379- St Louis De Monfort, A Devotion to Mary

St. Louis Marie de Montfort is known for his devotion to the Virgin Mary.

Illustration from St Bonaventure Catholic Church- stboncc.com

One of his most respect books in circulation today, True Devotion to Mary was “lost” for 150 years.

It seems that perhaps the “loss” of this work harbored a period of time when his peers considered St Monfort’s work not to be worth keeping around.

378- Theodore & Egwin; Forgotten Saints of England

St. Theodore of Tarsus, Archbishop of Canterbury and St. Egwin, Bishop of Worchester lived in England during the time when all Christian churches in Great Britian were unified as one body in Christ.

Saint Theodore of Canterbury created a religious governance that prefigured Parliament!

The Virgin Mary appeared to St Egwin in Evesham.

St Egwin then built the Evesham Abbey, the 3rd great monastery of England.

Henry VIII had it destroyed.

The ruins eventually became a stone quarry for villagers from the surrounding English countryside.

And today there remains only an arch of the once vibrant Christian community.

St Mary Mazzarello had a vision of a big building filled with orphaned girls.

She remembered this vision when St Bosco of the Salesians asked her to create the Daughters of Mary, Help of Christians (aka Salesian Sisters) to take care of abandoned young girls.

It is now a world-wide organization.

376- St John Bosco, called by Mary

St John Bosco sensed that the educator must not stay away from the boys’ exuberance as he himself had experienced as a child.

“Don” Bosco believed he must share it, organize it when it failed to develop by itself, and avoid anything that may prevent it.

Today the society he created, The Society of St Francis de Sales or the Salesians of Don Bosco can be found in over 125 countries around the world.

375- The New Marian Column of Prague

Once time while overseas several years ago, I literally stumbled on the “Marian Column” in Old Town Prague. At the time it did not appear in any tour guides, nor promotional materials.

Intrigued, I researched the story of the Marian Column of Prague.

It’s history, long hidden behind the Iron Curtain, in a country that up to this day is considered one of the least religious in the world was brought back to the square in 2020.

The original Marian Column erected in 1850 was destroyed by radicals following WWI.

This new column has been brought back to the square by citizen who wish to thank the Virgin Mary for her love for the people of the Czech Republic

374- The Lemonade Stand

This podcast acknowledges the 106th anniversary of the final Fatima apparition of the Virgin Mary on October 13, 1917.

And then, I take a bit of a departure from apparitions of the Virgin Mary in order to recall an recent experience to recognize the sometime surprising impressions one makes when taking the time to stop at a lemonade stand.

This is the seventeenth and final installment from my book, The Constant Procession.

My first book is a religious memoir about how some of the approved apparitions of the Virgin Mary have influenced history!

This final installment is about how the Ukrainian churches survived during the dark times when they were suppressed in the USSR.

They found refuge in lands far away thanks to the Ukrainian immigrants who moved to North America.

It was the faith, dedication and sacrifice of these Ukrainians that kept these oppressed churches alive.

The final chapter; Apparition sites where the Virgin Mary has appeared offer hope for a timeless mode of being for those in the constant procession…

370- The Constant Procession: Book 1, pt 15

This is the fifteenth installment of my Book, The Constant Procession. My first book is a religious memoir about how some of the approved apparitions of the Virgin Mary have influenced history!

 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.

I am often asked; “What did the Virgin Mary say?” In 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  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.”

This is the thirteenth installment of my Book, The Constant Procession.

My first book is a religious memoir about how some of the approved apparitions of the Virgin Mary have influenced history!

The episode continues with Chapters 22, 23 and 24.

In Chapter 22 entitled “Unheeded Prayers” 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. 

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. 

Chapter 24- Hot Pursuit in a Cold War brings out how the “Great Return” found fierce resistance in France as the communists gained control of the political machine. In Hungary however, the procession yielded fruit.

367- The Constant Procession: Book 1, pt 12

This is the twelfth installment of my Book, The Constant Procession.

My first book is a religious memoir about how some of the approved apparitions of the Virgin Mary have influenced history!

The episode continues around the time of WWI. The Fatima seer, Sister Lucia sent a message to the Pope.

What followed was a call for people world-wide to consecrate their hearts and minds to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

By the end of WWI, the reality was that many who died in the line of battle were the best and brightest of that generation. It suddenly created a vacuum of natural leaders all across the world. 

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

Culminating in WWII.

But then, the story of “Our Lady of the Great Return” in Chapter 21 tells of a phenomena that started in France during WWII. 

It gave people hope and became an ‘endless procession’ of sorts, as people marched through the streets all across France behind a very special statue of the Virgin Mary.

These marches started in 1942 and continuing through 1948.

Article from last July (2022) about a fire at Our Lady of Lourdes Apparition site- Catholic New Agency.com (Thanks to Michael Brown at SpiritDaily.org)

A quote from the CNA article: “The ‘Chapels of Light’ are one of the quietest places for recollection at this apparition site.”

A vista showing one stand of candles at the "Chapel of Light" location that is across the river from the Basilica at the Lourdes, France apparition site.

After my wife and I experience the baths, we found ourselves sitting on a bench at the ‘Chapels of Light’ area across the river from the Basilica.

There are candles everywhere at this chapel area. It was a most remarkable experience. My wife Rita (RIP 5.13.23)

A few candles at the "Chapel of Light" at the Lourdes, France apparition site.

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