Mary has requested that the daily message be given each day to the world. It is read nightly at the prayer service from her Image Building in Clearwater, Florida, U.S.A. This is according to her request. All attempts will be made to publish this daily message to the world at 11 p.m. Eastern time, U.S.A.

We acknowledge that the final authority regarding these messages rests with the Holy See of Rome.

I appear my children on this former bank building in Florida, Our Lady Clothed with the Sun.

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.


               Pray for 5 urgent intentions.

               Pray for a particular bishop and cardinal.

               Pray for the pope.
We desperately need funds.
          Please pray for this.

Messenger:        How hot is hell?    

Jesus speaks:     How little many know of the truth
                                because they are rooted to their
                                earthly whims.

                            Oh men that you would open your eyes
                                and your hearts and see how
                                it really is.

                            Oh you block your own vision by your
                                over-emphasis on the here and now.

                            Oh that you would look to the saints.

                            Oh that you would live to be possessed
                                by God.     

Messenger:        What I have seen and what I know
                                as He has revealed it in my
                                heart is His truth
                                that swells within me.

                             My longing for Him is like a
                                thirsty man on a parched
                                desert and to write to you
                                about the truth is beyond
                                anything I could put on
                                this paper.

                             My soul is torn by the deeds of
                                men of this earth and the practice
                                of many.

                            Not that I see myself as higher than others,
                                I see myself as a messenger and great
                                truths have been revealed to me and
                                my heart cries for the souls of this
                                earth and I feebly attempt to do
                                that which I have been commissioned
                                by Him to do.

                            Oh if I cry for help from you and you do
                                not hear, what is left to be said
                                to penetrate the deafened ears
                                and the blind eyes.

                            For I give you these pictures as a 
                                form of "joggling instrument"
                                to say could we really make this
                                happen on the window during our 
                                6:20 prayers?

December 17, 1995


I long to unite in the deepest union with Him in the Eucharist. I long for the Mass. I long for Thee, oh God. My every moment, I join as I did to You December 15 under the cross, where I felt Your presence. You whisked me away, and I was totally absorbed in that moment of celestial union with You. For that time, I existed only in You, in the deepest union, and I was in this moment existing in You. The earth stopped, and I touched the heavens, all my bodily cares were existent in You. I existed in Your Divinity, my being was in You. There was no desire or wish or wanting, for in that moment, I had all I wanted in You. I was satisfied and wanted nothing but to remain in that embrace. You were the Being, and my being existed in You, but I was only as I was in You - merged in You, knowing and being in Your Divinity and being so full as to feel complete in myself.

You are so enormous, and You surrounded me in a burning embrace, the presence of red fire. I was not little, or "nothing", but existed in this enormous power and being so complete!

I touched eternity, and in that embrace, I knew all the waiting was worth the glory. You enveloped my being, and I was truly merged in the Divine Presence. I was merged in Your being. I existed IN You, with You, in the highest union with You, although I knew I was still distinct from You.

I was fused and absorbed in You, feeling complete and satisfied. To describe this union is far beyond any work of my pen and paper. I pray for the reader of this page to receive the grace to share this experience with Him, I will now live for this union-to be forever merged In Him, to be One in Him, to reach higher perfection as I exist in Him, for He takes the lowly and gives to them a sharing in Himself. He merges with us and we exist in Him. The word "in" - I could write pages about. I long for the deepest union with Him, where I am swept up in the heavenly embrace of the Divine God, and I am IN Him.

This is heaven on earth: to be merged as one with Divinity, although remaining distinct from God, to take our feeble hearts, our lowly status and to unite ourselves with the Divine, Almighty, powerful God and in this union to be meshed with Him, that His power dominates and our humanity reaches its heights of fulfillment in this union, in this oneness with Him.

The word I have looked for is "oneness." I understand some of the meaning of the words "One in Him." Oneness is the word to describe this union of our humanity with His Divinity. The depth to which we could meditate on oneness with God is incomprehensible. In that moment, the earth stood still, and He, my Divine Lover, the Bridegroom of my soul, took me to Himself, and I knew the embrace of the Divine God.

Nothing on the face of this earth can describe our union with Divinity. Oh, good God, that creatures are so ungrateful regarding Your divine love. I am so sorry. Let me help make reparation to Your adorable Heart. Please unite with me now that I may more deeply love Thee.

Oh, Divine Lover of my soul, let me help make reparation to Your adorable Heart for the neglect and indifference against You.

Song from Jesus: I come to you with greatest love. I am your loving Savior. I am your God. I died for you. I come to you this day.

He allowed me to experience such pain in my heart - wanting Him so badly, so many times-and then on Dec. 15, 1995 - He gave Himself to me in the deepest union.

Nothing satisfies the soul but Him. He wants the nuns and priests to love Him. He chose them to spread His love.

Souls are hungry. They will only be fed with His burning love. Priests need to talk about Jesus' love for us from the pulpit. Priests need hearts burning for love of Jesus. This will feed the hungry souls - lip service love doesn't do it.

He is alive today. He is a Person. He wants us to love Him.

From December 20, 1999 message

Given December 19, 1999

Messenger: I prayed that I could identify more with His love for souls, to understand more the sufferings of Jesus’ Heart and Mary’s Heart for the loss of them.

I am consumed with love for souls, especially the young, for they are without learning and being trained now, and I am sorrowing, for they are being trained as this world is, not as He wishes. I am sorrowing for the lack of truth and realization that this is serious and we must do as God wishes.

My sorrow is coupled with my trust which I wish to grow more and more. Trust in His Sacred Heart. For having experienced this sorrow for souls and the conditions of the world and how we are offending Him by our ways, I feel utterly close to Him and closer than ever to the souls He loves so much and He died for.

Mary speaks: My heart, my children, to watch the children that give in to the world and give up their souls. Oh I cry to you, my Son shed His Blood for them. He sweat His Blood in the garden. Today if He appeared to you, you would see a man with Blood in His eyes. Oh my children, Blood and He shed it. Now today, you will not turn your wills to God, you run after evil things. Oh my children, oh my children, oh my children, I am sorrowing, you suffer some of the anguish I felt for souls. Oh my children, I suffer. Be kind. Live to help save souls. You are a body. If you wish to be led home, come to my Immaculate Heart. Oh children, help me. I CRY!

Jesus speaks: I am consumed for love of souls.

My Mother cries for the youth.

Her tears on the 17th flooded the earth.

Her tears are tears for the youth.

Oh the children.

I am consumed with love for souls.

If you want to please Me this Christmas, pray for them.

Oh, I am consumed with love for souls.

Pray, oh pray from your hearts, beg for forgiveness and mercy as a people.

Beg the Father for forgiveness, you have offended your God.

Oh, Father, Son and Holy Spirit love you.

Oh, I am consumed with love for souls.

Identify with Me in My suffering.

I sweat Blood in the garden.

Oh, I am consumed with love for souls.

Messenger: On December 19, 1996, I received the following message.

Message of December 19, 1996 (from Mary Image Card)

Mary speaks: My dear children, I give to you my Son Jesus, born in a stable in Bethlehem on Christmas morn. He is the Almighty God, the Light of the World.

I appear to you, my children, on a (former) bank in Florida. You have made money your god! Do you know how cold are your hearts? You turn away from my Son, Jesus, for your money. Your money is your god.

I am Mary, your Mother. I do not appear as I once appeared to you. I am asking you today to circulate my message given on a tape on the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, December 12, 1996. Please circulate this tape now. Give it to as many people as you can. I am Mary, your Mother. Please circulate my Rosary Book.

Messenger: On December 20, 1993, I was awakened early in the morning with knocking (I believe on the door). It was strong knocking, and there were lights in the room. I heard, "Angels will read the message", over and over again. I heard "Angels will read the message." Whenever Jesus woke me early in the night, He was filled with emotion and I knew I should jump from my bed to receive the message. I was summoned quickly from the bed, and I ran to the study downstairs where I receive the messages. I will never forget this message or this experience, for it was so strong. I could not sleep afterward, I was up all night. When I delivered it the next morning, they acted like it was no big deal and were afraid to publish it as the Lord requested, because they said it was too strong.

This message is a most important message to Our Lord. He referred to it often, and wanted it put in the Apostles’ Manual.

Please read it with all seriousness. It is important.


Picture of the Sacred Heart of JesusAngels Will Read the Message

God's Blue Book I CoverDecember 20, 1993 - 2:40 a.m.

Jesus speaks: 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.

Dear Mr. Weickert, 

Just to tell you that the <Shepherds of Christ: Spirituality Newsletters 2> by the late Father Edward Carter SJ have safely arrived in the Mail-Bag.  Although, looking at the PS Tag, I just notice it says "No. of Sacks 2 of 2".  This would seem to indicate there was/is another bag (still) on the way, or missing.  The bag we did receive contains 12 books. 

If indeed another bag should arrive, I shall inform you immediately.  We took the bag which arrived, I believe, last Monday, 29. April, from the post office in _______. 

Thank you and the many good people who support the Shepherds of Christ Ministry.  I am sure our priests and religious will treasure Fr. Carter's book and make good use of it for their own spirituality and for the good of the people entrusted to their care. 

With prayerful good wishes, + _____

Dear Rev. Father,

I have received copies of the book Shepherds of Christ Spirituality 2 Newsletters by Father Edward Carter S.J. Thank you very much. I have gone through the book. I am happy say that it is good book to grow in devotion to Jesus, the Good Shepherd. The scriptural reflections, theological insights and spiritual thoughts given in the book are much inspiring. The book is a scholarly and devotional presentation on many subjects like of love of God, Eucharist, consecration etc. The love and mercy of God are beautifully treated in the book. I congratulate the editor and publishers of this devotional book.

I have given the copies of the book as compliments to different seminaries in the diocese so that the coming generation may read and get inspired of the book.

I wish you all the best in all your apostolate there. May Jesus bless you abundantly!

Yours in Jesus Christ,

I promise you I will not be the last person to read it in my province. Your prayer for the Priests, the church and the world is going to be our prayer too.

    May God continue to bless you and your noble and holy work.

We have discussed in Our Diocesan Priests Meeting for the need 
of reading as for our Young Priests who are looking after Nineteen of rural Parishes in our Archdiocese. The first book to be given to them after our meeting is the Shepherds of Christ and they were pleased and appreciated receiving them. So you see how the Shepherds of Christ has helped our young priests in reading.
Please do not forget us in your next version.

            Thank you and God Bless. A mass will be celebrated for your intentions.

Yours Sincerely,

                                        Thank you for your kind note and for your
                                beautiful collection of Shepherds of Christ Newsletters.
                                I have appreciated the consistent emphasis on the
                                value and need for devotion to our Lord's Sacred
                                Heart and the many wonderful reflections which have
                                been written with this devotion in mind. We certainly
                                need more good people like yourself praying for 
                                Bishops and for the Church.

                                        I hope that the blessings which the good Lord
                                has in store for you are not all saved up for your future
                                in heaven but that they, at least some of them, be
                                showered down upon you during the course of your
                                earthly journey here.

                                        I pray that God will ever let His face shine
                                upon you. Asking every good grace and blessing of
                                God upon you, I am

                                                                                                    April 25, 2002

                       Dear Fr. John,

    Thank you very much for your kind letters dated April 7 and 16 last together  with the many enclosures concerning initiatives started by Fr. Edward J. Carter.

    I am pleased to inform you that the devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Immaculate Heart of Mary is widespread in this Archdiocese, as also the Divine Mercy devotion. In fact, our Archdiocese has been solemnly consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on August 15, 1997, Feast of Our Lady's Assumption and the 50th Anniversary of _____'s independence. This consecration is renewed every year in all our parishes. I do it officially in our Cathedral. Besides, all families are encouraged to consecrate themselves to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and this year we are going to make a special drive so that the image of the Sacred Heart can be enthroned in those homes where it is still not done in our Archdiocese.

    It might interest you to know that in the 80 of the 113 parishes in this Archdiocese, we have daily adoration to the Blessed Sacrament from early morning till late in the evening. The practice of having all night adoration in parishes once a month is growing steadily.

    I was deeply impressed by the photographs you sent me of the image of Our Blessed Mother in the Church of Our Lady of Clearwater. It is touching to note the tender love and concern of our Heavenly Queen.

    I recommend the Archdiocese of _____ and my pastoral ministry to your special prayers. Thank you very much in anticipation. Rest assured of a regular memento at Holy Mass.

                            With cordial regards and sincere good wishes, I remain

                                                            Yours fraternally in Corde Mariae                                                              + _________

                                                                                                                05 May 2002

                        Dear Rev. Fr. Carter and the Team of "Shepherds of Christ Ministries", 

    On my return to ______, I find the parcel of FIVE books which you have so kindly sent me. Thank you very much for your generosity and for the thoughtfulness you have so consistently shown.

    This month, three of the Diocesan Priests whom I ordained in their home Parish are celebrating their Silver Sacerdotal Jubilees. When I opened your postal-bag and found your books, I said to myself: this is just the best present I can make to each of the three Jubilarians. The fourth copy has gone to the Library of  Bishop's House, and the fifth copy I am keeping for my own personal use in the Retreats I am constantly called upon to give Priests and Seminarians.

    Let me take this opportunity to thank you and all your benefactors for all the copies of the review "Shepherds of Christ" which you have been regularly mailing to me and which I send to each of the four Deaneries in this Mission Diocese. Hopefully, much good will come to those who read it.

    With sincere thanks once again and every good wish and blessing for the approaching Pentecostal Season, and will all good wishes.

                                                                        Fraternally in Our Lord,



                        Dear Fr. Carter,

                            May the Peace, the Love and the joy of the Risen
                        Christ live always with the Shepherds of Christ Ministries.
                        I hope you are all doing very well over there as we
                        are here. Thank you so much for the materials about
                        your Ministries. It is extremely rich in its content.

                            I can only use the words of Our Lady to express the
                        joy that is in me  "My souls magnifies the Lord and my
                        Spirit rejoices in God my Saviour."

                            Father, at the dawn of this millennium, there is really
                        a great need to pray for all consecrated men and women
                        throughout the world. Without the grace of God, we can
                        only do evil acts, but all the good that is accomplished by
                        us and through us should be ascribed to Divine Goodness.

                            Extend my warm and sincere greetings to all executive
                        body of the Shepherds of Christ Ministries.

                            In union with the Immaculate heart of Mary and the
                        Sacred Heart of Jesus, I unite with you in Love.

                            God Cares and Is always in charge!

                        To:         Shepherds of Christ Ministries
                        Sent:      Wednesday, May 1, 2002 7:20 AM
                        Subject:  Received six books

                         Dear Rev. Father,

                        The Peace and Joy of Christ!
                        I have very gratefully received six copies of "Shepherds of Christ",
                        Spirituality Newsletters 2, all of them in good condition. All six copies
                        will shortly be registered into our library and made available to the
                        staff members and seminarians of this major seminary. The fruit of the
                        dear late Fr. Ed Carter's work has turned out to be profound and popular.
                        United in prayer for the great work you are doing for the ongoing 
                        spirituality of priests worldwide,

                        Sincerely yours in Jesus,
                        Fr. _____
                        Professor and Librarian

                                                                                                    29th May 2002

                        Dear Father Edward,
                            Thanks be to God, and to you and to the Shepherds of Christ
                        for accepting me as one of the associates of the Shepherds of 
                        Christ in spreading the devotion of the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.
                        I am very grateful for the two books I have received from you 
                        through Br. _____. Those books are volume one and two of the 
                        "Shepherds of Christ Spirituality Newsletters". The first volume I 
                        received about two weeks ago and the other one I received yesterday.  
                        I am very happy and grateful to you. Those books cover the period 
                        from July 1994 to 1999 the fifth issue. I have a great hope that even 
                        the other issues you will send them to me. I also received the prayer 
                        manual and some different prayer cards.

                             I am Fr. ____, a religious and a missionary Priest of the local
                        congregation of the _______. Our Congregation was founded
                        in 1986 and up to now, we are 21 priests, 5 brothers by vocation 
                        and about 60 seminarians on both philosophy and Theology.

                            At present, I am working in the formation house as one of the 
                        formators, in our Theologicum. At the same time, I am also dealing 
                        with the young people who are desiring to join different Institutes 
                        of the religious life, ie. to help them to discover their vocation better. 
                        Also as our charism requires, we preach Parish missions retreats and 
                        seminars on prayer, spreading the devotions of the Hearts of Jesus 
                        and Mary. That was why I was very happy to receive those books 
                        you sent to me through Br. ______because they give me alot of
                        materials to help others and also to enlighten me. It is my hope that 
                        you will continue helping me and making my work easy and more 
                        effective through sending me such tools as those books.

                              Please Father, I would like to inform you that I appreciate your 
                        work very much but I am sorry that I cannot be able to offer any  
                        material help such as money. Yet I sincerely promise you to offer  
                        much prayers and Holy Masses for your intentions.

                             As we continue communicating, we shall continue knowing each 
                        other better and better, helping each other, especially spiritually. I wish 
                        you and all the members of Shepherds of Christ Associates a holy and 
                        happy Feast of the Most Sacred Heart of Christ on 7th June and 
                        Immaculate Heart on 8th June.

                             May God Bless you and your work. Thank you very much.

                                                                                    Sincerely yours,
                                                                                    Fr. _______

Messenger:         On September 5, 2001, the images of Mary
                                and Jesus appeared dark on the building
                                during the 6:20 prayers. We did not have
                                money for the building payment then and
                                for rosary beads all summer in 2001.

                            On September 6, 2001 I got this message
                                from Jesus.

Excerpt from September 6, 2001 message

Jesus speaks:     It is not the responsibility of 100
                            people to support such a vision.

                         It is a gift from God.

                         This shows you the focus of men
                            and your news.

                         Your eyes are blind.

                            We need money to make the building payment and
                                we have never been more at a need for
                                funds. We really operate on the
                                apostles', servant's and handmaid's
                                donations almost entirely. We have 
                                circulated the priestly newsletter entirely
                                on donations since 1994. Where is the
                                rest of the people of this world.

                            God is Almighty.
                           God is giving us a message.
                           Men are creatures of the Creator.
                           He has all the Power.

                           We have money for $70 opera seats and
                                all these other things.

1 John Chapter 1


The Incarnate Word
and sharing with the Father and the Son

Something which has existed
   since the beginning,
which we have heard,
which we have seen with our own eyes,
which we have watched
and touched with our own hands,
the Word of life-
this is our theme.
That life was made visible;
we saw it and are giving our testimony,
declaring to you the eternal life,
which was present to the Father
and has been revealed to us.
We are declaring to you
what we have seen and heard,
so that you too may share our life.
Our life is shared with the Father
and with his Son Jesus Christ.
We are writing this to you
   so that our joy may be complete.


This is what we have heard from him and are declaring to you:
God is light,
    and there is no darkness in him at all.
If we say that we share in God’s life
while we are living in darkness,
we are lying,
    because we are not living the truth.
But if we live in light,
as he is in light,
we have a share in another’s life,
and the blood of Jesus, his Son,
cleanses us from all sin.

First condition: to break with sin

If we say, ‘We have no sin,’
we are deceiving ourselves,
and truth has no place in us;
if we acknowledge our sins,
he is trustworthy and upright,
so that he will forgive our sins
and will cleanse us from all evil.
If we say, ‘We have never sinned,’
we make him a liar,
and his word has no place in us.


1 John Chapter 2

My children, I am writing this
    to prevent you from sinning;
but if anyone does sin,
we have an advocate with the Father,
Jesus Christ, the upright.
He is the sacrifice to expiate our sins,
and not only ours,
but also those of the whole world.

Second condition: 
to keep the commandments, 
especially that of love

In this way we know
that we have come to know him, 
if we keep his commandments.
Whoever says, ‘I know him’
without keeping his commandments, 
is a liar,
and truth has no place in him.
But anyone who does keep his word, 
in such a one
   God’s love truly reaches its perfection.
This is the proof 
that we are in God.
Whoever claims
    to remain in him
must act as he acted.
My dear friends,
this is not a new commandment 
   I am writing for you,
but an old commandment
that you have had from the beginning;
the old commandment
   is the message you have heard.
Yet in another way, I am writing 
    a new commandment for you
—and this is true for you,
    just as much as for him—
for darkness is passing away
and the true light is already shining.
Whoever claims to be in light
but hates his brother
is still in darkness.
Anyone who loves his brother
    remains in light
 and there is in him
    nothing to make him fall away.
But whoever hates his brother
    is in darkness
and is walking about in darkness
not knowing where he is going,
because darkness has blinded him.

Third condition: 
detachment from the world

I am writing to you, children, 
because your sins have been forgiven 
    through his name. 
I am writing to you, fathers, 
because you have come to know 
    the One who has existed 
        since the beginning. 
I am writing to you, young people, 
because you have overcome the Evil One. 
I have written to you, children, 
because you have come to know 
    the Father. 
I have written to you, parents, 
because you have come to know 
    the One who has existed 
        since the beginning. 
I have written to you, young people, 
because you are strong, 
and God’s word remains in you, 
and you have overcome the Evil One. 
Do not love the world 
or what is in the world. 
If anyone does love the world, 
the love of the Father 
    finds no place in him, 
because everything there is 
    in the world—
disordered bodily desires, 
disordered desires of the eyes, 
pride in possession—
is not from the Father 
but is from the world.
And the world, 
    with all its disordered desires, 
is passing away. 
But whoever does the will of God 
remains for ever.

Fourth condition: 
to be on guard against Antichrists

Children, this is the final hour; 
you have heard 
    that the Antichrist is coming, 
and now many Antichrists 
    have already come; 
from this we know 
    that it is the final hour. 
They have gone from among us, 
but they never really belonged to us; 
if they had belonged to us, 
    they would have stayed with us. 
But this was to prove 
that not one of them belonged to us. 
But you have been anointed 
    by the Holy One, 
and have all received knowledge.
I have written to you 
not because you are ignorant of the truth, 
but because you are well aware of it, 
and because no lie 
    can come from the truth. 
Who is the liar, 
if not one who claims 
    that Jesus is not the Christ? 
This is the Antichrist, 
who denies both the Father and the Son. 
Whoever denies the Son 
    cannot have the Father either; 
whoever acknowledges the Son 
    has the Father too.
Let what you heard in the beginning 
    remain in you; 
as long as 
    what you heard in the beginning 
        remains in you, 
you will remain in the Son 
and in the Father. 
And the promise he made you himself 
is eternal life. 
So much have I written to you 
about those 
    who are trying to lead you astray. 
But as for you, 
    the anointing you received from him 
remains in you, 
and you do not need anyone to teach you; 
since the anointing he gave you 
    teaches you everything, 
and since it is true, not false, 
remain in him just as he has taught you. 
Therefore remain in him now, children, 
so that when he appears 
    we may be fearless, 
and not shrink from him in shame 
at his coming.

1 John Chapter 4

Third condition:
to be on guard against Antichrists
and against the world

My dear friends,
not every spirit is to be trusted,
but test the spirits
   to see whether they are from God,
for many false prophets
   are at large in the world.
This is the proof of the spirit of God:
any spirit
   which acknowledges Jesus Christ,
      come in human nature,
is from God,
and no spirit
   which fails to acknowledge Jesus
is from God;
it is the spirit of Antichrist,
whose coming you have heard of;
he is already at large in the world.
Children, you are from God
and have overcome them,
because he who is in you
is greater than he who is in the world.
They are from the world,
and therefore the world
   inspires what they say,
and listens to them.
We are from God;
whoever recognises God listens to us;
anyone who is not from God
   refuses to listen to us.
This is how we can distinguish
the spirit of truth
   from the spirit of falsehood.


The source of love

My dear friends,
let us love one another,
since love is from God
and everyone who loves
    is a child of God and knows God.
Whoever fails to love does not know God,
because God is love.
This is the revelation
   of God’s love for us,
that God sent his only Son into the world
that we might have life through him.
Love consists in this:
it is not we who loved God,
but God loved us and sent his Son
to expiate our sins.
My dear friends,
if God loved us so much,
we too should love one another.
No one has ever seen God,
but as long as we love one another
God remains in us
and his love comes to its perfection in us.
This is the proof that we remain in him
and he in us,
that he has given us a share in his Spirit.
We ourselves have seen and testify
that the Father sent his Son
as Saviour of the world.
Anyone who acknowledges
    that Jesus is the Son of God,
God remains in him and he in God.
We have recognised for ourselves,
and put our faith in,
    the love God has for us.
God is love,
and whoever remains in love 
    remains in God 
and God in him.

Love comes to its perfection in us
when we can face
   the Day of Judgement fearlessly,
because even in this world
we have become as he is.
In love there is no room for fear,
but perfect love drives out fear,
because fear implies punishment
and no one who is afraid
   has come to perfection in love.
Let us love, then,
because he first loved us.
Anyone who says ‘I love God’
and hates his brother,
is a liar,
since whoever does not love the brother
   whom he can see
cannot love God whom he has not seen.
Indeed this is the commandment
   we have received from him,
that whoever loves God,
   must also love his brother.

1 John Chapter 5

Whoever believes that Jesus is the Christ
is a child of God,
and whoever loves the father
loves the son.
In this way we know
    that we love God's children,
when we love God
    and keep his commandments.
This is what the love of God is:
keeping his commandments.
Nor are his commandments
because every child of God
overcomes the world.
And this is the victory
    that has overcome the world -
our faith.

The source of faith

Who can overcome the world
but the one who believes
    that Jesus is the Son of God?
He it is who came by water and blood,
Jesus Christ,
not with water alone
but with water and blood,
and it is the Spirit that bears witness,
for the Spirit is Truth.
So there are three witnesses,
the Spirit, water and blood;
and the three of them coincide.
If we accept
     the testimony of human witnesses,
God’s testimony is greater,
for this is God’s testimony
which he gave about his Son.
Whoever believes in the Son of God
has this testimony within him,
and whoever does not believe
is making God a liar,
because he has not believed
the testimony
    God has given about his Son.
This is the testimony:
God has given us eternal life,
and this life is in his Son.
Whoever has the Son has life,
and whoever has not the Son of God
    has not life.
I have written this to you
who believe
    in the name of the Son of God
so that you may know
     that you have eternal life.


Prayer for sinners

Our fearlessness towards him
    consists in this,
that if we ask anything
     in accordance with his will
he hears us.
And if we know
     that he listens to whatever we ask him,
we know that we already possess
     whatever we have asked of him.
If anyone sees his brother commit a sin
that is not a deadly sin,
he has only to pray,
    and God will give life to this brother
—provided that it is not a deadly sin.
There is sin that leads to death
and I am not saying
    you must pray about that.
Every kind of wickedness is sin,
but not all sin leads to death.

 Summary of the letter

We are well aware
    that no one who is a child of God sins,
because he who was born from God
    protects him,
and the Evil One has no hold over him.
We are well aware that we are from God,
and the whole world
    is in the power of the Evil One.
We are well aware also
     that the Son of God has come,
and has given us understanding
so that we may know
     the One who is true.
We are in the One who is true
as we are in his Son, Jesus Christ.
He is the true God
and this is eternal life.
Children, be on your guard
    against false gods.

I am truly present, with My Heart on fire for love of you.

Messenger:         This was a cry from Fr. Carter in the last 
                                newsletter written by him.

                            His instructions before his death was that we continue
                                circulating these newsletters in the fashion he
                                described. These were instructions given to him 
                                by Our Lord for the Priestly Newsletter.

                            Here is the message Jesus gave to him.

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."

Messenger:         Here are the words Fr. Carter wrote in his last newsletter.



As you know, we distribute the Newsletter free of charge. We have been publishing the Newsletter for six years. Although the fine print on the last page of each Newsletter says that donations are always welcome, we have, to this date, only made one major appeal for donations.

Now we come to you again and ask for your financial assistance. It is considerably expensive to print the Newsletter and to mail it here in the U.S.A. and to other countries around the world. With our English and Spanish editions, we send the Newsletter to readers in about 90 countries. We soon hope to add a French edition.

With the help of God’s grace, the Newsletter seems to be accomplishing much good. The numerous letters we receive from around the world regarding the Newsletter’s helpfulness are one indication of this.

If you share with us our belief that the Newsletter is a very worthwhile ministry, we urgently ask you to seriously consider sending us a donation. We are always struggling to obtain the funds to continue publication of the Newsletter.

If you are financially able, we would be extremely grateful to receive your donation -- whether it is small, large, or medium-sized! We thank all of you who have previously sent donations.

Some of you may know of possible benefactors who would be interested in helping a worthy cause. And we firmly believe that a ministry which offers an aid for spiritual growth to priests especially, but to others also, is a most worthy endeavor.

For your convenience, we have enclosed a self-addressed donation envelope.

Very importantly, we also ask for your prayers that we may obtain the funds necessary to continue publication of the Newsletter and that the Newsletter will be spiritually beneficial to its readers. We hope to continue to publish it four to six times a year. The number of issues will depend upon various factors. Thank you very much for your attention to our urgent plea.

                                building every day.

                            We received the loan on the building one week 
                                after his funeral the last business day of the
