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: Include Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center in 6:20 prayers.

A Tribute to Mary my Mother

Messenger: When I was five years old my mother died. The light in my life felt as if it went out and I had to look for another light, I found the light inside my heart and soul. My God became so real to me and I knew that deep place within where I found God. I also began to know my Mother Mary.

Soon afterward my step-mom came to live with us and she was very holy. We prayed the rosary every night as a family and my dad prayed three rosaries every day. He would walk around in the yard and pray his rosaries. My dad was not perfect, but he lived his life with his focus on God.

The greatest thing I was taught was by his example. In all his good points or in his imperfections and weaknesses, the candle he held high in his heart was his God. When my mother died, despite all the sorrow, the light passed on to me always was that of God and His true presence in the Eucharist. I began to know the power of prayer and the rosary.

In the world of imperfect human beings, mothers, fathers, children, grandmas, grandpas, one of the greatest gifts we can give our children is that of our example and our lives lived in trying to please God, obey His Commandments and stay connected to God. We may have fallen or maybe are learning about God now for the first time. It is important we teach them about God today. The world is in the state of becoming and so is the Church. We are in a state of becoming in our lives. We are hopefully, becoming more and more like Jesus.

We cannot lose hope ever. We may suffer, we may feel alone, we may be misunderstood, we may need time to work things out, but we must be constant in our relationship with God and realize that we are teaching many things to others by how we live.

The victory is WON. My dad may have been one way and your dad another way, but we want to teach our children about God. We teach them by showing them our constant dependency on Him. When we cannot do anything in certain situations, we have faith in the power of prayer. We know our God is hearing our prayers and will help us. So we pray when we need help.

We are the children of God. What good parent would not help her own child when the little child comes for help?

I write to you of my Mother Mary, Mother of the Church, bride of Christ.

I saw her appear all those times and it wasn’t a sophisticated document she delivered. It was the simple cry of a Mother anguishing for her children going to hell.

What did Mary say to Jacinta before Jacinta died?

(From: The Spirituality of Fatima and Medjugorje: )

More souls go to Hell because of sins of the flesh than for any other reason.

Priests must be pure, very pure. They should not busy themselves with anything except what concerns the Church and souls. The disobedience of priests, to their superiors and to the Holy Father, is very displeasing to Our Lord.

Messenger: On July 13, 1917, apparition, Mary showed those three little children hell, she said:

(From: The Spirituality of Fatima and Medjugorje: )

You have seen Hell, where the souls of poor sinners go. To save them, God wishes to establish in the world devotion to my Immaculate Heart.

Messenger: Oh my children, Mary is Mother.

The Church is Mother of her children.

Oh, I write now from my heart about our Mother and my role as mother in delivering these messages.

At the end of the Bible it says:

Revelation 21:1-7


The heavenly Jerusalem

Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; the first heaven and the first earth had disappeared now, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride dressed for her husband. Then I heard a loud voice call from the throne, 'Look, here God lives among human beings. He will make his home among them; they will be his people, and he will be their God, God-with-them. He will wipe away all tears from their eyes; there will be no more death, and no more mourning or sadness or pain. The world of the past has gone.'

Then the One sitting on the throne spoke. 'Look, I am making the whole of creation new. Write this, "What I am saying is trustworthy and will come true."' Then he said to me, 'It has already happened. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give water from the well of life free to anybody who is thirsty; anyone who proves victorious will inherit these things; and I will be his God and he will be my son.

Messenger: The Church is bride. Our role is to live more like that bride of Christ.

Behold the Bridegroom comes.

Revelation 22:12-14

Look, I am coming soon, and my reward is with me, to repay everyone as their deeds deserve. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. Blessed are those who will have washed their robes clean, so that they will have the right to feed on the tree of life and can come through the gates into the city.

Messenger: The last two verses of the Bible say:

Revelation 22: 20 - 21

The one who attests these things says: I am indeed coming soon.

Amen; come, Lord Jesus.

May the grace of the Lord Jesus be with you all. Amen

Messenger: I lived my life as a mother of four children. I had each baby, carried it and watched it. I worried with them when they were sick and I was always afraid of something happening that they could die, so I watched them really close. There were always little things around they could choke on or choke on their food, or run in the street or drown in a pool. The biggest fear for a mother is that something could happen to kill her child.

Then there is the care, the nursing, the getting up with little babies with high fevers, the staying up with one that may be asthmatic and listening to the breathing, the worrying about their nutrition, their teeth, their sleep, their spiritual needs, their needs, their friends, their toys, their feelings… I speak only as a mother. I am sure fathers have similar concerns. I do so thusly as I have been directed by our Lord to demonstrate the motherly care of the Church for the spiritual needs of the children.

So you wonder, why a housewife, a mother of four, a math professor, one who did not know the books in the Bible in 1993, why did God ask me to write to you? YOU HAVE AN IMPORTANT ROLE TO play in bringing about the reign of His Sacred Heart. You have been led down this path that He could give these revelations to help both of us and to help others to prosper from them. Your life is tailor made for you to help in this most extensive plan of helping to renew the Church and the world. Your life is most important to this plan of the Father.

Mine was the life of a mother, one who nurtured and raised babies, not one who studied in seminaries or went always to church. I did go to the Eucharist a lot my whole life and prayed the rosary.

I include here a letter I wrote to a dear friend.

Jesus wants me to share this with you.

I write as a mother, one chosen by Him to write about mothers and their children.

My dear friend,

Jesus came to save men from their sins.

Jesus reveals to us the plan of the Father.

It is through Jesus we are saved.

The Church is the Body of Christ.

God came to save us from our sins. Mary said this to Jacinta before she (Jacinta) died:

(From: The Spirituality of Fatima and Medjugorje: )

More souls go to Hell because of sins of the flesh than for any other reason.

Priests must be pure, very pure. They should not busy themselves with anything except what concerns the Church and souls. The disobedience of priests, to their superiors and to the Holy Father, is very displeasing to Our Lord.

Messenger: Why would not the Lord Who is telling us about Holy Mother the Church want His Church to speak about the 6th Commandment when the children are dying because of sins against it? Our Lord told us to read the Catechism about the 6th commandment and study it.

What mother wouldn’t tell her children about the cars in the street that could kill them if they do not watch when they cross the street?

In the Church we learn a lot of teachings, but Mary our Mother tells us of her children going to hell.

A great fear of a mother of a small child is that he could get killed. They can choke on little toys and trinkets on the floor, choke on food, run into the street, drown in a pool or fall in a river.

A mother fears her child dying. She must protect them.

Mary, Mother of her children, tells of her children dying and going to hell.

She is a Mother. Her Fatima messages tell of their spiritual death. She shows them hell. She is a Mother.

The Church is Mother. She is called Holy Mother the Church.

It’s simple, its like raising children, you’ve got to watch them or they could die.

Mary watches her children.

She comes and cries to me 500 times. HELP ME!!

Then she appears in Florida. "I STOOD BENEATH THE CROSS AND CRIED."

THE CHURCH IS MOTHER. She must tell the children about sin and the devil and the errors in the world.

I’ll tell you, if you carried a baby in your womb and threw-up for months and nursed babies on sore breasts and you fed them every little drip of nutrition for their little bodies to make them strong, your inside would be bleeding and your heart pierced with swords about what is happening to the children.

When a baby bleeds in the street you cry about it, you feel it deep in your heart.

The Church’s babies are crying in the street. Some are covered with black blood that Satan has spread on them because their souls are dead. Satan is luring them into sin.

The Church must warn the children about the devil, tell them about sin, like a mother would protect a child by instructing them about the traffic in the street.

I nursed my babies and held them and kissed them and cried when they fell and I shared the pain of their wounded knees. I remember when the piano bench went into my child’s skin right above his eye and I had to take him to the hospital for stitches. He was about two years old. They had to sew up a big gashing wound.

A mother would run in the street after a child about to get hit, she wouldn’t look around and see if anybody is going to mind if she runs on their grass.

Mary appears in Florida to tell us how serious it is.

Mary said at Fatima:

(From: The Spirituality of Fatima and Medjugorje: )

You have seen Hell, where the souls of poor sinners go….

Messenger: Then she showed 3 little children hell.

It is simple. Jesus came to save souls. A lot of Mary’s children are disobeying the 6th commandment. WE CAN’T LOOK AROUND while the kids run in the street and worry if the neighbors will get mad if we walk on their grass. The kids are dying. Much of this is caused by the devil using sex to lure the children into sin. We need to talk about what is right and what is wrong and tell them about the devil. What mother would stand by and watch her child get hit by the cars? She WOULD WARN them about the cars and the street. She WOULD RISK her own life to save them. She doesn’t worry about the neighbor’s grass.

The kids are dying. I can’t stand it. I wish that others would have seen Mary appear with the sword in her Heart. The messages of Jesus and Mary are in the red Rosary Book---Rosaries from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. I saw Jesus at the point of death. I saw Him as He hung on the cross.

DO YOU SEE MARY-MOTHER-APPEAR ON THE building in Florida? Do we worry about what people think and miss our bleeding children?

They are dying in the street. The devil comes like a black car out of nowhere. He is running down the children.

I am a mother and mothers with little children run in the street and get the kid about to get run over.

A lot isn’t done because of blindness and past learned behavior patterns. And the devil blocks communication. The Trinity communicates in perfect love. The Father sends the Son. The Son obeys. They work together as one perfectly. The kids are dying. A mother with a heart so attached to her kids would go to any extent to save her kids.

It’s not only books and scholars - we need to love the children and reach out to help save them. Look at the love of Christ. He got on the cross and died for them. We must instruct them about the devil and his tactics, teach them about the Commandments and realize some of our children are dying a real death in their souls.

Mary speaks: I am Mary your Mother ---

I appear to you on the building. I am crying to you to reach my children. I appear with a rosary in my hand. In my final apparition at Fatima I said this to you:

(From The Spirituality of Fatima and Medjugorje: )

The October 13 vision was accompanied by the great Miracle of the Sun described in the previous chapter. In her message that day, Our Blessed Mother told the children:

I am the Lady of the Rosary. I have come to warn the faithful to amend their lives and to ask pardon for their sins. They must not offend Our Lord any more, for He is already too grievously offended by the sins of men. People must say the Rosary. Let them continue saying it every day.(17)

While the people in attendance were beholding the great Miracle of the Sun, the three young visionaries, and they alone, were privileged to see striking visions in the heavens:

As Our Lady had promised, St. Joseph had come with the Holy Family and had blessed the world. Then, Our Lady appeared as the Mother of Sorrows, accompanied by her Divine Son, Who also blessed the world. Finally, Lucy had seen the Blessed Virgin, dressed in the brown robes of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, crowned as Queen of Heaven and Earth, holding a brown Scapular in her hand, with her infant Son upon her knee. However, in none of these visions had any of the figures spoken to the children. (18)

Besides the messages associated with the major Fatima apparitions, there were other revelations given by Our Lady. Before Jacinta died, she told of other messages given her (during her illness) by Mary:

More souls go to Hell because of sins of the flesh than for any other reason.

Certain fashions will be introduced that will offend Our Lord very much.

Many marriages are not good; they do not please Our Lord and are not of God.

Priests must be pure, very pure. They should not busy themselves with anything except what concerns the Church and souls. The disobedience of priests, to their superiors and to the Holy Father, is very displeasing to Our Lord.

I can no longer restrain the hand of my Divine Son from striking the world with just punishments for its many crimes.

If the government of a country leaves the Church in peace and gives liberty to our Holy Religion, it will be blessed by God.

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. (19)

Mary speaks: Show a picture of me on the building.

Mary speaks: Please study the Catechism on the 6th Commandment as my Son, Jesus, has told you.

Please study this for me.

I am Mary your Mother, Mother of the Church and of my children.

Messenger: The Church teaches us:

Matthew 28: 18-20

Jesus came up and spoke to them. He said, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go, therefore, make disciples of all nations; baptise them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teach them to observe all the commands I gave you. And look, I am with you always; yes, to the end of time.’

Luke 10: 16

‘Anyone who listens to you listens to me; anyone who rejects you rejects me, and those who reject me reject the one who sent me.’

John 19: 26-27

Seeing his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing near her, Jesus said to his mother, 'Woman, this is your son.' Then to the disciple he said, 'This is your mother.' And from that hour the disciple took her into his home.

Luke 1: 48

because he has looked upon
    the humiliation of his servant.
Yes, from now onwards
    all generations will call me blessed,

Messenger: Mary says from now on that all ages will call her blessed.

Mary is Mother of the Body of Christ.

Sorrowful MotherMary's Message from the Rosary of August 27, 1996

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.

Song: O Lady of Light, shining so bright, be with us this day, guiding our way, O Lady, O Lady of Light.

Mary speaks: I appear to you as Our Mother of Sorrows.

(End of Mary's Message)
