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.

Jesus speaks: All need to forgive each other and say they are sorry.

Don't be "uppity" and prideful.

Ask God for healing for the whole world.

Pray at 6:20 for healing for yourselves, your family, the priests, the Church and the world.

1 Corinthians 13: 1-13

Though I command languages both human and angelic—if I speak without love, I am no more than a gong booming or a cymbal clashing. And though I have the power of prophecy, to penetrate all mysteries and knowledge, and though I have all the faith necessary to move mountains—if I am without love, I am nothing. Though I should give away to the poor all that I possess, and even give up my body to be burned—if I am without love, it will do me no good whatever.

Love is always patient and kind; love is never jealous; love is not boastful or conceited, it is never rude and never seeks its own advantage, it does not take offence or store up grievances. Love does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but finds its joy in the truth. It is always ready to make allowances, to trust, to hope and to endure whatever comes.

Love never comes to an end. But if there are prophecies, they will be done away with; if tongues, they will fall silent; and if knowledge, it will be done away with. For we know only imperfectly, and we prophesy imperfectly; but once perfection comes, all imperfect things will be done away with. When I was a child, I used to talk like a child, and see things as a child does, and think like a child; but now that I have become an adult, I have finished with all childish ways. Now we see only reflections in a mirror, mere riddles, but then we shall be seeing face to face. Now I can know only imperfectly; but then I shall know just as fully as I am myself known.

As it is, these remain: faith, hope and love, the three of them; and the greatest of them is love.

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we for give those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. Amen.


A Prayer to be united more firmly to the Heavenly Family

Dear God the Father and Our Blessed Mother Mary, 

I recognize you as the Father and Mother of me and my family. I ask you to father and mother me and my family. I am completely dependent on you.

I love you so much. Holy Spirit descend on me and my family. My beloved brother Jesus, help me to be more like you and live as a son of God.

Prayer for Parents (pray daily)

O heavenly Father and Blessed Virgin Mary, help us to teach our children the right way you desire us to live, always living according to the Father's will. 

Help us be united as one and to teach them (our children) your ways and to act always in the name of Jesus in the Holy Spirit.

Help us to have unity in our family and live in God.

We give our family to you. We want to act as you desire us to, please help us.

We consecrate our hearts and the hearts of all our children and their children to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

We ask that ourselves and our family be spread with the Blood of Jesus.

We cast out Satan far from our family.

We beg for the coming of the Holy Spirit.

John 16: 20-24

‘In all truth I tell you,
you will be weeping and wailing
while the world will rejoice;
you will be sorrowful,
but your sorrow will turn to joy.
A woman in childbirth suffers,
because her time has come;
but when she has given birth to the child
she forgets the suffering
in her joy that a human being
has been born into the world.
So it is with you: you are sad now,
but I shall see you again,
and your hearts will be full of joy,
and that joy no one shall take from you.
When that day comes,
you will not ask me any questions.
In all truth I tell you,
anything you ask from the Father
he will grant in my name.
Until now you have not asked
anything in my name.
Ask and you will receive,
and so your joy will be complete.

Matthew 12: 46-50

The true kinsfolk of Jesus

He was still speaking to the crowds when suddenly his mother and his brothers were standing outside and were anxious to have a word with him. But to the man who told him this Jesus replied, ‘Who is my mother? Who are my brothers?’ And stretching out his hand towards his disciples he said, ‘Here are my mother and my brothers. Anyone who does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother.’

Messenger: I have a big picture family album and in the front a family tree.

If we envision a fruit tree that bears fruit yearly, we see every year the leaves die off and new fruit is produced every year.

The new fruit every year depends on the health of the tree. A tree that is healthy should produce good fruit.

The new fruit each year does depend on the tree and its health from years past.

Can we not see how we produce fruit for the kingdom of heaven is influenced by how the generations past were in bearing fruit.

Luke 13: 6-9

Parable of the barren fig tree

He told this parable, ‘A man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard, and he came looking for fruit on it but found none. He said to his vinedresser, “For three years now I have been coming to look for fruit on this fig tree and finding none. Cut it down: why should it be taking up the ground?” “Sir,” the man replied, “leave it one more year and give me time to dig round it and manure it: it may bear fruit next year; if not, then you can cut it down.” ’

Messenger: God wants fruit for the kingdom from His tree.

Jesus says:

John 15: 5

I am the vine,
you are the branches.

Messenger: From the family tree of Jesus God wants fruit for heaven.

July 10, 2000 - Second Message

Messenger: We have all been victims of the past. It is easy to see how a child living in an alcoholic home or abusive home has been victimized growing up.

None of our responses and actions are simple responses and actions. They come from a very complex human person that has been taught many learned ways of behavior.

Children learn to respond and react by what is going on around them. The ones who ares teaching them through their actions have a major role in how the children act and respond all through life.

Many times we do not even know the ways we act are hurting others.

From the very beginning of life we take in information that teaches us to relate with others.

It is not surprising that a child that grows up in an addictive home sometimes turns out to be addicted.

It is not surprising that people who abuse others in intimate relationships lived in homes where one person disrespected the other. A close study of the generations past would reveal possibly the same behavior in the family before them - and before them.

We do not know how unloving we are sometimes, we just act many times as we were taught. Parents teach their children how to parent by how they parent their children. And so it goes on and on. Many times the imperfect ways of parenting are passed down generation after generation.

Fathers may be very dominant and disrespectful towards wife and children, or wives may be disrespectful of the rights of husband and children, being controlling and over powering.

There is that struggle for power many times. The man is the power in the marriage (or it could be the female). The other may force the other partner to be very passive and give the children the freedom to reign.

The right way is as God has given. Father and mother living in love are given the child from God. They should operate as one raising the child.

In dysfunctional families and in families involving divorce, the child can try to do what he wants by playing games between the parents, working on their weaknesses.

Whenever physical force is used in a marriage to establish rules, the rules can be very dysfunctional rules. Another person should never resort to physical force to manipulate the married partner.

Every human person is a gift created by God. Even the person that is acting adversely deserves respect and love. Love may be very tough at times. In an alcoholic home, love, true love is tough. The condition may become so severe that one must get extra help to confront the evil that is destroying the family. This is tough. Some children are severely wounded in some alcoholic families.

Jesus speaks: I come to give this message. Tomorrow, Tuesday is healing day. It is not right for persons to believe they are perfect and others around them are always at fault. Every person has been taught ways of acting that may hurt others, even though they do not intentionally mean to.

In one family a man may have learned to disrespect and look down on women.

In another family, the man may have learned to hold the door, open a car door, pull out a chair, be a very loving, understanding man.

One man may have learned to think ONLY of HIMSELF. He walks through the door, and when the other comes behind he doesn't even think of the door that just hit the one who followed in the face. Another man may run ahead to get the door before others get there. Such respect and love, you say. Yes, it may be great respect, but the one who sees only himself and is thoughtlesss of others may have had to hide most of his life because his two parents were alcoholics and very disrespectful to each other and their children when they were drinking or drying out from the drinking.

A child is a victim of the home like this.

One woman sees herself as a victim. She is always looking out for who wronged her. She may acquire a need to feel victimized.

Another woman may always look for the good in others, and sometimes end up a victim because she has misjudged others.

Whatever the case is, you are not perfect, you have all offended Me and offended others. Some will never tell others they are sorry when they wronged them because they are too busy telling themselves they never did anything wrong.

Some people cause problems when things are going good because they are always looking for problems, even when times are good. This is a very bad habit. This is not to say that you should not face and deal with real problems.

Many of your imperfect ways are hidden and learned in the past. You cannot unveil them all, but you continue hurting others.

On Tuesday, healing day, especially at 6:20, I beg you to pray for healing for yourselves, your families, your priests, your Church and your world.

Do not hide your faults, pray to the Holy Spirit for healing in your families. You need healing in your families. You need to admit you are imperfect. Many times you do not even see your unloving ways.

Every person must recognize they have imperfections and come through Our holy Hearts. You are tainted. I am God, I am Perfect. Mary has an Immaculate Heart.



YOUR CHILDREN are being taught to disrespect authority, many thinking they are on the top - many do not respect Me, their God having authority over them. Many men and women think they are on the top. They do not accept Me as having authority over them.

1 Corinthians 15: 20-28

    In fact, however, Christ has been raised from the dead, as the first–fruits of all who have fallen asleep. As it was by one man that death came, so through one man has come the resurrection of the dead. Just as all die in Adam, so in Christ all will be brought to life; but all of them in their proper order: Christ the first–fruits, and next, at his coming, those who belong to him. After that will come the end, when he will hand over the kingdom to God the Father, having abolished every principality, every ruling force and power. For he is to be king until he has made his enemies his footstool, and the last of the enemies to be done away with is death, for he has put all things under his feet. But when it is said everything is subjected, this obviously cannot include the One who subjected everything to him. When everything has been subjected to him, then the Son himself will be subjected to the One who has subjected everything to him, so that God may be all in all.

Jesus speaks: Many lie and deceive to be on top.

You must obey the commandments.

My word is not obsolete.

Satan has attacked the commandments and My word.

Many think they can make their own rules.

That is what Eve did. She wanted her will, her way.

Genesis 3: 13-24

Then Yahweh God said to the woman, ‘Why did you do that?’ The woman replied, ‘The snake tempted me and I ate.’

Then Yahweh God said to the snake, ‘Because you have done this,

Accursed be you
of all animals wild and tame!
On your belly you will go
and on dust you will feed
as long as you live.
I shall put enmity
between you and the woman,
and between your offspring and hers;
it will bruise your head
and you will strike its heel.’

To the woman he said:

I shall give you intense pain
in childbearing,
you will give birth to your children
in pain.
Your yearning will be for your husband,
and he will dominate you.

To the man he said, ‘Because you listened to the voice of your wife and ate from the tree of which I had forbidden you to eat,

Accursed be the soil because of you!
Painfully will you get your food from it
as long as you live.
It will yield you brambles and thistles,
as you eat the produce of the land.
By the sweat of your face
will you earn your food,
until you return to the ground,
as you were taken from it.
For dust you are
and to dust you shall return.’

The man named his wife ‘Eve’ because she was the mother of all those who live. Yahweh God made tunics of skins for the man and his wife and clothed them. Then Yahweh God said, ‘Now that the man has become like one of us in knowing good from evil, he must not be allowed to reach out his hand and pick from the tree of life too, and eat and live for ever!’ So Yahweh God expelled him from the garden of Eden, to till the soil from which he had been taken. He banished the man, and in front of the garden of Eden he posted the great winged creatures and the fiery flashing sword, to guard the way to the tree of life.

Jesus speaks: Lies and deception are wrong.

Revelation 21: 27

Nothing unclean may come into it: no one who does what is loathsome or false, but only those who are listed in the Lamb’s book of life.

Jesus speaks: I am the Lord your God, I love you and I am Perfect.

I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End.

My earth, Satan is deceiving you and tricking you with his lies. Some men act in ways that trick others.

You must pray for healing. Pray to the Holy Spirit. Give yourselves to God. Throw yourselves on His mercy. Do not be "uppity". All men need to be healed. All have imperfections, some taught to them from others. It is silly, silly to see yourself as perfect. You must work together in love. You must pray for healing for those who will not even seem to budge, who see themselves as perfect.

It is a "mess", the web that has been woven by the sins. Only My grace will help the barren earth. My adults do you see the youth?

Don't you think it is time to pray? The adverse ways will not go away. The ancient serpent is stalking the young.

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)
