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.

April 9, 2004

Jesus speaks:    My sufferings were so great. The sufferings I suffered were more to My Heart than My body.

Good Friday

Jesus speaks:    My people I tell you that the blows I received were nothing compared to the awful suffering I experienced for the souls who would reject Me.
I love each soul so perfectly.
I am God.
The anguish I experienced to My Heart was so great.
My people, they whipped Me, but the pain of My Heart was so great.
I was buckled over in pain for the ones I loved who lied about the truth and hurt others.
The sins today of the body and how people lie to each other and tell themselves they do no wrong.
All will be brought to light.
They whipped Me, but I cannot ever make you understand how great was the sufferings I experienced to My Heart the Heart of pure love.
I endured it all for you My beloved ones.
I withstood all the pain to My most precious Heart.
Some people are so prideful they do not even recognize the gifts I give to them.
They see themselves as so high up.
They step on others.
They lie.

My beloved ones I give you Myself in the Eucharist.
I watch the people parade around so arrogant so "high horsed" stepping on others.
Some do not ever think of the life here after.
Some lie to themselves.
I can tell you of the thorns that pierced My head.
I can tell you of the beatings to My back,
but My chosen ones I am God —
My Heart is an endless vat of love —
You will never comprehend the sufferings to My Heart for the hateful men in this world.
They think they can manipulate and hurt others and they will not be judged.
Oh, My chosen ones —
Your Mother warned —

So many souls are being lost because of their actions and their failure to repent.
I tell you "repent".

The retreat in China, Indiana on April 13th, 2004 is a healing retreat.
Think of your sins and come and tell Me you are sorry for your sins.
Pray for all who go there to get healing.
The retreat will be broadcast in Florida and on the web radio.
Oh My people — My suffering was the greatest to My Heart —
I saw before Me all those I loved.
I want you to love Me.
I want you to obey the Father.
I want you to be the way you should be and focus on your eternal life.
I want you to live to promote My Kingdom.


Oh My people, My thoughts were of you.
I gave My life for you.
Oh My people I loved you to My death on the cross.
Pray for yourself to receive grace to help you to see clearly your sins.

My dear people —
I allow you to suffer little crosses.
My dear people you know the rejection of some people you love.
Look at the world today and see the sins of the people.
My people I suffered for their sins.
I suffered for all the hatred for all the people for all times.
I suffered for all the sins of pride for all the people.
I suffered for all the sins of impurity of all the people.

My beloved ones — I have allowed you to suffer this day on Good Friday.

The sneeky ones can not hide their sins from me.
They can be so gready and I am so good to them.
Oh I do not want them to cause My beloved ones to suffer and yet they think only of themselves.

Messenger:    Oh my God help us.

Jesus speaks:

Oh, My chosen one come to My Heart and take refuge from the cold nights.
No one can comfort you like I can comfort you.
But to the greatest saints — I have allowed them to suffer tremendous sufferings
that brought them very close to Me.
They suffered much for the sins of the people. Oh little one do not lose heart.
Come to Me. I will never forsake you.
I will take you to My Sacred Heart and bathe you in the fire of My love.
Oh little loved one cry no more — thank your God for the gifts given to you.
Look for the golden lining in every cloud.
Do not be sad —
Be empowered.
Bathe in My love. Oh little one — I love you so much — come to Me.



April 9, 2004 - Good Friday

Jesus speaks:      I was rejected. I am God.
                         My people today are sinning.
                               They do not take notice of their God.

Messenger:         On the cross Jesus the Almighty God suffered and died for
                                our sins.
                            The reality is that men are making their places here below
                                their end.
                            I am torn in my heart by the neglect given to our God
                                and the disobedience to the ten commandments.

                            Christ our light. 

                            Do we seek the light in the thrills of this earth —
                                Is money wasted while man spends more and more
                                    to stimulate himself and give himself pleasure?

                                Do the silent cries of Jesus ring in the streets, but no one
                                    much listens, like happened with the cries of Mary
                                    when she appeared to me and
                                    the crushing of her face on the Image window.

                                Oh silent cries of Jesus and Mary




Excerpt from December 22, 1998

Messenger:    On January 9, 1996, I went to pray. The snow was so bad the street was blocked to Holy Cross-Immaculata. I finally managed to find a place to park and trudged through the snow, panting with joy to be with Our Lord in the tabernacle there. When I arrived all I could do was kneel before the Sacred Heart statue and pour out myself to Him.

Please show a picture of the tabernacle and the Sacred Heart statue.

From my writings of January 9, 1996, I write:

"I was engulfed again in my love of God and cried so hard because I love Him so much. In this intimate act of giving myself totally to Him, my whole act was in emptying myself, wanting only to be lost in Him and united forever to Him in this most blissful moment. I turned myself over and was lost in Him, knowing His presence with me and knowing His deep love. The world stopped and I existed in Him, longing to forever stay there, so this moment would never end."

"I touched you, God and in this embrace I knew your unending love. I saw Your Body as if it was transfigured and glowing in light and I was lost in Thee."

This is how it began. I would see a great reflective light, as if from a mirror, on the eaves of the church in the front of Holy Cross-Immaculata and His Body was changed in the most brilliant light before my eyes. I cannot describe what I saw, nor have I ever seen it except in this vision and two that would follow the next two days. Jesus was transfigured before my eyes.

The date of January 9, 1996, when it first happened, was the same date January 9, 1994, when I genuflected before the crucifix and the altar at St. Gertrude's and the Father spoke; Blue Book II-page 18, January 9, 1994: "This is My beloved Son in whom I am well pleased."

On January 9, 1996, I would see Jesus transfigured before me in the statue.

Excerpt from December 1, 1999 message about December 5, 1996

Messenger: After she appeared for almost 2½ years on the 5ths, on the 2½ year anniversary Christ appeared at the point of death, His mouth open and moving. His jaw kept moving.

I was horrified as I saw Him. I cried and could hardly stand it.

What was so awful was here was my Jesus at the point of death on the cross. He looked as if He could do nothing because of His condition and His mouth kept going up and down, and no words came out.

At the traditional rosary (I had done them now for 2½ years of 5ths) that evening at 6:30 with all the Shepherds of Christ people there, He said He moved His mouth because no one was listening.

This was December 5, 1996, after all those visits of Mary on the 5ths when very few came and listened.

end of excerpt from December 1, 1999


Jesus on the cross at Immaculata Church


Excerpt from Rosary on December 5, 1996:

Jesus speaks:  I am alive, I am alive. I am alive. My beloved ones, I show you My face. Do you see the body of a man? Do you see Me alive on the cross? I am speaking to you but the world does not hear. They do not hear the message that I deliver to them. You must pray fervently. You must come to Me that I can be one in you and that I can operate through you as you go into the world this day. I love you. I love you with the most tender love. I am Jesus. I am alive. You are My main soldiers that I will send into the world to lead the strayed ones to My Heart.

The days ahead will be dark days. You must come to My Heart and take shelter in My Heart. It is there that you will be rooted on a firm rock. For My Heart is your home. You will not know the terrors of the night if you stay rooted in My Heart.

Division is blackness in the heart. You must not be divided, divided from anyone. You must remain in union with all men. You must see yourselves as part of the Father's family. Each one of you is so important to the Father's plan.

Given April 8, 2004

Jesus speaks:      I speak of forgiveness.
                            Many today harbor hatred in their hearts —
                            I ask you to live to please Me.
                            Imperfections are passed down.
                            A man and woman may use different tactics
                                to be able to carry out their imperfections.

                            Some things are not rooted in love. A person must genuinely examine
                                their own conscience and pray for grace
                                to be more perfected.
                            I am God, I am Perfect.
                            Some people are so selfish.

                            Some people are so focused on building a kingdom
                                in which they believe others will support
                                them as the king.

                            They are not living to promote God's Kingdom 
                                and give real love.

                            They do things not to help others, but to "pat
                                themselves" on the back — to look better
                                than others that is their goal. Some focus only on their
                                life here. They have made their own fame their god or
                                they have made money their god. Their end can be
                                found in what gratification they can find here and
                                now. They want what they want for their own glory.

                                You should pray daily. So many people today,
                            even in holy week, give no thoughts to prayer.
                            They live from moment to moment and focus on
                            their life here as their end. Some want to be better
                            than everyone else. Some give into idle pursuits
                            and want to be stimulated constantly for they focus
                            only on themselves here and now with little or no
                            thought of their after life here on earth.

                                Some go from pleasure to pleasure, "buck to
                            buck", they look down on others, they have standards
                            they think are in and "others" who are not rich,
                            beautiful in body, educated, etc. are out of
                            their circle of persons who have worth to them.

                                I am a God of justice. I say to the sun to
                            shine and it shines. I make the baby in the
                            womb. You are haughty in your ways. Many do not
                            even know the Divine God that created them and
                            the sun and moon and ocean and the fish of
                            the sea. They do not see My creation in the
                            beauties of the earth.

                                Oh that they would have the wisdom to focus on
                            whence it comes than promoting their own glory.

                                Talents are given to man to help promote the
                            honor and glory of God. Think of the earth and how
                            it would be if people recognized the gifts given to
                            them from God, if they were humble creatures, if
                            they used their talents to promote My Kingdom
                            when many use them to promote themselves.

God the Father speaks:

                                Oh yea of little faith — Oh you haughty human
                            beings. I am the Divine God, I know all things,
                            I love all creatures of the earth, I am a God of justice.

                                A school play made so much fun of the Persons of the Trinity —
                            It was so evil — your children in Catholic schools
                            are allowed to disrespect the Deity in school plays —
                            They may write evil plays defiling the Persons of the
                            Trinity and they are allowed to put on the play. 
                            These abominable things are acted out for others to see
                            and yet the messages I send to promote the love of the Trinity
                            in the Mass and the Rosary among the youth are blocked.

                                How can heaven reach you with a message —
                            of the importance of the rosary to the school children?

                                The children in the Catholic schools need to pray
                            for the priests, the Church and the world. The Junior 
                            Shepherds of Christ have made little headway since it 
Few prayer chapters were begun. This has been 
                            going on for nine years and there are only a few children
                            praying the prayers.

                            My people — you must pray. So much money is
                                on this earth — it is no problem to spend large
                                amounts of money for concerts, evil magazines,
                                evil movies depicting illicit sex on big
                                screens for the youth of the world to see and
                                yet you will not give any funds to support the
                                school rosary program, these Ministries or help
                                with the payment on the Virgin Mary Building/Building
                                of the 2 Hearts/Jesus Building.

                            Little children are being taught perfection in
                                all these sports and moms and dads teaching
                                the children about perfection in their bodies and their 
                                lives here below, while little attention is given
                                to the life here after.

                            I want My children to pray the rosary.
                            You will not have peace in the world,
                                in families, in your hearts until
                                you do as Mary told you at Fatima.


Excerpt from the Spirituality of Fatima

by Father Edward Carter, S.J. 

            October 13, 1917

                In her message that day, Our Blessed Mother told the children:

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

Excerpt from the Spirituality of Fatima

by Father Edward Carter, S.J. 

July 13, 1917

    "The war (World War I, then raging) is going to end. But if people do not stop offending God, another and worse one will begin in the reign of Pius XI. When you shall see a night illuminated by an unknown light [January 2, 1938], know that this is the great sign that God gives you that He is going to punish the world for its many crimes by means of war, hunger, and persecution of the Church and the Holy Father.

April 8, 2004 message continues

God the Father speaks:

                            After the warning Mary your Mother gave
                                you suffered World War II.
                            Even yet you will not pray the rosary.
                            There were bodies thrown on heaps in World War II.
                            I tell you as your Heavenly Father —
                            You cannot ignore the messages any longer.

                            There will be a great era of peace in which
                                the Sacred Heart of Jesus will Reign and
                                Mary's Immaculate Heart will triumph,
                                but you must pray —
                                many souls will be lost.

                            Mary gave you a message in 1995 when she
                                appeared at the old seminary —
                                "Souls are dropping into hell like rain"
                            I tell you now she has appeared at the old
                                seminary and on the Virgin Mary
                                building for 10 years and you have
                                ignored her and My Son Jesus.

                            Think of all the youth that would have been
                                touched if you showed them the image
                                of the Virgin Mary in Clearwater, Florida
                                and told them to pray the rosary.

                            My faithful ones — in these Holy Days offer up
                                your sacrifices and pray as never before —
                                I have warned you and you will not
                                listen —

                            IN THE END
                                The Sacred Heart of Jesus will Reign
                                and Mary's Immaculate Heart will triumph —
                                    but many souls will be lost for all


God the Father speaks:

                          I am God the Father, I beg you to listen and
                                begin the prayer chapters My Son has       
                                given you —


                         My Son's face remains on the window

God the Father speaks:

                            Pray as never before


April 9, 2004 - Good Friday

Messenger:            A key to helping the intimate relationships run smooth
                            is to realize that women work through their problems by
                            explaining their feelings to their intimate other. They
                            "talk out loud" and then through understanding come to some
                            conclusion themselves.




April 9, 2004 message continues

Messenger:            A woman coming home from work may have had such
                            a hard day, she may tell her intimate other one problem
                            she had and then in the next breath jump to the other
                            side, rationalizing why she should not think the way
                            she did.

                                The worst her intimate other can do is offer a hasty solution to
                            her problem, when she is in the working out stage, expressing her
                            feelings and trying to get at what is the truth.

                                Many men do not understand this process most
                            women go through and can cause tremendous pains for
                            an intimate other while she cries inside "if only he
                            would have listened to my feelings and tried to understand,
                            I needed to work through my problem myself, I needed
                            him to listen and understand."

                                "Mr. Fix-it" is ready with a quick painless solution
                            and he is angry many times when he tells her how to solve her
                            problems and she didn't take his advise.

                                The woman can describe the feelings inside
                            of her and the magic answer for him many times could be
                            "I understand how you feel." The magic answer
                            may be to say, "Yes, I understand". "I am
                            sorry it is hard sometimes." "I want to understand
                            how you feel, I love you deeply." etc. etc.

                                Love is a paramount issue. People who grew up
                            in homes where one parent controlled were taught to
                            be dominant over others, they were not taught normal
                            negotiating skills and giving respect to the other. Some 
                            control for the sake of control for their own glory.

                                Karama a young Spanish speaking native
                            wanted to marry a man not like her father who
                            was very controlling and demeaning to her mother.
                            In her family women were to put up with abusive
                            remarks and do what the man told them to do, they lacked
                            communication skills and love was not shown. 
                            Power was shown not negotiation and care. In the end 
                            her dad died an alcoholic, her mom was beaten down
                            with pain trying to go from one of his antics to

                                Karama fell in love "she thought" with a
                            man who was just like her father. She didn't realize this.
                            He drank and was forceful. He didn't negotiate — he talked
                            harshly to Karama and abused her verbally to get his
                            way, he was loud and demeaning — his means were
                            that of force in being loud and demeaning to Karama.
                            Her children saw the same treatment of her that
                            she saw as a child and again it went on —
                            another generation of dysfunction — weak
                            women, forceful men, hatred, not love,
                            not rooted in a man acting like Jesus would
                            want a man to act. New house — different players —
                            same dance.

                                Jesus became a man. Jesus loved to His
                            death on the cross. Jesus was beaten, Jesus was
                            abused, Jesus was crowned with thorns and hung
                            on a cross.

                            made men and women different.

                                Only in loving will people have real intimate relationships.
                            Many men work out their problems and feelings by
                            isolating and working through things. Women work
                            their problems out in other ways, usually. Why did God allow
                            it to be so hard for men and women to work
                            through simple issues when they really do love
                            each other.

Messenger:            I see love as Jesus shows me love. God is love.
                            A person who loves their family will make sacrifices
                            for them, but the mother of a child on drugs or
                            alcohol is not helping child or husband or daughter
                            if they become an "enabler".




    Should a person take abuse verbally and
remain silent so one partner can dominate, can
the silent partner ever change the other's habits if the
abuser is "strong-willed" to be "on the top" and wants
everyone else under them?

situation one feels they cannot take it any longer

Messenger:            Some people just keep pressing on other's boundaries
                            because they are not spiritually oriented, do not
                            pray themselves and want to control, to be over,
                            they conquer as if they were conquering a field

Messenger:            The bottom line is their spiritual commitment
                            of one to a given situation. A Jesuit, Franciscan
                            gives their lives to the order, the people in authority
                            see themselves standing before God and answering

Messenger:            An active alcoholic in a family may force his will on
                            everyone else. He is driven by the drug, he is usually
                            not loving, he is, usually, not concerned with others
                            and their needs and wants. Children in alcoholic
                            families many times are not allowed to ask for what they
                            need, the alcoholic doesn't want anyone whining,
                            getting sick, showing their feelings, talking, he
                            wants complete control — he can fall down drunk,

                            how they need a broken knee fixed.



April 9, 2004 message continues

Messenger:            Oh the games people play, Oh the sicknesses
                            passed down. Why would your God allow it to be so
                            hard for men and women to communicate? Men and women
                            are different, men and women have different roles, you
                            are to let go of attachments to so many things to live
                            a pure life.



April 9, 2004 message continues

Messenger:             Men and women need to work in love, working
                            with each other's differences. Men and women are to

                            without a relationship with God?



April 9, 2004 message continues

Jesus speaks:           I ask My special ones to write to Me, love letters
                            of their love — to express their feelings and to open
                            the Blue Book and spend 10 minutes reading from
                            My Blue Book and 10 minutes meditating on the
                            writing and your relationship to Me. I am love, I
                            will teach you to love.




April 9, 2004 message continues

Jesus speaks:          People that are forceful for their own self-glory
                            can be very "off". They blow like the wind. They do not
                            have a solid rutter. They look for men of money and
                            fame, beauty, wealth, "what have you" to be their
                            god — they follow like the lifeless leaves on the
                            grass, they press on others under them, helpless others
                            showing their power and let others blow them around
                            like a leaf on the pavement.

                                Oh where will your direction be, when the winds
                            come from all sides and blow? The strongest wind
                            will get the lead — In a circle of men and women in
                            a meeting — the loudest strongest person will soon be 
                            known — he will take the lead and others will follow —
                            or two will battle a while for the lead and one sit back
                            part of the time and then the constant battle of wills goes on —
                            friction, tension, THE BATTLE FOR THE LEAD — STRONG
                             WILLED PEOPLE — not one's battling to do God's will or
                            promote the Kingdom — one's battling for their own self glory.

Psalm 22: 8-9, 17-20, 23-24

‘He trusted himself to Yahweh, let Yahweh set him free! 
Let him deliver him, as he took such delight in him.’ 

It was you who drew me from the womb 
and soothed me on my mother’s breast.

I can count every one of my bones, 
while they look on and gloat; 
they divide my garments among them 
and cast lots for my clothing. 

Yahweh, do not hold aloof! 
My strength, come quickly to my help, 
rescue my soul from the sword, 
the one life I have from the grasp of the dog!

‘You who fear Yahweh, praise him! 
All the race of Jacob, honour him! 
Revere him, all the race of Israel!’ 

For he has not despised 
nor disregarded the poverty of the poor, 
has not turned away his face, 
but has listened to the cry for help.


Philippians 2: 6-11

Who, being in the form of God, 
did not count equality with God 
something to be grasped. 

But he emptied himself, 
taking the form of a slave, 
becoming as human beings are; 
and being in every way 
    like a human being, 
he was humbler yet, 
even to accepting death, 
    death on a cross. 

And for this God raised him high, 
and gave him the name 
which is above all other names; 

so that all beings 
in the heavens, on earth 
    and in the underworld, 
should bend the knee at the name of Jesus 
and that every tongue should acknowledge 
Jesus Christ as Lord, 
to the glory of God the Father.


Matthew 26: 14-27

Then one of the Twelve, the man called Judas Iscariot, went to the chief priests and said, ‘What are you prepared to give me if I hand him over to you?’ They paid him thirty silver pieces, and from then onwards he began to look for an opportunity to betray him.

Now on the first day of Unleavened Bread the disciples came to Jesus to say, ‘Where do you want us to make the preparations for you to eat the Passover?’ He said, ‘Go to a certain man in the city and say to him, "The Master says: My time is near. It is at your house that I am keeping Passover with my disciples." ’ The disciples did what Jesus told them and prepared the Passover.

When evening came he was at table with the Twelve. And while they were eating he said, ‘In truth I tell you, one of you is about to betray me.’ They were greatly distressed and started asking him in turn, ‘Not me, Lord, surely?’ He answered, ‘Someone who has dipped his hand into the dish with me will betray me. The Son of man is going to his fate, as the scriptures say he will, but alas for that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! Better for that man if he had never been born!’ Judas, who was to betray him, asked in his turn, ‘Not me, Rabbi, surely?’ Jesus answered, ‘It is you who say it.’

Now as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had said the blessing he broke it and gave it to the disciples. ‘Take it and eat,’ he said, ‘this is my body.’ Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he handed it to them saying, ‘Drink from this, all of you,




August 23, 1993 - Message from Jesus

On His Passion

Jesus: My dear child,

I was condemned to death, death on a cross. They gave Me a big cross and made Me carry it. They stood around and glared at Me. It weighed on My shoulder and I pulled at it until it finally moved. Every step was almost impossible as I dragged it, weighing so heavily on My shoulders.

My shoulder felt as if the bones inside would crack and the cross would fall through to the ground. I couldn’t drag it any more. I tried, I fell. I fell and its weight fell on Me. A guard hit Me with something sharp. It really hurt because he wanted Me to move, and fast! People were watching -- on with the show! How dare I fall in the middle of the show! He hit Me again and the blow really stung Me. I got up because it hurt so badly. I tried to walk on.

My Mother was in the crowd. She looked at Me and her face looked red and hurt. Tears rolled down her cheeks like rain and as her eyes met Mine, I was hurt so by her sorrow! She was always by My side, silent and loving. She was My Mother of love! She is always there next to you when you suffer.

I fell again and he (the guard) really hit Me. It (the cross) was so heavy that he and I together could barely move it. It seemed as I walked, heavier with the sins of the world heaped on it. My hands were bleeding. Blood ran from the wounds of My thorns and My head throbbed, seeming to make the wounds in My head bleed even more. Some of the Blood was dried, some of it running all over My Body. I had so many cuts and bruises -- and people watched and laughed!

I am Jesus, Son of the Living God, and they laughed and mimicked Me! Oh, such hardened hearts! How vile can men’s hearts become? The devil’s grip is paralyzing and crippling.

The walk was so long up a hill and over rocks -- the cross had to be lifted over the rocks. My Body was bleeding so badly! My Heart was pounding. I knew that the salvation of all men depended on My love. Therefore, I went through such agony.

I thought of My intense love for you -- that many would go to heaven because of My suffering -- and I continued to the top of the hill. At the top they laid Me on the cross and with a big hammer nailed My hands to it. It was the worst (suffering) yet. My hands were nailed with big nails and the big hammer. Then, as if that weren’t enough, with a big nail they nailed through both feet.

Then they lifted the cross and banged it into (a hole in) the ground. My shoulders ached from how I hung. My head bobbed and My neck ached and they laughed and said, "Now save Yourself." I hurt so much! I suffered this way for hours -- which seemed like forever -- and they glared at Me and laughed! My Mother watched in such agony.

For love of you, to My death I gave you My Body. My child, I shed My Blood and gave you My life that you might be with Me forever in heaven -- not for 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 you is My Blood and food you eat is My Body. Who would lay down his life for a friend? I did, for you. I love you this much, child. Forget about those who reject you. You have My life that I gave you and I give you life eternal.

I am the One true God. I am the Light of life. He who abides in Me will have life eternal, for the drink I give is My Blood and the food I give is My Body. Drink and eat and have everlasting life.

My child, that is all you need to know. Love one another and be good that you may enter into My Kingdom.

John 19: 25-27

Near the cross of Jesus stood his mother and his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary of Magdala. Seeing his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing near her, Jesus said to his mother, ‘Woman, this is your son.’ Then to the disciple he said, ‘This is your mother.’ And from that hour the disciple took her into his home.


Mary'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.

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.'

Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart
of Jesus

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:

  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.

Sincerely yours in Their Hearts,
