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.
Mary speaks: My children, I love you, help me reach my children.
Messenger: Today is August 19, 2000. On August 19, 1917, Our Lady appeared at Fatima, 83 years ago.
Excerpt from The Spirituality of Fatima and Medjugorje
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

Messenger: Mary did not appear August 13, 1917, because they jailed the children.
Messenger: I ask you to pray with us every day as our Lord and our Lady requested. They have asked us to pray a rosary for the removal of "blocks" to the Movement.
I beg for your prayers for four special intentions of our Lord.

On August 21, 2000, we would say (from the Jiffy Sheet chart) the Joyful mysteries for the Movement and the Glorious mysteries for the "blocks" to the Movement.
It is a great gift that Mary appears on the building. On the 5ths I clearly see her appear in the dark night, and she turns gold the more we sing.
Mary wants us to promote her image so people will pray the prayers as her Son Jesus has told us and spread the priestly newsletter, Blue Books and rosary meditations, especially to the youth and school children.
Here is a picture of Mary taken July 5, 2000, while I prayed the rosary in Florida. She usually appears toward the end mysteries of the rosary, and the more we sing, the more she turns gold.
Messenger: This month of September, the 5th is on a Tuesday. Please begin praying for healing graces in connection with this rosary.
|Also Tuesday, August 22, 2000, Feast of the Queenship of Mary, we pray a live healing rosary in Sidney, Ohio, at 6:20 p.m.. Please pray with us, or come if you are able. Call 1-513-932-4451.|
Messenger: God wants our love, adoration and honor given Him at Mass, our hearts filled with thanks for His gifts to us, our hearts lifted high telling Him how sorry we are that we have sinned. God wants us to make reparation to Him for our sins and the sins of the human race and to make reparation to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.
Revelation 12: 1-2
Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman, robed with the sun, standing on the moon, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. She was pregnant, and in labour, crying aloud in the pangs of childbirth.
Messenger: I ask the poem about Mary be placed here.
Excerpt from the August 9, 2000 Daily Message
Oh, there is not one so fair as thee, my beloved Mother Mary.
Of all the maidens that God could have chosen it was you, oh shining Star of Heaven.
Oh Mary, Mother of us all.
She doth appear as a wonder so fair indeed,
A permanent sign of God's love.
A Woman clothed in gold.
One that glistens with the radiance of a golden tone,
Her beauty dancing in the sunlit hours of every day.
In morning splendor, in dancing light at noon day as the sun glistens on her rainbow glow and at night she has appeared on special dates in golden splendor and light.
Would you quote the Scripture for Mary so fair.
"Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman, robed with the sun, standing on the moon, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. She was pregnant, and in labour, crying aloud in the pangs of childbirth." (Revelation 12: 1-2)
Would you see her as she appeared in little villages in the 20th century, tucked in hills and out of the way places.
If you missed these enormous signs from heaven, of one so fair, she appears there clothed in the golden sun of the day, reflecting her radiant beauty painted by the hand of the Father. She is His chosen maiden so fair.
She appears daily, she is there by day and beneath the black shadows of night, she does not slumber, but calls to her children of light to come through her golden doorway and let the light of Christ shine in their souls.
She appears one so fair, by day and sometimes by night clothed in radiance and golden, her garment hemmed with glistening sunlight. She once appeared to a few and her visits fleeting in remotest places, she remains a Woman Clothed with the Sun, the sun dancing on her garments of rainbow color on a busy, busy corner for all to see, in the state of the sun, sunny Florida. She is a Woman painted by the brush of God.
And do you know the wonder of one who calls the children far and wide, to hear the voice of her Son, Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the Flock.
Mary, the heavenly maiden, to call them home to His Heart.
Oh, of one so fair, do we not boast and praise our God and thank Him for such a wonder.
Oh, to Mary, Queen of Heaven and Earth, we cry, help us to do what you asked for at Fatima and help us in our mission of telling the world of your Son's desire to spread His Movement so men will be Shepherds of Christ.
Messenger: And the poem a few days later from God the Father and me.
Excerpt from the August 11, 2000 Daily Message
The blue of the sky we cannot capture exactly.
The white of the snow.
The color of the smoke of the geyser.
Do we not see the fire of the stars, the light of the sun, the denseness of the black night. It is the creation of God and we cannot describe it exactly as it is.
Oh, open your eyes, men, and see the softness of the skin of the baby, the intricacies of a human ear, the complexities of a human eye and the master mind of the Creator in the function of a human heart.
Oh, blind men, those who are so prideful, bow to God your Creator. See with the eyes of faith.
It is I who paint the hills with My mystical wand. It is reality. So, too, the things you do not see, they are real. It is your perception that is off. God Is and He is Divine and you cannot create as I do.
Get off your pedestals and live in reality. I am Supreme, you are under Me, but I elevate you to such heights.
Oh, men of the earth, worship God your Creator, be humble, live in the truth. If you are intelligent it is because of My grace and My goodness.
Huffy little men. Let Me see you produce the beauty of a sunlit field, from sun to flower. My men, you are limited, you are human, you are My creatures and I am your God. Recognize Me and live in the truth. Be docile to the hand of God in your life.
Oh, children of the light, hear Me, I am God.
I am the Light of the World.
In Me you live in the light.
My eyes beheld the beauty of the night, the stars, the moon.
My eyes beheld the sunlit day and the wonders of the lake and heard the trickle of the falls. First, faintly, and then as I approached, the sound of roaring water.
Why do men not comprehend the goodness of God? Why do they abuse Him with slang and slanting remarks?
The forest can burst into flame in the heat of the day and what was once a beauteous field, a garden of fruit, a forest of fir trees, can become lands of waste at the hands of the elements or what have you.
A home of lustrous beauty, ravaged by a violent wind of enormous proportion and you cry and then when the reality sets in you say, "Oh, but I have my life and the life of my children."
Oh, what is it that man can be so blind and then when health is taken away from a man, he sees those things that are transcendent, he sees the glory of God and the promise of everlasting life to those who love and serve the Lord.
We do not see and we do not understand the ways of God and yet in it all, He is attempting to lead us to Him, and He gives us the gifts of the universe. He gives us love.
I am the Good Shepherd, these are My prayers, the prayers I give to help renew the Church and the world, all prayer chapters are asked to include these prayers (found in the Shepherds of Christ Prayer Manual). As My Apostles and Shepherds I ask you to encourage all existing Chapters to try to encourage all existing prayer groups to pray the Shepherds of Christ prayers. Encourage all Churches to pray these prayers. It is most urgent that the people of this earth concur with the Father's wishes to begin Prayer Chapters. This is an urgent request from the Good Shepherd. The flock will become one when they have given their hearts to Jesus and Mary. Encourage all priests to pray the Shepherds of Christ prayers. Your world will be lighted with great light as the people of this earth pray these prayers.
My promise is this to you My beloved earth: When you give your heart to Me and spread the devotion to My Sacred Heart, I will write your name In My Heart. I promise to give the greatest graces when you pray these prayers for renewal of the Church and the world and take all who pray them deeply into My Heart. The prayers I give will bring about the reign of My Sacred Heart and the triumph of Mary's Immaculate Heart. I am Jesus Christ, this is My message of January 22, 1998, Please circulate this message to your world. I am the Good Shepherd, I know Mine and Mine know Me and they follow Me. Grace My Shepherds, I will give you the greatest graces for spreading these words to this earth and to your Church. I love you, I am Jesus Christ, the Son of Man, it is the Plan of the Father that Prayer Chapters are begun immediately and the Priestly Newsletter is given to all priests. The Voice of the Good Shepherd speaks through it.
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 August 14, 2000 daily message
Mary speaks: I desire the following photo pictures be circulated.

Mary speaks: I ask anyone that can to help with this.

I wish this message to be made available.
(End of Excerpt from August 14, 2000 daily message)
Messenger: Please pray through the intercession of Jacinta for the building and all intentions of Our Lady of Fatima and Our Lady of Clearwater.
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)
MY VALENTINE FOR JESUS AND

Q: How can I become more one with you and others by being willing to look more fully at myself and my masks that I wear that keep me from being closer to others in loving relationships, including Jesus and you?
