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.

The message that follows was given on August 27, 1997 at a Shepherds of Christ rosary at Tom's farm before the river.

Mary'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 August 27, 1996 message.)

August 26, 1999

Mary speaks: My sweet children,

Do not be divided.

Listen to my Son. He loves you so much.

Please listen and help me.

I cry, my children. I cry to you.

It is not too late.

Do not block my Son's Movement.

1) Pray the prayers at 6:20 p.m. as follows: Novena to my Spouse, the Holy Spirit, from Jesus for healing and oneness.

2) Pray the Shepherds of Christ Prayers (Shepherds of Christ Prayer Manual.)

3) Pray the rosary.

4) Read the Commandments.

Come and pray at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center, if they will comply, and go to Mass.

Help to circulate my Son's prayer manual and priestly newsletter.

Help to get the rosary program in schools and the Parent and Children's Rosary Book. They have the Imprimatur.

Please help me, my children.

Help me, my children. My Son gives His message of intimate love in God's Blue Books to lead you to the Eucharist.

I love you so much. I thank you for all you have done. I do not scold you . I ask you to follow the Father's plan. Please. Souls are at stake. Help me.

I am Mary, Our Lady of the Holy Spirit.

Jesus on the cross at Immaculata Church

On December 5, 1996, Jesus
appeared dying on the cross
His mouth moving. Later He said

"no one was listening."

Crucifix at St. Clare Convent Chapel

August 20, 1997, Jesus appeared
transfigured on the cross at
St. Gertrude's Church. The Father spoke.
He said: This is My beloved Son,
in Whom I am well pleased, listen to Him.

August 18, 1999

Messenger: Jesus and Mary would like the Sorrowful Mother statue sculptured and put beneath the cross. This statue is now made of wood. It should be done as closely as possible to the Sorrowful Mother at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center. She says she is the Lady Clothed with the Sun, now the Sorrowful Mother, also the Lady of the Holy Spirit.

She wishes pictures be made of this statue and smaller statues made like this one and made available for all. Ask Harold to take the pictures. Also pictures of other statue. Mary is Our Lady of China in China, Indiana, she is the Lady of Grace. China, Indiana is a house of grace. The Centers are places to bring forth great fruit. This requires water. He supplies it.

Ask Felix if he will do the Sorrowful Mother after the crucifix. She wants to stand beneath the cross of her son in Clearwater, Florida. Mary says, "Who can help me to do this for I am sorrowful to tears?"

Mary speaks: I wish this request to be made public August 27, 1999, with my message. It should say: I will stand beneath the cross of my Son in Clearwater, Florida, as Our Lady of Sorrows.

I love you, Mary.

Excerpts from August 12, 1999 Daily Message

River view from Tom's Farm

Messenger: This is the site of the rosary at Tom's farm
August 13, 1996, and August 27, 1996.

Excerpt from August 12, 1999 Daily Message

Messenger: On the morning of August 12, 1996, I was told to go to Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center. There in those early morning hours Mary appeared all night. I remember the darkness of the Sorrowful Mother Chapel, black, and I only saw the light of Mary. She appeared in that same glorious light of hers, light like fluorescent, but not like that at all because it is like nothing I have ever seen. I cried out to her and begged the Father to please help me to do what They had asked me, and all of us, to do. I felt I prayed as never before.Sorrowful Mother Statue at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center

The next morning of the 13th of August Mary appeared again in the same place for several hours in the same exact setting in that white light in the darkened Sorrowful Mother Chapel in the corner. In the late afternoon of the 13th, I would go to the Sorrowful Mother Chapel again.

The Eucharist was exposed and the whole front of the chapel was covered with a celestial aura and she appeared again. This time the light and the aura were a golden light, almost like a gold glistening veil across the whole front of the chapel in front of the exposed Eucharist and before Mary. I did not want to leave there. I drove to the rosary at Tom's farm, the mikes for the rosary were missing. The younger shepherds had to go to the store to get some mikes. John Weickert was there for the first time on the farm. I asked him to say the 7 Sorrows of Mary. What appeared to me to be a mixed-up situation without the mikes and equipment turned out to be a night of great grace. I didn't know all what was happening. Here is an account of what happened to two others there at the rosary. It is accounted because Father Carter asked that it be written down.

Second Excerpt from August 12, 1999 Daily Message

Messenger: Mary spoke in the rosary. She gave the following message at the beginning of the mystery of the Visitation.

Mary had been rather silent in the rosaries for much of the year since about February, except for a rosary she delivered April 25, 1996, for the youth at a Junior Shepherds of Christ Meeting.

It was a gift when Mary spoke that evening August 13, 1996, (she would deliver Mary's Message of August 27, 1996, two weeks later on Tom's farm.

Mary's Message is the message she wishes circulated with her image in Florida).

The message that follows is the message Mary delivered August 13, 1996 on the farm after some silence in the rosary. Very soon John Weickert became our President.

Excerpt from May 22, 1999 Daily Message

Excerpt from May 21, 1999 Daily Message - Friday before Pentecost - 9:00 p.m.

Mary speaks: As my Son has told you in an earlier message:

(Messenger: I received this strong message WITH the intensity of knowing His suffering.)

Jesus speaks: I opened My Heart raw in these Blue Book messages and they persecuted My messenger and rejected My letters of LOVE.

Oh, My Heart in the garden was torn to shreds and I sweat Blood for the day, today, when heaven would give such gifts and be rejected by senseless, cold-hearted men.

They smite Me, they reject My messages. You think they hurt you, they hurt Me. I am the Almighty all-Perfect sinless God and the men reject Me and My Mother.

I opened Myself raw in every love letter and they reject Me.

Be one with Me, experience the rejection I felt in the garden. I sweat BLOOD!

Can you not watch and wait with Me one hour when I remain with you today?

YOU SAY, "NO" TO ME.Jesus on the cross at Immaculata Church

I experienced the pain of the garden.

I hung for 3 hours on the cross.






Question: How do I feel when I open myself raw in love and am rejected?

May 13, 1997 at Tom's Farm

Jesus speaks: In the Fourth Mystery of the rosary, My messenger accounted the happenings at Conyers, Georgia, May 13, 1993, when the wind came up and it looked as if the people would be blown off their feet. The sky was darkened with a white rim around the horizon. The message from Mary talked about going deeper and deeper into darkness.

The rain came down as in buckets and with great force and the wind blew.

At the end of the rosary on May 13, 1997 after reference to the Conyers event, a very similar experience happened at Tom's farm. The wind came up with enormous strength and it blew everything over. My statue of My Sacred Heart which I requested be brought to Tom’s farm for the 13th beginning in October was blown over and the statue of My Mother fell to the ground. She was decapitated, her head turned face up on the ground. She was broken in her Immaculate Heart.

Messenger: I must note here that we went to Tom's farm on October 13, 1996, as requested by Jesus. We continued to meet there on November 13, 1996, December 13, 1996, and January 13, 1997. On February 13, 1997 we met at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center.  We met also on March 13, 1997 and April 13, 1997.  On May 13, 1997, the Holy Spirit Center had another engagement scheduled and Jesus told us to meet on Tom's farm.

Jesus speaks: On this day May 13, 1997, the Shepherds of Christ Movement was notified for the third time they were not permitted to operate on the 13ths from My Mother’s House, Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center.

You are surrounded by the enemy on all sides. Your children are falling down dead in the streets. On March 17, 1999, I gave the following message concerning the children dying on the bus.

Excerpt from the March 17, 1999 Daily Message

Jesus speaks: When your children are poisoned and lying dead in the streets, will you listen?

If a bus falls over with school children, you cry out, "Oh the children died!"

America, My world, your children are dying a spiritual death and you are not crying.

You see only the physical suffering. My children, your children are being murdered in their hearts and souls. This is far worse than a death of the body.

Jesus speaks: Your children in schools are dying in their spiritual lives. Your world is full of wounded children of the Father. If they died today they would lose their souls forever.

I call on this May 13, 1999, for you to wake up, America. Mary appears on the building in Florida.

Jesus speaks: You do not know what makes peace and you have missed the visitation. A century of grace and visits from heaven, from Fatima to Clearwater, Florida, and you cry aloud in utter pain while the ancient serpent devours your young. You are all Our children. Your world is run amuck and you are dropping over dead, but you are holding on to your last piece of dust.

I WORK IN THE ELEMENTS, IN SICKNESS, so that you might see something.

But you are blinded and you will not listen to Me.

Jesus speaks: I quote from May 13, 1999, writing:

Say the Prayer for Union with Jesus.

Messenger: As I rode away from Conyers on that day, May 13, 1993, after the terrifying wind and rain, my tears were lifted and I felt peace. Likewise my children felt peace. We had been touched by Our Lady. I dictated the following message to one of my children. The child wrote the message in her little handwriting trying to follow as I dictated.

Second Excerpt from May 22, 1999 Daily Message

Messenger: This was the first message Jesus wished in God's Blue Book I. I had received written messages since October, 1991. This one, May 13, 1993, He said should be published in His book of love letters, God's Blue Book.

Jesus speaks: Mary appeared at Conyers, Georgia. On May 20, 1999, there was a shooting in Conyers, Georgia. I  referred to Conyers, Georgia, in the May 12, 1999 message. My messenger referred to Conyers, Georgia, on May 13, 1999.

You have missed your visitation. You are surrounded by the enemy on all sides.

Luke 19:41-44
Lament for Jerusalem

As he drew near and came in sight of the city he shed tears over it and said, ‘If you too had only recognised on this day the way to peace! But in fact it is hidden from your eyes! Yes, a time is coming when your enemies will raise fortifications all round you, when they will encircle you and hem you in on every side; they will dash you and the children inside your walls to the ground; they will leave not one stone standing on another within you, because you did not recognise the moment of your visitation.'

Third Excerpt from May 22, 1999 Daily Message

Jesus speaks: You MUST pray the rosary and teach your children to do so.

You must get your children to consecrate their hearts to the New Adam and the New Eve.


A message for the Earth from Jesus January 22, 1998

I am the Good Shepherd, these are My prayers, the prayers I give to help renew the Church and the world, all prayer chapters are asked to include these prayers (found in the Shepherds of Christ Prayer Manual). As My Apostles and Shepherds I ask you to encourage all existing Chapters to try to encourage all existing prayer groups to pray the Shepherds of Christ prayers. Encourage all Churches to pray these prayers. It is most urgent that the people of this earth concur with the Father's wishes to begin Prayer Chapters. This is an urgent request from the Good Shepherd. The flock will become one when they have given their hearts to Jesus and Mary. Encourage all priests to pray the Shepherds of Christ prayers. Your world will be lighted with great light as the people of this earth pray these prayers.

My promise is this to you My beloved earth: When you give your heart to Me and spread the devotion to My Sacred Heart, I will write your name In My Heart. I promise to give the greatest graces when you pray these prayers for renewal of the Church and the world and take all who pray them deeply into My Heart. The prayers I give will bring about the reign of My Sacred Heart and the triumph of Mary's Immaculate Heart. I am Jesus Christ, this is My message of January 22, 1998, Please circulate this message to your world. I am the Good Shepherd, I know Mine and Mine know Me and they follow Me. Grace My Shepherds, I will give you the greatest graces for spreading these words to this earth and to your Church. I love you, I am Jesus Christ, the Son of Man, it is the Plan of the Father that Prayer Chapters are begun immediately and the Priestly Newsletter is given to all priests. The Voice of the Good Shepherd speaks through it.


  1. Pray the daily rosary.
  2. Consecrate your hearts to my Heart and the Heart of my Son.
  3. Observe the First Saturday devotion.
  4. Make reparation to Our Hearts.

Our Lady of Clearwater Bluiding

Luke 19:42

...‘If you too had only recognised on this day the way to peace!…

Luke 19:44

...they will leave not one stone standing on another within you, because you did not recognise the moment of your visitation.’

Excerpts from March 14, 1999 Daily Message


Jesus speaks: My beloved ones, I plead for you to pray as I have asked at 6:20 p.m.

Excerpt from December 12, 1998 Daily Message

Messenger: I watched her as she appeared over 500 times, Our Lady of Light, wailing and crying every time we would meditate on "The Finding in the Temple" in the rosary. Swords pierced my heart, for she wailed aloud for the children of the earth and begged me, begged me to spread the consecration and the rosary to the youth of America and the world. Now I am in anguishing pain helping to spiritually bring forth the children, Mary's little precious ones, into greater spiritual light. I beg, I plead as I did August 12, 1996. Mary appeared all night on that date and I prostrated myself and begged and begged to the Father to help me.

She appeared for several hours August 13, 1996, in the early morning. It was dark outside both times. I cried aloud in pain as I looked at the Sorrowful Mother all lighted up with a sword in her Heart. Her face was sweet and beautiful and my heart hurt so bad I felt I could not suffer the pain.

I begged and cried to the Father as never before that night. I laid on the floor and I said, "I know this is the truth, I believe, help me, help me, help me."

Soon there would be a major event in the Movement. Our existing president, John W., took office at this time, and a beautiful woman, Mary R., came in to help with the school rosary program. I believed that the Father had answered my anguishing cries to Him that night.

On the Eve of August 13, 1996, before I went to Tom's farm for the rosary, I was in the Sorrowful Mother Chapel at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center. The Eucharist was exposed and it was about 5:00 p.m. I arrived to pray and the whole front of the room where Mary had appeared so many times was filled with a celestial aura, golden, as a golden veil, and she was adorned behind this veil. I saw light and beauty and the Consecrated Host in the monstrance before me. She appeared in such beauty and I cried. I cried and did not want to leave to go to the rosary. I experienced the presence of God there, and the beauty was so great I was awestruck and paralyzed, enveloped in ecstasy. I experienced His Presence, and saw the most glorious light.

Second Excerpt from March 14, 1999 Daily Message

Mary speaks: My children, I am Mary, your Mother. I appeared daily at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center from July 5, 1994, - September 5, 1995.

In the months of 1995, the last 9 months, I pleaded daily. I cried out in pain to reach my children. I warned, I asked that the children be given these rosaries. I asked that Junior Shepherds of Christ prayer chapters be begun there. I am pleading now, four years later, but my cries fall on deaf ears.

You have focused on every aspect of my messenger's life while your children have deteriorated before your face.

The funds are needed for the school rosary program. The children need to be protected from the evil one.

My adults, you are so foolish. You close your eyes and you go your merry way and I come as your spiritual Mother, pleading at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center. I wanted youth activities and rosaries at the Falmouth Farm, and now I plead in Florida, and you check out the messenger and block the Movement.

My beloved children, I cry for your little innocent ones that go to school, Catholic schools. There are some students there teaching your children to smoke "pot". Oh my poor "dumb" parents. You are so smart. I appeared as Our Lady of Fatima over 80 years ago and you will not listen yet. Pick your children up from the streets dead. You are not blocking my messenger. You block me and your children are poisoned in your schools.

I beg for Junior Shepherds of Christ chapters to be begun for the protection of your youth, and you turn your heads the other way and punish the solicitors.

Oh my foolish ones, it is too late, when for two years children have used drugs in which the intensity of the usage has increased and they become addicted and struggle their whole lives long, in and out of drug centers. Good children, ones from holy Catholic families that were taught to wash their hands and say please and thank you, but you as a family never knelt and taught them the rosary. Yes, you will suffer for not listening to me. You will watch your children die before your eyes, America.

My Catholic schools, when I warned you, you checked out the messenger. Out of jealousy, you blocked the message. You talk behind the back of the one I send, and since I did not appear to you, you ignore the message.

You are suffering today. Your youth need to be consecrated. I will crush the head of the serpent. You refuse to bring my youth to my Immaculate Heart to be protected.

In many Catholic high schools, you are turning out children with disconnected hearts. You send them off to college with a history of "pot" or what have you. When I told you at Fatima you must pray the rosary and give your hearts to me and to my Son, you ignored me.

Oh you think you are so smart. I CRY - I CRY - I CRY.
