March 11th Holy Spirit Novena
The Novena Rosary
Pray for Special Intention, all involved
Please pray for Jim, Dan, Fr. Mike, Mary.
Prayer for Grace for our Country
Dear Father united to Jesus in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, the Sacrifice of Calvary sacramentally made present, celebrated around the world, in the Holy Spirit. We offer up all we do united to the Mass. We unite in one mind and one heart as members of the mystical body of Christ, with Christ our head in the pure and holy Hearts of Jesus and Mary, through the powerful intercession of Mary with all the angels and saints and souls in purgatory, and we beg for the saving grace, for our country, the United States. Please help us. We further pray for unity to always do the will of God in love. We spread the Blood of Jesus on the leaders and people of the United States and cast the devil into hell. We consecrate our country to the Sacred Heart and Immaculate Heart and all our dioceses, and beg for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit. God help us. We pray for our families, the priests, the Church and the world. In the Name of Jesus please hear us, we pray. We pray for our president and leaders. We pray that we are united as one nation under God to work together in love as God wants.

Do whatever you do for God.
It is in loving we are most like Him.
Pray for 2 urgent intentions.
25 Years Ago
March 10, 1994
Jesus: This is surrender. I want your all. I do not want you attached to any person or any thing. I want you completely dependent on Me. Do I teach you such lessons on how attached you are to others and things? I have all the answers. If I do not tell you, you do not need to know. You want your will. My will I make known to you in front of the tabernacle. I have spoken here.
Surrender is doing the will of God and it is not your deciding and doing your will. I want your all. I want you to do those things the way I tell you. It is not the way you want to do them. Sweet surrender, only to find I want more. Look at My position on the cross. Did I ask you to die for Me? I ask you to do My Will. I ask you to surrender. I ask for time in front of the tabernacle. I ask for love. Watch this world go up in your face. Then where are your possessions, the things you held on to? You only have limited vision. I know all things.
I am so tired. You do not give but bits and pieces. You hold on to what you want and give Me some. I want your all. I want total surrender. I showed you how to surrender when I died on the cross. I am not asking for this. I am asking for you to do My will. You are so attached to pleasing people that you do not see the whole picture. I make My ways clear here. You do not listen. You do what you think is a good thing and you do not even come to Me. I want your all. I want surrender.
R. Love includes giving up what you don't want to give up. Love is saying, "Yes, Lord", even when you would rather do it your way. It is in your surrender and love of God that you teach mighty lessons to those around you. You teach by your being in love with Jesus. I love you, Jesus. I give of My bounty, not little bits and pieces I stingily let go of. Jesus, my Lord, my God, my All, how can I love You as I ought? Do I give My all, or do I say, "Oh, Lord, you can't mean that you want this," and hold on to what I want.
Do I hold on to people and don't even know it, or do I put You first, Lord, above all persons, places and things? I see how really attached I am to everything, things I do not even know I am attached to. It is easy to give lip service to surrender and tell God to possess our soul and make me selfless, but do I really mean it? This is what keeps us from increased union with Him! It is in total surrender, of living for love of Him and Him alone, that we are free. And what freedom! The bittersweetness to let go, to find freedom from all we hold on to! The things we hold on to most are what keeps us from our increased union with Him.
"Oh, not that, Lord! Oh, do I look at your crucifix and see You letting go?" You held not one thing back. Your arms open wide, nailed to the cross! Total surrender!
What does He ask of me today that I want to hold on to? Holding on to things stops my freedom. To be totally free, I must let go. I cannot hold on and let go at the same time. Freedom is obtained in letting go. See yourself with your arms tight, holding on to all you possess.
Jesus: I call you to surrender. Open your arms as I did when I died on the cross. Let all your sacred worldly possessions drop around you and you will experience the joy of being free, united only to Me, of letting go and knowing that I, God, tend to your every need. To My death on the cross I loved you and I love you this way this very day. Let go and give it all to Me. I will care for you far better than you could for yourself. I am God and I love you more than you can love yourself.
Jesus is dead, hanging on the cross, arms outstretched. His feet are not even on the ground. He is hanging by nails on a piece of wood. What do we hold on to? He wants us in midair in total surrender. Oh, little ones, how you squander your possessions. How you hold on to people. How you won't let go. See Me in total surrender.
I gave My very life for you. What do you hold on to, My little ones? Little bits and pieces you give to Me and you hold tight to your lives. They will be up in smoke and all that will remain will be the things of God. Not one pair of shoes do you take with you, only your love, given to God and others.

Messenger: I give my heart to Jesus and Mary with you in love.
I write to you as a messenger of God.
The sky is so blue today and the trees will soon be green,
the spring flowers will come out all over, the air will be
fresh and the breeze dance across our foreheads and
we will be warmed by a golden sun high above that sheds
golden rays down on our weary little bodies.
A hand greater than ours runs this vast universe.
I am a grandma and I look into the eyes of a little child
that one day is not here and then all of a sudden, the cries
and little body of a beautiful baby comes to us, with
little fingers and toes and a little heart waiting for love in
the big world.
This year as the buds come out on the trees,
When we drove to China and he was to say Mass he
Messenger: It was a most beautiful day. He took
me before the statue of Mary and he
said to me lead the rosary, I thought
I can't lead the rosary, he is a priest.
I had never led the rosary except at
home and with my children and then
we took turns. Father Carter said
again "lead the rosary" and so I did.
Then he said when a few people
joined us "Sing a Song" I thought
okay, I guess I can do it without a
piano so I did it.
The Sacred Heart statue was not there yet when Father Carter and I went to Falmouth Kentucky in 1994.
That began my career of leading and praying the rosary in
The day is sunny and the sky is Virgin Mary blue, – what is
that you say?
One day I hadn't seen Mary (only once she had appeared
July 17, 1993 in my dining room) and then that July 5, 1994
I would see Mary daily for 14 months. And I began to know the
Hearts of Jesus and Mary from the way they spoke to me when I
received the rosaries in the Red Rosary book.
The message I remember so deeply implanted in
my soul those last 9 months Mary appeared daily was to reach
the schools with the rosary and the meditations and consecration
cards. Our president sent out this picture of Mary this
Do you want your school children to be holy?
Then we must pray as Mary asked at Fatima on October 13th, 1917:
We would like to offer your school rosaries for the youth, the Rosary Aves (short bead by bead meditations), and consecration cards (all have the Imprimatur). We have approximately 25,000 rosaries in stock for immediate delivery to schools for October. Call our toll free number 1-888-211-3041 today to reserve your school's supply and arrange immediate shipment. We distribute the rosaries without charge by operating on a donation basis.
We must instruct our children about their souls. Our children need to learn to pray the rosary. Praying one decade a day in schools will help children to have peace and to love the rosary. They need to be taught to rely on the rosary. Devotion to the rosary could help decrease violence and increase vocations.
All of our printed materials can be downloaded from our website at www.sofc.org or ordered over the phone. The consecration cards really help in the classroom and often "spread down the hall" after one teacher has success with it.
We love you and pray for you and the children every day,
Messenger: In October, 2000 we had
requests for over
80,000 rosaries from Catholic schools and we
didn't have rosary makers to fill them, but we did
finally get all the rosaries for the schools that requested
them and are sending them out to them now.
Mary especially likes Walter's rosaries for the schools,
you can get packets by calling Morrow or e-mailing
and we can send them to you if you want to make
rosaries for the schools. We have a rosary factory in
Florida in the Virgin Mary building.
Messenger: I don't know what I
would do without my rosary.
I love it and I can't wait to pray all my rosaries every day.
They are a big part of my peace and my life. I get into
that rosary and meditate on the mysteries and I am "set
free" and with my God. I meditate on the Joyful mysteries and know
how I am being formed more and more into the
image of Jesus

Here are some messages of Mary from Fatima. July 13, 1917 p.14.
Excerpt from The Spirituality of Fatima and Medjugorje
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)
The October 13 vision was accompanied by the great Miracle of the Sun described in the previous chapter. In her message that day, Our Blessed Mother told the children:
I am the Lady of the Rosary. I have come to warn the faithful to amend their lives and to ask pardon for their sins. They must not offend Our Lord any more, for He is already too grievously offended by the sins of men. People must say the Rosary. Let them continue saying it every day.(17)

May 31, 1994
During the summer of 1993, Father Edward J. Carter, S.J., Professor of Theology at Xavier University, Cincinnati, Ohio, began to receive mystical locutions (messages) from Jesus and Mary on a regular basis.
In a message given on May 31, 1994, Jesus asked Father Carter to begin the publication of a spirituality newsletter for priests. To be sent to more than 60,000 priests in the U.S.A., and also to priests in other countries, the newsletter is published by Shepherds of Christ Publications, an arm of Shepherds of Christ Ministries, and will be distributed bi-monthly. The title of the newsletter is Shepherds of Christ.
Jesus has asked that chapters be formed to pray for the needs of priests around the world. The chapters are to pray in a special way for the spiritual success of the priestly newsletter, as well as to aid in the financial support of this publication. The chapters and members are to be called Shepherds of Christ Associates.
Our Lord has stressed that Shepherds of Christ Associates become an international movement.
October 13, 1994
Jesus speaks: '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.'
Through Him, With Him, In Him
Excerpt from November 7, 1998 Daily Message
Jesus speaks: I am the Bread of Life. I give you My Word and the Eucharist to feed you. Father Carter is My Bread of Life priest. It is through these messages given to the messenger and through the priestly newsletter that I wish the hungry souls to come for My ardent on fire love.
(End of Excerpt from November 7, 1998 Daily Message)
Mary speaks: I

At the end of the century My Son Jesus wrote through
my messengers Rita and Father Carter to help

I began at Fatima, to help bring about
the Reign of His Sacred Heart.

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: I write now to you.
Messenger: The last day Father said Mass he was really sick,
he said it and then went in the hospital. He was
His whole life was dedicated to writing about the
spiritual life. He coughed every time he talked all summer,
but he managed to write down his grand synopsis
of the spiritual life in the 20 page Newsletter he wrote
in June. He was determined to get it done. He wrote 17
books and 33 Newsletters for the priests and the world
in the last 33 years of the second millennium. Jesus
told him to begin the movement in 1994.
He had a Doctor's in theology. I wish everyone could have
seen him those months when he wrote the last Newsletter
on Work. He knew labor. He labored hard to get all his
writings to us. Reading his Newsletter on work should
show us how a dying man who gave his life for
Jesus and to bring the great Reign of peace
thought as he labored to bring that writing to us.
The second to the last newsletter, the 20 page
Newsletter, was a summation of the spiritual life.
This Newsletter he knew would go on forever and ever
in the Church helping priests and all men.
Our Lord told him to begin the Movement and begin Prayer Chapters.
This was in 1994 on the feast of St. Ignatius. Father Carter was a Jesuit
priest, it was on the feast of St. Ignatius he got the message to begin the
Newsletter and the Prayer Chapters to help bring about the Completion
of the Mission Mary began at Fatima. 6 years later the Newsletter
goes to 75,000 priests. It goes in English and Spanish in 90
countries, over 245-250 bishops and cardinals use the Newsletter
for their dioceses.
After Father went into the hospital I hardly saw Father after
that, in the 3 months I talked to him several times on the phone
daily and communicated to him through the fax. I went to a few
Masses a priest said and they wheeled in the sick, skinny, priest
I loved so much, but most of my time those last 3 months were
doing what he told me to do. Jesus had directed him to continue
the work of the Newsletter with his writings and to get the Prayer
Chapters started all over the world to help with the Completion
of the Fatima Mission. When he was in the hospital I saw him a
good part of the day. I met with him for a long time in the parlor
in November at his residence but most of the communication was
through long telephone conversations and faxes working to
continue this mission as Jesus had instructed him. The last time I
saw him was December 14, 2000, 4 days before he died. Here is
the picture of that meeting. It was at his Jesuit residence.
Messenger: Father worked so hard on that 20 page Newsletter,
it was the synopsis of his whole life and he wrote about
the spiritual life, our life with God and he was taping it
so he could see if there were any typo's etc. He worked
so hard to make everything perfect, so no errors were
in any writings, so they could be passed on and circulated
to Cardinals, bishops and priests all over the world.
He was sick when he was reading it, but he forced
and he explained how it was set up to me. He told me
about it. In the Newsletter he talked about the overview
of the Spiritual life, the life of grace through baptism,
our relationship with Jesus who is Mediator.
He wrote of our relationship with the Father, the
Holy Spirit and Mary. Then he told me (all this from
the table of contents of the newsletter) how we live out the
spiritual life in the Church. The Heart of the
Spiritual life is in the sacraments and the Eucharist.
Father says in his newsletter on priesthood
"Through the sacrament of Holy Orders,
provided His Church with priests who play a major
role in the dispensing of this life which Jesus
has come to give and to give most abundantly."
Priesthood is key to the life of the Church.
Prayer is the key exercise of the spiritual life.
And I quote from Father's Newsletter about our relationship
"Growth in the Christ-life gives us an increased
awareness of our relationships with others.
That is to say, the true Christian is keenly aware
that, to a great degree, God intends each of us to
press on toward maturity in the spiritual life
through proper relationships with our fellow
From Father's Newsletter on the Christian and the World I quote:
"God calls us to share His love for His creation.
Growth in Christ develops our awareness of this
truth. The Christian should have a deeper love for
the world than the non-believer."
Growth in the spiritual life entails an ongoing
and progressive purification.
From Father's Newsletter on the Vision of Faith I quote
"Through faith we share in God’s knowing activity
in a special way, and we are able to know God and
creation in relationship to God in a supernatural,
If we are to properly progress in the spiritual life,
we must allow this vision of faith to more and more
penetrate our activities."
The virtue of trust is extremely important for
growth in the spiritual life.
From Response to God's Love I quote
"Christian hope is a virtue that allows us to tend toward God
in Christ as our absolute fulfillment, our absolute future. Hope
allows us to trust that God will grant us the graces necessary to
achieve this goal."
Humility is a very important virtue given to us
for the spiritual journey.
One of the blocks to the spiritual life, Father said,
was lack of humility.
Strength in Weakness
We must realize our weakness and see our
strength is in Him.
Living in the Present Moment
I quote from Father
"I suggest that one of the most difficult acts
of self-discipline in the spiritual journey
is to concentrate on the present moment."
This is necessary Father says for growth in the spiritual life.
Surrender to God
We must surrender to God. We give ourselves more
and more to Jesus.
We are guided through the Church
Mind and Heart
We cannot become heartless and too much
focused in our minds.
The Mystical Life
The mystical life is the relative ultimate development
of the spiritual life itself.
Father talks about the Hearts of Jesus and Mary and
the life of Consecration.
Here is the copy of the Table of Contents on his twenty
Messenger: Father wrote his whole life about the Spiritual life,
his first book Response in Christ is the beginning.
In the new Newsletter he explains the
Christian Life of Grace.
In it he explains grace in general. He
explains the Graced Christian, their
relationship with the Father, Christ, the
Holy Spirit, Mary, the members of the
Church, and the relationship with
man and his world.
Here is this table of contents from the most recent
Newsletter on Grace, Issue 1, 2001
Messenger: Father wrote about the spiritual life, always
explaining it and our relationship
with the Triune God, Father, Son and
Holy Spirit, Mary, and our relationship with
the members of the Church and
the relationship with man
and his world.
1) Response in Christ 1967
2) Response to God’s love 1984
3) Tell My People 1994
4) Spirituality Handbook 1994
5) The Newsletter Issue 3, 2000
This was his final complete document on
this subject The Spiritual Life.
He told me that Jesus covered the whole of
the spiritual life in His messages
in Tell My People.
He said the spirituality handbook was
a synopsis of the spiritual life
and all Shepherds of Christ
members should read it over and
over. This is on tape as Father
Carter reads it.
The Newsletter issue 3, 2000 was a great work.
He worked hard and he told me how Jesus
wanted it out and told me how important
We struggled so much for money for it. It was hard
on Father writing it while he was literally dying.
He told us Jesus said it must go out. After
he worked so hard to meet the deadline, we did
not have money for the Newsletter and it was
held up. Father was upset because Jesus told
him it must go out. God the Father gave me
strong messages to get this newsletter out.
I felt that God might punish the earth
because even after Mary appeared on the
building we couldn’t get help to pay for the
Father prayed every day at Mass. He wanted to
He was told of the urgency of this.
Finally someone gave us the money.
The person told us he promised Jesus while visiting
Rome that he would help us.
Do you believe? Do you realize the gift given to us
in Father Carter's writings. He was directed
to write to the priests. We have struggled
for money to do what God asked him to do.
I have cried for help to do what Our Lord and Our
have asked for.
We just don't know the gifts
Carter’s writings and how it is
so important to help bring about this
great Reign of the Sacred Heart.
Here is an excerpt from a letter I recently wrote
to a man on March 8, 2001.
Newsletter was Father Carter’s 32nd Newsletter out of the 33 he published
while he was alive (speaking of Father Carter's newsletter An Overview
of the Spiritual Life). It was his “baby” to help lead the priest into a deeper love
union with Jesus and help them in their spiritual life. In the 17 books he wrote
the last 33 years of the second millennium (the last 33 years of his life) they were
written with this deep connection to Jesus. All his books went through strict
discernment and most have the Imprimatur, I think all the
was praying every day for funds for the Newsletter to be sent to
the 75,000 priests. We operate on donations. Father prayed
at Mass every day for this. We pray with all our hearts, in China,
Indiana, our Eucharistic Center, where the international mailing
is sent from. They pray on the hour (during the day) for all the needs
of the movement and they pray at least a couple of hours every night
at 6:20 all before the tabernacle. We have a retreat every
month for 48 hours before the exposed Eucharist praying
so hard for grace to be outpoured on the souls of the earth,
telling Jesus how much we love Him. We want to make reparation
to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary for the offenses against them and we
offer our prayers at this retreat for this.

gave me instructions to get the Newsletter Issue 1, 2001 out in
January with his writing on Grace. I just never realized
he would be dead. It costs us $70,000 to send the Newsletter
to the Priests for Printing and Postage. We pray hard and the funds come.
We prayed so hard for Father’s 20 page Newsletter and a
man came and he promised Jesus he would help us while he
was in Rome. He wanted to give the money to help
Jesus, he said.
is really hard. In October we had over 80,000 orders for
rosaries for schools. We have to get people to make
all these rosaries. Sometimes we don’t send the rosaries
because we don’t have people to make them.
Sometimes we don’t send them because
we don’t have funds to send them.

Eucharistic Center in China Indiana…
man who donates money must realize what a light they are
to the world. The Newsletter goes to 75,000 priests who affect millions
of people in Churches, in the Body of Christ and others all over the world.
we are struggling so much to send out this Newsletter
Issue 1, 2001 to so many priests that Father taught about Jesus. This
instrument Jesus told him to write. We will tell
them about his death and then give about 50,000 priests in the
US the prayer manual to begin Prayer Chapters.
This is what Jesus told Father Carter to do, to begin these prayer
chapters. Jesus said He would give great grace to those who pray the prayers
to lead them to the depth of His Heart and His Mother’s Heart.
Priests will get the Newsletter that talks
about the Morning Offering. When Father Laurentin did
his article on Clearwater he included the little prayer of morning
offering Jesus gave me in French.
Now so many priests will think more
and the morning offering from reading the Newsletter. If people
offered up their days in union with the Mass, so much
grace could be outpoured on the earth. This
could change the face of the earth.
This Newsletter Father wanted. We are on
mountain top now.
Father is interceding from the other
for grace for the world for the Reign of the Sacred Heart
in all Hearts.
If priests began prayer chapters all
world with the Prayers Jesus gave Father Carter it
could help majorly to bring to completion the
mission Mary began at Fatima that the
Sacred Heart will Reign in the hearts of
men on this earth.
We are at battle. This is the war.
Christ is Victorious.
We want to reach the souls so more will go to heaven, so they will be
on the right side with Jesus.
This is our mission, to pray for the
souls, the priests, the Church
and the world and to get others to be united with us praying
for the priests the Church and the world.
We are sending this current Newsletter
with the Prayers
Jesus gave Father and the Prayer Manual to priests
all over the world, 75,000. Father Carter regularly
wrote to them.
They will call from all over to begin
and we can only order 100,000 prayer manuals to
be printed, that isn't even 2 per priest.

Most of the
priests in the US will be getting this Newsletter and Prayer Manual
in a few days 20,000 Newsletters were sent out of China, Indiana on
March 2, 2001, First Friday to the Foreign countries. We need Prayer
Manuals. That is what Jesus told Father Carter could majorly help
to bring about the Completion of the Fatima Mission and
the Reign of the Sacred Heart in so many hearts.
We are at battle with the devil. Jesus
already. We need to reach the souls so, so many
souls will make Him King of their Hearts.
Mary told us what to do at Fatima.
Father Carter at the end of the century what He
wanted Father Carter to do.
I go to prisons and nursing homes and
I try to get others to visit nursing homes and prisons. It is important
we tell them their lives are so important to God. They can offer up all
they do in union with the Mass for souls and grace can be released for
the thirsty souls from their offering.
I am an Apostle of the Sacred Heart of

bring about the Reign of the Sacred Heart.
Just think $18,000 can get 200,000
Manuals in the hands of priests all over the world,
praying for the priests, the Church and the world.
We get so many letters every day from
begging for rosaries and religious books. We have people
all over the world that pray the prayers with us. The
Prayers Jesus gave to Father Carter.
When priests read of Father Carter's
death, priests that loved him
they will hear about the Prayer Manual and the Prayers.
I am begging for help for money for Prayer Manuals
Mary appeared to me daily long before she appeared on
the building and I would cry because the last 9 months
of the 14 months she appeared she wanted us to reach
the school children and I didn't know how to do it.
I was so blocked and so few would listen to Mary's
message. I would go to Holy Cross-Immaculata Church
and hang over the pew and I felt as if swords were in me.
Jesus and Mary gave me the consecration prayers on
the little red cards for the school children. I
cried many times when Mary spoke to me.
The night Our Lady gave me the School Rosary
program I cried all night.
I am not in this for money. Mary
appeared daily between July 5, 1994 -
September 5, 1995. After all that, the day the Red Rosary book left the
publisher December 17, 1996, Mary appeared on the
building in Rainbow Color.
I was told to put Harold's rainbow
and rose on the
cover of the Red Rosary book.
We had 17th meetings monthly since February 17, 1994 to
about September 17, 1996. Jesus called the first 13th meeting on
October 13, 1996. At this meeting He strongly called the apostles.
Then Mary appeared on the building December 17, 1996.
Books had been published with the
fact, I received a vision of Jesus' Sacred
Heart December 17, 1991 long before Mary
appeared on the building. My first message
ever published was December 17, 1993 long before
Mary appeared on the building December 17, 1996.
For years my heart ached because of what
Our Lady said when she appeared daily
January 1, 1995 - September 5, 1995 about reaching the
children and the schools.
I love souls and the devil wants them
himself and he doesn't like what we are doing.
On January 5, 2001 Mary appeared in rainbow color on
the building as Father Mike lead the rosary.
January 5, 2001
Messenger: She appeared in golden color on the 5ths in the year 2000.
July 5, 2000
Messenger: Before that when I said the rosaries on the 5th at night
July 5, 1998 to the end
of 1999 the glass appeared black on the building. On the
third anniversary she appeared gold December 17, 1999, then
she started appearing in gold on the 5ths. Without
a flash we took these pictures during the rosaries on
the 5ths. She first appeared to me July 5, 1994. July 5, 1998
Father Carter consecrated the world to the Sacred Heart from the
Florida building. July 5, 2000 we got the first picture
of Mary appearing in gold at night.
|Messenger: February 5, 2001 I got Jesus' face. Here
the pictures from March 5, 2001 when I did
the rosary under Mary.

My dear donors,
Your gifts are helping to bear fruit all over the
world in many priests' hearts. They are helping our
children and the souls of the earth.
What a gift to be able to see our
money live on and on to better
the world and help souls get to
Thank you for your gifts.
I love you,
To whom it may concern. We work very closely
with a priest daily and many bishops and
priests are helping us do what we do. None of my
writings or messages are published without
discernment by a Roman Catholic Priest.
(Letters from others are not part of my writings, they are letters from others.)
Excerpt from Tell My People
Follow the Way I Have Given You
Jesus speaks: "My beloved priest-companion, I have given you this book of messages for the spiritual instruction of My people. I have put before My people the path I wish them to follow. The messages I and My Mother have given all converge upon devotion to Our Hearts, and, in particular, upon consecration to Our Hearts. Ideally, devotion to Our Hearts culminates in the act of consecration to My Heart and My Mother's Heart. Living out this consecration day by day leads to the highest sanctity.
"My people who make and live out the consecration to Our Hearts are helping to bring about the great new era of peace which the Church and the world will experience after the period of purification has been completed. This period of splendorous peace will be characterized by the triumph of the Immaculate Heart and the reign of My Sacred Heart!"
Reflection: Jesus and Mary, in Their great love for us, have put before us this book of messages for our spiritual instruction. The Hearts of Jesus and Mary ask for our response of love. They ask us to live the messages. They ask us to incorporate all the messages into the living out of our consecration to Their Hearts. Who would want to refuse Their invitation?

Dear Father Carter:
I am very grateful for the the Letter: Shepherds of Christ, which you so generously send me. I have read them and am re-reading most of them.
I am sending a small donation to help pay the expenses of sending some of them. I wish I could send more. I am in a Rural Parish in the hills of Puerto Rico where work is scarce.
If possible and available, I would like to have the last four copies in Spanish. I am stationed with a Puerto Rican Confrere and his English is limited. Having the copies in Spanish, we both can enjoy reading them. In the future, please send me the Spanish copy instead of the English copy.

A PLEDGE FROM AN APOSTLE OF THE SACRED HEART
I am but a little speck on this earth,
but with His might He can use me
to spread the devotion to His
Most Sacred Heart.
Oh dear and precious Heart of Jesus
I give myself as completely as
possible to Thee so you will use
me to spread the devotion to the
ends of the earth for Your most
I am Rita your precious soul.
Use me to help to spread this burning
devotion to the souls of this earth.
I am yours, take me, use me as you
I surrender myself to you.
It is your might behind me, your power
that sends me. I am an Apostle of
the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I give
myself as completely as possible to
Sacred Heart of Jesus I place my
trust in Thee.
Father hear us please. We beg through
the intercession of Father Carter
and Our Lady of Clearwater that
prayer chapters are started all over
the world and the Priestly Newsletter
gets there immediately with the
Mary's Message from the Rosary of August 27, 1996
Mary: 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.
Song: O Lady of Light, shining so bright, be with us this day, guiding our way, O Lady, O Lady of Light.
Mary: I appear to you as Our Mother of Sorrows.

Guiding Light homily series — Reflect on the Word — Cycle B The Word leaves an impression on our souls. In my thoughts and reflections are born a more tangible understanding of these eternal concepts presented in the Gospels and the readings. Anyone can read a sentence, but not anyone can absorb it's true meaning. Truth, in this day and age, is almost a matter of opinion or individual entitlement. We believe that Christ's truth is our Roman Catholic Church. We, as priests, champion it's teachings; we are ambassadors for the Pope and Christ to those faces looking at us. We are the light by which our congregation reads to reflect upon real truth and we do it hand in hand. $15
Guiding Light homily series — Steadfast to the Son — Cycle A The sunflower is a great example of how we should be steadfastly guided by light. What a powerful thought that this exceptional plant is not stuck in one pose day in and day out, yet adaptable and magnetized to the sun. We feel the same about our Son. Our heads turns to face Christ as each day presents its challenges to find light. We join together like plants in a field and soak up the Son through the pulpit. We are a warm circle of strength using the wind of our breath to carry our priests' words, Christ's words, to new rich soil. $15
Guiding Light — Focusing on the Word — Cycle B At times we may feel that our path to Christ is a bit "out of focus". Like the disciples in the Book of Mark, this ordinary life clouds our vision of Christ's Divinity. We may doubt the practicality or possibility of applying His teachings and example to our modern life. Cycle B's homilies are a "guiding light" to help us realize Jesus' Messianic greatness and His promise of better things to come. $15
Guiding Light — Feed My Soul — Cycle C In a world rapidly advancing and encouraging personal gain, we are faced with modern problems. There is a challenge to find time in our busy schedules for Sunday Mass or a family meal. We are able to research, shop, bank and even work without hearing one human voice. It is no wonder that we may often feel disconnected and famished at our week's end. In Fr. Joe's third book of homilies from Cycle C, we are reminded of the charity that Christ intended us to show each other. We have a calling to turn the other cheek and be the Good Samaritan to others. We are rewarded with the Father's kingdom and love when we are not worthy. We are not left alone or hungry. $15
Guiding Light — The Word Alive in Our Hearts. — Cycle A (partial) Homilies by the Reverend Joe Robinson given at St. Boniface Church in Cincinnati, Ohio. It is a tremendous honor Fr. Joe has allowed us to share these great gifts with you – for greater holiness and knowing more and more about God. $10

Priestly Newsletter — 2000 #1 — CD. — Christ is Our Strength — Fr. Edward Carter, S.J. read it the year he died. It is so beautiful. "This brief passage contains one of the greatest lessons of the spiritual life. As we progress along our spiritual journey, we become increasingly aware of how weak we are in our—selves, but how strong we are in Christ. To experience our weakness involves suffering. The degree and kind of suffering can vary. The suffering can include the experience of the classical dark night of the spirit as described by St. John of the Cross. One of the main purposes of the dark night is to make a person keenly aware of his or her helplessness without God." quote by Fr. Carter from the newsletter $10
