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.

Jesus speaks:          I give you the sun to light your day.
                            I give you the moon at night.
                            I give you the beautiful water of the earth,
                            the plants, the animals, I give you

                                 I am God, One True Magnificent God.

Messenger:            The sun hung in the misty sky like
                            an orange tinted ball of fire. It was more
                            beautiful than I had ever seen. Its center
                            was white, it looked like it was on fire.
                            Yesterday it was the same. I wondered as I
                            drove by myself for the beauty was
                            awesome and most unique I thought.

                                Today it was not quite as brilliant, but
                            I wondered if it was a sign to me of His
                            magnificent power.  How many beautiful
                            sun rises I have missed and pink
                            clouded skies over the blue beautiful
                            bays and waters and yet He guards
                            the day and the night and illuminates the
                            skies if I think of Him or not. He is
                            the Almighty God, the one who watches
                            and cares for me with His Might and love
                            whether I am thinking about Him
                            or not.

                                I breathe the fresh air, I am
                            gladdened by the trees and other beauties
                            of nature, He paints the skies with
                            heavenly hues so often and I gaze
                            at the wonder and beauty of God.

                                I am a little speck on this earth,
                            this vast universe, I am a little one
                            held tightly in the grip of my Father
                            who watches me and loves me more than
                            any earthly Father. Who gives me
                            my heavenly Mother as my spiritual
                            mother who is there with me, loving



August 13, 2003 message continues

Messenger:             Mary came that day December 17, 1996 to tell
                            her children about Jesus and His most
                            precious love for us.

                                Mary came that day to tell us about
                            the Eucharist.



August 13, 2003 message continues

Messenger:             Jesus gives us this Movement, His
                            Movement to help us to be holy and focused
                            on Him and to be the way He wants us to

                                My life is so short, the days may
                            seem long sometimes, but the days
                            march on quicker than we think.
                            Babies turn into adults, soon mothers
                            and fathers themselves and our hair
                            becomes gray or white and the wrinkles
                            seem so many or the skin just sags.

                                One may make a will and wonder
                            why me, I feel as if I am just
                            beginning and you tell me of my
                            age and how old I am.

                                The little grandchildren make
                            it seem like yesterday and in a split
                            second you see your little child
                            grown with two babies kicking up
                            the waves of the ocean, where once
                            you yourself kicked them up
                            with a baby now a grown child
                            with babies of their own.

                                Time waits for no man and every day the
                            sun silently comes up and just as silently
                            goes down whether I see it or not
                            acting like a counter, ticking
                            off every day.

                                I can't control it and I don't
                            want to interfere with God's plan.

Jesus speaks:            Stop and smell the roses - oh My
                            baby - how many fiery skies you
                            miss each day. You are engulfed in
                            your wares and you miss the beauty
                            of the days I give you.

                                A lady was filled with fear. My way is
                            is peace and love. Satan comes with a bag
                            of tricks testing you and in it all I bring

The Sorrowful Mysteries



The Agony in the Garden

  1. Jesus: Surrender! Surrender to Me as I surrendered to the Father in the Garden. I said to My Father, "Nevertheless, let your will be done, not mine." (Lk 22:42) As you are in your hearts troubled and anxious, I am there ever present to comfort you, to give you My peace. Let go, let go, let go! I am forever with you at every second, at every moment. I do not go! I forever remain in your hearts. Let go! As you live, so do I live in you!
  2. Jesus: I knelt in the Garden in such agony! I saw before Me all that I would undergo, all the beatings, all the scourging. I knew the Father's Will. I complied with the Father's Will as I ask you to surrender totally to Me. Let go! Focus on Me! Do not focus on those things that are parading in your mind, but release your mind to the mysteries of heaven, to My Passion and My death!
  3. Jesus: And My faithful ones, who came to comfort Me-they slept!
  4. Jesus: Indifference! Ingratitude! Neglect! I saw before Me all those who would neglect Me and treat Me with indifference. How My Heart ached with pain to see the souls that I loved so dearly filled with such nonsense!
  5. Jesus: My Heart, an endless furnace of divine love, of divine life, beating and burning for love of precious souls and they do not see! They have closed their eyes and plugged up their ears and I wait and long to be ever close to them! Spread My love throughout this world. You will be met with resistance on all sides. But I beg you this day to listen to My cry. I cry out to you to stand firm. I am calling you to stand up against the world.
  6. Jesus: As one crying in the wilderness, prepare the way of the Lord. I cry out to you to go to the highways and byways. Shout from the rooftops that I am Lord and that I am in your midst this day. Prepare Me a way, for I am coming!
  7. Jesus: I saw before Me all the souls that would be lost to eternal damnation despite all My sufferings. I call out to you this day to harken to My pleading to be about this world spreading My love. There are souls that are at stake, depending upon what you do with your lives. Will you spread My love? Will you be My mouthpiece to this world? I call out to you. You must stand strong and pray to the Spirit for He transforms you from fear to fearlessness. You are My apostles to go into this world and spread the love of My Most Sacred Heart!
  8. Jesus: As I knelt in the Garden, as I suffered so many agonies in My Heart, I was comforted by the love that you show to Me this day.
  9. Song: O Burning Heart, O Love divine! How sweet You are to me. I see the Host, I know You are here, to love and care for me.
  10. Jesus: The world is blind and deaf! They have plugged up their ears and covered their eyes. You must go into this world. You must stand strong. You have a message of My love to give. I beg you to give this message to the world that is in much pain, that has covered its eyes and plugged up its ears. I beg you to spread this love in every corner of this world this day. You are apostles that I send into this world.

Song between decades: I come to you with greatest love. I am your loving Savior. I am your God. I died for you. I come to you this day.





Jesus Is Scourged at the Pillar

  1. Jesus: The blood that I shed when I was scourged was blood red! My Heart, which beats out of endless love for you, is a Heart that is red, beating with a burning fire for love of you. I call out to you to draw yourselves ever closer to My Heart for I am waiting and longing and thirsting for your love. Let go of the little distractions you have this day that keep you from increased union with Me. Release yourself and be totally alone in deep union with Me. See only Me. Let go. Release yourselves! I am here with You!
  2. Jesus: Totally focus on Me!
  3. Jesus: Release yourself from all the distractions in your heart. Be alone in deep union with Me!
  4. Jesus: Just as I shed My blood for you as they scourged Me, My Heart cries this day in endless love.
  5. Jesus: See them as they beat Me at the pillar. Hear the blows! This is the love that I have for you. This day will you be alone with Me and totally focus on only Me? Let yourself go. Be in a room where we are together in close union.
  6. Jesus: And our hearts beat so closely, as one!
  7. Hail Mary ...
  8. Jesus: See Me at the pillar! See Me as I stand with the deepest love for all souls.
  9. Song: Come unto Me all who are weary and find rest for your souls. Come unto Me, all who are burdened. I will comfort you.
    Jesus: I am with you in deep union despite the distractions and all that goes on around you. I am so closely connected with you! Your concentration on Me is important to your union with Me. Focus totally on My beating Heart and the love that I have for you. My Heart beat with deep love as I stood at the pillar and bled dark red blood.
  10. Jesus: It is this blood I shed for you, this blood I gave for you, that I ask you to focus on this day. Think of what it is like to shed your blood for another person. Would you shed your blood for another person? I shed My blood for you. In meditating on this blood that I shed, you will realize more and more the immensity of My love.

Song between decades: I come to you with greatest love…





Jesus Is Crowned with a Crown of Thorns

  1. Jesus: I come to talk to you to tell you the desires of My Heart. As people are blind and do not see, I talk to you this day and ask you to focus on Me and to know that I am truly with you. As you breathe and as your heart beats, I am ever present and within you. I am here present with you. I am the Almighty God! My love I outpour to you. My grace I give to you.
  2. Jesus: I am the Almighty God! I am forever present. It is in your suffering that you are strengthened. I ask you to focus on the crown of thorns they placed on My head. As the blood ran down the sides of My face, think of how this felt! As I sat wounded, My body covered with deep wounds and bleeding, the blood ran into My eyes and into My ears. This is the blood that I shed for you.
  3. Jesus: Put yourself there as I sit. Feel as they spit on Me! Feel as they poke at Me! Think of how you would feel to be treated the way they treated Me! Put yourself on the chair and go through My sufferings with Me.
  4. Jesus: Feel your head as it pounds from the thorns! Feel the blood as it runs on your body! Feel the gashes that burn so deeply under the cloak! Feel the spit as it hits your face! This is the love that I have for you!
  5. Jesus: I ask you to be My soldiers, to go out into this world. They persecuted Me. They whipped Me. They crowned Me with thorns and they put Me to death. I loved those who treated Me so violently. I ask you this day to focus entirely on Me. If the earth falls down around you, interiorly the Father, Son and Holy Spirit are forever within your breast with such love.
  6. Jesus: No person can ever take away your union within with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Your union forever and ever and ever in eternity depends upon the union you have with God here.
  7. Jesus: I call you to sainthood! I call you to holiness! As I suffered this spit that hit My face and body, I call you to suffer with Me all the persecution that you may receive. For in this persecution I am totally present at every second. As your heart beats, as you breathe every breath, I never leave you! If the earth shakes around you, if it rocks and the floor cracks, you will sit steadfast for I never leave you. Hear the small, gentle voice within your heart as it calls to you, "I love you, I love you, I love you!"
  8. Jesus: My Heart is bleeding from the indifference I receive in this world. I call out to you to be strong soldiers. You must focus on Me and this interior committedness to Me.
  9. Hail Mary ...
  10. Song: Crown Him with many crowns, the Lamb upon His throne. His regal scepter knows no bounds. All kingdoms are His own. All Christians come and sing to Him who died for Thee. And hail Him as our Savior King for all eternity.

Song between decades: I come to you with greatest love…





Jesus Carries His Cross Up Calvary

  1. Jesus: Hear the still, small voice as it says so gently inside: "I love you, I love you, I love you!"
  2. Jesus: I ask you to carry your crosses as I carried Mine. The cross was so heavy I could scarcely move. I fell under its weight. I ask you to accept your crosses willingly. It is in accepting these crosses that you will be strengthened for I provide everything you need. Your lessons I teach you with the greatest love. Your crosses I give you out of great love for you. It is in these crosses that you receive new life, new life in Me! Accept all that I give you!
  3. Jesus: As I walked with My cross on My back, I peered into the beloved eyes of My dear Mother. Her face was reddened! The tears from her eyes! I could see the sufferings deep within far more than the features of her face. How My Heart was torn to see My beloved Mother, whom I love so much, riddled with such suffering!
  4. Jesus: I watch you, My child. I am forever with you! I know all the desires, the sufferings, of your heart. It is in your sufferings, your acceptance of your sufferings, that you give Me such great love.
  5. Jesus: How do you love Me, child? You love Me through holiness, through loving your brothers. Always love! I loved those who persecuted Me. You must always love! Focus on the love I have for you and hear the still, small voice as it whispers within your heart: "I love you, I love you, I love you!"
  6. Jesus: You are My beloved ones. You I love. You I want closer union with. You, you, My precious loved ones!
  7. Jesus: Carry the crosses that I give to you with great joy, for they are given to you with My great love. It is in carrying these crosses that you will receive new life in Me.
  8. Jesus: I was crowned with thorns! I was beaten over My entire body! I was always at peace. Remain at peace for you know the immense love that I have for you. I never leave you.
  9. Jesus: It is in following the Father's Will and living in His Will as a little child that you will have peace, joy and true happiness.
  10. Jesus: My dear soldiers, you are being strengthened for the days ahead. I am totally with you and present. All that you undergo I am allowing. I ask you to accept each and every suffering that I give you as a gift from Me to you, given out of great love! It is in these sufferings that you will be drawn ever closer to My Most Sacred Heart.

Song between decades: I come to you with greatest love...)





Jesus Dies on the Cross

  1. Jesus: I hung for three agonizing hours to My death on the cross! Put yourself on the cross. Your hands nailed, your feet nailed to the cross! Your body covered with wounds! Put yourself there!
  2. Jesus: It is in meditating on My passion that you will know of My immense love.
  3. Jesus: I truly hung there to My death!
  4. Jesus: I accepted death on the cross in compliance with My Father's Will and in great love for you.
  5. Song: I come to you with greatest love. I am your loving Savior. I am your God. I died for you. I come to you this day.
  6. Jesus: This is the love that I have for you this day. I ask you to put the world aside. Focus on loving one another. Focus on Me! I fill you with this immense love. Hear the cry of the voice inside: "I love you, I love you." Do not be angry with those around you. It is your committedness to Me, committedness to this union with Me, to making Me the center of your every thought, to letting Me live in you, through you and with you, and at every second to totally surrender, that allows Me to operate in you. It is no longer you who live, but I who live in you!
  7. Jesus: You are My chosen ones, to whom I give My Heart!
  8. Jesus: My Heart was pierced with a lance and what poured out was the abounding love from My Heart, blood and water for your salvation!
  9. Jesus: It is up to you to let go! Always love! I loved those who persecuted Me. I did not hold grudges. I loved. There is no division in love. There is always unity in love. You must love all! I loved those who put Me to death! I surrendered always to the Father's Will. Anything that happens to you this day I am allowing! Accept what I am giving to you today and love it as coming from Me.
  10. Jesus: Among the thorns there will be a bed of roses. Come to My bed of roses!

Matthew 18: 12-14

The lost sheep

‘Tell me. Suppose a man has a hundred sheep and one of them strays; will he not leave the ninety–nine on the hillside and go in search of the stray? In truth I tell you, if he finds it, it gives him more joy than do the ninety–nine that did not stray at all. Similarly, it is never the will of your Father in heaven that one of these little ones should be lost.

Messenger:         Again today the priest told us at Mass
                                "everyone is important to the Lord"


From Mass of the Sacred Heart

Ezekiel 34: 11-16

    "For the Lord Yahweh says this: Look, I myself shall take care of my flock and look after it. As a shepherd looks after his flock when he is with his scattered sheep, so shall I look after my sheep. I shall rescue them from wherever they have been scattered on the day of clouds and darkness. I shall bring them back from the peoples where they are; I shall gather them back from the countries and bring them back to their own land. I shall pasture them on the mountains of Israel, in the ravines and in all the inhabited parts of the country. I shall feed them in good pasturage; the highest mountains of Israel will be their grazing ground. There they will rest in good grazing grounds; they will browse in rich pastures on the mountains of Israel. I myself shall pasture my sheep, I myself shall give them rest–declares the Lord Yahweh. I shall look for the lost one, bring back the stray, bandage the injured and make the sick strong. I shall watch over the fat and healthy. I shall be a true shepherd to them.

Demand Obedience of Your Children

Excerpt from
November 16, 1993 - 4:15a.m

Jesus speaks:  I am guarding you day and night. I am there watching you. Nothing happens in your world unless I allow it. I want these letters out. Spend your days working on getting them together. I am being patient but I am tired of waiting while you do other things. You must tend to these letters until you get them out. You will not be met with resistance! I will tend to all you need. Just keep writing and getting them typed.

Oh, sweet one, don't worry about anyone or anything. Satan is using your children to get to you. Pray when you are perplexed and think of Me and My life and My passion, not the problem! Focus on My love for you, how intently I truly love you. Read My current letters. You are not reading them enough for yourself. Turn to My letters in troubles. Pray to St. Michael. You are surrounded by an army to help you. Don't give in to Satan and his sick ways. He comes in sheep's clothing but he is covering a mighty snake that means to attack you and slip you up. Cast him away. Don't try to be patient with the devil!

I love you, sweet one. Leave all things up to Me now. Tomorrow the Mass will be Mine to reach the older people. They need your songs to be touched by Me. Totally surrender. I will do it for you. Be in touch with Me every moment. When to eat, when to sleep, what to eat, who to talk to, what to do. Take a walk or exercise every day.

You are precious to Me. Keep remembering this. When you walk in raging waters, I am there. I am truly there. Cast the devil out. You are trying to calm him and put up with him. He will never give up. He gets worse. When you told your child to obey-children are willful-be stern and send Satan away. Don't bend the rule. Keep reading the 10 Commandments to your children, and studying them. Get your children to learn them. Read to them. You must spend much time with them in your teachings. Teach them. Don't teach everyone else. They can read the letters. Your children need your talks more than your friends.

I am with you and you, child, are never alone. Fall on Me, into My arms, when being attacked. Don't go there at all. Nip it in the bud. Cast him out. Don't be patient with Satan! Make your children obey you. They need to learn obedience.

I love you. I am Jesus, Son of the Living God and I live in you! Let Me live and act from your soul. I need you!

R. Dear Jesus, I am finding out how I did my will and told myself, "If it was a good thing, it was Your will." I need to care to my needs so I am not tired or hungry, but properly fed. This is Your will that I sleep. My children come after You and I have the job to feed them spiritually as well as physically. It takes just as much time to feed them each day spiritually as physically and it is more important to feed them their spiritual food.

Jesus speaks: Children must be taught to obey. You know what is best. I am guiding you. When you bend the rules with them, it is Satan starting his attack. Get rid of him and demand obedience. You are teaching them about obeying the Will of God when they learn to obey you.

It is so simple. They need to eat right, sleep right, be fed spiritually and be loved. Do all things as you know what is right. You give in because you think you don't know. You do know what to do with them. Demand obedience.

R. I love You! I love You, Jesus!

August 11, 1994

Jesus speaks:  Oh, how I watched you, child. I watched you as I gave you each little sign of My love. I watched you grow in your faith and trust in Me. I watched you suffer and stood so close you could have touched Me, but you didn't know that this suffering would be that which led you to My tender love for you.

I watched you when you surrendered and turned your will over to Me and I watched you cry, knowing this was the most joyous day of your life. I watched you see visions of doors and knew you would want to go through those doors, but they were not the doors you thought, they were the doors I gave you for greater union with Me. I watched you, child, when you wrote down My first letter to you and I saw your confusion and joy, knowing what these letters would do to touch so many hearts.

I watched you, child. I watched you when I showed you My Heart and you were so warmed by this Heart and so awed by its vision, but you didn't know what this vision would mean for many to draw their hearts to My burning love.

I watched you surrender each time as you let go of each little thing, as you were dying to self. I watched you through this surrender grow closer to Me. I watched you grow in this deep love for Me, step by step. I watched our love grow as you gave more of yourself in prayer. I watched you, child, and I loved being ever closer to you.

I watched you struggle in such trials that you thought tomorrow would never come, knowing that this trial was what would give you more freedom and love for Me. I watched you learn each lesson through hard tests and I was so close while you struggled, but did not remove the struggle, knowing you would not learn your lesson if I had.

I watched you, child, through each joy and pain and I loved you silently, always with you, and you never knew how close I truly was to you.

Song: From the day you were born…

From the day you were born, I watched you. Forever by your side, I guarded you, I loved you. I know the most secret desire of your heart far better than you yourself know. I know the Father's plan for you. I know the Father's love for you. I know the love poured on you from the Holy Spirit and how Mary is forever by your side.

I watch you, child, constantly guarding you and your ways and you do not know the love I have for you. You do not know how My Heart burns for love of you. And, someday, My beautiful child, you will know what I have in store for you, My beloved.

Come and be with Me. Grow in your love with Me. I never leave you, My beloved. Remember, I am forever watching you.

For ever and ever. Amen.

                                                           pray for grace to be selfless -

Prayer for Union with Jesus

    Come to me, Lord, and possess my soul. Come into my heart and permeate my soul. Help me to sit in silence with You and let You work in my heart.

    I am Yours to possess. I am Yours to use. I want to be selfless and only exist in You. Help me to spoon out all that is me and be an empty vessel ready to be filled by You. Help me to die to myself and live only for You. Use me as You will. Let me never draw my attention back to myself. I only want to operate as You do, dwelling within me.

    I am Yours, Lord. I want to have my life in You. I want to do the will of the Father. Give me the strength to put aside the world and let You operate my very being. Help me to act as You desire. Strengthen me against the distractions of the devil to take me from Your work.

    When I worry, I have taken my focus off of You and placed it on myself. Help me not to give in to the promptings of others to change what in my heart You are making very clear to me. I worship You, I adore You and I love You. Come and dwell in me now.

-God's Blue Book, January 17, 1994

                                                                My Precious Head -

                            2)   Jesus speaks:  I bled for your sins -

                            3)   Jesus speaks:  The Blood went down My face and
                                                               into My eyes.

                            4)   Jesus speaks:  I forgive you from your sins when you
                                                            ask Me.

                            5)   Jesus speaks:  You must learn to say you are sorry.
                                                          You must recognize your faults.
                                                          Why do you lie to yourself when I
                                                               I am so ready to forgive you.

                            6) Messenger:  Oh Jesus, I love You so very much -
                                                      I see You before me in the exposed

                            8)   Song: A Priest is a Gift from God


                            9)   Messenger:  He wore a crown of thorns -
                                                        He did not wear a gold crown adorned
                                                          in jewels, but a crown of
                                                          thorns and He mounted His throne -


                                                          He gave Himself as a sacrifice -
                                                          He mounted the cross and
                                                          He shed His Blood and
                                                          He died for me and for you.


                           10)   Jesus is the King of heaven and earth.
                                    Jesus is the King of the Kingdom.

John 19: 15-16

But they shouted, ‘Away with him, away with him, crucify him.’ Pilate said, ‘Shall I crucify your king?’ The chief priests answered, ‘We have no king except Caesar.’ So at that Pilate handed him over to them to be crucified.




                            Carrying of the Cross

                            1)   Messenger:  Jesus gave Himself.
                                                        He carried the cross on His back.
                                                        He allowed Himself to be persecuted,
                                                            beaten and hung on a cross to
                                                            His death.

                            2)   Messenger:  Like a little innocent lamb He was led
                                                            to the slaughter.

John 18: 35-38

Pilate answered, ‘Am I a Jew? It is your own people and the chief priests who have handed you over to me: what have you done?’ Jesus replied, ‘Mine is not a kingdom of this world; if my kingdom were of this world, my men would have fought to prevent my being surrendered to the Jews. As it is, my kingdom does not belong here.’ Pilate said, ‘So, then you are a king?’ Jesus answered, ‘It is you who say that I am a king. I was born for this, I came into the world for this, to bear witness to the truth; and all who are on the side of truth listen to my voice.’ ‘Truth?’ said Pilate. ‘What is that?’ And so saying he went out again to the Jews and said, ‘I find no case against him.

John 19: 10-12

Pilate then said to him, ‘Are you refusing to speak to me? Surely you know I have power to release you and I have power to crucify you?’ Jesus replied, ‘You would have no power over me at all if it had not been given you from above; that is why the man who handed me over to you has the greater guilt.’

Jesus is condemned to death

From that moment Pilate was anxious to set him free, but the Jews shouted, ‘If you set him free you are no friend of Caesar’s; anyone who makes himself king is defying Caesar.’

                            3)   Jesus speaks:  They surrounded Me,
                                                           They whipped Me,
                                                           They spit on Me,
                                                           Like an innocent little lamb I was led
                                                             to the slaughter.

                            4)   Jesus speaks:  I did it for you -
                                                           I suffered for your sins -
                                                          why are you so prideful and lie
                                                            when you have hurt others -
                                                                Tell the truth -
                                                           Say you are sorry -
                                                           ask to be forgiven


                            5)   Jesus speaks:  Say the Our Father meditate on every word

The Our Father

    Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.


                            6)   Jesus speaks:  Offer up your suffering -
                                                               be kind and loving -
                                                                not a word I spoke while they
                                                                whipped Me -
                                                                like an innocent lamb I was led
                                                                    to the slaughter.

                            7)   Jesus speaks:  I carried My cross, it was so heavy
                                                            laden with the sins of the world -
                                                            "What did I think of" -
                                                            "I thought of your faithfulness and
                                                                    and your love"
                                                            "I thought of you."

                            8)   Jesus speaks:  My souls are hurting and in pain -
                                                            please reach them with My
                                                                words of love.
                                                            Please tell them how I love Them.
                                                            Spread the good News.
                                                            Oh I love you so much, I am
                                                                Jesus your Savior.




                           10)   Messenger:  And He fell under the weight of the
                                                            cross, but He got up again and
                                                            again and again for love of
                                                            you and me.





                            1)   Jesus speaks:  I love you so much -
                                                           I gave My life for you


                            2)   Messenger:  Oh Jesus I love to be before the Exposed
                                                            Eucharist -
                                                            My heart burns Jesus -
                                                            Oh my Jesus I love You -
                                                            Oh Jesus I love You.



                            4)   Messenger:  Oh Jesus we pray for grace and for
                                                            forgiveness and for healing -

                            5)   Messenger:  Oh Jesus heal us.

Excerpts from The Spirituality of Fatima

by Father Carter, S.J.

May 13, 1917 

    "Do not be afraid, I will do you no harm..... I am from Heaven.

    "I have come to ask you to come here for six months in succession, on the 13th day, at the same hour. Later on, I will tell you who I am and what I want

    "Are you willing to offer yourselves to God and bear all the sufferings He wills to send you, as an act of reparation for the sins by which He is offended, and in supplication for the conversion of sinners?

    "Pray the Rosary every day in order to obtain peace for the world, and the end of the war." (8)


June 13, 1917

    "God wishes you to remain in the world for some time because He wants to use you to establish in the world the devotion to my Immaculate Heart. I promise salvation to those who embrace it, and their souls will be loved by God as flowers placed by myself to adorn His throne." (10)


July 13, 1917

    "During her appearance in July, Our Lady, in answer to Lucia's plea, promised that in October she would work a great miracle so that all might believe and know who she was. Again, the Mother of God told the children to sacrifice themselves for sinners and to say many times, especially when making a sacrifice, this prayer: "O my Jesus, I offer this for love of Thee, for the conversion of poor sinners, and in reparation for all the sins committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary." (11)

    "During this same July apparition, Mary showed the three children a vision of Hell. She told them:

    "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. If people do what I tell you, many souls will be saved and there will be peace.

    "The war (World War I, then raging) is going to end. But if people do not stop offending God, another and worse one will begin in the reign of Pius XI. When you shall see a night illuminated by an unknown light [January 2, 1938], know that this is the great sign that God gives you that He is going to punish the world for its many crimes by means of war, hunger, and persecution of the Church and the Holy Father. (12)

    "To prevent this, I shall come to ask for the consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart and the Communion of Reparation on the five first Saturdays. If my requests are granted, Russia will be converted and there will be peace. If not, she will scatter her errors throughout the world, provoking wars and persecutions of the Church. The good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer, and various nations will be destroyed....

    "But in the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph, the Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, Russia will be converted, and a certain period of peace will be granted to the world." (13)


August 19, 1917

    She told them she was greatly displeased by the action of the mayor. As a result, the miracle promised for October would not be as impressive as originally planned. (15)


September 13, 1917

    More than 30,000 people were present in September, and saw a shower of mysterious white petals fall to within 10 feet of the ground before dissolving into the air. Many also saw the globe of light bearing the Lady come to rest atop the tree, and the branches bend as though someone were standing on them. Later, they saw the cloud depart into the east, from whence it had come.(16)


October 13, 1917

    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)

                                                            Oh my children,
                                                            my Son Jesus loves you so much -
                                                            Come to God as His little Child -

Excerpt from Tell My People
Spiritual Childhood

Mary:  "My beloved priest-son, how I love to enfold you in my arms as my little child! Enfolded in my arms in my maternal embrace, I press you against my Immaculate Heart. I draw you within my Heart. There, through my maternal intercession, I clothe you with Jesus' graces. As you dwell in my Heart, I place you ever more deeply within Jesus' Heart and there the Holy Spirit fashions you increasingly in the image of my Son. As you grow in the likeness of Jesus, He takes you ever closer to the Father.

"Thus, as you grow in the sense of your helplessness without God, the stronger you become in Jesus. Childlike thus becomes strength. The smaller you become in living out spiritual childhood, the taller you stand beside Jesus. Weakness becomes strength, your sense of helplessness becomes spiritual maturity!

"Tell all my children about the wonders of spiritual childhood! Tell them to come to me and I will school them in its ways. How I love all my children! Oh, how I love to exercise my motherhood toward them all!"




                            8)   Mary'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.  

                            9)   Mary speaks: 
                                                          Oh my children, Jesus gave His
                                                                life for you -
                                                          Oh my children, Jesus loves you
                                                                so much.



                           10)   Mary speaks:
                                                             Oh my children meditate on Jesus on the
                                                                    cross -
                                                             Oh my children let go of your bitterness
                                                             Oh my children do not be selfish.
                                                             Oh my children trust in the Sacred Heart
                                                             Oh my children the days of this life on
                                                                    this earth creep on and on - focus
                                                                    on the work at hand to help

                                                            I appear to lead you to my Son's
                                                                Movement Shepherds of Christ,
                                                            I appear to take you to the Heart of
                                                                My Son -
                                                            Oh my children, please listen
                                                                to me and to my Son Jesus.
