Message from Jesus given to Fr. Carter in his handwriting




                Dear People of My Movement,

                    I have called you to pray deeply
                during this retreat in Florida —
                Tonight it will begin
                with constant prayers through
                the 6th, the Epiphany.

                    I am asking all in China to be
                faithful to 24 hour adoration to
                boost the very needed prayer
                in Florida.

                    Both centers are to be united
                in prayer to strengthen the movement
                for needed grace —

                    You have answered My call —
                You are full of the fruits of the
                Spirit — joy and peace — if you are
                living your vocation —

                    A person envious, jealous,
                dark, unhappy, provoking others —
                not being settled in joy is not
                cooperating with the grace to be
                and not
                to pray for the priests, the Church
                and the world.

                    My Movement is pure.
                    My writings are pure.

                    Satan works through people
                who need cleaning inside —
                selfishness —

                    My Movement exists for
                prayer and love —

                    Seeing the 1,800,000
                Priestly Newsletters out there and
                praying for this.

                    Pray for Fr. John.

                    My Newsletter is important to
                Me — the message I delivered

                    If a person does not pray and
                they are selfish, they
                tear down everyone trying —

                    Be a generous giver and I
                will bless you abundantly —

                    Love is not hate and
                anger, pride, selfishness

                    My mission is this
                    Love of the 2 Hearts

                    praying for the 1,800,000 Newsletters
                    recently sent, those receiving
                    them —
                    Love in your hearts

                    Praying for all the Blue Books
                        and 100,000 Books I sent

                My mission is to give
                My mission is to spread love to
                    the hungry souls

                Satan presses down
                    seeking dominance

                The tabernacle is the answer

                Study My messages for My
                    message —
                    for the content —

                Don't let satan get you
                    off what I am trying
                    so hard to tell you

                Pray for grace
                Use the Blue Books
                Be obedient
                Recognize My direction in My superior
                    and obey Me

                I am Jesus

                You have been called by
                    To this retreat
                    Pray and be holy



                My Movement exists

                    1) to study My directions
                    2) to spread love and joy
                    3) answering your vocation
                        is in service
                    4) I ask you to pray as you have
                        never prayed before for the
                        priests, the Church and the world
                    5) pray for love and gratitude in
                        your hearts
                    6) pray to be holy
                    7) pray to be like Mary
                    8) don't give into impure behavior
                        lust, greed, jealousy, anger, envy,
                        selfishness, bad moods when
                        you are so richly blessed.
                    9) Say thanks, I love you,
                        your welcome and mean what you say.

                Pray the Prayer for Union with Jesus

                When Fr. Carter was alive - he told Rita
                    under obedience to go to bed early or
                    the Blue Book writings would not be

                What a treasure the Blue Books are
                The devil tempts you to eat "junk"
                                eat too much
                                stay up late - and in
                                the darkness - you can become
                                tired and rebellious if you are
                                not to stay up

                Be can do people—

                You can do this Movement —
                        My Way —
                        For Me —

                Giving into the devil for seeking dominance
                    for dominance sake - hurts you and
                    you suffer

                Bad habits can be changed - many are
                    very rebellious



From December 26, 2007




                A baby comes into the world and they are
                    helpless —

                Jesus came a baby

                The Son of God came — not high and mighty, but
                    a little helpless baby —

                I love the Finding in the Temple because it
                    shows the wisdom of God —
                    Jesus is teaching the doctors in the temple
                    I would have liked to been there to see
                    this 12 year old boy and take notes, but He has
                    given us the Blue Books

                He has given us these writings
                Did you think Jesus lived a quiet life so
                    He would be protected until His
                    time —

                It is the tendency of man to seek dominance
                    for dominance sake, man is prideful
                    and jealous, envious because of his
                    wounded human nature

                Mary is our pure spiritual Mother —
                    she is the New Eve —

                Spreading the consecration of the Two Hearts for families
                Spreading the consecration of the Two Hearts for schools
                Spreading the consecration of the Two Hearts for Churches
                    IS so important

                Jesus was born God-made-Man
                    Jesus the perfect baby
                    So beautiful
                    Born in a stable
                    No where to put His head

                 Does Jesus have a space to be in our heart —

                Or do we really make Jesus into what
                    we want
                    have an agenda this Christmas
                    Jesus came to save souls
                    Jesus is the Savior
                    Jesus is crying over the world —
                    the world has focused little on purity
                    there is much evil in the world
                    Jesus is with us



                    Jesus wants people before the Blessed Sacrament
                    Jesus is truly present in the Blessed Sacrament
                    Jesus wants intimacy with His priests
                    Jesus wants them to lead them to the Eucharist
                        and consecration

                    The Power is in the Eucharist

                    Jesus came a baby and He grew at the knee of
                        Mary —
                        He learned to walk and to talk
                        Jesus grew by Mary's side
                        Mary's pure love — her motherly touch was
                            with Jesus
                        Joseph taught Jesus about wood
                        Jesus came — God-made-man
                            and He lived amongst His creatures

                        Jesus grew from a baby body to the man who
                            taught the world and worked miracles
                            during His public life
                            to the man who mounted it and died for
                                our sins.

                    Jesus didn't have to do any of this
                    Jesus did it for love of us
                    When someone - gives and gives like Jesus and
                        lives for Jesus
                    because of jealousy and pride, envy, slothfulness
                        someone may say
                        "Why isn't God talking to me"

                    This is how it was at the Holy Spirit Center and
                        Mary appeared every day
                        instead of helping me with what
                        Mary wanted

                    I was persecuted —

                    Nothing is worse than being persecuted by those
                        you love and have given yourself for

                    Jesus hung on the cross and died for our sins
                        He didn't have to do that
                        He did it out of love
                        Jesus was called crazy

                    Did Jesus like the way the men whipped
                        Him —
                        crowned Him with thorns —
                        How they made Him carry the cross
                            laden with the sins of the world —
                        He did it out of selfless love for
                            His creatures

                    Jesus' Apostles fought and argued —
                    Think of Mary after Jesus went into heaven
                        after the Ascension

                    John was under the cross with Mary —



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.


                    It was there under the cross Jesus gave us Mary as
                        our Mother

                    He hung on the tree
                    Mary stood under the cross
                    The New Adam
                    The New Eve

                    His life poured out from His pierced Heart —
                        Water for baptism
                        Blood for the Eucharist


                    From Tell My People

Age of the Two Hearts

Jesus: "My beloved priest-companion, I have allowed you to experience in extraordinary fashion the riches contained in My Heart and My Mother's Heart. I desire that you tell all My people about these riches. I desire that My people consecrate themselves to My Sacred Heart and to Mary's Immaculate Heart. My people are living in the beginnings of the age of the Two Hearts.

"After the time of the purification is completed, this new era of the Church and the world will become firmly established. This era will be characterized by the triumph of the Immaculate Heart and the reign of My Sacred Heart. All those who consecrate themselves to My Heart and to My Mother's Heart will help to establish this glorious new age. I am Lord and Master. Please listen to My urgent request. Within Our Hearts you will experience the love and security, the peace and the joy, which you all desire. I love My people with a tremendous love, and in My love I give them this message!"

Reflection: This is the Age of the Two Hearts! The surest road to sanctity in these our times is through consecration to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. In making this consecration, and striving with God's grace to live it as best we can each day, we are contributing to the establishment of the triumph of the Immaculate Heart and to the arrival of the reign of the Sacred Heart.

Given December 31, 2007


                Dear Jesus,

                    I give you my heart. It is with
                love for You ever more, the Father and
                the Holy Spirit I live.

                    For what good does it do us to
                try to win the world and lose our

                    God is just and merciful.
                    God is love.


Gospel today

John 1: 1-18

In the beginning was the Word:
the Word was with God
and the Word was God.
He was with God in the beginning.
Through him all things came into being,
not one thing came into being
   except through him.
What has come into being in him was life,
life that was the light of men;
and light shines in darkness,
and darkness could not overpower it.

A man came, sent by God.
His name was John.
He came as a witness,
to bear witness to the light,
so that everyone might believe
   through him.
He was not the light,
he was to bear witness to the light.

The Word was the real light
that gives light to everyone;
he was coming into the world.
He was in the world
that had come into being through him,
and the world did not recognise him.
He came to his own
and his own people did not accept him.

But to those who did accept him
he gave power to become children of God,
to those who believed in his name
who were born not from human stock
or human desire
or human will
but from God himself.
The Word became flesh,
he lived among us,
and we saw his glory,
the glory that he has from the Father
   as only Son of the Father,
full of grace and truth.

John witnesses to him. He proclaims:
‘This is the one of whom I said:
He who comes after me
has passed ahead of me
because he existed before me.’

Indeed, from his fullness
    we have, all of us, received—
one gift replacing another,
for the Law was given through Moses,
grace and truth have come
   through Jesus Christ.
No one has ever seen God;
it is the only Son,
   who is close to the Father’s heart,
who has made him known.


                    The most important lesson we can
                teach is that God is our goal and to seek
                truth in Him.

                    We have only so many years to arrive
                at the truth deeper and deeper in us here on earth.
                God gives us a sharing in His life
                in Baptism and the more we go to the
                Eucharist the more we are saturated
                with His life, His grace. The more we
                live in Him and He lives in us the
                Spirit of truth is in us.

                    Man was created by God and
                God intends man to walk hand-in-hand
                in love — doing all things for His honor
                and glory.

                    A person that has their lives focused
                on the world leaving Jesus out will
                have a life of endless searching —
                thirsting after what he was created for.
                Every day is a treasure to advance more
                in the spiritual life. To those whose
                focus and end is themselves and this
                world — they live a life like a blind-man
                in trial and error looking for truth and

                    The hungry heart inside created for
                God cries out and what they feed it is
                like candy and riches to a starving, malnutrition

                    The more one goes down the streets
                of darkness, the more blind they become
                their heart becomes more worldly
                and hardened without knowing
                God's infinite bountiful love.

                    I love the scriptures — as God uses
                the desert, the desert surrounded where
                he was and yet Jesus came the fountain
                of God's grace to bring us to the great
                gift of the priest, and the Church and
                the world.



Excerpt from Response in Christ by Fr. Edward J. Carter, S.J.

FOUR The Sacraments
and the Mass

       1) Interior Oblation

The first duty of man is to surrender himself to God out of love. This fact flows from the truth that God is the Creator and man is His creature. Man, if he is ideally to fulfill his creaturely role must respond as perfectly as possible to the loving demands of His Creator. God asks that man give himself completely to Himself. This is only proper since everything that man has, whether of the natural or supernatural order, has been given to him by God. Man, in turn, perfects himself by developing these various gifts according to God's will or, in other words, by giving himself completely to God. Man's gift of self to God is centered in loving conformity to the divine will. Consequently, one can understand why the will with its decision-making capacity is the crucial faculty in man, a point emphasized by contemporary thought.

     Man directs himself to God by the virtue of religion. This is not to say that this particular virtue ranks above the theological virtues of faith, hope and charity. These are the most excellent, since they unite man directly to God. We are merely stating that the virtue of religion directs all man's actions to the honor of God.6

     This virtue consists especially in acts of adoration, thanksgiving, petition and reparation. These interior acts can manifest themselves in many ways, but they are especially expressed through sacrifice. Here, then, we have the first constituent element of sacrifice: man's interior offering of himself to God. This giving takes place chiefly in man's will, under the guidance of the virtue of religion. This first element of sacrifice is of prime importance, for it deals with interior dispositions. This importance can be recognized concretely in the history of religion. For example, the Jewish people were convinced that the principal value of sacrifice was centered in the dispositions of the people.7

                    Now see a desert and a man crawling
                from lack of water and then see the
                Vatican as the center of the Catholic
                Church as a fountain — pouring grace
                through the celebration of the Mass and
                the sacraments on the people.

                When I was in the Vatican there was
                a fountain —



                Everything was so majestic


                    We come into this life as little children
                and we begin learning right away, searching
                for the truth. Our days are numbered.

                    I had a friend once and he would
                dawdle — say he would be somewhere
                and hours later show up and we would
                say — we waited and expected you

                He had a free will —
                He did other things knowing we waited,
                    but he was in control —

                When God puts us here and He takes us
                    in death we have so many
                    years to live to prepare us
                    for heaven —

                    He has control of when we come — we don't
                    control our natural death — even
                    though we have a free will —

                We have so many years, days, minutes —
                    I know my joy is in His will —
                    in serving Him —
                    in being fed spiritually on His
                        Body and Blood

                God is the teacher —
                We are the students —
                If we think we can skip class —
                    we are wrong —

                He continues to teach us —
                    bids us to follow His will —
                    Adam and Eve were rebellious
                        they wanted their will
                    Mary followed the will
                        of the Father
                    Jesus is God

                The students that really want to learn
                    sit at the feet of the teacher —
                    They are grateful for the wisdom
                        a teacher gives

                It is truth we seek.

                Mary never was jealous

                Mary lived to serve God.
                Mary lived as if at the feet of God.
                Mary stood beneath the cross.



                God teaches us and the blind is
                    raised as He imparts to us
                    tremendous wisdom and knowledge

                We are blinded from the garden.
