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.



Pray for the leaders of our country

Messenger:        My life centers around the Eucharist.

                            Oh the Mass.

                            I pray so deeply every day at Mass that the
                                Sacred Heart of Jesus will Reign
                                in all hearts of this earth.

                            I beg for truth to be in the hearts of
                                all men of this earth.

Messenger:         I am there at Mass.
                            I offer sacrifice.

                            I give myself so completely to God.

                            I am mindful of the whole earth at Mass and all
                                the souls of the earth.

                            I beg God for grace so the people of
                                this earth will know Jesus Christ,
                                the Son of God.

                            I cry, I want this so much and I know
                                that so many graces can be released
                                in the Mass.

                            I know the Power in the Mass.

                            I know the gift given to us in the priest
                                and the gift that he can celebrate Mass.



Revelation 12: 7-12

    And now war broke out in heaven, when Michael with his angels attacked the dragon. The dragon fought back with his angels, but they were defeated and driven out of heaven. The great dragon, the primeval serpent, known as the devil or Satan, who had led all the world astray, was hurled down to the earth and his angels were hurled down with him. Then I heard a voice shout from heaven, ‘Salvation and power and empire for ever have been won by our God, and all authority for his Christ, now that the accuser, who accused our brothers day and night before our God, has been brought down. They have triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word to which they bore witness, because even in the face of death they did not cling to life. So let the heavens rejoice and all who live there; but for you, earth and sea, disaster is coming—because the devil has gone down to you in a rage, knowing that he has little time left.’

Messenger:        I anticipate the great Feast of the Transfiguration,
                                August 6.

                            I anticipate the great Feasts in August of 
                                Mary and St. Dominic.

                            My life is centered in my God.

                            The Church is where I strongly encounter

                            The Church is so much a great gift.

                            I love the Mass so much.

                            I love the priest.

                            I thank God for the Mass and the priest.

                            I want young men to know about Jesus
                                and follow their vocation to be a
                                priest if God is calling them.

                            Oh my God, it is such an honor to be a priest.

                            Oh my God, it is such an honor for them
                                to celebrate Mass.

                            Oh my God, thank You for this Movement
                                and the prayers to pray for our
                                priests and our beloved Church.

                            I just cannot imagine how it would be to
                                not go to daily Mass.

                            I try to go two times a day when I can and I
                                pray with all my heart for this
                                world and for the souls of this earth
                                to know Jesus Christ and honor Him
                                as the Son of God.

                            Oh we take the gifts we are given for

                            I used to go to St. Xavier High School to a
                                little chapel with the Eucharist
                                and pray before the tabernacle.

                            Above me was a stained glass window
                                of St. Ignatius and St. Xavier and
                                their companions.

                            I would cry from the depth of my soul
                                for young men from this Jesuit
                                school to enter the priesthood if they
                                were being called.

                            I think there were about 1500 boys that
                                went to school there.

                            I wanted them and all Catholic boys schools
                                to tell the boys about this great gift
                                given to us in Jesus in the Eucharist.

                            I wanted them to encourage young men
                                to go to daily Mass there and pray for
                                the school and the boys and the world.

                            I wanted the Jesuits there to tell the boys
                                how wonderful it is to be a priest
                                and how great the gift is that a
                                man can become a priest and
                                say Mass.

                            Oh my people, the power in the Mass is
                                so great.

                            Oh my people, the gifts given to us in
                                our Church are so great.

                            In this time in our world, do you
                                not believe that Mary would
                                appear as she does here—now over
                                5 years daily—to lead the men of this
                                earth to her Son's Movement—Shepherds
                                of Christ—to pray for the priests, the
                                Church and the world?

                                 Do you not believe that with all the
                            fervent people praying, that God
                            wouldn't send messages to the earth,
                            with instructions how to pray for
                            our priests, the Church and the world?

                                Look at the world———

                                Have you prayed for help———

Messenger:         Do you see the sign God has given
                                to tell men He is speaking
                                here to get people to pray.

                            It was so frustrating when Mary
                                appeared daily for 14 months
                                at Our Lady of the Holy
                                Spirit Center.

                            But soon after that when people did not
                                do as Mary and Jesus asked, Mary
                                appeared on the building in
                                Clearwater, Florida.

                            Now here is how the image turns
                                as we pray the Shepherds of Christ
                                prayers on the 5th of each month
                                as Mary and Jesus have asked for.

                                the images go from deep rainbow
                                to golden.

                            I have felt this power there I

                                Apostle of the Eucharistic Heart
                                of Jesus.



Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus

My dear fellow Associate Members,

Jesus is calling special apostles to join a new division of the Shepherds of Christ Movement. Here is a message from Jesus given to Father Carter:

My beloved priest-companion, I am requesting that a new prayer movement be started under the direction of Shepherds of Christ Ministries. I am asking for volunteers who are willing to pray before the Blessed Sacrament for one hour, twice-weekly. Members of the Shepherds of Christ prayer chapters, as well as others, are to be invited to join this movement.

These apostles are to pray for the intentions I am giving you. For part of the hour they are to use the prayers of the Shepherds of Christ Associates Handbook. They may spend the rest of the hour as they so choose.

I will use this new prayer movement within My Shepherds of Christ Ministries in a powerful way to help in the renewal of My Church and the world. I will give great graces to those who join this movement. The name, Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus, is to be given to this movement.

I am inviting My beloved Rita Ring to be coordinator for this activity.

I pour out the great love of My Sacred Heart to all. I am Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the flock.

    This is indeed a special calling for us to unite in one heart with His Eucharistic Heart and pray for the following intentions:

  1. For the spread of the devotion to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary culminating in the reign of the Sacred Heart and the triumph of the Immaculate Heart.
  2. For the Pope.
  3. For all bishops of the world.
  4. For all priests.
  5. For all sisters and brothers in the religious life.
  6. For all members of the Shepherds of Christ Movement, and for the spread of this movement to the world.
  7. For all members of the Catholic Church.
  8. For all members of the human family.
  9. For all souls in purgatory.
