Message from Jesus on Mary's Birthday
September 8, 2003

Jesus speaks:   I want the Shepherds of Christ to own the

                            Virgin Mary building free and

                            clear and to obey the messages I

                            have given to reach the world -

                            to help bring to completion the

                            mission Mary began at Fatima.



September 8, 2003 message continues

Messenger:       Today we celebrate Mary's birthday.

                                Oh the beauty of the window on September 5, 2003.

                            Also yesterday Mary was sooooo beautiful on a Sunday

                            afternoon while I did the Blue Book Reading

                            at 1:00 and John read Fr. Carter's homily of

                            February 13, 1997.

                                We will put this on the web T.V. called "An

                            Afternoon with Mary". Many families had their

                            picture taken before the image. Some prayed

                            the rosary, I could hear the Spanish Hail Marys

                            being prayed before Mary, so very beautiful.

                                Water is a sign of purity and our water

                            broke last night on the eve of Mary's birthday.

                            It is very difficult when your water main breaks, or

                            computer doesn't work, even when your e-mail

                            goes out.



September 8, 2003 message continues

Messenger:             Margaret, our handmaid, battles in the hospital,

                            please pray for her. I really realize the temporariness

                            of this life here on earth.

                                Saturday we will do the 13th rosary in China

                            and have the Eucharist exposed all day Sunday

                            the 14th. It would be a very good time to

                            go to China for the weekend. The Eucharist

                            will be exposed on Friday, beginning with 

                            Mass at 12 noon China time. The Eucharist will 

                            be reposed on Monday, the feast of the Sorrowful Mother, 

                            before Mass at 1:30 China time. Please come to the retreat 

                            if you can. If you want to sign up for adoration, 

                            call Sheila at the Cincinnati Store 1-513-777-3720.  

                            The big prayer service on the 13th, with Rita Ring, at 12:00 China

                            time, prayers later. The Eucharist will be exposed

                            on the 14th. Many people have been called in

                            China. And some have had healing,

                            China is Jesus' Eucharistic Center. We

                            will pray deeply for the priests, the Church

                            and the world.



September 8, 2003 message continues

Messenger:             I want that grace to be outpoured on the earth,

                            praying for peace and love and joy. I want the world to

                            be as God wants us to be. I am so sorry for offending

                            God. We must pray as the people of the earth and

                            tell God we are sorry for offending Him. We pray

                            and we unite to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and

                            we say we are sorry.

                                We say we are sorry at Mass in the beginning

                            of the Mass then we unite to the Holy Sacrifice

                            of the Mass in oneness praying for the priests,

                            the Church and the world.

                                The priest celebrates the Mass, we offer

                            sacrifice. The Mass is the sacrifice of Calvary

                            sacramentally made present at Mass.

                            Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world,

                                have mercy on us.

                            Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world,

                                have mercy on us.

                            Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world,

                                grant us peace.

                            And the Father accepts the sacrifice

                                The Father loves us so much. He gives

                                    us His only begotten Son.

                                Jesus comes to me in the Eucharist.

                                I receive the one, true God.

                                I receive Jesus, the Son of God.

                            Mary Mother of the Eucharist

                                help us to be pure and love Jesus

                            Clear — Water —

                            Mary appeared in Clear — Water.

                            Come to Clear — Water — see how the

                                Father has allowed Mary to appear.

Father Carter's last homily

in China, Indiana

September 8, 2000


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."

Messenger:         Oh Mary Our Mother we love you

                            Sing:  Immaculate Mary

                                      Hail Holy Queen

                            Give Mary love on her birthday.

                                Our relationship with God is

                                   one of deep love. We want

                                    to have this personal

                                    relationship with each

                                    Person of the Trinity.

                                God loves us so much.

                            Oh Jesus, outpour Your grace to us —

                                help us to be holy and love You —

                                help our focus to be on Your will.

Jesus speaks:    My child,

                                Satan can attack people through memories

                                    and feelings and they give into him.

                                    You must pray to do God's will.

                                    You have a free will.

                                    No matter how much you are tempted —

                                        you do not have to give into satan.

                                    Peer pressure can cause people to sin.

                                    Others want recognition for their

                                        own selfish gain.

                                    Come to Me, My little child —

                                    Strive to be holy like your Mother,


                                    Mary is your Mother and she loves you.


Luke 1: 46-55

                    The Magnificat

And Mary said:

My soul proclaims
    the greatness of the Lord
and my spirit rejoices
    in God my Saviour;
because he has looked upon
    the humiliation of his servant.
Yes, from now onwards
    all generations will call me blessed,
for the Almighty
    has done great things for me.
Holy is his name,
and his faithful love extends age after age
    to those who fear him.
He has used the power of his arm,
he has routed the arrogant of heart.
He has pulled down princes
    from their thrones
        and raised high the lowly.
He has filled the starving with good things,
    sent the rich away empty.
He has come to the help
    of Israel his servant,
        mindful of his faithful love
—according to the promise
    he made to our ancestors—
of his mercy to Abraham
    and to his descendants for ever.

Messenger:            Today Jesus told me to go to St. Vincent's. After Mass

                            He told me to go to the chapel. I remember the time,

                            recorded in the Blue Book, when Jesus talked to me

                            and walked next to me as I went in 1994.

                                Today I had such a presence of Him within

                            me as I walked after Holy Communion to the chapel.

                            Today I went to the chapel and the priest came in

                            and exposed the Eucharist. I love to be here when

                            the Eucharist is exposed. It is such a gift to be

                            with Jesus before the Blessed Sacrament.

                                I know I receive lots of grace at Mass and

                            before the tabernacle and exposed Eucharist.

                                O Sacred Heart —

                                Oh Love Divine

                                How dear You are to me.

                                I see the host, I know You're here —

                                    to love and care for me.

                            Oh Jesus, I love You.

                            Oh God outpour Your grace to the souls of this

                                earth, so they will see and know what a treasure

                                it is to have Jesus in the Eucharist.

I Love You

(Letter for Front of B.B. II)
April 13, 1994

How, child, do I, Jesus, tell you I love you? You hold on to silly things, when God is in your midst and is ardently loving you. I am Jesus Christ, the Son of God. I am writing to each precious child this day. I am on fire for love of you. I remain in the Eucharist to be with you with My ardent love. I did not want to leave My beloved ones at the Last Supper. I love you so, My dear and ardently loved children. I remain with you this day in the Blessed Sacrament, the same Jesus Who died a brutal death on the cross.

Do you know I am truly present there? Do you know that God waits every day for you in the tabernacle? Do you comprehend even a minute amount of My love? You will never on earth know how I love you.

I, Jesus, truly the Son of God, came to earth a man and suffered a brutal death for love of you. I love you so much! I remain with you this day. I long for your love. I want you to come and be with Me in front of the tabernacle. I wait, I yearn for you to come and whisper your love to Me. I am a Person and I love you this day with such an ardent, on-fire love. No human could ever compare a speck to My love for you.

I wait, little ones, in the tabernacle. I wait for you to come and receive Me in Communion. I want you to want Me so much that you cannot wait to come and receive Me. I want to be the love, the Center of your life!

I am Jesus. I am the Son of God. I am writing to you this day. I want to possess your very soul and live in you. I have all you need, sweet ones. Oh, you are so blind! I long for your union with Me. I wrote the book on love. I instituted it, yet you go to the world for your love and do not even come to Me! Oh, I love you, little ones. Little ones, beloved of the Father, loved by the Holy Spirit, mothered by My very own mother, what more can I say? The rest is up to you!

I give you your will with such love and I want your love, freely given. I am God. What do you think you could ever need that I do not give you? I am the Savior of this world. I am Jesus, the Son of God. I am waiting for you. I am longing for you. I am yearning for you. I am God. I have all you ever will need!

Surrender this life to Me. Pray My prayer for union with Me. I want to possess your soul and operate from your very being. I am Jesus. I am the Son of God. I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I am Who am. I died and rose on the third day.

Harken to My call, harken to My pleading. Spend your days in love with Me. Nothing matters unless it is rooted in Me and rooted in My love. I am the Son of God. I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I love you with the tenderest love. I am waiting this day for you, My beloved one. Come to Me for I am the tenderest of all hearts. I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

Picture of the Sacred Heart of JesusI Died In Peace

August 31, 1993

Jesus speaks: You are hurried. Relax and soak in My peace. Only My peace will quiet you. Your days are full of changes. You are adapting well, but always come back to My peace. Breathe in Jesus, out anxiety and fear. In Jesus, out anxiety. Quiet your mind and focus just on My face. See My sorrowful face, see Me with thorns. Bring yourself back to the Passion. It is because of you and your sins I suffered and died for all My children. How great is My love for you that I would die for love of you. Think of this-that you have a friend Who died for you. Oh, how I love, how I long to be with you to tell you of My infinite love for you. Your human minds cannot even comprehend My Divine love! In your deepest meditation you couldn't come close to all the love I have for you. But you must keep trying to know and feel this love. This is your salvation. This is what sets you free in a world of hate. You can always be drawn back to My love and know it is waiting for you always. It never stops. It is infinite. This is what comforts your troubled soul. When they scorn you and mock you, think of Me loving you. I am the all-perfect love. Always come back to Me. Don't let the world get to you. I am here, with peace, love, joy, rapture, being connected to your heart so divinely. I love you so much! I wish you would totally feel this love the way I want you to.

The only way you can experience Me more is to let go of the world more. In this bustling world, My peace reigns. It is in the quiet of your heart. It is within you and you can stay connected at every moment. You never have to lose this peace no matter what goes on around you. You can be a pillar of peace because I am peace. I am joy. I died in peace and dignity. My peace was not shattered even to death. You can experience this peace if you stay in Me. It is My gift I give you. Remember I was at peace at My death. You are being strengthened in your trials. You are growing in My peace. You are learning not to shatter to anything, that if you stay rooted in Me I never leave you and you remain at peace though the earth be shaking. For I am He Who lives in you. You can have this same consistency, but you must stay so connected to Me every minute, every second. Breathe in Jesus, out fear. Look at My face. It is there for you. Look and see Me, I am your rock. You will not falter or fall on your face. Your heart is rooted in My peace and My love. It is consistent, it is everlasting, it is intense and it is My gift to My children who remain fixed in Me. I love you.

Jesus speaks:     Some people do not get it.

                            All the messages I give and they remain

                                the same way.

                            I come to show love to the world.

                            My Centers are to be centers of hope and love.

                            My Centers are to be lights in the darkness.

                            I called a man to serve me and he acted, day

                                after day, as if it was a chore and

                                it couldn't be done.

                            Satan tempts people to give into their imperfections.

                            How you act is you.

                            Step back and look at your attitude.

                            Your Mother is the perfect handmaid of the Lord

                                trying to get others to agree with you that

                                you are a victim, day after day, year after

                                year is a PIT.

                            Stop it I say be about My work.

                            Satan ties up your time while you give

                                into him.

                            Go to Mass — pray to be clean

                                               — pray for forgiveness of your sins

                                               — do not judge or say others thought
                                                     this when they didn't

                                               — don't waste the precious days
                                                     of your lives, when you could
                                                     serve Me.

                            Look at the vineyard, look at the field

                            Where one plants crops —

                            look at the bridge builder —

                                one builds a bridge —

                                    another giving into satan and self-focused

                                    tears it down.

                            Mary's image is such a gift, I have given to the

                                Shepherds of Christ.

                                Tell people with enthusiasm.

                                Be holy.

                                Do My work.

                                Pass out the wallet pictures.

                                I have entrusted this mission to you.

Messenger:        I was at Mary's image in Clearwater all

                                weekend, people came and said

                                how it changed their lives and were

                                healed there.

                            It was awesome. I was there under the warm

                                sun yesterday and it felt so good.

                            I felt surrounded by love and secure.

                            I felt the beauty of that enormous vision —

                                so big and it seemed so warm.

Words of Jesus to Members of

"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."

Messenger:        Also the message on the important Fatima anniversary.


October 13, 1994

The Birth of the Full Ministries
of the Shepherds of Christ

    "I wish to share with you part of a message which Jesus gave us on October 13, 1994. The message tells us about the expansion of the Shepherds of Christ movement:

    'My beloved priest-companion, today I come to you with another mission. I am asking you to establish Shepherds of Christ Ministries. At My request you have already begun the priestly newsletter, "Shepherds of Christ", and the prayer chapters, Shepherds of Christ Associates...

    'I am giving you this message on this day, the 77th Anniversary of the Great Apparition at Fatima, because of the close connection between the Shepherds of Christ movement and the Fatima message. The Fatima message is centered in devotion to My Heart and My Mother's Heart, especially in consecration to Our Hearts. Shepherds of Christ Ministries is also centered in devotion to Our Hearts. I will use Shepherds of Christ Ministries as a great instrument in helping to bring about the triumph of the Immaculate Heart and the reign of My Sacred Heart. When this occurs, My Church and the world will be experiencing the great era of peace promised by My Mother at Fatima.

    'Today, then, October 13, 1994, the 77th Anniversary of the Great Apparition at Fatima, marks the birth of Shepherds of Christ Ministries. I pour forth the great love of My Sacred Heart to all. I am Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the flock.'

Messenger:        Today we celebrate Mary's birthday.

                            Let's say yes with all our heart to this mission.

                                Fr. Carter saw himself as a little baby

                            in Mary's arms. He always said, I'm just

                            a little baby in Mary's arms.


Excerpt from Tell My People

Spiritual Childhood

Mary: "My beloved priest-son, how I love to enfold you in my arms as my little child! Enfolded in my arms in my maternal embrace, I press you against my Immaculate Heart. I draw you within my Heart. There, through my maternal intercession, I clothe you with Jesus' graces. As you dwell in my Heart, I place you ever more deeply within Jesus' Heart and there the Holy Spirit fashions you increasingly in the image of my Son. As you grow in the likeness of Jesus, He takes you ever closer to the Father.

"Thus, as you grow in the sense of your helplessness without God, the stronger you become in Jesus. Childlike thus becomes strength. The smaller you become in living out spiritual childhood, the taller you stand beside Jesus. Weakness becomes strength, your sense of helplessness becomes spiritual maturity!

"Tell all my children about the wonders of spiritual childhood! Tell them to come to me and I will school them in its ways. How I love all my children! Oh, how I love to exercise my motherhood toward them all!"

Reflection: In the Gospel, Jesus speaks emphatically to us about spiritual childhood: "At this time the disciples came to Jesus and said, 'Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?' So he called a little child to him and set the child in front of them. Then he said, 'I tell you solemnly, unless you change and become like little children you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. And so, the one who makes himself as little as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven'" (Matthew 18:1-4).

                                We were put here to work.


Genesis 3: 14-19  

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

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.

                                Sacrifice of Isaac


Genesis 22: 1-14

It happened some time later that God put Abraham to the test. ‘Abraham, Abraham!’ he called. ‘Here I am,’ he replied. God said, ‘Take your son, your only son, your beloved Isaac, and go to the land of Moriah, where you are to offer him as a burnt offering on one of the mountains which I shall point out to you.’ 

    Early next morning Abraham saddled his donkey and took with him two of his servants and his son Isaac. He chopped wood for the burnt offering and started on his journey to the place which God had indicated to him. On the third day Abraham looked up and saw the place in the distance. Then Abraham said to his servants, ‘Stay here with the donkey. The boy and I are going over there; we shall worship and then come back to you.’ 

    Abraham took the wood for the burnt offering, loaded it on Isaac, and carried in his own hands the fire and the knife. Then the two of them set out together. Isaac spoke to his father Abraham. ‘Father?’ he said. ‘Yes, my son,’ he replied. ‘Look,’ he said, ‘here are the fire and the wood, but where is the lamb for the burnt offering?’ Abraham replied, ‘My son, God himself will provide the lamb for the burnt offering.’ And the two of them went on together. 

    When they arrived at the place which God had indicated to him, Abraham built an altar there, and arranged the wood. Then he bound his son and put him on the altar on top of the wood. Abraham stretched out his hand and took the knife to kill his son. 

    But the angel of Yahweh called to him from heaven. ‘Abraham, Abraham!’ he said. ‘Here I am,’ he replied. ‘Do not raise your hand against the boy,’ the angel said. ‘Do not harm him, for now I know you fear God. You have not refused me your own beloved son.’ Then looking up, Abraham saw a ram caught by its horns in a bush. Abraham took the ram and offered it as a burnt offering in place of his son. Abraham called this place ‘Yahweh provides’, and hence the saying today: ‘On the mountain Yahweh provides.’

Messenger:             They persecuted Jesus and they put Him to 


                                Look what they did to Joseph.


Genesis 37: 27-28

  Come, let us sell him to the Ishmaelites, then we shall not have laid hands on him ourselves. After all, he is our brother, and our own flesh.’ His brothers agreed.
   Now some Midianite merchants were passing, and they pulled Joseph out of the well. They sold Joseph to the Ishmaelites for twenty shekels of silver, and these men took Joseph to Egypt.


Messenger:             Moses in the basket


Exodus 2: 1-8

There was a man descended from Levi who had taken a woman of Levi as his wife. She conceived and gave birth to a son and, seeing what a fine child he was, she kept him hidden for three months. When she could hide him no longer, she got a papyrus basket for him; coating it with bitumen and pitch, she put the child inside and laid it among the reeds at the River’s edge. His sister took up position some distance away to see what would happen to him. 

    Now Pharaoh’s daughter went down to bathe in the river, while her maids walked along the riverside. Among the reeds she noticed the basket, and she sent her maid to fetch it. She opened it and saw the child: the baby was crying. Feeling sorry for it, she said, ‘This is one of the little Hebrews.’ The child’s sister then said to Pharaoh’s daughter, ‘Shall I go and find you a nurse among the Hebrew women to nurse the child for you?’ ‘Yes,’ said Pharaoh’s daughter, and the girl went and called the child’s own mother.


Messenger:             God speaks to Moses from the Burning Bush


Exodus 3: 4

When Yahweh saw him going across to look, God called to him from the middle of the bush. ‘Moses, Moses!’ he said. ‘Here I am,’ he answered.


Messenger:             The Angel of God and the First Passover


Exodus 12: 21-29

Moses summoned all the elders of Israel and said to them, ‘Go and choose a lamb or kid for your families, and kill the Passover victim. Then take a bunch of hyssop, dip it in the blood that is in the basin, and with the blood from the basin touch the lintel and both door–posts; then let none of you venture out of the house till morning. Then, when Yahweh goes through Egypt to strike it, and sees the blood on the lintel and on both door–posts, he will pass over the door and not allow the Destroyer to enter your homes and strike. You will observe this as a decree binding you and your children for all time, and when you have entered the country which Yahweh will give you, as he has promised, you will observe this ritual. And when your children ask you, "What does this ritual mean?" you will tell them, "It is the Passover sacrifice in honour of Yahweh who passed over the houses of the Israelites in Egypt, and struck Egypt but spared our houses." ’ And the people bowed in worship. The Israelites then went away and did as Yahweh had ordered Moses and Aaron.


Messenger:             Manna in the desert


Exodus 16: 4, 14

    Yahweh then said to Moses, ‘Look, I shall rain down bread for you from the heavens. Each day the people must go out and collect their ration for the day; I propose to test them in this way to see whether they will follow my law or not.

When the layer of dew lifted, there on the surface of the desert was something fine and granular, as fine as hoarfrost on the ground.


Messenger:             Moses breaks the tablets


Exodus 32: 19

    And there, as he approached the camp, he saw the calf and the groups dancing. Moses blazed with anger. He threw down the tablets he was holding, shattering them at the foot of the mountain.

Excerpt from the Red Rosary Book

I was told to go to Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center to pray the rosary with my children. There were people in the front of the church, so we decided to pray the rosary in the back before the Sorrowful Mother statue. I had the following vision at the end of the rosary.

The statue of the Sorrowful Mother was lit up as if she had fire around her. The light was very bright. Her whole gown was all-white, but the statue's gown is blue and pink. She was all aglow. It looked like the glow that comes off of a fire. Her face kept changing but remained totally sorrowful-the sorrow of an older woman. She was in such pain and sorrow! (It was hard to explain how she looked-extremely pained!) Her face looked as though she was in such pain that she could hardly bear it.

The vision remained like this for about ten minutes, having begun during the last Hail Mary of the Sorrowful Mysteries of the rosary. She was holding something-it was all bright white-the brightest light ever!

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

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.
