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.

February 13, 2002 - ASH WEDNESDAY

Messenger:     Today Our Lord gives me this special message for you.

Jesus speaks:   My child have you ever beheld the child so old and yet so
                          sick, when one is old, they can still be the little
                          children of God the Father and your heavenly mother and
                          they can be a very sick child.

                          I can bring them to their knees.

                              Remember St. Paul, he did not see, he was knocked from
                          his horse. He saw the light, he could see.

                              Oh it may be so agonizing for you to watch the world and even
                          your own family and they do not see.

                              I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

                              I want you to review the message given to Fr. Carter on
                              the feast of St. Ignatius July 31, 1994.



~ July 31, 1994 ~
Feast of St. Ignatius

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."

Jesus speaks:    Look at the 13th promise it is printed in bold.

                          The world may seem to be going off more and more. You must
                              read the scriptures. You have been given the Blue Books.
                              I write to you in the messages in God's Blue Book.
                              Use the Blue Book letters daily, open anywhere I speak to

                          Use the daily messages I give to you to keep your focus.

                          Remember this promise I give to you, if you help to spread
                              the devotion to My Heart and your Mother's Immaculate
                              Heart, I will help with your children especially at the hour of death.

                          So many are so blind and their hearts can be changed only
                          with My grace.

                          Your world may veer so far from the truth.

                          What do you do?

                          I have given you these prayers to help to bring about
                              the Reign of My Sacred Heart.

Jesus speaks:    Do you see a sick child filled with a disease?

                          Do you see one with a high temperature?

                          Do you see My Power?

                          Do you know that My grace can enlighten them?

                          Do you know I can heal their wounds inside?

Messenger:     I prayed for help and God made it clear to me, He is
                              almighty. He has all the power.

                        Men can talk on talk shows etc., until they are "blue
                              in the face" trying to influence people and some
                              people can veer more and more from the truth, but

Messenger:      One Month I took eight rolls of film on the 5th,
                              it was October 5, 2000 and all that showed up
                              mostly in the pictures were those two bottom
                              panels where Jesus appears and all I was
                              worrying about was all the money I spent
                              getting lots of prints of all eight rolls and
                              Mary didn't hardly show up.

                              I prayed about it and I handed out a lot
                              of pictures on the 13th of the month
                              in China. Our partially blind servant

Isaiah 30: 19-26:

Yes, people of Zion living in Jerusalem,
you will weep no more.
He will be gracious to you when your cry for help rings out;
as soon as he hears it, he will answer you.
When the Lord has given you the bread of suffering
and the water of distress,
he who is your teacher will hide no longer,
and you will see your teacher with your own eyes.
Your ears will hear these words behind you,
'This is the way, keep to it,' whether you turn to right or left.
You will hold unclean the silverplating of your idols
and goldplating of your images.
You will throw them away like the polluted things they are,
shouting after them, 'Good riddance!'
He will send rain for the seed you sow in the ground,
and the bread that the ground provides will be rich and nourishing.
That day, your cattle will graze in wide pastures.
Oxen and donkeys that work the land
will eat for fodder wild sorrel,
spread by the shovel-load and fork-load.
On every lofty mountain, on every high hill
there will be streams and water-courses, on the day of the great slaughter
when the strongholds fall.
Then moonlight will be bright as sunlight
and sunlight itself be seven times brighter
-like the light of seven days in one-
on the day Yahweh dresses his people's wound
and heals the scars of the blows they have received."



Messenger:     And I quote St. Ignatius 2 camps.



Excerpt of The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius, by Louis J. Puhl, S.J.



The one of Christ, our supreme leader and lord,
the other of Lucifer, the deadly enemy of our
human nature

PRAYER.   The usual preparatory prayer.

window at a former Jesuit Seminary

137. FIRST PRELUDE.   This is the history. Here it will be that Christ calls and wants all beneath His standard, and Lucifer, on the other hand, wants all under his.

138. SECOND PRELUDE.   This is a mental representation of the place. It will be here to see a great plain, comprising the whole region about Jerusalem, where the sovereign Commander-in-Chief of all the good is Christ our Lord; and another plain about the region of Babylon, where the chief of the enemy is Lucifer.

139. THIRD PRELUDE.   This is to ask for what I desire. Here it will be to ask for a knowledge of the deceits of the rebel chief and help to guard myself against them; and also to ask for a knowledge of the true life exemplified in the sovereign and true Commander, and the grace to imitate Him.



140. FIRST POINT.   Imagine you see the chief of all the enemy in the vast plain about Babylon, seated on a great throne of fire and smoke, his appearance inspiring horror and terror.

141. SECOND POINT.   Consider how he summons innumerable demons, and scatters them, some to one city and some to another, throughout the whole world, so that no province, no place, no state of life, no individual is overlooked.

142. THIRD POINT.   Consider the address he makes to them, how he goads them on to lay snares for men and bind them with chains. First they are to tempt them to covet riches (as Satan himself is accustomed to do in most cases) that they may the more easily attain the empty honors of this world, and then come to overweening pride.

   The first step, then, will be riches, the second honor, the third pride. From these three steps the evil one leads to all other vices.



143.   In a similar way, we are to picture to ourselves the sovereign and true Commander, Christ our Lord.

144. FIRST POINT.   Consider Christ our Lord, standing in a lowly place in a great plain about the region of Jerusalem, His appearance beautiful and attractive.

145. SECOND POINT.   Consider how the Lord of all the world chooses so many persons, apostles, disciples, etc., and sends them throughout the whole world to spread His sacred doctrine among all men, no matter what their state or condition.

146. THIRD POINT.   . . .

end of excerpt of The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius



Messenger:     And I quote St. Paul to the Romans.



Romans 5: 15-21

    There is no comparison between the free gift and the offence. If death came to many through the offence of one man, how much greater an effect the grace of God has had, coming to so many and so plentifully as a free gift through the one man Jesus Christ! Again, there is no comparison between the gift and the offence of one man. One single offence brought condemnation, but now, after many offences, have come the free gift and so acquittal! It was by one manís offence that death came to reign over all, but how much greater the reign in life of those who receive the fullness of grace and the gift of saving justice, through the one man, Jesus Christ. One manís offence brought condemnation on all humanity; and one manís good act has brought justification and life to all humanity. Just as by one manís disobedience many were made sinners, so by one manís obedience are many to be made upright. When law came on the scene, it was to multiply the offences. But however much sin increased, grace was always greater; so that as sinís reign brought death, so grace was to rule through saving justice that leads to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Messenger:         There are so many abortions everyday.
                        Some kill their own children.

                        When somebody sins they rationalize why what they
                            do is okay.

                        They blind themselves many times by fallacious

                        Whatever the case of the blindness or how the devil
                            tricks men into thinking certain untruths I state

                        The messages Jesus and Mary have given to us are because
                            so many souls are being lost.

                        I saw her appear daily and she cried out how souls
                            were going to hell like rain.

                        Why do I continue to write to you like this?

                        Why has God called me on this day to tend to a sick child?

                        The little ones are so precious to us and
                        the little children of Mary so very dear to her.

                        God is all powerful.

                        What will change their blindness is His grace.

                        We have to pray special grace is released for the souls to see.

                        Look how blind men are that they ignore Our Lady
                            appearing on the building.









February 13, 2002 message continues

Messenger:     The fact that people ignore this vision is indeed a sign
                            of their blindness.

                            When a child has a small fever, we take notice because
                        they should not run a fever, but when a child has a very
                        high fever, we try to do lots of things to bring it
                        down, we call the doctor, we take stronger action.

                            The fever is so high for Mary's children she has
                        appeared on the glass every day for over 5 years.
                        How do I know what she says? She appeared daily to
                        me for 14 months crying out about reaching her

                            I know my Shepherds of Christ apostles and associates,
                        you have been called in your heart to help by being 
                        deep intercessors. The importance of spreading this
                        Newsletter Book II is so important to the world. It is
                        important to spread the Blue Books and begin the Prayer
                        Chapters. We need to get the rosary in the hands of all.
                        We need to circulate the writings on the Mass and
                        the rosary. We need to tell the souls the importance
                        of the Morning Offering and Consecrating their hearts.





February 13, 2002 message continues

Messenger:         Well this is the message of Our Lord for February 13, 2002.
                        It is now 5 years since the very special talk given by
                        Fr. Carter (click on, also on tape) and the very special rosary (click on 
                        and live on tape).

                            You are called to be a deep intercessor to grow in your
                        own personal holiness and to pray for the priests, the
                        Church and the world.

                            Priests who write to us because they read these messages
                        should address the letters to me, Rita Ring, and tell me they are
                        responding to the messages on the internet. They should
                        identify themselves if they follow these messages daily.
                        It would help us especially to know what priests follow
                        the daily message and if they will pray the prayers
                        themselves (prayer manual daily.) We will pray especially for you.

                            It is very important to Our Lord and Our Lady that
                        priests pray these prayers.



February 13, 2002 message continues

Messenger:   It is really powerful when a priest prays the short prayers in the
                        Holy Spirit Novena also because their prayers are so
                        powerful and it helps boost our prayer power. If they
                        pray the Holy Spirit Novena also, they are helping a lot
                        by spreading the Blood of Jesus on the world and
                        praying for healing.

                            Please, all Shepherds of Christ associates and apostles,
                        realize God is calling you to pray these prayers,
                        especially united to us, to help bring down this special
                        grace to help change hearts.

                            Our Lord told me to ask you to pray these prayers daily
                        if possible during lent, anyone who can pray them.
                        When you can, pray before the tabernacle.

                            Please do all you can to get your priests to pray
                        the prayers. Please try to begin prayer chapters
                        in your Churches.

                            We need this special grace to be released for
                        our priests, the Church and the world.

                            We need your prayers more than ever now, with
                        the Priestly Newsletter Book II going out to the priests
                        in the U.S. probably next week.

                            We need lots of prayers, the red prayer manual

                        will respond to the mailing of the book and the prayer

Spouse of the Lamb

March 1, 1998 - 5th Day

The Marriage of the Lamb

Messenger:  What do I write today? Since that day, February 25th I have experienced the Bridegroom as He stands above me and strengthens me in this trial I have experienced. It has been a hellish experience to do the Father’s will, to stand firm for the truth when it would have been so much easier to laugh and to play as the world danced and I cried inside to stand behind the truth in this "Godless" world.

    They danced and played and whistled a tune on the flute and the Bridegroom was ignored at His own wedding. How indeed would it be if at the marriage the bridegroom was treated as if he were not present?

    We went to the altar, we received Him, the Lamb, the Bridegroom of our souls and then we ignored Him and went to laugh and play. We ignored Him and fed our faces.

    The tenderest love Our Divine Captain gives to us in giving Himself in the Mass. The Almighty God, the King of heaven and earth, gives Himself to us in the deepest spousal relationship and what happens here? We ignore Him and talk to mere humans with God in our breast.

    Let us make reparation to Him, Our Savior, for the ingratitude and indifference given to the King, the Lamb of God, Who was slain for our sins. They now have roped off my pew with a red chord and asked me to move my jacket as I prayed. Several ladies stand at the end of my pew and talk openly in church of the bishop to come in this church today. All the priests, the royal bridegrooms, anointed by the Lord, came out immediately after Mass and talked to the people, right in church. There was conversation and laughing at the beginning of Mass and at the end. A royal banquet, the Lamb was slain for our sins, now sacramentally made present here and who pays Him heed?

    They worship Him with fan-fare and trumpets, flutes and tambourines, but when the banquet is served, they all get up and rush from the table. Little focus is given to the King and royal Bridegroom of the soul. He is really ignored. Oh precious King, we love You, we worship You, we adore You, forever.

    I was unable to be intimately connected to Him today in a way that gave me happy feelings, but in my heart I know in the suffering there is no place to go but to Him.

    Preparation must be made. Time must be set aside for a person who is important in our lives. Time must be set aside to prepare for the Lamb, the Bridegroom of our soul. It begins with acts of surrender, saying the "Prayer for Union with Jesus", the consecration, and the "Prayer before the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass".

    I love You, Jesus. In this suffering, I unite in You, passion and death. I love You, my Divine Lord, the Bridegroom of my soul.




February 7, 2002


To whom it may concern,

    We circulate the Priestly Newsletter that goes to 75,000 priests in the world. This has been circulated since 1994 at the direction of Fr. Edward Carter, S.J. who had a doctorate in Theology and taught at Xavier University for over thirty years and author of eighteen books on the spiritual life and many other various publications.

    Our primary purpose is to circulate this Newsletter. We are now sending three years of Newsletters in a book of 342 pages to 75,000 priests in the United States and 90 foreign countries. A special Newsletter is enclosed with Father Carter's powerful writing on Grace (2001 issue 1). This writing is also available on tape and on disc.

    Our coequal purpose is to circulate prayer manuals Father Carter compiled for prayer chapters praying for the priests, the Church and
the world.

    All of our printing and postage costs so much money.

    We operate from the Virgin Mary building in Clearwater, Florida, pictures are enclosed. We use the building to spread materials and rosaries
to encourage people to pray for the priests, the Church and the world.

    We also have a church we received from the diocese in China, Indiana where we distribute our materials and pray before the Blessed Sacrament hourly and about two hours or more at 6:20 every day. Monthly adoration before the exposed Eucharist is held for our members for 48 hours on the 12th of each month to the 14th.

    We have a third center in Morrow, Ohio which is our communication center and mailing address.

    We circulate rosaries handmade to Catholic schools all over the United States and meditation sheets and consecration cards. We try to send scapulars too when we have them. We supply many beads to our rosary makers for this.

    We had difficulty all last summer securing funds for beads for our rosary makers. We were not able to send the 100,000 or more rosaries we usually send in October and May because of funds.

    We need $10,000 every month for the loan on the Virgin Mary building. We pray nightly there usually for about two hours or more at 6:20. We pray all through the day there, hourly, many times before the image. A big prayer meeting is held on the 5th of the month. Prayers are prayed for about 4 hours for the priests, the Church and the world. We broadcast to at least 8 states and all join in the prayers, including Morrow and China.

    We have a nursing home ministry and a prison ministry. We supply coloring books of the rosary mysteries and the Mass to children.

    We desperately need funds for the printing and the rosary making operation and all the postage. Bishops from foreign countries beg for rosaries and prayer sheets with the Shepherds of Christ Prayers.

    Now we are struggling with the monthly rent on the building and the postage for the foreign mailing of the Priestly Newsletter Book II.

    We always need money for the rosary beads for the schools and the Virgin Mary building.

    We also do a Holy Spirit Novena, but the little book has been out of print for some time because of lack of funds. Teachers like to use it for confirmation. We have prayer chapters using it daily all over the world.

    We want to circulate pictures of the crucifix and Mary's image on the building, we are unable to do this because of lack of funds. Enclosed are pictures of the crucifix and the Virgin Mary building.

    A very important part of our Movement is trying to get people to say the Morning Offering. Here is a card we distribute extensively, especially to Nursing Homes and school children.


    Here is a short form of consecration to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary that we circulate extensively.


    Can you help us. It is a real shame to not even have rent on the building Mary appears on.

    We need to tell the world about the Mass. This is another important aspect of our ministry. We have so many writings about the Mass. Mass Book I with the Imprimaturóand all Fr. Carter's writings and many other writings discerned by Fr Carter before his death. 

    It is a shame with all the money in the world not to be able to get the rosary beads to the rosary makers for school children who want them to pray the rosary.

    Our movement is trying to do what Our Lady told us to do at Fatima for peace in the world.

    Can you help us?
