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 11p.m. Eastern time, U.S.A.

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

I appear my children on this former bank building in Florida, Our Lady Clothed with the Sun.

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.

Excerpts from the Rosary of March 2, 2004

Transcribed from the live tape

Jesus speaks:     I come to you this night, My beloved ones,
                                to deliver this message to you.

                            For the fear grips the heart of many,
                                for they do not understand.

                            And I am with you in all of your trials,
                                and speaking to you
                                and telling you what I want you to do,
                                but many do not listen.

                            And My Mother Mary appeared,
                                and appeared,
                                and appeared
                                and you did not listen
                                to the message that she delivered.

                            I appear to you this night
                                to deliver this message.

                            I am Jesus Christ, the Son of God
                                and I speak to you here.

                            I give to you the messages
                                to help spread My Movement,
                                to help renew the Church and the world,
                                to the far ends of the earth.

                            I give you My messages to reach the schools
                                with the school rosary program,
                                and the methods that I tell you to use
                                are blocked by many.

                            But if I speak to you and you do not listen,
                                what should We do
                                that you will hear?
                            For many have their own way.

                            My Mother Mary appeared here everyday
                                for over 7 years
                                and many did not hear
                                nor did they listen,
                                and today I deliver a strong message to you
                                that it is so important
                                that the rosary beads are sent to the schools
                                and the materials are purchased
                                and the rosary made
                                through the rosary makers hands.

                            But although I speak and I ask you to help,
                                so many do not hear,
                                for they focus on the messenger
                                and the other things
                                to justify why they just will not help.

                            Your Mother Mary has spoken
                                many, many, many times
                                and her message has been ignored.

Song from Jesus

Jesus speaks:     Pray to be docile.
                            Pray to be humble.
                            Pray to be open to the will of God.

I Love You Jesus

Mary speaks:      I am Mary your Mother and I saw my Son.

                            He was beaten at the pillar
                                and crowned with thorns.

                            And the blood ran into His eyes
                                and into His ears.

                            But the love, my children, that He had,
                                as He suffered, in His Heart for you
                                and He loves you this much today
                                and I ask you to tell my children in the schools about the rosary,
                                to spread the Red Rosary Book
                                as my Son Jesus has requested
                                and the Blue Book 2,
                                to tell the children during this Lenten season about the Passion,
                                to read about it yourself.

                            I give to you my message, Mary's Message,
                                and I want it circulated to the far ends of the earth
                                by hard copy and by tape
                                that the people will hear the words that I have spoken,
                                for I appear, I appear, I appear
                                and I have been ignored.

                            My school children need the rosary beads
                                in their hands.

                            Such a little request,
                                but the ears of so many are plugged
                                and will not listen
                                and yet it is the same message that I gave to you at Fatima
                                and you did not listen,
                                and so many years later after
                                I appeared, and appeared, and appeared, and appeared,
                                I was ignored.

                            And I ask you, my children,
                                to help to get the rosaries into the schools,
                                through the donations,
                                through the making of rosaries,
                                and giving the kits to many elderly that can help.

                            My children you do not know how much the rosary
                                will help your children and their lives,
                                for the devil is strong and he prowls the earth
                                and he wants the hearts of your children,
                                but you do not listen to me, Mary your Mother.

Ave Maria

Mary speaks:     Oh my children, I have not gone,
                                for I am with you,
                                but you have ignored the messages that I have given.

                            And I tell you again and again to read the messages
                                that I have given and my Son Jesus
                                has given to you,
                                for it is in those messages
                                you will be drawn closer to Our Hearts.

                            Spread the messages to the world that they will know,
                                that they will know the meditations on the rosary,
                                that they will use the rosary,
                                that the rosary will be in the hands of the children
                                and the elderly.

                            The rosary is a most powerful tool.

                            Oh my children,
                                I am Mary your Mother
                                and I love you.

Ave Maria


Spirit Song

Jesus speaks:     My beloved ones, I speak to you and I tell you
                               that I am here and My Mother is here with you.
                               That My Mother has appeared to you to ask you
                               to circulate the rosaries to the schools.

                           And I appear to ask you
                               to circulate the letters of My love
                               and the rosary meditations
                               that I have given to you.

Spirit Song

Hail Mary...

end of excerpt from the Rosary of March 2, 2004



March 16, 2004

Jesus speaks:    My dear people —

                               Trust in Me, I am your God.
                               And a blanket covers the earth, snow white,
                                in one place in the world and
                                the flowers bloom and the sun beats down
                                in another —
                                The bloody slaughter is felt in places of the
                                The peace hangs low, when one is gripped in
                                    their heart with suffering and pain —
                                    deep peace is found in Me —
                                An active alcoholic can be active in a home and some
                                    may have bad days and some good, but as
                                    long as the basic problem is ignored, then
                                    they will suffer at the hands of one controlling
                                    the show.
                                Your world is being run by so many whose hearts
                                    are not rooted in the truth —
                                    I am the Way, the truth and the life —
                                    I am the Alpha and the Omega —
                                    I am your God —
                                Your Mother Mary came a messenger to tell you
                                    how to have peace in your hearts.
                                Pray the rosary, she said —
                                    Meditate on the life of my Son — the New Adam —
                                    Meditate on my life the New Eve —

Mary speaks:         So many live out lives of sin —
                                    imperfections are many in the ways of my
                                I speak and a person wiped out the face
                                    of my image —
                                    who do you call brother — when one
                                    comes and maims my image

                                Oh senseless children of the earth —
                                    The Father sent me as a gift —
                                Oh senseless children — you live in a tight fog —
                                    above the clouds one may see the clear skies —
                                below the waves, on the ocean bottom one
                                    may see the fish swim in the sea
                                Oh that you would open your eyes —
                                    when you fight the current and the
                                        waves you have a struggle —

                                The rain pours —
                                The waves rumble —
                                beneath the surface is
                                    the calm —

                                Look at your earth —
                                    see the waves of hatred coming from
                                        your surface
                                You are in a fog —
                                You are suffering deep beneath the surface —
                                You hide the truth from yourselves —
                                Years of imperfections passed down —
                                    taught to children —

                                My Son is the Perfect Son of the Father —
                                My Son teaches you —
                                You look to others to teach you your
                                    imperfect ways —
                                    Many do not meditate on His Word
                                    Many do not meditate on the Rosary —

                                How can you live your lives like Jesus when
                                    you do not meditate on His life.
                                Jesus came to show you the way.
                                Jesus is love.
                                Jesus loved you so much He died for you.

                                When you meditate on Our Lives, you meditate
                                    on Our lives lived in purity.

                                Oh you deny the words We send you.
                                My Son is the King.
                                Your measuring stick, many of you, is based
                                    on a sinking ship.
                                The fog closes in around you and you do
                                    not see.

                                I am Mary your Mother —
                                Little flakes fall and the children play in the
                                    cold —
                                The sun dances on the water in other parts
                                    of the world —
                                and children play with short sleeved shirts —
                                    wind blows —
                                    calm waters gaily dance with the suns reflection —

                                Oh the temperament of my children —
                                    some so filled with love and humility —
                                    some like a gorged belly filled with hatred,
                                        anger and living in sin

                                Oh children, I appear your Mother to lead you to
                                    my Son Jesus, to see His love, His life lived
                                    in perfection —
                                Your role models, many of you, are the ones who wear
                                    suits that parade their bodies in impure ways
                                    to lure others into sexual encounters.

                                Oh how are you so blind you do not see the devil
                                    as he prowls the earth looking for one to devour.
                                    Your role models are not Our lives in the
                                    rosary, many of your role models are
                                    the greedy, the noisy, the prideful,
                                    the aggressive ones seeking control for their
                                    own recognition — power obtained — not
                                    for the honor and glory of God — not to promote
                                    God's Kingdom here below.



Mary speaks:         Oh my children look into the gentle eyes
                                    of your Mother —
                                    God is all Powerful —
                                    It is in trusting in God you will move ahead —

                                Oh children they broke the image of my face —

                                My face should be forever in your hearts —
                                You have grossly offended your Father in heaven —
                                You have taken a special gift and
                                    maimed my image —
                                I am a messenger sent from God —
                                You crucified my Son Jesus —
                                    you beat His Body —
                                Now you knock off my face in the image
                                    He sent to you —

                                The 5ths were for the blasphemies against me.
                                The 5ths were for the 5 wounds of my Son Jesus.

                                Now the Father gave you this heaven sent
                                    image of me your Mother and
                                    you defaced me —
                                Oh little children, you think you are
                                    mighty  —  God is Divine
                                                    God is All Powerful

                                For 9 years you ignored my desire to come
                                    and pray on the 5ths in honor of
                                    the blasphemies against me and the
                                    5 wounds of Christ. A few from this
                                    whole world came — even after I
                                    appeared on the building —


The Five Blasphemies

There are five blasphemies against Mary. 

1. Blasphemies against the Immaculate Conception.

2. Blasphemies against Her Perpetual Virginity.

3. Blasphemies against Her Divine Maternity, in refusing at the same time to recognize Her as the Mother of men.

4. The blasphemies of those who publicly seek to sow in the hearts of children indifference or scorn, or even hatred of this Immaculate Mother.

5. The offenses of those who outrage Her directly in Her holy images.

Jesus speaks:           Some will never learn, they do not come to
                                    help Me in this mission, they come to
                                    promote themselves.
                                    There were many messengers that blocked
                                        the work of the Shepherds of Christ Movement —
                                        Fr. Carter had to deal with one
                                        promoting such visionaries —
                                        giving messages that were false
                                        for their own honor and glory.

                                    On March 22, 1994, the corner collapsed
                                        at the old seminary in minutes —
                                        one visionary said it was nothing —
                                        when Mary appeared daily to Rita
                                        Ring, one visionary said all visions had
                                        stopped, Mary continued to appear to Rita
                                        Ring despite this false message, the Father 
                                        allowed Mary to appear on the building in
                                        Clearwater for over 7 years daily to promote
                                        this ministry.
                                        Books published to talk about the Shepherds of Christ
                                        Movement that are accurate will come under this
                                        web site — others coming from others without
                                        authority confuse the issues at hand —

Church and the World

Besides being sent to about 75,000 priests and bishops in the U.S.A., the newsletter is sent internationally to about 225 bishops, including 4 cardinals, who distribute copies to all of their priests, and also, in some cases, to their deacons and seminarians.

The newsletter is centered in consecration to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. It features writings regarding our union with Jesus and the Father and the Holy Spirit and Mary. The newsletter also stresses the Eucharist, the Church, prayer, and one's responsibility regarding the social order. The newsletter stresses sound doctrine as found in Scripture, the writings of the Popes and other Church documents. It also presents selected writings from the saints and competent priest-theologians and others.

The newsletter can be used by all for development in the spiritual life centered in consecration.

   The mission of the Shepherds of Christ Movement is closely connected to Our Lady of Fatima's mission. We hope to play a major role in helping to bring fulfillment of the Peace Plan of Our Lady of Fatima. This plan includes:

  1. Consecration to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary—until a sufficient number of people make and live the consecration, we will not have peace in the world.

  2. Praying the rosary.

  3. Observing the First Saturday Devotion.

  4. Making reparation to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

   In helping to bring the Fatima message to completion, the Shepherds of Christ Movement is helping to bring about the Reign of the Sacred Heart and the triumph of the Immaculate Heart. This is a great privilege and a great responsibility! We ask for your prayers and help in other ways also. May God bless you abundantly!


There are seven levels of commitment in the Shepherds of Christ Movement.

  1. There are Associates who gather and pray at least once monthly as a group and also help with donations to support the Shepherds of Christ priestly newsletter. They can be tremendously involved. They give as they feel they are able.

  2. Apostles are members who have restricted their apostolic activity to the Shepherds of Christ. They literally act as a body of lay people who have given their lives in their present living situation to do all that they can to bring about the Reign of the Sacred Heart and the triumph of Mary's Immaculate Heart.

  3. Prayer Apostles are often shut-ins, some are able to go to church and pray. They spend much of their lives praying for the Movement.

  4. Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus are those who spend at least two separate hours weekly before the Blessed Sacrament praying for the following:

  1. For the spread of the devotion to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary culminating in the reign of the Sacred Heart and the triumph of the Immaculate Heart.

  2. For the Pope.

  3. For all bishops of the world.

  4. For all priests.

  5. For all sisters and brothers in the religious life.

  6. For all members of the Shepherds of Christ Movement, and for the spread of this Movement to the world.

  7. For all members of the Catholic Church.

  8. For all members of the human family.

  9. For all souls in purgatory.

  1. Handmaids of the Good Shepherd are young and older women who have given their lives in community primarily to pray for the Shepherds of Christ Movement and intentions and to be special spouses of Jesus. Some have more duties than others. All have the primary duty of prayer and the desire to be a special spouse of our Lord. One of the functions of the handmaids is the involvement in praying for and helping to circulate the priestly newsletter. The handmaids are not members of a religious order.


  2. Servants of the Good Shepherd are men who live in community with a lifestyle and purpose similar to that of the handmaids. The servants are not members of a religious order.

  3. We wish to form a special congregation of priests who will realize their great oneness with Christ. They will be consecrated deeply to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary and support the Shepherds of Christ Movement as holy priests.

   Whatever one's level of commitment in the Shepherds of Christ Movement, all share in promoting the overall goal of the Movement. This goal is to help in the spiritual renewal of the Church and the world. All varied ministries of the Movement are directed toward this purpose. The spirituality which the Shepherds of Christ Movement presents to its members and to those outside the Movement through its various ministries is very basic. This spirituality is explicitly Trinitarian and Christocentric. Our spirituality helps others, especially priests, to develop a very deep union with Jesus, this Jesus Who leads us to the Father in the Holy Spirit with Mary at our side. Our spirituality is deeply Eucharistic. We stress very much participation in the Mass and prayer before the Blessed Sacrament. We also emphasize the extremely important role of prayer in the spiritual life. Devotion to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, especially consecration to Their Hearts, is also a most important and central element. We are very much interested in helping to bring the Fatima message to completion, a message which has consecration to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary at its very core.

Jesus speaks:            Here are the materials available —

                                    I desire purity in all materials.

                                    The Sidney rosary tonight
                                        IS DISCERNED BY A
                                        CATHOLIC PRIEST who
                                        listens and prays as the rosary goes on.

                                    These messages are discerned by a
                                        Catholic priest.

                                    When I give messages, that is not the same
                                        as some man coming with a
                                        good idea.
                                        The devil uses this to create confusion.

                                    The devil is strong.

Messenger:             I just want to be with You Jesus.
                                I want all in the world to recognize You as King.
                                I want all to do God's will.

Mary speaks:         I tell you to pray the rosary —
                                I tell you to consecrate your hearts to
                                the Sacred Heart and my Immaculate Heart.


2 Samuel 24: 10-25

But afterwards David’s heart misgave him for having taken a census of the people. David then said to Yahweh, ‘I have committed a grave sin by doing this. But now, Yahweh, I beg you to forgive your servant for this fault, for I have acted very foolishly.’ When, however, David got up next morning, the following message had come from Yahweh to the prophet Gad, David’s seer, ‘Go and say to David, "Yahweh says this: I offer you three things; choose which one of them I am to inflict on you." ’ So Gad went to David and said, ‘Which do you prefer: to have three years of famine befall your country; to flee for three months before a pursuing army; or to have three days of epidemic in your country? Now think, and decide how I am to answer him who sends me.’ David said to Gad, ‘I am very apprehensive . . . Better to fall into Yahweh’s hands, since his mercies are great, than to fall into the hands of men!’ So David chose the epidemic. 

    It was the time of the wheat harvest. So Yahweh unleashed an epidemic on Israel from that morning until the time determined; plague ravaged the people and, of the people from Dan to Beersheba, seventy thousand died. But when the angel stretched his hand towards Jerusalem to destroy it, Yahweh felt sorry about the calamity and said to the angel who was destroying the people, ‘Enough now! Hold your hand!’ The angel of Yahweh was standing by the threshing–floor of Araunah the Jebusite. When David saw the angel who was ravaging the people, he said to Yahweh, ‘I was the one who sinned. I was the one who acted wrongly. But these, the flock, what have they done? Let your hand lie heavy on me and on my family!’

Gad went to David that day and said, ‘Go up and raise an altar to Yahweh on the threshing–floor of Araunah the Jebusite.’ So, at Gad’s bidding, David went up, as Yahweh had ordered. When Araunah looked up and saw the king and his retinue advancing towards him—Araunah was threshing the wheat—Araunah came forward and prostrated himself on the ground at the king’s feet. ‘Why has my lord the king come to his servant?’ Araunah asked. David replied, ‘To buy the threshing–floor from you, to build an altar to Yahweh, so that the plague may be lifted from the people.’ Araunah said to David, ‘Let my lord the king take it and make what offerings he thinks fit. Here are the oxen for the burnt offering, the threshing–sleds and the oxen’s yokes for the wood. My lord the king’s servant will give the king everything. And’, Araunah said to the king, ‘may Yahweh your God accept what you offer!’ 

    ‘No,’ said the king to Araunah, ‘I shall give you a price for it; I will not offer Yahweh my God burnt offerings which have cost me nothing.’ David bought the threshing–floor and the oxen for fifty shekels of silver. David built an altar to Yahweh and offered burnt offerings and communion sacrifices. Yahweh then took pity on the country and the plague was lifted from Israel.


Messenger:                 Oh God we are sorry for our sins.


Excerpts from The Spirituality of Fatima

by Father Carter, S.J.

May 13, 1917 

    "Do not be afraid, I will do you no harm..... I am from Heaven.

    "I have come to ask you to come here for six months in succession, on the 13th day, at the same hour. Later on, I will tell you who I am and what I want

    "Are you willing to offer yourselves to God and bear all the sufferings He wills to send you, as an act of reparation for the sins by which He is offended, and in supplication for the conversion of sinners?

    "Pray the Rosary every day in order to obtain peace for the world, and the end of the war." (8)


June 13, 1917

    "God wishes you to remain in the world for some time because He wants to use you to establish in the world the devotion to my Immaculate Heart. I promise salvation to those who embrace it, and their souls will be loved by God as flowers placed by myself to adorn His throne." (10)


July 13, 1917

    "During her appearance in July, Our Lady, in answer to Lucia's plea, promised that in October she would work a great miracle so that all might believe and know who she was. Again, the Mother of God told the children to sacrifice themselves for sinners and to say many times, especially when making a sacrifice, this prayer: "O my Jesus, I offer this for love of Thee, for the conversion of poor sinners, and in reparation for all the sins committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary." (11)

    "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)


August 19, 1917

    She told them she was greatly displeased by the action of the mayor. As a result, the miracle promised for October would not be as impressive as originally planned. (15)


September 13, 1917

    More than 30,000 people were present in September, and saw a shower of mysterious white petals fall to within 10 feet of the ground before dissolving into the air. Many also saw the globe of light bearing the Lady come to rest atop the tree, and the branches bend as though someone were standing on them. Later, they saw the cloud depart into the east, from whence it had come.(16)


October 13, 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.(17)

    While the people in attendance were beholding the great Miracle of the Sun, the three young visionaries, and they alone, were privileged to see striking visions in the heavens:

    As Our Lady had promised, St. Joseph had come with the Holy Family and had blessed the world. Then, Our Lady appeared as the Mother of Sorrows, accompanied by her Divine Son, Who also blessed the world. Finally, Lucy had seen the Blessed Virgin, dressed in the brown robes of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, crowned as Queen of Heaven and Earth, holding a brown Scapular in her hand, with her infant Son upon her knee. However, in none of these visions had any of the figures spoken to the children. (18)

    Besides the messages associated with the major Fatima apparitions, there were other revelations given by Our Lady. Before Jacinta died, she told of other messages given her (during her illness) by Mary:

    More souls go to Hell because of sins of the flesh than for any other reason.

    Certain fashions will be introduced that will offend Our Lord very much.

    Many marriages are not good; they do not please Our Lord and are not of God.

    Priests must be pure, very pure. They should not busy themselves with anything except what concerns the Church and souls. The disobedience of priests, to their superiors and to the Holy Father, is very displeasing to Our Lord.

    I can no longer restrain the hand of my Divine Son from striking the world with just punishments for its many crimes.

    If the government of a country leaves the Church in peace and gives liberty to our Holy Religion, it will be blessed by God.

    Tell everybody that God gives graces through the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Tell them to ask grace from her, and that the Heart of Jesus wishes to be venerated together with the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Ask them to plead for peace from the Immaculate Heart of Mary, for the Lord has confided the peace of the world to her. (19)

1 Kings 1: 28-37

King David then spoke. ‘Call Bathsheba to me,’ he said. And she came into the king’s presence and stood before him. Then the king swore this oath, ‘As Yahweh lives, who has delivered me from all adversity, just as I swore to you by Yahweh, God of Israel, that your son Solomon should be king after me and take my place on my throne, so I shall bring it about this very day.’ Bathsheba knelt down, prostrated herself on her face before the king and said, ‘May my lord King David live for ever!’ Then King David said, ‘Summon Zadok the priest, the prophet Nathan and Benaiah son of Jehoiada.’ So they came into the king’s presence. ‘Take the royal guard with you,’ said the king, ‘mount my son Solomon on my own mule and escort him down to Gihon. There Zadok the priest and the prophet Nathan are to anoint him king of Israel; then sound the trumpet and shout, "Long live King Solomon!" Then you are to escort him back, and he is then to assume my throne and be king in place of me, for he is the man whom I have appointed as ruler of Israel and of Judah.’ Benaiah son of Jehoiada answered the king. ‘Amen!’ he said. ‘And may Yahweh, God of my lord the king, confirm it! As Yahweh has been with my lord the king, so may he be with Solomon and make his throne even greater than the throne of my lord King David!’


Messenger:             Oh God forgive us for our sins.


1 Kings 17: 1-6  

Elijah the Tishbite, of Tishbe in Gilead, said to Ahab, ‘By the life of Yahweh, God of Israel, whom I serve, there will be neither dew nor rain these coming years unless I give the word.’

The word of Yahweh came to him, ‘Go away from here, go east and hide by the torrent of Cherith, east of the Jordan. You can drink from the stream, and I have ordered the ravens to bring you food there.’ So he set out and did as Yahweh had said; he went and stayed by the torrent of Cherith, east of the Jordan. The ravens brought him bread in the morning and meat in the evening, and he quenched his thirst at the stream.


Hosea 12: 1-2

Ephraim besieges me with lying, 
the House of Israel with duplicity. 
(But Judah still is on God’s side, 
he is faithful to the Holy One.) 
Ephraim feeds himself on wind, 
all day he chases the wind from the East, 
he heaps up cheating and violence; 
they make a treaty with Assyria, 
at the same time sending oil to Egypt.


God the Father speaks:

                                Oh rise up Jerusalem, your time has come —
                                You will feast on the cakes of the land
                                    and eat until you are full —
                                But first a famine will occur —
                                    men's hearts will ache with pain —
                                    bleeding and begging God for mercy.

                                Oh people of Jerusalem, repent —
                                    stop offending your God —
                                    Your children are being poisoned —
                                    You feed them dung from the heap —
                                    And I give you My richest
                                        flavors, the food of Kings and
                                        you spit it from your
                                        mouths and search for pursuits
                                        of those motivated by their animal drives —

                                Reach for heavenly pursuits —
                                    One mama walks with the babies and is joyful
                                    Another cradles the sick child longing
                                        to hear her speak in love —

                                Oh Rachel wailed —
                                Oh the women lamented —
                                Oh the children cried AND
                                Is it any different today —
                                For I send your Mother a messenger
                                    for seven years and you did not
                                    You shot off her face —


Mary'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.

God the Father speaks:

                                Oh the head of the serpent is
                                    crushed by the heel of the
                                    Lady clothed with the sun
                                Your world is so "topsy-turvy" —
                                    you defaced the woman, the Lady
                                        Clothed with the sun —



Genesis Chapter 3

The Fall

Now, the snake was the most subtle of all the wild animals that Yahweh God had made. It asked the woman, 'Did God really say you were not to eat from any of the trees in the garden?' The woman answered the snake, 'We may eat the fruit of the trees in the garden. But of the fruit of the tree in the middle of the garden God said, "You must not eat it, nor touch it, under pain of death." ' Then the snake said to the woman, 'No! You will not die! God knows in fact that the day you eat it your eyes will be opened and you will be like gods, knowing good from evil.' The woman saw that the tree was good to eat and pleasing to the eye, and that it was enticing for the wisdom that it could give. So she took some of its fruit and ate it. She also gave some to her husband who was with her, and he ate it. Then the eyes of both of them were opened and they realised that they were naked. So they sewed fig-leaves together to make themselves loin-cloths.

The man and his wife heard the sound of Yahweh God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid from Yahweh God among the trees of the garden. But Yahweh God called to the man. 'Where are you?' he asked. 'I heard the sound of you in the garden,' he replied. 'I was afraid because I was naked, so I hid.' 'Who told you that you were naked?' he asked. 'Have you been eating from the tree I forbade you to eat?' The man replied, 'It was the woman you put with me; she gave me some fruit from the tree, and I ate it.' Then Yahweh God said to the woman, 'Why did you do that?' The woman replied, 'The snake tempted me and I ate.'

Then Yahweh God said to the snake, 'Because you have done this,

    Accursed be you
    of all animals wild and tame!
    On your belly you will go
    and on dust you will feed
    as long as you live.
    I shall put enmity
    between you and the woman,
    and between your offspring and hers;
    it will bruise your head
    and you will strike its heel.'

    To the woman he said:

    I shall give you intense pain
        in childbearing,
    you will give birth to your children
        in pain.
    Your yearning will be for your husband,
    and he will dominate you.

To the man he said, 'Because you listened to the voice of your wife and ate from the tree of which I had forbidden you to eat,

    Accursed be the soil because of you!
    Painfully will you get your food from it
    as long as you live.
    It will yield you brambles and thistles,
    as you eat the produce of the land.
    By the sweat of your face

    will you earn you food,
    until you return to the ground,
    as you were taken from it.
    For dust you are
    and to dust you shall return.

The man named his wife 'Eve' because she was the mother of all those who live. Yahweh God made tunics of skins for the man and his wife and clothed them. Then Yahweh God said, 'Now that the man has become like one of us in knowing good from evil, he must not be allowed to reach out his hand and pick from the tree of life too, and eat and live for ever!' So Yahweh God expelled him from the garden of Eden, to till the soil from which he had been taken. He banished the man, and in front of the garden of Eden he posted the great winged creatures and the fiery flashing sword, to guard the way to the tree of life.




God the Father speaks:

                                Oh Jerusalem —
                                    You do not know Me —
                                    I am a God of justice —
                                    You have defiled My Word —
                                    You have done more than
                                        make the lady cry —
                                        you wiped her face off —

                                YOU IGNORED HER

                                    SHE APPEARED 

                                    DAILY for 7 years


Revelation Chapter 12

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. Then a second sign appeared in the sky: there was a huge red dragon with seven heads and ten horns, and each of the seven heads crowned with a coronet. Its tail swept a third of the stars from the sky and hurled them to the ground, and the dragon stopped in front of the woman as she was at the point of giving birth, so that it could eat the child as soon as it was born. The woman was delivered of a boy, the son who was to rule all the nations with an iron scepter, and the child was taken straight up to God and to his throne, while the woman escaped into the desert, where God had prepared a place for her to be looked after for twelve hundred and sixty days.

    And now war broke out in heaven, when Michael with his angels attacked the dragon. The dragon fought back with his angels, but they were defeated and driven out of heaven. The great dragon, the primeval serpent, known as the devil or Satan, who had led all the world astray, was hurled down to the earth and his angels were hurled down with him. Then I heard a voice shout from heaven, 'Salvation and power and empire for ever have been won by our God, and all authority for his Christ, now that the accuser, who accused our brothers day and night before our God, has been brought down. They have triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word to which they bore witness, because even in the face of death they did not cling to life. So let the heavens rejoice and all who live there; but for you, earth and sea, disaster is coming-- because the devil has gone down to you in a rage, knowing that he has little time left.'

    As soon as the dragon found himself hurled down to the earth, he sprang in pursuit of the woman, the mother of the male child, but she was given a pair of the great eagle's wings to fly away from the serpent into the desert, to the place where she was to be looked after for a time, two times and half a time. So the serpent vomited water from his mouth, like a river, after the woman, to sweep her away in the current, but the earth came to her rescue; it opened its mouth and swallowed the river spewed from the dragon's mouth. Then the dragon was enraged with the woman and went away to make war on the rest of her children, who obey God's commandments and have in themselves the witness of Jesus.

Your Bridegroom Waits for You

February 11, 1994 4:00 a.m.

Note: This letter was given by Jesus for a talk at St. Clare Convent

You are being tested in fire. What comes forth is a sinner or a saint. I want you holy like saints, untainted. Even the smallest sin offends My aching heart.

R. He is calling us to holiness and sainthood.

Jesus: I am the Alpha, the Omega. I am your All. You worry for such needless tasks when I am Jesus and I am in your midst.

The world is being led away from God. It has become a godless society.

Satan gets in in little things and you forget how holy I want you to be in Me. I want you to be saints. I call you to commitment to sainthood. Every action should be seen as "how will this action enhance my love of Jesus and the love of Jesus in others?"

R. I am being called every moment to preach the gospel. I preach His words in my very being. How am I in my life today? When I stand in the presence of others, does my love of God shine from my very soul? I am the preacher of the God Who lives within. Do I preach the word of God in the love I give to all of my brothers? Is God truly shining from me?

Jesus: I, My children, call you to be Me to this world. This world has deceived itself in every way to all sin. They have watched television and movies turn right to wrong and wrong to right.

I preach to you this day: what is right is right and what is wrong is wrong! The world preaches deception and untruth. To be in the world is to become very sick. You can no longer straddle the fence and be of Me. You are either Godly or worldly. To remain fixed to this world, to try to make sense of a sick, godless society, is to become sick and godless yourself.

Yes, My little ones, I call you to sainthood. I call you every waking moment of your day to preach the word of God. My love within you should be a force mightier than any explosion. It is a force that can never be contained.

As you, through the Holy Eucharist and adoration, sit with Me, you bake as in an oven. You receive My power in your baking. You store up, as in a battery, a power that is emitted from your very being. I, little ones, have all the power. In one second I could snatch you from your comfort and take your breath away. What, little ones, is keeping you from your sainthood?

Is it the way you treat your brothers? Do you say, "Oh, it doesn't matter that I am cold"? Is it a hidden sin that you keep ever so slight, but tell yourself it doesn't matter? Do you talk about others and fail to see Me inside of their hearts?

Remember, My little ones, you are My chosen ones. I love you with a burning, ardent love. I never ever leave your side for one second. You are My workers in this cold world. Your brothers may never be touched except as you preach My gospel. Their souls may depend on how you emit My love from your heart.

"But," you say, "Lord, Lord, I don't want to be nice to that nasty person. I will just be tolerant and not nasty back."

I, Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God, say I call you, My chosen ones, to a life of sainthood and holiness. You are the preachers of My gospel. You are My hands. You are My heart. You are Me, dwelling and living in this world.

Those in darkness may never be touched unless you, My special ones, choose first the kingdom of God and choose to love the unloving.

Yes, I say, love the unloving! I call you to sainthood, My little ones. I call you to let Me possess your soul and operate from your very being.

When I died on the cross, My arms were open wide. My whole position on the cross was that of greatest surrender. I call you to this surrender. Hold not back your feeble hearts. Open wide the gates and let My love pour from your very souls. Do not come to Me with your arms closed or open halfway. Come as I came to you. The way to Me is the Way of the Cross.

Feel the love of Jesus deep in your breast. Meditate on Me, hanging so selflessly on the cross for love of you. I am Jesus, Son of God, I loved you to My death. I love you this same way this very day. Sweet one, if you were the only one, I would die for you alone this very day.

I am this same Jesus. I am in your midst. I live and dwell in your brothers. I come to you, Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity, in Holy Communion and in the tabernacle. I am Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God! I am alive in your hearts.

You come to Me in Holy Communion. I wait, I long for your union with Me. I am your ardent lover. I pour out to you the same love I had for you the day I died on the cross.

You come and I shower you with My love. Stay with Me after Communion. Sit with Me. These are My most golden moments to shower My love on you.

You, My little ones, busy yourself with such senseless tasks. I am Jesus, the King of Glory! I am the King of the Kingdom of Heaven and I come to you, My little sweet ones. I humble Myself and come to you. What do you receive? You, in Holy Communion, receive Jesus, God-made-man.

Oh, how are you today? The tongue is the doorway to the soul. How is your tongue? Is it worthy for such a King?

Who are you that Jesus, Son of God, comes to you? You, My child, are My beloved. You are he who is unworthy to tie My bootstraps, but I come to you with such love and longing and give Myself to you. Is your tongue pure? Have you been holy in your speech about others? Have you used your tongue to preach My love? Is your tongue worthy for the King of Heaven?

I give you such honor, such dignity. I, God, long to be united to you in Holy Communion. I came to earth and died a brutal death for you, for love of you. I, in total surrender, holding nothing back, chose to spread My arms in total submission and die for you. Do I love you any less today? I am Jesus, Son of the Living God. I love you today the same as the day I died for you. I spread My arms in total surrender and gave My all for love of you.

Can you refuse Me when I ask you to love one another? How did you preach My gospel today? How was My love given to your brothers?

My sweet ones, My life I gave that you might live and have life eternal. Life here is but a fleeting moment. It is like a billowing smoke, black and thick, and then, poof, it is gone and there is no trace! Such a few years here for such a great reward!

The Kingdom of God waits for you. What a treasure! You possess the keys to the Kingdom. They are found in the love in your hearts. You will inherit a reward far beyond any comprehension. You will be escorted by a heavenly court into My kingdom. You will see the face of God and you will live. This is but a test--a fleeting moment--for such glory!

R.You are being called. This is the school of learning to be Christ-like. You go to school every day. You are given tests all day. The test in Christ's school are hard. Did He do any less for you? He modeled His life for us.

You take the tests, you receive the divine reward, graduation into the kingdom of God.

Jesus: Will you, My little ones, be My soldiers in this cold world? I call you to two things: love of God and love of one another. Will you come to Me with all the great acts of love you gave to your brothers? Will you be My hands to the sick world?

I do not call you to mighty feats. I call you to love one another. Too simple you say? Too hard for too many! The way to Me is hard, but rewarding. Walk My path, follow My direction. To My death I loved you, My little ones. I am the author of love. I showed you the way. When they persecuted Me and hit Me, beat Me, bruised Me, bloodied Me, I loved them. To My death My thoughts were of you when I gave you My sweet mother. I showed you the way to love. Will you follow in My path?

Your job is to love not the nice ones only, but to love all your brothers. Your love will be the seeds that you plant today. Smile the biggest smiles. You possess the life of Jesus within you. You possess the true treasure. You will see the face of God and live!

Your job is clear. Love God and one another. Do not busy yourself with needless tasks. Come to Me. Come to Me in Communion. Come in Adoration. Let Me shower you with My love. You are filled to the brim and you come from a place of giving love rather than needing love.

Oh, My sweet ones, My chosen ones, I wait for you with My love in the tabernacle. I wait for you with your arms for this cold world. Your arms in this cold war are your hearts filled with My love. You cannot be My soldiers of love in this world if you do not first seek your union with Me. It is in the silence before the tabernacle that I minister to you. Come and do not be busy. Let Me fill you with My love.

My Heart is on fire with love of you. I give this to you in the Eucharist and in front of the tabernacle. I am there, Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity. Come and get your arms, get your supplies. You are going into battle in this world. You are battling evil and hate. You need your ammunition and it is found in Me. Come and I will give you your arms--My love.

Oh, how I love you. I ache in My heart for your love. You do not know how I ache to behold each of you. Please come. It is in the greatest love that I am locked up in the tabernacle. Come, please, I beg you. I love you. I want you to come. I am Jesus, Son of God and I am waiting for you this very day.

Come to Me and I will give you all you need. I love you. Jesus.

Do you know that I have all the power? Look at the earth, covered with ice. Do you control such things? Stopped dead in your tracks, are you? Do you still think you have control in your immobility?

What does it take to shake you in your comfort zone? Who will get the message to you? I am Jesus. I am God. God has all the power. Do you pray now in your idleness with this weather or do you busy your mind with more senseless tasks?

Oh, what do you need to turn you from your ways? I come and dwell in your midst and you ignore Me and look for other things to fill the weary soul.

Man, nothing fills your soul. I and I alone am what you seek. You look in all the wrong places and I wait for you in the tabernacle. If you knew of this unseen world! But you are blind and dumb and stay centered as if in a tunnel.

Pray for your sick brothers. They have been blinded by the world and numbed by the TV. Their hearts are cold and their heads are hot. Oh, what a sad state! Pray for them lest they lose their souls. This world is full of evil. Come to Me. Sit in silence and know My love. I am your refuge.

In My church, in front of My tabernacle, there is such peace and joy. I am your King. I am your God. I am your Lord. I am Who am. I am your all. Little ones, little ones, I lament the loss of your love. Come to Me and be wrapped in My arms. I love you. Alleluia

Eye has not seen, ear has not heard, what God has ready for those who Love Him.

Promote yourself? Where do you go when your life is done? You flunk the test when you see yourself as the end. Die to yourself and you will possess life eternal.

I love you so. Such pride, such arrogance! Who do they think they are? They think they are their own gods. This is against the First Commandment.

In all things, turn your lives to God. Give Him full reign. You possess the choice to inherit a kingdom! Oh, such blindness! I love you in all your blindness, just the same. Pray for your brothers that the light of Christ might shine through you and touch their cold hearts.

Be as My saints, holy and untainted. Hold tight to My kingdom. It is at hand and you are its rightful heirs. Alleluia.

R. Jesus, tuck me into the recesses of Your heart and let me live in there with You in Your heart. Swallow me up in a little pocket. I love You so!

I give You my mind. I give You my body. I give You my soul. I am wed to You, my entirety to be Your spouse. I want to be the bride of Jesus Christ. My soul must be as white as the brightest white for such a king. I give myself to You, body and soul. I want to be Your saint. I want to do Your will and Your will alone. I want to be totally united with You in all my thoughts. I want to be pure just for You. Bless me and all those I touch.

I remain in You, ever to do Your work. I am Your temple and You dwell within me with such holiness! I approach the altar of Jesus and behold my beloved. I say to You, "Lord, Thy will be done," yet, when the going gets rough, I do my own will. Let me constantly be connected to You, Jesus, that with every beat of my heart I may never shame You in my thoughts or actions, that I do Thy will directly as I am prompted to do. I love You and You are my beloved. Alleluia.

I have committed myself to the King and I am an heir to the kingdom. It is in this constant walk of faith that I come into His presence, constantly committing my will to do His so only that which is of Him will flow from my soul.

Alleluia. Praise Him, holiest in the heights, for He is all powerful and He sets my feet on solid ground. Seek and you will find. Knock and it will be opened unto you. Make ready your hearts for Him, the King of Glory. He is worthy of such honor. He is God. Alleluia.

My Kingdom Is At Hand

February 6, 1994 5:00 a.m.

Jesus:  This is all fruitless, My children. I am your God. All your endeavors are of no account if they do not have their reference to Me. You can run down many roads at such a fast pace but the only road that counts is the road that leads to My Sacred Heart. You hold on to this and that and tomorrow your life may be snatched from you! If you knew you would die tomorrow, would any of what you hold on to be so important?

Ready your hearts for the kingdom of God. My Kingdom is at hand. You hold useless treasures in your hands while the King of Glory waits. I am King of the Kingdom you seek. I am ardently waiting for you in the tabernacle. My heart is afire, ablaze for love of you. My heart yearns and longs for you as the most ardent lover, yet you, My little ones, do not come. It wounds My aching heart. I want you so much to come and sit with Me. Do you not hear the cry of your lover? Yet you pay no heed to Me and when I give you Myself in Communion you come with a cold heart. Oh, My aching heart, to love so much and be rejected by you!

I am the King of the Kingdom you seek. My Kingdom is not of this world. Where do you go for your wares when I have all you need? Come to Me and receive all you seek. Come to Me and be filled. Come to Me and get everything that is of any account.

I am Jesus. I am the Son of God. I sit and wait and you run down senseless roads! I am on fire with love of you. I wait for you, I long for you, I want you and you say, "No, Lord". Oh, My aching heart, how it hurts for love of you!

Come, My little ones, come and be wrapped in the arms of Him Who loves you ardently. Do not run after your needless tasks. You do not have to do anything in this world but seek My kingdom. This is your focus. This is all that is of any account.

You seek, you search, you wander, you run down roads that lead nowhere at such speeds and your love waits. I know the very workings of your heart. I ponder you and know you far better than yourselves. I loved you to My death and I wait for you with an intense, ardent love. Come and let Me show you real love, My love. It is not fleeting. It does not last a moment. It lasts forever!

Come, come, come to your love. I wait for you. Come and let Me give you all you need. When I am the center of your life, you will have all you need.

I love you. Jesus.

Notes: At 6:30 a.m. I saw a vision of children, two adults by their side, walking together in a group. One adult in front was wearing a scarf on a tweed coat. She had brown hair which was curled. She turned and had her hand on a child. She was leading them. The other adult was in the back. There were about 20 to 25 kids on a street. They all had their coats and they had just turned the corner.

Jesus: Lead the children to the love of Jesus. Lead My priests and sisters to My infinite love. My love is abounding to all. My love is on fire for everyone. On fire! You must tell them. Speak for Me. All must know of this intense love for them. I am the Way, the Truth and the Life.

See the children will be led home. Their hearts will know My love. I want you to speak in front of groups about My love.

10 Years Ago

Picture of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

My Heart Aches for You

March 13, 1994 5:45 p.m.

R. I was overtaken by an intense unrest. I was compelled to go to the tabernacle. I felt such suffering, suffering that Jesus suffered so for us and that everyone is so busy about their lives. Suffering for the indifference to Him and how He loves us despite our neglect! It was awful. I felt as I had on Christmas.

Jesus: I am the Lord, thy God. Thou shalt not have any gods before Me. I must be first in your life.

R. If you place any woman, man, children, food, clothing or any other little things above Him, you are not doing His will.

Jesus: I died for you, sweet one. I allow you to suffer. This is suffering. You are given this to know how I suffered. You I only give such little things. I suffered, sweet one. I suffered, bloodied, bruised and beaten. Blood rolled down My cheeks. My head was pierced with sharp thorns. They spat on Me. They whipped Me. They beat Me on My head, My precious head. They hit Me on My thorns and the pain was so intense--the piercing thorns! I was slapped hard by these senseless ones. Oh, such evil in the hearts of those who beat Me, the Son of God!

My whole Body ached from head to toe. I suffered so, My child. You will never know how I suffered for love of you. I am God and I loved all My precious ones to My death--and they ignore Me!

Oh, how I suffer from this wounded heart. They will never know what love I have to give them. They will never know how I, God, love them. They are so busy with their worldly lives!

You must tell them how I wait for them. I wait. I want them to come and I will give them such love! Tell them, Rita, tell them! Your discontent is from what emotions I give you and you keep them inside. I want all to know Me and My love. I am crying out to you, little one. Tell them, tell them. Do not waste any time. I am crying out for you to spread this message. I want you to tell all of My love and how I am waiting. Emotion! Emotion! I am crying out to you in your heart!

I long for their love. I died for them. How do I make them know if you, to whom I speak, hold back? I want you to get the messages out, child.

I loved all My beloved ones to My death. I love you this way this day. I am Jesus. I am begging you to not hold back this emotion.

Oh, child, My beloved ones are blind and are going down the road that leads to nowhere. You must preach My message. You must distribute My letters. You must tell all how I wait here!

Go to My faithful ones. Spread the messages at the Center. Keep them in your car. You will be called on in an instant and I will speak My message to My beloved ones through you.

Ready yourself for a big boom. No one is listening. I am crying out to you. Prepare your brothers. They are in darkness. Their souls are dying inside of them. Some come to Me with such indifference in Communion.

I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I am on fire for love of them. I am Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God. I call you to this state of urgency. Move your friends by this urgent letter. There is no more time to waste. I call you all here to deliver this message personally to you. I am Jesus. I am begging each of you to spread My message. Tell them of My ardent love. In each moment you waste, souls will be lost.

I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I am your God. I am calling to you. Will you listen or will you be numb to My pleading? I yearn for your love. Come and sit with Me every day. Sit in front of My tabernacle so I can give you what you need. Pray the Prayer for Union with Jesus.

I am Jesus, the Son of God. I cry out to you to preach My love. Spread these messages. Tell all you meet that I, Jesus, am alone. I am in your midst and I love you this very day. I wait for you in the tabernacle. Come and be with Me every day. This is all that you need. I give you everything. All will work when you come to Me to get your supplies.

Come to Mass and Communion daily. I wait for you to come and be in union with Me. I want to be so close to you. I love you all and I am asking you each to busy yourself about your love affair with Me. Make Me first in your life. Give Me all you are. Pray My Prayer for Union all through the day.

It is your union with Me that will change this world. You will light the lights of the souls in darkness. They will see the might of God in your soul. Energy will be emitted from your very being. You will be as you are, My most important workers, just in your being, if you surrender and be about our love affair!

It's so simple. Come to Me, be united in Communion, pray with Me in silence after Communion, pray to the Holy Spirit for all of His gifts. Pray, lay hands on each other for strength. I am Jesus. I am alive. I will live in you in such a way that you will do such wonders, just in your being more in love with Me.

I love you all dearly. Open yourselves. Be selfless and let Me possess your soul! I love you. Jesus



Mysteries of Light



                                Baptism of Jesus

                           1. Matthew 3: 13-16

Then Jesus appeared: he came from Galilee to the Jordan to be baptised by John. John tried to dissuade him, with the words, ‘It is I who need baptism from you, and yet you come to me!’ But Jesus replied, ‘Leave it like this for the time being; it is fitting that we should, in this way, do all that uprightness demands.’ Then John gave in to him. 

    And when Jesus had been baptised he at once came up from the water, and suddenly the heavens opened and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and coming down on him. 

                           2. Matthew 3: 17

And suddenly there was a voice from heaven, ‘This is my Son, the Beloved; my favour rests on him.’

                           3. God gives us the gift of baptism.
                           4. God wants us with Him forever in heaven.
                           5. Jesus is the Light of the World.
                           6. Jesus is the New Adam.
                           7. Mary is the New Eve.
                           8. God wants us to drink from the
                                fountain of salvation.
                           9. God gives us a special sharing
                                in His life through baptism.
                         10. Oh God pardon our sins and grant us





                           Marriage at Cana

                           1. John 2: 3-10

     And they ran out of wine, since the wine provided for the feast had all been used, and the mother  of Jesus said to him, ‘They have no wine.’ Jesus said, ‘Woman, what do you want from me? My hour has not come yet.’ His mother said to the servants, ‘Do whatever he tells you.’ There were six stone water jars standing there, meant for the ablutions that are customary among the Jews: each could hold twenty or thirty gallons. Jesus said to the servants, ‘Fill the jars with water,’ and they filled them to the brim. Then he said to them, ‘Draw some out now and take it to the president of the feast.’ They did this; the president tasted the water, and it had turned into wine. Having no idea where it came from—though the servants who had drawn the water knew—the president of the feast called the bridegroom and said, ‘Everyone serves good wine first and the worse wine when the guests are well wined; but you have kept the best wine till now.’

                           2. Jesus performed so many miracles.
                           3. Jesus fed 5 thousand.

                           4. John 6: 11

Then Jesus took the loaves, gave thanks, and distributed them to those who were sitting there; he then did the same with the fish, distributing as much as they wanted

Matthew 18: 12

‘Tell me. Suppose a man has a hundred sheep and one of them
    strays; will he not leave the ninety–nine on the hillside and go in
    search of the stray?

                           6. Jesus walked on the water.

                           7. John 6: 19

They had rowed three or four miles when they saw Jesus walking on the sea and coming towards the boat. They were afraid,

                           8. Jesus cured.  

                           9. Matthew 8: 7-8

Jesus said to him, ‘I will come myself and cure him.’8The centurion replied, ‘Sir, I am not worthy to have you under my roof; just give the word and my servant will be cured

                           10. God is Divine. Jesus is the Son of God
                                when Jesus came to the earth
                                He healed the sick, He raised
                                people from the dead, He changed
                                water into wine.






                           Kingdom of God

                           1. 1 Chronicles 29: 10

for who am I and what is my people, for us to be able to volunteer offerings like this?—since everything has come from you and we have given you only what you bestowed in the first place,

                           6. Isaiah 2: 2

It will happen in the final days 
that the mountain of Yahweh’s house 
will rise higher than the mountains 
and tower above the heights. 
Then all the nations will stream to it,

                           7. Isaiah 2: 3

many peoples will come to it and say, 
‘Come, let us go up 
    to the mountain of Yahweh, 
to the house of the God of Jacob 
that he may teach us his ways 
so that we may walk in his paths.’ 
For the Law will issue from Zion 
and the word of Yahweh from Jerusalem.

                           8. Isaiah 2: 4-5

Then he will judge between the nations 
and arbitrate between many peoples. 
They will hammer their swords 
    into ploughshares 
and their spears into sickles. 
Nation will not lift sword against nation, 
no longer will they learn how to make war. 

House of Jacob, come, 
    let us walk in Yahweh’s light.

                          9. Luke 11: 1-4 

Now it happened that he was in a certain place praying, and when he had finished, one of his disciples said, ‘Lord, teach us to pray, as John taught his disciples.’ He said to them, ‘When you pray, this is what to say: 

    Father, may your name be held holy, 
    your kingdom come; 
    give us each day our daily bread, 
    and forgive us our sins, 
    for we ourselves forgive each one 
        who is in debt to us. 
    And do not put us to the test.’

                          10. Acts 1: 3

He had shown himself alive to them after his Passion by many demonstrations: for forty days he had continued to appear to them and tell them about the kingdom of God.







                           1. Matthew 17: 2-3

There in their presence he was transfigured: his face shone like the sun and his clothes became as dazzling as light. And suddenly Moses and Elijah appeared to them; they were talking with him.

                           2. Jesus is the Light of the World.

                           3. Jesus gives us Himself in the Holy Eucharist.

                           4. God wants us to grow to be more
                                likened to Him.

                                It is the fire of His love in our
                                breasts that will warm the cold

                          4. To His death on the cross, He loved
                                us. This is action from the
                                heart. No little love.

                           5. Song: I Love You Jesus

                           6. Song: Your Presence Pervades My Soul

                           7. We are raised to such heights by
                                His love for us. He gives us
                                dignity. He gives us direction
                                we must come and bow down
                                before Him for He is deserving
                                of all honor and praise.

                           8. God's Blue Book 2 - January 13, 1994 3:45 a.m.

R. You are the God of all ages. You are Father, Son and Holy Ghost. At Your name the heavens bow and the earth is summoned to give glory to the one, true God. He is a King in our midst and we are honored by Him and His glory.

                           9. Prayer for Union with Jesus

    Come to me, Lord, and possess my soul. Come into my heart and permeate my soul. Help me to sit in silence with You and let You work in my heart.

    I am Yours to possess. I am Yours to use. I want to be selfless and only exist in You. Help me to spoon out all that is me and be an empty vessel ready to be filled by You. Help me to die to myself and live only for You. Use me as You will. Let me never draw my attention back to myself. I only want to operate as You do, dwelling within me.

    I am Yours, Lord. I want to have my life in You. I want to do the will of the Father. Give me the strength to put aside the world and let You operate my very being. Help me to act as You desire. Strengthen me against the distractions of the devil to take me from Your work.

    When I worry, I have taken my focus off of You and placed it on myself. Help me not to give in to the promptings of others to change what in my heart You are making very clear to me. I worship You, I adore You and I love You. Come and dwell in me now.

                         10. Words of Surrender of a Soul

Today Lord, (today's date), I give You my entire will-

I give You all my liberties, I want to love and serve You as You desire.

I surrender myself to You.

I ask You to run my life.

I ask You to help me act like You, Jesus, and like Your Mother Mary.

God, this day I consecrate myself to You.

I am  (name) , Your beloved child, guide me on my way now as I go about my day (or if in Church) as I leave Your Eucharistic presence.




I _________________ give my heart to
You Jesus and Mary on this day

I promise to help spread the devotion to
the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.
