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.

I Am Here in the Tabernacle

January 15, 1994 9:15 a.m.
St. Michael Church

Jesus: You come here and I am waiting. Let go of all distractions Satan busies your mind with. You have come to adore your King. Block out all and focus on the King of Glory.

I am Jesus. I am God. I am your all. I am God. Worship, honor, glory--all is My due. Blow the trumpets, sound the horns! There are others to walk about, but no thought, not even a prayer, for the King of Glory.

I am very sad and hurt by all who neglect Me and do not come to Me as I sit here. Where are they? I am Jesus, Son of the Living God. If for one instant I were to cease to think of them, they would cease to be, but they do not even realize Who I am. My heart is so sad. What do they think, for their busy lives? They are in the presence of a King and they don't even recognize Me!

It delights Me so that you have come to Me. I love you with such intense love and I want to give you so many gifts. Come and be with Me in silence. Sit and I will help you block out distractions. I am the King of Glory. I am God. If people come to My house here, it is not to pray, outside of Mass. They come to fix the church and miss the King of Glory. Blind! How blind they are!

Blessed be the name of God. At His Name every knee must bow. I am Jesus, Son of the Living God and have spoken to you, My child. Be with Me. Tell your friends to come and bang on the doors to My church. The priests lock Me up all day. Those who want to come cannot get in! Tell them to come and adore Me and open My doors.

My Heart Aches for You

January 16, 1994 5:30 p.m.
St. Philip

R. I was drawn here as last week, intense pain in my heart and longing for Jesus, who I received this morning, but I played the organ at Mass and didn't get to be close to Him.

Last Sunday was very hard too. I have to be with Him in front of the tabernacle each day or I experience this intense restlessness and irritation. It is only in moments spent with Him alone in silence that such feelings are quieted.

I felt a real presence of Jesus Himself here, His Body. I experienced such longing as pain in my chest at not being able to know Him more or see Him. It is an agony of sorts to know Him a little but never enough. I ache in My heart for Him Whom I miss so much and Whom I crave to know more. At any rate, it is very painful. It reminds me of what I think the souls in purgatory must feel, intense longing for Him.

In my sorrow, I cried out and He heard my plea. He came to me and ministered to my needs.

I am truly here, My little one, in Spiritual Communion.
