A LIGHT FOR THE PEOPLE

Messenger: They sung a song at Mass at the closing. I heard the Gloria sung, I heard the Holy, Holy and the Alleluia and the Lamb of God all sung on this glorious Feast of the Presentation.

Jesus speaks: A light for the people, Oh Israel, you do not see, let your hearts be open and your hearts sing with joy for the cold dark winter is over and the light of a sunny spring day is upon you. The winter is past and the days to come will be the days of souls refined in fire and made holy to live in the Reign of My most Sacred Heart.

I have formed you into a Movement to help to purify the Church and the world through fervent prayer as I have instructed. You will be led into renewal and taken deeply into My Heart.

Lo, the winter is past, the dark days are over and gone, for although you will experience pain and suffering the hearts will be alive with the truth, they will see the glory of Jerusalem, a light, a revelation to the people and I will chastise the earth, but the cleansing will be a time of great joy for the hearts of men will beat with life within their breasts.

I come to bring joy to the troubled souls. Joy, My children, is found in the Savior.

Joy is found in a heart that is one with the Almighty God.

Joy is found in obedience to the Father’s will.

There is no joy in sin and alienation from God.

There is no joy in the heart of one who performs deeds for his own self-gratification and not for God’s honor and glory.

There is no joy in the willful, selfish heart; there is division and strands of darkness and pain.

I give you the pure Heart of the New Eve, Mary Immaculate, Queen of Heaven and Earth.

Oh children of darkness, you do not understand the coming of the Savior. He comes to bring a light to the people which those in darkness will see and will possess with all their hearts and wills. They will seek after their God. He alone will bring joy, peace and love to the troubled hearts.

It is purity you seek, My children, in order to be set free from the paralyzing grip of Satan who wants to steal your hearts and make you cry.

A light for the people in darkness. She appears, Our Lady Clothed with the Sun, a Heart of light, perfection and purity to lead the children to the Light of the World, Jesus Christ, the Son of God, God-made-Man.

I am the Light of the World. You are the children walking in this half-dimmed light. In consecration the light will shine like a burning ember in your hearts.

Put aside your willful ways. I give you a free will to serve Me and to come to Me.

Freedom is found in doing the will of God.

Messenger: Jesus asks for the following to be shown.


December 29, 1996, Apostles Manual, P. 174-176

December 29, 1996

Messenger:
"...he who is your teacher will hide no longer,
and you will see your teacher
    with your own eyes." (Isaiah 30:20)

Jesus: Yes, I am the Teacher of whom they speak and I will reveal to them the secrets of My Heart through these writings and the teacher will be brought to light as the children of light are conceived and brought forth from the womb of the woman.

She is the woman clothed as the sun. She is Our Lady of Light bringing forth her children into the world and the devil's deadly influence will be no more for, as children are conceived and dwelling within the Immaculate Heart of My Mother, she will smite the dragon and they will be protected, My children of light.

And they marched together, children of light and children of darkness and in the darkness you could hear the wailing cries go forth and the gnashing of teeth. They cried forth a brutal cry of death as they fell into the everlasting abyss of destruction and doom.

Oh, I warned them all. The Lady appeared, adorned in light. She coaxed them to come to her heart, the womb in which they would be transformed and know the light and they said, "No, my Lady, we need not your Immaculate Heart. We are tainted in our souls and we will remain children of darkness enveloped in our sins, for we wanted our world and your demands for purity were too high."

Messenger: How could we think Christ's last words on the cross were not important to us? In His dying moments, He gave us His Mother.

He came, our Savior, our King, our Almighty God. He took flesh in her womb, through the power of the Spirit, He was carried in her arms as a helpless baby, He went to the temple and there Simeon said...
"Now Master, you are letting
    your servant go in peace,
as you promised;
for my eyes have seen the salvation
which you have made ready
    in the sight of the nations;
a light of revelation for the gentiles
and the glory of your people, Israel." (Luke 2:29-32), and

"...Look, he is destined for the fall and for the rise of many in Israel, destined to be a sign that is opposed--and a sword will pierce your soul too--so that the secret thoughts of many may be laid bare." (Luke 2:35).

Israel, being the holy city in which He built His temple, in which He lived, in which the Blessed Virgin walked and talked and carried the Son of God in her womb.

For nine long months she carried Him within her womb. Oh children of Mary, some of you listen to His dying words on the cross, some of you do not hear. And darkness covered the earth. For as Simeon predicted, this child is destined for the rise and fall of many in Israel. Many would reject their Mother. The Lady, clothed as the sun, the woman that carried the Light within her womb for those long nine months while He was formed within her body through the Holy Spirit, the Comforter, the Counselor, the One who is forming the Church into all it is to be.

Christ showed us the way.

Jesus: I came in this woman. The Holy Spirit sanctifies and makes holy. I, who am God Almighty, perfect holiness, comes in this holy womb and I am born the Light of the World. My Light shines on that night, the day of My birth. I lived and I was carried and I was so close to this woman of light, the one chosen by the Father. I stuck close to her. So important were those years I walked the earth for I showed you, I walked hand-in-hand with you, My creatures, always by the side of Our Mother, your Mother and Mine.

So you think you needn't heed her warnings and her call for purity and prayers? You think she appears over and over again and the Father, Myself, the Son, and the Holy Spirit are pleased with your pride and the audacity found in your hearts? Do you think that you can ignore your Mother and Mine--a gift I gave you at My death? Do you think you can ignore the spouse of the Holy Spirit, the temple in which He dwelt to bring forth the Son of God? Do you think, oh wicked men, that you can ignore Mary, your Mother, the gift I give you on My death bed, the throne they hung Me on? You think, oh audacious men, that My hand will not strike you and smite your pleasure-seeking bodies, when I gave you the greatest riches, the greatest treasures and you spit on Me and walked away!

You have now ignored My Mother and Me. Oh, sinful world, and you will suffer a fate far worse than any chastisement I once planned, to turn you around. She came, the Lady of Light for 14 months, every day and you ignored her and said, "Not I, my Lady, I am wanting for the world."

You did not see her stand at the foot of My cross and see her weep for in her heart she knew from the prophecy of Simeon that some of her children would rise and some would fall and she knew, under the cross, before I officially gave you My Mother in My dying words, that many of her beloved children would be lost forever and she knew the fate to come.

For the hell you will have, oh children of darkness, those who refused the grace-filled womb of My Mother and yours, the hell you will experience is forever! For a few pleasures in the world below you said 'no' to the Lady clothed as the sun and the dragon came and he wiped you off the face of the earth and he took you home with him. You did not go to the heavenly home I had planned for you where there is eternal light and life. You went to the anguishing pit of darkness and she heard your cries, anguishing cries under the cross--her little children--and she cried, "I stood beneath the cross of My son and I cried."


Message of January 5, 1997

Jesus speaks: Open yourself, Oh Jerusalem, your time is come you will be a light to the people in darkness, many will walk whence you come and the earth will be shakened and the light will come across a dark sky and enlighten their minds.

Oh stiff-necked people, you are so stiff in your ways, let the spirit envelope you and lead you on your way.

A country of stiffs, a people of planning and prodding, of deliberating and wondering--you lack faith, Jerusalem, you lack faith in God.

Oh walk naked into the cold night, you are cold in your hearts and naked in your clothing--I cloth you with glory, I light your face with light, but you turn your cheeks to the darkness and stay stiff-necked in your hearts. Oh cold and dark hearts, reach for the light that you may know the glory that awaits the sinners and enlightens their minds.

(End of excerpt from January 5, 1997 message.)


December 7, 1996 First Saturday - Revelations on the Light

Isaiah 30:19-26

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


Messenger: I make reference here to the entire All-Night Message of December 29, 1996, less than two weeks after Mary appeared on the building, December 17, 1996.

I ask you to click on to this message which is most important, a series of revelations arranged in such order as designated by Our Lord with further insights.

Today is a tremendously important feast for us.

We need 100% energy coming from our wills to serve Him and to live according to the Father’s will.

The Father’s will becomes more clear to us as we dwell in Their Hearts.

The All-Night Message is available on tape which can be obtained from Shepherds of Christ Ministries.

Jesus has requested the All-Night Message be printed here as a separate message dated All-Night Message-December 29, 1996, so that any person not having access to the Apostles Manual or computer can have this message complete in its original form as given on that date.

Please do so, entitle the message, All-Night Message December 29, 1996.

This message will follow February 2, 1999 after the question for married couples.


Question for married couples and others in intimate relationships:

Q: How do I feel we can better serve God through frequent consecration to Their Hearts, that is, by saying frequently through the day to Jesus and Mary, "I give you my heart"?

All Night Message December 29, 1996

Messenger: On December 29, 1996, Jesus woke me at 1:30 A.M. and continued to teach me for six hours. At this time, He gave to me the directions to organize the following revelations given in December in the following order. It is important to understand the connection of the Shepherds of Christ Movement and the completion of the Fatima message. Jesus requested at this time that the apostles study the following revelations. The understanding of this material is crucial to help bring about the reign of the Sacred Heart and triumph of her Immaculate Heart.

December 29, 1996

"...he who is your teacher will hide no longer,

Israel, being the holy city in which He built His temple, in which He lived, in which the Blessed Virgin walked and talked and carried the Son of God in her womb.

For nine long months she carried Him within her womb. Oh children of Mary, some of you listen to His dying words on the cross, some of you do not hear. And darkness covered the earth.

You went to the anguishing pit of darkness and she heard your cries, anguishing cries under the cross--her little children--and she cried, "I stood beneath the cross of My son and I cried."

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

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

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.

October 5, 1996

Mary speaks: I am Our Lady of the Rosary. The Fatima message will unfold around the Shepherds of Christ Movement. I am begging you, please, publish these Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. I appeared daily for 14 months and delivered rosaries for the world. Why have these rosaries been held back from this world? Souls are dropping into hell. Do you comprehend the importance of these rosaries to the Fatima message?

I have appeared as Our Lady of Light and Our Lady of Sorrows delivering these rosaries.

I am now delivering this message as Our Lady of the Holy Rosary.

A great mission I give to you, my beloved apostles in the Shepherds of Christ Movement is to live these rosaries and spread the messages to the world. You must reach the world with these teachings I am giving in the rosary.

On this October 5, 1996, I beg you as your heavenly Mother to not ignore the importance of these rosaries. I have appeared, I have begged, I have warned you. I cannot hold back the hand of my Son any longer. His hand is struck with power.

Today is the 5th of the month, first Saturday. I beg all to study this message and to tell all that come on October 13th, 1996 the importance of these live rosaries and the completion of the Fatima message.

I am Our Lady of the Holy Rosary. This is the key to watching the Movement spread. I am assisting you in publishing and circulating these rosaries. Anyone who stops the rosary messages and meditations will deal with my Son, Jesus!

Souls are at stake and souls have been lost because of the delays to hold back the messages in God's Blue Book and Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. Any negative references in the Movement to these messages displeases my Son for you have been given the greatest gifts in these revelations. I am asking all to help in the circulation of these rosaries and messages. We are communicating to the world majorly in these messages. The completion of the Fatima message is greatly dependent on these messages. Do not give into Satan any longer to block these messages. You are dealing with my Son, Jesus. This is a great gift given to the world. It would please my Son greatly if you expressed to Him your great thanks for the gifts He has given to you. Your answers are found in these messages. They must be studied and recognized for the great gift they are. You were chosen by God to deliver this message to the world. The ingratitude of many displeases my Son greatly. It is now time for the leaders of the Movement and all apostles to support these messages. It is now time to study the content in its entirety. You are missing the key directions because you do not even read the messages.

I am Mary, your Mother. You will be rewarded with the funds needed when you publish these messages and rosaries.

November 9, 1996

Jesus gave four very strong messages concerning these gathering on the 13th. The messages given were on: Oct. 16, 1996, feast of St. Margaret Mary, Oct. 21, 1996, Oct. 30, 1996, and Nov. 3, 1996.

Included are a few excerpts from these urgent messages.

October 16, 1996

Jesus speaks: ...This is a crucial rosary on the 13th of each month to help in the completion of the Fatima message...The 13th is a time to draw you together in harmony...These are My messages, given through My messenger, for the Shepherds of Christ Movement. These messages are for you...I tell you of the urgency of these messages. The dark times are at hand...The Rosary from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary is a crucial part of the completion of the Fatima message...

October 21, 1996

Jesus speaks: I Am, Who Am, I am God. These messages are My messages...I am telling you of the importance of the 13th of the month to this world...The 13th is a major part of the completion of the Fatima message...The 13th is of the utmost importance. The tape from October 13 (1996) must be circulated on November 13 (1996)...The time is very short and many will not know because of the delays. I beg you to please circulate this letter immediately.

November 9, 1996

Jesus has requested we...tell you about the importance of the 13th for the spread of the Movement. If at all possible, please attend. These meetings will take place every 13th at 12:00 noon. You will be notified of the location.

Jesus speaks: My dear beloved ones, I am asking you to spend 5-10 minutes daily listening to the live tapes sent to you. These live tapes of the rosaries will instruct you as My apostles. I am pleased with your efforts to obey these directions. You will help many souls to be saved by your effort to listen and act on these live tapes. I am giving to you abundant grace for listening and meditating on the rosaries. I am Jesus. I thank you for answering this urgent message.

First Friday - December 6, 1996

Jesus speaks: I am calling you as a family. You will be joined in one heart, acting as My Heart beating in this world. All the apostles in the Shepherds of Christ Movement are joined in one Heart.

am_p180.gif (44585 bytes)

Messenger: The core leaders will contact the coordinators. The coordinators will contact the individual apostles. All are apostles with a job directed by Jesus to do. Her peace plan was given at Fatima:

  1. Until a sufficient number of people have consecrated their hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, we will not have peace in the world.
  2. Mary has requested all to pray the daily rosary.
  3. We must observe the Five First Saturday devotion:
    - Communion, confession (within 8 days before or after the Saturday), recital of the rosary, meditating for 15 minutes on the mysteries of the rosary. All this is to be done in spirit of reparation.
  4. We must make reparation to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

His plan centers around this.

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

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

The present condition of the world

am_p182.gif (16895 bytes)

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

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

Image3.gif (1823 bytes)

The Father looks to the earth. There are few hearts fervently in love with God. The hearts of love light up the earth. It is as lights on a Christmas tree. It is sparsely lighted by a few hearts. Therefore, the tree looks dark.

Image4.gif (2641 bytes)

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

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

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

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

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

  1. Until a sufficient number of people have consecrated their hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, we will not have peace in the world.
  2. Mary has requested all to pray the daily rosary.
  3. We must observe the First Saturday devotion.
  4. We must make reparation to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

Mary said there will be an era of peace, no matter what we do, in which the Sacred Heart of Jesus will reign and the Immaculate Heart of Mary will triumph.

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

Mary appeared to me for 14 months daily. She gives us the same message as Fatima. Jesus and Mary give us God's Blue Book and Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. He writes His message of love on our hearts. His life lives in our hearts. The Scripture and the Mass live in our hearts.

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

November 6, 1996

I saw today, our home is the Heart of Christ. Mary is the gate-keeper of this most sacred place. The Lord, the Good Shepherd, is leading us home to His Heart. We are fed on His life. The graces flow abundantly in the Mass and the sacraments through the priest. Christ has chosen them to be special, the chosen ones, anointed, through which His life flows. The priest is another Christ to the world.

Jesus is angered. Mary is the gate-way to the Heart of Christ. She is the key for the priest to have such oneness with Christ. Many priests are bitter in their hearts toward Mary. They do not honor her, respect her, or love her. The Holy Spirit is espoused to Mary. The priest must love Mary to be united to God.

The life flows from the Father, in the Holy Spirit through the pierced Heart of Christ. The fountain of Divine life flows through Mary, through the priest to us. The priest celebrates the Mass, acting as another Christ and administers the sacraments. The more he is one with Christ, the more grace flows through him, the more the people are fed.

Jesus picked the priest. He chose them. He gave them this great gift. The priest is given the highest honor to be another Christ, to celebrate Mass, to consecrate bread and wine into the Body and Blood of Christ, to baptize, to forgive sins, to administer other sacraments.

Jesus is wounded by his ungrateful priests. Many do not treasure this great gift given to them. Jesus laments. He is angered. He cries out, "Many priests do not love My Mother; they do not love Me. They are the Shepherds to lead the stray ones back home (back to His Heart)."

John 10: 2-3:
"He who enters through the gate is the shepherd of the flock; the gatekeeper lets him in..."

Mary is the gate-keeper; there is not another pure and sinless human person. We cannot enter any other way because we are sinners. He gave us the sinless one as the way we enter into His most Sacred Heart. The fountain of life flows from His Heart through the pierced wound.

Mary is the gate-keeper. Satan is trying to separate the priest from Mary. Satan does not want the priest to be one with Christ for he is the one who celebrates the Mass and administers the sacraments. So Satan vehemently attacks the priest who is the main administrator of this fountain of life. So Satan has waged a war against the priest and Mary.

Mary is the key to oneness with Christ. Only in going through the pure and sinless one will we be one with Christ. It is in this oneness with Christ that the graces flow.

Many priests are like a clogged pipe. The grace does not flow as freely as Christ wants, because they are divided from Mary and attached to the world.

Consecration to Mary and Jesus is the way home to the depth of His Heart, our little heaven on earth. We are barely scratching the surface of His Heart. We must enter deeply into His Heart for the grace to flow as fire across the earth. The fire of His love will cover the earth when priests' hearts are consecrated to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary and celebrating the Mass.

Oh fountain of life! The lance pierced His Heart deeply. The thorns surrounding His Heart, press in deeply. Many today love Him with a shallow love.

The words in the Mass and Scriptures are not tasted deep within. The depth is not there. We must love Him with our whole heart, our whole soul, and our whole being.

We must pray for the priests as Jesus has instructed us. It is through the priestly newsletter that Jesus will lead the priests to dwell deeply in His Heart. It is our job in the Shepherds of Christ Movement to be His Shepherds to help lead the strayed ones back to His Heart.

We become one in His Heart, through the great grace He is giving to us in the Movement as promised to Fr. Carter July 31, 1994:

...I will give great graces to the members of the 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.

As we become one in His Heart we are leading the strayed ones home to His Heart through the consecration. There will be one flock and one Shepherd as hearts are led home to His Heart through the consecration. We are shepherding His flock as we spread the consecration to the churches, schools, and families.

We are richly fed with the Eucharist. We encourage the priests to read the priestly newsletter. We ask them to start prayer chapters in the churches centered in consecration, and we beg them to leave the church open so people can spend time with Jesus before the tabernacle.

The institutions are intact, we must encourage them to consecrate their hearts. We are attempting to reach the school children with the consecration and the rosary. We are trying to reach the family with starting prayer chapters in their homes and daily praying the consecration and rosary together.

Mary has asked us to observe the first Saturday devotion. If many did this, many, many souls would be saved. It is all in the spirit of reparation, we give our love to God. For Mary's and Jesus' Heart have greatly been offended. We must make reparation to our God.

The Father looks to the earth. He wants one happy family in which we are loving each other as real brothers. He showed us the depth of His love that he laid down His life for us. This is the love He wants from us.

He wants us to be one happy family in the Shepherds of Christ Movement. Deeply loving one another, deeply united in love that we would love as He showed us how to love, that we would lay down our lives for our brother.

We are the leaders to lead men into this new era. This is the good news as we spread the consecration and the Shepherds of Christ Movement across the earth. Our heavenly Mother has promised peace to the world.

There is not another way. This is Jesus' instrument to help renew the Church and the world. It is through the Shepherds of Christ Movement and Fr. Carter the fire of His love will spread across the earth.

An immense amount of grace will be outpoured. Hearts will fervently love God. We will be one body in Him. We will be one, happy family as the Father intends - loving God and one another.

Jesus speaks:
"The Lord then said:
Because this people approaches me
    only in words,
honours me only with lip-service
while its heart is far from me,
    as far as they are concerned,
is nothing but human commandment,
    a lesson memorized,..." (Isaiah 29:13)

I will write the messages of My love on their hearts through you, My messengers. I will renew the Church and the world greatly through these writings.

My Mother appears and they ignore My Mother. I am talking to you, Fr. Carter. I must make you understand the importance of these revelations to the church and the world.

I beg you to focus all your attention on releasing these writings for the world in their entirety.

I am the Teacher,
"...he who is your teacher will hide no longer
and you will see your teacher
    with your own eyes." (Isaiah 30:20)

December 27, 1996
Title: The Mass and Fatima

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

December 7, 1996 First Saturday -
Revelations on the Light

Isaiah 30: 19-26:

Yes, people of Zion living in Jerusalem,
you will weep no more.
He will be gracious to you
    when your cry for help rings out;

as soon as he hears it,
    he will answer you.

When the Lord has given you
    the bread of suffering

        and the water of distress,
he who is your teacher will hide no longer,
and you will see your teacher
    with your own eyes.

Your ears will hear these words
    behind you,

'This is the way, keep to it,'
whether you turn to right or left.
You will hold unclean
    the silver platting of your idols

and gold plating of your images.
You will throw them away
    like the polluted things they are,
shouting after them, 'Good riddance!'

He will send rain
    for the seed you sow in the ground,
and the bread that the ground provides
    will be rich and nourishing.
That day, your cattle will graze
    in wide pastures.
Oxen and donkeys that work the land

will eat for fodder wild sorrel,
spread by the shovel-load and fork-load.
On every lofty mountain,
    on every high hill

there will be streams and water-courses,
    on the day of the great slaughter
when the strongholds fall.
Then moonlight will be
    bright as sunlight
and sunlight itself
    be seven times brighter

-like the light of seven days in one-
on the day Yahweh dresses
    his people's wound

and heals the scars of the blows
    they have received."

Isaiah 40:1-8:

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

A voice cries, 'Prepare in the desert
a way for Yahweh.
Make a straight highway for our God
across the wastelands.
Let every valley be filled in,
every mountain and hill be levelloed,
every cliff become a plateau,
every escarpment a plain;
then the glory of Yahweh will be revealed
and all humanity will see it together,
for the mouth of Yahweh has spoken.'

A voice said, 'Cry aloud!' and I said,
    'What shall I cry?'

-'All humanity is grass
and all its beauty like the wild flower's.
The grass withers, the flower fades
when the breath of Yahweh blows on them.
(The grass is surely the people.)
The grass withers, the flower fades,
but the word of our God remains for ever.'

Song: A Voice Cries Out in the Wilderness

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

There will be the era of peace.

Isaiah 30:26:
"Then moonlight will be
    bright as sunlight
and sunlight itself
    be seven times brighter

-like the light of seven days in one-..."

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

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

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

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

Isaiah 30:26:
"Then moonlight will be
    bright as sunlight
and sunlight itself
    be seven times brighter

-like the light of seven days in one-..."

In a message to Fr. Carter on July 31, 1994, Jesus has promised us: "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."

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

"Then moonlight will be
    bright as sunlight
and sunlight itself
    be seven times brighter

-like the light of seven days in one-..."

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

She gives us the peace plan for the world. She tells us that the Sacred Heart of Jesus will reign and her Immaculate Heart will triumph but we must do what she says. The Church has approved Fatima. The devil has blocked the message. How can we disobey our Mother? How can we ignore her? Mary appeared at Fatima and was ignored. Mary appeared to me almost daily for 14 months--she does not appear as she once did. Jesus has told me that He will handle these messages, that He is in charge, that the plan of the Father will unfold despite any person's willfulness.

In August 1996, Mary spoke in the rosary: she said she could not hold back the hand of her Son any longer. On the 5th of this month, instead of Mary appearing as she had in the past, Jesus appeared alive on the crucifix with His mouth moving for twenty minutes. We are not listening to Mary or to Jesus. Man has sinned. Jesus came to redeem us. Mary tells us what we must do. Men are disobedient. They disobeyed their Mother. They do not do what she told them what they must do at Fatima. When hearts are consecrated to Jesus and Mary they become holy hearts, deeply one with God. The reign of the Sacred Heart is at hand for He has given to us abundant grace that we are seeing with such clarity this vision of God. He has imparted to us understanding into His divine mysteries.

The more we focus on what Jesus and Mary have told us, the more we will have peace. He is angered by the willfulness of man. He will get their attention. We are spreading the good news when we spread the consecration.

We must heed the words of our Mother. She will not go away because of willful men. We have angered God more by ignoring her. There is only one way: it is the plan that Mary has given to us at Fatima. He is lifting the veil for those whose hearts are consecrated to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

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

We, in the Shepherds of Christ Movement, are spreading the fire of His love across the earth through the consecration.

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

On October 13, 1917 Our Lady gave to Lucia and 70,000 spellbound people, a great vision: the sun spun in the sky, casting off great lights. This happened three times in about 12 minutes. As quoted from Our Lady of Fatima's Peace Plan from Heaven:

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

Mary gave this tremendous sign at Fatima and people did not listen. The events that followed were as she had predicted since we disobeyed her. There was a brutal war, WWII. Mary appeared to me almost daily - very few have listened. She told me over and over again of the souls going to hell. She told me in August she could not hold back the hand of her Son anymore. Adam and Eve sinned. God, the Father, sent His Son. Man continues to sin--the Father sends Mary but she is ignored!

On July 2, 1996, my son, Joseph, was taking pictures of all of the Shepherds of Christ members at Tom Arlinghaus' farm. He took one picture of each person. Jesus told me to tell him to take two pictures of Fr. Carter. The first picture was a normal picture. The second picture was of Fr. Carter covered with a pillar of light.

In front of a statue of Our Sorrowful Mother, Mary was alive in the statue.

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

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

Jesus speaks: This is My Movement for renewal of the Church and the world, based in consecration, joining your every act to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, praying the rosary, and making reparation to Our Hearts, especially on first Fridays and first Saturday. It is through your prayers and sacrifices many souls will be saved. Grace will flow from those whose hearts are consecrated to Our Hearts and the fire of My love will light up this darkened world.

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

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

Isaiah 30:26:
"Then moonlight will be
    bright as sunlight
and sunlight itself
    be seven times brighter

-like the light of seven days in one-..."

Isaiah 30: 25:
"On every lofty mountain,
    on every high hill

there will be streams and water-courses,
    on the day of the great slaughter
when the strongholds fall."

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

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

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

Revelation 12:1-12:

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

And now war broke out in heaven, when Michael with his angels attacked the dragon. The dragon fought back with his angels, but they were defeated and driven out of heaven. The great dragon, the primeval serpent, known as the devil or Satan, who had led all the world astray, was hurled down to the earth and his angels were hurled down with him. Then I heard a voice shout from heaven, 'Salvation and power and empire for ever have been won by our God, and all authority for his Christ, now that the accuser, who accused our brothers day and night before our God, has been brought down. They have triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word to which they bore witness, because even in the face of death they did not cling to life. So let the heavens rejoice and all who live there; but for you, earth and sea, disaster is coming-because the devil has gone down to you in a rage, knowing that he has little time left.'

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

December 27, 1996 Conclusion

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

On October 13, 1917 Mary gave the following message:

I am the Lady of the Rosary. I have come to warn the faithful to amend their lives and to ask pardon for their sins. They must not offend Our Lord anymore for He is already too grievously offended by the sins of men. People must say the Rosary. Let them continue praying it everyday.20

Mary told Jacinta:

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

I can no longer restrain the hand of my Divine Son from striking the world with just punishments for its many crimes.21

God allowed the world to suffer the brutal war after Mary was ignored. God is angry with the world. He is all just.

The second message of the angel says:

Pray, Pray a great deal. The Hearts of Jesus and Mary have merciful designs on you. Offer prayers and sacrifices continually to the Most High. Make everything you do a sacrifice and offer it as an act of reparation for the sins by which God is offended and as a petition for the conversion of sinners.22

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

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

The angel came...bearing a golden chalice in one hand and a Host above it in the other. The amazed children noticed that drops of blood were falling from the Host into the chalice. Presently, the angel left both suspended in mid-air and prostrated himself on the ground, saying this beautiful prayer: "Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, I adore You profoundly. I offer you the most precious Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Jesus Christ, present in all tabernacles of the world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges, and indifference by which He is offended. By the infinite merits of the Sacred heart of Jesus and the intercession of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg of Thee the conversion of poor sinners.23

"Sr. Lucia relates how the angel gave them Communion:

Then, rising, he took the chalice and the Host in his hand. He gave the Sacred Host to me and shared the Blood from the chalice between Jacinta and Francisco, saying as he did so:

'Take and drink the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, horribly outraged by ungrateful men! Make reparation for their crimes and console your God.'24 "25

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

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

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

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

With this constant thought of the mediation of the Holy Hearts of Jesus and Mary, we are already at the very center of the Message of Fatima.26"27

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

December 29, 1996 Continued...

Jesus speaks: I am teaching the world through these writings. The secrets of My Heart I reveal in these messages.

I have revealed Myself in these writings as never before. I will form their hearts and make them whole as they read the writings I write on their hearts.

I have revealed the secrets of My Heart to My beloved ones.

My last words under the cross were words in which I gave you My Mother.

I am speechless. I am the man on the cross that is not heard. I beg you to study My messages for the souls of the faithful will turn to the light through these writings.

I am the Light of the World. My Mother is Our Lady of Light. We are leading the children deeply into Our Hearts with these writings.

The reign of the Sacred Heart and the triumph of the Immaculate Heart will come about. These writings are major to the completion of My Mother's work begun at Fatima.

You must let go of other distractions in your life and study these messages. I will teach the world the secrets of My Heart through your two hearts.

The Mass Book must be published immediately. I have given to you the deadline of January 15 to have the book to the censor for the imprimatur. Pray for the success of these writings. The devil will do everything to stop you.

My directions are clear. Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary will draw many hearts to the woman clothed with the sun.

Messenger: We are not working separately, we are working harmoniously as the beating Heart of Christ to the world.

Jesus speaks: You must focus on the Mass in your writings. I ask My priest to work with My messenger on the Mass section of the book in the beginning and to include this in your newsletter. Your writings will lead the world to My Heart, which is their home.

Holy priests celebrating the Mass will light the world with the fire of My love.

They must be priests loving their Mother and celebrating the Mass with hearts consecrated to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

This consecration will bring about the unity of hearts. All will be united throughout the world in one mind and one heart in the Mass.

I beg you to listen to these revelations and to use them in your newsletter.

From the Message of December 19, 1996:

Jesus speaks: And the light shone in the darkness and the darkness grasped it not, but to as many as responded, they became the children of the light and from them His life flowed into the hearts that were cold and dark and slowly, very slowly, the light began to steal across the darkened sky and the moon was covered with blood. The blood was the blood of the Lamb. The blood represented the blood He shed to give us life.

From the Message of December 22, 1996:

Jesus speaks: And the moon will be covered with blood. It was the blood of the Lamb and it poured forth on a sinful world to cleanse them of their sin, and I give you My Body and Blood in the Mass and I am ignored.

Messenger: The Word became flesh and dwelt among us...

John talks about the light. John was given Mary as his Mother. He knew she was the Lady of Light and he was a son of the light.

John 1:1-10:

In the beginning was the Word:
the Word was with God
and the Word was God.
He was with God in the beginning.

Through Him all things came into being,
not one thing came into being
    except through him.

What has come into being in him was life,
life that was the light of men;
and light shines in darkness,

and darkness could not overpower it.

A man came, sent by God.
His name was John.
He came as a witness,
to bear witness to the light,
so that everyone might believe
    through him.
He was not the light,
he was to bear witness to the light.

The Word was the real light
that gives light to everyone;
he was coming into the world.
He was in the world
that had come into being through him,

and the world did not recognise him.

Messenger: Jesus is alive in the Holy Eucharist this day. He is ignored. He is treated with great indifference.

Many are not even aware that God is truly present. Many do not even know what is going on. This is His lamenting cry from the tabernacle.

John 1:11-14:

He came to his own
and his own people did not accept him.
But to those who did accept him

he gave power to become children of God,
to those who believed in his name

who were born not from human stock
or human desire
or human will
but from God himself.
The Word became flesh,
he lived among us,
and we saw His glory,
the glory that he has from the Father
    as only Son of the Father,
full of grace and truth.

We, His people, have not yet seen His glory in its fullness.

Until we go to the womb of Mary, we will not be children of light to the degree God desires. We are walking in partial darkness. She told us at Fatima what we must do to bring about the reign of the Sacred Heart, when men will see with the light that will be brighter than seven suns.


The two messages that follow are very strong messages received from Jesus (December 19, 1996 and December 22, 1996).

Mary also delivered a short, urgent message on December 19, 1996.

December 19, 1996
Received in a few minutes after Communion
St. Gertrude Church

Jesus speaks: My Beloved Ones,

You will know a great time of trial and darkness. I have written to you of the great sufferings to come. The sinfulness of this world greatly displeases Me. I beg you to pray for forgiveness and turn your hearts to love.

And darkness covered the earth and the light was cast in little corners of the earth. Those who were willful remained in intense darkness, those who were rooted in God, and giving themselves to consecration, were the children of the light.

And the light shown in the darkness and the darkness grasped it not, but to as many as responded, they became the children of the light and from them His life flowed into the hearts that were cold and dark and slowly, very slowly, the light began to steal across the darkened sky and the moon was covered with blood. The blood was the blood of the Lamb. The blood represented the blood He shed to give us life. But the blind just saw ordinary blood and were scared to death. They responded with the greatest fright and lacked peace, but those rooted in God, those whose hearts were consecrated to Mary and Jesus, knew the sign was from God--that the time of reckoning was at hand. Many were punished and suffered a great chastisement. Many were left to death, but the children of light prayed the rosary and trusted in God.

And the night was no more for the light of day came stealing across the sky and myriads of angels filled the sky and the heavens. Sing Alleluia, Praise the Lord, you saints and angels, show yourselves to the survivors for they walked in darkness and could not see, but the light was alive in their hearts and they dwelt within the furnace of His Heart.

Have no fear now, My people, for you are the children of the light and My hand is forever upon you. You may suffer now a little, but it is nothing compared to the splendor to come.

Messenger: Oh, reign of peace, reign of the Sacred Heart, triumph of her Immaculate Heart, we wait for you anxiously for the nights have been cold and dark and we cried a bitter cry in the darkness but we knew of the glories to come for we forever trusted in You and Your mighty hand.

Your hand is struck with power. The Virgin Mary warned the poor children that died an eternal death to mind their ways and they cried out, "Not me, oh, no, God -- your ways are stiff necked and cruel. I want for foolish pleasure now and tomorrow will care for itself."

And the Lord called and called and they marched into the darkness with cold hearts, telling the Almighty God, 'no'.

Mary speaks: Oh, my children, my little children of light, the time is nigh and many will be lost forever. I appeared and warned and told all to mind their ways and come to the Heart of my Son and they said "No, my Lady, not for you or any mother. We are children of darkness and that we remain, for we seek our pleasure by day and feast on sin all night and when you called, mother, we laughed at your Son and ignored Him and His ways." And He called and His call fell on deaf ears.

Please, my children of light, come to my heart now for although you walked next to the children of darkness. I smite the dragon that whirled around you and protected you in my heart and you will now feast on the glories of His Kingdom, my little children of light.

December 22, 1996:

Jesus speaks: Brace yourselves in the Shepherds of Christ. You want to be Christ-like. Is this the true desire in your heart or is it just words like the other words you give to Me?

Brace yourselves. I will lead the way with My rod and My staff, but you must be strong to follow for the way is rocky and the rocks are sharp. They cut through to the soul. They cut through to your heart.

You will be brought to your knees, you will beg for Me, you will be molded and helped with in the abundant grace flowing from My Heart. My little shepherd, so willful and so stupid in your ways, but I love you just the same to My death, child. I love you and you do not see that all I give to you is for your good.

I am not angry with you, My messenger. You must suffer now to write My messages for the world. How could you write had you not experienced My pain in your soul? You are My hand, that I am using to write the messages of My Heart for the world. My Heart was crowned with thorns. So, too, will your heart be pierced and wanting to bleed. Bleed, little heart, My Heart bled for you.

And the moon will be covered with blood. It was the blood of the Lamb and it poured forth on a sinful world to cleanse them of their sin, and I give you My Body and Blood in the Mass and I am ignored.

He slapped their hands and He smite their cheeks and they laughed in their pain and continued their willful ways. But the day of reckoning is at hand and I will separate the sheep from the goats and the sheep I will take home with Me. The goats will know a day as they never knew before for My justice will prevail.

When I warned they would not turn from their evil ways and I could not reach them. They walked as blind men down the path of destruction and who would have thought that the end of the road was so near. And at the end of the road they continued to walk for in the darkness they could not see and they fell into an everlasting pit of doom and suffering.

Justice will prevail. I am a good God. Justice and truth will kiss. When I gave to them My warning they said, "Oh no, Lord," and continued their sinful ways.

The time is at hand. My efforts and yours were in vain. I will wipe their sick smiles from their evil mouths and they will suffer forever the death of the soul.

I will not have mercy on these hard-necked cowards who thought, in their pride, they could smite Me. I will throw the book at them and they will suffer for their sinful ways.

Woe to them who led My children astray. Woe to them. They will burn the eternal death of intense suffering for the murder of My young. And who will help them then? They will know a death beyond all deaths and suffering beyond all suffering. For a few moments of pleasure, they lost their souls forever.

I am a just and merciful God. I give water to quench your thirst, I bathe you in My divine love, but to the evil doers, I will curse their name and wipe them from the face of the earth. I have spoken. Justice will prevail. My hand is struck with power. The senseless ones will know My might.

Who will you call? You said 'no' to God and He struck you for your sinful ways.

All honor and glory be to God for He has visited His people and they cast Him aside. I will light the earth with My love and the dark hearts will curse the night for they will be no more.

And justice will flourish in His time and fullness of peace forever.

I have spoken. The deaf will not hear. My hand is the hand of God and it is struck with power.

I say to the grass to grow and it grows, to the sun to shine and it shines and to you I say, "Be ready for you know not the day nor the hour. I come as a thief in the night to take your soul home to Me. Will you be ready or will you be caught unprepared?"

Prepare ye a way to the Lord. Make ready His steps, My shepherds. I guard you but you will suffer. You must be strong and not caught off guard.

Purify your souls for I am coming and the earth will know My light this Christmas for I will shine in the hearts of the just. I will shine on My shepherds this Christmas. My light will shine in the hearts of those consecrated to My Heart and the heart of My Mother.

Alleluia, a King is born this day. Put aside your silly ways, your bows and tinsel, and praise God. He is in your midst. He reigns this day. You are ignoring the King of Glory. Oh, sinful world, you are in for a weird awakening.

And the light stole across the sky and the light of day shown brighter than seven suns, not to the eye but in the hearts of His faithful ones, the hearts consecrated to God.

December 29, 1996 Continued...

Messenger: He is still with us, we are walking in partial darkness. In order to see the light more fully, to comprehend this glory which John speaks of, we must do as Mary said at Fatima--we must go through her heart and be born more and more as children of the light - then we will see.

On December 22 (1996), Jesus said: "And the moon will be covered with blood. It was the blood of the Lamb and it poured forth on a sinful world to cleanse them of their sin and I give you My Body and My Blood in the Mass and I am ignored."

Revelation 12:1-12:

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

And now war broke out in heaven, when Michael with his angels attacked the dragon. The dragon fought back with his angels, but they were defeated and driven out of heaven. The great dragon, the primeval serpent, known as the devil or Satan, who had led all the world astray, was hurled down to the earth and his angels were hurled down with him. Then I heard a voice shout from heaven, 'Salvation and power and empire for ever have been won by our God, and all authority for his Christ, now that the accuser, who accused our brothers day and night before our God, has been brought down. They have triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word to which they bore witness, because even in the face of death they did not cling to life. So let the heavens rejoice and all who live there; but for you, earth and sea, disaster is coming-because the devil has gone down to you in a rage, knowing that he has little time left.'

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

Jesus speaks: Only when priests' hearts are consecrated to My Heart and Mary's heart will grace flow from the Mass as it should.

Now a trickle of grace is pouring out compared to what it will be when the priests give their hearts to Mary and Jesus.

This is the importance of the newsletter and these revelations: to lead the priests home to the Sacred Heart. Through consecration to the heart of Mary they increasingly become children of light and the light shines in the darkness. They see the Mass, the Scriptures, the sacraments as a fountain of His life. They see, they see, they see the glory of God: the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Now many priests are hiding the tabernacle and act as partially blind men in celebrating the Mass.

The Marian Movement of Priests led some priests to the heart of Our Lady that transformed them into children of light. It was not enough but Jesus will turn the priests' hearts to hearts of love.

If the priests in the Marian Movement of Priests read the newsletter they will hear the Heart of Jesus speak to them.

Our Lady called her children to Falmouth and called her children at Cold Springs and to the Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center. She called through Sandy, through the Batavia visionary and through Rita. They were here to pave the way to get children to give their hearts to Mary. When Jesus' messages came, the devil knew he had to block them for they would bring about the reign of the Sacred Heart.

Mary called her priests. They gave their hearts to her. Jesus called these same priests to feed them and to reveal the secrets of His Heart through Fr. Carter's newsletters which are influenced by these revelations received by My messenger.

The devil was trying to block the flow of the Father's plan to lead the Marian Movement of Priests to the newsletter.

Fr. Edward Carter, S.J. has been given a special mission from Our Lord. He has authored 14 books. He has been molded and taught by Our Lord. His books are not the ordinary insights of other authors. His training was to prepare him to write the newsletter for the priests and the Spirituality Handbook, which is from Our Lord.

It is through the newsletter and the revelations He has given to Fr. Carter and Rita that the teacher will to a great extent further reveal Himself to the world.

The blood of the Lamb was shed for our sins. It is given to us this day "...The Word became flesh, he lived among us,
(...and we saw his glory,
the glory that he has from the Father
    as only Son of the Father,
full of grace and truth.)" (John 1:14).

Jesus told me in the summer of '95 in the rosary how the stars would fall from the sky and how the sun would cease to shine.

Mary said over and over again when she appeared to me as Our Lady of Light, "Souls are dropping into hell like rain."

Revelation 6:12-14:

In my vision, when he broke the sixth seal, there was a violent earthquake and the sun went as black as coarse sackcloth; the moon turned red as blood all over, and the stars of the sky fell onto the earth like figs dropping from a fig tree when a high wind shakes it; the sky disappeared like a scroll rolling up and all the mountains and islands were shaken from their places.

Revelation 12:3,4:

Then a second sign appeared in the sky: there was a huge, red dragon with seven heads...Its tail swept a third of the stars from the sky and hurled them to the ground, and the dragon stopped in front of the woman as she was at the point of giving birth, so that he could eat the child as soon as it was born.

Mary said on December 19, 1996:

Oh, my children, my little children of light, the time is nigh and many will be lost forever. I appeared and warned and told all to mind their ways and come to the Heart of my Son and they said "No, my Lady, not for you or any mother. We are children of darkness and that we remain, for we seek our pleasure by day and feast on sin all night and when you called, mother, we laughed at your Son and ignored Him and His ways." And He called and His call fell on deaf ears.

Please, my children of light, come to my heart now for although you walked next to the children of darkness, I smite the dragon that whirled around you and protected you in my heart and you will now feast on the glories of His Kingdom, my little children of light.

We must spread the consecration. All forces in hell are against us, for the children of light will be saved.

Very many are not giving glory to God--the reign is at hand when hearts will give glory to God.

Jesus speaks: I am the teacher, it is through Fr. Carter and Rita I am revealing the secrets of My Heart that will bring about the reign of the Sacred Heart and greatly renew the Church and the world. I beg, beg you to study these messages in their entirety, I am revealing your directions in these messages for the completion of the Fatima message. My hand is struck with power. The more you spread the Movement, the more souls will be saved and I will give to this world My mercy. I beg you to circulate the tape, Mary's Message, and the messages of December 19, 1996 and December 22, 1996 together. I am Jesus. You must focus on what I am telling you.

I am counting on you, Fr. Carter. I have chosen you and I will guard you. It is through you I will greatly renew the Church and the world. My directions are given here to spread the consecration to the world. You must obey or souls will be lost. I am calling My apostles to days of instruction to spread the consecration. Please emphasize the tapes and the importance of the 13th.

I love you with the tenderest love. I am ONE with you. I operate through you.

Jesus speaks: I ask you to take My messages seriously. PLEASE read them as from God. I am counting on you, Fr. Carter. You will light the dark earth through the Shepherds of Christ Movement. The rosary of July 16, 1995 is important.
