Messenger:     My dear Jesus,

                             I offer everything I do to You. I want to write
                    to You because I love You so much. You give us
                    the beautiful blue sky, the clouds and so many
                    things we just take for granted.

                        I want to share all my thoughts and feelings with
                    You for You understand me more than
                    anyone else.

                        I love to go to the Eucharist. I find such joy in
                    the gift You have given in our priests and the
                    Church. I love to receive You, I feel Your presence
                    so strong when I receive You in Holy Communion,
                    I long for You and to have You inside of me
                    when You come to me in the Eucharist.

                    Jesus I love so much to be with You in church.
                    I feel Your presence when You are in the
                    tabernacle or exposed in the consecrated


April 24, 2001 message continues

Jesus speaks: My child, I long to come to you and be with you in
                            a very intimate way when you receive Me
                            in the Eucharist. I know you would like to
                            spend so much time with Me before the
                            tabernacle and yet some days you spend
                            just that hour in prayer. 

Messenger:    (This is in addition to all the prayers I pray during the day. I 
                            pray hourly, standing in a line, riding in the car, 
                            attending Mass, doing the 6:20 prayers, etc.) 

Jesus speaks: I want you to continue writing to Me. Sharing your 
                            feelings with Me, spending the time every day 
                            pleases Me so much. I pick My letters of love for 
                            you every day. I give you exactly as you need.

                        In the troubles you have experienced you have been
                    drawn ever closer to Me. I allow you to suffer these
                    hardships and losses, many times, to draw you closer
                    to Me.

                        I want a very intimate deep union with you. You are
                    My beloved spouse. I am the Bridegroom of your soul.

                        I want you to tell the world of the precious gift I
                    give them in the priest. Your priest must know what
                    a tremendous gift I have given to them in their
                    priesthood, but they are always under Me. They are
                    My instrument whereby I bring the Eucharist to
                    My beloved souls. They need to be so likened to Me.
                    They need to love more, to love the souls and to share
                    the deepest intimate love union with Me.

                    I will lead the priest into a deeper love union with
                        Me the more he prays the prayers I gave to Father
                        Carter. This is a promise I give to you. That for all
                        who pray these prayers I will take them deeper
                        and deeper into My Heart and the Heart of My Mother.
                        I promise the greatest graces for those who devoutly
                        pray My prayers. I want all to pray them for the
                        priest, the Church and the world. I want My
                        religious to realize how much I love them and have
                        chosen them. I want My religious to spread the news
                        to all about the gifts given in the Eucharist. Tell the
                        people I am truly present there. Tell the people of
                        the great gift God gives to you in the priest. Tell
                        them they must pray for them.

Messenger:   Note: Jesus said His handmaids and servants 
                            are His special spouse and please Him so much.
                            He also said:

Jesus speaks:  Anyone that answers the call to be a handmaid or
                            servant I have given the greatest graces to
                            live this vocation.

                             I am such a good God and you do not treasure
                   the gift I give you when I give you so much —
                   when I give you Myself in the Eucharist.

                        I am from above, you are from below, you get
                    so focused on your shoestrings, many of you
                    miss the warm sunny day. And when I allow you
                    to suffer it is a gift. I suffered for you.
                    I allow you to suffer many times to draw you
                    closer and closer to Me.

Excerpt from God's Blue Book I

Picture of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

December 30, 1993

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

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

April 24, 2001 message continues

Jesus speaks:     I want you to realize how dependent you are on
                    Me. I love that. I love you to worship and adore
                    Me, to be a good creature, then I lift you up
                    and kiss your little cheeks and send you on
                    your little way.

                        I am a God of love. I am love.
                    I want oneness and love rooted in Me.

April 24, 2001 - Second Message

Jesus speaks:  The devil works in jealousy and pride. He works
                        to get you to think you are better than someone

                    You must work toward oneness.

                    You must work in love.

Messenger:     The Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart is an

Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus
My dear fellow Associate Members,

There is a new prayer movement which has been started under the direction of Shepherds of Christ Ministries. We are 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 given. 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.

This new prayer movement within the Shepherds of Christ Ministries is a powerful way to help in the renewal of the Church and the world. The name, Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus, has been given to this movement.

Rita Ring is the coordinator for this activity.

This is indeed a special calling for us to unite in one heart with His Eucharistic Heart and pray for the following intentions:

  1. For the spread of the devotion to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary culminating in the reign of the Sacred Heart and the triumph of the Immaculate Heart.
  2. For the Pope.
  3. For all bishops of the world.
  4. For all priests.
  5. For all sisters and brothers in the religious life.
  6. For all members of the Shepherds of Christ Movement, and for the spread of this movement to the world.
  7. For all members of the Catholic Church.
  8. For all members of the human family.
  9. For all souls in purgatory.

Jesus wants so much for us to come and be with Him. He is no less present in the tabernacle than the day He walked the earth. He will listen to our heartfelt prayers as Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus. His Heart beats in deepest love for us. How He loves His beloved priests and religious. He wants us to come to the Blessed Sacrament and pray to Him for them. Our prayers are especially powerful when we are before the tabernacle.

If you feel Jesus is calling you to be an apostle of His Eucharistic Heart, please sign on the following form. Please send the form to Shepherds of Christ Ministries, Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus, P.O. Box 193, Morrow, OH 45152-0193.

Please circulate this letter and the sign-up forms. This is a call to priests, sisters, laity, including children. The Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus do not have to be a member of the Shepherds of Christ chapters.

There is such power in His Eucharistic Heart. Let us join one another and answer His call today. Adoration should begin as soon as possible.

Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus will receive a newsletter. It is very important to send in the membership as soon as possible so we can send you the newsletter and any information about the Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus.

As apostles, we will receive abundant graces from God and help bring about the renewal of the Church and the world.

May you know the burning love of His Heart.

Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus


Welcome to the inaugural issue of Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus! Each article is meant to pique the reader's awareness, light upon flashing light, of the great gift Jesus gave us, and continues to give us every day, in the Blessed Sacrament of the altar.  May they put you at east and may they help you to grow in your love and appreciation of Him Who loves us so much. Praise God!

Bread of Life
(John 6:32-35)1 Jesus answered them:

"In all truth I tell you, it was not Moses who gave you the bread from heaven, it was my Father who gives you the bread from heaven, the true bread; for the bread of God is the bread which comes down from heaven and gives life to the world."

"Sir," they said, "give us this bread always." Jesus answered them:

"I am the bread of life. No one who comes to me will ever hunger; no one who believes in me will ever thirst."

The New Manna
(John 6: 48-58)1 "I am the bread of life. Your fathers ate manna in the desert, and they are dead; but this is the bread which comes down from heaven, so that a person may eat it and not die. I am the living bread which has come down from heaven. Anyone who eats this bread will live for ever; and the bread that I shall give is my flesh, for the life of the world."

Then the Jews started arguing among themselves, "How can this man give us his flesh to eat?" Jesus replied to them:

"In all truth I tell you, if you do not eat the flesh of the Son of man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. Anyone who does eat my flesh and drink my blood has eternal life, and I shall raise that person up on the last day. For my flesh is real food and my blood is real drink. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood lives in me and I live in that person. As the living Father sent me and I draw life from the Father, so whoever eats me will also draw life from me. This is the bread which has come down from heaven; it is not like the bread our ancestors ate: they are dead, but anyone who eats this bread will live for ever."

Many Graces Will Be Granted
My beloved Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus, I have called you to a special apostleship, My beloved ones. I am crying out to you from My Eucharistic Heart to pray as you have never prayed before. The power, My dear chosen ones, is in the Eucharist. Your world is in a very serious state. The Church, the pope, the bishops, the priests, the Sisters and Brothers are all in need of tremendous prayer power.

You have been called to the quiet of the tabernacle to take your prayer petitions to My Eucharistic Heart. The renewal of the Church and the world is at hand. From the prayers you pray here, many graces will be granted.

I am calling all in this Movement as well as all others in the Shepherds of Christ Movement to consecrate their hearts to My Heart and the heart of My Mother. All through the day I am calling you, priests, sisters and brothers in the religious life, laity, including children, to give your hearts to Me and to My beloved Mother. As you dwell in Our Hearts you will be one with each other.

Come to Me with your petitions. I am truly present in the tabernacle, no less present than the day I walked the earth. I wait for you to come and to pray for your Church and your world. Many graces will be given there for the priesthood and those in the religious life. I have chosen each priest and sister and brother in the religious life to help spread My love to this world. The highest calling is to be called to the priesthood. The calling I give to My beloved priests, sisters and brothers is a special spousalship to Me. How My Heart is wounded by the priests and sisters and brothers in the religious life who have turned worldly. I, the almighty God, call them to such a deep intimate love affair with Me and they go to the world for their love.

When the religious are fixed in My Heart many will be fed by My burning love.

The world is in a state of urgency. The Church in part has become worldly. The medicine for the hurting world is My burning love. Nothing, nothing will feed the starved soul but the love of God. I am calling you to pray for My holy priests, to pray that all priests come to a state of deep holiness.

I have called you as part of the Shepherds of Christ Movement to join in prayer before Me and to beg for graces for your Church and your world.

The renewal of My Church and My world will be helped greatly through many giving themselves to this movement.

At Fatima My Mother said that, until a sufficient number of faithful are consecrating their hearts to My Heart and the heart of My Mother, there will not be peace in this world.

In the Shepherds of Christ Movement including the Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus Movement, I am reaching the priests, sisters and brothers in the religious life, laity, including the children - with this Consecration.

As you dwell in Our hearts you are one with us. As you give yourselves to our Hearts, you are one in our Hearts. These movements will prosper for all are joined in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. You will proceed ahead in one heart and one mind. You will be more joined as a true family, brothers and sisters, living according to the will of your heavenly Father and dwelling in the heart of your heavenly Mother.

Oh, beloved children, in these movements you have been hand-picked and chosen for this mission by Me. I am giving to you such graces to unite more and more deeply to My Heart. You will be one with each other and one with God. As you dwell in My Mother's heart and My Heart, you unite with the Father in the Holy Spirit.

You are especially chosen, my apostles, to help carry My love to this world. As you join in this oneness with Me, I live in you and you in Me and I am alive in this world in a special way through this union.

I have called you to this apostleship, I am guarding your every breath, I am giving you abundant graces to help carry out the plan of the Father. "Come to me, all you who labour and are overburdened, and I will give you rest." (Matt. 11:28)1

Bring the cares of the Church and the world to Me. I am waiting to give you all you need. I am Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God. I live this day in the world. I am truly present in the Blessed Sacrament. Come to Me and I will live in you.

I love you, I love you, I love you. I am your beloved Savior, Jesus.

- Message from Jesus to Rita Ring, March 8, 1996

We Are Children of God
(Rom 8: 14-17)
1 All who are guided by the Spirit of God are sons of God; for what you received was not the spirit of slavery to bring you back into fear; you received the spirit of adoption, enabling us to cry out, "Abba, Father!" The Spirit himself joins with our spirit to bear witness that we are children of God. And if we are children, then we are heirs, heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, provided that we share his suffering, so as to share his glory.

He Remains with Us, Truly Present
God sees us as one family, His beloved creatures. He loves us each with the deepest personal love. He sees us united. It is our love for one another that pleases Him. There is not division in God. He loves each of us and knows our uniqueness. He loves all of us as His creatures. We are all members of His holy family. He wants all His children to inherit the Kingdom of God.

I find refuge by dwelling within His most precious Heart. I feel the inner glow, the heat. I feel the calm beating of His heart. It is there I am wrapped in His burning love. It is there I am united deeply to my most beloved Father. It is there I am joined with the permeating, moving action of the Holy Spirit.

It is my refuge, in this dark and troubled world. It is my heaven on earth, to be joined in love with all He has created, to have perfect peace and know God's chamber of peace and love.

I see the darkness, the vileness of this world, and I go to His Heart. I see, with rose-colored glasses. I see as He wants us to see with eyes of love. I want to love and see as He sees. It is in this deepest chamber of His Heart that I have found the Kingdom of God on earth, for He has said, the Kingdom of God is within you. The Kingdom of God, our little heaven on earth, is in dwelling deeply within Their Hearts. In His Heart is love and in His Heart is peace, in His Heart we are all one as He intends us to be. "But to the man who told him this Jesus replied, 'Who is my mother? Who are my brothers?' And stretching out his hand towards his disciples he said, 'Here are my mother and my brothers. Anyone who does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother." (Matt: 12:48-50)1 We draw in our beloved sisters and brothers by the love that radiates from our eyes, our gentle touch, our loving concern.

Strip yourself of the attachments to this world. Find peace in the freedom of living according to His will, living *In Him, *in this magnificent Heart.

He came, He walked the earth, for love of us. He took on a human body. He gave His adorable Heart that we could live *In Him. He no longer walks this earth, He gives us Himself in the Holy Eucharist. He gives us a human *heart, pierced with a lance, crowned with thorns and holding the cross. The way to this fiery furnace, the way to life in Him, is through much suffering and pain. We identify with Him in all our actions, all our joys and sufferings, united to Him as we live our lives in Him. We walk the Passion, we feel the joys, the deep love in His Heart for His Mother, for all His beloved creatures. We carry out His life in our life.

I am Yours, my Lord. I love You with my whole heart, my whole soul, my whole being. I have found the Kingdom of God on this earth. I have found life in You. When I see the darkness in this troubled world, I go to the deepest, hottest chamber of Your Heart and I am bathed in your abundant love. I take with me my troubled brothers in my heart and I plead for their return to their God who is all worthy of all honor and love and adoration.

I am Yours, Lord, I consecrate my heart to You to live forever in this holy place. I want to die to all that is not of You, that I can be united in the deepest way to You, that my heart will know Your love, that as I live in this world I can truly say, "It is no longer I who live, but He who lives in me."

O, Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, I give You my all. I come to You surrounded by the pure and loving heart of Your Mother. I know You won't refuse me in my wretchedness when I come to You in the heart of Your beloved Mother.

The Holy Spirit permeates the very depth of my soul and I enter into the deepest chamber of His fiery Heart. It is there I feel so little, as a little child, and I unite to my most beloved Father. I feel in Your fiery heart the presence of God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, in the deepest, whitest chamber, in the center of the deepest love. I unite with God and I know my dwelling in You is truly a little heaven on earth.

The Kingdom of God is at hand. There will be an era of peace. We will all be one in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. We will be one happy family where there will only be love: love of God and love of one another.

And the city shone with the brightest light for within their hearts they knew the love of God and it radiated into the world. There was no longer darkness that covered the earth, but light, radiating from those dwelling within the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. And the star shone over His bed at Bethlehem. He is truly the light of the world and the light shone in the darkness and all who came to this light lived in the light and lived according to the light.

It is in this that we trust, that in all the darkness of the world that the light will shine when men are dwelling in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

And, He says: I am the way, the truth and the life. He who abides in me will have the light of life. He came, He was born a baby, He died on a cross, but as He hung on that cross on Calvary, He was the light that shone as the brightest light to the world, withered, beaten and bloodied. He was the brightest light in the darkened sky. It was through His death all men were promised a chance for real life, for eternal salvation.

And the light came forth from the tomb in power and glory, adorned in bright, glistening light. He stood before them with His glorified wounds: His pierced Heart of endless love and He gave them the newness of life-life in Him. The light shone in the darkness. He gave them a sharing in His Divine Life through Baptism and ascended into heaven to prepare a place for us, but He remained with us, truly present, in His Eucharistic Heart. He feeds us with His own Body and Blood. He gives us the Bread of Life. He is the Savior of the World and we live in newness of life because God first loved us!

- Rita Ring, February 23, 1996

Hearts One with Jesus and Mary
I feel His love in the hearts of holy priests. He has anointed them and they represent Christ to me. My soul is fed by all His holy priests. I feel fed when a priest loves Jesus so much. I must see the hearts of all and join with them in one heart, love them deeply in my heart.

There will be an era of peace when hearts are one with the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

Jesus and Mary, I give You my heart.

Per Fr. Carter's Message2
This is your special calling from Jesus to pray for the Church and the world. The power is in Him. He is truly present in the Eucharist. He ascended into heaven, but He remains with us in greatest love. He calls out to us, "I am alive, I am alive, I am alive. Come to me and I will give you rest. Can you not watch one hour with Me?

"I am Jesus. I call you My beloved ones to be Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus. I love you, I love you, I love you."

Sorrowful MotherMary's Message from the Rosary of August 27, 1996

Mary speaks: I stood beneath the cross of my Son, and my Heart was in such pain for I saw Him before my eyes. I saw Him covered with blood. I saw Him die. My Heart, my children, my Heart to watch my Son, but my Heart, my Heart, how I suffered for my little children of the world that give in to this world and give up the love of my Son. O my little children of light, I give you this message. Carry this light into the darkness for your Mother Mary, for I stood beneath the cross and I cried. I cried for the little ones. I cried for the young ones, the ones that do not care and will lose their souls. How do I make you see for you will not listen to me? What can I do? I come. I appear. I beg. I plead. I give you these gifts from my Son, and you reject me. I do not deliver messages very often anymore for I have been ignored. The message is the same. You do not read the messages I have given to you. Please help me. Help the little children. I appear. I appear. I appear, and I am ignored. I stood beneath the cross, and I cried. I cried, and my Heart was in such anguish for my little children, for I am searching for them this day as I searched for the Child Jesus. Please, please help me. I cannot hold back the hand of my Son any longer. I am Mary, your Mother. I ask you to help my children. You are my children of light.

Song: O Lady of Light, shining so bright, be with us this day, guiding our way, O Lady, O Lady of Light.

Mary speaks: I appear to you as Our Mother of Sorrows.

(End of Mary's Message)

A Note from the President of Shepherds of Christ:

If you are devoted to Our Lady's rosary, we need your help! A member of our ministry is very devoted to Our Blessed Mother and he is helping to teach us how to grow our volunteer rosary makers. He estimates that we will need approximately $37,000 this year for beads alone! This translates into 22,339,500 rosary beads (yes, 22 million beads) assembled by volunteers into 378 thousand rosaries. The biggest users of our rosaries are the Catholic schools, who requested more than 100,000 rosaries last year.

Can you help us? I appeal to you for funds, whether large or small. We give because we love God, we love our Blessed Mother, and we love souls. We will accept gifts in many forms, besides cash or check donations, we can receive gifts directly in the form of stocks or property. These gifts can offer large tax advantages to the donor and increase the monetary value of the gift to us. Also if you can help assemble rosaries we need your help! If you can help us in anyway, please call or write us. God Bless!

I love you,
John Weickert


A rosary can be used to pray for healing. It is powerful to unite our prayers to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and pray through the powerful intercession of Our Lady of Clearwater.

In times of trouble, for special prayer, we can use our rosary and pray as follows.

A Rosary for Healing or for Someone with Cancer.

On one Hail Mary bead or as many as you desire, say: 

May God heal                     through the intercession of Our Lady of Clearwater in union with the Mass and all the Masses being celebrated around the world.

Pray the Hail Mary or Hail Mary's then pray this after the Hail Mary.

May the cancer be uprooted and thrown into the sea.

We believe with all our hearts.

After the Glory Be — pray the following petition.

May                     be healed through the intercession of Our Lady of Clearwater if it be the holy will of God.

Note: You can look at Mary on the image rosary while you pray this rosary.

Note: The above section can be printed out from a PDF file, and you can pray the rosary looking at the pictures.
