Blessed art thou among women.

She was the first tabernacle to hold the body of Christ.

You are very kind, Easter A, but if you could be with me for a day or two, you'd know that I am far from "wonderful." In fact, I am, in so many ways, below ordinary!

John - Another "thank you" for all you do here on the blog. I know making the translations available make many happy.

Easter - Yes, John is so appreciated here. If it were left up to me I'm afraid there wouldn't be any translations. Thanks to you both.

Anonymous - I find that hard to believe.

Thank you for the beautiful holy card and the information about Our Lady of America. Please add to that as a link.

Please visit for more information about Our Lady of America - the only U.S. private revelation by the Blessed Virgin Mary which has complete canonical approval. promotes the devotion and preserves the site in Rome City, Indiana, where Our Lady first appeared to Sr. Mildred as Our Lady of America (in the Our Lady Mother of Mercy Chapel). Our Lady requested that America honor Her under the title Our Lady of America, the Immaculate Virgin, spread this devotion, and turn back toward purity. Our Lady requested that a statue of Her likeness as Our Lady of America be enthroned by the bishops in the National Shrine of the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C. She promised miracles greater than at Lourdes and Fatima if her requests were granted. She also promised that America would lead the world to peace if it returned to purity.

Not only can you find the messages and history of Our Lady of America on the website, but there are also many testimonies of documented conversions, and physical and spiritual miracles that continue in Rome City to this day. There are also many miraculous photos taken by pilgrims, and many people have witnessed the "Miracle of the Sun.” In May of 2008, I was blessed to witness the sun spinning along with 4 fellow pilgrims, following the weekly Friday Night Rosary.

After my first pilgrimage in July 2007, my health and mobility improved tremendously. For more than two years, I had been unable to walk without the aid of a walker (and required a motorized wheelchair for any distance) when I arrived at Sylvan Springs. But thanks to Our Lady of America, I no longer need any assistance for walking. My health has improved so dramatically that I am living testimony and people around me say I look and act like a different person.
Our Lady is interceding for us daily, and leading so many to Her Son our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Our Lady of America intercede for us.

In the Peace of Christ,
