Jesus speaks: I love you so much.



                     Fr. Carter was directed to write the Priestly
                  Newsletter for the Priests on this day May 31, 1994

Messenger:         I made a retreat every year of the Spiritual
                                Exercises of St. Ignatius with Fr. Carter
                                guiding me.

                            These Spiritual Exercises have effected
                                Fr. Carter's writings and my
                                spiritual direction.

                            Every year when the Movement was forming
                                and things were very busy, Fr. Carter
                                stopped many things and made his
                                retreat. He guided me and saw that
                                I made the Spiritual Exercise Retreat

                            Our Lord has told us in the Shepherds of
                                Christ to follow the writings of Fr.
                                Carter and the messages and writings
                                I have received.

                            The directions of St. Ignatius are very 
                                deeply woven in the spiritual direction 
                                Fr. Carter gave.

                            (I love St. Xavier too and St. Claude de Colombiere
                            and I pray through the intercession of Fr. Carter
                            and St. Joseph and Our Lady of Clearwater.)

                            Fr. Carter was told to begin the Priestly
                                Newsletter on this day May 31, 1994.

                            Our Lord has given us these writings as gifts to
                                help direct us. You can use these writings
                                and tapes for retreat. We have a retreat
                                in China, Indiana every 12th to the 14th
                                before the exposed Eucharist.


May 31, 2002 message continues   

Messenger:        I have been given these messages and
                                writings to deliver this message.

                            Fr. Carter was a spiritual director.
                            He wrote the Newsletter as Jesus told
                                him to write and as Jesus guided him.

                            Fr. Carter was directed to do what he
                                did by messages he received 
                                from Jesus.

                            The Movement Shepherds of Christ, the
                                way of life was set down during Fr. 
                                Carter's life and at his direction.

                            We follow what our founder Fr. Carter
                                told us. He directed this ministry and
                                he influenced the lives of many priests
                                and religious in the world through his
                                writing of the Priestly Newsletter.

                            We may have $0, but we have circulated
                                these writings as directed by 
                                Our Lord for almost 8 years now—
                                —worldwide—this has majorly effected
the world.

                            We have prayed the Shepherds of Christ
                           prayers as Fr. Carter directed us to do
                                beginning prayer chapters and praying
                                many times before the Blessed Sacrament
                                as Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart
                                of Jesus. This Movement, Apostles of the
                                Eucharistic Heart of Jesus is an arm of
                                the Shepherds of Christ Movement, it
                                was begun because of this message received
                                by Fr. Carter. Here it is in his own 
                                handwriting. The typed message and
                                other aspects of it will follow.

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.

Messenger:         Jesus is directing the world through these

                             There are so many books and tapes and
                                writings of Fr. Carter and the ones
                                I received from Jesus to write were very 
                                carefully discerned by Fr. Carter. It would
                                be very difficult for two people to do so 
                                much writing in 6 years and publish these.
                                These writings were very carefully discerned
                                by Fr. Carter. God has directed us in what 
                                we have done.

                            I remember one time in tears back by the Lourdes
                                Grotto in Holy Cross-Immaculata Church I was
                                looking at the last window and crying to our Lord,
                                "why don't You give a sign so people would believe?"
                                and Our Lord said to me "I give you My word."
                                Then I felt ashamed. I thought all the writings
                                in God's Blue Book, and all the messages and writings 
                                in Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary
                             and all He had given to me and to Fr. Carter
                                and I was ashamed that I was not thanking
                                Him and praising Him instead of worrying
                                about the people that are closed and not
                                hearing the voice of the Good Shepherd in the writings.

                            Well let me tell you.
                            God has given us a great sign in Our Lady of
                                Clearwater and she has been ignored,
                                her message is clear, it is for renewal
                                of the Church and the world.

May 31, 2002 message continues

Messenger:         She appears to lead us to the Movement
                                of her Son, Shepherds of Christ, to pray
                                for the priests and the renewal of the 
                                Church and the world.

                            God gives such a great sign and it is

                            Fr. Carter wrote the Priestly Newsletters as
                                Jesus directed him.

                            The Priestly Newsletters are gifts
                                given from God for the spiritual
                                direction of all and to help in
                                the renewal of the Church and the 
                                world that will help to lead men
                                into this great era of peace
                                promised by Our Lady of Fatima
                                where the Sacred Heart of Jesus will reign
                                and the Immaculate Heart of Mary 
                                will triumph.

                            Yes this is big—

Picture of the Sacred Heart of JesusAngels Will Read the Message

God's Blue Book I Cover

December 20, 1993 - 2:40 a.m.

Who will read the message? Angels will read the message. I will be by their side. I want the messages out. I want them out, I tell you. I want My people to hear all I am telling you. I want, not a few, but all to hear these words. They are private revelations given by Me to My people. The souls are, oh, so hungry for this one. They need to get these messages.

I am one crying in the desert. Make ready the way of the Lord. Prepare ye a path for the Master. He comes as a child in a stable. His people are asleep. Where are they and what are they doing with their busy lives? The angels will read the messages. They will rock the heavens and all will know My love and My might. From the housetops, shout this. Proclaim, "The day of the Lord is approaching. Make ready a path for Him." Will you comply with this demand to deliver a message to My people?

Time, child, is so short. You must ready all with My words of love. They are half asleep and dazed. They walk this earth with blinders on their eyes. My day will rock them off their rockers and they will know it is I with Whom they deal. No mistake will be made as to what is happening. All will see My power and My might. From the heavens shall come a sign and all will know from whence it comes. And the days that follow will be days to prepare men's hearts for My coming. I will not come unannounced. I will come with My power and My might and you will know what you will behold. Men will turn their hearts to Me with these messages. Get them out, I tell you, for their need is very great. I am patient and yet I am demanding. Ready yourself for this day of the Lord. I come as a baby into your midst, the angels sing, the choirs of heaven rejoice and you will know soon that I am very close to you all. Indeed you will know!

What awaits those in their feeble hearts! They run after such useless things when I, God, am talking in these letters. They think their world is their end. What an awakening they will have-a wide awakening!

I knock to make ready for My coming. You hear Me knock on your door in the night. Make ready this path so My people will read these letters of love. I am mighty and worthy of such praise. My people must realize My love in My intense might. What sign do you need? Do you think these messages were for your ears alone? Such power and wisdom in Rita's purse? This is not the idea. They are for all! My ease goes with you in all your undertakings to get these messages out.

Slow, too slow, I tell you. Shout My message from the housetops, that I am Lord and I am coming in your midst as a baby, but, with such might! My time is at hand. You tarry too long, My little ones. Time you do not have. This world is crazy! People are so busy at the malls. Oh, what foolish ones. I come as a baby into your midst. This is My birthday and whom do you worship? You worship idols! It is all such a sick world. Make ready My path, My little ones. Time is so short and you must not tarry any longer for into your hands I place My words for the world. They are mighty, little ones. Read them! What do you do with these words? Do you want proof? Look at Me hanging on the cross. It is out of this love of you I died a brutal death! Do you think I would not go to this extent to save the souls of My loved ones? Why would I come to this earth, give My life for all My beautiful creatures, and then, at this stage of the game, not send some mighty medicine to cure My sick little ones? You possess the mighty medicine. I mixed it with such love and I hand-deliver each message to shake My people to My love. The heavens will rock and the Son of Man will appear on a cloud and the glory of the Lord will be shown on high!

Get busy, you little people. The angels declare My words are given here. This is My gift to My people-distinct, clear letters proclaiming My love. Are you listening? Do you think I would not try everything to save My beloved ones?

Oh, I will go to any extent to save these little ones, so ornery and so stupid in their ways, so sinful in this evil world, but so precious to Me. I will come in My glory and I want every last soul.

I am God. Why would I not speak to you? I wait for you. I wait, I wait, but you are all so blind and dense. What you do is so silly. Your ways here have become sick and your hearts have become hard. But shout it from the housetops! I loved you to My death! I love you all in your sickness. I want you united under the mantle of My mother, praying and honoring God.

America, turn yourselves around before it is too late. Come and heed My harkening. Come, come, My children. Time is so short and a lot of mending must be done in your hearts. You have hardened them and now they must come back to life. Only I can give you this life in your hearts.

Heed My words here. I am gentle and kind in heart. My heart is a heart of love. I have hand-delivered these messages to My people and you are My delivery boys. Get them going, little ones. You tarry too much.

My gift to My people is My love this Christmas. I am showering all at this Center with grace this season. The devotion there pleases Me, but more must flock and they will be changed from hardened hearts to hearts for God. I am God, little ones. I came and I died a brutal death. I am calling to you all to deliver this now. Make this your top priority so they will hear My message of love and know the love I have for them. Do not tarry. Do this today, little ones.

Messenger:        We do not have funds for the Building

Out of all the people in the world and 

    all the money, we do not have
    enough money for the loan payment 
    on the building.

                           Please help us if you can, please we
                                desperately need funds to continue
                                what we are doing.

                            We would like to keep our 
                                "Treasures from the Hearts of Jesus
                                 and Mary" Bookstore in the 
                                 image building in Florida
                                 stocked with image rosaries        
                                 and blankets, rosary tapes
                                 and videos, Priestly Newsletter
                                 Books, pictures etc.

                            We have operated almost entirely on
                                donations in the past and by the 
                                grace of God we have sent 
                                the Priestly Newsletter around
                                the world for almost 8 years,
                                it went to about 75,000 priests
                                for a lot of years.

                            But we need money. We can't keep the store
                                stocked, we have to spend any
                                money we make on the Ministry.

                           Tomorrow is the month of the 
                        Sacred Heart.

                            I am so excited about the Feast Sunday—Body and Blood of Jesus

                            I am excited about the Feast of the Sacred Heart
                                next Friday, one week away. 

                            And the Feast of the Immaculate Heart next Saturday. 

                            The Feast of the Sacred Heart falls on First Friday.

                            We should be preparing for these feast in all our prayers.

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.

Prayer for Union with Jesus

    Come to me, Lord, and possess my soul. Come into my heart and permeate my soul. Help me to sit in silence with You and let You work in my heart.

    I am Yours to possess. I am Yours to use. I want to be selfless and only exist in You. Help me to spoon out all that is me and be an empty vessel ready to be filled by You. Help me to die to myself and live only for You. Use me as You will. Let me never draw my attention back to myself. I only want to operate as You do, dwelling within me.

    I am Yours, Lord. I want to have my life in You. I want to do the will of the Father. Give me the strength to put aside the world and let You operate my very being. Help me to act as You desire. Strengthen me against the distractions of the devil to take me from Your work.

    When I worry, I have taken my focus off of You and placed it on myself. Help me not to give in to the promptings of others to change what in my heart You are making very clear to me. I worship You, I adore You and I love You. Come and dwell in me now.

-God's Blue Book, January 17, 1994


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.
