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: Today is the moment.

Live it and be glad.

We are one body united and praying for the world. What we do with our thoughts today can help a lot of souls if we stay united in Him and unite in prayer.

We must trust in Him.

Pray every hour, if just to ask for grace and funds.

Donít let Satan come in and put a dark cloud on our heads. Satan can get one negative thing and get us to focus on it. Pray for help with our problems.

Beg for grace to stay positive.

Live in the moment.

Offer each moment, united to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, as a gift to our Father.

Jesus gave His life that we might live.



Messenger: Only we can choose LIFE for ourselves.

Our moments for our Father-----Coming soon! Basket with flowers.

Holy positive moments- trusting in Jesus.

God the Father speaks: Be positive.

Live in the moment.

Give glory to God.

Message of October 24, 1994

Jesus speaks: I came into this world, a little baby. Mary walked My passion with Me, suffering for love of you. Always, total surrender to the Fatherís will. This is seen at My birth, this is seen as I lay in her arms under the cross. Mary and I both, always in total compliance to the Fatherís will.

Your peace and joy lie in doing Godís will. Total surrender, your every breath depends on Me. Where do you think you are going in your busy, busy lives? The victory is won in doing the Fatherís will with love. In it lies your peace.

Reach Out

Messenger: I am the slave of His Most Sacred Heart. It is through this most precious Heart, pierced with a lance, that all graces and mercies flow.

Jesus speaks: I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I am forever present. I am in your midst this day. I was born a baby with My Heart on fire for love of you. I died for you. From My birth to My death, see this love I poured out to you. My Mother held Me in her outstretched arms at birth. I hung alone at My death. She held My lifeless body under the cross. This shows Our love for you! As I was held lifelessly under the cross, you meditate on this life given for you.

This is My life I give to you this day. I am the Bread of Life. He who eats My Flesh will never die. Death has no power over Me. I have died, but I have risen that you will have life and have it to the full.

Song: I come to you with greatest love. I am your loving Savior. I am your God. I died for you. I come to you this day.

Messenger: He comes to us this day, as He came as a baby in His Motherís womb. He tells us:

Song: Reach out to Me and do not fear. I want to be so close to you. I am your God, your precious One. I come to give you life!

Messenger: Reach out, it is in the reaching out, in the surrendering of ourselves in our entirety to Him that we grow in this union with Him. He outpours His grace to us. He wants us to reach out. He reached out. He held His arms outstretched and gave His all to us.

He is a fountain of endless mercy and grace, gained for us on the cross. From the Father, in the Holy Spirit, with His Mother under the cross. He comes to us in every Mass as this unbloody sacrifice and pours out His grace and mercy to us.

Oh, Savior, how great is your love for us to give us Yourself in the Mass. How great the gift of our loving Father to give us Jesus, His Son, in the Holy Spirit, under the appearance of bread and wine. This is my loving Savior. This is how I see Him. Such love poured out to us in the Eucharist! Jesus, the Son of God! How I love Him!

I am in awe to behold Jesus with us this day in the Eucharist. He is truly the Son of God. He loves us and comes to us with this great love. If God is love, how can I not love you, whom He created and loves? Open my heart, Lord, to know and love all men as you do and see with Your eyes, Your compassion. Help me to know this world and all Your beloved creatures through the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus.

I am a slave to Your Most Sacred Heart, Lord, use me to promote this devotion to Your loving Heart!


John 14: 14, 18, 21

If you ask me anything in my name,
I will do it.

I shall not leave you orphans;
I shall come to you.

Whoever holds to my commandments
   and keeps them
is the one who loves me;
and whoever loves me
   will be loved by my Father,
and I shall love him
and reveal myself to him.


"Reach out to Me"


Matthew 7:7

'Öknock, and the door will be opened to you.'


Revelation 3:20

Look, I am standing at the door, knocking. If one of you hears me calling and opens the door, I will come in to share a meal at that personís side.


Messenger: "Feed the hungry". I heard this for six weeks. I saw doors. It is through His Heart we will be saved. Go through the door of His Heart to eternal Salvation!

Jesus speaks: I am the Way, the Truth and the Life. If you enter into the abyss of My Heart, you will be saved. My Heart will ward off the devil. It is your protection from the evils of this world. Come to Me and know My Heart. It is through My Most Sacred Heart all graces and mercies flow.

Messenger: All I want to do is to be wrapped endlessly in the fire of His love.

Jesus speaks: I came into this world, a little baby. Mary walked My passion with Me, suffering for love of you. Always, total surrender to the Fatherís will. This is seen at My birth, this is seen as I lay in her arms under the cross. Mary and I both, always in total compliance to the Fatherís will.

Your peace and joy lie in doing Godís will. Total surrender, your every breath depends on Me. Where do you think you are going in your busy, busy lives? The victory is won in doing the Fatherís will with love. In it lies your peace.

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)


MY VALENTINE FOR JESUS AND MARY

I _________________ give my heart to
You Jesus and Mary on this day
