June 24, 2003 - Solemnity of the Birth of John the Baptist



John 1: 6-7

A man came, sent by God. 
His name was John.
He came as a witness, 
to bear witness to the light, 
so that everyone might believe 
    through him.


Luke 1: 17

With the spirit and power of Elijah, he will go before him to reconcile fathers to their children and the disobedient to the good sense of the upright, preparing for the Lord a people fit for him.’


Isaiah 49: 1-6

Coasts and islands, listen to me, 
pay attention, distant peoples. 
Yahweh called me when I was in the womb, 
before my birth 
    he had pronounced my name. 
He made my mouth like a sharp sword, 
he hid me in the shadow of his hand. 
He made me into a sharpened arrow 
and concealed me in his quiver. 
He said to me, ‘Israel, you are my servant, 
through whom I shall manifest my glory.’ 
But I said, ‘My toil has been futile, 
I have exhausted myself for nothing, 
    to no purpose.’ 
Yet all the while 
    my cause was with Yahweh 
and my reward with my God. 
And now Yahweh has spoken, 
who formed me in the womb 
    to be his servant, 
to bring Jacob back to him 
and to re–unite Israel to him;
—I shall be honoured in Yahweh’s eyes, 
and my God has been my strength.— 
He said, ‘It is not enough for you 
    to be my servant, 
to restore the tribes of Jacob 
    and bring back the survivors of Israel; 
I shall make you a light to the nations 
so that my salvation may reach 
    the remotest parts of earth.


Acts 13: 22-26

he deposed him and raised up David to be king, whom he attested in these words, "I have found David son of Jesse, a man after my own heart, who will perform my entire will." To keep his promise, God has raised up for Israel one of David’s descendants, Jesus, as Saviour, whose coming was heralded by John when he proclaimed a baptism of repentance for the whole people of Israel. Before John ended his course he said, "I am not the one you imagine me to be; there is someone coming after me whose sandal I am not fit to undo." 

    ‘My brothers, sons of Abraham’s race, and all you godfearers, this message of salvation is meant for you.


Luke 1: 57-80  

The birth of John the Baptist and visit of the neighbours

The time came for Elizabeth to have her child, and she gave birth to a son; and when her neighbours and relations heard that the Lord had lavished on her his faithful love, they shared her joy.

The circumcision of John the Baptist

Now it happened that on the eighth day they came to circumcise the child; they were going to call him Zechariah after his father, but his mother spoke up. ‘No,’ she said, ‘he is to be called John.’ They said to her, ‘But no one in your family has that name,’ and made signs to his father to find out what he wanted him called. The father asked for a writing–tablet and wrote, ‘His name is John.’ And they were all astonished. At that instant his power of speech returned and he spoke and praised God. All their neighbours were filled with awe and the whole affair was talked about throughout the hill country of Judaea. All those who heard of it treasured it in their hearts. ‘What will this child turn out to be?’ they wondered. And indeed the hand of the Lord was with him.

The Benedictus

His father Zechariah was filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke this prophecy: 

Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel
for he has visited his people, 
    he has set them free
and he has established for us 
    a saving power 
in the House of his servant David, 
just as he proclaimed, 
by the mouth of his holy prophets 
    from ancient times, 
that he would save us from our enemies 
and from the hands of all those 
    who hate us

and show faithful love to our ancestors
and so keep in mind his holy covenant
This was the oath he swore 
to our father Abraham, 
that he would grant us, free from fear, 
to be delivered 
    from the hands of our enemies, 
to serve him in holiness and uprightness 
in his presence, all our days. 
And you, little child, 
you shall be called 
    Prophet of the Most High, 
for you will go before the Lord 
to prepare a way for him

to give his people knowledge of salvation 
through the forgiveness of their sins, 
because of the faithful love of our God 
in which the rising Sun 
    has come from on high to visit us, 
to give light to those who live 
in darkness and the shadow dark as death

and to guide our feet 
into the way of peace.


Sing: From the Day You were Born


Excerpt from October 18, 1998

I heard about Conyers in March of '93, and went there in April of '93. At that time, in the prayer room in the apparition house April 14-15, my family and I saw a man clothed in a burlap type sack which looked very strange. The man's eyes were focused upward and then he disappeared. There were only about two people besides my family in the apparition house. Later, as we were taking photos, we almost tripped over the man. His burlap garment blended in with the floor, and he was bent over as in a ball, praying on the floor.

I thought later that it could have been St. John the Baptist. This was my first experience at Conyers.

Jesus speaks:     I have called you My chosen one to be
                                with Me to help spread My word
                                to the world.

                            Before you were formed in your mother's
                                womb, I called you for this mission.

                            I want you to help bring about this great
                                era of peace where My Sacred
                                Heart will Reign in the hearts
                                of the people of this earth.

                            Before you were formed in your mother's
                                womb, I knew you.
                            Oh My child, My beloved, how tenderly
                                I love you and take you to My Heart.
                            I am Jesus, the Savior of the world.
                            I love you so much.



June 24, 2003 message continues

Jesus speaks:     Oh My people, oh My beloved ones,
                                you are loved so by your Father,
                                but you go to your world and forget
                                how tenderly, I love you and want
                                to take you to My Most Sacred Heart
                                on Fire for love of you.

                            From this retreat, I want you to meditate more
                                frequently, more deeply on My deep
                                burning love for you. Meditate on
                                My bitter passion and how I gave
                                Myself for you, how I died for you.

                            Oh My beloved I give you this sharing
                                in My Divine Life through baptism
                                I outpour My grace in your soul
                                and you love Me so deeply
                                You love Me to come to you in the
                                    Eucharist and I love that
                                I love to hear the words from your
                                    lips Oh My God, I love You,
                                    I love You, I love You and
                                    I come with a heart so full of
                                    love on fire and I bathe you
                                    in My burning love, I shower
                                    you with My grace and I
                                    give you gifts as you have
                                    never experienced before, in
                                    the things of this earth.

                            Is anything more to you than your
                                relationship with God? I am
                                a Divine Person, no human love
                                can compare to this.

                            I am on fire and burning with love
                                for you, but the road is rocky
                                and you must suffer to do My work
                                as I suffered for you when I
                                was on earth.

                            I shed My Blood, I gave Myself, I died
                                a brutal death that you would
                                know Me so intimately.

                            I want this, I long for this union with
                                you My precious soul.

                            Pray the prayers I have given to My beloved
                                priest son Fr. Carter
                                and I will outpour My grace to take
                                you deeper into My Heart and the
                                heart of My Mother Mary.

Jesus speaks:     Oh beloved, I love you so much.

                                upon you.

                            You are busy for so many things
                                Busy, Busy, Busy not a moment
                                to spare for our love affair.

                            I want you to love Me and spend the
                                time with Me at daily Mass if
                                you can.

                            I want you to come to Me before the
                                tabernacle daily and make a
                                holy hour.

                            I am calling you to be an Apostle
                                of My Sacred Heart. I am
                                calling you to love. I am
                                calling you to the Fires of
                                My Heart where I will consume
                                you with My love and fill
                                your weary soul.

Jesus speaks:     Oh My sweet little flower
                                I outpour My sweet love, but you
                                will have thorns doing My work, but      
                                the love within your heart for Me
                                will be your driving desire to
                                go on and to help the souls
                                to know Me and know My burning

Messenger:        Oh Heart of Jesus
                                I adore You

                                soon your life is ended oh you
                                say "who thought it could have
                                gone by so fast" and yet it does
                                it goes by

                            like the cold of winter that passes, spring,
                                summer, autumn and winter again
                                and the years roll by, one by one and
                                they seem to travel quicker sometimes
                                and some think they will be here
                                forever on this earth
                                And yet they see the seasons go on and
                                on and watch the cycle of life and
                                they put blinders on their eyes
                                they are so blind to the truth
                                many times






June 24, 2003 message continues

Jesus speaks:     You are here, as on a journey, a place to
                                grow in greater holiness, to become
                                more perfected and then one day
                                if you love and serve the Lord and
                                you do God's will you will taste the
                                treasures of a heavenly reward.

                            You are here, you are working out for
                                the big event. So many want to be
                                comfortable on the bus. You are on
                                a journey, this world is not your end.

                            The seeds you plant today will germinate
                                in the hearts you have planted them
                                in, if you pray for grace for them
                                to answer My call and pray and
                                pray for grace for the souls, but
                                you must realize all have a free
                                will and they need to cooperate
                                with the grace I outpour to them
                                but you need to pray for this grace
                                to be released for them.
                            Oh beloved of My Father the glories
                                that awaits you in heaven.
                                Death Resurrection
                                Suffering and New Life

                            You never give up
                            You give yourself to Me
                            I am your Savior
                            I love you so much

Messenger:        And He outpoured His lavishing love
                                on the fallen human race and
                                some rejected the graces He gave
                                to them and some listened and
                                loved and were saved.


Mary's Message
from the Rosary of August 27, 1996

Mary speaks:  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.

              The Resurrection


Alleluia Christ has risen to

give us new life.



Mark 16: 1-11  

The empty tomb. The angel’s message

When the Sabbath was over, Mary of Magdala, Mary the mother of James, and Salome, bought spices with which to go and anoint him. And very early in the morning on the first day of the week they went to the tomb when the sun had risen. 

    They had been saying to one another, ‘Who will roll away the stone for us from the entrance to the tomb?’ But when they looked they saw that the stone—which was very big—had already been rolled back. On entering the tomb they saw a young man in a white robe seated on the right–hand side, and they were struck with amazement. But he said to them, ‘There is no need to be so amazed. You are looking for Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified: he has risen, he is not here. See, here is the place where they laid him. But you must go and tell his disciples and Peter, "He is going ahead of you to Galilee; that is where you will see him, just as he told you." ’ And the women came out and ran away from the tomb because they were frightened out of their wits; and they said nothing to anyone, for they were afraid.

Appearances of the risen Christ

Having risen in the morning on the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary of Magdala from whom he had cast out seven devils. She then went to those who had been his companions, and who were mourning and in tears, and told them. But they did not believe her when they heard her say that he was alive and that she had seen him.



Luke 24: 13-35

The road to Emmaus

Now that very same day, two of them were on their way to a village called Emmaus, seven miles from Jerusalem, and they were talking together about all that had happened. And it happened that as they were talking together and discussing it, Jesus himself came up and walked by their side; but their eyes were prevented from recognising him. He said to them, ‘What are all these things that you are discussing as you walk along?’ They stopped, their faces downcast. 

    Then one of them, called Cleopas, answered him, ‘You must be the only person staying in Jerusalem who does not know the things that have been happening there these last few days.’ He asked, ‘What things?’ They answered, ‘All about Jesus of Nazareth, who showed himself a prophet powerful in action and speech before God and the whole people; and how our chief priests and our leaders handed him over to be sentenced to death, and had him crucified. Our own hope had been that he would be the one to set Israel free. And this is not all: two whole days have now gone by since it all happened; and some women from our group have astounded us: they went to the tomb in the early morning, and when they could not find the body, they came back to tell us they had seen a vision of angels who declared he was alive. Some of our friends went to the tomb and found everything exactly as the women had reported, but of him they saw nothing.’ 

    Then he said to them, ‘You foolish men! So slow to believe all that the prophets have said! Was it not necessary that the Christ should suffer before entering into his glory?’ Then, starting with Moses and going through all the prophets, he explained to them the passages throughout the scriptures that were about himself. 

When they drew near to the village to which they were going, he made as if to go on; but they pressed him to stay with them saying, ‘It is nearly evening, and the day is almost over.’ So he went in to stay with them. Now while he was with them at table, he took the bread and said the blessing; then he broke it and handed it to them. And their eyes were opened and they recognised him; but he had vanished from their sight. Then they said to each other, ‘Did not our hearts burn within us as he talked to us on the road and explained the scriptures to us?’ 

    They set out that instant and returned to Jerusalem. There they found the Eleven assembled together with their companions, who said to them, ‘The Lord has indeed risen and has appeared to Simon.’ Then they told their story of what had happened on the road and how they had recognised him at the breaking of bread.

Definition of Love

The definition of love used by Father Carter is as follows.

Love is the gift of self to promote the true good of those loved. He states the reception of love is the receiving of the gift of the other, so my good will be promoted. 


1 Corinthians 13

Though I command languages both human and angelic—if I speak without love, I am no more than a gong booming or a cymbal clashing. And though I have the power of prophecy, to penetrate all mysteries and knowledge, and though I have all the faith necessary to move mountains—if I am without love, I am nothing. Though I should give away to the poor all that I possess, and even give up my body to be burned—if I am without love, it will do me no good whatever. 

    Love is always patient and kind; love is never jealous; love is not boastful or conceited, it is never rude and never seeks its own advantage, it does not take offence or store up grievances. Love does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but finds its joy in the truth. It is always ready to make allowances, to trust, to hope and to endure whatever comes. 

    Love never comes to an end. But if there are prophecies, they will be done away with; if tongues, they will fall silent; and if knowledge, it will be done away with. For we know only imperfectly, and we prophesy imperfectly; but once perfection comes, all imperfect things will be done away with. When I was a child, I used to talk like a child, and see things as a child does, and think like a child; but now that I have become an adult, I have finished with all childish ways. Now we see only reflections in a mirror, mere riddles, but then we shall be seeing face to face. Now I can know only imperfectly; but then I shall know just as fully as I am myself known. 

    As it is, these remain: faith, hope and love, the three of them; and the greatest of them is love.

We ask them to unite with us in giving thanks and praise to the most Holy Trinity - Our Heavenly Father, Our Lord Jesus, and our Comforter- the Holy Spirit.

We love You! We love You! We love You! Amen.


June 25, 2003 message continues

Messenger:        Is it just for us to take all the things
                                God gives us and then not give
                                anything back to God.
                            We must give love to God and one another.
                            We must live to love and serve our God and
                                obey the commandments.

The Glorious Mysteries



The Resurrection

Jesus speaks: (with great emotion)  COME OUT OF YOUR TOMBS, COME OUT I CALL YOU!!!!  I have imparted to you knowledge of Myself, transforming your heart and soul to be more likened to Mine.

I give you messages after the reception of the Eucharist for it is then I am most one with you. Put aside the thoughts of burgers and what have you in your minds and listen to Me you earthly beings.

Come out of your tombs, come out I call to you who slumber and sleep and do not hear the voice of the Mighty One. Your are like the dead that need to be raised. A trumpet horn blaring would not waken a man who is blind from birth. Only the Lord will unlock the minds of the senseless men, so foolish, but oh how I do indeed love them so.

Come out I tell you, I call you, in your sleepy state with scales in your eyes you do not see. If these scales were removed and a fresh lens graphed on the already existing eye, the men may see then clearly that I speak in these messages to bring about the Reign of My Heart and the triumph of the wailing Woman’s Heart on the earth.

I came, I gave the gifts and the world slept. My little ones, the Apostles slept in the garden when My hour was at hand.

Oh My shanty little town, you are stuck indeed, in your ways. You walk the streets as blind men and I shout to you.

My earth, come out of your tombs, come out and live a life rooted deeply in My Heart.

Messenger: I was in the cage, it was a prison held on all sides by bars, I cried, I screamed, I felt no way to escape and low and behold I turned and where I had thought I was totally enclosed, a whole wall was not even there and I gaily walked into the free night and the sun followed me as I walked.

Jesus speaks: Your earth is enclosed in a wall of their own making. They have put up walls to enclose themselves. They have traveled around in their little boxes and spit at the freedom that I wished to give them.

Freedom is in living according to God’s will. Freedom is in Me.

Talk of chains, for you have some. You have bars and are enclosed in your stone or brick houses. A mighty fortress is your dwelling, you think. A mighty fortress is in the walls of My Heart. I am the Gateway that leads to freedom. I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus, the Holy One of the Virgin Israel. I am the Gateway to heaven. I am God!

Messenger:  As I unite with Him in the most intimate experiences in the Eucharist, I become one in His desires and what He wants, I become more as He is. He is the life, He is the resurrection, He is God.

I become more in Him, His desires are my desires, the Father’s plan is imprinted in my soul during the Mass and the reception of the Eucharist and before the tabernacle. I am transformed immensely in those moments after Communion to being alive in Him.

God the Father:  I am God, you are man, I have given My Son Jesus to you to unite your soul to Me. I am the Father, He is the First Born from the dead. Life will abound in heaven and on earth.

God has visited His people and now He Reigns. He has ransomed them with the Blood of the Lamb.

Excerpt from May 25, 1995

Jesus speaks:  On this Ascension Thursday, I beg you to carry out the message to this world. Live My life in your life, every moment My life living within you.

I am the Way, I am the Truth, I am the Life. I have commissioned you to go out and to carry this message - the message of My immense love for ALL mankind, including My burning love for My priests and religious. Souls will turn their hearts to Me from these letters. This is the mighty medicine to turn a sick, cold world to hearts filled with the love of God.

Prayer, My beloved ones, is the lifting up of your minds and hearts to God. When you intercede to Me through My Mother’s Heart, I will pour out My greatest mercy.

I will not refuse hearts begging for grace for their loved ones. Pray from your whole being. Let My life live in you.

You can pray and ask God to send help. You do not know the power of a heartfelt prayer. I listen to your prayers. The Father and Holy Spirit are listening to your prayers. The more you unite with God, the greater your intercessory prayer. I am Jesus. I am alive this day. I ask you to spread My messages to the world. I am crying out in your heart on this Ascension Thursday. I ascended into heaven and I have left behind you to carry out what I began. I am with you. I am alive this day. I will unite with you and the earth will know the power of the Almighty God. I am Jesus Christ, Chief Shepherd of the flock. Lead My little ones home - home to the burning embers of My Most Sacred Heart, through My Mother’s Heart.

Messenger: I cried so hard, I have never been so immersed in heartache. I heard Him shout, "I Am Alive, I Am Alive." I cried so hard, I could hardly write.

I know Him. He is alive in my being. My soul is filled with His love. I live the life of Jesus and Mary in my life. I love His life, her life - Their presence forever with me. From this great gift, these rosary meditations, His life has become one with mine. I feel His life in the Mass. I hear Mary under the cross. I hear the cries for the souls going to hell for their willfulness and sins. I hear the laments of Jesus in the tabernacle - how He longs and thirsts for souls and is neglected and ignored. I hear Him tell of the sacrileges committed against the Holy Eucharist.

I heard Him this day. I felt His presence and the presence of the Almighty God as He cries out, "I am alive, I am alive, I am alive."

He is alive. We have the Mass. He gives us Himself in the Eucharist. Mary is appearing, we are given this rosary. We are sent as soldiers by Him in the Shepherds of Christ. We are thirsting for union with Him, sent by Him, apostles to go out to this world and spread His love, one with the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus, one with the Trinity. He will light this earth with hearts on fire for love of Him.

Jesus: I come to you with greatest love, I am your loving Savior, I am your God, I died for you, I come to you this day.

The earth shakes and the Son of Man appears. He lives in the hearts of all. I want hearts on FIRE for love of Me. I want vibrancy and love from My beloved ones. Hold not back My love from this world.


The Ascension

Excerpt from September 24, 1998

Messenger:  Sometime between Ascension Thursday, May 21, 1998 and Pentecost, May 31, 1998.

I saw a vision of an open door, the light within it resembled the light of the vision of March 26, 1996 that can be found in the Apostles’ Manual (p. 34-36).

The open door was glistening with this reflective golden color mirror-like light. I cannot describe, as I could not describe concerning the 3 main visions, the first being March 26, 1996.

The closest light I can describe to this is the sun reflecting on the water at Tom’s farm but this too leaves an emptiness to its description.

There was a little white sheep at the bottom of the open, glistening door and the little sheep hobbled over a small threshold and went in.

The door was rounded on the top, no corners, like a semi-circle on the top, and the wall surrounding this door was black. The light I describe was within this door and peered out to me in the vision.

I heard our Lord over and over again cry out during this period, "Come out of your tombs, dead, dead, dead, you are dead."

I heard the words similar to the message of May 21, 1998.

I was walled in on all sides – BARS – a prison of my own making. I turned and there was a wall missing and I gaily walked into the free night and the sun followed me as I walked.

I hear Jesus speak: "I am the gateway that leads to freedom."

I know the sea of glass from the vision of March 26, 1996. I know the open door from the vision.

I know the Power, I know the Intimate Burning Heart of Jesus in the Mass.

Jesus speaks: (Ascension Day May 21, 1998)

Your earth is enclosed in a wall of their own making. They have put up walls to enclose themselves. They have traveled around in their little boxes and spit at the freedom that I wish to give them.

Freedom is in living according to God’s will, Freedom is in Me.

Talk of chains, for you have some. Your have bars and are enclosed in your stone or brick houses. A mighty fortress is your dwelling, you think. A mighty fortress is in the walls of My Heart.

I am the Gateway that leads to Freedom. I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus, the Holy One of the Virgin Israel. I am the Gateway to heaven. I am God.

Come out of your tombs, I am alive, I am treated as a dead object.

Sing a new song, the dead shall be raised.

They conquered the devil with the Blood of the Lamb.

Pray to the Holy Spirit to come mightily on you.

Jesus speaks: I wish to refer you to Revelation Chapter 4.

Revelation 4

Then, in my vision, I saw a door open in heaven and heard the same voice speaking to me, the voice like a trumpet, saying, ‘Come up here: I will show you what is to take place in the future.’ With that, I fell into ecstasy and I saw a throne standing in heaven, and the One who was sitting on the throne, and the One sitting there looked like a diamond and a ruby. There was a rainbow encircling the throne, and this looked like an emerald. Round the throne in a circle were twenty-four thrones, and on them twenty-four elders sitting, dressed in white robes with golden crowns on their heads. Flashes of lightning were coming from the throne, and the sound of peals of thunder, and in front of the throne there were seven flaming lamps burning, the seven Spirits of God. In front of the throne was a sea as transparent as crystal. In the middle of the throne and around it were four living creatures all studded with eyes, in front and behind. The first living creature was like a lion, the second like a bull, the third living creature had a human face, and the fourth living creature was like a flying eagle. Each of the four living creatures had six wings and was studded with eyes all the way round as well as inside; and day and night they never stopped singing:

Holy, Holy, Holy
is the Lord God, the Almighty;

who was, and is and is to come.’

Every time the living creatures glorified and honoured and gave thanks to the One sitting on the throne, who lives for ever and ever, the twenty-four elders prostrated themselves before him to worship the One who lives for ever and ever, and threw down their crowns in front of the throne, saying:

You are worthy, our Lord and God,
to receive glory and honour and power,
for you made the whole universe;
by your will, when it did not exist,
it was created.

Descent of the Holy Spirit

August 17, 1998

I Have Requested You to Pray at 6:30

Mary speaks: My children,

I write to you, the time is nigh for sinful men. They will not listen to me.

To the apostles I give this message: All were gathered at 6:30 p.m. throughout the world, praying for the Holy Spirit and He came to them. United in one mind and one heart my children are gathered all throughout the day at the time of 6:30 and many gathered at the time at 6:30 Florida time. My Spouse the Holy Spirit will enter them in a special way filling them with fire and they will know God. If the children do not hear my voice telling them to pray they will not gather and pray. At 6:30 I ask that you pray the Shepherds of Christ prayers then the rosary, beginning each session begging the Holy Spirit to come in a special way.

I write my child to alert you of things to come. It is through prayer and consecration, united to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, that you will be one body. I ask you to gather at 6:30 p.m. I have requested you to pray at 6:30 Florida time and 6:30 your time.

Excerpt from February 23, 1999

Jesus speaks: I ask My Shepherds of Christ apostles and as many as possible to pray in this way for this novena praying for the special coming of the Holy Spirit.

Think of yourselves as My spouse dwelling in Our pure and holy Hearts united to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.


I ask you to gather at 6:20 every evening.

I ask you to recognize yourself as a body and realize others are praying with you at 6:20 p.m.

I STRESS it is important for as many as possible to pray at 6:20 p.m. If you cannot pray at 6:20 p.m., I ask you to stop if possible and reflect as I will indicate later, but as many as possible are asked to pray. You are a body praying. You must feel this unity praying to your God as the people of My Movement, the Church and the world. You are gathered in one place, the world dwelling in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

Begin the novena February 25, 1999, this will continue until I tell you to stop.

It will be important to notify as many as possible by phone of the beginning of this novena. If you have not been notified you must begin whenever you become aware of this novena.

August 21, 1998 - Early Morning

Pray for This Special Coming of the Holy Spirit on Your Church and Your World

Jesus speaks: It is that they were gathered in one room praying for the coming of the Holy Spirit.

It is that your earth must be gathered at one time and one place praying for the coming of the Holy Spirit and He will descend on you the children of Mary and give you great light. You will know God as never before. But My children He will not come in a special way until you have gathered and prayed for Him to come.

The children of Eve must show to God that they are docile and wishing the hand of God to move in them.

God has all the power, He has all the authority, He has given power and authority to you.

You have misused the power and authority He has given you. Until you are gathered, pleading as the children of Eve for the renewal of the Church and the world, praying the rosary as Mary has requested at Florida, the Holy Spirit will not descend in the great whirlwind upon you.

You must comply to the Lady’s wishes. She is your Mother. She is the Queen of Peace. You must pray as instructed. These are guidelines that will help man show sorrow for their sins and that will help them make reparation to God for the offenses against Him.

I give you My word and the Commandments. The word will be planted deep within your heart and soul. Man will live according to God’s law in the Commandments. It is a covenant that man makes with His God, to love Him with his whole heart, his whole soul and his whole mind. It is in obedience to the Commandment to love God this way and to love your neighbor as yourself.

It is My word I use here to teach you, it is the Commandments that God gives to the children of the earth.

Sinful man will show to God their loyalty and their love. They will make recompense for their sins.

God has dominion over the earth, man is subject to Him.

I am the Alpha and the Omega, I am your God. I come amongst the clouds of glory to the thirsty barren earth below.

I am Jesus, the Son of God.

Messenger:  And the glory of the Lord shown on high and they did not recognize Him for they had their heads buried in the sand.

Jesus speaks: And I give you Myself in the Blessed Sacrament and I am ignored.

Thus says the Lord of hosts, I am coming, I am coming soon.

And as morning steals across a darkened sky, the light of seven suns will shine in the hearts of men; they will throw away their polluted rags and the molten calf and they will rise up in one voice and cry from the depth of their soul.

HOSANNA, HOSANNA, HOSANNA in the highest to Him Who is, Who was and Who will come in the greatest glory to the sinful children of Eve.

I come amidst the clouds and all will see Me and recognize Me, even those who pierced Me.

Hosanna in the Highest, I am God, worthy of all honor, praise and glory.

Do not fear My messenger for those who smite you, for they smite Me when they smite you and I am coming, lo, I am coming, in a cloudburst the earth will shake and God will appear in His glory.

I give you this command to pray for this special coming of the Holy Spirit on your Church and your world.

I ask you to circulate the Holy Spirit Novena.

All must be gathered and praying in one heart and He will descend mightily upon you.

For they cried out to the hills to fall upon them, for they were in such anguishing pain, they wished it soon to be over.

Before that great day of victory, I mounted the cross, I hung on it and I died.

I am your God, I walked the hill of Calvary, I was crucified, I rose victorious on the third day.

Come out of your tombs, I call you. It is in consecration of your hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary that you will see the light and love and worship your God.

Love, Jesus

Sing: A Song from Jesus


The Assumption

March 25, 1999

A Prayer for Intimacy with the Lamb, the Bridegroom of the Soul

Oh Lamb of God, Who take away the sins of the world, come and act on my soul most intimately. I surrender myself, as I ask for the grace to let go, to just be as I exist in You and You act most intimately on my soul. You are the Initiator. I am the soul waiting Your favors as You act in me. I love You. I adore You. I worship You. Come and possess my soul with Your Divine Grace, as I experience You most intimately.

Note: On the Feast of the Annunciation, March 25, 1999, the headlines of the USA Today was "NATO strikes Serb forces; Clinton cites ‘moral’ duty". The headline on the front of the Cincinnati Enquirer was "NATO warplanes, missiles pummel Yugoslav targets".

Mary speaks:  My dear children, today on the Feast of the Annunciation, I wish to quote from my message given March 20, 1999, at 6:45 p.m. (this message can be found on the Internet on March 21, 1999) during the scheduled prayers. I gave an important message to my messenger. I wish you to review and study thoroughly the message given.

I quote from the message March 20, 1999 at 6:45 p.m. (this message can be found on the Internet on March 21, 1999).

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.





I am the Lady of Fatima, your weapons are as follows:

  1. Pray the daily rosary
  2. Consecrate your hearts to my Heart and the Heart of my Son.
  3. Observe the First Saturday Devotion
  4. Make reparation to Our Hearts.



From the message on the Assumption, August 15, 1998:

God the Father: "Please I implore you as your heavenly Father.

"Pray these prayers My Son has given to you to pray. Pray for the renewal of the Church and the world. Pray the rosary and please, please pray for holy priests to serve you acting in God’s name offering a pure sacrifice.

"Once again, I beg you My children to begin prayer chapters and help to circulate the priestly newsletter to the priests.

"Please circulate the newsletters to the bishops that they will turn their hearts to the Heart of their Mother, that they will consecrate their hearts to Jesus and Mary. That they will pray the Prayer for Union with Jesus and the Prayer before the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass to make reparation to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary as Mary requested at Fatima.

"Please pray for your Church and your world and for the priests. Please obey your Mother.

"Please honor her and the Heart of My Son by reciting the Litanies in the Shepherds of Christ Prayer Manual.

"It pleases Me greatly when you are honoring your Mother though recitation of her Litany. Her children have dishonored her and blasphemed her name. In the Litany you honor her as Mother, Pure, Virgin and Queen and in other titles. Honoring your Mother honors Me.

"I give you My Son Jesus. I wish you to honor Him in His Sacred Heart by recitation of His Litany. (found in the Shepherds of Christ Prayer Manual)

"I am God, I love you My children, please obey Me and listen to Me, you have dishonored your Mother, you must obey and honor her, you must offer a pure and holy sacrifice to your God, come in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, the pure and Holy Hearts. I give you the New Adam and the New Eve, your hearts will be transformed in Them. You come to the altar offering a most Holy Sacrifice. I am the Father, I wish to lead you home to the Sacred Heart of My Son Jesus, there you will know the treasures of the kingdom.

"What was hidden from the learned and the clever has been revealed to the merest children. I reveal to you the secrets into the Divine Mysteries in the Holy Hearts of Jesus and Mary through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. This is the gift I give to you My Children on the Feast of the Assumption. I command you to no longer dishonor your Mother.

"But honor her, doing this you will learn the secrets of the Divine Life. I love you, I am your heavenly Father, the Almighty God, Who is, Who was and Who is forever."


The Coronation

Excerpt from March 23, 1999

Messenger:  The rosary is the children’s prayer.

First we begin with the Creed - this is truth! Second, we give Glory to Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We recognize the unchanging God in the Glory Be, when we answer. ‘As it was in the beginning, is now and will be forever, Amen.’ God does not change. He is. He is constant. God is the "I Am".

Then we pray to the Father 5 times before each decade.


We beg the Father, I do, I beg in my heart now every time I pray the Our Father. I want it so much.

Then we pray 50 times, in 5 decades meditating on Their holy lives, "Pray for us sinners". We aren’t saying we are perfect, we recognize that we are sinners. We say it exactly 53 times in the whole rosary. We hail Mary as blessed among women. We say we are sinners. We recognize the truth.

At the end we often say, (not part of the rosary) "HAIL HOLY QUEEN" (we honor her in her Queenship). In the end she will be recognized as Queen of heaven and earth by all her children. Her Immaculate Heart will triumph. She will be the Queen of all hearts, Jesus the King of all hearts. When she is the Queen of all hearts, He will be the King of all hearts. She leads the children to Him.

"Hail Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy, our life, our sweetness and our hope. TO THEE DO WE CRY, POOR BANISHED CHILDREN OF EVE. To thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this vale of tears. Turn then, O most gracious advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us and after this our exile show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus; O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary."

Let us pray:

"O God, Whose only begotten Son, by His life, death, and resurrection, has purchased for us the rewards of eternal life, grant, we beseech Thee, that in meditating upon these mysteries of the most holy rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary, we may imitate what they contain, and obtain what they promise, through the same Christ our Lord, Amen."

TRUTH - the rosary is a prayer of the children of God, filled with love for Jesus and Mary.

No matter how the world is, Mary our model shows us the way.

In the beginning of the rosary, many pray an Our Father for the Pope, the vicar Christ left as the Head of His Church. We also often pray three Hail Mary’s for the greatest virtues, Faith, Hope and Love.

Mary is most perfected of all human persons in possessing these virtues.

We were instructed at Fatima to say the Fatima prayer between decades.

"Oh my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fire of Hell, lead all souls to Heaven, especially those who have most need of Thy mercy."

The Fatima message tells us to give devotion to her Immaculate Heart.

From The Spirituality of Fatima and Medjugorje:

May 13, 1917

"Pray the rosary every day in order to obtain peace for the world, and the end of the war." (p. 13)

June 13, 1917

"He (God) wants to use you to establish in the world the devotion to my Immaculate Heart." (p. 13)

July 13, 1917

"Again the Mother of God told the children to sacrifice themselves for sinners and to say many times, especially when making a sacrifice, this prayer: "O my Jesus, I offer this for love of Thee, for the conversion of poor sinners, and in reparation for all the sins committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary."

During this same July apparition, Mary showed the three children a vision of Hell. She told them:

You have seen Hell, where the souls of poor sinners go. To save them, God wishes to establish, in the world, devotion to my Immaculate Heart. If people do what I tell you, many souls will be saved and there will be peace." (p. 14)

"But in the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph, the Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, Russia will be converted, and a certain period of peace will be granted to the world." (p. 14-15)

Messenger: The five First Saturdays are for reparation.

On August 13, 1917, the Lady did not appear to the children for they had been jailed.

Our Lady appeared August 19, 1917. She told them she was greatly displeased by the action of the civil authorities.

October 13, 1917, there was a great miracle of the sun.

From The Spirituality of Fatima and Medjugorje:

"I am the Lady of the Rosary. I have come to warn the faithful to amend their lives and to ask pardon for their sins. They must not offend Our Lord any more, for He is already too grievously offended by the sins of men. People must say the Rosary. Let them continue saying it every day." (p. 16)

Besides the messages associated with the major Fatima apparitions, there were other revelations given by Our Lady. Before Jacinta died, she told of other messages given her (during her illness) by Mary:

"Tell everybody that God gives graces through the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Tell them to ask grace from her, and that the Heart of Jesus wishes to be venerated together with the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Ask them to plead for peace from the Immaculate Heart of Mary, for the Lord has confided the peace of the world to her." (p. 18)

Messenger: We see the Fatima mission centers around devotion to the Immaculate Heart and the Sacred Heart and I quote:

From The Spirituality of Fatima and Medjugorje, p. 18:

This last message offers us an excellent opportunity to summarize the Fatima message. It tells us "that the Heart of Jesus wishes to be venerated together with the Immaculate Heart of Mary."

At the center of the veneration for which Our Lord calls is the act of consecration to His Sacred Heart and to Mary’s Immaculate Heart.

Messenger:  Mary Immaculate, help us.

From the litany we honor her as Mother, as Virgin, as Queen and all other titles.

We call her, "gate of heaven", "Ark of the Covenant", "health of the sick", (we are spiritually sick).
