Messenger:             We take so many of God's gifts for 

                                Oh Jesus I love You so deeply, I am
                            always connected to You and I
                            always see this vision of myself
                            with You forever in heaven. 

                                I live for this. I want You, I
                            want completeness with You in
                            heaven. I want You God, I love
                            You so much.

                                I am in awe of the miracle
                            that takes place at the Mass.
                            I cry so deeply to be there.

                                I couldn't go to Church this week
                            because of the wreck.
                                Tonight I got to walk up the aisle
                            to go to communion. I felt as the
                            bride going to meet her bridegroom
                            My love so deep for Him.

                                My thoughts were — Oh what if 
                            I was crippled and could not walk
                            the isle to receive Jesus.
                                All through the Mass my thoughts,
                            my desire is to receive Him.

                                I went to my brother for Holy Communion
                            he is a very holy priest and I am
                            so grateful to God for this.

                                I then received the Precious Blood
                            crying. I knew so deeply in
                            my soul it was the Blood of
                            Jesus, my beloved. He shed
                            His Blood for me.

                                I saw the Blood in the cup. I
                            just can't explain what it is to
                            me to receive Jesus inside of

                                Words do not express my

                            experience so deep in my heart.

                             I love God so much. I love the
                            Eucharist. Think of what a gift it
                            is to walk down the isle and receive

                                I love Jesus so much, I live to

                            be possessed by God for all eternity.

                            My heart is joyful to know God

                            and the gifts He has in store for

                            those who love and serve the Lord.

                                I love the Church so much,

                            I love the sacraments so much

                                        and especially the Eucharist —




April 20, 2003 message continues

Messenger:        I love receiving Jesus, going

                            up the isle in Church and receiving

                            the Precious Body and Blood.

                            Oh God is so good to us. God loves

                            us so much to remain with us in

                            the Holy Eucharist and give us

                            Himself in Holy Communion.



April 20, 2003 message continues

Messenger:        Tell your little ones receiving

                            Holy Eucharist what a gift it is

                            and how very much Jesus loves

                            the little ones to receive Him.

                                Little girls dressed like little

                            brides to receive Jesus in the

                            Eucharist. The handmaids wear

                            white, always a special remembrance

                            of their very special spousal union

                            with Jesus.

                                Oh Jesus I love you so much.

                            I love the souls of the earth.

                                Happy Easter

                                Jesus has risen Alleluia

Alleluia, Alleluia

Received April 19, 2003 - Holy Saturday Night

(my mom's birthday)

Messenger:        Happy Birthday Mom Alice Philomena in heaven. 

Jesus speaks:    My beloved ones,

                                I am with you in all that you do.

                            Some things are not as you expect.

Messenger:        Oh my Jesus,

                                I love Holy Saturday and Easter Sunday,
                                I am so grateful for these liturgies,

                                I pray for grace to be released
                                    all over the earth.


Genesis 1: 3

God said, ‘Let there be light,’ and there was light.



Messenger:        Moses led them through the sea. 

                            Oh God, You are all Powerful —

                            Oh God, You gave us the light

                            Oh God, I love You so much.

                            Oh God — they went on dry land.

                            Oh God help us do what You
                                ask us to do.

                            Oh God, you are all Powerful —

                           Oh God, I am not afraid

                            Oh God, I worship You.

                            Oh God, Oh God, I love You
                                I rely on Your Might!

                            God is constantly showing us how

                                He helps us.

                            I could have been killed in the

                                accident — God spared my
                                life and Emily and Dusty and 

                            Jesus told me to keep Joe L. home in
                                Cincinnati and let him attend to the
                                mailing and not to have
                                anyone following us home.

                            The message Mary gave on January 5, 2003
                                is so beautiful.

Jesus speaks:    Oh My child, why do you fear, do you

                                not know the very hairs of your

                                head are numbered.

Messenger:        God gave us our bodies and our heart
                                and every little cell.

                            Did you ever see the beautiful toes and fingers
                                of a new born baby.



Messenger:        So very small and then the baby
                                grows up and walks and talks and
                                knows so much in such
                                a short time.




Messenger:        God gives us the air to breathe,
                                the water to drink and food
                                to eat.

                            Jesus feeds us with Himself
                                in the Eucharist, God
                                gives us His Holy Word.

                            Oh my God, I love Thee so very much.

                            Oh God you are merciful —

                            Oh God you are forgiving —

                            Oh God you are Divine —

                            Oh God I am a human creature
                                and you are the Divine God.

                            Oh God you give us the rainbow

                                a sign of Your covenant

                                with us.

                            Oh God you promised this:


Genesis 9: 11-17

And I shall maintain my covenant with you: that never again shall all living things be destroyed by the waters of a flood, nor shall there ever again be a flood to devastate the earth.’ 

    ‘And this’, God said, ‘is the sign of the covenant which I now make between myself and you and every living creature with you for all ages to come: I now set my bow in the clouds and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth. When I gather the clouds over the earth and the bow appears in the clouds, I shall recall the covenant between myself and you and every living creature, in a word all living things, and never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all living things. When the bow is in the clouds I shall see it and call to mind the eternal covenant between God and every living creature on earth, that is, all living things.’ ‘That’, God told Noah, ‘is the sign of the covenant I have established between myself and all living things on earth.’

April 19, 2003 message continues

Jesus speaks:     I cry out to you in God's Blue Book. 


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.


April 19, 2003 message continues

Jesus speaks:     I am the Way, the truth and the life —

                                I am God.

                                I am Jesus, the Son of God.

God the Father speaks:

                            I am God the Father, I sent My Son

                                Jesus into this world. He is your

                                Savior. You are creatures, some

                                so arrogant and disobedient.

                            My Shepherds of Christ  I

                                give this direction to you that

                                you will know these prayers



God the Father speaks:

                                come from Me.

                            I am God the Father.

                            I love you so very much.

                            I gave My Son —

                            My Son Jesus came to this earth

                                to pay the price for your sins and

                            today so many ignore Him and

                            are so willful.

                            Here is the message I gave


January 5, 1999

God the Father speaks:  It is because of your fervor to pray here that you have held back the hand of My Son from punishing the earth with just punishment for the crimes committed against your God.

Jesus speaks:     Oh My people you have ignored

                                My Mother. Children who are

                                shown our images and people

                                would change if she was

                                recognized, but you ignore

                                her and people are obeying the 

                                authority of the Church as

                                they should.

                            When Juan Diego showed the Bishop

                                the sign the Bishop believed.

                            You ignore this sign from heaven.

                            You ignore the prayer chapters I 

                                wish were begun for the

                                priests, the Church and the world.

                            I have given you these love letters from

                                My Heart, a math teacher - mother

                                would not have this wisdom.

                            Analyze the theological content

                                of one Blue Book message

                                Fr Carter discerned and recognized

                                as his own. He firmly stood behind

                                these messages.

                            Oh My people, people blaspheme Me

                                everyday, My hand could come 

                                down on this earth and yet

                                I send this sign and all these

                                writings and you ignore Me.

                            My souls are being lost.

                            Little ones seeing the Virgin Mary

                                on the building would be moved,

                                rosary books, Mass books are


                            The messages of God's Blue Book come

                                from My Heart on fire for love of

                                men and I am ignored.

                            Oh My people—you are so cold —

                                consumed with love for you

                                I gave My all to My death on

                                the cross, I shed the last

                                drop of My Blood—My hands

                                and feet were pierced.

                            Look how the Mass is treated.

                            My people the Mass is the answer —

                                the body must be united —

                            I want you to pray as a body

                                united to the Mass for grace

                                to be outpoured all day on

                                the souls of the earth.

                            I want you to pray for My Church

                                and for the priests and for 

                                the world.

                            You do not understand how you are

                                to be united to all the Masses

                                going on around the world, in

                                        a deep way, all day.


Messenger:        In my soul I am united to the Holy

                            Sacrifice of the Mass in such

                            a deep way, all day, praying

                            for grace for the priests, the

                            Church and the world.

Jesus speaks:     The saints in heaven know how

                              you must change My people of

                              the earth. When Your Father

                              sends My Mother as a messenger

                              you ignore her.

                              old seminary, daily —

                          How foolish you are to not recognize

                              My hand in this—all of a

                              sudden a messenger writes

                              clear concise messages for

                              ten years almost every day —

                              and the message of My Mother?

                              to My Heart and Mary's Heart.

Novena to the Infant of Prague
(to be prayed hourly if possible)

          O Jesus, who said, "Ask and you shall receive, seek and you shall find, knock and it shall be opened to you," through the intercession of Mary, Your most holy Mother, I knock, I seek, I ask that my prayer be granted. 

          O Jesus, who said, "All that you ask of the Father in My Name He will grant you," through the intercession of Mary, Your most holy Mother, I humbly and urgently ask Your Father in Your Name that my prayer be granted.

Messenger:           Oh God outpour your light on

                                or how your children could have

                            Your world needs to consecrate their

                                hearts to My Sacred Heart and Mary's

                                Immaculate Heart.

                            I will be the King and Center of their

                                hearts—Mary appears to help

                                her children because

                                she knows many will be lost.

                            Do you realize that I have attached

                                special grace to every picture

                                of our images for the souls who

                                May, the rosary was led by a Catholic

                                priest who has prayed the rosary

                                for 20 years on the radio.

                            Many have not answered My call.

                            Think of all the souls that have

                                been affected because you

                                blocked My gifts given here —

                            Souls that may have been changed

                                prayer manuals, rosary videos,

                                Mass books, Nursing home

                                videos and

                                    pictures of Mary's image.

                                 Souls are dropping into hell

                           like rain. That is why

                           Mary appears in

                           Clearwater, Florida.

                        I cry tears of Blood.

                        I am ignored.

                        What sign would you listen to?

                        Your world is crumbling and

                            you don't see it —

                            satan's grip on the souls

                            is stronger every day —

                        satan has a grip on children,

                            adults, some priests —

                            I beg you to pray as I

                            have directed.

                        A good part of the world

                            does not believe

                            I am the Son of God.

                        They are teaching your children


                        Some schools want to be open to

                            others and undo what good

                            Catholic parents have taught.

                        Many Children are not being taught

                            to love the persons of

We pray all prayers for the priests and the renewal of the Church and the world and for the Shepherds of Christ intentions. By the precious Body and Blood of Jesus we cast out Satan far from this place, our families, the Shepherds of Christ Movement, Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center, the Church and the world. We ask the Blood of Jesus be spread on us, the Shepherds of Christ Movement, Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center, the Church and the world.
