Reflecting  on  the  GIFT  of  Mary's  Discipleship

GOD has always used his daughter Mary

as our help and guide in His plan for our Salvation. She was guided by grace, in order to share grace, and help graces to flow from The  source.

GOD has gifted Mary to us, in intimate ways, since she was assumed into heaven. He has allowed heaven to come to earth again and again.......

A Marian Apparition is a reported supernatural appearance by Mary, the mother of Jesus, or a series of related such appearances over a period of time. ... The understood purpose of each apparition is to draw attention to some aspect of the Christian message, given the needs of a particular time and place.  These are intimate moments of conversation between a Mother and her children. These events always point us to Jesus.

While on earth, the Virgin Mary’s ministry was completely dedicated to reflecting the love, joy, and peace that comes from following her son, and that ministry doesn’t stop now that she has been assumed into heaven.

Many saints have spoken about our Blessed Mother’s ability to guide them to her son, and Marian apparitions are one of the most intimate ways Mary helps us to find the Lord.
