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.

St. Ignatius





February 5, 2004 message continues

Messenger:         I want to emphasize that the retreat starts
                        on February 10, 2004 in the evening.

                            The retreat in China will begin with the
                        6:20 prayers on Tuesday night.

                            Silence is then observed until the end of
                        the retreat except for special discussion or
                        participating in the prayers.

                            Those coming to the retreat on February 11, 2004
                        should be prepared and should have begun
                        the retreat the night of February 10, 2004 as the
                        others have in China.

                            Tuesday night readings should include
                                The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius
                                    by Louis J. Puhl, S.J.

                                Introductory Observations pp. 1-10

                                    pp. 141-150 
                                    numbers  313-336

                            It is essential these readings are done
                                slowly before the meeting on February 11, 2004

                            The following meditations are to be made.
                                February 10, 2004 before bed
                                meditate for 30 minutes on
                                #23  p. 12

                                FIRST PRINCIPLE AND FOUNDATION


                        February 11, 2004

                            All these meditations should begin with the following

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.



February 5, 2004 message continues


Messenger:     The retreat will begin with a talk in
                            the Church on February 11, 2004 at 9:00.
                            All there should have eaten breakfast
                            before this time.


                        Exposed Adoration will begin after Mass at 12:00,
                            noon on February 11, 2004


                        Others than the retreatants are asked to do the adoration
                            after 12AM
                            so the retreatants can get a good nights sleep.


                        This is not the time for the retreatants to go on a diet. You
                            will need your strength and the proper rest.


                        This is a special Shepherds of Christ
                            St. Ignatius retreat. It is not the same
                            as other retreats on the Spiritual Exercises
                            although we use the book for some of
                            the retreat.


                        These traditional retreats on the Spiritual Exercises
                            are very important retreats.


                        Our method here is to employ the principles
                            of Spiritual Exercises and the basic
                            principles of the Shepherds of Christ meditations to
                            lead to a deeper love union with God
                            and to help strengthen the vocation of
                            servants, handmaids, apostles, associates,
                            prayer apostles, Apostles of the Eucharistic
                            Heart, priests who are members of the
                            Shepherds of Christ Movement and called to
                            this vocation.


                        This retreat centers around the four sets of
                            mysteries of the rosary.


                            February 11  Joyful Mysteries
                            February 12  Mysteries of Light
                            February 13  Sorrowful Mysteries
                            February 14  Glorious Mysteries of the Rosary
