Messenger:        The Votive Mass of the Sacred Heart

                            How many Masses did Father Carter say?
                            Whenever he could he would say the votive
                                Mass of the Sacred Heart.

                            On Eagle's Wings
                                Sing this song, hear the words.




Under God’s protection

You who live in the secret place of Elyon,
spend your nights in the shelter of Shaddai,
saying to Yahweh, ‘My refuge, my fortress,
my God in whom I trust!’

He rescues you from the snare
of the fowler set on destruction;
he covers you with his pinions,
you find shelter under his wings.
His constancy is shield and protection.

You need not fear the terrors of night,
the arrow that flies in the daytime,
the plague that stalks in the darkness,
the scourge that wreaks havoc at high noon.

Though a thousand fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
you yourself will remain unscathed.
You have only to keep your eyes open
to see how the wicked are repaid,
you who say, ‘Yahweh my refuge!’
and make Elyon your fortress.

No disaster can overtake you,
no plague come near your tent;
he has given his angels orders about you
to guard you wherever you go.

They will carry you in their arms
in case you trip over a stone.
You will walk upon wild beast and adder,
you will trample young lions and snakes.

‘Since he clings to me I rescue him,
I raise him high, since he acknowledges my name.
He calls to me and I answer him:
in distress I am at his side,
I rescue him and bring him honour.
I shall satisfy him with long life,
and grant him to see my salvation.’



August 18, 2001 message continues                        

Messenger:        Yesterday the funeral was so powerful.
                            I prayed especially between 12 & 3 as
                                Jesus desires on Friday and at 2:00
                                I went to Mass and the priest said 
                                the Votive Mass of the Sacred Heart.
                                I felt it was a special gift.

                            So many people suffer and God allows this.
                                So much grace can be released from
                                    people offering up their suffering
                                    in union with the Mass.

                            When Father Carter was suffering with cancer
                                we made great strides with the 
                                school rosary program.

                            When someone dies we may suffer so much,
                                but in dealing with this suffering
                                and the new way in which we must
                                live without that person on earth
                                we can advance deeper and deeper into
                                a greater understanding of our life

                            We do not know the day nor the hour. Whether
                                it is a high school boy, a 30 year old 
                                new mother of a child, a man of 45
                                who may appear to be in a certain
                                time of accomplishments in his life,
                                it could be a young boy just about to
                                begin a senior year in high school,
                                it could be a woman 60 years old
                                and having a good life now as it
                                seems, suddenly struck down by
                                some disease, it can be a priest
                                as Father Willig in the prime of his
                                life or Father Carter circulating a Newsletter
                                to 75,000 priests —— and yet God
                                calls them home.

                            So many years spent, was it spent in raising
                                babies, going to work, playing with
                                our children, administering as a priest
                                to God's people and saying Mass?

                            Little girls and little boys, babies, pony tails
                                and tiny ties, growing up and following
                                paths, the years in school making
                                our friends laugh, smiling faces,
                                good food, happy times and time
                                with Jesus and finally it all ends.

                            They walk no more, they talk no more, they
                                leave us and our heart longs for
                                the sound of their voice, the smile
                                we loved, the touch of their hand
                                and the years are gone.

                            So quickly they passed, almost like a wind
                                that blew.

                            Did the person blow good will for men
                                as God wanted?
                            Did they spread the ill will of satan?

                            In one of Fr. Carter's sermons he talked about
                                how so many people just act like this
                                world will go on and on and on.

                            The sound of their laughter, their song, their joy
                                lives in our hearts.

                            We long to recall their strength.
                             We see the priests as he celebrates the Mass long
                                after he is gone.

                            The Eucharist is so powerful.
                            The work of the priest is so important.
                            In the Mass the Lord touches the hearts so deeply
                                in the Mass.
                            In the funeral yesterday, the people left that
                                Church with deep seeds planted in
                                their hearts.
                            I saw it and I know the impact of a young
                                boy dying and the powerful Mass celebrated
                                by Fr. Mike and how it affected me.

                            At the funeral I felt so close to heaven. 
                                I felt so united to heaven and earth there. 

                            Long after I left the funeral that

                                closeness to heaven lingered in my heart.

                            Many received the Eucharist there.
                            We received God.

                            In this funeral we see the casket,
                                we know someone has died
                                but we receive the gift
                                of sharing so deeply in
                                His life at Mass.

                            Such a contrast—we see the dead

                            We celebrate the Eucharistic

                            The Eucharist is given to us

                                through the consecrated
                                hands of the priest.

                            We look down the aisle and

                                see the casket and

                                remember the dead body.

                                   Then we receive such an

                                outpouring of His life

                                in the Eucharist.


                            I cry out to you.

                            Let our hearts be lifted to God, for even though
                                the world buzzes by so quickly    

                                God calls a young man and a priest like
                                   Father Willig in the prime of their life
                                   and it is the end of their life here below.

                                We cannot hear the voice of the deceased    
                                   one more time.

                                We must reach the nursing homes with the
                                   gifts God has given to us.

                                Reach the nursing home with the joy of
                                   suffering and endurance,
                                   offering up all they do to God as
                                   an offering united to the Mass so
                                   grace will be released for our 
                                   beloved priests, the Church and 
                                   the world.

                           You say what are we to do?
                            Jesus has spoken to Fr. Carter when he began 
                                his movement and he called us to be
                                Shepherds of Christ.

                            For six weeks, that's all I heard, feed the
                                hungry. (in 1991 before I received messages)

                            This is a message from Jesus.
                            Many elderly sit around all day, many suffering
                                in so much pain and Jesus speaks
                                please reach My nursing home ones so
                                they will offer up their days as a sacrifice
                                for the priests, the Church and the world.

                            The cold reality of it all can be seen when we
                                gaze at the congregation gathered at the
                                funeral. Look at the church, see the crowd
                                look down the center aisle and in the
                                front you see the casket. The casket of a 
                                boy, of a grandpa, a priest who gave
                                his life saying Masses and writing 18 books
                                for us all to read when he was gone.

                            Let's look at how we get so caught up in so many
                                little details, see how our minds are flooded
                                with so many little negative thoughts that
                                keep us off our focus.

                            And the days pass. How many days did we have?
                            When we are struck with cancer or some disease
                                how we long for days when we felt good and
                                could have enjoyed it all, enjoyed our life,
                                tried to spread love and how many days
                                did we waste being negative and sometimes
                                hurting others?

                            We are on a stage and we are playing our part.
                                We come in as a little baby, when do
                                    we leave?

                            Our lives are a book. A book of pages, days
                                and moments of our lives.
                                Each day so very precious to our everlasting
                                Each day so important to touch others
                                    to use the moments to spread love,
                                    to promote His Kingdom.
                                And we can sit around and waste our
                                    precious life.
                                Or we can realize how precious is each day.

                            Whether a baby eating from the mother's breast
                                or an elderly one sitting and suffering
                                the terrible pain of cancer or some
                                disease, we all have a purpose.
                                Every day is so precious.

                            And our Lord shows us at a funeral how our
                                life here on this earth is not forever.
                                Our life here is so temporary.

                            So much suffering in the world, so much wasted.
                            God allows suffering.
                            God allows the elderly to slow down.
                            Little babies, little children, young adults,
                                middle age, elderlythis is the life
                                cycle of the human person.

                            We see the sun and the sky, the green grass,
                                the beautiful flowers, but do we really
                                reflect on our Creator.

                             He has brought babies into the world. He has
                                allowed people to get old much of the time
                                and to die.

                            Wouldn't it be nice, if we recognized the good things
                                we have been given most of the time. If we
                                told each other from the heart how we love.
                                If we wouldn't give into the little things that
                                are little obstacles and continue to push
                                onward always trying to promote the
                                Kingdom of God, living by the commandments
                                and loving one another, affirming one
                                another and helping one another to
                                do God's will.

                            A church of people, all united in their loss
                                all wanting to remember the years
                                they shared with the deceased, but wanting
                                to move out of the pain and sorrow.

                            The Mass at the funeral, the priest and his homily
                                is so very important and so
                                much a way to touch hearts
                                hurt with pain.

                            We need to pray for our priests. They are so
                                important to help souls on their walk here
                                in life.
                            Our priests are so important to lead the souls
                                into this bridal union with God.

                            This is God's movement.
                            God is telling us what to do.
                            We need to pray for the priests, the Church and
                                the world.

                            Mary has appeared, a messenger from God.
                            God loves the souls of the earth.
                            Jesus came to this earth and gave His life for the
                                precious souls.

                            We are here to love God and love one another.
                            We are not just here for ourselves.
                                We are here to help promote His Kingdom.

                             Our Elderly are important. They are an important
                                part of this plan.

                             Suffering is important to His Plan.
                                He shows us how He suffered

Messenger:        Father Carter died December 18, 2000. On that day seven
                                years before, December 18, 1993, I received a loving message
                                about suffering.

                            I include it here. 



Picture of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

Take Up Your Cross

God's Blue Book I Cover

December 18, 1993

Pain? Oh, how I suffered! The pain was so intense, I could hardly bear it. I was so wounded and so covered with blood. Think of a little gash and how it hurts when it begins to bleed. I bled and I bled all over. Such intense pain. Every time you experience pain, think of Me and how minute your little pain is. There was not a place on My body that was not covered with blood. There were deep wounds all over Me. My head throbbed from the crown they had placed on Me and I was forced to carry a big cross so heavy, I scarce could move it on My shoulder. My shoulder ached so badly I felt as if it was constantly breaking by the weight of the cross. But I carried it and pushed on My way. If I stopped, I was poked and pushed and hit. The crowd jeered and they forced Me on My way. What crime had I committed? Why was I forced to endure such torture? It was out of love of you that I continued that journey. I was God. I could have stopped at any moment. I was obedient to death to the demands of My Father.

    Pain, child? I suffered so much for love of you! This is how I love you at this moment. In all that befalls you you must know at every moment that I know exactly what you are suffering. There is nothing that happens in your life without My consent and it comes from Him Who loves you.

    Take your crosses and truly endure them. Accept them. Know that everything that happens in your life I have allowed. Accept it with the love with which I give it. You are being taught in that pain. You are suffering for yourselves and others. I endured all that pain. Did I once say, "Father, take it away?" I am your model. I showed you the way. I took it all, every last wound, every kick and smack and vileness. I took My cross and I carried it without a word. This is what I ask of you. Know that when you are experiencing pain or suffering, or being taunted by those around you, look to the Master for your course of action. I took it all, every last wound, and accepted it to My death. I did not say, "Oh, how awful." I did not complain. I walked in silence that bumpy road with a heavy cross, with My mother suffering by My side and I never complained. I accepted it all for love of you.

    Carry your crosses, little ones. They are gifts from Me. Do not look for an explanation or a way to get rid of them. I will take them when I think you have had enough. It is in suffering that you experience My life more fully. It is in suffering that I speak to you in a special way. Endure it. I know every ache and pain you are experiencing. I am this close to you! Your pain may save a soul dead in sin or get a soul from purgatory. Accept all I send you and don't complain. A lot of the pain is enhanced by your rejection. A lot of your lessons are lost by your refusal to see that crosses come from Me. I give you crosses to share in My suffering. I love you so much, little ones. Know how personal I am with you: the very hairs of your head are numbered. Come close to Me and look into My eyes. I am truly here with you at every single moment. Think of Me as a person, but I am closer than any person could ever be! I am there and I know your every breath and I care about your every breath. Who could even do this for another? Others would have to sometimes think of themselves.

    I am God and I can think of you at every instant. I am so close to you you do not have any comprehension. It is not a myth. I am truly present to you at every instant. Feel My presence. Make Me alive to you. Experience all I have to give you. You will know Me as your personal Jesus the more you read and re-read these letters. I write them to each of you. Only God could love you each this way. Focus on Me and you and how close I am to you. I love you so, little one. Whence you go you never walk alone. I walked a road of torture that led to My death for love of you! When will you realize what I say is true? When will you know how close I am to you and embrace Me as I so desire? You hold yourself back because you do not focus on My love for you. I would walk that path this day for you. I love you the same this moment as I did then. Oh, little one, you want to put your little crosses down so fast. Hold them and walk awhile with Me down the road to Calvary. Be by My side and share a little in how intently I trod out of love of you.

    I am Jesus, Son of the Living God. I am alive in this room with you. I am by your side. A toothache, you say-what pain! Accept your pain. I want you to feel that pain now. It will go away.* It is so little. Heartache I know, heartache to love each of My children so much and be ignored or put at arm's length! Do you know how it is to love another and not have their love? I long for your love with Me, but you are busy. You do not have the time to be with Me while I await thee. I am an ardent lover Who waits for each of My children to come and experience this great love. You stay away from Me Who is always waiting and you search this barren desert for that which I have to give you. I watch you in this search and want you to come home to My heart. I am waiting for you, little one. Don't keep yourself from Me. Remember how I suffered for love of you. When you feel a pain, remember the pain I suffered for love of you. That is how I love you this very day. Take your cross and walk with Me. Come and be with Me. I have that which your hungry soul craves.

    I am your loving Jesus. I love you, child. You do not know. I wait to be closer to you. You must see Me as this personal and this alive in your life! Oh, sweet one, I love you to My death and I love you this way today. I lament My children lost in darkness. I want to be united to you. Come and make Me the center of your life. I wait for you!

R. *My toothache is gone!

                                    need you to spread the discerned material so
                                    all is the truth.

                            Our days pass so quickly.

                            Let the sun shine upon us.
                                Let our eyes be open 
                                    to see the light.

                            Let our hearts be lifted.

                            When we lay in the casket let them say of us

                                Look at all the seeds they planted and the
                                    good deeds they did!!



Excerpt from Response in Christ by Father Edward Carter, S.J. - Chapter 3

       e) Relationship with Members of the Church
    There is but one true Church of Christ. Yet this one Church has three different states of existence. There is the pilgrim Church, the Church of this world, composed of members who have received the grace of Christ and strive for its development. They have not yet obtained the goal of their efforts, as have the members of the heavenly Church, who enjoy God in eternal happiness. The Church suffering is an intermediate state of existence necessary for those who had not achieved the required purification as members of the pilgrim Church. Although there are these three phases of the Church's existence, there is a profound union existing between all the members. All these members possess the same basic life of grace in Christ, and this common life establishes the most intimate bonds of love. In our preceding chapter, we discussed the pilgrim Church. Let us now consider the Church suffering and the heavenly Church.

   The members of the Church suffering are those who have departed from this life in an incomplete state of Christian development. Their development is incomplete in the sense that grace has not fully taken possession of them, and, as a result, they are yet closed in upon themselves to a greater or lesser degree. They as yet cannot open themselves out in complete love to the Triune God in the beatific vision. They must undergo a further purification, a purification which could have been achieved upon earth with merit. Now the purification must be achieved with no merit attached. The pain of this purification is mixed with the certain expectation of achieving the vision of God. We can hasten the advent of this vision for this people by the offering of prayers and other good works. Scripture itself refers to our action on behalf of those in purgatory in Chapter 12 of the Second Book of Maccabees beginning with verse 38.

   The members of the heavenly Church are those in whom the life of grace has taken full possession and has reached its completion in the life of glory. Faith now is unnecessary, as the light of glory gives the human intellect a new strength and capacity for seeing God face-to-face. While the Christian was a wayfarer, he received the imprint of the indwelling Trinity as he shared in God's own life. Now in heaven that grace-life and possession of God reaches its completion—the absolute completion is not achieved, however, until the resurrection of the body. The divine persons give Themselves to the beatified in a profound union far surpassing that of the indwelling of the Trinity experienced here below.

   This life of heaven is still the Christ-life, for just as we possess a share in Trinitarian life here below as mediated by Christ, and exercise this grace-life as structured by Him, so also in heaven is the mediation of Christ present. In the words of Rahner, "One always sees the Father through Jesus. Just as immediately as this, for the directness of the vision of God is not a denial of the mediatorship of Christ as man."
13 And not only does the humanity of Christ unite the blessed to God, but also, in some way, to the whole of creation. This is merely a completion of what is begun here below, namely, the union with Christ in His humanity establishing the Christian in a special relationship with God, with other men, and with the whole of creation. We have a glimpse, therefore, of the fullness of life which members of the heavenly Church possess.

   The heavenly Church, as St. Thomas says, is the true Church.
14 The Church of this earth and the Church of purgatory are, each in its own way, reaching out in loving hope for the heavenly Jerusalem. Vatican II puts it very simply: "The Church, to which we are called in Christ Jesus, and in which we acquire sanctity through the grace of God, will attain her full perfection only in the glory of heaven."15

   The members of the heavenly Church can help us in living our life of grace until we too share its fullness with them. Their power of intercession on our behalf is but another ramification of the communal aspect of Christianity. We are meant to help others grow in Christ. We, in turn, are intended by God to receive aid from others—yes, from members of the heavenly Church, as well as from those with whom we dwell here below.

   Not only can we be aided by the saints' intercession, but the example of the canonized saints can also be of great value to us. They have concretely proved that full holiness is possible. Such an inspiration is of real worth when we are tempted to think that Christian sanctity in its higher degrees is impossible of attainment. Moreover, the canonized saints, in their diversity, teach us that there are many authentic versions of Christian holiness. They can be innovators in showing us that there are numerous possibilities in assimilating the mystery of Christ, although the basic assimilation remains the same for all Christians of all times. In the opinion of Rahner this is one of the chief roles the canonized saints exert in the life of the Church.

Messenger:        Let our sorrow be turned
                                into joy.
                            God is with us 




August 18, 2001 message continues

Messenger:        If I can understand how deeply I love,
                                I can understand more
                                fully how God truly wants us to love
                                all the saints.

                            Why does God give special favors through the
                                saints? He wants us to love them. He may 
                                give special favors when we pray to 
                                St. Anthony. He wants us to love and
                                honor the saints.

                            I love the scriptures. I am fed by them. My
                                heart burns to talk about His Word.
                                I love St. John so much. I feel I knew
                                him and am very closely connected
                                to him. I love St. Paul and St. Peter
                                deeply. I feel so close to St. Paul through
                                the writings he wrote. I feel so close to
                                St. Peter, Jesus picked him to be the first
                                I love him deeply, I know him through
                                the scriptures, he is a friend to me,
                                I love him deeply.
                                I love St. Ignatius, on his feast and the
                                feast of St. Xavier I would go into ecstasies. 
                                I know very well their feast days, but in the
                                beginning even if I was unaware of the
                                feast on certain feast days the Lord
                                would give me special graces and I would
                                go into ecstasy.

                            I love St. Margaret Mary and St. Claude de Columbiere
                                and St. Francis and St. Clare, I love saint
                                Matthew so much and St. Mark and am
                                so fond of St. Luke. Through his gospel
                                and meditating on the mysteries of the
                                rosary my love grows ever deeper for
                                St. Luke.

                            I love the scripture that deals with the
                                special feasts and the liturgical
                            I love the lectionary and the readings at
                            What a gift our God has given to us.

                            I see how God really wants us to be united
                                to the Saints and know them as persons.
                                I named my son and my daughter after
                                special saints and I feel very very close to
                                those saints.
                                     I love St. Rita and St. Theresa, St. Edward,
                                    St. Michael, I deeply love them.
                                I want to love St. Joseph more and more,
                                    our God chose him to be the
                                    foster father of Jesus.

                            I see all the saints in heaven, all the popes
                                and priests, and know how many there
                                are and how deeply they are united to
                                us in the Mass.

Messenger:        Here is a picture of my mother she died
                                when I was five, I have a wonderful
                                step-mother, who helped me
                                grow closer and closer to Jesus through
                                her example and the way she was,
                                but my dad taught me so much
                                and so did my mother.

                            I know that they live.
                            At times I hear Father Carter say to me
                                "Rita, I'm alive."
                            I know how real heaven is.

                            I know God the Father, God the Son and
                                God the Holy Spirit as Divine Persons.
                                I know Them intimately, I love Them
                                deeply. They are so real to me.
                                I can connect with Them so deeply
                                in my heart. I know They dwell
                                in me. I am in the state of grace.

                            I want to be always in the state of grace.
                            I want to love and serve Our Beloved
                                God and I want to be so united
                                to the Saints.

                            I know Mary as my spiritual Mother
                                and I know her as a person,

                                but there is a depth of union in
                                my heart I feel to the saints.

                            They were once human persons that
                                walked the earth and grew
                                and lived on the earth.
                            They are in heaven and they love us.
                            They want the world to be as God

                            We can pray through their powerful
                             intercession to help us.

                            God wants us to have relationships
                                with the saints and angels.

                            God wants us to love the saints and
                                angels deeply.

                             God wants us united to them in
                                praying for the priests, the
                                Church and the world.

                            We are in a state of becoming here

                            Hopefully we are becoming more like
                                Jesus, more like God wants
                                us to be.

                            The Church and the world is in a
                                state of becoming.

                             We all need to be so connected as
                                one happy family enjoying God's 
                                gifts to us and praying for
                                the priests, the Church and
                                the world.

                             God wants us to honor and adore
                                Him, to respect Him, to
                                love Him.

                             Oh the glory God has for those
                                who love and serve the Lord.

                            Oh God, Our God help us.

                            We love You so.

                            Please we beg for mercy for the souls of the
                                earth and we beg for grace that
                                You outpour Your grace on 
                                us so we all do Your holy will.

                            Please give us the funds to reach the
                                world with Your message and
                                the message of Our Lady.

                            We love You so much.
