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 7, 2003

Jesus speaks:        My sweet one,

                                I love you. The world is in darkness.

                            The devil comes as a prowling lion to

                            divide and to hurt My precious children.

                            He stalks the night for someone to devour.

                            You give into him when you give into pride

                            and jealousy. To want more than God wants

                            in a given situation is wrong. Love is not

                            love when one abandons God's will and gives

                            into foolish desires. Like a night watchman

                            who sees the thief when he enters the building,

                            I watch and I know the actions of satan.

                            He tricks the soul, he lures them with pride

                            wanting revelry. He is deception. He pulls

                            the wool over ones eyes and he works on

                            the appetites — the desires for goods, for

                            recognition, for wealth — the person thinks —

                            I will have love, I will be recognized, I

                            will feel good inside and they seek it in

                            another person, a situation on earth, they

                            want that craving inside satisfied by

                            money, a person, a job here below.

                                Nothing here on this earth, no material

                            possessions, no person alone will satisfy

                            your soul craving love with Me.    

Mary speaks:           I love Jesus. This should forever be on your lips.

                            What comes forth from inside a person, comes forth from

                            them. Purity is within the soul. You can see a clean

                            object and a dirty object and you may wish to wash

                            the dirty object clean to purify it.

                                Sin entered the world. Many see the evil of others,

                            many learn from their care givers to be unloving when

                            others learned to be accepted and loved, they may have

                            suffered abuse at home and/or may have been always

                            told to get "out-of-the-way". Selfish-wounded parents, ones

                            in dysfunctional homes, may have been so self-focused

                            or mothers focused on their dysfunctional partner or

                            visa versa, the child goes into the world wounded,

                            looking for the love and acceptance they should have

                            gotten as little babies and little children. They cannot

                            live in an intimate setting with others until their

                            healing takes place. They try to create that same

                            scenario all through life when relating to others

                            expecting others to be surrogate parents, loving

                            them, accepting them, they project their own feelings

                            on others in an attempt to "one-last-time" correct

                            the injustice done to them in childhood. Until

                            they beg God for the truth about their own

                            hurts and sins in dealing with others, they weave

                            a web of deception and lies about themselves and

                            those around them, living in the past and trying to

                            work through their wounded childhood. My Son Jesus

                            will help those who come humbly working the steps

                            of love — admitting that God comes first, they are

                            entirely dependent on God, giving their will and their

                            lives to Him, accepting the crosses he sends, accepting

                            ones way of life, living in the moment, to the full to

                            give God honor and glory and wanting to promote

                            the Kingdom of God and making a fearless inventory.

                                Oh heavenly lights shine on my little ones. Let them

                            see their sordid ways. Oh my beloved God outpour

                            Your grace on the wounded children and wash them

                            of their inequities.

Messenger:               Oh Mary help us to be pure like you.

Mary speaks:            Oh child, I am the singular vessel, I appear to

                            help the little ones go to God, go my little ones, now,

                            Jesus is your Savior. I appear here to lead you to

                            Him. He came to set the captives free. You are

                            children of Adam and Eve, I am the New Eve, Jesus

                            is the New Adam. I am Mary, Immaculately conceived,

                            come to my Immaculate Heart. I crush the head

                            of the serpent. I stand triumphant over the world

                            crushing the head of the devil. I appear in Florida,

                            I appear in the heel of the foot, if you pray to me

                            as Our Lady of Clearwater, I will intercede to God

                            for grace to be outpoured on you for your needs, for

                            grace to be released on the troubled earth, grace

                            my children, I am the Mediatrix of all grace. I

                            am Mary Immaculate.

                                Look at my Miraculous Medal.

                                I appeared as Our Lady of Grace.


Messenger:               Mary told me to show this sketch



September 7, 2003 message continues

Messenger:               Mary is the Mediatrix of all grace.

                                She appears in Clear Water.

                                Water is used as a sign of purity.

Mary speaks:        My child what is in a person comes forth.

                            My child my Son has asked you to write for this world.

                            My child, my Son has chosen you to deliver His words

                                here and I have appeared to you to deliver

                                my words to my children, the people of God.

                            My child, I love you. Write always as We have

                                instructed you. The devil is cunning, in these

                                writings. We have unveiled some of the tactics of

                                the devil that keeps people stuck most of their lives.

                            These are messages from heaven.

                            I crush the head of the serpent with my heel.

                            My child satan uses others to try to discredit the

                            Church and institutions promoting holiness.

                                Satan is vile, he wants souls for hell,

                            some of my children allow satan to speak

                            through them.

                                Purity is inside the person. Others may

                            project their anger on others.

                            They create situations in their minds with

                            players and think someone has harmed them

                            when in fact it was a situation in their

                            mind. A person victimized all their life may

                            look for people and situations in which

                            they can project their ideas in their mind on

                            other innocent parties. They create the

                            same stage, accusing an innocent person of

                            victimizing them. I crush the head of the serpent

                            that keeps people stuck. I appear in Clearwater,

                            Our Lady of Clearwater. I want my children to

                            come humbly to me. I want them to want to be

                            pure. My Son Jesus has promised to outpour

                            the grace of healing on those who come humbly

                            to this place and pray for healing for themselves

                            and others.

                                Pride keeps people stuck. They are prideful many

                            times and jealous.

                            I appear the Lady of Gold, the Lady clothed in Rainbow

                            gown, the Lady of hope, the Lady of Love to my

                            wounded children.

                                I am Mary Immaculate, Queen of the Universe. I

                            appear to my children of the earth. Some are so set in

                            their ways and so selfish. Some come with open hearts

                            and love to give me. I like this. I am a Mother of love.

                                Two men came to pray. One came to give honor and

                            glory to God. Another came and complained to God,

                            day after day he cried "Oh poor me, they did this to me

                            and that."

                                Oh my children. God wants to be loved and honored.

                            Do you have a relationship with God? A loving relationship?

                            When you are filled with love, your face lights up

                            and you smile with joy. You may have problems,

                            but you are always so one with God and you live

                            in Him.

                                Another man carried a big heavy bag. It was so

                            heavy he couldn't lift it. He was always looking

                            for someone to put the bag on their back. He would

                            not put it down. In the bag was anger and wounds he

                            remembered from his whole life, but he would project

                            those hurts on those presently around him. He

                            would play manipulative games of control and

                            other games that never took him to his goal.

                            His life was lived working out old wounds on others

                            and projecting his anger on those who were

                            presently around them.

Jesus speaks:       Oh the games people play.

                            I was crowned with thorns for your sins.

                            My body was beaten because of your sins.

                            I carried the sins of the world on my back.

                            They stood around Me and jeered at Me,

                                they condemned Me to death.

                            Oh I want to write you a sonnet.

                            I want you to sing love songs to Me.

                            I want you to have joy in your hearts.

                            I want you to know that peace in found in Me.

                            A man went out and he lived his life setting

                                a big trap. He himself kept walking

                                into the trap himself. He would be

                                caught in the web of deception and

                                lies that he himself had woven. The

                                darkness of himself he projected on others

                                and he would "spiel" hateful things

                                at his superiors and others that

                                surrounded him.

                            He would never look at himself, he

                                did it over and over again and he

                                hurt people, but he always told himself

                                he was justified.

                                Another person abused those closest to him.

                            His children and his family.

Mary speaks:          My children here is my message to you.


Sorrowful MotherMary's Message
from the Rosary of August 27, 1996

Mary speaks: I stood beneath the cross of my Son, and my Heart was in such pain for I saw Him before my eyes. I saw Him covered with blood. I saw Him die. My Heart, my children, my Heart to watch my Son, but my Heart, my Heart, how I suffered for my little children of the world that give in to this world and give up the love of my Son. O my little children of light, I give you this message. Carry this light into the darkness for your Mother Mary, for I stood beneath the cross and I cried. I cried for the little ones. I cried for the young ones, the ones that do not care and will lose their souls. How do I make you see for you will not listen to me? What can I do? I come. I appear. I beg. I plead. I give you these gifts from my Son, and you reject me. I do not deliver messages very often anymore for I have been ignored. The message is the same. You do not read the messages I have given to you. Please help me. Help the little children. I appear. I appear. I appear, and I am ignored. I stood beneath the cross, and I cried. I cried, and my Heart was in such anguish for my little children, for I am searching for them this day as I searched for the Child Jesus. Please, please help me. I cannot hold back the hand of my Son any longer. I am Mary, your Mother. I ask you to help my children. You are my children of light.

end of Mary's Message, August 27, 1996


September 7, 2003 message continues

Mary speaks:        Oh my children help me spread this message to the

                                world. So many children are wounded and

                                hurt others.

                                You must be truthful to yourselves.

                            One woman went from husband to husband,

                                (in fact she did not have real husbands),

                                she would act the same way with every man.

                                She had the same problem with each person, but

                                    they were different men.

                                Finally she was forced to live by herself.

                                She could change, but she kept telling

                                    herself that everyone around her

                                    was wrong and she was right.

                            When those around you all look the same —

                                family, after family and you keep going

                                into new settings, trying to set up "shop"

                                according to your dysfunctional ways —

                                (trying to get others to do your dysfunctional dance)

                                You will finally have two choices after you

                                leave a field of wounded people because

                                you were wounded in childhood — you

                                can change or you can be alone, because

                                how you are inside determines your

                                peace. (see message at the end from

                                Blue Book)

                            You determine how you are inside.

                                Projecting your vile anger on person after

                                    person is because — YOU ARE ANGRY.

                                Some people see themselves as a victim

                                    and go from one situation to another

                                    finding a new victimizer to pin their hurt

                                    on and then they become angry and want

                                    to strike out when others don't want to do

                                    their "sordid" dance and play their game.

                            I am the handmaid of the Lord.


Luke 1: 46-55

                    The Magnificat

And Mary said:

My soul proclaims
    the greatness of the Lord
and my spirit rejoices
    in God my Saviour;
because he has looked upon
    the humiliation of his servant.
Yes, from now onwards
    all generations will call me blessed,
for the Almighty
    has done great things for me.
Holy is his name,
and his faithful love extends age after age
    to those who fear him.
He has used the power of his arm,
he has routed the arrogant of heart.
He has pulled down princes
    from their thrones
        and raised high the lowly.
He has filled the starving with good things,
    sent the rich away empty.
He has come to the help
    of Israel his servant,
        mindful of his faithful love
—according to the promise
    he made to our ancestors—
of his mercy to Abraham
    and to his descendants for ever.



Ezekiel 34: 11-16

    “For the Lord Yahweh says this: Look, I myself shall take care of my flock and look after it. As a shepherd looks after his flock when he is with his scattered sheep, so shall I look after my sheep. I shall rescue them from wherever they have been scattered on the day of clouds and darkness. I shall bring them back from the peoples where they are; I shall gather them back from the countries and bring them back to their own land. I shall pasture them on the mountains of Israel, in the ravines and in all the inhabited parts of the country. I shall feed them in good pasturage; the highest mountains of Israel will be their grazing ground. There they will rest in good grazing grounds; they will browse in rich pastures on the mountains of Israel. I myself shall pasture my sheep, I myself shall give them rest–declares the Lord Yahweh. I shall look for the lost one, bring back the stray, bandage the injured and make the sick strong. I shall watch over the fat and healthy. I shall be a true shepherd to them."



September 7, 2003 message continues

Jesus speaks:      They beat Me —

                            They cried obscenities at Me —

                            The struck Me —

                            Finally they raised Me high on the cross

                                and crucified Me.

                            My Mother Mary is pure —

                            What comes out of you in anger is

                                inside of you.

                            Terrible things were said about Me.

                            I am the Son of God.

                            Like a little innocent Lamb, I was led to

                                the slaughter.

                            They crucified Me.


Picture of the Sacred Heart of JesusI Died In Peace

August 31, 1993

Jesus speaks: You are hurried. Relax and soak in My peace. Only My peace will quiet you. Your days are full of changes. You are adapting well, but always come back to My peace. Breathe in Jesus, out anxiety and fear. In Jesus, out anxiety. Quiet your mind and focus just on My face. See My sorrowful face, see Me with thorns. Bring yourself back to the Passion. It is because of you and your sins I suffered and died for all My children. How great is My love for you that I would die for love of you. Think of this-that you have a friend Who died for you. Oh, how I love, how I long to be with you to tell you of My infinite love for you. Your human minds cannot even comprehend My Divine love! In your deepest meditation you couldn't come close to all the love I have for you. But you must keep trying to know and feel this love. This is your salvation. This is what sets you free in a world of hate. You can always be drawn back to My love and know it is waiting for you always. It never stops. It is infinite. This is what comforts your troubled soul. When they scorn you and mock you, think of Me loving you. I am the all-perfect love. Always come back to Me. Don't let the world get to you. I am here, with peace, love, joy, rapture, being connected to your heart so divinely. I love you so much! I wish you would totally feel this love the way I want you to.

The only way you can experience Me more is to let go of the world more. In this bustling world, My peace reigns. It is in the quiet of your heart. It is within you and you can stay connected at every moment. You never have to lose this peace no matter what goes on around you. You can be a pillar of peace because I am peace. I am joy. I died in peace and dignity. My peace was not shattered even to death. You can experience this peace if you stay in Me. It is My gift I give you. Remember I was at peace at My death. You are being strengthened in your trials. You are growing in My peace. You are learning not to shatter to anything, that if you stay rooted in Me I never leave you and you remain at peace though the earth be shaking. For I am He Who lives in you. You can have this same consistency, but you must stay so connected to Me every minute, every second. Breathe in Jesus, out fear. Look at My face. It is there for you. Look and see Me, I am your rock. You will not falter or fall on your face. Your heart is rooted in My peace and My love. It is consistent, it is everlasting, it is intense and it is My gift to My children who remain fixed in Me. I love you.
