The Holy Spirit

Jesus: "My beloved friend, tell My people to pray daily to the Holy Spirit. They are to pray for an increase in His gifts. My people must realize that the Holy Spirit comes to transform them. The Spirit desires to transform you more and more according to My image. Those who are docile to His touch become increasingly shaped in My likeness. He performs this marvel within Mary's Immaculate Heart. The more one dwells in My Mother's Heart, the more active are the workings of the Spirit. The Spirit leads Mary to place you within My own Heart. In both Our Hearts, then, your transformation continues. The more you are formed after My own Heart, the more I lead you to the bosom of My Father. Tell My people all this. Tell them to pray daily for a greater appreciation of these wondrous gifts. I am Lord and Master. All who come to My Heart will be on fire to receive the gifts of the Spirit in ever greater measure! I love and bless My people!"

                           on that day to deliver his last
                           precious homily that day.



September 8, 2000

Last Homily of Father Carter's

delivered in China, Indiana



Matthew 1:18-23

Joseph adopts Jesus as his son

This is how Jesus Christ came to be born. His mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph; but before they came to live together she was found to be with child through the Holy Spirit. Her husband Joseph, being an upright man and wanting to spare her disgrace, decided to divorce her informally. He had made up his mind to do this when suddenly the angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, ‘Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because she has conceived what is in her by the Holy Spirit. She will give birth to a son and you must name him Jesus, because he is the one who is to save his people from their sins.’ Now all this took place to fulfil what the Lord had spoken through the prophet:

Look! the virgin is with child
    and will give birth to a son
whom they will call Immanuel,

a name which means ‘God–is–with–us’.


Father Carter's homily

    We notice that the Church in Her liturgy for the celebration of the birthday, the Birth of Mary, immediately puts her with Jesus:

    "She will give birth to a son and you must name him Jesus, because he is the one who is to save his people from their sins." (Mt 1:21) – words from today's Gospel.

    And so the Church reminds us that Mary was born for the sake of Jesus. Again, in celebrating her birth, the Church links her very, very directly with Jesus, yes, this is the reason for her birth: to be Mother of Jesus, and in doing that, everything else about her takes its proper place.

    And just as Mary was dedicated entirely to Jesus and to His cause, we in giving her a birthday present of the highest value can only promise her, "Mary, as you were completely dedicated to Jesus, help me be completely dedicated to Him. You were His first and perfect disciple. Teach me to imitate you in the putting on of Christ."

end of Father Carter's homily



September 7, 2001 message continues

Mary speaks:  He drove the long drive 1 1/2 hours down,
                           1 1/2 hours back - three hours to
                           celebrate this special feast.

                        Here are the pictures I requested be taken
                           September 7, 2000 for that day.


September 7, 2000 September 7, 2000


Mary speaks: I am sorrowful for my children, I beg
                            you to reach the nursing homes
                            with these videos and these

                        My Son gave beautiful messages in
                            1995 to reach the nursing

                        Now I speak from my image site
                            in Florida to them and you
                            can help to fill these elderly
                            people hearts with joy and

                        These videos can be given as gifts with
                        a small television - VCR combination
                        for many elderly to use at home.

                        The important thing is to get the
                            elderly focused on heaven,
                            praying for the Movement's intentions,
                            the priests, the Church and
                            the world.

                        It is such a help to the elderly if
                            they pray the rosary.

                        Many books of rosary meditations
                            are available, but they
                            can listen to audio tapes
                            and video tapes and pray
                            with them.

                        Elderly love the rosary once they
                            begin praying it.

                        Coloring books can be used as meditation

                        The elderly must be reached.

                        I ask you to help my Son's Movement
                           Shepherds of Christ to secure the image
                           building permanently for
                           this purpose.

                        I am Our Lady of Clearwater, Our
                           Lady of Fatima in the Americas.

                        Pray through my powerful intercession
                           as Our Lady of Clearwater.

                        Very many videos will be available
                           for weekly or bi-monthly or
                           monthly visits to the
                           nursing homes.

                        A Mass will soon be available for
                           the elderly, ill and nursing home

                        Please help me.

                        On this day September 7, 2001,

                        I ask you for help to help me reach
                           the world with this message.

                        Our Lady of China



Mary speaks: I hold my Son in my arms.

                        I love my children with the most tender



Mary speaks: I appeared over 450 times as the
                           sorrowful mother, lady of light
                           for my heart is pierced
                           for my children that
                           will lose their souls,
                                I CRY TO YOU
                                        TO HELP ME.



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

Mary speaks: 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.
