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.

Jesus speaks: My people, I wish more of the writings of August, 1994, to appear here.

The Invisible Wounds

Messenger: The invisible wounds of Mary: Mary stood by His cross. She had watched all that her Son had suffered. She watched this horrible sequence of events that led to this final hour. She did not bleed. She did not have one mark on her body, only the teared, red ridges from her deepened crying. She stood, held up by the arms of her beloved John. This was her precious Son, her Baby at birth, her Baby at His death.

Invisible wounds: The pains of the heart, the sufferings of the mind, the sights seen with her loving Motherly eyes. She knew of His love for all.

She appears with a face reflecting the ridges from her deep crying, so sorrowful no words could describe. What can we say for the sorrow of this face? I cannot describe it. It looked as if it was ready to crack!

This face tells the story of His love for us. Her Heart was so torn inside that to know her suffering is to tear at my heart. The invisible scars: to watch Him stripped and beaten and to silently stand by and cry. She appears to tell us of her invisible scars. She appears and shows me her faces, young and old, sorrowful and joyful. She appears to tell us the story of His love for us.

Do we listen, do we see?

She saw His Blood all over. I remember seeing one of my children bleed and he had to get stitches - it was such a horrible sight. He kept bleeding and bleeding. Blood comes from deep inside. It is scary because we have no control over it. If you bleed enough, you die. My child was bleeding. It was very upsetting!

Mary watched Jesus bleed and bleed. It was as though He could not have had all the Blood He had. He stood in a puddle of Blood when He was scourged - it ran from His face and from His mouth - from the blows to His head. It was so awful to watch my child bleed, but to watch others beat Him and make Him bleed more and make His Body raw! There is such a bond between a mother and her child, such wanting to protect and help him. Mary helplessly watched this horrible massacre of her Son, knowing He did it for love of us. She could not help Jesus. She was not allowed, only to watch more and more battering.

Jesus speaks: Oh, you are so senseless. I write to you of My love and no one listens. Mary appears to tell you how much I suffered for love of you. My Passion is My proof of how I love you. I gave every drop of My Blood for you. You don’t understand: this is the reality, that I am God and I suffered so brutally for love of you!

Mary speaks: Turn your lives toward my Son. What do I say to get you to listen? Life is only passing. I appear. I show you my face. You will never comprehend how my Son suffered for love of you! This is the real world. This is the truth that He bled and bled for love of you, that He stood there silently in all the beatings, and accepted to show you the way. I watched, my precious little ones. I watched and my Heart was torn from my chest with suffering, watching this massacre of my beautiful Baby Son, for love of you!

I appear with blood in my eyes, the invisible blood my eyes shed during His Passion, to watch Him bleed and be beaten raw by His attackers.

And what does He ask in return? He asks you to love God and love one another. Do this, for your reward is everlasting life.

Question for married couples and others in intimate relationships:
