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.

April 27, 2002

Messenger:     I went to a funeral of a sweet little nun that
                            taught me clothing in high school.
                        She lived her life serving Jesus.
                        She was a beautiful servant of God.
                        She was quiet, but so beautiful and she
                            taught me how to sew.
                        She in her gentle ways taught me how to
                            do my sewing exactly right.
                        I was a great seamstress after that, I even
                            made a vested suit for my husband and
                            ties and all my curtains to save 
                            money.
                        She was so quiet and kind and Jesus lived
                            in her.
                        What she taught me about sewing was with
                            me for the rest of my life.
                        She taught us the right way.

                        She didn't look like herself, she was little
                            and beautiful in her simple way, but
                            they had lots of pictures that did
                            look like her.

                        We cannot even imagine all the sisters and
                            priests that served God so
                            selflessly and with such love that are in
                            heaven today.

                        I was so happy to see her because I thought
                            oh good and now I can intercede through this
                            holy soul for grace to be outpoured on
                            our priests, the Church and the world.

  

  

April 27, 2002 message continues

Messenger:     I am one soul but I deeply unite to my
                            God and intercede with all the angels
                            and saints in heaven for grace
                            to be outpoured for our priests and
                            the Church and the world.

                        So very many holy souls, sisters and
                            priests who lived a holy celibate
                            life serving God, planting seeds
                            in so many souls that still
                            live in them today.

     

  

April 27, 2002 message continues

Messenger:     So many popes and sisters and priests
                            in heaven.

                        Sisters and priests do have a responsibility
                            to be holy, they affect so many souls.

    

   

April 27, 2002 message continues

Messenger:     Here is a little sister, I always loved
                            so very much, who majorly affected
                            my life by her gentle and holy ways.

                        She helped me make my little girls
                            happy when I made them twin
                            dresses and my husband when
                            I made his suit and my whole
                            family when I sewed our 
                            curtains.

                        I taught my children how to sew
                            like she taught me.

                        She was such a beautiful person and
                            her ways of serving live on in
                            so many today.

                        She touched me and my life.
                        She touched my family.

                        She was gentle and loving and self giving.
                        She was a spouse of Jesus, a holy sister.

                        Now I can intercede through her
                            to help bring down
                            grace for the religious, especially
                            our priests, the Church and the
                            world.

   

  

April 27, 2002 message continues

Messenger:     So many sisters and priests in heaven.

                        So many that can help us as we work
                            so hard on our own personal
                            holiness and pray through their
                            intercession today.

                        Today is the day to unite to God so
                            deeply and pray through the
                            intercession of our sisters and
                            priests and brothers who have
                            passed on and gone to heaven.

                        God is with us we must realize the
                            power there when we pray united
                            to all the angels and saints.

February 7, 2002

  

To whom it may concern,
  

    We circulate the Priestly Newsletter that goes to 75,000 priests in the world. This has been circulated since 1994 at the direction of Fr. Edward Carter, S.J. who had a doctorate in Theology and taught at Xavier University for over thirty years and author of eighteen books on the spiritual life and many other various publications.

    Our primary purpose is to circulate this Newsletter. We are now sending three years of Newsletters in a book of 342 pages to 75,000 priests in the United States and 90 foreign countries. A special Newsletter is enclosed with Father Carter's powerful writing on Grace (2001 issue 1). This writing is also available on tape and on disc.

    Our coequal purpose is to circulate prayer manuals Father Carter compiled for prayer chapters praying for the priests, the Church and
the world.

    All of our printing and postage costs so much money.

    We operate from the Virgin Mary building in Clearwater, Florida, pictures are enclosed. We use the building to spread materials and rosaries
to encourage people to pray for the priests, the Church and the world.

    We also have a church we received from the diocese in China, Indiana where we distribute our materials and pray before the Blessed Sacrament hourly and about two hours or more at 6:20 every day. Monthly adoration before the exposed Eucharist is held for our members for 48 hours on the 12th of each month to the 14th.

    We have a third center in Morrow, Ohio which is our communication center and mailing address.

    We circulate rosaries handmade to Catholic schools all over the United States and meditation sheets and consecration cards. We try to send scapulars too when we have them. We supply many beads to our rosary makers for this.

    We had difficulty all last summer securing funds for beads for our rosary makers. We were not able to send the 100,000 or more rosaries we usually send in October and May because of funds.

    We need $10,000 every month for the loan on the Virgin Mary building. We pray nightly there usually for about two hours or more at 6:20. We pray all through the day there, hourly, many times before the image. A big prayer meeting is held on the 5th of the month. Prayers are prayed for about 4 hours for the priests, the Church and the world. We broadcast to at least 8 states and all join in the prayers, including Morrow and China.

    We have a nursing home ministry and a prison ministry. We supply coloring books of the rosary mysteries and the Mass to children.

    We desperately need funds for the printing and the rosary making operation and all the postage. Bishops from foreign countries beg for rosaries and prayer sheets with the Shepherds of Christ Prayers.

    Now we are struggling with the monthly rent on the building and the postage for the foreign mailing of the Priestly Newsletter Book II.

    We always need money for the rosary beads for the schools and the Virgin Mary building.

    We also do a Holy Spirit Novena, but the little book has been out of print for some time because of lack of funds. Teachers like to use it for confirmation. We have prayer chapters using it daily all over the world.

    We want to circulate pictures of the crucifix and Mary's image on the building, we are unable to do this because of lack of funds. Enclosed are pictures of the crucifix and the Virgin Mary building.

    A very important part of our Movement is trying to get people to say the Morning Offering. Here is a card we distribute extensively, especially to Nursing Homes and school children.
   

  
    Here is a short form of consecration to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary that we circulate extensively.
  

   
    Can you help us. It is a real shame to not even have rent on the building Mary appears on.

    We need to tell the world about the Mass. This is another important aspect of our ministry. We have so many writings about the Mass. Mass Book I with the Imprimaturóand all Fr. Carter's writings and many other writings discerned by Fr Carter before his death. 

    It is a shame with all the money in the world not to be able to get the rosary beads to the rosary makers for school children who want them to pray the rosary.

    Our movement is trying to do what Our Lady told us to do at Fatima for peace in the world.

    Can you help us?
