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.



August 29, 2002 message continues

Messenger:     My constant prayer is what Jesus asked
                            us to pray for in this message.

                         More and more my life centers around
                            these intentions and saying
                            the Holy Spirit Novena and 
                            the Shepherds of Christ Prayers.

                        Now I want to ask you to be Apostles 
                            of the Eucharistic Heart of 
                            Jesus, we could easily pray
                            like this daily if we spend
                            one hour before the tabernacle,
                            but Jesus asked us to do
                            this at least twice a week.

                        We all should read Jesus' message here.

                        Do you think Jesus is calling you
                            to be an Apostle of the Eucharistic
                            Heart of Jesus?

                        Prayer is such a gift.

                        The quiet moments alone with Jesus -
                            at night in bed or in the
                            morning in bed before we arise - 

                            - the great gift of uniting to Him
                                in the Mass and being
                                united to the Masses being
                                celebrated all over the world
                                all through day
                                in our hearts

                            - the gift of knowing at every
                                second our life is lived
                                united to Him and relying
                                on His Might.

                        John our President is going to
                             Florida, so people all over
                            the world should be able
                            to view Mary's image from
                            the Two Hearts Building in
                            Clearwater, Florida new
                            every ten seconds or so. It should
                            be working on September 5.  

                        Eventually we want to have a
                            broadcast with these pictures
                            with prayer and discerned
                            tapes playing all day.

                        It will hardly cost anything. Someone
                            has paid for the camera and look
                            what we can do with this with Internet.

                        Please pray for this beginning Friday,
                            especially all weekend - pray
                            for John and Jane and anyone
                            who helps.

                        PLEASE PRAY -

                        LOOK AT THE GIFT GOD HAS
                            GIVEN IN HIS MOVEMENT

                        WE DO NOT HAVE ANY OF
                            THIS MONTHS PAYMENT
                            DUE ON THE BUILDING
                            OF THE TWO HEARTS.

                        DO YOU SEE WHAT A GIFT

                            THIS IS

Messenger:    Please funds are so scarce.

                        Please help us.

                        We cannot do what God is asking us
                            to do.

                         It is time to put together the
                            Book III of Newsletters, a very
                            small book with the Newsletters
                            of Fr. Carter 2000 including his
                            20 page Newsletter and two he asked
                            be published and he checked before
                            his death for publication for the year 2001.

                        God the Father asked us to do this and
                            send it to priests and bishops.

                        The Priestly Newsletter is the main
                            focus of the Movement besides
                            the prayer chapters, but we

                            absolutely have no money.

                        I remember last September we were 
                            in the same predicament and
                            I got this message September 6, 2001.


Excerpt from September 6, 2001 

Jesus speaks:        You must pray for your donors.

                        I appeared and my mother appeared

                            for the whole world.

                        The apparition is not appreciated.

                        The fact you cannot even make

                            the rent payment for the

                            building is proof.

                        So much money in the world and the

                            state of Florida.

                        Look at your news on television.

                        Look at what the news is on the

                        MARY HAS APPEARED ON THE
                            BUILDING FOR 5 YEARS AND
                            YOU DO NOT EVEN TAKE 

                        It is not the responsibility of 100
                            people to support such a vision.

                         It is a gift from God.

                         This shows you the focus of men
                            and your news.

                         Your eyes are blind.

                         I ask today September 6, 2001 to

                             see Our images and to help

                             do what We have asked you to do.

                         These messages are important.

                         You have ignored Me.

                         THE PRAYER CARDS, Prayer for Union
                            with Jesus, Prayer Before the Holy
                            Sacrifice of the Mass, Say daily card,
                            morning offering, Shepherds of Christ
                            Prayer manuals, Holy Spirit Novena book,
                            rosary meditations are gifts from God.

Messenger:        Jesus also said "All materials

                             used for the school rosary program

                             printed by B&M have helped the

                             school children."

Jesus speaks:      The Priestly Newsletter is a gift from God.

                         Because of these prayers your world

                             is a better place.

                         If B&M closes and the printing stops -

                             your world will be affected.

                        Again I repeat, these revelations and

                            materials are for the world.

                        Mary appears the Lady clothed in gold

                            for the world.

                        Very, very few are helping to do what I ask.

                        My movement is to help the priests, the
                            Church and the world, it is a gift.

                        Because of My movement, the world is a
                            better place.

                        You will feel the effects if the printing stops.

                        I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus, I speak here.

Messenger:     On September 11, 2001 we suffered
                            the awful tragedy.

                         All summer we didn't have

                            and we couldn't get
                            the usual school rosary
                            program going much until
                            late September after the tragedy.

                        Please help us.
                        We need donations to reach 
                            the priests and bishops.

                        We need donations for the payment
                            on the building September 1, 2002.

Messenger:     We still owe B&M our printer that
                            went out of business about                    

                        If we had money we could stock
                            the store with image rosaries,
                            and image blankets and
                            photos and Blue Books 
                            for Christmas and make more money
                            for the Movement from the sale 
                            of these items. Mary and Jesus want
                            us to sell these from the building
                            for Christmas.

                        We haven't any Blue Books.



                                                        August 13, 2002

Dear Rita,

            I just had to write to you, to tell you that you make me cry every morning. I say my rosary every day and then I read a paragraph a day in your book.

            First of all my daughter-in-law gave me your first volume of "God's Blue Book Teachings to Lift You Up" for Christmas that's when I started to cry. Your words are so true to life at least for me. You see I'm seventy-five years old, so I do have an awful lot in my past, that your book talks about me. And I have four daughters they are good girls, but they should read your books too.

            Today I'm reading your Volume 2 an excellent book I'm on page 24 Jesus Will Handle This One.

            I just had to write to you and say I wish I could meet you in person, you must be very special to write these books, because in my heart, when I read them I feel good and I do tell my daughters about them.

            So far I have 
Volume I   Teachings to Lift You Up
Volume II  The Fire of His Love
Volume III Love God, Love One Another
Rosary Meditations for Little People and Elderly
Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary part 1
Rosary Meditations for Parents and Children
Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary part 2

            and I also have
Shepherds of Christ, Spirituality 2 Newsletters
            by Father Edward Carter, S.J.

            Dear Rita, I hope you don't mind, me writing this letter, because you sure make my day when I read your books if you have any more that you're writing please let me know because I will buy them again thank you for making my life easier because of your wonderful books. God must love you to make you write so great.

            One of your many friends,

            Thank you again.

            God Bless You

            Every day.

Subject:    thank you

God's blessings to you.

Thank you so much for providing these Rosary Meditations for small children. We have been using the small handbook "The Scriptural Rosary" and although it is very good, I like yours better. I believe these meditations will be much more interesting to my kids and better teaching tools than the ones we are currently using. I have four children aged 2, 3, 5 and 9. We pray the Rosary every night before bedtime, and we pray throughout the day, so the other prayers will be helpful to me, as well.

I am a convert to the Faith. I was converted upon my first attendance at Mass on Ash Wednesday, 1991, when I realized that Christ was present in the Holy Eucharist. I was reared in a Baptist household, but I was a non-Christian. ...

It is all very exciting for me, and for my children, as well, as I pass it on to them. We are committed to daily Rosary now. My 9 year old son even gets anxious for bedtime now because he so loves praying the Rosary. Hail Mary! I love you, Jesus!

Thank you so much.

With love in Christ,

Sorrowful MotherMary'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.
