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: People come and go in our lives.
Yesterday was a day of celebration for it was the
three year anniversary of the beginning of the
handmaids of the Good Shepherd.
The day was an important day to Jesus. The handmaids
and servants are his special spouse.
In this Movement God has called us all to live
that special spousal relationship with
Him in a most intimate way.
It is His Movement He began through the
message He gave to Father Carter.
Words of Jesus to Members of
Shepherds of Christ Associates:
"My beloved priest-companion, I intend to use the priestly newsletter, Shepherds of Christ, and the movement, Shepherds of Christ Associates, in a powerful way for the renewal of My Church and the world.
"I will use the newsletter and the chapters of Shepherds of Christ Associates as a powerful instrument for spreading devotion to My Heart and My Mother's Heart.
"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."
- Message from Jesus to Father Edward J. Carter, S.J., as
given on July 31, 1994,
feast of Saint Ignatius Loyola, Founder of the Society of Jesus (The Jesuits
Messenger: It is Jesus Who has called us.
It is Jesus that says that they hear His voice
and they follow Him.
He who enters through the gate is the shepherd of the flock; the gatekeeper lets him in, the sheep hear his voice, one by one he calls his own sheep and leads them out. When he has brought out all those that are his, he goes ahead of them, and the sheep follow because they know his voice.
The Newsletter is His instrument in which He
speaks to His Priest Shepherds about this
special intimate calling of being the spouse of
The Church is the bride of Christ.
We are the faithful members.
What does it mean to call us the bride of Christ
if we really don't live that spousal union
in a deep intimate way with Him?
I remember when I first received the Blue Books and
they were published, satan did all he could
to block them because he didn't want men
going to the Eucharist and staying after
Communion. I was persecuted and people
did all they could to discredit the Blue Books,
but the seeds of Jesus' letters fell in the
hearts of many despite the persecution we
suffered to deliver His burning letters of love.
Today we have been given a deep calling from Our
Lord to reach the priests with the
In the Newsletter Jesus speaks to the priests
about consecration and the relationship
of the souls with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit
and Mary. He speaks about our relationship
with the members of the Church and the world.
remember an experience I had May 25, 1995. It was
Ascension Thursday and it is published in the
Apostles' Manual, the internet and in the 17th
went to Mass at Father Carter's and I was given
deep insight into the Mystery of Christ. I knew
Him so intimately. I saw Him ascend into
heaven. He kept going upward. I knew Him
in a deep way. I knew Him as a
baby, in His death, in His resurrection
and ascension, in my relationship with
Him then in His Eucharistic Presence,
I was just so one with Christ.
reach for words to describe a mystical experience
I had. It is implanted on my soul not
in words, but in knowledge of Him, having deep
insight into the mystery of Christ,
of knowing Him in such an intimate way.
Excerpt from Response in Christ by Father Edward J. Carter, S.J.
Once again the reader is reminded that through baptism the Christian becomes incorporated into Christ and His Church. Confirmation perfects this incorporation. Although baptism incorporates us primarily into Christ's death and Resurrection, we again stress that it also unites us with Christ in all His mysteries. This is so because all Christ's mysteries are essentially one mystery, for none of them stands separately by itself. Consequently, one cannot be initiated into Christ's paschal mystery without simultaneously being incorporated into all of His mysteries.
The fact that all of Christ's various mysteries are contained in the total mystery of Christ enables the Christian to encounter the entire Christ in the liturgy. Mention of this fact brings us to our next point.
In baptism the Christian first encounters and relives the mystery of Christ. He thereby receives a new life. But this life must be nourished. The Christian must constantly re-encounter the mystery of Christ, and this he does chiefly through the eucharistic liturgy. Here the Christian is daily privileged to encounter Christ in the most intimate fashion. Here above all he exercises his priesthood and consequently grows in supernatural vitality. We use the word exercise purposely, since the liturgy is primarily an action, an exercise of the priestly office of Christ.
(End of excerpt from Response in Christ by Father Edward J. Carter, S.J.)
see the vision of Him ascending into heaven as
if it just happened. He was clothed in a red
garb, there was this light and white stuff
on both sides as He ascended upward and
in that moment I knew so much about the
incarnation, the passion, His presence with
me in the Eucharist, I knew about the Divine
Messenger: I ask you to pray for our apostles, servants
know so much and yet I cannot even write or get together
the writings of Blue Books 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 with
all the trials of everyday.
Father Carter is gone and he told me things about his writings
and his life that must be organized before I die
so that they will be preserved, but the devil wages
a big war trying to stop us so we attend to
other things and the great gifts God has given
in these writings are not attended to.
Money is a major issue for the Newsletter. I have been
writing personal letters to draw the people in,
into great oneness as a body - united in this
effort to help get the Newsletter into the hands
of the priest.
Our Lord wants the disc on grace in the hands of the
priest. The disc duplicater costs about $8,000.
We have circulated now about 600 discs which
we made on my computer in my house.
The primary focus of this Movement is to reach the
priests with the Newsletter. Our Lord speaks
through it to His priests. The discs and tapes on the
Newsletter are important to Our Lord.
If there isn't money for the Newsletter and Prayer
Manual, what do we do?
I beg in the daily messages.
Where there could be deeper insights and messages
from Our Lord, the precious space here is
spent in crying, literally crying for help to
do what God has asked us to do.
Think, if St. Paul was too busy tending to other
things some of his writings would not have been
It isn't my job to beg for money, but what do
we do now?
The Next newsletter Father Carter directed me to
write was given October 20, 2000, it is on
this bridal union and the Mass.
We are the brides of Christ.
Christ wants to speak to His priests and the world
about His bridal union with them.
In the powerful writing of Father Carter on the
Sacraments and the Mass in his book
Response in Christ he gives deep insights
into understanding sacrifice and our
participation in the Mass.
I want so much to share the gifts God has given
to Father Carter and to me and yet the devil
works through those who could help us to
I know when I die, it will be much more difficult
for anyone to sift through about 800 tapes
and writings and books of mine and Father Carter.
I have pleaded and begged for help with Funding for the
Newsletter and now we face another Newsletter
that is so important that it gets published,
on bridal union and the Mass.
A handmaid is one who lays down their life to serve God.
Mary is the most perfect handmaid.
A lot of things are not accomplished because the men
helping me want dominance and won't
really help me do what Our Lord and
Our Lady are asking for.
The devil is strong attacking people Jesus has called.
The devil is so strong and it is because of pride,
dominance, wanting acceptance, fear. People
give into the devil and stop doing what is
necessary to reach the earth with the writings.
God gives us so much grace when we go to the
tabernacle to fight off satan. People that are
apostles and do not go to the tabernacle
for their hour of adoration or skip daily Mass
very often become confused and do things that
may lead to them giving up their calling.
Jesus calls us to that hour every day spent alone
It is a bloody cry I give to you, it is a cry
In these days when we recall His Passion,
let us ask God how we can help to reach
the souls He gave His life for.
If you are reading this, you have been called
in a special way to help to bring about this
great era of peace and the Reign of the
The Movement exists to circulate the Priestly
Newsletter to priests and tapes and discs of the Newsletter.
Father said if we can't do the Newsletter
we aren't doing what God wants.
Are you in this to lay down your life for
Jesus to help us do what He is asking?
Father Carter was the instrument Jesus used to
write to His priests. Father Carter's writings are here and he said
we were to continue the Newsletter
I want to tell you a story of a sister. She
was in the sisters to please her dad. After
she was there many years her dad died
and then she no longer had a commitment to
Father Carter was given this mission by Jesus. Anyone
who worked to please Father Carter is like the
sister who stayed to please their dad.
It is Jesus' movement, Father Carter started it
because Jesus told him to do it.
The purpose is to help bring about the Reign
of His Sacred Heart and this great era of peace.
The movement is in the infancy stage.
Jesus said in a message yesterday "Anybody
that wanted to help Him would do it they
wouldn't cause distractions and trouble."
Jesus speaks: I give this message. The primary focus of
Movement Shepherds of Christ is My Priestly
Newsletter. I desire this to continue. Instead
of criticizing when I give a message, I wish you
would say - "how can it be accomplished?"
and work toward the goal.
Some look at all the people and then decide to
not follow the message.
The Message is given from Me. I want the
Priestly Newsletter to continue with the
writings I have given.
I wish the Newsletter 2001 #2 to be
written as was directed by Father Carter
on October 20, 2000.
The Church is My bride.
It is because of pride that many in authority do
not want to be under Me.
My Mother is the Mother of the Church.
It is from My Church that children are
brought forth as fruit for the Kingdom.
Where are your children?
Put aside your pride.
The Church is My bride.
I am the King.
I am the Chief Priest.
I am the Victim that was slain.
Many priests do not want to be under Mary
because she is a woman.
You are all under God.
Power comes from God.
When someone sees themselves as the head disconnected
from God they cut off the power
I am God.
Power Comes from Me.
Oh I am tired to write and tell you more.
You are attached to your worldly ways and many of you want
My Mother is the Mother of the Church and you are
Do you act like a little child of Mary?
Excerpt from Shepherds of Christ, Issue 1, 2001
Father Carters love of Our Lady is shown in his writings. He always saw himself as a little baby in her arms. In his room that last day was a holy card of Mary holding the Child Jesus, which was the only holy card we saw in his room. It looked as if he had held it. It looked used. In going through his personal holy cards, he had so many holy cards of Mary holding the Child Jesus.

Jesus speaks: Please help Me to continue My Newsletter
I write to My priests through it.
Please help Me.
I give a message to follow, some try to
block My message with their
pompous prideful way.
Look at My face, I gently ask you to help Me.
The writings I have given to Father Carter are to
help renew the Church and the world.
The Prayer Chapters are to be begun all over
Please help Me, do not fight Me.

the Father not pompous, hard men.

Pray to the Holy Spirit, my Spouse, to be
formed more and more into the image of Jesus.
The Church is a Pilgrim Church, you

not "arrived". You are being formed,
you are under Jesus.
Jesus is the Head of the Church.
You are under God!!
You have crowned your King with thorns.
Do you live as His bride and handmaid?
Do you live to make Him King or
have your own little kingdom
where you are king?

Your churches will be little cities of light

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.

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,
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.
