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.
November 18, 1999
Jesus speaks: My daughter, you cannot be attached to anything, not to the priestly newsletter, not to the Movement, not to anything. Your primary concern is your personal holiness.
November 18, 1999 - After Communion - Second Message
Messenger: I saw all the Communions, the times I received Him, all at once. I saw myself go up the aisle and the different ways He manifested Himself to me: arms outstretched as the Don R. picture of Jesus, the Bridegroom in the Light of Christ Church dressed in black, my First Communion when I went to Him in my little white dress, Communions during my youth in grade school, when I loved Him like a little child, but knew little of Him and His love compared to now. How great a gift I was given and didn't really know it. Now I see before me eternity and the chance to be in the deepest union with Him. From a discussion with one who wants to be a priest, I was touched deeply in my heart by his love of God and the understanding of how short this life truly is in comparison to eternity. Oh that all our priests would rise before us and speak of this heartfelt love of God and the gift given to us in the Eucharist. I adore Him, I cherish Him, I love Him and I want this union with Him in the deepest possible way for all eternity. I see a life of me and my Bridegroom, my going to Communion and receiving Him. My most cherished times in life have been receiving Jesus in the Eucharist. Oh that I could only write what my heart feels and express my longing for the deepest possible union with God for all eternity. Oh my Savior, I long to be saturated with your grace so that I experience Your gifts for me so deeply in my soul. I know love, love of You and love of all and I exist in a heightened union in You. I love it so when You act on my soul with Your grace. Oh Bridegroom, we do not see, but our faith is as a pregnant mother that trusts God that He will tend to the child within her and then the child is born and she sees.
I feel that I am impregnated with Your grace, but I know that my not knowing and seeing only with veiled eyes and still believing with all my heart is bringing down great graces for souls.
Oh God, I believe in You, I love You and I live for Thee. Help me to have life eternal existing in the deepest union with You for all eternity.
Oh God, come and possess my soul.

Nursing Home and Terminally Ill and Other ill Patients
My Daughter, My Terminally Ill, My Nursing Home Loved Ones
Jesus speaks:The years go by with such swiftness and there is a tenderness in your heart from remembering the beauty of each season. I ask you to envision a Christmas tree, a snow-covered tree as it bends low from the weight of the snow on its branches. See some children at play on a snow-covered bank. See the same children at the close of a sunny autumn day on that same hill, covering themselves with brightly colored leaves. One way one day, another way the next day. One season yielding to the next season. You see a beautiful body of water, a crystal lake adorned with spring trees. You see this same place with the autumn that changes the appearance with awesome beauty and the same place with the snow cropped up around the edge of the lake and the heavy branches of the trees bowing low from the weight of the snow, surrounding the lake with beauty and grace.
You see a wooded land covered with spring trees of glorious beauty, you see the fall days of beauteous color, you see the snow-capped trees with a soft white lustrous touch.
And My children, you do not control such things, it is the hand of the Creator that paints the field with a mystical brush of love.
I have given to My messenger the vision of the beauty of a celestial aura that has covered My sanctuary at certain times.
I give to you this vision. Picture the lights of heaven as a celestial veil of little gold dust, as snowflakes so close together and a veil of dense little mystical snowflakes covering the sanctuary where the Lord is in the Eucharist exposed or at the Consecration of the Mass.
See the wind blow and in the spring the petal flowers are blowing as little flakes of snow in a wooded part of the land.
See the little white snowflakes come down creating this aura of mystical beauty.
See the little leaves from Aspen trees blowing down from above as little snowflakes to grace the beautiful land.
Oh My children, I show you the lights of heaven, I describe here the aura which appeared in two of the great visions I gave to My messenger. The last of the three visions in April 1996, and the vision of August 13, 1996, before the rosary at Tom's farm.
Excerpt from September 27, 1999 Daily Message
April 9, 1996
Messenger: After Communion I had this immense presence of God. I knew a vision was coming. My vision gets a certain way. The distinct lines I see before me begin to disappear and are smudged with light.
Then I saw again the celestial lights of heaven. It was as though light was spilled from heaven and landed on the flowers and the corners of everything. The Eucharist took on an immense warmth and I knew God truly present in this room.
I saw with eyes unveiled in my soul and in the room. The room had a celestial aura, it no longer looked defined and clear. It was bathed in a gentle, celestial film and all I saw I wanted to tell to those around me. But I was so caught in His embrace that my mouth did not want to move.
Grace is being spilled on the earth. I have seen this celestial light come upon the altar of sacrifice, the monstrance and the cross. The vision on March 26 (1996) I will never forget as long as I live. The light is so thick and so intense as if the heavens open in these cracks of light and there is a depth far beyond that which any mind can envision.
The sky opened up and it rained down its grace. It opens when hearts are one in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.
(end of March 26, 1996 description)
Excerpt from August 12, 1999 Daily Message
The next morning of the 13th of August Mary appeared again in the same place for several hours in the same exact setting in that white light in the darkened Sorrowful Mother Chapel in the corner. In the late afternoon of the 13th, I would go to the Sorrowful Mother Chapel again.
The Eucharist was exposed and the whole front of the chapel was covered with a celestial aura and she appeared again. This time the light and the aura were a golden light, almost like a gold glistening veil across the whole front of the chapel in front of the exposed Eucharist and before Mary. I did not want to leave there. I drove to the rosary at Tom's farm...
(end of August 13, 1996 description)
Jesus speaks: I show you a mystical veil of light, looking as little minute golden snowflakes, an aura of mystery, a beauty beyond words, a veil to cover the hard cold reality of a hardened world so straight and hard, almost seemingly unable to bend or surrender. The hard must bend to the soft, the darkness must give way to the light. On that day, you arose with your busy schedule and you were stopped by the white sparkling veil of a fallen snow that covered the earth a foot deep, and you saw the beauty of it as it came down, so gentle and sweet. Your eyes were awed by its beauty, your body stiff when, because of an act of the Creator, you could not carry out your busy schedule.
And if it were up to you, you may want to run today and milk the cow, operate the fax, talk of the productivity to the earth, and yet, because of some limitations now, you are confined to your bed.
The dawning of a new day is that of surrender to the will of God. It can be the freshly fallen snow that has stopped you. It can be cancer that is killing you and has taken over your body, any illness or your old age. You might be confined to bed, or a chair, or you just can't do much physically. Whatever it is, it is the dawning of a new day. What good would it do for the woman who rises and finds a snow bank surrounding her house to curse the day? It is the act of the Creator's hand you say, so He allowed it, so surrender. Do what He wills. "The very hairs of your head are numbered."
You must surrender when your body is filled with cancer.
You can help so many souls and help yourselves to gain a greater reward in heaven. Is it better to surrender to those things you cannot control and stay connected to God than to become bitter? Do not fight the Father's plan. Why do you not see My hand in your suffering to slow you down sometimes?
It isn't your "gadgets" that are of the greatest importance, it is that you surrender to the will of God. It isn't that your life was so important before when you were building buildings, raising your children, making millions, whatever it was you did before, and now your life is not as important.
I lived a quiet life for 30 years.
Today you are on the dawning of eternity. Every moment is so important to Me. Your life lived as the Father wills can help so many souls.
Every moment your life is so important to the salvation of your soul and others.
God is with you in the cross you are carrying. Identify with Me. Offer it up for souls. Every moment is so important to Me. Should you rage at the snow fall outside the tent and would it do you any good?
The soft touch of the Creator surrounds you, the very hairs of your head as numbered. Your life today is important as were other moments of your life.
You live to help yourself get to heaven and see My face and have the deepest union with Me. You live to help save souls, to love your brothers and pray for them. I laid down My life for their souls. I ask you to identify with Me. You are My hands, My feet, My Heart. Today you must live your life as it is, living within your human limitations. I ask you to come to Me, that I may use you to help the souls of the earth. I give you life, I can take it away.
Always, My concern is to lead you to the deepest union with Me and for you to help save souls.
Oh My soul, I love you so tenderly and so much.
I love you, My dear chosen one. I love you, I love you, I love you.
I am Jesus, Savior of the World.
I died for my precious souls, will you not suffer for Me?
Seek True Treasures
February 17, 1994 5:30 a.m.
Jesus speaks: My little ones, how are you doing? Are you getting bogged down in this weather? Do you know yet that you do not control the elements? You live every day and you think you have much to do to control your actions but you do not see the eyes of Him Who watches over you with loving care.
I give to you this earth and all you need to sustain your life here. Man worries about the earth and if this or that will happen. Man has become so independent that he thinks he controls all things and he needs to worry about his present and future.
You, My favored, chosen ones, know that life here lasts but a moment and like smoke it is gone without a trace. Look at your ancestors. So few people ever remember their ancestors, yet your ancestors thought that at every moment their actions were so crucial. Little ones, you hold on to life. You hold on to these little happenings here and you worry in vain! Look at the big picture, My little ones. Here today, gone tomorrow, and where are you going?
The days go by with such speed. "Oh," you say, "Where have the years gone?" You think every second is so important. You worry, you fret, you wander empty roads and I watch you. I see you with your emphasis on the moment. You are being deceived, My little ones. It is in seeing the moment as part of eternity that you really know what is going on. Each moment you live, you are the teacher about the God Who dwells in your breast. Each moment you live, you are My messenger to this cold, scared world. Nothing you do means anything except as you are serving Me.
Take off your glasses. Behold the life above. See every moment as a drop of the life to come. See every moment as part of eternity. All these drops together make up your pass into My kingdom.
You worry, you wonder, you fret, you hold on. I give you a toothache, I take it away. One second and a toothache is gone. Is that not how it is with life--one second and it is gone? Oh, how those little precious moments seem to die away and you scarce can remember what happened! Yet during people's lives those moments seem earth-shattering. Those moments are yesterday's forgotten memories. You hold on, you fret, you fume and I watch you let go of each moment, only to become forgotten by today.
Store up your moments as part of eternity. Every moment here is part of your pass to My kingdom. How are you living this moment? Is it used to give service to Me and preach My gospel? Are you making all your moments count towards your eternity? Each moment is but a breath and it is gone. Did you use the moment I gave you to do My work? This time is not yours. I can snatch your moments away in one breath. It matters, My children, only as you choose to serve Me and spread My love!
If everyone had God as their primary goal, what love you would possess. What power you would know, because God is the mightiest force. I have all the power. Other power is false power!
Do you get it yet? Do you think anything you hold on to is so precious here? Here today, gone tomorrow, and I snatch you from your seats and you never return to finish what you deemed so important.
Are you comprehending My words here? The body is but an instrument to get you around. Reach with the spirit within. Live from the soul. Communicate with Me in your soul. Look for the unseen world that surrounds you constantly. Die to yourself.
You have a soul at this very moment that is a vibrant spiritual force alive within you. Live from your soul, My little ones. Focus on your soul. Live from your heart. Do not fret and fume for the things of this world. Here today, gone tomorrow, and then forgotten. Today's moments, yesterday's forgotten treasures. Do they mean so much or do you forget what seemed so important?
Reach with the soul. Live for God. Each moment is your chance to store up treasures for eternity. They will never be forgotten. What you do to help others to know Me will never be forgotten. How you loved will never be forgotten. How you gave lives on in those you touched. Your love is like a bubbling brook. It bubbles and keeps on bubbling. Your selfishness dies the moment after you live it.
Love is the force. Love is the power that reflects the God above. Love is not selfish. Love does not demand its own way. Love gives and doesn't stop giving. On the day of judgment it will be found in the hearts of those you touched. Think of only yourself and watch your moments become yesterday's forgotten moments. Love your brothers and watch the world reflect the love you gave, from now to the end.
Love or selfishness? I call you to love. I call you to plant a seed that grows into a mighty oak. Plant My seeds of love. Ask not how you can attain your goal but how you can fulfill the goal of God. Love God, love one another. Too simple, too hard for many.
Love, children. Reflect the God Who dwells within your soul. Store up your moments forever lest they become yesterday's forgotten treasure.
Like ripples on a pond, your love never dies. It reaches on and on and goes into the moments of eternity. Love is lasting. Love never dies. Love God, love one another. Die to yourself and live.
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 Agony in the Garden when doing these meditations. Also it is recommended that you have pictures of the Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
