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

April 10, 1999

Jesus speaks: I request this material be made available as today’s message.

Messenger: I went to the Cathedral for Mass and I was filled with awe in my heart, wanting only to love God so deeply. I was filled with the greatest love for my beloved Father and I kept praising Him and loving Him and thanking Him. I worshipped and adored Him. I cried. I was so filled with the Presence of God, tears came down my cheeks and inside I felt like a tornado exploding with love for the Almighty God. I was in awe and ecstasy because He is truly so great and worthy of honor, glory and praise.

A member of my family wanted me to go to a play in our town and take one of the younger children. I inquired about the play, but could not find anything against it. It was about Catholics, including a nun, and I wanted to know if it was done in truth.

I went Thursday night. The play opened with a song sung to Mary. I love Mary so much. In the prayers we pray from the Good Shepherd, we pray the Litany to the Virgin Mary and the Litany to the Sacred Heart to especially make reparation to Their Hearts for offenses against Them. I adore God, I love Him so much. If someone talked dishonorably about someone I love, I would not wish this. But for anyone to dishonor my beloved Jesus, Whom I adore and worship, tears my heart apart. I love the holy, Catholic Church and I thank God for His gifts.

The show began with the sister in a full black habit with a rosary hanging from her waist. She would soon hit the boy’s hands with a ruler or piece of wood. The issue was that he did not know the works of mercy or something like that. Later the young boy went home to his room and he had a curtain in his bedroom. He came out as Ed Sullivan and said something like, "Tonight will be a really big 'show.'" Then he said that one of the guests was Jesus Christ. The boy went behind the curtain and the young boy returned as Jesus Christ. The people laughed all through the show as they continued to disrespect our God.

Jesus’ name is sacred, it is filled with Power. He is God, His name should not be used as a way to get a laugh. The Catholic Church is given to us by God. If people have acted imperfectly in the Church, it is sad, not funny. The child later told a joke to his mother, which dishonored Jesus, Mary and Joseph. The show continued with other disrespectful things.

At one point the sister came to the children’s home. They said they did not have anything holy hanging on the walls. The daughter brought out the picture of the Sacred Heart of Jesus,  this one, the one in the front of the Blue Book. Jesus requested this picture with His messages. This picture landed face down on the floor with a big noise and a girl said something like, "Oh the picture fell from the wall." Next she hung Jesus’ picture on the refrigerator door. The dad later turned around and saw Jesus and hollered, "Christ", amazed to see the picture there. He opened the door to get something out of the refrigerator and closed the door and the picture hung at an angle from the refrigerator door. I adore that image of Jesus and his most precious Heart. There was much more, including references to hell. Jesus15(1).gif (23956 bytes)


Mary has appeared 500 times to tell me of souls dropping into hell. Here is the message Mary delivered at Fatima July 13, 1917. She showed the three young children a vision of hell.


"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"

(From The Spirituality of Fatima and Medjugorje, pp. 14-15.)


Messenger: Jesus suffered so much anguish to His precious Heart. He gave Himself to His death on the cross to save souls. Some souls, despite His death, are lost. He sweat Blood in the garden. I love the Catholic faith. I love the Church. I want my children to respect and love it. The things of God are sacred. The Second Commandment tells us we must not take the name of the Lord Our God in vain. He must be first. We must respect and honor our God and our Lady and our Church. The Church is in the state of becoming more and more as Christ wishes. The Church is the teacher of faith and morals. The Pope is the chief-teacher in the Church.

The doctrines of the Catholic faith are rooted in truth, the word, the Commandments, the catechism, the encyclicals of the Popes and so forth. However, the people in the body, which is the Church can sin and can operate imperfectly.

The Good Shepherd gives us prayers to pray for our Church and our world. We all have to pray for one another. We have been partially blocked in doing what Jesus has asked us regarding praying the prayers to pray for our priests and the Church and the world. Please hear Him. Our focus is to do what Our Lady asked at Fatima to have peace. Our focus is to do what Our Lord has asked us to do - to pray the Prayers of the Good Shepherd, (in the Shepherds of Christ Prayer Manual). We have been greatly blocked in spreading these prayers in our town where Mary appeared to me 500 times, begging us to listen to her requests. She said some of her children were going to hell. Mary refers to all men as her children. Mary told us we must reach the school children, the young children, with the rosary mediations with the Imprimatur. We should begin Junior Shepherds of Christ prayer chapters, praying for our priests and the renewal of the Church and the world. We have had little success in beginning these prayer chapters here in our town. We have had little success beginning the School Rosary Program in parish schools. We have had little success here in beginning prayer chapters in churches. After Falmouth flooded, Our Lord said He wanted the people to begin prayer chapters there and children to pray the rosary. We have been blocked trying to begin these prayer chapters and getting all to do as Mary asked us to do at Fatima. From January 1, 1995, - September 5, 1995, Mary appeared every day begging me to reach the young children with the rosary and consecration, wanting me to spread the school rosary meditations. To this day, we have had little success, yet our children are coming home pregnant and on drugs and many do not really live by the Ten Commandments. When Mary appeared to me, she promised to protect our children if we did as she requested. They focused on me and not the message and went their merry way. Some here in this city highlighted parts of God’s Blue Book and called all the bookstores in the city to get them removed.

The message of Our Lord in God's Blue Book I, II, and III and all the writings are clear. He tells of His undying love and the great gift He gives us in the Eucharist. In the later writings the focus is on deeper and deeper union with Him in the Mass.

These messages were blocked at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center, and the Falmouth Farm. The corner of the building collapsed at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center. Any attempt to get prayer chapters started from Falmouth failed.

These events were accounted all through the month of March. The messages of March indicate Mary’s firm desire to spread the school rosary program to schoolchildren. In March Mary and Jesus stressed the great gift of the Eucharist and the need for adoration. The message for the Earth from Jesus to begin prayer chapters has been on so frequently in the March and April messages. We were told of the necessity to spread the priestly newsletter.

Mary warned on March 20, 1999, of a bomb and Jesus on March 22, 1999, at 2:00 p.m. made reference to bombs because we were not listening.

March 20, 1999 at 6:45 p.m.
Mary speaks: WILL A BOMB of enormous proportions rock the plugs in your ears? (this can be found on the Internet on March 21, 1999)

March 22, 1999 at 2:00 p.m.
Jesus speaks:
Your earth will be shaken with bombs that will shake your senseless ways.

On Thursday night I sat in the theater and I begged God to do something. The name of Jesus Christ was being dishonorably used. I begged Him to stop it.

I left at intermission. I went home and cried harder than ever before in front of the picture of the Sacred Heart which was misused in the play. I love my God. He is worthy of all honor and respect, praise and thanksgiving. The people in the theater laughed about our religion, the name of Jesus was used dishonorably. That night I cried deeper than ever before.

I was sorry for all the offenses committed this week after Easter against our risen Lord. Jesus, the Almighty God is truly present in the Eucharist and with us today. We should crowd our churches and adore Him and honor His holy name. We must realize the power in His holy name. We cannot use His name in vain, or make a joke of God. God is All-powerful. That which concerns God is sacred.

I begged the Father to do something. I begged and begged and asked Him to please stop this, knowing God has all the power. At 4:30 in the morning, I heard the thunder and I thought, "here comes the wrath of God".

Our Lady appeared to me 500 times daily from July 5, 1994, - September 5, 1995. She begs us to do what she told us at Fatima.

Mary speaks: I APPEAR, I APPEAR, I APPEAR AND I AM IGNORED.

I AM THE QUEEN OF PEACE.

  1. Pray the daily rosary.
  2. Consecrate your hearts to my Heart and the Heart of my Son.
  3. Observe the First Saturday devotion.
  4. Make reparation to Our Hearts.

Messenger: A review of the messages from March and April will show clearly the intensity and seriousness of the messages of Jesus and Mary.

Both Falmouth and the collapse of the Holy Spirit Center happened in March.


A message for the Earth from Jesus
January 22, 1998

I am the Good Shepherd, these are My prayers, the prayers I give to help renew the Church and the world, all prayer chapters are asked to include these prayers (found in the Shepherds of Christ Prayer Manual). As My Apostles and Shepherds I ask you to encourage all existing Chapters to try to encourage all existing prayer groups to pray the Shepherds of Christ prayers. Encourage all Churches to pray these prayers. It is most urgent that the people of this earth concur with the Father's wishes to begin Prayer Chapters. This is an urgent request from the Good Shepherd. The flock will become one when they have given their hearts to Jesus and Mary. Encourage all priests to pray the Shepherds of Christ prayers. Your world will be lighted with great light as the people of this earth pray these prayers.

My promise is this to you My beloved earth: When you give your heart to Me and spread the devotion to My Sacred Heart, I will write your name In My Heart. I promise to give the greatest graces when you pray these prayers for renewal of the Church and the world and take all who pray them deeply into My Heart. The prayers I give will bring about the reign of My Sacred Heart and the triumph of Mary's Immaculate Heart. I am Jesus Christ, this is My message of January 22, 1998, Please circulate this message to your world. I am the Good Shepherd, I know Mine and Mine know Me and they follow Me. Grace My Shepherds, I will give you the greatest graces for spreading these words to this earth and to your Church. I love you, I am Jesus Christ, the Son of Man, it is the Plan of the Father that Prayer Chapters are begun immediately and the Priestly Newsletter is given to all priests. The Voice of the Good Shepherd speaks through it.


Messenger: I quote from the Cincinnati Enquirer from that morning when I heard the storm: "A killer tornado ripped through the Tristate in 57 erratic and terrifying minutes early Friday, leaving four people dead, dozens injured and hundreds of homes destroyed or severely damaged." I did not want people hurt, I begged Him to get their attention.

I ask you to help me to do as Our Lady and Our Lord have requested.

The same time Falmouth flooded, so did the city of Cincinnati. Whether you feel any connection between this and the messages, know this:

Heaven has chosen this city in which Mary appeared and Jesus gave tremendous messages of His love. Please help us to do as They have asked us. Please pray!


Matthew 21:42

The stone which the builders rejected
has become the cornerstone;
this is the Lord’s doing
and we marvel at it?

Messenger: When Mary appeared to me, a man asked me if I would continue to go in there for her visits, since people did not believe. When some highlighted the Blue Books, they tried to stop the message.

A meeting of many was called. They sat around a big table and said to me, "Don’t you care what people are saying about the Blue Books?" I said, "Jesus is giving the messages. God is talking to me. It doesn’t matter what people think when God is talking to you, when Mary is talking to you. You will try and try to deliver the message." I want to reach the souls of this earth with the message that God loves them and they must pray and quit offending God.


Acts 4:13-21

They were astonished at the fearlessness shown by Peter and John, considering that they were uneducated laymen; and they recognised them as associates of Jesus; but when they saw the man who had been cured standing by their side, they could find no answer. So they ordered them to stand outside while the Sanhedrin had a private discussion. ‘What are we going to do with these men?’ they asked. ‘It is obvious to everybody in Jerusalem that a notable miracle has been worked through them, and we cannot deny it. But to stop the whole thing spreading any further among the people, let us threaten them against ever speaking to anyone in this name again.’

So they called them in and gave them a warning on no account to make statements or to teach in the name of Jesus. But Peter and John retorted, ‘You must judge whether in God’s eyes it is right to listen to you and not to God. We cannot stop proclaiming what we have seen and heard.’ The court repeated the threats and then released them; they could not think of any way to punish them, since all the people were giving glory to God for what had happened. The man who had been miraculously cured was over forty years old.


Messenger: Today’s Scripture reading at church from Acts 4:13-21, referred to the Apostles healing in the NAME of Jesus. I speak of His Name, I tell of how Jesus wants to be loved and honored in the Eucharist and how we really need to pray the rosary as Mary said at Fatima.

(From The Spirituality of Fatima and Medjugorje, p. 16.)

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

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

Messenger: We pray hourly: "Oh Jesus, Who hast said, all that you ask of the Father in My Name, He will grant you, through the intercession of Mary, Thy Most Holy Mother, I feel confident that my prayer will be granted."

His Holy Name is so powerful. I speak in His Name, I speak the message God delivers.

WE MUST AMEND OUR WAYS

Mary is the Queen of Peace. She appears in Florida on the building delivering the message of Fatima. If we wish peace, we must obey her. She appears to lead us to the Eucharistic Heart of her Son Jesus.

Mary speaks: I APPEAR, I APPEAR, I APPEAR AND I AM IGNORED.

I AM THE QUEEN OF PEACE.

  1. Pray the daily rosary.
  2. Consecrate your hearts to my Heart and the Heart of my Son.
  3. Observe the First Saturday devotion.
  4. Make reparation to Our Hearts.

Messenger: His Name is to be exalted and honored.

God has all the power.

When we disobeyed the Fatima message, there was World War II, as Mary had told us.


"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"

(From The Spirituality of Fatima and Medjugorje, pp. 14-15.)


Messenger: Mary has appeared at Medjugorje - We see the wars and devastation surrounding Medjugorje. She has appeared daily there. In the early 1990’s, we see how close the war was to Medjugorje.

She appeared at Falmouth. The town was flooded.

Great gifts have been given to man in the Eucharist.

Great gifts were given in the Cincinnati area with all the appearances of our Lady and Our Lord.

Great gifts were given when Our Lord delivered the Blue Book messages to lead men to His love, especially in the Eucharist.

I beg you to help by praying the rosary with your children, in spreading the priestly newsletter (centered in consecration) to the priests and religious.

I beg you to pray the prayers Our Lord has given to help with the renewal of the Church and the world (Shepherds of Christ Prayer Manual).

The world is in need of renewal. Only God’s grace can heal our world and help our Church. We must pray for our priests, our shepherds, as Our Lord has requested. They are leaders in the Church. We must:

PRAY FOR OUR CHURCH AND OUR WORLD. PRAY AS A BODY.

WE MUST HONOR THE HOLY NAME OF JESUS.

Whether you believe the messages concerning the disasters or not, please listen to the words of Jesus and Mary and help us by praying.

We must reach the children with the rosary and the consecration and help them to find rest in their God.

They are hungry.

Our world is on a fine line. It needs to pray to God.

Only God’s grace will change the world. We must pray for this.

From today’s Gospel:


Mark 16:15

And he said to them, ‘Go out to the whole world; proclaim the gospel to all creation.’


Messenger: He has all the power. He controls our breath, the sun, the rain. He is Almighty. He is God.


Fatima: The Setting

"On October 13, 1917, there were more than 70,000 people gathered in the Cova da Iria in Fatima, Portugal. They had come to observe a miracle which had been foretold by the Blessed Virgin to three young visionaries: Lucia dos Santos, and her two cousins, Jacinta and Francisco Marto.1 Shortly after noon, Our Lady appeared to the three visionaries:

As the Lady was about to leave, she pointed to the sun. Lucy excitedly repeated the gesture, and the people looked into the sky. The rain had ceased, the clouds parted, and the sun shone forth, but not in its usual brilliance. Instead, it appeared like a silver disc, pale as the moon, at which all could gaze without straining their eyes. Suddenly, impelled by some mysterious force, the disc began to whirl in the sky, casting off great shafts of multicolored light. Red, green, blue, yellow, violet--the enormous rays shot across the sky at all angles, lighting up the entire countryside for many miles around, but particularly the upturned faces of those 70,000 spellbound people.

After a few moments the wonder stopped, but resumed again a second and a third time--three times in all--within about 12 minutes. It seemed that the whole world was on fire, with the sun spinning at a greater speed each time.

Then a gasp of terror rose from the crowd, for the sun seemed to tear itself from the heavens and come crashing down upon the horrified multitude.... Just when it seemed that the ball of fire would fall upon and destroy them, the miracle ceased, and the sun resumed its normal place in the sky, shining forth as peacefully as ever.

When the people arose from the ground, cries of astonishment were heard on all sides. Their clothes, which had been soaking wet and muddy, now were clean and dry. Many of the sick and crippled had been cured of their afflictions.2

"The above describes the great miracle which brought to conclusion the series of apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima which took place six times, from May to October 1917. The Miracle of the Sun was the sign God gave to the world in proof of the authenticity of the apparitions. The event was reported in newspapers around the world.

"With one exception, Mary always appeared on the 13th of the month, above an holm oak tree in the valley named Cova da Iria. The only deviation from the 13th was the August apparition. During this particular month, Mary appeared to the children near the village of Valinhos on August 19. The children were in jail on the 13th of that particular month. The mayor, in an attempt to stop the events, had had the young visionaries kidnapped and imprisoned, but fearing violence on the part of the people, he soon released them.

"Since the apparitions of 1917, millions of pilgrims have come to Fatima. Fatima is a small, rural town about 90 miles north of Lisbon, Portugal. It is situated within hilly terrain which is lined with numerous cedar trees. The Cova da Iria--grazing ground at the time of the apparitions--now appears as a huge, paved area which lies in front of the Basilica of Our Lady of Fatima. About 50 yards in front of the Basilica, and to the left as one faces the Basilica, is the Chapel of Apparitions. Here, within the sanctuary, is a glass-enclosed statue of Our Lady of Fatima. The statue is situated on the spot of the holm oak tree over which Our Lady appeared to Lucia, Jacinta, and Francisco."

(From The Spirituality of Fatima and Medjugorje, pp. 3-5)


Messenger: Today a very good friend of ours, a shepherd in the Shepherds of Christ Movement was buried. He was 67 years old. He copied thousands of tapes for Shepherds of Christ. His name was Don, please pray for him and his family.


Question for married couples and others in intimate relationships:

Q:  How do you feel we can spend more tim together living the Gospel message from today's Mass? (Mark 16:15 - "And he said to them, 'Go out to the whole world proclaim the gospel to all creation.' ")

How does spreading this message to the world and working for Jesus make me feel as a person?
