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.

December 16, 1998

Jesus speaks (before Mass): There should not be anything but love in your hearts.

Your primary reason for existence is love.

You are one body.

There will always be problems.

God the Father speaks: I wish you to be joined as one body on the 17th of December. It is this day My messenger received the vision of My Son's Sacred Heart (on Blue Book II) on fire for love of men. As a pot bellied stove burns such an intense fire, the fires coming forth from His Heart are even greater. The hearts of men will be consumed with the fires of His Love.

My children I wish you, the Shepherds of Christ Movement, to be gathered at 6:30 p.m., as a body on December 17th. I wish this message to be revealed to the Movement and those involved in this day. I ask Fred to remain in China, Indiana, before the Blessed Sacrament from 6:30 p.m. to 12:00 (midnight) praying fervently, listening to the rosary of December 13, 1998. I wish Sue's core chapter, all that are able, to gather and pray from 6:30 p.m. until midnight, or as long as reasonably possible. I wish the tape of December 13, 1998, to be sent to them and for as many as possible to listen to this rosary. This is My desire this day. I wish all present to read aloud Mary's Message of August 27, 1996, as indicated in earlier messages.

I wish the Shepherds of Christ Movement to be joined in one body in prayer as never before from the hours of 6:30 p.m.-12:00 (midnight) on December 17th if possible.

I wish the core chapter to gather in Cincinnati and to follow the message given for the plan in Florida. I will that all be before a crucifix. I wish the rosary of December 13, 1998, to be played and all to attend.

I wish prayer all through the day from all members. I wish hourly prayer and as many as possible attending Mass and pleading to Me, the Father, in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary for grace for your world and for all of the endeavors of the 17th in Florida and for the Movement.

I wish as much community prayer as is possible. I wish all to be joined in one heart as never before pleading in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary for peace for the world, for the Shepherds of Christ intentions, for the Church and for all priests.

I beg the world to respond to Mary's vision by spreading the priestly newsletter and the prayers in the Shepherds of Christ Prayer Manual to the world.

This is a day of prayer for the Shepherds of Christ Movement.

Pray fervently for all intentions.

I ask all to please support this Movement and help them to do what I have asked.

Please help them, pray the prayers, pray for the coming of the Holy Spirit.

All who remain in Florida should pray intently every day until Christmas, including Christmas. Christmas is the 9th day.

You are to pray at all Centers for the coming of the Holy Spirit and the coming of Christ alive in your hearts.

Every person in the Movement is called to make an extra effort to pray the prayers and the rosary at 6:30 p.m., asking for the coming of the Holy Spirit and Christ alive in your hearts this Christmas.

This will be a nine day novena which I request for the shepherds keeping watch in this darkened night that your world is in.

Luke 2:15-20

Now it happened that when the angels had gone from them into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, 'Let us go to Bethlehem and see this event which the Lord has made known to us.' So they hurried away and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby lying in the manger. When they saw the child they repeated what they had been told about him, and everyone who heard it was astonished at what the shepherds said to them. As for Mary, she treasured all these things and pondered them in her heart. And the shepherds went back glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen, just as they had been told.

Messenger: All through the Mass, I saw the beautiful Mother on an ass and she held the Child Jesus. She had on a dark blue cape. I thought it was heavy and thick material, soft as velvet. Her head was covered and she sat on the donkey, both feet to one side, holding Jesus on her lap. I saw her from the back, a little to the side. I did not see her legs, but they were not on the side I saw.

I felt the deep love of Jesus to allow Himself to be a little baby so helpless in her arms, and I felt fear in the Heart of Mary. I felt the deep love between Their Hearts.

I have never had much revelation into this Sorrow, the Flight into Egypt.

I was told to note this here.

Anyone else in the Movement who could be with Fred in China, Indiana, before the Blessed Sacrament on December 17, 1998, would greatly please the Father.

Anyone who can spend time before the Blessed Sacrament praying for the above intentions, especially between the hours of 6:30 p.m.- 12:00 (midnight) on December 17, 1998, would greatly please the Father.

Question for married couples and those in other intimate relationships:

Q: How often can we go to Mass together each week? How does it make me feel to go to Mass with you?
