The Glorious Mysteries
- Jesus has told us how He is the vine and we are the branches.
We must stay rooted in Him so that His life flows through us.
We cannot become disconnected from the vine. We are one, joined
- Hail Mary....
- Jesus speaks: I am calling you, My special apostles,
to this farm on this day of October l3th, l996. I will fill your
hearts with the fire of My love, and the fire of this love will
spread across the earth and many hearts will know My love and
be touched through you. Open wide your heart during this rosary
that I may speak to you and tell you of My burning love for you.
I am giving to you an abundant sharing in My life. Open your heart.
I am knocking at the door of your heart. You must not close your
heart. Open wide that I can come in and fill you with My divine
- Oh, My beloved Jesus, I see You glistening and covered in
white. I know that You rose on the third day and that there is
such glory in the resurrection. My life is a constant death and
resurrection as I live in You.
- Focus on the body of a man hanging on the cross. You see this
vividly before your eyes- a man covered with blood, His head crowned
with thorns. He is beaten and withered. This is the Almighty God,
Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who came and gave Himself for love
of us. Focus on this picture in your mind. Make it so clear as
if you were there, as if you are seeing this with your eyes, at
this moment, this man on the cross, with flesh covered with blood.
Jesus died. He was locked in a tomb for three days. Now see next
to this picture of this man the glorified body of Jesus, His glorified
wounds, as He comes forth from the tomb. The Almighty God, our
beloved and loving Jesus- He is alive, He is with us this day.
He lives in us in a special way. When we are baptized and in the
state of grace, God is alive within us and He shares with us His
divine life. We are Christ to one another for He is alive in us.
When I talk to you, I am seeing the Jesus that is alive inside
of you. We are all gathered as one body. We see Jesus. We see
Him dead on the cross. This is how much that He loved us. Do we
not know that He died for us because of this great love, that
He wants us to be one body? I see the vine and the branches and
I see how they are so connected that the life and the fluid runs
through the vine to the branches- it's all one. We are one in
Him. He has given us a sharing in His divine life. Look at us,
how separate we are with each other, how we hold ourselves at
arms length and separate ourselves from one another. We are called
in the Shepherds of Christ Movement to be one flock with one shepherd.
The Almighty God is alive and He lives in us. I went to Mass and
Communion this morning and I received the Body of Christ; you
receive the Body of Christ. He gives to us His life. He gives
to us Himself. We must strive in this Movement to be one, to live
this consecration in our lives that we are one with each other,
that we put aside all of the tauntings by the devil to divide
us, that we realize that division is from Satan. As we march across
this United States and this world, we will carry the fire of His
love, alive inside of us, for He is alive and He lives within
our hearts. We are called to this special mission as His apostles
to carry this message, this message of His love to the world.
Oh, Jesus, how tenderly I love you. You are alive in my very being.
You are all that I live for and I want to carry this message out
to the world for you have delivered this message with such love.
You are so good. Fill our hearts with the fire of Your love and
give us Your abundant grace that we will have the courage to carry
this message to the ends of the earth. And there was darkness.
I see the darkness in the night, but the light steals across the
sky and the fire of His love spreads across this earth as His
life lives in us and many are touched by the fire of His love.
Song: Spirit Song
- We are not like the world, we see this world and it is Godless.
In many cases the world has turned away from God. It is at Fatima
that Mary said that we must stop offending God. She has given
to us the peace plan that we will have peace on this earth- it
is in consecrating our hearts. She said until a sufficient number
have consecrated their hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary
we will not have peace in the world. She said we must pray the
rosary, that we must observe the First Saturday devotion, that
we must make reparation to Their Hearts. Why, why do we not do
what Mary is asking us to do? It is so simple.
- Mary appeared at Fatima in July, 1917 and she told the children,
"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 I tell you, many souls
will be saved and there will be peace. The war (World War I then
raging) is going to end, but if people do not stop offending God,
another and worse one will begin in the reign of Pius XI. When
you shall see a night illuminated by an unknown light (January
2, 1938) know that this is a great sign that God gives you that
He is going to punish the world for its many crimes by means of
war, hunger and persecution of the Church and the Holy Father."1
Mary has appeared to me, almost every day from July the 5th of
1994 until September the 5th of 1995-14 months-this same cry that
came from our Heavenly Mother at Fatima, that we must quit offending
God, that we must do what she is telling us to do. This is the
peace plan. He is alive and He lives in us. We are being asked
to go into the world and to spread His love to the far corners
of the earth.
- He gives to us His life in the Eucharist. Who are we that
the Almighty God gives to us, human persons, a sharing in His
divine life. He is treated with such indifference and such neglect.
If we knew, if we could see, the glories of the Almighty God,
but we are so blind in our sight. We do not see and we do not
hear. We must pray for the grace that we will see, that we will
be the apostles that He is calling to carry this message out to
- He rose from the dead and He appeared to the apostles. We
see Thomas- he did not believe. How are we this day? Do we believe?
The Almighty God is truly present in His divinity and humanity
in the Holy Eucharist and He is outpouring His grace, His life
to us. Do we believe? Do we believe that He is truly present and
that He is giving Himself to us this day? He is here! He is truly
present in the Eucharist and He is alive in our hearts!
- He laments and laments how He is treated as a dead object.
He is ignored in the Tabernacle. The Almighty God is here. We
spend all this money and go to concerts, go to football games,
all this time in recreation and the Almighty God is ignored. Mary
appeared in 1917 and said that we must stop offending God. Look
at our world. He has called us in the Shepherds of Christ Movement
and is giving to us abundant grace that we will grow more and
more in our relationship with Him and we will be His leaders going
into this world carrying the fire of His love to the far corners
of the earth. He is alive. He says, "I am the Way, the Truth
and the Life and I am with you this day. Open your eyes and see.
Open your hearts and live for I AM the Way, the Truth and the
Our Lord Ascends Into Heaven
- He took His apostles out to the place of His Ascension and
He raised His arms and He ascended into heaven. Do we see the
glories of these mysteries, that the Almighty God rose from the
dead, that He ascended into heaven? We do not see the glory. We
are so focused on the details in our lives. We see with such limited
vision. The Almighty God is alive and He is here and He is calling
us. Each one of us has been called to this farm, this day, for
He knew you would answer this calling. He knew that in your heart
you want the deepest love affair with Him, that you want to be
one with Him. He has called you as His apostles to carry out His
love to the world, to light up the darkness with His life alive
- We look out and we see the beauty of this day, with the sun
in the sky and the light, and all the colors in the trees. We
see the life in each blade of grass and in each leaf on the tree
and tonight the darkness will cover this earth and although the
trees and the leaves are still there, and this beautiful river,
we will not be able to see with this clarity. The earth this day
is covered with darkness for many souls have cut themselves off
from the vine. They are withering and dying in their hearts. He
is calling us and giving us abundant grace that we will be one
in Him, that He will live in us, and as we live on this earth,
He will touch others through us. This is a tremendous calling
from the Almighty God that we have been chosen and called and
given this grace to be so close to Him.
- Song: A Song From Jesus
- Song: Little Child
- Hail Mary...
- On Ascension Thursday, 1995, I went through such an experience.
First, Jesus took me to the height of heaven and I experienced
such ecstasy. I was at church and later that day when I went home
I was given great anguish and suffering and He called out, "I
am alive, I am alive, I am alive!" and He said that He wanted
Fr. Carter in the Shepherds of Christ Movement to reach the souls
on this earth with the fire of His love. It was in such pain and
suffering that I was buckled over and hearing the Almighty God
call out, "I am alive, I am alive, I am alive." How
do we treat Jesus? Do we treat Him as if He is alive? Do we love
Him with all our heart, our whole soul and our whole being? Do
you hear the laments of our beloved Savior, the Almighty God,
who gave Himself and died on the cross? He is alive. He wants
this burning love affair with us. Many of the Masses, many of
our prayers, are said with lack of emotion in our hearts. He wants
us to love Him with the deepest burning love, not to go through
the motions. Every prayer is a love affair with our beloved Savior.
The Rosary we sing- (the Rosary song), and He wants us to say
from our heart, the bottom of our heart, "Jesus, we love
You. Mary, we love you. Oh, the Rosary, the Rosary, is the love
of Their Two Hearts. Oh the Rosary, the Rosary, is the love of
Their Two Hearts." In the September 10th rosary that we circulated
to you, Jesus laments how He does not receive a drop of heartfelt
love from many of His beloved religious that He has chosen and
loves so much. This is why He has called us in the Shepherds of
Christ Movement, to pray, to pray for His beloved religious. He
loves them so much and He wants, He wants this burning love from
them, His chosen ones. We are gathered here for this reason- to
realize that the Almighty God really is talking to us, that He
has called us, that this is an important mission, that we need
to pray so fervently for our priests and our religious, that this
is His instrument, the Shepherds of Christ Movement, to help in
the renewal of the Church and the world.
- Jesus speaks: I am alive, I am alive, I am alive, and
I live in your heart. Open your heart and let Me come inside of
you. I want to touch My beloved souls this day. Will you say "yes"
to this calling? Will you go to the ends of the earth and spread
this movement? Will you pray, pray fervently for this intention:
to lead the religious to the fires of love, found in My Most Sacred
- Song: Spirit Song Jesus speaks: I am alive, I am alive,
I am alive, and I live in your hearts. Response: Jesus
no longer walks this earth, but He is alive and He lives in us.
- Song: Come Unto Me All Who Are Weary.. Jesus speaks:
I am alive, I am alive, I am alive, and I am the Almighty God,
all powerful. You see with such limited vision. You must surrender
and let go and let Me run your life. You are holding on, My beloved
ones. You must realize that I am all powerful, all mighty, and
that I am guarding you and I am with you in a special way this
- Jesus speaks: Carry My light into the darkness. Response:
And the light came across the dark sky and many were touched with
the fire of His love. Because you answered this call, the call
to be His apostle, to pray for the priests, to help spread the
consecration as Our Lady has asked us at Fatima. We will not have
peace in the world until our hearts are filled with love, and
she says until a sufficient number have consecrated their hearts
to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, we will not have peace. This
is the good news. As the Movement spreads across this earth, as
hearts are consecrated to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, we will
have the peace that Our Lady has promised at Fatima but we must
do as she has told us to do. We must consecrate our hearts and
spread this to the world. We must pray the rosary, observe the
First Saturday devotion, and make reparation to Their Hearts.
The Descent of the Holy Spirit Upon the Apostles
- "When Pentecost day came round, they had all met together,
when suddenly there came from heaven a sound as of a violent wind
which filled the entire house in which they were sitting; and
there appeared to them tongues as of fire; these separated and
came to rest on the head of each of them. They were all filled
with the Holy Spirit and began to speak different languages as
the Spirit gave them power to express themselves." (Acts
- Jesus speaks: I call you, I call you, I call you, My
beloved apostles. I call you to go out to the ends of the earth
and to preach My love. I am longing and thirsting for My beloved
souls to come to Me. Bring to Me the souls, the souls I love.
I am Jesus, do you hear this call? Will you bring to Me the souls
of My loved ones? Will you pray for the priests and the religious,
for it is through them that I will feed the hungry souls? Response:
Look at the priest, see the priest in the Mass, the priest that
consecrates the bread and wine into the Body and Blood of Christ.
He gives to us the Body and Blood of Christ. See Jesus in the
priest, giving us His Body. Each one of us go to the communion
rail and God gives to us Himself. We are one in Him. Jesus has
told me how we sit in church, like stiffs, all separate, going
through the motions. This is not love! He wants heartfelt love
in our hearts, to realize that the Almighty God, in the greatest
act of love gave Himself as a sacrifice on the cross and this
sacrifice is sacramentally made present in every Mass. The Mass
is a love affair with God. The deepest union with Him is to give
ourselves to Mary, for we are sinners. She is the pure and sinless
one. We give ourselves to Mary and we go to Him in her pure and
sinless heart, to the very depth of His Heart. He is alive and
we are the apostles that must carry this life into the world in
our hearts. He is operating through us. Will we say "yes"?
Do we see the world, do we see the suffering children, do we see
the babies that are murdered in the wombs of their mother, do
we see what the children are being fed on television...but we
hold back our tongues about the love of God? When I began to receive
these messages, for six weeks before, constantly I heard, "Feed
the hungry, feed the hungry!" I prayed and I prayed and I
prayed to know His will. In September of 1991, He called out to
me, for six weeks, constantly, "Feed the hungry!" The
world is starving for the love of God! Let us feed the hungry
with this love of God. Let us pray for the priests for He gives
- We encounter Christ through the sacraments. His life is outpoured
in the Mass. Grace is outpoured in part according to the disposition
of the person offering sacrifice. As we become one in Their Hearts,
as the priest becomes one in Their Hearts, consecrated to the
Hearts of Jesus and Mary, an immense amount of grace is released
on the earth. It is through this that many souls will know God,
that many souls will be saved. We help in the act of redemption.
We must spread this Movement to the far corners of the earth.
It is as Mary said: we must consecrate our hearts to the Hearts
of Jesus and Mary. This is the key- Mary's heart is the gateway
to going to the deepest chamber of the Heart of Christ.
- We see how Peter denied Christ. We see how the apostles were
afraid. We see Thomas did not believe. We see them stumble and
fall and run away, and then we see them, after the Holy Spirit
descended upon them. They went out into the world and thousands
were converted. They were filled with the fire of Gods love. Let
us, God, be filled with the fire of Your love. Dear Holy Spirit,
give us this fearlessness to go into this darkened world and to
carry the light, to carry the messages of Your burning love to
the souls that are starving and are longing to be fed.
- Song: Lady of Fatima Jesus speaks: I am alive,
I am alive, I am alive, and I live in you. Open your heart that
I may touch so many of My beloved souls through you. I am Jesus.
Will you say "yes", My beloved apostles?
- Look into the eyes of the children that are suffering this
day. Mary has sent us on a special mission to spread the rosaries
and the consecration to the children in the schools. Do you see
the children, the children in the schools today that are hard
in their hearts, the children that are suffering, that do not
know the love of God? Mary is giving us special help to spread
these rosaries in the schools. She wants this all over the United
States. For nine months Mary asked me to spread the rosary and
the consecration to the children. We are the apostles that He
is sending into the world this day. This is what Mary and Jesus
are asking us to do. It is so little- to spread these rosaries
and consecrations to the schools, but Mary said at Fatima we will
not have peace in the world until we do what she has told us to
do. The Shepherds of Christ Movement is a great part of the completion
of the Fatima message. These rosaries are a big part of the completion
of the Fatima message. We must carry these rosaries to our children
in the schools.
- Satan presses down on us and tries to stop us. The pressure
that has gone on just to have this today is unbelievable, how
Satan can try to stop this. Look at the Fatima message, how it
has been blocked. Why, why, why are not we paying attention to
this Fatima message that Mary gave in 1917? It is the devil that
has blocked this message. This is a major part of the completion
of the Fatima message so we will be met with such resistance.
Jesus, Jesus wants us to bring Him souls. So many souls would
be saved through the First Saturday devotion. Why, why do we not
talk about the Fatima message like we should, about praying the
rosary and consecrating our hearts, and the First Saturday devotion,
and making reparation to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary? It is so
simple but the devil has blocked this. If we want peace we should
do what Mary has told us for she is the Queen of Peace and the
peace of the world has been entrusted to her. We are the apostles.
We are being sent into the world to carry this message.
- Hail Mary...
- Hail Mary...
- Hail Mary...
The Assumption of Our Lady Into Heaven
- We see Mary taken body and soul into heaven. We live here,
we struggle everyday with so many struggles. We are so focused
on the daily events. We do not realize that soon we too will go
to heaven, if we love and serve the Lord, if we love and serve
God. The world has turned Godless to a large degree. Mary appeared
to me every day, except for a few days, for fourteen months and
begged and pleaded that we spread the love of her Son to this
world, that we spread these rosaries to the world, that we go
to the children with the rosaries and the consecrations. It is
so hard to see our heavenly Mother and to know what she is saying
and to not do more. Jesus and Mary have called you here this day.
You have been chosen by them. This is the message that they wish
to deliver to you, that many souls are suffering and going to
hell. Over and over again I heard Our Lady call out, "Please,
please the souls are dropping into hell like rain. You must go
out to the world and spread the love of my Son."
- On October 13th, Mary said, "I am the Lady of the Rosary.
I have come to warn the faithful to amend their lives and to ask
pardon for their sins. They must not offend Our Lord anymore for
He is already too grievously offended by the sins of men. People
must say the rosary. Let them continue saying it every day."3
This is a great gift that God has given to us, rosaries from the
Hearts of Jesus and Mary. For in the rosary this week Jesus said
that the times ahead will be very dark and unless we discipline
our minds by praying the rosary all through the day, it will be
very hard for us when these dark days come. Mary is our heavenly
Mother. She was taken into heaven but she is very much with us.
She has told us what we must do. We must pray the rosary. She
is our heavenly Mother. As a mother that tells a child what to
eat and how to dress, Mary is telling us this: that we must try
to pray l5 decades of the rosary every day for the times ahead
will be dark and we need to have disciplined thoughts. In praying
the rosary, our thoughts become disciplined. We are meditating
on the lives of Jesus and Mary.
- Hail Mary....
- I saw a documentary on Fatima and in this documentary, Mary
appeared to the three children and then they showed the events
of World War II. The bodies were being thrown on a heap. And it
just about tore my insides apart because I identified so much
with watching Mary appear and then nobody listened or not a lot
of people listened and World War II happened and so many people
were killed. John brought a statue and asked me to read this,
"One day during World War II, a group of soldiers wondered
into a small French village which had been badly bombed. They
stood in the village square and looked at the desolation around
them. Nearly everything seemed battered and broken. Suddenly,
one of the soldiers noticed something interesting close by on
the ground. It looked like a statue. There were cracks and chips
in it and several pieces were missing. It was badly damaged. A
few of the soldiers stood it up right. Immediately they knew that
it was a statue of Jesus. The men began to look for the missing
parts. They put them together as best as they could and then they
set the statue on a pedestal that was still standing, but the
hands were missing. The men looked very carefully for the hands,
but they were no where to be found. When the men were about to
give up, one of them said he knew exactly what to do. He made
a rough sign and hung it over the arms of the statue. The sign
read, 'I have no hands but yours.'"
- Jesus gave me a message that we are His hands and we are His
Heart beating in this world. We must truly be real lovers, lovers
living in this world loving one another, one with each other.
It is in going to the pure heart of Mary, that we will unite in
this deep love affair with Jesus.
- Jesus speaks: You are My hands. You are My Heart beating
in this world. My beloved apostles, will you say "yes"?
Will you go into the world? Will you carry my light in the darkness?
Will you tell the children who are suffering how I love them?
Will you go to the nursing homes and tell the elderly how I am
longing to be with them, to talk to them, to hear the words from
their lips that they love Me? You are My apostles of love. Response:
This is the anniversary of the sixth apparition at Fatima. Mary
appeared every day for fourteen months to me and delivered these
rosaries. That is all she kept saying: that we must lead others
to the love of her Son, Jesus. The message is so simple. It is
love God and love one another. All the fanciness and the frills!
Why can we not live this message which is the message of love
God and love each other.
- We are so focused on the things of this earth and our heavenly
Mother has appeared so many times and told us what we must do-
she made it so clear at Fatima. Do we think our blessed Mother
will change, that she will change her peace plan? We must, we
must carry this message into the world. We must do what Jesus
and Mary are asking us to do.
- Hail Mary....
- Hail Mary....
- Hail Mary....
The Coronation of Our Lady
- Mary speaks: I am Our Lady of the Holy Rosary. I am
asking you this day to carry these rosaries into this world. It
is through the rosary that you will have peace in your hearts.
My little children, you must learn to discipline your thoughts.
You must come to Our Hearts and meditate on Our lives. Our lives
will live in your life as you meditate on the mysteries of the
- Mary speaks: There is a time, a time of struggle. There
is a time of joy. There is a time when the Sacred Heart of Jesus
will reign. The time for these things is near at hand. My little
children, I have called you on this October 13th, 1996. I have
called you to go into this world and to carry the rosary as your
weapon against Satan. It is through the rosary and the scapular
that I will save this world. I am Mary, your Mother. I am Our
Lady of the Holy Rosary.
- We see the angel appear to Mary and ask her to be the Mother
of God. This is the Father's plan- that Mary would be the Mother
of God, and we see Mary as crowned Queen of Heaven and Earth.
Do we see the plan of the Father unfold in our lives? That our
lives are so important to help in the salvation of many? That
He is truly calling us to be apostles to carry His love, His light,
into the dark world?
- Jesus speaks: I am with you in a special way, My beloved
apostles. I am calling you this day. This is an urgent call. You
must go into the world and carry My messages of love to the souls
that are hungry and suffering and in pain.
- Think vividly of the moment of death. There is a soul at this
moment on the edge of death. How did they live their life? Think
of the world today. Is the world living according to the way that
God has told us that we must live? He told us that we must love
God and love one another. There is a soul at this moment on the
edge of death. Where will this soul go? Did the soul love God?
Did it matter about his clothes and his house and all his riches?
I heard Mary, Our Mother, call out time and time and time again
about the souls that were going into hell. It is like the Fatima
documentary- she called and people did not heed what she said
and there was World War II. Mary does not appear as she once appeared
and she has ceased giving messages as she once did. She still
gives messages but they are not as many. She says that we are
not listening to the messages that she has given and that she
cannot hold back the hand of her Son any longer.
- This is the good news: if we do what Mary tells us at Fatima,
we will have peace. There will be the reign of the Sacred Heart
and the triumph of her Immaculate Heart in which souls will fervently
love Jesus with the greatest love. Her plan is so simple but Satan
has blocked this plan. Satan has blocked these rosary messages
and meditations. We must pray that we can circulate the messages
of Jesus and Mary to the world that is hungry and in need of help.
- One day soon we will be with God in heaven, forever and ever.
- Wrapped in the embrace of the Almighty God for all eternity.
Heaven is a place of love for the Almighty God is love. We will
be satisfied. We will know love. We will be at peace. But, hell
is a place where there is no love, there is no community, there
is isolation, there is longing for God for all eternity. He is
alive, He is alive and He is with us this day. You must spread
this message to the ends of the earth.
- Mary speaks: My little children, I call you children
because you are My children, willful in your ways. I have called
to you to pray My rosary and to spread the rosary to the hurting
children in this world. I am asking you on this special day that
you carry the rosary to as many souls as possible. I will aid
you in all efforts to spread the rosaries to the world. Read these
meditations to the elderly in the Nursing Homes, teach them about
the power of the rosary, bring the rosary to the children, tell
them about our lives, about our love for them. I am Mary, your
Mother, I am Our Lady of the Holy Rosary.
- Song: The Rosary Ending Message: Jesus speaks:
How tenderly I love you, My beloved ones. I am Jesus. I have called
you this day for this special meeting. I have called you, My apostles.
Will you go into the darkness? Will you spread the message of
My love? Will you carry the rosary into the world? Will you touch
the hearts of those that are hurting and in pain? Will you be
My apostles of love? I am calling you to love God and to love
one another, to be one in your hearts, to put aside all hatred
and bitterness within your heart, to not give into the tauntings
of Satan to divide you, to always operate in love, to focus on
God. Let your hearts be filled with love. Glory be....
"My dear friends, let us love each other, since love is from
God and everyone who loves is a child of God and knows God. Whoever
fails to love does not know God, because God is love." (1
John 4: 7-8) 4
