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 9, 2000 - Second Message

Messenger: Jesus wishes the following Blue Book IV messages to appear:

July 30, 1994 - My Life Is Your Life to Follow

Jesus speaks: Come unto Me all who are weary and find rest for your soul. Be an empty vessel so My love can flow through you as an open pipe. You must rid yourself of all guilt imposed on you by the devil. Pray for humility to know the truth and deal with the truth. Forget your failings after you have confessed them. I am the Good Shepherd, I know Mine and they follow Me. My life is your model to follow, study Me and My ways and pray to Me constantly.

I am the Good Shepherd, I tend to My sheep. You are guarded. I go with you and give you all you need.

Do not stray, stay close to Me and follow Me. Do not look to the world. Keep your focus on Me.

Oh, I love you with the tenderest of all hearts. Oh, I am your most precious Jesus. Meditate on My life in the rosary, all 15 decades. Live My life and that of My Mother in your actions.

Messenger: I feel their oneness in heart. I feel this unity so strong today. To be with Him is to be united to my Mother. I am not dealing with Him alone. She is there, united to Him.

Jesus speaks: I am the Good Shepherd, I know Mine and they follow Me. Open your heart to My ways, not what you think is the way, but what My ways are for you this day..

Your children need your attentiveness. You want to please them and let them do their thing. You obey Me, they obey you. You need time alone with them every day. You need to play with them everyday. Treasure our moments together and being with your children.

I am Jesus, your ardent lover. I love you when you are doing all things. You must be with them and realize how close I am when you are doing the will of the Father.

I am with you when you play games. I am with you all day, very close, inside of your heart. My Heart beats as one with yours. You are My beating heart in this world. Spread My love to all. Your job is to love, to see My loved ones, to smile and be Me to those you touch. Love given to your brothers is of utmost importance.

I love you, I love through you. Ask yourself, how would Christ treat this person, beloved creation of My Father?

You are here to love God with your whole heart and love your neighbor as yourself. Doing My will is doing your duties. You love to pray, but you must take care of yourself and your family.

You are My hands. You are My Heart. You are Me to this world. I need you to interact with people, even though you would rather pray and be alone with Me. You are My body to this world. Act as I would act. Love for Me, My sweet one. You are My Heart beating in this cold world.

I am close to you at every moment, no matter what you are doing.

I am your precious Jesus, forever by your side and in your heart and ardently on fire for love of you. Love for Me! First and foremost - always love.

July 30, 1994 - After Communion - St. Gertrude’s Church

I Receive the Same Jesus That Died for Us

Messenger: I love Jesus so much. After Communion I wanted to be so close to Him and for Him not to leave. I was filled up with such longing, intense longing, wanting more.

Oh, how, sweet Jesus, do I ever tell you, God, that I love you? You are truly God and you come and dwell inside of Me. I am filled with such emotion to realize you are here and to know Who you are.

I realized this is truly Jesus Who died on the cross and called out from the cross to His Father. This is He, inside of me, that same, exact person. God inside of me! Filled with such emotion, wonder, excitement, longing for more knowledge of Him, to the point of tears, I could hardly stand it to realize this is truly the same Jesus Who was on the cross.

I felt the consecrated Host on my tongue and knew it was the very Jesus Who died on the cross. I could hardly stand it. I love you, Jesus, so much. I love You, I love You, I love You!

My heart pants for love of God. He is truly God. Mary is so close to Him. I feel her union when I say His name.

The more I pray the rosary, the more I see them so united. To be united to Jesus is to be united to Mary.

This, I feel so intensely in my heart. I can’t even put it on paper. I love her so much that when I get near her statue I cry.

She is truly calling us to her Son. To pray the rosary is to unite in a special way with Them. The rosary lives in my day, the mysteries of Their lives are in my thoughts. It is so wonderful to be united to Them in my life. I love Them so much.

They are truly with us. Realizing this presence is drawing me ever closer to Them. I run to Them when I want to cry or express my joy, They are so real to me. They never ever leave. They love us so much. I love Them so much, my pen is unable to write even a minute amount of my heartfelt feelings.

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
