Sorrowful MotherMary'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.

~ Seven Sorrows of Mary ~

1. The Prophecy of Simeon

Mary, Joseph and the Child Jesus went to the Temple. Simeon, the prophet, inspired by the Holy Spirit, met them and told Joseph and Mary of the great sufferings of Jesus and Mary. He told Mary that a sword would pierce her heart. From that point on, Mary ever remembered the prophecy of Simeon whenever she beheld her child. When she looked at His little body, even as an infant, she knew He would suffer. Every time she clothed Him and watched Him at play, her heart was torn in her chest as she knew what He would suffer. And a sword, too, shall pierce your heart, O Mary!


2. The Flight into Egypt

Joseph was told by the angel to flee. Joseph, Mary, and the Child Jesus had to flee because of what might happen to Jesus. They had to pack for a long stay. The Child Jesus was so small! They left on their journey, hearts full of fear, trying to protect Jesus. They were forced to flee into Egypt.


3. The Loss of the Child Jesus in the Temple

Imagine the sufferings in Mary's heart when she realized the Child Jesus was not with them. Think of how it would be to lose your child and not know where he was or if anything happened to him. With sorrow in their hearts, Mary and Joseph returned to Jerusalem to look for the Child Jesus. And a sword, too, shall pierce your heart, O Mary!


4. Jesus and Mary Meet on the Way to the Cross

Song: See the eyes that look at Mary
See the eyes of Jesus and Mary as they met on Calvary. Mary's heart knew Jesus' Heart so well! From the first moment of conception and throughout His life, Mary was so connected with Jesus and now she peered into His eyes. The crown of thorns adorned His head! Blood ran down His face! A heavy cross on His back! Wounded, His whole body covered with bleeding wounds! And her whole life flashed before her, the life that she had spent with Jesus. This was the beloved child that she had held in her arms when Simeon told Mary that a sword, too, shall pierce her heart!


5. Jesus Dies on the Cross

(Silence.)
Mary stood under Jesus' cross as He was put to death. She held in her heart the prophesy of Simeon. "and a sword will  pierce your soul too--so that the secret thoughts of many may be laid bare." (Lk. 2:35) See Mary in the Temple with Simeon and Joseph holding the baby in her arms. Now Jesus is dead on the cross! He gave His flesh, He gave His blood so that we might be with Him forever in heaven. He held nothing back. He gave His all. Jesus is with us this day. He remains with us in the Eucharist, no less present than the day that he hung on the cross. He longs for us to come and be with Him. He is in our brother. How can we not love our brother when Jesus died for our brother? Her heart was pierced with a sword. His Heart was pierced with a lance. What came forth was blood and water, the sacramental life of the Church. He lives with us this day in the Church. He gives to us His Sacraments, the source of His life! He gives to us the Sacrament of Penance whereby any sin that we commit can be taken away through the priest. He wants us to be so close to Him! He gives us everything to be close to Him. But we see with such limited vision only those things that are right before our face, when the true reality is that which we don't see with our eyes, the reality of the invisible divinity of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, in the consecrated Host! This is reality! This is our life! This is our power! This is God! And a sword, too, shall pierce your heart, O Mary!


6. Jesus Is Taken Down from the Cross and Laid in Mary's Arms

If we ever doubted for one second that we were loved, we could visualize the picture of Mary as she sat beneath the cross with the lifeless, battered, bruised and bloodied body of her Son in her arms, the same child that she held when Simeon prophesied her suffering. Jesus gave His last breath. He gave the last beat of His Heart. He gave His all! This is the way He complied with the will of the Father. He came to show us the way. He died in perfect peace. To His death He was in peace because He knew the Father's love. The Father loves us so much that He gave His only begotten Son for love of us! The Spirit descended upon the Virgin Mary and the Word was made flesh! The love of the Two Hearts! Such immense love beating for us! In all love there is suffering. Her Heart was pierced with a sword. His Heart was pierced with a lance. And a sword, too, shall pierce your heart, O Mary!


7. The Burial of Jesus

The lifeless body of Jesus was locked in the tomb. What cold reality for Mary to realize that His body is now gone! A stone separated her from her Son! He gave His last breath! He gave the last beat of His Heart for love of each one of us! And she comes to us this day with her sweet, beautiful voice and she asks us to go to her Son and love Him! How can we refuse Jesus who spread His arms and gave His life for each and every one of us? How can we not trust Him when He loved us so much that He allowed them to tear His flesh, to crown Him with piercing thorns and, lastly, to hang Him on a cross? He truly gave His life for us! He, truly God, is with us this day, the same as the day He died on the cross, in the tabernacle! And we take it so lightly! Death has no power over Him! Locked in the tomb for three days, He rose triumphant on the third day as He had foretold. He comes to give us life. He gives us the sacrament of Baptism that initiates us into His life, that makes us children of God and heirs of heaven if we remain in the state of grace. He asks two things: love of God and love of one another! He came to show us the way and His way is love. To His death on the cross He loved each one of us! He calls out to each one of us here today to be His soldiers, to march on a world that has forgotten God, that has forgotten what it is like to love! It is a battle to live in this world. But the battle is won with hearts that are filled with His love, empowered by the grace and might that He pours out in the Eucharist. He calls out for us to come to the Eucharist and to the tabernacle and be fed with His very flesh and blood. To feed on Divine Life, the greatest nourishment, the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, the Son of God! This is the love He gives. This is the love He asks us to share

Messenger:    Our Lord and God the Father said to get
                            the Priestly Newsletter out by
                            Christmas.

                        We received funds just for this purpose
                            alone and a man matched them.
                            This made the funds go up fast.

                        We were able to come up with a
                            good portion of the money
                            for the Newsletter.

                        We about depleted our supply of
                            prayer manuals. We used the
                            ones we had.

                        So if priests want prayer manuals we
                            won't have any.

                        But we were attempting to do what God
                            told us.

                        The cover was designed the exact time
                            Fr. Carter died last year and matches
                            the prayer manual.

                        All the pieces are up at the printers by
                            Christmas for the Priestly Newsletter Book II.

                        It costs more than a dollar a book to
                            send the Newsletter Book, but our donor
                            will still match about $35,000 in funds.

                        We need over $75,000 for postage, but
                            we should get some from our
                            matched donor.

                        It is a great gift the way things have
                            worked.

                        I want to put a letter Fr. Carter wrote
                            on August 8.

     

      

December 21, 2001 message continues

Messenger:    Fr. Carter entered the Jesuits August 8, 1951.

                        This letter will be put in the front of the
                            Newsletter book in his own handwriting.

                        The Newsletter Book will include all the
                            prayers, Shepherds of Christ prayers,
                                         Holy Spirit prayers
                                         Prayer Before Mass
                                         Prayer for Union
                               Prayer for Intimacy with the Lamb
                                Say Daily card
                               I give my heart to Jesus and Mary with you in love
                        Think of having all of these prayers in the
                            hands of the Bishops and Priests.

                        We really need the money for the postage and
                            at least $10,000 for the rest of the book.
                        Think of your helping to send that Newsletter
                            Book with 3 years of Newsletters
                            to the priests Jesus loves so much.

                        What a gift to give to Jesus.
                        What a gift to give to the Church.
                        What a gift to give to the priests.
                        What a gift to give to the world.

                        I want all of you to see the book and
                            really pray for it.

                        God the Father said, it will help change
                            the face of the earth.

                        Our Lady has asked we redo the Little People
                            and Elderly
children's rosary book
                            so the elderly and children will
                            want to pray with the book.

                            Please pray for this.

                        Also we must get Jesus' Blue Books out.
                            This is a big important thing to
                                Jesus.

                            We have been out of Blue Books for
                                so long.

                        This is hurting the Movement and the
                            world.

                        We need the Imprimatur on the Spanish
                            Aves, it just has been blocked and
                            blocked and blocked.

                        It would be wonderful to get the 
                            Imprimatur on the Little Peoples
                            Rosary book.

                        Then all coloring books could have
                            the Imprimatur.

                        Think of spending Christmas with
                            Mary in Clearwater, Florida
                            and coming to daily 6:20
                            prayers.

                            available.

                        Do you know any big printing companies
                            that would donate the printing
                            for the prayer manual prayer books.

                        Our Lord has told me, we can't be shy
                            about telling the world about
                            Mary appearing on the building.

Jesus speaks:  TELL THE WORLD about the Image

                        CIRCULATE PICTURES ALL OVER
                                THE WORLD

                        YOU MUST LABEL PICTURE

Excerpt from January 13, 1999

Messenger:  Friday is Fr. Carter's birthday. He was born January 15, 1929. When we were trying to get out the Mass Book, Jesus kept giving messages that He wanted it out by Fr. Carter's birthday, January 15. Jesus said this was an important date, the fact that Fr. Carter was born in 1929. He wanted Fr. Carter's picture holding up the Host on the front of the Mass Book.

Excerpt from January 15, 1999

Jesus speaks:  On this January 15, 1999, Fr. Carter's birthday, I give this writing to be placed next to the vision of Lucia, June 25, 1929.

Through My Movement, Shepherds of Christ, I will take souls deeply into My Heart through consecration and the priestly newsletter and all the messages We have given to take a soul deeply into Our Hearts.

The Age of the Two Hearts has come to you this day.

end of excerpt from January 15, 1999

 


     

Excerpt from January 14, 2000 - Second Message

Messenger:  Today is the end of the Novena, another 108 days, 12 weeks.

Today is the 14th day of the first month of the year. They were told in Exodus to roast the lamb on the 14th day of the first month and spread some of its blood on the door posts and lintels. At 12:00 midnight, death went through Egypt as described below.

    


  

Exodus 12:1-20

Yahweh said to Moses and Aaron in Egypt, 'This month must be the first of all the months for you, the first month of your year. Speak to the whole community of Israel and say, "On the tenth day of this month each man must take an animal from the flock for his family: one animal for each household. If the household is too small for the animal, he must join with his neighbour nearest to his house, depending on the number of persons. When you choose the animal, you will take into account what each can eat. It must be an animal without blemish, a male one year old; you may choose it either from the sheep or from the goats. You must keep it till the fourteenth day of the month when the whole assembly of the community of Israel will slaughter it at twilight. Some of the blood must then be taken and put on both door-posts and the lintel of the houses where it is eaten. That night, the flesh must be eaten, roasted over the fire; it must be eaten with unleavened bread and bitter herbs. Do not eat any of it raw or boiled in water, but roasted over the fire, with the head, feet and entrails. You must not leave any of it over till the morning: whatever is left till morning you must burn. This is how you must eat it: with a belt round your waist, your sandals on your feet and your staff in your hand. You must eat it hurriedly: it is a Passover in Yahweh's honour. That night, I shall go through Egypt and strike down all the first-born in Egypt, man and beast alike, and shall execute justice on all the gods of Egypt, I, Yahweh! The blood will be a sign for you on the houses where you are. When I see the blood I shall pass over you, and you will escape the destructive plague when I strike Egypt. This day must be commemorated by you, and you must keep it as a feast in Yahweh's honour. You must keep it as a feast-day for all generations; this is a decree for all time.

The feast of the Unleavened Bread

"For seven days you must eat unleavened bread. On the first day you must clean the leaven out of your houses, for anyone who eats leavened bread from the first to the seventh day must be outlawed from Israel. On the first day you must hold a sacred assembly, and on the seventh day a sacred assembly. On those days no work may be done; you will prepare only what each requires to eat. You must keep the feast of Unleavened Bread because it was on that same day that I brought your armies out of Egypt. You will keep that day, generation after generation; this is a decree for all time. In the first month, from the evening of the fourteenth day until the evening of the twenty-first day, you must eat unleavened bread. For seven days there may be no leaven in your houses, since anyone, either stranger or citizen of the country, who eats leavened bread will be outlawed from the community of Israel. You will eat nothing with leaven in it; wherever you live, you will eat unleavened bread."'

Exodus 12:29

The tenth plague: death of the first-born

And at midnight Yahweh struck down all the first-born in Egypt from the first-born of Pharaoh, heir to his throne, to the first-born of the prisoner in the dungeon, and the first-born of all the livestock.

     Mary speaks:            

      My dear children,
          I have appeared now for five years from
        my image site in Clearwater, Florida.
        Special graces will be given for all those
        coming on this anniversary of my five year
