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.



               Pray for 4 urgent intentions.

               Pray for a particular bishop and cardinal.

               Pray for the pope.

                Pray for all the bishops of the world.
We desperately need funds.
          Please pray for this.

Excerpt from Mass Book, p. 87

September 23, 1995


The sun always shines after the night. The sun is such a joy - it is so bright and beautiful. If I look to the sky, I see beauty beyond all beauty. I see the sunset with such glory over the vast ocean. I see the sky adorned with the deepest hues. I see the woodland forest covered in such splendor with the new fallen snow. Only the might of the Almighty God could create such beauty. In contrast, I look at the man-made objects of this world. It is so simple. We are so blind. The Almighty God is alive in this world today. Let us unite with Him and realize the great gifts that He gives to us and thank Him and let Him unite in deepest union with us.

Messenger:    Jesus wants us to say this everyday.



John 17: 1-26

The prayer of Jesus

After saying this, Jesus raised his eyes to heaven and said:

   Father, the hour has come:
   glorify your Son
   so that your Son may glorify you;
   so that, just as you have given him
      power over all humanity,
   he may give eternal life
      to all those you have entrusted to him.
   And eternal life is this:
   to know you,
   the only true God,
   and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.
   I have glorified you on earth
   by finishing the work
   that you gave me to do.
   Now, Father, glorify me
   with that glory I had with you
   before ever the world existed.
   I have revealed your name
   to those whom you took from the world
      to give me.
   They were yours
      and you gave them to me,
   and they have kept your word.
   Now at last they have recognised
   that all you have given me
      comes from you
   for I have given them
   the teaching you gave to me,
   and they have indeed accepted it
   and know for certain
      that I came from you,
   and have believed
      that it was you who sent me.
   It is for them that I pray.
   I am not praying for the world
   but for those you have given me,
   because they belong to you.
   All I have is yours
   and all you have is mine,
   and in them I am glorified.
   I am no longer in the world,
   but they are in the world,
   and I am coming to you.
   Holy Father,
   keep those you have given me
      true to your name,
   so that they may be one like us.
   While I was with them,
   I kept those you had given me
      true to your name.
   I have watched over them
      and not one is lost
   except one who was destined to be lost,
   and this was to fulfil the scriptures.
   But now I am coming to you
   and I say these things in the world
   to share my joy with them to the full.
   I passed your word on to them,
   and the world hated them,
   because they belong to the world
   no more than I belong to the world.
   I am not asking you
      to remove them from the world,
   but to protect them from the Evil One.
   They do not belong to the world
   any more than I belong to the world.
   Consecrate them in the truth;
   your word is truth.
   As you sent me into the world,
   I have sent them into the world,
   and for their sake I consecrate myself
   so that they too
      may be consecrated in truth.
   I pray not only for these
   but also for those
   who through their teaching
   will come to believe in me.
   May they all be one,
   just as, Father, you are in me
      and I am in you,
   so that they also may be in us,
   so that the world may believe
   it was you who sent me.
   I have given them the glory
      you gave to me,
   that they may be one as we are one.
   With me in them and you in me,
   may they be so perfected in unity
   that the world will recognise
      that it was you who sent me
   and that you have loved them
   as you have loved me.

   I want those you have given me
   to be with me where I am,
   so that they may always see my glory
   which you have given me
   because you loved me
   before the foundation of the world.
   Father, Upright One,
   the world has not known you,
   but I have known you,
   and these have known
   that you have sent me.
   I have made your name known to them
   and will continue to make it known,
   so that the love with which you loved me
      may be in them,
   and so that I may be in them.

Message from Jesus


Jesus speaks: My Apostles of My Sacred Heart,

I call you to unite, to act as a body, when you decide to step out of line and not serve the body as I have called you, it drastically affects every one else in the body.

If you want this to work where you are crucial in helping to bring about the reign of My Sacred Heart, you must see yourself as a very important player in the great scheme. It is not a little plan. I am giving messages from heaven. All must see their individual roles in this plan. All have a free will. If you do not spend the proper time in prayer, at Mass and before the tabernacle you can get the wrong promptings. "Good ideas" are not always My way or a part of the Father's plan.

You have a free will, how you act in this mission will affect every one else. I call you as a body, to work and to do your part, to pray and very importantly, to stay connected. You cannot operate on your own as an Apostle of the Sacred Heart for this Movement unless you are studying the current messages.

You have a major responsibility as an apostle of My Sacred Heart to stay connected through consecration.

I want a body of people operating together, praying together, being one.

I love you, please serve Me and operate as ONE.

Being one means working together with the same plan.

If all played their own music at the symphony--how would it sound when all played together?

I am the one that delivers the plan of My Father.

You have a leading part in the symphony. How will you lead those that follow you?

The plan is from God.

The law is written in My commandments and My word.

The earth will respond by finding their true home, the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Therein lies the treasures given from God.


John 14: 6

...I am the Way; I am Truth and Life....

Accept Your Crosses (excerpt)

God's Blue Book III Cover

April 7, 1994 3:30a.m.

Surrender your all to Me. When the road is hard and you think, "Oh, Jesus, what do You want from me?," focus on Me, right by your side, instructing you and telling you to quit fighting your crosses. Accept your crosses and grow in your love of Me. I give you little gems in your crosses. No one ever knows what I am teaching you. I teach you exactly as you need. Accept the cross and be taught by the Son of God.
