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.
John 21: 15-17
When they had eaten, Jesus said to Simon Peter, Simon son of John, do you love me more than these others do? He answered, Yes, Lord, you know I love you. Jesus said to him, Feed my lambs. A second time he said to him, Simon son of John, do you love me? He replied, Yes, Lord, you know I love you. Jesus said to him, Look after my sheep. Then he said to him a third time, Simon son of John, do you love me? Peter was hurt that he asked him a third time, Do you love me? and said, Lord, you know everything; you know I love you. Jesus said to him, Feed my sheep.
Note: Jesus is talking here to all apostles who are helping to lead the Movement, especially Apostles of the Sacred Heart.
Jesus speaks: My child, this is the day I have made for you, as your priest told you to be called by God is a special gift. I have called you to run My Movement.
John 15: 16
You did not choose me,
no, I chose you;
and I commissioned you
to go out and to bear fruit,
fruit that will last;
so that the Father will give you
anything you ask him in my name.
Jesus speaks: This indeed is a gift that you are called. As your priest said it would be a special calling to be the president of some organization, you would operate with energy trying to do all you could do for the job.
My child, out of all the people of all times I have called you to this mission to help bring about the Reign of My Sacred Heart.
You could have lived at any other time in the history of the world, and I chose you now to do this for Me.
There are many souls that do not know My personal intimate love. I chose you, I gave you these gifts and I ask you to give the message to others.
Oh My child, such an honor I bestow on you.
Oh My child, I give you this beautiful church in China. I give you Myself in the exposed Eucharist that you can adore Me and be filled more and more with My gifts.
For all time I have given gifts to men and many have been ungrateful.
Today, this very day, I have given you the gift of Mary on the building.
The building is not yours, it is a gift I have given to the world. I have asked you to help Me. Little you, a human person.
In all of time never has such an image of such beauty been given with such permanency as this on a busy corner with all its beauty and I have chosen you for this mission to help light up the world with the messages that will set their hearts on fire for love of God and one another.
Oh My chosen one, you do not know this great honor I have given to you. Please be proud as My Apostle of the Sacred Heart. Be proud in the capacity I have called you. Oh My child, TRUST, TRUST in My Sacred Heart, I love you so much. Will you answer My call?
June is the month of My Sacred Heart.
So many have abused Me, used My name in vain, made jokes about Me. I give these letters of love to My world. I give them to the whole world. Is it fair if you use them for yourselves to help you change, and then you do not help Me spread them through prayer and support or in any way you are able?
Many used My messages that helped change their lives and then persecuted the messenger and tried to stop them from spreading to other hungry souls.
I write from the depth of My Sacred Heart.
Jesus speaks: Here is a message I delivered so strongly in My Blue Book I. I wanted it to go to all the souls of this earth. Can you help Me? Read the words slowly, let them penetrate your soul. I give each word to you. I am Jesus, I speak to you. Go before the tabernacle or the exposed Eucharist and read every word from My Sacred Heart on fire for love of you.
My messages in God's Blue Book are for the world.
My Mass Book is ready to be distributed and will be available right away. In this book I tell you about many things. Oh help me circulate it to nuns and priests and churches. It has the Imprimatur. Help with the publishing of more books to reach My hungry souls.
Messenger: Jesus wants to share His love with you. He comes in these letters to tell you how you can be in intimate union with Him.
All of us possess everything we need to have an intimate union with Him. He has written to me since October of 1991. For at least a year I sat in front of the tabernacle and begged him to talk to me. I wanted words. I prayed to the Holy Spirit and begged and begged Him to baptize me. After a long and seemingly endless search, trying to hear God, He told me to "feed the hungry." For six weeks this was all I heard. I thought maybe I wasn't feeding my children well or eating well enough myself. What a long wait for three words! At long last one day, as I was writing to Jesus, I received a letter back. He told me, "I am Jesus, Son of the Living God." I did not want to write this but it kept coming-and so many other messages. I knew nothing of anyone getting messages. I wrote them, reluctantly, and hid my notebooks. The letters kept coming-a lot in the night-and I would be awakened by long letters which I felt compelled to get up and write down. I read these letters privately and my life began to change. I felt a new life within me.
He taught me of His fervent love and how truly present He was. He taught me how precious I was to Him. Over and over again He would call me His precious child and tell me how He loved me, how He clothed me with dignity and honor. He told me over and over how He was right by my side always. He is teaching me to give up all fear and to trust in Him. He is teaching me to let go of myself and let Him run my life. I am trying every day to do His will.
He is also telling you in your heart all you need to know. He has all the answers for you there in your heart. You must be silent and go to Him so you can hear His words for you.
Sit in front of the tabernacle and be with Him. Sit and be open and just be with Him. Read these letters there. These are Jesus' love letters to you. Sit in front of the tabernacle and let Him talk to you. Sit silent awhile. Read these letters part of the time. Open any page and He will talk to you. Do not read this like a book, cover to cover. Just open to a page and read that page. That is the way He speaks to you.
Jesus speaks: I moved My messenger to write to you of My undying love.
I beg you to help distribute My letters of love to the hungry souls. I give these messages in God's Blue Book, in the rosary meditations, and in the Mass Book.
MY HEART IS ON FIRE.
I CRY TO YOU TO HELP ME.
THERE ARE NO MORE RED ROSARY BOOKS.
Jesus speaks: I give you My letter now that I wanted to go to every soul in the world.
Read it as from your Divine Lover with all My love.
*Words of Jesus. Read before the Tabernacle.
Jesus speaks: How, child, do I, Jesus, tell you I love you? You hold on to silly things when God is in your midst and is ardently loving you. I am Jesus Christ, the Son of God. I am writing to each precious child this day. I am on fire for love of you. I remain in the Eucharist to be with you with My ardent love. I did not want to leave My beloved ones at the Last Supper. I love you so, My dear and ardently loved children. I remain with you this day in the Blessed Sacrament, the same Jesus Who died a brutal death on the Cross.
Do you know I am truly present there? Do you know that God waits every day for you in the tabernacle? Do you comprehend even a minute amount of My love? You will never know of how I love you on earth.
I, Jesus, truly the Son of God, came to earth a man and suffered a brutal death for love of you. I love you so much! I remain with you this day. I long for your love. I want you to come and be with Me in front of the tabernacle. I wait, I yearn for you to come and whisper your love to Me. I am a person and I love you this day, with such an ardent on-fire love! No human could ever compare a speck to My love for you.
I wait, little ones, in the tabernacle. I wait for you to come and receive Me in Communion. I want you to want Me so much you cannot wait to come and receive Me. I want to be the love, the center of your life!
I am Jesus. I am the Son of God. I am writing to you this day. I want to possess your very soul and live in you. I have all you need, sweet ones. Oh, you are so blind! I long for your union with Me. I wrote the book of love. I instituted it, yet you go to the world for your love and do not even come to Me! Oh, I love you, little ones. Little ones, beloved of the Father, loved by the Holy Spirit, mothered by My very own mother! What more can I say? The rest is up to you!
I give you your will with such love and I want your love freely given. I am God. What do you think you could ever need that I do not give you? I am the Savior of this world. I am Jesus, the Son of God. I am waiting for you. I am longing for you. I am yearning for you. I am God. I have all you ever will need!
Surrender this life to Me. Pray My Prayer for Union with Me. I want to possess your soul and operate from your very being. I am Jesus. I am the Son of God. I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I am Who am. I died and rose on the third day.
Harken to My call, harken to My pleading. Spend your days in love with Me. Nothing matters unless it is rooted in Me and rooted in My love. I am the Son of God. I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I love you with the tenderest love. I am waiting this day for just you, My beloved one. Come to Me for I am the tenderest of all hearts. I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
- God's Blue Book,
Volume 2 April 13, 1994
Jesus speaks: I love you so, so much, My child, I love you, on this last Friday of May please help Me spread My messages of love from My most Sacred Heart to this world. Next month is the month of My most Sacred Heart. I want to be loved by My people, I want them to know this personal love union I have for them.
I cry to you to help me reach them.
Many do not even know June is the month of the Sacred Heart.
I call you to help Me reign in all hearts.
They are hungry, they are bleeding, many hurt so bad because they want love and are searching in the "muck" for love.
Their souls crave Me.
I give you My Song from Jesus.
Jesus speaks: I give you My precious song, hear Me sing the words to you, My loved one, I want to woo you to My Heart. I love you so much, I fervently love you.
Jesus speaks: I AM JESUS YOUR SAVIOR.
Pray for 2 special intentions. Please pray fervently now.
Oh child, I tell you this. My Mother wants her special rosary and I want the rosary that will be big so they can hold it and look at the beads and think of My Precious Blood I shed for them.
Jesus speaks: You worry so for all your furniture and your shoes, your gardens and even your garden hose and how it looks.
Jesus speaks: My child, My Mother gives you this instrument, this tool to help bring peace in the world. I want beautiful rosaries with her image as I have directed. In times of great trial, your rosary will be your comforting aid, not your 50 pairs of shoes in every color and the ones with bows and some with tinsel. Oh, My foolish ones. You need your shoes, but your bodies will go to the ground and decay to be eaten by the maggots. Oh foolish ones, the soul must be your concern. You know the man or woman you love. They will not come back from the dead to hear the words you never spoke. Oh, your eyes are fixed on so many details and you see every blade of grass, you spend so much money making your lawn look like a picture. What about your soul, you destroy the weeds in the lawn, you hire professionals, you are so particular about your machinery and yet you don't understand why I would like a rosary which would comfort you and remind you of My Precious Blood, or that My Mother would like one that would make little rainbows dance on your white dress as it glistens in the sun. Oh child, My rosary is important to the world. You need to get the rosary in the hands of all. This will be such a comfort for the days of darkness. Won't you help support My rosary program? I want these rosaries available in the schools during the month of October. Money is needed for the beads for the children and the meditation sheets and consecration cards for the children. Oh, My children, your children could be praying for your church and your world. You spend so much money on cars and cameras and everything for them and you can't help us get a 15 cent rosary in their hands. Mary is the Queen of Peace. Oh she tells you the plan for the peace of the world.
Mary's Peace Plan
Pray the daily rosary.
Consecrate your hearts to my Heart and the Heart of my Son.
Observe the First Saturday devotion.
Make reparation to Our Hearts.
A message for the Earth from Jesus
January 22, 1998
Jesus speaks: I am the Good Shepherd, these are My prayers, the prayers I give to help renew the Church and the world, all prayer chapters are asked to include these prayers (found in the Shepherds of Christ Prayer Manual). As My Apostles and Shepherds I ask you to encourage all existing Chapters to try to encourage all existing prayer groups to pray the Shepherds of Christ prayers. Encourage all Churches to pray these prayers. It is most urgent that the people of this earth concur with the Father's wishes to begin Prayer Chapters. This is an urgent request from the Good Shepherd. The flock will become one when they have given their hearts to Jesus and Mary. Encourage all priests to pray the Shepherds of Christ prayers. Your world will be lighted with great light as the people of this earth pray these prayers.
My promise is this to you My beloved earth: When you give your heart to Me and spread the devotion to My Sacred Heart, I will write your name In My Heart. I promise to give the greatest graces when you pray these prayers for renewal of the Church and the world and take all who pray them deeply into My Heart. The prayers I give will bring about the reign of My Sacred Heart and the triumph of Mary's Immaculate Heart. I am Jesus Christ, this is My message of January 22, 1998, Please circulate this message to your world. I am the Good Shepherd, I know Mine and Mine know Me and they follow Me. Grace My Shepherds, I will give you the greatest graces for spreading these words to this earth and to your Church. I love you, I am Jesus Christ, the Son of Man, it is the Plan of the Father that Prayer Chapters are begun immediately and the Priestly Newsletter is given to all priests. The Voice of the Good Shepherd speaks through it.
Jesus speaks: On July 5, 1998, the Shepherds of Christ began the prayer meetings before the image. They have continued daily. They secured the building by renting it.
Two years have gone by, they still are leasing the building.
On July 5, 2000, there will be a tremendous celebration, please come to the Mary Image Building. It will be the 6 year anniversary of when Mary first appeared in her 14 month daily visits.
July 5, 1994 6:30 p.m.
Messenger: I was told to go to Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center to pray the rosary with my children. There were people in the front of the church, so we decided to pray the rosary in the back before the Sorrowful Mother statue. I had the following vision at the end of the rosary.
The statue of the Sorrowful Mother was lit up as if she had fire around her. The light was very bright. Her whole gown was all-white, but the statue's gown is blue and pink. She was all aglow. It looked like the glow that comes off of a fire. Her face kept changing but remained totally sorrowful-the sorrow of an older woman. She was in such pain and sorrow! (It was hard to explain how she looked-extremely pained!) Her face looked as though she was in such pain that she could hardly bear it.
The vision remained like this for about ten minutes, having begun during the last Hail Mary of the Sorrowful Mysteries of the rosary. She was holding something-it was all bright white-the brightest light ever!
- From Blue Book IV
A Final Explanation
Messenger: Mary appeared almost every day from July 5, 1994 until September 5, 1995 at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center. A video taken at the last rosary revealed a pink mist over the statue during key meditations during the rosary. This video is available upon request. Also available are audio tapes of some rosaries in this book and live rosaries received later. A live rosary is a rosary in which I receive these messages directly from Jesus and Mary. Most rosaries last about one hour. They are taped and these meditations and messages are transcribed from this tape. Mary continues to appear to me.
Jesus and Mary have requested that members of the Shepherds of Christ chapters come together on the 13th of each month at 12:00 noon. Jesus has stressed the importance of these rosaries for the completion of the Fatima message. He promises to give His directions to His chosen apostles on that day. Live recordings of these messages given on the 13th are available on tape and in written form.
We still have special rosaries on the fifth of each month. We also receive a special rosary during the weekly Shepherds of Christ meetings. Presently these rosaries are held at Tom Arlinghaus's Farm in Kentucky. The rosary is led by Fr. Carter, messages and meditations are received by Rita Ring, discerned by Fr. Carter, and published by Shepherds of Christ Publications. Jesus and Mary have allowed me on some occasions to travel and deliver messages during the rosary. Only when They advise me to do so do I travel and deliver a special rosary. For any further information concerning audio or video tapes, contact Shepherds of Christ Publications. Mary and Jesus have requested that you help circulate these rosaries. Rosaries without messages and with the Imprimatur are available for children. Mary has requested that we circulate these rosaries and a simple consecration to Jesus and Mary to the children in schools. Both the rosaries and consecrations have the Imprimatur. Will you help to comply to Mary's request and circulate these rosaries and consecrations to children? Will you be a special apostle and answer both Jesus and Mary's request and circulate these rosaries to as many people as possible? These rosaries are a great gift to you from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. There are many more available. Check our website on the Internet:
Jesus speaks: Mary appeared on the 5th of the month from July 5, 1994.
I appeared on December 5, 1996, at the point of death. This was 12 days before Mary appeared on the building.
The rosaries will have been held on the 5th for a total of 6 years July 5, 2000.
Jesus speaks: I love you, I am Jesus.
Be proud to be called by Me.
Mary asked this rosary to be given to the whole world. From the Red Rosary Book, March 30, 1995.
Messenger: Mary appeared in the Sorrowful Mother Chapel for two hours. The whole corner was adorned in the most brilliant celestial light with a pink hew. Marty and I will never forget the experience of this evening. Jesus illuminated in the Sacred Heart statue during the litany and the promises of the Sacred Heart. Jesus requested that this rosary be circulated to all.

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.
