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.
January 20, 1999
Messenger: I spent my life being a housewife, a mother, a teacher
of mathematics and one who plays music at church.
Jesus speaks: From the day you were conceived in your mother's
womb I have formed you for this mission to help lead souls to the burning love of My
You were born to bear great fruit for My Kingdom.
You were commissioned in Baptism to do so.
There is such a profound unity in the life of the soul, but they see
bits and pieces, days, nights, years. From the beginning of the soul, through the life of
the soul on earth and for all eternity, the purpose is to be possessed by God. To be one,
existent in Him, to reach a high level of personal holiness, to be more perfected as your
heavenly Father is perfect. The time you spend on this earth is but a very short part of
your existence, but most important to the destination of the soul.
Messenger: God creates a soul with its greatest satisfaction to
be in that state of intense union with God in which the soul is elevated, permeated by His
life, existent in Him, in which He possesses the soul and the soul longs for nothing, for
the person is content and satisfied in Him.
The perfect foot for the perfect shoe. But this almost seems
disrespectful to say it as such, for it is so much more for a soul to be existent so
completely in the all-perfect God.
And so we live our lives here always wanting more, always wanting this
state. Our souls will be satisfied and complete only in Him. In the ecstasies, especially
December 15, 1995, I know to a heightened level this completeness. It is as living in a
parched and barren desert land here, knowing Him and this experience in which He permeates
my soul and His presence fills me, in which I am elevated to the highest heights in my
human nature, being existent in a heightened level in Him.
Oh the gift, that God wants to possess our souls! How dishonorable it is
that man stamps his feet over trivial matters and wants his way and rejects the gift of
God's love, that we treat the Eucharist and the Sacraments the way we do, when God, the
all-powerful, Almighty, Divine God, gives us this sharing in His divine life through the
life of grace.
All the pleasures of the earth not in accord with God's will leave a
bitter taste in our mouths, since our souls were fashioned and molded by the Creator to be
possessed by God. God alone will satisfy. And to partake in sin, which distances a soul
from God, leaves the soul in a very sorry state of affairs. Momentary pleasure, not
according to God's will, puts the starving soul in a worsened condition.
Since the Son of God out of great love came to the earth, took on flesh,
gave His life on the cross, should we be surprised that today with such sin in the world
He cries out to the souls for whom He shed His Blood? And He appeared December 5, 1996,
with His mouth moving without a sound being heard.
I saw Him in the anguishing pains of death, and in the exertion of moving His mouth, He gave this message:
Jesus speaks: "I speak and you do not hear. I appear with My
mouth moving without a sound, for no one is listening."
Messenger: But the horror of the sight and what I experienced interiorly to see Him, haunts my soul. For I saw the extent to which He would go to save souls.
Swords penetrated my heart to see Him there and the sorrow is in my
But my beloved brothers, the other side of the coin is the transfigured
Lord I saw in the front of the church in the Sacred Heart statue on January 9, 10, 11,
1996, at the beginning of that year. It was after completion of the Mass Book, December 31, 1995, and it was the
beginning of a great year of victory for the Shepherds of Christ Movement, 1996. I saw Him
transfigured before my eyes.
We would experience the three great visions in 1996, one concerning
Father Carter, March 26, 1996, one on Holy Saturday and one in Easter week. These will be
discussed on another occasion. As Our Lord directs me, I write as He wishes.
The year of 1996, would have its usual blocks by the evil one. Once
again we were driven from Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center. In 1995, we were sent away
after the September 5, 1995 rosary. We were told to pray Hail Mary's and Our Father's and
that messages were not allowed to be received.
Mary quit appearing daily there at 6:30 p.m. because of the decision.
It was the Tuesday before the Feast of the Sorrowful Mother which was on
a Friday that year. Every Friday at 12:00 noon, Jesus gave tender rosaries of His love.
I woke on the Feast of the Sorrowful Mother after months of meeting on
Friday at 12:00 noon, and I began to cry because I was not permitted to pray there (Our
Lady of the Holy Spirit Center).
Jesus made it very clear that because of the rejection and the fact we
were not permitted to receive messages there, He did not wish me to return there at that
On the Feast of the Sorrowful Mother my heart was torn because I wanted
to see her that day. I started to cry and Jesus told me to watch the video of September 5,
1995, our last rosary with messages. To my amazement and joy upon watching it, the pink
mist began to go over Mary at the beginning of the song I Love You Jesus and it ended several Hail Mary's
later with the same song. This video is available. It was nothing like I see mystically in
an apparition, but it was a beautiful sight to my wailing eyes.
At this time I was told to pray at Holy Cross - Immaculata Church rather
than at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center. I was disheartened at first and suffering
deeply, as one reads in the beginning of the Mass
Book 1995. The writings in the Mass Book
record the journey of this period. At that time my child and I struggled and struggled to
get the first tape out. The devil seemed to block everything we did. At long last October
1, 1995, the first tape was made. This audio tape records the Mary mist experience before
the Sorrowful Mother on September 5, 1995, at a Shepherds of Christ prayer meeting.
We would be asked to return to the Holy Spirit Center December 12, 1995,
the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe.
The first 9 months the Lady appeared at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit
Center, the Sorrowful Mother statue was located in the back of the main rosary chapel. In
March of 1995, they moved her. She had appeared to me daily there since July 5, 1994.
Jesus told me exactly how long to stay in the chapel. Jesus and Mary wanted us there on March 21, 1995, (rosary is in Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary Book).
He wanted us praying there before the Pieta. The following Tuesday we were told to pray
there also at our Shepherds of Christ meeting. Mary appeared every day in that main rosary
chapel almost nine months, about the same amount of days of a normal pregnancy. The people
there wanted us to move to the Sorrowful Mother chapel on the 21st of March and Jesus
said, "no". If we would have moved, we would have cut short that nine month
period. I didn't realize that the birth of the Shepherds of Christ Movement centered so
around the core group that met there every Tuesday as Our Lord had instructed us to meet
from the beginning.
On March 30, 1995, I received the
rosary which is in the book, Rosaries from the Heart
of Jesus and Mary, p. 99.
It was the only time I ever heard Mary sound angry. The messages were
given so strong. She appeared for at least two hours in such magnificence.
She said children would suffer. There were only three of us present.
Mary said in the rosary that we should pray this rosary.
Jesus said later that we should circulate it to all the
souls of the earth.
About April 19, 1995, a big building collapsed out west and many
children were hurt.
I must return to my original story. We were told we couldn't receive
messages at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center September 12, 1995, by two members of the
lay discernment board. This was after Mary had appeared daily for 14 months.
We left the Center on that Feast of Our Sorrowful Mother and returned on
the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe December 12, 1995, when we had the first meeting there
When they decided to move the Sorrowful Mother Statue from the main
chapel, they put a mosaic of Our Lady of Guadalupe in her place. I found this very
interesting, since we returned on that feast in 1995.
We continued to meet monthly at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center and I
was allowed to receive messages as long as a priest was present. On the Feast of Our Lady
of Guadalupe December 12, 1995, Father Carter could not be there so Father Kenney came
At some point the Holy Spirit Center decided that we could come back
As of March 26, 1996, we were still meeting some of the time at Our Lady
of the Woods.
I felt as Mary and Joseph did, looking for a place in the inn, for we
went to several places to have our meetings until we settled at Our Lady of the Woods
before the tabernacle.
Our Blessed Mother always requested the rosaries be held before the
tabernacle. Sometimes we were unable to meet her wishes.
Again, we began to meet weekly at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center and
in the main chapel. Immediately Satan began to work to get us out of the main chapel. One
person made a strong complaint because of certain circumstances, and we were soon moved
from the tabernacle to the Sorrowful Mother Chapel again.
We were there until the middle of June. At Our Lady of the Holy Spirit
Center, severe restrictions were put on messages of private revelation.
On June 17, 1996, I was preparing for the Blue Book meeting at my house that evening, which would
have prayers and a rosary from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, and one of the persons
blocking us called and said we could not pray at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center.
Our next meeting would be the next day. We were advised that the
agreement was not with this particular person and we would abide by the original
On the 20th of June 1996, Jesus told us to ask Tom Arlinghaus if we
could meet at his farm on June 25, 1996.
On June 25, 1996, we met for the first time at Tom Arlinghaus' farm.
This date was the anniversary of Lucia's vision (Fatima visionary) of
June 25, 1929.
But waters became rough there, too. We left Our Lady of the Holy Spirit
Center and met at Tom's farm, but the devil tried to stop us from meeting there also.
Mary hadn't spoke in a rosary for a long time, perhaps since February
1996, at least not as she used to speak in the rosaries. Jesus and Mary both spoke, then
from about February 1996, I don't believe Mary spoke at Shepherds of Christ core group
rosaries very much any more.
She did give a very strong rosary April
25, 1996, to the Junior Shepherds. This is in the Apostles Manual, p. 327-331.
Mary gave a strong message August 13, 1996. She had appeared the whole
night of August 12, 1996, at the Holy Spirit Center and for two hours the morning of
August 13, 1996. She also appeared in a magnificent vision right before I went to Tom's
farm for our prayer meeting. At this meeting August 13, 1996, two people saw an angel.
They also saw a blue light around our president. Dan came for the first time to Tom's farm
Mary then gave the message August 27, 1996, at Tom's farm that appears
on the Mary Message tape that I was told to make
on the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe December 12, 1996, 5 days before Mary appeared on
the building in Clearwater, Florida.
Mary'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.
Song: O Lady of Light, shining so bright, be with us this day, guiding our way, O Lady, O Lady of Light.
Mary speaks: I appear to you as Our Mother of Sorrows.
Messenger: What followed was a rapid growth in the Movement
through the installment of our President, John W., and through the beginning of prayer
meetings on the 13th of each month.
Jesus called the meetings of the 13th as a powerful instrument in
bringing about the Reign of His Sacred Heart.
The Apostles Manual began,
big mailings began to go out to the membership, and on December 5, 1996, Jesus appeared
dying on the cross. After Mary had appeared on the 5ths since July 5, 1994, almost 2 1/2
years, Jesus appeared on the 5th of December.
We had to go from place to place with our Shepherds of Christ meetings
and the Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.
On December 17, 1996, Mary was noticed on the building in Clearwater,
We bought our first Shepherds of Christ Center at Morrow, Ohio, and it
was consecrated to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary on December 8, 1996.
The events of December 19, 22, and the All-night
Message December 29th, are described in the Apostles Manual.
I speak here as He has instructed me of the events of 1995 - 1996.
We do not deal with individual persons who have blocked us, nor do we
say they did evil deeds. We delivered messages that were ignored and were not obeyed.
This does not alter the fact God wishes them to be obeyed.
At one point when Mary appeared daily, a man said something to this
effect, "Why do you keep going in there, no one believes, or no one is going to the
I said, "If Mary were appearing to you, would you care what people
They analyzed the Blue Books
and said Jesus wouldn't talk like this and a priest asked me, "Don't you care what
people are saying?" I told him, "I am hearing God talk. I am not going to change
what He tells me because of the people."
Anyone who has seen the movie, The Prince of Egypt, realizes
I know what God says to me, I act from what He says. I go to man. Man
questions and thinks and tries to decide.
I won't change God's story or what He tells me to deliver because of the
I see it from His point of view.
When Moses came down from the mountain with the 10 Commandments he threw
the tablets on the ground because they were worshipping an idol. He knew God and what He
told him. He did not go to the men and reason with them. God used him to deliver the Ten
They jailed the Fatima visionaries August 13, 1917.
The man at Ninevah delivered a message.
I cannot live in good conscience with myself and change the messages of
I deliver the message, all can act according to their own wills. I still
must deliver the message. I cannot give an account of the events of January 20, and 21,
1996, here today. I had great revelations on oneness and the Mass on this date.
I write this information as accurately as possible. It took me about 1
1/2 hours, for He has embedded the events in my soul to be released to you His holy
We were made to be possessed by God. All of us He created with special talents to partake in the mission here on earth. The more we live according to His will, the more we truly see the individual created by God emerge. We were created to be distinctly His, acting immensely in our beautiful uniqueness.
Q: When I feel tired and hungry, how can I continue to be loving to you?
