                            We beg God for forgiveness.

                            We as members of the human race want to
                                beg for mercy and forgiveness for our sins.

                            and this is how we show God we are

                            to the 85,000 priests.

                        We need donations today.

                        We can reach the little ones in schools
                            with the tiny tot books — Mass,
                            rosary etc. and pictures for the
                            class room.

                        I went to West Virginia with someone
                            on business.

                            An area of 5 churches had one
                        priest and no daily Mass.

                        When I went on a similar mission
                            to Utah a couple of years ago —
                            it was the same situation.

                        Jesus has given us this mission to
                            pray for our priests, the Church
                            and the world.

                        Mary appeared for 7 years

Messenger:    This is the last 5th.

                        This picture can be purchased so
                            you can honor Mary as our
                            Lady of Clearwater and tell God
                            we are sorry someone destroyed
                            the image he gave us.

                        The reason Mary appeared on the 5th
                            was because of the 5 blasphemies.


1. Blasphemies against the Immaculate Conception.
2. Blasphemies against Her Perpetual Virginity.
3. Blasphemies against Her Divine Maternity, in refusing at the same time to recognize Her as the Mother of men.
4. The blasphemies of those who publicly seek to sow in the hearts of children indifference or scorn, or even hatred of this Immaculate Mother.
5. The offenses of those who outrage Her directly in Her holy images.

Messenger:         One of these was desecration of
                                her images.

                            How do you think the Father
                                is with this abominable
                                thing done to Mary's head of
                                the image.

                            What a blasphemy.

                            Please help us.

                            The devil does not want the Priestly
                                Newsletter to reach the priests.
                                Jesus said it can affect billions
                                of souls and help in the renewal
                                of the Church and the world.

                            Please help us.

                            Help with the payment on the building.
                            It's bad enough this was done to Mary,
                                don't you think we should maintain
                                this site with Jesus' face as a
                                special place of prayer —

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 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."

Excerpt from November 4, 2001 message

Jesus speaks:  To those who pray My prayers I
                        promise the following special

                                 - A deeper understanding of the 
                                     Divine Mysteries through fervent
                                     recitation of the litanies.

                                 - I promise a deeper love in your heart
                                     for your God and a deeper love
                                     for your fellowmen.

                                 - Those who pray the prayers fervently
                                    will experience a deep union 
                                    in My Heart and My Mother's heart,
                                    they will be given special insights
                                    into My unfathomable love for men
                                    and experience a thirsting within
                                    themselves to want to help souls
                                    through intercessory prayer and sacrifices.

                                 - They will have a deeper love of the Mass
                                    through this deeper consecration.
                                    [consecration to Their Hearts]

                                 - They will know Me more intimately.

                                 - They will want to live their lives to 
                                    help save souls.

                                 - They will have a deeper love for the priests shepherds.
                                 - They will have a deeper love and dedication
                                    to the Church. (I founded)

                                 - They will want peace on the earth.
                                 - They will want peace in their own hearts.

                                 - You will experience a fearlessness the more
                                    you pray the Holy Spirit Novena prayers
                                    given to you.

                                 - As you meditate on the scriptures you will
                                    understand more fully the plan of
                                    the Father to lead the souls into the
                                    great Reign of My Sacred Heart.

                                 - You and all who pray the Holy Spirit Novena
                                    and the Shepherds of Christ Prayers will be
                                    united in a deep oneness with each other
                                    and the souls of the earth.

                                 - The more you pray these prayers (both sets)
                                    you will live in the truth as you
                                    dwell in Our Hearts.

                                  - You will be given gifts of the Holy Spirit.

                                  - You and your family will be protected by
                                    My Precious Blood and your families
                                    will receive special protection
                                    against satan from fervent recitation
                                    of the prayers. (the Holy Spirit Novena
                                    and the Shepherds of Christ Prayers)

                                 - I promise to take you and the members of
                                    your family in a special way
                                    into My Sacred Heart. I will lavish
                                    you in the fires of My love.

                                 - The priests and the people of the Church and the world
                                    will receive special graces from the fervent
                                    recitation of these prayers. (both sets)

                                 - I will unite My people in a deeper love
                                    from the graces granted from
                                    fervent recitation of these prayers.

                                 - I give these prayers from My image site
                                    in Florida.
                                   I appear there daily as the Sacred Heart.
                                   Some see Me, some do not, but there
                                    is a special presence there.
                                   My Mother appears there for her children.

                                 - In the five years of her apparitions many
                                    souls who have come have been
                                    given special graces of conversion.
                                    Many have been given grace to lead
                                    them into a deeper love union with
                                    God and the Blessed Virgin.

                                 - The image site in Florida has touched
                                    the world.

                                 - I outpour great grace to those who come
                                    to the site.

                                 - There are tremendous graces of healing
                                    granted to all who come.

                                 - People who come rarely leave unchanged.
                                 - The grace granted works in their lives and in
                                    their hearts, long after they have gone.

                                 - A reminder of their visit only need be given
                                    and they experience a memory of
                                    that moment.

                                I ask you to circulate the prayers I have
                                    given, the Shepherds of Christ Prayers 
                                    and the Holy Spirit Novena prayers.
