Messenger:         We still owe for the printing of
                                the last Newsletter.

                            We owe $48,000.

                            We must pay the payment for the
                                Virgin Mary building $9,935.80.

                            We are desperate for funds.

                            Please help us.

Messenger:        Tomorrow is the 5th.

                            Please come to Florida.
                            The Rosary is broadcasted live in
                                China at 5:20 and Morrow at 6:20.
                                Also at the sub-centers -
                                    in  Iowa - 5:20
                                        Sidney, Ohio - 6:20
                                        Toledo, Ohio - 6:20
                                Call Morrow for details -
                                    or 1-513-932-4451

                            We could make some money selling the
                                image pictures, but we don't 
                                have money to initially buy them

                                and the few we have we have to
                                charge a large price.

                            Mary wants them circulated around
                                the world.

                            If we had funds or a digital
                                machine we could get others to
                                help us distribute them, if
                                they could buy them at
                                a cheap price.

                            Mary and Jesus have given these pictures
                                because they want them circulated.

                            All would work toward more income
                                if we could do what They tell us.

                            Image rosaries are being held waiting for us.

                            We could sell them cheaper and people
                                could be helpers giving them
                                for presents, (especially for Christmas 
                                or birthdays) but again, we do

                                not have the initial money to even
                                buy them.

                            We don't have money to do what Jesus
                                and Mary are asking us to do.

                             If B&M goes out of business, we
                                will lose the company that
                                prints all our cards.

                            If we bought B&M then we could
                                print small amounts of things.
                                We haven't had song books with
                                   Jesus' songs for a long time.

                            We have none at the Virgin Mary site.

                            We need lots of cards.

Messenger:        I cried for beads for the school rosary
                                program and our rosary makers.

                                Someone gave us 65,000 home made
                                    rosaries for the schools.
                                    Thank You Jesus.

                                Now we need postage to send it out.

                            Can you give a little support monthly,
                                Fr. Carter said the associates
                                would help finance the Priestly

                            If each associate could give $5 or $10
                                four times a year that would help
                                and if we could get more associates
                                we should ask them to help with
                                the funding for the Priestly Newsletter.

                            This never was observed much, but it
                                is set up in Father Carter's original
                                plan for the movement.

                            Here is what Father Carter wrote in 
                                the Handbook concerning this.

(Written by Father Carter in the summer of 1994
 The Newsletter, then, was only 4 pages
 Very soon it became 8 and now as we 
    include excerpts from his books, 
    it has become 20. 
 He, himself, put out the 20 page 
    newsletter issue 3, 2000. 
 The Newsletter was first sent 
    to 45,000 priests in the United States. 
 For years it has gone to 90 foreign countries 
    and 70,000 priests and translated and 
    circulated in Spanish. 
 Father Carter said, "We are doing something 
    wrong if we can't get out the Newsletter 
    as Our Lord wishes. It is our top priority." 
 He said we are never to charge for the Newsletter. 
 It is funded totally through the donations. 
 His plan was the associates would majorly 
    support the Newsletter. 
 Members pray for the financial success for 
    the Newsletter themselves.)



Excerpt from the Handbook

    In addition to the purpose of the chapters as put forth above, the members of each chapter are encouraged to help raise money to defray some of the newsletter publication costs and some of the financial needs of the Shepherds of Christ Associates movement. One way for chapters to financially aid the newsletter is to pledge to pay for a certain number of newsletters each year. The cost per newsletter per year for each priest is slightly more than $1.00. Our Lord has asked that the newsletter be sent to the priests free of charge, although donations may be requested in the newsletter itself.

Messenger:        We are able to take credit card donations
                                from outside the United States.
                            Please see the end of the message.

                            Someone is really helping us with the
                                meager money we need for the servants
                                handmaids to live and eat.

                            Servants and handmaids truly live a life
                                of service and poverty. They are not
                                required to give up their own
                                individual money.
                            Many have pensions or social security,
                                they help each other to eat and

                            Emily and Jane came to Cincinnati to help me
                                sort through the pictures and messages.
                                When they returned they didn't 
                                    have money for gas.

                            We exist on day to day money and it is
                                really tough sending the Newsletter
                                to 75,000 priests.

                            We really need help to do this.

                             Please help us or ask someone
                                if you think they can help us.

                            Here is a picture of Mary.

Messenger:         We need to circulate the pictures
                                and help people become aware
                                of Mary on the building.

                            I love you and thank you for all
                                your prayers and your support
                                for the Shepherds of Christ

                            Fr. CarterPlease help us.
                                     Please help us.
                               Pray for 2 urgent intentions.

                            Most of our bills in the
                                Movement people
                                pay for themselves because
                                of lack of funds.

Jesus speaks:    

                   I love you so much,

                   I appear to help lead the souls to       
                        My Heart.

                   They must respond.

                   My Mother appears to tell her
                        children how much she loves

February 5, 2001

Mary speaks:     My children, I appear to you.
                            Your Father has permitted me to appear.
                            So many are headed for perdition,
                            Oh my children, we truly speak to 
                                you here.
                            You must pray.
                            Your world is going so far from
                                the truth.

                            Oh my children, I love them so

                                and I cry for them.

                            You must turn your hearts to Our

                                Two Hearts.

                            Pray through the intercession of

                                Our Lady of Clearwater and 

                                    Father Carter.

Mary speaks:     Great grace will be released

                                when you pray through

                                my powerful intercession.

                            I am the Lady of Light.

                            I am your Mother.

                            I am Our Lady of Clearwater.

                            I beg you to listen to me.

                            My Son Jesus has given you His

                                Movement at the end of the

                                second millennium.

                            You ignored me and my Son when

                                we spoke to you at Our Lady of

                                the Holy Spirit Center.

                            My children, my Son's Priestly Newsletter
                                will help renew the Church 
                                and the world.

                            My children you must pray
                                for peace.

                            I give you my rosary.

                            My Son Jesus gives you the
                                Shepherds of Christ Prayers.

                            My children please help me.

                            My children, I love you so.

                            I am Mary your Mother.

                            I am Our Lady of Fatima in
                                the Americas.

                            I appear as Our Lady of Clearwater.

                            Oh the waters will run, and
                                some crops will burn and
                                what do We do to get you to
                                 take notice.

                            What can I do to reach my children,
                                so caught up in the worldly ways.

                            I appear and you do not take notice.
                            My Son appears and you do not
                                recognize this as a gift.
