Messenger:    Dear God the Father,

                        We LOVE YOU -

                        We thank you for Your gifts to us.

                        Help us to do Your will

                        Help us to be holy.

                                I am   Rita  
                                    Your little   girl  (boy)

      

Matthew 11: 25

"I give praise to you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, for although you have hidden these things from the wise and the learned you have revealed them to the childlike."

      
   

The Our Father

    Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

       

June 20, 2004 continues

Messenger:    Father, Please outpour Your grace to us.
  

                        God has called us to spread this Priestly
                            Newsletter that will go to so many priests
                            centered in consecration.

                        Mary said at Fatima until a sufficient
                            number of people have consecrated their
                            hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary
                            we won't have peace in the world.

Jesus speaks:  I call you to help Me to spread this consecration.

                        I call you to pray My prayers.

                        So many souls can be effected as the
                            Newsletter is spread to the priests.
                            Billions of souls.

                        I call you to pray for this endeavor.

                        I call you to pray your Morning Offering
                            and to pray for the souls -
                            pray for the Newsletter
                            pray for the priest doing it - every hour
                            pray because you love souls and you
                                want to help the face of the earth
                                to be a place of peace.

                        My Sacred Heart will Reign in the hearts
                            of the people and My Mother's Immaculate
                            Heart will triumph -
                            pray for this.

                        Be holy -

                        Be loving

                        Tell Me you are sorry for your sins.
  

Messenger:     Today Jesus gave me this vision -

                        It was a piece of bread being carried off by ants.

                        Our thoughts come into our heads and they
                            can be thoughts of negativism - division -
                            We must beg for grace to not give into
                            the temptation of living in a negative mode.

                        Mary appeared at Clearwater for over 7 years.

                        Mary appeared to lead us to Jesus.

                        Mary appeared to lead her children to her
                            Immaculate Heart and the Sacred
                            Heart of her Son.

                        We want to take refuge in these pure, holy Hearts.

                        In the Hearts of Jesus and Mary is our refuge.

                        Consumed with love for us Jesus mounted the
                            cross - He gave Himself -

  

  

June 20, 2004 continues

Messenger:    He gives Himself to us this day in the Eucharist

  

  

June 20, 2004 continues

Messenger:    Think of how we give into negative thoughts,
                            self-focusing thoughts that are thoughts of
                            self-pity.

                        We are given the image of the Heart of Jesus
                            consumed for love of us.

June 20, 2004 continues

Messenger:    Jesus, consumed with love for You, we mount
                            our crosses daily - and we die to self to
                            live more deeply in You.

                        Most Sacred Heart of Jesus we love You.

                        If Jesus gives us Himself through the hands
                            of the consecrated priest should we not
                            pray for them constantly because they are
                            so important -

  

  

  

Prayer for Priests.

"Lord Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the Flock, we pray that in the great love and mercy of Your Sacred Heart You attend to all the needs of Your priest-shepherds throughout the world. We ask that You draw back to Your Heart all those priests who have seriously strayed from Your path, that You rekindle the desire for holiness in the hearts of those priests who have become lukewarm, and that You continue to give Your fervent priests the desire for the highest holiness. United with Your Heart and Mary's Heart, we ask that You take this petition to Your heavenly Father in the unity of the Holy Spirit. Amen"

  

June 20, 2004 continues

Messenger:    Oh God thank You for the gift of Yourself, truly
                            present in the Eucharist -

    

  

  

  

     

June 20, 2004 continues

Messenger:    It is cold outside.

                        Many men's hearts have turned cold, but within
                            the inner chambers of the Sacred Heart of Jesus
                            we find solace from the cold nights
                                        solace from those who reject us

                                love to go on and to do what God has called us to do.

                        Dear God, we want to be empowered by Your
                            grace outpoured to us and our desire to live
                            this bridal union with You -

                        Dear God - we love You so much -

  


  

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.

Messenger:    My dear Jesus,

Jesus speaks:    When the trials come to you I will hide you
                               in a little pocket of My Heart.

                               I love you so much.
                               My child - they will not understand this mission.
                               My beloved I love you.
  

Messenger:    Dear Jesus,

                           Take me to Your Heart, that I may stay
                        there and feel refuge.

Jesus speaks:    My child

                                My Heart is consumed with love.

                          My child, My Heart is an endless vat
                            of love.

   
Messenger:    Whatever it is God calls me to, I must
                            do it with purity of intention
                            God calls me to serve Him -
                            serve Him as His bride with love -
                            loving God, loving others - that is
                            our prescription for life here -

                        How do I perform my deeds - do
                            I perform them all for the honor and glory
                            of God.

                        Do I live to please Him?

                        Do I focus on my eternity - when I 
                            will, hopefully, be with Him in
                            deep oneness forever.

                        I want eternity where I will be possessed
                            by God, where I will have
                            the fullness of life in Him.

                        I live for this - to be with my beloved forever -
                            to help save souls.

                        My life is His.

                        This is what the Shepherds of Christ is all about -

                        Jesus is our Bridegroom -

                        We live to please Him.

                        We are aware of Him always.

                        We live united to Him.

                        We live in Him.

                        We die more to self -

May 16, 1998 - Prayer to the Father

My Father,

        With my whole heart I desire to consecrate the whole world to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary. I wish with my whole being for the salvation of souls and that man live according to Thy Holy Will. I pray my Father that we may be one in You and Your Son Jesus and the Holy Spirit that we may intercede to You for this cause.

        It is this burning desire within my soul to spread the consecration to the far ends of the earth, that the cries of Your children are cries of glory and honor and adoration, praising God as their God.

        My Father, at this moment a soul hangs on the edge of death. For all eternity they will go to a place. It is not the plot of this soul as it trods this barren land to decide on the edge of death. You created us that we would grow in our oneness with God, that we would mature more and more in our image and likeness to God.

        And so My Father, I pray with every cell in my body for this earth. In the name of Your Son Jesus I consecrate all the souls of this earth to the Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart of Mary in the Holy Spirit in union with the Holy sacrifice of the Mass with all the angels and saints and the souls in Purgatory.

        I beg You Father for mercy.
        I beg You Father for assistance.
        I beg You Father to help us to spread this consecration to the far ends of the earth.

        Please help us. We are helpless little ones coming in the heart of our Mother, bleeding from our wounds and our sins.

        Your Son, Jesus Christ, shed the last drop of His Blood for the salvation of mankind. We wish to unite in this sacrifice, sacramentally made present in the Mass all over the world at every moment. Help us to make reparation to You for the sins of men.

        Please my Father, help us. Held in the heart of Mary and the Heart of Jesus we come as the children of Eve to beg for the Reign of the Sacred Heart and the Triumph of Mary's heart. Look upon our love, Your shepherds in the Shepherds of Christ, our sacrifices and devotion to You Our Beloved Father. Come by the means of the Holy Spirit and sanctify us and make us whole, that we are one in Your Son Jesus, praying to You, Father, in the name of Your Son Jesus in the Holy Spirit united with all the angels and saints, in the heart of Mary. We beg for help for special intentions concerning the Movement. We beg for help to reach the Churches to give these prayers of Jesus to them, to reach the schools and the family. Help we cry as poor banished children of Eve. Help us Father to do this work the Good Shepherd has entrusted to us. Help us to be one in You that we act as intercessors to help this world to be turned to God as their God, loving, honoring and adoring Him as the Lord of Host is truly present on His throne.

        We are Your children Father, we implore You to answer our prayer.
        We love You, we worship You, we adore You, we thank you and we sing from the bottom of our hearts, Holy God we Praise Your Name. Alleluia
