SPECIAL ROSARIES TO HELP
BRING ABOUT THE COMPLETION
SEPTEMBER 10, 1996
THE SORROWFUL MYSTERIES
This rosary was received on Tuesday, September 10, 1996 at a Shepherds
of Christ Associates Meeting at Tom Arlinghausí farm in Kentucky. 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
- Jesus: My sweet one, I waited for you day and night. I waited for you to
come. I waited for you and you did not come, and My Heart was in such anguish
for I knew the sorrow within your heart, and I knew that I could comfort you
and I could make you feel full of love in your heart, but you refused to come.
You went to the world. You went to your friends. You went every place, but you
did not come to Me and I waited. I watched you in your struggle. I watched you
go from place to place searching, searching for that that would fill your
starved soul, and you did not find what you wanted, but I waited, and I hoped,
and I gave you the grace, but you continued. I waited for you. I am waiting
for you now. I am waiting for you in this rosary to open your heart, to let Me
come into your heart, and to penetrate your soul. I want to give you My Divine
love. I want to be so close to you. Let go, My sweet, sweet, sweet one, for in
this rosary I will give you great gifts. I will give you My undying love.
- I knelt in the garden in such anguish for My beloved priests, the
priests that I love, and I sweat Blood for I long for their love. They have
gone to the world, and they treat Me as a dead object. Many of My priests have
turned from Me, and their hearts are cold. I am telling you this, My chosen
one, My shepherds. I am telling you this. Do not criticize your priests. You
must not criticize the priests. You must pray for them and help Me to
circulate these messages in this world, for the world is starving and hungry
for My love. My chosen priests will feed the hungry souls. You must pray for
the priests this day.
- It was for them I sweat My Blood. My dear ones, I long for a drop of
heartfelt love from My chosen religious, and many do not come to Me. They do
not tell Me that they love Me. I ask for a drop of love, a drop of love for
the Blood that I sweat in the garden for love of them. I tell you these
things, My dear ones, that you will pray fervently for the religious, My
chosen ones, that you will pray with all your hearts, that you will not
criticize, but that you will pray, and that you will spread this movement to
the ends of the earth. You do not know how I will magnify all of the efforts
that you make and how many souls will be saved because of the efforts that you
put forth. It was for My religious that I sweat Blood, and today I ask for a
drop of love from many of My religious and they do not love Me. Do you hear
this message? Do not criticize the religious. You must spread this movement.
This is My instrument for the renewal of the Church and the world. Do you see
Me in the garden with Blood on My face. Will you help Me to reach the
religious in the world? It is through the hands of the priests that many will
be fed and led home.
- Buckled over in the greatest pain, I sweat Blood for them. Will you
pray. Will you go to the churches and spread this movement, that hearts will
be consecrated to My Heart and the Heart of My Mother, that hearts will be
holy hearts, that hearts will be hearts of love? And I will be pleased to
receive the love of My dear ones.
- Messenger: You come to me, Jesus, and You deliver these messages to me,
and my heart is in such pain and anguish. Deep within my being, in my cells,
in every inch of my body, I feel the message delivered to me, and words, words
are so simple and do not express the message that I know within my soul. It is
such great pain to know what I know and not be able to deliver this message to
this world. I pray that You give to all of us the grace to know the will of
the Father to carry the message, that You deliver here, to the world. We hear
You lamenting, Jesus, and we feel within our hearts sorrow for the state of
the world and the Church, but we come to You as a dependent child and we beg
You to give us the grace to carry out the plan that the Father has for us.
- Deep within my insides, I feel this pain. I cannot express what I know
and what He has told me. It is beyond words to be with Jesus in the garden and
to feel the utter anguish, heartache, pain envelope you, to feel as if you are
sweating blood, to know the anguish especially that He suffered for the
religious. How, how can you know this and not carry this movement into the
world? We are met with resistance on every corner. We are pressed on by the
forces of Satan. It is so difficult, and it is so hard. I ask You, Jesus, to
help us, to give us the grace, to tell us what we need, to help this plan of
the Father to unfold.
- Jesus: It is in fervent prayer, My beloved ones, that the plan of the
Father will unfold. It is a plan that is a mighty plan. From the time of Adam
and Eve until all eternity, it is the plan of the Father. It is through the
might of the Almighty God that it will unfold. I will bring men to their
knees, and they will realize that the power is in God, that it is in fervent
prayer, that it is in prayer before the tabernacle. Prayer by holy hearts
during the Mass, uniting every action with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, it
is in this prayer, this Sacrifice, that the Church will be renewed and that
the world will be turned to holy hearts.
- It begins with your surrender, My dear ones. You must give your hearts
to the Heart of My Mother. It is in her pure Heart that she will place you
within My Heart, and your prayers will be holy prayers, that your prayers will
be one with Me, that grace will be outpoured on this earth. This is a mighty
plan. It will be accomplished through your prayers. Many think today that they
must shuffle papers and be busy about their work. It is only according to the
Fatherís will that this great plan will unfold. You are My apostles. You
must heed the directions given. The most important direction is that you
become one in Me.
- And so you say, "My God, should I pray all day?" And I say to
you, "Every action is a prayer when you unite every action as a sacrifice
to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass that is being said at this moment in all
parts of the world." You must go into the darkness that your light will
shine. I am not asking you to spend all day in church and pray. I am asking
you for daily Mass, daily Communion. I am asking you for time alone with Me
every day, and I am asking you to pray the rosary with all your heart for
these intentions. Go to your Father. Close your door. Beg the Father, in union
with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, in the Holy Spirit, with all the angels
and saints, with consecrated hearts, beg your Father as you have never begged
your Father before for help to spread this movement to the world, for it was
in the garden that I sweat Blood for My beloved religious and many do not give
Me a drop of love this day. It is through your prayers that the cold hearts
will be turned to hearts of love. It is through your prayers and your efforts
to spread the consecration that hearts will be turned from cold hearts to holy
- Song: O Lady of Light, shining so bright, be with us this day, guiding
our way, O Lady, O Lady of Light.
Jesus: March into the darkness with your light that your light may shine
and others may know your heavenly Father and will love the Almighty God.
The Scourging at the Pillar
- Messenger: His divinity was hidden all through the mysteries of the
rosary, all through these mysteries of the rosary, during His Passion. We see
Jesus in the garden, and we see Him tied to the pillar. Jesus, the Almighty
God, at any moment He could have released Himself, and the power of the
Almighty God could have come upon these men that were beating Him. But He hid
from them His divinity, and He withstood all of the torture that they gave to
Him. See Jesus in a bloody sweat and see Him at the pillar with His raw flesh,
with His wounds, the wounds surrounding His precious face and His head. See
the ugly look on the faces of the men that beat Him, the anger within their
hearts, their laughing, jousting Him. It was funny. It was anger. It was all
these things in the hearts of these men, for they were not holy hearts. They
were hearts that were filled with the devil. Jesus, all pure, the Almighty
God, all powerful, and He stood there tied to the pillar and let the men beat
Him raw. O Jesus, we are so blind. We see with such limited vision, and You
are the Almighty God and You are with us this day. We reach with our own wills
to try to accomplish this divine plan. It is only in surrendering our wills to
the Almighty God that this plan will be accomplished.
- The holy Hearts of Jesus and Mary are attentive to the voice of our
supplication. Mary tells us at Fatima exactly what we must do, but she is
ignored and there is World War II. Jesus is telling us today what we must do.
He is asking us to spread this movement to the corners of this earth, and He
is giving to us great graces in order to do this, but the devil presses in on
all sides and tries to stop us. What were the words of Mary at the marriage
feast? The words of Mary were, "Do whatever He tells you." You must
do exactly what He is telling us to do. We must listen to His words and
proceed steadfastly ahead despite all of the pressure by Satan for many souls
are at stake and we will be met with the greatest opposition, but we must do
exactly as He tells us.
- Jesus: Do you see the world, My dear ones. Do you see the little
children? Do you see little children that are filled with anger and nastiness,
little children? What have My little children been taught today? I send a
child into this world with a pure heart, and your world has contaminated the
childrenís hearts. It is for the men that are contaminating the hearts of
children that I was beaten raw at the pillar. I am Jesus. I am truly speaking
to you. I am calling out to you. I am begging you. I am asking you from My
most Sacred Heart to go into this world and to work as you have never worked
before to spread the message of My love for you see the fervor in the hearts
of those that are spreading such filth, but where is the fervor in the hearts
of those that are spreading My love? They walk sheepishly into this world and
are afraid to speak. You, My apostles, I am sending you into the world and
giving you the most abundant grace to proceed without fear. See Me at the
pillar. This is the love that I had for these little children, the little
children that are mean and cruel at such an early age, babies within the wombs
of their mothers that are murdered. Your world is vile. I am alive, and I am
with you. I am filled with love for My beloved souls. Carry the message of My
love to this world. I am Jesus. I appear to you, My beloved ones.
- Song: O Lady of Light, shining so bright, be with us this day, guiding
our way, O Lady, O Lady of Light.
Jesus: I am alive. I am alive. I am alive, and I live in you. I live in
this world in you. You are My chosen ones that will carry the light into the
- Messenger: Do you see Jesus at the pillar, the Blood on the side of His
mouth? Do you see the wounds on His cheek? Do you see His head covered with
Blood? Do you see His Heart aglow? The fire of His love is a mighty fire that
cannot be wiped out. Despite all they did to His Body, Jesus came forth from
the tomb on the third day victorious. The victory is won. We must carry this
message to the world. This is the good news: that He is alive and that souls
will be saved the more we spread this movement to the world.
- Jesus: Do you see the hatred in the eyes of those who spread such filth?
Do you see the fervor in their hearts? Do you see the dynamics of all that
they teach on the television? And you go into the world with feeble little
voices and scarcely want to say My name. I am Jesus. I am all powerful and
almighty. I am the reason that you breathe and the reason that your heart
beats. I make the thunder, and I make the sun to shine and the moon to shine
in the night, and you are afraid in this Godless world to speak My name. But
look at the brazenness of the men that spread the filth. Why are you afraid
when I am God, and I am behind you?
Messenger: I see Jesus at the pillar. I see a Man beaten and wounded,
looking helpless, and tied, but He came forth from the tomb on the third day
Jesus: You will be persecuted. You will be bloodied. You will be beaten by
those who hate My name, but I am with you and you too will be victorious, for
the victory is already won. I am God.
- Hail Mary...
- Messenger: He came into the world a naked Baby, and He when out of the
world naked on the cross. Jesus was tied to the pillar, and they beat His raw
flesh. What do we hide behind that is keeping us from being close to Him? What
are we attached to that is keeping us from being close to Him? He shows us. He
gave His bare flesh. How much are we willing to give for our King, for our
- Jesus: You are to carry My messages of burning love into this world, for
many hearts are cold and dead. I ask for a drop of heartfelt love, and I
receive so little love from those that I gave My life for. I beg you. I beg
you to spread the message of My burning love to the world. Look at the
children. See the little ones. See how their hearts are cold at such an early
age. Do you love your brothers? Will you mother the children?
- Hail Mary...
The Crowning With Thorns
- Messenger: See a kingdom, and God is the King of the kingdom. See
another kingdom, and Lucifer is head of the kingdom. Jesus sends into the
world His workers, His workers to spread love, and Lucifer sends into the
world his workers to spread hate. Jesus wants all of His workers to come home
and to enjoy the rapture of His embrace for all eternity, and Lucifer wants
souls to burn in hell.
Jesus: You, My dear ones, are in a spiritual battle. You do not see the
angels and the devils that surround you. You do not realize the forces that
are working around you. You are My holy ones that I am sending into the world
to bring the souls home to Me.
- Messenger: He is the King of the Kingdom of the Almighty God. He did not
wear a crown of gold, but He wore a crown of thorns.
- He promises to us the glories of His kingdom if we love and serve Him in
this world. His is the King of all kings, the Almighty God, and He wore a
crown of thorns, and from this crown, the Blood poured down the sides of His
most precious head.
- Jesus: The kingdom of God is at hand. You are My cohorts. I am sending
you into the world, into the darkness to spread My light.
- Hail Mary...
- Jesus: I am sending you into the darkness with My messages of love, and
I am asking you to feed the hungry hearts with these messages. Feed the
hungry. Feed the hungry. Feed the hungry, and pray for your priests, My
beloved ones, that the hearts of many will be fed through My beloved priests.
- Messenger: The kingdom of God is at hand, and we are battling the evil
forces that Lucifer has sent into the world to stop us.
- The Almighty God, the King of all kings, crowned with a crown of thorns,
and His garment a gown covered with Blood, not with jewels, but with Blood.
Jesus: Will you follow Me, My beloved ones, for My way is the way, and I
lead you to the resurrection and the life.
- Song: Only this I want, but to know the Lord and to bear His cross, so
too wear the crown He wore.
Jesus: I love you. I love you. I love you. Will you follow Me? Will you
carry My light into the darkness? The kingdom of God is at hand, and you are
My apostles that are marching into the darkness, carrying the flag of My
- Do you know what it is like to suffer? Do you know what it is like to
be wrapped in pain? Do you know what it is like to sweat blood? Do you know
what it is like to be beaten at the pillar? Do you know what it is like to be
crowned with thorns and to have the blood run down your eyes and into your
mouth? Do you know what it is like when you are hit in the head and the blood
comes from your mouth? This is the love that I have for My souls. I ask you to
bring Me the souls of My beloved ones, the souls that I shed My Blood for. I
beg you. I beg you to go into the darkness and to carry the banner of My
light. Go into the world and carry the consecrations to this world, for many
hearts will be holy hearts when they consecrate their hearts to My Heart.
The Carrying of the Cross
- Jesus: There is a heaven, and there is a hell. There is a place that is
called heaven were souls are wrapped in celecial bliss and filled with such
love. There is a hell were souls are damned for all eternity and where souls
will be tormented far worse than any torment that you have ever experienced on
this earth. Many souls this day are falling into the pit of hell. You do not
know for you do not see. This is an urgent message that I am delivering to
you. You do not know how I will magnify all of your efforts and how many souls
will be saved by the work you do, by the sacrifices that you make, by the
prayers that you say, by the people that you touch. I am Jesus. If you turn
away, who will I send?
- And they walked on a straight line. They thought they walked on a
straight line. They followed the world. They followed the world and all of its
whims. They followed the line. They wore all of the things that the world told
them to wear. They ate all of the things the world told them to eat. They
watched and gave their hearts to the world, and one day, one day, they were
snatched from their place, and it was too late.
- Messenger: We watch Jesus with a cross on His back. He is the Way, the
Truth, and the Life. He gives to us immense crosses sometimes, and our backs
feel like they will break as we carry this cross, and He looks into our eyes
and He says, "Carry the cross." And we whine and we cry, and we say,
"Jesus, Jesus, where are You?" And we do not hear anything, and the
cross bears down and is so heavy, and He says, "Look at Me. Look into My
eyes as I carried My cross. See My eyes filled with Blood and My head crowned
with thorns. I know every pain that you suffer in your little heart. I am with
you in every agony and thought that you have, and you search and you wander
and you look for something to fill your heart, and nothing fills your heart.
Why do you not come to Me? I am allowing you to suffer for it is in the
suffering that you will have My life. Accept the suffering I give to you. It
is suffering for the purification of your own soul. In order to have this
union with Me, your hearts must be purified."
- Jesus: As souls are purified in purgatory before heaven, you are
purified here in the sufferings, for I am giving to you abundant grace that
you will join in deep union with Me. In order to have this union, your hearts
must be purified. Accept the suffering that I give to you for it is given to
you with great love.
Messenger: And He carried the cross on His back and He did not complain,
and He fell to the earth and His chin hit the earth, and they poked at Him and
in utter anguish and pain He got up only to fall again and again, but He did
not complain. And on the third day He rose victorious from the dead.
- My God, I feel sometimes in the utter pain that I will die, but I am
still close to You. Help me to always stay close to You, that I will know You
in suffering and in joy.
- Jesus: I am with you in the suffering and in the joy. Accept all that I
send to you and offer it as a sacrifice to your heavenly Father, for it is in
the acceptance that many souls will be led to greater life in Me.
- In all of your sacrifices united to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, you
are helping in the act of redemption. This is a most heroic deed. Do you feel
the cross as it digs into your back? Do you feel the pains pressing on your
head? Are you taunted by Satan and confused in your thoughts? You must accept
the suffering and go to the Heart of My Mother. As a little, dependent embryo,
take shelter in her womb, and let Mary crush the head of Satan for you are
suffering for greater life in Me. You will be purified, and you will know
immense union with Me.
- Do you feel like screaming in utter pain, My dear ones? Sometimes it is
so hard. I know the suffering that you are experiencing. I am with you in the
suffering and in the joy.
- After the suffering, look for the light. Look at the knowledge that you
acquire. Look at how you have grown.
- Messenger: And I cried and cried and felt as if I would not smile, but
I knew in the utter anguish that He allowed me to suffer, and in the morning
the sunlight came out and I saw the glory of the heavens above and I knew Him,
and in that moment, He touched my soul, and one moment uniting to Him in this
divine embrace was worth all the hours of immense suffering. For He gives us
even a drop of His Divine life, a drop of a mystical experience with Him, and
we are filled with such immense joy. O Jesus, how good You are to us in the
suffering and in these great gifts in which we see Your glory.
- Messenger: See Jesus with His hands nailed to the cross. See Jesus as He
hung in such utter anguish for three hours, covered with Blood, withered, and
- He gave Himself as a Sacrifice for love of us that we would be saved.
Today, in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, the Sacrifice of Calvary is
sacramentally made present. Immense grace is released at every Sacrifice of
- It is when hearts are holy hearts, consecrated to the Hearts of Jesus
and Mary, when the priestís heart is consecrated the Hearts of Jesus and
Mary, when the faithfulís hearts are consecrated to the Hearts of Jesus and
Mary, and they are one, that immense grace flows in this Holy Sacrifice of the
- This is the Fatherís plan for the renewal of the Church and the world.
We must go to Him as holy hearts. We must tap into this Holy Sacrifice of the
Mass. We must do all that we can in order to help priests to be holy hearts,
for as each Mass is celebrated around the world by a holy priest, an immense
amount of grace is released when we unite all of our activities to that Mass.
There will be such oneness when all of us in the Shepherds of Christ Movement
are united in all of our activities, as hearts consecrated to the Hearts of
Jesus and Mary, one with each other and united to the Holy Sacrifice of the
- Think of the grace that is released when we are all one in this
Sacrifice all through the day with holy hearts, one with Jesus and Mary, one
with each other, one in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
- Jesus: This is My movement for the renewal of the Church and the world.
I am asking you to fervently spread this movement throughout the world that
hearts will be holy hearts consecrated to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. United
in this oneness in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, grace will be spilled out
on this earth and many hearts will be saved through this grace that is
released as you, My beloved shepherds, are praying and offering sacrifice.
- Messenger: How do we, sinners, offer a holy sacrifice to the Almighty
God? It is in going through the Heart of our Mother, the pure and sinless one,
that we offer the most holy sacrifice to God. Beneath the cross stood His
Mother, the pure and sinless one. Jesus Christ without sin, Mary His Mother
beneath the cross without sin. It is in going to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary
that we will offer a holy sacrifice, for we are sinners. It is in her Heart
that our sacrifice is made more pure.
- As priests give their hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, they will
offer a most holy sacrifice and grace will cover the earth, and the fire of
His love will spread like wildfire all over this land.
Jesus: Please, I beg of you, My shepherds, My apostles, to spread this
movement to the corners of the earth.
- Song: Here I am, Lord. Is it I Lord? I have heard, You calling in the
night. I will go, Lord, if You lead me. I will hold Your people in my heart.
- Messenger: And she stood beneath the cross and she watched her Son as
He died, and she asks us this day to help her, to be her children of light, to
go into the world, and to spread the light in the darkness. For her Heart was
pierced with a sword, and she cries out this day to us to help to lead the
children back to her Son.
Song: "I have called you by name. You are Mine," says the Lord.
"You are precious to Me. Be not afraid, because I love you."
Jesus: I have given to you this rosary from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.
You are My chosen ones, My chosen apostles. I give you this message week after
week. I call out to you, for the world is blind and deaf. I beg you. I beg
you. I beg you from My most Sacred Heart to carry the message of My love to
