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.

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 more I dwell in His Heart since I joined Shepherds of Christ, the deeper my union has grown with God the Father. I experience the permeating action of the Holy Spirit more in me as I dwell in Mary's Heart. I thank God for this Movement and these revelations on this Feast of the Holy Trinity. I thank God for revealing the Father and the Holy Spirit more and more to me as my personal relationship with Jesus grew through the Blue Books and consecration and everything the Movement has done for me.

A little after 5:00 a.m. I was awakened with this writing.

There is a spirit of willfulness in the world and in the Church. Why be under anyone when you can be on top?

Power comes from God.

By the authority given from God the priest is to govern his flock, the parents to raise their children.

In the garden Eve didn't want to do God's will, she did her own will.

Genesis 2:16-17

Then Yahweh God gave the man this command, 'You are free to eat of all the trees in the garden. But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you are not to eat; for, the day you eat of that, you are doomed to die.'

Messenger: There are rules set down by the Church the priests and bishops must obey. Though they have authority in the Church, they are not the head. In the end the authority is under Christ. He is the Head.

1 Corinthians 15:20-28

In fact, however, Christ has been raised from the dead, as the first-fruits of all who have fallen asleep. As it was by one man that death came, so through one man has come the resurrection of the dead. Just as all die in Adam, so in Christ all will be brought to life; but all of them in their proper order: Christ the first-fruits, and next, at his coming, those who belong to him. After that will come the end, when he will hand over the kingdom to God the Father, having abolished every principality, every ruling force and power. For he is to be king until he has made his enemies his footstool, and the last of the enemies to be done away with is death, for he has put all things under his feet. But when it is said everything is subjected, this obviously cannot include the One who subjected everything to him. When everything has been subjected to him, then the Son himself will be subjected to the One who has subjected everything to him, so that God may be all in all.

Messenger: In order for the Sacred Heart of Jesus to reign on the earth as the Father intends, all must be under His feet.

Priests are under the rules of the Church.

Parents and children are under the 10 Commandments, His word, and the Church.

In a message given to Jacinta (Fatima visionary), it was said:

The Spirituality of Fatima and Medjugorje Book, P.18

Tell them to ask grace from her, and that the Heart of Jesus wishes to be venerated together with the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Messenger: Mary is the Mother of the Church.

The devil wants power. He attacks authority, he gets those in authority to act unlawfully.

Mary as Mother has authority over the Church.

Mary appeared at Fatima. She gave the following as the solution to peace in the world.

Mary, Queen of Peace


  1. Pray the daily rosary.
  2. Consecrate your hearts to my Heart and the Heart of my Son.
  3. Observe the First Saturday devotion.
  4. Make reparation to Our Hearts.

Messenger: Christ is Head of the Church.

Mary told Jacinta that Jesus wants Mary's Heart venerated next to His.

When Christ died He gave His Mother to John as his Mother.

John 19:26-27

Seeing his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing near her, Jesus said to his mother, 'Woman, this is your son.' Then to the disciple he said, 'This is your mother.' And from that hour the disciple took her into his home.

Messenger: From the pierced Heart of Christ hanging on the cross the Church was born. He gave Mary as Mother.

The devil has attacked authority.

There is one one will, the Father's will.

It is God's will that Mary is Mother, Queen of Peace. If Mary appears as Mother and tells us what to do to have peace and we ignore her, we are not living in His will. We will not operate properly.

There is only one will. If everyone was living in harmony according to God's will, there would not be a problem.

There was not a problem until Eve and Adam disobeyed God. They raised their heel against Him.

Mary as Mother is to keep her children in line under His feet.

Genesis 3:15

I shall put enmity
between you and the woman,
and between your offspring and hers;
it will bruise your head
and you will strike its heel.'

Messenger: Mary's task as Mother is to keep the children under Christ.

John 13:18

I am not speaking about all of you: I know the ones I have chosen; but what scripture says must be fulfilled:

'He who shares my table
takes advantage of me.

Messenger: The attack of the devil is to get the person to do exactly what Eve did, raise his heel against God.

What is interesting to note in Chapter 13 of John where Jesus speaks of the heel, is that Jesus is washing the Disciples' feet. Christ is the Head, but He washes their feet, their heels. He is Head and Servant.

So parents living according to God's will struggle with the willful children of the day. Children think many times that they do not need to obey. The 4th Commandment says, "Honor your father and your mother."

Children must be taught they are under God and under the authority of parents, but they are being raised in a world that is teaching them quite differently.

The spirit of willfulness, to be on the top, to have ultimate authority is one way the devil works to create disharmony amongst people. He tempts them to disobey, they give him their power, they do his work instead of obeying God's will.

The devil can work in this unlawful use of power.

Christ will not rule according to the Father's Plan and will not be properly recognized as Head of the Church and Head of the family if those in charge make themselves the head, not subject to Him and His Commandments and laws.

There is a spirit of willfulness of many underneath authority. They try to be on top. Many do not live by God's Commandments and His word.

In the end all authority will be under His feet.

Mary appears to the children, but many do not recognize Mary's authority as Mother. Once someone has power, once someone has had the final say, he does not wish to give all this away and yield to another over him. So what do we do if we recognize our fault of improper use of authority?

Here is the dilemma. Scripture says, 1 Corinthians 15, that all authority will be under His feet, but the spirit of the world is to disobey His Commandments and word.

Anyone who argues the Commandments can be interpreted to fit his life and the world has made himself over God.

The situation is similar to that of Adam and Eve.

Mary appears at Fatima and she tells us we must pray the rosary, consecrate our hearts, do the First Saturday Devotion, make reparation to Their Hearts.

Many clergy and people in the Church do not recognize Mary as having any authority over them.

Christ came into the world in the womb of Mary.

Mary is not head of the Church. Mary is Mother.

Christ died on the cross with Mary beneath. He made her our Mother.

In the litany we address Mary as Mother of divine grace.

The life of the Church flows through the pierced Heart of Christ hanging on the cross.

The Church is born from the pierced Heart of Christ hanging on the cross.

Mary holds His lifeless Body in her arms.

Christ is the New Adam.

Mary is the New Eve.

Christ was completely obedient to the Father to His death.

Mary was completely obedient to the Father. Fiat.

We see that tree in the garden, we see the weakness of the fallen human nature. ADAM AND EVE did their own will. They became at that point enslaved to the devil.

Christ comes, He hangs on that tree of life, a garden is near and a new tomb in which no one has been laid.

He must rule. He must have a fresh seat in which no one sat. He must be laid in a tomb that is new.

Luke 19:30

'Go to the village opposite, and as you enter it you will find a tethered colt that no one has ever yet ridden. Untie it and bring it here.

John 19:41

At the place where he had been crucified there was a garden, and in the garden a new tomb in which no one had yet been buried.

Messenger: He is the first-fruits.

He is the authority, the Head, all men are under Him.

Mary is Mother.

A mother has authority over her children. It is God's will. (4th Commandment)

If the authority in the Church does not recognize the strong rule of Mary as Mother, the children will not recognize her authority either.

This is God's will. Anytime we do not obey God's will we have a problem.

In Don Bosco's vision there are two pillars, one with Mary and a larger pillar with the Eucharist. There is a ship with the Pope steering it between the two pillars.

In the water we see many shipwrecked vessels.

The ship, the Church, must sail between the pillars of Christ as Head, truly present in the Eucharist, and Mary as Mother.

In the litany to Mary we refer to her as vessel three times.

It is God's will we realize our role as children of the Father and our heavenly Mother.

Mary is the spiritual Mother, she is the Mediatrix of grace.

What happens to an embryo when it is removed from the womb of the woman, the mother, and it is not ready to be born?

The very life of the fetus depends on the life that flows through the mother.

God the giver of all life, gives life to a baby. The mother sustains this life. The child cannot be removed from the womb too soon or it dies.

Mary appears and it is as if we do not see her. Her image stands in the world on one of the busiest corners and people zoom by and do not even take heed of her or her message.

After a century of apparitions, God grants this tremendous grace, this permanent sign given and we still ignore her.

We have lost our focus in the world that God has the plan and we are children under Him.

God is not pleased that the earth has ignored the Lady of Fatima. After the Fatima message secularism and materialism seem much worse. The focus seems to be on human reasoning, on man's advancements as achievements of his own as alienated from God. There is less and less real heartfelt love.

To have the Reign of the Sacred Heart on the earth, things must change to a state in which Christ is honored as Head of men's hearts and Head of their dwellings.

Colossians 2:9-10

Christ alone is the true head
of all humanity and the angels

In him, in bodily form, lives divinity in all its fullness, and in him you too find your own fulfilment, in the one who is the head of every sovereignty and ruling force.

Messenger: There is a structure concerning how the authority flows from God at the top to those below.

Authority flows according to the proper order in Church and family.

If the person at the top is consecrated to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, the Sacred Heart of Jesus will be King of his heart and reign in his heart. He will be more perfectly conformed to the will of God the deeper the consecration, and this will lead to the era of peace in which all men will live under His feet, living in the Father's will, with Christ the Head, the King and Center of their hearts.

  1. Individuals as heads, as people in authority, need to be consecrated to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary so they are doing God's will and there is one will in the house. (House here means a group of people under authority.)

  2. The structure of authority in that house must be such that the power flows from Him. It must be followed in the proper order.

This He calls a sandwich effect.

Many persons under the authority of another do not accept this authority and want to be higher in authority themselves. They are seeking power.

Example 1

A mother and father have authority over children.

One parent takes all authority and children receive second order.

Example 2

Christ is Head of the Church.

Power is given to the Pope.

A priest decides to make his own rules, sometimes because of the people, and disobeys the Magisterium of the Church.

Example 3

Mary is Mother of the Church.

In certain churches priests ignore Mary as if she is not a part of the Church and of how it functions.

Ephesians 5:21-24
The morals of the home

Be subject to one another out of reverence for Christ. Wives should be subject to their husbands as to the Lord, since, as Christ is head of the Church, and saves the whole body, so is a husband the head of his wife; and as the Church is subject to Christ, so should wives be to their husbands, in everything.

Ephesians 6:1-2

Children, be obedient to your parents in the Lord -- that is what uprightness demands. The first commandment that has a promise attached to it is: Honour your father and your mother,

Jesus speaks: This must be read. Please read this in the Bible. Ephesians 5:21-33, Ephesians 6:1-17. End with Ephesians 5:6-20.

Question for married couples and others in intimate relationships:

Q: How can I share negative feelings with you when we are suffering division.

Jesus speaks: My child, I could bear the suffering, I always knew the oneness with My Father. Many today stay isolated in suffering, hurting their mutual relationship with their significant other. Feelings must be shared to be properly one with another. To share only positive feelings is to share only a part of your heart. It is not to fully share yourself with another. A good part of the time you have tremendous problems because of the tendency of one or both to hide negative feelings and to hide suffering. I was one at all times with My Father. In My suffering He was united to Me. Although I experienced the feelings of isolation and deep pain in the garden, I was one with My heavenly Father. There is strength in sharing suffering. I made you to help one another and be one. One shares, one holds back, then you are not united in a way that will bring you greatest comfort and joy. You feel alone and isolated, you cannot understand why the other will never share when times are the most difficult and sharing is needed. You are silly, you walk a lonesome valley and your knees knock in pain. Many conflicts that could have been resolved in peace and love and strength become deep wounds because of the failure of one to open up and trust the other, because of the desire to be independent in suffering. I carried My cross for love of you. Yet you carry your cross and trip those you love and cause them pain.
