Given October 27, 2007

     

                    Mystery, mystery, mystery —

                    God has revealed Himself to us in
                many ways, but it is our love He seeks.
                One is called to suffering and one learns and
                in that is usually brought to greater life
                in Him — when suffering is endured for
                His holy purpose — when being tested
                is endured in love despite it's pain
                we will usually move to a place of
                knowing Him and His ways more deeply in
                joy.

                    Today I cried deeply to Him for the
                funds to send the Mary Newsletter —
                It is the most beautiful of all writings
                I feel and being so close to Mary because
                of all her visits to me daily — I love her
                so very much and I cry — Oh God thank
                You for Mary — "the singular vessel of
                devotion" — "mystical rose" — my love for
                our heavenly mother is so deep in my
                soul — so one in me and the message
                of her precious souls that are being lost
                is in me and I cannot stand to think of
                a single soul that could be lost. I know
                Mary's emotion written on my soul as
                she appeared and spoke through the
                messages she gave — most of them orally
                in a rosary like this one she and Jesus
                said went with the image in Clearwater.

     

Mary's Message
from the Rosary of August 27, 1996

Mary speaks:  I stood beneath the cross of my Son, and my Heart was in such pain for I saw Him before my eyes. I saw Him covered with blood. I saw Him die. My Heart, my children, my Heart to watch my Son, but my Heart, my Heart, how I suffered for my little children of the world that give in to this world and give up the love of my Son. O my little children of light, I give you this message. Carry this light into the darkness for your Mother Mary, for I stood beneath the cross and I cried. I cried for the little ones. I cried for the young ones, the ones that do not care and will lose their souls. How do I make you see for you will not listen to me? What can I do? I come. I appear. I beg. I plead. I give you these gifts from my Son, and you reject me. I do not deliver messages very often anymore for I have been ignored. The message is the same. You do not read the messages I have given to you. Please help me. Help the little children. I appear. I appear. I appear, and I am ignored. I stood beneath the cross, and I cried. I cried, and my Heart was in such anguish for my little children, for I am searching for them this day as I searched for the Child Jesus. Please, please help me. I cannot hold back the hand of my Son any longer. I am Mary, your Mother. I ask you to help my children. You are my children of light.

end of Mary's Message, August 27, 1996

    

                My heart cries for the words of the popes
                about Mary for I know so deeply in
                my soul every word they speak.

                    I love Mary so very much and when
                her daily visits were over she still appeared
                at Holy Cross-Immaculata — when her
                visits ended there December 5, 1996 He
                appeared on the cross that day instead
                of Mary — In the rosary that night He said —

      

Excerpt from April 4, 2003

Messenger:    I saw Him at the point of death on the cross December 5, 1996, after Mary appeared 500 times.

He hung, all battered, greatly weakened. His mouth moved very clearly. It seems that a man in His condition could not move His mouth to that extent.

Later in the rosary that night, He gave messages and said: "No one was listening."

          

                    I was devastated by Him hanging, the
                body of a man at the point of death and
                His mouth was moving.

                    After 2 and 1/2 years of Mary appearing
                on the 5ths, Jesus appeared at the
                point of death December 5, 1996. Then I was
                told on the Feast of Guadalupe to make
                Mary's Message tape and pass it out
                December 13, 1996 at Tom's Farm. Fr. Carter
                began the prayer and led the rosary and the
                messages given that day in the rosary
                were transcribed from a tape and discerned
                by Fr. Carter. My daughter prepared the
                tape for distribution — it is on tape and
                DVD as Fr. Carter led the rosary — it is
                the actual recording — click here for the
                hard, published, discerned copy —

                November 13, 1996; January 13, 1997;
                February 13, 1997 are available
                on colored published sheets for distribution
                FREE from Florida — they can be kept
                in your purse or pocket — call Kathleen —
                we can send you as many copies as you
                need for your prayer chapter — These rosaries
                were 3 months before Mary appeared at
                Clearwater and 3 months after —
                Mary's image appeared at Clearwater
                12 days after Jesus appeared on the cross
                at Holy Cross-Immaculata by the
                Lourdes grotto where Mary had been
                appearing

From the Mass Book

December 27, 1996

THE MASS AND FATIMA

Can I tell you what it is like, for all eternity, to want God so much and to know you will never have Him? This is the fate of the souls in hell.

I plead and I beg to circulate this book (The Mass Book) that all may fervently love God through the Mass, that His life will flow copiously through the hands of consecrated priests.

This is the center of it all: holy, consecrated priests celebrating the Mass.

We have disobeyed the Fatima message. In Lucia's vision of 1929 we see how the life, His divine life, is flowing from the Father, in the Holy Spirit, through the pierced Heart of Jesus, through Mary's heart--held in her left hand--offering this to Lucia. We see the drops of blood pouring forth from His wounds.

It is through the hands of consecrated priests the grace will flow copiously. Oh, God, have mercy on men for they have sinned. They will die a death far worse than any fate on this earth. They will die the death of the soul.

Lucia saw this vision: Our Lady of Fatima stood beneath the right arm of her Son. Mary appeared at Fatima. She gave her peace plan to the world. Mary was sent by the Father to tell men they are sinning and offending God and they must repent.

Lucia said she received lights into the mystery of the Trinity. The lights I have received into the mystery of God's love were received in the Mass. His burning, undying love for us. When priests are holy priests and consecrated to the heart of Mary and the Heart of Jesus, the grace will flow and the light will cover the earth. The light will be the fire coming forth from the pierced Heart of Jesus, adored and loved in the Sacrifice of the Mass.

Then the light will steal across the sky and the dark hearts will be turned to light. This will only happen when priests and the faithful consecrate their hearts to Jesus and Mary as she requested at Fatima.

We become one in this Sacrifice of the Mass. We must unite all of our activities all through the day to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. We are one with Jesus and Mary when we consecrate our hearts to Them and we are one with each other, for if I am in Their Hearts and you are in Their Hearts, we are one in Their Hearts.

We are now a people walking in darkness for we have disobeyed Our Lady.

All of the great gifts of God are in place and grace is coming forth from the Mass and from our prayers but the day of the deluge is at hand, when the flood gates will be open and grace will pour forth from the pierced Heart of Christ as in Sr. Faustina's Divine Mercy picture.

When hearts are consecrated to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary and the holy priests are celebrating the Mass and are united at every moment to that sacrifice, we will be immensely united and the fountain of God's life will flow on the earth and with this, His great mercy.

There will be this great era of peace in which the Sacred Heart of Jesus will reign and the Immaculate Heart of Mary will triumph.

The Mass Book has the Imprimatur in English and Spanish.

 

December 6, 1996 First Friday

SHEPHERDS OF CHRIST AND FATIMA

In the Shepherds of Christ, we are a family, joined in one heart in Mary and Jesus' Heart because of our consecration to Their Hearts. We are acting as His Heart beating in this world. We are the modern day apostles joined in one heart.

As we give our hearts to Mary, the Holy Spirit gives us lights to know God and we go forth into the world as lights because we love God so much. We cannot know God and not love Him. So our hearts are filled with the burning love of God.

We Are One in Jesus' Heart

 

The core leaders contact the coordinators. The coordinators contact the individual apostles. All apostles are working for Jesus. They try to spend one hour a day either in front of the tabernacle or at home alone with Jesus. In this hour, Jesus directs them on their life. They share intimate love with Jesus. He teaches them about Himself and the Father's will for them. It is so important to spend an hour of intimacy everyday with Jesus.

We live by Mary's Peace Plan given at Fatima. It is as follows:

  1. Until a sufficient number of people have consecrated their hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, we will not have peace in the world.

  2. Mary has requested all to pray the daily rosary.

  3. We must observe the Five First Saturday devotion:
    - Communion, confession (within 8 days before or after the Saturday), recital of the rosary, meditating for 15 minutes on the mysteries of the rosary. All this is to be done in a spirit of reparation.

  4. We must make reparation to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

His plan centers around this.

We have heads functioning in the individual ministries. Everything we do leads to consecration of hearts. As the apostles press on the three institutions, the Church, family, and school to help spread the consecration, the strayed ones will be led home to His Heart.

Mary said at Fatima, until a sufficient number of people have consecrated their hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, we will not have peace in the world.

The Present Condition of the World

Pictorial representation of of Present Condition of the World

Peace will come when hearts are hearts of love. The scales must shift. It will happen through the consecration. Mary's peace plan: until a sufficient amount of people consecrate their hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, we will not have peace.

The Scale Must Shift

Pictorial representation of shift in Present Condition of the World

The Father looks to the earth; He sees much darkness.

Tree showing much darkness in the world

The Father looks to the earth. There are so many hearts that are not on fire for love of God. The hearts of burning love light up the earth. It is as lights on a Christmas tree. It is sparsely lighted. Therefore, the tree looks dark.

As the Shepherds of Christ Movement spreads (as well as other movements focused on spreading consecration to Their Hearts) the tree is covered with more hearts filled with burning love for Jesus and the earth becomes more lighted.

The tree is covered with hearts consecrated to the
Hearts of Jesus and Mary. The tree is so bright.

Tree showing hearts consecrated to Jesus and Mary

As the Shepherds of Christ apostles spread the consecration to the Church, the family, and the school, the tree is covered with lights and the earth is covered with the fire of His love.

The Father looks to the earth now. He is displeased with the hearts of men. The Father wants us to love God and love each other. He wants us to live according to His will in love.

Mary appears at Fatima. She tells us that we are offending God. She tells us what we must do. Mary's peace plan:

  1. Until a sufficient number of people have consecrated their hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, we will not have peace in the world.

  2. Mary has requested all to pray the daily rosary.

  3. We must observe the Five First Saturday devotion:
    - Communion, confession (within 8 days before or after the Saturday), recital of the rosary, meditating for 15 minutes on the mysteries of the rosary. All this is to be done in a spirit of reparation.

  4. We must make reparation to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

Mary said there will be an era of peace, in which the Sacred Heart of Jesus will reign and the Immaculate Heart of Mary will triumph.

God gave us Mary as our Mother. We are disobeying our Mother's requests given at Fatima. Do you think the Father is pleased with willful children disobeying their mother?

Man disobeys, the devil blocks the Fatima message. World War II happens just as Mary said.

Jesus writes His message of love on our hearts. His life lives in our hearts. The Scriptures and the Mass live in our hearts.

In the Shepherds of Christ Movement, our focus is on the priest.

JESUS THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD

Written on First Saturday:

Isaiah 30:19-26:

Yes, people of Zion living in Jerusalem,
you will weep no more.
He will be gracious to you
when your cry for help rings out;
as soon as he hears it,
he will answer you.
When the Lord has given you
the bread of suffering
and the water of distress,
he who is your teacher will hide no longer,
and you will see your teacher
with your own eyes.
Your ears will hear these words
behind you,
"This is the way, keep to it,"
whether you turn to right or left.
You will hold unclean
the silver platting of your idols
and gold plating of your images.
You will throw them away
like the polluted things they are,
shouting after them, "Good riddance!"
He will send rain
for the seed you sow in the ground,
and the bread that the ground provides
will be rich and nourishing.
That day, your cattle will graze
in wide pastures.
Oxen and donkeys that work the land
will eat for fodder wild sorrel,
spread by the shovel-load and fork-load.
On every lofty mountain,
on every high hill
there will be streams and water-courses,
on the day of the great slaughter
when the strongholds fall.
Then moonlight will be
bright as sunlight
and sunlight itself will be
seven times brighter
-like the light of seven days in one-
on the day Yahweh dresses
his people's wound
and heals the scars of the blows
they have received.

Isaiah 40:1-8:

"Console my people, console them,"
says your God.
"Speak to the heart of Jerusalem
and cry to her
that her period of service is ended,
that her guilt has been atoned for,
that, from the hand of Yahweh,
she has received
double punishment for all her sins."

A voice cries, "Prepare in the desert
a way for Yahweh.
Make a straight highway for our God
across the wastelands.
Let every valley be filled in,
every mountain and hill be leveled,
every cliff become a plateau,
every escarpment a plain;
then the glory of Yahweh will be revealed
and all humanity will see it together,
for the mouth of Yahweh has spoken."
A voice said, "Cry aloud!" and I said,
"What shall I cry?"
-"All humanity is grass
and all its beauty like the wild flower's.
The grass withers, the flower fades
when the breath of Yahweh blows on them.
(The grass is surely the people.)
The grass withers, the flower fades,
but the word of our God remains for ever."

Adam and Eve are given great gifts and insights into God. They sin, the light of knowing God is dimmed. They do not know God as they did before the sin.

Christ comes, He is the Light of the world. He dies, He gives Himself. He shares His life with us through sanctifying grace.

Through Baptism, we receive this sharing in His divine life. The more He shares His life, the more we are saturated with His life, the more we know Him. He reveals Himself to us-we see the light.

The Kingdom of God is at hand. It is all here: the Mass, the Eucharist, God giving Himself.

To partake more in His life we must give ourselves to Him.

Mary appears to Bernadette. She tells her she is the "Immaculate Conception." We are sinners, but through Mary, the pure and sinless one, we can unite deeply in Him.

We are in darkness in varying degrees. The more we are saturated with His life, the more we see.

The reign of God is at hand. Since He came to the earth, everything is in place to see the light.

God is giving to us great graces to see the light now. He is lifting the veil.

There will be the era of peace as Mary promised at Fatima.

On July 13, 1917 Mary said, "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."9

Isaiah 30:26:

Then moonlight will be
bright as sunlight
and sunlight itself will be
seven times brighter
-like the light of seven days in one-...

We see the darkness. As at night, we do not see the colorful leaves, they are there, we do not see them.

In the morning light we see the glory of the beautiful day, the colorful leaves.

As the light steals across the sky, we see more and more. As the sun gradually comes up, we see more clearly the beauty of the leaves.

At first our vision is not so clear because the light does not show in its deepest intensity. As the sun comes up we see more and more vividly until finally we see clearly the beauty of the colorful leaves.

Isaiah 30:26:

Then moonlight will be
bright as sunlight
and sunlight itself will be
seven times brighter
-like the light of seven days in one-...

The more we are saturated with His life, the more we are one in Him, the more clearly we see. It is in this union, in the depth of His Heart, that we receive such life, that we know Him with great clarity, that we are given this vision of God.

It is not with "eyes" that we see, but the illumination is in the knowing power that He gives to us. He enlightens our minds so we understand more into His divine mysteries. We share most intimately with Him when we are one with Him in the Mass and after Communion. These are treasured moments in which He gives us a special sharing to know Him, our Divine Lover.

We see clearly when our hearts are hearts of love. We see vividly when our hearts are filled with love and peace. We were created to love, to love God and love each other.

Adam and Eve sinned. They lost the great gift given to them. The light of knowing God was dimmed because of their sin.

Christ comes into the world. He is the Word. He is the light of the world. He comes to save man from his sin. He comes in the womb of the Virgin Mary. Mary is the pure and sinless one. Jesus comes to pay the price for the sin of Adam and for our sins. We are all tainted by this sin of our first father and mother. Mary is the immaculate and pure one, the highest human person. Divinity unites with humanity in the womb of Mary. They are one. Jesus is carried within the body of His mother. Such unity from the beginning, for His life is formed within her body. Is it surprising to us, then, if Christ comes within the womb of the Virgin Mary, that we too must go through Mary to unite to Him? Where is the pride in the hearts of men that think they do not have to go through their Mother Mary? If Christ comes in the womb of Mary to pay the price for man's sins, and we are tainted by the sin, in order to unite to the Almighty God Who is all holy, we must go through the pure and sinless one.

Adam and Eve sinned. The Father sends His Son into the world to pay the price for man's sins. Jesus is the New Adam; Mary is the New Eve. Man continues to sin, greatly displeasing God. The Father allows Mary to appear to Bernadette at Lourdes as the Immaculate Conception, as having been conceived without original sin. The Father then allows Mary to appear to the children of Fatima as the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

We are sinners, we cannot unite closely to Him unless we go through Mary.

Mary is the pure and sinless one. We can unite deeply to Him. We are in darkness in varying degrees. The more we are saturated with His life, the more we see.

The reign of God is at hand. He came to the earth, He died, He rose on the third day. He gave to the Apostles the power to change bread and wine into His Body and Blood. He gave to them the power to forgive sins. He established His Church pouring forth from His pierced side. We do not see the great gifts that He has given to us. He is giving to us great insights into these gifts. God is giving to us great graces to see the light now. He is lifting the veil.

There will be an era of peace and all will see with such light as Isaiah speaks of in Chapter 30, verse 26:

Then moonlight will be
bright as sunlight
and sunlight itself will be
seven times brighter
-like the light of seven days in one-...

Man sinned. Jesus came to redeem us. Man is still so sinful. Mary appears at Fatima. She tells us that we are offending God, that we must make reparation to her heart and the Heart of her Son.

She gives us the peace plan for the world. She tells us that the Sacred Heart of Jesus will reign and her Immaculate Heart will triumph but we must do what she says. The Church has approved Fatima. The devil has blocked the message. How can we disobey our Mother? How can we ignore her? Mary appeared at Fatima and was ignored. The plan of the Father will unfold despite any person's willfulness.

We are not listening to Mary. Man has sinned. Jesus came to redeem us. Mary tells us what we must do. Men are disobedient. They disobeyed their Mother. They do not do what she told them what they must do at Fatima. When hearts are consecrated to Jesus and Mary they become holy hearts, deeply one with God. The reign of the Sacred Heart is at hand for He has given to us abundant grace that we are seeing with such clarity. When we stay after Communion and go before the tabernacle He gives to us great graces. The more we become one in Him the more He enlightens our minds. We know Him in this oneness we share with Him, especially after Communion and before the tabernacle.

The more we focus on what Mary has told us, the more we will have peace. She is the Queen of Peace. Our Lord has entrusted the peace of the world to her. We are spreading the good news when we spread the consecration.

We must heed the words of our Mother. She will not go away because of willful men. We have angered God more by ignoring Mary. There is only one way: it is the plan that Mary has given to us at Fatima.

Many in the Shepherds of Christ Movement are fervently loving Him. In the Shepherds of Christ Movement, as the apostles spread the consecration to the Church, the family and the school, the fire of His love will cover the earth and it will be lighted with this love coming from the Sacred Heart of Jesus. The Sacred Heart of Jesus will reign and the Immaculate Heart of Mary will triumph.

We, in the Shepherds of Christ Movement are under the direction of Fr. Edward J. Carter S.J., helping to spread the fire of His love across the earth through the consecration.

The hearts of men will turn from their sick and desolate ways to hearts gentle as a little lamb. There will be one flock and one Shepherd and His staff will rule over all. Hearts consecrated to Their Hearts will lead the light across the earth. This light will be a light of intense brightness, brighter and hotter than any light from a flame. It will be the fire of God's love. The Spirit will move in all hearts consecrated to His Heart, and we will know how fire truly spreads, for the love of God is a fire, it is vibrant, it is encompassing, it is smoldering, burning deep within and speedily spreading on the outside. No fires on this earth can ever describe the burning embers that burn from the Sacred Heart of Jesus. No fire burns like the fires coming from His Heart and hearts filled with the love from the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

On October 13, 1917 Our Lady gave to Lucia and 70,000 spellbound people, a great vision: the sun spun in the sky, casting off great lights. This happened three times in about 12 minutes.

It seemed that the whole world was on fire, with the sun spinning at a greater speed each time.
Then a gasp of terror rose from the crowd, for the sun seemed to tear itself from the heavens and come crashing down upon the horrified multitude...Just when it seemed that the ball of fire would fall upon and destroy them, the miracle ceased, and the sun resumed its normal place in the sky, shining forth as peacefully as ever.10

Mary gave this tremendous sign at Fatima and people did not listen. The events that followed were as she had predicted since we disobeyed her. There was a brutal war, World War II. Mary appeared at Fatima six times to three children. The first vision was on May 13, 1917. The sixth and final vision was on October 13, 1917. On July 13, 1917, 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.11

Mary told Jacinta, one of the visionaries from Fatima, "I can no longer restrain the hand of my Divine Son from striking the world with just punishments for its many crimes."12

Adam and Eve sinned. God the Father, sent His Son. Man continues to sin-the Father sends Mary but she is ignored!

Peace will abound when nations, churches, families and individuals are consecrated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary. The Shepherds of Christ Movement, under the direction of Fr. Carter, is a pillar of light in the darkness.

We must encourage all to consecrate their hearts to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Sacred Heart of Jesus and to join the Shepherds of Christ chapters, and the Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus Movement, to pray for priests in a special way, for our Church, and our world.

This Movement is to help in the renewal of the Church and the world, based in consecration, joining our every act to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, praying the rosary, and making reparation to Their Hearts, especially on First Fridays and First Saturday. We will help to save many souls through our prayers and sacrifices. Our consecration to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary greatly helps us in this regard. Their Hearts and the fire of His love will light up this darkened world.

Many are living in darkness because they are not obeying Our Lady. The people will see the light when they obey her and consecrate their hearts to her heart and the Heart of Jesus.

To have this intense union with Jesus, with God, we must give ourselves to Our Lady. It is there in the intimacy with Him that we are saturated with His life and that He reveals to us great lights, great insights into His divine mysteries. Yes, indeed, the light will steel across the earth and the hearts of men will be hearts filled with His love. They will know their God with great light imparted to them by the Holy Spirit, a light given to them because of the deep union that they have with Jesus. The reign of the Sacred Heart is at hand.

Isaiah 30:26:

Then moonlight will be
bright as sunlight
and sunlight itself will be
seven times brighter
-like the light of seven days in one-...

Isaiah 30:25:

On every lofty mountain,
on every high hill
there will be streams and water-courses,
on the day of the great slaughter
when the strongholds fall.

Truly His Heart is the fountain of divine life. It flows through the Church, through the hands of His holy priests. When priests are consecrated to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary and celebrating the Mass, and administering the Sacraments, an immense amount of His grace will be outpoured on the earth.

A people in darkness have seen a great light. Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, the Light of the World!

Our Father...thy Kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. We will all love as the Father intends, for now He looks to the earth and He sees it covered with darkness. As hearts are consecrated to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, the earth will be covered with His light.

Revelations 12:1-12:

Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman, robed with the sun, standing on the moon, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. She was pregnant, and in labour, crying aloud in the pangs of childbirth. Then a second sign appeared in the sky: there was a huge red dragon with seven heads and ten horns, and each of the seven heads crowned with a coronet. Its tail swept a third of the stars from the sky and hurled them to the ground, and the dragon stopped in front of the woman as she was at the point of giving birth, so that it could eat the child as soon as it was born. The woman was delivered of a boy, the son who was to rule all the nations with an iron scepter, and the child was taken straight up to God and to his throne, while the woman escaped into the desert, where God had prepared a place for her to be looked after for twelve hundred and sixty days.

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."

We are in Mary's spiritual womb (heart). She is pregnant, bringing forth her children of light. As we go to her heart, she crushes the head of the serpent. Some of the brightest stars that will light up the earth are in the Shepherds of Christ Movement. We are the children of light. We are being sent forth as she brings us forth her children of light to stamp out the darkness. We must give ourselves to Mary.

CONCLUSION

In Lucia's vision of 1929, Lucia saw Our Lady of Fatima under Jesus' right arm. He will put her peace plan into action. We have ignored her.

On October 13, 1917 Mary gave the following message:

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.13

Mary told Jacinta:

Priests must be pure, very pure. They should not busy themselves with anything except what concerns the Church and souls. The disobedience of priests, to their superiors and to the Holy Father, is very displeasing to Our Lord.

I can no longer restrain the hand of my Divine Son from striking the world with just punishments for its many crimes.14

God allowed the world to suffer the brutal war after Mary was ignored.

He is a just God.

Mt. 25:32-33:
"All nations will be assembled before him and he will separate people one from another as the shepherd separates sheep from goats. He will place the sheep on his right hand and the goats on his left."

"Before receiving the six apparitions of Our Lady, May through October of 1917, the three Fatima visionaries were visited by an angel on three different occasions during the preceding year."15

The second message of the angel says:

Pray! Pray a great deal. The Hearts of Jesus and Mary have merciful designs on you. Offer prayers and sacrifices continually to the Most High. Make everything you do a sacrifice, and offer it as an act of reparation for the sins by which God is offended, and as a petition for the conversion of sinners.16

We must unite our every action as a sacrifice to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass all over the world.

In the fall of the same year, the angel visited the visionaries a final time:

The angel came...bearing a golden chalice in one hand and a Host above it in the other. The amazed children noticed that drops of blood were falling from the Host into the chalice. Presently, the angel left both suspended in mid-air and prostrated himself on the ground, saying this beautiful prayer: "Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, I adore You profoundly. I offer You the most precious Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Jesus Christ, present in all tabernacles of the world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges, and indifference by which He is offended. By the infinite merits of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and [the intercession of] the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg of Thee the conversion of poor sinners.17

Sr. Lucia relates how the angel gave them Communion:
"Then, rising, he took the chalice and the Host in his hand. He gave the Sacred Host to me and shared the Blood from the chalice between Jacinta and Francisco, saying as he did so:

'Take and drink the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, horribly outraged by ungrateful men! Make reparation for their crimes and console your God.'"18 19

The Angel also reminded us that the Eucharist is at the center of the Church's life. And, very importantly, in each of his three messages, the Angel drew attention to the critical role which the Hearts of Jesus and Mary play in our Christian lives:

"Another remarkable fact is that in each of the three apparitions, the Angel already mentions the Holy Hearts of Jesus and Mary, as though linked to one another by an indissoluble union. The account of the first apparition even presents a striking phrase which seems to have been hardly noticed. After having taught this completely God-centered prayer, 'My God, I believe, I adore, I hope and I love you,' the Angel added: 'Pray thus. The Hearts of Jesus and Mary are attentive to the voice of your supplications.' We pray to God, and it is the Holy Hearts of Jesus and Mary that hear and answer our prayers! How could it better express the truth that we can only go to God and please Him by this unique and universal meditation?

"Similarly, in the summer of 1916, when the Angel announces to the three seers their future vocations, it is the Holy Hearts of Jesus and Mary that appear in the foreground as the inseparable mediators of the 'Father of Mercies.' 'The Holy Hearts of Jesus and Mary,' he tells them, 'have designs of mercy on you.'

"Finally, the third time, in the prayer of Eucharistic offering, it is by 'the infinite merits of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and [the intercession of] the Immaculate Heart of Mary,' that the Angel begs 'the conversion of poor sinners' of the Trinity.

"With this constant thought of the mediation of the Holy Hearts of Jesus and Mary, we are already at the very center of the Message of Fatima."20 21

The key to bringing about the reign of the Sacred Heart and triumph of Mary's Immaculate Heart, centers in consecration. It is through consecrated hearts joining as one, united at every second to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass being offered around the world, that grace will be spilled out in abundant proportions on the earth. We need His Life!
