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.

April 10, 2000
Jesus speaks: Two women looked out a window, one saw the beauty of the day, one saw mud and rocks.
I speak of joy, for I came to earth that you would have joy.
I give you the Joyful Mysteries to meditate on. Man has sinned and sinned and sinned again and you are to make reparation to your God for all of your sins.
I came in a stable, I came in a pitiful stable, for there was not room for Me in the inn, but you do not identify with Me, nor do you make sacrifice by accepting God's will and living in joy. You grumble and complain and want more.
I called you to be a body to unite and be joyful, for the Bridegroom calls the bride to the divine banquet table and I give Myself to you.
I am a God of justice and right.
Do you put on Christ as it says in the prayers of consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary? You say to Mary in consecration, "You followed Jesus perfectly. You are His first and perfect disciple. Teach me to imitate you in the putting on of Christ."
My child, I have given you the Virgin Mary on the building, a gift never given like that in human history, and I have asked you to be a part of bringing the Fatima mission to completion.
Mary speaks: My child, I am Mary. Jesus is God. He came in poverty in a stable. He, the God-Man, walked the earth.
My children, your earth needs to change their ways.
How holy are you?
Have you thanked God for giving you eyes to see me on the building and eyes to read this message?
My children, my Son gives you this gift in Florida. From all people and from all times He has called you.
My children, He wants love, He wants you to be like Him.
Some are never satisfied, they grumble and complain, and I cry, for when I asked you to make reparation and thank your God for His gifts you missed that important aspect of the Fatima message.
Mary's peace plan.
2) Pray the rosary.
3) Observe First Saturday devotion.
4) Reparation to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.
My children, see my Son beaten, bloodied and wounded. He withstood the torture for you.
Great grace is released when you offer up your sufferings and try to please your God.
From meditating on the rosary - you learn what true joy is - you learn about the Savior - the One Who came and there was not room for Him in the inn - and yet you call yourselves leaders, and you will teach love, but you do not thank your God yourselves and you always want more. He wants joy, He wants you to be an example. There are greater sacrifices that you can give, it is in suffering in joy.
Jesus speaks: I spread My arms, beaten, bloodied and bruised. I died for you.
I came a little helpless Baby born of the Virgin Mary who is a human person.
I died on a tree so that you would have greater Life.
I call you to this mission to help bring about the Reign of My Heart and Triumph of Mary's Heart. The Reign of My Heart belongs in your own heart. Do you want a palace and jewels? I came in poverty and I am God.
There will be a great era of peace.
Are you promoting peace on the earth?
Peace begins in the individual hearts.
I come that you will have peace, love and joy in your hearts.
You hurt Me when you work against My plan.
No one can get his work done when the devil drags him down. One bad apple, one person with a negative spirit, can drag down everyone else.
The Apostles came out of prison singing.
You have been given great gifts and you are never satisfied.
When you mean yes, say yes.
When you mean no, say no.
Build up My body.
Be a leader.
See Me on the cross.
Offer up your sacrifices for souls.
I died for them, can you not offer up your little trials I send you?
What do you meditate on when you pray the rosary?
More and more your lives must be identified with Mine.
Poverty, suffering, death, resurrection.
Jesus speaks: Will you help Me or will you block by your attitude the work others wish to do?
Help Me reach the world with the newsletter.
Help Me reach the world with My prayers.
Help Me reach the world with the rosary and the consecration.
Help Me! Control your negative attitude. Be apostles of joy, on a mission of joy to reach the world.
Others will know the joy I give you,
IT IS IN YOUR HEART,
IT IS YOUR CHOICE,
I MOUNTED THE CROSS - BLOODIED, BEATEN AND BRUISED and I hung to My death for LOVE of YOU.
I love you,
Jesus speaks: You are hurried. Relax and soak in My peace. Only My peace will quiet you. Your days are full of changes. You are adapting well, but always come back to My peace. Breathe in Jesus, out anxiety and fear. In Jesus, out anxiety. Quiet your mind and focus just on My face. See My sorrowful face, see Me with thorns. Bring yourself back to the Passion. It is because of you and your sins I suffered and died for all My children. How great is My love for you that I would die for love of you. Think of this-that you have a friend Who died for you. Oh, how I love, how I long to be with you to tell you of My infinite love for you. Your human minds cannot even comprehend My Divine love! In your deepest meditation you couldn't come close to all the love I have for you. But you must keep trying to know and feel this love. This is your salvation. This is what sets you free in a world of hate. You can always be drawn back to My love and know it is waiting for you always. It never stops. It is infinite. This is what comforts your troubled soul. When they scorn you and mock you, think of Me loving you. I am the all-perfect love. Always come back to Me. Don't let the world get to you. I am here, with peace, love, joy, rapture, being connected to your heart so divinely. I love you so much! I wish you would totally feel this love the way I want you to.
The only way you can experience Me more is to let go of the world more. In this bustling world, My peace reigns. It is in the quiet of your heart. It is within you and you can stay connected at every moment. You never have to lose this peace no matter what goes on around you. You can be a pillar of peace because I am peace. I am joy. I died in peace and dignity. My peace was not shattered even to death. You can experience this peace if you stay in Me. It is My gift I give you. Remember I was at peace at My death. You are being strengthened in your trials. You are growing in My peace. You are learning not to shatter to anything, that if you stay rooted in Me I never leave you and you remain at peace though the earth be shaking. For I am He Who lives in you. You can have this same consistency, but you must stay so connected to Me every minute, every second. Breathe in Jesus, out fear. Look at My face. It is there for you. Look and see Me, I am your rock. You will not falter or fall on your face. Your heart is rooted in My peace and My love. It is consistent, it is everlasting, it is intense and it is My gift to My children who remain fixed in Me. I love you.
Is Your Glass Half-Full or Half-Empty?
April 18, 1994
Messenger: How is your day? Is your glass half-full or half-empty? This is the gauge to how you are feeling inside. Are you seeing all the blessings He is pouring out to you-your health, your food, your loved ones, all the blessings that you have each day? Or are you coming from a place of never having enough? Do you feel irritable and feel that nothing is right, that everything is wrong?
Is the glass half-full or is it half-empty? Do you look for things that are right in your world or do you look for things that are wrong? Do you know that God gives to you exactly what you need and that it is in your acceptance of these things that you grow in your relationship with Him?
Is the glass half-full or half-empty? Do I look at the world and see the love of God in my brothers? Do I look at the world and see the world as not giving to me?
God has all you need. God provides us with our needs. The world is hurting. The world is not that by which we are filled. The world cries from its own pain. How can the world fill us?
We crave the love of God. Our souls can only be satisfied by the love of God. When we see the world as a place that needs God's love, we come to the world with a full glass.
How is your glass today? Is it half-full or half-empty? If you go to our beloved Jesus, He fills you with His love. His love is emitted from your very being. When you spend time with Him and remain fixed in Him, there is peace in His love.
The biggest contribution you can give to yourself and this world is to busy yourself with your relationship with Jesus. Be an empty vessel (glass) ready to be filled by His love.
Jesus speaks: Don't give in to Satan to drag you and everyone else down. Problems must be handled, but some problems can be solved by changing your attitude and imitating Me.
Mary speaks: My Son gives you the rosary.
1) The joy is He comes the Redeemer to save you.
2) The suffering of His Passion and death will help you endure the cross He sends you and help you to bring down greater grace as you identify with Him in His Life, death and Resurrection.
3) The glory is found in Him.
John 12: 24
In all truth I tell you,
unless a wheat grain falls into the earth
it remains only a single grain;
but if it dies
it yields a rich harvest.
Jesus speaks: My handmaids and servants I call to great holiness as My chosen brides, pure, spotless and giving of themselves in love. They walk as Mary, as the handmaid of the Lord.
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.
