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!


Messenger: Our Lord has asked us to pray for a special priest and three other special priests and His designated priests.

                      Please pray for the priestly newsletter and for the intentions on the prayer list at the end of the message.

Messenger: Our Lord told me to put this on the internet first today.

Father Carter told me that lack of humility is a major block to advancing in the spiritual life.

From the newsletter 2000 Issue 3


Humility is a very important virtue given to us for the spiritual journey.

Humility is both the realization of what we are as creatures of God and the concrete implementation of this realization in our Christian lives. Humility, therefore, is not an exercise in self-depreciation; it is not telling yourself that you are no good, that you really have nothing of any significance to contribute to the service of God. Humility is based on truth. It is compatible with the recognition that God has given a person certain gifts, even great gifts, of nature and grace. If we do not recognize our God-given gifts, we do not thank God for them as we should, nor properly develop these gifts according to His will. God wants us not only to recognize the good that is in us, but also to realize the source of this goodness. Although we have a responsibility to cooperate with His graces, God is the One Who is chiefly responsible for what we are. If one person has advanced to a level in the Christian life that is beyond the level of another, it is ultimately because God has given that person greater graces.

If humility is based on truth and, consequently, allows us to properly recognize our gifts, it also necessitates that we admit to the evil within us, which is also part of the truth and must be acted upon. Humility not only bids us to admit that there is evil in us, but also tells us that, as creatures of God, we should conform to His will and work against this evil side of our persons. In summary, humility allows us to properly evaluate both the good and evil within ourselves.

Here is a quotation from St. Paul which helps us to preserve, and grow in, humility: Who made you so important? What have you got that was not given to you? And if it was given to you, why are you boasting as though it were your own? (1 Cor 4:7).

And in the Letter of James we read: Humble yourselves before the Lord and he will lift you up. (Jm 4:10)

Luke 1: 46-56

The Magnificat

  And Mary said:

    My soul proclaims
        the greatness of the Lord
    and my spirit rejoices
        in God my Saviour;
    because he has looked upon
        the humiliation of his servant.
    Yes, from now onwards
        all generations will call me blessed,
    for the Almighty
        has done great things for me.
    Holy is his name,
    and his faithful love extends age after age
        to those who fear him.
    He has used the power of his arm,
    he has routed the arrogant of heart.
    He has pulled down princes
        from their thrones
            and raised high the lowly.
    He has filled the starving with good things,
        sent the rich away empty.
    He has come to the help
        of Israel his servant,
            mindful of his faithful love
    —according to the promise
        he made to our ancestors—
    of his mercy to Abraham
        and to his descendants for ever.

    Mary stayed with her some three months and then went home.

Messenger: This message was received in a live rosary January 5, 2001 and was transcribed from a tape.

Excerpt from the January 5, 2001 rosary  

Jesus speaks: My children, I am your beloved Savior and I love you so.  
            I want you to come to the depth of My Heart.  
            I want you to love Me.  
            I want you to spend time with Me.  
            I want to have a loving relationship with you, and you treat Me so coldly.  
            I want your love.  
            I speak to you, the ones that are gathered here beneath the image of My Mother.  
            For it is for your soul that I long for.
            I long for you to come.  
            Do not look around, I am speaking to you.  
            I want that time alone, but you try to please everyone else and you think about everyone else so many times. And that is good, but when you do not have any time for Me, personal time, to just come and be with Me in an intimate embrace, I long for you.
            I am telling you now, I want this time every day, time that you set aside just to be with Me, quiet in your heart.  
            I love you so.  
            It is in those quiet moments that I will implant knowledge of Myself upon your soul and that you will know more the will of the Father for you.  
            It is in those moments that you will feel peace and serenity and yet you do not take them.
            In the letters that you write to Me, the letters will help you express more the love in your heart and help you to be a loving person more in your lives.  
            It's little things.  
            It's writing a letter and reading the Blue Book and hearing Me speak to you. And it takes time everyday, but it will change your life.  
            And I tell you this and you do not hear Me, for you think your time is so valuable and yet I can do so much in a split second that you cannot do.  
            And you fumble around and look and wonder and you try to accomplish things and you carry the load on your back all by yourself and I am right there ready to help you if you ask for My grace.  
            Or do you even realize that you are still learning?  
            So many think they know it all and they get upset if I try to tell them anything.  
            For they want to just know. And how would you know, for you are a human person and I am the Divine God.  
            God created you and yet the creature is so brazen in their ways. They think they do not need the Creator.

            "How silly," I say. But if I said to you, "tc tc," (He made a noise we cannot write) would you even listen?  
            I say to you now, "I am the Divine God and I want a loving relationship with you. I want your time. And the rest of the time will work so much better for you."  
            But you go it alone most of the day, and you kid yourself and you think you are uniting to Me.  
            That intimate time is so valuable to your life.  
            I give you My intimate letters of love in God's Blue Book to help you stay focused on the things that are above and you stay in that earthy realm and you get caught up in so many silly things and one word from your God in a simple opening of the book could help change the course of events.  
            Listen to Me. I speak to you. I am the Divine God.

Messenger: Here is how Mary looked when Jesus
                     delivered this message during January
                     5, 2001 rosary.

                 On December 29, 2000 we were given
                     the word we were able to get the loan
                     for the Virgin Mary building.

                 Here are pictures of the building.

                 The Almighty God chose this building on
                     U.S. 19N. and Drew Street in
                     Clearwater, Florida to allow the Virgin
                     Mary to appear on the building.

Messenger: Think how special it is that God chose
                     this place on the earth.

                 God chose this building in Clearwater,

                 On February 10, 1997 not even a month
                     before the Falmouth Flood I received
                     a very strong message from God the

                 This was before the rosary of February
                     13, 1997.

                 There were so many people there on
                     February 13, 1997 and Father Carter
                     said a Mass.

                 The Father told me how important this
                     day was to the Shepherds of Christ
                     and to the completion of the Fatima
                     mission culminating in the Reign of the
                     Sacred Heart. He said the greatest
                     graces would be released to help
                     bring about the Reign of Jesus' Sacred

                 Here is an excerpt from that message.

February 10, 1997 - Message from God the Father:

...Nowhere in human history of man have I revealed and given such gifts as I have given to you in your movement (Shepherds of Christ). The plot is the same as the plot at the Holy Spirit Center and the Falmouth Farm. I am displeased, I am angered to address this issue any further. I am the Father. I have spoken. ...Satan has created confusion because of the importance of the 13th (prayer meetings) and the completion of the Fatima Message. Nowhere, have I been so greatly offended, when I have given such gifts which ended in the Falmouth Farm being a (spiritual) disaster ...many souls are being lost.

(End of February 10, 1997 message)

Messenger: On March 3, 1997 the city of Falmouth
                     was under water.

Messenger: The waters of Falmouth were polluted


Excerpt from Response to God's Love, by Father Edward J. Carter, S.J., pg. 1-2

       ...Radically, God is completely other and transcendent, hidden from man in his inner life, unless he chooses to reveal himself. Let us briefly look at this inner life of God.

       The Father, in a perfect act of self-expression, in a perfect act of knowing, generates his son. The Son, the Word, is, then, the immanent expression of God's fullness, the reflection of the Father. Likewise, from all eternity, the Father and the Son bring forth the Holy Spirit in a perfect act of loving.

       At the destined moment in human history, God's self-expression, the Word, immersed himself into man's world. God's inner self-expression now had also become God's outer self-expression. Consequently, the mystery of God becomes the mystery of Christ. In Christ, God tells us about himself, about his inner life, about his plan of creation and redemption. He tells us how Father, Son, and Holy Spirit desire to dwell within us in the most intimate fashion, how they wish to share with us their own life through grace. All this he has accomplished and does accomplish through Christ. St. Paul tells us: "I became a minister of this Church through the commission God gave me to preach among you his word in its fullness, that mystery hidden from ages and generations past but now revealed to his holy ones. God has willed to make known to them the glory beyond price which this mystery brings to the Gentiles—the mystery of Christ in you, your hope of glory. This is the Christ we proclaim while we admonish all men and teach them in the full measure of wisdom, hoping to make every man complete in Christ" (Col 1:25-28).

Messenger: Here is the front side picture of the
                     building where Mary appeared, look
                     at the triangle in front, it reminds me
                     of the Trinity.

Messenger: Here is the picture at the end of the night
                     February 5, 2001.

                 Mary was gold and copper colored like
                     jewelry. It is so hard for me to explain
                     because the color is mystical, not like
                     anything I have seen on this earth.

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 for Healing or for Someone with Cancer.

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

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

We believe with all our hearts.

After the Glory Be — pray the following petition.
