A writing from Rita Ring

Messenger:            I write to you with the deepest sincerity in my
                        heart from what was one of the desks of Fr. Carter.

  

   

March 17, 2002 message continues

Messenger:         He wanted a desk at the Morrow Center and a
                        red maroon chair like the Sacred Heart. His
                        friend Ed in the Movement gave him money
                        for the chair in his Morrow office. He was
                        very happy.

  

   

March 17, 2002 message continues

Messenger:         John and I and Father would
                        meet here some Friday nights at the Morrow
                        Center and he would open his precious mail
                        from the priests. He considered the mail from
                        the priests like gold. If ever I picked up
                        his mail he made me be so very careful
                        with it. He never had the time to correspond
                        as he desired. He wanted to, so much, and he
                        truly treasured the mail and made all of
                        us take his mail very seriously. 

                            (It was so very difficult to see him in the hospital 
                        on September 22 of the year 2000 when he had to 
                        surrender his precious mail. He said, "You will have 
                        to let Doris handle it." And I couldn't believe it. His 
                        mail was so important to him from his priests and 
                        I just wanted to cry. Now John the president and 
                        I will help even more with the correspondence. 
                        It is very important to us. Now Doris and Kathleen 
                        at the Morrow Center spend a good amount of their 
                        time handling all the mail, and do a very good job.)

                            Above Fr. Carter's desk in the Morrow Center 
                        is a picture of his favorite Sacred Heart Image.
                        The picture has a cream colored border like
                        his ordination card and the same words
                        beneath it SACRED HEART OF JESUS
                                            I TRUST IN YOU

   

   

    

                            here is his ordination card, when he died we
                        had cards made like this one.

    

    

    

March 17, 2002 message continues

Messenger:         I had it framed for him for above his desk 
                        here. Also he wanted the Blessed Mother image 
                        on the back of the Priestly Newsletter Book II.

                            He loved those two pictures and wanted
                        them on the Priestly Newsletter Book II,
                        Jesus on the front, Mary on the back.

                            He wanted his picture on the back of
                        the book with Mary.

                            I didn't know how that would look,
                        but he wanted my daughter to design it.

                            The only day my daughter could work on the
                        book because of her busy schedule was the
                        night of December 18, 2001. She worked on it
                        the same time Fr. Carter died the year before
                        around 7:10 PM until the end of the night.
                        She didn't even know it was the day he died,
                        she is a graphics art student in her senior year
                        and engaged and very busy. She just did it
                        that night, at that time, because it fit into her
                        schedule. Late that night around 11:00 or so,
                        she was finished and I met her and she gave
                        me the cover.

                            It looked so much like the prayer manual
                        I felt Father Carter designed it himself from
                        heaven and the time she picked to do it, helped
                        me feel that it was what Our Lord wanted.

                            Another interesting story is this. My daughter
                        worked full time most of her college and she 
                        helped to put herself through school.

                            She is the one who worked with Fr. Carter
                        through most of the Newsletters in the book
                        In one Newsletter she put her baby picture.

   

Newsletter 1998 Issue 3
"Christ and the World"

   

March 17, 2002 message continues

Messenger:         Another woman took over the Newsletters
                        later and put all the Newsletters in the book.
                        She did a wonderful job putting them all in the
                        book and working with Fr. Carter and the
                        foreign Newsletters. God has sent us special
                        help to be able to get this book in the hands
                        of all the priests.

                            The funds were provided by some donors,
                        but a special donor who is not wealthy but
                        believed and wanted to help the priests, the
                        Church and the world donated a lot of the
                        money. The donor's relative also helped a lot.

                            We felt very strongly God provided everything
                        so we could do what we had to, to not tarry
                        on this mission.

                            We really struggle with funds doing all we
                        do sending the Newsletter and printing the
                        prayers and sending lots of rosaries and rosary
                        meditations to the catholic schools and Africa
                        and India and all over the world.

                            Here is what Fr. Carter wrote in his last
                        Newsletter he wrote while on earth in the summer
                        of 2000. The Newsletter was on Work.

  


    

CAN YOU HELP US?

    As you know, we distribute the Newsletter free of charge. We have been publishing the Newsletter for six years. Although the fine print on the last page of each Newsletter says that donations are always welcome, we have, to this date, only made one major appeal for donations.

    Now we come to you again and ask for your financial assistance. It is considerably expensive to print the Newsletter and to mail it here in the U.S.A. and to other countries around the world. With our English and Spanish editions, we send the Newsletter to readers in about 90 countries. We soon hope to add a French edition.

    With the help of God’s grace, the Newsletter seems to be accomplishing much good. The numerous letters we receive from around the world regarding the Newsletter’s helpfulness are one indication of this.

    If you share with us our belief that the Newsletter is a very worthwhile ministry, we urgently ask you to seriously consider sending us a donation. We are always struggling to obtain the funds to continue publication of the Newsletter.

    If you are financially able, we would be extremely grateful to receive your donation—whether it is small, large, or medium-sized! We thank all of you who have previously sent donations.

    Some of you may know of possible benefactors who would be interested in helping a worthy cause. And we firmly believe that a ministry which offers an aid for spiritual growth to priests especially, but to others also, is a most worthy endeavor.

    For your convenience, we have enclosed a self-addressed donation envelope.

    Very importantly, we also ask for your prayers that we may obtain the funds necessary to continue publication of the Newsletter and that the Newsletter will be spiritually beneficial to its readers. We hope to continue to publish it four to six times a year. The number of issues will depend upon various factors. Thank you very much for your attention to our urgent plea.

   


    

March 17, 2002 message continues

Messenger:         Well I must tell you another story.

                            My daughter said to get really good pictures
                        of Fr. Carter we should take slides of him
                        in natural light.

                            In the end of the winter season in March or
                        April 2000 when the trees were still barren,
                        she had her equipment and Father Carter told
                        us what we needed to set up an altar in the woods.

                            I don't think he was feeling very good then,
                        but he worked so hard getting out his 20 page
                        Newsletter, Overview of the Spiritual Life, and
                        he kept going even though he was getting sicker.
                        He was empowered, but he never told anybody
                        how he felt or complained.

                            He was supposed to go to the Virgin Mary
                        building January 22, 2000 and he got sick and
                        couldn't go.

                            He went February 5, 2000 and dedicated
                        the opening of our rosary factory from the
                        building there.

Messenger:         Well my daughter took all the things for
                        the altar to the barren woods and it was cold.

                            She set up the altar and Fr. Carter posed
                        for all the beautiful pictures she took

  

  

March 17, 2002 message continues

Messenger:         (Even though it may have looked funny to
                        those driving by us)

                            I thought this picture was a special picture—

   

   

March 17, 2002 message continues

Messenger:         Thank God we got the beautiful pictures
                        she took. Nobody ever thought Father Carter
                        would die so soon.

                            He would talk about it, but I didn't listen,
                        I didn't think God would take him.

                            I listened in October after the chemotherapy
                        when he told me what to do with the Newsletter.
                        He got permission for the Shepherds of Christ
                        to use the material from his two books Response
                        in Christ and Response to God's Love in November,
                        2000 and he told me what he wanted me to do
                        with the Newsletter to continue it using his
                        writings and writings he checked through very
                        carefully. From the time he received the report
                        of his cancer September 22, 2000 and his funeral
                        December 22, 2000, we were very busy. When he
                        could he spoke to me at length about the Newsletter.
                        He took his chemo treatments and we talked daily
                        and faxed very much material back and forth daily.
                        He was very serious about all he did for the
                        Newsletter to continue and all the writings he spent
                        his life on, being prepared for this mission. The
                        supply of writings on the spiritual life he either
                        wrote or carefully prepared is enormous.

                            He said the writings were to help in the renewal
                        of the Church and the world and would be used
                        long after his death to help bring about the Reign
                        of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the triumph of
                        Mary's heart.

Messenger:         He had little things in his room in Columbiere.
                        There was a chair and it looked like he held
                        that holy card while he struggled. In his belongings
                        I received from his sister he had a box of holy
                        cards mostly of Mary holding the little child.

                            Here is a message Mary gave him.

           


  

Excerpt from Tell My People

Children of Mary

Mary speaks:  "My beloved priest-son, how often I have embraced you! How often I have told you how much I love you! How often, at your request, I have held you in my arms as my child. You have told me you realize how helpless you are of yourself, but how strong and secure you feel dwelling in my heart and Jesus' Heart. Your sense of your littleness and helplessness endears you to me all the more. I take you ever more securely to my maternal and Immaculate Heart. Tell all my people of the riches you have found within my heart. Tell them how I place you within my Son's Heart. Tell them that, because of my motherly action, you are now more closely united with Jesus than ever before. Tell my people to come to my heart and draw forth similar riches. Tell all my little ones that Jesus, Who is Lord and Master, bids me to lead all to His Sacred Heart. The more my little ones dwell within my Immaculate Heart, the more I place them within Jesus' Heart. Oh, how I love all my little ones! How I love to bring them to the Heart of Jesus!"

Reflection:  Again, let us remind ourselves that we live in the Age of the Two Hearts. The Hearts of Jesus and Mary are inseparable. The more we dwell in Mary's heart, the more she places us within Jesus' Heart. Within these Two Hearts, the Holy Spirit fashions us more and more in the likeness of Christ, and the more we become like Christ, the more closely He unites us to the Father.

    


   

March 17, 2002 message continues

Messenger:        He saw himself always as dwelling in the
                        Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

                            He had a constant vision, he said of
                        the true image picture of Jesus. He said
                        that constant vision of Jesus helped give
                        him the strength to do what he had to do.

                            He supported the private revelation I
                        received and discerned all the messages
                        saying God's Blue Books, which he very
                        carefully discerned, were as much his
                        as mine and he lived by the Blue Book
                        messages.

                            One of his favorite messages was this
                        one, January 15, 1994 about worrying.

  


 

Picture of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

Refuse to Worry

God's Blue Book II Cover

January 15, 1994 4:50 a.m.

Jesus: I am Jesus, Your Savior. When you are tired and weary, come to Me. I wait for you as would a doting mother, ready to kiss your little wounds and send you out to play.

    I love you so, little one. Come and be with Me in your heart. Do not worry about anything concerning this book. My hand is in everything and I will see to its publishing Myself. Do you fret and fume for nothing? I am God. Why should you worry for the work of God? Do you not think I will take care of My own work? I tend to everything that needs to be done in your life. You are so precious to Me. There is not one thing that happens that I have not consented to.

    To be able to be in the midst of adversity and struggle and say, "God's hand is here and He knows what is happening; I will let go of my anxiety and be at peace," is to reach a great plateau of trust in Me! Trust in Me in all your trials. Refuse to worry. What good does such a needless task perform? If I am God and I am there in every moment of your life and you truly believe it, what are you doing letting yourself worry?

    Child, I have so much love for you that I died on the a cross for you. Look at Me there. I spread My arms and came for you. I love you this much, this very day. How do I make you realize how much you mean to Me? Well, I am here in everything you are experiencing. There is not one thing that happens without My consent. Do you hear Me? Think of one of your little hairs falling out. I am that hyper-vigilant. I know whence that hair came. I know the very pore on your head it fell from.

    If I, Jesus, am that attentive to you and everything that is happening with you, what are you doing worrying? It is your trust and faith in Me that gives you peace. Practice letting go on all matters. Refuse to worry. Place every care in My hands and trust I will tend to it. You, My child, are so precious. I want you to know how I am truly there, loving you and watching you and guarding you.

    I watch you like a doting mother lest you stumble and fall and lose your way. In that little trial, practice turning it over to Me. Trust in Me. It is an act of your will to truly trust Me or to worry about your problem.

    Listen to Me saying, "Child, I love you, child, I am love, child, don't worry. Turn your burden over to Me." You can be free of worry if you let go. Sail away in your hot air balloon. Drop the package of worries at the foot of My cross and sail away in a trouble-free sky.

    You are lifted to such heights in My love! I am so powerful. I can do all things. I am working in your life at every moment. I never leave you abandoned. Take this opportunity to get closer to Me.

    It is in your trials you are taught how to trust. Do not curse the dark nights. Come to Me and let Me light your way. Take each trial as an opportunity to get closer to Me. Ascend the ladder to trust in the Lord. You develop trust a step at a time. Trust must be developed by you. Pray that you will learn all the lessons on trust I am sending you.

    You are so favored, My little sweet one. I love you. I love you. I love you. Come to Me weary and leave carefree. Only I can take a burdened heart and give it rest. Do not go to your brothers and complain. Keep reading My letters to you (December 30, 1993). Know which letters are those that set you free of worry.

Note: In His December 30 letter He said, "It is in acceptance of all things that you are drawn closer to Me. Do not try to throw back into My face the little opportunity for grace you receive. Child, I am ever by your side and I am ever teaching you. Know that My hand is in everything you are experiencing. I am vigilant and by your side. Nothing happens to you that I have not consented to. I love you. Trust in Me."

R. Jesus, I trust in you!

Jesus: Pray the Chaplet of Divine Mercy. I am there with you. Turn to Me. Turn to Me alone and I will give you rest. Oh, you, who are heavily burdened, I will give you rest!

Messenger:        He wanted his name put in the front of all

                        function of the Movement he said is to

                            we received the loan on the building.

                        From the building we try to get people all
                            over the world to pray the prayers
                            Jesus gave Fr. Carter to pray for the
                            priests, the Church and the world.

                        Also we do what we can to get them to pray 
                            the rosary and live a deeper consecration 
                            to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary and pray 
                            the morning offering.

                        Father wanted the prayers in at least 8
                            languages, but we have them in 5 with
                            the Imprimatur. He worked on this.

                        We have prayer groups all over the world
                            praying these prayers daily at 6:20
                            for the priests, the Church and the world.

  


     

    From today's Mass

Ezekiel 37: 12-14

So, prophesy. Say to them, "The Lord Yahweh says this: I am now going to open your graves; I shall raise you from your graves, my people, and lead you back to the soil of Israel. And you will know that I am Yahweh, when I open your graves and raise you from your graves, my people, and put my spirit in you, and you revive, and I resettle you on your own soil. Then you will know that I, Yahweh, have spoken and done this–declares the Lord Yahweh." ’

   


  

DISCERNED BY FR. CARTER 

Message from Ascension Thursday
May 21, 1998

Jesus speaks:  (with great emotion)  COME OUT OF YOUR TOMBS, COME OUT I CALL YOU!!!!  I have imparted to you knowledge of myself, transforming your heart and soul to be more likened to mine.

    I give you messages after the reception of the Eucharist for it is then I am most one with you. Put aside the thoughts of burgers and what have you in your minds and listen to Me you earthly beings.

    Come out of your tombs, come out I call to you who slumber and sleep and do not hear the voice of the Mighty One. Your are like the dead that need to be raised. A trumpet horn blaring would not waken a man who is blind from birth. Only the Lord will unlock the minds of the senseless men, so foolish, but oh how I do indeed love them so.

    Come out I tell you, I call you, in your sleepy state with scales in your eyes you do not see. If these scales were removed and a fresh lens graphed on the already existing eye, the men may see then clearly that I speak in these messages to bring about the Reign of My Heart and the triumph of the wailing woman's Heart on the earth.

    I came, I gave the gifts and the world slept. My little ones, the apostles slept in the garden when my hour was at hand.

    Oh my shanty little town, you are stuck indeed, in your ways. You walk the streets as blindmen and I shout to you.

    My earth, come out of your tombs, come out and live a life rooted deeply in My Heart.

Messenger: I was in the cage, it was a prison held on all sides by bars, I cried, I screamed, I felt no way to escape and low and behold I turned and where I had thought I was totally enclosed, a whole wall was not even there and I gaily walked into the free night and the sun followed me as I walked.

Jesus speaks: Your earth is enclosed in a wall of their own making. They have put up walls to enclose themselves. They have traveled around in their little boxes and spit at the freedom that I wished to give them.

    Freedom is in living according to God's will. Freedom is in Me.

    Talk of chains, for you have some. You have bars and are enclosed in your stone or brick houses. A mighty fortress is your dwelling, you think. A mighty fortress is in the walls of My Heart. I am the gateway that leads to freedom. I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus, the Holy One of the Virgin Israel. I am the gateway to heaven. I am God!

Messenger: As I unite with Him in the most intimate experiences in the Eucharist, I become one in His desires and what He wants, I become more as He is. He is the life, He is the resurrection, He is God.

    I become more in Him, His desires are my desires, the Father's Plan is imprinted in my soul during the Mass and the reception of the Eucharist and before the tabernacle. I am transformed immensely in those moments after Communion to being alive in Him.

God the Father: I am God, you are man, I have given My Son Jesus to you to unite your soul to Me. I am the Father, He is the First Born from the dead. Life will abound in heaven and on earth.

    God has visited His people and now He Reigns. He has ransomed them with the Blood of the Lamb.

Excerpt from September 24, 1998

Messenger:  Sometime between Ascension Thursday, May 21, 1998 and Pentecost, May 31, 1998.

    I saw a vision of an open door, the light within it resembled the light of the vision of March 26, 1996 that can be found in the Apostles’ Manual (p. 34-36).

    The open door was glistening with this reflective golden color mirror-like light. I cannot describe, as I could not describe concerning the 3 main visions, the first being March 26, 1996.

    The closest light I can describe to this is the sun reflecting on the water at Tom’s farm but this too leaves an emptiness to its description.

    There was a little white sheep at the bottom of the open, glistening door and the little sheep hobbled over a small threshold and went in.

    The door was rounded on the top, no corners, like a semi-circle on the top, and the wall surrounding this door was black. The light I describe was within this door and peered out to me in the vision.

    I heard our Lord over and over again cry out during this period, "Come out of your tombs, dead, dead, dead, you are dead."

    I heard the words similar to the message of May 21, 1998.

    I was walled in on all sides – BARS – a prison of my own making. I turned and there was a wall missing and I gaily walked into the free night and the sun followed me as I walked.

    I hear Jesus speak: "I am the gateway that leads to freedom."

    I know the sea of glass from the vision of March 26, 1996. I know the open door from the vision.

    I know the Power, I know the Intimate Burning Heart of Jesus in the Mass.

Romans 8: 8-11

and those who live by their natural inclinations can never be pleasing to God. You, however, live not by your natural inclinations, but by the Spirit, since the Spirit of God has made a home in you. Indeed, anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him. But when Christ is in you, the body is dead because of sin but the spirit is alive because you have been justified; and if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead has made his home in you, then he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will give life to your own mortal bodies through his Spirit living in you.

  


                        

John 11: 1-45

VI: JESUS MOVES TOWARDS HIS DEATH

The resurrection of Lazarus

There was a man named Lazarus of Bethany, the village of Mary and her sister, Martha, and he was ill. It was the same Mary, the sister of the sick man Lazarus, who anointed the Lord with ointment and wiped his feet with her hair. The sisters sent this message to Jesus, ‘Lord, the man you love is ill.’ On receiving the message, Jesus said, ‘This sickness will not end in death, but it is for God’s glory so that through it the Son of God may be glorified.’

    Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus, yet when he heard that he was ill he stayed where he was for two more days before saying to the disciples, ‘Let us go back to Judaea.’ The disciples said, ‘Rabbi, it is not long since the Jews were trying to stone you; are you going back there again?’ Jesus replied:

            Are there not twelve hours in the day? 
            No one who walks in the daytime stumbles, 
            having the light of this world to see by; 
            anyone who walks around at night stumbles, 
            having no light as a guide.

    He said that and then added, ‘Our friend Lazarus is at rest; I am going to wake him.’ The disciples said to him, ‘Lord, if he is at rest he will be saved.’ Jesus was speaking of the death of Lazarus, but they thought that by ‘rest’ he meant ‘sleep’; so Jesus put it plainly, ‘Lazarus is dead; and for your sake I am glad I was not there because now you will believe. But let us go to him.’ Then Thomas—known as the Twin—said to the other disciples, ‘Let us also go to die with him.’

    On arriving, Jesus found that Lazarus had been in the tomb for four days already. Bethany is only about two miles from Jerusalem, and many Jews had come to Martha and Mary to comfort them about their brother. When Martha heard that Jesus was coming she went to meet him. Mary remained sitting in the house. Martha said to Jesus, ‘Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died, but even now I know that God will grant whatever you ask of him.’ Jesus said to her, ‘Your brother will rise again.’ Martha said, ‘I know he will rise again at the resurrection on the last day.’ Jesus said:

            I am the resurrection. 
            Anyone who believes in me, even though that person dies, will live,
            and whoever lives and believes in me 
            will never die. 
            Do you believe this?

‘Yes, Lord,’ she said, ‘I believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God, the one who was to come into this world.’

    When she had said this, she went and called her sister Mary, saying in a low voice, ‘The Master is here and wants to see you.’ Hearing this, Mary got up quickly and went to him. Jesus had not yet come into the village; he was still at the place where Martha had met him. When the Jews who were in the house comforting Mary saw her get up so quickly and go out, they followed her, thinking that she was going to the tomb to weep there.

    Mary went to Jesus, and as soon as she saw him she threw herself at his feet, saying, ‘Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died.’ At the sight of her tears, and those of the Jews who had come with her, Jesus was greatly distressed, and with a profound sigh he said, ‘Where have you put him?’ They said, ‘Lord, come and see.’ Jesus wept; and the Jews said, ‘See how much he loved him!’ But there were some who remarked, ‘He opened the eyes of the blind man. Could he not have prevented this man’s death?’ Sighing again, Jesus reached the tomb: it was a cave with a stone to close the opening. Jesus said, ‘Take the stone away.’ Martha, the dead man’s sister, said to him, ‘Lord, by now he will smell; this is the fourth day since he died.’ Jesus replied, ‘Have I not told you that if you believe you will see the glory of God?’ So they took the stone away. Then Jesus lifted up his eyes and said:

            Father, I thank you for hearing my prayer.
            I myself knew that you hear me always, 
            but I speak 
            for the sake of all these who are standing around me, 
            so that they may believe it was you who sent me.

    When he had said this, he cried in a loud voice, ‘Lazarus, come out!’ The dead man came out, his feet and hands bound with strips of material, and a cloth over his face. Jesus said to them, ‘Unbind him, let him go free.’

The Jewish leaders decide on the death of Jesus

Many of the Jews who had come to visit Mary, and had seen what he did, believed in him,

   


                           

March 17, 2002 message continues

Messenger:         Today I went to Mass and the priest has been
                        a hospital chaplain for about 20 years at
                        several hospitals.

                            He spoke about his experience the other
                        day in the hospital.

                            He said he was praying for a lady about
                        to die and he put his hand on her head, he said
                        his hand got so hot and she died right then.
                        Her heart stopped beating. Her soul was going
                        to God. Right after that he went to another
                        man named Ed he had given him the last rights
                        3 days before.

                        The family was praying for him to go, for
                            all was done that could be done for him.

                        The family and the priest were gathered in 
                            prayer and the priest prayed "Ed go up to
                            heaven".

                        The priest said he blessed the man and
                            left the room, almost immediately the
                            man died.

                        The priest said we are going somewhere
                            forever.

                        Think about heaven and hell.

                        Then he quoted

  


   

1 Corinthians 2: 9

...What no eye has seen and no ear has heard, what the mind of man cannot visualise; all that God has prepared for those who love him;

Messenger:     He told another story of a lady that said
                            she saw a tunnel and light and
                            heard the doctors working on her
                            on the operating table.

                        She recovered, she then said this.

                        All she worried about before her experience
                            was her bridge game and her fingernails.

                        After that experience she realized how
                            she hadn't given her life loving others
                            as she should.

                        She began working in soup kitchens and
                            showing others much love.

                        The priest said there is a deep connection
                            between what we do here and
                            where we are going for all eternity.

                            Our life hereafter depends on
                                how we love here.

                        He quoted something Fr. Carter used
                            in a talk from St. Ignatius.

“Lord teach me to be generous, teach me to serve you as you deserve, to give and not to count the cost, to fight and not to heed the wounds, to toil and not to seek for rest, to labor and not to ask for reward save that of knowing that I do your will.”

Messenger:     He said the fringe benefits of loving in
                            this world are out of this world.

                        This priest is very holy. He deals with
                            dying children every day.

                        A priest can be such a powerful witness.
                            I know a young man who said he decided
                            he would remain a Catholic because
                            of the witness of this holy priest.
                            The young man was struggling with
                            the things he was taught and if
                            he should be a Catholic.

                        Another time years later the youth said,
                            this priest meant more to his spiritual
                            upbringing than anyone.

                        A priest has a great gift given to him by God.
                        A holy priest who is sincere and
                            wanting only to further the
                            kingdom can be such a light to
                            a youth in this troubled world.

                        Oh please listen to the cry of Our Lord
                            and the message given to Fr. Carter.

                        Help us. Please begin these prayer chapters.

Excerpt from Newsletter September/October 1996
"God Is Love"

    He hung upon a cross on a hill called Calvary. Death was near. How much Jesus had already suffered! He had been brutally scourged. Much of His sacred body was a bloody, open wound. He had been derisively crowned with thorns. In a terribly weakened condition, He carried the heavy cross to the hill of Golgotha. There He was stripped of His garments and mercilessly nailed to the cross.

    Truly the Good Shepherd had laid down His life for His sheep. That magnificent Heart, overflowing with love for His Father and all of us, had beat its last.

Excerpt from Priestly Newsletter 1998 - ISSUE FOUR

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

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

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

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

                                he did.

                            He loved the priests so much.

                            He loved the Church.

                            He loved the religious.

                        My sister's birthday was yesterday.

                        After 26 years in the Sisters of

                            the Blessed Mother's Birthday.

                        When she was depressed in the convent after
                            about 25 years she was advised to get
                            shock treatments to the brain and she 
                            received triple the normal dose in the hospital.
                            Then on her 26th anniversary she
                                committed suicide.

                        When she went in the convent they wore big
                            habits, big head coverings etc.

                        Later many sisters wore colored dresses, red
                            etc. and lived in apartments.

                        When she went in, the convents were packed.
                        Then there were hardly any sisters and
                            convents were closing.

                        When my brother went to the old seminary,
                            Mt. St. Mary's, it was packed. That was
                            the same seminary he went to, in the sixties
                            where Mary appeared to me daily July 5, 1994 -

Homily delivered by Father Carter 

in China, Indiana

September 8, 2000

       


   

Matthew 1:18-23

Joseph adopts Jesus as his son

This is how Jesus Christ came to be born. His mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph; but before they came to live together she was found to be with child through the Holy Spirit. Her husband Joseph, being an upright man and wanting to spare her disgrace, decided to divorce her informally. He had made up his mind to do this when suddenly the angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, ‘Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because she has conceived what is in her by the Holy Spirit. She will give birth to a son and you must name him Jesus, because he is the one who is to save his people from their sins.’ Now all this took place to fulfil what the Lord had spoken through the prophet:

Look! the virgin is with child
    and will give birth to a son
whom they will call Immanuel,

a name which means ‘God–is–with–us’.

  

Father Carter's homily

    We notice that the Church in Her liturgy for the celebration of the birthday, the Birth of Mary, immediately puts her with Jesus:

    "She will give birth to a son and you must name him Jesus, because he is the one who is to save his people from their sins." (Mt 1:21) – words from today's Gospel.

    And so the Church reminds us that Mary was born for the sake of Jesus. Again, in celebrating her birth, the Church links her very, very directly with Jesus. Yes, this is the reason for her birth: to be Mother of Jesus, and in doing that, everything else about her takes its proper place.

    And just as Mary was dedicated entirely to Jesus and to His cause, we in giving her a birthday present of the highest value can only promise her, "Mary, as you were completely dedicated to Jesus, help me be completely dedicated to Him. You were His first and perfect disciple. Teach me to imitate you in the putting on of Christ."

Messenger:      The summer 2001 was very difficult
                            for our rosary makers.
                            We didn't have any beads.

                            All summer we could not get money
                       even for the rosary beads for the
                       rosary makers.
                           When Father Carter was sick October, 2000
                       I think we had about 180,000 orders
                       for rosaries from the Catholic Schools
                       in the U.S. (We did fill all the orders as
                       soon as possible.)
                           Last summer (2001) we just didn't
                       even have funds for beads for the rosaries
                       so we could make them for the school
                       month October, 2001 and I knew we would
                       not be supplying the schools when they
                       called.
                           Here is a message from Our Lady of Fatima
                        October 13, 1917. She said we must pray the
                        rosary.

     


    

Excerpt from the Spirituality of Fatima

by Father Edward Carter, S.J. 

            October 13, 1917

                In her message that day, Our Blessed Mother told the children:

    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 any more, for He is already too grievously offended by the sins of men. People must say the Rosary. Let them continue saying it every day.(17)

                             your world will be affected.

                        Again I repeat, these revelations and

                            materials are for the world.

                        Mary appears the Lady clothed in gold

                            for the world.

                        My movement is to help the priests, the
                            Church and the world, it is a gift.

                        Because of My movement, the world is a
                            better place.

                        You will feel the effects if the printing stops.

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

I appear to you, my children, on a (former) 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. 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. Give it to as many people as you can. I am Mary, your Mother. Please circulate my Rosary Book.

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.

Excerpt from The Spirituality of Fatima

by Father Carter, S.J.

October 13, 1917

    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 any more, for He is already too grievously offended by the sins of men. People must say the Rosary. Let them continue saying it every day.(17)


NOTE:

17. For background material on Fatima, I am particularly indebted to 
    Our Lady of Fatima's Peace Plan from Heaven

77th Anniversary of Mary's appearance at Fatima

The Birth of the Full Ministries
of the Shepherds of Christ

    "I wish to share with you part of a message which Jesus gave us on October 13, 1994. The message tells us about the expansion of the Shepherds of Christ movement:

    'My beloved priest-companion, today I come to you with another mission. I am 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 Mother's 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.'

    "Jesus has told us that Shepherds of Christ Ministries includes: the priestly newsletter, Shepherds of Christ, Shepherds of Christ Associates prayer chapters, various publications, including books, whatever else Our Lord directs us to undertake.

    "As members of Shepherds of Christ Associates, you are an extremely important part of Shepherds of Christ Ministries. You have given great joy to the Heart of Jesus by responding to His invitation to become members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. As He draws you closer to His Heart and to His Mother's Heart as Associates members, He will fill you with an ever-increasing experience of His love, peace, and joy."

September 8, 2001 message continues

Mary speaks:   I want the Bishops to consecrate their dioceses
                        to my Immaculate Heart. My Son Jesus
                        wants the Bishops to consecrate their dioceses
                        to His Sacred Heart.

Jesus speaks:   It is My desire that the Bishops of America and
                        the Bishops of the world entrust their dioceses 
                        to My Most Sacred Heart and the Heart of My
                        Mother Mary. I desire they encourage
                        the devotion to Our two Hearts in all
                        dioceses and all Churches. I desire
                        this with all My Heart. I am the Sacred
                        Heart of Jesus, you will not have peace
                        in the world until more listen to Me
                        and comply to these wishes. I want to 
                        be the King and Center of all Hearts.

                   I desire the picture of My Heart and My Mother's
                        heart and or statues be placed in the churches.
                        When a Church is consecrated/enthroned to
                        Our two Hearts they will grow in greater
                        holiness.
                        I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
                        I will Reign on the earth.

                            Why are you so resistant to listen to Me
                                and follow My requests.

                            How do I deliver a message to you?

                            You will not even take notice of the
                                sign given on the building in
                                Florida.

                            The Fatima message must be observed.

                            You must make reparation to Our
                                two Hearts.

                            I give to you the Shepherds of Christ Prayers.

                            I directed Father Carter how to compile
                                these prayers for the priests, and the
                                renewal of the Church and the world....

                            I ask you to help Me get My Newsletter II Book
                                to the 75,000 priests before Christmas, 
                                I desire all efforts be made to include a 
                                prayer manual.

                            My desire for the 4 Newsletters after Fr. Carter's
                                death this year 2001 have not been met.

                            I beg you to pray fervently for the donor who
                                can help to accomplish this task (the Priestly
                                Newsletter Book II
) and all involved. Pray
                                fervently, pray hourly if possible.

Messenger:         Jesus also indicated at some point He desired the
                                Priestly Newsletter Book II sent to all Jesuits
                                and all Bishops in the world. 

Jesus speaks:      This mailing could majorly help to change the
                                face of the earth and help bring to completion
                                the mission Mary began at Fatima.

                            You do not hear the voice of the Good Shepherd
   
                                    in My writings and works.

                            You are not open.

                            You will not even look at Mary on the building.

                            What sign would get you to take notice?

Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus

My dear fellow Associate Members,

Jesus is calling special apostles to join a new division of the Shepherds of Christ Movement. Here is a message from Jesus given to Father Carter:

My beloved priest-companion, I am requesting that a new prayer movement be started under the direction of Shepherds of Christ Ministries. I am asking for volunteers who are willing to pray before the Blessed Sacrament for one hour, twice-weekly. Members of the Shepherds of Christ prayer chapters, as well as others, are to be invited to join this movement.

These apostles are to pray for the intentions I am giving you. For part of the hour they are to use the prayers of the Shepherds of Christ Associates Handbook. They may spend the rest of the hour as they so choose.

I will use this new prayer movement within My Shepherds of Christ Ministries in a powerful way to help in the renewal of My Church and the world. I will give great graces to those who join this movement. The name, Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus, is to be given to this movement.

I am inviting My beloved Rita Ring to be coordinator for this activity.

I pour out the great love of My Sacred Heart to all. I am Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the flock.

    This is indeed a special calling for us to unite in one heart with His Eucharistic Heart and pray for the following intentions:

  1. For the spread of the devotion to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary culminating in the reign of the Sacred Heart and the triumph of the Immaculate Heart.
  2. For the Pope.
  3. For all bishops of the world.
  4. For all priests.
  5. For all sisters and brothers in the religious life.
  6. For all members of the Shepherds of Christ Movement, and for the spread of this movement to the world.
  7. For all members of the Catholic Church.
  8. For all members of the human family.
  9. For all souls in purgatory.

Excerpt from Tell My People

Age of the Two Hearts

Jesus speaks:  "My beloved priest-companion, I have allowed you to experience in extraordinary fashion the riches contained in My Heart and My Mother's Heart. I desire that you tell all My people about these riches. I desire that My people consecrate themselves to My Sacred Heart and to Mary's Immaculate Heart. My people are living in the beginnings of the age of the Two Hearts.

    "After the time of the purification is completed, this new era of the Church and the world will become firmly established. This era will be characterized by the triumph of the Immaculate Heart and the reign of My Sacred Heart. All those who consecrate themselves to My Heart and to My Mother's Heart will help to establish this glorious new age. I am Lord and Master. Please listen to My urgent request. Within Our Hearts you will experience the love and security, the peace and the joy, which you all desire. I love My people with a tremendous love, and in My love I give them this message!"

To whom it may concern,
  

    We circulate the Priestly Newsletter that goes to 75,000 priests in the world. This has been circulated since 1994 at the direction of Fr. Edward Carter, S.J. who had a doctorate in Theology and taught at Xavier University for over thirty years and author of eighteen books on the spiritual life and many other various publications.

    Our primary purpose is to circulate this Newsletter. We are now sending three years of Newsletters in a book of 342 pages to 75,000 priests in the United States and 90 foreign countries. A special Newsletter is enclosed with Father Carter's powerful writing on Grace (2001 issue 1). This writing is also available on tape and on disc.

    Our coequal purpose is to circulate prayer manuals Father Carter compiled for prayer chapters praying for the priests, the Church and
the world.

    All of our printing and postage costs so much money.

    We operate from the Virgin Mary building in Clearwater, Florida, pictures are enclosed. We use the building to spread materials and rosaries
to encourage people to pray for the priests, the Church and the world.

    We also have a church we received from the diocese in China, Indiana where we distribute our materials and pray before the Blessed Sacrament hourly and about two hours or more at 6:20 every day. Monthly adoration before the exposed Eucharist is held for our members for 48 hours on the 12th of each month to the 14th.

    We have a third center in Morrow, Ohio which is our communication center and mailing address.

    We circulate rosaries handmade to Catholic schools all over the United States and meditation sheets and consecration cards. We try to send scapulars too when we have them. We supply many beads to our rosary makers for this.

    We had difficulty all last summer securing funds for beads for our rosary makers. We were not able to send the 100,000 or more rosaries we usually send in October and May because of funds.

    We need $10,000 every month for the loan on the Virgin Mary building. We pray nightly there usually for about two hours or more at 6:20. We pray all through the day there, hourly, many times before the image. A big prayer meeting is held on the 5th of the month. Prayers are prayed for about 4 hours for the priests, the Church and the world. We broadcast to at least 8 states and all join in the prayers, including Morrow and China.

    We have a nursing home ministry and a prison ministry. We supply coloring books of the rosary mysteries and the Mass to children.

    We desperately need funds for the printing and the rosary making operation and all the postage. Bishops from foreign countries beg for rosaries and prayer sheets with the Shepherds of Christ Prayers.

    Now we are struggling with the monthly rent on the building and the postage for the foreign mailing of the Priestly Newsletter Book II.

    We always need money for the rosary beads for the schools and the Virgin Mary building.

    We also do a Holy Spirit Novena, but the little book has been out of print for some time because of lack of funds. Teachers like to use it for confirmation. We have prayer chapters using it daily all over the world.

    We want to circulate pictures of the crucifix and Mary's image on the building, we are unable to do this because of lack of funds. Enclosed are pictures of the crucifix and the Virgin Mary building.

    A very important part of our Movement is trying to get people to say the Morning Offering. Here is a card we distribute extensively, especially to Nursing Homes and school children.
   

  

  
    Here is a short form of consecration to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary that we circulate extensively.
  

  

   
    Can you help us. It is a real shame to not even have rent on the building Mary appears on.

    We need to tell the world about the Mass. This is another important aspect of our ministry. We have so many writings about the Mass. Mass Book I with the Imprimatur—and all Fr. Carter's writings and many other writings discerned by Fr Carter before his death. 

    It is a shame with all the money in the world not to be able to get the rosary beads to the rosary makers for school children who want them to pray the rosary.

    Our movement is trying to do what Our Lady told us to do at Fatima for peace in the world.

    Can you help us?
