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: It is community we seek. To worship in one mind and one heart, coming together to praise and give love to our God, to thank our God for this great gift of the Eucharist.
Oh, our God tells us that we are one body. We unite in offering ourselves every day in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
I quote the first message in Blue Book I where He speaks and says, "you will be one in Me and I will be one in you." This is how Jesus began Blue Book I, May 13, 1993.
My dear child, if you stay close to Me, then I live in you and you live in Me. I am He Who created you and I love you with such an intensity that you will never know.
Messenger: This is the mission of these revelations, to draw us into oneness, being one in Him and one with each other.
In China, Indiana, we have a community that lives and worships together. In Florida we have people living in houses, HANDMAIDS, SERVANTS AND APOSTLES. They go to Mass together. They go to their parish church daily attending Mass and pray before the tabernacle. In both places, they work and pray together, they eat together. Their desire is to plead as intercessors praying for our Church and our world.
We came together in Morrow, Ohio, once a week for the main core prayer meeting. In the Cincinnati area all gathered since August 1994 as the core members worshipping God and praying for the priests, the Church and the world. They gathered also on the 17th of each month for the Blue Book Meeting.
We feel that connection in our hearts. January, 2000, Jesus halted the live rosary given once a week at Morrow, Ohio. He said this would strengthen us. We had to listen to His messages on tapes and study the daily messages and read the Blue Books and Father's newsletters. We still joined on the 17th of the month for a social. We were given live rosaries about 2 times a month, on the 13th and 5th.
We gathered for 3 days of prayer in China, Indiana, and many came on the 5th of the month to Morrow, Ohio, and listened to a live rosary tape. It has been a struggle building up the community in Morrow, Ohio.
Today Jesus tells me the secret, it is in joining together in the Mass that our hearts are molded together. We are made one in Him in the Holy Sacrifice, and as we pray before the tabernacle after Communion.
What do we need to help bring about the Reign of the Sacred Heart? A community of persons, a body of people, so united in Him as our Head, worshipping, being united in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass at all times, pleading and begging for grace to be outpoured on the earth and mercy for all men.
Messenger: As we begin little communities of prayer, uniting our hearts in Him through consecration, we are praying more deeply as a body.
The consecration to the pure and holy Hearts of Jesus and Mary is a great part of the Fatima mission. The Fatima message is centered in consecration.
In the Reign of the Sacred Heart all will be in one mind and one heart in Him. The world has many ideas now, some good, some evil. If all were living according to His will, all dwelling in His Heart, there would be great harmony.
This is my prayer today for our Movement--
God, please make us one in our minds and hearts living according to the Father's will, following His plan and not our own selfish plans.
ONE BODY, the foot is connected to the hand, the eye is one with the elbow. When one big toe swells up and it is infected, the whole body suffers.
John 15: 16
You did not choose me,
no, I chose you;
and I commissioned you
to go out and to bear fruit,
fruit that will last;
so that the Father will give you
anything you ask him in my name.
2 Corinthians 4: 7-15
The hardships and hopes of the apostolate
But we hold this treasure in pots of earthenware, so that the immensity of the power is Gods and not our own. We are subjected to every kind of hardship, but never distressed; we see no way out but we never despair; we are pursued but never cut off; knocked down, but still have some life in us; always we carry with us in our body the death of Jesus so that the life of Jesus, too, may be visible in our body. Indeed, while we are still alive, we are continually being handed over to death, for the sake of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus, too, may be visible in our mortal flesh. In us, then, death is at work; in you, life.
But as we have the same spirit of faith as is described in scriptureI believed and therefore I spoke we, too, believe and therefore we, too, speak, realising that he who raised up the Lord Jesus will raise us up with Jesus in our turn, and bring us to himselfand you as well. You see, everything is for your benefit, so that as grace spreads, so, to the glory of God, thanksgiving may also overflow among more and more people.
This is the secret of our being one in Him: being united with one another in consecration in the Mass.
Oh, God, make us united. Oh, God, we want to live united as a body in You. Help us to be in one mind and one heart.
Jesus speaks: The devil will attack more and more. It is harder for him to attack those united. As you unite in your prayers, united to the Mass going on around the world, you are a strong body.
The community is lacking in Morrow, Ohio, because the people need to spend more time worshipping before the Blessed Sacrament and attending Mass as a body at community churches. You are a community of men and women united in consecration, praying for the priests, the Church and the world.
When the prayers are prayed in churches, they act as a community, attending Mass there and praying the prayers of consecration. These prayers help strengthen the community. I have attached tremendous grace to them.
The Sidney, Ohio, Center can help strengthen that already holy community there. As people come, they will carry the prayers to their communities and that will help strengthen that community.
Ephesians 2: 19-22
So you are no longer aliens or foreign visitors; you are fellowcitizens with the holy people of God and part of Gods household. You are built upon the foundations of the apostles and prophets, and Christ Jesus himself is the cornerstone. Every structure knit together in him grows into a holy temple in the Lord; and you too, in him, are being built up into a dwellingplace of God in the Spirit.
1 Peter 2: 4-9
The new priesthood
He is the living stone, rejected by human beings but chosen by God and precious to him; set yourselves close to him so that you, too, may be living stones making a spiritual house as a holy priesthood to offer the spiritual sacrifices made acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. As scripture says: Now I am laying a stone in Zion, a chosen, precious cornerstone and no one who relies on this will be brought to disgrace. To you believers it brings honour. But for unbelievers, it is rather a stone which the builders rejected that became a cornerstone, a stumbling stone, a rock to trip people up. They stumble over it because they do not believe in the Word; it was the fate in store for them.
But you are a chosen race, a kingdom of priests, a holy nation, a people to be a personal possession to sing the praises of God who called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light.
Isaiah 66: 1
Thus says Yahweh:
With heaven my throne
and earth my footstool,
what house could you build me,
what place for me to rest,
Jesus speaks: I desire communities be built of living stones.
I am the Head. I wish to strengthen My Church by the prayers I give. I want to draw them into deeper union with Me.
As members of My body, you are united to every Mass celebrated around the world. Should you not join in that celebration in your hearts and offer sacrifice with the priest?
I come to set the earth on fire with the fire of My love.
I am the God of Abraham and Moses and Noah.
I am the God of the cross that laid down My life for all.
Why do you think today I would not come to My wounded children to draw them into greater oneness as I have spoken of to you?
My mission here is to take all My little ones home to My Heart.
From the Litany of the Sacred Heart:
Heart of Jesus, sacred temple of God.
Jesus speaks: I tell you this, in praying as a community at Mass as I have taught you, you will help to bring down tremendous grace on the world.
How you are at Mass? The disposition of your hearts can enormously affect the world.
You must be united as a community in this work, praying. Satan will work harder in those not united. All can be united in their hearts.
Husbands and wives should pray together as a couple and with their children as a family. Families should attend Mass together. The Mass is so powerful, attending Mass together will help the family stay united. If other members refuse to go to Mass with you, then you must attend Mass yourself, and pray for them at Mass. Do not force older children, but tell them about the Mass and encourage them to go. Children of the ages of 16 should attend Mass with their families, but this may not be possible because of the circumstances, but all reasonable attempts should be made to attend Mass as a family together. The Mass is a prayer of great unity.
Two Catholics receiving the sacrament of matrimony without a Mass miss a great gift from God.
The Mass is the highest form of communal prayer.
Let My name be honored in all homes and in all hearts.
I will reign in their hearts.
Exodus 37: 27
He made two gold rings for it below the moulding on its two opposite sides, to take the shafts used for carrying it.
Jesus speaks: Trust in Me. The very hairs of your head are numbered.
I am a God of justice and right.
I am Savior, Lord of all.
I am the eternal Word.
I am the firstborn from the dead.
I am King Victorious.
I am God. My Church is one, holy, catholic and apostolic. I give you My Church.
She is My Bride.
You are the spouse of the Lamb.
Revelation 21: 9
... Come here and I will show you the bride that the Lamb has married.
Revelation 21: 1-7
D:THE JERUSALEM OF THE FUTURE
The heavenly Jerusalem
Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; the first heaven and the first earth had disappeared now, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride dressed for her husband. Then I heard a loud voice call from the throne, Look, here God lives among human beings. He will make his home among them; they will be his people, and he will be their God, Godwiththem. He will wipe away all tears from their eyes; there will be no more death, and no more mourning or sadness or pain. The world of the past has gone. Then the One sitting on the throne spoke. Look, I am making the whole of creation new. Write this, "What I am saying is trustworthy and will come true."
Then he said to me, It has already happened. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give water from the well of life free to anybody who is thirsty; anyone who proves victorious will inherit these things; and I will be his God and he will be my son.
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.

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)
