2) The next twenty-four messages, 1951-1954: Following the proclamation of the dogma of the Assumption of Mary into Heaven on November 1, 1950, the messages take on a new direction. The great plan by which the Lady wishes to save the world gradually unfolds. She dictates a prayer which, together with her image, is to be spread throughout the whole world, and she states that this-her ‘worldwide action’-is the direct preparation for the final Marian dogma: Mary Coredemptrix, Mediatrix, and Advocate. In numerous messages she explicates the meaning and importance of this prayer, image, and dogma, and she promises that the dogma will bring about a completely new outpouring of the Holy Spirit.
On November 15, 1950, fifteen days following the proclamation of the dogma of the Assumption of Mary into Heaven, the Lady appeared standing on the globe, and for the first time she mentioned her new title: ‘The Lady of All Nations’. In the following year, 1951, the Lady dictated her short and simple prayer, directed to the Lord Jesus Christ, requesting the sending of the Holy Spirit. She gave instructions for the painting of her image and started to speak about the final Marian dogma: Coredemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate.
The first and greatest commandment: In many messages the Lady speaks to the Church and to all Christians. Time and again she stresses the importance of the great commandment: Love. Thus she says: “The first and greatest commandment for humanity is Love. One who possesses love will honor one’s Lord and Master in His creation, that is to say, see the greatness of His creation, including the Sacrifice. One who possesses love will do to other people everything one would like done to oneself. Love is the first and the greatest commandment which Christ gave” (message 35). The Lady admonishes Christians, telling them to be broad-minded and open-hearted; she continually calls for unity. Love alone can help this shattered world.
Message of March 20, 1953
The time has come – I see the Lady of All Nations standing before me. She says, “Say that the time has now come. The time is here, the time in which the world shall know that I have come here as the Lady of All Nations. I want this to be made known to the world now. Tell this to the Pope’s Sacrista.(1)This is my message to him. You shall not fear anything. He shall read all the messages and pass them on to the Holy Father. Do not be afraid, child. You will get there. Have no fear. For I am the one bringing this message. The time has come.” Now the Lady pauses for a long time and then says, “53, that is the year of the Lady of All Nations.”
The daily Miracle – Now the Lady gazes before herself for a long time, and then she says, “Before the Lord Jesus Christ returned to the Father, before the Sacrifice of the Cross began, the Lord Jesus Christ gave a daily Miracle to the peoples of the whole world.” Now the Lady casts a searching glance over the globe and says very slowly and questioningly, “How many are there …”––and she pauses for a moment––“who experience this great Miracle? They pass this great Miracle by. The daily Sacrifice must come again into the midst of this degenerate world.”
Pope Pius XII – Then it is as if the Lady is gazing into the distance, and she says, “And now I speak to the Holy Father.” Now I see Pope Pius XII before me in a room with a lot of papers around him. The Lady says, “You have done a lot. Now the Lady of All Nations asks you once again to carry out everything that still needs to be done. He knows what I mean. The Holy Father shall prepare the Marian dogma of the Coredemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate. She will assist in this.”
The predictions of the Lady– The Lady waits again for a long time, gazing into the distance. Then she says, “In order to prove that I am the Lady of All Nations, I said: great powers will fall; politico-economic struggle will arise; watch out for the false prophets; pay attention to the meteors; there will be disasters; there will be natural disasters; we are facing great decisions; we are facing heavy pressure.”
True peace – Now the Lady gazes before herself as if into a depth. Then she says very slowly and clearly, “53. Nations of Europe, unite! It is the Lady of All Nations who is calling this out to you. Not to defeat your enemy, but to win over your enemy. Just as you should be united politically, so must you be united in the true Holy Spirit. Heavy pressure is hanging over the world. Your enemy is lying in wait. Church of Rome, seize your opportunity. It is modern humanism, realism, socialism and communism which have the world in their grip.” I then see the world with all those groups of people on it, and, so to speak, an enormous hand clasping it. The Lady says, “Listen to the Lady, who wants to be your Mother. Pray, nations, that your sacrifice may find favor with the Lord. Pray, nations, that the true Holy Spirit may come. Pray, nations, that the Lady of All Nations may be your Advocate.” Then the Lady says very slowly and clearly, “And now the Lady of All Nations promises to grant true peace. But the nations, together with the Church––understand well––together with the Church, will have to pray my prayer in this year. Tell this to the Sacrista. Say that the time has now come. Great world events are still to come.”
The new church. The altars – Now the Lady pauses and it is as if she is changing her place. Then she says, “Now follow me where I am going.” It is as if I am going along a road together with the Lady. We arrive at a meadow and a few trees. I see the Lady standing as in a haze above that meadow. She says, “You see me standing here in the meadow.” Suddenly I recognize the meadow as a familiar piece of land at the Wandelweg, (2) near the place where we live. “This is where the new church is going to be.” It is as if I am entering that church with her. The Lady says, “On the high altar the Sacrifice with the Cross, the daily Miracle.” I now see the high altar. The Lady points at the tabernacle, which has a small crucifix on it. She says, “At the same level, to the left, the gospel side, will be the altar of the Lady of All Nations. On the epistle side, the altar of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Notice well, at the same level as the Sacrifice.” Now the Lady points again to the high altar, and I see the three altars adjoining on the same level, as if they were forming one large altar. Behind the side altars I see the images again, but vaguely and veiled.
Amsterdam, the place of the Sacrament – Then the Lady says, “I have chosen the Dominican fathers for this. The donor shall place the image there. The image has to come to Amsterdam soon. I have chosen Amsterdam as the place of the Lady of All Nations. It is also the place of the Sacrament.(3) Understand all of this well.” Next I see a Eucharistic procession. Among the many people participating I also see priests. One of these priests is walking in front with the Blessed Sacrament. The procession is coming from the old downtown, from the Begijnhof, (4) and going in the direction of the place the Lady showed me at the Wandelweg.
She will save the world – Then the Lady says, “The outspreading shall go through the monasteries to all priests, to all peoples. Dominicans, be well aware of what you have in your hands.” The Lady says the latter with emphasis. “Your spiritual director shall see to it. Do not be afraid. It is Mary, the Lady of All Nations, who is bringing this message.” The Lady pauses again for a moment. Then she says clearly and slowly, “Under this title she will save the world.” Then the Lady goes away very slowly.

Message of May 10, 1953
Special message for the Pope – The Lady is standing before me. She says, “I have come today to bring a special message. Ask the Holy Father (1) to pray the prayer––which Mary as Coredemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate, under the title ‘The Lady of All Nations’, has given to the world––and to lead the nations in praying it. Tell him: apostle of the Lord Jesus Christ, teach your peoples this simple yet profound prayer. It is Mary, the Lady of All Nations, who asks this of you. You are the shepherd of the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ. Tend your sheep. Know well, great threats are hanging over the Church, are hanging over the world. Now the moment has come for you to speak of Mary as Coredemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate, under the title ‘The Lady of All Nations’. Why is Mary asking this of you? Because she has been sent by her Lord and Creator so that, under this title and through this prayer, she may deliver the world from a great world catastrophe. You know that Mary wishes to come as the Lady of All Nations. She is now asking that the people may hear this title from you, the Holy Father. The Pope’s Sacrista (2) shall give this message, as the other ones, to the Holy Father. Through this prayer the Lady will save the world. I repeat this promise once more.”
Pray, nations – Now the Lady pauses for a long time, and I see the globe rotating under her feet. It is as if big, heavy clouds were hanging about it, and the Lady is looking at them. Then she says, “Now I am speaking to all nations of the world.” With great reverence the Lady now joins her hands, as if she were praying. “Pray, nations, that your sacrifice may find favor with the Lord. Nations, turn back and try to find your simple faith. Acknowledge your Creator and be grateful. This is what humanity no longer knows.”
The false spirit – “The false spirit is ruling the world. Modern paganism, humanism, atheism, modern socialism and communism are ruling the world. Beware of the false prophets. The Lady of All Nations cannot repeat this enough, nor warn of it sufficiently. People, listen! It is the same Lord who is sending me to warn you, the same Lord who was once sacrificed for this modern humanity as well. You do not know what great powers are threatening this world. And now I am speaking not only of modern humanism, atheism, modern socialism and communism; there are yet quite different powers threatening this world. Nations, search for truth. Nations, unite. Without your having known, the Lady has been coming for eight years already, in order to protect you from it. 53 is the year of the Lady of All Nations. 53 is the year in which she, under this title, has to be made known among the nations. 53 is the year in which great world events and world catastrophes will happen and threaten. This is why the Lady asks you to pray this prayer. Spread it out as much as possible.”
Amsterdam, the focal point – “Now I am speaking to your bishop: have the Lady of All Nations church built on the place I pointed out in Amsterdam.” Then the Lady pauses for a moment, gazing into the distance. Then she says very clearly and slowly, “Marian thought will become more prominent in this time. Amsterdam will become the focal point of the Lady of All Nations. There, through this image, the nations will become acquainted with the Lady of All Nations and, under this title, they will ask her to obtain unity, and unity among the nations. This image will precede the final Marian dogma. First this image shall come to Amsterdam. Your spiritual director and all who can take part shall see to the outspreading. It must become one large community, the guidance of which I give to the Dominican fathers. Let them be aware of what I am placing in their hands.”
The Lady is taking care of everything – Then the Lady pauses again. I tell her that I am afraid to pass on this message, but she smiles and says, “Child, do not be afraid to make this message known. You are the instrument. The Lady is taking care of everything.” And then I see the Lady going slowly away.
(1) As the Lady said this, the visionary saw a Pope, but not Pope Pius XII.
(2) See footnote 52.
Message of October 11, 1953
Degeneration, disaster and war – I see the Lady standing before me. She says, “Mary, the Lady of All Nations, has been sent today in order once again to warn the world, the Church of Rome, and all peoples of degeneration, disaster and war. The world is living in degeneration. Disasters are yet to come. Peoples are still living in war.”
The Lady will bring peace – Then the Lady gazes before herself and says very slowly and clearly, “The year 53, that is the year in which the Lady of All Nations must be brought into the world.” For a long time the Lady remains silent, and then she says, “The Lady of All Nations will be allowed to bring peace to the world. Yet she must be asked for it under this title. The Lady of All Nations will assist the Church of Rome. The Church of Rome, the community, shall invoke Mary, the Mother of the Lord Jesus Christ, under this new title, ‘The Lady of All Nations’. They shall pray my prayer against degeneration, disaster and war, and bring it among all nations. I shall help the Church of Rome, the community. The nations shall invoke me under this title.”
The Redeemer and the Coredemptrix of all nations – The Lady gazes before herself again for a long time. Then she says clearly and with emphasis, “The Lord is the Redeemer of all nations. Mary, the Mother, was chosen from the beginning as Coredemptrix. She became Coredemptrix at the departure of the Lord Jesus Christ to the Father. She became Mediatrix and Advocate of all nations.” The Lady pauses again for a moment and then says, “Because Mary was destined as Coredemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate, she comes now in this time as the Lady of All Nations. Because Mary is given the title ‚Lady of All Nations’, she has come under this title to different places, to different countries.”
Destined for the world – Then the Lady gazes before herself and says, “The Lady, who has to bring peace, came and gave her prayer in the country where Satan reigned. (1) The Lady, who comes to bring peace, gave her words through this instrument in a country in which peace has always been desired. (2) The Lady of All Nations is not destined for one country, for one place, but is destined for the world, the peoples. This image, however, will go to Amsterdam, and that, at the end of 53. It will temporarily be brought to a chapel or church. Later it will be transferred to the Lady of All Nations church. My directions for this I have already given, and they are to be followed strictly. The Lady of All Nations will give a few more messages. Her time is nearly at an end.”
The crowning of Mary – Now the Lady pauses for a moment and then says very clearly and slowly, “Then the great work begins: the crowning of Mary, the proclamation of the dogma of Coredemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate. First, however, let the Church and the nations invoke Mary under her new title and pray her prayer so that degeneration, disaster and war may be staved off from this world. If they do so, the nations of Europe will breathe a sigh of relief after 54.” And now the Lady looks over the globe on which she is standing and says, “Then the great worldwide task follows.”
Black and white sheep – Then the Lady looks about her, and, pointing at the sheep, she says, “Look at my black sheep.” I then see lots of black sheep. Separated from them I see white sheep on the opposite side. The Lady warns very seriously, “White sheep, beware. The time is still here in which all of you can cooperate to achieve unity.” As she says this, I see those two groups of sheep changing into two groups of people, black people and white people, standing apart from one another.
The crowning of the Mother of the Lord – Then the Lady says, “Church of Rome, the Lady of All Nations will come only a few more times. She is still warning about the false prophets. Read carefully the messages the Lady brought you. Sacrista of the Pope, (3) pass these messages on.” The Lady says this with great emphasis. Now the Lady raises her forefinger as if in warning and says, “Holy Father,(4) you have a great task to accomplish before you are taken up among Us. The Lady tells you once again: carry through with the plans that you have worked out. See to the final dogma, the crowning of the Mother of the Lord Jesus Christ, the Coredemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate. In 54 you are to bring this new title among the nations. See to those countries in which the Lord Jesus Christ is being persecuted. This can and will become a great world action, above which Mary will stand as the Lady of All Nations. I am helping; I shall be allowed to help the world and peoples through my Lord.”
Mary takes responsibility – Then her forefinger goes down, and the Lady is standing in her usual position again. She pauses for a moment and then says, “And now I speak to your bishop: you should understand why I speak to the Holy Father and the Sacrista. This action is not for one country; this action is for all nations.” While the Lady says this, I first see our country, the Netherlands, lying before me. The Lady then shakes her head ‘no’. Next I see the whole world before me, and on it all those nations. The Lady says, “You, however, help in your country for the spreading of this prayer and for the spreading of these messages. Mary takes responsibility for it. You know she said that the painting is to be entrusted to the care of the Dominican Fathers. You know she said that the offerings are to be used not only for the Dominicans but for all the needs of the Church as well. Bring Mary as the Lady of All Nations into your country. The great world action will begin from there. The time has now come and it is very short. Mary is standing here as the Mother who wants to help her children. Ask and she will help you under this new title.” Now the Lady slowly disappears.
(1) The prayer was given to the visionary while she was staying in Germany.
(2) The Netherlands.
(3) See Footnote 52.
(4)As the Lady said this, the visionary saw very clearly Pope Pius XII standing before her.
Message of December 3, 1953
The powers of hell – As I am praying before the image, the Lady suddenly comes to life. It is as if she steps out of the painting, and then I see her as usual with an immense light around her. I hear her say, clearly and earnestly, “Do not be afraid. It was my intention that this image still be here at the inauguration of the Marian year. After that it will go to Amsterdam.” (1) Now the Lady pauses for a moment, gazing before herself. Then I feel something terribly horrid coming around the Lady. She says, “The powers of hell will break loose.” Next it is as if I heard thunder and terrible noise about her. But then the Lady smiles and says, “They will not, however, defeat the Lady of All Nations.” As the Lady says these words, an immensely bright light comes all about her, such that it hurts my eyes.
(1) The painting of the Lady of All Nations was still in Germany when the visionary received this message at the beginning of the new Church year. By the end of December 1953, however, it was transferred to Amsterdam and temporarily placed in the rectory of St. Thomas Church, a Dominican church on Rijn Street (see also Appendix II). The Marian year of 1954 was proclaimed by Pope Pius XII in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the proclamation of the dogma of the Immaculate Conception.
Message of April 4, 1954
Old thoughts – I see the Lady standing there with a very serious look on her face. She says to me, “Here I am again. Listen carefully! From the beginning, the Handmaid of the Lord was chosen to be the Coredemptrix. Tell your theologians that they can find everything in their books.” Now I see an old library with lots of books. The Lady points this out to me. She pauses for a moment and smiles to herself as if inwardly amused. Nearly whispering, she says, “I am not bringing a new doctrine. I am now bringing old thoughts.”
The Immaculate Conception – The Lady pauses again and then says, “Because Mary is Coredemptrix, she is also Mediatrix, she is also Advocate. Not only because she is the Mother of the Lord Jesus Christ, but––and mark this well––because she is the Immaculate Conception. Theologians, I ask you: do you still have objections to this dogma? You will be able to find these words and thoughts. I ask you to work for this dogma. No, do not be afraid! A fight will break out. They, the others, will attack you; but the simplicity of this dogma lies in these last thoughts which Mary, the Lady of All Nations, gives you today. Fight for and ask for this dogma. It is the crowning of your Lady.” The Lady says all of this with emphasis on almost every word.
The Lady and the Holy Spirit – The Apostles – Then she gazes before herself for a long time. She has a peculiar expression on her face; it is as if she looks like Mary of long ago, when she was still in the world. Then she says, “The Lady, the Handmaid of the Lord, was chosen and made fruitful by the Holy Spirit.” Now the Lady pauses and I see a haze, a radiant veil coming about her. Then she says, very slowly, “The Lady was chosen. She was also to be present when the Holy Spirit was received. The Holy Spirit had to come over the Apostles,” and, raising her forefinger, the Lady says with emphasis, “the first theologians! For this reason, the Lord wanted His Mother to be present there. His Mother, the Lady of All Nations, at the departure of her Son became the Lady of All Nations, the Coredemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate in the presence of one Apostle, one theologian as witness. For he had to care for the Mother. She had to care for her Apostles.” As she says these last words, I first see someone from former times standing beside her, a young man in a long garment. Then that person is gone and I see several priests standing about her.
Keystone of Marian thought – Now the Lady looks at me and says with emphasis, “This is the last time that the Lady will speak about this dogma. She will return, but for other matters. Tell your theologians, however, that now they have everything in their hands. Now they have to fulfill the will of the Lord Jesus Christ. This dogma must come as a keystone of Marian thought. Tell the theologians that the Lady of All Nations wants to see this fulfilled.”
The Pope – The Sacrista – Now the Lady spreads out her arms as if she were holding them protectively over something. Then I see the Holy Father, Pope Pius XII. The Lady says, “I will assist the Holy Father. Mark my words well. He will receive the strength yet to prepare everything. Many changes are to come.” Now I clearly see the Lady standing above St. Peter’s, and everything there seems to be spinning around. The Lady says, “The Holy Father is to carry out his lofty plan as quickly as he can! Tell him that the Lady of All Nations has helped him and will stand by him with the strength he needs. The Holy Father knows everything already. The Lady will give him the strength he needs.” Now the Lady looks very compassionately at Pope Pius XII. Very softly and almost pityingly she says, “He knows what he has.” Then the Lady brings her hands back to their usual position and says with emphasis, “Tell the Sacrista that everything will turn out fine. He shall act and carry through with this cause, in the way the Lady asks of him.”
Message for the bishop – Now the Lady looks at me again and smiles. Moving her finger to and fro, she says, “Now for your bishop. You shall ask him to make known the prayer and the messages.” I then see a bishop. I do not know which one. I say to the Lady, “He won’t do it; I am so frightened about having to say that.” The Lady looks at me compassionately, and she says, smiling, “Do not be afraid, child, but simply ask this. Tell him that the time has now come. He can give consent that it is my prayer. He can give consent to the building of the church. The signs are in my words––tell him that. Tell him also that the Lady wants her image to be placed in public now, and with it the words that the prayer comes from his Mother Mary, who wants to be his Lady of All Nations, too. Tell him: Mary is taking full responsibility for this. Later I will give more signs, when my words have ceased. I shall return and speak to the nations. All of this had to precede.”
The hand of Satan – Then the Lady gazes before herself very seriously. Around the globe on which she is standing, it is as if I would see heavy clouds going by, while the globe is spinning around. The Lady points at that globe and says very sadly, “Look at the world. Mark well what I am going to tell you.” Now the Lady holds up her right hand, opened towards me. I see a large die lying in it. Then the Lady moves that hand as if she were shaking it over the world. Suddenly the scene changes. I now see a very different hand, more like a claw, which leaves me with a horrid, ghastly impression. In the claw, too, there is a die. The Lady says, “Satan’s hand is passing over the whole world, holding a die. Do you know, Church, Community, what this means? Satan is still the prince of this world. He holds on to everything he can. That is why the Lady of All Nations had to come now, in this time. For she is the Immaculate Conception and thus the Coredemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate. These three thoughts in one. Theologians, do you hear this well?” And it is as if the Lady would put three parts of something into one another, into one whole. Then she says, “The Lady had to bring her prayer now over this satanic world. For the Holy Spirit is still to come over the peoples. Understand this message well. Pray my prayer then, peoples, that the Holy Spirit shall really and truly come.” At this last sentence the Lady held up her hands, folded, as if to show people how they should pray.
Sacrifice and fight – Then the Lady pauses again, and she looks at me very seriously, yet with a smile. She says, “And you, child, you are afraid to pass on all of this? Then the Lady tells you: let them come with all their needs, spiritual and bodily. The Lady is here and she will bring them back and help them. Make a sacrifice of your life. Tell your spiritual director that the Lord always chooses the weak for His exalted plans. He can be at ease.” Now the Lady gazes into the distance and says, “And to all the others: work on; fight for the Lady of All Nations, who must come in this time. I will help them. I will return on May 31st.” And then the Lady goes away very slowly
Message of May 31, 1954, Feast of Mary, Mediatrix of All Grace
Ask for this dogma – “Here I am again. The Coredemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate is now standing before you. I have chosen this day––on this day the Lady will be crowned. Theologians and apostles of the Lord Jesus Christ, listen carefully. I have given you the explanation of the dogma. Work for and ask for this dogma. You are to supplicate the Holy Father for this dogma. The Lord Jesus Christ has done great things and will give all of you even more in this time, in this twentieth century.”
On this date – “On this date the Coredemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate will receive her official title as ‘The Lady of All Nations.’ Mark well, these three thoughts in one act. These three.” Now the Lady shows me three fingers and moves her other hand around herself, and then it is as if a haze, a radiant veil, is coming about her. “And now I let your theologians see these three thoughts, these three thoughts in one act. I say this twice because there are some who want only one thought. The Holy Father will agree to the former. You, however, shall help him to get there. Understand all of this well.”
The day of the Lady’s coronation – Now, all of a sudden, it is as if I were standing with the Lady above the dome of a big church. As we enter, I hear the Lady say, “I am taking you there. Relate what I let you see and hear.” We are now in a very big church, in St. Peter’s. I see lots of cardinals and bishops gathered there. Then the Pope enters. It is a Pope I do not know. He is being carried in a kind of chair, but later he continues on foot. People cheer; the choir begins to sing. Now the Holy Father is announcing something in a language I do not understand, while holding up two fingers. All at once the Lady stands on the globe again. She smiles and says, “Child, thus have I let you see what is the will of the Lord Jesus Christ. This day will become the coronation of His Mother, the Lady of All Nations, who once was Mary.”
The Lady stayed with her Apostles – Now the Lady remains standing without saying anything, as she gazes far into the distance. This lasts a while and then she says, “And the Lady stayed with her Apostles until the Spirit came.” While she says this, that peculiar change comes over her face again; it is as if she were speaking from out of former times. I see priests and other people standing about her, as she says, “So also may the Lady come to her apostles and nations throughout the whole world, in order to bring them the Holy Spirit again and anew. For before great decisions, the true Holy Spirit must always be invoked.” Now the Lady pauses again for a moment, and then she says very strikingly, in a low voice, “And Mary stayed with her Apostles.” Now I see the Lady seated in a hall, surrounded by people from former times wearing long garments.
All nations will call me blessed – Then the Lady looks in front of herself, as if into the distance, and says very clearly and slowly, “My prophecy, ‘From now onwards all nations will call me blessed’, will be fulfilled more than ever before, when the dogma is proclaimed. The Holy Father knows his time. He will prepare and accomplish this before he is taken up among Us. On this day all nations will call me blessed. I have come on this day so that they” ––and the Lady points about her––“will bear witness that the Lady of All Nations really and truly said this.”
The sign of the Lady of All Nations– “I said: Church of Rome, I will come only a few more times. By this the Lady of All Nations wanted to say to you: only a few more times before the proclamation of the dogma. Mark this well. And this is the sign: under this title, the Lady of All Nations may come every year among her children, among her apostles, among all nations.”
The word, the voice of their mother– “I have come to the world in various ways.” Now the Lady looks at the globe and shakes her head with a sad look on her face. “Now I ask: has this had any effect? The Lord Jesus Christ wants to grant yet another great favor to the world, and that is the word, the voice of their mother, the Lady of All Nations. By means of this instrument in a small country which is on a downward slope, the Lady of All Nations will give her motherly admonitions and consolations each year. Later on this will cease. Child, they will believe you. I am here. I shall assist and help you. The image must be placed in public. Ask this of your bishop. He shall consent to having the image brought forth. (1) He shall consent to the building of the church, the one I showed you. Everyone shall fight for this. Tell that to your spiritual director. I will help both him and the others, too. It is my prayer––tell that to your bishop. He shall consent to this. No, child, do not be afraid.”
Peace will follow the dogma – Now the Lady gazes before herself again, and it takes a while before she continues, “From now onwards all nations will call me blessed. The Lady of All Nations wishes for unity in the true Holy Spirit. The world is covered by a false spirit, by Satan. Once the dogma, the final dogma in Marian history, has been proclaimed, the Lady of All Nations will grant peace, true peace, to the world. The nations, however, must pray my prayer, together with the Church. They shall know that the Lady of All Nations has come as Coredemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate. So be it. I will return, as I promised today, but in public.” This frightens me terribly, but the Lady says, “No, child, do not be afraid. So be it.”
Kneel down humbly before your Creator – The Lady pauses for a long time, and then she starts speaking again, “Now I speak to the nations of the entire world: apostles and nations, kneel down before your Lord and Creator and be grateful. This world’s science has made people forget gratitude. They no longer know their Creator. Nations, be warned. Kneel down humbly before your Creator.” The Lady says this with immense reverence and devotion. She falls to her knees and bows her head so deeply that it nearly touches the ground. “Implore His mercy and He is merciful. Doesn’t He give you proof of it in this time? May the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit be with you all the days of your life. May the Father and the Son bring you the Lady of All Nations.”
All people – “No matter who or what you are, I may be for you: the Mother, the Lady of All Nations.” Then the Lady gazes far into the distance, as if she were looking for people. It is as if she really wants to draw all people towards her, people who belong to our Church, people who do not belong to our Church and even people who do not belong to any church at all. “See to it, nations, that those who are in need––and by this I also mean spiritual need––are brought to the Lady. Work among the others with my prayer.” The Lady pauses for a moment and then says, “The Lady will return every year.” And then she slowly goes away.
(1) Though initially refused, permission was later given to have the painting of the Lady of All Nations placed in public. On December 19, 1954, the painting was solemnly installed at St. Thomas Church on Rijn Street
