THE LADY OF ALL NATIONS
On March 25, 1945 Our Lady appeared in Amsterdam to Ida Peerdeman (1996).
This was the first of 56 apparitions, which took place between 1945 and 1959.
On May 31, 2002, the local bishop came to the conclusion that the apparitions of Amsterdam are of supernatural origin. Our Lady appears under a new title,
The Lady of All Nations or The Mother of All Nations.
In this time she wants to be made known and loved by everyone under this title.
In a prophetic way, she gives, above all, an impressive insight about the situation in the Church and in the world. In the messages, Mary gradually reveals a plan with which God wants to save the world and prepare it for a new outpouring of the Holy Spirit.
Accordingly, she gives all peoples and nations an image and a prayer:
LORD JESUS CHRIST,
SON OF THE FATHER,
SEND NOW YOUR SPIRIT
OVER THE EARTH.
LET THE HOLY SPIRIT LIVE
IN THE HEARTS OF ALL NATIONS,
THAT THEY MAY BE PRESERVED
FROM DEGENERATION, DISASTER AND WAR.
MAY THE LADY OF ALL NATIONS,
THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY,
BE OUR ADVOCATE.
You will go through a great deal yet, in this century (May
31, 1955), Mary says. She promises, though, that if we pray her prayer,
degeneration, disaster and war may be staved off (Oct. 11, 1953) and spiritual
confusion may be conquered.
She has been sent directly in our time as the Lady of All
Nations so that through this prayer, she may deliver the world from a great
world catastrophe (May 10, 1953).
This prayer is therefore a decisive weapon in the fight against Satan. Since you concretely pray that the Holy Spirit come now at this moment, Satan consequently must vanish here and now. We are not praying vanish Satan! like an exorcism or Pope Leo XIIIs prayer to St. Michael the Archangel: through the divine power of God, cast into hell Satan, and all the evil spirits
Mary appears here as the COREDEMPTRIX in three ways: She stands, penetrated by Gods light, before the Cross of
her Son, with whom she is inseparably united.
She has a cloth wrapped around her, which she explains, Listen carefully to what this means. This is as the Loincloth of the Son. For I stand as the Lady before the Cross of the Son (April 15, 1951).
Again the Lady directs Idas attention to her hands and thereby reveals to her that she is MEDIATRIX OF ALL GRACE: Now look at my hands and describe what you see.
In the apparitions of Amsterdam, Our Lady wished to be
called by the title THE LADY OF ALL NATIONS. In 1996, in accord with the
Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, the Bishop of Haarlem-Amsterdam,
His Excellency, Henrik Bomers, together with his auxiliary bishop and later
successor, His Excellency, Jozef M. Punt, issued a decree ( Approbation of the title) in which they
permitted the public veneration of Mary under this title. If we consider that Mary mentions her new title more than
150 times in her messages, it must be of exceptional importance. Of course,
here is not the place to quote all of these passages, but some of the important
ones will help us understand more clearly why Mary waited until 1950 to reveal
her new title and what this title means. Already in the first message Mary announces, They will call
me The Lady, Mother (March 25, 1945), but that was not yet the complete
title. Only after Pius XII solemnly proclaimed the dogma of the Assumption of
Mary into Heaven on November 1, 1950, Our Lady presents herself immediately in
the next message with her new title, Child, I am standing upon this globe,
because I want to be called the Lady of All Nations (Nov. 16, 1950).
Our Lady explains why she never used this new name in the
five years that she had been appearing, How is it that this is entering the
world only now: The Lady of All Nations? Because the Lord has awaited this
time. The other dogmas had to precede, just as her life first had to precede the
Lady of All Nations. All the dogmas that preceded comprise the life and the
departure of the Lady. For the theologians this simple explanation will be
sufficient (Oct. 5, 1952).
Mary clarifies her new title in a previous sentence with the words of her son, At the departure of the Lord Jesus Christ, He gave Mary, to the nations For He spoke the words, Woman, behold your son; son, behold your mother. One act, and by this Miriam, or Mary, received this new title (Oct. 5, 1952).
