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.

                                            Our Lady of Grace

Mary speaks: My children, I appear to teach you how to pray.

Message of Oct. 13. 1917 - The Spirituality of Fatima and Medjugorje Book   Page16:

I am the Lady of the Rosary. I have come to warn the faithful to amend their lives and to ask pardon for their sins. They must not offend Our Lord any more, for He is already too grievously offended by the sins of men. People must say the Rosary. Let them continue saying it every day.     Sorrowful Mother Statue at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center     

Mary speaks: My children, I appear to teach you how to pray.

I am the handmaid of the Lord.

I give you the book Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary .

On December 17, 1996, I appeared on the building in rainbow color to match my Rosary Book and the Book of my Son: Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary .

December 24, 1994

Jesus speaks: My dear little child, please write up the meditations on the rosary. Ask Marty to help you and ask Harold to use his picture for the cover. You are to begin recounting your experiences daily. Start with the experiences from July 5, 1994. Include Fr. Carter's part in the rosary and Marty's part in the rosary. Write down the events you see daily, by date. Write down what you see. Include October 31, 1994 rosary. Marty is your partner in publishing the rosary book. You should list all you both see. Include the Christmas rosary. Begin by writing down your rosary meditations. All will become clear as you begin your rosary journal. Your time recounting these events will lead to a closer understanding of Our lives and Our intimacy with each other.

Mary speaks: Your union with My Son and the Father and the Holy Spirit will deepen as your understanding of the union between myself and Jesus grows. From this day forward you will be closely united to me, your Mother, and closely united to Jesus through the rosary. I want you to lead the rosary always. Always dim the lights and use candles. I will be there and Jesus will be there whenever you pray the rosary. We will be with you in a very special way. Your job is to promote the rosary. When you pray the rosary, tell them about my letters to them, centered around my Son in the Eucharist.

Always pray the rosary. Always center it in the Eucharist. Ask Marty and Fr. Carter to help you. This will be a powerful tool for bringing many to the rosary and to loving My Son in the Eucharist. I am Mary, your Mother, and that is My Christmas gift to all. Pray the rosary for us.

Mary speaks: My dear ones, I want pictures of the rosary and seven sorrows in the rosary book. I would like meditations on the seven sorrows. I would like the songs that could be used during the different mysteries of the rosary. I would like rosary meditations and certain messages that pertain to meditations on some mysteries. My rosary, prayed as I have instructed, will lead many hearts to Our Two Hearts. We are so closely united in the rosary. The rosary is the most beautiful prayer. Singing between the Hail Marys pleases me so much. Lift up your hearts. Pray the rosary with your whole heart and it will live in your day. I, your beloved mother, and my Son thank you for responding to my call.

Mary's Message from the Rosary of August 27, 1996

Mary: I stood beneath the cross of my Son, and my Heart was in such pain for I saw Him before my eyes. I saw Him covered with blood. I saw Him die. My Heart, my children, my Heart to watch my Son, but my Heart, my Heart, how I suffered for my little children of the world that give in to this world and give up the love of my Son. O my little children of light, I give you this message. Carry this light into the darkness for your Mother Mary, for I stood beneath the cross and I cried. I cried for the little ones. I cried for the young ones, the ones that do not care and will lose their souls. How do I make you see for you will not listen to me? What can I do? I come. I appear. I beg. I plead. I give you these gifts from my Son, and you reject me. I do not deliver messages very often anymore for I have been ignored. The message is the same. You do not read the messages I have given to you. Please help me. Help the little children. I appear. I appear. I appear, and I am ignored. I stood beneath the cross, and I cried. I cried, and my Heart was in such anguish for my little children, for I am searching for them this day as I searched for the Child Jesus. Please, please help me. I cannot hold back the hand of my Son any longer. I am Mary, your Mother. I ask you to help my children. You are my children of light.

Mary speaks: I am Mary, your Mother. I beg you to pray. Please help me in any way possible to get my Rosary Book for Parents and Children to schools and families and churches.

Funds are needed for the School Rosary Program.

My building in Clearwater, Florida, is my Rosary Factory. Send your rosaries to us there. Make rosaries for children. I wish rosaries from all over the world be sent there for distribution. Call or write to get rosaries free of charge for schools, for girl scouts, for religious groups, especially for children.

Call for rosary kits which are made available for youth to make rosaries for my Rosary Factory.

I beg you to pray the rosary this month.

Organization of the Rosary

Strictly speaking, a rosary is a litany of Aves, wave after wave , decades, of Hail Marys directed at Our Lady, begging her intercession on our behalf with God the Father, her Son Jesus and the Holy Spirit. However, the rosary format shown here has been the accepted standard for hundreds of years, with the exception of the O My Jesus, or Fatima, prayer which has been added in this century. Most of the individual prayers are ancient indeed, reflecting the glory of the Church from as far back as Our Lord (the Our Father), the Gospels (the Hail Mary) and the Middle Ages (the Holy Mary). Truly a revered and comfortable prayer!

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen

The Apostles Creed

I believe in God the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended into hell; the third day he arose again from the dead; he ascended into heaven; sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the living and the dead. * I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Catholic Church, the communion of Saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.

Our Father

Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. * Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. Amen.

Hail Mary

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the Fruit of thy womb, Jesus. * Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

Glory Be

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. * As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

O My Jesus

O My Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell and lead all souls to heaven, especially those who are in most need of Thy mercy.

Hail Holy Queen

Hail, holy Queen, Mother of mercy, our life, our sweetness and our hope. To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve. To thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this valley of tears. Turn then, most gracious advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us. And after this, our exile, show unto us the blessed Fruit of thy womb, Jesus, O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.

V. Pray for us, O holy Mother of God.
R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

Let us pray. O God, whose only begotten Son, by His life, death, and resurrection has purchased for us the rewards of eternal life; grant, we beseech Thee, that meditating upon these mysteries of the most Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary, we may imitate what they contain and obtain what they promise, through the same Christ Our Lord. Amen.

Note: When the rosary is said aloud by two or more persons, one person is the leader. He says the first part of the prayer (up to the asterisk *). Everyone else answers by saying the remainder of the prayer. The O My Jesus and the Hail, Holy Queen are said by all together.

Mary speaks: (Click on) for the School Rosary Program.

My beloved school teachers, act out a live rosary for your Christmas play.

Use the joyful rosary meditations of either book.

Have your children pray the rosary before the audience acting out the meditations and dressing up for the parts, singing songs.

Perform this before the school body.

Little children, act out the rosary at home as a Christmas gift to Jesus and your family.

Please my children, give the gift to me of helping me circulate my rosary this Christmas.

Funding is needed to publish my Rosary Books and buy my Image Building in Florida.

Look at the gift your Father gives you.

This is my permanent image. My Son has given Himself to you on the cross.

The Father has given you this sign.

Please, my children, give Rosary Books and rosaries as Christmas presents to the world, and also rosary aves and consecration cards.

Give the gift of the rosary to schools. The Shepherds of Christ provides rosary materials and rosaries free to all.

Will you help me 82 years later after Fatima spread my rosary devotion to the world? Do you want peace? I told you at Fatima you must pray the rosary.

My children, help me.

Make this your gift to Mary and Jesus at Christmas.

It will be 3 years ago this Christmas that I appeared for you.

It is 82 years since Fatima.

Please give this as a gift to God and to your Mother.

Help promote the rosary.

April 9, 1995 - Priests Would Lead the Rosary

Jesus speaks: I want My beloved priests to pray the rosary and use these meditations. The peoples’ hearts will be brought back to My Heart and My Mother’s Heart. These are rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. This is a powerful tool to spread the devotion to the rosary across this land. People can lead the rosary in prayer groups. Make the shorter meditations into large print for Nursing Homes. Make some meditations into large print for the sick who have all day to pray. It is only through the power of prayer that Satan will be stopped. Praying the rosary will crush the head of Satan. You are given these rosary meditations as a powerful tool to crush the head of Satan and to bring the hearts of all to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. They are focused on the Eucharist and the Mass and will lead many to the Catholic Church.

I am giving all who promote the spread of these messages great graces and guiding them as they do. Teams can be started to go out and pray the rosary this way. Make recordings for the blind and the old.

I am Jesus. Please comply to My request.

Messenger: Jesus told me that when praying the 6:20 prayers we should pray for Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center.

A Prayer of Thanksgiving from Apostles' Manual

A Prayer of Thanksgiving
     (To be recited daily at the end of the day)

O God, on behalf of Shepherds of Christ Ministries and Our Lady of Light Ministry, we offer up these prayers of thanksgiving:

Thank You Father for Your love, patience, and understanding. We know we are not worthy of such gifts, but that You give them anyway - because of Your great love for souls.

Thank You Jesus for the many gifts and graces You give us as members of Your Movement - Shepherds of Christ. We offer You our love and gratitude through Your Mother's Immaculate Heart.

Thank You Holy Spirit for Your special gifts. Please inspire us to be grateful for what we have been given. Please help us to give ourselves in love to You and all we meet.

Thank You Holy Trinity for Your boundless love and mercy. Please help us to nurture Your presence within us. Help us to be obedient to Your commands and give all the glory to You - Our loving God. We especially thank You for the gift of our Heavenly Mother, Mary.

Thank you Mary for your example while on earth, and for your constant intercession today. Please help us to grow in holiness and put into action all that your Son Jesus asks of us.

We thank St. Michael and the Holy Angels for their prayers, help, and protection. Finally, we thank the saints in heaven and the souls in purgatory for their prayers. We ask them to unite with us in giving thanks and praise to the most Holy Trinity - Our Heavenly Father, Our Lord Jesus, and our Comforter- the Holy Spirit.

We love You! We love You! We love You! Amen.

Question for married couples and others in intimate relationships:

Q: How do I feel Mary as Mother and woman adds feelings of tender love to our relationship, the more I grow in a love relationship with her?
