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.


Messenger: Include Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center in 6:20 prayers.


Mary speaks: My children,

My Son Jesus and I wish you to have image rosaries. Special graces have been attached to my image when you gaze lovingly upon my image and think of your God. Special graces are given for praying the rosary. My Son and I have requested that these image rosaries be made available. There is a special, large bead image rosary in crystal and red. I desire the crystal image rosary to be designated as my special rosary. I desire this rosary be made with the original crystal beads in 8 mm, end caps and a straight crucifix of gold. I request the rosaries to look as the original beautiful rosaries. I desire my rosary to reflect the rainbow color. My Son Jesus requests rosaries in ruby red beads to remind the soul of His Blood shed for all. These rosaries are to be as the original as my Son has requested in May with a straight gold crucifix and gold links. Pray for this. I ask all of you to pray for the production of these rosaries. Rosaries of smaller stature can be sold while the supplies last. Special grace is granted while looking at my image and reflecting lovingly on your God. These rosaries can be given away for a possible donation price of $9 including shipping when it applies. Only one rosary can be given per person.

Donations are needed to maintain residency for the Shepherds of Christ in the Virgin Mary building. As of now the rent is due and the buying of this building is blocked. The Father has painted my image on this building. You do not know the gift this is. For the whole time the world existed, never before has God painted such a beautiful image permanently on a structure for such a length of time and you do not treasure this gift.

People should flock to my image by busloads to see the wonder God has given to you, and yet I cry, for it is almost impossible to maintain the residency there for the Shepherds of Christ Movement. The store, "Treasures from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary", was put there to spread the revelations to the world, to help with the renewal of the Church and the world and to help bring about the completion of my Fatima mission. I am Our Lady of Fatima in the Americas, yes Americas. The Spanish material needs to be circulated and published, the priestly newsletter sent all over the world in English and Spanish. But the printing bill is so large to go to about 70,000 priests in about 90 countries that the special 20 page newsletter Jesus wanted to reach the priests, bishops and cardinals on the spiritual life during the month of His Sacred Heart is being blocked and the funds are not there. This newsletter is important to Him. It is a synopsis of the spiritual life. He wanted it mailed during the month of June, the month of His Sacred Heart.

Oh my children, we should not have to beg you to come and see this wonder your God has given to you between the 2 Americas. The devil has blocked and blocked and blocked my mission at Fatima. Your world needs the rosary in their hands. I can only tell you one more time. There is not money to buy beads or even order the special rosaries with the image as we have requested. The rosaries with the 7 mm beads are still so beautiful and they are gold with the image. It is one of these that turned silver for the priest in China, Indiana.

A donation would help the Movement do as they are doing. The cost of shipping and making these beautiful rosaries is $9.00. You can obtain one rosary per person for as long as they are available. I want you to see the picture of these rosaries and the message included. If the funds and beads are available, the special rosaries may be available as soon as September or October.

Now I request the mailing be sent to the approximately 9000 Catholic schools offering them Walter rosaries for the youth and the Rosary Aves and consecration cards. Already more than 9000 rosaries have been requested for October. I am Our Lady of the Holy Rosary. I want my school children praying. The Parents and Children's Rosary Book is provided for these schools, the Rosary Aves, scapulars, consecration cards and a brochure about my message of Fatima that I ask be sent.

Mary speaks: Oh my children, I cry bloody tears, for you do not know the sufferings to come for offending your God. All rosaries are made by volunteer rosary makers and the beads, almost all are purchased by Shepherds of Christ for the schools and provided by Shepherds of Christ for the school rosary program. The rosaries are given away to the people who come to my image site in Florida, and there is a Rosary Factory where people learn to make these rosaries at home and bring them to the site. The Dale Rosary Helpers have made most of the rosaries in the past to help with the school mailings.

Mary speaks: Oh my children, the rosary is a tool against the devil. Pray for my special image rosary and that of my Son. Pray for all involved. Also pray for the Spanish translations and all Imprimaturs. I love you so much.

Mary speaks: Today begin your special novena of 9 days to my Immaculate Heart. My feast is July 1, 2000.

SPECIAL GATHERING UNDER THE IMAGE JULY 5, 2000.

ON THAT DATE 2 YEARS AGO A PRIEST CONSECRATED THE CHURCH AND THE WORLD TO THE SACRED HEART AND IMMACULATE HEART.

The nightly prayer meeting began daily on that day and the building was occupied solely by Shepherds of Christ and operated by Shepherds of Christ immediately afterward that month.

Pray to keep it as the Father desires.

I am your Mother Mary, I love you.

June 23, 2000 - Second Message

Messenger: The Visitation, the perfect combination, Mary the Immaculate Mother, Jesus the Sacred Heart, Son of God, visit Elizabeth.


Luke 1: 39-45

The visitation

Mary set out at that time and went as quickly as she could into the hill country to a town in Judah. She went into Zechariah’s house and greeted Elizabeth. Now it happened that as soon as Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the child leapt in her womb and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. She gave a loud cry and said, ‘Of all women you are the most blessed, and blessed is the fruit of your womb. Why should I be honoured with a visit from the mother of my Lord? Look, the moment your greeting reached my ears, the child in my womb leapt for joy. Yes, blessed is she who believed that the promise made her by the Lord would be fulfilled.’


Luke 1: 36

And I tell you this too: your cousin Elizabeth also, in her old age, has conceived a son, and she whom people called barren is now in her sixth month,


THE BARREN ELIZABETH - GAVE BIRTH TO JOHN

THE LAND IS BARREN, IT WILL GIVE WAY TO FRUITFULNESS.


Genesis 11: 30

Sarai was barren, having no child.


Genesis 21: 1-3

The birth of Isaac

Yahweh treated Sarah as he had said, and did what he had promised her. Sarah conceived and bore Abraham a son in his old age, at the time God had promised. Abraham named the son born to him Isaac, the son to whom Sarah had given birth.


1 Samuel 1: 5

to Hannah, however, he would give only one portion: for, although he loved Hannah more, Yahweh had made her barren.


1 Samuel 1: 19-20

Birth and consecration of Samuel

They got up early in the morning and, after worshipping Yahweh, set out and went home to Ramah. Elkanah lay with his wife Hannah, and Yahweh remembered her. Hannah conceived and, in due course, gave birth to a son, whom she named Samuel, ‘since’, she said, ‘I asked Yahweh for him.’


Psalm 113: 9

He lets the barren woman be seated at home,
the happy mother of sons.


Isaiah 54: 1

Jerusalem restored to Yahweh's favour

     Shout for joy, barren one
         who has borne no children!
     Break into cries and shouts of joy,
         you who were never in labour!
     For the children of the forsaken one
         are more in number
     than the children of the wedded wife,
         says Yahweh.


Luke 23: 29

For look, the days are surely coming when people will say, “Blessed are those who are barren, the wombs that have never borne children, the breasts that have never suckled!”


2 Peter 2: 4-10

Lessons of the past

When angels sinned, God did not spare them: he sent them down into the underworld and consigned them to the dark abyss to be held there until the Judgement. He did not spare the world in ancient times: he saved only Noah, the preacher of uprightness, along with seven others, when he sent the Flood over a world of sinners. He condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah by reducing them to ashes as a warning to future sinners; but rescued Lot, an upright man who had been sickened by the debauched way in which these vile people behaved— for that upright man, living among them, was outraged in his upright soul by the crimes that he saw and heard every day. All this shows that the Lord is well able to rescue the good from their trials, and hold the wicked for their punishment until the Day of Judgement, especially those who follow the desires of their corrupt human nature and have no respect for the Lord’s authority.


Psalm 107: 33-37

He has turned rivers into desert,
bubbling springs into arid ground,
fertile country into salt–flats,
because the people living there were evil.

But he has turned desert into stretches of water,
arid ground into bubbling springs,
and has given the hungry a home,
where they have built themselves a city.

There they sow fields and plant vines,
and reap a harvest of their produce.


Messenger: I saw what I believed to be a vision of John the Baptist April 15, 1993.

Accounted here is what I wrote December 3, 1998.


Excerpt from December 3, 1998 daily message

On April 14-15, 1993, I am not sure, my family and I were alone in the apparition house at Conyers. It was my first visit there. Two women came and left while we were in there, but we were alone most of the time, except for a man dressed in a burlap sack-type material, with sandals and with eyes that looked upward and a heavenly face. I looked into his face, but he was as if in another world, having an angelic color (not human) but he had a regular body, but very slight. He stood there and then he disappeared, or so we thought. His garb was the same color as the floor. The children and I were taking pictures and then we almost tripped over him. He appeared on the carpet in some circular position, covered by his garb as in a ball. I thought it was John the Baptist. My life was touched by that visit to Conyers, our first visit. The next month we would have a profound experience. This is accounted in an earlier message. On May 13, 1993, I dictated the first Blue Book message to my child as we drove away with the sun spinning.

(End of Excerpt from December 3, 1998 daily message)


Messenger: John the Baptist leapt in the womb of his mother.

Of John the Baptist it is said:


Luke 3: 4-9

as it is written in the book of the sayings of Isaiah the prophet

    A voice of one that cries in the desert:
    Prepare a way for the Lord,
    make his paths straight!
    Let every valley be filled in,
    every mountain and hill be levelled,
    winding ways be straightened
    and rough roads made smooth,
    and all humanity
        will see the salvation of God
.

    He said, therefore, to the crowds who came to be baptised by him, ‘Brood of vipers, who warned you to flee from the coming retribution? Produce fruit in keeping with repentance, and do not start telling yourselves, “We have Abraham as our father,” because, I tell you, God can raise children for Abraham from these stones. Yes, even now the axe is being laid to the root of the trees, so that any tree failing to produce good fruit will be cut down and thrown on the fire.’


Messenger: When Jesus was baptised by John, it says in Luke 3: 22:


Luke 3: 22

and the Holy Spirit descended on him in a physical form, like a dove. And a voice came from heaven, ‘You are my Son; today have I fathered you.’


Messenger: We too become adopted sons and daughters of God in Baptism.

The last book of the Old Testament is Malachi, the last chapter says:


Malachi 3: 1

‘Look, I shall send my messenger to clear a way before me. And suddenly the Lord whom you seek will come to his Temple; yes, the angel of the covenant, for whom you long, is on his way, says Yahweh Sabaoth.


Messenger: It is good to read the whole account of Malachi Chapter 3.

Malachi ends with the quote:


Malachi 3: 23-24

    ‘Look, I shall send you the prophet Elijah before the great and awesome Day of Yahweh comes. He will reconcile parents to their children and children to their parents, to forestall my putting the country under the curse of destruction.’


Messenger: Chapter 11 Revelation says:


Revelation 11: 3-4

But I shall send my two witnesses to prophesy for twelve hundred and sixty days, wearing sackcloth. These are the two olive trees and the two lamps in attendance on the Lord of the world.


Messenger: Revelation 22 ends:


Revelation 22: 20

    The one who attests these things says: I am indeed coming soon.
    Amen; come, Lord Jesus.


Messenger: I ask you to include the Song from Jesus.

Messenger: John the Baptist was sent as a messenger for God. He leapt in the womb of the once barren Elizabeth.

On April 15, 1993, I saw what I believe was a vision of John the Baptist in the apparition house at Conyers.

On May 13, 1993, I received the first message for Blue Book I as I left Conyers.

Today I have been given so many messages for the earth.


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)


MY VALENTINE FOR JESUS AND MARY

You Jesus and Mary on this day
