A Prayer for Intimacy with the Lamb
the Bridegroom of the soul

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

                            Purpose of the Spiritual Exercises

From The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius
    by Louis J. Puhl, S.J.  p. 11

21.                     SPIRITUAL EXERCISES

    Which have as their purpose the conquest of self
    and the regulation of one's life in such a way that
    no decision is made under the influence of any
    inordinate attachment


                             Sing Song:  Take Lord Receive


From The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius
    by Louis J. Puhl, S.J.  p. 25

46. PRAYER.  In the preparatory prayer I will beg God
our Lord for grace that all my intentions, actions, 
and operations may be directed purely to the 
praise and service of His Divine Majesty.


                             Meditate for 30 minutes


From The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius
    by Louis J. Puhl, S.J.  p. 12

                                23. FIRST PRINCIPLE AND FOUNDATION

                             Man is created to praise, reverence and serve God 
                             our Lord, and by this means to save his soul.


February 6, 2004 message continues

Messenger:         We need to sit in silence and exercise
                                our spiritual faculties.

                            Always our intent is to be more deeply 
                                united to Our God.

                            It is intimacy that God wants with the soul.

                            Our intention in these exercises is to be open,
                                to pray for special grace from God to help
                                us to be ever closer to Him.


                            From page 1 from The Spiritual Exercises of
                                St. Ignatius by Louis J. Puhl, S.J.  

                                1. By the term "Spiritual Exercises" is meant every 
                                method of examination of conscience, of meditation, of
                                contemplation, of vocal and mental prayer, and of
                                other spiritual activities that will be mentioned later.
                                For just as taking a walk, journeying on foot, and running
                                are bodily exercises, so we call Spiritual Exercises
                                every way of preparing and disposing the soul to rid
                                itself of all inordinate attachments, and, after their
                                removal, of seeking and finding the will of God in the
                                disposition of our life for the salvation of our soul.


February 6, 2004 message continues

Messenger:        In the Blue Book Messages and the Prayer for
                             Union with Jesus, we see how Jesus
                             calls us to the tabernacle and wants
                             us to sit in silence with Him.


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

Messenger:      Fr. Carter gave me two Spiritual Exercises books
                            he told me he ordered for me. I got two
                            because I thought I lost one.
                            He told me how important the Spiritual
                            Exercises were to me and the Movement
                            and our spiritual life.

                         He was very serious about what a special gift
                            this book was to me.
                         Every year when he made his 8 day retreat he
                            told me he wanted me to make one at the
                            same time.
                             He was very serious about his retreat.
                            He loved God so much and he wanted to love
                                Him more, giving Him great love.
                            He was my spiritual director.

                            Fr. Carter was very serious about his Jesuit



February 6, 2004 message continues

Messenger:        Today was a special feast to him, I always
                                remembered him celebrating Mass on this
                                feast day.

I loved the Jesuit saints and the Jesuit lectionary.
    God gave me very special favors at Mass on
    the Feasts of St. Ignatius and especially St. Francis
    Xavier which is why I have such a very  
    deep love for St. Francis Xavier. I know him
deep in my heart.




February 6, 2004 message continues

Messenger:        These are some of the readings we used at Mass
                                on this special feast of St. Francis Xavier.


1 Corinthians 9: 16-19, 22-23

In fact, preaching the gospel gives me nothing to boast of, for I am under compulsion and I should be in trouble if I failed to do it. If I did it on my own initiative I would deserve a reward; but if I do it under compulsion I am simply accepting a task entrusted to me. What reward do I have, then? That in my preaching I offer the gospel free of charge to avoid using the rights which the gospel allows me. 

    So though I was not a slave to any human being, I put myself in slavery to all people, to win as many as I could.

To the weak, I made myself weak, to win the weak. I accommodated myself to people in all kinds of different situations, so that by all possible means I might bring some to salvation. All this I do for the sake of the gospel, that I may share its benefits with others.


Mark 16: 15-20  

And he said to them, ‘Go out to the whole world; proclaim the gospel to all creation. Whoever believes and is baptised will be saved; whoever does not believe will be condemned. These are the signs that will be associated with believers: in my name they will cast out devils; they will have the gift of tongues; they will pick up snakes in their hands and be unharmed should they drink deadly poison; they will lay their hands on the sick, who will recover.’ 

    And so the Lord Jesus, after he had spoken to them, was taken up into heaven; there at the right hand of God he took his place, while they, going out, preached everywhere, the Lord working with them and confirming the word by the signs that accompanied it.

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.

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.

Messenger:        Think how important it is to Jesus these prayer
                                chapters are started by the priests in
                                their parishes around the world.

                            Today is First Friday.

                            9 years ago I got a message to have the 
                                public gatherings on the 5th of
                                each month because of the 5
                                blasphemies against Mary and in
                                honor of the 5 wounds of Jesus.
