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.

October 25, 1998

Jesus speaks: The devil comes with lack of peace, to disturb your spirit within. My way is peace and love.

I have formed a community of lay people praying intently for the priests and the renewal of the Church and the world. Some live in community life, some commute and live and work and pray with their families. All are joined by a special bond through consecration in one mind and one heart, united to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass throughout the world, united in hourly prayer and dwelling in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. I have called apostles, associates, prayer apostles, handmaids, servants, apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus. There is also the plan to begin a community of priests. This Movement prays intently for the needs of priests and reaches out to priests around the world with the priestly newsletter. The Movement strives to establish prayer chapters throughout the world. The focus is the priestly newsletter and the prayer chapters. The Movement tries to reach Church, school and family with its mission in the hope that all souls on earth will give their hearts to Jesus and Mary, and live to love God and one another.

I intend that this Movement, the Shepherds of Christ Movement, help bring about the completion of the mission My Mother began at Fatima.

My children I write to you of love, I write to you of peace, I write to you of My ways. Your world has contaminated the hearts of so many through very unloving ways. I wish to reach them that they will know the true meaning of love.

I have given the writings through the priestly newsletter and messages given to My messenger. I wish all to read this material as one body of knowledge. There is a book of the first twelve priestly newsletters written by Fr. Edward J. Carter, theologian and author of more than 17 books who has dedicated his life to the spiritual life. He has written a book that is a cornerstone to loving response to God's love. It is entitled Response to God's Love. This book has been used for over 15 years of his teaching career at Xavier University in Cincinnati, Ohio, U.S.A. He has taught there for over 30 years.

God the Father speaks: I knew you before you were conceived in your mothers' wombs. You have been given special gifts and talents to help to bring about the reign of My Son's Sacred Heart in all hearts and the triumph of your Mother Mary's Immaculate Heart. My tainted children of Eve, I have given you the New Adam and the New Eve that your hearts will be transformed more and more into the image and likeness of God as you dwell most abundantly in Their Hearts and receive My Son Jesus in the Eucharist. He is the Bread of Life. God feeds you in the reception of the Eucharist and through His holy Word. Both are the Bread of Life.

Oh My little children, it is so simple. God gives you life. You share most abundantly in His divine life in a special way in the reception of the Sacraments. You are first given this great sharing through Baptism.

Oh My little children, to the merest children I will reveal the mysteries of the Kingdom, but My children you must live as the children of Mary. She is the Lady of Light, it is through her Immaculate Heart, her spiritual womb, that you are led to My Son Jesus. He is the Light of this world.

On December 17, 1996, I allowed the miraculous vision of the Lady Clothed with the Sun to be made known to the world. On Christmas crowds flocked to the image. I have given this great gift to your world, the crowds have faded and the people soon have returned home. I ask you to publicize in any way possible this site of the Lady's Apparition in Florida, so that this site will help bring the world into oneness through consecration to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. I wish a gigantic crucifix to be unveiled on this Dec. 17, 1998, if at all possible and the crowds to be beneath the image. They are to sing praise to God before this crucifix. I wish My messenger to be present and as many Shepherds of Christ people as is possible. I wish prayer manuals, priestly newsletters and books and tapes to be distributed. I wish the Rosary Books to be made readily available and tapes of rosaries produced in Florida. I wish the message books from the site in Florida to be ready and distributed.

I wish this day to be publicly announced and made known to as many as possible.

I wish this announcement to say:

We pray for priests and the renewal of the Church and the world.

This day must be a day to draw souls into consecration. Beginning this day men will be asked to consecrate their hearts every day, that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, will be brought forth on Christmas Day and be alive in their hearts. Every day from that day to Christmas and after Christmas, I ask Shepherds of Christ people to stay and distribute materials, as is possible.

It should be advertised on the announcement that this period before Christmas is a special time to come and receive graces, for special graces will be given. I wish the primary focus to be to promote the priestly newsletter, the prayers, the rosary and Rosary Books, pamphlets and tapes, Rosary Aves, etc. I wish all to pray the rosary. I wish the second priestly newsletter book to be finished and distributed by this time or soon afterward if possible.

I am the Father, this is My Christmas gift to the world: My Son Jesus hanging on the cross, Mary, your Mother appearing to lead the world to the light.

I wish gigantic candle rosaries to be held every night before the crucifix and the image, with hand-held candles, as a procession for Christmas. These may be candles in little jars. I wish the meeting on Dec. 17, 1998, to be at 6:30 p.m. with candles, and small services with songs at 12:00 noon and 3:00 p.m. The main service will be with candlelight at 6:30 p.m.

Ask Felix to do the crucifix. I love you. I am the Father.
