Messenger: There were three main visions I received on March 26, 1996, April 6, 1996, Holy Saturday and April 9, 1996.

March 26, 1996

April 6, 1996

April 9, 1996

The vision on March 26, 1996, a Tuesday, is recorded in the Apostles Manual. This date was the day I first went to the Faber House, March 26, 1994, and talked to Father Carter at length.

March 26 is Tom A's birthday and the day the Blue Book II, "The Fire of His Love" first appeared on the Internet.

On April 9, 1996, I wrote in my notebook about the visions, Our Lord wished me to record it here.

I write exactly as I recorded in the notebook at that time on April 9, 1996. Some sentences are incomplete as I wrote hastily to record the experience. I write as I am experiencing the vision.


April 9, 1996

Messenger: I went to All Saints Church - saw with eyes unveiled- such an aura of celestial light. I went to Communion, had the presence of God, wanted to cry so hard from the awe of it all. I was not feeling good and He wrapped me as only He can do in His heavenly embrace. My soul sang out and the vision began. My eyes now are still seeing with this effect. He, as it were, lifts up the hard, defined lines and I see with a celestial aura. This is what I see when I see a vision. The rocks in the grotto Mary has appeared in glisten and they are sparkling. LINES are not defined, instead they are adorned in light. Saturday (April 6, 1996, Holy Saturday) I saw the whole wall adorned in the brightest light, St. Joseph was surrounded in this thick light, like comes from a fire, like a celestial mirror. I don't know how to describe it, it is as a mirror with light in it, but no light like our human eyes have seen. I looked at St. Joseph and he was pushing the Child Jesus out at us, the Baby coming out glistening in light. The statue of the resurrected Lord was alive. All the flowers were topped with this light. This is how it was and is now at All Saints Church. It is as if heaven has poured its light on the earth and it tops the flowers. All distinct lines are gone. In their place is light. So all I look at has a splendor.

Today the vision started as the Eucharist was exposed. I knew it was coming. I had this immense presence. Then the lines began to disappear and became smudged with light.

It is the most glorious occurrence to be in the vision. I can talk and tell someone what I am seeing, but I don't want to, I just want to rest in the celestial occurrence and realize the presence of God.

He lifts the veil and I see with eyes unveiled. This is what Mary said from the Lady of Grace statue at the Holy Spirit Center before all this started. She said there would be miracles around the Eucharist. I didn't think she meant I would experience these.

When I saw her 3 times, she had this same light around her. The last time, I think it lasted an hour (March 10). She was beyond description. March 17 may be when she told me about the Eucharist. I must check my notes.


April 9, 1996

Messenger: After Communion I had this immense presence of God. I knew a vision was coming. My vision gets a certain way. The distinct lines I see before me begin to disappear and are smudged with light.

Then I saw again the celestial lights of heaven. It was as though light was spilled from heaven and landed on the flowers and the corners of everything. The Eucharist took on an immense warmth and I knew God truly present in this room.

I saw with eyes unveiled in my soul and in the room. The room had a celestial aura, it no longer looked defined and clear. It was bathed in a gentle, celestial film and all I saw I wanted to tell to those around me. But I was so caught in His embrace that my mouth did not want to move.

Grace is being spilled on the earth. I have seen this celestial light come upon the altar of sacrifice, the monstrance and the cross. The vision on March 26 (1996) I will never forget as long as I live. The light is so thick and so intense as if the heavens open in these cracks of light and there is a depth far beyond that which any mind can envision.

The sky opened up and it rained down its grace. It opens when hearts are one in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

Per March 26

Messenger: I had the vision of: on March 26, 1996.

Jesus speaks: I am Jesus. I have spoken as never before, you will spread My love to all souls on this earth.

Messenger: When I received this message and saw the vision on March 26, the bells tolled at 8:00 a.m. and at 9:00 a.m.

Picture of Jesus' Heart on fire.

The vision of Jesus' Heart on fire I had in the same pew at All Saints Church, December 17, 1991. The heart that is on the 2nd Blue Book. The first vision March 26, 1996, I had in the same pew on the other end of the pew toward the center aisle, the first pew on the right side of the church as I faced the altar.

On April 3,1996, at All Saints Church I wrote:

I was at All Saints, April 3, at the 6:45 a.m. Mass. At 7:00 a.m. the bells rang at the Consecration of the Mass. The Sacrifice of Calvary rings out all over the world and I can be joined at every moment to this Sacrifice. We unite to this Sacrifice praying for ourselves and our brothers. The bell tolls at every moment I live. Whether I am doing dishes, being with my family, or whatever, I make this my offering united to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass being offered around the world. I make my Morning Offering. United to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass being celebrated around the world, I give myself completely to the Father in the name of Jesus in the Holy Spirit with all the angels and saints. I make this offering of my life to help in the salvation of souls. My offering is most pure and holy as I unite to the pure and holy Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

What is pleasing to my Father is that at every second I am trying to live in His will operating in love. My heroic or mundane tasks are most important as I give them in sacrifice united to Jesus in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.

I live in this way, always united to the sacrifice of Calvary being made sacramentally present on our altars around the world through the hands of His beloved priests.

This is the moment of sacrifice. The bells toll all over the earth and Christ, Chief-Priest and Victim, gives Himself in the Mass through the hands of the priest. I give myself in love to help in the work of redemption.

Jesus speaks: It is most difficult to present any description similar to the original mystical vision. The sketches provide a basis for reference. Nothing in words or pictures even comes close to the original experience. I wish these writings and sketches to appear that you will more fully experience my love through these revelations. Pictures are concrete descriptions of true realities. The sketches provided are more to My liking, employing the element of mystery, for nothing here on this earth will ever show even minutely the splendor of a genuine mystical vision. In expressing the visions in concrete pictures, the element of mystery is overshadowed. You must pray for grace to experience that element of mystery in these writings, knowing the infinitude of the mystery of God can never be expressed concretely through words and pictures. It is through grace that one experiences that which I reveal here.

Messenger: God is the ultimate mystery and He reveals Himself to man as He so chooses. Man must be open, soft and supple, ready for His touch.


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.


Question for married couples and others in intimate relationships:

Q: How can I express my mystical, loving union with you and God more fully?

Jesus speaks: I ask you to reach deep into your heart and express your deep love for Me and each other in this writing. I love you, Jesus.
