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.
Messenger: Include Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center in 6:20 prayers.
Jesus speaks: On this Valentine's day, I state clearly every soul is most precious to Me.
I want all giving their hearts to Me.
Mary speaks: My children,
I am Mary your mother, I cry out for the youth. I want a youth day retreat in which youth would come to China for a whole day of prayer, reflection, and guidance.
I also desire seminars as I so designate for the couples in the Movement and for the handmaids and servants so that they will see the plan of the Father and increasingly understand the way of life which my Son has set down in the messages, a life centered in Jesus.
My children, there is a program here for the world. The school rosary program is so important. The devil has worked against the Junior Shepherds of Christ.
The way of life is this, as my Son has designated. It is centered in the Eucharist and consecration, in hourly prayer, even if it is to say a few words to Him, in praying the rosary and saying the prayers (Shepherds of Christ Prayer Manual) with your family.
The retreats for youth, older and younger, can be held in China, Indiana; Clearwater, Florida; and Morrow, Ohio. A day of youth activities is appropriate. In the Cincinnati area it can be strengthened by the Junior meetings at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center. Young handmaids and servants can testify to how this way of life has affected their lives.
Living quarters are necessary for retreats in China. It is necessary to reach the youth and acquaint them with the material, but the core members must study the rosaries and the Blue Books, the Daily Messages and be taught in the ways themselves.
Some handmaids and servants are younger women and men living this life of consecration centered in the Eucharist.
My core apostles of the youth must live a life which lives by my Son's messages, restricting their activities to Shepherds of Christ material so they can live and teach the way my Son is telling them.
My children, the rosary and consecration are of utmost importance.
The more you reach the youth with the rosary and consecration, the more things will change.
The power is in the Eucharist. Frequent confession is highly desirable.
Families must be reached with the consecration and the rosary.
The schools must be reached with the consecration and the rosary.
The Church members must work toward perfecting Her role of being the Bride of Christ, through frequent reception of the Eucharist, Eucharistic adoration, spiritual communion, consecration and the rosary. All are encouraged to go to confession frequently.
There must be formed a body of strong core apostles of youth, well versed in the Movement. The handmaids and servants are forming to help lead more youth to this calling.
My children, to be a Shepherds of Christ youth apostle, you cannot be "wish-washy".
Please hear Jesus' call and answer Him.
My children, I am Mary your Mother, and I am bleeding inside for my youth.
