The Message of El Escorial is the Message of Lent

      We continue with the eighth installment of the apparitions of El Escorial, Spain which began during the same time frame as Betania and Medjugorje and has received little publicity. Yet, like Medjugorje and Betania, El Escorial is still going on and is as important as the others for Our Lady comes as Nuestra Senora de los Dolores - "Our Lady of Sorrows" to call all her children back to her Divine Son Jesus through Prayer, Penance and Sacrifice in atonement for our own sins and those of the entire world. God's chosen messenger to receive these and impart them to the world is a housewife and mother of seven Luz Amparo Cuevas a visionary who has suffered much producing plentiful fruits.

THE DAILY WORD

"This generation is an evil generation: it demands a sign, and no sign shall be given it but the sign of Jonas. For even as Jonas was a sign to the Ninevites, so will aslo the Son of Man be to this generation."

Luke 11: 29-30

"I solemnly say to you: Great events are unfolding now to fulfill all I have foretold. "

      Those words set the theme for the two Messages from the Blessed Virgin Mary towards the end of September 1993 to the Hidden Flower of the Immaculate Heart. In Our Lady's two messages today she conveyes that the signs are there everyday, but the greatest Sign is the Presence of her Divine Son Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament Which resides in Tabernacles everywhere. She implores us to read Sacred Scripture, pray the Rosary, and return reverence to the Mass for in many places this Holy Sacrifice has become an aberration. She also asks her children to take the Sacraments very, very seriously, especially Confession and Confirmation for we need the strength of the Holy Spirit in these coming times in which she affirms that, "the mind of man cannot conceive of the chastisements yet to come."

January 25th Medjugorje Monthly Message

    Dear children! I again invite you to prayer. You have no excuse to work more because nature still lies in deep sleep. Open yourselves in prayer. Renew prayer in your families. Put Holy Scripture in a visible place in your families, read it, reflect on it and learn how God loves His people. His love shows itself also in present times because He sends me to call you upon the path of salvation. Thank you for having responded to my call.
