Our Lady the Immaculate Virgin
“In cases which concern private revelations, it is better to believe than not to believe, for if you believe and it is proven true, you will be happy that you believed, because our Holy Mother asked it of you. If you believed and it should be proven false, you will receive all the blessings as if it has been true, because you believed it to be true.” Pope Urban VIII
"What can be concluded canonically is that the devotion was both approved by Archbishop Leibold and, what is more, was actively promoted by him. In addition, over the years, other Bishops have approved the devotion and have participated in public devotion to the Mother of God, under the title of Our Lady of America." The Most Reverend Raymond L. Burke, Archbishop of Saint Louis May 31, 2007

From Jesus, Mary, Joseph Website
The following poem was posted on 12/11/07. The recipient was shown a dome-like structure. It was dark inside the dome and outside. There were angels at a distance outside the dome. They were gathering people that were carrying crosses and bringing them towards the dome.
When an angel brought the first person inside the dome, a light appeared as if a light bulb had been turned on. As more and more people were brought into the dome by the angels, it became brighter and brighter inside.
When the last person was brought in, everyone present was immersed in light, and healings began to take place. The deaf heard; the blind saw; the lame walked, and other kinds of healings took place.
The people that were left outside didn't have an angel to guide them into the dome. Instead of crosses they were carrying bags of gold and jewelry.
THE TIME IS AT HAND
WORLDWIDE EVENTS WILL BE SOON ESCALATING;
EACH ONE, THAN THE LAST, WILL BE MORE DEVASTATING.
BECAUSE OF THE LIFESTYLE MAN CONTINUES IN LEADING,
GOD’S MERCY WILL NOT BE FOR THEM INTERCEDING.
THE LAND GOD CREATED FOR MANKIND TO DWELL
HAS BECOME NOW, DEAR CHILDREN, A REFLECTION OF HELL.
IF YOU CONTINUE, DEAR CHILDREN, WHAT GOD GAVE TO ABUSE,
HOW WILL YOU RESPOND WHEN YOUR LIFE HE REVIEWS?
IN ORDER, DEAR CHILDREN, TO SURVIVE THE NEXT STORM,
THE TIME IS AT HAND NOW YOUR LIFE TO REFORM.
IF YOU CONTINUE, DEAR CHILDREN, MY WORDS TO IGNORE,
THE ANGELS WILL NOT COME TO KNOCK AT YOUR DOOR.
IF YOU ALLOW NOT, DEAR CHILDREN, GOD YOUR FUTURE TO GUIDE,
WHO WILL, MY DEAR CHILDREN, BE THEN AT YOUR SIDE?
USE THIS TIME WISELY, PRAY AND REPENT
SO THAT YOUR SOUL MAY SURVIVE WHAT NOW IS IMMINENT.
I CAN STILL SEE, DEAR CHILDREN, A GLIMMER OF LIGHT
AMONG THOSE WHO CONTINUE TO BATTLE THIS FIGHT.
THOSE WHO CARRY THEIR CROSSES AND CONTINUE TO PRAY
WILL BE GUIDED BY ANGELS TOWARDS NEW EDEN’S PATHWAY.

The following photos were submitted by two people very attached to Sylvan Springs and Our Lady of America. These photos have been studied by numerous professionals and religious types but no definite conclusion has been offered as to what/why/how/who is actually in the photos.
The first photo, of the waterfall, was taken several years ago at Medugorje. The second photo, of the clouds, was taken this past summer on the grounds of Sylvan Springs.
Print both photos in high quality and see what develops!

5 minute management course
A sales rep, an administration clerk, and the manager are walking to
lunch when they find an antique oil lamp.
They rub it and a Genie comes out.
The Genie says, "I'll give each of you just one wish.."
"Me first! Me first!" says the admin clerk. "I want to be in the Bahamas,
driving a speedboat, without a care in the world."
Puff! She's gone.
"Me next! Me next!" says the sales rep. "I want to be in Hawaii ,
relaxing on the beach with my personal masseuse, an endless supply of
Pina Coladas and the love of my life."
Puff! He's gone.
"OK, you're up," the Genie says to the manager.
The manager says, "I want those two back in the office after lunch."
Moral of the story:
Always let your boss have the first say.
I thought this little joke was a good example for us all. If we replace the "boss" with "God", everything works out just fine. I think the "Genie" would have to be our own Free Will.

Medjugorje Message to Mirjana - 2nd December 2007
Our Lady was very sad. Her eyes were filled with tears through out the whole time.
"Dear children,Today, while I am looking at your hearts, my heart is filled with pain and shudder. My children, stop for a moment and look in to your hearts. Is my Son – your God truly in the first place? Are His commandments truly the measure of your life? I am warning you again. Without faith there is no God’s nearness. God’s word which is the light of salvation and the light of common sense".
Mirjana added: I asked Our Lady painfully not to leave us and not to give up on us. Our Lady painfully smiled to my request and left. This time she did not finish her message with the words "Thank you". Our Lady blessed all of us and all religious articles we had with us.
Just a few days before this "alleged" message (we must be careful because these are not "approved") was given to Mirjana, we received these two photos taken by a regular contributor to this blog who had visited Sylvan Springs earlier this Fall with her husband. These photos are of the statue which stands in the exact location where the Our Lady of America apparitions took place in 1956.
The look on the face of this statue, which was rebuilt according to the description given the artist by Larry in 2001, seems to be right in line with the description Mirjana is describing Our Lady's present condition to be. Is this a coincidence or is it a confirmation that Our Lady is fatigued by the lack of positive response to Her continued attempts to warn us?
Thanks to KRIS for her timely contribution.
