Messenger:           Mary appeared to me. She was so beautiful.

                            Her mouth moved much of the time —

                            She was praying with me she said.

                            She was clothed in gold and

                            then at times the light was so bright words

                                do not exist to describe it.

                            Her face was so very gentle, her eyes looked upon

                                me at one point.

                            Her arms were downward and outstretched.

                            She was calling her children in colleges

                                everywhere to teach the truth, she wants

                                her Son to be the King and Center of all the hearts

                                on this earth.

                            She said Jesus wants big pictures of the Sacred

                                Heart and Immaculate Heart in

                                schools and in Churches, in priest


                                She said we should do what we can to get

                            the pictures and images of Jesus Sacred

                            Heart and her Immaculate Heart in


                                She said Jesus wants people to be

                            Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of

                            Jesus. Information about this is at the

                            end of the message.

                                She wants people to ask their schools

                            to put a picture of the Sacred Heart in

                            a prominent place in schools so

                            all there will honor Him and make

                            Him the King and Center of their hearts.

                                 She wants her picture, picture of

                            her Immaculate Heart in schools

                            next to Jesus' Sacred Heart.

                                She said They want pictures in the homes

                            and places on this earth. She said

                            to tell those in the United States to do this.



                                Thank you for all who prayed for 2

                            urgent intentions. Thanks to God for

                            answering, please continue to pray and

                            thank Him for answering the prayers.

                            Please pray for a special intention and

                            for funds—we so very desperately need

                            them I just keep praying. Please pray

                            united on the hour for a big donor.

                                Please continue to pray for

                            2 urgent intentions.

                                Pray for Sue.

                                Pray for the 5th.

                                Pray for the 13th.


                                                            September 30, 2002

                            Dear Rita,

                                I give my heart to Jesus and

                            Mary with you in love.

                                Tonight my mom and brother & sister

                            prayed with us. Carl is 5 years,

                            Kateri is 3 years.

                                They prayed with us,

                            Carl whistled and sang the rosary

                            song. When it was time to pray

                            the rosary I gave them Color

                            Books. They colored the whole

                            time. They did not want to leave.

                            At the closing song "Little Child"

                            Kateri was humming along.

                            They were all very filled with

                            joy. I thought you would like

                            to hear that!

                                                Love, Jane


October 2, 2002 message continues

Messenger:    We would like to account this about 
                            a vision August 13, 1996 when we 
                            prayed at Tom's Farm for the 
                            Tuesday night Shepherds of Christ 


Vision as seen by Ellen, August 13, 1996
Arlinghaus' Farm, Shepherds of Christ meeting

"I had a profound experience this evening. As soon as the rosary started, I looked up towards the sun and I couldn't turn away. I realized there was a covering over the sun and that I would perhaps witness the miracle of the sun. Instead, after a few rotations, I began to see clear pictures: first, I saw the cross, Mary and Joseph holding our baby Jesus, and then what seemed to be a large Host, the Monstrance, and an angel holding up the Host, but I wasn't sure so I closed my eyes and said to myself, 'Dear Lord, I would love to see an angel as I have never seen one.' And with that within a split second a huge figure appeared, bigger than life, and came crashing to the earth, right before our group and returned. It was St. Michael! I recognized him immediately - his short, curly blond hair, his armor, which was brownish, but the whole figure of Michael was orange. His presence filled the whole area with bright light. It is difficult to describe, but I see St. Michael before me now as he appeared and want to share this with everyone because, surely, he has appeared to assure us of his protection for the Shepherds of Christ."

Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus

My dear fellow Associate Members,

Jesus is calling special apostles to join a new division of the Shepherds of Christ Movement. Here is a message from Jesus given to Father Carter:

    My beloved priest-companion, I am requesting that a new prayer movement be started under the direction of Shepherds of Christ Ministries. I am asking for volunteers who are willing to pray before the Blessed Sacrament for one hour, twice-weekly. Members of the Shepherds of Christ prayer chapters, as well as others, are to be invited to join this movement.

    These apostles are to pray for the intentions I am giving you. For part of the hour they are to use the prayers of the Shepherds of Christ Associates Handbook. They may spend the rest of the hour as they so choose.

    I will use this new prayer movement within My Shepherds of Christ Ministries in a powerful way to help in the renewal of My Church and the world. I will give great graces to those who join this movement. The name, Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus, is to be given to this movement.

    I am inviting My beloved Rita Ring to be coordinator for this activity.

    I pour out the great love of My Sacred Heart to all. I am Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the flock.

    This is indeed a special calling for us to unite in one heart with His Eucharistic Heart and pray for the following intentions:

  1. For the spread of the devotion to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary culminating in the reign of the Sacred Heart and the triumph of the Immaculate Heart.
  2. For the Pope.
  3. For all bishops of the world.
  4. For all priests.
  5. For all sisters and brothers in the religious life.
  6. For all members of the Shepherds of Christ Movement, and for the spread of this movement to the world.
  7. For all members of the Catholic Church.
  8. For all members of the human family.
  9. For all souls in purgatory.

Mary speaks:

I ask you to come to my image site
on the 5th of October.


Excerpt from September 17, 2002

                                I wish the store to carry the Christmas
                                    materials immediately, coloring
                                    books, Blue Books, Spanish Coloring

                                I wish image rosaries be made available in
                                    the store and on Tom's farm.

                                These must also be ordered, it takes
                                    months for their delivery, the requirement
                                    has been made the materials are covered
                                    before the order.

                                I ask you to have Christmas presents that
                                    reflect Mary's image.

                                What a gift I give to the earth, you
                                    should tell people about this especially at
