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.

Message Given November 1994

Jesus speaks: Feed My lambs. Feed My sheep. I come to bring nourishment for My flock. Nourish them with My love. Do you not see clearly that they are hungry for My love? They are fed by this love. To hold up My messages any longer is to hold up their nourishment. These are My love letters written to all My precious children. I call you to obey. Publish these messages.

(End of November 1994 message.)





Yes, He is alive. He is not a textbook Jesus, He wants a real loving relationship with us His body, the spouse of Christ.

The role of the handmaids and servants and all of us in the Shepherds of Christ is to live this life of union with Him, pleading and begging as His spouse for the souls, pleading and begging for grace and mercy for the priests, the Church and the world.

Be with Jesus in the garden and know more fully about the souls that would go to the eternal fires of hell and be damned forever despite His life given as a sacrifice. His anguish was so great He sweat blood.

This was the anguish of Jesus (in the garden). Let our priests mount the altar with a heart consumed with love for the Church and the world and fellow priests, for this family of the Father. Let them beg Mary to plead to God for help for us.

Oh, God, please I beg You, grant us grace.

Let us plead for this as we identify with Jesus on the cross, His act of selfless love given for the souls.

Oh God, we implore You - please, for the the souls - HELP US.

Bring Me Souls
by Debora Ellen Kellner

O Lord of Light, O Lord of All,
Come into me, into my soul.
You are my Love, You are my All.
Give me strength to answer Your call.
You cry out to me, You cry out to all,
"Bring Me souls, bring Me souls, bring Me souls."

Dear Jesus, my Love and Friend
I love You so, my Lord and God.
You are the Way, the Truth, the Life.
You show me how to overcome strife.
You died for me, You died for all,
And You cry, "Bring Me souls, bring Me souls."

Lord, may my life be all for You,
my every word and deed I do,
You give me life, my every breath.
You gave Yourself unto Your death.
You cry out to me, You cry out to all,
"Bring Me souls, bring Me souls, bring Me souls."

Lord, help me love with all my  might,
and keep heaven in my sight.
This is what I'm living for
to be in heaven forever with You.
You died for me, You died for all,
And You cry, "Bring Me souls, bring Me souls."

As I am here upon this earth,
You light my path, I trust in You
Help me to pray, to love and do
all that will bring souls to You.
You are my Light, You are my Friend
And You cry, "Bring Me souls, Bring Me souls."

Radiate My Love to This World

Jesus speaks: I am Jesus, your Savior. Open your hearts to My divine love. If you are filled with My love, you will radiate My love to this world. My power radiates from your being. The more you become one in Me, the more I will operate from you in this world. I am the Almighty Lord. As I live and dwell in you I will operate from you to this hurting world. Put on Christ. Be Christ to one another. Come and be friends with Me.

Spend time with Me. I came to show you the way. The more you study My ways and that of My Mother, the more you will become like Us. I want to be your best friend. My Mother is your most loving Mother. You become more and more like those you spend time with. I am Jesus. I came to show you the way. Let Me permeate your being and penetrate your soul. Through My Mother’s Immaculate Heart you will be led to great intimacy with Me.

Let the Spirit fill you with the fire of His love. You will be transformed more and more into MY image. I am love. Be transformed more and more into the person the Father created you to be. You are MY precious chosen ones. Come to Me and be filled with MY divine love. As you are in your heart, so you will be to this world. Be a child of My love, My beloved ones. I am Jesus, I love you.

Matthew 4:23

Jesus proclaims the message
and heals the sick

He went round the whole of Galilee teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and curing all kinds of disease and illness among the people.

Messenger: The people are sick.

The people need to be fed.

Why do the people not flock to the altar?

Why are the young searching to be fed?

They seek things to fill the body.

What will make us feel good?




John 6:35

Jesus answered them:

 I am the bread of life.
 No one who comes to me will ever hunger;
 no one who believes in me will ever thirst.

The Priests Entered the Priesthood for Love of Jesus

Messenger: The priests entered the priesthood for love of God. Love of Him led them to give up the things of the world to be priests. The priests need to be fed with the love of God. Only Jesus can feed them with His love. When the priests are fed, they will feed the people. The priests must come back to the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus. It is through Mary’s most Immaculate Heart that priests will be led back to the inner sanctuaries of Jesus’ most tender Heart. Emphasis must be placed on leading priests to the intimate love of the Savior. When priests are fed by the love of God, they will feed the hungry souls.

Only the love of the Sacred Heart can stand firm in this sick world. Jesus is the light of the world. It is only through His love we will be fed. The priests must be led back to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. His Heart is on fire and burning for the love of His specially anointed priest sons.

Jesus speaks: Pray for your priests to be drawn ever closer to My Most Sacred Heart through My Mother’s Heart. I am the light of the world. I want to shine through My beloved priests in the Church to the hungry souls. Do not forsake Me. I am Jesus. I died for you to bring you life. I bring you My love in My open Heart this day. I will warm the cold hearts. I will shine the brightest in this dark world. Come to My Sacred Heart on fire for love of you.

The Power is in the Eucharist

Jesus speaks: My dear child, these messages will turn hearts to the Eucharist. I am Jesus Christ, Son of God. I will light this world with the love of My Eucharistic Heart through My Mother's Heart.

The power is in the Eucharist! The Eucharist will enkindle in hearts the union needed to turn this world to Me. Pray the Prayer for Union with Me. I am Jesus. I am your Savior. I came to the earth to save men from their sins. I come now in these letters to tell all souls of My unfathomable love for them. Do not underestimate the souls that will be lost because they did not know My love.

Your life here is short. Every moment is so important to spread My love to a world that is hurting. These letters will instill in hearts My burning love. Through My grace I will touch the souls who read these letters. I am love. I operate from love. I am an endless abyss of love, burning divine love, on fire for love of each beloved soul.

I ask you to take Me seriously. I am calling out an alert to publish and circulate these letters to the hurting souls. Your chapters will be joined closer and closer to My Heart when you circulate these letters and rosary meditations. My Mother is appearing as Our Lady of Light. We are giving these meditations to draw souls into the mysteries of our lives, to draw souls to the Eucharist and draw them ever closer to Our Hearts.

Your job will become easier when the power that powers you is the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus, when souls are joined in union with My Heart and that of My Mother. I am allowing Rita to experience such an awareness of My presence in order to tell you of My immense love. I am talking here and I beg you to spread these letters of My love.

The earth will rock and you will know My power and My might. My power is in the Eucharist. I am forever with you. I pour out My grace to you abundantly in the Eucharist. I pour out My grace to you when you sit with Me in front of the tabernacle. You cannot do this job. Give up your control. Realize the power you will have when you turn yourselves over to the Almighty God. I can rock this earth with My power. You put up walls, blocking My messages. I have knocked down the walls. My messages need to circulate. This world is hungry for My love. These are My letters of love to enkindle in men's heart the love that will light up this world.

Your Church will be a Church beating with the love for the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus, through the Heart of Mary. This is the mighty medicine to turn men's hearts on fire for love of God. I beg you to heed My words. I am Jesus Christ, the Son of God. I am speaking to you this day. I want these letters to be circulated and published. Do not delay, men's souls are at stake. I love you so much. I gave My Flesh and Blood for you. I give Myself to you this day. I give you My Body and Blood. Come to Me. My children, My Heart is burning and waiting to give you My Divine love in abundant proportions! I am Jesus. Please circulate and publish these letters and rosary meditations. I love you. Jesus

Readings from today’s Mass - Monday after Epiphany

1 John 3:22 - 4:6

and whatever we ask
we shall receive from him,
because we keep his commandments
and do what is acceptable to him.
His commandment is this,
that we should believe
   in the name of his Son Jesus Christ
and that we should love one another
as he commanded us.
Whoever keeps his commandments
remains in God, and God in him.
And this is the proof
   that he remains in us:
the Spirit that he has given us.

Third condition:
to be on guard against Antichrists
and against the world

My dear friends,
not every spirit is to be trusted,
but test the spirits
   to see whether they are from God,
for many false prophets
   are at large in the world.
This is the proof of the spirit of God:
any spirit
   which acknowledges Jesus Christ,
      come in human nature,
is from God,
and no spirit
   which fails to acknowledge Jesus
is from God;
it is the spirit of Antichrist,
whose coming you have heard of;
he is already at large in the world.
Children, you are from God
and have overcome them,
because he who is in you
is greater than he who is in the world.
They are from the world,
and therefore the world
   inspires what they say,
and listens to them.
We are from God;
whoever recognises God listens to us;
anyone who is not from God
   refuses to listen to us.
This is how we can distinguish
the spirit of truth
   from the spirit of falsehood.

Psalm 2:7-8, 10-12

I will proclaim the decree of Yahweh:
He said to me, ‘You are my son,
today have I fathered you.
Ask of me, and I shall give you the nations as your birthright,
the whole wide world as your possession.

So now, you kings, come to your senses,
you earthly rulers, learn your lesson!
In fear be submissive to Yahweh;
with trembling kiss his feet...

Matthew 4:12-17, 23-25

Return to Galilee

Hearing that John had been arrested he withdrew to Galilee, and leaving Nazara he went and settled in Capernaum, beside the lake, on the borders of Zebulun and Naphtali. This was to fulfil what was spoken by the prophet Isaiah:

    Land of Zebulun! Land of Naphtali!
    Way of the sea beyond Jordan.
    Galilee of the nations!
    The people that lived in darkness
    have seen a great light;
    on those who lived
        in a country of shadow dark as death
    a light has dawned.

From then onwards Jesus began his proclamation with the message, ‘Repent, for the kingdom of Heaven is close at hand.’

Jesus proclaims the message
and heals the sick

He went round the whole of Galilee teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and curing all kinds of disease and illness among the people. His fame spread throughout Syria, and those who were suffering from diseases and painful complaints of one kind or another, the possessed, epileptics, the paralysed, were all brought to him, and he cured them. Large crowds followed him, coming from Galilee, the Decapolis, Jerusalem, Judaea and Transjordan.

Question for married couples and others in intimate relationships:

Q: What can I do to help us be more united?
