    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.

Early Morning A.M. August 14, 2003

Messenger:            The Light steeled across the darkened

                            sky and once again it was morning.

                                Last night on the way home from

                            China the moon looked orange, reddish

                            orange and it hung in a circle it

                            seemed in full view. It peeked up

                            above the trees as we drove and after

                            seeing its color and its size we

                            searched it out in the clearing to see

                            how reddish it truly was. It hung

                            low. When I got home it was lighter

                            in color and looked as if black

                            streaks were through it.

                                Today early morning on the way

                            to Church I see the moon smaller

                            now, the sky is blue, but it looks

                            like a little paper host, see-through sort

                            of with the light blue from behind

                            peeking through it. It is high in the sky

                            now, it seems to be saying something.

                                The sun is a brilliant white ball

                            of light but has a very definite orange

                            outline or orangish gold. It is even lower

                            than the moon last night. It's light is

                            penetrating, it is a huge ball and in its

                            beauty it leaves spots on my eyes from

                            looking at its intense light.

                            (note: looking at the sun can hurt your eyes)

                                The sun is low, big and so very intently

                            bright, the orange has faded now and it

                            appears more golden around the edges.

                            The moon is still in the sky, it almost

                            appears as a little remnant from last

                            nights party, high in the sky, very less

                            pronounced. Beautiful green foliage

                            line the way of my path —

                                Another day, another box to open.

                            Some old problems linger, pressing down

                            like the little moon hanging over from

                            the night before and I turn my thoughts

                            to Jesus, my beloved who I will soon

                            receive at Mass and to you to write as

                            Our Lord beckons me to write this day.

                                He is my refuge, the Mass is the

                            gift of my morning. I cannot control,

                            nor do I want to, those who seem

                            to come with a negative energy, a bag of

                            baggage or a pocket of gold.

                                I am in the palm of the hand of

                            my God. I give Him everything at Mass.

                            I want to be showered by His abundant

                            gifts. I want to be filled with His grace.

                                The sun has changed from deep orange

                            to golden to almost white. The sky is still

                            misty blue. Every minute passes never to

                            return and God is with us. God has

                            chosen to communicate to us in different


                                We know His love in each other.

                            We see a smile and know warmth.

                            Jesus comes to us in the Eucharist — He is

                            truly present in His Divinity and Humanity —

                            He loves us so much He comes to us

                            and remains with us, truly, present in

                            the tabernacle. I go to Mass and spend

                            my hour with my beloved God. I am

                            filled with His life. I can face better

                            the day, its trials and its joys.

                                Oh my beloved, I truly love Thee, I

                            know You are with me and I thank You for

                            receiving You in the Eucharist. I want to be

                            filled with Your grace. I want to love You

                            so deeply. I want to be one in You in every

                            thing I do. I am a sinner, I am imperfect, I

                            want my thought to be as You desire, to

                            handle all problems purely with love.

Jesus speaks:        Oh My child, just be with Me. Sometimes you

                            look at all your problems at once and then

                            you feel overwhelmed, it may be you feel weary —

                            things do not come like that —

                                satan wants to get you to give into him

                            in your thoughts — just don't do it — focus on

                            Me and the gifts you have been given — focus

                            on the green trees, the blue sky, the soft

                            music, I am with you, always, I never leave

                            your side. Let go of those tense shoulders, let

                            My Might work in you, it is a lesson of trust

                            and surrender as Dan said, you surrender to

                            Me, you trust I will take care of you.

Don't Ever Close Your Heart

Excerpt from 
November 2, 1993 - 4:00a.m.

Jesus speaks:  Trust in Me, My child. Your mind can run crazy. Open yourself up to Me and trust. Why do you not see that Satan wants to stop you and that he does not want the world to get these messages. Such messages of love and comfort! If he can work on you, you will stop. Don't be fooled by him. He is the grand deceiver. He plans to trip you up, to rob your sanity and move in with his sick ways. You, My child, are strong in Me. I need you to do My work. Laboring in your head, looking for proof, not totally trusting in Me-those come from him. Step on his head. Do not doubt. Pray for My strength. Open your heart to Me and My love-no room for a drop of doubt. I am truly here talking to you, little one. Think about My passion and death. I loved you. I love you this much still today. My heart is so on fire for love of you. You can't even begin to know how much love I have for you. Just be open to all I send you and cast your doubts away. It is your act of trusting that helps you develop trust in Me. Step-by-step you ascend the stairs and you get closer each time to trusting more in Me. It is your taking each little step that counts. Ascend My steps each day, every day. A million times a day you can trust or worry. You choose, "Do I trust or not trust?" How could you not trust after all I did to prove My love for you? Focus on My passion, on My wounds, on My love, on Me, the one, true God, Who loves you this much! You are precious to Me, My little baby. Come and let Me comfort you. Lose yourself in My arms. "And they came and they were given His peace and love deep in their souls."

August 14, 2003 message continues  

Messenger:             My daughter gave me a cross for my birthday

                            and in the center it had part of the "footprints"

                            verse. Remember the one set of footprints,

                            it was when Jesus carried the person.

                                We must first surrender to Him and trust

                            He will take care of us.

Jesus speaks:         Control is the enemy of many souls.

                            They give into their thoughts. If they have a

                            moment of peace, soon an unsettling thought

                            comes and they act on anything "willy-nilly."

                            The secret to the peace within is surrender —

                            turning your will over to Me and trying to

                            always operate according to My will.

                            Some people give themselves "messages" because

                            they had thoughts, others cannot get out of

                            the paralyzing grip of satan they allow satan to 

                            control their thoughts by giving into that negative

                            thinking. It keeps them bowed down, unproductive,

                            they play the scenario victim and pin their baggage

                            on a victimizer who innocently never even did

                            what they have created in their mind. At some

                            point they may erupt to get even. They will

                            not heal, they are only suppressing action until    

                            the burning anger inside becomes so fierce they

                            may carry out some punishing destructive

                            behavior against their victimizer to reduce

                            their own tension.

                                They want that problem, all the time, with

                            someone, they are working on this. To know them,

                            to be with them is to work on a problem,

                            not to freely do work and produce fruits —

                            there is a lot of baggage in them. They are

                            always working on an issue. They want to 

                            work out their issues inside with someone. 

                            To interact with them may mean they picked

                            you as their victimizer. They carry an arrow

                            of anger and want others to listen about how

                            they have been victimized.

                                The problem is they don't give freely to    

                            the work and they are so filled with bitterness

                            inside, unforgiven hatred toward others, they

                            constantly need to pin their "vent-up" anger

                            on someone so they experience release of

                            tension. They have a bag of anger, hurt

                            feelings inside, they never resolve to get rid

                            of it and to be with them is to work with their

                            unvented anger, giving and taking to see who

                            they can fully or partially control.

                            It is mixed with pride to never want to be under

                                anyone. They usually want to control, to

                                control every place and the emotions of all

                                those around them with some situation

                                they create to get attention and control.

                            A family had many outings, birthdays, other

                                celebrations. Oscar was always playing the

                                victim role in his head, always so busy in

                                his thoughts trying to control things. His mind

                                was always active, never at rest, he didn't

                                surrender, he said he trusted in Me, but he

                                only said that so he could convince himself

                                he was doing everything right, between

                                his head, he saw only his way and he

                                did everything to control others.

                            My Mother is the model for a handmaid and

                                servant. She served Me. She did all

                                she could to please Me. My Mother is

                                a handmaid of the Lord.

                            On Birthdays and special occasions, Oscar

                                would take things apart that were needed

                                for the gathering. He removed the faucet once

                                right before a picnic.

                                He then made the whole family feel

                            irritated. No one could use the kitchen

                            water, He didn't see himself as the problem,

                            he said he knew some washers needed to

                            be replaced then when he got into the

                            faucet he didn't know how to do it so

                            everyone had to do without the water

                            in the kitchen sink.

                                It is interesting how people manipulate

                            events to get the focus. They almost sabotage

                            big events because of their jealousy. Time

                            and time again they are the trigger for satan

                            who uses their bizarre behavior to make

                            things go off. The focus is always on them,

                            many times they act on thoughts they have that are

                            not rational, they want the time of the

                            gathering to be tense. They are unfamiliar

                            with peace and harmony, they are used

                            to upheaval, unpredictability, tension,

                            (This seems normal to them) —

                                They may have grown up in a home when

                            the children made their First Communion and

                            other events dad left the scene and sometimes 

                            showed up or came as it was beginning which

                            made everyone tense wondering if they would

                            drive together or what. The family may have

                            been always late waiting for the alcoholic

                            parent who may show or may not show —

                            they may have caused trouble over every trip —

                            would they go — would they stay home —

                            would they go — would they stay home —

                            like picking daisy petals.

                                It is a waste of time, it is negative energy —

                            some people get headaches when family gathering

                            are planned just so they can get their way and

                            not have anyone control them.

                                Control can be a big issue. From the first

                            moment a young novice was told to do a chore

                            she thought of every reason she could why

                            she couldn't do it. Her leg all of a sudden

                            began to give her trouble so she couldn't

                            wait on an older sick sister.

                                The bottom line is you must live in the

                            truth. You must pray to be more like the

                            Virgin Mary, she is the perfect handmaid.

                                Satan is a roaring lion, looking for

                            someone to devour.

                                What is in your heart? Do you really want

                            harmony, do you want to serve? Some

                            people spend their whole lives living a

                            single life and are some very hard

                            people to mix with. They may insist on

                            their way, they have had few give and

                            take relationships with husbands, intimate

                            others or may be divorced and have not

                            had children which they have had to

                            work with.

                                Some people have always been in

                            control and they won't bend to share a

                            life in harmony with others.

                                Some constantly create disharmony with

                            others, they have a "surprise" for you. If

                            you make arrangements with them, they

                            will do something at the same time

                            and then cause problems every time.

                                Basically Bertha just would never get

                            along, she sulked, she told people

                            what to do, she interrupted the leader,

                            she always had a new idea for the boss,

                            if her boss told her to put the blue paper

                            over the red one, she had an issue with it.

                                Most conversations with Bertha were

                            because of a power struggle. Some people

                            just will never have a relationship under

                            others. If a superior gives a direction they

                            argue and want a "tit" for "tat" thing

                            "I give you one", "you give me one" — the focus

                            is not the work at hand and productivity

                                It is working out issues that, that person

                            works out every time they are involved in

                            anything. They are always concerned with

                            where they are giving power away and

                            the job doesn't even enter into it.

                                The story at the beginning of the Bible is

                            Adam and Eve. They sinned, they disobeyed

                            God. Pride was involved. Next there is the

                            sin of jealousy, Cain and Abel. Cain was

                            so jealous he killed his brother. The thoughts

                            were in his head, the devil tempted him —


Genesis 4: 6-7

Yahweh asked Cain, ‘Why are you angry and downcast? If you are doing right, surely you ought to hold your head high! But if you are not doing right, Sin is crouching at the door hungry to get you. You can still master him.’

Jesus speaks:     Look at the Story of

                                Abraham and Isaac


Genesis 22: 1-14  

Abraham’s sacrifice

It happened some time later that God put Abraham to the test. ‘Abraham, Abraham!’ he called. ‘Here I am,’ he replied. God said, ‘Take your son, your only son, your beloved Isaac, and go to the land of Moriah, where you are to offer him as a burnt offering on one of the mountains which I shall point out to you.’ 

    Early next morning Abraham saddled his donkey and took with him two of his servants and his son Isaac. He chopped wood for the burnt offering and started on his journey to the place which God had indicated to him. On the third day Abraham looked up and saw the place in the distance. Then Abraham said to his servants, ‘Stay here with the donkey. The boy and I are going over there; we shall worship and then come back to you.’ 

    Abraham took the wood for the burnt offering, loaded it on Isaac, and carried in his own hands the fire and the knife. Then the two of them set out together. Isaac spoke to his father Abraham. ‘Father?’ he said. ‘Yes, my son,’ he replied. ‘Look,’ he said, ‘here are the fire and the wood, but where is the lamb for the burnt offering?’ Abraham replied, ‘My son, God himself will provide the lamb for the burnt offering.’ And the two of them went on together. 

    When they arrived at the place which God had indicated to him, Abraham built an altar there, and arranged the wood. Then he bound his son and put him on the altar on top of the wood. Abraham stretched out his hand and took the knife to kill his son. 

    But the angel of Yahweh called to him from heaven. ‘Abraham, Abraham!’ he said. ‘Here I am,’ he replied. ‘Do not raise your hand against the boy,’ the angel said. ‘Do not harm him, for now I know you fear God. You have not refused me your own beloved son.’ Then looking up, Abraham saw a ram caught by its horns in a bush. Abraham took the ram and offered it as a burnt offering in place of his son. Abraham called this place ‘Yahweh provides’, and hence the saying today: ‘On the mountain Yahweh provides.’

Genesis 37: 27-28

Come, let us sell him to the Ishmaelites, then we shall not have laid hands on him ourselves. After all, he is our brother, and our own flesh.’ His brothers agreed. 

    Now some Midianite merchants were passing, and they pulled Joseph out of the well. They sold Joseph to the Ishmaelites for twenty shekels of silver, and these men took Joseph to Egypt.

Jesus speaks:     Here is the Story of Moses


Exodus 2: 1-8

The birth of Moses

There was a man descended from Levi who had taken a woman of Levi as his wife. She conceived and gave birth to a son and, seeing what a fine child he was, she kept him hidden for three months. When she could hide him no longer, she got a papyrus basket for him; coating it with bitumen and pitch, she put the child inside and laid it among the reeds at the River’s edge. His sister took up position some distance away to see what would happen to him.

    Now Pharaoh’s daughter went down to bathe in the river, while her maids walked along the riverside. Among the reeds she noticed the basket, and she sent her maid to fetch it. She opened it and saw the child: the baby was crying. Feeling sorry for it, she said, ‘This is one of the little Hebrews.’ The child’s sister then said to Pharaoh’s daughter, ‘Shall I go and find you a nurse among the Hebrew women to nurse the child for you?’ ‘Yes,’ said Pharaoh’s daughter, and the girl went and called the child’s own mother.


Exodus 3: 4

When Yahweh saw him going across to look, God called to him from the middle of the bush. ‘Moses, Moses!’ he said. ‘Here I am,’ he answered.


Exodus 12: 21-29  

Injunctions relating to the Passover

Moses summoned all the elders of Israel and said to them, ‘Go and choose a lamb or kid for your families, and kill the Passover victim. Then take a bunch of hyssop, dip it in the blood that is in the basin, and with the blood from the basin touch the lintel and both door–posts; then let none of you venture out of the house till morning. Then, when Yahweh goes through Egypt to strike it, and sees the blood on the lintel and on both door–posts, he will pass over the door and not allow the Destroyer to enter your homes and strike. You will observe this as a decree binding you and your children for all time, and when you have entered the country which Yahweh will give you, as he has promised, you will observe this ritual. And when your children ask you, "What does this ritual mean?" you will tell them, "It is the Passover sacrifice in honour of Yahweh who passed over the houses of the Israelites in Egypt, and struck Egypt but spared our houses." ’ And the people bowed in worship. The Israelites then went away and did as Yahweh had ordered Moses and Aaron.

The tenth plague: death of the first–born

And at midnight Yahweh struck down all the first–born in Egypt from the first–born of Pharaoh, heir to his throne, to the first–born of the prisoner in the dungeon, and the first–born of all the livestock.


Exodus 16: 4-14

    Yahweh then said to Moses, ‘Look, I shall rain down bread for you from the heavens. Each day the people must go out and collect their ration for the day; I propose to test them in this way to see whether they will follow my law or not. On the sixth day, however, when they prepare what they have brought in, this must be twice as much as they collect on ordinary days.’ 

    Moses and Aaron then said to the whole community of Israelites, ‘This evening you will know that it was Yahweh who brought you out of Egypt, and tomorrow morning you will see the glory of Yahweh, for Yahweh has heard your complaints about him. What are we, that your complaint should be against us?’ Moses then said, ‘This evening Yahweh will give you meat to eat, and tomorrow morning bread to your heart’s content, for Yahweh has heard your complaints about him. What do we count for? Your complaints are not against us, but against Yahweh.’ 

    Moses then said to Aaron, ‘Say to the whole community of Israelites, "Approach Yahweh’s presence, for he has heard your complaints." ’ As Aaron was speaking to the whole community of Israelites, they turned towards the desert, and there the glory of Yahweh appeared in the cloud. Yahweh then spoke to Moses and said, ‘I have heard the Israelites’ complaints. Speak to them as follows, "At twilight you will eat meat, and in the morning you will have bread to your heart’s content, and then you will know that I am Yahweh your God." ’ 

    That evening, quails flew in and covered the camp, and next morning there was a layer of dew all round the camp. When the layer of dew lifted, there on the surface of the desert was something fine and granular, as fine as hoarfrost on the ground.


Exodus 32: 19

    And there, as he approached the camp, he saw the calf and the groups dancing. Moses blazed with anger. He threw down the tablets he was holding, shattering them at the foot of the mountain.


Deuteronomy 11: 1-9 

Israel’s past experiences

‘You must love Yahweh your God and always keep his observances, his laws, his customs, his commandments. You are the ones who have had the experience, not your children. They have not had the experience, they have not witnessed the lessons of Yahweh your God, his greatness, his mighty hand and his outstretched arm, the signs and the deeds which he performed in the heart of Egypt, against Pharaoh king of Egypt and his entire country, what he did to the armies of Egypt, to their horses and their chariots, by overwhelming them with the waters of the Sea of Reeds when they were pursuing you, and leaving no trace of them to this day; what he did for you in the desert, until you arrived here; what he did to Dathan and Abiram the sons of Eliab the Reubenite, when, with all Israel standing round, the earth opened its mouth and swallowed them, with their families, their tents and all their supporters. All these great deeds of Yahweh you have seen with your own eyes.

Promises and warnings

‘You must keep all the commandments which I enjoin on you today, so that you may have the strength to conquer the country into which you are about to cross, to take possession of it, and so that you may live long in the country which Yahweh promised on oath to bestow on your ancestors and their descendants, a country flowing with milk and honey.

Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus

My dear fellow Associate Members,

Jesus is calling special apostles to join a new division of the Shepherds of Christ Movement. Here is a message from Jesus given to Father Carter:

    My beloved priest-companion, I am requesting that a new prayer movement be started under the direction of Shepherds of Christ Ministries. I am asking for volunteers who are willing to pray before the Blessed Sacrament for one hour, twice-weekly. Members of the Shepherds of Christ prayer chapters, as well as others, are to be invited to join this movement.

    These apostles are to pray for the intentions I am giving you. For part of the hour they are to use the prayers of the Shepherds of Christ Associates Handbook. They may spend the rest of the hour as they so choose.

    I will use this new prayer movement within My Shepherds of Christ Ministries in a powerful way to help in the renewal of My Church and the world. I will give great graces to those who join this movement. The name, Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus, is to be given to this movement.

    I am inviting My beloved Rita Ring to be coordinator for this activity.

    I pour out the great love of My Sacred Heart to all. I am Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the flock.

    This is indeed a special calling for us to unite in one heart with His Eucharistic Heart and pray for the following intentions:

  1. For the spread of the devotion to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary culminating in the reign of the Sacred Heart and the triumph of the Immaculate Heart.
  2. For the Pope.
  3. For all bishops of the world.
  4. For all priests.
  5. For all sisters and brothers in the religious life.
  6. For all members of the Shepherds of Christ Movement, and for the spread of this movement to the world.
  7. For all members of the Catholic Church.
  8. For all members of the human family.
  9. For all souls in purgatory.

Mary appeared on the building
December 17, 1996.



Two days later,
Jesus and Mary gave me this message.

December 19, 1996

Received in a few minutes after Communion
St. Gertrude Church

Jesus speaks:  My Beloved Ones,

You will know a great time of trial and darkness. I have written to you of the great sufferings to come. The sinfulness of this world greatly displeases Me. I beg you to pray for forgiveness and turn your hearts to love.

And darkness covered the earth and the light was cast in little corners of the earth. Those who were willful remained in intense darkness, those who were rooted in God, and giving themselves to consecration, were the children of the light.

And the light shown in the darkness and the darkness grasped it not, but to as many as responded, they became the children of the light and from them His life flowed into the hearts that were cold and dark and slowly, very slowly, the light began to steal across the darkened sky and the moon was covered with blood. The blood was the blood of the Lamb. The blood represented the blood He shed to give us life. But the blind just saw ordinary blood and were scared to death. They responded with the greatest fright and lacked peace, but those rooted in God, those whose hearts were consecrated to Mary and Jesus, knew the sign was from God--that the time of reckoning was at hand. Many were punished and suffered a great chastisement. Many were left to death, but the children of light prayed the rosary and trusted in God.

And the night was no more for the light of day came stealing across the sky and myriads of angels filled the sky and the heavens. Sing Alleluia, Praise the Lord, you saints and angels, show yourselves to the survivors for they walked in darkness and could not see, but the light was alive in their hearts and they dwelt within the furnace of His Heart.

Have no fear now, My people, for you are the children of the light and My hand is forever upon you. You may suffer now a little, but it is nothing compared to the splendor to come.

Messenger: Oh, reign of peace, reign of the Sacred Heart, triumph of her Immaculate Heart, we wait for you anxiously for the nights have been cold and dark and we cried a bitter cry in the darkness but we knew of the glories to come for we forever trusted in You and Your mighty hand.

Your hand is struck with power. The Virgin Mary warned the poor children that died an eternal death to mind their ways and they cried out, "Not me, oh, no, God -- your ways are stiff necked and cruel. I want for foolish pleasure now and tomorrow will care for itself."

And the Lord called and called and they marched into the darkness with cold hearts, telling the Almighty God, 'no'.

Mary speaks: Oh, my children, my little children of light, the time is nigh and many will be lost forever. I appeared and warned and told all to mind their ways and come to the Heart of my Son and they said "No, my Lady, not for you or any mother. We are children of darkness and that we remain, for we seek our pleasure by day and feast on sin all night and when you called, mother, we laughed at your Son and ignored Him and His ways." And He called and His call fell on deaf ears.

Please, my children of light, come to my heart now for although you walked next to the children of darkness. I smite the dragon that whirled around you and protected you in my heart and you will now feast on the glories of His Kingdom, my little children of light.

end of December 19, 1996



Five days after Mary appeared
on the building on December 17, 1996,
Jesus gave me this message.


December 22, 1996

Jesus speaks:  Brace yourselves in the Shepherds of Christ. You want to be Christ-like. Is this the true desire in your heart or is it just words like the other words you give to Me?

Brace yourselves. I will lead the way with My rod and My staff, but you must be strong to follow for the way is rocky and the rocks are sharp. They cut through to the soul. They cut through to your heart.

You will be brought to your knees, you will beg for Me, you will be molded and helped with in the abundant grace flowing from My Heart. My little shepherd, so willful and so stupid in your ways, but I love you just the same to My death, child. I love you and you do not see that all I give to you is for your good.

I am not angry with you, My messenger. You must suffer now to write My messages for the world. How could you write had you not experienced My pain in your soul? You are My hand, that I am using to write the messages of My Heart for the world. My Heart was crowned with thorns. So, too, will your heart be pierced and wanting to bleed. Bleed, little heart, My Heart bled for you.

And the moon will be covered with blood. It was the blood of the Lamb and it poured forth on a sinful world to cleanse them of their sin, and I give you My Body and Blood in the Mass and I am ignored.

He slapped their hands and He smite their cheeks and they laughed in their pain and continued their willful ways. But the day of reckoning is at hand and I will separate the sheep from the goats and the sheep I will take home with Me. The goats will know a day as they never knew before for My justice will prevail.

When I warned they would not turn from their evil ways and I could not reach them. They walked as blind men down the path of destruction and who would have thought that the end of the road was so near. And at the end of the road they continued to walk for in the darkness they could not see and they fell into an everlasting pit of doom and suffering.

Justice will prevail. I am a good God. Justice and truth will kiss. When I gave to them My warning they said, "Oh no, Lord," and continued their sinful ways.

The time is at hand. My efforts and yours were in vain. I will wipe their sick smiles from their evil mouths and they will suffer forever the death of the soul.

I will not have mercy on these hard-necked cowards who thought, in their pride, they could smite Me. I will throw the book at them and they will suffer for their sinful ways.

Woe to them who led My children astray. Woe to them. They will burn the eternal death of intense suffering for the murder of My young. And who will help them then? They will know a death beyond all deaths and suffering beyond all suffering. For a few moments of pleasure, they lost their souls forever.

I am a just and merciful God. I give water to quench your thirst, I bathe you in My divine love, but to the evil doers, I will curse their name and wipe them from the face of the earth. I have spoken. Justice will prevail. My hand is struck with power. The senseless ones will know My might.

Who will you call? You said 'no' to God and He struck you for your sinful ways.

All honor and glory be to God for He has visited His people and they cast Him aside. I will light the earth with My love and the dark hearts will curse the night for they will be no more.

And justice will flourish in His time and fullness of peace forever.

I have spoken. The deaf will not hear. My hand is the hand of God and it is struck with power.

I say to the grass to grow and it grows, to the sun to shine and it shines and to you I say, "Be ready for you know not the day nor the hour. I come as a thief in the night to take your soul home to Me. Will you be ready or will you be caught unprepared?"

Prepare ye a way to the Lord. Make ready His steps, My shepherds. I guard you but you will suffer. You must be strong and not caught off guard.

Purify your souls for I am coming and the earth will know My light this Christmas for I will shine in the hearts of the just. I will shine on My shepherds this Christmas. My light will shine in the hearts of those consecrated to My Heart and the heart of My Mother.

Alleluia, a King is born this day. Put aside your silly ways, your bows and tinsel, and praise God. He is in your midst. He reigns this day. You are ignoring the King of Glory. Oh, sinful world, you are in for a weird awakening.

And the light stole across the sky and the light of day shown brighter than seven suns, not to the eye but in the hearts of His faithful ones, the hearts consecrated to God.

Excerpt from The Spirituality of Fatima

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)

Excerpt from the rosary of August 19, 1997

Jesus:  Come away with Me, My young ones. Come into the field and taste of the beauty of the air and the beauty of this day with the most beautiful flowers that I have created for you. Do you see the beauty in each petal of the flower, or are your eyes covered with mud that you do not see? I have lifted the veil for you today and I have showed you My way. My way is the way of trust and faith and I told you in the message on Sunday that you must have faith and endurance, for I took you to the darkest night to the pointiest tunnel, to the place where you thought that you would never return and at that point I opened up through a little hole the light of day and it came streaming in and you perceived and you felt My presence, which is greater than all the things of this earth.

    Wipe the grin off your face you silly earth, for you have ran after so many foolish things, when I stood there adorned in white before you, in the most glorious robes and you did not perceive that the Almighty God was alive and so I have called and I have told you and I have allowed you, My shepherds, to suffer, but the days ahead will be days of great victory, for I come to you clothed in white and adorned in a gold veil and you see that God lives and you will carry the white flag across this earth. You My shepherds, have won and the victory is yours.

    Did you fall in the mud and did you skin your knees, did you feel your head ache as Mine ached in the garden, did you feel the thorns poke deeply into your skull, and did you feel the ripping of your flesh as the sword went into your skin?

    I am Jesus, I am God, I will not be undone. I am Almighty and all powerful to the ends of the earth. You will know My might and you will not be afraid, but you will not know this if you do not trust, for I have told you the secrets in My messages, but you do not read as if you believe, you read half heartedly. You must believe with all your heart that I speak to you to be heard, for you truly are the shepherds that will go across this earth and carry the white flag, but you do not have this conviction within your heart, so therefore you do not do all that I have asked you to do, your belief is wishy-washy and you do not believe with a conviction of a strong heart.

    I am calling you My shepherds this night to renew your faith and your endurance to realize that I am God and I have spoken here to you this evening. I am alive, I am alive, I am alive and I am with you, I am your God.

    You wanted the light all the time and the light was not in the plan of the Father. It comes in light and it comes in darkness, it comes in death and it comes in victory, it comes in death and it comes in Resurrection, it comes in pain, and it comes in joy, but this world tells you today to look for only the joy and when you do not find it to do everything that you can to fill your selfish pleasurish whims that you have within you.

    I tell you that you must fall to your knees, that your knees will be scuffed and that you will suffer and your flesh will be torn and your head will be crowned with thorns, but you will come forth from the tomb with a veil of white across your face and you will say this is the victory that we have won because we have lived in Him.

Jesus: Your Movement will spread forth to the far ends of the earth, but it is faith that I am calling you to My beloved ones, you must have faith in your hearts, for this is a sign that I give to you this day. If you do not believe, you will not be able to continue ahead, for you must move ahead in faith. It is the only way that you must operate. You cannot operate trying to logically think your way across this world. It is only in believing and obeying the messages that the job will get done. It is My might that will lead this Movement to the far corners of the earth. Open your pockets and let us see your money. Do you have the money to do the things that I have asked you to do? It is in prayer, hourly prayer and begging for the funds, realizing that it is in your prayer, that it is in your endurance, that it is in your faith and your sacrifices that your prayers will be answered. You must pray hourly the Novena to the Infant of Prague and I will answer your prayers, and you My beloved ones will know the results when you pray.

Song: This is Holy Ground

Jesus: I have given to you the greatest gift this day. I am Jesus, and I have come to you and I have asked you to open wide your heart and to thank Me for the gift I have given, for if the answer would have been different how would your hearts be this night, and how was it with the lepers, when I gave to them the great gift and they did not come and say thanks, but you are My holy ones that I am sending into this world and your hearts must be filled with joy. I have asked you over and over again to sing to Me with a heart that is filled with joy. I have given to you songs that I wrote Myself for you to sing of the love of My Heart. I am Jesus, the Son of God and you are the apostles of this new era. As you go out into the dark night the light will shine behind you and many will know the light of My Heart. Do not be discouraged, for the very hairs of your head are numbered and I am with you at this very moment, guarding and watching you, give Me your heart My shepherds. I have given to you a great gift this day, give Me your thanks and continue to pray. It is through prayer that you will accomplish all that the Father intends you to accomplish.

    I am Jesus, the Son of God. I have chosen you, I have called you and you will accomplish the work that the Father intends you to through prayer. Do not be discouraged, but encouraged for I am God and I am with you. Think of how it was before, when you did not share your love with so many others, but I have given you each other and I have bound your hearts in one heart and you come here because your hearts are filled with great joy. The more you love and the more the Movement spreads, the more will be the blessings, for as the love expounds and gets larger, the love is more full, for your love is rooted in Me and the more you love deeply the more full the love you will have. This is how it will be, one body in Me, and you will love many and you will know them deeply in your heart and your heart is full My shepherds, because I have taught you My ways of love and given you each other. You are My holy family and I love you. I have called you and so you say “why me?”, and I say to you “why this Saint, or that Saint or why the Blessed Mother, why were you called?”. You were called because I love you and I have given to you a great grace to be My shepherd in the Shepherds of Christ Movement.

Excerpt from February 28, 1999

Messenger:  On the 20th of August, 1997, I was at St. Gertrude's and the Lord appeared transfigured on the cross. I heard the voice of the Father speak, "This is My beloved Son, in Whom I am well pleased, listen to Him."

end of excerpt from February 28, 1999


August 14, 1999 - Vigil of the Assumption

From Mary delivered at 3:00 a.m., awakened at 2:00 a.m.

Mary speaks: I appeared at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center daily. I ask this day that a prayer meeting as directed by my Son be held daily at 6:20 p.m. before the Sorrowful Mother statue, if possible, and the exposed Eucharist, if possible. It will go as follows, the format being that given in the February 23, 1999, message from Jesus.

    I wish the main prayers of the Novena to the Holy Spirit to be prayed as directed by my Son, followed by the Shepherds of Christ prayers and the rosary. I wish my messenger or any person of Shepherds of Christ to lead this prayer service. I wish the freedom for the messenger to be there. I wish a worthy-standing apostle in the Shepherds of Christ to lead the prayers. This is my request. I am Our Lady of Fatima, Our Lady of Clearwater, Our Lady of the Rosary, Our Lady of Sorrows - Our Lady of the Holy Spirit. This is my Center, this is my request. I cannot tell you the importance of this message to the plan of the Father. Because of willfulness it has been blocked. Because of the workings of Satan, it has been blocked. I am Our Lady of Light. I appeared there daily from July 5, 1994 - September 5, 1995. I ask for this: a simple prayer meeting to comply with the format set by Jesus, February 23, 1999. I am Our Lady of the Rosary. I wish this to be begun immediately. You will pray as I have instructed because you love me. I am Our Lady of the Holy Spirit. For this prayer meeting the Holy Spirit Prayers to be recited are those given by my Son.

    I am Our Lady of the Holy Spirit. This is my Center. You will listen if you love me and Him. I am Our Lady of the Holy Spirit. I am Mary your Mother, Queen of Peace.

    Special graces are given for healing (especially spiritual healing) wherever and whenever these prayers are prayed at 6:20 p.m. Tuesday.

    I wish the youth to come on Sunday (and on Thursday at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center) at all places where the prayers are recited. These prayers can be recited in about one hour or less. I am Mary, please answer my request.

We pray all prayers for the priests and the renewal of the Church and the world and for the Shepherds of Christ intentions. By the precious Body and Blood of Jesus we cast out Satan far from this place, our families, the Shepherds of Christ Movement, Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center, the Church and the world. We ask the Blood of Jesus be spread on us, the Shepherds of Christ Movement, Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center, the Church and the world.
