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 21, 1999 - After Mass, 9:50 a.m.
With Regards to Intimate Relationships & Communal Life
Messenger: Humility is truth.
I see myself now in a different light.
I see myself as the tainted child of Eve with a fallen nature.
I realize my dependency on Him so that I will do better.
My goal is this, to be possessed by God for all eternity in the deepest union.
I am sorry for my sins and the sins of the whole human race.
I want as a person of the human race to plead in our behalf to God to have mercy and forgive us.
We have offended God.
Jesus speaks: Communication - the art of it is learned especially from childhood.
A child that was forced not to communicate because of a dominating, controlling, self-serving parent, learns dysfunctional ways of relating. A person who had a parent that communicated well in love so problems would be worked through effectively, learns this.
Communication that was faulty must be unlearned to operate openly with each other. Communication can be learned from dealing with a strong boss over 20 years, with a wife or husband, whoever it was that forced the other to not communicate properly because of their authority.
Look at your past relationships and see how, because of a person in authority, real communication was blocked and dysfunctional patterns learned. Many people will never look at problems because they were taught to talk about differences. Problems caused disharmony so problems were not addressed.
An alcoholic father, who is domineering and authoritative may have blocked communication because he would not allow anyone in the family to talk about problems. The family learned to hide problems or it might make dad mad.
Today they may never handle problems because they are still so afraid to handle any problems. They just automatically go into a "shut off" mode from childhood and act dysfunctionally.
When all problems are stuffed under the rug Satan has a free hand to work in the dysfunction and secrecy.
Satan likes people to be crippled in dealing with one another because of learned patterns of the past.
I came naked in a stable, I died with a bare body on the cross.
Wherever there is secrecy in a family which needs to work in the truth, there are problems.
Some little girls, now adult women, may tremble in their shoes from a domineering dad that would not allow them to commuicate. Sometimes force and violence followed. Here is an adult that still is held captive by a learned behavior from childhood that stymies communication where it is essential for life.
At the onset of a problem, the child would freeze up. She would do everything not to communicate or solve it, because within, the little child that was spanked and hit by dad, knew what happened when she would open up, tell the truth and speak about a problem. 50 years later the person did not understand why she has such horrendous problems in her life. Could it be that she never looked at any problems?
Oh, My children, you have learned so many dysfunctional ways rather than loving ways of communication.
Games you play that were taught by dysfunctional people, taught from generations past to them, and you continue, because no one in that family willl look back and see the problem, yet you continue to teach it to others.
Some who never saw a loving face, affirming and loving them as a child, cannot accept or recognize genuine love when it is given for they see themselves unlovable. They spend their lives searching for the knight on the white horse, when in fact , when he comes they do not recognize him, and chased him away with their mean selfish games.
Oh the games you play. You can turn on a faucet and water pours out freely. If every faucet is filled with a plug, water will not flow. Your hearts are plugged with impurities. There are ways you use to try to relate with one another that in fact lead the others away because they are hateful. From your own lack of security and fear of not being loved, you drive others away.
It is truth. Only the truth will set you free. You are all tainted and in need of renewal. Unless you study the ways you communicate and pray for guidance, you will have trouble in intimate relationships when the true self comes out, the self that needs to be more perfected.
The world has taught you a "heap of goods" that you must be perfect and put on a false face to put that image out there.
Just because you feel others may not like what you say, you cannot hide real problems. You must work through them. To block the truth in anyway is to not work through the imperfection. The devil works through this.
Intimate relationships are a way in which each party becomes more perfected in mutual, intimate exchange. To act dysfunctionally, to adapt to the dysfunction, is a block to true loving harmony. All must work according to God's will, live as He wills. When you hide things in intimate relationships, it can cause tremendous problems that will keep you from being one.
Everyone is in the state of becoming. Lovingly you work with each other's faults and failings. The world has taught you to cover the truth and play games. You have communities, religious communities in which everyone remains the same, because they hide their faults, do not interact and live a life of a married single.
This is not what I want for the body of Christ. I want you to be one, to work in the truth, to be able to speak openly and all work for the common good of pleasing God as little, loving children of God the Father and your heavenly Mother.
I state clearly, if you hide some things that need to be worked through, Satan will use that to the "nth-degree" to make you have problems far worse than facing the real issues.
You are dealing with demonic forces that want you stopped, demonic forces that want division, isolation, hatred, loneliness. Satan wants you bowed down, hating yourselves and others.
He works in well-intentioned people that hide the truth and work in dysfunctional ways.
The truth will set you free. You must share how you feel with one another to grow in intimate relationships. Some peoples' thoughts are so bizarre, because Satan has worked there, that they only see their problem when they begin to share it with another person.
Stay connected through love and consecration. Talk to one another face to face. Look at the face you love. When you are feeling divided, see their loving face in your heart. Think of all the good they do. Meet with them. Many times it is more difficult to be mean to someone's face.
Oh My children, Satan knows you so well, and you are falling into his traps. You must pray for grace, and look within at the truth, and really want the reign of My Sacred Heart in your heart.
My Heart is a Heart of love.
My children, to do it right, it will be hard. It was hard when I carried all the sins on My back. I was wounded and bled. You are wounded. To hide the truth will not help you heal. It will be one of the most diffiuclt journeys you ever make, to look within, and one of the most rewarding.
You are all imperfect. You all have dysfunctional ways. Together, loving one another, you will arrive at the truth about yourselves in your hearts. You will be one through constant loving work.
I love you, Jesus.

November 21, 1999 - Nursing Home Message - Fourth Message
Jesus speaks:My nursing home students,
I call you students, you are in My school to learn to love as I love. And you say, "Oh, at my age -- to learn?", and I say the more perfected your loving ways here on earth, the greater your capacity for loving God in heaven.
You were put on the earth to learn to love. You must bend your stubborn ways and give in, surrender and love.
Live for Me, to love and serve Me and to get to heaven to be with Me.
I want you with Me for all eternity. You are My beloved chosen souls, I died for you.
I love you so much, Jesus.
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 Jesus Carries His Cross to Calvary when doing these meditations. Also it is recommended that you have pictures of the Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
Excerpt from March 21, 1995 rosary, "Jesus Carries His Cross to Calvary" from the Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary
