                    Pray to not be put to the test.

                    When the sacrifice has been very much

                and I am weary it is then I do not need to focus

                on myself, but to focus on the gift of self

                united to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass I attend.

                I am so deeply one laying down my life united

                to the sacrifice of Jesus and I want my sacrifice

                to be united to the sacrifice of Jesus at the

                Mass, a most pleasing sacrifice.

                    I may be tattered and torn from trying to

                serve Him so deeply then I don't go to Mass

                and listen to satan say "you are tattered and

                torn" — I am one with Jesus in my deepest

                way — I know Him in the sacrifices I

                have made — so very one in my soul and

                my offering, my self-less surrender is

                all these gifts of myself deeply united to Him.

                    Last night I was under the cross at Clearwater

                for the 5th — I deeply knew His bitter sacrifice



                as I prayed the rosary — His left eye on the cross

                was so flooded with tears — His right eye seemed

                non-existent, His left eye was wide, so wide open

                and covered with tears — then they began to come

                down His face on the left side and went into

                His mouth.

                    His mouth was open and moving not

                wide like when I saw it December 5, 1996 —

                12 days before Mary appeared in Clearwater —

                Here are some of the messages I got —


                As I stood later and faced the crowd I had

                once again as last month and once before

                when I had a strong rosary — Jesus who

                stood by me.

                    When someone is in your space you may

                want strongly to move away, but Jesus comes
                as I speak and He is there — so it is so strong —

                at one point I swept the air with my right

                arm, but His presence was as one touching the

                right shoulder as I spoke —

                    He is what I said —

                Then it was as though I was wrapped in

                    the presence of God 5 or so inches

                    front and back.

                    It deeply was as though I knew how

                it would be a little wrapped in the embrace

                of God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. I spoke thus

                of the beatific vision — such rapture to be

                existent in God — to live in loving oneness

                as we will in heaven — caught in loves

                embrace of Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Words do

                not exist to explain this and in realizing it.

                I am given such a realization of the despair

                of hell, the loss of one soul for all eternity —

                the empty pit of endless existence without

                God —

                    I scream in my soul, shuttering to know

                the reality of a single soul being lost to the

                fires of hell for all eternity.

                    At Fatima Mary showed the children a

                vision of hell


90 Years Ago


Excerpt from The Spirituality of Fatima

by Father Carter, S.J.   

July 13, 1917

    "During this same July apparition, Mary showed the three children a vision of Hell. She told them:

    "You have seen Hell, where the souls of poor sinners go. To save them, God wishes to establish, in the world, devotion to my Immaculate Heart. If people do what I tell you, many souls will be saved and there will be peace.

    "The war (World War I, then raging) is going to end. But if people do not stop offending God, another and worse one will begin in the reign of Pius XI. When you shall see a night illuminated by an unknown light [January 2, 1938], know that this is the great sign that God gives you that He is going to punish the world for its many crimes by means of war, hunger, and persecution of the Church and the Holy Father. (12)

    "To prevent this, I shall come to ask for the consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart and the Communion of Reparation on the five first Saturdays. If my requests are granted, Russia will be converted and there will be peace. If not, she will scatter her errors throughout the world, provoking wars and persecutions of the Church. The good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer, and various nations will be destroyed....

    "But in the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph, the Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, Russia will be converted, and a certain period of peace will be granted to the world." (13)


11. For background material on Fatima, I am particularly indebted to 
    Our Lady of Fatima's Peace Plan from Heaven
(Rockford: TAN 
    Books and Publishers, Inc., 1983). pp.3-4.
12. Ibid., pp.4-5.
13. Ibid., p.5.


                    but the reality of this to me after
                all the visits of Mary, after the experience
                last night, I cannot even write, but I
                know deeply as the children knew from the
                vision of Fatima.

                    From one end of - embrace - endless
                splendor of rapture of the Trinity existent
                in God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit to the endless
                pit of total isolation, screaming despair
                of souls without God for all eternity.

6:20 Prayer Service




The Agony in the Garden

R. And His sweat became as great drops of blood upon the ground for He saw before Him despite all of His suffering and His love the many, many souls that would be lost. Jesus loves the souls so deeply that He gave Himself on the cross. Can you imagine the anguish of the Son of God to love so perfectly and to know that after all He did that the souls would still be lost to the fires of hell. Dear God we pray with all of our hearts that You will please help us in this mission of reaching the priests, the Church and the world with the consecration to Your Heart and the heart of our Mother.

It looks like Jesus is crying on the cross.

Oh beloved Savior how good indeed You are to us to give us Mary our Mother, to give us the priests and the Church. How wonderful indeed it is to be able to receive the Son of God in the Eucharist, to go and to be with Him before the tabernacle. God open the eyes of the people of this earth that they will recognize the great gifts that they are given, that they will realize that this is why they were created with this longing, that can only be filled by You, our beloved God, hear my prayer, hear our prayer, outpour Your grace and Your mercy and please help us to do this. I pray to You from this tremendous place in Clearwater, Florida. I love You dear God with all my heart and soul. We love You dear God. Amen.

R. Thank You God, Thank You.

2. Hail Mary

3. Hail Mary

4. R. The Good Shepherd knows His sheep and they follow Him. They will not follow a hired man. They follow the Good Shepherd and He leads them home. Thank You dear God for the Newsletter Shepherds of Christ to lead the priests more and more into deeper intimacy with God. Thank You for this great gift that You have given to us in this place here in Florida, for the waters and for the precious glass of the image. Thank you for all the blessings that all of us have received because of the Shepherds of Christ in this center and the China Center. Thank You dear God we love You. Amen.

5. R. And we pray that the whole world is consecrated to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary and that all the Churches and the Catholic Church are consecrated to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, and all the families and all the schools are consecrated to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, that the Sacred Heart of Jesus will reign in the hearts of the people of this earth and that the Immaculate Heart of Mary will triumph, that we will be able to spread the newsletter as we are attempting every other month with great fervor and ease, to help spread this consecration that Mary asked for at Fatima.

Dear God please help us. We love You and we want with all our hearts to do this mission. Look not upon our weariness and our imperfections in trying to serve You but look upon the fervor of our hearts, the love that we have for You and for the souls and the priests and the Church and the world and reward us according to this God. For it is for Thy will that we seek to serve Thee in love.

Dear God we lay down our lives for You in doing the will of God in our families, in our work and in everything that we do, realizing that it is an offering. It is an offering to be a father and a mother - it is an offering to go to work and to provide for your family - it is an offering to be loving to one another - it is an offering to God when we forgive. Our lives are a sacrifice - an offering is a sacrifice, that's what a sacrifice is. We unite our lives to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass going on around the world, the sacrifice of Calvary sacramentally made present.

Dear Father as we unite our lives as we lay down our simple little offerings, just doing our mundane task every day united to the sacrifice of Jesus in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, we ask You Father to accept our offering as a most pleasing sacrifice and to help us to serve You more fully in our mission, our vocation in the Shepherds of Christ and to have those things that we need in order to do these things for You - keeping this building, 24 hour adoration in China, sending the newsletter as we now do to 80,000 priests, and the hierarchy and the books of Fr. Pasquini. We ask You, God for we say yes, yes, yes - for we love the souls and we love the priests and we love the Church. Help us God. Amen.

6. Hail Mary

7. Hail Mary

8. Hail Mary

9. Hail Mary

10. R. And we pray for all of our donors here this night and we pray for all the people that are members of the Shepherds of Christ Movement. We pray for all the priests and the bishops and the cardinals that have received the newsletter that they will respond in a tremendous way of growing in greater holiness in uniting their hearts in oneness with us in making Jesus, the Sacred Heart of Jesus, the King and Center of their lives. This is a message of hope and we love You. Amen.





Jesus is Scourged at the Pillar

R. And they tied Him to the Pillar and their whips came down and tore His back, His precious flesh and He stood there and He was wounded over and over and over again. And yet we were wounded, many times in our lives but we try to cover it up rather than trying to ask God to help us heal that we can be much more mighty soldiers in His army, that we can be strong and empowered and pure as the Virgin Mary, more likened to Christ. Dear God in this rosary we pray, dear Holy Spirit we pray that You will fill us with wisdom to see those things in our lives that we need to change to be more holy, to help us to be greater as soldiers in Your army to spread the devotion to the Sacred Heart and to spread the devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary in this world.

1. Song:  Come with Me into the Fields

2. R. Dear God Mary is full of grace. She is sinless and we are sinners but we beg You tonight that You fill us more abundantly with Your grace. We beg that we may be more filled with Your life in us. What a gift!

3. Hail Mary

4. Hail Mary

Jesus is Crowned with a Crown of Thorns

1. Hail Mary

2. Hail Mary

3. R. And when we want to serve Him, many times, we may almost feel as if there is a pressure pressing down because of a weight that we carry. But how can we say no to Jesus when we look at Him as we see Him here on the cross and see the crown of thorns that pressed into His precious head. And He said "yes", and He said "yes" to the wounds, and He said "yes" to the suffering and He said "yes" as He fell under the cross and He said "yes" when He looked into the eyes of His Mother. And He said "yes" when they pounded the nails into His hands and His feet and He said "yes". He said "yes I will go, I will go, I will go for you because I love you My precious soul."

Jesus: How is it that you can not see how you are to love one another but you hold onto your anger and your unforgiveness and I show you Myself on the cross with the thorns in My head and the wounds in My body and you know that I died a bloody death for you and yet you hold onto little incidental things. You want to punish one another, you don't want to forgive. You are the teachers of one another and when you hold onto anger, when you teach each other, your children about your unforgiving ways that can go on for generation to generation and children are wounded because of your pride and selfishness. I ask you to take My cross and to hold it in to your hands and to look at the love that I have given to you and that I remain with you today. Can you say no to Me when I ask you to love the unloving, to show them what it is, really show them what it is, to have gentleness and kindness of heart. You talk about yourself as Catholics and Christians and all the things and yet how unChrist-like many of you are. Look at My face and the crown on My head. I suffered for the sins of pride and anger proving that you are right making that your god, making others suffer. I suffered. I suffered the wounds to My body, the pains to My Heart, the piercing agony of knowing the souls despite My suffering would go to hell and you can not even forgive. Do you call yourself Christians? When I send somebody in your path today to show them what it is to love and what do you do. You stiffen up your back and you say "you aren't going to treat me like that." Is that what it means? Is that what I showed you being Christ-like is, when I hung on the cross for 3 agonizing hours and I loved you to My death on the cross. I paid the price for your sin and you treat one another with such anger and lack of respect, unforgiveness.

You are in this world such a short time and you are the teachers of those that you come in contact with, the teachers of My love, the teachers of what it is to be united and how many times you say "no", when you give into division, sometimes for days and weeks and months and you let your children see your hardened hearts. You are the teachers of the Christ that lives in you. Be gentle in your heart as I am gentle, be people of love and forgiveness, pray for the hardened hearts. I am not telling you to be abused by people and to stand this. I am telling you to not respond with a heart that is tainted. Go away to your room and close the door, get on your knees and say "God help them", for I love them but they need to be healed. Open your Blue Book and help yourself to be kind and loving and tender in heart.

Oh precious one, you are so precious to Me that I withstood the bitter death of the cross as I hung there for 3 hours. I could have stopped it all. I am God. But for you dear heart, for you I said yes, yes to the bitter torture, yes to the anxiety and the waiting for 3 hours as the blood drained from Me, yes to the last beat of My Heart. Can you not love the unloving this way and pray for them? Pray for the world, for many today will lose their souls and when you were selfish and you thought about yourself you could have been teaching a mighty lesson that I wanted them to know. Oh hardened of hearts, pray that your hearts will be made soft and supple for in this lies your joy.



4. R. And He carried that heavy cross on His back and He fell under the weight of the cross and His chin hit the ground and they came up to Him and they poked Him. And we think about how people provoke us - what about how they poked at Jesus' already battered, torn body. They poked and they poked and He bled and He said yes, yes, yes. And today He calls us to pray for the priests, the Church and the world and many of us say "no, no, no, no, no I got too much to do God" — eating a box of bon-bons, watching 3 hours of television —

Jesus: Can you not wait one hour with Me. Wait and pray that you will not be put to the test, for so many souls today will be lost to the fires of hell. Oh precious child, I have called you by name, I have outpoured My grace to you. I have given you My special love in the Eucharist. Can you not love My souls for Me? For you are My hands and My feet, you I have called to the Shepherds of Christ to reach the priests, the Church and the world. You I have called to pray as never before for your priests and the Church and the world. You I have called to spread the Morning Offering, to say it yourself, to go to daily Mass, to not be afraid in the world to tell someone that is suffering, "Oh you don't really know my friend how deeply God loves you, the very hairs of your head are numbered. Can you say to the soul that is suffering?" When one wants to commit suicide, many times they are doing it as a cry for help because the pain inside is so great they just don't know what to do.

R. And we may approach it with a wrong method but our prayers are so powerful, being one in Him, growing in greater holiness, going to the Mass, uniting to the Masses around the world, loving deeply.

Jesus: Do not ever under estimate the power of a heartfelt prayer. For they were tattered and torn hanging over and afraid and your prayer reached the heavens and I sent grace like an overnight fed-ex and it penetrated their heart and they were turned for My grace is so powerful. My grace can change a weary heart instantly. Do not be prideful and think that you can do many things in changing one's heart. It is very hard and stubborn. Come to Me and pour out your heart and beg for grace and I will hear you and answer you. But I have called you too to a mission of touching the hardened hearts today by your lives of love, by your example given. You are indeed so precious to Me so much that they pounded a crown of thorns into My head and as they did it My thoughts were of you and how much you love Me now today.

5. R. To me it looked like Jesus was really crying out of that eye on that side. And then it looked like His mouth was moving like when I saw it like 12 days before Mary appeared here in Clearwater after Mary appeared every 5th for 2 1/2 years. I went there December the 5th of 1996 and I was in back of Holy Cross-Immaculata. Mary always appeared in that Lourdes Grotto there and I was praying my rosary and I prayed and prayed and she never appeared. And there before my eyes Jesus appeared on the cross, His body the size of a man so pained in suffering that I could hardly stand to look at Him and I cried in horror I could hardly stand it. And His mouth was open and I didn't know how a man in such agony and pain could be moving His jaw like it was moving but it kept moving like that. And then that night December 5th of 1996 after Mary appeared 2 1/2 years on the 5th, Jesus appeared that afternoon on the 5th when Mary usually appeared. And I went to do the 5th prayer service because I've been doing these 5th prayer services on the 5th all the way since July 5th of 1994, publicly since April 5th of 1995. So I went to do the 5th prayer service and there was a whole house full of people in my house in the basement. And Jesus said that His mouth was moving because nobody was listening. 12 days later Mary appeared here on the building in Clearwater after Jesus appeared on the cross with His mouth moving.

As I sat there under the crucifix during this rosary the tears were coming down this side of His face, all the way down to here and His mouth was moving. Now what do you think? The Son of God came to this earth and He took flesh. God became man because of His great love for us. And in the garden He sweat blood because of the souls that would be lost. And if I could say that Mary appeared to me for the 13 years and she has, at different times, and the 7 1/2 years when I did all the 5ths here on the building, etched in the depth of my soul is the realization of how awful it is that one soul would be lost that I can't hardly even stand it.

What would the Mother of God say to you if she appeared today after she appeared to me every day for 14 months — reach those school children Rita, get those rosaries out there — and I use to go to Holy Cross-Immaculata where Jesus finally appeared on the cross December 5, 1996 and I would hang over the pew in tears saying — "Mary, what am I suppose to do to get these rosaries in the school kid's hands, you can give all the messages you want but I can't do it." Those books are still in there, those messages are still in there and all these years later we get about 200,000 rosaries in the schools a year. But you know what else is so sad, I don't understand this. But people have sent their rosaries to P.O. Box 193 for 10 years like 3rd class. I just hope that their rosaries didn't get thrown away. I know this that the devil is going to work to try to block communication with the Shepherds of Christ but it's not by that any way. If God wants to send a million dollar donor so that I can fix up some of the building or the toilets or whatever the heck it is - He is going to end up doing it. But you need to pray for that too.

Do you want this building here as a place of prayer? Then it's part of your life to pray for that, to pray for the donors that will come to help us. So that like last month John had to put it on his credit card. And that doesn't go on every month, but when we are putting out a newsletter that costs us 60 - 75 thousand dollars - it's expensive every other month. And I'm not asking you in your position to give more money than you have. I'm asking you to realize that you are part of this family and to pray with us.

Because we are reaching the world with the Fatima message as it goes from the bishops to the priests which is what Mary asked for at Fatima and Jesus asked Fr. Carter at the end of the century. And now 13 years later we are doing it with great ease. But the money ends up being a major thing and some how it keeps coming. But your prayers would make a big difference if you say I am a member of the Shepherds of Christ family, I can see that the newsletter spreading the consecration to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary is going out there to every hierarchy and we got a book of writings this high from cardinals, archbishops and bishops in less than 10 months. The successors of the apostles are thanking us saying please continue this.

We are part of this magnificent thing that's helping to renew the Church and the world as Jesus asked Fr. Carter July 31, 1994. He reiterated the purpose of that Priestly Newsletter, the message that He gave him May 31, 1994 that through the Priestly Newsletter and the prayer chapters He would help to renew the Church and the world and this has happened. 90 letters from the Vatican in 10 months, cardinals and bishops, the Virgin Mary appearing here on the building, Jesus' face, the fact that we have had it for 9 years. What does this mean to you? That you do have one of those statues with a little piece of glass and you get in front of it and you pray the prayers. In those prayers we pray for the priests, the Church and the world. We pray for holy priests. We give great love to Mary in the Litany. We give great love to the Sacred Heart in the Litany. We renew in our minds the promises that Jesus made to Margaret Mary and how tremendous they are for those who are dedicated to the Sacred Heart.

This happened to me last month. It was so awesome I just like couldn't stand it. But I'm standing here and it's the presence of God beside Me and there is no one but He's there because I feel Him and I know it. He stood next to me last month for a while as I did the rosary and as the weeks went by — He's right there right now — as the weeks went by when it was difficult, which it is, I remembered how awesome that was to know that Jesus was right there with me as I did this rosary last month.

Jesus: Oh beloved of My Father how dear you are, how precious that I gave My life for you. Do you know how it is that one soul could be lost for all eternity. Do not give in to your selfish ways but walk in the ways of love. Say yes to this mission. Know that you are the branches connect to the vine that can reach all over the world, to the priests that can help to strengthen them through this instrument of prayer and love and truth, that I have directed this young priest to give as a gift from Me. Oh precious child, when the days are done you will come to Me and you will know that many souls were touched by the little effort that you gave and it will give you the great joy. And I will say to you "Blessed of My Father enter into My Kingdom for when I was hungry (and that can be spiritual hunger) you gave me to eat, when I was thirsty you gave me water to drink. Water from the wells, grace outpouring more and more through the Eucharist. When my heart was hardened you prayed for me and I knew more the gifts of the Savior."

The time is now - the moments of your lives are so precious. I have called you by name. Will you answer Me? Will you pray as I asked? Will you know that your life lived according to the Father's will united to the Mass and growing in greater holiness yourself can help change the world — but you will know a peace and a love and a joy that will make you happy for your quest for happiness is in Me. For it is for this you were created. And why did Mary appear all these times to My visionary but to tell you here this night 13 years later that souls are dropping into hell like rain. You have been given a great gift to know Me and to know My love. Now I ask you - will you let go and let Me led you in the ways of a holy life. Let your life be an offering in all that you do, living in truth and justice and kindness, putting aside the rat racing of the world, listening to less of the television that can blind you and to really living by the commandments and the Word. Will you say yes to holiness? Will you see the vision of the Father so when you enter He will say "Oh blessed of My Father I was hungry and you gave Me to eat were the words of truth and the grace that filled your heart with joy." Amen



6. R. To feel the presence of God, to know His embrace, to see Him before me, to see the light, to be wrapped in His arms — this is only a tasting of the beatific vision. But my people this is reality because for all eternity this is how we will be wrapped in the embrace of the Divine God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We will not take our gold and our cars and our boats and our kissy wissy poos and all the other kind of things that the world might think is so cute, the sexual pleasures whatever - who knows — it will be the pleasure of being wrapped in the beatific vision of knowing God. This is the plan of the Father. You have heard this from me as a messenger from God. Reach no longer into the cookie jar of the world's pleasures but into that vat of the Heart of Jesus wherein lies truth and love and say, Alleluia Praise the Lord. He has touched my heart. He has given me a gift and I know Him and I will never walk without Him this close to me again.

7. Hail Mary

8. R. And He stands at the door of our hearts and He knocks ever so gently —

Jesus: Oh My precious soul would you not open to Me for I come to bring you a vat of the love of My Sacred Heart and when I speak to you you do not listen. And I give you Myself in the Eucharist - such love.

R. Such a treasure. But the more that you hear the words that I speak to you tonight the more that you too will spread the Blue Book to a hurting soul that is searching and longing for the love that only God can fill. And I open the Blue Book and one sentence says "Oh I love you so much come to Me I am truly present in the Eucharist and I am waiting for you." And with that He can give such a grace to change your life, because I'm sorry, I just cannot even describe my thirsting for God truly present in the Eucharist. There are not words and its only a little bit compared to the great gifts of heaven. And then you think about it why Mary appeared to me for 13 years. You think about the souls that are going to go to hell for all eternity. One precious soul is one too many that will be in isolation and hatred and all the junk that you can imagine that would be so ugly.

These movies — I mean sometimes I have to sit down and watch something with my husband and gosh - they are just so ugly. I mean who the heck even thought this ugly stuff up. Gees. I don't know. But it makes me want to cry, literally, because she did appear for 13 years and I don't care who believes it or doesn't believe it. And etched in the depth of my soul and every cell in my being is the realization of a soul going to hell and I just can't stand it. You can't stand it when the Mother of God is telling you how our children are going to hell. Such a small price God asked of us and it is the very thing that brings us our joy and happiness. But I love the souls so much, I love the souls I guess because of all these experiences. But I love the souls and the priests and the Church from praying these prayers for 13 years. The prayers of the Shepherds of Christ has transformed my heart, the grace of the Eucharist. This is reality. I don't know what's on some of those movies and stuff that's out there. But the reality is for all eternity is for eternity we can be in this rapturous embrace of Divine love and Mary told me for 13 years how souls are going to hell like rain and I can't stand it. She showed those children a vision of hell at Fatima on July 13, 1917 but I know no less than that about the souls going to hell and that's the message that I deliver from this place where God the Father allowed Mary's image to appear.

But I also know just a touch of the rapture of that heavenly embrace for all eternity and I want to shout it from the rooftop and go to the high hill and I want it that way that the souls will know that this is what they were created for and that Jesus loved them so much that He died, really gave Himself for each one of us to His death on the cross. And then He rose that we could have this presence of God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit within our graced soul when we are baptized and in the state of grace. I just can't help it. I mean I can't even say what I know and it just — the Shepherds of Christ is a gift that God has given to this earth 13 years ago - the prayers, the Blue Books, the grace that's given where we were once blind - now we see. The unity that really is here in joy and love because of us praying these prayers and consecrating our hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary is a special family and God's army - living just our lives according to God's will being moms and dads and going to work and whatever else, but being holy. God isn't asking us to go out and build some big building and then see if we can walk a tight rope.

R. And I don't mean just me and John - everybody that's a servant and a handmaid, a live-in apostle - they're just as committed because He has made us say yes over and over and over again. Right? Everyone of these people are vital or this doesn't work. The prayers that one individual says all the time - that 24 hour adoration, the answering the phone, the getting the mail, the running the Florida site, the 6:20 prayers that somebody else does, Joe Lee doing all this mailing — God called them and without each one of them, it's like we can't do it so we all got to get along. Right? We got to pray harder, we got to read our books more, we got to forgive each other, we got to love each other — and in that family that God has created is the core in the Shepherds of Christ. God has invited you to be part of that - through your prayers - through the strength of the Daily Message that I write that's out there every day as we struggle through our imperfections and trying to be united and I write on the internet every day now for 9 years. Do you know what that is like to put out a daily message every day for 9 years? Every day for 9 years I put a daily message out there, there might have been a few days they weren't out there.

And it's a gift from God because it keeps us growing more and more in understanding how satan is trying to take us out and the greatness of what it is to know that beatific vision and how it's going to be for all eternity. I pretty much have written every day I'd say since 1993 when I wrote the first Blue Book. So then I wrote the Mass Books, then I wrote the 13ths before Mary appeared down here and the Apostle' Manual. And while we're doing all this then we're spreading all these rosaries and consecrations to all the schools. So we had the Nursing Home Program out here, we are spreading the consecration trying to get them to do the Morning Offering so that if they just offer up their eating their meals and sitting around whatever they were doing, if they just offer it up and unite it to the Mass we can get a lot of grace from the person offering up what they're doing. (United to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass)

We could get the school kids offering up what they are doing united to the Mass that can give us a lot of grace. But think of this - this is what's really been hard, I'm mean it's really hard - I know we got out 55,000 of that mailing, right? We got out all the US priests, the pope, the cardinals, the archbishops, the bishops and then we got stuff on the auxiliary bishops, right? Oh we got some of that out? Canada, Mexico and US. And then after that - then we didn't get the rest of it out. But then I get some of the e-mails back and then it's like a bishop will say, well you know, I want 300 prayer manuals for all my priests and he's in India. So then you're going to have 300 priests that are getting the prayer manuals that are probably going to want more so they can spread it to the people. And this is what Mary said she wanted at Fatima.

Or Glaci will get some priest that wants like 500 prayer manuals but we get a lot from the bishops and then we send them 500 prayer manuals and they are giving them to their priests. And there's tons of priests that are over there in Kenya and India - if they don't want to pray the prayers over in the US that's okay with me - if they're praying the prayers over there we got - Mary said at Fatima "till a sufficient number of people have consecrated their hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary we won't have peace in the world." So I said to Fr. Carter "what's that mean?" He said "50%", that's what he thought. So and then he said that Sacred Heart of Jesus will reign and the Immaculate Heart of Mary will triumph - that's the vision that he has given to me all the time, that's the vision that I have had. So it's a vision of hope. It's a vision that Fatima will come to fruition and the Shepherds of Christ is major in helping to do that.

So then Jesus got me over there to that young priest and that was January a year ago. And he had written a bunch of books, but boy he sounded just like Fr. Carter. And I just went up to him and out of my mouth comes like I'm talking to you now, when Jesus talks through my mouth — I said to myself, I was sitting in a pew and I said well He sent me here cause He wants to ask this priest to write the newsletter — I'm really shy — I know you don't think I'm shy - but I'm really shy — If I go into a church I'll hide behind a pole — and everything I do is hard. Somebody else might be aggressive but I'll kind of stay in the back of church and then hope I don't have to go up there — I do this by the grace of God. So I'm sitting there in the pew and I'm saying to myself - I know God is going to want this priest to write the newsletter - and I'm saying - huh - I wonder how that's going to happen - because I ain't asking him — that's what I'm thinking — I always do this - when He tells me to do something I always say to myself - I just can't do that — and then since I really know it's a message I always end up doing it anyway.

So I go up to the center of the communion rail where this priest was after he had given a bible study and I went up there and out of my mouth - like when I was talking up there before — comes a message from Jesus - "I want you to write the newsletter" - and I'm thinking - hump - that's how He was going to ask him. It had nothing to do with me. Right? Oh gosh! So then the priest is really close to God. He must have known something cause he looks up like this and then his eyes come down and then he says "maybe on the Eucharist." And I thought "oh boy." So that's how it was for the beginning of the newsletter, most of the newsletter was like that, I started giving him the daily writings - he really knew what he was suppose to do. But Fr. Carter knew what he was suppose to do. Why wouldn't God give this same kind of thing to a priest and then I read his Light, Happiness and Peace book.

The first time Jesus sent me to see him, January 23,. He told me to call him. So he didn't know me from Adam, I didn't know him from Adam. I call him up and I say "Hi I'm Rita Ring and I want to talk to you." That took so much nerve. I was in my bedroom and I thought "man am I really going to do this." But I did it anyway. So then he got on the other end of the phone and he said "well you know I'm not the pastor." And I thought "well I don't care who you are", He just told me to call you this is hard enough. I don't know you and you don't know me. So then he says "Well come tomorrow at 1:00." I had everybody pray cause we're like prayer machines. So everybody prays all the time. Right? That's how we get —
So naturally the fax goes around. Pray, Rita's got this meeting with the priest tomorrow at 1:00 and then there's about 3 trillion billion prayers that are going out until I get in there at 1:00. So I had all that behind me.

And then I go in there - I started talking to him and I guess our Lord was talking through me. When I'm not looking at somebody, Our Lord is talking through me to this person. And so, so I was kind of talking like I do when God is talking to me, cause I can't look at somebody and hear what Jesus is saying and coming out of my mouth. I'm not like I'm talking to you. I'm being used to give this conversation here. So I was up here talking to this priest, not looking at him, and then I'd come down after I was in there about an hour - say "do you want to hear this or you want me to leave." And it kind of reminded me of Fr. Carter because he was the only one that would keep listening to me. No other priest had nothing to do with me. You go say you have messages from God - but the only person that was right in 1994 was Fr. Carter, Fr. Carter started to discern the first Blue Book in March 1994.

So God kind of had that set up - just like this building here - nobody else even went after this building did they — it was really strange — and He's kept us in here for 9 years but He also said if we ever let go of the building He would shake the earth cause He wants this place to be here for people to pray. So other people say to me "Why don't you do something from the building?" you can make some money that way and I say that's not how I am being directed. He wants this place as a place of prayer. I mean the Virgin Mother of God's image was on here for 7 and 1/2 years - don't you think that out of all the places on the face of the earth - do you know this never happened any place else ever - that God would want this for a place of prayer. And then it goes back to the old thing - would you do it for 2 or would you do it for 10 or would you do it for 20.

I mean there's been days like last June when people were all gone and Rosie was down here by herself. And I still remember being in China doing some retreat or something screaming - there's one person down at the Virgin Mary Building - what's wrong with everybody — in it all, God gave us the loan again — and it impinging upon the fact of how we handled it when the image window was broken. The bank was real impressed how Christian we were about it. So Jesus told me don't press charges and we didn't do nothing. Rosie would tell them when they came - they'd say "what's what." Rosie would say "We're just praying for the youth." Before that she would say "We've just praying for who ever did it, we are just praying for them." So we just left it go at that. Then finally when they did arrest somebody Jesus had given me a message a couple days before to get Rosie up there. Rosie was the only one talking to the reporters cause we really have to watch what we say.

We send a newsletter goes to 80,000 priests so we're always trying to have everything absolutely in the truth and pure. And everything is discerned by priests. So two days before they arrested the youth, Jesus gives me a message to get Rosie to go up to Cincinnati and she's the only one that was given authority to to talk to reporters. I don't know her cell phone wasn't working or something. So they kept trying to get answers out of Rosie but she was up in Cincinnati. And so therefore we were left out of the whole thing. So it kind of like protected us. You know we weren't in the papers, we weren't in nothing.

 But then John goes to get the loan when that expired and the banker was so impressed about what we do here and how we handle that and he wrote like a psalm back to John that said I really want to help you because you people really live up to what you are trying to do over there. And so we did get the loan. It is a month by month thing but we all have that faith that God really wants this. It's not that I have it more than Joe or Sheila or anybody else. We all believe that God really wants this place as a place of prayer and people that aren't even here that have that image wallet but have been here know that it is here. They know that the image did appear here and it gives them strength. Doesn't it give you strength whether you are here or not to know that Mary's image appeared here and that we are still here praying even thou some nights there might be three of us saying the Shepherds of Christ prayers but we're here. If you are any where around come on over cause we need that prayer. Look at all the people on the face of the earth and Mary's image was here for 7 and 1/2 years and I mean these 5ths I was told to do publicly in April 1995.

So now it is 2007 so that was over 12 years ago, I've been doing these 5ths every month. And after I was told to do the 5th then Mary appeared like she did here in all those colors and stuff turning gold and all this other kind of stuff. But God has chosen all of us because He knows in our hearts we're committed deeply to Him and it's our prayers that weighed heavy when we love God. One person that's really close to God can help to bring down a ton of grace. So this is really a gift, I'm really grateful that God has kept us here for 9 years, but again I'll deliver the same message that I have been delivering to you all night. God has called you here to be part of the Shepherds of Christ family and in being so, it's your morning offering when you say and I pray for those poor people down there at the Virgin Mary Building, no, I pray for those people down there in the Shepherds of Christ that are trying to really reach the whole world.

I remember getting the messages at the seminary when I first started getting those rosaries that are in the Red Rosary Book. And I would sit there and the lights would be out and Fr. Carter would be there and the Core Shepherds of Christ would be there in 1994 and I would get these messages from God. I hadn't gone out of this old seminary, but the Virgin Mother of God is appearing to me and I am getting this message that you will be my apostles to go out to the world. I never even though about it, I mean I'm sitting on a chair in one building and the messages they're publishing are messages from the Mother of God and Jesus that are saying that we are going to be the apostles of the Sacred Heart and go out to the world and spread this devotion to the Sacred Heart all over the world and I hadn't left my chair in the Holy Spirit Center. I mean that's really "gutsy" if you start thinking about it but Mary was appearing to me so I just didn't doubt it.

But here it is 12 years later and we are all over with 90 letters from the Vatican and the prophesy has come true. But it hasn't come true because we've done it - like somebody can come and say "why don't you do this, why don't you do that? Let's have this idea going." I don't do that. We do what the mission is, we don't come up with good ideas. We basically stick pretty much to spreading the prayer chapters, doing the newsletter, trying to sell all we can in the store. We do have an internet store. There's only so much of us, so I guess we're getting done what God wants when we send a half million newsletters in 11 months and 65,000 books to all the hierarchy several times.

But God wants you to feel united as members of the body of Christ as Associates or Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart, doing your Morning Offering and uniting your life up in the Morning Offering praying with us. I mean that's a big thing.

Jesus Carries the Cross

1. Song: Jesus the Light of the World

2. Jesus: Now would you choose lightness or darkness? I give you this choice: there are two rooms and the one is brightly lit, filled with the most elegant colors, and there is joy and soft music and love and then there is the other room - desolate and dark - you hear the screaming of souls in agony. What would you choose? For I have given to all of you the gift of My life outpoured in the sacraments and I want you with Me forever in heaven. I call to you come to Me. So many souls today are blinded by the pleasures of the earth and they do not even know for they become more and more blind as they give in to satan who is leading them more and more down a dark path of a lonely road to their own destruction. Two rooms - one of great grandeur and the other - desolate - screaming - a stench —

What do you want for your life, for your family, for the souls that you have prayed for. Mary is the Mother of all of her children and she has cried to you from this place in Florida of how many of her children are dropping into hell like rain every day but this is a message of hope to you from your Savior. Come to the light My little one and give Me your heart and I will outpour My grace, take you in to My Heart of light and warmth and you will be a light alive in this world that is troubled. Many that walk down a dark path and they will see My love in you and they will come to know more of My ways. Your life is lived that you will be this ember shining brightly in a world that is being pressed on and led astray by satan. Do you say no of being that flame of light from My Heart to the troubled world. Do you hold on to those things of being stubborn and angry and prideful and what do you accomplish when you argue with somebody for days about being right - when in fact you are not nice at all. Pray that you will not be put to the test and use the letters of love that I have given to you in the Blue Book. For as you open My letters you will be in touch with the reality, the plan of the Father, the gifts given, the vision that you must embrace to be My light in this world. I love you. I love you. I love you.

R. I am meditating on the Carrying of the Cross

3. Song:  Come unto Me all Who are Weary

R. And He has given to us the Virgin Mary, sinless - she is not jealous or prideful. She is a model that we know that when we are acting with others, someone that is upset and we love them and they begin to act angry or in adverse ways that when we come back acting taintedly with anger there is this wall and satan can block the work that God wants accomplished.

Jesus: Let My Mother's life be a life that you can model yours after. For she struggled and she suffered but she was not jealous or angry or prideful. She was pure and you too can grow in greater purity as you give your heart to her heart — as you dwell in My Heart the poor banished children of Eve will know greater purity as they consecrate their lives to the Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart. Mary appeared at Fatima to tell the poor banished children of Eve of the importance of the devotion to My Heart and her heart. Today 90 years later I have asked you to be a leading force in this world spreading this devotion to children and to priests, the elderly and to all the people of the earth and in consecrating their lives to My Heart and to Mary's heart - they will live lives of greater purity. This is the message of the Lady of Fatima. This is the message of the Shepherds of Christ - ask to help bring this to completion today. Do not be afraid but empowered for I have spoken to you and I have called you each by name.

4. Hail Mary

5. Hail Mary

6. R. And He fell under the weight of the cross and they poked at Him and He got up again and again and again and His thoughts were of me and you. He saw us here this night in this troubled world under this image that God the Father has given to us and He said when the whole world turned their eyes away you came and you prayed and you said thanks.

God the Father: This was a gift that I gave to you. This is a gift to be cherished, a place in which you can come and know special favors of My love. Do not abandoned this mission but before your eyes see the face of My Son.

7. Hail Mary

The Crucifixion

1. Jesus: And I shed bloody tears for the little ones that I gave My life for and they would be condemned to the fires of hell for all eternity. Oh My precious ones you do not understand how much I love each and every one of My precious souls and Judas betrayed Me with a kiss and yet I loved him. And yet I gave Myself for all the souls. How is today that you cannot forgive when the very act of forgiving is teaching them about Me and My love. And I send them to you and you give them a lesson of anger. Oh precious one, pray to be holy, pray to see with the eyes of the Father — for I was hungry and you gave me to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me to drink, I was imprisoned and you came to see me. My ways are not the ways of the world, but My ways are given to you in My Word and My love is so great that you cannot even comprehend and yet I have given to you great grace to know more of My love because I love you so dearly and I have asked you to be a lover in this world today that I might live in you and that others will see My life alive in you and they will know your Heavenly Father and they too will worship Him. 

2. Jesus: It seems like so little to ask you to do these little acts of love and forgiveness, when you really look at me hanging on the cross and you see how much I suffered for you. Look at Me now. They pounded into My head a crown of piercing thorns. They hammered nails into My hands and My feet. They beat My body and I said yes, yes for My precious souls that I loved. What do I ask of you - but to love one another and to be kind but you say — "oh Jesus, you know we have this wounded human nature and we don't want to be jealous and we don't want to see imperfectly and we want to see clear but we just get angry, we get envious, we get jealous, we get lustful, we get slothful, we get greedy - but Jesus we are wounded human persons." And then I say to you - "but I give you Myself in the Eucharist and it is in that grace that your wounded human nature is healed more and more." What a gift! I did not leave you as orphans abandoned! But I gave to you the priest and the Eucharist.  I am with you and truly present today in My Divinity and humanity. Adam and Eve sinned and the people of the earth sinned and I forgave you and gave Myself so much that I came to the earth and I died on the cross and I rose on the third day. Do not be thank-less in the sight of God but thank-ful and love for to be likened to Me is to love. Look at Me on the cross. Can you not love the unloving? Not that you should suffer abuse but that you should pray for them that you know the souls of the earth in your heart and you are always offering your lives as a sacrifice - an offering, the mundane little tasks that you do every day becomes a sacrifice meaning an offering united to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass for the sake of souls and helping to make recompense to the Father for your sins. Simple you say - but hard to so many.

3. Hail Mary

4. Jesus: And I say — Come unto Me all who are weary and find rest for your soul,
                                 Come unto Me all who are burdened and I will comfort thee. 
                                 Place your head upon my shoulder
                                 Do not be afraid for I will gently tell you my way
                                 Come unto Me all who are weary and find rest for your soul,
                                 Come unto Me all who are burdened I will comfort thee.

5. Hail Mary

6. Jesus: And they picked My beard and pounded the thorns into My precious head. Can you not love the unloving? I cry bloody tears for the little ones whose souls will be lost to the fires of hell. Live to love. Obey the commandments and live by My Word. You are the light of the world.

7. R. And from the Immaculate Heart of the Virgin Mary the Holy Spirit brings us forth more and more as children of light for we were once blind we now see because the Holy Spirit fills us, illuminates us and lets us see where we were once blind - the plan of the Father because we were not placed on this earth without a purpose. We were created in the mind of the Divine God and given talents to do His work. He fashioned us. He gave us our parents. He gave us our eyes and our hair. He gave us our heart to love. He gave us our fingers to hold another's hand when we are afraid or in labor or whatever it is. How good is our God that He gives us the baby with the precious eyes and the smiles that are beyond anything that we can even talk about and He gives us the ocean wide and He gives us the sun so high, the sunlit day and the warmth of the sun and the cool of the night and the darkness for sleeping on a star-studded night and the moon hanging greeting us as we doze off to get restored for the next day.

Are we so blind that we do not see these gifts that God has given - our husbands and wives and children and grandchildren - our talents whereby I can sing and play the piano and tell you what's so deep in my heart that words never seem like they could ever express.

Why is it one word - Love - the key to it all is love - God is love. And if you don't believe me that we are to love look at Jesus on the cross here. He shows us love.

And the world is so saturated with the selfishness and the evil little things that are in some of these movies that I just almost die to see them. And think that our children are watching this and getting their minds confused. Some body on a boat getting whipped like their Christ at Pillar. That kind of stuff is not what God wants. That's confusion. But it's kind of like worshipped out there and big monies is spent at the theatres. I don't know. I don't focus on that. I know what Mary and Jesus are saying. My vision is coming from up there. My job is to deliver a message not to tell you there's a lot of evil in the world or that I should describe how souls are going to be lost. Mary said it for 13 years to me. That's the message here. There is hope. There is the Shepherds of Christ. There is the Priestly Newsletter that goes out to 80,000 priests every other month. There is the network of prayer. There is all these books that I've written forever that came from Jesus about talking about Jesus truly present in the Eucharist and the importance of the rosary.

How about the waters? It goes on. Now we got the statues with the little piece of glass out of the image window. You sit down some day and you write down all the ways that Shepherds of Christ has changed your life and then get down on your knees and thank God and pray for the grace to help us do more. Cause I just can't stand the thought of one soul being lost and Jesus cared so much He gave His life. He gave the last drop of His blood and the last beat of His Heart. I saw Him and the tears came from His eye and His mouth moved and I felt His presence next to me in this rosary. It was so awesome. God is with us in a special way because He has called us to be part of this ministry. And it's not mine and it's not John's and it's not Joe Lee's or Doris' or anybody else's. We are all committed. We are all united in love. And Joe and I both play wrong notes but that's okay.

8. Jesus: And I sweat bloody tears for your children, for the children of the earth. Can you not do the little thing of praying for them today when I attach so much grace to your prayers. I loved My precious souls so much I gave My life. I shed the last drop of My blood and gave the last beat of My Heart and I ask you to be a Shepherd of Christ member to pray the prayers, pray the Morning Offering, feel the connection of the family praying for the priests and the Church and the world and you will know miracles in your own lives. You will know your children that receive special graces. I am with you. Come to My Heart.

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.
