Deuteronomy 31: 1-8

Moses went and spoke to all Israel as follows, ‘Today, I am one hundred and twenty years old, and can no longer act as leader. Yahweh has told me, “You shall not cross this Jordan.” Yahweh your God himself will lead you across, he himself will destroy and dispossess these nations confronting you; Joshua too will lead you across, as Yahweh has said. Yahweh will treat them as he has treated Sihon and Og the Amorite kings and their country—he destroyed them. Yahweh will put them at your mercy, and you will deal with them exactly as prescribed by the commandments which I have laid down for you. Be strong, stand firm, have no fear, do not be afraid of them, for Yahweh your God is going with you; he will not fail you or desert you.’ Moses then summoned Joshua and, in the presence of all Israel, said to him, ‘Be strong, stand firm; you will be the one to go with this people into the country which Yahweh has sworn to their ancestors that he would give them; you are to be the one who puts them into possession of it. Yahweh himself will lead you; he will be with you; he will not fail you or desert you. Have no fear, do not be alarmed.’  

 

Matthew 18: 1-5, 10, 12-14

At this time the disciples came to Jesus and said, ‘Who is the greatest in the kingdom of Heaven?’ So he called a little child to him whom he set among them. Then he said, ‘In truth I tell you, unless you change and become like little children you will never enter the kingdom of Heaven. And so, the one who makes himself as little as this little child is the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven.

‘Anyone who welcomes one little child like this in my name welcomes me.

‘See that you never despise any of these little ones, for I tell you that their angels in heaven are continually in the presence of my
Father in heaven.

‘Tell me. Suppose a man has a hundred sheep and one of them strays; will he not leave the ninety–nine on the hillside and go in
search of the stray?

In truth I tell you, if he finds it, it gives him more joy than do the ninety–nine that did not stray at all.

Similarly, it is never the will of your Father in heaven that one of these little ones should be lost.

     

                R. The priest said at Mass:

                Moses farewell to the people, people about to go to the
                    promise land

                Moses tells them to remember all that God did
                    to take them to the promise land

                Joshua would take them to the
                    promise land

                    God would be with them
                    They must be faithful to God.

                They were not faithful and
                    time and time again God dealt
                    with that

                Parents do whatever they can for
                    children today —

                At the time of Jesus — a child had no rights —
                    a child was considered almost worthless —
                    many children didn't reach age of 6 —
                    less to age of 16

                We must remember everything we
                    do is a gift of God —
                    all I have, all I do, I am a
                    child of God —
                    I am God's servant —

                I must remember everyday
                    God is with me
                    God allows me to be challenged
                    At the end of day — see the good I have accomplished.

                We are supposed to love God with our whole,
                    heart, our whole soul and our whole being.

                We thank God for all His gifts
                We are supposed to love God like
                    little children — to give our all


                Like the people in the promise land we
                    are not faithful to God and we see
                    how God treated them —

                People today — many —
                    are not faithful to God

                Read 1st reading again

                Is this not like us today?

                God created us — God wants us to obey the commandments —
                    To be grateful, to thank Him, love Him, serve Him,
                    God wants us to be like little children
                        obeying Him — being faithful to Him


                God gives us such gifts in the Church
                    Jesus gives us the sacraments
                    After Communion — Jesus gives us Himself in the Eucharist
                    Oh Jesus you are in me
                    My beloved, I long for You, I want to tell
                    the world about the gift of the Eucharist
                    Fill me now with Your love —
                    I beg You to outpour Your grace abundantly —
                    Oh God —
                    I long for Thee —
                    Fill me so I will be Your instrument —
                    Go from the Church with Your life in me —
                    Help me, now Jesus, I love You —

                    I pray for all these people I love and want to pray
                        for — Oh God I entrust those who served You,
                        and love You so much into Your care —

                Love the Unloving is the message of the Blue Books

                Be gentle of heart —

                Don't take in hatred —

                Jesus: Listen to your beloved ones and entrust them
                    to My care — do not give into satan to
                    divide you, be of a gentle heart,
                    know satan is pressing down — he
                    wants you to hate —
                    Love and come to Me —
                    Put your head on My shoulder —
                    Learn from Me —
                    I am love — I have all the power —

                Pray to the Holy Spirit for your beloved —

                Come to the Eucharist —

                I love you, so, so much —
                I love you, I love you, I love you —

                The heart pumps life to the body —
                Your heart needs to be pumping —

                You need oxygen
                You need Me —

                I am always with you —
                I am ready to hold you next to My Heart —

                You are never alone —
                I am here —

                I love you so much 

 

 

 

                Come Unto Me all who are weary and have rest
                    for your soul —

                Love the unloving —

                Be kind to those who persecute you

 

    

Mysteries of Light

 

                Jesus is Baptized in the Jordon

                (1) Water, Clearwater —
                    Mary: I appeared in Clearwater.

                (2) Mary: I love you so much.

                (3) Matthew 3: 13-17

Then Jesus appeared: he came from Galilee to the Jordan to be baptised by John. John tried to dissuade him, with the words, ‘It is I who need baptism from you, and yet you come to me!’ But Jesus replied, ‘Leave it like this for the time being; it is fitting that we should, in this way, do all that uprightness demands.’ Then John gave in to him. And when Jesus had been baptised he at once came up from the water, and suddenly the heavens opened and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and coming down on him. And suddenly there was a voice from heaven, ‘This is my Son, the Beloved; my favour rests on him.’ 

                (4) Mary: Jesus is the perfect Son of God —

                (5) Mary: God gives you a sign —
                        You hear the voice of the Father —
                        You see the Son and
                        You see, my Spouse, the Holy Spirit above Him.

                (6) Mary: God is giving you a sign —
                        God wants you to love Him - with your
                        whole heart, your whole soul, your
                        whole being —

                (7) Mary: Jesus wants you to be faithful to Him.

                (8) Mary: Jesus is the Bread of Life.

                (9) Mary: Jesus is the Light of the World.

                (10) Mary: Jesus is your brother, I am your
                            spiritual Mother.

     

 

                Marriage at Cana

                (1) John 2: 1-10  

On the third day there was a wedding at Cana in Galilee. The mother of Jesus was there, and Jesus and his disciples had also been invited. And they ran out of wine, since the wine provided for the feast had all been used, and the mother of Jesus said to him, ‘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.’  There were six stone water jars standing there, meant for the ablutions that are customary among the Jews: each could hold twenty or thirty gallons. Jesus said to the servants, ‘Fill the jars with water,’ and they filled them to the brim. Then he said to them, ‘Draw some out now and take it to the president of the feast.’ They did this; the president tasted the water, and it had turned into wine. Having no idea where it came from—though the servants who had drawn the water knew—the president of the feast called the bridegroom and said, ‘Everyone serves good wine first and the worse wine when the guests are well wined; but you have kept the best wine till now.’ 

                (2) Mary: God gave a sign to you.

                (3) Mary: God is so giving
                        You are to be thankful children —
                        faithful to God.

                (4) Mary: Do whatever Jesus tells you —

                (5) Mary: Jesus is the Lamb of God.

                (6) Mary: Jesus worked this first public
                        miracle at Cana.

                (7) Mary: Jesus changed the water in the
                        jugs to wine.

                (8) Mary: Go to Jesus in the Eucharist —
                        Pray to my Spouse the Holy Spirit
                        Surrender
                        Let God change your stony hearts —

                (9) Mary: I am Our Lady —
                        I am Mary Immaculate
                        I am the Lady of Light

                (10) Mary: I love you more than any Mother could —
                        Come to me as a little child.

    

 

                Kingdom of God

                (1) Mary: God gives you the Word.

                (2) Mary: The Word and the Eucharist is the Bread
                        of Life —

                (3) Mary: God feeds you with the Word and the Eucharist.

                (4) Mary: God wants you to come to the Mountain
                        and be fed by Him.

                (5) Mary: God wants you to spread the Good News.

                (6) Mary: God wants you to be an instrument of Light.

                (7) Mary: God wants you to help build the Kingdom
                        of God.

                (8) Mary: Jesus gives you Himself in
                        the Eucharist.

                (9) Mary: I am Mary your Mother —
                        Listen to me —
                        I love you so much.

                (10) Mary: Sing Song
                            "Come Unto Me all who are Weary"

   

 

                Transfiguration

                (1) Mark 9: 2-8

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.

                (2) Mary: America see the green flat lands and
                        the plentiful crops —
                        Don't be greedy —
                        Be generous
                        Thank your God for His gifts.

                (3) Mary: God gives to you —
                        Look at what Jesus showed the Apostles
                            on Mt. Tabor —

                (4) Mary: God is Light and
                        In Him there is no darkness.

                (5) Mary: Jesus is the Son of God —
                        You are to model your lives after Jesus —
                            the New Adam.

                (6) Mary: Light, Light, Light
                        God is light.

                (7) Mary: America, God gives you the Son
                        I was permitted to appear in sunny Florida —
                        God gives you light —
                        God gives you the moon and the stars —
                        God GIVES — America
                        Thank Him and be faithful.

                (8) Mary: I am Our Lady of Light.
                        I appeared in Clearwater — the
                            Lady clothed as the sun
   

                (9) Mary: Your life goes by so fast America —
                        here today, gone tomorrow —
                        Live to love

                (10) Mary: The little flowers of the field God
                        created for you to see — that your
                        eyes would see more the beauty
                        of God.

   

 

                Institution of the Eucharist

                (1) Matthew 26: 26-29

Now as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had said the blessing he broke it and gave it to the disciples. ‘Take it and eat,’ he said, ‘this is my body.’ Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he handed it to them saying, ‘Drink from this, all of you, for this is my blood, the blood of the covenant, poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. From now on, I tell you, I shall never again drink wine until the day I drink the new wine with you in the kingdom of my Father.’

                (2) Mary: Slow down America —
                        Discern the spirits
                        You move too fast.

                (3) Mary: Go to the Eucharist
                        Do adoration.

                (4) Mary: I am Mary, Mother of the Eucharist.


   

                (5) Mary: I love Jesus —
                        My children you miss out when you
                            don't love God and others —
                            you are sad and depressed.

                (6) Mary: Love yourselves for the unique
                        Creation of God you are, but
                        know you are not perfect —
                        say you are sorry —
                        forgive yourselves after confession —
                        but remember your weaknesses —
                        forgive as you wish to be forgiven.

                (7) Mary: God tends to the lilies of the field.

                (8) Mary: Jesus give you Himself —
                        What a gift —
                        Thank Jesus — say you are sorry
                            for your sins.

                (9)

 

                (10)

 

 

                    Mary: Keep moving to do what Jesus
                        asked, my shepherds,
                        live to love and please Jesus,
                        He will not be outdone in
                        generosity.
                    His Heart is on fire for love
                        of you.
                    I am Mary your Mother —
                        Lady of Light
                        Lady of Clearwater

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)
