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.

                    heart, of your head, of your life, don't
                    worry. I am peace.

Letters


                                        19 April 2001

Ghana, West Africa

Dear Rita,

                      I have joyfully received the
Shepherds of Christ Ministries materials. I have
received the cassette and the disc, and I
am very grateful to you. I am certainly
going to make the materials available to
many priests and the faithful of Christ. I am
praying that the good Lord opens more
avenues to you to continue to assist us.

    The Sacred Heart is shining well here at
Our Lady ______ Cathedral. We 
also have a Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes
here in Our Diocese. It has been neglected
for long time but now I am trying
to develop the place, but with difficulty.
continue to pray for me.

    Your priest.     Fr. Francis


                                   24 February 2001

    Ibom State, Nigeria

    Dear Fr. Ed,

            I appreciated very much the parcel you
    sent to me. It is a wonderful source of
    spiritual reflections.

            We have formed a chapter of seven
    members. Enclosed is the name of members.
    We read the prayer books with deep interest
    and devotion.

            Thank you very much for you work
    and generosity.

                                        Yours in Christ

                                        Isidore


A Note From the President:

We have a video which can be played using the RealPlayer 8 Basic program. This program can be downloaded free of charge from the www.real.com website. Look for the section where free downloads are available and select the RealPlayer 8 Basic program. 

You do not need to stay at the computer while the RealPlayer 8 Basic program or our movie is downloading. The movie takes about 8 MB of disk space. Once you have the movie saved on your hard drive, you can play it over and over with no wait to interested friends or family members.

These photos were captured from the movie which can be downloaded. We started with video footage of Our Lady of Clearwater and video footage of Our Lady of Guadalupe. When I faded from Our Lady of Clearwater to Our Lady of Guadalupe in the video, I was startled and amazed to see how well the two images match up. I believe it is another sign that Our Lady is truly appearing to the children of the Earth on the Mary Image Building in Clearwater, Florida.

This Internet movie is a small sample of scenes from a real VHS video which was directed by our Lord and is available from Shepherds of Christ. Please contact us to obtain a copy of this video. We operate on donations.

A PLEDGE FROM AN APOSTLE OF THE SACRED HEART

Messenger:

          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
                 will.

           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
                 Thee.             

          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

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. O Lady of Light, shining so bright, be with us this day, guiding our way, O Lady, O Lady of Light. 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. I appear to you as Our Mother of Sorrows.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:

Help me to circulate my red and blue
    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 Jesus born in a stable.
Will you help me?
He is the Light of the World. Help me, help me
    reach my children of the world.
