Messenger:         We finished the excerpts gathered for 
                        the Mass Book II.

                            A few days ago we put on some
                        excerpts from Father Carter's Newsletters
                        on Mary. 

                            In reading these entries and reflecting on
                        the writings of Mary that follows one can
                        see the deep connection with the Hearts of
                        Jesus and Mary.

                            Father Carter was a Jesuit priest with
                        a doctors in theology. Jesus directed him
                        to write the Priestly Newsletter a certain way.

                            I am a messenger chosen by God to deliver
                        many messages from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.
                        The writings together are to help lead the souls into
                        this deeper oneness in the Hearts of Jesus and
                        Mary, the New Adam and the New Eve.

                            The writings given to Father Carter and
                        the messages and writings given to me are to
                        help lead souls into deeper insights into 
                        the hidden mysteries.

                            It is depth. What is the mission of
                        Shepherds of Christ? To lead the soul
                        into deeper oneness with God, with
                        Mary, with all the angels and saints
                        and to be more united with the souls
                        on earth and the souls in purgatory.           

                            The word I wish to use here is depth.
                        The word I wish to use is oneness.
                        Being so united as a body. We want to 
                        be so united to God.

                        I hope from these excerpts you will have
                            a deeper understanding of the hidden
                            mysteries.

                        The New Adam, the New Eve.

                        Our centers are gardens to help bring forth
                            fruit for the kingdom.

                        On the Feast of the Immaculate Heart of
                            Mary, June 1998, I received the
                            following writing.

                        Today I see our writings as jointly connected
                            Two witnesses heralding the word about
                                the great gifts from our beloved God.

                            I am a mother, a wife, a math teacher.

                        Our holy Church is mother.

                        Our holy Church is to bring forth fruit.

                        Our holy Church is to nurture and help the children.

                        In the mystical revelations I have received, and the
                            visions and gifts, they become so much fuller
                            when coupled with the gifts given to
                            Father Carter as theologian priest, and teacher,
                            mystic, a chosen soul by God to help
                            spiritually direct the priests through
                            the Priestly Newsletter. Our Lord has
                            directed His priests through the writings
                            of Father Carter to take them into this
                            great era of peace promised by Our Lady
                            of Fatima. In this great era of peace
                            there will be such intimacy with
                            Our Divine God. There is to be a deeper maturity
                            in our relationship with God, the Church and
                            the world.

                            Our Lord has given this, Shepherds of Christ,
                                His Movement to help bring this about.

The Birth of the Full Ministries
of the Shepherds of Christ

    "I wish to share with you part of a message which Jesus gave us on October 13, 1994. The message tells us about the expansion of the Shepherds of Christ movement:

    'My beloved priest-companion, today I come to you with another mission. I am asking you to establish Shepherds of Christ Ministries. At My request you have already begun the priestly newsletter, "Shepherds of Christ", and the prayer chapters, Shepherds of Christ Associates...

    'I am giving you this message on this day, the 77th Anniversary of the Great Apparition at Fatima, because of the close connection between the Shepherds of Christ movement and the Fatima message. The Fatima message is centered in devotion to My Heart and My Mother's Heart, especially in consecration to Our Hearts. Shepherds of Christ Ministries is also centered in devotion to Our Hearts. I will use Shepherds of Christ Ministries as a great instrument in helping to bring about the triumph of the Immaculate Heart and the reign of My Sacred Heart. When this occurs, My Church and the world will be experiencing the great era of peace promised by My Mother at Fatima.

    'Today, then, October 13, 1994, the 77th Anniversary of the Great Apparition at Fatima, marks the birth of Shepherds of Christ Ministries. I pour forth the great love of My Sacred Heart to all. I am Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the flock.'

    "Jesus has told us that Shepherds of Christ Ministries includes: the priestly newsletter, Shepherds of Christ, Shepherds of Christ Associates prayer chapters, various publications, including books, whatever else Our Lord directs us to undertake.

    "As members of Shepherds of Christ Associates, you are an extremely important part of Shepherds of Christ Ministries. You have given great joy to the Heart of Jesus by responding to His invitation to become members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. As He draws you closer to His Heart and to His Mother's Heart as Associates members, He will fill you with an ever-increasing experience of His love, peace, and joy."

June 20, 1998 Message


 

Genesis 1: 27 - 31

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

God blessed them, saying to them, ‘Be fruitful, multiply, fill the earth and subdue it. Be masters of the fish of the sea, the birds of heaven and all the living creatures that move on earth.’ God also said, ‘Look, to you I give all the seed–bearing plants everywhere on the surface of the earth, and all the trees with seed–bearing fruit; this will be your food. And to all the wild animals, all the birds of heaven and all the living creatures that creep along the ground, I give all the foliage of the plants as their food.’ And so it was. God saw all he had made, and indeed it was very good. Evening came and morning came: the sixth day.

 


 

Genesis 2: 23

And the man said:

This one at last is bone of my bones
and flesh of my flesh!
She is to be called Woman,
because she was taken from Man.

 


 

June 19, 2000 message continues

Jesus speaks: I have given you this New Adam, this New Eve. I have given you the new covenant between God and man.

    On this feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary I give you this parable:

    I took the woman from the side of the man to unite in holy wedlock to bring forth the children of the earth.

    I gave you Myself, the Sacrifice, the New Adam, taken from the womb of the Immaculate Mother.

    From My side the Church was born.

    I have given you the priest from My side. I have given him the vision of Myself always with him.

    My Heart is the life of the Church, what comes forth from My Heart is Blood and water administered through the hands of consecrated priests.

    I have given My beloved priest a deep union with Myself.

    The Church was born from My pierced side.

    My Mother stood beneath My cross in great anguish and pain knowing the fate of many.

 


 

Luke 2: 34

‘Look, he is destined for the fall and for the rise of many in Israel, destined to be a sign that is opposed— and a sword will pierce your soul too—so that the secret thoughts of many may be laid bare.’

 


 

Luke 2: 7

and she gave birth to a son, her first–born. She wrapped him in swaddling clothes and laid him in a manger because there was no room for them in the living–space.

 


 

June 19, 2000 message continues

Messenger: She stood beneath the cross and her Son hung on that tree of life. He would soon be planted in a tomb in a garden and rise victorious, the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep.

 


 

1 Corinthians 15: 20 - 28

    In fact, however, Christ has been raised from the dead, as the first–fruits of all who have fallen asleep. As it was by one man that death came, so through one man has come the resurrection of the dead. Just as all die in Adam, so in Christ all will be brought to life; but all of them in their proper order: Christ the first–fruits, and next, at his coming, those who belong to him. After that will come the end, when he will hand over the kingdom to God the Father, having abolished every principality, every ruling force and power. For he is to be king until he has made his enemies his footstool,and the last of the enemies to be done away with is death, for he has put all things under his feet. But when it is said everything is subjected, this obviously cannot include the One who subjected everything to him. When everything has been subjected to him, then the Son himself will be subjected to the One who has subjected everything to him, so that God may be all in all.

 


 

June 19, 2000 message continues

Jesus speaks: It would be wise for you to study the messages I gave to you on the day before My Sacred Heart Feast and the Day of the Feast. I speak from My Sacred Heart to you.

Messenger: NOTE: He refers to June 18, 1998, June 19, 1998 and this message for us to study.

Jesus speaks: The devil knows the end is near and you hold the documents to help to cleanse the dirty hearts.

    I ask you to study the messages of the day preceeding the Sacred Feast, the Feast of My Sacred Heart and the writing of today.

    I wish you to understand the immense war you are experiencing. Your prayers are held mightily and that of your family, Shepherds of Christ, in the hands of the heavenly court.

    They are the prayers of the holy ones.

    Your earth has fallen into a deep sleep, I took the woman Eve from the side of the man under a deep sleep.

    The Woman, Clothed as the Sun, stands triumphant on the snake. She has dominion over him (the devil).

    Eve did not listen, she allowed the evil one to be her master. I told them to have dominion over the earth. They ate the fruit, giving in to the devil when I commanded them to not eat of the fruit.

    The Church was born from the side of the Savior. The New Eve stands beneath the cross. The Pure, the Immaculate One. The children to be brought forth in pain, the fallen children of Eve.

    I give you the permanent sign of the Woman in Florida and your earth is asleep.

    The garden has been planted. The flowing water is to come forth from the Rock.

    The messages come from the Sacred Heart of Jesus to the children of this earth in need of medicine.

    My priest acts in My name to help lead the troubled Church home to My Sacred Heart from which the water will flow copiously on the parched barren earth.

    I gave a pair in the garden and the devil divided them.

    I came and died. I hung on that tree to give this world life, and My Mother stood beneath the cross to the bitter end, and held My Body before they carried it to the tomb.

    You cannot operate independent of one another. You carry the seeds to help the word come alive in the sleeping sick hearts. I am the vine grower. You must surrender to Me and live deeply the messages I give you.

    I repeat one more time - the Mass and how you participate in it is the central focus of your lives!

    These writings are to be centered on the Mass, that the writings will be written when the dawn appears.

    The love of God will blossom in the hearts from these writings. You must hold onto each other and be one for the sake of the world which has mounted the sinking ship to hell.

    The Lady Clothed as the Sun is sent to pull them from the dark sea of doom.

    She comes, the Ark ready to be boarded, immaculately conceived by the hand of God to bring forth the new race.

    Our Lady of Fatima stands beneath the cross in Lucia's vision, over the altar of sacrifice, beneath the hand of God. You are to lead the world home into the Heart of Jesus through the Immaculate Heart of the Woman.

THROUGH HIM, WITH HIM and IN HIM,

 


 

 


 

Revelation 11: 3 - 19

    But I shall send my two witnesses to prophesy for twelve hundred and sixty days, wearing sackcloth. These are the two olive trees and the two lamps in attendance on the Lord of the world. Fire comes from their mouths and consumes their enemies if anyone tries to harm them; and anyone who tries to harm them will certainly be killed in this way.They have the power to lock up the sky so that it does not rain as long as they are prophesying; they have the power to turn water into blood and strike the whole world with any plague as often as they like. When they have completed their witnessing, the beast that comes out of the Abyss is going to make war on them and overcome them and kill them. Their corpses lie in the main street of the great city known by the symbolic names Sodom and Egypt, in which their Lord was crucified.People of every race, tribe, language and nation stare at their corpses, for three–and–a–half days, not letting them be buried, and the people of the world are glad about it and celebrate the event by giving presents to each other, because these two prophets have been a plague to the people of the world.’

    After the three–and–a–half days, God breathed life into them and they stood up on their feet, and everybody who saw it happen was terrified; then I heard a loud voice from heaven say to them, ‘Come up here,’ and while their enemies were watching, they went up to heaven in a cloud. Immediately, there was a violent earthquake, and a tenth of the city collapsed; seven thousand persons were killed in the earthquake, and the survivors, overcome with fear, could only praise the God of heaven. That was the second of the disasters; the third is to come quickly after it.

The seventh trumpet

    Then the seventh angel blew his trumpet, and voices could be heard shouting in heaven, calling, ‘The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and his Christ, and he will reign for ever and ever.’ The twenty–four elders, enthroned in the presence of God, prostrated themselves and touched the ground with their foreheads worshipping God with these words, ‘We give thanks to you, Almighty Lord God, He who is, He who was, for assuming your great power and beginning your reign. The nations were in uproar and now the time has come for your retribution, and for the dead to be judged, and for your servants the prophets, for the saints and for those who fear your name, small and great alike, to be rewarded. The time has come to destroy those who are destroying the earth.’ Then the sanctuary of God in heaven opened, and the ark of the covenant could be seen inside it. Then came flashes of lightning, peals of thunder and an earthquake and violent hail.

 


 

June 19, 2000 message continues

Messenger: If we get the building on July 5, 1998, it will be the 4th anniversary of when she first appeared as Our Lady of Light and then for about 450 days, almost every day - July 5, 1994 - Sept. 5, 1995.

 


 

Revelation 12: 1 - 2

    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. She was pregnant, and in labour, crying aloud in the pangs of childbirth.

 


 

 


 

John 19: 25 - 27

Jesus and his mother

    Near the cross of Jesus stood his mother and his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary of Magdala. Seeing his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing near her, Jesus said to his mother, ‘Woman, this is your son.’ Then to the disciple he said, ‘This is your mother.’ And from that hour the disciple took her into his home.

 


 

June 19, 2000 message continues

Messenger: The Church is the Bride of Christ.

    The Church is the Mother of the children.

    We are a family in the Church.

    The Church is to bring forth children for the kingdom.

    Jesus has given me revelations to give. I am a bride and a mother. My writings reflect the role I have played as a mother. My heart is that of a woman and mother. I love Jesus so much.

    The Church is the Bride of Christ. The Church is Mother bringing forth children for God's Kingdom.

    From the pierced side of Christ the Church was born.

    Eve, the woman was formed from the side of Adam.

    The Church is formed from the pierced side of the New Adam.

    She is His Bride.

    Our Founder that writes the newsletter for about 70,000 priests has been a priest for many years, writing 17 books on the spiritual life. Jesus picked him, he has a doctorate in theology. He is a very holy priest, so devoted to the Sacred Heart and Immaculate Heart.

In Uniting to Our Pure Hearts,
You Offer a Most Pure Sacrifice

Mary speaks: My dear little children,

    I wish to speak to you as your loving Mother. You die to self and your ways that are not of God and you live more and more in Our Hearts. At the Consecration of the Mass you ask to be one in the Holy Sacrifice offered for the salvation of souls.

    You my children offer a most holy sacrifice when you give yourself to my pure and Immaculate Heart. I take you to the depth of the Heart of my Son. The connection to pureness is in Our Hearts.

    Do you wish to offer a tainted sacrifice or one that is most pure? The more you unite to my sinless, Immaculate Heart, the more pure are your actions. I am the Virgin Mary, Mother most pure. I come to lead my children home to the Heart of my Son.

    In uniting to our pure Hearts you offer a most pure sacrifice. You ask to die to your selfish, sinful ways in the sacrifice and you unite in deep union to the resurrected Christ. You come in my pure heart to offer the sacrifice.

    I stand the Lady victorious under the cross as you unite in great oneness in my Heart and the Heart of my Son, Jesus.

    I stood beneath the cross, sorrowful and joyous, sad for my little children that would lose their souls, joyous for those to be saved.

    You pray fervently at every Mass. You unite in the heart of the New Eve and the Heart of the New Adam. Grace is poured forth on the earth and the garden is watered with His life. He sweat the life saving blood in the garden of Gethsemane. Now He gives you this life of grace poured out on the thirsty earth in the Mass.

    A garden in Eden, a tree and a serpent, the parents that sinned and did their own will.

    A garden I give to you now in Florida, my Son hangs from the cross, the New Adam. I stand beneath the cross of my Son, Jesus, the handmaid of the Lord, the New Eve. All authority is under His feet. Eve wanted to make herself like a god. I am the New Eve. All authority is under the King. He is the God. I ask you this question, my children, have you made yourselves gods? Or have you given your heart to my Son that He is your God?

 

 

 

 

    This is my garden to bring forth great fruit for the kingdom. A tree and a serpent; a tree and a dying Man, a God-made-Man, come to save a sinful race; an altar, a sacrifice, the Sacrifice of Calvary sacramentally made present, and to you my children, the life-saving grace will flow more copiously on the earth when priests hearts are consecrated to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary as they celebrate the Mass. I ask you to pray for my priest-sons here, to carry out the prayer chapters to pray for priests and the renewal of the Church and the world. There will be a new earth in which men will love their God with their whole heart, their whole soul and their whole being. Will you help lead the priests to consecration? Will you help me with this mission I began at Fatima, do you want grace poured out on the earth that men will see with the light of seven suns? 

sculpted by Felix Avalos

I give you a garden here to bring forth great fruit. I am the Lady Clothed with the Sun. Your world is on a fine line and my Son's hand is raised. Will you help me bring about the completion of what I began at Fatima to lead the world into one fold? My Heart will triumph and the Sacred Heart of Jesus will reign. The strength is needed here my children. Will you pray from my garden in Florida for your priests and the Church and the world? Help me to spread my Son's priestly newsletter in all languages to the priests that they will consecrate their hearts and love my Son Jesus in the Eucharist. Help me to teach my priest-sons and all on the earth about the love of God.

    I give you a garden to bring forth great fruit. I stood beneath the cross and I cried for the little ones that would go forever to the fires of hell, I stood beneath the cross and I cried tears of joy for those that would be saved. Will you help me to reach the world with the consecration? Will you help me spread the Shepherds of Christ Movement to the far corners of the earth that all will pray the prayers my Son Jesus gives to the earth? Read the message of January 22, 1998 from Jesus, "A Message to the Earth." Read the 10 Commandments. I am Mary your Mother. Will you help me? I appear as Our Lady Clothed with the Sun to lead the children to the Light. I love you my little children, pray, pray, pray, from the heart.

Jesus speaks: I am the Good Shepherd, these are My prayers, the prayers I give to help renew the Church and the world, all prayer chapters are asked to include these prayers (found in the Shepherds of Christ Prayer Manual). As My Apostles and Shepherds I ask you to encourage all existing Chapters to try to encourage all existing prayer groups to pray the Shepherds of Christ prayers. Encourage all Churches to pray these prayers. It is most urgent that the people of this earth concur with the Father's wishes to begin Prayer Chapters. This is an urgent request from the Good Shepherd. The flock will become one when they have given their hearts to Jesus and Mary. Encourage all priests to pray the Shepherds of Christ prayers. Your world will be lighted with great light as the people of this earth pray these prayers.

        My promise is this to you My beloved earth: When you give your heart to Me and spread the devotion to My Sacred Heart, I will write your name In My Heart. I promise to give the greatest graces when you pray these prayers for renewal of the Church and the world and take all who pray them deeply into My Heart. The prayers I give will bring about the reign of My Sacred Heart and the triumph of Mary's Immaculate Heart. I am Jesus Christ, this is My message of January 22, 1998, Please circulate this message to your world. I am the Good Shepherd, I know Mine and Mine know Me and they follow Me.

Will You Help Me Spread My Rosary Book and Messages?

Mary speaks: ...I ask you to pray for the souls that will be lost and the Reign of my Son's Sacred Heart and the Triumph of my Immaculate Heart.

    We give to you this mission to help to bring about the mission I gave to you at Fatima.

    Help me lead the souls deeply into the Heart of my Son.

    It is in Our Hearts you will find the greatest riches. It is in Our Hearts you will find peace. It is in Our Hearts you will be made holy. I call you to consecration. Once again I ask you to greet one another with the line, "I give my heart to Jesus and Mary with you in love."

    This will bind you in one heart in Our Hearts in love.

    This will help enormously to bring peace and harmony, oneness to the hearts of many.

    Have this statement printed on cards and shirts, that people will be reminded to greet one another this way in love.

    I come as a Mother to teach my children to love and to obey God.

    I give to you the tender messages of my Son found in these writings, they are letters He gives to you that you will know His love. Will you help the world to know how much my Son loves them?

    I ask again that rosary tapes of the rosaries be made available from this site and all centers that men will know about the great love my Son has for them.

    I ask for these tapes to be made available that I as their Mother may lead them to heartfelt prayer. I want to teach my little children to pray.

    Will you come, daily, if possible and pray with us for renewal of the Church and the world?

    I say again my children, pray, pray, pray.

    God wishes the children of this earth to pray. I appear to teach you my children. I am your Mother. This is the garden to bring forth great fruit on the vine. You are the mothers wailing aloud trying to help me bring forth this fruit for the kingdom. I am Mary your Mother, I appear clothed with the sun wailing aloud as I give birth to a nation that has chosen to ignore their heavenly Mother. I wail aloud in childbirth for this thankless race. You wail with me as you try to lead many home to the Heart of my Son.

    Help me my children, please pray the prayers we give you and begin prayer chapters praying the Prayer Manual prayers in churches before the tabernacle...

Mary Is Blasphemed by Her Children

Mary speaks: This is my message for you my holy child,

    My children have blasphemed my name. That is why it is so pleasing to me when you recite the Litany to the Blessed Virgin Mary.

    My children have dishonored me. Do you know dishonor by your children? You understand my pain under the cross for my children that dishonor me.

    Do your children reject and forget you, my children? So many reject me and forget me and they make my Son bleed. I see Him as I stand beneath the cross. They are hard-hearted and cold.

    I AM THE MOTHER OF GOD.

    My children of the earth disrespect and talk about me without honor. They deny me, some laugh about me.

    They are the real losers, my little rough children. They do not act like children at all, they act as the beast teaches them on their T.V. screens. They lack sensitivity and love. I am Mary your Mother, I wish to be honored as your Mother. To dishonor me displeases your heavenly Father.

Messenger: God wants us to honor our Mother. He tells us in the 4th Commandment.

    Mary said we must make reparation to Their Hearts. I see now why the Virgin Mary likes us to say the Litany to her and why our Lord said it is so powerful. It is so honoring to Our Lady.

    To say the Litany to the Sacred Heart pleases the Sacred Heart so much. It gives Him great honor.

    I can see why the Good Shepherd includes them in the prayers of the Good Shepherd for they are so honoring to Them.

    I love you Jesus, help me to do Thy holy will.

        from the Mass Book I ~

 

 


 


 

~ December 5, 1995 ~

MARY OUR MOTHER

    Mary is the Mother of God. God the Father sent His Only Begotten Son.

    Mary is conceived immaculate. To not recognize this is to not realize the magnificence of God. God could not come in sin. God, Who is all good, could not be conceived in the body of a person tainted with original sin.

    " 'Father,' he said, 'if you are willing, take this cup away from me. Nevertheless, let your will be done, not mine.'" (Lk. 22:42)

    I see that God is all-powerful. I am a little piece of the puzzle. I am not the whole puzzle. My love of Jesus and the Mass is why I write this book.

    Mary, conceived without sin, is the New Eve. Mary was made our Mother under the cross. Mary is the Mother of our spiritual life. I have felt the pain of Mary under the cross, the pain for her little, lost children.

    Mary is the Mother of God. Christ took on flesh. Mary is the spouse of the Holy Spirit. She is Mary Immaculate. Jesus took on Mary's flesh and blood. To not love Mary is to not recognize His great love for us. We miss our own dignity and honor. Divinity and humanity meet in Mary.

    There are five blasphemies against Mary. She has asked us to make the first Saturday devotion. Sr. Lucia ask Our Lord why there were five first Saturdays.

    He revealed to her:

My daughter, the reason is simple. There are five types of offenses and blasphemies committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary:

1. Blasphemies against the Immaculate Conception.
2. Blasphemies against Her Perpetual Virginity.
3. Blasphemies against Her Divine Maternity, in refusing
     at the same time to recognize Her as the Mother of men.
4. The blasphemies of those who publicly seek to sow in 
      the hearts of children indifference or scorn, or even 
      hatred of this Immaculate Mother.
5. The offenses of those who outrage Her directly in Her holy images.46

    We must make the first Saturday devotion to make reparation to her, for the indifferences against her Immaculate Heart.

    I can see the devil pushing man away from Mary! The devil knows that Mary is a link between heaven and earth. There is a great link between God and man in Mary.

    We realize more the mystery of God's love for us when we see how God loved Mary.

    Act of Incarnation: God unites to man. My greatest pain felt, lately, is under the cross.

    Mary knows the great gift given from God to His creatures. She is our spiritual Mother. She experiences the pain of her lost children. She sees before her, her Son covered with blood.

    Mary says it is because of pride they do not accept her. It is because of pride, some think Mary cannot be any higher than them. They do not recognize election.

    In having this pride, many miss the great messages given from God. In having pride, we miss a major link between heaven and earth in Mary. It is the Father's will that Mary is our spiritual Mother.

    We reach a deeper level in the spiritual life only in the heart of Mary. It is His will. She was chosen, sinless, the spouse of the Holy Spirit, and the Mother of God.

    We can only go to the deepest chambers of the Heart of Christ through the pure and sinless heart of Mary. We are sinners. She is immaculate.

    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:

    "Tell them to ask grace from her, and that the Heart of Jesus wishes to be venerated together with the Immaculate Heart of Mary…"47

    This last message offers us an excellent opportunity to summarize the Fatima message. It tells us "that the Heart of Jesus wishes to be venerated together with the Immaculate Heart of Mary."48

    Deep spiritual maturity cannot be achieved without going through the heart of Mary. Jesus came into the world in Mary's womb.

    This is the Father's will: for His Son to come into this world, for His Son to be formed in her womb. God wants us to be formed more and more into the image and likeness of Jesus in the spiritual womb of Mary. Jesus wants us to grow in Mary's heart through the Holy Spirit to deepest maturity.

    Many, in their willfulness and pride, deny the Mother of God, her Immaculate Conception, and the virgin birth. It is pride, for they do not want to recognize how much God loves Mary. They are proud and/or ignorant and will not recognize another creature higher than they are.

    This is how it is: the Child Jesus, God-made-Man, was conceived in the womb of Mary. He was formed in her womb. To reach higher levels of spiritual maturity, we must dwell in the heart of Mary. We are formed there through the power of the Holy Spirit to be more like Jesus. We achieve depth in our relationship with God through Mary.

    "And Mary said: 'My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord" (Lk. 1:46) All of us children unite in the heart of Mary. I see such oneness between all of us as we join in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. We unite in the heart of Mary. She places us in the Heart of Jesus. There we are united with all Mary's children. He is the Light of the World. His Heart burns - a yellow glow with hot embers. Many are the children of the light. Mary is our Mother. She is calling us to be children of the light. She is Our Lady of Light.

    It starts with you and me and with all His holy priests. As we consecrate our hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, we are one in Their Hearts. I give Jesus and Mary my heart, you give them your heart, we are one in Their Hearts. As the Shepherds of Christ Movement spreads throughout the world, we become one with each other as we give our hearts to Jesus and Mary. There will be one flock and one Shepherd. Father Carter is reaching the priests with the consecration in the priestly newsletter. He is reaching the sisters and religious with the consecration in the religious newsletter. He is reaching the lay people with the Shepherds of Christ Associates prayer chapters for adults and youth centered in consecration of our hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

Notes:
    In February of 1996, we began a new movement, Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus. In it people volunteer two hours a week in front of the Blessed Sacrament and pray for the renewal of the Church and the world. They consecrate their hearts bi-weekly in front of the tabernacle. We are all joined together to help bring the light to others. This is the center, Jesus in the Eucharist. It is for the renewal of the Church and the world.

    Mary is now Our Lady of Sorrows. Her heart was pierced with the willfulness of her children. Her heart is in great sorrow at the loss of her children. She calls us to spread the light to this world, to light up the darkness, to come and be fed by the Chief Shepherd.

    The devil has waged a war against the children of the light. Children of the light are richly fed with God's love, given abundantly by Jesus in the Eucharist.

    This is the plan of Fatima to reach the world. Hearts must be consecrated to the two Hearts. Fr. Carter is reaching the world in the newsletter for priests, religious, and the associates. All are consecrating their hearts. The children must be reached through the Junior Shepherds of Christ Movement. Children need to consecrate their hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. The first Saturday devotion must be observed and spread from the Center.

    The Fatima messages say, that the peace or war in our country depends on our consecrating our hearts to Mary. Children must be reached with the consecration. Satan is so strong.

    The Father's plan will unfold. We must live according to the will of God with love. Every one of us is given such talents. God carries out the work of redemption through our humanity. We must pray to the Holy Spirit to sanctify us and make us holy.

    This is what I suffered under the cross: the sufferings for the little, lost children. Mary wants us to make reparation to her heart. Mary told Jacinta, "Tell them to ask grace from her, and that the Heart of Jesus wishes to be venerated together with the Immaculate Heart of Mary."49 By recognizing her Immaculate Conception, we are recognizing the great dignity and honor He has given to Mary, a human person.

    We go to the spiritual womb, the heart of Mary, because He wills it so. The depth of our union with Him can only come about through a deeper union with her. He wills it so.

    The Father chose Mary as the Mother of God. The Father chose her, from all woman, to be Jesus' Mother. She is espoused to the Holy Spirit. Such dignity that God unites to her to bring forth a Son! If God comes to us in Mary's womb, we can go to God in Mary's heart.

    In realizing the immense love God has for Mary, we can realize more His immense love for us in the Eucharist, to unite with us in such union. She carried Jesus in her womb. He is no less present in us when we receive Him in Communion.

    Her soul magnifies the Lord. We see how our soul is raised to such heights through His grace. We, human persons, are raised to such heights in His grace. We are created to know, love, and serve Him. We can't leave out service. For, "…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." (Lk. 1:48-49)

    Father Carter talked about spiritual childhood: the more we become like a little child, the more the Father gives Himself to us.

FORMED IN THE WOMB OF MARY

    In order to grow more deeply in my love of Christ, I must unite to the heart of Mary. As Christ was formed in the womb of Mary, we are constantly being formed in her heart through the action of the Holy Spirit, she is a Spiritual Mother. I am constantly being formed in her heart through the action of the Holy Spirit.

    Divinity and humanity meet in the womb of Mary. She carried the Christ Child under her heart. The union of the two Hearts began when the Holy Spirit came upon her. She was filled with grace. To house the God-made-Man, she must be full of grace.

    Do you ponder on our own graced soul? Do we think of our graced soul after reception of the Eucharist?

THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION

Written at Mass:

    As Father read the Gospel, I was so connected with each word and filled with such emotion. I was so close to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, so deep in His love.

    Every thought of Mary radiated in my body. To hear her name made me want to cry. I love her life. I love Jesus' life. I love the rosary. The rosary is alive in me.

MEN HAVE THEIR ROLE; WOMEN HAVE THEIRS

Written between 12:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m.
at Holy Cross-Immaculata Catholic Church:

    I knew I was supposed to be here. I had such sufferings during the Stations, wrapped in pain. I am so lost in the depth of the emotions. My heart is torn in the Stations.

    I love His presence, her presence - I am so wrapped in this presence, I just want to be alone with Them. I just want to be with them in ecstasy.

    Jesus says, "…Who is my mother? Who are my brothers?" (Mt. 12:48) There is a oneness in the roles of loving. Mary is His Mother, yet she is the New Eve, and He is the New Adam. He says, "…Who is my mother? Who are my brothers?" (Mt. 12:48) There is such oneness between all in the Body of Christ. There is such oneness in our hearts when we consecrate our hearts to Them. We are all children of the Father. He wants us to love each other and live according to His will.

    In heaven, we will be in harmony, enjoying His love, His goodness, His mysteries. I understand this immense love between all, living in harmony in the Father's will!

    We see the Lord, and we adore and worship Him and live in His love. His love is enough for us.

    The family is a little church. The father is the head. The wife must obey the husband. She receives the seed. There are little children.

    Mary is close to Jesus in one Heart. Wives should be close to their husbands in one heart. Men and women have different roles. When we disregard the virgin birth of Jesus, we disregard the virgin birth of the Church. Mary is always bringing forth her children.

    Mary is not respected as she should be. There are blasphemies against Mary, against her as Mother of God, against her Immaculate Conception, against the virgin birth. We must go through the pure one, Mary, to go to the deepest chamber of the Heart of Christ.

    Concerning the marital act, the focus many times is not on love between husband and wife and the procreation of children, the focus of this most beautiful act many times in today's world is on giving pleasure. The Church does not agree with artificial contraception. One purpose of the sexual act is procreation of children. When people control the sexual act by artificial birth control, they eliminate the purpose of this act for the procreation of children. The act must be performed according to the Father's will. The sexual act is a beautiful loving act created by God. It is not a dirty act, an act for senseless pleasure. It is a serious act created by God to express love between husband and wife and to bring about the procreation of children. It is God's act to bring a life into the world. He gives the life in this act, created by Him!

    The devil has made sin out of so many things. The sexual act is a beautiful act given by God. It should be used according to the Father's plan and treasured.

    Love, oh, love, oh love - that is God Himself, but how little is understood of real love! Love and forgiveness go hand-in-hand.

    Jesus showed us how He always, always forgave. He forgave Mary Magdalene - His way is love!

    To be like Jesus we must strive to eliminate division with others in our hearts. Our hearts must be filled with love. He is Love! To be as He is, is to love. Wives should be subject to their husbands; husbands should love their wives. Their roles are not the same. He gives the seed, she receives the seed and loves it.

    Priests are representing Christ to us. He has been anointed and chosen by God and given power, through God, to change bread and wine into the Body and Blood of Jesus. Priests should be shown the highest love, respect, and honor, for they are the chosen sons of God.

    The priest must realize the great honor and dignity that is given to him. The priest has the great gift to administer the Sacraments.

    Also, the priest should pray over people. The priest should pray over people for their healing. It is so powerful when a priest prays over people.

    Women and men have different roles. Christ gave Mary to us as our Mother. Mary's role was not to be an anointed priest. Christ is the Head of the Church. Mary is the Mother of the Church. Her role is to bring forth her children so they are more and more like Jesus. Mary stands beneath the cross. Jesus is above her. He is the New Adam, she is the New Eve. "…Who is my mother? Who are my brothers?…Anyone who does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother." (Mt. 12:48-50) We are one in Him. He raises us to such heights. We share in His divine life.

    It is through His Resurrection and Ascension, we share in His life.

    We are creatures - He is divine. He allows us to share in His divine life.

    He is raised on the cross. He gave Himself on the cross. He gives Himself to us now. We unite with God in the Holy Eucharist (the Mass). At the Offertory, we see the priest mix one drop of water with the wine. This symbolizes our humanity sharing in His Divinity.

    He is raised high on the cross above the creatures. He is resurrected from the dead!

    In Him, we are raised to new life. He ascends into heaven and opens the gates for us. He is the Way. He is the Truth. He is the Life. It is in Him, we are raised up, as we become partakers in His life.

    Life flows from the Father, in the Holy Spirit, through the pierced Heart of Jesus, through the heart of Mary into us, and we act as channels of His life in this world. God is the Source of life. To leave out God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit is to leave out the Source of life.

    Life is not life if it is not rooted in Him.

    The Church is the way this life is channeled to us. The family is a little church. Our roles are as the Father wills - men and women are not the same!

    They are as they were created by Him. It is in living according to His will that we will have peace and joy.

    We are called to unite with Christ - only in Him will there be peace and joy in our lives.

    To make yourself supreme is to try to reign on the earth. You are without power. Only through Him will you operate in love, peace, and joy. God the Father loves us so much. He wants us to love each other as His little children. We must be humble and put aside pride and hatred. His way is love. He is God. He calls us to love in our hearts. He wants us to act like His Son, to love and forgive and be kind.

    Alleluia. He is the King of heaven and earth. The Sacred Heart of Jesus will reign and the Immaculate Heart of Mary will triumph!

IT IS THROUGH MARY THAT WE RECEIVE CHRIST

    "…it will bruise your head and you will strike its heel." (Gn. 3:15)

    The Virgin Mary crushed the head of Satan. Man was in bondage from the sin of Adam. It was through Mary, who conceived of Jesus in her womb, that man was restored to new life.

    Gn. 3:15

"I shall put enmity
between you and the woman,
and between your offspring and hers;
it will bruise your head
and you will strike its heel."

    The seed is planted by the priest in the people, for Christ is administering to the people through the priest.

    The Word of God should be loved. We are the body of Christ. He loves His body so much. Do we love Him? He is the Head of the body.

LET US LOVE THE TWO HEARTS OF JESUS AND MARY
IN THE RECEPTION OF THE HOLY EUCHARIST.

HE GAVE HIMSELF TO US ON THE CROSS. HE GIVES HIMSELF TO US IN THE EUCHARIST.

    How great was the act of love, God gave to this world, when He gave Himself and died on the cross. He gives Himself to us this day in the Holy Eucharist.

    The greatest commandment is that we must love God with our whole heart, our whole soul, and our whole being. This is a commandment. If we are to enter heaven, we must follow the commandments. They are commands given by God for us to follow.

    The greatest act we can do on this earth is an act of loving God. The reason for our existence is to love God. In the sacrament of His greatest love, He gives Himself to us. This is an act of love on His part. We are called to respond by giving ourselves in love to Him.

    This is the purpose of the Holy Eucharist: to unite in such oneness with our Holy, Loving God. Our all consuming passion should be that of loving God. How many go to the Eucharist with the sole purpose of giving great love to God? He wants us to love Him. He wants souls to tell Him how much they truly love Him. This is the most intimate act of love when Jesus gives Himself-Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity to man. If it is such an act of love, how are we receiving Him in Communion? We should beg God, in this most intimate union with Him, to help us to love Him with greatest love.

    Jesus is a Person. He wants our love. The Holy Spirit wants such intimacy with us. Our Father wants us to love Him. In the Eucharist, we unite with God. In this intimate act of uniting with our beloved God, with Divinity, we must pour out our love to God. We must pour out our heart to the most adorable Heart of Jesus. Jesus is so unjustly treated by many of His beloved souls He loves so much. Let us help make reparation to the Almighty God by loving God with our whole heart, our whole soul, and our whole being in the sacrament of His greatest love. This is the Gift of Himself.

    Think of how it is to love someone and give your all for that person, to pour out your heart to him or her and then be treated with coldness and neglect. It hurts our heart so much more when we deeply love someone to be rejected by that person. Jesus loves us with the deepest love. We cannot fully comprehend this love. Let us love Him with the deepest love. Let us love Mary and her Immaculate Heart. Let us love her as the Mother of God. Let us love her as the virgin who bore the Son of God. May we, in the reception of the Eucharist pour out our love to Him, to this adorable Heart. May we pour out our love to His Holy Mother.

    Mary said at Fatima that Jesus wants His Heart venerated next to the heart of His Mother. Let us love these two Hearts as we receive the Sacrament of the Eucharist. Then we are so deeply united with God. We see Their two Hearts surrounded with thorns for the injustices against Their Hearts. Let us help make reparation daily as we receive Him in the Eucharist. This is a special time to help make reparation to Their wounded Hearts.

    Let us remember how He poured His love out to us on the cross and how He pours out His love to us now when He gives us Himself in the Eucharist, the Eucharist which contains His Heart of burning love. His Heart was pierced with a lance. Her heart was invisibly pierced with a sword. As the wounds in Their Hearts are deep, so too is Their love so deep.

    He does not want "surface love". He wants hearts filled with deep burning love.

THEY COME WITH THORNS IN THEIR HEARTS

Written after Communion:

    He emptied Himself. He poured out His Heart, literally blood and water poured out of His Heart. He gives to us this Heart this day in the Holy Eucharist, and He is rejected.

    How hard it is when we pour out our hearts to someone we love, when we give love and are rejected by those we want to love us most. This is the hardest to endure.

    Jesus, Who is love, gives His all, this magnificent Heart of love, gives Himself to us in the Holy Eucharist and look how He is treated by some of those He loves. This was one of the greatest agonies in the Garden. The Eucharist is the sacrament of His greatest love, given to us. He is treated with disrespect, irreverence, indifference, and neglect in this gift in which God literally gives Himself!

    He poured out His Heart to us and He was rejected by many. Today, He pours out Himself in the Holy Eucharist, and He is treated so badly by so many. He asks us, especially in the reception of the Eucharist and in front of the tabernacle, to help make reparation to His adorable Heart for the offenses against Him.

    Mary asks us, in the reception of the Eucharist, to help make reparation to her Immaculate Heart for the blasphemies against her heart. They come with the thorns surrounding Their Hearts. I have experienced such agonies in my heart. I feel as if I have had ridges in my heart because it has happened so many times, over and over again and so deep.

    These agonies, I believe, are from the thorns piercing Their Hearts for the injustices against Their Hearts. With each act of love I give to Mary, loving her as the Mother of God, loving her in her Immaculate Conception, loving her as the virgin who gave birth to the Son of God, loving her images and statues, I see each thorn turned into a flower, a garland surrounding her Immaculate Heart of love.

    I want to love Him with the deepest love, to make reparation for the indifferences, offenses, negligences, disrespect, and irreverence shown to Him in His sacrament of greatest love. I ask Mary, with her pure and Immaculate Heart, to let me love Him more through her heart, that I may love Him with greater love. My greatest desire in life is to give love to my precious and beloved God. I beg Him to help me to unite to Him, to more worthily love Him with the deepest love.

    It is in carrying His cross in our hearts, accepting the thorns in life graciously, outpouring our abundant love to Him, that we help make reparation to His Heart which suffered so much during the bitter Passion.

    Let us help make reparation to these adorable Hearts in the sacrament of His greatest love, the Holy Eucharist. It is there we can more greatly love Them when we are united to Him in deepest love.

MOTHER OF GOD

Written between 12:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m.:

    I was filled with such love for God. At the words, "Mother of God", I cried. I love those words. I love her. I love God so much. I love the Angelus. I love the relationship between Jesus and Mary. I realized how she is truly at our side - she spreads her mantle over us!

MARY'S SORROWS

    She stood under the cross, and she wept. This was the final separation here on earth. His soul now left His body.

    "My Son, my Son," Mary cries out in her heart - for in that moment she knew such anguish and pain for all those that would reject His grace, merited by His life and death on the cross. She knew the souls that would go to hell despite the giving of Himself on the cross.

    I love the mysteries of the rosary, for they are the times I meditate on the lives of Jesus and Mary, Their oneness with each other.

    She lost her Son in Jerusalem when He was twelve. Within her Immaculate Heart, she knew God from carrying Him in her body and in her arms. She held in her heart the prophecy of Simeon. She knew of sufferings to come recorded in her heart. She knew in her heart the flight into Egypt and the love of her beloved husband Joseph. She knew so much about Jesus in her heart. She watched Him comply to the will of His Father.

    How many of her little children this day have separated themselves from God?

    (I smelled gardenias the whole time I was in front of the tabernacle at the Holy Spirit Center.)

MARY'S PRESENCE

    I went to Holy Cross-Immaculata Catholic Church to pray the rosary with my children. (I met a lady from Toronto who took photos for a magazine. I felt moved to ask her about the pictures. She asked me to pray the rosary).

    It was a wonderful rosary. We prayed there before the Lourdes Grotto. Go to Holy Cross-Immaculata Catholic Church I shared intimately with Our Lady and Our Lord there. I love to pray by the Lourdes Grotto and the big Crucifix. Oh how I love God, this is a special place for me to connect to Him and to Mary. Picture Mary young and beautiful in the grotto. See the rocks glistening in a silver light. See her come out of the grotto and the grotto disappear behind her. She is the Immaculate Heart of Mary. She appeared to Bernadette as the Immaculate Conception. I love the grotto there. See her alive with tender, young skin, a very young girl. See her face in the brightest mystical light so young and so beautiful. She is so beautiful because she is so pure and loving. It is through her Immaculate Heart we will unite deeply in the Heart of Christ.

    I love you,

~ The Seven Sorrows of Mary ~

1. The Prophecy of Simeon

Mary, Joseph and the Child Jesus went to the Temple. Simeon, the prophet, inspired by the Holy Spirit, met them and told Joseph and Mary of the great sufferings of Jesus and Mary. He told Mary that a sword would pierce her heart. From that point on, Mary ever remembered the prophecy of Simeon whenever she beheld her child. When she looked at His little body, even as an infant, she knew He would suffer. Every time she clothed Him and watched Him at play, her heart was torn in her chest as she knew what He would suffer. And a sword, too, shall pierce your heart, O Mary!


2. The Flight into Egypt

Joseph was told by the angel to flee. Joseph, Mary, and the Child Jesus had to flee because of what might happen to Jesus. They had to pack for a long stay. The Child Jesus was so small! They left on their journey, hearts full of fear, trying to protect Jesus. They were forced to flee into Egypt.


3. The Loss of the Child Jesus in the Temple

Imagine the sufferings in Mary's heart when she realized the Child Jesus was not with them. Think of how it would be to lose your child and not know where he was or if anything happened to him. With sorrow in their hearts, Mary and Joseph returned to Jerusalem to look for the Child Jesus. And a sword, too, shall pierce your heart, O Mary!


4. Jesus and Mary Meet on the Way to the Cross

Song: See the eyes that look at Mary
See the eyes of Jesus and Mary as they met on Calvary. Mary's heart knew Jesus' Heart so well! From the first moment of conception and throughout His life, Mary was so connected with Jesus and now she peered into His eyes. The crown of thorns adorned His head! Blood ran down His face! A heavy cross on His back! Wounded, His whole body covered with bleeding wounds! And her whole life flashed before her, the life that she had spent with Jesus. This was the beloved child that she had held in her arms when Simeon told Mary that a sword, too, shall pierce her heart!


5. Jesus Dies on the Cross

(Silence.)
Mary stood under Jesus' cross as He was put to death. She held in her heart the prophesy of Simeon. "and a sword will  pierce your soul too--so that the secret thoughts of many may be laid bare." (Lk. 2:35) See Mary in the Temple with Simeon and Joseph holding the baby in her arms. Now Jesus is dead on the cross! He gave His flesh, He gave His blood so that we might be with Him forever in heaven. He held nothing back. He gave His all. Jesus is with us this day. He remains with us in the Eucharist, no less present than the day that he hung on the cross. He longs for us to come and be with Him. He is in our brother. How can we not love our brother when Jesus died for our brother? Her heart was pierced with a sword. His Heart was pierced with a lance. What came forth was blood and water, the sacramental life of the Church. He lives with us this day in the Church. He gives to us His Sacraments, the source of His life! He gives to us the Sacrament of Penance whereby any sin that we commit can be taken away through the priest. He wants us to be so close to Him! He gives us everything to be close to Him. But we see with such limited vision only those things that are right before our face, when the true reality is that which we don't see with our eyes, the reality of the invisible divinity of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, in the consecrated Host! This is reality! This is our life! This is our power! This is God! And a sword, too, shall pierce your heart, O Mary!


6. Jesus Is Taken Down from the Cross and Laid in Mary's Arms

If we ever doubted for one second that we were loved, we could visualize the picture of Mary as she sat beneath the cross with the lifeless, battered, bruised and bloodied body of her Son in her arms, the same child that she held when Simeon prophesied her suffering. Jesus gave His last breath. He gave the last beat of His Heart. He gave His all! This is the way He complied with the will of the Father. He came to show us the way. He died in perfect peace. To His death He was in peace because He knew the Father's love. The Father loves us so much that He gave His only begotten Son for love of us! The Spirit descended upon the Virgin Mary and the Word was made flesh! The love of the Two Hearts! Such immense love beating for us! In all love there is suffering. Her Heart was pierced with a sword. His Heart was pierced with a lance. And a sword, too, shall pierce your heart, O Mary!


7. The Burial of Jesus

The lifeless body of Jesus was locked in the tomb. What cold reality for Mary to realize that His body is now gone! A stone separated her from her Son! He gave His last breath! He gave the last beat of His Heart for love of each one of us! And she comes to us this day with her sweet, beautiful voice and she asks us to go to her Son and love Him! How can we refuse Jesus who spread His arms and gave His life for each and every one of us? How can we not trust Him when He loved us so much that He allowed them to tear His flesh, to crown Him with piercing thorns and, lastly, to hang Him on a cross? He truly gave His life for us! He, truly God, is with us this day, the same as the day He died on the cross, in the tabernacle! And we take it so lightly! Death has no power over Him! Locked in the tomb for three days, He rose triumphant on the third day as He had foretold. He comes to give us life. He gives us the sacrament of Baptism that initiates us into His life, that makes us children of God and heirs of heaven if we remain in the state of grace. He asks two things: love of God and love of one another! He came to show us the way and His way is love. To His death on the cross He loved each one of us! He calls out to each one of us here today to be His soldiers, to march on a world that has forgotten God, that has forgotten what it is like to love! It is a battle to live in this world. But the battle is won with hearts that are filled with His love, empowered by the grace and might that He pours out in the Eucharist. He calls out for us to come to the Eucharist and to the tabernacle and be fed with His very flesh and blood. To feed on Divine Life, the greatest nourishment, the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, the Son of God! This is the love He gives. This is the love He asks us to share

A PLEDGE FROM AN APOSTLE OF THE SACRED HEART

Messenger:

          I am but a little speck on this earth,
                 but with His might He can use me
                 to spread the devotion to His
                 Most Sacred Heart.

          Oh dear and precious Heart of Jesus
                 I give myself as completely as
                 possible to Thee so you will use
                 me to spread the devotion to the
                 ends of the earth for Your most
              precious Heart.

          I am Rita your precious soul.

          Use me to help to spread this burning
               devotion to the souls of this earth.

          I am yours, take me, use me as you
                 will.

           I surrender myself to you.

          It is your might behind me, your power
                 that sends me. I am an Apostle of
                 the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I give
                 myself as completely as possible to
                 Thee.             

          Sacred Heart of Jesus I place my
                 trust in Thee.

          Father hear us please. We beg through
                the  intercession of Father Carter
                and Our Lady of Clearwater that 
                prayer chapters are started all over
                the world and the Priestly Newsletter
                gets there immediately with the
                Prayer Manual.

 


 

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.

    Rosary Books and the
    prayers my Son gives to you.
