by Tara Sidesinger
The Blessed Virgin Mary was chosen to be the Mother of Christ because she had the ability to hold the light and the balance for his entire mission. Since her ascension, Mary has made several famous appearances and continues today to respond immediately to the call of any and all her children on earth. In the twentieth century alone, more than two hundred appearances of Mary, the Mother of Jesus have been reported in over 30 countries. People claim Mary has appeared to them as they pray, watched her statues weep or have seen images on walls or windows. And some tell us Mary has revealed urgent prophecies and secrets. Mary has appeared to children and simple folks who could receive her messages in humility and convey them with undiluted simplicity.
A woman who wants to remain anonymous, said when she was 5 years old in church with several other children silently listening to their teacher, while sitting in the pews saw something move out of the corner of her eye. She watched as the statue of Mother Mary at the front of the stage, moved her hands toward her and the other children. She didn’t mention it to anyone until later she found out the three other children in her class had seen the same thing, and they had reported their vision to their parents.
The Angel of Peace appeared to three shepherd children in Fatima, Portugal in 1916, prior to the appearances of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The Angel was described as “A light whiter than snow in the form of a young man, transparent and brighter than crystal, pierced by the rays of the sun.” The angel said, “Do not be afraid, I am the Angel of Peace. Pray with me.” He kneeled with his forehead to the ground and said, “My God, I believe, I adore, I hope and I love you. I ask pardon of you for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not hope and do not love you. The Angel taught the children to pray and offer sacrifices to God on behalf of others. Our Lady of Fatima, the Blessed Virgin Mary also appeared to the three shepherd children, Lucia Santos and her cousins Jacinta and Francisco Marto between May and October 1917 in the Cova da Iria fields near Fatima, Portugal. She told the children secrets and prophecies and she asked them to pray.
Our Lady of Medjugorje is the title given to the Blessed Virgin Mary by those who believe she appeared in 1981 to six children in Medjugorje, city in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Many phenomena have been reported at Medjugorje, such as the sun spinning, dancing in the sky, turning colors or being surrounded by objects such as hearts or crosses. The tall cement cross erected on Mount Krizevac, which means “Cross Mountain” has reportedly disappeared and reappeared or else glowed as lit with lights, although there is no electricity on the mountain. Not everyone sees the same miracles at the same time. Numerous miracles of healings have also been documented.
People who have witnessed the Blessed Virgin Mary say her face is long and oval with black hair. Her eyes are blue with delicate eyelashes and she has rosy cheeks. She has beautiful reddish thin lips and her smile is more like some indescribable gentleness. A simple bluish grey dress which falls freely all the way down to the little whitish cloud she is standing on. Her veil is pure white and covers her head and shoulders, it also reaches down to the little white cloud. She has a crown of 12 golden stars on her head. Her beauty cannot be described, it is something ethereal, heavenly, something that we’ll only see in paradise. Visionary Mirjana, in her autobiography, says that when they asked, “How is it possible that you are so beautiful? Our lady gently smiled. “I am beautiful because I love,” she said. “If you want to be beautiful, then love.”
