SPECIAL ROSARIES TO HELP
BRING ABOUT THE COMPLETION
OCTOBER 13, 1996
THE GLORIOUS MYSTERIES
This rosary was received on Sunday, October the 13th,
1996 at an International Shepherds of Christ Associates Meeting at Tom
Arlinghaus’ farm in Kentucky. The rosary was led by Fr. Edward J. Carter S.J.,
spiritual director of Shepherds of Christ Ministries. The meditations and
messages were given to Rita Ring during the rosary. This rosary was received
live and transcribed from the recording. This live recording can be obtained by
writing Shepherds of Christ Publications. All of these meditations have been
discerned by Fr. Edward J. Carter S.J.
- Messenger: Jesus has told us how He is the vine and we are the branches.
We must stay rooted in Him so that His life flows through us. We cannot become
disconnected from the vine. We are one, joined with Him.
- Hail Mary...
- Jesus: I am calling you, My special apostles, to this farm on this day
of October 13th, 1996. I will fill your hearts with the fire of My
love, and the fire of this love will spread across the earth and many hearts
will know My love and be touched through you. Open wide your heart during this
rosary that I may speak to you and tell you of My burning love for you. I am
giving to you an abundant sharing in My life. Open your heart. I am knocking
at the door of your heart. You must not close your heart. Open wide that I can
come in and fill you with My divine love.
- Messenger: Oh, my beloved Jesus, I see You glistening and covered in
white. I know that You rose on the third day and that there is such glory in
the resurrection. My life is a constant death and resurrection as I live in
- Focus on the body of a Man hanging on the cross. You see this vividly
before your eyes-a Man covered with Blood, His head crowned with thorns. He is
beaten and withered. This is the Almighty God, Jesus Christ, the Son of God,
Who came and gave Himself for love of us. Focus on this picture in your mind.
Make it so clear as if you were there, as if you are seeing this with your
eyes, at this moment, this Man on the cross, with flesh covered with Blood.
Jesus died. He was locked in a tomb for three days. Now see next to this
picture of this Man the glorified Body of Jesus, His glorified wounds, as He
comes forth from the tomb. The Almighty God, our beloved and loving Jesus-He
is alive, He is with us this day. He lives in us in a special way. When we are
baptized and in the state of grace, God is alive within us and He shares with
us His divine life. We are Christ to one another for He is alive in us.
When I talk to you, I am seeing the Jesus that is alive inside of you. We
are all gathered as one body. We see Jesus. We see Him dead on the cross. This
is how much that He loved us. Do we not know that He died for us because of
this great love, that He wants us to be one body? I see the vine and the
branches and I see how they are so connected that the life and the fluid runs
through the vine to the branches-it’s all one. We are one in Him. He has
given us a sharing in His divine life. Look at us, how separate we are with
each other, how we hold ourselves at arm’s length and separate ourselves
from one another. We are called in the Shepherds of Christ Movement to be one
flock with one shepherd.
The Almighty God is alive and He lives in us. I went to Mass and Communion
this morning and I received the Body of Christ; you receive the Body of
Christ. He gives to us His life. He gives to us Himself. We must strive in
this Movement to be one, to live this consecration in our lives that we are
one with each other, that we put aside all of the tauntings by the devil to
divide us, that we realize that division is from Satan. As we march across
this United States and this world, we will carry the fire of His love, alive
inside of us, for He is alive and He lives within our hearts. We are called to
this special mission as His apostles to carry this message, this message of
His love to the world.
Oh, Jesus, how tenderly I love You. You are alive in my very being. You are
all that I live for and I want to carry this message out to the world for You
have delivered this message with such love. You are so good. Fill our hearts
with the fire of Your love and give us Your abundant grace that we will have
the courage to carry this message to the ends of the earth. And there was
darkness. I see the darkness in the night, but the light steals across the sky
and the fire of His love spreads across this earth as His life lives in us and
many are touched by the fire of His love.
Song: Spirit Song
- We are not like the world, we see this world and it is Godless. In many
cases the world has turned away from God. It is at Fatima that Mary said that
we must stop offending God. She has given to us the peace plan that we will
have peace on this earth-it is in consecrating our hearts. She said until a
sufficient number have consecrated their hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and
Mary we will not have peace in the world. She said we must pray the rosary,
that we must observe the First Saturday devotion, that we must make reparation
to Their Hearts. Why-why do we not do what Mary is asking us to do? It is so
- Mary appeared at Fatima in July, 1917 and she told the children,
"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 a 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
Mary has appeared to me, almost every day from July the 5th
of 1994 until September the 5th of
1995-14 months-this same cry that came from our Heavenly Mother at Fatima, that
we must quit offending God, that we must do what she is telling us to do. This
is the peace plan. He is alive and He lives in us. We are being asked to go into
the world and to spread His love to the far corners of the earth.
He gives to us His life in the Eucharist. Who are we that the Almighty God
gives to us, human persons, a sharing in His Divine Life. He is treated with
such indifference and such neglect. If we knew, if we could see, the glories of
the Almighty God, but we are so blind in our sight. We do not see and we do not
hear. We must pray for the grace that we will see, that we will be the apostles
that He is calling to carry this message out to the world.
He rose from the dead and He appeared to the apostles. We see Thomas-he
did not believe. How are we this day? Do we believe? The Almighty God is truly
present in His Divinity and humanity in the Holy Eucharist and He is outpouring
His grace, His life to us. Do we believe? Do we believe that He is truly present
and that He is giving Himself to us this day? He is here! He is truly present in
the Eucharist and He is alive in our hearts!
He laments and laments how He is treated as a dead object. He is ignored
in the tabernacle.
The Almighty God is here. We spend all this money and go to concerts, go to
football games, all this time in recreation and the Almighty God is ignored.
Mary appeared in 1917 and said that we must stop offending God. Look at our
world. He has called us in the Shepherds of Christ Movement and is giving to us
abundant grace that we will grow more and more in our relationship with Him and
we will be His leaders going into this world carrying the fire of His love to
the far corners of the earth.
He is alive. He says, "I am the Way, the Truth and the Life and I am
with you this day. Open your eyes and see. Open your hearts and live for I AM
the Way, the Truth and the Life."
Our Lord Ascends Into Heaven
- Messenger: He took His apostles out to the place of His Ascension and He
raised His arms and He ascended into heaven. Do we see the glories of these
mysteries, that the Almighty God rose from the dead, that He ascended into
heaven? We do not see the glory. We are so focused on the details in our
lives. We see with such limited vision. The Almighty God is alive and He is
here and He is calling us. Each one of us has been called to this farm, this
day, for He knew you would answer this calling. He knew that in your heart you
want the deepest love affair with Him, that you want to be one with Him. He
has called you as His apostles to carry out His love to the world, to light up
the darkness with His life alive within us.
- We look out and we see the beauty of this day, with the sun in the sky
and the light, and all the colors in the trees. We see the life in each blade
of grass and in each leaf on the tree and tonight the darkness will cover this
earth and although the trees and the leaves are still there, and this
beautiful river, we will not be able to see with this clarity. The earth this
day is covered with darkness for many souls have cut themselves off from the
vine. They are withering and dying in their hearts. He is calling us and
giving us abundant grace that we will be one in Him, that He will live in us,
and as we live on this earth, He will touch others through us. This is a
tremendous calling from the Almighty God-that we have been chosen and called
and given this grace to be so close to Him.
- Song: A Song From Jesus
- Song: Little Child
- Hail Mary...
- Messenger: On Ascension Thursday, 1995, I went through such an
experience. First, Jesus took me to the height of heaven and I experienced
such ecstasy. I was at church and later that day when I went home I was given
great anguish and suffering and He called out, "I am alive, I am alive, I
am alive!" and He said that He wanted Fr. Carter in the Shepherds of
Christ Movement to reach the souls on this earth with the fire of His love. It
was in such pain and suffering that I was buckled over and hearing the
Almighty God call out, "I am alive, I am alive, I am alive". How do
we treat Jesus? Do we treat Him as if He is alive? Do we love Him with all our
hearts, our whole souls and our whole beings? Do you hear the laments of our
beloved Savior, the Almighty God, Who gave Himself and died on the cross? He
is alive. He wants this burning love affair with us. Many of the Masses, many
of our prayers, are said with lack of emotion in our hearts. He wants us to
love Him with the deepest burning love, not to go through the motions. Every
prayer is a love affair with our beloved Savior. The rosary we sing-(The
Rosary Song), and He wants us to say from our hearts, the bottom of our
hearts, "Jesus, we love You. Mary, we love you. Oh, the Rosary, the
Rosary, is the love of Their Two Hearts. Oh the Rosary, the Rosary, is the
love of Their Two Hearts."
In the September 10th rosary that we circulated to you, Jesus
laments how He does not receive a drop of heartfelt love from many of His
beloved religious that He has chosen and loves so much. This is why He has
called us in the Shepherds of Christ Movement, to pray, to pray for His
beloved religious. He loves them so much and He wants, He wants this burning
love from them, His chosen ones. We are gathered here for this reason-to
realize that the Almighty God really is talking to us, that He has called us,
that this is an important mission, that we need to pray so fervently for our
priests and our religious, that this is His instrument, the Shepherds of
Christ Movement, to help in the renewal of the Church and the world.
- Jesus: I am alive, I am alive, I am alive, and I live in your heart.
Open your heart and let Me come inside of you. I want to touch My beloved
souls this day. Will you say "yes" to this calling? Will you go to
the ends of the earth and spread this movement? Will you pray, pray fervently
for this intention: to lead the religious to the fires of love, found in My
most Sacred Heart?
- Song: Spirit Song
Jesus: I am alive, I am alive, I am alive, and I live in your hearts.
Messenger: Jesus no longer walks this earth, but He is alive and He lives
- Song: Come Unto Me All Who Are Weary...
Jesus: I am alive, I am alive, I am alive, and I am the Almighty God, all
powerful. You see with such limited vision. You must surrender and let go and
let Me run your life. You are holding on, My beloved ones. You must realize
that I am all powerful, all mighty, and that I am guarding you and I am with
you in a special way this day.
- Carry My light into the darkness.
Messenger: And the light came across the dark sky and many were touched
with the fire of His love.
Because you answered this call, the call to be His apostle, to pray for the
priests, to help spread the consecration as our Lady has asked us at Fatima.
We will not have peace in the world until our hearts are filled with love, and
she says until a sufficient number have consecrated their Hearts to the hearts
of Jesus and Mary, we will not have peace. This is the good news. As the
Movement spreads across this earth, as hearts are consecrated to the Hearts of
Jesus and Mary, we will have the peace that Our Lady has promised at Fatima
but we must do as she has told us to do. We must consecrate our hearts and
spread this to the world. We must pray the rosary, observe the First Saturday
devotion, and make reparation to Their Hearts.
The Descent of the Holy Spirit Upon the Apostles
Jesus: I call you, I call you, I call you, My beloved apostles. I call
you to go out to the ends of the earth and to preach My love. I am longing and
thirsting for My beloved souls to come to Me. Bring to Me the souls, the souls
I love. I am Jesus, do you hear this call? Will you bring to Me the souls of
My loved ones? Will you pray for the priests and the religious, for it is
through them that I will feed the hungry souls?
- "When Pentecost day came round, they had all met together, when
suddenly there came from heaven a sound as of a violent wind which filled the
entire house in which they were sitting; and there appeared to them tongues as
of fire; these separated and came to rest on the head of each of them. They
were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak different languages as
the Spirit gave them power to express themselves." (Acts 2: 1-4)
Messenger: Look at the priest, see the priest in the Mass, the priest that
consecrates the bread and wine into the Body and Blood of Christ. He gives to
us the Body and Blood of Christ. See Jesus in the priest, giving us His Body.
Each one of us goes to the communion rail and God gives to us Himself. We are
one in Him. Jesus has told me how we sit in church, like stiffs, all separate,
going through the motions. This is not love! He wants heartfelt love in our
hearts, to realize that the Almighty God, in the greatest act of love gave
Himself as a Sacrifice on the cross and this Sacrifice is sacramentally made
present in every Mass. The Mass is a love affair with God. The deepest union
with Him is to give ourselves to Mary, for we are sinners. She is the pure and
sinless one. We give ourselves to Mary and we go to Him in her pure and
sinless Heart, to the very depth of His Heart.
He is alive and we are the apostles that must carry this life into the
world in our hearts. He is operating through us. Will we say "yes"?
Do we see the world, do we see the suffering children, do we see the babies
that are murdered in the wombs of their mothers, do we see what the children
are being fed on television...but we hold back our tongues about the love of
God? When I began to receive these messages, for six weeks before, constantly
I heard, "Feed the hungry, feed the hungry!" I prayed and I prayed
and I prayed to know His will. In September of 1991, He called out to me, for
six weeks, constantly, " Feed the hungry!" The world is starving for
the love of God! Let us feed the hungry with this love of God. Let us pray for
the priests for He gives us them.
We encounter Christ through the Sacraments. His life is outpoured in the
Mass. Grace is outpoured in part according to the disposition of the person
offering sacrifice. As we become one in Their Hearts, as the priest becomes
one in Their Hearts, consecrated to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, an immense
amount of grace is released on the earth. It is through this that many souls
will know God, that many souls will be saved. We help in the act of
redemption. We must spread this Movement to the far corners of the earth. It
is as Mary said: we must consecrate our hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and
Mary. This is the key-Mary’s Heart is the gateway to going to the deepest
chamber of the Heart of Christ.
We see how Peter denied Christ. We see how the apostles were afraid. We
see Thomas did not believe. We see them stumble and fall and run away, and
then we see them, after the Holy Spirit descended upon them. They went out
into the world and thousands were converted. They were filled with the fire of
God’s love. Let us, God, be filled with the fire of Your love.
Dear Holy Spirit, give us this fearlessness to go into this darkened world
and to carry the light, to carry the messages of Your burning love to the
souls that are starving and are longing to be fed.
Song: Lady of Fatima
Jesus: I am alive, I am alive, I am alive, and I live in you. Open your
heart that I may touch so many of My beloved souls through you. I am Jesus.
Will you say "yes", My beloved apostles?
Messenger: Look into the eyes of the children that are suffering this
day. Mary has sent us on a special mission to spread the rosaries and the
consecration to the children in the schools. Do you see the children, the
children in the schools today that are hard in their hearts, the children that
are suffering, that do not know the love of God? Mary is giving us special
help to spread these rosaries in the schools. She wants this all over the
United States. For nine months Mary asked me to spread the rosary and the
consecration to the children. We are the apostles that He is sending into the
world this day. This is what Mary and Jesus are asking us to do. It is so
little-to spread these rosaries and consecrations to the schools, but Mary
said at Fatima we will not have peace in the world until we do what she has
told us to do. The Shepherds of Christ Movement is a great part of the
completion of the Fatima message. These rosaries are a big part of the
completion of the Fatima message. We must carry these rosaries to our children
in the schools.
Satan presses down on us and tries to stop us. The pressure that has
gone on just to have this today is unbelievable, how Satan can try to stop
this. Look at the Fatima message, how it has been blocked. Why, why, why are
not we paying attention to this Fatima message that Mary gave in 1917? It is
the devil that has blocked this message. This is a major part of the
completion of the Fatima message so we will be met with such resistance.
Jesus, Jesus wants us to bring Him souls. So many souls would be saved through
the First Saturday devotion. Why, why do we not talk about the Fatima message
like we should-about praying the rosary and consecrating our hearts, and the
First Saturday devotion, and making reparation to the Hearts of Jesus and
Mary? It is so simple but the devil has blocked this. If we want peace we
should do what Mary has told us for she is the Queen of Peace and the peace of
the world has been entrusted to her. We are the apostles. We are being sent
into the world to carry this message.
The Assumption of Our Lady Into Heaven
if we love and serve the Lord, if we love and serve
God. The world has turned Godless to a large degree. Mary appeared to me every
day, except for a few days, for fourteen months and begged and pleaded that we
spread the love of her Son to this world, that we spread these rosaries to the
world, that we go to the children with the rosaries and the consecrations. It
is so hard to see our heavenly Mother and to know what she is saying and to
not do more. Jesus and Mary have called you here this day. You have been
chosen by them. This is the message that they wish to deliver to you, that
many souls are suffering and going to hell. Over and over again I heard our
Lady call out, "Please, please the souls are dropping into hell like
rain. You must go out to the world and spread the love of my Son."
On October 13th,
Mary said, "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 anymore for He is already too grievously offended by the sins of men.
People must say the rosary. Let them continue saying it every day."3
This is a great gift that God has given to us-rosaries from the Hearts of
Jesus and Mary. For in the rosary this week Jesus said that the times ahead
will be very dark and unless we discipline our minds by praying the rosary all
through the day, it will be very hard for us when these dark days come. Mary
is our heavenly Mother. She was taken into heaven but she is very much with
us. She has told us what we must do. We must pray the rosary. She is our
heavenly Mother. As a mother that tells a child what to eat and how to dress,
Mary is telling us this: that we must try to pray l5 decades of the rosary
every day for the times ahead will be dark and we need to have disciplined
thoughts. In praying the rosary, our thoughts become disciplined. We are
meditating on the lives of Jesus and Mary.
I saw a documentary on Fatima and in this documentary, Mary appeared to
the three children and then they showed the events of World War II. The bodies
were being thrown on a heap. And it just about tore my insides apart because I
identified so much with watching Mary appear and then nobody listened or not a
lot of people listened and World War II happened and so many people were
killed. John brought a statue and asked me to read this, "One day during
World War II, a group of soldiers wandered into a small French village which
had been badly bombed. They stood in the village square and looked at the
desolation around them. Nearly everything seemed battered and broken.
Suddenly, one of the soldiers noticed something interesting close by on the
ground. It looked like a statue. There were cracks and chips in it and several
pieces were missing. It was badly damaged. A few of the soldiers stood it up
right. Immediately they knew that it was a statue of Jesus. The men began to
look for the missing parts. They put them together as best as they could and
then they set the statue on a pedestal that was still standing, but the hands
were missing. The men looked very carefully for the hands, but they were
nowhere to be found. When the men were about to give up, one of them said he
knew exactly what to do. He made a rough sign and hung it over the arms of the
statue. The sign read, ‘I have no hands but yours.’"
Jesus gave me a message that we are His hands and we are His Heart
beating in this world. We must truly be real lovers, lovers living in this
world loving one another, one with each other. It is in going to the pure
Heart of Mary, that we will unite in this deep love affair with Jesus.
Jesus: You are My hands. You are My Heart beating in this world. My
beloved apostles, will you say "yes"? Will you go into the world?
Will you carry My light in the darkness? Will you tell the children who are
suffering how I love them? Will you go to the nursing homes and tell the
elderly how I am longing to be with them, to talk to them, to hear the words
from their lips that they love Me? You are My apostles of love.
- Messenger: We see Mary taken body and soul into heaven. We live here, we
struggle every day with so many struggles. We are so focused on the daily
events. We do not realize that soon we too will go to heaven,
Messenger: This is the anniversary of the sixth apparition at Fatima. Mary
appeared every day for fourteen months to me and delivered these rosaries.
That is all she kept saying: that we must lead others to the love of her Son,
Jesus. The message is so simple. It is love God and love one another. All the
fanciness and the frills! Why can we not live this message which is the
message of love God and love each other.
We are so focused on the things of this earth and our heavenly Mother
has appeared so many times and told us what we must do-she made it so clear at
Fatima. Do we think our Blessed Mother will change, that she will change her
peace plan? We must, we must carry this message into the world. We must do
what Jesus and Mary are asking us to do.
The Coronation of Our Lady
1996. I have called you to go into this world and to carry the rosary as your
weapon against Satan. It is through the rosary and the scapular that I will
save this world. I am Mary, your Mother. I am Our Lady of the Holy Rosary.
Messenger: We see the angel appear to Mary and ask her to be the Mother
of God. This is the Father’s plan-that Mary would be the Mother of God, and
we see Mary as crowned Queen of Heaven and Earth. Do we see the plan of the
Father unfold in our lives? That our lives are so important to help in the
salvation of many? That He is truly calling us to be apostles to carry His
love, His light, into the dark world?
Jesus: I am with you in a special way, My beloved apostles. I am calling
you this day. This is an urgent call. You must go into the world and carry My
messages of love to the souls that are hungry and suffering and in pain.
Think vividly of the moment of death. There is a soul at this moment on
the edge of death. How did they live their life? Think of the world today. Is
the world living according to the way that God has told us that we must live?
He told us that we must love God and love one another. There is a soul at this
moment on the edge of death. Where will this soul go? Did the soul love God?
Did it matter about his clothes and his house and all his riches? I heard
Mary, Our Mother, call out time and time and time again about the souls that
were going into hell. It is like the Fatima documentary-she called and people
did not heed what she said and there was World War II. Mary does not appear as
she once appeared and she has ceased giving messages as she once did. She
still gives messages but they are not as many. She says that we are not
listening to the messages that she has given and that she cannot hold back the
hand of her Son any longer.
This is the good news: if we do what Mary tells us at Fatima, we will
have peace. There will be the reign of the Sacred Heart and the triumph of her
Immaculate Heart in which souls will fervently love Jesus with the greatest
love. Her plan is so simple but Satan has blocked this plan. Satan has blocked
these rosary messages and meditations. We must pray that we can circulate the
messages of Jesus and Mary to the world that is hungry and in need of help.
One day soon we will be with God in heaven, forever and ever.
Wrapped in the embrace of the Almighty God for all eternity. Heaven is a
place of love for the Almighty God is love. We will be satisfied. We will know
love. We will be at peace.
- Mary: I am Our Lady of the Holy Rosary. I am asking you this day to
carry these rosaries into this world. It is through the rosary that you will
have peace in your hearts. My little children, you must learn to discipline
your thoughts. You must come to Our Hearts and meditate on Our lives. Our
lives will live in your lives as you meditate on the mysteries of the rosary.
- There is a time, a time of struggle. There is a time of joy. There is a
time when the Sacred Heart of Jesus will reign. The time for these things is
near at hand. My little children, I have called you on this October 13
But, hell is a place where there is no love, there is no community, there
is isolation, there is longing for God for all eternity.
He is alive, He is alive and He is with us this day. You must spread this
message to the ends of the earth.
Mary: My little children, I call you children because you are My
children, willful in your ways. I have called to you to pray my rosary and to
spread the rosary to the hurting children in this world. I am asking you on
this special day that you carry the rosary to as many souls as possible. I
will aid you in all efforts to spread the rosaries to the world. Read these
meditations to the elderly in the Nursing Homes, teach them about the power of
the rosary, bring the rosary to the children, tell them about our lives, about
our love for them.
I am Mary, your Mother, I am Our Lady of the Holy Rosary.
Song: The Rosary
Jesus: How tenderly I love you, My beloved ones. I am Jesus. I have called
you this day for this special meeting. I have called you, My apostles. Will you
go into the darkness? Will you spread the message of My love? Will you carry the
rosary into the world? Will you touch the hearts of those that are hurting and
in pain? Will you be My apostles of love? I am calling you to love God and to
love one another, to be one in your hearts, to put aside all hatred and
bitterness within your hearts, to not give into the tauntings of Satan to divide
you, to always operate in love, to focus on God. Let your hearts be filled with
"My dear friends, let us love each other, since love is from God and
everyone who loves is a child of God and knows God. Whoever fails to love does
not know God, because God is love." (1 John 4: 7-8)4
