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: Our Lord has told me that St. Joseph majorly is my protector and our protector in the Shepherds of Christ Movement.

Pray to him for me and for you, my beloved shepherd brothers and sisters.

On September 26, 1997, an earthquake hit Italy in Assisi. A second quake hit that same day. The first quake struck at 2:33 a.m., the second at 11:42 a.m., local time.

The Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi was damaged by the two quakes on Friday, September 26, 1997.

On September 22, 1997, I had received the message given yesterday on the Internet. I suffered so much the day I received the message and the next two days. Our Shepherds of Christ president, who had been out of town, called me Friday about 5:00 p.m. and told me of the earthquake.

The earthquake made a deep crack in the precious frescoes by Giotto of St. Francis and St. Clare. St. Francis was enormously important in helping in the Church.

A photographer reported about 11:30 a.m., "I was taking pictures of the frescoes when I felt a first tremor," he said. "Maybe five minutes later, there was a stronger one and in that instant it seemed like everything fell around me."

AP photographer Phinio Lepri, Associated Press

Here is a quote from Associated Press under a picture of the frescoes of St. Francis and St. Clare that circulated on papers around the world:

"Damage can be seen on the frescoes depicting St. Francis, left, and St. Clare at the Basilica after the first quake Friday. Shortly after this photo was taken, the fresco was destroyed by a second quake."


John 2:19-22

Jesus answered, ‘Destroy this Temple, and in three days I will raise it up.’ The Jews replied, ‘It has taken forty-six years to build this Temple: are you going to raise it up again in three days?’ But he was speaking of the Temple that was his body, and when Jesus rose from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this, and they believed the scripture and what he had said.


Messenger: And I quote from the message of yesterday as our Lord has directed me:


Excerpt from January 19, 1999 Daily Message:

Messenger: On September 22, 1997, He said, "Would the destruction of your temples bring you to your knees? Or should I destroy My own houses?"

I suffered and suffered for three days.

At the end of the week, an earthquake tore apart the Basilica in Assisi and a picture of St. Francis and St. Clare, a famous fresco, was on many of the newspapers around the world.

(end of January 19, 1999 excerpt)


Messenger: I give you the message of the Father, January 18, 1997:


January 18, 1997
God the Father:
My Dear Children,

I am the Father. My plan is unfolding through you, My beloved priest, Fr. Carter, and Rita and the core group in the Shepherds of Christ Movement.

I tell you all to read the accounts concerning Noah.

(end of January 18 1997 excerpt)


Messenger: On March 3, 1997, there was a newspaper story about the Falmouth flood. This flood happened after a warning and a prediction by the Father on February 10, 1997, in which He stated the Falmouth Farm was a disaster.

(NOTE: We do not comprehend the souls that have suffered in the Church and in the world because His Movement was partially blocked. This is not to deny that tremendous grace was given at Falmouth and that many received grace that led them to a deeper spiritual life. But the plan of the Father to take men into this deep spousal relationship with Jesus through His Movement, Shepherds of Christ, has been partially blocked, the School Rosary Program has been partially blocked, and certain aspects of reaching the priests through the newsletter were blocked.)

Messenger: The Shepherds of Christ Movement is a major part of Jesus’ Mission to bring about the reign of His Heart and the triumph of Mary’s Heart.

This mission was begun at Fatima. There were 6 apparitions May 13, 1917 -- October 13, 1917 of Our Lady of Fatima.

Jesus began a major part of the completion of this mission October 13, 1996 -- March 13, 1997.

Mary appeared on the building in Florida December 17, 1996, in the middle of the time period during which these special meetings were held.

These meetings continue on the 13th of every month. Included is an invitation from Jesus for you to come on the 82nd Anniversary of the Fatima Apparition.

Father Carter appeared as a pillar of light.

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.

Messenger: On September 23, 1997, Jesus speaks, one day after the message of September 22, 1997, before the earthquake in Assisi.

To Father Carter:

"I will renew the Church and the world through you, you are the victor of whom I speak, the white robe of glory I give to you...."


Excerpt from September 18, 1999 message:

Messenger: On February 19, 1995, Jesus appeared, His head turned, and He stated they were bumping into the building.

He pleaded with His arms outstretched. I received a message to be distributed.

Jesus told me to give this to certain people and that it must be passed out on February 23, 1995, to these people along with the message from February 23, 1994. This follows at the end of the message. He also said to include the message May 2, 1994.

I did so, some were to be out of town, but Jesus made it absolutely clear it was not to be passed out until February 23, 1995, and was to be given to all to whom I could on that date.

Today our Lord appeared, His arms outstretched as ruling as King and Teacher.

(end of September 18, 1999 message excerpt)


Messenger: February 19, 1995 message continued, "In three days I can destroy the temple and build it again."


Given April 10, 1997

The Father speaks: "I am asking that the priestly newsletter book be published as soon as possible and circulated to all priests and bishops in the United States, I am the Father..." (note: this has been done).

(end of April 10, 1997 excerpt)


Revelation 11:1-6
The two witnesses

Then I was given a long cane like a measuring rod, and I was told, ‘Get up and measure God’s sanctuary, and the altar, and the people who worship there; but exclude the outer court and do not measure it, because it has been handed over to gentiles -- they will trample on the holy city for forty-two months. But I shall send my two witnesses to prophesy for twelve hundred and sixty days, wearing sackcloth. These are the two olive trees and the two lamps in attendance on the Lord of the world. Fire comes from their mouths and consumes their enemies if anyone tries to harm them; and anyone who tries to harm them will certainly be killed in this way. They have the power to lock up the sky so that it does not rain as long as they are prophesying; they have the power to turn water into blood and strike the whole world with any plague as often as they like.


Psalm 118:19-25

Open for me the gates of saving justice,
I shall go in and thank Yahweh.
This is the gate of Yahweh,
where the upright go in.
I thank you for hearing me,
and making yourself my Saviour.

The stone which the builders rejected
has become the cornerstone;
This is Yahweh’s doing,
and we marvel at it.
This is the day which Yahweh has made,
a day for us to rejoice and be glad.

We beg you, Yahweh, save us,
we beg you. Yahweh, give us victory!

Luke 19:41-44
Lament for Jerusalem

As he drew near and came in sight of the city he shed tears over it and said, ‘If you too had only recognised on this day the way to peace! But in fact it is hidden from your eyes! Yes, a time is coming when your enemies will raise fortifications all round you, when they will encircle you and hem you in on every side; they will dash you and the children inside your walls to the ground; they will leave not one stone standing on another within you, because you did not recognise the moment of your visitation.'


December 19, 1996

Mary speaks:

"My dear children, I give to you my Son Jesus, born in a stable in Bethlehem on Christmas morn. He is the Almighty God, the Light of the World.

I appear to you, my children, on a (former) bank in Florida. You have made money your god! Do you know how cold are your hearts? You turn away from my Son, Jesus, for your money. Your money is your god.

I am Mary, your Mother. I do not appear as I once appeared to you. I am asking you today to circulate my message given on a tape on the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, December 12, 1996. Please circulate this tape now. Give it to as many people as you can. I am Mary, your Mother. Please circulate my Rosary Book."


January 23, 1997

Mary speaks:

"I appear on the building to draw men to the messages given in God’s Blue Book, Rosaries From the Hearts of Jesus and Mary and Tell My People. These books are the messages we give from our Hearts to draw men to our Hearts. They are the messages my Son gives to bring about the reign of His most Sacred Heart.

I ask you to circulate Mary’s Message in Florida and the rosaries (special Marian meditations and messages) of December 13, 1996, and January 13, 1997. These messages were given to reveal insights into His most intimate love. My appearance in Florida and the Shepherds of Christ Movement must be connected. Please work with great fervor to spread my messages and the message of my Son from this location. Do not be afraid. You will make great advances in helping with the completion of the Fatima Message there.

I am Mary, your Mother. Please obey me and help me spread these materials there.

I love you, my little children."
