Messenger:       Dear Jesus,

                             I love you. You are my valentine-

Jesus speaks:    You are My Valentine
                                     and I love you -


Excerpt from September 22, 1994 - Thursday

Message from God the Father   

God the Father speaks:    Your interior union will grow
                                        with Me as the mighty oak that is rooted
                                        so strongly in the ground. Your life in Me
                                        is alive and vibrant, but it will be
                                        enhanced by the fire of the love of
                                        God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Mary
                                        forever with you and leading you into
                                        such loving union with all Three
                                        Persons, (God the Father, God the Son, and
                                        God the Holy Spirit).

                                            Oh child such joy I have to share with
                                        you. I give you so freely My life and My gifts.
                                        I long to be forever united in such
                                        union with you. Let go of the world and
                                        your fears and focus only on Me.

                                             I am the Way, the Truth and the Life.
                                        I never leave you My beloved child. Place
                                        all your love in My Heart. I will never
                                        abandon you. You must trust
                                        totally in Me.

                                             I am Jesus, Savior of this world and
                                        life to your soul. Feast on My Body
                                        and Blood for I come to you.

                                             Do not look only My children, for gifts in
                                        this world, come to Me and let Me pour out
                                        the gifts only God can give you. I give
                                        you a sharing in My life. This life
                                        is a vibrant force within your soul,
                                        it is not dry and inactive, it is alive and
                                        well formed in Me. Oh sweet one, do
                                        not ever lose heart, I move not an
                                        inch from you. I watch you daily,
                                        minute by minute. Live in Me
                                        that your life will be made whole.
                                        I am your God. I love you with
                                        the most enduring love. Come and
                                        let Me give you My life.

            Messenger:              And He gave them new life inside their
                                        souls. Their hearts were quieted, their
                                        bodies surrendered and they lived
                                        in the love of God. Alleluia.

Messenger:        Jesus I pray for all the urgent needs -

                                I hope we can sell the trailer in Florida
                                    to buy Blue Books and
                                buy the trailer in China so we
                                    can stay there when we have
                                    a retreat.

                           We have an outhouse in China and have
                                since 1997. Pray that we can
                                have toilets put in there where
                                the Church is. We have water across
                                the street at the priest house and in
                                the servants and handmaid houses.

                            Madison is not a little town - you
                                should watch the movie Madison,
                                it is a few miles from China, up
                                the hill -

                            It has the star of the Passion movie
                                in it, Jim Caviezel.


This is the town of Madison and
China is only a few minutes away.

Messenger:        We have been praying in our Church
                                in China since 1997, we 
                                received it for a little price -
                                given to Fr. Carter to do this
                                ministry by the dioceses
                                of Indianapolis.

                             When I first went in I saw the
                                Sacred Heart and Immaculate Heart
                                on the windows in the front and

                                I had a vision of a whole Church
                                praying before the Blessed

Messenger:         And this was soon a reality

Messenger:        Here is a video of Fr. Carter saying Mass in China.

Mass with Father Edward J. Carter, S.J. - May 13, 1998

February 15, 2006 message continues

Messenger:        We now have 24 hour adoration
                                and have for some time.

                        China is beautiful -

                            Father Carter received a message
                                to go to Indiana to look
                                for a Center - we got lost
                                and turned around in China's
                                parking lot - St. Anthony's.

                                We found out about a week
                                    later that the Church was

                            At first, Fr. Carter said Mass
                                5 times a week here - He said
                                China was so important -

                            Jesus gave me the message and
                                it said China was the
                                Eucharistic Center of the world.

                            Besides the prayer and Masses here,
                                we sent so many mailings
                                for the Priestly Newsletter
                                out of here.

                            The foreign mailing always went
                                out of China to 189 countries.

                            The retreat this month was such
                                a joy and we had an extra day
                                because of Valentine Day.

                            We prayed over 5 days before the 
                                Exposed Eucharist and many
                                priests came to celebrate
                                Mass from the diocese
                                here and surrounding ones
                                Covington and Cincinnati.

                            We consider ourselves so blessed
                                to have people before the tabernacle
                                24 hours a day.

                            We will be broadcasting the prayers
                                daily from different centers -
                                LIVE - and reading the daily
                                message -

                            This is a gift for all the centers and sub-
                                centers to pray together if
                                they can daily at 6:20p.m.

                            When Mary appeared daily July 5, 1994
                                to September 5, 1995 -
                                she wouldn't appear if I 
                                got there one minute after
                                6:30 p.m.
                                Jesus appeared too many times.

                            When we were in Florida at the
                               Virgin Mary building we were
                                told to do the prayers at
                                6:20p.m. with the Holy Spirit

                            You can always tune in and see
                                somebody praying in China
                                before the Blessed Sacrament -
                                We pray on the hour too - but
                                in China we do 24 hour
                                adoration before the tabernacle.

                            Problems can arise, but God wants
                                us loving Him always and praying

                            Here are some pictures on the way to China.

Messenger:        We are to have two grottos, small ones
                                one to Our Lady and one to the
                                Sacred Heart at the back of the
                                property by the creek.

                            China is surrounded by water.

                            When Fr. Carter would say Mass I would
                                hear water flowing and I thought
                                it sounded like streaming
                                water. We didn't have air
                                conditioning then.

                            We have a big store in China and you
                                can get your picture taken
                                before a live full size screen
                                of Mary.

                            During retreats - 4 days - we always
                                have great food, Mass daily
                                except Sunday and we meditate on
                                St. Ignatius Spiritual Exercises -
                                singing and meditating each day
                                on a Mystery of the rosary.

                            Day 1    Joyful Mysteries
                            Day 2    Light Mysteries
                            Day 3    Sorrow Mysteries
                            Day 4    Glorious Mysteries

                            It is a great time to pray and grow
                                closer to Jesus - the March
                                retreat will be a special
                                time for lent and moving into
                                Holy Week and Easter -

                            We really sing to God and tell the Father,
                                Son and Holy Spirit how much we love
                                Him -

                                It is a great retreat -

                                The night before day 1 we read the
                                discernment of Spirits of
                                St. Ignatius, purpose and 1st

                            God works in a special way during
                                these retreats -

                            Today is Jerry's birthday -

                                the feast of St. Claude de Columbiere -

4 days before Fr. Carter's death




February 14, 1995
Feast of St. Cyril and Methodius


Jesus and Mary appeared during the rosary during the Shepherds of Christ meeting.

Transcribe from a tape of a live rosary.


St. Valentine's Day

Joyful Mysteries



The Annunciation

1.  Messenger:  See the young Mary and see the angel as the angel appears to Mary and asks Mary to be the Mother of Jesus!

2.  Messenger:  Mary was the most kind and gentle virgin!

3.  Mary had such faith and trust and love of God! 

Mary said, ‘You see before you the Lord’s servant, let it happen to me as you have said.’ And the angel left her.  Luke 1: 38

4.  My soul proclaims
    the greatness of the Lord
and my spirit rejoices
    in God my Saviour;  Luke 1: 46-47

5.  Messenger:  Mary is our model to follow. Mary always followed the will of the Father!

6.  Messenger:  Jesus was conceived in Mary's womb, Jesus is God! Jesus is a Divine Person with two natures: a human nature and a Divine nature.


For this is how God loved the world:
he gave his only Son,
so that everyone who believes in him
    may not perish
but may have eternal life.    John 3: 16

8.  Messenger:  Who are we that God loved us so much that He became man out of greatest love for us?

9.  Messenger:  God is so good to us! Jesus is the mediator between the Father and us.

10.  In Christ, God tells us about himself, about his inner life, about his plan of creation and redemption.

Song between decades:  Ave, Ave, Ave Maria



The Visitation

1.  Messenger:  The angel had told Mary that her cousin Elizabeth was with child in her old age. So Mary made haste to the hill country to visit her cousin Elizabeth. Her heart was bursting over with the good news that Jesus was in her womb!

2.  Now it happened that as soon as Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the child leapt in her womb and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. She gave a loud cry and said, ‘Of all women you are the most blessed, and blessed is the fruit of your womb. Why should I be honoured with a visit from the mother of my Lord?   Luke 1: 41-43

3.  Messenger:  The child in Elizabeth's womb leapt for joy at the sight of Mary and Jesus in Mary's womb!


He went through the whole Jordan area proclaiming a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins, as it is written in the book of the sayings of Isaiah the prophet:

 A voice of one that cries in the desert:
 Prepare a way for the Lord,
 make his paths straight!
 Let every valley be filled in,
 every mountain and hill be levelled,
 winding ways be straightened
 and rough roads made smooth,
 and all humanity
    will see the salvation of God.  
Luke 3: 3-6

5.  Messenger:  The Lady is calling us this day. She's calling us to spread the news of the love of her Son throughout this world. Do not take this call so lightly for she truly comes to you this night to tell you that she is calling to you individually, each and every one of you present. This is her call, her personal call to you to take this plea with seriousness, for souls will be lost. How can we stand with our arms closed in front of us when we know His immense love, when we know that there are so many souls in this world that are hurting that need His immense love!

6.  Song:  Our Lady of Medjugorje

7.  Messenger:  Mary told me this morning that she wanted all at the Shepherds of Christ meeting to sing the above song. She is truly calling us to take her cry so seriously. She is asking us to open up our hearts as Jesus stands at the door of our heart this day, knocking and knocking, and we must let Him in. Then we will spread the love of Jesus throughout this world when we open up our heart to Him.

8.  Messenger:  For His love is a light that shines in the darkness. His love is vibrancy that radiates from our eyes and our being. Mary calls out to us, if we have ears to hear. She has called us here to spread the love of her Son throughout this world!

9.  Messenger:  Mary carried the child Jesus within her womb, Jesus in all His Majesty and Might! Truly God within the womb of Mary! He remains with us this day in the Tabernacle, no less present than the day that she carried Him in her womb. Jesus is waiting for us to outpour to us His abundant grace, to fill us with His love! Come to the Tabernacle! Be ever so close to Jesus' burning Heart!

10.  Messenger:  The time is now! The place is set! We are the apostles of the Sacred Heart of Jesus! Mary is calling to us to come to the two Hearts, to know the immense love that Mary and Jesus have for us and to go into this world to the people that are next to us at your work, to the people that are next to us where we eat lunch! Wherever we are, these are the souls that Jesus came to save! These are the souls that Jesus gave His flesh and His blood for and He asks us to spread His love to each and every soul. Open our arms wide as Jesus opened His arms when He died on the cross! Do not hold our arms crossed in front of our body. Talk about Jesus' love in this world! Pray for the fearlessness that the Spirit can give to us. Take this call so seriously for souls will be lost and condemned to eternal damnation despite Jesus' death and resurrection.

Song:  My Soul Rejoices

Song between decades:  Ave, Ave, Ave Maria



The Birth of Jesus

1.  Messenger:  The Father so loved us that He sent His only begotten Son into the world born of the Virgin Mary. Look at a little baby! God loved us so much that He came into this world a little baby! All His Might and Majesty! God came a little baby in the womb of Mary.

2.  Messenger:  Jesus, in His Divinity and His humanity, remains with us this day in the Eucharist, the same as the day He was born in the manger in Bethlehem! Jesus is present in the Tabernacle here, the same Jesus Christ that hung on the cross! The same Jesus that walked and talked! Jesus is with us this day and He calls out to us to come to Him and realize His presence!

3.  Messenger:  Every time we receive Jesus in the Eucharist within our bodies, we are receiving the same Jesus that died on the cross, the same Jesus that rose from the dead!

4.  Messenger:  Jesus came in such quietness in the town of Bethlehem. The angels sang! There was not a roll of drums or a blare of trumpets! We walk the aisle to receive Him in communion and the only roll of drums and blare of trumpets are those in our hearts! Are we aware of the fact that this is truly God that we receive! That this is the same Jesus that walked the earth with a cross on His back? He wants us to know that it is truly Jesus! Jesus said to tell you: I am the same Jesus that carried the cross on My back and they run from the church!

5.  Messenger:  Jesus came in such poverty and He died hanging on a cross! He came to show us the way! He took the nature of a man because He loves us so much! Who are we that God comes to us? It is only in His great love that He comes to us!

6.  Song:  What Child is This

7.  Song:  A Voice Cries out in the Wilderness

8.  Song:  A Song from Jesus

9.  Song:  I Love You Jesus

10.  Sing:  Silent Night

Song between decades:  Ave, Ave, Ave Maria


The Presentation of Jesus in the Temple

1.  Messenger:  Jesus was taken up to the Temple and the old man, Simeon, was there. He had been told by the Holy Spirit that he would not die until he had seen the Messiah. He saw Joseph and Mary and Jesus enter the Temple. Simeon went over and held Jesus and he said: Now I am ready to die.

2.  Messenger:  But he told Mary and Joseph of the immense sufferings that Jesus and Mary would go through. And he said to Mary that a sword, too, shall pierce your heart!

3.  Messenger:  From that point on when Mary looked at the infant child, when she looked at Jesus all through His life, she knew of the sufferings that He would suffer.

4.  Messenger:  It is through Baptism that we are made children of God and heirs of Heaven, that we share in a special way in His Divine Life. Baptism is a great gift!!

5.  Messenger:  It is through Baptism that our human nature is elevated to such heights!

6.  Messenger:  If we are baptized and remain in the state of grace, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit dwell within us in such a special way. Who are we that the Father, Son and Holy Spirit dwell within us?

7.  Messenger:  Who are we that God loves us so much and that He is so good to us?

8.  Messenger:  God is with us. He loves us so much.

The Finding of Jesus in the Temple

1.  Messenger:  When Jesus was twelve years old, Mary and Joseph took Him up to the Temple for the feast of the Passover!

2.  Messenger:  When Joseph and Mary had left the child Jesus remained behind!

3.  Messenger:  Their hearts in such sorrowing, they returned to the Temple in search of the child Jesus!

4.  Messenger:  Mary is so beautiful and she wants you to know that she is here with us in such a special way -- all white - so beautiful!

5.  Messenger:  When they found Jesus, He was teaching the doctors in the Temple!

6.  Messenger:  Jesus wants to teach us! He wants us to realize how much He loves us! He wants us to come to the Tabernacle and to sit in front of Him. He teaches us in our hearts His Divine Truths when we come and sit with Him. Sit in silence and let Him instruct you as He instructed the doctors in the Temple!

7.  Messenger:  Read His Word in the Holy Scripture! Jesus feeds us with the Eucharist and His Word.

8.  Messenger:  Jesus feeds us with the Eucharist. Jesus gives to us His Body and His Blood to feed us!

9.  Messenger:  Jesus gives to us one another.

10.  The Mystery of Christ and Christian Existence  

...In reference to Christianity, God himself is the ultimate mystery. Radically, God is completely other and transcendent, hidden from man in his inner life, unless he chooses to reveal himself. Let us briefly look at this inner life of God.

    The Father, in a perfect act of self-expression, in a perfect act of knowing, generates his son. The Son, the Word, is, then, the immanent expression of God's fullness, the reflection of the Father. Likewise, from all eternity, the Father and the Son bring forth the Holy Spirit in a perfect act of loving.

    At the destined moment in human history, God's self-expression, the Word, immersed himself into man's world. God's inner self-expression now had also become God's outer self-expression. Consequently, the mystery of God becomes the mystery of Christ. In Christ, God tells us about himself, about his inner life, about his plan of creation and redemption. He tells us how Father, Son, and Holy Spirit desire to dwell within us in the most intimate fashion, how they wish to share with us their own life through grace. All this he has accomplished and does accomplish through Christ. St. Paul tells us: "I became a minister of this Church through the commission God gave me to preach among you his word in its fullness, that mystery hidden from ages and generations past but now revealed to his holy ones. God has willed to make known to them the glory beyond price which this mystery brings to the Gentiles—the mystery of Christ in you, your hope of glory. This is the Christ we proclaim while we admonish all men and teach them in the full measure of wisdom, hoping to make every man complete in Christ" (Col 1:25-28).

Excerpt from Response to God's Love, by Father Edward Carter, S.J.


Song between decades:  Ave, Ave, Ave Maria



The Seven Sorrows of the Blessed Virgin Mary



1.  The Prophecy of Simeon.   Simeon told Mary and Joseph of the sufferings that Jesus and she would undergo. And a sword, too, shall pierce your Heart, O Mary!


2.  The Flight into Egypt.   Joseph was told in a dream to take the child Jesus and Mary to Egypt. And a sword, too, shall pierce your Heart, O Mary!



3.  The Child Jesus was Lost in the Temple.   Joseph and Mary's hearts in such sorrowing, they searched for the child Jesus. And a sword, too, shall pierce your Heart, O Mary!


4.  Jesus and Mary's Eyes Peered into one another's on Calvary.   The union of the two Hearts. Jesus' Heart was pierced with a lance! Mary's heart was pierced invisibly with a sword! The immense love that these two Hearts have for us! The intimacy between these two Hearts! The more that we unite with Mary, the closer we become to the Heart of Jesus. Dear Holy Spirit, please transform us within the heart of Mary to be more and more like Jesus! And a sword, too, shall pierce your Heart, O Mary!


5.  Jesus Died on the Cross and Mary stood beneath the Cross.   We are brought to new life through Jesus' death. And a sword, too, shall pierce your Heart, O Mary!


6.  Mary under the Cross Received the lifeless body of her Son.   Mary held the child Jesus so tenderly in her arms as a baby, Mary now received Jesus' battered, bloody body totally lifeless to hold in her arms! And a sword, too, shall pierce your Heart, O Mary!


7.  They locked Jesus in the Tomb.   His enemies were so happy that they had won! And Mary wept outside the tomb. But death has no power over Jesus for on the third day, through the power of the Holy Spirit, He rose triumphant from the tomb! Jesus gave us a sharing in His life through baptism -- His Divine Life! His Divine Love! Jesus Christ, the Son of God, came to this earth, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered and died and rose on the third day that we might share in this Divine Life! And a sword, too, shall pierce your Heart, O Mary!

And the heart of the Virgin Mary, whose heart was pierced so many times for love of her Beloved Son, calls out to us from this heart to take this as an urgent call from her. Be about your relationship with her Son, Jesus. For if you are united to Jesus, you are more likely to live in the Father's will for us. Mary told me today to bring the song, The Lady of Medjugorje, because she had a special plea for you. This is her plea! Come to the Eucharistic Heart of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. It is a burning furnace of endless love on fire for us. The more we unite with Jesus, the more we become one in God. The more God will operate from us to touch the hearts of so many souls - souls that may be lost if we do not spread His love. Mary calls out to us, our Spiritual Mother. It is in Baptism that we were born to new life. Mary wants us to grow deeper and deeper in our life in Him. For it is in union with her Son, Jesus, that we will achieve everlasting life. We want to be forever united in the courts of Heaven with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit in deepest union. Your union in Heaven depends upon your union here on earth. The deeper our union here, the deeper our union in Heaven. Heaven is a place that we cannot imagine.

Song:  Eye has not Seen


This rosary was prayed before the statue of Our Lady of Sorrows at the Shepherds of Christ meeting. Mary appeared through out the entire rosary. Mary was brilliant and was illuminated during the entire rosary. Rita saw her as white! Jesus also appeared.
