God's Blue Book V


November 16, 1994 - After Communion

“I Give You Myself”

Messenger: I realized His immense presence after Communion. He is truly present and within me. I had a vision in my heart of Him on the cross and realized this is the same Jesus within me!

    I heard Him say, louder and firmer than ever before, "I give you Myself" – to the point that I gasped.

    I started with this vision in my heart before I received Him and started to cry. It is hard to explain what it is like to have such a realization that He is the same Jesus.

    I knew it was the Person that died on the cross and gave His very flesh for me.

    I saw Him in all His suffering on the cross. I wanted to cry, seeing Him suffering so.

    I realized He is in me and present in the Eucharist, the same God who loved me to His death. It is overwhelming. I cannot express the emotion.

 (There was a strong smell of lilacs)

    I realized that all I want is perfect union with Him. I cried to want it to last and be as intense as is possible. Nothing else mattered to me, but Him!


October 11, 1994

Surrender to Me

Jesus: I call you to love. I call you to love as I have loved. To grow in the life I have given you, you must be open to receive My grace and you must comply with the will of the Father.

    I pour out to you such gifts of My love. I want to share My life with you. I love you so dearly. Each one of you here is so precious to Me.

    Know that I never leave you. satan will constantly tell you that what you feel when you are close to Me is not so. What you feel, this drawing to be ever closer to Me, is real!

    I am Jesus, your Savor. I truly died for you. I would die for you this very day. I gave My flesh! I gave My Blood! I give Myself to you - no less present this day as the day I died on the cross.

    I am Jesus. I am your Savior. I am in your midst this very day. I come to you and ask you to trust in Me. I ask you to surrender yourselves entirely. Surrender yourselves entirely to the Father at every Mass. Offer yourselves with My precious Body and Blood to the Father.

    My song, A Song From Jesus was given 4 days before this message.

Song: A Song From Jesus

Messenger: Hold not back. He loves you so much. He created you. He molded each of you as a special work of art into the beautiful creation you each are. There is not another person like you. There is not another person that can love God as you do. There is not another person that can give to this world what He created you to do. If you hold back yourself, your love from Him and this world, the world will suffer from the loss of your gifts.

Jesus: You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill will shine with the light of God's love through you. You will reflect the love of My burning Heart from your being.

Song: Let your light shine for all the world to see. All will see the good you do and give your Father praise.


Saturday - October 29, 1994 2:15 a.m.

My Beloved Priests

Messenger: I scarce can breathe when You come into me, Lord. Help me to be drawn into a closer union with You, to let go of the perishable things of this world and be only as You want me to be, Lord. I am so weak and attached to many things. I want to please You and do Your will.

"I come to you with greatest love. I am your loving Savior. Reach out to Me and do not fear, I love you tenderly."

    Oh, the ways of the heart, Lord. How You suffered so in the garden for all Your beloved ones that You loved so greatly and who treated You with such coldness. To be perfect love and be rejected by so many beloved souls, what agony You endured! I want to console Your Most precious Heart and tell You how I love You. Oh, Jesus, You are so sweet to me. Who am I that You care for me and come to me and live in me?

Jesus: I give to priests the power to forgive sins - many take this so lightly. I give them this power - do they thank Me for My great gifts to them? Such power I give - to change bread and wine into My precious Body and Blood, everyday at Mass. Such a gift from My Most loving Heart. From the Father, in the Spirit, such a gift and how many even think of how I favor them with this gift?

    I am Jesus Christ, their beloved Savior. My special anointed ones do not know how it offends My Heart to be neglected by them. They are given such power and they do not even come and be with Me. Such love I have for them! Agonies of the heart, such agonies to love so dearly, to give so much and be rejected by My anointed ones! Oh, if they only came to Me, I would shower them with such love for their hearts and souls.

    I am your special love. I come to you and give you Myself, no less present than the day I walked the earth, and who comes and spends time with Me? I am your beloved Savior. I gave My life for you, My beloved priests. I give you such gifts from the Father, in the Spirit, and you take God's gifts so lightly. How I suffered for your neglect and indifference.

    Oh, beloved children of My Father, do you know this love I have for you? I come and give you Myself this very day and you treat Me so very coldly. Come to My Heart in the Blessed Sacrament and be with Me. Come and spend time in your home, alone with Me. Come from your sleep and be with Me.

    Such sweet moments - our time together in the night! Do you remember My dear love I poured out to you in these most sacred hours? I want you to come, Rita, and be with Me. Such special moments with Me, your beloved One. I am forever with you with such love. I pour Myself out to you in the night. Come and be alone with Me in our Hearts. I love you so much. Nothing sustains the aching soul but My love. I long for you to come and be alone with Me. In the night you are totally attentive to Me. Come to Me and be with Me. Comfort My aching Heart. No one knows how My Heart suffered for love of My beloved ones. I am so neglected and forgotten. You see what makes you sad, the hours I sit alone in the tabernacle and no one comes, the way people are too busy to even think of Me. My holiest ones who have turned My Mass into such coldness and I, Who love with such fervent love, love their most cold hearts. Cold hearts surround Me. I remain with greatest love for you, My beloved souls, and who comes and gives Me a heart of real love? Very few hearts come and pour their love out to Me. I long for this, your love. I long for your time with Me. Console My aching Heart, My child. Come and give Me your deepest love. I want your love as I say in the song. I want you to come with such love you scarce can breathe.

    Rita, Rita, do you know yet I speak to you? You are such a cold heart. I speak to you and you are ready to run back to your world for your love. I want to be so close to you. You do not comprehend what is transpiring here, My beloved one. I pour out such love to you and you are this little frightened child out in the rain looking for that which only I can give you. Come out of the rain and into My Heart. Totally surrender and let your life unfold as I make Myself known more and more to you. I want to take you to the inner sanctuaries of My Heart. I want you to dwell there in such union. You keep yourself at a distance from Me.

    Your world is not the answer. My Heart is your answer. Let go, let go, let go. Be so wrapped in My love. You stand on the outskirts, looking in. I give you My grace. With Me, you are not alone. I never ever leave you. Be attentive at every second to My most intimate presence within you. You offend My Heart. You, whom I talk to, you doubt and run to others for what I want to give you. My child, I love you so much. Do you hear Me? Don’t check out My story here any more. Be lost in My deepest love. I give this to you. Come and dwell deeply in My Heart through Mary’s Heart. It is in this dwelling that your peace lies. Say the prayer for union with Me.

Song: Your Presence Pervades My Soul

Feast of the Holy Family


Sorrowful Mysteries 


The Agony in the Garden

1. Jesus' greatest agony all through His passion, were the agonies He felt to His most Sacred Heart because He loves each one of us all so dearly.

2. Put yourself in the Garden and hear the sounds of the night. See Jesus there. Jesus sees before Him all of the sufferings that He will undergo His whole entire Passion, and with greatest love He complies to the will of the Father to go through this suffering for great love of each of us.

3. He loves each soul with the most tender love; and He saw before Him all the souls that He loved so dearly that would be condemned to eternal damnation forever.

4. He saw before Him all the men from all time and all the sins that they would commit despite His grace and His great love that He outpours to them from His Most Sacred Heart.

5. Jesus is Love. He has the tenderest Heart and He loves each soul so dearly. And to be neglected and treated so indifferently, how it wounded His Most Sacred Heart; and He suffered this agony so greatly in the garden.

6. He suffered so for the indifference shown to Him around the Sacrament of the Eucharist where He is truly present in His Divinity and humanity. Jesus gives Himself to souls and they neglect Him; some do not even talk to Him.

7. His agony was so great that His sweat became as great drops of blood.

8. Jesus:  I sweat Blood for My Beloved souls.

9. Jesus:  I love you so much.

10. Sing song: Come unto Me all who are weary




The Scourging at the Pillar

1. Jesus suffered so much agony to His Heart because Judas, whom He loved so dearly, Judas betrayed Jesus with a kiss.

2. They tied Jesus to the pillar.

3. Be there at the pillar with Jesus and hear the blows that He received to His most precious back. Hear the sounds as the angry men with such hatred in their hearts, such anger, beat Jesus to their own exhaustion.

4. Jesus' once unblemished back was an open wound from the anger and hatred that these men beat Him as they did.

5. From His head to His feet, Jesus was beaten so badly. Jesus, who is the Son of God, who is Love, who comes to us with the greatest love and asks us to love God and to love one another was beaten by those He loved so much.

6. His greatest agony was not His wounds to His Body or the blood that ran down His body; but His greatest agony was for the cold hearts that will not open their hearts to the love that He pours out to them this day. He calls out to us to come to the love of God.

7. He remains in the Eucharist, no less present than the day they scourged Him at the pillar; and He wants us to come and to be so close to Him so He can give us such love. 

8. Jesus loves us no less than the day they beat Him for our sins. Jesus would die for us this day.

9. He is in the tabernacle. Jesus is waiting for us. Jesus loves us always — in joy and suffering. Jesus will never abandon us; Jesus is forever by our side. Jesus wants us to come to Him always.

10. Jesus:  Oh, you cold hearts! Do you not listen to My call to you to open up your heart and to let Me in? I suffered so much agony. Meditate on My passion. Open up your heart this evening. Let me speak to you in your heart. It is there that your peace and love and your joy lies. I am Jesus, your Beloved Savior. I wait for you; I long for you. I want to share My love with you; the love that I have for you this day. Open your heart to My Love. Let Me penetrate your being with My love; and the joy that you will have is a joy that nothing on this earth can give to you. It is My Divine Love, My Divine Life that I give to you this day. Open your heart and let Me in.




The Crowning of Thorns

1. They wove for Jesus a sharp crown of piercing thorns and they pounded it into His Most Precious Head.

2. They clothed Him with a dirty purple robe and gave Him a scepter to hold and mocked Him as a King.

3. They spit on Him and mocked Him. 

4. This is Jesus Christ, the Son of God; and He comes to us with the great love that He has. And He asks us to be there and watch as they crown Him with thorns. He would withstand this torture for us this day. This is the love that He has: that He gave His blood; that He gave His flesh; that He gave His all. And He calls out to us to please open our hearts to the love that He has for us.

5. As He suffered so for all the sins of all men, He was comforted by the acts of love that we give to Him this very day: the time that we spend with Him after the Eucharist and the time that we spend with Him in front of the Tabernacle.

6. Jesus loves us so much He withstood this beating for love of us.

7. Jesus suffered for our sins.

8. Jesus wants us to love Him today.

9. Jesus wants a personal love relationship with Him.

10. Jesus is our spouse — the bridegroom of our soul.




Jesus Carries His Cross

1. See the men as they stand around Jesus. With a lance they poke at him. See Jesus, His face always at total peace because He knew the Father's love. His hands were tied. He stood there, Jesus, who is all loving; and they condemn Him to death on the cross.

2. Jesus remained at peace through all the torture that He withstood because He knew the Father's love. The Father loves each one of us so much. The Father created each one of us uniquely special. There is not another person that is quite like us. The Father has a plan for each one of us and He wants us to be happy and to live this plan.

3. They gave to Jesus a heavy cross that they put on His shoulder; and His shoulder felt as if it would break through to the ground.

4. Jesus' eyes met the eyes of His loving Mother. Mary, who raised Jesus as a little baby, who carried Him in her womb, who stood by Him all through His life, and now walks by Jesus on Calvary and her eyes met His. There is such intimacy between Jesus and His Mother. Such love between His Heart and her heart. And it is the love that They have in Their Hearts that They want to give to us this very day.

5. As Mary walked by Jesus' side, she walks by our side this very day. She never abandons us. She withstood all of His suffering on Calvary; and God will give us the grace to withstand our trials if we pray for it this day. And Mary walks by our side as she walked by the side of Jesus, her Son, on Calvary.

6. Song:  Lord, let me walk that lonesome road with you under the weight of the wood. Lord, let me walk that last mile in your shoes, under the weight of the wood.

7. Jesus:  Carry your crosses today and love Me. Tell the world to carry the little crosses I give them and to pray for grace for the priests, the Church and the world. 

8. Song:  See the Eyes that look at Mary

9. Song:  A Song From Jesus

10.  Song:  I Love You Jesus





Jesus is Crucified and Dies on the Cross

1. See Mary as she held Jesus, His little baby hands and feet; and see her as she stands by as they nail His precious hands and feet to the cross.

2. Song:  Little Baby Hands and Feet

3. Mary cries out this day; Mary has come as Our Lady of Light to tell us to turn our lives back to the love of her Son. It is there that our peace and our joy lie.

4. He gave His flesh; He gave His blood; He gave the last beat of His Heart; and He asks us for two things; He asks us to love God and to love one another.

5. Jesus loved those who persecuted Him; Jesus loved those who crucified Him. 

6. As Jesus gave Himself, His arms outstretched and gave His all for love of us, He asks us today to come to the Eucharist. Jesus gives Himself to us there. Jesus gave Himself to us when He died on the cross. And He waits for us with such love that only He can give to us.

7. He hung for three agonizing hours on the cross and His last thoughts were for us; and He gave His Mother. As Mary mothered Jesus, she mothers each and everyone of us.

8. Mary, open our hearts to the love of your Precious Son. It is through your Most Immaculate Heart, your heart that knew Him, that we will be led to closer union with Jesus who loves us so much.

9. As she held Him in her arms as a baby, she now receives His lifeless body in her arms under the cross.

Battered, bruised and bloody, He has not a breath in His body. He gave His all because He loves us so much. Jesus calls us to love God and love of one another.

10.   Jesus:  I AM JESUS, THE SON OF GOD AND I LOVE YOU SO MUCH — I DIED FOR YOU AND I remain with you today, truly present in the Eucharist.


Jesus appeared in magnificent light as the Sacred Heart. Jesus illuminated brightly throughout the entire rosary and throughout the entire talk.

This rosary was prayed at the home of a friend of Rita's. There were about 20 people present. Marty led the rosary. Rita gave a witness/talk and sang some of the songs she received from Jesus.
