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.


Excerpt from October 8, 1998

Messenger: If we saw our deceased loved ones we would feel such emotion within our hearts. We would not remember the day-by-day annoyances that we remembered when we lived with them. We would be so happy to see them and we would cry from deep within to embrace them.

As members baptized in the Church, we are one body in Him. We unite with our beloved Jesus in His pure Heart, in the pure and Immaculate Heart of Mary, in the Holy Spirit. We, the whole body united, offer this Holy Sacrifice of the Mass to the Father. It is the Sacrifice of Calvary sacramentally made present on the altar through the hands of the specially anointed priest acting in Christ's name.

Oh the wonder of this great gift God gives to man! With such emotion I write to you wishing only to impress upon the world the treasures He has revealed to me about the Mass.

Oh my God, let the floodgates of heaven open wide and the grace pour forth from your most Sacred Heart, let heaven and earth unite on the holy altar as Holy Mother the Church joins in one accord with Christ in offering this sacrifice.

I beg that all those here present are consecrated in their hearts to the pure and holy Hearts of Jesus and Mary so that the Sacrifice is most pure. I beg that the priest is so one with Christ, Priest and Victim, in the pure heart of Mary and in the Holy Spirit in offering the Holy Sacrifice to the Father.

Why do we call this sacrifice holy as far as our participation is concerned if we come with such tainted hearts? Oh God, help us to spread the consecration so that the hearts of men will unite with the pure and holy Hearts of Jesus and Mary and thus offer a most pure sacrifice.

The Victory Song   Revelation 19:5-9 ends with: 'Write this: "Blessed are those who have been called to the wedding feast of the Lamb." '

Revelation 19:5-9

Then a voice came from the throne; it said 'Praise our God, you servants of his and those who fear him, small and great alike.' And I heard what seemed to be the voices of a huge crowd, like the sound of the ocean or the great roar of thunder, answering, 'Alleluia! The reign of the Lord our God Almighty has begun; let us be glad and joyful and give glory to God, because this is the time for the marriage of the Lamb. His bride is ready, and she has been able to dress herself in dazzling white linen, because her linen is made of the goods deeds of the saints.' The angel said, 'Write this, "Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding feast of the Lamb,"' and he added, 'These words of God are true.'

Revelation 1:6

and made us a Kingdom of Priests to serve his God and Father; to him, then, be glory and power for ever and ever. Amen.

Revelation 5:10

and made them
    a line of kings and priests for God,
to rule the world.

Messenger: And we pray this Our Father at Mass.

Our Father Who art in heaven hallowed be
Thy name, Thy Kingdom come,
Thy will be done on earth as it is
in heaven...

We come united in such oneness with Our God, we, united with the priest in oneness with Christ, offering ourselves as a sacrifice to Our God and Father.

We wish Our Father to look down and see the gift we offer, ourselves united to Our beloved Jesus, this most pleasing sacrifice to Our Father.

Our intent is to unite in the deepest union with Him, thus we unite to the holy, pure Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

We thank You, we praise You, we love You with the saints and angels, we praise You Lord Our God.

Holy, Holy Holy God, Lord of Hosts.

Father, please accept our offering. Open now the floodgates of heaven and let the grace pour on this earth to water the thirsty, barren earth.

Oh, my God, for at that moment of Consecration...The Sacrifice of Calvary becomes sacramentally made present on Your altars under the appearance of bread and wine. And now You give us Your Body and Blood.

I cry from the depth of my soul to You, pour out Your life to me.

My God I cry to Thee, I beg
LAMB of God, Who takes away the sins of the world, have mercy on us.
Lamb of God, Who takes away the sins of the world, have mercy on us.
Lamb of God, Who takes away the sins of the world, grant us peace.

And my heart is thus filled with love for my beloved Bridegroom Who gives Himself to sinful me.

Oh, I live only for Jesus, for the moments that I share most deeply with Him in this holy Sacrament, the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist.

For it is truly the Divine God that gives Himself to me. My beautiful Jesus, the most beautiful Sacred Heart, the tenderest of all hearts, the One Who knows my soul and heart far better than I could ever know myself.

Why is it that we are so "taken up" with wanting desires of love from our fellows when He opens wide His Sacred Heart and asks us to go into His Heart and dwell deeply within forever?

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.

About the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass

    My God, this is all I care about -- this union with You for all eternity, the rapture of existing in You in the deepest possible, most mature relationship.

    My life is a journey to grow in an always deeper relationship with God here on earth so that my relationship with Him in eternity may be as deep as possible.   Oh, the glory of it all, this rapturous union, existing in such depth with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

    Since the writings of the day August 2, 1999, morning Mass and 6:20 p.m. prayers (appeared August 3, 1999 Internet), I understand more fully the idea of total consecration. My life was given to Him at Baptism and now there is that complete surrendering of my life, of my will given to Him.

    I identify so profoundly with Him in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. I see the meaning of consecration and the prayer He gave me December 27, 1995, the Prayer before the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. It is, indeed, a most powerful prayer, for He acted in my soul so that it would be written for us to pray so we can advance more profoundly to a deeper union in Him in this Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.

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.

                                                                           -God's Blue Book, December 27, 1995

~ August 4, 1999 continues ~

    I must stop here and define sacrifice. A sacrifice is a consecrated offering. The Mass is a Sacrifice. One of its purposes is to make atonement to our God for man's sins. We are coming to the altar of sacrifice as sinners, connected to one another as creatures of God, going to God and begging mercy and forgiveness for our sins. We are sorry we have sinned and we recognize our dependence on Him and His grace.

    Today I was given great grace in the Mass, including the ability to dwell in Him in great depths. He takes over my being as I exist in Him. It is He Who chiefly pleads in the Sacrifice to the Father. It is His emotions I experience. Today...I felt as if the flood gates of heaven opened on the earth as I existed in Him.

    I was with Him on the cross and my heart was consumed with love, the pain and anguish of the body I no longer felt, for the love for the souls He loves consumed my heart.  I felt His love in me and all He wanted was for them to be saved. I wanted them to be loving and as the Father wished from the beginning. The love I felt for each precious soul was so immense, for His desire was that not one be lost, not one, but that every soul be saved . I kept hearing the song One Bread, One Body, as it played within me as my soul joined in.  The emotion was so strong for oneness that it made me cry harder, wanting it so very much. It was as if a chorus sang the song, but it came from the depth of my heart as I was one in Him and existed in Him.

    It is hard to account this, for things happen, so many things happen all at once in the Mass around the Consecration and thereafter.

    A chorus sings as He hangs on the cross. It was as if my soul left my body, for all I knew was love, the love for souls, the fire of burning divine love within my being wanting only creatures existing in Him for all eternity.

    I knew the intensity to a small degree of the offering of Himself completely to the Father. I knew the pleading He did with His whole being in satisfaction for the sins of men.

    I knew more the purity of a God-made Man giving Himself as a Sacrifice and the power of it for all of the vile sins of all men for all time.

    I knew Him in His love, He was consumed for souls. I knew the complete offering of Himself, the begging for souls to be saved. His whole being was consumed with wanting souls saved. From deep within He offered Himself because of the greatness of His love.

    Love is a consuming force.

    God is love.

    I was with Him on the cross, experiencing to a small extent the desires of His Heart for His beloved creatures. I was participating in the Mass in which the Sacrifice of Calvary is sacramentally made present for us today. I realized as I participated in the Mass in Him that He in this oneness in my soul was pleading for His beloved souls in Me.

    I begged for mercy, mercy for all generations, for all my ancestors and I could hear Him in the words of the Mass, He being so one in the priest, offering this Sacrifice to the Father for His beloved souls.

    Oh mercy, we plead for mercy from our God. I heard the words of Jesus in the priest and I heard the words, "through Him, with Him and in Him".

    We offer sacrifice, consumed in the deepest love in the holy all-pure Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

    We empty ourselves, for this is what He did.

    He, God, emptied Himself completely and gave Himself for love of His precious souls so that they would be saved.

    We offer ourselves, I emptied myself. I want this most complete Consecration to Them so that I can partake to the greatest possible degree in purity in this Sacrifice and plead as He did for His precious souls. I am pleading in Him for our earth, for all priests, for all souls, as I exist in a place of deepest love for Them, pleading for forgiveness, wanting to make reparation to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary for the offering of sacrifices that could have been more pure and holy and for ignoring Them entirely many times.

    I plead as I exist in the New Adam, as I am united to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, the New Adam and the New Eve.

    I know a little more of this greatest Sacrifice. God gave His Son as our Savior. He came through a human person, pure and spotless, Mary the Immaculate Virgin.

    Help me to spread this knowledge of this most powerful gift, the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in which the Sacrifice of Calvary is sacramentally made present so that we will all partake more fully in this great act of offering Sacrifice. Pray that great grace and mercy will be outpoured on the earth. Unite all your activities to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass for the Church and the world and the intentions of the Shepherds of Christ Movement, His Movement, by saying the Morning Offering.

Morning Offering

    My dear Father, I offer you this day all my prayers, works, joys, and sufferings in union with Jesus in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass throughout the world, in the Holy Spirit.

    I unite with our Mother Mary, all the angels and saints, and all the souls in purgatory to pray to the Father for myself, for each member of my family, for my friends, for all people throughout the world, for all the souls in purgatory, and for all other intentions of the Sacred Heart.

    I love You, Jesus, and I give You my heart. I love you, Mary, and I give you my heart.

~ August 4, 1999 continues ~

    At the end of this little Morning offering say,

    "We offer our day to help in the salvation of souls, for our priests, the renewal of the Church and the world and for the Shepherds of Christ intentions."

    Oh God, Lamb of God, You take away the sins of the world, HAVE MERCY ON US.

I feel as Lucia in this vision at Mass. Pray with me like this at Mass.

Priestly Newsletter 1999 Issue 4

The Eucharist

At the Last Supper, on the night He was betrayed, our Saviour instituted the Eucharistic Sacrifice of His Body and Blood. He did this in order to perpetuate the sacrifice of the Cross throughout the centuries until He should come again, and so to entrust to His beloved spouse, the Church, a memorial of His death and resurrection: a sacrament of love, a sign of unity, a bond of charity, a paschal banquet in which Christ is consumed, the mind is filled with grace, and a pledge of future glory is given to us (Vatican II, Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy, No. 17)9

For if the sacred liturgy holds the first place in the life of the Church, the Eucharistic Mystery stands at the heart and center of the liturgy, since it is the font of life by which we are cleansed and strengthened to live not for ourselves but for God, and to be united in love among ourselves...

"It is to be desired that the faithful, every day and in great numbers, actively participate in the Sacrifice of the Mass, receive Holy Communion with a pure heart, and give thanks to Christ Our Lord for so great a gift...

"In the course of the day the faithful should not omit to visit the Blessed Sacrament, which according to the liturgical laws must be kept in the churches with great reverence in a most honorable location. Such visits are a proof of gratitude, an expression of love, an acknowledgment of the Lord’s presence.

"No one can fail to understand that the Divine Eucharist bestows upon the Christian people an incomparable dignity. Not only while the sacrifice is offered and the sacrament is received, but as long as the Eucharist is kept in our churches and oratories, Christ is truly the Emmanuel, that is ‘God with us’. Day and night He is in our midst, He dwells with us, full of grace and truth. He restores morality, nourishes virtues, consoles the afflicted, strengthens the weak. He proposes His own example to those who come to Him that all may learn to be, like Himself, meek and humble of heart and to seek not their own interests but those of God.

"Anyone who approaches this august Sacrament with special devotion and endeavors to return generous love for Christ’s own infinite love, will experience and fully understand--not without spiritual joy and fruit--how precious is the life hidden with Christ in God... for there is nothing more consoling on earth, nothing more efficacious for advancing along the road of holiness.

"Further, you realize, venerable brothers, that the Eucharist is reserved in the churches and oratories as in the spiritual center of a religious community or of a parish, yes, of the universal Church and of all humanity, since beneath the appearance of the species, Christ is contained, the invisible Head of the Church, the Redeemer of the World, the Center of all hearts...

"From this it follows that the worship paid to the Divine Eucharist strongly impels the soul to cultivate a ‘social’ love... Let us consider as our own the interests of the community, of the parish, of the entire Church, extending our charity to the whole world, because we know that everywhere there are members of Christ".12

"We may have to face many sufferings; we will not be harmed. We are being protected by our heavenly Mother, she spreads her mantle over us. We must surrender to the Heart of Jesus and to the Heart of Mary. We must be deeply united in Their Hearts. We must meditate on the presence of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit within us. We must pray for the grace to know and love God more. We should pray to the Father, in union with Jesus in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, in the Holy Spirit, through the powerful intercession of the Virgin Mary."

His Body, the Church

I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd is one who lays down his life for his sheep. The hired man, since he is not the shepherd and the sheep do not belong to him, abandons the sheep and runs away as soon as he sees a wolf coming, and then the wolf attacks and scatters the sheep; this is because he is only a hired man and has no concern for the sheep. I am the good shepherd; I know my own and my own know me, just as the Father knows me and I know the Father; and I lay down my life for my sheep. (Jn 10:11-151)

Yes, the Good Shepherd has laid down His life for us. He gave His life so that we might have life in Him. This life we gloriously possess in Christ, we live within the Church. The Church herself came forth from the pierced side of Jesus. Vatican II tells us: "For it was from the side of Christ as He slept the sleep of death upon the cross that there came forth the wondrous sacrament which is the whole Church."2

Mary speaks:      Please send these writings
                                to the priests.
                            It is necessary that the
                                times be connected.
                            (time of Fr. Carter's writings and Rita's writings)


March 15, 2002 After Mass

                I just wanted to be alone with Him after communion. I wanted
            intimacy with Him. I can go so deeply in an ecstatic experience
            with Him. I want to be in such deep union with Him in my heart. When 
            I am one with Him I feel so one with the souls of the earth.
            I feel one with those in the Church. I feel one with His chosen priests.
            I long for the deep oneness amongst the people of the earth, as
            He desires. My oneness with Him is always in that deep connection
            with the Universal Church. My oneness reaches such heights in these
            ecstatic experiences where I am so one with the Father, knowing
            Him so intimately as His little child and loving so deeply all souls,
            wanting so deeply in my soul the Father's will for all souls of
            the earth.
                My very deep connection is in such oneness with God, Father,
            Son and Holy Spirit, I exist so deeply in God in the Mass, I want
            what He wants, my prayer so deep within me is for the will
            of God on this earth.
                And I cannot help but constantly, incessantly tell God of my
            deep, deep, burning love for Him at Mass. I am so united to God, I
            know each Person so deeply and so intimately, the depth of this
            union so far beyond this pen and paper. It is in knowing each
            Person so intimately, in loving God more deeply every moment
            of my existence here on earth that I relate so deeply with Him in
            this Most Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
                My depth of union and my knowledge of the Father ever deepens
            my desire for completeness with my God is the thirsting
            within my soul.
                My relationship with Jesus, my beloved Spouse, my Divine Bridegroom
            takes on a deeper meaning every moment of my existence. My journey
            into the spiritual life ever deepens. The flooding love within my
            soul for God in the Mass I cannot ever explain. The Holy Spirit
            fills my soul with the deepened presence of God's love.



March 15, 2002 continues

               I am one in God. I want a deeper fullness in His divine Life. 
            I want completeness in Him. My heart longs for the beatific vision.
            My God! I love Him so much. My deep love I cannot express.
                I am taken into ecstasy in Him. My burning desire
            for God in the Eucharist is so strong, I want Him, I 
            love Him, I want His Body and His Blood. I want this
            intimacy with my God.
                My soul cries for mercy for all the souls of the earth -
            "Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world 
                have mercy on us."
            "Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world
                have mercy on us."
            "Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world
                grant us peace."

            At the beginning of Mass, we beg for grace to be released,
                with all my heart I cry to our God.
            Oh my tongue is parched and my soul longing for God.
            I cry the day long for grace to be outpoured on the hungry
            I feel so much depth in my heart when I communicate with Him.
            I pray for the souls of the earth and our priests and our
                Church and I know He hears me.
            This is the promise God gave to Fr. Carter for those who pray
                the Shepherds of Christ prayers.


13th Promise

Jesus speaks: "...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."

— July 31, 1994


March 15, 2002 continues

               To those Churches who pray these prayers Jesus has given
            so many promises.

            Look at this my faithful ones.
            Do you think God would give such a sign for no reason.


July 5, 2000


March 15, 2002 continues

               And He picked a priest in good standing, author of all
            these books on the spiritual life to carry the
            It is intimacy we all crave and
                God wants this intimacy with men.
            This is the message.
            The sickness is this: many seek intimacy, they
                crave this, but they look in the wrong places.
            Jesus promised Fr. Carter greater intimacy to those
                who pray the prayers.
            This is about this ever deeper union with the Father, Son
                and Holy Spirit our souls crave.
