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.

May 3, 1999  -  Third Message

From Jesus: A Message on Purity in Dress

Jesus speaks: Because sin has entered the world many are tempted.

All must dress with purity in order not to do the devil's work by luring others into sin.

Grade school teachers should dress modestly. Little children have seen the nudity in this world. A young child can be led astray through clothing that is tight or revealing.

Mary, My Mother wore dresses of great purity. Mary teaches her children her ways of purity. Mary wants women to dress in clothing conducive to purity. Mary is Mother most pure.

From a message Mary gave to Jacinta before she died:

Excerpt from The Spirituality of Fatima and Medjugorje

More souls go to Hell because of sins of the flesh than for any other reason.

Certain fashions will be introduced that will offend Our Lord very much.

Mary speaks: Mothers who are models for boys and girls should dress appropriately. Mothers should follow me, their spiritual Mother. With the upcoming days on the beach, mothers should watch the way they parade their bodies before their children. They tell them they condone nudity and skimpy fashions when they as models wear seductive swimwear before their children. If you give bad example in this regard, realize the damage you as a mother can do to your children when later on in life boys see the lurid, seductive magazines, movies and pictures other youngsters and adults show them. If a mother always displays purity in action and modesty in her clothing, the child knows by her example that she did not condone this behavior or fashions.

My parents, you are models for your children and all others and you will be held accountable if you lured others into sin. You do the devil's work when you wear seductive clothing. Why do your wear it, but to draw attention to your bodies, to the things of the flesh.

All things must be according to God's will.

Abuse of alcohol, smoking, cursing, taking my Son's name in vain, gambling, cheating, telling lies are ways in which you may give very bad example to others, especially the young.

Excerpt from The Spirituality of Fatima and Medjugorje

During this same July apparition, Mary showed the three children a vision of Hell. She told them:

You have seen Hell, where the souls of poor sinners go. To save them, God wishes to establish, in the world, devotion to my Immaculate Heart. If people do what I tell you, many souls will be saved and there will be peace.

The war (World War I, then raging) is going to end. But if people do not stop offending God, another and worse one will begin in the reign of Pius XI. When you shall see a night illuminated by an unknown light [January 2, 1938], know that this is the great sign that God gives you that He is going to punish the world for its many crimes by means of war, hunger, and persecution of the Church and the Holy Father. (12)

To prevent this, I shall come to ask for the consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart and the Communion of Reparation on the five first Saturdays. If my requests are granted, Russia will be converted and there will be peace. if not, she will scatter her errors throughout the world, provoking wars and persecutions of the Church. The good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer, and various nations will be destroyed....

But in the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph, the Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, Russia will be converted, and a certain period of peace will be granted to the world. (13)

13. Our Lady's Peace Plan, op cit., p. 5.

Mary speaks: Today war has torn up some of your land, but you will not listen to me.

I appeared at Fatima, I was ignored, you suffered World War II.

I appeared at Medjugorje, you suffer your wars.

I appeared at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center, the corner fell to the ground.

I appeared at Falmouth, your town was flooded as was the Cincinnati area.

You have been given great gifts from God in the Cincinnati area.

I appear in Clearwater, Florida. Last summer you experienced the fires in Florida.

Oh, my children, help me, please. My Son Jesus loves you so.

You must lead your children to the Eucharist, to consecration to Our Hearts and praying the rosary.

My Son Jesus wants the prayer chapters with the prayers given to be begun.

We will protect the children who pray and give Us their hearts.

Your children are your key.

Join the school rosary program in the Catholic schools. Do not pass out messages in schools. Use the designated Imprimatur material for this endeavor. Funds are needed to spread this program to your schools. Will you help spread the school rosary program material to the children? It is available through Shepherds of Christ Ministries. Please supply the children with rosaries, consecration cards, meditations approved for schools and the prayer manual. Please begin prayer chapters.

Your children attending daily Mass and receiving the Eucharist provide tremendous prayer power for your world.

Only God can help this troubled world. You will suffer. The more you pray, the more grace is released from God to His children so that you will choose the right way. Your world has turned so secular. You teach your children ballet and sports and fail to focus your lives on God.

I wish the Ten Commandments to be written here.

The Ten Commandments

  1.   I, the Lord, am your God. You shall not have other gods besides me.
  2.   You shall not take the name of the Lord, your God, in vain.
  3.   Remember to keep holy the sabbath day.
  4.   Honor your father and your mother.
  5.   You shall not kill.
  6.   You shall not commit adultery.
  7.   You shall not steal.
  8.   You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
  9.   You shall not covet your neighbor's wife.
  10.   You shall not covet anything that belongs to your neighbor.

Mary speaks: Your children can help your world instead of leading it into greater darkness.

People and children must pray.

I am the Queen of Peace.

I wish children to act out in drama the rosary meditations, to be a living rosary and use the meditations as their guide. Children should pray the rosary with the meditations I have given you.

Children need to pray my rosary with their whole heart, whole mind and whole soul.

Children can act out the mysteries of the rosary for others while praying it, using the meditations given to them from Our Hearts.

My Son Jesus wishes emotion. He wants you to attend Mass and pray with love-filled hearts, deep from your souls, showing your burning love for God.

I love you so much my little children, I am Mary your Mother.

Feast of St. Philip and St. James

Jesus speaks: My apostles, you need to pray to the Apostles to pray and intercede for you. Pray through the powerful intercession of St. Joseph and St. Paul and all gospel writers. You are given great writings to unveil the Scriptures. Do not hold back. Your writings will help renew the Church and the world. All should pray for these writings that they are accepted with an open heart. This includes all priestly newsletters, daily messages, Mass Books, rosary meditations, Blue Books, all of Father Carter's publications. Pray My children for grace for those who read them, that they will see the light. Pray for them.

Mary speaks: I was pierced through clean to my heart for my children that would be lost, for the devil works so hard on my children. I ask you to pray, to continue to pray, and to help me, for my Heart is in such pain for the children that will be lost. Oh, the pain. And I stood beneath the cross of my Son and I cried. Feel the pain in your heart, the utter pain of those that will be lost forever. For the world does not realize that the deaths of so many children are far greater than the few that were massacred at the hands of such sick children, the deaths of my children falling into the pit of hell. Please, my children, be strong, and pray for the grace to endure the suffering. For you will suffer more and more, as you walk, as my Son walked on the way to the hill of Calvary. And He mounted the cross, and He gave Himself for love of you, Jesus Christ, the Savior of the World.
