                From Mary

                Oh America — Land of Plenty
                    America — high mountains
                    Come oh America see the sun over
                        your beautiful waters

                    You are blessed America with
                        snows and deserts —
                        sunny skies and moon lighted
                        nights

                America I give you myself —
                    I am the Lady of Clearwater —
                    Your waters come close to the land
                        and the coastlands so
                        beautiful

                    beauty America beneath your
                        oceans and seas, your
                        lakes — your land of love —

                America you are close to my heart and to
                    the Heart of my Son, Jesus —

                America, God the Father allowed me to
                    appear to you —

                Your light houses tell you America —
                    of how powerful light is in
                    a dark night

                America your cities, many have turned
                    dark — turn back America —
                    to the light — see the light against
                    the darkness

                Light America is found in obedience
                    to the commandments of God —

                Oh America — let your light shine
                    to the world —

                America — love — love as God intends —
                    love God and keep His commandments
                    America —
                    See the Light against the darkness
                    and disobedience America

                Hear me, America, I am Mother of America
                I am your Mother of Snow and of Rain
                    and of Clearwater America — rolling
                    hills of green and then golden
                    America —

                    I appeared in sunny Florida for
                you all to see —

                America, God the Father allowed me to
                    appear in Florida — Jesus gives you
                    His special waters

                America — you are richly blessed — America
                Oh the waters of Florida — so beautiful for
                    you, the inlands —

                    CLEARWATER

   

 

                    Oh my children how can you be given such
                beauty as the state of Florida and you did
                not stop to notice me — the Lady of Clearwater —
                the Lady Clothed as the Sun

           

November 6, 2000

 

                    You have been given such beauty in
                your waters surrounding you — the life
                beneath the ocean — the beauty of the
                seagulls and birds in abundance —
                God has given you this clear water —
                the blues and greens the smell
                of the waters —

                    My children, if God has given you
                such beauty — how can you ignore
                Him for your few years here below —

                I appeared by day and by night 

Our Lady of Clearwater Florida

                How can you ignore this sign given —
                    the lives changed —

                The beauty of these waters surrounding
                    Florida, inlands, sandy beaches,
                    flowers, foliage, birds and fish
                    and corals beneath the sea —

                How do you ignore the Creator of it
                    all

 

 

 

                How my children can you ignore your
                    God —

                    So they ignored my image and March 1, 2004
                my image head was destroyed —

 

 

                    Beginning August 13, 2004 — 5 months later
                the hurricanes came like a belt over
                Florida

                    A belt over Florida —

                    Oh my children

                    Florida is surrounded by water
                    And I appeared there because God
                        the Father wanted you to know
                        the scripture of Noah and the
                        rainbow, but you ignored
                        me, my children

    

Genesis 7: 11-24

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

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

    Then Yahweh shut him in.

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

  

Genesis 9: 8-17

   God spoke as follows to Noah and his sons, ‘I am now establishing my covenant with you and with your descendants to come, and with every living creature that was with you: birds, cattle and every wild animal with you; everything that came out of the ark, every living thing on earth. And I shall maintain my covenant with you: that never again shall all living things be destroyed by the waters of a flood, nor shall there ever again be a flood to devastate the earth.’

   ‘And this’, God said, ‘is the sign of the covenant which I now make between myself and you and every living creature with you for all ages to come: I now set my bow in the clouds and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth. When I gather the clouds over the earth and the bow appears in the clouds, I shall recall the covenant between myself and you and every living creature, in a word all living things, and never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all living things. When the bow is in the clouds I shall see it and call to mind the eternal covenant between God and every living creature on earth, that is, all living things.’

   ‘That’, God told Noah, ‘is the sign of the covenant I have established between myself and all living things on earth.’

                Southern Florida why did you

                I cry for my little children —

                I am Mary — Mother blue, clothed in
                    the blue of waters and sky —
                    crying for the children being
                    aborted —

                Pray these Rosaries from our Hearts

Psalm 27: 1, 4, 13-14

Yahweh is my light and my salvation, 
    whom should I fear? 
Yahweh is the fortress of my life, 
    whom should I dread?

One thing I ask of Yahweh, 
    one thing I seek: 
to dwell in Yahweh’s house 
    all the days of my life, 
to enjoy the sweetness of Yahweh, 
    to seek out his temple.

This I believe: I shall see the goodness of Yahweh, 
    in the land of the living. 
Put your hope in Yahweh, be strong, let your heart be bold, 
    put your hope in Yahweh.

   

                Mary speaks:

                    One week after the Assumption you
                        celebrate my Queenship

                    I am the Queen of heaven and earth
                    I am Mary, full of grace

                    I appeared a lady clothed as the
                        sun

 

 

                    I am Mary, Mother of Jesus
                    I am Mary, Virgin —
                    I am your Queen
                    I am the Immaculate Conception

  

   

Genesis 3: 9-15, 20

But Yahweh God called to the man. 'Where are you?' he asked. 'I heard the sound of you in the garden,' he replied. 'I was afraid because I was naked, so I hid.' 'Who told you that you were naked?' he asked. 'Have you been eating from the tree I forbade you to eat?' The man replied, 'It was the woman you put with me; she gave me some fruit from the tree, and I ate it.' Then Yahweh God said to the woman, 'Why did you do that?' The woman replied, 'The snake tempted me and I ate.'

Then Yahweh God said to the snake, 'Because you have done this,

    Accursed be you
    of all animals wild and tame!
    On your belly you will go
    and on dust you will feed
    as long as you live.
    I shall put enmity
    between you and the woman,
    and between your offspring and hers;
    it will bruise your head
    and you will strike its heel.'

The man named his wife 'Eve' because she was the mother of all those who live.

   

Isaiah 9: 1-6 

The people that walked in darkness 
    have seen a great light; 
on the inhabitants of a country 
    in shadow dark as death 
        light has blazed forth. 
You have enlarged the nation, 
    you have increased its joy; 
they rejoice before you 
    as people rejoice at harvest time, 
as they exult 
    when they are dividing the spoils. 

For the yoke that weighed on it, 
    the bar across its shoulders, 
the rod of its oppressor, 
these you have broken 
    as on the day of Midian. 

For all the footgear 
    clanking over the ground 
and all the clothing rolled in blood, 
will be burnt, will be food for the flames. 

For a son has been born for us, 
a son has been given to us, 
and dominion has been laid 
    on his shoulders; 
and this is the name he has been given, 
‘Wonder–Counsellor, Mighty–God, 
Eternal–Father, Prince–of–Peace’ 
to extend his dominion 
    in boundless peace, 
over the throne of David 
    and over his kingdom 
to make it secure and sustain it 
in fair judgement and integrity. 
From this time onwards and for ever, 
the jealous love of Yahweh Sabaoth 
    will do this.

   

Isaiah 7: 10-14

Yahweh spoke to Ahaz again and said: 

Ask Yahweh your God for a sign, 
either in the depths of Sheol 
    or in the heights above. 

    But Ahaz said, ‘I will not ask. I will not put Yahweh to the test.’
    He then said: 

    Listen now, House of David: 
    are you not satisfied 
        with trying human patience 
    that you should try 
        my God’s patience too? 
    The Lord will give you a sign in any case: 
    It is this: the young woman is with child 
    and will give birth to a son 
    whom she will call Immanuel.

 

Revelation 11: 19

    Then the sanctuary of God in heaven opened, and the ark of the covenant could be seen inside it. Then came flashes of lightning, peals of thunder and an earthquake and violent hail.

 

Revelation 12: 1-6, 10

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 labor, 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 scepter, 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.

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.

 

Psalm 45: 11-17

then the king will fall in love with your beauty; 
he is your lord, bow down before him.
The daughter of Tyre will court your favour with gifts, 
and the richest of peoples with jewels set in gold.

Clothed in brocade, the king’s daughter is led within 
to the king with the maidens of her retinue; 
her companions are brought to her,

they enter the king’s palace with joy and rejoicing.
Instead of your ancestors you will have sons; 
you will make them rulers over the whole world.

I will make your name endure from generation to generation, 
so nations will sing your praise for ever and ever.

 

Romans 5: 12, 17-19

Well then; it was through one man that sin came into the world, and through sin death, and thus death has spread through the whole human race because everyone has sinned.

It was by one man’s offence that death came to reign over all, but how much greater the reign in life of those who receive the fullness of grace and the gift of saving justice, through the one man, Jesus Christ. One man’s offence brought condemnation on all humanity; and one man’s good act has brought justification and life to all humanity. Just as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by one man’s obedience are many to be made upright.

 

Hail Mary

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the Fruit of thy womb, Jesus.  Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

   

 

Matthew 1: 1-16, 18-23

Roll of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, son of David, son of Abraham: 

Abraham fathered Isaac, 
Isaac fathered Jacob, 
Jacob fathered Judah and his brothers, 
Judah fathered Perez and Zerah, 
    whose mother was Tamar, 
Perez fathered Hezron, 
Hezron fathered Ram, 
Ram fathered Amminadab, 
Amminadab fathered Nahshon, 
Nahshon fathered Salmon, 
Salmon fathered Boaz, 
    whose mother was Rahab, 
Boaz fathered Obed, 
    whose mother was Ruth, 
Obed fathered Jesse; 
and Jesse fathered King David. 

David fathered Solomon, 
    whose mother had been Uriah’s wife, 
Solomon fathered Rehoboam, 
Rehoboam fathered Abijah, 
Abijah fathered Asa, 
Asa fathered Jehoshaphat, 
Jehoshaphat fathered Joram, 
Joram fathered Uzziah, 
Uzziah fathered Jotham, 
Jotham fathered Ahaz, 
Ahaz fathered Hezekiah, 
Hezekiah fathered Manasseh, 
Manasseh fathered Amon, 
Amon fathered Josiah; 
and Josiah fathered Jechoniah 
    and his brothers. 
Then the deportation to Babylon 
    took place. 

After the deportation to Babylon: 
Jechoniah fathered Shealtiel, 
Shealtiel fathered Zerubbabel, 
Zerubbabel fathered Abiud, 
Abiud fathered Eliakim, 
Eliakim fathered Azor, 
Azor fathered Zadok, 
Zadok fathered Achim, 
Achim fathered Eliud, 
Eliud fathered Eleazar, 
Eleazar fathered Matthan, 
Matthan fathered Jacob; 
and Jacob fathered Joseph 
    the husband of Mary; 
of her was born Jesus 
    who is called Christ. 

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’.

Luke 1: 46-55

And Mary said:

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

Lovely Lady dressed in blue,
    teach me how to pray.
God was just your little Boy,
    tell me what to say.

Did you lift Him up sometimes,
    gently on your knee?
Did you sing to Him the way
    mother does to me?

Did you ever try telling Him
    stories of the world?
And oh, did He cry?

Do you think He cares
    if I tell Him things?
Just little things that happen.

And do angels wings make a noise?
    Can He hear me if I speak low?
Does He understand me now?
    Tell me for you know.

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

from the Rosary of August 27, 1996

Mary:  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.

FORMED IN THE WOMB OF MARY

In order to grow more deeply in my love of Christ, I must unite to the heart of Mary. As Christ was formed in the womb of Mary, we are constantly being formed in her heart through the action of the Holy Spirit, she is a Spiritual Mother. I am constantly being formed in her heart through the action of the Holy Spirit.

Divinity and humanity meet in the womb of Mary. She carried the Christ Child under her heart. The union of the two Hearts began when the Holy Spirit came upon her. She was filled with grace. To house the God-made-Man, she must be full of grace.

Do you ponder on our own graced soul? Do we think of our graced soul after reception of the Eucharist?

THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION

Written at Mass:

As Father read the Gospel, I was so connected with each word and filled with such emotion. I was so close to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, so deep in His love.

Every thought of Mary radiated in my body. To hear her name made me want to cry. I love her life. I love Jesus' life. I love the rosary. The rosary is alive in me.

MARY OUR MOTHER

Mary is the Mother of God. God the Father sent His Only Begotten Son.

Mary is conceived immaculate. To not recognize this is to not realize the magnificence of God. God could not come in sin. God, Who is all good, could not be conceived in the body of a person tainted with original sin.

"'Father,' he said, 'if you are willing, take this cup away from me. Nevertheless, let your will be done, not mine.'" (Lk. 22:42)

I see that God is all-powerful. I am a little piece of the puzzle. I am not the whole puzzle. My love of Jesus and the Mass is why I write this book.

Mary, conceived without sin, is the New Eve. Mary was made our Mother under the cross. Mary is the Mother of our spiritual life. I have felt the pain of Mary under the cross, the pain for her little, lost children.

Mary is the Mother of God. Christ took on flesh. Mary is the spouse of the Holy Spirit. She is Mary Immaculate. Jesus took on Mary's flesh and blood. To not love Mary is to not recognize His great love for us. We miss our own dignity and honor. Divinity and humanity meet in Mary.

There are five blasphemies against Mary. She has asked us to make the first Saturday devotion. Sr. Lucia ask Our Lord why there were five first Saturdays.

He revealed to her:

My daughter, the reason is simple. There are five types of offenses and blasphemies committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary:

1. Blasphemies against the Immaculate Conception.
2. Blasphemies against Her Perpetual Virginity.
3. Blasphemies against Her Divine Maternity, in refusing at the same time to recognize Her as the Mother of men.
4. The blasphemies of those who publicly seek to sow in the hearts of children indifference or scorn, or even hatred of this Immaculate Mother.
5. The offenses of those who outrage Her directly in Her holy images.
46

We must make the first Saturday devotion to make reparation to her, for the indifferences against her Immaculate Heart.

I can see the devil pushing man away from Mary! The devil knows that Mary is a link between heaven and earth. There is a great link between God and man in Mary.

We realize more the mystery of God's love for us when we see how God loved Mary.

Act of Incarnation: God unites to man. My greatest pain felt, lately, is under the cross.

Mary knows the great gift given from God to His creatures. She is our spiritual Mother. She experiences the pain of her lost children. She sees before her, her Son covered with blood.

Mary says it is because of pride they do not accept her. It is because of pride, some think Mary cannot be any higher than them. They do not recognize election.

In having this pride, many miss the great messages given from God. In having pride, we miss a major link between heaven and earth in Mary. It is the Father's will that Mary is our spiritual Mother.

We reach a deeper level in the spiritual life only in the heart of Mary. It is His will. She was chosen, sinless, the spouse of the Holy Spirit, and the Mother of God.

We can only go to the deepest chambers of the Heart of Christ through the pure and sinless heart of Mary. We are sinners. She is immaculate.

Besides the messages associated with the major Fatima apparitions, there were other revelations given by Our Lady. Before Jacinta died, she told of other messages given her [during her illness] by Mary:

"Tell them to ask grace from her, and that the Heart of Jesus wishes to be venerated together with the Immaculate Heart of Mary…"47

This last message offers us an excellent opportunity to summarize the Fatima message. It tells us "that the Heart of Jesus wishes to be venerated together with the Immaculate Heart of Mary."48

Deep spiritual maturity cannot be achieved without going through the heart of Mary. Jesus came into the world in Mary's womb.

This is the Father's will: for His Son to come into this world, for His Son to be formed in her womb. God wants us to be formed more and more into the image and likeness of Jesus in the spiritual womb of Mary. Jesus wants us to grow in Mary's heart through the Holy Spirit to deepest maturity.

Many, in their willfulness and pride, deny the Mother of God, her Immaculate Conception, and the virgin birth. It is pride, for they do not want to recognize how much God loves Mary. They are proud and/or ignorant and will not recognize another creature higher than they are.

This is how it is: the Child Jesus, God-made-Man, was conceived in the womb of Mary. He was formed in her womb. To reach higher levels of spiritual maturity, we must dwell in the heart of Mary. We are formed there through the power of the Holy Spirit to be more like Jesus. We achieve depth in our relationship with God through Mary.

"And Mary said: 'My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord" (Lk. 1:46) All of us children unite in the heart of Mary. I see such oneness between all of us as we join in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. We unite in the heart of Mary. She places us in the Heart of Jesus. There we are united with all Mary's children. He is the Light of the World. His Heart burns - a yellow glow with hot embers. Many are the children of the light. Mary is our Mother. She is calling us to be children of the light. She is Our Lady of Light.

It starts with you and me and with all His holy priests. As we consecrate our hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, we are one in Their Hearts. I give Jesus and Mary my heart, you give them your heart, we are one in Their Hearts. As the Shepherds of Christ Movement spreads throughout the world, we become one with each other as we give our hearts to Jesus and Mary. There will be one flock and one Shepherd. Father Carter is reaching the priests with the consecration in the priestly newsletter. He is reaching the sisters and religious with the consecration in the religious newsletter. He is reaching the lay people with the Shepherds of Christ Associates prayer chapters for adults and youth centered in consecration of our hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

Notes:
In February of 1996, we began a new movement, Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus. In it people volunteer two hours a week in front of the Blessed Sacrament and pray for the renewal of the Church and the world. They consecrate their hearts bi-weekly in front of the tabernacle. We are all joined together to help bring the light to others. This is the center, Jesus in the Eucharist. It is for the renewal of the Church and the world.

Mary is now Our Lady of Sorrows. Her heart was pierced with the willfulness of her children. Her heart is in great sorrow at the loss of her children. She calls us to spread the light to this world, to light up the darkness, to come and be fed by the Chief Shepherd.

The devil has waged a war against the children of the light. Children of the light are richly fed with God's love, given abundantly by Jesus in the Eucharist.

This is the plan of Fatima to reach the world. Hearts must be consecrated to the two Hearts. Fr. Carter is reaching the world in the newsletter for priests, religious, and the associates. All are consecrating their hearts. The children must be reached through the Junior Shepherds of Christ Movement. Children need to consecrate their hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. The first Saturday devotion must be observed and spread from the Center.

The Fatima messages say, that the peace or war in our country depends on our consecrating our hearts to Mary. Children must be reached with the consecration. Satan is so strong.

The Father's plan will unfold. We must live according to the will of God with love. Every one of us is given such talents. God carries out the work of redemption through our humanity. We must pray to the Holy Spirit to sanctify us and make us holy.

This is what I suffered under the cross: the sufferings for the little, lost children. Mary wants us to make reparation to her heart. Mary told Jacinta, "Tell them to ask grace from her, and that the Heart of Jesus wishes to be venerated together with the Immaculate Heart of Mary."49 By recognizing her Immaculate Conception, we are recognizing the great dignity and honor He has given to Mary, a human person.

We go to the spiritual womb, the heart of Mary, because He wills it so. The depth of our union with Him can only come about through a deeper union with her. He wills it so.

The Father chose Mary as the Mother of God. The Father chose her, from all woman, to be Jesus' Mother. She is espoused to the Holy Spirit. Such dignity that God unites to her to bring forth a Son! If God comes to us in Mary's womb, we can go to God in Mary's heart.

In realizing the immense love God has for Mary, we can realize more His immense love for us in the Eucharist, to unite with us in such union. She carried Jesus in her womb. He is no less present in us when we receive Him in Communion.

Her soul magnifies the Lord. We see how our soul is raised to such heights through His grace. We, human persons, are raised to such heights in His grace. We are created to know, love, and serve Him. We can't leave out service. For, "…he has looked upon the humiliation of his servant. Yes, from now onwards all generations will call me blessed, for the Almighty has done great things for me. Holy is his name." (Lk. 1:48-49)

Father Carter talked about spiritual childhood: the more we become like a little child, the more the Father gives Himself to us.

MARY BRINGS FORTH THE CHRIST IN ME

Written 5:30 p.m., in the Holy Spirit Chapel:

Mary, bring forth the Christ in me. She is constantly bringing forth the Christ in me. There are different degrees of possessing Christ. He wants us to love everyone as He loves them. It is so hard to love everyone after they hurt us, but sanctity is achieved by genuinely loving all. I cannot do many things…I am willing, but…He must give me the grace!

The Holy Spirit works in the spiritual womb of Mary and is bringing forth the Christ in us. She is the Mediatrix of all grace. The Holy Spirit works in her, transforming us with His grace. The Holy Spirit works wonders in the bringing forth of Christ in us.

"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." (Rv. 12:1) She is pregnant. She is the Mother of the Church. She is bringing forth the Church to a greater likeness of Christ through the Holy Spirit. She is the Ark of the Covenant. She is the Mediatrix of all grace. She carried the Christ Child. She brought Him forth through the power of the Holy Spirit. She is bringing us forth to a greater Christ-life. We are being formed in her womb through the Holy Spirit. He performs His wonders in the womb of Mary. God communicates to us through His Son. He is the Word Incarnate. He has all knowledge. In Him, we know.

The more I figure this out through the light of the Holy Spirit, the deeper I partake in this graced life, in this Christ-life, and I will know it for all eternity. I am learning, for all eternity, to deeply partake in the divine mysteries more and more. My God, I worship and adore You in Your Divinity. You have elevated my soul to such heights. To know You a little and long to know You more and more deeply-this is my thirst, my love, my portion, my cup. To know more of You, to love You more and to serve You in this world-this is my quest, to know, love, and serve You!

This is why we must dwell in Mary's heart. The transformation of our likeness to Christ is performed in her heart. It is the spiritual womb in which she brings forth the Christ in us, through the Holy Spirit. She places us in His Heart, the transformation continues. The more we are like Jesus, the more we are led to the Father, because Jesus has said, "No one can come to me unless drawn by the Father who sent me…" (Jn. 6:44)

The fire comes when I am loving Jesus, and I tell the Holy Spirit how much I love Him-it is then I feel this fire inside. Jesus shows us about love. He wants this connection with His Heart and Mary's heart. He wants us to know love is not isolated. Love is joining. Love is communication with each other.

I see the reflection of God in you and I love Him in you. To see Christ in others is to love them deeply. It is easy to love someone who is reflecting Christ. I must see Christ in all others. This is the key to loving others. My spiritual director told me that I have to see the person created by the Father and look for their ideal self, not the false self.

I am not writing a textbook. This is the story of my love relationship with Jesus, like writing a diary. I want a relationship with Jesus-it must have the "person" in it, otherwise it is like a textbook. I search after the deep mysteries of His love, of His being, of His truth, of the Sacraments, of the mysteries of the rosary.

I want to go more and more deeply into the center of His burning love, to penetrate His wounds, and enter so deeply into His Heart, and to love Our Lady. The unseen becomes more real than the seen. I thirst. I hunger. I long. I am empty. I have been experiencing a period of such craving to be filled by Him. To know Him is to want so much more. I understand more fully the driving force behind the hungry souls. I feel He is allowing me to experience this hunger, to know the need for souls to be fed by the love of God!

What feeds this starved soul? It is only the burning love of God. My God, I adore You. My life is spent in search of You, only by You am I fed. I long for the Eucharist and the tabernacle. It is there I find peace, for it is there my soul is fed with Your divine life. Like a dry and weary desert land, so my soul is thirsting for my God.

Incarnation:
"…You see before you the Lord's servant, let it happen to me as you have said…" (Lk. 1:38)

Jesus is co-equal with the Father and the Holy Spirit. He took on human flesh from the flesh and blood of Mary.

The Mystery: God, the Second Person of the Trinity - took a whole human nature. He is God-Man.

Jesus allowed Himself to be bound. He was bound in a human, baby body, He was tied to a pillar. He allowed them to nail Him to the cross. His body was locked in a tomb.

  

 

December 27, 1995

LET US LOVE THE TWO HEARTS OF JESUS AND MARY
IN THE RECEPTION OF THE HOLY EUCHARIST.

HE GAVE HIMSELF TO US ON THE CROSS. HE GIVES HIMSELF TO US IN THE EUCHARIST.

How great was the act of love, God gave to this world, when He gave Himself and died on the cross. He gives Himself to us this day in the Holy Eucharist.

The greatest commandment is that we must love God with our whole heart, our whole soul, and our whole being. This is a commandment. If we are to enter heaven, we must follow the commandments. They are commands given by God for us to follow.

The greatest act we can do on this earth is an act of loving God. The reason for our existence is to love God. In the sacrament of His greatest love, He gives Himself to us. This is an act of love on His part. We are called to respond by giving ourselves in love to Him.

This is the purpose of the Holy Eucharist: to unite in such oneness with our Holy, Loving God. Our all consuming passion should be that of loving God. How many go to the Eucharist with the sole purpose of giving great love to God? He wants us to love Him. He wants souls to tell Him how much they truly love Him. This is the most intimate act of love when Jesus gives Himself-Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity to man. If it is such an act of love, how are we receiving Him in Communion? We should beg God, in this most intimate union with Him, to help us to love Him with greatest love.

Jesus is a Person. He wants our love. The Holy Spirit wants such intimacy with us. Our Father wants us to love Him. In the Eucharist, we unite with God. In this intimate act of uniting with our beloved God, with Divinity, we must pour out our love to God. We must pour out our heart to the most adorable Heart of Jesus. Jesus is so unjustly treated by many of His beloved souls He loves so much. Let us help make reparation to the Almighty God by loving God with our whole heart, our whole soul, and our whole being in the sacrament of His greatest love. This is the Gift of Himself.

Think of how it is to love someone and give your all for that person, to pour out your heart to him or her and then be treated with coldness and neglect. It hurts our heart so much more when we deeply love someone to be rejected by that person. Jesus loves us with the deepest love. We cannot fully comprehend this love. Let us love Him with the deepest love. Let us love Mary and her Immaculate Heart. Let us love her as the Mother of God. Let us love her as the virgin who bore the Son of God. May we, in the reception of the Eucharist pour out our love to Him, to this adorable Heart. May we pour out our love to His Holy Mother.

Mary said at Fatima that Jesus wants His Heart venerated next to the heart of His Mother. Let us love these two Hearts as we receive the Sacrament of the Eucharist. Then we are so deeply united with God. We see Their two Hearts surrounded with thorns for the injustices against Their Hearts. Let us help make reparation daily as we receive Him in the Eucharist. This is a special time to help make reparation to Their wounded Hearts.

Let us remember how He poured His love out to us on the cross and how He pours out His love to us now when He gives us Himself in the Eucharist, the Eucharist which contains His Heart of burning love. His Heart was pierced with a lance. Her heart was invisibly pierced with a sword. As the wounds in Their Hearts are deep, so too is Their love so deep.

He does not want "surface love". He wants hearts filled with deep burning love.

  

 

A Prayer before the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass

    Let me be a holy sacrifice and unite with God in the sacrament of His greatest love.

    I want to be one in Him in this act of love, where He gives Himself to me and I give myself as a sacrifice to Him. Let me be a holy sacrifice as I become one with Him in this my act of greatest love to Him.

    Let me unite with Him more, that I may more deeply love Him. May I help make reparation to His adorable Heart and the heart of His Mother, Mary. With greatest love, I offer myself to You and pray that You will accept my sacrifice of greatest love. I give myself to You and unite in Your gift of Yourself to me. Come and possess my soul.

    Cleanse me, strengthen me, heal me. Dear Holy Spirit act in the heart of Mary to make me more and more like Jesus.

    Father, I offer this my sacrifice, myself united to Jesus in the Holy Spirit to You. Help me to love God more deeply in this act of my greatest love.

    Give me the grace to grow in my knowledge, love and service of You and for this to be my greatest participation in the Mass. Give me the greatest graces to love You so deeply in this Mass, You who are so worthy of my love.

                     From Blue Book 6b — Excerpt from the Rosary of February 21, 1995

 


 

The Coronation of Mary as Queen of Heaven and Earth

1.  R.  Mary now reigns in the courts of Heaven with Jesus, her Beloved Son!

2.  Song:  Eye Has Not Seen

3.  R.  It is in surrender that we will be joined ever closer to Jesus' Heart, that we will grow in our union with Jesus, and that we, someday, will be with Him forever in Heaven.

4.  R.  We will be with the angels and saints — with the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit in such union if we go to heaven.

5.  R.  The intense feeling of oneness, the most wonderful feeling that you feel after Communion, is only a small amount compared to the intensity of union with God: the Father, Son and Holy Spirit that we will experience in Heaven forever and ever and ever. There will be no more longing, no more wanting. We will know the love of God!

6.  R.  Our souls are restless until they rest in You, O Lord!

7.  R.  As a deer thirsts for water, our souls thirst for the Lord!

8.  Song:  May the angels lead you into Paradise. May the martyrs greet you on your way. May you see the face of the Lord this day. Alleluia, Alleluia.

9.  R.  The dropping of a pin, the batting of an eye and our life is ended. But Jesus and Mary are with us today. Jesus remains with us in His Divinity and humanity in the Eucharist, longing and waiting for us with His Divine Love and His Divine Life.

10. R.  Grace is outpoured in abundance through the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus, our Savior.

This rosary was prayed just prior to the beginning of the Shepherds of Christ meeting. Many people were present.

 

 

                    Ruth

 

Readings for today

 

Ruth 2: 1-3, 8-11, 4: 13-17

Naomi had a kinsman on her husband’s side, well–to–do and of Elimelech’s clan. His name was Boaz. 

    Ruth the Moabitess said to Naomi, ‘Let me go into the fields and glean ears of corn in the footsteps of some man who will look on me with favour.’ She replied, ‘Go, daughter.’ So she set out and went to glean in the fields behind the reapers. Chance led her to a plot of land belonging to Boaz of Elimelech’s clan. 

Boaz said to Ruth, ‘Listen to me, daughter. You must not go gleaning in any other field. You must not go away from here. Stay close to my work–women. Keep your eyes on whatever part of the field they are reaping and follow behind. I have forbidden my men to molest you. And if you are thirsty, go to the pitchers and drink what the servants have drawn.’ Ruth fell on her face, prostrated herself and said, ‘How have I attracted your favour, for you to notice me, who am only a foreigner?’ Boaz replied, ‘I have been told all about the way you have behaved to your mother–in–law since your husband’s death, and how you left your own father and mother and the land where you were born to come to a people of whom you previously knew nothing.

    So Boaz took Ruth and she became his wife. And when they came together, Yahweh made her conceive and she bore a son. And the women said to Naomi, ‘Blessed be Yahweh who has not left you today without anyone to redeem you. May his name be praised in Israel! The child will be a comfort to you and the prop of your old age, for he has been born to the daughter–in–law who loves you and is more to you than seven sons.’ And Naomi, taking the child, held him to her breast; and she it was who looked after him. And the women of the neighbourhood gave him a name. ‘A son’, they said, ‘has been born to Naomi,’ and they called him Obed. This was the father of Jesse, the father of David.

   

Psalm 128: 1-5

How blessed are all who fear Yahweh, 
    who walk in his ways! 

Your own labours will yield you a living, 
    happy and prosperous will you be. 
Your wife a fruitful vine 
    in the inner places of your house. 
Your children round your table 
    like shoots of an olive tree. 

Such are the blessings that fall 
    on those who fear Yahweh. 
May Yahweh bless you from Zion! 
May you see Jerusalem prosper 
    all the days of your life, 
and live to see your children’s children! 

Peace to Israel!

  

Matthew 23: 1-12  

Then addressing the crowds and his disciples Jesus said, ‘The scribes and the Pharisees occupy the chair of Moses. You must therefore do and observe what they tell you; but do not be guided by what they do, since they do not practise what they preach. They tie up heavy burdens and lay them on people’s shoulders, but will they lift a finger to move them? Not they! Everything they do is done to attract attention, like wearing broader headbands and longer tassels, like wanting to take the place of honour at banquets and the front seats in the synagogues, being greeted respectfully in the market squares and having people call them Rabbi. 

    ‘You, however, must not allow yourselves to be called Rabbi, since you have only one Master, and you are all brothers. You must call no one on earth your father, since you have only one Father, and he is in heaven. Nor must you allow yourselves to be called teachers, for you have only one Teacher, the Christ. The greatest among you must be your servant. Anyone who raises himself up will be humbled, and anyone who humbles himself will be raised up.

   

                    R. Ruth married Boaz and she conceived a
                son Obed. He was the father of Jesse,
                the father of David —

                    Ruth was a pagan — she was married to
                Naomi's son — the son died — Ruth was
                faithful to stay with Naomi her mother-in-law
                then Ruth married Boaz —
               
                    This is the genealogy of the little King —
                    The is in the genealogy of Jesus —

                In Gospel — they were worried about
                    being recognized for themselves —
                    of being served

                Mary is Queen
                Mary is our Mother
                Mary shows us her example of humility

                    We have been called to serve
                others and not be served —

                    The Kingdom of God is the
                greatest — we have been called
                to serve this — We have heard this
                call and now we follow —
                Response to God's love —

                We live by the Word of God
                Not just talk about it —
                We have the example of Jesus —
                We are to follow Him and
                We have example in Mary and the
                    Apostles

                We pray the Church will be
                    blessed in its willingness
                    to serve the Lord —

                We pray that we will be faithful
                    to God — to live as God wants
                    of us

                God hear our prayers offered in
                    faith —
                    We pray through Christ, Our
                    Lord — Amen

                We offer all we do to the Father,
                    united to the Holy Sacrifice
                    of the Mass going on around
                    the world, in the Holy Spirit
                    with all the angels and saints
                    and the souls in purgatory —
                    Amen

                God the Father —
                    please accept our sacrifice —
                    We offer ourselves, our lives to You —
                    united to the Mass in the Holy Spirit —
                    with all the angels and saints and
                    souls in purgatory —

                Oh Father —
                    We love You so much —
                    Please accept this offering we
                        give Father —
                    We love You, we love You —

                Father thank You for the Mass
                Father thank You for Your gift to us —

      

The Our Father

    Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

  

                Sing: We received the Living God

   

Psalm 107: 23-31

Voyagers on the sea in ships,
plying their trade on the great ocean,
have seen the works of Yahweh,
his wonders in the deep.

By his word he raised a storm-wind,
lashing up towering waves.
Up to the sky then down to the depths!
Their stomachs were turned to water;
they staggered and reeled like drunkards,
and all their skill went under.

They cried out to Yahweh in their distress,
he rescued them from their plight,
he reduced the storm to a calm,
and all the waters subsided,
and he brought them, overjoyed at the stillness,
to the port where they were bound.

Let them thank Yahweh for his faithful love,
for his wonders for the children of Adam!

 

                God hear our plaintiff cry 

  

                It's in a pure heart

                Dwelling in the Hearts of Jesus
                    and Mary

 

 

 

                 

 

 

Give a gift that lasts.

July 31, 1994

Words of Jesus to Members of
Shepherds of Christ Associates:

"My beloved priest-companion, I intend to use the priestly newsletter, Shepherds of Christ, and the movement, Shepherds of Christ Associates, in a powerful way for the renewal of My Church and the world.

"I will use the newsletter and the chapters of Shepherds of Christ Associates as a powerful instrument for spreading devotion to My Heart and My Mother's Heart.

"I am calling many to become members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. To all of them I will give great blessings. I will use them as instruments to help bring about the triumph of the Immaculate Heart and the reign of My Sacred Heart. I will give great graces to the members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. I will call them to be deeply united to My Heart and to Mary's Heart as I lead them ever closer to My Father in the Holy Spirit."

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