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.

Messenger: Jesus and Mary requested the messages of October 5, 1995, and October 5, 1996, appear here today.

Message of October 5, 1995

Sorrowful Mother Statue at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center

Mary speaks: I am Mary, your Mother. This is an urgent call to you at the Center and the Shepherds of Christ Movement. I have appeared as Our Lady of Light for 14 months daily at the Center. I have given to you special rosaries to be circulated among the youth and for all of your devout souls to be drawn closer to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. These rosaries are an important part of the fulfillment of Fatima.

I have called a special rosary on the 5th of each month in honor of the 5 wounds suffered by my Son and the 5 blasphemies suffered to my Immaculate Heart. I have called and called for all to follow the promises given at Fatima for those who honor my request to pray on the First Saturday of the month. I am calling out an urgent plea to answer my call. I have appeared from April 5th, until September 5th, at the Center, six appearances. The first rosary received in the Sorrowful Mother Chapel was March 17th, a very important rosary, received before the exposed Eucharist. I requested the rosary be prayed in the presence of the tabernacle. On March 21, 1995, a special rosary was prayed before the Pieta at the Shepherds of Christ meeting. Many of my children saw events at that rosary. On March 30, 1995, I came in a special way, the corner was filled with a tinted film and I was adorned in such light and alive. At this time I requested the rosary be prayed in the Sorrowful Mother Chapel. The rosary was prayed there for the Shepherds of Christ meetings and many nights. This continued for six months. On September 1st, I gave a very special rosary at 12:00 noon, Friday, a time my Son requested that the rosary be prayed at the Center. Rosaries were given on most Fridays at 12:00 noon. Very tender rosaries of my Son's special love for His beloved souls. I want published a book of these rosaries received on Friday at 12:00 noon. I want published the first book of rosaries with all the rosaries already discerned. In this book, you should include pictures of the windows in the Rosary Chapel, the love songs given from my Son, Jesus, the Seven Sorrows and the messages I have specified. The second book of rosaries should be all of the rosaries received during the Shepherds of Christ meetings. These rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary were given to teach chapter members about Our lives. They are to be spread to this world. They will lead the hearts of your members to my Heart and the Heart of my Son. A book should be published as soon as possible for rosaries for children. I have given many children's rosaries, and the early rosaries were given for children. These rosaries should be used in the Junior Shepherds of Christ Movement.

We have given to you thirteen books. Many answers to your problems are in these books. These books, God's Blue Book and Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary are an important tool to draw souls back to the Church. My Son is so wounded by the indifference and neglect given to Him in the Eucharist.

The Center will light up this world, for many of my messages and my Son's messages were received there. The rosaries were received at the Center. The hearts of many will be filled with the love of God when you circulate these rosaries.

I call out to you. I will continue to come on the 5th of each month. The time was changed at Our Lady of the Woods for I have requested that the rosary be prayed close to 6:30 p.m.

Your Center will remain divided. The funds will come when these rosaries and love letters are circulated.

The funds for the Shepherds of Christ will come when you circulate and publish the books and tapes. I have given to you information about these books. My Son has requested a book of messages given after the daily Masses. These messages will lead many to a deep union with God during the Mass.

You are given great gifts in these messages. Satan has confused and tried to stop these messages. These messages need to circulate. They will lead many to God. I beg you with my motherly Heart to please listen to me. Today is a special day, this October 5th. This is my message to all, to help circulate these messages. Pray earnestly for their circulation and publication. Pray for the funds to help you circulate the books and tapes. The tapes will help many in hospitals, nursing homes. Pray for the funding and it will come.

Many other messengers will come to confuse the importance of these messages. SATAN wants these messages stopped. When they are circulated, my Son will unite deeper and deeper in such oneness with many hearts. These will be the soldiers that will carry His love to this world. Unless these messages of His love are transmitted in the Church, the Church will continue to suffer.

I beg you to listen. I am Mary, your Mother. Many of my little children will go to hell. You hold personal messages from Our Hearts and Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

I am Mary, your Mother, and thank you for responding to my request.

Message from October 5, 1996, Apostles Manual

Mary speaks: I am Our Lady of the Rosary. The Fatima message will unfold around the Shepherds of Christ Movement. I am begging you, please, publish these Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. I appeared daily for 14 months and delivered rosaries for the world. Why have these rosaries been held back from this world? Souls are dropping into hell. Do you comprehend the importance of these rosaries to the Fatima message?

I have appeared as Our Lady of Light and Our Lady of Sorrows delivering these rosaries.

I am now delivering this message as Our Lady of the Holy Rosary.

A great mission I give to you, my beloved apostles in the Shepherds of Christ Movement is to live these rosaries and spread the messages to the world. You must reach the world with these teachings I am giving in the rosary.

On this October 5, 1996, I beg you as your heavenly Mother to not ignore the importance of these rosaries. I have appeared, I have begged, I have warned you. I cannot hold back the hand of my Son any longer. His hand is struck with power.

Today is the 5th of the month, first Saturday. I beg all to study this message and to tell all that come on October 13th, 1996 the importance of these live rosaries and the completion of the Fatima message.

I am Our Lady of the Holy Rosary. This is the key to watching the Movement spread. I am assisting you in publishing and circulating these rosaries. Anyone who stops the rosary messages and meditations will deal with my Son, Jesus!

Souls are at stake and souls have been lost because of the delays to hold back the messages in God's Blue Book and Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. Any negative references in the Movement to these messages displeases my Son for you have been given the greatest gifts in these revelations. I am asking all to help in the circulation of these rosaries and messages. We are communicating to the world majorly in these messages. The completion of the Fatima message is greatly dependent on these messages. Do not give into Satan any longer to block these messages. You are dealing with my Son, Jesus. This is a great gift given to the world. It would please my Son greatly if you expressed to Him your great thanks for the gifts He has given to you. Your answers are found in these messages. They must be studied and recognized for the great gift they are. You were chosen by God to deliver this message to the world. The ingratitude of many displeases my Son greatly. It is now time for the leaders of the Movement and all apostles to support these messages. It is now time to study the content in its entirety. You are missing the key directions because you do not even read the messages.

I am Mary, your Mother. You will be rewarded with the funds needed when you publish these messages and rosaries.

Excerpt from May 30, 2000 daily message (for Mass Book II)

Messenger: The bell tolls and the moment is now.

Messenger: Oh, if we do not have a picture of a bell, hear its beauty and let it resound in your heart, knowing every moment is so important for the souls.

Oh, God, that You love us so much and give us these gifts.

That God is truly present and with us, and we become so busy we do not hear the clock as it ticks in our life, tick, tick and just as that clock ticks, the bell tolls to remind us of every moment and our lives given in helping in the act of redemption to help save souls.

Now I know what it truly is to be a Shepherd of Christ, it is to give your life every moment, to lay it down as He did, uniting those moments to Him in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, being so one in Him as to exist so united to Him, living IN Him, offering sacrifice. A sacrifice is an offering, offering our mundane duties, all we do whether as a sick person lying in bed or a man building a high tower, all having that attitude of laying down their lives for the flock, loving them, wanting all to be one, wanting all to be saved. Oh, God, I wish I had a picture of the Good Shepherd. Envision it, Jesus so beautiful in red and blue garb, a staff in His hand and a sheep in His arms, and He is in a grassy field with sheep surrounding Him, and His love is so great for these little sheep that He would give His life for them. He would lay down His life for His sheep.

John 10: 11-15

I am the good shepherd:
the good shepherd lays down his life
   for his sheep.
The hired man,
   since he is not the shepherd
and the sheep do not belong to him,
abandons the sheep
as soon as he sees a wolf coming,
   and runs away,
and then the wolf attacks
   and scatters the sheep;
he runs away
   because he is only a hired man
and has no concern for the sheep.
I am the good shepherd;
I know my own
and my own know me,
just as the Father knows me
and I know the Father;
and I lay down my life for my sheep.

Messenger: Hear the birds chirp, the tolling bell I cannot hear now, but it tolls in my heart and in my life marking my moments when I lay down my life for Him.

What is there but this, to be a good shepherd. To love God, to be one in Him, is to love the flock, love each and every one that we would give our life for them. We do this when we offer every moment of our lives to Him as a sacrifice for souls, our own and all His precious souls.

Now, even though I do not hear the tolling, I must hear it in my heart. The moment in which I help in the act of redemption is at hand. Every moment of my life I want to live in laying down that life for the flock, offering up my activities done according to the Father's will in love, being one in Him, one in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass going on around the world, being ONE IN HIM. This is my offering, MYSELF, IN HIM. I help carry on the work of redemption in my life living IN HIM.

Oh I cry, I cry, I am enveloped in the precious love of God, He has swept me, little me, off my feet with His presence at Mass. The Good Shepherd offers sacrifice united to His Body the Church at Mass as the sacrifice of Calvary is sacramentally made present in the Mass, through the hands of consecrated priests and we sing.


Messenger: He has enveloped my soul and I know Him so intimately in this love of God.

I cannot speak or write words to describe it.

Song: I love You Jesus

Messenger: And His presence permeates my soul.

Song: Your Presence Pervades My Soul

Song: Your Presence Pervades My Soul (page 2)

Messenger: God is with us, sound the gong, let the world hear the message of His Shepherds, come to the feast, the Almighty God is truly present.

Christ the Chief Priest, Victim and King gives Himself in the greatest act of love to His people through the consecrated priest.

Oh, God, let our hearts sing, let us cry with joy, let us unite in thanksgiving, we beg you to shower your grace on the earth for the souls.

A good shepherd is one who lays down his life for his flock.

I hear the bells toll again. My heart skips a beat, and I cry, for I know that in sorrow and joy my life is His, I am created to achieve heaven and to help others get there.

It is a sacrifice, my offering, my life. I am a shepherd. I do His will, I live to serve Him the way He wants of me.

Authority comes from God to men. There is a pipeline. All authority will be under His feet. In the Church there is structure, it is His Church, He is the head, all are under Him. One that does not report upward to the top breaks the connection to Him. Likewise, the lines of authority must be well defined so the person underneath knows where to go for the authority coming from Him.

The devil wants to take out those in authority. The devil wants those in authority to not report upward.

The power flows from Him, through the lines of authority.

A person that does his own will, and operates freely as he chooses, breaks the lines of authority to God.

Those in authority cannot cut themselves off from those over them.

Jesus has granted great authority to the pope.

A person always must know to whom they report. If one in authority is removed, another must be designated as the authority.

Matthew 16: 18

...You are Peter and on this rock I will build my community. And the gates of the underworld can never overpower it.

Picture of St. Peters coming soon!

Messenger: A priest is a gift from God.

Oh, the gift of God, given to us in the Mass, let our hearts sing for joy.

ROSARIES from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary

(Please copy and pass out to family and friends.)

Sorrowful MotherMary's Message from the Rosary of August 27, 1996

Mary speaks: I stood beneath the cross of my Son, and my Heart was in such pain for I saw Him before my eyes. I saw Him covered with blood. I saw Him die. My Heart, my children, my Heart to watch my Son, but my Heart, my Heart, how I suffered for my little children of the world that give in to this world and give up the love of my Son. O my little children of light, I give you this message. Carry this light into the darkness for your Mother Mary, for I stood beneath the cross and I cried. I cried for the little ones. I cried for the young ones, the ones that do not care and will lose their souls. How do I make you see for you will not listen to me? What can I do? I come. I appear. I beg. I plead. I give you these gifts from my Son, and you reject me. I do not deliver messages very often anymore for I have been ignored. The message is the same. You do not read the messages I have given to you. Please help me. Help the little children. I appear. I appear. I appear, and I am ignored. I stood beneath the cross, and I cried. I cried, and my Heart was in such anguish for my little children, for I am searching for them this day as I searched for the Child Jesus. Please, please help me. I cannot hold back the hand of my Son any longer. I am Mary, your Mother. I ask you to help my children. You are my children of light.

Song: O Lady of Light, shining so bright, be with us this day, guiding our way, O Lady, O Lady of Light.

Mary speaks: I appear to you as Our Mother of Sorrows.

(End of Mary's Message)
