The Novena Rosary Mystery
for March 17th is Sorrowful.


Jesus speaks:        My grace is sufficient for you.

                            My beloved, how dearly I love you and long
                                for you to come to Me in the Eucharist.

Messenger:           He is the Divine God, He gives Himself
                                to me in the Holy Eucharist.





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.



March 16, 2003 message continues

Messenger:          Oh Jesus if I could stay here and be with
                                This is my delight

                            God calls us to do His work
                            We please Him when we do His work,
                                                        when we do His will.

                            My beloved

                                the Sacred Heart
                                He opens His arms wide to caress us.

                                He takes us to Himself.

                                He wants us to dwell in His
                                    Sacred Heart

                                    burning and on fire for love
                                        of us.

                                When I go to the Eucharist,
                                    I am filled with such a
                                    grace sometimes, very frequently,
                                    I cry because He floods
                                    my soul with special graces

                            I just keep telling Him how much
                                I love Him, that is all I can do and
                                I am so happy to be filled with
                                    His loving embrace,
                                    to have My Divine God inside
                                        of me in this special way

                                Jesus is the bridegroom of my soul

                                    I cannot even express what it is

                                    He acts on my soul

                                    I am the soul waiting His favor

                                    I unite so deeply to the Divine

                                    My heart is on fire for love of

                                    but He is the initiator

                                    I am the soul waiting His


                                    God is light and

                                    in Him there is no darkness

                                    He is our beloved

                                    He is with us at all times

                                    He wants us to be united to Him.

                                The devil can tell us negative things
                                    in our minds

                                    we cannot listen God wants
                                    us to love ourselves

                                We were created by God

                                We are very special

                                Fr. Carter always stressed the three loves

                                    1) love of God
                                    2) love of others
                                    3) love of ourselves

                                We need to do all three,

                                God wants us to know how much
                                    He loves us

                                God wants us to know how special
                                    we are Divinely Created

                                Oh Savior why do we give into
                                    the tricks of satan, when God
                                    wants us to accept our suffering,
                                    and joy and live in the
                                    moment, every moment for Him.

                                Death Resurrection

                                joy, peace, love

                                Real happiness is found in Him.

                                The Second Blue Book is so important
                                    because it teaches us a lesson
                                    of surrender.

                                Filled with the letters of burning love from
                                    Jesus God teaches us a lesson of


Messenger:               Fr. Carter said this (when referring to Blue Book II)
                                    the book is a book to teach
                                    us about surrender.

                                Fr. Carter said, I know you are
                                    supposed to read it a letter
                                    at a time, but I got so much
                                    out of it discerning it
                                    reading it from cover to cover.

                                He said he hung on every word
                                    because there is so much
                                    theology in every sentence
                                    of the Blue Books.

                                He discerned them and all my
                                    books this way.
                                He had to have total silence.
                                He put his palms up in prayer
                                    and prayed to the Holy Spirit.

                                He wouldn't let the slightest
                                    noise while he was discerning.

                                He discerned the Message books
                                    1, 2, 3, 4, 5 four times
                                    all messages were discerned like this
                                    two times before the 6:20
                                    prayers, after they were
                                    typed then corrected if anything
                                    was typed wrong than he did it a final time.

                                The writings of Daily Messages give
                                    deep insight into many
                                    mysteries, religious
                                    community life
                                    discussions of Mary and her
                                    role the Mass and so
                                    many other topics.

                                Fr. Carter said that Our Lord told him
                                    the Blue Books were as much
                                    his as mine.

                                He supported and spread the Blue Books,
                                    Jesus' letters of love.

                                We need your prayers for the mailing.

                                Pray for grace for the priest receiving
                                    the mailing.

                                We need funds.

                                We need volunteers.

                                Pray we get all the pieces of the mailing.

                                Pray for the postage and the post offices and Joe Lee.

                                PRAY FOR THE

                                            NEEDED FUNDS

                                Pray for all involved

                                Pray we can get it out by Easter and for the
                                    priests receiving it.

                                Fr. Carter said he was first told by Jesus
                                    Holy Saturday 1994 he would get
                                    public messages for the world.
