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: This is a special day, for I believe it was on this date of June that Jesus gave Father Carter a direction to go to Sheila & Steve's farm in Indiana. We got lost in China, Indiana, on the way home. We turned around in the little church parking lot and laughed because we were in China!

Soon we discovered the church was available, and the events unfolded for us to acquire St. Anthony's Church in China, Indiana. At Mass that day there were miraculous happenings that indicated a special day for the merging of our hearts with Their two Hearts.

Oh Sacred Heart of Jesus, we adore You.

Immaculate Heart of Mary, we love you.

Dear Jesus, thank You for our life, for all of Your gifts to us, especially for giving us Yourself in the Eucharist. Thank You for giving us the church in China, Indiana.

China is the place we have the 13th prayer meetings.

In July we will have adoration of the Blessed Sacrament from July 12th at 12:00 noon, China time, until July 14th, 12:00 noon, China time.

Jesus speaks: My children, please come to China, Indiana for this special time July 12 - July 14, 1999. I will grant great graces to all who come and to those who pray in union at this special time.

I want to take you into My Heart.

Please pray My prayers (Shepherds of Christ Prayer Manual) all through this period.

Give your hearts to Me and to My Mother.

Messenger: The Servants of the Good Shepherd are men giving their lives to Jesus, wishing a deep spousal union with Him. Through a life of prayer and service they aid the Shepherds of Christ Ministry in spreading the materials, including prayer manuals, priestly newsletter, rosaries and rosary meditations. They also pray for the priests, the renewal of the Church and the world.

Jesus speaks: I love you, My Servants, I call you to a deep intimate union with Me, in adoration before the blessed Sacrament and daily Mass and in prayer and service.

I love you, Jesus.

Scourging at Pillar

  1. Messenger: To be wrapped in rapture, in the embrace of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, to be in that place where there is no wanting, to be in a place where there is total peace, to be wrapped by love itself, to be in the deepest chamber of the Heart of Christ, to be filled with everything, to be satisfied--this is what we will have for all eternity if we love and serve Him. His Heart is a little heaven on earth. He wants us to go to His Heart now and to share in this deep burning love that He has for us, but we are afraid. We do not want to get too close to our beloved Jesus, which keeps us at an arm's length from Him. He is thirsting, thirsting, thirsting, for love from souls that He loves and how few souls come to Him and outpour their burning love back to Him. How He waits for that one precious soul to come, to be with Him as He is waiting in the tabernacle for that soul to come and to be before the tabernacle and say, "Jesus, I love You. I love You. I love You," to recognize Him as alive and present with His Divine love. He wants us to be one in our hearts, but we are rigid. At the Mass, we are rigid. We are not connected. It is in the Shepherds of Christ movement, as more and more consecrate their hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, that we will be united in one heart, that we will be united in the Hearts of love, the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, that our hearts will burn for love for each other. We are one body in Him. Look at how we are. We beep our horns at each other and say vile things and many curse the Lord. Are our hearts cold or are our hearts a burning furnace as Jesus wants us to be?

    Jesus speaks: You are My soldiers of love. I am asking you this day to consecrate your hearts all through the day, to give yourself to Me. I am Jesus. I gave Myself for love of you.

  2. Messenger: See Jesus at the pillar and experience in all your senses this picture. Do you hear the blows as they hit the flesh of Jesus? Do you see Him clearly with your eyes? Do you see the light in the room. Do you hear the angry cries of the men? This is the Almighty God, bound at the pillar, in a human body, nailed to a cross. At any second, He could have released Himself, but because of His furnace of burning love within His most Sacred Heart, He gave Himself for love of us.

    Jesus speaks: I am Jesus. I am giving Myself to you this day, but I am rejected and forgotten and ignored, treated with indifference, treated with hatred. I am treated as a dead object. I am calling you, I am alive, I am alive, I am alive and I am begging you, My beloved apostles, to spread the good news to this earth. Many souls will suffer the pains of hell forever and ever. And as you spread this consecration, hearts will be turned to hearts of love. I am alive and I live in you.

  3. Song: "Come Unto Me All Who Are Weary..."
    Jesus speaks:
    The time is at hand, for many souls this day will be condemned forever to the fires of hell. You can forget your brothers, but I will never forget you. I love you, My beloved ones. I loved you to My death on the cross.

Excerpt from June 20, 1999 Rosary
Father's Day

(Some personal directions and information for the core chapter have been deleted).
This rosary was delivered before a group of apostles. It was received live and transcribed from the tape.

Assumption of Our Lady

  1. Mary speaks: I am Mary, your Mother, and the Father is most grateful for all of your song and the praise that you give from your heart. I speak to you, my children for I appear on the building in Florida and so many of my children have ignored me and the message I bring. Your Father is not happy with the earth. Because of your great song, you have given your Father great joy this day. He loves you, His children. And He wants the earth to be sorry for their sins. I am Mary your Mother, Mary, Mother of God, and I speak to you. My children, my children, you have delighted the Heart of your Father in heaven. Pray to Him and He will hear your prayers and answer you. Do not be afraid, my children. Even in persecution your God is so close to you. Have faith, my children, have faith in God. Move ahead, do not be worried or give in to any of the blocks that Satan may create in your path. The Father will hear you. He will help you. He will remove the blocks and help you on your way. Pray fervently for all the funds. I wish that you would acquire the building in Florida. Pray, pray, pray for this is my image building for the world and the rosary that I give to you is this rosary of March the 30, 1995. When I delivered this rosary my Heart, my children, sunk within my chest. This rosary is very dear to my Heart, for it expresses the sentiments of the Mother's Heart that cries for her children in pain.
  1. Mary speaks: I was assumed into heaven. I want to be united to you so that you will act as God wants you to act as the little children of the New Eve. Pray this rosary often my children, it will help you to understand more the conditions of this earth. I am Mary your Mother, and I cry to you from the rosary of March 30, 1995:

    Excerpt from March 30, 1995 Rosary

    Mary speaks: My Heart bleeds and I cry bloody tears for the slaughter that is happening to the young ones. As my Child was a Baby in my arms, I call out to you to pray fervently for the little ones, for they are being persecuted far beyond anyone's comprehension from the ways of this world. My precious little children, I speak to you my children, for the children of this earth are being persecuted far beyond anyone's comprehension. They do not even know the ways of the world and how their little minds have been twisted through the television and the media and the movies.

    (End of excerpt from March 30, 1995 Rosary)

    Mary speaks: I am Mary your Mother, I ask you to please circulate the messages that I have given from my site in Florida. I fervently ask you to make all attempts to publish these books of messages. Please, I am Mary your Mother. The world needs to hear the messages given to the earth from heaven. You will receive funds when these messages are published.

  2. Mary speaks: I do not come as a Mother to taunt and to hassle you, my children. I come as a Mother to warn so that the world will hear the words of heaven. For these are the words that heaven speaks to the world that must circulate. And the devil has caused so many interferences in the messages that we wish to get into all of the hands of the apostles in this Movement. My children, my children, you must read the messages daily, for in the messages you are given the directions from heaven to follow. If you do not read them, you may operate in a way which will cause the Movement great problems. I am fervently urging all apostles to read all the messages daily, so that you do not operate in a way that hurts my Son's Movement.
  3. Mary speaks: I ask that the first book be published and sent to all members and to the apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus. I ask you to pray for Africa, for it is from Africa that there will be great prayer power and that centers will be in the churches, little cities of light in which men will pray, in which the priests will be united with the people. Do not underestimate the power of the foreign mailing for it is very, very, very important. Follow up on the prayer chapters. Try to get the prayer manuals in the hands of many priests and people who will pray before the Blessed Sacrament if at all possible, praying these prayers and the rosary. Pray to my Spouse, the Holy Spirit, for He will help to fill them more and more with the fire of God's love.

8.     Mary speaks: You are little children of the earth. So many are held captive 
        in the snare of the devil. I request again that Harold sing the first verse of  
the Ave Maria. I request that you pray to me as never before. I am your
        heavenly Mother. On July the 5th, all must unite in their hearts in fervent
        prayer for this celebration at my site in Florida. All that can possibly 
        attend are urged to attend, but see to it that your duties are taken care 
        of. Do not do anything that is against God's will to get there.

        SONG: Ave Maria (sung by Harold Kellner)

Mary speaks: ... For five years I have called to
     Southern Florida
to respond more fervently 
      to the requests of my Son, Jesus and the Blue 
      Books. I wish that southern Florida can more fully 
      respond in helping to spread the message of my 
      Son given in the priestly newsletter and begin 
      the prayer chapters. I am a Mother that wants 
      peace for her children of this earth. I am a 
      Mother that has cried out to you, my children. 
      Please help me in any way possible to spread the 
      message of my Son, for He calls the earth to come 
      to consecration. He has further extended this plea 
      that I made at Fatima to the children of the earth. 
      And do you not listen to my Son when He comes 
      and He appears and He speaks to you on October 
      13, 1996? So many years ago and today on the 
      13th, He cries out to the children of the earth. 
      Special gifts were given to all who came to China, 
      Indiana on this 13th. And it will continue, but you 
      must pray fervently, for the devil will do all that 
      He can to stop this celebration on the 13th of each 
      month. Do not fear. Pray, and know that your 
      heavenly Father hears the words that you pray 
      to Him. I am Mary your Mother. I am the 
      Mother of God, Mother of divine grace, 
      Mother most pure, Mother most holy, 
      Mother of the human race.

9.   Mary speaks: I further wish that prayer services be
      conducted at my farm in Kentucky on Tom's farm. 
      I wish that he pray with several others, that a 
      statue be erected to my Immaculate Heart. 

  1. Mary speaks: There have been many places where my requests have been blocked. For example, I asked for prayers in the city of Falmouth, and they did not listen. I have requested the prayers of my Son in the Shepherds of Christ Prayer Manual be prayed all over this earth. Let this be your primary concern: to spread the priestly newsletter and to spread the prayer manuals so that people will pray, especially before the Blessed Sacrament. But this is not to say that I am encouraging you to let go of the other items that We have requested that you circulate. I am requesting that you do all that you can to encourage prayer chapters to be begun before the Blessed Sacrament. If this is impossible, encourage the people to pray wherever they can have a prayer service.

(End of excerpt from June 20, 1999 Rosary)

Messenger: MARY WISHES SOUTHERN FLORIDA TO HELP IN THIS mission of spreading the Blue Books and the priestly newsletter and beginning Prayer Chapters.
