                    13 Years ago today, May 31, 1994,  Fr.
                Carter said he got a message
                from Jesus to send the
                Priestly Newsletter to all the priests
                he could all over the world. Jesus
                told him - every 2 months — centered
                in consecration to the 2 Hearts.
                Jesus told him to send it to all the
                priests in the United States immediately. He
                would do it because Jesus told him
                to. They argued with him, but Fr. Carter
                always did what Jesus told him, not
                what others tried to get him to do.

                    He sent this Newsletter in July, 1994.
                We have circulated about 5
                million Newsletters, at least by now
                under the editorship of Fr. Carter, S.J.

                    The same month Father Carter
                sent out the first Priestly Newsletter
                Mary began to appear to me daily at
                an old seminary where the
                Cincinnati diocese priests had attended.
                Fr. Carter went daily for 4 months. I
                began the first core prayer chapter for Shepherds
                of Christ where Mary appeared daily at the old

                2 1/2 years later - the image of
                Mary appeared on the building
                in Clearwater, Florida and we passed
                out Prayer Manuals and Newsletters and
                Blue Books where the image appeared.

                Right before Fr. Carter got the message
                to begin the Priestly Newsletter - the
                corner of the old seminary fell off
                in minutes —




                    This was Lucia's birthday the main
                Fatima visionary.

                    We acquired the Virgin Mary building
                9 years ago today. Fr. Carter always
                told me to put out the Priestly Newsletter and
                keep the Virgin Mary building, by
                the grace of God — 13 years later
                we have done this.

                    The letters we have received
                spreading the Newsletter these 13
                years are so numerous.

                    Every Newsletter was like a
                baby — trying to get it out
                Fr. Carter circulated 33 Newsletters
                every other month until his death —
                He circulated them in English and

                    The Prayer Manual was translated
                into 6 languages with the Imprimatur
                right away. And prayer chapters were
                begun all over the world, right away.
                We have circulated so many prayer
                manuals all over the world — then I
                put the prayer manual in most all books.

                    Fr. Carter also taped a good many
                of the Newsletters and we put out 2
                Volumes of Priestly Newsletters
                which included all Newsletters but
                4 while he was alive.

                    Here is a message he got from
                Jesus on the Feast of St. Ignatius.



July 31, 1994

Words of Jesus to Members of
Shepherds of Christ Associates:

"My beloved priest-companion, I intend to use the priestly newsletter, Shepherds of Christ, and the movement, Shepherds of Christ Associates, in a powerful way for the renewal of My Church and the world.

"I will use the newsletter and the chapters of Shepherds of Christ Associates as a powerful instrument for spreading devotion to My Heart and My Mother's Heart.

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

- Message from Jesus to Father Edward J. Carter, S.J., Founder, as given on July 31, 1994,
feast of Saint Ignatius Loyola, Founder of the Society of Jesus (The Jesuits)


                    In 1996 he got a message to look
                for a center and we traveled from his
                Jesuit residence to China, Indiana
                where we got lost in St. Anthony's Church —
                we laughed and laughed - we were in China —
                the next week we were told St. Anthony's
                was available for some Ministry —

                    We received the Church from the
                Archdiocese for this work. We have
                sent the Priestly Newsletter foreign
                mailing out of China for
                10 years. It is our Eucharistic
                Center. We were given the right to have
                the Eucharist exposed there 24 hours
                a day.

                    We pray 24 hours a day from our
                Church in China for the priests, the
                Church and the world. We have prayed
                there for 10 years.


                    I taught in college part time
                for a good part of my life —

                    People at the last faculty meeting
                all were like "tooting their own

                    I said to myself what focus is there
                on the student body, where is
                unity as a body working together.
                It continued and it was that way
                with the faculty — self-focused

                    Now the instructions Fr. Carter
                and I got from Jesus were really
                directed. People would argue with
                Fr. Carter for his sentence structure
                in the Newsletter — He had a doctorate
                in theology and authored 17 books on
                the spiritual life and to have dominance
                first a man putting it out (publishing)
                would argue with Fr. Carter for days
                about English and he had a 5" high
                binding dictionary. Fr. Carter
                put up with this. He argued about
                all the words in Blue Book III and
                my sentence structure and changed
                some of the ways. He said that
                Revelation 12:1 had nothing to do with
                the coronation for example, too many
                so muchs when speaking of God's
                love. Too much talk in my writings
                about oneness.

                    The Blue Book III was held up
                for years and then I went back and put
                it all in my original composition.
                I always write everything with
                no eraser marks and that is how I
                speak — directly as They spoke through
                me while Mary and Jesus appeared
                and they were transcribed from a
                tape as in the Apostles Manual and
                discerned by Fr. Carter.

                    Fr. Pasquini has been part of
                this Movement for 1 1/2 years.

                    Fr. Carter a Jesuit theologian
                discerned all my books and then they
                sent them to 3 Jesuit theologians
                to be discerned.

                    Jesus told me when He began
                the 13ths — 3 months before Mary
                appeared at Clearwater to have
                big days of prayer beginning October 13, 1996
                and He would begin with what
                He intended to help to bring to
                completion the Fatima mission
                on the 13ths. And so there were 6
                very important 13ths in the Apostles
                Manual and Mary appeared in the

                    After the man publishing the first
                Priestly Newsletters moved on — a woman
                continued his process - arguing with
                Fr. Carter about his English. All
                this is bottom of the mountain stuff,
                but it proves a point — how satan
                works on a person and they argue and argue
                where they have no business meddling.

                    When I wrote the Mass Book the
                Shepherds of Christ Center was in my home.

                    They came in where I had received
                all of the Blue Book messages in my
                study and turned it into an office
                with metal file cabinets and then
                argued how Fr. Carter had no business
                taking me away at 1:30 in the
                afternoon for Mass for it was right
                in the middle of the day.

                    Fr. Carter told me to pray at
                12:00 noon and then go to his Jesuit
                residence where he celebrated Mass
                at 1:30. I had so many revelations
                and the Mass Book was written
                because it was the time God
                wanted between 12:00 and 3:00 to
                tell me about the Mass.

                    Once they called a big meeting
                in my own house, around my own
                dining room table, about 17
                people to tell me that I got
                messages, but they could tell me
                what to do about my life.

                    I am a shy person, God picked
                me. I studied Math — I taught Math —
                that is how it was — I am just
                shy — people would with strong
                wills try to knock me over, but
                God picked me so— I always
                treaded softly with a handicap
                to do something, ask somebody
                for something was hard — so
                hard for me, but the more
                Mary appeared and Jesus spoke
                I did what I was asked to do.

                    The messages I received and a
                few from Fr. Carter formed the
                Shepherds of Christ Movement. Jesus
                spoke through my heart under Fr.
                Carter's direction to form
                this Movement to what it is today.

                    Fr. Carter said the Blue Books
                were as much mine as his and he
                worked much harder than me
                to see they were published and
                discerned 4 times by him.

                    He listened to my messages and
                made sure we obeyed them — he
                looked for them — he said any
                leader that didn't go on the 13th
                could not be a leader and leaders
                MUST live by the Blue Books.

                    Almost every person in this
                Movement was brought in through
                the Blue Books— their lives
                were changed.

                    Before Mary appeared December 17, 1996 —
                Jesus called meetings every 17th since
                February 17, 1994 and He had an agenda of
                messages and songs — on the internet
                under 17th book.

                    People wanted to change the
                date — they argued and argued with
                me. I had to stick to the 17th —
                Jesus wanted the 17th — they

                    Now I know the retreats and 5ths
                and Sidney Rosary are days of prayer
                that give us tremendous grace to
                do what we are doing and days of
                grace to pray for the world.

                    Jesus speaks through me and
                when He asks us to sing and pray,
                I am doing it in a powerful
                way with others who have been
                trained for 13 years to be powerful
                intercessors at Mass and at these
                gatherings praying for the priests,
                the Church and the world.

                    I have written every day for
                9 years on the internet and
                at least 15 published books
                many in English and Spanish.

                    Now today is a day to rejoice
                for I bring you this message —

                    God has given us the Priestly
                Newsletter for 13 years, the building
                in Clearwater, the Church in China,
                Prayer Chapters all over the
                world —

                    Books of consecration and the
                Rosary for Tiny Tots to Elderly,
                priests, married people, religious
                all vocations —

                    Discs, videos — English
                Spanish with Imprimatur



                    Help me do the work God called
                Fr. Carter to — God called you
                to listen to the cry of Mary on
                this Feast of the Visitation

                    By the grace of God we have
                visited the priests about 5,000,000
                times over the past 13 years and
                prayed continuously with a net
                work of prayer chapters —

                    God told Fr. Carter to start
                the Shepherds of Christ to help renew
                the Church and the world.

                    Many people came with
                their ideas — DO IT MY WAY —
                We are here because I did it
                Jesus' way.

                    I am, Rita Ring, co-founder and
                messenger of the Shepherds of Christ Movement —

                    For years before Fr. Carter's death
                we have spread 200,000 homemade rosaries,
                consecration cards, rosary meditations
                to the Catholic Schools yearly.

                    The rosary program has
                been in effect since 1995.

                    The nursing home ministry

                    Publishing 1994
                        Books, Videos, DVD's

                    This Movement and the
                Priestly Newsletter is a gift
                from God —

                    Here is how Mary appeared
                on all these 5ths when I
                went to Florida —

                    Please hear the voice of
                the Good Shepherd and help me.

                    This is a message from
                Our Lord and Our Lady —

                    The Shepherds of Christ is Jesus' Movement
                and it has produced fruit abundantly
                through out the whole world to help
                to bring to completion the mission
                Our Lady began at Fatima 90
                years ago.

                    Order a Fatima/Clearwater
                statue today. Help us keep the
                Virgin Mary building where the
                image appeared a place of
                prayer to spread the love of the
                Church and pray for the priests,
                the Church and the world and
                also to spread the consecration
                to persons, homes, schools,
                churches to the Sacred Heart
                and Immaculate Heart.                 

                    Jesus is God and He was
                crucified on a cross by people
                who did not see.

                    Mary appeared in Clearwater
                to give a sign that she wants
                us to reach the souls with
                this message she began
                at Fatima.

                    Help me reach the
                hungry souls and pray for
                the priests, the Church and
                the world.
