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.

That whole last year he tried to go twice
a week. He thought it was so important.
Jesus said China, Indiana is His Eucharistic Center.

"MASS IN CHINA WITH FATHER CARTER"
Father Carter's Homily June 28, 2000
Matthew 7: 15-20
‘Beware of false prophets who come to you disguised as sheep but underneath are ravenous wolves. You will be able to tell them by their fruits. Can people pick grapes from thorns, or figs from thistles? In the same way, a sound tree produces good fruit but a rotten tree bad fruit. A sound tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor a rotten tree bear good fruit. Any tree that does not produce good fruit is cut down and thrown on the fire. I repeat, you will be able to tell them by their fruits.
Fr. Carter's homily:"...you will be able to tell them by their fruits." (Matthew 7: 20) words which close today's Gospel. Yes, we are called to bear good fruit for the sake of the Kingdom, and the fruit we bear is in proportion to our love union with Jesus. And our love union with Jesus includes in a necessary way our doing the Father's will in love. This particular reading from Matthew is taken from the Sermon on the Mount, a great sermon which comprises chapters 5, 6 and 7, and whether it is immediately following this particular verse of the Sermon on the Mount, this particular section, it certainly comes very closely thereafter where Jesus gives us this thought:
Matthew 7: 21
'It is not anyone who says to me, "Lord, Lord," who will enter the kingdom of Heaven, but the person who does the will of my Father in heaven.'
Fr. Carter's homily:
So the Sermon on the Mount very closely by the juxtaposition or almost the juxtaposition of these two teachings about bearing good fruit and doing the Father's will reminds us, yes, to produce good fruit demands that we be in union with Jesus in love in doing the Father's will. There's no other way to bear good fruit.
St. John of the Cross reminds us in a very summary statement of this. In one of his writings he says, "What does it profit you to give God one thing if He asks for another? Consider what it is God wants and then do it." 1 Very few words but what profound teaching.
St. Irenaeus, martyr, did the Father's will in that ultimate way of accepting martyrdom. Whatever the Father's will is for us, let us say with St. John of the Cross, "What does it profit you to give God one thing if He asks for another? Consider what it is God wants and then do it." 1 Yes, we do it in union with Jesus and this is how we bear fruit for the Kingdom.

The Homily Father delivered
on the Feast of the Sacred Heart
Father Carter's homily June 30, 2000
John 19: 31-37
The pierced Christ
It was the Day of Preparation, and to avoid the bodies’ remaining on the cross during the Sabbath—since that Sabbath was a day of special solemnity—the Jews asked Pilate to have the legs broken and the bodies taken away. Consequently the soldiers came and broke the legs of the first man who had been crucified with him and then of the other. When they came to Jesus, they saw he was already dead, and so instead of breaking his legs one of the soldiers pierced his side with a lance; and immediately there came out blood and water. This is the evidence of one who saw it—true evidence, and he knows that what he says is true—and he gives it so that you may believe as well. Because all this happened to fulfil the words of scripture:
Not one bone of his will be broken;
and again, in another place scripture says:
They will look to the one
whom they have pierced.
Fr. Carter's homily: The time of the great stock market crash in 1929, there are stories of how many people committed suicide jumping from windows to their death and no doubt taking many other forms of suicide. These no doubt were those who, at least many of them had lost a great amount of money in the crash of the stock market. They had made god their money, and when that money was destroyed, lost, they felt life was useless.
Some people do not make money so much their god as some other human person. They put their quest for happiness in a wrong way in another human person. For instance, and we've heard of it many, many times: a woman devotes her whole life lovingly with such great dedication to her husband and after thirty or forty years the husband suddenly says, "I want a divorce," and walks away from her. Because she had approached the relationship in a wrong way, making him a little god, her life is now shattered. Others put their god in achievement of a great goal, whatever it may be. They carefully plan for it, so carefully that they say, "This cannot fail, I know I will achieve this goal." They find out that they are not in control of this world's events and that goal is not achieved, and again their whole life–because they have sought fulfillment in the wrong way–their whole life lies shattered, so they think, as a bunch, as a pile of burnt-out ashes at their feet. We have been given the gift of faith and we know the goal, the God that we should seek, it is the God revealed to us in Christ Jesus.
Pope John Paul II reminds us in one of his writings that the only source of happiness, of fulfillment, of salvation, is going to the pierced Heart of Jesus, and these words then I work very well off of today's Gospel, where we read how Jesus' side was pierced with the soldier's lance. And the Holy Father also brings very beautifully in the place of the Heart of Mary in all this, so as we look forward to the great Feast of the Immaculate Heart tomorrow, the words of the Pope allow us to admirably join the two feasts. Today is the Feast of the Sacred Heart and tomorrow the Feast of the Immaculate Heart.
The Holy Father says, "The Most Sacred Heart of Jesus reminds us, above all, of those moments when this Heart was ‘pierced by the lance,’ and, thereby, opened in a visible manner to man and the world. By reciting the litany and venerating the Divine Heart in general, we learn the mystery of the Redemption in all its divine and human profundity."
And the Pope also speaks to us about the heart of Mary: "The Immaculate Heart of Mary was open to the word, ‘Woman, there is your son.’ It went to meet spiritually the Heart of the Son opened by the soldier’s lance. The heart of Mary was opened by the same love for man and for the world with which Christ loved man and the world, offering up himself on the cross, even to that lance stroke from the soldier.
"Consecrating the world to the Immaculate heart of Mary means approaching the same Source of Life, through the Mother’s Intercession, that life which flowed forth from Golgatha, the source which gushes out ceaselessly with redemption and grace. Reparation for the sins of the world is continually being accomplished in it. It is ceaselessly the font of new life and holiness.
"Consecrating the world to the Immaculate Heart of the Mother means returning under the Cross of the Son. More: it means consecration of this world to the pierced Heart of the Savior, by bringing the world back to the very source of its Redemption. Redemption is always greater than man’s sin and ‘the sin of the world.’ The power of Redemption infinitely surpasses the whole range of evil in man and in the world.
"The Heart of the Mother is aware of it, more than anyone in the whole cosmos, visible and invisible. This is why she calls. She does not call only to conversion; she also calls upon us to let ourselves be helped by her, the Mother, to return to the source of the Redemption."1

but with His might He can use me

possible to Thee so you will use

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.

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,
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.
