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 ask that more pray the prayers daily, praying for the Shepherds of Christ Movement and all involved, spreading the Blood of Jesus on yourselves, your families, all in the Movement and all that touches the Movement. Pray to be united as a body, united to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass praying as never before.

Please pray the 6:20 prayers sometime during the day, with a friend if it is possible, pray with all your heart. Even if you cannot pray at 6:20, pray the prayers daily if you can. (Prayers contained in the Shepherds of Christ Prayer Manual and the Holy Spirit Novena booklet.)

I ask you to encourage all to pray the prayers. Get them in your churches. Even if two or three pray after Mass, before Mass, I promise great grace for the people and the parish to turn the parish into a little center of light.

Encourage prayer before the tabernacle, always. It is so powerful to pray after communion and before the tabernacle.

You do not know the power in the prayer united to the Mass.

Pray from the depths of your hearts. I am uniting your hearts deeper and deeper as you pray united to the Mass that you will be one.

It is by My hand that you are reading this message.

It is by the grace I give you that you thirst avidly for a deeper love of God.

I am implanting this desire within your souls, it is My grace acting in you.

Messenger: A letter written on the feast of the Immaculate Heart.

The depth to which I experience oneness and my desire for this deep oneness as God intends with all souls leaves me in a state of enormous hunger always.

My desire to help souls is so deep and so intense, I feel I need to shout and scream, "Please hear what God is saying, please feel as I have felt, please experience as I have experienced." My whole relationship with God, the knowledge of His vision He has given to me is intense and deep. I feel I cannot express what I know and am unable to grasp it here below. I am here with this knowledge to try to deliver the message and get people to know how much we all must pull together and work really hard for the will of God to be done.

We have to pray united deeply as a body. We need to feel. I feel so deep His suffering and His joy.

God is molding our hearts together the more we pray as a body in Him united to the Mass. The devil can try to block this union by trying to keep us separate. The devil uses any means he can to divide. Sometimes words spoken can divide us, and yet our hearts have been united by Him, and there is such pain because He desires us to be one in Him. The devil can use verbal communication to divide us, the devil can create division by differences between men and women and different types of personalities. The devil can use past unhealed hurts that people have experienced in relationships to be as a red flag to divide two people that need to be united for His work, or need to be united to keep the family one and keep the relationships strong relationships.

The vision of the Reign of the Sacred Heart is embedded in my soul with a chisel by the hand of God. I see how He chiseled the 10 commandments in stone, and put the image of Mary on the building. His experiences He has etched on my soul when He acted on me so that I would deliver the message of His fiery love to the hungry souls. My experiences He gave to me are for all, written in the stations of the cross meditations, rosary meditations, and messages, especially those concerning the Mass.

The Blue Books are His love letters to the soul.

I asked Him Oct. 5, 1992, if You would write a book for the world what would You say, use my hand. It was something like that and I received a very lengthy message.

Words can never express the fullness of the love inside which one person has for another. Every Mass I have attended has planted knowledge on my soul. In some Masses He took me to the heaven-like heights in which I knew intense oneness with Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (This has not only been done in the Mass, the experience of Dec. 15, 1995 is an example of an experience in which I felt so intently united to the Divine God in a way that I know more fully this deep union with God for all eternity, all three Persons.)

I have also experienced lack of oneness, separation, in my soul during the Mass that has been an agony I cannot ever account on paper. From one end of the spectrum, ecstatic union with God, the heaven-like joys, to isolation and lack of oneness and the hell-like pain. As I wrote in my letter- every Mass implanted knowledge in me of the intense oneness in Him or lack of it and the reality and pain of hell. From heights of ecstasy to almost terror, knowing the lack of oneness, feeling such division. I have experienced treasures on both ends, knowing the reality of both so clear. The message is embedded in my soul by His own hand. My desire is to reach as many souls as I can so that they will be with Him forever in heaven.

I feel this deep sensitivity within me to be able to communicate to Him. I know more His suffering in the garden. He had perfect knowledge and perfect love, and the intensity of what He experienced there is inexpressible in words. He loves perfectly. He knows perfectly. It was not wounds to His mortal flesh that was His greatest agony, but wounds to His tender Sacred Heart for the lack of oneness and love of His creatures. He had knowledge of complete oneness. He saw the hatred and division and the sins of all men for all time.

God is surely good to us. He gives us Himself, He shares His life, He gives us the Mass, the Eucharist, the Church, the priest, the Sacraments, each other, our lives, our breaths.

I see God is the One who molds our hearts into deep oneness as we dwell in His Heart. We are united more as a body as we partake more fully in every Mass. 

The division is so painful when we love someone so much.

The more we are united in Him through prayer and the Mass and consecration, the more division tears our hearts apart. It is His hand that unites us in prayer and consecration and in the Mass. We are united to the whole body of Christ more and more when we participate in the Mass and unite in Him consciously and consecrate ourselves to Him through Mary's Immaculate Heart in the Holy Spirit.

Here again, what I write of here is beyond words.

The more we dwell in His Heart, the more we unite to the Mass. He unites us, it is by His hand. Satan can create division through verbal communication or other ways, but the deep rooted union of the Body of Christ is beyond our complete understanding. We are united in Him in the Mass and in our baptism and life in the Church. It is by His hand. Our participation in the consecration intensifies the more we participate and He outpours His grace.

If we fail to communicate verbally, this is not the issue. His mission is implanted on our souls by Him in depth through the Masses, the time before the tabernacle, our prayers, living our consecrations.

He gives us revelations to help us know more and more how to participate more fully in our relationship with Him, how to be one. 

He gives us revelations to help us grow in our life of consecration which began at baptism.

Through the purity of Mary's Heart, we can deeply dwell in His Sacred Heart, wherein is found the treasures we seek.

There is a great depth between souls that unite to the Mass and live their consecration. It is the hand of God that unites the hearts, and the words given here are to lead the Church and the world into deeper oneness in Him

It is not in the words alone that we connect, but God is uniting our hearts in Him as we dwell in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. He is the initiator.

In a world that thinks they control everything, we must feel the air on our cheeks and breathe the fresh air into our lungs, watch the sun rise and set. We do not control these things, the hand of God is upon us. We did not paint Mary on the building, and I did not know that on July 5, 1994 Mary would appear daily for 14 months, and that on July 5, 1998, we would have prayer services under the image of Mary daily in Florida.

God put Mary there.

We have to let go and have faith. God knows the very hairs of our heads and watches over us.

Oh God, give us faith and help us to realize You are working in our hearts in our connection to the Mass and in living more deeply our consecration.

The mission has been planted in our hearts by the hand of God.

We must spread the consecration as Mary said at Fatima. We must unite to the Mass.

There will be one flock with one Shepherd.

The shepherd helps lead the strayed ones home.

The home for us is the Heart of Jesus.

John 10: 7-21

So Jesus spoke to them again:

In all truth I tell you,
I am the gate of the sheepfold.
All who have come before me
are thieves and bandits,
but the sheep took no notice of them.
I am the gate.
Anyone who enters through me
   will be safe:
such a one will go in and out
and will find pasture.
The thief comes
only to steal and kill and destroy.
I have come
so that they may have life
and have it to the full.
I am the good shepherd:
the good shepherd lays down his life
    for his sheep.
The hired man,
    since he is not the shepherd
and the sheep do not belong to him,
abandons the sheep
as soon as he sees a wolf coming,
    and runs away, 
and then the wolf attacks
    and scatters the sheep;
he runs away
    because he is only a hired man
and has no concern for the sheep.
I am the good shepherd;
I know my own
and my own know me,
just as the Father knows me
and I know the Father;
and I lay down my life for my sheep.
And there are other sheep I have
 that are not of this fold,
 and I must lead these too. 
They too will listen to my voice,
 and there will be only one flock, 
one shepherd.
The Father loves me, 
because I lay down my life
 in order to take it up again.
No one takes it from me; 
I lay it down of my own free will, 
and as I have power to lay it down, 
so I have power to take it up again; 
and this is the command 
   I have received from my Father.

These words caused a fresh division among the Jews. Many said, ‘He is possessed, he is raving; why do you listen to him?’ Others said, ‘These are not the words of a man possessed by a devil: could a devil open the eyes of the blind?’

John 17: 10-26

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.

Jesus speaks: I am the Good Shepherd.

This is My Movement to lead My flock home to My Heart.

Ezekiel 34: 11-16

    “For the Lord Yahweh says this: Look, I myself shall take care of my flock and look after it. As a shepherd looks after his flock when he is with his scattered sheep, so shall I look after my sheep. I shall rescue them from wherever they have been scattered on the day of clouds and darkness. I shall bring them back from the peoples where they are; I shall gather them back from the countries and bring them back to their own land. I shall pasture them on the mountains of Israel, in the ravines and in all the inhabited parts of the country. I shall feed them in good pasturage; the highest mountains of Israel will be their grazing ground. There they will rest in good grazing grounds; they will browse in rich pastures on the mountains of Israel. I myself shall pasture my sheep, I myself shall give them rest–declares the Lord Yahweh. I shall look for the lost one, bring back the stray, bandage the injured and make the sick strong. I shall watch over the fat and healthy. I shall be a true shepherd to them.

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)


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.
