The Lord gave an urgent message to print
Tell My People on April 10th.

Can you please help us?


                Excerpt from the Daily Writing Rita Ring wrote April 11, 2010

                A person with stored up anger — needs to
                    heal this volatile energy in them —

                People who hide anger and it can be passed
                    down from parents, can carry
                    so much anger and live with it —
                    hurting themselves and others —
                    until their life becomes unmanageable
                    and they have to deal with their
                    addiction like an alcoholic and
                    heal that anger

                Volcanos are things that exist in the
                    world God created —

                Do you get the connection

December 3, 2006 (excerpt)

INTRODUCTION: The prophet, Jeremiah, lived during one of the most devastating times in the history of Israel.  He witnessed the destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple by the Babylonians.  He saw many of his fellow citizens enslaved and taken into exile.  Yet his words reflect hope and not despair.  His hope is based not on human capabilities but on God's faithfulness to God’s promises.  Jeremiah recalls God’s promise to his people made over 400 years earlier, during the time of King David, that God would bring to the throne a successor to the King who would bring peace and security to Jerusalem.  We still wait for peace and security not only in Jerusalem but all over the world, but the promised one, a descendant of the House of David has begun his reign.  The gospel tells us one day he will come in great glory to establish the kingdom of God forever.   

HOMILY: Although our society has begun its preparations for the birth of Christ, even as they are hesitant to mention his birth, the Church begins its preparations today.  Our liturgy, however, wants us to know that we are not only preparing for a special celebration three weeks from now, but our readings put before us the bigger picture.  It’s not just the celebration of Jesus’ birth that we are to prepare for but also we must prepare for the day when he comes again to bring us into his kingdom.  Advent tells us Christ is coming, but it also asks us, are we ready to meet him?  If we’re not, his coming 2000 years ago will have little or no value for us.   

For some people his second coming will be a frightening time.  “People will die in fright in anticipation of what is coming upon the world...”  But if we are prepared, not just for Christmas, but for Christ, the Lord tells us “stand erect and raise your heads because your redemption is at hand.”  His coming will be for those who have followed him faithfully a day of victory and joy.

                    We have sent over 15,000,000 Priestly Newsletters
                to priests and hierarchy loose and in books
                in 16 years —

                    We did this for most of the time
                every other month to all the priests
                in the United States

                    Cardinal Stafford from the Vatican said
                in a letter that Fr. Carter and I and the
                Shepherds of Christ had helped the Church
                enormously since 1993 to present.

                The hierarchy need our prayers as we
                pray as members of the Shepherds of Christ —

                    The prayers are in 8 languages

                    We have circulated Fr. Joe's book to

                    Look at the United States — what is happening
                God has given us this book to help
                the priests weekly in this rebellion
                against God's will in the United States and the world —
                Weekly we are helping parishes all
                over the United States to be rooted in the
                Bread of Life — the scriptures and
                the Eucharist

                    We have focused all these years
                in these 15,000,000 Priestly Newsletters on the
                truth — the scriptures, the wisdom of the saints,
                the writings of our beloved Pope Benedict XVI
                and Pope John Paul II

                Mary is our spiritual Mother and Mother
                of the Church. The spousal relationship
                of the Holy Spirit and Mary is such a gift.
                Words cannot express how awesome
                it is that the Deity has this beautiful
                relationship with humanity in the
                Virgin Mary —





John 3: 16

For this is how God loved the world:
he gave his only Son,
so that everyone who believes in him 
    may not perish
but may have eternal life.


                We must spread the consecration to
                Jesus and Mary.


From Tell My People

The Holy Spirit

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

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


                In recognizing the beautiful relationship
                between the Holy Spirit and Mary and the relationship
                between Jesus and Mary, and we know Mary's
                love as daughter of the Father, we
                recognize how the Deity loves us,
                as human persons, so very much.


                    From Tell My People 

Build Up My Church

Jesus: "My beloved friend, remind My people that the Church was born from My Heart, pierced with the soldier's lance on Calvary. From My pierced Heart the Church with her sacraments was born. Two of these sacraments, the Eucharist and Baptism, were symbolized by the Blood and Water which flowed forth from My pierced side.

"As the Church was born from My pierced Heart, so does the Church's life grow from the graces I continually give her from My pierced Heart—this Heart which is now glorified. "I call all the members of My Church to help build up My Body, the Church, by coming to My pierced Heart. United to My Heart, and dwelling within It, I will give to each one the light and strength to carry out My Father's will in the building up of My Church.

"Mary is Mother and Model of the Church. As 'Mother of the Church,' she intercedes for all the graces the members need to contribute to the building up of My Church. As Model—as perfect imitator of Me—she shows the children of the Church how all, individually and collectively, are to be increasingly formed in My image. As all come to My Heart for the building up of the Church, let them do so united to the Heart of Mary.

"My Church is experiencing critical and very difficult times. There are many divisions. There are many false teachings, including some put forth by certain theologians. These false teachings occur because those responsible are not in proper union with My vicar, the Pope, and the Church Magisterium. I want all My children to pray daily for the cure of the many and serious ills of the Church. With increased prayer and sacrifices for the health of the Church, that day will soon come when the Church will be purified and revitalized. When that day comes, the Church will be a light to all nations as never before. When that day comes, the renewed Church will be characterized by the triumph of the Immaculate Heart and the reign of My Sacred Heart. Thus the message of Fatima will have reached fulfillment.

"I am Lord and Master. I request that all My people listen to My words and respond to them. I love My people with a tremendous love, and in this great love I give them this message!"

Reflection: In speaking of the Church, St. Paul tells us:

"Just as a human body, though it is made up of many parts, is a single unit because all these parts, though many, make one body, so it is with Christ. In the one Spirit we were all baptized, Jews as well as Greeks, slaves as well as citizens, and one Spirit was given to us all to drink....

"Now you together are Christ's body; but each of you is a different part of It. In the Church, God has given the first place to apostles, the second to prophets, the third to teachers; after them, miracles, and after them the gift of healing; helpers, good leaders, those with many languages. Are all of them apostles, or all of them prophets, or all of them teachers? Do they all have the gift of miracles, or all have the gift of healing? Do all speak strange languages, and all interpret them?" (1 Corinthians 12:12-30).

In His message above, Jesus reminds all of us that we have a responsibility to help in the building up of the Church. St. Paul reminds us that we each have our own role. He names many of these roles and there are many who share in them. For example, there are many teachers of various kinds in the Church. But each teaches according to his or her personal uniqueness. Consequently, we can truly say that each one has a mission, has a role, in the life of the Church which no one else can fulfill. To the extent each of us gives his or her life to Christ, we continue His work upon earth through the visible, tangible humanity each of us possess. To the extent each of us fails to surrender to Jesus, to that extent we refuse Him the opportunity to live through our personal uniqueness. What an awesome privilege has been given to each of us! And what an awesome responsibility!

                God is love and He loves us so much


Genesis 1: 27-28

    God created man in the image of himself,
    in the image of God he created him,
    male and female he created them.

     God blessed them, saying to them, ‘Be fruitful, multiply, fill the earth and subdue it. Be masters of the fish of the sea, the birds of heaven and all the living creatures that move on earth.’ 


                R. This is our mission: To spread
                the Good News how God: Father, Son
                and Holy Spirit love us so intimately —

                    In a troubled world we bring a warmth
                of God's love to the hungry souls of the
                earth —

                    The poor banished children of Adam
                and Eve dwell in the pure Hearts of Jesus and Mary
                the New Adam, and the New Eve, to live
                more deeply in the Father's will, in love
                The poor banished children of Adam and Eve offer
                a more pure offering in greater oneness
                in union with the pure and holy Hearts
                of Jesus and Mary —

                    Mary told Jacinta at Fatima


Excerpt from The Spirituality of Fatima

    ...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. (19)


19. For background material on Fatima, I am particularly indebted to
        Our Lady of Fatima’s Peace Plan from Heaven
        TAN Books and Publishers, Inc., 1983). p.9.


                Mary is the Queen of Peace



                    Our network of prayer chapters in
                8 languages gives honor to Mary
                with the Litany to Mary and venerates
                Jesus' Sacred Heart through the Litany to the
                Sacred Heart as we pray constantly, for the priests,
                the Church and the world.

                From the Litany to the Blessed Virgin Mary —
                Mary is the "Singular Vessel of Devotion"

                    In praying the prayers dedicated
                to the Sacred Heart and Immaculate Heart we grow in
                deeper oneness with God and deeper
                oneness with each other and
                greater holiness — this can help
                us be a stronger Church to help
                bring down greater grace for the
                Priests, Church and the world.

                    We love our priests so much and we
                love the Church and we dedicate our
                lives praying for them, the Church
                and the souls Jesus died for.

                    We pray before the exposed Eucharist
                in China, Indiana 24 hours a day — please
                help support us — come to the retreat —
                turn on the Shepherds of Christ radio — pray
                with us daily at 6:20

                    The voice of the Good Shepherd
                has been heard in the writings
                we have circulated to the priest
                these 16 years —

                Fr. Carter, S.J. our founder, authored 18 books
                on the spiritual life and had a doctorate
                in theology —



                Here is a quote from Bishop Fulton J.
                    Sheen about the Eucharist
                    and adoration from the Priestly Newsletter —


Newsletter March/April 1995

On Prayer before the Tabernacle

    Bishop Fulton Sheen, one of the most admired and influential speakers of this century, gives witness to the efficacy of praying before the Blessed Sacrament: “When I stand up to talk, people listen to me. They will follow what I have to say. St. Paul says: ‘What do you have that was not given to you? And if it was given, how can you boast as though it were not?’ (1 Cor 4:7). The secret of my power is that I have never in fifty-five years missed spending an hour in the presence of our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament. That’s where the power comes from. That’s where sermons are born. That’s where every good thought is conceived.”6


6. Through the Year with Fulton Sheen, compiled by Henry Dietrick, Servant Books.


                    We have spent an hour before the
                tabernacle, myself since 1989,
                All of our people spend one hour
                daily and attend daily Mass —

                Our lives are given to spread the
                Priestly Newsletter and Prayer Chapters praying
                for the priests, the Church and the world —
                centered in devotion to the 2 Hearts —
                Praying to the Sacred Heart and Immaculate Heart can help
                bring needed peace to the world —

                Jesus is truly present in His
                Divinity and humanity in the Eucharist —
                This is our Power —
                So much grace
                What a gift

                We want to spread the TRUTH
                    of Jesus — we need to be filled
                    with gratitude —

                    We are given the fountain of
                His life — in the Church — in the sacraments




                In baptism - we receive
                a special sharing in His life —
                our knowing and loving capacity
                is elevated —

                God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit live in the graced
                    baptized soul —

                Please Help us — this is Jesus' Movement


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.

end of Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart message


                    We are so grateful for the Church —
                for the sacraments — The Church
                a pillar of truth in the world —

                The Eucharist —
                    The Medicine of Immortality



                Look at all who gave to us — our
                popes and hierarchy and priests to
                build a strong Church —

                Oh God thank You — We want
                    this era of love Jesus told Fr. Carter
                    in Tell My People Messages —



        from Tell My People

Age of the Two Hearts

Jesus:  "My beloved priest-companion, I have allowed you to experience in extraordinary fashion the riches contained in My Heart and My Mother's Heart. I desire that you tell all My people about these riches. I desire that My people consecrate themselves to My Sacred Heart and to Mary's Immaculate Heart. My people are living in the beginnings of the age of the Two Hearts.

    "After the time of the purification is completed, this new era of the Church and the world will become firmly established. This era will be characterized by the triumph of the Immaculate Heart and the reign of My Sacred Heart. All those who consecrate themselves to My Heart and to My Mother's Heart will help to establish this glorious new age. I am Lord and Master. Please listen to My urgent request. Within Our Hearts you will experience the love and security, the peace and the joy, which you all desire. I love My people with a tremendous love, and in My love I give them this message!"

end of excerpt from Tell My People


                We beg you to listen and help us
                    do what Mary and Jesus have asked
                    for for 16 years 

                    We thank the priests and hierarchy
                for all they do for their lives
                given for us

                Fr. Carter would say as St. Ignatius said,     

What have I done for Christ?
What am I doing for Christ?
What ought I to be doing for Christ?

                    Christ is the head, we the members
                are to be united as 'a toe and a finger' —
                united to the Mass — the sacrifice
                of Calvary sacramentally made present —

                    Hope — the Shepherds of Christ offers hope —


Romans 8: 5-9

Those who are living by their natural inclinations have their minds on the things human nature desires; those who live in the Spirit have their minds on spiritual things. And human nature has nothing to look forward to but death, while the Spirit looks forward to life and peace, because the outlook of disordered human nature is opposed to God, since it does not submit to God's Law, and indeed it cannot, and those who live by their natural inclinations can never be pleasing to God. You, however, live not by your natural inclinations, but by the Spirit, since the Spirit of God has made a home in you. Indeed, anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him.



                We spread the Morning Offering
                    Card to all the souls of
                    the earth —
                    priests, elderly, families,
                    schools, Churches etc.


A Prayer before the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass

    Let me be a holy sacrifice and unite with God in the sacrament of His greatest love.

    I want to be one in Him in this act of love, where He gives Himself to me and I give myself as a sacrifice to Him. Let me be a holy sacrifice as I become one with Him in this my act of greatest love to Him.

    Let me unite with Him more, that I may more deeply love Him. May I help make reparation to His adorable Heart and the heart of His Mother, Mary. With greatest love, I offer myself to You and pray that You will accept my sacrifice of greatest love. I give myself to You and unite in Your gift of Yourself to me. Come and possess my soul.

    Cleanse me, strengthen me, heal me. Dear Holy Spirit act in the heart of Mary to make me more and more like Jesus.

    Father, I offer this my sacrifice, myself united to Jesus in the Holy Spirit to You. Help me to love God more deeply in this act of my greatest love.

    Give me the grace to grow in my knowledge, love and service of You and for this to be my greatest participation in the Mass. Give me the greatest graces to love You so deeply in this Mass, You who are so worthy of my love.

-Mass Book, December 27, 1995




                    The remedy of the world is to
                return to the love of God. In
                this lies our happiness and peace —
                we send our love and support to
                the priests with the Priestly Newsletter
                and we have a network of prayer
                chapters all over the world

                Mary's message at Fatima


Excerpt from the Spirituality of Fatima

by Fr. Edward Carter, S.J. 

October 13, 1917

                In her message that day, Our Blessed Mother told the children:

    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.(17)

                    Jesus' message to Fr. Carter

October 13, 1994

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.'

    "Jesus has told us that Shepherds of Christ Ministries includes: the priestly newsletter, Shepherds of Christ, Shepherds of Christ Associates prayer chapters, various publications, including books, whatever else Our Lord directs us to undertake.

    "As members of Shepherds of Christ Associates, you are an extremely important part of Shepherds of Christ Ministries. You have given great joy to the Heart of Jesus by responding to His invitation to become members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. As He draws you closer to His Heart and to His Mother's Heart as Associates members, He will fill you with an ever-increasing experience of His love, peace, and joy."

- From In the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, Newsletter of Shepherds of Christ Associates
by Fr. Edward J. Carter S.J., Volume 1, No. 1, 1995. p. 2.


                    God wants us to pray — we lay
                down our lives as members of
                the Body of Christ —


John 15: 5

I am the vine,
you are the branches.
Whoever remains in me, with me in him,
bears fruit in plenty;
for cut off from me you can do nothing.


                Jesus is the vine — life is in Him

                Through His pierced Heart on Calvary —
                    the Church was born — water and
                    blood flowed from His pierced Heart —
                        Water for Baptism
                        Blood for the Eucharist

                We live for the honor and glory of God —
                God Reigns in our hearts and homes
                We let go of inordinate attachments
                    that drive us from Him —

                Every act we do is united to the Mass
                    going on around the world —


Revelation 12: 11

 They have triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word to which they bore witness, because even in the face of death they did not cling to life.

Song: A Priest is a Gift from God


                Fr. Carter received a message May 31, 1994
                    to start the Priestly Newsletter and send to
                    all priests — 16 years ago

                PLEASE HELP US

                DO WHAT Mary and
                    Jesus say


July 31, 1994

Words of Jesus to Members of
Shepherds of Christ Associates:

"My beloved priest-companion, I intend to use the priestly newsletter, Shepherds of Christ, and the movement, Shepherds of Christ Associates, in a powerful way for the renewal of My Church and the world.

"I will use the newsletter and the chapters of Shepherds of Christ Associates as a powerful instrument for spreading devotion to My Heart and My Mother's Heart.

"I am calling many to become members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. To all of them I will give great blessings. I will use them as instruments to help bring about the triumph of the Immaculate Heart and the reign of My Sacred Heart. I will give great graces to the members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. I will call them to be deeply united to My Heart and to Mary's Heart as I lead them ever closer to My Father in the Holy Spirit."

                God makes the rules

                Man seeks independence from God

                The devil wants right to look wrong and
                    wrong to look right —

                Man puts himself above God when
                    he sins

                Like Adam and Eve
                Man prefers himself to God

                The core of sin — seeking to be
                    independent of God —

                Lust, envy, jealousy, covetousness,
                pride etc. has entered the world
                to disrupt the authentic nature
                of the human person

                We, because of our fallen human
                nature have a distorted image
                of God, of self, of others —

                Disobedience ruptures our
                    relationship with God —

                The devil wants disunity, rebelliousness
                    raising over God and authority


                 First Sunday of Lent

Luke 4: 1-13

   Filled with the Holy Spirit, Jesus left the Jordan and was led by the Spirit into the desert, for forty days being put to the test by the devil. During that time he ate nothing and at the end he was hungry. Then the devil said to him, ‘If you are Son of God, tell this stone to turn into a loaf.’ But Jesus replied, ‘Scripture says:

    Human beings live not on bread alone.

   Then leading him to a height, the devil showed him in a moment of time all the kingdoms of the world and said to him, ‘I will give you all this power and their splendour, for it has been handed over to me, for me to give it to anyone I choose.& Do homage, then, to me, and it shall all be yours.’ But Jesus answered him, ‘Scripture says:

     You must do homage to the Lord your God,
        him alone you must serve.’

   Then he led him to Jerusalem and set him on the parapet of the Temple. ‘If you are Son of God,’ he said to him, ‘throw yourself down from here, for scripture says:

       He has given his angels orders about you,
            to guard you,

and again:

 They will carry you in their arms
   in case you trip over a stone.’

But Jesus answered him, ‘Scripture says:

Do not put the Lord your God to the test.’

Having exhausted every way of putting him to the test, the devil left him, until the opportune moment.


                The Disobedience of Adam and Eve
                    brought disorder to the world

                The devil tries to make good look
                    evil and evil look good —

                God created a world with perfect
                    harmony, perfect harmony
                    between human beings,
                    between humans and creation —

                The devil wants you to think
                    you act independent of God —

                The devil wants you to sin
                Blame enters the world with sin —

                God is all just —

                When somebody sins and they lie
                    they offend God who
                    is all just —

                Sin upsets the order willed by God —

                Cain had anger, envy, wickedness —
                    pride, arrogance and
                    revenge —


                Men seek to be like God without God

                God desires a pure heart —
                    not an evil wicked heart


                    We see how Jesus gives us the
                bread of life — how Jesus wants us
                to take the time to be with Jesus —
                Jesus wants us to long for Him — to
                not try to look for more than what our
                life is — We are here for Him —
                We are here to love and serve Him —
                To be filled with such joy to know
                the Divine Almighty God - loves us
                so much — He remains with us —
                God wants us to ponder how He
                dwells in the graced baptized soul —
                The Father, Son and Holy Spirit lives in us —

                Oh Father I know You and I love You so
                    much — Oh my beloved Father I
                    ponder how You remain in my
                    graced, baptized soul — Oh
                    Jesus You are my beloved — I thirst for
                    You — I love You — I want to be so
                    close to You my beloved Jesus —

                Oh Holy Spirit fill me with love —
                    give me wisdom — let me know You
                    more and more my God —

                    Oh my beloved, I love You —
                Oh Holy Spirit help me — I love You so much —
                I need You — I want You to permeate my
                soul, my God —

                    Today is my mom's birthday and Father Joe's mother's
                birthday, 58 years ago — I was 5 when my
                mom died, but I remember her and I know
                that great loss — Many have had their moms
                for so many years — are we so grateful to
                God for all the gifts we received from those
                He gave us in our lives — As a little girl
                of 5 my mom left and I know the anniversaries and
                I learned about heaven at 5 because I
                knew my mom went there and so I had to
                think of mom and not have her with me —       

                I learned about God's will at 5 — God wanted
                    mom and she was still alive in heaven — God
                    took her — my dad taught us about obedience,
                    about life and I had a wonderful step-mom,
                    but she was not my mom —

                    My mom was born 105 years ago and so
                was my dad — I remember the Fatima video
                of Bloody Sunday in 1905 — but when she lived
                and my dad — they saw World War I and Fatima and
                they were married around World War II and my
                brother was born 1937 —

                Life is really short —

                When I was 48 — the age my mom died Mary
                    was appearing every day — I knew my
                    heavenly Mother then and she told me about
                    the rosary and so did Jesus



                The rainbow was a direction I received was
                    to be on the front —

                Mary after she appeared every day for 14
                    months appeared in Clearwater on the day the
                    Red Rosary Book left the printer —
                    December 17, 1996


shipped from the printers
December 17, 1996

Mary appeared
December 17, 1996


                We don't own our lives and they are short —
                    like my mom — she had me and Fr. Joe and
                    her gift still goes on in this world —
                    helping people —

                People can be jealous, possessive and
                    willful — where they feel they own their
                    life and should not be told anything to do
                    by anybody —

                God told Adam and Eve what to do and they sinned —
                    they wanted their own way — the devil tempted
                    them — now today — we the descendants of
                    Adam and Eve suffer — all these years later
                    because they did their own will —

                God gives us life to serve Him and serve others —
                    When we just do our own will opposed to God
                    we are hurting lots of people — When we say
                    "nobody will tell me what to do" God put us
                    here — a short life, for His purpose and we
                    effect others by how we live obedient
                    to God's will or disobedient to God's will —
                    When we act selfishly and disobediently —
                    We don't feel good — We are on the ark
                    of life — Those on Noah's ark survived —
                    God flooded the others —

                God wants purity —

                God wants us to live for His purpose — to
                    live in love — to serve Him and others —

                People a century later are affected by how
                    we live —

                I am still blessed by Abraham's act of obedience —
                I am suffering from Adam and Eve's sinfulness —

                I am blessed by the Saints who lived holy
                    lives and built up the Kingdom of God
                    who built up the world —
                    Those who built up the Church —

                Those like Hitler who did what he did hurt
                    the whole world — people are wounded
                    their children and others suffer from their
                    woundedness —

                Every thing we do should be for the honor and
                    glory of God — not coming from
                    a selfish motive to be boss —
                    acting against God's will —

                How I pray effects everybody —
                How I love effects everybody
                How I live to love and serve God and do His will

                How I live out my life for God and others as
                    God commands us in the greatest
                    commandment —

Matthew 22: 36-40

'Master, which is the greatest commandment of the Law?' Jesus said to him, 'You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and the first commandment. The second resembles it: You must love your neighbour as yourself. On these two commandments hang the whole Law, and the Prophets too.'


                Saints like St. Agnes, Saints like Saint Joseph —
                    Saints who established convents —
                    Saint John of the Cross —

                Now they make up the communion of Saints


                    From Response in Christ by Edward J. Carter, S.J.

Relationship with Members of the Church

There is but one true Church of Christ. Yet this one Church has three different states of existence. There is the pilgrim Church, the Church of this world, composed of members who have received the grace of Christ and strive for its development. They have not yet obtained the goal of their efforts, as have the members of the heavenly Church, who enjoy God in eternal happiness. The Church suffering is an intermediate state of existence necessary for those who had not achieved the required purification as members of the pilgrim Church. Although there are these three phases of the Church’s existence, there is a profound union existing between all the members. All these members possess the same basic life of grace in Christ, and this common life establishes the most intimate bonds of love. In our preceding chapter, we discussed the pilgrim Church. Let us now consider the Church suffering and the heavenly Church.

The members of the Church suffering are those who have departed from this life in an incomplete state of Christian development. Their development is incomplete in the sense that grace has not fully taken possession of them, and, as a result, they are yet closed in upon themselves to a greater or lesser degree. They as yet cannot open themselves out in complete love to the Triune God in the beatific vision. They must undergo a further purification, a purification which could have been achieved upon earth with merit. Now the purification must be achieved with no merit attached. The pain of this purification is mixed with the certain expectation of achieving the vision of God. We can hasten the advent of this vision for this people by the offering of prayers and other good works. Scripture itself refers to our action on behalf of those in purgatory in Chapter 12 of the Second Book of Maccabees beginning with verse 38.

The members of the heavenly Church are those in whom the life of grace has taken full possession and has reached its completion in the life of glory. Faith now is unnecessary, as the light of glory gives the human intellect a new strength and capacity for seeing God face-to-face. While the Christian was a wayfarer, he received the imprint of the indwelling Trinity as he shared in God’s own life. Now in heaven that grace-life and possession of God reaches its completion—the absolute completion is not achieved, however, until the resurrection of the body. The divine persons give Themselves to the beatified in a profound union far surpassing that of the indwelling of the Trinity experienced here below.

This life of heaven is still the Christ-life, for just as we possess a share in Trinitarian life here below as mediated by Christ, and exercise this grace-life as structured by Him, so also in heaven is the mediation of Christ present. In the words of Rahner, "One always sees the Father through Jesus. Just as immediately as this, for the directness of the vision of God is not a denial of the mediatorship of Christ as man."14 And not only does the humanity of Christ unite the blessed to God, but also, in some way, to the whole of creation. This is merely a completion of what is begun here below, namely, the union with Christ in His humanity establishing the Christian in a special relationship with God, with other men, and with the whole of creation. We have a glimpse, therefore, of the fullness of life which members of the heavenly Church possess.

The heavenly Church, as St. Thomas says, is the true Church.15 The Church of this earth and the Church of purgatory are, each in its own way, reaching out in loving hope for the heavenly Jerusalem. Vatican II puts it very simply: "The Church, to which we are called in Christ Jesus, and in which we acquire sanctity through the grace of God, will attain her full perfection only in the glory of heaven."16

The members of the heavenly Church can help us in living our life of grace until we too share its fullness with them. Their power of intercession on our behalf is but another ramification of the communal aspect of Christianity. We are meant to help others grow in Christ. We, in turn, are intended by God to receive aid from others—yes, from members of the heavenly Church, as well as from those with whom we dwell here below.

Not only can we be aided by the saints’ intercession, but the example of the canonized saints can also be of great value to us. They have concretely proved that full holiness is possible. Such an inspiration is of real worth when we are tempted to think that Christian sanctity in its higher degrees is impossible of attainment. Moreover, the canonized saints, in their diversity, teach us that there are many authentic versions of Christian holiness. They can be innovators in showing us that there are numerous possibilities in assimilating the mystery of Christ, although the basic assimilation remains the same for all Christians of all times. In the opinion of Rahner this is one of the chief roles the canonized saints exert in the life of the Church.17

                Sing: I Am the Bread of Life

                Oh my God I want that union with You, where I know
                    so deeply Your presence —

                Oh my God — You are my all —
                I thirst to receive the Eucharist —
                I love You so much —

                Jesus: Oh that souls were loving in their hearts —
                    Surrendering that I can touch them with My ways —
                    Allowing the Holy Spirit to fill them with love —
                        love for the will of God —
                    Not controlling, but surrendering —

                    Not hard in heart from their old wounds they fail
                        to recognize and in pride think they know
                        it all —

                    They are like a closed pipe — they are in charge —
                        closed and hard

                    It is so simple — My mission in the Shepherds of Christ is
                        surrendering — I wrote the Second Blue Book
                        for you to tell the world — you do not read or
                        live My messages in the Blue Book —

                    You are in charge and ready to fight to stay where you

                    The spiritual life will grow in you when you surrender
                        to God —
                        Let God's Plan for you rule your lives —
                        Old habits are like gutters in the bowling lane —
                            you get no strikes — you knock no pins
                        You go up to bowl and time after time — the
                            same rut and gutter

                        I gave you the Blue Books — Fr. Carter loved
                            the Blue Books — Fr. Carter gave his life
                            discerning and distributing My messages —

                        Fr. Carter your founder told you what to do, but
                            more and more
                        You continue the way of Eve and all these centuries
                            later — what has marked your life —

                        I put you on this earth to do My work —

                        Eve rebelled

                        The more you live the consecration, the holier
                            you become


From Fr. Carter's Spirituality Handbook

Consecration to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary

We have already spoken of how we are incorporated into Christ at Baptism. Now we shall speak of the life which comes to us in Baptism in terms of consecration:

"To consecrate means to make sacred, to make holy. Only God can make a being holy. So to speak of our consecration is to speak of God's activity in making us holy, His activity of giving us a share in His own holiness. At Baptism we receive a share in God's life, a share in His holiness. Christ is the Mediator of this grace life. We are baptized into Christ, into His death and resurrection. In Baptism we become holy by sharing in the holiness of Christ. We become consecrated, sealed with the divine holiness. We belong to the Father, through Christ, in the Holy Spirit.

"On our part, we must respond to God's consecration of us. We must live out the consecration of Baptism. We must realize what God has done for us in Christ and live according to this awareness. We need to live the life of holiness and grow in it. In other words, we must develop the life of grace, the Christ-life.

"What God has done for us in Christ involves Mary. God has given us a Christ-life, our life of grace, and Mary is the Mother of this Christ-life. Consequently, living out our life of consecration to God—living out the Christ-life—includes allowing Mary to increasingly be the Mother of our Christ-life.

"Consecration to Mary, therefore, is an aspect of our consecration to Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. It is entrusting ourselves entirely to her maternal love so that she can bring us ever closer to Jesus, so that we can increasingly live out our consecration to God in Christ.

"At Fatima, Our Lady asked that we consecrate ourselves to her Immaculate Heart. Mary shows us her heart as a symbol of her love for God and us. She asks us to make a return of love to her, to consecrate ourselves to her, to give ourselves to her completely. She wants us to entrust ourselves to her completely so that she may help us love God and neighbor.

"As stated above, consecration to Mary is an aspect of our consecration to God in Christ and she has asked for consecration to her Heart so that she may assist us. Christ, in turn, invites us to live out this consecration to Him through consecration to His Sacred Heart. We see the divine symmetry: consecration to the Immaculate Heart helps us to live out consecration to Christ Who reveals His Heart as symbol of His life of love in all its aspects, including His tremendous love for each of us individually. His Heart also asks for our love in return, a return which ideally is summed up in consecration to Jesus' Heart. Through this consecration we give ourselves completely to Jesus through the Immaculate Heart. In this consecration to Jesus, we promise to strive to live according to His Father's will in all things." (2)

                    The more you do your will opposed to My will — the
                        more blind you are and you go down a path
                        that leads to greater and greater willfulness and

                    You become more miserable from sinning, selfishness,
                        distancing yourself from Me —
                        the more you distance yourself from Me —
                        the more miserable you become —
                        the more you work out your misery by your
                            wounded disordered, human nature —

                        You resort to old habits to handle things and
                            make you feel pleasure for a moment —
                            sin distances yourself from Me —
                            Sin makes you miserable —

                    Satan can send people to lead you from obedience —
                        they are disobedient — they want their way —
                        they want control — control over you —

                    You can give into their ways that lead you
                        further and further from Me

                    Adam and Eve rebelled — you suffer today


                    I obeyed My Father to My death on the cross —
                    Study the crucifix —

                    I came to teach you obedience to the will of

                    The devil lures you through others to disobey —
                        change the plan —

                    You are miserable —
                    You become more disobedient
                    You do more sin to feel better you think —

                    You feel good when you don't sin —
                    You feel good in your heart in obedience and being
                        closer to God — doing His will
                    You are rooted in God —

                    Disobedience can be seen in how Adam and
                        Eve effected even you today


                    Suffering —


                    Abraham was blessed

                    Moses obeyed Me, but the others built a molten

                    Saul disobeyed his directions

                    David was made King

                    Jeremiah was persecuted

                    the Apostles many crucified

                    Stephen stoned

                    These men still speak today in living
                        lives according to God's will —


Hebrews Chapter 11

Only faith can guarantee the blessings that we hope for, or prove the existence of realities that are unseen. It is for their faith that our ancestors are acknowledged.

    It is by faith that we understand that the ages were created by a word from God, so that from the invisible the visible world came to be. 

    It was because of his faith that Abel offered God a better sacrifice than Cain, and for that he was acknowledged as upright when God himself made acknowledgement of his offerings. Though he is dead, he still speaks by faith. 

    It was because of his faith that Enoch was taken up and did not experience death: he was no more, because God took him; because before his assumption he was acknowledged to have pleased God. Now it is impossible to please God without faith, since anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and rewards those who seek him. 

    It was through his faith that Noah, when he had been warned by God of something that had never been seen before, took care to build an ark to save his family. His faith was a judgement on the world, and he was able to claim the uprightness which comes from faith. 

    It was by faith that Abraham obeyed the call to set out for a country that was the inheritance given to him and his descendants, and that he set out without knowing where he was going. By faith he sojourned in the Promised Land as though it were not his, living in tents with Isaac and Jacob, who were heirs with him of the same promise. He looked forward to the well–founded city, designed and built by God. 

    It was equally by faith that Sarah, in spite of being past the age, was made able to conceive, because she believed that he who had made the promise was faithful to it. Because of this, there came from one man, and one who already had the mark of death on him, descendants as numerous as the stars of heaven and the grains of sand on the seashore which cannot be counted.   

    All these died in faith, before receiving any of the things that had been promised, but they saw them in the far distance and welcomed them, recognising that they were only strangers and nomads on earth. People who use such terms about themselves make it quite plain that they are in search of a homeland. If they had meant the country they came from, they would have had the opportunity to return to it; but in fact they were longing for a better homeland, their heavenly homeland. That is why God is not ashamed to be called their God, since he has founded the city for them. 

    It was by faith that Abraham, when put to the test, offered up Isaac. He offered to sacrifice his only son even though he had yet to receive what had been promised, and he had been told: Isaac is the one through whom your name will be carried on. He was confident that God had the power even to raise the dead; and so, figuratively speaking, he was given back Isaac from the dead. 

    It was by faith that this same Isaac gave his blessing to Jacob and Esau for the still distant future. By faith Jacob, when he was dying, blessed each of Joseph’s sons, bowed in reverence, as he leant on his staff. It was by faith that, when he was about to die, Joseph mentioned the Exodus of the Israelites and gave instructions about his own remains. 

    It was by faith that Moses, when he was born, was kept hidden by his parents for three months; because they saw that he was a fine child; they were not afraid of the royal edict. It was by faith that, when he was grown up, Moses refused to be known as the son of Pharaoh’s daughter and chose to be ill–treated in company with God’s people rather than to enjoy the transitory pleasures of sin. He considered that the humiliations offered to the Anointed were something more precious than all the treasures of Egypt, because he had his eyes fixed on the reward. It was by faith that he left Egypt without fear of the king’s anger; he held to his purpose like someone who could see the Invisible. It was by faith that he kept the Passover and sprinkled the blood to prevent the Destroyer from touching any of their first–born sons. It was by faith they crossed the Red Sea as easily as dry land, while the Egyptians, trying to do the same, were drowned.  

    It was through faith that the walls of Jericho fell down when the people had marched round them for seven days. It was by faith that Rahab the prostitute welcomed the spies and so was not killed with the unbelievers.

    What more shall I say? There is not time for me to give an account of Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah, or of David, Samuel and the prophets. These were men who through faith conquered kingdoms, did what was upright and earned the promises. They could keep a lion’s mouth shut, put out blazing fires and emerge unscathed from battle. They were weak people who were given strength to be brave in war and drive back foreign invaders. Some returned to their wives from the dead by resurrection; and others submitted to torture, refusing release so that they would rise again to a better life. Some had to bear being pilloried and flogged, or even chained up in prison. They were stoned, or sawn in half, or killed by the sword; they were homeless, and wore only the skins of sheep and goats; they were in want and hardship, and maltreated. They were too good for the world and they wandered in deserts and mountains and in caves and ravines. These all won acknowledgement through their faith, but they did not receive what was promised, since God had made provision for us to have something better, and they were not to reach perfection except with us.


From Response in Christ by Fr. Edward J. Carter, S.J.

What is the nature of sin? Contemporary theology emphasizes that sin is not primarily a violation of a law, but a disruption of personal relationships. Sin is a refusal to love. Serious sin is a radical refusal to love. Venial sin is a partial refusal to love. 

The most obvious personal relationship that is affected by sin is that between God and the sinner. In sinning a man fails, to a lesser or greater degree, to accept God's loving gift of Himself. He fails also to respond with his own gift of love. In serious sin man refuses intimate friendship with God. In venial sin he dulls the ardor of that friendship.

                    I am the Bread of life —

                    Life is in Me


John 6: 51-58

I am the living bread
   which has come down from heaven.
Anyone who eats this bread
   will live for ever;
and the bread that I shall give
is my flesh, for the life of the world.'

    Then the Jews started arguing among themselves, 'How can this man give us his flesh to eat?' Jesus replied to them:

In all truth I tell you,
if you do not eat
   the flesh of the Son of man
and drink his blood,
you have no life in you.
Anyone who does eat my flesh
   and drink my blood
has eternal life,
and I shall raise that person up
   on the last day.
For my flesh is real food
and my blood is real drink.
Whoever eats my flesh
   and drinks my blood
lives in me
and I live in that person.
As the living Father sent me
and I draw life from the Father,
so whoever eats me
   will also draw life from me.
This is the bread
   which has come down from heaven;
it is not like the bread our ancestors ate:
they are dead,
but anyone who eats this bread
   will live for ever.


                    I have watched some manipulate in jealousy —
                        try to stop the unity I want for the
                        world —

                    Dividing for your own personal possessiveness
                        is evil —

                    I want unity —

                    I cry for that oneness and beg you to be holy

                    I beg you to spread the consecration to
                        My Heart and My Mother's Heart
                        for peace and unity and love —
                        purity —

                    What is your motive


             DO GOD'S WILL

                  This determines your actions
                       if you are growing in holiness —

                    A person can cause division for affection —
                        This causes divorces
                        If you want to control others doing God's
                            will and block them for your vain
                            glory — you are acting for satan —

                        Satan presses to control
                        Satan presses to put those doing God's will
                            under — while he takes over
                            in the willful person who gives
                            into him (satan) hurting

                    I cry blood for I love you so much and you
                        give into your own self glory and then
                        you act like you did nothing and hurt
                        others and the building of My Kingdom more —

                    You don't even make amends to Me for your
                        sins —

                    I cry blood — for I love you and have called
                        you to be holy —
                        to say you are sorry when you sin
                            selfishly against Me and you
                            can lie and never make up for
                            your sins and
                            you go deeper and deeper into sin, division
                                and darkness

                    I love you so much
                    Obey My Commandments

                    This leads to peace and holiness

                    Obey your superiors doing God's will —
                        don't fight one in charge
                        of you doing what God wants —

                    You are fighting Me —

                    A fool fights God's chosen ones —

                    Pray for obedience in the world —

                    Don't control — seeking dominance for dominance
                        sake —

                    A person was shamed long ago and every time
                        he went home — he felt a loss of
                        power —
                        So he pressed on others in his life
                            to get power — so he could
                            go home and look as if nothing
                            bothered him and he was in control —

                        Power struggle
                            I lost power at home —
                            So I press on others to get power making

                        What you do to others —
                            you do to Me —

                    In alcoholic homes — many find it
                        hard to go home because they are
                        put in roles formed long ago that are dysfunctional

                    So they start problems with others to
                        get power before they go home

                    You are not to be unjust to innocent
                        others — it is sin —
                        You are to be holy —
                        You are to stop projecting your
                            wounded past on others

                    You hurt yourselves, Me and everyone
                        I am using to build My Kingdom
                        for your selfish sins —

                    Deal with your past —

                    If you were wounded —
                    If you are suffering children growing
                        up —
                        let it be as it should be —
                        Your life is to grow in holiness
                            and love

                        Being angry with your brother for
                            your old wounds is sin —


Luke 12: 57-59

    ‘Why not judge for yourselves what is upright? For example: when you are going to court with your opponent, make an effort to settle with him on the way, or he may drag you before the judge and the judge hand you over to the officer and the officer have you thrown into prison. I tell you, you will not get out till you have paid the very last penny.’


                    I say settle with your brother —

                    You start a fight —
                    You punish by disconnecting in hate —

                    Then you come to My altar
                    Go home and settle with your brother —

                    Come to Me and pray when you burned your
                        brother for your anger —

                    Settle with your brother —

                    I watch people angry and making others
                        suffer from their anger — day after
                        day — then come to act like they
                        can ignore their hateful angered hearts
                        and pray before Me —

                    I tell you to make up

                    I tell you don't come to My altar with
                        your hate filled angry heart —

                    You don't understand Me at all —
                        I know your motives — your
                        impurities I know your heart —

                    I spit you out — when you make others
                        suffer for your anger and carry it
                        out day after day — hard nosed hate

                    I am love —

                    Don't come to My altar and act like I don't
                        know the hatred and punishment
                        in your heart for your brother — your
                        innocent brother and you project
                        your hatred on him from your old
                        ugly habits and wounds

                    I am love

                    I am kind and gentle of heart —

                    Obedience is obedience —

                    I died on the cross doing the Father's will
                        in obedience —

                    I died for your hard heart — I know your
                        anger, your control for the sake of
                        seeking dominance —
                        I know your sins —
                        I paid for them —

                    When you were wronged 10, 20 years ago and
                        you act out your wounds on innocent
                        others now — think of the whippings
                        I took for your sins

                    Denial — lies — about your sin hurts
                        your relationship with Me and others —

                    I am all just —
                    I love what is right —

                    I despise lying, manipulated, hard —
                        hearts that are set in their sins —
                        prideful lying about their ways and
                        then come before My altar —
                        the Church feels your disunity and hate —

                    Manipulating out of jealousy, possessiveness
                        has been the reason for many failed marriages —
                        Seek God's will and repair the breaches you
                        are responsible for —
                        I am love — I despise deception, manipulation and lies

                    I despise those who work against
                        My will and block the ones doing
                        My will in building My Kingdom —

                    I died and rose —
                    I was beaten for your lies —
                    I know your sins —

                    Happiness lies in your relationship —
                        with Me —

                    Sin drives us apart —

                    Sin is responsible for your misery and darkness

                    Nothing here will satisfy you —
                        when you sin and hurt your relationship
                            with Me

                        I know all things

                    Those who suffer at the hands of
                        those sinning will have their
                        reward — They suffer for souls and
                        for My Church — I ask you to
                        be holy — perfected as your heavenly Father is perfect

                    Jesus: Trees do bend though straight and
                    tall — Bend the stubborn heart and

                        I give you the green grass and
                    the beauty of a new day — the
                    flowers and the new buds on the trees —
                    You were put on this earth to
                    serve your God and to love one
                    another —

                        Trees do bend though straight
                    and tall — My beauty given to you
                    is sufficient for you, but you
                    see not and hear not the gifts
                    I give you.

                    Come unto Me all who labor and
                    are weary and find rest for your
                    soul —

                        Lay your head on My
                    shoulder and learn from Me —
                    for I am gentle and kind of Heart
                    but your hearts are not loving and
                    you have become so hard —
                    You ignore My gentle letters
                    of love — a torrential wind doesn't
                    shake your willful ways —

                        How do I reach you when
                    you ignore Me and you will not
                    be shaken — How do I reach one who
                    wants their way and is willful
                    opposing My will — with all the
                    gifts I give you, My gentle letters
                    of love — My call for reparation
                    in the days of retreat — How do
                    I reach you — you who ignore
                    Me and the Lady of Fatima,
                    Fr. Carter's messages given
                    in Tell My People

                        How do I reach you in your
                    willful ways — you consumed
                    with anger and darkness instead
                    of gratitude and love and giving for
                    all the gifts I have given and requested
                    simple things, but you are angry and
                    you feel you own your lives,
                    your money, you make a kingdom
                    not for your Master, but to
                    play games with your God who
                    loves you and created you to be
                    likened to Him.

                    You sin and act like I don't
                    know it — then come to My
                    altar to promote your good
                    among men —

                    Obey those in the Church over you —
                    Obey your superiors

                    Don't test your God any
                        longer —

                    I have given signs and gifts and
                        am ignored —

                    I have asked for these small
                        things — reparation, gratitude
                        holiness and you smite Me —
                        block Me
                        rebel against Me —
                        kill babies —

                    Worry about men and what they
                        think, but fail to see
                        how I am offended —
                        offended by your sins —

                    The sinner wants vindication,
                        but doesn't admit his
                        sin and you run as he
                        takes time away from
                        My simple requests — the
                        requests of your Mother for
                        peace —

                    Pray the rosary

                    The message I gave to Fr. Carter


July 31, 1994

Words of Jesus to Members of
Shepherds of Christ Associates:

"My beloved priest-companion, I intend to use the priestly newsletter, Shepherds of Christ, and the movement, Shepherds of Christ Associates, in a powerful way for the renewal of My Church and the world.

"I will use the newsletter and the chapters of Shepherds of Christ Associates as a powerful instrument for spreading devotion to My Heart and My Mother's Heart.

"I am calling many to become members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. To all of them I will give great blessings. I will use them as instruments to help bring about the triumph of the Immaculate Heart and the reign of My Sacred Heart. I will give great graces to the members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. I will call them to be deeply united to My Heart and to Mary's Heart as I lead them ever closer to My Father in the Holy Spirit."

- Message from Jesus to Father Edward J. Carter, S.J., Founder, as given on July 31, 1994,
feast of Saint Ignatius Loyola, Founder of the Society of Jesus (The Jesuits)

                Mary: I beg you to listen before it
                    is too late —

                Jesus called you to prayer
                Jesus called you to help in the
                    circulation of these messages —

                    You have rebelled against God —
                Listen before it is too late —
                You are a rebellious race —
                You are rebelling against a
                    just God —
                What have you to show for
                    your willfulness

                I am Mary your Mother
                The Lady of Clearwater —
                The Lady of Fatima in the
                    Americas —

                You have ignored My message
                    and the message of Jesus —

                There was the holocaust of World War II
                Now there is this holocaust of the
                    babies —

                Put it off until tomorrow
                Cause conflict
                Lend not a helping hand
                I cry blood —

Excerpt from The Spirituality of Fatima

by Fr. Edward Carter, S.J.

July 13, 1917

    "During her appearance in July, Our Lady, in answer to Lucia's plea, promised that in October she would work a great miracle so that all might believe and know who she was. 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." (11)

    "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.

    "The war (World War I, then raging) is going to end. But if people do not stop offending God, another and worse one will begin in the reign of Pius XI. When you shall see a night illuminated by an unknown light [January 2, 1938], know that this is the great sign that God gives you that He is going to punish the world for its many crimes by means of war, hunger, and persecution of the Church and the Holy Father. (12)

    "To prevent this, I shall come to ask for the consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart and the Communion of Reparation on the five first Saturdays. If my requests are granted, Russia will be converted and there will be peace. If not, she will scatter her errors throughout the world, provoking wars and persecutions of the Church. The good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer, and various nations will be destroyed....

    "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." (13)

 11. For background material on Fatima, I am particularly indebted to 
    Our Lady of Fatima's Peace Plan from Heaven

Excerpt from The Spirituality of Fatima

August 13, 1917

"Because of the excitement caused by the apparitions, the civil authorities were so alarmed that they kidnapped the three young visionaries and put them in jail. The incarceration period included the day of August 13. Consequently, Our Lady did not appear to the children on this particular 13th. The authorities, fearing reaction on the part of the people, quickly released the children.


October 8, 1997

Jesus:  Seedless, barren, not bringing forth fruit on the vine. I come to be heard and who pays Me heed. To a people of stiffs I address this issue, what think you when the water is gone from the trough?

    Do you think you will then worship the molten calf or will you be ready for surrender then?

    Oh, you thankless race, anger and wrath is the mind of your God. You do not worry, My messenger, for I am God and I speak to you. You think you are alone and I have chosen you. Your money is your god, oh people of Zion - your money in the pockets is the sound that brings you joy.

    What brings Me joy is the songs of the faithful, praising and worshipping God, but I go to the tent and there is the molten calf and an abased nation of stiffs, heartless and filled with fear. I beg of you to stop now before it is too late, but you do not know of the chastisement I have in store for you - it is under the plan of the Father.

    The children who walk in darkness carried a molten calf in their arms and the God of justice struck the earth.

    He struck you, senseless people, because you would not listen.

    I did not put you on the earth and then leave you to yourselves. I dwelt amongst you to guide you in all your ways and the people today spit on Me as they did 2,000 years before. For all these years I waited for the likes of you, My people, and why should you have more time for false joy? Joy is not in the molten calf. It is in the words of the Savior.

    My Words are your truth, yet you try to wash them away as hearsay and of no importance.

    My Word is the Word of God mighty and true. I have been ignored and defiled in My Word. I smite you, My senseless race. I allow the dragon to devour your young for you are the senseless race. I allow the dragon to devour your young for you are the senseless children of Eve.

    Debased, proud and dead, really dead in your hearts.

    I give you sunshine and rain and you want flowers and glory.

    The glory is Mine or I will have to continue to listen to the wailing widow, a barren branch, a company of stiffs.

    Ignore Me no longer senseless ones. My hand is upon you. It will come down and wipe out the senseless virgins, the ones singing to the molten calf.

    Rachel could hear the slaughter of her children and she wept such bitter tears. The Lady Clothed as the Sun bore the barren race; they did not come to her grace-filled womb.

    The thankless race marched into a pit of doom and destruction.

    As I was pressed in the garden watching the days at hand, as I was squeezed, what came forth from My pores was the saving Blood for the children of Zion and when they ate from the land they feasted on rich food and strong drinks, the candy of the earth and it made them sick - sick to the death of their souls and the Lady Clothed as the Sun heard the cries of her sick children. I give you the medicine for the sick children in these writings and they chase you and make you fall to the ground. I watched you skin your knees when you carried the scrolls that contained My letters of love, My words from the depths of My Heart. You fell as I once did on the way to Calvary. I fell, I skinned My knees, My Body burned and I got up and went to the end.

    The end was the beginning for the children of Zion for at that hill My cross was planted erect, a tree of life, and the juice that was squeezed 'till there was no more from the one "Son of Man, the Son of God", was the juice of the Man. It was His saving Blood.

    They pressed Me in the Garden of Olives and I bled for the thankless race. They hung Me on a tree on the hill of Calvary. When I gave them the New Eve they chose the molten calf. They spit on My Mother, they ignored the visitations. She came and gave to the children to remind them of their covenant with God.

    Oh senseless ones, so many will now fall, for I hung there and to the right was one and to the left another. The one was saved; the other was cursed. You picked from the tree when you should have obeyed your Father. He gave you His will. He said, "You may eat of all the trees in the garden but not this one." and you continually ate of the forbidden fruit. I warned you, My children, and you chased My messengers and made them run. I gave to you My Book of Life, My Bible, and you ate the sick fruit and it made you so sick you wanted to die but you kept eating when I told you the end was near and now that the end has come, what do you say for yourself? You ignored the Lady Clothed as the Sun. She appeared in all glory and splendor and so many months later so few go to her site to even see her. So is it My fault or yours our money does not come to publish your books and tell the world about the Woman in Florida? It is not My fault, I am God. I am the faultless One.

    You want joy. I have no joy for the likes of you, My children of Zion, you have usurped My thrones and treated My body as rubbish. I am God. I come in the Eucharist and I am ignored. I speak no longer. The days that follow will be the days to cleanse this earth.

    I am angered beyond all anger for the way My Mother has been treated in Florida by the thankless race. They have worshipped the molten calf and ignored the Lady of Light, the Lady Clothed as the Sun, the Lady of Fatima in the Americas, Our Lady of Guadalupe, bringing forth her children. The good will suffer with the bad; the wheat will be separated from the darnel (weeds). You walked like little stiff men with your haughty hearts. Your heads were your gods. I gave you great minds to comprehend My mysteries and you used your minds to worship false gods and make movies that defile My priesthood. What of your minds? I do not even have energy to tell you how unworthy you used the mind, the intellect I gave you. You used this great faculty to commit the worst sins, and My head was crowned with the sharpest thorns for your sick earth. Oh, you squeezed the Blood from the Son of Man. You pressed that Man in the garden, when He knew this race of this day.

    I now see the Woman on the building, My Mother, so loving to the children I gave her and the mean ones threw acid on her face. Oh, you race of vile hearts and thankless ways. I will clothe the holy ones in the white robes of glory. The thankless ones I will turn over to the red men that will hand them over to the keeper of the pit and their bodies will be burned in the burning sulfur of the pool of death. Come, My children of light, your Mother called you through the consecration. She showed you the way home to My Heart. She carried a lighted lamp and lighted your way in the darkness. You were not foolish like the virgins that carried a lamp without a light. Your light for the lamp was My life alive in your hearts. When the darkest night comes you will know the flames of My love alive in your lighted hearts, burning with the fire from the love of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I give you the fuel, My faithful virgins. I gave you the fuel to light your lamps that in the dark night that lies ahead, you will still shine as a beacon light, a light of intense brightness no matter how dark the night. You will not die for your refuge is the fire of the Sacred Heart and you gave your heart to the New Eve, the pure and Immaculate One and she took you to the Heart of your Savior. She took you home and you dwelt within the chamber of My Heart and you were protected from the evil one in these last days. You tried to spread this consecration. It is the key that leads to the place of refuge. So many camps the devil told men to prepare and they labored in vain, for the Word was had in dwelling in Our Hearts. You would find refuge and they missed the message and busied themselves with the work of the evil one.

    I say to you what refuge survived when Noah built his ark? Only those on the ark survived the great flood. You prepare your earth. When My Word was to prepare your hearts. Then again, they worshipped the church building, the grounds and the wood and their hearts were left as cold vaults. I beg you, My beauteous ones, to beg the men to prepare their hearts before it is too late. Only the Ark of the Covenant will be the means of survival in this dark age. When the moon turns to blood they will run away frightened and their buildings will be like cold vaults - only the hearts consecrated to Our Hearts will survive.

    You were willful and too busy to know the story. The story is this: There is but one home; it is the Heart of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. My Mother is the gatekeeper. It is through her Immaculate Heart you enter. She is the singular vessel, a New Eve, a Woman Clothed as the Sun, a doorway to the everlasting abyss of Light, the Light of the World, the Sacred Eucharistic Heart of the Son of Man.

    There was not room for Me in the Inn and there is not room for Me in the hearts of many and what can I say - they will die. I gave them the book of life. I gave them the Man who hung on a tree to save them. I gave them Myself, truly present in the Eucharist, the Eucharist and My Word I gave them. I gave to them My Mother - the way to enter into My Heart and they were haughty and proud. I was born in a stable in Bethlehem for you, My men. I am the Light of the World. The foolish virgins had no oil for their lamps and they went out. And you could hear the wailing cries of her children being slaughtered in the dark night. Oh, the Lady Clothed as the Sun warned them to come to her heart and the Heart of her Son (the Light of the World) and they went to the molten calf and they died a brutal death.

                Jesus: The sins of the human race are sky high
                    I paid the price for your sins —
                    I cry out to listen — to pray these prayers —
                        to spread these writings —

                    To circulate the Tell My People
                    messages given to Fr. Carter

                    To spread the consecration to schools and
                        Churches and families — the whole
                        earth —

                    You refuse My requests — ignore
                        My messages and the visions
                        of Mary your Mother crying
                        for reparation and peace
                        I cry blood — for I died for
                        you My souls and
                        who will even listen and help Me
                        You ignore Me

Words of Jesus to Members of
Shepherds of Christ Associates:

"My beloved priest-companion, I intend to use the priestly newsletter, Shepherds of Christ, and the movement, Shepherds of Christ Associates, in a powerful way for the renewal of My Church and the world.

"I will use the newsletter and the chapters of Shepherds of Christ Associates as a powerful instrument for spreading devotion to My Heart and My Mother's Heart.

"I am calling many to become members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. To all of them I will give great blessings. I will use them as instruments to help bring about the triumph of the Immaculate Heart and the reign of My Sacred Heart. I will give great graces to the members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. I will call them to be deeply united to My Heart and to Mary's Heart as I lead them ever closer to My Father in the Holy Spirit."

- Message from Jesus to Father Edward J. Carter, S.J., Founder, as given on July 31, 1994,
feast of Saint Ignatius Loyola, Founder of the Society of Jesus (The Jesuits)
