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.

May 23, 1999 - Pentecost


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 appears to lead us to the Eucharistic Sacred Heart of her Son, Jesus.

Jesus speaks: You have missed your visitation.

I am the Way, the Truth and the Life.

Messenger: From the message of October 8, 1997, Jesus speaks:


Message of October 8, 1997

Entitled: Seedless, Barren, No Fruit on the Vine

Jesus speaks: I did not put you on the earth and then leave you to yourselves. I dwelt amongst you to guide you in all your ways and the people today spit on Me as they did 2,000 years before. For all these years I waited for the likes of you, My people, and why should you have more time for false joy? Joy is not in the molten calf. It is in the words of the Savior.


Messenger: God has visited His people. Jesus comes, the Almighty God. A helpless baby. He gives Himself, He remains with us in the Eucharist.

Have we missed our visitation?

When Mary went to Elizabeth, the child in Elizabeth's womb leapt for joy at the presence of Jesus and Mary.

Elizabeth who was once considered barren, now bears a son.


Luke 3:4

...as it is written in the book of the sayings of Isaiah the prophet:

A voice of one that cries in the desert:
Prepare a way for the Lord,
make his paths straight!


Messenger: How is the fruit on our vine? Are we barren, now? When we give our hearts to Jesus and Mary we will be brought forth from the womb of the woman more and more in the image of Jesus through the workings of the Holy Spirit and we will bear great fruit for the Reign of the Sacred Heart.


Excerpt from May 19, 1999 Message

Jesus speaks: I AM ALIVE, I AM ALIVE, I AM ALIVE. I AM THE LIVING GOD.


Messenger: After Jesus had risen from the dead, before He ascended into heaven, He appeared to the Disciples as is accounted in John 20:19-23.


John 20:19-23
Appearances to the disciples

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.


Messenger: The doors were locked, they were filled with fear. The Prince of Peace appears to them. He says:


John 20:19-23

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.


Messenger: When Jesus was born in Bethlehem, we hear about peace to the earth.


Luke 2:13-14

And all at once with the angel there was a great throng of the hosts of heaven, praising God with the words:

Glory to God in the highest heaven,
and on earth peace for those he favours.


Messenger:

Mary is the Queen of Peace.
Jesus is the Prince of Peace.

Mary is the New Eve.
Jesus is the New Adam.

We have missed our visitation. Why is our world filled with disharmony?

Listen to the words of Jesus, 2,000 years after He came to the earth.


Message of October 8, 1997

Entitled: Seedless, Barren, No Fruit on the Vine

Jesus speaks: I did not put you on the earth and then leave you to yourselves. I dwelt amongst you to guide you in all your ways and the people today spit on Me as they did 2,000 years before. For all these years I waited for the likes of you, My people, and why should you have more time for false joy? Joy is not in the molten calf. It is in the words of the Savior.


Messenger: God is with us.

Joy is that Our Redeemer lives.
Joy is that God sent a Savior.
Joy is that Jesus is truly present in the tabernacles of the world. He gives Himself to us in the Holy Eucharist.

Many, however, worship a false joy.

We are surrounded by the enemy on all sides. Many have made all sorts of things their gods.

Mary appears in Clearwater at the end of the century, December 17, 1996.

She gives this message, December 19, 1996 from the image card:


December 19, 1996 Message from Mary.
Mary speaks:
My dear children, I give to you, my Son, Jesus, born in a stable in Bethehem on Christmas morn'. He is the Almighty God, the Light of the World.
I appear to you, my children, on a (former) bank in Florida. You have made money your god! Do you know how cold are your hearts? Your money is your god.
I am Mary, your Mother. I do not appear as I once appeared to you. I am asking you today to circulate my message given on a tape on the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, December 12, 1996. Please circulate this tape now. Give it to as many people as you can. I am Mary, your Mother. Please circulate my Rosary Book.


Messenger: We have missed our visitation.

God is truly present and with us in the Eucharist.

Jesus gives us His letters of love in God's Blue Books and we treat His beautiful letters with dishonor.

From the Message of May 21, 1999, I quote:


Excerpt from Message of May 21, 1999

Jesus speaks: I opened My Heart raw in these Blue Book messages and they persecuted My messenger and rejected My letters of LOVE.

Oh, My Heart in the garden was torn to shreds and I sweat Blood for the day, today, when heaven would give such gifts and be rejected by senseless, cold-hearted men.

They smite Me, they reject My messages. You think they hurt you, they hurt Me. I am the Almighty all-Perfect sinless God and the men reject Me and My Mother.

I opened Myself raw in every love letter and they reject Me.

Be one with Me, experience the rejection I felt in the garden. I sweat BLOOD!

Can you not watch and wait with Me one hour when I remain with you today?

YOU SAY, "NO" TO ME.Jesus on the cross at Immaculata Church

I experienced the pain of the garden.

I hung for 3 hours on the cross.

DO YOU SEE ME BLEED?

DO YOU SEE THE EXCRUCIATING PAIN I EXPERIENCED ON THE CROSS?

I BLED FOR THEM.

I DIED FOR THEM.

THEY REJECT ME.


Jesus speaks: My earth, you do not know the way to peace.


Luke 19:41-42
Lament for Jerusalem

As he drew near and came in sight of the city he shed tears over it and said, 'If you too had only recognised on this day the way to peace! But in fact it is hidden from your eyes!


Luke 19:44

they will dash you and the children inside your walls to the ground; they will leave not one stone standing on another within you, because you did not recognise the moment of your visitation.'


Messenger: Father in his homily at Mass referred to the following verse from today's gospel, John 20:21-22


John 20:21-22

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.


Messenger: Father said that peace is so closely connected to the Holy Spirit.

Jesus says, "Peace be with you" and then He says, "...Receive the Holy Spirit."


Excerpt from Apostles Manual, P. 22

Life in the Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is given to us to transform us in the likeness of Christ. This is an ongoing process. Here is a message of Jesus which speaks to the issue:

My beloved friend, tell My people to pray daily to the Holy Spirit. They are to pray for an increase in His gifts. My people must realize that the Holy Spirit comes to transform them. The Spirit desires to transform you more and more according to My image. Those who are docile to His touch become increasingly shaped in my likeness. He performs this marvel within My Mother's Heart. The more one dwells in My Mother's Heart, the more active are the workings of the Holy Spirit. The Spirit leads Mary to place you within My Heart. In both of Our Hearts, then, your transformation continues. The more you are formed after My own Heart, the more I lead you to the bosom of My Father. Tell My people all this. Tell them to pray daily for a greater appreciation of these wondrous gifts. I am Lord and Master! All who come to My Heart will be on fire to receive the gifts of the Spirit in ever greater measure! I love and bless My people! (Message of Jesus given to Father Carter).12


Messenger: The Holy Spirit is the Counselor, the Consoler, the One Who enlightens our minds to know more deeply the truth, to know God with greater depth.

Jesus speaks: I cry to you to Come Out of Your Tombs.

Messenger: In John 20:5, it says:


John 20:5

he bent down and saw the linen cloths lying on the ground, but did not go in.


Messenger: Jesus' burial cloths were left behind.

In John 11:43-44, Jesus told them to untie Lazarus. His face was wrapped in a cloth.


John 11:43-44

When he had said this, he cried in a loud voice, 'Lazarus, come out!' The dead man came out, his feet and hands bound with strips of material, and a cloth over his face. Jesus said to them, 'Unbind him, let him go free.'


Jesus speaks: I speak to you, I am God, I am the Light of the World. Adam and Eve were cast from the garden because of their sin. The light was dimmed. You walk as blind men on your path. Only I will unlock your closed minds.

I put mud in the blind man's eyes and he could see. I opened their minds to the Scriptures and they could understand.


Luke 24:32

Then they said to each other, 'Did not our hearts burn within us as he talked to us on the road and explained the scriptures to us?'


Jesus speaks: You are the poor banished children of Eve.

The joy is that your Redeemer lives.

You must go into the tomb and die to your imperfections.

I act on the soul, I am the Initiator.

The more you think you are in control, the more you are lost, blind and pitiable. I reveal Myself most intimately when you receive Me in the Eucharist. I open your minds to My truths when you spend time in adoration before the Eucharist and remain after Communion in an intimate union.

Joy and Peace are found in Me.

2,000 years later I state: I am the Prince of Peace.

I am the Light of the World.

Mary appears the Lady Clothed as the Sun to lead you to the Light.

Do you remember the great miracle of the sun at Fatima?


From the Spirituality of Fatima and Medjugorje Book, p. 4, this account says:

Then a gasp of terror rose from the crowd, for the sun seemed to tear itself from the heavens and come crashing down upon the horrified multitude.... Just when it seemed that the ball of fire would fall upon and destroy them, the miracle ceased, and the sun resumed its normal place in the sky, shining forth as peacefully as ever.


Jesus speaks: This miracle happened before about 70,000 gathered there.

If the sun came and almost wiped you off your feet, would you see?

If the sun came and almost wiped you off your feet, would you wake up?

I quote John 11:9-10:


John 11:9-10

Jesus replied:

Are there not twelve hours in the day?
No one who walks in the daytime
   stumbles,
having the light of this world to see by;
anyone who walks around at night
   stumbles,
having no light as a guide.


Isaiah 30:26

Then moonlight will be
    bright as sunlight
and sunlight itself be
    seven times brighter
--like the light of seven days in one--
on the day Yahweh dresses
    his people's wound
and heals the scars of the blows
    they have received.


John 12:40

He has blinded their eyes,
he has hardened their heart,
to prevent them from using their eyes to see,
using their heart to understand,
changing their ways and being healed by me.


Jesus speaks: I am the Light. My Mother is the Lady of Light, believe in Me that you will walk in the light and be children of the Light.

I am God, One with the Father and the Holy Spirit.

The Father has sent Me into the world that your joy would be complete.

I am the Savior of the world.

On this Pentecost pray to be set free. Many of My children are held captive by the snare of the devil.

I come to set the captives free.

I am the City of Light.

You come and dwell in Me.

Pray the Novena to the Holy Spirit daily.

Mary is the spouse of the Holy Spirit.

It is through the power of the Holy Spirit that Mary conceived and brought forth a Son.

I am the Savior of the World.
Honor God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Mary is gateway to heaven.
Mary is Mother most pure.
Mary is Mother of Divine Grace.
Mary is Mother of God and Mother of her children.

I give you a sharing in My life.

Mary is the one, the pure and Immaculate human person that leads you to deeper union with God.

Mary is "Vessel of honor."
Mary is "Singular Vessel of devotion."
Mary is "Ark of the Covenant."
Mary is "Gate of heaven."


Revelation 12:1-2

Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman, robed with the sun, standing on the moon, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. She was pregnant, and in labour, crying aloud in the pangs of childbirth.


Messenger: Today at Mass the very devoted priest who is a hospital chaplain told a story of a woman who had to bring forth a dead baby from her womb.

It was such a sad story and my heart felt such anguish as I listened.

Mary asked me to write to you about this story.

Mary speaks: My children, I cry to tell you of the anguishing labor I have experienced bringing forth my beloved children.

I cry aloud, for some of my children will be lost forever to the fires of hell.

Can you feel the sorrow in my Heart to know some of my children will go to hell?

Do you feel my sorrow for some of my children who are on this earth, but do not realize they will lose their souls instead of being with My Son, Jesus, forever in heaven?

I refer to my children as old and young alike. All are my children.

Help me, my children. Help me to bring forth the children of this earth. Any evil that exists in the world hurts all. You must pray the rosary and pray as My Son, Jesus, has instructed you to pray for your priests and the Church and the world.

My Son, Jesus, gives you His prayers in the Shepherds of Christ Prayer Manual. Please pray for your priests and the Church and the world.

I am Mary your Mother. Jesus, my Son, promises you great grace for praying as He has instructed.


John 16:20-24

'In all truth I tell you,
you will be weeping and wailing
while the world will rejoice;
you will be sorrowful,
but your sorrow will turn to joy.
A woman in childbirth suffers,
because her time has come;
but when she has given birth to the child
    she forgets the suffering
in her joy that a human being
    has been born into the world.
So it is with you: you are sad now,
but I shall see you again,
    and your hearts will be full of joy,
and that joy no one shall take from you.
When that day comes,
you will not ask me any questions.
In all truth I tell you,
anything you ask from the Father
he will grant in my name.
Until now you have not asked
    anything in my name.
Ask and you will receive,
and so your joy will be complete.



Excerpt from Apostles Manual, p. 35-36

To him who has eyes to see, they will see - not with earthly vision, but with the eyes of faith, and to him who has ears to hear, he will hear with the fluttering of the Spirit moving within him.

I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. I am the Almighty God. I say to the rocks to fall and they fall and to the grass, grow, and it grows, and to the sun, shine, and it shines. I give to you My love in these letters. Filled with My love, you will conquer this earth, not with weapons and powder or force, but with fires of My love. The fire will wipe out the hatred in the cold hearts and the earth will be covered with My celestial light. The earth will rock and I will appear in the heavens adorned in power and glory and the contrite hearts will be saved. I came to separate the sheep from the goats, the light from the darkness. I come and no one pays Me heed.

To you, My beloved son, Father Carter, I have sent you on a mission to spread this fire that will cover this earth. The hearts of men will turn from their sick and desolate ways to hearts gentle as a little lamb.

There will be one flock and one Shepherd and My staff will rule over all. Hearts consecrated to Our Hearts will lead the light across the earth. This light will be a light of intense brightness, brighter and hotter than any light from a flame. It will be the fire of God's love. The Spirit will move in the hearts of all consecrated to My Heart, and you will know how fire truly spreads, for the love of God is a fire. It is vibrant. It is encompassing. It is smoldering, burning deep within and speedily spreading on the outside. No fire on this earth can ever describe the burning embers that burn from the Sacred Heart of Jesus. No fire burns like the fires coming from My Heart and hearts filled with the love from the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
