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.

April 16, 1999

Luke 23:28

But Jesus turned to them and said, 'Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for me; rather weep for yourselves and for your children.


Messenger: I felt at Mass today as if I were bleeding inside, praying so hard to reach Mary's children. I begged the Father to hear me in the name of Jesus. I told Him that I was weeping for our children. Why can't we spread the message of yesterday to the world?

GOOD SHEPHERD

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.

QUEEN OF PEACE



MARY'S PEACE PLAN
  1. Pray the daily rosary.
  2. Consecrate your hearts to my Heart and the Heart of my Son.
  3. Observe the First Saturday devotion.
  4. Make reparation to Our Hearts.
Our Lady of Clearwater Bluiding

Mary speaks: I wish a card with this message side by side. I am Mary your Mother. I wish this circulated as it appears. On the back of the card should be the short consecration, the rosary and the mysteries and how to pray it, and in BIG PRINT the address to order prayer manuals and the First Saturday card. This should be done immediately. The time is nigh, for sinful men will not listen. I wish children in schools, (all the children in a school) praying the rosary and consecrating their hearts. One school with 400 students praying for peace and attending Mass and praying the rosary can make great reparation to God for the sins of the men on this earth. I have begged you to reach the school children in such a manner. I am their spiritual Mother. The children will be fed if you hear me. They will help to bring down great grace on the world. Why, why, why have you ignored my message I have given to this messenger since 1995? You are jealous and souls are being lost. Why do you not spread the rosary to school children? Why do you not teach children to pray in a body? They are young and pure and open, and their prayers are so powerful. You feed them garbage and then try to keep them from dying a spiritual death.

You are all mixed up, you feed them worldly pleasures that are poison to their souls and when I cry, cry out to you, you block me, because you do not want to obey me and pray as I have instructed at Fatima.

Please, I beg you to:

1. Circulate rosaries and Rosary Aves to schools.

2. Have the children's rosary book reprinted. More and more books need to be printed.

3. Go to the schools and show the children how to use the rosary book and the Aves. Show them the Fatima movie.

4. Do not go and speak in Catholic schools of messages that have not been approved by the Church.

Adhere to the message I gave at Fatima and to Imprimatur material. You are speaking for me, this is what I desire, I will make it clear. I do not ever wish Shepherds of Christ material mixed with other material. When visiting a school, you must restrict yourself to this single mission. Any untruth from other sources can drastically damage the Movement. There must be absolute purity in this mission. Do not use this time in the school to speak as a spokesperson for Shepherds of Christ delivering your personal theories or ideas of your own or of other visionaries. My mission was made clear at Fatima. I speak today to tell them that if they want peace they must obey my peace plan.

MARY'S PEACE PLAN

  1. Pray the daily rosary.
  2. Consecrate your hearts to my Heart and the Heart of my Son.
  3. Observe the First Saturday devotion.
  4. Make reparation to Our Hearts.

I wish the school rosary brochure to have the Imprimatur and circulated in schools. It can be circulated at present as it is. I gave the instructions to compile this brochure.

A person going to a school is to use Imprimatur material. You are to adhere strongly to the material given. Do not waiver. No person is a spokesperson for Shepherds of Christ unless appointed by my Son, Jesus, or by me. You are going to teach the rosary with the use of Rosary Aves and Imprimatur meditations for children. NO PERSON IS TO TALK FREELY about his personal theories, or to interpret Scripture or Church documents when distributing Shepherds of Christ material. All contact with schools and churches is to be done according to the dictates of the Church and its laws.

I send you to the schools to teach the children about the prayers my Son has given in the prayer manual, how to consecrate their hearts, how to pray the rosary, how to pray the Stations and the Seven Sorrows. I send you to reach them with the messages of Fatima given in Father Carter's book, The Spirituality of Fatima and Medjugorje. You will damage the Movement if you speak freely of your personal ideas. Every word that is published in Shepherds of Christ has been carefully discerned for theological accuracy. You are sheep, my Son is the Good Shepherd, this is His Movement. If you do not wish to follow His commands and His directives, you should not speak for Shepherds of Christ. You are not to speak freely as you see it, you are to adhere to the discerned material and spread this to the world. You should not seek to raise yourself as an authority above others. You are a messenger from God telling the world about the prayers in the handbook, the priestly newsletter, the consecration, the rosary, the rosary meditations. When visiting a school you must guard what you say so that it is the absolute truth. You are to adhere to the information we have given. Sometimes you think what you feel is right and it is not right. The world has veered so far from the truth, and you have been raised in this world. Everything published by Shepherds of Christ has been checked for theological accuracy.

You must reach the school children and teach them to pray from the heart. They need to pray the rosary, consecrate their hearts and pray the prayers my Son has given.

Help me. I cry for my little children.

Help me. You must be obedient. Do you come in my Son's name or your own name?

Sheep follow, you must adhere to the truth and the guidelines of the Church.

Never disobey any rules of the Church. You are under the authority of the Church.

Messages can be circulated in other places besides churches and schools.

I am Mary your Mother, help me. Do not go off on your own and do things your way.

God has all the power. It is in obedience He will bless you.

I love you,

Mary your Mother

Mother of the Church


Question for married couples and others in intimate relationships:

Q: How do I feel I can better serve Him by praying daily to know the truth? How can we as a couple be a powerful instrument in the world by always speaking the truth?

1. The Two Hearts and the Mass

    (To be read by leader or a family member)

We are living in the Age of the Two Hearts. The Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

We must take refuge in Jesus' Heart and in Mary's Heart. In dwelling in the pure and holy Hearts of Jesus and Mary we will be transformed more and more in the image of Jesus.

The greatest source of growth in devotion to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary is the Eucharist. We should attend Mass often, daily if possible. What a great gift God has given to us in the Eucharist! Many people do not realize the great gift God gives us in the Mass. Think of it! People are privileged to offer the Sacrifice of the Mass together with Jesus. So many prefer to do other things than attend Mass.

Jesus wants us to go to Mass and receive Him in the Eucharist. He gives Himself to us. In the Eucharist He comes to us Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity. He longs for us to come to the Eucharist and receive Him. We receive the greatest graces to be transformed more into His image and likeness. We must pray for a deeper understanding of the Mass. We must go to Him through the pure and Immaculate Heart of Mary. God gives Himself to us. Do we long to receive Him?

2. SONG: I Love You Jesus

3. PROCESSION - to the enthroning of the Sacred Heart Picture

(All in attendance can be lead by the leaders and family to the place of the Sacred Heart picture.)

4. SONG:

To Jesus Heart All Burning or I Love You, Jesus

5. PRAYER: Apostles Creed

All: I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended into hell; the third day he arose again from the dead; he ascended into heaven; sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Catholic Church, the communion of Saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.

6. Enthronement of the Sacred Heart

    (To be read by leader or family member)

We are gathered here to honor our King, Jesus Christ, the Son of God. He is our most honored guest. He loves us so ardently and wants to be King of our home and King of our hearts. We all join together and most graciously welcome Him in our midst. We love You, dear Sacred Heart of Jesus. We honor You this day and are privileged that You, God, love us so much.

Please help us all grow in our knowledge and love of You. We honor You. We praise You. We adore You, and we love You.

We ask You to come and dwell in our hearts. As our King and the center of our lives, we forever want to be with You, most Sacred Heart of Jesus, we love You so much.

Come and be with every member of this family in a special way. Guard us in our undertakings. Dear Holy Spirit, lead us to the on-fire love of Jesus' Heart.

Mary, our most loving Mother, as you carried Jesus in your womb, you who cared for Him as a child, you who forever stood by Him and walked with Him on Calvary, you, dear Mary, as you stood under His cross and suffered so for love of Him and us, you who held His lifeless body under the cross, you who saw His glorified Body after the resurrection and watched Him ascend into heaven, you, dear Mary, you who know this most Sacred, tender, loving Heart, place us so gently into His most Sacred Heart.

Protect and lead every person present and their families to this intense union with your Son. We pray for the priests the world over, Your special anointed sons, to lead all children to the love of Your most Sacred Heart.

May the Sacred Heart of Jesus forever reign in the hearts of all people through the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

We praise You, we honor You, our beloved Jesus. We tenderly love Your Heart so!

Dear Father, thank You for Your beloved Son. Thank You for Your gifts to us. We thank You for giving us a sharing in Your divine life through baptism. We are Your beloved children. Draw us ever closer to union with God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit and Mary, in communion with the angels and saints. Amen.

7. Images of the Hearts of Jesus and Mary

    (To be read by leader or family member)

We should have pictures and statues of the Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart in our homes. This will greatly help us to give honor to Their Hearts. Churches and chapels should have these images.

Study the Promises of the Sacred Heart given to St. Margaret Mary.

8. Find Refuge in the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus

    (To be read by leader or family member)

We want the Sacred Heart of Jesus to bless our home in a special way. We ask You, Sacred Heart of Jesus, to bless our home. We make You the King and Center of our hearts and our home. May the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary reign in our hearts. Please help us spread the devotion to the Sacred Heart. In #12 of this booklet you will see the promises given by Jesus to St. Margaret Mary for those who are devoted to His Sacred Heart. We should hang pictures of the Sacred Heart and Mary's Heart throughout our homes.

When we read the promises of the Sacred Heart and circulate them among our friends, many people will want to have a devotion to Jesus' Sacred Heart.

We can carry the picture of the Sacred Heart and Mary's Heart with us. If we look at His picture, we will be reminded of the promises. When we have a difficult day, it will help us to look at Their pictures.

It may help us to pray the Litanies to the Sacred Heart and the Blessed Virgin.

Jesus loved us so much He died for us. From the cross, He gave us Mary as our spiritual Mother.

Mary leads us to a closer union with Jesus. Mary will take us to the depth of the Heart of Jesus. Mary loves us so much. She is our loving Mother. Mary is pure and tender of Heart. It is through Mary we will experience such intimacy with God. It is through her Immaculate Heart that we will be led into the deepest union with the one, triune God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Jesus' Heart is burning with love for us.

(Song: I Am Your Sacred Heart)

9. Consecrate Your Churches, Homes and Workplaces to the Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart

    (To be read by leader or family member)

We should consecrate the human race to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. We should enthrone Jesus as King in all homes, churches and businesses.

June is the month of the Sacred Heart. Jesus must reign, be KING, of all hearts. Jesus' promises to St. Margaret Mary Alacoque are given. We should read them. We can consecrate our churches and places of prayer to the Sacred Heart of Jesus that He will reign there.

First Friday is a special day of devotion to the Sacred Heart. We have these booklets available that people will consecrate their homes, churches and businesses to the Sacred Heart. Will you help us encourage all to consecrate their homes, businesses and churches to the Sacred Heart? Will you help us spread these booklets?

We want the Sacred Heart of Jesus to reign and the Immaculate Heart of Mary to triumph in all hearts. Will you pray for this with us and help us to spread this material?

Recommend to people that they display to be honored pictures of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

May is the month of Mary and June is the month of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Tell all about this consecration. During these months we can make a special effort to do this.

We can gather our friends and sing, "To Jesus' Heart All Burning" and "Immaculate Mary". May these two Hearts of love give all members of the human race peace, joy and love in their hearts.

We should adore Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. This is such a gift God gives to us. Jesus loved us so much He gave His life for His precious souls. Jesus wants the souls to come to Him and love Him.

We are so gifted to receive Jesus in Holy Communion. Jesus has a Heart filled with love on fire for men.

The more we united to Jesus, the more we will become one with the Father and know His love.

Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life.

We can offer a holy hour for the indifference, ingratitude and sacrileges committed against Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, the Sacrament of His greatest love.

        “Lord Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the flock, I consecrate myself to Your most Sacred Heart. From Your pierced Heart the Church was born, the Church You have called me, as a member of Shepherds of Christ Associates, to serve in a most special way. You reveal Your Heart as a symbol of Your love in all its aspects, including Your most special love for me, whom You have chosen as Your companion in this most important work.

In a return of love, I give myself entirely to your motherly love and protection. You followed Jesus perfectly. You are His first and perfect disciple. Teach me to imitate you in the putting on of Christ. Be my motherly intercessor so that, through your Immaculate Heart, I may be guided to an ever closer union with the pierced Heart of Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the flock. Amen.”
