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.

Messenger: Mary is Mother, Queen of the Universe. She is one with Jesus. Before her death our Lady gave Jacinta the message that Jesus wished His Heart venerated next to hers.

From The Spirituality of Fatima and Medjugorje, p. 18:

Tell everybody that God gives graces through the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Tell them to ask grace from her, and that the Heart of Jesus wishes to be venerated together with the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Ask them to plead for peace from the Immaculate Heart of Mary, for the Lord has confided the peace of the world to her.

She is one with God. She appeared and appeared, but so many would not listen to her, her children of the earth, many of her children of the Church.

The Church says Fatima is worthy of belief, why do we not do what she said at Fatima: 1) pray the rosary daily 2) consecrate our hearts to the Heart of Jesus and to Mary's Heart 3) observe the first Saturday Devotion 4) make reparation.

Mary has been ignored by many of her children. Many do not recognize her role in the Church. Many do not recognize her as Queen of Peace and Mother of God and Mother of all her children.

God shows us the great honor He gives to Mary as His Mother. We know from meditating on the mysteries of the rosary the Incarnation goes on in us.

Mary is the Mother that is not recognized to have authority by many of her children. Mary is one with God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Mary is with God, as we say in the Hail Mary…full of grace the Lord is with you.

All of us that cry with the words of Mary in our mouths cannot be wrong. Lucia at Fatima, the children of La Salette, the visionary of Batania, the children (and now adults) of Medjugorje, visionaries of Cincinnati. The lady of Clearwater is crying out for conversion.

Our Lady has called to her children and many will not listen to her. Many have made her role as their mother not important.

There is an attitude in the world today to look the other way. In an alcoholic home people live their whole lives in pain and suffering with the "elephant in the living room". The disease of alcoholism grips one or more parties in the house and the family lives in denial. The alcoholic is falling down in the living room every day, the home-life is a horror-scene sometimes, and each one denies it, covers it up, puts on a mask, and goes into the world acting as if everything is perfect at home.

The dirty laundry is hanging out. We have the violence of the video games, the murder of babies, the illicit sex, the other perverse sexual behaviors. We have children being taught on movie screens that direct disobedience to the Commandments is permissible. There is the twisting of the truth on our screens and in the media that makes right-wrong and wrong-right. The world is in a numb-type state. The horror of what our children as youngsters are being taught is awful and a great number of people are becoming sicker and sicker, making the Commandments non-existent or twisting their content. The world has put aside, in many cases, the truth that God is the true Authority and power and authority come from Him, that we act to serve Him in His name.

2000 years ago, they called Jesus crazy, the Almighty God, and they crucified Him. As He was about to die, He gave us His Mother to be our Mother and Mother of the Church.

At the point of death, He could have come down and told us through power and might Who He was, but He obeyed the will of the Father and died, paying the price for our sins.

Mary calls out to us. It is like a bad dream or a movie. Remember the movies in which someone is about to die and an angel comes to warn them to change his ways and do good. You are watching the movie and you know that he has to change his ways or he will go into a pit. And you sit on the edge of your seat and you want to get into the movie and tell him, "You are going down this way which leads to the pits of hell and this way leads to heaven. Be good so that you go to heaven." You want to say, "Don't be mean to your brothers, quit indulging in illicit sex and drugs, obey the Commandments, you are really close to a bad end."

Mary sees this. Mary is with God. Mary loves her children more than we love our children. Mary calls out to all these people. There are those who have given their lives delivering Mary's message.

Mary has appeared to me 500 times. She delivers Mary's Message, and on the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, December 12, 1996, I am told to make the tape "Mary's Message". (5 days before, Jesus had appeared to me dying on the cross, at the point of death. This was on the anniversary of Mary appearing on the 5ths of the month for 2 1/2 years. Jesus appeared with His jaw moving later that night giving me the message, "no one is listening.")

Here is what Mary and Jesus told me to put on the tape, December 12, 1996:

s-mother2.jpg (12153 bytes)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.

Messenger: Watch the movie that Mary wishes to show us. It shows Fatima and World War II. At Medjugorje Mary has appeared daily for many years. The war near Medjugorje is awful. Mary appeared at Falmouth, the town of Falmouth was flooded.

The Commandments must be obeyed as they are. We must see that what is right is right and what is wrong is wrong.

The numbness is present in many. Mary says, "Listen to me". What is a problem, many people ignore. The sicknesses are existent in us as the human race. We are one family, the creatures of God.

This is really a serious situation. I began receiving messages in 1991. I have watched His wrath come down, but people will not listen.

Mary is the Mother, warning us that something bad will happen if we do not obey God.

Watch the movie of Mary's visits in the 20th Century. She is the Queen of Peace.

 l-grace.jpg (22553 bytes) Our Lady of Clearwater

God has entrusted the peace of the world to Mary, she is the Queen of Peace. Mary appeared at Fatima in 1917. Mary's peace plan was given to Lucia as follows:

  1. Until a sufficient number of people have consecrated their hearts to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, we will not have peace in the world.
  2. Mary has requested all to pray the daily rosary.
  3. We must observe the First Saturday devotion.
  4. We must make reparation to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

Messenger: Many people have become used to ignoring problems and adapting to the ills and sins in the world. They see themselves as superior and unattached regarding the evil. They accept it as if it can be ignored. But our children are being brought up from the "belly of the earth". What are the children being taught? I cannot keep my children isolated from the evil, no matter how hard I try, and I can't protect them from it either. Evil surrounds us, and, sad to say, people will not hear Mary.

The rosary is important, for it keeps us focused on the truth. The truth is Jesus and Mary did God's will. In the first Joyful Mystery we have the scene where Mary says: "…let it happen to me as you have said." (Luke 1:38).  In the first Sorrowful Mystery we have the scene where Jesus says: "Nevertheless, let your will be done, not mine." (Lk 22:42). In the garden the New Adam says He will do God's will and sweats Blood, the saving Blood for us sinners. In the Glorious Mysteries Jesus and Mary go to heaven.

Fiat. Thy will be done. To His death on the cross He did the Father's will.

Mary calls her children, many do not recognize her authority. Hail Mary, full of grace the Lord is with thee!

Mary speaks: I appear, I appear, I appear and I am ignored.

Jesus speaks: "I appear with My mouth moving at the point of death, because no one is listening."

You are in a stupor, you have become numb. There is a big problem in your world and you are ignoring the facts. Like an elephant in the living room, you do not see it before your eyes. Your world is sick. My hand is raised and about to come down on the earth. Your Mother warned you and you will not listen to her. In Clearwater there is a permanent image of Mary, the Mother of God, calling all people to the Heart of her Son. I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus. You must do as We have requested. You must pray for your Church and your world. I have given you My prayers to pray (Shepherds of Christ Prayer Manual). You must pray for your priests.

Come out of your tombs.

Come out I tell you, you have fallen asleep. You do not see the light of day, you walk in clouded shades of darkness.

"Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for me; weep rather for yourselves and for your children." (Luke 23:38)

Jesus speaks: When the son was lost, the father celebrated the return of his lost son. The other son was jealous. In My Father's house there are many mansions. Depending on how you loved and served the Lord, you will receive rewards accordingly. In many families and in the world, there is an attitude of "I am better than you." One who realizes he has gone astray and returns, many times does not find a welcoming hand and help from his family. Some families have scapegoats. They feel better about themselves if they can make someone seem weaker. They pride themselves on how they are good and others are not as good. When a suffering brother cries out, they do not help, but soon call the family members and all are raised to a greater level of superiority because of the misfortune of the other.

This is not how it is to be. You are all sinners. This attitude that "I am perfect and I must look perfect to all and make myself better than another," is from the evil one. If you are holy, it is because of My grace. You are not on ladders making sure you are on the top and everyone is under you. You are all children of God. You need to recognize your imperfections. Admit your faults and help one another. Who is better? Who is worse? That is not for you to judge. You are to face problems in the family and work in love to help each other.

Mary speaks: Wearing seductive clothing is not God's will. You will be held accountable for luring others into sin if you parade yourself seductively before their eyes.

Do not paint your faces and dress up the outside with luscious red lips. The real beauty comes from within. The beauty of the heart and the soul is what you must seek. Pray to be saturated with His grace so that that presence will be emitted from your very being. Life is not life if it is not rooted in Him.

Messenger: The greatest gift God gives us today is Jesus truly present in the Eucharist.

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.

Prayer for Union with Jesus

Come to me, Lord, and possess my soul. Come into my heart and permeate my soul. Help me to sit in silence with You and let You work in my heart.

I am Yours to possess. I am Yours to use. I want to be selfless and only exist in You. Help me to spoon out all that is me and be an empty vessel ready to be filled by You. Help me to die to myself and live only for You. Use me as You will. Let me never draw my attention back to myself. I only want to operate as You do, dwelling within me.

I am Yours, Lord. I want to have my life in You. I want to do the will of the Father. Give me the strength to put aside the world and let You operate my very being. Help me to act as You desire. Strengthen me against the distractions of the devil to take me from Your work.

When I worry, I have taken my focus off of You and placed it on myself. Help me not to give in to the promptings of others to change what in my heart You are making very clear to me. I worship You, I adore You and I love You. Come and dwell in me now.

-God's Blue Book, January 17, 1994
