“A New Dogma”

April 15, 1951 by Ida Peerdeman

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…

Mary Co-redemptrix: A Response to 7 Common Objections

On December 23, 2000, The New York Times ran a cover story in its “Arts and Ideas” section on the Vox Populi Mariae Mediatrici movement, which seeks the papal definition of the Blessed Virgin Mary as the Co-redemptrix, Mediatrix of all graces and Advocate. This article was in turn reprinted in a great number of U.S. major newspapers, thereby sparking renewed and high-spirited debate internationally over the concept of Our Lady as “Co-redemptrix,” both inside and outside Catholic circles of thought.

Although diverse in their formulation, most objections to Our Lady’s title of Co-redemptrix and her subsequent role in Coredemption fall into the same foundational categories (many of which were debated in recent publications in response to The New York Times piece). There is a critical need to articulate to the general public (let alone to the growing genus of uncatechized Catholic faithful), the basic doctrinal truths contained in the…

Message of the Three Archangels – April 5, 2017

St. Michael: Behold, beloved of the Father, we, the Three Archangels, bring you guidance from heaven. Ponder all that we share with you.

Beloved, your Lenten journey has been a difficult one with much suffering through your illnesses. You have embraced your suffering with your all and God is pleased with you. Continue to surrender your all to God as you prepare to enter into Holy Week. During this period, beloved, your suffering for the world will intensify more than ever. The Eternal Father is taking your suffering and…

Message of the Archangels                                                                                         November 2, 2017

St. Michael:  Behold, beloved of the Father, we, the Three Archangels, bring you guidance from heaven.  Ponder all that we share with you.

Beloved, we, the Three Archangels, are with you in a special way for all the suffering that you are undertaking in reparation for all the evil throughout the world.  The Beast continues to attack you in any way that he can, and his venom is powerful against you.  He continues to seek ways that can destroy your spirit.  Do not fear and do not allow him to…

Mary: Co-Redemptrix, Not Co-Equal

Giving Mary the official title of ‘Co-Redemptrix’ may prompt a knee-jerk reaction among some who think this will be “too much” and suggest Mary is equal to Jesus. Dr Mark Miravalle, Professor of Theology and Mariology at the Franciscan University of Steubenville, disagrees.
At the December launch of Professor Courtenay Bartholomew’s book, Mary Is the Co-Redemptrix at the Living Water Community, he presented a case to support a fifth dogma of Mary, as Co-Redemptrix.
Dr Miravalle is the president of Vox Populi Mariae Mediatrici, a Catholic movement seeking the solemn papal definition of the Blessed Virgin Mary as Co-Redemptrix (but not co-equal), Mediatrix, and Advocate.
Miravalle made it clear at the start of his…

Purgatory: Part Two

 The following text concerning purgatory comes from visions recounted in Mist of Mercy by “Anne,” a lay apostle. She has received permission from her local ordinary, Bishop Leo O’Reilly, for the distribution of messages which she receives from Jesus, God the Father, Our Blessed Mother, the angels and saints (see article, “Discernment of Lay Apostolate of Jesus Christ the Returning King,” Marian Private Revelation section). This is part two of a two part series. – Ed..

 

April 30, 2006 

Today Our Lord brought me over the heavenly Kingdom. He stopped in the Valley of Solitude and I looked down at the stream, forest, mountains and valleys. Jesus said, “This is all for you, Anne. Do you understand?” 

Indeed I did. At that moment, I understood the smallest bit…

Sacred Heart of Jesus: Furnace of Love During His Passion

The entire earthly life of our adorable Savior was a continual exercise of charity and goodness towards us. But it was at the time of His Passion that He gave us the most remarkable proofs of His love. Then it was that out of the abundance of his charity, He suffered frightful torments to deliver us from the terrible punishments of hell and to win for us the everlasting joys of heaven. It was then that His adorable body was covered with wounds and bathed in His blood. His sacred head was pierced with sharp thorns, His hands and feet were transfixed with huge nails, His ears filled with blasphemies and curses, His lips moistened with gall and vinegar, and his soul forcibly and painfully wrenched from His body by the cruel Jews. At that time particularly His divine Heart was rent by countless painful, bleeding wounds. Indeed, one…

Conformity to Christ and the Immaculate Heart of Mary Coredemptrix

Having reflected on the spiritual journey of the soul from conversion right up to a mystical transubstantiation into the Immaculate, and having seen the crucial role of our Mother Coredemptrix throughout, it would be extremely negligent not to treat of that final destination of the journey which is Jesus Christ. To be perfectly conformed to Jesus Crucified, to be espoused to Him in a transforming union: this is the supreme summit of holiness that is attainable during this earthly pilgrimage. There is no spiritual height which surpasses Jesus Christ who is Himself “our sanctification” (I Cor. 1:30). Union with Him, by grace in this life and by glory in the next; this alone constitutes blessedness.

Obviously it is beyond the scope of this short essay to cover this exhaustively. For our purposes it shall be sufficient to show how perfect conformity to Christ Crucified and transforming union with Him is…

Ecclesiastical Approval of the Appartitions of The Lady of All Nations

May 31,2002

In Response to Inquiries Concerning the Lady of All Nations Apparitions

As Bishop of Haarlem/Amsterdam, I have been requested to make a statement regarding the authenticity of the apparitions of Mary as the Lady of All Nations in Amsterdam during the years of 1945-1959. Many members of the faithful and bishops have emphasized the urgency for clarification. I also have been personally aware that this development of devotion, which has spanned over 50 years, call for this.

As it is known, my predecessor, Msgr. H. Bomers and myself had previously given permission for public veneration in 1996. As to the supernatural character of the apparitions and contents of the messages, we did not give our judgment, but declared that “everyone is free to make a judgment for himself or herself according to their conscience.” Having had a generally positive attitude towards authenticity, we decided to await further…
