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.

Given December 19, 1999

Messenger: I prayed that I could identify more with His love for souls, to understand more the sufferings of Jesus’ Heart and Mary’s Heart for the loss of them.

I am consumed with love for souls, especially the young, for they are without learning and being trained now, and I am sorrowing, for they are being trained as this world is, not as He wishes. I am sorrowing for the lack of truth and realization that this is serious and we must do as God wishes.

My sorrow is coupled with my trust which I wish to grow more and more. Trust in His Sacred Heart. For having experienced this sorrow for souls and the conditions of the world and how we are offending Him by our ways, I feel utterly close to Him and closer than ever to the souls He loves so much and He died for.

Mary speaks: My heart, my children, to watch the children that give in to the world and give up their souls. Oh I cry to you, my Son shed His Blood for them. He sweat His Blood in the garden. Today if He appeared to you, you would see a man with Blood in His eyes. Oh my children, Blood and He shed it. Now today, you will not turn your wills to God, you run after evil things. Oh my children, oh my children, oh my children, I am sorrowing, you suffer some of the anguish I felt for souls. Oh my children, I suffer. Be kind. Live to help save souls. You are a body. If you wish to be led home, come to my Immaculate Heart. Oh children, help me. I CRY!

Jesus speaks: I am consumed for love of souls.

My Mother cries for the youth.

Her tears on the 17th flooded the earth.

Her tears are tears for the youth.

Oh the children.

I am consumed with love for souls.

If you want to please Me this Christmas, pray for them.

Oh, I am consumed with love for souls.

Pray, oh pray from your hearts, beg for forgiveness and mercy as a people.

Beg the Father for forgiveness, you have offended your God.

Oh, Father, Son and Holy Spirit love you.

Oh, I am consumed with love for souls.

Identify with Me in My suffering.

I sweat Blood in the garden.

Oh, I am consumed with love for souls.

Messenger: On December 19, 1996, I received the following message.

Message of December 19, 1996 (from Mary Image Card)

Mary speaks: My dear children, I give to you my Son Jesus, born in a stable in Bethlehem on Christmas morn. He is the Almighty God, the Light of the World.

I appear to you, my children, on a (former) bank in Florida. You have made money your god! Do you know how cold are your hearts? You turn away from my Son, Jesus, for your money. Your money is your god.

I am Mary, your Mother. I do not appear as I once appeared to you. I am asking you today to circulate my message given on a tape on the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, December 12, 1996. Please circulate this tape now. Give it to as many people as you can. I am Mary, your Mother. Please circulate my Rosary Book.

Messenger: On December 20, 1993, I was awakened early in the morning with knocking (I believe on the door). It was strong knocking, and there were lights in the room. I heard, "Angels will read the message", over and over again. I heard "Angels will read the message." Whenever Jesus woke me early in the night, He was filled with emotion and I knew I should jump from my bed to receive the message. I was summoned quickly from the bed, and I ran to the study downstairs where I receive the messages. I will never forget this message or this experience, for it was so strong. I could not sleep afterward, I was up all night. When I delivered it the next morning, they acted like it was no big deal and were afraid to publish it as the Lord requested, because they said it was too strong.

This message is a most important message to Our Lord. He referred to it often, and wanted it put in the Apostles’ Manual.

Please read it with all seriousness. It is important.

Picture of the Sacred Heart of JesusAngels Will Read the Message

God's Blue Book I CoverDecember 20, 1993 - 2:40 a.m.

Jesus speaks: Who will read the message? Angels will read the message. I will be by their side. I want the messages out. I want them out, I tell you. I want My people to hear all I am telling you. I want, not a few, but all to hear these words. They are private revelations given by Me to My people. The souls are, oh, so hungry for this one. They need to get these messages.

I am one crying in the desert. Make ready the way of the Lord. Prepare ye a path for the Master. He comes as a child in a stable. His people are asleep. Where are they and what are they doing with their busy lives? The angels will read the messages. They will rock the heavens and all will know My love and My might. From the housetops, shout this. Proclaim, "The day of the Lord is approaching. Make ready a path for Him." Will you comply with this demand to deliver a message to My people?

Time, child, is so short. You must ready all with My words of love. They are half asleep and dazed. They walk this earth with blinders on their eyes. My day will rock them off their rockers and they will know it is I with Whom they deal. No mistake will be made as to what is happening. All will see My power and My might. From the heavens shall come a sign and all will know from whence it comes. And the days that follow will be days to prepare men's hearts for My coming. I will not come unannounced. I will come with My power and My might and you will know what you will behold. Men will turn their hearts to Me with these messages. Get them out, I tell you, for their need is very great. I am patient and yet I am demanding. Ready yourself for this day of the Lord. I come as a baby into your midst, the angels sing, the choirs of heaven rejoice and you will know soon that I am very close to you all. Indeed you will know!

What awaits those in their feeble hearts! They run after such useless things when I, God, am talking in these letters. They think their world is their end. What an awakening they will have-a wide awakening!

I knock to make ready for My coming. You hear Me knock on your door in the night. Make ready this path so My people will read these letters of love. I am mighty and worthy of such praise. My people must realize My love in My intense might. What sign do you need? Do you think these messages were for your ears alone? Such power and wisdom in Rita's purse? This is not the idea. They are for all! My ease goes with you in all your undertakings to get these messages out.

Slow, too slow, I tell you. Shout My message from the housetops, that I am Lord and I am coming in your midst as a baby, but, with such might! My time is at hand. You tarry too long, My little ones. Time you do not have. This world is crazy! People are so busy at the malls. Oh, what foolish ones. I come as a baby into your midst. This is My birthday and whom do you worship? You worship idols! It is all such a sick world. Make ready My path, My little ones. Time is so short and you must not tarry any longer for into your hands I place My words for the world. They are mighty, little ones. Read them! What do you do with these words? Do you want proof? Look at Me hanging on the cross. It is out of this love of you I died a brutal death! Do you think I would not go to this extent to save the souls of My loved ones? Why would I come to this earth, give My life for all My beautiful creatures, and then, at this stage of the game, not send some mighty medicine to cure My sick little ones? You possess the mighty medicine. I mixed it with such love and I hand-deliver each message to shake My people to My love. The heavens will rock and the Son of Man will appear on a cloud and the glory of the Lord will be shown on high!

Get busy, you little people. The angels declare My words are given here. This is My gift to My people-distinct, clear letters proclaiming My love. Are you listening? Do you think I would not try everything to save My beloved ones?

Oh, I will go to any extent to save these little ones, so ornery and so stupid in their ways, so sinful in this evil world, but so precious to Me. I will come in My glory and I want every last soul.

I am God. Why would I not speak to you? I wait for you. I wait, I wait, but you are all so blind and dense. What you do is so silly. Your ways here have become sick and your hearts have become hard. But shout it from the housetops! I loved you to My death! I love you all in your sickness. I want you united under the mantle of My mother, praying and honoring God.

America, turn yourselves around before it is too late. Come and heed My harkening. Come, come, My children. Time is so short and a lot of mending must be done in your hearts. You have hardened them and now they must come back to life. Only I can give you this life in your hearts.

Heed My words here. I am gentle and kind in heart. My heart is a heart of love. I have hand-delivered these messages to My people and you are My delivery boys. Get them going, little ones. You tarry too much.

My gift to My people is My love this Christmas. I am showering all at this Center with grace this season. The devotion there pleases Me, but more must flock and they will be changed from hardened hearts to hearts for God. I am God, little ones. I came and I died a brutal death. I am calling to you all to deliver this now. Make this your top priority so they will hear My message of love and know the love I have for them. Do not tarry. Do this today, little ones.

Nursing Home Message - December 20, 1999 - Second Message

Picture of the Sacred Heart of JesusYou Are Special (excerpt)

God's Blue Book I CoverNovember 28, 1993 4:30a.m.

Jesus speaks: But God can love you, only as God can, in a divine way. God's love never falters. It never changes. It is not good today and not so good tomorrow. It is the same as the day He chose to be born and die for love of you!

Oh you, so precious of the Father, out of love of the Holy Spirit, I was born to give you life, life eternal, life forever. Why would you go to a human and ask, "How am I doing? Was I good today?" Go to God. Ask and you shall receive, knock and it shall be opened unto you, seek and you shall find. My love is endless, unbounded. I proved your worth and value by My birth, death and resurrection. Do you need more than this to convince yourself of your value? Oh, little ones, come and forget yourselves. You need not ever try to measure your worth again. Come and be alive in Me. Love Me. Be busy about this task. Forget yourself. Your value has been proven by Me. Be busy about your union with Me. Forget your unworthiness, your recognition. Forget yourself. Die to yourself that you may truly live.

Go about being aware of My love for you. Dwell on how I, God, want to be close and united to you. Forget your lowliness, focus on My love. Your value was and is established by My love. Your job is to concentrate on this love.

Messenger: When visiting a nursing home this is a plan you can follow to pray a little part of the rosary with the elderly or sick residents.

What is usually done and tolerated by the elderly folks is one Our Father, five Hail Mary's and another Our Father. The song, A Song from Jesus, can be sung before and after these prayers.

It is desirable to have a big picture of The Agony in the Garden when doing these meditations. Also it is recommended that you have pictures of the Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Excerpt from January 26, 1995, The Agony in the Garden from Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary

The Agony in the Garden

  1. Messenger: Be with Jesus as He kneels in the Garden of Gethsemane.
  2. With greatest love for each one of us, the Father sent into this world His only-begotten Son.
  3. Jesus took on a human nature with greatest love for each one of us. He now kneels in the Garden, His Heart in such anguish. He who is Love sees before Him all the souls from all time who would neglect Him and treat Him so indifferently despite all His suffering and love that His most tender Heart has for each and every soul.
  4. Jesus remains with us this very day, the same as the day that He knelt in the Garden. He remains with us in His divinity and humanity. With greatest love for each one of us He longs, He thirsts, He waits for us to come and be with Him...
  5. God, grant to us the grace to know and to love You more so that we can more fully realize that You truly are God-made-man in Jesus Christ, that You come to this earth in greatest love for each one of us, that You long and wait for our love and that You want to give us Your love.

Question for married couples and others in intimate relationships:
