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.

January 22, 1999 

Messenger: I came to Florida to be here for the blessing of the crucifix, and I looked at Him as He hung there on the 20 foot-high block of wood. I saw a block of wood formed crudely into the body of Jesus and it was definitely formed like His Body, but it had so much work to be done on it to have it perfectly as the body I saw December 5, 1996, hanging from the cross.

And it was revealed to me this morning January 22, 1999, that we are like this body on the cross. We were formed as babies into a beautiful human body in the womb of our mother. The Creator breathed life into us and thus our body was formed by His hands, each person uniquely formed by His hands, but He used our mother’s body to form us.

Mary is our spiritual Mother. God looks at us and He sees us and He wants us to dwell most perfectly with Him for all eternity. We are under formation here. The place is the womb of the Immaculate Virgin, her Immaculate Heart. So much work to be done on us, we are so rough around the edges. His grace permeates our soul and we become more and more formed in His image and likeness.

The Virgin takes us into His fiery Heart and there we dwell in deepest union with our all-perfect God. The Father is one with Jesus and the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit intently works in the womb of the Virgin to sanctify us. Mary is the spouse of the Holy Spirit. Jesus' little Body was formed in her physical womb by the power of the Holy Spirit. Union with our beloved Jesus leads us to the Father in the Holy Spirit. For all eternity we will be possessed by God.

Here we are a crude block of wood. He is the carpenter. Read June 12, 1994. He molds us and fashions us and we become more and more formed into that image and likeness of Him. I saw Him dead on the cross on December 5, 1996, about 13 days before Mary appeared on the building. His mouth was moving and He was in anguishing pain at the point of death because no one was listening.

I remember the message of December 20, 1993, (Blue Book I), January 27, 1994, (Blue Book II), March 1, 1994, (Blue Book II). Knocking, He woke me. After the collapsed building, the Falmouth farm, the appearance of Mary on the building, I give you the picture of Father Carter July 2, 1996. He is a pillar of light. I give you the message that followed July 4, 1996.

Father Carter appeared as a pillar of light.

July 4, 1996

This message was received before a live statue of the Sorrowful Mother after Communion.

Message from Jesus: "Peace will abound when nations, churches, families and individuals are consecrated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary."
"Fr. Carter is a pillar of light to the dark world. This is the explanation of the photo. It is through him, I will turn darkness to light. Circulate this message with the picture. Encourage all to consecrate their hearts to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Sacred Heart of Jesus, to join the Shepherds of Christ Chapters, and the Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus Movement to pray for your Church and your world. This is My Movement for renewal of the Church and the world, based in consecration, joining your every act to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, praying the rosary, and making reparation to Our Hearts, especially on First Fridays and First Saturdays. It is through your prayers and sacrifices many souls will be helped to be saved. Grace will flow from those whose hearts are consecrated to Our Hearts and the fire of My Love will light up this darkened world."

As you look at the picture, you see Fr. Carter's arm and hand on your left. This picture of Fr. Carter was taken July 2, 1996 at the Tuesday Shepherds of Christ Meeting at Tom Arlinghaus' Farm.

Messenger: I give you the Message to the Earth January 22, 1998.

A message for the Earth from Jesus
January 22, 1998

I am the Good Shepherd, these are My prayers, the prayers I give to help renew the Church and the world, all prayer chapters are asked to include these prayers (found in the Shepherds of Christ Prayer Manual). As My Apostles and Shepherds I ask you to encourage all existing Chapters to try to encourage all existing prayer groups to pray the Shepherds of Christ prayers. Encourage all Churches to pray these prayers. It is most urgent that the people of this earth concur with the Father's wishes to begin Prayer Chapters. This is an urgent request from the Good Shepherd. The flock will become one when they have given their hearts to Jesus and Mary. Encourage all priests to pray the Shepherds of Christ prayers. Your world will be lighted with great light as the people of this earth pray these prayers.

My promise is this to you My beloved earth: When you give your heart to Me and spread the devotion to My Sacred Heart, I will write your name In My Heart. I promise to give the greatest graces when you pray these prayers for renewal of the Church and the world and take all who pray them deeply into My Heart. The prayers I give will bring about the reign of My Sacred Heart and the triumph of Mary's Immaculate Heart. I am Jesus Christ, this is My message of January 22, 1998, Please circulate this message to your world. I am the Good Shepherd, I know Mine and Mine know Me and they follow Me. Grace My Shepherds, I will give you the greatest graces for spreading these words to this earth and to your Church. I love you, I am Jesus Christ, the Son of Man, it is the Plan of the Father that Prayer Chapters are begun immediately and the Priestly Newsletter is given to all priests. The Voice of the Good Shepherd speaks through it.

Messenger: I wish you would envision our Lord at the point of death as I saw Him December 5, 1996. See the weakened body, see the body of a full size Man in anguishing pain, see a Man dying on the cross, nailed to the cross by our sins.

I heard Him call out on February 23, 1994, so strong. He was shouting (Blue Book II), "I died for you, I died for you, what more do you want?" And that same day He gave the City of Light message, A City on a Hill Shines to the World. He ended the shouting message with, "Priests will create little cities, little cities in each church to spread the light of Christ to this sick world."

We hang from our crosses like blocks of wood. To walk in the steps of the Savior is to follow His lead. We must come willingly. He loved us to His death. What is love if we are not free? He gave us a free will to choose life, to follow Him, to love Him and one another. In the Reign of the Sacred Heart all will willingly serve God. Instead of talking of football and other sports, news that is very evil, movies leading souls to hell, we will talk of Jesus. What will He have to do to get our attention? How will He help us to bend our stubborn wills?

Messenger: I wish the picture of the front cover, "A Gift, a Warning, and a Solution", be presented here and the back cover afterward.

June 18, 1998, Jesus speaks: Oh please, My children, help Me for my wrath blazes above the buildings you have built and in one second I could destroy your earth with fire, but the Lady of Love (Mary) holds Me from you. But my hand is now raised and I do not act because of your prayers My holy ones.

June 28, 1998, Jesus speaks:  The fires in Florida are a way that the Father has allowed this earth to be chastised for ignoring their Mother appearing on the building in Clearwater. They have their heads buried in the sand and do not even come to be awakened to the fact that God is speaking to them. Pray for the state of Florida. If they ignore the Mother any longer, your world is on a fine line. I am the Almighty God.

SOLUTION - we must pray

  1. Forming prayer chapters centered in consecration to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary praying for the priests, the Church and the world.
  2. Pray the Rosary
  3. Make reparation to God for our sins.
  4. Observe the First Saturday devotion.


 Rosary Book

Messenger: I am a messenger. The children at Fatima were messengers. They were jailed. This blocked one vision of Our Lady from taking place on the usual date of the 13th.

I am warning the earth. This is a message, we must turn from our evil ways and pray as He has instructed, and obey the Lady of Fatima.

Peace will come, the Sacred Heart of Jesus will Reign and Mary’s Immaculate Heart will triumph. We have much to do to be formed more and more into His image and likeness.

Jesus speaks: The cross next to My Mother’s image as it stands today is an example of the work that must be done on you. My world and My Church are in need of renewal. Unless men change their wills and willingly serve God, they will reach a sorry end. Consecration to Our Hearts will help men to live according to the Father’s will. In Our Hearts, they are formed more and more into My image and likeness.

Come to Me, I long to take you to the depth of My Heart, a fiery furnace of endless divine love.

I loved you to My death on the cross.

I am with you today, pray fervently for your Church and your world and the Shepherds of Christ Movement.
