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 for 5 urgent intentions!



Jesus speaks: Walls, there can be walls created in all different ways.

I want oneness. I open My Heart to all and I ask you
     to come in.

I want My picture painted in My words that it will
     be like an open door in which men will come in 
     to rest.

(Messenger: He wants His written word to be as a
picture painted that will lead men into deep intimacy 
in His Heart.)

Messenger: On the 5th of February, I went through a deep experience
                          into insight into the hidden mysteries. I write as 
                          a "mystic" one who shares deep insight into the
                          hidden mysteries of God.
                     He implants on my soul in these experiences of 
                         deep intimacy insights into the hidden mysteries.
                      I cry out from the depth of my soul as I experience
                          Him in a deeper, deeper union.
                      It is a tremendous promise Our Lord made to Fr. Carter
                          in the 13th promise.

13th Promise

Jesus speaks: "I am calling many to become members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. To all of them I will give great blessings. I will use them as instruments to help bring about the triumph of the Immaculate Heart and the reign of My Sacred Heart. I will give great graces to the members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. I will call them to be deeply united to My Heart and to Mary's Heart as I lead them ever closer to My Father in the Holy Spirit."

- July 31, 1994

                   He promised to take us into a deeper love union in            
                        His Heart and the heart of His Mother.
                   There has been such discussion of periods and commas                
                        I see them as distractions as I write about
                        my mystical insights.    

                   With every writing Christ has promised ever since the
                        first Blue Book to open the door of His Heart
                        and reveal insights not given to the greatest        

                    I want to talk about some pictures
                         I saw in a book.
                    One picture had low furniture in the center of the room and the door opening
                         to the room was very big and all the people
                         were seated close to each other on one couch.

                     I received some of the books from Father Carter's
                    I would talk to Fr. Carter in the beginning
                         when he first began directing me and he
                         would say one word or a short
                         sentence and a whole mass of information
                         Jesus gave me would come into play.

                    Our Lord spoke through him sometimes with one word           
                         and a big door would open in which I understood
                         a whole mass of knowledge God had given me.

                    I wrote freely to him of my mystical insights and in my
                         greatest sufferings I would write of the blindness
                         that men just did not understand how it
                         truly was with God and I could not make anyone
                         understand the knowledge Jesus and Mary,
                         Father, and Holy Spirit had implanted on
                         my soul in these deep intimacies with Them.

                   When Mary appeared daily, I understood with such
                         depth her emotion and her desire to reach
                         her children, her little lost children, her desire
                         to get the rosary in the hands of her children,
                         the great gifts given from God in His grace to
                         open our closed hearts if we would only listen
                         to Him, but I could not do more than I was doing.
                         My pain was interior, my depth of understanding
                         I could not reveal of how He really is.

                    It is depth, it is insight into the hidden mysteries,
                         it is knowledge implanted on the soul: It is
                         ineffable as Father Carter would say
                         and it was.

                  But with the cross comes the resurrection.

                 With the suffering when we endure it according to
                        God's will comes greater life in Him and I 
                        write now as a "mystic" for I feel the depth of
                        understanding into the hidden mysteries He has
                        given to me is so far beyond this paper and pen
                        and yet it burns in my heart to write more and more
                        and to try to describe it.

                When a man is very blind, he does not see.
                       St. Paul did not see when he was persecuting the

                The vision I see and that given to Father Carter is
                      one in which there will be this great era
                      of oneness and peace.
                      One in which men will live in such love and
                      harmony with each other, helping each other
                      and living according to God's will.

              When we do not see, we do not see. It is the grace that
                      He gives that brings us into the light, but if
                      we fail to even recognize Him as Master
                      why should He give us such lights.   

              It is our prayers that men be led into the light
                     that helps bring down great grace so man     
                     will see as it says in the scriptures
                     "with the light of seven suns."

                Our Lord has given us these Shepherds of Christ prayers in the
                        prayer manual to help bring this about.
                He has promised great graces to those who pray them
                        to take them into His Heart.
                He has attached the graces to these prayers.

                In seeing Lucia's vision and the prayers
                        He has given to unite us more fully all day to 
                        the Mass in the morning offering, I see how
                        great grace will be released from Him
                        to help the children see what He wants them to 

                The insights into the hidden mysteries only comes when
                        He is acting on our souls with His grace. The
                        writings here He has given to help the soul
                        to know more about the mystery of God,
                        but it is with His writings and the grace granted
                        that a soul comprehends more and more insight
                        into the depth of the hidden mysteries.

                Mary wants us to pray the Rosary and meditate on  
                        the MYSTERIES. It makes perfect sense that
                        the Holy Spirit would work with Mary given the
                        greatest insights into the mysteries we meditate
                        on in the rosary.

                Mysteries, mysteries, mysteries, God is the ultimate
                        mystery, other and transcendent unless
                        He so chooses to reveal Himself to us.

                He reveals Himself to the merest children.
                Our hearts must be soft and supple ready
                        to accept God's lead.
                He is the initiator.
                He is the bridegroom.
                We are the bride.

                He usually would not reveal Himself to one who
                        is filled with anger and hatred.

                We must strive to create an atmosphere in which
                        the Divine Lover can act on our soul.

                Knowledge of God may be expressed in words,
                        but the depth comes from being united
                        to Him, it is far beyond a few words,
                        but the words are so powerful they
                        can bring us to deep joy or suffering,
                        tears of joy and jubilation, tears of
                        suffering and pain.

                God is other and transcendent.
                 He reveals Himself to us through His heavenly

                Jesus began His Blue Books with trying to create a
                        most intimate union between Him and 
                        the souls through Love Letters He wrote,
                        revealing to the soul the gifts given to 
                        them in the Holy Eucharist.

                God is infinite, He is beyond a few simple words.
                        The more I know the Father, I could write volumes
                        of what is it to know and love Him, but the
                        depth of my knowledge is in my soul, 
                        in my heart, I cannot touch it, but
                        I feel it in my heart, I cannot see it, but
                        I envision Him and know Him, I cannot
                        put the relationship I have in words.

                How do we put the relationship between us and the person
                        of the Trinity in words?
                How does a mother put into words the love of her son?
                How does a husband put into words the love of his wife?
                How do I write to you about insights into the Divine Mysteries?
                How do I write about relationship with the
                        Divine God?
                And yet Jesus has written these love letters
                        and writings to give great insight
                        into the Divine Mysteries.

                I just want to be there, in the mystical experience and
                        yet when I received the Mass Book, He took me to 
                        the heights, then said "Now write about it, 
                        it is the gift I give the world."

                And He took me to the highest mountain and when
                        I felt I could not physically move to write
                        to you, He took the pen in my hand and 
                        wrote through my hand with such grace it felt as if the
                        pen danced across the paper.

                Oh my, if we could open our eyes and drop the
                        scales from them.
                If we could even see the walls that we create.

                I want to describe what I saw January 20, 1996
                        when He revealed the oneness at Mass.
                        I saw stiff-necked people, all disconnected, 
                        like straight pillars and tears filled me for I experienced
                        the fire of His love deep within my heart and what
                        He wanted at the Mass and I can still cry today 
                        from it.

                I know "stiff-necked". I know oneness.

                Now look at the sky scrapers of New York City
                        so tall and straight.

                Now look at the soft, low couch of the living
                        room, all are gathered on one couch
                        sitting together.

                Our mission is oneness.
                I was explaining the ecstasy I received February 5, 2001
                        the day I received these pictures at the
                        rosary in Florida. 

February 5, 2001

February 5, 2001
(See Jesus' face - bottom left panels)

                I have tremendous help in putting out this message
                        to you.

                Our Lord said several months ago He would paint
                        a picture with the message.
                 I was given insight into the importance of the
                        presentation on the page and how He desired
                        to move the hearts to love and understanding.

              He gave great grace to those putting on the message
                        and helping to type and put it together
                        so we can paint the picture He wishes
                        to give.

                He speaks to me, but so much is given that is not
                        in words.

                Every message is the opening of a door into the
                        Heart of Christ.
                He tells us about Himself and what He wants.
                He gives us insights into our struggles,
                        how Satan works in our lives, about
                        our own imperfections.

                I ask you to think of walls.
                Since we bought the Virgin Mary building we can 
                remove all the cubicals inside. (We have a big
                loan on the building, but we have the loan so we are grateful)

                Steve and Sheila spent two weeks in Florida removing
                        the cubicals so we can have a bigger prayer
                        area and a bigger area for instruction.

                Now we can pray in a large group behind Mary's
                        image as Jesus and Mary want.

                It is a big open area.

                Think of men with leather furniture and cubicals,
                        adding machines, computers, hard disks,
                        walls for each man to be separate.

                Think of an open area, with 
                        a place to worship behind Mary's image.

                Think about walls.
                Think of how we open ourselves up.
                Think of how we put walls around ourselves.
                Think of how someone opens a door with a gentle
                        loving remark and another closes the door
                        in their face, by their response.
                Some people were never permitted to mix in the 
                        family because of alcoholism and they felt
                        only safe when they were by themselves.

                Today they create walls all around them every
                        place they go because they feel
                        unsafe around people.

                The 80 year old man can still be building his
                        wall so he can isolate and be safe.
                This is not to say that we are never to be alone or
                        that we need periods of silence to connect
                        and be with God.

             I continue.
                A person can begin a fight in a car because
                        they do not feel comfortable in a small
                        space with others in an intimate way.
                Another person may come back with a remark
                        that makes them tower over the other or a 
                        remark that is nasty to end the communication
                        and conversation.

                Think of the picture of the open door.

                A person can come and close the door in another's face.

                Envision two pictures.

                See one picture with tall buildings,
                         another picture with low couches, and
                         a big beautiful door to get in.

                My job is to deliver messages about oneness.

                Since we have prayed the prayers, the
                        Shepherds of Christ Prayers, Jesus
                        says He has granted great graces
                        to lead the Church and the world
                        into oneness.

                Jesus says He has answered our prayers.

                He gives these prayers the Shepherd of Christ Prayer Manual
                        to help bring about the Reign of 
                        His Sacred Heart.

                If He so chooses to give great graces
                        for recitation of these prayers
                        do you see how it could help
                        to change the face of the earth if 
                        we get them in the hands of 75,000
                        priests; many who love Father Carter
                        and the Sacred Heart and believe
                        in Father Carter as a spiritual 
                        father to them.

                So much money is needed to answer the
                        call of the priests that will very 
                        shortly get the Newsletter with 
                        the Prayer Manual.

                Prayer Manuals are about 10 cents a piece, maybe
                        a little more.

                Do you want to help to change the face of the
                        Please help us print this Priestly
                        Newsletter and Prayer Manuals to
                        begin prayer chapters praying
                        for the priests, the Church and the world.

                Think of 75,000 priests getting the
                        prayer manual and many beginning
                        prayer chapters in churches.

                Jesus promised to turn the churches
                        into little cities of light.

                Every time Jesus gives a writing He opens the
                        door of His Heart.

                Pray for all of us on the Internet team
                        to be able to paint the picture
                        of the gift He wants to give
                        daily to you.

                All are willing, your prayers will help us.
                Think about walls and how we create walls.
                Ask for the grace to help lead the world into oneness.
                Ask for grace to help us to have better relationships modeled
                        after the Trinity.

                The Trinity is the most perfect community.

                Jesus help us to open the door of our hearts to you.

                Jesus help us to open up the door of our hearts
                        to each other and to grow in love
                        and oneness according to the
                        Father's will.

                I must say one more thing about the message.
                On that day February 5, 2001 I was still doing
                        the message at 1:30 on February 6, 2001
                        when I saw lots of punctuation
                        and capitals added.

                To me Mary opened a door and I heard her sweet
                        gentle voice speak.

                She wants us on the Internet to open the door to her

                Lots of tall buildings in one area are not conducive to

                A soft chair with low backs, or a couch help to create intimacy.

                When you read His word there should not
                        be any more capitalization or commas,
                        quotes etc. than are necessary.

                Mary opens a door into the depth of her
                        Motherly heart and she speaks.

                She wants an intimate union
                        with the other. She wants
                        connection in the heart.
                She doesn't want a text book

                We pray that you will read the books
                        and your hearts will experience
                        deep intimacy with 
                        Jesus and Mary.
                That you will have a deep connection
                        with Them in your heart.

                Oneness, there are so many things we say and
                        do that create blocks and walls, in the
                        end we need to work together to promote His
                        kingdom, do His will and learn to be
                        more perfected in our ways of loving, so for
                        all eternity we can enjoy a deeper love
                        union with God because we truly
                        matured in our loving relationships 
                        with Him and others here below.

                We are here to love. We are here to grow
                        in our ways of loving. 

February 18, 2001 - Second Message

Messenger: From Father Carter's book
                          Response to God's Love
we see so much about our state
                          of becoming.

                    These words were written through our

Jesus speaks:  My daughter, they (the writings of Father Carter)
                                 were written by Me
                                to give deep insight into the 
                                Divine Mysteries. They are indeed

Excerpt from Response to God's Love by Father Carter



                                                         Our incorporation into the mystery of Christ at baptism initiates us into a life that God intends to develop into full maturity. Our life in Christ as guided by the Spirit is not a static given, a life that is received in baptism and then simply clung to. It is not a life that we are merely to avoid losing through serious sin. Rather, it is our task to develop this life through a process of evolutionary growth. God has truly placed us in a situation of becoming. Our personal uniqueness is meant to gradually unfold into its full stature in Christ as we increasingly fulfill God's will in deepening faith, hope, and love.

       For each individual, the process of becoming is intertwined with God's plan of growth for all creation. To understand the individual Christian's situation as one of process, of becoming, it is obviously helpful, then, to realize that he or she is part of a larger picture of becoming. Consequently, let us consider three aspects—the world, the Church, and the individual Christian—all of which are in a state of becoming.

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.

December 17, 2000, Mary speaks:

Help me to circulate my red and blue
    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.
My Son is the Light of the World.
He is Jesus born in a stable.
Will you help me?
He is the Light of the World. Help me, help me
    reach my children of the world.
