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.
Will you be angry with us for ever?
Will you prolong your wrath age after age?
Jesus speaks: Blessed are they who dwell in My Heart.
JESUS IS IN THE TABERNACLE.
COME AND BE WITH ME.
Reference Matthew 1:16, 18-21, 24a
Romans 4:13, 16-18, 22
Not justified by obedience to the Law
For the promise to Abraham and his descendants that he should inherit the world was not through the Law, but through the uprightness of faith.
That is why the promise is to faith, so that it comes as a free gift and is secure for all the descendants, not only those who rely on the Law but all those others who rely on the faith of Abraham, the ancestor of us all (as scripture says: I have made you the father of many nations). Abraham is our father in the eyes of God, in whom he put his faith, and who brings the dead to life and calls into existence what does not yet exist.
Abraham's faith a model of Christian faith
Though there seemed no hope, he hoped and believed that he was to become father of many nations in fulfilment of the promise: Just so will your descendants be.
This is the faith that was reckoned to him as uprightness.
Excerpt from March 17, 2000 daily message
Jesus speaks: My children, I ask you beginning March 19, 2000, if you are able, to pray a rosary every day for those persons and things that are blocking My Movement.
Mary speaks: I beg you to pray as my Son has requested.
The rosary will be the mystery before the novena.
Sunday is the Sorrowful. The rosary for those blocking the Movement will be the Joyful and will be begun Sunday, March 19, 2000.
Pray to St. Joseph to help you.
(End of Excerpt from March 17, 2000 daily message)
Jesus speaks: What kind of a bride would she be if she never met the Bridegroom in His chambers, but kept night watch daily at the beds of the children?
My children, I cry to you, lest you never come and engage in the meeting of our souls in celestial engagement and deep rooted love.
But the Lord answered, 'Martha, Martha,' he said, 'you worry and fret about so many things, and yet few are needed, indeed only one. It is Mary who has chosen the better part, and it is not to be taken from her.'
Jesus speaks: The Bridegroom cries, the children are all she attends to, she does not even know her own soul must be fed, for she is caught up in receiving her children, but she herself is empty and naked.
Would He, her Bridegroom, not clothe her in garbs of His splendorous grace and douse her hair with fragrance befitting the spouse of a King? But she pines in an empty desert and looks for her glory in her children and is not fed by Him who has the bounty of richest grace.
My brides, I come to find you waiting for Me and you have abandoned your post and gone after a puffy acceptance for your starved egos.
My child, I fill you with all good things, you live to serve Me, to please Me, not to make for yourselves an earthly acclaim among men.
My child, the Bridegroom waits the comfort of His bride, He wants to bathe her in His love, He wants her to sit with Him.
You have thrown out your role as bride and worked the fields. You have tended to the garden and you forget the One Who sows the seed. You walk as creatures that have abandoned their Creator, and you cry like babies that are starved for the milk for which you were created.
Oh, the baby cries, and you the children who come to My churches are sometimes fed with some air and untruth. I want you to be fed with My love, My Word (unaltered and interpreted in the truth). I want you to boast of the Bridegroom truly present in the Eucharist. I want you to come to the Holy Sacrifice and give homage to the King.
I AM GOD. ONE, TRUE, ALMIGHTY - I CRY TO YOU!
I AM NOT A STUFFY GOD.
I AM THE ONE HANGING ON THE CROSS WHO LOVED HIS BRIDE SO MUCH HE GAVE HIMSELF FOR HER.
MINE IS A STORY OF THE GALLANT ONE - THE GOD-MADE-MAN WHO DIED FOR HIS BRIDE - WHO GIVES HIMSELF TODAY FOR HER, WHO GIVES YOU THE HOLY SACRIFICE OF THE MASS.
I AM THE BREAD OF LIFE!!!
I desire this,

6 YEARS AGO - MARCH 20, 1994 - 2 DAYS BEFORE THE CORNER COLLAPSED AT OUR LADY OF THE HOLY SPIRIT CENTER
March 20, 1994 -
Jesus speaks: You don't have to prove the authenticity of these letters. You know they are true. If they doubt, let them get their proof. You don't have to give them signs. If they want the love of God, they will search and know the letters are from Me. Everything else is everybody else's responsibility.
I want you to speak always. I speak through you. I want you to circulate the letters. You do not prove the letters to any man. You write, you talk. Their doubt is their problem. You answer no more than I tell you to. They can turn their backs and lose the true treasure here.
I am Jesus, the Son of God. Say little in your defense. You know they are the fools if they question you. They miss My divine treasure here. I love each child ardently to write to them. Silly to not listen when I speak to you!
You are My messenger. You must only do the delivering. You owe no man any valid reasons why it is true. Publish these messages. I want the book published. What happened to Volume II? I, Son of God, am talking to you and who listens? Now they are holding it up because of the priests. I am Jesus I want all these messages published. If the devil creates enough doubt and confusion as he did, then you deal with that instead of the messages.
I am God. I am so tired with you to publish these letters. You are going to suffer for the souls will be lost while you tarry. Tarry more and do your own thing. Why should I give you any messages? You have not published any that I gave you. If you do not do this work, I will give them to someone who will. I am so tired with you. You are not doing My will and this world is suffering for your delays.
You check, you tarry, and I am God and I am talking to you. You test My messenger. You try her. You want proof. I give you messages, so many messages, and you want a sure thing. You test them on man. Does man know why God tells you here? Why is the world in this state if man is so smart? Why did he not cure it by now? All those you ask, ask them, why are you not curing the world!
I am God. I have spoken. I am so upset with these delays. What do I do to shake you into listening? You want proof. You lack faith. No human being has this knowledge. She is a math teacher and has not even studied theology or the Scriptures. She doesn't even know the books in the Bible. She only loves Me dearly. You test and waste My valuable time. I grow very tired of this.
I am Jesus Christ. I am the Son of God. You are all afraid or you would listen. You are afraid of the priests, afraid of the people, afraid. l have all the power, I am God. I can turn the world upside down. I have all the power. I am tired to give you more messages. You are not publishing anything. You want to be safe. The world is suffering and sick.
You want what you want in the way you want it. I am God and I do things the way I, God, know best. If I did things your way you would have no faith. Man gives into himself. I teach you to reach within your souls to the things and ways of God. You want Me to act like you. I am God and I do not act like the way you want. I am tired!
3 YEARS AGO - MARCH 20, 1997
ACCOUNTING OF MARY'S APPARITION
FROM APOSTLES' MANUAL
Vision as seen by
Rita Ring, March 20, 1997
Messenger: Mary appeared as Our Lady of Fatima for one hour and l5 minutes. Mary appeared in the Sorrowful Mother statue at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center.
I was at Our Lady's House for the Junior Shepherds of Christ meeting. I cannot remember any great apparition of Mary in the Sorrowful Mother statue since August l2 and l3, l996. She appeared all night and two times on August l3, l996, once right before I went to the rosary at Tom's farm about 5:30 p.m. (the night John was there and St. Michael came out of the water). Mary comes when you least expect her.
Tonight I went to the Holy Spirit Center for the rosary with the Junior Shepherds of Christ. We could not pray in the Rosary chapel because Fr. Smith was going to say Mass. We could not pray in the Sorrowful Mother's chapel because the pews were draped with work clothes. We could not pray in the social hall because the band was playing. The only place left was in the hall on the other side of the wall from the band. The youth in the Shepherds of Christ chapter decided this was the place and moved pews in front of the statue.
As we began the rosary I began to see Mary, covered with a mist. Then I saw light around her. She got bigger than the statue, her face softened to that of the most beautiful woman--the same as the picture I took on Mother's Day l995 when she told me to buy film and take her picture. She was all adorned in light. She changed, around her head and she became a young, beautiful girl. She then changed into a lady of immense light, all white, beautiful and young. I wanted to cry in awe looking at her. I wanted to stop the rosary and just see the apparition, but I continued to speak as she spoke through me.
The whole rosary was on Our Lady of Fatima. She turned into Our Lady of Fatima, so white, so beautiful, young in her face. I have seen many statues of Our Lady of Fatima. I have seen her all white and adorned in light before--Our Lady of Light, that is what she called herself.
On October 5, l996 I saw her at Immaculata in the grotto. She had told me earlier that day she was Our Lady of the Rosary and gave a very strong message.
I do not recall seeing her in an apparition in the Sorrowful Mother's statue since August l3, l996.
She was clearly, clearly, "Our Lady of Fatima" - LIVE. I saw her. I am in awe and wanted more, it was so beautiful!
She may have appeared as Our Lady of Fatima the first time. She was covered with the greatest light - a light as from a fire and all white, but on July 5, l994 when she first appeared,
I did not know what Our Lady of Fatima looked like.
I know tonight she was like every statue I have ever seen of Our Lady of Fatima, glistening,, and all white. She had beads or embroidery around her cloak. I know she looked like the Lady of Fatima statues but LIVE.
Every time we sang A Song From Jesus she would shine with the brightest light and her face would fill with the greatest joy.
Even in a lighted hall, Mary would appear to me.
There was no place for Jesus to be born--He was born the Light of the World in a stable in Bethlehem and the brightest star shone above His bed.
This rosary on Fatima needs to circulate to the youth. Mary appeared to tell us to tell the youth this rosary. It does not have any message from Mary, only information from her for the youth.
Mary's message for the youth: a rosary on Fatima--as she appeared to deliver it.
This is a great comfort to me. She appeared, Our Lady of Fatima, to tell us that this is truly a major part of the completion of the Fatima message.
The youth told me they could not hear the rosary, only the loud music of the band. I did not hear the band at all - but was in awe with Mary's appearing and the rosary!
At one point I saw a little blond hair sticking out from under her veil at the top of her head.
At least three times I saw this immense Lady of Light turn into Our Lady of Fatima. It was as if she was transformed from the Lady of Light into the Lady of Fatima.
The room was a brightly lighted hallway with big balls of light that came down from the ceiling.
She was adorned in light, brighter than the hallway, light as bright as seven suns, the Lady of Light.
It is in her womb we see the light, the light of knowing God through the power of the Holy Spirit.
MARY'S ROSARY MARCH 20, 1997, FROM CHILDREN'S ROSARY BOOK
"'Tell everybody that God gives graces through the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Tell
them to ask grace from her, and that the Heart of Jesus wishes to be venerated together
with the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Ask them to plead for peace from the Immaculate Heart
of Mary, for the Lord has confided the peace of the world to her.'27
"This last message offers us an excellent opportunity to summarize the Fatima message. It tells us "that the Heart of Jesus wishes to be venerated together with the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
"At the center of the veneration for which Our Lord calls is the act of consecration to His Sacred Heart and to Mary's Immaculate Heart." 28
The Birth of Jesus
The Presentation of Jesus in the Temple
The Finding of Jesus in the Temple
"You have seen Hell, where the souls of poor sinners go. To save them, God wishes to establish, in the world, devotion to my Immaculate Heart. If people do what I tell you, many souls will be saved and there will be peace."31
We must obey Mary. The plan is the same plan today. We must reach the youth of this world with the consecration We must tell them to give their hearts to Jesus and Mary.
Song: "Oh Holy Dwelling Place of God..."

Messenger: I AM A MESSENGER FROM GOD. A MESSAGE IS A GIFT. TO BLOCK IT MEANS TO SUFFER THE CONSEQUENCES. SOME MESSAGES ARE WARNINGS.
March 20, 2000 - Second Message
Given March 19, 2000 - after 6:20 prayers.
Messenger: Jesus, now I write to You about You. You are glorious, I love You in the Eucharist, I love being with You before the tabernacle. Jesus, I don't know how I could do it without You being with us in the Eucharist.
Jesus, I long for this time every day, time when I am with You.
Jesus, I know I get so much grace being with You at Mass and here.
Oh Jesus, I feel so different in my heart after I have been with You before the tabernacle.
Oh Jesus, I cried so hard to beg You for help to reach the souls and now I feel better. I feel You heard my prayers and understood my pain.
In this little chapel before the Eucharist, I feel like I am in the garden with You, suffering the pain for the souls.
Oh Jesus, I adore You and love You and want to be with You for all eternity.
Today I cried at Mass because I saw You transfigured and heard the Father's voice:
"This is My beloved Son in Whom I am well pleased."
Oh Jesus, I too saw You at the point of death on the cross, opening Your mouth. I experienced Your pain, for they do not hear You speak.
Oh Jesus, my heart cries because I want those ecstasies I have experienced and I long for You so much, to be so united to You in that great celestial embrace with God. Oh, I cry, I want it so much and I want to experience that intense oneness.
Oh Jesus, I long to see Mary again as she appeared. I want it so much and I don't know how to tell anyone what it was like to stand under the cross and experience so many emotions in her Heart. I don't know how to tell anyone what it was like to see You at the point of death on the cross and watch Your silenced mouth move, trying to speak to reach the souls that do not hear.
I remember the experiences with Mary's sorrows. I was wrapped in pain as if a sword penetrated my insides over and over again and I see her before me calling out to reach the children, and I want to tell them it is for Mary we must respond. What she says is true. Our children are dying in their hearts.
Oh Jesus, I cry, I cry to see all these things. To be in this world with the blindness and not to get people to hear and respond to Your cry and the cry of Mary is so painful.
Now she appears on the building and they are still blind. Oh Jesus, my insides are wrought with pain to try to do something more and to endure this suffering so that grace will be released for the souls we want to reach.
Oh Jesus, hear the cries of those who are pleading with me and help us by removing the blocks that stop us from doing more.
Help us to own the building. That alone would help us build up the store and mail the priestly newsletter to all the foreign countries and publish the books - The Mass Book and The Priestly Newsletter Book, The Rosary Coloring books, and the Parents and Children's Rosary Book and the Red Rosary Book with the rainbow that Mary wants and all the Nursing Home Books.
Oh Jesus, help us, grant graces from the sufferings and prayers so that hearts are moved to help us in whatever way You are calling them to help.
Oh my dear souls, help us reach the priests and the youth and get the rosary in the hands of all. There is a child on the edge of death and it could be my son or your daughter. Don't you wish someone would have tried to reach them and had been praying for them to help to get grace for them at this time so they would be in heaven for all eternity?
Oh Jesus, please hear our prayer.
Oh God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, through the intercession of Mary with all the angels and saints and the souls in purgatory, through the Child Jesus of Good Health and the Infant of Prague,
HELP US PLEASE.
I am Your servant, a handmaid of the Lord. I long for You and want to be with You in the highest union for all eternity. SAVE US AND HELP US, hear our prayers. AMEN.
Letter from Florida
Written March 19, 2000
I give my heart to Jesus and Mary with you in love!
Yeh! Today has been wonderful! God is really calling people to the site! So many are so open to the literature! One lady and her husband were just SO excited about the Movement and starting a prayer chapter. They took a lot of prayer manuals, and other materials for themselves - they just couldn't believe it- it was so wonderful to them! She was so thrilled about the prayers! It was so neat!
Another lady came up to the table and she was just so precious, it made my heart jump for joy! She is Lutheran and her daughter came to the site and brought back a lot of material a while ago, and she brought it back home and didn't understand it, so she brought it to a Catholic friend and they explained it to her, including how to pray the rosary. So now they all love to pray the rosary because of the materials she got here, and they came back today and got more rosary meditations and requested rosary tapes! It was so wonderful! I just gave her a big hug - she was so cute! She was so happy to get everything! Her whole family loves to pray the rosary now! It was GREAT!
I just can't say how my soul pines for this life He has given us in this Movement! I could go on forever and not say or express the depths to which I feel in all my heart! It's an ache to not be able to say all that this has done for me! I love you! I thank you from the very bottom of my heart and soul!
I'm so extremely excited about every moment, every aspect of the Shepherds of Christ! I want to cry, it's just in all my guts!

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.
Song: O Lady of Light, shining so bright, be with us this day, guiding our way, O Lady, O Lady of Light.
Mary speaks: I appear to you as Our Mother of Sorrows.
MY VALENTINE FOR JESUS AND MARY
AND THE WORLD
I give my heart to
You Jesus and Mary on this day
February 14, 2000.
I promise to help spread the devotion to
the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.
Q: How do I feel in my heart when I am divided with you?
