  Glorious Mysteries

 

Jesus: It is just a short time, it is just a short time that you are here and your life passes in petty pace, from day to day to day.

Our Father

Jesus: Death - Resurrection — Death - Resurrection — the barren land, the barren trees that in spring turn to trees that are green and filled with fruit. Death - Resurrection. Night - Day. How many days have you seen that were not preceded by night? And what is the lesson for you, but that I have placed you, the wounded children of Adam and Eve on this earth that you would learn the lesson that the Father wishes to teach you.

R. For Faith, Hope and Charity

  

The Resurrection

1. Jesus: For My Might is the Might of God. And you see in such little details and yet you are put here on this earth to grow in greater perfection. Death - Resurrection.

2. R. And we look at Jesus and He hung on the cross to His death. The seed - the New Adam, and Mary stood beneath the cross. But the time was the time that He endured according to the Father's plan, the hours of His agony till He breathed His last breath. He gave the last beat of His Heart and the last drop of His blood. Isn't death like that for all of us? For we are placed here on this earth and we do not know, in dying a natural death, when exactly it will happen — waiting, waiting all through our life. How do we deal with the realization of knowing that some day that death will occur and that we will go to some place?

3. R. Are we not always really aware of the fact that the plant withers and dies, that the trees go into dormancy in the winter and come forth in green foliage in the spring, that after the night follows the day. Is it not for us to realize that this is the plan of the Creator, that we are born into this world, that we have a wounded human nature, that we are taught by imperfect people how to live from generations past and we see at the time of Noah how He flooded the earth because so many had become so contaminated and it was not the loving thing to allow this contamination to continue. Is is not always about this in salvation history that God calls man to obedience and man can choose to obey or to do his own will. Is it not that Adam and Eve wanted to be equal to God. Death - Resurrection.

    Christ came and He took our sins upon His back, all of the dysfunction in which man committed the most evil acts of hurting others and lying about it, the denial of the alcoholic whose whole family suffers day in and day out, while he refuses to recognize because of the Merry-Go-Round of denial, his own problem, blaming others for his own condition, while they all are subject to learned survival tactics in the terrible dysfunctional home and in abuse. In alcoholism where the one controls forcing all to do the dance — force, force, force — that they will rule with dysfunctional ways while others in fear are forced as little children. While Mary Jo and James learned to give and take and to love, learned about the family meal and how they all shared — John and Karen watched a battleground of dominance at every meal for it was a time of vulnerability when one wished to enjoy with others and the food was thrown around. What does God give to us at His Eucharistic table — a meal of His love, giving to us His Body and Blood to nourish us that there will be peace in this world. Even after the Resurrection, He gave to them a meal to enjoy.

4. R. But there is darkness and light, there is tension and accord, there is anger and peace, there is hatred and love, there is selfishness and selflessness. There is focusing on the Father's vision always as God has asked us to do in the Shepherds of Christ to help to bring about the Reign of the Sacred Heart and the triumph of Mary's heart in which there will be this tremendous era of love. And it is that the devil will come to force to try to push, to cause disharmony, hatred, anger, force — force is such a thing that they have all kinds of rules for sexual harassment. Today in offices and for homes that people will be protected against the forces of others, and if violation occurs they deal with the law or someone going to a job wanting to just help with the books may end up being sexually harassed in the process of filing orders.

5. R. And so I speak to you of the family that I see of the mother and the father rooted in love, respect for one another, bringing forth children as olive plants around the table, taking them to church together that they can share in the Eucharist and the First Holy Communion recognizing that God has created them — male and female. And Mary is the highest human creature conceived without sin. St. Catherine of Siena in her vital role in the Church in dealing with the pope, the gifts of the women that God called, as Mary to teach of the love and tenderness of her heart.

    It was Mary that Jesus left with the 12 Apostles and He ascended into heaven. It was Mary that was with the Apostles when the Holy Spirit came upon them and they were transformed from fear to fearlessness. It was Mary that God chose as the means to come into this world. It is Mary that is the Spiritual Mother of all of the children of this entire world. It is Mary that appeared in rainbow color on the building in Clearwater because God the Father allowed her to be there. It is Mary, that is Mother of the Church, so that the Church will bring forth the children. It is because of women that children have come forth from their wombs to propagate the earth. God picked Mary so that the children of this earth would have a sinless Spiritual Mother.

6. R. How tenderly Father Carter saw himself as a man so much like Jesus, held in the arms of Mary that in all of his holy cards, there were numerous holy cards of Mary, holding the Child Jesus, Mary so big, Jesus a baby. That's how Fr. Carter told me he saw himself, a little baby in the arms of Mary. To him that displayed his manlihood the most, his relationship with the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. And at his death in his chair crumbled up in his hand, he held a holy card as he did so often of Mary holding the Child Jesus, for as he left this earth, he saw himself, not as a big macho man, but as a baby in the arms of Mary.

7. R. And He gave to the priests this great gift of being able to celebrate the Mass — Jesus the chief priest and victim and His precious priests. He gave this gift and from the cross He gave to us Mary our Spiritual Mother.

8. R. Jesus, our Savior, our Redeemer — the Holy Spirit, our Friend, our Counselor, our Lover working in that spousal relationship with Mary bringing us forth more and more in the image of Jesus, children of light, the Holy Spirit so united to Mary.

9. R. And the life of Christ as we meditate on the Mysteries of the Rosary and we start with the Annunciation — we start with Mary and the angel and Jesus and we go to the Visitation and we see Mary and Elizabeth and know that John the Baptist comes from this barren woman. Elizabeth carries the baby, John the Baptist, the one called to prepare the way of the Lord. And the Birth of Jesus, Mary brings forth the Christ Child. It is from the womb of Mary that Jesus comes forth. It is from her body that the Sacred Heart of Jesus is formed. It is from the body of Mary that Christ received the blood in His veins. Mary through her body gives the physical life to her Son as He lives within her body. God gives to us the woman Mary.

10. R. It was Mary that was conceived sinless. It was Mary that was full of grace, Mary the woman that God chose.

 

R. Mary Mother, Mary Virgin, Mary conceived without sin, Mary Mother of the Divine God, Mary Singular Vessel of Devotion, Mary Mediatrix of all grace. It is when women lose their respect that we are not recognizing the tremendous role that God has given to Mary as Mother of the Savior. Mary, who within her womb, the body of Jesus was formed.

  

The Ascension

1. R. And I never shriek from seeing how God shows to us His Power and His Might in His transforming gifts as in the Transfiguration. Seeing the gift that God gave in John the Baptist baptizing Jesus and the heavens opened above and said "This is My beloved Son in whom I am well pleased, listen to Him." And those words were so similar at the Transfiguration and yet the Apostles slept in the garden.

   While Jesus was sweating His blood, they were over there sleeping and He said to them, "Can you not watch and stay awake with me?" And they just kept on sleeping and He asked them three times to watch, but they did not listen to Him. Many times they did not listen to Christ and He walked by their side, and He talked in their face and He taught them but they did not listen. Men of their ways when He told Peter to wash His feet, Peter says "Wash me all over." When Peter told Him "You could get killed" He said "Get behind me satan." When Peter was walking on the water, he doubted and he began to fall in, the pride of men.

    The pride of Adam and Eve we see in the garden. The jealousy of Cain we see as he spilled the blood of his brother. Even after he was warned that satan is lurking at your door but you can be his master, he just didn't listen, did he? God speaks and we don't listen. Judas, the betrayer, the one that should have been listening to what Jesus was saying, had his own agenda, so much to the point, where he would betray Him for 30 pieces of silver, and hang himself in the end. But he did not listen when he could have listened, when he could have loved, when he walked right next to Christ. When Jesus called him, satan tempted him like Eve in the garden, "You can do you own plan." Sneaky - sneaky — that sneaky stuff, the devil.

    Jesus is light. Can you image what it would be like, just think of this, to have your head all beat up like Jesus did. The head is so important to a man. And God allowed them to crown Him with thorns, and to beat His head and allow His eyes to bleed and swell shut. Our face is so important to us. But He withstood that for our sins. What do we do to save our face? What negative tape do we listen to in our head that says "And you should do this to save your face because you are what's important."

    And yet, we are all going to stand there and we are going to give an account of all these days - today and yesterday and the day before. We can't go back and take those days and change them. They've already been recorded in our book of life. When God said "Make me a garden and let the fruit flow" — did we go out and bury our minutes and our hours on the thistles and rocks and what came forth was nothing. As for others - some buried their fruit, and others brought forth fruit for the Kingdom. Every minute of every day we will have an accounting for, and although we have been violated by others, how we wound others is our responsibility.

2. Hail Mary

3. R. And they went out near the town of Bethany and they watched their beloved Jesus as He ascended into the sky and a cloud took Him out of sight. Why in our little feeble ways, in which we have really so little power, do we not recognize the glory of these Glorious Mysteries that God in His omnipotence is showing us His Might and His Power, that they locked Him in a tomb and that He was dead in there, for three days, and He came forth with His glorified body. That to me shows the Power of God, Mary appearing in Clearwater shows me the Power of God. When I was doing the dance around the Holy Spirit Center and getting kicked out 3 times in a row and thinking of the survival that was going on there — God was saying to me, "Fear not, I'm near you, keep doing what I am saying."

    And the people of combat wear themselves out, whereas the meek hearts are the hearts of peace that go on and on. They may suffer, they may bob up and down on the wavy ocean or water, but they don't wear themselves out like the one that goes through the constant turmoil of fighting within — fight, fight, fight. It is peace to be doing God's will even in suffering. It is peace to have a meek heart like Christ. And we wear ourselves out with the anger that beats at us, like the angry sea that I saw just tear the coast away — just kept beating at it and beating at it and beating at it until finally there was hardly anything left. But it is the angry sea, the combating person that wears themselves down, whereas the person that is enduring the combat, like Christ, goes on and on and comes forth from the tomb, glorious. Sacred Heart of Jesus meek and tender of Heart, make our hearts likened to Thine.

    What ends up happening is the more that we let that anger grow, which grows because of the time involved and the generations of how fierce it was, it comes in different size cans — the more the anger grows, the more it grows. Because anger like that, that is destroying ourselves and others is working havoc on our heart and our soul. It is a pressure inside on the organs, on the vessels.

    And it is not with a stone heart that the Holy Spirit can move in there, the angry heart, the hateful heart. The Holy Spirit is God, God is love. You cannot hate and love at the same time.

4. Jesus: I am light. I am light. The Holy Spirit is come in the hearts of those that are open to transform them more and more into My instruments of love that the fire of God's love will be seen as a light throughout the whole world. And the devil comes to take the angry ones by deception to lead them more and more into an explosive force, of controlling others, controlling the weak ones, for their own vain glory.

5. R. And He ascended into heaven and a cloud took Him out of sight. And the Apostles were afraid and they hid themselves in the upper room and there they remained praying with the Virgin Mary, praying - for the Holy Spirit would soon come upon them and transform them from fear to fearlessness. God is with us always, the Might of God is always there. Every day we see that light follows the dark night. Every day we see that the green comes out in spring after the barren trees. Many of the birds go somewhere and come back in the spring — flowers come back that you thought were dead. God shows us His Might. Jesus came forth from the tomb - that shows the Might of God, the transforming action, the power of His grace that good will rule over evil.

6. Hail Mary

7. Hail Mary

8. Hail Mary

9. R. Now look at the houses, wherein one house the husband and wife were loving and teaching the children of settling conflict, of sharing, of having confidence of expressing themselves — in the other house it was dominated by anger and control and violence — in another house where the home was that of love and the family was raised in great holiness, another house they was split up, the child lived with the mother. The husband may have left for another woman, but there was agony in the heart to deal with such a loss.

    And then we are all thrown into the same pot, but God knows all of our wounds. It is what we do with our life that we will be held responsible for, not what was done to us but what we are doing today. And whatever was done to you or me or whoever else, we have all had our battles in some way, shape or form. But the free will is there and the evil influence is greater in some than others because of the sin and the generations past and the habits, likewise, the holiness, the practice of going to daily Mass and praying the rosary. We may have been victims long ago but what we do today to make others our victims, in all truth, will be revealed.

10. Hail Mary

  

The Descent of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles and the Virgin Mary

1. R. And I saw in that video on the Feast of the Epiphany what looked almost like a tongue of fire that was there and then it turned into like a red filter over the whole place, which I had never seen before because it was always variegated colors. And to me since Our Lord and Our Lady were appearing and the monstrance turned the next day — I thought Jesus was telling me how powerfully He was working in our work here to help to bring about the reign of His Sacred Heart, that the veil of His burning love as shown as a red light could cover the earth in a moment and set the world on fire with the fire of His love. But as long as we persist in not living in purity and holiness, we cease to do the mission of the Shepherds of Christ which is to call an order of servants and handmaids to help renew the religious orders and to live in great peace in unity and community for the purpose of prayer, love and peace.

2. R. The rule of the order is obedience and chastity.

3. R. And in the beginning God called these rosaries and said whenever the rosaries were done, there would be tremendous healing. And so I received the rosaries in the Red Rosary Book at the same moment that Mary appeared in rainbow color in Clearwater.

4. R. Corruption and healing, truth and lies, obedience and disobedience, holiness and rebelliousness. Eve wanted to be equal to God. The New Eve was the handmaid of the Lord.

5. R. Come Holy Spirit Come, and fill our hearts with the fire of God's love. Dear Holy Spirit as You came upon the Apostles at Pentecost, let us know more and more Your powerful love and Your grace working within us, to be purified to do this mission, to carry the light of God into the darkness. Always the vision of the Father is here, where others wanted it this way or that way or said this is how it should be, and that is how it should be — we would have had 2 people in China for that seemed like their way, or 4 in Florida. But it was not God's way, for the community existed for the community to grow and to prosper, to live in love and peace and joy, to eat, to giggle, to have happiness, to have the joy of this tremendous vocation that God has given to us and the blessings of spreading this renewal to the whole Church and the world and spreading the consecration which is the love of these Two precious Hearts.

    There is no force here, for a vocation is one willingly giving themselves to the service of God to promote peace, love and joy. It is a willingness that a child is not disobedient but obedient to their parents, for they know they should be, that a school child obeys the principal, that a priest obeys his bishop. It is not through force, coercion, anger — it is through the desire of the heart to live one's vocation that they know God wishes for them and has called them to serve Him in love and obedience as a handmaid of the Lord.

6. R. And in seeing our founder Fr. Carter, it was with the utmost seriousness that he obeyed the superiors over him, whether it was his provincial or his rector, and he never, ever, ever in all that he suffered, that may have been different than what he decided, ever said one discouraging word again any of his superiors. Never.

7. Jesus: It is to you I have called for My renewal in the religious orders and it is in your obedience and your willingness to give yourself from your heart, that you will experience the richest blessings of living in peace in your vocation.

8. Hail Mary

9. Hail Mary

10. Hail Mary

  

The Assumption

R. Jesus ascended into heaven. Mary, body and soul was taken into heaven. Mary is a woman, Mother of God, our Spiritual Mother.

1. R. Clouds are puffy, do you see them? Some clouds are dark, really, really, really dark — and some clouds are white, tinged with golden light that reflects on them. Some clouds are dark, dark, dark and some clouds are white tinged with golden light.

2. R. And He made the sun and He made the moon and He put the stars in the sky. And He gave us the rain to water the earth that there would be vegetation. And He gave us the animals and He made those tiny, tiny, tiny little creatures way down in the ocean, that most of us don't even know about, with such symmetry and beauty, that if we saw the tiniest little one under a microscope we would be in awe. And we think we know it all and really know so little in our limited human mind and God gives to us this tremendous sharing in His knowing and loving capacity through Baptism so that we can understand insight into the Divine Mysteries, understanding more and more into the Trinity and yet our eyes are still veiled and as we go to Him we can be as children that are opening up their eyes because we're focusing on the love or we can spend our whole life being in a combat zone, fighting and fighting, and never really resting in Him at all — not really resting in that revelation in love that He wants to outpour.

    That is what satan wants, satan wants us to stay stuck. And we had these people of light, like Abraham, who was so willing that he took his son, Isaac, to the altar because it was God's will. And because he obeyed his descendents were as numerous as the stars in the sky. And Joseph, who was such a light, his brothers who were so jealous just threw him right down into a cistern to die, because they were jealous. Why not? And Aaron was jealous of Moses. And Cain so jealous of Abel that he slew him.

    God has given to us His Holy Word in the Scriptures. And we know that the world was so corrupt at the time of Noah that He allowed the earth to be flooded and spared Noah and his family. Clear Water — she appeared in Clearwater. And the building is set on rock. For there was a sinkhole right under the image, a sinkhole under the rainbow image. Hum?

3. R. Do you really think that anything is an accident in God's plan?

4. R. Wouldn't it be far better to quit the playing the negative — "you can't do it" — angry tapes that satan wants put out on satan's records. Wouldn't it be far better to quit playing those tapes that have been passed on from generations past and put in the good one, the one that says "Mary is appearing to us, Mary has given to us so many gifts over the years. Jesus is with us here." What about this deep knowledge of the Trinity. Can I think more about the embrace of the Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart? Can I think about how I can pray more deeply during these Retreats on the 13ths and the 5ths so that great grace will be released for the souls, for the priests and the Church and the world and all the work that we've been doing for 14 years. Or should I just put in those old satan tapes, satan's LP's.

5. R. Anger is a force and when one is angry they expect results.

6. R. I saw the hurricanes that ravaged Florida after the image head was knocked off. Boy, the signs were just torn apart to shreds and it took forever to put those signs back there - roofs were ripped off, houses destroyed, but very few people were killed. What happens when an angry storm goes raging through a little town?

7. R. Well I know this, they had a lot of repair to do from that. And it took a long time and I still saw blue roofs forever.

8. R. Signs all over were destroyed and for some reason it took them forever to put those signs back. It seems like the buildings could be restored quicker than all those signs, It just looked awful. Signs were destroyed.

9. Hail Mary

10. Hail Mary

    

R. It is not that you were the victim. It is that you have made others your victim and failed to take responsibility, while you were here for such a few years on this earth. It is that you have been called to proceed in light. And the Might of the Almighty God can transform the hardest hearts. For what is it that you were promised in the promises made to Margaret Mary?

  

The Queenship of Mary

1. R. I almost feel like there is nothing to say for this is what we have lived our life for. To help Jesus to be the King and Center of the hearts and Mary the Queen of her children's hearts on heaven and earth.

2. Mary: And I come to you as Mary your Mother, and I appear to you over and over and over again and you do not listen, as you have not listened to my Son Jesus. And your lives have become more and more miserable as you try to force your imperfections and hateful ways. And my Son cries to you, "Oh child how short indeed is your life, the dropping of a pin and it has ended." And the days were all put on record, one after one after one. My Son has called these retreats in this center to pray for the priests and the Church and the world and this is your focus. But satan will come in the weakest link to block the prayer that He has asked for over and over again. But where it was one day, it has turned into four, and a month and the next month. Do you not even see the increase of the anger that works against His plan? Where do you think you will end up in the end? For this mission is for renewal, not for anger.

3. Mary: This mission is for harmony and love. I am the Queen of Peace and I have asked you to spread the love of Our Two Hearts to the entire world — not in jealousy, not in envy, or for self-promotion but for selfless love for the sake of souls.

4. Mary: Death-Resurrection. God is all Powerful. Night follows day and day follows night. Barren trees soon bring forth the buds of spring. God is all powerful. God has given to you a calling to spread the light to the darkened world. Satan does not wish you to do this. Satan does not want the prayer services for prayer for focus of loving God and helping to make reparation to Our Two Hearts. When will you ever learn and where does the journey end?

5. Mary: I am Mary your Mother and I have called you to my Immaculate Heart that the Holy Spirit can help you to heal, but in pride, hatred and anger you will not be able to stay.

6. Mary: Did you ever see a candle, my children, one with a beautiful light? And you were there absorbed in the light, the happiness, the glow of it all. And in walks a man with a snuffer and he snuffs out the light on the candle and there you sit in darkness. How many times when the light has burned within your heart and the Holy Spirit has said to you, "Open up that I can fill you with the fire of God's love" you said, "Oh no, come on in man with the snuffer, put me out."

7. Mary: In control and darkness, manipulation and untruths there is no happiness. In hatred and anger and envy and jealousy there is no happiness. And no matter how you try it will not be turned into a happy day until you let go of the deep-seated psychologically damaging anger from long ago.

8. Mary: And my Son set the Shepherds of Christ out on the seas and the winds came and it rocked and it rocked. And no matter what came against it, it kept rocking, but it stayed right there — strong, supple, loving, a light in the darkness. When you come against this vessel you will know that for 14 years it withstood the rocking but He moved it into Clear Water.

9. Mary: And the devil came and he rocked and he rocked and he rocked and it did him no good, soon he was removed from the bow.

10. Hail Mary

    

Mary: Many are called, but few are chosen and to you this great gift has been given. Many are called and few are chosen and to you this great gift has been given as a gift from God. Not to be abused or used or for your own self-glory but to be an instrument to help bring to completion the mission I began at Fatima. This is serious. It is for this reason that I have appeared and that Jesus has appeared to stand behind the messages given while the devil rocks at the bow.

Hail Holy Queen
