January 31, 2006

Messenger:    He (the Holy Spirit) filled my heart with
                  fire - I sang and prayed to Him and I
                  danced to His step.

                    Let the Spirit fill our hearts -
                  Let His life be in us.

                    Though the inclement weather
                  here, the sunny skies there - it
                  is the heart inside that makes our
                  days sunny or not so sunny.

                     I was young again, the Spirit
                  filled me and my heart beat to the
                  tune to which my feet danced
                  on the pavements of this life.

                    It is the Spirit alive in
                  us that fills the soul.

                      Obedience, harmony, love,
                  peace -

                      The world can play a tune like
                  cement - clanging, hard and business-
                  like, denying how concrete it
                  may be.

                      And like hot-air balloons
                  filled with fire, I dance to the tune
                  of the Spirit - I gaze with eyes
                  of joy on the gift of the Eucharist and
                  I live by the Father's will.

                      Little do we know of the
                  joys of fire in the Spirit -

                      I woke up to the sound of the horns,
                  the busy highway filled me -
                  changing lanes in a pack of cars,
                  jumping from here to there like
                  a leap frog caught in a hole -

                      Oh Spirit fill us with
                  fire, the fire of your love -

                      Some come.
                          dismal, filled with a
                  dark cloud inside and like
                  a blue bird parched on the
                  limb, he can still sing in
                  the day, despite the dark

                      What is the fire to which
                  our hearts dance to, and the song
                  we carry even in darkness -
                  It is the tune of love and forgiveness
                  in the heart, of freedom
                  set to the pace of an angry
                  sky - a song of praise, a
                  deep love for God even in adversity.
                  Love is the match that sets
                  the fire a glow.

                  Love is the heart filled with
                      forgiveness -
                  When the devils of the night
                      advance -
                  The song of angels is still heard
                      loud and clear praising God -

                  In the night the limbs of the tree
                  look dark-gray - unapproachable -
                  against a black sky, the light
                  is hidden, the black presses
                  in, the night and its darkness
                  makes the limb look like a
                  scary place -

                      In the day one can see those
                  same limbs on a back drop
                  of sun-studded-green-leaves and
                  the blue of the sky, like the
                  blue of the garb of the Mother
                  of God - a little tiny bird flies
                  in with a precision far greater
                  than any man-made plane and a
                  small child may scurry up that
                  tree like a bug with eloquence climbing
                  a big hill.

                      The limb is no longer unapproachable
                  (in the daylight) but approachable, and it may
                  be high against the sky, but
                  not too high.

Jesus speaks:  This is not to
                  set your sights on tree limbs
                  that can break and fall to the
                  ground, but to set your eyes
                  on higher things. In fact I tell
                  you not to climb the
                  tree limbs leave that to the
                  birds and bugs and small animals -
                  climb the limbs that lead you
                  to higher things in Me -

                      the pews of the Church, hewn
                  from the wood of trees are your
                  magic carpets of joy - a joy
                  beyond all telling -

                      I am the tree of life and
                  my pew takes you to the
                  Eucharist - you raise in
                  spiritual ways up and up and
                  up when you come to Me -
                  above you is a dome of light -
                  and your hearts vibrate as you
                  float in the blue skies, snuggled
                  in the garments of My Mother.

                      The Spirit runs your balloon
                  and your heart plays a tune of grandeur
                  as you dance the golden streets
                  I light with My love.

                      You miss the gift of My
                  Eucharist, many of you, oh yes
                  you say - I'm not Catholic,
                  but when I sent an angel (not literally) to
                  tell you about the Catholic Church
                  over and over again - you plugged
                  up your ears and your heart
                  sunk deep in your chest -
                  looking for something more -
                  but not listening when your
                  good friend spoke to you.

                      You know there are lots
                  of baptized Catholics who
                  have left the Catholic Church
                  and one Blue Book might get
                  them back in a hurry, but
                  you just didn't share one.

                      You may have never left and although
                  the Blue Book led you to a deeper
                  life in Me - you didn't see how
                  I talk to all in My Blue Books -
                  not just the people who go to
                  Mass every day or every

                      The people of Africa thirst,
                  the people of Spain wonder,
                  My people of this earth deserve
                  the letters of My love, but
                  because of your little vision and
                  the focus on your own heart -
                  you missed the words when I
                  spoke - "Spread My Blue Books
                  to the ends of this earth."

                      Oh you are narrow-minded,
                  with the gunk of the dark
                  clouds in your heart and when
                  I put out My daily message
                  you see yourself again -
                      Not the whole world and
                      I speak and speak

                      Now listen - for over 10
                  years My Mother has appeared
                  to My visionary and messenger and
                  if a priest tells you a church,
                  not Catholic, is made up of
                  75% people, who were Catholics,
                  that were baptized, do you
                  not comprehend yet -

                      Mary's daily visits
                      14 months - every day saying
                  over and over again.

                      Jesus is truly present in His
                  Divinity and humanity - no less
                  present than when He walked
                  the earth -

                      And some of the graced Catholics
                  say Oh repetitious - we don't
                  need your 5ths and 13ths -

                      Do you anger Me that you
                  even raise yourself in
                  knowledge over Me to tell Me
                  what message I should deliver
                  because it is too long and inconvenient
                  for you to pray while I appear -
                  My face before you.

                      Oh and you don't even see
                  the pride in how you speak -
                  you see with a little brain and
                  in My goodness I appear every
                  day, all day, at My site in
                  Florida and all you do is focus
                  on yourselves and your black

                      Well when I carried My
                  cross to Calvary, those
                  praying beneath My face comforted
                  Me in My utter pain, while
                  I gave My flesh and Blood for
                  your soul and all the souls of
                  the earth. Get down on your
                  knees and examine your consciences
                  how you have taken My gifts and
                  responded in pride blocking
                  My plan.

                      How long would you carry
                  the cross for the salvation of
                  souls, and how long would you
                  hang to your death -

                      Well when you pray under
                  My face, My image, you help
                  release the grace that I
                  gained for your sins and the sins
                  of the human race. Could you
                  not sit as long as I hung on
                  the cross - your answer was "no"
                  and you told others, complained,
                  whined and blocked the very
                  place, My garden, where I called
                  others to come and pray for 3 hours
                  or longer -

                      I watch you sit at your ball
                  game and drink your beer talking
                  about vitamins and yourselves,
                  I heard every word you said
                  for 10 years and I cried tears of blood
                  as I carried My cross for
                  souls on the way to Calvary -

                      You have told the world about
                  your love, but have been so
                  unloving in your heart, bitter,
                  jealous and playing games out
                  of habit.

                      I heard your words to a very
                  fervent person wanting to pray
                  and you turned them away -
                  My leader, turned them away -
                  and My Mother appeared for 7 1/2 years
                  on the building, only to yield
                  to My face -

                      Others ignored Me entirely -

                      The Father sent Mary a messenger
                  from God.

                      Our Lady of Guadalupe in
                  the Americas,

                      Our Lady of Fatima in
                          the Americas.

                      Our Lady of Clearwater
                          and you wanted to
                          deliver your song -

                      Your song came to make
                          you great and
                      Mary cried tears of Blood
                          for the souls going
                          to hell -

                  Your little ones are being indoctrinated
                      this day -

                  The set-up is there.

                  Satan wants souls for hell and
                      since when Mary appeared
                      and delivered these messages
                      11 years ago -

                  More and more souls are being
                      lost - more and more and more
                      and more and you won't
                      even pray where I appear
                      and My Mother appeared 7 1/2 years
                      and still remains there with

                      Oh I grow so tired to watch
                  every month, every prayer
                  service the same distraction -
                  Don't you get it yet -------

                  On April 5, 1995 I called for
                      the 5th services, I
                      have given meditations -
                      apparitions - gifts galore and
                      you have come - focused on
                      yourselves and I have asked for
                      these hours of prayer.

Mary speaks:    Souls are dropping into
                        hell not like rain, but
                        being whipped in hell
                        by their own willfulness
                        to sin.

                        Like a hurricane, like
                           Wilma - a clean
                           sweep in minutes and they
                           have given into the devil -

                           My Son Jesus hung for 3 agonizing
                       hours on the cross for the souls.
                       He, the Son of God, gave His life
                       for His precious souls -

                           He came to this earth, the
                       Son of God - He took on flesh -
                       He came a little baby and
                       He died and rose for His
                       precious souls and when you
                       were called to distribute
                       His letters of love, all you
                       could think of was yourself, and
                       you wouldn't pray as He
                       asked on the 5th's and 13th's or
                       during the retreats in China.

                           My Son is running these
                       prayer services to give Him
                       honor and praise, can't you
                       sing and pray for souls - He hung,
                       His Body battered and bleeding and
                       He died for the precious souls
                       He loved so much.

Jesus speaks:  I DIED FOR YOU
                         I DIED FOR YOU

                      Don't give into satan -

                      See the big picture.

                       Persecuting the messenger does
                           not please the Father -

                       Helping Me reach the souls -
                           praying on the 5ths and
                           13ths will please

                           I will tell you a story -
                       a little boy went out and his
                       mind was full of wonder and
                       excitement -

                           At night fall he was still
                       out in the field and he was lost -
                       the darkness came in and he finally
laid down not having a choice,
                       he thought.

                           The sounds of the night pressed
                       in, the cold went through to
                       his bones, he felt, the darkness
                       scary and he thought he would never
                       see the light and feel the warmth
                       of the sun again. The night was
                       so long, he laid his little head
                       down on a rock he covered with
                       his jacket-hood and he cried and cried
                       until he couldn't cry no more, he
                       felt, and then he remembered how his
                       grandma told him to pray many times
                       and he prayed and cried intermittently -
                       when he felt he could hardly take it -
                       a little light came from far in the
                       east and soon he could see and he cried
                       with joy - Oh God thank you he called.

                           Oh you want to make your paradise
                       here below and you try and it doesn't work
                       does it? I set the stars in the sky
                       to light the night and the sun to light
                       the day.

                           I am God I created you and the
                       world -

                           need I say more -
                           your life is temporary -

                           You don't get it -
                           Churches are closing
                           Few priests

                           I SHOUT TO YOU

                           I am truly present in My Divinity and
                               humanity in the Eucharist -

                       Don't tell Me how to write My
                           messages -

                           You have a lot of pride -
                           you with your little mind
                           think you know so much -

                       I am love.

                       I have forgiven you over and over again -

                       I know your heart - you don't                      
                           fool Me

                       You are not sinless -
                       You, some of you, try to prove
                           you are and you live a lie!

                           Only in a soft and loving heart
                       will you find peace.

                       Sing: Loving and Forgiving


Excerpt from January 30, 2006 message


This is a profound message. Are you ready to look at your brother and really love them as you see Jesus in them? Know that we are to love them like we are loving Jesus. Are you ready to do this? To love and forgive, act in love, to learn the lesson from our mistakes and to move ahead in love. To build a stronger bridge, not to sit on a "pity-pot" and whine the day long, to say "yes" to love, to forgive, to say kindly what is really in your heart, know others can unite intimately.

March 26, 1996

Very carefully discerned by Fr. Carter

Messenger:  I came to All Saints Church before a beautiful Monstrance of gold that contained Our beloved Savior. He was adorned in light, the altar beneath shone with the brightest light and the cross behind was entirely silhouetted with the same celestial light. I was overwhelmed with the presence of God and cried deeply from the awe of it all.

    To be so aware of the Almighty God truly present in His splendor and glory—to know the presence of God, to see the glistening of the gold and the light and reflection of the cross behind Him—my beauteous love—words do not exist to describe the rapture of a heavenly embrace! I cry because of the immense awe within my being to know Him. God truly present in His majesty and glory and oh, God, I behold the presence of a heavenly court. You opened wide the heavens and lifted up the veil and I knew You in Your splendor and glory. I behold God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

    "I am the Way, the Truth and the Life." He is the Almighty God. He shows us the celestial lights with which He will light this earth. Many must surrender their hearts to His Heart and Mary's heart. It is in surrendering, the Spirit will move in the hearts of men and the light of God will shine on the darkened earth. Not with a light that you comprehend, but a light that is divinely granted—a light beyond all lights, a vision beyond all visions. It takes the surrender of minds and hearts to God. The Spirit cannot move in us when we are in control. Surrender and give Him our heart and He will make us fishers of men.

    We are His apostles in the Shepherds of Christ Movement. He is sending us out into the world to light the hearts with His burning love. We are chosen by Him and He is giving us abundant graces to grow in our union with Him. He will light this world with His burning love. Our hearts must be open. We must surrender and let go and reach beyond the senses, reach with our hearts. Pray for faith, pray for the vision of God.

Note:  I cried all through this writing, having the presence of God and being in great ecstasy to behold Him. May God touch your heart and may His Spirit move within you. May you be filled with the grace of God to surrender and let Him accomplish a great work within you.

    And I was filled on high with His miraculous light and He reached down and spoke within me. I was filled as never before and knew the presence of God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Note:  As I finished, the bells at All Saints Church rang at 9:00 A.M. As I began to experience the immense splendor, the bells of 8:00 rang. Words do not express anything that I saw or experienced or know from this ecstasy. This was the greatest and the first of three visions, which defined clearly to me our role in the Shepherds of Christ Movement. Jesus defines clearly the role of Fr. Carter in this great mission given to him by the Father.

For Fr. Carter from Jesus:

Jesus speaks:  To him who has eyes to see, they will see - not with earthly vision, but with the eyes of faith, and to him who has ears to hear, he will hear with the fluttering of the Spirit moving within him.

    I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. I am the Almighty God. I say to the rocks to fall and they fall and to the grass, grow, and it grows, and to the sun, shine, and it shines. I give to you My love in these letters. Filled with My love, you will conquer this earth, not with weapons and powder or force, but with fires of My love. The fire will wipe out the hatred in the cold hearts and the earth will be covered with My celestial light. The earth will rock and I will appear in the heavens adorned in power and glory and the contrite hearts will be saved. I came to separate the sheep from the goats, the light from the darkness. I come and no one pays Me heed.

    To you, My beloved son, Father Carter, I have sent you on a mission to spread this fire that will cover this earth. The hearts of men will turn from their sick and desolate ways to hearts gentle as a little lamb.

    There will be one flock and one Shepherd and My staff will rule over all. Hearts consecrated to Our Hearts will lead the light across the earth. This light will be a light of intense brightness, brighter and hotter than any light from a flame. It will be the fire of God's love. The Spirit will move in the hearts of all consecrated to My Heart, and you will know how fire truly spreads, for the love of God is a fire. It is vibrant. It is encompassing. It is smoldering, burning deep within and speedily spreading on the outside. No fire on this earth can ever describe the burning embers that burn from the Sacred Heart of Jesus. No fire burns like the fires coming from My Heart and hearts filled with the love from the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

    I have written your name, Fr. Carter, in My Heart, never ever to be blotted out and this earth will be renewed with the fire of God's love through you. You are My beloved priest-son, forever, according to the order of Melchizedek. Most holy and most sacred are your hands that consecrate the Host and write My precious newsletter for My beloved priest-sons. You are never unguarded.

God's Blue Book 6


January 31, 1995

Messenger:  I began to write to Jesus and

My Jesus,

Then I heard Jesus speak:

Jesus:  Come to Me all who are weary and find rest for your soul. Many are called, but few are chosen. You are being chosen by God for this work, as you let go more and more I will be able to operate through you.

Messenger:  I went to Fr. Carter's Monday night to pray the rosary, Jesus appeared lighter and lighter and lighter.

Jesus:  As I call you more and more you must let go of yourself. To worry about your performance is useless. To try to control it is not in My plan.

    I want to operate from you, you must let go and let Me do My work through you. Pray the Prayer for Union with Me.

    Many are called, few are chosen. I have called many to the Center, it is in surrendering yourselves that you will do My work. It takes very close union with Me to do the job I am asking each person to do.

Jesus:  I call for adoration. I want you to come and spend your time with Me in front of the tabernacle. I am Jesus, I call out, you answer or you do not answer. You do not answer because you do not want to believe it is truly Me who is calling.

    If you truly believed that Jesus Christ the Son of God calls you would listen to Me. I am truly here and I am truly calling you this day.

    Oh My beloved children, look at your world. Do you see the state it is in? Do you see men's hardened hearts, their focus is on this world. Many have turned their backs on God. They have hardened their hearts. The power is in the Eucharist. Come to Me sit in front of the tabernacle and I will give you all you need to be soldiers of My love.

    You are marching into the troops of many who are dead in sin. It is only in your deep union with Me that you will make a difference to the hurting souls. You must rely on Me and let Me operate through you, this is a big job. If you are joined as one with Me, then I will operate through you. I am a Divine Person. I know all things from all time, I know the state of each man's soul, I know the Father's Plan. I want union with you. Pray to the Spirit to lead you. Come to My tabernacle and sit with Me. You will receive your answers there. Attend daily Mass and communion and pray after communion.

    I want union with you. You are My soldiers. Many are called, few are chosen, you are called and chosen this day. You are called to great union with Me, Jesus Christ. This My children takes time, it takes commitment, it takes surrender. Pray the Prayer for Union with Me every day.

    I am your Savior, I died, I gave My flesh and blood for you. I am God, I was born a man for love of you. The power is in the Eucharist. I came to earth, I died, I rose to give you new life. Now I remain with you dear ones in the Eucharist. Pray, Pray, pray for your priests. The devil will try to stop this Movement. You must realize you are being called here, by Jesus Christ. You are My soldiers of love. Your arms are your hearts filled with My love. You are marching on the world. You are praying for the Church. This is My Church, your prayers are so important. Pray the morning offering every day for your priests, they are under attack. I beg you to take Me seriously. I beg you to answer this call. I am Jesus Christ and I call you this day. Turn your minds and hearts to God. Totally surrender. Consecrate your hearts daily to My Mother's heart and to My Sacred Heart. Say the Prayer for Union with Me. Your answers and your strength are found in front of the tabernacle. I am Jesus, I come to you this day. My Heart is burning with endless love for you. Please harken to My pleading, it is in your union with Me that you will light the world with the fire of My burning Heart. PRAY, PRAY, PRAY, I am here this day with you, will you answer My call?

Feast of St. John Bosco

6:30 pm Shepherds of Christ Meeting

Before the Tabernacle

Sorrowful Mysteries


The Agony in the Garden

1.  Messenger:  Jesus loved us so much that He came to this earth born a man. And He was in agony in the Garden. He saw before Him all that He was about to suffer and He could have stopped it all at any moment. But He was willing to go through this suffering. It was the Father's will. The Father willed that He suffered for greatest love of us. Jesus was willing to go through this for us. God loves us so much.

2.  Song:  A Song from Jesus 

3.  They came to a plot of land called Gethsemane, and he said to his disciples, ‘Stay here while I pray.’ Then he took Peter and James and John with him. And he began to feel terror and anguish. And he said to them, ‘My soul is sorrowful to the point of death. Wait here, and stay awake.’ And going on a little further he threw himself on the ground and prayed that, if it were possible, this hour might pass him by. ‘Abba,  Father!’ he said, ‘For you everything is possible. Take this cup away from me. But let it be as you, not I, would have it.’ He came back and found them sleeping, and he said to Peter, ‘Simon, are you asleep? Had you not the strength to stay awake one hour? Stay awake and pray not to be put to the test. The spirit is willing enough, but human nature is weak.’ Again he went away and prayed, saying the same words. And once more he came back and found them sleeping, their eyes were so heavy; and they could find no answer for him. He came back a third time and said to them, ‘You can sleep on now and have your rest. It is all over. The hour has come. Now the Son of man is to be betrayed into the hands of sinners. Get up! Let us go! My betrayer is not far away.’   Mark 14: 32-42

4.  Messenger:  Put yourself there in the darkened night. Be with Jesus as He sees before Him all the souls that will reject Him, refuse Him and treat Him with such indifference.

5.  Messenger:  Jesus loved us so much and His Heart suffered such anguish that His sweat was great drops of blood on the ground.

6.  Messenger:  He calls to us this day to realize that He is truly here and He is present in His Divinity and humanity in the Tabernacle. Jesus loves us so much.

7.  Jesus:  Oh how I love you.

8.  Messenger:  Mary is appearing.

9.  Messenger:  Mary appears to tell us about Jesus' love.

10.  Sing:  Ashes



Jesus is Scourged at the Pillar

1.  Jesus:  They beat My flesh! They tore My flesh until it hung from My body! I was covered with blood and they laughed and they scoffed at Me. Those who beat Me were the hearts that I loved so dearly. I ask you this day, do you know the love that I have for you? I truly was scourged at the pillar for greatest love of you that you may one day get to heaven. I call out to you to take me seriously. This is your calling to come for My love, to be soldiers of love to a world that is filled with pain. Will you love your brothers for me this day?

2.  Messenger:  It is so easy to turn your head and look the other way. It is so easy to not want to look at ourselves and change, but Jesus is truly present in the tabernacle. He is here with us. He remains with us because He loves us so much. The call that Jesus makes to us is an urgent call. He is calling out to us to spend our every waking moment spreading His love to every person that we touch.

3.  Messenger:  Purify your hearts! Make them clean so they may be full of His love.

4.  Messenger:  Mary says "Be Good."

5.  Mary:  Jesus shed His Blood for you.

6.  Mary:  Jesus is truly present here today.

7.  Mary:  Be Good.

8.  Mary:  Be like Jesus.

9.  Jesus:  I love you.

10.  Jesus:  Come to the Shepherds of Christ Movement -- be Apostles of My Sacred Heart.


Jesus is Crowned with a Crown of Thorns

1.  Messenger:  Jesus never turns His back on us. Jesus is always with us. He is there with our every breath, with our every heartbeat. He was there when they crowned Him with a sharp crown of piercing thorns, with a heart that was filled with such immense love that we will not fully be able here below to realize the love that He has in His Heart. They clothed Jesus with a dirty robe that they put on top of His bleeding wounds. Then they spit on Him. They mocked Him. They kicked Him. These were the souls that He loved so much. These were the souls that He suffered for.

2.  Messenger:  Jesus suffered for each one of us this very day because He loved us so much. He came to show us the way. As we meditate on His Passion, think of how He was and how we live these mysteries in our lives today. How much are we like Jesus in our life this day?

3.  Messenger:  Jesus does not demand our perfection. He wants us to constantly grow more and more in our image of Him.

4.  Messenger:  Jesus wants us to get to Heaven. He gives to the priest the power to take away our sins. He wants us to come to Him through the priest and tell the priest our sins so that we may be cleansed and have a pure heart to more and more love as He wants us to love.

5.  Jesus:  O My Beloved Ones!

Purify yourselves. It is only by purifying your heart that you can more and more love as I call you to love. A heart that is filled with debris is not open to give the love that I am calling you to give to this world. Time is short. Your stay here is so short compared to all of eternity. Go to the priest. Confess your sins so that you may be pure and ready at any moment to meet your Maker!

6.  Sing:  Crown Him with Many Crowns

7.  Song:  The Rosary Song

8.  Song:  Only This I Want

9.  Then the governor’s soldiers took Jesus with them into the Praetorium and collected the whole cohort round him. And they stripped him and put a scarlet cloak round him, and having twisted some thorns into a crown they put this on his head and placed a reed in his right hand. To make fun of him they knelt to him saying, ‘Hail, king of the Jews!’ And they spat on him and took the reed and struck him on the head with it. And when they had finished making fun of him, they took off the cloak and dressed him in his own clothes and led him away to crucifixion.   Matthew 27: 27-31

10.  Jesus:  They whipped Me and crowned Me with thorns.



Jesus Carries His Cross

1.  Messenger:  They gave to Jesus a heavy cross that they put on His shoulder. He carried it. It was laden with the sins of the world. His Mother walked beside Him. This was the Son that she held as a baby. This was the Son that she cared for. And now she saw her precious Son so covered with blood, so bruised, crowned with a crown of piercing thorns! She sees Him as He walks along and she cannot lift a hand to help Him.

2.  R.  But Mary cries out to us to see her Son as He walked with a cross on His back. (Message from Rita: Jesus told me once after Communion that He is here and we receive Him in Communion. And He is no less present than the day that He carried His cross on His back and begged me over and over again to tell people that He was there. And He said, "if I were walking across this Chapel with My cross on My back, do you think people would leave? Tell them!") He calls out to you today to spread the message of His true presence. That He is truly here in His Divinity and humanity in the Tabernacle with us this evening. And if we are silent, people will continue to be ignorant and not realize what Jesus has said to me.

3.  Messenger:  Jesus' eyes peered into the eyes of His Beloved Mother, and in that look is such intimacy and such love. But such suffering for each of them! Mary to see Her Beloved Son, to know His Heart so well. And He to see His Beloved Mother suffer so terribly. The pains that were in Her heart! Mary's face covered with tears and red. This was Jesus' Mother that He loved! And Mary suffered and Jesus suffered so because these Two Hearts love each one of us so much. Can we not answer Jesus' call today to be apostles to spread His love to this world? Can we sit back and turn our backs and say it will get done when He is truly talking to us and telling us that it is a job for us to do and that you are His mighty warriors to do His work and He will do it through you if you allow yourself to be used by Him.

4.  Messenger:  He calls us to love of God and love of one another. He wants us to truly love our brothers.

5.  Messenger:  Let us carry the little crosses He gives us.

6.  Song:  Lord Let Me Walk

7.  Song:  Little Baby Hands and Feet

8.  Song:  God's Love

9.  Song:  Teach Me to Love with Your Heart

10.  Song:  God's Love


Jesus is Crucified and Dies on the Cross

1.  Jesus:  I gave My all for love of you. I gave My flesh. I gave My blood. I gave My life for love of you. I truly came to this earth. I loved My life and I gave it for love of you. What more do you want?

2.  Messenger:  Mary stood beneath the cross in such agony as she watched her Son hang for three hours to His death.

3.  Jesus:  I love you so much.

4.  Mary:  Jesus loves you so much.

5.  Mary:  I love you so much.

6.  Song:  A Song from Jesus

7.  Jesus:  I love you.

8.  Song:  The Rosary Song

9.  Song:  I Love You Jesus

10.  Song:  At the Cross her Station Keeping


This rosary was prayed before the Sorrowful Mother at 6:30pm just prior to the Shepherds of Christ meeting. Many people were present.

Jesus the Sacred Heart and Mary appeared.




This rosary was given while the Blessed Mother appeared all white in the daily visits when she appeared to me. It is one of the rosaries that was not put in the Red Rosary Book. (It was given during the Shepherds of Christ Core Meeting at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center, the old seminary and transcribe from a tape, received live.)


January 31, 1995

Feast of St. John Bosco


Joyful Mysteries

The Annunciation

1.  Messenger:  The angel Gabriel appeared to Mary and asked her to be the Mother of Jesus.

2.  Mary always complied to the will of the Father. She said "yes".

3.  Mary was filled with the Holy Spirit and the Word was made Flesh.

4.  There was such intimacy between the child Jesus and Mary from the first moment of His conception.

5.  Jesus is with us this day. Jesus is in our brother. Mary cared for the child Jesus.


John 3: 16

          For this is how God loved the world: 
          he gave his only Son, 
          so that everyone who believes in him 
             may not perish 
          but may have eternal life. 

7.  Christ is the Mediator of this grace life. 

8.  Do we realize that God became man? He loves us so much. Think of that! That God loves us so much that He sent His Son and He took on flesh for greatest love of us!

9.  The more we realize the immense love God truly has for us, the more we will trust Him. We will be better able to surrender and let go if we realize more and more that God took on flesh for love of us. Jesus died on the cross. He gave His flesh. He gave His blood. He rose on the third day and ascended into heaven. This is God! He cares so much for man!

10.  The most Sacred Heart of the child Jesus was formed in the womb of the Virgin Mary.

Song between decades:  Ave, Ave, Ave Maria


The Visitation

1.  Messenger:  The angel told Mary that her cousin Elizabeth, in her old age, had conceived of a son and Mary made haste to the hill country to tell her cousin Elizabeth her good news and to be with her to help her.

2.  When she arrived at Elizabeth's, Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit and she cried out:    

...‘Of all women you are the most blessed, and blessed is the fruit of your womb. Why should I be honoured with a visit from the mother of my Lord? Luke 1: 42-43

3.  The servant usually goes to the Master, but God in Mary's womb went to Elizabeth. He loves us so much. He is the Master, but He comes to us. Mary carried Jesus in her womb. She went to visit her cousin Elizabeth. Elizabeth said:

Why should I be honoured with a visit from the mother of my Lord?  Luke 1: 43

4.  Christ waits for us to come and visit with Him. He longs for us to come and be with Him. He is truly present there in His Divinity and humanity, no less present than the day He was carried by Mary in her womb when she went to visit Elizabeth. He waits for us in the Tabernacle. He remains there out of greatest love for us. The Master waits for us, a mere human! He waits for us to come. How His Heart was wounded for the endless hours He would spend in the Tabernacle and His beloved souls would forget Him and not come to Him. We do not realize the great gift that we have, that God waits for us to come and be with Him.

5.  When Mary went to visit her cousin Elizabeth, Elizabeth said the child within her womb leapt for joy. John the Baptist prepared the way for Jesus. In the womb of his mother, John leapt for joy.

6.  Mary was filled with the Holy Spirit and cried out in a loud voice, the Magnificat.

7.  My soul doth magnify the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God, my Savior.

8.  And Mary said: My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord  Luke 1: 46

9.  for the Almighty has done great things for me. Holy is his name,  Luke 1: 49

10.  Song:  See the Eyes that Look at Mary - verse 1

Song between decades:  Ave, Ave, Ave Maria


The Birth of Jesus

1.  Messenger:  This is God! Jesus comes into the world a little baby. Think of the majesty of the Almighty God. This is the Almighty God. He comes in a little human baby body.

2.  Jesus comes this day to us in the Eucharist. We walk quietly to the altar and receive the Almighty God. We see the consecrated Host, God comes to us in His Divinity and humanity.

3.  Song:  I Love You Jesus

4.  We see those things that are before our eyes. We do not see too good sometimes. The reality is, this is God's world! Our every breath, our every heartbeat depends on Him. He is truly present in the Eucharist in the Tabernacle! He waits us! We see only with limited vision.

5.  Holy Spirit descend upon us. Open our eyes more and more to see as God wishes us to see. Help us to know that Jesus is truly present. That He, in His Divinity and humanity, waits with such love for us to come and be with Him in front of the Tabernacle.

6.  Help us to see Jesus in our brothers. 

7.  God became man! He took on our flesh, we are Jesus' brother.

8.  Holy Spirit descend upon us and help us to see more and more clearly the things of God so that we can live more deeply in Him and know His Divine Love. We are blind. We do not see. But we ask You to please open up our eyes. Open our ears. Let us see beyond what is visible with our human eyes and know the presence of God that is in our midst this day that surrounds us in one another. The life in a blade of grass comes from God. We are so blind! Open up our eyes, dwell in our hearts. Be alive inside of us with the fire of God's love so that we may more be filled by Him live in Him know His Divine Love. Nothing here can compare even minutely to Your gifts given to us, which our souls crave. 

Song:  God's Love

Give to us, O Holy Spirit, Your fire, Your grace, to know and love God more and more each waking moment of this day, so this life that is alive in us will radiate to this world, the light that shines in the darkness which is the Light of God's Love.

9.  Jesus came a baby into this world the Son of God!

10.  The Father loved us so much that He sent His Son!

Open our eyes to the fire of God's Love!

Song:  Come Holy Ghost

Song between decades:  Ave, Ave, Ave Maria


The Presentation of Jesus in the Temple

1.  Messenger:  Simeon had been told by the Holy Spirit that He would not die until He saw the child Jesus. The Holy Spirit led him into the temple and he saw Mary, Joseph and the child, Jesus.

2.  Simeon said he was now ready to die. He prophesied the sufferings of Jesus and Mary. He told Mary that a sword, too, would pierce her soul. From that point on, whenever Mary looked at her beloved child, she remembered the prophecy of Simeon. Think of looking at your child and knowing he would suffer such immense suffering.

3.  And when the day came for them to be purified in keeping with the Law of Moses, they took him up to Jerusalem to present him to the Lord—observing what is written in the Law of the Lord: Every first–born male must be consecrated to the Lord—   Luke 2: 22-23

4.  From this point on, Mary's heart was pierced with a sword.

5.  As Jesus was presented in the temple, let us place ourselves in Jesus' Heart and ask Mary as she holds the child Jesus, to tuck us in His Heart and present us to the Father.

6.  Give us more and more a Heart like Yours, O Jesus, so we can more love the Father, the Son and Holy Spirit and Mary with a heart that is likened to Yours.

7.  Mary, through your Immaculate Heart, lead us ever closer to the love of Jesus. You, who know Jesus' Heart, who was with Him all through His life, who was with Him from the first moment He was conceived in your womb, who is with Him united so closely this day, lead us ever closer to the love of His Most Sacred Heart.

8.  As your heart was pierced with a sword seven times, lead us more and more to realize the immensity of His love for us.

9.  Song:  See the Eyes that Look at Mary

10.  Dear Holy Spirit, as we unite more and more to our Mother Mary, transform us more and more into the image of Jesus and lead us ever closer to the love of our Father.

Song between decades:  Ave, Ave, Ave Maria


The Finding of Jesus in the Temple

1.  Messenger:  When Jesus was twelve years old, He was taken up to the Temple for the feast of the Passover. When Mary and Joseph had left, they did not realize that Jesus had been left behind.

2.  After they had gone a day's journey, they realized that Jesus was still in Jerusalem. With such sorrow in their hearts, they returned searching for their beloved Son.

3.  Think of how it would be to lose your child!

4.  A sword, too, shall pierce your heart, O Mary!

5.  When they found the child Jesus, He was teaching the doctors in the temple.

6.  Jesus, as You taught the doctors in the temple, teach us your truths. Give us Your grace so we can see more clearly all the truths that You will reveal to us.

7.  Holy Spirit, give to us the gifts of wisdom, knowledge and understanding so we can be closer to God.

8.  They were overcome when they saw him, and his mother said to him, ‘My child, why have you done this to us? See how worried your father and I have been, looking for you.’ He replied, ‘Why were you looking for me? Did you not know that I must be in my Father’s house?’ But they did not understand what he meant.   Luke 2: 48-50

9.  Mary, if we ever wander from the Heart of your beloved Son, lead us ever closer to His Heart through your Heart.

10.  Unite us more and more to the love of the Trinity, to the love of your Two Hearts - Jesus and Mary!

Song between decades:  Ave, Ave, Ave Maria


At the end of the rosary, Rita stated that Mary, our Blessed Mother, wanted Rita to tell us that she appeared "all white" and glistening. Her face was beautiful and changing. She was so beautiful. There was movement - her face changed. She wanted us to know that she was very present with us during the praying of this rosary ... that she and her Son were calling us to be Jesus' soldiers of love!

This rosary was prayed at the beginning of the Shepherds of Christ Meeting. Marty led the rosary. Many people were present.
