                    If we see the trees as we do in Cincinnati
                we see how they are little and then
                grow bigger — how they die in the
                winter or so it appears, but first
                go out in such splendor, beauty —
                leaves of brilliant colors and then after
                such beauty — soon fall to the ground
                to be trampled on by little children
                at play and the trees once clothed
                in such beauty — now appear
                barren, dead — until spring and then
                most return in so much beauty —
                only to go again through the fall
                season and dead looking in winter.

                    When Fr. Carter died it snowed —
                Notice how when it snows these dead
                looking trees almost look mystical with
                the accumulation of little snow flakes,
                or the ice storm — look at the
                beauty of the Ohio River



                Death/Resurrection — the Pascal Mystery

                Did you think of how we can look
                    like these winter trees as we
                    grow older —
                    but oh — the beauty of the soul
                    filled with God's grace —
                    the dead looking trees of winter —
                    and then a snow - storm —
                    oh like a winter wonderland —
                    covered in white —
                    so very beautiful now — after looking dead —

                    Listen to this quote from the Priestly Newsletter


Excerpt from Priestly Newsletter 1998 - ISSUE FOUR

    Shortly before he was to die from cancer, Joseph Cardinal Bernardin left us these inspiring words about peace: "It is the first day of November, and fall is giving way to winter. Soon the trees will lose the vibrant colors of their leaves and snow will cover the ground. The earth will shut down, and people will race to and from their destinations bundled up for warmth. Chicago winters are harsh. It is a time of dying.

    "But we know that spring will soon come with all its new life and wonder.

    "It is quite clear that I will not be alive in the spring. But I will soon experience new life in a different way...

    "What I would like to leave behind is a simple prayer that each of you may find what I have foundGod's special gift to us all: the gift of peace. When we are at peace, we find the freedom to be most fully who we are, even in the worst of times. We let go of what is non-essential and embrace what is essential. We empty ourselves so that God may more fully work within us. And we become instruments in the hands of the Lord."

                Fr. Carter too died in the cold days of
                winter. He died December 18, 2000, but
                Jesus' birthday is celebrated December 25th.
                Mary's image appeared at Clearwater
                within that 9 day Christmas days —
                December 17, 1996.

                    Jesus showed me His Sacred Heart
                December 17th — 5 years before December 17, 1991 —
                His Heart was opened — white heat —
                surrounded by yellow and it
                was like heat was emitted from this —
                with this message 


December 17, 1991 Picture of Jesus' Heart on fire.

His Burning Heart

R. I was alone in All Saints Church after Mass and Communion, in front of the tabernacle, when I saw the Sacred Heart. It was red around the outside, then a layer of yellow and then the brightest light in the center. I felt heat and it looked like an open furnace.

    I thought about it all day and it instantly gave me peace and warmth in my heart. This is the purpose of these letters—to draw hearts to the ardent on-fire love of Jesus. I received the following message that day:

    "Open your heart to the fire of God's love. He is ablaze in your heart. He wants to dwell in you and love you and others through you. Love God, yourself and one another and experience the fire set aglow in your heart and experience the warmth of His love."

end of writing


                Adam and Eve sinned and we must now
                    die, but we are here to grow to
                    be holy — God gives us —
                    the New Adam and the New Eve to follow —
                    the Hearts of Perfect and Pure love —
                    this for men whose hearts are tainted —

                Jesus took Peter, James and John up Mt. Tabor and
                    showed them Himself transfigured —

                    First He looked like any man — then
                He was transfigured —

                    Look at the dead like looking trees of winter



                Look at the trees covered with snow —


April 13, 2004


                Remember these —

                    We prayed real hard on April 13th
                        in China —
                        came out and it snowed like

                    Snowing like this April 13th in
                        Cincinnati is late for snow

                The beauty of life and death surrounds
                    us in our life — before the
                    sin of Adam and Eve there was
                    not this death —

                Jesus came and became a man - took flesh —
                    then He took on all the sins of
                    the human race —
                    He carried our sins on His cross —
                    He wore our wounds
                    He died — hanging for 3 hours on
                        the cross at the young age
                        of 33

                    To rise from the dead — 3 days


                Have you seen old people in the nursing
                    homes crying — nobody comes to
                    see them — God calls us to love

                We must always LIVE (be alive with His life in us)
                We must see through the eyes of our Father —
                Look at Creation and the messages —
                Look at the fruit of the tree —
                Look at the Word and how Jesus cursed
                    the barren fig tree


Luke 13: 6-9

Parable of the barren fig tree

He told this parable, ‘A man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard, and he came looking for fruit on it but found none. He said to his vinedresser, "For three years now I have been coming to look for fruit on this fig tree and finding none. Cut it down: why should it be taking up the ground?" "Sir," the man replied, "leave it one more year and give me time to dig round it and manure it: it may bear fruit next year; if not, then you can cut it down." ’


                In Genesis — man was told to increase
                    and multiply and bear fruit

                Some how we can get lost — focusing
                    on our lives here — like we
                    will never die to this life on
                    earth and should store
                    up things for ourselves here —

                But we are here only a short time —
                    our love never dies — God
                    commands us to love —
                    Our love goes with us

                We must store up treasures for the
                    here after


Mark 10: 17-30

He was setting out on a journey when a man ran up, knelt before him and put this question to him, ‘Good master, what must I do to inherit eternal life?’ Jesus said to him, ‘Why do you call me good? No one is good but God alone. You know the commandments: You shall not kill; You shall not commit adultery; You shall not steal; You shall not give false witness; You shall not defraud; Honour your father and mother.’ And he said to him, ‘Master, I have kept all these since my earliest days.’ Jesus looked steadily at him and he was filled with love for him, and he said, ‘You need to do one thing more. Go and sell what you own and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; then come, follow me.’ But his face fell at these words and he went away sad, for he was a man of great wealth.

Jesus looked round and said to his disciples, ‘How hard it is for those who have riches to enter the kingdom of God!’ The disciples were astounded by these words, but Jesus insisted, ‘My children,’ he said to them, ‘how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God! It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for someone rich to enter the kingdom of God.’ They were more astonished than ever, saying to one another, ‘In that case, who can be saved?’ Jesus gazed at them and said, ‘By human resources it is impossible, but not for God: because for God everything is possible.’

Peter took this up. ‘Look,’ he said to him, ‘we have left everything and followed you.’ Jesus said, ‘In truth I tell you, there is no one who has left house, brothers, sisters, mother, father, children or land for my sake and for the sake of the gospel who will not receive a hundred times as much, houses, brothers, sisters, mothers, children and land — and persecutions too — now in this present time and, in the world to come, eternal life.


                    We live in the here and now and yet we
                see the cycle of life goes on

                    Old people of all kinds —

                    We can become bitter for not getting
                        love from others —
                        thirsty for love and looking in
                        the wrong places

                A little baby can look like their
                    87 year old relative —
                    Why don't we get it — how short
                    life really is —
                    And how precious it is while
                        we live it —
                    We are so saddened by a 1 1/2
                        year old really sick —
                        but we are all so vulnerable —

                    A man of 40 can catch a bad
                disease and go really quick —

                    Or a child in high school —
                once vibrant get cancer —

                    God made us beautiful —
                    God gave us talents to serve Him —

                    The beauty of how our eye
                        sees and our hands work —
                        our organs function —

                    How God gives us food to sustain
                        our body

                    And how God gives us the Eucharist,
                        His Word — whereby He
                        feeds the sharing in His life He gave us
                        in baptism

                Look in the mirror —
                We are all the creation of God —

                The beauty of our nose to smell
                The beauty of our eye to see and to
                    close at night —

                Look at our mouths used for
                    talking and eating etc.
                    Smiling, faces

                What beauty we are
                God's creation

                Little babies tender skin —
                Our skin — our knees — our
                    heart —
                    it lasts - so long —

                A child can be sick and with the medicine
                    and care today be made well

                God gave us each other to help us live and
                    to help us help each other —

                Doctors, farmers, teachers —

                Moms, dads, priests, policemen etc.

                Gratitude — thanking God for the
                    bird that sings
                    the baby that smiles and makes faces —

                Being alive — IN HIM

                Smiling — so when our heavenly
                    Father is watching He says —
                    that's My creation
                    that is My son and daughter —

                Showing that goodness of Christ alive
                    in us

                Thanking God for the Church
                Thanking God for His Word
                Thanking God for our talents and using
                    them for His purpose

                Jesus: Oh beloved of My Father,
                    How truly blessed you are —
                    You are created by God —
                    Such beauty —
                    Such precision —
                    Aging is the will of God —

                That you will be closer to your
                    heavenly reward if you
                    loved and served God

                Your face is not like a sheet —

                Your face is to be used to
                    show the purity of your
                    heart —
                    to be alive in your heart —
                    alive in ME

                Life for you on this earth is short —
                    but your eternal life
                    depends on how you lived
                    as the Father wanted and how
                    you were when you die —

               God the Father made you
                    God the Father gave you a family
                        of love —

               You are to always recognize your
                        union with God and
                        others —

                Don't be an elderly crying out —
                        I am sorry I never lived
                        my life in joy —

                As one could barely move in
                        the nursing home — she
                        cried — I should have done
                        things in kindness, in love, to please
                        God —
                        Now I can't even turn myself over
                        I have time to sit and just think —
                        I was angry a lot and
                        I would do it different —

            R. Let's always say
                    I lived as He lived in me —
                    Time goes on
                        babies grow up and die
                        we got just this life to
                            live and we are to
                            love God and others       

            Religious are called to serve the
                    whole Church —

                Jesus died on the cross for all souls —

                We must say "yes" to life —
                                         "yes" to God's will —

                Be free inside —
                        not enslaved to hidden sins —
                        old wounds we carried
                        forgive them and
                        live in the moment


From a Lenten Homily, March 24, 2000

Live in the Moment

    Today’s Gospel in its story certainly points ahead to Jesus in His Passion and death. And as we read passages such as this during the Lenten season, we are reminded once again that the Church in her Liturgy of the Word gives us an opportunity to undergo a purification, an ever deepening cleansing of ourselves so that we may be a more fit instrument for receiving the great graces which are to be given to us at the time of the Resurrection memorial on Easter. And so all in all, Lent is a time of purification to prepare us for ever-greater gifts of the Lord. It’s a time of self-discipline, a time to renew our efforts to be self-disciplined in the service of the Lord. Self-discipline is an aspect of purification. And I suggest that one of the most difficult acts of self-discipline in the spiritual journey is to concentrate on the present moment. We have a very strong tendency to disregard the importance of the present moment by focusing in a wrong way on the past or in a wrong way on the future. There are proper occasions for thinking of the past and the future. For example, we have to learn from the past and we have to prepare for the future, but our great emphasis has to be upon the present. There is a Latin axiom which says, age quod agis, age quod agis, which means: do what you are doing, concentrate on the present. And of course we are familiar with that term in the history of spirituality: the sacrament of the present moment. And so the discipline of Lent certainly encourages us to include in a deeper self-discipline a greater determination to get as much as we can out of the present moment. People with a terminal illness have an opportunity as they prepare for death for increased prayer, contrition, love of God. However, some are taken very, very quickly. But for those who have the opportunity of knowing with some certainty the time of their death, I’m sure as they look back on their lives, they are saddened by the many times they did not use time and opportunities for the service of the Lord properly, and are overjoyed at those times in which they did use the present opportunity properly. A great means we have of living in the present properly is a greater focus upon our Lord. For if I have that awareness of the fact I am united with Jesus here and now, why should I be concerned so much about the future or the past? Yes, a great help in living in the present and deriving all the good we can from it for ourselves and others is an ever greater focus upon Jesus, because the more I focus upon Jesus and the more I live with Him in the present moment, the more I am satisfied with the present moment. And so let us in our Lenten activity resolve to grow in that self-discipline - which is very difficult at times - to really live in the presence with the fullness of our being as much as is possible, with the help of God’s grace. Now is the day of salvation. Now is the day of salvation.

end of Father Carter's homily


           Give it all you got —
                    Live to serve God and do it
                        for Him —

           Smile for your heavenly Father as you
                    do it

           He is watching

           Invite Him into your heart with
                    an open door, that
                    He can find room and
                    dwell abundantly there

           Love yourself as the creation
                    of God

           Focus on God as the Father of love

           Look at your gifts —
                    your eyes —
                    your brains —

           Let go of the selfishness

           Love and open your heart to God

           Sing Song: Give Me Your Heart oh Jesus

           Show the world — the love of Jesus
                    in your heart

           Life is short

           LIVE IT

           God reads our hearts —

           Who are we fooling —
                We will be held accountable for our life —

           How we lived in Him

           How we shared —


            I LOVE YOU MOM (our heavenly mother)

            I LOVE YOU God the Father

            I am your cute child

            Song: Little Child

            Lay in bed at night and
                 Let go to God

            Know He knows everything —
                    our whole motive, love,

           Let go
                Union with God
                Union with others
                Be positive

           Look at the sky and see the sun set
                Look at the sky and see the sun come up

           Know the power of God —

           Be held in the Immaculate Heart
                    of Mary

           Dwell in the Sacred Heart of
                    Love of Jesus

           Love, Love, Love

           God is love
                Beg to be as God wants

                    Seeking Unity

            When should we be in touch with
                    our hearts —

            The world can keep getting focused
                    out here 


            Joy comes from being
                    one with God in our hearts —
                    God loves His precious souls —
                    So we love men
                    So we love the souls Jesus died for 


            Celebrate —

            Jesus is the SAVIOR

            Little babies - grow up and die
                We grow old — most of us — unless
                    we die young

            God created everything from
                    nothing —

            God said
                    "Let there be light"

            God made man in His
                    image and likeness

            Adam and Eve were put in the garden —
                    they disobeyed God —
                    they were then subject to
                        death and diseases —
                    but God made promises and
                    God sent a Redeemer
                    Jesus the Savior
                    God found favor with Noah —
                    He commissioned Noah to build
                        an Ark because the
                        men were corrupt

               Noah did as God asked him —
                    It was a loving thing God
                        did to flood the earth
                    It rained on the earth for 40 days


Genesis 7: 11-24

    In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, and on the seventeenth day of the month, that very day all the springs of the great deep burst through, and the sluices of heaven opened. And heavy rain fell on earth for forty days and forty nights.

    That very day Noah and his sons Shem, Ham and Japheth boarded the ark, with Noah’s wife and the three wives of his sons, and with them every species of wild animal, every species of cattle, every species of creeping things that creep along the ground, every species of bird, everything that flies, everything with wings. One pair of all that was alive and had the breath of life boarded the ark with Noah, and those that went aboard were a male and female of all that was alive, as God had commanded him.

    Then Yahweh shut him in.

The flood lasted forty days on earth. The waters swelled, lifting the ark until it floated off the ground. The waters rose, swelling higher above the ground, and the ark drifted away over the waters. The waters rose higher and higher above the ground until all the highest mountains under the whole of heaven were submerged. The waters reached their peak fifteen cubits above the submerged mountains. And all living things that stirred on earth perished; birds, cattle, wild animals, all the creatures swarming over the earth, and all human beings. Everything with the least breath of life in its nostrils, everything on dry land, died. Every living thing on the face of the earth was wiped out, people, animals, creeping things and birds; they were wiped off the earth and only Noah was left, and those with him in the ark. The waters maintained their level on earth for a hundred and fifty days.

                    Abraham married Sarah
                    Sarah was thought barren —

Hebrews Chapter 11

Only faith can guarantee the blessings that we hope for, or prove the existence of realities that are unseen. It is for their faith that our ancestors are acknowledged.

    It is by faith that we understand that the ages were created by a word from God, so that from the invisible the visible world came to be. 

    It was because of his faith that Abel offered God a better sacrifice than Cain, and for that he was acknowledged as upright when God himself made acknowledgement of his offerings. Though he is dead, he still speaks by faith. 

    It was because of his faith that Enoch was taken up and did not experience death: he was no more, because God took him; because before his assumption he was acknowledged to have pleased God. Now it is impossible to please God without faith, since anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and rewards those who seek him. 

    It was through his faith that Noah, when he had been warned by God of something that had never been seen before, took care to build an ark to save his family. His faith was a judgement on the world, and he was able to claim the uprightness which comes from faith. 

    It was by faith that Abraham obeyed the call to set out for a country that was the inheritance given to him and his descendants, and that he set out without knowing where he was going. By faith he sojourned in the Promised Land as though it were not his, living in tents with Isaac and Jacob, who were heirs with him of the same promise. He looked forward to the well–founded city, designed and built by God. 

    It was equally by faith that Sarah, in spite of being past the age, was made able to conceive, because she believed that he who had made the promise was faithful to it. Because of this, there came from one man, and one who already had the mark of death on him, descendants as numerous as the stars of heaven and the grains of sand on the seashore which cannot be counted.   

    All these died in faith, before receiving any of the things that had been promised, but they saw them in the far distance and welcomed them, recognising that they were only strangers and nomads on earth. People who use such terms about themselves make it quite plain that they are in search of a homeland. If they had meant the country they came from, they would have had the opportunity to return to it; but in fact they were longing for a better homeland, their heavenly homeland. That is why God is not ashamed to be called their God, since he has founded the city for them. 

    It was by faith that Abraham, when put to the test, offered up Isaac. He offered to sacrifice his only son even though he had yet to receive what had been promised, and he had been told: Isaac is the one through whom your name will be carried on. He was confident that God had the power even to raise the dead; and so, figuratively speaking, he was given back Isaac from the dead. 

    It was by faith that this same Isaac gave his blessing to Jacob and Esau for the still distant future. By faith Jacob, when he was dying, blessed each of Joseph’s sons, bowed in reverence, as he leant on his staff. It was by faith that, when he was about to die, Joseph mentioned the Exodus of the Israelites and gave instructions about his own remains. 

    It was by faith that Moses, when he was born, was kept hidden by his parents for three months; because they saw that he was a fine child; they were not afraid of the royal edict. It was by faith that, when he was grown up, Moses refused to be known as the son of Pharaoh’s daughter and chose to be ill–treated in company with God’s people rather than to enjoy the transitory pleasures of sin. He considered that the humiliations offered to the Anointed were something more precious than all the treasures of Egypt, because he had his eyes fixed on the reward. It was by faith that he left Egypt without fear of the king’s anger; he held to his purpose like someone who could see the Invisible. It was by faith that he kept the Passover and sprinkled the blood to prevent the Destroyer from touching any of their first–born sons. It was by faith they crossed the Red Sea as easily as dry land, while the Egyptians, trying to do the same, were drowned.  

    It was through faith that the walls of Jericho fell down when the people had marched round them for seven days. It was by faith that Rahab the prostitute welcomed the spies and so was not killed with the unbelievers.

    What more shall I say? There is not time for me to give an account of Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah, or of David, Samuel and the prophets. These were men who through faith conquered kingdoms, did what was upright and earned the promises. They could keep a lion’s mouth shut, put out blazing fires and emerge unscathed from battle. They were weak people who were given strength to be brave in war and drive back foreign invaders. Some returned to their wives from the dead by resurrection; and others submitted to torture, refusing release so that they would rise again to a better life. Some had to bear being pilloried and flogged, or even chained up in prison. They were stoned, or sawn in half, or killed by the sword; they were homeless, and wore only the skins of sheep and goats; they were in want and hardship, and maltreated. They were too good for the world and they wandered in deserts and mountains and in caves and ravines. These all won acknowledgement through their faith, but they did not receive what was promised, since God had made provision for us to have something better, and they were not to reach perfection except with us.

July 31, 1994

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."

- Message from Jesus to Father Edward J. Carter, S.J., Founder, as given on July 31, 1994,
feast of Saint Ignatius Loyola, Founder of the Society of Jesus (The Jesuits)
