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: There are so many teachers (I do not mean only teachers in schools. A teacher, can be anyone that teaches another something, by word, example, illustration, television, movies, newspaper, computer, pictures etc.)

My children are being taught by your world and if you are a good Christian mother or father you know how you desire your children are taught the truth.

My children are always my children, and I love them with the most perfect motherly love. They are being taught so many untruths by  your world.

I tell you this, that there will be peace in your schools and your lives if you lead children back to school to pray the rosary and consecrate their hearts.

Praying one decade of the rosary a day in Catholic schools will help create an atmosphere of peace. Begin each Monday with a set of Mysteries, pray the Joyful the first full week of school. You can use the pictures provided on the internet in the Parents and Children's book or the pictures in the coloring books and pass them out in schools. 

I want you to teach the children to give their hearts to me and my Son Jesus.

Here are two consecration cards that can be used in Catholic grade schools.

The children's consecrations are available on PDF files.

(The red consecration cards with hands for young children coming soon!)

Mary speaks: These cards can be printed on bright red card stock for your children.

If this is impossible, print them on white paper on a copy machine.

When the children give their hearts to my Heart and the Heart of my Son Jesus, they are one.

They operate more fully in one mind and one heart, instead of 50 wills in the class room. They are more attuned to the will of God which is one way, the right way.

Another card can be printed on business cards. Nothing may be altered on these cards. My Son Jesus and I have directed how to print them.


Mary speaks:  This is an alternative card to the little red card.

This can be on a white business card with red ink.

I ask again, please print these cards exactly as we so designate.

Mary speaks:  I requested at Fatima that all consecrate their hearts to Our Hearts. Unless you do this, you will not have the peace you desire.

The more you spread this consecration, the more they will have peace, the more men will do God's will.

There is another older children's consecration card, but older children may do better with the plain white business card that says "I give my heart to Jesus and Mary with you in love."

Both can be made available, some schools will do better with one or the other.

(The consecration cards for older children - back and front - coming soon!)

Mary speaks:  The more institutions use these cards, the more you will have peace, the more you will be in one mind and one heart. In churches, nursing homes etc. wherever a body of people are gathered and want harmony, they should consecrate their hearts together to Our Hearts for peace.

Until a sufficient number of people have given their hearts to Jesus and Mary, you will not have peace in the world.

There will be a great era of peace in which men will live in the Father's will. Men must give their hearts to me and to my Son Jesus as I told you at Fatima, 1917.

You must do all you can to increase this devotion to Our Hearts.

Messenger:  Mary further stated that students in schools using this program should pray the entire rosary, meditating on the Mysteries two times, or at least once, every month, praying for the peace of the world and praying for our priests and the Catholic Church. This can be done on special feasts of Mary and others. The rosary could be said on the 13th in honor of her apparitions at Fatima. Special dates Mary and Jesus have given to us are the 5, 13, 17 of the month.

Mary speaks: I love all my children so much, even when they do not know me or have forgotten me.


Please reach the school children with the rosary.

Rosaries are available for the schools.

Be a rosary-maker and teach the school children to make rosaries and to pray.

Say to the children. "I give my heart to Jesus and Mary with you in love"

Teach children to say this to one another as a greeting.

I love you, I am Mary



Revelations: 21: 9-14

The Messianic Jerusalem

     One of the seven angels that had the seven bowls full of the seven final plagues came to speak to me and said, 'Come here and I will show  you the bride that the Lamb has married.'  In the spirit, he carried me to the top of a very high mountain, and showed me Jerusalem, the holy city, coming down out of heaven from God.  It had all the glory of God and glittered like some precious jewel of crystal-clear diamond.  Its wall was of a great height and had twelve gates; at each of the twelve gates there was an angel, and over the gates were written the names of the twelve tribes of Israel;  on the east there were three gates, on the north three gates, on the south three gates, and on the west three gates.  The city walls stood on twelve foundation stones, each one of which bore the name of one of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.

 Psalm 145:  10-11, 12-13, 17-18

All your creatures shall thank you, Yahweh,
and your faithful shall bless you.
They shall speak of the glory of your kingship
and tell of your might,

making known your mighty deeds to the children of Adam,
the glory and majesty of your kingship.
Your kingship is a kingship for ever,
your reign lasts from age to age.

Upright in all that he does,
Yahweh acts only in faithful love.
He is close to all who call upon him,
all who call on him from the heart.

John 1: 45-51

The first disciples

     Philip found Nathanael and said to him, 'We found him of whom Moses in the Law and the prophets wrote, Jesus son of Joseph, from Nazareth.'  Nathanael said to him, 'From Nazareth? Can anything good come from that place?' Philip replied, 'Come and see.'  When Jesus saw Nathanael coming he said of him, 'There, truly,     is an Israelite in whom there is no deception.'  Nathanael asked, 'How do you know me?' Jesus replied, 'Before Philip came to call you, I saw you under the fig tree.'  Nathanael answered, 'Rabbi, you are the Son of God, you are the king of Israel.'  Jesus replied, You believe that just because I said: I saw you under the fig tree. You are going to see greater things than that.'  And then he added, 'In all truth I tell you, you will see heaven open and the angels of God ascending and descending over the Son of man.'

August 24, 2000 - Second Message

Messenger:  Mary speaks before the Sorrowful Mother statue.  I was called there and received this message.

(Full size picture of Our Lady of Sorrows - including her feet - coming soon!)

Mary speaks:  I give you a great gift in my rosary factory in Florida.

It is clear that you must work to supply schools with rosaries.

Rosary makers are needed.

You must work together in love, for you are doing this work to promote peace.

Satan may taunt you and make it very difficult to communicate.

You must work to do this job for me, fighting, literally fighting temptations to become angry. Work in peace and love for me.

Every Shepherd of Christ sub-center is rooted in prayer.

This prayer is absolutely necessary to do this work because Satan is so strong and wants to divide you. He does not want you supplying rosaries to the world and to children in schools.

The primary mission of the Shepherds of Christ is to promote holiness and to teach the world how to pray more effectively as I and My Son lead you into deeper union with God.

You will be attacked by Satan as you do this work. Satan can attack at Mass, during Communion.. You must fight off his attacks to stop you in this mission and work in love, for me, your Mother. Work for peace and love.

 The Shepherds of Christ Movement and the prayers prayed are to lead the people into deeper union in Our Hearts. They help you fight these attacks of Satan to stop you.

All work activities under Shepherds of Christ name must be rooted in a strong prayer life centered in consecration to Our Hearts. Wherever one works under Shepherds of Christ name, they should pray the prayers my Son Jesus has given and pray with one another, consecrating their hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary .

If you begin a rosary making club, it should come out of a strong union between the members who get together and pray the prayers uniting their hearts in Ours.

The ideal is to have a group praying together in this mission for the priests, the Church and the world, and working together, stopping hourly to say at least a short prayer, praying for the mission in the Shepherds of Christ and praying for yourselves, your families and your part in the mission, asking for grace and all you need to accomplish it. Praying the prayers together even weekly helps to unite all as a strong body in a family.

It can be a short prayer as:

Father, in the name of Your Son Jesus, in the Holy Spirit, through the powerful intercession of the Virgin Mary with all the angels and saints and the souls in Purgatory, in union with the Mass, we pray for     (list intentions)   .

Communities of prayer create a strong bond for working together.

More and more people must unite and pray feeling that bond, united as a body in the mission.

The devil can work more strongly in the individual if they do not feel themselves united to others.

This does not mean you must always physically work together. It means you really see yourself as part of a family united together working to serve me for the same end.

Jesus speaks:  People working all over the world in the Father's will can unite, and they will not step on each others toes. All have the same goal, all serve the same God.

I have given you My Movement, Shepherds of Christ.

I want you to be united as a body in prayer and feel that union with one another as you work.

I give my directions in the messages. It is important you work together, wherever you are, under My lead. 

To some I am giving the direction to begin prayer chapters (this can be a few people gathered in prayer or many people). The intention is not that you will create a little empire of your own, but that you will join as a little body united to the whole body praying for the same goal and working for the same goal, speaking in one voice, operating in one mind.

No matter where you are, if you are a part of the Shepherds of Christ Movement, you should have the same voice and give the same message consistent with all teaching in the Catholic Church that must be obeyed under the direction of the Pope.

I come to renew My Church and My world, which means I come to address some issues for the sake of renewal. 

If everything continued the way it was going, and everyone did exactly as they are doing now, then those things that are imperfect practices would remain imperfect.

My Movement is centered in little cities of love. People praying the prayers go to their local Catholic churches and pray the prayers for their Church and community, consecrating their lives to the Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart. They encourage others to pray the prayers with them if possible.

All working communities should strive to have their activity rooted in the prayers I give. Pray together and say whenever you join for work, whenever you greet one another, a short consecration "I give my heart to Jesus and Mary with you in love."

I came to renew My Church and My World so that there will be a great era of peace and that men will make the Sacred Heart the Center of their lives and that the Heart of My Mother will triumph in all hearts.

I want little families everywhere - Shepherds of Christ - united by their prayer chapter, sharing their love for the Sacred Heart and their desire to make Him the Center of their lives.

Whenever there is a working community of individuals working together, you will have great success if you stay united in prayer with each other.

I give you My prayers and the 13th promise in the message I gave to your founder.

Study the words and say it often, it is The Promise I give to you.

The 13th Promise

Jesus speaks: "I am calling many to become members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. To all of them I will give great blessings. I will use them as instruments to help bring about the triumph of the Immaculate Heart and the reign of My Sacred Heart. I will give great graces to the members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. I will call them to be deeply united to My Heart and to Mary's Heart as I lead them ever closer to My Father in the Holy Spirit."

Jesus speaks:  I write to you of love. All men want to be loved. My servants and handmaids have a special calling from Me to be My special spouse. They know so much how I love them.

Married persons, mother, father in a family, must also have a deep spousal union with Me. They also share in a special way their love with each other.

More and more I will call special spouses to My Movement as servants and handmaids. The servants and handmaids majorly contribute in running the Movement because their lives are given completely to Me. Servants and handmaids live in love in a community.

There are some sub-servants and sub-handmaids that live their lives in the world. They take a promise in their hearts to live a life of celibacy, which may change, but they so live now and serve the Movement in a special way.

The apostles serve in a special way. Many are married and have children. Some live with their families. Some live in apostle houses and serve as do those in Florida. They are still free to marry if they so choose. Apostles contribute majorly in the Movement, also. Both  servants, handmaids, and apostles contribute to running the Movement.

Whatever way you have been called to serve, it is in living in great love according to your calling that will make a big difference to My mission.

Some people, when they are alone, feel abandoned or lonely. The Movement does not exist to fill your starved soul, for you will always have a desire in your heart for deeper union with Me, and no one will satisfy it here below.

Members in the Shepherds of Christ must come from a deep knowledge and realization of how deeply I love them, and when they are physically alone, they know I am still with them in a very special way. 

The ache in your heart for love will not be satisfied as you so desire here below.

You must see the great job you are doing in helping Me reach souls, and not listen to the promptings of Satan that tries to get you focused on yourselves and your desire for wrongful recognition from those here below.



When the ache comes in your heart, that of emptiness, ask yourself if you need to build up a community of Shepherds of Christ people in a prayer group.

If I am calling you to serve Me and you are doing all that you are supposed to, then you must realize that many times I allow you to suffer. You may suffer loneliness. Identify with Me in the garden. My Heart was in such pain.

I must be the One you turn to in need.

If you are a Shepherd of Christ apostle or leader living far from the centers, you must stay connected through the messages. I am giving the daily message for you that you will be connected as a body and know exactly what I want you to do.

The Daily Messages are the way I am directing My Movement. They are a gift, you must study them.

STUDY, LOVE, LEARN, stay united to the authority in the Movement. If you are working as a leader "out there", it is important you do the right thing.

I am Jesus. I am directing the Movement in My daily messages.

I give direction through My leaders.

You have made great advances in all the seeds you have planted.

Sit down and think of all the good accomplished, and praise God for the great work that is being accomplished in you.


I love you so much. Give praise for the good works being accomplished and obey the directions so you are all united following My lead.

I love you so much.

One mind and one heart in Jesus, that is your goal!!


That is you - you are My Shepherds helping to lead the flock home to My Heart.

I am Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the Flock.

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)
