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

COME ON THE 5TH.  Great Graces are promised from Jesus on the 5th.

Messenger: Please pray for an urgent intention, spread the blood of Jesus on them, consecrate their hearts, cast the devil far from them, and ask for a special outpouring of the Holy Spirit.

Messenger: A second urgent intention is to pray for the mailing of the newsletter and all involved.  Please pray hourly if possible.

Messenger:       When I talked to you, it was like talking
                        to Jesus. It made my heart so happy to be
                        with you today. His love comes forth
                        from your heart and I love you, you are
                        like Him.

                            Oh God, I love You so much. Thank You
                        for giving us each other to love.

                            Today is a gift from Him. Thank
                        you for all you have given to me.


Messenger:        I long for my true home in heaven.
                        I am not attached to the things of this earth,
                        for it is my heavenly reward that is my desire.
                        I see my life as so short compared to eternity
                        and yet my life here is that of joy for to have
                        Him here is a joy to my heart.

                            I see His face in my fellow men and I
                        long with all my heart and my soul to reach
                        them with the message of His love.

                            More and more my life is lived with a deep
                        connection to the world above as I journey
                        here on this earth below. I am united to the
                        angels and saints and I am so one with my
                        God, I feel united with the souls in purgatory. 

                            The depth of what I know I can never adequately
                        express and I beg to write it correctly for

Jesus speaks:     My beloved souls, you can never
                         measure My love for you. It is immeasurable.   
                        Oh sweet souls, how tenderly I do indeed love
                        thee and am so happy when you lavishly
                        pour your love out to Me. I love you to 
                        want Me and call Me your Sweet Heart and
                        cry from deep within for greater union
                        with Me.

Messenger:        And I see the lights of heaven, I
                        know that heavenly embrace, I know love
                        from the saints beyond and acceptance.
                        I know God, more and more He reveals Himself
                        to me. Insight I am given into the Divine
                        Mysteries, deeper knowledge of what transpires
                        at Mass and so little I feel I can adequately

                            Oh God is so good and I see His reflection
                        in my brothers and sisters and I love them so
                        deeply. Each one created so uniquely by the hand
                        of God with such beauty (that I cannot even
                        compare them.) Every flower is so uniquely
                        beautiful, every blade of grass and butterfly,
                        the stars shine so brightly, every one with
                        its own beauty and the sun seems as if it
                        governs the vast sky.

                            (Of Speaking of Mary)
                            Blue is the color of her mantle.
                            Blue is the color of so many of her gowns,
                            Blue He used for the sky and the ocean,
                            It is calm and soft and beautiful.
                            The ocean looks like her mantle laid
                                on the earth.

                            And sometimes it shines like a diamond
                                studded tapestry of the most
                                beauteous sight as the sun lit
                                water dances a dance of lilting

                        Who dare even use words to describe such an
                             awesome site?

                        Then why should I think I could even scarcely
                            explain in words the Rapture of the
                            Divine God as He embraces my thirsty

                        No words to describe how I saw Mary.

                        No words to describe the visions of March 26, 1996
                            and those that followed.

                        No words to describe the transfigured Lord.

                        No words to describe Him hanging at the point
                            of death on the cross.

                        No words to write of the beauty of the Mass,

                        No words to express the depth of my experience
                            at the consecration,

                        But He gives me light to tell you here of
                            such infinite glories.

                        Oh God of Goodness and light ----

                        I reached out and You were there ---

                        In the yellow and white daisy I saw the work of
                            the Creator,

                        In the star studded sky, I saw the beauty of His hand,
                        I watched the sun-lit day and the little dancing
                            reflections on the water, first it looked
                            like a sea of glass then it began to glisten,
                            to dance, first golden from the intense
                            light of the sun on the water and then
                            it looked like little arches, silver
                            lined and dancing to a silent rhythm,
                            I could almost hear the music as it
                            danced, but I barely heard the gentle
                            breeze as it blew across the water.

                    Oh do we see the wind? We hardly know it
                            is there until an old dried autumn
                            leaf may quickly move across the  
                            pavement and then we hear the
                            gentle scraping and almost see 
                            the gentle breeze, but we never really
                            see anything but the scurrying little old leaf
                            quickly move again.

                    Why is the wind so hidden, it seems?

                    Why is the air so transparent?

                    Why are we well one day and as in Father Carter's
                            case, writing a 20 page Newsletter on the
                            spiritual life, a summary of his life's
                            work in June, 6 months later, the door
                            closes and his life here on this earth ends.

                    Why? Why? Why?

                    A thought rushes through our head and
                    yet our eyes see the beauty of the star-lit sky
                            and we can't ever explain it.

                    We see the beauty of the autumn leaves on one tree,
                            every leaf seems to stretch out as if to
                            be seen so distinctly against the deep blue
                            of the autumn sky and yet in the
                            months that follow the once gorgeous
                            leaves become old leaves, stepped on
                            by the bouncing little feet of children at play,
                    and they are but fragments, little pieces of dried
                            leaves broken, some almost like a

                    First a leaf of green, then gold and then trodden
                            on by the children at play and then almost
                            like dust.

                    What is lent? It is a time for renewal. A time 
                            for dying to the self that is not likened to
                            Him so we can rise to be more like Him
                            in the joyful, glorious days of Easter and
                            then as we go through the liturgical year,
                            we celebrate and I mean celebrate such
                            glorious days of the Easter Season
                            and Ascension Thursday and Pentecost,
                            Trinity Sunday, the Feast of the Precious
                            Body and Blood, and the Feast of the
                            Sacred Heart and Immaculate Heart.

                    I AM EXCITED.

                    It isn't what I (alone) do in lent, it's how my
                            beautiful Spouse, Jesus acts on
                    me. If I am soft and supple He can act better
                    as I surrender and let Him lead.

                        The person that concentrates all of lent
                    giving up cookies and doesn't surrender to
                    the Divine Bridegroom acting on their soul
                    in this powerful season misses some things
                    that are wonderful, far more than I can

                    Oh I see the Mantle of Mary drape the skies
                        and I see her drop her mantle to the
                        water below.

                    It is as a warm fuzzy blanket of blue covers
                        us to remind us of her undaunted love as
                        our loving Mother, the Mother of love,

                    And they say of us ---

                    "Is this the child of Mary?"

                    We can all answer, yes, we are and she is more
                        loving than the most loving earthly mother.

                    Mary spread a blanket of snow to cover our
                    scared little hearts.

Image over Altar in China, Indiana

January 2, 1999

Mary speaks: I am Our Lady of Snows. I come to cover the earth with a soft white blanket of my love.

I come to bring peace to the earth. I tell you to let go of the anxiety in your heart and experience my peace and His love.

I am your heavenly Mother. I come to hold you and caress you and take you to my Immaculate Heart.

Messenger: Oh beautiful field flowers of yellow, against
                            the green grass of the spring day.

                     See it Blue skies above a field of yellow
                            wild flowers surrounded by the green of
                            the tall grass, a beautiful medley
                            of God's little gifts so pleasing to the
                            naked eye.

                     And yet we just hardly see it at all sometimes.

                     A fresh new day with a deep blue sky and
                            the refreshing smell of the air and
                            the beauty of the field flowers decorating
                            the earth below.

                    At some point as I look in the distance, the
                            flowers seem to touch the sky, as if
                            to kiss them ado and show the beauty of
                            God's earth as the perfect beautiful mixture
                            of colors created by God's touch in such
                            a crispness of color. Perfect color, not
                            man made, the perfect hue of beauteous
                            color, The perfect match, God made those
                            beautiful colors.

                    No man can ever paint the real color of snow,
                    No man with man-made paints can match it, 
                            nor the yellow rays from the sun, the
                            blue of the ocean, the yellow of the
                            field flower.

                    God's color is perfect and man can never and I
                            mean never duplicate it exactly.

                    Oh Glorious God, I am sorry for offending
                            you. Help us. I am Rita,
                                    I cry to thee, I love you, Truly.

                    No one is a match for the Divine God,

                    (Talking of Mary)
                    How to describe her, Mother Mary when she
                    appeared ---

                    I can't,

                    but you see her ever changing in the image
                            in Florida on the building and
                            no one could paint it with the
                            (naked) eye for we just don't
                            see so good.

                    How to paint with clearest beauty the
                            yellow wild flower against the blue
                            sky and show the mixture of that
                            beautiful grass that grows between.

                    Life is so real.

                    I am here today. Fr. Carter died just like

                    He was here then gone. We need God.

                    (Speaking of Mary's apparitions to Me)
                    What is so wonderful - when she appeared and
                        then left she was gone and all I saw
                        was things around me.

                    Mary appears on the building for us to study and see
                            and nobody could paint that of this
                            beauty of color created by God.

                    See all of you that are so skeptical.

                    Our Lord asked Harold Kellner to paint Mary
                            on the building ---

                    You cannot produce mystical colors with
                            man-made paints.

                    The color of Mary on the building match the things of God.

                    There is no painted picture of snow capped
                            mountains that actually look exactly
                            like the mountains and the snow.

                    There is no white man-made paint that matches
                            the white of a mystical vision.

                    No color like the real blue of the sky.

                    When I see a vision of the things God shows 
                            me there is constant motion. The colors are changing. 
                            Look at the sky, see how it changes, 
                            look at the snow capped mountain, 
                            look at the trees sway in the wind.

                    The image of Mary changes constantly and
                            no paint brush with man made paints
                            could paint Mary accurately.

                    She is painted by the hand of God, she is
                            truly clothed with the sun.

                    No artist can use man-made paints and
                            actually paint the color the sun is.

                    Mary is clothed by God in mystical color,
                            her appearance during a vision to me is
                            ever changing and of mystical beauty.

Jesus speaks: You fools! Mary is authentically
                           painted by the hand of God.
                          Get off your high horses and
                          worship God Who gives you great
                          gifts. Mary is a sign for you.
                          She comes to lead you to your

                         "Don't make light of it",

                         "It is a gift"

Messenger: I looked at the emerald color of the image
                    of Mary, the day after January 5.

                    Fr. Mike and I went to the image January 6
                    and she was green.

                    I never saw her that way.

                    She was golden rainbow at night and
                        green the next day.

              Revelation 4: 3

and the One sitting there looked like a diamond and a ruby. There was a rainbow encircling the throne, and this looked like an emerald.  

January 5, 2001 January 6, 2001

Messenger: On the day of Father Carter's death
                      Mary was so blue.

Last month during the prayer service at 6:20
    on February 5, I saw all kinds of colors.

Early Evening Later Later Finally Jesus' Face
blue rainbow
rainbow gold+lighted

Messenger: All in one prayer service no flash.

  I could never paint or describe Mary when
    she appeared. No colors I have seen
    in mystical visions could be duplicated.
    Colors are not exactly like our colors,
    There is something else there besides color,
    it is transparent, sometimes it is like a mirror-
    type material, it is real, it is reality
    at its peak beyond that which I see,
    with texture and dimension that is
    infinite, it is soft, but distinctive, it
    is transparent, but visible, it is
    beyond any words I can use to describe it,
    but begs to be described.

    The colors of Mary on the building are
like this. What a gift God gives us in
the visible mystical apparition.

The 5ths have been like this for me, a medley of beautiful
  apparitions. At first from July 5, 1998 - December 17, 1999 the
  glass was black on the building at night after dark when we did the 6:20 prayers- 

I love you,

That is why the face of Jesus February 5, 2001
    is so awesome.

Messenger: Do you know where Jesus showed his

On the shroud - again on cloth

Our Lady of Guadalupe is on cloth

Mary's image is on glass
Jesus' image is on glass and a fixed picture of
    Jesus on the photo.

Messenger: Once some one had a big picture of Mary
                        that somebody painted of a vision
                        of Mary.

Our Lord did not want this gigantic
    picture of Mary by the altar in our
    Church in China (Indiana).

The colors were hard and bold, I
    never saw any mystical visions
    anything like that.

It offended me.
I see Mary how she really is.
How can you describe it?

I know about the lights of heaven.

Having a vision like Mary on the building 
    is a gift.

The lights and colors are like visions
    and they are ever changing, the
    colors cannot be compared to
    man-made colors.

Pictures on a camera can duplicate her
    a lot.

In the beginning Our Lord never wanted
    pictures other than Mary passed
    out on the site.
    Now I see why.
    I love you

We can't touch love and yet it is so
    real to us. We can't see love and
    yet our hearts can BURN with love.




          I am but a little speck on this earth,
                 but with His might He can use me
                 to spread the devotion to His
                 Most Sacred Heart.

          Oh dear and precious Heart of Jesus
                 I give myself as completely as
                 possible to Thee so you will use
                 me to spread the devotion to the
                 ends of the earth for Your most
                 precious Heart.

          I am Rita your precious soul.

          Use me to help to spread this burning
                 devotion to the souls of this earth.

          I am yours, take me, use me as you

          I surrender myself to you.

          It is your might behind me, your power
                 that sends me. I am an Apostle of
                 the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I give
                 myself as completely as possible to

          Sacred Heart of Jesus I place my
                 trust in Thee.

          Father hear us please. We beg through
                the  intercession of Father Carter
                and Our Lady of Clearwater that 
                prayer chapters are started all over
                the world and the Priestly Newsletter
                gets there immediately with the
                Prayer Manual.

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 Note from the President of Shepherds of Christ:

If you are devoted to Our Lady's rosary, we need your help! A member of our ministry is very devoted to Our Blessed Mother and he is helping to teach us how to grow our volunteer rosary makers. He estimates that we will need approximately $37,000 this year for beads alone! This translates into 22,339,500 rosary beads (yes, 22 million beads) assembled by volunteers into 378 thousand rosaries. The biggest users of our rosaries are the Catholic schools, who requested more than 100,000 rosaries last year.

Can you help us? I appeal to you for funds, whether large or small. We give because we love God, we love our Blessed Mother, and we love souls. We will accept gifts in many forms, besides cash or check donations, we can receive gifts directly in the form of stocks or property. These gifts can offer large tax advantages to the donor and increase the monetary value of the gift to us. Also if you can help assemble rosaries we need your help! If you can help us in anyway, please call or write us. God Bless!

I love you,
John Weickert


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:

    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 the Light of the World. Help me, help me
