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: I call you to talk to the sisters about Jesus.
Messenger: Jesus called me on September 7, 1995, to talk to the sisters about Jesus and to spread His words. His message was to reach them, telling me I must do so.
He appeared to the side of the altar, the same side as in Lucia's vision. He was adorned in a lot of gold and I saw a lot of gold.
Today Jesus sent me to the funeral of one of His precious sisters.
He told me how much He loves them and again we should try to reach them. The original messages of 1994 and 1995 were given to reach the sisters with the Blue Books.
Regarding the second Blue Book in particular, in 1994 and 1995, He gave me several messages to circulate these to priests and sisters.
We are still struggling to translate this in Spanish. The translation must maintain all that is true. It is not a little task to put Jesus' words in another language. It must be absolutely accurate. Jesus gives it to me so I can write it in English.
I do not wish to deviate from the original message given from Jesus today and from the past previous days.
Jesus speaks: My daughter, I do indeed love My sisters so, they are My special spouse. They, too, long to know more the mystery of My love. Deep in their hearts they want the greatest union with Me. I want them to have the letters of My love given especially in Blue Book II, but five years later they are not as open to the private revelation as they were five years ago.
I desire very much that the sisters receive the Mass Book with the Imprimatur. I wish people to help you through their prayers and support to reach the sisters.
I wish My center in Sidney to be a sub-center. One of its purposes is to reach the sisters through mailings, etc.
My center in Sidney is important to Me. This Tuesday, July 18, 2000, I will give special graces of healing for all who come.
I wish the sisters' mailing to be sent out to all sisters as possible. I requested the newsletter on the Mass and the Blessed Virgin with the audio tapes of these recorded by your founder be sent.
My sisters are very dear to Me, they can help to lead souls to My Sacred Heart.
I want My sisters to be consecrated to My Heart and the Heart of My Mother.
I want them to help reach the priests with the newsletter.
I want prayer chapters of sisters praying as I have instructed.
Jesus speaks: Sisters are given special graces as My special spouse. There is a special gift given to the world when sisters pray the prayers I have given, especially when prayed before the Blessed Sacrament.
I love My sisters so much. They may not marry a man, but they have many children in My Church to help lead to God through prayer.
I want sisters to lead little ones to the rosary and to love the Mass.
I want them to help older people to offer their lives up as a prayer in the Morning Offering in union with the Mass.
If the intention is there every morning of offering their sufferings and simple activities up to the Father in My name through the powerful intercession of Mary with all the angels and saints for the priests, the Church and the world, that is all that is needed.
My dear Father, I offer you this day all my prayers, works, joys, and sufferings in union with Jesus in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass throughout the world, in the Holy Spirit.
I unite with our Mother Mary, all the angels and saints, and all the souls in purgatory to pray to the Father for myself, for each member of my family, for my friends, for all people throughout the world, for all the souls in purgatory, and for all other intentions of the Sacred Heart.
I love You, Jesus, and I give You my heart. I love you, Mary, and I give you my heart.
Jesus speaks: I want sisters to help Me spread the consecration by spreading the card
"I give my heart to Jesus and Mary with you in love."
I love My sisters so much. You must reach them with My requests.
I want them to help in My Movement.
They should pray, and help reach other sisters and priests with the priestly newsletter.
I want the Holy Spirit Novena book to be given to sisters and used by their students who are to receive the sacrament of Confirmation.
There are 18 different Scripture readings.
Sisters can use these materials in schools.
The sisters, especially those in schools, should be given the Parents and Children's Rosary Book and Rosary Aves.
Please, My sisters, help Me. I want you to help My children know how much I love them.
I want a deep union with you as My bride.
I want you to teach others how to be My special bride and tell the world about My Church - the good news.
I am truly present in the Eucharist - tell them.
Tell them about the Mass.
Please get my Mass Book with the Imprimatur all over the world, especially to sisters and priests.
Excerpt from the Mass Book
September 7, 1995
DO NOT HOLD BACK,
Written before the exposed Eucharist in the
convent chapel at the college of Mt. St. Joseph:
Ask and you shall receive, seek and you shall find.
Jesus wants us to speak. He does not want us to hold back. We will touch the cold hearts with the messages of His love. We can not hold back, souls are at stake. I can envision Jesus standing to the left of the altar, His halo around His head. There's a lot of gold. His arms are outstretched.
Through Him, with Him, and in Him, in the unity of the Holy Spirit.
I want to carry the rosaries out to this world.
I am your servant, Lord. It is no longer I who live, but He Who lives in Me. Give to me abundant graces to live only for Thee, to be only as You want me to be, to surrender my all for Thee so I can truly say, "In fact, through the Law I am dead to the Law so that I can be alive to God. I have been crucified with Christ and yet I am alive; yet it is no longer I, but Christ living in me…" (Ga. 2:19-20)
We are His apostles that He is sending into the world. He wants us to speak of His burning love. He is truly present in the Blessed Sacrament. We should cherish the precious gift of Jesus in the Eucharist. He wants us to go out and spread the devotions to His most Sacred Heart and His Mother's heart. I love the Eucharist, reminiscing on all the special moments I have had with my Lover, my Beloved, moments in front of the tabernacle, drawing closer and closer to Him.
I live my life to attend Mass. I envision a halo around the consecrated Host.
I feel the intense glow of His love that is so warm and gives me such joy.
Through Him, with Him and in Him.
I am laid waste in His precious love.
Like glowing embers, on and off - I love the Eucharist with my deepest love!
Let me put my head on Your chest. My heart is burning for love of You. My heart is burning now from the Holy Eucharist one hour ago.
I come and sit with Him in front of the tabernacle and tell Him all my problems.
I love Him so much!
(End of Excerpt from the Mass Book)
Jesus speaks: I wish the writing of February 23, 1998, when I gave the Prayer for Intimacy with the Lamb, to appear here.
Excerpt from The Spouse of the Lamb
Ash Wednesday, February 25, 1998 - 1st Day
Jesus speaks: Do you think I acted on your soul less when I gave you the experiences of hell?
I give to you the greatest graces to know My love. I act directly on your soul. I am the Bridegroom of your soul.
Messenger: Oh Jesus, He took me to the heights of ecstasy in Him in realizing how He is the Initiator and acts on my soul. How foolish I am indeed to think it is I who control the workings of God on my soul, when in fact He is the Bridegroom of my soul.
I see Him look at me with the greatest love, as I did once in the study, when I knew He looked at me and loved me so. I sat with a white dress and my Bridegroom looked with love on me, thinking me so beautiful to Him, me the little child of the Father in all my faults, and looking on me with such love. He stood above me as a Bridegroom dressed in black, tall and handsome, and He looked down with the most loving eyes upon me and I knew the love of the Divine Creator.
Today I knew how it was, how He acted on my soul.
I see how it is when someone really acts in love and does something for me because that person loves me.
I see myself as open, letting go, putting myself entirely in the hands of the Creator, the God I love, and the Bridegroom comes with the greatest love and His grace. He gives me Himself. My job is to be, just to be, a soul, waiting for the Bridegroom to just give me Himself in the greatest love. I am, I know it is He who acts, and when He acts His presence overtakes my soul. I am, I let go and I reminisce about all the times He just overtook my soul.
Little do I do, for it is the Bridegroom loving me, loving my soul and acting most intimately on my soul.
I sit and surrender myself entirely to Him. He is the Initiator. He is the One Who acts with His grace and NOTHING - no intimate experience, nothing here can fill the soul with this love and satisfaction.
For the Bridegroom acts and the soul is satisfied, the only desire is that it will never end. Sometimes there is such a longing and realizing the temporariness of it all. Sometimes He gives my soul such satisfaction, comfort and love, and I am filled with the greatest peace and satisfaction with less awareness of the temporariness, just peace.
Jesus speaks: I give you the peace of the Sacred Heart of Jesus when He acts on the soul of His spouse. I am the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world. I am the Spouse of your soul. I give you this satisfaction so that you will write to Me after Communion for My Mass Books for the world. This book will be entitled the Spouse of the Lamb. I will act on your soul most intimately.
And what My child is the key, but total surrender as a spouse who knows her spouse loves her and takes the love given. You, child, pray for this grace, to be possessed by the Lamb, the Bridegroom of your soul. What lesson did I teach you this day but that it is I who act upon you, you do not control My love given to you in any way. A grace is given, a grace is received.
Your total surrender is the way to most optimally allow the Bridegroom, the Lamb, to act on your soul.
Total yielding, so that you will allow yourself to be IN ME.
Messenger: Oh my God - how to explain that which happens when You act on my soul and what I experience. Are there any words that could do this justice when the Almighty God finds favor with me most intimately, and gives Himself to me?
Jesus speaks: My child, I act, you are passive, empty and open. Surrender and I will possess your soul with the lights of heaven so you can experience your Divine Lover most intimately. Surrender, surrender, surrender, a state of being and surrender to live in Him at the point of greatest intimacy in the Mass.
You will know days of darkness and joy as the shadows and lights fade in and out of your life and I reveal Myself most intimately to you.
I am Jesus Christ, the Bridegroom of your soul. Your hand must record these experiences for the marriage of the Lamb to the soul.
I act upon your soul most intimately.
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: My beloved Jesus,
The Bridegroom of my soul. It is not I who write, but in fact, You Who write through me, to Yourself. I surrender myself and want to exist in You in such oneness that I can more optimally love You.
This is my desire to give You great love from my heart existent in You.
And this I write for 10 minutes that You will help me to love God most intimately and give myself more completely to Him.
My God, I adore You, I worship You, I love You, my beloved Spouse, the Bridegroom of my soul. I know the black Bridegroom, the one dressed as a bridegroom who wears a white robe of glory. Yes, it is the priests dressed in black that are to teach us to be the spouse of the Lamb.
…and made us a Kingdom of Priests to serve his God and Father; to him, then, be glory and power for ever and ever. Amen.
Messenger: And the Bridegroom comes, He summons the soul.
Oh, my Bridegroom, we pray for the wedding of the Lamb to our souls.
We pray for the spousal relationship of our souls with Our Divine God.
Jesus speaks: I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. The life flows from My Sacred Heart to My body, the Church. Many never mention the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
What body would survive cut off from the heart? My life flows from My Heart into the body, My Church.
I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus and My Heart will reign - I am calling My people to a personal spousal relationship with God. This is the work of the Shepherds of Christ. I bless you in this mission to bring about the Reign of My Sacred Heart.
I am Jesus, the Son of God, Son of Man, the Sacred Heart, I am the beating Heart that keeps the body alive with My grace.
Messenger: Blood and water poured forth from His most Sacred Heart. Blood a symbol of the Eucharist, water a symbol of Baptism.
He cursed the barren fig tree.
…and the stars of the sky fell onto the earth like figs dropping from a fig tree when a high wind shakes it;
…because the Lamb who is at the heart of the throne will be their shepherd and will guide them to springs of living water; and God will wipe away all tears from their eyes.
and made them
a line of kings and priests for God,
to rule the world.
(End of Excerpt from The Spouse of the Lamb)
Jesus speaks: I want My sisters to be in a deep spousal union with Me. I love them so much.
Come back to Me, My beloved spouse, come deeply into My Heart. Focus on our love union, come before the Blessed Sacrament. I long, I long to be united to you.
Praying the prayers in My Shepherds of Christ prayer manual will help you to grow in this deeper love union.
Messenger: This is the promise given to our founder from Jesus for those reciting the prayers.
"I am calling many to become members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. To all of them I will give great blessings. I will use them as instruments to help bring about the triumph of the Immaculate Heart and the reign of My Sacred Heart. I will give great graces to the members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. I will call them to be deeply united to My Heart and to Mary's Heart as I lead them ever closer to My Father in the Holy Spirit."
- Message from Jesus to founder, as given on July 31, 1994,
feast of Saint Ignatius Loyola, Founder of the Society of Jesus (The Jesuits).
Jesus speaks: I wish the sisters and priests to get the book - The Mass - A Journey into the Heart of Christ.
Jesus speaks: Please help Me, I want holy, loving, sisters and priests. I want My religious to identify with Me in all they do.
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
Jesus speaks: 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.

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.

A Letter from the Head of the Handmaids in Florida
July 14, 2000
I give my heart to Jesus and Mary with you in love!
It's funny, today we went to Luby's for dinner with Father ______ and he was talking all about the sisters in India. There's so many sisters there! Then the message was all about sisters! I wish we could reach India more, maybe one day we'll go there and spread the prayers! I wish someone fervent would bring all the material there and to Africa--what prayer power we could get there! Father _____ is going to give us some addresses of convents and parishes. I felt such an ache in my heart that we weren't able to reach the sisters 5 years ago. The other day we had a sister that came to the site and she was so wonderful! She was so open to all the literature! Oh, I wish we could reach more souls! I wish we could do more. We'll have to beg for grace and funds and fervent souls!
I love you! I wanted to tell you, on the 13th in 1917 Mary showed the children hell and on the 13th here in July we began to pray at 12:00 and after awhile, about 12:45 it began to rain and we were going to use umbrellas. Well, it just poured down so we trudged inside and as I was walking through the large immense number of drops, all I could think of was how Mary keeps crying out how souls are going into hell like rain. We just don't fully know the depth of the messages, the urgency of it all. I feel like I'm not doing enough, but every moment, every second united as a body to the Mass is such an immense power! God's going to do it. We rely on His grace. We can't do anything without Him. We'll just keep enduring.
God grants such grace for that one soul that just comes and just gives Him all their love!
Oh I love the messages so much! Look at how much we know and all that's in our hearts--these gifts He's given us! Doesn't it just warm your heart!?
I love you.
(Please copy and pass out to family and friends.)
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)
MY VALENTINE FOR JESUS AND MARY
AND THE WORLD
I _________________ give my heart to
You Jesus and Mary on this day
I promise to help spread the devotion to
the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.
Q: How do you feel when we are united deeply in our hearts, but not together?
