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.


September 9, 1994

Jesus speaks: To be My light shining forth to this world you must come and take refuge in My most Sacred Heart. I came as a little Child into your midst. The star shone bright above Me and I entered into this world. I am He Who lights the dark night. You will cast this light to this world if you are fixed in Me. Be the light that shines in the darkness. I am the Light of this world. You are My little lights that shine so deeply into the darkness. My Heart is a burning flame. When you take refuge in My Heart you are a light to the dark world. Come and dwell deeply in My most Sacred Heart, placed there by My most dear Mother.

Be as you are called by the Father, to shine forth to this world. I am He Who calls you now to go forth and light up this world with the fire of My most Sacred Heart. The love of the one, triune God, is that which powers you. If you are in the state of grace, Our life is so alive in you. You will radiate Our love to this world. My flame of love never falters. Take shelter from every affliction in My Sacred Heart.

I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I want to light this world with My love. Let Me shine and operate from you. Pray My Prayer for Union with Me. Offer yourself totally to the Father with Me in the Holy Spirit at every Mass. Stand under the cross with Mary and give yourself in total surrender to the Father. He has such plans for you. He loves you so much. You are the light that shines in the darkness. Let your light shine and they will see the God Who dwells in your breast. You are so loved, My most precious child. I am Jesus, My Heart is aglow for love of you.


Messenger: I had many experiences on First Saturdays.

The First Saturday, September 3, 1994, I had the following experience. I did not know what it meant. I had the sufferings of the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. Jesus gave me the preceding message on September 9, 1994, as an explanation of the experience on September 3, 1994.

On the first Saturday in September, 1997, I would have another experience.

Jesus appeared at the Morrow Center after a trip to Pennsylvania while we prayed the 3:00 p.m. prayers.

He was in the most glorious light against a dark background.

An important message was given early that morning. Another message was given September 22, 1997, in which He began: "Stiff-necked, stiff-necked, stiff-necked."


Excerpt from January 19, 1999 daily message:

On September 22, 1997, He said, "Would the destruction of your temples bring you to your knees? Or should I destroy My own houses?"

I suffered and suffered for three days.

At the end of the week, an earthquake tore apart the Basilica in Assisi and a picture of St. Francis and St. Clare, a famous fresco, was on many of the newspapers around the world.

(end of January 19, 1999 excerpt)


Messenger: On October 8, 1997, He gave the "Seedless, Barren, No Fruit on the Vine" message.

I see these messages as a set of three given as His message with the vision.

His desire is to set the world on fire with His love.

I quote from the message of March 26, 1996, (Apostles' Manual Pp 35-36, For Fr. Carter from Jesus:

Filled with My love, you will conquer this earth, not with weapons and powder or force, but with fires of My love. The fire will wipe out the hatred in the cold hearts and the earth will be covered with My celestial light. The earth will rock and I will appear in the heavens adorned in power and glory and the contrite hearts will be saved. I came to separate the sheep from the goats, the light from the darkness. I come and no one pays Me heed.

To you, My beloved son, Father Carter, I have sent you on a mission to spread this fire that will cover this earth. The hearts of men will turn from their sick and desolate ways to hearts gentle as a little lamb.

There will be one flock and one Shepherd and My staff will rule over all. Hearts consecrated to Our Hearts will lead the light across the earth. This light will be a light of intense brightness, brighter and hotter than any light from a flame. It will be the fire of God's love. The Spirit will move in the hearts of all consecrated to My Heart, and you will know how fire truly spreads, for the love of God is a fire. It is vibrant. It is encompassing. It is smoldering, burning deep within and speedily spreading on the outside. No fire on this earth can ever describe the burning embers that burn from the Sacred Heart of Jesus. No fire burns like the fires coming from My Heart and hearts filled with the love from the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

Messenger: On September 3, 1994, I had the sufferings of both Hearts, of Mary in the morning, of Jesus in the evening, followed by Mary’s vision when I prayed the 6:30 p.m. prayers.

Mary appeared after 6:30 p.m. every evening daily for 14 months as we prayed.

She now wishes prayer chapters all over the world praying as her Son directed February 23, 1999.

5 Years earlier February 23, 1994, "A City Set on a Hill will Shine its Light to the World" .

Picture of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

A City on a Hill Shines to the World

God's Blue Book II Cover

February 23, 1994 5:30 a.m.

Jesus speaks: I am the light of the world. A city on a hill will shine to the world. You at the Center will be this city when you are filled to the brim with the love of Jesus. What power, what might, to have each person a personal spouse of Jesus Christ! This is the light to the darkened world. The love of Jesus radiates from the very being of those who love Him. What light when all together are lifted by His love abounding deep within their breasts!

Bridal Mary

September 2, 1999 - 2nd message -

Accounted from the Sorrowful Mother Chapel beneath her feet at 6:00 a.m.

On September 3, 1994 - First Saturday

Messenger: I suffered the greatest sorrow within my heart for the sorrows of Mary. I had gone to Mass and the priest had done the peace rosary.

This is what would happen to me at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center. My heart would be in such anguish because of the sorrows of Mary I experienced. I would be buckled over in pain. This day I was before the Sorrowful Mother statue in the back of the main chapel. We were going to the Falmouth, Kentucky Farm, that day to pray. I was so drained and weak from this experience, I thought I could not go. I was weakened, so weakened, the experience lasted about an hour and was so intense. I existed in this intense pain of the Immaculate Heart.

That afternoon we came for the 6:30 p.m. prayers where Our Lady would appear. At 6:00 p.m. I went to the tabernacle in the Rosary Chapel and there was this picture of Jesus to the left of the tabernacleImage of the Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart and a candle with the Sacred Heart of Jesus on it. There was sunlight in the room from the rosary windows. I sat before the tabernacle on the altar as I had done so many times, before the picture and left of the tabernacle. I began to experience the deepest agony of His Heart. I knew the sorrow of His Heart for all who do not come before Him in the Blessed Sacrament . I knew His sorrow so deep within me for all the blocks I had experienced in delivering the messages. I was so weakened and I was suffering. Then the lights in the room dimmed and the picture of the Sacred Heart turned black before me. I could very faintly see His outline behind the blackness. The candle of the Sacred Heart went out. I sat on the end of my chair in pain and suffering and a fear shot through me. I wondered what had happened. It remained this way for about 5 minutes.

Then the light in the room returned, the candle went on and the picture became bright, all instantaneously, brighter than ever before. I went to the back of the chapel where Mary would appear, to do the 6:30 p.m. prayers and I cried. I was so shaken from the experience. Father Carter was there for the prayers. I was told to tell Father Smith, which I did.

On September 9, I received the following explanation of the vision. I repeat the writing September 9, 1994:

September 9, 1994

Jesus speaks: To be My light shining forth to this world you must come and take refuge in My most Sacred Heart. I came as a little Child into your midst. The star shone bright above Me and I entered into this world. I am He Who lights the dark night. You will cast this light to this world if you are fixed in Me. Be the light that shines in the darkness. I am the Light of this world. You are My little lights that shine so deeply into the darkness. My Heart is a burning flame. When you take refuge in My Heart you are a light to the dark world. Come and dwell deeply in My most Sacred Heart, placed there by My most dear Mother.

Be as you are called by the Father, to shine forth to this world. I am He Who calls you now to go forth and light up this world with the fire of My most Sacred Heart. The love of the one, triune God, is that which powers you. If you are in the state of grace, Our life is so alive in you. You will radiate Our love to this world. My flame of love never falters. Take shelter from every affliction in My Sacred Heart.

I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I want to light this world with My love. Let Me shine and operate from you. Pray My Prayer for Union with Me. Offer yourself totally to the Father with Me in the Holy Spirit at every Mass. Stand under the cross with Mary and give yourself in total surrender to the Father. He has such plans for you. He loves you so much. You are the light that shines in the darkness. Let your light shine and they will see the God Who dwells in your breast. You are so loved, My most precious child. I am Jesus, My Heart is aglow for love of you.


Messenger: That First Saturday I received the intense sorrow of both Hearts. I still remember it as if it just happened. I write beneath the foot of the Sorrowful Mother statue at 6:00 a.m. September 2, 1999.

The experience I received 3 years later on the First Saturday in September 1997, at the Morrow Center showed Him brilliant in light and the blackness behind Him.

To have what He wishes, hearts filled with fire, we must follow His plan.

Mary now appears as Our Lady of the Holy Spirit.

It is important we pray at 6:20 p.m. as a body on earth, all praying for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit and praying for our priests and the renewal of the Church and the world as He wishes.

I quote from a description of the Fatima October 13, 1917, event. It speaks of the radiant sun in the sky.

After a few moments the wonder stopped, but resumed again a second and a third time--three times in all--within about 12 minutes. It seemed that the whole world was on fire, with the sun spinning at a greater speed each time.

Then a gasp of terror rose from the crowd, for the sun seemed to tear itself from the heavens and come crashing down upon the horrified multitude.... Just when it seemed that the ball of fire would fall upon and destroy them, the miracle ceased, and the sun resumed its normal place in the sky, shining forth as peacefully as ever.


Luke 12:49-53

Jesus and his Passion

‘I have come to bring fire to the earth, and how I wish it were blazing already! There is a baptism I must still receive, and what constraint I am under until it is completed!’

Jesus the cause of dissension

Do you suppose that I am here to bring peace on earth? No, I tell you, but rather division. For from now on, a household of five will be divided: three against two and two against three; father opposed to son, son to father, mother to daughter, daughter to mother, mother-in-law to daughter-in-law, daughter-in-law to mother-in-law.’


Messenger: Further revelations on light from First Saturday of the month Mary appeared in Clearwater, Florida. December 7, 1996, First Saturday, Revelations on Light .


Messenger: I write as directed - the Interior Life - September 1, 1999, 11:00 p.m.

There is this place of interior union with our God that is like this little heaven on earth.

Today I received a message from Our Lady of the Holy Spirit at 6:10 a.m. and I see that in order for the Church to be more the bride of Christ as the Father wishes, men must ponder and live in this connection of Mary with the Trinity.

To ponder the relationship between the Father and Son takes my heart into such a depth of love for God and a place of greatest satisfaction. The oneness of God is indeed so real to me and the existence of the individual Persons so real. My relationship with each Person grows more and more in depth to a level where my soul is more fulfilled. From this place of union, I want to pray from the depth of my being, united to our God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit, united to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass through the purity of Mary’s Heart.

This place is so real to me, more real than the clamor of the earth around me. I can go there and be one with our Almighty God through the purity of Mary’s Heart. This is our little heaven on earth. In the reception of the Eucharist, there is such a deep connection with Jesus when He is present in His Divinity and Humanity.

For much of my life I never understood this connection between Father and Son and Holy Spirit nor how to pray to Them. The reality of this place has developed, allowing me to have a greater maturity of existing in Him, of dwelling in Their Hearts, because of the revelations He has given me and through praying as He has directed, especially through using the prayers in the Shepherds of Christ Prayer Manual.

Oh, I feel this is the place that each martyr knew, a place of being so one with the God within.

In reference to the Passion, there is always that constant awareness of Jesus’ oneness with the Father as Jesus keeps addressing Him. This oneness has been revealed to me in great experiences in the Mass. The joy is so deep in my soul to ponder these relationships of our God and my oneness with the Divine Persons and Mary’s relationship with Them and her oneness with Them in her Immaculate Heart. For all eternity, a life of love, the fullness of life existent in Him.

Oh, my heart sings and I long for that place, for life rooted in Him in great maturity for all eternity. Oh God, indeed You are so good to us. When we are in the state of grace, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit dwell within us in a special way. Oh God, my God, I adore, love You and worship You and thank You for this.


Revelation 21:1-2

Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; the first heaven and the first earth had disappeared now, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride dressed for her husband.


Question for married couples and others in intimate relationships:

Q: How do I feel we can grow closer in our relationship by seeing ourselves as children in the Father's family?
