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.  


                February 13, 2020

                R. The story God is teaching us is love –
                Loving Jesus will help us find our
                way to eternal life –

                Loving may take effort we think, but
                when the Holy Spirit takes
                over and gives us a special gift, we are
                just absorbed in love – God's grace in us –
                But this usually comes with surrendering
                more and more to God -- letting go – giving Him
                our will and our life, but being willing
                to change and be taught.

                Thinking we know it all is a trap –
                We, in fact, know so little, even about

                God did not put us here by ourselves,
                we need to realize God is guiding us
                all the time, by inspiration from the Holy Spirit,
                by experiences past and present, by
                others He sends in our lives to help
                us grow and see what we need to see.

                There must be change and learning.
                We are here to grow in the image and likeness
                of God.

                We have roots that are wounded and need

                These impure roots keep coming up if we keep
                    praying to the Holy Spirit to enlightens us.
                    These impure roots get in the way
                    of unity, love, and walking as God
                    is calling us to do.

                Fighting to not change is falling in a big

           From Tell My People by Fr. Edward J. Carter, S.J.

The Holy Spirit

Jesus: "My beloved friend, tell My people to pray daily to the Holy Spirit. They are to pray for an increase in His gifts. My people must realize that the Holy Spirit comes to transform them. The Spirit desires to transform you more and more according to My image. Those who are docile to His touch become increasingly shaped in My likeness. He performs this marvel within Mary's Immaculate Heart. The more one dwells in My Mother's Heart, the more active are the workings of the Spirit. The Spirit leads Mary to place you within My own Heart. In both Our Hearts, then, your transformation continues. The more you are formed after My own Heart, the more I lead you to the bosom of My Father. Tell My people all this. Tell them to pray daily for a greater appreciation of these wondrous gifts. I am Lord and Master. All who come to My Heart will be on fire to receive the gifts of the Spirit in ever greater measure! I love and bless My people!"

Reflection: The Holy Spirit is given to us to fashion us ever more according to the likeness of Jesus. And the more we are like Jesus, the more Jesus leads us to the Father. Do we, each day, pray to the Holy Spirit to be more open to His transforming influence? Do we strive each day to grow in union with Mary? The greater our union with our Mother, the spouse of the Holy Spirit, the greater is the transforming action of the Holy Spirit within us. 

Prayer: Come, Holy Spirit, fill us with your gifts of wisdom, understanding, knowledge, counsel, fortitude, piety, and fear of the Lord. As we dwell in the Heart of Mary, Your spouse, fashion us more and more according to the Heart of Jesus.   end of excerpt


                R. We are in process –

                We are like a thirsty tree planted by the
                    waters of sanctifying grace – ready to
                    be filled by His life in us.

                From the altar – the priest celebrates the
                    Mass, the sacrifice of Calvary
                    sacramentally made present and
                    these streams of grace abundantly flow.

                Our roots are rooted in Him.

                We dwell in the Trinity preparing ourselves
                    for eternal life.

                We eat His Body and drink His Blood at
                    Mass – We are transformed in Him.

                His Word fills our heart and soul
                    and the roots that need healing
                    are changed by this gift, but we
                    must be willing, open, surrendering.

                    Dwelling in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary
                are our little heaven on earth, Fr. Carter
                would say.

                    We are a gift to be given and others
                are a gift of God's creation, even in
                our imperfections, we are gifts that
                God wants to be given to one another
                as we grow in His image and likeness.

                    We are wounded, we need healing, we need
                God. We need each other, we need to love
                and we are to give love – It's the greatest

                    We need to change and to learn –
                every day, more and more, like Jesus –
                a work in progress.

                    We need the gifts of the Holy Spirit. We need
                His Counsel, we need knowledge of
                our wicked ways, of our selfishness,
                our frozenness. We are a work in
                progress. We learn every day. We don't
                say in denial and anger (why me) –
                How can I get around what I need to face,
                or holding onto the old brain because we
                are comfortable in bad roots that need
                changing – We beg for grace from the Holy Spirit.
                We pray for His gifts – peaceful acceptance
                of those things we must change and
                growing more and more to be the best we
                can be, as God wants us to be!!

                Loyal, Loving, Honest –
                God is running the show –
                We give our will and our life to Him.

                It's a lot to process –
                We are a work in progress, but never
                again will any one live as we will –
                We are God's unique creation, so precious
                to our beloved God. We are to be all
                He intends us to be – This takes surrender
                to Him. This takes getting off the top of
                the ladder and putting God on the throne
                and getting off ourselves!!

                We are a work in progress.

                A soldier in the army of God with our
                    hearts full of Him, full of love –

                We are to be like the wise virgins preparing
                    ourselves for the coming of the

                Sing: Awaken My Heart

Ephesians 4: 25-32

So from now on, there must be no more lies. Speak the truth to one another, since we are all parts of one another. Even if you are angry, do not sin: never let the sun set on your anger or else you will give the devil a foothold. Anyone who was a thief must stop stealing; instead he should exert himself at some honest job with his own hands so that he may have something to share with those in need. No foul word should ever cross your lips; let your words be for the improvement of others, as occasion offers, and do good to your listeners; do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God who has marked you with his seal, ready for the day when we shall be set free. Any bitterness or bad temper or anger or shouting or abuse must be far removed from you-as must every kind of malice. Be generous to one another, sympathetic, forgiving each other as readily as God forgave you in Christ.


Ephesians 5: 1-2

As God's dear children, then, take him as your pattern, and follow Christ by loving as he loved you, giving himself up for us as an offering and a sweet-smelling sacrifice to God.


Ephesians 5: 8-21

You were darkness once, but now you are light in the Lord; behave as children of light, for the effects of the light are seen in complete goodness and uprightness and truth. Try to discover what the Lord wants of you, take no part in the futile works of darkness but, on the contrary, show them up for what they are. The things which are done in secret are shameful even to speak of; but anything shown up by the light will be illuminated and anything illuminated is itself a light. That is why it is said:

    Wake up, sleeper,
    rise from the dead,
    and Christ will shine on you.

    So be very careful about the sort of lives you lead, like intelligent and not like senseless people. Make the best of the present time, for it is a wicked age. This is why you must not be thoughtless but must recognise what is the will of the Lord. Do not get drunk with wine; this is simply dissipation; be filled with the Spirit. Sing psalms and hymns and inspired songs among yourselves, singing and chanting to the Lord in your hearts, always and everywhere giving thanks to God who is our Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Be subject to one another out of reverence for Christ.


                Song: From St. Louis Jesuits - Awake Oh Sleeper


Colossians 1: 15-26

He is the image of the unseen God,
the first–born of all creation,
for in him were created all things
in heaven and on earth:
everything visible
    and everything invisible,
thrones, ruling forces,
    sovereignties, powers—
all things were created through him
    and for him.
He exists before all things
and in him all things hold together,
and he is the Head of the Body,
that is, the Church.

He is the Beginning,
the first–born from the dead,
so that he should be supreme in every way;
because God wanted all fullness
    to be found in him
and through him
    to reconcile all things to him,
everything in heaven
    and everything on earth,
by making peace through his death
    on the cross.

You were once estranged and of hostile intent through your evil behaviour; now he has reconciled you, by his death and in that mortal body, to bring you before himself holy, faultless and irreproachable—as long as you persevere and stand firm on the solid base of the faith, never letting yourselves drift away from the hope promised by the gospel, which you have heard, which has been preached to every creature under heaven, and of which I, Paul, have become the servant.

It makes me happy to be suffering for you now, and in my own body to make up all the hardships that still have to be undergone by Christ for the sake of his body, the Church, of which I was made a servant with the responsibility towards you that God gave to me, that of completing God's message, the message which was a mystery hidden for generations and centuries and has now been revealed to his holy people.


June 6, 2015 - Eve of Precious Body and Blood of Jesus

Month of the Sacred Heart

R. See high, see low –

See as you desire –

Our eyes are a wonderful gift given
    to us from God –

We can open our eyes or close our
    eyes –

We can look straight ahead –
    look high or
    look low –

We can see with our eyes –

We can scan the scene from
    right to left –

We can focus on trying to see the
    big picture with our eyes –

We can drive a car and see with
    other cars moving how to
    go in union with them.

We can watch a play at the theater
but if it is boring we can close our
    eyes and go to sleep.

We can watch the Mass and see
    the priest –

What we see can make us cry –
What we see can help lead us to action –

What we see can help take us from danger
What we see can lead us to a new endeavor –

We can see a new born baby –

We can see a person laid out in a coffin –

We can read and learn with our eyes –

Were not our eyes a gift given to us
    by God –

Last night Mary appeared to me in the
    Virgin Mary building on the 5th –

She appeared in the deepest –
brightest light I cannot describe or
    compare to any light I know –
    it was beyond and

It’s depth and intensity of light –
    I cannot describe

She was beautiful and seeing her
    face before me, in the mystical
    was –

    alive and different – it did not
    remain the same –

She had given me messages –
    prior to this intense apparition
    of celestial beauty – I cannot
    begin to describe

The messages will be transcribed and
    published –

But then she appeared and she did
    not speak at all –

It was the vision –

The vision of intensity – I was so
    wrapped in it and could not
    say to lead the Hail Marys –

My physical abilities were
    numbed as I was enveloped
    in her vision before me –
    the light beyond description –
    the depth so deep and so very
        real –

the lady as she was encased in
    this celestial aura was
    deep in that heavenly vision
    a Mother alive in celestial
    light –

in the front of the depth while
    the light was never exhausted –
    behind and around her

A light it seemed deeper than the
    ocean and farther than any
    sea –

    solid and bright with a light
        unknown to me

And her beauty in celestial surroundings,
    her beauty mystical – beyond anything
    I have ever seen –

No breath or depth – no high or low,
    no light can be a measure for
    the opening to this window of
    celestial beauty –

Forever – Forever – God tells us of
    heaven –

A foreverness was this vision like
    the scripture

1 Corinthians 2:9

“What no eye has seen and no ear has heard, what the mind of man cannot visualise; all that God has prepared for those who love him;”

R. Did you ever see the sun dance on
    the ocean, or a sun dressed
    body of water –

There is movement – like nothing
    else you know –

When she appeared this vision is
    not static or like what we
    see with regard its movement –

    I see no movement
    It is –
    Ever changing, beauteous and without
        a beginning or an end to what
        I am seeing –

It is, I see no change, but it
    is alive in beauty and
    different entirely that I am
    drawn into it and almost unable
    to talk, to use my physical
    things –

I am in the intensity of this apparition –
    in it and it is and it has
    depth and light and beauty and is
    alive –

    I can’t describe it at all –

If I can see the sun dancing on a
    body of endless water, can I
    tell you of it so you can enjoy
    the experience and try to describe
    the movement, the light, the
    depth – the sky that meets
    way out in beautiful blue
    against the silver waters dancing
    in radiant light –

You may identify with what you
    have seen of this and enjoy it
    with me, but

The vision of Mary –
the living appearance of her –
    the light –

    the Virgin Mother as she showed
        herself in a celestial way
        to me –

I cannot even find anything to
    identify this with and
Yet it was so real –
    so beautiful –
    so that it captivated me deeply
    to be enthralled in it –
    I cannot describe

But I know more of eternity –
    that with depth and breath
    we do not know or
    comprehend –

We are blind to the celestial reward,
    relationship with God in intense
    purity and unity – eternally –

We are on earth and we measure with
    our spoons and ounces, we see
    with eyes veiled

And God is beyond and other and
    yet He has given us Jesus Christ in
    the Eucharist to come to us
    and feed the sharing in His life
    we have from baptism –

If He spoke now – He would say
    reach – reach and reach –
    go out and spread the Good News –

    Man is so stilted in his ways
    and he can be so bolted to the
    earth, but we were created
    in the image and likeness of God –

    created to reach to the heights –
        to dig deeply into the Mystery –
        to know that the unseen is real –
        to not be stifled because we
            stand in a cement sidewalk
            wrapped in the beauty of our
            own footprint –

The footprints we follow are
        those of the Son of God for we
        were created in His
        image and likeness

The seen and the unseen –

Do we see at all beyond
    our eyes –

    the Mystery of God –

    the Mystery of Jesus –

    the Mystery of the Incarnation

    the Mystery of the sacramental
        life of the Church –

    the Mystery of Jesus truly present
        Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity
        in the Eucharist

Reach – Reach – Reach –

See the unseen –

Dig deep into the Heart of Jesus

Beg for the Holy Spirit to fill us with
    His gifts to see, to
    understand, to know,
    to love, to be holy,
    to fear God and to be
    full of wisdom and council –

This is relationship of us –
    human creatures with
    the Divine God –

This is about the gift of baptism –

The sharing in Divine Life –

This is about being nurtured
    with the Bread of Life
    the Eucharist and His Word –

This is about the unseen and
    the seen –

This is about preparing ourselves
    for the goal of eternal
    happiness –

Seeing God face to face –

Being wrapped in the beatific vision –

My people this is about Mary
    appearing in the Virgin Mary building
    and showing me last night –
    her beauty that I cannot
    even describe and
    when she appeared that
        way – she said nothing –
        she just took me into
        this beauty and I behold her
            and what she showed
            me and
            in the end

R. How can I

We are earthly and

He is heavenly and
    yet He wants to reveal
    secrets of Himself to
    us and have an intimate
    relationship with us –

Mary wants a personal relationship
    with us –
    She is our spiritual Mother –

Open your eyes and your hearts to
    God and to our Mother at Our Side



August 22, 2000

Today is the Queenship of Mary

R. The Queen mounts her throne among shouts of joy The angels surround this heavenly throne Her children love her and worship their God.

The Sacred Heart of Jesus reigns in the hearts of her children.

He is the King of their hearts.

She is the Queen of their hearts.

A New Adam, a New Eve are recognized by the once enslaved children of Adam and Eve.

A trumpet blare for one so fair, a blare of music for our starved ears.

From the Magnificat, Mary speaks with the lilt of the voice of one so pure and holy. (NOTE: Read this with the lightness of the voice of the Virgin filled with the Holy Spirit and in the humility of one so fair.

Among shouts of joy our Lady speaks liltingly in a heavenly voice and we gape at the sound of her sweet voice and behold the beauty of this maiden so sweet and fair.

God the Father speaks:

Amen, amen I say to you My beloved Apostles of the Sacred Heart. You may worry and struggle now, but a King looks on you with the greatest love as you surrender more and more everyday to do My will that this day will come to your earth, the day of the Reign of the Sacred Heart.

Do not get caught up in the mysteries of the way men act and perceive things, but put your gaze ever more on the mystery of My Divine Son and how much He truly loves you.

You are caught in the wonder of the earth and the firmament. My beloved, so much more glorious is the insight into My Divine Mysteries.

My plan is given here to bring about the Reign of My Son’s Sacred Heart and the triumph of your Mother’s Immaculate Heart.

I am a God of justice and of right.

I am your heavenly Father.

I am the Carpenter, the One with the plan.

You are but children of Mine, creatures of the earth, and yet My love for you is so great. I gave you My only begotten Son as One offered for your sins and, men, you smite Me, your Father.

You ignore your Mother when I give you such gifts in your churches of her presence forever with you and the Holy Spirit working with her bringing forth your holiness.

I painted with My hand your Mother pleading to her young ones, and she appears everyday, and you ignore this sign and gift I give you.

What more could convince you? You want another sign and another while you sheepishly continue your sinful ways.

My children, My children, help Me to reach your brothers, oh please, they have plugged up their ears and covered their eyes.

How is it your Creator cries to the creatures and they ignore Him?

Now the beauty of one so fair July 5, 2000, I painted as a golden wonder before you and allowed such photography that all might know Our heavenly presence when Mary speaks in the Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. And My Son delivers, in these rosaries, the message I give to you as your heavenly Father.

Oh children of the earth, be attentive and listen to Me, I plead as your heavenly Father that your wills be aligned to My will and you serve Me.

Oh children of Eve, your Mother Mary cries to Me, for she pleads your case, and I have given in to her requests that the children be spared if they turn from their ways and love their God.

She wanted to come to you as the Woman adorned in sunlight by day and fashioned in a special way by nightfall in golden mystical light in the dark night, as her favored children sing so fervently songs of praise and love to God, and they sing to her, a Mother who has never forgot them.

Oh children, listen to Me and help Me reach your willful brothers through your fervent prayers. My Son gave Himself as a Sacrifice for your sins, meriting the graces available to you the sinful children of Eve, and you will not even pray after I have granted this special gift of Mary on the building.

Your eyes do not see her, or you would have changed your ways by now.

What sign would you respond to, My silly earth?

I give you My Son with you in the Eucharist, and you do not treasure this gift as you should.

God remains with you today. Jesus, My Son, feeds you with His Body and Blood. He is truly present in His Divinity and Humanity. You need to pray as He has instructed, especially before the tabernacle.


I am the Father, I have spoken, I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End.

Jesus speaks:

I am the Son of God, on this glorious feast sing songs of great praise to your God and love Him.

Unite to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit and pray to be possessed by God.

Mary is your Mother, she is the one, pure, spotless, human person. She was conceived without sin, you must listen to her, it is the Father’s will. You must be brought forth from her Immaculate Heart, her spiritual womb, as a child of God, a child of the light.

Let the scales drop from your eyes as you sing praise and see, as never before, the glory and wonder of your God.

                R. Mary appeared in Clearwater – The Lady Clothed as the Sun


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.


                R. Read entire Chapter 12

August 9, 2000

R. Oh, there is not one so fair as thee, my beloved Mother Mary.

Of all the maidens that God could have chosen it was you, oh shining Star of Heaven.

Oh Mary, Mother of us all. She doth appear as a wonder so fair indeed,

A permanent sign of God’s love.

A Woman clothed in gold.

One that glistens with the radiance of a golden tone,

Her beauty dancing in the sunlit hours of every day.

In morning splendor, in dancing light at noon day as the sun glistens on her rainbow glow and at night she has appeared on special dates in golden splendor and light.

Would you quote the Scripture for Mary so fair.

“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.”  (Revelation 12: 1-2)

Would you see her as she appeared in little villages in the 20th century, tucked in hills and out of the way places.

If you missed these enormous signs from heaven, of one so fair, she appears there clothed in the golden sun of the day, reflecting her radiant beauty painted by the hand of the Father. She is His chosen maiden so fair.

She appears daily, she is there by day and beneath the black shadows of night, she does not slumber, but calls to her children of light to come through her golden doorway and let the light of Christ shine in their souls.

She appears one so fair, by day and sometimes by night clothed in radiance and golden, her garment hemmed with glistening sunlight. She once appeared to a few and her visits fleeting in remotest places, she remains a Woman Clothed with the Sun, the sun dancing on her garments of rainbow color on a busy, busy corner for all to see, in the state of the sun, sunny Florida. She is a Woman painted by the brush of God.

And do you know the wonder of one who calls the children far and wide, to hear the voice of her Son, Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the Flock.

Mary, the heavenly maiden, to call them home to His Heart.

Oh, of one so fair, do we not boast and praise our God and thank Him for such a wonder.

Oh, to Mary, Queen of Heaven and Earth, we cry, help us to do what you asked for at Fatima and help us in our mission of telling the world of your Son’s desire to spread His Movement so men will be Shepherds of Christ.


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.  end of Mary's Message


From the Priestly Newsletter Book 3 by Fr. Edward J. Carter, S.J.

The Indwelling of the Trinity and the Life of Grace (excerpt)

"Love, we have said, is the foundation of devotion to the Holy Spirit, as it is also the foundation of Christian perfection. But love as a reflection of God, as His own image, is something that encloses within its simplicity a boundless wealth and a variety of forms. Who can fathom the depths of love?

"Human love in all its manifestations is admirably in harmony with the love of charity; it is confident in filial love, trusting in friendship, sweet and fruitful in the love of husband and wife, disinterested and tender in the love of a mother. Our love of God must include all these forms of human love; every fiber of our heart must vibrate when the harmonious and full canticle of love bursts forth from it. But since God is one in essence and triune in Persons, our love for Him takes on a particular aspect accordingly as it is directed to each one of the divine Persons.

"Our love for the Father is tender and confident like that of children; eager to glorify Him as His only-begotten Son taught us to do by word and example. Love for the Father is the intense desire to have His will fulfilled on earth as it is in heaven. Our love for the Son, who willed to become flesh for us, is characterized by the tendency to union with Him and transformation into Him; by imitation of His example, participation in His life, and the sharing of His sufferings and His Cross. The Eucharist, mystery of love, of sorrow, and of union, reveals the characteristics of this love.

"Love for the Holy Spirit also has its special character, which we should study in order completely to understand devotion to Him. We have explained how the Holy Spirit loves us, how He moves us like a divine breath that draws us to the bosom of God, like a sacred fire that transforms us into fire, like a divine artist who forms Jesus in us. Surely, then, our love for the Holy Spirit should be marked by loving docility, by full surrender, and by a constant fidelity that permits us to be moved, directed, and transformed by His sanctifying action.

"Our love for the Father tends to glorify Him; our love for the Son, to transform ourselves into Him; our love for the Holy Spirit, to let ourselves be possessed and moved by Him."4

Life In and With Jesus

  • The spiritual life centers in Christ. Here are words from the Jerusalem Catecheses: "When we were baptized into Christ and clothed ourselves in him, we were transformed into the likeness of the Son of God. Having destined us to be his adopted sons, God gave us a likeness to Christ in his glory, and living as we do in communion with Christ, God’s anointed, we ourselves are rightly called ‘the anointed ones.’ " 5

Romans 6: 3-4

You cannot have forgotten that all of us, when we were baptised into Christ Jesus, were baptised into his death. So by our baptism into his death we were buried with him, so that as Christ was raised from the dead by the Father’s glorious power, we too should begin living a new life.

From the Priestly Newsletter Book 3 by Fr. Edward J. Carter, S.J.

Henri Nouwen tells this story: "I would like to tell you the story of a middle-aged man whose career was suddenly interrupted by the discovery of leukemia, a fatal blood cancer. All his life plans crumbled and all his ways had to change. But slowly he was able to ask himself no longer: ‘Why did this happen to me?’ but instead: ‘What is the promise hidden in this event?’ When his rebellion became a new quest, he felt that he could give strength and hope to other cancer patients and, that by facing his condition directly, he could make his pain a source of healing for others. To this day, this man not only does more for patients than many ministers are able to, but he also refound his life on a level that he had never known before." 6

Cardinal Newman said

                    "... everyone who breathes, high and low,
                    educated and ignorant, young and old, man and woman,
                    has a mission, has a work. We are not sent
                    into this world for nothing; we are not born at
                    random. . . God sees every one of us;
                    He creates every soul, He lodges it in
                    a body, one by one, for a purpose. He needs,
                    He deigns to need, every one of us.
                    He has an end for each of us... we are
                    placed in our different ranks and stations, not to
                    get what we can out of them for ourselves, but to
                    labor in them for Him, as He rejoiced to do His work,
                    we must rejoice in ours also.

Picture of the Sacred Heart of JesusDecember 5, 1993 5:10a.m.
Where Will You Go On the Day of Reckoning?

Jesus: I come, you wait, you are filled.

R. It seems so long since I talked to You, My Lord.

Jesus: Time is so short-here today, gone tomorrow-and your reward awaits you. What glory awaits him who serves the Lord and his life is over? Where will you go on that day of reckoning? How is the state of your soul? Did you spend your life in search of a kingdom, never to find one but an idle pursuit, looking here and there for a kingdom, but never finding what you sought? The kingdom you seek is not of this world. Your life is not its own reward. Your life is being spent for the reward to follow. This life is not the reward in itself. This life is only the batting of an eye, the dropping of a pin, and the life hereafter is at hand. Where are you going, My little one? Did you spend your life in such idle pursuits, only to find that your search was in vain? Your life was empty and now what do you have to show for how you lived? Is all that mattered up like smoke in your face and you say, "Is that all there is?"

And what did you do with your little life here? When I paraded in front of you, you knew there was more to your life but you closed your eyes and told yourself, "Nay, I live for the likes of this world. Crazy are those who speak of a life hereafter." You heard, you were made aware, you had opportunities, you laughed, you sneered, you ran amok and told yourself you were all that mattered. This life was your end. You were going to have it all right here-one, glorious, true life. You were in pursuit of the treasure found in your house, at your job, in your children, in your pocket. You blinded yourself to any other possibility and continued on your willful little way. You were sought after by Him. You were probed, you were pursued, you were shown the light. I loved you your whole life. I followed you and opened My heart to you and you closed yours and spit in My face and you walked away. You walked over your brothers and you hardened your little hearts.

You pursued idle pursuits and you ran around with a worldly-focused gaze. Tunnel vision. You knew you were not in a tunnel. You knew from My pursuit of you that there was much more but you closed yourself off and went full steam ahead down the wrong road. You did not see the birds of the air or the children at play. You saw a world to be gained and a goal to be achieved. You sought an empty treasure in a barren field and when I stopped at each crossing and said, "Oh, that you would come and follow Me," you ignored My prompting and proceeded like a blind dog down the same path toward the barren field. And your heart lacked joy and it became harder and harder as you trod, but at each crossing you say, "Nay, Lord, I will find My reward here and be off."

Oh, you silly fool! To live your life for such emptiness. The only life that is is in Me. You never die. This is but a test. This is a test for you to receive a real reward. I have prodded you and tried to lead you toward Me but you spit in My face and went your willful way. Oh, little ones, eternity is so long. It doesn't end today or tomorrow. It goes on and on and on and never ends. This is a test to see how you will fare in the end. To put all your treasures in this life is to store up nothing. You take not one dime with you. All that remains is the things of the heart, your love of God and your love for your fellow man.

To follow God is to find the real reward, a field brimming with milk and honey. And you will behold the face of God! This and this alone feeds your hungry soul. All else leads the soul to barren lands. Store up a treasure of gold for the life hereafter. When you come to that crossing remove the blinders from your eyes and look at your beloved Jesus, staring right into your heart. Take the hard crust from your chest and let your heart become alive in His love. Do not pursue idle pursuits. Go down the road that leads to Jesus and at the end you will see His face! His road is well marked all through your life. Your sisters and brothers who loved Him looked into your eyes, but you wore blinders and laughed at them.

Oh, silly! A few years? For what? You don't get anything here but heartache, momentary pleasure that leaves you empty, so you numb your hearts with TV or alcohol or food or sex. It lasts only a moment, but you numb the craving in the soul. Oh, poor starved little ones, your soul can only be fed by Me. You are starving yourself to death. Your soul is withering and dying. Your victory is already won by Me Who died a brutal death for love of you! Come to Me. I knock at the door. Will you open or will you run amok down roads that lead to emptiness. On that day of reckoning when I, in all My pursuits of your soul and My saddened heart, finally have to turn you away and say, "I do not know you. I pursued you your whole life. I stood by your side. I walked by you the whole way and you never turned your head. You looked for your glory here and I waited and waited. I sent others to show you the way to the golden reward but you laughed and continued in your willfulness to the barren desert."

Oh, child, I love you. Many have prayed and sacrificed for you but you would not turn your hearts to Me. I am the way, the truth and the life. All other roads lead to destruction of the soul. My ways are not easy, but they are filled with peace, love and joy. My ways are everlasting. Your soul craves this union with Me. You are fighting off that which your soul thirsts after. It doesn't feel good, but you close your eyes and numb your craving. Oh, turn to Me and find rest, My little ones, now before it is too late! I am as close as your breath.

Rosaries from the Hearts
of Jesus and Mary

This rosary was received on Thursday, February the 13th, 1997 at an International Shepherds of Christ Associates Meeting at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center. 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.

The Agony in the Garden

1. Jesus: I have promised to be with you in a special way, My beloved ones. I am Jesus. I am with you this day, this special time to deliver to you messages that will help to bring about the completion of the Fatima messages. Mary appeared at Fatima from May the 13th until October the 13th of 1917. I am Jesus. Beginning October the 13th of 1996, the Fatima message will unfold through these messages that I deliver to you on the 13th. I am Jesus. These are My messages that I am giving to you, My apostles, that I have called here, to help bring about the completion of the Fatima message. My Heart will reign, My Sacred Heart will reign in the hearts of men and from the tabernacle. Many people will love, love God with the deepest burning love. You, My beloved ones, I have called you to come this day to be My apostles to go into the world, to carry out My burning love to the souls that are suffering and in pain. Will you answer this call? You are here because I have called you. You are the apostles. You are the messengers. I am giving to you the messages to help bring about the reign of My Sacred Heart. I am Jesus. I have spoken. My Father has spoken from this church. He has delivered to you two messages that you must read in the Apostles Manual. The Apostles Manual is given to you to study that you will know what I am asking. I am asking you to go out and to carry My love letters to this world. It is through these love letters that many will know My burning love. Men will love God in a way that they have not loved God before, with a deep, burning love. It is through these letters they will know the most intimate secrets of My Heart. I love you with such love, My beloved ones. Open your heart now and listen to the messages that I deliver to you, My apostles.

2. R. Jesus has asked that I read the following message from the third Blue Book on June the 12th, 1994 entitled “The Carpenter”. “You are he who goes to a carpenter to learn to make a cabinet. You know nothing. You do not have any idea of what you are to do. The carpenter knows exactly. He has a procedure whereby his plan will be accomplished. Every detail must be observed. He is the Master. You do not have the talent. You need talent to do woodwork. If you were given the talent and the directions, you could accomplish this task with such beauty. I am the carpenter. You are he who needs to be taught. You lack the talent. You need the gifts of the Spirit to accomplish My task! You come to Me in total ignorance. You are open, the Spirit fills you with the gifts. You have everything you need to do My work. The Father created you to accomplish His tasks. You are perfect. You must come open. You must know the plan. The plan is His will for you. If you do not follow the plan, the cabinet will not be built correctly. I am the Master. I guide you. I love you. I give you all you need. I walk you through every move. If you try on your own, you have a problem. You know not the way to build cabinets. You know not the way to Me on your own. You must come to Me to be taught. To go it alone is to your own detriment. Oh, little one, it is so simple. You, and your will, want to work your own plans. You know not how to do it. Only I can teach you what you need to know. Oh, please come to Me. I have all you need. The Spirit fills you with the gifts to know, love and serve God. To go it alone is like trying to build the cabinet with no knowledge of woodworking. Oh, little ones, I love you. Come to Me. Let Me teach you. The will of the Father is the happiness of your life. I am Jesus Christ, Son of God. I am God. I, God, long to be with you and to teach you. Go not off on your own. Come to Me. I love you so!”1

3. Song: “Oh the rosary, the rosary...”

4. R. And the Father told me on January the 5th of 1995 that the Father’s plan will unfold despite all the willfulness of all those involved. He gave to us two messages in January of 1997, the messages from the Father. Mary appeared everyday for fourteen months and she gave messages and she cried out. People did not listen to the pleadings of their Mother. Jesus has given to us these messages to bring about the reign of His Sacred Heart. Mary appeared on the 5th of every month for two years and four months. And Jesus on the 5th of December appeared instead of Mary, dying on the cross with His mouth moving. And He said that people were not hearing Him. Then He began to deliver very strong messages starting December the 19th. I received these strong messages. Every night He would wake me and give me very strong messages. In January the Father began to speak, on the 5th of the month neither Jesus nor Mary appeared. On the 5th of February, I was sick and could not go to the rosary and receive this message. The messages in the Apostles Manual, these are His messages for you. For in these live rosaries, Jesus is delivering the messages to help bring about the completion of the Fatima message. He speaks in the message and He says that when you listen to the live tapes in a candlelight setting, when you pray the rosary fervently that He will be there and His Mother will be there in a special way and grant to you special graces. And all those present will receive special graces to be drawn ever closer to His Heart and the heart of His Mother. They appeared, both Jesus and Mary, over and over again. Now the Father has spoken. He is calling you the apostles to go out to carry the tapes and the live rosaries to your individual chapters, not in the churches but in private homes, in private settings where you can play these live rosaries where the people there can participate in the rosary and Jesus and Mary will be there with you. They will give you special graces to draw you ever closer to Their Hearts. And you will receive the graces He says that He has given when He was there and delivered the rosaries. This is His calling. These rosaries and messages will spread throughout the world and people will know the special grace when they pray this rosary in candlelight as Mary has requested. You are the apostles. You will carry Their messages to the far ends of the earth. And the world will know the fire of His love. For this is a new era, it is a new way. It will be a new earth in which men will love God with this great intimacy as never before and He is revealing in these messages, the intimate secrets into His Heart. He is longing for our love. Look at Him now in the tabernacle. See Jesus. Know that He is with us. Hear Him crying out to you, “Oh, come to Me and tell Me of your love. I am a Person and I am longing for you to tell Me how much you love Me. I am Jesus.” This will be the era of great love. When we love one another as the Father intended and we love God with our whole heart, our whole soul, and our whole being and there will not be bumping of heads on this earth, but the Sacred Heart of Jesus will reign in all hearts and the Sacred Heart of Jesus will reign from His throne, the tabernacle, in all churches. And the earth will be lighted with the burning fire of His love.

5. R. And so how do we feel now? Are we persecuted? As Father said in his homily, we are suffering. But there will be the new life and there will be this new earth and we will fervently love God with the deepest love. See Jesus in the garden. I know how it has felt many times to hear Jesus call out from the tabernacle, “Come to Me. I long for that soul that loves Me so dearly, for that soul that comes to Me and just outpours their love to Me.” See Jesus in the garden and see the sweat come from His brow on the ground. For His greatest agony was not the agony of knowing that He would suffer, of knowing the wounds, His greatest agony was for the neglect, for the indifference, for the hatred, for what is inside of the hearts of men when He is love and He longs for love and He wants us to love one another. The greatest agony was the agony within His most Sacred Heart filled with divine love.

6. Song: “I come to you with greatest love...”

Jesus: You are My apostles that I am calling to go into this world. And I am giving to you a heart filled with love. As you come to Me, as you come and you adore the Almighty God and you pray before the tabernacle, I outpour to you the greatest grace and you will carry My love into this world. Many will know the burning fire of My love through you.

7. R. Jesus wants intimacy with us. He wants communication with us. He gave a special message that is in the front of the book. The new messages are in the front of the book. Jesus wants this: for ten minutes everyday, He wants you to take a notebook, He said a red notebook for the fire of His love, and to write in that notebook everyday how you feel in your heart about your beloved Jesus. In this ten minutes that you write to Him, you will communicate to Him the desires in your heart, the troubles in your heart, the feelings that you have in your heart to the Almighty God, our Divine Lover. We will become intimate with Him as we write to Him in this love letter. And after the ten minutes of writing to Him, telling Him whatever is in our hearts, if it is love, if it is joy, we are sharing with Him intimately the depth of our heart. And then He has requested that you open the Blue Book messages which are His love letters to you and for ten minutes read love letters from Him. Read each word as if Jesus is speaking to you and hear His words of love as He outpours them to you. And after this for the following ten minutes to spend this time conversing with Jesus, being intimate with Jesus, sharing whatever is in your heart with His Heart. This tool that He has given to us will increase our intimacy with Him. How can we be intimate with Jesus if we do not really share the desires that are deep in our heart with Him? This is His tool. These are His love letters that He writes to you.

8. R. Oh, my beloved Jesus, I love You so much. How many times I have come to this tabernacle and I have sat before the tabernacle and I felt your presence, the King on His throne, the Almighty God. And I have cried and cried and I have heard You call out to me and say, “I long for the soul that comes to Me and tells Me how much they love Me. I long for that soul. I want to hear the words of love from your lips. I want love from you. Bring Me souls. Bring Me souls for I long and I thirst for the precious souls that I love, that I gave My life for, that I suffered for, that I sweat blood for. I am God. I am love. And I long for love from My beloved souls, but how few come to Me and tell Me how they love Me.”

9. R. And so I know this Person, this Person, a Divine Person, Jesus Christ, the Son of God, that came and gave Himself for love of me and gives Himself to me everyday in the Eucharist. He comes and He gives Himself to me. And I write these letters to Him and He becomes more and more alive in my heart, as I read the messages that He has delivered to me. These are His messages to bring about the reign of His Sacred Heart, where there will be such intimacy between God and man as there has never been before in the past. These are His letters given to bring about the completion of the Fatima message as Mary promised. The Sacred Heart of Jesus will reign and the Immaculate Heart of Mary will triumph. Mary appeared at Fatima. She told us her peace plan. Jesus gives to us this day the most intimate secrets into the love in His Heart.

10. R. Mary appeared over and over and over again. She appeared at Fatima. She appeared here in the Cincinnati area and her call was to bring in the children, the children of light, that they would consecrate their hearts to her and that she would then take them to the Heart of her Son. The plan was to bring the children to her heart and then to lead them to these messages that would bring about the reign of His Sacred Heart. For they are Jesus’ love letters, love letters that will help us to love Him with the greatest intimacy. But Satan blocked this plan. Mary called and the people came and Satan was strong for he did not want the reign of the Sacred Heart to come. So he blocked the messages that would lead people deeply into the Heart of Jesus. The Father has assured me and in these messages that His plan will unfold despite all of the tactics of Satan and anyone to try to block these messages. These are great revelations that He has given to us, that we will know Him in a most intimate way as we have never known God before.


The Scourging at the Pillar

1. R. And so we must be protected against the wiles of the evil one for he aims to stop all messages that will take men deeply into the Heart of Christ. Mary called and the children came. And it is in consecrating our heart to Mary that we will be able to go deeply into the Heart of Christ.

2. R. I sat in this chapel and received so many messages. There are so many stories given from the Father, from Jesus, and from Mary, that they have given to us to tell us about the Father’s plan. I remember sitting in this chapel and I looked at the window where Jesus was being whipped at the pillar and I said to Jesus, I said, “Jesus, what were You thinking when You were being beaten?” And He said, “I was thinking of you sitting in the pew and telling Me of your love.” For Jesus suffered such bitter persecution, such bitter wounds, but the love that we give to Him was sweetness during His bitter Passion. He was beaten, His flesh was torn, His Heart was broken, for He knew all the souls that would neglect Him, hate Him, and would be condemned to hell despite all that He did. But He also knew the great love that we give to Him and it was such sweetness to His Heart as He suffered during His Passion.

3. R. And so the plan of the Father unfolds and He said how important this chapel is to His plan. We look at the mysteries of the rosary in the windows from the beginning, from the Annunciation all the way to when Mary is crowned Queen of Heaven and Earth. We walk these mysteries in the lives of Jesus and Mary and their lives live in us as we meditate on the mysteries of the rosary and as we read these meditations that He has given to us. It is in these meditations that His life lives in us in a special way. He is in my heart, and my soul, and my whole being from these revelations. This is what He wants. He wants to be so one with us that He lives in us, that every word of scripture vibrates within us as we hear the words. We know Him and we love Him in each word in scripture, in each word in the Mass. We cry. We fall to our face. We worship, we adore the Almighty God. If we could see at this very moment, if we could see with eyes unveiled, we could not even see because of the immensity of the power of the Almighty God. He is here. God. And He is on His throne in this room and He is longing for us to tell Him of our great love for Him. Oh, Jesus, how dearly I love you. And the great gift that we are here and that God is in this room with us. Who are we that the Almighty God is here in this room with us? Oh, what a gift He has given to us. I want to cherish and love Him with all my heart for He is all my heart craves. God is here.

4. R. There is bitterness and there is sweetness. There is bitterness and there is sweetness. There was a time when I prayed in this chapel for years and then I was told to pray in a different place and there was bitterness. As I sat in the pew, I felt such sorrow within my heart because I had all these special rendezvous with my beautiful Jesus and Mary in this chapel, times that I met Him most intimately and I loved Him. And I did not want to leave and I went and prayed elsewhere. And He gave to me greater intimacies with Him. We are sitting here in the pew this day. We do not know what the future will hold. We only know that the Father’s plan will unfold and that men will love God with greater and greater love. Jesus is here in the tabernacle with us today, the Almighty God. Do we treasure this within our heart? For tomorrow we may not have this great gift in the availability that we have it today. We do not know. Think of the great gifts that God has given to us in the Mass and in the Eucharist and how He is treated. I was sick and I could not go to Mass and I am writing the Mass Book. And in that book I recalled the most intimate times all through the Mass when I was so close to Jesus and He spoke to me and He told me of the great intimacy that He wants with us and that the Mass is the greatest love affair that there is, when He gives Himself to us and we give ourselves to Him. This is what the Mass is. It’s a great love affair with Jesus. And so I could not go to Mass for a week and it was so hard as it was when I could not pray in this chapel for a while. It was hard but He was there in another tabernacle and He outpoured His great gifts. God is in this room at this moment in all His might and divinity. God is present. What a great gift He gives to us. He is outpouring His grace to us at this moment. We are being saturated with His divine life. He is outpouring His love. He wants us to open our heart and to tell Him, “Oh, Jesus, I love You.” He is a Person and He is waiting for an intimate love. He is revealing to us the secrets of His Heart that we will more fervently love Him than any people before in history. He wants us to love Him, to love Him now.

5. R. On March the 13th, I remember this as if it happened yesterday, in 1994, Jesus called out from the tabernacle. This was at St. Phillips and it was so strong. He says, “I died for you, sweet one.” This is from the Blue Book Two, “I allow you to suffer. This is suffering. You are given this to know how I suffered. You I only give such little things. I suffered, sweet one. I suffered, bloodied, bruised and beaten. Blood rolled down My cheeks. My head was pierced with sharp thorns. They spat on Me. They whipped Me. They beat Me on My head, My precious head. They hit Me on My thorns and the pain was so intense–the piercing thorns! I was slapped hard by these senseless ones. Oh, such evil in the hearts of those who beat Me, the Son of God! My whole Body ached from head to toe. I suffered so, My child. You will never know how I suffered for love of you. I am God and I loved all My precious ones to My death – and they ignore Me! Oh, how I suffer from this wounded heart. They will never know what love I have to give them. They will never know how I, God, love them. They are so busy with their worldly lives!” And He was so emotional here, I cryed and my insides felt like I was torn within from what He hollered at me and it was this, “You must tell them how I wait for them. I wait. I want them to come and I will give them such love! Tell them, Rita, tell them! Your discontent is from what emotions I give you and you keep them inside. I want all to know Me and My love. I am crying out to you, little one. Tell them, tell them. Do not waste any time. I am crying out for you to spread this message. I want you to tell all of My love and how I am waiting. Emotion! Emotion! I am crying out to you in your heart! I long for their love. I died for them. How do I make them know if you, to whom I speak, hold back? I want you to get the messages out, child. I loved all My beloved ones to My death.”2

6. Song: “I come to you with greatest love...”

7. Jesus: And so, My soldiers of love, I call you this day to be the soldiers that will go into the dark night and will spread My love to My beloved ones. I give to you the letters of My love. I give to you this special gift, the gift of knowing Me in the most intimate way. You must come to Me everyday. You must spend an hour with Me everyday, if you can, before the tabernacle for it is there that I give you a great sharing in My life. But if you cannot, you must spend an hour alone with Me in your home everyday. In this hour I will tell you of My intimate love for you. Write to Me your letter. Read My letters to you. Spend this hour alone with Me and I will sort out in your mind all of the confusion. I will give you secrets into My Heart. I will call you to the deepest chamber of My Heart and I will give you great love. I am Jesus. You are My lovers that will carry My love to the world today. You must put aside all of the bitterness and hatred in your heart for a heart that is filled with anger cannot unite to My Heart. My way is love. You are My apostles of love. You must be loving in your heart.

8. R. Look at Jesus tied to the pillar. See Him with the sores all over His body and His flesh is torn. Do you see Jesus there. This is how He loved us. He loved even those men that beat Him. My beloved Jesus, I know how it is today and how hard it is to love. I beg You for the grace that my heart may be more and more like Yours for I fall and I want to love like You. It is only through Your grace that I can be better.

9. Jesus: I am giving to you great grace in the Shepherds of Christ Movement to come ever closer to My Heart. I am asking you to spread the chapters to this world. I am asking you to pray the prayers, to consecrate your hearts all through the day, to say the Holy Spirit prayer and the consecration prayers that you will be joined in one mind and one heart for you are My shepherds that will go into the darkness and will help unite all of the people with the fire of My love.

10. Hail Mary...


The Crowning With Thorns

1. R. And the King will reign on His throne. All men will love God with a burning love. This great era will come soon. He is giving to us great grace at this moment that we will know Him more intimately, that we will be able to help carry out what the Father is asking us to do to bring about the reign of the Sacred Heart and the triumph of Mary’s Immaculate Heart.

2. R. So Mary appeared at Fatima and she told us what we must do. We must carry the consecration into this world, to the church, to the family, to the school. It is in giving our hearts to Mary that we become children of light, that the Holy Spirit works within our hearts to make us more and more like Jesus. And that when we go to the heart of Mary in her pure and Immaculate Heart, we can then go into the Heart of Christ and unite to Him.

3. R. There will be this great era in which men will do what the Father wills them to do. There will be great love among men. We will live as the Father intended us to live. It is in the Shepherds of Christ Movement that He is calling us to be one in His Heart. And as we are one in His Heart and as we spread the consecrations, we lead the strayed ones home to His Heart.

4. R. See the Heart of Jesus surrounded by a crown of thorns. See His head pierced with a crown of thorns. He is the King. He is the King of heaven and earth. He does not wear a crown of jewels but He wears a crown of thorns for He longs for love. He gave Himself for love of us. It is up to us to give ourselves to Him in love and to give ourselves to one another in love. His Heart is a heart of love. He wants us to be one with each other and to be one in Him.

5. R. And so how is it that I can say, “I can love you, but not love you. And I can love you, and not love you” when the Heart of Jesus loves all souls. He gave His life for each and every soul. If I am divided in my heart toward any person, I am dividing myself from Jesus, for I will not be able to unite in the deepest union with Him when there is anger and bitterness and hatred in my heart. So we are hurting ourselves when we are hating and feeling angry in our heart towards others. His Heart is pure, His Heart is love. He gave Himself for each and every soul. He loved those that crowned Him with thorns, that tore His flesh. He walked with the wounds wide open on His body and He loved those men. He did not shout at them. He was not arrogant. He walked and He gave Himself for love of each and every soul.

6. Jesus: You are My soldiers of love. I am calling you to be the soldiers that will help bring about this great era.

7. Hail Mary...

8. R. And the soldiers walked across the earth. And you could tell that they were soldiers for Christ for they loved oneanother, they lived in harmony, they saw the problem, and they worked together to figure out the problem according to the Father’s will for His honor and glory. The kingdom of God is at hand. We are the people that He is calling to help bring about this great era in which the King will reign on His throne. But we cannot be divided with each other. We must love and do the Father’s will.

9. Jesus: I give to you these messages, My beloved ones, to bring about the reign of My Heart. They are the directions that I am giving to you. You will be My lights that will shine in the darkness. But you must surrender. You must do as the Father is asking you to do. You must come each day and spend this hour alone with Me.

10. R. Jesus gave to me a message last week and He said that the bombs would fly around us. And He said only those that spent this hour would be the ones that would survive. For Satan is trying to stop us. He knows that we have been called, the apostles, to help bring about this era. We cannot do it on our own. It only is in holiness that we can do this. It is only by God’s might that we can do this. If we do not spend the hour alone with God everyday, we will have a problem. So Jesus gave to us this special tool of writing these letters so that we will be more intimate with Him. In this time we will share the most intimate desires of our heart with Jesus. This is what He wants, intimacy with us.


The Carrying of the Cross

1. R. Let us be there next to Mary as she walks and she sees her Son with a cross on His back. She sees Him covered with blood. He is not clothed in a golden robe. He is clothed in a cloak of dried blood and the cross bears heavy on Hisback. And they poke at Him and they laugh at Him and they scorn Him. Think of how we are and how we worry about what other people think of us. How we worry about how they are looking at us, what we are wearing. Was Jesus thinking about what people were thinking of Him when He walked with a cross on His back?

2. R. His Heart was consumed with the greatest divine love. He was filled with such love for men. His greatest agony was not the poking, not the bleeding, not the torn flesh but His greatest agony was the rejection. Think of how it is in your life. Think of how it is when you feel rejected and you do not feel loved. How painful that is. Think of Jesus carrying the weight of the sins of men on His back, loving them with the most perfect love, and seeing before His eyes all of the men that would hate Him and ignore Him and not even have a thought of Him, that would go to the Holy Eucharist, that would come to the church and not even realize that He is there. Think of the people how many times they walk in front of the tabernacle and they do not even genuflect and recognize the Almighty God, the King of all kings, truly present. God, God is there as He is here.

Song: “In this very room there’s quite enough love for one like me...”

Jesus, Lord Jesus, is in this very room. How are our hearts for our King? Is the King of all kings reigning in our hearts? Or are there places in our hearts where there are debris and bitterness where we love some and we hate others? How are our hearts? Oh, Jesus, King of all kings, give to us the graceto be more like You.

3. R. I love Jesus so much and I want to be so one with Him, but it is so hard. I know that I must pray more and more. And He is showing to me more and more everyday that it is in this hour that I spend alone with Him that this is the true treasure after the Mass and the Holy Eucharist, that this is the treasure. That Satan attacks and he comes as a wolf in sheep’s clothing, if I do not have this intimate time with Him everyday. Just as Jesus said, He said “If we do not spend time alone with Him that the devil will tear us to shreds because of the great mission that God has called us to in the Shepherds of Christ Movement.” The plan of the Father will unfold. And it will unfold around us for this is Jesus’ plan for the renewal of the Church and the world. You have been called, an apostle. I have been called, an apostle, and I must spend this time alone with Him everyday or Satan will cause us to act in ways that are not like God.

4. Hail Mary...

5. “He put another parable before them, ‘The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a man who sowed good seed in his field. While everybody was asleep his enemy came, sowed darnel all among the wheat, and made off. When the new wheat sprouted and ripened, then the darnel appeared as well. The owner’s laborers went to him and said, “Sir, was it not good seed that you sowed in your field? If so, where does the darnel come from?” He said to them, “Some enemy has done this.” And the laborers said, “Do you want us to go and weed it out?” But he said, “No, because when you weed out the darnel you might pull up the wheat with it. Let them both grow till the harvest; and at harvest time I shall say to the reapers: First collect the darnel and tie it in bundles to be burnt, then gather the wheat into my barn.”’” (Matt. 13: 24-30)3

6. R. The Father gave me a very strong message in this chapel and He said that I should read the accounts of Noah. I have not been taught greatly in the Scriptures. I only know what Jesus has taught me and what I have read. I went and read the account of Noah and someone that was typing the rosary said, “Exactly what you said was in Matthew.” Andso I read this from Matthew 24: 37-44. It says: “As it was in Noah’s day, so will it be when the Son of man comes. For in those days before the Flood people were eating, drinking, taking wives, taking husbands, right up to the day Noah went into the ark, and they suspected nothing till the Flood came and swept them all away. This is what it will be like when the Son of man comes. Then of two men in the fields, one is taken, one is left; of two women grinding at the mill, one is taken, one is left. So stay awake, because you do not know the day when your master is coming. You may be quite sure of this, that if the householder had known at what time of the night the burglar would come, he would have stayed awake and would not have allowed anyone to break through the wall of his house. Therefore, you too must stand ready because the Son of man is coming at an hour you do not expect.”4

7. R. And Mary said, “The time is nigh that the children of light walk next to the children of darkness.” And she called and she called and she called and men in their willfulness ignored her call. How do we think that the Father expected us to respond to the calling of our heavenly Mother. We are to obey our earthly mother but look at how we have disobeyed our heavenly Mother at Fatima.

8. R. She appeared over and over and over again and she called to the children of light to come to her heart. And it was there that she would take them to these messages to lead men deeply into the Heart of her Son. But Satan blocked these messages. Mary appears now as she did not appear before. She appears on the building in Florida. On December the 19th, I got a very strong message from Jesus and Mary both of which are in the Apostles Manual. And Mary said, “I appear on a bank in Florida, my children, because you have made money your god.” She said, “I do not appear as I once did.” And then she told me to spread the tape, Mary’s Message, which I was told to make on December the 12th. Mary appears on a building in Florida. She wants to lead men to these messages given by her Son that will help bring about the reign of His Sacred Heart.

9. R. The time is nigh.

10. R. The more that we spread the consecration, the more souls will be turned to children of light. Mary has told us at Fatima what we must do. Jesus is giving to us these messages to help bring about the completion of the Fatima message in which His Heart will reign and her heart will triumph.


Jesus Dies on the Cross

1. In John 16: 23-28, it says, “When that day comes, you will not ask me any questions. In all truth I tell you, anything you ask from the Father he will grant in my name. Until now you have not asked anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and so your joy will be complete. I have been telling you these things in veiled language. The hour is coming when I shall no longer speak to you in veiled language but tell you about the Father in plain words. When that day comes you will ask in my name; and I do not say that I shall pray to the Father for you, because the Father himself loves you for loving me, and believing that I came from God. I came from the Father and have come into the world and now I am leaving the world to go to the Father.”5

2. R. Jesus has told me that He is giving His teachings to us in plain talk. He has given twenty books of messages since the end of 1993. As we read these messages we know Him more and more and He lives within our heart. Every word in the Scriptures penetrates our heart as a two-edged sword. The more that I read these messages, the more that every word comes alive to me in the Scriptures and in the Mass. He is unveiling the Scriptures in these messages and He is writing the messages of His love on our hearts in plain talk.

3. R. Jesus appeared on December the 5th hanging on the cross for twenty minutes and His mouth moved and moved and moved and moved. And He looked as a man hanging on the cross dying and it was horrifying, after seeing Mary appear every single month for over two years and then seeing Jesus instead of Mary when I went there. This is from the Mass Book: “God wants union with us. He wants fire. Many try to love God with a cold heart. They tell Him words that they think they should say that are loving. When one loves, they do not need to be prompted to say words. From the depth of their being they cry out their words of love. It is a cry from within, from the fire within their chest, behind the words. The words are burning in their chest and must be released because of the fire behind them. We are as blind men. We do not see the great gifts that God gives to us. It is as if we stand by the shore of the sea and throw little words at Jesus. We must not be afraid to jump into the water and be completely immersed in His love. He was consumed with such love for us. He gave Himself to His death on the cross. There is a man on a cross and He tells us so many things. He does not have to speak. When we study Him on the cross, He speaks to us with His pierced hands, His head covered with blood, His body withered and beaten. He speaks to us of His undying love. Oh, beloved Savior, I am blind. I am selfish. I do not see the great reservoir of love that you give to Me. I see the man dying on the cross. How do I see Him?”

4. R. I saw Jesus on the cross on December the 5th and He looked as a dying man on the cross. His body was that of a live man. And in all His agony, I saw His mouth move and move and move. For He has spoken over and over and over again of His love and we do not hear. He is asking you today to help to spread His letters of love into this world. It is through these revelations that He has given that He will greatly bring about the reign of His Sacred Heart. For men will intimately love God in a way that they have not loved God before. He has opened Himself up wide and revealed the deepest secrets into His most intimate love. And we have not treated this great gift with the gratitude that we should. He wants us to take these letters and to spread them to the souls that are hurting and in pain, that they will read His words of love and that He will reign as King in their hearts.

5. R. And what is the mighty medicine for the sick world, for the world that is hurting, that longs for love, that has suffered so many abuses? What is the mighty medicine? It is the burning love of Jesus Christ. It must be in the hearts of men. As men give themselves in consecration to the heart ofMary and to the Heart of Jesus, the Sacred Heart of Jesus will reign in their hearts and the Immaculate Heart of Mary will triumph.

6. R. There is a man hanging on the cross and He does not have to speak. If we study Him, we will see His undying, everlasting love.

7. Jesus: I have delivered to you this day this rosary, My beloved ones. I want your love. I want you to come to My Heart. I want you to give Me your heart, all through the day to tell Me, “Oh, Jesus, how I love you and I give myself to you.” I will be King and Center of your heart when you come to Me and you spend time with Me after you have received Holy Communion, when you come to Me and you spend time before the tabernacle, when you spend intimate moments with Me in your room at home. I want intimacy with you. It takes time to be intimate. I am Jesus. I am the Almighty God. I have all that you need. You must come to Me and I will heal your wounds, I will love you and I will give you My divine love.

8. R. And how do we feel when we go to the tabernacle? How do we feel when we go to the tabernacle or when we spend time alone with Him? He gives us great gifts, gifts of peace and joy in our heart. There is not another way. We must spend this time alone with Him or as He said in the message the bombs are going to fly around us. And if we do not have this intimate time with Him, Satan will tear us to shreds.

9. R. We give our hearts to Mary and she takes us into the deepest chambers of the Heart of her Son.

10. R. There is a man hanging on the cross. He gave Himself for love of us. He did not holler and scream. In His last dying words He gave us His Mother. We must give ourselves to our Mother Mary and give ourselves to Him.

Jesus: I am Jesus, My beloved ones. This is the message that I give to you on the 13th of February to help with the completion of the Fatima message. I am asking you to carry these rosaries and messages to the far corners of the earth for I give to you My love letters to bring about the reign of My Sacred Heart. You are the apostles that will help bring about the reign of the Sacred Heart. You are the messengers. I have called you. I have chosen you. You must do the Father’s will. I am giving to you the directions in these messages that are needed to help bring about the reign of My Sacred Heart. The Shepherds of Christ Movement is major in bringing about the renewal of the church and the world. You have been called to this movement. Satan will try to lead you astray by doing other good works. He will cause division in your hearts. You must know that I, Jesus Christ, am calling you this day. You are a major part of the completion of the Fatima message. You are part of the Father’s plan. You have been called to this chapel and great miracles will happen in your heart this day if you open your heart to Me. I love you. I am waiting for your most intimate love.

February 10, 1997 - Message from God the Father,  

...Nowhere in the human history of man have I revealed and given such gifts as I have given to you in your movement (Shepherds of Christ). The plot is the same as the plot at the Holy Spirit Center and the Falmouth Farm. I am displeased, I am angered to address this issue any further.

 I am the Father. I have spoken. …Satan has created this confusion because of the importance of the 13th (prayer meetings) and the completion of the Fatima Message. Nowhere, have I been so greatly offended, when I have given such gifts which ended in the Falmouth Farm being a (spiritual) disaster ...many souls are being lost.

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. $10

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. $10

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. $10

Guiding Light - Feed My Soul
Inspiring Homilies Covering Cycle C of the Litugical Year
$ 10.00

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. $10
