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 28, 1999

Messenger: Mary has pure desire. In offering the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, we wish our offering to be that of greatest purity, our desire to be so one in accord with His holy will.

The more we are one in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary as we participate in the Mass, the more pure our disposition, the greater is our offering as we unite to Christ through holy union for the purpose intended by the Father.

On January 25, 1999, I was so one in her Heart, her pure and Immaculate Heart, loving, praying, honoring, thanking God and knowing the intensity of Mary pleading for her children. Knowing the desire of her Heart for these children to be saved, I begged in her Heart that grace would be given that they would respond willingly to God.

Mary asked me to pray at Mass for her children. In the purity of her Heart, I was so one with her in that Mass. I experienced her love and desire to reach them.

It is so impossible to express what I know from that experience at Mass.

Mary has the most pure Heart of any human person. Ours are tainted with sin, hers is Immaculate. The desire of her Heart is the most perfect desire that any human person could have. Her desire is aligned with the Father's will as perfectly as any human person could be.

Pure desire is found in the Heart of Mary. The Good Shepherd, Jesus Christ, the Chief Priest and Victim offers a sacrifice all perfect, all powerful.

Our hearts are tainted and covered with sin. Even the holiest saints had tainted hearts. We cry out in the Mass that our hearts be cleansed so that we may offer a pure and holy sacrifice.

It was in this experience through Mary's Heart that I knew the purity of desire at the Mass to love Him, serve Him, praise Him, thank Him and plead for grace and mercy for the souls of this earth, that they would be made holy, that they would be saved.

We need priests and people offering the Mass with great purity of desire, being so one in Their Hearts, partaking in the highest level possible so that grace is outpoured as we see in Lucia's vision, June 25, 1929.

Luke 1:46-48
The Magnificat

And Mary said:

My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God my Saviour; because he has looked upon the humiliation of his servant. Yes, from now onwards all generations will call me blessed,...

Messenger: Yes, Mary, all generations will call you blessed, Immaculate and pure. In your Immaculate Heart and the Heart of your Son, Jesus, we offer the holiest sacrifices.

The desires of our hearts become more pure, as the Father intends, for the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.

The priest must be so identified with Jesus in offering sacrifice.

In the first issue, 1999, of the priestly newsletter, Father Carter speaks of this identification of the priest with Christ in the Mass. This beautiful newsletter of Our Lord for his priests has been taped and is available.

When priests realize that they should offer sacrifice in such loving union with the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, more and more grace will flow on this troubled earth, thirsty for this grace.

Please help us reach the priests with this newsletter. Please help priests through your prayers. Priests so one in Him offering the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is an enormous source of this abundant grace that the earth needs. The holier the priest, the more pure the sacrifice of priests and people, the greater the grace released.

Please show a picture of Lucia's vision, 1929.

Lucia's vision of June, 1929

Mary speaks: My children, come to my Heart and the Heart of my Son. Please help me reach my priest-sons with your prayers and support and the priestly newsletter of my Son, Jesus.

I ask that priests say the words of the Mass slowly and from the heart.

On this January 28, 1999, I implore you to take me seriously and to pray.

I appear Our Lady Clothed with the Sun. I reflect the beauty of His life within me.

I am Mary your Mother, Full of Grace.
