Excerpt from Tell My People by Father Edward Carter, S.J.


Reparation for Sin

Jesus: "My beloved priest-companion, tell My people that the ugly face of sin covers the earth as never before in the history of the human race. My image, which should shine forth brilliantly over the whole earth, is seriously marred by the hideousness of sin. My Father's justice demands reparation. Tell My people to offer their actions in reparation for all the sins whereby the Triune God is so much offended. My Heart cries out for reparation, especially for sins committed against My Eucharistic presence. My Heart hates sin, but loves the sinner. All who are sorry for their sins will find in My Heart overflowing graces of mercy.

"My people should receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation often, even if they have no serious sins to confess. The graces of this Sacrament give powerful graces for the fight against temptation. I am Lord and Master. Please do as I request!"

Reflection: In our determination to avoid sin, let us often recall the terrible sufferings which sin caused Our Loving Savior: the cruel crowning with thorns, the tearing of His sacred flesh by the soldiers' merciless scourging, the heartless hammering of nails through His sacred hands and feet, and all the rest. Who can prayerfully look upon the suffering Christ and not be repulsed by the hideousness of sin?

Excerpt from March 24, 2001 Daily Message

Messenger:      When one individual sees themselves
                     superior or maintains an attitude that
                     they do not need to mix with the others
                     and lives in a community, the community
                     life of the others is effected.

                          I will give you a parable. One man wanted
                     something and worked toward that goal. He
                     saw himself as self-sufficient. He only
                     would work by himself and he needed the assistance
                     of others to accomplish his goal.

                          Because of his desire to be alone, to be in control
                     of the situation, not wanting to ever let go
                     of the control, he could not work in community.
                     He only saw his work being done in isolation.
                     Even though he may have a wider goal, the inability
                     of the individual to let down his own
                     personal walls which can end in isolation
                     a great amount of the time, stops the work 
                     which is needed to accomplish the goal.

                          God has put us here on earth to learn to
                     love God and love one another, to work
                     hand in hand.

                          Our purpose is to grow in the ways of God.



Matthew 22: 37-39

‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and the first commandment. The second resembles it: You must love your neighbour as yourself.

Messenger:      Look at the ant hill. They have a job
                     to do. How would it look if there were
                     a mass of willful ants?

                          How would it look if they all worked

                          When mothers and fathers truly love their
                     children, they try to work with the willful
                     ones to build a community of love. All
                     different problems may arise there which
                     we will not discuss.

                          In communities the superior must truly
                     love those under them and deal with them
                     in love, but people who really refuse to
                     live in a community in love
                     can cause massive problems for unity
                     and community life.

                          Father Carter clearly spoke to me of one of the
                     great stumbling blocks to the spiritual life: it is lack
                     of humility.

                          He wrote this article in his 20 page
                     Newsletter on humility when he told me
                     that statement.

                          From the Newsletter I quote.



Excerpt from priestly newsletter, Shepherds of Christ, Issue 3, 2000


Humility is a very important virtue given to us for the spiritual journey.

Humility is both the realization of what we are as creatures of God and the concrete implementation of this realization in our Christian lives. Humility, therefore, is not an exercise in self-depreciation; it is not telling yourself that you are no good, that you really have nothing of any significance to contribute to the service of God. Humility is based on truth. It is compatible with the recognition that God has given a person certain gifts, even great gifts, of nature and grace. If we do not recognize our God-given gifts, we do not thank God for them as we should, nor properly develop these gifts according to His will. God wants us not only to recognize the good that is in us, but also to realize the source of this goodness. Although we have a responsibility to cooperate with His graces, God is the One Who is chiefly responsible for what we are. If one person has advanced to a level in the Christian life that is beyond the level of another, it is ultimately because God has given that person greater graces.

If humility is based on truth and, consequently, allows us to properly recognize our gifts, it also necessitates that we admit to the evil within us, which is also part of the truth and must be acted upon. Humility not only bids us to admit that there is evil in us, but also tells us that, as creatures of God, we should conform to His will and work against this evil side of our persons. In summary, humility allows us to properly evaluate both the good and evil within ourselves.

Here is a quotation from St. Paul which helps us to preserve, and grow in, humility: Who made you so important? What have you got that was not given to you? And if it was given to you, why are you boasting as though it were your own? (1 Cor 4:7).

And in the Letter of James we read: Humble yourselves before the Lord and he will lift you up. (Jm 4:10)

March 24, 2001 message continues

Messenger:      As one praying for the renewal of the Church
                     and the world, it is silly to think we
                     can have a major part in this, if we
                     truly fail to work with our own imperfections
                     and the desires within ourselves to want to
                     isolate and not work with others.

                          This is not to say that some people have 
                     different personalities, some more outgoing
                     and vibrant, some more quiet, but the
                     people that are always judging others
                     and criticizing them, unhealthily making
                     themselves above and others below them,
                     can be a party to spiritual pride.

                          No one likes to be accused of this, but in
                     order to live and operate in oneness, the
                     leaders must be recognized as leaders and
                     those under them, must surrender
                     to their position or there is havoc. There is a
                     constant battle amongst the members of
                     the community seeking superiority causing
                     pressure on the leader.

                          It can be seen very clearly in the family
                     when the teenage son or daughter wishes
                     their own way.

                          Let's face it, we are here to grow in the
                     spiritual life. We want to mature in our
                     ways of relating. In interacting with others
                     intimately we see our faults and we try
                     with God's grace to change them.

                          Many people will not admit they have
                     any imperfections. They see themselves as
                     perfect. They just don't get too close to
                     anyone else because they don't 
                     want anyone to see they
                     are imperfect. They live in a world that is not
                     true for we are all imperfect.

                          In working with each other in an intimate
                     way we allow others to see the real self
                     and if we continue to work toward oneness
                     we must change many things that lead to
                     disharmony with others.

                          Married couples can become one and let each
                     other see their imperfections. It can take
                     a lifetime to continually bring out hidden
                     faults we have.

                          There is a purification process that takes
                     place here on earth as we allow ourselves to 
                     be seen in our imperfections and struggle
                     to change for our good and the good of

                          There is so much work that is
                     blocked because people refuse to let
                     down their superior walls 
                     and work with each other.

                          Think of many hands working together, all
                     "chipping in", giving of themselves to accomplish
                     the work.

                          Think of one person who wants to run on their
                     own schedule and so they never come and
                     work with the others, they just plan everything
                     around their own way.

                          When I first needed to put out these writings,
                     I knew I couldn't do it alone. It took a team.
                     It took my good friend Ellen to help me type, I
                     couldn't type very good, she typed a "mile a 
                     minute", she typed all the Blue Books in a 

                          I had to have help. I had to go to others
                     and depend on them to help me.               

                         Father Carter discerned every word. He disciplined
                     himself and gave a lot of time. It is because 
                     he believed the Blue Books were as much his as mine,
                     he told me. We had to work with people to put
                     the books together. The Blue Book III was held
                     up for two years because of the inability
                     of one to smoothly work together to get it
                     out. Father Carter had to discern it a couple of
                     times. The rest of the Blue Books were blocked.
                     It was a lot of work to get out the Blue Books
                     and many helped in their own way.

                          I cried about the Red Rosary book. Father
                     Carter prayed every day at Mass for it.



March 24, 2001 message continues

Messenger:      I thought it would never go out and I knew
                     the deadline Mary and Jesus gave me that it was
                     to get to the Associates before Christmas. Now
                     I know why Mary and Jesus wanted the Red 
                     Rosary Book out for December 17, 1996. It was so
                     hard because we were dependent on so many
                     people that didn't work together.



March 24, 2001 message continues

Messenger:      Today the writings are out there because we are
                     learning more and more how to work with each
                     other to do it.

                          None of the writings would be out there, or the
                     Movement formed if everyone was working
                     their own plan.

                          They all work together.

                          It is a big problem if everybody has to
                     work through a lot of problems personally
                     whenever they work with anybody even to do a 

                          Some people always have to control.

                          Some people have to work on their own

                          Some people won't ever do what you ask
                     them to do, they have to change it some
                     way that gives them a piece in it. It 
                     throws off the plan.

                          Look at the symphony if every player
                     played their own tune.

                          Yuk!! What a gross melody.

                          Look at the symphony when all precisely
                     follow the conductor.

                          A lot of work is not being accomplished because
                     people just won't let down their own walls and
                     chip in.

                          A lot of work is being stopped.

                          When every one has the same plan. When they
                     really want to help bring about the Reign of
                     the Sacred Heart with their whole heart and become
                     handmaids of the Lord, great things will be accomplished.

                          I do look at Florida. Our responsibility
                     is to work in love for Jesus. We work
                     within the Movement in love. We don't
                     have plans with others on the outside
                     that take us away from doing His plan
                     the way He wants.

                          We are following the direction God is
                     giving us to help bring about the Reign
                     of the Sacred Heart. We work as a unit on 
                     His plan. We love and respect each others 
                     differences, but we work in love as one.

                          I give you the picture of Jesus. Since  
                     Father Carter's death Jesus has appeared
                     on the building.

Messenger:      I was sent to Florida for the filming
                     of a documentary March 22, 2001. Before

                          Look at the picture of Jesus on the cross
                     at Immaculata.



Excerpt from January 19, 1999 Daily Message

Messenger: I saw Him at the point of death on the cross December 5, 1996, after Mary appeared 500 times.

He hung, all battered, greatly weakened. His mouth moved very clearly. It seems that a man in His condition could not move His mouth to that extent.

Later in the rosary that night, He gave messages and said: "No one was listening."

Messenger:      Look at the picture of Jesus February 5, 2001.

                          Since Father's death Jesus has appeared
                     on the building, He is leading the Movement.

                     and other priests and bishops are

                     as He appeared on the building March 22, 2001

Jesus speaks:      I state clearly, so much work is not
                         accomplished because you will not work

                              I want you to pull together and work as
                         a body. All must realize they are imperfect
                         and try to do the job the way God
                         intends. All get together, you work together
                         to accomplish the task in love. If one person
                         can never make a mistake, so they think,
                         you won't be able to work together. You must
                         be humble and work to do the job and serve
                         Me in love.

                              You are growing in the spiritual life when you
                         work in love with one another. You will be more
                         advanced in the spiritual life when you work in love.
                         Do you think My Father likes your disharmony?

                              I give you the gift of Myself truly
                         present in the Eucharist, how can 
                         you complain?

                              My Mother is appearing on the building.
                         I am appearing on the building.

                              Please help Me. How can you argue
                         when you are given such gifts?

                              I give to you the writing of your founder
                         on the Church.

                              To help renew the Church, to be a 
                         good priest, you must be humble.
                         You realize you are under God. You
                         realize you must work as a family in

                              Learning how to work together in love is
                         the purpose of My Movement. My Movement
                         exists to tell the world of My love.

                              See how they love one another.

                              The people in the Movement must work
                         together in love. They must work on one plan,
                         to help renew the Church and the world.

                              I wish the Chapter on the Church from
                         Father Carter's book Response to God's Love
                         appear here at the end of the writing.
                         I want you to study it.

                              How can men lead the Church when
                         they won't work together? How can you
                         lead the Church if you do not recognize
                         those over you? I always operate in
                         structure. Power comes from Me through the
                         people in charge. Those that cannot obey
                         authority, when authority is trying 
                         to do God's will, make themselves head.

                              I am the Head of My Body the Church.

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.

Help me to circulate my red and blue
