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 14, 2000
Received after Communion

Messenger: My God, realizing Your presence, I just don't want to move. I just want to be so one with You. I want this grace to feel this way always. My heart burns for You. I long that men would love You as You so deserve. I long that I could stay here forever in this place and feel the deep heartfelt love in my heart.

It burns so for You my God. You are so good to us and give us such gifts.

Jesus speaks: My child, tremendous grace is granted to the souls for a deeper personal union with Me when they go to China on the 13th and pray before the exposed Eucharist as a body. I give you great graces to draw you into a deeper union with Me. All who come will experience a deeper personal union with Me if they pray fervently for My priests and the Church and the world with open hearts.

Your heart will burn for love of Me. I asked you to sing the song Are Not Our Hearts and I will make your hearts burn for love of Me if you give Me yourself and follow the instructions I am giving for deeper personal love union in the Mass. Sing My songs and this song. Think of Me and your deep love for Me as your spouse. Think of the souls and how I loved them to My death and how I love them today.

Oh I love them, My precious souls. You must love them too, help Me reach them. Love the souls, pray for them, your hearts should burn with love for souls.

Oh see Me, My head covered with blood, see My bloody sweat in the garden. Oh I love the souls. Oh I love them and I love you so much.

Bring Me Souls
by Debora Ellen Kellner

O Lord of Light, O Lord of All,
Come into me, into my soul.
You are my Love, You are my All.
Give me strength to answer Your call.
You cry out to me, You cry out to all,
"Bring Me souls, bring Me souls, bring Me souls."

Dear Jesus, my Love and Friend
I love You so, my Lord and God.
You are the Way, the Truth, the Life.
You show me how to overcome strife.
You died for me, You died for all,
And You cry, "Bring Me souls, bring Me souls."

Lord, may my life be all for You,
my every word and deed I do,
You give me life, my every breath.
You gave Yourself unto Your death.
You cry out to me, You cry out to all,
"Bring Me souls, bring Me souls, bring Me souls."

Lord, help me love with all my might,
and keep heaven in my sight.
This is what I'm living for
to be in heaven forever with You.
You died for me, You died for all,
And You cry, "Bring Me souls, bring Me souls."

As I am here upon this earth,
You light my path, I trust in You
Help me to pray, to love and do
all that will bring souls to You.
You are my Light, You are my Friend
And You cry, "Bring Me souls, Bring Me souls."

Jesus speaks: Oh My child, I thirst for My precious souls, how pleased I am with the one who labors to reach them.

Do not be afraid, labor with Me, I long to be so united to you. I act in you in your lives. My light must shine from your eyes and you labor not in vain, you work for Me. You are My handmaid, My servant, to reach My precious souls. Oh child, I love you so much, let your heart burn for love of Me.

Oh My child, sing the song and let go Are Not Our Hearts.

Let go and feel My burning love in your chest.

To My death on the cross I loved you.

I must note that tremendous grace is granted in Florida on the 5th of the month. My Mother appeared in radiant golden color for you, My chosen ones, at the end of the night.

I want all to hear the words of the Lady Clothed with the Sun.

Sorrowful MotherMary'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.

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.

(End of Mary's Message)

Mary speaks: I stood beneath the cross of my Son and I cried for my children, please help me reach them.

I want the Promises of the Rosary printed here.

The Promises of Mary given to those who pray the Rosary

Over the years, in various apparitions, Mary has stressed the importance of the rosary. She has promised great blessings to those who pray the rosary. To St. Dominic and to Blessed Alan she stated:

  1. Whoever shall faithfully serve me by the recitation of the Rosary, shall receive signal graces.
  2. I promise my special protection and the greatest graces to all those who shall recite the Rosary.
  3. The Rosary shall be a powerful armor against Hell, it will destroy vice, decrease sin, and defeat heresies.
  4. It will cause virtue and good works to flourish; it will obtain for souls the abundant mercy of God; it will lift them to the desire of eternal things. Oh, that souls would sanctify themselves by this means.
  5. The soul which recommends itself to me by the recitation of the Rosary shall not perish.
  6. Whoever shall recite the Rosary devoutly applying himself to the consideration of its sacred mysteries shall never be conquered by misfortune. God will not chastise him in His justice, he shall not perish by an unprovided death; if he be just he shall remain in the grace of God, and become worthy of eternal life.
  7. Whoever shall have a true devotion for the Rosary shall not die without the sacraments of the Church.
  8. Those who are faithful to recite the Rosary shall have during their life and at their death the light of God and the plenitude of His graces; at the moment of death they shall participate in the merits of the saints in paradise.
  9. I shall deliver from purgatory those who have been devoted to the Rosary.
  10. The faithful children of the Rosary shall merit a high degree of glory in Heaven.
  11. You shall obtain all you ask of me by the recitation of the Rosary.
  12. All those who propagate the Holy Rosary shall be aided by me in their necessities.
  13. I have obtained from my Son that all the advocates of the Rosary shall have for intercessors the entire celestial court during their life and at the hour of death.

Do you want peace in your school? The Blessed Mother said at Fatima that until a sufficient number of people give their hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary we will not have peace!

How do we give our hearts to Jesus and Mary? Before school each day, say a small prayer to the Holy Spirit, the small consecration prayers to Jesus and Mary, and the morning offering (all available from Shepherds of Christ at no cost). Each time the children enter a classroom, say the consecration and Holy Spirit prayers. This binds the children in one heart with Jesus and Mary and there is less disharmony.1

We live by Mary's Peace Plan given at Fatima. It is as follows:

    1. Until a sufficient number of people have consecrated their hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, we will not have peace in the world.
    2. Mary has requested all to pray the daily rosary.
    3. We must observe the Five First Saturdays devotion:
      - Communion, confession (within 8 days before or after the Saturday), recital of the rosary, meditating for 15 minutes on the mysteries of the rosary. All this is to be done in a spirit of reparation.
    4. We must make reparation to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.2


I am the Lady of the Rosary. I have come to warn the faithful to amend their lives and to ask pardon for their sins. They must not offend Our Lord any more, for He is already too grievously offended by the sins of men. People must say the Rosary. Let them continue saying it every day.3


During this same July apparition, Mary showed the three children a vision of Hell. She told them:

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.4

Some seem to think the message of Fatima is no longer relevant to today's world. The words of Pope John Paul II tell us how wrong they are. Referring to a pilgrimage he made in 1982, he says:

"Last week, I myself went on pilgrimage to Portugal, especially to Fatima, in order to give thanks that the mercy of God and the protection of the Mother of Christ had saved my life last year. The message of Fatima is a call to conversion and penance, the first and most basic call of the Gospel. Today, it is more urgent than ever, when evil is threatening us through errors based on denial of God. The message of Fatima puts us on our guard. It also invites us to approach anew the Fountain of Mercy by an act of consecration. Mary wishes us to draw near it: each one of us, each nation, and the whole world. " 5 6


In praying the rosary with the bead by bead meditation students learn to love meditating on the lives of Jesus and Mary. The Rosary is a most powerful tool Mary gave to us at Fatima. She said we must pray the rosary. She is the Queen of Peace. Praying the rosary helps the children fight off the evil one. In this age we need to tell our children about what Our Lady said at Fatima about praying the rosary. Mary wants her children to pray it every day for peace in their hearts, in their families, in schools, in churches, and in the world. Mary is the Queen of Peace; she is our Mother. If we want to help our children to find peace we will hear the words of our heavenly Mother.

Even little children enjoy praying the rosary with the Rosary Aves (the bead by bead meditations). One little boy reported how he wanted to be a server because he knew Jesus was really in the Eucharist and he loved Him. Children will love to go to the Eucharist. It is God, truly present. If we want to love, we will be more loving when we receive God in the Eucharist. There is a whole book of rosary meditations that tell children about Jesus and Mary's love for them, the Eucharist, the Mysteries of the Rosary and Mary's message of Fatima. It is available and we wish all to have it to more fully love the rosary and to pray it. There are Stations of the Cross, Seven Sorrows, and beautiful songs including the Rosary Song. Tapes are available of the songs to help children to learn them. They are love songs to Jesus. They are very simple.

We wish to circulate the Rosary Aves and consecration cards to schoolchildren. We wish to give this book and rosaries to schools that children will pray the rosary as Mary requested at Fatima.

Listen to the words of Mary, October 13, 1917:

I am the Lady of the Rosary. I have come to warn the faithful to amend their lives and to ask pardon for their sins. They must not offend Our Lord any more, for He is already too grievously offended by the sins of men. People must say the Rosary. Let them continue saying it every day.7

Rosary meditations and consecration cards are provided free. All materials have the Imprimatur. They are also available on our Internet site:


Making rosaries out of sparkling, colorful plastic beads is a fun year-round activity for all ages. Even five-year-olds can create beautiful ones easily without getting frustrated!

This is wonderful as an in-school, after-school, or at-home project to be coordinated by an adult. When organized as a "club," children spend time at their meetings making rosaries, saying the Rosary, sharing a snack, and enjoying each other socially. Completed rosaries can be donated to fellow students, their families, nursing home residents, and many other individuals. Rosary-making kits (include plastic beads in your choice of colors) are available FREE from the School Rosary Program

Rosaries are given free of charge to schools and charges and people requesting them from Shepherds of Christ Ministries. We would circulate to others rosaries you donate.


Mary wants all to give their hearts to Jesus and Mary in consecration. In a message Mary gave to Jacinta before Jacinta died, she said:

Tell everybody that God gives graces through the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Tell them to ask graces 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.8

If the children pray the consecration prayers from their hearts they are in one mind and one heart in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. They are united to Jesus and Mary and to each other in their hearts. Instead of 30 or 40 different ideas and wills operating in the classroom, the children seriously consecrating their hearts will be united in one mind and one heart, it will help bring peace and harmony to the school and the children's lives. Teachers have reported the best results. Every time children come into the room they can unite with one another using this short prayer with the Imprimatur.

The School Rosary program provides FREE consecration cards for pupils. These prayers are printed on bright index-sized cards, and are written in simple yet beautiful words to help children understand their meaning.


Before receiving the six apparitions of Our Lady, May through October of 1917, the three Fatima visionaries were visited by an angel on three different occasions during the preceding year.

In the fall of the same year, the angel visited the visionaries a final time:

The angel came…bearing a golden chalice in one hand and a Host above it in the other. The amazed children noticed that drops of blood were falling from the Host into the chalice. Presently, the angel left both suspended in mid-air and prostrated himself on the ground saying this beautiful prayer: "Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, I adore You profoundly. I offer You the most precious Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Jesus Christ, present in all tabernacles of the world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges, and indifference by which He is offended. By the infinite merits of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and [the intercession of] the Immaculate Hear of Mary, I beg of Thee the conversion of poor sinners" 9

It is immensely powerful to pray before the Blessed Sacrament.

It is hoped that by making time for Eucharistic Adoration early in life, many of these children will continue to worship God this way when they become adults. This grade school program can be easily adapted for high school use.


A great sign of our consecration to the Immaculate Heart is the wearing of the Brown Scapular. Sister Lucia has said that all Catholics should wear the Brown Scapular as part of the Fatima message. She said, The Rosary and the Scapular are inseparable…In 1251, when she [Mary] gave the Scapular to St. Simon Stock and thereby to the world, the Queen of Heaven stated: Whosoever dies clothed in this shall never suffer eternal fire. Wearing the Scapular serves as a constant reminder of one's personal consecration to Mary and of the necessity of imitating her virtues and heeding her requests." Only priests properly authorized can validly enroll one in the Brown Scapular.10


In this popular program young people in grades 6 through 12 come together to pray for priests and the renewal of the Church and the world and to consecrate their hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

Through weekly meetings, they help each other grow in their faith and love of God. They realize they’re not alone in their struggles, as God is always by their side guiding and loving them.

Typically Junior Shepherds of Christ meetings start out with a visit to a chapel or church where the students pray the Rosary and the Shepherds of Christ Prayers together. Afterwards, they continue socializing by going to a participant’s home or another fun yet appropriate place for youth.

A parent or teacher should help; a priest can help sometimes.


Statues of Our Lady of Fatima can be purchased from the Shepherds of Christ Movement at reasonable prices. Likewise, the video The Miracle of Our Lady of Fatima. All materials distributed for school children should have the Imprimatur. The Miracle of Our Lady of Fatima video was produced by Warner Brothers and can be ordered from most religious bookstores.


Children will be better prepared during Lent praying the Stations of the Cross. Materials to help in this are available from Shepherds of Christ Ministries.  In meditating on Jesus' passion they will know more His great love for us. A separate sheet concerning the First Saturday Devotion is also available.

April 14, 2000 - Second Message

Jesus speaks: I write this to you, please print today's 1st reading.

Jeremiah 20: 10-13

I heard so many disparaging me,
‘Terror on every side!
Denounce him! Let us denounce him!’
All those who were on good terms with me
watched for my downfall,
‘Perhaps he will be seduced into error.
Then we shall get the better of him
and take our revenge!’
But Yahweh is at my side
    like a mighty hero;
my opponents will stumble, vanquished,
confounded by their failure;
everlasting, unforgettable disgrace
    will be theirs.
Yahweh Sabaoth,
    you who test the upright,
observer of motives and thoughts,
    I shall see your vengeance on them,
for I have revealed my cause to you.
Sing to Yahweh,
praise Yahweh,
for he has delivered the soul of one in need
from the clutches of evil doers.

Jesus speaks: I warn you, if you persecute My messenger, you hurt yourself. I am communicating to you through My messengers in these revelations. I warn you, the devil will work through jealousy in your hearts, this jealousy can destroy you. You are in this to help save souls. I have called you, that is a great gift. The devil will try to get you to be jealous. Please fight this and thank your God for the great gifts I have given you. I love you so much. I am Jesus Christ, Chief Shepherd of the Flock.


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.
