    Deepertruth: The Virgin Mary and The Philippines Part II

    in Religion

    Last week John Carpenter looks at the posibility of Mother Mary appearing in the Philippines between 1988-1993.  It is still under investigation, so we can't say this is total fact, but we are looking at the information that is being studied.  Many signs reported match many other authorized Marian apparitions.  An estimated one million people gathered in a small Philippine town north of Manila on 6 March to witness a visitation of the Virgin Mary. Many people in the crowd, including top Philippine government officials, journalists, and the local Catholic bishop - acting as a representative of the Pope - attested to seeing a silhouette resembling the Virgin Mary appear above a guava tree for approximately five seconds. This was followed several minutes later by flashes of red, yellow and blue lights moving towards a "dancing sun".

    The events took place at Apparition Hill in the small town of Agoo, in La Union province. A visionary boy, 16-year-old Judiel Nieva, says that the Virgin Mary has been appearing to him, and giving him messages, on the first Saturday of every month and on special religious feasts since 1989. The pilgrims gathered in Agoo on 6 March because the boy said the Virgin would appear at that particular place and time.

    About a month earlier, a statue of the Virgin Mary owned by Judial Nieva's family began regularly weeping tears of blood. The phenomenon was witnessed by thousands during a noontime mass in February. An assistant to the nationâs President said that the statue was brought before his critically ill wife on two occasions, and both times she unexpectedly recovered. There are also reports that Communion wafers turn to flesh and blood in Nievaâs mouth. Another resident of the area said that his statue of the Virgin was also "shedding tears, which later turn blood red."

    Deepertruth: The Virgin Mary Appears In The Ukraine 1987

    in Religion

    The major story, here, for now, is Ukraine -- where a clash between protesters and a Russian-backed president (now deposed, but under Russian protection) has raised the specter of civil war and in a worst-case scenario, an explosion between Ukraine and Russia, which might drag other nations, including the U.S., into the conflict (America warned Russia this week not to interfere with internal Ukrainian matters, as Russian troops have lined near the border).


    But antagonisms between Ukraine -- once part of the Soviet Union -- and Russia have simmered for a century (peaking before and during World War Two when the U.S.S.R. persecuted Christians, especially Catholics, and starved Ukraine, causing millions of deaths). Ukraine split from the Soviet bloc during the incredible break up of the Soviet Union, gaining its independence several years after the apparitions.


    Along with thousands of others, Terelya was witness to this manifestation of the Blessed Mother in the rural hamlet of Hrushiw south of Lviv, where Mary first appeared on April 26, 1987, to an eleven-year-old peasant, Maria Kizyn -- a girl who had absolutely no guile and who never contradicted her testimony of first seeing Mary on the balcony of a domed wood chapel called Blessed Trinity, dressed in black.


    The events were first reported in America by The New York Times on October 13, 1987 -- a major feast day of the Fatima apparitions, which bore "secrets" (again "coincidentally") focusing on Russia, atheism, and the possibility (in the vaunted third secret) of an angel "torching" the world.

    Deepertruth: Journey With The Virgin Mary As She Appeared at Ecuador 1988

    in Religion

     On August 28, 1988, in Cuenca Ecuador the Blessed Virgin Mary first appeared to a young woman named Patricia "Pachi" Talbot. Our Lady identified herself, saying: "I am the Guardian of the Faith".


        These apparitions continued until March 3, 1990. Patricia, twenty-seven today, was sixteen years old when the Blessed Mother chose her as an instrument to spread her messages to all Her people. Patricia was a model, a student, and throughout the apparitions, she continued with her studies. She has since married Andres Vega and they live in Cuenca. Here Patricia continues to strive to fulfill the particular mission the Blessed Mother gave her-service to the poor.


        The apparitions began in Patricia's bedroom and continued in various churches, chapels, and her home until June of 1989 when they were moved to a Garden spot in El Cajas, high in the Andes Mountains. When moved to the Garden Spot in El Cajas, the Mother of God's visits normally occurred on Thursdays and Saturdays, often accompanied by phenomena such as bright lights in the sky, the sun "dancing", and on more than one occasion people's hands and faces sparkled with a golden glow, as if from glitter, which could not be rubbed off. Yet here, as in Medjugorje and in other reported apparition sites around the world, the importance was not the supernatural phenomena, but the interior conversion of heart and the abundant graces God was offering to His people, through His Most Holy Mother.

    Deepertruth: Visions of Blessed Virgin Mary in San Nicholas, Argentina Part II

    in Religion

    Back for a second week going to San Nicholas, Argentina.  On the 13th of October, anniversary of the last appearance at Fatima, the Virgin spoke for the first time:  


    You have done well.  Do not be afraid.  Come to see me.  I will take you by the hand and you will travel many paths.  


    After the message the Virgin refers to a message from the Bible, the word of God that illuminates all word.  With this text she is encouraged to fulfill her mission, to take her messages although difficulties may appear.  Thereafter, she begins to receive other messages frequently.  On October 19th, She said to her: 


    Rebels are unjust and humble the servants of the Lord.  Seek help and you will receive it.  Do not fear.  Nothing will happen to you.  The Lord leaves nothing at random. 


    On October 25th, Gladys goes for the second time, since the apparitions started, to the city of Rosario, seat of the archbishop, city consecrated to Our Lady of the Rosary. That day, exactly a month to the day of the first apparition, the Virgin appears to her and She tends a white rosary to her:  Receive this rosary from my hands and keep it forever and ever.  I am happy because you are obedient.  And be happy because God is with you.  


    The messages continue, with frequent references to the Sacred Scriptures. It is that Mary leads to the word of God and this way continues her invitation, as she did to the servants of Cana:  "Do all that He tells you".  This one is a new and singular fact in the history of the Marian apparitions.

    The Blessed Virgin Mary

    in Religion

    Rebroadcast of the long running radio program, "The Ave Maria Hour", a presentation of the Franciscan Friars of the Atonement. www.AtonementFriars.org


    The Blessed Virgin Mary - This  Ave Maria episode of the life of the Blessed Virgin Mary begins with the prophecies of Isaiah and others, and takes us through her life.  The angel appears to Mary and tells her she will bear a Son and call Him Jesus.  Her response is to say “let it be done to me according to Thy will.” As she raised her son, she kept in her heart these words, “Teach me thy way oh Lord and I will walk in the Truth.”  Mary receives the body of her Son Jesus at Calvary, shedding tears over his body and for all the dead who will die in His name so that others may live.  She becomes the Queen of Martyrs, is taken into heaven and her abode is in the full assembly of Saints.  Jesus gives us his gentle mother, mother of Mercy and her compassion for all who call upon Him.
