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: Dear children,

On this day August 5, 2000, I write to you. I have requested the following messages be given at all three centers as you unite in prayer at 6:20. It is the desire of my Son Jesus and my desire that the messages for this date be given to the people. I am Our Lady of the Mountains, my Heart will be the way you will help fight the devil. You must come through my Immaculate Heart and dwell in the Heart of my Son Jesus.

My children, in my three gardens, you are bringing forth fruit for the kingdom. Do not be afraid, you must pray fervently as I have instructed, you must reach the old and the young with the prayer:

Mary speaks: I am Our Lady of the Mountains. My Son Jesus took them to the high mountain and they saw Him transfigured before them. 

Mark 9: 2-10

The Transfiguration

Six days later, Jesus took with him Peter and James and John and led them up a high mountain on their own by themselves. There in their presence he was transfigured: his clothes became brilliantly white, whiter than any earthly bleacher could make them. Elijah appeared to them with Moses; and they were talking to Jesus. Then Peter spoke to Jesus, ‘Rabbi,’ he said, ‘it is wonderful for us to be here; so let us make three shelters, one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.’ He did not know what to say; they were so frightened. And a cloud came, covering them in shadow; and from the cloud there came a voice, ‘This is my Son, the Beloved. Listen to him.’ Then suddenly, when they looked round, they saw no one with them any more but only Jesus.

The question about Elijah

As they were coming down from the mountain he warned them to tell no one what they had seen, until after the Son of man had risen from the dead. They observed the warning faithfully, though among themselves they discussed what ‘rising from the dead’ could mean.

Mary speaks: You must realize that God is real, the Eucharist is real, the Son of God gives Himself to you.

Mary speaks: I am Our Lady of the Mountains, please my children, you must pray for your priests. It is through their hands you receive the Body and Blood of my Son. Oh, my children, do you know how it would be to not have the availability of priests you now have saying Holy mass? Oh my children, God gives you this gift and you do not cherish it. Oh my children, Jesus is the Light of the World.


 Mary speaks: I call you to China, Indiana, August 13, 2000, this will make great reparation to my Son's Heart for all the offenses against God. At Fatima I was not permitted on August 13, 1917 to do as I so desired because of men blocking the plan of God, so I appeared on August 19, 1917. I wish you to make reparation to Our Hearts on August 13, 2000, from my church in China, Indiana, my Son's Eucharistic Center. Do not question my ways and the ways of my Son.

When you were blocked in your mission when I appeared daily, I gave to you a great gift that the Father permitted. He permitted me to appear permanently on the building in Clearwater, Florida. This is a sign from your God of the authenticity of my Son's mission, the Shepherds of Christ. I beg you to listen to Him. How can you deny this sign?

Matthew 14: 1-12

At that time Herod the tetrarch heard about the reputation of Jesus and said to his court, ‘This is John the Baptist himself; he has risen from the dead, and that is why miraculous powers are at work in him.’

John the Baptist beheaded

Now it was Herod who had arrested John, chained him up and put him in prison because of Herodias, his brother Philip’s wife. For John had told him, ‘It is against the Law for you to have her.’ He had wanted to kill him but was afraid of the people, who regarded John as a prophet. Then, during the celebrations for Herod’s birthday, the daughter of Herodias danced before the company and so delighted Herod that he promised on oath to give her anything she asked. Prompted by her mother she said, ‘Give me John the Baptist’s head, here, on a dish.’ The king was distressed but, thinking of the oaths he had sworn and of his guests, he ordered it to be given her, and sent and had John beheaded in the prison. The head was brought in on a dish and given to the girl, who took it to her mother. John’s disciples came and took the body and buried it; then they went off to tell Jesus. 

Jeremiah 26: 11-16, 24

The priests and prophets then said to the chief men and all the people, ‘This man deserves to die, since he has prophesied against this city, as you have heard with your own ears.’ Jeremiah, however, replied to all the chief men and all the people as follows, ‘Yahweh himself sent me to prophesy against this Temple and this city all the things you have heard. So now amend your behaviour and actions, listen to the voice of Yahweh your God, and Yahweh will relent about the disaster that he has decreed for you. For myself, I am, as you see, in your hands. Do whatever you please or think right with me. But be sure of this, that if you put me to death, you will be bringing innocent blood on yourselves, on this city and on its inhabitants, since Yahweh has truly sent me to you to say all this for you to hear.’ The chief men and all the people then said to the priests and prophets, ‘This man does not deserve to die: he has spoken to us in the name of Yahweh our God.’

 But Jeremiah had a protector in Ahikam son of Shaphan, so he was not handed over to the people to be put to death.

Mary speaks: Oh, my children, I am Our Lady of the Mountains. Celebrate the feast of the Transfigured Lord in your hearts. Every day read the scripture and remember how I spoke to you.

The sign I have given is one in which the Father has allowed me to appear daily, all day, to be photographed and appear on T.V. channels in homes all over the world, in magazines and in all places.

I am Our Lady of the Mountains, the more you listen to me and the messages of my Son Jesus, the more your hearts will know the joy of seeing Him alive in your hearts as the transfigured Lord. He is outpouring grace to you as you pray as we have directed.

My children, what sign do you need for your weary souls?

I want you to promote my image (Clearwater, Florida) everywhere as a sign that I and my Son Jesus speak here.

I want your hearts to be lifted to the highest mountain as you unite in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, as the children of the earth worship their God.

I want my materials sold in bookstores throughout the country at a very modest price that will help cover the expenses and get my message and the message of my Son out to His flock. I want image rosaries, postcards, priestly newsletters, Rosary Books, Blue Books, the Mass Book be made available. I want first communion rosaries that are beautiful in white and black with gold links and my image be made available for little ones making their first communion.

I want my image promoted throughout the world. Oh, you think of the natural wonders, oh my children, this is a gift from God. You must all help to promote my image and the messages my Son gives through the Shepherds of Christ to go with my image. I do not wish you to use other materials promoting my image. My Son has given this image as a sign to help bring about the reign of His Sacred Heart through the revelations He has given in His Movement, Shepherds of Christ. This Movement is His to help bring about the renewal of the Church and the world. There must be absolute purity in all that accompanies my image. This is my sign to you. When I appeared at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center, they did not understand the importance of my mission and the revelations given by my Son Jesus through His Movement, Shepherds of Christ. He wants absolute purity and truth so that the world will be renewed. This is my Son's mission to help with the completion of the mission I began at Fatima in 1917. Please help me.

I ask the picture taken July 5, 2000, on the 6th anniversary of my visit July 5, 1994, at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center be placed here.

Mary speaks: I am Our Lady of Clearwater.

I appear permanently to you today.

I want these revelations given to the earth.

I wish my first Message Book distributed.


Mary speaks: I am Our Lady of the Rosary.

I want the rosary in the hands of all my children.

I want you to pray for my Rosary Factory in my image building and help support it by getting rosaries to the schools and giving rosaries to all who visit my Florida image site and giving them to missions when possible.

Help me, send me your rosaries.

Please pray the prayers as my Son Jesus has indicated at 6:20.

A Message to my children in the Junior Shepherds of Christ

Mary speaks: I wish all to gather every Sunday praying the prayers given above at 6:20. I wish Sunday to be YOUTH NIGHT. I wish all children to know I am with you.

 There are youth praying at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center at 6:20.  

Mary speaks: There are youth praying under my image in Florida.

Mary speaks: All youth should be aware that they are praying together united in their hearts.

These messages given every week should be read that night.

Children praying before the tabernacle should not read the messages inside the churches or on church properties. They can be read on public or private property after or before the meeting.

Children may wish to gather for a social as time permits.


The parents and children's book Rosary Meditations for Parents and Children should be used. 



Also coloring books are available. These can be used off of church property.



 Mary speaks: I love you so much. I am Mary, your Mother.


Children meeting in private places, before the image in Florida, not on church property, can use rosaries with messages given in the book Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.



A special rosary for youth was given July 15, 1995, this rosary can be printed for all youth.

Also the rosary March 20, 1997, (click-on coming soon) can be used.

The accounts of that vision I request be given here.


Vision as seen by Messenger, March 20, 1997
Junior Shepherds of Christ Meeting
Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center

Mary appeared as Our Lady of Fatima for one hour and l5 minutes. Mary appeared in the Sorrowful Mother statue at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center.

I was at Our Lady's House for the Junior Shepherds of Christ meeting. I cannot remember any great apparition of Mary in the Sorrowful Mother statue since August l2 and l3, l996. She appeared all night and two times on August l3, l996, once right before I went to the rosary at Tom's farm about 5:30 p.m. (the night John was there and St. Michael came out of the water). Mary comes when you least expect her.

Tonight I went to the Holy Spirit Center for the rosary with the Junior Shepherds of Christ. We could not pray in the Rosary chapel because Fr. Smith was going to say Mass. We could not pray in the Sorrowful Mother's chapel because the pews were draped with work clothes. We could not pray in the social hall because the band was playing. The only place left was in the hall on the other side of the wall from the band. The youth in the Shepherds of Christ chapter decided this was the place and moved pews in front of the statue.

As we began the rosary I began to see Mary, covered with a mist. Then I saw light around her. She got bigger than the statue, her face softened to that of the most beautiful woman--the same as the picture I took on Mother's Day l995 when she told me to buy film and take her picture. She was all adorned in light. She changed, around her head and she became a young, beautiful girl. She then changed into a lady of immense light, all white, beautiful and young. I wanted to cry in awe looking at her. I wanted to stop the rosary and just see the apparition, but I continued to speak as she spoke through me.

The whole rosary was on Our Lady of Fatima. She turned into Our Lady of Fatima, so white, so beautiful, young in her face. I have seen many statues of Our Lady of Fatima. I have seen her all white and adorned in light before--Our Lady of Light, that is what she called herself.

On October 5, l996 I saw her at Immaculata in the grotto. She had told me earlier that day she was Our Lady of the Rosary and gave a very strong message.

I do not recall seeing her in an apparition in the Sorrowful Mother's statue since August l3, l996.

She was clearly, clearly, "Our Lady of Fatima" - LIVE. I saw her. I am in awe and wanted more, it was so beautiful!

She may have appeared as Our Lady of Fatima the first time. She was covered with the greatest light - a light as from a fire and all white, but on July 5, l994 when she first appeared,

I did not know what Our Lady of Fatima looked like.

I know tonight she was like every statue I have ever seen of Our Lady of Fatima, glistening,, and all white. She had beads or embroidery around her cloak. I know she looked like the Lady of Fatima statues but LIVE.

Every time we sang A Song From Jesus she would shine with the brightest light and her face would fill with the greatest joy.

Even in a lighted hall, Mary would appear to me.

There was no place for Jesus to be born--He was born the Light of the World in a stable in Bethlehem and the brightest star shone above His bed.

This rosary on Fatima needs to circulate to the youth. Mary appeared to tell us to tell the youth this rosary. It does not have any message from Mary, only information from her for the youth.

Mary's message for the youth: a rosary on Fatima--as she appeared to deliver it.

This is a great comfort to me. She appeared, Our Lady of Fatima, to tell us that this is truly a major part of the completion of the Fatima message.

The youth told me they could not hear the rosary, only the loud music of the band. I did not hear the band at all - but was in awe with Mary's appearing and the rosary!

At one point I saw a little blond hair sticking out from under her veil at the top of her head.

At least three times I saw this immense Lady of Light turn into Our Lady of Fatima. It was as if she was transformed from the Lady of Light into the Lady of Fatima.

The room was a brightly lighted hallway with big balls of light that came down from the ceiling.

She was adorned in light, brighter than the hallway, light as bright as seven suns, the Lady of Light.

It is in her womb we see the light, the light of knowing God through the power of the Holy Spirit.

Mary speaks: Another youth rosary was given April 25, 1996 (click-on coming soon).

Rosaries with messages should not be used in churches because they have not yet been given the Imprimatur. All rosaries have been thoroughly checked by a competent theologian. The rosaries listed were thoroughly checked by this competent theologian priest.

My children, help me, gather and pray.

Sorrowful MotherMary's Message from the Rosary of August 27, 1996

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)


I _________________ give my heart to
