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.

Messenger:         The hurricane was headed for Clearwater
                                August 13 and it would have just wiped
                                that whole little area off
                                because it would have
                                just went straight up the
                                coast they tell me.

                            On August 12th, Jesus gave me
                                the message to beg for mercy from
                                the Father which we did. (Jesus talked
                                to me 2 hours that day. It was
                                so intense.)

                            At the same time the children were jailed
                                on August 13, 1917, the hurricane 
                                was about ready to go into Clearwater,
                                it is also the same time we have Mass
                                and do our usual 13th prayer service.
                                We had daily Mass in China and the retreat 
                                going on and the exposed Eucharist from 
                                August 11th in the evening until tomorrow 
                                August 16th late afternoon. (no Mass on Sunday thou)

The hurricane took a turn, which was not 
                              expected and went around Clearwater.

                            From yesterday's message you see the
                                sign of the rainbow given and
                                remember the covenant God made
                                to us.


TAMPA - The day after Hurricane Charley turned away from Tampa Bay, local leaders didn't waver from their decision to evacuate thousands.

Scenes of destruction in the storm's path across Florida showed why more than 600,000 in Pinellas and Hillsborough counties were ordered from their homes, Tampa Mayor Pam Iorio said Saturday.  ...

"What we saw of this storm was a very sobering lesson about how hurricanes can change course,'' Iorio said. "Next time it could change from a probable course and hit us.''

From the Tampa Tribune - August 15, 2004



Genesis 9: 12-15

And this’, God said, ‘is the sign of the covenant which I now make between myself and you and every living creature with you for all ages to come:  I now set my bow in the clouds and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth. When I gather the clouds over the earth and the bow appears in the clouds, I shall recall the covenant between myself and you and every living creature, in a word all living things, and never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all living things.


August 15, 2004 continues

Messenger:         I didn't even realize about the
                                hurricane. I just did what God
                                told us to do.

                            I know that God the Father is 
                                tremendously offended about the
                                lack of attention given to Mary's
                                Image and the fact her head was
                                knocked off from the message I
                                got from Mary today.

                            Because of the prayers, I believe,
                                the hurricane was averted.

                            God wants 24 hour adoration in China.
                                I was told this, this morning.

                            He wants the Newsletter to circulate,
                                prayer chapters begun —
                                praying for the priests, the Church
                                and the world.

                            God has given us a great gift in
                                the priests, the Church and the world.

                            He is even more offended by the
                                neglect of this gift and the way
                                that many treat the priests, the Church
                                and the Eucharist.

                            Because some men sin who are priests,
                                this does not in any way affect
                                what a gift it is from God to
                                have the priesthood, the Church
                                and the Eucharist.

                            Let us wake up to the truth
                                that we are offending God,
                                taking great gifts for granted.

                            Two days ago, I thought of all
                                the gifts that can come from the
                                life of one priest.

                            My brother, who is a priest, got before
                                the school children 2 times after Mass
                                and told them how he loved the
                                priesthood — what a gift it is.

                            We must pray for the youth — that they
                                will be told about the gift of
                                the priesthood, that for those who
                                have a vocation they would
                                receive the special encouragement
                                to be a priest and treasure this
                                precious gift God gives us.

                            Do you not see that Jesus, Who gave
                                His life for His precious souls,
                                would not give a message to begin
                                this holy Movement spreading
                                the Newsletter for priests and 
                                praying for the priests, the Church
                                and the world so they can
                                receive grace to help them.

                            Oh the gift of the priests.

Messenger:         I had a tremendous experience
                                of Mary's peace today —
                                the feast of the Assumption.

                            Peace is found in doing God's
                                will with all our hearts
                                filled with love.


August 15, 2004

Messenger:        Oh Mary we love you.

                            Oh Jesus we love you.

                            Oh God thank You for this feast and
                                the gift of the Mass and
                                the priest.

                            Oh God my heart swells with 
                                love for Thee and my
                                desire for heaven on this
                                special Feast.

                            Oh God thank You for
                                the gifts given to us in

                            Oh God I love You —

                            I see before me always the
                                gates of heaven and I want
                                to enter in someday and be
                                eternally with Thee —

                            Oh God I long for the Eucharist —
                                I thirst for the Mass —

                            My soul is embraced by your

                            I want to spend the rest of my
                                life at Mass and before the
                                Eucharist as much as I can.

                            Oh God, we pray for our priests
                                who bring us the Eucharist.

                            Oh Mary, Mother of the Eucharist,
                                Mother of our priests —
                                lead them to Jesus — to His
                                tender love — to cherish their
                                vocation — to want to be
                                so close to Jesus — to recognize
                                the great gift given to them in their

                            Oh lights of heaven shine on the
                                dark corners of this earth.



Revelation 11: 19; 12: 1-6, 10

    Then the sanctuary of God in heaven opened, and the ark of the covenant could be seen inside it. Then came flashes of lightning, peals of thunder and an earthquake and violent hail.

    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. Then a second sign appeared in the sky: there was a huge red dragon with seven heads and ten horns, and each of the seven heads crowned with a coronet. Its tail swept a third of the stars from the sky and hurled them to the ground, and the dragon stopped in front of the woman as she was at the point of giving birth, so that it could eat the child as soon as it was born. The woman was delivered of a boy, the son who was to rule all the nations with an iron sceptre, and the child was taken straight up to God and to his throne, while the woman escaped into the desert, where God had prepared a place for her to be looked after for twelve hundred and sixty days.

Then I heard a voice shout from heaven, ‘Salvation and power and empire for ever have been won by our God, and all authority for his Christ, now that the accuser, who accused our brothers day and night before our God, has been brought down.


Psalm 45: 10-12, 16

Listen, my daughter, attend to my words and hear; 
forget your own nation and your ancestral home, 
then the king will fall in love with your beauty; 
he is your lord, bow down before him. 
The daughter of Tyre will court your favour with gifts, 
and the richest of peoples

Instead of your ancestors you will have sons; 
you will make them rulers over the whole world.


1 Corinthians 15: 20-26

    In fact, however, Christ has been raised from the dead, as the first–fruits of all who have fallen asleep. As it was by one man that death came, so through one man has come the resurrection of the dead. Just as all die in Adam, so in Christ all will be brought to life; but all of them in their proper order: Christ the first–fruits, and next, at his coming, those who belong to him. After that will come the end, when he will hand over the kingdom to God the Father, having abolished every principality, every ruling force and power. For he is to be king until he has made his enemies his footstool, and the last of the enemies to be done away with is death, for he has put all things under his feet. 

Luke 1: 39-56

Mary set out at that time and went as quickly as she could into the hill country to a town in Judah. She went into Zechariah’s house and greeted Elizabeth. Now it happened that as soon as Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the child leapt in her womb and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. She gave a loud cry and said, ‘Of all women you are the most blessed, and blessed is the fruit of your womb. Why should I be honoured with a visit from the mother of my Lord? Look, the moment your greeting reached my ears, the child in my womb leapt for joy. Yes, blessed is she who believed that the promise made her by the Lord would be fulfilled.’ Yes, blessed is she who believed that the promise made her by the Lord would be fulfilled.’

And Mary said:

My soul proclaims
    the greatness of the Lord
and my spirit rejoices
    in God my Saviour;
because he has looked upon
    the humiliation of his servant.
Yes, from now onwards
    all generations will call me blessed,
for the Almighty
    has done great things for me.
Holy is his name,
and his faithful love extends age after age
    to those who fear him.
He has used the power of his arm,
he has routed the arrogant of heart.
He has pulled down princes
    from their thrones
        and raised high the lowly.
He has filled the starving with good things,
    sent the rich away empty.
He has come to the help
    of Israel his servant,
        mindful of his faithful love
—according to the promise
    he made to our ancestors—
of his mercy to Abraham
    and to his descendants for ever.

    Mary stayed with her some three months and then went home.

                                be filled with Your love —

                            Oh God today on the Feast of the
                                Assumption we will pray so
                                deeply to Mary.

                            Oh God we love you so very much.

                            And the night seems long sometimes
                                and this time of darkness in
                                our world may feel it will not
                                end, but Mary told us at Fatima
                                there would be this great era of
                                peace and love.

                            We must pray for this.

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.

Messenger:         Mary is Mother of the Church —
                                a big part of this mission of
                                the priestly newsletter is to lead

Mary speaks:          My children I appear to you to
                            tell you of my love. Your Heavenly
                            Father allowed me to come as a
                            messenger — you must make reparation
                            to God for how I was treated.

                            God in His Goodness has given the
                                human race such gifts.

                            The Heavenly Father gives you the gift
                                of Jesus in the Eucharist through
                                the hands of His holy priests —
                                look how you are treating the priests —
                                look how you act about the priesthood —
                                look how you treat the Church and
                            Most of all look how many are
                                treating Jesus in the Eucharist.

                            Pray my little ones, pray hard
                                to the Heavenly Father and tell Him
                                you are sorry for your sins and the
                                sins of the human race —

                                Tell Him you are sorry for
                            ignoring me and destroying
                            my head, my face — the Heavenly
                            Father is not pleased with
                            what you have done to me and how you
                            treat His Son in the Eucharist.
                            Be sorry for your sins — tell
                            God you are sorry —

                                Go to the site in Florida, Clearwater
                                    and pray — make reparation to
                                    the Father —
                                    tell Him you are sorry for
                                        your sins —

                                Go to the retreats in China —
                                    do the adoration that
                                    there will be 24 hour
                                    adoration to make reparation
                                    to God the Father for what
                                    you have done.

                            I tell you as your Heavenly Mother —
                                God the Father wants this —
                                appease Him —
                                you are a sinful race — sinning
                                against a loving and good
                                God —

                            Make reparation —
                            tell God you are sorry for your
                                sins and these offenses when
                                He sent me as a permanent
                                messenger to warn you and
                                you wiped off my face.

                            I am your Mother —
                            I am telling you what to do —
                            I am the Queen of Peace —

                            You will not have peace until
                                you do these things —

                            There will be a Reign of Peace
                                if you comply to the Father's
                                wishes —

                                 I deliver this message
                                    1) spread the Priestly Newsletter
                                    2) begin these prayer chapters begun by my Son
                                    3) spread these writings and rosary meditations
                                        (God's Blue Book, Mass Book etc.)
                                    4) pray the rosary and consecrate your
                                        hearts and homes
                                    5) go to Mass and the Blessed Sacrament

Messenger:     I was just 58.

                        Today it really hit me, I
                            may only have 14 years
                            to live — if I live as long as
                            Fr. Hoff. Father Carter died
                            before he was 72.

                        I do not know when God will take
                            me, but I may only have a
                            few years left to live — it is
                            what He allows to happen to me.

                        Everyday is important. Everyday I
                            must do His work — like     
                            St. Ignatius talks about promoting His

                            We will die.
                            I want to get to heaven and have
                        the deepest unity I can with

                            Life is so very short.
                            Every moment counts.
