Mary wants us to go to her
From Tell My People
by Fr. Edward J. Carter,
The Holy Spirit
Jesus: "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
Reflection: 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.
Prayer: Come, Holy
Spirit, fill us with your gifts of wisdom, understanding, knowledge,
counsel, fortitude, piety, and fear of the Lord. As we dwell in the Heart of
Mary, Your spouse, fashion us more and more according to the Heart of Jesus.

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

forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting.

The Father's Will for
Us - Our Source of Peace
Pope John Paul II
instructs us: "The Church, as a reconciled and
reconciling community, cannot forget that at the source
of her gift and mission of reconciliation is the
initiative, full of compassionate love and mercy, of
that God who is love (see 1 John 4:8) and who out of
love created human beings (see Wisdom 11:23-26; Genesis
1:27: Psalms 8:4-8)…He created them so that they might
live in friendship with Him and in communion with one
"God is faithful to His
eternal plan even when man, under the impulse of the
evil one (see Wisdom 2:24) and carried away by his own
pride, abuses the freedom given to him in order to love
and generously seek what is good, and (instead) refuses
to obey his Lord and Father. God is faithful even when
man, instead of responding with love to God’s love,
opposes Him and treats Him like a rival, deluding
himself and relying on his own power, with the resulting
break of relationship with the One who created him. In
spite of this transgression on man’s part, God remains
faithful in love.
"It is certainly true
that the story of the Garden of Eden makes us think
about the tragic consequences of rejecting the Father,
which becomes evident in man’s inner disorder and in the
breakdown of harmony between man and woman, brother and
brother (see Genesis 3:12 ff; 4:1-16). Also significant
is the Gospel parable of the two brothers (the parable
of the ‘prodigal son’; see Luke 15:11-32) who, in
different ways, distance themselves from their father
and cause a rift between them. Refusal of God’s fatherly
love and of His loving gifts is always at the root of
"But we know that
God…like the father in the parable (of the prodigal
son), does not close His heart to any of His children.
He waits for them, looks for them, goes to meet them at
the place where the refusal of communion imprisons them
in isolation and division. He calls them to gather about
His table in the joy of the feast of forgiveness and
"This initiative on God’s
part is made concrete and manifest in the redemptive act
of Christ, which radiates through the world by means of
the ministry of the Church."

‘Master, which is the greatest commandment of the Law?’ Jesus said to

neighbour as yourself. On these two commandments hang the whole

It is against the 5th
commandment to cause
chaos and confusion,

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.
Anger in a person projected

God the Father:
My Dear Children,
I am the Father. My plan is
unfolding through you, My beloved priest, Fr. Carter,
and Rita and the core group in the Shepherds of Christ
I tell you all to read the
accounts concerning Noah. Nowhere in history has God
been offended as He is this day by this sinful world.
You will suffer a fate for the offenses against God.
Mary appeared at Fatima to
warn you, the sinful children, how they were offending
God, but you did not listen. The war did not change the
hearts of many evil men.
I warn you through My
beloved daughter, Mary. You did not heed her warnings.
Disobedience against the Mother I gave you displeases Me
greatly. Mary is the Mother of all children. Mary is a
gift from Me, but you are willful and abuse the gift I
You do not make reparation
to her Immaculate Heart; you continue to offend her. I
will not tolerate the deeds of evil men any longer.
My plan will unfold. Any
disobedience to these messages given by Me, My Son, or
your Mother Mary will cause Me great displeasure.
I am the Father, the
Almighty God, the Alpha, the Omega; you are a sinful
people, a chosen race sinning against a loving God.
I am angered at your ways
for they are not My ways, you have run amuck, you have
offended your God, you have disobeyed your Mother and My
beloved Son who died to save you.
I will act on all who
continue in such sin. The sheep will be separated from
the goats; the goats will receive punishment for their
deed. Heaven and earth will kiss, there will be love in
all hearts, justice will prevail and My children will be
children of light, children that obey as I intended from
Oh indeed My sweet
messenger, I look to the earth and see the darkness, I
see the disobedience of men against their Mother. I know
the deeds committed and the evil in the hearts of so
many. Justice will prevail and I will wipe out the
earth. Only the children of light will remain, those who
have given their hearts to their Mother Mary.
Do you think I send your
Mother Mary as a messenger to be disobeyed by willful
children? What do you think about at night, the cat, the
dog, the fish? You don't know love. You don't love God
or one another. This is My command to you, to love. You
are a sinful, willful race, and the devil will vanish
from the hearts of the children of light for they will
be under the protection of her Immaculate Heart, the
other children will be wiped off the face of the earth.
Disobey My messenger,
ignore your Mother, ignore the Son in these messages.
Ignore My Son who died for you.
Oh you sinful people filled
with pride and disobedience, I give you the directions
here to turn your hearts to love.
My Son has revealed Himself
as never before in history into His tremendous love for
men and you treat Our gift with such indifference.
I am angered at the lack of
support to spread the messages of My Son's love for all.
You worry for funds, worry
more, I am God the Father, the Almighty God. You
disobeyed Mary, you disobeyed Jesus, now you will
You must obey My
directions, the directions given through My Son, Jesus
for the unfolding of the Father's plan.
No longer will I wait while
willful men check and deliberate and disobey.
My plan will unfold through
the Shepherds of Christ Movement.
I am talking through these
messages given by My Son and Mary to tell you how to
accomplish this task of carrying out My plan.
You must obey. The
directions are given in these messages to spread the
fire of God's love across this earth, to renew the
Church and the world.
Because of willful men
these messages have been held in check.
I am God, the maker of all
things. You have made money your god. I want obedience,
the funds will come when you obey all of the directions
I have given to you.
Anyone who interferes with
these messages will be removed.
These are the messages I
give to the world. Fr. Carter's newsletter will teach
the priests, all they need to know to be holy, loving
Many priests are not
loving, they are cold in their hearts. I will instruct
the clergy through the newsletter.
My Son is the Chief Priest
and Teacher. He has taught the world the secrets of His
Heart through the writings of Fr. Carter and Rita, to go
to men to check the value of these writings displeases
You must have faith, you
must study the entire revelations given here. You are
not valuing My great gift to you.
I am the power, I am God,
to the ends of the earth, I will be with you. My plan
will unfold. You must think big, not on a human level.
You must come to Me.
Our Father who art in
heaven, hallowed be Thy Name, Thy kingdom come, Thy will
be done on earth as it is in heaven.
I am telling you to
circulate the tape of January 13 (1997) as soon as
possible. This tape must be released to the world. It is
the message to go with the apparition on the building in
You must make every
connection with Mary's message given December 12 (1996)
and the messages given by Mary with the apparition of
her on the building in Florida.
Time is very short and My
patience is very thin. I will strike the earth and the
evil men will scatter and there will be a reign of peace
where men will love God as I intended. The evil men will
be chastised for I sent your Mother to warn you and you
disobeyed. I gave My Son as a sacrifice and you treated
Him with indifference. I am angry at the creatures on
this earth. I will lessen the chastisement if you make
reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
Oh willful children, you
disobey your Mother, you are unloving and willful and
your ways are evil. You are a sinful race.
I am sending water, rain to
quench your thirst, My beloved children of light; I am
sending fire to burn the fields for the sinful children,
they will suffer drought and will fall to the ground
dead, they will know fire, they will know the wrath of
God. For I speak and I am ignored.
I am using the Shepherds of
Christ Movement to majorly carry out the plan begun at
Fatima. Every day lost is a lost day. I give to you
Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary as your
directions to help the plan unfold. Circulate these
rosaries to all chapters and stress their importance.
The tape of January 13
(1997) is important to the world. The tape must be
circulated with the apparition in Florida and the
messages typed and put on the Internet with the rest of
the messages I have given. The connection must be made
between the apparition and the Shepherds of Christ
Satan will attack you
strongly, he will create division and give messages
through other visionaries to get you off coarse. You
must obey My directions given in these messages to help
bring about the completion of the Fatima message.
I will weed out anyone
interfering with My plan.
I will tell you when you
have deviated from My plan, do not taunt My messenger,
this displeases Me. Read the messages for direction and
The directions given are
strong to correct a sick world. You must quit focusing
on the messenger and obey Me.
I am the Father, these are
My messages to bring about the reign of the Sacred Heart
of Jesus and the triumph of Mary's Immaculate Heart.
You think of money and miss
the gift given. You are men bolted to the earth. You
must obey Me. I have all the power.
