                    Things can happen so very fast —
                We can pull in a parking lot and wait for
                someone pulling out of a parking spot
                and someone not being in touch with
                things can pull in and cause a 3 car
                wreck — instantly while another passes
                on the street and back ends the car
                pulling in — now 4 cars —

                    But all I did — they argue — who
                cares who is right or wrong when a child
                in the car pulling in is killed

                    Is the defense so much on whether
                I am right or wrong — I
                fail to see a child was killed, but
                I continue to argue — I was
                right because being right is
                my god. Being selfish and self-centered —
                while the life of a child is gone from
                their parents and the world —

                    But I argue — oh it wasn't
                my fault —

                    How self-centered are we — a weakness
                of the wounded human nature is being
                selfish instead of other-focused —

                        Is being right our god —
                        Christ died for our wounds — the
                        wounds we lie about to ourselves
                        and inflict on others

                    We must be humble like Mary —

                    Mary is the perfect handmaid of the
                Lord — Mary lived to do God's will —
                Listen to the words of Mary in the
                Magnificat — it was a prescription
                for fallen man from the New Eve —
                Mary's gift affected all of us creatures —

                Mary, Mary, Mary — how pure
                    you are —

                Father, Father, Father — thank You
                    for your gifts to us —

                Thank You Father for Mary —
                    all pure

                Clear - Water —

                    Mary's image appeared in Clearwater on the building in
                        the diocese of St. Petersburg —
                        Mary our Mother so pure —

                Now this retreat is a result of
                    that visit —

                    At the heart of the Fatima message
                is to help make reparation for the offenses
                against the Hearts of Jesus and Mary

                    We are to pray in Clearwater for
                our priests, the Church and the world and to
                help make reparation for our offenses
                against the Hearts of Jesus and Mary

 

Excerpt from The Spirituality of Fatima
                       
by Fr. Edward Carter, S.J.

Before Jacinta died, she told of other messages given her (during her illness) by Mary:

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

19. Our Lady of Fatima's Peace Plan from Heaven (Rockford: TAN Books and Publishers, Inc., 1983)., pp.9-10.

    

                    The seeds we sow come home to roost.
                Who can say — the way our parents raised us —
                their teaching us about God's laws, obedience, the
                commandments, love as opposed to selfishness,
                anger, smart remarks, being fair and discipline — did
                not affect us — the seeds Fr. Carter sowed in love,
                as founder, formed the Movement with the
                writings of Fr. Carter and Jesus gave to me as
                co-founder — The vision set for the Shepherds of Christ
                to me and Fr. Carter is written on my soul.

                    If the man hadn't gone to the parking lot at
                that time in the original story — the child would
                not have died — we all affect each other —

                    We must ask ourselves since we are in the
                state of becoming more like Christ —

                    How must I change —

                    Not how can I make the world more like my
                wounded self so I don't have to change
               
                Mary was the perfect handmaid —
                her agenda was God's agenda
                perfect obedience to God's will
                Mary said "yes" to God

                Mary said at the Marriage at Cana —

 

John 2: 3-5

...'They have no wine.' Jesus said, 'Woman, what do you want from me? My hour has not come yet.' His mother said to the servants, 'Do whatever he tells you.'

 

Luke 1: 46-55 

And Mary said:
My soul proclaims
    the greatness of the Lord
and my spirit rejoices
    in God my Saviour;

because he has looked upon
    the humiliation of his servant.

Yes, from now onwards
    all generations will call me blessed,
for the Almighty
    has done great things for me.
Holy is his name,
and his faithful love extends age after age
    to those who fear him.

He has used the power of his arm,
he has routed the arrogant of heart.
He has pulled down princes
    from their thrones
        and raised high the lowly.
He has filled the starving with good things,
    sent the rich away empty.
He has come to the help
    of Israel his servant,
        mindful of his faithful love

—according to the promise
    he made to our ancestors—
of his mercy to Abraham
    and to his descendants for ever.

  

                God wants unity

                God wants order according to God's will
                We are to help renew the Church and the world —

                ORDER

                We see things parents did coming out on
                    children generations down

                If more would have joined the religious orders —
                    their would be more priests and sisters

                God wants order —

                The Church is to be made up of people
                    who obey — to teach the world about
                    obedience to God's laws.

                Taking God's name in vain can become commonplace
                    in some circles —

                    it is wrong

                    We must do things because it is God's will

                    do things in love —
