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.

Acts 14: 21-27

    Having preached the good news in that town and made a considerable number of disciples, they went back through Lystra, Iconium and Antioch. They put fresh heart into the disciples, encouraging them to persevere in the faith, saying, ‘We must all experience many hardships before we enter the kingdom of God.’ In each of these churches they appointed elders, and with prayer and fasting they commended them to the Lord in whom they had come to believe. 

    They passed through Pisidia and reached Pamphylia. Then after proclaiming the word at Perga they went down to Attalia and from there sailed for Antioch, where they had originally been commended to the grace of God for the work they had now completed. 

    On their arrival they assembled the church and gave an account of all that God had done with them, and how he had opened the door of faith to the gentiles.


Psalm 145: 8-13

Het    Yahweh is tenderness and pity, 
        slow to anger, full of faithful love.
Tet    Yahweh is generous to all, 
        his tenderness embraces all his creatures.

Yod    All your creatures shall thank you, Yahweh, 
        and your faithful shall bless you.
Kaph They shall speak of the glory of your kingship 
        and tell of your might,

Lamed making known your mighty deeds to the children of Adam, 
        the glory and majesty of your kingship.
Mem  Your kingship is a kingship for ever, 
        your reign lasts from age to age.


Revelation 21: 1-5

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."


John 13: 31-33a, 34-35

When he had gone, Jesus said: 

    Now has the Son of man been glorified, 
    and in him God has been glorified. 
    If God has been glorified in him, 
    God will in turn glorify him in himself, 
    and will glorify him very soon. 
    Little children, 
    I shall be with you only a little longer. 

    I give you a new commandment: 
    love one another; 
    you must love one another 
    just as I have loved you. 
    It is by your love for one another, 
    that everyone will recognise you 
    as my disciples.
