August 8, 2001

Messenger:        Love can be so deep in our hearts. We feel this
                       deep connection in Him. Words are so little as
                       compared to the real love felt.

Mary speaks:     My children, I love my little ones so much. You love
                        your children too. That love seems so deep in your
                        heart sometimes. Oh I speak of the depth of love.
                        Your capacity to love ever deepens as you become
                        more one in My Son Jesus. The more you know Him,
                        the more you are saturated with His grace, the more
                        deeply you can love, the greater your capacity to love
                        in Him.
                            Oh my children, my love for my little ones is so great.
                        There is such a connection a woman can feel for the child
                        of her womb for she remembers the life that moved within
                        her. She sees these little ones grow, she gives them the milk
                        from her breast.
                            You must realize the deep connection is in the heart. You
                        must realize there is a deep connection between the souls of 
                        the earth and those in heaven.

Messenger:          I was five when my mother died, but today from a light
                        given to me from my Beloved God and the words of Our
                        Lady, I felt a deep connection with my mother that gave
                        me birth. I likewise felt a deeper connection with the 
                        Blessed Mother who appeared to me daily those 14 months.
                            The word mother and the realization of how deeply the
                        connection is in my heart with them even though I am
                        not seeing them was the light I received.
                            Now as I write to you my heart feels warm and connected
                        and one with my mother who gave me birth and my Mother
                        Mary and the souls of heaven and earth in a profound way
                        even though I am not seeing anyone. It is depth that I feel
                        in my heart. It is a realization how truly connected I am with
                        my mother and my father and my heavenly Mother Mary
                        and my heavenly Father. 
                            Since I knew Fr. Carter, 1994, birthdays were always
                        celebrated by a Mass that Father Carter offered for my 
                        birthday. I felt so connected to God on my birthday 
                        because he offered the Mass for my birthday. This is a 
                        very special present to me. Father Carter would say I am 
                        celebrating the Mass for your intentions for your birthday. 
                        My birthday took on special meaning ever since I knew 
                        Fr. Carter. It was so special because of the Mass. I felt so deeply 
                        united to the two Hearts as never before on my birthday. My
                        Sacred Heart is everything to me and what He wants.
                        Since August 8, 1994 my life took a deeper turn as I began
                        dwelling more and more in the Heart of my Beloved Savior, Jesus.
                        The word Jesus to me sounds so sweet and Sacred as I write it.
                        You know when you love somebody and the mention of their
                        name makes you happy. The mention of the name of Jesus
                        and speaking of Jesus here fills my heart with the greatest joy.
                            Today is my birthday and a special gift is given to me more
                        than any other already. My heart is so deeply connected to Jesus
                        in the Mass. My heart thirsts for the Mass. My heart longs
                        for a deeper connection with heaven, I can go to the highest
                        mountain and see the sun shining brighter than ever before,
                        but it will never compare to the light I feel inside being one with
                        Jesus united to Him in the Mass.
                            I dwell in the great abyss of His Heart. I am so filled
                        with fire in my heart and love for Him.
                            Someone asked me "how do you feel about Mary your mother,
                        like a mother?" They described the relationship in human terms
                        of their mother here below.
                            My relationship with Mary is not like an earthly mother,
                        it can be compared as such, but to me and from the
                        beginning after my mother died there was a oneness with
                        Mary. She is so one with me in my heart. I know her.
                        I can't describe it. It isn't like a relationship that I can define.
                        Since she appeared in all those visits July 5, 1994 to September 5, 
                        1995, I know her so deeply. There was knowledge printed on my 
                        soul during those ecstasies. I was permitted to experience emotions
                        that helped me know the heart of Mary. I know a lot of the
                        sufferings and joys of her heart when she was on this earth.
                            The messages Mary gave me about her heart were embedded
                        in my soul during those apparitions and deep experiences. I would
                        go into an ecstatic state many times during her apparitions. It is
                        so hard to describe what was given to me. These were at Our Lady
                        of the Holy Spirit Center and Holy Cross-Immaculata. I had deep
                        insights into the heart of Mary and the Heart of Jesus.
                            I was given knowledge through experiences I had during the 
                        Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. I experienced this,
                        it was embedded in my heart. And to those who use the meditations
                        given "Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary" or go to live
                        rosaries, they too, if they are open and desiring, can receive deep
                        insights into knowing more deeply the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.
                        They can have deep experiences while praying these Rosary Meditations,
                        Jesus and Mary have promised this. They promised that when these
                        rosary meditations are used fervently that They would be there in a special
                        way and when the live rosary tapes were listened to great graces
                        would be given to those who come with an open heart and pray
                        the rosary. 
                            See the promise of Jesus given to Father Carter (13th promise)
                        July 31, 1994.



13th Promise

Jesus speaks: "I am calling many to become members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. To all of them I will give great blessings. I will use them as instruments to help bring about the triumph of the Immaculate Heart and the reign of My Sacred Heart. I will give great graces to the members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. I will call them to be deeply united to My Heart and to Mary's Heart as I lead them ever closer to My Father in the Holy Spirit."

- July 31, 1994



August 8, 2001 message continues

Messenger:        A similar promise was given to me when the meditations
                        "Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary" are used
                         in written or recorded form.
                            So many people have been led into a deep love union
                        with Jesus and Mary from using the Rosary meditations
                        in the Red Rosary Book.



August 8, 2001 message continues

Messenger:        Our Lord woke me early to deliver this message. Our Lady
                        began to speak to me as soon as I was awakened today August 8, 2001.
                        Now it comes to my mind today is the feast of St. Dominic.
                          Today we celebrate the feast of St. Dominic on August the 8th.
                            I was born on August 8, 1946.
                        On August 8, 1951 Fr. Carter entered the Jesuits. This
                        date is on his tomb stone over his dead body.
                            In the Church I attended every day and made my first
                        communion in and was married in, St. Lawrence in Price Hill,
                        Cincinnati, there are many stained glass windows. I attended
                        daily Mass as a child at St. Lawrence Church and during
                        high school. After my mom died my dad told us to go to
                        daily Mass. I received daily communion as soon as I could. 
                        I went there for weekly confession most Saturday afternoons.
                            The center window over the altar has the Sacred Heart
                        with the cup and the Eucharist above it. The big crucifix
                        hangs over the sanctuary. The Church is beautiful, a white
                        marble altar and big pillars with fruit accenting the pillars.
                        I went to lots of Masses there and daily communion.
                        I first received Jesus there in communion. In my ecstasies 
                        sometimes I would see my first communion and cry
                        because I was the little bride receiving Him then and
                        I wished that in all my communions in that Church I could
                        have known Him as I was experiencing then in the ecstasy.
                        There was a deep connection in some of my ecstasies to
                        that Church.
                            There are lots of windows in the Church, my brother said
                        his first Mass in that Church he is a priest. My sister
                        celebrated her 25 years as a sister in that Church.
                             There are many windows that line the walls on the
                        sides of the Church. There are two big high windows
                        above the confessionals. One window on the left of the
                        Church as you face the altar is St. Margaret Mary and
                        the Sacred Heart appearing to her. On the right side of the
                        Church the big high window is St Dominic and the Virgin Mary.
                            I studied these windows in the 8 years of grade school
                         when I went to daily Mass there. I studied the Sacred Heart
                        in the front of the Church to the right of the altar and the
                        big crucifix that hung over the sanctuary.
                            I made a visit to Jesus almost every day there when I walked up
                        the street to get the newspaper for my dad. We always blessed
                        ourselves when we drove or walked passed a Church
                        that had the Blessed Sacrament in it.
                            I love to go to that Church, St Lawrence, I feel so close to
                        Jesus there. I received the message November 9, 1993 the morning
                        I played a funeral for my aunt at St Lawrence.
                        This message is so important now to all of us.




Picture of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

Your Time Is So Short 

God's Blue Book I Cover

November 9, 1993 - 4:45a.m.

My dear child, you must turn yourself over entirely to Me. Oh, child, I am your Savior. Do not ever doubt Me. Always count on My being present to you. The days go by with such rapidness, you will soon be with Me forever in heaven.

    Everyone only sees each moment as it is occurring now. There is an end to all of this and your reward waits for you. It seems hard to think of this as ever ending, but time is so short, little one. Soon all this will be over.

    Fight a good fight for Me. You need to help all you can to know of Me. Keep remembering that these days will not go on forever, that this life is so short compared to all eternity.

    Some day you will truly be with Me in heaven. Your life is so short compared to eternity. Here today, gone tomorrow. All that remains is how you choose to live, for God or against God!

    You are responsible for all your time and your actions and how you live in service of Me. It sounds simple but people alive on earth in sin cannot see anything else but what they are doing now. Satan blinds you into thinking this life will go on and on when, in fact, it is so short compared to eternity, just a short while. It is so easy to see. Why do you get so caught up in this life here? It is so short. The batting of an eye, the dropping of a pin, and your life is over and eternity awaits. Do these short moments mean so much to you?

    Listen to Me, little one. Time is so short. My light is at hand. My time is so precious because it determines your eternal life. So short, indeed. Heed My word and listen to My voice. What you do, how you act, are so small when compared to eternity! This is no laughing matter. It is your soul that is at stake. It is your life forever and ever. Is a few years of life, holding on to such insignificant "stuff" worth all eternity? My life for you is so simple. Love God, love one another. Put Me first and all falls into line! So simple, but so hard for so many precious little ones. I tell you, until heaven and earth pass away, not one letter of My law will pass away.

    Here today, gone tomorrow, and I am your God. Come to me and all will be brought to light! He made the crooked ways straight and He nourished their souls. Listen. You do not know the glories that await him who serves the Lord. Hold tight to Me, little one. Hold tight to Me and receive a divine reward forever. May My name be exalted in heaven and on earth. The trumpet blares and the Lord ascends His throne. All know His glory. Their lives were not in vain who served Him while in their lives. Their rewards are as golden gems whose splendor no one can comprehend.

    Heaven and earth may vanish like smoke, but your deeds will not be forgotten. Store up treasures in the life hereafter by doing good works. Keep your eyes on your Father in heaven, Who waits and loves you so. All will be made open in the end and your life will be spent in the hereafter. What a reward for such a short test!

R. Oh, Jesus, praise to You from the heights. You are so good and loving. We trust in You and Your mercy. Alleluia. Alleluia.

Messenger:        I want to recall the words I heard when He showed me
                        the Heart on the front of Blue Book II. I had the vision

                        appeared on the building.


December 17, 1991



December 17, 1991 His Burning Heart

Messenger: I was alone in All Saints Church after Mass and Communion, in front of the tabernacle, when I saw the Sacred Heart. It was red around the outside, then a layer of yellow and then the brightest light in the center. I felt heat and it looked like an open furnace.

    I thought about it all day and it instantly gave me peace and warmth in my heart. This is the purpose of these letters--to draw hearts to the ardent on-fire love of Jesus. I received the following message that day:

    "Open your heart to the fire of God's love. He is ablaze in your heart. He wants to dwell in you and love you and others through you. Love God, yourself and one another and experience the fire set aglow in your heart and experience the warmth of His love."

Messenger:       The gift I write about today is this: God has
                        joined our hearts in a special way in the 
                        Shepherds of Christ Movement to help to bring
                        to completion the mission Mary began at Fatima.
                            As Father Carter would say
                            "Our hearts are merged" but we must be
                            open to let Him work in us. We must believe
                            He has called us to this special mission. What
                            we do here will affect so many souls in leading
                            them to His Most Precious Heart.

                          God has chosen us. We must believe and ask Him to
                        help us to be open. We must ask Him to use us all for
                        His honor and glory. We must ask Him to help us to be
                        the instruments used to help bring about the Reign of 
                        His Most Precious Heart.



Excerpt from the Spirituality Handbook


Mass and the Sacraments

    The best way to return love to Jesus is through participation in the Mass. Indeed, the Mass is the chief source for growth in our life of consecration. Everything in the life of the Church-including the sacraments-centers around the Eucharistic Sacrifice.

    All the faithful are privileged to be able to enter into the offering of the Mass:

    The sacrifice of the Mass, as we well know, makes truly present the sacrifice of Calvary. At His sacrifice on Calvary, Christ was Priest and Victim. We obviously did not offer together with Him. At the Mass, however, Christ, although He is the chief Priest and Victim, does not act alone. Through God's gracious design, at Mass all the members of the Church are priests and victims together with Christ. To be sure, there is a very significant difference between the priesthood of bishops and priests and the priesthood of the faithful. The point we wish to stress, however, is that the universal priesthood, given in Baptism to all the faithful, is a real participation in Christ's priesthood.

    Vatican II has stressed this concept of the priesthood of all the Church's members. Speaking of the Mass, the Council says: 'The Church, therefore, earnestly desires that Christ's faithful, when present at this mystery of faith, should not be there as strangers or silent spectators. On the contrary, through a proper appreciation of the rites and prayers, they should participate knowingly, devoutly, and actively. They should be instructed by God's word and be refreshed at the table of the Lord's body; they should give thanks to God; by offering the Immaculate Victim, not only through the hands of the priest, but also with him, they should learn to offer themselves too. Through Christ the Mediator, they should be drawn, day-by-day, into ever closer union with God and with each other, so that finally God may be all in all.'

    During all our Christ-like activities, we are living the Mass. Working, recreating, laughing, weeping, enjoying success but also experiencing failure, enjoying the beauties of nature-through all such activities, we are living the Mass. We are continually offering ourselves in loving conformity to the Father's will. From time to time during the day, we should make a conscious act of uniting ourselves and our activities with the sacrifice of Calvary as it is made present throughout the world through the Mass.

    A very precious time during the Mass is, of course, our reception of Jesus in Holy Communion. We should make the most of these special moments. Let's properly thank Jesus for coming to us with His Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity. Let's thank Jesus for the tremendous suffering He experienced in order to be able to give us the Eucharist. As Jesus dwells within us in this precious way at Communion time, the very Heart of Christ-this Heart which is symbol of His great love-dwells within. This Heart cries out for our love in return.

    One of the great means God has given us to help prepare ourselves for better participation in the Mass is the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Our Lady of Medjugorje asks us to go to Confession at least once a month.

    Indeed, we should use all available means to prepare ourselves for a more fruitful participation in the Eucharistic Sacrifice. It is a great privilege to be able to be present at, and to participate in, the Mass. We should show Jesus our appreciation for such a great gift by preparing ourselves as best we can, and in this way we will gain the greatest possible benefit from the Mass, both for ourselves and for others.

    Included in our devotion to the Eucharist should be our desire to make Eucharistic reparation. One way to do this is to say often the following Fatima prayer: 'Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, I adore You profoundly. I offer You the most precious Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Jesus Christ, present in all the tabernacles of the world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges, and indifferences by which He is offended. By the infinite merits of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and (the intercession of) the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg of Thee the conversion of sinners.10

    Besides saying the above prayer, there are other acts of Eucharistic reparation we can make. One of these is to be sure we make adequate thanksgiving after Mass. One of the intentions we should have at this time is to help make reparation for the lack of proper thanksgiving on the part of many. Pope Pius XII speaks about the duty of spending the proper time in thanksgiving:

    When at Mass, which is subject to special rules of the liturgy, is over, the person who has received Holy Communion is not thereby freed from his duty of thanksgiving; rather, it is most becoming that, when the Mass is finished, the person who has received the Eucharist should recollect himself and, in intimate union with the Divine Master, hold loving and fruitful converse with Him. Hence they have departed from the straight way of truth who, adhering to the letter rather than the sense, assert and teach that, when Mass has ended, no such thanksgiving should be added, not only because the Mass is itself a thanksgiving, but also because this pertains to a private and personal act of piety and not to the good of the community.11

Excerpt from March 7, 1999 daily message

Messenger:  On August 20, 1997, He appeared in the most glorious light, transfigured before me at St. Gertrude's Church in Cincinnati. I heard the Father speak and He said:

                     On September 22, 1997 I received this message.



From the September 22, 1997 message

Jesus speaks: "STIFF-NECKED, stiff-necked, stiff-necked. There will be a new heaven and a new earth. The old order will pass away. For they worshipped Me with their lips only and their hearts were far from Me.

    I will rock the earth and bring the senseless men to their knees. They will learn to beg ‘LAMB OF GOD, YOU TAKE AWAY THE SINS OF THE WORLD, HAVE MERCY ON US!"

    Their thoughts are far from me....

    I am the LAMB OF GOD. I AM THE BRIDEGROOM OF THEIR SOULS -- of a country of stiffs, naked in their ways, their hearts are haughty, for they persist in their same ways.

    They are resistant to change. They refuse to go to the Heart of My Mother, yet she is their Mother and Mother of the Church.

    Oh, to a world of stiff-necked.... I give you this message. Look at My Body on the cross, it was broken and mutilated, it was constrained, it was the picture of torment and twisting.

    I speak through these messages and you continue in your stiff-necked ways. Would the destruction of your temples bring you to your knees? Or should I destroy My own houses? Or would they get the message anyway, if I burned them down?

Messenger: On September 26, 1997 the Basilica with St Francis 
                        and St Clare Fresco was hit by an earthquake.
                    Two other strong messages were given. 
September 6, 1997 I received a strong message and that 
                        day I saw the Sacred Heart transfigured at Morrow.
Also the second strong message of October 8, 1997 
                        I include here. Included below.
We were instructed not to publish certain parts. 
                     On October 7, 1997 Tuesday, a letter was written to Fr. Carter but did
                        not reach him yet.
                     When Our Lord gave me the message October 8, 1997 we did not
                        understand certain parts of the message until Friday October 10, 1997 
                        when Fr. Carter received it. Then he understood the message I received
                        October 8, 1997. We were instructed to omit certain parts for publication. 
                        On October 7, 1997, the Feast of the Holy Rosary, the day the letter
                        was written, it was the only time I did a live rosary and did not receive
                        a word from heaven.
                     It was strange for the message was one of silence on the Feast of the
                        Holy Rosary when all were gathered at Morrow that Tuesday night.
                    All this happened and we did not understand any of it until Friday
                        when Fr. Carter received the letter of October 7, 1997.
                        October 7, 1994 the Song from Jesus was given.
                    Fr. Carter was diagnosed with cancer, opened up September 22, 2000,
                        3 years to the day after the stiff-necked message.
                     Included here is the parts of the message October 8, 1997 we were
                        permitted to publish.



Message from October 8, 1997

Jesus speaks: Seedless, barren, not bringing forth fruit on the vine. I come to be heard and who pays Me heed. To a people of stiffs I address this issue, what think you when the water is gone from the trough?

    Do you think you will then worship the molten calf or will you be ready for surrender then?

    Oh, you thankless race, anger and wrath is the mind of your God. You do not worry, My messenger, for I am God and I speak to you. You think you are alone and I have chosen you. Your money is your god, oh people of Zion - your money in the pockets is the sound that brings you joy.

    What brings Me joy is the songs of the faithful, praising and worshipping God, but I go to the tent and there is the molten calf and an abased nation of stiffs, heartless and filled with fear. I beg of you to stop now before it is too late, but you do not know of the chastisement I have in store for you - it is under the plan of the Father.

    The children who walk in darkness carried a molten calf in their arms and the God of justice struck the earth.

    He struck you, senseless people, because you would not listen.

    I did not put you on the earth and then leave you to yourselves. I dwelt amongst you to guide you in all your ways and the people today spit on Me as they did 2,000 years before. For all these years I waited for the likes of you, My people, and why should you have more time for false joy? Joy is not in the molten calf. It is in the words of the Savior.

    My Words are your truth, yet you try to wash them away as hearsay and of no importance.

    My Word is the Word of God mighty and true. I have been ignored and defiled in My Word. I smite you, My senseless race. I allow the dragon to devour your young for you are the senseless race. I allow the dragon to devour your young for you are the senseless children of Eve.

    Debased, proud and dead, really dead in your hearts.

    I give you sunshine and rain and you want flowers and glory.

    The glory is Mine or I will have to continue to listen to the wailing widow, a barren branch, a company of stiffs.

    Ignore Me no longer senseless ones. My hand is upon you. It will come down and wipe out the senseless virgins, the ones singing to the molten calf.

    Rachel could hear the slaughter of her children and she wept such bitter tears. The Lady Clothed as the Sun bore the barren race; they did not come to her grace-filled womb.

    The thankless race marched into a pit of doom and destruction.

    As I was pressed in the garden watching the days at hand, as I was squeezed, what came forth from My pores was the saving Blood for the children of Zion and when they ate from the land they feasted on rich food and strong drinks, the candy of the earth and it made them sick - sick to the death of their souls and the Lady Clothed as the Sun heard the cries of her sick children. I give you the medicine for the sick children in these writings and they chase you and make you fall to the ground. I watched you skin your knees when you carried the scrolls that contained My letters of love, My words from the depths of My Heart. You fell as I once did on the way to Calvary. I fell, I skinned My knees, My Body burned and I got up and went to the end.

    The end was the beginning for the children of Zion for at that hill My cross was planted erect, a tree of life, and the juice that was squeezed 'till there was no more from the one "Son of Man, the Son of God", was the juice of the Man. It was His saving Blood.

    They pressed Me in the Garden of Olives and I bled for the thankless race. They hung Me on a tree on the hill of Calvary. When I gave them the New Eve they chose the molten calf. They spit on My Mother, they ignored the visitations. She came and gave to the children to remind them of their covenant with God.

    Oh senseless ones, so many will now fall, for I hung there and to the right was one and to the left another. The one was saved; the other was cursed. You picked from the tree when you should have obeyed your Father. He gave you His will. He said, "You may eat of all the trees in the garden but not this one." and you continually ate of the forbidden fruit. I warned you, My children, and you chased My messengers and made them run. I gave to you My Book of Life, My Bible, and you ate the sick fruit and it made you so sick you wanted to die but you kept eating when I told you the end was near and now that the end has come, what do you say for yourself? You ignored the Lady Clothed as the Sun. She appeared in all glory and splendor and so many months later so few go to her site to even see her. So is it My fault or yours our money does not come to publish your books and tell the world about the Woman in Florida? It is not My fault, I am God. I am the faultless One.

    You want joy. I have no joy for the likes of you, My children of Zion, you have usurped My thrones and treated My body as rubbish. I am God. I come in the Eucharist and I am ignored. I speak no longer. The days that follow will be the days to cleanse this earth.

    I am angered beyond all anger for the way My Mother has been treated in Florida by the thankless race. They have worshipped the molten calf and ignored the Lady of Light, the Lady Clothed as the Sun, the Lady of Fatima in the Americas, Our Lady of Guadalupe, bringing forth her children. The good will suffer with the bad; the wheat will be separated from the darnel (weeds). You walked like little stiff men with your haughty hearts. Your heads were your gods. I gave you great minds to comprehend My mysteries and you used your minds to worship false gods and make movies that defile My priesthood. What of your minds? I do not even have energy to tell you how unworthy you used the mind, the intellect I gave you. You used this great faculty to commit the worst sins, and My head was crowned with the sharpest thorns for your sick earth. Oh, you squeezed the Blood from the Son of Man. You pressed that Man in the garden, when He knew this race of this day.

    I now see the Woman on the building, My Mother, so loving to the children I gave her and the mean ones threw acid on her face. Oh, you race of vile hearts and thankless ways. I will clothe the holy ones in the white robes of glory. The thankless ones I will turn over to the red men that will hand them over to the keeper of the pit and their bodies will be burned in the burning sulfur of the pool of death. Come, My children of light, your Mother called you through the consecration. She showed you the way home to My Heart. She carried a lighted lamp and lighted your way in the darkness. You were not foolish like the virgins that carried a lamp without a light. Your light for the lamp was My life alive in your hearts. When the darkest night comes you will know the flames of My love alive in your lighted hearts, burning with the fire from the love of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I give you the fuel, My faithful virgins. I gave you the fuel to light your lamps that in the dark night that lies ahead, you will still shine as a beacon light, a light of intense brightness no matter how dark the night. You will not die for your refuge is the fire of the Sacred Heart and you gave your heart to the New Eve, the pure and Immaculate One and she took you to the Heart of your Savior. She took you home and you dwelt within the chamber of My Heart and you were protected from the evil one in these last days. You tried to spread this consecration. It is the key that leads to the place of refuge. So many camps the devil told men to prepare and they labored in vain, for the Word was had in dwelling in Our Hearts. You would find refuge and they missed the message and busied themselves with the work of the evil one.

    I say to you what refuge survived when Noah built his ark? Only those on the ark survived the great flood. You prepare your earth. When My Word was to prepare your hearts. Then again, they worshipped the church building, the grounds and the wood and their hearts were left as cold vaults. I beg you, My beauteous ones, to beg the men to prepare their hearts before it is too late. Only the Ark of the Covenant will be the means of survival in this dark age. When the moon turns to blood they will run away frightened and their buildings will be like cold vaults - only the hearts consecrated to Our Hearts will survive.

    You were willful and too busy to know the story. The story is this: There is but one home; it is the Heart of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. My Mother is the gatekeeper. It is through her Immaculate Heart you enter. She is the singular vessel, a New Eve, a Woman Clothed as the Sun, a doorway to the everlasting abyss of Light, the Light of the World, the Sacred Eucharistic Heart of the Son of Man.

    There was not room for Me in the Inn and there is not room for Me in the hearts of many and what can I say - they will die. I gave them the book of life. I gave them the Man who hung on a tree to save them. I gave them Myself, truly present in the Eucharist, the Eucharist and My Word I gave them. I gave to them My Mother - the way to enter into My Heart and they were haughty and proud. I was born in a stable in Bethlehem for you, My men. I am the Light of the World. The foolish virgins had no oil for their lamps and they went out. And you could hear the wailing cries of her children being slaughtered in the dark night. Oh, the Lady Clothed as the Sun warned them to come to her heart and the Heart of her Son (the Light of the World) and they went to the molten calf and they died a brutal death.

Revelation 22: 6-21

    The angel said to me, ‘All that you have written is sure and will come true: the Lord God who inspires the prophets has sent his angel to reveal to his servants what is soon to take place. I am coming soon!’ Blessed are those who keep the prophetic message of this book.

     I, John, am the one who heard and saw these things. When I had heard and seen them all, I knelt at the feet of the angel who had shown them to me, to worship him; but he said, ‘Do no such thing: I am your fellow–servant and the fellow–servant of your brothers the prophets and those who keep the message of this book. God alone you must worship.’

     This, too, he said to me, ‘Do not keep the prophecies in this book a secret, because the Time is close. Meanwhile let the sinner continue sinning, and the unclean continue to be unclean; let the upright continue in his uprightness, and those who are holy continue to be holy. Look, I am coming soon, and my reward is with me, to repay everyone as their deeds deserve. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. Blessed are those who will have washed their robes clean, so that they will have the right to feed on the tree of life and can come through the gates into the city. Others must stay outside: dogs, fortune–tellers, and the sexually immoral, murderers, idolaters, and everyone of false speech and false life.’



    I, Jesus, have sent my angel to attest these things to you for the sake of the churches. I am the sprig from the root of David and the bright star of the morning.

    The Spirit and the Bride say, ‘Come!’ Let everyone who listens answer, ‘Come!’ Then let all who are thirsty come: all who want it may have the water of life, and have it free.

    This is my solemn attestation to all who hear the prophecies in this book: if anyone adds anything to them, God will add to him every plague mentioned in the book; if anyone cuts anything out of the prophecies in this book, God will cut off his share of the tree of life and of the holy city, which are described in the book.

    The one who attests these things says: I am indeed coming soon.

    Amen; come, Lord Jesus.

    May the grace of the Lord Jesus be with you all. Amen.

Messenger:     They blocked the apparition of August 13, 1917 at Fatima.



Excerpt from
The Spirituality of Fatima and Medjugorje

Because of the excitement caused by the apparitions, the civil authorities were so alarmed that they kidnapped the three young visionaries and put them in jail. The incarceration period included the day of August 13. Consequently, Our Lady did not appear to the children on this particular 13th.

The authorities, fearing reaction on the part of the people, quickly released the children. Mary appeared to them on August 19 near Valinhos:

She told them she was greatly displeased by the action of the mayor. As a result, the miracle promised for October would not be as impressive as originally planned. (15)


1. 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).

Mary's Message from the Rosary of August 27, 1996Sorrowful Mother

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 Note from the President of Shepherds of Christ:

If you are devoted to Our Lady's rosary, we need your help! A member of our ministry is very devoted to Our Blessed Mother and he is helping to teach us how to grow our volunteer rosary makers. He estimates that we will need approximately $37,000 this year for beads alone! This translates into 22,339,500 rosary beads (yes, 22 million beads) assembled by volunteers into 378 thousand rosaries. The biggest users of our rosaries are the Catholic schools, who requested more than 100,000 rosaries last year.

Can you help us? I appeal to you for funds, whether large or small. We give because we love God, we love our Blessed Mother, and we love souls. We will accept gifts in many forms, besides cash or check donations, we can receive gifts directly in the form of stocks or property. These gifts can offer large tax advantages to the donor and increase the monetary value of the gift to us. Also if you can help assemble rosaries we need your help! If you can help us in anyway, please call or write us. God Bless!

I love you,
John Weickert




A rosary can be used to pray for healing. It is powerful to unite our prayers to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and pray through the powerful intercession of Our Lady of Clearwater.

In times of trouble, for special prayer, we can use our rosary and pray as follows.

A Rosary for Healing or for Someone with Cancer.

On one Hail Mary bead or as many as you desire, say: 

May God heal                     through the intercession of Our Lady of Clearwater in union with the Mass and all the Masses being celebrated around the world.

Pray the Hail Mary or Hail Mary's then pray this after the Hail Mary.

May the cancer be uprooted and thrown into the sea.

We believe with all our hearts.

After the Glory Be — pray the following petition.

May                     be healed through the intercession of Our Lady of Clearwater if it be the holy will of God.

Note: You can look at Mary on the image rosary while you pray this rosary.

Note: The above section can be printed out from a PDF file, and you can pray the rosary looking at the pictures.


December 17, 2000, Mary speaks:

    Rosary Books and the
    prayers my Son gives to you.

This is a gift we give you.
All the revelations are gifts given to you.
