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.

Message given September 21, 1999

Messenger: We do not fully understand the power in the Mass and how we can be great intercessors pleading through her Immaculate Heart. This is a great way for us to approach the altar of Sacrifice, for we are the fallen children of Adam and Eve.

I know I can pray for God’s will this way and He hears me. I am a strong intercessor praying for souls, the priests, the Church and the world when I unite in such purity in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.

I know the oneness of a priest celebrating Mass in the country of China and me being a member of the body of Christ being connected to him in my daily prayer.

I know this place that I can be at from the experience December 15, 1995, when I was so existent in Him at Holy Cross-Immaculata Church. I was to the left of the cross that He later appeared on at the point of death on December 5, 1996.

And I hear Him call out so strong, so strong September 22, 1997:

Jesus speaks: "STIFF-NECKED, stiff-necked, stiff-necked. There will be a new heaven and a new earth. The old order will pass away. For they worshipped Me with their lips only and their hearts were far from Me.

I will rock the earth and bring the senseless men to their knees. They will learn to beg ‘LAMB OF GOD, YOU TAKE AWAY THE SINS OF THE WORLD, HAVE MERCY ON US!"

Their thoughts are far from me....

I am the LAMB OF GOD. I AM THE BRIDEGROOM OF THEIR SOULS -- of a country of stiffs, naked in their ways, their hearts are haughty, for they persist in their same ways.

They are resistant to change. They refuse to go to the Heart of My Mother, yet she is their Mother and Mother of the Church.

Oh, to a world of stiff-necked.... I give you this message. Look at My Body on the cross, it was broken and mutilated, it was constrained, it was the picture of torment and twisting.

I speak through these messages and you continue in your stiff-necked ways. Would the destruction of your temples bring you to your knees? Or should I destroy My own houses? Or would they get the message anyway, if I burned them down?

(Messenger: On September 22, 1997, He said this. I suffered for several days.  Then the basillica in Assisi was destroyed.)

Jesus speaks: I speak to be heard. I appeared on the cross with My mouth moving because no one was listening. I appeared on August 20, 1997, with the lights of glory and the Father gave this message: "This is My beloved Son, in Whom I am well pleased, listen to Him." Listen to Me. The priestly newsletter book and the Mass Book need to circulate.

Love is tender, from the heart. I gave to you so many messages. I speak to be heard, not ignored. I will rock them and they will suffer. I give to you this revelation as a gift. It is treated as a poison.  The remedy is these revelations. You are poisoned.

Men of the earth, I teach you about love but you, with your hardened hearts, filled with wounds, you know it all. You are not like children at all. You are wounded adults with hard hearts.

Excerpt from January 19, 1999 Daily Message;

Messenger: On September 22, 1997, He said, "Would the destruction of your temples bring you to your knees? Or should I destroy My own houses?"

I suffered and suffered for three days.

At the end of the week, an earthquake tore apart the Basilica in Assisi and a picture of St. Francis and St. Clare, a famous fresco, was on many of the newspapers around the world.

(end of January 19, 1999 excerpt)

Messenger: I have begged and pleaded to the Father.

Do you realize all the prayers that have not been prayed all over the world for our priests and the Church and the world because people have blocked us and not listened?

I speak clearly as a messenger from God. Please look at Mary on the building in Clearwater, Florida, isn’t this sign enough, after a century of Marian Apparitions, that we must do something?

Mary appears there to lead men to His Movement, Shepherds of Christ. She is teaching us to pray so that great grace will be released with our heartfelt prayers.

Please help us.

Pray the prayers as Jesus has instructed February 23, 1999, so that our world will be a city of light.

Jesus speaks:

Picture of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

I Died For You (excerpt)

God's Blue Book II Cover

February 23, 1994

Jesus speaks: Priests will create little cities, little cities in each church to spread the light of Christ to this sick world. Each priest can create his own little city, a powerhouse of God's love. God has all the power. His power is endless. It never runs out. It is might. You have no power except through Him. Churches filled with the intimate love of Jesus will be powerhouses.

I am God, My little ones. God can do all things. I can make your cities light up the darkness. I am the Way, the Truth, the Life. I am the light of life. I am God! I can do all things. I want to act in you. You need to be in constant union with Me. My priests, you need to be selfless. My soul and yours are one. I want to act in you.

Hold not back. Pray the Prayer for Union with Me.

September 21, 1999 - to appear September 24, 1999

Jesus speaks:

To any church that prays My prayers before the tabernacle as a body, I will give the greatest graces to turn their parish into a little city of light. I promise this from My most tender Sacred Heart. I love you so.

I write here to help bring to completion the mission My Mother began at Fatima.

Priests will create little cities of light when your hearts are consecrated to Our two Hearts and you are participating in deepest oneness with Me in the Mass and offering yourselves as a sacrifice to the Father in the Holy Spirit through the pure Heart of My Mother.

Your church will be filled with light when you adore Me in the Blessed Sacrament.

I promise you this, that churches following My Movement and praying My prayers will be little cities of light in a dark world.

I desire and My Mother desires schools to use the School Rosary Program.

Mary appears in this last permanent apparition at the end of the 20th century to lead men to My Movement, Shepherds of Christ, through which I will take them into the depth of My Heart.

A century of Marian Apparitions ends in this. On October 13, 1996, I began to give messages in live rosaries on Tom’s farm for the completion of the Fatima Mission. On December 17, 1996, after instructions were given to make the tape, "Mary’s Message", on the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, December 12, 1996, Mary appeared on the building in Florida.

Will you listen to Me?

I beg you to pray as I have instructed.

I love you, Jesus.




Pray the Morning Offering:

Morning Offering (for Shepherds of Christ Members)

My dear Father, I offer You this day all my prayers, works, joys and sufferings, my every breath, my every heartbeat, my every thought, all my actions, in union with Jesus in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass throughout the world, in the Holy Spirit. I pray the Holy Spirit is with me every second today, enlightening me to do the will of the Father and filling me with the fire of God's love.

I ask Jesus and Mary to be one in me in all that I do and I unite with all the angels and saints and souls in purgatory to pray continually to the Father for these intercessions, in this prayer, for this day.

For myself, I pray for grace-abundant grace, to know and love God more and more and to follow the will of the Father. I pray to the Holy Spirit to transform me in the heart of Mary to be more and more like Jesus. I pray that I can forever dwell in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. I pray for conversion of all those I hold dear who need conversion. I pray for each member of my family that they will be filled with Your abundant grace to grow in their knowledge and love of God.

I pray for all my friends that they will receive abundant grace to carry out the great plan of the Father, that they will grow forever closer to Jesus' Heart through Mary's heart, that we will all be led by the Holy Spirit to do His work, that we will, together, carry out the plan of the Father as He intends us to, to spread the love of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Mary's heart to this world.

Jesus, I pray for myself so the Holy Spirit descends upon me and opens my heart to Your love so I will grow more and more deeply in union with You. I pray that I do not worry what other people think but try always to please the Father and do His will. I pray that I may help lead many to Your burning love.

I pray for the following people in particular that they will be filled with the Spirit and grow deeply in their union with You, that they will receive abundant graces to know, love and serve You more. (Include special friends by name...)

I pray for priests the world over, for the success of the Priestly Newsletter, the Chapters and for the finances needed for the Newsletter. I pray for the circulation of the Blue Book messages, rosary meditations and tapes. I pray for all those involved in the publication of these messages.

I pray that You will shower Your abundant graces onto the priests reading the Newsletter the people reading and hearing the Blue Book messages and Rosary Meditations and all of Fr. Carter's publications.

We pray for the intentions we hold deep within our hearts, for our families and friends, for those requesting our prayers. We pray for children the world over and for the souls in purgatory. We ask God to shower His abundant grace on us and the members of our Shepherds of Christ chapter so that we may grow more and more in our knowledge and love of God.

We consecrate ourselves to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. We pray for Father Carter, for Father Smith, for Rita Ring, and for John Weickert, for all leaders and helpers in the Shepherds of Christ Movement, for Shepherds of Christ Ministries, and Our Lady of Light Ministry. We pray for all those who are working in these ministries.

We bind ourselves and our children and our friends to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. We place the precious blood of Jesus on ourselves, and all we touch, so that we will be protected from the evil one. We pray to St. Michael to cast the devil into hell.

We love You, God, we love You, we love You. We beg that we may receive the grace to love You more and more deeply. We adore You, we praise You, our beloved Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
