All Knotted Up…?

In the last few years, we discovered with much delight, the special novena to ‘Mary Undoer of Knots’ or ‘Mary Untier of Knots’ and are pleased to note that we share this favourite Marian devotion with Pope Francis (please click here for article).

The ‘knots’ in this context relates to the challenges in our daily lives for which we do not see any solution. In today’s world, the 300 year Marian devotion is fast gaining popularity far and wide, as it has been translated into several languages. It is interesting to note that it is not based on any apparition of the Virgin Mary.

Our Lady’s Messages to the World

Followers of all Marian apparitions would know that wherever she has appeared, the Blessed Virgin Mary always left the visionaries with requests to pray for the good of mankind and peace in the world.

Garabandal

The messages of the Blessed Virgin Mary in her apparitions to four young children in San Sebastian de Garabandal, Spain during the years 1961 to 1965, can be read by clicking on Garabandal. 

For all who are interested in the latest updates on this subject, just click on the July-September 2012 issue of the Garabandal International Magazine for your online reading pleasure. The “Garabandal International” is published quarterly, by the Australian Garabandal International Apostolate.This latest issue also highlights the Penang Garabandal Centre on page 16.

The spectrum of apparitions all over the world

To outline all the apparitions of Our Lady over the years, would entail a lot of research and thankfully, it has been compiled into a book entitled …For the salvation of the World…..( A Love Story about Mary). Click here for more information and a free download of the most updated book.

I take this opportunity to remind all who believe in the power of praying the rosary, that 15 August 2012 is the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Till the next update, thank you for your interest in Our Lady’s messages to us.

Garabandal and its historic flow of events

A while ago, I introduced the Garabandal site via this link.

Situated in the Cantabrian Mountains of northwest Spain, San Sebastian de Garabandal is a small hamlet, unique in the history of Marian apparitions, with the Blessed Virgin Mary appearing over 2000 times from July 2, 1961 until November 13, 1965.

For the longest time, the people of this humble and remote village have gathered together daily for the recitation of the rosary and litanies of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

If this raises a curiosity for more information on the flow of events that took place….here are the links for you to click on..

For those who pray the rosary, please keep it up on a daily basis…

God Bless
