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.


Given August 17, 1999 - 1st message

Jesus speaks: You are praying, your churches get better.

You are praying, your world gets better.

It is so!

Rejoice in this.

My Heart is consumed with love for souls.

You are My apostles.


Given August 18, 1999 - 2nd message

Jesus speaks: I want oneness.

I want purity in your love.

I want one voice; I want you to study these messages and be as one voice to the people.

I do not want My message changed in any way.

Be exact, so no matter where you are the people will hear My voice.

I speak to you in the Scriptures, in the Church Doctrines, through My messengers.

I am the Voice of the Good Shepherd, do not go into personal theories, account My words accurately. You must study My messages. Pray for grace to be a good apostle.

Mary speaks: I guard you, I watch you, you are my treasure.

I guard you and watch you every moment.

Do not put poison in your body. You were created to be a temple of the Holy Spirit.

Do not use your body to do sinful acts or penetrate others' bodies in sinful ways. They were created to be temples of the Holy Spirit, too.

Do not put poison in your little heart. You cannot feed your heart and soul garbage, just as you cannot eat it.

Pray for your Church and your world. My little children, you are being taught garbage.

I love you and I cry.

My children, I cry.

I am your Mother Mary.

Please pray with me.

Please, please, please. Join a prayer chapter. Pray the rosary for peace. Help me, please. I am your Mother Mary.

Mary speaks: DON’T PIERCE MY HEART. OBEY JESUS AND HIS Commandments. If anyone puts men on a pedestal above God, he has violated the 1st Commandment. Anything more important to you than God has become your god.

LADY OF CHINA


Excerpt from December 3, 1998 daily message: (Jesus requested this excerpt from the August 19, 1997 rosary).

On August 19, 1997, I received the following messages in a rosary. August 19, 1917, Our Lady appeared to the three children at Fatima, because they had been jailed on August 13, 1917.

Included here is an excerpt from the rosary received August 19, 1997. The next day Jesus appeared to me in the crucifix above the altar at St. Gertrudes church in Cincinnati. He appeared as the most glorious Jesus, adorned in the most brilliant light. Where He had appeared at the point of death December 5, 1996, He now appeared in the greatest brilliant light, as the glorified Jesus on the cross.

Include here the excerpt from rosary August 19, 1997.


Excerpt from the rosary of August 19, 1997

Jesus:  Come away with Me, My young ones. Come into the field and taste of the beauty of the air and the beauty of this day with the most beautiful flowers that I have created for you. Do you see the beauty in each petal of the flower, or are your eyes covered with mud that you do not see? I have lifted the veil for you today and I have showed you My way. My way is the way of trust and faith and I told you in the message on Sunday that you must have faith and endurance, for I took you to the darkest night to the pointiest tunnel, to the place where you thought that you would never return and at that point I opened up through a little hole the light of day and it came streaming in and you perceived and you felt My presence, which is greater than all the things of this earth.

    Wipe the grin off your face you silly earth, for you have ran after so many foolish things, when I stood there adorned in white before you, in the most glorious robes and you did not perceive that the Almighty God was alive and so I have called and I have told you and I have allowed you, My shepherds, to suffer, but the days ahead will be days of great victory, for I come to you clothed in white and adorned in a gold veil and you see that God lives and you will carry the white flag across this earth. You My shepherds, have won and the victory is yours.

    Did you fall in the mud and did you skin your knees, did you feel your head ache as Mine ached in the garden, did you feel the thorns poke deeply into your skull, and did you feel the ripping of your flesh as the sword went into your skin?

    I am Jesus, I am God, I will not be undone. I am Almighty and all powerful to the ends of the earth. You will know My might and you will not be afraid, but you will not know this if you do not trust, for I have told you the secrets in My messages, but you do not read as if you believe, you read half heartedly. You must believe with all your heart that I speak to you to be heard, for you truly are the shepherds that will go across this earth and carry the white flag, but you do not have this conviction within your heart, so therefore you do not do all that I have asked you to do, your belief is wishy-washy and you do not believe with a conviction of a strong heart.

    I am calling you My shepherds this night to renew your faith and your endurance to realize that I am God and I have spoken here to you this evening. I am alive, I am alive, I am alive and I am with you, I am your God.

    You wanted the light all the time and the light was not in the plan of the Father. It comes in light and it comes in darkness, it comes in death and it comes in victory, it comes in death and it comes in Resurrection, it comes in pain, and it comes in joy, but this world tells you today to look for only the joy and when you do not find it to do everything that you can to fill your selfish pleasurish whims that you have within you.

    I tell you that you must fall to your knees, that your knees will be scuffed and that you will suffer and your flesh will be torn and your head will be crowned with thorns, but you will come forth from the tomb with a veil of white across your face and you will say this is the victory that we have won because we have lived in Him.

Jesus: Your Movement will spread forth to the far ends of the earth, but it is faith that I am calling you to My beloved ones, you must have faith in your hearts, for this is a sign that I give to you this day. If you do not believe, you will not be able to continue ahead, for you must move ahead in faith. It is the only way that you must operate. You cannot operate trying to logically think your way across this world. It is only in believing and obeying the messages that the job will get done. It is My might that will lead this Movement to the far corners of the earth. Open your pockets and let us see your money. Do you have the money to do the things that I have asked you to do? It is in prayer, hourly prayer and begging for the funds, realizing that it is in your prayer, that it is in your endurance, that it is in your faith and your sacrifices that your prayers will be answered. You must pray hourly the Novena to the Infant of Prague and I will answer your prayers, and you My beloved ones will know the results when you pray.

Song: This is Holy Ground

Jesus: I have given to you the greatest gift this day. I am Jesus, and I have come to you and I have asked you to open wide your heart and to thank Me for the gift I have given, for if the answer would have been different how would your hearts be this night, and how was it with the lepers, when I gave to them the great gift and they did not come and say thanks, but you are My holy ones that I am sending into this world and your hearts must be filled with joy. I have asked you over and over again to sing to Me with a heart that is filled with joy. I have given to you songs that I wrote Myself for you to sing of the love of My Heart. I am Jesus, the Son of God and you are the apostles of this new era. As you go out into the dark night the light will shine behind you and many will know the light of My Heart. Do not be discouraged, for the very hairs of your head are numbered and I am with you at this very moment, guarding and watching you, give Me your heart My shepherds. I have given to you a great gift this day, give Me your thanks and continue to pray. It is through prayer that you will accomplish all that the Father intends you to accomplish.

    I am Jesus, the Son of God. I have chosen you, I have called you and you will accomplish the work that the Father intends you to through prayer. Do not be discouraged, but encouraged for I am God and I am with you. Think of how it was before, when you did not share your love with so many others, but I have given you each other and I have bound your hearts in one heart and you come here because your hearts are filled with great joy. The more you love and the more the Movement spreads, the more will be the blessings, for as the love expounds and gets larger, the love is more full, for your love is rooted in Me and the more you love deeply the more full the love you will have. This is how it will be, one body in Me, and you will love many and you will know them deeply in your heart and your heart is full My shepherds, because I have taught you My ways of love and given you each other. You are My holy family and I love you. I have called you and so you say “why me?”, and I say to you “why this Saint, or that Saint or why the Blessed Mother, why were you called?”. You were called because I love you and I have given to you a great grace to be My shepherd in the Shepherds of Christ Movement.

Excerpt from March 7, 1999 daily message:

On August 20, 1997, He appeared in the most glorious light, transfigured before me at St. Gertrude's Church in Cincinnati. I heard the Father speak and He said:

"This is My beloved Son in whom I am well pleased. LISTEN TO HIM."


Excerpt from The Spirituality of Fatima and Medjugorje, p. 15-16.

Because of the excitement caused by the apparitions, the civil authorities were so alarmed that they kidnapped the three young visionaries and put them in jail. The incarceration period included the day of August 13. Consequently, Our Lady did not appear to the children on this particular 13th.

The authorities, fearing reaction on the part of the people, quickly released the children. Mary appeared to them on August 19 near Valinhos:

She told them she was greatly displeased by the action of the mayor. As a result, the miracle promised for October would not be as impressive as originally planned. 15
