A Prayer for Intimacy with the Lamb, the Bridegroom of the Soul

Oh Lamb of God, Who take away the sins of the world, come and act on my soul most intimately. I surrender myself, as I ask for the grace to let go, to just be as I exist in You and You act most intimately on my soul. You are the Initiator. I am the soul waiting Your favors as You act in me. I love You. I adore You. I worship You. Come and possess my soul with Your Divine Grace, as I experience You most intimately.

(End of Excerpt from March 8, 2001 Daily Message)

Messenger: I give my heart to Jesus and Mary with you in love.

                     I write to you as a messenger of God.

                     The sky is so blue today and the trees will soon be green,
                     the spring flowers will come out all over, the air will be
                     fresh and the breeze dance across our foreheads and
                     we will be warmed by a golden sun high above that sheds
                     golden rays down on our weary little bodies.

                     A hand greater than ours runs this vast universe.

                     I am a grandma and I look into the eyes of a little child
                     that one day is not here and then all of a sudden, the cries
                     and little body of a beautiful baby comes to us, with
                     little fingers and toes and a little heart waiting for love in
                     the big world.

Messenger: This year as the buds come out on the trees, Father Carter
                     is not here on the earth to see them, his favorite season was
                     fall and the sight of one golden-red leaf reminds me so much
                     of him and how he treasured the fall leaves. 

                         When we drove to China and he was to say Mass he
                     would always say Ė it is a sunny day. I remember the first
                     day in 1994 he asked me to go to Falmouth to the farm. I got
                     in the car he was driving and he said it is going to be a great


Messenger: It was a most beautiful day. He took
                     me before the statue of Mary and he
                     said to me lead the rosary, I thought
                     I can't lead the rosary, he is a priest.
                     I had never led the rosary except at
                     home and with my children and then
                     we took turns. Father Carter said
                     again "lead the rosary" and so I did.
                     Then he said when a few people
                     joined us "Sing a Song" I thought
                     okay, I guess I can do it without a
                     piano so I did it.

The Sacred Heart statue was not there yet when Father Carter and I went to Falmouth Kentucky in 1994.

                     That began my career of leading and praying the rosary in

                     The day is sunny and the sky is Virgin Mary blue, Ė what is
                     that you say?

                     One day I hadn't seen Mary (only once she had appeared
                     July 17, 1993 in my dining room) and then that July 5, 1994
                     I would see Mary daily for 14 months. And I began to know the
                     Hearts of Jesus and Mary from the way they spoke to me when I
                     received the rosaries in the Red Rosary book.

                         The message I remember so deeply implanted in
                     my soul those last 9 months Mary appeared daily was to reach
                     the schools with the rosary and the meditations and consecration
                     cards. Our president sent out this picture of Mary this

Do you want your school children to be holy?

Then we must pray as Mary asked at Fatima on October 13th, 1917:

I am the Lady of the Rosary. I have come to warn the faithful to amend their lives and to ask pardon for their sins. They must not offend Our Lord any more, for He is already too grievously offended by the sins of men. People must say the Rosary. Let them continue saying it every day.

We would like to offer your school rosaries for the youth, the Rosary Aves (short bead by bead meditations), and consecration cards (all have the Imprimatur). We have approximately 25,000 rosaries in stock for immediate delivery to schools for October. Call our toll free number 1-888-211-3041 today to reserve your school's supply and arrange immediate shipment. We distribute the rosaries without charge by operating on a donation basis.

We must instruct our children about their souls. Our children need to learn to pray the rosary. Praying one decade a day in schools will help children to have peace and to love the rosary. They need to be taught to rely on the rosary. Devotion to the rosary could help decrease violence and increase vocations.

All of our printed materials can be downloaded from our website at or ordered over the phone. The consecration cards really help in the classroom and often "spread down the hall" after one teacher has success with it.

We love you and pray for you and the children every day,
Shepherds of Christ Ministries

Messenger:     In October, 2000 we had requests for over 
                     80,000 rosaries from Catholic schools and we
                     didn't have rosary makers to fill them, but we did
                     finally get all the rosaries for the schools that requested
                     them and are sending them out to them now.

                         Mary especially likes Walter's rosaries for the schools,
                     you can get packets by calling Morrow or e-mailing
                     and we can send them to you if you want to make
                     rosaries for the schools. We have a rosary factory in
                     Florida in the Virgin Mary building. Here is a letter from our president.

A Note from the President of Shepherds of Christ:

If you are devoted to Our Lady's rosary, we need your help! A member of our ministry is very devoted to Our Blessed Mother and he is helping to teach us how to grow our volunteer rosary makers. He estimates that we will need approximately $37,000 this year for beads alone! This translates into 22,339,500 rosary beads (yes, 22 million beads) assembled by volunteers into 378 thousand rosaries. The biggest users of our rosaries are the Catholic schools, who requested more than 100,000 rosaries last year.

Can you help us? I appeal to you for funds, whether large or small. We give because we love God, we love our Blessed Mother, and we love souls. We will accept gifts in many forms, besides cash or check donations, we can receive gifts directly in the form of stocks or property. These gifts can offer large tax advantages to the donor and increase the monetary value of the gift to us. Also if you can help assemble rosaries we need your help! If you can help us in anyway, please call or write us. God Bless!

I love you,
John Weickert

Messenger:     I don't know what I would do without my rosary.
                     I love it and I can't wait to pray all my rosaries every day.
                     They are a big part of my peace and my life. I get into
                     that rosary and meditate on the mysteries and I am "set
                     free" and with my God. I meditate on the Joyful mysteries and know

                     how I am being formed more and more into the image of Jesus
                     and I love the birth of Jesus, my joy is in Jesus my
                     Savior, my joy Ė He comes to the earth and gives Himself
                     to us. I love the Sorrowful Mysteries, I identify my
                     life with His, the Agony, Scourging at the Pillar,
                     Crowning with Thorns, Carrying of the Cross and Crucifixion

                     and I put all my sufferings of that day into my moments
                     I recite the rosary and identify them with
                     Jesus' sufferings.

                     And then no matter how sorrowful the day, I know
                     that the Victory is won.

                     I see the Resurrected Lord come forth from the tomb as
                     I meditate on the Glorious Mysteries.


                     My heart is filled with light and joy, I see the
                     Ascension and see Jesus go up into heaven and
                     I see us as His apostles here below standing in
                     the field saying "yes Jesus" we will do your work
                     and spread the good news - "Christ has died,
                     Christ has risen, Christ will come again."

                         And then I see all of us gathered at 6:20
                     everywhere on the earth and I see those apostles
                     gathered in Florida, praying real hard for an extra
                     outpouring of grace from the Holy Spirit for the
                     hungry souls of the earth.



                          I see Mary go into heaven
                     I see the Coronation of Mary as Queen of heaven
                     and earth and then I think of the Reign of the
                     Sacred Heart and the triumph of Mary's Heart
                     and I am happy and I am filled with zeal to do
                     all I can to help bring about the Reign of the
                     Sacred Heart and this great era of peace
                     Mary promised at Fatima.

                     Do we want peace?

                     Here are some messages of Mary from Fatima. July 13, 1917 p.14.

Excerpt from The Spirituality of Fatima and Medjugorje

During this same July apparition, Mary showed the three children a vision of Hell. She told them:

You have seen Hell, where the souls of poor sinners go. To save them, God wishes to establish, in the world, devotion to my Immaculate Heart. If people do what I tell you, many souls will be saved and there will be peace.

The war (World War I, then raging) is going to end. But if people do not stop offending God, another and worse one will begin in the reign of Pius XI. When you shall see a night illuminated by an unknown light [January 2, 1938], know that this is the great sign that God gives you that He is going to punish the world for its many crimes by means of war, hunger, and persecution of the Church and the Holy Father. (12)

To prevent this, I shall come to ask for the consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart and the Communion of Reparation on the five first Saturdays. If my requests are granted, Russia will be converted and there will be peace. if not, she will scatter her errors throughout the world, provoking wars and persecutions of the Church. The good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer, and various nations will be destroyed....

But in the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph, the Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, Russia will be converted, and a certain period of peace will be granted to the world. (13)

The October 13 vision was accompanied by the great Miracle of the Sun described in the previous chapter. In her message that day, Our Blessed Mother told the children:

I am the Lady of the Rosary. I have come to warn the faithful to amend their lives and to ask pardon for their sins. They must not offend Our Lord any more, for He is already too grievously offended by the sins of men. People must say the Rosary. Let them continue saying it every day.(17)

Introduction: How It All Began

During the summer of 1993, Father Edward J. Carter, S.J., Professor of Theology at Xavier University, Cincinnati, Ohio, began to receive mystical locutions (messages) from Jesus and Mary on a regular basis.

In a message given on May 31, 1994, Jesus asked Father Carter to begin the publication of a spirituality newsletter for priests. To be sent to more than 60,000 priests in the U.S.A., and also to priests in other countries, the newsletter is published by Shepherds of Christ Publications, an arm of Shepherds of Christ Ministries, and will be distributed bi-monthly. The title of the newsletter is Shepherds of Christ.

Jesus has asked that chapters be formed to pray for the needs of priests around the world. The chapters are to pray in a special way for the spiritual success of the priestly newsletter, as well as to aid in the financial support of this publication. The chapters and members are to be called Shepherds of Christ Associates.

Our Lord has stressed that Shepherds of Christ Associates become an international movement.

October 13, 1994
Message to Fr. Carter

Jesus speaks: 'My beloved priest-companion, today I come to you with another mission. I am asking you to establish Shepherds of Christ Ministries. At My request you have already begun the priestly newsletter, Shepherds of Christ, and the prayer chapters, Shepherds of Christ Associates...

'I am giving you this message on this day, the 77th Anniversary of the Great Apparition at Fatima, because of the close connection between the Shepherds of Christ movement and the Fatima message. The Fatima message is centered in devotion to My Heart and My Mother's Heart, especially in consecration to Our Hearts. Shepherds of Christ Ministries is also centered in devotion to Our Hearts. I will use Shepherds of Christ Ministries as a great instrument in helping to bring about the triumph of the Immaculate Heart and the reign of My Sacred Heart. When this occurs, My Church and the world will be experiencing the great era of peace promised by My Mother at Fatima.

'Today, then, October 13, 1994, the 77th Anniversary of the Great Apparition at Fatima, marks the birth of Shepherds of Christ Ministries. I pour forth the great love of My Sacred Heart to all. I am Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the flock.'

Through Him, With Him, In Him

Excerpt from November 7, 1998 Daily Message

Jesus speaks: I am the Bread of Life. I give you My Word and the Eucharist to feed you. Father Carter is My Bread of Life priest. It is through these messages given to the messenger and through the priestly newsletter that I wish the hungry souls to come for My ardent on fire love.

(End of Excerpt from November 7, 1998 Daily Message)

Mary speaks: I appeared all through the century to you my beloved

                        At the end of the century My Son Jesus wrote through
my messengers Rita and Father Carter to help
bring about the Completion of the Mission
I began at Fatima, to help bring about
the Reign of His Sacred Heart.

                        Oh my children, please help me.

                        I am the Lady clothed with the sun,

                        I am the Lady of the Clouds.

                        I appear in sky color to you.

Revelation 12: 1-2

Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman, robed with the sun, standing on the moon, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. She was pregnant, and in labour, crying aloud in the pangs of childbirth.

Messenger: I write now to you.


Messenger:     The last day Father said Mass he was really sick,
                     he said it and then went in the hospital. He was
                     so holy.

                         His whole life was dedicated to writing about the
                     spiritual life. He coughed every time he talked all summer,
                     but he managed to write down his grand synopsis
                     of the spiritual life in the 20 page Newsletter he wrote
                     in June. He was determined to get it done. He wrote 17
                     books and 33 Newsletters for the priests and the world
                     in the last 33 years of the second millennium. Jesus
                     told him to begin the movement in 1994.
                     He had a Doctor's in theology. I wish everyone could have
                     seen him those months when he wrote the last Newsletter
                     on Work. He knew labor. He labored hard to get all his
                     writings to us. Reading his Newsletter on work should
                     show us how a dying man who gave his life for
                     Jesus and to bring the great Reign of peace
                     thought as he labored to bring that writing to us.

                         The second to the last newsletter, the 20 page
                     Newsletter, was a summation of the spiritual life.
                     This Newsletter he knew would go on forever and ever
                     in the Church helping priests and all men. 

                         Our Lord told him to begin the Movement and begin Prayer Chapters.
                     This was in 1994 on the feast of St. Ignatius. Father Carter was a Jesuit
                     priest, it was on the feast of St. Ignatius he got the message to begin the
                     Newsletter and the Prayer Chapters to help bring about the Completion
                     of the Mission Mary began at Fatima. 6 years later the Newsletter
                     goes to 75,000 priests. It goes in English and Spanish in 90
                     countries, over 245-250 bishops and cardinals use the Newsletter
                     for their dioceses.

                         After Father went into the hospital I hardly saw Father after
                     that, in the 3 months I talked to him several times on the phone
                     daily and communicated to him through the fax. I went to a few
                     Masses a priest said and they wheeled in the sick, skinny, priest
                     I loved so much, but most of my time those last 3 months were
                     doing what he told me to do. Jesus had directed him to continue
                     the work of the Newsletter with his writings and to get the Prayer
                     Chapters started all over the world to help with the Completion
                     of the Fatima Mission. When he was in the hospital I saw him a
                     good part of the day. I met with him for a long time in the parlor
                     in November at his residence but most of the communication was
                     through long telephone conversations and faxes working to
                     continue this mission as Jesus had instructed him. The last time I
                     saw him was December 14, 2000, 4 days before he died. Here is
                     the picture of that meeting. It was at his Jesuit residence.

Messenger:     Father worked so hard on that 20 page Newsletter,
                     it was the synopsis of his whole life and he wrote about
                     the spiritual life, our life with God and he was taping it
                     so he could see if there were any typo's etc. He worked
                     so hard to make everything perfect, so no errors were
                     in any writings, so they could be passed on and circulated
                     to Cardinals, bishops and priests all over the world.

                     He was sick when he was reading it, but he forced himself 
                     and he explained how it was set up to me. He told me
                     about it. In the Newsletter he talked about the overview
                     of the Spiritual life, the life of grace through baptism,
                     our relationship with Jesus who is Mediator.
                     He wrote of our relationship with the Father, the
                     Holy Spirit and Mary. Then he told me (all this from
                     the table of contents of the newsletter) how we live out the
                     spiritual life in the Church. The Heart of the
                     Spiritual life is in the sacraments and the Eucharist.

                     Father says in his newsletter on priesthood

                         "Through the sacrament of Holy Orders, Jesus has
                               provided His Church with priests who play a major
                               role in the dispensing of this life which Jesus
                               has come to give and to give most abundantly."

                     Priesthood is key to the life of the Church.
                     Prayer is the key exercise of the spiritual life.
                     And I quote from Father's Newsletter about our relationship
                           with others.

                         "Growth in the Christ-life gives us an increased
                               awareness of our relationships with others.
                               That is to say, the true Christian is keenly aware
                               that, to a great degree, God intends each of us to
                               press on toward maturity in the spiritual life
                               through proper relationships with our fellow
                               human beings."

                     From Father's Newsletter on the Christian and the World I quote:

                             "God calls us to share His love for His creation.
                         Growth in Christ develops our awareness of this
                         truth. The Christian should have a deeper love for
                         the world than the non-believer."

                         Growth in the spiritual life entails an ongoing
                     and progressive purification.

                         From Father's Newsletter on the Vision of Faith I quote

                                "Through faith we share in Godís knowing activity                  
                            in a special way, and we are able to know God and
                            creation in relationship to God in a supernatural,
                            God-like fashion.
                                  If we are to properly progress in the spiritual life,
                            we must allow this vision of faith to more and more
                            penetrate our activities."

                         The virtue of trust is extremely important for
                               growth in the spiritual life.

                         From Response to God's Love I quote

                                "Christian hope is a virtue that allows us to tend toward God
                            in Christ as our absolute fulfillment, our absolute future. Hope
                            allows us to trust that God will grant us the graces necessary to
                            achieve this goal."

                         Humility is a very important virtue given to us
                               for the spiritual journey.
                         One of the blocks to the spiritual life, Father said,
                               was lack of humility.

                     Strength in Weakness
                         We must realize our weakness and see our
                               strength is in Him.

                     Living in the Present Moment
                         I quote from Father

                            "I suggest that one of the most difficult acts
                                  of self-discipline in the spiritual journey
                                  is to concentrate on the present moment."

                         This is necessary Father says for growth in the spiritual life.

                     Surrender to God
                         We must surrender to God. We give ourselves more
                               and more to Jesus.
                         We are guided through the Church

                     Mind and Heart
                         We cannot become heartless and too much
                               focused in our minds.

                     The Mystical Life
                         The mystical life is the relative ultimate development
                               of the spiritual life itself.

                         Father talks about the Hearts of Jesus and Mary and
                               the life of Consecration.

                     Here is the copy of the Table of Contents on his twenty
                           page Newsletter.  


Messenger: Father wrote his whole life about the Spiritual life,
                           his first book Response in Christ is the beginning.
                           In the new Newsletter he explains the
                               Christian Life of Grace.
                           In it he explains grace in general. He
                               explains the Graced Christian, their
                               relationship with the Father, Christ, the
                               Holy Spirit, Mary, the members of the
                               Church, and the relationship with
                               man and his world. 

                     Here is this table of contents from the most recent
                           Newsletter on Grace, Issue 1, 2001


Messenger: Father wrote about the spiritual life, always
                           explaining it and our relationship
                           with the Triune God, Father, Son and
                           Holy Spirit, Mary, and our relationship with
                           the members of the Church and
                           the relationship with man
                           and his world.

                     Father wrote
                           1)  Response in Christ  1967
                           2)  Response to Godís love  1984
                           3)  Tell My People  1994
                           4)  Spirituality Handbook  1994
                           5)  The Newsletter Issue 3, 2000 

                     This was his final complete document on
                           this subject The Spiritual Life. 

                     He told me that Jesus covered the whole of
                           the spiritual life in His messages
                           in Tell My People.

                     He said the spirituality handbook was
                           a synopsis of the spiritual life
                           and all Shepherds of Christ
                           members should read it over and
                           over. This is on tape as Father
                           Carter reads it.

                     The Newsletter issue 3, 2000 was a great work.
                           He worked hard and he told me how Jesus
                           wanted it out and told me how important
                           it was.

                     We struggled so much for money for it. It was hard
                           on Father writing it while he was literally dying.
                           He told us Jesus said it must go out. After
                           he worked so hard to meet the deadline, we did
                           not have money for the Newsletter and it was
                           held up. Father was upset because Jesus told
                           him it must go out. God the Father gave me
                           strong messages to get this newsletter out.

                     I felt that God might punish the earth
                           because even after Mary appeared on the
                           building we couldnít get help to pay for the

                     Father prayed every day at Mass. He wanted to
                           please God.

                     He was told of the urgency of this.
                           Finally someone gave us the money. 

                     The person told us he promised Jesus while visiting
                            Rome that he would help us.

                     Do you believe? Do you realize the gift given to us
                            in Father Carter's writings. He was directed
                            to write to the priests. We have struggled
                            for money to do what God asked him to do. 

                     I have cried for help to do what Our Lord and Our Lady
                            have asked for.

                     We just don't know the gifts in Father
                            Carterís writings and how it is
                            so important to help bring about this
                            great Reign of the Sacred Heart.

                     Here is an excerpt from a letter I recently wrote
                            to a man on March 8, 2001.

                     . . .This Newsletter was Father Carterís 32nd Newsletter out of the 33 he published
                     while he was alive (speaking of Father Carter's newsletter An Overview
                     of the Spiritual Life). It was his ďbabyĒ to help lead the priest into a deeper love
                     union with Jesus and help them in their spiritual life. In the 17 books he wrote
                     the last 33 years of the second millennium (the last 33 years of his life) they were
                     written with this deep connection to Jesus. All his books went through strict
                     discernment and most have the Imprimatur, I think all the
                     Nihil Obstat

                         He was praying every day for funds for the Newsletter to be sent to
                     the 75,000 priests. We operate on donations. Father prayed
                     at Mass every day for this. We pray with all our hearts, in China,
                     Indiana, our Eucharistic Center, where the international mailing
                     is sent from. They pray on the hour (during the day) for all the needs
                     of the movement and they pray at least a couple of hours every night
                     at 6:20 all before the tabernacle. We have a retreat every
                     month for 48 hours before the exposed Eucharist praying
                     so hard for grace to be outpoured on the souls of the earth,
                     telling Jesus how much we love Him. We want to make reparation
                     to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary for the offenses against them and we
                     offer our prayers at this retreat for this.

                         We plead for grace for the souls of the earth. We pray
                     united as a body.

                         Father gave me instructions to get the Newsletter Issue 1, 2001 out in
                     January with his writing on Grace. I just never realized
                     he would be dead. It costs us $70,000 to send the Newsletter
                     to the Priests for Printing and Postage. We pray hard and the funds come.
                     We prayed so hard for Fatherís 20 page Newsletter and a
                     man came and he promised Jesus he would help us while he
                     was in Rome. He wanted to give the money to help
                     Jesus, he said.

                         It is really hard. In October we had over 80,000 orders for
                     rosaries for schools. We have to get people to make
                     all these rosaries. Sometimes we donít send the rosaries
                     because we donít have people to make them.
                     Sometimes we donít send them because
                     we donít have funds to send them.

                         Our Lady wants all things being shipped from our
                     Eucharistic Center in China IndianaÖ

                         The man who donates money must realize what a light they are
                     to the world. The Newsletter goes to 75,000 priests who affect millions
                     of people in Churches, in the Body of Christ and others all over the world.

                         Now we are struggling so much to send out this Newsletter
                     Issue 1, 2001 to so many priests that Father taught about Jesus. This
                     instrument Jesus told him to write. We will tell
                     them about his death and then give about 50,000 priests in the
                     US the prayer manual to begin Prayer Chapters.
                     This is what Jesus told Father Carter to do, to begin these prayer
                     chapters. Jesus said He would give great grace to those who pray the prayers
                     to lead them to the depth of His Heart and His Motherís Heart.

                         75,000 Priests will get the Newsletter that talks
                     about the Morning Offering. When Father Laurentin did
                     his article on Clearwater he included the little prayer of morning
                     offering Jesus gave me in French.

                         Now so many priests will think more about consecration
                     and the morning offering from reading the Newsletter. If people
                     offered up their days in union with the Mass, so much
                     grace could be outpoured on the earth. This
                     could change the face of the earth.

                         This Newsletter Father wanted. We are on the
                     mountain top now.

                         Father is interceding from the other side
                     for grace for the world for the Reign of the Sacred Heart
                     in all Hearts.

                         If priests began prayer chapters all over the
                     world with the Prayers Jesus gave Father Carter it
                     could help majorly to bring to completion the
                     mission Mary began at Fatima that the
                     Sacred Heart will Reign in the hearts of
                     men on this earth.

                         We are at battle. This is the war. Christ is Victorious.
                     We want to reach the souls so more will go to heaven, so they will be
                     on the right side with Jesus.

                         This is our mission, to pray for the souls, the priests, the Church
                     and the world and to get others to be united with us praying
                     for the priests the Church and the world.

                         We are sending this current Newsletter with the Prayers
                     Jesus gave Father and the Prayer Manual to priests
                     all over the world, 75,000. Father Carter regularly
                     wrote to them.

                         They will call from all over to begin prayer chapters
                     and we can only order 100,000 prayer manuals to
                     be printed, that isn't even 2 per priest.
                     $10,000 buys 100,000 Prayer Manuals and
                     18,000 buys 200,000 Prayer Manuals.

                         It usually takes 3 to 4 weeks to print them. Most of the
                     priests in the US will be getting this Newsletter and Prayer Manual
                     in a few days 20,000 Newsletters were sent out of China, Indiana on
                     March 2, 2001, First Friday to the Foreign countries. We need Prayer
                     Manuals. That is what Jesus told Father Carter could majorly help
                     to bring about the Completion of the Fatima Mission and
                     the Reign of the Sacred Heart in so many hearts.

                         We are at battle with the devil. Jesus has won
                     already. We need to reach the souls so, so many
                     souls will make Him King of their Hearts.

                         Mary told us what to do at Fatima.

                         Jesus told Father Carter at the end of the century what He
                     wanted Father Carter to do.

                         I go to prisons and nursing homes and speak sometimes.
                     I try to get others to visit nursing homes and prisons. It is important
                     we tell them their lives are so important to God. They can offer up all
                     they do in union with the Mass for souls and grace can be released for
                     the thirsty souls from their offering.

                         I am an Apostle of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, that
                     is what we are in the Movement, living to help
                     bring about the Reign of the Sacred Heart.

                         Just think $18,000 can get 200,000 Prayer
                     Manuals in the hands of priests all over the world,
                     praying for the priests, the Church and the world.

                         We get so many letters every day from Africa Ė
                     begging for rosaries and religious books. We have people
                     all over the world that pray the prayers with us. The
                     Prayers Jesus gave to Father Carter.

                         When priests read of Father Carter's death, priests that loved him
                     they will hear about the Prayer Manual and the Prayers.
                     I am begging for help for money for Prayer Manuals

                     Mary appeared to me daily long before she appeared on
                     the building and I would cry because the last 9 months
                     of the 14 months she appeared she wanted us to reach
                     the school children and I didn't know how to do it.
                     I was so blocked and so few would listen to Mary's
                     message. I would go to Holy Cross-Immaculata Church
                     and hang over the pew and I felt as if swords were in me.
                     Jesus and Mary gave me the consecration prayers on
                     the little red cards for the school children. I
                     cried many times when Mary spoke to me.
                     The night Our Lady gave me the School Rosary
                     program I cried all night.

                         I am not in this for money. Mary appeared daily between July 5, 1994 -
                     September 5, 1995. After all that, the day the Red Rosary book left the
                     publisher December 17, 1996, Mary appeared on the
                     building in Rainbow Color.
                           I was told to put Harold's rainbow
                              and rose on the
                              cover of the Red Rosary book.

                         We had 17th meetings monthly since February 17, 1994 to 
                     about September 17, 1996. Jesus called the first 13th meeting on
                     October 13, 1996. At this meeting He strongly called the apostles.
                     Then Mary appeared on the building December 17, 1996.
                     Books had been published with the
                     fact, I received a vision of Jesus' Sacred
                     Heart December 17, 1991 long before Mary
                     appeared on the building. My first message
                     ever published was December 17, 1993 long before
                     Mary appeared on the building December 17, 1996.

                         For years my heart ached because of what
                     Our Lady said when she appeared daily
                     January 1, 1995 - September 5, 1995 about reaching the
                     children and the schools.

                         I love souls and the devil wants them for
                     himself and he doesn't like what we are doing.
                     On January 5, 2001 Mary appeared in rainbow color on
                     the building as Father Mike lead the rosary.

 January 5, 2001

Messenger: She appeared in golden color on the 5ths in the year 2000.

July 5, 2000

Messenger:     Before that when I said the rosaries on the 5th at night July 5, 1998 to the end
                     of 1999 the glass appeared black on the building. On the
                     third anniversary she appeared gold December 17, 1999, then
                     she started appearing in gold on the 5ths. Without
                     a flash we took these pictures during the rosaries on
                     the 5ths. She first appeared to me July 5, 1994. July 5, 1998
                     Father Carter consecrated the world to the Sacred Heart from the
                     Florida building. July 5, 2000 we got the first picture
                     of Mary appearing in gold at night.

Messenger:     February 5, 2001 I got Jesus' face. Here are
                     the pictures from March 5, 2001 when I did
                     the rosary under Mary.

Messenger: Enclosed is the first page of the 20 page Newsletter (Issue 3, 2000)
                           Father wrote on the spiritual life.
                           You can print it from the PDF files or
                           click on to read it. 

                     Enclosed is the first page of Fatherís 33rd Newsletter (Issue 4, 2000)
                           written before he died. 

                     Enclosed is the first page of the Newsletter
                           (Issue 1, 2001) we are now sending to 75,000 priest presently. 

                     Enclosed are recent letters from priests. 
                     We receive so many letters from priests and bishops
                           especially requesting the Newsletter for their
                           dioceses. Many seminaries use the Newsletter.
                           Here is a letter from the Pontifical North American
                           College in Rome. (Newsletter Issue 1, 2000) 

                         We need your prayers, we need money to pay
                     for the present Newsletter. We need funds for the
                     Prayer Manuals. Please pray for us to be able
                     to reach so many souls with the instrument
                     Jesus gave to Father Carter.

                     March 10, 2001

                     My dear donors,                                         

                          Your gifts are helping to bear fruit all over the
                     world in many priests' hearts. They are helping our
                     children and the souls of the earth.

                          What a gift to be able to see our
                     money live on and on to better
                     the world and help souls get to

                                  Thank you for your gifts.

                                                I love you,
                                                Rita Ring  

                    To whom it may concern. We work very closely
                           with a priest daily and many bishops and
                           priests are helping us do what we do. None of my
                           writings or messages are published without
                           discernment by a Roman Catholic Priest. 

(Letters from others are not part of my writings, they are letters from others.)

A Note from the President

     If we can make a $20,000 payment on the newsletter (which just went out to the 75,000 priests and 8,500 religious houses last week), our printer will start the prayer manual and can have 200,000 ready by March 21.

     I give my heart to Jesus and Mary with you in love.


Excerpt from Tell My People

Follow the Way I Have Given You

Jesus speaks: "My beloved priest-companion, I have given you this book of messages for the spiritual instruction of My people. I have put before My people the path I wish them to follow. The messages I and My Mother have given all converge upon devotion to Our Hearts, and, in particular, upon consecration to Our Hearts. Ideally, devotion to Our Hearts culminates in the act of consecration to My Heart and My Mother's Heart. Living out this consecration day by day leads to the highest sanctity.

"My people who make and live out the consecration to Our Hearts are helping to bring about the great new era of peace which the Church and the world will experience after the period of purification has been completed. This period of splendorous peace will be characterized by the triumph of the Immaculate Heart and the reign of My Sacred Heart!"

Reflection: Jesus and Mary, in Their great love for us, have put before us this book of messages for our spiritual instruction. The Hearts of Jesus and Mary ask for our response of love. They ask us to live the messages. They ask us to incorporate all the messages into the living out of our consecration to Their Hearts. Who would want to refuse Their invitation?

Dear Father Carter:

I am very grateful for the the Letter: Shepherds of Christ, which you so generously send me. I have read them and am re-reading most of them.

I am sending a small donation to help pay the expenses of sending some of them. I wish I could send more. I am in a Rural Parish in the hills of Puerto Rico where work is scarce.

If possible and available, I would like to have the last four copies in Spanish. I am stationed with a Puerto Rican Confrere and his English is limited. Having the copies in Spanish, we both can enjoy reading them. In the future, please send me the Spanish copy instead of the English copy.

Gratefully yours,

Sorrowful MotherMary's Message from the Rosary of August 27, 1996

Mary speaks: I stood beneath the cross of my Son, and my Heart was in such pain for I saw Him before my eyes. I saw Him covered with blood. I saw Him die. My Heart, my children, my Heart to watch my Son, but my Heart, my Heart, how I suffered for my little children of the world that give in to this world and give up the love of my Son. O my little children of light, I give you this message. Carry this light into the darkness for your Mother Mary, for I stood beneath the cross and I cried. I cried for the little ones. I cried for the young ones, the ones that do not care and will lose their souls. How do I make you see for you will not listen to me? What can I do? I come. I appear. I beg. I plead. I give you these gifts from my Son, and you reject me. I do not deliver messages very often anymore for I have been ignored. The message is the same. You do not read the messages I have given to you. Please help me. Help the little children. I appear. I appear. I appear, and I am ignored. I stood beneath the cross, and I cried. I cried, and my Heart was in such anguish for my little children, for I am searching for them this day as I searched for the Child Jesus. Please, please help me. I cannot hold back the hand of my Son any longer. I am Mary, your Mother. I ask you to help my children. You are my children of light.

Song: O Lady of Light, shining so bright, be with us this day, guiding our way, O Lady, O Lady of Light.

Mary speaks: I appear to you as Our Mother of Sorrows.

(End of Mary's Message)


A rosary can be used to pray for healing. It is powerful to unite our prayers to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and pray through the powerful intercession of Our Lady of Clearwater.

In times of trouble, for special prayer, we can use our rosary and pray as follows.

A Rosary for Healing or for Someone with Cancer.

On one Hail Mary bead or as many as you desire, say: 

May God heal                     through the intercession of Our Lady of Clearwater in union with the Mass and all the Masses being celebrated around the world.

Pray the Hail Mary or Hail Mary's then pray this after the Hail Mary.

May the cancer be uprooted and thrown into the sea.

We believe with all our hearts.

After the Glory Be — pray the following petition.

May                     be healed through the intercession of Our Lady of Clearwater if it be the holy will of God.

Note: You can look at Mary on the image rosary while you pray this rosary.

Note: The above section can be printed out from a PDF file, and you can pray the rosary looking at the pictures.

December 17, 2000, Mary speaks:

Help me to circulate my red and blue
    Rosary Books and the
    prayers my Son gives to you.

This is a gift we give you.
All the revelations are gifts given to you.
My Son is the Light of the World.
He is Jesus born in a stable.
Will you help me?
He is the Light of the World. Help me, help me
    reach my children of the world.
