Mary speaks:          Please continue to pray, satan is
                            stronger every day. He is pressing on
                            your youth. He works in the media to try
                            to help change the hearts of those who
                            are just seeking entertainment.
                            My children, I cry to you on this
                            special feast to pray for the youth
                            My Son Jesus has called to His Movement,
                            satan wants to wipe them away.
                            Oh my people pray for those I have
                            asked you to pray for, the 
                            fallen angel wants to devour your young.
                            I love my little ones, I love my apostles,
                            Jesus has called to help me on this
                            special day. I am Our Lady, I am
                            the Lady that appeared at Guadalupe
                            and today I appear to you at my
                            image site in Clearwater, Florida.

                            Today, my children, live your spousal
                            union with Jesus. Do not get into
                            satan's traps. Oh my children
                            satan is attempting to steal the
                            hearts. Oh my children will you
                            give him your heart or will you
                            fight him. Do you see how 
                            serious this matter is? The evil
                            exists in many families. Satan
                            works through the television, 
                            the news, the movies, the music...

                            Satan is working—are you
                            working to help bring about
                            the Reign of my Son's Sacred
                            Heart and the triumph of 
                            my Immaculate Heart?

                                Oh my children, you are so 

                            blind and I cry to you to help

                            me reach my babies. Oh my

                            people who could suck a

                            little baby from the womb

                            of the mother.

                                Oh my children, help me

                            if your country can legalize

                            this, do you see that other

                            evils are apparent.

Mary speaks:      Oh my children, my beautiful

                            children created by God, I 

                            love you so very much, please

                            help me.

                            I am Mary your Mother

                            Queen of the Universe

                            Today I ask you to pray.

From the Rosary of August 13, 2002

 in China, Indiana



Messenger:  And on that April 17, 1994, 8 years ago, I sang this song, on that day when the sun spun at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center and today, 8 years later, Our Lord says that this is a message that He gives to us.

Song:  From the Day You were Born

Messenger:  And this is from Our Lord

Jesus speaks:  ‘Every day hear Me say, "here am I"’

Mary speaks:  And my beautiful children, I am Mary your Mother. And you have been called by my Son Jesus to help in the mission that I began at Fatima. And I call to you as Shepherds of Christ in the Shepherds of Christ Movement that you hear the words that We speak to you today in this message.

    For the work that you have accomplished has helped to change the hearts of so many on the face of this earth. And you cannot count on the numbers or all the things that you may think, that are important. But it is the steady movement ahead and the grace that is granted from your God that is making the difference in the work that you do. Do not be fearful and afraid but know that He is with you every step of the way.

    When you climb the highest mountain and the road is hard and your tears well-up in your eyes, know that it is Jesus that is with you, that holds your hand and loves you with the deepest burning love.

    Oh my children, you must trust Him. You have given yourselves so fully to Him and yet you are so afraid. Do not be afraid, my little ones, for your work is helping to bear so much fruit in the hearts of the clergy and leaders in the Church. Pray fervently for the response to the letters to the Hierarchy all through the week and hourly. Make this your commitment to pray for your bishops and archbishops, for the Jesuits and those involved that they will see with the light, a light that will enlighten them. A vision as never before where they will see the big picture, where they will commit their hearts to the Sacred Heart of my Son and give themselves in consecration to my Immaculate Heart.

Oh my children, do not under estimate the importance of the work that you do here. For I am Mary your Mother and I am with you in a special way in this little church in China, Indiana that my Son has chosen for His Eucharistic Center of the world.

Oh my children, I love you so and I thank you for the gift of yourself given in such service to Him. Do not worry my children for I am with you.

Messenger: A message from Jesus.   A Message from Jesus. 

Messenger: And the sun spun on that April 17, 1994 over the Holy Spirit Center and think of how Jesus has touched your life in that time with His Movement and He speaks today and He says:

Song:  From the Day You were Born

Messenger: And some of our very dear people has passed on

Song:  From the Day You were Born - continued

Messenger: And the seeds were sown by other hands than ours

Song:  From the Day You were Born - continued

Messenger: And sometimes it seems that we do not see the light and then across the dark sky comes that strike of lightening that just gives us a little glimpse of the big picture and until the next day we still wallow around in our suffering but it may be His will that we suffer, for some soul or clergy or something in the Church.

Song:  From the Day You were Born - continued

Read or sing words to Song: Sunrise, Sunset

Song:  From the Day You were Born - continued

Messenger: And the ocean goes in and out and sometimes its dark and we can hear it and sometimes its light and we can see it in clear view. But it goes in and out and sometimes it’s very calm and other times it's very, very, very high, almost wild.

Song:  From the Day You were Born - continued

Messenger:  And He’s always there and we are so fortunate because we can get up and put our feet on the ground and say “What is life?” and say that “Life is in Him”. And we can go to the Eucharist and receive Jesus the Son of God inside our breast and drink His Precious Blood. What a gift God gives to us. How can we not pray for our priest and do all that we can to pray for our Church and to help it spread to the far ends of the earth. It is our treasure to have Jesus Christ the Son of God truly present and with us and He gives Himself to us in the Eucharist.

    There are people out there that are so brazen and they take their clothes off and they talk about all kinds of perverted things. And they are on talk shows and they’re arguing back and forth with hard faces.

    And yet we’re afraid to talk about the Eucharist. What is wrong with us? Because when we go to bed tonight the moments of this day are gone forever and the seeds that I did not plant, I can’t come back and plant for this day. All I know is this, God wants that steady growth and union with Him, that love, that is so deep within, that service of giving ourselves, that desire to pray for the world and be more identified with Him whether it be in suffering or in joy, to be united to Him in all that we have.

     The vision that I see now as a grandma; the birth, the childhood, the marriage, the job, the kids, they come and they go like the flow of the ocean.

Read or sing words to Song: Sunrise, Sunset

Messenger:  And it is the words of Jesus that are constant and ever present.

Jesus speaks:  Come to Me in the night and tell Me of your woes and I will comfort your aching heart and assure you of My constant vigilance with you, of a grace that you will know for your children and for your world because of your love for Me and your desire to place your trust wholeheartedly in My Sacred Heart.

Messenger:  And so we pray for our children and we see the evils in the world and the terrible things in the movies and the noises and ahhh just horror...       And in it all we see Christ walking on the water toward us in a brilliant light or see Him as I saw Him transfigured on those days of early January of '96 never ever, ever imagining in my deepest pain after we had been kicked out of the Holy Spirit Center and then sent to all different places to do the Shepherds of Christ meetings that God would give us the beautiful Virgin Mary Building at the end of the year (1996). And from the heel of that place the building shines for the world to see and the (priestly) newsletters and the prayers and all the gifts that They have given to us have helped to lighten the hearts of so many in this world. For He is the Light and it is a vision that we seek, the vision, the over all vision to see it all, the vision of faith, to know the big picture, to know the Father, and the Son and the Holy Spirit at every moment and to be so united to Them and all the saints and the angels in heaven, to see our role here on earth, to see ourselves identified with Christ and yet to live deeply in a world with people at work and in our families and to be the masters of love because Christ lives within us.

End of excerpt from August 13, 2002 Rosary


Today's Mass readings

Revelation 11: 19; 12: 1-6, 10

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.

     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. Then a second sign appeared in the sky: there was a huge red dragon with seven heads and ten horns, and each of the seven heads crowned with a coronet. Its tail swept a third of the stars from the sky and hurled them to the ground, and the dragon stopped in front of the woman as she was at the point of giving birth, so that it could eat the child as soon as it was born. The woman was delivered of a boy, the son who was to rule all the nations with an iron sceptre, and the child was taken straight up to God and to his throne, while the woman escaped into the desert, where God had prepared a place for her to be looked after for twelve hundred and sixty days.

Then I heard a voice shout from heaven, 'Salvation and power and empire forever have been won by our God, and all authority for his Christ,...'

Psalm 45: 10-12,16

Listen, my daughter, attend to my words and hear;
forget your own nation and your ancestral home,
then the king will fall in love with your beauty;
he is your lord, bow down before him.
The daughter of Tyre will court your favour with gifts,
and the richest of peoples

Instead of your ancestors you will have sons;
you will make them rulers over the whole world.


1 Corinthians 15: 20-27

    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.

Luke 1: 39-56

The visitation

Mary set out at that time and went as quickly as she could into the hill country to a town in Judah. She went into Zechariah’s house and greeted Elizabeth. Now it happened that as soon as Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the child leapt in her womb and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. She gave a loud cry and said, ‘Of all women you are the most blessed, and blessed is the fruit of your womb. Why should I be honoured with a visit from the mother of my Lord? Look, the moment your greeting reached my ears, the child in my womb leapt for joy. Yes, blessed is she who believed that the promise made her by the Lord would be fulfilled.’

The Magnificat

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

because he has looked upon
    the humiliation of his servant.

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

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

according to the promise
    he made to our ancestors

of his mercy to Abraham
    and to his descendants for ever.

Mary stayed with her some three months and then went home.

Subject:     Letter for Mr. John Weickert from Bishop_____

Dear Mr. Weickert,

I am in receipt of your letter dated 13.5.2002 which seems to have reached me very late, indeed, just a few days ago.

I would like to say the following:

    1.    I was very said to learn of the death of Fr. Edward Carter. He died 
          in the year 2000 but I had not realized this till I got your letter. I think 
          Fr. Carter was an extraordinary man, doing an extraordinary work. I 
          am so glad that you and others continue this inspiring ministry.

    2.    Over the past few years, I have been the recipient of many 
           kindnesses from your organization which I wish to acknowledge 
           with warm thanks and appreciation.

    3.    I feel sorry that, for various reasons, I can do little to help financially.
          However, if I can offer some masses (about 15) for the intentions 
          for your organization for which stipends may be available at your 
          end and which could be used as a contribution to your finances, I
          would do this with great joy. Please letme know if this helps.

Please convey my warmest good wishes and thanks to all the members of your organization. May Lord continue to use Fr. Carter, in his newfound union with Him to renew the priesthood across the entire world.
