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.

Excerpt from The Spirituality of Fatima & Medjugorje

by Father Carter, S.J.

    More than 30,000 people were present in September, and saw a shower of mysterious white petals fall to within 10 feet of the ground before dissolving into the air. Many also saw the globe of light bearing the Lady come to rest atop the tree, and the branches bend as though someone were standing on them. Later, they saw the cloud depart into the east, from whence it had come.(16)

                         messages --
                         they will tell 
                         you God's will.

August 15, 2000 - Feast of the Assumption


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.


Readings from Mass today


Psalm 45: 10,11,12,16

Listen, my daughter, attend to my words and hear;
forget your own nation and your ancestral home,
then the king will fall in love with your beauty;
he is your lord, bow down before him.
The daughter of Tyre will court your favour with gifts,
and the richest of peoples

Instead of your ancestors you will have sons;


  Revelation 11: 19,12:1-6,10

Then the sanctuary of God in heaven opened, and the ark of the covenant could be seen inside it. Then came flashes of lightning, peals of thunder and an earthquake and violent hail.

     Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman, robed with the sun, standing on the moon, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. She was pregnant, and in labour, crying aloud in the pangs of childbirth. Then a second sign appeared in the sky: there was a huge red dragon with seven heads and ten horns, and each of the seven heads crowned with a coronet. Its tail swept a third of the stars from the sky and hurled them to the ground, and the dragon stopped in front of the woman as she was at the point of giving birth, so that it could eat the child as soon as it was born. The woman was delivered of a boy, the son who was to rule all the nations with an iron sceptre, and the child was taken straight up to God and to his throne, while the woman escaped into the desert, where God had prepared a place for her to be looked after for twelve hundred and sixty days.

Then I heard a voice shout from heaven, 'Salvation and power and empire forever have been won by our God, and all authority for his Christ,...'


1 Corinthians 15:20-26

    In fact, however, Christ has been raised from the dead, as the first–fruits of all who have fallen asleep. As it was by one man that death came, so through one man has come the resurrection of the dead. Just as all die in Adam, so in Christ all will be brought to life; but all of them in their proper order: Christ the first–fruits, and next, at his coming, those who belong to him. After that will come the end, when he will hand over the kingdom to God the Father, having abolished every principality, every ruling force and power. For he is to be king until he has made his enemies his footstool, and the last of the enemies to be done away with is death, for he has put all things under his feet. 


        Luke 1: 39-56

     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.’

And Mary said:
My soul proclaims
    the greatness of the Lord
and my spirit rejoices
    in God my Saviour;

because he has looked upon
    the humiliation of his servant.

Yes, from now onwards
    all generations will call me blessed,
for the Almighty
    has done great things for me.
Holy is his name,
and his faithful love extends age after age
    to those who fear him.

He has used the power of his arm,
he has routed the arrogant of heart.
He has pulled down princes
    from their thrones
        and raised high the lowly.
He has filled the starving with good things,
    sent the rich away empty.
He has come to the help
    of Israel his servant,
        mindful of his faithful love

--according to the promise
    he made to our ancestors--
of his mercy to Abraham
    and to his descendants for ever.

Mary stayed with her some three months and then went home.

Messenger: What does it mean to be a Shepherd of Christ? 

It means to be so closely connected to Him in this mission of helping to redeem souls for the Kingdom.

It means no matter how many obstacles are placed before us we never lose that vision at the top of the mountain of Him.

It means being a SHEPHERD OF CHRIST, one who takes seriously his mission to help lead souls to Him.

The days may seem dark, the money may seem scarce, and yet we see with sunlit eyes a Lady Clothed with the Sun, one covered with a golden light that looks as the glowing light of fire. We see God in His glory, and we want Him and want the world to be as He desires, and we want to lead souls to Him. 




Messenger: I remember one of the cold 5ths in Florida in 1998 when we prayed beneath Mary's image and I thought, "Oh, it will be cold for them to pray here," and Jesus spoke and He said, "My child, My Mother is appearing on this building."

We must not lose sight of what a gift this is that God has given to us, and that He is directing us daily in this mission. We must believe He is with us and watching us and helping us to grow in greater holiness and helping us to lead more souls to Him.

It is in oneness this will be accomplished. As we work side by side in the Shepherds of Christ we must want what He wants and follow His plan. Our intention cannot be for self-promotion, but should be after the example of Mary who speaks of herself in the Magnificat. We are the handmaid of the Lord.

God is all powerful. In one Mass that we attend with a true heart of love, He can release such grace for our needs.

We must see our fellow members and really love them and work toward oneness in this mission as brothers and sisters, not sacrificing the things He has asked us to do, but pulling together as a body, especially in intercessory prayer. We want to be united to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass always, praying as a body and trusting in Him.

What does it mean to be a Shepherd of Christ? It means, first of all, growing in greater holiness ourselves, and it means praying as an intercessor for our priests, our Church and our world. It means trying to reach bishops and priest with the priestly newsletter that they will consecrate their dioceses to the Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart.

Being a Shepherd of Christ means trying to help with the mission Mary began at Fatima 1917, to get the world to pray and give their hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary and to pray the rosary as she asked at Fatima and help others to know about the rosary and tell them Mary wants them to pray. 


Excerpt from The Spirituality of Fatima and Medjugorje, p. 3

Fatima: The Setting

On October 13, 1917, there were more than 70,000 people gathered in the Cova da Iria in Fatima, Portugal. They had come to observe a miracle which had been foretold by the Blessed Virgin to three young visionaries: Lucia dos Santos, and her two cousins, Jacinta and Francisco Marto. 1 Shortly after noon, Our Lady appeared to the three visionaries:

As the Lady was about to leave, she pointed to the sun. Lucy excitedly repeated the gesture, and the people looked into the sky. The rain had ceased, the clouds parted, and the sun shone forth, but not in its usual brilliance. Instead, it appeared like a silver disc, pale as the moon, at which all could gaze without straining their eyes. Suddenly, impelled by some mysterious force, the disc began to whirl in the sky, casting off great shafts of multicolored light. Red, green, blue, yellow, violet--the enormous rays shot across the sky at all angles, lighting up the entire countryside for many miles around, but particularly the upturned faces of those 70,000 spellbound people.

After a few moments the wonder stopped, but resumed again a second and a third time--three times in all--within about 12 minutes. It seemed that the whole world was on fire, with the sun spinning at a greater speed each time.

Then a gasp of terror rose from the crowd, for the sun seemed to tear itself from the heavens and come crashing down upon the horrified multitude.... Just when it seemed that the ball of fire would fall upon and destroy them, the miracle ceased, and the sun resumed its normal place in the sky, shining forth as peacefully as ever.

When the people arose from the ground, cries of astonishment were heard on all sides. Their clothes, which had been soaking wet and muddy, now were clean and dry. Many of the sick and crippled had been cured of their afflictions. 2

Excerpt from The Spirituality of Fatima and Medjugorje, p. 12

Fatima: The Message

May 13, 1917, marks the first appearance of Our Lady of Fatima to Lucia, Jacinta, and Francisco. On this occasion, she said to the visionaries:

Do not be afraid, I will do you no harm..... I am from Heaven.

I have come to ask you to come here for six months in succession, on the 13th day, at the same hour. Later on, I will tell you who I am and what I want

Are you willing to offer yourselves to God and bear all the sufferings He wills to send you, as an act of reparation for the sins by which He is offended, and in supplication for the conversion of sinners?

Pray the Rosary every day in order to obtain peace for the world, and the end of the war. 8

August 15, 2000 - Second Message

Jesus speaks: My dear Sidney Sub-Center and other Sub-Centers:

I write to you to pray for Fr. Willig and all priests that are dying. I write to you to pray for your priests. I write to you because I want you at Sidney to take a special interest in sisters and pray also for the handmaids and servants.

Today is healing day. On September 5, 2000, there will be a special rosary for healing in Florida. Please begin praying for this healing rosary and all who go there and all those united with the prayers that special day. Pray for the grace to be released for healing and for all attending to cooperate with these graces. Please pray for prayer chapters all over the world to be begun, especially on Tuesdays for healing and Sundays for the youth. The prayers of the Good Shepherd are most powerful when recited near Mass times and when recited in churches. I will give special grace to that church and its people when the Shepherd of Christ prayers are prayed in churches. They will help that church to become a little city of light.

Oh, My Sidney group, do not lose heart, pray fervently. I am with you. The devil does not want this Center started. Fight the temptation to not participate. I love you so much. I have called you to help Me here in this area. I love you, Jesus.


Jesus speaks: Dear Sidney area,

August 9, 2000


To All Members of the Shepherds of Christ Movement,

Especially Apostles, Handmaids and Servants -

Jesus asks that all prayerfully study Issue Three, 2000, of the newsletter. Having done this, they should go back to it from time to time.

Messenger: Pray through Jacinta's powerful intercession for the securing of the building for the purpose Jesus and Mary want.

Messenger: I ask the readings of Mass be put here:


Jeremiah 31: 1-7

When that time comes, Yahweh declares, I shall be the God of all the families of Israel, and they will be my people.

   Yahweh says this:
   They have found pardon in the desert,
   those who have survived the sword.
   Israel is marching to his rest.
   Yahweh has appeared to me from afar;
   I have loved you with an everlasting love
   and so I still maintain
      my faithful love for you.
   I shall build you once more,
      yes, you will be rebuilt,
   Virgin of Israel!
   Once more in your best attire,
   and with your tambourines,
   you will go out dancing gaily.
   Once more you will plant vineyards
   on the mountains of Samaria
   (those who plant will themselves
      enjoy the fruit).
   Yes, a day will come
      when the watchmen shout
   on the mountains of Ephraim,
   ‘Up! Let us go up to Zion,
   to Yahweh our God!'

   For Yahweh says this:
   Shout with joy for Jacob!
   Hail the chief of nations!
   Proclaim! Praise! Shout,
   ‘Yahweh has saved his people,
   the remnant of Israel!’


Jeremiah 31: 10, 11-12, 13

   Listen, nations, to the word of Yahweh.
   On the farthest coasts and islands
      proclaim it, say,
   ‘He who scattered Israel is gathering him,
   will guard him as a shepherd
      guarding his flock.’

   For Yahweh has ransomed Jacob,
   rescued him from a hand
      stronger than his own.
   They will come, shouting for joy
      on the heights of Zion,
   thronging towards Yahweh’s lavish gifts,
   for wheat, new wine and oil,
   sheep and cattle;
   they will be like a well–watered garden,
   they will sorrow no more.

   The young girl will then take pleasure
      in the dance,
   and young men and old alike;
   I shall change their mourning
      into gladness,
   comfort them, give them joy
   after their troubles;


Matthew 15: 21-28

The daughter of the Canaanite woman healed

Jesus left that place and withdrew to the region of Tyre and Sidon. And suddenly out came a Canaanite woman from that district and started shouting, ‘Lord, Son of David, take pity on me. My daughter is tormented by a devil.’ But he said not a word in answer to her. And his disciples went and pleaded with him, saying, ‘Give her what she wants, because she keeps shouting after us.’ He said in reply, ‘I was sent only to the lost sheep of the House of Israel.’ But the woman had come up and was bowing low before him. ‘Lord,’ she said, ‘help me.’ He replied, ‘It is not fair to take the children’s food and throw it to little dogs.’ She retorted, ‘Ah yes, Lord; but even little dogs eat the scraps that fall from their masters’ table.’ Then Jesus answered her, ‘Woman, you have great faith. Let your desire be granted.’ And from that moment her daughter was well again.


     Oh, there is not one so fair as thee, my beloved Mother Mary.

     Of all the maidens that God could have chosen it was you, oh shining Star of Heaven.

     Oh Mary, Mother of us all.

     She doth appear as a wonder so fair indeed,

     A permanent sign of God's love.
      A Woman clothed in gold.
      One that glistens with the radiance of a golden tone,

     Her beauty dancing in the sunlit hours of every day.

     In morning splendor, in dancing light at noon day as the sun glistens on her rainbow glow and at night she has appeared on special dates in golden splendor and light.

     Would you quote the Scripture for Mary so fair.

     "Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman, robed with the sun, standing on the moon, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. She was pregnant, and in labour, crying aloud in the pangs of childbirth." (Revelation 12: 1-2)

     Would you see her as she appeared in little villages in the 20th century, tucked in hills and out of the way places.

     If you missed these enormous signs from heaven, of one so fair, she appears there clothed in the golden sun of the day, reflecting her radiant beauty painted by the hand of the Father. She is His chosen maiden so fair.

     She appears daily, she is there by day and beneath the black shadows of night, she does not slumber, but calls to her children of light to come through her golden doorway and let the light of Christ shine in their souls.

     She appears one so fair, by day and sometimes by night clothed in radiance and golden, her garment hemmed with glistening sunlight. She once appeared to a few and her visits fleeting in remotest places, she remains a Woman Clothed with the Sun, the sun dancing on her garments of rainbow color on a busy, busy corner for all to see, in the state of the sun, sunny Florida. She is a Woman painted by the brush of God.

     And do you know the wonder of one who calls the children far and wide, to hear the voice of her Son, Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the Flock.

     Mary, the heavenly maiden, to call them home to His Heart.

     Oh, of one so fair, do we not boast and praise our God and thank Him for such a wonder.

     Oh, to Mary, Queen of Heaven and Earth, we cry, help us to do what you asked for at Fatima and help us in our mission of telling the world of your Son's desire to spread His Movement so men will be Shepherds of Christ.


Matthew 12: 38-42

The sign of Jonah

Then some of the scribes and Pharisees spoke up. ‘Master,’ they said, ‘we should like to see a sign from you.’ He replied, ‘It is an evil and unfaithful generation that asks for a sign! The only sign it will be given is the sign of the prophet Jonah. For as Jonah remained in the belly of the sea–monster for three days and three nights, so will the Son of man be in the heart of the earth for three days and three nights. On Judgement Day the men of Nineveh will appear against this generation and they will be its condemnation, because when Jonah preached they repented; and look, there is something greater than Jonah here. On Judgement Day the Queen of the South will appear against this generation and be its condemnation, because she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and look, there is something greater than Solomon here.


Messenger: On July 5, 2000, Mary looked gold to me that day. She had a gold tint. I wish this picture from July 5, 2000, to appear here by day and by night.


Messenger: When I traveled to Florida on the 5ths of the month since we began leasing the building, the glass was black during the winter 6:20 prayer services and rosaries. I couldn't see Mary on those visits, only a very faint outline. On December 17, 1999, the 3rd anniversary of Mary's appearance, many of us saw Mary appear in gold on the building at the nightly prayer service. Then she began appearing on most of the 5ths after that, especially at the end of the rosary.

So they say to us, how much does it cost to hold onto that building and I say this. It is so difficult for us to come up with the funds for the building rent and to send the priestly newsletter and prayer manuals around the world. Literally the newsletter goes from China, Indiana, to China the country. The last postage to send the special English edition of the newsletter to the 90 foreign countries was $15,000, not to mention printing, paper, the U.S. mailing cost and sending the Spanish edition of the newsletter.

A place in Africa wants 20,000 prayer manuals for a certain area that could use that many prayer manuals.

Mary is appearing on the building to tell us that we must do what she said at Fatima. The Fatima message asks for consecration to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, daily praying of the rosary, observing the First Saturday devotion and making reparation to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

Our lives in the Shepherds of Christ are given to help save souls. This was Mary's cry at Fatima when she appeared to the three children, July 13, 1917, and showed them a vision of hell.

Messenger: The vision given to Lucia, June 13, 1929, is a call to unite to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and beg for grace and mercy.

Messenger: Part of our mission is to reach the priests with her plea at Fatima.

As we struggle with the financial issue, we as a body of people, Shepherds of Christ apostles, are focusing more and more on this issue of helping to reach the world and help save souls as we try to grow in greater holiness ourselves.

Never before in the history of the world has such a visible sign of the Virgin Mary been given, and yet it is as if people do not even see her.

Today is a new day to grow more and more in our deep union with Him and to help save souls.

We are reaching the bishops and they are responding.

The Father wants the world to respond to this mission.

We have as a body of people given our lives and our money and we need others to respond and help us with their prayers and their financial assistance.

Does the world not see the Lady on the building? Would you not obey God and try to do what Jesus and Mary are asking us to do from that building?

There are stadiums that cost  so much money and sports stars that receive salaries of such money and we can hardly pay the rent for the Virgin Mary building.

Do you really believe that God wouldn't want us to use that building to help reach the world with the plea of the Woman of Fatima, to reach the world with the message of prayer, attending Mass, praying the rosary and giving ourselves to the pure Hearts of Jesus and Mary, the New Adam and the New Eve.

Oh, Jesus, help us to obtain the funds we need for this mission.

Oh, God the Father, in the name of Your Son, please grant the grace to men to be open.

Jesus speaks: The writings of your founder are so important to the Church and the world.

I want the world to pray the prayers I have given as I have directed.

Beg them to hear you.

I want the world to respond.

Why are they so stubborn and why do they ignore the Lady of Clearwater?

Please promote this image for the purpose I have dictated in the Shepherds of Christ.

I want Shepherds of Christ praying all over the world.

You value your $70 opera seats and $8 seats at the movies and you do not even see the magnificence of the sign given to you of the Lady in Florida.


Revelation 12: 1-2

Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman, robed with the sun, standing on the moon, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. She was pregnant, and in labour, crying aloud in the pangs of childbirth.


Jesus speaks: Please hear Me and help Me reach the world with My Movement.

My mission here is to bring to completion the mission My Mother began at Fatima.

I am Jesus, the Son of God - help Me.

The image on the building is a sign for you from the Father.

You must hear My voice.

You must pray.

Do you remember World War II? You have not answered the Lady of Fatima yet - help Me.

Mary speaks: I request my message given, July 28, 2000, for the prayer service, August 5, 2000, in Florida be given here.


Excerpt from the Glorious Mysteries, July 28, 2000, given in China, Indiana


Mary speaks: Oh my children. And I cry to you this night. For I want the rosary to be in the hands of my children all over the world as I asked at Fatima in 1917. And so many years later I still cry to you, my blinded earth. And I appear on the building and people go by and they do not even see, for they are so busy for their lives. And yet I ask you to meditate on the scene of Oscar and the funeral. For it is a sunny day outside and inside in the funeral parlors of this world and the churches where services are held for the dead. The connection between heaven and earth is so clear that this life here is not forever. And I cry to you my children to help me to do what my Son, Jesus, has asked of you, to help to begin the prayer chapters, to pray for the Church and the world and for your priests. Oh my children, you do not know the gifts that you are given in the Blessed Sacrament and in the priests. You must pray for them. The power, my children is in the Eucharist. It is through the hands of the priests that you receive this great gift from your God and you must pray for them. Will you help me throughout the world by spreading these prayer chapters and uniting your hearts to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass? And in everything that you do, in your sleeping and your eating, offer up your lives to the Father, making everything you do a prayer. It is so simple my children. And enormous grace will be released to the world. And so We have given to you a small card that you can spread to all the souls of this earth, that says, "Father, we give our lives to You united to the Mass for the sake of souls, for the Church and the world and our priests." So much grace, my children, will be released on the earth when you lay your lives down united to the Mass. My Son gave Himself as a Sacrifice for you, and today enormous grace will be released the more you unite to the Mass in everything that you do. And the elderly are sitting in their chairs and lying in their beds, and they want to know that their lives are important. And you can tell them to offer up whatever it is that they do. It is God’s will that there is this slowing down process in the lives of many. And their lives are so important to the souls of this earth. Will you please ask them to offer their lives as a sacrifice united to the Mass? And when they eat, when they endure the suffering, when they walk, oh so slowly and they struggle, all those activities can help the souls of the earth enormously when united to the Mass. Oh my children, my children, I love you so. My adults, you must pray, for you ignore me and you go about your busy days with all your pleasures and your whims. It is all right to enjoy your life, but you ignore your God. And you do not take the time to pray. How can I make you see how serious this is, for you will not listen to me?

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.

August 9, 2000

This is the day of the Lord, let us rejoice and be glad in it. Alleluia.

Messenger: My dear apostles,

I give my heart to Jesus and Mary with you in love. Jesus has given us the greatest gift, a sharing in His divine life so abundantly in the Eucharist. This is life. Let us treasure this gift and make it our desire to tell the world of the gift of Jesus Christ truly with us in the Holy Eucharist. I thank God for our beloved founder and all of you who so faithfully serve and love God so very much.

Today is about life! The great life we share in Him. Let us join as a body singing praise and thanking God for the gifts He has given to us. Let us, little babies laying ourselves bare, tell Him how dependent we are on Him to do this work. Give it all to   Him and ask Him to direct our lives and help us to do great things reaching the souls. Let us turn to prayer as never before, surrendering to Him and begging for grace and help with the funds.

Let's walk on the water realizing God is with us today. Please pray for two special intentions.

Pray for our founder, pray for August 12, 13, 14, grace and money.

I love you.



Jesus speaks: Please pray for all Shepherds of Christ intentions.

There is a meeting in China, Indiana, August 12 - August 14, 2000, a mini retreat. A special rosary is given at 12:00 noon China time August 13. A big body of people gather to pray from 12:00 - 5:00 August 13.

August 11, 2000

Messenger: And He gave us the wonders of the earth.

Why do we not see how good He is to us?

Why do we not trust Him?


Messenger: To have His life so deeply planted in our soul should be our desire.

As St. Paul says:


Galatians 2: 19-20

...I have been crucified with Christ and yet I am alive; yet it is no longer I, but Christ living in me.


Messenger: We gaze at the beauty of snow-capped mountains and gape at the lily pads on a glistening lake. Our eyes behold a falls of enormous proportion and beauty. We love Him and He is the Creator, and these things, the beauty, He has created for us to enjoy.

The depth of knowing Him increases as we are penetrated more and more with His grace.

The depth of loving increases as we are saturated with His life.

Every moment of this life we live more fully as we exist more and more in Him through a deeper penetration of His grace.

I see the mountains and the transfigured Lord. Let our eyes behold His vision. He is a God of goodness and He loves us so.

Let us experience insight into the divine mysteries more and more and taste the beauty of those who know they are loved by God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Where before we knew so little of the Trinity, we relate more fully with each Person and we know the oneness and the trinity of God.

What a gift to know more fully our Divine, Beautiful, all loving God.

God is Creator, we are His creatures. All that He creates reflects His goodness and His love. He is just and right. We must honor Him and love Him and thank Him for His gifts given to us.

Alleluia, praise Him, Our God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.


August 11, 2000 - Second Message

Walk in the TRUTH


The blue of the sky we cannot capture exactly.

The white of the snow.

The color of the smoke of the geyser.

Do we not see the fire of the stars, the light of the sun, the denseness of the black night. It is the creation of God and we cannot describe it exactly as it is.

God speaks:

Oh, open your eyes, men, and see the softness of the skin of the baby, the intricacies of a human ear, the complexities of a human eye and the master mind of the Creator in the function of a human heart.

Oh, blind men, those who are so prideful, bow to God your Creator. See with the eyes of faith.

It is I who paint the hills with My mystical wand. It is reality. So, too, the things you do not see, they are real. It is your perception that is off. God Is and He is Divine and you cannot create as I do.

Get off your pedestals and live in reality. I am Supreme, you are under Me, but I elevate you to such  heights.

Oh, men of the earth, worship God your Creator, be humble, live in the truth. If you are intelligent it is because of My grace and My goodness.

Huffy little men. Let Me see you produce the beauty of a sunlit field, from sun to flower. My men, you are limited, you are human, you are My creatures and I am your God. Recognize Me and live in the truth. Be docile to the hand of God in your life.

Oh, children of the light, hear Me, I am God.

I am the Light of the World.

In Me you live in the light.


My eyes beheld the beauty of the night, the stars, the moon.

My eyes beheld the sunlit day and the wonders of the lake and heard the trickle of the falls. First, faintly, and then as I approached, the sound of roaring water.

Why do men not comprehend the goodness of God? Why do they abuse Him with slang and slanting remarks?

The forest can burst into flame in the heat of the day and what was once a beauteous field, a garden of fruit, a forest of fir trees, can become lands of waste at the hands of the elements or what have you.

A home of lustrous beauty, ravaged by a violent wind of enormous proportion and you cry and then when the reality sets in you say, "Oh, but I have my life and the life of my children."

Oh, what is it that man can be so blind and then when health is taken away from a man, he sees those things that are transcendent, he sees the glory of God and the promise of everlasting life to those who love and serve the Lord.

We do not see and we do not understand the ways of God and yet in it all, He is attempting to lead us to Him, and He gives us the gifts of the universe. He gives us love.


August 11, 2000 - Third Message - Feast of St. Clare

Messenger: On this beautiful feast of St. Clare, I am overwhelmed with love for God and all others. I feel so connected to my brothers that are so dear to my heart. At Mass we prayed for a missionary, and I feel so close in my heart to the priest there beginning the mission with young men wanting to be priests. My heart burns with love for all even though I am not with them, I feel so connected to them in Him.

The Mass is the greatest, it unites us as a body no matter where we are. The love of God burns in my soul for all my brothers in the Movement that have given their lives to serve Him so selflessly.

God is love and He gives us Himself in the Holy Eucharist. What a gift God gives to us in the priest and in the Mass. God gives us Himself.

I live praying the rosary. My life is centered around the Mass, especially the one I will attend, and my great love is to be with Him after Communion and before the tabernacle and before the exposed Eucharist.

God is so good to us. He gives us Himself in the Eucharist. He gives us the priest and the Church and the sacraments. He gives us the saints and angels and Our Blessed Mother. God gives us such good things, a sunlit day, the beautiful green leaves, the wind that caresses our cheek, letting us know His presence with us. He gives us beautiful flowers and a blue sky, but more than all of these He gives us each other and hearts likened to Him to love. He gives us a beautiful baby, the tender skin, the gentle touch and He gives us the waters and the mountains to behold.

Let us live thanking Him for His gifts to us, living in the moment, being refreshed by His grace and helping to bring forth fruit for the Kingdom.


1 John 1: 5

God is light,
    and there is no darkness in him at all.


A Prayer of Thanksgiving
(To be recited daily at the end of the day)

O God, on behalf of Shepherds of Christ Ministries and Our Lady of Light Ministry, we offer up these prayers of thanksgiving:

Thank You Father for Your love, patience, and understanding. We know we are not worthy of such gifts, but that You give them anyway - because of Your great love for souls.

Thank You Jesus for the many gifts and graces You give us as members of Your Movement - Shepherds of Christ. We offer You our love and gratitude through Your Mother's Immaculate Heart.

Thank You Holy Spirit for Your special gifts. Please inspire us to be grateful for what we have been given. Please help us to give ourselves in love to You and all we meet.

Thank You Holy Trinity for Your boundless love and mercy. Please help us to nurture Your presence within us. Help us to be obedient to Your commands and give all the glory to You - Our loving God. We especially thank You for the gift of our Heavenly Mother, Mary.

Thank you Mary for your example while on earth, and for your constant intercession today. Please help us to grow in holiness and put into action all that your Son Jesus asks of us.

We thank St. Michael and the Holy Angels for their prayers, help, and protection. Finally, we thank the saints in heaven and the souls in purgatory for their prayers. We ask them to unite with us in giving thanks and praise to the most Holy Trinity - Our Heavenly Father, Our Lord Jesus, and our Comforter- the Holy Spirit.

We love You! We love You! We love You! Amen.
