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.

Shepherds of Christ prayers, and the live meditations by Rita Ring.
Mary appeared at Fatima May 13, 1917 - October 13, 1917, 6 apparitions.
I called the meetings of October 13, 1996 - March 13, 1997, in which I gave important messages concerning the completion of the Fatima mission (6 rosaries with Father Carter). My Mother appeared on the building in Florida December 17, 1996, after 3 rosaries. These rosaries were messages from Me to help complete the mission begun by My Mother at Fatima.
I have continued to give special information on the 13th of each month to help bring about the Reign of the Sacred Heart and Triumph of My Mothers Heart and lead men to a deeper intimate union with Me. The Shepherds of Christ is My Movement to help bring about this most holy spousal union between men and God.

Message for Apostles - October 11, 1999
Jesus speaks: My chosen ones, I wish you to obey the messages.
Your energy lies in following My plan exactly as directed.
I wish all gatherings for social purposes to be on the 17th of each month. I wish this date to be observed this month, any indications otherwise must be stopped. Notify all that this is a special invitation from Me to come on the 17th of this month and I wish all who are able to attend. The prayers and rosary will begin as usual at 2:00 p.m. The meeting will be as follows: There will be a break for dinner or snack, but there should be a silent period to maintain some privacy after the rosary. I want you to reflect on My messages after the rosary. You will gather again at 6:20 p.m., the children in the barn, the adults in the house. You as adults will pray strictly the prayers as directed and the rosary without any meditations. The social will follow. I do want you to observe this date for the social. I do not wish you to change directions. Follow them as closely as possible. This is your answer when confused. Satan will try to confuse you always. The messages will work. You must follow them as if I am talking to you. I am directing the Movement through the messages. I am pleased with all your attempts to try to do this work. I help you understand what I desire most.
I want obedience to the messages. I will give great grace to you for following the messages. When in doubt ask yourself, "What does the message say?" I am not in any way displeased with you who struggle with finding a solution, but the solution is in always doing what I tell you in the messages.
I want the meetings for the 17th held on the 17th of each month. I want all who can come to Florida December 17, 1999, to come there. Mary wants the apostles gathered in prayer, but if you cannot come, then you pray fervently. I do not wish business problems solved during this 17th meeting, I want celebration from the earth.
Will you thank God and honor Mary as the Father wishes? This is your focus. The devil gets you focused on little details. One person can cause a chain reaction in others by deciding he has a problem that must be settled. You must put your heads together.
In the Fathers family there is acceptance of one another and love. I have graced you with love, My beloved couples. I thank you for your lives given together in service to serve Me. My apostles, I love you so much, My handmaids and servants and Fred, I love you so much. I love, I love you, I love you. When I direct and teach, it is not to make you feel guilty, it is to accomplish that which I desire to happen. I want you to work toward My plan and be attentive to My wishes. You are My pupils, I am telling you what I wish. Do not feel bad, I must tell you or you will not know. I know you want to serve Me, My apostles.
I love you, Jesus.
He Knocks at the Door of our Hearts
Jesus: I will knock on the door of their hearts and whoever opens I will come in and I will sup with thee.
John 14: 6 I am the Way; I am Truth and Life...
Jesus: I am He Whose bootstraps you are unworthy to fasten and I come to you with greatest love, My beloved dear ones.
Oh, how I love thee. Oh, how I wait for you. I ardently love you with an unfathomable love, yet you keep yourselves at arm's length from Me. Some never even come close to Me.
I stand, I knock. I wait so patiently. Gently, I treat you. You do not comprehend the great love I have for you.
I beckon you to listen to My words here, for I truly speak to you. Remove the crust from your eyes. Pray that you may see with hearts that are open to Me, that clear vision is had in your hearts. You look, you wonder, you roam, you cover your eyes. You close your hearts and I watch you, so gently do I tap. So willful you are and set in your ways.
I knock, I knock, I knock so gently and patiently. All that you want, all that you need is found in Me, yet you turn your backs and miss My great love for you.
My dear, dear loved ones. I love you with unfathomable love. I knock, I knock, I knock minute-by-minute, second-by-second. I tend to your needs. Harken to My call. I love you, I love you, I love you. I am Jesus, your Savior on fire for love of you, My dear, dear chosen ones.
You think I do not know your sufferings. I know everything about you. I ponder the ways of your heart. I know you far better than you know yourself. I am Jesus, your beloved Spouse, the Bridegroom of your soul. Harken to Me. I love you, I love you, I love you. This is My love letter to you, My sweet ones.
Q: How do I feel my relationship with Jesus, my Bridegroom, is made so much fuller by loving you?
