Isaiah 32: 15-18

until the spirit is poured out on us 
    from above, 
and the desert becomes an orchard, 
and an orchard that seems like a forest. 

Fair judgement will fix its home 
    in the desert, 
and uprightness live in this orchard, 
and the product of uprightness 
    will be peace, 
the effect of uprightness 
    being quiet and security for ever. 

My people will live in a peaceful home, 
in peaceful houses, tranquil dwellings.


Psalm 8

Yahweh our Lord, 
how majestic is your name throughout the world! 

Whoever keeps singing of your majesty higher than the heavens,
even through the mouths of children, or of babes in arms, 
you make him a fortress, firm against your foes, 
to subdue the enemy and the rebel. 

I look up at your heavens, shaped by your fingers, 
at the moon and the stars you set firmó
what are human beings that you spare a thought for them, 
or the child of Adam that you care for him? 

Yet you have made him little less than a god, 
you have crowned him with glory and beauty, 
made him lord of the works of your hands, 
put all things under his feet, 

sheep and cattle, all of them, 
and even the wild beasts, 
birds in the sky, fish in the sea, 
when he makes his way across the ocean. 

Yahweh our Lord, 
how majestic your name throughout the world!


James 3: 13-18

Anyone who is wise or understanding among you should from a good life give evidence of deeds done in the gentleness of wisdom. But if at heart you have the bitterness of jealousy, or selfish ambition, do not be boastful or hide the truth with lies; this is not the wisdom that comes from above, but earthly, human and devilish. Wherever there are jealousy and ambition, there are also disharmony and wickedness of every kind; whereas the wisdom that comes down from above is essentially something pure; it is also peaceable, kindly and considerate; it is full of mercy and shows itself by doing good; nor is there any trace of partiality or hypocrisy in it. The peace sown by peacemakers brings a harvest of justice.


Matthew 5: 1-12

Seeing the crowds, he went onto the mountain. And when he was
seated his disciples came to him. Then he began to speak. This is
what he taught them:

How blessed are the poor in spirit:
the kingdom of Heaven is theirs.
Blessed are the gentle:
they shall have the earth as inheritance.
Blessed are those who mourn:
they shall be comforted.
Blessed are those
   who hunger and thirst for uprightness:
they shall have their fill.
Blessed are the merciful:
they shall have mercy shown them.
Blessed are the pure in heart:
they shall see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers:
they shall be recognised
   as children of God.
Blessed are those who are persecuted
   in the cause of uprightness:
the kingdom of Heaven is theirs.

Blessed are you when people abuse you and persecute you and
speak all kinds of calumny against you falsely on my account.
Rejoice and be glad, for your reward will be great in heaven; this
is how they persecuted the prophets before you.

   This message was received before a live statue of the Sorrowful Mother after Communion.
   Message from Jesus: "Peace will abound when nations, churches, families and individuals are consecrated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary."
   "Fr. Carter is a pillar of light to the dark world. This is the explanation of the photo. It is through him, I will turn darkness to light. Circulate this message with the picture. Encourage all to consecrate their hearts to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Sacred Heart of Jesus, to join the Shepherds of Christ Chapters, and the Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus Movement to pray for your Church and your world. This is My Movement for renewal of the Church and the world, based in consecration, joining your every act to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, praying the rosary, and making reparation to Our Hearts, especially on First Fridays and First Saturdays. It is through your prayers and sacrifices many souls will be helped to be saved. Grace will flow from those whose hearts are consecrated to Our Hearts and the fire of My Love will light up this darkened world."
   As you look at the picture, you see Fr. Carter's arm and hand on your left. This picture of Fr. Carter was taken July 2, 1996 at the Tuesday Shepherds of Christ Meeting at Tom Arlinghaus' Farm.

end of July 4, 1996 message


Excerpt from October 14, 1998

Messenger:  On July 2, 1996, on Tom's farm, my child was taking pictures. You told me, Jesus, to have him take two pictures of Father Carter. In the second picture, Father Carter appeared as a pillar of light. On July 4, 1996, Our Lady appeared to me and You, Jesus, gave me the following message.


July 4, 2006 message continues

Messenger:        I never watch television but I was looking for
                      the weather today and heard a preacher for a
                      few moments.

                         He was very good and said something like
                    God allows us to be provoked to bring us to a place
                    where we are ready for the big Plan He has in
                    store for us.

                        I know God is teaching me in my trials,
                    but what he said was good.
                    I say this in the suffering we are prepared
                    for the enormous plan God has in store
                    for us.

                        We need to have that
                            advancement in dealing with
                            situations so we can do the
                            tremendous work of His plan
                            for us.

                        God lets us suffer so we can
                    further minister to others who are suffering.

How the Rosary Meditations Began at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center

The message below is from June 16, 1994. Jesus told me to pray the rosary everyday with my children at the Center. When I received this message, there appeared little sparkling lights on my notebook, lights that are like the lights I saw surrounding Mary. I am including this message of June 16, 1994 at 3:15 a.m.

Jesus speaks: Soon your burden will be lifted and you will feel some relief. You must be in constant prayer. Being with your children is a prayer for you. Come to Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center. You feel the Real Presence there. I will give you miracles there. Pray in the chapel with your children. They will become closer to Me through prayer as you spend time praying with them. You need simplicity in your life. Live only for love of Me.

Note: Little white lights on my notebook.

An Explanation of What Is to Follow

Jesus and Mary give me little insights into the Father's plan, little pieces of the puzzle. They do not tell everything that will happen. In order to understand the plan, we need to study all the messages and see how the Father's plan is unfolding. We are all threads of the great tapestry, all little puzzle pieces of the big picture, all so important to His plan.

We are all being called to spread His love to this world. Each soul is so important to His plan. I see now many events as they unfold. I see where Jesus and Mary told me many things and I at the time did not understand. I was told in June that I would see as never before.

On July 4, 1994 I prayed with the children in front of the Our Lady of Grace statue in the sanctuary. On July 5, I recorded our experiences. The statue of Mary continued to glow and come alive. Jesus and Mary told Fr. Carter to pray with the children and me on July 10.

I would see Mary glow. Several weeks later I realized she was appearing in the statue as "Our Lady of Light." She then began to say she was appearing as "Our Lady of Light." She would show me a parade of faces, her clothes would all turn glistening white, and her attire would change. She would appear as a parade of different ladies. Her veils and head coverings would change. She has appeared as many different Marys. Her emotions have varied, her age has varied and her clothing has varied. She has shown me her life in the rosary. In the rosary, we meditate on the lives of Jesus and Mary, from Their young lives to Their older lives, from Their sorrows to Their joys. She takes on many roles as our mother, her mantle forever covering and protecting us.


July 5, 1994 6:30 p.m.

The Statue Of The Sorrowful Mother Was Lit Up

Messenger: I was told to go to Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center to pray the rosary with my children. There were people in the front of the church, so we decided to pray the rosary in the back before the Sorrowful Mother statue. I had the following vision at the end of the rosary.

The statue of the Sorrowful Mother was lit up as if she had fire around her. The light was very bright. Her whole gown was all-white, but the statue's gown is blue and pink. She was all aglow. It looked like the glow that comes off of a fire. Her face kept changing but remained totally sorrowful - the sorrow of an older woman. She was in such pain and sorrow! (It was hard to explain how she looked - extremely pained!) Her face looked as though she was in such pain that she could hardly bear it.

The vision remained like this for about ten minutes, having begun during the last Hail Mary of the Sorrowful Mysteries of the rosary. She was holding something - it was all bright white - the brightest light ever!


July 6, 1994 6:30 p.m.

She Was Aglow, All In White

Messenger: Vision (in front of the Sorrowful Mother statue): I was told by Mary to go alone at 6:30 p.m. to Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center. I prayed the Sorrowful Mysteries again, saying a sentence at each Hail Mary. She was aglow, all in white. She remained like this for at least 10 minutes

Blue Book Meeting

Fr. Carter led the rosary -- lots of people were present.


Glorious Mysteries


The Resurrection

1.  R.  After being in the tomb for three days, Jesus rose triumphant on the third day.

2.  R.  Death has no power over Jesus!

3.  R.  Jesus came that He would bring us new life.

4.  R.  St. Ignatius says Jesus appeared to His beloved Mother.

5.  R.  Imagine Mary's joy to see her Beloved Son after she had wept outside the tomb just three days before.

6.  "But our homeland is in heaven and it is from there that we are expecting a Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transfigure the wretched body of ours into the mould of his glorious body, through the working of the power which he has, even to bring all things under his mastery." Philippians 3:20-21

7.  R.  Mary Magdalene and some of the others went to the tomb and the stone had been rolled back.

8.  R.  Jesus later appeared to Mary Magdalene and told her not to touch Him because Jesus had not gone to His Father yet.

9.  R.  Jesus traveled with two disciples on the way to Emmaus and accounted for them all the scriptures that pertained to Him from the time of Moses and the early prophets

10. R.  They did not recognize Jesus until they got to Emmaus and He broke bread and gave it to them.

Song between decades:  Come Holy Spirit




The Ascension

1.  R.  Jesus gave to the apostles the power to baptize. It is in baptism that we are made children of God and heirs of Heaven.

2.  R.  Jesus gave to them the power to forgive sins. Jesus took them out to the town of Bethany and gave them His final blessing

3.  R.  Then, He raised His arms and ascended into Heaven.

4.  R.  These are truly the Glorious Mysteries: that Jesus rose from the dead and ascended into Heaven!

5.  R.  The apostles were awestruck as they were in the field. Imagine how they felt to see their Beloved Jesus ascend into Heaven.

6.  R.  They were filled with fear because Jesus had left.

7.  R.  Out of greatest love for us, He remains with us in the Eucharist in His Divinity and humanity, no less present than the day He was carried in Mary's womb, no less present than the day He hung on the cross.

8.  R.  Jesus gave His life on the cross. Now He gives us Himself in the Eucharist.

9. Song:  I am the Bread of Life

10.  Song:  Glory, Glory, Glory Lord

Song between decades:  Come Holy Spirit




        The Descent of the Holy Spirit

1.   John baptised with water but, not many days from now, you are going to be baptised with the Holy Spirit.’  Acts 1: 5

2.  R.  And the apostles were locked in the upper room with Mary and a gigantic-like wind came upon them and above them appeared parted tongues of fire.

3.  R.  And they were filled with the Holy Spirit and transformed from fear to fearlessness.

4.  R.  And they went out to preach the gospel and all understood what they had said.

5.  R.  Holy Spirit, come to us and fill us with the fire of Your Love so that we may have the courage to do what we need to do to spread the gospel in the world this day.

6.  R.  Fill us with Your Fire and the love of God so that we can be more and more transformed into the image of Jesus.

7.  R.  Mary unite us more and more to your Immaculate Heart so we can be closer and closer to Jesus and more transformed by the Holy Spirit into the image of Jesus, your Son.

8.  R.  Spirit be alive in our hearts.

9.  R.  Spirit be alive in us! Move us so that we are not dry and inactive but alive with the love and the fire of God within our hearts.

10.  Sing:  Come Holy Ghost

Song between decades:  Come Holy Spirit ... 



The Assumption of Mary Into Heaven

1.  R.  Mary remained on the earth many years after Jesus' death and then she was taken body and soul into Heaven

2.  R.  Imagine the joy in her heart to be reunited with Her Precious Son.

3.  R.  Mary has not left us. She is our Mother forever by our side, forever present with us. At every moment she is there.

4.  R.  Mary is the singular vessel.

5.  Sing:  Eye has not Seen

6.  R.  It is through Mary's Immaculate Heart that we join in deepest intimacy with Jesus' Most Sacred Heart.

7.  R.  The more we unite with these two Hearts of Love, the more that we will unite with the Trinity.

8.  R.  We were made for this union with God, this oneness. It is through Mary's Immaculate Heart that we can become more one in Christ.

9.  Song:  Immaculate Mary

10.  John 3:16

For this is how God loved the world: 
he gave his only Son, 
so that everyone who believes in him 
    may not perish 
but may have eternal life.


Song between decades:  Come Holy Spirit ...



The Coronation of Mary as Queen of Heaven and Earth

1.  Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman, robed with the sun, standing on the moon, and on her head a crown of twelve stars.  Revelation 12: 1

2.  R.  Mary, who knows her Son so well; Mary, who carried Him as a child, who was with Him all through His Passion and Resurrection and Ascension into Heaven, now reigns with Him forever in Heaven.

3.  R.  We cannot imagine even a little bit the immensity of God's love for us.

4.  R.  We cannot imagine even a small amount how Heaven is and the glories of being united to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit in such union for ever and ever and ever.

5.  R.  Each Holy Communion is like a little Heaven. But Heaven is so much more than our deepest encounters of union with God here on earth.

6.  R.  Our souls are restless until they rest in God!

7.  Song:  Eye has not Seen

8.  R. And we will be forever united in such celestial bliss with the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit, Mary, the angels and the saints for ever and ever and ever if we love and serve the Lord as He desires.

9.  Song:  May the angels lead you into Paradise. May the martyrs greet you on your way. May you see the face of the Lord this day. Alleluia, Alleluia!

10. Song:  Hail Holy Queen

Song after last decade:  Come Holy Spirit ...


This rosary was prayed at the Blue Book Meeting. Fr. Carter led the rosary.

Many were there in the Holy Spirit Chapel before the tabernacle.
