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.

Mary speaks: My dear children,

I came to you in a special way on August 31, 1999, at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center. It was my plan from the beginning at Fatima to lead men into deep consecration in our Hearts and oneness so that there will be one flock and one Shepherd.

My children, the Heart of my Son is not divided. My children, they crucified my Son and made Him the Victim.

My children, a heart like Jesus' is one with all and loves all. My children should not have victims.

My children, my apparitions are to help save souls. I showed the Fatima children a vision of hell in July, 1917, with the following message.

Excerpt from The Spirituality of Fatima and Medjugorje, pp 14-15

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

(End of excerpt from The Spirituality of Fatima and Medjugorje.)

Mary speaks: My children, Fatima is private revelation. My children, do you see the devastation after World War II because they disobeyed me?

My children, do you see me appear on the building in Florida?

My children, I am Mary. I am not divided, my children. Today you still suffer the effects of the disobedience to the Fatima messages.

My children, the Shepherds of Christ Movement is my Son's mission to help to bring about the completion of the mission I began at Fatima. The collapsed corner of Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center is the sign He gave that you must not ignore His messages. The flooding of Falmouth, Kentucky, was a sign to you, my children, that you must listen to Him.

My children, I appear to lead you to the depth of the Heart of my Son.

I give you the message my Son gave in Blue Book II, one month before the corner collapsed at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center.

I wish the first paragraph be printed here; the remaining message can be found at the end of this writing.

A City on a Hill Shines to the World (excerpt)

God's Blue Book II Cover

February 23, 1994 5:30 a.m.

Jesus speaks: I am the light of the world. A city on a hill will shine to the world. You at the Center will be this city when you are filled to the brim with the love of Jesus. What power, what might, to have each person a personal spouse of Jesus Christ! This is the light to the darkened world. The love of Jesus radiates from the very being of those who love Him. What light when all together are lifted by His love abounding deep within their breasts!

Mary speaks: I give you my message of August 14, 1999, at 3:00 a.m. I wish this to be released at this time:

August 14, 1999 - Vigil of the Assumption

From Mary delivered at 3:00 a.m., awakened at 2:00 a.m.

Mary speaks: I appeared at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center daily. I ask this day that a prayer meeting as directed by my Son be held daily at 6:20 p.m. before the Sorrowful Mother statue, if possible, and the exposed Eucharist, if possible. It will go as follows, the format being that given in the February 23, 1999, message from Jesus.

I wish the main prayers of the Novena to the Holy Spirit to be prayed as directed by my Son, followed by the Shepherds of Christ prayers and the rosary. I wish my messenger or any person of Shepherds of Christ to lead this prayer service. I wish the freedom for the messenger to be there. I wish a worthy-standing apostle in the Shepherds of Christ to lead the prayers. This is my request. I am Our Lady of Fatima, Our Lady of Clearwater, Our Lady of the Rosary, Our Lady of Sorrows - Our Lady of the Holy Spirit. This is my Center, this is my request. I cannot tell you the importance of this message to the plan of the Father. Because of willfulness it has been blocked. Because of the workings of Satan, it has been blocked. I am Our Lady of Light. I appeared there daily from July 5, 1994 - September 5, 1995. I ask for this: a simple prayer meeting to comply with the format set by Jesus, February 23, 1999. I am Our Lady of the Rosary. I wish this to be begun immediately. You will pray as I have instructed because you love me. I am Our Lady of the Holy Spirit. For this prayer meeting the Holy Spirit Prayers to be recited are those given by my Son.

I am Our Lady of the Holy Spirit. This is my Center. You will listen if you love me and Him. I am Our Lady of the Holy Spirit. I am Mary your Mother, Queen of Peace.

Special graces are given for healing (especially spiritual healing) wherever and whenever these prayers are prayed at 6:20 p.m. Tuesday.

I wish the youth to come on Sunday (and on Thursday at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center) at all places where the prayers are recited. These prayers can be recited in about one hour or less. I am Mary, please answer my request.

(End of August 14, 1999 message.)

Mary speaks: I called the people to come on August 31, 1999, to lead them to a deeper life of consecration, to pray for the priests and the renewal of the Church and the world.

I wish prayers as directed by my Son February 23, 1999, be said at 6:20 p.m. at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center. I wish the Mass for Healing to follow whenever possible.

I appear to you and give you gifts.

My children, please listen to me.

My children, if you love me, do not be divided.

I am Our Lady of the Holy Spirit.

I will reach so many of my children if you obey my wishes and that of my Son to pray the prayers as He has given.

Please help me. I am Mary. I am not divided. You are to lead the world into oneness.

I thank you for all you have done to reach my children. Please help me reach them in order to lead them to the Heart of my Son by praying the prayers (Shepherds of Christ Prayer Manual). Please help me reach the children with the School Rosary Program.

Please, please help me.

I am Mary your Mother.

A City on a Hill Shines to the World (excerpt)

God's Blue Book II Cover

Jesus speaks: I am the Way, the Truth and the Life. My life is the life inside that cannot be contained. It is bursting and budding forth. My life is the real life. To possess the life of Christ within your breast! Such power! I am the city set on a hill that will stand united and shine to this world. You at this Center will be this city. You will be the true Center that places the mark on this world.

The love of Christ, abounding deep within the breasts of all, will be the power and the might. Pray the Prayer for Union with Jesus. I will operate in the hearts of all there and minister to My sick world. I am the Heart of Jesus. I am on fire with love of each and every soul. When My love is found in all the hearts there, the light of God will shine to this world!

You are the city, set on a hill, that shines to the darkened world. I will light the world with the love of Jesus that shines in the hearts of those who are fed there. My light is so bright. My power is endless. You are the light to the dark world. You contain the mighty medicine to bring My sick ones to Me. You will bring so many back to Me and My intense love, burning so brightly for all!

I am the power. I am the might. He who abides in Me will have the light of life. I give Myself to you that you will live. You will radiate My presence from your very being. My light is the brightest light. I will live in the hearts of all who come to you for their feeding. Enkindle in them the love for My most Sacred Heart. It is on fire for love of you. It cannot be contained. It will live in all hearts who come to you to be fed.

You are the key to enkindle this burning love of Jesus in the hearts of so many. Many will know Jesus through your love of Me. Read these letters every day for I am truly speaking to you here. I love each child so dearly and want to have an intimate union with that child. Teach all about the burning love of Jesus. Read My messages with your heart on fire so you can tell all of My ardent love for them.

I long to be close to them. I am a person. I am God, on fire for love of My people. Bring all to the ardent love of Jesus. Mary is by My side constantly. Where I am, she is there. She wants all to be led to My ardent, longing love. Teach all about My love. Fill them so they are overflowing in their hearts. This is the mighty medicine. It is My letter of intense, ardent love for My people.

I am truly here, little ones. I am Jesus, Son of the Living God. I will live strongly in the hearts of all who come to you. You will be the key. Focus on your intense love of Me. Read My letters as a cookbook for intimacy with Me. My love waits for each person and I tell you here how to be close to Me. I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus on fire for love of you. I am longing for you to come and be with Me in silence. I will give you all you need.

I am the Alpha. I am the Omega. I am your all. I am God, one, true and magnificent, and I come to you with ardent love in Holy Communion and in the tabernacle. I am present, Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity. I am waiting. Our love affair waits and it depends on you. I am there and I am waiting. You keep us apart.

Tell them how I long for them and have all they need. The love of Christ will light their city. You will stand as the lighted city in darkness. My love will be that by which you light this dark world. Oh, such power, such might! The love of God will reign in the hearts of all you touch. You are My vessel to draw this world to the love of Jesus.

Read and study My letters and be taught about My ardent love. I am Jesus Christ and I am teaching you about My love on fire for all. Come and be powered by the hand of God. My love will rock the world off its rocker when it reigns in the hearts of those who come to you. I love you so! You are My beloved. I will use you to light My dark world. You will shine as candles in the darkest night and you will be the instruments I use to light their wicks. I am God and I love them so dearly!

This is My love for all. Power and might will shine forth on the land. I am the brightest light. Look into the light for the light. Look into the arms of Jesus. I will light this world through you. Alleluia. And the angels sang and the choirs of heaven were heard for the earth proclaimed the Love of Jesus. Alleluia
