Jesus speaks:    Out of darkness I have called you.

                           Sing song: Out of Darkness

Mary speaks:    I am the handmaid of the Lord —

Messenger:        We live as the spouse of Jesus —
                            He is with us every second —
                            He is attentive to our every need —

                            The ocean is so beautiful
                            The sky so fresh and clear —
                            But we can carry with us a
                                heavy fog.

Jesus speaks:    I asked you to do something
                                for Me and instead of doing
                                it you can just be
                                contrary ——

Messenger:        I remember when Jesus gave me
                                the prayer —
                                the Intimacy with the Lamb the Bridegroom
                                    of my soul —


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:        It was at that time I had
                                experienced so many deep
                                ecstasies with Jesus.

                            I know Jesus acts on my soul
                                when He chooses — I am eager
                                and ready for Him to act on
                                my soul.

                            Many days go by when the devil
                                presses in and tries to get us
                                to be divided.

Messenger:        Big flakes were coming down on December 13, 2004.
                                It was 8 months since this last
                                    snow, April 13, 2004.

                                It was 8 years since the Mary's
                                    Message tape and it was
                                    first pasted out December 13, 2004
                                    8 years ago like the snow.

                                It will be 8 years December 17, 2004 since
                                    Mary first appeared on the
                                    building in Clearwater.


Isaiah 49: 8-10

Thus says Yahweh: 
At the time of my favour 
    I have answered you, 
on the day of salvation I have helped you. 
I have formed you and have appointed you 
to be the covenant for a people, 
to restore the land, 
to return ravaged properties, 
to say to prisoners, ‘Come out,’ 
to those who are in darkness, 
    ‘Show yourselves.’ 
Along the roadway they will graze, 
and any bare height will be their pasture. 
They will never hunger or thirst, 
scorching wind and sun 
    will never plague them; 
for he who pities them will lead them, 
will guide them to springs of water.

Messenger:        On January 2, 1999 Mary gave me this message.



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.


December 15, 2004 message continues

Jesus speaks:        Some people are used to living
                            with tension — people over them
                            making them feel they are victimized —
                            a person can create tension themselves through
                            contrariness — then try to control
                            the whole atmosphere liking doing this
                            and because they feel they are now the ones over
                            everyone else.

                                I am peace and love. Jealousy
                            is a contributing factor to why some
                            people act the way they do.

                                Socialization with others is vital.
                            I intended for men to work hand-in-hand.
                            People who have failed to have or failed
                            to be in intimate relationships may
                            think that being a "loner" is more
                            important than working honestly
                            and lovingly with others.

                                Some people do things to drive others
                            away by creating an atmosphere
                            of tension — they thereby control
                            others, they think, they may try
                            through these measures to get

                                People who are rescuers are
                            very often looking for things to
                            feed their false pride. They may
                            not be concerned with doing
                            God's will — They may not be
                            concerned with the good of others
                            at all. They may be manipulative
                            and controlling and their endeavors
                            are for disharmony. Very often
                            they have a record of no successful
                            intimate interaction with others.
                            They like being alone and they don't
                            have any need for changing since they
                            see themselves as perfect and knowing
                            all things.

                                Some people rarely look into the face
                            of others, they are too busy writing
                            their own play that keeps them
                            isolated and not having to interact
                            in meaningful relationships with

                                People need to be alone, but some
                            people really never learn to be
                            with others.

                                A man was made head of a house —
                            he chased everyone away by his
                            gruff manner and attitudes,
                            poutiness, lack of openness,
                            real consideration for others.

                                People who marry many times get
                            married to please themselves - not share love
                            It can become habitual for some,
                            who from childhood have always
                            had some problem going on with
                            somebody —

                            They live in tension —

                            While children from healthy homes
                                learned to live in love and
                                peace and interaction and being
                                productive from childhood

                            Others from dysfunctional homes
                                lived in constant tension having
                                a dad or mom they feared —
                                Wherever they go now they set
                                up this same relationship
                                where someone is suppressing
                                them and they act out all
                                their hidden anger on their partner or
                                someone they can now control
                                through their snarly attitude.

                                They take special occasions
                            special times of gathering,
                            Christmas, birthday when their
                            dad made them all suffer by
                            creating tension, being drunk
                            etc. and everyone else looked
                            like they were really happy
                            in the world so they felt like the
                            wounded child in the secret
                            house — they never told the world
                            how truly birthdays and holidays

                                In a normal house there may be
                            some tension before guests, before
                            parties, birthdays, but when a
                            person creates tension for the sake
                            of division when everyone else
                            is trying to have an event that
                            will mold people together then
                            you know that is not healthy.

                                Some people wait until the
                            birthday is there and then create
                            terrible tension to ruin the party —
                            its sad and they then become the
                            one controlling events. What is
                            important to them, the dysfunctional one,
                            is not sweet peace and joy,
                            but they now have an opportunity
                            to rise up, be noticed and ruin
                            everything. Why?

                                It is most of the time —
                                inability to share joy with others —
                                seeking isolation and wanting
                                    all to suffer as they once
                                    did —
                                control of a situation with
                                    tears and anger —

                            There are passive-aggressive habits
                                some have to control situations.

                            They never learned simple give and take
                                as children —
                            Things may have been so bad at home
                                they were comfortable running
                                from the situation, reading books,
                                thinking, day dreaming

                            Now when others are around they are
                                uneasy — they have old "patterned fear"
                                they think — things may be threatening
                                they may be hollered at, they may
                                be criticized — they learned to flee
                                from others as a child and so they
                                automatically don't trust others,
                                they may be suspicious —

                            Little children learn to socialize —
                                to trust mom and dad — to work
                                with others —

                            Children in dysfunctional homes
                                thought it was perhaps, normal
                                to live with tension, unforgiveness,
                                a fog could go on of heated
                                tension - red and angry - of
                                silence for months and years —
                                problems were not handled,
                                perhaps, never spoken of —
                                honest communication thwarted —

                            Communication skills are learned —
                                In math - there is a problem —
                                    It is looked at —
                                    It is understood —
                                    There are ways to solve it —

                            If the math problem were given —
                                and if the students never open
                                the book — they don't understand
                                the problem — they don't have
                                procedures to use to solve it
                                and when the test comes — they
                                don't have a clue —
                                    they make things up —
                                    they leave the paper blank —
                                    they cover-up and try to fool the

                                Communication is like this —
                                    the tests come every day —
                                    the problems every day —
                                    the one taught as a child to
                                        never trust, never look
                                        honestly at the problem —
                                        has all this baggage they
                                        learned —

                               they learned dysfunctional ways to
                                    try to get their needs met —

                                and then most of the time not getting
                                    hardly any emotional needs met,
                                    they feel, — they built
                                    up big walls of protection
                                    because they were wounded
                                    emotionally —

                            Every time they have a problem they
                                go through past learned means
                                to handle or not handle it —

                            Few skills in dysfunctional homes
                                may have been learned to handle problems,
                                that is to say good skills —
                                many games were used mixed
                                with stuffed, pouting, emotions
                                of a depraved child ——

                            If one who is dysfunctional was
                                unloved when shown love
                                today, they may do many things —

                            a grown man can, when shown love,
                                reach out and hurt the one
                                showing love, trying to provoke
                                them to see if they will keep
                                coming and giving them more and
                                more love while they punish
                                them for the deeds done to them.

                            A small child when mother has
                                gone away on a trip may cry
                                and cry and when mother returns
                                want mother to hold them and
                                hold them while they cry and
                                cry and cry and cry —

                            The wounded adult when shown love
                                may do the same thing —
                                showing love to them is like
                                opening up a beehive and they
                                send all their bees out to
                                sting —

                            Where a normal person learned to
                                give and take with love
                                relationships — the wounded
                                child has all kinds of dysfunctional
                                ways of handling things —

                            A person whose boundaries were
                                violated physically as a child may not
                                want anyone getting too close
                                because they are afraid.

                            Normal people have a sense of
                                what is a safe space
                                around them and they may
                                let some intimate others
                                in and not let everyone
                                be that close.

                            The situation I wish to deal with
                                is the problem, people who have
                                not worked much with others,
                                may experience when dealing
                                with others in close relationships.

                            In normal relationships people
                                interact and then they leave,
                                come and go etc. without
                                problems because they trust —
                                In relationships where people
                                are very immature or wounded
                                they may not want to let go —
                                find saying good bye difficult
                                because of their insecurity from
                                childhood — (fear of abandonment)

                            A child of an alcoholic can be close to
                                mom or dad - then the mom or dad
                                have an alcoholic bout and
                                then be mean to the child the
                                next moment —

                            Some people are unpredictable —
                                they give into satan, they do not
                                control their temper — one little
                                incident can kick up their
                                red flag and they can burst with
                                anger and everyone else is
                                saying "What happened?"
                                They see it as normal to rage —
                                their dad did it — they never
                                questioned it and when put
                                in the face of others they would
                                never stop — They thought it was
                                normal.  When finally others convince
                                them it is sick.

                            They can stop raging and then punish
                                others in a passive aggressive way —
                                all are sick games of manipulation
                                and need healing — not new ways to
                                play new games of manipulation.

                            A person with "lots of baggage" can
                                be very unpredictable and can
                                sell the company because they
                                got mad one day and wanted to
                                punish somebody.

                            People punishing others unjustly and enjoying
                                it are very displeasing to

                            I am God.
                            I am love.
                            You are here to learn to be holy —
                            You have a lifetime to work out the

                            If you think you are perfect you
                                will waste the time I have
                                given you in your life
                                to learn to be more perfected like
                                your heavenly Father is perfect.

                                Your life is given to you to
                            learn to grow spiritually — to
                            love God — to walk hand-in-hand.
                            People who can only really get along
                            with themselves on a long-term
                            basis - do - just that — they are
                            like a withered reed hanging in
                            the storm, they know their
                            own wants and desires and they are
                            perfectly formed, they think, even
                            though they are withered and half

                                When asked what you want in
                            an intimate other —do you
                            want one who will turn on you —
                            I gave you the story of Judas —
                            instead of St. Judas, he chose to
                            hang himself.

                                It is a choice —
                                I told you the story of Cain —


Genesis 4: 6-7

Yahweh asked Cain, ‘Why are you angry and downcast? If you are doing right, surely you ought to hold your head high! But if you are not doing right, Sin is crouching at the door hungry to get you. You can still master him.’

Jesus speaks:          Holiness is holiness —
                                Do you want to commit sins?
                                Do you want to be prideful —
                                    over your superiors?
                                Some people at age 40 say —
                                    "no women will ever tell me anything —
                                I think they are inferior and
                                    I AM SUPERIOR?"

                            My mother was a woman — chosen
                                by God for this!

                            One cold winter day, Mary had the
                                choice to build a bridge —
                                or blow it up —

                            Every time someone tries to be the
                                one ruining the party because
                                of selfishness — they have a
                                problem they want to have
                                the focus on them.

                            Learn from the fig tree —
                                Bear fruit —
                                don't be a shriveled tree and
                                    die —
                                Fruit can be juicy
                                Fruit can be dead


John 17: 21-23

May they all be one,
just as, Father, you are in me
   and I am in you,
so that they also may be in us,
so that the world may believe
it was you who sent me.
I have given them the glory
   you gave to me,
that they may be one as we are one.
With me in them and you in me,
may they be so perfected in unity
that the world will recognise
   that it was you who sent me
and that you have loved them
as you have loved me.

                                hearts around you —

Messenger:     My dear friends

    Today the Feast of St. Xavier,
First Friday, Jesus appeared to me
as the King on His Throne at the
Cathedral where He told me to go
to Church.  


    On December 5, 1996 - 
8 years ago Jesus appeared
to me at the point of death His
mouth moving, He was in excruciating
pain, I cried and could hardly stand

From a previous daily message:

I saw Him at the point of death on the cross 
December 5, 1996, after Mary appeared 500 times.

He hung, all battered, greatly weakened. His mouth moved very clearly. It seems that a man in His condition could not move His mouth to that extent.

Later in the rosary that night, He gave messages and said: "No one was listening." 

end of excerpt

    Today the Feast of St. Xavier,
First Friday, Jesus appeared to me
as the King on His Throne at the
Cathedral where He told me to go
to Church. 

   He was smiling and His
mouth moved and moved and moved.
He looked happy and the vision was
all aglow. He gave me a message to sit
in the first pew and He appeared
and talked about 20 minutes, He
was smiling.

   May God bless you in this
most beautiful season. 

With lots of love and thanks,
