October 14, 1998

Messenger: My dear Bridegroom,

My desire is to be immensely united to You. I am as in a desert land waiting and wanting to feel the closeness to You I have experienced when You act on my soul in a special way. In the beginning, I had so much time to be with You. I felt Your presence before the tabernacle and after Communion, and in leaving the Church I had such great sorrow.

Through consecration and these revelations and experiences with You at Mass I knew more and more what it was like to be identified with You at all times. There were many times when You in a special way acted upon my soul, and the ecstasy of being existent in God was so overwhelming I felt my body could not take the experience.

I learned through special favors at Mass what it was to exist deeply in the "I am" and my desire is always for this. I want to be so deeply united to You for all eternity. I experienced special favors when I received revelations about the Mass and the Spouse of the Lamb material. I experienced a great oneness with Our Lady and the understanding of her Heart in the more than 500 times she appeared delivering Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. The journey You have taken me on my Bridegroom is deeply into Your Heart and the Heart of Your Mother. Therein, in dwelling in these two Hearts are found the riches, the treasures my soul seeks. I cry out the words of both litanies which once seemed like phrases without a lot of meaning. Now they take on so much meaning as I dwell in Their Hearts.

For me the litanies help to reveal deep insights into the mystery of God's love, insights into dwelling in Their Hearts. I love to recite the Litany to the Blessed Virgin begging for mercy of God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit and honoring Mary in her titles as Mother, Virgin and Queen. It is in the titles of Mother, Virgin and Immaculate Conception she is blasphemed. In praying her litany we make great reparation to her Heart, which greatly pleases the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. It is in going to her Heart that we unite in the deepest union with the all holy God. Only through her Immaculate Heart can we do this, because we are tainted in our human nature. So, Jesus, I love to say she is the Spiritual vessel, Vessel of honor, Singular vessel of devotion, Tower of David, Tower of ivory, House of gold, Ark of the Covenant, Gate of heaven. In her, we will see the light, she is the Lady of Light, the Lady Clothed with the Sun. We call her Morning star. We end the litany with Lamb of God.... I see this great age of becoming the spouse of the Lamb. We honor Mary in her Queenship. Then we pray to the Lamb of God. In this great Reign of the Sacred Heart and triumph of Mary's Heart, we will worship the Lamb that was slain, and be so intimately united to Him in this spousal relationship. It ends with this oneness with You my beloved Lamb. You will reign in all hearts as the King.

My beloved, more and more I wish to pray your litany to the Sacred Heart, to honor You and adore You. In both litanies I find insight into the mystery of this Great Age of the Two Hearts, when Christ will be so alive in the hearts of men that they will live in Him and He live in them in a most intimate way in great oneness.

I see this age, an age of such deep oneness with God. I love the phrases in the Sacred Heart litany when I pray to You. The title Sacred Heart of Jesus of infinite majesty is so beautiful. But the title Heart of Jesus, Sacred temple of God, gives me great insight, unveiling lines in the scriptures. As in Revelation 3:12 where it says "Anyone who proves victorious I will make into a pillar in the sanctuary of my God, and it will stay there for ever; I will inscribe on it the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem which is coming down from my God in heaven, and my own new name as well."

The temple is His Sacred Heart. We will never leave it, we will dwell there forever.

On July 2, 1996, on Tom's farm, my child was taking pictures. You told me, Jesus, to have him take two pictures of Father Carter. In the second picture, Father Carter appeared as a pillar of light. On July 4, 1996, Our Lady appeared to me and You, Jesus, gave me the following message.

Jesus speaks: My child I have guided you in your writing after Communion. I now wish to speak to you as the most Sacred Heart. My beloved ones, please include the picture as it appears on the postcard and the message I gave on that July 4, 1996.

Father Carter appeared as a pillar of light.

July 4, 1996

This message was received before a live statue of the Sorrowful Mother after Communion.

Message from Jesus: "Peace will abound when nations, churches, families and individuals are consecrated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary."
"Fr. Carter is a pillar of light to the dark world. This is the explanation of the photo. It is through him, I will turn darkness to light. Circulate this message with the picture. Encourage all to consecrate their hearts to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Sacred Heart of Jesus, to join the Shepherds of Christ Chapters, and the Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus Movement to pray for your Church and your world. This is My Movement for renewal of the Church and the world, based in consecration, joining your every act to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, praying the rosary, and making reparation to Our Hearts, especially on First Fridays and First Saturdays. It is through your prayers and sacrifices many souls will be helped to be saved. Grace will flow from those whose hearts are consecrated to Our Hearts and the fire of My Love will light up this darkened world."

As you look at the picture, you see Fr. Carter's arm and hand on your left. This picture of Fr. Carter was taken July 2, 1996 at the Tuesday Shepherds of Christ Meeting at Tom Arlinghaus' Farm.

Jesus speaks: My beloved priest-son Father Carter is writing the newsletter for priests. I have summoned him to spread this to all priests in the world. I wish particularly that bishops receive the newsletter books 1 and 2 and supply the newsletters to their priests.

My Mother wishes the bishops to consecrate their dioceses to the Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart. In circulating the newsletter you are reaching the bishops with My instrument to lead the priests and bishops into consecration. The first book of newsletters has received the Imprimatur. I would ask that the second book be completed immediately and that you seek the Imprimatur. I wish all to help to put these books and newsletters in the hands of priests, bishops and cardinals all over the world. This instrument will majorly help lead the priests into Our Hearts through consecration

I wish all priests, bishops and cardinals to consecrate their hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. I wish all schools and churches to consecrate to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. I wish all families to consecrate to Our Hearts. I wish priests daily to consecrate the world to the Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart. I will reign as the King in all hearts and My Mother will be the Queen of their hearts.

I wish you to pray the Our Father. Every time you pray this prayer, you are praying for the Reign of My Heart in all hearts.

Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name, Thy Kingdom come Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

I ask all receiving this message to circulate it and to help to reach the priests with the newsletter. I am the Good Shepherd, I am Chief Shepherd of the flock. I wish My priests to lead the fold into My Sacred Heart. My Sacred Heart is their home.

Ezekiel 34:11-16

"For the Lord Yahweh says this: Look, I myself shall take care of my flock and look after it. As a shepherd looks after his flock when he is with his scattered sheep, so shall I look after my sheep. I shall rescue them from wherever they have been scattered on the day of clouds and darkness. I shall bring them back from the peoples where they are; I shall gather them back from the countries and bring them back to their own land. I shall pasture them on the mountains of Israel, in the ravines and in all the inhabited parts of the country. I shall feed them in good pasturage; the highest mountains of Israel will be their grazing ground. There they will rest in good grazing grounds; they will browse in rich pastures on the mountains of Israel. I myself shall pasture my sheep, I myself shall give them rest - declares Lord Yahweh. I shall look for the lost one, bring back the stray, bandage the injured and make the sick strong. I shall watch over the fat and healthy. I shall be a true shepherd to them."

Jesus speaks: I ask further that priests and people pray the prayers I give in the prayer manual (Shepherds of Christ Manual) for the priests and the renewal of the Church and the world. When you pray these prayers of consecration as a body in the churches you will be united in great oneness in Our Hearts.

I ask you to read Revelation Chapter 19, the Victory Song 19:5-9

Revelation 19:5-9

Then a voice came from the throne; it said, 'Praise our God, you servants of his and those who fear him, small and great alike.' And I heard what seemed to be the voices of a huge crowd, like the sound of the ocean or the great roar of thunder, answering, 'Alleluia! The reign of the Lord our God Almighty has begun; let us be glad and joyful and give glory to God, because this is the time for the marriage of the Lamb. His bride is ready, and she has been able to dress herself in dazzling white linen, because her linen is made of the good deeds of the saints.' The angel said, 'Write this, "Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding feast of the Lamb," ' and he added, 'These words of God are true.'

Jesus speaks: Adam and Eve sinned and their souls were tainted. I am the New Adam and Mary is the New Eve. We come with Our pure and holy Hearts. Many men will dwell in Our Hearts.

In the beginning of the Bible is the fall of Adam and Eve.

In the Book of Revelation the victor will wear the white robe.

I have asked Father Carter to help lead the priests and the people into the depth of My Heart, by giving the priestly newsletter and My prayers, the prayers of the Good Shepherd, to the priests and people.

The victor will dwell in Our Hearts. Men's hearts are transformed more and more into the image and likeness of God as they dwell in Our Hearts.

Why offer an impure or tainted sacrifice, when you can offer a most holy sacrifice dwelling in Our Hearts? I give you My Heart on fire for love of you.

Revelation 4:11

You are worthy, our Lord and God,
to receive glory and honour and power,
for you made the whole universe;
by your will, when it did not exist,
    it was created.

Revelation 7:15-17

That is why they are standing in front of God's throne and serving him day and night in his sanctuary; and the One who sits on the throne will spread his tent over them. They will never hunger or thirst again; sun and scorching wind will never plague them, because the Lamb who is at the heart of the throne will be their shepherd and will guide them to springs of living water; and God will wipe away all tears from their eyes.'

Revelation 21:3-7

Then I heard a loud voice call from the throne, 'Look, here God lives among human beings. He will make his home among them; they will be his people, and he will be their God, God-with-them. He will wipe away all tears from their eyes; there will be no more death, and no more mourning or sadness or pain. The world of the past has gone.'

Then the One sitting on the throne spoke. 'Look, I am making the whole of creation new. Write this, "What I am saying is trustworthy and will come true." ' Then he said to me, 'It has already happened. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give water from the well of life free to anybody who is thirsty; anyone who proves victorious will inherit these things; and I will be his God and he will be my son.

Jesus speaks: I ask that you reprint the Mass Book and distribute copies to priests and seminarians. I ask that you distribute copies to all. I love you so much My chosen ones.

I love you,
