THE HOLY WATER IN NAJU FOUND
TO HAVE PURIFYING POWER
Microbiologists in Hungary report after a
The following is a translation of a
letter written in French by Dr. Gyula Molnar, a physician in Hungary,
addressed to Julia Kim in Naju, Korea. Dr. Molnar had joined a Belgian
group for a pilgrimage to Naju in 1998. He took some samples of water from
the Blessed Mother’s mountain near Naju for his friends and for
investigation. After an investigation lasting more than a year, Dr. Molnar
now makes this report with much joy and enthusiasm. He sent the letter to
Fr. Louis Bosmans in Quebec, Canada, to be forwarded to Julia, because Fr.
Bosmans had been the chaplain for the pilgrimage group that Dr. Molnar had
joined. Fr. Bosmans, in turn, asked us to translate the letter into
English and Korean. We also have Julia’s understanding that this letter
is being made public for the benefit of many.
It was with great pleasure that I
received your Christmas wishes with the message of the Blessed Virgin.
I would like to draw your attention to
the third volume of the trilogy of Naju containing twenty pages on the
holy water. As you know, a number of researchers have analyzed the holy
water in the course of the last decade of the past century. Budapest, my
birthplace, has also joined in these investigations since 1998. On the
occasion of my pilgrimage to Naju, I myself took some samples of your
water to my country. Several microbiologists have put themselves to the
analysis of the water with strongly encouraging results. My friends at the
National Center for Epidemiology in Budapest have maintained that the
research with the holy water was never tiresome and constantly led them to
Of course, scientific analyses require
much time since it is necessary to repeat them several times before
definitive confirmation of the results can be obtained. What we can say
with certitude after a year of research is that the holy water from Naju
stops such bacteria as salmonella, escherichia coli, yessinia
enterocholitica and cidrobacter freundii from propagating.
These initial results have been verified not only with the original water
from Naju but also with normal water to which a certain quantity of the
holy water has been added. A series of experiments has demonstrated that
upon simultaneously exposing a test tube of tap water and one of holy
water to sunlight for several weeks, algae become noticeable in the first
one three weeks before the phenomenon occurs in the second. Even so, the
holy water maintains its purity and odorlessness longer than the normal
water. Biologists and chemists are constantly at work to explore to what
degree the holy water of Naju possesses the power to purify contaminated
water, for example the water taken from a river. Laboratory experiments
executed in August 1998 demonstrated that just one milliliter of the water
from Naju purified to the original level 200 milliliters of tap water.
Confirmation of these results is expected from here at the end of January.
Water beetles were found to be useful agents in this process.
All this shows us that it is not our
imagination which attributes these forces to this holy water but that
these are entirely real, even if it is not always possible to give a
It seems that the holy waters from all
over the world have in common the same scientific mystery and that it
remains to us to hope that our investigations in progress in Boston,
Milan, Modena and, finally, in Budapest will succeed in clarification of
I hope that the Lord in His generosity
will permit us one day by means of our investigations to understand a
portion of the great truth contained in these holy waters.
With these thoughts I leave you, dear
Julia, and unite myself to you in your daily prayers so that we can
triumph in the battles before us in the year 2000 as our Holy Father also
