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 2 very urgent intentions.

        Pray for 1 personal intention.

        Pray for a particular bishop and cardinal.

        Pray for the pope.

        Pray for all the bishops of the world.

Jesus speaks:     Do you know what it is to love 
                                and give and love and
                                give and be rejected.

                            Oh My precious souls, I give you
                                Myself in the Eucharist, Body,
                                Blood, Soul and Divinity.

                            Oh My beloved souls, I am God.

                            Oh My souls, I speak to you, but
                                you do not hear.

                            You have persecuted My Church,
                                My beloved bride.

                            You have slandered My Mother
                                and your Mother, the Mother
                                I gave you as I hung
                                dying on the cross.

                            Oh My Church, I speak here
                                and I am ignored.

                            I was mocked and spit on by
                                the men I loved.

                            Oh I send you these gifts in
                                My Priestly Newsletter.

                            Oh My men I write to you.

                            I give you My letters of love in
                                God's Blue Book and these
                                messages and you treat them
                                like dirt.

                            Oh My men, could a math teacher
                                write so profoundly and

                            Oh We give you the Virgin
                                Mary building and you are
                                too busy to take notice.

                            Oh My men, I am rejected this

                                day, my messenger, I allow

                                you to experience this rejection

                                that you will know some of

                                the pain I felt in the garden.

                                Oh how I suffered for the likes

                                    of you.

                            And you, My beloved priest—

                                Do you treasure your priesthood?

                            Or do you listen to the people of

                                the world who discredit Me!!

                            Oh My earth, I cry, I cry to 

                                thee and you will not hear Me.

                            Your ears are plugged.

                            Your eyes are blind.

                            Your pride is a pride that is

                                not to My liking.

                            Oh Prideful men.

                            My Name has been so hideously


                            The Eucharist is not treasured.

                            I cry to you to listen to Me.

                            I give you this as a sign of

                                My Movement Shepherds 

                                of Christ.

                            I give you My Priestly Newsletter

                                for your priests.

                            I give you these prayers to

                                be prayed daily for your

                                priests, the Church and the


                            Oh your life is but a breath and

                                in moments it is taken from

                                you and you are taken from

                                your place.

                            Oh that you would open your

                                hearts and listen to Me, but

                                you have rejected Me.

                            You do not promote My Priesthood.

                            Look at how Singers and Rock Stars

                                promote their songs, some

                                so vile.

                            Oh My men you are given such

                                gifts in My Priesthood.

Jesus speaks:     Oh My men are you pompous and

                                arrogant, seeking your treasure

                                here below.

                            Like the blowing wind and the

                                waves at sea, they come and they go.

                            You come to this earth and you

                                leave and the only seeds you

                                plant that last forever to bring

                                happiness to men are the ones 

                                that promote My kingdom.

                            You are here but a short while

                                and then you are gone,

                                your body, you deemed so important,

                                rots beneath the ground and

                                you can never live those days


                            When you go to bed tonight, those

                                moments of the day are gone


                            Like seeds planted in the hearts

                                they can spread the good news

                                of the Kingdom.

Genesis 9: 13-15

I now set my bow in the clouds and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth. When I gather the clouds over the earth and the bow appears in the clouds, I shall recall the covenant between myself and you and every living creature, in a word all living things, and never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all living things.

August 8, 2002

Messenger:        Dear Jesus,

                                You are what my heart desires.
                                You fill me with your love.
                                    33 years
                                Oh He is the bridegroom.
                                He is the one who adorns His bride
                                    in the most beautiful attire.
                                The finest silk, the richest linens,
                                    pearls of a treasure no one
                                    could describe.

                                How would God dress His bride
                                    for Their marriage?

                                He would crown her with a crown
                                    of beautiful flowers.

                                He is attentive to her every need,
                                    but this is the gift He gives

                                He gives her a gift that leads her
                                    to deeper intimacy with Him.
                                He wore a crown of thorns,
                                    He wore a purple dirty robe,
                                    His body was beaten.

                                When his legs ached from the weight
                                    of the cross, he walked on until
                                    He fell.

                                Oh, it is a journey here below.
                                Every day may seem a day of struggle
                                    and suffering.

                                Where are the flowers and the rich
                                    linen for His bride?

                                Oh but He says it is in the suffering
                                    you are brought closer to Me.

                                He may strip us of those we feel close
                                He may allow our legs to ache and our
                                    heart to feel broken and in
                                    the thorns we reach for the

                                We see Him our Bridegroom, the
                                    one with the deepest love, the
                                    one with His arms open wide.

                                We see Him adorned in a red garb
                                    and His white tunic, arms
                                    outstretched always waiting for
                                    us to come.
                                    His eyes are gentle, soft and
                                    His Heart burns on His chest
                                        with a golden glow and
                                        His Heart is surrounded not
                                        by a wreath of flowers, but
                                        a crown of thorns.

                                    His Heart has a pierced mark and
                                        Blood drips from His Heart.

                                    The day is a day of closeness with
                                        our beloved God, our
                                        Beloved Jesus and His Sacred

                                    When I looked for the love my heart
                                        craved, I saw that only He
                                        could give me what I desired.

                                    I ask what is life and I know
                                        the life I seek is life in Him.

                                    I know He fills me with love.
                                    He is the Divine Bridegroom,
                                        I am His bride.

                                    I seek, I want, my heart is filled
                                        with a desire to be filled
                                        with His deep love.

                                    I hunger, I thirst, I want Him and
                                        His love.

                                    Oh we do not know the gifts God has
                                        for those who love and serve
                                        the Lord.

                                    This is the day the Lord has made,
                                        let us rejoice and be glad.

                                    What we are dealt today may be a
                                        thorn, it may seem of tremendous
                                        proportion and yet we see the
                                        Savior, His Head crowned with
                                        thorns, His Heart pierced with
                                        a lance.

                                    We see the thorns that surround His
                                        burning Sacred Heart.

                                God is Love.

                                    I see the evil in the world and I feel
                                        overwhelmed and saddened.

                                    I want the Reign of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

                                    I want all the men of the earth to make
                                        the Sacred Heart the King and Center
                                        of their hearts.

                                    I long for this.

                                    I long for completeness in Him.

                                    I feel I am in a desert land.

                                    I feel my heart is so empty at times,
                                        longing to be filled by Him.

                                    I see the emptiness it seems of so many,
                                        their focus on all the sports and
                                        bizarre movies and the focus on the
                                        lives of their movie heroes and singers,
                                        many who live very unholy lives.

                                Our model is Christ.
                                Jesus is the Divine God.
                                We don't need our children trying to
                                    model their lives after some actors
                                    and singers and talk-star hosts.

                                It is serious.

                                I see Jesus hanging on a cross.

Messenger:            Well I don't even know if I should
                                    say this, but in about a week
                                    3 big windows bigger than a
                                    door just broke in the
                                    Virgin Mary building.

                                The last was today over the front door—
                                    very large, glass was all over.

                                Today is my birthday.

                                I want to put the letters I received
                                    in my fax and e-mail just since I
                                    have been gone a few days.

                               On August 5 right before the prayer
                                    service 6:00 a whole glass
                                    was knocked out at the
                                    building—much bigger than
                                    a door.

                                Well, who notices the gift God has
                                    given us?

                                A handful of people come daily.

                                We pray fervently every day at Mary's
                                    Image Building at 6:20.

                                What a gift God has given the earth
                                    a sign and who really cares?

    Loving greetings to you from Bishop _____.

    Received your kind letter and the parcel of Newsletter Book II specially sent for me. Thank you for the same. Previously I had been receiving the Newsletter for my priests in the diocese. I am at the receipt of the red Associates Prayer Manual (prayer for priests) too. I will be happy with you kind help, to translate these books of course with the Imprimatur into our _____ language, which is known as the Italian of the East, so that the books may reach to every corner of this region and thus people making use of the books pray for the priests. I too feel that all must pray for the priests and for his holiness.

    I would be happy to join with the mission of Fr. Edward J. Carter. In the meantime you please send me another set of 100 books II for my religious sisters and brothers in the region.

Assuring my prayers and blessings for your prayer mission, I remain.

PSALM 44 (V 43)

National lament

For the choirmaster     Of the sons of Korah     Poem

God, we have heard for ourselves, 
our ancestors have told us, 
of the deeds you did in their days, 
in days of old, by your hand. 

To establish them in the land you drove out nations, 
to make room for them you harried peoples. 
It was not their own sword that won the land, 
nor their own arms which made them victorious, 
but your hand it was and your arm, 
and the light of your presence, for you loved them. 

You are my king, my God, 
who decreed Jacob’s victories; 
through you we conquered our opponents, 
in your name we trampled down those who rose up against us. 

For my trust was not in my bow, 
my victory was not won by my sword; 
it was you who saved us from our opponents, 
you who put to shame those who hate us. 
Our boast was always of God, 
we praised your name without ceasing.

Yet now you have abandoned and humiliated us, 
you no longer take the field with our armies, 
you leave us to fall back before the enemy, 
those who hate us plunder us at will. 

You hand us over like sheep for slaughter, 
you scatter us among the nations, 
you sell your people for a trifle 
and make no profit on the sale. 

You make us the butt of our neighbours, 
the mockery and scorn of those around us, 
you make us a by–word among nations, 
other peoples shake their heads over us. 

All day long I brood on my disgrace, 
the shame written clear on my face, 
from the sound of insult and abuse, 
from the sight of hatred and vengefulness. 

All this has befallen us though we had not forgotten you, 
nor been disloyal to your covenant, 
our hearts never turning away, 
our feet never straying from your path. 
Yet you have crushed us in the place where jackals live, 
and immersed us in shadow dark as death. 

Had we forgotten the name of our God 
and stretched out our hands to a foreign god, 
would not God have found this out, 
for he knows the secrets of the heart? 
For your sake we are being massacred all day long, 
treated as sheep to be slaughtered. 

Wake, Lord! Why are you asleep? 
Awake! Do not abandon us for good. 
Why do you turn your face away, 
forgetting that we are poor and harrassed? 

For we are bowed down to the dust, 
and lie prone on the ground. 
Arise! Come to our help! 
Ransom us, as your faithful love demands.

Dear Mr. Wieckert,

I am in receipt of your letter dated 13.5.2002 which seems to have reached me very late, indeed, just a few days ago.

I would like to say the following:

  1. I was very sad to learn of the death of Fr. Edward Carter. He died in the year 2000 but I had not realized this till I got you letter. I think Fr. Carter was an extraordinary man, doing an extraordinary work. I am so glad that you and others continue this inspiring ministry.
  2. Over the past few years, I have been the recipient of many kindnesses from your organization which I wish to acknowledge with warm thanks and appreciation.
  3. I feel sorry that, for various reasons, I can do little to help financially. However, if I can offer some masses (about 15) for the intentions for your organization for which stipends may be available at your end and which could be used as a contribution to your finances, I would do this with great joy. Please let me know if this helps.

Please convey my warmest good wishes and thanks to all the members of your organization. May Lord continue to use Fr. Carter, in his newfound union with Him to renew the priesthood across the entire world.


                                                                 Auxiliary Bishop

Object: Your letter of July 16th.

Dear friend in Christ,

        I have just received the "Shepherds of Christ Associates Prayer Manual" and I heartedly thank you for it. Of course, I agree with you to "help begin prayer chapters praying for the priests, the Church and the world".

        May I recommend to you, in a special way, the six deacons I shall have to ordain to the priesthood next January 2003 and also eleven seminarians who, normally, will be ordained as priests by the beginning of the year 2004.

        Once again, thank you for thinking of me, my priests, my diocese and the whole world. May the Lord Jesus Christ bless you. May the heart of the Virgin Mary protect you always.

        Yours very prayerfully,

        + Bishop of _____

Dear John,

Thank you for your letter. I am pleased to know the wonderful work you are continuing to do what Fr. Edward J. Carter, S.J. was doing during his life time that is Editing Newsletters: Shepherds of Christ's Ministries. Since a couple of years I was getting the packet which I was distributing to my priests. My priests were using it profitably for their own spiritual life. Lately I have received a few copies- Shepherds of Christ spirituality 2 Newsletters which I am sharing with my priests. Thank you very much for the photograph the image of Our Lord. It is indeed wonderful that the image of the Lord appears in the background of the building. I am sure the Lord is telling something to the Church specially to the Clergy all over the world. These days we have been challenged by the Media with the publicity against priests in the United States. I wonder how much truth is in such negative publicity except to denigrate the Clergy. The apostolate of Fr. Carter which you are continuing through the Newsletters contacting 75 thousand priests in 90 Countries in several languages is indeed God's work. I only encourage you and pray for your work.

Please continue to send literature on Shepherds of Christ or any material which helps my priests spiritually. I thank you and remain grateful.

Yours sincerely,

+Bishop of ____
