May 31 is the Feast of The Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary. She made her first Visitation to a town of Judah. She was pregnant and St. Elizabeth, her elderly, pregnant cousin, greeted her and cried out with joy, “Most blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb. And how does this happen to me, that the mother of my Lord should visit me?” (Luke 1:42-43).
Mary is still making Visitations and traveling great distances to hear us cry out with this joy. Elizabeth’s awe, wonder and true humility are being shared today by people throughout America. They are ordinary people like Elizabeth and like you who are honored by Visitations from the Blessed Mother in the Missionary Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe!
St. John Paul II asked Our Lady “to visit as a pilgrim of faith, each and every diocese, parish and family in America, repeating to her children what she said at Cana, ‘Do whatever He tells you.’ (John. 2:5). May she cross this continent bringing it life, sweetness and hope!” This is the mission of our apostolate.
The Missionary Image needs to travel on Visitations to melt hearts and to raise what St. John Paul II called “a great prayer for life” in order to transform our culture from a Culture of Death to a Culture of Life. We celebrate the Visitation of Mary to Elizabeth with this in mind.
Missionary Image Visitations, Signs and Wonders
Cathy Grinn, our Visitation coordinator for the Missionary Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe, sent me this report: My heart is full of joy and awe at the goodness of Our Lord and the beautiful way Our Lady leads us to healing!!!! Not only was it a physical healing, it was a spiritual healing as well! Our Lady brought a woman back to Jesus after many years of being away from the Church! After her prayer in front of the Image, Confession and Eucharist, she was later healed.
She had been suffering from Stage 4 Liver Cancer that had moved to other parts of her body. The test results that she received showed no pelvis cancer, no cancer in the chest, 70% liver cancer GONE, and a tumor that had been 2.5 cm was reduced to 07 mm!
Father Phil, Pastor of St. Michael Parish in Monroe, Michigan, shared this, with her permission, on his Facebook Live. Within a month of praying with Our Lady, going to Confession and receiving Jesus in the Eucharist, she was completely healed. She probably felt like Elizabeth when Mary visited her and Elizabeth said, “How has it happened to me, that the Mother of my Lord should come to me?” (Luke 1:41-4)

As we celebrate our 31st anniversary, we need your help to hopefully continue our mission into the next 31 years.
So, I call upon your generosity to help us in our hour of need.
We have no assets besides our furniture and equipment. We have no savings accounts or investments. We live from hand to mouth depending upon divine providence and your generosity.
We plead for your mercy. Giving alms is a work of mercy for which God will bless you.
“Be not sparing of freewill gifts. With each contribution show a cheerful countenance, and pay your tithes in a spirit of joy. Give to the Most High as He has given to you, generously, according to your means. For the LORD is one who always repays, and He will give back to you sevenfold.” (Sirach 35:7-10). Thank you for your generosity!
If you would like to host a Visitation of the Missionary Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe, please contact us. A Visitation consists of visits of the Image to different sites and promotion of Our Lady’s Mission to end abortions and bring conversions in the New Evangelization.
The images visit churches and wherever else Our Lady’s motherly love is needed. The images bring works of mercy to convents, prisons, hospitals, nursing homes, schools and abortion centers. Because of the presence of the image, many abortions have been prevented and over twenty abortion centers have closed through Our Lady’s intercession.
Perhaps Our Lady is calling you to host a Home Visitation for her. The format consists of viewing of our video, Our Lady of Guadalupe, Mother of Hope! and praying the full Novena to her.
All you do is watch our video, Our Lady of Guadalupe, Mother of Hope!
Then pray the full Novena to Our Lady of Guadalupe, Patroness of All America, in front of her Image, or, if possible, A Holy Hour for Life, Peace and Protection.
Invite ten to twenty people to your home or group, show the video and lead the prayers. Easy!
Please call Cathy at 802 524-5350, ext. 14, if you would like more information.
