A Prayer for Intimacy with the Lamb, the Bridegroom of the Soul

Oh Lamb of God, Who take away the sins of the world, come and act on my soul most intimately. I surrender myself, as I ask for the grace to let go, to just be as I exist in You and You act most intimately on my soul. You are the Initiator. I am the soul waiting Your favors as You act in me. I love You. I adore You. I worship You. Come and possess my soul with Your Divine Grace, as I experience You most intimately.


Messenger: Please pray for 5 urgent intentions!
                      Pray for 3 priests


Messenger: WE URGENTLY NEED FUNDS TO PUT OUT THE NEXT NEWSLETTER, PRAY FOR THIS AND FOR THE NEWSLETTER AND ALL INVOLVED.

                    NEWSLETTER on CHURCH PART (members of Church) 


Excerpt from the Newsletter January, 2001 

       e) Relationship with Members of the Church
There is but one true Church of Christ. Yet this one Church has three different states of existence. There is the pilgrim Church, the Church of this world, composed of members who have received the grace of Christ and strive for its development. They have not yet obtained the goal of their efforts, as have the members of the heavenly Church, who enjoy God in eternal happiness. The Church suffering is an intermediate state of existence necessary for those who had not achieved the required purification as members of the pilgrim Church. Although there are these three phases of the Church's existence, there is a profound union existing between all the members. All these members possess the same basic life of grace in Christ, and this common life establishes the most intimate bonds of love. In our preceding chapter, we discussed the pilgrim Church. Let us now consider the Church suffering and the heavenly Church.

   The members of the Church suffering are those who have departed from this life in an incomplete state of Christian development. Their development is incomplete in the sense that grace has not fully taken possession of them, and, as a result, they are yet closed in upon themselves to a greater or lesser degree. They as yet cannot open themselves out in complete love to the Triune God in the beatific vision. They must undergo a further purification, a purification which could have been achieved upon earth with merit. Now the purification must be achieved with no merit attached. The pain of this purification is mixed with the certain expectation of achieving the vision of God. We can hasten the advent of this vision for this people by the offering of prayers and other good works. Scripture itself refers to our action on behalf of those in purgatory in Chapter 12 of the Second Book of Maccabees beginning with verse 38.

   The members of the heavenly Church are those in whom the life of grace has taken full possession and has reached its completion in the life of glory. Faith now is unnecessary, as the light of glory gives the human intellect a new strength and capacity for seeing God face-to-face. While the Christian was a wayfarer, he received the imprint of the indwelling Trinity as he shared in God's own life. Now in heaven that grace-life and possession of God reaches its completionóthe absolute completion is not achieved, however, until the resurrection of the body. The divine persons give Themselves to the beatified in a profound union far surpassing that of the indwelling of the Trinity experienced here below.

   This life of heaven is still the Christ-life, for just as we possess a share in Trinitarian life here below as mediated by Christ, and exercise this grace-life as structured by Him, so also in heaven is the mediation of Christ present. In the words of Rahner, "One always sees the Father through Jesus. Just as immediately as this, for the directness of the vision of God is not a denial of the mediatorship of Christ as man."13 And not only does the humanity of Christ unite the blessed to God, but also, in some way, to the whole of creation. This is merely a completion of what is begun here below, namely, the union with Christ in His humanity establishing the Christian in a special relationship with God, with other men, and with the whole of creation. We have a glimpse, therefore, of the fullness of life which members of the heavenly Church possess.

   The heavenly Church, as St. Thomas says, is the true Church.14 The Church of this earth and the Church of purgatory are, each in its own way, reaching out in loving hope for the heavenly Jerusalem. Vatican II puts it very simply: "The Church, to which we are called in Christ Jesus, and in which we acquire sanctity through the grace of God, will attain her full perfection only in the glory of heaven."15

   The members of the heavenly Church can help us in living our life of grace until we too share its fullness with them. Their power of intercession on our behalf is but another ramification of the communal aspect of Christianity. We are meant to help others grow in Christ. We, in turn, are intended by God to receive aid from othersóyes, from members of the heavenly Church, as well as from those with whom we dwell here below.

   Not only can we be aided by the saints' intercession, but the example of the canonized saints can also be of great value to us. They have concretely proved that full holiness is possible. Such an inspiration is of real worth when we are tempted to think that Christian sanctity in its higher degrees is impossible of attainment. Moreover, the canonized saints, in their diversity, teach us that there are many authentic versions of Christian holiness. They can be innovators in showing us that there are numerous possibilities in assimilating the mystery of Christ, although the basic assimilation remains the same for all Christians of all times. In the opinion of Rahner this is one of the chief roles the canonized saints exert in the life of the Church.16

From yesterday's message


From the newsletter 2000 Issue 3

Humility

Humility is a very important virtue given to us for the spiritual journey.

Humility is both the realization of what we are as creatures of God and the concrete implementation of this realization in our Christian lives. Humility, therefore, is not an exercise in self-depreciation; it is not telling yourself that you are no good, that you really have nothing of any significance to contribute to the service of God. Humility is based on truth. It is compatible with the recognition that God has given a person certain gifts, even great gifts, of nature and grace. If we do not recognize our God-given gifts, we do not thank God for them as we should, nor properly develop these gifts according to His will. God wants us not only to recognize the good that is in us, but also to realize the source of this goodness. Although we have a responsibility to cooperate with His graces, God is the One Who is chiefly responsible for what we are. If one person has advanced to a level in the Christian life that is beyond the level of another, it is ultimately because God has given that person greater graces.

If humility is based on truth and, consequently, allows us to properly recognize our gifts, it also necessitates that we admit to the evil within us, which is also part of the truth and must be acted upon. Humility not only bids us to admit that there is evil in us, but also tells us that, as creatures of God, we should conform to His will and work against this evil side of our persons. In summary, humility allows us to properly evaluate both the good and evil within ourselves.

Here is a quotation from St. Paul which helps us to preserve, and grow in, humility: Who made you so important? What have you got that was not given to you? And if it was given to you, why are you boasting as though it were your own? (1 Cor 4:7).

And in the Letter of James we read: Humble yourselves before the Lord and he will lift you up. (Jm 4:10)

Luke 1: 46-56

The Magnificat

  And Mary said:

    My soul proclaims
        the greatness of the Lord
    and my spirit rejoices
        in God my Saviour;
    because he has looked upon
        the humiliation of his servant.
    Yes, from now onwards
        all generations will call me blessed,
    for the Almighty
        has done great things for me.
    Holy is his name,
    and his faithful love extends age after age
        to those who fear him.
    He has used the power of his arm,
    he has routed the arrogant of heart.
    He has pulled down princes
        from their thrones
            and raised high the lowly.
    He has filled the starving with good things,
        sent the rich away empty.
    He has come to the help
        of Israel his servant,
            mindful of his faithful love
    óaccording to the promise
        he made to our ancestorsó
    of his mercy to Abraham
        and to his descendants for ever.

    Mary stayed with her some three months and then went home.


February 10, 2001 - GOD IS ALL POWERFUL

Jesus speaks: It is with emotion, I deliver this message to you.
                            It is serious what I tell you.
                            How do I make you understand?
                            You are willful in your ways.
                            Do not raise your voice to Me to deliver the message
                                  I give you.
                            And yet the world plays its music profaning My
                                  words and they do not respect Me and
                                  I am God.
                            Do you see My messenger, a woman delivering
                                  the message of My love and how do you
                                  respond.

  Messenger:    In sobs she appeared to me, a woman with
                                  a heart pierced deep inside -
                           She cried out to me
                                 "I stood beneath the cross of my Son...

                       I saw her reddened face, for it was the
                       first time she appeared -
                       her skin was golden, darkened, I
                       do not know how to describe.

Jesus speaks:  Write to Me of your commas and your
                                 capitals and block My message
                                 to the world.
                          My face was as the one I show you in
                                 this picture.


Note: The face is in the bottom left two panels.


Jesus speaks: My face I show to you covered with blood
                                 coming from My cheek -
                                 oh and some do not see Me.

                        My countenance one of extreme pain and sorrow.
                        My body twisted beyond recognition as
                                 I hung to My death on the cross
                                 and you smite Me in your willful
                                 ways.

                        My message is the one I have delivered to the
                                 world.
                        I want it as I have delivered it.
                        You who are so gifted, who have received
                                 so much from Me, slight My messenger
                                 when she tells you My desire for
                                 the message as I choose to deliver it.

                        My Mother appears on the building in
                                 Florida Feb 5, 2001 and you
                                 argue when you take such
                                 liberties. (Jesus refers to liberties
                                 concerning commas, quotes, punctuation and
                                 capitalization, and miss the message given.)
                        I took you, I held you, I nursed you
                        at the breasts of My Mother.
                        She gave you milk through my word and
                                 fed your weary soul,

    She loves you more than any mother.
    You have your imperfect ways,
    You have your ways of pride,
    You hide your faults - you want yourself
            to look so perfect,

    What lurks beyond is the heart filled with 
            pride.
    You wear a mask.
    You smite Me in your brazen ways,
    You argue with My messenger, you
            want your perfect slates,
            you want things the way you want
            them,
            Some are filled with pride.

Do you write the story of your soul to the
            world and if you did would you 
            let the wrecking crew come through
            with a wheelbarrow full of commas
            to edit and fix the tears that
            fall to the paper below. 

Every writing is a gift I give.
Every emotion one from My Heart.

When Father Carter discerned the Red Rosary book,
          the Blue Books, he discerned every letter
          again and again, he was careful not to 
          change the words I gave. He spent time
          for he realized the authenticity of
          every message, the states of ecstasy,
          the gifts given.

I am not an English Book.
I am the Divine, all perfect God.
Every flower is unique.
Every blade of grass.
Every gift I give is perfectly designed with
        a purpose in mind.


 

 "I AM ALMIGHTY"


                              I am your God.
                               I write to you here.

How many have taken liberties and missed the
        message of Mary?

How many think they see, but do not see at all?
I have given My Apostles' Manual. It is My
        book, I have given to you.

How do you put experiences from the Divine God
        in a bottle?
And yet you want to tell Me how I should write.

        I am God, I give you insights into the
            Divine Mysteries.

I have fed you, I have taught you, I have
    shared with you the secrets of My
    Heart through the emotions and
    voice of My messenger.

When I hung on the cross, I cried out
    from the depths, My anguishing
    pain for the loss of My souls,
    I love so much.

You with all your noise and your haughty
    ways, how do I deliver a message
    when you have made "English"
    your god.

My story is this I give to you.

I am the Divine God and I write My letters of love
    through a chosen soul.

Long ago I showed her Myself hanging on the cross
    and asked her "Did I hold anything
    back from you?"

It was a time when she published My 1st Blue
    Book
and she wanted to hide that she
    was imperfect and in need of direction
    and I showed her Myself and said
    as she looked at Me on the cross, My
    withered body, My hands nailed, My
    feet pierced, I said to her

"Did I hold anything back from you?"

and she wrote, revealing to you the depths
of her imperfect soul.


MY WAYS ARE NOT ALWAYS YOUR WAYS

WOULD YOU STREAMLINE MY WATERWAY?
WOULD YOU MAKE THE ROCKS UNIFORM?
WOULD YOU TRIM MY GIANT TREES?


I write with a flowing hand and your founder
    was careful never to disturb that which
    the hand of God wrote for he respected
    the gifts given.

The hours he spent were endless as to preserve
    that which was given to you.
Oh my men, you are haughty and destroy my flow
    and continuity.
A Mother delivers a word on the day she appears in
    gold and did you hear the message when
    she spoke in church.

DO NOT ADD ANY INTERRUPTIONS TO HER MESSAGE.

I ask you to see her as she appears here
    February 5, 2001



Jesus speaks: I ask you to deliver all messages given to you
                            from My Mother February 5, 2001 after
                            the noon Mass.


Mary's Messages of February 5, 2001

After 12:00 Noon Mass

Mary speaks:  

           My children,

                    You must spread the good news about
                       the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and the
                       gifts given in the Catholic Church.
                    My children need to know about Jesus truly
                       present in the Eucharist.

                    God has lifted the veil for you and now
                       you know the fiery Heart on fire for
                       love of you.

                    You know the love of the Sacred Heart.
                    You know more about His love outpoured
                       in the Eucharist.


Mary speaks: Think of how many are hungry and long to know what you know.

Think of the well dressed business man, that plays golf and watches sick shows on T.V. and is dying inside.

You must pray. You must spread the prayer chapters. You should reach the priests with the prayers and newsletter of my Son.

I appear in golden-rainbow color for the Lord has called His people to respond, now, today and great graces are granted to you that listen, to take you to the depth of His Heart, to be so one in Him.

Oh my children, He gives you such sweet love.

You must pray for the souls, pray for grace.

We come to teach you how to pray.

I love you so much. I love you.

I am your spiritual Mother I come to teach
   you how to pray.

"Lovely Lady dressed in Blue,
teach me how to pray.
God was your little boy
and you know the way."

-Source Unknown. It was read by Bishop Sheen on one of his tapes.

Mary speaks: My children I love you so much I am Mary
                       your Mother. Help me reach my priest-
                       sons. My Son appears here to lead you
                       to His Sacred Heart. Last February 5,
                       2000, He appeared at this site transfigured
                       to my messenger after the opening of the
                       Rosary Factory.

                    I want my rosary to be in the hands of my
                       children.
                    I LOVE YOU with the greatest motherly
                       love, I am your Mother Mary.
                    I am Mother of all the children of the earth,
                    I am Mother of the Church.
                    I am Mother of the World.

                    I appear here as Our Lady Clothed with
                       the Sun.
                    I appear as Our Lady of the Universe.
                    My Shepherds at the Florida site, help me
                       to get my Son's writings through my
                       messengers Father Carter and Rita to the
                       world.
                    My Son's Heart is on fire for love of you.

 

(End of excerpt from February 5, 2001 Daily Message)


                        Now I ask you to pray for the grace to receive
                            the depth of emotion in your soul
                            and to focus on My tabernacle.



                        to see the picture of your founder


THROUGH HIM, WITH HIM AND IN HIM


                    and to read as I wrote that day through
                            My messenger.  February 5, 2001.


Excerpt from February 5, 2001 Daily Message

After 12:00 Noon Mass

Messenger:    He (my God) took me to the depth of
                 His Heart and I love Him so.
                    There is a thirst for Him that nothing here
                 can fill.
                    The depth of my heart cries out for love
                 of Him.
                 This is real. He is God and He gives
                    Himself to us.

                 I do not want this rapture to end.
                 The anticipation of being so one in Him at
                    Mass is my desire.
                 Oh my God, my God I love Thee so much,
                    from the depth of my soul I long to be so
                    one with You.

                    Your favors You impart to me at the
                 Mass and my soul is so gladdened by
                 Your presence and I am filled with
                 adoring love for Thee.

                    My Bridegroom, I adore and worship
                 You. You are my God and my All.

Every word in the Mass resounded in my heart and I knew Him in the deepest union, so one in my soul. I saw Him give Himself to me. I see His gentle, sweet loving face. My Sacred Heart, my Divine God and He, the Almighty God comes to me.

Oh God what to say. I don't want it to ever end. I just want to be one with Thee. I carry this experience of this special presence deep within my heart. I run to spread the good news to His precious souls. I love them so, He loves them so, He is truly present in the Eucharist, the Divine Bridegroom awaits our love.

The reading at Mass resounded in my soul. Read and ask for His grace to fill you, to comprehend the words light and darkness more fully. We could meditate on the word light forever. This is real!! God is real!! Heaven is real!! The Divine God is truly present in the Eucharist, Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity.

                 There is a special presence of God at the
                    12:00 noon Masses I have attended.
                    There is a special gift from God at every
                    Mass.

                 Oh God help us. Help us to unite to all
                    the angels and saints in heaven, to be
                    one with all the souls of the earth, to
                    be one with You, our Divine God, in
                    the Holy Eucharist.


Messenger: Think of how it would be to be blind.
                 Think of how it would be to never see
                    the Consecration of the Mass.
                 Think of how it would be to be blind
                    and never see the Mass.


Messenger: And my heart stood still and I saw Him come
                    to me, He gave Himself to me.

                 Oh my God, I worship You and I love You,
                    Amen. Alleluia.

                 Come to me my Savior, my King, my Light,
                    my Love.


Jesus speaks: I love you My chosen ones, I give Myself
                                   to you.
                                I love you so much.
                                I am your Sacred Heart.
                                Give Me your Valentine.


Jesus speaks:   I am Love, your hearts will know deep love
                                   in Me as never before.
                                I am Love, let go and feel My presence in
                                   your heart.
                                Come to the Holy Eucharist.
                                I love you so much. I am your Valentine Ė
                                   I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
                                Help Me please, to reach the world with
                                   My love,
                                           Jesus

(End of excerpt from February 5, 2001 Daily Message)


February 10, 2001
Jesus continues:
I write in words, the message is printed
                            on the depths of your heart and soul.

                        "See Mary run. Spot is a dog. I am
                            going to the store."

Messenger: (Jesus is referring here to any editing of His messages
                     where sentences and complete thoughts are broken up
                     into little sentences and in so doing stops the flow of 
                     the thought He is trying to convey or breaks up the 
                     emotion He wishes to create on the soul.)

Jesus continues: My men I give you insight into the depths of
                            My Divine Mysteries.

                        Could you paint the image of Mary on the
                            building in all its varying colors as
                            it changes second by second?

Messenger: (Note: I am speaking of when Mary appeared daily
                                July 5, 1994 - September 5, 1995)

                        ". . .and when Mary appeared every day for all
                        those days, there was movement in the vision
                        of Mary, she never remained the same, it
                        was constantly changing and I wouldn't
                        dare look away for my eyes felt as if
                        they were fixed and I existed in another
                        place. I felt as if I was removed from my surroundings
                        and I watched the vision and all the
                        movement, but the changes were so quick
                        I could not see them change at all, it was
                        not like anything here, I could never
                        explain it ..., it is like putting
                        something real big in a little bottle with a
                        very little mouth ..."

Do you see Mary on the building? Are any two pictures
    really the same? Does she appear with a
    white veil sometimes, sometimes blue,
    sometimes green, sometimes golden, sometimes
    golden and rainbow colored?

Jesus speaks: Do you want to put Me in a bottle?
                        I am the Divine God.

                        My gifts are infinite.

                        Can you find the end of the story?
                        You will never know here on earth.

                         You were created to want Me, to want to be possessed
                             by Me, only this will make you happy.

                        You see with such limited vision.

                        You are men, human creatures,
                            I am the Divine God.

                          Do you want to be taught?
                         Do you want to help Me?

                          How do I reach you in your world of noise?
                          Noise that breaks the ear drum.

                        >From Revelation
                           "Let anyone who can hear, listen to what the Spirit is saying to the churches."

Jesus speaks:    And I appeared on the cross at the point of death
                            Dec 5, 1996 and no words came forth
                            from My mouth.

                       ... And I speak in the rosaries.
                           Listen to the varying tones I use.

                        ...And My Mother cried and she appeared
                                over and over again to this visionary and
                                they took My rosary meditations from
                                the tables, they moved the statue that
                                she appeared in after 9 months daily, they
                                stopped the people from coming to the
                                place where she chose to appear, they said
                                they could not pray the Shepherds of Christ
                                prayers, (at that location)

                            they "yellowed-up" (highlighted) My Blue Books
  
                             and took them from the shelves because they
                                said "God wouldn't talk that way"

                        Oh you are so blind, so stiffnecked, so
                            self-righteous, I give you these
                            gifts and you smite Me.

                         You never thought much about adoration or the
                            rosary or prayer and I opened the door
                            to My Heart and revealed to you secrets,
                            secrets that led you into a deeper love
                            union with Me in the Mass.

                        Men get on your knees and pray!! Say you are sorry
                            for your selfish, pompous, self-righteous
                            ways.

                        Get down, ask for grace so your hearts and
                            eyes will be opened.
                        I can't even correct you because you think
                            you are right.
                        One man had 250 reasons from the
                        dictionary why he could alter My words.

                        One man wanted to take out My words
                            of peering, ponders and said
                            Revelation 12:1-2 had nothing to do with
                            the Coronation Mystery of the Rosary.

                        Father Carter had a doctors in theology with,
                            the greatest gentleness, he discerned the
                            Mass book because of its importance
                            to Me.

February 13, 1997

Talk given by Father Edward J. Carter, SJ
Founder of Shepherds of Christ Ministries

Talk given February 13, 1997 National Conference of Shepherds of Christ, held at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center, Norwood, Ohio.

Before we begin the rosary, Iíd like to say a few words about the great importance of these days on the 13th of each month. Before Our Lord asked me to begin the Shepherds of Christ Ministries, the 1st dimension of that ministries was given to me on May the 31st, 1994. But before Our Lord asked me to start the ministries, I had been given a great devotion to Our Lady of Fatima. And I knew that everything concerning recent Marian apparitions centered around the Fatima message. The Fatima message is key to the peace of the world, as Our Lady of Fatima has told us. So because I had been given a great devotion to Our Lady of Fatima, it was no surprise to me when Our Lord told me, and through me the whole Movement, the great connection that there would be between Shepherds of Christ Ministries and helping to bring the Fatima message to conclusion. Iíll expand more upon that in my talk this afternoon. But here and now Iíd like to read just a part of the message I received on October the 13th, 1994, when Our Lord called the full Ministries into existence. It had begun May 31st , some five or six months previous to that. But really October the 13th, 1994, marks the real birth, the complete birth of Shepherds of Christ Ministries. And part of the message I received on that day reads as follows:

"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 Motherís 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. Today then, October the 13th, 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, the Chief Shepherd of the Flock."

The calling of Our Lord to Shepherds of Christ to be present if possible at these meetings on the 13th of each month, and if they cannot be present physically, to be present in spirit with us then comes as no surprise. Itís merely another unfolding in the history of the Shepherds of Christ Movement and in the Fatima message.

These 13th of the months meetings are extremely important. They are great instruments which Our Lord and Our Lady are using to help bring to completion the Fatima message, which will result in that great era of peace, which Our Lady of Fatima promised eventually would come to the world.

So I ask you to take these meetings on the 13th of the month with the utmost seriousness, gratitude, thanksgiving, joy that Our Lord, for His own reasons has chosen Shepherds of Christ, the members thereof, the whole Ministries to play such a great part in the completion of the Fatima message. It comes as no surprise either that Our Lord gives special messages during the rosary on the meeting of the 13th, just as Our Lady of Fatima gave messages to the three visionaries at Fatima in 1917, from May through October. So at this stage of the Fatima messageís unfolding, it is no surprise that they continue, and in a new way and a new phase of the Fatima plan, give us these very special messages on the 13th. They are meant not only for us here present, they are meant for all members of the Movement, and eventually for the whole world. All these messages, all these rosaries on the 13th, eventually go onto our Internet with its world-wide audience.

So please, be very grateful to God for the messages He gives us during the rosary. Not everything which Rita says is a message. I think youíll be able to distinguish when sheís receiving a message from Our Lord or from Our Lady, and when she is speaking from her own heart. Sometimes the transition is very quick and you may miss it, but there are both ways in which meditations are given on the decades: in strict locutions or messages, and then from Ritaís meditations or reflections herself.

(After the Rosary)

I wish to thank everybody who made the effort to be here with us, especially those people who had to travel from out of town. Iím sure the Lord has blessed you already and will continue to do so for your effort to be here. These are extremely important meetings on the 13th of the month. Our Lord has, Himself, instructed us in His great love and mercy for us and the whole world to have them. From these meetings, the messages of Our Lord, the previous message given at Fatima, go out to the whole world...

I sort of left off when I introduced the rosary by reading the rest, or at least a good part of the rest, of that message which I, myself, received on October the 13th, 1994, when Our Lord called the full Shepherds of Christ Ministries into existence.

"My beloved priest-companion, today I come to you with another mission."

He had already asked me on May the 31st of 1994 to start the priestly newsletter and then shortly after that to start the prayer chapters.

"Iím 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 Motherís 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."

So (this is) one of the most important messages given in the whole history of our Movement, and I think you can see why. Not only was Our Lord calling the Ministries into full bloom with this message, but He was making that great connection between Shepherds of Christ and the Fatima message.

You see how He says that both the Fatima message and Shepherds of Christ is centered in devotion, and especially in consecration, to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

So in my moments here before you this afternoon, I wish to speak a bit about this consecration.

Iíll start off by reading a message of Our Lord and from "Tell My People" which deals with this consecration to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

"My beloved friend, tell My people that I desire all to consecrate themselves to My Sacred Heart and to Maryís Immaculate Heart. Tell them not to just recite words in making the Act of Consecration, but to realize what they are saying. Consecration to Our Hearts means a total gift of self. That means handing over everything to Me and My Mother. Consecration means a willingness to surrender completely to Me. In Baptism, one is consecrated to Father, Son and Holy Spirit. But how many fail to live out their consecration? I extend to all the invitation to renew this Baptismal consecration through consecration to My Heart and to My Motherís Heart.

"My beloved companion, I have taught you what this consecration means. I have given you great peace, joy and happiness because you have made this consecration. I have taught you that you are to renew this act of consecration each day. I constantly remind you that you are to pray each day for the grace to more and more live the consecration. I have taught you that your consecration to Me and My Mother means that you constantly surrender yourself to Us and to Our care. I have taught you that the more you surrender yourself to Me, the more I live in you, and through you and for you. I have taught you that My great love for you longs to draw you more deeply into My Heart. I have shown you that I wish your Mother Mary to place you there within My Heart, and that the more you dwell within her Heart, the more deeply she places you within My Heart. Dwelling within Our Hearts, the Holy Spirit fashions you more and more in My likeness. The Father thus looks upon you with greater favor and takes you more closely to Himself.

"Tell My people all these wondrous truths. I am Lord and Master and I desire all to listen to My words. (end of message)"

And what beautiful words those are, which Christ gives all, to us all regarding the consecration to His Heart and Maryís Heart.

I want to - after that message of Jesus telling us what consecration involves, I wish to single out a few aspects of the consecration, what it includes. One aspect of our consecration and especially the consecration which Our Lord has given us for Shepherds of Christ, one aspect of our consecration to Their Hearts is to realize that we are apostles and that we are called to go out into the world as we have heard in the rosary today, and other times to be the apostles of His love, of His love and His Motherís love, and thus to help bring about that great era of peace promised by Our Lord, Our Lady of Fatima in which love will just dominate. Thatís what it means when Our Lady says, "In the end," she says, "my Immaculate Heart will triumph." And along with that triumph of her Immaculate Heart will occur the Reign of the Sacred Heart. The Reign of the Sacred Heart and the triumph of the Immaculate Heart simply is a reign of love, a triumph of love and in that era there will be a type of love existent in the hearts of the members of the human family never known before. We will all be so united in love to the Father and the Holy Spirit through the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. And not only with Them, but with each other. What a glorious era we have to look forward to.

We are apostles. More and more as the Movement has gone on, Jesus is letting us know that, yes, we are supposed to pray. This is one of our primary duties in the chapters and elsewhere, to pray for priests and all others. But more and more He is telling us that now is the time to start to more and more move out from our chapters and to be apostles of His love, to help spread the Movement, to help spread the consecrations in the schools through the consecration cards, the Rosary Aves, both of which have the Imprimatur of the Cincinnati Archdiocese, to help spread all our materials, all our books and all the various rosaries, the rosary tapes. And you are called to do that.

In the beginning of the Movement, it was a relatively few people who were carrying the burden and carrying the Ministry on. We have entered a great new episode of the Movement, principally in that episode, principally centers itself around these meetings of the 13th. More and more people are realizing as they hear more and more the messages, more and more people in the Movement are hearing that Jesus is calling each one of us to be apostles of the Movement, to spread the Movement, to help implement the various ministries in all ways possible, to help spread the movement by starting new prayer chapters. Just think if we have something like, I guess, 2500-3000 members in the chapters and the Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus Movement here in this country and throughout the world-most of those, thus far, in this country.

But just think if each person would take it upon himself or herself to go all out to get one more new chapter formed. Thatís not impossible, I donít think thatís asking something heroic. That would double our chapters; that would double our prayer power. And so much of the Movement, the success of it, depends upon the prayer power coming out of the chapters and the Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus Movement. So Heís calling all of us; and how admirably so many in the Movement are answering. I wish to single out-just because all of you know about the Florida apparition-four or five, six, I donít know how many now of our members from Ritaís core group have gone down to the apparition site. One of our main members, Tom A., has a home there at St. Petersburg, and Clearwater is just a short distance from there. And theyíve been going down and staying in his house, and each day going over to the apparition site and handing out our materials, especially the rosary message tape, but other materials also. This is what Our Lord, Our Lady has asked us to do. And theyíve had phenomenal success. We canít keep enough materials down there. They just, the people are just so eager for it. But this is what. . .and they do it on their own time, they drive down, some of them spend three or four days, some a week and they come back. But what a marvelous example of their answering the call to the apostleship to which Jesus calls them in the Movement. And theyíre doing just a tremendous amount of good.

And by the way when Iím talking and as long as Iím talking about Florida I might read you part of that message of Our Lady. You have read it, no doubt if youíd gotten a copy of the picture with the message on the back. But for my own purposes I want to read that here and now. So Mary tells us, this is the message which Rita received on December the 19th:

Mary speaks: My dear children, I give to you, my Son, Jesus, born in a stable in Bethlehem on Christmas morní. He is the Almighty God the Light of the world.

I appear to you, my children on a bank in Florida. You have made money your god! Do you know how cold are your hearts? You turn away from my Son, Jesus for your money. Your money is your god.

I am Mary, your Mother. I do not appear as I once appeared to you.

When Rita got that message and when she gave it to me, both of us for a number of days thought that her number of apparitions was simply decreasing, but we both came to the conclusion; well Rita came to the conclusion and I followed after her, in agreement with her conclusion, Mary says, "I do not appear as I once appeared to you." She was saying apparently that, "Iím appearing to you in this new way, where the whole world can see me."

So many othersí apparition sites have had their believers of course, but many, many people throughout the world have doubted all this talk about the various apparition sites of Mary. She says, "I do not appear as I once appeared to you." She is appearing on a bank for the whole world to see.

Mary continues:

"I am asking you today to circulate my message given on a tape on the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, December 12, 1996. Please circulate this tape now."

Thatís one of the main things our apostles down in Florida are doing, handing out the tapes with this message.

Mary continues:

"Please circulate this tape now. Give it to as many people as you can. I am Mary, your Mother. Please circulate my Rosary Book."

Sheís referring to a book which Shepherds of Christ Publications came out right around Christmas time. Hopefully all of you have received it in the mail, Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, as given to Rita. Now hereís the point I want to make here and now. Notice how she links up the apparition site with the circulation of her Rosary Book, and we are circulating the book there. But to me, thereís a very great phenomenon connected with the colors on the window, bank windows and the Rosary Book. And Rita herself pointed this out to me. Now this cover on this book-it was designed by Hal K. weeks and even months before the apparition of Our Lady on the bank in Florida. When did you start to design that Hal? (question asked to Harold K.) Almost, two years ago. And the colors were already selected months ago, right? Well if youíll take the picture of the bank of the apparition of the bank on Florida, and this Rosary Book, you will notice that the colors are the same. To me, thatís a miraculous confirmation of the fact that Our Lady is connecting the apparition site on the bank in Florida with the Shepherds of Christ Ministries in a special way with the rosaries. Itís just phenomenal. You can check the colors out one by one. Theyíre a little bit brighter on the book, but because of the photography involved I think you can see how they wouldnít be quite as bright on this. But check out the colors. Theyíre the same on the Rosary Book and on this. And these colors, as I say, were picked by Hal months and months before the apparition. You can take it for what you want, but for me itís a miraculous confirmation of this message, that Our Lady chose those same colors which are on the front of her Rosary Book, to show the same colors relative to her apparition there on the bank in Florida.

Therefore, our Florida apostles are one of the many examples I could point out to you of how people in the Movement are more and more taking up the challenge, the invitation of Jesus and Mary to spread this Movement throughout the world. They have chosen the Shepherds of Christ Movement as a great instrument to help bring about the Fatima message. How privileged we are to be part of it, to be called to it. I believe, Iíve told you this before, at least some of you have heard me, I think this Movement is one of the greatest in the history of the Church. And I think history itself will bear that out. So how precious a gift each of us has been given by Our Lord in calling us to be members of this Movement.

Therefore, a very important aspect of our consecration to Their Hearts is to be apostles, to help spread all the ministries. Another aspect of our consecration is the idea of union. I think weíre all very well aware how the consecration unites us to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, and through Them to the Father and the Holy Spirit. But perhaps we donít think often enough of that how it unites us with one another, in the Movement, in the Church, throughout the whole world. You cannot grow in union with God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit and Mary, without growing in union with all your neighbors. And this is the tough part. Itís relatively easy to love Father, Son and Holy Spirit and Mary, isnít it? Three Persons in One God infinitely perfect and Mary a human person, perfect, free from all sin. Itís easy to love the Triune Persons and Mary, relatively speaking. But itís not all that easy to love each other all the time, isnít it? And yet thatís what Jesus calls us to. Jesus literally died for each and every person. And no matter how unattractive a person is in their behavior, Jesus still died for that person. If He loved that person enough to die for that person, then certainly we have to love them, him or her, and especially within the Movement. Satan is violently attacking us, he will always try to cause division in the Movement. But if we are going to be examples - and we are called to that, to be examples to the whole Church and the whole world of what itís going to be like in the new era, when we all exist in such great loving union with each other in Christ. We are the forerunners of that. Weíre helping to prepare the way for that for the whole Church, for the whole world. Not only us, but we have been given a special mission for that. So we have to be united in love with each other, if we have differences, we work them out in love and in peace. We work them out in love and in peace. In one of the Blue Books, Jesus says, "The glass is either half-empty or itís half-full." I look at my neighbor, whether he or she is in the Movement or outside of it. I can either look at the half-empty part of the glass or the half-full part. I can either look at that personís faults and concentrate on them, or I can concentrate on the great goodness which is inherently theirs. If they are in the state of sanctifying grace, their soul is magnificently beautiful, despite the blemishes of their failings of their sins. When I look at a person, do I look at the half-empty part or the half-full part?

Everyday I ask you to pray for a growing unity in the Movement. What Our Lord has allowed us to accomplish so far in less than three years is just miraculous, I think itís just miraculous. The sign becomes ever and ever greater that He started this Movement, not me. I was just the instrument which He chose to head it up. He has given me so many beautiful people to help me do the Movement and that includes all of you. He has given you so many beautiful companions in the Movement. Let us concentrate on that part of it. This is the only way weíre going to be models to the rest of the Church and the world, of the profound union that Our Lord calls us to, not only with Himself, but with each other.

Strength for all this, day after day, itís not easy to live this way, is it? But as I said in my homily, the great strength we have for that is the Eucharist. The power of the Eucharist is much greater than your faults or my faults or the faults of others in the Movement that surround you, or the faults of others in your parish, or the rest of the Church and the world. He can give you the strength to arise above your own faults and the faults of others around you, and march forward in the most positive way towards this great new era. Oh what a gift the Eucharist is.

St. Julian Eymard, the founder of the Blessed Sacrament Fathers, who gave us such beautiful writings on the Eucharist, in one of his writings on the Eucharist he says:

"It is true also that the world does all in its power to prevent us from loving Jesus in the most Blessed Sacrament with a real and practical love, to prevent us from visiting Him and cripple the effects of His love. This world engrosses the attention of souls; it finds and enslaves them with external occupations in order to deter them from dwelling too long on the love of Jesus. It even fights directly against this practical love and represents it as optional, as practicable at most only in a convent. And the devil wages incessant warfare on our love for Jesus in the most Blessed Sacrament. He knows that Jesus is there, living and substantially present; that by Himself He is drawing souls and taking direct possession of them. The devil tries to efface the thought of the Eucharist in us, and the good impression made by it; for in his mind, that should decide the issue of the struggle." (That is if we give in to Jesusí desire to possess us in the Eucharist.) "And yet God is all love. This gentle Savior pleads with us from the Host: "Love Me as I have loved you; abide in My love! I came to cast the fire of love on the earth, and My most ardent desire is that it should set your hearts on fire." 1

1St. Peter Eymard, "The Most Blessed Sacrament Is Not Loved!," as in The Treasury of Catholic Wisdom, Fr. John Hardon, S.J., ed.; Ignatius Press, p. 384.

Union amongst ourselves through our union with Jesus and Mary and Father and Holy Spirit. Each of you is so precious to Jesus. He has given each of you a very, very, very special gift, precious gift, in calling you to be involved in this Movement. Very early on in the Movement, it was July 31st of 1994, on the Feast of St. Ignatius, He often gives me very important messages on key feasts, and the Feast of St. Ignatius is a feast for Jesuits, Ignatius Loyola, the founder of the Jesuits. And He told me in that message that He would give great, great, great graces to those who join the Movement, and hope Iím sure, all of you who have been in the Movement have experienced those great graces. In appreciation for the great graces Jesus has given you in the Movement, I ask you, with great joy and a great sense of responsibility and a great sense of privilege, to do what you can to implement the ministries of the Movement. No one else can do your role, can carry out your part. You are preciously unique, no one exists like you now, no one ever has, no one ever will. Itís you alone who can give Jesus the opportunity to do what He wants through your humanity to help spread the Movement. To the extent that you answer Jesus and give yourselves to Him, and work as time and energy permits, as your other duties permit to help spread the ministries, to that extent you give Him an opportunity which no one else can give Him, and to the extent that you hold back, to this extent He loses this opportunity which no one else can give Him.

A precious Savior who has done so much to each of us. Certainly He deserves our full loving response. As I kneel before the crucifix each day, either before a actual crucifix or one in my mind, let us ask ourselves those questions posed to us by Ignatius Loyola, "What have I done for Christ?" "What am I now doing for Christ?" "What ought I to do for Christ?"

(End of February 13, 1997 talk by Fr. Carter)


Jesus speaks: I give to you My Messages through your founder
                            and My Main Messenger.
                        It is from all these messages you have been
                            formed more in the ways of My Heart.
                        Thank your God for the gifts you were given.

                        I cried from the depth of My Heart
                            May 25, 1995.

                            "I am alive, I am alive, I am alive, many times I am
                                treated like a dead object"

                        When you persecute My messenger delivering
                            a message, you persecute Me.

                        I love you, On this February 13, 2001, I ask you
                            to be grateful for the gifts given to you.

                        They would not listen and they thought they
                            were right and they blocked My
                            mission.

                        My handmaid in Brazil is making great
                            headway with the prayer chapters,
                            pray for her.

                         When I delivered messages for Falmouth and
                              the Holy Spirit Center my mission was
                              blocked.

                         MARY APPEARED TO LEAD YOU TO MY MOVEMENT.
                        THROUGH MY PRAYERS AND WORDS I WOULD PLANT MY LOVE DEEP IN YOUR HEARTS.
                    I WANT MY LOVE PLANTED WITH DEEP ROOTS IN YOUR HEART.
                        DEEP — DEEP ROOTS — THE TREES WERE UPROOTED BY THE FALMOUTH FLOOD.

MARY SPEAKS: I APPEAR IN CLEARWATER TO LEAD YOU INTO A DEEPER LOVE UNION WITH MY SON         

Jesus speaks:     In the summer of 1995 they focused on all the
                               antics of satan on the Falmouth Farm
                               instead of promoting prayer chapters
                               and spreading My Newsletter to South
                               America. They would not let My
                               Blue Books go out on the Falmouth Farm.

                          50,000 people came and they passed out
                               3 Boxes of Blue Books.

                          Is that something to raise your voice about?
                          How do you deliver a message to one who wants
                              it their own way?
                          How do you deliver a message from God?

                          When they persecuted Me at the Falmouth
                               Farm for the message delivered in
                               My Blue Books, I appeared at
                               the point of death December 5, 1996
                              My mouth moving because no
                              one was listening.

                         The Father then allowed Mary your
                            Mother to appear in Clear-water
                            December 17, 1996.

                        I sent My Mother to Our Lady of the Holy Spirit
                            Center July 5, 1994, My mission, MY mission,
                            to continue the mission of My Mother
                            began at Fatima was blocked.
                        At the end of the century, I came and gave
                            My Movement to help bring about
                            the Reign of My Sacred Heart.

     Many of those in the Mary movements that were
                 to help Me became jealous and 
                  competitive and tried to stop My Movement.

           Mary appeared at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit
                     Center and the Falmouth Farm to
                     lead you to My Movement at the
                     end of the Century to take you
                     to the depth of My Heart, through 
                     the Shepherds of Christ Movement.

           My messages given in BBI were for deeper
                          love union with God, living in Me.


From God's Blue Book I

Picture of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

Cling to Me

God's Blue Book I Cover

May 13, 1993 

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.

(End of message from God's Blue Book I)


                      Notice how Mary's messages were all through
                                  the 20th Century and then

                        see how My messages given in
                           the Shepherds of Christ are to
                               lead to this deep love union in
                               which you are so one with Me.


John 17: 20-23

     "I pray not only for these
      but also for those
      who through their teaching
         will come to believe in me.
      May they all be one,
      just as, Father, you are in me
         and I am in you,
      so that they also may be in us,
      so that the world may believe
         it was you who sent me.
      I have given them the glory
         you gave to me,
      that they may be one as we are one.
      With me in them and you in me,
      may they be so perfected in unity
      that the world will recognise
         that it was you who sent me
      and that you have loved them
         as you have loved me.


   Jesus speaks: Now look at the Blue Books
    Look at the 1st message of Blue Book 1.
     See how I use the word IN

      I want you to live IN Me.

Many Marian groups that were to open the door to
          My Movement persecuted, blocked and

            spread everything they could to stop
               My Mission.

          Mary appeared, she had her movements to
                    lead you to My Movement at the 
                    end of the second millennium.



Jesus speaks: Shepherds of Christ is My Movement -
          the Movement of the Sacred Heart of Jesus


(Father Carter's
 Writing Career)

Jesus speaks: In the last 33 years I wrote
            through My special priest
                Father Carter to help lead men
                   into this great new era of peace
                   in which My Sacred Heart
                      will Reign.

WHAT DO I WRITE TO THOSE WHO
            WILL NOT OPEN THEIR HEARTS,
                THEIR EYES AND THEIR EARS.

        They think they are right.
         They are blinded and many want things their
                      own way.

I AM the WAY,
 I AM the TRUTH
  I AM the LIFE.

  I speak here, please help Me to deliver
              the words I desire to deliver.
  The daily message reaches souls - all over the
                 world. I write as I do and I am God.

Messenger: These words are used to give insight
                        into the Divine Mysteries.

        We believe in God and we usually
                   never see Him.


Excerpt from Response to God's Love, by Father Edward J. Carter, S.J., pg. 1-2

       ...Radically, God is completely other and transcendent, hidden from man in his inner life, unless he chooses to reveal himself. Let us briefly look at this inner life of God.

       The Father, in a perfect act of self-expression, in a perfect act of knowing, generates his son. The Son, the Word, is, then, the immanent expression of God's fullness, the reflection of the Father. Likewise, from all eternity, the Father and the Son bring forth the Holy Spirit in a perfect act of loving.

       At the destined moment in human history, God's self-expression, the Word, immersed himself into man's world. God's inner self-expression now had also become God's outer self-expression. Consequently, the mystery of God becomes the mystery of Christ. In Christ, God tells us about himself, about his inner life, about his plan of creation and redemption. He tells us how Father, Son, and Holy Spirit desire to dwell within us in the most intimate fashion, how they wish to share with us their own life through grace. All this he has accomplished and does accomplish through Christ. St. Paul tells us: "I became a minister of this Church through the commission God gave me to preach among you his word in its fullness, that mystery hidden from ages and generations past but now revealed to his holy ones. God has willed to make known to them the glory beyond price which this mystery brings to the Gentilesóthe mystery of Christ in you, your hope of glory. This is the Christ we proclaim while we admonish all men and teach them in the full measure of wisdom, hoping to make every man complete in Christ" (Col 1:25-28).

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.

Song: O Lady of Light, shining so bright, be with us this day, guiding our way, O Lady, O Lady of Light.

Mary speaks: I appear to you as Our Mother of Sorrows.

(End of Mary's Message)


         

A rosary can be used to pray for healing. It is powerful to unite our prayers to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and pray through the powerful intercession of Our Lady of Clearwater.

In times of trouble, for special prayer, we can use our rosary and pray as follows.

A Rosary for Healing or for Someone with Cancer.

On one Hail Mary bead or as many as you desire, say: 

May God heal                     through the intercession of Our Lady of Clearwater in union with the Mass and all the Masses being celebrated around the world.

Pray the Hail Mary or Hail Mary's then pray this after the Hail Mary.

May the cancer be uprooted and thrown into the sea.

We believe with all our hearts.

After the Glory Be — pray the following petition.

May                     be healed through the intercession of Our Lady of Clearwater if it be the holy will of God.

Note: You can look at Mary on the image rosary while you pray this rosary.

Note: The above section can be printed out from a PDF file, and you can pray the rosary looking at the pictures.
