I appear my children on this former bank building in Florida, Our Lady Clothed with the Sun.

December 17, 1998

Jesus speaks: I wish great devotion to Our Lady of Guadalupe from the site in Florida.

I wish the original picture as depicted on the tilma to be displayed, pictures and prints made available from the site, so that people can purchase these pictures at a reasonable price and have them in their homes. I wish holy cards and priests' vestments to be made available with this image.

I wish priests' vestments be made available with the two images as given on Father Carter's vestment.

I wish these two pictures of Mary as the Spouse of the Lamb and the picture on the Prayer for Union with Jesus to be made available.

This is the picture of the Sacred Heart I wish to be promoted to lead the priests into My Heart.

Other pictures to be used for devotion to Our Hearts are the picture from Don as on the front of the prayer manual and the picture used in the front of Blue Book I.

I wish the picture of Lucia's vision be made into posters and holy cards and circulated for use in prayer and when reading the messages.

I wish the image above the altar in China, Indiana, to be made available on posters and holy cards. This picture of Calvary will help many to identify with Our pure Hearts in the Mass. This picture and the picture of Lucia will help to lead souls into great union with God in the Mass. They may at some point be used in the priestly newsletter in color, if it is possible, or in black and white, or the tones of the newsletter. The Lucia picture should be displayed at some point in the newsletter with writing concerning the outpouring of grace and mercy in the Mass from the hands of consecrated priests.

I wish posters to be made available of Father Carter holding up the Host as it appears on the Mass Book. I further wish posters of Mary's Image on the building be made available.

I wish a new picture with the completed crucifix and Mary's Image be taken and this to be displayed in all forms so that men will venerate this crucifix. I will give tremendous grace to all praying the Shepherds of Christ prayers and the rosary before these images in candle rosaries. Special graces are connected to this crucifix and the image of Mary. I wish the completed crucifix to be blessed by Father Carter as soon as possible.

I wish that vestments and chalices, all materials for priests and Masses be available from the store in Florida.

Mary speaks: I wish posters and pictures of the image be made available. I wish you to lead the children to this site in Florida to see my image.

Jesus speaks: I wish this image to be on shirts, candles, booklets, etc. to lead souls to this place.

I wish them to come to this place as a shrine, to pray and to spread these materials of consecration to the world.

I wish all issues of the priestly newsletter be made available by the priests' store and tapes of the newsletter and disks be made available with Father Carter reading the newsletter. It is very important that the prayer manuals, newsletters etc., be made available for the priests.

I wish the vestments to be made available in all styles and colors, the focus of many of these to be on the Eucharist, and the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

I also wish pictures of Me as Source of Divine Mercy be made available (picture as given to Sr. Faustina) . I wish the focus of this gift shop to be only on what I have told you.

You must only promote this material or as directed in messages.

You have a special mission to promote devotion to the Blessed Sacrament. Monstrances and all the ware needed for this should be made available.

The books used in the celebration of the Mass, and Missals, Bibles and the Catechism must be made available.

You must pray for the funds to begin this endeavor.

Your main focus is the priestly newsletter, and praying for priests, the Church and the world.

Messenger After Communion: I see a glow around the candles, so hard to explain, golden and solidly transparent, almost as wide as the squatty little candle here in a slightly tapered fashion. I do not even know how to describe it, for it is mystical and it is like nothing I have ever seen. It is a glow, but it is solidly there. I write this, for I know there is some significance. On August 5, (1996, I believe the date is 1996) I know it was a 5th, I was consumed with the fire of His love after the reception of the Eucharist and the candle top flew off as we prayed at Mass. It was a very heavy brass, circular ring, very wide and it was as if a shot of fire came from beneath it and it flew from the corner of the altar with this stream of fire that sizzled to the place where the Host had been consecrated in the center of the altar, leaving a deposit of wax.

Today at Mass I was consumed with the love of God, so deeply feeling His desire to want souls to be saved. I cried, because I so deeply wanted to unite in that Holy Sacrifice to help save souls and bring about the Reign of the Sacred Heart and triumph of Mary's Heart. In these deep mystical experiences I cannot describe the events that occur, for there is this opening into heaven and I experience the Mass deeply in Their Hearts. I know so intently the desire of Our Lady to want to reach her precious little children, and she is crying out to us to help her. In her Immaculate Heart and Jesus' Sacred Heart, I see the vision of Lucia before me and although I am a sinner, I beg that I can unite to Them in this Holy Sacrifice and be used as an instrument to help in my intercession through Mary's pure Heart so that great grace will be released.

Oh, I write day after day and I want to partake more and more deeply in the Mass, the Holy Sacrifice, in order to plead for the souls of the earth.

Help me. Study the vision of Lucia, 1929, and see yourself kneeling as Lucia did before the altar and pray with all your hearts and souls that priests will be holy priests with consecrated hearts celebrating the Mass. Then the flood gates of heaven will open and grace will be outpoured so abundantly as never before on the souls of the earth.

I unite in His holy Heart so intimately and I love the souls of the earth so deeply. I love Him so deeply, I beg Him, THY KINGDOM COME, THY WILL BE DONE on EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN. I want God to be loved and honored and obeyed and thanked and worshipped.

A perfect match, designed by the Creator--- souls needing God and God loving them so much.


Mary speaks: I stood beneath the cross of my Son and I cried out from the depth of my Heart.

My children, on this December 17, 1998, I cry out to you on this anniversary from Clearwater, Florida.

I stood beneath the cross of my Son.

I appear, I appear, I appear, I do not appear as I once did, I appear here on the building. Help me to reach the priests and my other little children I love from my site in Florida. I cry out to you. Help me, my children, help me to reach the Church and the world.

Please spread the priestly newsletter and the prayers of the Good Shepherd to the Church and the world. (Shepherds of Christ Prayer Manual)

Please consecrate your hearts and pray the rosary.

Please pray the prayers (Shepherds of Christ Prayer Manual) and the rosary at 6:30 p.m. daily.

Come to my Image Building in Florida, I will teach the world to pray from the heart.

Help me, you must consecrate your hearts to my Son and to me.

Please help me reach the world from this site. I am Our Lady of Guadalupe, Our Lady of Fatima in the Americas, Our Lady Clothed with the Sun, I am Mary, your Mother from Clearwater, Florida.
