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.

Excerpt from The Spirituality of Fatima

by Father Carter, S.J.

    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)

September 15, 2004 - Feast of the Sorrowful Mother

Messenger:            In trying to understand God
                        we can try to lower Him
                        to our level of understanding.
                        I have heard ministers do

                            We must go out to
                        understand who God
                        is, based on God
                        the "I am"
                        who He is

                            Jesus has two
                        natures Human and

                             Jesus is a Divine
                        Person. The Almighty

                            Our Lady is a sinless
                        human person. She is the
                        only human person
                        conceived without sin.

                            We have the stain
                        of original sin.

                            We have a tainted
                        human nature
                        this has been passed down
                        to us.

                            To not recognize this
                        weakness in us is to not be
                        aware of our true self and our
                        imperfections. To not recognize
                        that our brothers here on
                        earth, too, have this weakness
                        is to not see the whole picture.

                            Pride in ourselves can keep
                        us stuck. We can
                        be prideful not wanting to
                        admit we have Adam and Eve
                        as our parents.

                            This pride is an enemy.
                        Sometimes, someone is found with their
                        hands in the cookie jar and
                        they won't admit it.

                            Jesus is all pure, He is God
                        He always is doing God's will.

                            Mary is the sinless one, the
                        only human being conceived
                        without sin.

                            In dwelling in the Hearts
                        of Jesus and Mary we go to
                        the New Adam and New Eve
                        we dwell in Their perfect
                        Hearts of love.

                            We the poor banished children of
                        Eve can be so one with Jesus
                        and Mary acting more as God
                        desires in greater purity.

                            Mary and Jesus are not a symbol
                        of purity They are pure we
                        are imperfect we have the effects of
                        original sin on our soul.

                            Generations pass on more and more
                        imperfect ways of doing things
                        like the lady who cut off both
                        ends of the ham and when questioned
                        by her husband, why, she didn't
                        know why. Later she discovered
                        her grandma did it to fit it
                        in her pan.

                            2 generations later it made
                        no sense to cut off the ends of the ham, 
                        but she still did it.

                            Generations of ways of doing
                        things some ways good
                        some not so good.

                            When grace permeates our being
                        we can see the fog can be lifted
                        we can see beyond our limited
                        vision insight into the Divine
                        Mysteries and then we may understand
                        more fully this scripture passage


Isaiah 30: 19-26

Yes, people of Zion living in Jerusalem,
you will weep no more.
He will be gracious to you
    when your cry for help rings out;
as soon as he hears it,
    he will answer you.
When the Lord has given you
    the bread of suffering
        and the water of distress,
he who is your teacher will hide no longer,
and you will see your teacher
    with your own eyes.
Your ears will hear these words
    behind you,
"This is the way, keep to it,"
whether you turn to right or left.
You will hold unclean
    the silver platting of your idols
and gold plating of your images.
You will throw them away
    like the polluted things they are,
shouting after them, "Good riddance!"
He will send rain
    for the seed you sow in the ground,
and the bread that the ground provides
    will be rich and nourishing.
That day, your cattle will graze
    in wide pastures.
Oxen and donkeys that work the land
will eat for fodder wild sorrel,
spread by the shovel-load and fork-load.
On every lofty mountain,
    on every high hill
there will be streams and water-courses,
    on the day of the great slaughter
when the strongholds fall.
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.


September 15, 2004 message continues

Messenger:           What is the light of seven suns
                        he speaks of?

                            The incarnation goes on is us
                        as we dwell more deeply in the pure
                        Hearts of Jesus and Mary, as we
                        become more and more saturated
                        with His grace as we put
                        on a new awareness of God
                        of being more one in Him
                        existing in Him

                             our tainted vision is like the
                        lifting fog, it may come as
                        lightening across a darkened
                        sky giving quick glimpses
                        of knowledge about the city sleeping below
                        or it may be such a new birth of knowledge
                        as to live in such a mystical state of
                        marriage with God.

                            If we reach with the understanding
                        of text books and men seeking
                        answers based on human understanding
                        alone, we can see with foggy vision
                        we can seek with little understanding
                        of the divine mysteries

                            In knowing God we must go
                        to God to know Him and let Him
                        act in our soul revealing Himself
                        in such a way only He can do.


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.


September 15, 2004 message continues

Messenger:        We pray to God to be the initiator
                        We pray to God to be the bridegroom
                        to take the lead
                        to outpour His grace
                        to give us vision.

                            A woman drove along a beautiful
                        river, wide and smooth and the
                        beautiful sun, golden-orange
                        hung like a lighted ball of fire
                        above the beautiful water. Birds
                        flew with such precision created
                        by God to take this flight.

                            The ball of fire reflected with
                        its beauty over the water and a stream
                        of fire-like light shown on the
                        water soon as the river turned
                        the ball of fire rose right straight
                        before her, looking as if it was
                        a pot of gold in the sky at the
                        end of the road, her heart beat
                        gaily at the sight as she neared
                        the golden ball directly over the road.
                         It became larger and larger and was now
                        surrounded by a reddish glow
                        covering a huge circular area of the sky.
                        When it seemed she was almost
                        at the place of the ball the road
                        and river turned and it was once again
                        for a split second, over the water
                        streaming, golden fire-like light
                        like a path on the water before her

                            Then the ball seemed to vanish
                        over the green, darkish trees in
                        the distance like the waters
                        had moved and the sun taking flight
                        like an airplane going to the
                        land beyond the trees.

Jesus speaks:         My people I AM
                        My wonders of nature I have
                        given to you My beauty in
                        creation the touch of My hand
                        in the love you know in your hearts and
                        you drive like the woman away from
                        My light, many times searching a
                        dark path far from My golden-
                        fire like light.

                            My Heart is on fire for love of My
                        people. The refuge you need is not
                        the huts you build in the world.
                         The warmth for the cold nights are found
                        in the fire from My Sacred Heart.

                            Mary came at the beginning of the
                        century to tell you what to do.

                            Your fast-food places line the
                        streets and match your pace fast as
                        you travel down roads that take you,
                        many times, away from My golden light

                            At the end of your journey will
                        you see the light forever that I have
                       for you
                        A light beyond all your imaginings  and
                            you could not even take it now
                            in your present state.

                        You are the poor banished children of Eve.
                       Many do not see the seeds they leave behind
                            in the hearts of the people
                            like the ham and how to prepare
                            it you teach others how to
                            love how to be Christians
                            how to be My beloved spouse

                        How has the world lived out the life
                       of Consecration to Our Two Hearts?
                        How have you answered the call of
                       the Queen of Peace in your world
                       of turmoil have your measures
                       brought peace to hearts and peace in
                       the world.

                            In the end My Sacred Heart will
                        Reign in the people of this earth. I call
                        you in the Shepherds of Christ to spread this
                        message of Devotion to My Sacred
                        Heart and Mary's Immaculate Heart.

                            My Heart was pierced with
                        a lance Mary's Heart was pierced
                        with a sword.

Jesus speaks:      Satan wants to drag you down the
                        dark road, satan wants the souls

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.

Jesus speaks:      Old barns may soon collapse and fall like
                            slats to the ground
                         Some don't ever remember them

                        The new grass can grow and the ground
                         is covered old memories forgotten.

                             I give you talents
                            I want you to spread this message
                            Your days on earth can be
                                compared to the old barn
                                long forgotten

                            Your dead body gone to a grave with
                                a little tombstone
                                the memories of your gambling and
                                money making may have done little
                                to help promote My Kingdom

                        Baptism I came to this earth
                            I gave you a sharing in
                            My life.

                        I gave you sun and moons and flowers

                            You wandered stiff-necked and

                            Oh I gave you My beauty and I
                                wooed you and you ignored me and
                                My ways.

                            I gave you Myself in the Eucharist
                                and you did not come.
