February 15, 2000 - Feast of St. Claude La Colombiere
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: St. Claude was a Jesuit priest who with St. Margaret Mary spread the devotion to the Sacred Heart.
I asked my Jesus if I could give Him a Valentine every day and He told me He would like that. He asked that the Valentine be included daily and that we fill it out every day and give it to Him with that date.
He asked that we circulate this Valentine to children, adults, to as many as possible that all will give their hearts to Him and dwell in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.
We are children of the Father. It is to the children that God will reveal the secrets of the kingdom.
Jesus speaks: Take down your stiff shoulders and your heavy beards, the ones that you think give you authority. My men, do not hide your baby cheeks, for it is the face of the young and humble that My Father wishes to see, it is the child that comes, playful and ready to pounce into His loving arms. You are but children playing on the surface of the earth for a day to come in which the glory of God will be revealed to you.
Oh stiff necked men, it is the offering of self as a little child that He desires. The servant serves if he is faithful to the Master. What Master would hire the man that is willful and does his own way? The servant lives to serve the Master. The Master looks with favor on the ones who serve him.
In your world you have been taught to all be the leaders, to do as you will, to seek for the top so there is no one above your head. You prod each other and knock one another down trying to get to the top. The only top you should want to achieve is a place of honor under the Master's feet.
For I am the God of the Earth. I am your Master, you are My children at play. You are learning the lessons of the Mother and Father. You are the sons and daughters of God. You cannot for a moment forget your Father, for your very life depends on Him.
It is a journey, this life of yours. See it from the top, from the eyes of the beholder, from the One Who creates and gives His beloved creatures a free will to prove their love and service of Him. Some, the little stubborn ones, do not serve, but fight off other brothers to take their place of dominance.
There is but one Victor to follow, it is Christ the Lord.
There is but one place of honor, it is under My feet.
1 Corinthians 15:20-28
In fact, however, Christ has been raised from the dead, as the first-fruits of all who have fallen asleep. As it was by one man that death came, so through one man has come the resurrection of the dead. Just as all die in Adam, so in Christ all will be brought to life; but all of them in their proper order: Christ the first-fruits, and next, at his coming, those who belong to him. After that will come the end, when he will hand over the kingdom to God the Father, having abolished every principality, every ruling force and power. For he is to be king until he has made his enemies his footstool, and the last of the enemies to be done away with is death, for he has put all things under his feet. But when it is said everything is subjected, this obviously cannot include the One who subjected everything to him. When everything has been subjected to him, then the Son himself will be subjected to the One who has subjected everything to him, so that God may be all in all.
Jesus speaks: And so you want a victory, you want a place of honor. I show you the Mother Mary.
Luke 1: 46 - 55
And Mary said:
My soul proclaims
the greatness of the Lord
and my spirit rejoices
in God my Saviour;
because he has looked upon
the humiliation of his servant.
Yes, from now onwards
all generations will call me blessed,
for the Almighty
has done great things for me.
Holy is his name,
and his faithful love extends age after age
to those who fear him.
He has used the power of his arm,
he has routed the arrogant of heart.
He has pulled down princes
from their thrones
and raised high the lowly.
He has filled the starving with good things,
sent the rich away empty.
He has come to the help
of Israel his servant,
mindful of his faithful love
--according to the promise
he made to our ancestors--
of his mercy to Abraham
and to his descendants for ever.
Jesus speaks: My men, you must pray the rosary, you must live the rosary, you must model your lives after Our two Hearts.
My men, you are to walk a road of patience being crowned and beaten and watching the children of the earth at play as they are taught sin by the world, and, My men, you cry. Oh cry with Mary as she hangs now on your building in Florida and is ignored. For three long years. And I hung on the cross for three hours.
Oh the minutes seem like hours, the hours like days, the days turn into nights that are long and weeks that seem endless. I carried My cross to the hill of Calvary, mounted it, and then died a brutal death to show you the way of the Good Shepherd. He laid down His Life for His flock. To His death on the cross He did the will of the Father.
A life - a child is born, a baby at the breast, the milk of greatest goodness is given from a mother's breasts, the child is cuddled and loved, and then the child is put into the world in nursery schools, day care, elementary schools, high schools. The child is given sick games, many times by parents who do not withstand the pressures of the world.
Are your children being taught about the commandments?
Are your children being taught about the will of God?
Are your children being taught about My word and how to let it settle in their hearts so that My Life will live in them?
Are your children being taught about the gift I give you in the Eucharist, Myself?
Jesus speaks: They come into the world, their sweet tender cheeks, their little sweet voices come out, gentle, cute and loving, and then you set them loose in your world to be taught, and the once warm breast milk turned cold as they are fed such garbage that is teaching them to go to the dead.
Mary speaks: My babies, my babies I cry to you.
Jesus speaks: My children, I loved you to My death on the cross.
Oh My babies, My Father created you with little sweet mouths and little gentle sighs, and your world has taught you about cold hearts.
Oh My men. You are being chastised for ignoring the Lady of Fatima. You think that the devasation of World War II was dead bodies.
When Mary said at Fatima a great War would follow, the devastation was far more than the dead soldiers and broken hearts of women and children who lost their loved ones. It is the results today of your children who have been eaten alive by your world and its ways. A spiritual death and you do not see it.
My men, you think you can ignore the Lady. If you would have obeyed her request when she appeared daily July 5, 1994 - September 5, 1995, and used the Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary as we told you and consecrated your hearts, you would not be suffering so today.
In a last attempt to reach you with the message of the Eucharist she appears on the building in Florida. She cries out to give your hearts in consecration to us and to pray the rosary.
When I give gifts and messages, and you fight the messengers, you fight Me and anger Me.
I am a kind and gentle God, and I love you.
I appeared February 5, 2000, under the image of My Mother, for I am a God Who loves His people.
I am the Light of the World.
You must obey the commandments
I call you to pray, to consecration, to love, to pray the rosary.
I give you My truth, I give you My word, My word is not to be changed.
I give you My Church, you are to love her.
I am your God, I bent over in the garden, and I sweat blood. I saw before Me the children of this age.
I love you so, I want you to love your God and love one another.
I plead and I beg that you help me and not fight the message I give you.
I beg you to deliver the message as I deliver it to you for the sake of souls.
Life here on earth is but a drop, compared to eternity.
I ask you to include the message February 17, 1994, and the Valentine at the end.
Please help Me, do not fight the messenger for delivering the message I give.
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: Jesus wants to share His love with you. He comes in these letters to tell you how you can be in intimate union with Him.
All of us possess everything we need to have an intimate union with Him. He has written to me since October of 1991. For at least a year I sat in front of the tabernacle and begged him to talk to me. I wanted words. I prayed to the Holy Spirit and begged and begged Him to baptize me. After a long and seemingly endless search, trying to hear God, He told me to "feed the hungry." For six weeks this was all I heard. I thought maybe I wasn't feeding my children well or eating well enough myself. What a long wait for three words! At long last one day, as I was writing to Jesus, I received a letter back. He told me, "I am Jesus, Son of the Living God." I did not want to write this but it kept coming-and so many other messages. I knew nothing of anyone getting messages. I wrote them, reluctantly, and hid my notebooks. The letters kept coming-a lot in the night-and I would be awakened by long letters which I felt compelled to get up and write down. I read these letters privately and my life began to change. I felt a new life within me.
Messenger: Jesus told me to feed the hungry.
Luke 9: 11-17
The return of the apostles
Miracle of the loaves
But the crowds got to know and they went after him. He made them welcome and talked to them about the kingdom of God; and he cured those who were in need of healing.
It was late afternoon when the Twelve came up to him and said, 'Send the people away, and they can go to the villages and farms round about to find lodging and food; for we are in a lonely place here.' He replied, 'Give them something to eat yourselves.' But they said, 'We have no more than five loaves and two fish, unless we are to go ourselves and buy food for all these people.' For there were about five thousand men. But he said to his disciples, 'Get them to sit down in parties of about fifty.' They did so and made them all sit down. Then he took the five loaves and two fish, raised his eyes to heaven, and said the blessing over them; then he broke them and handed them to his disciples to distribute among the crowd. They all ate as much as they wanted, and when the scraps left over were collected they filled twelve baskets.
Messenger: Jesus gives Himself in the Eucharist.
Please help me spread His message.
Mary speaks: My dear children, I am Mary your Mother. Please help through your prayers and funds to do what the Father has asked you to do.
Messenger: We are in dire need of funds to continue the work as our Lord and Lady have directed. The Father wishes us to circulate this material and to buy the Florida Image Building for the purpose of spreading this material that the souls of this earth will give their hearts to Jesus and Mary in consecration and pray the rosary. This is Jesus' Movement to help bring about the reign of His Heart and the triumph of Mary's Heart through spiritual renewal of the Church and the world, praying predominantly for priests and for all souls, including the youth and families. In giving our hearts to Jesus and Mary our hearts will be hearts of love.
MY VALENTINE FOR JESUS AND MARY
AND THE WORLD
I _________________ give my heart to
You Jesus and Mary on this day
I promise to help spread the devotion to
the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.
Q: How do I feel we can spread the consecration to more people? How do I feel spreading the consecration will help us to be more loving to each other?
