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: I was out of town with my family in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on August 13. I had spent most of the day in prayer and was instructed. I was given messages from our Lady early on August 14, 1999. I suffered intently with the message she gave from 2:00 a.m. to 3:00 a.m. At 3:00 a.m., I was instructed to write. She strongly requested that the 6:20 p.m. novena prayers be said at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center at 6:20 p.m., if possible before the Eucharist and the Sorrowful Mother statue. She referred to herself as Our Lady of the Holy Spirit.

On August 16, 1999, I attended Mass and she appeared as Our Lady of the Holy Spirit after several of us had prayed the prayers silently before the Sorrowful Mother statue.

Excerpt from a message received on August 16, 1999

Messenger: Our Lady appeared yesterday August 16, 1999, as Our Lady of the Holy Spirit.

She was not hard like stone or wood of a statue.

She was not like the flesh and body of a person.

In trying to describe the vision, I could only say she looked like glass, but that is not it at all.

Today Jesus pointed out the line in the Magnificat:

Luke 1:46

And Mary said:

My soul proclaims
the greatness of the Lord

Messenger: This is what He told me. Her love is so pure, like His, not selfish or jealous, purely going out to the other, selfless love, love rooted in Him.

Her face was beautiful, so clear, so absolutely pure, appearing in this glass-like tone. I do not know how to describe the beauty of the purity of her body and face that reflected a pure soul within most likened to God.

She does not carry with her "baggage" as we do. Her Heart is forgiving, loving, pure and holy.

She is our model, the Immaculate Virgin, the Mystical rose, with a beauty indescribable in words.

The vision was elegant against a darkened black background. The blackness was behind her, her beauty glistening in such "glass-like" elegance before the black background. Her movements were gentle and flowing, her light indescribable in words.

(end of excerpt from August 16, 1999 message)

Message Continues from August 21, 1999

Messenger: The next day in the morning our Lady appeared again in the statue. She appeared as she appeared during the times I had gone to the Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center between July 5, 1994 - September 5, 1995. She was filled with beauteous light.

Today, Saturday, August 21, 1999, I attended Mass there. When the priest prayed the peace rosary after Mass, she appeared again. She was glorious and the Mass was most powerful.

Before Mass as I had prayed before the Sorrowful Mother statue and the Sacred Heart statue on each side of the tabernacle I saw myself deeply united to all in the world as if one with the whole world and all souls. As I prayed the litanies beginning with the invocations to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, I begged with all my soul for mercy and felt so connected to all the souls of the earth. I prayed every invocation to our Lord and our Lady and I was one with Them in the prayer.

Mary speaks: I ask all to pray for peace and oneness in the world and to pray the Our Father. Stress every word! Pray that the will of the Father is done on earth as it is in heaven and pray for forgiveness.

I love you, Mary

I am Our Lady of the Holy Spirit.
