March 31, 2006

Jesus speaks:            A man woke one day and he went
                            into the center of town — where once
                            he saw the sign Carol's Ice Cream Shop -
                            it said Mel's Hardware, the Barber
                            Shop was a grocery store — all the
                            once familiar shapes, awnings of the stores were
                            the same, but all the signs switched —
                            like the ice cream shop being the hardware
                            store.

                                The worse was yet to come for he went
                            into the bakery and in it was displayed
                            tools and oil and all kinds of hard goods
                            where once was sweet cookies and
                            delicious donuts - behind the counter
                            was a man selling auto parts - gruff
                            and sort of angry - looking like
                            he was very disillusioned with his
                            surroundings.

                                When the man said I came for some
                            sweet bread the other man behind the counter
                            began cursing and using foul talk and the
                            customer man was forced to flee —
                            feeling he had carried a load of garbage
                            on his back from the store and no donut.

                                Is your world like that? I give you
                            My precious mysteries about My life —
                            Church altars have been turned into
                            stages for rowdy movies and when you
                            enter what was once your place of
                            worship it may be some guy's desk
                            of an insurance company with a
                            computer where the tabernacle is.

                                A little child learning to put on their
                            clothes may look pretty hung up —
                            one little enough, might even put
                            their pants on for their shirt —
                            but try this — putting your pants on for
                            a shirt. Put your arms through the
                            leg holes.

                                You say, well Jesus, that is so silly —
                            it would feel awful and wouldn't serve
                            any purpose — maybe keep my arms warm,
                            but would look bizarre and my body
                            would be uncovered while the material
                            hung in the air. Oh Jesus, that is so
                            silly indeed.

                                People who once knew and lived by
                            My commandments have put aside even
                            praying - they live every day without
                            God. Do you think it is so silly —
                            like you wearing trousers for a shirt.

                                They have put their days on the
                            wrong way. They have, many of them,
                            abandoned their faith.

                                Many have turned the bakery into
                            an auto repair parts store and they
                            are really angry inside — not selling
                            sweet breads, but their hearts feel
                            empty and mean as they search for
                            something to fill them and they are left
                            empty.

                                Some have the disease Alzheimer's
                            where once they remembered everything
                            they needed — they cannot remember —
                            no matter how hard they try. It is so
                            frustrating for one who had such a
                            keen mind.

                                How can it be you were once
                            going to Church, praying the rosary
                            and then it started: abandoning your
                            faith for sex, and thinking that the
                            commandments are old fashioned —
                            many have gone beyond kissing on the
                            first date and casual sex is the way of
                            many people — (they think) my faith is
                            out of date — (they think) the commandments are
                            old — (they think) I don't need them — and so you
                            abandoned your faith for the sin of
                            the world and now you think like the
                            world, but are you really empty inside?

                                Did you ever look at an old friend —
                            one you knew well and looked
                            with love and they act like they
                            do not know you — you look
                            into their face trying to get
                            a connection and they seem to look
                            back at you, as if they don't
                            know you.

                                You look at Me like this, many
                            who have lost their way — you
                            have closed your hearts to Me —

                                I cried in the garden for those I
                            loved so deeply and would ignore
                            Me and reject Me.

                                Many have hard-jawed-faces
                            their eyes are hollow — they feast
                            on the pleasures of the world day
                            long and they ignore Me and I gave
                            My life for them.

                                When someone gets older you
                            think they may return to Me, but
                            the person may make their way
                            feeling that this world will never
                            end.

 

                    Today's First Reading

Wisdom 2:1, 12-22

And this is the false argument they use, 
‘Our life is short and dreary, 
there is no remedy when our end comes, 
no one is known to have come back from Hades.

Let us lay traps for the upright man, since he annoys us 
and opposes our way of life, 
reproaches us for our sins against the Law, 
and accuses us of sins against our upbringing. 
He claims to have knowledge of God, 
and calls himself a child of the Lord. 
We see him as a reproof to our way of thinking, 
the very sight of him weighs our spirits down; 
for his kind of life is not like other people’s, 
and his ways are quite different. 
In his opinion we are counterfeit; 
he avoids our ways as he would filth; 
he proclaims the final end of the upright as blessed 
and boasts of having God for his father. 
Let us see if what he says is true, 
and test him to see what sort of end he will have. 
For if the upright man is God’s son, God will help him 
and rescue him from the clutches of his enemies. 
Let us test him with cruelty and with torture, 
and thus explore this gentleness of his 
and put his patience to the test. 
Let us condemn him to a shameful death 
since God will rescue him—or so he claims.’

This is the way they reason, but they are misled, 
since their malice makes them blind. 
They do not know the hidden things of God, 
they do not hope for the reward of holiness, 
they do not believe in a reward for blameless souls.

                    Today's Gospel

John 7: 1-2, 10, 25-30

After this Jesus travelled round Galilee; he could not travel round Judaea, because the Jews were seeking to kill him. 

    As the Jewish feast of Shelters drew near,

    However, after his brothers had left for the festival, he went up as well, not publicly but secretly.

The people discuss the origin of the Messiah

Meanwhile some of the people of Jerusalem were saying, ‘Isn’t this the man they want to kill? And here he is, speaking openly, and they have nothing to say to him! Can it be true the authorities have recognised that he is the Christ? Yet we all know where he comes from, but when the Christ appears no one will know where he comes from.’ 

    Then, as Jesus was teaching in the Temple, he cried out: 

    You know me 
        and you know where I came from. 
    Yet I have not come of my own accord: 
    but he who sent me is true; 
    You do not know him, 
    but I know him 
    because I have my being from him 
    and it was he who sent me. 

    They wanted to arrest him then, but because his hour had not yet come no one laid a hand on him.

Jesus speaks:             I gave Mary to you on the building

                                It was a sign to wake those
                            who were sleeping.

                                When many saw Mary, they
                            closed their eyes and would not
                            look. They did not want to
                            change.

                                Sending you such a sign for
                            the people was ignored.

During the Chaplet of Divine Mercy

(disc is available)

 

The Agony in the Garden

Matthew 26: 39

And going on a little further he fell on his face and prayed. ‘My Father,’ he said, ‘if it is possible, let this cup pass me by. Nevertheless, let it be as you, not I, would have it.’

 

Matthew 26: 36-46

Then Jesus came with them to a plot of land called Gethsemane; and he said to his disciples, ‘Stay here while I go over there to pray.’ He took Peter and the two sons of Zebedee with him. And he began to feel sadness and anguish.

    Then he said to them, ‘My soul is sorrowful to the point of death. Wait here and stay awake with me.’ And going on a little further he fell on his face and prayed. ‘My Father,’ he said, ‘if it is possible, let this cup pass me by. Nevertheless, let it be as you, not I, would have it.’ He came back to the disciples and found them sleeping, and he said to Peter, ‘So you had not the strength to stay awake with me for one hour? Stay awake, and pray not to be put to the test. The spirit is willing enough, but human nature is weak.’ Again, a second time, he went away and prayed: ‘My Father,’ he said, ‘if this cup cannot pass by, but I must drink it, your will be done!’ And he came back again and found them sleeping, their eyes were so heavy. Leaving them there, he went away again and prayed for the third time, repeating the same words. Then he came back to the disciples and said to them, ‘You can sleep on now and have your rest. Look, the hour has come when the Son of man is to be betrayed into the hands of sinners. Get up! Let us go! Look, my betrayer is not far away.’ 

     

 

Jesus speaks:  And I call to you My beloved priests to spend this hour with Me daily. I call to you to pray for this, that this message will be circulated throughout the land, to the priests,

 

  

Jesus speaks:  especially of the United States where My Mother appeared to tell them. But they did not listen and I go away and I come back and I say "Could you not wait one hour with Me?" Pray that you will not enter into the temptation. And again and again, and I come in My love letters and I say "Can you not wait one hour with Me?" and they say "Oh but I must do this and be about this business and that business and the other business." And I say to you "You are My beloved spouse, the one that I have called to be My priest, to offer the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, to give to the people My Body and My Blood. I give to you the power to forgive sins" and you say "Oh I do not have time today Jesus." And I say "Could you not wait one hour with Me?" 

    I ask you to circulate this message to My priests, "Can you not wait one hour with Me daily before the Blessed Sacrament?" And pray that you will not be held to the test. For the grace that I outpour to you in this hour is the grace that will help you to be the priest that is needed to help the young men to follow the vocation to be the priest in the churches in America. Do you not hear the words I speak to you this day? Can you not spend one hour with Me? I give to you 24 hours a day and you are busy for what?

 

Jesus is Scourging at the Pillar

Matthew 26: 48-49

Now the traitor had arranged a sign with them saying, ‘The one I kiss, he is the man. Arrest him.’ So he went up to Jesus at once and said, ‘Greetings, Rabbi,’ and kissed him.

  

Jesus speaks:  And they tied Me to the pillar and they tore My flesh and I bled for the sins of this world today. And I call to you My beloved priests to hear the words that I speak -- for the little ones will not have the availability of the Eucharist as many do today. And it is because of your lack of holiness and time alone with Me to do holy prayer. And I say to you "Can you not wait one hour with Me" that you will not be put to the test, that you will be the holy priest that will lead the people to My Heart. And they whipped Me and they tore My flesh and the blood ran down from My battered head for My little ones, the souls of the babies, the souls of millions of babies that can be affected by what you are doing in this Movement with the Newsletter and the Prayer Chapters. 

    God the Father has called this code orange that you will pray more ardently, that you will realize that this Movement will flourish through the prayers of the people united as associates and Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart. But if you are not committed, if you think it depends on you alone, the prayer power will not be there. You must pray for your priests, for they are blind and do not see the benefits of the daily hour before the Blessed Sacrament. And in that hour I give to them the grace to be holy priests, I give to them the grace to know the will of God and to live by it. And in that hour they will speak to the people of the gift of the Eucharist, of the gift of the Church - outpour their love to the people of the Church. Oh pray My little ones for it is so important that you pray here today.

Messenger:  And we pray, we pray Father and we beg for mercy and for grace because it is all in Your hands. It is in our hearts etched deep within our soul and we ask You to please hear our prayers for the shortage of the priests to come -- makes us so sad. Hear our prayer God, hear our prayer and help us. We know that our lives given will make a difference to the souls but it is only by Your might that this will happen.

    Dear Father in the name of Your Son Jesus, in the Holy Spirit, with all the angels and the saints and the souls in purgatory, through the intercession of Our Lady of Fatima in the Americas and Pope John Paul II and Bishop Ed and Fr. Carter, St. Ignatius, St. Xavier, Margaret, my mom and sister, and for all the favorite saints that you have, for St. Joseph and St. Anthony, Our Lady of Guadalupe and all Mary's titles, God we want You to help us, we are sinners have mercy on us, but hear our pleading prayers for we just cannot do it. We are totally dependent on You. Please Father for the sake of His sorrowful passion, hear our prayers.

 

Crowning with Thorns

Matthew 27: 28-29

And they stripped him and put a scarlet cloak round him, and having twisted some thorns into a crown they put this on his head and placed a reed in his right hand. To make fun of him they knelt to him saying, ‘Hail, king of the Jews!’

  

Jesus speaks:  And they pounded the thorns into My head and the blood ran down My head.

Messenger:  Oh God we meditate on Your wounds and Your love for souls. And we too love the souls so deeply, please hear our prayer for we believe in this Movement and the Newsletter and the Prayer Chapters and all the things that You have asked us to do with the rosary and the consecration. God it's all in Your hands. For the sake of the babies, dear Jesus, that You shed Your blood for. Help us to be able to do what You have asked us to do in this Movement, for we believe.

Sing:  Jesus we believe, Jesus we believe, Jesus we believe, 
            we believe in You.
          Father we believe, Father we believe, Father we believe, 
            we believe in You.
          Holy Spirit we believe, Holy Spirit we believe, Holy Spirit 
            we believe, we believe in You.
          Mary we believe, Mary we believe, Mary we believe, 
            we believe in you.

Messenger:  Little infant we love You so. The sight of You with Your little crown and Your little sweet cheeks as a King just makes our hearts so happy. Please help us, Jesus in the Eucharist truly present here, please hear our prayer.

 

Messenger:  The words of this message are etched so deeply in my soul that the words are just words, but I speak as Mary spoke through me.

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, 

(Messenger:  that's what she's talking about, lots of little children that are just not even going to have the benefits that we have with the Eucharist and availability of the Mass)

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.

end of Mary's Message, August 27, 1996

 

Mary speaks:  I looked into the eyes of my Son and I saw the blood and the anguish.

And Jesus says:  I looked into the eyes of My Mother and I could have stopped the suffering but I didn't, I did the Father's will. My little ones, carry your crosses and your tears bring to Me, tears for the souls of the little ones for I long for you to pray and to ask for the things that you need for it is by My might that they will be accomplished.

Messenger:  And we pray to you Father and we ask You, please in the name of Jesus for the sake of His sorrowful passion, hear our prayer, please God, please hear us for all the years that we have prayed, for all the apparitions, please God look at our faith and our love and our devotion, forgive us for our sins and failings but look into our hearts and see how much we too love the souls. How can this happen? Why won't anyone listen? Why does the crisis for the priest get worse and worse? Why won't they go to the tabernacle and spend the time? Why is the love not there to be there with God? Please hear us, we are the Shepherds of Christ. You have formed us and given us this Movement but we cannot change the hearts of the people, only God by Your might can their hearts be changed. Hear us, Father we lay prostrate before You and beg, we beg God hear us and help us, please.

  

Jesus carries His Cross

John 19: 16-17

So at that Pilate handed him over to them to be crucified.

They then took charge of Jesus, and carrying his own cross he went out to the Place of the Skull or, as it is called in Hebrew, Golgotha,

 

Messenger:  And we sing for the whole world. Sing this song. I have to find it.

    We sing this song, Father, we sing for the whole world, if we pray hard enough, if we love you deep enough, if we tell you we are sorry for our sins, if we give our lives to You, will you hear our prayers - for the little ones Jesus gave His life for, for the ones that Mary speaks of.

Song:  Change Our Hearts

Messenger:  I pray for every soul on this earth that the blood of Jesus will be spread on them, that their hearts will be consecrated to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, that the devil will be cast into the fires of hell, that ugly, evil devil, I am just sick of him. Please God help us?

Song:  Change Our Hearts

Messenger:  Dear God please give us the funds, give us everything that we need to do this, change our hearts oh Father, whatever it is, dear God help us to spread this knowledge of Your burning love in the churches and to the priests, for the sake of the little ones we pray, please Father.

Messenger:  O Jesus, who said, "Ask and you shall receive, seek and you shall find, knock and it shall be opened to you," through the intercession of Our Lady of Fatima in the Americas and Pope John Paul II we pray, please help us to do what You have asked us to do and forgive our imperfections, but look at our hearts and how deeply we love You.

Song:  Change Our Hearts

Messenger:  Our dream is Father that the world will be where people love God and do His will, and little children will have priests.

Song:  Change Our Hearts

Messenger:  We cast the devil into the fires of hell and ask that the blood of Jesus be spread on this earth and that the pressure of the evil serpent is no more and we consecrate all the hearts of the people of this earth to the Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart, please God. We come to you united to the Mass in the pure and holy Hearts of Jesus and Mary that our prayers will be more pure. Hear us.

Song:  Change Our Hearts

Messenger:  Help us God, please.

Song:  Change Our Hearts

Messenger:  And all the hearts of the people of this earth, of the people that could help us, if its the donors or the priests or the bishops, whatever, just to spread the prayer chapters and to do the newsletter the way You want.

Song:  Change Our Hearts

Messenger:  And help so that they don't keep thinking about stuff in the heads and just disregard the things in the hearts, the Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart, the fire of Your love, the Holy Spirit coming upon the people and molding them more and more in Your image and likeness. The devil is just a devil, kick his butt please.

        

Crucifixion

Matthew 27: 50-51

But Jesus, again crying out in a loud voice, yielded up his spirit.

    And suddenly, the veil of the Sanctuary was torn in two from top to bottom, the earth quaked, the rocks were split,

John 19: 25-26

Near the cross of Jesus stood his mother and his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary of Magdala. Seeing his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing near her, Jesus said to his mother, ‘Woman, this is your son.’

 

Messenger:  Dear Father help so that the whole world will know Mary, the Mother of God, our Mother, that the priests will recognize her as Mother of the Church, that the children of this earth will go to Mary, that Our Lady of Clearwater will be known throughout the world as the Mother who appeared to the children, the Lady of Fatima in the Americas, for the little children. Oh God please send us holy priests, lots of them, that the love of the Eucharist be so attuned in their hearts. God please hear us.

John 19: 26-27

...‘Woman, this is your son.’ Then to the disciple he said, ‘This is your mother.’ And from that hour the disciple took her into his home.

 

Messenger:  Help dear God so that people who have made their heads gods learn Your love, that they will know the scriptures and the gifts in the Church and the wisdom in their hearts. God let us love your life, live in us and your word come alive in our hearts. Dear God we pray so deeply that these words can never express what is in us. Look inside of ourselves and see our lives given and our prayers prayed and hear us for the sake of the little souls that are coming up in the world, God. Send us holy priests, we pray. Help us to do what you've asked us to do, provide for us that which we need to do, this, because it's just been hard. God help us. Amen.

    

    God the Father said to alleviate the shortage

1)       Priests are to celebrate Mass every day (don’t skip Mass)

2)       One hour of adoration before the Blessed Sacrament

3)       Begin Shepherds of Christ Prayer Chapters (Red prayer manual) Jesus asked for 11 years ago from Fr. Carter. This is to center their lives in consecration to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary and to help make reparation to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary in the litanies and other prayers praying for the priests, the Church and the world.

4)       Priests must recognize they need a deep union with Mary.

A message for the Earth from Jesus

January 22, 1998

    I am the Good Shepherd, these are My prayers, the prayers I give to help renew the Church and the world, all prayer chapters are asked to include these prayers (found in the Shepherds of Christ Prayer Manual). As My Apostles and Shepherds I ask you to encourage all existing Chapters to try to encourage all existing prayer groups to pray the Shepherds of Christ prayers. Encourage all Churches to pray these prayers. It is most urgent that the people of this earth concur with the Father's wishes to begin Prayer Chapters. This is an urgent request from the Good Shepherd. The flock will become one when they have given their hearts to Jesus and Mary. Encourage all priests to pray the Shepherds of Christ prayers. Your world will be lighted with great light as the people of this earth pray these prayers.

    My promise is this to you My beloved earth: When you give your heart to Me and spread the devotion to My Sacred Heart, I will write your name In My Heart. I promise to give the greatest graces when you pray these prayers for renewal of the Church and the world and take all who pray them deeply into My Heart. The prayers I give will bring about the reign of My Sacred Heart and the triumph of Mary's Immaculate Heart. I am Jesus Christ, this is My message of January 22, 1998, Please circulate this message to your world. I am the Good Shepherd, I know Mine and Mine know Me and they follow Me. Grace My Shepherds, I will give you the greatest graces for spreading these words to this earth and to your Church. I love you, I am Jesus Christ, the Son of Man, it is the Plan of the Father that Prayer Chapters are begun immediately and the Priestly Newsletter is given to all priests. The Voice of the Good Shepherd speaks through it.

Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus

My dear fellow Associate Members,

Jesus is calling special apostles to join a new division of the Shepherds of Christ Movement. Here is a message from Jesus given to Father Carter:

    My beloved priest-companion, I am requesting that a new prayer movement be started under the direction of Shepherds of Christ Ministries. I am asking for volunteers who are willing to pray before the Blessed Sacrament for one hour, twice-weekly. Members of the Shepherds of Christ prayer chapters, as well as others, are to be invited to join this movement.

    These apostles are to pray for the intentions I am giving you. For part of the hour they are to use the prayers of the Shepherds of Christ Associates Handbook. They may spend the rest of the hour as they so choose.

    I will use this new prayer movement within My Shepherds of Christ Ministries in a powerful way to help in the renewal of My Church and the world. I will give great graces to those who join this movement. The name, Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus, is to be given to this movement.

    I am inviting My beloved Rita Ring to be coordinator for this activity.

    I pour out the great love of My Sacred Heart to all. I am Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the flock.

    This is indeed a special calling for us to unite in one heart with His Eucharistic Heart and pray for the following intentions:

  1. For the spread of the devotion to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary culminating in the reign of the Sacred Heart and the triumph of the Immaculate Heart.
  2. For the Pope.
  3. For all bishops of the world.
  4. For all priests.
  5. For all sisters and brothers in the religious life.
  6. For all members of the Shepherds of Christ Movement, and for the spread of this movement to the world.
  7. For all members of the Catholic Church.
  8. For all members of the human family.
  9. For all souls in purgatory.

The Birth of the Full Ministries
of the Shepherds of Christ

    "I wish to share with you part of a message which Jesus gave us on October 13, 1994. The message tells us about the expansion of the Shepherds of Christ movement:

    'My beloved priest-companion, today I come to you with another mission. I am asking you to establish Shepherds of Christ Ministries. At My request you have already begun the priestly newsletter, "Shepherds of Christ", and the prayer chapters, Shepherds of Christ Associates...

    'I am giving you this message on this day, the 77th Anniversary of the Great Apparition at Fatima, because of the close connection between the Shepherds of Christ movement and the Fatima message. The Fatima message is centered in devotion to My Heart and My Mother's Heart, especially in consecration to Our Hearts. Shepherds of Christ Ministries is also centered in devotion to Our Hearts. I will use Shepherds of Christ Ministries as a great instrument in helping to bring about the triumph of the Immaculate Heart and the reign of My Sacred Heart. When this occurs, My Church and the world will be experiencing the great era of peace promised by My Mother at Fatima.

    'Today, then, October 13, 1994, the 77th Anniversary of the Great Apparition at Fatima, marks the birth of Shepherds of Christ Ministries. I pour forth the great love of My Sacred Heart to all. I am Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the flock.'

    "Jesus has told us that Shepherds of Christ Ministries includes: the priestly newsletter, Shepherds of Christ, Shepherds of Christ Associates prayer chapters, various publications, including books, whatever else Our Lord directs us to undertake.

    "As members of Shepherds of Christ Associates, you are an extremely important part of Shepherds of Christ Ministries. You have given great joy to the Heart of Jesus by responding to His invitation to become members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. As He draws you closer to His Heart and to His Mother's Heart as Associates members, He will fill you with an ever-increasing experience of His love, peace, and joy."

Pray For The Success Of The Priestly Newsletter - Shepherds of Christ

Messenger: The following is the first official message I received before the statue of Mary at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center. It is a personal message for Father Carter.

Mary speaks: (in front of the glowing statue of Our Lady of Sorrows) I am the Immaculate Heart. My Heart is glowing for love of all my beloved children. I am your most loving Mother. I am with you this day. Pray for the success of the priestly newsletter Shepherds of Christ. I am guarding your way. You will receive such graces to accomplish this task! Grace from God is so abundantly bestowed on you and will lead to the success of this endeavor! Pray for this cause at the Center. The priests will lead the people to the love of My beloved Son. This is no little task. It will take many prayers and graces. Pray hard, little one. Your prayers will change many hearts.

I am Mary, your Immaculate Mother. I bring this message to My beloved priest-son.

end of August 1, 1994 message

      


                                The Virgin Mary appeared on this
                                    building 7 1/2 years.


                                The world has ignored this sign. 

                            How can we do this —

                                Then somebody knocked off her
                                    image-head —

                                Then the hurricanes started in Florida.

       

March 31, 2006  -   Second Message

Messenger:             A person coming to the Movement
                                    comes to give — to serve—
                                    union with God, helps us
                                    operate in strength.

                                God gives the message —
                                    I receive it.
                                    Those here must thank God and
                                    help me get it — not block
                                    me for selfish feelings and unmet
                                    needs.

                                At Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center
                                    we were kicked out because
                                    people did not want
                                    me saying Mary appeared to me.

                                When Mary appeared in Clearwater
                                    they still didn't believe because
                                    I was involved, they looked for
                                    Mary in spills and leaves and
                                    ignored Our Lady of Clearwater
                                    because they did not want to
                                    believe God spoke to me.

     

 

Exodus 32: 7-14

Yahweh then said to Moses, ‘Go down at once, for your people whom you brought here from Egypt have become corrupt. They have quickly left the way which I ordered them to follow. They have cast themselves a metal calf, worshipped it and offered sacrifice to it, shouting, "Israel, here is your God who brought you here from Egypt!" ’ Yahweh then said to Moses, ‘I know these people; I know how obstinate they are! So leave me now, so that my anger can blaze at them and I can put an end to them! I shall make a great nation out of you instead.’

Moses tried to pacify Yahweh his God. ‘Yahweh,’ he said, ‘why should your anger blaze at your people, whom you have brought out of Egypt by your great power and mighty hand? Why should the Egyptians say, "He brought them out with evil intention, to slaughter them in the mountains and wipe them off the face of the earth?" Give up your burning wrath; relent over this disaster intended for your people. Remember your servants Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, to whom you swore by your very self and made this promise: "I shall make your offspring as numerous as the stars of heaven, and this whole country of which I have spoken, I shall give to your descendants, and it will be their heritage for ever." ’ Yahweh then relented over the disaster which he had intended to inflict on his people.

      

 

Prayer for Union with Jesus

    Come to me, Lord, and possess my soul. Come into my heart and permeate my soul. Help me to sit in silence with You and let You work in my heart.

    I am Yours to possess. I am Yours to use. I want to be selfless and only exist in You. Help me to spoon out all that is me and be an empty vessel ready to be filled by You. Help me to die to myself and live only for You. Use me as You will. Let me never draw my attention back to myself. I only want to operate as You do, dwelling within me.

    I am Yours, Lord. I want to have my life in You. I want to do the will of the Father. Give me the strength to put aside the world and let You operate my very being. Help me to act as You desire. Strengthen me against the distractions of the devil to take me from Your work.

    When I worry, I have taken my focus off of You and placed it on myself. Help me not to give in to the promptings of others to change what in my heart You are making very clear to me. I worship You, I adore You and I love You. Come and dwell in me now.

-God's Blue Book, January 17, 1994

         

 

   

  

March 31, 2006 message continues

Messenger:                It is almost hurricane season
                                again — I think we ought to
                                recognize Our Lady of Clearwater
                                and the fact we knocked off her
                                image-head and ignored her
                                and make reparation for the atrocity.


Messenger:            A woman tried to pass a slow truck
                                on a 60 mph road — when she
                                tried to pass the old truck
                                driver speeded up — a car
                                came from the opposite side
                                and the woman went head on into
                                a barn —
                                broke her collar bone and ended
                                up in the hospital for months —
                                the old truck driver had gone 35 mph on
                                a 60 mph highway and she followed
                                him for what seemed an hour until
                                she thought she could pass —

                              The old truck driver didn't want
                                 anyone passing him — so he put
                                 his foot to the floor and - look
                                 what happened.

                              Are we like this with our brothers —
                                 when I get the messages do
                                 you want me to lie about
                                 Mary's apparitions because
                                 you didn't get them first —

                                Does satan work in male pride
                                    and pride in general and jealousy —

                                What am I to do - so you can
                                     feel better —
                                     God told me to do this and I do it
                                        for the sake of souls.

                                  Mary appeared daily to me for
                                      14 months and has continued
                                      to do so for 12 years —

                                   When Our Lady appeared Our
                                        Lady of Clearwater — people
                                        ignored the messages God
                                        gives me —

                                    The Mother of God is still there
                                        Mary says in a special way
                                        in Clearwater —

                                    Can't people show up on the 5ths
                                        to make reparation as God
                                        has asked us to do for the sins
                                        of the human race in
                                        offending God —

                                    Since Mary's image-head was removed —
                                        Florida has been ravaged with
                                            hurricanes.

                                    Let's come on the 5th and pray
                                        as God has asked —
                                        the Mother of God appeared
                                        there for 7 1/2 years daily
                                        and she says —
                                        she still is there —

Messenger:                11 years Mary has asked me to pray
                                        monthly on the 5ths —
                                        this April 5 is the 11 year
                                        anniversary.

                                   We are arm wrestling with God.

                                   God the Father sent Mary —

                                   Mary is the Queen of Peace.

                                   God is not going to Change His
                                        plan for willful man —

                                    Here are 2 messages from
                                        God the Father the next month after
                                        Mary appeared.

 

January 11, 1997

God the Father: My plan will unfold despite the willfulness of any of My children. I am the Father. I have guided you in all of your activities.

    I am telling you that the members of the Shepherds of Christ must be made aware of the importance of living the Blue Book messages.

    Planning is up to Me. This is My plan and it will unfold. Men plan for the future. I AM.

    I am directing the Shepherds of Christ Movement through these messages.

    I am angered at the lack of response on the part of some to back these messages. You must support these messages so they are lived by man.

    These messages are given from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary to bring about the reign of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the triumph of My beloved Mary's Immaculate Heart.

    You are given all you need. You must adhere to My plan.

    I am the Father. I AM WHO AM. I was in the beginning, I am now and I will be forever.

    I am telling you to obey the directions given by Jesus in these messages.

    My plan will unfold. The completion of the Fatima message will greatly come through the Shepherds of Christ Movement.

    You must circulate the tape, Mary's Message. You must circulate the messages given to you in God's Blue Books and Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

    The renewal in the Church will greatly come through the newsletter and the books published with the imprimatur. You must publish all books on the Mass with the imprimatur. Prayer chapters must be started in the churches.

    The instructions for the priests will come from doing as I have requested. I beg you to circulate the Priestly Newsletter Book to the priests as soon as possible. The priests must be made aware of the Mass Books.

    The Children's Rosary Book must be published immediately. Your work, Fr. Carter and Rita, is to publish this material.

    Heaven has contacted the earth primarily in these messages to bring about the reign of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the triumph of Mary's Immaculate Heart.

    The plan will unfold. It is My plan. You must be obedient to the directions I give to you here. The Movement is a great star of light to this world. From the Movement the earth will be covered with stars of light and the earth will be lighted through your efforts, Fr. Carter.

    I will give you all you need. The plan will unfold. It is My plan to turn sinful men into obedient, loving children.

    I have delivered this message that you will know My plan is unfolding. Many will be lost because of their willfulness. I demand obedience to My requests. The plan will unfold. It pleases Me greatly that you obey My messenger. She is delivering these messages to you from the Son, My beloved Son, God-made-Man.

    The messages of the love of God will be written on the hearts of men through the writings of Fr. Carter and Rita to bring about the reign of His Most Sacred Heart.

    I am displeased with those who have blocked these messages. Anyone continuing to block My messages given through the Hearts of Jesus and Mary will receive a shock that will envelope them.

    The time is very urgent. The time has run out for sinful man. I am angered at the way the world has treated their Mother. Willful children must be punished. I demand obedience. Mary gave to her children her peace plan and she was ignored by the Church and her children. Mary is Mother of the Church and Mother of her children. Willful children must be admonished. Children must obey their Mother.

    Mary appeared on the building in Florida as Mother of all. You have made money your god. You have ignored God and made this world your end.

    I am God. I AM WHO AM, without a beginning, without an end. I am today, tomorrow and always. You do not comprehend My ways with your feeble minds. You must obey the messages given by My Son and His Mother. These messages I give to you as a gift and a great revelation from heaven. You must be thankful and cherish this gift given. I will not remove My gift to you for I know you will obey Me. I will admonish you when you do not respond as you should.

    I have called you and anointed you, My holy priest (Fr. Carter), to lead this world to the light. The Light of the world is My Son, Jesus. His Heart will reign and the heart of your Mother will triumph. I beg you to surrender and obey and watch My plan unfold. There will be a great era of peace very soon, My little children. All you do today will help to save many souls. Many souls will know the love of God through the Shepherds of Christ Movement. Many souls will love God with burning love.

    I give you this gift. Your writings, Fr. Carter, and the writings of My messenger, Rita, will help greatly to bring about the reign of the Sacred Heart.

    I am the Father. I am the Almighty God. You must believe I have chosen you. I have called each member here this day to hear this message. I have called you to be the apostles of the new era of peace. I have called you by name. You will lead men to the Heart of My Son. You must listen and focus all of your attention to this mission I have given to you.

    I am the Father. From the day you were conceived, I formed you in your mother's womb, knowing the great mission I would call you to today. My children, My children, do not be distracted by the evil one to lead you astray. I am counting on you, My beloved shepherds. You must not be led astray by doing other good works. I have called you, this is My plan, it is unfolding. You are a major part of the success of this plan for the renewal of the Church and the world.

    Your work in the Shepherds of Christ Movement greatly pleases Me.

    I AM, WHO AM. I am the Alpha and the Omega. I am the Almighty God. You must be obedient children. It is through your obedience that the consecration will spread to many souls on the earth.

    It is through your obedience to help spread the priestly newsletter and start prayer chapters in churches that many priests will love God with the greatest love in the Mass. I am asking you to spread the Mass Book to priests and sisters. Please pray for the priestly newsletter, the quick spread of the material given in the newsletter and for the priests reading the newsletter.

    Heaven has contacted the earth. The light will shine in the dark corners of the world. Men will respond to the Shepherds of Christ Movement. You must not be afraid. You must do as I have asked you.

    I have called you by name, My chosen ones, from the beginning I formed you and I gave to you the talents needed to accomplish this mission on the earth.

    Your talents are gifts from Me to be used for this purpose. You are the Shepherds of Christ. You are the apostles of the new era.

    There will be a new earth, there will be love on this earth as I intend it to be. My children will love one another, you will walk hand in hand, loving God and one another in harmony and peace.

R. ...Thy kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven...

Jn 1:1-18 (From The New Jerusalem Bible):

In the beginning was the Word:
the Word was with God
and the Word was God.
He was with God in the beginning.
Through Him all things came into being,
not one thing came into being except through Him.
What has come into being in Him was life,
life that was the light of men;
and light shines in darkness,
and darkness could not overpower it.

A man came, sent by God.
His name was John.
He came as a witness,
to bear witness to the light,
so that everyone might believe through him.
He was not the light,
he was to bear witness to the light.
The Word was the real light
that gives light to everyone;
he was coming into the world.
He was in the world
that had come into being through him,
and the world did not recognize him.

He came to his own
and his own people did not accept Him.
But to those who did accept Him
he gave power to become children of God,
to those who believe in his name
who were born not from human stalk
or human desire
or human will
but from God himself.
The Word became flesh,
He lived among us,
and we saw His glory,
the glory that he has from the Father as only Son of the Father,
full of grace and truth.

John witness to him. He proclaims:
'This is the one of whom I said:
He who comes after me
has passed ahead of me
because he existed before me.'

Indeed, from his fullness we have, all of us, received--
one gift replacing another,
for the Law was given through Moses,
grace and truth have come through Jesus Christ.
No one has ever seen God;
it is the only Son, who is close to the Father's heart,
who has made him known.

R. We do not even see Our Father as so important to us.

    A little child is always aware of their father. A little child knows how dependent he is on his father, always wanting to please his father.

    A little child is always aware of his mother and obeying her. A little child loves his mother. Look at how unloving we are to Mary.

    We are children of God, with God the Father as Our Father and Mary as our heavenly Mother.

January 18, 1997

God the Father:  My Dear Children,

I am the Father. My plan is unfolding through you, My beloved priest, Fr. Carter, and Rita and the core group in the Shepherds of Christ Movement.

I tell you all to read the accounts concerning Noah. Nowhere in history has God been offended as He is this day by this sinful world. You will suffer a fate for the offenses against God.

Mary appeared at Fatima to warn you, the sinful children, how they were offending God, but you did not listen. The war did not change the hearts of many evil men.

I warn you through My beloved daughter, Mary. You did not heed her warnings. Disobedience against the Mother I gave you displeases Me greatly. Mary is the Mother of all children. Mary is a gift from Me, but you are willful and abuse the gift I send you.

You do not make reparation to her Immaculate Heart; you continue to offend her. I will not tolerate the deeds of evil men any longer.

My plan will unfold. Any disobedience to these messages given by Me, My Son, or your Mother Mary will cause Me great displeasure.

I am the Father, the Almighty God, the Alpha, the Omega; you are a sinful people, a chosen race sinning against a loving God.

I am angered at your ways for they are not My ways, you have run amuck, you have offended your God, you have disobeyed your Mother and My beloved Son who died to save you.

I will act on all who continue in such sin. The sheep will be separated from the goats; the goats will receive punishment for their deed. Heaven and earth will kiss, there will be love in all hearts, justice will prevail and My children will be children of light, children that obey as I intended from the beginning.

Oh indeed My sweet messenger, I look to the earth and see the darkness, I see the disobedience of men against their Mother. I know the deeds committed and the evil in the hearts of so many. Justice will prevail and I will wipe out the earth. Only the children of light will remain, those who have given their hearts to their Mother Mary.

Do you think I send your Mother Mary as a messenger to be disobeyed by willful children? What do you think about at night, the cat, the dog, the fish? You don't know love. You don't love God or one another. This is My command to you, to love. You are a sinful, willful race, and the devil will vanish from the hearts of the children of light for they will be under the protection of her Immaculate Heart, the other children will be wiped off the face of the earth.

Disobey My messenger, ignore your Mother, ignore the Son in these messages. Ignore My Son who died for you.

Oh you sinful people filled with pride and disobedience, I give you the directions here to turn your hearts to love.

My Son has revealed Himself as never before in history into His tremendous love for men and you treat Our gift with such indifference.

I am angered at the lack of support to spread the messages of My Son's love for all.

You worry for funds, worry more, I am God the Father, the Almighty God. You disobeyed Mary, you disobeyed Jesus, now you will disobey Me?

You must obey My directions, the directions given through My Son, Jesus for the unfolding of the Father's plan.

No longer will I wait while willful men check and deliberate and disobey.

My plan will unfold through the Shepherds of Christ Movement.

I am talking through these messages given by My Son and Mary to tell you how to accomplish this task of carrying out My plan.

You must obey. The directions are given in these messages to spread the fire of God's love across this earth, to renew the Church and the world.

Because of willful men these messages have been held in check.

I am God, the maker of all things. You have made money your god. I want obedience, the funds will come when you obey all of the directions I have given to you.

Anyone who interferes with these messages will be removed.

These are the messages I give to the world. Fr. Carter's newsletter will teach the priests, all they need to know to be holy, loving priests.

Many priests are not loving, they are cold in their hearts. I will instruct the clergy through the newsletter.

My Son is the Chief Priest and Teacher. He has taught the world the secrets of His Heart through the writings of Fr. Carter and Rita, to go to men to check the value of these writings displeases Me.

You must have faith, you must study the entire revelations given here. You are not valuing My great gift to you.

I am the power, I am God, to the ends of the earth, I will be with you. My plan will unfold. You must think big, not on a human level. You must come to Me.

Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy Name, Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

I am telling you to circulate the tape of January 13 (1997) as soon as possible. This tape must be released to the world. It is the message to go with the apparition on the building in Florida.

You must make every connection with Mary's message given December 12 (1996) and the messages given by Mary with the apparition of her on the building in Florida.

Time is very short and My patience is very thin. I will strike the earth and the evil men will scatter and there will be a reign of peace where men will love God as I intended. The evil men will be chastised for I sent your Mother to warn you and you disobeyed. I gave My Son as a sacrifice and you treated Him with indifference. I am angry at the creatures on this earth. I will lessen the chastisement if you make reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Oh willful children, you disobey your Mother, you are unloving and willful and your ways are evil. You are a sinful race.

I am sending water, rain to quench your thirst, My beloved children of light; I am sending fire to burn the fields for the sinful children, they will suffer drought and will fall to the ground dead, they will know fire, they will know the wrath of God. For I speak and I am ignored.

I am using the Shepherds of Christ Movement to majorly carry out the plan begun at Fatima. Every day lost is a lost day. I give to you Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary as your directions to help the plan unfold. Circulate these rosaries to all chapters and stress their importance.

The tape of January 13 (1997) is important to the world. The tape must be circulated with the apparition in Florida and the messages typed and put on the Internet with the rest of the messages I have given. The connection must be made between the apparition and the Shepherds of Christ Movement.

Satan will attack you strongly, he will create division and give messages through other visionaries to get you off coarse. You must obey My directions given in these messages to help bring about the completion of the Fatima message.

I will weed out anyone interfering with My plan.

I will tell you when you have deviated from My plan, do not taunt My messenger, this displeases Me. Read the messages for direction and obey them.

The directions given are strong to correct a sick world. You must quit focusing on the messenger and obey Me.

I am the Father, these are My messages to bring about the reign of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the triumph of Mary's Immaculate Heart.

You think of money and miss the gift given. You are men bolted to the earth. You must obey Me. I have all the power.

March 31, 2006 message continues

Jesus speaks:                       Judas betrayed Me with a
                                        kiss. Judas betrayed Me with
                                        a  kiss. Judas betrayed Me with
                                        a kiss.

                                            Today so many who once prayed
                                        and went to the Catholic Church
                                        have left the Church. They
                                        received the sacraments of baptism, confirmation,
                                        communion, penance in the
                                        Church and have left.

                                            The priest scandal hurt
                                        many people's commitment to the
                                        Church. The way the world is accepting
                                        divorce as the every day thing has
                                        effected people who may have stayed
                                        married working things out and
                                        stayed in the Church.

THE GLORIOUS MYSTERIES

The Resurrection

  1. Messenger: I could hardly walk after the Mass, for He filled me with His Presence.
  2. Yesterday the agony of the realization of division and lack of oneness in the world filled me with such suffering and I knew something of hell and its lack of love. I knew something of the pain of division from God for all eternity.
  3. Today I was filled with such oneness for God and His creatures as He embraced me and overwhelmed me with His loving Presence as I existed in a heightened level in Him.
  4. The heights of this ecstasy is a taste of the everlasting embrace of our God in His love, existing in Him for all eternity. And so I write in this rosary of the One Who came forth victorious from the tomb and how I walk in His footprints.
  5. In my Bible is seen the cave where Christ was born in Bethlehem, and a tomb thought to be similar to the one He came out of after the Resurrection.
  6. He was born in a cave in the belly of the earth. He came forth victorious out of the tomb, both in the belly of the earth.
  7. In John’s Gospel it says the tomb of this New Adam was in a garden.
  8. He rose victorious from the dead.
  9. As we give ourselves in consecration to the New Adam and the New Eve, we put our tainted hearts in Their two pure and holy Hearts.
  10. Love is in Him.

Messenger: I ask the second reading from today’s Mass and the Gospel appear here.

Romans 8:18-23

Glory is our destiny

In my estimation, all that we suffer in the present time is nothing in comparison with the glory which is destined to be disclosed for us, for the whole creation is waiting with eagerness for the children of God to be revealed. It was not for its own purposes that creation had frustration imposed on it, but for the purposes of him who imposed it--with the intention that the whole creation itself might be freed from its slavery to corruption and brought into the same glorious freedom as the children of God. We are well aware that the whole creation, until this time, has been groaning in labour pains. And not only that: we too, who have the first-fruits of the Spirit, even we are groaning inside ourselves, waiting with eagerness for our bodies to be set free.

Matthew 13:1-23

Introduction

That same day, Jesus left the house and sat by the lakeside, but such large crowds gathered round him that he got into a boat and sat there. The people all stood on the shore, and he told them many things in parables.

Parable of the sower

He said, ‘Listen, a sower went out to sow. As he sowed, some seeds fell on the edge of the path, and the birds came and ate them up. Others fell on patches of rock where they found little soil and sprang up at once, because there was no depth of earth; but as soon as the sun came up they were scorched and, not having any roots, they withered away. Others fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up and choked them. Others fell on rich soil and produced their crop, some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty. Anyone who has ears should listen!

Why Jesus speaks in parables

Then, the disciples went up to him and asked, ‘Why do you talk to them in parables?’ In answer, he said, ‘Because to you is granted to understand the mysteries of the kingdom of Heaven, but to them it is not granted. Anyone who has will be given more and will have more than enough; but anyone who has not will be deprived even of what he has. The reason I talk to them in parables is that they look without seeing and listen without hearing or understanding. So in their case what was spoken by the prophet Isaiah is being fulfilled:

Listen and listen, but never understand!
Look, and look, but never perceive!
This people’s heart has grown coarse,
     their ears dulled,
 they have shut their eyes tight
 to avoid using their eyes to see,
     their ears to hear,
 their heart to understand,
 changing their ways
     and being healed by me.

‘But blessed are your eyes because they see, your ears because they hear! In truth I tell you, many prophets and upright people longed to see what you see, and never saw it; to hear what you hear, and never heard it.

The parable of the sower explained

‘So pay attention to the parable of the sower. When anyone hears the word of the kingdom without understanding, the Evil One comes and carries off what was sown in his heart: this is the seed sown on the edge of the path. The seed sown on patches of rock is someone who hears the word and welcomes it at once with joy. But such a person has no root deep down and does not last; should some trial come, or some persecution on account of the word, at once he falls away. The seed sown in thorns is some one who hears the word, but the worry of the world and the lure of riches choke the word and so it produces nothing. And the seed sown in rich soil is someone who hears the word and understands it; this is the one who yields a harvest and produces now a hundredfold, now sixty, now thirty.’

Messenger: The Sorrowful Mysteries I received before Mass, the Glorious Mysteries after Mass. I saw in Mass that He was strengthening my roots so that I existed firmly rooted in Him.

The Ascension

  1. Messenger: And so our life is lived in the Pascal Mystery of death-Resurrection.
  2. It is in the dying we are brought to greater life in Him.
  3. We carry the cross, we look beaten, battered and torn and the glory of that day is the increased new life in Him that follows.
  4. Having been beaten, Jesus, the New Adam hung on the cross about to die.
  5. The glory of that new day was the life that came forth in the victory of the Resurrected Lord.
  6. We came forth, the children of Eve. We are given a sharing in His life through Baptism. We are washed through the Sacrament of Reconciliation and we are refreshed more and more with a feeding of greater life in Him in the Holy Eucharist.
  7. One Bread, one Body - one life rooted in Him.
  8. We die to those things that are not like Him. We are refreshed with increased life in Him.
  9. He ascended into heaven and He left the work of reaching the world in our hands.
  10. We are commissioned in Baptism to do His work, the work of the Good Shepherd. We offer ourselves, our lives, in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, in which the Sacrifice of Calvary is sacramentally made present.

We identify with Him. We are one in the pure and holy Hearts of Jesus and Mary. We offer a most pure sacrifice to the Father united in the holy Hearts of the New Adam and the New Eve.

Vision of Lucia, main visionary of Fatima, 1929

The Descent of the Holy Spirit

  1. Messenger: Grace and mercy are poured forth on the earth from the Father in the Holy Spirit through the pierced Heart of Jesus Christ.
  2. Through Him all graces flow.
  3. Mary the Immaculate one is the spotless Virgin conceived without sin, full of grace.
  4. And the Holy Spirit descended upon the Apostles.
  5. No longer did they have problems communicating. They were united in one mind and one heart to preach the Gospel.
  6. One tongue, it is the language in which we speak of His world, of life in Him.
  7. Victors are the souls who unite to the pure and holy Hearts of the New Adam and the New Eve.
  8. They came forth victorious from the tomb.
  9. They wear the white robes of glory, washed in the Blood of the Lamb, filled with the Holy Spirit and they sing.
  10. Song: Holy God, We Praise Thy Name
    Song: Come Holy Ghost.

The Assumption

  1. Messenger: Both Jesus and Mary, the New Adam, the New Eve are in heaven.
  2. Jesus ascended into heaven. Mary was taken up body and soul.
  3. We live transformed in Their two pure and holy Hearts.
  4. We offer a most holy sacrifice uniting our hearts to Their two Hearts and we unite to the Mass all day as a sacrifice.
  5. We plead to the Father for forgiveness for the children of Adam and Eve.
  6. We beg for grace to be outpoured on the earth.
  7. We want help from the SAVIOR to save us from our sins.
  8. Men give themselves in consecration to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.
  9. Death will be no more. (1 Corinthians 15:26)
    and the last of the enemies to be done away with is death, for he has put all things under his feet.
  10. 1 Corinthians 15:54-55

A hymn of triumph, Conclusion

And after this perishable nature has put on imperishability and this mortal nature has put on immortality, then will the words of scripture come true: Death is swallowed up in victory. Death, where is your victory? Death where is your sting? Death is swallowed up in victory. Death, where is your victory? Death, where is your sting?

Messenger: Thanks be to God Who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

The Coronation

  1. Revelation 3:12-13
    Anyone who proves victorious I will make into a pillar in the sanctuary of my God, and it will stay there for ever; I will inscribe on it the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem which is coming down from my God in heaven, and my own new name as well. Let anyone who can hear, listen to what the Spirit is saying to the churches."
  2. Revelation 4:11
        You are worthy, our Lord and God,
        to receive glory and honour and power,
        for you made the whole universe;
        by your will, when it did not exist,
             it was created.
  3. Revelation 5:9-10
        They sang a new hymn:
        You are worthy to take the scroll
        and to break its seals,
        because you were sacrificed,
             and with your blood
        you bought people for God
        of every race, language, people and nation
        and made them
             a line of kings and priests for God,
         to rule the world.
  4. Revelation 12:1-2
    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. She was pregnant, and in labour, crying aloud in the pangs of childbirth.
  5. The New Eve triumphant. The New Adam will reign.
  6. God has visited His people.
  7. The Resurrected Lord remains with us in the Holy Eucharist.
  8. We receive Him, we eat His Body.
  9. Message given to Jacinta by Our Lady:

Excerpt from The Spirituality of Fatima and Medjugorje, p. 18

Tell everybody that God gives graces through the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Tell them to ask grace from her, and that the Heart of Jesus wishes to be venerated together with the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Ask them to plead for peace from the Immaculate Heart of Mary, for the Lord has confided the peace of the world to her. 19

19 Our Lady’s Peace Plan, op. cit., p. 30.

  1. Those who give their hearts to Jesus and Mary, the New Adam, the New Eve, and unite at every moment to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass-- they will be the victors.
