Revelation 21:1-7


The heavenly Jerusalem

    Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; the first heaven and the first earth had disappeared now, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride dressed for her husband. Then I heard a loud voice call from the throne, 'Look, here God lives among human beings. He will make his home among them; they will be his people, and he will be their God, God-with-them. He will wipe away all tears from their eyes; there will be no more death, and no more mourning or sadness or pain. The world of the past has gone.'

    Then the One sitting on the throne spoke. 'Look, I am making the whole of creation new. Write this, "What I am saying is trustworthy and will come true."' Then he said to me, 'It has already happened. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give water from the well of life free to anybody who is thirsty; anyone who proves victorious will inherit these things; and I will be his God and he will be my son.

I am disgusted!







        IS A GIFT I GIVE.







        THE SINS OF


        MERCY ON US.

  Tomorrow is Trinity Sunday. I want to share with
                you the deep insight I have experienced into knowing
                oneness with the Trinity.

    In an experience I am taken up, being so one with Our
Heavenly Father and Jesus His Son, my Divine Bridegroom
and the Holy Spirit my beloved God that sets my heart
on fire for love of God.

    In the great experience of December 15, 1995 I saw a red,
warm place and I was enveloped in God's love. In trying
to understand exactly what happened, I could markedly
realize the presence of all Three Persons and Their oneness
with Mary, I felt warmth, heat, inexpressible joy and
a feeling of the deepest satisfaction. I knew God as
one. I knew God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit as
Three Persons, but the overall oneness of the
experience I cannot explain. I knew oneness and love
as never before. In these experiences time stands still.
I can still see the red glowing chamber I experienced,
but the connection was so deep interiorly. To this day
I can go there and remember and see it. The intensity
of that moment when it climaxed was more than I could
ever write about. It was in being in that deep connection
at its heights that I linger unaware of the existence
of time.

    This was in the back of Holy Cross-Immaculata Church

    Likewise December 5, 1996 when Jesus appeared on
the cross at the point of death was in the back of Holy-Cross
Immaculata. Mary had appeared on the 5ths for
1/2 years and when I went to go back in Holy Cross-
Immaculata Church to see Mary on that December 5, 1996 (12 days
before Mary appeared on the building in Clearwater) Jesus
appeared at the point of death. It was that same intensity
in the climax of that experience. It lasted about twenty
minutes. Where I was experiencing joy on December 15, 1995 and
satisfaction, I knew intense suffering, almost as being
shocked, the intensity of the horror of seeing a man in
such anguishing pain and exerting the effort to move
His jaw I cannot even explain. It was just a deep
suffering and horror I experienced, knowing deeply inside
it was the Divine God.

    Nobody in the Church seems to care much about the
events that occurred before Mary appeared in Florida.
Mary appeared 14 months daily and on the feast of
Our Lady of Guadalupe December 12, 1996 I was told to put
the Mary message on a tape.

    The funds become lower and lower and the help from the
Church to listen to anything Mary has said in Florida
is so little.

    Even after the sign given May 5, 2001 on the video with
all these pictures we struggle so to buy videos, pictures,
and discs for the Priestly Newsletter.

    The situation of the world is crucial, we are being
warned strongly by Our Lord and the priests really
don't want to take any notice.

    For the whole length of being a messenger of God I
have been persecuted by mostly everybody for delivering
a message from God.

    Even after Mary appeared in Clearwater after I cried out
since July 5, 1994 how she appeared every day, I thought
that people would listen.

    I thought people would listen after the corner fell off.
    I thought people would listen after the Falmouth flood.
    I thought people would listen after the pulsating sun.

But no sign is big enough and the Newsletter and 
    Newsletter Book II are an enormous struggle to 
    send out.

Anyone can read the last Newsletter and see its importance
    to the Church.

Anyone can read the 20 page Newsletter of Father Carter last

God the Father begged and begged for help to get it out,
    finally one trusted soul came forward and since
    his relatives have tried to get the money back from

I deliver this message as I received it this morning.

I pray the Lord continues to give us signs especially
    on the 5th.


Events have occurred that have effected things.


    Christ came the Son of God and they put Him
to death.

    I must write about the blindness of men. Christ
in the garden saw all the sins of lust and
hatred of the whole world. His love within His
Heart was so great for us. Despite all our sins He
gave Himself. He allowed Himself to be persecuted and 
whipped by those He came to save.

    You say to yourself, "How could they beat the
Son of God?" Today He comes in every Mass and 
many do not recognize Him.

    The Son of God is truly present in His Divinity
and Humanity in the Eucharist and we run

literally run after the things of this world.

    He calls us to be Shepherds of Christ to lead the
strayed ones home to His Heart. He gives us His Body
and Blood through the hands of consecrated priests.

Jesus speaks: My life is an endless vat of burning love on fire

for you My chosen souls.

    Though you walk in raging waters the waters

will not swallow you up, if you stay rooted in 


    I come to renew My Church and My world. In this

month of My Sacred Heart how it wounds My Heart

that you do not honor Me.

    I am the King. I am your God.

    You say "How could they crucify Jesus?" When

I send messengers today to warn you, you string

them up and make them cry.

    The time is nigh. No more signs will be given

for you anger Me.

    At Fatima the once promised sign was not

as was planned because you jailed the 


    The Priestly Newsletter is My Gift I am giving to

help renew the Church and the world. You treat

the gifts I have given like trash.

    You and your pompous ways smite Me

and make Me cry.

    Not one can come down from their high

horse to hear My call.

    They whipped Me, they beat Me, they spit

on Me and I loved them.

    2000 years later I send this gift to you

and you will not even open your eyes.

    My Mother appears, you do not even thank

Me, you are so worried for the men.

    I appear and you do not take notice.

    Do the priests even open the Prayer Manual

I send you?

    What greater sign can I send than My Mother

appearing for four and 1/2 years every day.

I send messengers as gifts.

My Mother is a messenger.

I have sent her.

You are busy, too busy to take notice.

I ask you to remember Fatima.

She appeared to the children.

You jailed them.

She warned of World War II

You would not take notice.

She gave you her peace plan.

You focus on what men think.

Do you put God above all else?

Have you used My name in vain?

A small remnant praying can help hold
    back My hand.

My mercy is given to pleading souls,
    pleading for the world.

My sign has been given.

Not one can help Me.

You will know war.

War within your hearts as never before.

Only those consecrated to Our Hearts will be
    able to withstand the torture of
    the mind.

I have asked and begged you to help
    spread the Priestly Newsletter.

You will be tortured in your minds.

I cannot deliver a message to My own Church.

All the priests in this world and My

    messenger is abandoned for delivering

    My message.

Your world will suffer now.



Father Carter's Homily – June 14, 2000



John 6: 51-58

The discourse in the synagogue at Capernaum

I am the living bread
    which has come down from heaven.
Anyone who eats this bread
    will live for ever;
and the bread that I shall give
is my flesh, for the life of the world.’

        Then the Jews started arguing among
     themselves, ‘How can this man give us his
     flesh to eat?’ Jesus replied to them: 

In all truth I tell you, 
if you do not eat
    the flesh of the Son of man
and drink his blood,
you have no life in you.
Anyone who does eat my flesh
    and drink my blood
has eternal life,
and I shall raise that person up
    on the last day.
For my flesh is real food
and my blood is real drink.
Whoever eats my flesh
    and drinks my blood
lives in me
and I live in that person.
As the living Father sent me
and I draw life from the Father,
so whoever eats me
    will also draw life from me.
This is the bread
    which has come down from heaven;
it is not like the bread our ancestors ate:
they are dead,
but anyone who eats this bread
    will live for ever.


Father Carter's homily

    Today's first reading tells us how Yahweh fed the Israelites in the desert with bread from heaven, with manna, and this bread from heaven which kept the Jewish people alive of course was a pre-figurement, a foreshadowing, a looking forward to the time when Jesus in His great merciful love would give us the Eucharist, the Bread of Life, the Bread of Eternal Life.

    The Eucharist, of course, has various dimensions. We have the Eucharist as sacrifice, in which we are in that Sacrifice of the Mass which makes the Sacrifice of Calvary sacramentally made present. We are privileged to offer ourselves, along with Jesus, offer ourselves and Jesus to the Father in the Spirit. And then at Communion time we receive the Eucharist as sacrament where Jesus comes to us, His Body and Blood and Soul and Divinity as the great source for our ongoing transformation in Him. And then, of course, we have the Blessed Sacrament in reservation in our tabernacles. So really we are never left without the Eucharist unless we choose to be so.

    There are something like six and two-tenths billion people who populate this earth, six billion and two-tenths billion people. The vast majority of those people do not have access to the Eucharist. They do not have access to the Eucharist. And so how blessed are we that each day of our lives we can attend the Eucharistic Sacrifice, receive the sacrament of the Eucharist and adore Jesus as He is reserved in our tabernacles in the Blessed Sacrament, and we have to ask ourselves - what is our appreciation of this great gift of the Eucharist in its various dimensions, a gift again which the overwhelming majority of the human race does not have access to. And of course it all has a very, very personal note: Jesus is in the Eucharist for each of us in such a profoundly personal way. And so we ask for the grace not to waste the gift of the Eucharist in its various dimensions. 

    I have a very striking, I think, and a very powerful testimony of one priest's making use to the utmost of the gift of the Eucharist. I recently received a letter, and accompanying the letter was an article by this sender of the letter which appeared recently in the magazine called The Priest, and I'll just read the letter to you and then certain excerpts from the article, which he says I can use in the newsletter according to my wishes, which testify to his great devotion to the Eucharist.

    So he says, 

    "Dear Father Ed, I have a feeling that I was a charter subscriber to your wonderful spirituality newsletter for priests, and I have deeply appreciated every issue. It is a tremendous contribution of the priesthood." 

    And of course, he's not only saying that to me, he's saying it to all who are involved in the newsletter. And perhaps he doesn't know of the great power of prayer which comes out of our prayer chapters and our members which to a great extent make the newsletter as spiritually successful as it is. 

    "I have been devoted to Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament and to His Sacred Heart throughout my 54 years as a priest. I was diocesan director of the Apostleship of Prayer for over 30 years, and also the Priest's Eucharistic League for about the same number of years. I have a feeling you might enjoy the enclosed article from this month's issue of The Priest, which tells of my daily holy hours for 55 years. Perhaps you can use all or parts of the article in some future issue of the newsletter in the hope that some priests may follow the practice that has meant so much to me. May the Sacred Heart of Jesus Who promised St. Margaret Mary, 'Those who promote this devotion shall have their names written in My Heart, never to be effaced,' reward you for all that you do for His Sacred Heart and His priesthood." 

    And again, you have such a big share in that too. 

    And then just a bit of the article which I think is a very inspiring one. This man's name is Monsignor Robert McCarthy.

    "For more than 55 years, I have ministered to migrant carnival workers and made a daily holy hour before the Blessed Sacrament in churches, chapels and monasteries throughout the continent. I want to share my experiences, not to blow my own horn, but in the hope that others will be encouraged to make a daily holy hour a part of their spiritual life."

    Now don't forget, he had to go many times to great pains because he was traveling all over in his ministry, all hours of the days and nights that he would arrive in a particular city, and yet his great love of the Blessed Sacrament, practically all the time would let him find a chapel, a church where the Blessed Sacrament was reserved. He goes on, he says:

    "The daily holy hour before the Blessed Sacrament started for me a year before I was ordained, when Bishop Fulton Sheen visited my seminary and challenged each seminarian to make a holy hour, a daily holy hour, as he himself had done for years. I started my daily holy hour that day, and except at times of sickness and impossibility, I've made my hour with Jesus every day since. As I "graduated" (he has "graduated" in quotation marks), as I graduated from associate to pastor, my daily holy hour was easier because I was my own boss and could set times that were more convenient before carrying out such parochial duties as weddings, funerals, counseling, supervising the parish church and buildings. As a pastor I was assigned to parishes with large debts. Realizing that I could not solve these problems with my limited abilities, I turned them over to Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament with a daily holy hour and consecration of myself and the parish to Him. Before too long in ways that I couldn't explain, the debts were paid and the church and school seemed to thrive. I was convinced more than ever of the necessity of a daily holy hour, as Jesus had promised that He would bless the projects of priests who were dedicated to Him.

    As time went on in 1970, Pope Paul VI established the Pontifical Commission for his pastoral care of migrants and refugees, and I was appointed to minister to the men and women engaged in working with traveling carnivals. This seemed like an insurmountable task for a rural priest who had never worked with migrants. Again, I turned to Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament in my daily holy hours and things began to flourish."

    And then again so much of the rest of the article is taken up with how he would, almost miraculously at times in all his travels, arriving at cities and little towns all times of the hour in the night, always be able when he tried hard enough to find where the Blessed Sacrament was reserved. As I say, it's a very inspiring story.

    Then we can finish up our thoughts today on the Eucharist, again, the Eucharist which has meant so much to us in these past four or five days, by, if I can find it here quickly, quoting something from St. Peter Julian Eymard, the founder of the Blessed Sacrament Fathers. He tells us:

     "The Eucharist, behold the Christian's treasure, his delight on earth. Since Jesus is in the Eucharist for him personally, his whole life ought to be drawn to it like a magnet to its center."1

Prayer for Union with Jesus

    Come to me, Lord, and possess my soul. Come into my heart and permeate my soul. Help me to sit in silence with You and let You work in my heart.

    I am Yours to possess. I am Yours to use. I want to be selfless and only exist in You. Help me to spoon out all that is me and be an empty vessel ready to be filled by You. Help me to die to myself and live only for You. Use me as You will. Let me never draw my attention back to myself. I only want to operate as You do, dwelling within me.

    I am Yours, Lord. I want to have my life in You. I want to do the will of the Father. Give me the strength to put aside the world and let You operate my very being. Help me to act as You desire. Strengthen me against the distractions of the devil to take me from Your work.

     When I worry, I have taken my focus off of You and placed it on myself. Help me not to give in to the promptings of others to change what in my heart You are making very clear to me. I worship You, I adore You and I love You. Come and dwell in me now.

-God's Blue Book, January 17, 1994

I Want My Priests to Come Back

God's Blue Book II Cover

January 17, 1994 3:40 a.m.

Jesus: You know I am He Who lifts you up. In one second I can turn your feelings around and lift you up. Constantly pray to Me. You need Me through these times. Remember, I truly died for you on the cross. Remember, little one, I have chosen you to write to Me. Do you think I will ever abandon you? I am a God who truly loves His people. I love you with such ardent love. You must never doubt.

    Look into My face and see My gentleness. I am the kindest of all hearts. I am He who knows how to love with such love. Become totally lost in My arms.

    Do you think Satan will not taunt you? Put him behind you. You are being guarded by God and His heavenly court. Walk in My ways and the angels walk with you on your path. You are escorted on your way and you are never alone. You are guarded as a precious treasure that is being transported to another place.

    You need to put all your cares in My hands. You are developing true trust when you let go and let Me take over. Keep trusting and silence the ugly prompting of Satan who wants you to worry about useless things. Quit worrying and pray and play with your children. I am telling you there is so much peace and grace gained by private prayer with them. I will tend to all the details of your life. Do not worry for one moment. Put your life in My hands. I am here, little one. Read this message and all of them over and over again.

    You need to go to the Blue Book for your answers. Your answers are found there. I never leave your side. God is guarding you. Just continue to have a union with Me all through the day. All the prayer time alone with Me in one day is not enough. I want you in constant prayer.

    Turn to Me and My Blue Book. This will help many priests to come back and sit before Me in private union with Me. When priests come back to the tabernacle, the flock will begin to be led back to His altar. Priests need to read these letters. They are the preachers. If they do not value their own relationship with Jesus, if they are being led away from Me with busyness, they will not preach the intimate love of Jesus. They are so busy, but it is like throwing out the baby with the bath water. I am the center and their relationship with Me is utmost.

    The priests need these messages. They need to have an intimate, close union with Me. They should be preaching "time in front of the tabernacle." They should be preaching My intense love for My people and how I have so much to give. Some sermons are so complicated--yet nothing about union with Me in the Eucharist and in front of the tabernacle.

    I want My priests to come back and pray before My tabernacle. I want them to read these messages and make Jesus the Center of their lives. When they are led back to Jesus, they will lead the flock home. Priests need adoration every day for at least an hour. I don't care how busy they are. None of it matters if they are not spending time in private prayer alone with Me. They need to come and get their supplies. They need to quit thinking they are doing it and turn back to turning their lives totally over to Me, to totally letting their burdens and busy lives off at the foot of My cross and letting Me lead the way.

    There is not one priest who has so much to do that he cannot do private adoration daily. When the priest comes back to the power in the Eucharist and the tabernacle, the congregation will turn to God for their troubled hearts. Satan has led priests away from Jesus. They are so busy they cannot do all their work, but this must all take second place to praying silently before God and reading His words. These letters will help many priests to come back and be intimate with Jesus.

    All the rituals, all the upkeep of the churches, all the little details, and the King of Glory sits alone! You have thrown out the baby with the bath water. You are missing the boat.

    I want the priests to read this message. Where is the reverence after Communion and who has even heard it mentioned in the church? Private union with Jesus! What an honor! I have all you need. Come to Me and I will give you rest. I am all powerful. I have all the power. I am hyper--vigilant over your lives. I guard you. Quit trying to do it yourselves. Become selfless and let Me possess your souls.

    Have the priests spread these messages. Read them in church. I want adoration of the Eucharist back. I want people to know I am God and I am coming to them in Holy Communion. I want the Blessed Sacrament exposed. I want My churches open. Union with Jesus, the love of Jesus, trust, faith, love for one another, love of God--I want all of these preached from the pulpit!

    I am the Alpha and the Omega. I want My people to be led back to the center, which is Jesus. Pray for your priests. They are under attack. If Satan can wreck the family, the priests, the children, he has it made.

    You are under attack, My beloved priests, and you, in your busyness, are being led away from your union with Jesus. Bring yourselves back to Me and let Me give you My love. I am indeed the bridegroom of your souls. I wait for My beloved ones at the altar. I long for private union with all My beloved ones.

    Come to Me, all who labor and are heavily burdened, and I will give you rest. Come and be lifted up to heights you never dreamed possible. I am God. Put your lives in My hands. Let Me run your life. Quit running amok. You have lost your way and are running down the wrong road. Bring your lives back to Jesus in the tabernacle.

    The world is getting farther from God every minute. Read the messages at prayer meetings. Spread them by word of mouth. The time you waste is valuable. These words are not meant to be saved. Spread them here by any means possible. I want them out, I tell you! If someone wants to read some messages, give them to them and let them read them at prayer meetings. There is no secret here. They are from Me and I want them out. I want you to speak. A lot of your discontent is in sitting around with all these messages and not spreading them. Tell your friends to speak. Speak My words here. You don't have to mention the source. Spread the messages. You are not what is important. The messages are. You will be exposed. Don't worry who knows, but don't spread your own story. Spread the messages. Like ripples on a pond, the love of God will be spread throughout the land. I have so much to give to My hurting ones. I am your God. I died for you out of deepest love. I have come in these messages to lead you back home.

    Quit worrying of details. I am He Who runs the show. Pray for guidance every day. Spend one hour in front of the tabernacle. You cannot do in a million years what I can do in one moment. Quit relying on yourselves. You are only pushing buttons. When you are fixed in Me, the right door opens. When you go it alone, you have a hard road to walk. One hour in private adoration. Be silent or read the Blue Book. Your life will become uplifted by My teaching and you will sail a blue sky.

    Spend time in silence and some in reading My words in front of Me. I am talking to you in these letters. What power, to read them in front of the tabernacle! You can't go it alone. You need My help. You need your supplies. But you must come and get them! You are following your tail around if you do it alone. I am He Who can do all this. When you realize My power in adoration, your lives will change. As long as you are too busy you will have a hard time. The soul craves this union with Me.

    Lead the priests back to adoration and the people will follow. Our leaders have become too busy for adoration. This is the key, the key to unlock the doors to the world's problems. It is found in front of the tabernacle, at daily Mass and Communion. Do the priests ever preach any of this? You have forgotten your center, Jesus, in the Eucharist! All the power is found in Jesus. You have all that you need and you walk about and decorate My churches and clean every speck of dust and repair My pews and carpet My house and fix My organs but you walk about and miss the King of Glory who sits there all alone! Spread the messages on the tabernacle. I want them out!

Prayer for Union With Jesus

    Come to me, Lord, and possess my soul. Come into my heart and permeate my soul. Help me to sit in silence with You and let You work in my heart.
    I am Yours to possess. I am Yours to use. I want to be selfless and only exist in You. Help me to spoon out all that is me and be an empty vessel ready to be filled by You. Help me to die to myself and live only for You. Use me as You will. Let me never draw my attention back to myself. I only want to operate as You do, dwelling in me.
    I am Yours, Lord. I want to have my life in You. I want to do the will of The Father. Give me the strength to put aside the world and let You operate my very being. Help me to act as You desire. Strengthen me against the distractions of the devil to take me from Your work.
    When I worry, I have taken my focus off of You and placed it on myself. Help me not to give in to the promptings of others to change what in my heart You are making very clear to me. I worship You, I adore You and I love You. Come and dwell in me now.

Do you want your school children to be holy?

   Then we must pray as Mary asked at Fatima on October 13th, 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.

   We would like to offer your school rosaries for the youth, the Rosary Aves (short bead by bead meditations), and consecration cards (all have the Imprimatur). We have approximately 25,000 rosaries in stock for immediate delivery to schools for October. Call our toll free number 1-888-211-3041 today to reserve your school's supply and arrange immediate shipment. We distribute the rosaries without charge by operating on a donation basis.

   We must instruct our children about their souls. Our children need to learn to pray the rosary. Praying one decade a day in schools will help children to have peace and to love the rosary. They need to be taught to rely on the rosary. Devotion to the rosary could help decrease violence and increase vocations.

   All of our printed materials can be downloaded from our website at or ordered over the phone. The consecration cards really help in the classroom and often "spread down the hall" after one teacher has success with it.

We love you and pray for you and the children every day,

Prayer for Union with Jesus

    Come to me, Lord, and possess my soul. Come into my heart and permeate my soul. Help me to sit in silence with You and let You work in my heart.

    I am Yours to possess. I am Yours to use. I want to be selfless and only exist in You. Help me to spoon out all that is me and be an empty vessel ready to be filled by You. Help me to die to myself and live only for You. Use me as You will. Let me never draw my attention back to myself. I only want to operate as You do, dwelling within me.

    I am Yours, Lord. I want to have my life in You. I want to do the will of the Father. Give me the strength to put aside the world and let You operate my very being. Help me to act as You desire. Strengthen me against the distractions of the devil to take me from Your work.

     When I worry, I have taken my focus off of You and placed it on myself. Help me not to give in to the promptings of others to change what in my heart You are making very clear to me. I worship You, I adore You and I love You. Come and dwell in me now.

-God's Blue Book, January 17, 1994



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.

-God's Blue Book, December 27, 1995



A Prayer for Intimacy with the Lamb,
the Bridegroom of the Soul

    Oh Lamb of God, Who takes away the sins of the world, come and act on my soul most intimately. I surrender myself, as I ask for the grace to let go, to just be as I exist in You and You act most intimately on my soul. You are the Initiator. I am the soul waiting Your favors as You act in me. I love You. I adore You. I worship You. Come and possess my soul with Your Divine Grace, as I experience You most intimately.




Fr. Edward Carter S.J.

United with Your Heart and Mary's Heart, we ask that You take this petition to Your heavenly Father in the unity of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Rosary Meditations


   Meditating on the Rosary Aves   

This bead-by-bead commentary on the mysteries of the Rosary serves to enhance our awareness of the powerful events involving Our Lord and Our Lady during His mission of salvation among us. Reciting one thought before each Hail Mary in every decade gives just another small aid in concentrating on the great wonder of the Messianic story.

The Joyful Mysteries

The Annunciation

  3. She was filled with the Holy Spirit and the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us.
  4. There was such a bond between Jesus and Mary from the very moment of conception!
  5. She felt His life grow within her womb. His Most Sacred Heart was formed in her womb through the Holy Spirit.

  3. Mary was filled with the Holy Spirit and cried out, with a loud voice, the Magnificat.
  4. "My soul doth magnify the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God, my Savior."
  5. "Because He has regarded the lowliness of His handmaid, from all generations they will call me blessed."
  6. God Who is mighty has done great things to us in His name.
  7. Jesus is no less present in our hearts after Communion than He was in Mary's womb.
  8. Should we not jump up and cry out that we truly receive the one, true God in our hearts?

  6. He came as a little baby. He was born of Mary in the little town of Bethlehem.
  7. This is how it is with Jesus today: there is no blare of trumpets, no roll of drums. Jesus comes quietly at every Mass.

  5. Mary, with such love, beheld her precious Son!
  6. She gazed into His precious baby eyes.
  7. Simeon predicted that her heart would be pierced with a sword.
  8. Her heart would be pierced with a sword for, just as she held His baby body at birth, she would hold his lifeless body under the cross.

The Apostles Creed
I believe in God the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven
and earth; and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord;
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin
Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died
and was buried. He descended into hell; the third day he
arose again from the dead; he ascended into heaven; sits
at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence
he shall come to judge the living and the dead. * I believe
in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Catholic Church, the com-
munion of Saints, the forgiveness of sins, the
resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.

Our Father
Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name.

us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass
against us. And lead us not into temptation but deliver
us from evil. Amen.

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.

Glory Be
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.
* As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,
world without end. Amen.

O My Jesus
O My Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell
and lead all souls to heaven, especially those who are in most
need of Thy mercy.

Hail Holy Queen
Hail, holy Queen, Mother of mercy, our life, our sweetness
and our hope. To thee do we cry, poor banished children of
Eve. To thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping
in this valley of tears. Turn then, most gracious advocate, thine
eyes of mercy toward us. And after this, our exile, show unto
us the blessed Fruit of thy womb, Jesus, O clement, O loving,
O sweet Virgin Mary.
V. Pray for us, O holy Mother of God.
R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

Stations of the Cross Sheets


The Stations of the Cross

Photo of First Station The First Station

With angry hearts and hatred on their faces, they poked at Jesus and condemned Jesus to death. He stood so silent, His hands tied, in perfect peace, because He knew the Father's love. He knew the Father's will. We too will stand our trials in peace, the more we realize the immense love the Father, Son and Holy Spirit have for us. We must pray to the Spirit to transform us more and more into His image and, through this transformation, we will be led ever closer to the Father. Oh, how Jesus loves us!

Photo of Second Station The Second Station

They gave Jesus a heavy cross, laden with the sins of the world. They placed it on His shoulder. It was so heavy He felt as if His shoulder would break. He asks us to carry little crosses, to experience little pains. He could not remove this cross from His shoulder. The weight was unbearable. It is through His suffering and death that we receive new life. It is through our sufferings this day that we will grow in our life with Jesus. Jesus loves us so much that He took up the cross of salvation. He loves us. To His death He loved us. Oh, how Jesus loves us!

Photo of Third Station The Third Station

The cross was so heavy Jesus could hardly walk. He held on to His cross for greatest love of us and in compliance with the will of His Father. It became so hard to walk! The cross was so heavy! He fell. He fell and the cross fell on Him. They poked at Him, they struck Him, they demanded He get up. The pain from the instruments they used to poke Him and strike Him was so great! He somehow managed to get up. When we fall under the weight of our cross, we go to Jesus' Eucharistic Heart. He is no less present in the tabernacle and in the Eucharist than on the day He carried His cross. He waits with the same love that He had for us when He carried His cross and suffered such agony. Oh, how Jesus loves us!

Photo of Fourth Station The Fourth Station

Jesus saw the face of His beautiful Mother. She was weak, her face reddened and full of tears. He saw her tender heart, her love, her anguish, her pain. He saw His dear Mother Mary. His Heart was comforted by the sight of her, but torn by her suffering.

As Mary looked into the eyes of her beloved Son, she saw His love. His head, bleeding and wounded. His body weak. His clothes covered with blood. She looked into His eyes and she saw His love for us. She wants to call us back to the love of her Son. See through her eyes, as she peers into His eyes, the love He has for us this day. He gave Himself for us. Oh, He loves us so much. We are Mary's little children. See through Mary's eyes the love of her Son. Oh, how Jesus loves us!

Photo of Fifth Station The Fifth Station

The cross was so heavy Jesus could not move. His persecutors became angry and forced a man to help Him. The cross was so heavy the two of them could barely move it. How is our cross today? Does it seem so heavy we cannot go on? He is forever watching us. When we are suffering the greatest, He is very close to us. It is in immense suffering that we realize His great love for us. Pray for grace to do always the Father's Will. Pray for grace to grow in our knowledge and love of Jesus.

Photo of Sixth Station The Sixth Station

Jesus' face was covered with blood. From the crowd Veronica came forward with a cloth to wipe His face. On the cloth Jesus gave to us an imprint of His bloodied face. This remains with us this day as a sign of His immense love for us. But more than any cloth, look beyond the visible consecrated host. Jesus remains with us, Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity, in the Eucharist this day, waiting and longing to be with us. Oh, how Jesus loves us!

Photo of Seventh Station The Seventh Station

As Jesus went on the way to Calvary, it became harder and harder to walk. The cross was becoming heavier, His body weaker and weaker. His shoulders and arms hurt so much! His head throbbed as He walked. The blood came from His body, from His head to His feet. He was covered with open wounds. He could not go any farther. He stumbled and fell. Again they poked at Him, only harder, and with such hatred they kicked Him. Such vileness in the hearts of men! His greatest agony was not the agonies of His body, but the agonies of His heart for the love He has for all His precious souls. He loved them so dearly. He loved those who persecuted Him. Oh, how Jesus loves us!


Photo of Eighth Station The Eighth Station

The women came to Jesus with their children, their tender hearts crying and wanting to comfort Him. He saw their love, their care. He saw the coldness of men's hearts for all time, the hatred, the anger, the sins, all the souls that, despite all of His sufferings and death, would be condemned to eternal damnation. He told the women to weep not for Him, but for themselves and their children. His greatest agonies were the agonies of His Most Sacred Heart. Oh, how Jesus loves us!

Photo of Ninth Station The Ninth Station

Jesus fell hard the third time. He was so weakened He could not go on. His body collapsed under the cross from such exhaustion! Jesus' greatest agonies were not the wounds to His body. They were the wounds He experienced to His heart. Do we not realize how much Jesus loves us? It is in meditating on His Passion and death that we will realize His immense love for us. When we fall, when we struggle, Jesus gives us the grace to get up. Jesus never gives us more than we can handle. Our strength will come from Jesus. Come to Jesus' Eucharistic Heart. He is waiting for us this day. Oh, how Jesus loves us!

They took Jesus to the hill to crucify Him. They angrily stripped Jesus of His garments. They took off Jesus' clothes to whip Him. They had covered Jesus' bloody wounds with a dirty purple robe. Now, total surrender-they took off Jesus' clothes. He showed us the way to surrender, always complying with the will of the Father. It is in living in His will that we will have peace and joy, and life eternal some day. Oh, how Jesus loves us!

See Mary as she holds the little Baby Jesus. See her as she washes His tender hands and feet. See her now as she watches as they pound into those same hands and feet the gigantic nails that fix Jesus to the cross.

Mary's heart was torn in her chest as they nailed His hands and feet to the cross. She asks us this day to walk the Passion with Him. See through her eyes the love He has for us. He truly was nailed to the cross. They pounded the nails into Jesus' first hand, then they stretched His body and nailed His other hand. The blood poured from these wounds, that went totally through Jesus' hands. His pain was so immense, but then they nailed His feet! We do not know what pain He suffered. For each one of us He suffered this pain.

Jesus hung for three agonizing hours on the cross against the darkened sky. His greatest agonies were not the agonies of His body, but those of His Heart for the great love He has for each and every soul. He gave Himself to us. He gave His all. He hung with His arms spread in total surrender. Jesus' head was punctured; His hands and feet were nailed to the cross. He gave Himself to us. He gives Himself to us this day in the Eucharist. Jesus gives us Himself! What more do we want?

Song: I Love You Jesus...

They pierced His Heart with a lance and what flowed forth was blood and water, the sacramental life of the Church, water for Baptism and blood for the Eucharist.

They placed the lifeless body of Jesus in the arms of His most loving Mother. As she had held the little baby body in her arms, she now received His bloodied, bruised body. This is how He obeyed the Father's will. Jesus gave His life for us. The Father gave His only Son because He loves us so much. Mary, His Mother, our Mother and the Mother of the Church, is forever by His side. See Jesus in the arms of His loving Mother under the cross. This is love. Mary held His lifeless body in her arms. See through Mary's eyes the love He has for us this day. He gives Himself to us today in the Eucharist. Jesus loves us so much!

The enemies of Jesus rolled the stone up to the tomb and were pleased to have buried Him. Mary, outside the tomb, wept bitterly. The cold reality that He was dead! But death has no power over Jesus, for on the third day He rose, triumphant, from the tomb! We are partakers in His divine life. Death has no power over Jesus. He is with us this day. He comes to bring us life to the full. Jesus loves us so much!




First Saturday Paper


First Saturday Devotion

The Brown Scapular

Rosary Promises

Tell everybody that God gives graces through the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Tell them
to ask graces 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. (Our Lady of Fatima 
to Jacinta.)1

First Saturday Devotion

…The practice of the five first Saturdays involves: 1) Going to confession, which 
may be done from 8 days before to 8 days after the first Saturday. Of course, if a 
person is in the state of serious sin, the confession must be made before receiving 
communion. 2) Receiving Holy Communion. 3) Recitation of 5 decades of the rosary.
4) Meditating for 15 minutes on the mysteries of the rosary. All of the above (except 
confession) must be done on the first Saturday of 5 consecutive months with the 
intention of making reparation to the Immaculate Heart. For those who make the five 
first Saturdays, Our Lady of Fatima has promised to assist them at the hour of death
with all the graces necessary for salvation.

The Brown Scapular and Consecration

…Another request of Our Lady of Fatima-one which includes all the others-is that we 
consecrate ourselves to her Immaculate Heart. What this consecration means we have 
stated earlier. Simply put, we can say that in consecrating ourselves to Mary we give 
and entrust ourselves to her so that she may bring us ever closer to the Heart of Christ, 
this Christ Who brings us to the Father in the Holy Spirit. This act of consecration 
obviously includes our willingness to observe the other requests of Our Lady of Fatima.

A great sign of our consecration to the Immaculate Heart is the wearing of the Brown 
Scapular. Sister Lucia has said that all Catholics should wear the Brown Scapular as 
part of the Fatima message. She said, The Rosary and the Scapular are inseparable…
In 1251, when she gave the Scapular to St. Simon Stock and thereby to the world, the 
Queen of Heave stated: Whosoever dies clothed in this shall never suffer eternal fire. 
Wearing the Scapular serves as a constant reminder of one’s personal consecration to 
Mary and of the necessity of imitating her virtues and heeding her requests.” Only 
priests properly authorized can validly enroll one in the Brown Scapular. 2



Promises of Our Lady to Those
Who Pray the Rosary

Over the years, in various apparitions, Mary has stressed the importance of the rosary.
She has promised great blessings to those who pray the rosary. To St. Dominic and to
Blessed Alan she stated:

  1. Whoever shall faithfully serve me by the recitation of the Rosary, shall 
    receive signal graces.
  2. I promise my special protection and the greatest graces to all those who 
    shall recite the Rosary.
  3. The Rosary shall be a powerful armour against Hell, it will destroy vice, 
    decrease sin, and defeat heresies.
  4. It will cause virtue and good works to flourish; it will obtain for souls the 
    abundant mercy of God; it will lift them to the desire of eternal things. Oh, 
    that souls would sanctify themselves by this means.
  5. The soul which recommends itself to me by the recitation of the Rosary, shall 
    not perish.
  6. Whoever shall recite the Rosary devoutly, applying himself to the 
    consideration of its sacred mysteries shall never be conquered by misfortune. 
    God will not chastise him in His justice, he shall not perish by an unprovided 
    death; if he be just he shall remain in the grace of God, and become worthy 
    of eternal life.
  7. Whoever shall have a true devotion for the Rosary shall not die without the 
    sacraments of the Church.
  8. Those who are faithful to recite the Rosary shall have during their life and at
    their death the light of God and the plenitude of His graces; at the moment
    of death they shall participate in the merits of the saints in paradise.
  9. I shall deliver from purgatory those who have been devoted to the Rosary.
  10. The faithful children of the Rosary shall merit a high degree of glory in
  11. You shall obtain all you ask of me by the recitation of the Rosary.
  12. All those who propagate the Holy Rosary shall be aided by me in their
  13. I have obtained from my Son that all the advocates of the Rosary shall have
    for intercessors the entire celestial court during their life and at the hour of

Can we refuse our most loving Mother her request that we daily pray the rosary?

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.

Song: O Lady of Light, shining so bright, be with us this day, guiding our way, O Lady, O Lady of Light. O Lady of Light, shining so bright, be with us this day, guiding our way, O Lady, O Lady of Light. O Lady of Light, shining so bright, be with us this day, guiding our way, O Lady, O Lady of Light.

Mary speaks: I appear to you as Our Mother of Sorrows. I appear to you as Our Mother of Sorrows. I appear to you as Our Mother of Sorrows.

A Note from the President of Shepherds of Christ:

If you are devoted to Our Lady's rosary, we need your help! A member of our ministry is very devoted to Our Blessed Mother and he is helping to teach us how to grow our volunteer rosary makers. He estimates that we will need approximately $37,000 this year for beads alone! This translates into 22,339,500 rosary beads (yes, 22 million beads) assembled by volunteers into 378 thousand rosaries. The biggest users of our rosaries are the Catholic schools, who requested more than 100,000 rosaries last year.

Can you help us? I appeal to you for funds, whether large or small. We give because we love God, we love our Blessed Mother, and we love souls. We will accept gifts in many forms, besides cash or check donations, we can receive gifts directly in the form of stocks or property. These gifts can offer large tax advantages to the donor and increase the monetary value of the gift to us. Also if you can help assemble rosaries we need your help! If you can help us in anyway, please call or write us. God Bless!

I love you,
John Weickert




A rosary can be used to pray for healing. It is powerful to unite our prayers to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and pray through the powerful intercession of Our Lady of Clearwater.

In times of trouble, for special prayer, we can use our rosary and pray as follows.

A Rosary for Healing or for Someone with Cancer.

On one Hail Mary bead or as many as you desire, say: 

May God heal                     through the intercession of Our Lady of Clearwater in union with the Mass and all the Masses being celebrated around the world.

Pray the Hail Mary or Hail Mary's then pray this after the Hail Mary.

May the cancer be uprooted and thrown into the sea.

We believe with all our hearts.

After the Glory Be — pray the following petition.

May                     be healed through the intercession of Our Lady of Clearwater if it be the holy will of God.

Note: You can look at Mary on the image rosary while you pray this rosary.

Note: The above section can be printed out from a PDF file, and you can pray the rosary looking at the pictures.


December 17, 2000, Mary speaks:

Help me to circulate my red and blue
    Rosary Books and the
    prayers my Son gives to you.

This is a gift we give you.
All the revelations are gifts given to you.
My Son is the Light of the World.
He is Jesus born in a stable.
Will you help me?
He is the Light of the World. Help me, help me
    reach my children of the world.
