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: A voice cries out in the wilderness
prepare the way of the Lord
Isaiah 40: 3
A voice cries, 'Prepare in the desert
a way for Yahweh.
Make a straight highway for our God
across the wastelands.
Isaiah 42: 1-4, 6-7
Here is my servant whom I uphold,
my chosen one
in whom my soul delights.
I have sent my spirit upon him,
he will bring fair judgement to the nations.
He does not cry out or raise his voice,
his voice is not heard in the street;
he does not break the crushed reed
or snuff the faltering wick.
Faithfully he presents fair judgement;
he will not grow faint,
he will not be crushed
until he has established
fair judgement on earth,
and the coasts and islands
are waiting for his instruction.
I, Yahweh, have called you
in saving justice,
I have grasped you by the hand
and shaped you;
I have made you a covenant of the people
and light to the nations,
to open the eyes of the blind,
to free captives from prison,
and those who live in darkness
from the dungeon.
Matthew 3: 13-17
Jesus is baptised
Then Jesus appeared: he came from Galilee to the Jordan
to be baptised by John. John tried to dissuade him, with the words, ‘It
is I who need baptism from you, and yet you come to me!’ But Jesus
replied, ‘Leave it like this for the time being; it is fitting that we
should, in this way, do all that uprightness demands.’ Then John gave in
And when Jesus had been baptised he at once came up from the water, and suddenly the heavens opened and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and coming down on him. And suddenly there was a voice from heaven, ‘This is my Son, the Beloved; my favour rests on him.’
August 29, 2003 message continues
Messenger: Jesus is the head of the Church.
John was beheaded
Matthew 6: 17-29
But when you fast, put scent on your head and wash your face, so that no one will know you are fasting except your Father who sees all that is done in secret; and your Father who sees all that is done in secret will reward you.
‘Do not store up treasures for yourselves on earth, where moth and woodworm destroy them and thieves can break in and steal. But store up treasures for yourselves in heaven, where neither moth nor woodworm destroys them and thieves cannot break in and steal. For wherever your treasure is, there will your heart be too.
The eye, the lamp of the body
‘The lamp of the body is the eye. It follows that if your eye is clear, your whole body will be filled with light. But if your eye is diseased, your whole body will be darkness. If then, the light inside you is darkened, what darkness that will be!
God and money
‘No one can be the slave of two masters: he will either hate the first and love the second, or be attached to the first and despise the second. You cannot be the slave both of God and of money.
Trust in Providence
‘That is why I am telling you not to worry about your life and what you are to eat, nor about your body and what you are to wear. Surely life is more than food, and the body more than clothing! Look at the birds in the sky. They do not sow or reap or gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they are? Can any of you, however much you worry, add one single cubit to your span of life? And why worry about clothing? Think of the flowers growing in the fields; they never have to work or spin; yet I assure you that not even Solomon in all his royal robes was clothed like one of these.
Excerpt from October 18, 1998 daily message
Messenger: I heard about Conyers in March of '93, and went there in April of '93. At that time, in the prayer room in the apparition house April 14-15, my family and I saw a man clothed in a burlap type sack which looked very strange. The man's eyes were focused upward and then he disappeared. There were only about two people besides my family in the apparition house. Later, as we were taking photos, we almost tripped over the man. His burlap garment blended in with the floor, and he was bent over as in a ball, praying on the floor.
I thought later that it could have been St. John the Baptist. This was my first experience at Conyers.
Cling to Me
May 13, 1993
Jesus speaks: 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. My words are your truth. You must abide in My heart in all things. There is no room for doubt. My ways are steadfast, direct, and without error.
You must stay rooted in Me to ward off the power of the evil one. His grip is paralyzing and crippling. His power is stronger every day.
When you live in Me, I am in your heart and he has no power over Me. I am your God. I am your true lover. I want to protect you. I want to guard you from this force. Stay rooted firmly in Me and he will have no power.
I am He Who comforts you. My hand is upon you. Hold tight to Me, My child. My eyes are fixed right on you. You are My most precious child. I love you as no other can. My arms are about you. My tenderness surrounds you. My love is in your heart. You go not alone. I walk with you.
I share every aspect of your life with you. Cling to Me, feel My presence. It is warm and secure within your chest. There is no room for fear, for I cast out fear and bring you comfort and joy.

Walk in the Way of the Light
May 9, 1994 After Communion
R. Our feet carry us about in this world. We do not think much about our feet and how they do this job.
I have received visions of feet. In 1978, when I received a gift from God, I saw a shoe and I heard the verse, "Walk in the way of the Light."
I have a free will. My path must be the path set by the Master. He leads, I follow. His ways are not always the ways I want to follow. I sometimes do not want to forgive. I do not want to let go of hurts when I have been wronged. I want to hold on and be angry. Walk in the way of the Lord! I do not want to obey when I have a letter that is not nice, but that I must deliver. I would rather be popular and not cause any discomfort. "Walk in the way of the Lord."
Is this the same as doing His Will? I wanted to sing in the choir at the Athenaeum. I liked it. I felt important. I was singing beautiful songs to God. He took my voice away! I finally saw what His Will was for me. I wanted something very much. He didn't want me there.
I can see now so many things I wanted. I wanted to play the music at daily Mass. 'What a good thing to do!', you say? He wanted me to go to Mass and listen to His words and spend time in adoration after Mass and write these letters.
I wanted to get my children through college. I continued to teach. I lost my voice and I was miserable. I wanted to spend my time with Jesus. I spent some time with Him, but I had to work, too. I couldn't talk so I wrote up long lectures and tried to make it work. It made me miserable. For two years and two months, my voice was almost entirely out of commission but I still received special recognition for teaching. I worked hard to do a good thing. Teaching is a good thing. He was calling me to be writing these letters. I did my will and wrote some, but it was misery. I couldn't breathe because my vocal chords would swell and I had trouble breathing. Did I listen? When do we listen?
God speaks in the inner promptings of our hearts. The more I listened, the more I heard, the more I realized that I must have no preconceived ideas of what is to happen. He directs me. I knew these things were good things. I knew I was doing His Will.
I was a teacher. I went to school all those years. I had to teach. It was right. But it wasn't His Will! I can't try to think and make sense out of what is a good thing. I have to listen and wait for His answer-when He gives it. I know in my heart what He is saying, like it or not. His Will is His Will, not mine. They might be the same, or they might be entirely different, but I have to do His Will!
His Will He makes clear in the inner promptings of my heart. He speaks directly to me. I must be still to hear. I have to pray every day to the Holy Spirit for His gifts. When He tells me His Will, I know it is what He wants me to do. I don't figure it out. I am told and I know I have to do it. Then He nags me until I do. To me it is like a toothache. It stops when I do His Will. It bothers me until I do it.
He told me this morning that I am not perfect. I was being pushed by my son and I got angry. Then I felt, "What is the use? I got angry. Now give it all up." He said, "You are not perfect. Say you are sorry and move on."
In my pride, I think I should be perfect and know all things and never be learning His way. His way He makes clear to us in the inner promptings of our hearts. I am human. I fall, I say I am sorry, I learn a lesson. I do not get angrier and keep on being nasty or mean and then say, "Well, this is the end of this." In humility, I say I am sorry and move on to serving our precious Lord Who loves us so. This is His way!
Jesus: Walk in My way, My dear children. Walk. Your feet carry you down the road. Follow the road of the Master. If you take a bad turn, get back on the road. I am leading. I am waiting. I am walking with you where you walk. I never leave you. You move away from Me. I stay steadfastly by you.
Oh, child, be humble. Do not let pride and anger eat at your heart. When you are wrong, admit it and do My Will. I am calling you to follow Me. Follow My path. It is the only way to your happiness and peace of mind. Wherever you go, My sweet one, you never travel alone. I am with you. Love, love, love. Do not let Satan work in your head.
If I am telling you to do something, do it, even if it is unpleasant. This is what teaches you the way of the Lord. The more you obey Me, the more you hear Me. I am God. I do not necessarily communicate as you do. I may use your senses, but I do not need them to talk to you. I do not need words. I give you promptings. You know when I speak to you and you know you must follow.
Open yourselves up to Me. Pray to be open and to know how to listen to Me. I am God and I want to tell you all you need to know. No one can speak to you as I do in your heart. Come and be with Me in silence and let Me talk to you. I love you so, dear ones. I will never steer you wrong.
R. He never told me, in the letters, to get out of the chorale. I had to hear it in my heart after much misery, as I was holding on. I went to the doctor. I took voice lessons (with no voice) for two years and two summers. I continued to take voice lessons with no voice! I took antibiotics, and could hardly breathe, but I kept teaching the next year. Did He tell me to quit? No, He waited until after I had quit and then said, "You will not have any problem with your voice if you do not teach."
He gives us promptings in our hearts. He wants us to hear with our hearts. He taught me about His ways in the letters. Things about my life I had to hear in my heart. He communicates in our hearts, directly to us. Doing His Will is doing His Will. Do we cover up what He says and do what we want? Every time I do not listen to Him I move farther from Him and I hear less because my pipeline is not clear.
I cannot disobey Him ever or I cannot stand it. If I don't do His Will, I am miserable. If the whole world hates me, I still want to do His Will.

all my jobs and used my voice and
energy, just for this work.

ecstasies of my heart to receive
the Son of God.
I feel as if I am in a blinded world -
for they do not see so clearly
that which to me is everything.

I cry to have You within me. -
I sing to Thee the words You
gave to me.

me so much, He is the initiator, I

Jesus, you act on my soul, your love
encompasses me - surrounds me -
saturates me -
Oh God do words exist to express
a heavenly embrace -
No I cannot ever write my
satisfaction, but He wants me to
speak of His burning love for
me and you and the tremendous
grace He gives me in the Eucharist.
"Oh burning love -
Oh Heart Divine
How sweet you are to me -
I see the host,
I know you're here to
love and care for me."

want this presence of Thee to end -
I want to stay in this deep intimate

I Am Sorrowful To Know The Hearts Of Men
Messenger: Such emotion I feel, looking at Mary's statues. I can hardly take it in. I feel so close to Christ in my heart and have an intense longing for Him. I felt a burning in my chest, wanting more. I felt such sorrow around Mary, I couldn't bear to look at the statue and wanted to cry.
Mary speaks: My little girl, I am Mary, your beloved mother. As I have told you, you will suffer. My Heart is so sad for all those who do not know the love of my Son.

He Thought Of Us - And Endured All He Had To Suffer
Messenger: I am realizing there is a constant presence of Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Jesus stood before the crowd when they condemned Him to death. He was surrounded by hatred and the mob agreed that our beloved Jesus, Who is love, deserved to be crucified. He had done nothing but give love, but through the hardness of their hearts they surrounded Him and condemned Him to death.
The devil is, oh, so cunning. He is callous. He is hate-filled. He wells up in men's hearts and acts through them. When we are persecuted by those around us, by one person, by many, the example of Jesus is what we must follow. The devil is so strong. There will be more mass persecutions of us, as Christians. By mass, I mean, several or more persons taking a stand against us and persecuting us. Whenever I am innocent and being attacked by several persons accusing me of a misdeed, Satan is at work.
But, the interior awareness of God is what will sustain us! Jesus had a constant awareness of the love between Him and the Father. Jesus knew all the men who persecuted Him and loved them. Jesus had a constant awareness of each person, the divine, unique creation of the Father. He saw all this hatred before Him and still loved these people as the Father loved them.
Jesus speaks: They may persecute you, My child, several in number, and you will stand as the mighty oak. Your roots are rooted firmly in the love of God, and you are aware of My presence within you always. You are never abandoned. Everything that happens, I am allowing. The very hairs of your head are numbered.
Messenger: Jesus stood condemned to death. Jesus, tied to a pillar, allowed men to tear His precious Flesh away. He bled the very Blood in His veins. How did Jesus still love such ruthless men? The constant awareness of men as "divinely created" allowed Him to love them as God the Father's creatures. He saw the divine creation of the Father and loved them. He is one with the Father. He knew the Father's love. He knew the Father's will and He, Who is God, could have stopped all of it, but He wanted to do the will of His Father. He thought of us and His love, so deep for us, and endured all He had to suffer for our salvation.
Jesus speaks: My Blood was spent. My Life was given. I am He Who died and has risen so that you might have new life! In every death there is the resurrection into new life.
Messenger: To constantly keep the Resurrection before our eyes when we experience suffering is a key factor in living the new life.
Jesus speaks: I come to bring you life that you may have it to the fullest. When they persecute you and holler every slander against you, keep your eyes forever set on your heavenly Kingdom.
September 3, 1994
You Will Stand As A Mighty Oak
Messenger: I am realizing more and more the Presence of God at all times. Interiorly, I am constantly aware of this Presence of Father, Son and Holy Spirit. This Presence is so strong that I cannot feel abandoned.
I am as the baby at the breast. I know my loving Father more and more and I know He will care for me. I know that Jesus and the Holy Spirit are forever with me. I feel as if I have a coating on me, between me and the world, and I am so protected by this interior union.
No one can ever touch this union with God. This is why I live to be forever connected as one with Him. The more I become one in Him, the more I experience this protection.
The wind may come and blow, you may be rocked in your place, but the interior life of the love of God is forever in my breast.
I have an awareness more and more that I love my brothers so much as I see them as created by my loving Father. He loves them so much. He is one with them. How can I not love them? I see less their faults and more their beauty as His creation. I know Jesus gave the last drop of His Blood for them and would die for them this very day. How could I hate anyone that He loves so much! To love Jesus is to love my brother. I cannot love Jesus and hate my brother. He is one with them. He is so good and loving. I love Him. I am one in Him and He is one in me. My brother is one in Him. If I am one with Jesus and I love Jesus, then I must love my brother because he is one with Jesus and we are all one, united in Him.
I am constantly aware that He allows everything that happens and I must accept it. If He allows me to suffer, it is with great love He allows this suffering. He forever watches us and guards us and loves us. A little child doesn't stop and think about its mother's care and love. The child knows and operates with the assuredness he will be taken care of.
Lord, give to me the assuredness of a little child. Let me know I am forever loved by You. Let me operate with this certainly of Your love.
God is loving and caring for me.
September 3, 1994
I Cry For The Souls
Messenger: Notes: When the Host was raised, I kept hearing with emotion the song, "This is My Body". He was talking about passion before Mass. I heard, "This is My Blood". This triggered all His explanations of how He gave His very Flesh and Blood for us.
I wanted to cry. Tears came down. I was filled with immense emotion, couldn't look at Mary's statue. I love Him so much. I am aware of all the souls that will be lost because they do not know His love. I know it so well. I can't speak.
The world stands still and it is so clear to me about the existence of the other side. It is as if I am not here. I know His love so much. He is so much ONE with me. I want to help others to know this love!
He died so they would go to heaven and what do I do to tell others of this love?
I love Him so much and I love all others because they are one in Him and I want to spread His love.
My heart is torn apart in my chest for souls that I know will be lost because they did not know Him and He wants to love them so much. He loves them so much that He gave His Flesh and Blood for them.
I cry for the souls that are on the way to hell if they do not change. I cry for the senseless ones. I cry for my beloved brothers whom I love so deeply.
Crying is no way to release agonies of the heart. That is why He sweat Blood. That is why Mary appears crying blood, her face cracked.
This is reality. This is the world. These are His beloved ones. God, the Father, loves them so dearly. Jesus died for them. The Holy Spirit loves them so. Mary is by their sides and with all this, they will be lost forever to hell if they do not change.
Prayer is the answer. No drop of water will ever quench their thirst if they go to hell. Our prayers are our love for our brothers.
Mary speaks: My children, my Heart was pierced with a sword to watch my beloved Son suffer so for love of you. Pray the rosary for our beloved brothers. Sacrifice, offer your days in union with the Mass for their souls. Time is so short, my beloved ones. Pray, pray, pray. Your prayers can help save the lives of your brothers. Time is short. I am Mary, your Mother and thank you for responding to my call.

One In Him
Messenger: To be separate from God is to be lonely. I am to be one in Him. I was created, and my being craves union with Him. The further I am from this union, the more my soul needs this union. The craving becomes stronger the closer I get to Him.
But this union cannot be on this earth as close as my soul craves. The awareness of this desire for union makes me closer to Him. He is one in me and I am one in Him.
The more I reach an awareness that God truly dwells within me, the more this awareness brings me my peace.
The longing in my soul is a longing for completeness, only found in God.
I do not want to be alone. God unites Himself to us and we are made whole in Him.
Any existence without Him is an intense state of loneliness.
The soul craves Him as steel is drawn to a magnet. The closer the soul gets to Him, the more it is pulled as steel is pulled to a magnet. Other things surrounding the steel have little significance because the pull is so strong to the magnet.
I am pulled to Jesus. I want ever so much more. There is a pull that exists, that pulls me to Him and Him alone. In the earlier letter He said, "You are drawn to Me like steel to a magnet". I thought of a little pull, a wanting to be united. I understand this day that this pull is such a pull that it is almost impossible to be separate! It is a drawing together in power of one to the other. This is the power I feel in front of the tabernacle. I feel a sadness to leave.
I feel a presence in my chest after Communion, sometimes immense fullness when I am meditating on the Trinity and Mary. There is definitely a presence within my heart.
As I realize this presence within me, I realize I cannot mistreat others or myself. My awareness of His oneness with you compels me to love you because you are one in Him.
We are all one in Him and I see my brothers as true brothers in Christ with God the Father as our Father. It becomes harder for me not to love as I grow in my awareness of God. We are all one in Christ. How can I not love my brothers when you are the divine creation of my Father and Jesus gave His very Blood and Life for you?
How can I not love you, my bothers, when your very own Father and Mother are my very own Father and Mother?
We are all one body in Christ. To hate you is to hate part of the Body of Christ. I feel so much more united to all of humanity, the more I grow in my love and union with Him.
To die to myself and put on Christ happens in varying degrees. As I love, I love more intently. I surrender more fully. I am in a state of union with Him, to a more intense union with Him.
The more I die to myself, the more He possesses my soul, the more I am united in Him.
Love provides the warmth, the spark, the flutter in my heart, the flicker in the fire, the roaring emotion in my heart. God wants love and union with us.

Focus On This, My Presence
Jesus speaks: Be, My child, of a clean heart. I come into your heart in a special way. The interior awareness of the Holy Trinity is what I want you to always have. Such awareness that I, God, am so closely bonded to your heart. This bond is like glue, My Godly glue. I bind Myself to you in your heart. Your interior union with me will light up your chest and your heart will beat as one with Mine.
Focus on this, My Presence. I am united to you in the deepest love. Bonded to your heart, your heart set ablaze by My power and my might. You will have peace and joy when you realize My intense union with you.
I am here, child. I am joined to your heart in such union. I live and dwell within your breast. Die totally to yourself and live only in My love.
Read and reread this letter. Keep it in your purse. I want this complete union with you. The immensity of the Father's love for you and the love of the Holy Spirit and Mary will forever fill your chest. I am espoused to your heart. I am your most precious Jesus, Son of God. My child, surrender yourself to Me. I love you.

Agonies Of The Heart, The Greatest Of All Agonies
Jesus speaks: My soul aches for you, My precious child. How I long for your love. How I gave My very Self for you and this day I am ignored and forgotten. I am God. I am in your midst this very day, but people are so fixed on the things of this world.
Do you know how My soul longs for union with My precious ones? I allow you to experience the feeling of intense longing as if your heart will break. My love I pour out to all My beloved ones and I am ignored and forgotten. I give Myself to them. I remain with them in such intense love in the Eucharist and I am ignored.
Oh, My child, I give this to you to reach My little ones with this knowledge of My Heart. No one knows the pains of the heart as I suffered so for the neglect. To give My very own Flesh and Blood and be rejected and treated so coldly by those I died for! Agonies of the heart, the greatest of all agonies and My love so freely given for all. My Heart, a burning furnace of endless love, swelling up with such intensity and ardent love, to be ignored and forgotten!
My child, My Heart is as you cannot even comprehend, but I give Myself to you because I love them so. Tell them of My love. Your heart aches as I allow you to experience such heartache. My child, My child, suffer for Me. I love you so much. I give this to you in greatest love to be closer to Me.
You are My most precious child. I love you so very much. Draw yourself into the abyss of My love, draw yourself deep within My Heart. Let go, totally, let go and experience My Heart. My Mother leads you to My very precious Heart. It is through her Heart you are being placed so deeply into Mine. Let go and experience My most tender love for you. I am your precious Jesus. I love you so deeply, My beloved. Let go! Your resistance to let go is what keeps us from greater union. Totally surrender, giving you all to Me.

Be The Light That Shines In The Darkness
Jesus speaks: To be My light shining forth to this world you must come and take refuge in My most Sacred Heart. I came as a little Child into your midst. The star shone bright above Me and I entered into this world. I am He Who lights the dark night. You will cast this light to this world if you are fixed in Me. Be the light that shines in the darkness. I am the Light of this world. You are My little lights that shine so deeply into the darkness. My Heart is a burning flame. When you take refuge in My Heart you are a light to the dark world. Come and dwell deeply in My most Sacred Heart, placed there by My most dear Mother.
Be as you are called by the Father, to shine forth to this world. I am He Who calls you now to go forth and light up this world with the fire of My most Sacred Heart. The love of the one, triune God, is that which powers you. If you are in the state of grace, Our life is so alive in you. You will radiate Our love to this world. My flame of love never falters. Take shelter from every affliction in My Sacred Heart.
I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I want to light this world with My love. Let Me shine and operate from you. Pray My Prayer for Union with Me. Offer yourself totally to the Father with Me in the Holy Spirit at every Mass. Stand under the cross with Mary and give yourself in total surrender to the Father. He has such plans for you. He loves you so much. You are the light that shines in the darkness. Let your light shine and they will see the God Who dwells in your breast. You are so loved, My most precious child. I am Jesus, My Heart is aglow for love of you.

Mary With All Her Memories
Messenger: The connection between Mary and Jesus is so strong. To understand Jesus' life, I can see it much clearer through Mary. She raised Him from a Baby and showed Him her gentle ways. She guided Him in all the ways a mother guides her child.
Mary and Jesus are so closely united. She held Him as a Baby, she saw Him all through His Life and suffered so when she received His lifeless Body under the cross. She knew that He was dead. What an experience to feel the Life gone from His Body! They locked Him in the tomb and she stayed close by, not wanting to leave Him.
Now, Mary with all her memories, all her love, in her most tender Heart that lived all the moments of Jesus' life, beholds Him alive after the Resurrection! Such joy for her to see her most beloved Son in such splendor and life!
Jesus is Life. Once again, Mary through her tender Heart, the Heart that lived His Life with Him, the Heart overjoyed while she felt Him grow in her body, the Heart that held Him as a Child, that peered into the Baby eyes of the Son of God, the Heart that was torn in her chest by the seven sorrows of her life, now beholds Jesus, truly alive and full of such brilliance!
Oh, Mary, let us experience Jesus through your Heart. His joys, His sufferings. Let us know your Son more. Help us to love Him through your Heart, to see Him through your eyes. From the first moment of conception until He ascended into heaven, let us experience Jesus through your Heart. As the Child Jesus was formed in your womb, as you guided His little Life through your gentleness and love, guide us to be more and more like your Son.
September 10, 1994
He Gave That You Might Live
Mary speaks: Oh, my beloved children, if you could see what I saw. If you could see my Son's Life. You can experience His Life in your heart. Pray to be led by the Spirit to know and love God more. I am your loving Mother. Through my Heart I lead you to the Heart of my dearest Son. The Spirit will give you His gifts to lead you closer and closer to the love of God. It is through Jesus you are led to the Father. I am your Mother and I forever take you to the gentle Heart of my Son.
My Son loves you so much. I saw my Son born. I saw Him die and I saw Him rise for your life eternal. Do not throw away this great gift, the gift of Himself. He gave that you might live.
It is in your commitment to my Son, it is in your love and service to Him that you will inherit the Kingdom prepared for you.
I saw Him as a Baby, I watched Him as a Child and I saw Him suffer so for love of you. He gave His Life that you would have life.
September 10, 1994
Messenger: It is through Mary's Heart I know the Heart of Jesus more. She carried Him in her womb. She took Him to the temple. She fled with Him into Egypt. She lost Him for a brief time. She cared for Him all through His young Life. She watched Him heal the sick and preach the love of God. She watched the gentle ways of God. She knew His joy and suffering. She knew His Heart. She walked next to Him on Calvary and peered into His eyes. She stood under His cross and watched Him die. She held His lifeless Body. She cried outside of His tomb and she saw His beautiful Body after the Resurrection. She saw Him ascend into heaven.
How well does the Heart of Mary know and love the Heart of Jesus! She is closer to Him than is any other human person. The Father and Holy Spirit are one with Him. It is through this knowing of His most tender Heart that she wants to place us so tenderly into Jesus' Heart. She, who knows His Heart so well, she who is without sin., she who is close to Him, she who loved Jesus and knew Him so dearly, she is the way to reach the deepest part of His Heart. She is the door to Jesus. It is through her Heart that I am most closely united in deepest love with my Jesus.
Mary knows the Father's love. It was He Who created her sinless and chose her to be the Mother of His Son. She knew well the love of her Spouse, the Holy Spirit. She was filled with the Holy Spirit when Jesus was conceived. She was filled with the Holy Spirit at Elizabeth's house. She was filled all through her life. She was filled on Pentecost. She knew the love of the Holy Spirit. She is the human person closest to God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. It is through her most knowing and loving Heart that we will reach the deepest intimacy with God.
Prayer: Mary, through your Immaculate Heart, place us in the deepest part of Jesus' Heart so we can more deeply love Him. It is through your Heart and Jesus' Heart we want to have a deeper union with the Father.
Dear Holy Spirit, impart to us Your gifts to lead us to such love, to union with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Lead us in Your ways to know God and love Him more fully. Give us all Your seven gifts: Wisdom, Knowledge, Piety, Fear of the Lord, Understanding, Fortitude, Counsel. Lead us to greater union with God. Impart to us the fire of Your love. Where we were once blind, let us see. Fill us with Your love, Oh, Holy Spirit, through Mary's Immaculate Heart, we pray. Amen.

Messenger: Early September here is some of my experiences.
On September 3, 1994 - First Saturday
Messenger: That afternoon we came for the 6:30 p.m. prayers where Our Lady would appear. At 6:00 p.m. I went to the tabernacle in the Rosary Chapel and there was this picture of Jesus to the left of the tabernacle and a candle with the Sacred Heart of Jesus on it. There was sunlight in the room from the rosary windows. I sat before the tabernacle on the altar as I had done so many times, before the picture and left of the tabernacle. I began to experience the deepest agony of His Heart. I knew the sorrow of His Heart for all who do not come before Him in the Blessed Sacrament. I knew His sorrow so deep within me for all the blocks I had experienced in delivering the messages. I was so weakened and I was suffering. Then the lights in the room dimmed and the picture of the Sacred Heart turned black before me. I could very faintly see His outline behind the blackness. The candle of the Sacred Heart went out. I sat on the end of my chair in pain and suffering and a fear shot through me. I wondered what had happened. It remained this way for about 5 minutes.
Then the light in the room returned, the candle went on and the picture became bright, all instantaneously, brighter than ever before. I went to the back of the chapel where Mary would appear, to do the 6:30 p.m. prayers and I cried. I was so shaken from the experience. Father Carter was there for the prayers. I was told to tell Father Smith, which I did.

Messenger: It was exciting then to see My Mother every
day and receive such gifts.
It was such a comfort to have Fr. Carter
there when these things happened.
I felt deeply those times God acted
on my soul, such sufferings and joys and I
was guided by Fr. Carter to understand
more the depth of these experiences and
what gifts they were.
I don't usually remember dreams, but
I never forgot the one where I was there
and on September 5, 1994 it was as if I walked into
Fr. Carter's head and our heads were one.
This was a great sign to him and to me, for
our works merged like this.
The gentleness and emotion of the
Person of Jesus revealed to me in the
mystical experiences merged with the
gentle heart of Fr. Carter and the theological
background in the writings in the
He always said, the Priestly Newsletter
Book II was our book. I told him the
experiences I had, Jesus directed him
what to write, where to find the sources
and the theology of a doctor Jesuit

That dream of September 5, 1994 was what
happened in the writings. It may sound
so intimate, but that is not the way to
describe it - it was a formation of
oneness in mind and heart to help
lead the Church in the direction that
Jesus wished to take them.
My people, the Church is Mother.
The Church must help to bring forth
the children of the light.
The children are to be sensitive,

hearts that care.

Jesus told me over and over again
to get the Blue Book II translated in Spanish
with the imprimatur. This began in
1995. Pray for this.
The Priestly Newsletter Book II is
mostly translated in Spanish. Fr. Carter
worked very hard for this, He mailed
the Priestly Newsletters published to
many Spanish priests. Fr. Carter
wanted us to circulate the
Priestly Newsletter Book II in Spanish
to the Bishops and Priests. Jesus wants
this to go to some special Spanish
Speaking Bishops, please pray for this
and pray for the Texas people
that they will be able to print, Jesus asked
me to ask you this beginning today.
Please pray for Fernando who
translated the Mass Book, Parents and
Children's Book, Coloring Books, most
of the Blue Books in process, all
prayers, home consecration and Fernando
received the imprimatur from the Bishops on most of
these. Pray for him and his mom
that helped him with all this. She
has very good Spanish.
Jesus speaks: I wish this Spanish material
tapes etc. to circulate.
