The Top Ten Titles of Mary

Messages from the Marians of the Immaculate Conception

“As befitting the Mother of God and Queen of Heaven, Mary has numerous titles and names.  It’s fascinating that one person can have so many titles, but how how else could we grasp the aspects of Our Lady merely by her given name?

The Gospel of John doesn’t even name Mary, only referring to her as the Mother of Jesus. We need more.  And so, after surveying Her many titles, we present the admittedly subjective top Ten Names of Mary.

10.  Queen of Peace – Mary officially received this title during World War I in a proclamation by Pope Benedict XV.  The Pope added ‘Queen of Peace’ into the Litany of Loretto in his call for peace among the warring nations.

9.   Our Lady of Czestochowa, or the Black Madonna – Poland’s national shrine to Mary.  Legend has it that St. Luke painted this icon on a table that Jesus built.  Popes and pilgrims alike have recognized the miraculous nature of the image.

8.   Mother of Perpetual Help – This painting shows the Madonna and Child attended by the archangels Michael and Gabriel.  The angels hold instruments central to the Passion.  The painting is heart breaking.  The Christ Child, having glimpsed the instruments of torture, runs to His Mother’s protection.  His right foot is bare, indicating He was so frightened He ran out of His sandal.

7.   Our Lady of Guadalupe – This is the image Mary left on the cloak of Juan Diego.  Our Lady called herself coatlaxiopeuh, which means “the one who crushes the serpent”.  The word is pronounced “quat-la-lupe,” which is derived from the English version of Guadalupe.

6.  Our Lady of Mt. Carmel – This is Mary of the brown scapular.  The scapular comes to us through the vision of St. Simon stock.  Many miracles have been attributed to the scapular of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel.

5. Our Lady of The Miraculous Medal – Mary’s appearances to Catherine Laboure in 1830 marked the beginning of modern Marian apparitions.  Mary gave St. Catherine the design for this medal.  The words on the medal prompted clarification on the Immaculate Conception, which became dogma in 1854.

4.  Mother of Mercy – Saint Odo, a 10th century abbot, is believed to be the first to call Mary by this name.  In the 11th century, this title was incorporated into the prayer Salve Regina.

3.  Blessed Mother – This seminal title derives from Gabriel’s greeting to Mary at the Annunciation, where she is called “blessed” among all other women.

2.  Immaculate Conception – The 1854 dogma issued by Pope Pius IX refers to Mary’s sinless nature at the moment of being conceived by her parents.  The Immaculate Conception was the first time a pope claimed a dogma to be infallible, even though the idea of papal infallibility would not be officially proclaimed for another 16 years.  This is the definitive title of the Blessed Mother.

And now, in my opinion, the No. 1 title of the Blessed Mother

1.  Theotokos – Mary’s first and most important title means “God bearer.”  The title, defined by the Council of Ephesus in 431 A.D., refers to the Virgin Mary as the Mother of the Incarnate Son of God.

China’s Dream To Invade the Philippines is Coming True – Mary’s Prophecy at Lipa

Cardinal Ricardo J. Vidal, Archbishop Emeritus of Cebum, has written to the Philippine Bishops that on October 17, 1949, ‘ Mary Mediatrix of All Grace’ during an apparition to Teresita Castillo,  warned that “China’s dream, is to invade the Philippines.”

What Our Lady prophecied in 1949, in an apparition loaded with miracles, cures and conversions … is literally coming true.

China’s Island Building is at its highest rate of activity on the Paracel and Spratly Island chains.  Beijing has reclaimed more than 2000 acres since December 2013, more land than all other claimants combined in the past forty years,  according to a US. Defense Department report.

Satellite imagery has shown unprecedented activity from China on Subi Reef and Fiery Cross Reef in the Spratlys, including the possible construction of helipads, airstrips, piers radar, and surveillance structures.

An artificial island, built on a reef, arm,ed by Chinese Communists could become a reality off the coast of the Philippines.

In addition to China, the Spratlys are claimed by Malaysia, the Philippines, Vietnam, and Taiwan.

Experts say that China’s artificial island building and infrastructure construction are increasing its potential power projection capabilities in the region.

Cardinal Vidal continues on in his letter to the Philippine Bishops about the prophecy of Mary, who is the Queen of Prophets: “This part of the message of Lipa gives us a reason to put ourselves under the title of Mediatrix of All Grace and have recourse to Her in order to avert the buildup of tension and to check the territorial ambitions of this Asian superpower.  It is by following this path of prayer and penance sounded out in Fatima and reiterated at Lipa that our beloved Philippines will be spared the scourge of war and the domination of a Communist giant.”

The Philippines cannot, by any stretch of the imagination, equal or overtake China in economic growth or prevail in a military confrontation.

China can bring to bear … its’ huge financial and material and human resources …  as well as its advanced military capability in any struggle with a smaller and poorer country like the Philippines with its ill equipped armed forces.

The first and only line of defense the Philippines has is the mantle of protection provided by the Blessed    images 14.jpgVirgin Mary.”

Lipa Apparitions: Did Pius XII Really Sign a Document of His Disapproval ??

The Vatican has overturned the approval of Arch Bishop Ramon Arguelles for the apparitions of Our Lady at Lipa in the Philippines.

“I prayed at Lipa as a seminarian and young priest, wrote ArchBishop Arguelles.  I   Spent solitude time there, even as a Bishop.  I pray in Carmel.  It’s part of my life.  And I am thinking I became Archbishop of this place for a reason. Naturally we will abide strictly to the Vatican’s recent declaration on the apparitions.” writes ArchBishop Arguelles.

The decision to overturn the Bishops approval was based on a”1951 letter of Pope Pius XII citing disapproval” some 60 years ago.

Pope Pius XII denied that he signed this letter:

June Keithley is a prominent broadcast journalist and television personality in the Philippines.   In 1988 the Republic of the Philippines awarded her the Medal of Honor.  On page 92 of her book,, ‘Lipa” Father Riccardo Lombardi, S.J. founder of the Better World Movement, recalled an audience he had had with Pius XII.  He showed the letter to the Holy Father and “the Holy Father looked at the letter and exclaimed,   “But that is not my signature!”

It is deep.  Storm clouds  hang over the Philippines, the gateway to the East, They can be brightened considerably by devotion and prayer to Mary under the title “Mediatrix of All Grace.”  The message of Lipa is for the whole world for we are all under those same dark clouds.

Let us look at the situation.

“Confuscius wrote:  “Just as there are two suns in the sky, so there can be only one emperor on earth.”

The Chinese plan for conquering and ruling the world is well documented and is reflected in the geopolitical developments that have taken place since the Communist revolution of 1949.

On July 18, China’s Naval Chief Wu Shengli told the visiting U.S. Chief of naval operations that Beijing would not halt its controversial campaign to turn the contested South China reefs into artificial islands complete with military ready airstrips.

China “will never give up halfway” on its island building efforts” said Wu according to Chinese state media.  Also on Monday, the Chinese Air Force announced that it had sent bombers on “normal battle patrols over Scarborough shoal” a reef which was seized from Manila in 2012.

Analysts worry that China could next build on Scarborough Shoal.  This would place a militarized Chinese island off the Philippine coast.

In 1947, Yang Huairen, a Chinese geographer, helped etch the U shaped 11 dash line on Chinese maps to demarcate roughly 90% of the South China Sea for his homeland. “All of these lines have a scientific basis” says Yang.

Is this information from Mary about China not reason For The World to Be Made Aware of Our Lady’s Requests at Lipa?  Just wondering ! Our Lady asks for prayers for China and there are good reasons as the Catholics in China have suffered violence for their Religion.  The conversion of China from atheistic Communism is paramount to obtain.  Mary can obtain this conversion with the graces she receives from God and which flow from Her Immaculate hands to the people of China.  She only asks for a title to be given her by Her Sons Church.  Is that so much?

 The Church says that we can still be devoted to Mary Mediatrix of All Grace.  Why don’t they want to declare it as Dogma?

Lipa City Apparitions of Our Mary Mediatrix Of All Grace

Much dissention has surrounded the apparitions of Our Lady to Teresita Castello a Carmelite Nun.  The latest approval by Bishop Ramon Arguelles that the apparitions were “worthy of belief” (September 2015) has been overturned by the Vatican Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith signed by Cardinal Gerhard Muller and Archbishop Luis Ladaria.

Their decision was based on a letter written by Pope Pius XII in 1951 that the apparitions lacked supernatural character. This letter is highly questionable as coming from Pius XII.

The book ‘Lipa’ by June Keithley, a prominent broadcast journalist and television personality … states that when Pius XII saw this letter he said: “that is not my signature”

Notwithstanding any of the other twists and turns of this story and the persecution of the nuns by various priests and a papal nuncio, … I offer you the following pictures of one of the phenomenons of Lipa.

Rose Petals Fell from the Sky in “showers”.  Many of them had holy images on them.

Many of the Rose Petals had to be burned by the Sisters along with important documents and the diary of Sister Teresing Castillo.  Sister was forcibly imprisoned in another convent from which she suffered great pains and her tears fell every day. There was nothing wrong with her.   She subsequently left the order of Carmel under heavy persecution.   A ‘Silence’ was imposed on the convent.   They were told to never discuss things about the apparition even among themselves.  

Hmm Sister Lucy of Fatima also had a ‘silence’ imposed on her …

The book, ‘Lipa’ by June Keitbley can be obtained from Amazon. It is thoroughly documented with copious footnotes and includes the results of diligent research in the Vatican archives.

It seems that Our Lady would like to have the title ‘Mary Mediatrix of All Grace’ DEFINED … What is holding Rome back?  Pope Francis himself venerated the statue.

My Dear Mother

Eric L. Harris

Sometimes I wish that I were back at home

In the loving arms that held me strong.

To reassure my safety, my peace, my soul;

To let me know that everything was okay, that you were in control.

But reality has set in, my course is now set;

Guided by your love, making no move that I would regret.

You hath raised me, raised a man, a man of values indeed.

Your instructions on life I live by and have learned to take heed.

Obedience is therefore greater than any sacrifice I can make,

And I’d rather die horrifically, than your heart at any time I break.

Love you, yes indeed, far greater than any other.

A lady of profound beauty and wisdom, but above all MY MOTHER
