September 16, 1998

Messenger: I want His life alive in me. I live to have a greater sharing in His life. I want Him, I long for Him, I love the secrets He reveals about Himself in great intimacies with Him. What is life? Life is not life if it is not rooted in Him. I want my life to be so intimately united to Him as I live and dwell in Him. In every act I perform, I wish a greater depth of living in Him. Every Mass and Communion brings me closer and closer to Him. I love the Mass so much.

Jesus speaks: On this September 16, 1998, I ask you to come deeper and deeper into My Heart that you will know more and more the love I have for you. I ask you to pour out your hearts to Me. I ask you to give your hearts to Me and My Mother Mary so that I can help you more and more.

I love you,

(Shepherds of Christ Publications asks you to please pray for the current writing of the next priests' newsletter.)

A Prayer for Intimacy with the Lamb, the Bridegroom of the Soul

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. I love You. I adore You. I worship You. Come and possess my soul with Your Divine Grace, as I experience You most intimately.

6:00 a.m. Mary appeared the Lady of Victory

Mary speaks: If you listen to me and obey me and the messages of my Son, Jesus, you will have a great victory.

Pray that the Blood of Jesus be spread on the earth.

My children, consecrate your Church and your world to Our Hearts.

Pray the 6:20 prayers.

SONG: Night is Over

Messenger: And they heard the cries of the Sorrowful Lady and their lives changed, for they knew God spoke to them.

Oh, it was so simple to follow the Lady of Fatima's pleas and to listen to the Divine God, but the obstinance that the evil one created blocked the minds to see.

Mary speaks: Oh, my children, please listen to me.

Exodus 7:8-13

Yahweh said to Moses and Aaron, 'If Pharaoh says to you, "Display some marvel," you must say to Aaron, "Take your staff and throw it down in front of Pharaoh, and let it turn into a serpent!"' Moses and Aaron went to Pharaoh and did as Yahweh had ordered. Aaron threw down his staff in front of Pharaoh and his officials, and it turned into a serpent. Then Pharaoh in his turn called for the sages and sorcerers, and by their spells the magicians of Egypt did the same. Each threw his staff down and these turned into serpents. But Aaron's staff swallowed up theirs. Pharaoh, however, remained obstinate and, as Yahweh had foretold, refused to listen to Moses and Aaron.

Messenger: Unite with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass going on around the world at every second.

Far worse is the mother that watches the children die a spiritual death.

2 Maccabees 7:1

It also happened that seven brothers were arrested with their mother. The king tried to force them to taste some pork, which the Law forbids, by torturing them with whips and scourges.

2 Maccabees 7:20-23

But the mother was especially admirable and worthy of honourable remembrance, for she watched the death of seven sons in the course of a single day, and bravely endured it because of her hopes in the Lord. Indeed she encouraged each of them in their ancestral tongue; filled with noble conviction, she reinforced her womanly argument with manly courage, saying to them, 'I do not know how you appeared in my womb; it was not I who endowed you with breath and life, I had not the shaping of your every part. And hence, the Creator of the world, who made everyone and ordained the origin of all things, will in his mercy give you back breath and life, since for the sake of his laws you have no concern for yourselves.'

2 Maccabees 7:27-29

Bending over him, she fooled the cruel tyrant with these words, uttered in their ancestral tongue, 'My son, have pity on me; I carried you nine months in my womb and suckled you three years, fed you and reared you to the age you are now, and provided for you. I implore you, my child, look at the earth and sky and everything in them, and consider how God made them out of what did not exist, and that human beings come into being in the same way. Do not fear this executioner, but prove yourself worthy of your brothers and accept death, so that I may receive you back with them in the day of mercy.'

Psalm 126

Song of the returning exiles

When Yahweh brought back Zion's captives
   we lived in a dream;
then our mouths filled with laughter,
   and our lips with song.

Then the nations kept saying, 'What great deeds
   Yahweh has done for them!'
Yes, Yahweh did great deeds for us,
   and we were overjoyed.

Bring back, Yahweh, our people from captivity
   like torrents in the Negeb!
Those who sow in tears
   sing as they reap.

He went off, went off weeping,
   carrying the seed.
He comes back, comes back singing,
   bringing in his sheaves.

Mary speaks: Beginning September 20, 1999, is the last 9 day period of the end of the second 108 day novena.

Pray fervently to St. Michael, St. Gabriel and St. Raphael and all angels for special protection and to fight the evil one for you, in your families, in the Shepherds of Christ, and Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center, the Church and world.

Also pray fervently to St. Therese of the Child Jesus and your Guardian Angels.

Excerpt from front of Blue Book I.

Picture of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

It is in acceptance of all that is before you that you grow in your relationship with me.  Do not try to throw back the opportunity for grace you receive.

Child, I am ever by your side and I am ever teaching you.  Accept all things as happening from Him Who loves you.  Know that My hand is in everything you are experiencing.  I am vigilant and by your side.  Nothing happens to you that I have not consented to.

Words of Surrender of a Soul

Words of Consecration to God

Today Lord, (today's date), I give You my entire will-

I give You all my liberties, I want to love and serve You as You desire.

I surrender myself to You.

I ask You to run my life.

I ask You to help me act like You, Jesus, and like Your Mother Mary.

God, this day I consecrate myself to You.

I am  (name) , Your beloved child, guide me on my way now as I go about my day (or if in Church) as I leave Your Eucharistic presence.

The following Imprimatur is for the Prayer for Union with Jesus and not the message above or below.

Prayer for Union with Jesus

Come to me, Lord, and possess my soul. Come into my heart and permeate my soul. Help me to sit in silence with You and let You work in my heart.

I am Yours to possess. I am Yours to use. I want to be selfless and only exist in You. Help me to spoon out all that is me and be an empty vessel ready to be filled by You. Help me to die to myself and live only for You. Use me as You will. Let me never draw my attention back to myself. I only want to operate as You do, dwelling within me.

I am Yours, Lord. I want to have my life in You. I want to do the will of the Father. Give me the strength to put aside the world and let You operate my very being. Help me to act as You desire. Strengthen me against the distractions of the devil to take me from Your work.

When I worry, I have taken my focus off of You and placed it on myself. Help me not to give in to the promptings of others to change what in my heart You are making very clear to me. I worship You, I adore You and I love You. Come and dwell in me now.

-God's Blue Book, January 17, 1994

Jesus speaks: My children,

Do not go it alone. Give yourself to Me.

Live your life of Consecration.

Unite to the Mass in everything you do.

My apostles, you need to go to daily Mass and spend an hour before the tabernacle if you are an Apostle of the Sacred Heart of Jesus for the Shepherds of Christ Movement.

I ask all to spread these cards to everyone.

Jesus speaks: Also, spread this card.

Jesus speaks: These two cards when used by the faithful in nursing homes, and all places can help to bring down great grace for the priests, the Church and the world.

Pray the prayers in My booklets for healing and oneness.


Jesus speaks: Please put here the 13th promise from the message given to the founder from Jesus.

The 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."

Jesus speaks: If you want deeper union with Me, I promise to give you the greatest graces when you pray the prayers I have given in My prayer manual.

The more you pray for the priests, the Church and the world and consecrate your hearts to Me and to My Mother, the more you will go into a deeper love union with Me in My Heart. Live every moment as My bride.

This is what St. Paul says:  and yet I am alive; yet it is no longer I, but Christ living in me...(Gal. 2:20)

Offer your lives as a sacrifice united to the Mass with consecrated hearts.

A sacrifice is an offering. Laying down your life and living according to My Father's will is most pleasing to your God.

Offer up all you do as a sacrifice for souls.

Jesus speaks: The more you go to the Eucharist, the more My desires will be your desires. You are saturated by My grace when you go to Mass and receive Me and sit before the tabernacle.

The more you do this, the more you will be one in Me.

I want you to spread My little cards to nursing homes.

If you are having trouble spending your time daily before the tabernacle, read this message placed at the end of the message today. Blue Book I, August 28, 1993, "Come to My Tabernacle".

I give you a quote from another message I gave to you in Blue Book I, November 24, 1993, "His Kingdom Awaits".

Excerpt from Blue Book I.

Picture of the Sacred Heart of JesusHis Kingdom Awaits (excerpt)

God's Blue Book I CoverNovember 24, 1993

Messenger: Oh, Lord, Lord, I want to serve You. I want to do your work.

Jesus speaks: Then do My work. You don't do it in the end. I do it for you. I want this work accomplished, and soon. I will go before you. I will prepare the way. I will open the doors. I use you to do this for Me. Are you willing to serve Me in love and to know the treasure you hold. Read My messages so you will better serve Me. I call, you come. I do the work. You labor and toil, but I have a plan and a way to do it. I only need servants to work My plan. Will you serve Me with love and treasure My works? Do you know how much love you can give to Me and your brothers through this work? I will make your loads light. He that serves the Lord will inherit His kingdom. This reward cannot be bought. It is gained by the love in your hearts.

(End of excerpt from Blue Book I.)

Jesus speaks: We have given you the rosary and the consecration as a great help to lead you deeper into the spiritual life.

These two together will help bring peace to the world.

Excerpt from September 17, 1999, Daily Message.

September 17, 1994 - Holy Spirit Center - 7:00 a.m. - First Message

Messenger: Jesus, I hear your gentle voice say, "I will never abandon you" and I see your lifeless Body held by Your Mother.

Looking at the Pieta:

This, Jesus, is true love. You gave Your very own life for me. I see Your dead Body. This is a reality. You died for love of Me. I see Your Body strung out in Your Mother's arms. I see her weeping face holding her beloved Son. I see You, Jesus. You gave Your all, even to death. You, Oh Jesus, gave Yourself to Your very own death for love of me!

Jesus speaks: I give you life in Me child. It is through this life you are raised to new life. I am the Way. I am the Truth. I am the Life. This period of dryness is ended by this period of realization. I am God. I am Jesus. I gave My life for love of you, My dear, dear child. Come and be with Me, alone with Me My beloved one. Be alone with Me in your heart. When you wonder and worry, I am forever with you alive in your heart, loving you with such love that you do not fully know.

I never abandon you, My beloved one. I never go from your side. I am forever loving you with the most intense love at this moment.

Oh, My child, let go of it all and let Me caress you. I will hold you forever in a pocket in My most tender Heart. I am He Who loved you to My death. Hearken to Me and love Me. I never ever leave you. I love you consistently with the same intense love as the day I died for you. This, child, is My love for you.

Song: We Have Been Told

September 17, 1994 - Second Message

Jesus speaks: This, child, is the 17th. No meeting today? I want you to have a meeting whenever possible on the 17th. It may be changed for a good reason, but I would like the 17th.

This is a special day for the Blue Book. I pour out My special gifts to all who work on these messages. I want My beloved ones to read My intense letters of love.

Anyone who helps My letters to get out will be blessed abundantly by Me. I love each child so dearly.

Tell all to pray every day in union with the Mass. Pray for all your bothers living and dead. It is your prayers that will make the difference. Pray for all who read My messages that they will grow in their knowledge and love of God. Pray for them, pray for your brothers.

Strive to be more like Christ in all your actions. Meditate on My rosary as We have shown you. Lead others to pray the rosary with such fervor and love.

Your hearts will grow in peace and joy as you grow in your union with God. This is the purpose of your life, to be forever drawn closer to My most Sacred Heart through the tender Heart of My Mother.

I love you each so much, My beloved ones. I am with you in a special way this day. I love you with the most tender Heart. I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus, so closely joined in love with My beloved Mother. It is through her Heart and the leading of the Holy Spirit that you will be led so closely to My heart and to the Father.

This is the mystery of life. Union with Father, Son and Holy Spirit through Mary's tender Heart. The more you grow in this union, the more your peace and joy increase.

Pray to God to release all the gifts you need to have greater knowledge and love of Him.

Pray to the Holy Spirit to lead you through Mary's Heart.

Pray, pray, pray. I love you so. I am Your loving Jesus.

Song: I Have Loved You

Excerpt from Blue Book I.

Picture of the Sacred Heart of JesusCome To My Tabernacle

God's Blue Book I CoverAugust 28, 1993

My precious child, I long to be with you. I am here. You must find a way to be with Me every day in front of the tabernacle. If others distract you, you must find a way.

Satan is trying to stop My time with you. I am your true love and I long to spend time with you each day. Hold tight to My face. I am here little one. Don't ever doubt that again. My words are simple. They are truth. No one knows My intense love for them. I long for these moments with you. I am indeed here. If you have to come and be with Me during the day, I want these moments with you in front of the tabernacle. I am truly sitting here with you, Body and Soul.

I am Jesus, Son of the living God. Never doubt Me again. I have made myself known to you, My child. You offend Me so with your doubt and your busyness on other matters. You spend time fuming and fretting and feeling sorry for yourself when I am waiting here to be with you and talk to you. I don't care about other matters. I am very jealous. I want this time every day. You feel so bad inside when you are not alone with Me in church. That is where your comfort comes from. You are so upset inside when you do not spend it here. Don't you know these things? Being home is not the same. I am truly present in the tabernacle. You needn't run anywhere. You have a key to the church. I love you. I don't want to remind you that this is where it all is. I want you to love Me so much you don't even think you can function without time alone with Me in church. Come to Me every day. You do not go a day without food. You can't go a day without time absolutely alone with Me. If you do, it will be a disaster. Have you not felt the gnawing in your heart when you didn't do it yesterday? You crave this time alone and your tears are from not being alone with Him Whom you truly love.

I am Jesus Christ, Son of the one true God. I have chosen you to write these messages which are meant for all and you are busy-doing what, My child? Did you not cry and feel bad most of yesterday? This is your proof. You knew you wanted to be with Me here so badly you almost drove back out. You have to be alone with Me. In front of the tabernacle is best. I am the living God and I am in the tabernacle. You must be here or you will be so lost inside. Spend time with Me, My child. Nothing else matters. I am the one, true God and you shall not have other gods before Me. I command this because this is how you were created and this makes you most happy. Come to Me all you who labor and I will give you rest. I will give you peace, not as this world gives you peace, but My peace, which only I can give.

The gift I give to you, My child, is My Son. Would you refuse My gift? He waits for you every day and where do you go-to the grocery?- to do your wash? What do you do, child?

I am waiting for you. Would you keep Me waiting and turn your back? Is one hour too much for the Son of God? I give you 24 hours. One hour is so little to ask. This is where your peace lies. All else is fruitless.

Not one day should be spent without one hour of private prayer with Me, preferably in the church in front of the tabernacle. Come to Me My little babies. I want to comfort you. I want to care for you. You are all mixed up with your priorities. I grow tired that you don't listen and tell others of My great and glorious love for all My children. This is your main goal. Pray with Me and spread My intense love for all My children. Yes, and I will give you all you need, child. Quit thinking you have to do other things. You have to be with Me and I will make it all work out. I want all to know of My intense love for My children. I died that you might live, not in this world, but in the world to come. I am the way, the truth and the light. All else is useless if it is not rooted in Me and for My work. Time is very short, little one. Listen to My words. You have wasted enough time. Don't delay. All must know of My love for them. It is in Me that they are made whole. Nothing else matters, My child.

This is the message for the children's Juniors Sunday night.

Excerpt from Blue Book III.

Picture of the Sacred Heart of JesusGo to Jesus-He Loves You

God's Blue Book III CoverMay 15, 1994
For Children

Messenger: He sits in the tabernacle and He hears all that goes on about Him. He longs for you to come and spend time in adoration and love. He is God, truly God, and He awaits you with such love.

Churches are full. How is your heart to behold the Son of God? Are you anxious to be here? This is God, child. Are you ready to be in His house?

He sits here in the tabernacle with such love to give. Do you genuflect when you walk in front of the tabernacle. Do you realize that the same Jesus Who died and gave His life for you is there? Oh, how He waits for you to come. He waits with such eagerness for you to come and tell Him you love Him.

He wants you to know He is in Communion. He loves you so. He comes to you inside of your body. He loves you so. He gave the priest the power, through the Holy Spirit, to change bread and wine into His Body and Blood so He could be present to you, Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity, in the Eucharist. Nothing you ever do here on earth can compare to receiving God inside of your heart. He is a real Person. He is with you this day, the same Jesus Who died on the cross.

He loves you so much! He would die this very day just for you alone. Think of a friend that would die for you. It is hard to share part of our delicious cake with a friend. He gave His life for you because He loved you so much.

He asks only two things of us: to love God and love one another. He wants us to love each other so much that we would give our all for each other. When someone is hurting and being mean, he needs our love more. He doesn't need us to be mean to him.

God is asking you to love your friends today. When they are mean, don't argue with them. See the creation of God the Father in them and pray for them. Your prayers and sacrifices can stop wars. Pray the rosary. It is so powerful!

Remember always: God truly loves you! When you feel unloved, go to Jesus. He is always waiting for you with love. Mary is your mother. She mothers you the same as she mothered Jesus. Pray to her.

Excerpt from Newsletter Issue 3, 2000

    And here are further words of John Paul II to priests: "Dear brothers: who have put your hand to the plough and do not turn back, and perhaps even more those of you who are doubtful of the meaning of your vocation or of the value of your service: think of the places where people anxiously await a priest, and where for many years, feeling the lack of such a priest, they do not cease to hope for his presence. And sometimes it happens that they meet in an abandoned shrine, and place on the altar a stole which they still keep, and recite all the prayers of the Eucharistic Liturgy; and then, at the moment that corresponds to the transubstantiation a deep silence comes down upon them, a silence sometimes broken by a sob... so ardently do they desire to hear the words that only the lips of a priest can efficaciously utter... So deeply do they feel the absence of a priest among them!... Such places are not lacking in the world. So if one of you doubts the meaning of his Priesthood, if he thinks it is ‘socially’ fruitless or useless, reflect on this! 42

Messenger:          I attend Mass yesterday which a priest from India celebrated.
                         He talked about Our holy Mother under the cross. I cried so
                        hard inside. I saw Mary as she appeared all those times
                        as the sorrowful Mother. I remembered her when she delivered
                        the messages about the Finding in the Temple.
                            When she appeared, it was made so clear to me through 
                        words and interior revelations the deep, deep love Mary has for her
                        children. They wanted me to experience the sorrow of the heavenly
                        Mother through revelations. She knew from the prophesy of Simeon
                        that a sword would pierce her heart. Mary stood beneath the cross
                        of Jesus and the emotions in her heart were so many faceted. 
                        Sorrow so deep to watch her Son suffer and yet joy to know that
                        the children of the earth would be so affected by the death of 
                        her Son.
                            From the apparitions of Mary to me daily, I know this: I
                        know of the deep, deep love she has for her children here
                        below and she wants them to be forever in heaven. Mary and
                        Jesus spoke in the rosaries Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and
(in a red rosary book 

September 16, 2001 message continues

Messenger:      also a second book of many pages 
                        now available Volume II, but the Red Rosary book was
                        mostly received during her daily visits July 5, 1994 - September 5, 1995.)
                            I would receive very many strong rosaries from Jesus
                        and Mary on the Tuesday night Shepherd of Christ Meetings
                        at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center, especially in the Sorrowful
                        Mother Chapel.

                            We see the deaths of this horrid experience, of our fellow
                        Americans we love so dearly, we mourn deeply inside
                        the agony of this tragedy.

                            Christ agonized in the garden at the loss of so many
                        souls despite His agonizing passion and His death on
                        the cross.

                            Mary cried out to me in those rosaries to reach the
                        souls. She said souls were falling into hell like rain.

                            Even after the daily appearances my own agony
                        was so great as I went to Immaculata daily and
                        received special revelations there. Father Carter told
                        me Our Lord wanted me to go there before the Mass
                        I went to. I went there at 12:00 noon everyday. These
                        accounts are in the Mass book.
                            At times I felt as if I could barely stand the pain
                        of not being able to reach the school children as
                        Mary had asked me to do daily those last nine months
                        she appeared with the rosary and consecration. I felt
                        as if swords were piercing my heart and sometimes my
                        left shoulder and side would hurt continually and I felt
                        it was so painful I could hardly stand it.
                            And They continued to reveal to me the agony about
                        the souls going to hell.

                            We can see the devastation of this occurrence
                        filled with death and our own grief is so great to see 
                        the people dead and to mourn with their loved ones.
                            Can we not see the anguish of Mary who loves us
                        much more perfectly than any earthly mother when
                        she tells us about the souls of so many of her children
                        going to hell because of their sins.

                            Then I ask you to hear the message of Mary as she
                        delivered it at Fatima and remember the vision she
                        gave to 3 small children of hell.

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)


12. 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).

Messenger:         This is the Message Mary wanted with her vision in
                        Florida and she wants the tape with this message on
                        it circulated to all people that go there. They play it 
                        continually at the image site. This message should be
                        given to everyone that goes there. I received the directions
                        to make the tape December 12, 1996 called Mary's Message.
                        It was the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe. Jesus and Mary
                        told me to put this on every tape. "Jesus and Mary requested that
                         this tape be made and circulated on Dec. 12, 1996 the Feast of
                         Our Lady of Guadalupe." Mary appeared on the building five 
                        days later December 17, 1996.



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.

Excerpt from September 5, 2001 Rosary - Clearwater, Florida

The Ascension

 Message after the glory be:

Jesus speaks: 

                        Oh My children, it is love, 
                         it is love that I desire, 
                         and yet you are caught up in so 
                         many of your things, in your ways, 
                         and what you must do. 

                       And you cannot control all the events 
                         in your life no matter how hard you try, 
                         and I am teaching you every day, 
                         more and more every day. 

                       I am teaching you in the trials that you 
                         are permitted to undergo. 

                       And many times, the very lesson that I 
                         want to teach you, you do not learn, 
                         for you try to alleviate the suffering or 
                         the trial that I send to you, and I have to 
                         send it again and again and again. 

                       Oh My children, if you want the reign of peace 
                         there must be peace in your own hearts. 

                       You must seek for peace. In consecrating 
                         your hearts to My Heart and the heart of 
                         My Mother, you will live more and more 
                         in peace. 

                       Let go and surrender. 

                       The rule I give to you tonight is to let go 
                         and surrender, to pray the Our Father 
                         and beg God to help you to be able 
                         to live in His will, to pray for grace 
                         that you will know more and more 
                         what God's will is for you, for this 
                         will bring you happiness. 

                       It will be hard on you to live your life, 
                         if you are at the helm and you are trying 
                         to do it your way which is against God's 

                       Many problems that many have are because 
                         they want things their way and they will not 
                         surrender nor accept the things the way 
                         that God wills them to be. 

                       And yet it is the way to happiness, 
                         and say with all your heart, 

                       "Our Father Who art in heaven, hallowed 
                         be Thy name, Thy Kingdom come, 
                         Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. 
                         Give us this day our daily bread and forgive 
                         us our trespasses as we forgive those who 
                         trespass against us and lead us not into 
                         temptation but deliver us from evil, Amen."

September 16, 2001 message continues

Mary speaks:     Listen to His words and live by them my children,
                        live to love your God and one another, obey the
                        commandments, live by His Word, obey the
                        Holy Father in Rome and do all that you can to
                        pray for peace. I ask you to pray the rosary daily.
                        My heart is pierced for my children that will lose
                        their souls. My children, I love them so dearly.
                        I appear to deliver this message to you. As a nation
                        I ask you to pray for the souls of my children. I ask
                        you to attend daily Mass when possible and pray
                        before the Blessed Sacrament. I ask you to consecrate
                        your hearts to my Immaculate Heart and tell you how
                        important it is to give your heart to my Son's Sacred Heart.
                            Make my Son Jesus the King and center of your
                            He is your King.
                            You must live to please Him.

Messenger:     During her apparition



Given August 5, 1995

Excerpt from the August 5, 1995 Rosary, The Coronation
  1. Mary speaks: My dear children, I am Mary, your Mother and I tell you how Satan is pressing down on this earth. He is causing confusion and division in your hearts. He is keeping you focused on problems and keeping you from your deep union with my Son. Come to my Heart and let me protect you in my motherly love. Give all your cares to me. I am guarding your children, and guarding your lives. I am your Mother of love. More than any earthly Mother, I love you!

    You must surrender and come to Our Hearts for the days ahead will be hard and dark, and as Satan is pressing on you this day, he will press harder tomorrow. You must learn to put aside the distractions, the confusion, the division in your hearts and come to my Heart with a heart that is humble and filled with love. Satan talks in your mind and causes you to be upset. Let go, my little children. I am Mary, your Mother. I am appearing as Our Lady of Light to show you the way is the way through Our Hearts, to the light. Within your heart you will have a light that does not flicker. It is constantly burning, in deep love. You must not give in to the distractions in your mind.

    Come to the tabernacle. My Son will give you all the answers. (Messenger: She is alive in the statue). He is waiting for you to come, come and sit in silence and let Him work in your heart. You will know what you are to do. You must come to the tabernacle. You must come to Mass and Communion. It is there you receive abundant graces from Him. You will be filled deeply with His life. Do not be filled with fear, be filled with hope and joy and pray to the Holy Spirit to give you His wisdom to know the will of the Father. (Messenger: She is alive in the statue - gorgeous).

  1. Mary: As you see me here before you, you know I am with you in all of your trials and all of your struggles. You must discipline your thoughts and come to my Son. It is through the Eucharist that you will be strengthened for all your trials.
  2. Song: Immaculate Mary

    As the rain falls, so too many sufferings will fall around you. You will not be harmed, for I am protecting you with my motherly mantle. You must surrender and come to Our Hearts, be with my Son Jesus, deeply united in your hearts. Meditate on the presence of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit within you. Pray for the grace to know and love God more. Pray to the Father, in union with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, in the Holy Spirit, through the powerful intercession of the Virgin Mary.

    Pray all through the day and offer all of your actions to the Father with your petitions in the morning. I am Mary, your Mother. You are being guarded and I am appearing to you to deliver this message - that your hearts will be quieted and you will be about the work of the Father in spreading the love of my Son Jesus into this world. The Immaculate Heart of Mary will triumph and the Sacred Heart of Jesus will reign. You should pray for the spread of the devotion to Our Two Hearts, and consecrate yourselves to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary every day.

I am Mary, your Mother, and I am guarding you.

Excerpt from September 5, 1999 message

Messenger: On September 5, 1995, I did a rosary before the Sorrowful Mother statue at a Shepherds of Christ meeting there (at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center). I was on retreat and felt immensely connected to God. My daughter video taped it.

On the Feast of the Sorrowful Mother, I was told to watch the video. A mist went over Mary. An audio tape is available concerning this information and a video tape of the mist. The audio tape is October 1, 1995, Love Songs and Messages. The video is A Mist Around Mary.

I sang, I Love You Jesus. I talked about the Trinity. The mist began in the lower right corner and went over Mary and ended there with I Love You Jesus.

I wish a copy of the words of the rosary be printed here while the mist was covering Mary. They are very important to Mary and our Lord.


September 5, 1995

Song: Oh burning Heart, Oh Love divine, how sweet You are to me. I see the Host, I know You're here to love and care for me.

  1. Messenger: Be with Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane, kneel beside Him, see the rocks, see His brown hair and His beautiful face. This is Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Be there and feel His presence and as you feel His presence, realize the presence of the Almighty God within your hearts: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. At this moment you are surrounded by Their divine love and your heart is burning within you as you kneel beside the Almighty God.
  2. We do not realize how close He truly is to us, that He wants to be one with us, through Him, with Him, and in Him, that He calls us to this union, to this oneness with Him. As we meditate on the mysteries of this rosary, let us unite in this oneness with the Almighty God Who cries from every tabernacle in this world - cries out deep cries of His burning love and they fall on deaf ears - Who comes to us and gives us Himself in the Holy Eucharist and is ignored and forgotten and treated with such indifference.
  3. Jesus Christ, the Son of God, Who waits in all the tabernacles of the world in the Sacrament of greatest love, waiting a prisoner for His beloved souls to come and to be with Him. As present as the day that He knelt in the garden, in His Divinity and His Humanity, He waits in the tabernacle and we kneel before Him in front of the tabernacle, as we imagine that we knelt next to Him in the garden. This is the love that the Almighty God has for us. He remains with us this day and is forgotten and ignored. He calls out to His beloved souls, "Come to Me, you are blind and you are deaf, you do not know the great gifts that you are given. I am waiting and waiting for you to come. Come to Me, My beloved souls, I long and thirst to unite in deepest union with you."

    We search this barren desert for things to fill our starved souls, when nothing on the face of the earth will fill the starved soul but the love of God and He is waiting and longing and thirsting for us to come and to be with Him.

    Oh, beloved Jesus, truly present in the tabernacle, give us the grace to realize this great gift we are given, to cherish every single moment that we are in the presence of the Almighty God, to never take this for granted, to thank You endlessly for the great gift You have given to us, the gift of Yourself, that You are truly present, the gift that You give us in the Holy Eucharist, and Your Heart was in such anguish in the garden, your Heart of deepest love for all the souls that would treat You with such indifference and negligence. Your Heart of burning love is so often ignored and forgotten. My precious One, let me help make reparation to Your adorable Heart for all that you suffered in the garden for Your beloved souls who have forgotten You.

Song: Oh burning Heart, Oh Love divine, how sweet You are to me. I see the Host, I know You're here to love and care for me.

Messenger:        Mary appeared every day. I saw her and so did another woman.
                         Here is one of the accounts from August 1, 1995.
                        "Mary is gorgeous, she is so illuminated and so beautiful.
                        The whole corner is filled with light. There is a pink-like hue all
                        around. She has been this way, I can't even tell you how
                        it is. Here is the message at the end of the rosary that day.

Mary is Crowned Queen of Heaven and Earth

Messenger:     The soul is created by the Father to know and love

                        Our lives here are in preparation for our life

                        The Eucharist is such a gift God gives us.



Revelation 12: 1-2

Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman, robed with the sun, standing on the moon, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. She was pregnant, and in labour, crying aloud in the pangs of childbirth.



Messenger:        Let us reach for the stars. Our soul craves
                        the love of God and only that will satisfy our

                            Going to Their Hearts and dwelling there is our little
                        heaven on earth. The earth may rock and the sun may
                        cease to shine and the stars fall from the heavens but
                        within our hearts, inside of us, we will have peace
                        and joy for we will know the presence of the 
                        Almighty God within us.

Mary speaks:     My dear ones, the times ahead will be dark and hard.
                        You must unite closer and closer to Our Hearts.
                        Satan is pressing down and distracting you to 
                        keep you from your work of spreading Our love.
                            You must focus on the love of God and move
                        steadfastly ahead. Put aside distractions that
                        satan has created and know how strong he is
                        at this time and how he is pressing down.
                            You are being tormented in many ways,
                        through your health and little incidents
                        that are occurring in your lives.
                        Know that I am Mary your Mother and
                        I am forever by your side protecting you
                        and guarding you.
                        Do not give into the irritations and the sufferings
                        you are going through.
                        You will have thorns and roses.
                        Know that in all your sufferings if you
                            stay rooted to Jesus, they can lead you
                            into a deeper union with Him, deeper
                            and deeper than you have ever experienced
                        As you suffer enduring them according to God's
                            will and offering them up as a sacrifice, 
                            you can help to bring down great grace 
                            for the world. 
                        You will know Jesus more and more and partake
                            more fully in His life if you stay rooted in Him.
                            You must focus on the great gifts that you are 
                            given. You are given gifts that are very special
                            my chosen ones. They were given to help you
                            to do the task that you are being called to do, 
                            to go into this world to spread the love of 
                            Our two Hearts.
                         You are chosen my sweet adorable children
                            and you have answered the call. I am 
                            Mary your Mother and I am guarding you
                            and loving you and holding you close
                            to my heart.

July 5, 2000


end of September 16, 2001 message



September 16, 2002

Messenger:     I looked up to see the big white
                           tank, the rust was plain
                           around its upper rim —

                        I was deeply united to my God
                            remembering the heights of ecstasy
                            I had experienced, the 
                            times of deep fullness and
                            almost being there again as
                            I recalled them and their
                            grandeur, anticipating how
                            wonderful indeed would be
                            the moments of deepest union
                            with Him in heaven.

                        It is funny how deeply I can experience
                            a moment when united in deep love
                            to Him and others.

                        The words are deep and it is always
                            there for me, experiencing an
                            eerie sulken, almost purple
                            morning, one in which the color
                            of day seems to hang in
                            a sky far off with a misty white
                            fog in front of me. 

                        It is the kind of morning that
                            takes me to Him, like standing
                            at the entrance of a tunnel,

                            but it is as if you stand at
                            this place on this earth below
                            and see into the future - where
                            at the end of the purple 
                            morning you will be embraced
                            by this Divine Light and 
                            united to Him, your Beloved,
                            your all, all that you have
                            sought and seek for now.

                        But in the morning light which was
                            purple and dark, it has
                            lifted now and I feel a
                            special awareness of Him
                            in this too.

                        My awareness of Him is constant,
                            my connection to heaven and
                            the saints and those who have
                            passed on is such a reality to
                            me at every moment. 

                        I long for those moments in the Mass
                            when I go there to the Church and
                            unite in the celebration and
                            then I receive my God.

                        My heart is always longing for Him.

                        My heart is always feeling that
                            lack of completeness I long
                            for in Him.

                        I am here in this place, at this
                            time and yet it truly is
                            as one on a bus in transit.
                            I am on a journey and always
                                aware of my destination.

                        Depth, I want greater depth
                            in my life in Him.

                        There is always that open door,
                            that long tunnel, that
                            endless place I can go.

                        Even in hearing His word, I enter
                            into a place that is always open —
                            my heart is excited and wanting
                            to go so deeply into that open
                            place, experiencing more deeply
                            the one I love, the ultimate
                            mystery, the All Powerful,
                            All Loving God.

                        Oh I can barely scratch the surface
                            of knowledge of Him even in
                            my attendance at Mass.

                        I know the whole thing is so
                            great - at Mass - I know
                            more the greatness of Him and
                            this vast universe and 
                            the heaven and all I do not
                            even see. It is all so
                            real to me, but my
                            experience seems so very
                            shallow knowing that I can 
                            experience it deeper and deeper.

                        Oh, I feel as St. Theresa, my thoughts
                            are always of Him, my life lived
                            for Him, my desire to be His
                            bride are always before me, my
                            desire to be complete in Him
                            forever constant and yet
                            the Eucharist and His word
                            feeds me so much.

                        When I read His word I long to
                            go deeper into it — it is
                            always open and I am
                            always longing for a deeper
                            experience when I hear it
                            or read it — to experience
                            Him and my love for Him
                            ever more.

                        My thirsting is so great for
                            completeness in Him — 

                        I am in that deep and dreary
                            desert land, here below.

                        I am like one man walking on the
                            dry, sandy, desert thirsting, 
                            longing for water.

                        I am hungry, like one who hasn't
                            eaten for years —

                        I know why God kept saying for 6 weeks
                            "feed the hungry", "feed the hungry."

                        I am hungry, I am longing for the
                            fullness I know I can have
                            only in Him, in heaven.

                        Comfort, to unite with each other
                            in this mission — each of us
                            so deeply united to one another
                            and to Him.

                        And yet I do not want to sound as if
                            my life is not lived in joy,
                            for He gives me others to love,
                            to have so deeply in my heart
                            and there is an incompleteness in
                            that love I experience with them.

                        There are moments when I can ponder
                            the love I have for others and
                            for the saints and for God
                            and the very thoughts of it
                            are thoughts of deep joy and
                            longing for completeness and
                            greater capacity to love deeper and
                            more like Him and experience
                            every moment in the joy of
                            being more deeply united to
                            Him and to all.

                        Oh I may sound like I ramble on but
                            I do so because as Fr. Carter always
                            taught me "it is ineffable."

                        The purple skies lift, the tunnel is
                            always there, my life is not
                            given to me to spend in 
                            contemplation like this all day
                            and yet it is this that helps to
                            quiet my heart hungering for
                            Him and the grandeur of heaven,
                            of knowing Him more fully, of
                            being enlightened by Him to know.

                        Every day comes with a dress —
                            some days He dresses in a purple hue —
                            some days wear a deep blue —
                            some a golden light —
                            others a reddish glow of a burning
                            most may appear as a whitish,
                                milky haze with the polluted
                                air —

                            every flower He paints, He tends to
                                the detail of the smallest flower—

                            the little things in its interesting
                                centers so we can gaze upon
                                it and know we never see
                                all there is to see in it —

                            look at the earth —
                                can your eyes behold the grandeur
                                    of it all —
                                do you see every leaf of the giant
                                    old oak tree —
                                could you study its bark alone for 
                                    a thousand years —
                                could you bring out your microscopes
                                    and enlarge it
                                     and when you have done so, do you see
                                    a tiny creature lurking in a small
                                    pore of the bark, with little antlers
                                    or wings and little feet.

                            I stand at the door of the tunnel and
                                I look and I know there is
                                so much to see and to know
                                and I thirst for it, I hunger
                                for the knowledge of Thee —

                            Oh Holy Spirit enlighten me and give
                                me the eyes to see, for my
                                eyes feel they are coated with 

                            On September 5, 2002, it rained and yet 
                                the colors of the image before me, as
                                it changed very rapidly — right
                                before my eyes —
                                I know the blue of the sky and the 
                                blue of the water, but the blue of
                                Mary's gown was a mystical blue
                                of depth I cannot describe, nor
                                ever saw before or may never 
                                see again. It glistened with a silver-
                                golden lining and a depth of 
                                precision I cannot describe.
                                I can see the blue of man-made things
                                and it is just that man-made plastics
                                etc, but to see the gown of Mary
                                changing before me as painted
                                by God, it was awesome and
                                after seeing it, it quickly changed
                                to a deeper golden gown but
                                I saw it so very distinctly and
                                clearly and it had a depth
                                that was to me, inexhaustible and 
                                not ending.

Messenger:        The golden fire color where Jesus'
                                face was came in that corner
                                and it was more gold than I 
                                ever saw.

                            Oh I saw this before my eyes and 
                                it was not static, nor did it 
                                appear contained, nor can I describe
                                it here for it was deeper than the
                                pane of that glass to me, it was a wonder
                                to see more than any movie one
                                could watch of the waves at 
                                sea, it was in its own way, a
                                deeper blue that did not end, it
                                was mystical and I cannot even
                                begin to explain it.

                            And I looked into His eyes and I saw
                                Him before me in the pain He
                                gave me, there was this sweetness
                                in the quiet moment of pain —
                                a sweetness of knowing God
                                and knowing which I hold
                                so dear is real.

                            My heart is quieted only by Thee.

                            The rustling and bustling cars go 
                                by on the busy freeway
                                and within each person
                                carries their own thoughts
                                and experiences and they live 
                                in a world of the unknown.

                            I see the lightning steel across the sky
                                and I can barely make out the 
                                building tops and trees, the 

                            It happens so quickly — He lights
                                the night for that split second.

                            We live in a sort of night here below —
                                we do not see the picture so
                                clearly — He lifts the veil and
                                gives us quick glimpses,
                                just to see a little of it —

                            Oh our vision is so limited and 
                                there is so much to see —

                                there is so much to know —

                                there is the quiet world in all of
                                    us —

                                a world we can never completely
                                    share with anyone but Him 
                                    and He knows it better than ourselves.

                            I do not know the condition of my kidneys
                                or my gall bladder or my inner
                                ear —

                            Oh the magnificence of God —

                            He knows all things —
                            He created the world and all its creatures —

                            He is Divine

                            We are human

                            He is Supreme

                            We are His creatures

                            He knows all things —

                            We know a little —

                            The Magnitude of God —
                                He cannot be measured 
                                He is — 
                                He is All Perfect —
                                He is Unchanging 
                                He is God

                            Oh I long for Him — to know Him —

                                to know His works —

                                to know the whole design —

                                to love more deeply —
                                    more completely —
                                    with the great capacity
                                    I will have then —

                                how foolish we are to think I 
                                    can see the end —

                            Oh He can not be contained
                                He is God. 

                            Little children have a whole
                                world to discover, all the beauties
                                of God.

                            Why do we want to show little
                                children dark movies?

                            Their eyes are bright —

                            They, when living in a family of
                                love, are looking with
                                eyes of wonder and 
                                the desire to know.

                            Little children, babies, little
                                toddlers are so open —
                                wanting to know.

                            We can fill them with love and
                                tell them about God.

                            They are like an empty vessel
                                ready to be filled.

                            The man at church came up to me
                                and told me of all the killings
                                in Cincinnati and terrible things
                                going on in the world.

                            In the Church a woman came in 
                                during morning Mass and was
                                sleeping in the bride's room
                                on the floor with blankets.

                            There so much darkness.

Message of October 5, 1995

Sorrowful Mother Statue at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center

Mary speaks: I am Mary, your Mother. This is an urgent call to you at the Center and the Shepherds of Christ Movement. I have appeared as Our Lady of Light for 14 months daily at the Center. I have given to you special rosaries to be circulated among the youth and for all of your devout souls to be drawn closer to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. These rosaries are an important part of the fulfillment of Fatima.

I have called a special rosary on the 5th of each month in honor of the 5 wounds suffered by my Son and the 5 blasphemies suffered to my Immaculate Heart. I have called and called for all to follow the promises given at Fatima for those who honor my request to pray on the First Saturday of the month. I am calling out an urgent plea to answer my call. I have appeared from April 5th, until September 5th, at the Center, six appearances. The first rosary received in the Sorrowful Mother Chapel was March 17th, a very important rosary, received before the exposed Eucharist. I requested the rosary be prayed in the presence of the tabernacle. On March 21, 1995, a special rosary was prayed before the Pieta at the Shepherds of Christ meeting. Many of my children saw events at that rosary. On March 30, 1995, I came in a special way, the corner was filled with a tinted film and I was adorned in such light and alive. At this time I requested the rosary be prayed in the Sorrowful Mother Chapel. The rosary was prayed there for the Shepherds of Christ meetings and many nights. This continued for six months. On September 1st, I gave a very special rosary at 12:00 noon, Friday, a time my Son requested that the rosary be prayed at the Center. Rosaries were given on most Fridays at 12:00 noon. Very tender rosaries of my Son's special love for His beloved souls. I want published a book of these rosaries received on Friday at 12:00 noon. I want published the first book of rosaries with all the rosaries already discerned. In this book, you should include pictures of the windows in the Rosary Chapel, the love songs given from my Son, Jesus, the Seven Sorrows and the messages I have specified. The second book of rosaries should be all of the rosaries received during the Shepherds of Christ meetings. These rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary were given to teach chapter members about Our lives. They are to be spread to this world. They will lead the hearts of your members to my Heart and the Heart of my Son. A book should be published as soon as possible for rosaries for children. I have given many children's rosaries, and the early rosaries were given for children. These rosaries should be used in the Junior Shepherds of Christ Movement.

We have given to you thirteen books. Many answers to your problems are in these books. These books, God's Blue Book and Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary are an important tool to draw souls back to the Church. My Son is so wounded by the indifference and neglect given to Him in the Eucharist.

The Center will light up this world, for many of my messages and my Son's messages were received there. The rosaries were received at the Center. The hearts of many will be filled with the love of God when you circulate these rosaries.

I call out to you. I will continue to come on the 5th of each month. The time was changed at Our Lady of the Woods for I have requested that the rosary be prayed close to 6:30 p.m.

Your Center will remain divided. The funds will come when these rosaries and love letters are circulated.

The funds for the Shepherds of Christ will come when you circulate and publish the books and tapes. I have given to you information about these books. My Son has requested a book of messages given after the daily Masses. These messages will lead many to a deep union with God during the Mass.

You are given great gifts in these messages. Satan has confused and tried to stop these messages. These messages need to circulate. They will lead many to God. I beg you with my motherly Heart to please listen to me. Today is a special day, this October 5th. This is my message to all, to help circulate these messages. Pray earnestly for their circulation and publication. Pray for the funds to help you circulate the books and tapes. The tapes will help many in hospitals, nursing homes. Pray for the funding and it will come.

Many other messengers will come to confuse the importance of these messages. SATAN wants these messages stopped. When they are circulated, my Son will unite deeper and deeper in such oneness with many hearts. These will be the soldiers that will carry His love to this world. Unless these messages of His love are transmitted in the Church, the Church will continue to suffer.

I beg you to listen. I am Mary, your Mother. Many of my little children will go to hell. You hold personal messages from Our Hearts and Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

I am Mary, your Mother, and thank you for responding to my request.

From the Apostles Manual

Message from October 5, 1996

Mary speaks: I am Our Lady of the Rosary. The Fatima message will unfold around the Shepherds of Christ Movement. I am begging you, please, publish these Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. I appeared daily for 14 months and delivered rosaries for the world. Why have these rosaries been held back from this world? Souls are dropping into hell. Do you comprehend the importance of these rosaries to the Fatima message?

I have appeared as Our Lady of Light and Our Lady of Sorrows delivering these rosaries.

I am now delivering this message as Our Lady of the Holy Rosary.

A great mission I give to you, my beloved apostles in the Shepherds of Christ Movement is to live these rosaries and spread the messages to the world. You must reach the world with these teachings I am giving in the rosary.

On this October 5, 1996, I beg you as your heavenly Mother to not ignore the importance of these rosaries. I have appeared, I have begged, I have warned you. I cannot hold back the hand of my Son any longer. His hand is struck with power.

Today is the 5th of the month, first Saturday. I beg all to study this message and to tell all that come on October 13th, 1996 the importance of these live rosaries and the completion of the Fatima message.

I am Our Lady of the Holy Rosary. This is the key to watching the Movement spread. I am assisting you in publishing and circulating these rosaries. Anyone who stops the rosary messages and meditations will deal with my Son, Jesus!

Souls are at stake and souls have been lost because of the delays to hold back the messages in God's Blue Book and Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. Any negative references in the Movement to these messages displeases my Son for you have been given the greatest gifts in these revelations. I am asking all to help in the circulation of these rosaries and messages. We are communicating to the world majorly in these messages. The completion of the Fatima message is greatly dependent on these messages. Do not give into Satan any longer to block these messages. You are dealing with my Son, Jesus. This is a great gift given to the world. It would please my Son greatly if you expressed to Him your great thanks for the gifts He has given to you. Your answers are found in these messages. They must be studied and recognized for the great gift they are. You were chosen by God to deliver this message to the world. The ingratitude of many displeases my Son greatly. It is now time for the leaders of the Movement and all apostles to support these messages. It is now time to study the content in its entirety. You are missing the key directions because you do not even read the messages.

I am Mary, your Mother. You will be rewarded with the funds needed when you publish these messages and rosaries.

Messenger:        Mary appeared to me every day for 14 months.

                            I suffered deeply especially those last 9 months

                                for the message Mary wanted was for us to 

                                reach the school children with the school

                                rosary program.


                            Many do not understand how important it is we

                                reach the children as Mary has asked us to do

                                with the school rosary program.


                            Jesus clearly told us we must reach the Church,

                                the schools and the family.


                            The Priestly Newsletter is for the priests.

                            We pray for the priests, the Church and the world.

Excerpts from the Apostles Manual


October 21, 1996
Message given through Rita Ring

Jesus: On the 13th of each month I will give special messages concerning the spread of the devotion to My Sacred Heart. I beg you to come if at all possible. The time is short and it is urgent that you comply with the requests of Our Lady at Fatima.

The rosaries and consecrations must be taken to the school children. The apostles must go to the churches and try to establish prayer chapters in the churches with the Prayer Manual. You must publish the letter concerning the benefits of consecration in parishes and churches. You are focusing on the devil's distractions and missing My messages. You are to encourage the family to consecrate their hearts to My Heart and My Mother's heart.

I am operating in the Shepherds Movement for the renewal of the Church and the world. I beg you to circulate the monthly tapes of the 13th and to encourage attendance on each 13th. Please, the time is urgent. All members of the Shepherds of Christ Associates must encourage the priests to study the newsletters. I am communicating to the priests and sisters and brothers in the newsletters.

You will be one flock and their will be peace when you follow the requests of Our Lady at Fatima. She is the Queen of Peace. She is Mother of the Church. She is not honored and loved by many of her beloved priests sons. She is your Mother. Without properly recognizing her, the Church will not be as she should be. You must, My beloved apostles, spread the consecration to the following institutions: The schools, the Church, and the family.

You are My shepherds. You are shepherds of Christ! You are carrying My messages into the world. Oh, how Satan will attempt to stop you. He has attempted to block the Fatima message.

I beg you to come on all 13ths, if possible, and to listen daily to the live rosaries. A few moments each day will keep you focused on this mission. Please, the souls of many are dependent on your fervor and love.

Come to Me and I will refresh you and I will give you rest. I am the Lord, your God. There will be one flock and one Shepherd. I am calling you to lead the stray ones home. It is in consecration that hearts will be holy hearts. Please, this is an urgent message. This is to you, My beloved shepherds.

Messenger:        Here is another message from Jesus from October 27, 1996.


October 27, 1996
Message given through Rita Ring

Jesus: I am sending you, My apostles, to spread the consecration in the churches, the schools, and the family. Go to the churches and try to set up Shepherds of Christ Prayer chapters. Encourage as many as possible to join the Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart. It is in fervent prayer that the Shepherds of Christ Movement will spread and many hearts will give themselves to Our Hearts.

Dear apostles, you must reach the children in the schools with the rosary. Use the aves and give them the consecration cards and the letter that I will dictate to you.

Please encourage members in the chapters to pray the prayers with their families, especially the Holy Spirit Prayer and the consecration prayers. These should be prayed aloud daily with the family, either before meals or with the family rosary. The family that prays these prayers will be united in a strong way and will withstand the attacks of the devil.

The Church is the good grazing ground. This is My sign to you. I am Jesus. My sign is these revelations I am giving. From studying these revelations, you will know I am truly speaking here. I am directing you as My apostles, to help bring about the renewal of the Church and the world. When the stray sheep are lead back to the Church, they will be fed with My Body. They will feast on rich pastures. They will be fed with the Bread of Life.

The prayer chapters that form in the church will influence the priest. They will fervently come to the tabernacle and pray for their parish. It is absolutely essential that the associates encourage the priest to read the priestly newsletter. When priests are living the consecration to Our Hearts the people will be richly fed by the Eucharist and will be receiving the great benefits given through the sacraments administered through the holy priests. You have not tapped into the fountain of grace that pours when a holy priest is administering the sacrament.

My grace will pour copiously and they will feast on My life flowing through the sacraments.

R. Oh, fountain of life that flows upon the people. Give them the grace to consecrate their hearts to Thee. And there will be one flock and one Shepherd.

Jesus: They will be one in Our Hearts and feasting on the Bread of Life with the greatest fervor and love.

R. Oh, Holy Mother, the Church, we long for the reign of the Sacred Heart and the triumph of the Immaculate Heart. There will be holy, holy priests and His Heart will reign in all hearts of both priests and people and the world will know the fire of His love.

It will spread like wild fire across the earth and souls will be filled with love and His life.


The Birth of the Full Ministries of the Shepherds of Christ

"I wish to share with you part of a message which Jesus gave us on October 13, 1994. The message tells us about the expansion of the Shepherds of Christ Movement:

'My beloved priest-companion, today I come to you with another mission. I am asking you to establish Shepherds of Christ Ministries. At My request you have already begun the priestly newsletter, Shepherds of Christ, and the prayer chapters, Shepherds of Christ Associates...

'I am giving you this message on this day, the 77th Anniversary of the Great Apparition at Fatima, because of the close connection between the Shepherds of Christ movement and the Fatima message. The Fatima message is centered in devotion to My Heart and My Mother's Heart, especially in consecration to Our Hearts. Shepherds of Christ Ministries is also centered in devotion to Our Hearts. I will use Shepherds of Christ Ministries as a great instrument in helping to bring about the triumph of the Immaculate Heart and the reign of My Sacred Heart. When this occurs, My Church and the world will be experiencing the great era of peace promised by My Mother at Fatima.

'Today, then, October 13, 1994, the 77th Anniversary of the Great Apparition at Fatima, marks the birth of Shepherds of Christ Ministries. I pour forth the great love of My Sacred Heart to all. I am Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the flock.'

Jesus has told us that Shepherds of Christ Ministries includes: the priestly newsletter, Shepherds of Christ, Shepherds of Christ Associates prayer chapters, various publications, including books, whatever else Our Lord directs us to undertake.

As members of Shepherds of Christ Associates, you are an extremely important part of Shepherds of Christ Ministries. You have given great joy to the Heart of Jesus by responding to His invitation to become members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. As He draws you closer to His Heart and to His Mother's Heart as Associates members, He will fill you with an ever-increasing experience of His love, peace, and joy."

Contact Priest

Do we want peace? Then we must do as Mary said at Fatima: we must consecrate our hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

When the priest gives his heart to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, he becomes one in Their Hearts and he offers a most holy sacrifice. He becomes one in Their Hearts.

When the people give their hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, they become one in Their Hearts and they offer a most holy sacrifice.

The priest and people are united in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, they become one with Christ in a very deep way and an immense amount of grace is poured out on the priest and people, the Church and the world.

Do you want peace and unity in your parish? Do you want the most abundant grace to flow in the Mass? Then say this simple consecration before Mass with the people:

Jesus and Mary, we love You. We give ourselves to You. We consecrate our hearts to Your Hearts. Dear Holy Spirit, enlighten and strengthen us. We give You ourselves.

Contact School

Do you want peace in your school? The Blessed Mother said at Fatima that until a sufficient number of people give their hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, we will not have peace!

How do we give our hearts to Jesus and Mary? Before school each day, say the small prayer to the Holy Spirit, the small consecration prayers to Jesus and Mary, and the morning offering (all available from Shepherds of Christ at no cost). Each time the children enter a classroom, say the consecration and Holy Spirit prayers. This binds the children in one heart with Jesus and Mary and there is less disharmony.

Contact Family

Do you want peace in your family? Then you should do as our heavenly Mother said at Fatima. Mary said until a sufficient number of people consecrate their hearts to Jesus and Mary, we will not have peace.

If we consecrate our hearts to Jesus and Mary, we are in one heart and there is not discord. We must do what Mary says if we want peace.

Family Consecration: We consecrate our family to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. We give ourselves to Them. We love You, Jesus. We love you, Mary. We give our hearts to You. We pray our family is a family of love, modeled after the Holy Family.








with the
the Priestly Newsletters,

and the Prayer Manual




The Priest Newsletter and Prayer Manual are the heart of our material.

Jesus gave the following message on November 3, 1996:

Title: Contact the Priests


This is what you should say when you speak to the priests:
"Do you receive the Shepherds of Christ Newsletter for priests?" (if not) "Would you like to receive it?  It is published six times a year.   Many priests have replied telling how much it helps them in their spiritual lives and their ministry as well."
(Both for those who are receiving newsletters and those who are not)
"Here is a brochure explaining all the various activities of Shepherds of Christ Ministries."
(Send to us the names and addresses of the priests who wish to be added to the mailing list)


Jesus: It is through the holy priest celebrating the Mass and administering the sacraments that immense grace will be outpoured on the earth and the fire of my love will cover the earth. 

The Newsletter for the Priests and the Prayer Manual are the heart of all materials distributed by the Shepherds of Christ Ministries.

It is your responsibility as a Shepherd of Christ to contact the priest and tell them about this.  I am Jesus.  It is through the Shepherds of Christ Movement I will greatly renew the Church.  I am writing this newsletter through Fr. Carter to reach My beloved priests.  Your personal contact with the priest will encourage them to study the newsletter.

My priests will be led to My Sacred Heart and the heart of My Mother through the Newsletter.  My people will be fed through My holy priests.

This is an urgent message to you, My apostles.

Consecrate Your Churches, Home, and Workplace
to Our Hearts

Message given through to Rita Ring

Jesus: I want you to consecrate the human race to Sacred Heart of Jesus. I want to be enthroned in all homes, churches, and businesses.

June is the month of the Sacred Heart. I want to be king and center of all hearts. I will keep My promises given to St. Margaret Mary of Alacoque. I promise all this from My most Sacred Heart. Consecrate your chapter to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Consecrate the church or room in which you hold your meeting.

Today is First Friday. I want you to circulate the message I gave to you on consecrating your homes to My Sacred Heart. Make booklets available for people to be able to consecrate their homes and businesses easily. Use the message I gave to you when you consecrated your home.

The Sacred Heart of Jesus will reign and the Immaculate Heart of Mary will triumph. Consecrate all homes and businesses to Our Two Hearts. Tell all to have displayed and honored, pictures of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary. May and June are the months of Mary and the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Tell all to consecrate their homes to Our Two Hearts. I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus. On this day, the 5th of May, 1995, First Friday, I request that you spend the next two months encouraging all to do this consecration.

Gather your friends and say the prayers I have instructed you to say. Sing "To Jesus Heart All Burning" and "Immaculate Mary." May these Two Hearts of love give all members of the human race peace, joy and love in their hearts.

R. Jesus said He desires to be honored by men in the Blessed Sacrament.

Jesus: Circulate the Blue Book messages. They promote this devotion. How My Heart is filled with happiness by the souls who come to the tabernacle and sit with Me. I am Jesus Christ, I wait and long and thirst for My precious souls to come. The souls of men have turned cold. I want souls to come to daily communion and be with Me in front of the tabernacle.

Men's hearts have turned cold. They do not know what love really means. I want hearts that are filled with fire for love of God. Men's hearts have turned to stone.

You are to promote devotion to My most Sacred Heart. I want hearts that burn with love for My Heart. It is through Me that you will know the Father's love. I am the Way, I am the Truth, I am the Life.

Offer a holy hour for the indifference, ingratitude, and sacrileges committed against Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, the Sacrament of His greatest love.

R. He promises great graces to those who give reparation to His Sacred Heart and who tell others about offering reparation to Him.

Picture of the Sacred Heart of JesusI Am In Control

September 16, 1993

Jesus speaks: My child, I am here in all this muck. Yes, you are tried and I spit you out. You know Who has the power. You know whence you are coming. All life is indeed rooted in Me and from Me comes all that is. Do you comprehend this, My child? Do you know that no life is there without Me? People think they have power. Oh, they believe they are in charge. There is no power except through Me. If I choose to forget you, you cease to be. Cling to this power. Cling to Me as you follow the celebrity or the king or the Pope. I am God. I am One, I am True, I am Omnipotent, I am all that is. You must stay fixed to Me like glue, child.

Child, no life exists without Me. Turn your lives to Me, precious little ones. Turn over every minute, every second of every day. You think you have control of your life. You silly, silly children-what control? I make the stars shine, the sun shed its light, the moon light up the night. I make the baby in the womb, the trees grow, the animals live-and you say, "Oh, Yes, I can do all things." Little one, you can do no things unless I give you the power. You cease to be without Me. Oh, how silly you indeed are, little ones, to fret and fume and look for your answers. What are you doing? Live, child! I give you your answers in My times. All works as I have planned.

You and your willfulness! You mess things up and then come to pray. What is in your heads? Let your hearts be directed by My spirit. Come to Me first, every second. Then you never run amok, you do the right thing always. Pray, fast, look for My answers. Spend your time alone with Me, not in deliberation in your heads. Oh, ye children, what, what do you do to yourselves? I am here by your side. I am present truly in the tabernacle and you go to each other and ask your questions. When will you submit yourselves to the will of the father? Why do you wander in blindness in this barren desert?

Come to Me and I will give you rest. I will give you all you need, little ones. You are so silly. Power-you have none, child. You are powerless. You are willful. You must stay fixed to Me and My ways. Oh, oh how do I make you understand when you won't listen to Me? I speak, you don't listen. I love you so. I want you not to suffer your own dilemmas, but you turn your backs and ask your questions of those no smarter than you. Your wisdom comes from Me, the one, true God.

Come, little ones, My will for you is not a secret. You have to break the code. It is here. I make it known to you. "In the silence comes His word to the poor and lowly ones in pain." I am all you need, little blind, scared children. You need not be any of these things. Come to Me, beloved little ones, and I will set your toes on the right road. You will not falter. You will run and not get weary. You will indeed fly on eagles' wings and I will be there telling you all you need to know.
