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.

Jesus speaks: You began the 108 Day Novena in February after I gave the direction February 23, 1999, at 5:00 a.m. to do so.

Today ends the second 108 Day Novena.

Tomorrow is the Feast of the Archangels --Gabriel, Raphael and Michael.

You are at war.

Your world has changed because of your prayers.

At the end of the first 108 Day Novena, the troops withdrew from Yugoslavia.

You are affecting the world.

You must realize the power of your prayer for the priests, the Church and the world.

The world is changing.

More must pray as I have directed.

Spread My prayers to the world.

Today I have given you a great grace for the world. Continue to pray. Include at the end the Jiffy Sheet for next 108 days.

I am Jesus, I love you.

Ezekiel 34:11-16

"For the Lord Yahweh says this: Look, I myself shall take care of my flock and look after it. As a shepherd looks after his flock when he is with his scattered sheep, so shall I look after my sheep. I shall rescue them from wherever they have been scattered on the day of clouds and darkness. I shall bring them back from the peoples where they are; I shall gather them back from the countries and bring them back to their own land. I shall pasture them on the mountains of Israel, in the ravines and in all the inhabited parts of the country. I shall feed them in good pasturage; the highest mountains of Israel will be their grazing ground. There they will rest in good grazing grounds; they will browse in rich pastures on the mountains of Israel. I myself shall pasture my sheep, I myself shall give them rest - declares the Lord Yahweh. I shall look for the lost one, bring back the stray, bandage the injured and make the sick strong. I shall watch over the fat and healthy. I shall be a true shepherd to them.

Psalms 23:1-3, 3-4, 5-6
The good Shepherd

Yahweh is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
In grassy meadows he lets me lie.

By tranquil streams he leads me
  to restore my spirit.
He guides me in paths of saving justice
  as befits his name.

Even were I to walk in a ravine as dark as death
I should fear no danger, for you are at my side.
Your staff and your crook are there to soothe me.

You prepare a table for me
  under the eyes of my enemies;
you anoint my head with oil;
  my cup brims over.

Kindness and faithful love pursue me
  every day of my life.
I make my home in the house of Yahweh
  for all time to come.

September 28, 1999 - End of Second 108 Day Novena

Messenger: He came and He died for all.

We must be connected to all, all the time.

If we love like Him, we are not divided with anyone. He shed His Blood for all. There are no victims.

To have even one victim is to be divided. We do not have to like what they do, but we have to love them as He did to His death.

Jesus speaks: The devil is trying to divide you from those you must work with. You must bind your stubborn hearts if you love Me and do God's will.

How will My work get done?

Don't see yourself as over anyone, be as the Father wills, handmaids of the Lord.

Every relationship is to be lived according to His will.

You are the body of Christ. You stay connected as one. My Life flows through the body.

John 15:1-8

I am the true vine,
and my Father is the vinedresser.
Every branch in me that bears no fruit
he cuts away,
and every branch that does bear fruit
he prunes
to make it bear even more.
You are clean already,
by means of the word
that I have spoken to you.
Remain in me, as I in you.
As a branch cannot bear fruit all by itself,
unless it remains part of the vine,
neither can you unless you remain in me.
I am the vine,
you are the branches.
Whoever remains in me, with me in him,
bears fruit in plenty;
for cut off from me you can do nothing.
Anyone who does not remain in me
is thrown away like a branch
--and withers;
these branches are collected
and thrown on the fire
and are burnt.
If you remain in me
and my words remain in you,
you may ask for whatever you please
and you will get it.
It is to the glory of my Father
that you should bear much fruit
and be my disciples.

Jesus speaks: What happens to the branch that disconnects? It withers and dies.

The more you stay united and stay one in Me, and the more you realize your connectedness and pray in the Morning Offering to be united in your offering of yourselves daily united to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, the stronger will be your intercessory prayer.

Many see themselves just in terms of their own lives, or their families, or their Church, or their communities.

You are one. You are part of the whole human race, the family of the Father. In the Morning Offering you lay down your lives for all men. You pray for the souls in purgatory, and all men I gave My Life for.

The Church is that saving grace to the world, that body, one in Me united as a mighty force, one in the Sacrifice of Calvary sacramentally made present in the Mass.

The Shepherds of Christ is My Movement to strengthen this body so that it will live more and more in a deeper union in Me.

From the Litany to the Blessed Virgin it says, "Gate of heaven".

From the Litany to the Sacred Heart it says, "Heart of Jesus, house of God and gate of heaven".

My children, children of the Father, the treasures are found in My Sacred Heart. The sick and the lame mull around outside the gate and do not realize that the treasures are within. I give you My prayers in the Shepherds of Christ Prayer Manual to lead you to these riches. You pray for the priests, the renewal of the Church and the world. In the Holy Spirit Novena you unite as one body in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Identify with Me in the Sacrifice of Calvary. I knew each soul by name. I died for them.

You are the body of Christ, you stand united.

My shepherds will help lead the flock into oneness.

My shepherds are leading them home, through the gate, through the consecration.

In this way the strayed ones will be led home to the Heart of Christ.

What does it say in the Litany to the Sacred Heart?

"Heart of Jesus, house of God and gate of heaven."

"Heart of Jesus, sacred temple of God."

The Finding in the Temple; it is My Heart, wherein is found the fountain of life, this Heart which was pierced for love of you. And so you consecrate yourselves to My Sacred Heart in My prayers, from the Consecration:

"Lord Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the flock, I consecrate myself to Your most Sacred Heart. From Your pierced Heart the Church was born, the Church You have called me, as a member of Shepherds of Christ Associates, to serve in a most special way. You reveal Your Heart as a symbol of Your love in all its aspects, including Your most special love for me, whom You have chosen as Your companion in this most important work. Help me to always love You in return. Help me to give myself entirely to You. Help me always to pour out my life in love of God and neighbor! Heart of Jesus, I place my trust in You!

Jesus speaks: Include here the Act of Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary

"Dear Blessed Virgin Mary, I consecrate myself to your maternal and Immaculate Heart, this Heart which is symbol of your life of love. You are the Mother of my Savior. You are also my Mother. You love me with a most special love as a member of Shepherds of Christ Associates, a movement created by your Son as a powerful instrument for the renewal of the Church and the world. In a return of love, I give myself entirely to your motherly love and protection. You followed Jesus perfectly. You are His first and perfect disciple. Teach me to imitate you in the putting on of Christ. Be my motherly intercessor so that, through your Immaculate Heart, I may be guided to an ever closer union with the pierced Heart of Jesus, Chief Shepherd of the flock."

Jesus speaks: From the Litany:

"Heart of Jesus, sacred temple of God."

"Heart of Jesus, house of God and gate of heaven."

Jesus speaks: The 13th promise I made to Father Carter on July 31, 1994, is this:

"I am calling many to become members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. To all of them I will give great blessings. I will use them as instruments to help bring about the triumph of the Immaculate Heart and the reign of My Sacred Heart. I will give great graces to the members of Shepherds of Christ Associates. I will call them to be deeply united to My Heart and to Mary's Heart as I lead them ever closer to My Father in the Holy Spirit."

God's Blue Book I Cover

Excerpt from May 13, 1993, Blue Book I. Given leaving Conyers, Georgia

  1. (Jesus wished this be the first message in Blue Book I dated May 13, 1993 given leaving Conyers, Georgia.)

Jesus speaks: My dear child, if you stay close to Me, then I live in you and you live in Me."

Jesus speaks: A century of Marian Apparitions. When My messenger left Conyers, Georgia, I gave her the following message. As she drove away she dictated it to her 14 year old daughter. Here is the first message in the writing of that child. The story will follow later.

Cling to Me

God's Blue Book I Cover

May 13, 1993 

Jesus speaks: 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.

I am He Who comforts you. My hand is upon you. Hold tight to Me, My child. My eyes are fixed right on you. You are My most precious child. I love you as no other can. My arms are about you. My tenderness surrounds you. My love is in your heart. You go not alone. I walk with you.

I share every aspect of your life with you. Cling to Me, feel My presence. It is warm and secure within your chest. There is no room for fear, for I cast out fear and bring you comfort and joy.

Jesus speaks: Notice the difference between Mary's messages at Medjugorje and Fatima and the first message I wished recorded in My Blue Book.

Notice the difference between Mary's messages given at Fatima and the promise given to Father Carter, July 31, 1994.

It was a message to lead you into a deeper life in Me. IN ME. DWELLING IN ME.

Leading you to the words of St Paul:

...I have been crucified with Christ and yet I am alive; yet it is no longer I, but Christ living in me... (Galatians 2:19-20)

Jesus speaks: In My Movement, Shepherds of Christ, I want you to be one in Me as St. John talks about:

John 17:21-23

May they all be one,
just as, Father, you are in me
and I am in you,
so that they also may be in us,
so that the world may believe
it was you who sent me.
I have given them the glory
you gave to me,
that they may be one as we are one.
With me in them and you in me,
may they be so perfected in unity
that the world will recognise
that it was you who sent me

and that you have loved them
as you have loved me.

Jesus speaks: The more that you pray My prayers, the deeper you will go into Our Hearts.

In John, Chapter 9, you read the accounts of the blind man.

In John, Chapter 10, you read the accounts of the ones who hear the voice of the Good Shepherd and follow Him.

This is My Movement, Shepherds of Christ.

I lead the strayed ones home to My Heart through consecration. I have attached tremendous graces to My prayers.

My promise is this: excerpt from message to Father Carter, July 31, 1994:

"I will call them to be deeply united to My Heart and to Mary's Heart as I lead them ever closer to My Father in the Holy Spirit."

Jesus speaks: Your light was dimmed, you did not see because of the sin of Adam and Eve.

You are to be the transformed sons and daughters of Adam and Eve by dwelling in the pure and holy Hearts of the New Adam and New Eve and uniting your life to the Eternal Sacrifice, the Sacrifice of Calvary, sacramentally made present in the Mass.

See Adam and Eve See Jesus and Mary See Lucia's vision




Jesus speaks: You unite as handmaids of the Lord, in oneness pleading to the Father as you lay down your lives every day in the Morning Offering united to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.

You are prime intercessors.

You are the Shepherds of Christ leading the strayed ones home to My Heart.

John 9:6-7

Having said this, he spat on the ground, made a paste with the spittle, put this over the eyes of the blind man, and said to him, 'Go and wash in the Pool of Siloam' (the name means 'one who has been sent'). So he went off and washed and came back able to see.

Jesus speaks: In John 10, - I begin every newsletter with the quote:

John 10:11-15

I am the good shepherd:
the good shepherd lays down his life
for his sheep.
The hired man,

since he is not the shepherd
and the sheep do not belong to him,
abandons the sheep
as soon as he sees a wolf coming,
and runs away,
and then the wolf attacks
and scatters the sheep;
he runs away
because he is only a hired man
and has no concern for the sheep.

I am the good shepherd;
I know my own
and my own know me,

just as the Father knows me
and I know the Father;
and I lay down my life for my sheep.

Jesus speaks: You lay down your life.

Priests and people praying the prayers before the tabernacle will turn their churches into little cities of light. They will no longer be blind and stiff-necked. They will see as they dwell in My Heart and My Mother's Heart and are the transformed sons and daughters of Adam and Eve dwelling in the pure and holy Hearts of the New Adam and New Eve.

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.

Revelation 11:3-6

But I shall send my two witnesses to prophesy for twelve hundred and sixty days, wearing sackcloth. These are the two olive trees and the two lamps in attendance on the Lord of the world. Fire comes from their mouths and consumes their enemies if anyone tries to harm them; and anyone who tries to harm them will certainly be killed in this way. They have the power to lock up the sky so that it does not rain as long as they are prophesying; they have the power to turn water into blood and strike the whole world with any plague as often as they like.

Jesus speaks: You are a body -- you are members of the body of Christ. People must see themselves united as a body living in Me.

I give this Movement to help strengthen the body through fervent payer.

I give you My prayers to pray that you will be Shepherds of Christ, priests and associates praying for the priests, the Church and the world.

There will be one flock and one Shepherd.

You must pray for this. At the end of the 20th century I give you My Movement, Shepherds of Christ. Mary called her children to lead them to My Heart.

I call you to the depth of My Heart, to be one in Me.

At Fatima Mary told you of the importance of consecration to Our Hearts.

Now in Clearwater, Florida, she gives you the handmaids' prayers, the ones that I have given to you to help lead you into a city of light in which you will be spouse of the Lamb.

Angels Will Read the Message (excerpt)

God's Blue Book I Cover

December 20, 1993 - 2:40 a.m.

Do you think I would not go to this extent to save the souls of My loved ones? Why would I come to this earth, give My life for all My beautiful creatures, and then, at this stage of the game, not send some mighty medicine to cure My sick little ones? You possess the mighty medicine. I mixed it with such love and I hand-deliver each message to shake My people to My love. The heavens will rock and the Son of Man will appear on a cloud and the glory of the Lord will be shown on high!

Get busy, you little people. The angels declare My words are given here. This is My gift to My people-distinct, clear letters proclaiming My love. Are you listening? Do you think I would not try everything to save My beloved ones?

I Died For You (excerpt)

God's Blue Book II Cover

February 23, 1994

Listen and preach My love and emotion here. Priests will create little cities, little cities in each church to spread the light of Christ to this sick world. Each priest can create his own little city, a powerhouse of God's love. God has all the power. His power is endless. It never runs out. It is might. You have no power except through Him. Churches filled with the intimate love of Jesus will be powerhouses.

I am God, My little ones. God can do all things. I can make your cities light up the darkness. I am the Way, the Truth, the Life. I am the light of life. I am God! I can do all things. I want to act in you. You need to be in constant union with Me. My priests, you need to be selfless. My soul and yours are one. I want to act in you.

Hold not back. Pray the Prayer for Union with Me.

Focus Only on My Love (excerpt)

God's Blue Book III Cover April 11, 1994 3:30a.m.

Pray for My priests. Pray constantly. Offer sacrifices for those souls who are hurting. You have no time to ever listen to anyone's persecution. I need this work accomplished. People need to know of My ardent, on-fire, gentle love.

I Want My Priests to Come Back (excerpt)

God's Blue Book II Cover

January 17, 1994 3:40 a.m.

The priests need these messages. They need to have an intimate, close union with Me. They should be preaching "time in front of the tabernacle." They should be preaching My intense love for My people and how I have so much to give. Some sermons are so complicated--yet nothing about union with Me in the Eucharist and in front of the tabernacle. 

Jesus speaks: Can you not watch one hour with Me and pray for the priests, the Church and the world before the tabernacle?

The blind man could see. I unlock the hearts. I put the mud on his eyes and he could see. I will give the grace the way I choose in order to open your minds and your eyes.

This is My Movement, Shepherds of Christ.

Look at the Lady Clothed with the Sun on the building.

These are My two witnesses.

Listen to Me. Please pray. You will see more and more as you dwell deeper and deeper in Our Hearts.

I am the Good Shepherd, I know Mine and Mine know Me.

Mary appears to teach the world to pray.

I Want My Priests to Come Back (excerpt)

God's Blue Book II Cover

January 17, 1994 3:40 a.m.

I died for you out of deepest love. I have come in these messages to lead you back home.



Jesus speaks: IN SUMMARY: I state clearly, you must see yourselves as part of the whole, being united as a body, interceding all through the day for the priests, the Church and the world.

A City on a Hill Shines to the World (excerpt)

God's Blue Book II Cover

February 23, 1994 5:30 a.m.

Jesus speaks: I am the light of the world. A city on a hill will shine to the world. You at the Center will be this city when you are filled to the brim with the love of Jesus. What power, what might, to have each person a personal spouse of Jesus Christ! This is the light to the darkened world. The love of Jesus radiates from the very being of those who love Him. What light when all together are lifted by His love abounding deep within their breasts!
