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.

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.

Divine Mercy Sunday



How to pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet

  Begin with:

  Our Father..., Hail Mary..., The Creed.

  On the five large beads:

  Eternal Father, I offer You the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity
  of Your dearly beloved Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ in atonement
  for our sins and those of the whole world.

  On the ten small beads:

  For the sake of His sorrowful Passion have mercy on us
  and on the whole world.

  Conclude with repeating three times:

  Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One,
  have mercy on us and on the whole world.




Acts 5: 12-16

The apostles worked many signs and miracles among the people. One in heart, they all used to meet in the Portico of Solomon. No one else dared to join them, but the people were loud in their praise and the numbers of men and women who came to believe in the Lord increased steadily. Many signs and wonders were worked among the people at the hands of the apostles so that the sick were even taken out into the streets and laid on beds and sleeping–mats in the hope that at least the shadow of Peter might fall across some of them as he went past. People even came crowding in from the towns round about Jerusalem, bringing with them their sick and those tormented by unclean spirits, and all of them were cured.  


Psalm 118: 2-4, 13-15, 22-24

Let the House of Israel say, 
‘His faithful love endures for ever.’ 
Let the House of Aaron say, 
‘His faithful love endures for ever.’ 
Let those who fear Yahweh say, 
‘His faithful love endures for ever.’

I was pushed hard, to make me fall, 
but Yahweh came to my help. 
Yahweh is my strength and my song, 
he has been my Saviour. 

Shouts of joy and salvation, 
in the tents of the upright, 
‘Yahweh’s right hand is triumphant,

The stone which the builders rejected 
has become the cornerstone; 
This is Yahweh’s doing, 
and we marvel at it. 
This is the day which Yahweh has made, 
a day for us to rejoice and be glad.


Revelation 1: 9-13, 17-19

I, John, your brother and partner in hardships, in the kingdom and in perseverance in Jesus, was on the island of Patmos on account of the Word of God and of witness to Jesus; it was the Lord’s Day and I was in ecstasy, and I heard a loud voice behind me, like the sound of a trumpet, saying, ‘Write down in a book all that you see, and send it to the seven churches of Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamum, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia and Laodicea.’ I turned round to see who was speaking to me, and when I turned I saw seven golden lamp–stands and, in the middle of them, one like a Son of man, dressed in a long robe tied at the waist with a belt of gold

    When I saw him, I fell at his feet as though dead, but he laid his right hand on me and said, ‘Do not be afraid; it is I, the First and the Last; I am the Living One, I was dead and look—I am alive for ever and ever, and I hold the keys of death and of Hades. Now write down all that you see of present happenings and what is still to come.


John 20: 19-31

In the evening of that same day, the first day of the week, the doors were closed in the room where the disciples were, for fear of the Jews. Jesus came and stood among them. He said to them, ‘Peace be with you,’ and, after saying this, he showed them his hands and his side. The disciples were filled with joy at seeing the Lord, and he said to them again, ‘Peace be with you. 

    ‘As the Father sent me, 
    so am I sending you.’ 

After saying this he breathed on them and said: 

    Receive the Holy Spirit. 
    If you forgive anyone’s sins, 
    they are forgiven; 
    if you retain anyone’s sins, 
    they are retained. 

    Thomas, called the Twin, who was one of the Twelve, was not with them when Jesus came. So the other disciples said to him, ‘We have seen the Lord,’ but he answered, ‘Unless I can see the holes that the nails made in his hands and can put my finger into the holes they made, and unless I can put my hand into his side, I refuse to believe.’ Eight days later the disciples were in the house again and Thomas was with them. The doors were closed, but Jesus came in and stood among them. ‘Peace be with you,’ he said. Then he spoke to Thomas, ‘Put your finger here; look, here are my hands. Give me your hand; put it into my side. Do not be unbelieving any more but believe.’ Thomas replied, ‘My Lord and my God!’ Jesus said to him: 

    You believe because you can see me. 
    Blessed are those who have not seen 
        and yet believe.

There were many other signs that Jesus worked in the sight of the disciples, but they are not recorded in this book. These are recorded so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing this you may have life through his name.



Picture of the Sacred Heart of JesusI Love You-You Love Your Brothers

April 3, 1994 Easter Sunday

My child, calm yourself. Live only for love of Me. Live for Me and Me alone. You love Me and I love you. Your love for others will flow from your love for Me. I sustain you. I give you everything you need. Your life is but a breath here. Do not ever focus on it. Remain selfless. Rid yourself constantly of self and operate only to know, love and serve Me.

I am Jesus, the Son of God. Oh, little one, such love I have for you. Do you even know? This is not a myth. This is real. I am real. The unseen world is real. It is your faith that will sustain you. I am Jesus, the Son of God, Rita. God is talking to you. You have a job to do for all My beloved ones. I love them so. I want you to tell them of My deep and ardent love. Surrender yourself into the arms of Him Who sustains you. I catch you. I cuddle you and you, child are not suspended in mid-air. You are held tight by the hands of God. I showed you the way, child. I let go on the cross. Life comes only in this surrendering. I let go, I died that I might rise again on Easter! You die to yourself that you will live in My love. You will rise victorious in the love of Jesus. Oh, child, I am so real and I love you. What can I do to tell you how I do love you!

Live in My love. Do not judge. Do not spend idle time making yourself better than your brother. Think only of Me and how I love you. You have your job: (1) to love Me with all your heart and (2) to love your brother as yourself. Do not look on your brother with anything but love. How freeing! Love finds a way! Where hate keep you tied to yourselves, loving one and all frees you. Love Me. Love your brothers. They are responsible for their lives. You are responsible for your life.

Your job is to love. I call you, My little ones, to love of Me and love of one another. You will answer according to how you loved. You will not be judged on the amount of money you made, on your worldly possessions, on your clean rugs, on your affairs in order. You will answer for how you loved Me and loved your fellow men. You cannot love and remain selfish. Love gives to the other, love is rendering, love in no way demands itself.

The world tells you to think of yourself, give yourself pleasure, marry for your self-fulfillment, look out for yourself. The world is focused on self. I tell you that you will be judged on how you loved. Love gives of self. Love is rendering. Love does not demand its way. Love gives to the other. How can marriage work when people are living for themselves. You cannot love and be selfish at the same time. Love does not demand its own way. Love does not seek itself. Love is as I showed you when I died on the cross. I gave My all for love of you, in total surrender.

I call you, little ones, to this love. You say, "Oh, is this what you demand?" I say, "Unless you die to yourself, you will not have My life within you." Love never demands its own way. I call you to love of God, love of one another! I showed you the way. I give you all you need to follow My way. You must give Me your life. When you become selfless, you are filled by the love and life of Christ.

The life I give is a power so mighty it cannot be contained. It is emitted from your being. You love and live in Me in your being when you strip yourself of yourself.

I ask you now to surrender your thoughts, thoughts that constantly go on in your head to make you better than your brothers! Focus on Me and how I love you. Focus on how I am truly alive this day and in your midst and I want to dwell in you in love. Focus on Me. Rid yourself of yourself. Look at every person with love. Do not look with any competition or making yourself better than them. You have your job to do, they have theirs. You are all uniquely created.

Each person is perfect and loved dearly by Me. I love your brothers with My Sacred Heart. Love them as I do. I love you in all your weaknesses, in all your flaws. I love you dearly. I do not count your sins. I love you with an ardent love. I love your brothers. I, God, love all your brothers the way I love you.

Who are you to look on your brother with thoughts of "he is wrong, I am right"? You are loved so immensely by Me and My Father and the Holy Spirit and the Blessed Lady. You are surrounded by this love! You need not the approval or love of your brother. You need to give love to them! You can do this when you come and sit with Me in front of the tabernacle and after communion. You can do this when you surrender yourselves and live only for love of Me and love of them.

You are learning, child. Loving one another is freeing. You are not attached. You are free. You are not attached to your brother and how he responds to you. You love only from the love of God. You are attached to My love and My love never flickers or goes away. My love is always there. I am madly in love with you. Forgive your brother when he is cruel. Love him as I do. Come to Me for your love. I have all you need. Oh, child, you are being taught mighty lessons. The ways of God are so simple, but they are the only way. When you free yourself of your attachments to how others treat you, you will know such mental freedom.

You preach My lessons of love in how you model yourself after Me. Love the unloving and preach the message of love. You are My heart in the cold world. I am your lover. You can love because I have loved you first. I love you with a Heart on fire! Come and let Me give you this love this very day! You will love your brothers if you focus on Me. My way is the only way. My way is love!

Picture of the Sacred Heart of JesusI Have Risen To Give New Life

April 3, 1994 Easter Sunday

R. Jesus told me on Easter morning to go to a church I had never attended. Jesus was not in the church. They had a table for the altar. The tabernacle was in the corner. There was no sanctuary light. I asked a sister if Jesus was there. She took some hosts out of the freezer in a refrigerator. They were in a baggie. She put them in a bowl in the tabernacle. There was still no light. They had a policeman to direct traffic. People walked in front of the tabernacle in the corner and paid no heed to Jesus. The chairs had their backs to the tabernacle.

Who is this, our Savior, Jesus, the Son of God? God is here, mightier than any king. He is God! Who even pays Him homage? He told me to kiss the floor. I left and cried. This, my people, is the Son of God. They are hurting. They are coming to be fed. I have personal letters from Jesus declaring His love for them. Oh, Jesus, I want to spread your love! I love You so!

Jesus, I am so sorry for all the neglect and indifference. Please send us holy priests to spread Your love. Help me to circulate Your love letters. On this Easter, I vow to do all You lead me to do to spread the ardent on-fire love of Jesus. Use me, fashion me. I want to tell the world how You are in our midst this very day and how You love each of us so much.

Lip service: "the love of God"?? He loved us to His death and resurrection. New life for this world! Jesus, Jesus, I consecrate my life to You and Your most Sacred Heart.

Jesus: My little sweet one, no matter what you do, love for Me. Do not get bowed down, but shed My light to this dark world. Love, My sweet one. Do not argue. Do not defend yourself. Come and be in My Presence. I love you. I guard you. I watch over you. You are My beloved.

This, child, is the Easter message for you and all My beloved ones. Share this with all: "I have risen to give new life. Give My life to all those around you. Love My beloved ones for Me."

R. Alleluia. And He came and gave us strength to do the work He calls us to do, to love a dark world, one that is hurting.

I am the Way. I am the Truth. I am the Life. Alleluia.

Glorious Mysteries

This rosary was delivered on Easter Sunday in the Sorrowful Mother Chapel. Jesus came alive in the large Sacred Heart picture. He came out of the picture. Marty saw clusters of angels around the Sorrowful Mother statue. Mary and Jesus moved their eyes.



The Resurrection

  1. Jesus: It is in your suffering that you will have immense union with Me.
  2. Jesus: As I died and rose on the third day, you, in your suffering, will rise to new life in Me.
  3. Jesus: You have come to Me and I am here waiting for you to share this time alone with you. Put your minds at rest and unite ever so closely to My Most Sacred Heart.
  4. R. Death has no power over Jesus! On the third day He rose victorious from the tomb, His body glistening in white. He truly rose to bring us new life. We are partakers in His divine life. The gift that we receive is far beyond our comprehension.
  5. Jesus: You are as the Easter lily. You come from a narrow place and you grow more and more in this life with Me. You will bud and blossom forth and My life will radiate to this world as you become absorbed and saturated with the divine life that I impart to you.
  6. Jesus: My power is endless for I am truly here and present in this room with you. Feel the vibrancy of My presence with you. I am Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living God, the resurrected Lord. I live and am present with you this very day.
  7. Jesus: The world has closed off their hearts. They have come, their hearts are hardened, their faces are hard. I am life! You must go out to this world and give the message of My immense love. Tell this world that I am alive and I have risen, that I am in your midst this day, that I live in such an abundant fashion in the hearts of men who are in the state of grace. You, My children, are so blind! I am so present to you! God lives and is in your midst and you do not see. You run down useless roads and look for such foolish things. Oh, how I love you, My beloved. I call you to a state of urgency to spread My message to this world.
  8. Jesus: As you are in your hearts, so shall you be in this world. I am Jesus, the risen Lord. I live on in the hearts of men this day. What you do here will affect the lives of so many souls. I beg you to preach the Gospel, to pray for fearlessness to carry this message to the hearts of all men.
  9. Jesus: I am totally with you in this room. You do not realize the immense gifts that I give to you.
  10. Jesus: In Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity, I am present! The risen Lord is with you, My beloved souls, this very day!

Song between decades: Come, Holy Spirit, fill our hearts. Enkindle in us the fire of Your love. Come Holy Spirit, fill our hearts. Enkindle in us the fire of Your love.



The Ascension

  1. Jesus: Before I ascended into heaven, I gave to the apostles the power to baptize and forgive sins. I give to My beloved priests this day this power through the Church. I give to each priest the power to change bread and wine into My most precious Body and Blood. How I love My Church and love My beloved priests-sons, for they are truly called. I live in this world today through My anointed ones.
  2. R. See Jesus as He raises His arms and ascends into heaven and a cloud takes Him from our sight. We live on faith. We see the consecrated Host but we do not comprehend the great gift we have that He truly remains with us this day in the consecrated Host. God gives Himself to us! We become one in Him when we receive Him in the Eucharist. He gives us His Body.
  3. Jesus: Do you see these mysteries, how glorious they truly are that I died and rose on the third day and then ascended into heaven?
  4. Jesus: I am Jesus Christ, the Son of God, come to this earth in such great love to save souls, to lead souls to heaven to be with Me forever and ever. How many souls will be lost because of their willfulness and their ways? Pray, My children, for the souls that are in darkness. They hold on to their foolish ways. They turn their backs and go their own way.
  5. R. He went to heaven to prepare a place for us. Heaven is our true home!
  6. R. He ascended into heaven and the gates of heaven were opened!
  7. Jesus: I send you as missionaries into this world to spread the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.
  8. Jesus: You say: "For You, Lord, anything! For You, Lord, I will do anything!" And I call you to speak out in front of people and you say, "I can't do that, Lord!" I call you to pray to the Spirit for the courage to preach the Gospel for there are many who are suffering and in pain. Hear their words: "You helped me get to heaven"!
  9. R. See the souls as they ascend into Heaven behind Jesus. See the souls as they are released from purgatory because of our prayers. See the great mercy of God that He loves souls. God the Father loves us so much that He sent His Son into this world so that we might be in heaven some day.
  10. Jesus: See the souls of those living this day, and see them, as they die, being condemned to eternal damnation for their willfulness. For sin is sin and I came to give you life!

Song between decades: Come, Holy Spirit, fill our hearts…



The Descent of the Holy Spirit on the Apostles

  1. R. Jesus promised before He left the earth that He would send the Holy Spirit to baptize the apostles. Please, dear Holy Spirit, descend upon us so that we have the courage to do all that You are asking us to do. We are fearful and weak and we need Your grace. We need You to live in us, to operate in us, to help us be more and more like Jesus.
  2. R. Who is our model? Whom do we model ourselves after?
  3. R. Mary was joined in the Upper Room with the apostles and a gigantic wind came and there appeared over their heads parted tongues of fire.
  4. R. They were filled with the Holy Spirit and transformed from fear to fearlessness. They went out to preach the Gospel and all understood!
  5. R. Holy Spirit, descend upon us! Outpour all of your gifts and please give to us the courage to be able to carry out the mission that the Father has intended for us.
  6. R. Where we are, as humans, weak and afraid, saturate us with the fire of God's love so that as we operate, we operate enlightened by You. We receive Your wisdom, Your understanding and Your knowledge to know exactly what the Father is calling us to do.
  7. R. Mary, our Mother, help us to unite ever closer to the Holy Spirit that He can work and be active in our being, that we might feel this saturation and penetration of the presence of the Almighty God within our souls.
  8. R. Holy Spirit, impart to us Your life so that we may be enlightened to do all that God is asking us to do. Fill us with such a brilliant light that we know the light of the Almighty God.
  9. Jesus: I am the Way, I am the Truth, I am the Life! He who abides in Me will have the light of life!
  10. R. May we be transformed more and more into the image of Jesus in the Heart of the Virgin Mary and led to the bosom of our Father.

Song between decades: Come, Holy Spirit, fill our hearts…



The Assumption of Mary Into Heaven

  1. Jesus: Model yourselves after Mary, My Mother. She was taken body and soul into heaven. You, too, some day will be taken into My kingdom.
  2. Jesus: You must come to our Hearts. Pray from the heart, My beloved ones. As Mary was so united to My Heart, pray to Mary to unite yourselves closer and closer to My Heart.
  3. Jesus: The more you live this rosary in your daily lives, the more you will pray from your heart. It is in understanding Our lives that you will be joined closer to Us.
  4. Jesus: Our Hearts are a great symbol of Our love for you.
  5. Jesus: How is your heart? Is your heart free of all debris to unite with My immense love? Purify your hearts and come ever closer to Me for a heart that is full of sin cannot unite with My Heart. My Heart is pure and filled with love. To unite closely with Me, your hearts must be forever pure.
  6. Jesus: How I want to unite with each one of you in deepest love, to unite more deeply with you. The love that I have is immeasurable and the longings of your hearts are the longings to unite ever closer to My Heart. You will be satisfied in heaven, My beloved ones, for your hearts will be filled with My love.
  7. R. Mary went to heaven and united closely with the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit in a most intense union.
  8. Jesus: Your hearts crave this love that only I can give. Search you this barren desert and you will never satisfy the cravings in your hearts.
  9. R. Mary mothers us as she mothered Jesus. Mary is the Mother of the Church. We pray to Mary to lead us to an ever deeper union with God.
  10. R. We pray to Mary to lead this Church into deeper union with Her Son, to help the priests and the religious who are our ministers in this Church, to lead the souls to deep and longing love with Jesus Christ, the Son of God.

Song between decades: Come, Holy Spirit, fill our hearts…



Mary Is Crowned Queen of Heaven and Earth

  1. R. Mary reigns with her Son in the courts of heaven! The Sacred Heart of Jesus will reign on this earth! The Immaculate Heart of Mary will triumph! There will be an era of peace, but many will suffer the loss of their souls for their own willfulness.
    Jesus: You are a big part of the Father's plan to help souls to know of the love of God. I beg you to pray fervently from the heart and to lead others to the love of My Heart.
  2. R. How the Heart of Mary knows the Heart of Jesus. How she stands by our side and mothers with the most maternal love. How do we turn to Mary? Do we realize that she is here at every second waiting to take us to the Heart of her Son? She reigns in heaven with her Son Jesus. He loves His Mother so much. Ought we not put our faith and trust and love in His Mother so that she might lead us closer to His Sacred Heart?
  3. R. We are the children of God. God is our Father. Let us realize how we must live in connection with the Father, that our every action is to please Him and to do His Will, that Mary is our Mother and by our side with love to lead us to greatest union with God.
  4. Jesus: Do you want peace, joy and happiness, or do you want your own wills? Only in submitting to the Will of My Father will you have peace, joy and happiness.
  5. R. Mary is there to lead us to the Heart of her Son.
  6. R. The Heart of Jesus is waiting to be united with us in such deep love. Help us, Jesus, as little children being held by our loving mother, to realize the immense love that the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit outpour to us. Help us to realize how Mary is our Mother who guards us and protects us under her mantle, how she watches over us and leads us ever closer to the Heart of her Son.
  7. Jesus: The glory is in the resurrection! The glory is in the new life! I lead you into glory but you must submit your wills to the Will of the Father.
  8. Jesus: This intense union that I want with each one of you far surpasses anything you could find on this earth. Come to Me and sit with Me in front of My tabernacle. Be joined in oneness as I give you My very Body and Blood as your food to eat. I nourish you with My own Flesh and Blood. I become one with you and you become one with Me. As we are united, you become united to the Father, for I am one with the Father and He is one with Me. My beloved ones, the great gifts that I give to you and you are so blind!
  9. Jesus: Consecrate your lives to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary and pray fervently for your priests, for I live this day in the Church. Pray for the priests and the Church. I love you, My beloved ones, and I love My Church.
  10. Jesus: Feed the hungry! My love is enough! People do not realize the immensity of My love. They scratch only the surface and I have such deep love to give. If you focus always on My love, you will be fed. You will know struggles and trials, but in all of these struggles, you will be brought to deeper life with Me. As you experience thorns, I give to you a bed of roses. I am Jesus, My beloved ones, and I have spoken directly to you of those things that I hold in My Heart and wish to share with you. Open up your hearts and your souls and ponder the words that I have spoken here. I truly long to be closely united to you, My precious chosen ones. Pray, pray, pray! Men have turned their backs. They have walked away and in their willfulness, they have forgotten God. I come to bring you new life that you might have it to the full.

Song: I am the Bread of Life. He who comes to Me shall not hunger and who believes in Me shall not thirst. No one can come to Me unless the Father beckons. And I will raise you up. And I will raise you up. And I will raise you up on the last day.

Jesus: Pray for My beloved priests and for the Church, My dear ones. Pray for the courage to go out into this world and be a witness of the love of God that you have within your hearts. It is fear that stops you from spreading this message. You, too, will be joined with Me forever and ever in heaven. I ask you to go out into the world and tell all you meet of My great love for them.

Locution Received After
Recitation of the Seven Sorrows

Jesus: I stand at the door of the hearts of mankind and knock. Many close their hearts and walk away. My beloved ones, pray for the souls of your brothers that they will open their hearts and let Me enter. Your prayers are so important for the salvation of many souls. Pray, My beloved ones! Pray as you have never prayed before. Unite ever more closely to My Most Sacred Heart. Pray always in union with Me and My Mother, the angels and saints, and the souls in purgatory. Pray to the Father, in union with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, in the Spirit. Your prayers are so valuable to many souls. Do not underestimate the power of prayer. I call out to you this day to go as soldiers into this world.

Song of songs 2: 10-13

My love lifts up his voice, 
he says to me, 
‘Come then, my beloved, 
my lovely one, come. 
For see, winter is past, 
the rains are over and gone. 

‘Flowers are appearing on the earth. 
The season of glad songs has come, 
the cooing of the turtledove is heard in our land. 
The fig tree is forming its first figs 
and the blossoming vines give out their fragrance. 
Come then, my beloved, 
my lovely one, come.

Messenger: How many of us could hold our grown son in our arms or watch our son hang on the cross as Mary did?

A Death, a Resurrection.

Think of actually holding the lifeless body of your son if you are a mother, how it would be. Think of holding and touching the flesh once the flesh of a live son of 33, now He was dead.

Picture of Jesus being Laid in Mary's Arms

Mary speaks: My children, many of my children are dying in their hearts. If they should die tomorrow, some would go to the fires of hell forever. I really cry, I just cry out to you.


First Saturday Devotion

…The practice of the five first Saturdays involves: 1) Going to confession, which may be done from 8 days before to 8 days after the first Saturday. Of course, if a person is in the state of serious sin, the confession must be made before receiving communion. 2) Receiving Holy Communion. 3) Recitation of 5 decades of the rosary. 4) Meditating for 15 minutes on the mysteries of the rosary. All of the above (except confession) must be done on the first Saturday of 5 consecutive months with the intention of making reparation to the Immaculate Heart. For those who make the five first Saturdays, Our Lady of Fatima has promised to assist them at the hour of death with all the graces necessary for salvation.

Messenger: Mary promises for those who make the First Saturday Devotion for 5 consecutive First Saturdays that they will be assisted at the hour of death with all the graces necessary for salvation.

Mary speaks: PLEASE preach about this.

My children are dying.

I want to take them in my motherly arms and take them home.

My Son's Heart is the Temple of God.

You can find what you desire within His Heart.

My children, I cried as I searched for my Son,

I cry to you today, I am searching for your children to bring them home to the Heart of my Son.

Your children, many of them, will not even pray.




Message given August 16, 1994

The Invisible Wounds

Messenger: The invisible wounds of Mary: Mary stood by His cross, she had watched what her Son had suffered. She watched this horrible sequence of events that led to this final hour. She did not bleed, she did not have a mark on her body, only the teared, red ridges from her deepened crying. She stood, held up by the arms of her beloved John. This was her precious Son, her Baby at birth, her Baby at His death.

Invisible wounds: The pains of the heart, the sufferings of the mind, the sights seen with her loving, motherly eyes, the knowledge of His love for all!

She appears to me with a face, reflecting the ridges from her deep crying, so sorrowful no words could describe. What can we say for the sorrow of this face? I cannot describe it. It looked as if it was ready to crack! This face tells the story of His love for us.

Her Heart was so torn inside that to know her suffering is to tear at my heart.

The invisible scars: To watch Him stripped and beaten and to silently stand by and cry. She appears to tell us of her invisible scars. She appears and shows me her faces, young and old, sorrowful and joyful. She appears to tell us the story of His love for us. Do we listen, do we see?

She saw His Blood all over. I remember seeing one of my children bleed and he had to get stitches -- it was such a horrible sight. He kept bleeding and bleeding. Blood comes from deep inside, it is scary because we have no control over it. If you bleed enough, you die. My child was bleeding, it was very upsetting! Mary watched Jesus bleed and bleed. It was as though He could not have had all the Blood He had. He stood in a puddle of Blood when He was scourged... --

-- ran from His face and from His mouth --from the blows to His head. It was so awful to watch my child bleed, but to watch others beat Him and make Him bleed more and make His body raw! There is such a bond between a mother and her children, such wanting to protect and help them. Mary helplessly watched this horrible massacre of her Son, knowing He did it for love of us. She could not help Jesus. She was not allowed, only to watch more and more bleeding!

Jesus speaks: Oh, you are so senseless. I write to you of My love and no one listens. Mary appears to tell you how much I suffered for love of you. My Passion is My proof of how I love you. I gave every drop of My Blood for you. You don't understand, this is the reality, that I am God and I suffered so brutally for love of you!

Mary speaks: Turn your lives toward my Son. What do I say to get you to listen? Life on earth is only passing. I appear, I show you my face, you will never comprehend how my Son suffered for love of you! This is the real world, this is the truth that He bled and bled for love of you, that He stood there silently in all the beatings. He accepted this awful treatment. He came to show you the way. I watched my precious little One. I watched and my Heart was torn in my chest. I experienced such suffering, watching this massacre of my beautiful Son, for love of you!

I appear with blood in my eyes. My eyes shed invisible blood during His Passion, to watch Him bleed and be beaten raw by His attackers.

And what does He ask in return? He asks you to love God and love one another. Do this, for your reward is everlasting life.

Jesus on the cross at Immaculata Church

Messenger: I just wanted to crawl up in a ball and feel her pain. This is how I have felt before the last letter August 10, coming home from church in the car. Such intense sufferings realizing the pain! The sufferings started when the priest raised up the Blood -- this is what Jesus did, He shed His very own Blood, the Blood in His veins. He gives it to us now so that we may have His life.

I have experienced on many occasions Jesus' and Mary's sufferings. She suffered so watching Him being taken down from the cross. I experienced such emotion seeing Mary hold the Baby Jesus in her arms and seeing her hold His lifeless body under the cross. I experienced such emotions seeing Jesus nailed to the cross and during the Sorrowful Mysteries and Stations led by Father Smith. I feel immense oneness with the sorrow and experience the sorrow.

The depth of her suffering is inexpressible in words. Mary may have cried, but there is not a way that a human being could relieve this immense sorrow. She endured the sufferings by Christ's side. She did not have His wounds, her Heart was pierced with a sword.


Luke 2:34-35

Simeon blessed them and said to Mary his mother, 'Look, he is destined for the fall and for the rise of many in Israel, destined to be a sign that is opposed -- and a sword will pierce your soul too -- so that the secret thoughts of many will be laid bare.


Last vision of FatimaMessenger: This is the Blood Mary watched Him shed. She watched Him from under the cross. We stand with her and give ourselves with Him to the Father.

Oh, Father, I love You so much, You gave Your only Son for love of us! Please accept my sacrifice with His as my love for You!

It just becomes evident to me -- how He truly gave His flesh and Blood for us! It is so clear to me, like a vision, this is truly His Blood given up for us! I feel this so intensely and He keeps giving me more and more to better realize His Sacrifice.

Mary is so involved with us:. We stand with Mary, we suffer with Mary, we give ourselves in an act of love to our heavenly Father. What an offering, to stand under His cross and give ourselves with the Body and Blood of Christ, in union with Mary and everyone under the cross, with the Church! We offer ourselves up with Christ to the Father!

I feel so connected to Jesus and Mary and God through the Passion It is there I see Their oneness. I see her role as His Mother and my Mother. I see Their immense love for us to undergo such suffering for love of us.

Mary speaks: I am your Mother. I am Mary. I come to bring you so close to my beloved Son. I stand with you at the foot of the cross. Open your hearts to His love for you. This is reality, that He truly died for love of you and has risen so that you will have new life! I am your Mother and I love you so very much, my precious little children. You will never fully know this great love God and I have for you. Meditate on Our sufferings, this will lead you to the life only God can give you.

Messenger: I must understand Their relationship: Baby to young life, joys and suffering. She was a mother in the fullest sense of the word, such a motherly Heart -- her love for Jesus is the dearest motherly love! In order to understand the relationship between Mary and Jesus, I must not just look at the individual events of the Passion and her sorrow, but see Their lives together from the Annunciation to the Ascension. It is the relationship, the bond, the joys, the sufferings They both shared during the Passion.

This is truly where Their Hearts are united -- in the meeting of the eyes. The more I meditate on this, the more I am linked with Their immense love for us. The two Hearts -- They are so closely united! The rosary is this journey from the Angel Gabriel to the Ascension. Her suffering and His suffering during the Passion link me so closely to Them. This intensity is forever growing as They give me bits and pieces of this union between Them.


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.

(End of Mary's Message)



I                                    give my heart to
You Jesus and Mary on this day.
I promise to help spread the devotion to
the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.
