June 26, 2004

Messenger:    I want to bring to light the Mystery of the Mother of God.
                            How great to ponder the sinlessness of this blessed
                            virgin and to realize how very important it is
                            for us, for the Church to know Mary and think
                            of her sinlessness in relation to us the poor
                            banished children of Eve.

                        Since this picture —



June 26, 2004 message continues

Messenger:          I have so deeply
                            felt this deep connection with the Holy Spirit and
                            with the work of the Spiritual Exercises realize
                            more fully how we must pray for the Holy Spirit to
                            fill us, give us light, counsel us and lead us
                            in the truth.

                        The spiritual life for me is to ponder more deeply the Persons
                            of the Trinity in my heart, to know them and to
                            more deeply experience my relationship with God
                            in the Persons of the Trinity.

                        The more I am united to the Holy Spirit, I meditate on
                            my union with Him the more my heart is filled
                            with fire, knowing God more deeply, experiencing
                            joy for this so deep in my soul I cannot phantom.

                        It is fire that Jesus wants us to know, fire from the Heart
                            of Jesus, but to know the fire of God's love, I deeply
                            ponder my love and relationship with the Holy Spirit.

                        At times God floods my soul with His love at Mass especially
                            consecration and reception of the Eucharist, but
                            if grace is given every word of His Word, every
                            word of the Mass, I deeply experience in Him,
                            with such knowledge and love burning in my soul —
                            I can write the words of the song, I Love You Jesus —
                            I scarce can breath when he comes into Me,
                            but I scarce can breathe at the depth of interior
                            involvement I feel at each word spoken in the
                            Word or however He is acting on my soul to
                            teach me some insight into His love, the
                            Divine Mystery at that time.

                        The word mystery itself insights desire in my soul to
                            know more about God and His words.
                        Think what does the word mystery mean to you?
                        Christ is the ultimate mystery, but the mystery of
                            being sinless, is a mystery to me. In our attempts
                            to do God's work, we are aware of jobs we must do to
                            do His work that are difficult, but our desire to
                            do His will and still be loving always is a motor
                            force within me.
                             Incarnation — the incarnation goes on in the sinless
                                heart of Mary as the Holy Spirit works more and more
                                forming us in the image and likeness of God.

                        Would it not seem so important to me to see myself
                            in the spiritual womb (Mary's Immaculate
                            Heart) as is spoken of in this message given
                            by Jesus on the Holy Spirit.


Excerpt from Tell My People

The Holy Spirit

Jesus: "My beloved friend, tell My people to pray daily to the Holy Spirit. They are to pray for an increase in His gifts. My people must realize that the Holy Spirit comes to transform them. The Spirit desires to transform you more and more according to My image. Those who are docile to His touch become increasingly shaped in My likeness. He performs this marvel within Mary's Immaculate Heart. The more one dwells in My Mother's Heart, the more active are the workings of the Spirit. The Spirit leads Mary to place you within My own Heart. In both Our Hearts, then, your transformation continues. The more you are formed after My own Heart, the more I lead you to the bosom of My Father. Tell My people all this. Tell them to pray daily for a greater appreciation of these wondrous gifts. I am Lord and Master. All who come to My Heart will be on fire to receive the gifts of the Spirit in ever greater measure! I love and bless My people!"

Reflection: The Holy Spirit is given to us to fashion us ever more according to the likeness of Jesus. And the more we are like Jesus, the more Jesus leads us to the Father. Do we, each day, pray to the Holy Spirit to be more open to His transforming influence? Do we strive each day to grow in union with Mary? The greater our union with our Mother, the spouse of the Holy Spirit, the greater is the transforming action of the Holy Spirit within us.

Messenger:          Also it is important to pray to the Holy Spirit as
                            we do in this Novena to the Holy Spirit, Jesus gave
                            to me.



Holy Spirit Novena
Shepherds of Christ Publications
China, Indiana


Opening Prayer

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Dear Father, we come to You in the name of Jesus, in union with Him in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, in the Holy Spirit. We come to You united to the Child Jesus of Good Health and the Infant of Prague. We come to You in the perfect, sinless heart of Our Mother Mary, asking her powerful intercession, uniting ourselves to her holy tears. We come to You united to all the angels and saints, and the souls in purgatory.

Prayer for Holy Spirit

We pray for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit on us, to be baptized by the Holy Spirit, that He will descend mightily on us as He did on the Apostles at Pentecost. That the Holy Spirit will transform us from fear to fearlessness and that He will give us courage to do all the Father is asking of us to help bring about the Reign of the Sacred Heart and the triumph of Mary's Immaculate Heart. We pray for the Holy Spirit to descend mightily on the Jesuits and the Poor Clares on the Shepherds of Christ leaders and members and on the whole Body of Christ and the world.

Protection by the Blood of Jesus

We pray that the Blood of Jesus will be spread on us, everyone in our families, and the Shepherds of Christ Movement, that we will be able to move steadfastly ahead and be protected from the evil one.


We pray for healing in body, mind, and soul and generational healing in ourselves, in all members in our families, and in all members of the Shepherds of Christ Movement, the Jesuit Community, the Poor Clares, the Body of Christ, and the world.

Prayer for Strength and Light

We adore You, oh Holy Spirit. Give us strength, give us light, console us. We give ourselves entirely to You. Oh Spirit of light and grace, we want to only do the will of the Father. Enlighten us that we may live always in the Father's will.

Eternal Spirit fill us with Your Divine Wisdom that we may comprehend more fully insight into Your Divine Mysteries.

Give us lights, Oh Holy Spirit that we may know God. Work within the heart, the spiritual womb of the Virgin Mary, to form us more and more into the image of Jesus.

Prayer to Be One with God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit

We long for You, Oh Spirit of Light, we long to know God, we want to be one with Him, our Divine God. We want to be one with the Father, know Him as a Person most intimately. We want to know the beloved One, the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and live and dwell in Him at all times, every moment of our lives. We want to be one with You, Oh Spirit of Light, that You move in us in our every breath.

Prayer to Be One in Jesus

Let us experience life in the Sacred Heart of Jesus, so we can say as Saint Paul, "I have been crucified with Christ and yet I am alive; yet it is no longer I, but Christ living in me...." Let us live, united to the Mass, all through the day being one in Him. Let us be able to love and know in this elevated state of oneness with our God. We long for Thee, oh beauteous God, we love You, we love You, we love You. We praise You, worship You, honor You, adore You, and thank You, our beloved God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Prayer to Dwell in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary

We seek to be one in God, to live and dwell in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, our little heaven on earth, to experience life in the all perfect, pure, sinless heart of our Mother. We want the Holy Spirit to move in us and to be united to Jesus as the Bridegroom of our souls and be a most perfect sacrifice offered to the Father at every moment as we unite in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass around the world to help in the salvation of souls.

Prayer for the Holy Spirit and His Gifts

Come Holy Spirit, come, come into our hearts, inflame all people with the fire of Your love.

Leader: Send forth Your Spirit and all will be reborn.
All:  And You will renew the face of the earth.

We pray for the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit, we ask for perfection in our souls to make us holy, holy souls likened to God.

Dear Holy Spirit, we give ourselves to You soul and body. We ask You to give us the Spirit of Wisdom, Understanding, Counsel, Fortitude, Knowledge, Piety, and Fear of the Lord.

Prayer for the Word Alive in Our Hearts

We know, dear Holy Spirit, the Word in His human nature was brought forth within the womb of the woman. We pray that His word will be brought forth in our hearts as He lives and dwells in us. We want the incarnation to go on in our lives. Dear Holy Spirit, work in us.

Little Prayers to the Holy Spirit

Dear Holy Spirit, help us not to be ignorant or indifferent or weak, help us to be strong with the love of God.

Dear Holy Spirit, please pray for our needs for us.

Dear Holy Spirit, help us to respect God and to avoid sin. Help us to live in the Father's will.

Dear Holy Spirit, help us to keep Your commandments and to respect authority. Help us to love all things as You will us to love them. Help us to want to pray and always serve God with the greatest love. Help us to know the truth. Help us to have the gift of faith, hope, and love. Help us to know what is right and what is wrong.

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.

Messenger:          I beg for greater grace that I am not blind to those things
                            that keep me stuck on my spiritual journey
                            to Him.

                        Remember the message Jesus gave about moving the
                            big furniture out of the way, June 3, 2004.

                        In the Spiritual Exercises we pray for the grace to see —
                            we learn about spiritual discernment, if it is
                            the good spirit working in us, prompting us to
                            act or the evil spirit.

                        In all the experiences I have had from Our Lord and visions
                            of Our Lady, I can clearly say, I would feel stagnant
                            right now and the movement likewise had we not
                            begin the retreats in January 2004 and had one each
                            month, with a focus from the Spiritual Exercises, the
                            Rosary and the writings Jesus and Mary have given to us.

                        My heart is longing to be stimulated and filled with
                            greater knowledge of God.

                        The Spiritual Exercises when directed purely, the
                            retreats in China before the Blessed Sacrament
                            are a key to growing in the Spiritual life.

                        What is life, if it is not deeper life in Him.

                        DEPTH —



June 26, 2004 message continues

Messenger:          When I received great insight into the Presentation
                                July 13, 1995, I beheld the infant son in the arms
                                of Mary and she knew the sufferings to come — whenever
                                she saw Him at play, she knew sufferings to come —
                                Jesus and Mary shared "a secret" so to speak in their
                                heart — she knew of deep sufferings to come and
                                whether spoken or unspoken they had deep
                                intimacy with this knowledge — the Divine
                                all knowing God and the virgin knowing much
                                from the Prophesy of Simeon —

                        To me that all came to a deep fullness when Christ peered
                            into Mary's eyes on the way to Calvary.


August 10, 1994 After Mass, Fr. Smith’s Chapel

And Their Eyes Peered Into One Another's Eyes

Messenger: See Mary as she beholds the baby in her arms. She looks at Him so tenderly. His sweet baby eyes look up at the eyes of His loving Mother. Such tenderness between Mother and Son, such oneness to hold her infant Son so lovingly in her arms. Oh, do we ever know the tenderness between a baby and his loving mother?

A life of close union between this Mother and this Son, a life of her looking into His loving eyes. Such silent, but strong and loving communication! Such a strong bond-Their eyes meeting-from one soul to the other soul.

Song: See the Eyes That Look at Mary (Verse l)…

Deep, deep communication, a deep bond, indescribable in words, a touching of the souls! And the peering look between Son and Mother on the road to the crucifixion. What a peering look, what communication between this Son and Mother. Seeing the other suffer was as agonizing as each's very own suffering-suffering and oneness between a Son and His Mother. A peering look, deep into the very souls. Such an intimacy between Them!

How can one describe in words this oneness, this union between the Son and His Mother? The perfect love between Him and her. Total giving of each person in such love to the other. To see the suffering of the other was as agonizing as-if not more than-each's own suffering.

How His passion and crucifixion were intensified by the sufferings of His dear Mother! How her sufferings were such a sharing in our redemption, the swords that pierced her Heart! The eyes of Mary that invisibly bled as she watched such brutality to the beloved Baby she once carried in her womb and held in her arms!

Song: Little Baby Hands and Feet…

Mary held the Child Jesus when He was a baby; she watched Him and cared for Him as a little boy; she was so attentive to the needs of her little Son. Will we ever know this connectedness between Their loving Hearts? Do we know this oneness? The peering eyes on the way to Calvary tell the story. They tell the story of this oneness. They tell the story of her watching this horrid event of her beautiful baby Son and His horrible passion and death.

Her eyes! Oh, Mary, help me to see the love of Jesus through your eyes! You watched Him as a baby, you watched Him as a child. You watched Him grow into the beautiful Man He became and you, Mary, watched Him all through this bitter passion and death. Your eyes saw the love that He gave for us. Now you come, Mary. You appear to tell us to go to this Son. You knew more than anyone His love to suffer so for us. You come and appear with blood in your eyes and tears running down your cheeks. You show me your sorrowful face, your young face, your old face, your joyful face. This was the face Jesus peered at as He walked His walk to Calvary. This was the face that appears now to tell us the story of His love this very day. I see your parade of faces, Mary, old and young, sorrowful and joyful. I see these faces that Jesus beheld. Your face tells the story of His love for us.

Mary speaks: This is my beloved Son. This is my Baby. This is the Child I bore in my womb. He came to give you love. He came to be God-made-Man among you this very day. He is, my children, no less present in the Eucharist than He was at Calvary and you go after such incidental things. My Son loves you. I show you my face so you can tell the world of our love. Live our lives in the rosary. Let our lives live in your day. The way to eternal happiness is to be likened to my beautiful Son.

I watched my Son. I lead you to the ardent love of my Son, Jesus. His Heart burns for love of you. Come to Him this day. Give Him your love. Spend time with Him. He is alive and in your midst in the Eucharist.

Messenger:. Note: I smelled roses very strongly throughout this message.

Song: See the Eyes That Look at Mary (Verse 2)…

This is the Son of the Father, the Son of God, born of Mary through the Holy Spirit, and He lives this day in your hearts. Share His love for you. Go to Him through Mary's Heart. She who is so closely united to Jesus! Their Hearts are so close to one another! As their eyes were joined in such oneness, Their Hearts are joined in such intimacy. Go to Jesus' Heart through His beloved Mother, through her who bore Him in her womb, her who watched Him give Himself for love of you.

                                in Clearwater


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.

Excerpt from August 13, 1996 Rosary

The Visitation

Mary speaks:  My dear children, on the 13th of this month I come to you to deliver this message. I have not given to you this message before. I am Mary, your Mother. I ask you to come to my spiritual womb, to take refuge from the terrors of the night. In my womb, I will hold you close to me and protect you from all the terrors in your life. Do not give in to Satan. Satan is a roaring lion, prowling this earth, attempting to catch you in his snare. You must not surrender. You must give your heart to me and to the Heart of my Son. Please, my little children, come to me and I will care for you. I am your Mother. I am caring for you with the greatest motherly love. You do not know how I want to mother you and to love you. You are as little children, afraid and wounded. I will heal your wounds. I will comfort you in your fear. I am the Mother of greatest love and I love you, my little children. I will take you to the Heart of my Son, Jesus. This is a special message that I deliver for you this evening. May you hold this message in your heart, and may you come to my heart at every moment and find refuge from the terrors of the night.

Messenger:     Here is what others saw that night —


Vision as seen by Ellen Sartori, August 13, 1996
Arlinghaus' Farm, Shepherds of Christ meeting

"I had a profound experience this evening. As soon as the rosary started, I looked up towards the sun and I couldn't turn away. I realized there was a covering over the sun and that I would perhaps witness the miracle of the sun. Instead, after a few rotations, I began to see clear pictures: first, I saw the cross, Mary and Joseph holding our baby Jesus, and then what seemed to be a large Host, the Monstrance, and an angel holding up the Host, but I wasn't sure so I closed my eyes and said to myself, 'Dear Lord, I would love to see an angel as I have never seen one.' And with that within a split second a huge figure appeared, bigger than life, and came crashing to the earth, right before our group and returned. It was St. Michael! I recognized him immediately - his short, curly blond hair, his armor, which was brownish, but the whole figure of Michael was orange. His presence filled the whole area with bright light. It is difficult to describe, but I see St. Michael before me now as he appeared and want to share this with everyone because, surely, he has appeared to assure us of his protection for the Shepherds of Christ."

* Warning: Eye damage can occur from staring at the sun.


Vision as seen by Mary Rettig, August 13, 1996
Arlinghaus' Farm, Shepherds of Christ meeting

"On August 13, 1996 during the Shepherds of Christ prayer meeting, I saw the miracle of the sun.

When John started the Seven Sorrows of Mary, the sun appeared to be spinning through the trees. There was a disk in front of the sun. The disk was turning different colors including "Virgin Mary Blue". Different colored lasers also appeared to be coming from the sun.

The sun started growing brighter than normal that I had to close my eyes. When I opened them, the tree below the sun had turned to a brilliant light. The Angel of the Lord was in the tree.

I then noticed a very blue line coming down the middle of the river towards our side of the shore. After the blue line reached the shore, I felt a drop of water on my forehead. I looked up and saw nothing. I proceeded to pray when, I felt another drop of water fall on my forehead. One more time I looked up and saw nothing. When I looked towards the river again there was a brilliant golden light standing on the river. The brilliant golden light, which was the Angel of the Lord, ascended from the river and disappeared over the state of Kentucky.

I then looked straight ahead towards the deck, and when I did, I noticed more brilliant lights in the bushes and trees surrounding the deck and us. *There appeared to be angels encamped all around us.

Next I noticed the bottom branches of the tree directly in front of the deck moving and bending, it is then that I saw the brilliant outlines of Jesus and Mary in the tree. They were standing side by side in the tree during the entire rosary."

*Footnote~ On Monday night I kept waking up from my sleep hearing myself say, "The angel of Yahweh pitches camp round those who fear him; and he keeps them safe."

Given June 25, 2004

Jesus speaks:  People come from all kinds of homes.

                        In one home everyone may be loving —
                            Mother loving Father — and being
                            loving to children, children learning
                            how to love. Children learning to
                            do good things. They focus on living.

                        Other children may come from homes where
                            they had to focus on survival. Mom
                            and dad were unloving to each other,
                            unloving to the children, children
                            fought with each other being taught
                            many unloving ways from parents.

                        When the children grow up and they relate
                            with others they carry with them
                            these relationship skills.

                        What more can be said.

                        Mary Jane was a little girl that learned
                            the computer skills from her older
                            brother. She was good at the computer.

                        John learned wood working from his dad
                            he was a carpenter.

                            Babies are born into the world. They
                        learn from their caretakers whether mom
                        and dad or grandma or grandpa, they
                        learn about love.

                            The television today is teaching many
                        things to youngsters, good and bad.

                            Mary and Jesus are our model.
                            The holy family is a good model.

                            In alcoholic homes, the non-alcoholic
                        dealing with the alcoholic can become
                        very sick. They may see themselves as above
                        and the alcoholic as sick, so they enable
                        him by the things they do.

                            In most alcoholic homes that have not
                        undergone some form of recovery, the
                        non-alcoholic becomes so focused on the
                        alcoholic they quit working on themselves.

                            Some people go from place to place
                        trying to fix everyone else. As soon as they
                        walk into a place, they raise themselves
                        above others and others become needy for

                            In community life people should
                        be able to get along, but if certain people
                        are making relationships with others — trying to
                        make others needy on them, dysfunction
                        occurs. They can spend all their time
                        working out past problems on those
                        around them.

                            Mary Ann had argued with her superior
                        continually. She was unable to do what
                        she wanted at home and she vowed
                        she would never be under anyone again.

                            There were a liter of dogs. One of
                        the dogs was the most aggressive —
                        he was fighting all the other dogs to
                        be on the top. A man bought this
                        dog. That dog could not stay in the family —
                        the man had to get rid of him because
                        he bit the instructor at obedience school and
                        disobeyed every one. He was a dog that did bad
                        things. The man may have, for his purpose, got
                        a dog on the bottom if he wanted one
                        who would be docile and loving.

                            Children often hurt each other
                        while playing. Some may just fight
                        and cause a fight, just for the
                        sake of fighting.

                            Some are argumentative for attention.
                        Some tell parents on their brothers
                        just to get attention.

    Some people tell the superior
troubling things just to get attention.
It may not even be entirely true.

Jesus speaks:         A person had a bad arm. It had to be operated
                            on to remove the obstruction. Until this was done the
                            person would be in tremendous pain and would not
                            be able to move freely.

                                A person that is in tremendous pain from
                            childhood can have years and years and years of
                            stuffed pain depending on how painful the original
                            situation was and what the child had to do to

                                Recovery can help alleviate the pain but it is
                            like peeling an onion, once one admits the truth of the
                            hidden pain within the recovery can begin. If one
                            fails to admit the truth or does not deal with their
                            hidden situation but is a person housing tremendous
                            hidden pain — they will, in an attempt to resolve
                            the serious situation and reduce the pain, they may work out the
                            situation of the hidden story within on those around them.

                                In abusive situations where people have continually
                            hurt innocent others they may employ a scapegoat,
                            "whipping boy" to explain to themselves why their
                            life is so painful.

                                This can allow one to function with many others
                            on the outside as if they are carefree, confident, kind
                            and loving. While those usually on the home front suffer
                            the abuse and projection the wounded party acts on
                            them. Carol Lou was a girl from a very strict rigid
                            family. Feelings of the children were stuffed. The home
                            was run in such a way that Carol Lou was not able
                            to learn healthy, loving patterns giving and taking,
                            knowing she was important, normal needs that children
                            have. Birthdays were not celebrated with love.
                            Carol Lou had very much stuffed pain.

                                Carol Lou married a young man. There was constant
                            tension and a battle exploded almost daily where once she
                            had hidden the voluptuous, nature she had. After the
                            marriage she began to project her hidden pain on him.
                            It came to a head when on one birthday she began a
                            fight after the singing of the birthday song where she
                            should have blown out the candles.

                                She began shouting and he could not believe what he
                            heard. It had nothing to do with him. The pain from all
                            the birthdays like many layers of an onion came to
                            him like a hard ball year after year of painful suppressed
                            feelings when she should have celebrated her birthday with
                            joy and instead was giving a lashing.

                                This is an example, you may say who is so hard
                            hearted to be so mean on a birthday, but there are
                            wounded birthday children all over the earth, but
                            especially in America the land of the plenty.

                            Sing: Come Holy Spirit

                                This is an example that I give to you My child
                            to unveil the workings of satan in your lives for he
                            has worked in communities, families and the Church
                            to destroy the oneness of many.

                                Talk about discernment of spirits. Carol Lou
                            had so much deep pain she did not 
                            recognize what she was doing. Only a movie taken
                            finally revealed to her the vindictiveness of her sharp
                            tongue and the confrontation of the husband before a
                            counselor forced her to deal with her bizarre rages.

                                How many people today whose pain is so deeply
                            hidden have raged at an innocent member of the
                            family or community, have given looks that look like
                            they could stab and have denied the gravity of their
                            actions because they saw it as normal.

                                What is normality?

                                The question more I desire you to answer is what
                            is love. How will you act?

Mary speaks:         I give you the mysteries of the rosary, I am your
                            spiritual mother. So many of my children are wounded
                            and because of pride they will not get help. My Son
                            Jesus has given to you so much grace from my site
                            in Florida and from the retreats in China, Indiana.

                                My Son Jesus has called you to discern the

                            Sing Song: Come Holy Spirit

                                I give to you the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius.

                                It is very difficult to live in community life,
                            there are so many divorces, the deterioration of the
                            family is real.

                                God gave you one another that you would love
                            that you would be more perfected as your Heavenly

                                My children of light come to my spiritual womb
                            and the Holy Spirit, when they ask Him, will flood
                            their soul with His grace.

                                Children of darkness are those that follow the evil
                            one. A man fought with his wife daily because she
                            squeezed the toothpaste tube at the bottom and left the
                            lid off. At long last on her way to work one morning
                            while pondering the ugly words of her husband and
                            feeling very wounded and bowed down she made a left
                            turn in front of a tractor trailer who immediately
                            clipped her, her car went into flames and she was dead.

                                I am a God of justice, I am a God of light,
                            you are the poor banished children of Eve. Your Mother
                            in the sinless Virgin. She will crush the head of the
                            evil serpent.


Excerpt from December 29, 1996
Message given through Rita Ring

R. "...he who is your teacher will hide no longer, and you will see your teacher with your own eyes." (Isaiah 30:20)

Jesus: Yes, I am the Teacher of whom they speak and I will reveal to them the secrets of My Heart through these writings and the teacher will be brought to light as the children of light are conceived and brought forth from the womb of the woman.

She is the woman clothed as the sun. She is Our Lady of Light bringing forth her children into the world and the devil's deadly influence will be no more for, as children are conceived and dwelling within the Immaculate Heart of My Mother, she will smite the dragon and they will be protected, My children of light.

And they marched together, children of light and children of darkness and in the darkness you could hear the wailing cries go forth and the gnashing of teeth. They cried forth a brutal cry of death as they fell into the everlasting abyss of destruction and doom.

Oh, I warned them all. The Lady appeared, adorned in light. She coaxed them to come to her heart, the womb in which they would be transformed and know the light and they said, "No, my Lady, we need not your Immaculate Heart. We are tainted in our souls and we will remain children of darkness enveloped in our sins, for we wanted our world and your demands for purity were too high."

R. How could we think Christ's last words on the cross were not important to us? In His dying moments, He gave us His Mother.

He came, our Savior, our King, our Almighty God. He took flesh in her womb, through the power of the Spirit, He was carried in her arms as a helpless baby, He went to the temple and there Simeon said..."Now Master, you can let your servant go in peace, just as you promised; because my eyes have seen the salvation which you have prepared for all the nations to see, a light to enlighten the pagans and the glory of your people, Israel." (Luke 2:29-32), and "..You see this child: he is destined for the fall and for the rising of many in Israel, destined to be a sign that is rejected--and a sword will pierce your own soul too--so that the secret thoughts of many may be laid bare." (Luke 2:35).

Israel, being the holy city in which He built His temple, in which He lived, in which the Blessed Virgin walked and talked and carried the Son of God in her womb.

For nine long months she carried Him within her womb. Oh children of Mary, some of you listen to His dying words on the cross, some of you do not hear. And darkness covered the earth. For as Simeon predicted, this child is destined for the rise and fall of many in Israel. Many would reject their Mother. The Lady, clothed as the sun, the woman that carried the Light within her womb for those long nine months while He was formed within her body through the Holy Spirit, the Comforter, the Counselor, the One who is forming the Church into all it is to be.

Christ showed us the way.

Jesus: I came in this woman. The Holy Spirit sanctifies and makes holy. I, who am God Almighty, perfect holiness, comes in this holy womb and I am born the Light of the World. My Light shines on that night, the day of My birth. I lived and I was carried and I was so close to this woman of light, the one chosen by the Father. I stuck close to her. So important were those years I walked the earth for I showed you, I walked hand-in-hand with you, My creatures, always by the side of Our Mother, your Mother and Mine...

June 26, 2004 message continues

Jesus speaks:         I am Your Teacher, the Holy One of Israel. Do
                            you listen so you are taught or do you plug your
                            ears to Me and listen to the evil one.

                                Why would you not discern the spirits?

                                Why are you so prideful, for the short life below
                            you hold on to your pride wanting a position that you
                            are admired.

                                But most people will not admire you, they are
                            focused on themselves and their own recognition.

                                So foolish you are little ones that you do
                            not recognize the inconsistencies of the children
                            you worship. One day they whistle your praises the
                            next day they blow a damaging horn in our ear.
                            Seek out the true treasure the gifts given from the
                            Master, the Heart filled with holy love.

                                Let the Mother crush the head of the serpent.
                            For you see the damage that Eve did when she ate
                            the apple after being tempted by the serpent.

                                Do you study My Word and use your studies to
                            make you wise and over others or do you study the
                            Word to help you to grow in the spiritual life for

                                How many ministers have thought little of
                            their own sins when delivering a fire and brimstone
                            message to the people, dramatist on the stage,
                            only to walk away and commit the very sins
                            they warned the people against. Take the clog
                            from your own eye before you try to remove it
                            from your neighbor.

                                A night watchman watches in the night so the
                            thief will not come and carry off the silver.

                                But you who have teeth of silver fail to watch
                            the thief who walks on the tongue in your mouth.

                                And I enter your tongue, and I am the Divine
                            God. Do you guard your own temple? Do you see
                            the heights that I wish to take you to —

                                The little babies went out to play. On the
                            driveway was a pile of mud washed down from
                            a heavy storm. It was filled in a pool of water —
                            Babies are babies. They see the mud pile, they have no
                            care for their freshly cleaned white clothes.

                                Two children were let loose at the same time from
                            the same place. There was a large mud hole filled
                            with water and a high mountain glistening white
                            bright filled with light and covered, as it looked,
                            with glistening white snow.

                                Oh My people I write to you and tell you
                            My ways. I give you My Word. It begins with
                            the fall of Adam and Eve, then Cain and Abel then
                            the story of Noah and the rainbow —
                            I give you trees that bear fruit and you think the
                            lesson I teach is about apples.

                                Why My precious ones would I begin the Bible
                            with the story of Adam and Eve and Cain and Abel
                            if you think you do not have to discern the spirits?

                                 Ah, ha!!!
                                Ah, ha!!!
                                Ah, ha!!!

                                I am the New Adam
                                My Mother is the New Eve, THE SINLESS ONE.

                                You are blind.

                                Oh I watch the snake curl around your feet as
                            you do not walk in My ways, but you follow the
                            way of the world.

                            At the end of the Bible


Revelation Chapter 12

Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman, robed with the sun, standing on the moon, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. She was pregnant, and in labour, crying aloud in the pangs of childbirth. Then a second sign appeared in the sky: there was a huge red dragon with seven heads and ten horns, and each of the seven heads crowned with a coronet. Its tail swept a third of the stars from the sky and hurled them to the ground, and the dragon stopped in front of the woman as she was at the point of giving birth, so that it could eat the child as soon as it was born. The woman was delivered of a boy, the son who was to rule all the nations with an iron scepter, and the child was taken straight up to God and to his throne, while the woman escaped into the desert, where God had prepared a place for her to be looked after for twelve hundred and sixty days.

    And now war broke out in heaven, when Michael with his angels attacked the dragon. The dragon fought back with his angels, but they were defeated and driven out of heaven. The great dragon, the primeval serpent, known as the devil or Satan, who had led all the world astray, was hurled down to the earth and his angels were hurled down with him. Then I heard a voice shout from heaven, 'Salvation and power and empire for ever have been won by our God, and all authority for his Christ, now that the accuser, who accused our brothers day and night before our God, has been brought down. They have triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word to which they bore witness, because even in the face of death they did not cling to life. So let the heavens rejoice and all who live there; but for you, earth and sea, disaster is coming-- because the devil has gone down to you in a rage, knowing that he has little time left.'

    As soon as the dragon found himself hurled down to the earth, he sprang in pursuit of the woman, the mother of the male child, but she was given a pair of the great eagle's wings to fly away from the serpent into the desert, to the place where she was to be looked after for a time, two times and half a time. So the serpent vomited water from his mouth, like a river, after the woman, to sweep her away in the current, but the earth came to her rescue; it opened its mouth and swallowed the river spewed from the dragon's mouth. Then the dragon was enraged with the woman and went away to make war on the rest of her children, who obey God's commandments and have in themselves the witness of Jesus.      


 Revelation 21: 1-10

Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; the first heaven and the first earth had disappeared now, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride dressed for her husband. Then I heard a loud voice call from the throne, 'Look, here God lives among human beings. He will make his home among them; they will be his people, and he will be their God, God-with-them. He will wipe away all tears from their eyes; there will be no more death, and no more mourning or sadness or pain. The world of the past has gone.'

Then the One sitting on the throne spoke. 'Look, I am making the whole of creation new. Write this, "What I am saying is trustworthy and will come true."' Then he said to me, 'It has already happened. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give water from the well of life free to anybody who is thirsty; anyone who proves victorious will inherit these things; and I will be his God and he will be my son. But the legacy for cowards, for those who break their word, or worship obscenities, for murderers and the sexually immoral, and for sorcerers, worshippers of false gods or any other sort of liars, is the second death in the burning lake of sulphur.'

One of the seven angels that had the seven bowls full of the seven final plagues came to speak to me and said, 'Come here and I will show you the bride that the Lamb has married.' In the spirit, he carried me to the top of a very high mountain, and showed me Jerusalem, the holy city, coming down out of heaven from God.

Revelation 22: 7

I am coming soon!’ Blessed are those who keep the prophetic message of this book.


Revelation 22: 12

Look, I am coming soon, and my reward is with me, to repay everyone as their deeds deserve.


Revelation 22: 20

The one who attests these things says: I am indeed coming soon.
     Amen; come, Lord Jesus.


                            Given on the Feast of the Holy Rosary in '94.



                            It is good to note these scriptures.


Colossians 1: 15-20

He is the image of the unseen God, 
the first–born of all creation, 
for in him were created all things 
in heaven and on earth: 
everything visible 
    and everything invisible, 
thrones, ruling forces, 
    sovereignties, powers—
all things were created through him 
    and for him. 
He exists before all things 
and in him all things hold together, 
and he is the Head of the Body, 
that is, the Church. 

He is the Beginning, 
the first–born from the dead, 
so that he should be supreme in every way; 
because God wanted all fullness 
    to be found in him 
and through him 
    to reconcile all things to him, 
everything in heaven 
    and everything on earth, 
by making peace through his death 
    on the cross.


1 Corinthians 15: 20-28

In fact, however, Christ has been raised from the dead, as the first–fruits of all who have fallen asleep. As it was by one man that death came, so through one man has come the resurrection of the dead. Just as all die in Adam, so in Christ all will be brought to life; but all of them in their proper order: Christ the first–fruits, and next, at his coming, those who belong to him. After that will come the end, when he will hand over the kingdom to God the Father, having abolished every principality, every ruling force and power. For he is to be king until he has made his enemies his footstool, and the last of the enemies to be done away with is death, for he has put all things under his feet. But when it is said everything is subjected, this obviously cannot include the One who subjected everything to him. When everything has been subjected to him, then the Son himself will be subjected to the One who has subjected everything to him, so that God may be all in all.
