A new worldwide prayer and petition campaign for the solemn papal definition of Our Lady as the Spiritual Mother of All Peoples, inclusive of her three maternal roles as Co-redemptrix, Mediatrix of all graces, and Advocate, was initiated on September 8, 2018, and will continue until May 31, 2019 (see AmsterdamApparitions.com). As the Church and the world seem to be in greater need by the day of the historic graces that this Marian proclamation will bring, this campaign seeks to use all possible means to bring forth this dogmatic crown for the Mother of Jesus and our own Spiritual Mother.
Petitions from the People of God for this Marian definition continue to flow into the Vatican from all five continents. Recently, on September 15, 2018, Feast of the Sorrowful Mother, the International Marian Association, an international symposium of Marian scholars, bishops, and lay leaders, convened to discuss the role of Mary Co-redemptrix from a global perspective, and to work in solidarity for the Fifth Marian Dogma (see InternationalMarian.com/YouTube “Franciscan Friars”).
But perhaps there is still one more component necessary for this Fifth Marian Dogma to become a reality—the offering of our sufferings and penance.
On the feast of St. Pio of Pietrelcina (September 23, 2018, exemplar saint of the value of offering our sufferings), a woman mystic has conveyed visions and concurring messages regarding the current campaign for the Fifth Marian Dogma. The visions and accompanying message call for a new and critically important dimension for the success of the campaign, namely, the asking for and offering of sufferings and penance, united to the Cross of Jesus Christ, for the specific intention of the fifth Marian Dogma. The brief visions and message from Our Lady appear below (the prayer discernment of which can be done by each individual):
I felt like I was being transported to a room that was full of people. They were listening to a speaker talking about Our Lady. In the midst of the people, I saw the Lady of All Nations standing there, and her hands were tied together. She appeared to be sad. Then tears rolled down from her eyes.
She looked at the people and said, “You have to untie my hands.”
I asked, “How do I do that?”
She said, “Ask for more suffering and do penance.” She paused and said almost in a whispering voice, “The Dogma is very close.”
I understood that the proclamation of the Dogma of Mary Co-redemptrix, Mediatrix, and Advocate would take place when the world least expected it and in a subtle way. I saw Pope Francis, and I could also see his heart exposed (Then Our Lady said in a whispering voice again, “Latino men love their mothers.”)
Not long after that, I found myself in Amsterdam, looking at the picture of the Lady of All Nations in the chapel of where the picture is kept, but it wasn’t a picture, it was Our Lady herself, and again her hands were tied.
I looked at her and said to her, “Can I take your place?”
I heard her heart speaking to me first before she said anything verbally, “O, my child, if you only knew what suffering you will have to endure.” Then she said verbally to me, “You would do that for me?” And then she was gone.
Our Lady then returned and said, “The love and the mercy of the Cross will be your weapon. Use it wisely.”
The above words, respectful of individual discernment, nonetheless, convey the conviction in my heart and the hearts of many other bishops, clergy, and faithful worldwide, a critical truth about Our Lady and our present situation. Mary is in a true sense “bound” from releasing the full graces of her heavenly intercession until we freely and solemnly acknowledge her motherly roles for us. Only when the Pope, the Vicar of Christ in the name of all humanity, solemnly proclaims Our Lady’s roles as Co-redemptrix, Mediatrix of all graces and Advocate, can she then fully exercise these roles for the Church and for the world today, and thereby release the torrent of graces, which she desires to bring to her earthly children. God respects our freedom and will not “force” the full intercession of the Mother of All Peoples upon us, even at this present critical historical moment when we so desperately need the grace and peace that can only come through Our Lady.
Please prayerfully consider offering your present sufferings, and perhaps adding some personal penance, for the specific intention of the heart of Pope Francis and the papal definition of Mary as the Spiritual Mother of All Peoples.
What are we willing to offer up to “release” our Mother, so that She can intercede for the grace, purity, and peace that the Church and the world so urgently need?
