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.

Mary, Spread Your Protective Mantle on Your Children and Take Us to Your Immaculate Heart

Messenger: It is our responsibility as children of God and heirs of heaven to entrust the whole Church and whole world to the Sacred Heart and Immaculate Heart. We place them under Mary's protective mantle. We take all our brothers and sisters and entrust them to the Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart when we consecrate the whole Church and the whole world to the Sacred Heart and Immaculate Heart. We pray with Jesus that we are one, praying the prayer Jesus prayed before He was arrested.

John 17:20-26

I pray not only for these
but also for those
who through their teaching
    will come to believe in me.
May they all be one,
just as, Father, you are in me
    and I am in you,
so that they also may be in us,
so that the world may believe
    it was you who sent me.
I have given them the glory
    you gave to me,
that they may be one as we are one.
With me in them and you in me,
may they be so perfected in unity
that the world will recognise
    that it was you who sent me
and that you have loved them
    as you have loved me.

Messenger: We are in constant prayer in our hearts as was Mary when she walked the earth. She is espoused to the Holy Spirit. The Spirit was so one in her, leading her. She lived in perfect alliance to the Father's will, as perfectly as any human person could. We walk the earth dwelling in the Heart of our Mother Mary. We ask her intercession and that of all the saints and angels and souls in purgatory, especially St. Joseph. We entrust the world to the care of her maternal Immaculate Heart and the Sacred Heart of Jesus. We the children of Adam and Eve are one with the New Adam and the New Eve, being transformed by the Holy Spirit, living to please our heavenly Father. We are the tainted children of Eve. We unite in the Sacrifice of Calvary sacramentally made present in the Mass all over the world. We pray with all our hearts for the redemption of souls. Oh Mother Mary, help us to realize the great value to souls in our living this way. We consecrate the Church and the world to the Sacred Heart and to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. We ask the Blood of Jesus be spread on the Church and the world. We cast the devil into hell far from us. We pray this way as a body, members of the Body of Christ, in all our waking moments and we beg for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit on us.

Oh Sacred Heart of Jesus, we place our trust in Thee.

March 26, 1999 - Second Message

Mary speaks: You are never a slave to any master. God is your Master. Your every desire is to live according to His will. Addictions are prevalent in the lives of my children. You must constantly pray to know God's will for you. The more you dwell in Our Hearts, the more you will be living in His will. The more you pray to the Holy Spirit, the more you will know what God's will is for you. In praying the Morning Offering, you ask the Father in the name of Jesus to reveal to you, His little child, His will and ask to serve Him, to please Him.

I am the handmaid of the Lord, I lived to please my God. You will be free the more you live in His will, free of addictions. The question becomes for mothers and fathers of teenage children, "What is God's will for me?" Parents, you are in charge, you have a responsibility to instruct your children in the ways of life rooted in Him. Life is not life if it is not rooted in Him. You must be firm, you must have time available for your children . You will be held accountable to God, but if a child is willful, addicted to drugs, whatever it may be, you cannot let that child or a spouse, or friend control your behavior to the point of not living according to God's will. You may be enabling them to stay addicted if you "cater" to them more than you should by following them around. You yourself can become addicted to them. Every man has a free will. God gives every person his proper role. A wife is to be subject to her husband. If the husband is an alcoholic and will not seek help, she is not to be there 24 hours a day saving him from his addiction, when he willingly chooses to not help himself and depend on her for his needs that are not her responsibility to give him. She must pray fervently to God to love and serve God and live according to His will, loving her husband and doing all that is God's will to help him and encourage him to get help. The problem is the same with a son or daughter. The parent has more responsibility for younger children. A son or daughter of 18 that refuses to get help can hurt the lives of the family tremendously. The child, spouse, mother, father, friend who refuses to get help regarding a chemical addiction cannot expect another to live his life centered around this addiction. One must pray fervently to live according to God's will in the situation. One must seek help and pray to God for the grace to help the addicted person and others involved. You must pray for the right help.

You are the members of the Father's family. Freedom is found in living in the Father's will. The thoughts of many will be laid bare. When there is a problem, it must be faced. Parents and children must be truthful about problems, they cannot live in a life of secrecy. Some parents will not openly face the truth. Children and spouses living in these situations cannot force another's will. You must pray to live in God's will when there is a deep dysfunction in the family. You must uncover the problems to operate in truth yourself. Some will not face problems. They live lives telling themselves they are perfect, telling their workers and children they are perfect and hurting inside, expecting perfection from all others. My children, you are not perfect, you must live in the truth, you must live to help one another grow in more perfected ways. You must unveil the ugly skeletons in your closets and speak the truth. You must know the truth about yourselves. Pray to live in the truth. The truth is found in the Word and the 10 Commandments. You must live by this. My children, freedom is found in living in the truth, in living in the Father's will. Sometimes it is the will of the Father you endure an ugly situation in you family life. It is a choice you make to live in the Father's will. It may be His will for you to endure the suffering. You are not controlled by the other. You are deeply rooted in knowing that you are living according to God's will, accepting the trials and living in love. You must pray to know what God's will is, living always in love and in the truth.

Praying the Our Father: "Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven." "Deliver us from evil."

Praying the Hail Mary: you pray as sinners.

This will help you to be humble and live in the truth.

The addiction is caused by pain within from covered up illnesses. My children are sick. The medicine is His love. Generations upon generations have hidden the truth. The response of many of the children is seeking addictive pleasures to help the pain.

In a family in which one covers up the poison, it hurts all members of that family, but with God's grace you can grow in the ways of the Lord in the suffering.

The ills must be brought to the surface to have true intimate love. All must be truthful about their imperfections, living according to God's will in truth.

Now you must strive to do His will and live in great suffering because of the evil in the world. You must, yourself, stay rooted in the truth, trying to lead souls to the truth, praying for your brothers and sisters, the whole human race.

I am Mary, your Mother.

Consecrate your Church and you world to me.

Pray the Pray for Union with Jesus.

Cast the devil far from you, the Church and the world.

Ask for protection of the angels.

And pray as never before, knowing your God will never abandon you. Heaven awaits as a reward for those who love and serve Him.

I am Mary, Queen of Peace and Queen of the Universe.

Jesus speaks: My children, I have given you the mighty medicine for your ills. I have given you Myself in the Eucharist. I have given you My on-fire love. I give you My Blue Books - intimate love letters from Me to you to heal your wounded souls. You must live in truth. When faced with a dilemma, open My Blue Book anywhere and I will speak to you. Live the messages I give to you. I give you My prayers in the Shepherds of Christ Prayer Manual. My Mother gives you the rosary.

October 1, 1996 Message from the Rosary Book

Jesus speaks: The Shepherds of Christ Movement will have centers of renewal.

As requested by My Mother, I am asking you to pray the rosary as a continued novena for the Movement. Pray, beginning this day, 27 days in petition, 27 days in thanksgiving for these requests given by My Mother June 17, 1996:

  1. For the spread of the rosary, circulation, and publication of these rosary meditations, for the rosary books and children's rosary books, for the rosary Aves and consecrations to be distributed and used by school children.
  2. For Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center.
  3. For the Shepherds of Christ centers, for the locations and funds, for the priestly mailing to establish chapters in the churches.

I am requesting that you continually pray this rosary novena from this day forth for these intentions. I am Jesus. I am giving My directions to you, My apostles, in these rosaries from Our Hearts. Please study the rosaries.

I am here and My Mother is here in a special way on the 13th of each month. I am giving to you abundant graces to grow closer to Our Hearts during this rosary. Whenever you use these rosaries, I will give you special graces to help you in this mission, My apostles. Open your hearts and let Me fill your soul with My love. I am alive. I am alive. I am alive, and I live in you. I am Jesus. I come to you with greatest love. Please read the message of Pentecost, 1996 and March 26, 1996 found in this book.

Messenger: For the rosary novena as requested by Jesus and Mary, we pray on the first day the Joyful Mysteries, on the second day the Sorrowful Mysteries, on the third day the Glorious Mysteries. Pray the rosary this way for 27 days in petition, and continue praying the rosary for 27 more days in thanksgiving. Jesus and Mary want us to continue this novena perpetually, 27 days in petition, 27 days in thanksgiving. Included is a chart to help you keep track on the back of the book. Please tell all members of the Shepherds of Christ Movement about this request of Jesus and Mary and circulate the prayer charts with the above message.

God has entrusted the peace of the world to Mary, she is the Queen of Peace. Mary appeared at Fatima in 1917. Mary's peace plan was given to Lucia as follows:

  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.

Jesus speaks: I ask you to include the message June 26, 1995, from Florida. (Apostle's Manual pp. 421-425)

June 26, 1995
The Pain - Naples, Florida

Messenger: He spread His arms, He gave His all, Jesus, the Son of God, the greatest sacrifice, He gave Himself entirely for the good of all men. He opened His arms, He died on the cross.

His arms were covered with blood, His arms so weak and filled with pain, wounded. His arms, the pain shot up His arms and the final blow to each arm a nail through each precious hand.

All the agony He experienced, all the pain, and the crown, to each arm, a nail hammered into the hand.

All the nerves cut and severed by the nail, the pain shooting up His precious arms, the final blow given to His most precious members.

The legs that carried Him, that carried the heavy cross, the legs that were forced and cajoled, that continues to Calvary - the legs weakened, skinned, bleeding, beaten, burned, the legs that knew patience and perseverance, the legs connected to a sore foot that was rubbed and gashed and bleeding, the members of Jesus, filled with such pain and exhaustion, now is crowned with the final glory. The nail that was driven into the foot, the pain shot up this already weakened leg, covered with blood and wounds and pain, the final blow, the nerves severed by the hammered nail.

A blow to each hand, a blow to each foot, a blow to the head, a stamping that pressed down and continued in excruciating pain.

Jesus speaks: They numbered all My bones. They gave Me vinegar and gall to drink. They gave Me a cloth to wipe My blood-covered flesh.

What did they give to Me? Love is giving, My dear ones. How many of you are wounded when you are not given things by your brothers you love?

My members were in such pain, the pain shot up My arms. My legs were so weak I could scarce move them. I was filled with pain within them.

To all who watched, they saw a man, weakened and covered with blood and wounds. They did not see the pain inside that shot up My legs and arms, the nerves inside My body that sent signals of deep pain to My central nervous system. They did not see the nerves inside sending pain signals everywhere.

The final blow being to each hand and foot, the severing of My nerves by the blunt and rusted nails.

An arm extended. A final blow. I beheld a nail pounded into My hand and the pain shot up My arms, unbearable to a human mind.

Do you know of the pain within My body? Signals sending messages of deep pain everywhere. I knew all of these sufferings in the garden. So great were the sufferings to My mind, I sweat blood.

My flesh was covered with wounds. My arms were stretched from their sockets. My body was beaten and bleeding, every inch of My body covered with deep wounds. But, My loved ones, you miss the depth of My love. My wounds were so deep, but the final wound, the pounding of the nails in My hands and feet, a severing of the nerves, an ending of the deepest pain, to experience even deeper pain, beyond your human comprehension, it was done to the Almighty God, a Divine Person, I suffered the final blow to each member.

The pounding in the hands and feet, the crown to each member, and they numbered all My bones. My nerves a network of pain running throughout My entire body.

The pain within the body, the pain recorded in My loving head, the pain sent by a network of nerves in My body, now records the final blows, the nails in the hands and feet, the pain being recorded from every thorn that pierced My skull, every gash to My body, the pain, the pain, the pain - a network of signals and pain, running through My body and the final hour, the pains recorded on the cross, arms outstretched - a surrendering to all pain. I surrendered to a body laden with pain.

You focus on your little problems, your little aches and pains. You discuss them and show the world your pin pricks and sufferings.

Do you want to know holiness and love? They gave Me vinegar mixed with gall. This was their offering. They gave Me a cross. They crowned My head with a crown of thorns.

This, My dear ones, is suffering, My beloved souls, I gave My life for and this is their return.

A severing of My nerves, the final blows to all the aches and pains recorded in My nervous system. This was one of the final blows - the rusted nails pounded into My hands.

You will feel little aches and pains in your hands and feet to remind you of this message. Your understanding of the immense pain within will deepen. What was visible to the eye on My battered body was nothing compared to the pains within. I gave My all. I gave My insides, My mind, My Heart, wounded for the love of men.

All functions in the body were stopped.

The final curtain, blood and water pouring out from My Heart, show that all functions of the body had ended.

Messenger: All signals that carried messages of immense pain had ended, the final act of surrender for God to die to this human body and surrender His flesh.

Jesus speaks: And end, a beginning, the water and blood flowed from My Heart, the beginning of My life in the Church, life flowing into your spirit.

Messenger: Come give me life, abundant life. I thirst to be with Thee.

Jesus speaks: My blood was spent. My human flesh and blood offered as the sacrifice, the sacrifice of Calvary is now made present at every Mass.

An end, a beginning, and the grace and life flow through the sacraments in the Church. My life flows to you in the Mass. Mary, the Mediatrix of all grace, stands by the side of the altar and the grace flows from the Father, through My body offered up as a sacrifice in the Holy Spirit, given through the Mothership of Mary to you in the Church.

You stand under the cross with My Mother and you receive the gift given, My Body, My Blood.

Messenger: Man is reconciled with the Father through the Divine Person, Jesus Christ, and you receive His life poured out to you as Calvary is made present in the unbloody sacrifice of Jesus Christ.

Do you feel the graces poured out to you at this sacrifice of the Son of God at every Mass? Do you feel the presence of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit and Mary, all the angels and saints, and the souls in purgatory? Do you feel united as one at the sacrifice of Calvary sacramentally made present upon the altar through the priest? The priest who now puts on Christ and through Him the dispenser of this life given to man.

Jesus speaks: Oh, My beloved ones, love so dearly your priest. Give him such reverence. He is the chosen instrument of God and you treat him with such ordinariness. You are so blind and so dumb in your ways.

And they numbered all My bones. Each nerve carrying a message of My love of mankind, each member in My Church carrying a special message, all united as one working in harmony according to the Father's will, each carrying a message of love to one another.

The body is many members, you are the messengers of My love. Christ is the head. The message does not flow as it should when some are cut off from the Head.

They nailed My hands and feet and My nerves were severed by the nails, such pain, undescribable in words, the severing of My nerves from the body, the severing of many members from the body of Christ.

My Body given for all on the cross, the network of nerves within carrying the messages of My love to all mankind. My body covered on the outside with blood and wounded, the pain recorded within.

Your Church, covered with blood on the outside, the slaughter of innocent babies, the homosexuality, the sins of the flesh, the members that have severed themselves from the source by their sins, but the pain is carried in the nerves inside. The blood of the Lamb shed for each and every soul, the real pain carried within. The life is weakened in your Church because the love of God is so weak in many members. The messages of love are not being transmitted as they should be. Your body shows the wounds, but your pain within is the root of the problems. The pain is from the messages of love that are not being transmitted.

Unless you seek to fill your priests and sisters with the fire of God's love, fill their hearts with burning love for God, your Church will continue to show the marks of the blood shed without. I give to you these letters as a mighty medicine for this world, directed to make men's hearts burn with love of God and love of one another. The rosaries are meditations and messages given from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

These messages will make men's hearts burn with fire for love of God.

You have ignored the importance of these letters.

I send to you the mighty medicine to heal a hurting world.

My priests and religious need these messages. The love of God will be transmitted to the Church from these messages when you circulate these letters.

The devil has blocked the minds of men involved in these messages because of their importance to the world and the Church.

I am speaking to you Fr. Carter to help to get these messages published and circulated as soon as possible. I give to you a mighty medicine for a sick world.

Read St. Thomas Aquinas about the medicine for the sick Church.

You know what these messages have done for you. I am Jesus. I give to you the mighty medicine for a sick world, for a sick Church, rosaries and letters from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

Your Church shows the wounds of bloodshed, abortion, homosexuality, sins of the flesh, murder of little children's minds with sex education in Catholic schools and you hold back the gifts of God's love I am giving to the Church and this world.

My arms were weak and wounded but the final blow as the nail put in My hand. It severed the nerves.

The final blow is the bloodshed in the Church, the slaughtering of children's minds in Catholic schools. My children are pure and innocent. They are not being taught messages of God's love, they are being taught messages of sick sex and coldness.

Men's hearts have turned cold. They have been severed from the life of the body. The body is decaying from within. Only with the love of God enkindled in men's hearts will this bloodshed stop.

I beg you to publish and circulate these messages in the Church. I am Jesus. I am giving you the mighty medicine for the world. Your body wears the marks of the bloodshed, only with messages of My on-fire love will it stop.

Mary leads you to Jesus. Never is she the end. The Father has a plan. Mary's messages have led men and will lead men to Jesus. Satan has tried to stop all efforts to publish and circulate these messages. I am the Almighty God. The funds will come when you circulate and publish these messages and rosaries under the Shepherds of Christ Publishing. I am working with Fr. Carter and Rita as messenger to renew the Church and the world. Each messenger has a very vital role in the Father's plan. The significance of these messages are being overlooked. You are not studying the messages as a whole and their content. There are five unpublished Blue Books and more than four Rosary Books which I and My Mother have given to this world in the last 14 months. I have also given 15 songs of My love. I am begging you to see to the recording and publishing of this music. I beg you to listen. This is the mighty medicine for the Church and the world to draw men to the burning love of Jesus. Please harken to My call. I will send you the money. You must study and read these messages. This is a fulfillment of Fatima - these messages were given to bring priests to the burning love of Jesus. I am Jesus, your beloved Savior.

(end of June 26, 1995 message)

Jesus speaks: You must be careful regarding the help you receive. You must stay rooted in the truth, My Word and the Commandments are My truth. There is a lot of ill-advised help out there. Alcoholics and addicted people need to admit they have problems, they must seek to be healed. They must pray for the right help. You need one another. You must help one another to live in the truth. I give you My Shepherds of Christ Movement. You are a family living to love and serve your God, living in truth. The world is teaching so many untruths.

I am Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the Flock, come to Me, and I will heal you. You must admit the truth. You must seek help. I love you so much.


Since sin entered the world you cannot trust everyone. In the Reign of the Sacred Heart all will be trustworthy. Who would have thought Cain would kill his brother? The devil lurks at the door wanting to devour My Shepherd children. You must encourage them to pray. Do not give up. You cannot do much with very willful older children. But, parents of the young ones, make their prayers a vital part of their lives. See that they know Jesus and Mary and their love as soon as it is possible. Show babies pictures. Fold their hands. Tell them of God the Father and their heavenly Mother.

You must be prudent, do not become overly cautious, but you must monitor their activities, television shows, books, play mates, etc.

The Church is the Body of Christ

"... one of the truths that is emphasized by this concept is the idea of community. The communion that binds the members of the Church together is, in turn, connected with that wider idea of community that embraces the whole of mankind.

"The millions and millions of people the world over make up what might be called the world community. The members of this cosmic community are supposed to live in a basic love for one another, united in bonds of mutual support and interdependence. This is true because God has created persons as social beings. We are not intended to cut an isolated path through life. We are meant to walk hand in hand with each other, to live within a societal structure, to help others in many different ways. What is more, we must also realize that, in achieving our destiny, we receive much aid, support, and love from others. There are all too many striking examples of how the modern world has failed to live community -- more than enough to make us agonize over man's inhumanity toward his fellow human beings. But there are also many beautiful and ongoing examples of how the world has succeeded in living community -- enough to strengthen our belief in the basic goodness of the human heart.

"The leader in helping form a better community among the members of the human family is the Body of Christ. God has established the Church as a leaven for the development of a graced society of human beings. The bonds of union that hold the human race together have been strengthened by the redemptive work of Christ. Despite the fact that many do not realize it, there is only one fundamental community that embraces everybody -- and it is Christic. The Church is, in turn, a great channel of grace that deepens this Christic image of the world society."

Response to God's Love, Rev. Edward Carter, S.J., p. 67-68.

Mary and the Church

"'Mary is present in the Church as the Mother of Christ, and at the same time as that Mother whom Christ in the mystery of the Redemption, gave to humanity in the person of the Apostle John. Thus, in her new motherhood in the Spirit, Mary embraces each and every one in the Church, and embraces each and every one through the Church. In this sense Mary, Mother of the Church, is also the Church's model. Indeed, as Paul VI hopes and asks, the Church must draw 'from the Virgin Mother of God the most authentic form of perfect imitation of Christ.'" (Pope John Paul II)

"In this extremely meaningful passage from his encyclical, Redemptoris Mater (The Mother of the Redeemer), Pope John Paul II tells us that Mary is the Mother of Christ, that she is the Mother of the Church, that she is Mother of each of us in and through the Church, and that she is the Church's model. All of these truths are most intimately connected.

"Being Mother of Christ, Mary is also spiritual Mother of His members whom Christ has formed into His body, the Church. She is also model of the Church as all good mothers are models for their children. Mary, the best of mothers, is the perfect exemplar, the perfect model, of what it means to be a follower of Christ. She guides the entire Church in greater assimilation to Christ."

Mother at Our Side, Rev. Edward Carter, S.J., p. 68.

Messenger: From these two excerpts we can realize more fully Mary's role in the Church.

Jeremiah 17:5-11
A group of wisdom sayings

Yahweh says this,
'Accursed be anyone
    who trusts in human beings,
who relies on human strength
and whose heart turns from Yahweh.
Such a person is like scrub
    in the wastelands:
when good comes, it does not affect him
since he lives in the parched places
    of the desert,
uninhabited, salt land.

'Blessed is anyone who trusts in Yahweh,
with Yahweh to rely on.
Such a person is like a tree by the waterside
that thrusts its roots to the stream:
when the heat comes it has nothing to fear,
its foliage stays green;
untroubled in a year of drought,
it never stops bearing fruit.

'The heart is more devious
    than any other thing,
and is depraved;
    who can pierce its secrets?
I, Yahweh, search the heart,
test the motives,
to give each person what his conduct
and his actions deserve.

'The partridge will hatch eggs
    it has not laid.
No different is the person
    who gets riches unjustly:
his days half done, they will desert him
and he prove a fool after all.'

Questions for married couples and others in intimate relationships:

Q: How do I feel I can more appropriately serve the Body of Christ through prayer? How can we serve the Body of Christ by staying connected in our hearts all day through the Morning Offering?
