Our Lady of Lourdes


The 11th of February is the feast day of Our Lady of Lourdes. She is the patron saint of Lourdes, France, Quezon City of Metro Manila, Tagaytay City of Cavite, Barangay Granada of Bacolod City, Daegu, South Korea, Tennessee, Diocese of Lancaster, bodily ills, sick people, and protection from diseases.

Our Lady appeared to Bernadette Soubiroux on 11th February 1858 in Massabielle, southern France. Bernadette reported seeing 18 apparitions of the Woman Whom she described to be as “lovelier than I have ever seen” that year. The Woman in the apparition called Herself the “Immaculate Conception,” confirming the dogma which was defined by the Pope in the four years previously. Our Lady asked Bernadette to drink from a fountain at the grotto and a chapel to be built on the spot. Bernadette scratched at the dirt where a stream of pure water came forth and drank from it. The water prove to have healing properties, drawing pilgrims to the grotto worldwide. A basillica was eventually built in Massabielle, and was consecrated as the “Church of the Rosary” in 1876.

Our Lady of Medjugorje

February 2, 2018 Message to Mirjana

Dear children, you whom my Son loves, you whom I love with an immeasurable motherly love, do not permit for selfishness, for self love, to rule the world. Do not permit for love and goodness to be hidden. You who are loved, who have come to know the love of my Son, remember that to be loved means to love. My children, have faith. When you have faith you are happy and are spreading peace; your soul trembles with joy. My Son is in such a soul. When you are giving yourself for the faith, when you are giving yourself for love, when you are doing good to your neighbor, my Son smiles in your soul. Apostles of my love, I am turning to you as a mother. I am gathering you around myself and I desire to lead you on the way of love and faith, on the way which leads to the light of the world. I am here for the sake of love, for the sake of faith, because with my motherly blessing I desire to give you hope and strength on your way - because the way which leads to my Son is not easy. It is full of renunciation, giving, sacrifice, forgiveness and much, much love. But this way leads to peace and happiness. My children, do not believe lying voices which speak to you about false things, false glitter. You, my children, return to the Scripture. I am looking at you with immeasurable love, and through God's grace am making myself evident to you. My children, set out with me. May your soul tremble with joy. Thank you.
