                Mary:

                America America —

                    do you not see that I appeared to give you at Clearwater
                    a message from your heavenly Father —

 

                Look my children at the beauty of your
                    country —

 

 

 

                My children —

                God has blessed you and you are to be
                    united thanking Him, obeying Him and
                    enjoying His gifts by loving one —
                    another —

                Instead the devil has tempted men to disobey
                    God's law and to be hateful

                Remember 2001

 

               

                Oh America, I appeared in the sunny
                    state of Florida to tell you the
                    messages of God's love —

                    Children pray as Jesus has instructed you —
                praying for the priests, the Church and the
                world — honoring My Immaculate Heart and
                Jesus' Sacred Heart — the Hearts of purest
                love

                    For America how tall are your tallest
                buildings and look at the twin towers —

                    Oh America heed my message
                    Oh America heed the message of God's Blue Book

                For how tall are your cities that never sleep —
                    in darkness are you really dark —

                    America
                    God is light
                    God is love

                    You cannot be selfish
                    You cannot murder babies in the womb —

                How tall are the buildings over babies
                    who are murdered to get what you
                    call happiness —

                Oh Washington D.C. — such fine men who
                    sacrificed to make your country so
                    great you said
                            "In God we Trust"

                When I appeared in sunny Florida people
                    would not listen for they didn't want
                    to change —

                Are your laws based "In God we Trust"

                Oh America your rivers are wide —
                                    your grasses are green —
                                    your buildings are high —

                You are to live in the motto, America
                        "In God we Trust"

                Not in spiritual bankruptcy —
                but in spiritual bounty —

 

                Oh America pray as My Son has told you —

                America —
                    golden fields — 

 

                Oh America

                    icy hearts and beauteous land

 

 

 


 

                America —

                    God has blessed you
                    You are to have hearts of love —
                    Rear your children on love rooted
                        in God

                Oh America I appear in Clearwater and
                    I cry

 

Mary's Message
from the Rosary of August 27, 1996

Mary:  I stood beneath the cross of my Son, and my Heart was in such pain for I saw Him before my eyes. I saw Him covered with blood. I saw Him die. My Heart, my children, my Heart to watch my Son, but my Heart, my Heart, how I suffered for my little children of the world that give in to this world and give up the love of my Son. O my little children of light, I give you this message. Carry this light into the darkness for your Mother Mary, for I stood beneath the cross and I cried. I cried for the little ones. I cried for the young ones, the ones that do not care and will lose their souls. How do I make you see for you will not listen to me? What can I do? I come. I appear. I beg. I plead. I give you these gifts from my Son, and you reject me. I do not deliver messages very often anymore for I have been ignored. The message is the same. You do not read the messages I have given to you. Please help me. Help the little children. I appear. I appear. I appear, and I am ignored. I stood beneath the cross, and I cried. I cried, and my Heart was in such anguish for my little children, for I am searching for them this day as I searched for the Child Jesus. Please, please help me. I cannot hold back the hand of my Son any longer. I am Mary, your Mother. I ask you to help my children. You are my children of light.

end of Mary's Message, August 27, 1996

   

                Oh America —

                    Let the light of the Light House light
                        your way

 

 

                Oh America —

                    look at your foundries, your
                    labor — your big cities
                    of commerce

                Oh America — so richly blessed —

                Where is your God? Are you mindful of Him
                    amongst all you focus on?

                Oh America - God the Father sent me to
                    deliver this message —

                Listen to me — America before it
                    gets any later

 

                Spread the Blue Books
                Spread the Rosary Books
                Spread the prayer chapters and pray —

                America go to the tabernacle and pray —

                Bars that rock all day and all night —

                I want you to listen to Jesus and spread
                    the Blue Books

 

 

                Bridges are meant to connect places —
                    My children you are to be united —
                    not live isolated, selfish lives —

                My children — live to love

                St. Louis — cross roads —
                        let the country be one in God

                Oh my children listen to me —
                    Unite and love for
                    hatred and greed will destroy you
                    You can 'rot' from within —

                Oh America see me — see your
                    railroads, roads, airways —
                    so much time for pleasure and
                    yet so many forget God 

 

 

                So much, my children, has been given to you —
                So much land, so much beauty —

                Do you spread love —
                Do you pray for America
                Do you obey God's laws —

                Oh children, offend God — NO LONGER
                You have been given animals, rain,
                sun light, stars and
                do you ever say thanks to God with all your
                heart

                What is happening to your Churches, America —

                Pray the rosary at home

                Tall buildings — no time for building God's
                    Kingdom

                America — God the Father allowed me to
                    appear to deliver this message —

                Land and highways — Oh America hear me —
                Where are you going if you ignore God —

                I am Mary your Mother I love you —

                Look at the beauty of your hills, the
                    Rockies, Lake Meade —
                    how could you make angels blush
                    as you do so many evil things —
                    America — you must be holy —
                    not rebellious —

                Oh America, I am your spiritual Mother —
                    don't hide your eyes to the grand
                    design of your heavenly Father —

                I speak to you —

                I have appeared to you —
                Help me reach my children

                Magnificent beauty God has given in
                    your waters and land —
                    in your children —

                What about the beauty of your soul —
                    America listen to me

                I appear Our Lady of Clearwater —

                America you take it for granted
                        life,
                        the sun,
                        the waters
                        etc. —

                America listen to me

                Let the beauty God gives you in your
                    rivers and lands be a sign of God's
                    Might

                Look at the vastness of the sky —
                    the wonders of the earth —
                    the love Jesus had to die for all —

                Jesus:
                America, America, land of plenty—
                    why do you persecute Me —
                    I died for the souls on this earth
                    today —

                    I call you to reach them —
                    Snow, Sun, Ice, Green lands,
                    Trees, stars and sunlight

                America you are called by God to
                    teach what you have been taught

                                                                                    July 6, 2009 

Dear Friend,

     I give my heart to Jesus and Mary with you in love.    

     God wants us to pray – to lay down our
lives, we who are members of the Body of
Christ to know as Jesus said

I am the vine, you are the branches. Whoever
remains in me and I in him will bear much fruit,
because without me you can do nothing. (
John 15:5)

     Jesus is the vine – Life is in Him –

     Through His pierced Heart on Calvary – the
Church was born – water and blood flowed from
His pierced Heart.

     Water for Baptism.
     Blood for the Eucharist.

     As members of the body of Christ –
we are to live pure lives, one in
the pure and holy Hearts of Jesus and Mary – the
New Adam and the New Eve – Mary said this at
Fatima. We are to consecrate ourselves, families,
churches, schools, nations to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary –

     We, as members of the Body of Christ, are
under the head, Jesus, we live as children
of the Father – one happy family, in the
Holy Spirit – the Spirit of truth – Life in the Spirit

The Father, Son and Holy Spirit live in the graced
baptized soul – what a gift – God lives in
us. We are a light to the world.

     In these short years we are here God works
in our lives. Jesus touches the souls in a special
way through our love because we live for
His honor and glory – our purpose to do all things
for the honor and glory of God letting go of inordinate
attachments that drive us from Him. 

     Every act we do is united to the Mass
going on around the world – The Mass the
sacrifice of Calvary, sacramentally made
present – all our actions a sacrifice, an
offering one with the Holy Sacrifice of the
Mass – offered to the Father, in the Holy Spirit
with all the angels and saints – We are one
as members of the body of Christ – united
so deeply living our lives according to
the Father’s will in love – living to help
strengthen the body of Christ and the world –

     We must pray for the priests now more
than ever and for the Church –

     They conquered him by the blood of the
Lamb and by the word of their testimony;
love for life did not deter them from death.
(
Revelation 12:11

     The priests bring us the Eucharist –

     The Church and the priest can help us so
much in this troubled world – more than
anything else with the Might of God behind us.

     They must pray their Morning Offering –
being holy and spreading the Blood of Jesus
on the people of the World and the Church –
praying for a deeper outpouring of the Holy Spirit
and casting out the devil.

     People come who can try these precious
priests and they must focus on their duty to
celebrate Mass and administer the sacraments and
offer up their whole lives united to the Mass
in all they do for the sake of souls – One person can be sent by
satan to try us and yet God has called our
priests to this calling, a gift to the Church and
the world to give their lives for the sake of souls –

     What a gift

     I wrote the song enclosed about how
a priest is a gift from God.

     Thank you for all you do to help us for
the Church and the world. 

     We must unite in the Morning Offering and live
lives doing God’s will in love.
     We try to reach people in Nursing Homes with
this card – to just live their lives in peace – united
to the Mass for the priests, the Church and the world –
The card is enclosed. 

     We try to reach the children in schools with
the rosary, consecration and Morning Offering,
the Tiny Tots, the families, but mostly prayer
for the priests, the Church and the world – We our-
selves living lives according to the Father’s will
in love united to the Mass – the sacrifice
of Calvary – sacramentally made present –

     Believe – Hope – Love, Jesus is the King
of Kings – He is truly present in the Eucharist,
through the hands of consecrated priests
and Jesus is truly with us –

     Alleluia, Believe, God is all powerful and
the priests and the Church under the Holy Father
is the key – God is with us

     Jesus is the vine – We are the branches –
our lives are rooted in Him.

With much love in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, 
 
Rita Ring, Co-founder
Shepherds of Christ Ministries

                R. God speaks to us through Creation —

                All creation bears the handprint of God.

                We must pray to see through the eyes of
                    God and answer the calling we
                    received in baptism to reach
                    others with this message —

                This is love reaching out with this message
                    of truth, prayer —

                Many do not know about the Catholic Church —
                Some have abandoned their calling —

                God created the world out of nothing —
                God has all the Power —

                We are to obey God and be holy —
                    not rebellious —

                God created us
                    each man has dignity

                All was created by God for
                    purpose and meaning

                God is light —

                    I. God calls

                    II. God intends us to follow His WILL.

                CALL

                RESPONSE

                Thus Fr. Carter's Response to God's Love

                God is Almighty
                God is the Master —

 

Genesis 1: 26-27

     God said, ‘Let us make man in our own image, in the likeness of ourselves, and let them be masters of the fish of the sea, the birds of heaven, the cattle, all the wild animals and all the creatures that creep along the ground.’

    God created man in the image of himself,
    in the image of God he created him,
    male and female he created them.

  

                God created a peaceful, beautiful,
                    loving, harmonious, orderly,
                    good world without sin,
                    violence or evil —

                God created the world out of love —

 

 

                God gives us what we need —
                God puts man in a garden —

                Man is to bear fruit for the Kingdom —

                Original sin is a lack of respect for one's
                    dependence on the Creator

 

Isaiah 5: 20

Woe to those who call what is bad, good, 
    and what is good, bad, 
who substitute darkness for light 
    and light for darkness, 
who substitute bitter for sweet 
    and sweet for bitter.

 

                The devil wants people to try to convince
                    others 'right is wrong' and
                            'wrong is right' —

                The devil is the father of lies —
                Jesus is the way, the truth and
                    the life —

                The devil is cunning —

                The devil makes good look evil and evil
                    look good —

                Man has a free will to choose God's will or
                    to go against God's will and
                    choose sin

                Man prefers himself to God
                    when he sins —

                God gives us baptism and a
                    sharing of His life —

                A man who sins wants to be
                    independent of God —

                Because sin enters the world —
                    the harmony of creation is distorted —

                We see God with distorted vision —
                We see each other with distorted vision —
                We see ourselves with distorted vision

                7 deadly sins

                    Pride, Greed, Envy, Wrath, Lust, Gluttony, Sloth

                Blame enters the world

                Seeking dominance for dominance
                    sake

                God is All Powerful despite
                    the devil and fall of man —

                The devil is subject to God's
                    power —

                Cain was firstborn of Adam

                Cain's sin was grave — premeditated

                Cain was jealous of Abel

                Cain killed his brother —

                Doing good is the reward itself —
                    to please God —

                The devil lurks —

                The devil wants men angry and
                    be ready to 'lunge'
                    on others because of
                    anger and pride

                How can you be 'angry' and think you
                    will be 'happy' —

                Anger is an energy and when one continues to harbor
                    anger — it keeps coming out because it is an energy —

                God created man in His image
                    and likeness — Man was blessed —

                Man sinned

                God flooded the earth at the
                    time of Noah        

                I see a negative energy, passion
                    in one boiling in anger —
                    like lighting TNT with a match —
                    the jealousy — the priest called yesterday
                        'burning eyes of jealousy'
                    Envy is usually acted out in hatred

                The hatred one has is in them and
                    they keep filling with
                    volatile hatred while others
                    grow in love —

                But they don't contain their
                    anger, jealousy, envy,
                    greed — they act out these
                    deadly sins on others —
                    provoking — growing in
                    greater self confinement and
                    exploding on others through
                    provoking ways to get a
                    result — like an arrow sent
                    in action —
                    growing in anger is hatred —
                    hatred is not like God —

 

Matthew 22:36-40

'Master, which is the greatest commandment of the Law?' Jesus said to him, '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. On these two commandments hang the whole Law, and the Prophets too.'

 

                The greatest commandment
                    commands us to love —
                    a person full of hate is
                    like a spray can —
                    they release it and it grows
                    more volatile —

                Where they were to grow in love —
                    they hurt God and others
                    being unloving

                Our relationships of love with
                    God and love according to
                    God's will of others —
                    leads to happiness

                Hatred — acted out anger and jealousy,
                    envy, pride —
                    leads to misery —
                    this distances us from
                    others

                Love unites —
                hate divides —

                Love is happiness if we are
                    loving as God intends

                Hatred is misery

                Song: Why Do We Hurt the Ones We Love

 

Given July 7, 2009

                Song of America

                Mary: My precious America I appeared
                    in Clearwater because I love
                    you so very much —

                I want to tell you — you must
                    obey the laws of your heavenly Father

                I give you so much love and as a
                    Mother of love I deliver a message
                    that tells you the truth —

                With all your bridges and water you
                    live more and more ignoring your
                    God, the commandments and
                    His Word —

                Look America at your beautiful autumn
                    trees — so glorious, but reminding
                    you that growth has its day to
                    flower and to die —

                Long cold winter nights telling you it is
                    a time to take stock and to
                    prepare for the days of beauty that come
                    and go with the seasons —

                Your buildings tower bigger as men see
                    their plans tower over others men's
                    plans and you say

                    "who will be over the other?"
                    "who will be greater among men?"

                Your building should be to give honor and glory
                    to God —

                Your lives lived to reverence, serve and
                    praise your God —

                    Where is your 'power seat' America?

                    The Vatican is the seat of the Church
                when the pope resides — and if you
                look over the last century alone since
                I appeared at Fatima how your popes
                have been so very important to the unity
                and spirituality of this world —

 

 

 

                    Your buildings tower over like your
                personalities — are they to serve man-kind —
                are they to lead men to heaven? Is this your
                goal America —

                America, America, land of plenty I have
                appeared to you —

 

Our Lady of Clearwater Florida

                    The Holy Spirit will fill you with
                light and you will know the truth I
                speak, but my children you must
                believe, you must have faith — your
                lives rooted in the Gospel of Jesus and
                praying your rosary —

                    I cry out to you once again with
                tears of blood and I say my children —
                pray the 7 sorrows — meditate on the

Mary's Message
from the Rosary of August 27, 1996

Mary:  I stood beneath the cross of my Son, and my Heart was in such pain for I saw Him before my eyes. I saw Him covered with blood. I saw Him die. My Heart, my children, my Heart to watch my Son, but my Heart, my Heart, how I suffered for my little children of the world that give in to this world and give up the love of my Son. O my little children of light, I give you this message. Carry this light into the darkness for your Mother Mary, for I stood beneath the cross and I cried. I cried for the little ones. I cried for the young ones, the ones that do not care and will lose their souls. How do I make you see for you will not listen to me? What can I do? I come. I appear. I beg. I plead. I give you these gifts from my Son, and you reject me. I do not deliver messages very often anymore for I have been ignored. The message is the same. You do not read the messages I have given to you. Please help me. Help the little children. I appear. I appear. I appear, and I am ignored. I stood beneath the cross, and I cried. I cried, and my Heart was in such anguish for my little children, for I am searching for them this day as I searched for the Child Jesus. Please, please help me. I cannot hold back the hand of my Son any longer. I am Mary, your Mother. I ask you to help my children. You are my children of light.

Pray For The Success Of The Priestly Newsletter - Shepherds of Christ

R. The following is the first official message I received before the statue of Mary at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center. It is a personal message for Father Carter.

Mary: (in front of the glowing statue of Our Lady of Sorrows) I am the Immaculate Heart. My Heart is glowing for love of all my beloved children. I am your most loving Mother. I am with you this day. Pray for the success of the priestly newsletter Shepherds of Christ. I am guarding your way. You will receive such graces to accomplish this task! Grace from God is so abundantly bestowed on you and will lead to the success of this endeavor! Pray for this cause at the Center. The priests will lead the people to the love of My beloved Son. This is no little task. It will take many prayers and graces. Pray hard, little one. Your prayers will change many hearts.

I am Mary, your Immaculate Mother. I bring this message to My beloved priest-son.

                God will bless you with spiritual

                Give God reverence — praise Him —

                Thanks Him for the gifts America —

                You are RICHLY BLESSED —

                God loves you so —

Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus

My dear fellow Associate Members,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  1. For the spread of the devotion to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary culminating in the reign of the Sacred Heart and the triumph of the Immaculate Heart.

  2. For the Pope.

  3. For all bishops of the world.

  4. For all priests.

  5. For all sisters and brothers in the religious life.

  6. For all members of the Shepherds of Christ Movement, and for the spread of this movement to the world.

  7. For all members of the Catholic Church.

  8. For all members of the human family.

  9. For all souls in purgatory.

Daniel 7: 9-10, 13-14

            While I was watching, 
        thrones were set in place
        and one most venerable took his seat.
        His robe was white as snow,
        the hair of his head as pure as wool.
        His throne was a blaze of flames,
        its wheels were a burning fire.
        A stream of fire poured out,
        issuing from his presence.
        A thousand thousand waited on him,
        ten thousand times ten thousand
           stood before him.
        The court was in session
        and the books lay open.

        I was gazing into the visions of the night,
       when I saw,
           coming on the clouds of heaven,
       as it were a son of man.
       He came to the One most venerable
       and was led into his presence.
       On him was conferred rule,
       honour and kingship,
       and all peoples, nations and languages
           became his servants.
       His rule is an everlasting rule
       which will never pass away,
       and his kingship will never come to an end.

 

Psalm 97: 1-2, 5-6, 9

           Yahweh is king! Let earth rejoice, 
        the many isles be glad!
        Cloud, black cloud enfolds him,
        saving justice and judgement the foundations of his throne.

        The mountains melt like wax,
        before the Lord of all the earth.
        The heavens proclaim his saving justice,
        all nations see his glory.

        For you are Yahweh,
        Most High over all the earth,
        far transcending all gods.

 

2 Peter 1: 16-19

When we told you about the power and the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, we were not slavishly repeating cleverly invented myths; no, we had seen his majesty with our own eyes. He was honoured and glorified by God the Father, when a voice came to him from the transcendent Glory, This is my Son, the Beloved; he enjoys my favour.  We ourselves heard this voice from heaven, when we were with him on the holy mountain.

So we have confirmation of the words of the prophets; and you will be right to pay attention to it as to a lamp for lighting a way through the dark, until the dawn comes and the morning star rises in your minds.

 

Mark 9: 2-10

Six days later, Jesus took with him Peter and James and John and led them up a high mountain on their own by themselves. There in their presence he was transfigured: his clothes became brilliantly white, whiter than any earthly bleacher could make them. Elijah appeared to them with Moses; and they were talking to Jesus. Then Peter spoke to Jesus, ‘Rabbi,’ he said, ‘it is wonderful for us to be here; so let us make three shelters, one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.’ He did not know what to say; they were so frightened. And a cloud came, covering them in shadow; and from the cloud there came a voice, ‘This is my Son, the Beloved. Listen to him.’ Then suddenly, when they looked round, they saw no one with them any more but only Jesus.

As they were coming down from the mountain he warned them to tell no one what they had seen, until after the Son of man had risen from the dead. They observed the warning faithfully, though among themselves they discussed what ‘rising from the dead’ could mean.

 

Psalm 90: 2, 3-5, 12-14, 16

Before the mountains were born,
before the earth and the world came to birth,
from eternity to eternity you are God.

You bring human beings to the dust,
by saying, ‘Return, children of Adam.’
A thousand years are to you
like a yesterday which has passed,
like a watch of the night.

You flood them with sleep
—in the morning they will be like growing grass: 

Teach us to count up the days that are ours,
and we shall come to the heart of wisdom.
Come back, Yahweh! How long must we wait?
Take pity on your servants.

Each morning fill us with your faithful love,
we shall sing and be happy all our days;

Show your servants the deeds you do,
let their children enjoy your splendour!

   

                R. God intends us to work

 

Genesis 3: 17-19

     To the man he said, ‘Because you listened to the voice of your wife and ate from the tree of which I had forbidden you to eat,

   Accursed be the soil because of you!
   Painfully will you get your food from it
   as long as you live.
   It will yield you brambles and thistles,
   as you eat the produce of the land.
   By the sweat of your face
   will you earn your food,
   until you return to the ground,
   as you were taken from it.
   For dust you are
   and to dust you shall return.’

    

Colossians 3: 1-11

Since you have been raised up to be with Christ, you must look for the things that are above, where Christ is, sitting at God’s right hand. Let your thoughts be on things above, not on the things that are on the earth, because you have died, and now the life you have is hidden with Christ in God. But when Christ is revealed—and he is your life—you, too, will be revealed with him in glory.

That is why you must kill everything in you that is earthly: sexual vice, impurity, uncontrolled passion, evil desires and especially greed, which is the same thing as worshipping a false god; it is precisely these things which draw God's retribution upon those who resist. And these things made up your way of life when you were living among such people, but now you also must give up all these things: human anger, hot temper, malice, abusive language and dirty talk; and do not lie to each other. You have stripped off your old behaviour with your old self, and you have put on a new self which will progress towards true knowledge the more it is renewed in the image of its Creator; and in that image there is no room for distinction between Greek and Jew, between the circumcised and uncircumcised, or between barbarian and Scythian, slave and free. There is only Christ: he is everything and he is in everything.

 

Zechariah 2: 5-9, 14-15

Then, raising my eyes, I had a vision. There was a man with a measuring line in his hand. I asked him, 'Where are you going?' He said, 'To measure Jerusalem, to calculate her width and length.' And then, while the angel who was talking to me walked away, another angel came out to meet him. He said to him, 'Run, and tell that young man this, "Jerusalem is to remain unwalled, because of the great number of men and cattle inside. For I–Yahweh declares–shall be a wall of fire all round her and I shall be the Glory within her." '

Sing, rejoice, daughter of Zion, for now I am coming to live among you -Yahweh declares! And on that day many nations will be converted to Yahweh. Yes, they will become his people, and they will live among you. Then you will know that Yahweh Sabaoth has sent me to you!

 

Matthew 25: 6

But at midnight there was a cry, "Look! The bridegroom! Go out and meet him."

 

John 14: 14

If you ask me anything in my name,
I will do it.

   

Readings Today's Mass

Genesis 32: 23-33

That same night he got up and, taking his two wives, his two slave-girls and his eleven children, crossed the ford of the Jabbok. After he had taken them across the stream, he sent all his possessions over too. And Jacob was left alone.

    Then someone wrestled with him until daybreak who, seeing that he could not master him, struck him on the hip socket, and Jacob's hip was dislocated as he wrestled with him. He said, "Let me go, for day is breaking." Jacob replied, "I will not let you go unless you bless me." The other said, "What is your name?" "Jacob," he replied. He said, "No longer are you to be called Jacob,  but Israel since you have shown your strength against God and men and have prevailed." Then Jacob asked, "Please tell me your name." He replied, "Why do you ask my name?" With that, he blessed him there.

    Jacob named the place Peniel, "Because I have seen God face to face," he said, "and have survived." The sun rose as he passed Peniel, limping from his hip. That is why to this day the Israelites do not eat the thigh sinew which is at the hip socket: because he had struck Jacob at the hip socket on the thigh sinew.

 

Matthew 9: 32-38

They had only just left when suddenly a man was brought to him, a dumb demoniac. And when the devil was driven out, the dumb man spoke and the people were amazed and said, ‘Nothing like this has ever been seen in Israel.’ But the Pharisees said, ‘It is through the prince of devils that he drives out devils.’

Jesus made a tour through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and curing all kinds of disease and all kinds of illness. 

    And when he saw the crowds he felt sorry for them because they were harassed and dejected, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, ‘The harvest is rich but the labourers are few, so ask the Lord of the harvest to send out labourers to his harvest.’

 

The Angelus

The Angel of the Lord declared to Mary:
And she conceived of the Holy Spirit.
Hail Mary . . .

Behold the handmaid of the Lord:
Be it done unto me according to Thy word.
Hail Mary . . .

And the Word was made Flesh:
And dwelt among us.
Hail Mary . . .

Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God,
that we may be made
worthy of the promises of Christ.

Let us pray:
Pour forth, we beseech Thee, O Lord, Thy grace into our hearts that we, to whom the incarnation of Christ, Your Son, was made known by the message of an angel, may by His Passion and Cross be brought to the glory of His Resurrection, through the same Christ Our Lord. Amen.

   

 

Prayer of St. Francis

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love.
Where there is injury, pardon.
Where there is doubt, faith.
Where there is despair, life.
Where there is darkness, light.
Where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled, as to console;
to be understood, as to understand;
to be loved, as to love;
for it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned.
It is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

The Ten Commandments

  1. I am the Lord your God; you shall not have strange gods before Me.

  2. You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain.

  3. Remember to keep holy the Sabbath day.

  4. Honor your father and your mother.

  5. You shall not kill.

  6. You shall not commit adultery.

  7. You shall not steal.

  8. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.

  9. You shall not covet your neighbor's wife.

  10. You shall not covet your neighbor's goods.

   

                    Your trains and planes brought progress, so
                you, many of you, thought you were the
                power — the power is in Jesus —

                    America, listen,
                    Hear me, America —

                    Obey God —
                    Doing God's will to live in peace, love and joy —

                    People have become addicted to excitement —
                many have shut their hearts off from
                God — live in harmony with God's
                Plan — not addicted to misery and excitement —
                Your lack of peace comes from your
                disconnection with God —

                    God is good — The Plan of the Father
                is you serve Him while you are on earth — spreading
                the Kingdom of God on earth — obeying
                His commandments that you would
                receive an everlasting reward and be
                with God forever in heaven because
                of your obedience to God here on
                earth —

                    The devil tempts you to rebel against
                the Father's Plan — the devil is a fallen
                angel — who said "I will not serve God"
                God created man to know, love and serve
                God and by this means to gain his eternal
                reward in heaven —

                    God created the world out of His love
                for men — God is light — God gave
                man a free will to obey His commandments.
                Some angels rebelled against God —
                The devil, the fallen angel, wants
                you to disobey God, to hate, to
                seek confusion, disharmony and
                thereby do work for him — leading
                others away from God and the devil
                wants you living in darkness, be disharmonious,
                selfish, seeking dominance for
                dominance sake, jealous,
                possessive, angry, envious,
                lustful

                    I appear in Clearwater to deliver
                the message you are to be pure — to
                tell you to be baptized — to go to Church —
                to obey the commandments of God —
                to spread the consecration to Our 2 Hearts —
                to put pictures in your homes

                    God gave you bountifully —
                that you would obey Him

                    God gave you plants, animals,
                water, sun —

                    God gave you Himself
                    God gave you the Church
                    God gave you baptism —
                        a sharing in His life

                    Jesus came He died and He rose
                        for love of you —

                    Jesus took on a little baby body
                        for love of you

                    Order and good come in the world
                when men obey the will of God —
                    Disorder and evil when men
                reject the will of God —

                    This is seen in the Bible — my
                children —

                    Read the Bible
                    Go to Church

                    God gives life to men and when
                one dies there is no longer life in
                the body —

                    Where are you going for these few
                short years here on earth, America —

                    God has put you in a garden —
                You are to bear fruit for God's

Excerpt from The Spirituality of Fatima

by Fr. Edward Carter, S.J.

Before receiving the six apparitions of Our Lady, May through October of 1917, the three Fatima visionaries were visited by an angel on three different occasions during the preceding year. He appeared to them in the spring, summer, and fall. Lucia (now Sr. Lucia) describes the springtime apparition of the angel:

"My God, I believe, I adore, I hope and I love You! I ask pardon of You for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not hope and do not love You."

Then, rising he said: "Pray thus. The Hearts of Jesus and Mary are attentive to the voice of your supplications."

His words engraved themselves so deeply on our minds that we could never forget them (3)

During the summer of 1916, the angel again appeared to the three visionaries. He said to them:

Pray! Pray a great deal. The Hearts of Jesus and Mary have merciful designs on you. Offer prayers and sacrifices continually to the Most High. Make everything you do a sacrifice, and offer it as an act of reparation for the sins by which God is offended, and as a petition for the conversion of sinners. Bring peace to our country in this way.... I am the Guardian Angel of Portugal Accept and bear with submission all the sufferings the Lord will send you. (4)

In the fall of the same year, the angel visited the visionaries a final time:

The angel came...bearing a golden chalice in one hand and a Host above it in the other. The amazed children noticed that drops of blood were falling from the Host into the chalice. Presently, the angel left both suspended in mid-air and prostrated himself on the ground, saying this beautiful prayer: "Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, I adore You profoundly. I offer You the most precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ, present in all tabernacles of the world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges, and indifference by which He is offended. By the infinite merits of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and [the intercession of] the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg of Thee the conversion of poor sinners." (5)

Sr. Lucia relates how the angel gave them Communion:

Then, rising, he took the chalice and the Host in his hand. He gave the Sacred Host to me and shared the Blood from the chalice between Jacinta and Francisco, saying as he did so:

"Take and drink the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, horribly outraged by ungrateful men! Make reparation for their crimes and console your God." (6)

Reflecting upon these messages of the angel, we see how much they contain for our spiritual instruction.

Excerpts from The Spirituality of Fatima

by Fr. Edward 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)

                Jesus: I have given you great gifts to
                    know how to pray —

                    You must give yourself to Me in
                your vocation — I am here, but you hold
                yourself at a distance — So I send you
                My letters of love that you will love Me
                so much —

                    To do all you do for Me because
                you love Me so much —

                R. Oh Jesus — I see that you want souls
                to love You, which is why You gave
                us these letters of love — to have this
                personal relationship so deeply with
                souls and You called the servants
                and handmaids and apostles and associates
                in the Shepherds of Christ to help me to spread
                these most tender letters of Your love —
                Jesus You are truly present in the
                Blessed Sacrament — no less present
                than the day You walked the earth —
                Jesus I know Your love is true and
                I want all to know Your love —

                    You want this world that is hungry —
                longing for Your love to be fed by
                such a realization of how truly
                present You are in the Blessed
                Sacrament and for us to long and want
                to serve You, because You call
                us to love and to tell others by
                our example.

                    Look at Jesus as He carries His
                cross for love of us and look at
                His image hanging on the cross —
                look at Jesus' love for us and
                believe in the gifts we receive
                in this great Church —
                God has given to us.

                    It is an honor to serve Him —
                to know He has revealed Himself
                so intimately to us — If we treat our
                vocation like drudgery — we miss the
                gift — to fly on eagle's wings —
                We are fighting His gift of wanting
                such an intimate, loving union
                with Him —

                    To live a life of joy serving
                Him and praying for our great
                Church and the world, for the souls
                Jesus died for —

                    God has called us to help renew
                the Church and the world — how can
                we renew anything with an
                unwilling spirit to live our
                vocation with great love for
                God who called us to serve —

                    Jesus is a God of mercy and love —
                Jesus is not like the worldly men who
                are focused on themselves —

                    Study again the crucifix —
                look at Jesus as He carried His
                cross — see the sufferings of
                Mary and Jesus as They look into
                each others' eyes on the way to
                Calvary —

                    Now you heard the cry of Mary
                for 3 days, why God sent Mary
                at Clearwater and at Fatima to
                cry to the world of the love of the
                Sacred Heart of Jesus and the love
                of her Immaculate Heart —

                    I have seen the Divine Mercy
                Jesus — November 2 and Mary — crying
                out to America to help me do this
                work for the sake of souls —

                    Mary is telling us what to do —
                Priests, religious need this intimacy
                with Jesus — Priests, religious should
                be so in love with Jesus — so
                thankful for the Eucharist and the
                Church — full of love — as Jesus
                for the flock —

                    How is our attitude — like Jesus
                to lay down His life for His flock —
                How are we really growing in our
                vocation of being the Spouse of
                Jesus and working with each other
                for Him in love.

                    We take things for granted and give into
                habits — settle in cubby holes that
                can be spiritual death — what about
                praying for the sinners of this earth —
                making reparation during the
                retreats because we see God is
                offended and deserving of all our love —
                to follow in the footsteps of Jesus
                and Mary — to love with burning
                love — to give —

                We are not to give into our fallen
                    human nature —
                    jealous, envious, prideful,
                    angry, possessive, lust

                Jesus wrote to me the letters of His
                    love in God's Blue Book to
                    FEED THE HUNGRY

                Now I ask you
                Is the world hungry —

                The writings are what priests, sisters,
                    husbands, wives, old people, young
                    people need —

                We were created to know, love and serve
                    God —

                Our happiness depends on our
                    relation with God —

                The closer we are to God — the more
                    happy we are —

                If we go into religious life and do not
                    recognize that we are married to
                    Jesus — we see ourselves as single —
                    we can even see ourselves as
                    deprived, while married people we
                    may think have it so nice —
                    children — little ones —

                Every one who has children are
                    indeed blessed, but God calls
                    religious to be married to Him and
                    the children of the Church, the
                    world are crying —

                One who sees themselves as a religious
                    a priest — must focus on this
                    most intimate love relationship
                    they are to have with Jesus —

                And their role to minister to the
                    children of the Church and world
                    praying for them —

                The fallen angels said
                    "no we will not serve"

                Satan wants people to follow
                    him —
                    say
                    "no we will not serve"
                     be selfish

                What does God want?

                Look at the crucifix —
                    Jesus was selfless —
                    He came in a stable —

                    God wants us to make reparation for
                our sins — God wants us to serve
                Him and Jesus showed us how to serve —

                Look at Jesus on the cross —

                The Mass is the Sacrifice of Calvary,
                Sacramentally made present —

                Death/Resurrection

                God gives us a sharing in His life
                in baptism and Jesus feeds this life
                with Himself in the Eucharist —

                    God calls us
                    and it is our response to His call —
                    God calls us to be holy —

                He took on flesh —
                He walked the earth —
                He suffered telling people the
                    truth —

                He dealt with human men with
                    pride and anger, hatred, lust,
                    selfishness, slothfulness,
                    greed, gluttony

                Jesus endured His suffering for
                    love of us

                Jesus was baptized by John

                Jesus showed Peter, James and John
                    the transfiguration

                TWICE was heard

                "This is My Beloved Son in whom
                    I am well pleased" —

                We are to follow in the footsteps
                    of Jesus — who came to this
                    earth to teach us about
                    being a son and daughter of
                    God the Father —

                Living the Gospel

                Meditating on the Rosary
                is following in the footsteps
                    of Jesus —

                I went into a store today and a woman
                    smiled at me from behind
                    the counter —

                She was so nice —

                I said "you are very kind" —

                She says "I love this, the manager
                    here is so nice — he let's me work
                    10:00 — 2:00 and it is so helpful
                    to me — I love the people and it
                    helps me deal the rest of the day
                    with my husband on dialysis —
                    I thank God — medicine is so good
                    today and then I can be at home for
                    my husband"

                This is being grateful
                This is love

                This is doing what is God's will
                    with your life —
                    smiling and being kind to customers —
                    loving her husband —
                    being glad for the medicine
                        he has

                Jesus: How are you living your life —
                You who have been so richly blessed
                    by Me —
                I have given you My Heart to love —
                I have given you My letters of love in
                                the Blue Books —

                The Shepherds of Christ is a gift that has helped
                    people for over 15 years —

                I long for their love —

                I was stripped of My garments for you
                I was beaten for your sins —
                My Head crowned with thorns —
                I sweat Blood in the garden —

                I gave the last drop of Blood in
                    My Body for you and the last
                    beat of My Heart

                Do you thank Me for My love
                    revealing more and more of Myself
                    for you —

                Oh the devil says —
                    "more — more — they didn't thank
                        you — you aren't appreciated —
                        don't do it
                    expect more from men and give
                        less to your vocation"

                Jesus says I love you, I love you, I love you —

A City on a Hill Shines to the World  (excerpt)

February 23, 1994 5:30 a.m.

Jesus:  I am the light of the world. A city on a hill will shine to the world. You at the Center will be this city when you are filled to the brim with the love of Jesus. What power, what might, to have each person a personal spouse of Jesus Christ! This is the light to the darkened world. The love of Jesus radiates from the very being of those who love Him. What light when all together are lifted by His love abounding deep within their breasts!

Excerpt from February 4, 2007

Messenger:      What is being a saint?

                            It is saying "yes" in love to what God asks of us.
                            It is doing ordinary things — little things in
                                love for souls and to please Jesus..

end of excerpt

 

Excerpt from May 15, 2009

                Jesus: I ask My people to give with an open, willing, loving
                    heart —

                To say yes
                To be holy —

                Holy means you do not give into satan in punishing
                    others —

end of excerpt

  

Excerpt from May 27, 2009

                God gives us this gift and

                He gives us special graces to help us grow
                    in the spiritual life, but we must
                    say "yes" to God and cooperate with
                    the grace —

 

Excerpt from the February 3, 2009 Rosary   

The Visitation

2. Jesus: You can say 'no', or you can say 'yes'. You can say 'let somebody else do it'. You can say 'God is not talking to me' or 'Mary did not appear on the building'. But in all of it, the bottom line is, you are unwilling to do the helping. You do not want to be bothered. And when you hear Me call you softly in your heart, or I ask you to do something, very explicit, you do not listen, because you do not want to.

end of excerpt
 

Excerpt from the December 12, 2008 Rosary

3 R. ... Why do we walk many times, like stubborn mules, when it is just as easy to say yes, yes, yes, yes, yes. And in that lies our happiness and joy, but that devil comes and he says - "You really know you don't like anybody telling you what to do" — while he is telling you what to do when he says it.

4. Jesus: And so I say to you - whose side are you on? You are either with Me or against Me.

5. Jesus: The calling is from Me and the response is to Me.

      Betty is a handmaid who has prayed in the

        China Church for 11 years. To get from her

        house to the church she uses a walker and

        must go over a creek and a little bridge.

        We wanted a little place she could rest

        by the Church. We need about $1,000 to

        make this happen. Can you help us?

July 31, 1994

Words of Jesus to Members of
Shepherds of Christ Associates:

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

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

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

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