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:     My bridegroom waits!

                            December 27, 1995
                            This is the prayer I received as the priest
                                went down the short isle at the
                                Blessed Sacrament chapel in the Cathedral.


A Prayer before the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass

Let me be a holy sacrifice and unite with God in the sacrament of His greatest love.

I want to be one in Him in this act of love, where He gives Himself to me and I give myself as a sacrifice to Him. Let me be a holy sacrifice as I become one with Him in this my act of greatest love to Him.

Let me unite with Him more, that I may more deeply love Him. May I help make reparation to His adorable Heart and the heart of His Mother, Mary. With greatest love, I offer myself to You and pray that You will accept my sacrifice of greatest love. I give myself to You and unite in Your gift of Yourself to me. Come and possess my soul.

Cleanse me, strengthen me, heal me. Dear Holy Spirit act in the heart of Mary to make me more and more like Jesus.

Father, I offer this my sacrifice, myself united to Jesus in the Holy Spirit to You. Help me to love God more deeply in this act of my greatest love.

Give me the grace to grow in my knowledge, love and service of You and for this to be my greatest participation in the Mass. Give me the greatest graces to love You so deeply in this Mass, You who are so worthy of my love.

Messenger:     Many times at St. Theresa Church in Price
                            Hill, I would see Jesus in His red
                            robes and white gown as I went to
                            the altar to receive Him. I saw His
                            precious Heart.

                        I could hardly walk I was so "laid way" in
                            ecstasy and in such a state, the physical
                            seems so disconnected from the 
                            state I am in.

                        I wanted to float to not exert any physical
                            movements and I felt it a burden
                            to move my body.

                        But the gift of seeing Him with His arms
                            open wide ready to give Himself to me
                            in the Holy Eucharist was awesome.
                            I wanted Him so much.

                        Today I see the priest as instrument.
                        We see the father of the bride give the young
                            man to the waiting bride.

                        The disposition of the priest, his deep connection to
                            Jesus and the seriousness of the situation
                            majorly has helped me in connecting deeply
                            to Jesus.



May 16, 2001 message continues

Messenger:     I would sometimes be in an ecstatic state at
                            the reading of the Word of God or the great
                            anticipation of coming to Him and sharing
                            His love so deep in the Mass and the
                            priest would do the homily about intellectual
                            things which would feel to me to take
                            me out of the connection in my heart
                            into a bookish type lecture.

                        I want a love affair with Jesus at the Mass.
                       This is the great gift the Son of God gives
                            Himself to me.



May 16, 2001 message continues

Messenger:     I want this focus in His Word how He speaks.

                        In today's gospel, I could hear Fr. Carter read it.



John 15: 1-8

I am the true vine,
and my Father is the vinedresser.
Every branch in me that bears no fruit
he cuts away,
and every branch that does bear fruit 
    he prunes
to make it bear even more.
You are clean already,
 by means of the word
    that I have spoken to you.
Remain in me, as I in you.
As a branch cannot bear fruit all by itself,
unless it remains part of the vine, 
neither can you unless you remain in me.
I am the vine,
you are the branches.
Whoever remains in me, with me in him,
bears fruit in plenty;
for cut off from me you can do nothing.
Anyone who does not remain in me
 is thrown away like a branch
—and withers;
these branches are collected
    and thrown on the fire
and are burnt.
If you remain in me
and my words remain in you,
you may ask for whatever you please
and you will get it.
It is to the glory of my Father
    that you should bear much fruit 
and be my disciples.



May 16, 2001 message continues

Messenger:     His reading of it emphasized the deep oneness that
                            Our God wants with Him. That we are
                            so one with Him and He uses a vine and
                            a branch. Do you see the deep connection between
                            the branch and the vine
                            the flow of fluids between the two, the
                                dependence of the life of the branch on
                                the vine, the state of being so connected
                                and one.

                        Jesus speaks to us in His Blue Book messages.

                        On May 13, 1993 as I left Conyers after a 
                            strong wind and buckets of rain water, the 
                            wind and storm came up so quickly, I received
                            this message as my daughter wrote it in the car.


From God's Blue Book I

Picture of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

Cling to Me

God's Blue Book I Cover

May 13, 1993 

My dear child, if you stay close to Me, then I live in you and you live in Me. I am He Who created you and I love you with such an intensity that you will never know. My words are your truth. You must abide in My heart in all things. There is no room for doubt. My ways are steadfast, direct, and without error.

You must stay rooted in Me to ward off the power of the evil one. His grip is paralyzing and crippling. His power is stronger every day.

When you live in Me, I am in your heart and he has no power over Me. I am your God. I am your true lover. I want to protect you. I want to guard you from this force. Stay rooted firmly in Me and he will have no power.

I am He Who comforts you. My hand is upon you. Hold tight to Me, My child. My eyes are fixed right on you. You are My most precious child. I love you as no other can. My arms are about you. My tenderness surrounds you. My love is in your heart. You go not alone. I walk with you.

I share every aspect of your life with you. Cling to Me, feel My presence. It is warm and secure within your chest. There is no room for fear, for I cast out fear and bring you comfort and joy.

(End of message from God's Blue Book I)



May 16, 2001 message continues

Messenger:     Jesus wanted this message first in the first Blue Book.
                            I had received lots of messages since September, 1991
                            but this was what He wanted on this date in the
                            1st Blue Book. Seventy-six years since
                            Fatima and Jesus begins His mission through the 
                            Blue Books with the first message about oneness.
                       He wants such oneness. Like St. Paul says - 
                           (Gal 2:20) "...yet it is no longer I, but Christ living in me..."

                       Through the Mission He began in the Shepherds of 
                            Christ He would help to bring to completion the
                            mission His Mother began at Fatima.

                        The next year Mary began appearing to me July 5, 1994
                            and Father Carter received the message in May, 1994
                            to begin the Newsletter.

                        The message given to Father here on the feast of St. Ignatius,
                            July 31, 1994 was the same month
                            Mary began appearing. She had appeared at least
                            25 times when he received this message.

                        She was dressed in white and lighted like fire
                            that July 5, 1994 and I was so awestruck
                            I could not write or walk.
                            My daughter again wrote up the account of
                                the visit as I drove home.
                            I could hardly move from the chair.

                        Some ecstatic states were so deep I had trouble
                            walking after them. On March 17, 1995
                            we did the very first rosary in the Sorrowful
                            Mother Chapel before the exposed Eucharist
                            at 12:00 noon on a Friday. I was in an ecstatic
                            state when I received these messages.

                        That is why it is so important to preserve every
                            word and the experience He gave that day.
                            To some it looks like words on a page, to 
                            Jesus He outpoured lavishly His burning love in
                            the messages He delivered.

                        After that rosary I went to a Mass celebrated by Father
                            Carter at his Jesuit residence at 1:30 p.m.
                        These messages are in the Red Rosary book March 17, 1995.
                        At the end of this message we include this special
                            rosary from Jesus.

                        He did not want us to do the Tuesday Shepherds of Christ
                            Rosaries in the Sorrowful Mother Chapel yet.

The Rosary Chapel

May 16, 2001 message continues

Messenger:     Mary appeared daily in the Rosary Chapel for the
                            exact length of a normal pregnancy about 9 months.
                            They put Mary in the Holy Spirit Chapel and
                            on March 5, 1995 she appeared as she 
                            did exactly July 5, 1994. Her skin was
                            dark colored like the image on the building
                            and Our Lady of Guadalupe. On July 5, 1994 when 
                            she first appeared her skin was cracked,
                            she looked so pained in sorrow. On March 5, 1995
                            her skin was the same color as July 5, 1994,
                            there was this tremendous light.

                        But Mary was in the Rosary Chapel for the
                            length of about 9 months or a normal

                        The birth of the Shepherds of Christ Core Chapter
                            began there the last Tuesday in August, 1994.

                        Jesus requested this and wanted the meetings on
                       Mary would appear as usual at 6:30 and we
                            prayed the rosary, then after that, we all
                            gathered before Mary and prayed the
                            Shepherds of Christ prayers and the rosary
                            beginning the last Tuesday of August, 1994.

                        Father Carter was very faithful coming to the daily
                            apparitions those beginning months.

                        You can see how the Red Rosary book rosary meditations
                            were so connected to Mary's apparitions in
                            Clearwater. The book left the publisher
                            December 17, 1996 with the rainbow on it,
                            the same day Mary appeared on the building.

                        When doing the Shepherds of Christ Prayers it is
                            very helpful to use the Red Rosary book for
                            the rosary meditations. The prayer service can
                            be similar to those first appearances of Mary when
                            you use the rosary meditations and messages from
                            Jesus and Mary. 
                        Jesus and Mary have promised great graces when
                            using the meditations and praying the rosary
                            especially by candlelight.

                        In the pages of the Red Rosary book and its meditations
                            we account the deep experiences Jesus and Mary gave 
                            to me and to the core group in the Rosaries in those
                            beginning Shepherds of Christ Meetings and daily
                            apparitions of Mary. There were also special rosaries
                            given at 12:00 noon on Friday at Our Lady of the
                            Holy Spirit Center, for example March 17, 1995 
                            and July 11, 1995 in the Red Rosary book.
                        The core group was formed by these Rosaries
                            in the beginning.
                        Jesus has promised special graces to those who
                            used these rosaries.
                        He promised to give special graces when we
                            prayed them and said He and His Mother
                            would be there in a special way.

Messenger:    There has been great success in using the Red Rosary book in
                            the prison ministry.
                        They are used with the Shepherds of Christ Prayers.
                        This program has majorly helped the prisoner's lives. 

                        I would like to see more people go to the prisons. They
                            should stick close to the program as Jesus has
                            designed it. This is what He wishes.
                        People should be docile and follow the program as Jesus wants,
                            not to promote themselves or speak on their own.
                        The Red Rosary book and the Shepherds of Christ
                            Prayer Chapters really help the prisoners.

                        You should not speak out your own theories, but
                            stick to the messages and writings and prayers
                            Jesus has given and are discerned.

                        The men in prisons have responded so well to this.
                        Also it would be important to give them the 
                            Rosary Aves which can be printed from the
                            PDF file and the Say Daily Card.

                            in school - to all.

                            those in assisted living or it can be 
                            played for anyone praying the rosary
                            if the volume is turned down.
                       For all others,
                        another video is really important. It is
                            the April 17, 1994 video.

                        It is a video called
                            "Messages from Jesus"            

                        When they filmed this video the sun pulsated
                            over Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center.
                            It was filmed 26 days after the corner
                            fell off the building there.

Holy Spirit Chapel

May 16, 2001 message continues

Messenger:    This video was filmed over 2 1/2 years before Mary
                            appeared on the building December 17, 1996.

                     There are so many signs, but you must
                         pray to have eyes to see. Pray for the grace
                         to be so close to Him. The Prayers Jesus 
                         gave to Father Carter in the Shepherds of 
                         Christ Prayer Manual are so important. 
                         Jesus promised Father Carter
                             July 31, 1994:

                                 "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."

                        How could you have a good marriage or a deep
                            friendship with anyone if you did not
                            spend intimate time with them?

                        If we want to be really one with Jesus we must
                            realize that He wants that intimate time
                            with Him, especially after the reception of the Eucharist.
                            He said He is especially present for about
                            twenty minutes after communion and in 
                            that time of deep intimacy He implants
                            deep knowledge of Himself on our soul if
                            we remain with Him.

May 16, 2001 message continues

Messenger:    Think of that, the Divine God gives Himself to
                            us. He wants this deep union with us.
                            He is with us in such a special union when 
                            we go to communion. God wants to be
                            so deeply united. How would it be if a
                            husband and wife never spent time in
                            intimate love with each other, if all they
                            did was tend to problems and the children?

                        Jesus wants that hour every day. In that hour
                            we spend with Him, He implants knowledge
                            of Himself on our soul, He helps us to
                            see what God's will is for us in this troubled
                            world that teaches so many untruths. In that time
                            we can sort out things with His help and know
                            better God's will for us.

                        Jesus went away to pray.

                        See the apostles while Jesus is in the garden
                            and they are sleeping.

                        We are His modern day apostles and He is saying

                            "Can you not spend one hour with Me?"

                        In a Blue Book message He was lamenting and He
                            cried out, I give you twenty-four hours
                            a day, you can't give Me one hour.



May 16, 2001 message continues

Jesus speaks:  Oh and in that hour I give you so many gifts.
                            I outpour My gifts to you. I give you so
                            much grace and love when you come 
                            before the tabernacle.
                            I outpour My love to you!!

                         I love you so ------- deeply.

MARCH 17, 1995 NOON

        Every Friday at Noon, Jesus gave us a very tender rosary. We always did the Sorrowful Mysteries on Friday at 12:00 noon. This was the first rosary received in the Sorrowful Mother Chapel before the exposed Eucharist. Rita was in an ecstatic state. Marty saw angels around the monstrance and Sorrowful Mother statue.

The Agony in the Garden

  1. R. Be with Jesus in the Garden, alone with Him as if you are there and experiencing what He is about to undergo. Think of knowing all that you will suffer. See before you all that He is about to experience. Put yourself with Jesus in the Garden and feel deeply in your heart whatever the Spirit allows you to experience.
  2. Jesus: I am an endless furnace of love. My Heart is beating for each one of you here. See My Heart as it beats. Think of this beating. Think of the beating Heart!
  3. Jesus: I pour out to you My endless love constantly. I never leave you. I am forever with you, second by second, minute by minute. I am forever present with you in this room the same as the day I knelt in the Garden. Be alone with Me. Empty your mind of any distractions, of any concerns. Be totally wrapped in the love that I am giving to you. Open your hearts wide and let Me unite ever so closely within your heart. I am Jesus, your most ardent Lover, on fire for love of you, My beloved ones. As I knelt in the Garden, I pondered the ways of your heart. My Heart ached for all the souls that would treat Me with such indifference and neglect. Comfort My aching Heart with your love for Me.
  4. Jesus: Be with Me as I kneel and see all of the sufferings that I experience. But the sufferings that I experienced to My body were not My greatest sufferings. My greatest sufferings were the agonies that I experienced in My Heart for the endless souls that pay Me no heed, that never come to Me, that stay at such a distance. And I am in love with them, so deeply in love!
  5. Jesus: I call out to you to take My plea seriously. My plea involves the salvation of souls. Open your hearts and let Me unite closely to you so that I can live in you. Through you I will touch My beloved ones that I love so dearly. How I love you this day, My precious ones. Be alone with Me, totally wrapped in My embrace. I am Jesus, your Savior, and I love you with the deepest, tenderest love. I pour My love out to you. Harken to Me. Let go!
  6. Hail Mary ...
  7. Hail Mary ...
  8. Jesus: Surrender! Surrender! Surrender! Open wide the gates to your hearts. You are so closed. You tap at My source so lightly when I am an ocean of endless love and mercy that I want to pour into your hearts. You must surrender to become closely united to Me. You think you are letting go. You are not letting go! You are holding on as tightly as you can hold on. You let go of what you want to let go of. I am calling you to more, to be so closely united that I can operate through you. Will you surrender or will you control everything that is in your life that pertains to Me? I want to live with you second by second, to operate in every deed that you do, to be one with you as you perform those deeds. You are My mighty soldiers to go into the war and to do My work. Surrender! Surrender! Surrender!
  9. Jesus: Open wide the portals of your heart. Let me penetrate every cell of your being. I want such oneness with you. You do not comprehend My immense love. You must surrender!
  10. Jesus: Consecrate yourself totally to My Heart and that of My Mother.

Song between decades: I come to you with greatest love, I am your loving Savior. I am your God, I died for you. I come to you this day.

Jesus Is Scourged at the Pillar

  1. R. His body was beaten! His flesh was torn! He was scourged and bleeding!
  2. R. He stood in total surrender to His persecutors. He knew the Father's Will. He knew the plan of salvation, that He was dying for the salvation of all.
  3. R. He stood in such total submission to these men who treated Him so harshly. He did not answer back, always in compliance with the Father's Will. It is in compliance with His Will that our peace and joy lie. He has a plan for each one of us, His specially loved children.
  4. Jesus: They whipped Me! They tore My flesh! They treated Me with such harshness. I withstood all of this treatment. But the greatest agonies were not the agonies of My body but the agonies in My Most Sacred Heart for all the souls in their busy lives that have totally forgotten Me. I am in your midst and with you this very day and how many come to be with Me? A few! So big is this world and so few even realize that I am God and that I am truly present here with you!
  5. Jesus: They will persecute you! They will treat you with such anger! Come to My Heart and know the immensity of My love. For, minute by minute, second by second, I am ever attentive to all of your needs. I am the most ardent Lover, waiting to be close to you. If you tap ever so gently, there is so much more!
  6. Jesus: I pour My life out to you. My grace is My life. It is divine life that I give. Nothing on this earth compares to this divine life!
  7. Jesus: Pray to be sensitive to My touch. Every time that I give you My grace I am touching you in a special way so that you may respond to all the graces that I am pouring out to you this day.
  8. Jesus: I give to you My Heart as a sign of My immense love for you. See My Heart beating! See it, each pulse of My Heart! This is how I love you. Second by second, minute by minute, I am always there.
  9. Jesus: I want to be one in you, to operate from you! You must surrender!
  10. Hail Mary…

Song between decades: I come to you with greatest love…

Jesus Is Crowned with a Crown of Thorns

  1. R. They pounded into His head a crown of sharp, piercing thorns.
  2. R. Think of how it would be to have someone pound into your head thorns that would puncture your skull. The blood ran from these thorns down His face, into His eyes and into His ears.
  3. R. He had seen before Him in the Garden all of these things that they would do. Now He experienced exactly what He had seen. At any time, He could have stopped anything that happened because He was God! But because He loves each one of us with the deepest love, He allowed them to pound into His skull sharp, piercing thorns that punctured His head. He allowed them to beat Him and tear His flesh. He stood in total submission to the Will of the Father, His Heart ever beating, as it beats for us this day, with deepest love. The same Jesus that suffered this agony loves us with this same love this day. So many do not even think of Him. How His Heart was wounded and hurt for all His beloved ones!
  4. R. This is Jesus Christ. He is truly God! God took the form of a human being because He loved us so much. He took on our human nature. A divine person took on our human form!
  5. R. Who are we that God loves us this much?
  6. R. They spit on Him and they hollered obscenities at Him. Think of the things that irritate us this day. Even when people are not cruel to us, how we ponder in our minds things that we think someone may have done that might have been cruel! But Jesus came to show us the way. They pounded into His Head a crown of sharp, piercing thorns and He loves those who did this to Him. He asks us to love one another. His way is always love. He asks us to purify our hearts, not to give in to the ways of the mind, not to give in to thinking ill thoughts of our brothers, but to purify our hearts and focus on Him. His way is love, always love, not sizing up our brothers or ever thinking harshly of them. See them through His eyes, the eyes of love. See our brothers as the creation of our Father. How He loves each and every soul that He was beaten, that His flesh was torn, that He was crowned with thorns because He loves our brothers so much.
  7. Jesus: I want to tell each one of you this day of My immense love that I have for you. You do not realize how I am truly speaking here to you. You close your hearts. You cut yourself off from the grace I am giving to you. I truly love with the deepest love. Open up your hearts and surrender. My ways are so simple. My ways are truth! You must release yourselves and come to Me for all your needs. Realize that, minute by minute, second by second, I am dealing with you directly.
  8. Jesus: The very hairs of your head are numbered. I am with you at this second and I am providing for every one of your cares and needs but your minds are busy and you think of all that you must do. When will you release yourself and let Me operate with you in every deed that you do? When will you become one with Me so that I can operate through you to do the work that is at hand? You are humans. When I become one with you, the might of God is within you. I can do in one second what a human cannot do in a million years. You must trust. You must surrender. You must let go. Let go now and be totally wrapped in My love, My intense love that I pour out to you, My beloved ones. Let go! Let go! Let go, for I am truly here and working in your heart.
  9. Song: Crown Him with many crowns, the Lamb upon His throne. His regal scepter knows no bounds, all kingdoms are His own. All Christians come and sing to Him Who died for thee and hail Him as thy Savior King for all eternity.
  10. Hail Mary…

Song between decades: I come to you with greatest love…

Jesus Carries His Cross

  1. Jesus: They gave Me a heavy cross that they placed on My shoulder and I carried My cross. I could hardly move but My thoughts were always of you and the immense love that I have for you.
  2. Jesus: This world has rejected God! This world crucified Me! Why do you not realize that they will crucify you, that they will persecute you, that they will holler slanders against you? If they crucified Me, why should they treat you any differently when you spread My word?
  3. Jesus: You are the soldiers that I send into battle, a battle to spread My love throughout this world. It is in your submissiveness and surrender that I can operate through you to give My love to this world.
  4. Jesus: Surrender! Surrender! Surrender! I am calling out to you to take up your cross and go into battle, to battle for Me to spread this love, for souls will be lost to eternal damnation because they do not know My love.
  5. Jesus: Time is drawing near. I tell you! I tell you! I tell you! As I spoke then, and many did not listen, I tell you today that I am depending upon you, My beloved ones. You must fight against the godlessness of this world. But you must go on. You must be My warriors that go into battle. Powered by the fire of My love, you can conquer the earth with your hearts filled with the immense love that I pour out to this world through you. You will be the light that will shine in the darkest night. You will be a city set on a hill that will shine to the rest of this world. Come to My Heart and take refuge in My Heart for I am truly God and I call out to you, My beloved ones, with such tender love this day.
  6. Jesus: As I walked on and on with the heavy cross on My back, a cross which became heavier as I walked, your crosses seem to get heavier each day. Time is so short! The work you do here will help to lead souls to eternal happiness in heaven. Please listen to Me! Have courage! Pray to the Spirit for the fearlessness to do the job that is at hand. I send you into this world to preach the Gospel. You are My soldiers going into battle. You will light up this world. A city set on a hill will shine to the rest of this world. You are the city. You are My soldiers. I send you into battle.
  7. Jesus: In battle there is bloodshed. On My way to Calvary I shed much blood for love of My beloved souls. I ask you to surrender and to do this work for Me this day for I truly gave My life for love of each precious soul. Will you not spread this love to a world that is in pain and hurting?
  8. Jesus: Surrender! Surrender! Surrender! It is not by your own might that you will light up the world. It is only through My power radiating through you. It is only in your oneness with Me. The most important thing you can do is to spend time with Me each day, to become one in Me. Keep your focus on Me and all will fall into line for I am truly here and longing to operate from your hearts. I am the Almighty God. My power is endless, My love a source of such love that no human can even comprehend. I am God! I am speaking to you!
  9. Hail Mary ...
  10. Hail Mary ...

Song between decades: I come to you with greatest love…

Jesus Is Crucified and Dies on the Cross

  1. Jesus: I hung for three agonizing hours on the cross. My body was beaten, My head crowned with thorns. I breathed My last breath, My thoughts always of you, My beloved ones. I truly died for you.
  2. Jesus: Do you not hear My plaintive cries, the cries that I am giving to you this day, to spread this love throughout the world? You are the backbone. You are the ones that will carry this out. You must be strong soldiers. I am speaking directly to you. You are going into battle. It is a hard battle. Do not be discouraged by the opposition that Satan has created for you. He will try to stop you at every turn, but you must be strong soldiers and you must stayed fixed in Me. Only if you are rooted in My love can you do the work that I am asking you to do. You are human. You, on your own, cannot do this work. This work is the work of lighting up the world with the fire of My love. You must be strong soldiers. You are truly battling a world that hates God. Come to My Heart and receive all that you need to light up this world.
  3. Jesus: My Mother stood under My cross. My beloved Mother! How she loves each one of you. Go to the Heart of Mary and reside in her arms. Rest in her Heart. This is Her House. She is with each one of you on your journey. We love you with the tenderest love.
  4. Jesus: As she stood by Me all through My life, she stands by your side. Think of that! Where you are sitting now, Mary is right by you. Do you feel her presence? Put yourself on the other side. Be alone with Us now. Let go of this world. Be touched by the grace of God, special grace that I am giving to you alone. The angels and saints are so present here at this Center. They are in the halls. You do not realize because you do not see. You must be alone with Me and let go of your world to be united ever closer and to see these things that I want to show you.
  5. Jesus: See Me hanging on the cross. Do you see that? Do you need to see with your eyes? Do you know what you feel when you receive the Eucharist? You must reach more and more beyond your vision. Reach into your heart. I communicate in your heart. Such oneness I have with you in your heart! See beyond your eyes, beyond your ears, and go inside into your heart. Minute by minute, second by second, I am there! Mary is with you. My Father and the Holy Spirit are inside of you. You just do not see. Pray more for grace to partake in the life I want to give you.
  6. Jesus: Pray to the Holy Spirit to open your eyes more and more to the things of God. You are all blind men! You do not realize the great gifts that you have. You must be lost in My Heart. Come to My Heart and let Me hold you close to My divine love!
  7. Jesus: My love is burning and on fire for you. Do you see Me as I hang on the cross with My arms outstretched? I held on to nothing! I totally surrendered to the Will of the Father. I held nothing back. I gave My flesh and My blood. I was born in poverty in a stable and I died on the cross. I came to show you the way so that you might have life and have life to the full. Life is not life if it is not rooted in Me!
  8. Jesus: Let Me pour My life out to you. Feel its vibrancy within you. I am truly with you this day and longing for closer union with you. Let go! Let go! Let go!
  9. Jesus: It is in this time that you spend alone with Me that I can work in your heart. Do not look for visions. Do not look to hear things. Go inside of your heart and be alone with Me. Spend this time with Me each day and, through the day, spend short periods, minutes when you just close your eyes and focus on My presence with you, for I am truly present. I will work in your heart when you come to Me in these special moments.
  10. Jesus: This time between noon and 3:00 p.m. is so important to Me. Spend this time focusing on being ever more united to Me and think of My passion. See Me as I hung on the cross. See My flesh torn! See the blood as it ran down My body. Spend this time each Friday focused from noon until 3:00 p.m. on My passion. It is in meditating on this passion that you will realize My immense love that I have for you. I truly gave My blood. I gave you My flesh. I give you My body and I give you My blood this day in the Eucharist. Come to Me and spend time with Me after Communion and let Me work in your heart, for I love you so dearly, My beloved ones. I am Jesus. Jesus! I love you so much!

Song after the last decade: I come to you with greatest love…

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 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.

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.
