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: Include Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center in 6:20 prayers.

Messenger:  Please pray for an important intention.

                  Please pray for 5 urgent intentions!

Pray for a special priest and Father Mike,
Spread the Blood of Jesus on all involved, cast the devil far
away, ask for the special coming of the Holy Spirit in a special way
and consecrate all hearts to the Sacred Heart and Immaculate Heart.

July 19th Holy Spirit Novena Scripture selection is Day 3 Period 2. The Novena Rosary Mystery for July 19th is Glorious.


Messenger: Our Lord wishes that we circulate 
                        the Priestly Newsletter book II 
                        to all the priests. 

                    We also have bills from the printing 
                        from the last two Newsletters. 

                    If you can help or know someone who 
                        can, please ask them. 

                    We are still short rosary beads for
                        the rosary makers for rosaries 
                        in the school for the month of October.

                    Our Lord would like us to purchase 
                        B&M printing. 

                    They have printed most of the materials 
                        you have received and want to work 
                        doing this work for Jesus.

                    Do you know anyone that can help us? 

                    One of the major expenses is printing. 
                        (They can also print books.)

July 18, 2001

Messenger:         So much opportunity for grace
                            is wasted. We must identify
                            our lives with Jesus.

                            Suffering teaches us patience.

                            Very much grace can be released
                                when we identify with Him
                                and accept our crosses,
                                our suffering.

                            Giving into our impatience can lead to
                                problems that can last a long time.

                            If we want to do something good, for example
                                go to Church, but we are forced by 
                                uncontrollable events to wait and 
                                are unable to go when we intended  
                                how do we handle it? How do we handle
                                pressure when we cannot do something we
                                thought we could do? How do we handle it?

                            Satan works in pressure. Satan tries to get us to give
                                into impatience. Do we ruin the whole vacation 
                                because someone is late?

                            When someone comes with an irritating
                                problem do we get upset?

                            Do we try to see what the problem is and
                                realize we must handle some problems?
                                Knowing about it might be a gift.

                            But we must be aware that satan can work in 
                                some situations that make us think
                                something is a problem that isn't.

                            Do we see only black and white and
                                all or nothing situations? Can we see
                                the goal and continue to work toward
                                the goal working around the obstacles?

                            Satan helps to create obstacles 
                                to block us.
                                We must work around them.



Call to apostles

Messenger:             How were you called?

                                Remember June 13, 2000

                                God gives extra special graces
                                    to servants and handmaids.

                                Jesus called the apostles.
                                    He calls us today to help in a 
                                        special way.

                                We were all given special talents.



July 17, 2001 - evening

Messenger:        I want to go to the spiritual

                                womb of my Mother and be more

                                purified. I want to be like Jesus.

                            I want the Holy Spirit to work in

                                her heart to mold me more 

                                in the image of Jesus.

                            Here is the image window.

Messenger:         "Blessed are thou among women and
                                blessed is the fruit of thy womb"



Luke 1: 46-56

The Magnificat

  And Mary said:

    My soul proclaims
        the greatness of the Lord
    and my spirit rejoices
        in God my Saviour;
    because he has looked upon
        the humiliation of his servant.
    Yes, from now onwards
        all generations will call me blessed,
    for the Almighty
        has done great things for me.
    Holy is his name,
    and his faithful love extends age after age
        to those who fear him.
    He has used the power of his arm,
    he has routed the arrogant of heart.
    He has pulled down princes
        from their thrones
            and raised high the lowly.
    He has filled the starving with good things,
        sent the rich away empty.
    He has come to the help
        of Israel his servant,
            mindful of his faithful love
    —according to the promise
        he made to our ancestors—
    of his mercy to Abraham
        and to his descendants for ever.

    Mary stayed with her some three months and then went home.

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).

July 17, 2001 - Second Message

Messenger:         Are we often complaining when we
                                are given so many gifts?

                            Am I caught up in others' behavior?

                            What about my behavior?

                            What about my faults?

                            How successful have I been in
                                changing others' behavior?



Excerpt from July 15, 2001 Daily Message


    A woman joined Alanon because she wanted
        to fix the alcoholic and her
        children who were affected.

    The first meeting she learned she needed to focus
        on herself. She had to examine her own behavior
        if she wanted to be happy.

Matthew 7: 1-5

     Do not judge, and you will not be judged; because the judgements you give are the judgements you will get, and the standard you use will be the standard used for you. Why do you observe the splinter in your brother’s eye and never notice the great log in your own? And how dare you say to your brother, "Let me take that splinter out of your eye," when, look, there is a great log in your own? Hypocrite! Take the log out of your own eye first, and then you will see clearly enough to take the splinter out of your brother’s eye.



Matthew 12: 33-37

Words betray the heart

‘Make a tree sound and its fruit will be sound; make a tree rotten and its fruit will be rotten. For the tree can be told by its fruit. You brood of vipers, how can your speech be good when you are evil? For words flow out of what fills the heart. Good people draw good things from their store of goodness; bad people draw bad things from their store of badness. So I tell you this, that for every unfounded word people utter they will answer on Judgement Day, since it is by your words you will be justified, and by your words condemned.’

Messages for the Elderly, Ill, and Homebound:



October 23, 1999

Jesus speaks: P_cruc.jpg (34723 bytes)

I was crucified. I DIED FOR YOU.


I want you to hear Me say over and over again to you, "I LOVE YOU", "I LOVE YOU",







Hear Me say this over and over again. Tell yourself all day,

"Jesus is with me now, Jesus loves me so much He died for me."

"Jesus wants me to be with Him in heaven, I will offer up my little trials for His Movement, Shepherds of Christ, and for souls and for the priests and the Church and the world.

"My life given as an offering to God can help the souls that are hurting. I can help the whole world by staying close to Jesus and offering up my life sufferings and joys for these intentions. My life is helping the world, the children, the Church, the priests."

Jesus speaks:

My sweet one, I love you so much, I love you so much, will you help Me today? Will you talk to Me? Oh, I want to be with you, you are so precious to Me. I love you so, so much, My beautiful soul. I love you, Jesus.

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.
