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.


Jesus speaks: I ask that the inside cover of A Gift, A Warning, & A Solution appear here.

Our Lady of Light

Mary appeared almost everyday from July 5, 1994 until September 5, 1995 at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center in the Sorrowful Mother Statue.  She said she appeared as Our Lady of Light. She was surrounded by a celestial mist.

On Mother's Day 1995, she told me to buy a portable camera and take her picture when she appeared. This picture can be found on the front of this card.

On Marcy 24, 1997, Jesus asked me that cards be printed with the picture of Mary taken on Mother's Day on the card. She looked alive during the apparition. Compare this picture to the picture of the statue when she was not appearing. Jesus says He has given great signs of the authenticity of the messages.

On March 20 1997, I wrote, "Mary appeared as Our Lady of Fatima for one hour and fifteen minutes. Mary appeared in the Sorrowful Mother statue at Our Lady of the Holy Sprit Center.

As I began the rosary, I began to see Mary covered with a mist. Then I saw light around her. She got bigger than the statue. Her face softened to that of the most beautiful woman-the same as the picture I took on Mother's Day 1995 when she told me to buy film and take her picture."

On March 22, 1997, I wrote, "She was Our Lady of Light and she kept going into Our Lady of Fatima-live in the statue."

She has given us and her son has given us rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. (The book, Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, is available.) These rosaries are still received on the 13th of the month with messages from Jesus and possibly Mary. Come to our Morrow center. Many rosaries are live on tape. There is so much more! Call us! Mary wants us to spread the consecrations and rosaries to school children. She wants the Children's Rosary Book published. Jesus and the Father want us to begin prayer chapters praying for the priests, the renewal of the Church and the world, and the priestly newsletter. Contact Shepherds of Christ Ministries: P.O.

Jesus speaks: I ask that the pillar of light picture appear here.


Father Carter appeared as a pillar of light.

Jesus speaks: On July 2, 1996, I asked that this picture be taken of Father Carter.

On July 4, 1996, I gave the following message.


July 4, 1996

This message was received before a live statue of the Sorrowful Mother after Communion.

Message from Jesus: "Peace will abound when nations, churches, families and individuals are consecrated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary."

"Fr. Carter is a pillar of light to the dark world. This is the explanation of the photo. It is through him, I will turn darkness to light. Circulate this message with the picture. Encourage all to consecrate their hearts to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Sacred Heart of Jesus, to join the Shepherds of Christ Chapters, and the Apostles of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus Movement to pray for your Church and your world. This is My Movement for renewal of the Church and the world, based in consecration, joining your every act to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, praying the rosary, and making reparation to Our Hearts, especially on First Fridays and First Saturdays. It is through your prayers and sacrifices many souls will be helped to be saved. Grace will flow from those whose hearts are consecrated to Our Hearts and the fire of My Love will light up this darkened world."

As you look at the picture, you see Fr. Carter's arm and hand on your left. This picture of Fr. Carter was taken July 2, 1996 at the Tuesday Shepherds of Christ Meeting at Tom Arlinghaus' Farm.


Revelation 3:11-12

I am coming soon: hold firmly to what you already have, and let no one take your victor's crown away from you. Anyone who proves victorious I will make into a pillar in the sanctuary of my God, and it will stay there for ever; I will inscribe on it the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem which is coming down from my God in heaven, and my own new name as well.


Jesus speaks: I wish the accounts from the front of the Rosaries From Jesus and Mary Book appear here concerning the vision of July 5, 1994.


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!


Jesus speaks: I wish a picture of Mary with the sword in her Heart appear here.



Jesus speaks: I wish the picture of the tabernacle and altar to appear here of March 26, 1996 vision.



Jesus speaks: I wish the message of March 26, 1996, and description of vision appear here.


March 26, 1996

Messenger: I came to All Saints Church before a beautiful Monstrance of gold that contained Our beloved Savior. He was adorned in light, the altar beneath shone with the brightest light and the cross behind was entirely silhouetted with the same celestial light. I was overwhelmed with the presence of God and cried deeply from the awe of it all.

To be so aware of the Almighty God truly present in all His splendor and glory--to know the presence of God, to see the glistening of the gold and the light and reflection of the cross behind Him--my beauteous love--words do not exist to describe the rapture of a heavenly embrace! I cry because of the immense awe within my being to know Him. God truly present in all His majesty and glory and oh, God, I behold the presence of a heavenly court. You opened wide the heavens and lifted up the veil and I knew You in all your splendor and glory. I behold God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

"I am the Way, the Truth and the Life." He is the Almighty God. He shows us the celestial lights with which He will light this earth. Many must surrender their hearts to His Heart and Mary's heart. It is in surrendering, the Spirit will move in the hearts of men and the light of God will shine on the darkened earth. Not with a light that you comprehend, but a light that is divinely granted--a light beyond all lights, a vision beyond all visions. It takes the surrender of minds and hearts to God. The Spirit cannot move in us when we are in control. Surrender and give Him our heart and He will make us fishers of men.

We are His apostles in the Shepherds of Christ Movement. He is sending us out into the world to light the hearts with His burning love. We are chosen by Him and He is giving us abundant graces to grow in our union with Him. He will light this world with His burning love. Our hearts must be open. We must surrender and let go and reach beyond the senses, reach with our hearts. Pray for faith, pray for the vision of God.

Note: I cried all through this writing, having the presence of God and being in great ecstasy to behold Him. May God touch your heart and may His Spirit move within you. May you be filled with the grace of God to surrender and let Him accomplish a great work within you.

And I was filled on high with His miraculous light and He reached down and spoke within me. I was filled as never before and knew the presence of God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Note: As I finished, the bells at All Saints Church rang at 9:00 A.M. As I began to experience the immense splendor, the bells of 8:00 rang. I was taken to heaven and given the greatest vision. Words do not express anything that I saw or experienced or know from this ecstasy. This was the greatest and the first of three visions, which defined clearly to me our role in the Shepherds of Christ Movement. Jesus defines clearly the role of Fr. Carter in this great mission given to him by the Father.


Jesus speaks: July 5, 1999, is an important date to heaven. I will be with you in a special way.

I love you,
Jesus.


Question for married couples and others in intimate relationships:

Q: How can we join in greater unity as a family through praying together daily? When can we set aside a special time to pray the Shepherds of Christ prayers and the rosary as a couple, as a family?

A Note from Jesus: I love you, My precious families, I am Jesus, please pray together. This is My question for you today.
