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.

Messenger: Our Lord wanted me to write about this.

Yesterday was the funeral of our dear Emily's grandfather. The family is very close to each other and close to God. Emily's grandfather loved God  and that love goes on in his family. Emily's mom and dad and brother are also members of Shepherds of Christ, as is also Emily's uncle. All are touching the world through their love of Jesus and their prayers. We thank God for Emily's grandfather and the gift God gave to us. Now God has called him home. It was unexpected, for he had a heart attack, we never know when death will knock at the door. He began having chest pains at noon and he died at 3:00 pm. 

The funeral Mass was so beautiful and I felt so connected to God. This is what life is all about.

Emily wrote a letter to her grandfather March 14, 2000, included is that letter. This is the only letter she had ever written to him. On the day before he died of a heart attack, she received the only letter he wrote to her. 

Here are the letters.

I Was Born an Innocent Baby

God's Blue Book III Cover

May 5, 1994 

Messenger: The beginning is God-made-man, born of a virgin. He is held so lovingly in her arms. He is so perfect. She is filled with such love for Her beloved Son! The end of His life was her holding Him on her lap, His lifeless body in her arms after the world had done it's awful job on our beautiful Jesus, God-made-man!

Does this signify what this world is capable of, to take an innocent body and slaughter the baby in whatever way the world sees fit? Is this what this world is capable of? Does this world do this to our children? We are given this beautiful creation from God and look what the world does to God's creation!

But He rose to new life. He, God-made-man, was victorious. He rose and gave us new life. We, too, will rise to new life, despite the hatred of this world. Christ is victorious. The victory has been won. Death has no power over Him. Sin has no power over God. We will rise again. We will stand in glory if we stay fixed in Him. He is the victor. We are His chosen ones. It is in our commitment to follow Christ and His ways that we will be victorious. We will live forever! Alleluia. Alleluia.

Jesus speaks: In all your struggles, keep your eyes on Me, My chosen ones. Live in My love. Stay rooted in Me. You will never die. Though heaven and earth pass away, not one letter of the law will pass away. I come that you might have life and have it more abundantly, not as this world gives you life, but as I give you life. Die to the world and live in Me. I am your Savior. I come that you will live.

Messenger: Alleluia, Alleluia. And He gave them manna from heaven and they knew His might and His light shone on each of them and they were His descendants. They were His heirs to the kingdom. Alleluia. Jesus is Lord. Alleluia.

Children Need Time and Attention

God's Blue Book I Cover

December 8, 1993 - 5:30a.m. 

Jesus speaks: The love you show today lives on in the hearts of your children.


(End of excerpt)

Messenger: When Sheila, Emily's mom, talked to her dad, he told Sheila he really liked the Blue Book and he would read it everyday. Then he told Sheila he prayed for Emily everyday. Sheila said as he said this, there was a tear coming from his eye.

After the funeral, I was asked to sign the Blue Book  Emily sent to her grandfather. I said I didn't know what to say. Emily's dad said say, "my beloved Eugene", then Our Lord spoke to me and He said:

                    "This is a gift of My love to you. I am your beloved Savior, My beloved child. I love you all so much."

Emily's dad asked me to sign the book. Jesus spoke further. He said to write:

                    "These are the letters Jesus gives to His beloved souls. He wants them to know how much He truly loves them.

                    Open anywhere and He will speak to you.

                    He loves His beloved Eugene, now his love goes on in all he touched."

Messenger: Read these letters given to us from Jesus.

He loves us all so much.

These are His letters of love to His hungry souls. Open anywhere and He will speak to us.

Please pray for Eugene's family and all his children.

The love of God lives on in the children of the father, like ripples on a pond -----------------the love goes on.

July 23, 2000 - Second Message

Messenger: The more we are one with Jesus, the more we become one with the Father and the Holy Spirit.

God wants us to just be still, in our beds, before the tabernacle, wherever, on a sunny day by a glistening brook, in a crowd. God wants us to have these periods of stillness where we just focus on Him and rest in Him, feeling that presence of God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit within us in a very special way, when we are in the state of grace.

Psalm 23

The good Shepherd

Psalm Of David

Yahweh is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
In grassy meadows he lets me lie

 By tranquil streams he leads me 
to restore my spirit.
 He guides me in paths of saving justice 
    as befits his name.

Even were I to walk in a ravine as dark as death
 I should fear no danger, for you are at my side. 
Your staff and your crook are there to soothe me. 

You prepare a table for me
   under the eyes of my enemies;
 you anoint my head with oil;
   my cup brims over.

Kindness and faithful love pursue me
   every day of my life.
 I make my home in the house of Yahweh
    for all time to come.

Messenger: Jesus gave me this message in the night. He wants us to live in His will, not wanting more than is His will or less, doing His will because we want to please Him. He woke me to give me this message. He also said to just rest in Him, put our trust in Him, love Him with all our hearts and live to serve Him. Sometimes this means letting go of a lot of things that are good things, but not His will for us. Things that throw our lives off and others' lives, too, and keep us too busy to enjoy the precious moments we have with Him. He is God, He can make so many things happen if we surrender to His plan, His will for us. I promised Jesus I would write this today.

Words of Surrender of a Soul

Words of Consecration to God

Today Lord, (today's date), I give You my entire will-

I give You all my liberties, I want to love and serve You as You desire.

I surrender myself to You.

I ask You to run my life.

I ask You to help me act like You, Jesus, and like Your Mother Mary.

God, this day I consecrate myself to You.

I am  (name) , Your beloved child, guide me on my way now as I go about my day (or if in Church) as I leave Your Eucharistic presence.

Messenger: We want to see the transfigured Lord. We have to let go and let Him run our lives. We hold onto clutter many times. We should not want more than what He wants for us. We should want exactly what He wants for us.

From today's Mass

Jeremiah 23: 1-6

‘Disaster for the shepherds who lose and scatter the sheep of my pasture, Yahweh declares. This, therefore, is what Yahweh, God of Israel, says about the shepherds who shepherd my people, "You have scattered my flock, you have driven them away and have not taken care of them. Right, I shall take care of you for your misdeeds, Yahweh declares! But the remnant of my flock I myself shall gather from all the countries where I have driven them, and bring them back to their folds; they will be fruitful and increase in numbers. For them I shall raise up shepherds to shepherd them and pasture them. No fear, no terror for them any more; not one shall be lost, Yahweh declares!

   Look, the days are coming,
      Yahweh declares,
   when I shall raise an upright Branch
      for David;
   he will reign as king and be wise, 
   doing what is just and upright
      in the country. 
In his days Judah will triumph
   and Israel live in safety.
  And this is the name he will be called,
  ‘Yahweh–is–our–Saving–Justice.’ "

Mark 6: 30-34

The apostles rejoined Jesus and told him all they had done and taught. And he said to them, ‘Come away to some lonely place all by yourselves and rest for a while’; for there were so many coming and going that there was no time for them even to eat. So they went off in the boat to a lonely place where they could be by themselves. But people saw them going, and many recognised them; and from every town they all hurried to the place on foot and reached it before them. So as he stepped ashore he saw a large crowd; and he took pity on them because they were like sheep without a shepherd, and he set himself to teach them at some length.

Excerpt from Apostles Manual, pp. 72-74

A Message given from Florida - April 1, 1997

Jesus speaks: You are the leader. There will be no one in line behind you. You may be on the hill and look around and no one will appear to be near, but I am there in the silence of that moment. Know I am with you. The Father and the Holy Spirit are with you. You are one with My Mother and are surrounded by angels and saints.

The world is blind and they do not see. You must see with spiritual vision. See the world beyond. It is real. You are not alone. I am with you at every second, watching you and controlling your breath.

If you cease to believe, who will be the leader? All I have called through you must realize they are the leaders. No one may appear to be near, no one is in line behind you.

You must be constantly motivated by faith. It comes down to this--it is your belief. For, if I call you and you do not hear Me, then My work will not get done. For I am calling you and you can plug up your ears, but souls are being lost at this very moment that you can be helping through your faith. You must have fervor in your prayers.

Satan attacks you all day, in prayer and in work. Will you listen to him or to Me?

I am begging you to see Me alive before you as I came forth from the tomb, glistening and all white. I am here. I have called you by name. You are the apostles I am calling. If you say 'no' the work will not get done.

Read this letter over and over and when you are alone and feel as if you are standing on the hill by yourself see the heavens open up. See Me in celestial light as you saw Me transfigured on the altar. See the great vision of March 26, 1996. Read that message. See Me almost dead on the cross as I was on December 5, 1996 at Immaculata. See My lips move and hear Me speak. No one is listening. They will hear you speak. They will respond to you.

If you give into Satan, they will not hear and they will not know for his whole attempt is to silence you.

So you go to the hilltop. You are close to Me. You look around and you see no one. Below the hill is a throng of people. They have forgotten I exist. The heavens open and I appear and the sky is filled with saints and angels. They continue talking and laughing at the bottom of the hill. The celestial light falls upon them and they continue as in a fog and as blind men to focus on the rocks and the things of this earth.

And you speak. The voice they hear is your voice from the top of the mountain. You appear to be alone by these blind men, but the heavenly court has surrounded you and you see not with earthly vision but with the eyes of faith and you speak in My Name...

"Glory and Praise to God! Hear the words of your Savior. Listen from the mountain top for He has risen and we are His witnesses."

He calls you from the mountain and you say nay for your foolish whims. Come to the mountain top with Me and you will taste of milk sweeter than honey. You will run and not get weary, you will be His faithful witnesses. You will be the children of light shining from the mountain top on the dark world below.

Oh, do not say no, My chosen ones, you are My children of light. I have called and you have responded. Do not be discouraged, but encouraged for (she) appears, the Lady of Light, the Lady of Fatima, the Lady of the Holy Rosary. She appears Our Lady in Clearwater to bring about the completion of the Fatima message there. If you do not believe, who will I send to do the work for I have chosen you!

The Fatima mission will greatly unfold there through the Shepherds of Christ Movement. She appears Our Lady of Light in all the splendor to call her children to her Son, Jesus. She appears as Our Lady of Fatima, 80 years later, to call to the world, to deliver the same message she delivered then. Come to the water and drink and you will not be thirsty for God has visited His people. He has risen. He sends great gifts in the woman clothed as the sun on your building. Some look and they do not see. Some are touched for their hearts are open to the graces that are pouring out there.

Mary speaks: I appear to you, the woman clothed as the sun, Our Lady of Fatima, in splendor and glory to lead a sick race to holiness, to lead them to healing in the Heart of my Son.

For His Heart will reign despite all the actions of men. I appear Our Lady of Fatima on the (former) bank in Florida to you this day. This is my message. This is my little Fatima in the Americas. A permanent sign I give to you this day on the building, a sign for the world and for you.

And you, my chosen one, have faith for it is faith that will save you. The devil wants you stopped. If you listen to him, who will lead the people to my Son? You have been called and chosen by me, Our Lady of Fatima, the woman clothed as the sun and there will be the weeping and gnashing of teeth for many will be lost forever. I send you in the darkness as a beacon light to the world.

I love you. I am your Mother Mary.

Jesus speaks: Pray the prayer for union with Jesus all through the day.

The coloring books for children are finished.

These are in PDF files for immediate print out.

I ask you to print them out for your children.

I further ask for funds if possible to print them and have them available for public circulation.

If you wish to help with the school rosary program or beads for the rosary makers, you can designate this in your donation.

If you wish to help with the priestly newsletter, you can designate this in your donation.

If you wish to give funds strictly for the building in Clearwater, for the rent or purchase, you can designate this.

The Red Rosary Book is out of print because of lack of funds. This, too, can be printed if funds become available.

Messenger: You can designate your funds given to help us for a particular purpose.

We need your prayers so much.

Please pray for us and with us.

Today begins the Novena to St. Ignatius.

Excerpt from July 21, 2000, Daily Message

Messenger: In a few days on July 31, it will be the wonderful feast of our beloved St. Ignatius Loyola. The nine day period before begins July 23. Let's all join together and ask St. Ignatius to intercede to God to grant grace that the Jesuits will help us more and more in this mission. That the Jesuits will help us spreading the priestly newsletter and the consecration and rosary to the earth and all that is needed to help spread the devotion to the Sacred Heart as Jesus desires. We will pray in this 9 day period for ourselves and our calling to help bring about the Reign of the Sacred Heart. We will pray for the Jesuits, whom we love, through the intercession of St. Ignatius.

I love St. Ignatius so much. Every July 31,  I have received the most wonderful graces on this Feast at Mass that day. I feel really close to St. Francis Xavier, too. I think we should pray through his powerful intercession and that of St. Claude La Columbiere and St. Margaret Mary.

Let's make this nine day novena praying through their powerful intercession.

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)
