Introduction to the Messages

The first apparition of Mary as the Lady of All Nations took place in Amsterdam on March 25, 1945, the Feast of the Annunciation. Her coming was an event that occurred in all silence and simplicity, hidden from the eyes of the world. In that year the Annunciation coincided with Palm Sunday. World War II was still going on in the Netherlands, and Amsterdam was living through a horrible period in its history. A woman, Ida Peerdeman, and her three sisters were at home, seated around a pot-bellied stove. A priest, a friend of the family, stopped by for a visit. While they were engaged in lively conversation, something extraordinary happened. Ida, the youngest of the four sisters, noticed something in the adjoining room. She got up and saw an immense light appearing, and her surroundings seemed to fade away. From the light she saw a female figure come forth, dressed in white, who began to speak to her. This was the first of a series of fifty-six apparitions which have become known as ‘The Messages of the Lady of All Nations’. The last message, a majestic farewell-vision, would be received fourteen years later, on May 31, 1959. 1

 

The messages may be viewed as three groups:

1)The first twenty-five messages, 1945-1950: These messages are more general in topic. Mary, the Lady, presents images, warnings and prophecies which clearly predict the political and spiritual turbulence to come in the second half of the twentieth century. 2)The next twenty-four messages, 1951-1954: Following the proclamation of the dogma of the Assumption of Mary into Heaven on November 1, 1950, the messages take on a new direction. The great plan by which the Lady wishes to save the world gradually unfolds. She dictates a prayer which, together with her image, is to be spread throughout the whole world, and she states that this-her ‘worldwide action’-is the direct preparation for the final Marian dogma: Mary Coredemptrix, Mediatrix, and Advocate. In numerous messages she explicates the meaning and importance of this prayer, image, and dogma, and she promises that the dogma will bring about a completely new outpouring of the Holy Spirit. 3) The last seven messages, 1954-1959: From May 31, 1954, onward, the Lady appears on May 31st every year. In grand visions she addresses the nations of the world, showing them the way to go, the way leading to the daily Miracle , the Eucharist. 2

 

The first twenty-five messages, 1945-1950

The first twenty-five messages, given between 1945 and 1950, are not always easy to understand. Initially the meaning of many images and words remained obscure. In a time in which no one could foresee the heavy storms to break out over the Church and the world, the Lady warned of forthcoming degeneration, disaster, and war. Now, more than fifty years later, this all the more remarkable, for many of the images have become familiar to us, and many of the prophesies have been fulfilled: the founding of the Jewish state of Israel (message 2), the Cold War (message 23), economic warfare, boycotting, currency crises (message 14), the first landing on the moon (message 7), the Balkan war (message 17), the downfall of communism (message 5), chemical warfare (message 17), and many more. It is with good reason that the Lady says, “It will come true thought the years” (message 19) and “The signs are in my words” (message 49).Slowly has the veil been lifted and the meaning uncovered. This is evidenced particularly in the many warnings the Lady gave the Church. She warned again and again that love, truth, and justice are lacking, and that people’s faith is only superficial. She encouraged the making of fundamental changes within the Church (messages 4, 5, and 7), and she presented a Church over which heavy clouds are gathering. Again and again the Lady points to Christ, to the Cross, “First back to Him, only then will there be true peace” (message 9). There will be no peace on earth until the Cross is truly planted in the midst of the world and everyone looks up to it as the center of creation. The Lady promises to help the world, and announces the coming of a new Spirit, a white Dove Who will send forth His rays. “I place my foot on the world. I will help them and lead them to the goal, but they must listen…” (message 5). 3

 

The next twenty-four messages, 1951-1954

On November 15, 1950, fifteen days following the proclamation of the dogma of the Assumption of Mary into Heaven, the Lady appeared standing on the globe, and for the first time she mentioned her new title: ‘The Lady of All Nations’. In the following year, 1951, the Lady dictated her short and simple prayer, directed to the Lord Jesus Christ, requesting the sending of the Holy Spirit. She gave instructions for the painting of her image and started to speak about the final Marian dogma: Coredemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate. 4

 

The last seven messages, 1954-1959

Of the final seven messages, given between 1954 and 1959, six of them were given on the 31st of May. In these messages we see the Lady in her heavenly glory. She speaks to the nations of the world, urgently admonishing them, and she shows humanity the way it must go. The series of messages ends with a heavenly vision of the glorified Lady and the Lord in His divine majesty. 5

 

The official position of the Church

Almost unnoticed and often in a miraculous way, the prayer, the image and the messages have found their way to the furthest corners of the earth. With ecclesiastical approval the prayer has been translated into more than sixty languages, and tens of millions of prayer cards of the Lady of All Nations have been distributed all over the world. Many requests were made that this public devotion receive ecclesiastical permission. These requests were often accompanied with reports of conversions, healings and other remarkable occurrences. These requests finally resulted in the granting of official ecclesiastical approval of the aforesaid public devotion-the first step towards full ecclesiastical approval of the apparitions themselves. This happened on May 31, 1996, when the bishops of the Diocese of Haarlem-Amsterdam, Bishop H.J.A. Bomers and Auxiliary Bishop J.M. Punt, issued a statement declaring that they have no objection to public devotion to Mary under the title ‘The Lady of All Nations’. As to the content of the messages, they state that the faithful are free to form their own opinion according to their conscience. 6

 

Church Approval of Our Lady of All Nations 7

On 31 May 2002 Bishop Jozef Marianus Punt of Haarlem, having concluded a period of investigation, declared the apparitions accorded Ida Perdemann of Amsterdam, Holland, in which the Blessed Virgin Mary asked to be known as Our Lady of All Nations, to be "of a supernatural origin". This decree ends a 45 year period of investigation and decision, as reflected in the following history:  (See Documentation Here)

 

7 May 1956 - Bishop of Haarlem finds no evidence of the supernatural nature of the apparitions, and prohibits public veneration.

2 March 1957 - Bishop of Haarlem confirms this decision with consent of the Holy Office (13 March 1957).

24 May 1972 - Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, responding to a letter of 29 March from the Bishop, re-affirms its decision.

27 June 1974 - CDF affirms its earlier decision, after a deeper investigation, inviting the faithful to discontinue all forms propaganda with regard to these alleged apparitions and revelations.

31 May 1996 - The then Bishop of Haarlem, Henry Bomers, published a Notification clarifying the distinction between the title, image and prayer, on one hand, and the messages on the other. The title, image and prayer had been approved for private veneration since the 1950s (according to this decree), and he was now granting the privilege of public veneration, as well. The belief in the messages had been prohibited, but now was permitted according to one's own conscience, the Church being unable to rule definitively "at the moment". As the decree notes, he consulted with "official authorities", without specifying who those authorities were.

3 December 1997 - The Bishop writes Letter (HB-97-403)  commending the "Action of The Lady of All Nations" and the work of Fr. Paul Maria Sigl, who has since appeared on Mother Angelica Live.

3 May 2002 - In a Letter of 3 May 2002, Raphael Soffner of the public affairs office of the diocese of Haarlem affirmed to EWTN that the public veneration of Our Lady of All Nations by title, image and prayer, is permitted to Catholics by decision of the Bishop of Haarlem, "with the consent of the Prefect of the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith in Rome". Catholics may make "a personal judgment according to their conscience" regarding the messages and apparition.

31 May 2002 - Bishop Punt declares the apparitions to be of supernatural origin.

 

The Expression "Who Once Was Mary"

In the approved prayer, the Blessed Virgin is referred to as Our Lady of All Nations "who once was Mary". It is explained by the promoters of the devotion in the following manner: This refers to the fact that Mary is no longer just Mary but rather The Lady, The Woman at the foot of the Cross. These words refer to her Eternal Motherhood over all of us, for she is Mother Whom Jesus gave to us from the Cross with the words: Woman behold thy Son! I might add that the Motherhood of Mary is eternal in the sense that it was foreseen by God,  along with the Incarnation of the Word, from all eternity. Similarly, the Church speaks of Mary as the Mother of God, not because she herself is eternal or Mother of the divine nature, but because He of whom she is Mother in the order of human nature is God, the Eternal Word

 

The importance of the messages of the Lady of All Nations

With great insistence the Lady asks people to listen to her messages, for “The Lord Jesus Christ wants to grant yet another great favor to the world, and that is the word, the voice of their mother, the Lady of All Nations” (message 50). She warns humanity that it is standing on the eve of great events, and she says, “The Kingdom of God is nearer than ever” (message 51). She predicts that the proclamation of the final Marian dogma --Coredemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate-- will mark the dawn of a new era, and she promises the coming of the Holy Spirit in the present time, for “This time is Our time” (message 27ff.).

 

 Many of the predictions given in the messages have since been fulfilled. The messages seem to be a preparation for the new millennium, and the year 2000 forms a clear marking point (message 40). The years ‘50’, ‘51-53’ and ‘54’, which are mentioned, seem more and more to refer to the years 1995-1999, and as such have 1945 as their point of reference, the year in which the Lady appeared for the first time. Following the 1996 granting of permission for this public devotion, the First International Day of Prayer of the Lady of All Nations was held in Amsterdam on May 31, 1997, bringing together around the image-around the throne of their Mother-bishops, priests and thousands of faithful from more than forty countries. On this very day the worldwide action was initiated anew for spreading the prayer, the image and the messages throughout all nations.

 

On May 31, 1998, the Second International Day of Prayer was held in Amsterdam. It received a large response, as it was attended by many bishops and more than ten thousand participants from around the world, with His Eminence Cardinal Stickler from Rome presiding at the Solemn Mass of Pentecost. One year later, on May 22, the Feast of Pentecost, thirteen bishops, over one hundred priests, and more than twelve thousand participants, representing more than eighty nations, attended the Third International Day of Prayer.

 

The messages are the announcement that the Holy Spirit will come anew upon the world. The Lady says: “Realize why I come as the Lady of All Nations. I come in order to bring all nations together in the Spirit, in the true Holy Spirit. People, learn to find the Holy Spirit. Strive after Righteousness, Truth and Love. Do not reject your brothers. Teach them to know the True Spirit” (message 44). Now more than ever, the Lady’s words seem appropriate for the present secularized world, a world estranged from its Creator, caught up in itself, and imprisoned in materialism.

 

Mary, Miriam, was chosen from among all women to be the temple of the Holy Spirit, the Mother of the Redeemer. Now, in this present time, she wants to be the Lady of All Nations, and as Coredemptrix, Mediatrix, and Advocate, to bring Grace, Redemption and Peace to all. 7

The Messages

 

1st MESSAGE March 25, 1945

 

Feast of the Annunciation, Palm Sunday

 

The Lady appears

It was March 25, 1945, the Feast of the Annunciation. My sisters and I sat talking in the drawing-room, around the pot-bellied stove. The war was still going on, and it was the time of the ‘hunger-winter’. Father Frehe[1] was in town that day and stopped by for a brief visit. We were in deep conversation when, all at once, I felt drawn to the adjoining room and suddenly saw a light appearing there. I got up and couldn’t help going towards it. The wall disappeared before my eyes, and with it everything that had been there. It was one sea of light and an infinite depth. And out of that depth I suddenly saw a figure coming forward, a living figure, a female form. I saw her standing to my left above me, dressed in a long, white garment and wearing a sash, very feminine. She was standing with her arms lowered and the palms of her hands turned outwards, towards me. As I looked, something strange came over me. I thought, “It must be the Blessed Virgin; it can’t be otherwise.”

 

 

Prediction of the liberation

Then, all at once, the figure begins to speak to me. She says,

 

“Repeat after me.”

 

I therefore begin––she speaks very slowly––to repeat after her, word-for-word. She raises first three, then four and finally five fingers, while telling me,

 

“The 3 is March, the 4 is April and the 5 is May 5th.”[2]

 

The Rosary and the prayer

Then she lets me see the Rosary and says,

 

“It is thanks to this. Persevere!”

 

She waits a little, and then says,

 

“The prayer must be spread.”

 

Then I see nothing but soldiers in front of me, many Allies, and the Blessed Virgin points at them. Then she takes the crucifix of the Rosary and points at the corpus. Then she points again at these soldiers. I should understand that it must become the life support of these soldiers, for that voice continues,

 

“Now they will soon go home, these.”

 

And she points at the troops.

 

The Lady, Mother

My sisters and Fr. Frehe had gathered around me. When he heard me begin speaking, he said to one of my sisters, “Just write down what she says.” After I had repeated a couple of sentences, I heard him say, “Listen, just ask who it is.”

 

And then I ask, “Are you Mary?” The figure smiles at me and answers,

 

“They will call me ‘The Lady’, ‘Mother’.”

 

A cross

The image fades away before my eyes and then I look into my hand. Then a cross is laid down before me and I have to take it up. I take it up very slowly, and it is heavy.

 

After that figure had said everything for me to repeat, she disappeared very slowly. Only then did the light also go away, and all at once I saw everything around me in the room as it


 

2nd MESSAGE

 

April 21, 1945

 

The image of the Lady

Suddenly I am placed in a church. Then I say, “I am standing in front of a special altar and see the image of the Lady.” It is a portrayal of the Lady, the way I saw her the first time. It is in the midst of flowers; even on the altar steps I see an incredible amount of flowers. Thousands of people are kneeling before it.

 

Peace in Christ

The image looks at me and waves her finger to and fro in warning. She says three times,

 

“You people will preserve peace if you believe in Him. Make this known.”

 

With these words, the Lady puts a crucifix in my hand, and she points at this crucifix which I have to show all around me.

 

New danger

After that she takes me, so to speak, out of the church, and there I see an unending emptiness before me. As I gaze into this void, however, I see human heads in it. It is as if I have to pick one out here and there, and then the image says to me,

 

“There are leaders who are plotting again.”

 

Israel will rise again

Then I see a scene of people fleeing and moving away, and I am given to understand: that is the exodus of the Jews from Egypt. As the Lady points at that exodus, she says,

 

“But Israel will rise again.”[1]

 

Above the scene of the exodus, I see a representation of God the Father in the clouds. He is holding His hand over His eyes, and the Lady tells me,

 

“And Yahweh is ashamed of His people.”

 

Cain and Abel - The stone tablets

Then I see a vivid representation of Cain and Abel. A large jawbone of a donkey is actually lying there. I see Cain taking flight.

 

After this I see someone wearing a long robe, with a beard, and two stone tablets in his hands. Written on these stone tablets is a language which I do not know at all. Then it seems like those two stone tablets are being smashed to pieces. I see the pieces lying in the sand.

 

The Miracle Procession

After this I am placed again before the altar. But suddenly it is as if I see a procession filing past outside the church. The Lady points it out to me and says,

 

“That is the Miracle Procession of Amsterdam.”

 

I see that procession going through the old downtown. There is also a priest there, walking in front with Our Lord.[2]

 

Then suddenly I see that procession moving on to this neighborhood––South Amsterdam––to a stretch of land. Then everything is gone again.

 

[1]On May 14, 1948, Israel was proclaimed an independent state.

 

[2] This procession was originally a Eucharistic procession, meaning that there was a priest carrying the Holy Eucharist. See Appendix I.


 

3rd MESSAGE

 

July 29, 1945

 

Jehovah is warning

I hear that voice again and then suddenly I see a sacrificial altar from ancient times. The smoke is descending. I hear that voice say,

 

“Jehovah is warning His people.”

 

Then I hear,

 

“Be faithful. They have scattered my lambs.”

 

At these last words I see lambs being scattered in all directions and going over the whole world.

 

Come, faithful ones

Now the Lady plants a Cross upon the sacrificial altar and I see, so to speak, the whole world gathered around it. The people, however, are standing there with their heads lowered and turned away from the Cross. Then I hear,

 

“Come, faithful ones.”

 

And I see a chalice being carried about, along the crowd.

 

“But partly in vain”,

 

I hear said.

 

Christ, the Way

I have to look upward and suddenly I see the Lady. She smiles and, extending her arms, she says,

 

“Come.”

 

A large number of men of all sorts are now standing before me: gentlemen, simple fellows, also priests and religious, dressed in black. Among them there are good people but also some not so good. The Lady invites them to come with her. She shall guide them. Now I see a long and difficult road before me, at the end of which there is a bright light.

 

“This way”,

 

says the Lady, and with a broad gesture she indicates to the men that they have to walk along this road. It is difficult and challenging. On both sides they are falling away. The Lady is watching with motherly concern, and keeps smiling at them. Then I see written before me, ‘Into life again, with Christ’.

 

England and America

After this the Lady looks sad and says,

 

“England will find her way back to me.”

 

She pauses for a moment and then says slowly and softly,

 

“America too.”

 

Then the Lady slowly disappears, and I see a peculiar haze hanging over the world.


 

4th MESSAGE

 

August 29, 1945

 

Sadness and joy

 

I see the Lady before me. She indicates that I should look into my hand. I see, so to speak, strange things coming out of it. I see a great sadness; this is put into my hand and I have to look at it. When I look into my hand, I feel a deep sadness arising. The Lady smiles and says,

 

“But joy will follow.”

 

At that moment I can also feel that joy. I see rays, bright rays.

 

One community

Next I see large buildings, churches. Churches of all sorts appear, that is, not only Catholic churches. The Lady says,

 

“It must become one large community.”

 

At these words I feel terrible pains in my hand. Storms are coming upon these churches.

 

Era of three Popes

Now the Lady lets me see three Popes. To the left, above, stands Pope Pius X. Our Pope, Pius XII, is standing in the middle, and to the right I see a new Pope.[1]Pointing at the three Popes, the Lady says,

 

“These three––that is one era. This Pope and the new one are the fighters.”

 

A new war

Then she refers to a new yet strange war,[2]much later, which will cause terrible disaster.

 

The formation of priests

Now I see lines of young priests passing by. The Lady says,

 

“A lot, however, has to be changed in the Church. The formation of priests will have to be changed: a more modern formation, suited to the times, yet good, in the good spirit.”

 

The Lady says the latter with emphasis.

 

I suddenly see a dove flying around my hand. It is being held, yet it is flying around continuously. The dove is sending forth new rays.

 

The Lady then points to the Pope, and says,

 

“Breadth has to come, more social. Various movements are tending towards socialism, which is good, but it can be done under the guidance of the Church.”

 

The Lady now looks very dejected and says,

 

“Very much has to be changed in the formation.”

 

I see great counter-currents, much opposition to this in the Church.

 

And then all of a sudden the Lady is gone.

 

[1]When in 1963 Cardinal Montini was chosen as Pope Paul VI and the visionary saw him on television, she immediately recognized him as this third Pope.

 

[2] When the visionary saw images of the Gulf War in 1991, she recognized it to be this war. She used the word ‘strange’, as rocket-warfare did not yet exist at that time.


 

5th MESSAGE

 

October 7, 1945

 

Our Lady of the Rosary

The Eastern peoples

I see a sun and a half-moon, and I am given to understand: that is the Far East. I see China with a red flag.[1]After that I see Muslims and all the other Eastern peoples. Above all those peoples I see red on one side and black on the other, but far less of the latter. I hear that voice saying,

 

“It seems that this is dwindling down to a minimum.”

 

The road to the castle

Then I see a long, beautiful road. I have to start along that road, but it is as if I have no mind for it. I represent humanity. Then I set off along that road. I feel so tired; yet I must plod on, very slowly. I am at the end of this road, and I am standing in front of a big castle with towers. The gate is opened from the inside. A hand beckons me to come in, but I do not want to; it is as if I have to step back. Yet I go in. Someone seizes me by the hand, and I see the woman in white, the Lady. She smiles at me and says,

 

“Come!”

 

My hand hurts––it is unbearable––but the Lady clasps it tightly and we go on.

 

The garden of justice

I come into a magnificent garden––splendidly beautiful––completely different from what you see here on earth. The Lady takes me to a certain spot and says,

 

“This is Justice; this they must seek outside, and it must be recovered; otherwise the world will be lost again.”

 

While saying this, the Lady points outside. It seems to me as if I could feel Justice.

 

My hand hurts so much, and I cannot bear it; but the Lady smiles and pulls me along.

 

The garden of truth

We go to another part of the garden and the Lady says, while moving her finger to and fro as if in warning,

 

“This is Truth. Listen carefully. Truth is also here inside, but not out there. Not at all”,

 

she adds. Truth comes over me as a feeling, too. I want to shake off her hand, and I say, “It is so heavy.”

 

The Catholic Church

But then the Lady points something out to me, and it is as if I am above something with a bird’s-eye view. I raise two fingers, and suddenly I see our Pope and beneath him the Vatican. Then I see the entire Church of Rome. In the sky above the Vatican I see written in large and clear characters, ‘Encyclical letters’.

 

“That is the good way”,

 

the Lady says to me with emphasis.

 

“But they are not being lived up to”,

 

she says sadly.

 

Once more I see the Vatican and the entire Catholic Church around it. The Lady looks at me and puts a finger to her lips, while saying to me,

 

“As a secret between you and me,”

 

and again she puts a finger to her lips and adds very softly,

 

“not always there either.”

 

Once more she smiles at me. She looks at me encouragingly and then says,

 

“But it can be righted.”

 

Keeping pace with the times

And then I see other churches of various confessions before me. The Lady raises her finger in warning, and, showing me the entire Catholic Church again, she says,

 

“The Catholic Church can certainly grow larger, but ...”

 

and then she breaks off and I see long lines of priests, students, nuns, etc., walking past me. Once more the Lady shakes her head and says with emphasis,

 

“It is too bad, but this is good for nothing.”

 

And again she says,

 

“This is good for nothing.”

 

She looks ahead severely. Then she points at the students, priests and clergy, and says with emphasis,

 

“A better formation, keeping pace with the times, more up-to-date, more social.”

 

A new, white dove

Then I see a black dove flying above our Church. “Not a white one,” I say, “but a black one.” The Lady points at that dove, saying,

 

“That is the old spirit which must disappear.”

I suddenly see that dove changing into a white one. The Lady says,

 

“This is a new, white dove. It is sending out its rays in all directions, for the world is tottering; a few more years and the world would perish. Yet He is coming and He will put the world in order, but ...”

 

and the Lady waits a while,

 

“they must listen.”

 

The Lady emphasizes the word ‘must’, as if warning again. Then she says,

 

“They want to go back, away from here; they do not want to come to this place; they are averse to it––the people.”

 

Take up the Cross

Then she again takes me along. We go further, very deep into the garden, and we come to a large Cross.

 

“Take it up; He has gone before you”,

 

the Lady says. I refuse, and feel as if the people of the whole world did the same and turned their backs upon the Cross. I am pulled by the hand and once more I see the Lady standing before me, with her hand in mine. She again says,

 

“Come.”

 

The Cross into the world

I now see a radiant, translucent figure in a long garment walking in front of us; it is a man’s figure but completely spiritualized. He is carrying a very large Cross; it is dragging along the ground. His face I cannot see; it is all one blaze of light. He is going into the world with the Cross, but no one is following Him.

 

“Alone”,

 

the Lady says to me.

 

“He is walking there, alone in this world. It is getting even worse until a certain moment when something dreadful happens and all at once the Cross is standing in the midst of the world. Now they have to look, whether they like it or not.”

 

The victory of the Cross

Then I see all sorts of strange images. I see swastikas beneath the Cross; I see them fall; then stars––they fall away; sickles and hammers––everything falls beneath that Cross. I see red; the red does not fall away completely. The Lady says,

 

“Everyone looks up. Now, all of a sudden, they want to, but at a cost ...

 

It was black on the globe, but now everything has brightened up. Now you see that everything passes; nothing lasts.”

 

The Rosary

My hand feels like it’s getting lighter now. All at once I see the Lady again with the Rosary, and she says,

 

“Keep on praying––the whole world!”

 

She points at the crucifix and says,

 

“The whole world, however, will have to return to it––great and small, poor and rich––but it will take effort.”

 

The Lady will help

Now I see the globe before me, and, placing her foot on it, the Lady says,

 

“I place my foot on the world. I will help them and lead them to the goal, but they must listen ...”

 

Then all at once I see everything go away before my eyes.

 

[1]Four years later, in 1949, the communistic People’s Republic of China was proclaimed, following a fierce civil war.


 

6th MESSAGE

 

January 3, 1946

 

Fight in England and Europe

 

I hear that voice say,

 

“England, be on your guard!”

 

Then I see England and in England a large church. I am given to understand: Westminster Abbey. Then I see a bishop; he is not of our Church. I am given to understand: that is a bishop of England. After this I see the Pope sitting before me; he looks very serious. Then I see that bishop again––this has to do with England. The Lady points out England to me, and then I see the word ‚Fight’ above the head of that bishop. A strange feeling overcomes me; it is as if everything within me were to change––I cannot explain how. I suddenly look up to my left and see the Lady again. She is dressed all in white, standing slightly above me. She is pointing something out to me. I look and I see England lying before me once more. The Lady says to me,

 

“There will be a fight all over Europe and beyond.”

 

A heavy, paralyzing feeling and a great spiritual weariness take hold of me. The Lady says,

 

“It is a heavy spiritual fight.”

 

Look at the Cross

Then the Lady says to me,

 

“Come”,

 

and she points at my hand. It is as if a Cross were placed in it. Now the Lady indicates what I should do. I move the hand with the Cross in it over the earth, and I have to let the Cross be seen. Then the Lady says to me,

 

“Yes, look at that Cross.”

 

I do so and as I am looking, the Cross leaves my hand and I make a fist. I must look at that too. Then the Lady says,

 

“Now look at the Cross again.”

 

And the Cross is again lying in my hand. Then the Lady moves her finger to and fro in warning and says,

 

“That Cross they want to change into other crosses.”

 

Now I see several things whirling around before my eyes: communism and a new kind of movement that will arise, a combination of the swastika and communism.

 

Fight

The Lady says,

 

“The Christians will become weary, because of all the fighting.”

 

She emphasizes the word ‘weary’, and I feel a spiritual weariness coming over me.

 

The Lady points at something in front of me and then I see a stretch of sand, a desert. A pulpit is placed in it. Then that pulpit disappears again and for a moment I see that desert before me again. I hear a voice calling something in a foreign language of former times. This repeats itself a few times before my eyes, very quickly.

 

Then the Lady points out something again, and I see the Vatican. It is as though it were spinning around in the midst of the world. In the Vatican I see the Pope with his head raised and two fingers uplifted. He is looking ahead seriously. Then I beat my breast three times.

 

Joan of Arc

Next I suddenly see someone on horseback, in full armor. When I ask who it is, I am told: Jeanne d’Arc.[1]

 

All of a sudden I see a big cathedral rising up behind her. I ask what church it is and I hear within me: that is the Cathedral of Reims. Then I see a procession going in the direction of that church. It is a procession of former times with someone on horseback. He is carrying a shield and a sword, and is surrounded by shield-bearers. I hear: Bourbon. I get the feeling: that is for later on.

 

Truth, love of neighbor, and righteousness

After that I have to look into my hands, and I represent humanity. “They are empty”, I tell the Lady. She is watching and then I must join them, while I look up at her. The Lady smiles at me. It is as though she moves down a step, and she says,

 

“Come.”

 

Then it is as if I were going with her across the world. Suddenly a terrible tiredness comes over me, and I tell the Lady, “I am so tired, so hopelessly tired.” I feel that way throughout my entire body. But the Lady takes me along further and further.

 

Then I look ahead of me and see the word ‚Truth’ written in very large letters. I read it aloud and then we continue again. The Lady shakes her head. She looks very serious and sad and says to me,

 

“Do you see love of neighbor?”

 

I look again into my hands and say, “Those hands are empty.” She takes me by the hand again and we go on. As I see an unending emptiness before me, I hear the Lady ask,

 

“Righteousness, justice, where are these?”

 

Jericho

Then once more I see the Cross standing in the midst of the world, and the Lady points at it. I have to take it up, but I turn my head away. It is as if I were humanity and would throw the Cross away from me.

 

“No,”

 

says the Lady,

 

“that must be taken up and placed in the center. There will be a certain category of people who will fight, will fight for this, and I shall lead them on to it.”

 

As she says this, a terrible pain seizes my whole body, such that I groan and say to the Lady, “Oh, this is so painful!”

 

After that I hear a voice crying out very loudly,

 

“Jericho!”

 

And the Lady has gone back to her place above me. She looks down, looks down at me and says,

 

“What I have told you must be made known. There will be no peace beforehand.”

 

Spiritual fight

After that I see the Pope before me again with quite a number of clerics and other gentlemen around him. “They seem to be in conference”, I say. They are having fierce discussions, and it sometimes seems that they are angry. The Lady says,

 

“This is the spiritual fight which is going about the world. This is much worse than the other, and the world is being undermined.”

 

Ego sum

Then I go, so to speak, across the world, and it is as if I burrow into the ground. It is as if I go further and further below the surface, passing through all kinds of tunnels. It suddenly comes to an end, and all at once I hear the words,

 

“I am here.”

 

Then I hear a voice saying,

 

“Ego sum”,[2]

 

and then I softly say, “And the world is small.” After this the Lady says, pointing with her finger,

 

“Go and spread it.”

 

And all at once everything is gone.

Europe, be warned

 

Suddenly I see the Lady standing before me. She waves her finger to and fro in warning and says,

 

“Look over Europe, and warn the peoples of Europe.”

 

The Lady looks very serious and says,

 

“Ora et labora”,[1]

 

and again she waves her finger to and fro in warning. Next the Lady lets me see a wolf. It keeps walking back and forth before me. Suddenly the animal disappears. Then she lets me see a sheep’s head with horns going around it, all intertwined. Then the Lady says again,

 

“Europe must be on its guard; warn the peoples of Europe.”

 

Conflicts and disasters

After this she lets me see Rome; very clearly I see the Vatican rotating. Now the Lady seems to beckon me with her finger, and she says,

 

“Come; look carefully at this.”

 

Then she raises three fingers and then her whole hand, that is, five fingers. She repeats this for me a few times.

 

“Look carefully and listen”,

 

she says,

 

“The East against the West.”

 

Then I hear the Lady say again,

 

“Be on your guard, Europe!”

 

Now, suddenly, I see England before me. The Lady seems to take a step down and it is as if she places her foot on England. I look closely and see the Lady join her hands. Then she warns again; I hear her say,

 

“Woe to you, England!”

 

The Lady beckons me again to look carefully. Then all at once I see Rome before me again and the Pope seated. In his hand the Pope has an open book which he lets me see. I cannot see what kind of book it is. Then the Pope shows that book in all directions. I hear the Lady say,

 

“But much has to be changed there.”

 

She points towards where the Pope is. She looks very serious and shakes her head. Again the Lady raises three fingers and then five fingers. Suddenly a feeling of confusion seizes me, and I hear the Lady say,

 

“New disasters are again coming upon the world.”

 

Let the little ones come to Me

All at once I see a plain before me; a large egg is placed on it, and, as I watch, I see an ostrich running swiftly away.

 

Then I see lots of black children before me. Then once more I see a warning sign, and I see white children. I am shown a scene––it is as if Our Lord is standing with children all about Him. It is a luminous figure I see. I hear,

 

“Let the little ones come to Me.”

 

And I see written, ‘Children must be raised in Christian teaching’.

 

The landing on the moon

Next I see a strip of a map before me. I hear,

 

“Judea”,

 

and I see written, ‘Jerusalem’. Then all of a sudden I see two lines with arrows at the ends; on the one it says ‘Russia’ and on the other ‘America’.

 

Then it is as if I would come to stand above the globe with the Lady. She points something out to me and I see the moon before me very clearly. Something is flying towards it. I see it reaching the moon. I say, “There’s something going down onto that moon.” It is as if I were floating in the air. It is so strange around me and I say, “A kind of natural phenomenon.”

 

Unity in Europe - England

Then I hear the Lady say,

 

“Peoples of Europe, join together. Things are not in order here.”

 

In the middle of Europe I see Germany, and it is as if that country wants to wriggle out of its place. Then I see England again, and I have to hold the crown firmly now with both hands. It is as if this crown were swaying, and I would have to put it firmly over England. I hear,

 

“England, be well aware of your task. England, you will have to go back to the Highest, the Highest!”[2]

 

And now all at once the Lady is gone.

 

[1]Latin for ‘Pray and work’.

[2]These last two words, ‘the Highest’, were actually said in English by the Lady.

Truth has been lost

 

I see a bright light and the Lady standing above me. She is pointing downward and I see Europe lying before me. The Lady shakes her head. At her feet I see what looks like little angels, and as I look at them, they fold their wings over their faces. Then a great light appears around the Lady. The more I look at the earth, the darker it gets there; the Lady points this out to me. I look up at her again, but she points at the earth with a stern look on her face, and there I see in that darkness, written in large letters, ‘Truth’. All at once I see the little angels again at her feet, and their wings cover their faces once more. The Lady tells me,

 

“You must warn them; Truth has been lost.”

 

I say to myself, “How can I do that?” The Lady points down and says,

 

“Go and spread it”,

 

and she points her finger at the earth. There I see many clerics and

 

churches, but vaguely.

 

The Cross in the midst of the world

Again the Lady points at the world, and she says,

 

“See whether you can find Him.”

 

I look and look and tell her, “I am getting so tired, and a terrible pain is filling me.” Suddenly I see a large, long Cross coming down from her. It is as if someone is dragging it along, but I do not see the person, only the Cross. The Cross goes all the way down to the earth, and suddenly I see it standing in the midst of the world. I look again at the Lady, and I see a long line––it seems like pilgrims to me––moving along.

 

Truth, faith and love

The Lady says to me,

 

“Look”,

 

and she traces a semicircle, a curve, over the world. She seems to write in it, and I read the words aloud. ‚Truth’––this is in the middle. Then she writes a word on the left, and I read ‚Faith’, then on the right, and I read ‚Love’. The Lady points to it and says,

 

“Go and spread it!”

 

Then she points at the curve again, and says,

 

“That has to come back. To all appearances it is there, but in reality it is not.”

 

And she looks terribly sad.

 

Disaster upon disaster

After this I have to say, “Disaster upon disaster, natural disasters.” Then I see the words ‘Hunger’ and ‘Political Chaos’. The Lady says,

 

“This goes not only for your country, but for the whole world.”

 

I feel a terrible pain and say, “That is yet a period of pressure and pain, which is still going on throughout the world.” I then see the word ‘hopeless’.

 

It suddenly gets light around me, and I see the Lady, so to speak, coming down. She points out to me those three words, ‘Truth’, ‘Faith’ and ‘Love’. The Lady laughs and says to me,

 

“But there is a lot to be learned.”

 

Ecce Homo

She suddenly points to the right and I see someone with a long white beard, seated. He is wearing a long robe and is holding two fingers together, pointed upward. Under his elbow lies a thick book and in front of him a large key.

 

That scene disappears and the Lady says again,

 

“Look.”

 

And now she lets me see something else. It is a large stone and on top of it lies a lamb. I hear the words:

 

“Ecce Homo.”[1]

 

All at once the Lady is gone, and the light too.

The Divine Child

 

Once again I see the Lady standing before me. She has a child on her arm. He has a halo around his head and he is radiating light on all sides. It is as if the Lady comes down and now I see her standing on a globe. The globe rotates continuously beneath her. The Lady looks at me and says,

 

“Come, follow me.”

 

I go along behind her, and it is as if we are walking over the globe. The Lady turns to me and says,

 

“Him”

 

––and she points at the Child––

 

“I want to bring into that world again.”

 

But as she says this, she shakes her head again and again. I look at that Child, and as I look that 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 lying entirely in darkness. Then I hear the Lady call,

 

“Bring Him back into that world!”

 

And she points at the fragmented Cross.

 

Back to Him

Now suddenly I see the Cross complete again, planted in the midst of the world. All sorts of people are standing around it, but with heads turned away. I suddenly feel very tired and tell this to the Lady. But she smiles at me.

 

Then suddenly I see her sitting on a kind of armchair. She has the Child with her again, on her lap. The Child radiates light in all directions.

 

The Lady says,

 

“First back to Him, only then will there be true peace.”

 

She stresses the word ‘true’. Then words appear around the Lady in a curve. I have to read aloud, ‘Truth’. “Again?” I say and look at the Lady. She nods ‘yes’, This is in the middle. Then I read on the left ‘Justice’, and on the right ‘Love of Neighbor’.

 

Christus Regnum

After reading this, I see at her feet a stone lion with a halo of translucent light around its head. Behind the armchair I see towers and churches appearing. And I see bishops. “Not of our Church”, I say. I am given to understand: that is the Church of England. While I watch this, a cross is formed through it in the form of an ‘X’. And I see the Lady smiling. The Child on her lap is suddenly bigger; He stands upright now and has a chalice in His hand.

 

Then I see a ladder appear beside all this, and it is as though I go up it. I come to the top of that ladder and suddenly see large before me the following sign: an ‘X’ with a ‘P’ across it.[1]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 am warning”,

 

and she looks very serious and points at the chalice. I hear her say,

 

“Christus Regnum”,[2]

 

and then I see Jerusalem lying before me––this I am given to understand. There is a fight there. All of a sudden I see Armenian priests before me. Then I hold up two fingers. Again I see the Lady seated on her chair with everything around her, and now I see the Church of England, a Russian Church, an Armenian Church and many other churches. They continuously whirl around through one another. The Lady looks worried and I hear her say,

 

“Rome, be on guard!”

 

She stresses these words and clenches her fist.

 

And then all at once the Lady is gone.

Pentecost

Urbi et Orbi

Once again I see the Lady standing before me. She moves her finger to and fro in warning, and she says, as if speaking to the world,

 

“Urbi et Orbi.[1]For the moment that is the most important.”

 

Working and watching

The Lady comes down, and in her shawl she is carrying a little Child with her, a glorified Child. She signals me to follow her, and I walk along behind her. The Lady lays that Child in the midst of the world, and the Child starts to cry very loudly. The Lady points to that Child and says,

 

“You people who are for Him, be watchful! I cannot warn you enough.”

 

Then I look again at that place, but the Child is suddenly gone. The Lady looks dejectedly into the world and says,

 

“These are not to be found among men: Righteousness, Truth and Love.”

 

After that it is as if the Lady stares intently in front of herself, and she says,

 

“Disaster upon disaster! For a second time I tell you this: as long as these are missing, there can be no true peace. By praying and especially by working for the good and not just praying. Working and keeping watch.”

 

A new disaster

Then I suddenly see that the Lady has stepped aside. Now I am shown a very repulsive sight. From the other direction something like demons are coming towards me, figures whirling around through one another, with horns on their heads, awkward paws and horrible faces. Then I hear the Lady say,

 

“I predict a great, new disaster in the world.”

 

This the Lady says very sadly and warningly. Then she says,

 

“If people would only listen ...”

 

And she keeps on shaking her head.

 

Then I see a short span of time and hear,

 

“Seemingly things will go well for a short time.”

 

Next I see the globe, and the Lady points at it. I see glaring lights and rays, and the globe seems to explode on all sides. Then the Lady points at the sky. She stands to my right, that is, in the West, and she points to the East. I see a great number of stars in the sky, and the Lady says,

 

“That is where it comes from.”

 

Struggle against the Pope

Suddenly I see a cardinal’s hat lying before me. Around the hat are ribbons which hang down. On it an X-sign appears as if that hat would be crossed out. I hear the Lady say,

 

“There will be a struggle in Rome against the Pope.”

 

I see lots of bishops sitting around the Pope, and then I hear,

 

“Catastrophic.”

 

Then the Lady goes away.

Threat to the world

I see the Lady standing. She says,

 

“Let them seek support in the Truth!”

 

She lets me, so to speak, feel over the world with my hand, and I get such a terrible pain in it. The Lady says,

 

“This is the world at present.”

 

I go over it again with my hand. Then I see an image of the world as I am now familiar with it. Then that image changes and it now, all of a sudden, has become a completely different world. The Lady says,

 

“This is the future world; it is very heavy. The world will destroy itself.”

 

The Lady says the latter sadly, and in a way as if she wants to warn the people: if you go on like this, the world will destroy itself.

 

Rome, be warned

Then the Lady takes, so to speak, the globe in her hand and rotates it. She says,

 

“It has to get better again, but ...”

 

I look at what the Lady is pointing at and see all kinds of churches; I get the feeling that they are not Catholic churches. In the middle I see Rome. The Lady again shakes her finger to and fro in warning and says,

 

“Rome, be warned!”

 

Then I see the Church of England––this I am given to understand. I feel that a change is coming there.

 

Love of Neighbor, Righteousness, Truth

The Lady comes a step nearer and says,

 

“Look.”

 

Suddenly I see a bunch of all kinds of church-towers all close to one another. Then the Lady takes an iron band. She puts this band around the bundle of towers and ties it up. We watch this together. Then she lets go of the band and says three times in succession:

 

“Up high!”

 

As she says this, she raises her hands a bit higher each time. Then she starts writing words above that church, and I read aloud, ‘Love of Neighbor’. This she puts directly above the towers. Then on the right, but lower down, she writes, ‘Righteousness’. Then she goes to the left and there she writes, ‘Truth’. In the meantime I hear the Lady say,

 

“All this is not really to be found yet. How many times have I already said this!”

 

And she shakes her head compassionately.

 

All of a sudden I see Rome again. The Lady points to it and says,

 

“I cannot warn enough that they should truly practice this in the right way.”

 

Broad-minded

After this I see great changes coming about, which the Lady lets me see. I see the following: huge red waves penetrating deeper and deeper into the world. The longer I look, the further they go. I hear the Lady say,

 

“That is good, but ... more spiritual, genuinely in truth, righteousness and love of neighbor.”

 

Then it is as if years later I would see completely different spiritual movements arising. The Lady says,

 

“Once again I warn Rome. Broad-minded ... they have to be broad-minded, but ...”

 

And as the Lady points at those words, everything is suddenly gone.

View of Italy

I hear that voice and I look. I feel a sense of heaviness coming over me and I hear it said,

 

“There is heavy pressure there”,

 

and I clearly see Italy lying before me. It is as if a heavy thunderstorm breaks over it. I have to listen, and I hear,

 

“Exile.”

 

I pass, so to speak, above Italy, and it is as if I must deal blows. Then I hear,

 

“It is as if blow after blow would hit there.”

 

Politico-Christian struggle

In the meantime I see the northernmost and southernmost parts of Italy lying before me very clearly. In between I see central Italy. An icy silence reigns there. There are no people, nothing, only a dead silence. Then I see a large dome arise. Suddenly it starts to rain over it, harder and harder and with heavier drops. Then I suddenly see that they are not ordinary raindrops, but drops of blood falling from the sky upon that dome.

 

In the distance I see a Cross standing in the light and I hear,

 

“This will be a great politico-Christian struggle––Church politics.”

 

Secret meetings in the Vatican

Then all of a sudden I see a large room in the Vatican, and the Pope is seated there. Something seems to be going on in the Vatican. The Lady says,

 

“Secret meetings are being held there. This is happening several times. They assemble in secret.”

 

The Lady points at somebody, and I am given to understand: that is an envoy from America. In front of the Pope there are all sorts of papers. The Lady says,

 

“The Pope is kept informed of everything. He is completely informed about what is going to happen. It is said that there is peace, but in reality it is not so. It is all camouflage before the world.”

 

Then twice I have to move my right hand over my left, and I hear,

 

“That will happen twice.”

 

And I see a kind of point of time.

The Cross

I see the Lady, and I hear,

 

“Rome threatened!”

 

After that a big ‘4’ appears before me and around it a circle. Then that image vanishes and a Cross appears before me with four equal beams. A circle appears around that, too, and in the center of the Cross I read ‘I H S’.[1]It is as if I would take this Cross up and I show it around me. Now I suddenly see crowds of people standing around us. They are looking at it, but many with aversion.

 

Waves over Europe

Then I see heavy, thick clouds appearing over Europe and under them huge waves engulfing Europe. Then I see the Lady standing in a glaring, bright light. She is dressed in white. She keeps her arms extended, and from her hands emanates a thick beam of rays. I have to hold up my hand and that beam of rays seems to come into my hand. I feel it aglow and tingling. The Lady smiles at me and points at that hand, while she nods in approval. I do not know what this means. Then the Lady’s face becomes drawn and she looks very sad. She points at those heavy clouds and waves, and she says,

 

“They will first have to perish by that flood, and only then ...”

 

and then I see those words written down. After ‘only then’, I see many dots, as if something is to follow which must remain hidden.

 

Then the Lady’s face brightens, and I see the water evaporate as steam. For a moment the sun seems to break through. Again the Lady points out the earth to me, and I notice that everything has cleared up. And now I see lots of bones of human beings scattered over the ground, parts of skulls, arms and legs. It is a horrible sight. I hear the Lady say,

 

“This is the perdition. But go and work, work ...”

 

Righteousness, love of neighbor, justice

Then she points upwards and says,

 

“Read.”

 

Then I see letters appear and I read, ‘Righteousness’. After that I feel a terrible pain in my hand; it feels as heavy as lead. Then I hear the Lady say,

 

“Just read on”,

 

and I see in large letters before me, ‘Love of Neighbor’. I see dripping icicles appearing all over it. Then I hear that voice saying,

 

“Read on!”

 

But when I want to read, I cannot read anything, because of the flames playing around the letters. For a moment the flames clear away and I read ‘Justice’.

 

A soldiers’ cemetery

After this the Lady points and I see a soldiers’ cemetery with countless rows of white crosses. I see them fall over, one after the other––all falling backwards. Once again the Lady points and I see new white crosses appearing. As far as my eyes can reach, they are rising out of the ground. Then I hear the Lady say,

 

“This is the message I bring today.”[2]

 

After this I see her slowly disappear in the light. I feel a great emptiness around me, and it is as if everything on earth looks dreary.

 

 

[1] IHS stands for 1) The first three letters of ‘Jesus’ in Greek (IHSOYS), and 2) the Latin acronym for ‘Iesus Hominum Salvator’, which means, ‘Jesus, the Savior of Men’.

[2]This is the first time that the Lady uses the word ‘message’.

The world torn in two

All at once I see a glaring light and I feel a pain arising in my hand––it is just like a beam of rays. I see the Lady and she says,

 

“Disasters will take place from north to south and from south to west and from west to east.”

 

Now I see a round dome. I am given to understand: that is a dome of Jerusalem. I hear now,

 

“In and around Jerusalem heavy battles will be waged.”

 

All at once I see Cairo clearly, and I get a strange feeling about it. Then I see various Eastern peoples: Persians, Arabs and so on. The Lady says,

 

“The world is, so to speak, going to be torn in two.”

 

Now I see the world lying before me and in it a great crack appearing, a break winding right over the world. Heavy clouds are hanging over it, and I feel great sorrow and misery. I hear the Lady say,

 

“Great sorrow and misery will come.”

 

Then I see Eastern places with white-roofed houses.

 

The Cross

I feel something heavy in my hand. While looking there, a Cross appears in it. I have to stand it upright on the ground. The Cross is heavy and sways in all directions, continuously to and fro, from the left to the right, backward and forward. For a moment it looks as though it would fall forward, but then it straightens up. It seems to be lighter now and standing firmly in the earth. I now have to look at the ground and I see bones and helmets lying under the Cross. Then I receive a large key in my hand. I have to drop it immediately. It falls in-between the bones and helmets. Then I see lines of young men passing by me; they are soldiers. I hear that voice say,

 

“Stand by our boys with spiritual aid.”

 

Then I see white graves arise, lots of small white crosses.

 

Then I feel a pain in my hand and I see America and Europe lying side by side. After this I see written: ‘Economic warfare, Boycotting, Currencies, Disasters’.

 

The sundial is reversed

Then I see several figures whirling through one another very quickly. The first things I can make out are torches, which are casting their light in three directions: to the west, north and east. Then I see blue and white stripes intermingling, and then stars––it just looks like flags. After that I see the sickle and hammer, but the hammer breaks away from the sickle, and now all those things are whirling through one another. Then I see a half-moon and a sun; these flags, too, commingle with the rest. Finally a sort of springbuck appears with big horns pointed backwards. It looks to me like an African springbuck. That buck takes enormous jumps over all of this. While all these things are whirling through one another, a circle appears to the left, and through this the globe is turning. After that I suddenly see a large sundial. I hear the Lady say,

 

“The sundial is reversed.”

 

Hellish inventions

Then I see a very peculiar scene. I have to look at the sky, and something seems to be launched into it. There is something flying past me so rapidly that I can hardly see it. It is shaped like a cigar or a torpedo, and its color is like that of aluminum.

 

 

All of a sudden I see something shooting off from the back. I feel about with my hand, and different terrible sensations come over me. At first a total numbness. I live and yet I do not live. Then I see horrible images of people before me. I see faces, wide faces, covered with dreadful ulcers, something like leprosy. Then I feel terrible deadly diseases: cholera, leprosy––everything those people have to suffer.

 

Then that is gone again, and I see tiny little black things floating about me. I try to feel what it is, but that is not possible. It seems to be very fine matter. With my eyes I cannot discern what it is. It is as if I would have to look through something, and below I now see brilliant white fields. Upon those fields I see those little black things, but enlarged, and it is as if they are alive. I don’t know how to describe this properly. I ask the Lady, “Are these bacilli?” She answers very seriously,

 

“It is hellish.”

 

Then I feel my face and my whole body swelling. It feels like my face gets very bloated, and everything is stiff and swollen. I cannot move. I hear the Lady say,

 

“And that is what they are inventing,”

 

and then very softly,

 

“that Russian, but the others as well.”

 

After this the Lady says emphatically,

 

“Peoples, be warned!”

 

And then the Lady goes away.

Easter

The struggle begins

I see the Lady and she says,

 

“Justice will be the point at issue. Within a very short time grave things are going to happen. These will be preceded by chaos, disorder, doubt and despair. Above St. Peter’s heavy clouds will hang, which will be dispersed with much struggle and difficulty. Otherwise, perdition.

 

All Christians must join forces. That will be accompanied by great pain and misery. Join forces, all of you, for the struggle begins. The gates are opening. The Eastern peoples are holding their hands before their faces in Jerusalem. They will wail over their city. There is a large well in which you all can wash yourselves.”[1]

 

Then I see written: ‘Righteousness’, ‘Love’ and ‘Justice’. The Lady says,

 

“As long as these words are not kept before people’s eyes and are not lived in their hearts, there will be no peace in sight.”

 

Then I see a Cross planted in the ground. A snake is wriggling around it, and everything around me is growing black and dark.

 

Next I see a sword hanging over Europe and the East. From the West a light is coming. I hear the Lady say very seriously,

 

“Christian peoples, the heathens will teach it to you.”

 

Search your hearts

Then I see the Pope and around him a reinforced bodyguard. There are also other people around him; it seems to me they are all clerics––bishops and cardinals. While pointing at these clerics, the Lady says,

 

“Snares and traps.”

 

Having said this, the Lady looks at me intently. Heavy clouds are hanging over St. Peter’s. Then the Lady says to all those who are sitting around the Pope,

 

“Be righteous and act according to your teaching. Cover your eyes with your hands, and search your hearts.”

 

Then it is as if I would again receive a Cross in my hand, and it hurts. It is so heavy that I can scarcely hold it. The Lady says,

 

“Grip it tightly.”

 

It is as if large rays would stream forth from it.

 

Then suddenly the Lady is gone, and so is the light.

 

[1] Here there is a striking resemblance to the words of Zechariah 13:1, “When that day comes, a fountain will be opened ... to wash sin and impurity away.”

May 7, 1949

 

I have to raise two fingers, and then I see a bishop in full pontificals. After that I see a stone bier upon which a high clergyman, also of stone, is lying. At the head of the stone bier a cardinal’s hat is lying, and above that a sword and a crown. That sword is lying diagonally, partly beside the hat, and, because the bier is slanted, it points downwards diagonally.

 

The darkness of the times

Then I am placed before a large gate. It is opened before me and I have to enter. Someone in a long gown is standing before the gate. I shudder at the thought of stepping across the threshold. Suddenly I see that it is the Lady. She says,

 

“Take that step.”

 

Then we come into a large space which is circular. In that space there is an unending depth and darkness. The Lady says,

 

“That is a dark spot. You must penetrate very deeply into it. It is the depth and the darkness of the times.”

 

The least of my children

Then all at once I see the Lady seated, dressed in mourning, with a white veil draped over her head. She has very old features and she is sitting stooped. She says,

 

“We are here in the darkness; it is the degeneration of humanity.”

 

Then I see a crucifix before me. The corpus slides down from it, so that the Cross is left bare. The Lady says very sadly,

 

“The Way of the Cross is starting over again.”

 

I see deep wrinkles and big tears on the Lady’s face. After this I go with her deeper into the darkness. We walk on and on and I see nothing but darkness. “Oh, what is that?” I ask. We enter a grotto. The Lady lets me, so to speak, feel the stone; it is a grotto of natural stone. Then suddenly some straw appears in it, and a child is laid upon the straw. Many people are coming in from all around, very ordinary people. The Lady says,

 

“Ordinary people, the least of my children. They can no longer find any room––entire crowds.”

 

She keeps on repeating,

 

“The least of my children.”

 

Now, before my eyes, that cave changes into a church. Immediately after that I see countless rows of churches, and then again that one church. Just as in the cave, there is straw there, and a little child is laid upon it. This is again not an ordinary child, but a heavenly, radiant, and spiritualized Child.

 

Now the Lady takes me along all those churches and points out to me nothing but empty pews. She says,

 

“Do you see the mistake? Emptiness.”

 

And then many white plates, like name plates, appear on those pews. The Lady asks again,

 

“Do you see the mistake?”

 

Now she stretches out her hand over all those rows of pews, and then I see that those pews are bare––all the name plates are gone.

 

“The least of my children”,

 

that voice says again; and then it is as though the Lady wants to fill up those pews with people.

 

Then I see a bishop. The Lady says,

 

“Tell this; tell this.”

 

And she points at those churches. Then she says,

 

“The world, and above all the Church, must be detached from everything.”

 

Fight

Then I see St. Peter’s. I see the Pope seated with his head bowed and his bodyguard around him. All that is also placed in the cave. Then the Lady writes a large ‘P’ with an ‘X’ across it. This she puts down at his feet, and in front of it is placed the Cross, the long beam pointed upwards––thus upside down. The Lady says,

 

“Where are your soldiers?”

 

The Pope is sitting with his fingers raised, and above his head is written, ‘Fight’. I see more and more fighting. Then suddenly I see soldiers wearing high caps standing behind the Pope; they are raising two fingers.

 

Conflict and degeneration

The Lady says,

 

“Then a great conflict will arise in the world.”

 

And I see two powers opposing one another.

 

All at once I see a large field of waving corn; it is moving to and fro very slowly.

 

Then I hear the Lady say twice,

 

“Degeneration!”

 

Then she says,

 

“Russia will do everything in pretence. There will be a complete revolution.”

 

Now I see the earth, and it is as if it makes a turn. Then the Lady says,

 

“Nature is changing too.”

 

I hear,

 

“Christ is no more.”

 

I go looking around and hear,

 

“Realism, a spirit of realism.”

 

I also see that spirit, so to speak.

 

The spirit they did not understand

Then I have a very beautiful vision. We arrive inside the cave again and I see, so to speak, all the fruits and riches of the earth being put into that cave. Now the Lady looks very cheerful, and she says to me,

 

“We are going to distribute this.”

 

But then she suddenly gets very serious and says,

 

“This was the spirit they did not understand.”

 

And meanwhile it is as if she is distributing.

 

Now the Lady lets me see the bare Cross and lays it down flat on the floor of the cave.

 

Forces of nature

Suddenly I find myself above the earth; the globe is beneath us. I now see something quite peculiar, something that is unfamiliar to us. In the middle there is an area, intensely blue and of unending depth. Round about it appear rings––circles of beautiful colors––fading off into one another. They are colors that are unfamiliar to us. As I float there in the air, I am suddenly pulled down as if by a magnet. The Lady says,

 

“These are forces of nature. You will hear about them.”

 

It seems to me that it is for later on. We continue on our way and come above those rings or circles into an infinite light, a very strange and peculiar light. Then we come above another circle, which is very heavy to me. My hands and my whole body become numb; it is as if I were floating, going up and down. Then I feel some kind of pain, a terrible pain. I don’t know what this has to do with it.

 

This image disappears and now I see the Lady pointing at something. She says,

 

“That is the bright circle.

 

The Church surrounded

And now I suddenly see St. Peter’s again, next to it the Church of England, then the Armenian Church and then the Russian Church; this I am again given to understand. A cord is encircling them all. Then I

 

see the Pope sitting at the head, holding the two ends. Behind this, behind the Pope and those churches, I vaguely hear the word: “Atheists”. They form a semicircle around it all. Then another curve appears around it. Thus the Church is, so to speak, surrounded. I hear the Lady say very sadly and emphatically,

 

“We will not make it this way.”

 

Then I see a donkey with people taking to flight. A woman with a little child is sitting on the donkey. Both are shining figures. It is a scene from the East.

 

A divided world

Then I see Europe lying before me and next to it America. It is as if I would seize something from the middle of North America and sprinkle it over Europe. I do not know what it is.

 

Then in the distance I see a multitude of Eastern peoples.

 

“These he will rouse”,

 

says the Lady. I see this in the far distance.

 

Then a skull appears, and I hear the Lady say,

 

“A great disaster will occur. That will get their attention. The Eastern seas are full; you do not see that.”

 

Now I have to trace a line from north to west, slanting downward. I do not know what this means. Then the Lady says,

 

“They are looking for peace, but it is not to be found.”

 

And now the Lady goes away

Christ persecuted

I see the Lady. She says,

 

“My child, I am helping you. Have confidence––in difficult moments too.”

 

She puts a Cross in my hand; it is so heavy! The Lady says,

 

“Child, you shall carry the Cross around.”

 

Now I see written before me, ‘1950’ and then ‘1951-1953’.

 

Then I see St. Peter’s in front of me. Drops are falling upon it––tears or rain. Then the Lady says,

 

“Warn that it is not going well this way. My Son is being persecuted again. Take the Cross and plant it in the center! Only then will there be peace.”

 

War on the Balkans - England

Then suddenly I see the Balkans. There is war there; they are fighting again. The Lady says,

 

“Child, there will be a severe fight. We are not yet out of this fight.

 

Economic disasters will come.

 

England’s empire is tottering.”

 

Now I see the crown of England with a rope attached to it. They are pulling that crown from all sides in order to keep it balanced above that country.

 

Then I see the Pope and a patriarch.

 

Russia

Then the Lady says,

 

“Come along to Russia.”

 

I now see Russia. The Lady takes me along to glass buildings, underground too––all kinds of people are working there. These seem to be Germans, Frenchmen, Poles, but others too; I hear them speaking

 

different languages. It seems to be deep in Russia, somewhere in the great uninhabited plains of northern Russia. The Lady says,

 

“They are making chemicals there. America, be warned! Intervene, do intervene!

 

Not only human lives are at issue here, but higher powers. Bring faith into the world again. But the faithful ...”

 

and the Lady shakes her head.

 

“Live according to it––Love of Neighbor––for Love is the first commandment! Righteousness comes next.”

 

The Danube countries

Now I travel, so to speak, with the Lady down the Danube. She points all around her and says,

 

“Work has to be done here; work has to be done there.”

 

And she points from left to right.

 

“It must return to God. The people are ripe for it. The top leaders, however, do not want to.”

 

And then all of a sudden the Lady is gone.

Italy and Germany

The Lady is there again. She lets me see Italy, saying,

 

“Those in high positions have to take the lead there. Mere words avail nothing. Deeds!”

 

Then it is as if I would see St. Peter’s tottering. The Lady says,

 

“In Italy they have to work better against communism. Warn them of the situation in Germany and Italy; they can still be saved. I say this now so that you may tell them to work against the degeneration of Germany. The people are good, but they are led astray by circumstances. We have to bring the Cross there again and plant it in the center. They have to begin to reawaken the faith among the youth and instill it anew. If hard work is not done in Italy, it will perish. The least of my children must be roused.”

 

Praying

Then it is as if the Lady takes a great crowd of people to a certain spot. While watching this, I see the Lady pushing these people towards an altar, upon which a large Cross is standing. Then she says,

 

“This is the work of the mighty ones of this world, but ...”

 

And then she moves her finger to and fro and keeps shaking her head.

 

“For that reason they all have to work together. Pass it on!”

 

the Lady says.

 

“They have to pray even more. Pray to ward off degeneration. The whole world will destroy itself if this is not done. That is why I showed you this.”

 

And now all of a sudden the Lady is gone.

Germany - Modern paganism

I see the Lady standing before me. She says,

 

“Child, I am bringing you a message for Germany again. It must be saved.”

 

Then the Lady takes me above Germany. As I see Germany lying there I feel the situation there: a terrible decline of the country, the people, and the youth––and a great apostasy. The Lady says,

 

“The bishops should work. They have to give the order to their priests to work especially among the youth, against humanism––modern paganism.”

 

I see many crosses standing before me. The Lady shows me how those crosses are being taken to various places. Now in Berlin I see a large square, where the Reichstag-building is. The Lady seems to plant a large Cross there, saying to me,

 

“People have to be brought there. The youth have to be kept away from modern paganism. They should work hard on this.”

 

Rome

Then I see Rome again before me. The Lady moves her finger in warning over Rome and says,

 

“Oh, oh, why not start from there? It has to be completely rebuilt.”

 

It is as though her hands are going around the Vatican, digging underneath and turning everything upside down.

 

The Netherlands

Then I see the Netherlands lying before me. The Lady says,

 

“The Netherlands are approaching the downward slope, too.”

 

I see the Dutch youth, young people and children, on a downward slope. The Lady says,

 

“They are on a downward slope.”

 

The chasm

Then it is as if the Lady takes me along somewhere. In front of me I see two very high mountains. In between there is a very deep and dark chasm or abyss. It seems as though I were suddenly placed on one of those mountains. The Lady says,

 

“Look ...”

 

And I see an abyss in the middle of the world. All at once it seems that the two mountains are brought together by the Lady, and she says,

 

“This chasm has to be closed.”

 

Changing the laws

Next I see St. Peter’s. The Lady says,

 

“Child, there you see the Pope in full pontificals, holding up two fingers. Listen carefully. The doctrine is right, but the Pope is entitled to change the laws. He should see it through.”

 

All the while I see the Pope sitting before me, holding up two fingers. Next I see a large session hall, in which the Pope is seated.

 

“Child,”

 

says the Lady,

 

“the laws may be changed. They may, they must be changed. The social classes must come closer to each other. Those in Rome should see it through and set the example for the entire world. Consider and speak––and again I say to you: love is the first commandment, and next to it, as if joined to it by an arch, truth and righteousness.”

 

The doctrine of Christ

“Child,”

 

says the Lady again,

 

“look.”

 

And I see a ‘50’ between the Lady and the Pope. The Lady says,

 

“In that year hard work will have to be done and ... not only with words. The doctrine of Christ is right. Why is it not lived correctly and in all its refinement?”

 

Now I see around me little dots and in the middle a big, red one. The Lady presses her hand heavily upon the red dot, saying,

 

“That is the main issue. It is not lived correctly. There needs to be a complete change. If they do not take these warnings to heart, they will perish and end up there.”

 

And I again see those mountains with the abyss.

 

Once more I see the Pope, and the Lady says,

 

“He has but to command and it will happen.”

 

Then I see Italy and unfamiliar clergy of high rank. I see the Pope seated with cardinals and bishops around him, in a large session hall of the Vatican. The Lady tells me he is issuing a decree. Then I see bridging between the upper and lower classes.

 

“This is what it has to come to”,

 

the Lady says.

 

“Keep in mind love and righteousness. Let all who believe work together for the good.”

 

It will come true through the years

Then I ask, “But are you really the Lady?”[1]She looks at me smiling and says,

 

“Your spiritual director should believe you; he has sufficient evidence. Tell him the following: he has good intentions and has love in his heart––for his work, too; and for the rest ...”

 

The Lady then makes a friendly gesture with her head and hands, like a good mother, adding,

 

“And for the rest he need not worry. This is simply the way his life has been guided. The evidence has been given to you. I cannot say more, as of yet. It will come true through the years. Tell him this.”

 

These last words upset me very much, and I think, “Through the years? Then how long will it take?”

 

And then the Lady goes away.

 

[1] The visionary was instructed by her director, Fr. Frehe, to ask the apparition whether or not she is Mary and what she means by ‘the Lady’. In the original Dutch version of the messages, Mary calls herself ‘de Vrouwe’, which means both ‘the Lady’ and ‘the Woman’. This biblical term, which appears in Genesis, twice in John (at Cana and Calvary) and in Revelation, is traditionally understood to refer to Mary. Throughout these messages ‘de Vrouwe’ is always translated as ‘the Lady’.

December 16, 1949

 

Poor Germany

I hear the Lady say, as she moves her finger to and fro in warning with a stern look on her face,

 

“Poor, poor Germany! Pick up the crosses and plant them in the center. Rouse the priests. Start from below. The lower classes have to be brought back to Him. Realize that this is the way it works!”

 

And the Lady clenches her fist and shows it to me, very forcefully, even swinging her arm and fist towards me.

 

Heavy clouds over St. Peter’s

Then I see St. Peter’s. The Lady stretches her hand over it and says,

 

“That shall and must be protected. The other spirit is penetrating so dreadfully.”

 

Then before my eyes I see a great mingling of white and red clouds. It is as though they moved quickly alongside and through one another. Beneath the clouds I see silhouettes of all kinds of domes and spires jumbled together. The Lady points this image out to me, and then it is as if she separates the clouds from one another with her hands. I now see a deep blue area before me, and in the center of that blue area is a bright light. It is just like a very bright star, sparkling before my eyes. The Lady taps that light with her forefinger, very gently, and yet so powerfully that I can hear the impacts as though she were tapping it with a hammer. Then she says,

 

“That is where they have to go.”

 

Then below I see heavy clouds hanging, very black ones, and I see the dome of St. Peter’s. I hear that voice say,

 

“There will be a fight there; it will be fierce; it will break out. We still have a long way to go.”

 

Working through deeds

After that I see the Pope sitting before me. The Lady looks seriously, turns her head to the side and says,

 

“The faithful have to be encouraged. Not merely encouraged, but they also have to work in the true Christian spirit. You think that all that is good, but it has to be worked through deeds. I am being clear enough. Insist even more on social rights, righteousness and love of neighbor, but ... act, not with words, but with deeds. Deeds can bring them to the light that I showed you.”

 

Then I see Europe before me. The Lady says,

 

“Europe, be warned! Unite in the good. This is not merely an economic struggle; it is about corruption of the spirit: politico-Christian struggle. It has to come from the top down. They have to set an example, but, unfortunately, the clergy, too. They have to come down to the least of my children.”

 

Love of Neighbor, Righteousness

Then, above the Pope and St. Peter’s, I see ‘Love of Neighbor, Righteousness’ written in large letters. The Lady says,

 

“This is the great fault of this time. Unless these are lived up to, things will steadily grow worse, and the world will sink lower and lower. Everyone must make it one’s own concern to live up to these.”

 

Then it is as if the Lady would put a Cross in my hand, and she says, while pointing at herself,

 

“Not me, but the Cross!”

 

Period of a fight and disasters

Next she makes me read a sign on which is written ‘50 - 51 - 53’, and she says,

 

“During this period there will be a fight and disasters.”

 

Then she holds one hand protectively over that dome, and the other before her eyes. I get a terrible, burning pain in my hand. “I cannot bear it”, I say. Then the Lady says with emphasis,

 

“That spirit will continually try to penetrate in all kind of forms––slowly, insidiously. It will penetrate so cunningly that the peoples will not recognize it. Again I warn you to pass this on.”

 

Lombardi

Then I see Italy. I see there an ordinary, simple man––a priest. It is as if he is standing in the midst of a large crowd, preaching. The Lady smiles and points at him. As I look there, she says,

 

“That Lombardi[1]is doing a good job. He works along lines such as We desire.”

 

After this I see two rows of different churches before me. Then it is as if the Lady walks towards the front row and lightly passes her hand over that row. I see these churches fall en masse and disappear.

 

The center

Then the Lady says,

 

“Child,”

 

and she draws a sort of diamond shape before me,

 

“child, that is the center.”

 

Now I see a dome and around it a wall in the shape she just drew. Suddenly I see that it is the dome of St. Peter’s. A narrow creek is running round it, marked off by a thin, black line. The Lady points at it and she says again,

 

“That is the center.”

 

Then she moves her finger to and fro very slowly and insistently, and she says,

 

“Let that remain the center! The spirits of the world are at work to destroy that center. I will help you.”

 

Now I notice that the Lady is again holding her hand above the Pope and St. Peter’s.

 

Then on my left I suddenly see a big, black claw with long, sharp nails. It is as if that claw is digging through everything in St. Peter’s. What pain is gripping me. Everything turns pink and red before my eyes. Then that claw begins to hover above everything, and at that moment I see a black eagle in flight. It is flying to the left with great flaps of its wings.

 

Germany and Italy

I see Germany lying on my right. Then I hear the Lady say,

 

“Germany, be warned!”

 

I see a triangle drawn over Germany. The Lady says,

 

“The spirit of the triangle is trying to penetrate in a different form. The people are good, but they are being pulled hither and thither and can find no way out. Poor Germany! They will fall and already have fallen victim to that other great one.”

 

Then I suddenly see a German bishop before me in full pontificals. He is an older man, a strong figure. On my right a layman appears, likewise a strong, manly figure. I hear,

 

“The bishop in his domain, and then someone enters the other domain. But that is for later on. Germany will try to work her way out; so will Italy.”

 

Then I again see that simple priest, surrounded by people. The Lady says,

 

“He is trying to bring the truth among the people.”

 

Then she tells me,

 

“You shall spread this. Do tell them.”

 

And all of a sudden the Lady is gone.

 

[1] In 1948 Fr. Riccardo Lombardi, S.J., began his ‚Crusade of Goodness’. In simple words and with untiring energy he preached the Gospel for many years, always placing God’s love in the center. He not only stressed the need for personal conversion, but also the necessity of realizing Christian ideals within the world community. This made a deep impression on many people and touched many hearts

Youth

I see the Lady standing before me. She says to me,

 

“My child, I have come here to tell you what my message is. They have to work, but very hard.”

 

Then the Lady gestures with her hands as though beckoning several people. Afterwards I see many young people, young men and women. Suddenly that image disappears, and now I see the Lady again. She seems to beckon those young people to come and stand before her. She says,

 

“I do not yet see them––the armies of young men and women. Why is it not set on foot, and why is it being neglected?”

 

And it is as if she looks around to see where they are. Then she says,

 

“I have come here to draw attention to this. This is meant for Germany too.”

 

The simple Cross

Then the Lady continues,

 

“There is a strong tendency in the world towards the good, and this is exactly why the other spirit is at work. That spirit is busy influencing and corrupting the world. People are not bad in themselves, but weak.”

 

Then the Lady again holds a Cross in her hand. She puts it on a kind of platform, saying,

 

“Do you see that Cross? Humanity needs to be brought back to this. I urgently ask them not to forget that simple Cross in this modern world with its modern technology.”

 

Modern means

After this I see the Pope before me and around him the whole Vatican. It is as if the Lady suddenly were standing above it all. Then I see big drops falling on the Vatican, drops coming from the Lady’s direction. She says in warning,

 

“This Church still has its chance, but I will not say more about it. I already spoke about the modern world. Why does Rome not seek for more modern means, and why do they not work more in the modern spirit? They should take advantage of these means to win over the world’s spirit. There are others to care for the body. The Church has to work on forming the spirit. Right now they have such a great opportunity, for humanity is searching. It is no longer a fight against nations, but against the spirit.”

 

America and Russia - Japan - The Indies

Then the Lady continues,

 

“A great conflict will arise there––America and Russia; that is approaching.”

 

I feel an excruciating pain in my hands. Then the Lady says,

 

“Japan will convert.”

 

I do not know what this should mean. Then I sense a terrible pain coming over the Indies. The Lady lets me feel this in my hand.

 

Still a chance

Then the Lady says,

 

“If Rome were willing to work hard, then more support would come forth from all sides.”

 

And then I see the Vatican. The Lady is again standing, so to speak, above it, and gestures with her hands as if she were placing several churches around the Vatican. Then the Lady says, as if speaking to herself,

 

“The chance is still there.”

 

Then she adds,

 

“This Pope has to realize what a great task he must carry out in this time.”

 

Germany

Now she lets me see Germany and says,

 

“Ask the Pope to send directives. Germany in particular is in such need of the good spirit. These can bring that spirit.”

 

I see an archbishop in Germany, a strong figure.

 

“He will put up a fight”,

 

I hear the Lady say. Then, with two fingers––the index finger and the middle finger wide apart––she makes a zigzagged line right over Germany, and says,

 

“Work on the young people in Germany, all of you who have been appointed for that. I am not telling you this for nothing.”

 

And then the Lady goes away

Taking time for the spiritual

I see the Lady standing before me, and while looking at her hands she says to me,

 

“Child, I still see empty hands. I ask you to pass on that I truly and firmly intend to form––among that core group of people––a group of those who desire the good and who do what is good. Listen carefully. Much time is taken for material things. They should take time for the spiritual, too. It is so urgently necessary. I would like this group of people to become aware of this. I tell you once again: those Catholics have to work hard; a great danger is threatening. Italy will seem to duel.”

 

Now the Lady shows me St. Peter’s again, and says,

 

“In the same way, they are working in other directions, too, to form something mighty.”

 

Germany

“In Germany they have to work hard. Fortunately one thing or another has again been initiated there for working among the faithful again even more and better. But that is not enough by any means. Germany, above all, has to be very alert. A two-faced game is being played with her, with Germany.”

 

Youth

Now I see a very large group of young people standing around the Lady. She looks at them and points at them, saying,

 

“Child, they really should start”

 

––and she points again at the group around her––

 

“bringing young people back to the right religious attitude. It is difficult and hard for those who have this at heart. I cannot, however, insist upon it enough. It is high time to begin.”

 

The first and greatest commandment

Now the Lady makes a kind of curve with her hand and says,

 

“This is for later on.”

 

I do not know what this should mean. Then the Lady says,

 

“You will see that only after much misery and many disasters will the Cross again be raised up. Everyone shall do one’s part, according to one’s ability. And I again point out the first and greatest commandment: Love, Love of Neighbor.”

 

And now all of a sudden the Lady is gone.

Feast of the Assumption of Mary

 

 

The East

I see a figure from the East standing before me, dressed in a long garment and wearing a cloth around his head. He bows three times, with his arms folded and the palms of his hands turned downward. After that his arms are moved apart and then he makes the same bow, but with his palms turned upward.

 

Then I see all kinds of strange signs, such as little curves, dashes, dots and a kind of letter like our ‘J’, then again various separate signs. It seems to me a kind of language. Next I see a wall; the wall winds downward; it seems to come down a mountain. All of this causes me excruciating pain.

 

Formosa

Suddenly I see a beast before me––a symbolic beast––which is unfamiliar to us. After that I see crabs and big starfish. Next I see an island before me. I am given to understand: that is Formosa. A smaller island lies further down. Then I have to push something up from the left and make a swooping action over the island. And I hear the words,

 

“America, take warning here!”

 

I feel that something is to happen on that island.

 

Politico-Christian struggle

After this I have to fold my hands, and I look upward to the left. I see the Lady and hear her say,

 

“This is the era of politico-Christian struggle. I have already said this several times. Great events are now coming to a climax. The chaos I spoke of has set in. The disasters have come, governments have resigned, and others will follow. Note well, child, the struggle is beginning now. I am showing you these four fingers and making a circle around them.

 

A prince will reign, very briefly and powerfully. You will not see it in your limited circle.”

 

A new spirit

Then the Lady says,

 

“Look.”

 

While standing beside her, I suddenly see beasts placing themselves before her.

 

“Look”,

 

the Lady says again, and now I see a wolf standing before her on the left. Then a wolf or a dog, holding a torch in its mouth, comes and stands directly in front of her.

 

A lioness appears beside it, and on the extreme right a large eagle appears before her.

 

“Look”,

 

the Lady says again. Now she points upward and I see a white dove. The Lady says,

 

“This is a new spirit that is to come.”

 

Then I see rays coming forth from the dove; they go downward: two rays in the middle, two rays to the right, and two rays to the left. The Lady says,

 

“You will understand what this means later.”

 

After that I again see the Lady with those beasts and the dove. Now many stars appear all around them.

 

East and West

After that it is as if the Lady takes a step down, and she says,

 

“Come.”

 

Now it is as if we come to a large plateau, and we stop in the middle. Then the Lady says,

 

“Do you see this?”

 

She points from east to west. Then she stretches out her arms very wide, and it is as if she places two walls on the plateau, facing each other. She extends those walls over a long distance. Suddenly the Lady stands, so to speak, above this, and she says to me,

 

“That is nothing.”

 

And she points to the East and the West. Then she stretches out her arms and makes a fist, first with her right hand, then with her left. Then she says,

 

“Listen carefully to how many times I strike. You shall also do this.”

 

Together with her I make fists, and the Lady counts as we forcefully strike our fists against each other.

 

“Three times altogether”,

 

says the Lady.

 

“Half of this is the East.”

 

Then I see the Balkans and Greece with a large chain around them, and around East Germany, too. It is as if the Lady ties all those countries together with that chain. I see a part still free. In the background I see a figure sitting, leaning his head on his hand. The voice tells me,

 

“The people who plan and bring about the destruction of the world.”

 

The victory is Ours

After that I am shown an Eastern scene.

 

We climb the mountain once more, and again there is a plateau at the top. We stop there. The Lady points at something lying on the ground.

 

“Come”,

 

she says, and she points at the ground. I see a heavy beam lying there which I have to push away from me. Then suddenly I see a cross-beam appearing on it, and together they form a Cross.

 

Then I look again at the Lady and say, “What am I to call you?”––my spiritual director had ordered me to ask this again. She smiles and gestures as if to say: are they asking that again? And she answers me,

 

“Just tell them: The Lady.”

 

And the Lady continues as usual. She points at the beam that has been pushed away and says,

 

“Christendom”,

 

and now she gestures with her hands and fingers, as if everything were flying apart and whirling around. It symbolizes Christendom. The Lady says,

 

“You shall say this: Christendom, you do not know the great danger threatening you. There is a spirit out to undermine you. But ...”

 

––and the Lady makes a sign of blessing with her hand––

 

“victory is Ours.”

 

England

The Lady continues,

 

“I am taking you along to show you something.”

 

Now I see England lying before me. Then it is as if the Lady places her foot on England. Moving her finger to and fro in warning, she says,

 

“Why so rigid about everything? Can you not turn towards what is normal?”

 

Then it is as if she places a very big crown on England, and she says,

 

“This will also be tampered with.”

 

Next it is as if the Lady makes little holes in the crown all around, through which she puts ribbons. Now it is as if she fastens all those ribbons to England. Now she again takes her foot away from England and says,

 

“No, England, these are not your correct politics.”

 

I suddenly see the King of England before me. It is just as if he turns around very quickly. Above England then, to the side, I see Churchill, too, but only his head.

 

Then the Lady points someone out to me, and all at once I see a bishop standing there, but not of our Church. I am given to understand: that is the bishop of Canterbury. The Lady looks at him, and she moves her finger to and fro in warning. Then I see a great number of spires appearing in the background. While pointing at them the Lady says,

 

“There will be changes there.”

 

But I get the feeling that it is for later on.

 

Then I see the Pope on our left, with two fingers raised. On the other side, facing him, is the bishop of Canterbury. Beside him, then, yet another clergyman suddenly appears. The latter is wearing a white wig with stiff curls or waves, and he is dressed in a long gown with white bands.[1] Above those heads, then, I see the Lady. She says,

 

“Look.”

 

From the side of the English clergy she moves her finger over the heads of the English clergymen and then places it between the two outspread fingers of the Pope.

 

Korea

This scene disappears, and then I see written: ‘51 - 53’. The Lady lets me see this, and suddenly I receive something in my hand. It is as if I have to snatch it from the sky. It comes from very high up. I hear that voice say,

 

“Meteors––pay attention to them!”

 

Then the Lady says,

 

“Come”,

 

and we go on. The Lady says,

 

“The fighting in Korea is a sham and the start of great misery.”

 

Then I see demarcations being made at intervals. Next I see someone sitting, leaning his head on his hand; this person is in deep thought. I am given to understand that it is a Russian head of state. I make him out to be Stalin or Lenin.

 

“I have warned you against that danger”,

 

I suddenly hear at my side.

 

Then I see half of the globe, and I have to look it over. While holding its left edge, so to speak, with my hand, I have to say, “Now I am looking very far and holding it.” Then I have to descend along the sphere at an angle to the right and trace a straight line further on. This causes me terrible anxiety.

 

Encyclicals

“Let’s go on”,

 

says the Lady. Now I see the upper part of Italy and have to wrap my hand around it. Then I see southern Italy, and hold the ‚heel’ of Italy, so to speak, tightly with my thumb, as I place my other four fingers on southern Italy. I have to do this. Then I hear the Lady say,

 

“No, over there things are not at all in order. Where are the encyclicals?”

 

I then have to make a movement and cross my raised hands over one another. I continuously see empty hands.

 

Then I see St. Peter’s and hear the Lady say,

 

“Do you know your power at all? Do you know your doctrine?”

 

Now she writes ‘Encyclicals’ and says,

 

“This is good, and do implement it. Let it stream forth to the right and left, upward and downward. Do you realize”

 

––and she makes a fist––

 

“that this power has such power?”

 

Then she lets me see a ‘1’, a ‘2’ and a ‘3’. After this I see a book lying before me. A hand is laid upon it. The Lady says,

 

“Look at your laws.”

 

And it is as if she would stretch something. The more she does so, the wider and larger it gets. While doing this the Lady says,

 

“Know well that your time is here.”

 

Chaos

After this she takes me upon a slope and says,

 

“Urbi et Orbi.”[2]

 

Then from that slope the Lady looks at St. Peter’s with me, and she says,

 

“Why so rigid? Make more room!”

 

Now she takes me into a room and says,

 

“This is what it has to come to.”

 

Then I see a sort of oppression and hear,

 

“From out of all this chaos, a fight will first arise, and only later will there be an upswing.”

 

Now suddenly great sadness is upon me. As the Lady goes away, she says,

 

“I shall come again to bring you messages.”

 

[1] The visionary recognized this image when she saw on television the historic meeting between Pope Paul VI and Dr. Ramsey, the Archbishop of Canterbury. This took place in 1966 in the Sistine Chapel, Rome.

24th MESSAGE[1]

 

November 16, 1950

 

The Lady upon the globe - The Lady of All Nations

I see the Lady standing upon the globe. She points at the globe and says to me,

 

“Child, I am standing upon this globe, because I want to be called the Lady of All Nations.”

 

The words ‘of All Nations’ appear above her head in a semicircle.

 

Placing her feet on England and Germany

The Lady continues,

 

“I have told you: mission in one’s own country. And now I want to let you see something.”

 

Then the Lady points again at the globe, and after that she is standing on Germany with her feet close together. Then the Lady makes a movement as if she steps upon England with one foot, and she says,

 

“I have already placed one foot there firmly.”

 

Then she places that foot back on Germany and puts both feet together again firmly. She stands again with her hands spread apart and looks down at Germany very dejectedly. Then the Lady says,

 

“Child, I put both my feet on it. Germany must be saved. The Son brought you precisely here so that you may better understand this.[2]

 

I have restored many sick people to health.”

 

She lets me see a map and points out a certain place. I see Lourdes very clearly. Next she points out other places, too. Which places they are, though, I don’t know. The Lady says,

 

“Now do you understand what I want here? There are so many sick souls here; they have to be saved. Why are so many priests here going from Germany to the foreign missions? They should stay here. There is so much work to be done.”

 

Call to action in Germany

Then the Lady points and I see the Vatican, as she says,

 

“The Pope should send the means and summon the priests; otherwise Germany will perish. There is a great, immense apostasy there. People do not want to give offerings for new churches and buildings. The priests must be spurred on towards this. It is a hard job. I am only warning. The others are very busy drawing the German people away from Rome.”

 

After this I suddenly see a skull before me and in front of it two bones crossed over one another. The Lady takes the skull and the bones and lays them at her feet upon Germany. Then she says,

 

“The Son wants to give His special protection and has sent me to help Germany. But they have to be spurred-on to do what I say.”

 

Starting from the bottom up

Then I see many little children gathering around her, looking up at her in rapture. The Lady points at those children, and then I see men and women standing on my left at a great distance from the Lady and the children. The Lady brings her hands together and says,

 

“Germany must start to regain its unity. Let everyone start for oneself in one’s own house. Children again have to be one with father and mother. They should kneel together again and pray the Rosary.”

 

Then it is as if the Lady would scatter the children, and she says,

 

“It has to start from the bottom up, and then go out into the world. Then love of neighbor has to be practiced again very much. A great action has to be set afoot among Catholics. This can be done by propagation, by preaching about it more in the churches. On the whole, to have more action.”

 

Meanwhile it is as if the Lady were pushing people forward.

 

“It is of great importance that this be carried through. There are others working to destroy Germany. The people are ready now. Tell them; do tell them!”

 

Then the Lady makes a gesture of warning with her finger,

 

“They should work hard.”

 

A great chance for Rome

After that I see the Pope before me once again. The Lady says,

 

“The Pope will comply if it is asked of him.”

 

Then the Lady crosses her arms and extends them over Germany. After that she steps away from Germany, and I see the globe rotating under her feet. Then I see her standing on the globe again, and she points out Rome to me. She now moves her finger to and fro in warning and says,

 

“The Pope should always continue in this way! There is a great chance for Rome now.”

 

I see various churches before me. With one movement of the hand the Lady throws these churches, so to speak, to the ground. Then I see the great dome of the Vatican in the background. The Lady says,

 

“The great chance has now come, provided that the Pope carries through what he is planning to do.”

 

The Lady holds her hand in protection over the Pope.

 

Disturbance over the world

Then she says,

 

“A great disturbance is coming upon the world. The Russians are not leaving things as they are. And for that reason I say: I am the Lady of All Nations.”

 

Saying so, she strongly emphasizes the word ‘all’.

 

[1] On November 1, 1950, Pope Pius XII proclaimed the dogma of the Assumption of Mary into Heaven. This event constitutes a noteworthy point within the messages, for from here they take on a new direction. In this, the first message to follow the proclamation of the dogma, Mary calls herself ‘The Lady of All Nations’ for the first time. In the succeeding messages she dictates her prayer, draws attention to her image, and speaks for the first time about the final and greatest Marian dogma: Mary Coredemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate.

[2]The visionary received this message in Germany.


25th MESSAGE

 

December 10, 1950

 

The Cross laid upon the world

To my left I see a light appearing. I have to fold my hands. Then suddenly I see the Lady, standing upon the globe again. After that it is as if the Lady takes me along, and now I see her spreading out the globe before me like a flat map. Then she places something on the map, and a terrible pain comes over me. I then see that the Lady has laid a very large, heavy Cross upon that map. While looking at it, I feel terrible pain in my hands and head. It is as if all the muscles in my body are contracting. The Lady says,

 

“This is the beam that is being laid upon the world”,

 

and she points at the long beam. Then the Lady points at the cross-beam and then again at the whole Cross, saying,

 

“I am letting you feel the pains of that beam.”

 

After this a feverish sensation comes into my head, and it is as if I have a violent thirst, so terrible that I can hardly bear it. Then the Lady makes me lift my right hand, with two fingers and my thumb raised. I have to make my left hand into a fist. The Lady says,

 

“The right hand is Truth and the other is the fist. You have to hold them up so that everyone can see them.”

 

While doing so, I suddenly see all kinds of people from all nations appear behind the globe with the Cross. Then I have to hold my fist in front of my eyes. At that such terrible pain seizes me that I double over and begin to cry. Again it is as if all the muscles of my body were contracting. “That fist hurts so much”, I tell the Lady. Then the pains slowly disappear. I fold my hands again.

 

Fight in the East

The Lady says,

 

“Come. Let’s stop in the midst of it. I want to place my feet in the midst of the world, and I will let you see something: … That is America.”

 

Then she suddenly points to another part and says,

 

“Manchuria; a terrible uprising will happen there.”

 

After this I see Chinese people, and then I see a line which they are crossing.

 

Then I have to move my hand up and down over Formosa and Korea. I hear the Lady say,

 

“Child, I told you: this is a sham. By this I meant that there will be periods of apparent tranquility. But this will not last long. The Eastern peoples have been roused by a type of humanity which does not believe in the Son.”

 

We continue again. Now I see Great China lying before me, and I have to fold my arms in a peculiar manner. I see a great man––I mean a man of spiritual greatness––sitting on a throne. The Lady says,

 

“He is grieved. His empire will be divided up for the time being.”

 

Then the Lady points out America and moves a disapproving finger to and fro, as she says with a grave look,

 

“Do not push your politics too far.”

 

After that she lets me stroke the Cross twice with my hand. The Cross weighs heavily over America, too.

 

Next I see Asia. Then I see the Lady extend her hands over a certain part of it––it seems to me to be the Ukraine––as if to protect it.

 

Then upward to the left, in Russia, I see a glaring light, a blinding light. It is as if it explodes from the ground upward. It is a horrible sight.

 

“And then you no longer see anything”,

 

says the Lady, and I am blinded by that light. I feel something very disgusting coming over me. Then I see a scorched plain. It is a ghastly sight, just as if death had gone over it.

 

Next I see people in front of me with cloths around their heads and wide cloaks draped about them. They are holding their cloaks shut with their hands crossed in front of them. The Lady points at those people and says,

 

“A fight for holy ground will happen again there, too. They will have a conflict over our land.”

 

The Lady is speaking so softly that I do not know whether she says ‘fight’ or ‘conflict’.

 

“Japan, too, has to be on her guard. I am telling you all of this, and you will witness it. For I am the Lady of All Nations, and you shall say this.”

 

The Lady’s earlier apparitions

Then I see the Lady again, standing before me in her usual position with her arms spread out. I ask her, “Will they believe me?” I ask this because of all the difficulties I have had. The Lady answers,

 

“Yes, that is why I came to you before––when you did not understand. It was not necessary then; it was the proof for now.”[1]

 

The secular and regular clergy

Now I have to form a fist again with one hand and raise the fingers of the other hand. The Lady then says,

 

“Those two hands will fight against one another, but after much fighting and pain the hand with the fist will fall, because Truth will always triumph. But alas, a lot still has to be changed there. Say that the Church is now on the right path.”

 

Now the Lady pauses, and then she says,

 

“The seculars and regulars.”[2]

 

Then it is as if she bangs her fist on the table. I hear a loud bang and see her shaking her head in an emphatic ‘no’. Then she says,

 

“Among the secular clergy there is still so much indifference which can be put aside. They shall mind their task well in this time.”

 

At first I dare not repeat this, but then the Lady looks at me very severely. Thus I cannot help but repeat it.

 

Men and women

Then it is as if the Lady forms two rows of people. Now I see men standing to her right and women to her left. Then she points at the row of women with a compassionate look on her face. She shakes her head in pity and says, as though addressing those women,

 

“Do you still know your task? Listen carefully: as a woman is, so is the man. You women, set the example. Return to your womanliness.”

 

Then she looks at the row of men and says,

 

“I have one question for you, men: where are the soldiers for Christ? That is all I have to say to you.”

 

The white dove

Then it is as if the Lady unites those two rows of people. She brings them together with an arch. Now I see endless rows of men and women next to one another. Then all of a sudden that arch forms a large dome, and above that dome it forms into a large church. Inside that church I see the following image appear: a white dove emitting rays of light. The Lady says,

 

“Oh, let those come upon the people of the earth. I will help them, but they will have to work hard and quickly.”

 

The Pope will be helped

Then all of a sudden I see the Pope again, but I only see his bust. He is, so to speak, above it all. He is wearing a peculiar crown all set with precious stones. While looking at it, I hear the Lady say,

 

“A tiara.”

 

Then it is as if the Lady addresses the Pope, and she says,

 

“You are heading in the right direction. I will help you. Use your modern means even more and press on. Rome’s chance has come. Make use of it! You will have to weather very severe storms, but you will be helped.”

 

Then I see enormous storms, and a flood of water.

 

Then all of a sudden I see a crown in the Lady’s right hand, and it is as though she were handing it over to the Pope.

 

France

Next the Lady says to me,

 

“Now we move on. France is in a dreadful plight.”

 

I see France before me, and the statue of Napoleon on it in the center. I hear,

 

“France, militarily, economically and spiritually you have sunk very deeply. Where are your glory and your pride?”

 

Then I see many red spots upon France. I hear that voice say,

 

“And yet so very little is necessary to make these people see the error of their ways.”

 

Then the Lady points at various countries and says,

 

“Why don’t they join together?”

 

Now I see the Netherlands, France, Belgium and England.

 

The iron curtain

The Lady points at a thick line in Germany, and she says,

 

“Europe is divided in two.”

 

I remove that line with one sweep of the hand. Now I see a very black area, except for the coastal countries, which I see very clearly. Then we arrive above a river. The Lady says,

 

“The Oder.”

 

I see no water flowing, but a red flood.

 

“And it is red with blood”,

 

says the Lady. I see red streams flowing westward.

 

Turkey

Then I hear,

 

“Turkey, are you on your guard?”

 

Then I see the Bosporus and the Dardanelles. I have to do something strange. I have to make my hands into claws and place them firmly on the map. My arms I have to hold like the paws of a beast. The Lady says,

 

“You only represent that. You are as a beast standing with two paws upon Europe, ready to pounce.”

 

Then I actually see a beast, ready to pounce on Europe. It looks to the left and to the right, but then very slowly it draws back its paws.

 

The shepherd and his flock

Then I hear that voice say,

 

“Then, after fear and sorrow, you will see the following.”

 

And then all of a sudden I see a peaceful landscape before me, with lambs and sheep at pasture and a shepherd in their midst. The Lady says,

 

“Understand all this well and pass it on.”

 

Then all of a sudden the Lady is gone.

 

[1] As a twelve-year-old girl, the visionary saw “a beautiful, dazzling Lady, dressed in white” on three consecutive Saturdays of October, 1917. The first of these Saturdays, October 13, 1917, coincided with the day on which the ‘Miracle of the Sun’ took place in Fatima.

[2] Secular priests are those who work under a diocesan bishop, and regular priests are those belonging to a religious community.


 

26th MESSAGE

 

January 25, 1951

 

A dream

This message was actually a dream.[1]I had really fallen asleep and was dreaming. Yet I was half awake at the moment I received this message. When it was finished, I woke up completely. I then got up and wrote down the message myself:

 

In the night, between January 24 and 25, 1951, I dreamed that I was standing somewhere far away in a peculiar hall or room. All at once the Lady was standing opposite me. She was wearing a wide cloak draped about her; the shawl she usually wore over her head was wrapped about her neck, and she was wearing sandals on her bare feet. She said to me,

 

“Look carefully and listen.”

 

The Last Supper

Then I saw a long table before me and behind it a kind of couch, upon which several men sat down, half reclining. In the middle I saw a luminous figure with bread and a chalice of wine before him. The Lady stood behind it all and told me once more,

 

“Look carefully and listen.”

 

Fasting before approaching the Lord’s Table

And the hall suddenly became a large church full of people, in the middle of which the Lady and I stood watching. Next I heard the Lady’s voice, saying:

 

“A decree shall and must be issued to the effect that people no longer have to fast before going to communion. There are so many people who, especially when they are in church, may feel a strong desire to go to the Lord’s Table, but are kept from doing so because they have not fasted.”

 

Then the Lady pointed at those men and said,

 

“These men also went straight from the street to the table.”

 

And all of a sudden I saw that room again for an instant.

 

A new decree

“Look,”

 

the Lady said,

 

“at first, few people are going to the communion rails …”

 

And then I suddenly heard a voice as if coming from outside and issuing that decree.[2] And then I saw people streaming to the communion rails.

 

“It must and shall be like this”,

 

the Lady said.

 

“Do you see the difference now?”

 

And immediately everything was gone and I woke up.

 

[1] The Lady refers to this dream in message 27.

[2] On January 6, 1953, and March 19, 1957, Pope Pius XII issued decrees in which the instructions on fasting before going to communion were considerably mitigated. Pope John XXIII mitigated them even further.


27th MESSAGE[1]

 

February 11, 1951

 

Our Lady of Lourdes

 

The Lady, Mary, Mother of All Nations

I see a bright light and then I see the Lady standing before me. 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 come on this very day to tell you that this is who I wish to be. The people of all countries shall truly be one.”

 

Then, without saying anything, the Lady remains standing in her usual posture and is looking at me continuously. Then she says,

 

“The entire world is undergoing upheaval, but the worst thing is that the people of this world are being brought into upheaval.”

 

Then it is as if the Lady is walking along the globe and I see that the whole world is in confusion and entering into upheaval.

 

The Second Vatican Council

“I am bringing you here”,says the Lady, and suddenly I am with her above Italy. I see the Vatican and then I enter St. Peter’s together with the Lady. We walk through the central passage and halt near the middle of St. Peter’s. On either side I see scaffolding, benches mounting up in tiers. Upon those benches I see many cardinals and bishops wearing white miters.[2] The Lady says,

 

“Watch closely; these are the bishops of all countries.”

 

Now I see the Pope seated, wearing the tiara. He is sitting at the far end of the central passage. I see some clergy standing about him. In one hand he is holding a scepter, and from the other he is raising two fingers in the well-known position. He has a large, thick book before of him. The Lady says,

 

“Listen carefully, child. Changes have already been made, and others are in progress. I, however, want to bring the Son’s message. The doctrine is right, but the laws can and must be changed. I want to tell you this on this very day, for the world is undergoing great upheaval––nobody knows in which direction. That is why the Son wants me to bring this message.”

 

The pains of the Cross

And now suddenly I am standing before a large Cross. While looking at it, I am seized with terrible pains. I get muscle cramps from head to foot. It is as if all the muscles in both of my arms are contracting, causing me to clench my fingers. It is as if my head is split asunder, and I get a feverish feeling as if my head would burst. All this together causes me to weep. I can bear it no longer and ask the Lady whether it might pass. Then she smiles. It lasts for another moment and then everything is gone. Then the Lady says to me,

 

“Let everyone come back to the Cross; only then can there be peace and tranquility.”

 

The prayer is given

While I am still standing with the Lady before the Cross, she says,

 

“Repeat after me.”

 

To me this is a little bit strange. I think to myself, “But I already repeat everything she says!” But suddenly I see the Lady become even more beautiful than she already was. The light which always surrounds her becomes much brighter and brilliant, such that I can hardly bear to look into it. She now raises and joins her hands, which she otherwise always holds down. Her face becomes so heavenly, so sublime; one simply cannot express it in words. Her figure grows even more translucent and so beautiful that I look at it in rapture. Then the Lady says,

 

“Pray before 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 says this prayer so beautifully and impressively––no one in the world could do it as she did. She stresses the word ‘now’ in ‘send now Your Spirit’ and ‘all’ in ‘Let the Holy Spirit live in the hearts of all nations’. She also pronounces the word ‘Amen’ so beautifully and solemnly. While still standing in front of the Cross, I pray it, repeating the words the Lady recited to me. It is as if the words are imprinted in my mind. I now see them written in large letters.

 

The first and greatest commandment

The Lady continues,

 

“Child, this is so simple and short that everyone can say it in one’s own language, before one’s own crucifix; and those who have no crucifix say it to themselves. This is the message which I want to give this very day, for I am now coming to say that I want to save souls. All of you, cooperate in this great work for the world. If only every child of man would try to live up to this for oneself.”

 

And then the Lady raises a finger and says,

 

“Especially in the first and greatest commandment, Love.”

 

I now see this word written in large letters.

 

“Let them begin with that”,

 

the Lady says. Then I see a certain group of people; the Lady looks at them very compassionately and says,

 

“And then the little ones of this world will say: how can we begin with that? For it is the great ones who do this to us.”

 

The Lady says this very lovingly, as if she had great pity on the people around her. But then the Lady’s face changes, and she says very emphatically,

 

“And then I say to the little ones: if you practice Love among yourselves in all its refinement, even the great ones will not have a chance. Go to your crucifix and say what I recited to you, and the Son will answer it.”

 

The fight concerning the spirit

Then the Lady says to me,

 

“A great natural disaster will again take place.

 

The great ones of this world will always disagree with one another. People will seek here and there. Watch out for the false prophets. Seek and ask only for the true Holy Spirit. For it is now a war of ideas. The fight no longer concerns races and peoples; the fight concerns the spirit. Understand this well.”

 

The laws can be changed

Then the Lady folds her hands. I now see the Pope with cardinals and bishops. Then the Lady says, as if speaking to the Pope,

 

“You can save this world. I have said more than once: Rome has its chance. Seize the present moment. No church in the world is built-up like yours. But move with the times and insist upon your modern changes concerning religious, priests, seminarians, and so on and so forth. Keep an eye on that. Carry through with it to the smallest detail! The doctrine remains, but the laws can be changed. Let the people of this world benefit more from the Remembrance of my Son.”

 

Then the Lady says to me,

 

“I showed you in the dream how the practice of frequent communion can be carried through. This I tell you for the Netherlands and for all countries in which it is not so.”

 

Countries of Europe - America

“For Germany I want to say: they shall work hard, hard in this country to bring the people, who have strayed far, far away, back to this center, the Cross. Priests are too few, but lay people are many. Conduct a great campaign among the laity to call them forward for this goal. Work here above all with great love and charity. The great ones of Germany shall help and not turn away from the Church. Deutschland jedoch liegt mir sehr am Herzen. Die Mutter Gottes weint über die Kinder Deutschlands.[3]

 

For France, Belgium, the Balkans and Austria, I say the following: do not let yourselves be brought to the wrong spirit.

 

For Italy I say: great ones of Italy, do you know your task?

 

To England I say: I will come back, England.

 

To America I say: do not push your politics too far; and seek the True Spirit. I am glad that America is better disposed to the faith at the moment.”

 

Africa - Asia - We are taking care of them

“For Africa I say: say that I would like to have a seminary there. I will help the Dominicans. Tell this to your spiritual director.[4]

 

Tell him also that the Son is content with his work and guidance. Tell him that he should be more courageous in carrying through with these matters. I only want to make use of you to carry through with the will of the Son in this time. Indeed, I want to ask you, child of man, to help people as much as possible. I shall give you strength and support for this. Your spiritual director is chosen for helping you in this work only. Everything else can stay as it is. He will understand me.

 

Further, I would like to say to all Eastern and Asian peoples, whether they know the Son or not: We are taking care of them.”

 

This time is Our time

Then the Lady points at the globe again and says,

 

“This time is Our time.

 

You, child, are only the instrument for passing these things on. You shall do this. Yes, there are enough proofs––in what I said today, too. Say that I wish to be: The Lady of All Nations.”

 

[1]The visionary received this message in Germany.

[2] Later, when the visionary saw pictures of the Second Vatican Council on television (1962-1965), she recognized them to be the images described here.

[3] “My heart is greatly concerned for Germany. The Mother of God weeps for the people of Germany.” Our Lady said these two sentences in German, rather than in Dutch.

[4]Fr. Frehe, the spiritual director of the visionary, belonged to the Dominican order. Some of his fellow Dominicans had asked him to pray for a Dominican seminary in Africa.


 

28th MESSAGE

 

March 4, 1951

 

The will of the Son

I see a bright light, and then I hear,

 

“Here I am again.”

 

Through the bright light I see the Lady. She says,

 

“Look carefully and listen to what I am going to tell you.”

 

Then the Lady shakes her head at me in disapproval and says,

 

“Child, you shall pass on my message! My only intention is that the will of the Son be done in this time. Understand well: you are only the instrument.”

 

The image of the Lady

Then it is as if the Lady places herself before me very clearly, and she says,

 

“Look at my image and examine it closely.”

 

And she gestures as if wanting to say: just feel. I am actually allowed to feel the contour of her figure, but I feel that contour as something spiritual. Her hair is thick and wavy, flowing down over her shoulders. For a moment it is as if she is a human being, but at the same time not. I now see that her veil is of a kind of linen––white, but not snow-white. It is as if she has folded back the veil in order to let her face be seen. Then the Lady says,

 

“Now, imprint this clearly upon your memory. I am standing on the globe and both of my feet are set firmly upon it. You also see my hands clearly, and my face, hair, and veil. The rest is as in a haze.”

 

For a moment it is as if I see a haze around her.

 

“Look carefully at what is protruding on both sides at the height of my shoulders and above my head.”

 

With astonishment I notice that it is a Cross, and I say to the Lady, “That is a Cross; I see the crossbeams and the main beam protruding.” The Lady smiles and says,

 

“Well, did you see it clearly? I have let you see my head, hands, and feet as of a human being. Mark well, as of the Son of Man. The rest is the Spirit.”

 

The spreading of the prayer and image

“You shall have this image made and spread together with the prayer I recited. That is my wish for today, and I want this to be done in many languages. That is the answer for your spiritual director. Child, once more I insist that this be carried through. It is of great importance that you, child, do not let others deter you from it. And you yourself shall stand strong and see it through.”

 

Now I ask the Lady, “I feel so weak for that. Will they believe it?” Then the Lady answers,

 

“I am only asking you to do what I tell you. More is not expected. I only wish that this be done. You, child of man, cannot estimate what great value this can have. Tell that to your spiritual director as well. For I wish to be the Lady of All Nations in this time. And that is why I want the prayer with the image to be translated into all major languages and prayed every day. Do not be afraid.”

 

Explanation of the image

Now the Lady pauses before me for a moment, and I see her very clearly. Then she says,

 

“Now I will explain to you why I come in this way. I stand as the Lady before the Cross––with head, hands and feet as of a human being; with the body, however, as of the Spirit, because the Son came by the will of the Father. Now, however, the Spirit shall come over the world, and that is why I want this to be prayed for.”

 

Now the Lady pauses a moment before adding,

 

“I am standing on the globe because this concerns the whole world.”

 

Then it is as if the Lady draws a semicircle with her hand, and she says,

 

“Look carefully.”

 

Now I see a semicircle emerging, stretching from one end of the crossbeam to the other. It is as if that circle consists of a peculiar kind of light, and in it I see letters appear in black print: on the left, ‘de Vrouwe’, in the center, ‘van alle’, and on the right, ‘Volkeren’.[1]

 

Then the Lady says,

 

“There is a special reason why I am giving you this here. This is yet to come. Pass everything on carefully. That is my message for today. The spirit of untruth is penetrating so dreadfully that it is necessary to carry through with this quickly. The whole world is degenerating, and because of this the Son is sending the Lady of All Nations, who once was Mary.”

 

[1]The title ‘The Lady of All Nations’ appeared in Dutch over the Cross.


29th MESSAGE

 

March 28, 1951

 

Obedience to the Son

I see a bright light and then hear,

 

“Here I am again, the Lady of All Nations.”

 

Then I see the Lady before me clearly. She says,

 

“I am coming only to bring you the following message. Tell your spiritual director that everything is going well like that. But, the Son wants to be obeyed. His will must be carried out.”

 

The prayer once again

“Look carefully once more at how I look.”

 

Now it is as if the Lady is coming closer, and she again lets me see everything clearly. Then she says,

 

“This is how it has to be spread. In the text of the prayer which I recited, nothing may be changed.”

 

Again the Lady prays the prayer in the same beautiful way and with that heavenly expression:

 

“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.”

 

While the Lady says the prayer, she lets me read it in printed letters. Then I see that the word ‘now’ in the phrase ‘send now Your Spirit’ and the word ‘All’ in ‘the Lady of All Nations’ are underlined.

 

Then the Lady says,

 

“‘Who once was Mary’, that stays as it is.”

 

Era of decline

“Tell your spiritual director further that prudence is good, but the Son is sending me to you to carry out His will. Child, do not be afraid. I stand as the Lady before the Cross, and in this way I wish to be brought back into the world. And you, child, are the instrument, only the instrument.

 

Earlier I already showed you, ‘51-53’.[1] Do you know, child, what kind of an era this is? Throughout the centuries the world has not yet experienced such an era, such a decline of faith; and that is why I want this to be carried out, quickly and without fear. Tell your spiritual director that in these modern times, in this modern world, which knows so well how to act promptly and quickly in material affairs, it is equally necessary in spiritual matters to act quickly, promptly and in a modern way.”

 

Rome in danger

Then it is as if I suddenly see Rome before me. I hear the Lady say, as she moves her finger to and fro in disapproval,

 

“Do you know your laws?”

 

Then the Lady says to me again,

 

“Further, tell your spiritual director not to be afraid. He will understand me. For it is I who have chosen him and you to pass this on. Today this is my special message so that action will be taken.

 

I already told you earlier: the Cross has to be brought back into the world in these years, 51-53. You do not know what is lying hidden in the future. You do not realize the great danger facing Rome. Rome still thinks that she is standing strong, but she is not aware of how she is being undermined. Do you realize how quickly action needs to be taken? Do you realize that theology must give way to the cause of my Son?”

 

Do not be afraid

Next the Lady says,

 

“I move away from the Cross and place myself beside it.”

 

Now the Lady steps aside, and it is as if I were placed before that large Cross. Again I feel those terrible pains. This lasts a while. Then the Lady takes her place again before the Cross, and says further,

 

“You shall do what I tell you, child. I will assist you and the others. I want it to be spread in many languages. I will help them in this. Do not be so afraid. Why be afraid regarding the concerns of the Son? Spread this. Otherwise the world will fall into degeneration. Otherwise the world will destroy itself. Otherwise there will be war upon war and no end to destruction.”

 

False prophets

“Rome must know her task in this time. Does Rome realize which enemy is lying in wait and creeping like a snake throughout the world? And by this I do not mean communism alone; other prophets will come––false prophets. That is why those means should be made use of.

 

I stand as the Lady before the Cross, as the Mother before my Son, Who through the Father entered into me. And this is why I stand before my Son, as the Advocate and bearer of this message to this modern world.”

30th MESSAGE

 

April 1, 1951

 

All nations

I see a bright light and I hear a voice say,

 

“Child, last time I came only to let you know that it was I.”

 

And now all of a sudden I see the Lady emerging from that bright light. She says to me,

 

“Now I am here to give you further explanation. Watch closely and listen carefully to what I am going to say. I am standing here, and I wish to be: The Lady of All Nations––not of one nation in particular, but of all.”

 

At that the Lady extends her hands, and I see many different people, even sorts of people whom I never knew existed.

 

The final Marian dogma

The Lady continues,

 

“Now I will explain something to you again; listen carefully. Try to understand what this message means. I am standing before the Cross with my head, hands and feet as of a human being; my body as of the Spirit. Why am I like this? My body has been taken up, like the Son. Now I am standing in sacrifice before the Cross. For I suffered with my Son spiritually and, above all, bodily. This will become a much contested dogma.”

 

I say that this message makes me afraid. Then the Lady says,

 

“Child, pass it on, and say: this brings the Marian dogmas to a close.”

 

While saying this the Lady makes a kind of ring or circle, which, so to speak, she closes with a lock.

 

“You have nothing to do other than pass this on.

 

I have said: theology must give way to the concerns of my Son. By this I mean to say: theologians, the Son always looks for the little and simple for His cause. Do you believe in the little and simple, just as you tell others they should? Simple faith. We have no time for waiting around. This time is Our time.”

 

The Mother of the Son of Man

Now the Lady, without a word, remains before me for a long time, looking at me with a smile. Then she moves away from the Cross, and again those intense pains come over me. First, terrible cramps in the all the muscles of my body. Then this fades away, and spiritually I feel very strange and tired. All at once I see the Lady standing before the Cross again, and those pains stop. Now I see the Lady as in a haze. Her body is so translucent that through it I can now see, so to speak, the Cross clearly before me. Then suddenly those terrible pains begin anew. This lasts for a moment; then everything is normal again, and the Lady says to me,

 

“Child, just as He suffered, so did I suffer as the Mother of the Son of Man. Repeat this correctly.”

 

In the hearts of all nations

After this the Lady points out to me the globe on which she is standing, and it is as if it is snowing around her. The Lady smiles and says,

 

“You do not understand this? Look carefully at the globe.”

 

And now I see the globe covered with a thick layer of snow. Now the Lady smiles again and says,

 

“Now look at the globe again.”

 

And it is as if the sun were shining upon it, as if the snow were melting and slowly disappearing into the ground. Then the Lady says,

 

“You are wondering: what does this mean? Now you will receive the explanation of my coming today. Just as the snowflakes whirl over the world and fall upon the ground in a thick layer, so will the prayer and the image spread over the world and fall down into the hearts of all nations.”

 

As she says this, I see all those nations standing before me. Then the Lady points first at her own heart, and then at the hearts of all those people, and says,

 

“Just as the snow melts into the ground, so the fruit, the Spirit, will come into the hearts of all people who pray this prayer every day. For they are asking for the Holy Spirit to come over the world.”

 

Go with great ardor and zeal

“And now I am speaking to those who want a miracle. Very well then, I tell them: go with great ardor and zeal about this work of redemption and peace, and you will behold the miracle. This is my message for today, because time presses. A great action must be set on foot for the Son and the Cross, and for the Advocate and bearer of tranquility and peace, the Lady of All Nations.”

 

Simple faith

“You, child, will have to cooperate without fear or dread. Spiritually and physically you will suffer. Later they will see what my intention was. I will give you directions for the outspreading. I brought you here today in all silence and tranquility so that you may pass on my message well.

 

Say that this is urgent. The world is in such degeneration, is so materialistic, that it is high time to bring simple faith among the people again. And this is all they need: the Cross with the Son of Man. You, the older ones of this world, teach your children to return to the Cross. I will help them as the Lady of All Nations.”

 

Trust

“And you, child, into your womb I lay the people of the entire world. Look at me and trust.”

 

Then the Lady looks at me for a long time, and, as I see her slowly disappearing, she says,

 

“This time is Our time.”


31st MESSAGE

 

April 15, 1951

 

The loin-cloth

I see that great bright light again. Very slowly the Lady comes forth from that light, and then she is standing before me clearly. The Lady is not yet saying anything, but looking at me with a smile. This lasts for a while, and then she begins to speak. The Lady says,

 

“Child, look carefully once more.”

 

The Lady now points at the sash wrapped around her waist; I have to look at it carefully. The Lady says,

 

“You have described everything correctly. You are on the right path. But look carefully at this cloth once more.”

 

Now I see the Lady remove the cloth from her waist. It is a very long cloth, and she lets me see how she wraps it around herself. With her left hand she holds one end, and with her right hand she wraps that cloth twice around her waist until reaching the left side again. Then with her left hand she tucks in the end, such that a little part is left hanging down.

 

“Listen carefully to what this means”,

 

the Lady says.

 

“This is as the loin-cloth of the Son. For I stand as the Lady before the Cross of the Son.”

 

A new dogma

“This image will precede ...”

 

Here the Lady pauses for a moment and then repeats with great emphasis,

 

“will precede a dogma, a new dogma.

 

Now I will explain it to you. Listen carefully. The Son came into this world as the Redeemer of humanity, and the work of redemption was the Cross, with all its sufferings, spiritual and bodily.”

 

Then the Lady moves away from the Cross, and I stand again before that large Cross. Once again those dreadful pains seize hold of me, more violently than before. It lasts a long time for me, and then the Lady, as if surrounded by a haze, places herself before the Cross. I see her double over, and then she begins to weep. Such indescribable sorrow is written upon her face, and tears are running down her cheeks. Then the Lady says,

 

“Child!”

 

And now it is as if she transmits that suffering to me. First of all I am seized by spiritual exhaustion, which I feel very strongly. And I feel the same pains as before, yet not as intensely as the first time. Suddenly it is as if I collapse, and I tell the Lady, “I can’t bear it any more.” It lasts another moment, and then everything is over.

 

The Coredemptrix and Advocate

Once again the Lady is standing clearly before the Cross, and she says,

 

“Listen well and understand well what I am now going to explain. Once again I say: the Son came into the world as the Redeemer of humanity. The work of redemption was the Cross. He was sent by the Father.

 

Now, however, the Father and the Son wants to send the Lady throughout the whole world. For in the past, too, she went before the Son and followed Him. That is why I now stand on the world, on the globe. The Cross is firmly fixed upon it, implanted in it. Now the Lady places herself before it, as the Mother of the Son, who with Him accomplished this work of redemption. This image speaks for itself and shall already be brought into the world, because the world needs the Cross again.

 

The Lady, however, stands as the Coredemptrix and Advocate before the Cross. Much controversy will arise over this. The Church, Rome, however, shall not be afraid to take up this struggle. It can only make the Church stronger and more powerful. This I am saying to theologians. Furthermore I tell them: take this matter seriously. Once again I say: the Son always looks for the little, the simple for His cause. Child, I hope you have grasped this well and can refute all objections.”

 

Rapid spreading of the prayer

“Now I am speaking to you in particular, child. See to the rapid spreading.”

 

I say to the Lady, “How am I capable of this? I am so afraid of it.” Then the Lady says,

 

“You are afraid? But I am helping you! You will find that the spreading will happen as if by itself. You are on the right path. This shall and must happen. The people who accept this prayer shall make a promise to pray it every day. You cannot estimate the great value this will have. You do not know what the future has in store.”

 

The world in degeneration

And now the Lady lets me see the world and it is as if snakes were creeping all over the globe. Then she says,

 

“People still do not realize what a serious plight the world is in. Because people are becoming so shallow, they cannot realize how much harm this is doing to the faith.”

 

After this the Lady looks in front of herself for a long time, as if gazing far into the distance. Then she says,

 

“Child, these times are the same as the times before the Son came. That is why I cannot insist enough that people, that Rome, that everyone help fight for the cause of the Son. I know that there is some revival here and there, but far from what is needed to save the world. And the world must be saved from degeneration, disaster and war. Send this prayer and image to those countries where faith has declined.”

 

Peace

“And then I speak for your spiritual director. Tell him that he shall act. I will help, and you shall do only what I say. For I wish to be the Lady of All Nations, who wants to help the world in this time. Nobody knows which way to turn. Very well then, go back to your simple faith, and the world will again have peace.”

 

Now the Lady goes away, very slowly, and I hear her say again,

 

“This time is Our time.”


32nd MESSAGE

 

April 29, 1951

 

The Lady of All Nations

I see a bright light; the Lady slowly comes forth from it. Now I see her standing before me clearly, and she says,

 

“I am standing here as the Lady of All Nations, and I come right now in order to show that I wish to be the Lady of All Nations.

 

Listen carefully. You see me standing here upon the globe, against the Cross of the Son. You have not forgotten to pass on anything. Only that the loin-cloth was not there yet. It was worn by the Son; say this.”

 

The dogma of the Coredemptrix

“I stand here as the Coredemptrix and Advocate. Every thought should be directed at that. Repeat this after me: the new dogma shall be the dogma of the Coredemptrix. ‘Co’––this I stress especially. I have said: much controversy will arise over that. Once again I tell you: the Church, Rome, will carry through with it and fight for it. The Church, Rome, will incur opposition and stand firm. The Church, Rome, will grow stronger and more powerful insofar as she stands firm in the fight. My intention and my instruction for you is none other than to urge the Church, the theologians, onward to this fight. For the Father, the Son, the Spirit wants to bring the Lady, chosen to bring the Redeemer, into this world as Coredemptrix and Advocate.”

 

This time is Our time

“I have said: this time is Our time. By this I mean the following: the world is caught up in degeneration and superficiality; it does not know which direction to turn. That is why the Father is sending me to be the Advocate, so that the Holy Spirit will come. For the world is not saved by force, the world will be saved by the Spirit. For it is nothing other than ideas which rule the world. Very well then, Church of Rome, know your task. Bring your ideas, bring Christ anew.”

 

The Lady under the Cross

Now the Lady moves away from the Cross, and once more I feel those terrible pains very fiercely. This lasts for a while, and then I see the Lady standing before the Cross as in a haze. Then again violent spiritual and bodily pains come over me. I feel so exhausted; it is as if I were going to collapse, and I say, “I can’t bear it any more.”

 

Meanwhile I see the Lady collapsing beneath the Cross, and she throws both her arms around the feet of her Son, while weeping bitterly. After this I see her rise. From the right I see a sword appearing, with its point directed at the Lady’s heart. Then I hear her say,

 

“That was the stab which was predicted to me.”

 

It is already predestined

Then all pain and spiritual depression fall away from me, and I again see the Lady clearly, standing before the Cross. She looks at me and says,

 

“Child, pass it on well that those who fight and work for this cause, which the Son wants to be realized, are to do so with great ardor and zeal.”

 

Now the Lady smiles and says,

 

“I will help them. I told you, recited to you, that simple prayer to the Father and the Son. See to it that it is made known throughout the world, among all peoples. They all have a right to it. I assure you that the world will change.

 

But you, child, shall simply pass on what I say. Your spiritual director shall simply do my will. You ask how it will come about? Just by spreading it; nothing else is requested for the time being. It is only that this shall precede. I say once more: precede. This image will be used as a preceding work of peace and redemption. Later on they will use this image for the Coredemptrix ...”

 

Now the Lady pauses for a moment. Then she says once more very emphatically,

 

“Coredemptrix!

 

The Lady, the Mother, shared in the sufferings, both spiritual and bodily. She always preceded. When the Father selected her, she was already the Coredemptrix with the Redeemer, He who came into the world as Man-God. Tell this to your theologians. I know, the struggle will be severe and great, ...”

 

––and then the Lady smiles to herself, and it is as if she gazes into the far distance––

 

“but it is already predestined.”

 

The seriousness of the times

Then the Lady says to me, while coming closer,

 

“Now you see me standing here clearly, very clearly. This is how the image is to go over the world. Child, insist that these things be carried through. No, they shall not hesitate; they shall act. The times are much too serious. Nobody realizes how serious.

 

I also want to come among those peoples who are being kept away from the Son. Save those who are being forced to turn away from Him. It is your duty. The world is degenerating so much that it was necessary for the Father and the Son to send me into this world, among all nations, in order to come as Advocate and to redeem. Tell this to the theologians.”

 

Then I see the Lady leave, and again I hear her say,

 

“This time is Our time.”


 

33rd MESSAGE

 

May 31, 1951[1]

 

Feast of Mary, Mediatrix of All Graces

 

Coredemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate

The Lady is again there, and she says,

 

“I stand here and come to tell you that I wish to be Mary, the Lady of All Nations. Look carefully. I am standing before the Cross of the Redeemer. My head, hands and feet as of a human being, as of the Son of Man; the body as of the Spirit. I have firmly placed my feet upon the globe, for in this time the Father and the Son wants to bring me into this world as Coredemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate. This will be the new and final Marian dogma. This image will precede. This dogma will be much disputed, yet it will be carried through. I have repeated these things so that you may once more clarify this to your spiritual director and theologians and refute their objections.”

 

The flock of sheep

“Pay close attention now and describe what I let you see. This is the last instruction I will give for the image. Look carefully. I am standing on the globe. Around the globe, child, you thought you were seeing clouds. But now look carefully at what I will let you see.”

 

Now I see the clouds changing into living sheep. From left and right around the globe a flock of sheep comes forth on both sides, as if from out of the depths. Here and there I see some black sheep among them. Lambs lie down at the foot of the globe. Sheep come walking along, some grazing. But most have their heads upturned, as if gazing intently at the Lady and the Cross. There are also sheep lying on the ground with their heads raised, looking at the Lady. It is a beautiful and peaceful

 

sight. Then the Lady says to me,

 

“Child, imprint this image well upon your memory and describe it well. This image of the flock of sheep represents the nations of the whole world, who will not find rest until they lie down and in tranquility look up at the Cross, the center of this world.”

 

The rays of Grace, Redemption and Peace

“Now look at my hands and describe what you see.”

 

Now it is as if there, in the middle of her hands, had been a wound. From there, from each hand, three rays of light are coming forth, shining upon the sheep. The Lady smiles and says,

 

“These are three rays, the rays of Grace, Redemption and Peace. Through the Grace of my Lord and Master, and out of love for humanity, the Father sent to the world His only Son as Redeemer. Now both of them want to send the Holy, the True Spirit, who alone can be Peace. Hence: Grace, Redemption, Peace.

 

The Father and the Son wish to send Mary, the Lady of All Nations, in this time as Coredemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate.

 

Here I have given you a clear and distinct explanation of this image. With this the image is complete.”[2]

 

A promise

“You, child, are the instrument, merely the instrument, for passing on these things. See to it that the prayer, which briefly and powerfully asks for the sending of the Holy, True Spirit, is spread as quickly as possible. Tell your spiritual director and all who cooperate in this that I promise to give grace for soul and body––according to the Son’s will––to all who pray before the image and call upon Mary, the Lady of All Nations.”

 

From country to country, from town to town

“You should not treat this as something for a limited circle. For I am the Lady of All Nations. This image shall go from country to country, from town to town. That is the intention of the work of redemption.

 

Now I speak to your spiritual director and the others who are cooperating. Be aware of your duty and do not hesitate to carry through with what I have said. Once more I want to say: I promise to help all who are in spiritual or bodily need, if they do my will, the Father’s will.”

 

The women and men of this world

Now the Lady waits a moment and gazes before herself. Then she says,

 

“Theologians, you will have no difficulty if you consider that the Lord and Master had already predestined the Lady for sacrifice. For the sword had already been pointed at the heart of the Mother. With this I mean to say that I always went before the Son in spiritual and bodily sufferings.

 

And now I speak to the women of this world: women of this world, do you know what it means to be a woman? It means making sacrifices. Abandon all of your egoism and vanity, and try to bring to the center, the Cross, all children and those who are still wandering around grazing. Make sacrifices.

 

And now I speak to the men of this world. I say to them: from you, men, has to come the strength and the will to lead the world to the sole Prince of this world, the Lord Jesus Christ.”

 

Act in a modern way and promptly

“I have explained to you, child, what this message will mean for the world. You, through your spiritual director and others, shall see to it that this is made known to the world. This is my wish for today. For I wish to be the Lady of All Nations. Act in a modern way and promptly.”

 

And now the Lady is slowly leaving, as she says,

 

“This time is Our time.”

 

[1] This is the first time that the Lady appeared on May 31. In several dioceses the Feast of Mary, Mediatrix of All Graces was celebrated on this day. See also footnote 67.

[2]The painter had already begun the image of the Lady of All Nations when these last directions were given regarding the image. The already-painted clouds had to be changed into sheep. It was, of course, a very difficult task to portray the Lady of All Nations in a painting. In the following message the Lady expresses her approval of the work done. See also Appendix II.

Feast of the Visitation[1]

 

A great action for God

I see the Lady again, standing in a bright light. She smiles and says, while looking around her,

 

“I am content. See to the outspreading. I have said: from here a great action for God is to begin, and all are to cooperate in it.”

 

Explanation of the new dogma

“Now look carefully and listen. The following is an explanation of the new dogma. As Coredemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate I stand on the globe before the Cross of the Redeemer. By the will of the Father, the Redeemer came to the world. For this, the Father used the Lady. Thus, from the Lady the Redeemer received only––now I am stressing the word ‘only’––the 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 Coredemptrix.

 

I have said: this time is Our time. This means that the Father and the Son wants to send the Coredemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate throughout the whole world in this time.”

 

Love of God, Love of Neighbor

Then the Lady remains before me for a long time without saying anything. Then, looking at her hands, she says,

 

“Now look carefully at my hands. From them come forth the rays of Grace, Redemption and Peace. The rays are shining upon all nations, upon all the sheep. Among these people there are many of good will. To be of good will means to keep the first and greatest commandment. The first and greatest commandment is Love. One who possesses love will honor one’s Lord and Creator in His creation. One who possesses love will do nothing dishonorable towards one’s neighbor. That is what this world lacks: Love of God, Love of Neighbor.”

 

Who once was Mary

“This time is Our time. All nations must honor the Lord and Master in His creation. All nations shall pray for the True and Holy Spirit. That is why I have given this short and powerful prayer. So I say once more: this prayer shall be spread rapidly. The whole world is falling into degeneration. People of good will shall pray every day that the True Spirit may come! I am the Lady of All Nations. This time is Our time.

 

‘Who once was Mary’ means: many people have known Mary as Mary. Now, however, in this new era which is about to begin, I wish to be the Lady of All Nations. Everyone understands this.

 

Tell this to your spiritual director. Tell him that I am content with everything, and now I stress the word ‘everything’. And I tell you, child, to do and pass on what I want. Have no fear; pass it on!”

 

And now the Lady slowly goes away.

 

[1]Due to a decree made on March 21, 1969, this feast is now celebrated on May 31st. See also footnote 67.

August 15, 1951

 

Feast of the Assumption of Mary into Heaven

 

The dogma of the Assumption

I see the Lady. She says,

 

“Today I come as the Lady of All Nations.”

 

Then the Lady points around herself. She looks at me and says,

 

“I crushed the snake with my foot. I became united with the Son, just as I was always united with Him. In the history of the Church, this, the dogma, preceded.[1] As Coredemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate I stand here now in this time, in Our time. The dogma of the Assumption had to precede. The final and greatest dogma is to follow. The Sacrifice is present and shall be present in the midst of the world, in this time.”

 

Entrusted to the Mother

Now the Lady moves away from the Cross and once again I feel intense pain. Then the Lady places herself again before the Cross, and I am greatly distressed at the sight of her suffering. I see a bright light coming from the Cross. The Lady says,

 

“Humanity is entrusted to the Mother. For the Son said: ‘Woman, behold your son; son, behold your mother’––therefore Coredemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate. Tell this to your theologians. Say that I wish to be and shall be the Coredemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate.”

 

The final Marian dogma

“This image shall precede; this image shall be spread. Tell this to your spiritual director. I am satisfied with everything, including his prudence. But ... the Lady of All Nations will place herself in the world. This is the will of the Father and the Son, with whom I am completely united again. Just as the Son knew me, so did He take me back again. The final Marian dogma will be the greatest one: to stand as Coredemptrix before the Cross in this time.”

 

Do not hesitate

“I have said: disasters will come, natural disasters. I have said: the great ones will disagree with one another. I have said: the world is falling into degeneration. That is why the Father and the Son now sends the Lady back into the world as she was. The Lady was once known as Mary.

 

The world is falling into degeneration, is in degeneration. The Netherlands is on the brink of degeneration; that is why I have put my foot on it. From the Netherlands I want to give my words to the world. My other foot is placed on Germany. Die Mutter Gottes weint über die Kinder Deutschlands.[2]They have always been my children, and that is why, from Germany too, I wish to be brought into the world as the Lady of All Nations.

 

I shall help you and all who see to this. I even want the outspreading to penetrate into those countries which are cut off from others. There also will the Lady of All Nations give her blessing. See to this; do not hesitate. For I myself never hesitated. I went before the Son on the way to the Cross. This image shall precede. This image shall be brought into the world. Do you realize, Rome, how much everything is being undermined? Years will pass by, years will elapse. But the more the years, the less faith; the more the years, the greater the apostasy. The Lady of All Nations stands here and says, I want to help them, and I may help them.”

 

Love

“The first and greatest commandment for humanity is Love. One who possesses love will honor one’s Lord and Master in His creation, that is to say, see the greatness of His creation, including the Sacrifice. One who possesses love will do unto others all which one would want done unto oneself. Love is the first and the greatest commandment which Christ gave. This is what I want to bring today. This message is to be passed on. You are the instrument.”

 

To what is good, to Christ

“The Church will encounter much opposition on account of the new dogma. It will arouse astonishment in others. It will only make the Church stronger and more powerful. Do you know, Rome, how great your power is? Are you aware of what you have in your hands? Simply bring humanity to what is good, to Christ. Other little things do not matter.

 

I wish to be the Lady of All Nations. I will and may bestow Grace, Redemption and Peace upon all who ask me. I promise this today.”

 

One in Christ

“You, child, shall wait quietly. Your spiritual director should not be so afraid.

 

Bring all nations together as one mind. Let all nations be one in Jesus Christ.”

 

And now the Lady slowly goes away.

 

[1] The Lady is here referring to the dogma of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary into Heaven.

[2] This sentence was said in German and means: “The Mother of God weeps for the people of Germany.”

September 20, 1951

 

Spiritual undermining

The Lady is there again. She looks at me for a long time without saying anything. Then she starts speaking and says,

 

“I was called Miriam, or Mary. Now I wish to be the Lady of All Nations. Child, tell them that time presses.”

 

Now I see ‘52’ before me. The Lady says,

 

“Great and serious events are imminent––spiritual, economic and material; spiritual events, spiritual undermining.”

 

Benevolent and broad-minded

“Christian people throughout the whole world shall join together. Do Christian people realize what others do and sacrifice for their ideals? The Church shall and must be ready to meet great dangers. Christian people shall and must search their hearts. They shall remember what their part is in this world.

 

Once again I warn Rome, and then I tell the Holy Father: you are the fighter in this time; see to it that your subjects are benevolent and broad-minded in their work and in their judgment. Only in this way can the world be won for the faith.”

 

The prayer for the True Spirit

Now all at once I see snowflakes about the Lady, and they are falling upon the globe. Then the Lady says,

 

“Child, why is this prayer not being spread? Why such a long wait? I taught it to you, so that it would be brought into the world among the people. Let the people pray this short, simple prayer every day. This prayer is short and simple, so that everyone in this quick and modern world can pray it. It is given in order to call down the True Spirit upon the world.”

 

Christian peoples, unite

Now the Lady looks about her and then at the globe. Then I see, here and there, dark, black patches appearing on the globe. The Lady says to me,

 

“These are the economic and material events which will come upon the world. I have said: there will be disasters; there will be natural disasters. Now I tell you: all those black patches you see now are the disasters that are yet to come. And now I am not only talking about natural disasters.

 

Once again I call out to all Christian peoples: it is high time; unite! And you, child, shall pass this on. You shall tell the world that it is the Lady of All Nations who tells you this.”

 

The fight for the Marian dogma

Now I see a large room in which all kinds of priests are gathered. They are engaged in a fierce dispute. Every now and then it even seems as if they would lash out at each other. The Lady points there and says,

 

“You shall tell the theologians to keep up their fight for the Marian dogma of Coredemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate.”

 

Then she holds her hand above the heads of several priests and says,

 

“I will help them.”

 

The Lady of All Nations and unity

“The Lady of All Nations will come throughout the whole world. And in those countries which have rejected me, I shall return as the Lady of All Nations, standing on the globe before the Cross, surrounded by the flock of Christ. This is how I wish to come and will come. I will answer––according to the Son’s will––those who call upon me this way, as the Lady of All Nations.

 

The Lord and Master shall be served and honored in His creation. People shall follow the first and greatest commandment among one another.

 

I wish to be called the Lady of All Nations in this time. Because the world is pining for unity in everything which concerns itself, the Lord and Master wants to bring spiritual unity among the nations of this world. For this reason He is sending Miriam, or Mary, as the Lady of All Nations.”

 

The Holy Father

“Monasteries shall see to the outspreading. The Holy Father shall give his blessing to this work. For he is the fighter in this time. He will be taken up among Us.”

 

Now I see the Pope[1] standing in an indescribable light, and next to him the Lady of All Nations. The Lady is holding a crown in her hand, and she places it on the Pope’s head. After that she places a cross in his right hand.

 

This image vanishes from my sight. Then the Lady is again standing alone before me, and she says,

 

“Child, you shall pass all this on well and tell your spiritual director: so be it.”

 

Then the Lady slowly disappears.

 

[1]The Pope seen by the visionary is Pope Pius XII.


37th MESSAGE

 

November 15, 1951

 

Coredemptrix by the will of the Father

I see the Lady before me. She says,

 

“Tell the world that I wish to be the Lady of All Nations. Let the world pray to the Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the Father, asking Him to send the Holy Spirit so that the True Spirit may live in the hearts of all nations. Ask that 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 in the middle of the world, the flock of Jesus Christ all around. I come in this time as the Coredemptrix, Mediatrix. I was already Coredemptrix at the Annunciation.”

 

Now I ask the Lady what this means. She answers,

 

“This means: the Mother was made Coredemptrix by the will of the Father. Tell this to your theologians. Say, further, that this will be the final dogma of Marian history.”

 

The image shall precede

“This image shall precede, once again, shall precede. Bring this image into the world. And now I am speaking not for your country alone, but for the whole world. This world is degenerating. The world will suffer disaster upon disaster. The world will be and is economically and materially ruined. Wars will continue as long as no help comes from the True Spirit. Bring the people back to the Cross.”

 

One commandment: Love

Then the Lady points at the globe. I am overcome with great terror, and now I see the globe turning black. If I look carefully, it is not black everywhere to the same degree; in the East, especially, it is very bad. The Lady says,

 

“Child, pass on the following well: the peoples of this world shall keep one commandment in mind, and that is Love. One who possesses love will serve one’s Lord and Master in creation. Keep this one commandment in mind: Love. If that is again brought among people, the world will be saved.”

 

Then the Lady waves her finger to and fro and says,

 

“The heathens of this world want to show you how to do it, Christians. Christian people, know your duty.

 

And now I am speaking to the Church of Rome, and so I say to the Pope: see to it that your subjects know how to bring the love of the Son Jesus Christ into this world, this degenerate world. The Church of Rome must fulfill this commandment to the utmost. And then I say: be broad-minded. Try to place yourself in this modern world with Jesus Christ on the Cross. Try to understand these words well and to carry them out. This world can only be saved by the Church which abides by this doctrine.”

 

England - America

Then I see England lying before me. The Lady says,

 

“I am now speaking to England as I say: I shall come back.”

 

The Lady says the latter very forcefully, as if she wanted to say, “Nobody can stop me.” And it is as if she would really step onto England.

 

“You, England, will be struck in your dominions.”

 

I see several countries lying before me; there is unrest among the people, most of whom are black.

 

“You, England, will not be able to continue, except through the support of others. Catholics of England, know your task and work for the Church of Rome. Bring the Lady of All Nations to England.”

 

Then the Lady points at America and says angrily,

 

“America, what is keeping you? Are you brave enough to see it through? This is what the Lady of All Nations is asking you.”

 

Germany

After that I see Germany lying before me. The Lady says,

 

“Look where I have placed my foot; it is on Germany and the other one on the Netherlands. And so I say: poor people of Germany. Have you still not learned enough? Do not be misled by fine words. Christian people of Germany, return to the Cross and pray to the Lady of All Nations that she may help Germany.”

 

Now the Lady looks before herself as if gazing deeply into the world. Then she says,

 

“This must become a great action.”

 

The Netherlands

Now I see the Netherlands. As the Lady waves her finger to and fro in warning, she says,

 

“And now I speak to your own country, and I say: Netherlands, be on your guard! Your people, too, Netherlands, are going the wrong way.”

 

Then it is as if I see many side roads and winding paths. I see that the people going those ways are tumbling down them.

 

France

Now I see that the Lady is pointing at France, and she says,

 

“France, you will be and have been destroyed in your faith.”

 

Then I see a red glow coming over France. The Lady continues,

 

“France, you will––and now I am addressing the great ones––save your country, save it only by bringing the people back to the Cross and Votre Dame.[1] Your people must be brought back to the Lady of All Nations.”

 

Italy - The Pope

Next I see Italy. With her finger raised in warning, the Lady says,

 

“Italy, you have had your crosses. Stay on guard. Rome, remember your poor people.

 

And now once again I am speaking to the Pope, and I say: you are the fighter, you are the savior for this world. You will be taken up among Us. This Pope will be revered by the peoples of the entire world.

 

Now I am speaking to the whole world as I say: peoples, no matter who or what you are, turn to your Creator with all your needs. Learn to find Him, wherever you are. Ask the Lady of All Nations to be your Advocate.”

 

The visionary and the painting

Now the Lady says, while looking at me with a smile,

 

“Child, say that I am pleased with the beginnings of the action. Tell all those who are cooperating that they shall even more, more and more, bring the prayer with the image into the world. I shall help them.”

 

Now I see the painting of the Lady of All Nations before me.[2] The Lady says,

 

“And now I am speaking to you, child, in particular. You shall always come before this image––and I say ‘this image’––in order to pray for all people who are in need, bodily and spiritual. You shall continue to do so until the end is here. I have a special plan for this image; you will hear about this later. Tell your spiritual director: so be it.”

 

And then I see the Lady slowly going away.

 

[1] French for ‘Your Lady’.

[2] The painting of the Lady of All Nations was already finished. It was still in Germany, where it had been painted. See also Appendix II.


38th MESSAGE

 

December 31, 1951

 

The doctrine is good

The Lady is there again. She looks at me with a smile, and she remains so for a long time. Then the Lady starts to speak, and she says,

 

“Child, look carefully and listen to what I have come to tell you today. I am not bringing a new doctrine. The doctrine is good, but the laws can be changed.”

 

Now the Lady points at the globe; suddenly I see Rome lying before me and I see a Pope.[1] Then the Lady says,

 

“Tell the Pope that he is on the right path. You have to pass this on, because people think otherwise. The spirit of righteousness and truth shall always reign over the world. Once again I say: this Pope is on the right path. Once again I say: this time is Our time.

 

I will now give you an explanation for my coming. Once again I say: I am not coming to bring a new doctrine––the doctrine is already there. I am coming to bring you another message. Pass this one on well.”

 

Already Coredemptrix at the beginning

Now the Lady lets me see her image again very clearly. It is as if she would come forward, and then she says,

 

“Pass on the following well. The Father, the Lord and Master, brought the Handmaid of the Lord into this world as Miriam, or Mary. She was chosen from among all women as Coredemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate. Tell your theologians: she was already made Coredemptrix at the beginning.”

 

Time presses

“This time is Our time. Now the Father and the Son wants to be asked to send the Spirit. I recited to you the simple prayer and let you see how I wish to have it spread over the whole world. Very well then, carry on with the outspreading. This simple prayer has been given for all peoples. Do your work, and see to the outspreading.”

 

Then I say to the Lady, “But I am being held back.” Looking at me, the Lady smiles and says,

 

“You shall do what I say. Go to your bishop and tell him that I wish to be the Lady of All Nations, who is sent by the Father in this time. Once again I say: the Church of Rome should do nothing which is in conflict with its doctrine. Very well then, this action is not in conflict with doctrine. Time presses; know this well. All peoples are groaning under the yoke of Satan. How badly this has penetrated, no one knows. I am warning the peoples of this world. The time is serious and pressing. The Church of Rome now has her chance. She will grow stronger as the fight increases.”

 

The final dogma of Marian history

“The Lady of All Nations stands in the middle of the world before the Cross. She comes under this name as the Coredemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate, in this time. She will be taken up into Marian history under this title. The new and final dogma of Marian history will be the dogma of the Coredemptrix and Mediatrix. As Advocate I stand now in this anxious time. All of you, no matter who or what you are, ask that the true Holy Spirit may come. This you shall ask the Father and the Son. The Divine Trinity will again reign over the world. The Lady stands here as the Advocate. The issue here is the Creator, not the Lady. Tell this to your theologians. Ask them to send this simple prayer throughout the world, and the Lady will give the strength and power to carry it through.”

 

Simpler doctrine does not exist

Now the Lady points at the globe and says,

 

“I will let you see what is going to happen. It is through terrible strife and calamity that the world, those who have turned away from the Trinity, will come back to the Church. Therefore I say once again: Rome, seize your opportunity. Be broad-minded and act in love alone. Love can save this wretched world. Bring all peoples back to their Creator. Teach them how simple it is to see the Creator. People are to treat their neighbors as themselves. Simpler doctrine does not exist. Let everyone hold fast to these two things, for then you have the Church of Rome in your hands. Simple faith––that can bring salvation to the people.”

 

Russia - China - America - Europe

“In Russia a great change will come about.”

 

Now the Lady pauses a moment, and then she says very clearly and slowly,

 

“After much fighting.

 

China will turn to Mother Church.”

 

Again the Lady pauses before adding very slowly,

 

“After much fighting.

 

America, remember your faith. Do not bring a false spirit or confusion among your people and abroad. The Lady of All Nations warns America to remain what it used to be.

 

Europe, you should seek for peace among yourselves. Help those who are in need, in spiritual need. Prepare yourself for the fight, the spiritual fight. The Lady of All Nations wishes to be brought among everyone, no matter who or what they are. This is why she received this title from her Lord and Master.”

 

Do not be afraid

“You, child, should not be afraid to pass on this message. I shall help you and all those who are cooperating in this. Tell your spiritual director in the name of the Lady of All Nations that he shall cooperate in the outspreading. Tell your spiritual director not to be afraid, but just to do what he is told. He shall ask to be allowed to do this: simply to bring this image with the prayer into the world.”

 

The promise regarding the prayer

“The Lady of All Nations hereby promises that those who ask will be heard according to the will of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. This prayer has been given for the redemption of the world. This prayer has been given for the conversion of the world. Pray this prayer in all that you do. This prayer shall be spread in churches and by modern means. The people of this world shall learn to invoke the Lady of All Nations, who once was Mary, as their Advocate, that the world may be delivered from degeneration, disaster and war. Tell this to your theologians. This time is Our time. Come before this image and pray.”

 

And now the Lady slowly disappears.

 

[1]The visionary sees a Pope without knowing which Pope it is.


39th MESSAGE

 

February 17, 1952

 

The Church and the Cross

The Lady is there again. She comes very close to me, and says,

 

“Listen carefully and tell the theologians and peoples of this world to interpret my message well and to seek to understand it. The Lord Jesus Christ came and brought the Church and the Cross as a gift from the Lord and Creator. The Church is, and will remain. The Lord and Creator desires gratitude from the creature. The Church is the community of peoples who shall adore and honor the Lord and Creator, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. All those who have been placed over the community shall see to it that the Church remains and expands.”

 

The time has come

“This time is Our time. The Lord and Creator deems it necessary to give the Church a warning through the Lady of All Nations. The time has come. Tell this to the theologians. The Church, Rome, is now getting its chance. All Christians of this time are responsible for their descendants.

 

Tell the Pope it is all right. By the will of her Lord and Master the Lady of All Nations will assist him. The Pope will carry everything through. This Pope is the fighter and the Holy Father of the Christians of today and the future. Nations hereafter will revere him. He will be taken up among Us.

 

The Church is, and she shall remain. Doctrine is, and it shall remain. The form and laws, however, can be changed through the intercession of the Holy Spirit. Tell this to your theologians. Christ, the Son of the Father, also brought the Cross into this world with Him. With the Cross came the Sacrifice.”

 

The Handmaid of the Lord

Now the Lady remains there in silence for a long time. Then she says,

 

“The Lord and Master chose a woman called Miriam, or Mary, from among all peoples. She would, by the will of the Father, bring the Son of Man into the world with His Church and the Cross. The Lady was the Handmaid of the Lord. She brought forth the Son of Man by the will of the Father, and thus was necessarily allied with the Church and the Cross. The Lady stands here before you in this time as the Coredemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate.

 

Understand the following words well: the Lady of All Nations may and shall bestow Grace, Redemption and Peace upon all the peoples of this world who have recourse to her. You, however, shall all bring the Lady of All Nations throughout the entire world.”

 

The sign of the Lady

Now the Lady points at the globe. I see the globe rotating under her feet, and snowflakes are falling thickly everywhere. Then the Lady says,

 

“Did you see this? The Lady of All Nations will be brought throughout the world in the same way, from town to town, from country to country. This simple prayer will create one community.

 

Ask your bishop whether he would agree to have the prayer brought forth in its entirety: ‘May the Lady of All Nations, who once was Mary, be our Advocate.’ Tell your bishop that the Lady of All Nations shall help and assist him; that the spreading really must be carried out. Say that the time has not yet come; that the Lady of All Nations first has to be brought throughout the whole world. The sign of the Lady of All Nations will later on be seen throughout the entire world. Let them understand this well. False powers will fall.”

 

With the Cross in your hand

The Lady waits a long time again and then says,

 

“The Church, Rome, shall devote its attention to the peoples of this world. The sheep must be gathered into one fold.

 

You Christian people, each of you personally, take the Cross in hand.”

 

As the Lady says this, it is as if she picks up that Cross and lets it be seen.

 

“With that Cross in your hand you will possess the Kingdom. With that Cross in your hand you will encounter your neighbor. With that Cross in your hand you will vanquish your foe. Thus shall the Christian people of this world feel themselves one with the Church and the Cross.

 

The Remembrance of the Lord Jesus Christ has to be brought among the peoples more. Bishops, you can see to this. You can have the Sacrifice celebrated in a more communal way. Understand these words well.”

 

Grace, Redemption and Peace

Once again the Lady pauses, and then she says,

 

“Christian people have been warned. All of you, place yourselves under the Cross and the Sacrifice, and the heathens will not overpower you.

 

I ask bishops and priests to assist this world, this humanity. I shall help them. The Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the Father, will bring the Holy, True Spirit––if all of you ask for it. Once again I say: the Lady of All Nations can and will bring Grace, Redemption and Peace.

 

And now I speak to you, child. See to the outspreading. Work for this alone, and give spiritual and bodily help by saying the prayer of the Lady of All Nations. Come before this image and implore. I will, when the time has arrived, give a message about this image. Say this. Say that this image is meant for everyone.”

 

Now the Lady slowly goes away.


40th MESSAGE

 

March 19, 1952

 

The Pope will receive his sign

I am sitting before the painting, praying for the Pope. Suddenly a voice starts speaking, and I see the Lady of All Nations standing before me. She is very serious and says,

 

“Tell the Pope that he will receive his sign from the Lady of All Nations. The Church, Rome, will face a great struggle. Before the year 2000 arrives, much will have been changed within the Church, the community. The essence, however, will remain.”

 

One fold

Then I see, so to speak, the sheep running confusedly all around the globe. Many are fleeing. It is as if the flock is splitting up. The Lady points at it and says,

 

“Do you see that? The Church, the sheep, have been scattered and still more will take to flight. The Lady of All Nations, however, will bring them back into one fold.”

 

It is now as if the Lady would try to bring the entire flock back together again with her hands, and in a soft and sad voice she again says,

 

“Into one fold.”

 

Invoke the Lady of All Nations

“Ask your bishop to invoke the Lady of All Nations, and I will give him his sign. Everyone invoke the Lady of All Nations. And you, child, come before this image and pray as long as you can.”

 

And then all of a sudden the Lady is gone.


41st MESSAGE

 

April 6, 1952

 

Palm Sunday

 

Who once was Mary

The Lady is before me again. She says,

 

“You should listen carefully and pass on what I am coming to tell you today. Tell the theologians that I am not satisfied with the alteration of the prayer. ‘May the Lady of All Nations, who once was Mary, be our Advocate’––that is to remain as it is.[1] This time is Our time.

 

Tell the following to the theologians: at the sacrifice of the Cross came ‘the Lady’. The Son said to His Mother, ‘Woman, behold your son.’ Thus the change came about at the sacrifice of the Cross.[2] The Lord and Creator chose Miriam, or Mary, from among all women to become the Mother of His Divine Son. At the sacrifice of the Cross she became ‘the Lady’, the Coredemptrix and Mediatrix. This was announced by the Son while He was returning to the Father. That is why I am bringing these new words in this time, and saying: I am the Lady of All Nations, who once was Mary. Tell this to your theologians. This is what these words mean for the theologians.”

 

No matter who or what you are

“This time is Our time. The new dogma which is to come is the final Marian dogma: the Lady of All Nations as the Coredemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate. At the sacrifice of the Cross the Son gave this title to the entire world. No matter who or what you are, for you I am the Lady.

 

I have come to tell this degenerate and wretched world: all of you, unite. You, Christian people, will find one another by the Lady of All Nations, just as you find one another at the Cross of the Son. Much will and must be changed within the community, in the Church. You, people, no matter who or what you are, support and help one another. In the first and greatest commandment you will find everything you need. May the Lady of All Nations, who once was Mary, be our Advocate.”

 

A great task

“The Lady especially wishes to come to those places where she used to be and to those where she has not yet been.

 

You have a great task to accomplish”,

 

the Lady tells me.

 

“Let all those who cooperate in this great work do so in all seriousness and with great zeal. Your task, child, has not yet come to an end. Tell your bishop to pass on the prayer to the whole world. I shall help him. I shall assist your spiritual director till the end.

 

Tell the Pope that it is good. He will understand me. Tell the Pope to prepare everything for the new dogma. Tell the Pope to prepare all the changes and to discuss them with those who were chosen by him. Tell the Pope that the time is now dawning.”

 

Pray the prayer

“The Lady of All Nations will stand above the community. Let everyone ask using this simple prayer, and the Lady will help them according to the will of the Father and the Son. She was Mary, the Handmaid of the Lord. She now wishes to be the Lady of All Nations. No matter who or what you are, come to the Lady of All Nations.

 

I warn the Christian people and say: realize the seriousness of this time. Join hands. Plant the Cross in the midst of the world. You are all responsible for your task which you have to accomplish in this time. Do not let yourselves be led to the wrong spirit. Pray every day that the Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the Father, may send the Holy Spirit over this world, and the Lady of All Nations, who once was Mary, will be your Advocate. So be it.”

 

And then the Lady is gone.

 

[1]Initially the prayer was published without the words ‘who once was Mary’, due to the intervention of the bishop. Here, however, the Lady expresses her explicit wish that the prayer remain as she gave it. This wish having been communicated to the bishop, the omitted words were then reincorporated into the prayer.

[2] John 19:26 uses the word ‘Woman’. The Lady quotes it in explaining when she became ‘the Lady’. In Dutch the word ‘Vrouwe’ means both ‘Woman’ and ‘Lady’. See also footnote 19.


42nd MESSAGE

 

June 15, 1952

 

The great action

“Here I am again, the Lady of All Nations.”

 

Now the Lady looks at me for a long time without speaking. Then she says,

 

“In the previous message I gave you the meaning of ‘The Lady of All Nations’. Today I have come to tell you: the great action of the Lady of All Nations has to begin now. Bring the messages into the world. The Lady of All Nations shall help you and all those who fight for this. The great action shall begin. This image will precede. Later on there will be no nation without the Lady of All Nations. This title begins now. This time is Our time.”

 

Coredemption

Now the Lady gazes before herself for a long time. Then she starts speaking again, saying,

 

“The Lady, who once was Mary...

 

At the departure of the Lord Jesus Christ coredemption first began. It was not until the departure of the Lord Jesus Christ that she became the Mediatrix and Advocate. At the departure of the Lord Jesus Christ He gave the nations the Lady of All Nations. Now the time has come for her to bring this title into the world. Tell this to your theologians. Tell your bishop that I am satisfied. The prayer has now been brought forth correctly.[1] Tell those who are cooperating that all people have to pray the prayer.”

 

With one accord

“Let the regular and secular clergy[2] work together. In other matters, too, they will have to come closer together. After all, you are all apostles of the Master. Seek and find one another. If the apostles are divided in their views, how can the peoples be one?

 

I implore and ask the Church of Rome: fight in this time with one accord for the one Truth, the Lord and Creator of this world, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. This time is the time of the Holy Spirit. All of you, ask the Holy Spirit to bring the True Spirit over the world. The world is degenerating. The great ones of this world strive for power. The great ones of this world think only in materialistic terms. People are being scattered and misled.”

 

Now the Lady points at the globe. I see confusion and unrest among the peoples. The Lady says,

 

“Just look over all these countries. Nowhere unity, nowhere peace, nowhere tranquility for the peoples. Everywhere tension, everywhere anxiety. The Lord Jesus Christ allows this. His time will come. Beforehand there will be a time of unrest. Humanism, paganism, atheists, snakes––beforehand they will try to rule this world.”

 

See to the outspreading

“Today I have come to say that the great action against all this has to begin. And now I am speaking to your theologians and say: indeed, recognize the seriousness of this cause. And to those whom I chose at the beginning of this cause, I say: help with all your means and see to the outspreading, everyone in one’s own way. Now the time is at hand, the time of the Lady of All Nations. I shall help them.”

 

For a long time again the Lady says nothing and looks at me intently. Then she says,

 

“To you, child, I still have this to say: you have a great task to accomplish. Have courage; have no fear. The Lady of All Nations is standing here before you. This image is to remain here for the time being.[3] The Lady will give the sign.”

 

Then the Lady goes slowly away.

 

[1] The complete text of the prayer had now been approved by the bishop. See also footnote 44.

[2] See footnote 26.

[3] The visionary received this message in Germany. The painting of the Lady of All Nations was made in Germany and remained there until December of 1953. See also Appendix II


43rd MESSAGE

 

October 5, 1952

 

Three thoughts, one whole

“Here I am again. I have come to bring a special message. Pass on everything well.

 

Never has Miriam, or Mary, officially been called Coredemptrix in the community, in the Church. Never has she officially been called Mediatrix. Never has she officially been called Advocate. These three thoughts belong closely together. These three thoughts form one whole. That is why this will be the keystone of Marian history; thus will this become the dogma of Coredemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate.

 

And I am not reproaching theologians now as I say: why can’t you agree about this dogma? I will explain it yet again and make it even clearer.”

 

From the beginning

“The Father sent the Lord Jesus Christ as Redeemer for all peoples. The Lord Jesus Christ was this from the beginning. He became this at the Sacrifice and at His departure to the Father.

 

Miriam, or Mary, became the Handmaid of the Lord, chosen by the Father and the Holy Spirit. At the beginning she was––by this election––the Coredemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate of all nations. Only at the departure of the God-Man, the Lord Jesus Christ, did she become the Coredemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate.

 

At the departure of the Lord Jesus Christ, He gave Miriam, or Mary, to the nations in one act, giving her as ‘The Lady of All

 

Nations’. For He spoke the words, ‘Woman, behold your son; son, behold your mother.’ One act, and by this Miriam, or Mary, received this new title.”

 

The other dogmas

“How is it that this is entering the world only now: ‘The Lady of All Nations’? Because the Lord has awaited this time. The other dogmas had to precede, just as her life first had to precede the Lady of All Nations. All the dogmas that preceded comprise the life and the departure of the Lady. For the theologians this simple explanation will be sufficient. It was necessary to give this explanation once again.”

 

The burdensome task of the Pope

“Now I ask you, child, to keep listening carefully. Tell all who are placed over you and are cooperating that the time is now dawning. Do not be afraid; you will get to your Holy Father. Do not be afraid, the Lady of All Nations will give him his sign. Then tell the Pope that he is the fighter, the pioneer for this new time.”

 

It is as if I again see a hall in the Vatican. Many clerics are together there with all sorts of papers before them. Then I suddenly see the Holy Father again, alone. He too has many papers before him. The Lady says,

 

“Tell the Pope that the Lord and the Lady will assist him in his difficult and burdensome task, that he should prepare and carry out everything for the coming times. He knows what I mean.”

 

The Lady says this with a very special intonation as if speaking about the future.

 

“This time is Our time. A burdensome task is resting upon his shoulders. He shall check whether everything which he says and wants of the community, the Church, is being carried through. Tell him that. You, child, will get there, and do not hesitate or be afraid to say all this, all this which the Lady of All Nations has come to say. For she is the one who brought these messages. She only wants you to be the instrument and to obey her.

 

Empty hands

Now I inwardly tell the Lady that I have nothing to offer. I don’t understand why she is choosing me for this. Then the Lady says,

 

“You are telling me that you have only empty hands to offer. The Lady is only asking you to pass these messages on to those who need them. The Lady will do the rest. Be faithful. Help the people who are in need, and by this I mean: spiritual needs. You can help by saying this prayer. More is not expected.

 

Tell your spiritual director to be at peace, that everything is all right. The Lady will help him too.”

 

Priests and religious

“Now I am speaking to all priests and religious. All of you are apostles and handmaids of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.”

 

As the Lady is saying this, I see a great number of priests and religious standing before her. There is a sudden change in her bearing, her voice and her figure, which is otherwise very beautiful and lofty. It is as if the Lady is now standing there as a mother, an ordinary mother speaking to her children. She says,

 

“Now the Lady is not reproaching you. She knows she has human beings before her. It is hard for you in this time, but act in the Spirit of your Lord and Master Jesus Christ. He went before you as God, as Man.”

 

Unity among one another

“Be apostles among one another. For you are all one. Each of you must see to being an apostle. Be of one mind among one another. How can the community, the Church, be large and one if you are divided among one another? Be warned, and try to be honest and good to one another. No, the Lady is not reproaching you, but she has come, as a good mother, to warn the apostles of the Church about false prophets, about the wrong spirit.

 

Everyone pray the prayer which I have given. The Lady of All Nations has been sent specifically in this time in order to conquer spiritual decline, degeneration. You who are in spiritual need, come to the Lady of All Nations and she will help.”

 

Love embraces everything

“Next I tell the apostles of this time: be broad-minded, be mild. Be good to people. Condemn and judge just as the Lord Jesus Christ did. Understand your time, understand the fight. Be aware that the spirit is fighting. This is the time of the spirit. The fight is hard and difficult, but the True Spirit will triumph, provided that all of you cooperate. Church of Rome, seize your opportunity.

 

The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit now wants to make His Church large. Understand your doctrine well. It is necessary for the Lady to come and say all of this. Remember the first and greatest commandment: Love. That embraces everything.”

 

Amsterdam and the image. The Dominicans

“And now, lastly, I speak to N.[1]

 

I am content with you. The Lord asked three sacrifices of you. Now the Lady has come to ask something of you. This image was your gift to the Lady. This image, however, is destined for all people, for everyone who wants to come to the Lady of All Nations. Give them this image. It is the Lady’s wish that this image go to the Netherlands and in particular to Amsterdam. The Lady has her special reason for this. To Amsterdam, the city of the Miracle,[2] the Lady of All Nations, too, shall come there.

 

The Netherlands is on its way to degeneration. The Lady still wants to preserve this country from this, and that is why she is placing one foot upon it. She wanted the action to start from here, but she wants the image to be in Amsterdam.[3] Make this sacrifice. Hand it over to the Dominicans. Mark well, the offerings which are given will not be for the Dominicans alone, but for all the needs of the Church. The Lady of All Nations wants to entrust only the image to the care of the Dominicans. It is, however, no special privilege; it is destined for all peoples. Later I will come to speak about this  in particular.”

 

And now the Lady slowly goes away.

 

[1] Here the Lady says the name of the person who funded the painting of the Lady of All Nations.

[2]See Appendix I.

[3] The visionary received this message in Germany. The painting, which had been made in Germany, was still there (The first prayer cards were spread from Germany, too. See also Appendix II).


44th MESSAGE

 

December 8, 1952

 

Feast of the Immaculate Conception

 

Three thoughts in one act

“The message which I have come to bring today is destined for all peoples. I come in this time as the Coredemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate. In one act the Lord gave Mary these three titles, these three thoughts in one act. This new dogma will be much disputed. That is why I have given you the explanation of it.

 

The time is dawning. Tell the Pope’s Sacrista[1] to inform the Pope. He shall bring him the Lady of All Nations. The Pope shall prepare this dogma and submit it. Say that the time has come. The Holy Spirit must come over this world. The Holy Father shall not hesitate in his decisions, for he is the fighter. I shall give my sign.”

 

The time is drawing near

“I have said: this image shall precede. This image must go over the whole world. It is the interpretation and illustration of the new dogma. This is why I myself have given this image to the peoples. The prayer will remain until the end. The prayer which Mary as the Lady of All Nations has given to the world will have to be prayed in all churches. Use your modern means for this. Ask permission for this, and it will be granted you. Know well, the time is drawing near.”

 

The enemy of Christ

The Lady pauses for a moment, and then says very slowly and clearly,

 

“53.”

 

Then she looks at the globe on which she is standing and says,

 

“We are on the eve of great decisions. We are on the eve of heavy pressure. The enemy of the Lord Jesus Christ has worked slowly but surely. The posts are manned. His work is almost finished. Peoples, be warned. The spirit of untruth, lies and deceit is dragging many along. The eve is soon to fall.”

 

While the Lady says this, I feel heavy pressure coming over the world, and it is growing very dark there. It is as if everywhere the posts were manned––it seems to me as if with some sort of demons. I see that they are taking people with them. Whole groups of people are running after them and disappearing. I feel terror and menace coming over me.

 

The Lady continues to gaze before herself in silence, and then she says,

 

“Great menace is hanging over the world. The churches will be undermined even more.”

 

Unity in the true Holy Spirit

Again the Lady gazes before herself; then she says,

 

“Realize why I come as the Lady of All Nations. I come in order to bring all nations together in the Spirit, in the true Holy Spirit. People, learn to find the Holy Spirit. Strive after Righteousness, Truth and Love. Do not reject your brothers. Teach them to know the True Spirit. A burdensome task lies upon the people of this time. Authorities, parents, think about the youth.”

 

I then see large groups of young people. The Lady lets me feel that they are misguided, or not guided at all. It is as if they have gone adrift. The Lady looks very concernedly at all those young people and says,

 

“Bring them to the true Church, the community.

 

It was necessary for the Lord to send His Handmaid Mary in this time as the Lady of All Nations. I am warning the world, and that is why I am bringing this message.”

 

A good Mother

“Now once again I speak to the apostles and to all religious.”

 

I then see many priests standing there. The Lady looks very serious, like a concerned mother, and says,

 

“Listen carefully to a good Mother. She wants to help you too, in this time. Pray this prayer and invoke the intercession of the Lady of All Nations. And she will help you. Be righteous, sincere, and loving among one another. Work together for the great aim: making the Church large. Regular and secular clergy,[2] understand one another; work together for this one aim! After all, you are all the same.”

 

While the Lady is saying this I see two separated groups: on the one side, the secular clergy in black; and on the other side, all kinds of clergymen with different cassocks and habits. The Lady is standing between them, and then with her hands she brings those two groups together into one group.

 

Judging and condemning

Now for a long time the Lady gazes before herself in silence. Then she says very slowly and clearly,

 

“Know how to judge and condemn just as the Lord Jesus Christ did. The Lady of All Nations cannot repeat these things enough. Listen to my words, which I may give in this anxious time. Now I am speaking to all as I say: you do not know how serious and how difficult this time is.”

 

Help the Holy Father

And again the Lady pauses without saying anything, while gazing into the distance. Then she says,

 

“The Pope of Rome has the most burdensome task of all those who went before him.”

 

As she says this, I see many, many Popes of former times with all kinds of head-coverings: large miters, small miters and caps. The Lady says,

 

“People, help the Holy Father. Act according to his example. Follow the encyclicals. Let the world be filled by them, and then the spirit of untruth, lies and deceit will have no chance.”

 

Now I see the word ‘Encyclicals’ written in large letters above the people.

 

White and black

Next I see sheep around the Lady. They are grazing, tumbling about one another or looking up at the Lady with upturned heads. She looks at the sheep about her and then says,

 

“You who have your heads upturned, teach those who are grazing to lift up their heads.”

 

Then I see all those sheep changing into people. I see whole groups of white people, and lots of black people among them. As the Lady raises her finger, she says very seriously,

 

“You, white people, recognize the rights of black people. You shall support and help one another.

 

And the Lady of All Nations is here, everywhere, to help you. For she is the Coredemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate. This will be the final dogma. Work on it promptly and quickly. The Lady of All Nations promises to help the world if it acknowledges this title, if it invokes her under this title.

 

Make this message known. It is high time. Do not be afraid. I am helping.”

 

The new church

“This image will go to the Netherlands, to Amsterdam, and that in 53. It will be placed in the new church, the Lady of All Nations church. It will be entrusted to the care of the Dominicans and be brought temporarily to a chapel or church, the choice of which is left to the clergy and the donor of the painting. The new church, however, has to be built as soon as possible.”

 

Now the Lady suddenly lets me see the inside of a church.

 

“This image will be on the altar which is built on the gospel side.[3] On the other side, the epistle side, will be the altar of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.”

 

I see a sculpted image on the gospel side and one on the epistle side, too, but very vaguely, as if they were still veiled. Then I suddenly see a meadow before me, with trees. The Lady says,

 

“Where there is still grass, soon shall be the Lady of All Nations. Tell your bishop that it is the wish of the Lady of All Nations that this church be built there. The Dominican fathers shall care for the outspreading and for this image.”

 

As the Lady slowly goes away, she says,

 

“I shall grant great favors under this title.”

 

[1] The papal Sacrista was the person responsible for the papal liturgy in St. Peter’s. This office, which no longer exists, was held from 1951-1991 by a Dutchman, Msgr. P. van Lierde.

 

[2] See footnote 26.

 

[3] Before the Second Vatican Council’s liturgical reform, the left side of the sanctuary (when facing the altar) was called the gospel side, and the right the epistle side.


45th MESSAGE

 

March 20, 1953

 

The time has come

I see the Lady of All Nations standing before me. She says,

 

“Say that the time has now come. The time is here, the time in which the world shall know that I have come here as the Lady of All Nations. I want this to be made known to the world now. Tell this to the Pope’s Sacrista.[1] This is my message to him. You shall not fear anything. He shall read all the messages and pass them on to the Holy Father. Do not be afraid, child. You will get there. Have no fear. For I am the one bringing this message. The time has come.”

 

Now the Lady pauses for a long time and then says,

 

“53, that is the year of the Lady of All Nations.”

 

The daily Miracle

Now the Lady gazes before herself for a long time, and then she says,

 

“Before the Lord Jesus Christ returned to the Father, before the Sacrifice of the Cross began, the Lord Jesus Christ gave a daily Miracle to the peoples of the whole world.”

 

Now the Lady casts a searching glance over the globe and says very slowly and questioningly,

 

“How many are there …”

 

––and she pauses for a moment––

 

“who experience this great Miracle? They pass this great Miracle by. The daily Sacrifice must come again into the midst of this degenerate world.”

 

Pope Pius XII

Then it is as if the Lady is gazing into the distance, and she says,

 

“And now I speak to the Holy Father.”

 

Now I see Pope Pius XII before me in a room with a lot of papers around him. The Lady says,

 

“You have done a lot. Now the Lady of All Nations asks you once again to carry out everything that still needs to be done. He knows what I mean. The Holy Father shall prepare the Marian dogma of the Coredemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate. She will assist in this.”

 

The predictions of the Lady

The Lady waits again for a long time, gazing into the distance. Then she says,

 

“In order to prove that I am the Lady of All Nations, I said: great powers will fall; politico-economic struggle will arise; watch out for the false prophets; pay attention to the meteors; there will be disasters; there will be natural disasters; we are facing great decisions; we are facing heavy pressure.”

 

True peace

Now the Lady gazes before herself as if into a depth. Then she says very slowly and clearly,

 

“53.

 

Nations of Europe, unite! It is the Lady of All Nations who is calling this out to you. Not to defeat your enemy, but to win over your enemy. Just as you should be united politically, so must you be united in the true Holy Spirit. Heavy pressure is hanging over the world. Your enemy is lying in wait. Church of Rome, seize your opportunity. It is modern humanism, realism, socialism and communism which have the world in their grip.”

 

I then see the world with all those groups of people on it, and, so to speak, an enormous hand clasping it. The Lady says,

 

“Listen to the Lady, who wants to be your Mother. Pray, nations, that your sacrifice may find favor with the Lord. Pray, nations, that the true Holy Spirit may come. Pray, nations, that the Lady of All Nations may be your Advocate.”

 

Then the Lady says very slowly and clearly,

 

“And now the Lady of All Nations promises to grant true peace. But the nations, together with the Church––understand well––together with the Church, will have to pray my prayer in this year. Tell this to the Sacrista. Say that the time has now come. Great world events are still to come.”

 

The new church. The altars

Now the Lady pauses and it is as if she is changing her place. Then she says,

 

“Now follow me where I am going.”

 

It is as if I am going along a road together with the Lady. We arrive at a meadow and a few trees. I see the Lady standing as in a haze above that meadow. She says,

 

“You see me standing here in the meadow.”

 

Suddenly I recognize the meadow as a familiar piece of land at the Wandelweg,[2] near the place where we live.

 

“This is where the new church is going to be.”

 

It is as if I am entering that church with her. The Lady says,

 

“On the high altar the Sacrifice with the Cross, the daily Miracle.”

 

I now see the high altar. The Lady points at the tabernacle, which has a small crucifix on it. She says,

 

“At the same level, to the left, the gospel side, will be the altar of the Lady of All Nations. On the epistle side, the altar of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Notice well, at the same level as the Sacrifice.”

 

Now the Lady points again to the high altar, and I see the three altars adjoining on the same level, as if they were forming one large altar. Behind the side altars I see the images again, but vaguely and veiled.

 

Amsterdam, the place of the Sacrament

Then the Lady says,

 

“I have chosen the Dominican fathers for this. The donor shall place the image there. The image has to come to Amsterdam soon. I have chosen Amsterdam as the place of the Lady of All Nations. It is also the place of the Sacrament.[3] Understand all of this well.”

 

Next I see a Eucharistic procession. Among the many people participating I also see priests. One of these priests is walking in front with the Blessed Sacrament. The procession is coming from the old downtown, from the Begijnhof,[4] and going in the direction of the place the Lady showed me at the Wandelweg.

 

She will save the world

Then the Lady says,

 

“The outspreading shall go through the monasteries to all priests, to all peoples. Dominicans, be well aware of what you have in your hands.”

 

The Lady says the latter with emphasis.

 

“Your spiritual director shall see to it. Do not be afraid. It is Mary, the Lady of All Nations, who is bringing this message.”

 

The Lady pauses again for a moment. Then she says clearly and slowly,

 

“Under this title she will save the world.”

 

Then the Lady goes away very slowly.

 

[1] See footnote 52.

[2]This is the name of a footpath in Amsterdam at the time of the apparitions.

[3] The first apparition of the Lady of All Nations was on the 600th anniversary of the famous Eucharistic Miracle of Amsterdam. See Appendix I.

46th MESSAGE

 

May 10, 1953

 

Special message for the Pope

The Lady is standing before me. She says,

 

“I have come today to bring a special message. Ask the Holy Father[1] to pray the prayer––which Mary as Coredemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate, under the title ‘The Lady of All Nations’, has given to the world––and to lead the nations in praying it.

 

Tell him: apostle of the Lord Jesus Christ, teach your peoples this simple yet profound prayer. It is Mary, the Lady of All Nations, who asks this of you. You are the shepherd of the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ. Tend your sheep. Know well, great threats are hanging over the Church, are hanging over the world. Now the moment has come for you to speak of Mary as Coredemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate, under the title ‘The Lady of All Nations’. Why is Mary asking this of you? Because she has been sent by her Lord and Creator so that, under this title and through this prayer, she may deliver the world from a great world catastrophe. You know that Mary wishes to come as the Lady of All Nations. She is now asking that the people may hear this title from you, the Holy Father.

 

The Pope’s Sacrista[2] shall give this message, as the other ones, to the Holy Father. Through this prayer the Lady will save the world. I repeat this promise once more.”

 

Pray, nations

Now the Lady pauses for a long time, and I see the globe rotating under her feet. It is as if big, heavy clouds were hanging about it, and the Lady is looking at them. Then she says,

 

“Now I am speaking to all nations of the world.”

 

With great reverence the Lady now joins her hands, as if she were praying.

 

“Pray, nations, that your sacrifice may find favor with the Lord. Nations, turn back and try to find your simple faith. Acknowledge your Creator and be grateful. This is what humanity no longer knows.”

 

The false spirit

“The false spirit is ruling the world. Modern paganism, humanism, atheism, modern socialism and communism are ruling the world. Beware of the false prophets. The Lady of All Nations cannot repeat this enough, nor warn of it sufficiently. People, listen! It is the same Lord who is sending me to warn you, the same Lord who was once sacrificed for this modern humanity as well. You do not know what great powers are threatening this world. And now I am speaking not only of modern humanism, atheism, modern socialism and communism; there are yet quite different powers threatening this world.

 

Nations, search for truth. Nations, unite. Without your having known, the Lady has been coming for eight years already, in order to protect you from it.

 

53 is the year of the Lady of All Nations. 53 is the year in which she, under this title, has to be made known among the nations. 53 is the year in which great world events and world catastrophes will happen and threaten. This is why the Lady asks you to pray this prayer. Spread it out as much as possible.”

 

Amsterdam, the focal point

“Now I am speaking to your bishop: have the Lady of All Nations church built on the place I pointed out in Amsterdam.”

 

Then the Lady pauses for a moment, gazing into the distance. Then she says very clearly and slowly,

 

“Marian thought will become more prominent in this time. Amsterdam will become the focal point of the Lady of All Nations. There, through this image, the nations will become acquainted with the Lady of All Nations and, under this title, they will ask her to obtain unity, and unity among the nations. This image will precede the final Marian dogma. First this image shall come to Amsterdam. Your spiritual director and all who can take part shall see to the outspreading. It must become one large community, the guidance of which I give to the Dominican fathers. Let them be aware of what I am placing in their hands.”

 

The Lady is taking care of everything

Then the Lady pauses again. I tell her that I am afraid to pass on this message, but she smiles and says,

 

“Child, do not be afraid to make this message known. You are the instrument. The Lady is taking care of everything.”

 

And then I see the Lady going slowly away.

 

[1]As the Lady said this, the visionary saw a Pope, but not Pope Pius XII.

[2] See footnote 52.


47th MESSAGE

 

October 11, 1953

 

Degeneration, disaster and war

I see the Lady standing before me. She says,

 

“Mary, the Lady of All Nations, has been sent today in order once again to warn the world, the Church of Rome, and all peoples of degeneration, disaster and war. The world is living in degeneration. Disasters are yet to come. Peoples are still living in war.”

 

The Lady will bring peace

Then the Lady gazes before herself and says very slowly and clearly,

 

“The year 53, that is the year in which the Lady of All Nations must be brought into the world.”

 

For a long time the Lady remains silent, and then she says,

 

“The Lady of All Nations will be allowed to bring peace to the world. Yet she must be asked for it under this title. The Lady of All Nations will assist the Church of Rome. The Church of Rome, the community, shall invoke Mary, the Mother of the Lord Jesus Christ, under this new title, ‘The Lady of All Nations’. They shall pray my prayer against degeneration, disaster and war, and bring it among all nations. I shall help the Church of Rome, the community. The nations shall invoke me under this title.”

 

The Redeemer and the Coredemptrix of all nations

The Lady gazes before herself again for a long time. Then she says clearly and with emphasis,

 

“The Lord is the Redeemer of all nations. Mary, the Mother, was chosen from the beginning as Coredemptrix. She became Coredemptrix at the departure of the Lord Jesus Christ to the Father. She became Mediatrix and Advocate of all nations.”

 

The Lady pauses again for a moment and then says,

 

“Because Mary was destined as Coredemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate, she comes now in this time as the Lady of All Nations. Because Mary is given the title ‚Lady of All Nations’, she has come under this title to different places, to different countries.”

 

Destined for the world

Then the Lady gazes before herself and says,

 

“The Lady, who has to bring peace, came and gave her prayer in the country where Satan reigned.[1] The Lady, who comes to bring peace, gave her words through this instrument in a country in which peace has always been desired.[2] The Lady of All Nations is not destined for one country, for one place, but is destined for the world, the peoples.

 

This image, however, will go to Amsterdam, and that, at the end of 53. It will temporarily be brought to a chapel or church. Later it will be transferred to the Lady of All Nations church. My directions for this I have already given, and they are to be followed strictly. The Lady of All Nations will give a few more messages. Her time is nearly at an end.”

 

The crowning of Mary

Now the Lady pauses for a moment and then says very clearly and slowly,

 

“Then the great work begins: the crowning of Mary, the proclamation of the dogma of Coredemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate. First, however, let the Church and the nations invoke Mary under her new title and pray her prayer so that degeneration, disaster and war may be staved off from this world. If they do so, the nations of Europe will breathe a sigh of relief after 54.”

 

And now the Lady looks over the globe on which she is standing and says,

 

“Then the great worldwide task follows.”

 

Black and white sheep

Then the Lady looks about her, and, pointing at the sheep, she says,

 

“Look at my black sheep.”

 

I then see lots of black sheep. Separated from them I see white sheep on the opposite side. The Lady warns very seriously,

 

“White sheep, beware. The time is still here in which all of you can cooperate to achieve unity.”

 

As she says this, I see those two groups of sheep changing into two groups of people, black people and white people, standing apart from one another.

 

The crowning of the Mother of the Lord

Then the Lady says,

 

“Church of Rome, the Lady of All Nations will come only a few more times. She is still warning about the false prophets. Read carefully the messages the Lady brought you. Sacrista of the Pope,[3] pass these messages on.”

 

The Lady says this with great emphasis. Now the Lady raises her forefinger as if in warning and says,

 

“Holy Father,[4] you have a great task to accomplish before you are taken up among Us. The Lady tells you once again: carry through with the plans that you have worked out. See to the final dogma, the crowning of the Mother of the Lord Jesus Christ, the Coredemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate. In 54 you are to bring this new title among the nations. See to those countries in which the Lord Jesus Christ is being persecuted.

 

This can and will become a great world action, above which Mary will stand as the Lady of All Nations. I am helping; I shall be allowed to help the world and peoples through my Lord.”

 

Mary takes responsibility

Then her forefinger goes down, and the Lady is standing in her usual position again. She pauses for a moment and then says,

 

“And now I speak to your bishop: you should understand why I speak to the Holy Father and the Sacrista. This action is not for one country; this action is for all nations.”

 

While the Lady says this, I first see our country, the Netherlands, lying before me. The Lady then shakes her head ‘no’. Next I see the whole world before me, and on it all those nations. The Lady says,

 

“You, however, help in your country for the spreading of this prayer and for the spreading of these messages. Mary takes responsibility for it. You know she said that the painting is to be entrusted to the care of the Dominican Fathers. You know she said that the offerings are to be used not only for the Dominicans but for all the needs of the Church as well. Bring Mary as the Lady of All Nations into your country. The great world action will begin from there. The time has now come and it is very short. Mary is standing here as the Mother who wants to help her children. Ask and she will help you under this new title.”

 

Now the Lady slowly disappears.

 

[1]The prayer was given to the visionary while she was staying in Germany.

[2] The Netherlands.

[3] See Footnote 52.

[4] As the Lady said this, the visionary saw very clearly Pope Pius XII standing before her.


48th MESSAGE

 

December 3, 1953

 

The powers of hell

As I am praying before the image, the Lady suddenly comes to life. It is as if she steps out of the painting, and then I see her as usual with an immense light around her. I hear her say, clearly and earnestly,

 

“Do not be afraid. It was my intention that this image still be here at the inauguration of the Marian year. After that it will go to Amsterdam.”[1]

 

Now the Lady pauses for a moment, gazing before herself. Then I feel something terribly horrid coming around the Lady. She says,

 

“The powers of hell will break loose.”

 

Next it is as if I heard thunder and terrible noise about her. But then the Lady smiles and says,

 

“They will not, however, defeat the Lady of All Nations.”

 

As the Lady says these words, an immensely bright light comes all about her, such that it hurts my eyes.

 

[1]The painting of the Lady of All Nations was still in Germany when the visionary received this message at the beginning of the new Church year. By the end of December 1953, however, it was transferred to Amsterdam and temporarily placed in the rectory of St. Thomas Church, a Dominican church on Rijn Street (see also Appendix II). The Marian year of 1954 was proclaimed by Pope Pius XII in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the proclamation of the dogma of the Immaculate Conception.


49th MESSAGE

 

April 4, 1954

 

Old thoughts

I see the Lady standing there with a very serious look on her face. She says to me,

 

“Here I am again. Listen carefully! From the beginning, the Handmaid of the Lord was chosen to be the Coredemptrix. Tell your theologians that they can find everything in their books.”

 

Now I see an old library with lots of books. The Lady points this out to me. She pauses for a moment and smiles to herself as if inwardly amused. Nearly whispering, she says,

 

“I am not bringing a new doctrine. I am now bringing old thoughts.”

 

The Immaculate Conception

The Lady pauses again and then says,

 

“Because Mary is Coredemptrix, she is also Mediatrix, she is also Advocate. Not only because she is the Mother of the Lord Jesus Christ, but––and mark this well––because she is the Immaculate Conception. Theologians, I ask you: do you still have objections to this dogma? You will be able to find these words and thoughts. I ask you to work for this dogma. No, do not be afraid! A fight will break out. They, the others, will attack you; but the simplicity of this dogma lies in these last thoughts which Mary, the Lady of All Nations, gives you today. Fight for and ask for this dogma. It is the crowning of your Lady.”

 

The Lady says all of this with emphasis on almost every word.

 

The Lady and the Holy Spirit - The Apostles

Then she gazes before herself for a long time. She has a peculiar expression on her face; it is as if she looks like Mary of long ago, when she was still in the world. Then she says,

 

“The Lady, the Handmaid of the Lord, was chosen and made fruitful by the Holy Spirit.”

 

Now the Lady pauses and I see a haze, a radiant veil coming about her. Then she says, very slowly,

 

“The Lady was chosen. She was also to be present when the Holy Spirit was received. The Holy Spirit had to come over the Apostles,”

 

and, raising her forefinger, the Lady says with emphasis,

 

“the first theologians! For this reason, the Lord wanted His Mother to be present there. His Mother, the Lady of All Nations, at the departure of her Son became the Lady of All Nations, the Coredemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate in the presence of one Apostle, one theologian as witness. For he had to care for the Mother. She had to care for her Apostles.”

 

As she says these last words, I first see someone from former times standing beside her, a young man in a long garment. Then that person is gone and I see several priests standing about her.

 

Keystone of Marian thought

Now the Lady looks at me and says with emphasis,

 

“This is the last time that the Lady will speak about this dogma. She will return, but for other matters. Tell your theologians, however, that now they have everything in their hands. Now they have to fulfill the will of the Lord Jesus Christ. This dogma must come as a keystone of Marian thought. Tell the theologians that the Lady of All Nations wants to see this fulfilled.”

 

The Pope - The Sacrista

Now the Lady spreads out her arms as if she were holding them protectively over something. Then I see the Holy Father, Pope Pius XII. The Lady says,

 

“I will assist the Holy Father. Mark my words well. He will receive the strength yet to prepare everything. Many changes are to come.”

 

Now I clearly see the Lady standing above St. Peter’s, and everything there seems to be spinning around. The Lady says,

 

“The Holy Father is to carry out his lofty plan as quickly as he can! Tell him that the Lady of All Nations has helped him and will stand by him with the strength he needs. The Holy Father knows everything already. The Lady will give him the strength he needs.”

 

Now the Lady looks very compassionately at Pope Pius XII. Very softly and almost pityingly she says,

 

“He knows what he has.”

 

Then the Lady brings her hands back to their usual position and says with emphasis,

 

“Tell the Sacrista that everything will turn out fine. He shall act and carry through with this cause, in the way the Lady asks of him.”

 

Message for the bishop

Now the Lady looks at me again and smiles. Moving her finger to and fro, she says,

 

“Now for your bishop. You shall ask him to make known the prayer and the messages.”

 

I then see a bishop. I do not know which one. I say to the Lady, “He won’t do it; I am so frightened about having to say that.” The Lady looks at me compassionately, and she says, smiling,

 

“Do not be afraid, child, but simply ask this. Tell him that the time has now come. He can give consent that it is my prayer. He can give consent to the building of the church. The signs are in my words––tell him that. Tell him also that the Lady wants her image to be placed in public now, and with it the words that the prayer comes from his Mother Mary, who wants to be his Lady of All Nations, too. Tell him: Mary is taking full responsibility for this.

 

Later I will give more signs, when my words have ceased. I shall return and speak to the nations. All of this had to precede.”

 

The hand of Satan

Then the Lady gazes before herself very seriously. Around the globe on which she is standing, it is as if I would see heavy clouds going by, while the globe is spinning around. The Lady points at that globe and says very sadly,

 

“Look at the world. Mark well what I am going to tell you.”

 

Now the Lady holds up her right hand, opened towards me. I see a large die lying in it. Then the Lady moves that hand as if she were shaking it over the world. Suddenly the scene changes. I now see a very different hand, more like a claw, which leaves me with a horrid, ghastly impression. In the claw, too, there is a die. The Lady says,

 

“Satan’s hand is passing over the whole world, holding a die. Do you know, Church, Community, what this means? Satan is still the prince of this world. He holds on to everything he can. That is why the Lady of All Nations had to come now, in this time. For she is the Immaculate Conception and thus the Coredemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate. These three thoughts in one. Theologians, do you hear this well?”

 

And it is as if the Lady would put three parts of something into one another, into one whole. Then she says,

 

“The Lady had to bring her prayer now over this satanic world. For the Holy Spirit is still to come over the peoples. Understand this message well. Pray my prayer then, peoples, that the Holy Spirit shall really and truly come.”

 

At this last sentence the Lady held up her hands, folded, as if to show people how they should pray.

 

Sacrifice and fight

Then the Lady pauses again, and she looks at me very seriously, yet with a smile. She says,

 

“And you, child, you are afraid to pass on all of this? Then the Lady tells you: let them come with all their needs, spiritual and bodily. The Lady is here and she will bring them back and help them. Make a sacrifice of your life. Tell your spiritual director that the Lord always chooses the weak for His exalted plans. He can be at ease.”

 

Now the Lady gazes into the distance and says,

 

“And to all the others: work on; fight for the Lady of All Nations, who must come in this time. I will help them.

 

I will return on May 31st.”

 

And then the Lady goes away very slowly.


50th MESSAGE

 

May 31, 1954

 

Feast of Mary, Mediatrix of All Grace

 

Ask for this dogma

“Here I am again. The Coredemptrix, 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 for and ask for this dogma. You are to supplicate the Holy Father for this dogma. The Lord Jesus Christ has done great things and will give all of you even more in this time, in this twentieth century.”

 

On this date

“On this date the Coredemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate will receive her official title as ‘The Lady of All Nations.’ Mark well, these three thoughts in one act. These three.”

 

Now the Lady shows me three fingers and moves her other hand around herself, and then it is as if a haze, a radiant veil, is coming about her.

 

“And now I let your theologians see these three thoughts, these three thoughts in one act. I say this twice because there are some who want only one thought. The Holy Father will agree to the former. You, however, shall help him to get there. Understand all of this well.”

 

The day of the Lady’s coronation

Now, all of a sudden, it is as if I were standing with the Lady above the dome of a big church. As we enter, I hear the Lady say,

 

“I am taking you there. Relate what I let you see and hear.”

 

We are now in a very big church, in St. Peter’s. I see lots of cardinals and bishops gathered there. Then the Pope enters. It is a Pope I do not know. He is being carried in a kind of chair, but later he continues on foot. People cheer; the choir begins to sing. Now the Holy Father is announcing something in a language I do not understand, while holding up two fingers.

 

All at once the Lady stands on the globe again. She smiles and says,

 

“Child, thus have I let you see what is the will of the Lord Jesus Christ. This day will become the coronation of His Mother, the Lady of All Nations, who once was Mary.”

 

The Lady stayed with her Apostles

Now the Lady remains standing without saying anything, as she gazes far into the distance. This lasts a while and then she says,

 

“And the Lady stayed with her Apostles until the Spirit came.”

 

While she says this, that peculiar change comes over her face again; it is as if she were speaking from out of former times. I see priests and other people standing about her, as she says,

 

“So also may the Lady come to her apostles and nations throughout the whole world, in order to bring them the Holy Spirit again and anew.

 

For before great decisions, the true Holy Spirit must always be invoked.”

 

Now the Lady pauses again for a moment, and then she says very strikingly, in a low voice,

 

“And Mary stayed with her Apostles.”

 

Now I see the Lady seated in a hall, surrounded by people from former times wearing long garments.

 

All nations will call me blessed

Then the Lady looks in front of herself, as if into the distance, and says very clearly and slowly,

 

“My prophecy, ‘From now onwards all nations will call me blessed’, will be fulfilled more than ever before, when the dogma is proclaimed. The Holy Father knows his time. He will prepare and accomplish this before he is taken up among Us.

 

On this day all nations will call me blessed. I have come on this day so that they”

 

––and the Lady points about her––

 

“will bear witness that the Lady of All Nations really and truly said this.”

 

The sign of the Lady of All Nations

“I said: Church of Rome, I will come only a few more times. By this the Lady of All Nations wanted to say to you: only a few more times before the proclamation of the dogma. Mark this well. And this is the sign: under this title, the Lady of All Nations may come every year among her children, among her apostles, among all nations.”

 

The word, the voice of their mother

“I have come to the world in various ways.”

 

Now the Lady looks at the globe and shakes her head with a sad look on her face.

 

“Now I ask: has this had any effect? The Lord Jesus Christ wants to grant yet another great favor to the world, and that is the word, the voice of their mother, the Lady of All Nations. By means of this instrument in a small country which is on a downward slope, the Lady of All Nations will give her motherly admonitions and consolations each year. Later on this will cease.

 

Child, they will believe you. I am here. I shall assist and help you. The image must be placed in public. Ask this of your bishop. He shall consent to having the image brought forth.[1] He shall consent to the building of the church, the one I showed you. Everyone shall fight for this. Tell that to your spiritual director. I will help both him and the others, too. It is my prayer––tell that to your bishop. He shall consent to this. No, child, do not be afraid.”

 

Peace will follow the dogma

Now the Lady gazes before herself again, and it takes a while before she continues,

 

“From now onwards all nations will call me blessed.

 

The Lady of All Nations wishes for unity in the true Holy Spirit. The world is covered by a false spirit, by Satan. Once the dogma, the final dogma in Marian history, has been proclaimed, the Lady of All Nations will grant peace, true peace, to the world. The nations, however, must pray my prayer, together with the Church. They shall know that the Lady of All Nations has come as Coredemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate. So be it.

 

I will return, as I promised today, but in public.”

 

This frightens me terribly, but the Lady says,

 

“No, child, do not be afraid. So be it.”

 

Kneel down humbly before your Creator

The Lady pauses for a long time, and then she starts speaking again,

 

“Now I speak to the nations of the entire world: apostles and nations, kneel down before your Lord and Creator and be grateful. This world’s science has made people forget gratitude. They no longer know their Creator. Nations, be warned. Kneel down humbly before your Creator.”

 

The Lady says this with immense reverence and devotion. She falls to her knees and bows her head so deeply that it nearly touches the ground.

 

“Implore His mercy and He is merciful. Doesn’t He give you proof of it in this time? May the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit be with you all the days of your life. May the Father and the Son bring you the Lady of All Nations.”

 

All people

“No matter who or what you are, I may be for you: the Mother, the Lady of All Nations.”

 

Then the Lady gazes far into the distance, as if she were looking for people. It is as if she really wants to draw all people towards her, people who belong to our Church, people who do not belong to our Church and even people who do not belong to any church at all.

 

“See to it, nations, that those who are in need––and by this I also mean spiritual need––are brought to the Lady. Work among the others with my prayer.”

 

The Lady pauses for a moment and then says,

 

“The Lady will return every year.”

 

And then she slowly goes away.

 

[1]Though initially refused, permission was later given to have the painting of the Lady of All Nations placed in public. On December 19, 1954, the painting was solemnly installed at St. Thomas Church on Rijn Street. See also Appendix II


51st MESSAGE

 

May 31, 1955

 

Feast of the Queenship of Mary[1]

 

The Lady appears in public

In the morning, during Holy Mass, I suddenly hear the voice of the Lady saying,

 

“I will come today. Go to the chapel.”

 

In the evening there is adoration, and the church is very crowded. During the fifth glorious mystery[2] I hear the voice of the Lady saying again,

 

“Go to the chapel.”

 

However, since the church is so crowded, I don’t dare go, and I remain seated. A bright light comes from behind, from out of the chapel, and goes through the church. I am terribly frightened by this. Now, all of a sudden, I hear the voice of the Lady very clearly, right by my ear. I hear the Lady say,

 

“Get up!”

 

It sounds so commanding that I rise with a start and walk towards the back. I feel as if I am floating. When I arrive at the chapel where the painting is, I see a sea of light there. I kneel down on the stone floor. Out of that light the Lady suddenly comes forward, more beautiful than I have ever seen her. The Lady says,

 

“Pray my prayer.”

 

But I am so deeply touched and impressed by everything that I can’t speak. Interiorly I tell this to the Lady. Then she smiles and says for the second time,

 

“Pray my prayer.”

 

And then she herself starts to recite it,

 

“Lord Jesus Christ ...”

 

Suddenly I recover my voice, and I am again able to repeat her words. Then she lets me continue praying.

 

The Lady addresses the nations

After this, the Lady pauses for a moment and gazes before herself. Then she starts to speak,

 

“I am standing here as the Lady of All Nations, the Coredemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate.”

 

The Lady pauses again for a moment, gazing forward. Then she says, as if speaking over my head to an invisible crowd,

 

“I promised to come today, May 31. The Mother, the Lady of All Nations, is standing here before you. Today she wants to address the nations. Listen carefully to my words.

 

I am coming to warn the nations. Satan is not yet expelled. Nations, be warned of false prophets. The Lady of All Nations may come every year. She promised to give her sign. This sign has now been given. I said: I will return, but in public.”

 

As the Lady points at me, she says,

 

“Very well then, nations, this instrument hears the voice of the Lady so that she may bring you her word.”

 

She will defeat Satan

The Lady again pauses for a moment, and then she says,

 

“Satan is not yet expelled. The Lady of All Nations may now come in order to expel Satan. She comes to announce the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit will then come over this earth. You, however, shall pray my prayer which I gave to the world. Every day and every moment you shall think of the prayer which the Lady of All Nations gave to this world in this time. How strongly Satan is ruling, God alone knows. He now sends His Mother, the Lady of All Nations, to you, to all nations. She will defeat Satan, as has been foretold. She will place her feet upon Satan’s head.”

 

The Trinity

Then the Lady says with great concern,

 

“Peoples, do not let yourselves be taken in by the false prophets; listen only to Him, to God, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. For the same Father is the same Son. The same Father and Son is the same Holy Spirit.”

 

The Lady says this very slowly.

 

God will hear His Mother

Now the Lady pauses for a long time, and then she says,

 

“You will go through a great deal yet, in this century. You, nations of this time, know that you are under the protection of the Lady of All Nations. Invoke her as Advocate; ask her to stave off all disasters. Ask her to banish degeneration from this world. From degeneration comes disaster. From degeneration comes war. Through my prayer you shall ask that this be staved off from the world. You do not know how great and how important this prayer is before God. He will hear His Mother, as she wants to be your Advocate.”

 

Trust in your Mother

Again the Lady pauses for a long time. Then she says, very concernedly,

 

“Great events are going to happen. You young people, you will experience great changes. It is the Lady of All Nations telling you this. She will protect you. She will stand in this time ... in this time, in this world, above all nations as the Lady. A time of great inventions is to come. There will be alarming inventions, such that even your shepherds will be astonished and say: we are at a loss. At that time mark well these words which the Lady said to you on May 31st. The Father knows and allows everything that is going to happen in the world.

 

Understand, the Holy Spirit is nearer than ever. The Holy Spirit will only come when you pray for it. From the beginning, He already was. Now, however, the time has come.

 

The world no longer knows where to turn. Very well then, peoples, trust in your Mother, for she has never forsaken her children. She may come under this new title: ‘Coredemptrix, Mediatrix, Advocate.’”

 

The Lady will give her blessing

“Ask your Holy Father to proclaim this dogma which the Lady is requesting.”

 

Now, all of a sudden, I see the Lady join her hands in a graceful gesture. She stops speaking, and, with her eyes, she draws my attention to what is happening in the distance. At that moment I recover my natural hearing and I hear the altar bells for the blessing with the Blessed Sacrament. With a tender, devout expression on her face, the Lady looks in the direction of the altar. It is as if a radiant light comes over her and as if she receives the blessing together with all of us. After the blessing, the Lady calmly continues with her message.

 

“Once the dogma has been proclaimed, the Lady of All Nations will grant her blessing, the Lady of All Nations will grant peace. She will help you when this dogma has been proclaimed.”

 

Back to the Sacrifice

“Great things are at hand. The world is degenerating. Nations, remember the daily Miracle that the Lord Jesus Christ granted you! He gave it to you so that you could experience it every day. Do you realize what you are actually missing?

 

Nations, I said: I will come to admonish the nations and to give consolation to my children, the apostles and all nations. Very well then, the Lady has now come.

 

You shall bring your children to the Lord Jesus Christ. You shall teach them how to pray again, just as the Lady of All Nations teaches you to pray her prayer. The Lady asks you, parents: teach your children this prayer. Bring your children back to the Sacrifice; lead your nations back to the Sacrifice. And when I say ‘the nations’, I mean my white and especially my black sheep, standing about me. Think, white people, about the black nations! They must be brought to the Lord Jesus Christ; they must be brought to the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.”

 

The Kingdom of God

“Once 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. The Kingdom of God is nearer than ever. Understand these words well.

 

It is really and truly the Mother, the Lady of All Nations, who is telling you this. My admonitions: do not listen to false prophets; listen only to your shepherds, to your ministers, to the voice of your conscience––to a Higher Being. And this I say for those who do not belong to the true Church.”

 

Now the Lady raises her finger and says with emphasis,

 

“You, people of the Church of Rome, be aware of your great, great fortune. Realize what it means to belong to the Church of Rome. Do you really act accordingly?”

 

The nations united around her throne

“Your Mother, the Lady of All Nations, is allowed to come to you once a year under this new title. Later on this will cease. Understand these words well when I say: see to it that every year the nations are assembled around this throne, before this image.”

 

While the Lady is still standing in that beautiful light, I suddenly see the chapel with the painting of the Lady. Around it large groups of people are gathering, many, many foreign nations. The Lady says,

 

“This is the great favor that Mary, Miriam, or the Lady of All Nations, may grant to the world.”

 

You are responsible

“She will return, I said. She will speak to her apostles. But the Lady will speak first to you, nations. Help your apostles; do not make it so difficult for them. Bring your children again as an offering before the Lord. Apostles of the Lord Jesus Christ, your Lady understands you; your Lady will help you in all difficulties, your Lady will assist you. In her name, invoke the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, who will come now more than ever! The Kingdom of God is nearer than ever, I said. Nations, do you realize what that is going to mean? Do you realize, nations, that you are responsible? You, the high-ups of this world, do not mislead your little ones, do not mislead the least of my children. You are responsible before your Lord Jesus Christ.”

 

And once again the Lady says with emphasis,

 

“You are responsible!”

 

The Lady begs you

“I just said: alarming inventions will be made. God allows this; but you peoples, you can see to it that it does not result in disaster. You peoples, I beg you ... the Lady begs you; hear this well. Never has the Mother of God begged you ...”

 

Now the Lady pauses again and then says,

 

“So that you do not arrive at alarming things, nations, the Lady begs you now, today: ask the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit to protect His people, to bring His people to unity once again. People have to attain unity, to be one, and over them: the Lady of All Nations. One community, peoples; here I am stressing these words: one community.”

 

One community

“Think of the future.”

 

And now it is as if the Lady is smiling as she says,

 

“No, the Lady does not say: think of your material future. Understand well why I may come on this great day. This great day was chosen by the Lord Jesus Christ for the Lady of All Nations. She may bring her nations to unity. She may gather her nations into one large community. All nations into one Community, that is what this world, this time––as I have repeatedly announced––must see to. In private I have spoken repeatedly about this time. Very well then, nations, this time has come. Satan is not yet expelled, but you have to see to that, you peoples of the Church of Rome.”

 

Now the Lady raises her finger again in warning and says seriously,

 

“Remember your sacraments––they still exist. By your example, nations, bring others to Him, to the daily Miracle, to the daily Sacrifice.”

 

Your Mother went before you

“And thus the words, ‘From now onwards all nations will call me blessed’, will be fulfilled. Today this message of the Lady of All Nations goes throughout the world.

 

I said: I will give consolation. Nations, your Mother knows life, your Mother knows sorrow, your Mother knows the Cross. Everything you go through in this life is a passage that your Mother, the Lady of All Nations, went before you. She went this road before you.”

 

The Lady pauses again for a moment and then says slowly,

 

“But she went up to the Father; she returned to her Son. Nations, you also go up to the Father by your way of the Cross; you also go up to the Son by your way of the Cross. The Holy Spirit will help you. Invoke Him in this time. I cannot say this enough to the world: go to the Holy Spirit in this time!”

 

The Lady says the latter very slowly and with emphasis.

 

Return to the community

“You will be helped. Return to the Church. Return to the community. Care for my other sheep––those who are wandering around grazing there. Do you know what that means: wandering around grazing?”

 

The Lady says the latter, too, with great emphasis.

 

“Care especially for unity among the nations. That is what the Lady of All Nations came to tell you today. She will not forget you. You cannot yet understand my words. The signs, I said, are in my words.”

 

Consoling promise

“Your Mother will tell you something consoling. When the time of the Lord Jesus Christ is at hand, you will notice that false prophets, war, discord, dissension are going to disappear. Now the time is dawning. The Lady of All Nations is telling you this.”

 

 

Then the Lady slowly goes away.

 

[1] In his encyclical Ad Coeli Reginam of October 11, 1954, Pope Pius XII officially gave Mary the title ‘Queen of Heaven and Earth’. The liturgical celebration of this feast was set for May 31st. Until then, several church provinces celebrated the Feast of Mary Mediatrix of All Graces on this day. Then, by a decree made on March 21, 1969, the Feast of the Queenship of Mary was transferred to August 22nd. At the same time, the Feast of the Visitation of Mary was transferred from July 2nd  to May 31st.

52nd MESSAGE

 

May 31, 1956

 

Feast of Corpus Christi

 

The visionary in inner conflict

In the morning, at the end of Holy Mass in St. Thomas Church, I suddenly hear the Lady’s voice saying, urgently and clearly:

 

“I will come today. Ask your bishop to bring the image back into the church before the arrival of the third hour.”[1]

 

I answer, “I won’t do that. They won’t believe me, anyway.” Then the Lady says, very strictly,

 

“Do what I tell you!”[2]

 

In the afternoon I am praying the Rosary at home together with my family. During the last glorious mystery, I suddenly hear the voice of the Lady again. She says,

 

“Go to the Wandelweg.”[3]

 

I am startled and say, “I won’t do that. I have to obey Fr. Frehe; I promised on my honor.[4] Just do something else, because you have to help us.”

 

In the evening, at about half past eight, I hear the Lady’s voice anew. She says,

 

“I am coming today, anyway.”

 

I ask, “But where?” The Lady answers,

 

“Right here.[5] Let them know, and tell your pastor.”

 

I say, “I won’t do that, because I am not allowed to do anything without Fr. Frehe’s permission.”

 

So I didn’t do it.

 

For the sake of the promise

After adoration in the church, some acquaintances stop by to tell how it went and how beautiful it was.[6]

 

At exactly ten o’clock, the light suddenly appears in the room. From the bright light the Lady comes forth very slowly. As the Lady is standing there, she says,

 

“Today I have come for the sake of these here.”

 

She then points at the circle of people sitting around us.

 

“Truly I tell you, the Lord Jesus Christ has sent the Lady of All Nations here to you for the sake of the promise. Tell this to your bishop; tell this to your spiritual director.”

 

Obedience

Now the Lady looks at me and smiles at me while saying,

 

“You did well. Obedience had to come first.”

 

Here the Lady pauses for a moment, and then she says,

 

“I said: go to the Wandelweg.”

 

The Lady then smiles at me and says,

 

“You obeyed. So be it. The Lord demanded this.”

 

Now the Lady pauses for a moment and then says, as she gazes into the distance,

 

“For the sake of the city––they should understand well how the Lady means this–– for the sake of the city the Lady wanted this obedience.”

 

The site of the new church

Now the Lady waits a long time. Then she says, while looking around herself,

 

“Now, in the presence of these witnesses, the Lady will show you where and how the Lady of All Nations church is going to be built.”

 

Again the Lady says nothing for a long time. Then it is as if all of a sudden we are standing in a grassy field. Now the Lady lets me see very clearly where the new church has to be built. She points to the left and says,

 

“Look carefully. Not over there, but there.”

 

And now she points to the right.

 

“I am showing it to you now. Tell it to the others later.”

 

Now I see the place clearly: a grassy field with trees and a teahouse, on Southern Wandelweg. Once again the Lady says,

 

“Look carefully.”

 

She pauses, and then continues,

 

“They will have difficulties. It is a large piece of land, later to be surrounded by a fair-sized part of town.”

 

Then I actually see that large piece of land surrounded by new houses and buildings. A stretch of the present-day dike is gone.

 

The church seen from the outside

Suddenly I see a large church on the site the Lady had pointed out to me. It is a majestic church on a large square, a very extraordinary church, the likes of which we do not know; but in it one recognizes features of all different types of churches. The back side looks Eastern, and the front side is more Western. The church is built of yellowish-beige natural stone. The light green domes are very striking––a large one with a smaller one on either side. The Lady points that out to me and says,

 

“You see three domes on this church, a large one and, on either side, a smaller one.”

 

The green of the domes contrasts wonderfully with the yellowish-beige color of the church walls. These walls have large windows; just beneath the domes, too, there are windows. On the large dome there is a cross.

 

The front porch

The entrance to the church is very majestic, imposing and grand. Steps lead up to the large, open front porch. This front porch has four enormous pillars on the front side, ornamented at the top and bottom. The pillars are not smooth, but as if ribbed from top to bottom. The roof over the entrance, supported by these pillars, has a protruding edge with some kind of sculpture or relief.

 

The inside of the church

Then the Lady says very solemnly,

 

“We are now entering the house of the Lord.”

 

Suddenly I am with the Lady inside the church. It is a large, inviting church. All the windows are stained-glass; they are of deep, warm colors––predominantly a sort of Eastern red and blue––colors you do not find in our churches. As I walk with the Lady through the church, it occurs to me that the floor slopes slightly downward, as in an amphitheater. It is also striking that everything in the church is placed in a semicircle. Everything on and in the church is round. In the front of the church I see a raised plateau, a kind of platform of enormous dimensions. It has steps leading up to it, along the curve. The pews are also arranged in a curve. I see communion rails in front of the platform.

 

The altars

On the platform there are three altars, arranged in a semicircle. The Lady points at the altar in the middle and says,

 

“In the middle the Cross, the daily Miracle, the altar of the Sacrifice of the Cross.”

 

At this the Lady points at a low tabernacle with a small crucifix on top of it. Then she points at the altar on the epistle side.[7] With her hands folded, she says very solemnly and devoutly,

 

“The altar of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.”

 

Now, pointing at the altar on the gospel side, she says,

 

“On this side the altar of the Lady of All Nations. Look carefully: at the same level. It looks like one single semicircle; one large semicircle and a smaller one on either side.”

 

Although I see three altars, it is as if they are united as one single altar, one single semicircle, and yet three semicircles.

 

The images behind the altars

Then the Lady says,

 

“The altar of the Sacrifice in the middle. Behind it is the image of the Last Supper.”

 

Now the Lady shows me clearly the images behind the three altars. Behind the central altar I see an image of the Last Supper covering nearly the entire length of the curved back wall. The Christ is a beautiful and dignified figure. In front of Him is a chalice. In his hands He is holding a Host; it is as if He were breaking the Host. Around Him are the Apostles, half-reclining at the table. Then the Lady goes with me to the epistle side and says,

 

“There you see the Father, seated upon the globe.”

 

On the back wall of the epistle side, I see an image of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. The figure representing the Father is seated upon the globe. In his right hand there is a Cross. Above all this there is a dove, which is emitting rays in all directions. The Lady says,

 

“With the Cross in His hand, He is overshadowed by the Holy Spirit, represented in the form of a dove emitting rays in all directions.”

 

The altar of the Lady - The separate chapel

Now the Lady points at the gospel side and says,

 

“The altar of the Lady depicts me as I come.”

 

I see an image of the Lady of All Nations standing on the globe, with the Cross behind her and sheep around the globe. All three images are sculpted in a type of dark brown wood, the image of the Lady, too. This surprises me greatly. The Lady seems to notice this. She smiles and says,

 

“You do not see the present-day image.”

 

She means the painting. Then she signals me to follow her. We go to the back, on the gospel side. In the back of the church, a little more to the side, I see the painting of the Lady, hanging in a small chapel. The Lady smiles and says,

 

“There, a little more to the side, is the painting, separate in a separate chapel. The Lord Jesus Christ willed it so.”

 

Celibacy

When we are outside of the chapel again, the Lady says,

 

“Furthermore, I would like to tell you that the Lady tested you.”

 

All of a sudden she makes the Sign of the Cross on her lips with her thumb and says,

 

“Do not repeat what I am going to say now.”

 

Then she says,

 

“Tell the Sacrista of the Holy Father to pass on the following: celibacy is still the great strength of the Church. There are people who want this to be changed. Only in great exceptions. Say this. He will understand me. The dogma of Coredemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate has to be proclaimed before 1960.”

 

The image in public

Then the Lady says,[8]

 

“She will not come to the place where the church will be. Ask that the image may again be placed in public.”

 

Now I see in a flash the chapel in St. Thomas Church.

 

“Later it will be transferred to the house of the Lord Jesus Christ.”

 

Then I again see the Lady’s church which will have to be built in the future.

 

The Lady waits a moment and then says,

 

“Now I was speaking for all nations, too. Say this. When the image is brought back, the Lady will give her blessing.”

 

The miracle of Cana

Now the Lady waits a moment before continuing,

 

“I still have an answer to give. By the will of the Lord Jesus Christ, the Lady of All Nations spoke and speaks where He is present.”

 

Again the Lady waits a moment, and then says,

 

“For was it not the Lord Jesus Christ Himself who waited with His great miracle”

 

––and now the Lady says quietly and with emphasis––

 

“of changing water into wine, until his Mother had spoken? He intended to work His miracle, but waited until His Mother spoke. Do you understand this? This is my reply today for those who could not understand that the Lady, on May 31, 1955, appeared in St. Thomas Church.”[9]

 

Again the Lady pauses for a moment. She looks very sadly at the people who came to visit us after adoration,[10] and says,

 

“The Lady says this for those poor, mistaken people, too.[11] This thought shall help them to understand the relationship of the Lady with their Lord. Pass everything on well.”

 

Now the Lady sadly looks before herself and says,

 

“I had wanted to bring a serious and joyous message. Ask that the image be brought back into public.”

 

Then the Lady goes away slowly, very slowly.

 

[1] The previous year, on July 10, 1955, the Bishop of Haarlem-Amsterdam withdrew his permission, and so the pastor of St. Thomas Church silently removed the painting of the Lady from the chapel and placed it in the rectory. It was later that the bishop wrote an official letter stating that he withdrew the permission he had previously given for having the painting of the Lady in the chapel at St. Thomas Church, pending inquiry into the authenticity of the apparitions of the Lady of All Nations. See also Appendix II.

[2] The visionary had been obliged to promise her spiritual director not to go to St. Thomas’s again that day. At the visionary’s insistence, her director granted permission that someone take the Lady’s message to the bishop on paper. The bishop informed the visionary that she should follow her spiritual director’s instructions.

[3] See footnote 56.

[4] Despite the visionary’s entreaty to be allowed to comply with the Lady’s request, her spiritual director refused. She had to remain at home.

[5] ‘Right here’ means Ida’s home. The Lady appeared there, since the visionary was not allowed to leave home that day.

[6] On that day the Rosary was prayed in the church at half past two. The Lady’s prayer was prayed at the end of each decade. Nearly five-hundred people were present praying all day, up to the beginning of adoration in the evening. Since Ida had not been allowed to attend, some of them stopped by her house for a visit afterwards.

[7] See footnote 54.

[8]Here the visionary again starts repeating the Lady’s words.

[9] On that day the Lady had appeared during exposition of the Blessed Sacrament. Some people had taken offense at this.

[10] See footnote 74.

[11]Some of the people present wanted to use the messages for their own purposes.


53rd MESSAGE[1]

 

May 31, 1957

 

 

Lord, Your will be done

My spiritual director had told me that I wasn’t allowed to go to St. Thomas Church that morning, nor to adoration in the evening. In addition, I was not allowed to call him that day. So I went to Holy Mass at Peace Church. All of sudden, just before Holy Communion, I clearly heard the voice of the Lady saying,

 

“Today do what I tell you.”

 

I was startled by that and said inwardly, “But I promised to obey Fr. Frehe.” Yet I added humbly, “But Lord, Your will be done.”

 

That day I had to go somewhere by train. I just went to the station. I took my seat in the train and started praying the Rosary, as was my habit. All of a sudden I heard the voice of the Lady startlingly clear, as a command, saying,

 

“Go back, you have done your duty!”

 

Before I knew it, I was out of the train and standing on the platform. At the same moment the train left. I thought, what have I done? Now I haven’t obeyed. What now? All of a sudden the Lady’s voice resounded very loudly over the platform,

 

“Three o’clock at the chapel!”

 

It sounded like an order. I went back home then. Since Fr. Frehe hadn’t forbidden me to go to the church in the afternoon, I went to St. Thomas Church that afternoon. At first I didn’t dare go in, but suddenly it was as if someone were pushing me, as if some kind of wind or force were carrying me into the church.

 

The last message to be given in public

When I entered the church, people were praying the Rosary by the chapel. I prayed with them from the back of the church. Then they prayed the twelve articles of the Creed. At the words ‘who was conceived by the Holy Spirit’, I suddenly saw the light appear at the Lady altar. The light moved very slowly from the Lady altar, alongside the main altar, then alongside the St. Joseph altar where it halted for a moment, and then along the side of the church towards the chapel. It was as if a figure were floating along in that light. I stood up and went to the chapel because the Lady, as it were, beckoned me. When I entered the chapel, I saw the Lady slowly emerging from the light. She said to me,

 

“Pray the prayer.”

 

Then she herself began to pray the prayer, very softly and devoutly, praying it together with me. At the end, however, I heard her say ‘your Advocate’ instead of ‘our Advocate’. At this she moved her head forward and looked at me very intently. This confused me, such that I seemed to have skipped the words ‚who once was Mary’, and repeated her words, ‘your Advocate’.

 

Then the Lady said,

 

“Today I have come here in order to bring the last message given in public. Do not be afraid, child. It is the Lady of All Nations who says all of this.”

 

She paused a moment and then said,

 

“You did well.”

 

Ask for the dogma

All of a sudden the Lady again made the Sign of the Cross on her lips with her thumb,[2] and said,

 

“Go to the Holy Father and tell him everything. Ask for his blessing for the prayer. Ask for the dogma.”

 

As I inwardly responded, “Oh, Lady, how can you say something like that! You know that I will never get there”, the Lady said softly,

 

“Through the Sacrista.”

 

Obedience and free will

Then the Lady looked sadly before herself and said,[3]

 

“I had wanted to bring a serious and joyous message. I showed all nations that, regarding obedience and free will, free will had to come first.”

 

The Paraclete

“Now I would first like to give an answer to all those who asked you for a sign.”

 

At this the Lady shook her head compassionately.

 

“The Lady says to all of them: my signs are in my words. You of little faith! You are like a child insisting upon fireworks, while you do not see the true light and the true fire.”

 

At this the Lady smiled in compassion.

 

“You seek and seek in ‘para-this’ and ‘para-that’. Concerning this as well, the Lady of All Nations will give you an answer.”

 

And with a voice that resounded powerfully through the church, the Lady said,

 

“It is the Paraclete who brings all of this about.”

 

I didn’t understand the word ‘Paraclete’, and I tried to make this clear to the Lady by shaking my head and shrugging my shoulders. She smiled and pointed about herself. Then I saw all kinds of priests standing about her. While pointing at those priests, the Lady said,

 

“You know what the Lady means.”[4]

 

Then she continued,

 

“He is the salt, He is the water, He is the light, He is the power by which the Lady is overshadowed. He proceeded from the Father and the Son. He pervaded the Lady of All Nations with His power. Thus she can and she may distribute grace to you.”

 

Again I saw a haze enveloping the Lady, as before when she spoke about the Holy Spirit.

 

The sacraments

“Then spread my prayer, the prayer of the Lord. Ask whether the image may be returned here for the time being. Child, do not be afraid. I am the one asking this. Ask for the dogma. And you, all nations, through the hands of the Lady let yourselves be brought to the Lord, be brought to your sacraments.”

 

She put great emphasis on the word ‘sacraments’, and she shook her head as if she would say, “What’s going on there?” She had a very peculiar look on her face, clearly showing that she found it not at all in order. Then she said,

 

“You behave so strangely with them. I know, the Lady of All Nations knows, what this time is like for Christians, and that is why she has been allowed to come for twelve years, to warn you, to help you, to bring you back to the Lord Jesus Christ. This year you experienced how strong the power of Satan can, can be. The Lady of All Nations, who is the Bride of the Lord, who is the Queen of the King, who has now received this title from her Lord, she, through her intercession, has still, still been able to save the world.”

 

At this the Lady raised a finger in warning.

 

Heaven

“Nations, listen to everything I have said. Truly, it is worth the trouble to leave the world.”

 

It was as if the Lady meant this in a double sense.

 

“Surely you all have to go to heaven!”

 

This the Lady said very clearly and explicitly. It was as if she drew aside a veil and I experienced a very extraordinary state, a heavenly, a supernatural state. I saw something tremendous, quite impossible to describe. It was as if heaven would open; it was so beautiful.

 

“The Lord redeemed all of you. You who have gone astray, come back. The Lady is waiting for you.”

 

At this the Lady made an inviting gesture with her arms, so as to gather all people.

 

“She will help you. She will bring you back.”

 

Celibacy

Again the Lady made the Sign of the Cross on her lips with her thumb.[5] Then she said,

 

“Go to the Holy Father and tell him that I said: the time has now arrived in which the dogma can be proclaimed. I shall come back in private for the Church and for priests, at the time which the Lord shall determine. Say that celibacy is endangered from within. But in spite of everything, the Holy Father shall uphold it.”

 

When I shook my head and said that I didn’t dare say this, the Lady said somewhat angrily,

 

“I order you to say this!”

 

So I nodded ‘yes’. Next the Lady said,

 

“If they do what I have said, I will assist the peoples, all of them, even the most primitive, and I will be allowed to bring true peace.”

 

The Lady said this with great emphasis.

 

The foretaste of eternal life

Then the Lady said,[6] while gazing before herself with a heavenly expression on her face,

 

“Before the Lord Jesus Christ died his natural death, before the Lord Jesus Christ went up to the Father, before the Lord Jesus Christ appeared in the world, coming among people again,”

 

––It was as if the Lady were saying this by way of explanation, for I was shaking my head, not knowing what to make of it––

 

“He gave you the great Mystery, the great Miracle of every day, every hour, every minute. He gave Himself. No, nations, not an idea.”

 

At this she shook her head vehemently.

 

“No, nations, listen to what He said, not 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 everyday. Take this, do this. He gives you the foretaste, the foretaste of eternal life.”

 

Again she drew aside that veil from before my eyes, and once more I entered the same heavenly state.

 

“This, nations, is what the Lady, the Coredemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate, wanted to tell you today, for the last time in public.”

 

Then I saw the Lady go away very slowly.

 

[1] Concerning this message, the visionary wrote a letter to her spiritual director, Fr. Frehe. See Appendix III.

[2] Indicating that the visionary should not repeat the words to follow. From here until footnote 82, the visionary does not repeat the Lady’s words, and they are thus neither heard nor written by the person present to transcribe the messages (usually Ida’s sister). Ida herself will relate them at a later time.

[3]Here the visionary again starts repeating the Lady’s words.

[4] ‘Paraclete’ denotes the Holy Spirit. This Greek word, used particularly in the Gospel of St. John, means helper, comforter, counselor, and advocate.

54th MESSAGE[1]

 

February 19, 1958

 

Ash Wednesday

 

Prediction of the death of Pope Pius XII

Last night I again woke up with a start, because, at exactly three o’clock, I heard someone call me. I saw the light again and heard the voice of the Lady saying,

 

“Here I am again. The peace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with you. You did well. Of your own free will you chose to bring the message to your spiritual director. This obedience will bear good fruit, which you will experience in a short time. Your spiritual director knows his duty. You may be at ease.

 

I shall make an announcement that you may not tell anyone about, including the Sacrista and your spiritual director. When it has happened, you may tell them that the Lady told it to you at this time. The announcement is:

 

Listen. This Holy Father, Pope Pius XII, will be taken up among Us at the beginning of October of this year. The Lady of All Nations, the Coredemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate, will lead him to eternal joy.”[2]

 

I was shocked at this announcement and hardly dared to believe it. The Lady said,

 

“Do not be frightened, child. His successor will proclaim the dogma.”

 

I thanked the Lady and she said very solemnly,

 

“Amen.”

 

[1]See Appendix IV for what happened during the week preceding this message.

[2] At the request of her spiritual director, the visionary typed out this message, put it in a sealed envelope, and gave it to him for safe-keeping. She herself kept a carbon copy. Immediately following the death of Pope Pius XII, she informed her spiritual director of the content of this message and had him read the copy. Immediately afterwards, the unopened sealed original was sent to the Sacrista of the Pope. See also Appendix IV, Fr. Frehe’s letter of October 14, 1958.


55th MESSAGE

 

May 31, 1958

 

A heavenly experience

We were sitting together and talking when all at once I saw a bright light appear in the adjacent room. I did not see the Lady. Then it was as if a veil were lifted from before my eyes, and I experienced a heavenly, a supernatural state. I had the feeling that someone was present, someone tremendously mighty, great and pure. As I knelt down, high-pitched, exquisite music sounded in my ears, and the room was completely filled with light. It shone so brightly that I was compelled to fold my hands on my breast and bow deeply. I didn’t dare look into it––nor could I. But suddenly I did look; I cannot possibly express what I saw. It was something heavenly, if, in all humility, I may say so. Then it was as if it were concealed by a veil, and I could no longer see it. And then I saw the Lady, but far away. She looked so kind and dear. She spoke to me very softly. I couldn’t repeat after her at all; I had no voice. The first part she said without pausing, while looking at me. I thought, if only I could remember it all. I think the Lady understood me, because she smiled and repeated the first part. Then I nodded ‘yes’. The Lady said,

 

“Through the Lord to the Lady; through the Lady of All Nations to the Lord of All Nations. This contact will continue. Warn the clergy of false doctrines, particularly concerning the Eucharist. Pass this on to the Sacrista. Say that the Lady asks him to take you to the pontiff. Again, pray much for good priests and vocations, and that peoples search their hearts. But ...”

 

In all tranquility I shall return to Him

Suddenly the Lady stopped and made a gesture with her head as if she wanted to say: listen, repeat after me. All at once I recovered my voice. The Lady said,

 

“In all tranquility I came. In all tranquility I shall return to Him who sent me.”

 

As she said this, she moved upwards very slowly, further and further away. I felt: she is leaving me. This made me very sad, and I began to cry. The Lady said,

 

“Do not be sad. I will not leave you orphans. He, the Comforter and Helper, will come.”

 

Build here one community

Then the Lady slowly disappeared, and I heard her say,

 

“Listen, follow the light.”

 

All at once the light went out of the room. I sought it in the adjacent room, but it went ahead of me to the front door of our house. I went after it, into the street. It went ahead of me to the Wandelweg. All of a sudden it stood still. I was searching the ground when I heard the voice say,

 

“What are you looking for?”

 

Then, between two clouds, I saw the Lady with Cross, globe and sheep. She herself was standing in the clear, blue sky. As she moved upwards very slowly, I heard her say,

 

“This is the place of my return to Him. Build here one community for all nations.”

 

Then a large, luminous cloud moved across her, and I saw her no more. But while she was still going up in a haze, there appeared in place of her––I cannot express it otherwise––a large Holy Host, radiant with light, very large. Three beams of light emanated from the Holy Host: in the center a beam of magnificent colors; to both the left and right, a beam of wonderful, brilliant light. At the end of the right one there was a Cross, and at the end of the left one, a Dove, but glorified, spiritual I would say. Then everything went away very slowly.[1]

 

[1] In connection with this message, the visionary wrote a letter to Fr. Frehe, her spiritual director. See Appendix V.


56th MESSAGE

 

May 31, 1959

 

The Lady crowned in heavenly glory

It was almost three o’clock Sunday afternoon. We were all gathered in the living room. From our window I suddenly saw something happening in the air. Startled, I said to my relatives, “Look there!” as I pointed at the sky. We all went over to the window. Suddenly I saw the light, a tremendous light over the Wandelweg. I could not look into it and covered my eyes with my hands. The others did not see it and asked what was happening. I knelt down and folded my hands. Yet I was compelled to look at it. While looking at it, I thought that the sky was being torn apart. What I saw was really a tearing apart of the sky.

 

Then I suddenly saw the Lady in all her glory. I cannot possibly describe this overwhelming, heavenly, glorious sight. Never before had I seen her like that. I did not see the sheep, globe and Cross; I only saw the Lady, but with an immense splendor of light and glory about her. Then I suddenly had to look at her head, and I saw that now she was wearing a crown. This I had never seen before. I didn’t see a crown with diamonds or of gold, yet I knew that it was a crown, sparkling with light on all sides, more beautiful than the most beautiful diamond crown. Moreover, the Lady herself was one blaze of light. Again, it was something heavenly, glorious! I cannot explain it any better.

 

Do penance

Then, below this glorious scene, I saw a piece of thin, blue sky and, beneath it, the upper part of the globe. It was completely black. This gave me a terribly sad and ghastly impression. Then I saw the Lady waving her finger continuously to and fro and shaking her head––as if in disapproval and warning––at that black world. I heard,

 

“Do penance.”

 

Then I saw something very peculiar. From out of the dark, black globe I saw all sorts of human heads emerging. I saw them rising slowly upward, then their bodies, and finally I saw those people whole and entire, standing upon the round hemisphere. While looking at them, I thought: how is it possible that there are so many different races and sorts of people? As I looked on in amazement at all those people, I saw the Lady extending her hands in blessing over those people, and then she no longer looked so sad. I heard,

 

“Make reparation to Him.”

 

The Lord appears

Suddenly the Lady was gone, and in place of her I saw a Host. It was an incredibly large Host. Thus I could clearly see that it was a normal Host, one like those we see in church––a wafer. Then, in front of the Host, there appeared a large chalice. I saw that the chalice was of splendid gold. It toppled over, with the opening towards me. From the chalice, then, I saw thick streams of blood flowing forth. All of that blood fell upon the globe and streamed down from the earth; it was a very distressing sight; it made me feel quite sick, all the while streams and streams of blood. This went on for quite a while.

 

But suddenly all of that was transformed and everything became a brilliant, dazzling Holy Host. Such a brilliant light emanated from it that I covered my eyes with my hands. I could not look into it and feared to go blind. But inwardly I was forced to look at it. The Holy Host seemed to be like white fire. In its center there was a little opening or hollow––I cannot describe it any better. Then all of a sudden the Host seemed to burst open and I saw a floating figure emerging from it, a Person, so mighty, so majestic––forgive me, I cannot convey the majesty and might which was emanating from this figure. It was too overwhelming! I hardly dared to look. When I did look at that mighty and majestic Figure, I felt within me very strongly: it is the Lord. I felt myself so terribly small compared to that indescribable majesty. A kind of cloth was wrapped around His body––over His shoulders and then slanting down around His body. His face was shining incredibly. His feet were placed one upon the other, as you sometimes see on a crucifix. On His feet I saw a scar, from which beams of light were coming forth. His hands were a bit raised, one hand somewhat higher than the other. In His hands, too, I saw some kind of scars. From them as well, great beams of light were coming forth. I saw one Person, but all the while I kept thinking: and yet there are two. But when I looked, I saw only one. Still, it kept going through my head: and yet there are two.

 

Then all at once an indescribable light came from out of their midst, and in it I saw, coming forth from their midst––I cannot express it otherwise––a Dove going down to the globe as fast as an arrow. Going ahead of that dove was an indescribable light and, behind it, an enormous bunch of rays. That light was so immense that, once again, I couldn’t look into it and had to cover my eyes with my hands. My eyes were hurting from it. Again, however, I was forced to look. What glory and what power were shining forth from it all: that floating Figure, majestic, mighty, grand; and then that light with the now brightly illuminated world. Then I heard,

 

“Whoever eats and drinks Me acquires eternal life and receives the True Spirit.”

 

Farewell

After I had been allowed to behold this for quite some time, the Lady came back again in all her glory, exactly as at the beginning. Now, however, I very clearly saw the difference between her glory, if I may express it this way, and the great power and majesty of the floating Figure. It was as if the Lady were standing in the shadow of the Lord––that was the feeling which came over me.

 

Now the Lady looked happy. She looked at me full of love, and I heard her say very softly, from afar,

 

“Farewell.”

 

And then very softly she added,

 

“See you in Heaven.”

 

This made me so sad that I could no longer repeat her last words. I began to cry, for I felt that this was her departure, for good.

 

Very slowly I saw the Lady go away, and then the light.[1]

 

[1] On June 24, 1959, it was explained to the visionary in a dream that this vision is a representation of the Lady’s prayer. See also Appendix VI.

 


 

Remaining Contact: Eucharistic Experiences of Jesus

 

July 17th, 1958.

As I was in church this morning and followed the preparations for Holy Mass, something very strange happened to my eyes. I naturally had them open, as I was watching the altar. And yet it was as though my eyes suddenly jumped open. I cannot express myself better. I also felt it physically. Then I saw the priest and the altar disappear as in a mist in the background. A very bright light now appeared before my eyes. In that light I saw three figures linked with each other in a semi circle. These were of extreme whiteness- white fire I would almost call it. It startled me, for I could not look at it. I placed my hands before my eyes and really thought, “I am going blind”. Yet interiorly I was compelled to keep on looking so I did. Then something very peculiar took place: the three figures expanded slowly, becoming larger and larger, until they formed a semi circle. After this they joined together to form a circle. The centre still appeared as a dark patch. Subsequently, the figures spread out towards the centre. Now only a tiny spot remained dark. Suddenly that spot too was filled, so that all at once a very great sphere of white fire stood before my eyes. I cannot express it other wise. I looked at it; all of a sudden I recognised the Sacred Host, such as I had seen it on May 31st 1958, but without shafts of rays. I could scarcely look at it and a most peculiar state came over me. Thus it stayed before my eyes and I kept gazing. It was white fire-magnificent! Then it seemed as if the Sacred Host slowly faded away and the High Altar as well as the Lady Altar were bathed in a beautiful light. That lasted for a moment. Suddenly, everything appeared again as usual, as it had been when I entered the church. The priest meanwhile had arrived at the Epistle.

 

11th March, 1959

Immediately after the Credo I saw the Altar bathed in an immensely bright light. The priest and the Alter retreated into the background and I saw nothing but light. From it emerged, in the air above the altar, three figures, framed by a faint circular outline, just as I had seen them they year before on July 17th, 1958 in the same place. Everything now proceeded as then: the light hurt and I thought I would be blinded. The shock was so great that I thought my heart would stop. again I saw these three figures expanding until they formed a circle. Then they filled up in the central space, leaving only one tiny dark spot. But now came the difference: suddenly I saw something burst asunder within that dark spot and it was as if I saw in that great shining circle two heavenly, divine figures (forgive my resumption) and yet it was but one figure with out spread arms. I kept on seeing two, whereas it was just one. It was something so brilliant and heavenly that I hardly dared to look and yet I had to. The figure was floating. I would say, and fully ablaze of light, but I could not see any source of light. Thus I sat gazing at it. Then it seemed as though something was breaking away from the two figures and all at once I saw a Dove emerge from one of the hands, wholly of light and emitting rays. On the other side, a Cross appeared at shoulder level. All that remained before me, I do not know for how long. Then all of a sudden everything became a ball or a circle of white fire and I saw-or better still, I thought I saw again-a shining Sacred Host. (When I left the church, everything in the street looked dark to me, although the sun was shining and the sky was a radiant blue. My eyes were still paining me from the light. Once again I really did see that with my eyes. And what I felt at that moment, I cannot describe. I was in fear and dread and yet not really-simply overawed) After the vision, the church bore its usual look again I saw the priest and the altar as before. Just then the bell rang for Holy Communion.

 

30th August, 1959

I received Holy Communion and returned to my place. All of a sudden the Sacred Host began to grow on my tongue, becoming larger and thicker. It seemed to expand and then suddenly, it became alive. Truly! Strange though it might sound, I felt it as a living object. It must seem irreverently expressed; yet it may help people to form some idea of it when I say, “It resembled a living fish in its movements.” I wanted to take it out of my mouth in order to see what it was; but of course reverence prevented me from doing so. As may be imagined, I got a terrible shock-it was awful! Never having experienced anything like it, I could not make out what was happening to me. But at the same time a completely different perception arose in me, something so delightful. I may well say, something heavenly. It was a state such as I had never known Then suddenly I heard. “Be not afraid...I am the Lord, your Creator....the Lord Jesus Christ ....the Giver of Life” (the dots indicate a silence) “Just as I live in you now, I want to and shall live among all nations.” After this the Sacred Host began to grow smaller and thinner; it resumed its usual form and I was able to consume it. Subsequently, I did not go to church for a whole week-excepting Sunday, of course-in order to check up on myself. Nothing out of the ordinary took place.

 

9th September, 1959

However, on September 9th I had the same experience again and at the end I was told “Do pass this on.” Since then it has not happened again, although I have been to Holy Communion daily.

 

11th October, 1959

Today, however, October 11, 1959, it was repeated. The same experience, the same extra-ordinary state. Today the words were “I am your Lord Jesus Christ..the Giver of Life....Fear nothing. Through the Will of the Father and the power of the Giver of Life, I shall dwell among all nations, just as I now dwell in you...Do understand the Daily-Wonder. Do what she, who was sent by Me-the Lady of All Nations-has told you to do....Pass this on”. Then the Sacred Host decreased in size; I felt it dissolve on my tongue, becoming smaller and smaller, until nothing solid was left to consume. Only A liquid remained, which had a wonderful kind of taste, not to be compared with anything else.

 

18th October, 1959.

As I walked back from the Communion rails, it seemed as though the Sacred Host was no longer on my tongue. Instead I felt as if flows of water were entering my mouth. They kept streaming, I cannot express it otherwise. It had a very wonderful taste, wholly unknown to us. An exceptional state came over me and I heard: “I am the living Water. Warn My apostles, so that errors may be obviated.” All the while fresh water seemed to be flowing through my mouth. This lasted for a considerable time.

 

31st January, 1960

When I had received Holy Communion and was back at my place, it was all at once as though the muscles of my whole body began to pull and contract, which caused me excruciating pains. Suddenly the sweat of death seemed to settle on my brow. It became ice cold and I was ready to swoon. I knew however, that in reality I was not ill. Strangely enough, I was conscious of that! I remained sitting quietly, holding my hands before my eyes and of a sudden a most wonderful state came over me, such as I had experienced a few times before. It was as though I was being lifted up and floated somewhere. Then for a good while I remained wrapped in a heavenly state (if I may be permitted to say so). When everything had gone the Sacred Host was still unconsumed on my tongue.

 

25th March, 1960, Annunciation Day

During Holy Communion the Sacred Host suddenly broke into very small crumbs upon my tongue. All at once I heard: “I am the Seed, which was plunged into Her womb.” Upon this the crumbs assumed a delicious taste and became fluid. Then I heard “I am the Living Water” Then I was startled by a violent, burning sensation on my tongue and I heard, “Fear not. I am the eternal Fire that was kindled in Her womb for all nations.” Then the Sacred Host dissolved on my tongue.

 

May 31st, 1960, Queenship of Our Lady

When I went to Holy Communion, I heard, “I am the Lord, your Creator, the Risen Lord, the True Wisdom.” Then the Sacred Host became alive on my tongue and I heard “ I am the Fish; you are the salt of the earth. I am the Living Water.” (At this, flows of fresh water, with exceptional delicious taste, began pouring through my mouth). “I am the living Manna.” (Now that water changed back into the Sacred Host.) Then all at once the Sacred Host began to burn so violently on my tongue, that it seemed as if the latter would be consumed by a fire within. I got a shock and heard, “Fear nothing. I am the Fire that was kindled in the womb of the Lady. You, priests, do not let this fire go out; but carry it with you in your hearts, in your hands and on your lips; so that it may continue to burn and live among all nations. For they must all attain eternal life” “pass this on; the signs have been given. Do what the Lady told you to do.” Thus all at once the Sacred Host was back in its usual form on my tongue and I consumed it. One the same day, at 3:15 in the afternoon, I suddenly saw the light on the ‘Wandelweg’; but after a few minutes it vanished again.

 

30th October 1960, Feast of Christ the King

When I went to Holy Communion, I felt the sacred Host fall upon my tongue in three layers. From my palate one host at a time fell upon my tongue and became one with the other. When that was over, the Sacred Host became very thick and large again and began to move, as I had experienced several times before. All at once the Sacred Host dissolved and I tasted flows of delicious water. Then suddenly everything had gone. I heard no words.

 

15th January, 1961

When I went to Holy Communion and the Sacred Host became alive again on my tongue I heard the words,  “It is I....the Living Christ..the Substance..I am present in the Bread, which you, priests should distribute among all nations-and the Kingdom of God is in your midst.”

 

26th February, 1961

Today, I experienced the very same things as on January 15th. Precisely the same words were spoken. In addition, however, I heard at the end, “Pass this on”.

 

25th March, 1961, Annunciation Day

At Communion everything proceeded again as related above. The Sacred Host fell as it were in three layers upon my tongue, where they joined into one and became alive. Subsequently, it melted into a delicious water. Then I heard,  “Walk along the way I have shown you.  May peace be with you!” And suddenly everything had gone. It was childish, I know, but I could not help weeping, as all at once, I felt such a dreadful void and loneliness encompass me, exactly as on the occasion of the Lady’s last visit, only much worse.

 

31st May, 1962

On my way to Holy Communion I saw the light upon the altar. It stayed for a while and disappeared again.

 

31st May, 1962

As I went to Holy Communion, the Sacred Host suddenly began to move and later changed into flows of water in my mouth. The light too, was present during that time. There was no message. Afterwards everything went back to normal.

 

23rd May, 1963, Ascension Day

During Holy Communion, I heard, not with my ears but interiorly, “Hold yourself in readiness for May 31st.”

 

31st May, 1963

After Holy Communion when I had gone back to my place, the Sacred Host all at once began to move again and I also heard a word (not with my ears) The word was “Transubstantiation....” and upon this the Sacred Host began to be active again on my tongue to a greater extent than before. Suddenly I heard, “I wanted to give them another chance.” After this, I saw (not with my eyes as formerly) lips with a finger across and I heard “Do not tell anybody before it has happened...” Here the voice ceased for a moment, after which I heard, “Montini”. Then I tasted flows of water and the Sacred Host was gone.

 

May 31st 1964

While receiving Holy Communion I heard “Go speak with your Bishop.” I got a shock and said inwardly : Oh! he won’t believe me in any case!” The voice repeated with urgency, “Go and speak with him.” It sounded like a command. The Sacred Host became active again on my tongue. Only at the end of Holy Mass it melted away to a delicious liquid.

 

31st May 1965

During Holy Communion the Sacred Host became active again on my tongue. I saw a pair of lips with a finger across. The finger made the sign of the Cross at those lips. Then I heard the voice say, “Thus it is alright.” There was a pause and after that I heard, “Go to Pope Paul and tell him in the name of the Lady of All Nations: this is the last warning before the end of the Council. The Church of Rome is in danger of a schism. “Warn your Priests. Let them put a stop to those false theories about the Eucharist, sacraments, doctrine, priesthood, marriage and family planning. They are being led astray by the spirit of untruth-by Satan-and confused by the ideas of modernism. Divine teaching and laws are valid for all time and newly applicable to every period. “Keep the primacy in your own hands. Grasp the meaning of these my words; the Church of Rome must remain the Church of Rome. “Do what the Lord has demanded of you-in sending Me, the Lady or Mother of All Nations. You are the Pope who has been selected for this work. Let the nations say the prayer before my picture and the Holy Spirit will come! A Church or a people without a Mother is like a body without a soul. This period is now coming at an end.” There followed a pause after which I heard. “Go and take the following message to Your Bishop in person; give back to the faithful their devotion to the Lady of All Nations and grant permission for the building of the Church I have shown.” Then the finger was withdrawn from her lips and the whole vision vanished from my eyes. Then again I heard, “Li
