Marian Apparition

From Ascension Glossary
The Marian Vision of Saint Bernard, by Fra Bartolommeo, circa 1504. Uffizi, Florence.

A Marian Apparition is a reported supernatural appearance by the Blessed Virgin Mary. The figure is often named after the town where it is reported, or on the sobriquet given to Mary on the occasion of the apparition.

Marian apparitions sometimes are reported to recur at the same site over an extended period of time. In the majority of Marian apparitions only one person or a few people report having witnessed the apparition. Exceptions to this include Zeitoun, and Assiut where thousands claimed to have seen her over a period of time.

Some Marian apparitions and their respective icons have received a Canonical coronation from the Pope, most notably Our Lady of Lourdes, Our Lady of Fátima, Our Lady of Međugorje, Our Lady of Guadalupe, Our Lady of Perpetual Succour, Our Lady of Manaoag, Our Lady of the Pillar, Our Lady of Walsingham, and many others.

Possibly the best-known apparition sites are Lourdes and Fátima Since 1862, over sixty medical cures associated with Lourdes have been certified as miraculous by the Catholic Church, which established its own Medical Bureau in 1883 to review and evaluate claims of cures. Although an independent study of cures reported in the twentieth century noted that the number of reported cures had declined over the years, likely due to advances in medical science as well as criteria that excluded some cures (such as cures of terminal illnesses) during a period of time, the results of the study published in 2012 concluded that some of the cures were "currently beyond our ken but still impressive, incredibly effective, and awaiting a scientific explanation.[1]

Lady of Fatima

Our Lady of Fátima, is a Catholic title of the Blessed Virgin Mary based on the famed Marian apparitions reported in 1917 by three shepherd children at the Cova da Iria, in Fátima, Portugal. The three children were Lúcia dos Santos and her cousins Francisco and Jacinta Marto.

Bishop José Alves Correia da Silva declared the events worthy of belief on 13 October 1930. On 13 May 1946, Pope Pius XII granted a canonical coronation to the venerated image enshrined at the Chapel of the Apparitions of Fátima via his apostolic legate, Cardinal Benedetto Aloisi Masella. On 11 November 1954, he raised the Sanctuary of Fátima to the status of a minor basilica by his papal brief Lucer superna.

The published memoirs of Lúcia dos Santos in the 1930s revealed two secrets that she claimed came from the Virgin while the third secret was to be revealed by the Catholic Church in 1960. The controversial events at Fátima gained fame due partly to elements of the secrets, prophecy and eschatological revelations allegedly related to the Second World War and possibly more global wars in the future, particularly the Virgin's alleged request for the Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.[2]

Lady of Lourdes

Our Lady of Lourdes is a Roman Catholic title of the Blessed Virgin Mary venerated in honour of the Marian apparitions that reportedly occurred in 1858 in the vicinity of Lourdes in France. The first of these is the apparition of 11 February 1858, when 14-year old Bernadette Soubirous told her mother that a "lady" spoke to her in the cave of Massabielle (a kilometre and a half (1 mi) from the town) while she was gathering firewood with her sister and a friend. Similar apparitions of the "Lady" were reported on seventeen occasions that year, until the climax revelation of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception took place.

In 18 January 1862, Pope Pius IX authorized Bishop Bertrand-Sévère Laurence to permit the veneration of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Lourdes. On 3 July 1876, the same Pontiff officially granted a Canonical Coronation to the image that used to be in the courtyard of what is now part of the Rosary Basilica. The image of Our Lady of Lourdes has been widely copied and reproduced in shrines and homes, often in garden landscapes. Soubirous was later canonized as a Catholic saint. [3]

Lady of Zeitoun

Our Lady of Zeitoun, also known simply as El-Zeitoun, Zeitun or rarely Our Lady of Light, was an alleged mass Marian apparition that is supposed to have occurred in the Zeitoun district of Cairo, Egypt, over a period of 2–3 years beginning on April 2, 1968.

Lady of Assiut

Our Lady of Assiut is the name given to a series of reported apparitions of the Virgin Mary in 2000 and 2001 in Assiut, Egypt.

Elaysian Living Waters, Healing Springs

Additionally, the reanimation of Solar Christ Mary in her 13th Dragon Queen form has been actively involved in the sequential activation of many “Notre Dame” Our Lady Gothic Cathedrals across the globe, purifying the sacred living waters existing beneath them sourcing from deep aquifers and natural mineral springs. Many Gothic Cathedrals are constructed on top of ancient sacred healing bathing temples that were originally built upon Dragon Nodes with natural spring grottos sanctified in the Holy Mother’s name by ancient Essenes, as the last of the Mary Magdalene Sophia lineages carried over this knowledge of the whereabouts of the remaining sacred healing waters in the Earth. The Cosmic Holy Mother’s living krystal waters in the ancient azure healing temples are infused with her high frequency charged sound particles of light passing through the natural formations of grotto spring water pools that appear in gorgeous ranges of pastel blue and violet colors. Ancient Essenes would utilize these running waters found in sacred springs for ritual purification bathing and baptism of the Inner Christ. This is a natural function of the Holy Mother to infuse sophianic sound tones into water, the Saint Maries-de-la-Mer as the organic medium of infusing sonoluminescence qualities into running spring water, seas and rivers, which includes the phenomenon that current science describes as Cherenkov Radiation.

As may be obvious, this ancient knowledge of drinking blessed water with healing properties and sacred mineral springs with purification bathing waters that were hidden underneath Our Lady Cathedrals, has been eroded over time. Sadly, many of these natural springs were filled with cement or trashed, in order to cover up and desecrate their healing properties and connection to the Holy Mother. This ancient knowledge of light infused into water is the source of many myths and stories describing the search for the mysterious fountain of youth, along with pure natural springs that were discovered over the past few hundred years and then became widely known for their magical healing properties. Today some are sites known for their Marian Apparitions, when “Our Lady” Mother Mary is described to appear to spiritual pilgrims during their prayers near caves, grottoes or running springs, where she tells them to drink and bathe in the healing waters, such as the story of the Lady of Lourdes spring water grotto in France.

Mainstream science attempts to mimic these same effects through Cherenkov Radiation experiments in order to harness its electrical power generated through nuclear reactors like the Large Hadron Collider, which obviously does not generate any healing effects to the planet, but instead produces harmful effects to the human electromagnetic field and ley lines.[4]
