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.

March 15, 2004

Messenger:    Jesus was crucified and beat at the pillar.
                        For three agonizing hours, He hung on the cross.
                        He was in pain, bleeding, beaten and He hung to His death.



March 15, 2004 message continues

Messenger:    What do we do to alleviate some of the things we must endure?
                        There is so much to learn for some to get along with each other.
                        Some people are thoughtful and kind, loving others and looking out for others.
                        Some only think of themselves.
                        Learning to live to be loving and thoughtful is a process.
                        Some are more advanced than others depending on how they lived before.

                        Think of how long three agonizing hours is.
                        Could we hang for three hours on the cross?
                        He is God — He could have stopped the agony — He endured it for love of us.

                        Wounds covered Jesus' body.
                        He was bleeding.
                        They continued to whip and abuse Him.
                        Like a little innocent Lamb He was led to the slaughter.
                        Christ gives us trials to endure sometimes.
                        In our everyday lives we are asked to endure trials —

                         A priest at Mass was talking about praying for the poor souls.
                        I know we can pray for the poor souls to help them.
                        I know they can pray for us.

                         I saw Jesus at the point of death on the cross at Holy Cross-Immaculata
                            on December 5, 1996.
                        His mouth was moving because no one was listening,
                            later He said that night at the 5th rosary —


Excerpt from August 8, 1999

Messenger:  Mary had appeared almost every 5th for two and 1/2 years beginning July 5, 1994.

On December 5, 1996, instead of Mary appearing Jesus appeared on the cross in utter anguish at the point of death at Holy Cross-Immaculata Church.

He spoke not a word, but His mouth moved profusely. I was horrified by the apparition.

    Sing: The Rosary Song  - all verses


Sorrowful Rosary Mysteries



                            Sing Between decades —




                           Agony in the Garden

                                1) Christ knew all He would have to suffer.
                                2) Christ sweat Blood.
                                3) His Blood fell to the ground.
                                4) His Apostles slept.
Matthew 26: 40-41

He came back to the disciples and found them sleeping, and he said to Peter, ‘So you had not the strength to stay awake with me for one hour? Stay awake, and pray not to be put to the test. The spirit is willing enough, but human nature is weak.’

                                6) When we offer up little sacrifices it can help bring
                                    down great grace. We have sinned.
                                7) Some people are very selfish and hard to get along with.
                                8) Some seem blind to their selfishness.
                                9) Jesus loves us perfectly — He is the Divine God.
                              10) Jesus died for our sins.



                           The Scourging at the Pillar

                                1) They beat Jesus and He is God.
                                2) Many beat Him.
                                3) They laughed at Him.
                                4) They mocked Him as a King.
                                5) They spit on Jesus.
                                6) They tore His flesh.
)  He loved those who beat Him.
                                    The greatest agony was not the agonies to His body,
                                    but to His precious Heart consumed with loved for
                                    those who beat Him.

                                8) Matthew 28-30

‘Come to me, all you who labour and are overburdened, and I will give you rest. Shoulder my yoke and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. Yes, my yoke is easy and my burden light.’

Mark 15:2

Pilate put to him this question, ‘Are you the king of the Jews?’ He replied, ‘It is you who say it.

                                     When we go through suffering we must endure it.
                                      It can help us to grow in greater life in Him. 

Matthew 28-30

‘Come to me, all you who labour and are overburdened, and I will give you rest. Shoulder my yoke and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. Yes, my yoke is easy and my burden light.’



                           Crowning with Thorns

                                1) Jesus suffered so much pain.
                                2) Jesus allowed Himself to be beaten and
                                    crowned with thorns.


                                3) Jesus is the King of heaven and earth.
                                4) They pounded thorns into His Head.
                                5) They gave Him a scepter.
                                6) The Blood went into His eyes.
                                7) The Blood rolled from the wounds.  

                                8) We have little sufferings we must endure
                                    sometime — How do we complain and
                                    not accept some of the crosses we should
                                    endure willingly.
                                9) Little children learn to look for constant pleasures,
                                    in this world.
                              10) Jesus gives us Himself in the Eucharist.
                                    He is no less present than when
                                    He walked the earth.



                           Carrying of the Cross

                                1) Jesus is the Light of the World.
                                2) Jesus allows us to suffer little crosses sometimes.
                                3) Simon of Cyrene helped Jesus carry His cross.
                                4) Jesus and Mary's eyes met on the way to Calvary.
                                5) Jesus was comforted by Mary's face during His
                                    bitter passion.
                                6) Jesus suffered watching His Mother suffer.
                                7) Mary's heart ached as she watched her Son
                                    suffer so much.
                                8) Mary did not receive wounds like Christ,
                                    but she had such suffering to her
                                    heart watching Him suffer.
                                9) Song: See the Eyes that Look at Mary

                              10) Jesus fell under the weight of the cross.

                                    Sing: Little Baby Hands and Feet




                                1) Jesus' hands and feet were nailed to the cross.



                                2) Think of how long it would be to hang on
                                    the cross for three long hours.
                                3) The rosary has a crucifix.
                                4) Look at Jesus on the cross.


                                5) He spread His arms and gave Himself for us.
                                6) Surrender — do we close our arms, many times,
                                    and say no to what He wants of us.
                                7) Do we tell Jesus — oh Jesus I don't want to do that
                                    it's too hard.

                                8) John 19: 25-27

Near the cross of Jesus stood his mother and his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary of Magdala. Seeing his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing near her, Jesus said to his mother, ‘Woman, this is your son.’ Then to the disciple he said, ‘This is your mother.’ And from that hour the disciple took her into his home.

                                9) Do we abandon Jesus and not do what He
                                    wants of us.
                              10) Look at the crucifix.


Mary's Message
from the Rosary of August 27, 1996

Mary speaks:  I stood beneath the cross of my Son, and my Heart was in such pain for I saw Him before my eyes. I saw Him covered with blood. I saw Him die. My Heart, my children, my Heart to watch my Son, but my Heart, my Heart, how I suffered for my little children of the world that give in to this world and give up the love of my Son. O my little children of light, I give you this message. Carry this light into the darkness for your Mother Mary, for I stood beneath the cross and I cried. I cried for the little ones. I cried for the young ones, the ones that do not care and will lose their souls. How do I make you see for you will not listen to me? What can I do? I come. I appear. I beg. I plead. I give you these gifts from my Son, and you reject me. I do not deliver messages very often anymore for I have been ignored. The message is the same. You do not read the messages I have given to you. Please help me. Help the little children. I appear. I appear. I appear, and I am ignored. I stood beneath the cross, and I cried. I cried, and my Heart was in such anguish for my little children, for I am searching for them this day as I searched for the Child Jesus. Please, please help me. I cannot hold back the hand of my Son any longer. I am Mary, your Mother. I ask you to help my children. You are my children of light.

end of Mary's Message, August 27, 1996  


August 23, 1993

Jesus:  My dear child,

I was condemned to death, death on a cross. They gave Me a big cross and made Me carry it. They stood around and glared at Me. It weighed on My shoulder and I pulled at it until it finally moved. Every step was almost impossible as I dragged it, weighing so heavily on My shoulders.

My shoulder felt as if the bones inside would crack and the cross would fall through to the ground. I couldn’t drag it any more. I tried, I fell. I fell and its weight fell on Me. A guard hit Me with something sharp. It really hurt because he wanted Me to move, and fast! People were watching—on with the show! How dare I fall in the middle of the show! He hit Me again and the blow really stung Me. I got up because it hurt so badly. I tried to walk on.

My Mother was in the crowd. She looked at Me and her face looked red and hurt. Tears rolled down her cheeks like rain and as her eyes met Mine, I was hurt so by her sorrow! She was always by My side, silent and loving. She was My Mother of love! She is always there next to you when you suffer.

I fell again and he (the guard) really hit Me. It (the cross) was so heavy that he and I together could barely move it. It seemed as I walked, heavier with the sins of the world heaped on it. My hands were bleeding. Blood ran from the wounds of My thorns and My head throbbed, seeming to make the wounds in My head bleed even more. Some of the Blood was dried, some of it running all over My Body. I had so many cuts and bruises—and people watched and laughed!

I am Jesus, Son of the Living God, and they laughed and mimicked Me! Oh, such hardened hearts! How vile can men’s hearts become? The devil’s grip is paralyzing and crippling.

The walk was so long up a hill and over rocks—the cross had to be lifted over the rocks. My Body was bleeding so badly! My Heart was pounding. I knew that the salvation of all men depended on My love. Therefore, I went through such agony.

I thought of My intense love for you—that many would go to heaven because of My suffering—and I continued to the top of the hill. At the top they laid Me on the cross and with a big hammer nailed My hands to it. It was the worst (suffering) yet. My hands were nailed with big nails and the big hammer. Then, as if that weren’t enough, with a big nail they nailed through both feet.

Then they lifted the cross and banged it into (a hole in) the ground. My shoulders ached from how I hung. My head bobbed and My neck ached and they laughed and said, "Now save Yourself." I hurt so much! I suffered this way for hours—which seemed like forever—and they glared at Me and laughed! My Mother watched in such agony.

For love of you, to My death I gave you My Body. My child, I shed My Blood and gave you My life that you might be with Me forever in heaven—not for a day, a month or a year, but forever with Me in heaven.

I am the true Bread come down from heaven. He who eats My Flesh will have life forever. For the drink I give you is My Blood and food you eat is My Body. Who would lay down his life for a friend? I did, for you. I love you this much, child. Forget about those who reject you. You have My life that I gave you and I give you life eternal.

I am the One true God. I am the Light of life. He who abides in Me will have life eternal, for the drink I give is My Blood and the food I give is My Body. Drink and eat and have everlasting life.

My child, that is all you need to know. Love one another and be good that you may enter into My Kingdom.
