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: Include Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center in 6:20 prayers.

Messenger: I stalk this barren land looking for oneness. Oh, to be embraced by a heavenly embrace, to know the glories of heaven and to experience and live in this world that does not know this oneness, yet is so complacent to search more and harder for vain glories of the earth.

It is almost 10:00 p.m. and I write from a hospital chapel. The guard just came by throwing the doors open and told me that a camera watches this chapel.

I crave so much to be alone with Jesus, I wanted so intently for someone to understand me.

All of these revelations have been revealed to me in the feeling part of my heart, I experience Him deep in my soul. I cry in anguishing pain because I crave the deep experiences I have had and my heart is like a desert land, for people do not connect in the truly, holy love He desires. They are standoffish and stiff.

Some do not understand feelings.

I long for the priest that stands before me and tells those in the church how much he adores Jesus, and wants deeper and deeper union with Him, who knows the embrace of the Divine God because he has seen the glories of heaven.

The experiences I have had with a dying Jesus on the cross is nothing like I hear about in church. I saw Him, I was in horrifying pain to watch Him move His mouth, I hurt so bad inside to see Him on the cross that way. The sight I saw is implanted in every cell in my body, together with the way I felt, the anguish, the reality of Christ almost dead on the cross and the labor He went through in that condition to try to speak.

I feel this labor, for I deliver His words to ones who do not hear. The words He delivers falls on deaf ears, and they persecute me for speaking.

I have seen Him transfigured before my face, in tears of joy and wanting only to love Him deeper and deeper and crying to the Holy Spirit for this. He was transfigured before me. I thought it was 3 times, when checking my notebook it was 4 times. What I write I write from memory. I remember dates, times and the experiences as if they just happened.

It is so hard for me to have all the memories of the apparitions of Mary and the pain and joy I have undergone and not be able to deliver the message. Nor do I see her very often anymore.

I spend much time at Mass and in prayer, but so much of my efforts now are spent in receiving these messages for the world, and in writing more about community life as He desires it to be. I go through very many experiences to be able to receive and deliver the message.

The message I wish to deliver today is this. My heart cries out for the pain I feel to not have this intense oneness I know from having these experiences of heavenly bliss. Oh the rapture, the beauty of an aura of heavenly grace as I have seen and the uncontrollable aspect I experience as He gives. If today He wishes to give me great suffering to identify with Him in His Heart that suffered so for the souls He loved so much when He walked this earth, He will allow me to suffer such intensity of having Him in such oneness and knowing Him and feeling as if I could sweat blood, knowing the souls and how they are being lost despite His great gifts, especially the gift of Himself given on the cross and given today in the Eucharist.

I scream inside. I wanted God to do something and I pleaded and begged on the floor of that Sorrowful Mother Chapel August 12, 1996, when Mary appeared all night. August 13, 1996, she appeared again in the morning and again before the prayer meeting at Tom's farm. A kind of silence of Mary in the rosaries now turned into a message August 13, 1996, when she said she was giving a message she never gave before.

On August 27, 1996, she delivered Mary's Message on Tom's farm.

And when she said she did not appear as she once appeared, she did deliver a message to the world she never delivered before when she appeared on the building in Clearwater, Florida.

But again, this great gift we have received is ignored by the busy world.

Oh God, I feel, I cry out delivering the rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary and the world, and even many in the Church do not understand the emotion, the burning fire, the desire that Jesus has to be loved and worshipped and honored.

I feel speechless.

For the way He has delivered these message to me is deep in my heart in feelings and knowing through experiences, and yet I do not hear of any of this in church. And now even the simple rosaries for the young and old, the consecration for the homes, the Mass Book, all sit waiting for the Imprimatur.

Why did Christ appear on the cross to me, a woman? Why did Christ appear to me, a mother, that nursed babies and raised four children?

I raised my children from 1970 until now, and I am still a mother. My life was spent in teaching my children and at night teaching college math. For many years I taught piano in my home and I was an organist and conducted a choir in a small church.

I knew no theology, I only loved Jesus. In all my years in church, I have not been taught about the feeling Heart of Jesus.

When He began telling me about His burning love, and the first Blue Book was published, people tried to do all they could to get it off the shelves of the bookstores. People spent so much energy doing all they could to block Jesus' tender love letters. Can you imagine how the Heart of Jesus felt in the garden, when he knew some day He would open His Heart raw, give the pulsating sun in a video over the tabernacle, allow the corner of the building where He delivered messages to fall off in a second, allow the town of Falmouth, Kentucky, to flood where Mary appeared 22 times, and then after His Mother appears almost 500 times and she then appears on the building in Clearwater, Florida, as a sign, they still do not listen?

Jesus speaks: Oh, My world, you have been chastised by your own hand for ignoring the Lady at Fatima. Men have looked on themselves as gods as never before in the history of the world. They are pompous and self-serving. You have made your minds your gods. You pride yourselves on the accomplishments of your computers, but, my men, many times you do not use them to serve God. Many have been used to impregnate the young with evil.

I watch you, oh My men, I do watch you massacre My little babies' minds. The chastisement after Fatima was not so much the devastation and deaths as much as it was the deterioration of the hearts of men, who grew in selfish pride, making themselves gods.

I cry out to you to support My Movement, Shepherds of Christ. There is so much money in the world, and yet you won't support this group trying to get people to pray for the priests, the Church and the world despite the fact that the Virgin Mary's image on the building is a sign which, among other things, points to the fact that Shepherds of Christ is My Movement.

Oh My world, your money is your god or you would have heard My Mother's message 3 years ago.

Your senseless talk is about actors and actresses and football heroes you promote. I will wipe the silly grins off your faces, for you smite Me.

I am so offended by your attitude.

I beg you to listen to Me.

Anyone who has followed these messages would know no one could have given this body of knowledge to the world but God. A nursing mother, a math professor, one, who in 1992, did not even know the books of the Bible, could not have given this body of knowledge on her own. Ask the Cornerstone Prayer Group. They had to teach her about where the books of the Bible were.

Oh you senseless men! I am the One, with My feeling Heart, Whom you ignore! You do not feel My great mysteries inside of your hearts. You only try to analyze My word in your heads. You do not expand, for you will not listen to Me.

I choose to come as I choose to come. I came in the womb of a Woman. Many men have problems with this. They want to be on the top and not bow to any woman. Oh your foolish pride, little men. I can wipe you off the earth in a breath, as at the time of Noah.

What of the mudslide in Venezuela?

Oh, do you know that you do not control your lives?

Oh, I feel sorry for you and your prideful ways.

You don't feel with your hearts, you only think with your heads and some don't feel at all.

Meditating on the mysteries of the rosary is to be done by experiencing My Life in your hearts, feeling Our feelings, identifying with Our Lives. Oh, so many do not even know the mysteries of the rosary.

My Mother's building in Florida is to be a rosary factory.

Oh, I am sick of your ways. You think you know it all and you do it the same way as did so many before you, but you have gotten much worse.

Oh, what is the use to warn pompous men! They do not see the stars in the sky and the inclement weather. They see only their world and their own limited ways.

I am God and I have veiled Myself from you. I reveal Myself as I see fit. You won't find Me in your books and your heads unless I give you the grace. I reveal Myself as I see fit.

In a million years you cannot fathom what I can reveal in a soul in less than a breath, a batting of the eye.

Seek out your books and your fancy discourse. You miss the feeling Heart of the Sacred Heart and the story of the lives of Jesus and Mary.

Oh, My priests, many of you don't even pray the rosary!

The Queen of Peace speaks, the priests do not hear her. She says to pray the rosary.

She appears on the building in Florida, you do not see her.

And you do not hear My voice or the voice of My Father. You persecute the messenger because of your foolish pride.

You have wounded My Heart.

I sweat Blood for how I have been treated by some of My priests and My world this day.

What other message could I send you?

Mary appears on the building and it is not sign enough for you!

Take the mud out of your eyes.

I am sick of your attitude.

3 years later and your god is still your money.

Your children are dying in their souls and I will allow this. Your youth will become more corrupt unless people pray. Why should I give you more priests that move My tabernacle and persecute the ones who try to be holy?

Why should I give you more priests who will not pray as I have requested?

You come to the close of this year 1999. I have given messages to the earth through this messenger since 1991. My Heart burns, but you have done everything you could to block Its flames from reaching My loved ones.

What unfaithful spouses so many of you in My beloved Church are. You have made everything else your spouse but Me. Nobody even talks to the people about being the bride of Christ or the spouse of the Lamb. Who tells them I am the Bridegroom of your souls?

You have made yourselves your gods. You are married to all kinds of things and it isn't to Me.

My Church is My bride.

Are you bringing forth fruit for the Kingdom as you should?

Why don't the youth flock to church to be fed?

Why don't the people love the Eucharist?

Why don't people spend time praying before the tabernacle?

If the world went into darkness, if you lost your homes as those in Venezuela, if you suffer as those around Medjugorje have, would you then listen?

I give you the Lady on the building, you do not notice.

I give you my Blue Book messages, My Mass Book. There is not money to print them.

I give you the priestly newsletter. There was not money to print and send the 6th newsletter of this year.

I am fed up with the way you have persecuted Me, the messengers and My Movement.

I extend My hands and I am pleading.

I give you My prayers (Shepherds of Christ Prayer Manual).

You are My Body, the brides of Christ.

Oh, those with teaching authority in My Church, how many of you are teaching men to be spouses of the Lamb?

Revelation 21:1-4

Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; the first heaven and the first earth had disappeared now, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride dressed for her husband. 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. He will wipe away all tears from their eyes; there will be no more death, and no more mourning or sadness or pain. The world of the past has gone.'


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.

The Imprimatur below is for the Prayer for Union with Jesus and not the message above or below.

Prayer for Union with Jesus

Come to me, Lord, and possess my soul. Come into my heart and permeate my soul. Help me to sit in silence with You and let You work in my heart.

I am Yours to possess. I am Yours to use. I want to be selfless and only exist in You. Help me to spoon out all that is me and be an empty vessel ready to be filled by You. Help me to die to myself and live only for You. Use me as You will. Let me never draw my attention back to myself. I only want to operate as You do, dwelling within me.

I am Yours, Lord. I want to have my life in You. I want to do the will of the Father. Give me the strength to put aside the world and let You operate my very being. Help me to act as You desire. Strengthen me against the distractions of the devil to take me from Your work.

When I worry, I have taken my focus off of You and placed it on myself. Help me not to give in to the promptings of others to change what in my heart You are making very clear to me. I worship You, I adore You and I love You. Come and dwell in me now.

-God's Blue Book, January 17, 1994
