Say the Rosary every day to bring peace to the world and the end of the war.”

– Our Lady of Fatima

The apparitions in Japan started on July 6th, 1973, when Sr. Agnes Sasagawa heard a voice coming from the statue of Mary in the chapel where she was praying. Over the course of two years, Sr. Agnes heard three messages from the Blessed Mother and had several visions. On January 4, 1975, the statue of the Blessed Virgin began to weep and continued at various intervals for the next six years for a total of 101 times.

“The only arms which will remain for you will be the Rosary and the Sign left by My Son. Each day recite the prayers of the Rosary. With the Rosary, pray for the Pope, the bishops and priests.”

The encounters with Our Blessed Mother in this small African village began on November 28, 1981, when sixteen-year-old Alphonsine Mumureke heard a voice call out to her and saw a great cloud of light while in her school cafeteria. Visions and messages continued for two years for Alphonsine and her classmates Nathalie Mukamazimpaka and Marie Claire Mukangango.

“Repent, repent, repent! When I tell you this, I speak also to all the others. Men of our times have emptied each thing of its true meaning. They commit a fault don’t recognize that he did wrong. Meditate about the Passion of Jesus, and on the deep Sorrows of His Mother. Recite the Rosary every day, and also the Rosary of the Seven Sorrows of Mary, to obtain the favor of repentance.”

A humble housewife and mother, Gladys Herminia Quiroga de Motta first noticed that her rosary beads were glowing on September 25, 1983. The visions that began on that day continued until February 11, 1990, the Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes. Gladys received more than 1,800 messages from the Virgin Mary, as well as 68 from Jesus, and bore the stigmata.

“Prayer, my daughter, prayer; how many mouths still remain closed, without saying at least a prayer that draws them nearer to the Lord. The Holy Rosary is the weapon to which the enemy fears the most; it is also the refuge of those who look for lightening their grief and it is the door to enter to My Heart. Glory to the Lord for the Light that He gives to the world.”

Bernardo Martinez was a dedicated and hardworking sacristan who experienced a Marian apparition while praying the rosary on May 8, 1980. The Blessed Mother gave Bernardo very clear instructions, saying “I want the Rosary to be prayed every day.” He worked hard to ensure that Our Lady’s request was met in his community.

“I have shown you the Glory of Our Lord and you people will acquire this if you are obedient to Our Lord, to the Lord’s Word; if you persevere in praying the Holy Rosary and put into practice the Lord’s Word.”
