    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.

    Benefits and Services for Veterans of the US Virgin Islands

    in Culture

    Veterans of the United States armed forces (Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, Coast Guard) may be eligible for a broad range of benefits and services provided by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Some of these benefits may be utilized while on active duty. These benefits are codified in Title 38 of the United States Code. This booklet contains a summary of these benefits effective Jan. 1, 2013. For additional information, visit www.va.gov.

    General Eligibility: Eligibility for most VA benefits is based upon discharge from active military service under other than dishonorable conditions. Active service means full-time service, other than active duty for training, as a member of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, or as a commissioned officer of the Public Health Service, Environmental Science Services Administration or National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, or its predecessor, the Coast and Geodetic Survey.

    Dishonorable and bad conduct discharges issued by general courts-martial may bar VA benefits. Veterans in prison must contact VA to determine eligibility. VA benefits will not be provided to any Veteran or dependent wanted for an outstanding felony warrant.

    We invite Virgin Islands veterans to share their stories. Stories connect generations and help our young people learn about the past and maybe choose a military career.

    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.

    Water Island, the Back Door of St. Thomas in the US Virgin Islands

    in Culture

    Water Island is the smallest of the main US Virgin Islands, and that’s what gives it its charm. Rather than shops and restaurants, it’s the thatched cabanas and lazy vibe of idyllic beaches like Honeymoon Beach that are its main draw. Away from the beach, you can tour the underground tunnels and watchtowers of Fort Segarra, built during WWII. Getting around the island is best by bicycle or golfcart.

    Around 160 people are fortunate enough to live on Water Island, but the volcanic island remains undeveloped.Facilities are limited to a few food outlets, dive shops and charters, a beach bar, fishing operator, & ferry dock. The US Virgin Island’s 4th island, Water Island only joined the group relatively recently, in 1996, and so far it’s kept its low-key atmosphere & local character. A 10-minute ferry ride from Charlotte Amalie, it lies southwest of the capital in the harbor, adjacent to Hassel Island.

    Virgin Islands Campground is an eco-sensitive resort with self-contained cottages set on pristine, 500-acre Water Island, in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Known for its natural charm, Water Island is a secluded getaway that should be at the top of your Caribbean vacation list. Spend a quiet day looking out over the ocean from your cottage’s private terrace. 

    A leisure 5-minute walk to idyllic Honeymoon Beach will have you snorkeling & sunbathing. In need of even more adventure? Visit rugged and secluded Limestone Bay, also just a quick trek down from your cabin.

    The Beaches of the Virgin Islands: St. John

    in Culture

    Most visitors and locals will agree that when it comes to beaches on St. John a 'good to best' scale just would not do. The scale for describing St. John's beaches is 'Great', 'Greater' and 'It's a secret so I am not telling anyone'. All beaches on St. John are open to the public. Beachfront property however, in many cases is private and a few popular beaches have hotels nearby. Respect private property when accessing beaches. It is illegal to collect shells from beaches in the Virgin Islands; shells are confiscated at airport customs. There are no clothing-optional beaches in the Virgin Islands.

    General Beach Information:

    Don’t feed marine life or sea birds. Food not naturally in their diet, like various human foods, can create health problems for these animals.

    All beaches in the U.S. Virgin Islands are open to the public. Beyond a beach's tree line however is typically private property.

    Resort beaches are open to the public; only some, however, rent chairs and water sports gear to non-guests.

    Swimming pools and similar resort amenities are typically reserved for registered-guests only.

    Protect yourself from the sun. Wear sun block, a hat and sunglasses.

    Sun, rum, and fun can spell dehydration; so drink plenty of water.

    There are no clothing optional beaches; public nudity is illegal.

    Removing shells and sand from beaches is illegal.
