Our Lady in the 21st Century
1990, Our Lady, through a message to Kenneth
Staloch, asked the Cardinals and Bishops in Mexico to send her Image
in the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico City to the United
States so that she could encounter all of her children in the Americas...
Bishops of Mexico were in a difficult situation because the people in
Mexico would not consent to letting go of the precious original Image of
their Mother. Later, Our Lady offered a solution to the problem by asking,
through Mr. Staloch, that the NASA scientists in Mexico photograph her
original Image to make an exact, life-sized replica. Soon the Cardinal and
Bishops sent the replica, now known as the Missionary
Image, to the USA. More...
Our Lady in the 21st Century
December 1531 A.D., Our Lady came down to the earth (to the place later
called Mexico) and left her own Miraculous Image on Juan Diego's tilma.
Soon millions of people saw the same Image and recognized her as the
Mother of the True God and wanted her to be their own Mother. Also, the
people stopped their customs of idol workshop and human sacrifice and they
were baptized into the Catholic Church. Thus, in a few years, Our Lady
wont the victory over the serpent. More...

A priest who saw heaven,
hell, and purgatory
On Sunday April 14, 1985, the Feast of the Divine Mercy, I was
going to celebrate Mass at a mission church in the north part of Kerala,
and I had a fatal accident. I was riding a motorcycle when
I was hit head-on by a jeep driven by a man who was intoxicated after a
Hindu festival. I was rushed to a hospital about 35 miles away. On the way
my soul came out from my body and I experienced death. Immediately I met
my Guardian angel. I saw my body and the people who were carrying me to
the hospital. I heard them crying and praying for me. At this time my
angel told me: "I am going to take you to Heaven, the Lord wants to
meet you and talk with you". He also said that on the way he wanted
to show me hell and purgatory.

You can do anything, even exercise.
The only thing that matters is that you should be always beside Me

You should never step out of Me.
Tell Me everything, even your thoughts.
Do not stop talking to Me.
The only thing I ask you to watch: not to hurt Me.
I’ll do the rest for you; even the material and spiritual welfare
of your family.
If you love Me, you do not have to ask for anything.
You have only one task: to love Me!
I should like you to understand this eventually.

Our Lady of Guadalupe: `Empress of
the Americas' and `Mother of Mercy'
can proudly—and humbly—say that America is the land of Our Lady.
And by America I do not mean simply the U.S.A. I mean ALL of
America—the Western Hemisphere. Every nook and corner of it has
been dedicated to the Blessed Virgin, and was so dedicated long before the
Bishops in 1846 dedicated the United States to her in her title of the
Immaculate Conception, and asked her to be our celestial Patroness.
In a very real sense they were only ratifying something that had already
taken place centuries earlier. More...

Pope St. John Paul II firmly believed
in the truthfulness of the messages and miracles in Naju, Korea
Korean Bishops went to Rome for their ad
limina visit to the Holy See in 1986 and the Pope John Paul II heard
about the miracles in Naju, Korea for the first time. During
the Korean Bishops’ audience with the Holy Father, Archbishop Victorinus
Yoon (from the Gwangju Diocese in Korea to which the Naju Parish belongs)
said, “In my diocese, a statue of the Blessed Mother has shed tears.”
The Pope responded, “In such a case, it is important to examine the fruits.”
years later, the Korean Bishops again visited the Vatican for their ad
During the meeting, the Holy Father encouraged (or ordered) the
Korean Bishops to share thee wonderful graces in Naju with others in the Asia Continent.

Renaissance of Civilization
by Peter Howard
level of any civilization is the level of its womanhood.”
words of Venerable Fulton Sheen echoed across the radio waves back in 1947
when he spoke about the effects of communism on modern womanhood and the
decision our age must make whether or not it will accept the gift of
woman, which produces the strongest societies, or reject that gift and
live with the catastrophic consequences that come with that. Who can
better reveal to the world the unique gift of womanhood that will make or
break modern civilization than “the Woman” herself, who in her usual
style of beauty and mystery left the world a timeless revelation at
Tepeyac Hill on 12 December 1531, forever memorialized under her title
“Our Lady of Guadalupe”. More...

Lady of Guadalupe is Special
Special Photograph is
exactly the same as the Original Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe of 1531
except that the Special Photograph has several very important images in
it, which had never seen in the Original Image.
Also, the Special Photograph does not change Our Lady’s purpose
at the time in 1531 of completely ending the human sacrifice and
converting the Aztec Indians to her Divine Son, Jesus.
Her purpose in 1531 was limited to a relatively small area: the
Aztec Empire (currently, a part of Mexico), but her same purpose now
covers the entire Americas and world.
This current purpose or mission given to Our Lady by God will take
an enormously power and difficult efforts by her and her children in the
world who help her. More...

of Our Lady's messages

Lady of Guadalupe’s mission was not
completed in the 16th century but continues in our time.
Our Lady said in her message:
my image on Juan Diego’s tilma was intended to bring only those
8-9 million people to my Son Jesus during the few years following 12
December 1531, why would I sustain the miracle of my image today,
459 years later?” (August 14, 1990)
after 459 years, it is the time for me to begin my journey so all, in the
Americas, may see me with their own eyes and know deeply the great love I
have for each one of you, my children.
It will have happened to you what had happened to those millions of
my children, one by one, so long ago.” (November 10, 1990)

How the Missionary Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe
In 1988, Our Lady revealed to Kenneth Staloch, a locutionist near
Seattle, that she desired her original Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe to
tour the United States and other countries in the Americas.
Ken informed Fr. Walter Winrich, a Maryknoll priest in Mexico, and
also with the dedication of Dan Lynch, an attorney in Vermont, the efforts
to carry out Our Lady's desire began. The
Mexican Bishops, however, were hesitating as they were worried about the
possible damages to the Image and also the expected resentment of the
Mexican people for removing the Image from the Basilica in Mexico City.
As an alternative solution, the Mexican Bishops offered to give two
exact replicas of the original Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe to the
Church in the United States, which Our Lady accepted.
These replica Images were called the
Missionary Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe and the door for Our
Lady's Image visiting all states of the U.S.A. opened. More...

"Our Lady of Guadalupe speaks to the little ones, to those who find
themselves marginalized and poor. She never comes to bishops, or scholars,
or rich people, but to those like St. Bernadette and St. Juan Diego.
And she didn't come with any grand revelation or message except 'I want a
church built here so I can be a mother to my people.'"

night of July 18, 1830 was a night that changed the world. It was
the night that the Blessed Virgin Mary ushered in the modern Marian
era. It had been almost 300 years since the apparition of Our Lady
of Guadalupe in 1531. This night in 1830 Our Lady's apparition began
a series of Marian apparitions, manifestations and ecclesial events
that were to succeed one another down to our own day. We can very
well see why Pope Paul VI declared, "Our era may well be called
the Marian era." (The Great Sign, #6, p. 11; May 13, 1967)

On July 3rd, 1907, the Holy Father prepared a list of errors which,
later, were grouped together under the name of Modernism, and condemned.
On the 8th of September following he addressed to the Catholic
world an Encyclical of incomparable fulness, vigour, and clearness, in
which he sets forth his reasons for condemning Modernism.

Sworn Testimony by Benedict Sang M.
During the Korean Bishops'
ad limina visit to the Vatican in 1991, Archbishop Victorinus Gong-Hee
Youn of Gwangju reported to Pope John Paul II, "In my diocese,
a statue of the Blessed Mother shed tears." In response, the
Holy Father said, "In such matters, it is important to observe
the fruits." Then,
on October 31, 1995, one year before the Korean Bishops' next ad limina
visit in 1996, the Holy Father witnessed the Eucharistic miracle through
Julia in the Vatican chapel on October 31, 1995. The Holy Father also
received much information about Naju through Archbishop Giovanni Bulaitis,
the Apostolic Nuncio who had visited Naju on November 24, 1994. To the
Korean Bishops in 1996, the Holy Father said: "Share the
wonderful grace in Naju with other countries in Asia". We
have also been informed that the Holy Father was looking at the
photographs of the Blessed Mother shedding tears and tears of blood in
Naju without stopping for about 40 minutes, with his hands slightly raised
as he would during the prayers of the Mass. More...
To remedy the
numerous errors against Naju
With regard to the miracles and messages received by Mrs. Julia Kim in
Naju, Korea, there seem to be three categories of responses: (1) There are
those who are well aware of what really is going in the Church concerning
Naju and stand firm in obeying God instead of obeying men (cf. Acts
5:29). They do not fear the eyes or criticisms of others in visiting Naju,
attending the prayer meetings there, or spreading the information about
Naju; (2) There are many others who accept the truthfulness of Naju but
are hesitant to join the pilgrims, saying that they will quietly continue
waiting for the official approval of Naju; (3) There also are those who
are badly shaken by hearing some negative rumors about Naju and become
seriously doubtful or turn against Naju. Most such rumors have been spread
by the liberal priests in Gwangju and they seem to have reached even some
of the high officials in the Vatican through the opposing clergy's written
reports, DVD, and visits.... More...
