘Do not hold them back!’ 
Bring back my sons from far away, 
and my daughters from the remotest part 
    of the earth, 
everyone who bears my name, 
whom I have created for my glory, 
whom I have formed, whom I have made.

Bring forward the people that is blind, 
    yet has eyes, 
that is deaf and yet has ears.


                            Sing:  Hosea


Hosea 4: 1-3

    Israelites, hear what Yahweh says, 
    for Yahweh indicts 
        the citizens of the country: 
    there is no loyalty, no faithful love, 
    no knowledge of God in the country, 
    only perjury and lying, murder, theft, 
    adultery and violence, 
    bloodshed after bloodshed. 
    This is why the country is in mourning 
    and all its citizens pining away, 
    the wild animals also and birds of the sky, 
    even the fish in the sea will disappear.


Ezekiel 34: 11-16

    “For the Lord Yahweh says this: Look, I myself shall take care of my flock and look after it. As a shepherd looks after his flock when he is with his scattered sheep, so shall I look after my sheep. I shall rescue them from wherever they have been scattered on the day of clouds and darkness. I shall bring them back from the peoples where they are; I shall gather them back from the countries and bring them back to their own land. I shall pasture them on the mountains of Israel, in the ravines and in all the inhabited parts of the country. I shall feed them in good pasturage; the highest mountains of Israel will be their grazing ground. There they will rest in good grazing grounds; they will browse in rich pastures on the mountains of Israel. I myself shall pasture my sheep, I myself shall give them rest–declares the Lord Yahweh. I shall look for the lost one, bring back the stray, bandage the injured and make the sick strong. I shall watch over the fat and healthy. I shall be a true shepherd to them."


                            Song:  In My Heart


Daniel 2: 19-23

The mystery was then revealed to Daniel in a night–vision, and Daniel blessed the God of heaven. This is what Daniel said: 

    May the name of God 
    be blessed for ever and ever, 
    since wisdom and power are his alone. 
    It is he who controls 
        the procession of times and seasons, 
    who makes and unmakes kings, 
    who confers wisdom on the wise, 
    and knowledge 
        on those with discernment, 
    who uncovers depths and mysteries, 
    who knows what lies in darkness; 
    and light dwells with him. 
    To you, God of my fathers, 
        I give thanks and praise 
    for having given me wisdom and strength: 
    to me you have explained 
        what we asked you, 
    to us you have explained 
        the king’s problem.



November 24, 2004  continues

Messenger:        I am wrapped in the embrace of
                                His Divine Majesty —

                            For He comes not robed in gold and silver,
                                but as a babe into our midst —

                            The Mother kisses the little hands and toes
                                of the Divine God —

                            Oh Mary how did it feel to hold the infant
                                so sweet in your arms and to know
                                the child was the Divine God —

                            Oh Beauteous God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, my
                                heart cries for love of Thee and love
                                between all men.

                            A message has been given me to deliver and
                                he has called you to help me to spread
                                it to the world.

                            The emotion God has given to me in apparitions
                                and mystical experiences people do not
                                understand —
                                My heart sings of His greatness —
                                I watch a troubled world go deeper into
                                    a pit, further from the sweetness of
                                    God —

                                To those I befriend I encounter the jealousy
                                    and desire to distract and hamper
                                    the lights He wishes to make known
                                    to me.

                            When the Virgin Mary appeared daily to
                                me 500 times I was surrounded by
                                unbelievers and in the beginning the
                                message Mary gave about reaching the
                                world, especially children in the schools
                                was unheard, because I was surrounded
                                by people focusing on me and desiring
                                to block the message —

                            10 years later much has been accomplished with
                                the school rosary program because of
                                the President of Shepherds of Christ and the Elpers
                                and all the volunteers that have heard
                                Mary's call —

                            I write now of my heart as He beckons me to
                                bring His beacon of light to the world
                                in these writings.

                            A man suffered most of his life with rejection
                                and pain when a caring family opened
                                their arms to him, he began to do hateful
                                things and like a baby wanting to be picked
                                up after raising a ruckus he expected
                                unconditional love after he had provoked
                                the problem in the beginning.

Mary speaks:    There is passive-aggressive
                                behavior people use to provoke others,
                                after a series of passive actions trying
                                to get a reaction from the other — they
                                then become aggressive and act
                                very wounded.

                            The bottom line is to analyze one's heart
                                in the beginning.

                            A child that feels cheated because of the
                                mother or father's absence at work
                                may act up the pent-up anger later.

                            How many children punish their parents
                                for being at work by dirtying the
                                kitchen to getting arrested.

                            Children have a right to have their needs
                                met, but cannot be so possessive
                                they want the parents selfishly to
                                almost honor them and always be

                            There are many games people play because
                                they want attention — Some give and give and
                                give and then decide now it is pay back
                                time doing nasty things, distancing and
                                pouting — just any passive-aggressive
                                behavior to manipulate another into
                                answering their possessive demands or
                                trying to get them to take the blame
                                for 5000 bags of pain they are ready
                                to put on some bodies back in an
                                effort to even the scales on their own
                                back for all the pain of their whole life
                                they have endured.

                            To open a door to such a person is to wait
                                for the smallest thing to go wrong and
                                then that is the end and to respond
                                with constant punishment lasting

                            What they have searched for is not a friend —
                                it is a scapegoat —
                                I will get you to let me in with my
                                over industrious help and then I
                                will carry the anger at you for the
                                attention and love I want from
                                you to heal 40 years or more of pain.

                            A woman was always trying to get a connection
                                where she would do deeds and then she
                                had the right to badger the person for
                                not being available whenever she
                                called —

                            After trying her dysfunctional behavior on
                                many adults and then they all were gone
                                because she was so dysfunctional —

                            She began hurling gifts at a young teenager
                                and demanded she spend hours on
                                the phone talking to her —

                            She made big meals and she wanted in —
                                only to abuse and demand the attentions
                                she wanted.

                            This is one case of manipulation —
                                people sometimes try to take advantage
                                    of children —

                                but people in communities can bring
                                    all kinds of bad habits to the floor —

                                Some want to mother — they are the mother —
                                    you are the child —
                                    in any event you are under and you
                                    have a problem.

                            This survival-rescuer relationships can
                                be seen in grown daughters or sons trying
                                to act things out on their parents.

                            You must pray to be as God wants in all

                            With some people you cannot open their
                                door without getting pulled in and
                                the relationship is constant
                                working out issues.

                            I have watched satan manipulate people

                                1) they fail to recognize authority and
                                    passive-aggressively try to control
                                    those over them emotionally, trying
                                    to weaken them

                                2) some who do not really have it in
                                    their heart to help and have never
                                    accepted any position under anyone
                                    willingly are like bobbing apples
                                    they are under today —

                                    Tomorrow they create the tension of
                                        a spring in the box — they want
                                        to get out

                                3) doing work is difficult if one is always
                                        working on issues —
                                        those under may wish those in
                                        authority to be emotionally under

                            Life is so short —
                                I do not understand why you are not
                                    thanking God for the gift of
                                    allowing me to appear to you.

                                For 7 years I appeared on the building —

Mary speaks:     Jesus gives you Himself in the Eucharist —

Messenger:        Oh I knew more deeply His
                                loving embrace and the power of the
                                Mass, I longed to receive Him, I longed
                                to unite in the Consecration and give
                                myself so completely to Him.



November 24, 2004 continues

Messenger:        I knew that I would receive the Divine
                                God and I was so filled with joy
                                wanting Him so much.

                            I knew more the power of the Mass and I
                                united so deeply begging to God to
                                help me to be holy and realizing
                                that God comes inside our body —
                                We must keep our body holy for Him —
                                We must guard our tongue — Jesus
                                    comes on our tongue —
                                Jesus comes into our body —
                                    How is our heart —

                            Do we lie to justify our bad habits or
                                are we straight —
                                    praying the Our Father with all
                                    our heart and meaning every word

Mary speaks:     Mother Theresa got into the problems —
                                she rolled up her sleeves and she
                                walked amongst the problem
                                and ministered to those in need

                            If a priest and bishop is to help the people
                                he cannot be so high he does not
                                recognize the real problems —

                            In today's Church my children are starving
                                to be fed by Jesus and the Eucharist,
                                but many do not understand that
                                Jesus is longing for them and wants
                                to feed their hunger.

                            Do not underestimate my Son's messages
                                given in the Blue Books and
                                Rosary Meditations and Mass
                                Book as the Mighty Medicine
                                for the sick world.

                            You have lost your focus, giving into
                                satan so he has almost blinded you
                                to the importance of my Son's
                                Movement Shepherds of Christ.


To The Reader (excerpt)

Jesus wants to share His love with you. He comes in these letters to tell you how you can be in intimate union with Him.

All of us possess everything we need to have an intimate union with Him. He has written to me since October of 1991. For at least a year I sat in front of the tabernacle and begged him to talk to me. I wanted words. I prayed to the Holy Spirit and begged and begged Him to baptize me. After a long and seemingly endless search, trying to hear God, He told me to "feed the hungry." For six weeks this was all I heard. I thought maybe I wasn't feeding my children well or eating well enough myself. What a long wait for three words! At long last one day, as I was writing to Jesus, I received a letter back. He told me, "I am Jesus, Son of the Living God." I did not want to write this but it kept coming-and so many other messages. I knew nothing of anyone getting messages. I wrote them, reluctantly, and hid my notebooks. The letters kept coming-a lot in the night-and I would be awakened by long letters which I felt compelled to get up and write down. I read these letters privately and my life began to change. I felt a new life within me.

Mary speaks:     My people - lets go back to 1993 —
                                the Blue Book Messages have
                                majorly affected Billions of Souls
                                and now they are on the internet —
                                so many people can click on
                                the words of the Mighty Medicine
                                every day —

                            When so many are hungry and starving inside —
                                you focus on yourselves and not my

                            When a man is pressed on you can see
                                how angry he can be, but maybe
                                he just lost his son or daughter —

                            LOVE IS THE ANSWER —

                            TODAY PRAY FOR THE PEOPLE
                                TO FORGIVE —

                            Today begin to read Jesus' messages as
                                He is telling you what to do to live
                                holier lives —

                            For 11 years Jesus has written to you —
                                now you are beginning to rush
                                the messages or ignore them entirely —

                            You need to review how important it is
                                to the hungry souls you talk to them
                                about the Blue Books and these messages —
                                one letter can change a man's life —

                            Be thankful God has called you —
                                One man focused on the Eucharist and
                                    being fed can effect so many souls —

                                did you ever see people starving —
                                    how can they think of other things
                                    they are starving —

                            Oh America I appear to you and I love you
                                so much — many in America

Mary speaks:     Be loving

                            2 people married to get love for
                                themselves —
                                Do you think it will work?

                            If you go into religious orders to
                                get love for yourself is that
                                the right attitude —

                            The men entering the priesthood and
                                women the sisterhood have
                                diminished —

                            Why would that happen if they
                            were being fed by the right food?
                                Are they being fed by the food
                                    God has given?


John 6: 35-40

   Jesus answered them:

I am the bread of life.
No one who comes to me will ever hunger;
no one who believes in me will ever thirst.
But, as I have told you,
you can see me and still you do not believe.
Everyone whom the Father gives me
   will come to me;
I will certainly not reject
anyone who comes to me,
because I have come from heaven,
not to do my own will,
but to do the will of him who sent me.
Now the will of him who sent me
is that I should lose nothing
of all that he has given to me,
but that I should raise it up
   on the last day.
It is my Father's will
that whoever sees the Son
   and believes in him
should have eternal life,
and that I should raise that person up
   on the last day.

Wisdom 3: 1-6, 9

But the souls of the upright are in the hands of God, 
and no torment can touch them. 
To the unenlightened, they appeared to die, 
their departure was regarded as disaster, 
their leaving us like annihilation; 
but they are at peace. 
If, as it seemed to us, they suffered punishment, 
their hope was rich with immortality; 
slight was their correction, great will their blessings be. 
God was putting them to the test 
and has proved them worthy to be with him; 
he has tested them like gold in a furnace, 
and accepted them as a perfect burnt offering.

Those who trust in him will understand the truth, 
those who are faithful will live with him in love; 
for grace and mercy await his holy ones, 
and he intervenes on behalf of his chosen.

                            Sing:  Psalm of Good Shepherd


Romans 6: 3-9

You cannot have forgotten that all of us, when we were baptised into Christ Jesus, were baptised into his death. So by our baptism into his death we were buried with him, so that as Christ was raised from the dead by the Father’s glorious power, we too should begin living a new life. If we have been joined to him by dying a death like his, so we shall be by a resurrection like his; realising that our former self was crucified with him, so that the self which belonged to sin should be destroyed and we should be freed from the slavery of sin. Someone who has died, of course, no longer has to answer for sin. 

    But we believe that, if we died with Christ, then we shall live with him too. We know that Christ has been raised from the dead and will never die again. Death has no power over him any more.


John 14: 1-6

Do not let your hearts be troubled. You trust in God, trust also in me. 

    In my Father’s house 
        there are many places to live in; 
    otherwise I would have told you. 
    I am going now to prepare a place for you, 
    and after I have gone 
        and prepared you a place, 
    I shall return to take you to myself, 
    so that you may be with me 
    where I am. 
    You know the way 
        to the place where I am going. 

    Thomas said, ‘Lord, we do not know where you are going, so how can we know the way?’ Jesus said: 

    I am the Way; I am Truth and Life. 
    No one can come to the Father 
        except through me.

These are pictures that John took of Father carter's casket. 
    It looked like Father Carter turned his head.



Look how his one ear is off the pillow
    and then the other one remains hidden.
