The Story of Our Lady of the Pillar
After Pentecost, the 12 Apostles dispersed to preach the Gospel all over the world. St. James the Greater, on one of his apostolic journeys, preached in the Iberian Peninsula in modern-day Spain.


St. James was discouraged that the pagans of that land were not responding to the Gospel and converting to Christianity. He had only a handful of converts to show for his labors. In the face of what he thought was failure in his mission, he prayed with his disciples by the Ebro river in modern day Zaragoza.

To bring him consolation, while she was still alive and living in Jerusalem, Our Lady appeared to him and his disciples atop a pillar of jasper stone carried by angels, while holding a smaller wooden statue of herself holding the Christ Child. The date was October 12 in the year 40 AD.




La Virgen de Guadalupe

Official Catholic accounts state that the Virgin Mary appeared four times before Juan Diego and once more before Juan Diego’s uncle. According to these accounts the first apparition occurred on the morning of December 9, 1531, when a native Mexican peasant named Juan Diego saw a vision of a maiden at a place called the Hill of Tepeyac, which would become part of Villa de Guadalupe, a suburb of Mexico City. Speaking to Juan Diego in his native Nahuatl language (the language of the Aztec empire).
The maiden identified herself as the Virgin Mary, “mother of the very true deity” and asked for a church to be built at that site in her honor.





Our Lady of Lourdes
February 11, 1858

On 11 February 1858, Soubirous went with her sister Toinette and neighbor Jeanne Abadie to collect some firewood and bones in order to buy some bread. After taking off her shoes and stockings to wade through the water near the Grotto of Massabielle, she said she heard the sound of two gusts of wind (coups de vent)* but the trees and bushes nearby did not move. A wild rose in a natural niche in the grotto, however, did move.

“…I came back towards the grotto and started taking off my stockings. I had hardly taken off the first stocking when I heard a sound like a gust of wind. Then I turned my head towards the meadow. I saw the trees quite still: I went on taking off my stockings. I heard the same sound again. As I raised my head to look at the grotto, I saw a lady dressed in white, wearing a white dress, a blue girdle and a yellow rose on each foot, the same color as the chain of her rosary; the beads of the rosary were white….From the niche, or rather the dark alcove behind it, came a dazzling light…”.

Our Lady of Medjugorje

Statue of Virgin Mary at Podbrdo, place of apparition
Since 1981, when six local children said they had seen visions of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Medjugorje has become an unapproved destination of Catholic pilgrimage.
“Our Lady of Medjugorje” is the title given to the apparition by those who believe that Mary, mother of Jesus, has been appearing from 24 June 1981 until today to six children, now adults, in Medjugorje (then part of communist Yugoslavia). “Most Blessed Virgin Mary”, “Queen of Peace” and “Mother of God” are words the apparition has allegedly introduced herself with.
The visionary Marija Lunetti (Pavlović) claims to receive messages from the Virgin Mary on the twenty-fifth of every month, while Mirjana Soldo (Dragičević) reports receiving messages on the second of the month.
The messages attributed to Our Lady of Medjugorje have a strong following among Catholics worldwide.
Medjugorje has become one of the most popular pilgrimage sites for Catholics in the world and has turned into Europe’s third most important apparition site, where each year more than 1 million people visit. It has been estimated that 30 million pilgrims have come to Medjugorje since the reputed apparitions began in 1981. Many have reported visual phenomena including the sun spinning in the sky or changing color and figures such as hearts and crosses around the sun. Some visitors have suffered eye damage while seeking to experience such phenomena.
Jesuit Father Robert Faricy has written about his own experience of such phenomena, saying,
“Yet I have seen rosaries which have changed color, and I have looked directly at the sun in Medjugorje and have seen it seem to spin and turn different colors. It would be easier to report that it is just hysteria except that I would then have to accuse myself of being hysterical, which I was not and am not.”

Expect a Miracle!
A Poem from Mrs. Scarrot
It took me years to realize exactly who is the speaker in this poem when I recognized that “the pun on the sun” should refer to HER “Son” in the second instance.


Thoughts on a Grey Day

I thank my God for perfect love and peace
I’ll hold her tight, as always, mine forever
Love; love. So great, so divine
Trees — the grey day has changed everything
It’s beautiful, just beautiful, so beautiful
This first grey day is ours
My loving child, by grace of God, we live my child and love
I crawl to my knees, my dear love; will you promise to kiss
My perfect healing hands and fingers and make a promise to me?
You will always obey my each command and never, ever fail me
You’ll be mine forevermore

The Sun is here, my love
My love, my sun — our sun complete
God bless our perfect, perfect grey day
With trees so bare — so bare! but oh, so beautiful; so beautiful
The grey-blue sky; the world is here!
Ours, just. . . just ours. . . our own
Hold us tight
I am yours, just a dream, and go on dreaming
May this joy of ours never, ever cease
My love, my love; pregnant sweet
Love is tender
