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.

July 28, 2001

Jesus speaks:   I tell you to write everyday to the Father. Tell Him of
                            the good things in your life. Thank Him for the
                            blessings. So many people have a negative attitude,
                            it is a habit, they have allowed themselves to always
                            look for the negative in everything.
                            I send them such gifts and they look for reasons
                            why they have been persecuted. They give into
                            thoughts satan helps to create to block the
                            peace and harmony they could have.

                         In a community one person who feels cheated and
                            is discontented can hurt everyone else. You
                            think that your bad mood is only yours, but
                            you spread a dark cloud wherever you go, you
                            have a tense body, you want someone to make
                            you happy.

                            If you truly want to model your lives after Mine
                                how would you act? Would I act like you?
                                Do you build up the community or are you
                                there to get your unmet needs from childhood
                                filled? Are you there looking for love and
                                acceptance in people? Growing in the
                                spiritual life means you are not attached
                                to others. Do the way others treat you determine
                                your moods? Do you see others as loving and
                                accepting you? Or do you separate yourselves
                                from them in your mind, thinking they are thinking
                                things about you, they may not even be thinking,
                                and then taking offense to the other because
                                of your own thoughts.

                            The devil is cunning. He wants division amongst
                                people. Hell is total isolation.

                            You enter a room. What are you thinking about
                                your relationship with other people in the 
                                room? Do you enter to spread My light 
                                to all? Do you want peace? Do you
                                examine your conscience? Are you judging
                                others? Do you truly want the world to be
                                one? Do you want all to live in love? Do you
                                want all to be as you think they should be?
                                Are you in competition with your brothers?
                                Are you jealous?

                            I come to you today to tell you to watch how many
                                of the thoughts you give into thinking about how
                                people like you or not that lead you to feel 
                                disharmony with others.
                            You could have positive thoughts, thank your
                                God for His gifts.
                            It offends Me so much, when I give a soul
                                special graces to help them grow closer to
                                Me and they become prideful and think they
                                are better than their brothers. You are what you
                                are because of My grace.

                            My apostles, I have given you special graces to lead
                                you into deeper holiness. You can pray as
                                Shepherds of Christ and be intercessors for
                                the priests, the Church and the world.

                            Don't think I have called you so you can use others
                                to fill your unmet needs and then you just
                                sit back and complain you never have enough.

                            Look at John, he was called, his whole life in all
                                his relationships he never got along. In all
                                the people he lived with it was always the
                                other person's problem. Now he enters a
                                community, he tries the same tactics, he
                                feels he is cheated, he never has enough, he 
                                wants people to give him the love he craves.
                                He doesn't feel good inside. He criticizes
                                others because he doesn't feel good inside.
                                He creates division and a dark cloud
                                every day. He plays little games of power
                                because he really doesn't want to be
                                under anyone in authority. He tries to discredit
                                the authority. He is really causing the disharmony
                                just as he did in every relationship he ever
                                had. He sees himself as unloving and unaccepted,
                                then he puts the person, whoever it is, in his
                                same story. He thinks he is the one persecuted, others
                                are the ones not giving him enough love and

                            Will a needy child ever be filled? They go from one
                             relationship to another. Every time they get close
                             to others in a family setting in relationships
                             or community life, they try to mold the players to
                             their dysfunctional thinking. They put themselves
                             in the place as one being persecuted and unloved,
                             then all they need to do is put the others into place
                             and they try to play the same game every where
                             they go. They cause pressure in every situation
                             because they do not seek harmony, they just
                             want someone making them feel good.

                            The hungering inside a soul will never be satisfied
                                completely on this earth and it can only be
                                satisfied by God.

                            It angers Me when I give you such gifts and you
                                are so ungrateful. Some want relationships
                                that are slavishly dependent (Messenger: Father Carter used   
                                this term in Response to God's Love). They are jealous,
                                they are never satisfied, they really don't come
                                to give themselves completely to Me. They have
                                an ulterior motive. They want to be satisfied
                                and filled here below.

                            Lets talk about John. He can come to serve and
                                give himself to the job or he can always be
                                ready to run. How is your attitude?

                            Do you bring a lot of baggage with you and try
                                to fit others into your patterns of living
                                so you can act in your persecuted mode?

                            Are you always dissatisfied?

                            Are the only times you are happy when you feel you
                                are receiving love from others, then when
                                they leave to do God's will, you get angry?
                                You cannot possess them. (This is being
                                slavishly dependent)

                            The bottom line is this, you must want God's will
                                for yourself and others. You cannot, cannot
                                control others with a poutty attitude. How do
                                you think I acted?
                           How is your peace?

                            You want to have loving relationships in which
                                you tenderly love one another, but living
                                your life expecting someone some human 
                                person to come on a white horse to make you
                                live happily-ever after is not going to
                                happen with human men.

                           You were created by God, you were created to
                                be filled only by God, the craving in your
                                soul for completeness is real, you will
                                always seek completeness found only
                                in God. You live in a desert land here
                                below. The more you know Me, the more
                                you want Me and want to be satisfied.
                                It is suffering to want God so much and
                                not be able to have Him as you crave
                                here below.
                                I want you to want Me. I give great graces
                                when you endure the suffering.
                                I want you to love Me and tell Me you
                                love Me so much.

                            You want to be satisfied here below. You are
                                only satisfied by Me. You were created this way.

                            My Blue Books say - "Feed the Hungry", Feed the

                            You are hungry for Me.

                            The television, the movies, the media, all teach
                                the story you can find satisfaction in
                                one human person here below.

                            In songs and television and movies people are
                                brainwashed into thinking, sex, another
                                human person, money, acceptance,
                                power will make them happy.

                            Happiness is found in God.
                            You were created by God, for God.

                            Oh please, people in families, in love relationships,
                                in communities, quit blaming others
                                for your bad moods.

                            Thank your God for the gifts you are given.
                                Wear a smile.
                                Offer up your suffering.
                                If you enter a relationship and you think it
                                is God's will you are in it, whether in marriage
                                or religious life, work in love to make
                                it work.

                            Some people will just keep draining the life from the
                                others. No matter what they are given it is
                                never enough. They can never be satisfied,
                                They are not thankful and they are looking
                                for some human person to fill their
                                craving for love inside.

                            My Movement is a Movement of love.
                            I teach lessons of love.
                            How can you lead the world into oneness when
                                you yourself have such disharmony in
                                your hearts?

                            Satan is trying to get you to go against God's will.
                            You are constantly at battle.
                            Don't you see the battle?
                            Don't you know joy is inside of you?
                            Your disposition is the biggest block.
                            Why do you make yourself superior by
                                judging others?
                            You have a lot to learn, but you won't even
                                look at yourself humbly.

                            Many are pompous and arrogant and still 
                                see themselves as holy.

                            I want a gentle, loving heart.

                            My question to you will be when you die

                                    How did you love Me?
                                    How did you love one another?
                                    How did you build up the body?

                            I am the Almighty God.



1 Corinthians 13: 2

. . . and though I have all the faith necessary to move mountainsóif I am without love, I am nothing. 



July 28, 2001 message continues

Jesus speaks:      I want you holy.

                            In suffering you can be deeply united to Me.

                            You can suffer and whine and give up the opportunity
                                to help bring down great graces.

                            Pray for your blind earth.

                            Pray for the men that will not even open up to My
                                grace to help them. They live to promote
                                themselves here below.



From a Lenten homily by Father Carter, March 24, 2000

Live in the Moment

    Todayís Gospel in its story certainly points ahead to Jesus in His Passion and death. And as we read passages such as this during the Lenten season, we are reminded once again that the Church in her Liturgy of the Word gives us an opportunity to undergo a purification, an ever deepening cleansing of ourselves so that we may be a more fit instrument for receiving the great graces which are to be given to us at the time of the Resurrection memorial on Easter. And so all in all, Lent is a time of purification to prepare us for ever-greater gifts of the Lord. Itís a time of self-discipline, a time to renew our efforts to be self-disciplined in the service of the Lord. Self-discipline is an aspect of purification. And I suggest that one of the most difficult acts of self-discipline in the spiritual journey is to concentrate on the present moment. We have a very strong tendency to disregard the importance of the present moment by focusing in a wrong way on the past or in a wrong way on the future. There are proper occasions for thinking of the past and the future. For example, we have to learn from the past and we have to prepare for the future, but our great emphasis has to be upon the present. There is a Latin axiom which says, age quod agis, age quod agis, which means: do what you are doing, concentrate on the present. And of course we are familiar with that term in the history of spirituality: the sacrament of the present moment. And so the discipline of Lent certainly encourages us to include in a deeper self-discipline a greater determination to get as much as we can out of the present moment. People with a terminal illness have an opportunity as they prepare for death for increased prayer, contrition, love of God. However, some are taken very, very quickly. But for those who have the opportunity of knowing with some certainty the time of their death, Iím sure as they look back on their lives, they are saddened by the many times they did not use time and opportunities for the service of the Lord properly, and are overjoyed at those times in which they did use the present opportunity properly. A great means we have of living in the present properly is a greater focus upon our Lord. For if I have that awareness of the fact I am united with Jesus here and now, why should I be concerned so much about the future or the past? Yes, a great help in living in the present and deriving all the good we can from it for ourselves and others is an ever greater focus upon Jesus, because the more I focus upon Jesus and the more I live with Him in the present moment, the more I am satisfied with the present moment. And so let us in our Lenten activity resolve to grow in that self-discipline - which is very difficult at times - to really live in the present with the fullness of our being as much as is possible, with the help of Godís grace. Now is the day of salvation. Now is the day of salvation.

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.

Mary speaks: 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.
