San Michel’s Alcove
San Michel’s Alcove provides information concerning the apparitions of Mary, the Mother of God…[those approved by the Roman Catholic Church and the reported apparitions still under investigation by the Vatican].
A Divine Plan
It was an eerie, foreboding summer and the evening of July 19th was no exception. An era of peace reigned over most of France during the first half of 1830; now, however, whispers of revolution were fueling the dark corners on the streets of Paris. In eight days, a revolution will run rampant throughout the city!
As is their custom, the nuns in the Sisters of Charity convent at 140 Rue du Bac retired very early. However, just before midnight, a young nun was awakened from a deep sleep by a child’s voice urgently calling her: “Sister; Sister; Sister!”
Rubbing the sleep from her eyes Sr. Catherine Labouré turned toward the voice and was amazed to see a young child, a little angel. He was pleading with her insistently: “Come to the chapel. Get up quickly and come to the chapel, the Blessed Virgin is waiting for you there!”
Perplexed, she instinctively arose, dressed, and was quickly escorted to the chapel by the angel. Upon their arrival she noticed that all the candles were lighted as though for a midnight Mass, yet the chapel appeared to be empty. However, as soon as they entered, the angel said: “Here is the Blessed Virgin. Here she is!”
Hearing the rustle of a dress Catherine glanced in that direction and was startled to see the Blessed Virgin walking toward the spiritual director’s chair in front of the altar. The moment she sat down the angel whispered: “The Blessed Mother wishes to speak with you.”
Catherine immediately went over to the director’s chair and, kneeling on an altar step, placed her hands in Mary’s lap. She remained there, talking with Mary for the next two hours. Then, Our Lady told her that she “has a mission…”
Thus began a series of appearances of the Mother of God in various places throughout the world, culminating in a rather remote village in a Communist country in 1981. As we shall see, Pope John Paul II had been praying to Our Lady, pleading with her to appear in a nation behind the iron curtain where her voice would be heard.
Down through the annals of time the Eternal Father guided His people, taking them out of their caves to dwell on farms and, eventually, in cities throughout the world, testing them as surely as gold is tried by fire.
He continued to teach them through the promised Redeemer, Jesus, “the Word was made flesh.” Now, in these latter days, signifying the end of the present era and the beginning of a new one, He also instructs them through Mary, the Mother of Christ, who dearly loves each one of us.
She is intent upon giving her final instructions that will complete the countdown to a new era: a springtime of renewal wherein the survivors live in the peace and love the Eternal Father originally bestowed on their progenitors, Adam and Eve.
This is the mission the Eternal Father has entrusted to His most beloved daughter for
“All Ages Will Call Me Blessed” (Lk 1:48)
Gerard B. Tall, Jr., T.O.Carm.
“I have come to tell the world that God exists. He is the fullness of life and to enjoy that fullness you must return to God. I am the Blessed Virgin Mary. I am your Mother.”
“God has chosen each one of you in order to use you in His great plan for the salvation of mankind. You are not able to comprehend how great your role is in God’s design.”
Grace and Mercy
We are living in a transitional time, a period between the end of one era and the beginning of another. Accompanied with uncertainty and social instability, this period is often replete with extraordinary “Gracia et Misericordia.”
Our Lady said this time of grace is given to comprehend and live the messages she presents to the world. To further that end she has entrusted Mirjana – a visionary in Medjugorje – with ten specific messages that she is to reveal to the world: secrets that foretell the “future of the world.”
She hints at a timeline: “At this moment, according to Our Lady, we are living in a time of grace. After this will come the time of the secrets and the time of her triumph.”
Our Lady is doing all she can to help us during this time of grace. The time remaining is obviously limited; therefore, she encourages our assistance, reminding us: “Without your prayers, my dear children, I cannot help you to understand what my Lord has given me to give you.”
Then, she told Mirjana, “I have come to call the world to conversion for the last time. I will never again appear on Earth in this way!”
As we merge Our Lady’s words into our daily lives, we await the unfolding of the great plan that, additionally, contains the revelation of the ten messages, termed secrets. Each one will be publicly announced to the world several days before the specific event occurs.
During the fulfillment of the third secret a permanent sign, directly from God, will appear on Apparition Hill. This will serve as proof of Mary’s appearances.
We wait in anticipation, then, for the triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary – a proclamation to be celebrated throughout the world – thereby fulfilling Our Lady’s promise to the seers in Fatima, Portugal, in 1917: “In the end my Immaculate Heart will triumph!”
