Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus

My dear fellow Associate Members,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Birth of the Full Ministries
of the Shepherds of Christ

    "I wish to share with you part of a message which Jesus gave us on October 13, 1994. The message tells us about the expansion of the Shepherds of Christ movement:

    'My beloved priest-companion, today I come to you with another mission. I am asking you to establish Shepherds of Christ Ministries. At My request you have already begun the priestly newsletter, "Shepherds of Christ", and the prayer chapters, Shepherds of Christ Associates...

    'I am giving you this message on this day, the 77th Anniversary of the Great Apparition at Fatima, because of the close connection between the Shepherds of Christ movement and the Fatima message. The Fatima message is centered in devotion to My Heart and My Mother's Heart, especially in consecration to Our Hearts. Shepherds of Christ Ministries is also centered in devotion to Our Hearts. I will use Shepherds of Christ Ministries as a great instrument in helping to bring about the triumph of the Immaculate Heart and the reign of My Sacred Heart. When this occurs, My Church and the world will be experiencing the great era of peace promised by My Mother at Fatima.

    'Today, then, October 13, 1994, the 77th Anniversary of the Great Apparition at Fatima, marks the birth of Shepherds of Christ Ministries. I pour forth the great love of My Sacred Heart to all. I am Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the flock.'

Here are new entries from God's Blue Book 4




August 28, 1994

After Communion, 7:40 a.m.

Title:  It Doesn't Matter if the World Turns Against Us 

R.  I want to cry to know how this is truly God and people do not know how gifted they are to receive, the one, true God!  I am crying for how thankful I am to receive the one, true God.  If the whole world turns against me, it doesn't matter. No one can take this union with God away!

    To know I really and truly hold God within me is such a gift. Who am I that God comes and dwells in my heart? I am so thankful for Him and His great love. Love is not lip service, love is in my heart. Love is action from the heart. The Holy Spirit imparts to me the fire of His love.

Words are words, the Almighty God puts the fire in these words whereby I experience the love of God. Words are only words without the Spirit moving my heart toward the love of God.

    This is what they did to Him. He was abandoned and blasphemed, called all kinds of names, dishonorably treated, condemned to death, scoffed and He remained in total peace.

Jesus:  When they persecute you and holler every slander against you, hold tight to My love.  I am forever with you, sustaining you.

R.  He showed us the way. He accepted the most outrageous treatment in perfect peace. When the world turns cold, I look to the Master. Watch them tear His flesh like ruthless men. Watch them spit on Him. Watch them beat Him and what, what did He do?  He remained in perfect peace! I do as God prompts me in my heart. I am not perfect. I want to serve Him because I love Him so. It is not what goes into a man that makes him vile, but what comes out of a man.

Jesus:  Keep your hearts pure, My little one.  Never, never do I go from you. I want to constantly live and dwell, in you!  Do as you think the Father wills.  Doubt and confusion are from Satan.  You strive always to serve the Father and then your hearts will be at peace.  I call you to love, Rita. Love, My child.  Satan is the great deceiver.  My ways are peace and joy.

    I am the Good Shepherd, I know mine and they follow Me. I truly love you so very much, My little child. 

R.  (I smelled incense twice).  I love the person inside.  I love a part of you I never see.  I love your spirit.  This is how I love God. I love God and we do not usually see Him. It is a gift when Jesus appears. It is a gift when Mary appears. The Eucharist is a gift.



August 28, 1994

Strive Always To Serve The Father

Jesus speaks: Keep your hearts pure, My little ones. Never, never do I go from you. I want to constantly live and dwell inside you! You should do as you think the Father wills. Doubt, confusion is from Satan. You should strive always to serve the Father and then your hearts are at peace. I call you to love. Love, My children. Satan is the great deceiver. My ways are peace and joy.

I am the Good Shepherd. I know Mine and they follow Me. I truly love you so very much, My little children.



August 29, 1994

After Communion

R.  I cried so hard, realizing how much He loves everyone and they are blind. I love Him so much. I just feel so close to Him. God is truly here and in our midst this very day and everyone runs.  He loves us so much!

    He told me to read the messages in March and I cried because He loves us so much. I am crying so hard, realizing how He truly loves me and how I have taken His love so lightly. How I have doubted!  I cry so hard for this blind world, for He is truly here, I cry for the love He has for them and they do not know!

    My insides hurt to experience this feeling, so deep, like when I felt Mary's pain, and suffering, I just experience it until it goes away, it is real intense. To read my letters makes me cry because He loves us so much and everyone is so blind. I cannot express God's love in words, no words are good enough. Jesus wants us to love Him! This is why He is truly present here in the tabernacle.  We should realize the great love He has for us.  We should realize Mary's presence with us for she is there at every Mass, she is here in the church with Jesus. Mary and Jesus are one, united in Their Hearts.

Title: Letter from Jesus to Fr. Carter

Jesus:  I am calling you, Fr. Carter, to share in these messages from the Blue Book. I have put you two together to see to the distribution of My messages, centered on My ardent on fire love of My Sacred Heart. You are to share this as a joint effort. The contents are to be used as you see fit to promote the love of My Most Sacred Heart. This is not an easy task. You share these messages jointly to promote this devotion.  I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus on fire for My beloved ones.



May 1, 1993

Title: Love For Mary At First Sight

R.  My first love of the Center came through the Sorrowful Mother statue.  I drove up and wanted to see it through the windows. I felt so close to her, as if the statue was alive.  I took pictures of the statue just to have them as I loved it so much.

     All through the letters I received about the aching heart, in front of the tabernacle, I experienced somebody else's pain. It was Jesus and Mary's pain! I kept hearing the song, "The Lady is Calling".  I heard that song as if on a little tape recorder when I first went to see Fr. Smith. I was awaken in the night and it was playing.

I was sent to Conyers in June and heard the song constantly.

She is calling me to the Center. My experiences are around her statue there.

     At Fr. Smith's Mass, in March, I saw the precious blood outside the cup when I received it.  It was July 17, 1993, the first day I went to see Fr. Smith.

    Mary appeared that day in my dining room at home. It is a pail green room.

Jesus: The very hairs of your head are numbered!



August 31, 1994

Donít Be Afraid to Love

Jesus speaks: Donít be afraid to love. I loved until I gave My insides. Give your all in love, this is My way. I supply you with the love inside of you. My love supply is inexhaustible. This is My way, to love unconditionally and to come to God to refurbish your supply. I am consistently on fire for love of you this day. I never go in and out. Your Father still loves you, your Mother loves you, the Holy Spirit loves you! In all your actions, put on Christ. My sweet one, oh how I love you. Come to Me!

Mary speaks: I am Mary, your Mother. Let me hold you tenderly in my arms and caress your little body. I am your most loving Mother. I never leave you, child. I am caressing you now. Come and be joined in Our Hearts, cradled by Our love. Hear the beating of Our Hearts. I am your Mother and thank you for responding to this call.



September 1, 1994

Title: Do I Realize My Intense Worth to Him

R.  There stood Mary, under her Son's cross.  Her face, weeping, horror, distorted. We cannot comprehend! She watched the brutal death of her beloved one, hanging and calling out from the cross!

    In His anguish, He had perfect peace.  See Him there hanging, nails in His hands, badly bruised, bloodied, swollen, His body one tremendous wound, stripped, almost to the point of death. He told Mary that John was her beloved son and He told her that she was his Mother.  He loved us so much He gave us His Mother.

    His thoughts always were for us - He gave us His Mother!  He could have, at the last moment, stopped it all, but he accepted His very own death in ardent love of us. He truly gave the last beat of His heart, the last drop of His blood, so that we may have everlasting salvation.

    Oh, my Jesus, who am I that You love me so much. How lightly do I take this great gift, the gift of His very own life given for me, the blood in His veins, His flesh!  Do I realize my intense worth to Him? Oh, my Jesus, do I realize how you, Jesus Christ, give me your life in the Eucharist this very day!  Jesus, you died for me and you rose to give me new life in you.

    Oh, my Savior, wash me, cleanse me. Spirit, open my eyes to see as you want me to see all the truths I need to see for greater union with you!  I am totally yours, Lord, through the Immaculate Heart of your Mother forever. Place me in the most tenderest place in your Sacred Heart.



September 1, 1994 - After Communion

Promote The Rosary

Mary speaks: My little girl, I am Mary your beloved Mother. As I have told you, you will suffer. My Heart is so sad for all those who do not know the love of my Son. You know some of His intense love for all the beloved souls. I let you share in some of my emotions, to allow you to experience my suffering to know all those who would reject the love of my precious Son. Sweet child of mine, you know how He loves all. I tell you to pray, pray for each other.

Promote the rosary. I am showing you how to make the rosary alive in your life. The rosary is such a powerful prayer against Satan. Satan is running rampant. He will be squelched by praying the rosary. Promote the rosary. I appear to you as the Lady of Light. My rosary will light up the world! I am the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Who will hear if you are not speaking? Constantly be about the work of promoting Our two Hearts and praying the rosary. I show myself to you to comfort you and to lead others to my rosary. I am sorrowful to know the hearts of men. They have turned so cold when Jesus has a burning fire waiting to warm them.



September 1, 1994

They Need These Messages

Jesus speaks: I am Jesus. I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus. My Heart burns for love of My beloved children. It is through My Motherís Heart and My Heart so many will turn their cold hearts and lukewarm hearts to hearts ablaze with the fire of My love.

Promote My Heart through My Motherís Heart. You will continue to experience such emotions. My Mother is so closely united to Me. To know her is to know her suffering for the sinners that will be lost in eternal damnation. She appears to you in such light. You must preach the contents of these letters. Your words will be a light to the dark world. I speak through you. You are delivering My messages to those I love. Your tongue should forever preach of My intense, burning love for all. This world will shine with the love of My Sacred Heart. These words will illuminate their hearts. You hold words given to My loved ones from Me. Do not take this job lightly. You need to get My messages out. Souls will be lost forever because they did not know My burning love. These messages speak of My love as no others. This is the medicine for the sick world. They need these messages.

I am Jesus. I speak here to the world. These are My intense love letters to all. They need to hear these words. They are given from Me to each precious soul. This is an urgent message. Time is so short. You will know soon that the time delayed will hurt many souls.

Many souls will not know of My love, they need these messages! I speak so tenderly to My beloved ones here. Please, I beg you to spread these words to My hurting children.

Mary is appearing as a Lady of Light. These letters will light menís hearts with My intense love for them. The world will shine with My love. Circulate the messages. This is an urgent message.



September 1, 1994

After Communion

Title:  Wanting a Deeper Union with Jesus

R.  I want such deep union with Jesus. I want Him so much more. I saw the Mary statue and I know of their intense love for everyone. It makes me so sad to know this. It makes me sad to see her and see how blind this world is. I know what Jesus and Mary are telling me. After Communion, I am so close to Him. I am so close to the other side. My heart is torn between being here and experiencing this touch of the other side. I know it so clearly after Communion. These experiences are tender moments I treasure that brings tears to know the reality of heaven - I experience such closeness to Him.

    I love Him so much. I love God: the Father, Son and Holy Spirit and I intently love my beautiful mother. I want to be in deeper union with Mary and Jesus. Oh, my God, I deeply long to have a greater union with You forever!

   I love you so intently. I want to be closely united to you, my God.  I love you so much, only in my heart do I know, for words are hollow and do not express a drop of the intense love I have for you in my heart. I want to be so much closer, it hurts to want Him so deeply. Such longing for this great love and thirst in my soul. I long for you, oh Lord. My heart craves union with Him!

    I seek a place of quiet intimacy with Him. I want to be with Him and Him alone, no one around. (Now I am in the Residence chapel by myself and my heart is quieted and full of such love, to be alone here with my beloved Jesus in my heart and in the Blessed Sacrament.)

    After Communion I want to go into a quiet deep place, far off and be alone with Him. I want Him in a little space all by myself. I love Him so much. I am at such joy to be alone here with Him. I know His presence so much in the Blessed Sacrament. All I want to do is be alone with Him.

    (Inner vision:  I see with my eyes closed: Hearts with a door in it, one right after the other, going upward.)

    Are we this door, Jesus, to lead hearts to heaven? Are we the instruments You are using to lead souls to the on-fire, burning love of your most Sacred Heart, through Mary's heart? Clean my heart. Purify my soul. Make me forever holy to be pure and ever closer to You and Your most Sacred Heart. I love You so. The world stands still and Your love is so real to me. I see so clearly before me the life hereafter and the purpose of this earthly existence. You are the Almighty God and You lead us to our home, waiting for us in heaven. Anything that leads us from this, our goal, is detrimental to our journey. You are the Almighty God. I long for union ever closer to You and Mary and the saints and angels. I want to be ever closer to this home in heaven, in union with You.

(I see the ladder and souls ascending this ladder to Your Kingdom, that awaits us and I see a ladder that leads to a red, dark place.)

    I feel such intense need for us to pray constantly, to do the Father's will. At Mass I beg for mercy from God to help all my brothers to get to their heavenly home. I feel the need to offer my life for my suffering brothers in purgatory. This life has meaning to me in loving God and drawing my brothers ever closer to this heavenly reward.

    He said that we should love God as He loved us. He laid down His life for us.

    This is the call of Mary: She calls us to the love of her Son and the love of our brothers!

Oh, my Jesus, I love You so much!
