The essay covers Marian Apparitions to Ida Peerdeman in Amersterdam, Holland. She has received 56 apparitions from March 25, 1945 to May 31, 1959. Born on August 13, 1905, in Alkmaar, Holland, Peerdeman died on June 17, 1996.
The first 25 messages, between 1945 and 1950, were apocalyptical against communism, atheism, and secularism, but changed after the dogma of Mary’s Assumption, promulgated in 1950. Mary requested her image, and Heinrich Repke painted it according to the visionary, in 1951.
“The Lady of All Nations is here, standing before the Cross of her Son; her feet are placed in the very mist of the world, and the flock of Jesus Christ surrounds her. It is as Co-Redemptrix and Mediatrix that I come at these times. I was Co-Redemptrix from the moment of the Annunciation. This is the meaning: the mother has been constituted Co-Redemptrix by the will of the Father. Tell this to your theologians. Tell them likewise that this dogma will be the last in Marian history.”
Mary cited preceding dogmas:
Mother of God
A Fifth Marian Dogma is the only possibility to true peace, the Immaculate Heart’s triumph and a Holy Spirit’s outpouring. The dogma would recognize Mary human advocate before the Holy Trinity, mediatrix of graces, and co-redeemer with her Son. “Co-“ means “with,” rather than “equal.”
Bishop Jozef Marianus Punt of Haarlem and Amsterdam declared the apparitions supernaturally trustworthy in 2002. The Virgin Mary offered a powerful daily prayer, approved by the bishop and the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, for the Holy Spirit to renew the Earth.
“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. Amen.”
