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.

God the Father speaks: I am the Father. I ask that the priestly newsletter be sent to all the priests in the world. It is the instrument My Son has given to this world to reach His beloved priests with the consecration.

I ask you to gaze on the image of your Mother on the Florida building. This gift is a gift I have allowed you to have, My beloved earth, because of My love for you.

I ask that the building where your Mother Mary appears be purchased and given to the Shepherds of Christ Ministries to promote the devotion to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary and to help lead to the completion of the Mission Mary began at Fatima. I wish this gift given to them free and clear to continue this work. Will you not respond? The world has not responded to Mary’s apparition in Florida.


Our Lady of Fatima in the Americas

Messenger: The priestly newsletter presently goes to about 70,000 priests in the world in English and Spanish free of charge. It goes to many foreign countries. Many bishops use it for their dioceses.

The mailing expenses alone are costly, over and above the printing expenses. To send the United States mailing, postage alone is about $6,000. To send the international mailing, postage is about $8,000.


The rent of Mary’s Image Building is tremendous. We have leased the building for 16 months now.

Mary has never appeared in a permanent image as this ever before in the history of the world. There is only one other permanent image to my knowledge -- Our Lady of Guadalupe.

As big as the world is, is there not one soul or many who could contribute funds so we could keep such a gift from God to do the work that Our Lady of Fatima in the Americas and Jesus have called us to do?

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.

December 19, 1996  Message from Mary

Mary speaks: "My dear children, I give to you my Son Jesus, born in a stable in Bethlehem on Christmas morn. He is the Almighty God, the Light of the World.

I appear to you, my children, on a (former) bank in Florida. You have made money your god! Do you know how cold are your hearts? You turn away from my Son, Jesus, for your money. Your money is your god.

I am Mary, your Mother. I do not appear as I once appeared to you. I am asking you today to circulate my message given on a tape on the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, December 12, 1996. Please circulate this tape now. Give it to as many people as you can. I am Mary, your Mother. Please circulate my Rosary Book."

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: Mary appeared to me about 500 times and people did not respond.

She then appeared on the building in Clearwater, Florida.

Will you help us?

October 29, 1999 - Nursing Home Message - Second Message

Mary speaks: My children, My Son was born in a little stable in Bethlehem.

I appear on the building in Clearwater, Florida, and I am ignored.

I wish the Shepherds of Christ to have the building for the work I began at Fatima and to pray for the priests as my Son, Jesus, has requested. The Shepherds of Christ Movement is to help renew the Church and the world.

I wish you to meditate on these Joyful Mysteries.

Messenger: When visiting a nursing home this is a plan you can follow to pray a little part of the rosary with the elderly or sick residents.

What is usually done and tolerated by the elderly folks is one Our Father, five Hail Mary's and another Our Father. The song, A Song from Jesus, can be sung before and after these prayers.

It is desirable to have a big picture of the Annunciation when doing these meditations. Also it is recommended that you have pictures of the Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Excerpt from February 1, 1995 rosary, "The Annunciation" from Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary

The Annunciation

1.  Messenger: The Angel Gabriel appeared to Mary and asked her to be the mother of Jesus.

2.  Messenger: Mary always complied with the Will of the Father. She said, "…let it happen to me as you have said." (Lk 1:38)

4.  Messenger: There was always great intimacy between Jesus and His mother. From the first moment of conception she felt the life of Jesus, Son of God, grow within her womb.

5.  Messenger: The child Jesus is with us this day. He is in our brothers. He is in our children. If the child Jesus were here and we were to hold Him, to talk to and be with Him, we would treat Him with such joy and such kindness! Jesus is in our brothers. Jesus is in our children. Jesus is here this day. Do we treat our brothers, our children, one another, with the same kindness that we would the child Jesus?

9.  Messenger: It was in the womb of the Blessed Virgin Mary that the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus was formed. Jesus took on our human nature out of great love for us.

Question for married couples and others in intimate relationships:

Q:  How do we feel we can do this daily dialogue for 10 minutes of writing and 10 minutes of intimate sharing?
