319- Nikos Steves on the Work for New Book Marketing

Here are some of the things I’ve done recently for getting the word out to people who may enjoy reading my new book, The Very Fine Light – to be released on November 3rd on Amazon.com.

Also, Pray for the People of Ukraine. There are links below on ways to support them.

Last week was all about the business of selling the book. First off, you may have noticed a new background look specific to these website pages and posts.

There will be more pages coming soon, plus I value your feedback for other things you’d like to see on the website.

Good news! I’ve just approved the new book cover! When I receive the finished graphic, you can be sure I will share it with you on the website!

Not being a graphic artist, I chose to “hire it done” by someone who specializes in creating book covers for the book industry.

While the November book release will be the e-book only version and just feature the front cover, never the less, most all of the successful author’s I’ve seen as well as well as my publishing consultants had advised using a professional cover artist and I’m excited by the final design.

I’ve done lots of research to find the right email client to improve the sign up and subscribing experience on the website.

There are so many email apps out there and each feature all sorts of advanced tools, it’s the old story, one email app felt too basic and another too complex and so right now I’m serious thinking about going with MailChimp.

Either way, it will be in place next week. Please come and sign up!

As for the introduction of several characters in the book, check out this week’s podcast above.

Part 16 of my first book, “The Constant Procession.” Tourism industry travelogues typically feature romantic locations, historic sites as well as get-away destinations. When considering where to go in the world of travel, Medjugorje, a village located in Bosnia and Herzegovina typically does not come to mind.

Why did the Madonna come to Medjugorje?

In this podcast installment taken from my book The Constant Procession, I explore possible answers.

315- The Constant Procession: Part 15

The fifteenth installment from my book, The Constant Procession. It’s the early 1980’s and the Madonna apperates at Medjugorje in Yugoslavia, (modern day Bosnia and Herzegovina.)

The Virgin Mary offers words of clarity on how a person can ‘return to God’ and enjoy the ‘fullness of life.’

Meanwhile a Pope and a President find renewed clarity of purpose as they recover from the attempts on their lives.

Pray for the People of Ukraine. There are links below on ways to support them.

Beginning podcast of my book: 301-The Constant Procession: Part 1

I am often asked; “What did the Virgin Mary say?” In this 15th episode covering Chapter 26 we find her actual words as testified to by the six teenage seers.

Starting with the first of her contacts with the young teenagers in Medjugorje she told them very specific things that were on her mind.  Firstly the apparition identified herself as the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Queen of Peace.  

She told the visionaries that she had an urgent message for humanity to return to God.

She said to the seers: “I have come to tell the world that God exists. He is fullness of life, and to enjoy the fullness and obtain peace, you must return to God.”

During the apparitions, the visionaries did not react to light or sound; they did not react to being touched. They felt they were outside of time and space.

Our Lady presented herself as a servant messenger from God. The visionaries told of what the Madonna said to them.

PEACE – Already on the third day, Our Lady stressed peace as the first part of her messages: “Peace, peace, peace and only peace!” after which she said twice, “Peace must reign between God and man and between people.”

FAITH her second message and she repeated this message many times. Without faith we cannot arrive at peace! 

PURIFY or cleanse the heart, because a corrupt or ‘deteriorated’ heart is the basis of bad relations, which in turn brings social disorder, even unjust laws. Without a radical change of heart, without the conversion of the heart, there is no peace.

PRAYER, to pray every day, she requests everyone to “pray without ceasing” just as Christ himself taught.  Pray, Give Him thanks for His gifts to us. Prayer aids us in our “ordered relationship with God.” Without which it is impossible to maintain peace either with God or with our neighbor.

FASTING – Already on the sixth day of the apparitions, The Madonna often recommended fasting because it helps faith. That is, the practice of fasting aids and ensures control over oneself. “Only the person who can dominate them-self is truly free.”

These first messages she brought did not convey new teachings, but reinforced the Gospels and teachings of the traditional Churches. These messages began to appear around the world reaching millions of people.

Also found in this episode is Chapter 27 entitled “The Pointy Edge of the Sword.” This military term used by the Marine’s accurately portrays the curious surroundings and circumstances that are frequently overlooked when this apparition at Medjugorje come to mind.

The location in the early 1980’s took place at a similarly remote location in the world as found with earlier apparitions. And during the early 80’s the area was experiencing excitement in preparing for the 1984 Winter Olympics in Sarajevo.

It was a time of great pride for the Communist country of Yugoslavia.

The Madonna first appeared there in those heady times. Her efforts were in part to warn of unspeakable changes that could occur in this region of the world without a return to God.

313- The Constant Procession: Part 13

The thirteenth installment from my book, The Constant Procession.

In Chapter 22 entitled “Unheeded Prayers” the remaining Fatima Seer; Sister Lucia, brings forward to the Pope requests made to her by the Virgin Mary during the apparition she experienced in Portugal in 1917.

Recalling what the Madonna told Sister Lucia: “If you pay heed to my requests, Russia will be converted and there will be peace. If not, Russia will spread her errors through the world, causing wars and persecutions against the Church. Many will suffer martyrdom, and the Holy Father will have much to suffer, and several nations will disappear.” 

Chapter 23, A Society Without God reflects on the environment in the sphere of Soviet influence for people living in a world without social liberty and when Bibles were banished.  The experience of a 7th day Adventist reveals the level of suppression people of faith had to endure in those times.

Chapter 24Hot Pursuit in a Cold War brings out how with increasing confidence, the Communists took religion down. And with huge armies still deployed in Europe and the newly aquired power of atomic weapons, the victors squared off using new battle techniques.

The “Great Return” found fierce resistance in France as the communists gained control of the political machine. In Hungary however, the procession yielded fruit, until it too was run aground.

312- The Constant Procession: Part 12

The twelfth installment from my book, The Constant Procession. World War I delivered death as many gave their lives in Christ like fashion. These brave souls fought to protect their families and the world from the aggressive territorial confrontations fostered by the attitude that “might makes right.”

The resulting post war societal loss of the best and brightest, created a multifaceted vacuum.

Fatalism overtook faith and the Roaring Twenties attitude of “anything goes” became the way of the world.

The remaining Fatima seer, Sister Lucia pleads for one of the Fatima apparition’s main requests. That the world re-consecrates itself to love one another and be in constant prayer.

Chapter 21 follows by delving into the history of the “Great Return.” Which includes the backstory from the year 636 during an apparition of the Virgin Mary known as Our Lady of Boulogne.

The eleventh installment from my book, The Constant Procession. This installment goes into the Fatima apparitions of the Virgin Mary as witnessed by three children in Fatima, Portugal in 1917. The revealed concerns of the Virgin Mary included humanities choice to ignore prayer in favor of “might makes right.”

Two of the children, St Francisco Marto and his sister, who died during the Spanish flu epidemic, St Jacinta Marto, were acknowledged as saints by the Pope in Fatima on May 13, 2017. Their older cousin, Sister Lúcia dos Santos should follow to sainthood sometime in the future.

A quote from the CNA article: “The Chapels of Light are one of the quietest places for recollection, next to the grotto of the apparitions.”

After my experience at the baths, as I dried off, I found myself sitting on a bench at this very spot.

To experience the baths at this apparition site in Lourdes is intense and at the same time extremely humbling.

There are candles everywhere at this chapel area. It was a most remarkable experience.

A 14th century monk, Gregory Palamas observed about the Madonna that “While on earth, she harkened and obeyed heavenly things rather than things earthly.”

Also, in the words of an Orthodox Archbishop John Maximovitch who lived from 1896-1966: “The end of the earthly life of the Virgin Mary was the beginning of her greatness.”

308- The Constant Procession: Part 8

The eighth installment from my book, The Constant Procession.

Continuing from Our Lady of Laus and onto key apparitions during the early 1800’s in France and Greece. This is a period of time with tides of change during the French Revolution, that spills over to the Greek’s and their fight for freedom from the Ottomans.

 The “All Holy Lady of Good Tidings” makes an appearance on the Greek island of Tinos. In turn, this apparition becomes a key inspiration for the men and women of Greece to fight on for their independence.

 The next part of my book, takes you to the streets of Paris, when politics have gone mad with the frequent use of the guillotine, also known as, “the national razor.”

During this horrific time, “Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal” makes her appearance on a street, “Rue du Bac,” in Paris.

303- The Constant Procession: Part 3

Hello! This is Nikos Steves. I will be finishing up my new book entitled, The Very Fine Light over the summer. The book will be released in early fall!

You’ll be the first to HEAR and READ about THE NEW BOOK right here at Constant Procession.com!

And now here is Part 3 of my first book, ‘The Constant Procession’

There is more about the ‘Lady of Lourdes’ apparition story in this podcast. Initially the Lourdes seer is embraced. Though miracles start to occur, her credibility begins to come under fire from all directions.

And then, the next stop on my journey in the book is to a local apparition site.

Also, Pray for the People of Ukraine. Links to support their war effort can be found below.

302- The Constant Procession: Part 2

This is the 2nd audio installment of my book The Constant Procession. My book is a religious memoir about how some of the approved apparitions of the Virgin Mary have influenced history!

This installment digs deep into my discovery of the reason churches in post WW II America were named for the Madonna.

The inspiration for the writing of the book The Song of Bernadette came to life for an author trapped by Nazis in 1941 while he hid in Lourdes, France.

Beginning podcast of my book: 301-The Constant Procession: Part 1

Early and 70's book covers of The Song of Bernadette
1970’s version (L) and 1940’s version of The Song of Bernadette by Franz Werfel. Notice how the ‘dust jackets’ reflect the popular culture emphasis of each time period when books were printed.

Here is a very good review of The Song of Bernadette by author Christine Vincent- CatholicMom.com

1943 and Readers Digest book covers of The Song of Bernadette.

299- Being Late to Easter Day

I celebrated Easter services one week after the mainstream Easter celebration. This different date finds a person somewhat removed from the mainstream of life.

A calendar from October 1582 removing 11 days from the 5th to the 14th
October 1582 calendar, when they removed days from the calendar.

This year, the Eastern Orthodox Church’s Easter religious holiday was celebrated one week later than most other Christian Church’s. The reason is due to the fact that our church works off a different calendar than most other Christian church’s. And on our calendar, the day when Christ’ Passion occurred is different.
