Constant Procession PODCASTS

100- Pt 8; Tinos then Paris

Part 8- This 100th Installment covers key apparitions during the early 1800’s in France and Greece at the time when the tides of change during the French Revolution spills into Ottoman controlled Greece as the “All Holy Lady of Good Tidings” makes an appearance on the Grecian island of Tinos which becomes a key inspiration for the men and women of Greece to fight on for their independence.

The next part of this 100th installment takes you to the streets of Paris when politics failed as the guillotine continued (aka “national razor”) in full swing and so “Our Lady of the Miraculous Medals” also appeared there.

88- Mary and Walsingham

The pilgrimage site Our Lady of Walsingham is known as England’s Nazareth and it became a wonderful place where for five centuries people went on pilgrimages. Now, after a 400 year pause, people once again are able to go on pilgrimages thanks to the Virgin Mary’s visit in England.

It all came about thanks to a pious woman, Richeldis de Faverches, who experienced an apparition of the Virgin Mary in the year 1061, in the village of Walsingham, near Norfolk, just a few miles from the sea.
