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.

Messenger: No matter what I do, my actions must be God's will
My feelings do not dictate how I act. Mary acted purely — always in love. Mary did God's will to build the Kingdom.
The devil can work in people if they let him, he tries to influence how they will act, how they will feel.
Events many times fall exactly the way you would not
The devil is a prowling lion looking for one to devour.
Is it God's will I do this, then I must do it, I do not
give into actions of others that may cause me
pain and change the course of my actions because
I am hurting inside, I keep in front of me God's
will for me, praying to act in pure love,
praying to promote God's Kingdom.
I opened the Blue Book and read this
Faith and Trust
March 4, 1994 5:15 a.m...."Oh, God, My God, why have You forsaken Me? It is finished and your salvation is won." For your love, to My death I give you My Body. My child, I shed My Blood and gave you My life that you will be with Me forever in heaven. Not a day, a month or a year, but forever with Me in Heaven."I am the true Bread come down from heaven. He who eats My flesh will have life forever. For the drink I give is My Blood and the food you eat is My Body. Who would lay down his life for a friend? I did, for you! I love you this much, My child. Forget about those who reject you. You have My life that I give for you and I give life eternal."
Messenger: Think of Jesus calling out in those anguishing
hours ...'My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?'

The Pain - Naples, Florida
Messenger: He spread His arms, He gave His all, Jesus, the Son of God, the greatest sacrifice, He gave Himself entirely for the good of all men. He opened His arms, He died on the cross.
His arms were covered with blood, His arms so weak and filled with pain, wounded. His arms, the pain shot up His arms and the final blow to each arm a nail through each precious hand.
All the agony He experienced, all the pain, and the crown, to each arm, a nail hammered into the hand.
All the nerves cut and severed by the nail, the pain shooting up His precious arms, the final blow given to His most precious members.
The legs that carried Him, that carried the heavy cross, the legs that were forced and cajoled, that continues to Calvary - the legs weakened, skinned, bleeding, beaten, burned, the legs that knew patience and perseverance, the legs connected to a sore foot that was rubbed and gashed and bleeding, the members of Jesus, filled with such pain and exhaustion, now is crowned with the final glory. The nail that was driven into the foot, the pain shot up this already weakened leg, covered with blood and wounds and pain, the final blow, the nerves severed by the hammered nail.
A blow to each hand, a blow to each foot, a blow to the head, a stamping that pressed down and continued in excruciating pain.
Jesus: They numbered all My bones. They gave Me vinegar and gall to drink. They gave Me a cloth to wipe My blood-covered flesh.
What did they give to Me? Love is giving, My dear ones. How many of you are wounded when you are not given things by your brothers you love?
My members were in such pain, the pain shot up My arms. My legs were so weak I could scarce move them. I was filled with pain within them.
To all who watched, they saw a man, weakened and covered with blood and wounds. They did not see the pain inside that shot up My legs and arms, the nerves inside My body that sent signals of deep pain to My central nervous system. They did not see the nerves inside sending pain signals everywhere.
The final blow being to each hand and foot, the severing of My nerves by the blunt and rusted nails.
An arm extended. A final blow. I beheld a nail pounded into My hand and the pain shot up My arms, unbearable to a human mind.
Do you know of the pain within My body? Signals sending messages of deep pain everywhere. I knew all of these sufferings in the garden. So great were the sufferings to My mind, I sweat blood.
My flesh was covered with wounds. My arms were stretched from their sockets. My body was beaten and bleeding, every inch of My body covered with deep wounds. But, My loved ones, you miss the depth of My love. My wounds were so deep, but the final wound, the pounding of the nails in My hands and feet, a severing of the nerves, an ending of the deepest pain, to experience even deeper pain, beyond your human comprehension, it was done to the Almighty God, a Divine Person, I suffered the final blow to each member.
The pounding in the hands and feet, the crown to each member, and they numbered all My bones. My nerves a network of pain running throughout My entire body.
The pain within the body, the pain recorded in My loving head, the pain sent by a network of nerves in My body, now records the final blows, the nails in the hands and feet, the pain being recorded from every thorn that pierced My skull, every gash to My body, the pain, the pain, the pain - a network of signals and pain, running through My body and the final hour, the pains recorded on the cross, arms outstretched - a surrendering to all pain. I surrendered to a body laden with pain.
You focus on your little problems, your little aches and pains. You discuss them and show the world your pin pricks and sufferings.
Do you want to know holiness and love? They gave Me vinegar mixed with gall. This was their offering. They gave Me a cross. They crowned My head with a crown of thorns.
This, My dear ones, is suffering, My beloved souls, I gave My life for and this is their return.
A severing of My nerves, the final blows to all the aches and pains recorded in My nervous system. This was one of the final blows - the rusted nails pounded into My hands.
You will feel little aches and pains in your hands and feet to remind you of this message. Your understanding of the immense pain within will deepen. What was visible to the eye on My battered body was nothing compared to the pains within. I gave My all. I gave My insides, My mind, My Heart, wounded for the love of men.
All functions in the body were stopped.
The final curtain, blood and water pouring out from My Heart, show that all functions of the body had ended.
R: All signals that carried messages of immense pain had ended, the final act of surrender for God to die to this human body and surrender His flesh.
Jesus: And end, a beginning, the water and blood flowed from My Heart, the beginning of My life in the Church, life flowing into your spirit.
R: Come give me life, abundant life. I thirst to be with Thee.
Jesus: My blood was spent. My human flesh and blood offered as the sacrifice, the sacrifice of Calvary is now made present at every Mass.
An end, a beginning, and the grace and life flow through the sacraments in the Church. My life flows to you in the Mass. Mary, the Mediatrix of all grace, stands by the side of the altar and the grace flows from the Father, through My body offered up as a sacrifice in the Holy Spirit, given through the Mothership of Mary to you in the Church.
You stand under the cross with My Mother and you receive the gift given, My Body, My Blood.
R: Man is reconciled with the Father through the Divine Person, Jesus Christ, and you receive His life poured out to you as Calvary is made present in the unbloody sacrifice of Jesus Christ.
Do you feel the graces poured out to you at this sacrifice of the Son of God at every Mass? Do you feel the presence of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit and Mary, all the angels and saints, and the souls in purgatory? Do you feel united as one at the sacrifice of Calvary sacramentally made present upon the altar through the priest? The priest who now puts on Christ and through Him the dispenser of this life given to man.
Jesus: Oh, My beloved ones, love so dearly your priest. Give him such reverence. He is the chosen instrument of God and you treat him with such ordinariness. You are so blind and so dumb in your ways.
And they numbered all My bones. Each nerve carrying a message of My love of mankind, each member in My Church carrying a special message, all united as one working in harmony according to the Father's will, each carrying a message of love to one another.
The body is many members, you are the messengers of My love. Christ is the head. The message does not flow as it should when some are cut off from the Head.
They nailed My hands and feet and My nerves were severed by the nails, such pain, undescribable in words, the severing of My nerves from the body, the severing of many members from the body of Christ.
My Body given for all on the cross, the network of nerves within carrying the messages of My love to all mankind. My body covered on the outside with blood and wounded, the pain recorded within.
Your Church, covered with blood on the outside, the slaughter of innocent babies, the homosexuality, the sins of the flesh, the members that have severed themselves from the source by their sins, but the pain is carried in the nerves inside. The blood of the Lamb shed for each and every soul, the real pain carried within. The life is weakened in your Church because the love of God is so weak in many members. The messages of love are not being transmitted as they should be. Your body shows the wounds, but your pain within is the root of the problems. The pain is from the messages of love that are not being transmitted.
Unless you seek to fill your priests and sisters with the fire of God's love, fill their hearts with burning love for God, your Church will continue to show the marks of the blood shed without. I give to you these letters as a mighty medicine for this world, directed to make men's hearts burn with love of God and love of one another. The rosaries are meditations and messages given from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.
These messages will make men's hearts burn with fire for love of God.
You have ignored the importance of these letters.
I send to you the mighty medicine to heal a hurting world.
My priests and religious need these messages. The love of God will be transmitted to the Church from these messages when you circulate these letters.
The devil has blocked the minds of men involved in these messages because of their importance to the world and the Church.
I am speaking to you Fr. Carter to help to get these messages published and circulated as soon as possible. I give to you a mighty medicine for a sick world.
Read St. Thomas Aquinas about the medicine for the sick Church.
You know what these messages have done for you. I am Jesus. I give to you the mighty medicine for a sick world, for a sick Church, rosaries and letters from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.
Your Church shows the wounds of bloodshed, abortion, homosexuality, sins of the flesh, murder of little children's minds with sex education in Catholic schools and you hold back the gifts of God's love I am giving to the Church and this world.
My arms were weak and wounded but the final blow as the nail put in My hand. It severed the nerves.
The final blow is the bloodshed in the Church, the slaughtering of children's minds in Catholic schools. My children are pure and innocent. They are not being taught messages of God's love, they are being taught messages of sick sex and coldness.
Men's hearts have turned cold. They have been severed from the life of the body. The body is decaying from within. Only with the love of God enkindled in men's hearts will this bloodshed stop.
I beg you to publish and circulate these messages in the Church. I am Jesus. I am giving you the mighty medicine for the world. Your body wears the marks of the bloodshed, only with messages of My on-fire love will it stop.
Mary leads you to Jesus. Never is she the end. The Father has a plan. Mary's messages have led men and will lead men to Jesus. Satan has tried to stop all efforts to publish and circulate these messages. I am the Almighty God. The funds will come when you circulate and publish these messages and rosaries under the Shepherds of Christ Publishing. I am working with Fr. Carter and Rita as messenger to renew the Church and the world. Each messenger has a very vital role in the Father's plan. The significance of these messages are being overlooked. You are not studying the messages as a whole and their content. There are five unpublished Blue Books and more than four Rosary Books which I and My Mother have given to this world in the last 14 months. I have also given 15 songs of My love. I am begging you to see to the recording and publishing of this music. I beg you to listen. This is the mighty medicine for the Church and the world to draw men to the burning love of Jesus. Please harken to My call. I will send you the money. You must study and read these messages. This is a fulfillment of Fatima - these messages were given to bring priests to the burning love of Jesus. I am Jesus, your beloved Savior.
end of June 26, 1995 message
Messenger: Jesus did not stop His actions because He was in pain.
My job is to operate in love, purity of heart,
building the Kingdom even when I am crying,
suffering rejection and knowing God allows us to suffer,
but continuing to let our actions be dictated
by what God wants us to do to promote His Kingdom.
The devil can try to manipulate things so people
want to flee. God may ask us to suffer so much we
want to flee, when the very cross we must endure
will make the difference, if we flee from the scene,
the devil may have won for pressing on us in a
certain given situation.
Endurance, prayer, purity of heart, doing
God's will to promote the Kingdom. Sometimes
we may have to leave if it is not God's will we
stay, but remember, the devil tries to manipulate feelings in people to get them to flee, feel they can't
take it any longer.
Some of my hardest projects, for example, writing the school rosary brochure, I did in tears.
When faced with a mountain, I won't give up —
I will pray for strength and beg for grace.

Messenger: In China Indiana we will pray for healing of hurt memories, healing of the family tree.
From The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius, Loyola University Press
TAKE, LORD, AND RECEIVE
Take, Lord, and receive all my liberty, my memory, my understanding, and my entire will, all that I have and possess. Thou hast given all to me. To Thee, O Lord, I return it. All is Thine, dispose of it wholly according to Thy will. Give me Thy love and Thy grace, for this is sufficient for me.

Words of Jesus to Members
of Shepherds of Christ Associates:
"My beloved priest-companion, I intend to use the priestly newsletter, Shepherds of Christ, and the movement, Shepherds of Christ Associates, in a powerful way for the renewal of My Church and the world.
"I will use the newsletter and the chapters of Shepherds of Christ Associates as a powerful instrument for spreading devotion to My Heart and My Mother's Heart.
"I am calling many to become members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. To all of them I will give great blessings. I will use them as instruments to help bring about the triumph of the Immaculate Heart and the reign of My Sacred Heart. I will give great graces to the members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. I will call them to be deeply united to My Heart and to Mary's Heart as I lead them ever closer to My Father in the Holy Spirit."
- Message from Jesus to Father Edward J. Carter, S.J., Founder, as given on July 31, 1994,
feast of Saint Ignatius Loyola, Founder of the Society of Jesus (The Jesuits)
Jesus speaks: My child to be attached inordinately to anything is to be inordinately attached. Pray to let go of inordinate attachments.
Focus on My love — pray the rosary.
Be empowered by focusing on My love.

Messenger: No person can love me like Jesus.
I cannot harbor hurt feelings or anger.
My way is to love.
My way is to build God's Kingdom.
People are hurt in the world.
They act hatefully, sometimes we cannot even sort out
the behavior of others.
Jesus speaks: They believe something so much because they were taught it in childhood or they were wounded as children and now place the blame for their pain on someone new — or harbor hurt feelings deep inside and still act them out.
Doing this may block their happiness in their present life.
They hold onto hatred and bitterness — they keep it going in their heart —
killing any chance for real peace inside.
Peace is found in a pure heart.
A heart of hate, a heart of anger, a heart of untruths and lies
will never know peace.
Examination of conscience is important. Humility is truth.
A person that sees themselves as a victim, that wants to be over people against God's will
is only hurting themselves.
First to thine own self be true.
Truth—My people—Truth—I am a God of justice.
You cannot lie to Me, I know your heart —
Messenger: Who has power?
In dysfunctional homes there is an imbalance of power,
usually a hero and a scapegoat.
People who come home after growing up and
visiting for Easter, Christmas, holidays may experience severe set backs in relationships if from dysfunctional homes.
The powerful children, hero, etc. — try to force the same dance on family member automatically if recovery has not been part of their life.
A sibling may begin to work on the scapegoat right away. They try to put the scapegoat in their place the first words spoken at the airport, for example.
A trip home may be a battle before, during and afterward for the one child who lived a life
as the family scapegoat and when leaving they have to deal with the same worthless feelings they had all their life at home as others played a game of "smarter children" — "more in the in".
People who come from dysfunctional homes who try to break
old patterns are met with resistance many times by other
Like badges worn in an army, the children return home to be branded once again — hero–scapegoat – etc.
The ones who have not worked on being fair and loving will do many manipulations to resume imbalance of power.
No one will listen to the scapegoat if they try to set up what is fair —
for the rules were engraved in childhood — the dance practiced growing up and if most members have not ever looked at the situation — no reasoning could change what they see as — normal and rules.
The rule is you are the scapegoat amongst those who have not undergone any recovery — you are to do that dance — suffer abuse — ridicule and disrespect at the hands of the other family members.
A person who has worked through the 12 steps or done an Ignatian retreat and lives by these principles has usually examined their conscience and want to live doing justice to all.
The Ignatian retreat that one priest believes was given by Our Lady is a wonderful way to advance in the spiritual life.
It is rooted in the first principle

Messenger: Our retreat in China (Ignatian/Shepherds of Christ Retreat) may not be for seriously dysfunctional homes, but can help many people grow very deeply in the spiritual life and helps us to look at our own sins and look at the workings of satan in our lives and look at our inordinate attachments.
The retreat is so powerful helping us to meditate more deeply on the lives of Jesus and Mary each day for 4 days as a new mystery of the rosary is taken each day of the retreat.
Mary is the New Eve and Jesus is the New Adam.
Dysfunction and bad patterns of behavior are passed down from generation to generation —
Much is enforced by strong willed individuals — loud and forceful to little children, little children,
who are learning patterns of behavior as infants.
God intended men and women to live in love and work out their problems of imperfections as they grow in deeper relationships — many as partners in marriage
having holy families rooted in Him — living by the ten commandments in love and respecting one another.
In dysfunctional homes feelings are not shared many times, communication is very poor — one may fail to communicate small matters and holler if anyone asks a question, if the communication problem is very severe, others may want family members to hop to and jump at their request, but present a relaxed atmosphere to those outside the family circle. The focus can be so severe about what others think of them outside the circle of the family — the whole focus is to create a beautiful picture for the important people out there — are they accepted — does their own people in their own family shame them — dysfunction is a sad thing — all families have certain dysfunctions — but marriage and family life exist to work as a unit in love — rooted in God trying to be more perfected as the Heavenly Father is perfect.
Man is created in the image and likeness of God.
We see the two stories at the beginning of the bible —
Adam and Eve with willfulness and pride
Cain and Abel — Jealousy and death
1 Corinthians 15: 20-58
In fact, however, Christ has been raised from the dead, as the first–fruits of all who have fallen asleep. As it was by one man that death came, so through one man has come the resurrection of the dead. Just as all die in Adam, so in Christ all will be brought to life; but all of them in their proper order: Christ the first–fruits, and next, at his coming, those who belong to him. After that will come the end, when he will hand over the kingdom to God the Father, having abolished every principality, every ruling force and power. For he is to be king until he has made his enemies his footstool, and the last of the enemies to be done away with is death, for he has put all things under his feet. But when it is said everything is subjected, this obviously cannot include the One who subjected everything to him. When everything has been subjected to him, then the Son himself will be subjected to the One who has subjected everything to him, so that God may be all in all.
Otherwise, what are people up to who have themselves baptised on behalf of the dead? If the dead are not raised at all, what is the point of being baptised on their behalf? And what about us? Why should we endanger ourselves every hour of our lives? I swear by the pride that I take in you, in Christ Jesus our Lord, that I face death every day. If I fought wild animals at Ephesus in a purely human perspective, what had I to gain by it? If the dead are not going to be raised, then Let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we shall be dead. So do not let anyone lead you astray, ‘Bad company corrupts good ways.’ Wake up from your stupor as you should and leave sin alone; some of you have no understanding of God; I tell you this to instil some shame in you.
Someone may ask: How are dead people raised, and what sort of body do they have when they come? How foolish! What you sow must die before it is given new life; and what you sow is not the body that is to be, but only a bare grain, of wheat I dare say, or some other kind; it is God who gives it the sort of body that he has chosen for it, and for each kind of seed its own kind of body.
Not all flesh is the same flesh: there is human flesh; animals have another kind of flesh, birds another and fish yet another. Then there are heavenly bodies and earthly bodies; the heavenly have a splendour of their own, and the earthly a different splendour. The sun has its own splendour, the moon another splendour, and the stars yet another splendour; and the stars differ among themselves in splendour. It is the same too with the resurrection of the dead: what is sown is perishable, but what is raised is imperishable; what is sown is contemptible but what is raised is glorious; what is sown is weak, but what is raised is powerful; what is sown is a natural body, and what is raised is a spiritual body.
If there is a natural body, there is a spiritual body too. So the first man, Adam, as scripture says, became a living soul; and the last Adam has become a life–giving spirit. But first came the natural body, not the spiritual one; that came only afterwards. The first man, being made of earth, is earthly by nature; the second man is from heaven. The earthly man is the pattern for earthly people, the heavenly man for heavenly ones. And as we have borne the likeness of the earthly man, so we shall bear the likeness of the heavenly one.
What I am saying, brothers, is that mere human nature cannot inherit the kingdom of God: what is perishable cannot inherit what is imperishable. Now I am going to tell you a mystery: we are not all going to fall asleep, but we are all going to be changed, instantly, in the twinkling of an eye, when the last trumpet sounds. The trumpet is going to sound, and then the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed, because this perishable nature of ours must put on imperishability, this mortal nature must put on immortality.
And after this perishable nature has put on imperishability and this mortal nature has put on immortality, then will the words of scripture come true: Death is swallowed up in victory. Death, where is your victory? Death, where is your sting? The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin comes from the Law. Thank God, then, for giving us the victory through Jesus Christ our Lord.
So, my dear brothers, keep firm and immovable, always abounding in energy for the Lord’s work, being sure that in the Lord none of your labours is wasted.
They surrounded Christ, they condemned Him to death.
The injustices done to others are revealed in the end.
Think of a situation and how we could have loved.
Our focus has to be to be as Christ wants us to be.
When we give into anger we lose our momentum many times.
We must constantly pray trying to realize God's will for us — not giving into hurt feelings if it blocks what God is telling us to do. Christ must be the King and center of our hearts.
Our purpose is to build His kingdom.
Every time Matt had an important job to do he would have some negative emotion — some old memory how he was treated and he gave into it and then nothing was accomplished. I am not saying to negate all feelings because they help us understand some things and ourselves and help us to set up boundaries — but satan can tempt us to go off if we give into old thoughts of memories that will hurt us in the long run and keep us from moving on in our relationships.
We have to learn to forgive things or we are held captive waiting for a new attack from satan to come and try to get us to give into hurt memories and bad feelings — we can have our periods of grief, but eventually we have to move out of deep hurts to help ourselves grow in the spiritual life.
Some children blame their parents life long. They never faced their own anger or anger that was passed down from generation's past. They are stuck in a pattern of hatred and their hearts are clogged like a clogged up pipe. Forgiveness leads to healing and peace. You can remember the problem, but you willfully forgive in your heart so you do not let the emotions of unforgiveness eat you away — bitterness — hatred etc. in a heart will block peace, love and intimate relationships.
I love the Blue Books —
Jesus speaks to me and helps me see how much He loves me and that is not a little love.
My strength comes from this.

Genesis 1: 1-13
In the beginning God created heaven and earth. Now the earth was a formless void, there was darkness over the deep, with a divine wind sweeping over the waters.
God said, ‘Let there be light,’ and there was light. God saw that light was good, and God divided light from darkness. God called light ‘day’, and darkness he called ‘night’. Evening came and morning came: the first day.
God said, ‘Let there be a vault through the middle of the waters to divide the waters in two.’ And so it was. God made the vault, and it divided the waters under the vault from the waters above the vault. God called the vault ‘heaven’. Evening came and morning came: the second day.
God said, ‘Let the waters under heaven come together into a single mass, and let dry land appear.’ And so it was. God called the dry land ‘earth’ and the mass of waters ‘seas’, and God saw that it was good.
God said, ‘Let the earth produce vegetation: seed–bearing plants, and fruit trees on earth, bearing fruit with their seed inside, each corresponding to its own species.’ And so it was. The earth produced vegetation: the various kinds of seed–bearing plants and the fruit trees with seed inside, each corresponding to its own species. God saw that it was good. Evening came and morning came: the third day.
Genesis 22: 1-3
It happened some time later that God put Abraham to the test. ‘Abraham, Abraham!’ he called. ‘Here I am,’ he replied. God said, ‘Take your son, your only son, your beloved Isaac, and go to the land of Moriah, where you are to offer him as a burnt offering on one of the mountains which I shall point out to you.’
Early next morning Abraham saddled his donkey and took with him two of his servants and his son Isaac. He chopped wood for the burnt offering and started on his journey to the place which God had indicated to him.

When I go to Mass I offer a sacrifice. God wants our all. He wants to be first in our life. He asked Abraham to sacrifice his son.
The Father gave His Son for us. This is how great the Father's love is for us.
When we go to the altar many times we are suffering. We want something really bad, but we know we love God the most. What the Father asks for us is to offer that which we are so attached to as a sacrifice, united to the sacrifice of His Son, Jesus. If we offer this sacrifice to Him, the Father will pour out blessings that will be divine blessings, greater than anything we could have here on earth.
The Mass is the perfect sacrifice we offer to the Father, in which God pours out His blessings and we are one with Him and with all others in a profound expression of love. God shares His divine love with us and we partake in an intense way in His divine loving capacity. In order to become one in Him and to feel His love like this, we must surrender ourselves and be open.
He told Abraham to offer his son. God gave him his son back. He wanted Abraham to love God above all things and people.
Jesus offered Himself as a sacrifice to the Father. This is the most pleasing sacrifice to the Father. If He gave His Son Who died for love of us, will He deny us when we unite our petitions with Jesus and offer these at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass?
He took them to the highest mountain and He was transfigured before them in the greatest light.
We go to the altar of sacrifice. The mountain to come, in which so many graces will flow, is the altar of sacrifice where the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is offered through the hands of consecrated priests.
We hear the Father say, "This is My beloved Son in whom I am well pleased, listen to Him." He is speaking to us. He is the Word. He is speaking in these messages. He is unveiling the Scriptures and speaking to us in plain talk. This is a great gift He is giving to us.
We are transformed in the Mass. We unite with the greatest sacrifice offered in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. We have the most perfect sacrifice to offer to the Father when we offer this sacrifice. He gives us great blessings. We die to ourselves, we become white.
We must unite all of our sacrifices to this Holy Sacrifice of the Mass being said all over the world. This is the greatest way to magnify all of our offerings - by uniting everything we do as an offering, a sacrifice to the Father in union with His Son.
Exodus 14: 15-18
Yahweh then said to Moses, ‘Why cry out to me? Tell the Israelites to march on. Your part is to raise your staff and stretch out your hand over the sea and divide it, so that the Israelites can walk through the sea on dry ground, while I, for my part, shall make the Egyptians so stubborn that they will follow them, and I shall win glory for myself at the expense of Pharaoh and all his army, chariots and horsemen. And when I have won glory for myself at the expense of Pharaoh and his chariots and horsemen, the Egyptians will know that I am Yahweh.’
Sing Song: Come to the Water
Ezekial 36: 22-32
And so, say to the House of Israel, "The Lord Yahweh says this: I am acting not for your sake, House of Israel, but for the sake of my holy name, which you have profaned among the nations where you have gone. I am going to display the holiness of my great name, which has been profaned among the nations, which you have profaned among them. And the nations will know that I am Yahweh–declares the Lord Yahweh–when in you I display my holiness before their eyes. For I shall take you from among the nations and gather you back from all the countries, and bring you home to your own country. I shall pour clean water over you and you will be cleansed; I shall cleanse you of all your filth and of all your foul idols. I shall give you a new heart, and put a new spirit in you; I shall remove the heart of stone from your bodies and give you a heart of flesh instead. I shall put my spirit in you, and make you keep my laws, and respect and practise my judgements. You will live in the country which I gave your ancestors. You will be my people and I shall be your God. I shall save you from everything that defiles you, I shall summon the wheat and make it plentiful and impose no more famines on you. I shall increase the yield of tree and field, so that you will never again bear the ignominy of famine among the nations. Then you will remember your evil conduct and actions. You will loathe yourselves for your guilt and your loathsome practices. I assure you that I am not doing this for your sake–declares the Lord Yahweh. Be ashamed and blush for your conduct, House of Israel.
Romans 6: 3-11
You cannot have forgotten that all of us, when we were baptised into Christ Jesus, were baptised into his death. So by our baptism into his death we were buried with him, so that as Christ was raised from the dead by the Father’s glorious power, we too should begin living a new life. If we have been joined to him by dying a death like his, so we shall be by a resurrection like his; realising that our former self was crucified with him, so that the self which belonged to sin should be destroyed and we should be freed from the slavery of sin. Someone who has died, of course, no longer has to answer for sin.
But we believe that, if we died with Christ, then we shall live with him too. We know that Christ has been raised from the dead and will never die again. Death has no power over him any more. For by dying, he is dead to sin once and for all, and now the life that he lives is life with God. In the same way, you must see yourselves as being dead to sin but alive for God in Christ Jesus.
Psalm 118: 1-2, 16-17, 22-23
Give thanks to Yahweh for he is good,
for his faithful love endures for ever.
Let the House of Israel say,
‘His faithful love endures for ever.’
Yahweh’s right hand is victorious,
Yahweh’s right hand is triumphant!’
I shall not die, I shall live
to recount the great deeds of Yahweh.
The stone which the builders rejected
has become the cornerstone;
This is Yahweh’s doing,
and we marvel at it.
Luke 24: 1-12
On the first day of the week, at the first sign of dawn, they went to the tomb with the spices they had prepared. They found that the stone had been rolled away from the tomb, but on entering they could not find the body of the Lord Jesus. As they stood there puzzled about this, two men in brilliant clothes suddenly appeared at their side. Terrified, the women bowed their heads to the ground. But the two said to them, ‘Why look among the dead for someone who is alive? He is not here; he has risen. Remember what he told you when he was still in Galilee: that the Son of man was destined to be handed over into the power of sinful men and be crucified, and rise again on the third day.’ And they remembered his words.
And they returned from the tomb and told all this to the Eleven and to all the others. The women were Mary of Magdala, Joanna, and Mary the mother of James. And the other women with them also told the apostles, but this story of theirs seemed pure nonsense, and they did not believe them.
Peter, however, went off to the tomb, running. He bent down and looked in and saw the linen cloths but nothing else; he then went back home, amazed at what had happened.
A Prayer before the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass
Let me be a holy sacrifice and unite with God in the sacrament of His greatest love.
I want to be one in Him in this act of love, where He gives Himself to me and I give myself as a sacrifice to Him. Let me be a holy sacrifice as I become one with Him in this my act of greatest love to Him.
Let me unite with Him more, that I may more deeply love Him. May I help make reparation to His adorable Heart and the heart of His Mother, Mary. With greatest love, I offer myself to You and pray that You will accept my sacrifice of greatest love. I give myself to You and unite in Your gift of Yourself to me. Come and possess my soul.
Cleanse me, strengthen me, heal me. Dear Holy Spirit act in the heart of Mary to make me more and more like Jesus.
Father, I offer this my sacrifice, myself united to Jesus in the Holy Spirit to You. Help me to love God more deeply in this act of my greatest love.
Give me the grace to grow in my knowledge, love and service of You and for this to be my greatest participation in the Mass. Give me the greatest graces to love You so deeply in this Mass, You who are so worthy of my love.
-God's Blue Book, December 27, 1995
April 16, 1995
This rosary was delivered on Easter Sunday in the Sorrowful Mother Chapel. Jesus came alive in the large Sacred Heart picture. He came out of the picture. Marty saw clusters of angels around the Sorrowful Mother statue. Mary and Jesus moved their eyes.
- Jesus: It is in your suffering that you will have immense union with Me.
- Jesus: As I died and rose on the third day, you, in your suffering, will rise to new life in Me.
- Jesus: You have come to Me and I am here waiting for you to share this time alone with you. Put your minds at rest and unite ever so closely to My Most Sacred Heart.
- R. Death has no power over Jesus! On the third day He rose victorious from the tomb, His body glistening in white. He truly rose to bring us new life. We are partakers in His divine life. The gift that we receive is far beyond our comprehension.
- Jesus: You are as the Easter lily. You come from a narrow place and you grow more and more in this life with Me. You will bud and blossom forth and My life will radiate to this world as you become absorbed and saturated with the divine life that I impart to you.
- Jesus: My power is endless for I am truly here and present in this room with you. Feel the vibrancy of My presence with you. I am Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living God, the resurrected Lord. I live and am present with you this very day.
- Jesus: The world has closed off their hearts. They have come, their hearts are hardened, their faces are hard. I am life! You must go out to this world and give the message of My immense love. Tell this world that I am alive and I have risen, that I am in your midst this day, that I live in such an abundant fashion in the hearts of men who are in the state of grace. You, My children, are so blind! I am so present to you! God lives and is in your midst and you do not see. You run down useless roads and look for such foolish things. Oh, how I love you, My beloved. I call you to a state of urgency to spread My message to this world.
- Jesus: As you are in your hearts, so shall you be in this world. I am Jesus, the risen Lord. I live on in the hearts of men this day. What you do here will affect the lives of so many souls. I beg you to preach the Gospel, to pray for fearlessness to carry this message to the hearts of all men.
- Jesus: I am totally with you in this room. You do not realize the immense gifts that I give to you.
- Jesus: In Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity, I am present! The risen Lord is with you, My beloved souls, this very day!
Song between decades: Come, Holy Spirit, fill our hearts. Enkindle in us the fire of Your love. Come Holy Spirit, fill our hearts. Enkindle in us the fire of Your love.
- Jesus: Before I ascended into heaven, I gave to the apostles the power to baptize and forgive sins. I give to My beloved priests this day this power through the Church. I give to each priest the power to change bread and wine into My most precious Body and Blood. How I love My Church and love My beloved priests-sons, for they are truly called. I live in this world today through My anointed ones.
- R. See Jesus as He raises His arms and ascends into heaven and a cloud takes Him from our sight. We live on faith. We see the consecrated Host but we do not comprehend the great gift we have that He truly remains with us this day in the consecrated Host. God gives Himself to us! We become one in Him when we receive Him in the Eucharist. He gives us His Body.
- Jesus: Do you see these mysteries, how glorious they truly are that I died and rose on the third day and then ascended into heaven?
- Jesus: I am Jesus Christ, the Son of God, come to this earth in such great love to save souls, to lead souls to heaven to be with Me forever and ever. How many souls will be lost because of their willfulness and their ways? Pray, My children, for the souls that are in darkness. They hold on to their foolish ways. They turn their backs and go their own way.
- R. He went to heaven to prepare a place for us. Heaven is our true home!
- R. He ascended into heaven and the gates of heaven were opened!
- Jesus: I send you as missionaries into this world to spread the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.
- Jesus: You say: "For You, Lord, anything! For You, Lord, I will do anything!" And I call you to speak out in front of people and you say, "I can't do that, Lord!" I call you to pray to the Spirit for the courage to preach the Gospel for there are many who are suffering and in pain. Hear their words: "You helped me get to heaven"!
- R. See the souls as they ascend into Heaven behind Jesus. See the souls as they are released from purgatory because of our prayers. See the great mercy of God that He loves souls. God the Father loves us so much that He sent His Son into this world so that we might be in heaven some day.
- Jesus: See the souls of those living this day, and see them, as they die, being condemned to eternal damnation for their willfulness. For sin is sin and I came to give you life!
Song between decades: Come, Holy Spirit, fill our hearts…
The Descent of the Holy Spirit on the Apostles
- R. Jesus promised before He left the earth that He would send the Holy Spirit to baptize the apostles. Please, dear Holy Spirit, descend upon us so that we have the courage to do all that You are asking us to do. We are fearful and weak and we need Your grace. We need You to live in us, to operate in us, to help us be more and more like Jesus.
- R. Who is our model? Whom do we model ourselves after?
- R. Mary was joined in the Upper Room with the apostles and a gigantic wind came and there appeared over their heads parted tongues of fire.
- R. They were filled with the Holy Spirit and transformed from fear to fearlessness. They went out to preach the Gospel and all understood!
- R. Holy Spirit, descend upon us! Outpour all of your gifts and please give to us the courage to be able to carry out the mission that the Father has intended for us.
- R. Where we are, as humans, weak and afraid, saturate us with the fire of God's love so that as we operate, we operate enlightened by You. We receive Your wisdom, Your understanding and Your knowledge to know exactly what the Father is calling us to do.
- R. Mary, our Mother, help us to unite ever closer to the Holy Spirit that He can work and be active in our being, that we might feel this saturation and penetration of the presence of the Almighty God within our souls.
- R. Holy Spirit, impart to us Your life so that we may be enlightened to do all that God is asking us to do. Fill us with such a brilliant light that we know the light of the Almighty God.
- Jesus: I am the Way, I am the Truth, I am the Life! He who abides in Me will have the light of life!
- R. May we be transformed more and more into the image of Jesus in the Heart of the Virgin Mary and led to the bosom of our Father.
Song between decades: Come, Holy Spirit, fill our hearts…
The Assumption of Mary Into Heaven
- Jesus: Model yourselves after Mary, My Mother. She was taken body and soul into heaven. You, too, some day will be taken into My kingdom.
- Jesus: You must come to our Hearts. Pray from the heart, My beloved ones. As Mary was so united to My Heart, pray to Mary to unite yourselves closer and closer to My Heart.
- Jesus: The more you live this rosary in your daily lives, the more you will pray from your heart. It is in understanding Our lives that you will be joined closer to Us.
- Jesus: Our Hearts are a great symbol of Our love for you.
- Jesus: How is your heart? Is your heart free of all debris to unite with My immense love? Purify your hearts and come ever closer to Me for a heart that is full of sin cannot unite with My Heart. My Heart is pure and filled with love. To unite closely with Me, your hearts must be forever pure.
- Jesus: How I want to unite with each one of you in deepest love, to unite more deeply with you. The love that I have is immeasurable and the longings of your hearts are the longings to unite ever closer to My Heart. You will be satisfied in heaven, My beloved ones, for your hearts will be filled with My love.
- R. Mary went to heaven and united closely with the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit in a most intense union.
- Jesus: Your hearts crave this love that only I can give. Search you this barren desert and you will never satisfy the cravings in your hearts.
- R. Mary mothers us as she mothered Jesus. Mary is the Mother of the Church. We pray to Mary to lead us to an ever deeper union with God.
- R. We pray to Mary to lead this Church into deeper union with Her Son, to help the priests and the religious who are our ministers in this Church, to lead the souls to deep and longing love with Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
Song between decades: Come, Holy Spirit, fill our hearts…
Mary Is Crowned Queen of Heaven and Earth
- R. Mary reigns with her Son in the courts of heaven! The Sacred Heart of Jesus will reign on this earth! The Immaculate Heart of Mary will triumph! There will be an era of peace, but many will suffer the loss of their souls for their own willfulness.
Jesus: You are a big part of the Father's plan to help souls to know of the love of God. I beg you to pray fervently from the heart and to lead others to the love of My Heart.
- R. How the Heart of Mary knows the Heart of Jesus. How she stands by our side and mothers with the most maternal love. How do we turn to Mary? Do we realize that she is here at every second waiting to take us to the Heart of her Son? She reigns in heaven with her Son Jesus. He loves His Mother so much. Ought we not put our faith and trust and love in His Mother so that she might lead us closer to His Sacred Heart?
- R. We are the children of God. God is our Father. Let us realize how we must live in connection with the Father, that our every action is to please Him and to do His Will, that Mary is our Mother and by our side with love to lead us to greatest union with God.
- Jesus: Do you want peace, joy and happiness, or do you want your own wills? Only in submitting to the Will of My Father will you have peace, joy and happiness.
- R. Mary is there to lead us to the Heart of her Son.
- R. The Heart of Jesus is waiting to be united with us in such deep love. Help us, Jesus, as little children being held by our loving mother, to realize the immense love that the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit outpour to us. Help us to realize how Mary is our Mother who guards us and protects us under her mantle, how she watches over us and leads us ever closer to the Heart of her Son.
- Jesus: The glory is in the resurrection! The glory is in the new life! I lead you into glory but you must submit your wills to the Will of the Father.
- Jesus: This intense union that I want with each one of you far surpasses anything you could find on this earth. Come to Me and sit with Me in front of My tabernacle. Be joined in oneness as I give you My very Body and Blood as your food to eat. I nourish you with My own Flesh and Blood. I become one with you and you become one with Me. As we are united, you become united to the Father, for I am one with the Father and He is one with Me. My beloved ones, the great gifts that I give to you and you are so blind!
- Jesus: Consecrate your lives to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary and pray fervently for your priests, for I live this day in the Church. Pray for the priests and the Church. I love you, My beloved ones, and I love My Church.
- Jesus: Feed the hungry! My love is enough! People do not realize the immensity of My love. They scratch only the surface and I have such deep love to give. If you focus always on My love, you will be fed. You will know struggles and trials, but in all of these struggles, you will be brought to deeper life with Me. As you experience thorns, I give to you a bed of roses. I am Jesus, My beloved ones, and I have spoken directly to you of those things that I hold in My Heart and wish to share with you. Open up your hearts and your souls and ponder the words that I have spoken here. I truly long to be closely united to you, My precious chosen ones. Pray, pray, pray! Men have turned their backs. They have walked away and in their willfulness, they have forgotten God. I come to bring you new life that you might have it to the full.
Song: I am the Bread of Life. He who comes to Me shall not hunger and who believes in Me shall not thirst. No one can come to Me unless the Father beckons. And I will raise you up. And I will raise you up. And I will raise you up on the last day.
Jesus: Pray for My beloved priests and for the Church, My dear ones. Pray for the courage to go out into this world and be a witness of the love of God that you have within your hearts. It is fear that stops you from spreading this message. You, too, will be joined with Me forever and ever in heaven. I ask you to go out into the world and tell all you meet of My great love for them.
Locution Received After
Recitation of the Seven Sorrows
Jesus: I stand at the door of the hearts of mankind and knock. Many close their hearts and walk away. My beloved ones, pray for the souls of your brothers that they will open their hearts and let Me enter. Your prayers are so important for the salvation of many souls. Pray, My beloved ones! Pray as you have never prayed before. Unite ever more closely to My Most Sacred Heart. Pray always in union with Me and My Mother, the angels and saints, and the souls in purgatory. Pray to the Father, in union with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, in the Spirit. Your prayers are so valuable to many souls. Do not underestimate the power of prayer. I call out to you this day to go as soldiers into this world.

Dear Friends of the Building of the Two Hearts in Clearwater, Florida
I give my heart to Jesus and Mary with you in love.
We want to notify you of the terrible, abominable thing someone did to the face of Mary.
Here is a picture for you:
Last night as I stayed beneath the image, the whole front area was covered with a golden light.
I knew God was with me in this place.
I was covered in golden light.
It was awesome.
The face of Jesus could be seen so clearly in the image windows.
Here is a picture Joe Lee took of Jesus' face at 10:30 p.m.
March 29, 2004 at 10:30 p.m.
Mary's Image appeared 7 years on the building here.
The purpose of the Marian groups were to lead people to Jesus through Mary. Jesus told Father Carter this. Jesus told Father Carter that the Shepherds of Christ was His Movement to help in the renewal of the Church and the world.
The Shepherds of Christ Movement, Jesus told Father Carter, was His Movement to lead people into deep intimacy with Him.
After so many Marian apparitions in the 20th century, Jesus told Father Carter this was His Movement, Shepherds of Christ, to lead to this deep bridal union He wants with His precious souls.
God gave us great gifts in allowing Mary to appear on the building for over 7 years.
Jesus' face remains with us and He has promised great graces to those who come and pray here. Special healing graces will be granted.
Jesus wants prayer chapters begun in Southern Florida.
If you live in Southern Florida, please pray these prayers with us.
Please continue to come to this site to help make reparation to God for the abominable deed done to the Virgin Mary.

Jesus speaks: "I am calling many to become members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. To all of them I will give great blessings. I will use them as instruments to help bring about the triumph of the Immaculate Heart and the reign of My Sacred Heart. I will give great graces to the members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. I will call them to be deeply united to My Heart and to Mary's Heart as I lead them ever closer to My Father in the Holy Spirit."

The Birth of the Full Ministries
of the Shepherds of Christ
"I wish to share with you part of a message which Jesus gave us on October 13, 1994. The message tells us about the expansion of the Shepherds of Christ movement:
'My beloved priest-companion, today I come to you with another mission. I am asking you to establish Shepherds of Christ Ministries. At My request you have already begun the priestly newsletter, "Shepherds of Christ", and the prayer chapters, Shepherds of Christ Associates...
'I am giving you this message on this day, the 77th Anniversary of the Great Apparition at Fatima, because of the close connection between the Shepherds of Christ movement and the Fatima message. The Fatima message is centered in devotion to My Heart and My Mother's Heart, especially in consecration to Our Hearts. Shepherds of Christ Ministries is also centered in devotion to Our Hearts. I will use Shepherds of Christ Ministries as a great instrument in helping to bring about the triumph of the Immaculate Heart and the reign of My Sacred Heart. When this occurs, My Church and the world will be experiencing the great era of peace promised by My Mother at Fatima.
'Today, then, October 13, 1994, the 77th Anniversary of the Great Apparition at Fatima, marks the birth of Shepherds of Christ Ministries. I pour forth the great love of My Sacred Heart to all. I am Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the flock.'
- From In the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, Newsletter of Shepherds of Christ Associates

Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart
My dear fellow Associate Members,
Jesus is calling special apostles to join a new division of the Shepherds of Christ Movement. Here is a message from Jesus given to Father Carter:
My beloved priest-companion, I am requesting that a new prayer movement be started under the direction of Shepherds of Christ Ministries. I am asking for volunteers who are willing to pray before the Blessed Sacrament for one hour, twice-weekly. Members of the Shepherds of Christ prayer chapters, as well as others, are to be invited to join this movement.
These apostles are to pray for the intentions I am giving you. For part of the hour they are to use the prayers of the Shepherds of Christ Associates Handbook. They may spend the rest of the hour as they so choose.
I will use this new prayer movement within My Shepherds of Christ Ministries in a powerful way to help in the renewal of My Church and the world. I will give great graces to those who join this movement. The name, Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus, is to be given to this movement.
I am inviting My beloved Rita Ring to be coordinator for this activity.
I pour out the great love of My Sacred Heart to all. I am Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the flock.
This is indeed a special calling for us to unite in one heart with His Eucharistic Heart and pray for the following intentions:
- 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.
- For the Pope.
- For all bishops of the world.
- For all priests.
- For all sisters and brothers in the religious life.
- For all members of the Shepherds of Christ Movement, and for the spread of this movement to the world.
- For all members of the Catholic Church.
- For all members of the human family.
- For all souls in purgatory.
