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: This is a continuation of the message that appeared yesterday. It should be seen as one entire entry and used as such.
We feel full many times when we eat food.
Think of having a fullness of life rooted in Him from daily reception of the Eucharist and daily openness to His word.
I had parched lips, my soul, my heart had shrunk in my chest, the clamor of the earth was removed, the pleasures that danced before my eyes were no longer there and I stood naked against a cold dark night. The electricity and waves that once entered my home and carried information in and out were quieted.
I heard the dripping of a faucet once full of water and the pressure behind the water made it come with great force. Now the pressure, the water, all was gone, but this last drip.
It reminded me, what is left when I stand naked against the dark sky of the night when I breathe my last breath?
What will I take with me?
Did I allow dirty sound waves to echo in my walls in my house, that filled my little innocent children's minds with the poison of the world?
Did the automation of the world bring me and my family closer to God and His Kingdom?
Did all the "junk" I thought was so important matter now when I knew at that moment there was no turning back, and the money I once thought was so important was really no better than 30 pieces of silver?
What I left behind was the memory of a man, created by God to love, to love God and others, to further His Kingdom, to lead more and more souls to heaven.
I feel it coming on, the struggle to breathe is too great now, I just must let go.
My body is withered, the sickness has filled my body, it seems decrepit and in great ruin now.
I once worshipped my body, made it my god. I fed it and wanted its vain pleasures, I wanted to be loved by the people of the earth. I thought if they accepted me then I would feel good.
Most of them never really cared, for they were busy worrying about being accepted themselves.
I never reached that fullness of life where from the joy within I just gave love for the sake of doing God's work.
I ran from Him, the Creator, I made my own plans, I did my own will, I battled to get ahead and today as I stand naked with the chill of death outside my door and the coldness of my body's chill running up and down my spine, the world will soon be a thing of the past and I won't take anything with me.
The dream of the wanderer, the one who seeks and never finds.
What our souls crave is oneness with God and with one another.
Not a "sexy" love that is unclean, but a love that is in the heart, deep in our hearts rooted in Him.
To be consumed with a love so deep inside, to exist deep in His Heart will help us to love properly as we love in Him.
He is love. He wants oneness, love rooted in Him.
There are so many souls at war in their hearts, struggling between the world and the Creator. We live in His world, we were created by Him. We are meant to live by His design, it is the only one there is.
In the end the Vinegrower will gather the fruit, the good fruit He will take home to Himself, the bad fruit will be cast aside and be left to rot.
Oh my God, help us. Open our eyes to the truth. Stamp out the evil roots, the weeds that are choking out the tender shoots.
Plant our hearts on fertile soil and save us, God.
Save us from this den of iniquity.
The enemies surrounded them on all sides and it looked like the light of day would never come.
The chaff was burned and the tender shoots were now beginning to emerge.
The fertile soil was the hearts beating in the Heart of the Savior.
Hark, a light is dawning against that black night.
The Lady comes out of the dark night now, shining in brilliant light against that building.
A cornerstone rejected by the builders.
She appears on that corner to lead men to the Heart of her Son.
The building was black, the night cold, the corner busy with shoppers looking for their wares.
A sale was there, a card, one that said, "Give your heart, your life to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary," and lo and behold - He, the Divine Reaper opened their eyes and against the morning light they saw her, the Lady Clothed with the Sun, Our Lady of Fatima in the Americas.
"A land of freedom", you say. A Statue of Liberty in New York.
A Lady of Fatima, a Lady Clothed with the Sun, a Lady of the South in Clearwater, Florida.
From Manhattan, dirty with city dust, to the Lady appearing by a strip mall and the dust of a spiritual degradation. She comes a Lady bringing forth her children in anguishing labor.
Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman, robed with the sun, standing on the moon, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. She was pregnant, and in labour, crying aloud in the pangs of childbirth.
Messenger: The beasts have entered our homes through cords in our walls.
Remember the blackout in New York - several days before this blackout Our Lady indicated this would happen in a rosary. We see physical things, dark skies and dirty buildings, but we don't see the blackness of the hearts and souls of our society. We see the dead children, but don't see their spiritually dying souls within. Our children are dying, Our Lady says:
"Wake up America, I appear the Lady of Fatima in the Americas,
Our Lady of Guadalupe, the Lady Clothed with the Sun, I appear
the Lady of the Universe to lead you to the Heart of my Son."
QUEEN OF PEACE
God the Father spoke: "This is My beloved Son in Whom I am well pleased. Listen to Him."
Messenger: Jesus appeared transfigured on the cross August 20, 1997, and the Father said, "This is My beloved Son in Whom I am well pleased. Listen to Him."
Come, oh God, OPEN OUR EYES!!!
Q: How do I feel in my heart when I am divided with you?

Enlighten our minds, strengthen our wills, purify our consciences, rectify our judgment, set our hearts on fire, and preserve us from the misfortunes of resisting Your inspirations. Amen.
Messenger: I was alone in All Saints Church after Mass and Communion in front of the tabernacle when I saw the Sacred Heart. It was red around the outside, then a layer of yellow and then the brightest light in the center. I felt heat and it looked like an open furnace.
I thought about it all day and it instantly gave me peace and warmth in my heart. This is the purpose of these letters, to draw hearts to the ardent on-fire love of Jesus. I received the following message that day: Open your heart to the fire of God's love. He is ablaze in your heart. He wants to dwell in you and love you and others through you. Love God, yourself, and one another and experience the fire set aglow in your heart and experience the warmth of His love.
October 6, 1993
Messenger: Note: Early in the morning of October 6 I was awakened by the sound of knocking and the song, "Oh, the Lady is calling, she is calling you now," playing. Then the first reading at Mass that morning was about Jesus knocking.
In the afternoon I went to Adoration at St. Gertrude's Church. The Blessed Sacrament was exposed and, while adoring Jesus, I closed my eyes. I saw an image of Jesus, His face turned sideways. The image lasted about two minutes, then faded away slowly. As it faded an image of a monstrance came into view. This was signifying Jesus' True Presence to me and His calling me to spread devotion to Jesus in the Eucharist and adoration before the tabernacle.
That same night, after Communion at Mass in Dayton, I heard a voice from behind me say "Rita." I turned around and no one was there. I have had many images of doors. Jesus has called me by knocking to write these letters for you. You are being called to open your hearts and let Him dwell within you. He loves you so deeply. (See also the November 2 message.)
Jesus speaks: I am the Lord, thy God and you shall not have any gods before Me. Come and be with Me, child. I make your heart filled with joy. I comfort you. I sanctify you. I make you light and you turn only to Me in your prayers and cry out for My mercy, My grace and My love. All is upon you, little ones. All in this world is so useless. My hand is set on you to do My work. I need you free to be with Me here in My church. Remember My face, then the monstrance. You, My child, will see Me. I will make Myself known to you. You must come every day and be with Me, by yourself. One hour for us each day. Do not short Me. Be here for Me. I long to be with you and share Myself with you. Turn not away and toward other things. My concerns are your only concerns. Turn to Me and be attentive to all I tell you. All else is of no account.
I am your God and I love you. I need you to deliver these messages. You must stay fixed totally on Me. Be here that I might work in you, little one. I cannot make you come. I am telling you that which I desire. Do whatever it takes to be with Me alone each day. Pray to Me constantly. You are not to be of this world. That is why you feel like a misfit. You cannot do this work and be worldly. You must let go and trust entirely in Me.
I am truly with you, little one. We are as true lovers. I wait for you and you want so much to be with Me. You know how you long to be here. You must see how Satan puts other things in your way. You must outsmart him and realize I want you with Me in church. All else is insignificant. You have now seen My face from the side, child. It is Me, Jesus, Who loves you. You are not losing anything. You are gaining My love and our relationship. Hold on to Me, child. Totally trust and be with Me. Nothing else is of any account. I am your God and I am jealous. I want your time-here. I want your time in prayer. I want you-alone. All else is insignificant. I fill your heart with all good things and I am there in every step you take.
I am Jesus, Son of the Living God. Come, child, I wait and I wait for you. Don't keep Me waiting. I beg you to come. Tell others you are busy. Your love awaits you and I am God, child. One hour alone with Me each day. No excuses. I want to be with you, child. I want to show you more but you do not come long enough or you sleep. Be with Me, My child. I wait, I wait, I wait. I want you with Me. I love you. Listen to Me and be not afraid.
March 13, 1994 5:45 p.m.
Messenger: I was overtaken by an intense unrest. I was compelled to go to the tabernacle. I felt such suffering, suffering that Jesus suffered so for us and that everyone is so busy about their lives. Suffering for the indifference to Him and how He loves us despite our neglect! It was awful. I felt as I had on Christmas.
Jesus speaks: I am the Lord, thy God. Thou shalt not have any gods before Me. I must be first in your life.
Messenger: If you place any woman, man, children, food, clothing or any other little things above Him, you are not doing His will.
Jesus speaks: I died for you, sweet one. I allow you to suffer. This is suffering. You are given this to know how I suffered. You I only give such little things. I suffered, sweet one. I suffered, bloodied, bruised and beaten. Blood rolled down My cheeks. My head was pierced with sharp thorns. They spat on Me. They whipped Me. They beat Me on My head, My precious head. They hit Me on My thorns and the pain was so intense--the piercing thorns! I was slapped hard by these senseless ones. Oh, such evil in the hearts of those who beat Me, the Son of God!
My whole Body ached from head to toe. I suffered so, My child. You will never know how I suffered for love of you. I am God and I loved all My precious ones to My death--and they ignore Me!
Oh, how I suffer from this wounded heart. They will never know what love I have to give them. They will never know how I, God, love them. They are so busy with their worldly lives!
You must tell them how I wait for them. I wait. I want them to come and I will give them such love! Tell them, Rita, tell them! Your discontent is from what emotions I give you and you keep them inside. I want all to know Me and My love. I am crying out to you, little one. Tell them, tell them. Do not waste any time. I am crying out for you to spread this message. I want you to tell all of My love and how I am waiting. Emotion! Emotion! I am crying out to you in your heart!
I long for their love. I died for them. How do I make them know if you, to whom I speak, hold back? I want you to get the messages out, child.
I loved all My beloved ones to My death. I love you this way this day. I am Jesus. I am begging you to not hold back this emotion.
Oh, child, My beloved ones are blind and are going down the road that leads to nowhere. You must preach My message. You must distribute My letters. You must tell all how I wait here!
Go to My faithful ones. Spread the messages at the Center. Keep them in your car. You will be called on in an instant and I will speak My message to My beloved ones through you.
Ready yourself for a big boom. No one is listening. I am crying out to you. Prepare your brothers. They are in darkness. Their souls are dying inside of them. Some come to Me with such indifference in Communion.
I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I am on fire for love of them. I am Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God. I call you to this state of urgency. Move your friends by this urgent letter. There is no more time to waste. I call you all here to deliver this message personally to you. I am Jesus. I am begging each of you to spread My message. Tell them of My ardent love. In each moment you waste, souls will be lost.
I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I am your God. I am calling to you. Will you listen or will you be numb to My pleading? I yearn for your love. Come and sit with Me every day. Sit in front of My tabernacle so I can give you what you need. Pray the Prayer for Union with Jesus.
I am Jesus, the Son of God. I cry out to you to preach My love. Spread these messages. Tell all you meet that I, Jesus, am alone. I am in your midst and I love you this very day. I wait for you in the tabernacle. Come and be with Me every day. This is all that you need. I give you everything. All will work when you come to Me to get your supplies.
Come to Mass and Communion daily. I wait for you to come and be in union with Me. I want to be so close to you. I love you all and I am asking you each to busy yourself about your love affair with Me. Make Me first in your life. Give Me all you are. Pray My Prayer for Union all through the day.
It is your union with Me that will change this world. You will light the lights of the souls in darkness. They will see the might of God in your soul. Energy will be emitted from your very being. You will be as you are, My most important workers, just in your being, if you surrender and be about our love affair!
It's so simple. Come to Me, be united in Communion, pray with Me in silence after Communion, pray to the Holy Spirit for all of His gifts. Pray, lay hands on each other for strength. I am Jesus. I am alive. I will live in you in such a way that you will do such wonders, just in your being more in love with Me.
I love you all dearly. Open yourselves. Be selfless and let Me possess your soul! I love you. Jesus
Song: To Jesus' Heart All Burning
Come to me, Lord, and possess my soul. Come into my heart and permeate my soul. Help me to sit in silence with You and let You work in my heart.
I am Yours to possess. I am Yours to use. I want to be selfless and only exist in You. Help me to spoon out all that is me and be an empty vessel ready to be filled by You. Help me to die to myself and live only for You. Use me as You will. Let me never draw my attention back to myself. I only want to operate as You do, dwelling within me.
I am Yours, Lord. I want to have my life in You. I want to do the will of the Father. Give me the strength to put aside the world and let You operate my very being. Help me to act as You desire. Strengthen me against the distractions of the devil to take me from Your work.
When I worry, I have taken my focus off of You and placed it on myself. Help me not to give in to the promptings of others to change what in my heart You are making very clear to me. I worship You, I adore You and I love You. Come and dwell in me now.
-God's Blue Book, January 17, 1994
You Shed Your Blood for All
April 24, 1994 After Communion 8:00p.m.
Note: I saw an inner vision in my heart so clearly and felt it.
Messenger: I see Your blood, so red and so thick. It is by Your blood that we are saved. You shed Your blood for us-red and thick, real human blood. Oh, Jesus, You are so good to us to give Your very own blood.
Oh, Lord, I love You. I love You so much. Please, Lord, let me feel Your presence. Let me feel You more alive within me. I see Your blood, so red and so thick. It makes it so real to me. This is the cup of salvation. You gave Your very last drop of blood for us. You, God, did this for us. How can I not meditate on this? You shed Your very own blood for me. Oh, Jesus, I love You so. I want to do what You call me to do. I am weak. I am worldly. I am so full of self. How do You love me so with all these faults. You loved me so to shed Your blood. I see it so thick and so red. It makes it so real to think of it streaming, so thick and red, from under Your thorns, down Your cheeks and into Your eyes and Your ears. And You chose to do this, Jesus, because You loved me.
Oh, Jesus, I love You so! You are so good. I do not even know You yet. I want to know You and love You more and I know so little. My heart aches to know You more. I yearn from my chest to know You. Please tell me more of Yourself. Open me and let me experience more of You, Lord. I love You so. I want to tell all of Your Passion and death. I want to read Your letters and tell them how You bled such deep red, thick, real blood just for them. You gave Your very own blood for love of us.
Oh, Jesus, Jesus, I see Your blood so clearly, beading. This makes Your sufferings so real to me. Oh, Jesus, You Are real. You were a real, live, human being, and You were God, yet You gave Your very blood, Your very life, for love of me and for love of each and every person individually.
Oh, Jesus, You did this for my dear brothers. You loved them so much You shed Your blood for them. Teach me more how to love those You love. I love with such reservations. You love with no reservations. To Your death You gave Your all for me and my brothers. Who am I not to see their preciousness, that You loved them so much that You died for them? Teach me to love those You love, all my brothers, to realize You shed Your red, thick blood for them.
Oh, Jesus, I see Your blood, so thick and red, when they pierced Your head with thorns-because the head really bleeds-but You bled so! I wonder how much You had left after all of Your lesions. Oh, Jesus, You gave it all-thick, red blood. You gave every drop for love of us. You held nothing back until Your very death. You shed it all, all You had, for love of me. Teach me to love, Lord, to love those You shed Your very own blood for. Who am I to love some and not some? You loved us all to Your very death. Oh, Jesus, I have so far to go to know You and Your ways. I come to You with longing and burning in my chest. The more I know You, the more I cannot even fathom You. You are so beautiful, so perfect! You are my Savior, my lover, my precious Jesus. You are God and You shed Your blood for me. Oh, Jesus, such dignity and honor and worth You gave to us! Take my life. I am Yours, Lord. I love You so. I want to spread Your love. I am, oh, so weak! Show me Your way.
I am Yours!
Jesus speaks: I love you so, My child. You cannot even imagine a small amount of My love. Focusing on My Passion teaches you a little of My love. I would die for you, dear one, this very day. Just for you! I would shed every drop of blood. I would go through every pain. I would endure all My suffering for you today. I love you so. Be with Me. Stay with Me. Pray with Me. I await you, My beloved. I am truly present in the Eucharist. It wounds Me so to love you so much and be ignored. I have all you need. I have all you will ever need. I am Jesus Christ, the Son of God. I am your beloved Jesus. Oh, I love you, child. Preach My love, please. My beloved ones are suffering. You have the key to their life. It is the ardent, on-fire love of Jesus. this day preach My love to all your brothers. I love them so.
I died for you. Do you even realize? Do you think about My death and that I gave My life for you? It is in meditating on My Passion that you receive a golden reward. You learn so much from My Passion and death. Contemplate My walk with Me. Feel My agony. Know the way. Walk it with Me and you will know My great love for you. You will never know My love until you meditate on My Passion. It is there you know Me so well. You will learn so much from this study. Pray the sorrowful mysteries. Walk the way of the cross. I came and shed My blood for you. I would do it this very day.
Oh, My beloved ones, when will you turn to Me for that which you seek? Search you a barren desert, read you empty books! Come to Me and stay with Me after you receive the Eucharist. I will teach you such profound knowledge. Come to Jesus, sit in front of My tabernacle. I know all things. I will teach you the real things you need to know. I am Jesus, the Son of God. I am your love.
I am the Way, the Truth and the Life. You search, you seek, you find nothing. You are empty inside. When will you quit trying, trying to get more of what gives you only emptiness? I give you what you need. You go to empty closets. You keep searching in more empty closets. You never find anything. What do I tell you? I give you manna from heaven. You keep looking for your answers in a world that will vanish before your eyes. Your treasures are so momentary. You find nothing, yet you keep searching. You would think you would get the message, but you try even harder. Do you get it?
I am the Way, I am the Truth, I am the Life. If you want life, you come to the source. You seek, you wander, you find emptiness, yet you seek more emptiness. I am the Way. I am the only Way. You search, you seek in vain, you find absolutely nothing that gives you what you need. I am your all. Come to Me. Let Me feed you manna from heaven. I am Jesus. I am your all. I am the Son of God. Harken and be filled by Me!
The Sorrowful Mysteries
May 10, 1994
Note: These letters were received on April 25, 1994, at Medjugorje, from Our Lady.
1. The Agony in the Garden.
Jesus speaks: I knew full well every blow, every wound, the crowning, the crucifixion. I saw My mother's suffering. I knew all that would happen. I sweat blood. I suffered so much mental anguish for you, beloved one, for you. I said yes to all I knew would follow, yes to you, knowing how you one day would love Me, too. Oh, how I love you. Will you say yes to the suffering I send to you? Will you say yes to loving My beloved ones? Say yes to Me today. I loved you so.
2. The Scourging at the Pillar.
Mary speaks: I am the Immaculate Heart. I love you with my tender Heart. I heard the blows they gave my Son. I could scarcely look up. I heard the blows, the awful blows. My Son stood in silence while they beat Him.
Jesus speaks: All the whipping, all the brutality! The blows covered My entire body. I bled profusely. I stood in My own blood. These were My beloved ones who beat Me. They tore My flesh until it hung from My body and they laughed at their handiwork.
Do your brothers persecute you and say mean things to you? Do as I did. Respond with love. Anyone who is hating you is suffering from connectedness to Me. Pray for their conversion. Live to help them get to heaven.
3. Crowning with Thorns
Jesus speaks: Think of someone you love very deeply yelling awful accusations at you. How it wounds your heart, My child. I sat there while they crowned Me with thorns and they hollered awful accusations at Me. They were My beloved ones, yet they stood there spitting at Me and hollering awful things at Me. Those whom I dearly loved, and they mocked Me and insulted Me and hurled their ugly hatred and lies at Me. I accepted all they did with a bleeding Heart and forgave them and loved them still.
Oh, you do not know suffering. Suffer for Me and lessen My load. This world is wounding My aching Heart. People are indifferent and hateful. They mistreat one another and are proud of their actions. Pray for your beloved persecutors. Don't hate them. It is as with those who tore My flesh and mocked Me. They were so engulfed in darkness! They did not know what they were doing.
All that matters is how you love Me and one another. Love those who hate you. My way is a hard way. When they hurt you and holler every ill thing at you, look to heaven and praise the Lord for the trial. It is in suffering that you are drawn closer to My precious Heart. I shed My blood for you. I suffered for you. Will you not suffer when I ask you to?
4. Carrying of the Cross
Mary speaks: I could scarcely stand to walk the way with Him. I was so sick at what they had done but I wanted to be with my Son. I walked by the grace of God.
Jesus speaks: My suffering was intensified by the sorrow and suffering of My mother. My eyes met hers and I saw her red, teary face. All they did to Me, but to watch My beloved mother suffer! She heard the cross as it thumped up the hill. The sounds were so loud and, at the sight, she had to look away.
Stand by Me and walk this road to Calvary. Listen and see My
beaten body. Hear the jeers of the crowd. Hear the thumping of the cross. Listen when it
falls hard on Me and I can scarcely go any more. Walk with Me and be there, then think of
the little crosses I ask you to carry. Do not put them down. Accept them for Me. It is in
your crosses that you are drawn closer to Me. I endured all this suffering for deep and
ardent love of you and I would do it today for you alone.
5. The Crucifixion
Mary speaks: They hung Him on the cross. I was so weak I could barely stand. I was held up by John. I watched my Son in such agony. Oh, my beloved Son! What had He done to deserve such suffering? He loved you to His death. He was crucified for love.
Jesus speaks: How do I tell you that I died for you? Do you even know I would do it today, just for you? They nailed My beautiful hands and feet to the cross. Big, gigantic nails they pounded into My precious hands. Such hard hearts! They pounded the nails through My feet. Blood spurted out and they continued. Such hardness of hearts. Look at your hands, My child. Would you allow someone to nail them to a cross? Would you withstand this torture for love? This is My love for you. It is not a little lip service love. It is the love that made Me lay down My life for you.
Surrender. I call you to surrender. Open your arms as I did when I died on the cross. Let all your worldly possessions drop around you and you will experience the joy of being free, united only to Me, of letting go and knowing that I, God, tend to your every need. To My death on the cross I loved you and I love you this way this very day. Let go and give it all to Me. I will care for you far better than you could for yourself. I am God and I love you more than you can love yourself.
Messenger: Jesus is dead, hanging on the cross, arms outstretched. His feet are not even on the ground. He is hanging by nails on a piece of wood. What do we hold on to? He wants us in midair in total surrender.
Jesus speaks: Oh, little ones, how you squander your possessions. How you hold on to people, how you won't let go! See Me in total surrender. I gave My very life for you. What do you hold on to, My little ones? Little bits and pieces you give to Me and you hold tightly to your lives. All will go up in smoke and only the things of God will remain. Not one pair of shoes do you take with you, only your love given to God and to others.
Song: Jesus, My Lord, My God, My All
March 14, 1994 Before Mass
Messenger: Could I see myself giving willingly as Christ did, allowing people to do to me what they did to Him, and be silent? To be led away, when He had all the power? To see myself put on a cross and let people nail me there when I could have stopped it? Could I see myself giving my body over like that?
He does not ask this of us. He is asking for our surrender and to do His will. To think of giving my body over and having someone nail me to a cross, with little clothing, then hanging in midair! And He did it willingly, for love of us and in obedience to His Father!
What does He ask me to do that I hold back? What does He ask me to surrender? What is He calling me to?
Messenger: The world is numb to God's existence. He is totally here with us this very day. The things of God are all that matters. It is so sad to see the people walk around, so blind to God's existence, as if they are here and this life is the end in itself.
Jesus speaks: It hurts My aching heart to watch men go about their busy lives and pay no heed to Me. They see this world as an end in itself. They have become self-centered and mean. I am love. I come to ask you to die to yourself. It is as though the world and God are on opposite ends of a pole: Selfishness/World--Selflessness/God. There is no middle. To go to the world is to be sick. It is with such sadness that I disclose this to you. I am so upset at the ways of many men. I have been totally left out of their lives and those who go to church do not even comprehend love of God. They have a motionless religion. Love is action. It is on fire. It is from the heart. It has energy! I call you to love of God and love of one another. My death is the way I taught you how to love and be selfless. Look to Me. Meditate on My Passion.
I am Jesus Christ, the Son of God. I am with you, My sweet one. My hand is in everything you experience. Let go and surrender to My love. I am by your side. You are being strengthened for what will come. Let go of your anger and focus only on My love. My hand is in all you experience. Little one, little one, I love you so. Hold tight to My love and do not fear. I am your strength. Surrender to all and know you do not have to do anything. I will act for you.
The devil is taunting you, but I love you immensely. Oh, My little sweet one, surrender to My love. You operate only for love of Me. Satan knows your weaknesses. He aims to trip you up and watch you abandon Me. You will never abandon Me, nor I you. Just surrender and let go. My love is in your heart. I am your strength. You go not alone and you do nothing on your own. I hold you up. I kiss your wounds and you go about My work. Let go of yourself and put yourself in My care. Surrender. Surrender from selfishness. Live only in My love every instant.
I am ever with you, oh, little one. Surrender to My love.
Vision of Mary
May 2, 1994
Messenger: The tenderness of Mary, holding the baby Jesus! See her as she looks so affectionately on her beloved Son, her eyes cast down in such love at her precious baby! See her as she holds the body of her Son after his brutal death on the cross. He is her beloved Son, the same beautiful baby she held. Now she looks with such love on Him Whom she once cared for as a baby.
Such sorrow, her Heart in such pain to behold her Beloved One on her lap! Pain, so intense that her Heart is pierced with a sword. Oh, Mary, Mary, I love you so. I thank you for all you suffered for us. You suffer for our sins because of all of your love for us and Jesus. I am sorry that I have made your suffering so much harder.
You, oh Mary, you, beloved mother, you mother us as you mothered Jesus. You mother us as babies and you mother us when we are suffering.
Mary speaks: I cry for you, my child in your darkness. I cry for the beloved ones of my Son, Jesus. Turn their hearts back to His love. He is suffering for love of those in darkness. Turn their hearts to His intimate love. I am your mother and I thank you for responding to my call.
Messenger: I see that lifeless body of Christ as she holds Him. This has been going on for a month. She holds Him. That must be the optimum of suffering, to hold your lifeless child in your lap, brutally beaten and crucified for loving. He had done nothing. Was this one of Mary's crucifixions? She suffered so! What of her suffering, her steadfastness to behold Jesus, always by His side, watching and suffering? Does Mary suffer by our side as we ignore her and continue to go our way and neglect her Son? She sees her Son and knows how He gave His life. She knows how He suffered. She knows it all, yet she has come and appeared. She begs us to return to Him. What more can she do to draw us to her Son?
What more can He do? He, God, died this brutal death!
How Mary suffered for love of us and love of Jesus!
Mary calls us to her Son. The Lady is calling on behalf of her beloved Son. She suffered the brutal passion, she heard the blows, she walked the walk only by the grace of God. She calls us to her Son. Will we answer?
Song: See the Eyes that Look at Mary
Excerpt from You Are Surrounded by Angels
May 25, 1994 After Communion at All Saints Church 7:l0a.m.
Mary speaks: You, my child, are being taught. You grow in your relationship with God. My way is to lead you to my Son. You will continue to grow in your closeness with God. Your life is your journey to be united with Him more and more. Do not feel anxious for not knowing all at once. You grow each minute of each day in your knowledge and love of God. Do not be anxious about your growth. Be open to what He sends you this moment. Place your heart in His hands and be united to Him. Let go.
Praise God and be at peace. Your heart will grow when you are at peace. You are learning the truths about God. You are growing each day in your love of Him. I am your mother. Thank you for responding to my call.
Mary speaks: I am Mary, your Mother, child. I am here. I love you and I mother each precious child. I love my beloved ones so. Do you love your brothers, the same ones that I mother? I am your Mother. I am their Mother. You are all my children. Love your brothers. Pray to be Christ-like. Turn to my Son. he is the Way, he is the Truth, He is the Life. Come to Him. He has all you need. I am your Mother. Thank you for responding to my call, my little children.
Take Up the Cup of Salvation
June 10, 1994
Jesus speaks: I ask you, My beloved ones, to suffer for souls. Time is so short. Some of your brothers will lose their souls. You must accept your sufferings, My faithful ones. I ask you to pick up your crosses. Life in Me is through the cross.
Your brothers' souls are at stake. Will you suffer for the sake of your brothers? Will you love your brothers as I love you?
Take up the cup of salvation. Realize My crown is not a crown of splendor. It is a crown of thorns. Your life here is passing. Your time is short. Your suffering and prayers can help save souls. Pray the Divine Mercy. Pray the rosary and meditate on My Passion.
Suffer with Me for the sake of your beloved brothers. Your life should be spent to draw your brothers to heaven. When you act, they are learning My ways from you. Do you want your brothers to have life forever in heaven? You must love when they persecute you. Think of their souls. You must accept your crosses without complaint. Accept them with joy and find refuge in My most Sacred Heart.
Come to My Heart for your love. I will refuel you, My beloved child. You cannot do it without My love. Rest in My Heart, dear one. I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus. My Heart is on fire for love of you. Come and be filled with My love. Accept your suffering. The way to Me is through much suffering. The way to help your brothers is through suffering. I ask you to suffer this day with joy. Only in My Heart will you experience the love you need to suffer with joy. Come to Me and come to My Heart. Find your peace and joy there. Do not run to the world. Run to My arms and rest in My Heart!
I love you so. I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
I Give You My Life
May 23, 1994 After Mass at Father Smith's Chapel
Jesus speaks: Oh, beloved of My Father, I give you My life. My life I give to you, My precious one. If they only knew what they hold in their breasts. I am your treasure, little one. I am truly God. I speak to you. I lament their passing. They do not know that they hold Jesus Christ, the Son of God in their breasts. Tell them for Me, My child, tell them. Do not think of yourself, think of those moments we share every day after Communion and know My aching Heart. I am God. I come to them. Tell them I want to be, oh, so much closer with them, deeply in love with them.
Such indifference, such disrespect! They are blind. I am God. Listen to Me. I come to you in your body. Reverence Me. I beg you, do not wound Me with your blindness. I will make all things clear in your sight if you sit with Me. Don't just put in your time. You are here in deepest love with Me, yearning, loving, burning love. You run from My altar. I tell you I am God. You are My beloved ones.
Oh, I can't make you understand. You will not listen. You want your will. You want your word. You are so blind and so worldly dumb. I am truly here, Jesus Christ, the Son of God, Who died for you. What do I do to tell you? You do not listen. You do not, in your stiff-necked ways, comprehend My love, poured to you in the Eucharist! Come unto Me, beloved of My Father. I beg you to open your hearts to the fire of My love.
Messenger: He allows me to experience His emotions to a small degree.
Jesus speaks: When you love someone, sweet one, you share that person's sorrow. I suffer for My beloved ones not to even realize they receive God truly present in the Eucharist.
Messenger: I saw Jesus in a white tunic with a cross on His back. His gown was not really very stained. I saw His crown of thorns. I knew Mary was off to the side and He was looking into her eyes. I felt such sadness. I could see it as plainly as if I were there and experienced the emotion. (Saw in my heart,experienced emotion).
He told me to kneel in front of the tabernacle and praise Him, the one, true God, to soothe His Heart for all of His beloved ones who ran out after Communion. He told me to kneel three times.
After Communion I felt as if my entire chest was full and burning but I felt sadness because He was sad for those who had left. His white tunic was limp and somewhat dirty with dark mud. It was close to the beginning of when He had the cross because He appeared to have some strength. The day was bright and hot. The cross was big and not like a tree, as if it had been made with care.
How is it that Jesus - to make a cross with care for our beloved Savior? What of the minds and hearts of the men who had fashioned His cross? Did they think of what they were doing? Did they even know? What of the indifference and neglect we give to Jesus in Holy Communion? Do we even know? Do we realize that Jesus, the Son of God, waits for us with such longing as we walk away, that He is truly the same Jesus Who died this brutal death on the cross? Are we like those who fashioned His cross with care, not knowing what would become of such a cross?
Are our intentions pure, but we still wrong our brothers as we wrong Jesus when we treat Him with this irreverence before and after Communion? How do we become aware and tuned in to Jesus to know all He is making so clear?
We must listen. He is indeed speaking here. The Holy Spirit gives us His gifts that, where we were blind, we now see. Open our eyes to You, oh, blessed Savior. Let us see, with the eyes of God, all we are so blinded to. Just like this indifference to You is the way we treat our brothers. We do not even know we are neglectful and hurting them!
Jesus speaks: Open your hearts to the love of God. Beg for the gifts of the Holy Spirit. In loving Me, you love the Father. He loves you as I love you. We are one with each other. You are so loved, child, loved by Us. Think of a toddler that is given such love by its parents. We love you beyond your comprehension.
Mary, your mother, is forever by you. You are so loved. Be not blind. Angels and saints walk with you. You have the love of the one, triune God, child, and my own mother. She mothers you, child, no less than she mothered Me. Do not worry for your lives. Our love is surrounding you. You are so favored and blessed, and you fume and fret and go to the world!
Open your eyes and see with your hearts, all that is before you. You need intimacy in your hearts with the one, true God! We are one in you and you will be one in Us. Come and sup with Me, little one. The time is at hand. I give you a land flowing with milk and honey and you run for the barren desert.
Come, come to Me, My babies. You are so loved!
Do Not Walk from Me
May 24, 1994 After Communion At St. Gertrude Church
Jesus speaks: I want you to kneel after Communion. I want you to kneel to comfort My aching Heart for those who leave with Me in their breasts. I am God. I am the same Jesus Who walked this earth. I want praise. I want adoration. I want honor. I want reverence. I want to be proclaimed God within your very body and revered with such honor.
This offends My aching Heart so, to have people leave minutes after I come to them. Tell them. I will tell you every day. I want you to speak out. It is with such ignorance that they leave. They do not know. You must tell them that I am God. I am Jesus, truly present, Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity, in their breast.
My veil will be broken. You will know that I am the Almighty God, truly present in the Eucharist. I am the Son of Man. I want this message to be preached, how I, God, am ardently awaiting their love in Communion. This is the gift of My love. I give Myself to you and you leave. I will tell you every day, if I have to, until you speak. I want this preached so people will realize that this is the great gift I give to them, that this is your treasure. The Holy Eucharist is My Body and Blood. Tell them, tell them, tell them. They do such things because they are blind. I am the Almighty God and I come to you with such love.
I want reverence and honor and respect. I want love. I want your love. I come to you with love. I want your love in return. Please pay attention. This is wounding My aching Heart. People are not aware that I, Jesus Christ, Who suffered so, am no less present in the Eucharist. I love you so. I love them so. I beg you to preach this.
My little ones, such a gift to receive: the Son of God in your breast! And where I am, so are My Father and the Holy Spirit. This is the gift of love. Receive Me, come and sup with Me. I am God and I give Myself to you. Whatever you do after Communion is nothing compared to this gift. The gift I give is Myself. I love you so, little ones. Please spread this message. Your brothers do not know. They are blind. I love them so. I want to be united with them. They must sit with Me. I am God. I am truly present here. If I stood here, would you walk away? I come to you in your body. This is true intimacy! Do not walk from Me. I want this preached. The gift I give is Myself. I love you so!
You Were Hungry and I Sent Manna from Heaven
May 17, 1994 After Mass at Father Smith's Chapel (3 priests were there)
Jesus speaks: I am Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Come to Me. I love you. Be not fixed to the things of this world. Harken to Me, My child. I am truly here. I died that you might live. Tell them and be attentive to Me, for you were hungry and I fed you. I gave you manna from heaven and you knew I truly was present and in your midst. Harken to Me. I call out to you and come with such longing for your love. I wait. I wait. Why do you worry for such useless tasks? Oh, child, God is truly here, but you go after such senseless things. When will you hear? Will you remain deaf forever? Listen, give Me your love, sweet one. I beg you to be attentive to Me. My Heart is aching to love you more. I cry out to you and you do not hear. I am the Alpha. I am the Omega.
Come for My ardent love, child. I cry out to you. Take the time and harken to My pleading. I give you all you need. Why do you go to other places? Oh, I love you, I love you, I love you. I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus, burning and on fire for love of you. I am here. I love you so.
Messenger: There is such burning in my chest to behold You, Jesus Christ, the Son of God. The world stands still and in the moment I catch a glimpse of eternity.
Jesus speaks: I am your God and you know the glories of heaven. What you feel is only a drop in the sea. What glories await him who loves and serves the Lord. Your delights will be beyond any comprehension for I am truly God and I declare it so this very day. You will be with Me forever in heaven! Live to love and serve Me! Do not waste one precious moment in remorse. Live only to draw others to everlasting life. Your job is so important! Souls are at stake. Souls are being lost. You hold the mighty medicine to turn hearts to the ardent on-fire love of Jesus and I say to you, "Come, My beloved ones, creations of My dear Father, worry not for yourselves, but harken to My call to love God and your brothers." It is in the realization of this calling, through Me, that you will help others to be led to heaven.
I am the Way, the Truth, the Life. I lead, you follow. You love and your hearts will radiate Me from inside of you. I want to live from your being. I want to be one in you. I want to operate and reach My beloved ones through you. Harken to My call. Please do not say, "No, I am too busy". Nothing here matters if it is not My work.
Come to Me and be fed by Me Who loved you to My death and beckons you to answer My call. Live in My love and live to love God and your brothers. Nothing else matters, My child.
I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I am on fire, on fire, on fire for love of you! You get up, you walk away and God awaits you, My precious children. I am offended so by your indifference. Come and let Me caress you. Let Me hold you. Let Me feed you. I am God, little ones, do you hear Me?
Messenger: Time stands still and I behold my Lord. His kingdom is not of this world. I behold the Son of God, truly present and in our midst. In the silence we will know His presence. He is truly alive and here with me this day. The closer I get to Him, I become one in Him and He becomes one in me. Oh, such oneness, to be united to God this way! Is anything of any more importance than being one in God? Jesus, make me one in You and let me know Your Father, my Father, through this union with You.
Jesus speaks: Oh, blessed of My Father, to experience the love of the one, triune God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit!
Messenger: How are we so blessed with this love and the love of Mary, our mother? My heart pants for this love of God. That man can achieve such union with God, that we can be one in Him and He one in us is so unbelievable. This is how we share our love with one another. There is a oneness when we ardently love Jesus. We are close to others because of His love in us. The more we love God, the more we can love each other. There is an openness that we have that allows us to love as He loves through us.
Jesus speaks: I will become one in you. You will become one in Me as you open your hearts to My love. Be open, little ones. I want to love you and love through you. Empty yourself of any impurities in your heart. Forgive your brothers. Do not be angry. Keep yourselves clean and free from sin. Go to Confession. Fast, My beloved ones. It is in fasting you are drawn close to Me. Do not give in to yourselves. Discipline yourselves. This will increase your union with Me.
I am God. There is no better reward for your efforts than to achieve union with God. I want this union with you. It is you who keep us apart. Die to yourself, child, and live in Me. You must surrender your lives to Me and let Me operate your very being. Die to self and live in Me.
Messenger: Alleluia. And they knew new life. It was the life of Christ that dwelled within them. Praise the Lord! Praise and honor to the one, true God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
He constantly says, "Unite in My love. I call you to be one in Me. I am sent from the Father that you shall be one in Us."
Jesus speaks: I am He Whose bootstraps you are unworthy to tie, yet I come with such love for you. You will be one in Us. Unite in My love. Go out into the world, spread the gospel, go to the highways and the byways, spread My love. My love is the way. You will unite and become one when you love in Me for there is no division in a heart of God. You must be one in Us. As the Father has sent Me, I send you into the world to spread My love. Will you answer My call? Harken, for time is short. Your brothers are in need of this work. In your actions of love you will preach My gospel. Go and love one another as I have loved you.
Messenger: Unity and love are coexistent.
Hate and love do not coexist.
I must love, love everyone.
He died for my precious brother.
I must love more and more like Him.
He is talking about unity. Unity is only achieved through loving. To hate any man causes division. My heart must be pure, free from all hate. I cannot do this alone. I need God's love to love my brothers as He is calling me to do.
May 29, 1994 Before Mass
Jesus speaks: I am with you, My precious one. I am God. Today is the Feast of the Trinity. God is here, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Praise Us, worship Us, honor Us. We are truly present and ready to take your prayers to Our heavenly court.
The more you know and love Me, the more you know and love the Father, for He is one in Me and I am one in Him. The Father has sent Me to be one in you. Reach with love in your heart for the one, triune God. To know Me is to love the Father. He is your Father. He created you. He loves you. You are His precious creation.
The Holy Spirit is the love that exists between the Father and Son. It is through the Spirit you are given the knowing power to see God. God is one, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, three equal persons in one God. Go to the Spirit. Beg for His gifts to see God, one, holy, true. Go to the Spirit. Ask Him to remove the blinders from your eyes. Where you were blind, you now see. You see with such clarity, you hear with such wisdom, only through the Spirit. You of yourself would not know such things. Beg to be opened to the Spirit. Beg Him to give you His life within you.
Love your Savior Jesus Christ and know how He loves you through the Eucharist. Know that all the love you have for Jesus and He has for you is extended to the Father for they are one with each other.
If you could behold the sight of God, your eyes could not see. You do not reach with your hearts to know God. Pray to the Spirit to open up your hearts and give you the eyes to see. You of yourself are blind and deaf. This is the gift of the Spirit, to know God. Such love pours out to you. Pray to Mary to love through her sinless Heart.
Messenger: God in His magnificence is truly present. How do I love Him? How do I, a mere creature, love God? Only through the Immaculate Heart of Mary can I love with such great love. My precious God, I am so imperfect. Through her sinless Heart, through her ardent love for God, I can love Him more deeply.
Spirit, open my eyes. Fill me. Open my heart. Give me Your life that the life and love of God might dwell within my breast. I beg for Your gifts. I implore You to help me unite more fully with God through Mary.
Jesus speaks: And I came unto you and you were filled with My love, and the power of the Lord shone upon you, the power of the the one, triune God.
Messenger: He is mighty and worthy of all praise. Fall to your knees. Fall and adore Him. Alleluia. Alleluia.
Where We Were Blind We Now See
June 8, 1994 6:15a.m.
Jesus speaks: You search, you look, you wander, you ache, you find nothing. Oh, little one, when do you learn? You go to man to ask the things of God. Pray to the Spirit, beg Him for His gifts. No man knows what God alone knows. You will wander. You will seek. You will find nothing of what you need to know.
I will teach you My ways. I will support and comfort you. Creatures are as they are. They are imperfect, My little one. You must come to Me. I am truly here. It is your doubt that has caused you such anxiety. No one will confirm to you what I alone am telling you.
Where you were blind, My child, you now see. You learn your lessons. You are given trials. You suffer. But what lessons you learn that draw you close to Me!
I am talking to you, child. God! I know all things. I am talking in your heart. You go to man, you get answers from man. Go to God. Pray to the Spirit. He gifts you with wisdom, understanding, knowledge. You are strengthened in His love, love that He alone can give. Will you come to God with your heart open? Will you wait for His time? Will you accept your trials I so sweetly use to teach you? Will you be blind or will you see, not with eyes, child, but in your hearts, what you need to see?
Go to man, get things of man. Go to God to learn the things of God. No man knows what God wants to tell you in your heart.
Messenger: Spirit of God, gift us with Your gifts. Give us all we need to know You, God, and to know Your Will for us. Strengthen us to follow You and not be led astray with a quick answer. Give us the fire of Your love!
You, God, are three in one, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Three Persons, one God. Give us all we need to know, love and serve You in this world and draw others to You. Open our eyes. Where we were blind, we now see.
Jesus speaks: I will sustain you, I will reach down, I will lift you up, to such heights that only I can reach. You are reaching for the answers of God in the world. Go to God for your answers. I'm communicating to you in your heart this very day. I am God and you will know Me in your heart. Look inward, be in silence, pray to the Spirit to know.
June 12, 1994
Jesus speaks: You are he who goes to a carpenter to learn to make a cabinet. You know nothing. You do not have any idea of what you are to do. The carpenter knows exactly. He has a procedure whereby his plan will be accomplished. Every detail must be observed. He is the Master. You do not have the talent. You need talent to do woodwork. If you were given the talent and the directions, you could accomplish this task with such beauty.
I am the carpenter. You are he who needs to be taught. You lack the talent. You need the gifts of the Spirit to accomplish My task! You come to Me in total ignorance. You are open, the Spirit fills you with the gifts. You have everything you need to do My work. The Father created you to accomplish His tasks. You are perfect. You must come open. You must know the plan. The plan is His Will for you. If you do not follow the plan, the cabinet will not be built correctly.
I am the Master. I guide you. I love you. I give you all you need. I walk you through every move. If you try on your own, you have a problem. You know not the way to build cabinets. You know not the way to Me on your own. You must come to Me to be taught. To go it alone is to your own detriment.
Oh, little one, it is so simple. You, in your will, want to work your own plans. You know not how to do it. Only I can teach you what you need to know. Oh, please come to Me. I have all you need. The Spirit fills you with the gifts to know, love and serve God. To go it alone is like trying to build the cabinet with no knowledge of woodworking. Oh, little ones, I love you. Come to Me. Let Me teach you. The Will of the Father is the happiness for your life.
I am Jesus Christ, Son of God. I am God. I, God, long to be with you and teach you. Go not off on your own. Come to Me. I love you so!
I Am by Your Side Always
June 16, 1994 3:15a.m.
Jesus speaks: My little one, be of a clean heart. When you are weary, come to My Heart. I am Jesus, Son of the Living God. I talk in your head. You see Me, you know I am here. Fear not for I will sustain you.
Life here is so short. You must focus only on My love. I truly talk to you. You have nothing to fear. In the days that follow, no matter how difficult, I will be by your side. You must have faith in Me and My work for you.
Your job is to promote My ardent love. Never lose sight of the fact that souls will be saved by your efforts to do this. This is no little matter. The devil constantly will try, in these days, to trip you up. You will be tested to stay steadfast in My love.
I do not want to upset you, only to warn you and tell you that souls are at stake. My letters will turn men's hearts to Me. You must constantly focus on My love for you. Circulate your letters. They are so vital to turning men to the love of God.
Soon your burden will be lifted and you will feel some relief. You must be in constant prayer. Being with your children is a prayer for you. Come to the Center. You feel Real Presence there. I will give you miracles there. Pray in the chapel with your children. They will become closer to Me through prayers as you spend time playing with them. You need simplicity in your life. Live only for love of Me.
Messenger: (I see little white lights on my notebook).
In Your Suffering, Become Intimate with Me
June 16, 1994 3:15a.m.
Ed. Note: The following occurred during the praying of a rosary at home.
Messenger: (Agony). You, Jesus, did not lose Your focus on the Father, and You still had peace in Your Heart, but You sweat blood, so I think about my mental anguish. Such anguish, to sweat blood! Do You know mental anguish? You were a human and You knew You were going to die this brutal death. How I anguish over doing what You tell me to do. How ashamed I feel when You ask so little!
Jesus speaks: (Scourging). They beat Me. I held nothing back. They tore My beloved flesh. I bled. They took My body, tied Me to a pole and beat Me. I could not move. I was bound. I give you freedom to choose to do little things and you say no. I could have broken the cords, I was God. I stayed bound, and subject to this awful violation of Me, for love of you. I love you. Don't ever say no to little acts I ask you to do to prove your love for Me. This offends Me so! I gave so much for you, little one. The acts I ask you to do are for your own good.
Accept suffering, accept it as your life with Me. I ask you to suffer. You miss My lessons I so sweetly teach. Quit complaining, suffer in silence, suffer with joy. Love your children, do not be glum around them. I call you to hard tasks. Do the hard things. Watch the results! Strive to be a saint. Saints never complain. Suffer My scourging by joyful acceptance of suffering. It is My way. It will save souls!
Messenger: His Passion has meaning in how He suffered. How little He asks of us, yet we cannot even do it!
(Carrying of the Cross). Their eyes met, both in acceptance, both suffering, both silent, both knowing they had to accept it and He could stop it at any moment. He did it totally. They wept inside. How do we weep when we are offended? Did they holler from the housetops or weep softly? With such pain inside, her Heart pierced with such sorrow, as she beheld her beloved Son! Both weeping in silent surrender in such brutality.
Is this a lesson in silence? Silent acceptance! This is my lesson. I am complaining. Where am I? Certainly not a light that shines in the darkness! Doing His Will is silent acceptance. "She did it, He did it? It is so hard." How blind we are to so much!
(Crucifixion). She stood under the cross and cried to herself. Silent acceptance. She didn't protest.
How the body wants all to know how we suffer. Take away the pain. Did she take pain medicine or did He? They accepted in silence this horror. And We complain and complain!
Jesus speaks: Suffer, My child, with joy. This is a key to sainthood. Pull your phones from the walls and take your complaints to My Heart. You are missing such rewards and I have to give you more suffering to learn the lesson.
Messenger: Sweet surrender! It is as if I have a secret with Jesus and it binds me to Him. It is hard, but then I feel such unity with Him. He and I know, as Mary and Jesus felt when they looked into each other's eyes, such oneness to share the suffering. Such oneness, to share My intimate suffering with Jesus alone! What a treasure I lose, to miss such an intimate connection with Jesus! We have a secret. This creates such intimacy! He knows my heart. I mature in My relationship with Him.
Intimacy is sharing with the exclusion of others. To be intimate with Him, I share things with Him and not others. Suffering is such intimacy!
Jesus speaks: To suffer and carry it and be glum casts a shadow on your fellows. To suffer and share only with Me creates a love, a bond and a trust that cements our hearts together.
Messenger: The deepest suffering was shared between Jesus and Mary, looking at each other in total silence. Silence is the key to receiving benefits from suffering. "Suffer for Me with joy! Receive such a reward!"
Jesus speaks: Do you wear your problems on your chest? "Oh," you say, "I have so much to learn and I fail so miserably," and I say you are blind and you must come to Me to be taught! Suffer with joy and in silence!
Messenger: He is showing us constantly how we can have a deeper union with Him. It is I who keep myself away from Him.
Suffering is a bearing down. When you suffer, there is a weight you carry on your back. He asks us to suffer, to carry this cross with joy. As He carried His cross, He asks us to carry ours with greatest joy.
Suffer with Jesus and Mary
June 16, 1994
Jesus speaks: Look, child, at Us as We suffer all through this Passion. Quiet acceptance, a sharing in our eyes meeting! I ask you to suffer in silence. Carry your cross. Do not give your burdens to others. You are this light that shines in the darkened world. If I give you sufferings and you complain, your light does not shine.
You can accept your cross or reject it. If you accept your cross, you should carry it, not give the burden to others. This is sainthood. This develops intimacy with Me and our eyes meet and we know the suffering, as the suffering between My mother and Me!
The way to Me is to pick up your cross and follow Me as I trod in silent surrender.
Messenger: Their eyes meeting is the key. This is how our eyes meet with theirs. This is intimacy. This is union in their Hearts. His Heart was lanced, her Heart was pierced.
Jesus speaks: Bring your suffering to Our Hearts and be united to Us. In suffering there is pain, sometimes physical pain, sometimes pain in the heart. There is a bearing down with pain, the carrying of a load.
Messenger: If He went out in such suffering, why do we think we should not have to suffer?
Jesus speaks: Life is a bittersweet symphony, My child. You have a mixture of suffering and pleasure. The way to Me is the cross, to relinquish your life here and live it totally for Me.
Suffering suffered for Me lasts forever. It is the crown I wore that won your salvation. It is in your suffering you will help to save souls.
You are not here for momentary pleasures. I ask you to carry crosses, to carry the burdens that I place on you. It is through these burdens you are drawn closer to Me.
Accept your suffering with joy. It is in this joy that you will find the true joy of everlasting happiness.
I love you so. I am your Jesus and I will make more teachings clear to you in your life. Live My Passion with Me and come closer to the Hearts of Me and My mother.
He Asks Us to Fast
June 16, 1994
Messenger: Pleasure and pain. Animals seek pleasure. They want to eat and be satisfied. We are created in the image of God to understand so much more than momentary pleasure.
See their eyes meet. His Heart was lanced, her Heart was pierced. Sorrow between them was so intense, more so than joy between two people. There is unity in that gaze between them, a joining. There is a unity with us when we join our hearts to their Hearts in quiet acceptance of all that they send us, whether it be pain or joy. They ponder the ways of our hearts. They know the true hearts that beat within us.
Jesus speaks: Such sorrow, such joy, joy to be united, sorrow to suffer the pain. It is in sweet surrender you are joined to Our Hearts. You accept all I have given you, you consecrate yourselves to our hearts, a total surrender of yourself to the Hearts of Mary and Jesus.
Messenger: The gaze between them is enough to write volumes. The suffering that exists between them! How tenderly she had looked upon her infant baby and then beheld His lifeless body on her lap after He was taken down from the cross!
Union between the Two Hearts of mother and Son, union between our hearts and Theirs. It is in being detached regarding the things of this world that we are joined with them. Total consecration to Their Hearts, our hearts merging with Theirs in total fusion! It is in this oneness that I can put on Christ and preach the gospel in my very being, to be joined as one with Mary and Jesus!
Study Christ to Become Christ-like
June 16, 1994
Messenger: It is in studying Christ that I learn to be Christ-like. Christ says to study His Passion. It is there He teaches us true love, to lay down our lives for our friends.
To understand His love, I must study how He loved. He loved in silent surrender. He and Our Blessed Lady both suffered such anguish silently and willingly. They did not complain, they did not cry out in pain.
He is here today. He gives Himself to us in Holy Communion. He is totally present. He gives me the cross. I carry it a while, then I want to give it back. Carry it until the end! Suffering leads to union with God. If I search for that which the soul craves in anything worldly, it is a futile search.
God alone knows our hearts so well. No human can fully understand our suffering. God fully knows us from when we were born. No human can give us the compassion, love, and understanding as He, since He knows us so well. He knows us far better than we know ourselves. We turn to Him. He knows we don't have to explain.
As Jesus looked at Mary, they didn't have to say a word. To turn to Jesus in suffering, we don't have to say a word. He knows our hearts far better than we. We look, He knows. No human being can share this with us. This creates union.
Suffer with Joy
June 16, 1994 After Communion 11:50a.m.
Jesus speaks: I ask you to suffer with joy, child. Take the cup of suffering. Accept it. My way is the way of the cross. Suffer with Me as I ask you to suffer. I love you. I never give you more than you can handle. Know that My Will for you is to suffer with joy.
A prophet is without honor in his own town. Stay steadfast in Me and accept what I give you. It comes with greatest love. Have nothing but peace in your heart. The world may hate you one minute and love you the next minute. Remain in Me. I am there. I am consistently in love with you. I am all that you are absolutely sure of. I will never abandon you. I will never give you more than you can handle. Surrender your hearts to Me and to My mother. Give yourself entirely to Me and I will sustain you. I love you so, My precious ones.
Song: Holy God We Praise Thy Name
Oh dear Sacred Heart of Jesus, I give You my whole heart. I see Your Heart on fire for love of me. I want to be in this fiery furnace and know the love of God. Take me, Jesus. Use me as Your little servant to spread Your love to this world. I give myself entirely to You and I ask the Holy Spirit to make me more like You. I want to be a little child of the Father. I give You my heart, keep me in Your Heart and teach me Your way of love. Amen
Oh Immaculate Heart of Mary, I give you my heart. I want to love you. I want to love Jesus, the Father, the Holy Spirit, and this world through your holy heart. My dear mother, I place myself in your heart, I know you will care for me in all my needs. I give myself to you, Mary, my mother. I love you so much! Amen
