Glorious Mysteries

 

R. So I always do 4 days of retreat, so the first day is the Joyful, the second day is the Mysteries of Light, the third day is the Sorrowful Mysteries and the 4th day is the Glorious Mysteries. So today again, I will meditate on the Glorious Mysteries.

The Resurrection

1. R. As we meditated on the readings during Lent, we saw how God was calling us to greater holiness, to dying to those things, that are not likened to Him. And on Holy Saturday night the readings are so just tremendously awesome. We see the reading of Genesis, and how Adam and Eve sinned. And we see the readings, the seven, if they do all seven of those, and we are given great gifts, as we relish every word that is in that special service on that Holy Night. In listening to the words of the Exultant, which are so absolutely beautiful, we can see that Christ, the New Adam, is our model, and we hear the words of the Father, who speaks to us, "This is my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased."

    In all of our imperfections, because of our wounded human nature, because of the sin of Adam and Eve, many times, we fail to recognize that these tendencies are in us, because of our wounded human nature, and so therefore, we see God with imperfect vision, because we have a wounded human nature. We look at each other with imperfect vision - jealousy, anger, greed, lust, seeking dominance for dominance sake - all the tendencies, because of our wounded human nature, and not only that, we look at ourselves with imperfect vision.

    God, when He gave to me the Blue Books, would say that, He is giving to me the vision of God. It's like parking the car in the parking space. When we look at one another, we look with tainted eyes, because of the wounded human nature. The more we are filled with God's precious grace, the more our wounded human nature is healed, the more that we can be more likened to God, more like the Father desires. The Father who says, "This is my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased." The Father sent Jesus, His Son into this world, the New Adam, the Almighty God, to show us how to be pure and more perfected.

    It is in denying these weakened tendencies, that we have in our wounded human nature, that we can fall into the trap, of thinking that we are perfect. And so it says, in 1 John —

1 John 1: 10

If we say, ‘We have never sinned,’
we make him a liar,
and his word has no place in us.

 — for we look imperfectly, and we fall into sin, and we have a lifetime of trying to be more perfected. The gift that God gives to us, is the Bread of Life. He gives to us His precious grace, as we go to the Eucharist. And as we read His Word, the Bread of Life, nourishing and feeding us, to be more like the Son of God.

Genesis 1: 27

.    God created man in the image of himself, 
    in the image of God he created him, 
    male and female he created them. 

    It is so awesome in Genesis, as we read, that we were created, in the image and likeness of God, and yet although, it says at the end of chapter 1 of Genesis, we were created in the image and likeness of God, we see in chapter 3, how Adam and Eve wanted to be equal to God. They disobeyed God. The story that we must embrace through all of this Lent, is the dying, more and more, to those imperfections, bad habits, sins that we have, our lack of forgiving one another, and choosing love, dying to ourselves, that we will be like the New Adam.

Genesis 3: 2-6

The woman answered the snake, 'We may eat the fruit of the trees in the garden. But of the fruit of the tree in the middle of the garden God said, "You must not eat it, nor touch it, under pain of death." ' Then the snake said to the woman, 'No! You will not die! God knows in fact that the day you eat it your eyes will be opened and you will be like gods, knowing good from evil.' The woman saw that the tree was good to eat and pleasing to the eye, and that it was enticing for the wisdom that it could give. So she took some of its fruit and ate it. She also gave some to her husband who was with her, and he ate it.

    The readings are so beautiful on Holy Saturday Night, and the readings from Romans reminding us,

Romans 6: 3-11

You cannot have forgotten that all of us, when we were baptised into Christ Jesus, were baptised into his death. So by our baptism into his death we were buried with him, so that as Christ was raised from the dead by the Father’s glorious power, we too should begin living a new life. If we have been joined to him by dying a death like his, so we shall be by a resurrection like his; realising that our former self was crucified with him, so that the self which belonged to sin should be destroyed and we should be freed from the slavery of sin. Someone who has died, of course, no longer has to answer for sin. 

    But we believe that, if we died with Christ, then we shall live with him too. We know that Christ has been raised from the dead and will never die again. Death has no power over him any more. For by dying, he is dead to sin once and for all, and now the life that he lives is life with God. In the same way, you must see yourselves as being dead to sin but alive for God in Christ Jesus.

that we are to die to those imperfections that we have, the habits of jealousy, possessiveness, anger, lust, greed, envy, slothfulness, seeking dominance for dominance sake. We are to die more and more, to our imperfect ways, that on Easter, we will shine, more like the New Adam, coming forth from the tomb, in glistening glory, in the most magnificent light, because God is light, and in Him there is no darkness at all. God is love.

    If we do all the things to act holy in the world, that we say, "I'm doing this for the Church, that, for the Church, and we are not loving to the people that God has put us with in our families - we are not being holy like God wants. God has given us this tremendous grace, to be more holy - and we are more holy, because of God's grace - we must recognize that the holiness that we have is because God has graced us, not thinking 'I'm holy, you're not so holy'. We have to co-operate with His grace, but God gives us the precious gift of His grace to be more holy. It is a gift from God. God is working in our lives, to help us, to help one another.

    He has put us in families, put us in communities, put us with each other, that we will help each other to get to heaven. And so if we have a pompous attitude — I am holy, and I will tell you what to do — we must go to God and say, "My brother is hurting, but I want to be as You want me to be, God. I am thankful for the grace that You have given to me. I need prayers that I will act according to Your will, not pompously and pridefully. But what will be accomplished is the conversion of the other, in deeper holiness as I live a more perfected life in You living for Your honor and glory."

    I have one thing to say about this mystery. The victory is won. Let us ask God to help us be humble in our hearts, that He can instruct us and teach us, how to be likened, more and more, to Him. In the world today, the attitude is, "I know it all , don't tell me nothing." We can not have that attitude with God. God is Almighty, all Powerful. God knows all things, God knows every motive inside of our heart, and why we act. God is love. To be likened to Him, we must love. To live our lives as God intends, we are to obey the commandment of God, which is to love God above all things, and to love our neighbor as ourselves. This is the command, from God, not a suggestion.

    We have only a short amount of time here, to live to help to build His Kingdom, to live in love, to live to be more likened to our Heavenly Father. In this rosary, and in this Hail Mary, I pray for the grace of healing, that the Holy Spirit will flood us with His wisdom, that we will be saturated more and more, with God's grace, that as we go to the Immaculate Heart of Our Mother, the Holy Spirit will work in us, bringing us forth, more and more, children of the light, in this darkened world, to spread the light of Christ, in our very being. For God has outpoured His grace to us abundantly. We will be held accountable for what we did in our lives, and using our gifts as God has given to us. God help us utilize our gifts.

2. R. And so it is a long journey, these days of Lent, the 40 days, and likewise, the days of Easter, the 40 days — the days in which God comes to us, and if we are docile and humble and willing, and wanting to grow, more and more, in this perfection — if we let Him, He can help us burn off more and more, of our imperfections — We must give our will to Him. We are like gold tested in fire. He is working in us, all through this Lent, but every moment of every day, we are to be focused on dying to our imperfect ways and growing in holiness. The world will tell us many times, that we should, try to be dominant over every one else, focus on ourselves and be prideful.

    Jesus is telling us, to focus on our imperfections, and to be more holy, this Lent, not to focus on our brother's sins, but to look at ourselves, that we can grow in greater holiness, and be more united to Him. It is not an easy thing, to live likened to Christ. If we tell ourselves, we just get in the old pilot mode, where I sit in the seat and I'm off, that's not how it is. He's given us all these years of our lives, to try to be, more and more, like the saints, that went before us, likened to Jesus, the Son of God, whose life we meditate on.

    It is a hard journey and so He shows to us, how He carried the cross with our sins, and He had to mount the cross, and die on the cross, for our sins. And many times we just go through our lives saying, "Oh I feel this way, so I will do this." And Jesus says, "You have to be guided by wanting the will of God, and by always acting in love, not as reactors, to the faults of others, but as actors, acting more and more like Christ, according to the Father's will." It is a journey. Christ is our teacher. He outpours His grace in the Eucharist, as we are saturated, more and more, with His life in us, so that we too can say, "I have been crucified with Christ, and yet I am alive" as St. Paul said, "It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me." Death - Resurrection — the Pascal Mystery - every moment of our lives, living out that Pascal Mystery. Our life is a journey and we can't say, we're done, until we're done.

3. R. And now look at the world in the darkness, how sin is treated as - it isn't even sin so many times, not obeying the commandments, the commandment of living, faithfully to your spouse, the commandment that God gives to us, that we should not kill, lie, cheat, bear false witness — the basic commandments, first being to love God with our whole heart, and our whole soul, and our whole being. With the rise of secularism in the world, there are so many that are out there, that do not recognize God as their God.

    After World War II, the chastisement as Mary said at Fatima, if we do not obey her message, was far greater for the men that turned to secularism, that made themselves their own gods. It is for this, that God gave to us the Shepherds of Christ Movement, to spread the consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, that people all over the world will honor Jesus, the Sacred Heart, as the King and Center of their hearts, as the King and Center of their homes, and schools, and churches.

    And so as we spread the Priestly Newsletter, and we are sending it out right now, as we spread the newsletter to the hierarchy and to the priests, we spread what Mary asked us to do at Fatima, and Jesus asked Fr. Carter to spread the devotion to the Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart, to the hierarchy. That dioceses more and more, will be consecrated to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, and that families will be consecrated to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. Mary, Queen of Peace told us what to do at Fatima, to pray the rosary, to spread the consecration to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, and the angel of Portugal told us about how we must be so full of devotion and love for the Eucharist.

4. R. Kathleen and I went to a video store, they had a lot of DVD's of really dark things. It was a whole series, I could not even believe, and we walked by and it had a name, and we were shocked. And you think of yourselves, and how you had each one of your children, and you loved them so deeply, you cared for them, and you wanted the best for them in every way, and yet the world goes, more and more, into many dark ways. But Mary told us at Fatima, the more that we spread the consecration, especially to the bishops, to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, that there will be peace on this earth. Mary told Jacinta that the Sacred Heart of Jesus wishes to be venerate next to the heart of Mary.

5. R. Death - Resurrection. I love these writings during Lent, don't you? — especially every Sunday, as you just look at them — like the blind man was last Sunday, and the lady at the well the Sunday before, thirsting for streams of life giving water. And next Sunday, Lazarus, and Lazarus was brought back from the dead, by Our Lord. He was in the tomb. and they said there may even be a stench, "Jesus don't you know there might be a stench?" One of the things that we miss the most, is our lack of faith. When something really bad happens to us, and we really need to pray to Him and have faith, we can go back to doing something weak, for an assurance, when God is trying to test our faith. I'm not saying if you're really sick, that you don't have to go to the doctor.

    But God gives us great opportunities to have greater faith, ascending steps of greater trust and faith, every day, and we may be strong, and then all of a sudden, we run back in the corner and say — well now lets insure everything in the house to make sure that and — can you really make sure of that — everything in the house is the way that it is, and can you tie it all down? Even in the sickness or the flu, or whatever it is, that He may give us, He may be testing us more and more, stripping us down, as He does, so that, then He can work with us, because we can see how truly vulnerable we are.

    Oh I thought I had it all together. So therefore, I will go around thinking I have it all together, and then something happens, and then we say, "Oh why did this happen? I've been praying, I've been good." And it's the very thing that we really needed, a little bump on the head, for Jesus to say to us, "Hey, you're not trusting enough in Me. You need to have greater faith. You're vulnerable. Tomorrow morning you might not wake up. You must realize that I want to be in your every breath, and your every heartbeat. And even though you have trials and things that you have to handle, you never handled them alone. Your stability, your empowerment is always in that oneness with Me."

    The things that we need to get rid of, is our bad habits, our angriness, our wanting to be dominant, when we are not even suppose to be in charge. Our tendencies of trying to rule, being afraid to let go to God, asking God for something, and then giving Him the time to work on it, rather than saying "Well, He didn't answer me right away, so I am going to go do this," and quickly doing the wrong thing.

    God is with us at every moment, helping us, teaching us, telling us the right time, telling us to wait, even though we're suffering, until it is the time. And don't jump the gun, and try to do something quicker, just because we are anxious, always praying, and relying on His Might. For He knows everything. He knows everything. I don't know what is going to happen to me in the next moment, but He does. He knows everything.

6. And Jesus speaks and He says: I am your Sacred Heart. I am in love with you, and I want you to come to My Heart. There you will know the riches of My Heart, the wisdom of My Heart. In Our Hearts — My Heart and the heart of your Mother, you will know more, your little heaven on earth. As you give your hearts to Our Hearts of purity and love, you will receive, the great riches, waiting for you there.

The Ascension of Our Lord into Heaven

1. R. I love the Liturgy. It is so exciting to even look at all of Lent, and the Sunday readings, and then see all through the daily readings — how the prophets are rejected, how they struggle, and how Christ, the chief prophet is rejected and put to death. God is teaching us that, it is not an easy journey, when we follow Him, but if we walk in His bloody footprints, we will suffer and we will rise. We will have death and resurrection. Suffering and new life.

    It is like that. When we want, sometimes, to have the deepest intimacy with Him, it may be the time that He allows us to suffer the most, and we say, "Well, I thought I was going to have it easy here. I would go to You, sit in front of the tabernacle, have fun with You, God, just being with You. And instead, You are teaching me to tell you of the anxiety that I have, and relying on Your Might and Your grace to let go, and to let You help me solve it.

And Jesus says, Well, don't you see the gift in that? For I am strengthening you, that you will be able to do the work that I have called you to, that you will not give in to your easy little ways of thinking, everything is easy — to follow Me is to learn more and more and more, My ways. My ways are to help you to be more perfected, to be more likened to Me, that one day you will be with Me in heaven, in such a deep union, being one with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

    Oh sweet one, your vision is so impaired, and yet in the Blue Books, I have given to you, a more perfected vision, that when you are struggling you can open the book, and read even a sentence, and it helps your vision become more clear. To those who read My letters of love, those that are struggling, they see through My eyes, not through their tainted vision, to help them on their journey, to help them to be strengthened, to help them find their way.

     And the Priestly Newsletter that you have sent, over 5 million, in 14 years, has given to the hierarchy and the priests, more the vision of the Father, the voice of the Good Shepherd, the wisdom of the saints, through the popes writings, through the scripture, and the pronowned theologians. In a world that is tainted, and filled with so many untruths, you sent to the hierarchy and to the priests, a document rooted in the truth, filled with the vision of the Father, to help strengthen them, along with your prayer support, that they will know, that you are praying for them, that you are supporting them, that you are loving them, and that you have given your lives for them.

2. Jesus: And to those who have helped the Shepherds of Christ, they have been abundantly blessed by My hand, that they have been taken deeper and deeper, into My Heart and My Mother's heart, as I promised Fr. Carter 14 years ago. But their families have been blessed, and the blessings of the promises that I gave to St. Margaret Mary, that I would help them in their state of life, I would bless them and write their names on My Heart.

    I am Jesus, the Sacred Heart. I am giving to you, My Movement. You will be blessed, when you help Me circulate the Priestly Newsletter, and pray for the priests. Your parishes will be blessed as you pray the Litanies, and consecrate them to My Sacred Heart, and the heart of My Mother. Where My Heart is venerated, there will be peace, for I will come to that place, and as long as you continue to pray, there will be peace, and I will be the King and Center of that place, when you pray to Me, as such.

3. Jesus: The message that Mary gave at Fatima has not been followed. Mary appears here as Our Lady of Fatima in the Americas, and I have continued the work, of Our Lady of Fatima in My mission in the Shepherds of Christ.

4. Jesus: To you who have supported My Movement, I have outpoured My richest blessings, even though, you may have been asked to struggle, the struggle was one, to lead you to greater peace and holiness, to live a more perfected life. When you are suffering, and you are trying to live a holy life, you must realize that I am helping you to grow ever holier.

5. Jesus: And the world will tell you that, "Oh, a pain! Get rid of it! Oh, indulge! Have yourself some fun." And I speak to you — meditate on My life and the life of My Mother.

For the Father speaks to you and He says, "This is My beloved Son in whom I am well pleased, Listen to Him."

Jesus: Listen to Me, My precious one, I am with you at every moment. I never, ever leave your side. Do not fear, for you will know that when you turn to Me, that I am with you. I love you. I love you. I love you.

6. Jesus: And so you say, "But Jesus, I have to worry right now." And I say, "Take all your worries to prayer, continually doing the things that you feel that you must do, but come to Me, and know that I will strengthen you, and I will help you in your struggles. I will make you stronger than you ever were before, empower you in helping to build My Kingdom. I will bless those who help Me in My Movement, abundantly, and their families and their churches, for praying the prayers. Spread the consecration to My Sacred Heart, and to the heart of My Mother, and watch more and more, My peace fall upon those there.

7. Jesus: And there was a little, weak shoot, that started to grow and the winds came, and it blew and it blew and it blew, and somehow, the little shoot was able to survive. And as it grew to be stronger and stronger and stronger, it grew into a big tree. And when the winds came, and it blew and it blew, the birds of the air would come to take cover, because they knew, they would be safe there. You must see yourself as this little shoot, growing more and more, to be strengthened, by My wisdom and My light — that I am nurturing you, and outpouring My grace, as you go to the Bread of Life, as you read the scriptures, as you try to live a holy life of love, according to the Father's will, as you pray to the Holy Spirit, as you forgive one another, and work through difficulties, not being like the world that says, "You did this, you're done."

    You must help one another, for you are imperfect. You act imperfectly, To the one that goes to church and feels they are so saturated with My grace, and yet when the other, does not act very nice, it is not the thing to say, "Oh they did this to me, so I will not be nice back." It is the time to say, "They did this and they are hurting. God help me to act in the ways of love, to spread Your light, especially to the people that are the closest to me, to the ones that He has asked us to live with, to always hold tight, and know that love is the answer."

8. R. I never counted the word "of love" in one Blue Book, but to talk of God is to talk "of love." And if the hearts are not open, because they're closed, because of lack of forgiveness, because of old wounds, because they become more and more, hearts of stone — they become more and more angry, because God created us to love. And to not live to love, is to live a life in which we are miserable. Our goal is to love God, in this, we will have happiness.

9. R. And He ascended into heaven, and His Apostles looked from the field below, and a cloud took Him out of sight, for they had seen their beloved Jesus, and how strong He was. For they had, not really supported Him at the Crucifixion, except for John. They were afraid, because now Jesus was leaving, and here they were. But He told them to wait for the coming of the Holy Spirit, and their fear would be transformed to fearlessness.

    The more we pray to the Holy Spirit, the more we recognize the truth that God teaches us in these mysteries, the Glorious mysteries — the more we will be victorious in living a life in helping to promote His Kingdom, here below. The Apostles looked into the sky, and watched Jesus, and a cloud took Him out of sight. He is never out of sight for us. He remains with us in His Divinity and humanity, feeding us with His Body and Blood, showering us with His abundant grace, filling us more and more with His life, so that, we say, "It is no longer I who live, but He who lives in me."

    But to those who give in to the hardened heart, whose hearts are clogged, like the clogged vessels of somebody's heart that is having heart problems, years of unforgiveness, years of proving that you are right instead of loving, years of not working through difficulty with people that we must work with, in order to do the will of the Father. Bend the stubborn heart and will, melt the frozen, warm the chill, guide the steps that go astray — living according to the Father's will, always following the authority of the Church in love, for the Church is our authority.

10. And Jesus tells us to "Go! Go! Go!"

  
       

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

R. And they were in the upper room, and they were afraid. And there appeared over their heads tongues of fire, they were transformed from fear to fearlessness.

Song: Come Holy Spirit, fill our hearts

1. Song: Come Holy Ghost

2. Jesus: And so I come to you this day, and I ask you to be empowered, and not to be afraid, to pray to the Holy Spirit, that you will know the truth, that the truth will be in you, to follow the Church, to discern all that you do.

R. In St. Ignatius Spiritual Exercises, there are three different ways, in which we receive information, one is from the Holy Spirit, another from the evil spirit and a third our own thoughts. That which is given to us from the Holy Spirit, leaves us in peace. We know that God is with us, whereas from the evil spirit, is noisy, abrupt, like water dropping on a stone. And when we are in desolation, don't act. We pray for that time in which His favors are given to us, and that we will operate as He desires. When we are being pressed down in desolation, with darkness, we are to analyze what is happening there. Have we not prayed enough? Is God testing us? We can not just go willy-nilly, and do whatever kind of prompting that we have. The Church is our authority, and the Church keeps us in the truth.

    The third way in which information is given, is in our thoughts, which may be the Father's will or may not be the Father's will. But satan is the father of lies. And God teaches us in chapter 3 of Genesis, that his way is deception, that his way is fallacious reasoning, that his way is to begin, as appearing, as an angel of light, into leading a soul more and more, in his realm of fallacious reasoning, into darkness. We are at battle. God is giving us all that we need, to walk in the way of truth, as the Church has taught us. It is in following the Church, the Commandments, the Word of God, that we will know what the truth is.

3. R. And so the mission that we have received, in after 14 years, I finally got to put out the Mary Newsletter, which to me was an effort, that I had tried for 14 years, from the beginning. When Fr. Carter received a message, from Jesus in Tell My People, that talked about the marvelous wonder, that the Holy Spirit works within the heart of Mary, helping to bring us forth, more and more, in the image and likeness of Jesus, bringing us forth, more and more, a child of light — as Mary appeared here, over 11 years ago, in rainbow color, on the building, and remained for 7 1/2 years — the mission I saw was this — of leading her children to her Immaculate Heart, where there, she would mother them, and teach them of greater purity.

    And the Holy Spirit would perform His marvelous wonder, bringing them forth, more and more, as children of the light. I see the apparition here, as one in which God the Father allowed Mary to come, to lead her children to her Immaculate Heart, that the Holy Spirit, coming to them, outpouring His grace, would bring them forth in the truth, more and more, children of light. In a world that is consumed with darkness, the light of Christ, the wisdom of the Holy Spirit alive in them, would shine out, and help the people that were going astray.

    The mission that Mary gave to Fr. Carter, which was, to help to bring about the Reign of the Sacred Heart, and the Triumph of Mary's heart is a mission of hope. It is not a mission of sadness. It is a mission of looking upward, and not downward, to what the devil is doing — but looking upward, it's a mission about the truth of God — that He is Almighty, Omnipotent, All Powerful — and that all things are possible through Him. God sent Mary, here as a messenger, to tell us, as Mary said at Fatima, that to give our hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, will help to bring peace and light to the world, light in the far corners, where darkness presses in.

    And in sending the newsletter for over 14 years, 5,800,000 to the hierarchy and the priests, we have spread this devotion, to the Sacred Heart, the Immaculate Heart, the love of the Eucharist, the love of the Priesthood, the words of the Good Shepherd - through the voice of the popes and the wisdom of the saints. We have sent to strengthen our priest, with our love and our prayer support, as we gave great devotion to Mary through the Litany, and Jesus through the Litany of His Sacred Heart.

4. R. It was very interesting how the Blue Books were set up, because the first Blue Book that I got in 1993, was set up to tell me about the love of God, that God's love is personal, and how much He wants this personal love union with us.

    It went into the second Blue Book, to teach us of the fire of God's love, more and more, the surrendering of oneself, to the will of God, growing in greater faith and trust, knowing that our strengthen lies in Him —

    To the third Blue Book, which was to tell us, to love God and to love each other, bringing in the other and telling us not to size each other up, and to have this imperfect vision where we're sizing somebody up and preconceived ideas, but to look through the vision of God with eyes that are pure like Mary and Jesus —

    To the fourth Blue Book, in which He brought up Fatima, and Mary began appearing daily, the relationship with the Two Hearts, the suffering of the love of Jesus for us and for Mary, and Mary for Jesus and for us, seeing the interaction of that love between the Two Hearts, and knowing, that as Jesus loved Mary, He loves us so very much —

    To the fifth Blue Book, into living that Spousal union with God, the fifth Blue Book is filled with such pure love for us, of loving each other. If you read the first 10 pages, you will have to sit down and act different. Either that or throw the Blue Book away, because in those words, are the words of loving, selflessly, as God intends us to, in forgiving one another, and in loving Him with our whole hearts. There is such a purity in the fifth Blue Book, to prepare us more and more, to be the spouse of Christ, which is why there is a Ring on the front —

    Going into the sixth Blue Book - when I received the vision that's on the front, of the Eucharist, on a church that looked like China, years before we had China — and Fr. Carter's hand on the church or whatever priest writing the newsletter, when we had only circulated a few Priestly Newsletters, and now today we have circulated — well with today, it will be at least 6,000,000 Priestly Newsletters, that we have circulated in 14 years, to the priest and the hierarchy, by the grace of God. In the sixth Blue Book, Mary and Jesus appeared to me every day, and the rosaries were received, The Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

    What a gift God has given to us, in this building, that the Mother of God has appeared, to help to bring to completion, the mission that she began at Fatima, that dioceses would be consecrated, more and more, to the Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart, that we would thirst after and love, more and more, the Eucharist. This is a mission of hope, of spreading 200,000 rosaries - homemade, and consecration cards to grade school kids in the United States every year, for 10 years. It's a lot of years.

    God has helped us spread the consecration to the Tiny Tots, to the people in Nursing Homes, to the families, to the priests, and the Church and the world. This is the vision of God the Father, who sent His Son to Fr. Carter, to begin the Shepherds of Christ Movement, over 14 years ago, and it has been accelerating, at a rapid rate, ever since — 6,000,000 Priestly Newsletters. This is ————

5. Song: Come Holy Ghost

6. Holy Spirit Prayer. Come, Holy Spirit, almighty Sanctifier, God of love, who filled the Virgin Mary with grace, who wonderfully changed the hearts of the apostles, who endowed all Your martyrs with miraculous courage, come and sanctify us.

10. R. Dear Holy Spirit, please fill us with Your wisdom, and Your grace and Your light. Help us to be instruments of truth in this world, that we will always know the truth, that we will act in the truth, that we will not give to others, bad examples, because of our own selfishness. Help us to know the light, and to live according to the Father's will, in truth and in love.

  

The Assumption of Our Lady into Heaven

1. Song: Immaculate Mary

2. Hail Mary

3. R. And so we need to focus on the purity of the heart of Mary, to realize that, Mary is the sinless Virgin, that Mary didn't have a wounded human nature, and tendencies toward jealousy, and anger, and envy, and lustfulness, like we do. But we, the poor banished children of Adam and Eve, have these tendencies. But Mary and Jesus are the pure Hearts of gentle love, the sinless Hearts.

    And Jesus as the Sacred Heart points to His Heart — in this world today, in which so many hearts have turned to stone. And He says "Do you see My Heart? Do you know that the life of your body depends on your heart? Do you know what happens when your heart gets clogged up? Do you know that your heart needs to beat?

    And yet we can be so blinded, that we do not put the connection together, between the Sacred Heart of Jesus and our own heart, as we watch our hearts get clogged, and clogged and clogged, and yet we do not compare it, to the years and years and years and years, of unforgiveness and anger — the old wounds that we just won't let go of, like trophies that keep us stuck from loving. And so we pray to the Holy Spirit, and we go to the Immaculate Heart of our Mother, and we ask her, and we ask the Holy Spirit, to work in the purity of Mary's heart, to help bring us forth, more and more, children of the light, not children of the darkness, Mary's Immaculate Heart, our spiritual womb.

    We can see how we were born in our mother's womb, and she gave to us life. We go to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, her spiritual womb and the Holy Spirit fills us, more and more, with His life, that we will be children of the light, that we will be saturated, more and more, with His grace, which is His life in us. Oh God, help people to recognize the message that You have given. Help me to speak, that they will hear, that they will know that Mary appeared on this building, to deliver this message — the message of the importance, to the world, as a little city of light, that as we go to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and the Sacred Heart of Jesus, there will be greater peace and light all over the world.

    God is love and God is light, and God is — God gives us His Word, the Commandments, the Catholic Church. We're not rewriting the truth about God. We are, seeking to know more, about God, that we can be more one in Him. We are not writing the script. The script is written. The happiness etched on our soul, will be that in which, our goal is heaven and God. This is the plan of the Father. Man was created, His goal is to be for God in heaven. When people have made other things their gods, they become miserable. When people get more and more, hardened in heart, by anger, by seeing themselves as a god, they are going against the reason they were created, which is to love God first and to love their neighbor as themselves.

    And hearts can be like stone — chip away at the stone — how many times in the scripture, is it loaded with the hardened hearts? God is giving to us the Blue Books, to teach us about His soft and supple, burning Heart of love. God wants us to obey. It follows the rules. If we are to follow Him, we obey the rules. We are not willful. Adam and Eve were willful, they did their own will, and we suffered this wounded human nature, because of the sin of Adam and Eve. We don't write a new script. Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. We live His Word. We follow the Magesterum of the Church.

    If an individual is not living according to the truth, they are veering from it, the Church itself is solid. It teaches us of truth. In seeking truth, it is to seek, more and more, the gifts that God has given, through the stability of the Church. Living by the Word and the Commandments. Mary obeyed the will of the Father. You don't hear Mary screaming, as she's going into Egypt, "Joseph, how could God the Father, do this to me?" Mary said "yes". And Simeon prophesied and said, "A sword too will pierce your heart oh Mary." Mary said "yes." Mary teaches us to say "yes", "Yes" to God'." Let your "yes" be "yes" and your "no" mean "no".

    And in so many of the movies, the confusion is there — things that are false are shown as true and visa-versa. Many things that are evil are shown as being okay. They make right, wrong and wrong, right in the movies. And then the kids get all confused in their heads. In giving our hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, and spreading it through the diocese, through the children in the schools, through the families, we are rooted in the Two Hearts, of perfect obedience, in compliance to the will of God - the Hearts of greatest love. There is unity in dwelling in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

    School kids that consecrate their hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary are more unified in the classroom. Think of 50 different kids with 50 different wills. The structure of this Movement, is the structure given to us from God. Help us by praying as God has intended. You don't rewrite it. You just do what He has asked, spreading the consecration, doing what the Church is telling us to do, meditating on the mysteries of the rosary, living a deeper life of consecration, going to the Eucharist, and doing our hour, because we get saturated, more and more, with His precious grace, His life — going to confession, trying to be good and say we're sorry — working with each other, even when somebody is difficult.

    If God has given to us a tremendous grace, and we can see, that we need to love and help someone in our family, rather than meeting them like I got bullhorns on. This might be the very thing that may help them to turn someday. The old, "eye for an eye", "a tooth for a tooth", is not how we are to live. It's forgiveness and love, and working with each other, looking at ourselves, going to confession. What is a Shepherds of Christ Movement about — it's about the pure and holy Hearts of Jesus and Mary. It's about putting ourselves in the pure and holy Hearts of Jesus and Mary, the New Adam and the New Eve. It's about being fed and bred, at the Eucharist — the Body and Blood of Jesus.

    And He took them up the mountain, and a voice from heaven said, "This is my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased." And He gives to us His Body and Blood, that we can be transformed, more and more, in our souls, to greater and greater light. If we ever saw our own graced soul, we would fall on our face. But we see ourselves with imperfect vision. We do not even know ourselves, how tremendous we are, in the eyes of God, that He created us and made us, and that He's with us.

     And that's what the Blue Book does for somebody — they pick it up, they open it up, and they see with the vision of God, where they're starting to not understand because of the confusion of the world, because of their own tainted vision — they open up the Blue Book, and they see with the vision of God. And it puts us back in line, seeing that He has all the Power, seeing that He is with us, knowing that we must trust in Him, reading the Word and living by it. Some people just seeking dominance, will analyze the Word, and try to tell the stuff, that's not really right. We have a wounded human nature. There is, in us, that tendency for seeking dominance for dominance sake.

    And we have to pray for grace to keep that in check, that we're more like Mary, humble, that we are always obedient to God, we are living according to God's will, that our whole life is lived to help build the Kingdom of God. Mary was assumed into heaven, body and soul. Jesus ascended into heaven. The Two glorified bodies in heaven. Our mission from this building, is to do the mission that God has given to us, which is to spread the devotion to the Two Hearts, majorly through the Priestly Newsletter, as we send it to these hierarchy, every other month.

4. Mary: I am Mary your Mother and I have appeared to you, at this building, to ask you to help to bring to completion the mission I began at Fatima, in spreading the devotion to my Immaculate Heart, and the devotion to my Son's Sacred Heart. I am the Queen of Peace. In this lies your peace, not with guns and powder and hatred, trying to be right, just for the sake of being right. It is in love — for God commands you, my children, to love Him, with your whole heart, your whole soul and your whole being, and to love one another as yourselves — to work with each other, for His holy purpose.

Our Lady is Crowned Queen of Heaven and Earth

1. Hail Mary

2. Revelation 12: 1
 
       
Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman, robed with the sun, standing on the moon, and on her head a crown of twelve stars.

Jesus: And I call to you, My beloved ones, to know, that I have given to you, the stars in the sky, and the moon and the sun. I have given to you the baby at the breast, with all the little intricacies of the fingers and the toes. I have given to you your green grass, and have given to you the winter cold nights, in which a blanket of snow covers your land. And yet, you become pompous in your ways, you forget about the Creator so many times. You want to do your own things, and become so detailed in the expression, so you worry and worry and worry incisively, stepping on each others toes, when you should be working in love, for a common solution.

    I have given to you, Mary your Mother, appearing on this building, robed in the robe of the rainbow, that you will remember the covenant that I made with you, My sinful men, that I would never flood the earth as I once did, at the time of Noah. But it was for the good, for you needed to be purified. There was so much contamination in the human race. Always renewing My people, always sending that, which will help them, grow more and more, in My ways. Coming Myself, the Son of God, in a little stable in poverty, for love of you. Dying on the cross, for love of you. Carrying your sins and deception, bleeding in the garden, knowing that despite My sufferings, so many of My precious souls, would be lost forever.

    Why did Mary appear here — to tell you of her children, that are being lost today, to ask you to pray, to cry out to you, about the terror of one lost soul, for all eternity. To you that have been richly blessed, and I have outpoured My grace — you are to love more, to forgive more, to make peace more. You do not want to be like the world, where you say, "You did this to me, so therefore, I am not going to be nice to you."

R. Is that the way that God has taught us to be? When we look at Jesus hanging on the cross, when we see the crown of thorns on His head, when we see the blood gushing out, when we see it matted in His hair, and the lacerations all over His body — can we really envision how He was, hanging on the cross? He was laid bare. He was laid bare for my sins and your sins. And yet we write ourselves a little story — we say, "Well, this is the way it's going to be, and it's God's will, because I believe it." That's not how it is. We've got to get before the face of God, receive Him in the Blessed Sacrament, go to penance, ask God to help us to forgive and work with each other.

    When it is so hard, you may almost feel like you are bleeding, because somebody doesn't understand, and yet you know that it's God's will, that they do something, and doing those things, that you know is God's will, because you want to please God. Every problem that ever existed in this Movement, since 1993, I have been a part of — and when Fr. Carter died in 2000, which was over 7 years ago — I've run it longer than him — I've dealt with every issue. He made me deal with the issues while, He was still here, I thought, "Why doesn't he do it himself?" He said, "Under obedience, Rita, you do it." I thought, "It would be just as easy for you to go tell that person that" — Because of the purity of the Movement, I have entrusted to you, this work that you must do.

    And when he told John and me that he was going to die, and we were going to be left with the Movement, John and I stuck our fingers in our ears and said "Our Lady of Clearwater will heal him." No, Our Lady of Clearwater, never healed him. And when Mary appeared to me every day at the Holy Spirit Center, from July the 5th, 1994 until September the 5th 1995, people didn't believe. Thank God, Fr. Carter went for the first 4 months, and he stood behind me all the way. Back then nothing was happening, now 6,000,000 Priestly Newsletters have circulated all over the world to the hierarchy and the priests, in 14 years.

    Billions of rosaries to school kids, and consecration cards, and then they say to me, "Well nobody believes that Mary is really appearing to you. Are you going to keep going in there?" I say, "I don't care what they believe, I'm doing what Our Lady is telling me." Fr. Carter believed - Fr. Carter went to the last day of his death, trying to help me to be able to continue this mission - God had given to him as founder, and me as co-founder. But it is rooted in truth. It is rooted in discernment. It is rooted in the Priestly Newsletter. It has been a vital "instrument" as we pray for in the prayers, the "instrument" Jesus has chosen — the instrument Jesus has chosen.

    And I learned about the body of Christ. What is it about the body of Christ, that I know is our mission — to help greater oneness in the world, to realize that in families, there's the toe, the head, the finger, and they all got to work together. You don't cut the big toe off and say "You're out." We keep on striving to do God's will in the truth, obeying the rules of the Church, the commandments, the Word, respecting each other, giving our lives for this mission. Look at any of us here, we're not down here because we're wearing the gold crown. We're down here because we have given our lives, all of us that are here, for 12 years, at least. That takes love, that takes sacrifice.

    Love is not the "gooshy" love that the world talks about today, the "kissy-wissy", whatever they want. Love is recognizing a fault and doing God's will trying to correct it in ourselves. Love is saying I want to change, even though I've had this habit for 50 years, I want to change. Because I want to be one, working together, because none of us can accomplish it by ourselves. What is the mission of the Shepherds of Christ, to help strengthen the body of Christ, with greater oneness, to help strengthen the family with greater oneness, by spreading the consecration and going to our most tremendous Church, receiving the Eucharist.

    The awesomeness of it all, is too much for words. But it is etched in all of our souls, thus, the commitment, the believing in the Priestly Newsletter, the believing in the prayers, in the Prayer Manual, daily Mass — daily adoration — daily rosary — consecration, the Morning Offering, etc. We pray the prayers in the prayer manual every day ourselves. The blessings that we have received from this, going to daily Mass and doing an hour before the Blessed Sacrament — the people that have sat here day after day after day, for 9 years, saying the 6:20 prayers, in the cold, in the heat, and no matter what, because Our Lady appeared on this building, and we never forget it. The 24 hours adoration before the Blessed Sacrament in China, Indiana praying for the priests, the Church and the world. We never forget about the image here. The whole world can forget it, but there are people here, that have given and given and given, because Jesus wants us to be here because Jesus wants us to be here in this building. This is a city of light and a place of prayer for the world.

    And so many people have been healed, from praying the prayers before the Fatima statue and the little piece of glass, their families brought back to the Church, through the prayers in the prayer manual, and physical healings, spiritual healings, "Jesus and Mary Water"- healing from cancers, they reported. God has blessed all of us, with His Movement. And I remember Fr. Carter saying in 1998, he went to Morrow, and he left crying, and he said "Now its payback time." To all of you, and there should be about 200 people that are out there listening to me on the internet radio, at least, heed the words that I have spoken here. For it is a call from Jesus to not give in, to weaknesses. To take your vocation seriously. 

    Jesus wants us having this building in Clearwater, Florida. Jesus wants us getting that support, if it's $5 a month from everybody, in the prayer chapters, or who want to help with this beautiful Priestly Newsletter, to put the Priestly Newsletter out there. He magnifies the work that we do. He blesses our families. He draws us closer to His Heart. He gives us hope. This is a Movement of hope. This is not the kind, where people say, "Okay, now you go out there, and you prepare this, this and this and this, and then you worry about the darkness, and you look at this and you do that. This is focusing on, the Power of the Almighty God, the message of Our Lady of Fatima, the great gift of the Church, the gift to the priests, to give our lives praying for them.

    This is focused on praying for the world, because Mary is crying out from this place, how awful it is that one soul would be lost to the fires of hell. And she says, "I stood beneath the cross of my Son and I cried for the little ones, that would be lost forever." You do not even know how seeing the Mother of God appear as much as I have seen her, and hearing her message is etched in my every cell. What are the benefits of delivering this message? It is for the salvation of my own soul. And to help the other souls because Our Lady has asked me as a messenger to do so.

Song: Ave Maria gratia plena

R. We love you Mary.

Song: Ave Maria gratia plena

R. Hear us God. Sing! Sing to Mary. Ask for help with this Priestly Newsletter, and the grace for all of the hierarchy. God help us with the postage and everything, please. Please for the grace, help us all involved, God, even the postage people. Sing! We send it to spread the consecration to the dioceses as Mary asked for at Fatima, help us God. Help us Our Lady of Fatima in the Americas, from this building, help us.

Song: Ave Maria gratia plena

9. Jesus: And so I speak to you — and your lives come in death and resurrection. As you go through the remaining days of Lent, accept the sufferings that you are permitted to share, that you will be made more free, that you will let go of the inordinate attachments. Let go of the things that you have made little gods in your hearts, that are driving you from Me. Read the Blue Books, say the Shepherds of Christ prayers, pray for the Priestly Newsletter. In this prayer service, I ask you to please pray for the Priestly Newsletter.

R. Yes, God. I give You my soul God, every ounce, every cell, my life.

Sing: Touch somebody's life with your life  Sing!

R. So tomorrow we are going to send a lot of Priestly Newsletters out too, we need your prayers. Pray - and think of these words.

Sing: Christ has no Body now but Yours

R. It was like in 1994, Our Lord told me to make this tape. It's the best tape. It was really for college students and it was called, "Choose Life."

Sing: Choose Life

R. And there's one that Our Lord wants me to say — When it's not good for us to do something, or to be connected with another person, because they're not good for our soul — we don't have bitterness towards them. We pray for them. We pray that God's will is done by them, and we stay firm in what we know God wants us to do. He tells me this — You don't go grab a snake - do you Rita? No. Don't go grab a snake. But that's different, than being loving to the people, that we're suppose to live with, and help to get to heaven — thinking that we're better than somebody else. Well, He put us there, maybe He gave us a lot of grace, because He knew we would be the ones to help them get to heaven, and then all we think about is ourselves, when they needed, what they needed, from Christ as we act as He desires.

Song: We Will Rise Again

R. Mary said yes. Mary teaches us about saying yes to Jesus. Mary teaches us about obedience. Mary is our spiritual Mother. Mary is teaching her children in this building. She appeared to teach us about the love of her Son.

Sing: Call us to hear the Voices of Challenges

10. R. So let's think about some of these things during Lent. Think about the woman at the well, and how through our Church, that God outpours His grace, through His pierced Heart the Church was born. Think about how God is calling us to make a change in this Lent, not a change for others, but a change for ourselves, that we were once in darkness. But the more that we give ourselves to God, the more that we walk as the children of light, the more that we live as children of light, the more we give ourselves, by obeying the commandments, going to the Church, obeying the Church, living in love, forgiving each other, then we are not like the blind man. The blind man that — he was blind from birth, but then he could see — he was blind from birth, but then he could see. That's what God wants to do with us, this Lent. We see Jesus put clay in the blind man's eyes, then he could see.

    God has asked us to send the Voice of the Good Shepherd, around the world now for 15 years — if it's been through Fr. Carter, through the priest we have now, or another priest that we had, we have had overwhelming response from the hierarchy, thanking us for our prayers, and our lives given, and the support from the Priestly Newsletter, and saying that they like our spreading the devotion to the Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart, and our love for the Eucharist, and it's just been a real gift to get all those letters. The more that we can see our mission here, the more that we will be like affecting the world, which is what God calls us though Baptism, to help promote His Kingdom, not for our honor and glory, but for the honor and glory of God.

And Jesus says That's the mission of the Shepherds of Christ, that's how every Priestly Newsletter is started, you have over 6,000,000 of them now.

Song: Valleys of Green

  

Hail Holy Queen

R. It was March the 5th of 1998, 10 years ago, and I had been down here since the end of February, and Fr. Carter came down here too, and there was some things that needed to be straightened out, and I did a rosary. We didn't have the building yet, until July, so in July we will have the building 10 years, but we did a rosary at this house, where we had for our center then, and so I've been doing the 5ths down here in Florida, for over 10 years, monthly.

    And the first one in the building, was July 5th, of 1998, which is just a few months away, but the real 5ths started, July 5th of 1994 when Our Lady first appeared to me, and when she appeared to me, I was at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center, and she appeared surrounded by light as from a fire, it just was like something I couldn't even express. And as I left I could hardly walk, my two children were with me. About 5 days later, Fr. Carter showed up, and he said that Our Lord told him to be there every night, and then people started to come.

    Mary continued to appear to me for 2 1/2 years on the 5ths, every month, until December 5th, of 1996, and Jesus appeared at the point of death on the cross, a full body of a man, and I could hardly take it. It was over at Holy Cross-Immaculata, that's where They were appearing to me then. I just sat there like in horror, just crying, looking at Him, but His mouth was moving, and His mouth kept moving up and down, and up and down. And that night I did the 5th rosary, and it was at my house, and there was, I don't know, there could have been 80 people that were there. And Jesus said that the reason He appeared, with His mouth moving at the point of death, was because nobody was listening.

    So this was December the 5th, of 1996, and then on December the 17th, of 1996, the Red Rosary Book which had rosaries from these apparitions, that were transcribed from a tape, as I delivered them here tonight — left the printers, and it had a rainbow on it, like Our Lord had told me to, and that was the same day, that the book left the printer, the Red Rosary Book, Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, that Mary appeared on the building here in Clearwater in rainbow color.

    I guess that was the end of the daily visits for me, and then Mary appeared here, and she appeared here for 7 1/2 years, and then her head was knocked off. And I still have apparitions of Our Lady, but there was a lot of apparitions on the 5ths, when I would come down here. On December 17th, of 2007, I was in this room, because that's what Our Lord told me to do, and it was the anniversary  — and that's when Mary began to appear to me again — and she appeared in all these different faces of different nations, and the light was magnificent — and she said that she was Our Lady of all the Nations, and it was just tremendous. At the same time on December 12, 2007, Our Lady began to appear to me in China, and when I was doing that prayer service, it was during a retreat, and she has continued to appear here, almost every prayer service that I have done. And what I say is transcribed, and it is put on the internet.

    Our Lord appears also, and He comes in the most magnificent light while I am getting the message, a lot of times. And you can't even describe it, I can just deliver the message, and then I'm just in awe, because He's so beautiful, or Mary's so beautiful. And yet the message is so clear to me, that He keeps giving to me. Today as we continue our mission, in spreading the Priestly Newsletter, we must really keep this in our prayers, to keep praying for those that receive it, how it gets there, the funds to keep doing this every other month.

    You know, because there are a few people here at the Virgin Mary building — this is not pleasing to Our Lord, I can tell you that — but that doesn't stop us. Our purpose here is in praying to help make reparation, one - on March 1, of 2004, 4 years ago, her head was knocked off, and also, to help make reparation for the sins of the human race — telling Him how much we want to serve Him, we want to do, in obedience, what God has called us to do in this mission, and that we've given our lives.

    Our primary function, in the Shepherds of Christ is the Priestly Newsletter, to guard it. Fr. Carter discerned everything that I put out, like 4 times, and then after he died, he saw that I had another priest. I have about 3 priests that I work with, that I can call at any time, and they help me, and a whole myriad of other priests, that answer if I ask them anything at all - even asking them to help us.

    When God sends a messenger, He sends a priest, so that, that priest will be the one that is with that person. It's real important as this Priestly Newsletter goes out — and if you're hearing my voice, to help me spread the Blue Books. There's about 90,000 Blue Books - 4 and 5, that Our Lord told me to print, and the more and more, I keep seeing how pure the vision is, for us, loving Jesus and each other and ourselves, and how tainted our own vision is, and how more and more, how the devil is pressing down, that just works in negativism and division. The devil is working all over this whole earth, for people to be disobedient to God's commandment, divided in families, thinking suspicion of their spouse so their marriage falls apart, wrecking families.

    We just can't say "no" to Our Lady, who really appeared here, and asked us to pray for the priests, the Church and the world — and then ourselves, the more that God gives me the messages, and the writings that He does, to stay focused on what He is saying about truth and love, and not give into that negative stuff. We only got a certain amount of time here, we just don't know, we could get in our car and die. We don't know how long we have.

    But we know this — that God has called us through Baptism to help build the Kingdom, and our biggest thing will come by living in holiness, according to the will of God, by going to Mass and doing our hour. If God has called you in the Shepherds of Christ to be a member, you should really pray those prayers, and count yourself blessed, because in praying them, you're taken deeper and deeper, into the Heart of Jesus and Mary into greater intimacy, with Them. The families that have prayed those prayers have been so blessed.

    I know those prayers have been around for 14 years, almost 14 years in 6 languages. I know why the people in Texas stay one, and the people in California stay one, even when I don't know them, they're one because they pray the prayers. God works in their hearts. But the mission God has given to me, is the only messenger, Fr. Carter was the other messenger, and there's not this confusion that's out there. I have dictated the exact mission of how this Movement circulates. It's nothing weird.

    It's helping to help us be better members of the body of Christ. It's helping us to love each other more deeply. It's helping to teach us to not to give into satan, to not fight with the people we got to work with, or we're suppose to love and work with each other. There is no other way. There is just no other way, but His way that works - and His way is love. And His way is difficult, because a lot of times, we just don't want to say that we are sorry. We don't want to admit that we're wrong.

    Men and women think different then each other. He allowed that to happen, and the chastisement because Adam and Eve sinned in the garden. We are to live in love, dealing with each other, and grow in greater perfection. Men have certain ways they act, and women have other ways they act, and they can really grow to be more like the Heart of Christ, if they live to love with their differences. God has one Plan. God created us.

    And when Adam and Eve sinned in the garden, we suffered, and we still suffer today, but God has given to us His Body and Blood to feed us, to help us. And in the Blue Books, He has told us how He wants this personal love union, how powerful the Eucharist is, Jesus is truly present in His Divinity and humanity. We need to go to the Eucharist and pray for the priests, the Church and the world, that the more that we become one in Him, the more powerful our prayers. And with every cell of my body, I can truly say this Movement is to help bring about the Reign of the Sacred Heart and the Triumph of Mary's Heart, as Mary said at Fatima, as Jesus told Fr. Carter.

    And it's not a mission of "oh you better be scared", it's  - God has given us the light, let's go to the Eucharist, let's pray with all of our hearts, let's show Him how obedient we are, because He will bless the world if we are good. We help make reparation, and we tell Him how much we love Him, and the more we grow close to Him, the more He will have mercy — not only for us and our families, but for the whole earth. He looks down here, and He wants us to be good. In closing, I would like to give the following message from Our Lady —

Mary: I am Our Lady of Fatima in the Americas, and I have called this retreat, from March the 1st until March the 5th. My Son Jesus asked you to help make reparation, for the atrocity that was committed, in destroying my image head, that you would help to make reparation for the sins of souls of this earth, that you would take, once again, this mission seriously, knowing that great gifts are given to those who come here, healing grace can be given when you pray on the internet radio united to those here, healing in families and hearts - some physical healing— that as you pray as a body united, for the priests, the Church and the world, and help to spread the Priestly Newsletter, you too, will be magnificently blessed, your families will be blessed. You have been called by Jesus, you must stay united.

    Do not listen to satan to tell you other things, that will lead you to the darkness. Focus on the light. Focus on the gifts of the Church. Focus on the mission, and how the cardinals have responded with their letters of support, for the Priestly Newsletters and the prayers, and be a part of it, because Jesus has called you, to do what He has asked you to do. It isn't in writing a new script, it's in doing what my Son Jesus asked Fr. Carter and my messenger, that has led to the formation of this Movement - and this building, a place of special prayer, a light to the people of the world, a light from God the Father.

    Here me, oh giant coastlands, and be not afraid, for your Father guards you night and day. My Son, Jesus gives to you Himself in the Eucharist, and gives to you His holy priests. You must cherish the gifts God has given to you, and be full of gratitude, not give into the pressure of satan, to lead you into remorse, anger, bitterness, whatever it is. Pray to my Spouse, the Holy Spirit. Come to my Immaculate Heart, and He will mold you, more and more, in the image of my Son. I am Mary your Mother, and I am with you this day.

R. The retreat in China will be on the 10th, the 11th, the 12th and the 13th. There's 4 Masses, one every day and the Eucharist is exposed. Please come if you can. Tune in on the internet radio. Thank You. In the Name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.

On Prayer Before the Tabernacle

Bishop Fulton Sheen, one of the most admired and influential speakers of this century, gives witness to the efficacy of praying before the Blessed Sacrament: “When I stand up to talk, people listen to me. They will follow what I have to say. St. Paul says: ‘What do you have that was not given to you? And if it was given, how can you boast as though it were not?’ (1 Cor 4:7). The secret of my power is that I have never in fifty-five years missed spending an hour in the presence of our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament. That’s where the power comes from. That’s where sermons are born. That’s where every good thought is conceived.”6
