February 27, 2002

Messenger:         The story of my soul.

                                The pain inside of me seems to mount to
                            tremendous proportions that I can not even
                                Upon reading the letter of the sister and 
                            what was happening in Africa and her desire  
                            to supply the people, the children with the
                            Shepherds of Christ prayers and
                            Holy Spirit Novena, I remember 
                            vividly the visions I had of Africa
                            and the lady with the pearls and I hear
                            the tone of the voice of the Almighty God 
                            cry out so deeply with such emotion it was
                            etched deep in my soul "Africa, Africa,

                                I have heard God speak not once but, over and
                            over again, I have seen the transfigured Lord 
                            several times and my soul was in such awe I cannot
                            describe, nor can I describe the joy of that moment
                            of being taken to such heights in Him.
                                I have heard the Father say
                                "This is my Son, the Beloved. Listen to him."
(Mark 9: 7) 
                                        and when I hear this spoken, I am in that place
                                once again and the words are embedded so
                                deeply in my heart and soul, never to be
                                erased or eradicated and every time I hear it,
                                it takes me to such depths, I cry so deeply 
                                inside being wrapped in that reality that God
                                truly is and loves me so deeply. I suffer so
                                for the blindness of those who have no
                                ideas of the things I've seen and experienced.

                            In my dealing with the Lord in these experiences
                                there is a form of selflessness, a place of 
                                losing one's self that I cannot describe.
                                I reach such heights of existing in
                                Him and that place is so real to me.

                            At times I was taken to such heights I could
                                scarcely move my body and yet in that
                                place I was so connected to God and 
                                lifted up I was less aware of my body.
                                Walking to and from the altar for communion
                                was exerting the physical body which
                                I just didn't want to move. So I walked
                                slowly to communion to try to remain as
                                deeply as possible in that place.

                            For me to be in those places it is going beyond
                                the self and so one that calls attention
                                to the self where they have imposed
                                upon me a self consciousness is
                                truly an enemy to me arriving at
                                heights of existing in Him in ecstatic

                            The very things I talk about I know so very
                                very well, the places of highest union
                                where I touch Him and I know things
                                so very deep in my soul and He exists so
                                deeply in me, the reality of God's love and 
                                existence is what is so intently real to me
                                and there is so much satisfaction from
                                this deep union in Him. I truly know I 
                                was created for this.
                            It is a state of pleasure so far beyond
                                anything here and the want of that
                                state leaves me in a desert-land of 
                                longing for this place of ecstatic union
                                of existing in Him.

                            And Fr. Carter understood so much of this.
                                From the very beginning when I began to
                                describe the experiences of intense suffering
                                I had undergone with Mary in 1994,
                                where I knew the sorrows of her heart,
                                knew that place as she stood beneath
                                the cross, as He acted on my soul with
                                graces, not because I sat and thought
                                about it, or formulated thoughts,
                                but because in an instant when in
                                deep prayer He took me to places,
                                not initiated by me in any way
                                and gave me deep knowledge within
                                my being of her and her sorrows.

                                I was in her heart under the cross,
                            holding her Son after He was taken
                            down from the cross, experiencing
                            the many facets of the heart of Mary
                            and she spoke inside of me as
                            she delivered the message.


Sorrowful Mother    

Mary's Message from the Rosary of August 27, 1996

Mary speaks:  I stood beneath the cross of my Son, and my Heart was in such pain for I saw Him before my eyes. I saw Him covered with blood. I saw Him die. My Heart, my children, my Heart to watch my Son, but my Heart, my Heart, how I suffered for my little children of the world that give in to this world and give up the love of my Son. O my little children of light, I give you this message. Carry this light into the darkness for your Mother Mary, for I stood beneath the cross and I cried. I cried for the little ones. I cried for the young ones, the ones that do not care and will lose their souls. How do I make you see for you will not listen to me? What can I do? I come. I appear. I beg. I plead. I give you these gifts from my Son, and you reject me. I do not deliver messages very often anymore for I have been ignored. The message is the same. You do not read the messages I have given to you. Please help me. Help the little children. I appear. I appear. I appear, and I am ignored. I stood beneath the cross, and I cried. I cried, and my Heart was in such anguish for my little children, for I am searching for them this day as I searched for the Child Jesus. Please, please help me. I cannot hold back the hand of my Son any longer. I am Mary, your Mother. I ask you to help my children. You are my children of light.

February 27, 2002 message continues

Messenger:         I felt the words come from within, without
                                thoughts of my own as They used my
                                mouth to say what she said and
                                the emotions of my heart were
                                not from my emotions, but the
                                emotions of Mary that filled me
                                as she spoke.

                            And I know the places and the heart of
                                Mary as in the batting of an eye, They
                                possess my soul and fill me with
                                knowledge of Themselves.

                            This is what happens to me when I do a
                                rosary from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

                            The person too close to me can be an
                                irritation or distraction next to me if
                                they answer loudly or are leading
                                the rosary. They can keep me thinking
                                of what they will do.

                            In these states, I am not really thinking
                                like we do every day,

                                the opening to this place is opened
                               and I am operated on from God.

                            They speak to me, They speak
                               through me, I let go and I am
                               directed by God or Mary
                               what to do.

                            The words come from a place
                                deep within, not formulated
                                by my thoughts.

                            The messages I write are given to
                            I never stop writing to think, formulate,
                                work on sentence structure,
                                I don't look for words, there
                                is a knowing inside of me

                                at times I gleefully write with
                                the joy of hearing the formation
                                of the words from Him as one
                                revels at a company of musicians
                                playing a symphony.

                            He delivers: I am soft, open, supple,
                                selfless and He acts on my soul.

                            I am His messenger.

                            What is the Mass to me?
                            There were so many, many Masses I
                                attended in the little chapel at
                                Fr. Carter's Jesuit residence house.



February 27, 2002 message continues

Messenger:        Before each Mass I knew I might be able 
                                to be taken in that ecstatic place.

                            The devil would work on every earthly
                                distraction he could to keep me 
                                from being able to be so selfless
                                and unattached. Before Mass I would
                                be distracted by problems and the 
                                peoples of the world.
                            Our Lord told me to restrict my conversation
                                before Mass for the devil would seem to 
                                work in this to keep me focused
                                on problems and issues.

                            There was terrible anxiety for me many
                                times before Mass because I longed
                                so deeply to be in those ecstatic
                                experiences of existing in Him 
                                in such a heighten degree where
                                He would implant such deep
                                knowledge of Himself on my soul.

                            At times everything seemed as a distraction
                                and I would never get to the altar
                                of sacrifice where I could lose
                                myself in Him and enter into
                                these ecstatic unions with Him
                                in which He acted on my soul.

                            On the way to Church the devil would work
                                in feelings inside of me that seemed
                                to be so strong to make me
                                cry and keep me focused on
                                myself and things that happened.

                            I felt many times as if I was fighting a
                                lot of devils to get to the altar.
                                And lots of times I gave in and
                                then didn't experience the joy
                                that, that Mass may have brought

                            The devil works in trying to create thoughts
                                of division between us and others,
                                he works in emotions where we
                                begin to think others may be thinking
                                this about us or sometimes we may think
                                others are not acting in very nice ways
                                because of their imperfections.

                            The bottom line is, if God is about to
                                take you in an ecstatic union
                                that gives such pleasure to the
                                soul, why give into the little
                                distraction to focus on the faults
                                of others and what they are thinking
                                of you.

                            To reach a plateau of perfection and
                                ecstatic union in the Mass
                                I had to fight off the interferences
                                of temptations by the devil to get me
                                focused on myself or others. I had to
                                focus on God and my desire to be
                                so intimately united to Him.

                            My love affair with God waits.

                            The union of the soul with the bridegroom.

                            He escorts His bride to His chambers
                                and there He lavishly outpours
                                His love in a deep way in which
                                the soul can know the presence
                                of Father, Son and Holy Spirit so
                                deeply. He can enlighten the soul
                                and give grace that lifts the soul
                                into heights of a deep experience
                                of existing in Him.

                            I connect with My Father, (God the Father)
                             He is real to me.
                            My greatest desire is to be possessed
                                by God and completely possessed by
                                Him for all eternity.
                            My soul is satisfied by God.

                            I know this place of ecstatic union.

                            It would be like trying to describe in words
                                what goes on in a heart when there is love.

                            Words do not exist to describe the deep
                                love I have in my heart for others.

                            But words surely do not exist for me to
                                describe ecstatic union with God,
                                but the reality of it and knowing
                                that I seek deeper completeness
                                in Him is what I live for.

                            I shout to Him, oh my God, more, more
                                more, the knowledge You impart
                                to me of Yourself is that which
                                feeds my soul and satisfies me.

                            This is how it will be in the Church
                                during the Reign of the Sacred Heart
                                when we reach a greater maturity
                                in our relationship with Him.

                            This is a soul living as the bride of Christ.
                                Mary is our model. The Spirit floods the
                                soul with lights or consolations that help
                                us know greater insights into the hidden
                                mysteries of God's love.

                            A busy body, must stop and take time to be
                                in the presence of God.

                            It was a battle for me to get to the altar
                                many times and put aside the distractions
                                the devil would help me to create to
                                take me from those heights of 
                                existing in Him.

                            There is a place I know, filled with
                                light and warmth and joy and
                                it is found as He takes the
                                initiative and outpours His
                                grace and acts on my soul.

                            I am the soul waiting His favor!!

                            It's called communication with God.

                            It's called letting go and letting
                                Him consume the soul.

                            It's called being soft and supple.

                            It's called getting rid of division
                                and envy, jealousy in the
                                heart and focusing only on
                                Him and that moment of 

                            I remember in early January of
                                1996, I saw Him transfigured
                                several times in the front
                                of Holy Cross-Immaculata.

                            The first time, the devil seemed he
                                put before me every irritation
                                and focus to try to get me
                                irritated or focused on some
                                irritating issue.

                            The phone seems to be a way the devil
                                can work, but with our children
                                many times we can't ignore their call
                                and the needs they have, but we have
                                to remain loving and handling
                                the problems with love
                                even though the issues may
                                be very difficult and seem
                                to test our patience at great

                            I know there were many times I gave
                                into the distractions, the divisions
                                and missed the opportunity
                                for great grace to be so deeply
                                wrapped in God's love in the 

                            We must respond with love in our heart,
                                love for God and love for others
                                when I am acting on something.  

                            But at times I had to fight the emotions
                                inside like on a battle line to remain
                                connected to another person if I
                                wanted myself to be taken to a place
                                of being able to even pray deeply
                                at Mass and other times of prayer.

                            The devil is real and he doesn't
                                want deep prayer, he doesn't
                                want the soul receiving lights
                                and favors from God.

                            The devil doesn't want us loving God.

                            God wants a loving union.
                            Intellectual measures may be used by
                                God to trigger a deep experience
                                with Him, but many times when
                                a priest got up and talked so deeply
                                about intellectual things, it
                                acted as a big distraction to my
                                loving union with God when I 
                                felt God carrying me away
                                in His loving embrace.

                            The devil is the enemy.
                            The devil is real.
                            The devil tries to get us to focus on ourselves.

                            How would it be if a husband and
                                wife go to a romantic encounter
                                and he pulls out his deep scientific
                                studies and goes into a deep
                                scientific discussion of how
                                the cells divide or something?

                            It may be interesting and God can
                                use intellectual things to act on
                                a soul,

                                but the Mass is the gift of love
                                where the Divine God give Himself
                                in the most loving union to
                                the soul.

                            It is the place, in the Mass, where
                                God outpours His grace on the
                                soul ready and waiting His
                            He is the initiator, He is the
                                bridegroom, He is the one who
                                leads, we are the bride,
                                the one waiting His favor.

                            He acts on the soul.

                            And thus on the first days of Lent
                                in 1998 He gave me this prayer


A Prayer for Intimacy with the Lamb,
the Bridegroom of the Soul

    Oh Lamb of God, Who take away the sins of the world, come and act on my soul most intimately. I surrender myself, as I ask for the grace to let go, to just be as I exist in You and You act most intimately on my soul. You are the Initiator. I am the soul waiting Your favors as You act in me. I love You. I adore You. I worship You. Come and possess my soul with Your Divine Grace, as I experience You most intimately.


February 27, 2002 message continues

Messenger:        and during Lent, daily the
                                writings called The Spouse of the

                            It was so wonderful, when
                                I received these writings
                                these days of Lent.

                            I saw Him, He was dressed as a bridegroom,
                                as I went to communion in
                                Light of Christ Church in

                                I had visions of myself as His
                           bride, I experienced the deepest union
                           with the lights He imparted
                           on my soul. The light of knowing
                           His love. The light of knowing Him as the Divine
                           Bridegroom I remember
                           so deeply in my soul these experiences
                           when He acted on my soul. I
                           crave this deep ecstatic union with
                           Him. I want to be possessed by
                           God. I want completeness in Him.

                       I love it. He acts on my soul.
                       A song in church can touch me
                           so deeply, because it is a
                           love union I have with Him and the
                           songs can touch my heart.

                       For many Masses, He would outpour
                           His grace and touch my soul
                           so deeply in the Word and
                           impart to me the deepest
                           knowledge in the reading
                           of Scripture.

                       He feeds the soul with His

                       Fr. Carter wrote in the Priestly
                           Newsletter about the
                           Bread of life, it is
                           His Word and the Eucharist.



John 6: 35-59

Jesus answered them:

I am the bread of life.
No one who comes to me will ever hunger;
no one who believes in me will ever thirst.
But, as I have told you,
you can see me and still you do not believe.
Everyone whom the Father gives me
    will come to me;
I will certainly not reject
anyone who comes to me,
because I have come from heaven,
not to do my own will,
but to do the will of him who sent me.
Now the will of him who sent me
is that I should lose nothing
of all that he has given to me,
but that I should raise it up
    on the last day.
It is my Father’s will
that whoever sees the Son
    and believes in him
should have eternal life,
and that I should raise that person up
    on the last day.

Meanwhile the Jews were complaining to each other about him, because he had said, ‘I am the bread that has come down from heaven.’ They were saying, ‘Surely this is Jesus son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know. How can he now say, “I have come down from heaven?” ’ Jesus said in reply to them, ‘Stop complaining to each other.

‘No one can come to me
unless drawn by the Father who sent me,
and I will raise that person up
    on the last day.
It is written in the prophets:
They will all be taught by God;
everyone who has listened to the Father,
and learnt from him,
comes to me.
Not that anybody has seen the Father,
except him who has his being from God:
he has seen the Father.
In all truth I tell you,
everyone who believes has eternal life.
I am the bread of life.
Your fathers ate manna in the desert
and they are dead;
but this is the bread
    which comes down from heaven,
so that a person may eat it and not die.
I am the living bread
    which has come down from heaven.
Anyone who eats this bread 
    will live for ever;
and the bread that I shall give
is my flesh, for the life of the world.’

Then the Jews started arguing among themselves, ‘How can this man give us his flesh to eat?’ Jesus replied to them:

In all truth I tell you,
if you do not eat
    the flesh of the Son of man
and drink his blood,
you have no life in you.
Anyone who does eat my flesh
    and drink my blood
has eternal life,
and I shall raise that person up
    on the last day.
For my flesh is real food
and my blood is real drink.
Whoever eats my flesh
    and drinks my blood
lives in me
and I live in that person.
As the living Father sent me
and I draw life from the Father,
so whoever eats me
will also draw life from me.
This is the bread
    which has come down from heaven;
it is not like the bread our ancestors ate:
they are dead,
but anyone who eats this bread
    will live for ever.

This is what he taught at Capernaum in the synagogue.



Excerpt from Priestly Newsletter 1996 November/December, 
edited by Fr. Edward J. Carter, S.J.

The Word of God

    "I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd is one who lays down his life for his sheep. The hired man, since he is not the shepherd and the sheep do not belong to him, abandons the sheep and runs away as soon as he sees a wolf coming, and then the wolf attacks and scatters the sheep; this is because he is only a hired man and has no concern for the sheep. I am the good shepherd; I know my own and my own know me, just as the Father knows me and I know the Father; and I lay down my life for my sheep." (Jn 10:11-151)

    A faithful shepherd takes care of his sheep in all their needs. This includes providing them with the proper food. Jesus, the perfect Shepherd, abundantly provides for the nourishment of His flock. In the Eucharist, He gives Himself in His body, blood, soul, and divinity, for our spiritual growth. He also feeds us through His word, through His teaching. The gospel of John, in Chapter 6:35-59, combines both of these ways, Christ nourishing us through His teaching and through the Eucharist. This particular section of John's gospel gives us Jesus' great discourse on the Bread of Life. The first part, verses 35-50, speaks of the teaching of Jesus as nourishment. This first part contains, therefore, the so-called sapiential theme. The second part, versus 51-59, speaks of the Eucharist as our heavenly nourishment. This part, therefore, contains the sacramental theme.

    Concerning the teaching of Jesus which has been left to His Church, the Second Vatican Council states: "But in order to keep the gospel forever whole and alive within the Church, the apostles left bishops as their successors, 'handing over their own teaching role' to them. This sacred tradition, therefore, and sacred Scripture of both the Old and the New Testament are like a mirror in which the pilgrim Church on earth looks at God, from whom she has received everything, until she is brought finally to see Him as He is, face to face."2

    We priests have a special privilege and responsibility to nourish ourselves with the teachings of Jesus. The more we meditate on this teaching, the more we love it, the more we ourselves live it, the more apt instruments we become in assisting the Good Shepherd in the feeding of His flock.

Messenger:    He feeds us with both His Word and
                           Himself in the Eucharist.

                       The devil wants us focused on
                           ourselves at Mass.

                       The soul wants oneness. We feel happy
                           when we are deeply united to others in
                           great oneness.

                       The Mass can unite us in deep oneness
                           with each other.

                       The devil wants people to feel
                           divided at Mass, the devil
                           wants people to think—
                           think about what other
                           people are thinking about
                           them, the devil wants us
                           looking at others and ourselves
                           and measuring things.

                       The Mass is to unite us.
                       We must see ourselves as one.
                       We need to feel union in our hearts.
                       We have to fight distractions of the
                           devil to divide us, be
                           competitive, worry what
                           others think of us —
                           giving into dividing thoughts are blocks to
                           ecstatic union with God in
                           the Mass and being in that
                           place where we can deeply touch our God.

                       I am not saying we have complete control
                           over this.

                       God may allow us to be tested, and tried
                           and tempted by the devil and we
                           may feel such a temptation to be
                           divided with another He wants us
                           to be united to, to do His work, that
                           we almost feel we can't make
                           peace with them.

                       When the stakes are high, when God
                           has called people to do His work
                           to help save many souls, the
                           devil can press down with
                           his tactics to divide souls that
                           need deeply to unite for the
                           sake of the Kingdom.

                       Faith, we must have faith. We must
                           focus on His Might no matter how
                           hopeless some things may feel
                           sometimes. We must see with His eyes.

                       We stay focused on His Plan.

                       We know the Victory has been won.

                       See Moses and all the opposition he had.

                       God is a God of might.

                       Look how He tested Abraham.

                       This is God!!

                       Why do we not think He would test us
                           when we come to the altar.

                       And oh the rewards of being
                           embraced by God, of existing
                           so deeply in Him.

                       I went into these deep places of existing
                           in Him when Fr. Carter was alive.
                           I saw lights.
                           I knew the burning fire of His Heart.
                           I knew the place He took me
                               when I existed so deeply in God,
                               Father, Son and Holy Spirit December 15, 1995.

                       Now Fr. Carter is gone.
                       He experiences the fullness of life, he told
                           me I could never be completely satisfied here below.

                       I am here and that which my heart craves
                           so deeply seems so far away,
                           the cross seems so heavy on my back,
                           I suffer so with the blindness of the earth,
                           I want so deeply those moments I
                               receive after Communion and in
                               the Mass.
                       I love it when He speaks to me and
                           touches my soul and gives
                           me His light.

                       I love the blinding light of
                           the knowledge of Himself
                           He imparts to me.

                       I love the warmth of the place I
                           know deep within His Heart.

                       What seemed so far away for Father
                           some day is now here.

                       I see myself and in the realm of the unknown
                           I wonder how He will take me
                           or how much I will suffer or
                           could I get cancer like my mom
                           or Fr. Carter or Fr. Jim Willig—

                       How good would I handle the physical
                           pain if He gave it to me before
                           I died.

                       So much of my pain now is so
                           very real, but it is
                           emotional pain, suffering
                           to not have Him so completely,
                           longing for Him, deep suffering
                           for sin in the world, suffering
                           for the untruth taught to
                           children, sin of men that
                           really offends God...

                       Oh I do miss the daily visits of Mary and the places
                           I have been taken in live rosaries...

                       In these days of lent we may experience tremendous
                           suffering, we have to let go and let Him
                           take us through lent, the way He
                           wants to act on our soul.

                       He has lessons to teach us as we carry our
                           cross identifying with Him on the way
                           to Calvary, but we should never
                           forget—He is the teacher, let
                           go and let Him teach us during

                       Sometimes we become so controlling to
                           do our own program during lent we
                           forget about the underlying issue
                           for everything—What pleases God
                           is love—deeper love of Him and
                           love of each other.

                       If whatever program I put myself on makes
                           me unloving I am not doing what
                           I should do when I am unloving.
                           God wants love. That is the bottom line.
                           Every day can be lived simply if we quit
                           getting so many things that are unnecessary
                           and our agenda that makes us
                           irritable and unloving.

                       Who is running the show?

Jesus speaks:   Do you throw Me little crumbs, when I want
                              a heart consumed with love for Me?
                          How do you treat each other?
                          Do you give yourself an agenda of things to
                              do to please Me and when you do
                              them you really hurt others.
                          Let Me be the lead on your journey this lent.
                              I may give you a heavy cross to carry and
                              it is to teach you a mighty lesson,
                              why do you do everything you can
                              to avoid it?
                              Do I have to give it to you over and over
                              Your soul must be more perfected to
                                  be with Me for all eternity in heaven.
                              Do you want to learn it here below?
                              Do you fight the lessons I give you to
                                  help you grow in holiness.
                              Are you doing a Lenten practice 
                                  that is making you unloving and
                                  actually dividing you from Me?
                              I want love.
                              I want your soul perfected.
                              I want you to be united to Me.
                              I want you to operate on My agenda,
                                  not one you make up that really
                                  conflicts with the Father's will for you.

                          Every moment you should live to love
                              and serve your God and do
                              His will.

                          I am the bridegroom, you are the bride,
                              the bride serves her husband.

                          Let go, you and your agendas, oh
                              you make it so complicated—
                              your little duties you give yourself
                              that eat up lots of your time—

                          I want your love.
                          Some of you never sit still and spend
                              a moment alone with Me all day.
                          What a bride!
                          You are really busy—never stopping to
                          be embraced by the bridegroom of
                              your soul.

                          The Church is My bride.
                          How are you teaching others to be
                              a bride?

                          How are you teaching them about being
                              the Spouse of the Lamb.

                          Oh my priests—Why don't you shout it
                              to the world about the True
                              Presence and

                          Why don't you tell the children
                              about how I feed them
                              with My Body and Blood and
                              My Word.

                          Your children in the Church are
                              starving and you have
                              the Eucharist!! You have
                              My Word.

                          Parents tell your children about
                              the Eucharist. Show them how
                              you treasure this gift!!

Take Up Your Cross

God's Blue Book I Cover

December 18, 1993

Jesus speaks:  Pain? Oh, how I suffered! The pain was so intense, I could hardly bear it. I was so wounded and so covered with blood. Think of a little gash and how it hurts when it begins to bleed. I bled and I bled all over. Such intense pain. Every time you experience pain, think of Me and how minute your little pain is. There was not a place on My body that was not covered with blood. There were deep wounds all over Me. My head throbbed from the crown they had placed on Me and I was forced to carry a big cross so heavy, I scarce could move it on My shoulder. My shoulder ached so badly I felt as if it was constantly breaking by the weight of the cross. But I carried it and pushed on My way. If I stopped, I was poked and pushed and hit. The crowd jeered and they forced Me on My way. What crime had I committed? Why was I forced to endure such torture? It was out of love of you that I continued that journey. I was God. I could have stopped at any moment. I was obedient to death to the demands of My Father.

    Pain, child? I suffered so much for love of you! This is how I love you at this moment. In all that befalls you you must know at every moment that I know exactly what you are suffering. There is nothing that happens in your life without My consent and it comes from Him Who loves you.

    Take your crosses and truly endure them. Accept them. Know that everything that happens in your life I have allowed. Accept it with the love with which I give it. You are being taught in that pain. You are suffering for yourselves and others. I endured all that pain. Did I once say, "Father, take it away?" I am your model. I showed you the way. I took it all, every last wound, every kick and smack and vileness. I took My cross and I carried it without a word. This is what I ask of you. Know that when you are experiencing pain or suffering, or being taunted by those around you, look to the Master for your course of action. I took it all, every last wound, and accepted it to My death. I did not say, "Oh, how awful." I did not complain. I walked in silence that bumpy road with a heavy cross, with My mother suffering by My side and I never complained. I accepted it all for love of you.

    Carry your crosses, little ones. They are gifts from Me. Do not look for an explanation or a way to get rid of them. I will take them when I think you have had enough. It is in suffering that you experience My life more fully. It is in suffering that I speak to you in a special way. Endure it. I know every ache and pain you are experiencing. I am this close to you! Your pain may save a soul dead in sin or get a soul from purgatory. Accept all I send you and don't complain. A lot of the pain is enhanced by your rejection. A lot of your lessons are lost by your refusal to see that crosses come from Me. I give you crosses to share in My suffering. I love you so much, little ones. Know how personal I am with you: the very hairs of your head are numbered. Come close to Me and look into My eyes. I am truly here with you at every single moment. Think of Me as a person, but I am closer than any person could ever be! I am there and I know your every breath and I care about your every breath. Who could even do this for another? Others would have to sometimes think of themselves.

    I am God and I can think of you at every instant. I am so close to you you do not have any comprehension. It is not a myth. I am truly present to you at every instant. Feel My presence. Make Me alive to you. Experience all I have to give you. You will know Me as your personal Jesus the more you read and re-read these letters. I write them to each of you. Only God could love you each this way. Focus on Me and you and how close I am to you. I love you so, little one. Whence you go you never walk alone. I walked a road of torture that led to My death for love of you! When will you realize what I say is true? When will you know how close I am to you and embrace Me as I so desire? You hold yourself back because you do not focus on My love for you. I would walk that path this day for you. I love you the same this moment as I did then. Oh, little one, you want to put your little crosses down so fast. Hold them and walk awhile with Me down the road to Calvary. Be by My side and share a little in how intently I trod out of love of you.

    I am Jesus, Son of the Living God. I am alive in this room with you. I am by your side. A toothache, you say-what pain! Accept your pain. I want you to feel that pain now. It will go away.* It is so little. Heartache I know, heartache to love each of My children so much and be ignored or put at arm's length! Do you know how it is to love another and not have their love? I long for your love with Me, but you are busy. You do not have the time to be with Me while I await thee. I am an ardent lover Who waits for each of My children to come and experience this great love. You stay away from Me Who is always waiting and you search this barren desert for that which I have to give you. I watch you in this search and want you to come home to My heart. I am waiting for you, little one. Don't keep yourself from Me. Remember how I suffered for love of you. When you feel a pain, remember the pain I suffered for love of you. That is how I love you this very day. Take your cross and walk with Me. Come and be with Me. I have that which your hungry soul craves.

    I am your loving Jesus. I love you, child. You do not know. I wait to be closer to you. You must see Me as this personal and this alive in your life! Oh, sweet one, I love you to My death and I love you this way today. I lament My children lost in darkness. I want to be united to you. Come and make Me the center of your life. I wait for you!

R. *My toothache is gone!

Excerpt from the Mass Book


    The place Jesus took me was into the deepest recesses of His Heart. I was enveloped in His burning love. It was a red room with heat and an intense glow. I was swept away in this embrace, and I only existed in Him. The power of the Almighty God enveloped me, and I only existed in Him. There was no fear, for I was existent in this Almighty Being. My heart was wrapped in the eternal embrace of this Supreme Being. The security, the power I know was His deep presence in which I existed.

    I knew the room was red and warm. I knew His immenseness, but I felt my own completeness in Him. I did not feel little, as a speck, but elevated and empowered for I existed then in Him in a most special way.

    I was overtaken by the love of God. The fire of the Holy Spirit filled me. I was absorbed by the love of the Father, and I existed IN Him and in the deepest recesses of the Heart of Jesus. Our heaven on earth is these inner chambers of His magnificent Heart - the Heart of the Almighty God, with all the power, with omnipotence, with the fire of the love of God. He took me to the deepest chamber of this fiery Heart, and in that moment, I touched eternity, for I knew what it was to be enveloped in the deep furnace of His love. I now want to exist in this chamber of His Heart, swept away in His burning love, absorbed in my every cell with His love.

    We do not understand the fire of His love. We do not understand what it is to be absorbed by love itself. He took me to the inner, deepest chamber of His Heart, and I felt the heat and knew the presence of love itself, and there was no fear, only a feeling of completeness, omnipotence, all-embracing, penetrating love - a power indescribable in words, a saturation of my being in the presence of God, and I was as I was created to be - living in Him!

    This is how I will forever live my life, saturated with His divine life and love deep within this inner chamber of His burning Heart, living in Him as He possesses my being, and I operate with His power in me.

    Little creatures though we are, we are His, His power, His life, flowing through us. In Him, we are as the Father intended: one in Him, each one of us, dwelling in this fiery furnace of His love. With our fears quieted and our hearts empowered by His life, we live forever in Him - in the Heart of Jesus.

    Let no man separate what God has joined together. I am wed in the deepest love with my beloved Spouse, wed to the Heart of Jesus. As I am, I am one in Him. I live and I breathe in Him. He, Who is love, He Who is our all, He Who is mighty and without limits, He Who is, He Who is God and as I live, He lives in me in this world.

    I am wed to Him, and I shall not fear for He is God - one, complete, loving, God. Heart of Jesus, I place my trust in Thee. As I live, I live in Your most adorable Heart, the furnace of God's love!

                          3) Read My Word —

                          lead all men to consecrate
                              their hearts to Our 2 hearts

                          lead all men to consecrate their
                              places to our 2 hearts



April 12, 1999

Jesus speaks: I wish a card to be circulated extensively. All that is necessary to consecrate a place to My Heart and My Mother's Heart is that the people wish to do so and say that they consecrate the place and the people that dwell there to Our Hearts. It is understood that you are entrusting people who live or come there to the care of Our Two Hearts. Pictures or statues of the Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart should be displayed somewhere in the dwelling. Some persons, if not all, should spend time in devotion to the Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart before the pictures, daily if possible. This consecration should be renewed daily if possible.

I wish all who receive this message to circulate this material so that the whole world will be consecrated to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

The Priestly Newsletter Book II was released to 
    the production floor at the printer 
    today - Valentine's Day. 

It is a special gift of God's love to the Church.






February 7, 2002


To whom it may concern,

    We circulate the Priestly Newsletter that goes to 75,000 priests in the world. This has been circulated since 1994 at the direction of Fr. Edward Carter, S.J. who had a doctorate in Theology and taught at Xavier University for over thirty years and author of eighteen books on the spiritual life and many other various publications.

    Our primary purpose is to circulate this Newsletter. We are now sending three years of Newsletters in a book of 342 pages to 75,000 priests in the United States and 90 foreign countries. A special Newsletter is enclosed with Father Carter's powerful writing on Grace (2001 issue 1). This writing is also available on tape and on disc.

    Our coequal purpose is to circulate prayer manuals Father Carter compiled for prayer chapters praying for the priests, the Church and
the world.

    All of our printing and postage costs so much money.

    We operate from the Virgin Mary building in Clearwater, Florida, pictures are enclosed. We use the building to spread materials and rosaries
to encourage people to pray for the priests, the Church and the world.

    We also have a church we received from the diocese in China, Indiana where we distribute our materials and pray before the Blessed Sacrament hourly and about two hours or more at 6:20 every day. Monthly adoration before the exposed Eucharist is held for our members for 48 hours on the 12th of each month to the 14th.

    We have a third center in Morrow, Ohio which is our communication center and mailing address.

    We circulate rosaries handmade to Catholic schools all over the United States and meditation sheets and consecration cards. We try to send scapulars too when we have them. We supply many beads to our rosary makers for this.

    We had difficulty all last summer securing funds for beads for our rosary makers. We were not able to send the 100,000 or more rosaries we usually send in October and May because of funds.

    We need $10,000 every month for the loan on the Virgin Mary building. We pray nightly there usually for about two hours or more at 6:20. We pray all through the day there, hourly, many times before the image. A big prayer meeting is held on the 5th of the month. Prayers are prayed for about 4 hours for the priests, the Church and the world. We broadcast to at least 8 states and all join in the prayers, including Morrow and China.

    We have a nursing home ministry and a prison ministry. We supply coloring books of the rosary mysteries and the Mass to children.

    We desperately need funds for the printing and the rosary making operation and all the postage. Bishops from foreign countries beg for rosaries and prayer sheets with the Shepherds of Christ Prayers.

    Now we are struggling with the monthly rent on the building and the postage for the foreign mailing of the Priestly Newsletter Book II.

    We always need money for the rosary beads for the schools and the Virgin Mary building.

    We also do a Holy Spirit Novena, but the little book has been out of print for some time because of lack of funds. Teachers like to use it for confirmation. We have prayer chapters using it daily all over the world.

    We want to circulate pictures of the crucifix and Mary's image on the building, we are unable to do this because of lack of funds. Enclosed are pictures of the crucifix and the Virgin Mary building.

    A very important part of our Movement is trying to get people to say the Morning Offering. Here is a card we distribute extensively, especially to Nursing Homes and school children.


    Here is a short form of consecration to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary that we circulate extensively.


    Can you help us. It is a real shame to not even have rent on the building Mary appears on.

    We need to tell the world about the Mass. This is another important aspect of our ministry. We have so many writings about the Mass. Mass Book I with the Imprimatur—and all Fr. Carter's writings and many other writings discerned by Fr Carter before his death. 

    It is a shame with all the money in the world not to be able to get the rosary beads to the rosary makers for school children who want them to pray the rosary.

    Our movement is trying to do what Our Lady told us to do at Fatima for peace in the world.

    Can you help us?
