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.

I _________________ give my heart to
You Jesus and Mary on this day

I promise to help spread the devotion to
the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.


Messenger: Dear Apostles,

I give my heart to Jesus and Mary with you in love.

I give my heart to all of you on Valentine's Day.

Today more than any day I realize I am the spouse of Jesus. The children of the earth are God's. We live to love and serve Him and help bring forth fruit for the kingdom. Our hearts are for love. We work hard all day serving Him and we rest our weary head on His shoulder and He promises us rest.

I see Him on the way to Calvary, beaten and red and bloodied and bruised and yet His Heart beat inside filled with the burning love for souls.

As His spouse we identify with all He wants. It's like Debby's song He cries "Bring Me Souls".

He thirsts for souls.

We get up, we feel weary, we put our feet on the floor, but the love in our hearts pulsates for Him and for all souls, we just Love Him so much and we love everyone so much. We are like one running a race. Father Carter is in the seat and he has won and all the saints are united to us cheering us on and sometimes we walk slower and feel "all beat up" and Jesus says, "Oh My precious spouse, I love you, I give Myself completely to you everyday in the Eucharist, I wait for you to come and be in communion with Me." We are the ones that hold back. The greatest peace is in surrendering, in just letting go, in living our spousal union with Christ, in being so connected to our heavenly family. I feel warm and cozy inside even when I am tired, I am so united to Jesus my Spouse, my Father is my Father, Jesus' Father, the Holy Spirit fills my heart with fire for love of God and I am so united to the heavenly body of saints and angels. I am also united to the souls in purgatory praying for them.

God is so good to us. On this day we can really ask God to help us to Love. He is our Valentine. This is real. The most important thing that matters is to be united to God and all others. In the end it comes down to this, what makes us happy is to be possessed by God, this is our goal, this is our victory, this is why we were created.

It is in surrendering as a little child to the Father's will. It is seeing a wider vision, the vision our God wants us to see.

It is all about relationship with God and others, so for all eternity we can be more perfected in our love relationships with God and all others.

Today we are in the school of learning to love, tomorrow we go, hopefully, to heaven.

Today is the school, our imperfections come out when we mix with others. Will we learn to be like Jesus?

Genesis 1: 27

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

Messenger: Today is Valentine's Day we pray through St. Valentine's intercession and Father Carter and all the saints that we will love more like Jesus and do all we can to help promote the kingdom. The days here are so short. Soon we will be gone.

Please pray for the urgent intention and the other urgent intentions, Don and Don and Bob and Ann, Fr. Laurentin, Bishop Ed.

Please pray for funds. If you can ask someone to help us with the Priestly Newsletter ask them, please, or give John or me their name.

We really need funds. There is an answer.

Pray hard for the Newsletter, its immediate printing, all involved, spread the Blood of Jesus on everybody, cast the devil far away, consecrate their hearts, ask for a special coming of the Holy Spirit.

Pray to be one, united as special intercessors for the priests, the Church and the world - the children of God. Mary is Mother, we think of ourselves as a mother praying for the children she loves.

This is real, today we may be tired, but in our hearts His love keeps us warm and focused and feeling full to the brim. We have Jesus, our Spouse. We have Jesus in the Eucharist. We can be so one with God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit in our hearts. And every time we look into the face of another we see the face of one He loves.

Please pray with me hourly and pray for our family, all apostles and servants and handmaids. Pray for the Internet Message today and always.

We give our Valentine present to all the souls Jesus loves, we lay down our lives in the Morning Offering and pray for them. He loves each soul so much and we love Him and the souls He gave His life for.

Father Carter intercede for us. Our Lady of Clearwater intercede for us. All you angels and saints intercede for us. We pray Father in the Name of Your Son Jesus, in the Holy Spirit, in the pure and sinless heart of Mary, united to Jesus in the Mass we pray together as a body begging for grace for all our needs. We unite in all we do all day together as a body. Please grant grace, especially for funds and the urgent intention and the Newsletter and disk.

Please pray for B&M and pray that we can get Prayer Manuals printed - many of them to fill the requests from the priests. Think of it 75,000 priests getting the Prayer Manual after they read about Father's death. We could never promote prayer chapters like this. O City Set on a Hill, shine for the world. Churches all over the world consecrating their hearts and spreading the prayers. We must respond quickly to the requests, this could be in a month. Maybe the Newsletter would be printed February 23, 2001, what a great way to start the new millennium, February 23, 1999 was when we started the 6:20 daily novena and February 23, 1994 was the anniversary of the message "A city set on a hill will shine its light for the world". Oh please pray united. I love you so much.

                  A city set on a hill will shine to the rest
                      of the world.

                  All who are weary can go to Jesus and He will
                      give us rest.

Matthew 11: 28-30

The gentle mastery of Christ

‘Come to me, all you who labour and are overburdened, and I will give you rest. Shoulder my yoke and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. Yes, my yoke is easy and my burden light.’

                  What can we do to help promote the kingdom for our
                      Valentine, the Sacred Heart of Jesus?

                  Jesus is Our Sacred Heart, Praise Him. Pray for Father Mike.

                                 I love you. the Messenger

Messenger: There is a lot of
                      sick children at
                      Children's Hospital,
                      pray for them.

                  Thinking of this we know how
                      Mary feels about all her
                      children that are spiritually

Excerpt from Mother at Our Side, by Father Edward J. Carter S.J.


Mary And The Church

    "Mary is present in the Church as the Mother of Christ, and at the same time as that Mother whom Christ, in the mystery of the Redemption, gave to humanity in the person of the Apostle John. Thus, in her new motherhood in the Spirit, Mary embraces each and every one in the Church, and embraces each and every one through the Church. In this sense Mary, Mother of the Church, is also the Church's model. Indeed, as Paul VI hopes and asks the Church must draw 'from the Virgin Mother of God the most authentic form of perfect imitation of Christ.' ''(Pope John Paul II).27

    In this extremely meaningful passage from his encyclical, Redemptoris Mater (The Mother of the Redeemer), Pope John Paul II tells us that Mary is the Mother of Christ, that she is the Mother of the Church, that she is Mother of each of us in and through the Church, and that she is the Church's model. All of these truths are most intimately connected.

    Being Mother of Christ, Mary is also spiritual mother of His members whom Christ has formed into His body, the Church. She is also model of the Church as all good mothers are models for their children. Mary, the best of mothers, is the perfect exemplar, the perfect model, of what it means to be a follower of Christ. She guides the entire Church in greater assimilation to Christ.

    If we claim to love Mary, we must also love what she loves. Being Mother of the Church, Mary obviously loves her Church very deeply. As children of Mary, as followers of Christ, we also must deeply love the Church. Sad to say, there are many in today's Church who do not love her as they should.

    In loving the Church which is so dear to Christ and to Mary, let us work to further the good which presently exists in the Church, and labor to correct that which should not be. Indeed, there is much good in today's Church. In many members of the Church, there is a deep hunger for a more profound spirituality. There are lay people living exemplary lives, both the married and the single, as they strive to be a light in the market place. There are religious, priests, and bishops who are working with the Holy Father to make the Church more what she should be, in this, one of her most critical hours.

    Sorry to say, however, all is not well in the Church. There are deep divisions. Some of the divisions are caused by false teachings. Such teaching has given rise to apostasy and schism.

    Mary, however, has launched a counter attack, laboring for the renewal of the Church in many ways.

    It is up to each of us to do our share in building up the Church, this Church which is the mystical body of Christ. Through our Eucharistic participation, through our prayer and penance—through all our activity done in union with Christ and Mary—let us all strive to bring the Church closer to its model, Mary. Let us work so that the Church more and more reflects Christ as it comes closer to the one who so eminently reflects Christ, Mary herself. In her Immaculate Conception, her fullness of grace, her sinlessness, her bodily assumption into Heaven, Mary indeed is the perfectly and fully redeemed one. She is the one who has been perfectly assimilated to Christ. She is the model the Church more and more strives to imitate. The rest of the Church will never mirror forth Christ as brilliantly as does Mary. We can, however, approach more closely to this ideal who is Mary. Vatican II states:

    "In the most holy Virgin the Church has already reached that perfection whereby she exists without spot or wrinkle. Yet the followers of Christ still strive to increase in holiness by conquering sin. And so they raise their eyes to Mary who shines forth to the whole community of the elect as a model of the virtues. Devotedly meditating on her and contemplating her in the light of the Word made man, the Church with reverence enters more intimately into the supreme mystery of the Incarnation and becomes ever increasingly like her Spouse."28

    Mary loves her Church with a love whose depths we cannot fully fathom, so we should ask her to help us obtain the grace to increase our own love for the Church. Let us ask her, this dearest and most loving mother, to keep us close at her side as she labors for the renewal of the Church. She invites us to assist her.

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)


A rosary can be used to pray for healing. It is powerful to unite our prayers to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and pray through the powerful intercession of Our Lady of Clearwater.

In times of trouble, for special prayer, we can use our rosary and pray as follows.

A Rosary for Healing or for Someone with Cancer.

On one Hail Mary bead or as many as you desire, say: 

May God heal                     through the intercession of Our Lady of Clearwater in union with the Mass and all the Masses being celebrated around the world.

Pray the Hail Mary or Hail Mary's then pray this after the Hail Mary.

May the cancer be uprooted and thrown into the sea.

We believe with all our hearts.

After the Glory Be — pray the following petition.

May                     be healed through the intercession of Our Lady of Clearwater if it be the holy will of God.

Note: You can look at Mary on the image rosary while you pray this rosary.

Note: The above section can be printed out from a PDF file, and you can pray the rosary looking at the pictures.

    Rosary Books and the
    prayers my Son gives to you.

This is a gift we give you.
All the revelations are gifts given to you.
