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: By what authority do they act? Do they come in My name or their own names? My children come to My altar to hear the directions for their lives. You, My priests, speak for Me. You are My representatives to the people. I want this connection in My Heart to you. Power, authority, wisdom, love come from Me. I am the source. I have the message to deliver to the holy ones, but many of you do it your own way and you do not come to Me for your directions. Many of you do not give Me your hearts. Connection is in the hearts. Many do not spend one hour with Me, you do not spend the time needed in deepening your spiritual lives. Who delivers the message you deliver to the children? I have given you authority, the children come to you because I give you this authority, but many of you tell them what you think. I cry to you. By what authority do you act? You teach messages in the way you celebrate Mass, your devotion to the Eucharist, your time spent in prayer before and after Mass, the time you take to offer the Holy Sacrifice, your reference to so many worldly matters in the homily, when I would speak of their souls and how Satan is trying to lead them into sin.
I died so they would be saved. Do you speak of salvation? Do you speak of souls being lost? Do you tell them how I wait for them in the tabernacle and want their love?
I give you directions when you come in silence before the tabernacle and pray to Me. I give you a greater sharing in My Life, you are to act as I act in you.
I say to so many, whom do you act for? When you are disconnected from Me, when you do not pray and spend time in silence communicating to Me, what message do you deliver to the people? One you made up and thought was a good idea?
I see you teaching and giving instruction and I send the children to My church and I say, "What are they teaching them, they haven't been close to Me for so long. What do they teach them?"
Do you speak of what you want or are you connected to Me? I operate in structure. Power comes from Me.
I beg you to give your lives in consecration. Speak in My name and not your own. Make that connection in Our Hearts through consecration. I give you My priestly newsletter to live by. Please circulate this message to priests that are open.
I love you, Jesus.
October 30, 1999 - Nursing Home Message - Second Message
Jesus speaks: My beloved senior apostles,
You must forgive those who offend you. Walk in truth. You must be true to yourselves, asking God to forgive you for your sins and coming and asking forgiveness of those you have offended.
Love must permeate your every action.
The Father gives great grace for love. Do not hide the truth, you take your problems to Me. I am always there.
I love you so much.
Messenger: When visiting a nursing home this is a plan you can follow to pray a little part of the rosary with the elderly or sick residents.
What is usually done and tolerated by the elderly folks is one Our Father, five Hail Mary's and another Our Father. The song, A Song from Jesus, can be sung before and after these prayers.
It is desirable to have a big picture of the Visitation when doing these meditations. Also it is recommended that you have pictures of the Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
Question for married couples and others in intimate relationships:
Q: How do I feel when I want to know your love and you willingly tell me how much I mean to you?
