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.

Consumed by the Fire of His Love in the Mass

Messenger: I adore You, I worship You my beauteous God. I loved Him so intently in this Mass, wanting only to worship and adore Him. My focus was worshipping my beauteous Father. My soul was filled with the presence of God’s love in the Spirit. I had intense oneness with my beloved Spouse Jesus Christ, offering sacrifice to God. I wanted to exist in the depth of union IN HIM, knowing all I know and the struggles, but experiencing all this intently in Him. I want to exist dwelling so deeply in Him. The self unites so deeply with the Almighty God and in that point the self is so completely immersed in the Divine God. My soul was filled with awe for God. He possessed my soul in the Mass and all I crave is deeper union with Him, being existent IN HIM IN SUCH A HEIGHTENED DEGREE. This is joy, to be filled by the Almighty God and living existent in Him in this elevated state in the Mass. Come to me Lord and POSSESS MY SOUL.

Jesus speaks: The treasure I give thee is Myself. I am the treasure of your soul.

Messenger: Take me away from this place. I want to be where all I know is myself existent in You. The walls around me drop off and my state is that of an elevated union with my Divine God. He gives Himself to me. I am in awe, I adore and love Him. I want to bend low and worship Him. He is truly all-holy, worthy of all honor and praise. I was consumed with awe for love of Him, wishing only to worship Him and to bend low, filled with awe and thanksgiving for this awesome gift of Himself. God gives us the greatest gift of the Mass. With Christ we offer this most Holy Sacrifice to the Father, wanting only to please Him, worship Him and praise Him. We bend and bow low to our most beauteous God, Lord of heaven and earth. Fill me with Your grace that I will be in awe of You and bend low to Your great wonders in the Mass. My God, I adore You, I worship You, I love You.

Image of the Sorrowful Mother

 Sorrowful Mother Statue at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center


Messenger: Mary appeared daily for 14 months at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center. I received live rosaries entitled, "Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary". Many are published. A "live rosary" is one in which I receive messages directly from Jesus and Mary in the rosary. I speak these messages and they are recorded by tape. These tapes are transcribed later into documents for publication. All rosaries that are published have been received this way. An example of live rosaries can be found in the Apostles Manual. The live rosary tapes are also available. They are available: May 11, 1996; September 10, 1996; October 13, 1996; November 13, 1996; December 13, 1996; January 13, 1997, and February 13, 1997. I began receiving rosaries this way soon after Mary appeared in July, 1994.

Mary appeared daily to me at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center. She appeared 9 months in the main chapel, the Rosary Chapel, and the remaining 6 months in the Sorrowful Mother Chapel after they decided to move her statue. In her place in the main rosary chapel was placed a mosaic of Our Lady of Guadalupe.

A picture of the main chapel follows. This is where Mary appeared, in the back of the chapel.

Messenger: Also included is the Sorrowful Mother Chapel where Mary appeared for the last six months.

Sorrowful Mother statue at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center

Messenger: A rosary given from Mary when she first was moved to the Sorrowful Mother Chapel is given in the Rosary Book, March 30, 1995. The book is entitled, "Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary".

On September 5, 1995, a rosary video was recorded. A pink mist slowly went over Mary and disappeared during the first mystery.

We were beginning to be confronted with problems with receiving the rosary at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center in early September, 1995. On September 13, 1995, I was called in to talk to two members of the lay discernment board. I was told I could not deliver the messages aloud and could only say Hail Mary’s, Our Father’s and "regular prayers".

Mary quit appearing there at this time because of this decision. We would return to our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center on the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, December 12, 1995.

The rosary received on September 5, 1995, had messages. The rosary September 13, 1995, did not because of the decision, I was not permitted to verbalize the messages and say the Shepherds of Christ prayers. In the period between September 1994, and December 12, 1995, we met at two places, first at Our Lady of Knock for a very short while, then at Our lady of the Woods. The majority of times we met at Our Lady of the Woods before the tabernacle. I was permitted to give the messages there and we were permitted to recite the Shepherds of Christ prayers. When we were to return to Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center, it was decided we should go on December 12, 1995, because it was the best day. I was certain this was not an accident since it was Our Lady of Guadalupe’s Feast Day. (Note: when they moved Mary out of the Rosary Chapel, they put a mosaic of Our Lady of Guadalupe in her place. When they moved us out, it was close to the Feast of the Sorrowful Mother and we came back on the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe.) We only met once a month at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center, for Father Carter or another priest was required to be there because of the messages. I still personally prayed at Holy Cross - Immaculata. In early January 1996, I saw the transfigured Lord in the front of Holy Cross - Immaculata Church and on December 5, 1996, I would see Jesus hanging on the cross at the point of death in the back of Holy Cross - Immaculata Church. Then Mary appeared 12 days later on the building in Florida. It was as if she closed off her visits in Cincinnati.

The time before was preceded by endless laments of Mary to listen to her. See October 5, 1995, and 1996. (October 5, 1996 is in the Apostles Manual. Her cry in the Mary Message tape was that of being ignored. She said she did not appear as she once did. Then she appeared on the building in Florida.

Mary's Message from the Rosary of August 27, 1996

Mary: I stood beneath the cross of my Son, and my heart was in such pain for I saw Him before my eyes. I saw Him covered with blood. I saw Him die. My heart, my children, my heart to watch my Son, but my heart, my heart, how I suffered for my little children of the world that give in to this world and give up the love of my Son. O my little children of light, I give you this message. Carry this light into the darkness for your Mother Mary, for I stood beneath the cross and I cried. I cried for the little ones. I cried for the young ones, the ones that do not care and will lose their souls. How do I make you see for you will not listen to me? What can I do? I come. I appear. I beg. I plead. I give you these gifts from my Son, and you reject me. I do not deliver messages very often anymore for I have been ignored. The message is the same. You do not read the messages I have given to you. Please help me. Help the little children. I appear. I appear. I appear, and I am ignored. I stood beneath the cross, and I cried. I cried, and my heart was in such anguish for my little children, for I am searching for them this day as I searched for the Child Jesus. Please, please help me. I cannot hold back the hand of my Son any longer. I am Mary, your Mother. I ask you to help my children. You are my children of light.

PUT ON TAPE AT MARY’S REQUEST December 12, 1996, Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe}

Messenger: In 1996 we continued to have meetings at Our Lady of the Woods, Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center once a month, and in a private home, once a month.

On June 17, 1996, we were preparing at my home for the 17th’s meeting which was a special meeting on Fatima. (The 17th meetings were held in my home may times; Steve and Sheila had some of them in their home.) We were told a second time we were not allowed to pray at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center. A man called me at home from the Holy Spirit Center. It was a Monday, our regular meeting would be on Tuesday, the next day. Father said he had made arrangements with the priest there so we had our regular meeting as planned on June 18, 1996, but we were told to meet at Tom’s farm the following Tuesday. Arrangements were quickly made, first rosary was held on June 25, 1996.

Arlinghaus' farm in Kentucky

Arlinghaus' farm in Kentucky

Messenger: June 17, 1994, I had received a message from Jesus when the Falmouth message was blocked.

Blue Book III, June 17, 1994, "These Messages are Mine"

"I cried Bloody tears because of My sorrow to be ignored."

"This is My medicine. I want My letters to circulate. I want My letters published. Why has My letter for Falmouth been held up? There are many souls that will suffer because of these delays."

Messenger: When we were asked to leave on June 17, 1996, it was the anniversary of this message from Jesus.

We continued to meet at Tom’s farm. We had our problems at most of the places that we would go to for our meeting to pray and receive messages in the rosary. It was at Tom’s farm that Mary would speak again in the rosary on August 13, 1996, after a long silence. People would see St. Michael that day: see Apostles Manual. There we would receive Mary’s Message, August 27, 1996. Some meetings were held in Mike and Diane’s house, especially in November, 1996.

On October 13, 1996, we would have the first meeting that Jesus would call on the 13ths to help to lead to the completion of the Fatima mission.

Father Carter led these rosaries that were on the farm on October 13, 1996; November 13, 1996; December 13, 1996; January 13, 1997. October 13, 1996, there were about 400 people.

Father Edward J. Carter celebrating Mass at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center

Messenger: On December 14, 1996, we went to Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center once again and Father Carter  celebrated Mass for the Shepherd’s of Christ apostles.

On December 12, 1996, the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, I received the direction to make Mary Message tape. I was told to go to Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center on that Feast. In the back of the chapel, where we had held those last rosaries in March, 1995, where the Pieta was, I was told to make Mary Message tape by Jesus and Mary and label it, "Jesus and Mary requested this tape be made and circulated on December 12, 1996, the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe." It was interesting that we went back to our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center again, close to the date of Our Lady of Guadalupe. We went there December 14, 1996, for the Mass Father Carter celebrated.

December 13, 1996, we would pass out the Mary Message tapes at Tom’s farm, as I had been directed by Our Lord and Our Lady on the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe. December 14, 1996, Father Carter celebrated Mass in the Rosary Chapel at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center and December 17, 1996, Mary appeared on the building in Florida. The first Rosary Book, "Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary" was to arrive in Cincinnati that day, December 17, 1996, from the printer.

On February 13, 1997, we celebrated the 13th at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center. It was reported there were close to 600 people there and our supplies from heaven lined the halls. Father Carter celebrated Mass that day and gave a talk before the rosary.

The Mass was celebrated again on March 13, 1997, at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center by Father Carter. The rosary for that day was delivered at noon as is usual on the 13ths.

On April 5, 1997, Father Carter was told to focus his attention on the priestly newsletter.

On April 12-13, 1997, we had a National Conference of Shepherds of Christ as called by Our Lord at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center. I had received this direction in a message February 16, 1997. It was called by Our Lord. His request was to meet there on that weekend. God the Father told me to release the story of Falmouth and the flood of March 3, 1997.

God the Father said it must be released on April 13, 1997. It was the hardest thing I felt I ever did. I know what the Father told me to do and I had to do it. I was filled with fire for love of Him and I did as He told me. (What is interesting to note, and I notice this as I write this, the Titanic sunk April 14-15, 1912). The one message Our Lord stressed to be released was received on April 13, 1994. His request was to put it in the front of Blue Book II and III and give it to every soul on the earth so they knew His love and knew about the Eucharist.

There were many hardships at this time, but tremendous advances in the Movement.

Shepherds of Christ Center at Morrow, OH

Messenger: We moved out more quickly and extensively than ever before as Our Lord had told us we would do in that February 16, 1997, message. On December 8, 1996, we consecrated our new Center in Morrow, Ohio, to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary and held our core meetings there. Mary appeared on the building December 17, 1996,. Tom went to Florida to be an apostle there. Joe Lee left for Florida February 13, 1997, and has been there ever since.

On May 13, 1997, we were told for the 3rd time we were not allowed to meet at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center.

Some of the events of May 13, 1997, are accounted in the December 3, 1998, daily message.

May 13, 1993, I received the first message from Blue Book I when leaving Conyers, Georgia. Four years later, the statues would fall on their faces, May 13, 1997, on Tom’s Farm.

excerpt from DAILY MESSAGE, December 3, 1998

Messenger: On May 13, 1997, we went to Tom's farm in Kentucky. I hadn't referred to Conyers before in any rosaries. In the fourth mystery of the rosary, I told how at Conyers on May 13, 1993, a gigantic wind came up and I accounted what happened. After the rosary, it was cold and the people walked to Tom's barn. The main people were still behind about 5 minutes after the rosary. A wind came up and I thought I would have to run for cover, for I thought I would be blown off my feet. The large Sacred Heart and Immaculate Heart statues blew to the ground. Mary's head came off and was face up. She was cracked diagonally right through her Immaculate Heart. Our Lord wished these pictures to be placed here on the Internet. The chairs, the swing, the tables all were blown over. It was just like Conyers, May 13, 1993. The air was calm and as soon as the rosary was over, the wind came forth so strong I could hardly stand on my feet, and it blew everything over.

Our Lord wishes these pictures to be released with this writing today. What followed was immense persecution for the Shepherds of Christ Movement. The rosary and its message of May 13, 1997, will soon be released here.

Messenger: I speak as Our Lord has instructed me to tell some of the struggles we have had in spreading the Shepherds of Christ Movement and doing our weekly core meeting and rosary in which I usually receive messages.

I quote from Revelation 12:1-2

Revelation 12:1-2

Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman, robed with the sun, standing on the moon, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. She was pregnant, and in labour, crying aloud in the pangs of childbirth.

Messenger: We began to meet on the 13ths under a big tent at the Morrow Center.

 Prayer tent at Morrow, OH Prayer tent at Morrow, OH

Messenger: On October 13, 1997, we began meeting in China, Indiana

Altar at the church in China Indiana

Messenger: In the church in China, Indiana, Jesus is reserved in the tabernacle.

All 13ths in 1998 were held in China, Indiana, except October 13, 1998, which was held at Tom’s farm.

On the 5ths of every month, there is a special rosary in Florida in which Jesus and Mary give messages.

Prayer meetings are now conducted nightly from all three Centers. They begin at 6:20 p.m. A novena to the Holy Spirit is prayed, the Shepherds of Christ prayers and the rosary. All pray as a body in one heart asking for grace and mercy from our God and a special outpouring of the Holy Spirit, praying for priests and the renewal of the Church and the world.

Mary speaks: My children, I have labored giving birth to my children. I am your Mother. I wail aloud, for my children do not hear me. They are the stubborn children of Eve.

I have appeared on the building in Florida, my picture has been broadcast across the television screens in the homes of my little ones, but they do not see me. I have received little coverage as the Woman Clothed as the Sun, that appears on the building, crying out to you to pray.

And in all of my endeavors to reach you, you persecute my messengers in the Shepherds of Christ who have tried to deliver the message.

My children, you better listen and pray. My Son’s anger rages above your towering buildings. The Father has spoken and He is ignored.

My children, do not persecute those praying for you and trying to get others to pray.

Prayer is the lifting up of the mind and heart to God.

Prayer is the only way that you will receive the mercy you need.

My children, you are haughty, willful and disobedient. You have not listened to my requests of Fatima. You have plugged your ears and are deaf to the calls of the Good Shepherd.

My children, listen to me. I wail aloud and I appear to you.

I will cover the earth with a blanket of my snow.

Image over Altar in China, Indiana

January 2, 1999

Mary speaks: I am Our Lady of Snows. I come to cover the earth with a soft white blanket of my love.

I come to bring peace to the earth. I tell you to let go of the anxiety in your heart and experience my peace and His love.

I am your heavenly Mother. I come to hold you and caress you and take you to my Immaculate Heart.

My Kingdom Is At Hand

God's Blue Book II Cover

February 6, 1994 5:00 a.m. (excerpt)

Messenger: Notes: At 6:30 a.m. I saw a vision of children, two adults by their side, walking together in a group. One adult in front was wearing a scarf on a tweed coat. She had brown hair which was curled. She turned and had her hand on a child. She was leading them. The other adult was in the back. There were about 20 to 25 kids on a street. They all had their coats and they had just turned the corner.

Jesus speaks: Lead the children to the love of Jesus. Lead My priests and sisters to My infinite love. My love is abounding to all. My love is on fire for everyone. On fire! You must tell them. Speak for Me. All must know of this intense love for them. I am the Way, the Truth and the Life.

See the children will be led home. Their hearts will know My love. I want you to speak in front of groups about My love.

I Died For You

God's Blue Book II Cover

February 23, 1994 (excerpt)

Jesus speaks: Listen and preach My love and emotion here. Priests will create little cities, little cities in each church to spread the light of Christ to this sick world. Each priest can create his own little city, a powerhouse of God's love. God has all the power. His power is endless. It never runs out. It is might. You have no power except through Him. Churches filled with the intimate love of Jesus will be powerhouses.

I am God, My little ones. God can do all things. I can make your cities light up the darkness. I am the Way, the Truth, the Life. I am the light of life. I am God! I can do all things. I want to act in you. You need to be in constant union with Me. My priests, you need to be selfless. My soul and yours are one. I want to act in you.

Hold not back. Pray the Prayer for Union with Me.

Messenger: In a special message from Our Lord at the College of Mt. St. Joseph Convent, I had a vision of Him dressed in gold by the side of the altar.

He gave me the following message. Included is an excerpt from that message. He wished me to speak to the sisters and the priests.

This is part of what He said.

From my notebook September 7, 1995, at the Convent Chapel, Mt. St. Joseph, before the exposed Eucharist and a vision of Our Lord.

QUOTE from my notebook:

Messenger: I had a vision of Jesus standing to the left of the altar, His halo around His head. There was a lot of gold, His arms outstretched.

He asked me to carry the rosaries to this world. (He referred to the meditations, "Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary")

He said "I call you to speak. Do not hold back. I am sending you into the desert. Carry nothing on your back, go as I command you. Free yourself of all worldly attachments and speak. I speak through you. I will touch the cold hearts through your speech. Do not hold back -- souls are at stake."

Whatever you ask of God, God will give you.

Jesus: I call you to speak .... you have a mouth, use it.

Jesus speaks: "
You must speak My truth." "My work for you is to speak My truth."

"Speak of My words to all. I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. And you are My messenger. I speak the truth to you that you will speak the truth to all. No time to wait. It is short"

"These are not just for you, these are teachings of My love for all My children. Each child needs to know My love."

"Your voice will be My tool to reach many."

"You will take the knocks, but you will be the key to unlock many doors."

"This is My work for you to speak My truth and I will be with you, little one, do not be afraid, I will tell you the way."

Messenger: He has spoken to us. Will you please hear the words of Jesus and Mary and the Father and pray with us?
