Most people are not aware of a series of apparitions and messages which took place from March 25, 1945 until May 31, 1959. These apparitions and messages were given to a woman named Ida Peerdeman in Amsterdam, Holland. The importance of these messages is inestimable for they deal precisely with our times. They contain communications of both a spiritual and secular nature, told beforehand, the fulfillment of which we have seen in our very own time to a great degree and their fulfillment is not yet complete. These messages are intimately connected with other apparitions and messages of Our Lady but most especially with those of Fatima for the messages of the Lady of All Nations deal specifically with the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart. At Fatima Our Lady told the children, " ...but in the end my Immaculate Heart will triumph!" The revelations to Ida Peerdeman by the Lady of All Nations portray in detail the events that precede and that will bring about the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart, most importantly the declaration of the final Marian dogma of Mary as The Lady of All Nations: Coredemptrix, Mediatrix, and Advocate. These messages are also unique in that the authenticity of the messages has been established by the fulfillment of their content in our own time. Once Fr. Frehe, Ida Peerdeman's spiritual director, requested of Ida that she ask the Lady for a sign or a miracle whereby all would know that the messages were authentic. The Lady replied, " My signs are contained in my words." As the reader shall see this is all so true. Ida also recounts what she calls Eucharistic Experiences. They begin in 1958 and extend in time beyond the apparitions and messages until 1984. The Lady had promised Ida that she would live to see the approval of the devotion to the Lady of All Nations. On May 31, 1996 Bishop Hendrik Bomers, Bishop of Haarlem - Amsterdam gave approval to the Lady of All Nations in a pastoral letter. On June 17, 1996, at the age of 90, Ida Peerdeman, having perservered till the end, despite many sufferings and trials including at times public ridicule, passed on to be with the Lady who loved her so dearly.
The first of the apparitions and messages of the Lady of All Nations occurred on March 25, 1945, the Feast of the Annunciation. Ida Peerdeman was forty years old at the time and worked in the office of an industrial firm in Amsterdam. One must imagine the circumstances under which these apparitions and messages began. The Second World War was not yet over. The devastation of the war was all around. The evil of the Nazis was still a stark reality fresh and burning in the minds of all who had come in contact with it. Europe was in ruins. Germany had been decimated. The first apparitions took place in Amsterdam, however, many of the early apparitions also took place in Germany where Ida sometimes visited. As a matter of fact, the prayer of the Lady of All Nations was revealed to Ida in Germany. The Blessed Mother had done this deliberately and expressed Her love for Her poor and lost German children who suffered under the burden of their own errors at that time and who would again suffer through more political deceptions in the future. This moment in history was a time of great uncertainty not only for Germany but for all nations. The world would never be the same. The heart of darkness had been revealed in all of its horror.
Although Ida Peerdeman was the recipient of these apparitions and messages, but there were often individuals present during the apparitions. Ida would either slowly repeat the words of the Lady as they were given as in a dictation or she would later recount the messages that the Lady gave her. The messages were always carefully written down and a safeguarded record of them was kept. The individuals who wrote down these messages and other individuals who read them are witnesses to the contents of these prophesies prior to their fulfillment. The record which was kept verified the authenticity of the revelations as the events phophesied came to pass. The events involved often did not take place until years, even decades, after they were revealed to Ida. Among such events were:

Apparitions And Messages
First Apparition, March 25, 1945
One of Ida's sisters and Fr. Frehe, her spiritual director, were present at the first apparition which took place in her home. She was drawn to an adjacent room where she recounts: " I see on my left some body standing over me in a long white garment, full of womanly grace. I understand her to be the Blessed Virgin. She lifts up three, then four, and finally five fingers while saying to me, ' The 3 stands for March, the 4 for April, and the 5 for May 5th.' (Dates referring to the end of the Second World in the European theater. For example, on May 5, 1945 the war officially ended in the Netherlands.) Then She shows me Her Rosary and says, ' This has saved you. Persevere to the end' After a brief silence She adds, ' The prayer is to be made known everywhere.'
" Then in front of me I see nothing but soldiers, many of them Allies and the Blessed Virgin is pointing to them. She takes the crucifix of the Rosary in Her hand and points at it and then again to the soldiers.
" I am given to understand that the Cross must become the support of the lives of those soldiers, for the voice continues, ' They will soon go home now, these here', and she points to the troops.
" I ask , ' Are you Mary?'
She smiles and answers, ' They will call me ' The Lady, Mother .' ' The figure walks past me and I look at the palm of my hand. A Cross is being laid down before me and I have to take it up. I do so very slowly; it is heavy. All at once everything is gone."
Sixth Apparition - January 3, 1946
...Then I see the Cross once more in the midst of the world and the Lady is pointing to it. I have to carry it, but I turn my head away; it is as if I were mankind and refused the Cross, "No", says the Lady, " it must be carried and placed in the center; there will be a certain category if people who will fight hard for it and I shall lead them on to that!"...
After that I see the Pope again before me and quite an number of clerics and other gentlemen around him. " It is as if they were in conference, " I say. The Lady speaks to me again. " This is the spiritual battle that is being carried on all over the world. It is much worse than the actual wars now being waged, because it is undermining mankind."
Fifth Apparition - October 7, 1945
I see the sun and the half moon; they are standing in the Far East. In China I see the red flag. After that I see Mahometans and all the Eastern peoples. Above all those nations, I see red on the one hand and black on the other; but there is far less black. I hear the voice saying, " It looks as if the latter is dwindling down to a minimum." (This is a prophecy of the communist take over in China in 1947.)
Ninth Apparition - March 29, 1946
Once more I see the Lady standing there. She has a Child in Her arms...The Lady turns to me and says, " I want to bring HIM ( indicating the Child ) into this word again." But while speaking thus, She keeps on shaking Her head as if to say, " But they don't want Him!.'
I look at the Child and as I look, the Child changes into a Cross. All at once the Cross falls to the ground before me and breaks into pieces. I look at the world and see it is all in darkness. Then I hear the Lady call, " Do bring Him back to mankind," and She points to the Cross.
I see the Cross planted in the middle of the world...The Lady says, " There must be a return to Him first of all, before true peace can come," and She stresses the word " true."
Then words are forming around the Lady, as in a curve. I have to read them aloud:
" Truth". " Again," I say and the Lady nods, " Yes." This is in the middle; I read on the left " Justice", and on the right " Charity."
...The Lady says, " Religion will have a hard struggle and they want to tread it under foot. This will be done so cunningly that scarcely anyone will notice it. But I give warning," and She looks very serious and points to the chalice. Suddenly I hear Her say, "Christus Regnat (Christ Reigns)."
Again, I see the Lady seated on Her throne...and now I see the Anglican Church, a Russian Church, an Armenian Church and many more besides. They are spinning round together. At this, the Lady looks worried and I hear Her say, " Rome be on the alert!" She stresses these words and clenches Her fist.
Tenth Apparition - June 9, 1946
Once again the Lady stands before me. She shakes a warning finger and She seems to say to the world, " Urbi et Orbi, that is for the moment the most important thing." She carries a little Child with Her in a shawl...The Lady points to the Child and says, " Let those who are for HIM be watchful! I cannot give sufficient warning."..." Righteousness, Truth, and Love are not to be found among men." After that the Lady gazing intently in front of Her, says, " Disaster upon disaster! For a second time I tell you: as long as these are missing there can be no true peace."
Then the Lady says, " By praying and not only by praying, but especially by working for the right end...Work and watch!"..." I predict another great catastrophe for the world."
Suddenly I see a Cardinal's hat lying before me and above it an X-sign appears. There will be a struggle in Rome against the Pope. I see many bishops and I hear a voice say, " Catastrophic!"
Fourteenth Apparition - December 26, 1947
I see the Lady and She says, " Disasters will overtake the world - from North to South, from South to West, from West to East...In and around Jerusalem, heavy battles will be waged...Great misery and distress are imminent...Economic warfare, boycottings, currency crises, catastrophes."
Now I see something like a cigar or a torpedo flying past me so rapidly that I can scarcely discern it. Its color seems to be of aluminum. All of a sudden I see it burst open. I feel with my hand and have a number of indefinable sensations. The first is a total loss of sensibility. I live and yet I do not live.
Then I see faces before me ( swollen faces ) covered with dreadful ulcers, as it were a kind of leprosy. Then I am aware of terrible diseases ( cholera and so on ).
Then tiny little black things are floating around me: I cannot distinguish them with my eyes and it is as if I were made to look at them through something ( a microscope ) and now I see slides of extraordinay brilliancy and upon them those little things enlarged. I do not know how I am to interpret this. " Bacilli ?" I ask. The Lady says, " It is hellish!"
I feel my face swelling and it is swollen when I touch it, all bloated and quite stiff. I can no longer move. Then I hear the Lady again, saying, " Just think! This is what they are preparing!" and then very softly, "Russia, but others as well." Finally, the Lady says, " Nations be warned." - and now the Lady disappears.
Sixteenth Apparition - May 7, 1949
The Lady then says, " Russia will try to deceive everyone in everything she does. There will be a complete revolution," and I see the world, as it were, rotate once. Then the Lady says, " Nature, too, will change!"
Nineteenth Apparition - December 3, 1949
...Once more I see the Pope and the Lady says, " He has but to command and it will happen." Then I see Italy and strange clergymen of high rank: Cardinals, Bishops, and so forth. They are gathered in a large council hall ( the Second Vatican Council), and it is as if the Pope is drawing up a degree. Then again I see a link between the upper and lower classes. " That is what we must strive after," the Lady says. " More I cannot say, as yet. It will become clear over the years"...
Twentieth Apparition - December 16, 1949
...Then it is as though she makes me read a blackboard on which is written: 50 - 51 - 53, and she says, " During this period there will be warfare and disaster." ( Prophecy of the Korean War. )
After this I see two rows of churches before me. the Lady seems to walk towards the front row and lightly pass Her hand over it. The churches fall en masse and disappear. then the Lady, drawing a rhombic frame for me, says, " Child this is the center." Now I see a dome and around it a wall inthe form She drew it. That dome is St. Peter's. A narrow stream runs round it, bordered in a thin black line. Again the Lady says, " This is the center," and the Lady's fingers move to and fro very slowly, very heavily. " Let that remain the center! The minds of this world are intent on destroying the center. I will help you."...I see Germany on my right, I hear the Lady say, " Take heed Germany! " I see a triangle drawn over Germany (referring to the Masonic symbol) and the Lady says, "The spirit of the triangle tries to enter under a different form. The people are good, but they are pulled hither ant thither and find no way out. Poor Germany! They will be and are the dupe of that other big one (Russia)."
Twenty-Second Apparition - May 27, 1950
I see the Lady standing there and, looking at Her hands, She say to me, " Child, I still see empty hands. I ask you to pass on that it is really mine firm determination to form a group from among that core of people that want the good and that do good.
...The opposite camp too is working hard to form as great a center as this."
Twenty-Third Apparition - August 15, 1950
...I hear the Lady say, " No things are not in order at all there. Where are the Encyclicals?" ...Next I see St. Peter's and hear the Lady say, " Do you know your power at all? Do you know your teaching?" then once again the Lady writes, " Encyclical" and She says, " Alright then see that they are carried out. Let their teaching spread to the left and to the right, to the top and to the bottom. Do you realize ( and She clenches Her fist) how powerful this force is?"
Twenty-Fourth Apparition - November 16, 1950
I see the Lady standing on the globe. She points at the globe and says to me, " My child, I am standing on this globe, because I want to be called ' the Lady of All Nations .' " The words ' of All Nations ' arrange themselves round her in a semicircle. The Lady goes on to say, " I have told you: Mission work at home .... There are so many sick souls here and they must be saved. Why do so many priests from Germany go to the foreign missions? Let them stay here, where so much work is to be done! ... Germany must start to regain unity. Let a beginning be made by everyone for himself in his own home. The children must be reunited with father and mother. Let them kneel down together again and say the Rosary ... Make it a habit at home, and then it will spread into the world ... This can be advanced through propaganda and more preaching about it in the churches. Altogether there must be more action." ( And all the while it seems as though the Lady pushes the people forward.)..." A great disturbance will be experienced all over the world. The Russians will not leave things the way they are at present; and therefore, I say, I am the Lady of All Nations."
Twenty-Sixth Apparition, Feruary 11, 1951
" A decree shall and must be issued, ordaining that the people need no longer have been fasting before going to Communion. There are so many people who, just when they are in church, feel a tremendous need to go to Communion, and are debarred from it because they have not been fasting." (Those of us who are old enough will remember that the rule of fasting before receiving Holy Communion required fasting from the midnight before the day upon which one was to receive. This was changed during the pontificate of Paul VI to a three hour fast and later by the same Pope to the one hour fast that applies today. Here Our Lady is prophesying the event fourteen years prior to is occurrence. )
Twenty-Seventh Apparition, Sunday, February 11, 1951
I see a bright light and then I see the Lady standing there. She says, " I am the Lady - Mary - Mother of All Nations. You may say The Lady of All Nations or Mother of All Nations, who once was Mary. I have come precisely today in order to tell you that I wish to be known as this. Let all the children of men, of all the countries in the world - be one."...Now I suddenly see myself standing above Italy. I see the Vatican and right in the middle of it I see the Pope. He has the tiara on his head, a scepter in one hand, and holds the other in the well-known attitude, with the two fingers raised. All around him I see cardinals and bishops. Then I hear the Lady say to me, " Look carefully, these are the bishops of all countries." ( This is the second prophecy of the Second Vatican Council. ) "The doctrine is correct, the laws can and must be changed...Let all men return to the Cross! Only this can bring peace and tranquility...Repeat this after me. Do say this prayer in front of the Cross:
Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the Father,
send now Your Spirit over the earth.
Let the Holy Spirit live in the hearts of all nations,
that they may be preserved
from degeneration, disaster and war.
May the Lady of All Nations, who once was Mary,
be our Advocate. Amen."
The Lady continues, " My child, this prayer is so short and simple that each one can say it in his own tongue, before his own crucifix; and those who have no crucifix, repeat it to themselves. This is the message that I have come to give you today, for I have now come to tell you that I want to save the souls. Let all men co-operate in this great work for the world! If only everybody tried to follow this for himself!...Especially as regard the first and great commandment - Love...Go to the crucifix and say the prayer that I have taught you and the Son will grant your request...Remember the false prophets. Seek and ask only for the true Holy Spirit. There is, at the moment, a war of ideas. It is no longer races and nations that are at issue; the fight is for the spirit. Have no doubt about this....You can save this world. I have said it more than once. Rome has its opportunity. Seize the present moment. No Church in the world is constituted like yours.
" But do move with the times and urge your up-to-date changes on religious, priests, seminarians, and all others. Keep an eye on that and carry it out to the smallest detail. The doctrine must remain intact, but the laws may be change. Let the children of this world benefit more by ' The Remembrance of my Son ' ...I have shown you in a dream how the practice of frequent Communion can be achieved...For Germany, I have this message: ' Let them work assiduously in that country to bring the people, who have strayed very far, back to the center of man's life - THE CROSS - There is a shortage of priests, but of lay people there is no shortage. Let a great movement among the laity be organized to gain them for the campaign. Carry out this work, above all, with great love and charity."
The Lady points to the globe and says, " THIS TIME IS OUR TIME...There is plenty of evidence even in what I have told you this very day. Tell them that I wish to be 'THE LADY OF ALL NATIONS. ' "
Twenty-Eight Appariton, March 4, 1951
( The Blessed Mother shows to Ida and describes the picture of The Lady of All Nations.)
..." Then," says the Lady, " you have seen everything well, haven't you? I have shown you my head, my hands, and my feet like those of a human being - mark well: like those of the Son of Man! All the rest is Spirit. Have this picture of me painted and together with it, spread the prayer I have taught you. This is my wish for today. And I want this to be done in many languages...Child," says the Lady again, " once more I insist that this must be done. It is of great importance, that you, human being that you are, do not allow yourself to be deterred from it by others. You must be brave and see it through...In these days, I want to be ' the Lady of All Nations ' and therefore I require of you to get the prayer translated into all the prinicipal languages and said every day. Fear nothing.
" Now I will explain to you why I have come in this way: I am the Lady standing in front of the Cross. My head, hands and feet are like those of a human being. The trunk, however, belongs to the Spirit because the Son came through the Will of theFather. Now, however, the Spirit is to descend upon the world and this is why I want people to pray for His coming." The Lady pauses before She adds, "I am standing upon the globe because this message concerns the whole world."
Twenty-Ninth Apparition, March 28, 1951
Now the Lady comes closer and again She shows me everything clearly. Then She says, " This is how it will have to be made known. In the text of the prayer I taught you:
' Lord Jesus Christ,' etc. Nothing is to be altered."
And again the Lady says the prayer for me and lets me read it in printed letters.
I notice that the litte word " now "in the phrase, " Send now your Spirit," as well as the word " All " in " The Lady of All Nations " - is underlined. Then She says, "The words ' Who once was Mary, ' must remain as they are...Tell your director; in these modern times, in this modern world, which knows how to act promptly and swiftly in material affairs, it is equally necessary, in spiritual matters, to act swiflty and without delay...I have told you earlier on, that the Cross must be brought back into the world...
" I desire that it (the prayer) should be spread in many languages. In this work I will help them. Do not be so frightened. Why be afraid of things which are comeing from the Son? Make this devotion known. Otherwise there will be war upon war and no end to destruction.
" Rome must be conscious of its role in these days. Does Rome know who the enemy is that is lying in wait for her, like a serpent stealthily making its way in the world? I am not referring to Communism alone; there are yet other ' prophets ' to come false prophets!"
Thirtieth Apparition, April 1, 1951
"...Look closely and listen carefully to what I have to tell you. I stand here and I wish to be ' the Lady of All Nations ' - not of one special nation, but of all. Listen carefully to the explanation I am about to give, and try to grasp the contents of this message. I stand before the Cross with my head, hands and feet as those of a human being. The rest is of the Spirit. Why do I stand like this? My body has been taken up like the Son was. Now I stand an oblation before the Cross. For I have suffered with my Son, spiritually and above all - bodily. This will become a much contested dogma...My child pass it on and say, ' This brings the Marian dogmas to a conclusion...I have said that theology must yield to the interests of my Son. By this I mean: theologians, the Son always uses what is little and simple for the carrying out of His designs. Do you have the same simple faith that you are trying to inculcate in others? Childlike faith. We cannot afford to let time slip by idly. This time is Our time.
" My child, just as He suffered, so did I suffer as the Mother of the Son of Man. Repeat this correctly. Then the Lady draws my attention to the globe on which she is standing. Snow is falling all around her. She smiles and says, " Don't you understand? Look closely at the globe...Just as the snowflakes whirl over the earth and fall upon the ground in a thick layer, so the prayer and the picture will spread all over the world and penetrate into the hearts of all nations...
" As the carpet of snow melts into the ground, so will the fruit, which is the Spirit come into the hearts of all those who say this prayer every day. For they are praying for the Holy Spirit to come down upon the earth. And now I speak to those who wish to see a miracle: ' Well now,' I tell them, ' Go and with great ardour and zeal set about this work of redemption and peace and you will see the miracle.' This is my message for today and indeed time presses. A great movement has to be set on foot for the Son, for the Cross, and for the Advocate, the bearer of peace and tranquility - 'The Lady of All Nations.' "
Thirty-First Appariton, April 15, 1951
" ...For I stand as the Lady in front of the Cross of the Son. This picture [of the Lady of All Nations ] will precede" - and the Lady repeats ' will precede ' - a dogma, a new dogma. Now I will explain it to you so listen carefully.
" The Son came into the world as the Redeemer of men and the work of redemption was the Cross, with all its sufferings both of body and spirit...The Lady moves away from the Cross...I see the Lady as it were, writhing and then She begins to weep. Once again the Lady shows Herself clearly in front of the Cross and says, " Listen well and be sure to grasp what I am going to explain to you. But first I repeat: the Son came into the world as the Redeemer of mankind. The work of Redemption was the Cross. He was sent by the Father. Now, however, the Father and the Son want to send ' the Lady ' throughout the whole world. In the past too, She went before the Son and followed Him. For this reason I am now standing on the world, on the globe. The Cross stands firmly fixed, implanted in it.
" Now the Lady comes to stand in front of it, as the Son's Mother, who with Him has accomplished this work of redemption.
" This picture speaks clearly and now is the time to bring it into the world, for the world is once more in need of the Cross.
" The Lady, however, really stands here as the ' Co-Redemptrix ' and ' Advocate.' About this much controversy will arise. The Church, Rome, however, should not be afraid to take up the struggle. It can only make the Church stronger and more powerful. This is what I say to the theologians. Furthermore, I say to them: give this matter your serious attention. Once again the Son always chooses the humble and lowly for His work. Child I hope that you have understood this properly and can silence all objections. Now I speak to you in particular: make sure my message is spread promptly.
I say to the Lady, " How can I do this! I am so much afraid."
Then the Lady says, " You are afraid? But I am helping you! You will find that it will spread as if of its own accord. You are on the right road. It shall and must happen that the people who accept this prayer will promise to say it every day. You cannot estimate the great value this will have. You do not know what the future has in store." And now the Lady lets me see what looks like snakes, crawling about the world, all over the globe..." Child things at present are just like they were before the Son came. Therefore, I cannot insist enough that mankind, that Rome, that all join in the fight for the Son's cause. I know well enough that efforts are being made in some places, but that is a far cry from what is required for saving the world. And the world has to be saved from degeneration, disaster, and war. Send this prayer and picture to those countries where the faith has been destroyed...Nobody knows which way to turn? Now then, get back to your simple faith and the world will regain peace...This time is Our time!"
Thirty-Second Apparition, April 29, 1951
" I stand here as the Co-redemptrix and Advocate. Everything should be concentrated on that. Repeat this after me: The new dogma will be [referred to as] the ' dogma of the Co-Redemptrix.' Notice I lay the special emphasis on ' Co '. I have said that this will arouse much controversy. Once again I tell you that the Church, ' Rome,' will carry it through and silence all objections. The Church ' Rome,' will incur opposition and overcome it. The Church, ' Rome, ' will become stronger and mightier in proportion to the resistance she puts up in the struggle.
" My purpose and my commission to you is none other than to urge the Church, the theologians, to wage this battle. For the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit wills to send the Lady, chosen to bear the Redeemer into this world, as Co-Redemptrix and Advocate. I have said, ' This time is Our time,' By this I mean the following: The world is caught up in degeneration and superficiality. It is at a loss. Therefore, the Father sends me to be the Advocate to implore the Holy Spirit to come. For the world is not saved by force, the world will be saved by the Spirit. It is only ideas that rule the world. Know your responsibility then, Church of Rome. Get your ideas across; bring Christ back into the world once more.
"...Child pass on that those who fight and labor for the cause, which the Son desires should succeed, should do so with great ardour and zeal." The Lady smiles and says, " I will help them. I have taught you that simple prayer to the Father and the Son. See that it is made known throughout the world, among all Nations. They all have a right to it. I assure you the world will change...This picture has only a preparatory function. Again I say: preparatory. It will be used as a preparatory work for peace and redemption. Later on they will use the picture for the Co-Redemptrix.
" In the sufferings both spiritual and bodily, the Lady, the Mother has shared. She has always gone on before. As soon as the Father had elected Her, She was the Co-Redemptrix with the Redeemer, who came into the world as the Man-God. Tell that to your theologians.
" I know well the struggle will be hard and bitter ( and then the Lady smiles to Herself and seems to gaze into the far distance ) but the outcome is already assured.
" Now you see me standing here clearly, very clearly. This is the way the picture should be made known throughout the world. My child, insist upon it, that these things are carried out. They should not hesitate. They should act. The situation is far too serious. Nobody realizes just how serious.
"...The world is degenerating, so much so, that it was necessary for the Father and the Son to send me into the world among all the peoples, in order to be their Advocate and save them. Tell your theologians this. " And then I see the Lady leave and again I hear Her say, " This time is Our time."
Thirty-Third Apparition, May 31, 1951
"...Look closely. I am standing before the Cross of the Redeemer. My head, my hands and my feet are those of a human being, as those of the Son of Man. The rest belongs to the Spirit. My feet are firmly planted on the globe, for it is the wish of the Father and the Son to send me into the world in these times as ' Co-Redemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate.' This will constitute a new and last Marian dogma. This picture will go before it. This dogma will be much disputed; and yet it will prevail!
...This is the last direction I am giving you with regard to the picture: you thought, my child, that you were seeing clouds around the globe, but now look closely at what I am going to show you."
And now I see the clouds changing into sheep. From left to right, all around the globe, from out of the depths and from all sides I can see flocks of sheep emerging. Here and there I see a black one. Lambs are reposing at the foot of the globe. The sheep keep coming, some grazing, but most of them with heads upturned, as if looking straight at the Lady with the Cross. Others look up at Her while quietly lying on the ground.
Then the Lady speaks to me again, " My child, imprint this image deeply on your mind and transmit it correctly: The flocks of sheep represent the peoples of the world who will not find rest until they achieve content and fix their eyes on the Cross, the center of this world.
" Now look at my hands and relate what you see." Now I see in the palms of her hands what appear to be wounds already healed and from these, rays of light stream out, three from each hand, and diffuse themselves among the sheep.
Smiling, the Lady adds, " These three rays are Grace, Redemption, and Peace. Through the Grace of my Lord and Master, and for the love of mankind, the Father sent His only-begotten Son as Redeemer for the world. Now They both wish to send the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Truth, Who alone can bring Peace. Hence, ' Grace, Redemption, and Peace.' The Father and the Son wish, as at this very time, to send Mary, ' The Lady of All Nations ' as Co-Redemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate. Now I have given you a clear and lucid explanation of the picture. There is nothing more to be said.
"...Make sure that the prayer, which briefly and yet so urgently asks for the sending of the True Holy Spirit, is spread as quickly as possible. Tell your director and all who co-operate in this that I promise that all who pray before the picture and ask the help of Mary, ' the Lady of All Nations,' will be given the grace for soul and body, in the measure that the Son wishes. You should not regard this as a matter for a limited circle only, for I am ' the Lady of All Nations.' This picture must go from country to country, from town to town. That is what is meant by redemption...Again I say: I promise to help all who are in spiritual and bodily distress, if they carry out my will, the will of the Father...Theologians, you should have no difficulty if you consider that the Lord and Master had predestined the Lady for sacrifice. For the sword had already been directed at the heart of the Mother.
" My meaning is that I have always gone before the Son in spiritual and physical sufferings...This time is Our time."
Thirty-Fourth Apparition, July 2, 1951
"...Now watch well and listen. The following is the explanation of the new dogma: As Co-Redemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate I am standing on the globe in front of the Cross of the Redeemer. By the will of the Father the Redeemer came on earth.
" To accomplish this, the Father used the Lady. Thus, from the Lady the Redeemer received only - I am stressing the word 'only' - flesh and blood, that is to say, the body. From my Lord and Master the Redeemer received His Divinity.
" In this way the Lady became the Co-Redemptrix, I have told you: This time is Our time. This means that the Father and the Son wants in these times to send the Co-Redemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate throughout the whole world...Now look hand at my hands. From them eminate Grace, Redemption and Peace. The rays shine upon all peoples. Among these peoples are many of good will. To be of good will means to keep the first and great commandment. The first and great commandment is LOVE. He who loves, will honor his Lord and Creator in His Creation. He who loves, will do nothing that would dishonor his neighbor. That is what the world is lacking Love of God - Love of Neighbor.
" ' This time is Our time.' All peoples must honor the Lord and Master in His Creation. All peoples should pray for the True and Holy Spirit. Therefore I have given you this short and powerful prayer.
" Thus I repeat once again: The prayer must speedily be spread abroad. The whole world is degenerating. Let men of good will pray every day that the True Spirit may come! I am ' the Lady of All Nation.' This time is Our time. Mary just as Mary. Now, however, in this new era, which is beginning now, I wish to be ' the Lady of All Nations.' Everybody should understand this."
Thirty-Fifth Apparition, August 15, 1951
"...I have crushed the snake with my foot. I have become united with my Son as I had always been united with Him. This is ' the dogma ' that has gone before in the history of the Church. As Co-Redemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate I stand here, now in this time, in Our time. The dogma of the Assumption had to precede it. The last and greatest dogma will follow. The Sacrifice stands and will stand at the center of the world, in this era.
" Mankind has been entrusted to the Mother.
" For the Son said, ' Woman behold thy son; son behold thy Mother,' the Co-Redemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate. Inform your theologians. Tell them that I wish to be and shall be, the Co-Redemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate.
" This picture will go before; this picture shall be spread...The last Marian dogma - the Lady standing in front of the Cross as the Co-Redemptrix in this present time - will be the principal one...This picture shall go before. This picture shall be spread throughout the world.
" Rome, do you know, how completely everything is being undermined? The years will speed by unheeded, but the longer you wait the more the Faith will decline; the greater the number of years, the greater the apostasy.
" The Lady of All Nations stands here and says, ' I wish to help them and I am permitted to help them.' The first and great commandment is Love. He who possesses love, will honor his Lord and Master in His Creation, that is to say, recognize the sublime in His Creation, inclusive of the Sacrifice...The Church will be attacked greatly over the new dogma. It will arouse astonishment in others. The Church, however, will thereby gain in power and strength...I will and can obtain grace, redemption, and peace for all who ask. I promise that today."
Thirty-Sixth Apparition, September 20, 1951
Now all at once I see snowflakes whirling around the Lady and these fall upon the globe. The Lady then says, " Child, why is this prayer not being spread abroad? What are they waiting for? I have taught it to you, so that it might be circulated among the people. Let everyone say this short and simple prayer every day! This prayer is purposely kept short and simple, so that every person may manage to say it, even in this modern speed-mad world. It has been given, so that the coming of the Spirit of Truth may be implored for the world."
Thirty-Seventh Apparition, November 15, 1951
" Tell the world that I wish to be the ' Lady of All Nation .' Let the world pray to the Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the Father, that He send the Holy Spirit, so that the Spirit of Truth may dwell in the hearts of all nations. Ask the the Lady of All Nations, who once was Mary, may be the Advocate. ' The Lady of All Nations ' is standing here before the Cross of her Son. Her feet are placed on the center of the earth; around her is the flock of Jesus Christ. I come as the Co-Redemptrix-Mediatrix at this time. Co-Redemptrix I already was at the Annuciation.
" This means that the Mother became Co-Redemptrix by the Will of the Father. Tell your theologians this. Tell them, moreover, that this will be the last dogma in Marian history.
" This picture shall prepare the way. Have this picture brought to the world; and thereby I mean the whole world, not only your country. The world is degenerating. The world is being afflicted with disaster upon disaster. The world will be and is - economically and materially at a dead end. Wars will continue until the Spirit of Truth comes with His help. Get the people back to the Cross.
"...This world can be saved only through the Church that holds this doctrine.
" Tell all those you co-operate with, to spread the prayer-picture in even greater numbers farther afield. I shall assist them."
Thirty-Eighth Apparition, December 31, 1951
"...I am not bringing a new doctrine. The teaching is correct but the laws can be changed...I do not come with a new doctrine. The doctrine is already there.
"...The Father, the Lord and Master, has willed the Handmaid of the Lord to come into this world as ' Miriam, ' or ' Mary. ' She was chosen from among all women as the Co-Redemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate. Say to your theologians: She was made Co-Redemptrix already at the beginning.
" ' The Lady of All Nations ' stands in the middle of the world in front of the Cross. She enters times as ' Co-Redemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate. ' She will pass into Marian history under this title... ' Now I stand as Advocate in these anxious times. All of you, whoever and whatever you may be, ask that the Holy Spirit of Truth may descend. You shall beg this of the Father and the Son. The Blessed Trinity will reign over the world again. The Lady stands here as the Advocate. It is the Creator we are concerned with and not the Lady. Tell your theologians. Ask them to send this prayer over the world and the Lady will give them the ability and strength to carry it through.
" ' The Lady of All nations ' promises here and now that those who ask will be heard, if it is the Will of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. The prayer has been given for the salvation of the world. This prayer has been given for the conversion of the world. Let this prayer accompany whatever you do in your daily life. This prayer should be spread in the churches and through modern means of communication.
" The people of the present world should lean to invoke ' the Lady of All Nations ' - who once was ' Mary ' - as their advocate, so that the world may be delivered from degeneration, disaster and war. Tell your theologians this! This time is Our time, come and pray before this picture.' "
Fortieth Apparition, March 19, 1952
" Before the year 2000 much will have changed in the Church, the Community. Nevertheless, the substance will remain."
Forty - First Apparition, April 6, 1952
The Lady is here again! She says, " Now you must listen and transmit carefully what I have come to say today. Tell the theologians that I am not pleased about their alteration of the prayer, ' May the Lady of All Nations, who once was Mary, be our Advocate ' - that must remain as it is. ' This time is Our time. ' Pass on the following to the theologians: ' The Lady ' came with the Sacrifice of the Cross. The Son said to His Mother, ' Woman behold thy son. ' So you see, it was at the Sacrifice of the Cross that the change came about.
" The Lord and Master chose ' Miriam ' or ' Mary ' from among all the women, to become the ' Mother ' of His Divine Son. At the Sacrifice of the Cross, however, She became the ' Lady ' ( ' Woman ' ) - the Co-Redemptrix and Mediatrix. - This was announced by the Son at the time that He returned to the Father.
" Therefore I bring you this new wording into these times, and say, ' I am the Lady of All Nations, who once was Mary.' Let the theologians know this. These words have that significance for the theologians.
" ' This time is Our time.' The forthcoming dogma is the last Marian dogma, namely, ' the Lady of All Nations , as the ' Co-Redemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate. '
At the Sacrifice of the Cross the Son announced this title to the whole world. Whoever or whatever you are, I am for you ' The Lady.'
" ...Your task is great," says the Lady to me. " Let all those who co-operate in this great work, do so in all earnestness and with great zeal...You are all responsible for the task that falls to you in this present time. Resist the influence of the wrong spirit. Pray every day that the Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the Father, may send the Holy Spirit over the earth, and ' the Lady of All Nations,' who once was ' Mary ', will be your Advocate. So be it!"
Forty - Second Apparition, June 15, 1952
" ' The Lady of All Nations ' will help you and all those who will fight for this. The great movement must begin! This picture has to prepare the way. later on there will be no nation without " the Lady of All Nations.' This title begins to operate now. ' This time is Our time.'
"...' The Lady, who once was Mary.' Only at the departure of the Lord Jesus Christ did co-redemption have its beginning. Only when the Lord Jesus Christ went away, did she become the Mediatrix and Advocate.(This refers to the fact that there could be no redemptive graces through Mary's cooperation until Her Lord and Son Jesus Christ redeemed the world first!) When departing, the Lord Jesus Christ gave to the nations ' The Lady of All Nations.' ...Tell all those who participate that they must say this prayer."
Then the Lady points at the globe and says, " Just look at all those countries! Nowhere is unity to be found, nowhere peace, nowhere repose for the nations. Everywhere there is tension, everywhere anxiety. The Lord Jesus Christ lets this be. His time will come. There will be an intervening period of unrest - caused by humanisn, paganism, godlessness, snakes. These will attempt to control the world."
Forty - Third Apparition, October 5, 1952
" Never has ' Miriam or Mary ' in the Community, the Church been officially called ' Co-Redemptrix.' Never has she officially been called ' Mediatrix.' Never has she officially been called ' Advocate.' These three thoughts are not only closely connected, they form one whole. Therefore this will be the keystone of Marian history; it will become the dogma of the Co-Redemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate.
" I do not reproach the theologians if I say: why can you not come to an agreement about this dogma? Once more I shall explain it and make it clearer still: The Father sent the Lord Jesus Christ as the ' Redeemer of All Nations.' The Lord Jesus Christ was this from the beginning. He became this in the Sacrifice and in His going to the Father.
" ' Miriam or Mary ' became the Handmaid of the Lord, chosen by the Father and the Holy Spirit. From the beginning She was, in virtue of this choice, the Co-Redemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate. ONLY at the departure of the God-Man, the Lord Jesus Christ, She became the Co-Redemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate. When leaving, in one final act, the Lord Jesus Christ gave Miriam or Mary to the nations, gave Her as ' the Lady of All Nations.'
" He spoke the words, ' Woman, behold thy son; son behold they Mother,' - ONE act! - and by this Miriam or Mary received this new title.
" How is it that this new title - ' the Lady of All Nations ' - only now enters the world? It is because the Lord reserved it for this time. The other dogmas had to come first; just as Her life on earth had to precede ' the Lady of All Nations.' All previous dogmas comprised the mortal life and the leaving of this life by the Lady. For the theologians this simple explanation should suffice. It was necessary to give this explanation once more.
"...This picture is, however, destined for all peoples: for everyone who wishes to come to ' the Lady of All Nations.' Go and present your picture to them. It is the wish of the Lady that it should go to the Netherlands and in particular Amsterdam. The Lady has Her special reason for this. Amsterdam is the city of the miraculous Host. There ' the Lady of All Nations ' will go."
Forty - Fourth Apparition, December 8, 1952
"...I am entering these times as the ' Co-Redemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate.' In one act the Lord gave Mary these three titles - gave these three concepts in one significant act. The new dogma will be much disputed; therefore, I have given you that detailed explanation...I have said that this picture is to prepare the way. This picture must be spread all over the world. It is the illustration of the new dogma. This is why I have personally given this picture to the nations. The prayer will remain to the end. The prayer that Mary as ' the Lady of All Nations ' has presented to the world, will have to be said in all the churches. You should employ your modern means to achieve this. Ask permission and it will be granted to you. Know well: the time is drawing near.
"...Great threatening dangers hang over the world. The Church will be undermined still more.
" You must realize why I come as ' the Lady of All Nations.' I come in order to rally all nations in the Spirit, in the Spirit of Truth. All men must learn to find the Holy Spirit. Strive after justice, truth and love. Do not reject your brothers. Lead them on to the knowledge of the True Spirit. A heavy responsibility rests upon the people of these times.
"...You have no idea how serious and how difficult these times are.
"...Follow the precepts of the Encyclicals. Let the world be filled with their teaching! For the spirit of untruth, lies and deception will be frustrated...White people, respect the rights of black people. You should support and help one another and ' the Lady of All Nations ' will be there and help you wherever you are.
"...' The Lady of All Nations ' promises to aid mankind if they acknowledge this title and invole her under this title. Make this message know. It is high time! Fear not, I will help."
Forty - Fifth Apparition, March 20, 1953
Now the Lady looks in front of Her for a long time and finally says, " Before the Lord Jesus Christ returned to the Father - before the Sacrifice of the Cross began - the Lord Jesus Christ gave to the nations of the whole world the Daily Miracle."
Now the Lady casts a searching glance over the globe and very slowly and questioningly says, " How many are there... (pause ) who experience this Great Wonder? They pass this Great Miracle by. The daily Sacrifice has to have its place again at the center of this degenerate world."
" ... I said: great powers will be overthrown; a politico-economic struggle will arise; be on your guard against false prophets; be on the lookout for meteors; there will be disasters; there will be catastrophies of nature. We are faced with weighty decisions. We shall be under heavy pressure...It is modern humanism, realism, socialism and communism that have the world in their clutches.
"...It is Amsterdam I have selected as the seat of ' the Lady of All Nations.' This is also the City of the Blessed Sacrament. Make sure you grasp all this."
Forty-Sixth Apparition, May 10, 1953
" I have come today to give you a special message: ask (petition) the Holy Father if he would kindly say, and lead all nations is saying, the prayer with Mary, the Co-Redemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate, under the title of ' the Lady of All Nations, ' which She has given to the world. Say to him:
Apostle of the Lord Jesus Christ, teach your people this simple but profound prayer. It is Mary, ' the Lady of All Nations,' who is asking this of you. You are the Shepherd of the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ. Tend your sheep. Know well that great and threatening dangers are hanging over the Church, over the world. Now the moment has arrived when you should speak of the Co-Redemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate, under the title of ' the Lady of All Nations. Why is Mary asking you to do this? It is because she is sent by her Lord and Creator, so that, by means of this prayer and this title, she may save the world from a universal calamity. You know that Mary wishes to come as ' the Lady of All Nations.' Now She is asking that the nations might hear this title from you, the Holy Father."
Forty - Seventh Apparition, October 11, 1953
" 'The Lady of All Nations' has the power to bring the world peace. Yet She has to be asked for it under this title. ' The Lady of All Nations will assist the Church of Rome...
They should say my prayer against degeneration disaster and war, and spread it among all peoples. I shall help the Church of Rome - the Community. The nations should call me under this title.
" The Lord is the Redeemer of all nations. Mary, the Mother, was from the beginning chosen as Co-Redemptrix. She became Co-Redemptrix at the departure of the Lord Jesus Christ to the Father. She became the Mediatrix and Advocate of all people."
Forty - Ninth Apparition, April 4, 1954
" Listen well: from the outset the Handmaid of the Lord was chosen to be Co-Redemptrix. Tell your theologians they can find it all in their books!...I am not bringing a new doctrine. I am now bringing old ideas...
" Because the Lady is Co-Redemptrix, She is also Mediatrix and Advocate not only because She is the Mother of the Lord Jesus Christ, but - and mark this well - because She is the Immaculate Conception...Do fight and ask for this dogma: it is the crowning of Your Lady...
" The Lady was chosen. She was also to be present at the Descent of the Holy spirit. The Holy Spirit had to come down upon the Apostles, - ( and raising Her finger, She adds with emphasis ) - the first theologians! For this reason the Lord willed that His Mother should be present there. His Mother, ' the Lady of All Nations ' became at the departure of her Son, ' the Lady of All Nations,' Co-Redemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate, in the presence of one Apostle, one theologian, to be witness to it. For he had to take care of ' Thy Mother.' She had to take care of ' Her Apostles.'
" Tell your theologians, however, that now they have everything in their hands. Now they have to accomplish the Will of the Lord Jesus Christ. Tell the theologians that ' the Lady of All Nations ' will see to its fulfillment!!!"
Fiftieth Apparition, May 31, 1954
" Once more I am here, - The Co-Redemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate is now standing before you. I have chosen this day: on this day the Lady will be crowned. Theologians and apostles of the Lord Jesus Christ listen carefully: I have given you the explanation of the dogma. Work and ask for this dogma. You should petition the Holy Father for this dogma. The Lord Jesus Christ has wrought great things and will give even more to you all in these times, in this twentieth century. On this date ' the Lady of All Nations ' will receive her official title of ' Lady of All Nations '* Note well: these three concepts in one. These three. ( The Lady puts up three fingers and moves the other hand round about Her until She becomes, as it were, enveloped in a delicate mist ). Now I have demonstrated these three concepts to your theologians. THESE THREE CONCEPTS AS ONE WHOLE. I AM SAYING THIS TWICE BECAUSE THERE ARE SOME WHO WILL ACCEPT ONLY ONE CONCEPT. THE HOLY FATHER WILL AGREE TO THE FORMER. BUT YOU WILL HAVE TO HELP HIM ACHIEVE THIS. MAKE NO MISTAKE ABOUT IT.
" In this way, my child, I have let you see what is the Will of the Lord Jesus Christ. This day will in due time, be the ' Coronation Day ' of His Mother, ' the Lady of All Nations,' who once was Mary.
" And here is my sign: ' the Lady of All Nations' is allowed to come under this title every year to Her children, to Her apostles, to all nations.
"...When the dogma, the last dogma in Marian history, has been proclaimed, ' the Lady of All Nations ' will give peace, true peace to the world. The nations, however, must say my prayer in union with the Church. They must know that ' the Lady of All Nations ' has come as Co-Redemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate.
So be it!"
* On May 31, 1996 official veneration of the Lady of All Nations and Her picture and Her prayer were all approved by the late Bishop Hendrik Bomers, bishop of the Haarlem - Amsterdam diocese in the Netherlands (Holland).
Fifty-First Apparition, May 31, 1955
" ...Satan is not banished yet. ' The Lady of All Nations ' is now permitted to come in order to banish Satan. She comes to announce the Holy Spirit. The Holy spirit will only now descend over this earth. But you should say my prayer, the one I gave to the world. Every day and every moment you should think of the prayer ' the Lady of All Nations ' gave to this world at this time.
"You do not know what great value and power this prayer boasts before God!
He will grant the requests of His Mother, when She comes to plead for you as Advocate.
" Great events are impending...This will be a time of stupendous and awesome inventions; so that even your pastors will stand amazed and will tell you: we too are at our wits' end. Then take to heart the words the Lady spoke to you on May 31st. The Father knows, and permits, all that will come and pass in the world.
" Know well that the Holy Spirit is nearer than ever. The Holy Spirit will come now only, if you pray for His coming. He has always been ready; now, however, the time has come.
" Why do you not ask the Holy Father to pronounce the dogma the Lady demands?...Once the dogma has been pronounced, ' the Lady of All Nations ' will give Her blessing... Then ' the Lady of All Nations ' will bestow peace. She will help you when this dogma is proclaimed.
" Nations be mindful of the Daily Miracle given to you by the Lord Jesus Christ. He gave it (the Sacrifice of the Mass) to you, so that you might expierence it every day. Do you realize what it is you are going without?...Bring your children back to the Sacrifice. Let all nations come back to the Sacrifice!
" When you begin to ask the Holy Father for the dogma, the Lady will fulfill Her promise and true peace will come. True Peace, nations, that is the kingdom of God. God's kindom now is nearer than ever. Understand these words well.
"...You members of the Church of Rome, appreciate your great, your own great happiness. Realize what it means to belong to the Church of Rome! Do your actions bear this out? Your Mother, ' the Lady of All Nations,' may come to you once a year under this new title; later this will change. Understand my words well when I say: make sure that every year the nations will be assembled around this throne, before this picture. This is the great favor that Mary, ' Miriam ' or ' the Lady of All Nations ' is allowed to bestow on the world.
" Satan is not banished yet - it is for you to see to that, you people of the Church of Rome. Remember your Sacraments; they still exist! You Christian people, by your example bring others to Him, to the daily Miracle, to the daily Sacrifice...the Holy Spirit will help you. Implore Him now. I cannot repeat this often enough to the world: HAVE RECOURSE TO THE HOLY SPIRIT NOW. ( The Lady said this very slowly, stressing every word )..." ' My signs,' - I said ' are inherent in my words.' "
Fifty-Second Apparition, May 31, 1956
" Did not the Lord Jesus Christ delay His great miracle (and now the Lady speaks in a soft voice with emphasis ) - that of changing water into wine - until His Mother had spoken? He intended to perform His miracle, but waited until His Mother had spoken. Do you see what I mean? This is my reply to those who could not understand that the Lady should have appeared on May 31st, 1955, in the church of St. Thomas ( during the exposition of the Blessed Sacrament!)...Also for those who are in error, the Lady says so. This thought should help them to form a correct idea of the relationship of the Lady with Her Lord." (This statement by the Lady of All Nations succintly defines the integral relationship of Our Lady to the Church and Her continual and necessary cooperation with Her Lord as the Coredemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate in bringing forth not only His graces but also His True Presence. For She is the Woman through whom He has always come. This is the will of God just as it was depicted at the wedding of Cana!)
Fifty-Third Apparition, May 31, 1957
" Now I will give a reply to all those who have asked for a sign." ( Here the Lady compassionately shook her head.) " To all them I say: My signs are contained in my words. Oh, you of little faith! You are like children who insist upon fireworks, whereas they have no eyes for the true light and for the true fire. ( Here the Lady smiled, full of compassion.)
" You seek and seek in para-this and para-that. But to this ' the Lady of All Nations ' has a reply as well: it is the PARACLETE who effects all this.
" Before the Lord Jesus Christ died His bodily death; before the Lord Jesus Christ ascended to the Father; before the Lord Jesus Christ appeared in the world - moved anew among men..He gave you the great Mystery, the great Miracle of everyday, every hour, every minute. He gave you HIMSELF. No nations, ( She shook her head vehemently as she said this) NOT MERELY A REMEMBRANCE; no, nations, listen to what He said: NOT JUST AN IDEA, but HIMSELF, UNDER THE APPEARANCE OF A LITTLE PIECE OF BREAD, UNDER THE APPEARANCE OF WINE. THIS IS HOW THE LORD WANTS TO COME AMONG YOU, DAY AFTER DAY. DO ACCEPT IT. DO ACT ON IT. HE GIVES YOU THE FORETASTE - THE FORETASTES OF ETERNAL LIFE."
" Go to the Holy Father and tell him that I have said: the time has now arrived for the Dogma to be proclaimed. I shall come back privately at the time chosen by the Lord to assist the Church and the priests. Say that celibacy is endangered from within, but the Holy Father must always uphold it, notwithstanding all opposition."*
*(Of course in the year 1957 there did not appear to be any open threat or question on the matter of celibacy in the Church, however, ten years later this would be quite a matter and the Lady's prophecy would come true.)
Fifty-Fourth Apparition, February 18 - 19, 1958
" I shall make a communication to you, which you must keep secret from everybody, ( including the Sacristan and your director). When it has happened you may inform them that the Lady now told you this.
"...This Holy Father, Pope Pius XII, will at the beginning of October of this year be taken up to dwell with Us. The Lady of All Nations, Co-Redemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate will lead him to everlasting bliss." ( I was very frightened at this communication and dared hardly believe it).
The Lady said, " Do not be frightened, child. His successor (not referring to his immediate successor) will pronounce the dogma." *
* In fact Pope Pius XII died October 9, 1958. Ida wrote this message on a piece of note paper and placed it in an envelope which she gave to her spiritual director Fr. Frehe. Fr. Frehe kept the envelope and it was only opened after the death of His Holiness Pope Pius XII thus attesting to the authenticity of the prophecy. Fr. Frehe nor anyone else did not know the contents of the envelope.
Fifty-Fifth Apparition, May 31, 1958
"...Warn the clergy against heretical doctrines, particularly in the domain of the Eucharist."
Fifty-Sixth Apparition, May 31, 1959
"Do penance...Make reparation to Him!"
