Mary has requested that the daily message be given each day to the world. It is read nightly at the prayer service from her Image Building in Clearwater, Florida, U.S.A. This is according to her request. All attempts will be made to publish this daily message to the world at 11 p.m. Eastern time, U.S.A.

We acknowledge that the final authority regarding these messages rests with the Holy See of Rome.

I appear my children on this former bank building in Florida, Our Lady Clothed with the Sun.

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: Include Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center in 6:20 prayers.

Jesus speaks: I am not a "textbook Jesus."

I am the Living God.

From the Holy Spirit Novena:

Prayer for the Word Alive in Our Hearts

We know, dear Holy Spirit, the Word in His human nature was brought forth within the womb of the woman. We pray that His word will be brought forth in our hearts as He lives and dwells in us. We want the incarnation to go on in our lives. Dear Holy Spirit, work in us.

Messenger: Jesus said yesterday:


I was looking for my prayer tapes this morning, feeling overwhelmed with all I have to do for so many and being tired from late night commitments to my family, and I found an old tape.

Jesus told me to read the beginning messages He gave me and listen to them over and over again.

This message was from December 17, 1993.

I include this message here from Blue Book I.

Picture of the Sacred Heart of JesusI Communicate In Your Heart

God's Blue Book I CoverDecember 17, 1993

Jesus speaks: You come and I wait for you to be here. I am the divine healer. I know Mine and My love for you bids you to come and be with Me. But many stay away even when they know how much I long to be with them and want to give them My gifts.

My love for you, each of you, bids Me to call each of you. But do you come? Where do you go, little scared ones? You look in vain in this valley of tears for a place of refuge. You drink, eat, seek, wander-all those things which lead you to the world-while I, Who alone can quiet your stalking heart, sit without your love. I am longing for your love. I am waiting for you to come and be with Me, but you are busy, busy off doing all those little things the world calls you to do.

I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus. My heart is a raging fire for love of you. My arms are waiting for you, open wide.

I am a furnace on fire for love of you.

Do you come to get your supplies from Me? When you visit Me at the tabernacle, I am full of intense love. I am bursting with My power to give in your soul. You sit, I dish it out in big, big scoops. My light becomes your inward flame, shining brightly for the world. You are given the light of life, a light shining in a dark world, a breath of warmth to a cold, cold heart. You are given interior healing. You are given the ability to be open to Me and to grow in your love of Me. What gifts I bestow to your weary soul!

You come empty, you leave full. "But," you say, "Lord, Lord, do I see You? Do You speak to me? What words, Lord? I sit and You are there, My God, but what words did You speak?" And I say to you: to a lover, do you ask how do you speak or are you just thrilled to sit by His side? Do you just feel the magic in being with one you love? Do you expect profound wisdom and measure His words as proof of the value of your time spent together?

I say to you, little child, I am as an ardent lover. Come and sit and be with Me! I do not measure what you say to Me. I sit and wait for you to come, day and night, and am always so happy when you come. I am the lover Who waits for your soul to be here. How do I communicate and become in union with your soul? Words are not the only way you communicate with your loved ones. Being present is all that matters. Few words may be spoken. I am God and I become joined with you in your soul. Talking, listening, etc., are human ways to communicate. Seeing, touching and hugging are all expressions of the body for love.

I communicate in your heart. I open wide your soul and fill you with a mystical light. You are transported to points you do not know. You still look for your human means of expression. I pour out My gifts of love and you do not even know how God touches you and loves you. You do not comprehend loving in the spirit. Come and sit with Me and experience love in your soul. You cannot put a finger on such spiritual things. How do you touch peace in one's heart? How do you touch compassion and love for your brothers in your soul? Can you touch the heart of Jesus? Can you touch Me? Then why do you want Me to communicate like a human?

Do you want My peace? Do you want My love? Do you want to experience the fire of My heart? You will not do this in human terms. Come and sit with Me and let Me have a free hand at filling you to the brim with the things of God. Open yourself up to your soul! Do not question. Do not become bored when you sit alone with Me. Become open and attentive. Listen. Do not be busy. Be silent and still. Let Me act. I am God. What could you do in My presence that could top what I want to do for you! Be still and know I am your God. Sit with your hearts open and your mind ready to be filled. Do not question what did I get with Him today. Is this how you approach your lover? You are just filled in your heart. Be filled in your heart by My presence. Come out of love and leave walking on a cloud! Oh, how I love you. Don't bring your business to My tabernacle. Throw away your watch. Don't time yourself with Me. Come and sit a while and let Me work in your heart. Let Me fill you with the things of the spirit. Let God penetrate your inner being. You come, inactive and open. This is My calling!

Such insights as wisdom, peace, love, joy, yearning-all the miraculous things man could never find anywhere on earth-that is what you get here and nowhere else! Come with your hearts open and your time free to be with your lover. Do you watch the clock when you are with one you love? Time escapes you and you never want to leave. Come to Me, your most ardent lover, in this same manner. Be filled to the brim with this love I have for you. Where, child, could you buy such a gift as the Love of God!

I am one crying out to you to come and get your supplies. Do not operate in this world without your arms. Your arms are your heart filled by the fire of My love. You are soldiers of love in a dark world. Where you go I power you with My love and light and you walk this darkness with the glow of My heart. I love you, little one. Come and get your supplies. Do not measure your visits or ask what you get. I am giving to you out of My bounty. That is not in words. It is a charge in your hearts and souls.

Messenger: Please read the message and remember Jesus showed me His burning Heart that is pictured on the front of Blue Book II.

I received this vision December 17, 1991, two years before I received the message included here today.

Three years later after Mary appeared about 500 times, Mary appeared on the building on the date December 17, 1996.

He cries out to us:


Jesus cried out this morning: 

I am not a "textbook Jesus". I am the living God.

Oh, to describe Him. He is personal, He is alive, He wants us to be so one with Him that our thoughts center on Him.

He wants to possess our souls, to act in us.

He wants His Church living deeply as His bride.

He wants us to bear great fruit.

Messenger: Mary is always bringing forth children.

In anguishing pain she labors to bring forth her children.

I never realized more than I did today the action of the Holy Spirit and His relationship with Mary and how we are increasingly being brought forth with Christís life more alive in us.

A Virgin birth Bishop Sheen speaks of:

A Virgin birth of Jesus.
A Virgin birth of the Church.
A Virgin birth of the individual Christian.

We must see more fully the work of the Holy Spirit working with the Mother of God and our Mother.

Mary, Queen of Apostles, help us.

Revelation 12:1

Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman, robed with the sun, standing on the moon, and on her head a crown of twelve stars.

Messenger: I know more of the anguishing labor of the Lady Clothed with the Sun bringing forth her children of light.

Jesus is the Light of the World.
Mary is His Mother.
Mary is our Mother.
Mary is the Mother of the Church.

Last year on this Solemnity of Mary, I was told that we needed to pray the Shepherds of Christ Prayers (Shepherds of Christ Prayer Manual) in Our Ladyís House, Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center.

There is only now a small handful of us praying there at 6:20 daily.

We invite you to come there and pray Monday - Friday at 6:20 p.m. If you cannot come, pray for this, it is Maryís intention.

She appeared to me daily there July 5, 1994 - September 5, 1995.

Mary appeared daily from July 5, 1994 - September 5, 1995 in this statue.

Messenger: Mary appeared nine months in the Rosary Chapel there giving birth to the Shepherds of Christ Movement. She was then moved to the Sorrowful Mother Chapel where she continued to appear daily until September 5, 1995.

After about 500 apparitions Mary appeared on the building in Clearwater, Florida, December 17, 1996.

Messenger: Mary, Mother of God, help us.


Messenger: On December 17, 1996, this book, Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary arrived at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center from the publisher. The rainbow on the book matched the rainbow color as Mary appeared on the building in Clearwater, Florida.

In the beginning of this daily message we included the message of December 17, 1993.

Another message given December 8, 1993 was the first message I ever received that was published. The date of publication of this first message is stated clearly on the message it is December 17, 1993. It was handed out at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center at the Friday night prayer service, December 17, 1993.

Many rosaries and meditations were received in the Rosary chapel at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center.

I ask you to include small pictures of all 15 Rosary Windows.

The Annunciation

The Visitation

The Birth of Our Lord

The Presentation of Our Lord in the Temple

The Finding of Our Lord in the Temple

The Agony in the Garden

The Scourging at the Pillar

The Crowning with Thorns

Jesus Carries His Cross

Jesus Dies on the Cross

The Resurrection

The Ascension

The Descent of the Holy Spirit

The Assumption of Our Lady into Heaven

The Coronation of Our Lady

This is where heaven chose for Mary to appear. The place is very holy, and Jesus and Mary want the prayers prayed there by the faithful. Please pray with us daily as we pray there.

I have been instructed to include a message here:

A Final Comment From Jesus

November 12, 1996  (excerpt from Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary)
Before the Exposed Eucharist

Jesus speaks: My dear, beloved ones, the windows in Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center are part of the Father's plan.

In praying the rosary, I am asking you to pray to the Holy Spirit and study the pictures in the windows of the mysteries of the rosary. I will reveal to you the insight into the mysteries of My life when you study the pictures. The chart of the position of the windows is important to your study.

Study the Annunciation in reference to the window directly across from it, the Assumption. Study the Visitation in reference to the Descent of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles. Study the Presentation in reference to the Resurrection and Crucifixion. These pictures were included here at the request of My Mother to help you live lives more like Our lives. Look at the pictures of the Annunciation and the Assumption together. See how Mary's life unfolded according to the Father's plan.

Oh, how I love you. Studying the windows provided here while you pray the rosary will help you to model your lives after Our lives.

This rosary book, Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, is very dear to My Most Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart of My Mother. Please use this book faithfully. I am giving to you abundant grace to grow more and more in union with Our Hearts when you use this book while praying the rosary.

This is a great Christmas gift for the world. Please be grateful and thank God for these revelations that I give to you. These are insights to take into Our Hearts.

I love you.


Messenger: Whether we are accepted by people or not, Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center is a place chosen by God for Mary, the Mother of God, to appear. This is Maryís house.

I wish to include a message given to me on Christmas December 25, 1994:

December 25, 1994

This is My Motherís House

Jesus speaks: This is My Motherís house. I was born in a stable. Her house is in need of repairs. So, too, are the hearts of men.

Messenger: Mary and Jesus will work in their hearts to restore the peace and harmony for which they were created.

Mary speaks: As this building, which has turned shabby, is restored, menís hearts will be restored here to the burning love of my Son.

Messenger: Take out the debris from your hearts, make them pure and restore them to vibrant life in Him.

Mary speaks: Your building will be restored more quickly the more you help to enkindle the love of my Son in their hearts. As the progress is slow, so, too, is the restoration slow. Circulate these letters of my Sonís love this day.

Messenger: Mary, Mother of God, on this feast help us to please Our Lord and do as He requests.

Mary speaks: My children,

I beg you to pray the prayers, the Shepherds of Christ Prayers and the Holy Spirit Novena, as my Son has requested.


IF AT ALL POSSIBLE PRAY AT 6:20 p.m. united as a body or at 6:20 a.m.

I love you,

Mary, your Mother.

October 1, 1996  (excerpt from Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary)

Jesus speaks: The Shepherds of Christ Movement will have centers of renewal.

As requested by My Mother, I am asking you to pray the rosary as a continued novena for the Movement. Pray, beginning this day, 27 days in petition, 27 days in thanksgiving for these requests given by My Mother June 17, 1996:

  1. For the spread of the rosary, circulation, and publication of these rosary meditations, for the rosary books and children's rosary books, for the rosary Aves and consecrations to be distributed and used by school children.
  2. For Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center.
  3. For the Shepherds of Christ centers, for the locations and funds, for the priestly mailing to establish chapters in the churches.

I am requesting that you continually pray this rosary novena from this day forth for these intentions. I am Jesus. I am giving My directions to you, My apostles, in these rosaries from Our Hearts. Please study the rosaries.

I am here and My Mother is here in a special way on the 13th of each month. I am giving to you abundant graces to grow closer to Our Hearts during this rosary. Whenever you use these rosaries, I will give you special graces to help you in this mission, My apostles. Open your hearts and let Me fill your soul with My love. I am alive. I am alive. I am alive, and I live in you. I am Jesus. I come to you with greatest love. Please read the message of Pentecost, 1996 and March 26, 1996 found in this book.

Messenger: For the rosary novena as requested by Jesus and Mary, we pray on the first day the Joyful Mysteries, on the second day the Sorrowful Mysteries, on the third day the Glorious Mysteries. Pray the rosary this way for 27 days in petition, and continue praying the rosary for 27 more days in thanksgiving. Jesus and Mary want us to continue this novena perpetually, 27 days in petition, 27 days in thanksgiving. Included is a chart to help you keep track on the back of the book. Please tell all members of the Shepherds of Christ Movement about this request of Jesus and Mary and circulate the prayer charts with the above message.

God has entrusted the peace of the world to Mary, she is the Queen of Peace. Mary appeared at Fatima in 1917. Mary's peace plan was given to Lucia as follows:

  1. Until a sufficient number of people have consecrated their hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, we will not have peace in the world.
  2. Mary has requested all to pray the daily rosary.
  3. We must observe the First Saturday devotion.
  4. We must make reparation to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

November 5, 1996  (excerpt from Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary)
Before the Exposed Eucharist

Messenger: Jesus told me He wanted this explanation in the Rosary Book.

The Father has told me that His plan will unfold despite all resistance. We are to carry out the life, death and resurrection of Jesus in our lives. We must meditate on the lives of Jesus and Mary to live His life.

It will become so difficult before the era of peace. One way that we will stay focused on Him is to meditate on His life as we pray the rosary.

Mary told St. Dominic that the rosary and the scapular will be great instruments in the salvation of the world.

Satan presses on our minds. We must discipline our thoughts. We must focus on God and not give into Satan who is constantly trying to torment our minds.

This is why Mary has asked us to pray three rosaries a day. We are constantly, all through the day, turning our thoughts to the mysteries of their lives. It is hard to get the three rosaries in, but by praying them, we are meditating on Christ's life. We cannot pray three rosaries fervently and not stay focused on Christ.

August 1, 1994

Messenger: The following is the first official message I received before the statue of Mary at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center. It is a personal message for Father Carter.

Mary (in front of the glowing statue of Our Lady of Sorrows): I am the Immaculate Heart. My Heart is glowing for love of all my beloved children. I am your most loving Mother. I am with you this day. Pray for the success of the priestly newsletter Shepherds of Christ. I am guarding your way. You will receive such graces to accomplish this task! Grace from God is so abundantly bestowed on you and will lead to the success of this endeavor! Pray for this cause at the Center. The priests will lead the people to the love of My beloved Son. This is no little task. It will take many prayers and graces. Pray hard, little one. Your prayers will change many hearts.

I am Mary, your Immaculate Mother. I bring this message to My beloved priest-son.

Question for married couples and others in intimate relationships:

Q: What can I do to help us be more united?
