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.

July 2, 2004 message continues

Messenger:       Pray the prayers given to you
                              Novena of the Holy Spirit. (click on)

                           I come as a messenger of God to the people of this earth.
                          In 1992 I asked God if you would write a book would you
                                use my hand. This was October 5, 1992. I began receiving more
                                and more writings and a summoning from Jesus to write
                                daily. This I did and now as I look back over it all so very
                                much may look to be published, so much remains unpublished
                                deep secrets into the hidden mysteries.

                          The guidance of my very holy spiritual director for 6 1/2 years was
                                very constant
                                It was his message that Jesus gave that began the newsletter, Shepherds
                                of Christ, but Our Lord's wish in January 1994 that the following
                                messages go to all the Bishops of the United States December 27, 1993
                                "The Bridegroom Awaits" Blue Book I and January 17, 1994 "I want My
                                Priests to Come Back" Blue Book II before Fr. Carter got the message 
                                to send the newsletter May 31, 1994. I did not even know Fr. Carter when 
                                I got the message in January 1994 nor had I even said the word priest in 
                                a message until January 17, 1994.

                            My intention is not to focus on myself at all, but how God
                                worked in this body of revelations.

                            On December 17, 1991 (Mary appeared in Clearwater on the building 5 years
                                                                later on that date December 17, 1996)
                                I saw the Heart of Jesus enflamed like a pot bellied stove. The
                                white center the pure white
pouring off so much I felt I
                                experienced heat and the outside layer of the heart was
                                a red rim. I received the following short words.

    "Open your heart to the fire of God's love. He is ablaze in your heart. He wants to dwell in you and love you and others through you. Love God, yourself and one another and experience the fire set aglow in your heart and experience the warmth of His love."


July 2, 2004 message continues

Messenger:       On December 17, 1995 I wrote as recorded in the Mass Book, but
                                this was accounting the vision of December 15, 95 John our president's
                                That vision was a red room the Heart of Christ the rapture
                                of a heavenly embrace, knowing the presence of God the Father,
                                God the Son, God the Holy Spirit and Mary, but it was the
                                intensity of a rapture, by December 17 and 18 I had tried to
                                separate it and write about it, but its unity and
                                experience of existing in God is beyond measure and that
                                is what I almost feel I do to write about it.

                            To be absorbed by God as I was on that Day, to be as it were
                                to a place far beyond, it felt as if my body could not
                                even take the experience
the rapture and tears of joy
                                the intensity of God wrapping my soul is beyond
                                expression, beyond any pen or paper and the grip of
                                it all when wrapped in His experiences feels to me as
                                I have grabbed a hot wire in a place beyond
                                hardly being able to breathe and experience it in my
                                body. I know it well, I know the moments of the
                                embrace December 15, 1995 as if it never leaves me, nor
                                the intensity of it.

                            It is my measuring stick so to speak of my desire for
                                completeness in Him. The longing of my soul to be
                                possessed by God, I know rapture and I know heaven
                                to a small degree from these experiences. I cannot
                                express it, as I write now I have the aching, longing
                                in my heart as one who has just lost a loved one
                                and feels they will never be able to deal with their
                                heart, but it is not even that at all, because I know
                                of the glory of having Him some day and my soul
                                knows it is the reaching of my soul to possess
                                this with every breath I breathe, with every moment of
                                my existence and I write to you as He beckons me to to tell
                                of the moments of a heavenly embrace.

                                Not in books, in the recesses of my heart, existing in
                            Him, I know God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, knowing God and
                            knowing the oneness of God and the oneness with Mary.
                            Knowledge far beyond anything I can write on a paper

                                Knowing this and seeing Mary appear day after day after
                            day for 14 months
the last nine months crying out to
                            reach the children, especially in schools, there are souls going into hell like
                            rain she said and then after the long daily visits every day for
                            14 months July 5, 1994
September 5, 1995 and she continued
                            appearing to me on the 5ths at Holy Cross-Immaculata

                            I knew the emotion she gave to me to speak the words of
                            this message August 27, 1996 (about 4 months before she
                            appeared in Clearwater).


Mary'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.

July 2, 2004 message continues

Messenger:              As I sat that Tuesday night on the hill before the river
                            at Tom's Farm and she spoke in me and it was taped that is
                            how the message reached hard copy
I felt the Mother
                            speak her words, I was crying in my heart and soul, my
                            throat felt the words come forth
another was speaking
                            through me and I was the shell she used to deliver the
                            message she wanted with her soon to be vision in
                                Visions, raptures, daily writings 1991-2004
                            long time to be taught by God and the Mother.

                                The rosaries delivered the last years of the second millennium
                            end of 1996-1999 (starting with Mary's visits on Sundays 97, 98, 99
                            ending the last Sunday in 1999) were on Sundays as we went through
                            the scriptures, Cycle A, B, C and under the guidance of Fr. Carter I attended
                            Sunday Mass
that he celebrated each Sunday — did the rosary most of the
                            afternoon as Jesus taught the Shepherds of Christ core group and then met 
                            with Fr. Carter that night again.

                                The 13ths then began to be the teachings Our Lord used to tell us
                            of the mission of Shepherds of Christ. The call to apostles October 13, 1996 
                            about 450 people there on Tom's Farm as Fr. Carter led the rosary and
                            here is the click of the hard copy as it came from my mouth that day
                            (the actual tape was circulated after completely discerned by
                            Fr. Carter)
                            Then there was 3 13th's Fr. Carter led the rosary, discerned the tapes
                            and were circulated monthly November 13, 1996
, December 13, 1996.
                            On the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe December 12, 1996 I was instructed
                            to make Mary's Message tape and on December 17, 1996 Mary appeared
                            on the building in Clearwater
the same day the Red Rosary
                            Book with rainbow left the printers. Here is what Fr. Carter
                            said about it all February 13, 1997. (As we gathered at the Holy Spirit 
                            Center, the old Seminary there were about 600 people present that day.)

Messenger:        I received the following important message in December 96 and January 96
                                around Mary's visit. Fr. Carter told us in October 13, 1996 we had to
                                compile all this in a book
what went on and it turned out
                                to be the Apostles Manual
about 3 months before December 17, 1996
                                about 3 months after December 17, 1996. (when Mary appeared in 
                                Clearwater on the building) (January 13, 1997, February 13, 1997
                                and March 13, 1997.

                            Fr. Carter was there January 13, 1997.
                                He talked about the messages of the Father January 11, 1997,
                                January 18, 1997, I had received the All Night Message 
                                December 29, 1996 (right after Mary appeared in Clearwater)
                                and December 19, 1996 and December 22, 1996 both important messages

                                all in the Apostles Manual.

                                The 13ths continued and then May 13, 1997 a lot about
                            the Newsletter and purpose

Messenger:          and now instead of distributing the messages, prayer manuals,
                            rosary meditations and rosaries from the parking lot in Clearwater
                            we took possession of the building in Clearwater
leasing it and
                            I began the daily messages on the internet July 8, 1998. Fr. Carter
                            discerned each one daily.

                                When I went to Florida on the 5ths at night I couldn't see
                            the image, on December 17, 1999 Mary began appearing in gold at
                            night. Then we could not film her until July 5, 2000.

                                Fr. Carter said his last Mass in Clearwater and he then went
                            to the hotel
he was sick in the hotel he had to sit at Mass
                            during it, but his Mass was so beautiful and is on the web-TV.

                                That night John the President took this picture and the

Mary speaks:      My little children I cry to you. The Newsletter then
until the end of 2000 during Fr. Carter's life -- during 
                                his life 33 Newsletters were written and circulated around the world. The 
                                Newsletter for many years went to 75,000 priests in English and Spanish.
                                The Newsletter Fr. Carter wrote are seeds from Jesus placed in
                                many hearts leading the priests into a deeper life of
                                consecration to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

                            My people I told you at Fatima until a sufficient number
                                of souls have consecrated their hearts to Jesus and Mary you
                                will not have peace in the world.

                            My people the priests must lead the people into this
                                deeper life of consecration.

                            I appeared all through the Century telling you to pray the
                                rosary and consecrate your hearts.

                            The Shepherds of Christ Movement is my Son's Movement given by Him
                                at the end of Second Millennium to lead the souls into this deeper
                                life of consecration to my heart and the Heart of my Son Jesus.

                            I am Mary Immaculate.
                            I am Mary Conceived without sin.
                            I am your Holy, Heavenly, Mother.

                            I have given to you the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius
                                to lead you into greater holiness and a deeper life
                                of consecration to my heart and the Heart of my Son Jesus.

                            It is vital that priests teach the people about Spiritual Discernment,
                                St. Ignatius has set forth the Discernment of Spirits.
                            The evil one is real and he wants to take souls to hell.

                            My people my Son is the head of the Church, He gives you
                                Himself in the Eucharist.

                            My people you have been given the 7 sacraments.
                            I am Mary your Mother Spiritual Mother of the Church.
                            You are in a state of becoming. 
                           The Church is in a state of becoming.

                            My Newsletter for my Priests, my Son's Newsletter will
                                lead the priests into a deeper life of consecration
                                to Our Two Hearts.

                            Within the Heart of Jesus they will taste the treasures
                                of His love.

                            Within His Heart they will be led to closer union with
                                the Father in the Holy Spirit.

                            Oh my children God loves you so much
                                The Father sent His only begotten Son that you
                                would be saved.

Excerpt from The Spirituality of Fatima

    ...Tell everybody that God gives graces through the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Tell them to ask grace from her, and that the Heart of Jesus wishes to be venerated together with the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Ask them to plead for peace from the Immaculate Heart of Mary, for the Lord has confided the peace of the world to her. (19)

        Excerpt from the Red Rosary Book

July 5, 1994 6:30 p.m. 

I was told to go to Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center to pray the rosary with my children. There were people in the front of the church, so we decided to pray the rosary in the back before the Sorrowful Mother statue. I had the following vision at the end of the rosary.

The statue of the Sorrowful Mother was lit up as if she had fire around her. The light was very bright. Her whole gown was all-white, but the statue's gown is blue and pink. She was all aglow. It looked like the glow that comes off of a fire. Her face kept changing but remained totally sorrowful-the sorrow of an older woman. She was in such pain and sorrow! (It was hard to explain how she looked-extremely pained!) Her face looked as though she was in such pain that she could hardly bear it.

The vision remained like this for about ten minutes, having begun during the last Hail Mary of the Sorrowful Mysteries of the rosary. She was holding something-it was all bright white-the brightest light ever!

end of excerpt from July 5, 1994


August 10, 1994 After Mass, Fr. Smith’s Chapel

And Their Eyes Peered Into One Another's Eyes

Messenger: See Mary as she beholds the baby in her arms. She looks at Him so tenderly. His sweet baby eyes look up at the eyes of His loving Mother. Such tenderness between Mother and Son, such oneness to hold her infant Son so lovingly in her arms. Oh, do we ever know the tenderness between a baby and his loving mother?

A life of close union between this Mother and this Son, a life of her looking into His loving eyes. Such silent, but strong and loving communication! Such a strong bond-Their eyes meeting-from one soul to the other soul.

Song: See the Eyes That Look at Mary (Verse l)…

Deep, deep communication, a deep bond, indescribable in words, a touching of the souls! And the peering look between Son and Mother on the road to the crucifixion. What a peering look, what communication between this Son and Mother. Seeing the other suffer was as agonizing as each's very own suffering-suffering and oneness between a Son and His Mother. A peering look, deep into the very souls. Such an intimacy between Them!

How can one describe in words this oneness, this union between the Son and His Mother? The perfect love between Him and her. Total giving of each person in such love to the other. To see the suffering of the other was as agonizing as-if not more than-each's own suffering.

How His passion and crucifixion were intensified by the sufferings of His dear Mother! How her sufferings were such a sharing in our redemption, the swords that pierced her Heart! The eyes of Mary that invisibly bled as she watched such brutality to the beloved Baby she once carried in her womb and held in her arms!

Song: Little Baby Hands and Feet…

Mary held the Child Jesus when He was a baby; she watched Him and cared for Him as a little boy; she was so attentive to the needs of her little Son. Will we ever know this connectedness between Their loving Hearts? Do we know this oneness? The peering eyes on the way to Calvary tell the story. They tell the story of this oneness. They tell the story of her watching this horrid event of her beautiful baby Son and His horrible passion and death.

Her eyes! Oh, Mary, help me to see the love of Jesus through your eyes! You watched Him as a baby, you watched Him as a child. You watched Him grow into the beautiful Man He became and you, Mary, watched Him all through this bitter passion and death. Your eyes saw the love that He gave for us. Now you come, Mary. You appear to tell us to go to this Son. You knew more than anyone His love to suffer so for us. You come and appear with blood in your eyes and tears running down your cheeks. You show me your sorrowful face, your young face, your old face, your joyful face. This was the face Jesus peered at as He walked His walk to Calvary. This was the face that appears now to tell us the story of His love this very day. I see your parade of faces, Mary, old and young, sorrowful and joyful. I see these faces that Jesus beheld. Your face tells the story of His love for us.

Mary speaks: This is my beloved Son. This is my Baby. This is the Child I bore in my womb. He came to give you love. He came to be God-made-Man among you this very day. He is, my children, no less present in the Eucharist than He was at Calvary and you go after such incidental things. My Son loves you. I show you my face so you can tell the world of our love. Live our lives in the rosary. Let our lives live in your day. The way to eternal happiness is to be likened to my beautiful Son.

I watched my Son. I lead you to the ardent love of my Son, Jesus. His Heart burns for love of you. Come to Him this day. Give Him your love. Spend time with Him. He is alive and in your midst in the Eucharist.

Messenger:. Note: I smelled roses very strongly throughout this message.

Song: See the Eyes That Look at Mary (Verse 2)…

This is the Son of the Father, the Son of God, born of Mary through the Holy Spirit, and He lives this day in your hearts. Share His love for you. Go to Him through Mary's Heart. She who is so closely united to Jesus! Their Hearts are so close to one another! As their eyes were joined in such oneness, Their Hearts are joined in such intimacy. Go to Jesus' Heart through His beloved Mother, through her who bore Him in her womb, her who watched Him give Himself for love of you.

  Listen to this, you who crush the needy 
and reduce the oppressed to nothing, 
you who say, 
    ‘When will New Moon be over 
so that we can sell our corn, 
and Sabbath, so that we can market 
    our wheat? 
Then, we can make 
    the bushel–measure smaller 
and the shekel–weight bigger, 
by fraudulently tampering 
    with the scales. 
We can buy up the weak for silver 
and the poor for a pair of sandals, 
and even get a price 
    for the sweepings of the wheat.’

‘On that Day–
    declares the Lord Yahweh–
I shall make the sun go down at noon 
and darken the earth in broad daylight. 
I shall turn your festivals into mourning 
and all your singing into lamentation; 
I shall make you all wear sacking 
    round your waists 
and have all your heads shaved. 
I shall make it like the mourning 
    for an only child, 
and it will end like the bitterest of days.

‘The days are coming–
    declares the Lord Yahweh–
when I shall send a famine on the country, 
not hunger for food, not thirst for water, 
but famine for hearing Yahweh’s word. 
People will stagger from sea to sea, 
will wander from the north to the east, 
searching for Yahweh’s word, 
but will not find it.

Messenger:         Are we starved for the Word of God?

                            Do we have a famine in our hearts 
                                in that we are not hungering after the Word?

                            Do we know what we are missing by not longing 
                                for the Word to come alive in our hearts?


From the Holy Spirit Novena

Prayer for the Word Alive in Our Hearts

We know, dear Holy Spirit, the Word in His human nature was brought forth within the womb of the woman. We pray that His word will be brought forth in our hearts as He lives and dwells in us. We want the incarnation to go on in our lives. Dear Holy Spirit, work in us.
