Jesus and Mary in Clearwater,Florida
30 Nov 2007
Clearwater, Florida. Some believed the rainbow likeness of the Virgin Mary that appeared in 1996 in the mirrored glass of the building is a holy manisfestation. Others attribute it to the effects of mineral-rich tap water on the glass tinted surface. The Shepherds of Christ Ministries bought the building on Highway US 19 and erected the crucifix in 2000. Around 2003 two kids throws two hard balls in upper glass and broke the upper of the glass.The story of the crucifix. July 15,1998, Daily message from Mary...``i wish a crucifix to be placed at the site near the main window beside my image. My eyes are always on my son Jesus crucified and my heart knows his resurrection from my dead`` the crucifix was sculpted by Felix Avalos, July 5/2001.How the wood for the crucifix was found. It came from three of ten trees. Felix said he did business with a man and the man said he wanted the trees cut down, Felix paid him for the 10 trees, but Felix never cut them down. He forgot about the trees until he knew God wanted him carving the crucifix. Felix said he went back fours years later when he knew he needed the trees for the crucifix and they were still there.So he told the man what he was about to do and then Felix cut the trees down. This began the official work with the wood for the crucifix. ``A prayer for intimacy with the Lamb, the Brigegroom 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 yours favors as you act in me. I love you. I adore you. I worship you. Come and possess my soul with your divine grace, and i experience ou most intimately.
