August 13, 1917

Because of the excitement caused by the apparitions, the civil authorities were so alarmed that they kidnapped the three young visionaries and put them in jail. The incarceration period included the day of August 13. Consequently, Our Lady did not appear to the children on this particular 13th.

The authorities, fearing reaction on the part of the people, quickly released the children. Mary appeared to them on August 19 near Valinhos:

She told them she was greatly displeased by the action of the mayor. As a result, the miracle promised for October would not be as impressive as originally planned. 15

15. Our Lady's Peace Plan, op cit., p.6.
 

 

Mary appeared August 19th.

 

 

 

Excerpt from August 12, 1999

River view from Tom's Farm

R. This is the site of the rosary at Tom's farm
August 13, 1996, and August 27, 1996.


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

All of my experiences are recorded in notebooks, rosary meditations and materials spread throughout the Ministry on computers, discs, etc. I do not know how to use a computer.

There are so many things that have happened, but the experiences and dates are engraved in my soul. I write from all I remember of these experiences. On the morning of August 12, 1996, I was told to go to Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center. There in those early morning hours Mary appeared all night. I remember the darkness of the Sorrowful Mother Chapel, black, and I only saw the light of Mary. She appeared in that same glorious light of hers, light like fluorescent, but not like that at all because it is like nothing I have ever seen. I cried out to her and begged the Father to please help me to do what They had asked me, and all of us, to do. I felt I prayed as never before.Sorrowful Mother Statue at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center

The next morning of the 13th of August Mary appeared again in the same place for several hours in the same exact setting in that white light in the darkened Sorrowful Mother Chapel in the corner. In the late afternoon of the 13th, I would go to the Sorrowful Mother Chapel again.

The Eucharist was exposed and the whole front of the chapel was covered with a celestial aura and she appeared again. This time the light and the aura were a golden light, almost like a gold glistening veil across the whole front of the chapel in front of the exposed Eucharist and before Mary. I did not want to leave there. I drove to the rosary at Tom's farm, the mikes for the rosary were missing. The younger shepherds had to go to the store to get some mikes. John Weickert was there for the first time on the farm. I asked him to say the 7 Sorrows of Mary. What appeared to me to be a mixed-up situation without the mikes and equipment turned out to be a night of great grace. I didn't know all what was happening. Here is an account of what happened to two others there at the rosary. It is accounted because Father Carter asked that it be written down.


Vision as seen by another woman, August 13, 1996
Apostles Manual, pp. 219 - 220
Arlinghaus' Farm, Shepherds of Christ meeting

"On August 13, 1996 during the Shepherds of Christ prayer meeting, I saw the miracle of the sun.

When John started the Seven Sorrows of Mary, the sun appeared to be spinning through the trees. There was a disk in front of the sun. The disk was turning different colors including "Virgin Mary Blue". Different colored lasers also appeared to be coming from the sun.

The sun started growing brighter than normal that I had to close my eyes. When I opened them, the tree below the sun had turned to a brilliant light. The Angel of the Lord was in the tree.

I then noticed a very blue line coming down the middle of the river towards our side of the shore. After the blue line reached the shore, I felt a drop of water on my forehead. I looked up and saw nothing. I proceeded to pray when, I felt another drop of water fall on my forehead. One more time I looked up and saw nothing. When I looked towards the river again there was a brilliant golden light standing on the river. The brilliant golden light, which was the Angel of the Lord, ascended from the river and disappeared over the state of Kentucky.

I then looked straight ahead towards the deck, and when I did, I noticed more brilliant lights in the bushes and trees surrounding the deck and us. *There appeared to be angels encamped all around us.

Next I noticed the bottom branches of the tree directly in front of the deck moving and bending, it is then that I saw the brilliant outlines of Jesus and Mary in the tree. They were standing side by side in the tree during the entire rosary."

*Footnote~ On Monday night I kept waking up from my sleep hearing myself say, "The angel of Yahweh pitches camp round those who fear him; and he keeps them safe."

Vision as seen by another person, August 13, 1996
Apostles Manual, pp. 218 - 219
Arlinghaus' Farm, Shepherds of Christ meeting

"I had a profound experience this evening. As soon as the rosary started, I looked up towards the sun and I couldn't turn away. I realized there was a covering over the sun and that I would perhaps witness the miracle of the sun. Instead, after a few rotations, I began to see clear pictures: first, I saw the cross, Mary and Joseph holding our baby Jesus, and then what seemed to be a large Host, the Monstrance, and an angel holding up the Host, but I wasn't sure so I closed my eyes and said to myself, 'Dear Lord, I would love to see an angel as I have never seen one.' And with that within a split second a huge figure appeared, bigger than life, and came crashing to the earth, right before our group and returned. It was St. Michael! I recognized him immediately - his short, curly blond hair, his armor, which was brownish, but the whole figure of Michael was orange. His presence filled the whole area with bright light. It is difficult to describe, but I see St. Michael before me now as he appeared and want to share this with everyone because, surely, he has appeared to assure us of his protection for the Shepherds of Christ."

* Warning: Eye damage can occur from staring at the sun.


R. Mary spoke in the rosary. She gave the following message at the beginning of the mystery of the Visitation.

Mary had been rather silent in the rosaries for much of the year since about February, except for a rosary she delivered April 25, 1996, for the youth at a Junior Shepherds of Christ Meeting.

It was a gift when Mary spoke that evening August 13, 1996, (she would deliver Mary's Message of August 27, 1996, two weeks later on Tom's farm.

Mary's Message is the message she wishes circulated with her image in Florida).

The message that follows is the message Mary delivered August 13, 1996 on the farm after some silence in the rosary. Very soon John Weickert became our President.


Excerpt from August 13, 1996 - The Visitation

Mary: My dear children, on the 13th of this month I come to you to deliver this message. I have not given to you this message before. I am Mary, your Mother. I ask you to come to my spiritual womb, to take refuge from the terrors of the night. In my womb, I will hold you close to me and protect you from all the terrors in your life. Do not give in to Satan. Satan is a roaring lion, prowling this earth, attempting to catch you in his snare. You must not surrender. You must give your heart to me and to the Heart of my Son. Please, my little children, come to me and I will care for you. I am your Mother. I am caring for you with the greatest motherly love. You do not know how I want to mother you and to love you. You are as little children, afraid and wounded. I will heal your wounds. I will comfort you in your fear. I am the Mother of greatest love and I love you, my little children. I will take you to the Heart of my Son, Jesus. This is a special message that I deliver for you this evening. May you hold this message in your heart, and may you come to my heart at every moment and find refuge from the terrors of the night.

R. The 10th meditation of the mystery, The Finding in the Temple:

10. Jesus: Will you go out to the world and tell them that I am truly present and that I am waiting for them, or will you squander this knowledge and keep it to yourself? You are My apostles that I am sending into the world to spread My love. I ask you to please circulate the second Blue Book and to tell all that I am God and I am waiting for them in church.

(R. At the very end of the rosary Jesus gave the following messages:)

Jesus: How I suffered the hours of agony in the garden for all the hours that I would spend in the tabernacle and would be forgotten and ignored. I am waiting to give you great gifts. If you come to Me, I will outpour My gifts to you. I want you to love Me. I want you to love Me and to tell others how I love them and want to be loved by them. This is My message in the rosary. I love you. I love all souls, and I want to be loved by you and by all souls. I am Jesus. Will you love Me? Will you tell Me all through the day how you love Me? Will you delight My Heart and give Me your love? At every moment I am waiting for you to talk to Me, to be united to Me that I will live in you, love in you, and touch others around you, for as you visit with one another, you are Christ to one another, and I live in your heart, and I live in this world in you. Will you love Me?

Jesus: My dear, sweet, loving child. I am calling you to the Heart of My Mother. It is there that the Holy Spirit will sanctify you, that you will be molded more and more into My image. It is there that you will be protected. Come to the Heart of My Mother, and the Holy Spirit will make you holy. As you dwell in Our Hearts, you will become more holy. You will be loving in this world, for you will be saturated with My life and with My love. You cannot do this on your own. You must realize that you are totally dependent upon Me to love and to be Christ-like. You must pray for the grace, for I will give you this grace if you pray fervently. It is by grace that you will change. The hearts of many will be changed by My grace. The more you try to control and to change others, you will see many times that you fail. You must come to Me and let Me work in you. Pray for the grace. Unite all of your activities to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass so that you help obtain grace for others. Come and dwell in Our Hearts, for you will be safe from the terrors of the night. You will be filled with My life and with My love, and you will carry the message of this love into the world. You are saturated with grace when you dwell in My Heart. Realize, realize your dependency on Me. Do not think that you can do this alone. You need My grace. In one moment I can give a grace that would change this world. Through your good acts, through your love, moment by moment doing the Father's will with love, grace is released on this earth. Come and be one in Our Hearts and unite to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and great grace will be released on this earth, and the fire of My love will spread across this earth and many hearts will fervently love Me and be taken to heaven because of the work that you are doing. Souls are at stake. Every moment is urgent. The work that you do this day will help your brothers to get to heaven. You must not give up or let up or give in to the tauntings of Satan to stop you. I love you. I love you. Come to My Heart, and I will bathe you in this love.

  

From November 18, 1999

Jesus: I show you a mystical veil of light, looking as little minute golden snowflakes, an aura of mystery, a beauty beyond words, a veil to cover the hard cold reality of a hardened world so straight and hard, almost seemingly unable to bend or surrender. The hard must bend to the soft, the darkness must give way to the light. On that day, you arose with your busy schedule and you were stopped by the white sparkling veil of a fallen snow that covered the earth a foot deep, and you saw the beauty of it as it came down, so gentle and sweet. Your eyes were awed by its beauty, your body stiff when, because of an act of the Creator, you could not carry out your busy schedule.

And if it were up to you, you may want to run today and milk the cow, operate the fax, talk of the productivity to the earth, and yet, because of some limitations now, you are confined to your bed.

The dawning of a new day is that of surrender to the will of God. It can be the freshly fallen snow that has stopped you. It can be cancer that is killing you and has taken over your body, any illness or your old age. You might be confined to bed, or a chair, or you just can't do much physically. Whatever it is, it is the dawning of a new day. What good would it do for the woman who rises and finds a snow bank surrounding her house to curse the day? It is the act of the Creator's hand you say, so He allowed it, so surrender. Do what He wills. "The very hairs of your head are numbered."

You must surrender when your body is filled with cancer.

You can help so many souls and help yourselves to gain a greater reward in heaven. Is it better to surrender to those things you cannot control and stay connected to God than to become bitter? Do not fight the Father's plan. Why do you not see My hand in your suffering to slow you down sometimes?

It isn't your "gadgets" that are of the greatest importance, it is that you surrender to the will of God. It isn't that your life was so important before when you were building buildings, raising your children, making millions, whatever it was you did before, and now your life is not as important.

I lived a quiet life for 30 years.

Today you are on the dawning of eternity. Every moment is so important to Me. Your life lived as the Father wills can help so many souls.

Every moment your life is so important to the salvation of your soul and others.

God is with you in the cross you are carrying. Identify with Me. Offer it up for souls. Every moment is so important to Me. Should you rage at the snow fall outside the tent and would it do you any good?

The soft touch of the Creator surrounds you, the very hairs of your head as numbered. Your life today is important as were other moments of your life.

You live to help yourself get to heaven and see My face and have the deepest union with Me. You live to help save souls, to love your brothers and pray for them. I laid down My life for their souls. I ask you to identify with Me. You are My hands, My feet, My Heart. Today you must live your life as it is, living within your human limitations. I ask you to come to Me, that I may use you to help the souls of the earth. I give you life, I can take it away.

Always, My concern is to lead you to the deepest union with Me and for you to help save souls.

Oh My soul, I love you so tenderly and so much.

I love you, My dear chosen one. I love you, I love you, I love you.

I am Jesus, Savior of the World.

I died for my precious souls, will you not suffer for Me?

Matthew 25: 1-13

‘Then the kingdom of Heaven will be like this: Ten wedding attendants took their lamps and went to meet the bridegroom. Five of them were foolish and five were sensible: the foolish ones, though they took their lamps, took no oil with them, whereas the sensible ones took flasks of oil as well as their lamps. The bridegroom was late, and they all grew drowsy and fell asleep. But at midnight there was a cry, "Look! The bridegroom! Go out and meet him." Then all those wedding attendants woke up and trimmed their lamps, and the foolish ones said to the sensible ones, "Give us some of your oil: our lamps are going out." But they replied, "There may not be enough for us and for you; you had better go to those who sell it and buy some for yourselves." They had gone off to buy it when the bridegroom arrived. Those who were ready went in with him to the wedding hall and the door was closed. The other attendants arrived later. "Lord, Lord," they said, "open the door for us." But he replied, "In truth I tell you, I do not know you." So stay awake, because you do not know either the day or the hour.

    

                In heaven there is perfect poverty, chastity and
                    obedience —

                The religious orders are to prepare the people
                    for this special gift of heaven —
                    there is no money in heaven

                    and as it says in the Our Father
                    ... "thy will be done on earth as

                We have the weakness of the tainted vision due to
                    original sin —
                    we see each other through tainted vision
                    we see God with tainted vision
                    we see ourselves with tainted vision

    

Excerpt

Transcribed from a tape entitled

The Blessed Mother 

Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen
Conference given for priests - Conference 18
Ministr-o media, Inc. 1974

 

Lovely Lady dressed in blue,
    teach me how to pray.
God was just your little Boy,
    tell me what to say.

Did you lift Him up sometimes,
    gently on your knee?
Did you sing to Him the way
    mother does to me?

Did you ever try telling Him
    stories of the world?
And oh, did He cry?

Do you think He cares
    if I tell Him things?
Just little things that happen.

And do angels wings make a noise?
    Can He hear me if I speak low?
Does He understand me now?
    Tell me for you know.

Lovely Lady dressed in blue,
    teach me how to pray.
God was just your little boy
    and you know the way.”

   

                We seek to see through the eyes of God

  

Hebrews Chapter 11

        The exemplary faith of our ancestors

   Only faith can guarantee the blessings that we hope for, or prove the existence of realities that are unseen. It is for their faith that our ancestors are acknowledged.

   It is by faith that we understand that the ages were created by a word from God, so that from the invisible the visible world came to be.

   It was because of his faith that Abel offered God a better sacrifice than Cain, and for that he was acknowledged as upright when God himself made acknowledgement of his offerings. Though he is dead, he still speaks by faith.

   It was because of his faith that Enoch was taken up and did not experience death: he was no more, because God took him; because before his assumption he was acknowledged to have pleased God. Now it is impossible to please God without faith, since anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and rewards those who seek him.

   It was through his faith that Noah, when he had been warned by God of something that had never been seen before, took care to build an ark to save his family. His faith was a judgement on the world, and he was able to claim the uprightness which comes from faith.

   It was by faith that Abraham obeyed the call to set out for a country that was the inheritance given to him and his descendants, and that he set out without knowing where he was going. By faith he sojourned in the Promised Land as though it were not his, living in tents with Isaac and Jacob, who were heirs with him of the same promise. He looked forward to the well-founded city, designed and built by God.

   It was equally by faith that Sarah, in spite of being past the age, was made able to conceive, because she believed that he who had made the promise was faithful to it.

Because of this, there came from one man, and one who already had the mark of death on him, descendants as numerous as the stars of heaven and the grains of sand on the seashore which cannot be counted.

   All these died in faith, before receiving any of the things that had been promised, but they saw them in the far distance and welcomed them, recognising that they were only strangers and nomads on earth. People who use such terms about themselves make it quite plain that they are in search of a homeland. If they had meant the country they came from, they would have had the opportunity to return to it; but in fact they were longing for a better homeland, their heavenly homeland. That is why God is not ashamed to be called their God, since he has founded the city for them.

   It was by faith that Abraham, when put to the test, offered up Isaac. He offered to sacrifice his only son even though he had yet to receive what had been promised, and he had been told: Isaac is the one through whom your name will be carried on. He was confident that God had the power even to raise the dead; and so, figuratively speaking, he was given back Isaac from the dead.

   It was by faith that this same Isaac gave his blessing to Jacob and Esau for the still distant future. By faith Jacob, when he was dying, blessed each of Joseph's sons, bowed in reverence, as he leant on his staff. It was by faith that, when he was about to die, Joseph mentioned the Exodus of the Israelites and gave instructions about his own remains.

   It was by faith that Moses, when he was born, was kept hidden by his parents for three months; because they saw that he was a fine child; they were not afraid of the royal edict. It was by faith that, when he was grown up, Moses refused to be known as the son of Pharaoh's daughter and chose to be ill-treated in company with God's people rather than to enjoy the transitory pleasures of sin. He considered that the humiliations offered to the Anointed were something more precious than all the treasures of Egypt, because he had his eyes fixed on the reward. It was by faith that he left Egypt without fear of the king's anger; he held to his purpose like someone who could see the Invisible. It was by faith that he kept the Passover and sprinkled the blood to prevent the Destroyer from touching any of their first-born sons. It was by faith they crossed the Red Sea as easily as dry land, while the Egyptians, trying to do the same, were drowned.

   It was through faith that the walls of Jericho fell down when the people had marched round them for seven days. It was by faith that Rahab the prostitute welcomed the spies and so was not killed with the unbelievers.

   What more shall I say? There is not time for me to give an account of Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah, or of David, Samuel and the prophets. These were men who through faith conquered kingdoms, did what was upright and earned the promises. They could keep a lion's mouth shut, put out blazing fires and emerge unscathed from battle. They were weak people who were given strength to be brave in war and drive back foreign invaders. Some returned to their wives from the dead by resurrection; and others submitted to torture, refusing release so that they would rise again to a better life. Some had to bear being pilloried and flogged, or even chained up in prison. They were stoned, or sawn in half, or killed by the sword; they were homeless, and wore only the skins of sheep and goats; they were in want and hardship, and maltreated. They were too good for the world and they wandered in deserts and mountains and in caves and ravines. These all won acknowledgment through their faith, but they did not receive what was promised, since God had made provision for us to have something better, and they were not to reach perfection except with us.  

  

                Mary and Jesus have given us Rosaries from the Hearts
                    of Jesus and Mary
to see from Their pure
                    and holy Hearts —
                    the plan of the Father for the world — more clearly —
                    The Holy Spirit to help us see —
                        insight into the Divine Mysteries

                    Let my ears hear Your melody Oh God —
                        a melody many saints heard as they were
                        led to martyrdom

                The Sounds of heaven — the love of the Hearts of
                    Jesus and Mary

                With eyes I see the beauty of this world and
                    the spiritual grandeur is veiled, but you
                    unveil it more and more to me as I live a
                    life of holiness — for You my God —
                    I seek the harps of heaven —
                    The embrace of the beatific vision
                    Knowing to satisfy my aching soul —

                Knowing and loving You God for I want to be
                    in heaven filled with Your life —
                    I seek You God
                    I love You God
                    You, Oh God are my delight

                When the rain comes it can come to refresh the
                    earth and water the land, give drink
                    to us creatures —

Second Rosary August 13th Under the Tent

At the Morrow Center

Sorrowful Mysteries

The Agony in the Garden

1. From the Mass Book, p. 6 December the 19th, 1996 There is a Man on the Cross. God wants union with us. He wants fire. Many try to love God with a cold heart. They tell Him words that they think they should say that are loving. When one loves, they do not need to be prompted to say words. From the depth of their being they cry out their words of love. It is a cry from within, from the fire within their chest, behind the words. The words are burning in their chests and must be released because of the fire behind them.

2. There is a Man on the Cross continues. We are as blind men. We do not see the great gifts that God gives to us. It is as if we stand by the shore of the sea and throw little words at Jesus. We must not be afraid to jump into the water and be completely immersed in His love. He was consumed with such love for us. He gave Himself to His death on the cross. There is a man on a cross and He tells us so many things. He does not have to speak. When we study Him on the cross, He speaks to us with His pierced hands His head covered with blood, His body withered and beaten. He speaks to us of His undying love.

3. There is a Man on the Cross continues. Oh, my beloved Savior, I am blind. I am selfish. I do not see the great reservoir of love that You give to me. I see the man dying on the cross. How do I see Him? Do I see a figure and I think, oh, it is a pretty cross. Would it look good in my living room? Do I think, oh, I guess I should have one in my house, others will think I am holy then? Holy people do have a cross in their homes. Do I see a body of a man, a live man? Do I see His labored breath? Do I see His chest move as His Heart beats within? Do I see the real skin of a man? Do I see the real Blood He shed? Do I see the light that silhouettes His withered body? Do I see the Light of the World?

4. There is a Man on the Cross continues. Do I see the tender skin of an infant laid on bare wood in a manger and then the torn, lacerated, bloodied skin of this man? There is a man on the cross. There is a child born to us today. He is the Light of the World. His light is shining in the darkness, but people do not see. They see the wood but they view it for the beauty it will create in their newly decorated living rooms.

5. There is a Man on the Cross continues. Be with Jesus in the garden. Be there and be within the Heart of Jesus. And feel how He felt in His Heart to know that so many would reject Him and they would hate Him and they would not love Him. And what He wants is love and so many this day do not even think of Jesus. And some are so disrespectful and they hate Jesus and they talked about Him with slanderous words and they use His name in vain. We are a sinful and willful race and God is all good and gives to us great gifts and we are not appreciating the gift that He gives to us - the gift of Himself.

6. It is a sad day and it is a sad world. Jesus wanted the brochures circulated for the Big Boom for He wants people to realize that the messages that He gives here are valid. And the conclusion is this: that we must pray, that He has given these messages that lead people to the Eucharist, to adoration, to time spent with Him after Communion. He has given these messages to lead people to deeper prayer in the Shepherds of Christ Movement and in praying for the priests and the renewal of the Church and the world. We hope that people will believe that He is talking here and turn their hearts to hearts that will pray, that will help us to reach the priests, that will help us to circulate the priestly newsletter.

7. Let us study the battered body of Christ on the cross. As I study His pierced hands and feet, His head crowned with thorns, the blood pouring forth from His Heart, as I view the lacerations covering His body, I feel His word well up in my heart. He speaks to Me in the depth of my soul and I hear Him say, “I love you. I love you. I love you. I died for you, I love you.”

8. Song: I come to you with greatest love

10. (This is on page 6.) Song: Give me Your Heart, oh Jesus

Message before Glory Be:

(This is page 9.) Song: I love you this day, I am your ardent Love

Message after the Glory Be:

p. 152 - November the 15th, 1995. These are all from the Mass Book. “‘Feel Their Pain.’ Jesus was in the garden, and His Heart was torn in His chest because of the pain He suffered for the love of His precious souls. My heart was in such agony, pain, excruciating, buckling over pain in my heart. I know the pain of rejection, of loving and being ignored. I know the pain that made my heart ache, as if a lance pierced it, in the garden and remained in it, excruciating pain in the heart. Oh Jesus, how it hurts. Nothing can top this pain in the heart. My heart hurts so badly, I cannot describe it. I opened up Father Carter’s book, Mother at My Side, and it read: ‘Who can fathom the depth of her [Mary] grief as she watched her innocent Son suffer the excruciating pain and death of the crucifixion?’”

 

The Scourging at the Pillar

1. From the Mass Book, p.187 The Earth Stopped and I Touched Heaven. I long to unite in the deepest union with Him in the Eucharist. I long for the Mass. I long for Thee, oh God. My every moment, I join as I did to You December 15 under the cross, where I felt Your presence. You whisked me away, and I was totally absorbed in that moment of celestial union with You. For that time, I existed only in You, in the deepest union, and I was in this moment existing in You. The earth stopped, and I touched the heavens, all my bodily cares were existent in You. I existed in Your Divinity, my being was in You. There was no desire or wish or wanting, for in that moment, I had all I wanted in You. I was satisfied and wanted nothing but to remain in that embrace. You were the Being, and my being existed in You, but I was only as I was in You - merged in You, knowing and being in Your Divinity and being so full as to feel complete in myself.

2. From the Mass Book, p.187 The place Jesus took me was into the deepest recesses of His Heart. I was enveloped in His burning love. It was a red room with heat and an intense glow. I was swept away in this embrace and I only existed in Him. The power of the Almighty God enveloped me, and I only existed in Him.. There was no fear for I was existent in this Almighty Being. My heart was wrapped in the eternal embrace of this Supreme Being. The security, the power I know was His deep presence in which I existed.

3. (Page 10) Song: In the deepest recesses of My Heart (verse 1)

R. This is a song that Jesus told me to sing and then He told me to bring the message (December 18th, 1995). When I got here, then I was trying to find it. And it talks about this little child that is standing out by a tree in the dark night and the wind and the rain is coming and it’s beating down on them. And I got here and I looked for that message in this book and I couldn’t find it. That message was the one He told me to bring and then at the last minute when I ran out of the house, I didn’t bring it this morning. He said to bring that message and to sing this song.

Song: In the deepest recesses of My Heart (verse 2)

R. It’s like we’re in His Heart under this big tent …and we’re all one in Him because we’ve consecrated our hearts and we know that He is protecting us in a special way… This is a song He told me to sing, I guess it was around quarter of seven or seven o’clock this morning and He told me to bring this message about the little girl.

The Carrying of the Cross

1. Hail Mary
2. Hail Mary
3. Hail Mary

4. I scarce could stand to walk the way with Him, Mary speaks, I was so sick at what they had done, but I wanted to be with my Son. I walked by the grace of God.

Jesus: My suffering was intensified by the sorrow and suffering of My Mother. My eyes met her and I saw her red, teary face. All they did to Me but to watch My beloved Mother suffer. She heard the cross as it thumped up the hill. The sounds were so loud and at the sight, she had to look away. Stand by Me and walk this road to Calvary. Listen and see My beaten body. Hear the jeers of the crowd. Hear the thumping of the cross. Listen when it falls hard on Me and I can scarcely go any more. Walk with Me and be there. Then think of your little crosses I ask you to carry. Do not put them down. Accept them for Me. It is in your crosses you are drawn closer to Me. I endured all this suffering for deep and ardent love of you. I would do it today for you.

5. Hail Mary

6. August the 23, 1993. Jesus: My dear child, I was condemned to death, death on a cross. They gave Me a big cross and made Me carry it. They stood around and glared at Me. It laid on My shoulder and I pulled at it until it finally moved and it was almost impossible to drag it weighing so heavily on My shoulder. My shoulder felt as if it would crack and the cross would fall through to the ground. I couldn’t drag it anymore. I tried. I fell. I fell and its weight fell on Me. A guard hit Me with something sharp. It really hurt because he wanted Me to move, and fast. People were watching. On with the show. How dare Me fall in the middle of the show! He hit Me again and the blows really stung Me. I got up. It hurt so badly. I tried to walk on. My Mother was in the crowd. She looked at Me and her face looked red and hurt. Tears rolled down her cheek like rain. As her eyes met Mine, I was so hurt by her sorrow. She was always by My side, silent and loving. She was My Mother of love. She is always there next to you when you suffer. She suffers your pain with you. When others sin, they hurt Me and My Mother. We are sorrowful when you are wounded by your brothers. I fell again and he, the guard, really hit Me. It, the cross was so heavy that he and I, together, we could barely move it. It seemed as I walked, heavier with the sins of the world heaped on it. My hands were bleeding. Blood ran from the wounds on my thorns and My head throbbed, seeming to make the wounds in My head bleed even more. Some of My blood was dried, some of it was running all over My body. I had so many cuts and bruises and people watched and laughed. I am Jesus, Son of the Living God, and they laughed and they mimicked Me. Oh such hardened hearts, how vile can men’s hearts become! The devil’s grip is paralyzing and crippling. All suffer when satan is in a man’s heart. Satan is in charge and the man becomes his slave.

7. August the 23, 1993 continues Jesus: When they wept for Me and I fell again, the walk was so long, up a hill and over rocks. The cross had to be lifted over the rocks. My body was bleeding so badly. My Heart was pounding and I thought that I had no blood left, that it had all gone out through My wounds. I knew the salvation of all men depended on My love, that I would go through such agony. I thought of My intense love for you, that many would go to heaven because of My suffering, and I continued to the top of the hill. At the top, they laid Me on the cross and with a big hammer nailed My hands to it. It was the worst suffering yet. My hands were nailed with big nails and a big hammer. Oh, it was unbelievable! Then, as if that wasn’t enough, with a big nail, they nailed both feet. Oh, how could you do this to anyone! Then they lifted the cross and banged it into a hole in the ground. My body hung by the weight of My hands, supported by My feet. My shoulders ached and how I hung. My head bobbed and My neck ached and they laughed at Me. ‘Now save Yourself.’ I hurt so much. I suffered this way for hours, which seemed like forever. They glared at Me and they laughed and My Mother watched in such agony.

8. August the 23, 1993 continues Jesus: ‘Oh God, My God, why have you forsaken Me?’ I did this for love of you so you could get to heaven. For the love of you, I gave you My body to My death. My child, I shed My blood and gave My life that you might be with Me forever in heaven - not for a day or a month or a year, but forever with Me in heaven. I am the true Bread come down from heaven. He who eats My flesh will have life forever, for the drink I give you is My Blood and the food you eat is My Body. Who would lay down his life for a friend? I did for you. I love you this much, child. Forget about those who reject you. You have My life that I gave to you and I gave you life eternal. I am the one true God. I am the Light of Life. He who abides in Me will have life eternal, for the drink I give is My Blood and the food I give is My Body.” He really says, “I am the one true God.” He said that “I am the one true God.” “Drink and eat and have everlasting life. My child, that is all you need to know. Love one another and be good that you may enter into My Kingdom.”

9. Song: Take and eat, take and eat.

10. Hail Mary

 

The Crucifixion

1. Blue Book III, p. 103 May the 25th, 1994.Mary:As tenderly as I beheld my beautiful Son in my arms with such love, I watched His death on the cross with such anguish. My heart torn apart by the sight of Him hanging in such pain. I scarce could stand. I was held up by my beloved John. Joy and pain. The pain to behold Him in His suffering and the joy to know your salvation was won through His blood. Such lamenting! I could not cry deep enough for the anguish I felt. His blood was spent. His life was given. He did this, my child, for love of you. I am your Mother. I love you, my precious ones. I love you as I love my beautiful Son, Jesus. I am Mary, your beloved Mother. Call to Me. I know your sufferings. I will comfort you. I suffered for love of you. You are so precious to us. Live in the love of my Son. He is with you this day in the Eucharist. I am Mary, your Mother. Thank you for responding to my call.

Mary’s Message

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

Song: Mary’s Song

 

From Tell My People by Fr. Edward J. Carter, S.J.

The Tears and Sorrows of Mary

Mary: “My beloved priest-son, I have given you a great devotion to my sorrows and tears. Tell my people about this devotion. Tell them I promise great blessings to all who say seven Hail Marys each day in honor of my tears and seven sorrows. Included in my promise is that of granting special assistance at the hour of death. At this moment, all who practice this devotion will see my face.”

Reflection: Listed below are the seven sorrows of Mary. Let us each day recall these sorrows as we pray the seven Hail Marys as Our Lady requests.

1. The prophecy of Simeon.
2. The Flight into Egypt.
3. The loss of Jesus in the Temple.
4. Jesus and Mary meet during the way of the cross.
5. Mary witnesses the crucifixion of her Son.
7. The burial of Jesus.

Prayer: Sorrowful Mother, obtain for us the grace to enter deeply into your sorrows. Let us realize that the more we are united with you in the carrying of the cross, the more we are united with you in sharing the joy of Christ’s resurrection.

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."

feast of Saint Ignatius Loyola, Founder of the Society of Jesus (The Jesuits)
