Messenger:      Mary is perfect mother

       

Excerpts from The Spirituality of Fatima

by Father Carter, S.J.

 

 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:

    More souls go to Hell because of sins of the flesh than for any other reason.

    Certain fashions will be introduced that will offend Our Lord very much.

    Many marriages are not good; they do not please Our Lord and are not of God.

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

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

    If the government of a country leaves the Church in peace and gives liberty to our Holy Religion, it will be blessed by God.

    Tell everybody that God gives graces through the Immaculate Heart of 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. Ask them to plead for peace from the Immaculate Heart of Mary, for the Lord has confided the peace of the world to her. (19)

April 10, 2005 message continues

Messenger:      Why do many people do the
                            things they do -- for love.

                        A child has an imperfect mother -- a human mother
                            Mary is perfect Mother
                            God the Father is perfect Father

                        We need Mary


                        She mothers us

                        The Annunciation
                            Christ came as a baby
                            The Son of God born of a
                                woman the New Eve

                            This is what we meditate on today,
                                and we meditate on sin.

                        In my experience with dealing with
                            some others they lie to themselves
                            about their faults, they don't take
                            responsibility for their actions and
                            then they, after they have clearly
                            been caught with hands in a
                            cookie jar, say they didn't
                            do it and try to blame me for
                            trying to correct a problem.

                        In community life amongst, "holy" people
                            people praying this way, may say "I don't
                            want to see myself as doing any wrong
                            I want to look perfect."

                            A man had a car wreck and he was
                        clearly in the wrong. When the police
                        man came he lied because he didn't
                        want to be caught. He was wrong. He
                        didn't tell the truth.

                            In the beginning of the Bible is the
                        fall of Adam and Eve in the end the
                        bible says there will be no more lies.

                            Eve clearly disobeyed God we
                        are the children of Eve. The devil
                        tempted her. Eve is our mother from
                        generations past Adam our father

                            MARY is our spiritual mother
                            Mary is the New Eve.

                        Christ is born
                        God a perfect baby
                        He is sinless
                        Mary is sinless

                            Some people never look at their
                        ancestors they never look at their
                        parents who taught them attitudes they
                        never look at the child of the past the one
                        who lives in us today and once the child has
                        left the house, they have had a major
                        struggle inside some do not even
                        admit they act as a child of the past
                        many times

                            And then say, I don't have to look at
                        anything from the past. "Eat, drink
                        and be merry I am perfect you are
                        not"

                            All of us heaped our sins on the
                        back of Christ, we have deceived ourselves
                        sinned and tried to act like we are perfect.

                            God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit are
                        one, they live in perfect love.

                            When people try to get along in
                        intimate relationships the imperfections
                        can stick out like daggers piercing the
                        other and they are very painful.

                            A person not taking responsibility for
                        being an imperfect human person and engaging
                        in a relationship gives the other one
                        option "you will accept me as perfect and
                        every time I stick you with a dagger
                        you will be blamed for your suffering and
                        I WILL NOT CHANGE I AM Perfect."

                            Did you ever see a puzzle there
                        can be pointy pieces, but most probably
                        have rounded curves and when the puzzle
                        gets put together it fits to form a
                        beautiful picture.

                            God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit are
                        one no rough edges, the
                        perfect community. No sin, no imperfections.
                        Our life lived here is to try to be
                        perfect like our heavenly Father is
                        perfect. Why do we think we are here.
                        What if I had an experience that was
                        bad with you 6 months ago and I am
                        by the will of God, supposed - to work
                        with you and your attitude is - you
                        are perfect, "I do not sin or ever have
                        any problems", so for 6 months and until
                        you die, you can carry division in
                        your soul, block God's work and then go to
                        Church and say 50 Our Fathers
                        every day

                        "Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive
                            those who trespass against us."

                        But your inner child of the past, since
                            your condemning parents, tells you
                            now

                            "NO BODY WILL EVER
                                SHOW YOU AS
                            ANYTHING LESS THAN
                            PERFECT!!"

Jesus speaks:   So you can block all My work, call
                            yourself holy and I spit you out.
                            How would you have Me forgive
                            you?

                        Some people have bad habits and pin
                            their sins on the backs of others
                            I carried those sins, I bled for
                            your sins and your lies.

                        Some men are so prideful and never admit
                            their pride, they lie and step on
                            others

                            The 3 Classes of men

                            They work for an ulterior gain
                                something for themselves not
                                doing it for My will.

                        To be imperfect they cannot tolerate so
                            no one can tell them anything ever
                            They are perfect

                        The inner child of the past put away
                            condemning parents long ago.

                        I give you Myself in the Eucharist
                        I give you Mary as your heavenly Mother

                        When you come to Me you see yourself as
                            perfect, put up a wall and do not
                            even come in humility asking for
                            grace to be healed.

                        You are once again proving to mom and
                            dad you are perfect and NO parent
                            tells you nothing now

                        With an attitude like this - in
                            every relationship - you
                            are forced to keep your distance, because
                            your daggers make people close to you
                            bleed and when things go wrong in interacting
                            you are perfect and they are imperfect
                            you see yourself as sinless if you have
                            a bad experience with others you always
                            lie about your part and then go away
                            blaming the other, you think you are perfect
                            and you do not have to change or grow.

                        Many people never intend to change. They
                            go from divorce to divorce wounding
                            others leaving a trail of bleeding
                            people, while they wear a white dress
                            and see themselves as perfect.

                        Even a person that has killed in cold
                            blood may see himself as gentle and
                            the others as guilty and

                        When you pray to see your faults and I
                            give you a glimpse of the big
                            pieces of furniture in your room
                            you cry out
                            "I won't look I can't take it" and
                            keep on being the little child
                            repeating the same hurtful
                            patterns time and time again
                            with no discipline for yourself.

                        You are a child without a parent.
                        The man who may say
                            "I'm never being under
                            anyone again. I am in charge.
                            I will never take orders from anyone.
                            I am better than any woman. Don't
                            tell me nothing - EVER - I will
                            fight more than any battle in the army
                            to not be told anything I did wrong
                            by anybody. I may manipulate others,
                            hurt others, do things my way only"

                        Do you know about divorce
                            young men and woman getting into
                            a divorce courts wounded
                            soldiers failing to admit how
                            the legal rules are hurting
                            them wounding others, whoever,
                            because of the forced separation

                        A great amount of people are living more
                            wounds on top of the wounds of
                            childhood and fail to even own
                            the pain as they blame others
                            for what is killing them inside.

                        Whenever there is a death someone
                            must grieve

                        What about the pain of divorce
                            the anger of being betrayed
                            the living of your wife or
                            husband with another man
                            and having another child
                            What about lies said while you
                                were deceived

                        Does the anger come down on everyone
                            in passive - aggressive ways, projection
                            because you won't look at it and you
                            are perfect.

          

Except from    Your Inner Child of the Past

by W. Hugh Missildine, M.D. published by Simon and Schuster New York 1963

p. 22

    This is fundamental in understanding how your personal problems as an adult arise. Childhood is customarily considered a period of growth and training, terminating when you no longer need the guidance and protection of your parents and can live as an independent human being. As you assume the posture of an adult, you become, in effect, your own parent. In doing this, you utilize the feelings and attitudes of your parents toward yourself.

p. 23-24

Our Past-Colored Glasses

    Our "inner child of the past" causes us to see life, in a sense, with double vision. The adult-of-the-present gives us one view--which may be quite intelligent, level-headed and mature. At the same time the "child of the past" sees the same situation through the emotionally colored glasses of past family relationships. The two views may be so different that we are pulled in two directions at once.

    Sometimes we say, "The way I think and the way I feel are not the same at all", or "Why do I act this way when I don't really want to?" These are familiar questions when the "child of the past" and the adult-of-the-present are contending.

    I have found, from teaching medical students in my psychiatry classes, that even when this concept of the "child of the past" existing actively within the adult is understood and accepted intellectually, there is a strong tendency to minimize the significance of feelings that stem from childhood. You will have to struggle within yourself to accept their existence as an influential part of your adult make-up.

    In our  adult lives the "child of the past" is constantly trying to make us live as we lived "at home" in childhood. Due to this influence, we keep twisting our present circumstances and relationships to resemble those we knew in the past. It is not much different in some respects from twisting, curling and rearranging the bedclothes in a certain way as we try to fall asleep in that individual way which each of us has. In this manner we get the "security of the familiar" that we knew as children. While the circumstances and relationships of our early years may not have been entirely comfortable, we learned about life and the world at large in this special childhood setting. We learned to adjust ourselves to this special emotional atmosphere and to call it "reality." As adults we tend to continue to see things in terms of the "reality" of this early family setting.

 

April 10, 2005 message continues

Jesus speaks:   A person with condemning parents may
                            spend his whole life trying
                            to prove men of his success
                            because of unacceptance
                            by his dad

                        All his actions have this at their root
                            "I must prove myself as
                            finally worth things

                            And then he will recognize me
                            And then dad will love me."

                        It is too diverse and involved to touch
                            on individual problems here.

                        In being leaders in My Reign of My
                            Sacred Heart you must be
                            willing to embrace the truth
                            about yourselves and look at your
                            inner child of the past and your
                            relationships your attitudes

                        And then there are the weaknesses
                            from the garden
                            jealousy, pride, envy,
                            slothfulness, greed

                        All human persons have weaknesses
                            because of original sin.

                        What happens when the child of the
                            past, feels unloved and is so
                            dismayed they sit in anguish
                            not being able hardly to
                            stand it.

                        Does the parent come, put their arms
                            around them and say "oh my
                            child you have done a good
                            job you are allowed to make
                            a mistake, you must try to
                            do good and please your
                            heavenly Father"

                        If the world is the parent that teaches
                            today the child is being taught
                            untruths and perfectionism

                        The world teaches competition
                            not working together promoting
                            God's Kingdom using your
                            talents

April 10, 2005 message continues

Jesus speaks:   The world teaches envy, getting ahead,
                            condemnation, shame, sinfulness

                        Mary your Mother came in Clearwater
                            to be your parent and teach
                            you as a loving Mother the
                            way to God.

                        I am the New Adam
                        I came as a baby

                        You must come to My Heart and come
                            forth the child walking in the
                            Father's light
                            loving Mary and dwelling in
                            her Immaculate Heart

                        She brings you forth a child of
                            light from her womb of
                            perfect love

                        I give you the wall in Florida
                            with a reminder you
                            are surrounded by the Clearwater
                            from beneath the building.

                        I am God go to the spiritual
                            womb of Mary, be cleaned
                            of your sins.

                        Watch the babies cry
                        Who will comfort them

                        80 year olds still cry like babies
                            because of the way they feel
                            about themselves from the
                            way mom and dad treated them

                        This is to not get you stuck in
                            a self analyzing time in which
                            you focus more on yourselves
                            this is to open a door and
                                dare to look in
                                every decision you make you
                                    are the child of the past
                                    acting with all you know
                                    now.

                        A man was in charge of a big company
                            and losing money he didn't
                            want to look at his past
                            patterns and old habits

                        Boy, you would say, he will
                            fold!! 

  

Excerpts from The Spirituality of Fatima

by Father Carter, S.J.

   

May 13, 1917 

    "Do not be afraid, I will do you no harm..... I am from Heaven.

    "I have come to ask you to come here for six months in succession, on the 13th day, at the same hour. Later on, I will tell you who I am and what I want

    "Are you willing to offer yourselves to God and bear all the sufferings He wills to send you, as an act of reparation for the sins by which He is offended, and in supplication for the conversion of sinners?

    "Pray the Rosary every day in order to obtain peace for the world, and the end of the war." (8)

  

June 13, 1917

    "God wishes you to remain in the world for some time because He wants to use you to establish in the world the devotion to my Immaculate Heart. I promise salvation to those who embrace it, and their souls will be loved by God as flowers placed by myself to adorn His throne." (10)

  

July 13, 1917

    "During her appearance in July, Our Lady, in answer to Lucia's plea, promised that in October she would work a great miracle so that all might believe and know who she was. Again, the Mother of God told the children to sacrifice themselves for sinners and to say many times, especially when making a sacrifice, this prayer: "O my Jesus, I offer this for love of Thee, for the conversion of poor sinners, and in reparation for all the sins committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary." (11)

    "During this same July apparition, Mary showed the three children a vision of Hell. She told them:

    "You have seen Hell, where the souls of poor sinners go. To save them, God wishes to establish, in the world, devotion to my Immaculate Heart. If people do what I tell you, many souls will be saved and there will be peace.

    "The war (World War I, then raging) is going to end. But if people do not stop offending God, another and worse one will begin in the reign of Pius XI. When you shall see a night illuminated by an unknown light [January 2, 1938], know that this is the great sign that God gives you that He is going to punish the world for its many crimes by means of war, hunger, and persecution of the Church and the Holy Father. (12)

    "To prevent this, I shall come to ask for the consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart and the Communion of Reparation on the five first Saturdays. If my requests are granted, Russia will be converted and there will be peace. If not, she will scatter her errors throughout the world, provoking wars and persecutions of the Church. The good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer, and various nations will be destroyed....

    "But in the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph, the Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, Russia will be converted, and a certain period of peace will be granted to the world." (13)

  

August 19, 1917

    She told them she was greatly displeased by the action of the mayor. As a result, the miracle promised for October would not be as impressive as originally planned. (15)

 

September 13, 1917

    More than 30,000 people were present in September, and saw a shower of mysterious white petals fall to within 10 feet of the ground before dissolving into the air. Many also saw the globe of light bearing the Lady come to rest atop the tree, and the branches bend as though someone were standing on them. Later, they saw the cloud depart into the east, from whence it had come.(16)

  

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)

    While the people in attendance were beholding the great Miracle of the Sun, the three young visionaries, and they alone, were privileged to see striking visions in the heavens:

    As Our Lady had promised, St. Joseph had come with the Holy Family and had blessed the world. Then, Our Lady appeared as the Mother of Sorrows, accompanied by her Divine Son, Who also blessed the world. Finally, Lucy had seen the Blessed Virgin, dressed in the brown robes of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, crowned as Queen of Heaven and Earth, holding a brown Scapular in her hand, with her infant Son upon her knee. However, in none of these visions had any of the figures spoken to the children. (18)

    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:

    More souls go to Hell because of sins of the flesh than for any other reason.

    Certain fashions will be introduced that will offend Our Lord very much.

    Many marriages are not good; they do not please Our Lord and are not of God.

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

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

    If the government of a country leaves the Church in peace and gives liberty to our Holy Religion, it will be blessed by God.

    Tell everybody that God gives graces through the Immaculate Heart of 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. Ask them to plead for peace from the Immaculate Heart of Mary, for the Lord has confided the peace of the world to her. (19)

You Must Pray for Your Youth - The Priest Must Unite in His Heart to God

Mary speaks: My dear children,

The days go by so swiftly my little ones and another summer is over and you are back at your jobs being students in your schools learning all the subjects that the teachers teach you.

Oh my little ones, I am your teacher, too, and you do not hear me. I teach you about life, what real life is all about.

My child your life is not promised to you. In one moment a cloud could burst above your head and you would be washed away from the earth.

Babies die, children die, young and old men die. Children, God has all the power. Your teachers, your parents, the policemen, the firemen, your priest are all to be instruments acting in God's name.

Many today just use authority for their own purpose.

That is why I have called you here my children to pray. I am your Mother. There is a right way, a way rooted in God's truth. The devil has influenced many that they make right- wrong and wrong - right. My little children, you must live according to the Commandments of God.

You must pray, your heavenly Father loves you to pray. I always lived to please my heavenly Father and yours. You must live to please Him.

Little children, you must tell other youth that they, too, should pray these prayers. God wants you to pray. My little children, you have a rough road for the world is teaching you many sick lessons and you are confused.

My little children, it will be hard for you no matter how hard you try, but only in my Son Jesus will you have peace in your hearts. Oh children, please, please be strong, please, I beg you as your heavenly Mother to pray, please consecrate your hearts and pray the rosary. I am asking you to help me in these troubled times. A lot of souls will be affected if you say "no". God wants you to help me reach my little ones, He has given you this gift in allowing me to appear to you and plead to you that you will hear me. Please, my children, your God is angered at the sinful children of the earth. Help my Son to give them His love. You must pray for your youth. Your prayers are so powerful, please help Him to reach the youth through your prayers and example. Please begin prayer chapters for Him.

I love you,
Mary

Messenger:      The first thing she said was to
                            install a crucifix there
                            at the site so we would
                            keep Christ crucified in
                            our hearts.

Messenger:       She wanted herself as sorrowful
                            Mother under the cross and
                            John under the cross.

    

 

April 10, 2005 message continues

Messenger:       She was beheaded

                        Christ is the head
                        Christ remains

                        He was guarded for one year
                            like the guards outside the
                            tomb

                        Then the wall

Mary speaks:    I welcome you with
                            arms open to My image site and
                            the site of my Son in
                            Florida

                        The water will run around
                            my wall

                        Come to my spiritual womb
                         Dare to confess your own sins
                         Don't lie to yourself
                         It is not okay to lie to the superior.
                         You must tell the truth
                         look at the little child inside
                            let me love you and be your
                            spiritual Mother
                            My arms are open to the world
                            I take you to my spiritual womb
                            I take you to the Heart of
                            my Son Jesus

                        My Son shows you His face in
                            the garden.

                        A man got up everyday he
                            walked down a street and fell
                            in the same hole.

Messenger:      We go to Mary our Mother and
                            she wants to help us.

                        Mary waits for us to ask for
                            her help

                        Mary appeared for her
                            children

                        We are children of the
                            Father

                        God wants us to ask for His
                            help.

                        Pride
                            we think we don't
                                need God's grace
