October 16, 1999 - Feast of St. Margaret Mary Alacoque


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.


Today is the feast of St. Margaret Mary and Sweetest Day and Jesus is Our Sweet Heart.  Let us love Him today and always.

Jesus speaks: YOU MUST TRUST IN ME.

"Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place my trust in You."

I ask you to pray to the Child Jesus of Good Health.

I ask you to pray for healing in the apostles in the Movement at every Mass. Pray for healing in body, mind, and soul and generational healing in their families.

I ask you to put on one entry from Blue Book IV whenever possible.

I am Jesus. Please promote My Movement to the world. This honors My Sacred Heart.


Messenger: The balcony or the dirt? The mountain top or the mud?

Messenger: Sin entered the world and the world today is in need of healing. It is His grace that will change the world. We do not ignore our sins. We offer sacrifice fully aware of the evil in the world and how it displeases God.

Jesus speaks: On this Feast of St. Margaret Mary, I implore you to offer sacrifice through the Immaculate Heart of My Mother and be so one with My Sacred Heart.

Messenger: We see Abraham.


February 23, 1997 from the Apostles' Manual pp. 250-252
Sacrifice

Messenger: When I go to Mass I offer a sacrifice. God wants our all. He wants to be first in our life. He asked Abraham to sacrifice his son.

Gen. 22:1-2, 9-13, 15-18:

It happened some time later that God put Abraham to the test. "Abraham, Abraham!" he called. "Here I am," he replied. God said, "Take your son, your only son, your beloved Isaac, and go to the land of Moriah, where you are to offer him as a burnt offering on one of the mountains which I shall point out to you.

When they arrived at the place which God had indicated to him, Abraham built an altar there, and arranged the wood. Then he bound his son and put him on the altar on top of the wood. Abraham stretched out his hand and took the knife to kill his son.

But the angel of Yahweh called to him from heaven. "Abraham, Abraham!" he said. "Here I am," he replied. Do not raise your hand against the boy," the angel said. "Do not harm him, for now I know you fear God. You have not refused me your own beloved son." Then looking up, Abraham saw a ram caught by its horns in a bush. Abraham took the ram and offered it as a burnt offering in place of his son.

The angel of Yahweh called Abraham a second time from heaven. "I swear by my own self, Yahweh declares, that because you have done this, because you have not refused me your own beloved son, I will shower blessings on you and make your descendants as numerous as the stars of heaven and the grains of sand on the seashore. Your descendants will gain possession of the gates of their enemies. All nations on earth will bless themselves by your descendants, because you have obeyed my command.

The Father gave His Son for us. This is how great the Father's love is for us.

When we go to the altar many times we are suffering. We want something really bad, but we know we love God the most. What the Father asks for us is to offer that which we are so attached to as a sacrifice, united to the sacrifice of His Son, Jesus. If we offer this sacrifice to Him, the Father will pour out blessings that will be divine blessings, greater than anything we could have here on earth.

The Mass is the perfect sacrifice we offer to the Father, in which God pours out His blessings and we are one with Him and with all others in a profound expression of love. God shares His divine love with us and we partake in an intense way in His divine loving capacity. In order to become one in Him and to feel His love like this, we must surrender ourselves and be open.

He told Abraham to offer his son. God gave him his son back. He wanted Abraham to love God above all things and people.

Jesus offered Himself as a sacrifice to the Father. This is the most pleasing sacrifice to the Father. If He gave His Son Who died for love of us, will He deny us when we unite our petitions with Jesus and offer these at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass?

He took them to the highest mountain and He was transfigured before them in the greatest light.

Mark 9:2-10:

Six days later, Jesus took with him Peter and James and John and led them up a high mountain on their own by themselves. There in their presence he was transfigured: his clothes became brilliantly white, whiter than any earthly bleacher could make them. Elijah appeared to them with Moses; and they were talking to Jesus. Then Peter spoke to Jesus, "Rabbi," he said, "it is wonderful for us to be here; so let us make three shelters, one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah." He did not know what to say; they were so frightened. And a cloud came, covering them in shadow; and from the cloud there came a voice, "This is my Son, the Beloved. Listen to him." Then suddenly, when they looked round, they saw no one with them any more but only Jesus.

As they were coming down from the mountain he warned them to tell no one what they had seen, until after the Son of man had risen from the dead. They observed the warning faithfully, though among themselves they discussed what 'rising from the dead' could mean.

We go to the altar of sacrifice. The mountain to come, in which so many graces will flow, is the altar of sacrifice where the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is offered through the hands of consecrated priests.

We hear the Father say, "This is My beloved Son in whom I am well pleased, listen to Him." He is speaking to us. He is the Word. He is speaking in these messages. He is unveiling the Scriptures and speaking to us in plain talk. This is a great gift He is giving to us.

We are transformed in the Mass. We unite with the greatest sacrifice offered in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. We have the most perfect sacrifice to offer to the Father when we offer this sacrifice. He gives us great blessings. We die to ourselves, we become white.

We must unite all of our sacrifices to this Holy Sacrifice of the Mass being said all over the world. This is the greatest way to magnify all of our offerings - by uniting everything we do as an offering, a sacrifice to the Father in union with His Son.

Genesis 22:1-2

It happened some time later that God put Abraham to the test. 'Abraham, Abraham!' he called. 'Here I am,' he replied. God said, 'Take your son, your only son, your beloved Isaac, and go to the land of Moriah, where you are to offer him as a burnt offering on one of the mountains which I shall point out to you.'


Genesis 22:9-13

When they arrived at the place which God had indicated to him, Abraham built an altar there, and arranged the wood. Then he bound his son and put him on the altar on top of the wood. Abraham stretched out his hand and took the knife to kill his son.

But the angel of Yahweh called to him from heaven. 'Abraham, Abraham!' he said. 'Here I am,' he replied. 'Do not raise your hand against the boy,' the angel said. 'Do not harm him, for now I know you fear God. You have not refused me your own beloved son.' Then looking up, Abraham saw a ram caught by its horns in a bush. Abraham took the ram and offered it as a burnt offering in place of his son.


Messenger: Sacrifice. Abraham was prepared to sacrifice his only son. He was obedient.

He was not like Adam who disobeyed. All his descendants had fallen human natures.

Abraham's descendants are those who do the will of the Father and his descendants are as numerous as the stars in the sky.

Today we must be these transformed sons of Adam.

We are descendants of Abraham, we obey God's will.

We follow in the footprints of the Son of God Who gave Himself as a Sacrifice, and through His grace there is such fruit for the Kingdom.

We are the transformed children of Adam and Eve.

We are the sons of Abraham.

We are children of God and Jesus is our Brother Who died for us to save us from our sins.

When we mount the altar of Sacrifice with Him, we carry our sins and the sins of the world on our backs and we lay down our lives crying out in union with Jesus in this Holy Sacrifice, "Have mercy on us, give us grace, we are sinners."

In every Mass we become one in this Sacrifice pleading and begging for the world. He is one with us in this offering.

Oh, I saw Him, His face. I knew His selfless giving to save every soul.

We cannot focus on the evil. We must see the glory, see the gift God gives us in the Mass.

He gives us the pierced Heart of His Son, the Fountain of Life, flowing with grace and mercy.

Lucia's Vision

THIS IS OUR GIFT, the Eucharistic Heart of the Son of God filled with love.

THIS IS OUR GIFT, the Eucharistic Heart of the Son of God filled with love.
Oh, Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place My trust in Thee.
I adore You, I worship You, I love You.

Messenger: As we unite in this Sacrifice, great grace is released. It affects the children. We help bring forth children for the Kingdom through His grace. We empty ourselves in offering sacrifice to lead souls to Him.

Jesus speaks: It is obedience I desire. Obedience to God's will!

Be as Abraham. He was willing to give his son as a sacrifice.


October 16, 1999 - Third Message

Given May 8, 1995 - Nursing Home Message

Jesus speaks: My dear beloved ones in the nursing homes,

Do you know how much I love you? Oh, oh, My beloved ones, I hold you close to My Heart. I wait to talk to you and share your thoughts with you. I wait for you. I wait by your bed. I wait by your table when you eat. I wait and I long to be with you every moment of your day. Will you talk to Me this day? Will you realize that every second I am with you waiting to share each breath with you? You are never alone. As the most attentive lover, I am waiting patiently by you. Everything you do all day, no matter how small, I want to share with you. My Heart is beating in deepest love for you. Look at My Sacred Heart, carry a picture of My Sacred Heart with you. Look at the Heart and know it is on fire for you this very day.

Oh, dear, dear, sweet ones. I am the most ardent Lover. I wait to be so close to you. I wait with burning love. I am your beloved Spouse, I am Jesus Christ, the Son of God, I am the Bridegroom of your soul.

My Father loves you so dearly. His beloved creation, how precious you are to Him.

The Spirit is with you at every second. Pray for the Spirit to fill your heart with the fire of God's love.

Pray, My beloved ones. How valuable your life is to Me. Pray for the priests. I am Jesus, My Heart is on fire for My beloved priests. Will you pray for them?

Offer up your sufferings and activities all through the day for priests the world over. Offer up your sufferings for the spread of the love of My Heart and My Mother's Heart throughout this world.

Our Hearts are filled with love for you. I am Jesus, how I love you, and I ask you to pray for all souls. You are My special apostles, My apostles of prayer. Pray for all involved in spreading these letters of love. I love you, you are Mine. I never abandon you. I am with you this moment.


October 16, 1999 - Fourth Message

Jesus speaks: All must relate as God wills.

DO NOT CREATE DEPENDENT RELATIONSHIPS that make you powerful and others needy. YOU ACT IN MY NAME. Pray to know the truth.

Put aside your pride and control.

I came as a Child, pray to the Infant of Prague and the Little Child of Good Health for funds and healing.

Look inside yourself, focus on your own "stumbling blocks".

EVERY PERSON NEEDS TO GROW.

DON'T TRY TO CHANGE THE WORLD TO FIT YOUR NEEDS. LOOK INSIDE.

PEOPLE MUST BE DEPENDENT ON ME!!

I DO NOT LIKE SURVIVOR-RESCUER relationships where one makes another needy and never looks at himself.

What happens to you when there is nobody to rescue?

You must all be working on yourselves.

You must be truthful and share in loving truth in intimate relationships, not blaming, but lovingly sharing how you feel to promote oneness and the good of both parties.


Question for married couples and others in intimate relationships:

Q: How do you feel we can better share in mutual love according to God's will?
