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.

                            Dear Father,

                            May the Peace and Blessings of the Lord be always with you!

                       I found a copy of your spirituality newsletter for priests —
                      Shepherds of Christ (issue 4, published in 1998) in our library
                      last night and read it like a "starved and hungry lion". As the
                      director of our seminarians (a job I assumed just two months ago),
                      I have no doubt that our seminarians would benefit much from
                      your newsletters.

                      May I request that you include our address in your mailing list and
                      to regularly send us your richly published newsletter. Thanks a lot
                      for being part of our formation here.

                      Sincerely yours in Christ,

                      Director of Formation

Messenger:         Today is the day before Christmas Eve —
                            Oh my Jesus, the sun comes up and the sun
                                goes down and I never know what will
                                happen every day.

                            Life here has been a struggle doing your work
                                and a joy.

                                I long for the moments with you everyday
                                    at Mass and my heart is deeply
                                    connected to Thee.

                                Oh my God, help me, I give myself to you.
                                    I rely totally on Thy might.

2.    Matthew 17: 3-4

And suddenly Moses and Elijah appeared to them; they were talking with him. Then Peter spoke to Jesus. ‘Lord,’ he said, ‘it is wonderful for us to be here; if you want me to, I will make three shelters here, one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.’ 

3  Matthew 17: 5-6

He was still speaking when suddenly a bright cloud covered them with shadow, and suddenly from the cloud there came a voice which said, ‘This is my Son, the Beloved; he enjoys my favour. Listen to him.’ When they heard this, the disciples fell on their faces, overcome with fear.

4   I saw Jesus transfigured before me.

5   Every time I hear the words

        "This is My beloved Son in whom I am well pleased",

                I cry, it is so deep in my soul.

6    I saw Jesus transfigured before me.
I saw Jesus once after the snow was so high 
  outside the Church Holy-Cross Immaculata.

Excerpt from December 22, 1998

Messenger:    On January 9, 1996, I went to pray. The snow was so bad the street was blocked to Holy Cross-Immaculata. I finally managed to find a place to park and trudged through the snow, panting with joy to be with Our Lord in the tabernacle there. When I arrived all I could do was kneel before the Sacred Heart statue and pour out myself to Him.






7   January 2, 1999

Mary speaks: I am Our Lady of Snows. I come to cover the earth with a soft white blanket of my love.

I come to bring peace to the earth. I tell you to let go of the anxiety in your heart and experience my peace and His love.

I am your heavenly Mother. I come to hold you and caress you and take you to my Immaculate Heart.




8   I saw Jesus at the last moments before His death hanging on the cross
    December 1996. This was at the Church Holy Cross-Immaculata. 
    Later He told me He appeared His mouth open and moving because 
    no one was listening.    

9.    When Fr. Carter died it began to snow at Columbiere
    that night and there was a fresh snow fall on the ground —
    deep the next morning.




                                    Jesus told me to go to Fr. Carter's 
                                    grave and take this picture

10.    When I saw Jesus transfigured in Holy Cross —
     Immaculata and in the statue in Florida February 5, 2000
     when Fr. Carter blessed the rosary factory after we
     opened the rosary factory — to say He was white as
     snow doesn't describe it accurately, but when I went
     to Holy Cross-Immacualta the first time and the snow
     was so deep and the sun on it, I could hardly see —
  Jesus was like this every time I saw Him transfigured,
     it is hard to explain the light — to look away from
     Jesus when He is like this I was blinded.

2.  I love the whole service.

 3.  I love that time between Holy Thursday and Easter 
        and all the services.

  6.    Oh God gives us the priest.

  7.    I am so thankful to God for our priests.

  8.   Jesus gave me this song: lets sing it.  


Jesus gave me this song to sing to Him.

Glorious Mysteries




    1.   Christ rose from the dead.

The big stone was rolled back.

    3.    The tomb was empty.

    4.    I dreamt Fr. Carter was in the coffin
            with a white cloth on him —
            then he got out and walked around —
            he had his black priest clothes on.

    5.    Jesus was covered with a white cloth.

    6.    I know our founder Fr. Carter is with Jesus in heaven.

    7.    He always said our hearts are merged —
            even a few days before his death.

    8.    Our hearts are merged with all in heaven
            and especially we are all one in
            the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

    9.    Our hearts are merged in love in this mission.











    1.    Jesus ascended into heaven.

  10.  We are the sons and daughters of God.






Descent of Holy Spirit on the Apostles

    1.  Acts 2: 1-2

When Pentecost day came round, they had all met together, when suddenly there came from heaven a sound as of a violent wind which filled the entire house in which they were sitting; 

    2.    Acts 2: 3-4

and there appeared to them tongues as of fire; these separated and came to rest on the head of each of them. They were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak different languages as the Spirit gave them power to express themselves.

    3.      We beg for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit.

    4.    Today I feel us praying under Mary's 
            image and all united all over the world 
            by the internet is very powerful.

    5.    We pray everyday at 6:20 for a special 
            outpouring of the Holy Spirit.

            at 6:20 on the internet.

            Masses going on around the
            world at that time.







    1.   Mary is our Mother.

    2.    Mary is the Mother of Jesus.

    3.    Mary was taken into heaven.

    4.    Mary is united with us today in our hearts.

    5.  Excerpt from Tell My People, Mary Our Mother

Jesus: "My beloved friend, tell My people to come to My Mother. From the cross, as I was suffering indescribable agony, I gave Mary as spiritual Mother to the world. My great love for My people prompted Me to do this. I am Lord and Master, and I want My people to come to My Mother and their Mother. If you wish to be close to Me, come to Mary. Consecrate yourselves to her. In this way you will grow into the closest union with Me. Through her Immaculate Heart, you will be drawn more and more into My own Heart. It is My desire that you allow My Mother to place you within My Heart which loves you with an unfathomable love! This is My wish—that you come to Me enfolded by Mary's mantle, cradled in her arms, pressed against her Heart."

Reflection: It is God's will that we approach Jesus in union with Mary. Enough said!





    9.    Sing the Song Immaculate Mary








    1.   Mary is crowned Queen of heaven and earth.

    2.    Jesus is our Savior.



    4.    Genesis 3:15

    and you will strike its heel.’

    5.    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.

    6.    Sing Hail Holy Queen

    7.    Mary our Mother protect us.

    8.    January 2, 1999

Mary speaks: I am Our Lady of Snows. I come to cover the earth with a soft white blanket of my love.

I come to bring peace to the earth. I tell you to let go of the anxiety in your heart and experience my peace and His love.

I am your heavenly Mother. I come to hold you and caress you and take you to my Immaculate Heart.




Mary is the Lady clothed with the Sun

    10.  July 5, 1994 6:30 p.m.

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!
