John 19: 25-27

Near the cross of Jesus stood his mother and his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary of Magdala. Seeing his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing near her, Jesus said to his mother, ‘Woman, this is your son.’ Then to the disciple he said, ‘This is your mother.’ And from that hour the disciple took her into his home.

Messenger:          Into thy hands I commend
                                my Spirit.

                     Oh God, I give You myself
                        everything — my days,
                        my nights, my heart —

                    Open up my heart

                    We are sinners waiting for
                        His forgiveness and His grace

                     Into Thy hands I commend my spirit.

                     Water is given to cleanse us.

                     Oh Lamb of God forgive our sins.

                     He must increase, I must decrease.

                    The wonders of the earth

                    The gift given the Son of God comes
                        to save a fallen race

                    Oh Mary help me to be more like Jesus

                    Oh Mary help me to be as you were
                        faithful to His Word always.

                    One prayer — oh God let my prayer be a
                        prayer of love — love for God
                        and all men —

                    I wait and I wait, I wait for the Lord and His
— to follow His Plan — to sit
                        still while the world has men who
                        decide and prod and plan, I wait for
                        the Lord,

                    A prophet is never accepted in His own

                        They called Jesus a blasphemer and
                        yet today they blaspheme Jesus —

                    I cry Lord of men to see their blindness

                    I sing of Your Might

                    My heart is a heart of hope

                    I know the apostles and their lives

                    I love the holy saints

                    I know them

                    Their lives are alive in my heart as
                        models of holiness serving the Lord

                    I shriek not to follow the foolish
                        men of this world

                    But my eyes are open

                    My heart full with the love of the Lord

                    I see and love His Word

                    I follow His path

                    I love His law

                    Oh God — Father of our ancestors, have
                    mercy on us poor banished children
                    of Eve —

                    Open our hearts

                    who wants this captivity

                    free us of our wayward ways

                    let us see Your Might in the mustard

                    Oh God — the devil prowls the earth as
                        one to attack Mary's little children.

                    The devil is a devil — indeed —
                        one who tempts —
                        one who wants to trap the poor
                            banished children of Eve —

                    God come fill our hearts
                        let us live in You —

                    Let Your Word be written on our hearts
                    We want it to live deeply in us.

                    Let us not be so focused on the things
                        of this earth
— we become sterile.

                    Oh Jesus to gaze upon Your face is
                        my delight
— let the world know
                        You — Your precious love for us.

                    In the busy day I hear the bird chirp and it
                        reminds me of Your love for us

                        how attentive You are to our
                        needs —

                    Let us fish for men

                    Let their hearts be open

                    Outpour Your grace

                    Many times I fight things, I must surrender

                        You are attentive to all my needs if I
                            but ask.

                    Remember the Sermon on the Mount.

                    It is a time for rejoicing, for God has
                        visited His people

                    We will be held accountable for our lives.

                    God gives to us a feast

                    He feeds us with Himself

                    His love He outpours

                    Pray for grace to be as He desires.

                    Jesus is tender and loving to us.

                    We must go to Him — be wrapped
                        in His arms —

                    God forgives our sins

                    God feeds us.

                    How precious is the holy name of Jesus.

                    He came to the earth and performed
                        miracles and
                        He healed the sick

                        Cured the paralyzed.

                    Do we not see He can heal us
                        lead us into greater perfection
                        rooted in Him.

                    Jesus calls and many say — I have
                        too much to do — go away —
                        go away.

                    And they stumble around and have
                        no peace

                    Peace is found in Him.

                    We see like in a fog.

                    Oh Jesus I know You

                    Heaven is real

                    I am not afraid

                    I am Yours Lord

Jesus speaks:          I have asked you to endure this suffering
                            In the death there is the resurrection.

Messenger:         open up Your gates to me, Lord
                                let me see despite the road blocks

                            Let me see

                            We are hidden behind blockages of our own
— Let us come alive —

Jesus speaks:      Go to confession

Messenger:          Oh God help us to be pure


Revelation 12: 7-12

    And now war broke out in heaven, when Michael & with his angels attacked the dragon. The dragon fought back with his angels, but they were defeated and driven out of heaven. The great dragon, the primeval serpent, known as the devil or Satan, who had led all the world astray, was hurled down to the earth and his angels were hurled down with him. Then I heard a voice shout from heaven, Salvation and power and empire for ever have been won by our God, and all authority for his Christ, now that the accuser, who accused our brothers day and night before our God, has been brought down. 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. So let the heavens rejoice and all who live there; but for you, earth and sea, disaster is coming&because the devil has gone down to you in a rage, knowing that he has little time left.


John 1: 47-51

When Jesus saw Nathanael coming he said of him, ‘There, truly, is an Israelite in whom there is no deception.’ Nathanael asked, ‘How do you know me?’ Jesus replied, ‘Before Philip came to call you, I saw you under the fig tree.’ Nathanael answered, ‘Rabbi, you are the Son of God, you are the king of Israel.’ Jesus replied, ‘You believe that just because I said: I saw you under the fig tree. You are going to see greater things than that.’ And then he added, ‘In all truth I tell you, you will see heaven open and the angels of God ascending and descending over the Son of man.’


Messenger:         One who is dead in sin is trapped
                              as one in a cage



September 29, 2006 message continues

Messenger:             And so we can be stopped dead, we fall,
                            in our tracks, not being able to move right,
                            or left, backward or forward and waiting for
                            a peep hole of light and then magnificence

                            humongous beauty, blue skies, clouds of
                            puffy white — seen streaming through and then
                            a tunnel and the clouds are now — showing but
                            darkened, but I am moving ahead even in
                            the cloudiness —

                        Is not life like this — smoke screens where
                    we can barely see, blue skies, fall days —
                    beautiful waters, being caught in a hard rain —
                    waking again to the fiery
sun over a vast

                        To me the Newsletter is like this
                    the yellow book — I know the gentle love God
                    wishes to spread to the priests through it — the
                    reality of heaven — the greatness of the Church —

                        I see the hearts of priests on fire for love of the
                    Sacred Heart
— I see what Mary said at Fatima —
                    I know the dream of Fr. Carter


September 29, 2006 message continues

Messenger:         I know the faith we must have —

                          I got a fax from a bishop in Tanzania
                        wanting the Newsletter please for all his priests —
                        one from the Vatican yesterday —

                            A tunnel — a blue sky — puffy white clouds —
                        my faith never wavering — president John fervent in this
                        mission — Joe Lee working on addresses — the artist
                        help — the people in China praying — Glaci
                        sending out additional Newsletters — Terry and Tina —
                        people printing the books, prayer chapters,
                        Mary and Jesus working on the money and most
                        of all Fr. John with Jesus' guidance
                        writing the Newsletter —

                            Valleys, hills, sun lit days, clouds —
                                but faith — stepping into the abyss and
                                watching Mary and Jesus help to bring to
                                completion the mission of the Fatima
                                message —


Excerpts from The Spirituality of Fatima

by Father Carter, S.J.

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

    Tell everybody that God gives graces through the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Tell them to ask grace from her, and that the Heart of Jesus wishes to be venerated together with the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Ask them to plead for peace from the Immaculate Heart of Mary, for the Lord has confided the peace of the world to her. (19)
