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.

Messenger:        Dear People,

                                We need protection for the glass in
                            Florida, Jesus' face, I have done all
                            that I can to do this. We have 24 hour
                            surveillance under the image.

                                We watch the News and sordid
                            trials about sexual encounters play over and
                            over again and little attention or none has 
                            been given to the fact the Blessed Mother
                            appeared there for 7 years then her
                            face was shot out.

August 4, 2004 message continues

Messenger:         Now Jesus' face appears and
                                who will help us protect it.
                                We struggle so each month for
                                the building payment, it took
                                until the 15th of the month last

                            People can say we never protected
                                Mary's image that's why it was
                                broken in, but who has helped
                                us to protect it or even helped with
                                the monthly payment?

                            We sent the Priestly Newsletter 6
                                times a year to priests all over
                                the world for 6 years

                            Our regular distribution was
                                75,000 priests, centered
                                in Consecration to the Hearts
                                of Jesus and Mary.

                            Then for three years we sent more
                                the Priestly Newsletter Book II
                                2 Newsletters
                                Spirituality Handbook and novena
                                    of Masses and the Prayer Manual.

Messenger:         Jesus gave His all.

                            Jesus, the Son of God, came to this earth a helpless
                                baby, in the womb of a human person.
                                God gave Himself He gave His all
                                    to His death on the cross.

                            He was buried in a tomb.

                            Jesus is the Son of God, He could have stopped it at
                                any moment. He could have stopped
                                the beatings. They put a dirty purple
                                robe on His bleeding wounds, it stuck
                                to the wounds.

                                Did you ever have anyone spit on you?
                                What a despicable thing to do to the Son of God.
                                When one gives more and more in a relationship,
                                    lots of times others give less and less.

Jesus speaks:          A man was given two talents He
                            buried them.

                                I give you gifts. I am the all merciful
                            God. I showed you how I loved you
                            I came to this earth, a baby, I
                            was beaten, My flesh was torn, I
                            allowed them to put Me to death.

                                        Death -- Resurrection

                            Mary married Mike and everyday she
                                cleaned the house and made
                                wonderful meals, she loved Mike,
                                she wanted to make him happy,
                                she wanted to give him a good

                                The more Mary gave, the more Mike
                                    backed up because of his
                                    dysfunctional ways.

                                He began not coming home at
                                    night for dinner and said
                                    hateful things to build a big
                                    wall between him and
                                    Mary Ann.

                                He was so wounded he wouldn't
                                    let anyone give anything to
                                    him and more than that
                                    Mike wanted to do what he
                                    wanted he never married
                                    Mary Ann to be close and love her.
                                    He did it for himself.

                                Carol married Carl, Carol likewise
                                    wanted to make Carl happy
                                    She did many things for him
                                    Carl did many things for her
                                    and they shared intimate love.

                                    When the children were born they
                                    learned how to give and take
                                    and learned how to love.

                                Some people because of wounded
                                    relationships back up more and
                                    more allowing the other to
                                    work harder and harder while they
                                    sit back as the superior partner,
                                    never sharing, ready to run if
                                    they want to. Because someone
                                    "burned" them in a relationship they
                                    continue burning others day
                                    after day because their lack of

                                They are wounded. They don't focus
                                    on the love I give them. They
                                    measure their actions giving
                                    out very little only what they
                                    can get away with because
                                    they don't have the strength
                                    of My love deeply embedded
                                    in their soul. They give little
                                    time and energy they are in
                                    it for themselves. They really
                                    know little of real love

                                This is the mode of many today
                                    "get all I can for me" (they think)
                                    give as little as I can for you
                                    and sit back in the place of
Everything is focused on themselves
                                    and their glory.

                                Because you give little of
                                    yourselves really give
                                    little is really experienced

                                How do you know about love?
                                    Study how I loved.
                                    I came to the earth, the Son of
                                    God, I gave My all for you
                                    for the sake of souls.

                                The Shepherds of Christ, the Church,
                                    the family will be tremendously
                                    successful depending on your
                                    heartfelt commitment.

                                I have watched people use My Movement,
                                    the gifts I have given and give
                                    nothing back to help Me spread
                                    My words of love in God's
                                    Blue Book to the world.

                                Even those in the Movement that run
                                    it, their attitude can be what is
                                    in it for me and fail to commit
                                    or help out.

                                The more I have given through the
                                    daily apparitions July 5, 1994
                                    September 5, 1995 the 7 years of Mary
                                    on the building in Clearwater the more
                                    I am ignored.

                                    Literally who will even help
                                protect My face or help with the

                                    I give you so many gifts
                                    I give you Myself in the Eucharist
                                        every day
                                    Fewer and Fewer Churches will stay
                                        open unless you listen to what
                                        I have told you.
                                        I gave these prayers to Fr. Carter
                                            ten years ago.

                                This is My Movement to help renew the Church and
                                    the world.

                                    Since, your world has under gone
                                        large amounts of destruction to
                                        the Church because of the
                                        sex scandal. Prayer
                                        manuals were 15 cents the devil
                                        has blocked My prayers from
                                        Churches all over the world by
                                        people removing the prayer manuals
                                        given from My Sacred Heart
                                        filled with love for souls to
                                        the world.

                                    You have ignored Me
                                    You have treated My face on the window
                                        like nothing
                                    You know the story of Mary Ann and
                                        she made his dinner
                                        she did sweet things for him
                                        and he treated her mean.

                                My Mother was permitted to appear for
                                    7 years on the building in Clearwater
                                    you have tested your God

                                You give little and take more and more.
                                You could help with the Rosaries to the
                                    Schools as My Mother has
                                    requested appearing a decade,
                                        but many do not
                                    Or visit the Nursing homes
                                        Many assisted living could
                                            make rosaries
                                        School children could make

                                I give you this message from your

                                    "Unless a sufficient number of people
                                        have consecrated their hearts to
                                        the Hearts of Jesus and Mary you
                                        won't have peace in the

                                Many have buried their talents they
                                    spend their time on their yards
                                    their diets, their workouts but
                                    fail to even pray a rosary a day
                                    or go to Mass.


Excerpt from The Spirituality of Fatima and Medjugorje

July 13, 1917

   "During this same July apparition, Mary showed the three children a vision of Hell. She told them:

    "You have seen Hell, where the souls of poor sinners go. To save them, God wishes to establish, in the world, devotion to my Immaculate Heart. If people do what I tell you, many souls will be saved and there will be peace.

    "The war (World War I, then raging) is going to end. But if people do not stop offending God, another and worse one will begin in the reign of Pius XI. When you shall see a night illuminated by an unknown light [January 2, 1938], know that this is the great sign that God gives you that He is going to punish the world for its many crimes by means of war, hunger, and persecution of the Church and the Holy Father. (12)

    "To prevent this, I shall come to ask for the consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart and the Communion of Reparation on the five first Saturdays. If my requests are granted, Russia will be converted and there will be peace. If not, she will scatter her errors throughout the world, provoking wars and persecutions of the Church. The good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer, and various nations will be destroyed....

    "But in the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph, the Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, Russia will be converted, and a certain period of peace will be granted to the world." (13)

August 4, 2004 message continues

Jesus speaks:          I grow tired I watch the money spent
                                    on law suits and I have appeared
                                    to give you My Prayers in the
                                    Prayer Manual.



August 4, 2004 message continues

Jesus speaks:          Talk about blindness
                                    Those I have called have taken and taken
                                        and many are selfish in their hearts
                                        Many do not do it for love
                                        Many could not be moved

                                Satan is a seducer

                                I call My brides for these end times

                                I call a Church filled with love for
                                    My Sacred Heart, but you can't
                                    get out of yourself

                                I call My bride to purity
                                    to wear a white dress


Revelation 21: 1-2

The heavenly Jerusalem

Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; the first heaven and the first earth had disappeared now, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride dressed for her husband.


August 4, 2004 message continues

Jesus speaks:          Satan has you tied like a mummy and
                                    you are jumping around

                                Some are worse than the blind man
                                    Do you have energy in your heart and
                                        love to deliver My Message

                                    A baby takes a bottle and cries
                                        and screams to be fed and

                                    How can My work be done with
                                        babies? Some have given into satan's
                                        seductive ways to get you tied up.

                                    My Mother appeared 7 years
                                        every day and My "holy ones"
                                        complained and complained under
                                        her image. Some fought.

                                I am God

                                I have called My brides

                                Satan has taken you aside to seduce

                                Out of all the people on the earth I
                                    have called you to be a people
                                    of love and deliver this message
                                    of love.

                                Carol gave love to her husband Carl
                                    Carl loved her in return.

                                I give love to you, many take it
                                    and don't give anything back
                                    so others can share the gifts I
                                    have imparted to them.

                                I want you to do what I have asked
                                    for not go off and do something
                                    I didn't ask for.

                                Praying the prayers daily

                                Attending daily Mass

                                Lovingly telling the priest about the
                                    prayer manual and how it
                                    has helped you and so many

                                How is your heart?

                                Is it pure?

                                Are your intentions for pride or to do
                                    what I ask for? Are you like a bride that
                                    lives to please her husband?

                                Is your commitment to get more for
                                    yourself or you don't commit
                                    the attitude "what's in it for me,
                                        for my glory"

                                Beautiful churches are closing
                                    You have fewer and fewer priests
                                    You have fewer and fewer Masses
                                    IT WILL GET WORSE UNLESS YOU LISTEN TO ME
                                    I give you My Movement at the
                                        end of the 2nd Millennium

                                    My Mother appears for 7 years
                                        on a busy corner

                                    She gives you so many gifts.

                                    Here is how she appeared all
                                        the 5ths.

Jesus speaks:          And now I appear
                                        Even the people at My site
                                        sometimes have little energy
                                        to tell My precious souls about
                                        My Blue Book writings

                                    You are tired
                                    Well if you don't do much then
                                        nobody will and satan
                                        knows it so he presses
                                        on you.

                                    "Oh I am so tired"
                                    "Oh I will do it tomorrow"

                                You have been given great grace.
                                Heaven has contacted earth.
                                You are asked to deliver My message

                                You are asked to do it the way
                                    I asked you.

                                Satan is the seducer
                                    he wants you filled with pride
                                    he wants you filled with jealousy
                                    he wants you filled with selfishness.

                                Some people are like a stubborn
                                    mule if it isn't their idea
                                    they would never do it

                                some have impurity of intention
                                    they ask themselves over and over
                                    again "what is in it for me."

                            Remember the "3 classes of men" from St. Ignatius
                                Spiritual Exercises
                                I ask you to do specific things

                                    spread the prayer manuals
                                    do the prayers in the prayer manuals
                                    help support the Priestly Newsletter
                                    pray for all the intentions of the Movement
                                    discern the spirits don't do things
                                        I don't tell you to do with
                                        Shepherds of Christ Materials

                                    begin prayer chapters
                                    spread the Blue Books
                                    Ask for donations
                                    Help with the school rosary program
                                    attend daily Mass
                                    spread the materials

                                    have a pure attitude for doing it
                                    pray for souls
                                    do what I am calling you to do.

                                    Commit with love in your heart
                                        get rid of the attitude
                                        "What's in it for me"

                                    Some get false messages and act
                                        on them.

                                    Spiritual direction is needed to
                                        discern if it is the evil one
                                        acting or the good Spirit.

                                    Please do not act on any messages
                                        for the Shepherds of Christ that are not
