News – Our Lady of America at Ground Zero

By September 9, 2007Announcement, News

Ave Maria!

??

The Statue of Our Lady of America will be at Ground Zero in Lower Manhattan on Tuesday 9/11 on the 6th annual commemoration of the terrorist attack on the Twin Towers. This is the same statue that was blessed by Archbishop Burke at the November 2006 Bishop’s Meeting of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) and was until yesterday enthroned at the Old Cathedral of St. Louis, MO. The crowds attending the devotion to Our Lady of America are expected to be large because for the first time the actual Ground Zero site will be closed to those coming to the commemoration. A large part of the NYPD and Fire Department are already shifting their attention to the devotions we are holding to Our Lady of America. This is understandable because Our Lady of America made dire predictions of what would happen if America did not cease to be purveyors of pornography and instead start to be promoters of purity. With the failure of raw military power to quell terrorism in Iraq and the spectre of a nuclear Iran, those who have suffered most from the last terrorist attack are seeing the need to take the apparitions of Our Lady seriously, to get back to God and purity, in order to fend off something worse.

Old St. Peter’s on 22 Barclay St. adjacent to Ground Zero. The day before, Monday, the statue will be paraded around Ground Zero in a vintage 1958 Mack fire truck called “World Trade Center Number One” which was restored for the purpose of commemorating the Firemen and Policemen that heroically gave up their lives to save those trapped inside the towers. Several fire engines from New Jersey and New York and a large Police escort will accompany the motorcade. On 9/11 the day will start at 10am in Old St. Peters when the statue will be processed to the portico on Church Street overlooking Ground Zero. The Rosary will be recited, one mystery every hour, 11am Joyful, 12noon Luminous, 1pm Sorrowful, 2pm Glorious and then 3pm will be the Chaplet of Divine Mercy. The statue will then be carried by the fire truck to St. Patrick’s Cathedral at 460 Madison Ave arriving between 4 and 5pm, where it will be processed inside for further devotions.

The Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate will be on site With Fr. Peter Fehlner and an Air Maria camera crew. Unfortunately there is not a possibility of a live broadcast on this short of notice. Also in attendance will be Fr. Basil Cole, O.P., internationally recognized theologian and author and long time promoter of Our Lady of America. This will be the beginning of a series of Masses and devotions in various parishes through out the New York, New Jersey area over the next month, many of which will be officiated by the Franciscans of the Immaculate.

The spontaneity with which this event has come together, overcoming seemingly insurmountable obstacles, suggests that this is the will of Our Lady of America, that she take center stage.

Ave Maria!

    This is a wonderful occurence for America and for all people affected by the attacks of September 11th. Only with the Blessed Mother’s intercession will we prevail over the evil that manifested itself on that day and since. I pray that the American Bishops will do what she has asked them to do.
    I am from Oregon and I hope that someday the Our Lady of
    America Statue can come to our part of the country, as well. We are in real need of her presence here also.

    I’m so happy about Our Lady of America. I bought her statue from the Sisters a few years ago, had her blessed, and enthroned her in our home. I felt like crying tears of joy even though I just read this article tonight at 9:30 PM. Love you so much, Blessed Mother of America.

    Greetings in Christ Jesus
    Let us pray that America will embrace it’s mother and respond to her call. We can all do our part by studying the messages of Our Lady of America in the booklet approved by the beloved Archbishop Leibold of Cincinnati. Have a good confession,and try to live that interior purity Our Lady is so concerned about for us. Wear the medal requested of by Our Lady and give them to your family. And while your at it ,send the good and faithful servant of Our Blessed Mother ,Sister Joseph Terese, a prayer of thanksgivng for her faithfullnes and trust in Our Ladys promise.

    To “The Anchoress”
    Our Lady of America is not very well known. You’re not the only one. I heard about it only a few years back when searching for Real Estate. Becasue it was not so well known, I thought perhaps it wasn’t real, just another one of those phony stories. But Apparently it was real, it had the Imprimata and Archbishop Burke in MO, studied the messages and he gave the Canonical Approval, just a few months back! (I think in April ’07) So Our Lady of America has just come to light for everyone, except for the fortunate few, or maybe the unfortunate few who have been worrying or wondering when this will take off as Our Lady requested. What we see happening is Our Lady working, she is so fast. We should pray for Her intentions. God Bless You and spread the word! We are so blessed to be chosen to do Her task! It truely is unbelieveable!

    Welcome Dear Mother Lady of America, Finally to New York,

    Today Sept 15 is the Feast Day of Our Lady of Sorrows. One could almost see a tear on your chin while in St. Patrick’s Catheral. Please God, America will turn your tears into smiles full of joy and happiness once again. May we turn the clock back to the 50’s when you first appeared to Sr. Mildred, when Our Nation was Under God and happy to be so. May ALL our American Bishops listen to your simple request to be place in the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception in Washington DC. We love you dear Mother and we ask your pardon for all the wrong we have done as a people and Nation of God. Pray for us dear Mother as we are in great need of God’s forgiveness and mercy!

  • We had the privilege of paying three separate visits to Our Lady of the Angelus in Rego Park this week, and you could feel Our Lady’s presence among us.

    My children, especially, will never forget this blessed week!

    Our Lady of America, pray for us!
