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:        The Baptism of Jesus


Matthew 3: 13-17

Then Jesus appeared: he came from Galilee to the Jordan to be baptised by John. John tried to dissuade him, with the words, ‘It is I who need baptism from you, and yet you come to me!’ But Jesus replied, ‘Leave it like this for the time being; it is fitting that we should, in this way, do all that uprightness demands.’ Then John gave in to him. 

    And when Jesus had been baptised he at once came up from the water, and suddenly the heavens opened and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and coming down on him. And suddenly there was a voice from heaven, ‘This is my Son, the Beloved; my favour rests on him.’

Messenger:        At the end of the message we will

                            The Vocation of the Apostles

                                Christ has called us to be the

                                    Apostles of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.


Excerpt from July 11, 2003 message

Messenger:        How do we treat God?

                            Is He first in our life?

                            Jesus calls us to help promote His Kingdom.

                            See Jesus calling us to a life of love.

                            See Jesus calling us to promote His Kingdom.

                            If Jesus walked the earth today and He called

                                us — would we follow Him?

                            See Jesus as He calls the apostles.

                            He left the apostles here to do the work He


                            Today we are here to continue that work

                                and build His Kingdom.

                            Pray for the grace to do His holy will and to

                                hear His call.

                            God calls us to promote His Kingdom.

                            We are at battle with the ancient serpent

                                the devil.

                            We have to live right to spread His Word

                                to the far ends of the earth. To tell

                                the world the "good news."

                            Satan wants souls for hell.

                            Jesus wants souls for heaven.

                            Jesus is the King of heaven and earth.

                            We are His apostles working here for Him.

                            We help to feed the children by telling them

                                about His love. They are hungry.

                            We are placed on this earth.

                            Jesus is the King over all the earth.

                            We pray for all the souls as intercessors.

Messenger:        The First Miracle Performed at the

                                Marriage Feast of Cana in Galilee


John 2:1-11

The wedding at Cana

On the third day there was a wedding at Cana in Galilee. The mother of Jesus was there, and Jesus and his disciples had also been invited. And they ran out of wine, since the wine provided for the feast had all been used, and the mother of Jesus said to him, ‘They have no wine.’ Jesus said, ‘Woman, what do you want from me? My hour has not come yet.’ His mother said to the servants, ‘Do whatever he tells you.’ There were six stone water jars standing there, meant for the ablutions that are customary among the Jews: each could hold twenty or thirty gallons. Jesus said to the servants, ‘Fill the jars with water,’ and they filled them to the brim. Then he said to them, ‘Draw some out now and take it to the president of the feast.’ They did this; the president tasted the water, and it had turned into wine. Having no idea where it came from—though the servants who had drawn the water knew—the president of the feast called the bridegroom and said, ‘Everyone serves good wine first and the worse wine when the guests are well wined; but you have kept the best wine till now.’ This was the first of Jesus’ signs: it was at Cana in Galilee. He revealed his glory, and his disciples believed in him.

                ...‘This is my Son, the Beloved; my favour rests on him.’ 
                Matthew 3:17


Revelation 19: 1-10


Songs of victory in heaven

After this I heard what seemed to be the great sound of a huge crowd in heaven, singing, ‘Alleluia! Salvation and glory and power to our God! He judges fairly, he punishes justly, and he has condemned the great prostitute who corrupted the earth with her prostitution; he has avenged the blood of his servants which she shed.’ And again they sang, ‘Alleluia! The smoke of her will rise for ever and ever.’ Then the twenty–four elders and the four living creatures threw themselves down and worshipped God seated on his throne, and they cried, ‘Amen, Alleluia.’ 

    Then a voice came from the throne; it said, ‘Praise our God, you servants of his and those who fear him, small and great alike.’ And I heard what seemed to be the voices of a huge crowd, like the sound of the ocean or the great roar of thunder, answering, ‘Alleluia! The reign of the Lord our God Almighty has begun; let us be glad and joyful and give glory to God, because this is the time for the marriage of the Lamb. His bride is ready, and she has been able to dress herself in dazzling white linen, because her linen is made of the good deeds of the saints.’ The angel said, ‘Write this, "Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding feast of the Lamb," ’ and he added, ‘These words of God are true.’ Then I knelt at his feet to worship him, but he said to me, ‘Never do that: I am your fellow–servant and the fellow–servant of all your brothers who have in themselves the witness of Jesus. God alone you must worship.’ The witness of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

        (8)    God calls us to conversion.

        (9)    Mary has appeared at Fatima —
                    she told us until a sufficient 
                    amount of people give their 
                    hearts to Jesus and Mary 
                    we won't have peace in the world.

        (10)    Excerpt from The Spirituality of Fatima


    ...Tell everybody that God gives graces through the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Tell them to ask grace from her, and that the Heart of Jesus wishes to be venerated together with the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Ask them to plead for peace from the Immaculate Heart of Mary, for the Lord has confided the peace of the world to her. (19)

        (1)    Mark 9: 2-8


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.

        (2)    God gives us His Love, His Sacred Heart 
                    is burning and on fire for love of men.

        (3)    Do you realize how bright the sun is.

        (4)    Can you envision Jesus
                    appearing so bright 
                    before you, you could 
                    hardly see — and yet you 
                    see Him and when you 
                    look away your eyes are 
                    blinded from the vision.

        (5)         Hear the voice of the Father speak —
                     ...‘This is my Son, the Beloved; my favour rests on him.’ 
      Matthew 3:17


        (6)         We cannot even imagine the 
                        beauty of our own graced soul.

        (7)         God is Light.

        (8)         God gives us Himself in the Eucharist.

        (9)         We are able to go to the Church 
                        sometimes and worship 
                        before the exposed Eucharist.

        (10)       God's love fills my heart —
                        He is the Light

                    We must carry this love
                        to others so they can see
                        His life alive in us.






    The Last Supper

        (1)    Jesus was gathered with His Apostles
                    at the Last Supper.

        (2)    Jesus remains with us today.

        (3)    Our priests have the power to change
                    bread and wine into the
                    Body and Blood of Jesus.

        (4)    Our priests are so important to us.

        (5)    This Movement Shepherds of Christ
                    is to pray for the priests,
                    the Church and the world.

        (6)    The Mass is so powerful.



A Prayer before the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass

    Let me be a holy sacrifice and unite with God in the sacrament of His greatest love.

    I want to be one in Him in this act of love, where He gives Himself to me and I give myself as a sacrifice to Him. Let me be a holy sacrifice as I become one with Him in this my act of greatest love to Him.

    Let me unite with Him more, that I may more deeply love Him. May I help make reparation to His adorable Heart and the heart of His Mother, Mary. With greatest love, I offer myself to You and pray that You will accept my sacrifice of greatest love. I give myself to You and unite in Your gift of Yourself to me. Come and possess my soul.

    Cleanse me, strengthen me, heal me. Dear Holy Spirit act in the heart of Mary to make me more and more like Jesus.

    Father, I offer this my sacrifice, myself united to Jesus in the Holy Spirit to You. Help me to love God more deeply in this act of my greatest love.

    Give me the grace to grow in my knowledge, love and service of You and for this to be my greatest participation in the Mass. Give me the greatest graces to love You so deeply in this Mass, You who are so worthy of my love.

                                                                           -God's Blue Book, December 27, 1995

        (8)    Jesus died and Jesus rose on the third day.

        (9)         "      "      "      "        "     "    "     "       "  
                This is the paschal mystery.

        (10)  God is with us today.
                He is no less present in the
                Eucharist than He was
                when He walked the earth.
