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.
Help me to reach the world that they know to pray. My dear Jesus, I attended Mass in Rhode Island today and asked the priest if he got the priestly newsletter. He said he didnt. I told him we prayed for priests and he really wanted our prayers.
My Jesus, I have missed You so because I could not spend the quiet moments with You I desired, but I have been very close to You in my heart. I feel the oneness with everyone as we pray hourly and unite in our Morning Offering, all day in union with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. I feel closer than ever to all my brothers and sisters in prayer. I feel closer to the Church and the world praying for the Church and the world to be as the Father desires.
Jesus speaks: My child, the Ten Commandments and My word are your truth. The devil will attack these pillars of truth and the Catholic Faith. He will confuse, distort and attempt to destroy worthy worship of God by the faithful. His attack is strong and he is quickly making strides. Men have made money, power, acceptance by fellows a god.
Messenger: God is all-powerful, the I Am, immutable and true. The truth is the same -- in the past, now and always. The truth is in Him. There is but one truth.
I am the Way; I am Truth and Life... (Jn 14:6)
Messenger: People who engage in distorting the truth through television and movies to their children will be held accountable for the damage they have done. You must help make reparation to your God for all the sins being committed against God. I REPEAT - there is but one truth.
I am the Way; I am Truth and Life... (Jn 14:6)
Jesus speaks: My child, I love you, hold tight to My word. I am Jesus, the Son of God.
Messenger: I went to Mass here and I want to be so united to the Body of Christ in all the Masses celebrated around the world.
Messenger: I see myself as Lucia, as in Lucias vision. I plead and beg for grace in all those Masses being celebrated all over the world, even though I am not there. I am deeply united as a member in the Body of Christ and I have given myself to His most Sacred Heart and Marys Heart so I am one in Him in the Masses celebrated all over the world. I know I am helping in the work of redemption. From deep union with Him in the Eucharist and consecration, I know the truth is in me and I pray every day that I live and dwell in a deeper union with Him. Jesus loves the souls. He gave His life for them. The more I become one in Him, the more His desires become one in me. I want to help souls. The Incarnation goes on in me.
I am a mother, I carried my children and knew the life alive in me. I felt it move. But nothing was like that moment when I saw the baby with flesh and little fingers and toes. The time of pregnancy was like a mystery unfolding to me. I did not have ultrasound, I just felt the baby move and knew it was growing within me. I tried to eat to feed the baby well, even though I didnt see it.
God is the ultimate mystery. We are growing more and more in that image and likeness of Him in the spiritual womb of our Mother. We live by faith. When we see Him face to face, all will be brought to light. Our souls will experience great joy if we lived to love and serve Him. God indeed is the ultimate mystery. We are becoming more likened to Him as we give ourselves in consecration to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary and live according to Gods will. We must pray for our Church and our world as Jesus, the Chief Shepherd has told us. All are in the state of becoming. The devil wants souls for hell. We are at battle.
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.
Prayer to St. Michael
"St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, O prince of the heavenly hosts, by the power of God, cast into hell Satan and all the other evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen."
Chaplet of St. Michael
Saint Michael appearing one day to Antonia d'Astonac, a most devout Servant of God, told her that he wished to be honored by nine salutations corresponding to the nine Choirs of Angels, which should consist of one Our Father and three Hail Marys in honor of each of the angelic choirs.
Promises of St. Michael
Whosoever would practice this devotion in his honor would have, when approaching the Holy Table, an escort of nine angels chosen from each one of the nine choirs. In addition, for the daily recital of these nine salutations, he promised his continual assistance and that of all the holy angels during life, and after death deliverance from purgatory for themselves and their relations.
Method of Reciting the Chaplet
The chaplet is begun by saying the following invocation on the medal: O God, come to my assistance. O Lord, make haste to help me. Glory be to the Father, etc.
Say one Our Father and three Hail Marys after each of the following nine salutations in honor of the nine choirs of angels.
1. By the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Seraphim, may the Lord make us worthy to burn with the fire of perfect charity. Amen.
2. By the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Cherubim, may the Lord vouchsafe to grant us grace to leave the ways of wickedness to run in the paths of Christian perfection. Amen.
3. By the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Thrones, may the Lord infuse into our hearts a true and sincere spirit of humility. Amen.
4. By the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Dominions, may the Lord give us grace to govern our senses and subdue our unruly passions. Amen.
5. By the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Powers, may the Lord vouchsafe to protect our souls against the snares and temptations of the devil. Amen.
6. By the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Virtues may the Lord preserve us from evil and suffer us not to fall into temptation. Amen.
7. By the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Principalities, may God fill our souls with a true spirit of obedience. Amen.
8. By the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Archangels, may the Lord give us perseverance in faith and in all good works, in order that we gain the glory of Paradise. Amen.
9. By the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Angels, may the Lord grant us to be protected by them in this mortal life and conducted hereafter to eternal glory. Amen.
Say one Our Father in honor of each of the following leading angels: 10 St Michael; 11 St Gabriel; 12 St. Raphael; 13 our Guardian Angel.
The chaplet is concluded with the following prayers:
O glorious Prince St. Michael, chief and commander of the heavenly hosts, guardian of souls, vanquisher of rebel spirits, servant in the house of the Divine King, and our admirable conductor, thou who dost shine with excellence and superhuman virtue, vouchsafe to deliver us from all evil, who turn to thee with confidence, and enable us by thy gracious protection to serve God more and more faithfully every day.
V. Pray for us, O glorious St. Michael, Prince of the Church of Jesus Christ.
R. That we may be made worthy of His promises.
Almighty and Everlasting God, who by a prodigy of goodness and a merciful desire for the salvation of all men, hast appointed the most glorious Archangel, St. Michael, Prince of Thy Church, make us worthy, we beseech Thee, to be delivered from all our enemies that none of them may harass us at the hour of death, but that we may be conducted by him into the august presence of Thy Divine Majesty. This we beg through the merits of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Messenger: The battle is a real battle. It is real that Satan encamps around the souls. His traps are hurting millions & millions of souls. It is only Gods grace that will help us. Our battle is with the forces of evil. We need to call upon the heavenly choirs of angels and pray with all the angels and saints and souls in purgatory, pleading to the Father in our every waking moment, united to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, for our priests, the Church and the world. We must strive for the highest heights of holiness, trying not to commit sin and wanting absolute purity. If we fall, we say we are sorry. We live for souls, live to be more deeply united to Him, live for the intentions of his Sacred Heart.
We should go to confession regularly, examine our consciences frequently, and never lose the sensitivity of loving each soul as a precious soul created by God.
Jesus speaks: My children, do not criticize others and make yourselves superior. If your holiness exceeds others, it is only because of My grace. You must pray for grace for them and that the world is the way your Father wishes it to be. Pray at every moment united to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Do not ever underestimate the power of My Saving Blood. The Blood of Jesus will wipe out the devil. You must ask the Blood of Jesus be spread on yourselves, your families, the priests, the Church and the world. You must be humble and open. The world must be consecrated to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.
MARY'S PEACE PLAN
Jesus speaks: Mary appears in Florida, this is a permanent image We give to you. Mary calls her children to consecration.
Mary speaks: My Son is the Savior of the World. July 5, 1999, is an important day to heaven. Unite with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
I love you, Mary.
Q: How can we help to create relationships in our lives and in the Church like the Father wishes?
