Messenger:         There is a Valentine Spiritual Bouquet.

                            From now until Valentine's Day
                                lets make Jesus
                                the one honored and loved
                                so much in our hearts.

                            Jesus is the Bridegroom of our soul.

                            Jesus is with us.

                            Jesus wants us to tenderly love Him.

December 24, 2002 message continues  

Jesus speaks:     My child, I write to the world on this   
                                Christmas Eve.

                            I came as a baby, I want you to tenderly
                                love Me.

                            I am a Person, I long for your love.

                            Be attentive to Me at every moment.

                            Know I am guarding you.

                            You are not alone.

                            I am Jesus and I am with you.

                            I am attentive to your every need.
                            You think I am not with you sometimes
                                I am always with you and
                                I love you so very much.

                            I want you to tenderly love Me.

Messenger:         Here is a picture I took

March 5, 2001


December 24, 2002 message continues  

Messenger:             We call it the "white Mary".

                            It was right before the 6:20 prayers
                                before dark when I took
                                this picture.

                            It reminds me of us as the brides of 

    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.

December 24, 2002 message continues

Messenger:        Our Church is a pilgrim Church the
                                people growing to be more as God wants.

                            I see that our mission is to help people
                                realize more their spousal relationship
                                with Jesus.

                            The Church is the bride of Christ.

                            I am not alone ever, God is with me.

                            From when I received the first messages
                                from Jesus in December 1991 I
                                was so very happy because I
                                could read them and realize
                                He is always with me.

                            I would hide my notebooks and
                                take them from under my bed
                                and sit in the closet to be
                                alone with Jesus.

                            I could go from my busy day with
                                my children and be with Jesus
                                so deeply united in my heart.

                            I did not fear my beloved, I wanted to
                                please Him and love Him and
                                give my life to Him.

                            I had fear about everything.

                            For six months Jesus wrote to me about

                            I knew the tender love of Jesus.

                            I grew to trust Him more and have greater
                                faith in Him as He worked in my heart.

                            He took me into this deep personal
                                relationship with Him.

                            I knew His presence so deeply in the
                                Eucharist and I longed to go to
                                Mass and receive Him and just
                                be with Him before the tabernacle.

                            I knew He was with me always.
                            I knew that the Father, Son and Holy Spirit
                                dwell deeply in my heart in a special
                                way when I am in the state of grace.

                            I knew my beloved God.
                            Jesus was and is so very personal to me.

                            I was and am in spousal relationship with Jesus.
                            I do everything in union with Him
we are one.

                            I live in this deep oneness with my 
                                God, I love Him so very much.

                            My peace lies in Him always.

                            He is always with me.

                            He is my spouse.

                            He is the one I love so deeply and I love
                                all His precious souls of this earth.

                            The more I am one with Him
                                the more I love the souls so
                                deeply and all in heaven and
                                in purgatory.

                            I know God, I love all souls deeply.

                            My life is lived for souls.

                            I want union with God in the deepest
                                possible way.

                            I went to St. Gertrude's today and I remember
                                so many experiences from here.

January 9, 1994 7:00 a.m.

God The Father: My gift to you is My Son. This is My beloved Son in whom I am well pleased.

--Blue Book II


                    Excerpt from February 28, 1999 message

Messenger: On the 20th of August, 1997, I was at St. Gertrude's and the Lord appeared transfigured on the cross. I heard the voice of the Father speak, "This is My beloved Son, in Whom I am well pleased, listen to Him."

end of excerpt from February 28, 1999

December 24, 2002 message continues  

Messenger:         A large part of Blue Book I and some of 
                                Blue Book II was received at St. Gertrude's
                                in Maderia.

                            As I became more personal with Jesus
                                my beloved Spouse and with the prayers
                                of the Shepherds of Christ and
                                writings and messages

                                my deep love union developed for
                                    the Father and the Holy Spirit
                                    and all souls in heaven and on
                                    earth, also.

                                I am one with God and one
                                    with the souls in heaven
                                    and on earth. I feel that
                                    deep unity with the ones
                                    God loves so deeply.

                            I write to you as a friend, as one who deeply
                                loves Jesus.

                            When others are searching for peace and
                                love and joy, I know it can only be
                                found in God, in knowing the Father,
                                Son and Holy Spirit more intimately.

                            The Blue Book messages are God's letters
                                of tender love for His precious souls.
                                Please help me to circulate them.

                            Please pray for our needs in the Shepherds of
                                Christ so we can do what God wants
                                us to do.

                            I love you so much,
                            I write as a messenger of God.
                            My name is Rita Ring.

Jesus: "My beloved friend, tell My people to come to My Mother. From the cross, as I was suffering indescribable agony, I gave Mary as spiritual Mother to the world. My great love for My people prompted Me to do this. I am Lord and Master, and I want My people to come to My Mother and their Mother. If you wish to be close to Me, come to Mary. Consecrate yourselves to her. In this way you will grow into the closest union with Me. Through her Immaculate Heart, you will be drawn more and more into My own Heart. It is My desire that you allow My Mother to place you within My Heart which loves you with an unfathomable love! This is My wish—that you come to Me enfolded by Mary's mantle, cradled in her arms, pressed against her Heart."

Reflection: It is God's will that we approach Jesus in union with Mary. Enough said!

                  10.   Mary speaks:  Say often 

I give my heart to Jesus and Mary with you in love.
