56 apparitions of Mary to invoke the Holy Spirit in a new way (I)

On March 25, 1945, Mary appeared to Ida Peerdeman (1905-1996), a Dutch woman from Amsterdam (Netherlands), presenting herself as the "Lady of all Nations" or the "Mother of All Nations." From 1945 to 1959, Ida received 56 apparitions. Their message teaches us how to invoke the Holy Spirit in a new way in order to receive the gift of Peace. In this time of "decline of the faith" (March 28, 1951) and in this "world sunk in corruption" (May 7, 1949), Mary came to unveil a plan of Salvation for Humanity.

The Lady stands on the earth's globe, surrounded by divine light, before the Cross of her Son. All around, flocks of sheep symbolize all the peoples of the earth. The seer saw a large number of black sheep and heard these words: "The people of the whole world will not find rest until they ... will lift their eyes peacefully towards the Cross, the center of the world" (May 31, 1951).

The image is accompanied by a prayer given by the Lady, on February 11, 1951, feast day of Our Lady of Lourdes: "Pray before the Cross: 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." The Lady asked that this prayer be prayed at least once a day: "I assure you that the world will change" (April 29, 1951).

On May 31, 2002, Bishop Punt, of Haarlem-Amsterdam, the Netherlands, declared the apparitions to be of supernatural origin and authentic. (1)
