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.

JULY 11, 1999

The Agony in the Garden

Sing in between verses:
    I Am Your Sacred Heart (refrain)
    Song From Jesus (refrain)

  1. Messenger: He was alone in the garden and those He loved had abandoned Him. They slept at that hour.
  2. He knew all that was to happen in the greatest detail.
  3. The utter pain within His Heart to want connection with His beloved ones and they were sleeping.
  4. When I know Jesus and Mary are telling me things and I try to tell others, many ignore me and do not understand the intensity and importance of the message.
  5. Then the consequence of the message follows while all fiddled on their flute and danced a dance of death.
  6. They piped up a tune, they fiddled on the flute and the walls fell down round them.
  7. There will be singing and dancing until that last hour. You know not when the Divine Reaper will come.
  8. Jesus: Oh the agony of it all. I spoke and they did not comprehend, nor did they even hear My voice.
  9. Hell is total isolation, no community and the souls scream a bitter scream of blood-curdling pain.
  10. Hail Mary...

The Scourging at the Pillar

  1. Jesus: Picture a tree on the edge of a waterway. See the rains beating down and the water being carried forcefully down stream. And they stood by the tree and they were washed by the pulling current of the tormenting rains.
  2. The battles of the evil one can be compared to the current of a rain of torrential nature that pulls so hard on the body that it is almost washed hard down stream.
  3. And you hold on so tight to that tree of life and the rains wash and wash you. They press on your body and the current comes with its force to wash you away.
  4. And there is no letting up, it seems. As the rains beat down to hurt the body with their force, the current pulls and the waves of water carry all the debris down stream.
  5. And when it seemed the night was almost over after a day of battle in which you withstood the trickery, the last curtain was raised.
  6. And the evil one moved in for the kill. The soldiers were worn down, their spirits low, their hearts sinking low in their chests. The vision of Christ at the pillar went through their feeble minds and hark the trickery of the evil one throws one last curve as he moves in for the kill.
  7.                                                             April 5, 2001

  8. The stage was set. The anger of the other had laid the trap. The tactics of the evil one would lay a successful path to trick the already weary-laden soul in that last attempt to wipe out the good works and attempts of endurance.
  9. And it happened. A trap is set by the devil, the ancient serpent. The devil has no mercy. His game is to stop the faithful servants DEAD ON THEIR PATH.
  10. Did you help lay a trap despite the warning? Did you lend the discouraging words?
  11. And the darkness never parted, for the night drew nigh carrying a message of anguish from the half-beaten soul.

The Crowning of Thorns

  1. Jesus: And now Satan had tripped the one walking sure-footed on the path. The person struggled to get up.
  2. It was the path of treachery.
  3. What spiraled was his evil snare, his confusing ways, of words not spoken, but assumed by the trickery of the night.
  4. There are hearts of love and tricks of one who aims to steal them all for hell.
  5. She was given a glimpse into that hollow hole: a night of hell, despair, isolation, hatred.
  6. Messenger: A crown of thorns, a heart dedicated to the service of the Lord, a love so great for Him, a thirsting for the Son of God in the Eucharist, the reception of Him in Holy Communion, the wanting of only God, a river full of life.
  7. The night was hell-like, the devil had pressed so hard, the current seemed to wash me away.
  8. I felt the weight of the cross, the thorns that pierced the head, the burning of the wounds on the body where the flesh was torn.
  9. I felt the cry come from within me of total isolation and pain.
  10. And in that reception of the Eucharist and participation in the Mass, there was agony and pain.

The Carrying of the Cross

  1. Messenger: The Mass is to unite all the hearts in oneness. At Mass I had this following experience due to the lack of oneness between the peoples of the earth and with God. It was an experience of the souls in hell that would never know any love, only total isolation, hatred, and misery. The reality of hell was so real. Where once I experienced the ecstasy of oneness with God and all others in acceptance and love, existing in Him, now I experienced separation, hatred and the blackness of a cold night that seemed would last forever.
  2. The weight of the cross, the experience of the weight of the sins of the world was so real to me.
  3. In the Mass I felt I knew the depth and vileness of each sin. I knew more about Christ carrying those ugly, vile, sins with Him to the cross.
  4. The desire to wipe out the evil swelled in my heart. I knew the evil of sins. I knew the evil in a deep degree.
  5. I felt an agony in knowing the vileness of evil and the depth of evil in sinful acts. I had deep insight into the glories of the Almighty God and I experienced the joy of knowing what it was to be existent in Him and His loving embrace.
  6. The Lady warned and they did not hear the warnings.
    It is a battle against Satan, the evil one.
    You must give your heart to God.
  7. Holy Thursday is the Mass of the Last Supper. 
    Jesus: I have allowed you to suffer on Thursday for those who have betrayed Me.
  8. Messenger: You must choose God.
    It is a battle, do you choose God or the evil one? Give your heart to Jesus and Mary, the New Adam and the New Eve.
  9. Jesus: I mounted the cross.
    I am the New Adam, My Mother stood below. She is the New Eve.
  10. Those who give their hearts to Us will be the victors.

The Crucifixion

  1. Messenger: The cross stands as the tree of life against a darkened sky and a darkened world.
  2. The sun glistens in the sky.
  3. Jesus: I am the Light of the World.
    The Light to the darkened night.
    I am God, the SAVIOR of the world.
  4. Choose life.
  5. Do you choose God and God’s side or the evil one, the ancient serpent, who aims to trick you with his vileness to steal your heart and soul forever and take you to the pits of hell?
  6. Song: Song From Jesus
  7. Song: I Am Your Sacred Heart (refrain)
  8. Hail Mary...
  9. Hail Mary...
  10. Hail Mary...

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.

    prayers my Son gives to you.
