The Immaculate Virgin


Rocked to the core, AGAIN!

Rocked to the core again!

Just minutes after clicking send on my last email, I got the news that the Vatican had shut down the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) from taking any official action on the sexual abuse scandal.

Again, I was rocked to the core.   Some problems will resolve by themselves with the passage of time.  This one will not.  It will only get worse because this is an active attack on the Church by the evil one.

While our Bishops look for ways to increase accountability and transparency there is no number of administrative acts that can resolve this.  Renewal through grace is the answer.  This renewal and grace are the promise of Our Lady of America.

On this date in 1956, the Blessed Virgin made this request of the Bishops:

(from the messages)

On the morning of November 15, 1956, Our Lady taught me this little prayer: “By thy Holy and Immaculate Conception, O Mary, deliver us from evil.” Our Lady then asked me to draw a picture of her first appearance. She also requested a statue made according to this likeness and placed, after being solemnly carried in procession, in the Shrine of The Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C. She wishes to be honored there in a special way as Our Lady of America, the Immaculate Virgin.’

Sr Mary Ephrem goes on to write about Our Lady describing the situation:

From January 1957 to 1958, Our Lady’s warnings came to me again and again. These are her words spoken in January 1957: “The hour grows late. My Son’s patience will not last forever. Help me hold back His anger, which is about to descend on sinful and ungrateful men. Suffering and anguish, such as never before experienced, is about to overtake mankind. It is the darkest hour. But if men will come to me, my Immaculate Heart will make it bright again with the mercy which my Son will rain down through my hands. Help me save those who will not save themselves. Help me bring once again the sunshine of God’s peace upon the world.” To my spiritual director I was asked to send this message: “Hurry, my son, for the time is short but the punishment will be long, and for many, forever. “Tell the Bishops of the United States, my loyal sons, of my desires and how I wish them to be carried out. Through him who is head over you, make known the longings of my Immaculate Heart to establish the reign of my Divine Son in the hearts of men and thus save them from the scourge of heaven, both now and hereafter.” Our Lady, again addressing herself to me, spoke sadly yet hopefully: “My daughter, will my children in America listen to my pleadings and console my Immaculate Heart? Will my loyal sons carry out my desires and thus help me bring the peace of Christ once again to mankind? ‘Pray and do penance, my sweet child, that this may come to pass. Trust me and love me; I so desire it. Do not forget your poor Mother, who weeps over the loss of so many of her children.”

And Our Lady promises renewal as well:

“I am pleased, my child, with the love and honor my children in America give to me, especially through my glorious and unique privilege of the Immaculate Conception. I promise to reward their love by working through the power of my Son’s Heart and my Immaculate Heart miracles of grace among them. I do not promise miracles of the body, but of the soul.”

While Our Lady has a multitude of titles, there is one that comes to mind for this moment; Terror of demons

The evil of the acts at the root of the sexual abuse scandal and constant attacks on the Church are both from the same source – Satan.

Please pray the Rosary for Our Lady, Terror of demons to free our Church from demonic oppression.  And pray the Rosary to Our Lady of America, the Immaculate Virgin that the acts she requests of our Bishops be accomplished with haste and the spiritual renewal to begin.  Do this in unity with Our Lady for the salvation of souls!

By thy Holy and Immaculate Conception O Mary, deliver us from evil.

    I have tried numerous times to find out the status of our diocese regarding our Lady’s request for a solemn procession and enthronement of her statue in the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C. I have had no success with written or telephone forms of communication. How can we keep ignoring the promises made by her to us ?

    I would love to know why our bishops are not commenting on the message of Our Lady of America. As far as I know, Our Lady’s request has never been placed on the agenda for the bishop’s meeting in Washington, DC. I’ve written a comment on the USCCB website, contact USCCB, asking that Our Lady of America’s statue be solemnly processed and installed in the National Basilica of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, DC. I asked that this be considered in the current USCCB meeting in November, 2018. A few years ago, I also wrote to our former Archbishop asking that Holy Mother’s request be considered and followed, if for no other reason, for the good of our country and our church. Holy Mother states that when her request is followed, more blessings will come to our country than their were at Lourdes and Fatima combined. I have never received an answer. With the state of our country and our church, I don’t understand why our bishops aren’t holding onto what our Holy Mother says with every last thread they can grasp !!!

      I agree. We need to learn from Kibeho in Rwanda about the gravity of not doing as Our Lady has asked. It’s a simple request.

    I would like to order a medal.
    Also what is the prayer to say for healing?
    Also I would like some prayer cards
    Please let me know how to order the medal and cards. And the words for the healing prayer.
    I want to give it to a friend who has cancer

  4. Alexandra

    I would like to make a pilgrimage to pray that Our Lady of America’s requests be fulfilled. Where is her statue now? (fall, 2019)

    Our Lady of America, pray for us!

      Why don’t those of us who believe in Mary’s request simply get together and process a life sized print of our lady of America into the cathedral OURSELVES ?

    Lindy, As long as you call on Mother Mary by: Mother of the Holy Child, Spouse of the Holy Spirit, Daughter of God. Then continue your intercession prayed twice (this can be second witnessed by your Guardian Angel; it’s a way to get it taken to God to His Heavenly Courts on His time. Ask in the name of Jesus Christ, through the power of the Holy Spirit. Your request will be heard. . I googled Catholic Saints for Healing and got several good links; you may wish to try that. Jehovah Rophe, and Mother Mary is known for giving Graces. You can ask for the Grace of Healing. The priests have Holy Oil for the sick, mail or fax a photo of the patient with a request to bless it with His oil for the sick and/or to join your prayers that the patient will heal on speaker phone with you on an appointed time & date. Make sure you say your Act of Contrition prior to this, I Timothy 2: 1-2 (in the KJV of the Bible) , the Our Fathe and the Hail Mary. Look for this in your search bar you’ll find several wonderful
    prayers including one for healing from cancer… in your search bar enter : catholic prayer for the sick. 1 Timothy 2:1-2
    King James Version
    2 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;

    2 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.

    You may choose to search for the complete chapter read the Read full chapter. When we offer up prayers of the suffering we’re in the midst of for the reparations of sin in the world and ask for healing not only for ourselves but for those in the world who also need this prayer that they too may have the peace & grace of healing our prayer becomes blessed. I’ve had a few relatives cross over, and in it witnessed miracles, there is a heaven, there is Holy Trinity & Holy Family. I’ve also witnessed those who’ve survived and are still alive. Through each journey God is with us always present. Shalom

      The Church has a great gift of healing in the Sacrament of the Sick. We should encourage those in need of God’s healing to seek this sacrament from a Priest as soon as possible. I have seen miracles associated with this sacrament!
