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) Jesus' Prayer before He was arrested.


John 17:20-26

I pray not only for these
but also for those
who through their teaching
    will come to believe in me.
May they all be one,
just as, Father, you are in me
    and I am in you,
so that they also may be in us,
so that the world may believe
    it was you who sent me.
I have given them the glory
    you gave to me,
that they may be one as we are one.
With me in them and you in me,
may they be so perfected in unity
that the world will recognise
    that it was you who sent me
and that you have loved them
    as you have loved me.

Father,
I want those you have given me
to be with me where I am,
so that they may always see my glory
which you have given me
because you loved me
before the foundation of the world.
Father, Upright One,
the world has not known you,
but I have known you,
and these have known
that you have sent me.
I have made your name known to them a
nd will continue to make it known,
so that the love with which you loved me
may be in them,
and so that I may be in them.

6) Matthew 22:36-40.


Matthew 22:36-40

'Master, which is the greatest commandment of the Law?' Jesus said to him, 'You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and the first commandment. The second resembles it: You must love your neighbour as yourself. On these two commandments hang the whole Law, and the Prophets too.'

Messenger:

8) John 16:12-15


John 16:12-15

I still have many things to say to you
but they would be too much for you
    to bear now.
However, when the Spirit of truth comes
he will lead you to the complete truth,
since he will not be speaking
    of his own accord,
but will say only what he has been told;
and he will reveal to you
    the things to come.
He will glorify me,
since all he reveals to you
will be taken from what is mine.
Everything the Father has is mine;
that is why I said:
all he reveals to you
will be taken from what is mine.


Messenger:

9) John 16:20-24


John 16:20-24

'In all truth I tell you,
you will be weeping and wailing
while the world will rejoice;
you will be sorrowful,
but your sorrow will turn to joy.
A woman in childbirth suffers,
because her time has come;
but when she has given birth to the child
    she forgets the suffering
in her joy that a human being
    has been born into the world.
So it is with you: you are sad now,
but I shall see you again,
    and your hearts will be full of joy,
and that joy no one shall take from you.
When that day comes,
you will not ask me any questions.
In all truth I tell you,
anything you ask from the Father
he will grant in my name.
Until now you have not asked
    anything in my name.
Ask and you will receive,
and so your joy will be complete.


Messenger:

10) John 15:18-19


John 15:18-19

If the world hates you,
you must realise that it hated me
    before it hated you.
If you belonged to the world,
the world would love you as its own;
but because you do not belong to the world,
because my choice of you
    has drawn you out of the world,
that is why the world hates you.


Jesus speaks: I ask you to study John, chapters 15, 16, and 17, in their entirety.

For The Press And Those Wishing Some Quick Answers

Messenger: God the Father created all the souls of the earth. He loves them. God wishes us to be with Him forever in heaven loving God and loving one another.

Man sinned. God-made-Man comes to save men from their sins. He gives His life as a sacrifice for them.

God wishes men to be one, holy, happy family here on earth. He wishes them to love God and love one another.

We are here to learn how to love God and others.

The message of Jesus and Mary.

Many souls do not love, they mistreat one another, they do not live by the Commandments.

There is a heaven and a hell.

If we love and serve the Lord and love one another, we will go to heaven.

God is all merciful, God is all just.

We must tell God we are sorry when we sin and have the desire to not sin again.

Jesus has asked us to pray for the priests and the renewal of the Church and the world. He has given us the short prayers in the Shepherds of Christ Prayer Manual.

We have prayer groups all over the world praying for priests and the Church and the world.

Why pray for priests?

Jesus merited grace through His life and death. The priest has been anointed through the Sacrament of Holy Orders to be able to change bread and wine into the Body and Blood of Jesus in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.

Jesus is truly present in the Eucharist, no less present than the day He walked the earth.

The priest celebrates the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. It is the Sacrifice of Calvary sacramentally made present on the altar.

Jesus comes to us most intimately in the Eucharist. Only accepted Catholics who have made their First Communion can receive the Eucharist. A person must be properly prepared.

Mary appears to her children. She wants to lead them to the Eucharistic Heart of her Son, Jesus. He is with us today in many tabernacles in the world, no less present than the day He walked the earth.

He has given me these messages so that people will come to Him and receive Him. He wants to be worshipped and honored in the Blessed Sacrament of the Eucharist. He outpours His life (His grace) to us.

When priests offer the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, great grace is released to the world.

Jesus wants a personal, loving relationship with every soul. He wants to live in them and operate in them.

Jesus speaks: My children, My message is very simple, God loves you, I remain with you today in the Eucharist, you ignore your God Who is truly present. I wish all to receive this writing that they will understand the gift of great life from your God that We give you today. Life is not life if it is not rooted in Me.

I am alive, I am alive, I am alive and I love you. I give you My Sacred Heart. If the tainted children of Eve come to My Sacred Heart through the Immaculate Heart of My Mother, the New Eve, they will be made holy and live in great peace and love. My Heart is on fire for love of them.

The Father wants peace among His children. He created you to love God and love one another. God wants to live in your hearts. He wants you to act more and more as the loving children of God, living in peace and harmony with one another. Every person is uniquely created by God. Do you see all the different faces of men? Then you will know more the uniqueness of each heart created by God. Every heart loves uniquely. Every person is created with special talents to love and serve God. Every person is so very precious to God. Every person is His creation. The Father wishes LOVE.

If you give your hearts to Me and to My Mother, your hearts will be hearts of love.

At Fatima Mary told the earth what they must do to have peace. The children of the earth must obey the Lady of Fatima.

You must:

  1. Give your hearts to Jesus and Mary in consecration. Until a sufficient number of souls do this, you will not have peace.
  2. You must pray the rosary.
  3. You are asked to observe the First Saturday Devotion. (Put excerpt here from Mother at Our Side by Father Carter on the First Saturday)

    Excerpt from of Mother at Our Side (pg. 22)
    Five First Saturdays

    . . .The practice of the five first Saturdays involves: 1) Going to confession, which may be done from 8 days before to 8 days after the first Saturday. Of course, if a person is in the state of serious sin, the confession must be made before receiving communion. 2) Receiving Holy Communion. 3) Recitation of 5 decades of the rosary. 4) Meditating for 15 minutes on the mysteries of the rosary. All of the above (except confession) must be done on the first Saturday of 5 consecutive months with the intention of making reparation to the Immaculate Heart. For those who make the five first Saturdays, Our Lady of Fatima has promised to assist them at the hour of death with all the graces necessary for salvation.


  4. You must make reparation to Our Hearts.

Until these requirements are met by a sufficient number of the children of the earth, you will not have peace.

I wish all bishops to consecrate their hearts to Jesus and Mary and all those in the dioceses under them.

I wish all children in the schools to give their hearts to Jesus and Mary and pray the rosary.

Do you want peace in your hearts? You must obey these guidelines from your heavenly Mother.

The Father has allowed Mary to appear in a permanent image on the building in Clearwater, Florida, in order to spread these messages.

She is the Mother of the Good Shepherd.

She is your Mother, My little shepherds, My little sheep.

I have called you there to help bring about the Reign of My Sacred Heart and the triumph of her Immaculate Heart.

Why Mary? It is the Father's will that you, the tainted children of Eve, are transformed more and more into My image and likeness by being brought forth from the spiritual womb of Mary through the working of the Holy Spirit.

I am the Good Shepherd, I tell you:

  1. Pray the prayers in the Shepherds of Christ Prayer Manual.
  2. Help to circulate the priestly newsletter.
  3. Please, I implore you to help get these messages of love and consecration to the world.

Mary appears, crying to the children. Beg your God for forgiveness, give Me your heart and plead to God for grace and mercy.

Mary speaks: I am Mary, your Mother. I wish you to play the Mary Message tape continually and help to circulate the daily messages from heaven.

I love you, I am Mary, your Mother.

Messenger: What is consecration to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary?

Our hearts were consecrated at Baptism. We renew our consecration by giving our tainted hearts to the pure and holy Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

Their Hearts are spotless. Mary is the only human person conceived without sin. Jesus is a Divine Person with a human nature.

In dwelling in Their Hearts, we dwell in the Hearts of pure love. We are transformed more and more into the image and likeness of Jesus, in the Heart of Mary through the power of the Holy Spirit.

All will be one if they give their hearts to Jesus and Mary.

These consecrated hearts are greatly conformed to the will of God. When we are loving according to His will, we will have peace.

OUR FATHER....

THY KINGDOM COME, THY WILL BE DONE ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN.
