Our Mother Mary comes to AKITA, JAPAN

Statue of Our Lady of Akita
with tears.  The statue was
modeled on the apparition
of Our Lady of All Nations

with an urgent message for us all

The biggest earthquake in the history of Japan occurred the day of our community's anniversary, March 11, 2011, while we were on retreat. As soon as I heard the news I looked up the messages of our Lady given at Akita Japan in the 70's and we prayed for them. I learned that Akita is not far from the epicenter of the earthquake. Then our sister Tessie said that she had been thinking of the apparitions at Akita the day before. Our Lady surely wants us to receive her message in our hearts.
It has been almost 40 years since Mary gave the messages. Many are fascinated with messages from heaven, but how many repent and take them to heart? If we don't see the fulfillment of the prophesies in a short time, we quickly loose interest. The local bishop who approved them (they were also approved by Cardinal Ratzinger) said that they were linked with the Fatima messages. This time Mary expressed even greater urgency.  She cried 101 times and warned about an unprecedented chastisement.

I believe that Our Lady's messages are now more urgent than ever. I sensed the Lord telling me: Are you willing to be obedient and trust without seeing miraculous sings nor the fruits of your labor?  Would you be a faithful servant just our of love for me, even while suffering great opposition and humiliations? Do you see that many are loosing their souls because no one prays nor leads them to Jesus?

Even though fire has not yet come down from heaven, much has happened in the 40 years since Akita.  The message is not focused on the chastisement. Rather it is an urgent call for repentance and a turn to the Lord.

Here is a video on the messages of AKITA. It is only 7 minutes.
Messages of Mary at Akita

The messages of Mother Mary at Akita teach us:
The centrality of the Eucharist, true presence of Jesus.
The importance of the Rosary, let pray it every day!
The reality of the angels and our guardian angel. Be aware of them and ask for their protection.
The urgent need for intercession and reparation.
The sorrow of our mother seeing the sins of humanity
The coming of an unprecedented chastisement 
Division coming among priests, bishops and cardinals.
The devil will concentrate specially on souls who are dedicated to God,
specially the clergy.  Therefore Mary asks us to pray for them.
The church will be full of people who accept compromise. Already happening  
The Importance of the FATIMA message and prayer to avert the fires of hell
The meaning of the blood offered for conversion of sinners and reparation.
Mary asks for a cohort of victim souls to join her Son.
Each person is "irreplaceable"
Do we not cry with our Blessed Mother, are we not moved by her tears?
Let us then take the message to heart. 

Text of the messages at Akita

Mary asked Sister Agnes to pray it well

"Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, truly present in the Holy Eucharist, I consecrate my body and soul to be entirely one with Your Heart being sacrificed at every instant on all the altars of the world and giving praise to the Father, pleading for the coming of His Kingdom."

"Please receive My humble offering of myself. Use me as You will for the glory of the Father and the salvation of souls."

"Most Holy Mother of God, never let me be separated from your Divine Son. Please defend and protect me as Your special child. Amen."

Love Crucified
