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.

I appear my children on this former bank building in Florida, Our Lady Clothed with the Sun.

November 16, 1998

Jesus speaks: Today is an important day, but so is every day I give to you, it is a gift from God.

So many do not see their lives as ending, they think they will go on forever.

I give you this day to serve Me and to love one another. Man thinks he is so smart. You are men, you do not comprehend the ways of God.

In their blindness men march to the Communion rail on Sunday (I speak thusly for they have removed the Communion rails in churches, but My Communion rail was a place from which Communion was served to the people.)

I am the Almighty, all-powerful God, I am all loving. I cannot tell you how I suffered in the garden for the souls that receive Me and run from My altars and ignore Me. I am God. I am love and perfect oneness. I give Myself most intimately to the souls. I give Myself completely to them and they run and ignore Me.

Do you know in your intimate love relationships with others what it is to love so intimately to give yourself to another and be rejected and ignored? Do you know what it is to be in a room with people you love and be treated as if you are not even there? This is how I am treated by many souls. They receive Me. My Heart is consumed with burning love for them, and they ignore Me and many do not even talk to Me.

I speak now of My Mass. I give to you the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Many of My priests come with a busy schedule. Many of My faithful come with a mind of worry and a heart closed to Me.

If the faithful would come with their hearts open to God's love, if priest and people would be united in one heart, the floodgates of heaven would open so wide and grace would be spread so copiously on the earth below.

I want all to come to the Mass with a contrite heart so filled with sorrow for sin, so wishing to beg God for forgiveness of their sins and the sins of all men. I wish men to admit their sins in the beginning of Mass and beg God for mercy.

Lord have mercy, Lord have mercy.

Christ have mercy, Christ have mercy.

Lord have mercy, Lord have mercy.

May Almighty God have mercy on us and forgive us our sins and bring us to everlasting life.

Priest and people are united begging God for forgiveness for their sins and the sins of all the earth.

Then My children, sing as never before the Gloria. I wish to be honored and adored, thanked and loved by My people. Sing to Me, do not sing to the other people there or to the walls, sing with a holy, humble heart to God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Worship and adore your God.

You do not know how to partake most completely in the Holy Sacrifice.

You come to give honor and glory to your God, to tell God how sorry you are for your sins, to unite in the deepest intimate love with your Savior and King, to thank God for all He has given you.

I speak of intimacy with God. In the Holy Sacrifice you should give yourself completely in an act of love to your God. He gives Himself completely to you.

You beg the Father, beg the Father for forgiveness for your sins and the sins of all men.

Depending on the disposition of the priest offering the Sacrifice and that of the faithful, great amounts of grace can be released to the earth.

I will write more about sacrifice in the days to come.

I do not wish My priests to come with a busy schedule, I wish them to realize the immense grace that can be outpoured on the earth from the Mass. They should come predisposed, thinking only of God and of offering a most pure and Holy Sacrifice.

The most pure Sacrifice will be offered in the pure and holy Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

All should be united in great oneness and love.

I will write more about this in future messages, entitled the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.

I love you. I am Jesus, the Son of God.
