                God is all good.

                God created the earth out of love —

                God created man in His image and likeness

                Man has a responsibility to serve God —
                    love God — love each other.

                Man sins — he hurts his relationship with
                    God when he doesn't love God —
                  - when he is jealous, angry, envious,
                    seeking power over his fellow men —
                  - when he is lustful — greedy — bitter —
                    punishing toward others

                It is important for us to recognize our
                    covenant with God — to love God —
                    to honor God — to serve God

                God loves His creatures
                    Jesus came and died for us

                They jailed the Fatima children
                They kicked me out of the Holy Spirit Center
                    3 times.
 

                Creation bears the handprint of God —

                        23. FIRST PRINCIPLE AND FOUNDATION

                            Man is created to praise, reverence and serve God 
                        our Lord, and by this means to save his soul.

 

                We see the vision of God in creation
                We see humanity
                We see the world He gave us.

                God created the world out of nothing

 

Given October 11, 2008

                    God's ways are not our ways.

                    God is omnipotent.

                    God is love.

                    God has no limits.

                    God created the birds, the bugs, from nothing.

                    God can give a miracle — in an instant
                        someone is healed.

                    We see with eyes of men

                    Imperfect eyes —

                    Jealous eyes

                    The child that is born to mom and dad is much
                        more God's child than their own.

                        God gives the soul that gives life to
                        the infant.

                I touched You God and I embraced Your oneness
                    within me. I knew God — My heart was
                    filled with such awe and to speak of knowing
                    this oneness in me — I knew the Father, the
                    Son and the
Holy Ghost.

                I knew Mary in my heart and the oneness I know
                    of God and the love of each Person is because
                    I know God from Mary's Immaculate Heart.

                    Do I think about it — no, when God acts
                on my soul He wraps me in His heavenly
                embrace and I know God's presence so
                deeply within me.

                    God is the initiator, I am the soul waiting
                His favors — Oh God how truly I long for this
                embrace of deeper knowing Your presence.

                    It is love — deep love I have for God that I
                have surrendered myself and He embraces me —
                letting me know His presence so deep in me —

                    Being aware in rosaries, in suffering,
                in ecstasies — the embrace of the Almighty
                God.

                    Knowing that place in me — The place I
                know where the Trinity is deep in me —
                a place — yes — a place I know so deep that
                extends beyond our comprehension — knowing
                His life in me — Knowing deeply as in the
                deep love where He lets me know more and
                more about the reality of this mystery — of
                God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit in me —

                    Oh God I touched You and in that embrace
                I knew more the glories of heaven — a
                scratching of the surface of that everlasting
                bliss of life forever with God in heaven.

 

Acts 15: 16-17

that I shall return and rebuild the fallen hut of David; I shall make good the gaps in it and restore it. Then the rest of humanity, and of all the nations once called mine, will look for the Lord, says the Lord who made this

 

Romans 8: 38

For I am certain of this: neither death nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nothing already in existence and nothing still to come, nor any power,

 

Ephesians 3: 18

with all God’s holy people you will have the strength to grasp the breadth and the length, the height and the depth;

   

                Sing: Eyes Has Not Seen

 

Galatians 5: 22

On the other hand the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, trustfulness,

 

Exodus 3: 13-14

Moses then said to God, 'Look, if I go to the Israelites and say to them, "The God of your ancestors has sent me to you," and they say to me, "What is his name?" what am I to tell them?' God said to Moses, 'I am he who is.' And he said, 'This is what you are to say to the Israelites, "I am has sent me to you."'

 

1 Corinthians 2: 11

After all, is there anyone who knows the qualities of anyone except his own spirit, within him; and in the same way, nobody knows the qualities of God except the Spirit of God.

 

Romans 11: 33

How rich and deep are the wisdom and the knowledge of God! We cannot reach to the root of his decisions or his ways.

    

                When night came they were like children
                    playing — they were not ready to rest
                    for the day of light — they caroused
                    and having done so — they traded
                    the morning of light - for a game
                    of carousing dark streets —

                Why when the day would bring its dew —
                    freshness and vision — did they crawl
                    into the hole of stale beer —

                Oh Lady of Light —
                    No one knows your light and beauty —
                        I am one scorned for the gifts I
                        have given —

                    The thanks are few and far between —
                        the criticism enormous and yet
                        I speak of things not given in the
                        books —

                    But the secrets of the Hearts of Jesus
                        and Mary

                    Jesus said — To one who has been given
                        so much, much is expected.

                    The teaching of praying is for these days
                        where we need mightily God's grace and
                        yet no plague can move the few
                        who test while the Blessed Mother
                        appears —

                    If she doesn't appear to them, they reason
                        they will be jealous and block
                        the purpose for the important reason
                        Mary appears —

                    Who would do this —

                    Not a friend of the Queen of Peace
                    Not a friend of the souls Jesus died
                        for, or the children aborted —

                        Oh sunny days —
                        Days of delight

                        Days of the Eucharist
                        Going to Mass

                        Flowers so pretty
                        Children so small —

                They see none of these things for satan
                    has shaded their eyes —
                    they lay locked in a clumsy way
                        to even unite in their hearts and

                    Yet our very lives are to be lived for
                        this
                    So they anguish because of their
                        own man-made tourniquet —

                Angry at others now because they fail
                    to choose love

                When they can let go and let God fill their
                    hearts like He speaks of in
                    Blue Book 5

  

 

                    We are the Spouse of Jesus —

                They become mad at others because
                    they can't love and they were
                    created for this —
                    commanded to love

 

October 12, 2008 continued

                God gave us dignity

                We are the creation of God

                He is the Creator

                God has a purpose

                Man is a creature

                Out of love God gives man a free will
 

                People learn to live in love with
                    each other.

                From the first moment of conception
                    man has a wounded human nature
                    because of the sin of Adam and Eve

                All was created by God for purpose
                    and meaning.

                            Man is created to praise, reverence and serve God 
                        our Lord, and by this means to save his soul.

   

                    Creation is not by chance

                    We see the beauty of creation

                    The symmetry of the universe

                    The balance in nature —

                God creates light

                    "Let there be light"

                and there was light

                God calls and
                then there is a response

                God calls us —

                Response to God's Love is Fr. Carter's book

                Call — Response

                This response is an act of the will —
                    It should be done to love and serve
                    God and done in love.

                In the Movement God has asked through,
                    me — to do things to help bring about
                    the completion of the Fatima message

                God calls —

                the response of man is —
                        YES LORD             

                God works this way

                    CALL

                    RESPONSE

                Fr. Carter wrote

                    Response to God's Love

                    Mary called through Lucia —
                        on the 13ths

                They jailed the children on August 13
                    despite Mary's call

                When Jesus called at the Holy Spirit Center and
                    Mary appeared —
                    they threw me out 3 times
                    because of Mary's visits

                When Mary appeared in China —
                    how did you respond

                    CALL

                    RESPONSE —

                When Mary called at Clearwater —
                    how did you respond —

                    lovingly
                    willingly
                    helping her do as she wanted

                CALL God commanded — "Let there be light"

                RESPONSE  Response and there was light

                    "CALL"   "RESPONSE"

 

 

                Man has a free will

           

 

 

                    Religious are called by God to be a witness
                living in holiness in their vocation —

                Strengthening the Church in their Response
                    to God's love —

                As members of the body of Christ all are
                    living their vocation helping to
                    strengthen the body of Christ and the world
                    Responding according to God's will
                    in love

                Living according to God's will means
                    having happiness in our lives

                Shepherd me, Oh God, from death
                    into life

                    God calls us to His banquet

                    "Many are called, but few are chosen"

                    God is love and peace —

                    A wedding feast

                    God calls us to the Feast —

                INVITATION

                CALL and RESPONSE

   

Isaiah 25: 6-10a  

On this mountain, for all peoples, 
Yahweh Sabaoth is preparing 
a banquet of rich food, 
    a banquet of fine wines, 
of succulent food, of well–strained wines. 
On this mountain, he has destroyed 
the veil which used to veil all peoples, 
the pall enveloping all nations; 
he has destroyed death for ever. 
Lord Yahweh has wiped away the tears 
    from every cheek; 
he has taken his people’s shame away 
    everywhere on earth, 
for Yahweh has spoken. 

And on that day, it will be said, 
‘Look, this is our God, 
in him we put our hope 
    that he should save us, 
this is Yahweh, we put our hope in him. 
Let us exult and rejoice 
    since he has saved us.’ 
For Yahweh’s hand will rest 
    on this mountain, 

    

Matthew 22: 1-14

Jesus began to speak to them in parables once again, ‘The kingdom of Heaven may be compared to a king who gave a feast for his son’s wedding. He sent his servants to call those who had been invited, but they would not come. Next he sent some more servants with the words, "Tell those who have been invited: Look, my banquet is all prepared, my oxen and fattened cattle have been slaughtered, everything is ready. Come to the wedding." But they were not interested: one went off to his farm, another to his business, and the rest seized his servants, maltreated them and killed them. The king was furious. He despatched his troops, destroyed those murderers and burnt their town. Then he said to his servants, "The wedding is ready; but as those who were invited proved to be unworthy, go to the main crossroads and invite everyone you can find to come to the wedding." So these servants went out onto the roads and collected together everyone they could find, bad and good alike; and the wedding hall was filled with guests. When the king came in to look at the guests he noticed one man who was not wearing a wedding garment, and said to him, "How did you get in here, my friend, without a wedding garment?" And the man was silent. Then the king said to the attendants, "Bind him hand and foot and throw him into the darkness outside, where there will be weeping and grinding of teeth." For many are invited but not all are chosen.’
 

 

                Jesus Blue Book is an invitation to come to the Feast!!

                Everyone is invited

                We have a free will

                Stubborn

                Stiff-necked

                Response to God's Love

                Come to the Banquet

                Some disobey God — sin mortally and
                    go to hell

                It is a call

                It is a response

                God gives us a free will to love or
                    to choose the way of the evil one —

 

Matthew 6: 24

‘No one can be the slave of two masters: he will either hate the first and love the second, or be attached to the first and despise the second...

 


 

  

                    Since we disobeyed God
                Mary came at Fatima, at
                Clearwater telling us to quit disobeying
                God —

 

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)


NOTE:

17. For background material on Fatima, I am particularly indebted to 
    Our Lady of Fatima's Peace Plan from Heaven
(Rockford: TAN 
    Books and Publishers, Inc., 1983). p.7.
 


                Mary appears at Clearwater — you
                    are offending God —
                    1) spread consecration
                    2) go to Mass
                    3) pray rosary
                    4) prayer chapters
                    5) priestly newsletter

                   
                Jesus: God the Father sent Mary as a
                    messenger at Clearwater —

                Mary: The message I deliver is for
                    the peace of the world —

                    You ignore me

                    You do not believe my apparition
                        and the apparitions of Jesus —

                    This is major to the completion
                        of the Fatima message

                R. There is a scripture of children playing —
                    I watch adults who are religious
                    give into their demands to be
                    heard when they are being jealous and
                    mad — being jealous and mad is not
                    to be tolerated by religious demanding
                    to be heard — you are to work in
                    love — building the Kingdom for the
                    honor and glory of God — People are
                    to be grateful for gifts of others —
                    — grateful for love and unity.

                    A certain person — provoked and
                divided caused disunity in a
                community — then they went to the
                other side being united against the
                leader —

                Jesus: Be of a pure heart — Be as Mary
                    teaches you — There was no guile in
                    Mary — I am your God — I invite
                    you to the banquet of My love
                    I give you My Divine love —
                    You are My spouse —

                    Children at age 2 come crying to mom
                    and dad — they feel hurt — they want
                    needed love —

                    People wounded in youth where they
                    didn't get that love when little —
                    if they try to love in an intimate
                    relationship later — often are like
                    this woman —

                A story

                Mary Lou's mom was not loving and she
                    didn't give Cindy when age 2
                    needed love — Cindy has clothes and
                    monetary things — mom was not a tender
                    heart —

                    So Cindy suffered because little
                children need love — when ever Cindy
                got close to others she expected them
                to make up for what mom didn't
                do. Cindy would even play games
                of cruel things — thinking they would
                run and return love to her —

                    People get married to give love
                to each other — Cindy thought she
                would get it for herself and she hurt
                the intimate other — like her mom did —
                and expected the intimate other to come
                with open arms and love her —

                    A person as an adult provoking others —
                holding out — needs to learn this is not a
                way to have a loving relationship —
                Love gives — they are acting like the
                wounded child of the past — playing
                a game like a hurt child.

                    There can be an adult in us — a
                brain surgeon — one who acts with people
                on a level at work —

                    But another level is intimacy —
                The wounded child has no place in
                loving relationships — That child needs
                to be healed and they need to recognize —
                Only God can fill us and we all have
                this longing for the completeness
                we will have in heaven — Lots of tears
                can he shed — not having love — but we
                do — the Blue books tell us God's
                Plan — only God can fill us and we
                won't be filled until heaven —
                no matter how much we cry —
                adults in love are to grow in
                mature love relationships —

                    Little children of the past in
                religious orders that demand to be
                satisfied in that relationship of love
                given by superiors or people
                in the community have missed the
                big lesson of the Blue Books —

                Song: God's Love

Take Shelter from the Rain in My Heart

(Messenger: I saw a vision in my heart of a little wet child standing by a tree in the storm in a dark night. Just a little light, enough to see the child.)

Jesus: You are this little child. You are in the storm. The wind and the rain are beating down on you. You are cold. You are wet, as wet as you can be. You stand by a tree and the wind beats against you and the rain pounds harder.

    My child, My child, there is such shelter in My most Sacred Heart. Come into My Heart, child. You will be protected from the wind that blows so hard on you. You will be out of the rain. It may pound down all around you, but your refuge is found in My Heart. My Heart is a burning furnace of love. See yourself, little child, stand by the tree and whimper and you want to go it alone? Let My Mother lead you by the hand. You, little child, come with Mary, your Mother. Let her take you to the shelter of My Heart.

John 14:6

I am the Way; I am Truth and Life....

    There is not life without Me. My life I give to you that you will have life and have it abundantly. Today I give you My very own Heart on fire for love of you. Come to Me through Mary's pure and tender Heart. We will shelter you in the darkest storm.

Messenger: When I am filled up with Your love, Lord, I do not whimper as a little child. I am filled with love and peace and joy. Take me, Mary, to the Heart of your very dear Son and place me there forever in a little pocket surrounded by His ardent love. I want to be lost deeply in the recesses of this Heart. How deep do you place me in His Heart? I want to be surrounded by the immense love of Father, Son and Holy Spirit and know, Mary, you are so closely united in this Heart!

    This is the comfort in the dark, windy, wet night. This is my refuge. This is my life. This is the closest I can come to heaven on earth - to be united in such love with the Trinity and Mary!

    Help me to let go of it all and come as a little child, running from the rain to the warmest shelter. A roaring fire, warmth, dry clothes and light - the light radiated by the Heart of Jesus. In the darkness I find my light in You. Alleluia. Praise God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Love to my beloved Mother. This is bliss.

                Song: I Am Your Sacred Heart

                Jesus showed us love

                Jesus looked to the Father —

                At the Baptism of Jesus
                    we see the Holy Spirit and hear
                    the voice of the Father —

                    Did you ever look at the Fatima
                story and think how wonderful it was
                for these children to see Mary —

                    I have seen her

                    Mary appeared in Clearwater

Mary by day
July 5, 2000

by night
July 5, 2000

  

                God the Father sent Mary a messenger
                    to deliver this message —

                Should the jailed children at Fatima
                    change the story to please the jailor,
                    police —

                    They made little children go to
                jail — Jacinta got lice

                    The devil doesn't want this
                message out.

                    God has allowed us to send well
                over 6,000,000 Priestly Newsletters to
                hierarchy and priests in 14 years

                    When Mary appeared at Clearwater
                Mary's image head was broken.

                    The devil wants us to ignore the
                Mighty Medicine — the Blue Books — letters
                of love from Jesus talking about the
                Eucharist —

                    The fury of one scorned in love —
                knows bitterness, anger — only God
                can heal the hearts — ripped apart
                by the betrayal of a loved one —
                Staying in a state of cancer —
                wounding others — will not stand still —
                Love wounds must be healed and let go of
                Children are beautiful when born, but
                they are God's children — for His purpose —
                they grow up — they leave — they are
                to live lives and touch others —

                    We grow old
                    We die —

                    We will then have an eternal reward
                in heaven — the eternal banquet we
                were created for — if we love and serve the
                Lord

                    Love is the answer
                    God first loved us

                    It is our response to God with
                        our free will —

                    Love wounds from childhood need to be
                healed and let go of —

                Every act of jealousy
                                anger
                                lust
                                greed —
                                seeking dominance for dominance
                                    sake

                    Opens a door to misery —
                    It blocks God's will

                    The devil moves in with fallacious
                        reasoning

                We become enslaved to the devil —
                    not free —

                We become miserable —

                We feel it right away —

                Trying to control things to block
                    someone because of jealousy —
                    to stop doing what we are
                        supposed to because of jealousy —
                    We change our plans - because of jealousy —
                    We try to control others — because of jealousy
                    We disconnect with thinking of
                        God's will
                    We put on tainted - jealous vision not
                                                God's holy will for us in love.

                We can think of 2 adults getting married

                marriage    2 adults
                                2 little children of the past
                                    getting married in
                                    every marriage

                Now when children come —
                    mom has to give her body
                    dad and mom have a big lesson on
                        self-less love


                Intimate relationships are tough — it
                    takes putting God first —
                    it takes not letting the little hurt child
                        of the past to come out and rage


                If people marry and they try these games —
                    1) I will rage when I feel bad
                    2) I will pout because I want love and
                            I want it now
                    3) jealousy
                    4) lying

                                    .  .  .  .  .  . 

                Lots of things are learned in marriage —
                    they must both grow to be more
                    perfect —
                    little "kids" from the past can't
                        come out and rule

                    women having cycles can't rage
                        or throw fits — they work
                        with their emotions — or
                        the man might leave

                Religious with few relationships
                    can demand their way —
                    what about an angry child of the
                        past —
                    no wife or husband to check them
                    what about a lover scorned


                The Blue Books help us heal

                Religious have God in a special way
                    as their Spouse, but never will
                    we get our love satisfied on
                    this earth —

                If we settle for people filling us when
                    called to the religious life —
                    nobody can fill the love of the Divine God —

                A man had a quarter in his hand at
                    age 4 —
                    at age 44 he still had a quarter —

                He fought his whole life to save
                    his quarter —

                He saw love as a limited, peon
                    amount and he fought for his
                    love of his quarter

                Sally Jo had bags and bags of fortune —
                    not wounds heaped upon wounds
                    because she never let go of
                    her quarter

                Life changes — God picked the time we
                    were created — our work has a
                    certain span —
                    being a baby for me was 1946 —
                    when I was 5 my mom died —

                I learned I had to let her go — it
                    was a hidden wound I carried —
                    it blocked some of my heart,
                    my memory, I let go and then I
                    could be free to live now

                Later I received the vision of the
                    Sacred Heart

                I could remember how to spell a
                    word — God guards our minds if
                    we are close to Him
                    and gives us gifts to share
                    His love with others —

             
               If I didn't look at my mom's death
                    and let go I wouldn't have had
                    so big a heart to receive Jesus'
                    Blue Books

                Old wounds are like a leaky roof —
                    Every time it rains water comes
                        in and it gets really worse

                    It needs repair

                When satan presses on us — jealousy, pride,
                    anger — the old roof starts to leak and
                    oh what a mess

                Sometimes it takes weeks, months, years
                    to get over the mess —

                But living with a clogged
                    wounded heart
                    is the pits

                The roof leaks most of our life

                and when we get lonely we strike
                    out big time on an innocent other
                    because
                    We ourselves have chosen
                        not to love and we are going
                        against why we were
                        created

                Babies cry when they want love

                Adults can have all kinds of
                    sick games for affection —
                    punishing and

                If they are married the person sometimes
                    has to do something because
                    their life is lived around the
                    other's co-dependent punishment

                If kids are involved and

                Divorces occur

                Bad habits of relating — not
                    being nice —
                    go on and on — until somebody
                        stops it and looks at their
                        hate anger —

                    old spray cans of anger can
                        come from angry parents —

                    they go into the world —
                        selfishness
                        lust —
                        greed —
                        taught to children
                        begging for love

October 5, 1992 - 3:30am

Messenger:  Dear Jesus, Give me Your hand to write this book for you. I am your servant. I want to be Your hand to this world. If you, Lord Jesus, would write a book, what would you say?

Jesus:   My dear children,

   Today I come to deliver a message to each of you. I want to tell you of each person's dignity, of their beauty and their self-worth. Each child is, oh, so uniquely precious to My Most Sacred Heart. Each child is full of the talents I have given to them. Each person is divinely created by God and given all these gifts to be happy and love one another.

   The problem comes when you feel you will be left out. That you will be left by another who has trodden on you and will do it again. I see you all as My most precious children. I watch your every move and know all pain and anguish in your heart. My Heart aches, you have insecure feelings about yourself. I came to this earth I died for you. I felt cold, hungry, lonely on this earth. You need not worry that no one knows the pain and anguish in your heart. God created you with such special gifts and talents. It is important for you to raise above your wound and forgive those who hurt you.

   You need only turn your will and your life over to Me and I will guide you in all your ways. I have all the Power. Many are not of My ways. The key to life is to recognize your faults, but still know you are this precious gift of My Father a gift to this world. This world is in need of your strength. Running yourself down, blaming others hurting them can cause you misery and pain. At this very moment, you are the precious creation of God!! You must operate with Me in your heart.

   You need not run yourself down. I am with you every day guiding your ways, lest your foot stumble and you lose your way. You will not wander far from your path if every day you keep bringing your focus back to Me. If you dare let Me be at the helm, if you dare to really let Me run your life, I will do with you such wonders that you yourself would be amazed. But you will know with such ease when you did these things that you did not do them alone. You will know My power, moving the mountain, My power chipping at the stone, My power working on your hardest problem and you will be set free.

   Oh yes, you will be set free and know a serenity that only comes from letting go and letting Me run your life. To you, My child, I have given all that is good. I made you My holy soldier, My warrior in a world of pain and hatred. You are the light that shines in the darkness, you are the coat to a cold child, you are the smile that warms a troubled and lonely heart. You are the comfort for everyone you meet, because My most precious Heart powers you, smiles through you, understands and loves through you.

   Love your fellows for Me. There are so many troubled hearts that need to know My love. I can love through you if you let Me, I can be their friend through you if you let Me. I am He who comforts you and you are he who comforts them. My power is endless, it never runs out, there is not a power failure EVER. In your darkest hour, My light shines in the darkness and I say to you, "Oh blessed of My Father, look at yourself with awe, you are My creation, you are indeed so precious to Me, you are My light to this world, you are My hands and My feet and most of all My Heart."

   Oh, you are My loving Heart, to those who are bowed down, to those who are lost in the darkness, you carry My smile and wear My armor in a world that is trying to tear one another down with hate and ugliness. There is gentleness, there is love, there is hope in you, if you open yourself up to Me. Be My knight to the world, wear My armor. I am your God and I will protect you from the darkness. Plug into My power, be not afraid, I go before you always and you can rest in My arms when you feel weary. You can put your head in My lap and weep, you will know, I am truly with you and you are My light to this world. I created you so special - to cast out fear in the darkness, to clothe the naked, to give hope to the oppressed, to be as I live in you and love through you and you are My smile and I touch My hurting ones through your love.

   You are he who loves this world. You must stay plugged into My power-source. This world is hungry for My love. It needs My love, I give to them through you. I am your God and I made you as a gift to the world. You are filled.

    Focus on Me and your life will be abundant and whole, joy in suffering, freedom -- but  you can take the knocks because you will know you do not go it alone, but with Me. I love you My precious child.

                If you are a person who never
                    worked on yourself in intimate relationships
                    and think you are perfect —
                    You have a lot of work to catch
                        up on

                Our lives are lived
                    to have relationships
                    love God
                    love one another

                "Oh I live with myself and I want the
                    world like me —

Pray For The Success Of The Priestly Newsletter - Shepherds of Christ

Messenger: The following is the first official message I received before the statue of Mary at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center. It is a personal message for Father Carter.

Mary: (in front of the glowing statue of Our Lady of Sorrows) I am the Immaculate Heart. My Heart is glowing for love of all my beloved children. I am your most loving Mother. I am with you this day. Pray for the success of the priestly newsletter Shepherds of Christ. I am guarding your way. You will receive such graces to accomplish this task! Grace from God is so abundantly bestowed on you and will lead to the success of this endeavor! Pray for this cause at the Center. The priests will lead the people to the love of My beloved Son. This is no little task. It will take many prayers and graces. Pray hard, little one. Your prayers will change many hearts.

I am Mary, your Immaculate Mother. I bring this message to My beloved priest-son.

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."

                The children of Fatima were
                    shown a vision and hell and
                    Mary said if we didn't obey
                    her message there would be World War II

 

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)

                Mary said if the War (World War I) is going to end
                    if people did not cease offending God a
                    worse war would break out —
                    she spoke of the unknown light —
                        how God would punish the war —

                She keeps saying — if we DO NOT
                    STOP offending God

                This is why Mary appeared to me —
                    to tell us to stop offending God —
                    and make reparation

                Mary appeared here in China
                    April 13, 2008 and told us
                    to stop it —

                Mary appeared December 12, 2007 in
                    China


                Mary promised the miracle at Fatima
                    October 13, 1917 —

                The children gave up lunches —
                    sacrificed because of what
                    Mary said —

                August 13, 1917 — the children jailed —
                    prisoners — threatened with torture
                    and death if they did not say
                    their story was a hoax

                They would not admit their visitations
                    were a hoax

                They cried, screamed

                Big men threatening little children —

                The children's story does not
                    change — they will not lie —

                The symbol of authority question
                    the children — they hold firm —

                I held firm at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center —
                    I was kicked out

                Mary appeared at Clearwater 7 1/2 years —

                Mary appeared in China, Indiana
                    April 13, 2008
                    December 12, 2007

                How were you?

                Children 7, 8 and 10

                Jacinta is removed from the room —
                    Lucia and Francesco are told
                    she is being boiled in oil —

                The police demands the children
                    confess —

                Although terrified their stories
                    still do not change

                Francesco taken from room —

                Lucia is demanded of by officer
                    to tell him what he wants
                    to hear —

                She won't lie —

                She then is showed Jacinta and
                    Francesco alive —

                    her cousins alive —

                The 3 are put in a cell with other
                    prisoners —

                August 15, 1917 — the jailor released
                    them to their parents
                    4 days later

                Mary appears to them August 19, 1917 —
                    they brought a small grape
                    vine from the feet of Our Lady

 

Excerpt from the rosary of August 19, 1997

Jesus: Come away with Me, My young ones. Come into the field and taste of the beauty of the air and the beauty of this day with the most beautiful flowers that I have created for you. Do you see the beauty in each petal of the flower, or are your eyes covered with mud that you do not see? I have lifted the veil for you today and I have showed you My way. My way is the way of trust and faith and I told you in the message on Sunday that you must have faith and endurance, for I took you to the darkest night to the pointiest tunnel, to the place where you thought that you would never return and at that point I opened up through a little hole the light of day and it came streaming in and you perceived and you felt My presence, which is greater than all the things of this earth.

    Wipe the grin off your face you silly earth, for you have ran after so many foolish things, when I stood there adorned in white before you, in the most glorious robes and you did not perceive that the Almighty God was alive and so I have called and I have told you and I have allowed you, My shepherds, to suffer, but the days ahead will be days of great victory, for I come to you clothed in white and adorned in a gold veil and you see that God lives and you will carry the white flag across this earth. You My shepherds, have won and the victory is yours.

    Did you fall in the mud and did you skin your knees, did you feel your head ache as Mine ached in the garden, did you feel the thorns poke deeply into your skull, and did you feel the ripping of your flesh as the sword went into your skin?

    I am Jesus, I am God, I will not be undone. I am Almighty and all powerful to the ends of the earth. You will know My might and you will not be afraid, but you will not know this if you do not trust, for I have told you the secrets in My messages, but you do not read as if you believe, you read half heartedly. You must believe with all your heart that I speak to you to be heard, for you truly are the shepherds that will go across this earth and carry the white flag, but you do not have this conviction within your heart, so therefore you do not do all that I have asked you to do, your belief is wishy-washy and you do not believe with a conviction of a strong heart.

    I am calling you My shepherds this night to renew your faith and your endurance to realize that I am God and I have spoken here to you this evening. I am alive, I am alive, I am alive and I am with you, I am your God.

    You wanted the light all the time and the light was not in the plan of the Father. It comes in light and it comes in darkness, it comes in death and it comes in victory, it comes in death and it comes in Resurrection, it comes in pain, and it comes in joy, but this world tells you today to look for only the joy and when you do not find it to do everything that you can to fill your selfish pleasurish whims that you have within you.

    I tell you that you must fall to your knees, that your knees will be scuffed and that you will suffer and your flesh will be torn and your head will be crowned with thorns, but you will come forth from the tomb with a veil of white across your face and you will say this is the victory that we have won because we have lived in Him.

Your Movement will spread forth to the far ends of the earth, but it is faith that I am calling you to My beloved ones, you must have faith in your hearts, for this is a sign that I give to you this day. If you do not believe, you will not be able to continue ahead, for you must move ahead in faith. It is the only way that you must operate. You cannot operate trying to logically think your way across this world. It is only in believing and obeying the messages that the job will get done. It is My might that will lead this Movement to the far corners of the earth. Open your pockets and let us see your money. Do you have the money to do the things that I have asked you to do? It is in prayer, hourly prayer and begging for the funds, realizing that it is in your prayer, that it is in your endurance, that it is in your faith and your sacrifices that your prayers will be answered. You must pray hourly the Novena to the Infant of Prague and I will answer your prayers, and you My beloved ones will know the results when you pray.

Jesus: I have given to you the greatest gift this day. I am Jesus, and I have come to you and I have asked you to open wide your heart and to thank Me for the gift I have given, for if the answer would have been different how would your hearts be this night, and how was it with the lepers, when I gave to them the great gift and they did not come and say thanks, but you are My holy ones that I am sending into this world and your hearts must be filled with joy. I have asked you over and over again to sing to Me with a heart that is filled with joy. I have given to you songs that I wrote Myself for you to sing of the love of My Heart. I am Jesus, the Son of God and you are the apostles of this new era. As you go out into the dark night the light will shine behind you and many will know the light of My Heart. Do not be discouraged, for the very hairs of your head are numbered and I am with you at this very moment, guarding and watching you, give Me your heart My shepherds. I have given to you a great gift this day, give Me your thanks and continue to pray. It is through prayer that you will accomplish all that the Father intends you to accomplish.

    I am Jesus, the Son of God. I have chosen you, I have called you and you will accomplish the work that the Father intends you to through prayer. Do not be discouraged, but encouraged for I am God and I am with you. Think of how it was before, when you did not share your love with so many others, but I have given you each other and I have bound your hearts in one heart and you come here because your hearts are filled with great joy. The more you love and the more the Movement spreads, the more will be the blessings, for as the love expounds and gets larger, the love is more full, for your love is rooted in Me and the more you love deeply the more full the love you will have. This is how it will be, one body in Me, and you will love many and you will know them deeply in your heart and your heart is full My shepherds, because I have taught you My ways of love and given you each other. You are My holy family and I love you. I have called you and so you say “why me?”, and I say to you “why this Saint, or that Saint or why the Blessed Mother, why were you called?”. You were called because I love you and I have given to you a great grace to be My shepherd in the Shepherds of Christ Movement.

                    tried to turn people away
                    from the apparition said the devil
                    could be doing it to destroy the Church —

                Coins were collected that people left —

                Mary said for the Church —

                Mary: Where is your faith my children —
                    my Immaculate Heart is
                    bleeding and you do not believe —
                    It is your lack of faith and
                    your disobedience that offend
                    Jesus —

                You do not make reparation for
                    your own sins — lest
                    you tell people the
                    message I deliver here —

                    for 91 years I have told you
                    to stop offending Our Lord —
                    to make reparation —

                You ignored my visits at Clearwater
                    and here (China, Indiana) when I came
                    December 12 and April 13 —

                You have gotten further and further from
                    the Blue Book message yourselves —

                Where is your faith —

                You lack faith — so how
                    can you spread my message to
                    the world —

                The Battle World War II had many casualties —
                    But your country is on the verge
                    of suffering you cannot imagine
                    if you don't choose life.

                I am Mary your Mother

                Jesus:

                Choose life that you may live.

                God is life

                God is love

                God is truth

                You must obey the Commandments.
