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.

December 3, 1999 - A Message from Mary

Our Lady of Grace


Mary speaks: My little children, You must ask yourselves what would most please Jesus. Base your actions on this. He is your Spouse and you want to please Him.

I am Mary, your Mother


Messenger: On First Friday, December 3, 1999, Feast of St. Francis Xavier, Jesus said, "They do not even understand how they offend Me."

Mary speaks: Young people with "ugly" dress.

My children that dress to lure others to sin.

My children, do you think such dress pleases Jesus?

My children, how do you dress your lives? How do you "put on" things or do things that make yourself happy, but are opposed to Jesus' will?

The real handmaid of the Lord gives His life in loving surrender to please Jesus. Oh children, He loves you so much!

Jesus speaks: They do not even see when they are not humble, but focused on themselves and power and position. How it offends Me.

I want you to obey.

I want you to come in My name.

You act as My spouse to please Me.

Oh, do not focus on your brothers’ faults when I am telling you to look inside.

So you feel threatened today, do you, you find another person and project your feelings of insecurity on them. I do not want you to look for a prey to be rescued.

Everyone must do interior work. I want you to be one body.

Pray for your persecutors.

The more you do My will (the will of My Father) in love, the more I will love you.

Messenger: On First Friday, December 6, 1996, before the Movement was so strong and united, Jesus gave me the following message in the Apostles Manual. Now 3 years later, here it is:

First Friday - December 6, 1996

Jesus: I am calling you as a family. You will be joined in one heart, acting as My Heart beating in this world. All the apostles in the Shepherds of Christ Movement are joined in one Heart.

R. The core leaders will contact the coordinators. The coordinators will contact the individual apostles. All are apostles with a job directed by Jesus to do. Her peace plan was given at Fatima:

  1. Until a sufficient number of people have consecrated their hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, we will not have peace in the world.
  2. Mary has requested all to pray the daily rosary.
  3. We must observe the Five First Saturday devotion:
    - Communion, confession (within 8 days before or after the Saturday), recital of the rosary, meditating for 15 minutes on the mysteries of the rosary. All this is to be done in spirit of reparation.
  4. We must make reparation to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

His plan centers around this.

We have heads functioning in the individual ministries. Everything we do leads to consecration of hearts. As the apostles press on the three institutions, the Church, family, and school to help spread the consecration, the strayed ones will be led home to His Heart.

Mary said at Fatima until a sufficient number of people have consecrated their hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, we will not have peace in the world.

The present condition of the world

Peace will come when hearts are hearts of love. The scales must shift. It will happen through the consecration. Mary's peace plan: until a sufficient amount of people consecrate their hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, we will not have peace.

The Father looks to the earth; He sees much darkness.

Image3.gif (1823 bytes)

The Father looks to the earth. There are few hearts fervently in love with God. The hearts of love light up the earth. It is as lights on a Christmas tree. It is sparsely lighted by a few hearts. Therefore, the tree looks dark.

Image4.gif (2641 bytes)

As the Shepherds of Christ Movement spreads (as well as other movements focused on spreading consecration to Their Hearts) the tree is covered with more hearts and the earth becomes more lighted.

The tree is covered with hearts consecrated to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. The tree is illuminated.

As the Shepherds of Christ apostles spread the consecration to the Church, the family, and the school, the tree is covered with lights and the earth is covered with the fire of His love.

The Father looks to the earth now. He is displeased with the hearts of men. The Father wants us to love God and love each other. He wants us to live according to His will in love.

Mary appears at Fatima. She tells us that we are offending God. She tells us what we must do. Mary's peace plan:

  1. Until a sufficient number of people have consecrated their hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, we will not have peace in the world.
  2. Mary has requested all to pray the daily rosary.
  3. We must observe the First Saturday devotion.
  4. We must make reparation to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

Mary said there will be an era of peace, no matter what we do, in which the Sacred Heart of Jesus will reign and the Immaculate Heart of Mary will triumph.

Man disobeys, the devil blocks the Fatima message. World War II happens just as Mary said.

Mary appeared to me for 14 months daily. She gives us the same message as Fatima. Jesus and Mary give us God's Blue Book and Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. He writes His message of love on our hearts. His life lives in our hearts. The Scripture and the Mass live in our hearts.

In the Shepherds of Christ Movement, our focus is on the priest.

November 6, 1996

I saw today, our home is the Heart of Christ. Mary is the gate-keeper of this most sacred place. The Lord, the Good Shepherd, is leading us home to His Heart. We are fed on His life. The graces flow abundantly in the Mass and the sacraments through the priest. Christ has chosen them to be special, the chosen ones, anointed, through which His life flows. The priest is another Christ to the world.

Jesus is angered. Mary is the gate-way to the Heart of Christ. She is the key for the priest to have such oneness with Christ. Many priests are bitter in their hearts toward Mary. They do not honor her, respect her, or love her. The Holy Spirit is espoused to Mary. The priest must love Mary to be united to God.

The life flows from the Father, in the Holy Spirit through the pierced Heart of Christ. The fountain of Divine life flows through Mary, through the priest to us. The priest celebrates the Mass, acting as another Christ and administers the sacraments. The more he is one with Christ, the more grace flows through him, the more the people are fed.

Jesus picked the priest. He chose them. He gave them this great gift. The priest is given the highest honor to be another Christ, to celebrate Mass, to consecrate bread and wine into the Body and Blood of Christ, to baptize, to forgive sins, to administer other sacraments.

Jesus is wounded by his ungrateful priests. Many do not treasure this great gift given to them. Jesus laments. He is angered. He cries out, "Many priests do not love My Mother; they do not love Me. They are the Shepherds to lead the stray ones back home (back to His Heart)."

John 10: 2-3:
"The one who enters through the gate is the shepherd of the flock; the gatekeeper lets him in..."

Mary is the gate-keeper; there is not another pure and sinless human person. We cannot enter any other way because we are sinners. He gave us the sinless one as the way we enter into His most Sacred Heart. The fountain of life flows from His Heart through the pierced wound.

Mary is the gate-keeper. Satan is trying to separate the priest from Mary. Satan does not want the priest to be one with Christ for he is the one who celebrates the Mass and administers the sacraments. So Satan vehemently attacks the priest who is the main administrator of this fountain of life. So Satan has waged a war against the priest and Mary.

Mary is the key to oneness with Christ. Only in going through the pure and sinless one will we be one with Christ. It is in this oneness with Christ that the graces flow.

Many priests are like a clogged pipe. The grace does not flow as freely as Christ wants, because they are divided from Mary and attached to the world.

Consecration to Mary and Jesus is the way home to the depth of His Heart, our little heaven on earth. We are barely scratching the surface of His Heart. We must enter deeply into His Heart for the grace to flow as fire across the earth. The fire of His love will cover the earth when priests' hearts are consecrated to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary and celebrating the Mass.

Oh fountain of life! The lance pierced His Heart deeply. The thorns surrounding His Heart, press in deeply. Many today love Him with a shallow love.

The words in the Mass and Scriptures are not tasted deep within. The depth is not there. We must love Him with our whole heart, our whole soul, and our whole being.

We must pray for the priests as Jesus has instructed us. It is through the priestly newsletter that Jesus will lead the priests to dwell deeply in His Heart. It is our job in the Shepherds of Christ Movement to be His Shepherds to help lead the strayed ones back to His Heart.

We become one in His Heart, through the great grace He is giving to us in the Movement as promised to Fr. Carter July 31, 1994:

...I will give great graces to the members of the Shepherds of Christ Associates. I will call them to be deeply united to My Heart and to Mary's Heart as I lead them ever closer to My Father in the Holy Spirit.

As we become one in His Heart we are leading the strayed ones home to His Heart through the consecration. There will be one flock and one Shepherd as hearts are led home to His Heart through the consecration. We are shepherding His flock as we spread the consecration to the churches, schools, and families.

We are richly fed with the Eucharist. We encourage the priests to read the priestly newsletter. We ask them to start prayer chapters in the churches centered in consecration, and we beg them to leave the church open so people can spend time with Jesus before the tabernacle.

The institutions are intact, we must encourage them to consecrate their hearts. We are attempting to reach the school children with the consecration and the rosary. We are trying to reach the family with starting prayer chapters in their homes and daily praying the consecration and rosary together.

Mary has asked us to observe the first Saturday devotion. If many did this, many, many souls would be saved. It is all in the spirit of reparation, we give our love to God. For Mary's and Jesus' Heart have greatly been offended. We must make reparation to our God.

The Father looks to the earth. He wants one happy family in which we are loving each other as real brothers. He showed us the depth of His love that he laid down His life for us. This is the love He wants from us.

He wants us to be one happy family in the Shepherds of Christ Movement. Deeply loving one another, deeply united in love that we would love as He showed us how to love, that we would lay down our lives for our brother.

We are the leaders to lead men into this new era. This is the good news as we spread the consecration and the Shepherds of Christ Movement across the earth. Our heavenly Mother has promised peace to the world.

There is not another way. This is Jesus' instrument to help renew the Church and the world. It is through the Shepherds of Christ Movement and Fr. Carter the fire of His love will spread across the earth.

An immense amount of grace will be outpoured. Hearts will fervently love God. We will be one body in Him. We will be one, happy family as the Father intends - loving God and one another.

December 29, 1996 Continued...

Jesus: "Yahweh has said: Because this people approaches me only in words, honors me only with lip service while its heart is far from me, and my religion, as far as it is concerned, is nothing but human commandment, a lesson memorized..." (Isaiah 29:13)

I will write the messages of My love on their hearts through you, Fr. Carter and Rita. I will renew the Church and the world greatly through these writings.

My Mother appears and they ignore My Mother. I am talking to you, Fr. Carter. I must make you understand the importance of these revelations to the church and the world.

I beg you to focus all your attention on releasing these writings for the world in their entirety.

I am the Teacher, "He who is your teacher will hide no longer and you will see your teacher with your own eyes." (Isaiah 30:20)

Messenger: This was about 11 days before Mary appeared on the building. This message tells us much about our mission in the Shepherds of Christ Movement

December 3, 1999 - Second Message

Given October 26, 1999 - Excerpt from God the Father’s message.

God the Father speaks: ...I wish this invitation be extended daily on the Internet to come and pray during the Christmas Novena at the image site. If this is impossible, pray at home for the coming of Jesus in the hearts of men...

INVITE.jpg (27553 bytes)

God the Father, Jesus, and Mary are calling all to pray in front of Mary’s image in Clearwater, Florida, on December 17, 1999. This important day marks the 3-year anniversary of Mary’s appearance on the building. God is asking us to gather for this special day, praying for peace, and especially to make reparation to God, the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

October 11, 1999 - Jesus speaks: …I want all who can come to Florida December 17, 1999, to come there. Mary wants the apostles gathered in prayer, but if you cannot come, then you pray fervently.

October 15, 1999 - Mary speaks: My dear children, I invite you to come to my Image site to pray December 17, 1999. I am Mary your Mother. Please come.

October 15, 1999 - Jesus speaks: I wish you to come and pray with the greatest fervor before the image of My Mother December 17, 1999. …Please come and pray. If this is impossible, pray as a body before the tabernacle and at all Centers including: Toledo, Ohio; California; Kansas; Pennsylvania; Delaware; wherever one is able to pray. I love you, Jesus.

October 26, 1999 - God the Father speaks: You are the children of Eve. You are sons of that woman and I send you the Woman, your Mother and you ignore her.

I want a body of people praying strongly for the priests, the Church and the world beneath the image at 6:20 p.m. on December 17, 1999, and all others praying as a body united to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass throughout the world. I wish all priests who can to celebrate Mass at 6:20 p.m. on December 17, 1999, and every day after, until Christmas. I wish all to pray this novena for these days December 17, 1999-December 25, 1999 at 6:20 praying for the coming of the Holy Spirit, healing, oneness, to be spread with the Blood of Jesus as directed by My Son in a message February 23, 1999. I want this. I want fervent prayer. I want unity in the hearts. I want men praying as a body at 6:20 p.m. as requested by Jesus and Mary. I want communal reparation by all receiving Communion and/or making a spiritual Communion united to the Mass.

I wish an invitation to this gathering to be circulated, stressing making reparation to God, reparation to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

January 5, 1999 - God the Father speaks: It is because of your fervor to pray here that you have held back the hand of My Son from punishing the earth with just punishment for the crimes committed against your God.

Please come and join us for prayer at the site in Clearwater, Florida, the other sites mentioned in this invitation, or from wherever you can. Thank you and God bless you,

Jesus speaks: What is so important is that you unite as a body now praying as never before. Do not let Satan divide you over trivial matters.

It is your oneness and your love, as you live in the Father’s will, that will please Him. He will grant great grace for this. Study the messages and live by them.

This is the desire of your Father in heaven: that you are obedient, loving, little children, living to love and serve God.

December 3, 1999 - Nursing Home Message - Third Message

Mary speaks: Oh, My children, your Father loves you so much. This message is given for nursing home children and all my children.

I am Mary your Mother. I love you so much.

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 "Jesus is Crucified and Dies on the Cross" when doing these meditations. Also it is recommended that you have pictures of the Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Excerpt from July 28, 1995 rosary, "Jesus is Crucified and Dies on the Cross" from the Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary Jesus Dies on the Cross Stained Glass Window 

Jesus is Crucified and Dies on the Cross

  1. Messenger:  Jesus was raised high on the cross on Calvary. See Him on the hill and see Mary under the cross and hear the wind blow. See the cross against the darkened sky. This is the greatest sacrifice: the Son of God gave His all to the Father for love of us. His hands were pierced, His feet were pierced, His head was crowned with thorns. He surrendered and gave His life that we might have life forever with Him in heaven.
  1. It is in uniting ourselves to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass being offered all through the world at every moment, offering ourselves with this sacrifice to the Father, that this is our most powerful prayer and that our prayers are magnified to such an extent. All through the day offer, with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, to the Father, in the Holy Spirit, through the intercession of the Virgin Mary. Offer up, My dear ones, your prayers-for the souls suffering in this world this day, for the souls in Purgatory that need your prayers-all of your petitions. Unite them to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass going on constantly, the greatest prayer that you can give to the Father.
  1. Let us all pray in union with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass throughout the world and offer ourselves up continually in this Sacrifice with Jesus to the Father. As we all do this there will be unity in this offering, for we are all one in Him. As we unite in Him, we unite in each other.
  2. Ave Maria! It is through the pierced Heart of Jesus that the sacramental life of the Church was born. Blood and water flowed forth from His Heart-water, the symbol of baptism, our rebirth in Him, and blood, the symbol of the Eucharist, whereby we are fed by his Body. As the life flows through His pierced Heart, so it flows through His beloved Mother, for her Heart was invisibly pierced with a sword and she is the Mediatrix of all grace. As she nourished the Christ Child within her womb, so she provides the life to us from her Son Jesus through her spiritual womb.
  3. I see the life flow from His pierced Heart, through the Heart of the Virgin Mary, and into our hearts. We are saturated with this divine life and divine love. It is from His Heart that all mercy and love flow.

Question for married couples and others in intimate relationships:

Q: How have we merged in oneness in Jesus since we have joined the Shepherds of Christ Movement?
