Our Lady of Perpetual Help, June 27 Church of St. Alphonsus, Rome, Italy

Our Lady of Perpetual Help

 

11:00 Gentle Women

Believed to be from the thirteenth of fourteenth century from the island of Crete.  In 1499 it was placed in the Church of St. Mathew on Esquiline Hill in Rome.  The church was destroyed in 1798 under orders from Napoleon.  In 1853, at the request of Pope Pius 1X, the Redemptorist Fathers built a church next to those remains.  A priest learned of the saved image’s whereabouts and asked the Pope to have the painting returned to where it had been for almost 300 years.  Pius recalled having prayed before that very painting as a boy.  The Pope commissioned the Order to preach devotion to Mary under this image.

The Greek letters next to Mary’s crown are “Mother of God”

next to the child        =       Jesus Christ

letters on the left       =       St. Michael the Archangel

letters on the right    =       St. Gabriel the Archangel

Our Lady of Fatima, June 13 Basilica of the Rosary Fatima, Portugal

Our Lady of Fatima

 

10:00 Hail Mary

In 1917 Mary appeared to three young children of Fatima, appearing on the thirteenth of each month from May until October.  Mary told them of three things for the conversion of sinners and peace in the world; to pray daily, especially the rosary and wearing the brown scapular; to make reparations for one’s sins; and, to consecrate the world, especially Russia, to her Immaculate Heart.  Mary said that she would give them a sign at the last apparition.  On that day Mary declared “I am the Lady of the Rosary.”  She told them that many souls would be saved, that Russia would be converted and a period of peace would be given to mankind if her request were followed.  70,000 people from numerous races and creeds witnessed the “Miracle of the Sun.”  The sun was seen to twirl or dance in the sky, then descend to the earth as if it would crash down upon them, before it suddenly returned back to its place in the sky.  No one that stared at the sun for the entire happening had an eye or retina damage.

Three statues have been fashioned after the original, they travel around the world inspiring people and reminding them of Mary’s promises and her “peace plan from heaven.”

Our Lady of Czestochowa, August 26 Church of the Assumption, Czestochowa, Poland

Our Lady of Czestochowa

 

9:00 Serdeczna Matko

Legend says that this image was painted by St. Luke on a table top that belonged to Mary.  From Jerusalem, St. Helena took the painting to Constantinople where it remained for 500 years, eventually being in the possession of Prince Ladislaus of Poland in the 1400’s.  During an attack on the castle at Belz, an arrow struck the painting in the throat.  To protect it, he was going to move it to the city of Opala.  Stopping in Czestochova for the night, the horses refused to move on the morning of August 26, 1382.

St. Ladislaus had a church and monastery built there for the Pauline Fathers, who have cared for the painting since.  In 1430 the monastery was attacked by the Hussites, who put the painting in a wagon with other stolen items.  The horses refused to move.  When the Hussites learned of this happening before, they threw the painting to the ground.  One of them struck the painting twice with his sword, but on the third attempt, fell to the ground in agony until his death.  All attempts to repair the scars have failed, they always reappear.  The portrait faced numerous other threats, but miracles continued to protect it.

The accounts of many miracles and cures, attributed to this painting of Our Lady, are preserved in the archives of the Pauline Fathers at Jasna Gora.

Coronation of Mary, August 22

Coronation of Mary, August 22

 

8:00 Our Lady, Queen of Angels

The fifth Glorious Mystery of the rosary crowns Mary as “Queen of Heaven.”  In 1954, Pope Pius XXII officially established the “Queenship of Mary,” not as an empty title or as an honorary distinction, but with its roots in scripture and most especially as Jesus’ mother – a queen by divine relationship.

A Queen Mother is one whose son later becomes king.  Jesus was king at birth.  Mary’s was a divine motherhood because she conceived a king.  It was the Angel Gabriel that told Mary the Lord God would give Jesus the throne of his father, David, and that of his kingdom there would be no end (Lk 1:32-33).

May is the month dedicated to Mary and this is the time when coronation is the traditional form of reverence shown to images of our Blessed Mother.  A crown is a symbol of a queen and of a follower of Christ.  Mary is the perfect follower, worthy of the “crown of glory” that is promised to those who follow Christ (1 Peter 5:4).

St. John saw Mary crowned in Revelations 12:1, “A great sign appeared in the sky, a women clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars.”

Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal, November 27 Chapel of the Apparitions Paris, France

Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal

 

7:00 Ave Maria

In 1830, St. Catherine Laboure, a novice of the Daughters of Charity in Paris, was called from her bed by a child who led her to the chapel where Mary appeared to her.  In the second, of three, apparitions, Mary appeared standing on a globe, holding another globe in her hand that Mary told her represented the world.  When that globe disappeared, many beautiful rings with precious stones were on her hands with rays of light shining out from them.  She told Catherine that the rays were symbols of the graces she would shed upon those that asked for them.  There was a frame around our Blessed Mother and gold letters that read “O Mary conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.”  A voice then said to Catherine, “Have a medal struck according to this model.  All who wear it will receive great graces especially if they wear it around their neck.”

The back of the image had the letter “M” surmounted by a cross with a crossbar beneath it.  Two hearts were under the “M”, the Sacred Heart of Jesus, encircled with thorns, and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, pierced by a sword.  Twelve stars encircled the image. 

Catherine’s confessor relayed all that she had told him to the Archbishop, who saw that the medal was made.  Because of its inscription, the medal was originally known as the “Medal of the Immaculate Conception.”   But because of so many conversions and miracles associated with the medal it became known as the “Miraculous Medal.”

Our Lady of Guadalupe, December 12 The Basilica of Guadalupe, Mexico City, Mexico

Our Lady of Guadalupe

 

6:00 Las Apariciones Gudalupanas

 

In 1531 as Juan Diego, an Aztec Indian, was traveling through the Tepeyac hill country in central Mexico, Mary appeared to him.  She told him that she loved him and desired that he know who she was, the mother of the true God, who gives life.  She promised to console all who implore her help and that they would be at peace.  She asked him to go to the bishop in Tenochtitlan with her request that a church be built on this spot.  Mary was waiting when Juan Diego returned, he told her that the bishop would only consider her request and that maybe she should send someone else.  Mary told him that it was he she had chosen and that he should go back to the bishop and repeat her request.

The bishop asked Juan Diego for a sign from the Lady to prove who she was.  Mary’s response to Juan Diego was “My little Son, am I not your Mother?  Do not fear, the Bishop shall have his sign.”  Though it was winter, Mary told Juan Diego to pick roses that were growing there and she arranged them inside of his tilma.  When Juan Diego opened his tilma to the bishop and others, the roses fell out, and there, on the inside of the tilma, was a picture of Mary exactly as Juan Diego had described her.  The tilma now hangs over the alter in the Basilica.  Made of cactus cloth, it has not disintegrated, nor has the image faded in over 470 years.

Our Lady of Lourdes February 11 Basilica of the Immaculate Conception Lourdes, France

Our Lady of Lourdes February 11 Basilica of the Immaculate Conception Lourdes, France

 

5:00 Immaculate Mary

 

In 1858 Mary appeared eighteen times to Bernadette Soubirous in a grotto near Lourdes.  On Mary’s arm was the rosary and when Bernadette first saw her she fell to her knees and began to recite the prayers.  Mary asked her to pray for the conversion of sinners and instructed that a chapel be built on the site.

On February 25th Mary told Bernadette to dig in the dirt.  Water began to trickle out of the earth until it became a full-flowing stream.  Many miraculous cures have since taken place here as people have bathed in, or been blessed with, this flowing water.

It was on the March 25th apparition, the Feast of the Annunciation, that Mary proclaimed to Bernadette, “I am the Immaculate Conception,” confirming herself to have been conceived without any trace of original sin.

The Immaculate Heart of Mary, June, Saturday after the Sacred Heart of Jesus

The Immaculate Heart of Mary, June, Saturday after the Sacred Heart of Jesus

 

4:00 O Sanctissima

Many writers in the Church have spoken of the “Heart” of Mary, especially in conjunctions with the Sacred Heart of Jesus.  Devotion increased after Mary’s appearances in 1830 to St. Catherine in France and in 1917 to the children at Fatima.

The vision of the miraculous medal given to St. Catherine contained Mary’s heart pierced as referenced in Luke 2:35.  It was at Fatima that Mary said God wished to establish in the world devotion to her “Immaculate Heart,” and when she asked that Russia be consecrated to her “Immaculate Heart.”

In 1942, on the twenty-fifth anniversary of Mary’s appearances at Fatima, Pope Pius XX II consecrated the world to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. The feast day is now celebrated on the Saturday following the Sacred Heart of Jesus. On that day the opening liturgical prayer is:

God prepared the heart of Mary as a fitting home to the Holy Spirit.  May we, his chosen people, become temples of His glory.  We ask Mary to help us – her spiritual children, so dear to her heart, to stay ever united in friendship with her Son and never separate ourselves by sin.

Our Lady of San Juan de los Lagos, December 8 Basilica of San Juan de los Lagos, Jalisco, Mexico

Our Lady of San Juan de los Lagos

 

3:00 Oh Maria, Madre Mia

 

In 1623 a young girl who was performing on a trapeze of sorts that was situated over swords and knives, fell to her death.  The parents wrapped the body in burial cloths and took her to the chapel of Our Lady of San Juan.  The wife of the caretaker was so moved by the grieving parents that she took the statue and laid it on the child’s body.  When the body began to move the parents unwrapped their child to find her alive and without injuries.

The statue was in poor condition and the father asked if he could take the statue and have it repaired.  An artist in Guadalajara was employed to do the work.  The statue was restored beautifully, but the artist vanished, with his whereabouts and identity always remaining a mystery.  In 1732 a larger church had to be built to accommodate visitors, who approach the statue on their knees.

Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, July 16 Mount Carmel, Israel

Our Lady of Mt. Carmel

 

2:00 Hail, Queen of Heaven

On July 16, 1251, Mary appeared to St. Simon Stock, a member of the Carmelite Order, as he prayed to her for the continuation of the Order.  She presented to him a brown scapular, in imitation of the sleeveless outer garment of a monk’s habit.  Mary said that the scapular was a sign of salvation and that whoever died wearing the scapular would not suffer the eternal fire. 

The Carmelite Order began on Mount Carmel sometime during the twelfth century by hermits living there in imitation of the prophet Elijah and in devotion to the Blessed Mother.  The motto of the Order is from the words of Elijah: “I am filled with zeal for the Lord, the God of Hosts” (King 19:10).

Our Lady of Mount Carmel is also known as “Star of the Sea” a title that developed out of the little cloud that rose from the sea as Elijah prayed.  Chrysippus of Jerusalem called her the “Cloud of rain that offers drink to the souls of the Saints.”

At the last apparition at Fatima, Mary also appeared as Our Lady of Mount Carmel holding out the brown scapular.

1:00 Sing Mary, Pure and Lowly

In 1896, around the region of Padua, Italy artist Roberto Ferruzzi saw a young peasant girl, Angelina Cian, caring for her little brother.  Ferruzzi was moved to paint a portrait of the little girl.

He had not intended the painting to be of the Blessed Mother, but because the girl looked like a little Madonna he called it La Madonnina.  The painting was first exhibited in Venice in 1897.  As it gained worldwide fame, it affectionately became known as The Madonna of the Streets.

Angelina married Antonio Bovo and moved to America in 1906.  Angelina had ten children, several who have returned to Italy to visit their mother’s famous beginnings.

She died in the 1970’s.

 

It is not known where the original painting is now, but its last owner, John Leishman, died in France in 1924.

Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament, May 13

Queen Enthroned

12:00 Hail Holy Queen Enthroned

Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament was inspired for the New Millennium.  In this image, the Virgin Mary makes manifest the glory of the Lord to the world.  As she brings Jesus forth, her gesture and humble plea request her children draw nearer to her Son in Eucharistic Adoration.  Through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, and in union with desires of our Blessed Mother’s heart, our Pope, John Paul 11 has asked that parishes have perpetual Adoration as a way of bringing peace to the world.

Let us join with our Blessed Mother in these most urgent times and enter into the New Millennium with a fervent and renewed devotion in these most awesome mystery of the Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Our Lord, Jesus Christ.

Blessed Mother Mary

Whenever Mary appears or inspires, it is in a manner that is recognizable to that person, hence the many different images of Mary, and yet, each one brings inspiration and blessing to us all.  Mary comes to us to bring the message of peace, to remind us of the peace and salvation that is ours through her son, Jesus Christ.  Mary also tells us who she is, most lovingly, as when she said to Juan Diego “Am I not your Mother?” These are just twelve of the depictions of Mary.  The documentations of the miracles and grace that have been received from Our Lady in conjunction with these images read as awesome events in human history. 

The form of Prayer Mary most often urges us to use is the Rosary, a collection of Hail Mary’s and Our Father’s, traditionally seen as having been given by her to St, Dominic in the eleventh century.

The Hail Mary begins with the words from Luke 1:28, 42; 

Hail Mary full of grace, the Lord is with you

Blessed are you among women and

Blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus

 Holy Mary, Mother of God Pray for us children

Now and at the hour of out death, Amen
