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.

Prayer to the Father

                            Oh God I unite to this Holy Sacrifice

                            Have mercy on me and on the whole world.

March 20, 2004 message continues

Messenger:        We are so concerned with every measure
                                of fat and carbohydrates in our
                                food so we can sustain
                                our life here below.

                            Oh that you would care so much
                                for the life hereafter.

                                Many never think of that.

                            The life hereafter goes on for eternity.


        Readings for Sunday's Mass


Joshua 5: 9-12  

Yahweh then said to Joshua, ‘Today I have taken the shame of Egypt away from you.’ Hence, the place has been called Gilgal ever since.

The Israelites pitched their camp at Gilgal and kept the Passover there on the fourteenth day of the month, at evening, in the plain of Jericho. On the very next day after the Passover, they ate what the land produced, unleavened bread and roasted ears of corn. The manna stopped the day after they had eaten the produce of the land. The Israelites from that year onwards ate the produce of Canaan and had no more manna.


2 Corinthians 5: 17-21

So for anyone who is in Christ, there is a new creation: the old order is gone and a new being is there to see. It is all God’s work; he reconciled us to himself through Christ and he gave us the ministry of reconciliation. I mean, God was in Christ reconciling the world to himself, not holding anyone’s faults against them, but entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. 

    So we are ambassadors for Christ; it is as though God were urging you through us, and in the name of Christ we appeal to you to be reconciled to God. For our sake he made the sinless one a victim for sin, so that in him we might become the uprightness of God.


Luke 15: 1-3, 11-32

The tax collectors and sinners, however, were all crowding round to listen to him, and the Pharisees and scribes complained saying, ‘This man welcomes sinners and eats with them.’ So he told them this parable:

Then he said, ‘There was a man who had two sons. The younger one said to his father, "Father, let me have the share of the estate that will come to me." So the father divided the property between them. A few days later, the younger son got together everything he had and left for a distant country where he squandered his money on a life of debauchery. 

    ‘When he had spent it all, that country experienced a severe famine, and now he began to feel the pinch; so he hired himself out to one of the local inhabitants who put him on his farm to feed the pigs. And he would willingly have filled himself with the husks the pigs were eating but no one would let him have them. Then he came to his senses and said, "How many of my father’s hired men have all the food they want and more, and here am I dying of hunger! I will leave this place and go to my father and say: Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you; I no longer deserve to be called your son; treat me as one of your hired men." So he left the place and went back to his father. 

    ‘While he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was moved with pity. He ran to the boy, clasped him in his arms and kissed him. Then his son said, "Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. I no longer deserve to be called your son." But the father said to his servants, "Quick! Bring out the best robe and put it on him; put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet. Bring the calf we have been fattening, and kill it; we will celebrate by having a feast, because this son of mine was dead and has come back to life; he was lost and is found." And they began to celebrate. 

    ‘Now the elder son was out in the fields, and on his way back, as he drew near the house, he could hear music and dancing. Calling one of the servants he asked what it was all about. The servant told him, "Your brother has come, and your father has killed the calf we had been fattening because he has got him back safe and sound." He was angry then and refused to go in, and his father came out and began to urge him to come in; but he retorted to his father, "All these years I have slaved for you and never once disobeyed any orders of yours, yet you never offered me so much as a kid for me to celebrate with my friends. But, for this son of yours, when he comes back after swallowing up your property—he and his loose women—you kill the calf we had been fattening." 

    ‘The father said, "My son, you are with me always and all I have is yours. But it was only right we should celebrate and rejoice, because your brother here was dead and has come to life; he was lost and is found." ’


Excerpt from Priestly Newsletter 1998 Issue 4  

The Peace of the Lord

I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd is one who lays down his life for his sheep. The hired man, since he is not the shepherd and the sheep do not belong to him, abandons the sheep and runs away as soon as he sees a wolf coming, and then the wolf attacks and scatters the sheep; this is because he is only a hired man and has no concern for the sheep. I am the good shepherd; I know my own and my own know me, just as the Father knows me and I know the Father; and I lay down my life for my sheep. (Jn 10:11-151)

Yes, the Good Shepherd laid down His life for us in His brutal and agonizing death on the cross and rose gloriously from the dead so that we might have abundant life in Him.

One of the most important aspects of the life Jesus came to give us is peace. We have the following account of Jesus' appearance to the disciples after His resurrection:

"In the evening of that same day, the first day of the week, the doors were closed in the room where the disciples were, for fear of the Jews. Jesus came and stood among them. He said to them, 'Peace be with you,' and showed them his hands and his side. The disciples were filled with joy when they saw the Lord, and he said to them again, 'Peace be with you'" (Jn 20:19-21).

  • The world needs peace. Individual nations need peace and families need peace. The Church needs peace. Each of us individually needs peace. We must work for peace through prayer, fasting, and other Christ-like activities.

    And just what do we mean by peace? St. Augustine says peace is the tranquility of order. God has put order into His creation and this order must be respected and promoted if peace is to prevail. To the extent that the human family lives according to God's will--lives according to the order or the plan God has established for creation--to that extent does peace exist in the various segments of human society. To the extent there are violations of God's plan, of His will, to that extent peace is absent.

    If we are to be instruments of peace, we ourselves must be at peace. Our personal peace is that tranquility of order which results from our doing God's will. The more we are united through love with God in the doing of His will, the more we experience peace.

    Sometimes the sense of peace we experience is so strong that we can "feel" it pulsating throughout our being. These are periods of what we may call the experience of extraordinary peace. This type of peace usually is not an everyday occurrence.

    Most of the time we live immersed in a more subdued kind of peace which results from our daily attempts to do God's will in love. It is that peace which is a welcome and sustaining companion as we walk the path of everyday life with its usual assortments of joys and disappointments, successes and failures, laughter and tears.

    Occasionally, very deep suffering may enter our lives. It is during these times that we need special determination to preserve ourselves in a basic peace of spirit despite the very significant pain. One may wonder how a person can be at peace amidst the experience of great suffering. St. Francis de Sales in one of his writings--and I have not been able to locate the exact place--offers an analogy which I think is very helpful. He asks us to picture an ocean body of water at the time of a violent storm. The surface of the water becomes extremely turbulent. Francis asks us, as we use our imagination , to descend beneath the surface of the water into its depth. What do we find? The more deeply one descends away from the turbulent surface, the calmer the water becomes. Likewise, says the saint and doctor of the Church, should it be with us during times of profound suffering. Although the surface of the spirit may be very agitated, one can still maintain basic peace of spirit by going deep down to one's center where God is more directly experienced. Here the person experiences a calm, a basic peace, although the suffering remains.

    If we are trying to do God's will in love, God intends us to be at peace. The more we conform to God's will, the more we are living according to the order He intends for us. In turn, the more our lives are in harmony with the order established by God, the more we experience peace--peace being the tranquility of order. The more we ourselves live in this manner, the more fit instruments we become for promoting God's order and consequent peace throughout the various segments of society.

September 12, 1998

Messenger: The more we try to control things and people around us, the more we show our lack of faith.

Without any direction from man, the sun comes up and goes down every day, we experience the change of seasons, the sun-lit day, the blustery wind, the snow, beauteous on the ground, and we see that we do not control the elements.

Jesus speaks: I have this lesson to teach you My beloved earth. You wish to control every detail of your lives. Every fat cell is measured, every detail to the n'th degree, but if I so choose a tornado can rip your houses, businesses and your very limbs from your body.

I am God. I breathe life into the baby and man in his audacity feels that he can measure every spoon of flour and make the recipe to his own liking and have control of all the events.

You are not in control. I can stop you all dead. I give you the Commandments, the foundation that you must live by. You do not trust your God, many of you have arrogantly lived your life independently of Him.

You are not independent of your God, you are dependent on Him for your every breath.

Control, control, control, then a power failure can erase months of work on your computer. You have measured every spoon of flour, you have fortified your buildings with steel, you have insured your cars and houses.

When the end came for those on the plane, when the end came for those on the unsinkable ship the Titanic, it came. No matter what the wisest man said and did, they died.

I am God. I am all powerful. I say to the sun to shine and it shines, to the grass to grow and it grows, to the wind to blow and it blows. You know not whence the wind comes and where it is going. You measure and test, but you fail to know when the ice storm will hit and your power will be wiped out.

Our Lady of Fatima in the Americas appears on the building in Clearwater, Florida, and you ignore her.

What do you wish God to do to get your attention? I send gifts, you gag the prophets and laugh behind their backs, then you experience the sufferings and say it was a happening.

When the town of Falmouth flooded it was because they ignored the visits of the Blessed Virgin and did not respond to the messages given through the Shepherds of Christ Movement.

The first time Falmouth made the Cincinnati Enquirer headlines was when Mary appeared. The next time Falmouth made the headlines was when it was flooded, so many months later after warnings were given, time and time again.

My children, gifts are given, warnings are given, all are ignored. How do I get your attention? You will not listen. Your power comes from God.

Messenger: He is in control. God's power flows through those in authority. We are all subject to those in authority. Authority is a friend, it is power coming down from God, but because authority has been misused by many, authority has become known to many as distasteful control that restricts, inhibits and causes pain.

This is not how God intended it to be for the human family. The father of the family is to be one acting like the heavenly Father, acting in love, teaching the children about love and the Commandments and the knowledge of God.

The priest has authority in the Church. He has the authority, to act to a very high degree, like Christ. Through the administration of the Sacraments Jesus' divine life flows to the Body of Christ.

The devil wants us to try to be in control, God wants us to be children always acting according to God's will, always realizing our dependence on God.

How will we be as the Father wishes us to be, we who are the tainted children of Eve, with our willful ways and our tainted human natures? There is only one way, it is in dwelling in the pure and Immaculate Heart of Mary. We choose God's will when we dwell in her Immaculate Heart.

The more the children of Eve disobey and ignore Mary their Mother, the more they will struggle with the evil one and his influence.

In an article in Fr. Carter's newsletter for the priests, he quotes a Jesuit theologian who said that great advances were made in the early Church because Mary was on earth, participating at Mass and interceding for the Apostles and the Church.

I state this clearly: We need to be in the heart of Mary, now interceding to God for all our needs, to help bring about the Reign of the Sacred Heart and the Triumph of Mary's Immaculate Heart.

In order for the Father's family to operate with power flowing as it should through the person in authority, those in authority need pure hearts.

The priests will not have pure hearts unless they go through Mary's heart. The father of the family won't operate with a pure heart unless he goes through Mary's heart.

More than any human person, Mary's heart was most perfectly conformed to the will of the Father. To be conformed more and more to the Father's will as He wishes, we must be within the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

Of all human persons, Mary has the most perfect and pure heart. Jesus possesses the most pure Heart, because it belongs to a Divine Person.

We go to the altar of sacrifice, the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, the sacrifice of Calvary sacramentally made present, and we offer a most pure and holy sacrifice in Their Hearts.

I ask you to read the accounts of Malachi 1:6-14

'The son honours his father, the slave stands in awe of his master. But if I am indeed father, where is the honour due to me? And if I am indeed master, where is the awe due to me? says Yahweh Sabaoth to you priests who despise my name. You ask, "How have we despised your name?" By putting polluted food on my altar. You ask, "How have we polluted you?" By saying, "The table of Yahweh deserves no respect." When you bring blind animals for sacrifice, is this not wrong? When you bring the lame and the diseased, is this not wrong? If you offer them to your governor, see if he is pleased with them or receives you graciously, says Yahweh Sabaoth. In that case, try pleading with God to take pity on us (that is what you have done), and will he take any notice? says Yahwah Sabaoth. Why does one of you not close the doors and so stop the pointless lighting of fires on my altar? I am not pleased with you, says Yahweh Sabaoth; from your hands I find no offerings acceptable. But from farthest east to farthest west my name is great among the nations, and everywhere incense and a pure gift are offered to my name, since my name is great among the nations, says Yahweh Sabaoth.

'But you have profaned it by saying, "The table of the Lord is polluted, hence the food offered on it deserves no respect." You say, "How tiresome it all is!" and sniff disdainfully at me, says Yahweh Sabaoth. You bring a stolen, lame or deseased animal, you bring that as an offering! Am I to accept this from you? says Yahweh Sabaoth. Cursed be the rogue who has a male in his flock but pays his vow by sacrificing a blemished animal to me! For I am a great king, says Yahweh Sabaoth, and among the nations my name inspires awe.'

October 20, 1998

Jesus speaks: Awake from your slumber, why are you so sleepy? You are not prepared, you lack faith and order in your lives. You are busy, busy, busy and you come to My altars. You do not know for you have not been taught, you are asleep and do not even see.

Do you know what it is to try to drive your car when you are sleepy, and with all your heart you wish to continue your journey, but your body is ready for sleep?

You cannot do all these things, that is have a busy, worldly schedule and expect to have a deep union with Me.

What relationship with a spouse or a friend or a child grows, if little time is spent on the relationship?

You are busy for your worldly schedules and when it comes time to pray you say, Oh Lord tomorrow and that tomorrow never comes to many of My treasured souls.

As the thirsty earth sops up the quenching rain on a long hot summer day, you lie as a parched desert land waiting to be watered and you put it off for another day.

Have you ever watched a withered flower at the end of a hot summer? Every day the caretaker tarries in watering the flower. Water is crucial to its life.

Finally, one day, after it has been deprived of water, it becomes so dried up it dies, and is blown away by a strong wind or trampled under foot by children at play.

Why do you worry and fret for your fat cells and carbohydrates? You watch every detail of the food you eat, but like the caretaker and withered flower, you put off the feeding of your souls for a new day. And finally one day it is so parched and dried, it has lost its way.

Oh My desert land, My beloved earth, you water your grass with the most expensive built-in sprinkling systems, and you let the soul within you shrivel like the withered flower that dies and fades away.

Oh men, indeed you are earthy, you have lost your focus.

You do not comprehend that certain graces are being held back from your troubled earth because you do not pray and ask for it.

When many pray, they come as in a deep sleep and go through motions.

How is it you are exhausted and go to a party, even then you cannot enjoy the dance and the music and the food?

Many of My churchmen come to the Mass with a mind of trouble. They have not prayed, they are not focused on the events at hand.

I ask you My beloved souls to come to the heavenly banquet. It is a banquet prepared by the heavenly Father for His beloved souls of the earth. He gives to you the Sacrifice of Calvary sacramentally made present at every Mass. He gives to you that which is most dear, His beloved Son as a gift in the Eucharist, the Bread of Life to feed the weary soul.

You fertilize your old flowers and spray insecticide on your grass. You study the grade on the golf course and make sure all the corners in your homes are free from dust. You pay great funds for the lawn care. It is very expensive, and you work long hours.

I send the winter frost and your well-cared flowers and blossoms disappear as the light steals across the sky.

Oh that you would come out of your dead stupors. I give you Myself in the Eucharist and you come so unprepared. You run in, and then run out to fill you gas tanks and to eat luscious brunches. You say, "This my God is my time I give you. I give you the quick 50-60 minutes on Sunday", and then you spend the day with the Sunday newspaper and sports. What is in your newspapers, anyway? How many speak of God on His Day? Oh the Sunday newspaper, everyone must have one and know all the scores and passes of every game, but My children, do you know the Commandments of God?

Oh My children, the days are few and the frost will come soon. Your Sundays were spent so foolishly on many things that wither and die. You attend Mass as in a stupor, a part-dead man coming to My altar and I give you the Bread of Life.

Oh My men, it is grace I wish to give you, but you come as a "zombie" with your heart every place but united to Mine.

I am Life. My churchmen, do not come with hearts that are locked or hearts that are cold and half asleep.

Look at Me on the cross. I died for you that you would share in My life abundantly.

When the priests consecrate their hearts to My Heart and the Heart of My Mother, they will see a light in their hearts in the Mass. They will know more and more about the journey that goes on in the Mass. The journey is one that takes you deeply into My pierced Heart. Therein are found the treasures you crave, and I outpour My precious grace to you.

I do not want sleepy souls coming to My altar, half asleep. I want love, I want participation. I give you Myself, and a strong wind could take you away at the Mass. Your minds are everywhere but with Me.

Please circulate the priestly newsletter to priests. You are searching for Me. You walk now in a clouded light.

The more you give your hearts to Jesus and Mary, the more you will see the light and experience more fully the treasures you seek. You walk now, many of My souls, as blind men, and you will not see as you should until you obey Our Lady of Fatima. The Holy Spirit works in the Heart of Mary, giving you light. You are blind and do not know it.

The Father's plan is that you, the tainted children of Adam and Eve, come in the pure and holy Hearts of Jesus and Mary. It is in this union of your hearts to Theirs that great grace will be released on the earth and men will see as never before.

Where it was once cloudy and dark, in the blinking of an eye, a light shone and all was made crystal clear.

Wake up my churchmen, you must consecrate your hearts and your churches. I am the King. My Mother, and your Mother, is the Queen. You must acknowledge her and give your hearts to Us.

The light will steal across a darkened sky and the shades of darkness will fade as the withered grass on the earth below.

I will reign and the Heart of My Mother will triumph. I write to you My slumbering earth and I CRY

Excerpt from April 20, 2001

Messenger:  I still see Father Carter as he said Mass.

                        Yesterday a very holy priest
                     celebrated Mass, I could see Christ
                     in him. I was so aware of Jesus
                     giving Himself to me the Bridegroom of my soul.

                The devil can get us so focused on the actions of
                     others we can miss precious moments
                     with Our Lord.

                 The devil very often helps to create division
                     so we will stay focused on some things
                     that irritate us rather than focusing
                     on Jesus and loving Him.

                 The devil tries to blow things up in our minds
                     so we stay in a state of irritability,
                     many times angry with our brothers.

                     (And work isn't accomplished for Jesus.
                              Work that can help save souls)

                 The devil works on our unmet needs. He helps
                     us to create a case in our minds 
                     against people we love and want to be united with. He
                     is the master of confusion and doubt.

                 He tries to make some controlling against
                     God's will.

                 In the end in the Reign of the Sacred Heart 
                      all will just work in harmony
                      and do God's will.

Jesus speaks: Look at Me looking at you with such love.

                 Envision the face of God.

                 See the love outpoured to you.

                 Feel satisfaction in your heart.
                 Be grateful for what I give you.
                 I love you so much, I want you to know Me and
                     be filled with My love.

                 The devil works in getting people focused on themselves
                     many times, he tells them they are fat or
                     too old or...anything that can cause
                     a lack of peace.

                 The devil is one who wants to destroy one's
                     peace and harmony.

                 I want you to be happy in the Lord.
                     I want you to know peace in
                     your soul and know My
                     deep love for you.

                 There are so many holy priests.

                 Masses that priests say can be so deeply
                     embedded in your heart.

Messenger:      I remember the powerful Mass of Holy

             I want it again.

             Some Masses take me to such heights,
                        I have a let down because I
                        want to be so deeply united to

                        God and experience great

                        times of ecstatic union with Him.

             I long for eternity and oneness with God,
                 but I want so much to help save souls.

             I love God so, so much.

             I see Him my bridegroom dressed in black

                 and I see myself clothed in a white full

                 dress. He loves me so much, I know.

                 He is always with me, In all the trials of
                 helping to spread His work, He is with


             I must trust in Him and know His presence

                         with me.

             The devil can twist things around and make

                    us miserable. He can tell old skinny

                    ladies in nursing homes they shouldn't

                    eat anything they like and if they do

                    then they aren't loving Jesus.

             I think Mary made good food to please
                         Joseph and Jesus.

             The devil just wants to torment people.

             This focus on every "fat cell" can be
                 taken to extremes.

             What do you eat? So many things may seem a potential


            Father Carter had diabetes. He used to enjoy ice

                 cream from Grater's. He had to give up a

                 lot of his joys in eating.

                    Some people tell themselves they have to starve

                            themselves on chicken and one vegetable.

                            They don't eat a balanced diet and don't

                            have energy to work, so they really do

                            very little work because they are always

                            lacking energy.

                    Some people get up so early to pray and then keep
                           getting up earlier and earlier until finally

                            they don't do any work because the rest

                            of the day they are tired.

                    Sleeping and eating enough food is important.

                        What if everybody just fasted and prayed all


                    God wants a lot of us to be contemplatives

                        in action.

                    The devil can help people carry things to extremes.

                    The bottom line is this "What is God's will for

                        us?" Do we set so many restrictions on

                        our lives that we can't even operate in

                        the community or we are too tired to do

                        the work God is calling us to do?

                    We need our prayer life, we, especially Shepherds of Christ apostles,

                        need one hour before the tabernacle and daily

                        Mass every day and prayers all through the

                        day, the rosary, the 6:20 prayers (even if

                        they are not said at 6:20) we try as Shepherds

                        of Christ Apostles to pray the Shepherds of

                        Christ prayers daily and the Holy Spirit


                    But we do not diet so we do not
                        have energy to help save souls.

                    The devil works on people to stay up late at
                        night. Sometimes they feel a burst of energy
                        before bed.

                    Lets all pray this prayer all through the day

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.

Picture of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

December 30, 1993

     It is in acceptance of all that is before you that you grow in your relationship with me.  Do not try to throw back the opportunity for grace you receive.

     Child, I am ever by your side and I am ever teaching you.  Accept all things as happening from Him Who loves you.  Know that My hand is in everything you are experiencing.  I am vigilant and by your side.  Nothing happens to you that I have not consented to.

Jesus speaks:      Oh My child, if you want an
                                intellectual study of the
                                Trinity, if you treat it
                                as a study of history
                                you may miss that deep intimate
                                love union that your heart
                                cries for.

                            Oh the litanies—How I love the Litany
                                to the Blessed Mother, oh
                                how I love it when you
                                pray the Litany to My Sacred

                            Oh the litanies—oh My child,
                                what honor your God receives
                                when you fervently recite or sing 
                                the litanies.

                            Oh My child, pray the litanies
                                with your whole heart.

                            Ponder the words—cry out
                                "pray for us",  "have mercy
                                 on us".

                            Oh My child that deep love union
                                with God the Father, Myself
                                and God the Holy Spirit can
                                grow ever deeper when you
                                go to Mass and go before the
                                tabernacle and pray fervently.

                            What about the Trinity.

                            I want a love union with My beloved
                            Your Father wants you to obey His
                                will and be like a little child.


Matthew 11: 25

At that time Jesus exclaimed, ‘I bless you, Father, Lord of heaven and of earth, for hiding these things from the learned and the clever and revealing them to little children.

                                feeding their soul.

                            Oh every gram is weighed, they
                                lift their weights, and
                                what about the care for their

                                many of my priests may think.

                            Oh you live every moment so one with
                                the Trinity, so united to the
                                Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

                            Your heart should be on fire for love of
                                God, you should live as the child
                                of the Father, you should live as
                                My Spouse making Me the
                                King and Center of your
                                hearts, you should live to please
                                Me and promote My Kingdom.

                            Oh My child, they are blind, in Churches
                                all over the world today and
                                tomorrow priests will talk
                                about the Trinity like it
                                is a "thing" to be described
                                and end by saying it is 
                                a mystery.

                            Oh My child, I want your writings of
                                the experiences I have given to 
                                you published. I want the priests to
                                read the Mass Book. I want priests
                                and sisters to receive the Blue
especially Blue Book II.

                            I want priests to know about Mary's
                                image in Florida.

                            My people help Me to circulate
                                the picture of Mary's image
                                in relationship to the writings
                                of Fr. Carter and Rita Ring.

                            You are not permitted to circulate
                                materials without the Imprimatur
                             on Church property or in
                                schools without the permission
                                of the priest.

                            Give your priests and bishops the
                                prayer manual and prayer

                            My people please print My prayer
                                cards or offer to help with
                                this and the pictures. The persons
                                doing so for the ministry,
                                must be delegated to do so by
                                the Ministry.

                            I do not want you to do it "any old
                                way." I want the image of My
                                Mother to accompany the materials
                                I have given through Shepherds
                                of Christ and the writings of 
                                Fr. Carter and Rita Ring.

                                All of the books were very carefully
                                discerned by Fr. Edward Carter, S.J.

                                given to the earth and you
                                smite Me and chase My messenger
                                and when I ask you to celebrate
                                My Feast—well how do you
                                celebrate the Feast of the Trinity?

                            I want your heart to burn with
                                love of God: Father, Son and
                                Holy Spirit.

                            I want your heart consumed with
                                love for God.

                            What is the 1st commandment?

                            When you love someone do you have
                                trouble talking about them.

                            I want an intimate union with you.

                            If you go to heaven, for all eternity you
                                will be possessed by God: 
                                Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

                                Feast ———

                            let your hearts be

                        consumed with love.

                        Oh My men—do you

Excerpt from Response to God's Love

by Father Edward Carter, S.J.



                                               The Mystery of Christ and
                                                     Christian Existence

...In reference to Christianity, God himself is the ultimate mystery. Radically, God is completely other and transcendent, hidden from man in his inner life, unless he chooses to reveal himself. Let us briefly look at this inner life of God.

       The Father, in a perfect act of self-expression, in a perfect act of knowing, generates his son. The Son, the Word, is, then, the immanent expression of God's fullness, the reflection of the Father. Likewise, from all eternity, the Father and the Son bring forth the Holy Spirit in a perfect act of loving.

       At the destined moment in human history, God's self-expression, the Word, immersed himself into man's world. God's inner self-expression now had also become God's outer self-expression. Consequently, the mystery of God becomes the mystery of Christ. In Christ, God tells us about himself, about his inner life, about his plan of creation and redemption. He tells us how Father, Son, and Holy Spirit desire to dwell within us in the most intimate fashion, how they wish to share with us their own life through grace. All this he has accomplished and does accomplish through Christ. St. Paul tells us: "I became a minister of this Church through the commission God gave me to preach among you his word in its fullness, that mystery hidden from ages and generations past but now revealed to his holy ones. God has willed to make known to them the glory beyond price which this mystery brings to the Gentiles—the mystery of Christ in you, your hope of glory. This is the Christ we proclaim while we admonish all men and teach them in the full measure of wisdom, hoping to make every man complete in Christ" (Col 1:25-28).

Jesus speaks:     Oh My people, I cry for you.

                            You analyze every fat cell and
                                then you know so little
                                about God the Father, God the
                                Son and God the Holy Spirit.

                            How will My little ones know when
                                My priests do not tell them
                                about their love for the Persons
                                of the Trinity.

                            And men will come to lead your children
                                away—will you try to tell
                                them, then? Why didn't they
                                tell them about deep intimate
                                love of the Persons of the
                                Trinity when they went to
                                school and to church as
                                little ones.

                            You have a little time to teach
                                the people in Church.

                            What is the First Commandment                                

                              1. I, the Lord, am your God. You shall not have 
                                  other gods besides me.

                             What is the Second Commandment

                               2.  You shall not take the name 
                                    of the Lord, your God, in vain.

                            What is the Third Commandment

                               3. Remember to keep holy the Sabbath day.

                            Who will tell them how deeply God

                                wants to be loved if the clergy

                                doesn't have a deep intimate

                                union with each Person of

                                the Trinity themselves.

                            Love means wanting to please
                                the other for their good.

                            Love means spending time
                                with the one loved.

                            My priests and sisters many leave
                                right after they receive

                            I want a love affair with

                                My people, I want deep

                                intimate love.

                            The Eucharist is such a gift.

Excerpt from March 19, 2002 Rosary
Sidney, Ohio  

Jesus speaks:  Oh City of Jerusalem, how blind are your eyes for you do not see and you do not comprehend the riches that I have given to you. And when I cry to the children of Israel they plug up their ears and they do not listen. And it is to you that I have called My shepherds, that you would live a life of deeper consecration begging for the grace to have greater vision to see beyond and to know more truly life as it really is, not focusing on the riches of the earth below, but opening wide your heart and knowing how temporary this life here below is for you.  

Messenger:  And so the child that may be dying may be the one that is given one of the greatest gifts for his life should have been relatively pure and he moves on to a place of ecstasy, one in which he will be united to God but the people mourn and they cry and they say “Oh the child, the child that dies and is God just in this” but He gives the life and He takes it away and He shows us in the death of a child that life is so temporary here and there is not one of us in this room that can control so many elements of our own life and yet you watch the world focus on weighing every grain of sugar and fat cell until they are purple in the face as if life will last forever here below. And the food that feeds the soul is overlooked by so many.

Excerpt from July 20, 2002

Jesus speaks:    Would you ever have time to smell the flowers?

                         Some people just look at things from a
                            negative side, they are constantly worrying,
                            constantly dissatisfied.

                        Do you think a person that is always
                            down and sad and worried would
                            sell a product before people?

                        Are you Christians?
                        You should be happy!!
                        I am God!

                        I can make gold fall from the sky.
                        I have given you the beautiful golden
                            Lady in Clearwater.

                        Some people are always looking for some human
                            person or some thing to make them happy.

                        They look to the children, the job, a
                            special friend, the postman, even
                            the e-mail- They think this will be the
                            very thing to make them happy - thinking
                            happiness depends on something outside
                            of themselves.

                        The luster of the shiny car soon wears off.

                        So much focus is being placed on food.

                        A person that is considered "heavy" can be
                            looked on as a real outcast.

                        There were many saints with fuller bodies.

                        I see the heart of the person.

                        I know the sins of the flesh.

                        I see the murder of the babies in the womb.

                        I see the luring dress, the music that is
                            not according to the commandments.

                        I see the soul.

                        How are you in your heart?

                        Have you sinned against God, but every
                            calorie is counted and you know every
                            fat cell in everything you eat.

                        Oh that you would be so concerned for food for your soul.

                        Beauty, real beauty comes from within.

                        Ask for grace to quit the negative
                            things you do every day.

                        I do not refer to discussion about problems.
                        You must address real problems and discuss
                            problems with each other.

                        I refer to the chronic way one
                            complains and finds something
                            wrong with most things, often
                            not counting your blessings,
                            often missing the tremendous gifts
                            you have been given.

                        Be grateful, be loving, thank God
                            for the gifts given to you.

                        So many times I give great gifts to
                            people and they do not even notice
                            the gifts they are given, they complain
                            and continue to complain, it
                            becomes a habit, one that is very
                            hard to break. They continually live
                            this way, always looking for the
                            negative side of everything, even
                            pleasurable things, they complain,
                            they think negatively.

                        Look at the great gifts you are given.

                        Say thanks for the gifts given to you.

                        Pray to Me.

                        Rely on My Might.

                        I am the Almighty God.

                        I have all the Power.

                        See the children ——

Vision March 20, 1997

Junior Shepherds of Christ Meeting
Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center

    Mary appeared as Our Lady of Fatima for one hour and 15 minutes. Mary appeared in the Sorrowful Mother statue at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center.

    I was at Our Lady's House for the Junior Shepherds of Christ meeting. I cannot remember any great apparition of Mary in the Sorrowful Mother statue since August 12 and 13, 1996. She appeared all night and two times on August 13, 1996, once right before I went to the rosary at Tom's farm about 5:30 p.m. (the night John was there and St. Michael came out of the water). Mary comes when you least expect her.

    Tonight I went to the Holy Spirit Center for the rosary with the Junior Shepherds of Christ. We could not pray in the Rosary chapel because Fr. Smith was going to say Mass. We could not pray in the Sorrowful Mother's chapel because the pews were draped with work clothes. We could not pray in the social hall because the band was playing. The only place left was in the hall on the other side of the wall from the band. The youth in the Shepherds of Christ chapter decided this was the place and moved pews in front of the statue.

    As we began the rosary I began to see Mary, covered with a mist. Then I saw light around her. She got bigger than the statue, her face softened to that of the most beautiful woman—the same as the picture I took on Mother's Day 1995 when she told me to buy film and take her picture. She was all adorned in light. She changed, around her head and she became a young, beautiful girl. She then changed into a lady of immense light, all white, beautiful and young. I wanted to cry in awe looking at her. I wanted to stop the rosary and just see the apparition, but I continued to speak as she spoke through me.

    The whole rosary was on Our Lady of Fatima. She turned into Our Lady of Fatima, so white, so beautiful, young in her face. I have seen many statues of Our Lady of Fatima. I have seen her all white and adorned in light before—Our Lady of Light, that is what she called herself.

    On October 5, 1996 I saw her at Immaculata in the grotto. She had told me earlier that day she was Our Lady of the Rosary and gave a very strong message.

    I do not recall seeing her in an apparition in the Sorrowful Mother's statue since August 13, 1996.

    She was clearly, clearly, "Our Lady of Fatima" - LIVE. I saw her. I am in awe and wanted more, it was so beautiful!

    She may have appeared as Our Lady of Fatima the first time. She was covered with the greatest light—a light as from a fire and all white, but on July 5, 1994 when she first appeared,

    I did not know what Our Lady of Fatima looked like.

    I know tonight she was like every statue I have ever seen of Our Lady of Fatima, glistening, and all white. She had beads or embroidery around her cloak. I know she looked like the Lady of Fatima statues but LIVE.

    Every time we sang A Song From Jesus she would shine with the brightest light and her face would fill with the greatest joy.

    There was no place for Jesus to be born—He was born the Light of the World in a stable in Bethlehem and the brightest star shone above His bed.

    This rosary on Fatima needs to circulate to the youth. Mary appeared to tell us to tell the youth this rosary. It does not have any message from Mary, only information from her for the youth.

    Mary's message for the youth: a rosary on Fatima—as she appeared to deliver it.

    This is a great comfort to me. She appeared, Our Lady of Fatima, to tell us that this is truly a major part of the completion of the Fatima message.

    The youth told me they could not hear the rosary, only the loud music of the band. I did not hear the band at all—but was in awe with Mary's appearing and the rosary!

    At one point I saw a little blond hair sticking out from under her veil at the top of her head.

    At least three times I saw this immense Lady of Light turn into Our Lady of Fatima. It was as if she was transformed from the Lady of Light into the Lady of Fatima.

    The room was a brightly lighted hallway with big balls of light that came down from the ceiling.

    She was adorned in light, brighter than the hallway, light as bright as seven suns, the Lady of Light.

    It is in her womb we see the light, the light of knowing God through the power of the Holy Spirit.

The Joyful Mysteries



The Annunciation

  1. Our heavenly Mother Mary, gave messages associated with the major Fatima apparitions. She told Jacinta, one of the three visionaries at Fatima...

        "'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.'27
        "This last message offers us an excellent opportunity to summarize the Fatima message. It tells us "that the Heart of Jesus wishes to be venerated together with the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
        "At the center of the veneration for which Our Lord calls is the act of consecration to His Sacred Heart and to Mary's Immaculate Heart."

  1. You should not be afraid, for Jesus and Mary are with us. They are watching us, and they are helping us in everything that we do. God is in charge.
  2. So we come to this rosary to gather and to pray as the Junior Shepherds of Christ Associates. It is in this rosary that we will receive help to not be afraid, to help to take the light to the dark world.
  3. It is in going through our Mother Mary that we will be formed more and more into the image and the likeness of Jesus.
  4. The Child Jesus was formed in the womb of the Virgin Mary, through the power of the Holy Spirit. When we go to the heart of Mary, the spiritual womb, we are transformed more and more to be children of light.
  5. How Mary loves the children of this world. She guards them and mothers them more than any earthly mother. Mary guards us with her motherly care, and watches over us, and wants to lead us to the Heart of her Son, Jesus.   
  6. Christ showed us. He was born of the Virgin Mary. He came into this world in the Virgin Mary. We too must go to the Virgin Mary in order to have this close union with God. Mary is the gateway into the Heart of Jesus.
  7. At Fatima, Mary spoke to the children and she called them her children. We must realize that she is calling us, her children, to the Heart of her Son, Jesus.
  8. What of the Hearts of Jesus and Mary? The Hearts of Jesus and Mary are our refuge in this life. They are the Hearts of true love. It is in giving our hearts to Jesus and to Mary that we will have hearts filled with holy love.
  9. So much of this world has turned to hearts that are cold. Jesus wants love, burning love, from the children of this world, and He is given a cold heart.






The Visitation

  1. We carry Jesus within our hearts.
  2. When we visit others we bring the Jesus that lives within us to the other person. We embrace Jesus when we embrace each other in love.   
  3. Mary went to visit her cousin, Elizabeth. The Child Jesus was within Mary's womb. We carry Jesus within ourselves. We receive Him in the Holy Eucharist. When we go to Communion, we go to our pews, and we have the Son of God within our hearts. He is as present in our hearts as He was when He was carried in the womb of Mary, when she went to visit her cousin, Elizabeth.
  4. We do not even realize the great gifts God has given to us when He gives Himself to us in the Holy Eucharist. Think of what it would be like if He took away the gift of the Holy Eucharist, if He took away the Mass.
  5. We must be strong. We are the youth that are being sent to go into a world that has turned sinful. Some have turned their backs on God. We must realize, that we must be strong. It is hard in this world, but we must go to Jesus. We must spend time with Him everyday.
  6. Jesus is the Son of Mary. Jesus and Mary are with us.
  7. Hail Mary...
  8. We must listen to the words of scripture, the words that we are given as teachings. We must pray to the Holy Spirit that we will comprehend the word of God, for God is speaking to us in His word. The Holy Spirit gives us understanding into these words that we will know God and love Him.
  9. Mary brought forth an infant child. She watched Him. She cared for Him. All through His life, she stayed close to Him. All through our lives our Mother Mary is forever by our sides.
  10. We must be strong, for we are being called by God. It is not a myth. He is calling each one of us to be leaders to help to lead the other youth to God.






The Birth of Jesus

  1. The heavenly Father allowed Mary to appear at Fatima, and she told us what we must do. She told us that in order to have peace in the world we must give our hearts to her and give our hearts to her Son, Jesus.
  2. She said that if we did not pay attention to her there would be a great war. Man ignored the pleading of Our Lady at Fatima, and there was World War II. Many, many, many people were killed. They suffered a brutal death.
  3. At Fatima, she showed the three young children the fires of hell. They were very young, and they said they would have died of fright had Our Lady not assured them that they would not go to hell.
  4. Why would Our Lady appear to children and show children the souls suffering in the fires in hell?
  5. Mary appears at Fatima, and she is ignored. To this very day we do not do what Mary told us to do at Fatima. At Fatima she promised in the end the Sacred Heart of Jesus will reign, and her heart will triumph.

  6. Jesus Christ came into the world in the womb of the Virgin Mary. He came as the Light of the World. He will be, in this great era of peace to come, the King and the center of all hearts.

  7. He came in poverty. He was born in a stable. He came to show us that the great riches are not found in the riches of the world, that they are found in Him. He is the King, but He comes into this world in poverty.
  8. The greatest riches are found in the Heart of Christ.
  9. It is so simple. Why do we not love God, why do we not love one another?
  10. Why does man think that he can ignore God, that he is in control, that he can do his own will?





The Presentation of Jesus in the Temple

  1. The old man Simeon said in the Temple that "Look, he is destined for the fall and for the rise of many in Israel, destined to be a sign that is opposed-" (Lk. 2:34)
  2. And he said to Mary, "and a sword will pierce your soul too-so that the secret thoughts of many may be laid bare." (Lk. 2:35)
  3. Mary is the Mother of all the children of the world, and look how she is treated by so many of her children. Many abuse her name. They abuse her images. They do not love her. She is their Mother, and they do not love her.
  4. Mary told us at Fatima what we must do in order to have peace in this world. The fourth commandment tells us we must obey our earthly mother. What makes us think that we do not have to obey our heavenly Mother?
  5. She said that man was sinful and that he was offending God. She said to Jacinta before she died, "I can no longer restrain the hand of my Divine Son from striking the world with just punishment for its many crimes." 29
  6. Here it is 80 years after Fatima and we have disobeyed our heavenly Mother and the wishes that she gave to us when she appeared at Fatima. After World War II you would think that everyone would have heeded her message of Fatima.
  7. Satan goes about the earth as a roaring lion, searching for souls to devour. When Mary showed the children at Fatima the fires of hell, she was telling them that hell was a reality and that we must go about the world and try to lead others to her Son. 

  8. What if you were one of the children at Fatima and our Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to you, in her light, and in her beauty? What if she said, "You have seen Hell, where the souls of poor sinners go...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..." 30 What if she showed you the fires of hell and the souls suffering? Would you help?

  9. Would your life change if Mary appeared to you and told you these things? Would you go and spend your life trying to tell others about the vision that she gave to you? Would you take this with the utmost urgency? If Mary was appearing to you, would you do something to heed her warnings?
  10. Remember Noah and the Ark? The people were sinning up to the time that Noah entered the Ark.





The Finding of Jesus in the Temple

  1. They were warned. They were warned over and over again of their sinfulness. They were told that they must change, but they would not obey and so God told Noah to build an Ark.
  2. And all men were destroyed, but those men on Noah's Ark.
  3. Mary searched for the Child Jesus in the Temple. Today, there are many searching for those things that will make them happy. We will not be happy if our lives are not rooted in God.
  4. We must go to Mary in order to be close to God. As Noah went into the Ark for his refuge, we to must go to the heart of Mary. She is the Ark that will lead us to the Heart of her Son.
  5. So many this day are sinning. They must go to the temple. Mary is the temple that we go to, in order to find God. We go to her spiritual womb, to her heart, and we find God. We must do as Our Lady told us at Fatima, and give Mary our hearts. All through the day we give Mary our hearts and Jesus our hearts.
  6. This is our job, to spread the Fatima message, to do what Mary has told us to do at Fatima, to give Jesus our hearts, and to tell all the other youth that we must do what Mary said at Fatima. We must give Mary and Jesus our hearts, pray the rosary, go to church on first Saturday, and tell Jesus and Mary we are sorry for the sins in this world.   
  7. Mary's peace plan is so simple to follow. We have disobeyed our heavenly Mother at Fatima. Mary appeared on July 13, 1917 to the three children. 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."31

We must obey Mary. The plan is the same plan today. We must reach the youth of this world with the consecration We must tell them to give their hearts to Jesus and Mary.

  1. Mary is the temple. We will find Jesus if we go to Mary.

Song: "Oh Holy Dwelling Place of God..."

  1. We have been given great gifts from Our Lord and from Our Lady. We want to be leaders, to lead other young people to Jesus and to Mary. We must thank them for the gifts we are given, for what we do with our lives will make the difference to so many souls. She showed the children the souls in hell. Visualize this as clearly as possible in your mind. What you do to help to spread the message of His love will make the difference to so many souls.
  2. Can we truly look at our Mother, Mary? See her before us, adorned in the greatest light. See her glistening? Look into her beautiful face, into her eyes. Tell her we must help to lead her children to the Heart of her Son, that you will help her to help others so they will not be lost to the fires of hell forever.
