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.

Teach Me to Give Love to You

Messenger: I am so focused on self. I do not even see Jesus’ love. Love is giving. How do I give to Jesus? Do I tell Him with all my heart how I love Him? Do I think of how He is a Person that longs for my love? Do I thank Him for His life, His Sacraments, His Church, for His life given to me in the Eucharist? Do I thank Him for dying for me and tell Him? Oh, Jesus, I am so caught up in myself. Love is giving. Oh, Jesus, I am so self-centered. I do not even see how focused on self I am and how I want so much from You and give You so little back. You gave Your life for me. It is in surrendering myself I give my life to You. Teach me to love You tenderly from the heart, to surrender to You with greatest love for You.

Oh, Jesus, teach me to love You. Just to give to You. This is the way I try to love others, to give just out of love, but how little I have loved You. Just to love! How little I realize how You want just love, no strings attached. Just to love You for You. You thirst after our love. You say how I love You so coldly. How indeed I have loved You, God, with a cold and selfish heart. You, whose heart is open, all giving, giving us our free will, and I come and always love wanting something in return.

Help me to love You, Jesus, with a heart like Yours, love You just to love You. My heart is one of the cold hearts you talk about. I am so caught up in myself and my needs. Teach me to love. So little I know. I want to love You, Jesus, with a heart that gives love back to You. Where I was blind, I now see. But I am still so blind. Teach Me Your ways, Lord. Open my eyes to Your mysteries of love. I am a baby ready to be taught Your ways. It is in You I find my joy. In You lies true, lasting happiness. I love You, my precious Jesus. Open my eyes to Your way of love!

November 16, 1999 - Second Message

November 16, 1994 - After Communion

Messenger: I realized His immense presence after Communion. He is truly present and within me. I had a vision in my heart of Him on the cross and realized this is the same Jesus within me!

I heard Him say, louder and firmer than ever before, "I give you Myself" -- to the point that I gasped.

I started with this vision in my heart before I received Him and started to cry. It is hard to explain what it is like to have such a realization that He is the same Jesus.

I knew it was the exact Person that died on the cross and gave His very flesh for me.

I saw Him in all His suffering on the cross. I wanted to cry, seeing Him suffering so.

I realized He is in me and present in the Eucharist, the same God who loved me to His death. It is overwhelming. I cannot express the emotion.

November 16, 1999 - Third Message

Given October 24, 1994 - I Am the Bread of Life

Messenger: I am the slave of His most Sacred Heart. It is through this most precious Heart, pierced with a lance, that all graces and mercies flow.

Jesus speaks: I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I am forever present. I am in your midst this day. I was born a Baby with My Heart on fire for love of you. I died for you. From My birth to My death, see this love I poured out to you. My Mother held Me in her outstretched arms at birth. She held My lifeless body under the cross. This shows our love for you! As I was held lifelessly under the cross, you meditate on this life given for you.

This is My life I give to you this day. I am the Bread of Life. He who eats My Flesh will never die. Death has no power over Me. I have died, but I have risen that you will have life and have it to the full.

Messenger: He comes to us this day as He came as a Baby in His Mother’s womb. He tells us:

Song: Reach out to Me and do not fear. I want to be so close to you. I am your God, your precious One, I come to give you life!

Reach out, it is in reaching out, in the surrendering of ourselves in our entirety to Him that we grow in this union with Him. He outpours His grace to us. He wants us to reach out. He reached out. He held His arms outstretched and gave His all to us. From this flows our life and our salvation.

He is a fountain of endless mercy and grace, gained for us on the cross, from the Father, through the Holy Spirit, with His Mother under the cross. He comes to us in every Mass as this unbloody Sacrifice and pours out His grace and mercy to us.

November 16, 1999 - Fourth Message

Given June 12, 1994 - We Have One Life in Christ

Messenger: Our lives cannot be separate, we must be united in Christ. Our life is to be lived in Christ.

Christ, be ever in my breast, on my lips, in my actions, in my thoughts. What comes from me is Christ acting through me. As I become one in Christ, He lives in me and it is a might that cannot be contained. He flows from my actions. He speaks with my tongue. The more I am in union with Him, the more He operates from me. There is a oneness. I live in Him, He lives in me. What flows from me is the life of Christ in me. His love flows to those I touch. The ideal is to be united so closely to Him that my life is His life radiating from me. My life is to be lived minute-by-minute in union with Him. To put on Christ and to live in this world with His life within me, this is my goal -- Christ’s life ever present in all my actions!

November 16, 1999 - Fifth Message

Given November 3, 1994 - 4:45 a.m.

Messenger: My heart knows You dearly, my most precious Lord.

Jesus speaks: I am your Savior, the Son of God. I come to you with greatest love, love for you, My chosen one. I love you to come from your sleep and write My messages of love for everyone. I call you to surrender. Do not hold onto anything. I am leading you into the desert, but you will not fear, for I will walk with you and I will carry all your supplies for the journey. I am God. I know all things. I know your needs. You never want because I supply you with everything.

Let go into My arms. Let Me walk with you. Let Me talk for you. Let Me be in you. As a deer seeks water, seek only My face. My face will forever be with you. You will know My presence more and more and I will forever sustain you.

Oh, you, My little worker, the harvest is plenty, the laborers are few, but at My hands the laborers are mighty. One worker rooted totally in Me can do mighty work. You must let go totally into My most loving Heart. I never go from you! Your problems are mere obstacles when you realize God is forever with you. I will move the obstacles. It may seem tense at times, but you do not get tense because you forever trust in My all-abiding Presence with you! I will operate you. You will do only My work. Surrender your whole being. I never ever leave you for one second!

I want to operate you. I want to use you. I want to possess your soul. I am Jesus, the Son of the Living God. Harken to Me, My precious child. I go before you and pave the way. Dark days are coming for this world . Pray constantly for your brothers that their hearts are turned toward Me. It is your prayers that will help many to turn from their ways. Do not worry for the things of this world. I will operate in you. You must surrender and be selfless.

November 16, 1999 - Nursing Home Message - Seventh Message


Jesus speaks: My chosen ones,

        I DIED FOR YOU!



Picture of Jesus being Laid in Mary's Arms

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 Presentation of Our Lord in the Temple when doing these meditations. Also it is recommended that you have pictures of the Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Excerpt from July 13, 1995 rosary, "The Presentation of Our Lord in the Temple" from the Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary The Presentation of Our Lord in the Temple 

The Presentation of Our Lord in the Temple

  1. Messenger: The Child Jesus was taken to the Temple and presented to the Father.
  2. Mary was told by Simeon of the sufferings to come. He said to Mary, "…and a sword will pierce your soul too..." (Lk 2:35)
  3. Jesus speaks: Satan aims to trip you up and stop you in your path. The Almighty God is speaking to you. What have you to fear? Father, Son and Holy Spirit live within your heart. If the world shakes and the sun ceases to shine, within your heart you can feel the presence of your Father, Son and Holy Spirit so close to you and loving you. Release all your anxieties and let Me bathe you in a bath of My love. I am Jesus, and I am outpouring to you My life.
  4. Messenger: The Presentation in the Temple is such an important mystery! Mary was told that a sword, too, would pierce her soul...
  5. Jesus speaks: Come unto Me, My beloved ones. I want to hold you gently in My arms and press you close to My Heart. I am Jesus. I speak to you with tenderness and love. ... Release yourselves and come away with Me for short moments all through the day. Feel the presence of the Almighty God as I live and dwell within your hearts. I love you. I love you. I love you. I give to you now My abundant life. I am strengthening you for the days ahead...
