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.

A Letter I wrote to a Bishop today



From: Rita Ring

To: Bishop of _____

Sent: Tuesday, August 27, 2002 10:27 AM

Subject: Greetings from _______


My dear Bishop,


    I give my heart to Jesus and Mary with you in love. Thank you for your most kind letter.


    Oh dear Bishop, I pray so deeply at the consecration of the Mass so all the souls of the earth will know Jesus and recognize Him as the Son of God. We have very many prayer services praying for you, our beloved priests and then the Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus begun by Fr. Carter has people 2 hours a week before the Blessed Sacrament praying the prayers Father Carter gave us for the priests, the Church and the world. We pray deeply for the Bishops and I pray deeply for the Bishops every day. 


    I feel so connected to all the souls of the earth at Mass and cry so deep in my heart so they will recognize Jesus as the Son of God. I want them so deeply to make Jesus the King and Center of their hearts. Thank you for writing to me because I feel this need as you speak so deeply in my heart.


    We have adoration for 48 hours in our Church in China, Indiana 1 and 1/2 hours from Cincinnati. This is monthly. Fr. Carter always began it with the Mass on the 12th of each month and exposed the Eucharist and then he would say Mass on the 14th and put the Eucharist away. On the 13th to commemorate Fatima a whole Church full of people pray before the exposed Eucharist about 5 hours uniting to a Mass going on in Cincinnati and watching the Mass on a video. The prayer session starts at 12 noon.


    We pray so deeply that the souls of the earth will know Jesus and recognize Him as the Son of God. We pray so deeply that the people of the earth will know the Persons of the Trinity most intimately. We pray with all our hearts the Shepherds of Christ prayers in the little red book and pray so deeply for all the Bishops and Cardinals and the Pope and the priests of the world. We love our priests so much. We unite by broadcast to about 10 states and they pray too.


    We have prayer chapters praying nightly at 6:20 every day from all over the world. Please pray the little prayers in the red prayer manual with us. The litanies to Jesus and Mary are so wonderful and they help make reparation to Their Hearts for the offences against them.


    A key is to get the people to consecrate their hearts to Jesus and Mary and their homes and display images of the Two Hearts. We try to get all the people to say a few lines every morning and unite all they do to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and offer it up for the Priests, the Church and the world. 


    We really appreciate all of your prayers for us in this mission begun by Fr. Carter to help renew the Church and the world. I hope we can stay very deeply united in prayer for the priests, the Church and the world. Thank you, Thank you Thank you for all you are doing. I cry so deeply in prayer asking Jesus to help the souls of this earth to recognize Jesus as their King. Your holy Bishop Prayers can help us so much. Please pray with us united in this mission.


With much love in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary,


Rita Ring
