Happy Birthday, Dear Mother Mary!

I would like to remind us all that August 5 is a special day! In August of 1984 Our Lady shared a secret with the visionaries. She told them that her actual birth date is August 5! And in 1984 it was her 2000th birthday! The visionaries recall that Our Lady asked them to spend 3 days, fasting and praying for her intentions so that on her birthday she could receive the gifts she desired.

The visionaries complied with her request. For three days they fasted, and their prayer group fasted, and prayed. During those three days the visionaries say that Our Lady was very joyful and she repeated to them: “I am very happy, continue, continue, continue to pray and to fast!!!”

Our Lady also told the visionaries “The priest who will hear confession will have great joy on that day.”

When August 5th arrived there were over 70 priests present, hearing confessions without rest, and there were a great number of conversions. It was reported that the stoles of the priests who were hearing confession on that day were dripping with the tears of those confessing.

When Our Lady appeared, she told the visionaries, “Never in my life have I cried with sorrow, as I have cried this evening with joy. Thank you!”

Like a flower when it blooms, and full of joy, Our Lady also said: “Continue, continue, open your hearts, ask God and I will ask for you.”

It seems that Our Lady’s intentions were for the conversion of her children! And she received many souls back into the life of grace that day!!

Let’s give Our Lady a birthday present today!! Pray an extra Rosary in her honor and for her intentions, especially for the conversion of her children. We love you, dearest Mother Mary!!

In Jesus, Mary, and Joseph!
