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 25, 1999

Messenger: Today I sat beneath her image and the her beauty glistened in the morning light. She was silvery and bright and I felt her presence.

When I am in there I feel so strongly her presence and the presence of the Father.

I plead and beg for the souls she loves so.

After I was there I was moved with such emotion for the sake of souls and sorrow so intense for those who are not paying attention.

My whole weekend reflected such sorrow. The earth is saying no to such a great gift from heaven.

At the request of Mary I write this to precede today's writing and message.

There is an immense presence of Mary and God at this site in Clearwater. I received such grace from there this morning and this weekend. I cry to write this, for I am consumed with grace now.

Mary Our Mother protect, love and help us your shepherds. We love you so and ask God to forgive our sins and forgive us for ignoring Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament and for ignoring your image on the building.

The Virgin Mary building is at U.S. 19 and Drew Street in Clearwater, Florida.


Messenger: The world does not feel. If you saw Mary appear as I did 500 times and heard her cry out to help her children, if you saw Him on the cross at the point of death with His mouth moving, would it move you to tears? Would you cry knowing very intently how necessary it is that we change from our ways and tell God we are sorry and obey Him and make reparation to God for our sins?

Does it bother you to tears to know hundreds of souls today may go to hell for all eternity and your prayers and your support to help us could have made the difference?

Do you know it could have been your own son or daughter? But no matter where you are we have people praying in prayer groups for them when we pray for the Church and the world.

Does it make you cry, can you look up at your loving Mother as I did today and know we could lose the building with the Virgin Mother looking like Our Lady of Guadalupe on it and that He could greatly chastise this earth because only a very few will listen, help us and support us?

Our children are getting a daily dose of evil from the world, and as Mary said many have no one to pray for them.

I beg you to hear me and help me, to pray and do as He wishes.

There is a soul on the edge of death at this moment. It is one of Mary’s children. She came to me on that July 5, 1994, and her skin was darkened and her face so sorrowful, I could not explain it. It looked as if her face was cracked - her skin as the color of Our Lady of Guadalupe. She appeared in the beautiful glow as coming from a fire.

(excerpt from Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary)

July 5, 1994 6:30 p.m.

Messenger: I was told to go to Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center to pray the rosary with my children. There were people in the front of the church, so we decided to pray the rosary in the back before the Sorrowful Mother statue. I had the following vision at the end of the rosary.

The statue of the Sorrowful Mother was lit up as if she had fire around her. The light was very bright. Her whole gown was all-white, but the statue's gown is blue and pink. She was all aglow. It looked like the glow that comes off of a fire. Her face kept changing but remained totally sorrowful-the sorrow of an older woman. She was in such pain and sorrow! (It was hard to explain how she looked-extremely pained!) Her face looked as though she was in such pain that she could hardly bear it.

The vision remained like this for about ten minutes, having begun during the last Hail Mary of the Sorrowful Mysteries of the rosary. She was holding something-it was all bright white-the brightest light ever!

- From Blue Book IV

Messenger: Only twice I saw her with this darkened skin, July 5, 1994, and March 5, 1995. Then a month or so after the appearance on the building, I was telling someone this and the person said, "The skin is the color of Our Lady of Guadalupe." and I said, yes, that is exactly it, and it was. I figured later the cracked face was from the tears streaming down her beautiful tender face.

On March 5, 1998, we had a rosary here at Clearwater, and she gave specific messages what she wished for her image building.

I am a messenger from God, the anguish in my soul burns within me for Mary’s children.

She said once at Mass very strongly "Pray for my children". Mary is the Mother of all.

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

Mary speaks: 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.

Song: O Lady of Light, shining so bright, be with us this day, guiding our way, O Lady, O Lady of Light.

Mary speaks: I appear to you as Our Mother of Sorrows.

Messenger: On December 12, 1996, she told me to put this message on a tape and say something like, "Jesus and Mary told me to make this tape on the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe". This was done and passed out December 13, 1996 on Tom’s farm.

Looking as Our Lady of Guadalupe in rainbow color, she appeared on the building 5 days after the message to make the tape, Mary’s Message.

The Rosary Book was released that day December 17, 1996, with a rainbow.

Mary speaks: I am Mary your Mother, I implore you to listen and respond to my Son.

Please my children, Pray!

Help me to reach my children.

Remember Scotty and Oscar, please print their story here.

Mary speaks: It was a cold blustery day. After two weeks of falling because his knees gave out, Oscar entered the doctor's office and began tests. By the end of the week he found out his body was filled with cancer and he had only a few months to live. He was a big businessman with lots of clients and a busy schedule. He really didn't have a lot of time for the family and love. Much time was spent in making contacts for his business. It took many hours for social connections. He played a lot of golf at the country club. He took long trips, half pleasure, half business, to make the right connections. He had built a very secure castle for his life here below. He was fixed with insurance and financial security. It never dawned on him how temporary everything really was here on the earth. He was in good health, or so he thought. He had his check-ups regularly. He tried to exercise and eat right. He told himself that what counted was his name and his money. He was very concerned with what others thought of him and centered his life on creating an image among men. He wanted to be accepted by men.

I tell you of Scotty, a twenty year old son of a rich banker. Scotty was neglected by his parents and wanted attention and love, as any normal child. From the earliest days his parents fought and had little time for him. They had lives of their own, making a name for themselves and indulging in sexual pleasures with other members of the opposite sex. Scotty learned of this behavior. When other children were being taught they were important and lovable, Scotty was taught he was in the way. He received every kind of expensive toy and was taken to the richest schools, but his heart ached within his chest for love. One day, after several loving relationships with college friends that had failed because he didn't know how to love, he took an overdose of drugs and died at the early age of twenty. Why did he take his life, with all his money? What more could he ask for? He wanted love my children, love, but the parents were too busy looking for love and acceptance themselves to give the proper love and attention to Scotty.

Generation upon generation of unhealed wounds are passed down from imperfect parents who have forgotten God and the Ten Commandments.

My children, I loved Scotty and Oscar, I tried to reach them. Many prayed for Oscar, but few prayed for Scotty. Many souls do not have anyone to pray for them.

Mary speaks: I love you, there are so many children today like Scotty and Oscar. Will you help them? The people you reach will pray for your children. How dear are my children to me.

I love you so much. Mary.

September 6 1995 entry from the Mass Book

September 6, 1995


Written at 9:15 a.m., in the cemetery:

Much of the world is cold and callous. To show emotion is looked on scornfully or as if something is wrong. Do not let your tears fall, my beloved world, stop the flow - this is the message of the world. How can I know Him as I do and not be moved to such emotion? He comes to us as the Sacred Heart; Mary comes as the Immaculate Heart. Love includes emotion, burning emotion. I am wrapped in deep sufferings to see this blind world, and to know how much He loves all. I have such sorrow in my heart when Jesus and Mary allow me to suffer to some degree the pains They suffered. These emotions are indescribable in words. Tears cannot express the sorrow inside.

If we cry today, everyone says, "What is wrong, stop it!"

Christ Himself wept over Jerusalem. He went off to pray alone constantly. Did He cry? Did He express the deep emotion within? His Heart is burning with such love for man that He came into this world and took the nature of a man, that He died a brutal death on the cross that we would have life!

He comes as the Sacred Heart. His body was covered with blood and wounds. His head was pierced with thorns. His hands and feet were pierced with nails. His Heart was pierced with a lance. We do not see, we are numb. Mary is shown with the swords in her heart. How can we look at Them with wounds in Their Hearts, the cross above His Heart, the crown of thorns around Their Hearts and not be moved to tears!

Many men are cold and callous in their hearts. Many Masses are celebrated that lack emotion. Many people go to Mass and go through the motions.

The Mass is alive. Jesus is alive. He is here. The sacrifice of Calvary is sacramentally made present in the Mass!

At the Consecration of the Mass, hear His beloved Mother cry for her little lost children of the world. See her and hear her calling out with a sword in her heart.

…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.

"To prevent this, I shall come to ask for the consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart and the Communion of Reparation of 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."22 23

I stand under the 12th Station at Holy Cross-Immaculata Catholic Church and experience a double pain for her - a pain deep in her heart to see her beloved Son hanging before her on the cross, the child of her womb, and the pain of her beloved children going to hell this day despite His suffering and death.

With pleading hands she raises them to us in the Sorrowful Mother statue, pleading and begging us to wake up before it is too late.

I experienced her suffering at different times all through the Passion - her seven sorrows. These sufferings were great joy for me to know more deeply the message I want to deliver to this world.

It is the message of the burning love of her Son, Jesus Christ!

We see Them with wounded Hearts. We see the Sacred Heart with Thorns. We see His Sacred Heart with the cross above His Heart. Our love for Them is cold.

Their love is the love that both Mary and Jesus tell us about in the Stations and the Sorrowful Mysteries. I feel these emotions. I know the love. I feel the love of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit all through the Mass. I feel the pain when I go before the tabernacle. Jesus wants our love. I was wrapped in such acute pain on Ascension Thursday. He is alive today.

I know the love. I feel the pain. I cry at the joy. I cry at the sorrow. The love He has is the love we experience when we stand beneath the cross with Mary, side by side with her under the cross and watch our best Friend as He dies for us. He is covered with blood.

We are numb. We are cold. We are contained. We are proper. We are in our heads and not in our hearts. He calls for us to love Him with our whole hearts, our whole soul, and our whole being. Our hearts are cold, some hearts are hearts of stone. Look at the Immaculate Heart and the Sacred Heart. They have Hearts that beat and burn with deepest love, hands on each side of His Heart. They show Their Hearts. Mary's heart has a sword in it. His Heart is pierced. We still hold on to our non-emotional love of Jesus!

The Apostles converted many, for their hearts burned with deepest love for Jesus. They were not afraid to preach the Gospel. They were locked in prison and came forth singing. They knew He was alive. Their actions were determined by Him. They did not ask men what they should do.

My being cries out. My insides are deeply ingrained with His burning love. His love is not to talk about in a monotone voice. It is to be lived in such oneness with Him that my insides cry out, my being proclaims this love. I want to "dig down" so deep in myself and cry out, "He is alive!"

Many hearts of men are cold. I envision His Heart, a furnace of deep, white and yellow, burning love.

I wish I could write all I have felt. Jesus gives Himself in the Mass. We hear, "This is My Body. This is My Blood."

He gives us Himself. He is truly present in the Eucharist, the same Jesus that walked the earth, the same Jesus that carried His cross and died for us. What more do they want? He is alive, He is alive, He is alive.

I am wrapped in such intense pain with His pain before the tabernacle and her pain during the Passion. I have experienced so much of these emotions that They experienced during the Passion. He shows us the Hearts, the swords, the wounds, the nails, the thorns, the blood - He shows us this day but we don't get it!

Many men's hearts are cold. We proceed the same way about our relationship with Him - constricted and cold. Listen to the words of this song. It moves the heart. "I come to you with greatest love, I am your loving Savior. I am your God, I died for you, I come to you this day." Analyze the words. Each word is filled with His deep, burning love. It is so hard to express the real message in words, the message of the deep oneness He wants with us.

Oneness is not words exchanged, visions seen, Scriptures read, rosaries prayed, Masses attended - oneness is being so united to Him, to be one in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. As we partake in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, as we love Their lives in the rosary, as we live the words in the Scriptures, the Living Word of God, there is a oneness in our every breath as our heart burns for love of Him and He burns for love of us. As we unite in oneness in Mary's heart and we love the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, through her heart, as we become one in Their Hearts, we are one with the Father and the Holy Spirit. We become one in the Holy sacrifice of His precious Son to the Father, in the Holy Spirit. We live in His will in loving surrender, dying to ourselves, and living in Them.

I live through Him, with Him, and in Him. It is no longer I who live, but He Who lives in me. I become one in Their Hearts. I unite in such oneness with God and all other men.

See Mary with a parade of faces - joyful and sorrowful, old and young. We unite with Christ in His life, His young life to His Ascension into heaven. We live Their lives in our lives, Their sorrows, Their joys, as we live the Gospel message in our lives. Jesus has died. He is risen, and He will come again!
