Excerpt from November 4, 2001 message

Jesus speaks:  To those who pray My prayers I
                        promise the following special
                        graces:

                                 - A deeper understanding of the 
                                     Divine Mysteries through fervent
                                     recitation of the litanies.

                                 - I promise a deeper love in your heart
                                     for your God and a deeper love
                                     for your fellowmen.

                                 - Those who pray the prayers fervently
                                    will experience a deep union 
                                    in My Heart and My Mother's heart,
                                    they will be given special insights
                                    into My unfathomable love for men
                                    and experience a thirsting within
                                    themselves to want to help souls
                                    through intercessory prayer and sacrifices.

                                 - They will have a deeper love of the Mass
                                    through this deeper consecration.
                                    [consecration to Their Hearts]

                                 - They will know Me more intimately.

                                 - They will want to live their lives to 
                                    help save souls.

                                 - They will have a deeper love for the priests shepherds.
                                 - They will have a deeper love and dedication
                                    to the Church. (I founded)

                                 - They will want peace on the earth.
                                 - They will want peace in their own hearts.

                                 - You will experience a fearlessness the more
                                    you pray the Holy Spirit Novena prayers
                                    given to you.

                                 - As you meditate on the scriptures you will
                                    understand more fully the plan of
                                    the Father to lead the souls into the
                                    great Reign of My Sacred Heart.

                                 - You and all who pray the Holy Spirit Novena
                                    and the Shepherds of Christ Prayers will be
                                    united in a deep oneness with each other
                                    and the souls of the earth.

                                 - The more you pray these prayers (both sets)
                                    you will live in the truth as you
                                    dwell in Our Hearts.

                                  - You will be given gifts of the Holy Spirit.

                                  - You and your family will be protected by
                                    My Precious Blood and your families
                                    will receive special protection
                                    against satan from fervent recitation
                                    of the prayers. (the Holy Spirit Novena
                                    and the Shepherds of Christ Prayers)

                                 - I promise to take you and the members of
                                    your family in a special way
                                    into My Sacred Heart. I will lavish
                                    you in the fires of My love.

                                 - The priests and the people of the Church and the world
                                    will receive special graces from the fervent
                                    recitation of these prayers. (both sets)

                                 - I will unite My people in a deeper love
                                    from the graces granted from
                                    fervent recitation of these prayers.

                                 - I give these prayers from My image site
                                    in Florida.
                                   I appear there daily as the Sacred Heart.
                                   Some see Me, some do not, but there
                                    is a special presence there.
                                   My Mother appears there for her children.

                                 - In the five years of her apparitions many
                                    souls who have come have been
                                    given special graces of conversion.
                                    Many have been given grace to lead
                                    them into a deeper love union with
                                    God and the Blessed Virgin.

                                 - The image site in Florida has touched
                                    the world.

                                 - I outpour great grace to those who come
                                    to the site.

                                 - There are tremendous graces of healing
                                    granted to all who come.

                                 - People who come rarely leave unchanged.
                                 - The grace granted works in their lives and in
                                    their hearts, long after they have gone.

                                 - A reminder of their visit only need be given
                                    and they experience a memory of
                                    that moment.

The Priestly Newsletter Book II was released to 
    the production floor at the printer 
    today - Valentine's Day. 

It is a special gift of God's love to the Church.

   

  

   


 

   

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?
