Mary's Message
from the Rosary of August 27, 1996

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

end of Mary's Message, August 27, 1996

 

                God created the world out of nothing
                All creation bears the handprint of God —

                God is the ultimate mystery — We do not know everything —
                We walk into the unknown —

                We are to believe God is with us
                God is guiding us if we let Him

                WE WALK AND DO NOT KNOW EVERYTHING
                WE DO NOT KNOW WHAT WILL HAPPEN — UNKNOWN

                Man lives here on earth in space and time.

                God created the world out of nothing
                Many of us do not even know of the beauty and life under
                    the ocean — the order

                It is foolish to leave God out —

                God created us — it is His Plan
                God created the world

                God gave us the light, the sun
                God gave us the stars of night — we don't really see them
                    close up

                God has the Plan
                God wants us to do His will

                People can choose to not get along with others — they have a
                    free will

                But God commands us to love Him and love others as ourselves —
                On this we will be judged

                Fighting God is foolish
                Because we are to obey God's plan and this service of love of
                    God and others determines our eternal reward

                We are here to obey God
                Adam and Eve were in the garden and they disobeyed God
                Secularist do not think they need God —

                We can be selfish —
                    me - me - me —
                    more egotistical
                    focused on self

                God is love
                We were created in the image and likeness of God

                God calls
                We have a free will
                We are to respond to God by doing God's will

                We were created by God to serve God

     

Genesis Chapter 3

Now, the snake was the most subtle of all the wild animals that Yahweh God had made. It asked the woman, 'Did God really say you were not to eat from any of the trees in the garden?' The woman answered the snake, 'We may eat the fruit of the trees in the garden. But of the fruit of the tree in the middle of the garden God said, "You must not eat it, nor touch it, under pain of death." ' Then the snake said to the woman, 'No! You will not die! God knows in fact that the day you eat it your eyes will be opened and you will be like gods, knowing good from evil.' The woman saw that the tree was good to eat and pleasing to the eye, and that it was enticing for the wisdom that it could give. So she took some of its fruit and ate it. She also gave some to her husband who was with her, and he ate it. Then the eyes of both of them were opened and they realised that they were naked. So they sewed fig-leaves together to make themselves loin-cloths.

The man and his wife heard the sound of Yahweh God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid from Yahweh God among the trees of the garden. But Yahweh God called to the man. 'Where are you?' he asked. 'I heard the sound of you in the garden,' he replied. 'I was afraid because I was naked, so I hid.' 'Who told you that you were naked?' he asked. 'Have you been eating from the tree I forbade you to eat?' The man replied, 'It was the woman you put with me; she gave me some fruit from the tree, and I ate it.' Then Yahweh God said to the woman, 'Why did you do that?' The woman replied, 'The snake tempted me and I ate.'

Then Yahweh God said to the snake, 'Because you have done this,

    Accursed be you
    of all animals wild and tame!
    On your belly you will go
    and on dust you will feed
    as long as you live.
    I shall put enmity
    between you and the woman,
    and between your offspring and hers;
    it will bruise your head
    and you will strike its heel.'

    To the woman he said:

    I shall give you intense pain
        in childbearing,
    you will give birth to your children
        in pain.
    Your yearning will be for your husband,
    and he will dominate you.

To the man he said, 'Because you listened to the voice of your wife and ate from the tree of which I had forbidden you to eat,

    Accursed be the soil because of you!
    Painfully will you get your food from it
    as long as you live.
    It will yield you brambles and thistles,
    as you eat the produce of the land.
    By the sweat of your face

    will you earn you food,
    until you return to the ground,
    as you were taken from it.
    For dust you are
    and to dust you shall return.

The man named his wife 'Eve' because she was the mother of all those who live. Yahweh God made tunics of skins for the man and his wife and clothed them. Then Yahweh God said, 'Now that the man has become like one of us in knowing good from evil, he must not be allowed to reach out his hand and pick from the tree of life too, and eat and live for ever!' So Yahweh God expelled him from the garden of Eden, to till the soil from which he had been taken. He banished the man, and in front of the garden of Eden he posted the great winged creatures and the fiery flashing sword, to guard the way to the tree of life.

     

Live today —

Song: Live This Day

Say 'yes' to our vocation

Live to serve God and others by doing God's will in joy

I will live today loving and serving and it will bring me
    joy tomorrow

Live to do God's will — this is the secret to the spiritual life —

God created me — no one is like me
    God had a Plan for my life — to love Him — to help others —
        to love the person God made in me

God loves me so much —
I am to serve and love and give of myself

God lives abundantly in the graced, baptized soul - in a
    special way

Father, Son and Holy Spirit dwell in me —

God loves me so much

I am to bring this love to all
I am to be an instrument of peace and joy and giving —

I am an actor — not a reactor
I learn and love to work to do God's work with others — it is God's will.

It is unpleasing to God when I hurt and manipulate others to get a
    rise - to act out anger —

God is love
God wants us to build His Kingdom in love — under right authority
    Power comes from God
    When we ignore God and do our will opposed to God's will
        to be in control — we try to make ourselves
        over God

On September 11, 2001 — the twin towers were destroyed and peoples lives
    These buildings were destructible
    We must seek to build the Kingdom of God, based on
        obedience and service and love of Him

This Movement exists to help to bring this era of peace,
    when people obey God and right authority from God and
    live in peace and love — like little children being
    obedient to the Master

    

1 John 4: 17-21

  1. Love comes to its perfection in us when we can face the Day of Judgement fearlessly, because even in this world we have become as he is. In love there is no room for fear, but perfect love drives out fear, because fear implies punishment and no one who is afraid has come to perfection in love. Let us love, then, because he first loved us. Anyone who says 'I love God' and hates his brother, is a liar, since whoever does not love the brother whom he can see cannot love God whom he has not seen. Indeed this is the commandment we have received from him, that whoever loves God, must also love his brother.

 

God has beautiful plans for us — to grow in holiness we
    must obey God —
    We see the first parents in the Bible disobeyed God and
        we still suffer today because of it
    We see Cain murdered his brother Abel because of jealousy

The fire of God's love —
    Jesus' Heart is full of fire
    We want to be purged of impurities due to our fallen human nature

 

   

   

 

Set goals, make plans to follow God's Plan for us —
    Fr. Carter prayed every day to be a good Jesuit
    Fr. Carter prayed to love and serve God in his vocation

We are giving big messages to the world by our actions about God —
    We can call ourselves Christians and can be very unloving —
        if so — we are not witnessing to Christ —


Christ is love —
Count the stars - if you can —
Do you clearly see them?
Do you know the baby before it is born?

MYSTERY             UNKNOWN

We are foolish to think we know it all

Look at the vast earth —
    the sky, the sea, the Universe

    

Hebrews 11: 6

Now it is impossible to please God without faith, since anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and rewards those who seek him.

    

We are the sour pusses

We sin, make a mess and we can get messier and messier
    and God is so good to us

Rebelliousness

Believe in the beauty of yourself that God created, but
    live by His Plan — not satan's, not willful
    not rebellious

Help — do what God wants of you and God will give
    you blessings and joy in your heart

The heart is what matters

Giving into the deadly sins
    1) greed 2) envy 3) sloth 4) gluttony 5) wrath 6) lust 7) pride
    makes you miserable

Live to follow God's Plan
    love
    serve
    build the Kingdom
    be a slave for God — not for satan

Nothing is impossible with God

    Look at Elizabeth who was barren —
    God calls us to work and sacrifice
    God calls us to serve and love

Fr. Carter wrote a book


 

Excerpt from Response to God's Love by Fr. Edward Carter, S.J.

The Mystery of Christ and Christian Existence

... In reference to Christianity, God himself is the ultimate mystery. Radically, God is completely other and transcendent, hidden from man in his inner life, unless he chooses to reveal himself. Let us briefly look at this inner life of God.

    The Father, in a perfect act of self-expression, in a perfect act of knowing, generates his son. The Son, the Word, is, then, the immanent expression of God's fullness, the reflection of the Father. Likewise, from all eternity, the Father and the Son bring forth the Holy Spirit in a perfect act of loving.

    At the destined moment in human history, God's self-expression, the Word, immersed himself into man's world. God's inner self-expression now had also become God's outer self-expression. Consequently, the mystery of God becomes the mystery of Christ. In Christ, God tells us about himself, about his inner life, about his plan of creation and redemption. He tells us how Father, Son, and Holy Spirit desire to dwell within us in the most intimate fashion, how they wish to share with us their own life through grace. All this he has accomplished and does accomplish through Christ.

What is God's Plan for you?
Are you living it with energy and love and service

Look at Jesus on the cross

God flooded the earth at the time of Noah —

There was so much corruption among men
It was unloving to let it propagate in offspring — many black hearts

CLEARWATER <———————> NOAH — RAINBOW

  

 

Excerpt from the Spirituality of Fatima

by Fr. Edward Carter, S.J.
 

October 13, 1917

    On October 13, 1917, there were more than 70,000 people gathered in the Cova da Iria in Fatima, Portugal. They had come to observe a miracle which had been foretold by the Blessed Virgin to three young visionaries: Lucia dos Santos, and her two cousins, Jacinta and Francisco Marto. (1) Shortly after noon, Our Lady appeared to the three visionaries:

    As the Lady was about to leave, she pointed to the sun. Lucy excitedly repeated the gesture, and the people looked into the sky. The rain had ceased, the clouds parted, and the sun shone forth, but not in its usual brilliance. Instead, it appeared like a silver disc, pale as the moon, at which all could gaze without straining their eyes. Suddenly, impelled by some mysterious force, the disc began to whirl in the sky, casting off great shafts of multicolored light. Red, green, blue, yellow, violet—the enormous rays shot across the sky at all angles, lighting up the entire countryside for many miles around, but particularly the upturned faces of those 70,000 spellbound people.

    After a few moments the wonder stopped, but resumed again a second and a third time—three times in all—within about 12 minutes. It seemed that the whole world was on fire, with the sun spinning at a greater speed each time.

    Then a gasp of terror rose from the crowd, for the sun seemed to tear itself from the heavens and come crashing down upon the horrified multitude.... Just when it seemed that the ball of fire would fall upon and destroy them, the miracle ceased, and the sun resumed its normal place in the sky, shining forth as peacefully as ever.

    When the people arose from the ground, cries of astonishment were heard on all sides. Their clothes, which had been soaking wet and muddy, now were clean and dry. Many of the sick and crippled had been cured of their afflictions. (2)

Me - Me - Me attitude is not like Christ

    Walk with God there is always a reward

    Abraham was faithful

    People can act evil — me, me, me
        disobey God's commandments
        act unloving
        not serve God

    Abraham was faithful
    Sacrifice

The Secular person enriches himself at the cost of the other.

  

Genesis 15: 1

Some time later, the word of Yahweh came to Abram in a vision: 

Do not be afraid, Abram!
I am your shield
and shall give you a very great reward.

   

Abraham obeyed God
Abraham was tested by God
God gave Abraham an offspring

  

Genesis 15: 5

Then taking him outside, he said, ‘Look up at the sky and count the stars if you can. Just so will your descendants be,’ he told him. 

   

                    I must have faith in God
                    I have a free will
                    It is my response to God

                    Believe in the Mission and serve God

                    Make reparation for the waning faith of the past

                FAITH IS A WALK INTO THE UNKNOWN

                   

Genesis 9: 8-15

    God spoke as follows to Noah and his sons, ‘I am now establishing my covenant with you and with your descendants to come, and with every living creature that was with you: birds, cattle and every wild animal with you; everything that came out of the ark, every living thing on earth. And I shall maintain my covenant with you: that never again shall all living things be destroyed by the waters of a flood, nor shall there ever again be a flood to devastate the earth.’

    ‘And this’, God said, ‘is the sign of the covenant which I now make between myself and you and every living creature with you for all ages to come: I now set my bow in the clouds and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth. When I gather the clouds over the earth and the bow appears in the clouds, I shall recall the covenant between myself and you and every living creature, in a word all living things, and never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all living things.

   

Jeremiah 31: 33

...Then I shall be their God and they will be my people.  

 

                God is the ultimate mystery —

                When we quit trying to learn about God, we are not
                    a disciple

                Disciples are learners
                God is the teacher

                Look at the Fire of Jesus' Heart
                Look at the burning bush with Moses

                Fires represent God —

                His love is never consumed

                FIRE PURGES OUT EVIL

                FIRE a symbol of God's presence

                Holy Saturday — "Christ our light, thanks be to God"

                God is always faithful

                God welcomes the sinner back if they tell Him
                    they are sorry and repents

                God never abandons us

      

Jeremiah 31: 33

...Then I shall be their God and they will be my people.

Sorrowful Mysteries

The Agony in the Garden

  1. 1. R. Be with Jesus as He kneels in the Garden of Gethsemane.

  2. 2. R. Be there in the night. Hear the sounds of the night. See Jesus as He kneels in such agony to see before Him all the sufferings that He is about to undergo.

  3. 3. R. With greatest love for each one of us, the Father sent into this world His only-begotten Son.

  4. 4. R. Jesus took on a human nature with greatest love for each one of us. He now kneels in the Garden, His Heart in such anguish. He who is Love sees before Him all the souls from all time who would neglect Him and treat Him so indifferently despite all His suffering and love that His most tender Heart has for each and every soul.

  5. 5. R. He saw before Him all the souls that would be condemned to eternal damnation despite the fact that He suffered and died for love of each soul.

  6. 6. R. The anguish that He suffered in the Garden, the agonies that He suffered in His most Sacred Heart, were far greater than the physical wounds that He would soon bear throughout His entire Passion. For He is Love, with a Heart burning for love of all souls-the souls that neglect Him, the souls that do not even think of Him, the souls that go through their lives, have nothing to do with Jesus, and then are condemned forever and ever to the fires of hell.

  7. 7. R. Jesus remains with us this very day, the same as the day that He knelt in the Garden. He remains with us in His divinity and humanity. With greatest love for each one of us He longs, He thirsts, He waits for us to come and be with Him in front of the tabernacle.

  8. 8. His suffering in the Garden was so great that His sweat became as great drops of blood upon the ground.

  9. 9. R. He went to the apostles and asked them, "Had you not the strength to stay awake one hour?" (Mk 14:37) How many times does Jesus ask us this day if we do not have one hour to spend with Him? There are twenty-four hours in a day. But how many times during the day do we say no to Jesus, that we are too busy. And His Heart waits and waits for us. At every second His Heart is an endless, burning furnace of love. Whether we think of Him or not, He is always ablaze, on fire for us, loving us and waiting for us to allow Him to be our constant companion.

  10. 10. R. God, grant to us the grace to know and to love You more so that we can more fully realize that You truly are God-made-man in Jesus Christ, that You come to this earth in greatest love for each one of us, that You long and wait for our love and that You want to give us Your love.

Song between decades: I come to you with greatest love, I am your loving Savior. I am your God, I died for you. I come to you this day.

 

The Scourging at the Pillar

  1. 1. Jesus: My Heart is on fire for each one of My precious souls. I long for you to come and be with Me. As I suffered all through My Passion, the greatest agonies were not the agonies that I suffered to My body-the scourging at the pillar, the tearing of My flesh-but the agonies that I endured to My most tender Heart, which is a Heart of love waiting to share with each and every one of My precious souls. Oh, My children, I call out to you this day to spread My love to the world that is in pain. I call out to you to be My soldiers, to spread the love of My Most Sacred Heart to the souls that are suffering and in pain. You are My mighty warriors in a world that is cold and has forgotten God. You must be strong soldiers, for this world will persecute you as they persecuted Me. I send you into the world, armed with hearts filled with My love, to spread My love along the highways and the byways in every corner of this earth and I ask you this day, can you say no?

  2. 2. Jesus: They tied Me to a pillar and they beat My flesh. My once unblemished back was now an open wound. I was full of blood. But My worst agony was the agony that I endured in My Most Sacred Heart, the Heart that gives to you and to every soul divine love, divine life, and is rejected by many, is treated coldly.

  3. 3. Jesus: I loved Judas so dearly and Judas betrayed Me with a kiss. How many of My dear souls come to Me with hearts that are hot and cold. I want you to come to Me with hearts, full of love, that will unite with Mine, that will become one with Mine, that will give to this world My love for your hurting brothers. I ask you this day, "Do not say no!" I am truly Jesus Christ, the Son of God, Who was scourged at the pillar for love of your brothers. I ask you to hear the blows that they gave to Me. They are the blows that I suffered for your brother. How can you treat your brother badly when they tore My flesh, and out of greatest love I withstood all this treatment for your beloved brother?

  4. 4. Jesus: I gave My all. I stood there. I was beaten. I was bruised. I was bloodied. I came to show you the way, the way to love. They persecuted Me. I loved those who persecuted Me. I ask you this day to be kind in your heart, to give to this world the love that I want to give to you. I am a burning furnace of endless love. My power never goes out. My love is never spent. Come to My Most Sacred Heart and I will fill your hearts with endless love.

  5. 5. Song: Lord, let me walk that last mile in Your shoes, under the weight of the wood…

  6. 6. Jesus: See in the dim light as I stand at the pillar. See the men with their angry faces, with hatred in their hearts, as they pound at My flesh.

  7. 7. Jesus: When they persecute you and hate you because you are not of this world, you must endure all out of greatest love. My way is always love. I came to show you the way, the way to eternal happiness. It is only in loving one another that you will merit eternal life. I ask you for two things. I ask you to love God and to love one another.

  8. 8. Jesus: Come to My Eucharistic Heart! Let Me fill you with the fire of My love so that it will radiate to all those that you come in contact with. For the power of the Almighty God is a power that cannot be contained. It will radiate from your being to all those you touch.

  9. 9. Jesus: When I walked from the pillar, the earth was marked by My bloody footprints.

  10. 10. Jesus: As the earth was marked by My bloody footprints, I ask you to make a mark on this world, to spread to this world the love of My Most Sacred Heart.

Song between decades: I come to you with greatest love…

  

The Crowning with Thorns

  1. 1. Jesus: My body was battered, bruised and bloodied, and they covered Me with a dirty purple robe that they put on top of My wounds. I held a scepter and they crowned Me with a sharp crown of piercing thorns.

  2. 2. R. Do you know what it is like to get a little splinter in your hand? They pounded into Jesus' most precious head thorns that were thick and piercing until the blood ran down His face, into His eyes and into His ears. His hair was matted. This was truly the King of Kings! The Son of God! And He was crowned with a crown of piercing thorns!

  3. 3. Song: Only this I want, but to know the Lord, and to bear His cross, so to wear the crown He wore…

  4. 4. Jesus: They spit on Me and they hollered slanders at Me and I sat, as they did, in silence.

  5. 5. Jesus: I truly came into this world, the Son of God, to show you the way. As I sat in silence, think of how you respond to those who come to you with hatred in their hearts. My way is the way of love. You must love all your brothers as I have loved.

  6. 6. Jesus: My Father created each and every child-so precious, so unique-with such love that He sent Me into this world.

  7. 7. Jesus: I love you so this day that I would suffer again all that I suffered for you before.

  8. 8. Jesus: With all the love that I pour out to each and every one of you, think of how it is to love so much and to be neglected by so many.

  9. 9. Jesus: Pray to the Spirit to open your heart to the fire of My love.

  10. 10. Jesus: You are blind men! You do not see the love that I outpour to you. You see little incidental things, so close in front of your face, when My Heart is overflowing with divine love, with divine life. I want to give you My life! I give you Myself in the Eucharist. Come for My love. Nothing on this earth can compare to My divine love and My divine life that I want to give to you!

Song between decades: I come to you with greatest love...

  

The Carrying of the Cross

  1. 1. R. See Jesus with His hands tied, with a look of perfect peace on His face. And see those men who are surrounding Jesus, with their sharp instruments poking at Him with anger and hatred on their faces-such anger and hatred that they condemned Jesus to death on a cross!

  2. 2. R. They gave to Him a heavy cross that they put on His most precious shoulder. He carried the weight of the sins of the world on His back. This is the love that He has for each and every man, that He carries the cross with our sins on His back.

  3. 3. R. He calls out to us that He is no less present in the Eucharist this day than the day He walked to Calvary with His cross on His back. And He says to each one of us, "I give you Myself. Why do you run from My altar when I, Jesus Christ, the Son of God, come to you and become one with you, and you run from the Church?"

  4. 4. Jesus: I peered into the eyes of My beloved mother and she peered into My eyes. There was joy at the meeting of the eyes, but such sorrow deep within each of Our Hearts. The knowing of My mother, the knowing of Me, her most precious Son, and how she had held Me and loved Me! I saw her in such suffering! I saw her face with tears. I saw My most precious mother torn so deeply in her Heart. It is the love of Our Hearts for you that has led us to this place. I ask you to spread this love throughout the world. I would truly carry My cross this day for you because I love you so dearly. My children! My children! What more do you want than that God comes to earth and is born a man out of greatest love for you? And you in your limited vision see only in front of your face. You do not come to My altar to receive the life that I want to outpour to you. My children! My children! You are so blind! Pray for grace! Pray for My life, to know and love all that you do not see. You do not see because you do not come to My altar, because you do not spend time with Me!

  5. 5. Jesus: My mother comes to stay, to lead you ever closer to My most tender Heart. I ask you to answer this call, the call of the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Sacred Heart of Jesus, to be joined ever closer to the Hearts brimming over with love for each and every soul.

  6. 6. Jesus: I fell under My cross. The weight was so heavy! I did not give My cross up. I willingly carried this cross for love of you!

  7. 7. Jesus: It is in living in the Father's Will that you will be the happiest. To My very death I followed the Will of the Father.

  8. 8. Song: See the eyes that look at Mary, her tender infant child. See the child's Heart beat so tenderly, the Savior of the world.

  9. 9. R. See through the eyes of Mary. She peered into Jesus' eyes on Calvary. See through the eyes of Mary as she comes and appears to us this day to tell us to see her through her eyes the love of her precious Son, Jesus Christ, to see that He truly walked to Calvary, that He was truly scourged and crowned with thorns and that He did it for greatest love of each of us. And He calls out this day for us to come and be with Him and to spread His love to this world.

  10. 10. Song: She rocked Him as a baby. She fed Him as a child. She heard Him call Her name out in the night. She helped Him take His first step and she cried when He said His first words. I wish they all could see through a Mother's eyes.

Song between decades: I come to you with greatest love…

  

The Crucifixion and Death of Jesus on the Cross

  1. 1. R. See the little hands of Jesus. See the little feet of Jesus as Mary holds Him as a baby. And now she stands and watches as they pound nails through His most precious hands into the cross. The anguish in her Heart so deep! And a sword, too, shall pierce your Heart, Oh Mary!

  2. 2. R. Mary does not bear the wounds, the blood, as Jesus does. But Mary's Heart is torn to see her beloved Son, battered, bruised and bloody, and now hanging on the cross!

  3. 3. R. Be there! The sky has turned dark as Jesus hangs for three agonizing hours on the cross. His body is humped over. He is so weak! He gives His blood. He spreads His arms. He gives His all for love of each and every one of us. He truly gives His flesh. He gives His blood because He loves us so much! He was born a human! He was born on bare wood in a stable and now He hangs on a cross!

  4. 4. R. His blood was spent so that we could inherit eternal life.

  5. 5. R. As He gave His life on the cross, so He gives us His life this day in the Eucharist!

  6. 6. Song: I am the Bread of Life. He who comes to Me shall not hunger and who believes in Me shall not thirst. No one can come to Me unless the Father beckons. And I will raise you up, and I will raise you up, and I will raise you up on the last day.

  7. 7. R. He gave the last beat of His Heart. He gave His last breath. He gave His all. His hands were punctured with nails. His Head was pierced with thorns. He gave the inside of His body as well as the outside of His body! And He asks us, in greatest love, to surrender ourselves to Him. For He truly gave His all for love of us. If He loved us so much that He gave His body, His blood, His all for each and every one of us, would He not give us from His abundance this day? He comes with such letters of love to tell you that He is truly Jesus Christ, the Son of God, and in your midst this day in the Eucharist, waiting for you to come and be with Him, for He truly loves with a Heart of divine love. He truly has divine life that He outpours to each and every soul. He wants so much to share Himself with each one of us!
    Jesus: Come to Me, My children, and I will give you My divine love, My divine life. I love you so dearly! I call out to you this day to come for My love and to give this love to the world for it is only through you that the Father's plan will be realized. For a heart fixed on the love of God can move a mountain. I am asking you to live in the Father's Will, to spread My love throughout the world. If you say no, this world will suffer. You are My chosen ones, each and every soul. Come! Be filled with the love I pour out to you. Love your fellowmen. Love your brothers when they hate you and persecute you. Love them as I loved those who put Me to death. I ask you this day to open your hearts and rid yourselves of all impurities, to pray to the Spirit to sanctify your hearts, to clean out the debris of hatred and anger, and to come to My tabernacle with a heart that is open and pure so I can fill you with My divine love. For it is in your uniting with Me that I can operate from you and love this world as I so desire. This is My call to you this day. Can you say no? See Me hanging on the cross. This is how I loved you!

  8. 8. R. Mary stood under the cross and she saw Her beloved Son as He took His last breath.

  9. 9. R. She calls out to you this day. She is calling! She is calling each and every soul that He gave His life for to know His love. For it is only in this love that you will find what your soul craves.

  10. 10. R. And they gave to Mary the lifeless body of her precious Son. As she held His baby body tenderly in her arms, she-so weak!-now holds His lifeless body in her arms, covered with blood.

Words of Jesus to Members of
Shepherds of Christ Associates:

"My beloved priest-companion, I intend to use the priestly newsletter, Shepherds of Christ, and the movement, Shepherds of Christ Associates, in a powerful way for the renewal of My Church and the world.

"I will use the newsletter and the chapters of Shepherds of Christ Associates as a powerful instrument for spreading devotion to My Heart and My Mother's Heart.

"I am calling many to become members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. To all of them I will give great blessings. I will use them as instruments to help bring about the triumph of the Immaculate Heart and the reign of My Sacred Heart. I will give great graces to the members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. I will call them to be deeply united to My Heart and to Mary's Heart as I lead them ever closer to My Father in the Holy Spirit."

- Message from Jesus to Father Edward J. Carter, S.J., Founder, as given on July 31, 1994,
feast of Saint Ignatius Loyola, Founder of the Society of Jesus (The Jesuits)
