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.

May 12-14, 2001 - Retreat in China, Indiana - May 13th is a special anniversary of Fatima



excerpt from February 25, 2000

Anyone in the Movement that is an apostle 
    and does not follow the plan I give them 
    will cause tremendous problems for 
    himself and the whole Movement.

Any person that thinks he is too busy 
    doing Jesusí work, but doesnít 
    spend an hour will suffer more 
    and more because he will not 
    have the grace needed to do 
    this. He will be glum, he will 
    lead others off and he himself 
    will be misdirected.

It is important to spend one hour... 
    I tell you, you need to go to Mass 
    every day if you are an apostle and 
    one who has a prominent role in the 
    Movement. You canít do it without 
    your prayers as I have directed.

So much grace is gotten from that hour 
    before the Blessed Sacrament...

I want the hour always before the 
    Blessed Sacrament. I give you 
    so much grace. You canít do 
    it without that hour.

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., Founder, as given on July 31, 1994, feast of Saint Ignatius Loyola, Founder of the Society of Jesus (The Jesuits)

May 11, 2001 message 

Messenger:   I was instructed to read the above and below messages
                          on May 5, 2001 as Mary and Jesus appeared.

 



given to Fr. Carter, 1994

                            Life in the Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is given to us to transform us in the likeness of Christ. This is an ongoing process. Here is a message of Jesus which speaks to the issue:

"My beloved friend, tell My people to pray daily to the Holy Spirit. They are to pray for an increase in His gifts. My people must realize that the Holy Spirit comes to transform them. The Spirit desires to transform you more and more according to My image. Those who are docile to His touch become increasingly shaped in my likeness. He performs this marvel within My Mother's Heart. The more one dwells in My Mother's Heart, the more active are the workings of the Holy Spirit. The Spirit leads Mary to place you within My Heart. In both of Our Hearts, then, your transformation continues. The more you are formed after My own Heart, the more I lead you to the bosom of My Father. Tell My people all this. Tell them to pray daily for a greater appreciation of these wondrous gifts. I am Lord and Master! All who come to My Heart will be on fire to receive the gifts of the Spirit in ever greater measure! I love and bless My people!" (Message of Jesus given to Father Carter).(6)

excerpt from the May 5, 2001 live rosary 
under the image in Clearwater, Florida

Jesus speaks: 

The great gift that I give to you is Myself 
       in the Eucharist.

Look at the intricate seeds of every little flower.
        Hear the birds chirping in the trees.

Look at the Lady before your eyes adorned
         in such splendor and beauty.

A gift My young one I give to you.
         Sing to Me and have faith that there
         will be a day in which the sun will
         shine in the hearts of men as they
         give themselves more and more to
         Me and My Heart will reign in their
         heart. I am your God.

May 11, 2001 message 

Messenger:   Here is the second message May 5, 2001 as Mary and Jesus appeared.

 


excerpt from the May 5, 2001 live rosary 
under the image in Clearwater, Florida

Jesus speaks: 

My beloved ones,
I am Jesus, your Savior,
    and I appear to you this night.

For I have called you to this place
    that you will know more and more
    My love for you, that your hearts
    will be filled with the deepest love,
    that from this time forward that you
    will receive a closeness in your heart
    with one another and with Me, that you
    will know more fully My Mother's love
    for you, that you will realize that you
    have been called to help to bring about
    the reign of My Sacred Heart and the
    triumph of My Mother's heart.

Will you answer the call in the way
    that I am calling you in your heart
    to pray more ardently,
    to be united more to My Movement,
    Shepherds of Christ,
    to pray the prayers of consecration,
    to be united in holy prayer all through
    the day in the Morning Offering?

And it is just the little card
    with the single line that says
    that you give your heart to Me
    and offer up all that you do that
    day in union with the Mass that
    will make such a difference to
    the world.

As you circulate this card to those in
    nursing homes and to the hungry,
    go to the highways and the byways,
    to those that are hungry and ask them,
    please, please, to unite in holy prayer,
    to pray for the Church and the world.

For My Father will grant the greatest grace
    as people all over the earth pray more 
    and more.

Oh My children, I love you so and I ask you
    to sing to Me the song that I gave to you.


Song:
Song from Jesus

 

 

May 5, 2001 message continues

Jesus speaks:
 

And I want you to enjoy the great gift
    that I am giving to you here,
    that you see the golden glimmer
    as We appear to you,
    and more and more the light will shine
    in the little areas as you spread
    My love to the world through all of
    your efforts and through your prayers.

Think of all the little churches being
    little cities of light and the priests united
    in such deep union with My Heart
    and the heart of My mother.

Oh My son and My daughter,
    I have called you to help Me
    to spread the devotion to My
    most Sacred Heart, for My
    Heart is on-fire for love of men.

I am consumed with love,
    and it is love that they seek.

It is love that they are starved for,
    and they go to so many idle pursuits
    in search of fulfilling that which only
    I can fill within their heart.

How is it with the one that walks around
    always looking for that love and acceptance,
    thinking that this will be the answer and
    that will be the answer?
    Is it the money or is it the person?
    Is it this car or that girl or this boy?
    Is it the baby?
    Is it this bed or that furniture?

Whatever it is.

And yet, how does it leave you in the end?
    For you seek Me, My child.

Only I will fill the craving within your heart.

Help Me to spread My love to the world.
    My Heart is consumed and on-fire for love
    of My precious ones.

Will you help Me?

Will you pray fervently for your priests and
    for the Church and for the world?

You do not realize how much grace is released
    when you unite like this as a body and pray.

My Mother asked on April the 5th, 1995
    that there be public gatherings of people
    united praying to give honor and glory to
    God and singing to her as their loving Mother.

When you come to Me at this time,
    you please My Mother,
    for she asked for this
    so many years ago
    and here you are today.

This will help make great reparation to My Heart.

Oh My chosen one, sing to Me.

Chapter Meeting Prayer Format

The prayer format below should be followed at chapter meetings of Shepherds of Christ Associates. All prayers, not just those said specifically for priests, should include the intention of praying for all the needs of priests the world over.

1. Hymns. Hymns may be sung at any point of the prayer part of the meeting.

2. Holy Spirit Prayer. Come, Holy Spirit, almighty Sanctifier, God of love, who filled the Virgin Mary with grace, who wonderfully changed the hearts of the apostles, who endowed all Your martyrs with miraculous courage, come and sanctify us. Enlighten our minds, strengthen our wills, purify our consciences, rectify our judgment, set our hearts on fire, and preserve us from the misfortunes of resisting Your inspirations. Amen.

3. The Rosary.

4. Salve Regina. "Hail Holy Queen, Mother of mercy, our life, our sweetness, and our hope. To you do we cry, poor banished children of Eve. To you do we send up our sighs, our mourning, our weeping in this vale of tears. Turn, then, most gracious advocate, your eyes of mercy toward us and after this, our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of your womb, Jesus, O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary."

5. The Memorare. "Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your help, or sought your intercession was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto you, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother. To you I come, before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but, in your mercy, hear and answer me. Amen."

6. Seven Hail Marys in honor of the Seven Sorrows of Mary. Mary has promised very special graces to those who do this on a daily basis. Included in the promises of Our Lady for those who practice this devotion is her pledge to give special assistance at the hour of death, including the sight of her face. The seven sorrows are:

(1) The first sorrow: the prophecy of Simeon (Hail Mary).

(3) The third sorrow: the loss of the Child Jesus in the temple (Hail Mary).

(4) The fourth sorrow: Jesus and Mary meet on the way to the cross (Hail Mary).

8. Prayer to St. Joseph. St. Joseph, guardian of Jesus and chaste spouse of Mary, you passed your life in perfect fulfillment of duty. You supported the Holy Family of Nazareth with the work of your hands. Kindly protect those who trustingly turn to you. You know their aspirations, their hardships, their hopes; and they turn to you because they know you will understand and protect them. You too have known trial, labor, and weariness.

(8) Fervent souls shall quickly mount to high perfection.

(10) I will give to priests the gift of touching the most hardened hearts.

(11) Those who promote this devotion shall have their names written in My Heart, never to be blotted out.

(12) I promise you in the excessive mercy of My Heart that My all-powerful love will grant to all those who communicate on the first Friday in nine consecutive months the grace of final penitence; they shall not die in My disgrace nor without receiving their sacraments; My divine Heart shall be their safe refuge in this last moment.

10. Prayer for Priests. "Lord Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the Flock, we pray that in the great love and mercy of Your Sacred Heart You attend to all the needs of Your priest-shepherds throughout the world. We ask that You draw back to Your Heart all those priests who have seriously strayed from Your path, that You rekindle the desire for holiness in the hearts of those priests who have become lukewarm, and that You continue to give Your fervent priests the desire for the highest holiness. United with Your Heart and Mary's Heart, we ask that You take this petition to Your heavenly Father in the unity of the Holy Spirit. Amen"

11. Prayer for all members of the Shepherds of Christ Associates. "Dear Jesus, we ask Your special blessings on all members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. Continue to enlighten them regarding the very special privilege and responsibility you have given them as members of Your movement, Shepherds of Christ Associates. Draw them ever closer to Your Heart and to Your Mother's Heart. Allow them to more and more realize the great and special love of Your Hearts for each of them as unique individuals. Give them the grace to respond to Your love and Mary's love with an increased love of their own. As they dwell in Your Heart and Mary's Heart, abundantly care for all their needs and those of their loved ones. We make our prayer through You to the Father, in the Holy Spirit, with Mary our Mother at our side. Amen"

12. Prayer for the spiritual and financial success of the priestly newsletter. "Father, we ask Your special blessings upon the priestly newsletter, Shepherds of Christ.

We also ask that You provide for the financial needs of the newsletter and the Shepherds of Christ Associates. We make our prayer through Jesus, in the Holy Spirit, with Mary at our side. Amen"

13. Prayer for all members of the human family. "Heavenly Father, we ask Your blessings on all Your children the world over. Attend to all their needs.

United with our Mother Mary, we make this petition to You through Jesus and in the Holy Spirit."

14. Prayer to St. Michael and our Guardian Angels:

"St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, O prince of the heavenly hosts, by the power of God, cast into hell Satan and all the other evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen."

"Angel of God, my guardian dear, to whom God's love commits me here, ever this day be at my side, to light and guard, to rule and guide. Amen."

15. Pause for silent, personal prayer. This should last at least five minutes.

16. Act of consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

"Lord Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the flock, I consecrate myself to Your most Sacred Heart. From Your pierced Heart the Church was born, the Church You have called me, as a member of Shepherds of Christ Associates, to serve in a most special way. You reveal Your Heart as a symbol of Your love in all its aspects, including Your most special love for me, whom You have chosen as Your companion in this most important work. Help me to always love You in return. Help me to give myself entirely to You. Help me always to pour out my life in love of God and neighbor! Heart of Jesus, I place my trust in You!

"Dear Blessed Virgin Mary, I consecrate myself to your maternal and Immaculate Heart, this Heart which is symbol of your life of love. You are the Mother of my Savior. You are also my Mother. You love me with a most special love as a member of Shepherds of Christ Associates, a movement created by your Son as a powerful instrument for the renewal of the Church and the world. In a return of love, I give myself entirely to your motherly love and protection. You followed Jesus perfectly. You are His first and perfect disciple. Teach me to imitate you in the putting on of Christ. Be my motherly intercessor so that, through your Immaculate Heart, I may be guided to an ever closer union with the pierced Heart of Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the flock."

17. Daily Prayers. All members should say the Holy Spirit prayer daily and make the act of consecration daily. They should also pray the rosary each day. They are encouraged to use the other above prayers as time allows.

Cathedral of the _________

Dear "Shepherds of Christ" Publishers,

        I received your Issue 4/2000 just yesterday. 
You offer the first 12 issues in book form. I am
interested and ask for it.

        Know I am here in Zimbabwe and have not 
much foreign currency I send you by mail all what 
I have: 

        May God bless you in your efforts and may 
he bless us all in his loving care.

Yours sincerely,
Fr. Hermann

 


 

NIGERIA                                 26 April 2001

Dear Father,

            Greeting in the Lord. I thank you once again 
for your good work in spreading the word of God 
and enlightenment among the clergy and the laity as 
well. More so, I immensely say a Big THANK YOU 
for granting my request of including my name 
among those you will be sending your materials. 
May God replenish and strengthen you for the 
undertaking.

            In the parcel was included the Shepherds of 
Christ Membership Form. I obviously understood 
its contents and I have tried my best to seeing the 
association established but it yielded little fruit. Many 
accepted it but do not consent about coming together 
for the prayer meeting on any base. They prefer 
doing it individually without coming together at all. 
So, I do not think that in addition to my academic 
pursuit I should combine coordinating it with the 
studies. Please, do bear with me.

            On another note, as I value much from your 
Newsletter, may I request that more copies of it be 
send to me so that I may extend its distribution to 
numerous friends and priests. May it also please you 
to send me the newsletters in audio cassettes form. I 
as well plead that you be sending me materials you 
feel that I may need even if I do write for that, 
especially material for creating a prayerful environment.

            Thanks and God bless you.

                                    Yours in Jesus and Mary,
                                    John

Dear Fr.

            Thank you very much for your books and 
well-done for the renewal and growth of me through 
the Spirituality books of Shepherds of Christ. I am 
also grateful for the copy I received recently.

            I am wondering whether it is possible for me 
to continue receiving a copy of your book like 
Meditating on the Rosary Aves. This copy have been 
a helpful for all my family and friend as well.

            You said I should contact for more rosaries, 
kindly sent me some of them. I like to be a member 
of the Shepherds of Christ. Let me know the 
conditions.

            Thank you
            Your In Christ,

Dear Rev.,

                   REMARK/REQUEST

            I received one of the series of your newsletter
precisely, the one dated '2000 Issue 4; from a fellow
Seminarian. After going through that copy I was 
touched, what struck me most was the article with the 
caption "THE VALUE OF WORK". It really gave 
me insight, in seeing the love of God in my work 
and inspired me in doing ordinary duties of mine in 
extra-ordinary way for the Love of God.

            I humbly hereby request you to include me
among the thousands who enjoy this spiritual benefit
from you, that is whom you send your letters.

            I wish to obey all your rules in so far they are
in accordance with the will of the Holy Spirit and the
mind of the Church.

            Thanks,

                                        Yours sincerely,
                                        Ude

Dear Sir/Madam,

        I am very glad to write you this letter. How are you?
I hope by the grace of Almighty God you are fine. As I
am here in St. Jerome. Please the reason why I am writing
you this letter is that, I am a Roman Catholic boy but I
want to be a Rev. Father in my future so I need your help.

        Please try and help me things like rosary, bible,
medal, rosary rings, Jesus pictures, Mary pictures, and
Jesus statues.

        Please try and help me in Jesus name Amen.
If you send it to me, I also will give some to those who
do not have same in my school.

        I hoping you will send it to me.

                                Thank you.

                                Stephen

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.
