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

 

John 19: 25-27

Near the cross of Jesus stood his mother and his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary of Magdala. Seeing his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing near her, Jesus said to his mother, ‘Woman, this is your son.’ Then to the disciple he said, ‘This is your mother.’ And from that hour the disciple took her into his home.

   

Psalm 101: 1-3b, 5-6

I will sing of faithful love and judgement;
to you, Yahweh, will I make music.
I will go forward in the path of the blameless;
when will you come to me?

I will live in purity of heart,
    in my house,
I will not set before my eyes
    anything sordid.

One who secretly slanders a comrade,
    I reduce to silence;
haughty looks, proud heart,
    these I cannot abide.

I look to the faithful of the land
    to be my companions,
only he who walks in the path of the blameless
    shall be my servant.

   

                R.  God is Master over creation

                God gives us the sun and the moon and the stars and
                    the vegetation —

                God gives us fruit and plants that can
                    propagate themselves

                There is a natural order in the universe

                Life propagates according to this natural order —

                God gives us the light and the darkness, the
                    ocean, seas, rivers, the dry land,
                    the mountains and hills, the ice and
                    the rain

                God is the Master over creation —
                God gave us animals and fish and
                God gave us man and woman

                We were created in the image and likeness
                    of God — to love and to serve our
                    God

                The human person is the apex of creation —

                There is one God and 3 distinct Persons

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.

                God is our ruler
                God gives us a free will

                God created us out of love
                God loves us so much

                We are created out of love — our parents
                    receive this precious gift to co-create —
                    we should be loving parents — likened
                    to how God wants us to be —

                Resting on the Sabbath day — going to Church
                    helps us to keep in mind the world
                    is in God's hands

                Christ came our Savior

                What does Jesus say?

                He gave me this song

                Jesus gave me all the Blue Book writings —
                    for the world — for the souls He loves so much —
                    Jesus' love letters

                God created a beautiful, peaceful, loving
                    harmonious, good, orderly world
                    without sin, violence or evil —

                God gave us a world that reflected the
                    love between Him and His creatures —

                When we live by the Divine will —
                    we have an orderly world as our
                    Creator intends

                Disorder and evil come from rejection to
                    God's will 

 

                We see the slavery of the Jews
                We see them struggle to get to the Promise Land
                The struggle is over the Pharaoh — Ramses
                Remember the plagues —
                Evil is stubborn

                Look at the world —
                    people are stubborn many times — they
                        don't want to admit they were wrong —
                        they don't want to say they were sorry —

                Song: Why Do We Hurt the Ones We Love

                In the Holy Spirit sequence it says

"Bend the stubborn heart and will;
    melt the frozen, warm the chill —
    guide the steps that go astray"

 

SIN DEADENS

  

                Blinds us

                What matters is being more and more like Jesus — who
                    died doing His Father's will — obedience and love

                    We are here to try to get to heaven.
                Heaven is a reward promised to
                those who love and serve the Lord.

                    Mary came at Clearwater —
                a loving Mother — to tell us what to
                do

 

   

    Jesus gave us the Blue Books —

Blue Book II

Blue Book III

Blue Book IV

Ecclesiastes 3: 1-11

There is a season for everything, a time for every occupation under heaven: 

A time for giving birth, 
a time for dying; 
a time for planting, 
a time for uprooting what has been planted. 
A time for killing, 
a time for healing; 
a time for knocking down, 
a time for building. 
A time for tears, 
a time for laughter; 
a time for mourning, 
a time for dancing. 
A time for throwing stones away, 
a time for gathering them; 
a time for embracing, 
a time to refrain from embracing. 
A time for searching, 
a time for losing; 
a time for keeping, 
a time for discarding. 
A time for tearing, 
a time for sewing; 
a time for keeping silent, 
a time for speaking. 
A time for loving, 
a time for hating; 
a time for war, 
a time for peace. 

    What do people gain from the efforts they make? I contemplate the task that God gives humanity to labour at. All that he does is apt for its time; but although he has given us an awareness of the passage of time, we can grasp neither the beginning nor the end of what God does.

 

Wisdom 3: 1-9

But the souls of the upright are in the hands of God, 
and no torment can touch them. 
To the unenlightened, they appeared to die, 
their departure was regarded as disaster, 
their leaving us like annihilation; 
but they are at peace. 
If, as it seemed to us, they suffered punishment, 
their hope was rich with immortality; 
slight was their correction, great will their blessings be. 
God was putting them to the test 
and has proved them worthy to be with him; 
he has tested them like gold in a furnace, 
and accepted them as a perfect burnt offering. 
At their time of visitation, they will shine out; 
as sparks run through the stubble, so will they. 
They will judge nations, rule over peoples, 
and the Lord will be their king for ever. 
Those who trust in him will understand the truth, 
those who are faithful will live with him in love; 
for grace and mercy await his holy ones, 
and he intervenes on behalf of his chosen.

 

 

 

Written September 24, 2000

Messenger:  I watched by his bed.

A book for those who help cancer patients, for their relatives and friends who need to cope with the suffering of losing a loved one. 

    It was a quiet day or so it seemed, the long months of watching John go "down hill" had come to an end.

    I did not know that the end was indeed so near, but the story had been written in the days that went before, but I really never read the message given in the days that led up to that final page.

    There were months of warnings, but I just lived every day coping with that day’s events and when the final page was about to be written, I felt shocked, empty and afraid.

    The days before were all telling the story, but like anyone in love with a family member, who wants to think that days of parting might be so soon? Oh, but they were so soon. As I look back now, I see I just didn’t recognize them.

    Every person can only do so much, but out of love those we love deeply and love us, sometimes, cover up their real conditions in an attempt to live life as usual.

    Cancer is a mighty menace. It attacks the weak and the strong. It acts like an aggressive machine growing and growing inside someone’s body and they may not notice the gradual sucking of their life from the other parts of the body until it almost leaves them dead.

    I was a little girl of five years old when the deadly disease ate away the cells in my mother’s body as it took over her body and she soon died.

    But I am not here to make you feel sorry for me or to tell you about anything new, but to write of the dying and rising of my dear friend, Fr. Carter.

    The signs were there, for in January he became very sick and even though he wanted to go to the Virgin Mary building to say a private Mass there, he could not go and the once held plane reservations were cancelled.

    He remained sick and on February 5, 2000, when we opened the Rosary Factory in Clearwater, Florida at Mary’s Image site, he did attend, but he didn’t feel good and he continued trying really hard to serve us as a ministry.

    Now, I don’t know, in September after they opened him up and told us what they did, how he ever did all he did, being so sick. It was September 22, 2000, when they operated on him and it was January 22, 2000, when we were supposed to go to Clearwater, Florida, exactly eight months later.

    Father Carter continued to keep a hectic schedule.

    Jesus told him to write the lengthy spirituality newsletter in which he summed up a great deal about the spiritual life. We could all study it for our entire life.

    As I write this, I don’t know if he will ever tape record this 20 page newsletter or the next newsletter.

    I do know this, the signs were there and Father worked really hard to continue doing all he did despite his sickness, weakness. His faith in the Movement never wavered. He had a burning desire to serve Jesus and help renew the priesthood, the Church and the world.

    Father worked and worked because he loved us all so much and loved the world and he didn’t complain, ever.

    His faith in this Movement and the messages of Jesus is shown in his life given to this.

    Father showed us the message of Jesus in his life. He lived in such union with Him. He offered Mass every day praying so fervently for souls and for all of us.

    I see the signs especially on the trips. Mary was adorned in gold on the building July 5, 2000, during the evening prayer service.

 

 

R. Father was in the motel and he didn’t feel good.

    After the Mass he had to sit and he didn’t think he would make it during the Mass because he was weak.

    I watched a lot of Masses that way, between his blood sugar levels and he seemed to just sigh sometimes to do ordinary motions, but he kept serving God and loving us all.

    I watched him look up to the Father and say, “through him, with him and in him”.

 

Through Him, with Him and in Him

 

R. He lived for the Mass. He offered it for the Movement and for all of us, the whole Church and the world, to help bring about the Reign of Jesus’ Sacred Heart.

    I can show you the picture taken on my birthday, August 8, 2000, he looked really bad and I worried about him so much I cried as I spoke to him, but in his calm, peaceful attitude, he assured me everything was okay as God wanted it and he was getting proper care.

 

 

R. Every day he looked weaker and he coughed whenever he talked and we all prayed more.

    He was determined to say Mass in China on the Feast of Mary’s birthday, September 8, 2000, and he paid a big price for it.

    For about 4 months he struggled with the cough and he walked slower and slower and he looked sicker every day, but he knew what God was telling him and about his mission.

     

Written September 24, 2000

R. Mary stood beneath the cross of her Son and she was in such anguish, of this I write. 

She saw the anguish of her beloved Son. She watched, she heard Him sigh, breath, she endured the time, knowing the time was near for His death. 

There was the intensity of waiting during the passion. Think of her anguish watching him as He hung on the cross.  

Mary knew things from the prophecy of Simeon. She knew of a deep sorrow to pierce her heart. 

Think of the anguish of her heart.  

Think of Mary holding the lifeless body of Jesus under the cross. Meditate on the sufferings she endured. 

Think of how she felt at the tomb where they laid her Son. 

Pray for light to know more fully the heart of Mary in these sufferings. 

Mary had such a deep connection in her heart to Jesus. They were so united.  

Death by crucifixion was used to kill criminals. They crucified Jesus, the Son of God. 

 

July 5, 2001

 

R. It is painful to see injustices in the world. 

We go through sufferings concerning injustices in the world. Mary cries out about the sins of her children. We identify with Jesus. He knew all the souls that would be lost despite His suffering. 

Be with Jesus in the garden of Gethsemane and see the sins of the world. Pray for knowledge to know more about the souls being lost. We must pray more fervently. Beg for mercy from God for our sins and the sins of the world. 

I could write forever of those moments of Mary as she stood beneath the cross or when she held the lifeless body of her Son in her lap. 

She shared in His Passion. She stood and watched Him suffer. She did not take a pill to numb her pain, nor was there any mechanism used to dull it. Every moment was with full intensity as she watched His mutilated body be drained more and more of fluid and blood until He took His last breath, giving His life for His precious souls. 

A person watching someone linger with cancer can identify with Mary as she watched her beloved Son die. 

We will die. 

We must keep our focus on the life hereafter. 

A woman of beauty, our Mother Mary, God allowed Mary to suffer. 

  

Luke 2: 35 

and a sword will pierce your soul too—so that the secret thoughts of many may be laid bare.’

R. Many times we try to alleviate suffering from our lives. 

    Suffering was a major part of the life of Mary. 

    Her heart was filled with such knowledge. She knew joy and suffering. She watched her Son die a pitiable death. Jesus is the Lamb of God. 

    We think we are so smart here. Do we really know the ways of our God? We think the way it is at present may go on and on. The flower eventually withers and fades and the beauty of the full blossoming flower goes with time. A flower, once an instrument of awe because of its beauty, may soon be thrown on a dung heap pile. 

    Our bodies may deteriorate and decay, but God promises eternal life to those who love and serve Him. 

    Be with Mary outside the tomb of Christ. Feel the emotion in Mary’s heart. 

    Pray for sorrow for our sins and light to know God more and more. 

    Contemplate the joy of Mary to know Christ has risen. 

    She saw her little baby born in Bethlehem. Now she sees Him die on the cross. Christ her beloved Son, rose victorious. We receive a sharing in His Divine life through baptism. 

    The rosary is so beautiful. We meditate on the lives of Jesus and Mary. 

    We identify our lives with Theirs. We live His life, death and resurrection in our lives. We ask God to help us grow in a greater likeness to the New Adam and the New Eve. 

    Many times we take our health for granted. God can call us from this life at any moment.

Excerpt from Priestly Newsletter 1998 - ISSUE FOUR

    Shortly before he was to die from cancer, Joseph Cardinal Bernardin left us these inspiring words about peace: "It is the first day of November, and fall is giving way to winter. Soon the trees will lose the vibrant colors of their leaves and snow will cover the ground. The earth will shut down, and people will race to and from their destinations bundled up for warmth. Chicago winters are harsh. It is a time of dying.

    "But we know that spring will soon come with all its new life and wonder.

    "It is quite clear that I will not be alive in the spring. But I will soon experience new life in a different way...

    "What I would like to leave behind is a simple prayer that each of you may find what I have foundGod's special gift to us all: the gift of peace. When we are at peace, we find the freedom to be most fully who we are, even in the worst of times. We let go of what is non-essential and embrace what is essential. We empty ourselves so that God may more fully work within us. And we become instruments in the hands of the Lord."

Joyful Mysteries
 

    Mary appeared in the Sorrowful Mother Chapel for two hours. The whole corner was adorned in the most brilliant celestial light with a pink hew. Marty and I will never forget the experience of this evening. Jesus illuminated in the Sacred Heart statue during the litany and the promises of the Sacred Heart. Jesus requested that this rosary be circulated to all.

 

The Annunciation

  1. 1. R. The Angel Gabriel appeared to Mary and asked Mary to be the Mother of Jesus.

  2. 2. R. Mary always complied with the Will of the Father. Jesus always complied with the Will of the Father. In looking at their lives we see how they always lived according to the Father's Will. It is in living according to His Will that our true joy and happiness lie.

  3. 3. R. She was filled with the Holy Spirit and the Word became flesh and dwelt among us.

  4. 4. R. Picture the Virgin Mary as vividly as you possibly can and see Mary as she carries the child Jesus within her womb.

  5. 5. R. She conceived the child Jesus. Mary, a spotless virgin, conceived Jesus, the Son of God. He was inside of her! She was bursting with the life that was God's life radiating from her very being!

  6. 6. R. Do we realize how God wants to be one with us? The more we become united to Him, the more His presence radiates from within us and shines to those that we come in contact with. God is so good that He sent to this world His only begotten Son through the Virgin Mary. He sent His Son because He loves us and He yearns and longs and thirsts for us to be ever closer to Him. It is in His presence within us that we will light up this world. It is in our oneness with Him that we will shine as little lights to the rest of the world.

  7. 7. Song: O holy dwelling place of God. O holy temple of the Word. O holy Mary, holy Mother of God!

  8. 8. R. God so loved the world that He sent His only begotten Son into this world, incarnate in the womb of the Virgin Mary. The Word became flesh! God took on flesh!

  9. 9. R. As Mary contained the presence of the Almighty God, as He grew within her womb, His Sacred Heart was formed in her womb through the power of the Holy Spirit. He remains with us this day in the sanctuary of the tabernacle. His same presence is there. God, in His divinity and humanity, truly present in the tabernacle, longing for us to come and to share our lives and our time with Him.

  10. 10. R. I see before me so clearly the Virgin Mary as she carried the child within her womb. It seems beautiful to think of Mary carrying the child Jesus within her, but the risen Lord is with us this very day! He remains with us in greatest love but His Heart is wounded by the indifference and the neglect of His chosen souls, the ones He loves so dearly, that totally neglect Him and treat Him so coldly.

    Who are we that God is so good that He sent into this world His only begotten Son and that He loves us so much that He created us in His own image and likeness? We are His creatures but He raises us to such heights in His divine life.

Song between decades: Come, Holy Spirit, fill our hearts. Enkindle in us the fire of Your love. Come, Holy Spirit, fill our hearts. Enkindle in us the fire of Your love.

    

 

The Visitation

  1. 1. R. Mary made haste to the hill country to visit her cousin Elizabeth who also was with child.

  2. 2. R. When she arrived, the child in Elizabeth's womb leapt for joy.

  3. 3. R. And Elizabeth cried out in a loud voice, "Of all women you are the most blessed and blessed is the fruit of your womb! Why should I be honoured with a visit from the mother of my Lord?" (Lk 1:42,43)

  4. 4. R. And the child in her womb leapt for joy!

  5. 5. R. Mary cried out in a loud voice the Magnificat!

  6. 6. Song: My soul rejoices in God, my Savior. My spirit finds its joy in God, the living God.

  7. 7. R. For He Who is mighty hath done great things to me and holy is His name!

  8. 8. R. John the Baptist, even in his mother's womb, leapt for joy. Prepare ye a way for the Lord! He is truly coming and He is in our midst this day. Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is truly present and we stand around and balk and do not realize the immensity of the great gift that He has given us. Fill our hearts with Your grace so that we may be gifted with courage to go out and spread the Good News, the news of His great love to all the souls that He longs to be close to. For truly, if we love Him, it is our duty to go out and tell others of the immense love He has for them!

  9. 9. Jesus:  I call out to you this day, My beloved ones, for I am truly present. You are My chosen ones that I call upon to unite ever so closely to My Heart. I send you into this world among the wolves that will bite at you and grab at you. You must be strong soldiers to spread My love throughout the world. Will you not answer this call for I am calling with such an ardent plea? Please, I am begging you to take this plea seriously.

  10. 10. R. Prepare ye a way for the Lord for He is truly coming! He is in our midst this day. Go into the highways and the byways and spread the Good News for you truly possess the keys to the Kingdom of Heaven!

    Jesus:  Let your hearts not be heavy but light, filled with the fire of My love. Ascend upward and upward. Do not be dragged down by the perils and the sins of this world for I am filling you with My divine life and My divine love. You must forever ascend upward, always with your eyes cast upward toward heaven for you are My soldiers that I send into this world to spread the Good News to all those that are hurting and in pain. I call out to you. Do not worry for what is happening around you.

Song between decades: Come Holy Spirit, fill our hearts…

     

  

The Birth of Jesus

  1. 1. R. The child Jesus was born in the town of Bethlehem in such poverty. He was born in a stable because there was not room for Him in the inn.

  2. 2. R. See a little, tiny baby, so helpless! A baby that cannot do anything! God, in all of His might and power, came to this earth as a little, tiny baby!

  3. 3 R. His way always was to comply with the Will of the Father. Mary always lived according to His Will. It is in complying to the Father's Will that we will know true peace and joy in our lives.

  4. 4. Mary:  I am the Immaculate Conception. I am here with you, my beloved ones. I call out to you to pray fervently, for the days ahead are days filled with suffering. This world has lost its way. You must pray fervently for all beloved souls. I call you to pray this rosary every day. Pray the rosary as you have never prayed from your heart before. Be filled with the love of my Heart and my Son, Jesus. Be forever wrapped in our lives. Come, come to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary and be led deeply into our immense love for you. Pray, my little ones, for sufferings are to come, deep sufferings. This world is disobedient. They will not obey the laws and commands of my Son. I have come! I have called! I am ignored! My dear ones, my sweet ones, I tell you, I tell you to pray. Listen with your ears open and your hearts filled with the love of God. It will be your strength for the dark days that are ahead. I am the Immaculate Heart. I call out to you, my beloved. This rosary is a tool that will draw many hearts to the Hearts of me and my Son.

  5. 5. Mary:  I pray with you, my little ones. Each prayer that you pray should be connected with me and my Son and the angels and saints and the souls in purgatory. You are praying as one with the courts of heaven. Lift high your hearts! Lift your voices and join with us!

  6. 6. Mary:  I pray for this world, for this world that is sinful and godless. I ask you to pray fervently and to come to my Most Immaculate Heart.

  7. 7. Mary:  How my little children suffer, little children that are so young! Men's hearts are so cruel and filled with self. I beg you to go out and spread the love of my Son to this world. You must stayed fixed on Him!

  8. 8. Mary:  My Heart bleeds and I cry bloody tears for the slaughter that is happening to the young ones. As my child was a baby in my arms, I call out to you to pray fervently for the little ones, for they are being persecuted far beyond anyone's comprehension from the ways of this world. My precious little children!

  9. 9. Mary:  I am the Mother of all!

  10. 10. Mary:  I am the Immaculate Conception and I am truly present and with you. Men will not listen. They will not turn from their ways. You must pray as you never prayed before. The times at hand are times of great suffering. I am calling out to you to spread this message to the world, for this world is not listening. Who is here to pray with you? Three! Three of you are here and I am in your midst! Men do not care for their world. They hold on to their world and I tell you over and over again to pray the rosary. I am truly present and I am here with you!

The Presentation of Our Lord in the Temple

  1. 1. R. Mary and Joseph went to the temple with the Child Jesus in their arms. Simeon, the prophet, was there and told Joseph and Mary of the sufferings that Jesus and Mary would have to undergo.

  2. 2. Mary:  My Heart was pierced with a sword so many times through my Child's life. My dear ones, people will suffer because they will not listen. They are willful in their ways. I call out to you to spread these messages in any way that you can, for I am truly speaking to you here and times are so short. My dear ones, carry this message out to this world, for sufferings are at hand!

  3. 3. Mary:  I call you to come on the fifth of April and pray the rosary here in this room.

  4. 4. Mary:  Bring with you all that will pray, for sufferings are at hand. You will suffer such immense sufferings. You need to pray! Pray the rosary! Tell all to come and be with me in this room to pray the rosary!

  5. 5. Mary:  I have held back the hand of my Son! He will call upon the earth and there will be such suffering, my beloved ones. You tarry too long! These messages of His love must circulate! You do not know what is about to befall the earth. I call out to you this day to listen to me for, as you see me illuminated before you, you know that what I speak to you is true.

  6. 6. Mary:  Pray! Pray! Pray!

  7. 7. Mary:  I am Our Lady of Light and I appear to you to take this message to this world this day! Carry this message to every person and tell them what I tell you here!

  8. 8. Mary:  My Heart was pierced with a sword as I stood beneath the cross of my Son! As He gave His life, His flesh and His blood for love of you, my Son loves each and every soul. He died for them! I beg you to go into this world and to spread His love to every corner of this world. You can not hold back! Souls will be lost because they did not know the love of my Son. You are in a position, for He is speaking to you, to carry this message to those who are hurting. Feed the hungry souls with the love of my Son!

  9. 9. Mary:  Let your hearts be filled with my light! May you have the courage that the Holy Spirit will give to you so strongly to transform you from fear to fearlessness, to carry out the plan of the Father. You are my lights to shine to this darkened world! Let your hearts be opened and go, my children! Go! I summon you to go and to not hold back!

  10. 10. Song: 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.

Mary:  I will make myself known to those who come and pray this rosary!

Song between decades: Come, Holy Spirit, fill our hearts…

    

  

The Finding of Jesus in the Temple

  1. 1. Mary:  I would like my Son Jesus present in the tabernacle when you pray this rosary!

  2. 2. Mary:  My Son was taken to the Temple for the feast of the Passover. We lost my Son in the Temple. So many souls this day are in deep darkness and have lost their way. They are dead in their hearts! I pray to you to go out to this world and spread the good news! You are so favored by God that you are given such great gifts! To hold them to yourself is not to His liking! I beg you to spread this news, to pray for courage, to do what He is asking you to do!

  3. 3. Mary:  He has chosen this Center to be apostles to go out into the world and to spread the love of His Most Sacred Heart through my Most Immaculate Heart. Can you not answer the call that I give to you this day? You are so favored, so chosen, so gifted by God Himself and you bicker and you fight and you complain! You, my chosen ones, the chosen race, look at you!

  4. 4. Mary:  You look at each other with eyes of envy when God is speaking here! Each person that receives this message is receiving a grace, a gift from God Himself! You do not even see! You are so blind!

  5. 5. Mary:  Pride is an evil that ruins men's hearts. Speak to all men of pride. It is only a loving heart that will unite with the Heart of my Son. A heart of love will light up this darkened world. I send you as soldiers into a world that is godless! You are fighting a battle with this world, with hearts full of the love of my Son. Look at all the souls that are lost! Look at the children of these parents who have gone astray! Little children! Look at their lives! I am so sad for the lives of my children. I call to you this day. Look at your world, America! You are so blind! You do not see! You have turned deaf and you have closed your eyes! I come and I appear! My Son talks and so many do not pay Him heed! I beg you! I beg you to heed my words for I truly am Mary, and I am speaking to you!

  6. 6. Mary:  Hearts that are hard, hearts that are godless, hearts that are lifeless, hearts that are dead in sin! Look at your world, America! Can you turn your head and look the other way? I come and I plead with you to turn your hearts back to the love of my Son, and who listens? Three come to pray my rosary with me! How do I shake those into listening to me here for I am truly speaking in this rosary to my beloved children? Listen to me! All those who come to this rosary will receive abundant graces from me and my Son!

  7. 7. Mary:  My lost children, how the fires in hell burn, burn so brightly for the souls that were willful and had their own way. You do not see! You do not comprehend! You focus on little details here in your lives! Focus on the fires of hell, my dear, sweet children. Souls are burning in the fires of hell for their own willfulness and sin, and many more will be lost despite the sufferings of my Son. Many souls will be lost. I call you to unite with the Heart of my Son, to go into this world and preach the Gospel at every highway and byway, to spread the love of my Son, Jesus.

  8. 8. Mary:  My little, lost children, I am your Mother, and I lead you on your way, closer and closer to Heaven!

  9. 9. Song: O holy dwelling place of God. O holy temple of the Word. O holy Mary, holy Mother of God!

  10. 10. Mary:  Tomorrow is the 31st of March and I tell you to come to this chapel and pray the rosary in this chapel at 6:20 p.m.

Vision March 20, 1997

Junior Shepherds of Christ Meeting
Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center

    Mary appeared as Our Lady of Fatima for one hour and 15 minutes. Mary appeared in the Sorrowful Mother statue at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center.

    I was at Our Lady's House for the Junior Shepherds of Christ meeting. I cannot remember any great apparition of Mary in the Sorrowful Mother statue since August 12 and 13, 1996. She appeared all night and two times on August 13, 1996, once right before I went to the rosary at Tom's farm about 5:30 p.m. (the night John was there and St. Michael came out of the water). Mary comes when you least expect her.

    Tonight I went to the Holy Spirit Center for the rosary with the Junior Shepherds of Christ. We could not pray in the Rosary chapel because Fr. Smith was going to say Mass. We could not pray in the Sorrowful Mother's chapel because the pews were draped with work clothes. We could not pray in the social hall because the band was playing. The only place left was in the hall on the other side of the wall from the band. The youth in the Shepherds of Christ chapter decided this was the place and moved pews in front of the statue.

    As we began the rosary I began to see Mary, covered with a mist. Then I saw light around her. She got bigger than the statue, her face softened to that of the most beautiful woman—the same as the picture I took on Mother's Day 1995 when she told me to buy film and take her picture. She was all adorned in light. She changed, around her head and she became a young, beautiful girl. She then changed into a lady of immense light, all white, beautiful and young. I wanted to cry in awe looking at her. I wanted to stop the rosary and just see the apparition, but I continued to speak as she spoke through me.

    The whole rosary was on Our Lady of Fatima. She turned into Our Lady of Fatima, so white, so beautiful, young in her face. I have seen many statues of Our Lady of Fatima. I have seen her all white and adorned in light before—Our Lady of Light, that is what she called herself.

    On October 5, 1996 I saw her at Immaculata in the grotto. She had told me earlier that day she was Our Lady of the Rosary and gave a very strong message.

    I do not recall seeing her in an apparition in the Sorrowful Mother's statue since August 13, 1996.

    She was clearly, clearly, "Our Lady of Fatima" - LIVE. I saw her. I am in awe and wanted more, it was so beautiful!

    She may have appeared as Our Lady of Fatima the first time. She was covered with the greatest light—a light as from a fire and all white, but on July 5, 1994 when she first appeared,

    I did not know what Our Lady of Fatima looked like.

    I know tonight she was like every statue I have ever seen of Our Lady of Fatima, glistening, and all white. She had beads or embroidery around her cloak. I know she looked like the Lady of Fatima statues but LIVE.

    Every time we sang A Song From Jesus she would shine with the brightest light and her face would fill with the greatest joy.

    Even in a lighted hall, Mary would appear to me.

    There was no place for Jesus to be born—He was born the Light of the World in a stable in Bethlehem and the brightest star shone above His bed.

    This rosary on Fatima needs to circulate to the youth. Mary appeared to tell us to tell the youth this rosary. It does not have any message from Mary, only information from her for the youth.

    Mary's message for the youth: a rosary on Fatima—as she appeared to deliver it.

    This is a great comfort to me. She appeared, Our Lady of Fatima, to tell us that this is truly a major part of the completion of the Fatima message.

    The youth told me they could not hear the rosary, only the loud music of the band. I did not hear the band at all—but was in awe with Mary's appearing and the rosary!

    At one point I saw a little blond hair sticking out from under her veil at the top of her head.

    At least three times I saw this immense Lady of Light turn into Our Lady of Fatima. It was as if she was transformed from the Lady of Light into the Lady of Fatima.

    The room was a brightly lighted hallway with big balls of light that came down from the ceiling.

    She was adorned in light, brighter than the hallway, light as bright as seven suns, the Lady of Light.

    It is in her womb we see the light, the light of knowing God through the power of the Holy Spirit.

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."
