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.

Messenger: Include Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center in 6:20 prayers.

Messenger: Please pray fervently for two intentions! Please!

From a message received from Jesus today...

"I have called you to My site in China, Indiana, My Mother has requested the day be dedicated to praying for healing for My beloved priest-son, founder of My Movement, Shepherds of Christ.

Messenger: Jesus wants the Mass said to bring healing graces through the intercession of Our Lady of Clearwater for our founder Fr. Carter.

Jesus speaks: It should be made known, the founder is extremely ill and in need of physical healing to remain on earth. I ask the whole world to join in these prayers of healing especially on this date the 83 anniversary of My Mother's appearance at Fatima. (October 13, 2000)

I desire the message I gave to the founder October 13, 1994, be given with this message.

Messenger: Jesus wants us united all over the world praying for Fr. Carter for healing especially October 13, 2000.

Our special service at 12:00 will begin with Mass, prayers and rosary and will last from 12:00 to 5:00.

Please unite with us during this time to pray for healing of Fr. Carter through the powerful intercession of Our Lady of Clearwater.

Messenger: Jesus has told me to ask you to pray for 3 urgent intentions.

We have laid down our lives for this mission and the Movement Jesus gave to us.

He called the Ministries October 13, 1994.

Excerpt from Apostles' Manual, page 2

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."

- From In the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, Newsletter of Shepherds of Christ Associates
by founder, Volume 1, No. 1, 1995. p. 2.

(End of Excerpt from Apostles' Manual)

Messenger: He called the special gatherings on the 13th of October, 1996, and He called them to be apostles.

We asked the people who wished to be recognized as apostles and were willing to live by the rules Jesus set: daily Mass, one hour of adoration, living by the messages given from heaven, and saying the prayers they told us.

On June 13, 2000, and July 5, 2000, 72 people came forth to be full-fledged apostles of the Shepherds of Christ. They felt the calling in their hearts, the first apostles were recognized June 13, 2000, in China, Indiana, and July 5, 2000, in Florida for a total of 72 apostles. We did not plan it, they independently felt the calling in their hearts and came forward. The total was 72.

Luke 10: 1-12

The mission of the seventy-two disciples

After this the Lord appointed seventy-two others and sent them out ahead of him in pairs, to all the towns and places he himself would be visiting. And he said to them, ‘The harvest is rich but the labourers are few, so ask the Lord of the harvest to send labourers to do his harvesting. Start off now, but look, I am sending you out like lambs among wolves. Take no purse with you, no haversack, no sandals. Salute no one on the road. Whatever house you enter, let your first words be, "Peace to this house!" And if a man of peace lives there, your peace will go and rest on him; if not, it will come back to you. Stay in the same house, taking what food and drink they have to offer, for the labourer deserves his wages; do not move from house to house. Whenever you go into a town where they make you welcome, eat what is put before you. Cure those in it who are sick, and say, "The kingdom of God is very near to you." But whenever you enter a town and they do not make you welcome, go out into its streets and say, "We wipe off the very dust of your town that clings to our feet, and leave it with you. Yet be sure of this: the kingdom of God is very near." I tell you, on the great Day it will be more bearable for Sodom than for that town.

Messenger: Again we gathered in Florida for the 5th as we were asked to do. Mary was very gold through the rosary. Pictures will follow this week, we prayed for the healing of Fr. Carter, our founder. We prayed for forgiveness for our sins. We prayed as a human race begging God to forgive us. We prayed in union with the Mass begging for grace and mercy for souls.

Please pray for the elections in the United States.

Jesus speaks: I beg you to choose life. Killing anyone is against the 5th Commandment.

I give you gifts from heaven. My Mother cries for the massacre of her unborn children. I bleed for My children murdered.

You must vote for life.

















The children that come forth from the womb of Mary are children of light.

The womb of a mother is a sacred place.

The spiritual womb of our Mother is her Immaculate Heart. Mary's children are children of the LIGHT.

Deuteronomy 30: 19

Today, I call heaven and earth to witness against you: I am offering you life or death, blessing or curse. Choose life, then, so that you and your descendants may live,

Messenger: Sing the song: Choose Life.


Mass Book II Entry

Excerpt from October 6, 1999 daily message

Messenger: We are a people endangered by Satan's snare.

The Mass is the ongoing Sacrifice offered to the Father to reconcile men to God.

Jesus on the cross at Immaculata Church


Messenger: It says in scripture:

Matthew 11:25

At that time Jesus exclaimed, 'I bless you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, for hiding these things from the learned and the clever and revealing them to little children.

Messenger: He comes, Jesus, the Son of God, Savior, to reconcile a fallen race to God.

The Sacrifice of Calvary is sacramentally made present on our altars today.

We pray for the priests offering sacrifice.

What is the power in this great prayer, the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass?

The handmaid stood beneath the cross, she knew exactly how to pray to bring down the greatest graces.

When the Church began, God left Mary on earth, pleading at the altars as the perfect handmaid, the one human person conceived without sin, the New Eve, the sinless one, pleading beneath the altar as the New Adam is the Chief-Priest and Victim.

A fallen human race, tainted in their hearts with sin.

A spotless offering, the Body and Blood of Jesus offered to the Father for our sins.

The connection is with God and the whole human race.

Participating in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, we can't be like little people disunited from each other.

We are one body participating in the Sacrifice, pleading for the world.

We realize that it is:

        WITH HIM
        AND IN HIM
        we are saved.

We come as little ones. We go to the Immaculate Heart of the Woman. She crushes the head of the serpent. Jesus' Blood is offered in the Sacrifice.

He is what?
        SAVIOR of the world!

We are so foolish to disconnect in our hearts from the Holy One of Israel, from the Savior of the world, from the Woman who stood beneath that tree, the only one who could stand in Immaculate purity in her Heart.

Why has Mary not been recognized in the Church as she should be?

The devil knows she is the key.

What has been hidden from the learned and the clever comes through so clear in the minds of little children.

He can unlock our minds, lift the veil, give us the light in less than the batting of an eye.

The children of Mary are brought forth children of light. The Holy Spirit works in connection with His spouse to bring forth the children of Eve into greater light in the spiritual womb of Mary - her Immaculate Heart.

What is hidden from the learned and clever has been revealed to the merest children.

God unlocks the mind as He so desires.

Insight into the Divine Mysteries is not like the study of a history book. It comes from God acting on the soul with His grace.

What does it say in the Litany of the Sacred Heart?

"Heart of Jesus, in whom are all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.

"What does it say in the Litany of the Blessed Virgin Mary?

"Mother of divine grace."

What is the fourth entry in the Litany of the Sacred Heart?

"God the Son, Redeemer of the world"

What are the 7th and 8th entries?

"Heart of Jesus, Son of the eternal Father,

Heart of Jesus, formed by the Holy Spirit in the womb of the Virgin Mother."

What is the 11th entry?

"Heart of Jesus, sacred temple of God."

Are we not searching? Mary is searching for her little children to lead them to the sacred temple of God.

Children of Mary come to the light, come to the Immaculate Heart of the Woman. It is there the Light of the world was brought forth. He is the First Fruit. We are to bear fruit in this world. We are to be brought forth as children of light from the spiritual womb of the Lady Clothed with the Sun.

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.

Messenger: We are so blind we do not see.

The word needs to take root in our hearts.

The word needs to be alive in our hearts.

We live and dwell in Him in His Sacred Heart.

He is the Word, the Savior of the World.

Revelation 22:20

The one who attests these things says: I am indeed coming soon. Amen; come, Lord Jesus.

A Song from Jesus


Messenger: JESUS IS the SAVIOR of the World.

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.
(Revelation 12:1)

Sorrowful MotherMary's Message from the Rosary of August 27, 1996

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

Song: O Lady of Light, shining so bright, be with us this day, guiding our way, O Lady, O Lady of Light.

Mary speaks: I appear to you as Our Mother of Sorrows.

(End of Mary's Message)
