Mary speaks: My children, I love you, help me reach my children.

Messenger: Today is August 19, 2000. On August 19, 1917, Our Lady appeared at Fatima, 83 years ago.


Excerpt from The Spirituality of Fatima and Medjugorje

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

10.  Excerpt from the rosary of August 19, 1997

Excerpt from the rosary of August 19, 1997

Jesus:  Come away with Me, My young ones. Come into the field and taste of the beauty of the air and the beauty of this day with the most beautiful flowers that I have created for you. Do you see the beauty in each petal of the flower, or are your eyes covered with mud that you do not see? I have lifted the veil for you today and I have showed you My way. My way is the way of trust and faith and I told you in the message on Sunday that you must have faith and endurance, for I took you to the darkest night to the pointiest tunnel, to the place where you thought that you would never return and at that point I opened up through a little hole the light of day and it came streaming in and you perceived and you felt My presence, which is greater than all the things of this earth.

    Wipe the grin off your face you silly earth, for you have ran after so many foolish things, when I stood there adorned in white before you, in the most glorious robes and you did not perceive that the Almighty God was alive and so I have called and I have told you and I have allowed you, My shepherds, to suffer, but the days ahead will be days of great victory, for I come to you clothed in white and adorned in a gold veil and you see that God lives and you will carry the white flag across this earth. You My shepherds, have won and the victory is yours.

    Did you fall in the mud and did you skin your knees, did you feel your head ache as Mine ached in the garden, did you feel the thorns poke deeply into your skull, and did you feel the ripping of your flesh as the sword went into your skin?

    I am Jesus, I am God, I will not be undone. I am Almighty and all powerful to the ends of the earth. You will know My might and you will not be afraid, but you will not know this if you do not trust, for I have told you the secrets in My messages, but you do not read as if you believe, you read half heartedly. You must believe with all your heart that I speak to you to be heard, for you truly are the shepherds that will go across this earth and carry the white flag, but you do not have this conviction within your heart, so therefore you do not do all that I have asked you to do, your belief is wishy-washy and you do not believe with a conviction of a strong heart.

    I am calling you My shepherds this night to renew your faith and your endurance to realize that I am God and I have spoken here to you this evening. I am alive, I am alive, I am alive and I am with you, I am your God.

    You wanted the light all the time and the light was not in the plan of the Father. It comes in light and it comes in darkness, it comes in death and it comes in victory, it comes in death and it comes in Resurrection, it comes in pain, and it comes in joy, but this world tells you today to look for only the joy and when you do not find it to do everything that you can to fill your selfish pleasurish whims that you have within you.

    I tell you that you must fall to your knees, that your knees will be scuffed and that you will suffer and your flesh will be torn and your head will be crowned with thorns, but you will come forth from the tomb with a veil of white across your face and you will say this is the victory that we have won because we have lived in Him.

Jesus: Your Movement will spread forth to the far ends of the earth, but it is faith that I am calling you to My beloved ones, you must have faith in your hearts, for this is a sign that I give to you this day. If you do not believe, you will not be able to continue ahead, for you must move ahead in faith. It is the only way that you must operate. You cannot operate trying to logically think your way across this world. It is only in believing and obeying the messages that the job will get done. It is My might that will lead this Movement to the far corners of the earth. Open your pockets and let us see your money. Do you have the money to do the things that I have asked you to do? It is in prayer, hourly prayer and begging for the funds, realizing that it is in your prayer, that it is in your endurance, that it is in your faith and your sacrifices that your prayers will be answered. You must pray hourly the Novena to the Infant of Prague and I will answer your prayers, and you My beloved ones will know the results when you pray.

Song: This is Holy Ground

Jesus: I have given to you the greatest gift this day. I am Jesus, and I have come to you and I have asked you to open wide your heart and to thank Me for the gift I have given, for if the answer would have been different how would your hearts be this night, and how was it with the lepers, when I gave to them the great gift and they did not come and say thanks, but you are My holy ones that I am sending into this world and your hearts must be filled with joy. I have asked you over and over again to sing to Me with a heart that is filled with joy. I have given to you songs that I wrote Myself for you to sing of the love of My Heart. I am Jesus, the Son of God and you are the apostles of this new era. As you go out into the dark night the light will shine behind you and many will know the light of My Heart. Do not be discouraged, for the very hairs of your head are numbered and I am with you at this very moment, guarding and watching you, give Me your heart My shepherds. I have given to you a great gift this day, give Me your thanks and continue to pray. It is through prayer that you will accomplish all that the Father intends you to accomplish.

    I am Jesus, the Son of God. I have chosen you, I have called you and you will accomplish the work that the Father intends you to through prayer. Do not be discouraged, but encouraged for I am God and I am with you. Think of how it was before, when you did not share your love with so many others, but I have given you each other and I have bound your hearts in one heart and you come here because your hearts are filled with great joy. The more you love and the more the Movement spreads, the more will be the blessings, for as the love expounds and gets larger, the love is more full, for your love is rooted in Me and the more you love deeply the more full the love you will have. This is how it will be, one body in Me, and you will love many and you will know them deeply in your heart and your heart is full My shepherds, because I have taught you My ways of love and given you each other. You are My holy family and I love you. I have called you and so you say “why me?”, and I say to you “why this Saint, or that Saint or why the Blessed Mother, why were you called?”. You were called because I love you and I have given to you a great grace to be My shepherd in the Shepherds of Christ Movement.

August 13, 2008 Rosary

transcribed from a live tape

Glorious Mysteries

 

Mary says I appear to you as Our Lady of Fatima in the Americas, for it is vital that you understand that the work that you do in the Shepherds of Christ, can help to lead so many souls to my Immaculate Heart and the Heart of my Son Jesus. In answering the call that We have given to you from Our Hearts, you're answering the call that will help bring peace to this world — to a world that is troubled and in pain, to a world that has disobeyed the will of the Father — and looked in the other direction, when clearly I have spoken over and over again in the century to tell the people that they must listen to the words that I bring as the Queen of Peace for this world.

    But to you my precious ones, it is far more than you will understand, the work that you are doing, for the world has changed because of your efforts. Do not abandon the mission ever, for I have given to you great gifts in my words, that you will do the work, and that you will touch the souls, that so many of my little ones would not be lost forever. Do not turn from me.

    I appear here to you, that you will know, that I speak to you this day, the same as I did over 14 years ago, asking you to begin this mission, to help to bring to completion, my mission that I began at Fatima. So many people have been touched through your efforts, and yet it is always a struggle, for the evil one does not want you to continue, in the process of spreading the consecration to Our Hearts, and the rosary in leading people to the Eucharist and to the Word, that fills them with such love for God. I am Mary your Mother, Mother of Jesus.

    Jesus rose on the third day and today He outpours His life to you, my precious ones. He gives to you the grace to answer the call. He has called you to spread the rosaries to the schools, to do it faithfully, and to know that you have affected the lives of children in these 14 years tremendously. Do not abandon the mission ever, for satan wants to stop you, and yet you must be strong, and pray for the grace that God is giving to you on these 13ths and the 5ths, that lead you more and more, to help in this completion of my mission. There will be an era of peace in which the Sacred Heart of Jesus will reign, and my Immaculate Heart will reign in many hearts. Do not look at the troubled world, but look to the burning Heart of love of my Son Jesus.

Resurrection of Jesus from the Tomb

1. Jesus: I come to you that you will have life abundantly, that you will know that I fill you with My love, and that I outpour My grace and you are transformed more and more, into children of light, into giving to the world the love that comes from My Heart of love. You are My instruments that I will send into the darkness, to shine as the light, to those that are afraid and bowed down. You must say yes to the call that I have given to you, for you are the Shepherds of Christ.

2. Sing: Jesus the light of the World

R. And He came forth on the third day from the tomb. Jesus filled with glorious light in glorified wounds. Who are we that we do not recognize the might of God, for He is with us this day. He is truly present and in this church and He appears to tell us this.

Jesus: My beloved ones, I fill you with My precious grace that you will be empowered, and not afraid to answer the call, for there are so many this very day that will lose their souls. But if you say no, who will I call — My soldiers of My Sacred Heart. It is in your love for God and for others, that you will answer the call and go into the world, to feed the hungry souls, to tell them of My love for them.

3. R. And I saw the night as black as black could be. And yet in the morning the sun came across the sky with its glistening light and I saw more and more the miracle in the face of God. The gift that God has given to us, that He is light, and it is in our believing, that we will have the courage to do what He asks us to do, that we will not be consumed with fear, that we will trust in Him, that we will be so one with Him, as the bridegroom of our soul, that we adore Him and love Him, and make Him the King and Center of our lives, always knowing that presence of the Almighty God within us — His light shining within us — Trusting in Him and not fearing, because perfect love cast out fear.

4. Jesus: I am the light of the world and I am with you this day, and I have called you to My Heart, that you will know the fire as it burns for love of My precious souls, that I gave My life for, for it is death and resurrection. The more that you will believe, the more that you will be empowered to do what I have asked you to do. Believe and know My love. Come to Me before the Blessed Sacrament that I will fill you with My precious grace, and that you will proceed as fearless soldiers into the darkness, knowing that confidence within you, that I am always with you, being faithful to the mission. I love you, I love you, I love you. Do not be afraid.

5. R. I am not afraid for I have felt the hand of God, come in so many ways in our lives in these 14 years, come to strengthen us, come to lead us, come to direct us, come to send the message of Our Lady of Fatima to the far ends of the earth, as Jesus and Mary said They would do 14 years ago. As I sat on the chair at the old seminary, to watch the mystery of the Plan of the Father unfold around us, despite our imperfections and the things that we may have encountered, God did His work in using us as His instruments.

6. Jesus: And I say to you to believe, believe that you will not be put to shame, that you will not proceed — Fear — fear in your hearts? Why do you have fear, when I have given to you so many gifts and signs, and told you of My love, when you have sat back, one foot on and one foot off. I want both feet off the ground. Isn't it time that you heard the message of January the 18th of 1994? Read it again and look at all that you were able to accomplish because of My Might. And your fearful "yes-sss" that you gaaaaa-ve — and still you proceeded ahead, you worked hard, but the peace could have been so much greater in your heart, and the intimacy that I wanted to share with you, as you put one foot on and took one foot off, as you straddled the fence, as you said "O.K. Lord." And then you held back like a rubber band — Can I go back and feel the security?

    What is faith My child — faith is believing. I gave to you the image in Clearwater. How was your faith? How was your faith today after the millions of newsletters that I have circulated through your hands? How is your faith today — in the building that God the Father gave to this earth, as a sign of the covenant, that God made with His people long ago, not to destroy the earth by a flood. Mary is the gift that God the Father gives. Go to her Immaculate Heart. She will lead you to the intimacy of My Sacred Heart, and you will not be afraid, for the Holy Spirit will tell you His truth, and you will believe, because you let go. Let go! Both feet off the ground. Give yourself the peace you deserve.

7. Jesus: And so you say "Well, I have spread some Blue Books. I believe that Jesus is truly present in the Blessed Sacrament." But it's a drop in the bucket, My child, for all the people that are waiting, that are longing, that are searching for My love, to know the truth that I am truly present in the Blessed Sacrament, to know the great gift of the Catholic Church, to know the truth about the sacrament of baptism. So is that what happens — people go to church on Sunday, and they think about their family and they walk out, and the rest of the week they wouldn't dare mention the Catholic faith, for they can say (which is not right, for it is relativism) "for he should go his way and it's his truth" — "and he should go his way and it's his truth".

    But do you remember Paul? He was talking to you after you went to church on Sunday, and he was really questioning some things, because he was searching, and you could have given him a Blue Book, or you could have told him more about the Catholic faith, but you said to yourself "Oh but I don't want to step on his toes." You weren't stepping on his toes at all, he was asking you questions about your faith. You went behind the bush, you stood there and Paul talked to the bush. You waved a little flag and said "Oh I don't want to step on your toes, Paul." And Paul even asked you about the Eucharist. But you said, "Oh, I should respect what he thinks." But he was asking you!

    Is that proceeding as a fearless soldiers when I sent them to you — when he was searching, when he was longing, when he was thirsting, when he was hungering to know about the Eucharist and My love? And as soon as he started to ask —  guess what you did — you went behind a big, round, green bush and said "Oh, yes Paul, the Catholic Church is real nice." And that's all you said! The next time I send someone to you, can you come out in front of the bush and say, "Oh Paul, I go to Mass every day and I love it so much. It's everything to me, to go to Mass and to receive the Blessed Sacrament. I live for the Mass, Paul. Would you like to go with me? Here's a book about the Eucharist. Jesus is truly present in the Eucharist."

    And what about Mary. Mary is your neighbor. She use to be a Catholic. She said she really liked to go to Mass, but she hasn't been to Mass for years. So you said, "Well, I go to Mass every day and I really like going to Mass." And she says "I really liked to go to Mass when I used to go. I do miss that." And then you left it drop, like a bowling ball on your foot — you just left it drop! That's Mary's life. She's right there. She's your neighbor. She's talking to you. Where did you ever get this idea in your mind, that you should be so shy?

    I have given to you the greatest gifts in giving you Myself truly present in the Eucharist. Shout it from the rooftop! Why do you not tell the people, that are hungry, that I send to you? I have given to you the Virgin Mary building, that from that place, you would tell the people of the great gift of the Catholic Church, that you would encourage those who come there, to pray for the priests, the Church and the world, that you would give to them the Blue Books, and the children the coloring books on the rosaries, that you would give to them the rosary.

    "Here let me tell you about the rosary. It is so cool. Well, you know how you celebrate Christmas — well Jesus loves us so much, and that's really celebrating Jesus being born. It's His birthday on Christmas. And we say the Hail Marys and we think about that, it gives us so much peace because Jesus is God, and He loves us so much, that He came to this earth, and He was born out of love for us, and He loved us so much that He died for us. I know you don't understand this right now, but I would like to give you this coloring book about the rosary."

    So many times in your hearts, there's that idea, "Oh I don't want to step on their toes", and they're asking you the very question that is the open door, and you're the one that closes it.

    In baptism, My precious ones were given such gifts, and commissioned to spread the good news. I have given to you tremendous gifts in this Movement. You should thank Me for the gifts given. How would you like that, if your friend made you a birthday cake, gave it to you and you said, "Oh, I don't like the color of that icing. It could have been better, you know the consistency of it." I mixed My letters of love. I hand delivered them to you. I called you to My Heart. I gave to you My precious Movement, to help to spread the devotion to My Heart, and the love of the Heart of My Mother.

    Be thankful for the gifts that you have been given. Be thankful for the grace that you have been given to love your God and to love others. Do not give into the negativity, the grumbling — like they did in the desert — they grumbled and grumbled and grumbled. Death/resurrection — in the suffering you will be brought to greater life. But you must seek and search and want — and more than anything, love Me with the deepest love — in that lies your peace.

8. Sing: One little light in the darkness, and then there were two and were three. Three little lights in the darkness, and then there were four and were more. What did you see in the darkness but a light streaming right to you.

Jesus: Let go! Your life must be lived in greater love with Me. As the world goes more and more into this tension — into the time of disobedience, satan is working in this unrest and disorder. But your strength is found in Me. Make the Blue Book your constant companion, for it is in a few words, many times, you will see through My eyes, and the world that is tainted. And satan is working to blind you, to get you to see through the tainted eyes, to block that vision of the Father's Plan. I am with you at every moment, I am with you. I am calling you and I want oneness with you, that you will be My light in the darkness in this world.

    But the more that there is more tension and fighting in a world at war and rebellion, the more that is felt in the community, in the nation, in the people at church, in the stores, on the streets. Your world reflects a troubled world and you are in the midst of it. Your strength will be found in My Heart, and the Heart of My Mother. In the calling that I have given to you to spread this to a world at war — a world of disorder, a world of discomfort, a world of ignoring the laws of God, a world of disobedience to the commandments and there you are — the light, the pillar of strength in your very being, because it is that time you spend with Me, the oneness with Me all day in your heart, the realization that you are united to the Masses going on around the world.

R. And He is appearing — He's so beautiful.

9. Jesus: Why are you afraid? Because the fear that you have in your heart, is the very reason why you do not love so freely, giving into the negative thoughts of the things that will never happen. That is satan's way to block you from doing the things that you can make happen — being the light in the marketplace, smiling and knowing that I want to be one in you, and that, in that lies your strength. Read the message January 18, 1994. Come out of your tombs. Come out of your tombs! Live the life of resurrection with My life alive in you. My precious one, you are indeedly precious to Me. Let go! Let go! Let go.

10. Sing: One little light in the darkness, then there were two, then there were three. One little light in the darkness.

Jesus: Do you see the light? I do. I see the light, in the darkness, in your face, in your eyes, in your heart, in your yes. I love you so deeply. I have called you to My Movement, that you would live more the life of consecration to My Heart and to My Mother's heart, that I would outpour My grace to you more and more, as you come before the tabernacle, and you know how I long and wait for you to come. You are indeedly precious to Me. You are unique. You are My precious soul.

 

Sing: Jesus the Light of the World

Jesus: I appear to you in magnificent light, that you will tell them — tell them Rita, that I am with them, and I will walk with them where they go, but they must have greater faith. Pray for that faith and come to Me in daily Mass, before the Blessed Sacrament. Pray for the priests, the Church and the world and for this mission.  Glory Be

 

The Ascension of Our Lord

1. Jesus: Satan comes to spread his division and his darkness, and if you could see your own graced, baptized soul — oh precious one, you are a beauty.

2. Jesus: And I will bring to completion a great work begun in you, but you must believe. You must proceed ahead, as strong soldiers, knowing it is by My Might that you operate. I am Jesus, Savior of the World.

3. Song: A Song from Jesus

4. Hail Mary

5. R. And He took His Apostles up the mountain, and He was transfigured before their faces. Do you believe? Do you believe how bright the light is of the Divine Almighty God, that we would hide our eyes, for it is blinding and we could not see. And yet because we cannot see, and so many of His truths are veiled, God in His loving goodness wants to give to us deeper insight into His Divine Mysteries. And yet we are focused on the little details, the things of the gutter, the height of the grass in our yards, the leaves that are just annoying, not that those things might not be important, but if we had the same energy for the finer things, for the light that He pours into our hearts.

    If we listen to the words that He is speaking to us now, if we read the Blue Books, if we read the Mass Book and the Apostles Manual, if we see for all these years how He has been talking to us, and even bringing Mary's image for 7 1/2 years to Clearwater — if we open up our eyes and we pray for the grace, from the Holy Spirit for us to see and to believe, to think positively about what we can do to spread the consecration, rather than all the negativity of a million different things that satan can tempt us in our minds to think of -- that might happen — that will probably never happen —

    But will tie us up like — did you ever see a guy in some of those old cowboy movies, tied from head to toe — have you had that run away thinking from satan sometimes — 3am waking up — remember the old cowboy movies, where the guy was tied from head to toe — what about the things that you were seeing there — were they really that bad? Did they really happen? That's the time to get the Blue Book out, that's the time to pray the rosary to realize that Mary gave us the rosary to discipline our thoughts, to help us to grow more and more in the life of resurrection, to let go of some of those distractions and really meditate on the mysteries, and let the Holy Spirit work so that we will see in more truth.

    We don't want to be a sitting duck in a world right now, that is filled right now with water, slushing around, to here and there, from side to side, not really moving up or down stream, just blubbering — God's way is steadfast, direct and without error. He has proved to us from the beginning of the Shepherds of Christ Movement, from the time the first newsletter went out, in July of 1994 to this time, July of 2008, that He proceeded ahead with more than 6,000,000 newsletters. Did you do that? After the newsletter was out there for 2 1/2 years, did we go down and paint Mary's image on the building, after we went from place to place trying to do the Shepherds of Christ, which united us more, but where was home, we said — where is home?

    Mary said "Well, I want to appear to you." It's not because men say — "out of here my child." She says "I want to tell the world my message of Fatima." Look and see, and people would look, and they'd say, "Ah that's Mary and then they'd put their hands over their eyes, and say "Oh, but I don't want to change." How many did that? To those who answered the call, they have been blessed richly.

6. R. How many pieces of sand can you put in a thimble? Would you like to count them? Can we ever count what we do when we spread one rosary or one newsletter to a cardinal in the Vatican? How many pieces of sand can you put in that thimble? Can you count them?

7. But satan will come and say, "huh sst sst sst huh - did you think of this — sst sst sst sst- did you think of that — sst sst sst sst?

And Jesus says: Think about what you can do to help to bring to completion the mission that I began through Fr. Carter and Mary began at Fatima, for I am magnifying your efforts, and your prayers are vital to this mission. Your lives living in greater holiness. You days spent centered around the Mass and the Morning Offering. You are My soldiers of light. Say yes to the calling. Yes, to being a soldier of light.

R. And they will march across the earth, and soon, very soon, the light will steal across the sky. Do you want to be part of that? It takes one thing — commitment to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, of Hearts of great light.

8. Song: A Song from Jesus

9. Jesus: There are more and more pressures in the world, and more and more negative ways to go. The ways get more evil. And yet you must see yourself as a soldier of light. Your prayer life vital, your love for the souls that I gave My life for. For I looked out from the cross and I saw you this day, praying before My Blessed Sacrament, loving Me deeply and loving the souls of the earth.

10. Jesus: I am Jesus, the Savior of the World. If you are one with Me, you are concerned with the salvation of souls. It's in your heart, it's in everything that you think. "Oh God, how I want the souls to go to heaven. How I want the people of the earth to live holy lives, that they will go to heaven." This is your every thought. I am Jesus, Savior of the World. I came to this earth, a little baby, in the womb of Mary. And I died on the cross for My precious souls.

    If you say you love Me, and you do not think about your brothers or their salvation or pray for them, or pray for the priests, the Church and the world — are you thinking only of your own salvation or that of your family. I died for all My precious souls. Consumed with love, I mounted the cross, I shed My blood and I died. As you meditate on this mystery, meditate on the Apostles in the field, they were filled with fear and they saw as I ascended into heaven.

    Pray to the Holy Spirit to come to you so that you too, will be transformed from fear to fearlessness, and that you will know the truth, that He will impart to you. For the more you know the truth, the more you will proceed steadfastly ahead. You cannot know the truth, the truth of how souls are dropping into hell like rain, and close your eyes and focus on your own chair.

    It is in identifying more and more with me, that your lives will be lived for the salvation of souls. I loved My precious souls, that I shed the last drop of My blood, and gave the last beat of My Heart. As I hung on the cross, I looked from the cross and I saw you here today, loving those souls I died for. In this age, in this 2008, you said, "God has Me on this earth today, to do the work, to help the souls to go to heaven. He called me by name and He saw me, the soldier of light, alive today, loving Him more and being led by His hand, both feet off the ground."

                  

The Descent of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles and the Virgin Mary

1. Sing: Veni, Sancte Spiritus

R. Come Holy Spirit, fill our hearts, so that we are fearless soldiers, soldiers of light, that we live more and more our consecration in the Immaculate Heart of Our Mother and the Sacred Heart of Jesus, that our hearts will be transformed more and more into greater holiness, that we can say with Mary — my soul doth magnify the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior.

2. Sing: Veni, Sancte Spiritus

R. Come Holy Spirit, Come! Transform us more and more into the soldiers of light in the Shepherds of Christ Movement, that we will be compelled to go out, to spread the consecration, to pray fervently the prayers for the newsletter and spread the Prayer Chapters, the Blue Books, so that people that are hungry will know, that God loves them as He says in those messages, and longs for them to come to the Blessed Sacrament, that people will use the Blue Books so that they will see through the eyes of God, and not give in to the worry and the tainted vision, as the world goes more and more in its rebellious ways, a war, a world at war. God has given us this Movement to be a light to help to spread the Fatima mission and given us that building for 10 years, that is the miracle. That to me, is the sign.

3. And Mary says: You just do not know, how my Son Jesus loves the precious souls so. In all of your efforts to do this work, to answer the call as the Shepherds of Christ, you have pleased Him. You've given to Him great satisfaction, for His Heart is consumed with love, for the souls He died for, and they are hungering and suffering. Many people searching that do not even know the Catholic faith, and you think that it's being shy. The door is open wide before you and you say, "Oh I cannot step on their toes." They ask the question and you are afraid, but it is their soul that is at stake. God has called you to be the apostle of His Sacred Heart, to spread these writings and this movement to the world.

    Pray in this mystery of the rosary to the Holy Spirit that you will be fearless soldiers of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, that you will be open to grow in greater holiness. Let go of the bitterness, the negative thoughts, the anger from the past. Don't give into the pride and the envy, work heads together, loving in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. I am Mary your Mother. I give to you this message of love. Say — "Come Holy Spirit, fill my heart with the fire of God's love." Mean it with all of your heart. Let go! Both feet off the ground! What are you holding on for? Many are afraid to love. They do not want to trust, because they think they may get hurt, here or there.

    Look at Jesus on the cross. Look at the wounds that He endured for the precious souls that He came to save, and you in this time, this day, how have you answered the call — in your prayer life, in your love and praying for them, in being open to the Holy Spirit, in spreading a Blue Book when you know that the person is open or a Mass Book, telling the children about the rosary, the rosary ministry that is so vital to the school children. It is no little matter. It is the message that I gave on October 13th of 1917. You must pray the rosary. Help me my precious ones. I appear that you will hear the words of your Mother as I speak to you, and you will know that it is of no little matter, for I am Mary, your Mother and Mother of God.

4. Sing: Veni, Sancte Spiritus

R. Come Holy Spirit, Come!

5. Sing: Come Holy Ghost

R. And we pray for the world. We still are going to say a rosary where we spread the Blood of Jesus on every state. It will not take long, but it is so important. We have done it for 4 days, spreading the Blood of Jesus, consecrating the hearts, casting the devil out, and praying for a special outpouring of the Holy Spirit, of every state in the United States. And when we did that rosary every day, I saw Mary and she smiled. I have not seen her today as I did those days when we prayed the rosary. I have seen her today filled with light, the most gentle face, but as I speak, she smiles, for she wants this rosary to be prayed for our beloved country, from this church in China.

    God has given to us great blessing in having the Eucharist here for 11 years. It is a place of light and a place of holiness, and a place where Jesus has chosen to be loved greatly by us. There's been great gifts from this church in China, all the gifts that we have received in the Shepherds of Christ. Let us thank God. Let us be proud to say that we are members of the Shepherds of Christ. This is our family. This is our calling. This is a gift that God has given that has touched our hearts, and our families and our lives, that has given us strength.

    I have watched people that have died, who have been fervent members of the Shepherds of Christ, go through their death, suffering terrific diseases, with strength, in love and deeper commitment to Jesus than ever before. God has blessed us. He has lifted the veil and He has taught us about Himself. I remember Fr. Carter saying at Morrow "IT'S PAYBACK TIME". What that means to me today, is it's gratitude time. It's time to say "God I'm going to let go and I'm going to thank You. I'm not going to give into the negative thinking. I am going to think about what we can do, in helping to affect the souls of the earth, by spreading the consecration, by praying more deeply, by controlling my own negative worry thoughts — bags of worries."

    We could have a little bag coming out of our head that says "Well, here's the worries from August 12th." And on the other side we could have half a halo if we would have just thought about how God has blessed us so much. (She's appearing while I am talking.) She is appearing because she wants you to know on this August 13th, that in 1917 they jailed the children. But she is appearing to us today because we are major in helping to bring to completion the mission that she began at Fatima. Hear the words that Jesus speaks and Mary speaks, for they are words that will lead us to peace and light, love of God and love of others, which is the greatest commandment of all.

He (Jesus) says: Feed the hungry, feed the hungry. For they are starving and they are falling down to the ground. You hold My letters of love that I have asked you to spread to them, for they will know more My love and they will be satisfied.

R. (She is so beautiful. I love it when she appears. She's just so beautiful — filled with light and filled with love for us.) We have answered the call, but it is the disposition of our hearts that we can fine tune — fine tune to be souls of light, filled with gratitude, opening that door to let God fill us more and more with the joy of the Holy Spirit, with a joy of really realizing how terrific it is that we know that Jesus is the Savior of the World. And He has called us and allowed us to affect so many souls.

    One cardinal — you think of that — one cardinal — and how we have done this month after month after month, with correspondence coming backing, thanking us for our prayers for them. We pray for all the cardinals, the pope, the archbishops, the bishops — all prayers that we pray this day are for the priests, and the renewal of the Church and the world, and we give ourselves to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. We pray to the Father united to the Masses going on around the world, united to Jesus in the Holy Spirit, with all the angels and saints, for all of our needs, for our own holiness, for our answering the commitment that God has given to us, and in thanksgiving for the apparitions of Mary and for Jesus here today.

6. Hail Mary

7. Sing: Veni, Sancte Spiritus

R. Strength in one mind and one heart, in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, united to all the Masses going on around the world, the Mass — the sacrifice of Calvary sacramentally made present — which we are reminded of always through the mural in this church, and the Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart. Dear God, we love You. Thank You.

Sing: Veni, Sancte Spiritus

8. Hail Mary

9. Hail Mary

10. Hail Mary

   

The Assumption of Our Lady into Heaven

1. R. And we can think about this — the special Feast of the Assumption, and how 2 years ago we started sending that newsletter out, and we sent well over 2,000,000, just like that, like cookies — baking in the oven, they just kept going out. Today, we have established a deep correspondence with the hierarchy in the Church, that have written back to us month after month, that appreciates all of our work and our prayers in the Shepherds of Christ. And today, we pray for all of those newsletters that we sent out just the past two years, since August the 15th of 2006, and the 100,000 books of Fr. Pasquini that we sent out, and many of Fr. Carters. We pray for those and the grace will be outpoured to help renew the Church and the world, as God applies all of His Might to this mission, that He has given to us.

2. And Mary says celebrate this special feast, for it is very important to me that you are connected in one mind and one heart, in recognizing how you have been called by me and by My Son Jesus, to help in the completion of the Fatima mission and the renewal of the Church and the world.

3. R. With all of our hearts, and our souls, in one mind and one heart, consecrated to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, casting the devil far away, asking for a special outpouring of the Holy Spirit, and asking that the Blood of Jesus is spread on us, we unite in this mission and we pray deeply together.

4. And Jesus says Believe!

5. And Mary says Believe!

6. And Mary says The Holy Spirit will fill you with the fire of God's love, and you will be fearless soldiers preceding into the world in spreading the consecration to the far ends of the earth. Believe and pray united — one mind, one heart, in great love in union with the Mass.

7. R. Father, in the name of Jesus in union with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, in the Holy Spirit with all the angels and saints and the souls in purgatory, in the Hearts - the pure and holy Hearts of Jesus and Mary, we pray for the priests, the Church and the world, and that this world will know peace, as You will, Father, because we believe in Our Lady's promise at Fatima and the message that Jesus gave to Fr. Carter. Help us oh Father, help us and hear our prayers united.

8. R. We pray for the children in the schools and for the young adults in the colleges. We pray for all of them with all of our hearts, that there will be holiness in their hearts, and that they will not give into the evils of the world. We pray through the intercession of Pope John Paul II and Father Carter and Our Lady of Clearwater. We pray for our youth.

9. R. And we consecration the youth of the world, in college all the way down to the little babies, to the Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart, in as far as we are able, and we ask St. Michael that you will protect them, against the devil, so that he cannot move in those instruments that are out there, that are confusing them and leading them to evils, that could affect their souls. Help us please dear God.

10. R. We pray for the abortions especially in this country, that they will stop. We pray through the intercession of Our Lady of Clearwater and Our Lady of Fatima in the Americas that appeared to me here, we pray.

   

Sing: Hail Holy Queen

The Crowning of the Blessed Virgin Mary as Queen of Heaven and Earth

1. R. And so we honor Mary in her Motherhood, and her Virginity and her Immaculate Conception, and we honor Mary as Mother of the Children and in her images. We pray that never again will there be any kind of desecration of any images of Mary's — spiritual Mother of all of us children.

2. R. Mary we honor you as Queen and Mother of heaven and earth, and we pray that the souls of this earth will recognize you as their spiritual Mother and go to your Immaculate Heart.

3. R. We pray for greater devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, that there will be greater purity and less sexual promiscuity on this earth.

4. R. We honor you Mary, sinless Virgin.

5. R. And we thank You God for the beautiful image of Our Lady of Clearwater, and we sing on this day when the children were jailed —

Song: On This Day O Beautiful Mother

R. And Mary smiled.
