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.

Messenger: My fellow members, apostles, leaders, handmaids & servants in the Shepherds of Christ,
There are so many untruths out there. Jesus is giving us these messages that men will know the truth. He is the Truth. He is telling us how He is. For generations man has lived on the earth interpreting things in certain ways. Man is not God, he has a fallen nature. He acts imperfectly.

God has given to us His holy Church. The Pope possesses the highest teaching authority in the Church.

The keys of the Church, so to speak, God gave to Peter and this lineage has been passed down from Pope to Pope. Priests have authority given from God, but they can act incorrectly. They must stay connected to the Pope, to the teaching authority in the Church.

Jesus speaks: I wish all apostles, those in the Movement, those helping in the Shepherds of Christ, to receive this message. You must stay rooted in the truth, this is the purpose of My mission, that men will absolutely speak the truth. As you expand and others from the far corners receive this message, you must realize that to help Me with My mission you must stay rooted in the truth. I have given you great grace and enkindled a fire in your hearts for love of Me. I have revealed Myself to you most intimately and you want to help reach the far corners of the earth. I want the material translated in the various languages, especially Spanish, but all words must be exact. The truth must be maintained in all writings.

You have not even begun to tap the information given in these messages that will be keys to giving greater insight into the Scriptures and writings I have given in the Church. In archives of these revelations there are hidden treasures that have not been released because they must be accurately discerned and carefully screened before publication. All materials published have been thus so carefully discerned as I have directed. This must be maintained. There are a total of ten Blue Books of which only three are published, there are additional journal books, Mass Books, Spouse of the Lamb material, apostles journals, handmaid and servant journals, there are hundreds and hundreds of rosary tapes wherein are locked treasures to help understand the Scriptures. Now I have given to you the daily messages. There are nine volumes of daily message books. I will continue to give messages in the rosaries on the 5ths & 13ths of every month and as I direct.

There have been so many hands helping to bring these writings to you, coupled with the writings for the Church I give in the priestly newsletter.

I do not wish any undiscerned material to circulate, unless as I direct. The validity of these writings must be maintained. I state here that I stand behind all published writings as My word to help in the renewal of the Church and the world.

All those who represent the Shepherds of Christ must adhere to the material published when they speak or circulate material. It will not be to My liking if any translations and/or views when presenting the school rosary program, materials given to priests or to people concerning the Shepherds of Christ Movement are mixed with personal theories and/or other visionaries' materials.

The material published can be extensively circulated and I desire this in a capacity that is available.

"We, as a Movement, Shepherds of Christ, must adhere strictly to the truth." This must be your motto. Tell all new apostles and handmaids and servants all that they must know to operate in the truth. This is My Movement to lead men to the truth.

Nothing here is to conflict with the Magisterium in the Church.

Materials that have not been discerned are not open for distribution or publication until properly discerned.

I do not want the Movement to deal with persons by controlling them. I want your lives given freely because you love Me. I want people to obey the requests I make because I am the Authority in the Movement, but I do not wish leaders to in any way coerce them. I want you to want to serve willingly in the job you have. There are millions, billions of people in the world. I give the 10 Commandments, I give My Word, I give the Church, I do not coerce men's free wills. I help them change many times by giving grace and allowing them to suffer illnesses or problems. I do not want leaders wanting a solution and ever using force. I want you to let the people respond willingly. I give all men a free will because I love them.

In the end men will willingly serve God, love God and love one another in the Reign of the Sacred Heart.

My desire now is your personal holiness and living according to God's will.

Men are not free to do as they wish, they are restricted by the 10 Commandments, My Word, the dictates of the Church. I speak of spiritual freedom, that which governs the soul. I give you a free will to choose to follow My rules.

This is how the Movement should be run. I ask you to do something. You are free to decline, I do not force you. I want you to want to serve Me in your heart.

I have chosen all of you with different talents and skills. All of you working together have affected millions of souls all over the earth and they in turn will affect millions more.

Oh, I love you so much.

My Mother says, "Thank you for responding to my call."

I say to you, "Thank you for responding to My call and giving your lives in service and prayer to serve the Lord."

I love you, Jesus.

Question for married couples and others in intimate relationships:

Q: How often can we go to Mass together each week? How does it make me feel to go to Mass with you?
