Fragrant oil descends
at the Blessed Mother's mountain in Naju
+ Praise Jesus!
Praise the Blessed Mother!
I give a
profound gratitude to Jesus and the Blessed Mother.
My name is Valentino Hyun-Man Shin from Seoul.
I became more
anxious to see the Blessed Mother of Naju during Holy Week, and arrived in
Naju on March 28, 2002, at about 5 p.m.
After praying for a while in the Chapel, I participated in the Holy
Hour prayer meeting. In the
middle of the prayer meeting, Rufino Park (the Chapel administrator) came
to me and said, “It is raining.
Our Lord’s blood marks (on the Blessed Mother’s mountain) need
to be protected. Can you come and help?”
I gladly agreed and went to the Blessed Mother’s mountain
together with Rufino Park and Augustine Cho.
While we were
working at the Twelfth Station, we suddenly heard someone screaming.
It was Julia who had been praying at the Eleventh Station.
She was lying on the ground with her arms stretched out, as if she
had been crucified. We
stopped working and rushed to Julia.
We knelt and prayed in silence.
A while later,
Julia opened her eyes and said, “Fragrant oil is coming down. . .”
When I stretched my arms toward the sky, I realized that fragrant
oil was really coming down on my face and hands.
Julia then said, “Jesus blessed me making the Sign of the
Cross on my forehead with fragrant oil.”
We brought a lantern closer to her and saw a shiny mark of fragrant
oil in the shape of a cross in the middle of her forehead.
We also smelled a strong and fresh fragrance from the oil.
the mark of fragrant oil on Julia’s forehead, we helped her rise.
At that moment, all of us were surprised and screamed almost
simultaneously, because we found a very large mark of fragrant oil on the
paved area near the Eleventh Station. After seeing the oil, I began shedding tears of repentance.
“Our Lord and the Blessed Mother love me so much that They are
drawing me to repentance with this fragrant oil through Julia. . .”
The oil mark at
the Eleventh Station extended to the Tenth Station.
We could smell a strong fragrance at the Tenth Station also.
We protected the area from rain with vinyl covers.
While we were spreading the vinyl covers, we found an additional
oil mark about 70 cm long on the paved area before the Eleventh Station.
witnessing these signs, I have realized that the Lord and the Blessed
Mother are always present with us and that this was confirmed to me, even
though I was unworthy. My
faith became stronger.
glory to God!
