Excerpt from The Spirituality of Fatima

by Fr. Edward Carter, S.J.   

July 13, 1917

    "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)

                    January 25, 1938 is the night
                        illumined by an unknown
                        light

                    In Europe the sky was said
                        to be like a furnace,
                        aglow with chrisom fire —
                        seen from the North Sea
                        to the Adriatic

                    from night to 2:00
                        in the morning

March 13, 1994 5:45 p.m.

Messenger: I was overtaken by an intense unrest. I was compelled to go to the tabernacle. I felt such suffering, suffering that Jesus suffered so for us and that everyone is so busy about their lives. Suffering for the indifference to Him and how He loves us despite our neglect! It was awful. I felt as I had on Christmas.

Jesus: I am the Lord, thy God. Thou shalt not have any gods before Me. I must be first in your life.

Messenger: If you place any woman, man, children, food, clothing or any other little things above Him, you are not doing His will.

Jesus: I died for you, sweet one. I allow you to suffer. This is suffering. You are given this to know how I suffered. You I only give such little things. I suffered, sweet one. I suffered, bloodied, bruised and beaten. Blood rolled down My cheeks. My head was pierced with sharp thorns. They spat on Me. They whipped Me. They beat Me on My head, My precious head. They hit Me on My thorns and the pain was so intense—the piercing thorns! I was slapped hard by these senseless ones. Oh, such evil in the hearts of those who beat Me, the Son of God!

My whole Body ached from head to toe. I suffered so, My child. You will never know how I suffered for love of you. I am God and I loved all My precious ones to My death—and they ignore Me!

Oh, how I suffer from this wounded heart. They will never know what love I have to give them. They will never know how I, God, love them. They are so busy with their worldly lives!

You must tell them how I wait for them. I wait. I want them to come and I will give them such love! Tell them, Rita, tell them! Your discontent is from what emotions I give you and you keep them inside. I want all to know Me and My love. I am crying out to you, little one. Tell them, tell them. Do not waste any time. I am crying out for you to spread this message. I want you to tell all of My love and how I am waiting. Emotion! Emotion! I am crying out to you in your heart!

I long for their love. I died for them. How do I make them know if you, to whom I speak, hold back? I want you to get the messages out, child.

I loved all My beloved ones to My death. I love you this way this day. I am Jesus. I am begging you to not hold back this emotion.

Oh, child, My beloved ones are blind and are going down the road that leads to nowhere. You must preach My message. You must distribute My letters. You must tell all how I wait here!

Go to My faithful ones. Spread the messages at the Center. Keep them in your car. You will be called on in an instant and I will speak My message to My beloved ones through you.

Ready yourself for a big boom. No one is listening. I am crying out to you. Prepare your brothers. They are in darkness. Their souls are dying inside of them. Some come to Me with such indifference in Communion.

I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I am on fire for love of them. I am Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God. I call you to this state of urgency. Move your friends by this urgent letter. There is no more time to waste. I call you all here to deliver this message personally to you. I am Jesus. I am begging each of you to spread My message. Tell them of My ardent love. In each moment you waste, souls will be lost.

I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I am your God. I am calling to you. Will you listen or will you be numb to My pleading? I yearn for your love. Come and sit with Me every day. Sit in front of My tabernacle so I can give you what you need. Pray the Prayer for Union with Jesus.

I am Jesus, the Son of God. I cry out to you to preach My love. Spread these messages. Tell all you meet that I, Jesus, am alone. I am in your midst and I love you this very day. I wait for you in the tabernacle. Come and be with Me every day. This is all that you need. I give you everything. All will work when you come to Me to get your supplies.

Come to Mass and Communion daily. I wait for you to come and be in union with Me. I want to be so close to you. I love you all and I am asking you each to busy yourself about your love affair with Me. Make Me first in your life. Give Me all you are. Pray My Prayer for Union all through the day.

It is your union with Me that will change this world. You will light the lights of the souls in darkness. They will see the might of God in your soul. Energy will be emitted from your very being. You will be as you are, My most important workers, just in your being, if you surrender and be about our love affair!

It's so simple. Come to Me, be united in Communion, pray with Me in silence after Communion, pray to the Holy Spirit for all of His gifts. Pray, lay hands on each other for strength. I am Jesus. I am alive. I will live in you in such a way that you will do such wonders, just in your being more in love with Me.

I love you all dearly. Open yourselves. Be selfless and let Me possess your soul! I love you. Jesus

Picture of the Sacred Heart of Jesus


Cling to Me

May 3, 1993

Jesus: My dear child, if you stay close to Me, then I live in you and you live in Me. I am He Who created you and I love you with such an intensity that you will never know. My words are your truth. You must abide in My heart in all things. There is no room for doubt. My ways are steadfast, direct, and without error.

    You must stay rooted in Me to ward off the power of the evil one. His grip is paralyzing and crippling. His power is stronger every day.

    When you live in Me, I am in your heart and he has no power over Me. I am your God. I am your true lover. I want to protect you. I want to guard you from this force. Stay rooted firmly in Me and he will have no power.

    I am He Who comforts you. My hand is upon you. Hold tight to Me, My child. My eyes are fixed right on you. You are My most precious child. I love you as no other can. My arms are about you. My tenderness surrounds you. My love is in your heart. You go not alone. I walk with you.

    I share every aspect of your life with you. Cling to Me, feel My presence. It is warm and secure within your chest. There is no room for fear, for I cast out fear and bring you comfort and joy.

Excerpt from the Red Rosary Book

July 5, 1994 6:30 p.m.

I was told to go to Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center to pray the rosary with my children. There were people in the front of the church, so we decided to pray the rosary in the back before the Sorrowful Mother statue. I had the following vision at the end of the rosary.

The statue of the Sorrowful Mother was lit up as if she had fire around her. The light was very bright. Her whole gown was all-white, but the statue's gown is blue and pink. She was all aglow. It looked like the glow that comes off of a fire. Her face kept changing but remained totally sorrowful-the sorrow of an older woman. She was in such pain and sorrow! (It was hard to explain how she looked-extremely pained!) Her face looked as though she was in such pain that she could hardly bear it.

The vision remained like this for about ten minutes, having begun during the last Hail Mary of the Sorrowful Mysteries of the rosary. She was holding something-it was all bright white-the brightest light ever!

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."

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."

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.

                What is the real meaning of life
                    rooted in Him —

                Individuals focused on personal
                    goals — overly focused —
                    their life — their career

                Self pre-occupation

                Focus on career absorbantly

                The absence of God —

 

                How do Catholics view the Blessed
                    Mother — Mother of God —
                    Mother of us — Mother of the Church


                When there is a decline in celibacy, marriage
                    and purity, there is a decline of
                    devotion to the Blessed Mother


                Bishop Sheen says

                    The level of any civilization
                        is the level of its womanhood

                    Elizabeth was considered barren —
                        old —
                        a woman

                    John came forth —

                    John baptized Jesus

                In my age of dealing as a messenger
                    I have 2 strikes against me
                    many would say —

                Disregarding Fr. Carter and I were
                    chosen by God and this
                    Movement and these messages
                    exist only through our obedience
                    to God's messages to both of us —

                Fr. Carter was my spiritual director and
                    head of the movement —
                    I am the co-founder —

                I obeyed Fr. Carter my spiritual director —

                We are here because
                    we obeyed the messages Jesus gave to me and
                    believed the messages came from Jesus —

                Father Carter spent more time defending
                    my messages, discerning
                    my messages than I did —

                He was persecuted by his peers —
                    and few showed up at his funeral
                    after 49 years in the Jesuit
                    life, but he was planning for
                    the future of this Movement
                    when he was dying

                To much that has been given much
                    is expected

                When Mary appeared at Falmouth —
                    they fought —
                    Fr. Carter had to resign from the
                    Holy Spirit Center and Falmouth to do
                    the Priestly Newsletter which was being
                    neglected — its expansion to the foreign
                    countries — they tried to keep him
                    involved in their fighting like a referrer (1995)—

                Today both places are almost
                    empty

                The pope is 82

                I may not know everything about
                    computers, but my gifts given
                    in apparitions and revelations are
                    from God — Fr. Carter and I formed
                    the Movement on these —

                    Are young people more wise because
                of their computer knowledge?

                    Every man who came into the
                world came in a woman, but
                Adam

                God has said to respect your parents
                even when old —

                Many young people today think they
                    have passed the old person because
                    they know computers, and are failing
                    to recognize experience and wisdom in
                    years lived — deeply in God —

                    I love the homilies of my brother —
                God has gifted him — a younger man
                would not have the wisdom of age —
                of Fr. Carter who went before me —

                When one is seeing through jealous
                eyes and acting on such impurities —
                Jesus says they make "mud pies" —

                I heard today

                    mud pies, mud pies, mud pies

                    No matter how many mud pies you
                make you can't eat any — you will
                get sick —

                    Digging up seeds planted by those
                who went before you is foolish when
                they are bearing fruit —

                    God is running this Movement —

                    but I have been His
                    messenger for 17 years —

 

Luke 11: 47-54

'Alas for you because you build tombs for the prophets, the people your ancestors killed! In this way you both witness to what your ancestors did and approve it; they did the killing, you do the building.' And that is why the Wisdom of God said, "I will send them prophets and apostles; some they will slaughter and persecute, so that this generation will have to answer for every prophet's blood that has been shed since the foundation of the world, from the blood of Abel to the blood of Zechariah, who perished between the altar and the Temple." Yes, I tell you, this generation will have to answer for it all.' Alas for you lawyers who have taken away the key of knowledge! You have not gone in yourselves and have prevented others from going in who wanted to.' When he left there, the scribes and the Pharisees began a furious attack on him and tried to force answers from him on innumerable questions, lying in wait to catch him out in something he might say.

 

                    They wanted to kill the
                    messenger - to kill the message —

                What foolishness —

                    The sign was given at Clearwater —

  

  

                Mary delivered an important message
                    to me and Fr. Carter —
                    and I passed it on in the Mary Priestly
                        Newsletter 14 years later —

                    I lived to put out that Newsletter and
                    the Newsletter
                        Fr. Carter told me to put out right
                        after His death —
                        8 years ago —

                A woman is love

                When someone is loving they go out
                    to meet the object loved —

                When a man wants understanding —
                    he may take an abstract thing and
                    lower it to what he understands —

                God is giving the revelations in the
                    Blue Books and is raising us up —
                    in telling in love about the
                    heights of heaven —

                Following these messages will help
                    raise us up

                Those who want to control
                    want to lower the great gifts
                    to mud pies

                Remember man that though art dust and
                    unto dust though shalt return

                    The doors of hell are for those
                who did their own will sinning mortally —

                    taking others in their lives
                    with them —
                    demanding their way —
                    and sinning mortally
                    without telling God they are sorry

                Jesus died on the cross in obedience
                    to the Father —

                Rebellion with your trinkets —
                    oh I am smart —
                    people who are smart know
                    that wisdom comes from God —

                The more you seek your honor and
                    glory — the more you do not
                    have wisdom —

                The doors of heaven are for those
                    who obeyed the will of the
                    Father

                Mud pies, Jesus said today —

                Look at the clay or mud he rubbed
                    in the blind man's eyes

                Look at the dirt with which He
                    formed man

                Jesus: You try to bring Me down to your
                    reasoning —

                I am the initiator

                I am the one enlightening you

                You are the guy with your
                    mud pies, your money,
                    your fear, your control —
                    your honor and glory

                You think the sun rises because
                    you had something to do with
                    it?

                You fly upside down —

                Even the birds fly right —

                Fools — for you seek wisdom in your
                    pride and it is not to be found
                    in you.

                Babies are aborted        Babies are born

                I give you a free will

                Those disobeying the commandments
                    are not free

                    they are enslaved to satan

                Freedom, peace, love, harmony —
                    oneness is found in God

                The prideful man wants to win for his
                    vain glory —

                R. If we love God we have to obey
                    His laws —

                You cannot say you love God
                    and disobey the commandments —

                The Virgin birth

                    1) of Christ —
                        man was tainted
                        all creatures except Mary
                        was marked with original sin —

                    Mary was conceived without sin

                    Mary gives a human nature to Christ
                        and begins the new humanity

                    The Father, Son and Holy Spirit live
                        in the baptized soul.

                    2) the Church

                    From the pierced side of Christ — the
                        Church is born

                How do we love God

                How much have we given our
                    will to God —
                    process of being attuned
                    to the will of God

                The restored man

                Look at Peter

                He was not perfect,

                But God asked for love


                Someone can be a brain surgeon
                    and a poor marriage partner

                Satan sifts us like wheat

                Rebellion

                Jesus: I have prayed for thee.

                R. Jesus prayed for Peter

                Peter fell and fell again


                Popes can be traced back to Peter

                Trust in the prayer of Christ
                    for Peter

                We have human weakness

                We must not fail to pray

   

Matthew 16:18

So I now say to you: you are Peter and on this rock I will build my community. And the gates of the underworld can never overpower it.
