Below are a few excerpted messages:
December 12, 1983
"Father, deliver us from all evil. With your holy wisdom, Lord, save us from all sin. In the name of all those who love You, Lord, lead us on the right road. Amen. Read proverbs 2:1-11. He who says this prayer during nine consecutive days, together with a rosary, will receive a very special grace from me."
August 3rd 1984
This morning I woke up from a dream. I saw many people who worked in "El Campito" (the Land of Mary). They were making the foundations for the Sanctuary. They were digging a well in the middle of the foreground, because I had told them that from there it was going to sprout water, in the place where it had been the shrub, where the ray of light had fallen.
This morning, when the Virgin spoke to me, I asked Her what did that dream mean and She said to me:
"Many dreams are realities, and this dream will become a reality ". And She smiled.
December 2, 1984
"You must have a medal cast with my image of the advocation of Mary of the Rosary of San Nicolas, and on the other side the Blesses Trinity with seven stars."
September 25, 1985
"My daughter, I will tell you the meaning of the seven stars. They are seven graces that my Son Jesus will grant to those who wear it on their breast. Praise be to the Lord."
March 5th 1986 (Scapular)
"Dear daughter please see that a Scapular is made. It must be white, since that is the symbol of purity. My image will be light blue and pink. This Scapular will be for those physically or mentally afflicted and it will be worn by those who feel need in their hearts, because with the Scapular is the promise to pray to Mary of the Rosary. This is an urgent request. Amen. Amen"
December 15, 1986
"My daughter, because of a few good people, many bad people will be saved. I mean that with prayer, with the continual prayer of true Christians, many will reach salvation. Here, I explain the reason for my presence and the remaining of my messages, that are, in final instance, the Lord's word. There must be conversion for the slavation of the soul to be possible."
February 6, 1987
"My daughter, in this time, I am the Ark, for all your brethren! I am the Ark of peace, the Ark of salvation, the Ark where my children must enter, if they wish to live in the Kingdom of God. There is no obstacle for this Mother, and there will be none for the children."
January 1, 1989
Gladys, many children in these moments are submerged in their own materialistic world and will continue so, because they do not seek the aid their spirits need in God. They all have the possibility to receive it, but many reject it.
I say this to my children: You are victims of the evil one; you are misguided!
Start today, on this new year, a new pace; firm, serene, with great hope and peace in your heart. Mankind will find the Road, if they place their trust in Mary.
January 3, 1989
My daughter, this Mother wants Her Words to be listened to and meditated upon.
Believers, bless the Lord; People, glorify His Name, because He assures His Reward.
May the hope in the Lord lift your spirits; His Greatness will reach you if your faith is complete.
January 4, 1989
I say this to all your brethren: Do not run from the Lord, go trustingly to Him.
It is truly time to do so, since to go toward Christ and to love Him, is to learn humbly how to surrender to the Lord.
Through love, His Truth will overcome. Meditate on it.
January 6, 1989
Later, I see the Blessed Virgin. She says to me:
Today the devil is dazzling the world; this world so belittled in Christian spirit
The Truth of Christ, that Truth that is proclaimed through His Mother, must reign in hearts
Against imprudence, is the prudence that Christ gives
Against mistrust, the trust inspired by Christ
In the face of restlessness, the Peace of Christ reigns
Give thanks to the Lord, because only He will save the people
November 30, 1989
Again I dreamed about the water of the Sanctuary. This time I saw it around the temple and it ran on channels. There would be a meter of distance between the channels and the Sanctuary. The water was very clear. I saw again the Most Blessed Virgin alone, as the Immaculate , and heard Her say to me:
"Great it is the blessing on your town: it is the Blessing of God for His children "
Two days later, while Gladys was talking about the subject of the water, she was given in a locution, the Biblical quotation of prophet Ezekiel Chapter 47 Verse 1
"Then he (the Lord) brought me back to the door of the temple; and behold, water was issuing from below the threshold of the temple toward the east (for the temple faced the east); and the water was flowing down from below the south end of the threshold of the temple, south of the altar"

I dreamed that I saw a source with very crystalline water. The Blessed Virgin told me: "Guijón, Guijón", that in Hebrew means: " It appears in torrents "
Source of Mary is the name of the spring in Jerusalem next to the Cedrum torrent.
The desire that there should be a source from which water would stream uninterruptedly was thus expressed as a beneficial sign of the redeeming presence of the Lord who, through the Blessed Virgin, lavishly offers His mercy and redemption to us.
A commission was established under the direction of Father Perez, composed of a geologist, a priest and two architects.
Water was found beneath the Crypt at the spot where the Ray of Light shone and when extracting the first water, the Sanctuary was impregnated with a strong scent of roses.
The water was gathered in reservoirs and it has been to be distributed to pilgrims since September 25th 1991
