A Book on Apparitions of the Virgin Mary
by The M+G+R Foundation
Introduction and Purpose of This Work
Why yet another book on Marian Apparitions ? Many talk, write and read about
Marian Apparitions but, are we really understanding the purpose and urgency of
these Apparitions and Messages? The obvious answer is: "NO !" If we were, we
would be acting on them, and if would be acting on them the world would not
continue to slip into darkness.
This work attempts to review, in a schematic format, some key Marian
Apparitions highlighting the following elements:
1. When and Where did She appear?
2. What was Her "Complaint"?
3. What was Her "Request"?
4. What did She "Prophesied"?
5. What was the "World Response"?
6. Consequences related to the "World Response".
The question that should then reverberate in our hearts as we read this work
* ARE WE GOING TO LISTEN TO HER NOW ? *
As you read on, please, do so with the following questions in mind...
* What would have happened if Noah had not listened to God?
* What would have happened if the King of Ninive had not listened to God through
* What about Lot and his family (minus disobedient wife)?
*What would have happened if John the Baptist had not obeyed the promptings of
the Holy Spirit?
The Old Testament is full of human misdeeds, Heavenly warnings and subsequent
action by Heaven. Are the times different now ? This writer has been told
repeatedly: "With the death of St. John the New Testament was completed and no
further revelations are needed".
This is true! No further revelations are needed. However, Marian Apparitions
do not give us any new revelations. They take place to call us to
live the 1,900 + year old revelations! They also remind us of the
consequences should we continue to refuse, as a civilization, to try to live
the Gospel to the fullness of our individual abilities.
Do we think that we are really immune to Heaven admonishments and punishments?
That that could only happen to Noah's neighbors ? To Lot's neighbors? Their
neighbors thought so too and so did the residents of Jerusalem toward the end
of the First Century A.D.
Mary has clearly stated, through Her apparitions of the last 35+ years, that
these are Her last apparitions on earth: "I have come to call the world to
conversion for the last time. Afterwards, I will not appear any more on this
earth" (Medjugorje - May 2, 1982). This statement is in harmony with the
messages through other apparition locations and with the Holy Scriptures
[Rev. 12: 4-7 & 12-17]
If we analyze Her key apparitions, prophecies, response and follow up events, we
will realize that Her accuracy is flawless and absolutely coherent with the
Old and New Testament.
Therefore, if She is always on target, even as blind as we are to the
supernatural, shouldn't we listen carefully and obey Her 'Last Call' ?
We cannot separate Mary from Jesus. We cannot separate Jesus, Our Lord and Our
God, from His Creation and all that takes place in it - politics included !
satan has tried to lead the faithful from Christ, therefore he also attempts to
cloud all Marian messages and confound the faithful. This is why She
continuously pleads with Her children to "Pray so that you may comprehend the
purpose of my visits".
And pray we must, for as a last ditch effort, the enemies of God are even
tampering and redoing old publications of Marian Apparitions and altering
current messages in order to cloud their direct relationship to world events.
In this manner, Her apparitions and apocalyptic warnings will be reduced to
"Courtesy Visits" from the Virgin Mary to "give us hope and good cheer".
We must understand: The only hope that we have is to follow Her instructions:
+ Return to My Son. Live the Gospel as
Jesus preached it. +
+ The Gospel has not changed ! Return to the Sacraments! +
Soothing talk that encourages us to bring the Gospel of Jesus down to our base
human level will not work. We need to strive to bring our wretched natures up
to the level of the Gospel!
Every legitimate Marian message exhorts us, directly or indirectly to :
* Participate in the Divine Liturgy
* Partake of the Sacraments frequently, especially Reconciliation and
* Perform Acts of Reparation.
* Do Penance (Fasting being specifically requested now.)
In more general terms: Live the Faith that we profess
We do not have to go around to see which priest believes in what apparition. We
do not have to confirm every apparition ourselves. We must follow the key
messages of all apparitions. Jesus Christ Himself asked us to do so almost
2,000 years ago.
This writer, as a scientist, with an advanced engineering degree from the
University of California at Berkeley, a University which, at the time of his
graduation, had thirteen Nobel Prize winners in the faculty, having done
research under the auspices of the Atomic Energy Commission and having the
dubious honor of living as a Pagan for the first 42 years of his life, humbly
advise you as follows:
After studying in depth the Key Marian Apparitions, the confirmed
supernatural events that accompany them and the prophetic precision of "the
lady that keeps appearing", it would be total insanity to ignore those
messages - and most especially - the level of urgency which accompanies
May the Holy Spirit illuminate your soul brightly as you try to understand the
significance of the visits of Our Heavenly Mother.
