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.

January 1, 1999

Messenger: There was a story and it went something like this. A woman was preparing a meal and she was having a ham. She cut off both ends of the ham before she put it in the oven. Her husband asked her why she did that. She said she didn't know. She just said her mother did it. Asking her mother why, she remarked her mother had cut off the ends because the ham didn't fit in her pan.

We have children that have learned how to relate from generations past. We do not know why we have been taught certain things. We have been taught many things that made sense to our ancestors and we have learned to adapt to these things.

A woman reports how her dad became very angered when anyone left lights on in the house where no one was present. He would become enraged and hollered at the children as if they had committed a crime. The woman married. It was an unspoken rule that the lights be turned out all over the house and she would go to any extent to enforce this. Her husband, on the other hand, was very strong-willed and an angry man. He wanted the lights on all over the house. Having learned the unspoken rules in her past, she trembled when the lights were left on. She was faced with a new dilemma, a new angry man that wished just the opposite and was angered when she turned them out.

How many unspoken rules learned as little children do we carry out without any thought or direction simply because they were drilled into us as children living under our parents' roof?

Within each soul is a center of truth, but parents from the time of Adam and Eve have taught us their ways whether right or wrong.

God gives to each child a conscience, but by force and example many lessons are taught that cause us great difficulty.

Because of the way we were given such lessons, through a process of living we come to believe that what we were taught as truth is truth, many times acting subconsciously without reason to enforce the unspoken rules taught from generation to generation in a family.

When persons engage in intimate relationships, the unspoken rules of the past often clash, and the problem arises.

Unspoken rules may range from innocent little gestures that really have no effect on one's life to teaching children to handle problems through alcohol, sex, overeating, etc.

In many families problems were not discussed, feelings were never expressed, and children were taught to be suspicious and not to trust others.

In many families when "normal" children were taught how to love and get along, some families were busy teaching a child very sick rules, how not to get along, how to make daddy king, how to live in fear, how to stuff feelings and not to discuss problems and never arrive at a solution lovingly.

We all grew up in families in which good and bad lessons were passed on to us. We learned the lessons well because in order to live in that family and survive we had to obey the rules.

I would like to quote Genesis. After Adam and Eve had sinned it says:

Genesis 3:7

Then the eyes of both of them were opened and they realised that they were naked. So they sewed fig-leaves together to make themselves loin-cloths.

Genesis 3:22

Then Yahweh God said, 'Now that the man has become like one of us in knowing good from evil, he must not be allowed to reach out his hand and pick from the tree of life too, and eat and live for ever!'

Messenger: Adam and Eve were given such gifts and they sinned, they did their own will and God banished them from the garden.

On the television and in the world today, evil is shown in graphic detail. In watching sin on the television screens and doing evil things in games, one sees and hears evil things.

Our young are being taught graphically that it is all right to engage in sexual intercourse outside of marriage. In fact, it is taught in such a way to lure the young into such activity. Other children encourage other children to do wrong because of what they are taught.

I am very saddened in my heart, for I know the dissatisfaction of Our God because as a nation and as a world we so often fail to obey the Ten Commandments. We are not allowed to lure others into sin by graphic magazines and movies, etc.

I am sick that we have become so numbed to evil. We are to help to teach the truth to the young, not put out things that teach them about the evil that exists to harden them regarding it.

It seems to me to be backward.

So many years after Moses we still worship the molten calf. Our Sundays are not days set aside to honor God.

We can barely obtain the funds to spread the material He wishes the world to have.

Our Lady is real. She stood beneath the cross of Jesus and she wailed aloud in pain for the children that will be lost. She appeared to me over 500 times. You may choose not to believe me because you do not wish to change or help me. I can watch the Fatima documentary with Ricardo Montalban and cry because I SAW HER, with TEARS. She lamented and cried out for her children going to hell. We have been blocked at every turn as we try to deliver the message about the children praying the rosary and making the act of consecration.

Whether you listen to me or not is not the issue. She appears on that building in Florida and God is going to do what He is going to do because of the sins of men.

The more people we reach, the more souls will go to heaven.

He gave His life on the cross because of His desire to save souls.

I ask you to show a picture of Mary on the window and the crucifix.

I plead and I beg on this Feast of Mary for the sake of souls, that you help me to reach the schools, the Church and the world with the message we give here.

Please pray the prayers in the Shepherds of Christ Prayer Manual and the rosary and help us reach the world with the consecration card and the new Rosary Book: Rosary Meditations for Parents and Children. All of this has the imprimatur. The priests need to consecrate their hearts.

The world needs to consecrate their hearts.

We need to reach the priests with the priestly newsletter.

Mary showed 3 little children a vision of hell July 13, 1917.

Pages 14-15 from The Spirituality of Fatima and Medjugorje book:

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)

Messenger: I deliver a message that is not new. It was delivered by Our Lady at Fatima.

Our Lord began on October 13, 1996, speaking of the completion of the Fatima mission about two months before Mary appeared on the building in Florida.

He asked us to spread the priestly newsletter to the priests and the bishops and to pray the prayers in the prayer manual and do as Mary says.

Today is January 1, 1999. We are coming close to the end of the 20th Century.

Almost 2000 years ago Our Lord came and walked this earth. The Almighty God gave Himself to His death on the cross for the sake of His precious souls.

What makes you think He would not go to any extent to try to save them today?

He is with us, truly present in the Eucharist.

The Sacred Heart of Jesus will reign and the Immaculate Heart of Mary will triumph.

It is up to us to help to save souls. The more we reach, the more we will help to be saved.

Our Lady appears on the building in Florida, "Our Lady of Clearwater in the Americas"

The question is, "Will you help us?" Or will you say someone else can help the world.

In Baptism we are commissioned to be apostles and to reach the world.

Our Lady is calling you today.

Our Lord hangs from the cross in Florida.

Will you help me to reach the Church and the world with the prayers and the consecration?

Will you pray for the souls?

My heart is filled with the emotion of Their two Hearts from the experiences I have had.

I saw Mary appear more than 500 times crying out.

She said she didn't appear as she once did.

Jesus appeared dying on the cross December 5, 1996.

Mary appeared on the building visible to us on December 17, 1996.

I saw Him dying on the cross, I saw her appear before me.

I cry, I cry, I have not seen her in so long. The memory of Jesus on the cross at the point of death and transfigured before me in Holy Cross-Immaculata Church haunts my heart and soul.

I want to scream and cry out, "Listen to me. Please listen, I cry inside."

Watch the documentary on Fatima with Ricardo Montalban.

See Mary appear to the three children at Fatima, then see the bodies being thrown into heaps in World War II.

I cried, I saw her. I see the evil, I know what he says will happen if we don't listen.

Watch the movie with Moses-- The Prince of Egypt. God is all powerful and almighty. He can divide the Red Sea.

He gives us a free will and He wants our love and our will freely given to Him.

Do we obey the Commandments?

Or are we like Eve doing her own will in the garden?

Have we learned the lesson from the garden of Eden?

Heaven is a reward for those who love and serve the Lord.

Eternity is forever.

This is not our end.

We are here preparing ourselves for another life. The lesson is that of the garden. Have we learned it? We must do the will of God. WILL YOU HELP ME?

There is no message today.

Mary and Jesus guided me, a messenger from God, to deliver this writing to you.

I love you, the Messenger.

It says in a message May 13, 1993 (Blue Book I), from Jesus and I quote:

"My dear child, if you stay close to Me, then I live in you and you live in Me. I am He Who created you and I love you with such an intensity that you will never know. My words are your truth. You must abide in My Heart in all things. There is no room for doubt. My ways are steadfast, direct, and without error.

You must stay rooted in Me to ward off the power of the evil one. His grip is paralyzing and crippling. His power is stronger every day.

When you live in Me, I am in your heart and he has no power over Me. I am your God. I am your true lover. I want to protect you. I want to guard you from this force. Stay rooted firmly in Me and he will have no power.

"Let My People Go."

The Book of Revelation says:

Revelation 21:3

Then I heard a loud voice call from the throne, 'Look, here God lives among human beings. He will make his home among them; they will be his people, and he will be their God, God-with-them.

Messenger: This indeed is an evil age, Our Lord says.

The Father says:

"I tell you all to read the accounts concerning Noah. Nowhere in history has God been offended as He is this day by this sinful world. You will suffer a fate for the offenses against God.

Mary appeared at Fatima to warn you, the sinful children, how they were offending God, but you did not listen. The war did not change the hearts of many evil men."

"Let My People Go."

For we are being held captive by the media, the papers and the televisions, some teachers that teach that it is permissible do some evil things.

We need to live by the word of God and obey the 10 Commandments.

He is the Creator, we are the creatures, we cannot ignore Him.

If we think we have all the power, we only need to ask ourselves who controls our breath.

Who makes the baby in the womb, can man create one?

Where does the cry come from?

We depend on God's grace, my brothers.

Did you see Moses in the movie, The Prince of Egypt? He looked as if he would not be able to do anything, but because of the might of the all powerful God, the Hebrews were set free.

He shed the life-saving Blood that man would be saved.

Today He gives us the Eucharist. He gives us His Body and Blood. He gives us His life.

He is the Bread of Life.

They could not eat of the forbidden tree in the garden.

Today He gives us His life in the Eucharist.

In Moses' time, the Hebrews spread the blood of the lamb on the door posts and all the first-born were not killed.

Today He gives us His Blood, the Blood of the Savior and He is ignored by many.

Do we want to win? Do we want peace and love?

We must obey the Creator.

How can we fight the evil forces against us? We can do so only with the help of His grace.

Watch Moses in the movie, see him there. He looks helpless, but God works through him and we know His might.

God is mightier than man.

Jesus shed the life-saving Blood to save us from our sins.

Jesus appears to me at the point of death on the cross, His mouth moving because no one is listening, He would say later.

He is the Good Shepherd. He tells us we must pray. He tells us we must pray for the Church and the world. We need His grace  to fight the battle against the evil one.

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.

Messenger: Mary appears on the building, Our Lady Clothed with the Sun and we ignore her.

Genesis 3:15 will bruise your head
and you will strike its heel.'

Messenger: If we want peace, we must do what Mary says.

She is the Queen of Peace.

She will crush the head of the serpent, the evil one.

It is the devil we fight. We need His grace to combat the devil.

WE MUST PRAY if we want our children to have a better life.

God is Almighty. He shed the life-saving Blood. He is the Savior. His grace will help us fight the battle against the evil one.

The more priests celebrate the Mass with consecrated hearts, the purer the sacrifice and the more grace will be released.

The Last Vision of Fatima

We must pray the prayers as the Good Shepherd has told us, get the priestly newsletter into the hands of the priests, pray the rosary and consecrate our hearts as Our Lady of Fatima said, observe the First Saturday Devotion and make reparation to Their Hearts.

Will you help us? Will you begin prayer chapters and help us to pray for the Church and the world? Will you help us get the rosary and consecration to the school children? Will you help us circulate the priestly newsletter book with the imprimatur and the Children's Rosary Book with the imprimatur?

Will you help us?

Revelation 12:10-12

Then I heard a voice shout from heaven, 'Salvation and power and empire for ever have been won by our God, and all authority for his Christ, now that the accuser, who accused our brothers day and night before our God, has been brought down. They have triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word to which they bore witness, because even in the face of death they did not cling to life. So let the heavens rejoice and all who live there; but for you, earth and sea, disaster is coming--because the devil has gone down to you in a rage, knowing that he has little time left.'

Prayer to St. Michael

"St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, O prince of the heavenly hosts, by the power of God, cast into hell Satan and all the other evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen."

Messenger: Our Lord and Our Lady said They want this writing circulated to as many people as possible.

Question for married couples and others in intimate relationships:

Q: How do I feel when we stop hourly and pray, even if only for a few moments?
