    Deepertruth: The Virgin Mary Reportedly Appearing In South Africa

    in Religion

    Kindly watch this video all the way to the end. Something striking happened here, and I admit that (assuming the video isn’t a hoax, along the lines of the countless bogus UFO videos out there) whatever it is resembles in some ways the traditional Catholic image of the Blessed Virgin Mary. It appears to have been recorded with a smartphone. There is no descriptive information associated with the video except for that it is purported to have been taken in April of 2011 somewhere in “Africa.” Not much to go on. Whoever posted this on Youtube asks whether it’s really Our Lady appearing or a technology-driven light show courtesy of “Project Bluebeam” — something that I’d never known anything about till I Googled it just now. It’s possible, too, if this isn’t a hoax, that a demonic spirit could be masquerading as the Blessed Virgin Mary (see Galatians 1:8). The people in this video are obviously quite agitated by whatever it is they are seeing in the sky. Occasionally, their excitement spikes with startled cries and what sound to me like prayers being shouted. What do you think it is? Do any of you have any info on where and when this happened? This could very well be a hoax. Although it could be possibly an actual apparition recorded on a smart phone in a way similar to how images of the Miracle of the Sun during Our Lady’s apparition in Fatima, Portugal, in October, 1917, were photographed. The last part of the video shows what appears to be a hologram a cross in the sky somewhere over Russia. Whatever is going on here, it’s remarkable. Patrick Madrid

    "And in the last days it shall be, God declares, that I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams; yea, and on my menservants and my maidservants in those days I will pour out my Spirit; and they shall prophesy.  And I will show wonders in the heaven above and signs on the earth beneath, blood, and fire, and vapor of smoke;  the sun shall be turned into darkness and the moon into blood, before the day of the Lord comes, the great and manifest day."

    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.

    Deepertruth: The Virgin Mary Appearing At A Location Somewhere In Europe

    in Religion

    The Virgin Mary appears to St. Catherine Laboure in 1830 giving us the “Miraculous Medal” that shows Mary standing on the moon and the Devil under her feet.


    St Augustine said (354-430), “Since the devil is the head of original sin, this head it was that Mary crushed: for sin never had any entry into the soul of this Blessed Virgin, which was consequently free from all stain”.


    As I kept thinking about this, I just wanted to reach out to God and thank him, even in this place. He has given us so much.


    I couldn’t help thinking of Our Lady of Lourdes, the Virgin Mary appeared to St. Bernadette Soubirous identifying herself, “I am the Immaculate Conception”.


    I thought of the wonders God has worked at Lourdes that even today miracles are happening.  I understand that several thousand people go to Lourdes France everyday from around the world.
    God promised us signs and wonders through his presence among his Church.

    Deepertruth: The Virgin Mary Appearing In The Philippines In The 1600's

    in Religion

    One example:


    In the year 1603, in a small barrio of Caysasay, in the town of Taal, a fisherman by the name of
    Juan Maningcad went out fishing and instead of casting his net on the sea, threw it into the nearby
    river, and instead of catching fish, caught a little statue of the Blessed Virgin of the Immaculate
    Conception about six inches high. Although it was soaked in water, it had a heavenly lustre and her
    face twinkled like a star. Upon seeing this marvel, the startled Juan, being a pious and virtuous man
    prostrated himself before the image and began to pray. He picked it up and brought it home. "No
    one knew how the image got to the river, and according to the old folks, perhaps the image was
    thrown by one of the Spaniards to pacify the ravages of the ocean during one of those expeditions
    and somehow the waves pushed it to the river. Another opinion was that perhaps someone exploring
    the river must have inadvertently dropped it. (Some believe it came from China.)
    The news began to spread like lightning until it reached the priest in town, and the judge that
    represented the King of Spain at that time. Without notice they immediately went to Juan
    Maningcad's house and there they saw the beautiful image of the Mother of God. They knelt down
    to venerate it, and took the image to Taal where a town fiesta was celebrated.
    The widow of the Justice of the Peace by the name of Madam Maria Espiritu, was given the task of
    caring for the image. She ordered a precious urn to be made for the image and kept it in her home.
    Every evening she noticed that the urn turned empty and the image gone, but then in the morning it
    would be back in its usual place.

    Deepertruth: The Virgin Mary Appearing At Herault France in 1873 A.D.

    in Religion

    Sometime after 450 AD (the date is uncertain), the Virgin Mary appeared, after an earthquake, to a monk of Saint-Severus of Syrian origin. She was kneeling at the edge of a rock. The kneeling Virgin allegedly stopped a flood by her prayers. According to legend, the rock kept the imprint of the apparition's knees. Hundreds of faithful still venerate Our Lady of the Kneeling today (Notre-Dame de l'Agenouillade). (The Miracle Hunter)

    Deepertruth: The Virgin Mary at Quito Ecuador 1610 Part III

    in Religion

    With the tabernacle door being opened, coming from within this bright light emerged Jesus, His holy Mother, the Blessed Virgin Mary, St. John the Apostle, and finally Mary Magdalene. In this vision, a life size Jesus standing near the Altar, began to be in agony.


    In seeing this vision, Mother Mariana asked Our Lady, “My Lady, am I guilty? The Virgin Mary responded,“You are not guilty, but rather the sinful world”. Editors note: The Virgin Mary was not saying that Mother Mariana was sinless, but that the Virgin Mary is referring to the sins of the world specifically. Mother Mariana was being called here to do sacrifice for others as a handmaid of the Lord.


    Then a voice coming from Heaven, the voice of Our Heavenly Father exclaimed, “This punishment will be for the 20th Century” (and beyond). Above the vision of Jesus came three swords that appeared with the words, heresy, blasphemy, and impurity. These swords would mark the 20th Century’s cold faithless time in human history.


    The Virgin Mary asked Mother Mariana if she would do sacrifice for the people of the 20th Century and the three swords were plunged into her heart. Consider the sacrifice the Blessed Virgin Mary endured where her heart would be pierced by a sword, so too Mother Mariana would be offered the opportunity to serve Our Lord and His Mother.


    At the end of the vision, Jesus presented Mother Mariana two crowns, one of glory, and the other of lilies surrounded with thorns. The Lord asked her to choose one and Mother Mariana chose the crown of lilies with thorns. As a result, Our Lord and Our Lady would work through Mother Mariana.

    Don, the cohost, gunpoint conversion to Protestantism; Virgin Mary at Fatima

    in The Bible

    Don will retract his statement that Mary got pregnant by accident from Last night's show.  What he meant is that God chose Mary to carry Jesus but she was not set up to be worshipped.  She was a womb that was sacred but she was still a human.  Only Jesus and the Holy Trinity should be exalted.   Don and Jane will review comments said on the previous night's show.


    Jane will read excerpts of 2 of 7 appearances of an angel and Mary at Fatima, Portugal to 3 children btwn May-October, 1917.

    Deepertruth: The Blessed Virgin Mary and St. Dominic

    in Religion

    In the year 1214 Saint Dominic, the founder of the Order of Preachers, was in anguish because he was failing in his attempt to convert the Albigensian Cathar heretics. St. Dominic attributed this to the deepness and gravity of sinfulness of the heretics and the poor example of Catholics. He went alone in to the forest and wept and prayed continuously for three days to appease the anger of Almighty God. He flogged his body and scourged his flesh. From the fasting, pain, and exhaustion, he passed in to a coma.


    St. Dominic experienced an apparition of Blessed Mother Mary while in the coma, which forever links Saint Dominic and the Rosary. The Immaculate Mary with three angels appeared and asked St. Dominic, “Dear Dominic, do you know which weapon the Blessed Trinity wants to use to reform the world?” Dominic’s response was Blessed Mary knew better than he because she is a part of our salvation.


    Mary responded, “I want you to know that, in this kind of warfare, the battering ram has always been the Angelic Psalter* which is the foundation stone of the New Testament. Therefore if you want to reach these hardened souls and win them over to God, preach my Psalter.”

    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."
