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.

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.


Messenger: From the book Response to God's Love, written by our founder I quote:

"The Christian community is a terrestrial reflection of the ultimate and absolute community --- namely, the Trinity. In a special way, we are privileged to give witness to Trinitarian life, a life of divine intimacy and loving. From all eternity, the persons of the Trinity are united in the most intimate bonds of knowledge and love…

"Because the life of the Trinity is person-centered, so must the life of the Christian community be person-centered ...

"The Christian community, in turn, develops when those who make up that community develop as authentic Christians. Just as each divine person contributes perfectly to the community life of the Trinity according to the perfect fullness of his personhood, so each Christian contributes to community life in proportion to the degree of his or her personal development …"

Messenger: The perfect community is the Trinity. The Father, Son and Holy Spirit communicate in perfect love and are three Persons in One Nature.

Every community must try to be like this perfect community.

Jesus speaks: I write for you, since sin entered the world, the world is full of imperfections. Communities are imperfect. Family life is dysfunctional.

I come to open your eyes to the workings of Satan in your lives.

I unveil his ways and show you his tactics.

I lead you into a deeper oneness with Me.

You see good, you see evil, you follow My way, I am the Good Shepherd, I lead you to peace.


John 14: 6

I am the Way; I am Truth and Life.


Jesus speaks: I am unveiling the workings of Satan in your lives.

I am unveiling the Scriptures.

I am the Truth. I show you the truth.


John 16: 12-15

I still have many things to say to you
but they would be too much for you
   to bear now.
However, when the Spirit of truth comes
he will lead you to the complete truth,
since he will not be speaking
   of his own accord,
but will say only what he has been told;
and he will reveal to you
   the things to come.
He will glorify me,
since all he reveals to you
will be taken from what is mine.
Everything the Father has is mine;
that is why I said:
all he reveals to you
will be taken from what is mine.


April 4, 2000 Second Message - Healing Day

Jesus speaks: In shades of light and darkness I write to you, for when asked by my messenger for a writing to heal the Movement and the world, I say this, I have taken you as a little bird under My wing and revealed secrets of My Heart never given to human men before in writings of love, and you grumble and check Me out and fight My messenger and My Movement and I am God. The wisdom found in these messages given through her has not changed your hearts yet, for you question and look for your answers from the men who are truly being prompted by Satan to stop you.

I healed the sick, I cured the blind and they put Me to death. To those who hear My word in My writings they will listen and the power of God will enter their souls and they will be a leader to the darkened world. For how can one be a leader for God if they continue to walk in ways that will lead others to darkness, for I am light. To be in the light, you must follow the light, you are not a leader at all, if you question My ways and tear My Movement to shreds by your own confusion. One more Mary on the building on December 17, 1996, and the book released on that same day in rainbow color would not convince you, and yet you call yourself one who leads. Those who fight My messages are hurting others who when reading the messages will be lead to the truth. I am God. I come to take you to the depth of My Soul. When I called you to build up My Body and I gave you a messenger, the jealousy that afflicted so many entered the heart. You do not want one above you delivering messages. You want to know, but you won't trust My message.

I changed your hearts in so many ways. I taught you to be so one with Me in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. I gave you a life filled with deeper life in Me than ever before and you question My ways.

My men, the blind man didn't see and then He did see. My men, the alcoholic lives like that blind man, he lives his life controlled by the disease that eats away at him and his family. Some in the family enable him to drink by their attitude. They mean well, but in fact they make the whole family sick by hiding the truth.

I am the Way, the Truth and the Life. After a woman engaged in five so-called marriages, she began to think maybe something might be wrong with her when she had unsuccessfully been able to relate.

Because relating patterns are learned and taught in the early years of life primarily, many do so many dysfunctional things that paralyze their lives because they will not believe they could be doing something wrong.

Take the alcoholic, the whole family becomes sick many times, and they hide the disease from others on the outside because they may feel ashamed, but they do not admit the reality of the cancer that grows in their own lives because one will not change. Any person that may recognize this enormous problem is so silenced, and children must live in the environment racking up pain in their wounded souls for life.

The man or woman with this disease is blind.

He can justify his behavior and make others victims so he can blame things on them.

He cannot see. He is blinded by the disease. His body craves the alcohol. He will not handle the pain inside himself. If he deals with others intimately, very often he projects his hatred on them so he can continue in his ways. No person can change him, only himself, but because of his sickness and usually an enabler who comes to his aid, he can destroy the childhood joy of his children and tear their lives apart.

The only way the alcoholic is cured spiritually is when he himself recognizes his pain and starts to deal with his disease, turning his life over to God. He must realize that the disease is out of control and only God and His might can restore him to a life of peace and joy. He must seek the truth. The answer is in the truth. The answer is in embracing the problem and facing the truth. Some people go to their deaths living lives of solitude or staying in relationships that wound the lives of all they touch.

In the Reign of the Sacred Heart, all will be truthful.


Revelation 21: 22-27

I could not see any temple in the city since the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb were themselves the temple, and the city did not need the sun or the moon for light, since it was lit by the radiant glory of God, and the Lamb was a lighted torch for it. The nations will come to its light and the kings of the earth will bring it their treasures. Its gates will never be closed by day --- and there will be no night there --- and the nations will come, bringing their treasure and their wealth. Nothing unclean may come into it: no one who does what is loathsome or false, but only those who are listed in the Lamb's book of life.


Messenger: Another translation of this says, "…but nothing unclean will enter it, nor anyone who does abominable things or tells lies".

Jesus speaks: What makes the Alcoholic program work when persons use it is that they realize their dependency on God, that God has all the power. They want to only do God's will, they take an inventory of their whole lives, they admit their errors to God and to another, they make amends for their errors as best as they can.   They continue to take this inventory and when they are wrong they promptly admit it. I am your God. A person must go to the inner core of the self and quit blaming others for their failings. You are to be God-like, loving one another.


Luke 2: 34-35

Simeon blessed them and said to Mary his mother, 'Look, he is destined for the fall and for the rise of many in Israel, destined to be a sign that is opposed -- and a sword will pierce your soul too -- so that the secret thoughts of many may be laid bare.'


Jesus speaks: The thoughts of many will be laid bare. I have given you a Contact Center in this world where you are to pray gathered as a body under My Mother's image. Let your hearts be pure that you may walk in My way. A cancer grows and grows. At one point it is very small and rapidly it grows and the person must surrender. All that will remain if the cancer cannot be stopped is the life here-after, for the body dies. The cancer takes over. You say "Why didn't you stop it". One must surrender if a person has done all he can and it can't be stopped. Some at this point still remain bitter and hateful, blaming others for everything. Some change their hearts. Some go all through life and will try to change everyone around them rather than change themselves.

A leader leads others. One who will not walk in My ways of love and wants division, teaches others by his very life. I am Jesus Christ.

This is My Movement to aid the Church in an enormous way in renewal and to help the world to change.

The apostles are leaders, I give you messages to unveil the workings of Satan in your lives.

To some, no signs I give will matter.

To others that believe, they do not need signs.

I have cried and lamented. What happens today in your life, how you act in the Movement, will affect all the world and the manner in which you teach today will be carried on. I come to purify, I come to unite. Satan comes to divide, to keep you stuck in your old ways.

I give you My garden in Florida. I want the young to come to the foot of Our Lady Clothed with the Sun. I want My crucifix to be completed so that men will see the glory in My death, for I come that men will be made whole.

I come to lead you into My ways of loving. If you are spreading My words and continue with division and hatred in your hearts doing My work, or you do it for your own name, you are not serving Me and you will hurt My mission.

When people see you, and you speak to them, you open the door, what you put forth must be the truth.

The alcoholic twists the truth. The whole family hides the truth. You must say what is true. Satan works in division and in lies.

I have opened My Heart raw and revealed My inner most secrets to you.

The blind man never saw until he was healed. They argued and did not see the miracle in the cure.

In John's Gospel Chapter 11 is the Man Born Blind.

In John's Gospel this is followed by the Good Shepherd.

I tell you this, when a man is sick in sin, when he is diseased with alcoholism or other addictive diseases, he does not see so clearly. He rationalizes and is caught in a trap of Satan's snare.

This is My Movement to help renew the Church and the world. The truth must be in you. My men, you must work to purify your souls. It is easy to blame your lifelong problems on your brothers.

In My Movement I come to light the way and lead the people into oneness.

This is My mission in the Shepherds of Christ.


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.

Father,
I want those you have given me
to be with me where I am,
so that they may always see my glory
which you have given me
because you loved me
before the foundation of the world.
Father, Upright One,
the world has not known you,
but I have known you,
and these have known
that you have sent me.
I have made your name known to them
and will continue to make it known,
so that the love with which you loved me
   may be in them,
and so that I may be in them.


John 18: 35-40

Pilate answered, 'Am I a Jew? It is your own people and the chief priests who have handed you over to me: what have you done?' Jesus replied, 'Mine is not a kingdom of this world; if my kingdom were of this world, my men would have fought to prevent my being surrendered to the Jews. As it is, my kingdom does not belong here.' Pilate said, 'So, then you are a king?' Jesus answered, 'It is you who say that I am a king. I was born for this, I came into the world for this, to bear witness to the truth; and all who are on the side of truth listen to my voice.' 'Truth?' said Pilate. 'What is that?' And so saying he went out again to the Jews and said, 'I find no case against him. But according to a custom of yours I should release one prisoner at the Passover; would you like me, then to release for you the king of the Jews?' At this they shouted, 'Not this man,' they said, 'but Barabbas.' Barabbas was a bandit.


John 19: 7-16

The Jews replied, ‘We have a Law, and according to that Law he ought to be put to death, because he has claimed to be Son of God.’

When Pilate heard them say this his fears increased. Re-entering the Praetorium, he said to Jesus, ‘Where do you come from?’ But Jesus made no answer. Pilate then said to him, ‘Are you refusing to speak to me? Surely you know I have power to release you and I have power to crucify you?’ Jesus replied, ‘You would have no power over me at all if it had not been given you from above; that is why the man who handed me over to you has the greater guilt.’

Jesus is condemned to death

From that moment Pilate was anxious to set him free, but the Jews shouted, ‘If you set him free you are no friend of Caesar’s; anyone who makes himself king is defying Caesar.’ Hearing these words, Pilate had Jesus brought out, and seated him on the chair of judgement at a place called the Pavement, in Hebrew Gabbatha. It was the Day of Preparation, about the sixth hour. ‘Here is your king,’ said Pilate to the Jews. But they shouted, ‘Away with him, away with him, crucify him.’ Pilate said, ‘Shall I crucify your king?’ The chief priests answered, ‘We have no king except Caesar.’ So at that Pilate handed him over to them to be crucified.


Jesus speaks: Because many wanted to live their lives the way they so chose, they disobeyed the laws of the Church.

I am God, you must follow the Pope, you must obey the Commandments, you are under My feet.

Many have lead so many off, because they used their leadership positions to follow their own personal lives rather than follow God's rules.

I come to purify, to make whole, to lead men to live in the truth that it is in you through consecration.

The rules cannot be based on one man's life. Some in the Church split off because of one who failed to obey the rule that was set before him. I am God, all men must be under My feet.


I Corinthians 15: 21-26

As it was by one man that death came, so through one man has come the resurrection of the dead. Just as all die in Adam, so in Christ all will be brought to life; but all of them in their proper order: Christ the first-fruits, and next, at his coming, those who belong to him. After that will come the end, when he will hand over the kingdom to God the Father, having abolished every principality, every ruling force and power. For he is to be king until he has made his enemies his footstool, and the last of the enemies to be done away with is death, for he has put all things under his feet.


Jesus speaks: This is My mission, to rule as King. They will be My people and recognize Me as their God. They walk in My name and are humble children of the Father.


Sorrowful MotherMary's Message from the Rosary of August 27, 1996

Mary speaks: 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.

Song: O Lady of Light, shining so bright, be with us this day, guiding our way, O Lady, O Lady of Light.

Mary speaks: I appear to you as Our Mother of Sorrows.

(End of Mary's Message)
