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,
Messenger: Our Lord has requested a special Mass in China, Indiana, on the 13th of each month (except for when the 13th falls on Sunday) for healing of hearts.
I have had this week, September 7, an immense presence of Mary from a painting of Mary done by Harold Kellner, our special artist. (Harold has painted the covers of the Blue Book II, Rosary Book, Children's Rosary Book and the painting of Lucia's vision of 1929). This picture is a large canvas of Mary on the window in Florida. The panes of glass were intensely illuminated around the image and Mary appeared to be raised from the picture. I understand from the experience granted more and more what Mary meant when she said her soul magnifies the Lord. I felt an immense connection to Our Lady in Clearwater, as I have often experienced from China, Indiana. Mary is present in a special way there, and I have had very many special gifts and intimate experiences with Mary there. On June 13, 1998, the front of the church was filled with the fragrance of roses when a tape was played of Father Carter singing.
On March 20, 1997, I had a most magnificent vision of Mary. We include this account of this vision here, from the Apostle Manual.
The rosary I received during this apparition is included here also. Mary wished we circulate this rosary to all of the youth. It is available as taped in Florida in a nightly 6:30 prayer meeting. This tape is available to you from the building in Florida or by writing Shepherds of Christ.
Messenger: I include a message here given from Jesus.
The Holy Spirit
Jesus speaks: "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!"
Messenger: The Holy Spirit is given to us to fashion us ever more according to the likeness of Jesus. And the more we are like Jesus, the more Jesus leads us to the Father. Do we, each day, pray to the Holy Spirit to be more open to His transforming influence? Do we strive each day to grow in union with Mary? The greater our union with Our Mother -the spouse of the Holy Spirit- the greater is the transforming action of the Holy Spirit within us.
Messenger: When we go to the Heart of Mary and partake in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, the Holy Spirit works more and more to transform us into a greater likeness of God.
The transformation is so powerful in the Mass. The more we become one in Him, which happens through dwelling in Their Hearts through consecration to Their Hearts, the more pure and holy our sacrifice. The more we are united to Him in a deep union in the Mass, the more His wants and desires become our wants and desires and He imprints special knowledge of Himself on our souls in this intense union.
Consecration takes us into deep oneness with Him.
We cannot of ourselves ever unite in such holiness to our divine Lord, but in Mary's Immaculate Heart we can unite in a deep union with Him.
This is when great grace is poured on the earth, when those participating in the Mass offer a most holy sacrifice.
Oh I love the Mass so much, I wish the priests would all consecrate their hearts so they would be so intimately united with Jesus when they celebrate the Mass.
Jesus speaks: My children,
I am Jesus, the priestly newsletter is my instrument to reach My priests with the consecration. I ask you to pray that your priests are holy priests, who celebrate the Mass in great oneness with Me and My Mother Mary. This will make the sacrifice most holy.
Please, My priests and people, begin prayer chapters and recite in the churches the prayers I have given you in the Shepherds of Christ Prayer Manual.
My dear priests, please read the priestly newsletter, consecrate your hearts with the consecration I have given to you in this newsletter and please pray the Shepherds of Christ prayers I have given to you.
Oh My holy priests, how I love you. I have called you and given you this great authority and power to administer the sacraments to My people.
The more you come, My beloved priests, in consecration, the more pure and holy will be the sacrifice you offer and great grace will be outpoured on the earth as the floodgates of heaven open when you celebrate the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
In this great oneness between the priest and Christ, your earth will experience great renewal with the grace released through the hands of consecrated priests.
Please help Me to reach all priests with the newsletter and the Consecration Prayers.
Oh earth, I love you so, I give you such gifts, they will come to a richer fullness and your earth will be blessed when you consecrate your hearts as Our Lady requested at Fatima.
You must obey the Lady of Fatima. She is the Queen of Peace.
Oh how deeply I love you, I want the deepest union with your soul. You are My beloved,
Mary appeared as Our Lady of Fatima for one hour and l5 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 l2 and l3, l996. She appeared all night and two times on August l3, l996, 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 l995 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, l996, 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 l3, l996.
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, l994 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.
" 'Tell everybody that God gives graces through the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Tell them to ask grace from her, and that the Heart of Jesus wishes to be venerated together with the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Ask them to plead for peace from the Immaculate Heart of Mary, for the Lord has confided the peace of the world to her.'27
This last message offers us an excellent opportunity to summarize the Fatima message. It tells us "that the Heart of Jesus wishes to be venerated together with the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
At the center of the veneration for which Our Lord calls is the act of consecration to His Sacred Heart and to Mary's Immaculate Heart." 28
"You have seen Hell, where the souls of poor sinners go. To save them, God wishes to establish, in the world, devotion to my Immaculate Heart. If people do what Itell you, many souls will be saved and there will be peace."31
We must obey Mary. The plan is the same plan today. We must reach the youth of this world with the consecration We must tell them to give their hearts to Jesus and Mary.
Song: "Oh Holy Dwelling Place of God "
