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: Come to China.

May 12 - 14.

12:00 noon May 12 to 12:00 noon May 14.

May 8, 2000 - Second Message

Jesus speaks: Please put on the messages of Blue Book IV - The Love of the Hearts of Jesus and Mary on the Internet.

July 28, 1994 - Pounding Heart

Messenger: To embrace you, my Lord! I want to be united as one in my soul. I want to be united as one in my heart. My heart beats with ardent love for my Savior. Such an honor! I cannot even fathom my heart being united to Yours. If You would but tuck me in a little part, a little pocket, and let me be there, let me hear the beating of Your most tender Heart. Let me feel the warmth of Your love, poured out for me!

Jesus speaks: Oh, my precious one, do you know this is reality? The reality of My Heart and that of My Mother’s joined to your heart in such union? This is reality. My Heart beats as one with you in such love!

Meditate on the abyss of My most Sacred Heart, it is a mighty furnace burning with such a roaring fire for love of you. Think of this union. I am the fire that burns in the hearts of those who open themselves up to Me.  It is this fire that burns with love in your eyes, that is emitted from you when you are with others.

Your oneness with Me is of importance to your life on this earth and the life hereafter. Strive for deepest union with Me in the burning furnace of My Heart. I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus, ablaze with love on fire for you. Be so intimate with Me, My precious child. This intimacy I crave with every soul. Speak of My Heart ablaze for love of each soul. I want their love. Tell them I wait for them with such yearning!

Messenger: I saw a heart that looked like it was a furnace inside. It was bright yellow, white in the center. I am experiencing pounding in my heart.

His Heart is truly beating for love of us. I felt my heart beating so hard in my chest. I knew it was from Him. Hearts don’t do what mine is doing. This morning my heart was pounding, heart racing, I got this letter:

Jesus speaks: This is My love for you. The pounding in your heart is from Me. Every second My Heart is beating with intense love of you. Even when you forget about Me, I am loving you with My intense love. I love you with a beating Heart, on fire for love of you. When you are lonely think of My Heart beating so strongly for love of you.

July 28, 1994 - Jesus Loves You this Day

Jesus speaks: I am Jesus, child. I love you this way, no matter where you go. Pray the rosary and be with your children. It is My love you must pour out to others. My Heart beats like this for love of all. Respect your brothers and love them as My Father's dear creation, as the temple of the Lord, of My love. They are your brothers. Love them, sweet one, love all for Me. You are My Heart beating in this cold world.

Messenger: How can I leave you after this?

Jesus speaks: I don't leave you. I go with you as you love and serve your Lord. You must share My love with all. You are My temple in this world. Love your brothers for Me.

July 28, 1994 - Reach Out With the Hands of Love

Messenger: To love you this way! Jesus wants me to realize the dignity that He bestows on me. "With dignity and honor, I have clothed you, My sweet one."

Jesus speaks: Reach out with the hands of love. Be heart-centered, filled deep within with My most ardent love. You will love others proportionate to your love affair with Me. From the depth of My Heart I cry unto you to realize this love that is outpoured to you. You are My beloved. You are My sweet and faithful one. You, I ask to come and be in love with Me. Pray from your heart. Be in love with Me.

Messenger: He would do what He did because He knew the love of the Father. All love that comes through Jesus comes from the Father. He loved when they hated because He knew the Father's love. When the world is cold, jump into His Heart. He puts us in a little pocket. Little lambs, caressed by His Heart!

July 29, 1994 - Stay Ever Pure in My Heart

Messenger: Jesus told me He could withstand His bitter Passion because He knew the Father's love for Him. All love that comes through Jesus comes from the Father. He loved when they hated Him because He knew the Father's love.

When the world is cold, I run to His Heart and tuck myself inside His Heart. It is for you I live, Lord. Give me the courage and your love to love when I would rather not. You are my Savior. I am your servant. I want to do the will of the Father. Help me to realize more and more the Father's love for me. He loved me first to create me. I am the creation of God the Father.

Let me forever hold in my heart the vision of Jesus caressing the little lambs with such love. I want to be a little lamb caressed and held close to the Heart of the Good Shepherd!

Creatures are imperfect, I am imperfect, my brothers are imperfect. I cannot demand perfection of myself or others.

I must love myself and others despite my faults.

The Lord will be my Shepherd, nothing more shall I want.

Jesus speaks: I am Jesus, the Son of God. I am He Who loves you, My little one. Forever focus on My love. Do not be troubled. My Heart is the tenderest of all hearts. I am as gentle in heart as I was as a tender baby in Mary's arms. My Heart is tender and loving and pure. Come to Me, My beloved one. I caress you close to My Heart and you are never afraid, for I love you with strength and gentleness.

I am Jesus, Son of the Living God.

I live in you, dear one. Stay ever pure in My love. Come and meditate with Me. I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I am your love. Come to Me, My precious child.

Messenger: I have immense heartache when I do not get to be with Him in front of the tabernacle.

Jesus speaks: When you love Me more than you love yourself, you will find a way to come to Me in adoration.

Messenger: He told me to ask the priest for a key to the church. I didn't want to.

I want to hug others for Jesus. I see Jesus in them. He loves each person so much.

Satan always works hard on Fridays between 12 and 3:00.

May 8, 2000 - Third Message

Jesus speaks: Please put the messages of Blue Book IV in an index with titles. I ask you to put on the last message of October 16, 1999, Daily Message - Feast of St. Margaret Mary.

Excerpt from October 16, 1999 Daily Message

Jesus speaks: All must relate as God wills.

DO NOT CREATE DEPENDENT RELATIONSHIPS that make you powerful and others needy. YOU ACT IN MY NAME. Pray to know the truth.

Put aside your pride and control.

I came as a Child, pray to the Infant of Prague and the Little Child of Good Health for funds and healing.

Look inside yourself, focus on your own "stumbling blocks".




I DO NOT LIKE SURVIVOR-RESCUER relationships where one makes another needy and never looks at himself.

What happens to you when there is nobody to rescue?

You must all be working on yourselves.

You must be truthful and share in loving truth in intimate relationships, not blaming, but lovingly sharing how you feel to promote oneness and the good of both parties.

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)


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.


Question for married couples and others in intimate relationships:

Q: How do I feel when I think I am not as important to you as I once was?

Jesus speaks: My child,

My love is so deep. I loved all to My death. I want you to realize loving deeply is not like the world tells you about love. Love becomes more beautiful as you grow in deeper oneness. I LOVE YOU. JESUS.
