Our Lady of Kazan and Mary’s Affinity for Russia

Our Lady of Kazan and Mary’s Affinity for Russia

Mary Appeared to Three Shepherd Children

Original Article posted in CNA

Rome, Italy, Aug 12, 2017 / 04:02 pm

One hundred years ago, at the height of a cultural about-face in Russia, Mary appeared to three shepherd children in Portugal, predicting and encouraging prayer for Russia’s conversion.

Years later, a well-known and beloved Russian Orthodox icon known as Our Lady of Kazan, commonly referred to as “the protection of Russia,” would become tied to the site of the Fatima apparitions, where Mary predicted that “the Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, and she shall be converted, and a period of peace will be granted to the world.”

Looking back into Russia’s history, it’s clear that the Virgin Mary has had a very strong cultural influence in the country – from its religion to its art and architecture.

In fact, before the revolutions of 1917 which overthrew the Russian Empire and led to the establishment of the Soviet Union, Russia was colloquially known as the “house of Mary,” since there were more shrines and churches dedicated to Our Lady than in any other country at the time.

According to veteran Vatican analyst Robert Moynihan, who has an extensive knowledge of Russian culture, the majority of Russian icons depict Mary with the child Jesus.

An icon, he explained, “is a sacramental, as it were, which allows the reality of the person depicted to be perceived in prayer and in meditation.”

“(So) in looking at these icons the Russian people are communing with the Virgin Mary, and they have a profound relationship on a spiritual level with Mary.”

And there are unarguably far more varieties of icons depicting the Virgin Mary in Russian iconography than any other figure. Most Russian icons depicting Mary are divided into four broad groups: the Eleusa (The Tenderness), the Odigitria (The Guide), the Oranta (The Sign), and the Akathist (The Hymn).

Many of the world’s most famous icons today are images of Mary found to be miraculous, including the Vladimir, Smolensk, Kazan and Cz?stochowa images.

Aside from Poland’s Cz?stochowa icon, each of these are from or are now found in Russia.

Our Lady of Kazan is by far one of the most famous images in Russian Orthodoxy, and it has a unique history linking it to the Catholic Church and to the Fatima apparitions.

The icon itself dates back to at least 1569, when it was found in the town of Kazan, located roughly 500 miles east of Moscow. At the time, the area was caught in a conflict between the Volga Tatars and the Tsardom of Russia

According to tradition, one night a little girl had a dream in which Our Lady appeared to her and told her to go to the ruins of a church that had been burnt down, and “there you will find my image.”

The child’s mother refused to let her go out, arguing that it was too dangerous. However, after having the dream for two more consecutive nights in a row, Our Lady said she would become upset if the girl didn’t go.

So the next morning, the child’s mother accompanied her to the church, where they saw a golden light amid the ashes. When they brushed the soot away, they saw that they were holding an image of Mary and the Child Jesus, and that it was glowing.

As they were holding it, a blind man in the area was said to have regained his sight, and the image became known as a miraculous icon. Word of the event spread and eventually reached the tzar in Moscow, who asked that the image be brought to the capital.

“Over the centuries the icon became known as the ‘protection of Russia,’” Moynihan said, explaining that whenever Russia would engage in war, the tzar would call the Patriarch of the Russian Orthodox Church, and the patriarch would then lift the icon in front of the army and pray for Russia’s protection, and although the country suffered great loss, “Russia was never conquered.”

The icon was eventually placed in Moscow’s Cathedral of Our Lady of Kazan, which sat directly across the street from the Kremlin.

However, in 1918, after the Bolsheviks came to power, the icon was taken from the church and sold to an art dealer in Warsaw, and it end up in the possession of an English nobleman who hung the image on the wall of his house in London.

Years later, in 1950, a Russian Orthodox bishop happened to be visiting the house and recognized the image, telling the owner he was in possession of “the protection of Russia.”

After his death, the icon was purchased from the estate by the Blue Army of Fatima – an international organization dedicated to spreading Our Lady of Fatima’s message – in the 1960s, and in the 1970s a chapel was built to house the icon at the Fatima shrine in Portugal.

The chapel was built to house the icon at the Fatima shrine in Portugal.

So the Kazan image ironically ended up in the same place from which Our Lady in 1917 asked the three shepherd children to pray for Russia, asked that it be consecrated to her Immaculate Heart, and predicted that it would be converted.

When St. John Paul II was elected Bishop of Rome in 1978, he had wanted to return the icon to Russia, but it was impossible while the country was under communist rule.

So when the Iron Curtain fell in 1991, within a few days the Polish Pope called the Vatican’s ambassador to Portugal and asked that the Kazan icon be brought to him in Rome, so that he could carry it back to Russia.

Moynihan, who had already developed a strong interest in Russia at that point, began to become curious about the image as plans for a papal trip to Russia fell through.

At one point he asked St. John Paul’s secretary if the story about Our Lady of Kazan was true, and in response was told that it was in fact true, and he was invited to come see the image for himself in his apartment.

Lady of Kazan in the Pope’s Apartment

“I stood in front of the icon on the mantle piece in the Pope’s study, and I felt a sense of vertigo,” Moynihan said, “because looking at the eyes of the icon, I felt that Mary was both tender and severe, and was both present and distant, and was both in time and out of time.”

However, the Russian Orthodox Church did not want the icon to be returned during a papal visit for fear that it would seem like a triumphant return for the Catholic Church, and not for the Orthodox.

In the end, the icon was handed over in 2004, by Cardinal Walter Kasper, then the president of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity, and Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, then the Archbishop of Washington, who traveled to Moscow and placed it in the hands of Patriarch Alexey II.

Moynihan reflected on the icon’s importance for the Russian people.

“It seems to me that there is a profound veneration in Russia for eternal things, for the eternal motherhood of Mary, and that this is still percolating in the dusty soil of the communist ideology,” he said.

Describing it as kind of “holy grace that is attached to the icon of Kazan,” he said this grace “is still working its way through the history of Russia,” and thanks in part to St. John Paul II, “this story is still not finished.”

When the families go, the nations will go! … THE FALL OF FAMILIES: Bayside Heavenly Messages Unfold

THE GREATEST ATTACK UPON FAMILY LIFE

“Evil creations from hell…all manner of abominations are entering into the homes of your nation and the countries throughout the World. It will be an absolute necessity now for all parents to act as a director, a leader in the homes. The greatest attack from Satan shall be upon family life. If you break down the family, you will break down the nation. ”

My children, I cry too, bitter tears of remorse for what we see now happening in your world, the earth. Man is plunging fast to the brink of his own destruction. There is no place for men to hide from what shall come upon him.’’ “It is well, children of the earth, that you spend now your time in prayer and penance. Many shall die soon. Many shall die without the opportunity to make amends for the salvation of his soul. Pray a constant vigilance of prayer now…going throughout your world and your country.’’ March 15, 1978

“Your children, by manner of the televisions are being now schooled to kill, to sin.”

May 13, 1978— Our Lady-“My child, Our Hearts are torn in Heaven as We watch man advancing faster into the darkness, deeper into sin. Man has now cast aside the knowledge of sin. He has found the way rationalize away sin until sin has become truly a way of life for many. The greatest measure of responsibility for the lost of souls shall fall upon the clergy. My Son’s House, His Church, is passing through a great trial; however it is a time for testing for mankind. The eventual victory against satan shall be with My Son, for the gates of hell shall never prevail against His Church upon earth.”

My children, you must understand that man in his frailties often succumb to the mores of modernism. Countless times in the past the Spirit of Truth came with the knowledge to man that the day would come when a great delusion shall descend upon mankind and cover the earth in a blanket of spiritual darkness. This day has arrived, My children. Recognize the forces of evil about you now. The man of sin, 666, Satan, Lucifer, with all the demons loosed from hell, now are upon earth and due great battle with the children of God. The Holy City of Rome shall stand with the cross. Blood shall flow in the streets. My children, no country now shall be free from the evils of communism. My heart is torn, for I have come to you in countless appearances upon earth to warn you as Our children to avoid compromise with the enemies of God, though they come to you with smooth tongues, rationalizing their behavior. And because man has fallen out of grace, he will accept these lies and become enslaved.”

CHILDREN WILL CONTINUE TO RISE UP AGAINST THEIR PARENTS

July 25, 1979 “As the darkness deepens upon your earth, your world will appear to many like insanity has set upon it: Murders will increase, accidents called ‘freaks of nature’, accidents that are not accidents. Children will continue to rise up against their parents, being encouaged by their schools, their teachers, their news medias and all of the medias that have been well-planned to seduce the souls of your children. And the master behind these medias is Lucifer and his agents from Hell walking now in human form.

My children, as long as you reject the existence of the supernatural, you cannot be saved. If you do not recognize the existence of a world beyond your human eyes to see, you will not be saved, for you cannot fight them. There are demons now loosed upon earth. All hell now is upon earth with Lucifer as their head, known as the army of satan, the prince of darkness. Lucifer was a murderer from the beginning, and he will be a murderer to his end.

Many of you, even clergy in My Church, My House upon earth, are selling their souls to get to the head, and for what?! There is not one human being upon earth that must not die, that will not die.

Each and every living creature upon earth will die sooner or later. The body will die, but your spirit will not. Your spirit will live with full consciousness, passing over unto judgment. I have requested many times that the word death be applied only to the human body. For man, as created in the image of God, there is no death if he will accept the commandments of his Creator and live his life upon earth as requested and directed by his Creator. Man with his free will can also reject the beckonings of Heaven and fall victim, willing or unknowingly, to satan. Those who go into the web of Lucifer unknowingly can be brought out through the charity and prayers of another.”

THE SPREAD OF DRUGS

“The spread of drugs was for reason—to bring down the morale, and to give your children over to Satan….Recordings known as rock and roll are the major instrument for leading your children into the plague, the country wide plague of Drugs…They put into your child a spell, a hypnotism leading to promiscuity, deviant sex, homosexuality, drugs, murders, abortions and all manner of foul deeds…”November 13, 1975

Worldly Pleasures

August 4, 1979 “I have asked you in the past to remain away from even the simplest forms of entertainment outside your home because Lucifer will give you one thousand truths if he can bring in one error to you. Do not be deceived by your medias because they are under the control now of the agents of hell.”

COVENS BEING SET UP

“Satan now in the body of the man. He’ll roam the country now. He‘ll set up his covens. Covens, my child, covens they are called. He’ll set them up to kill and maim. Beware! Allow none into your house unless you know them well. Guard your doors against the agents of hell, who will come in the wean your children from your house into households of sin.” “Mothers, protect your daughters’ purity. Allow them no rein to be free in choice. Guard them well, for they will be the victims of black mass which shall rage throughout your country.” “This spirit of evilness now is spreading fast throughout your country. The angels of death, they shall now increase.” August 13, 1977

Babies put in Dumpsters! Bayside Messages: God’s Authority on Creation and Life

ABORTION


snopes.com

“Living human beings, O My child, My tears fall upon you all when I see all of the innocent little babies being slaughtered…cast into garbage pails like nothing but dirt and scum. They are living human beings! And all murderers shall get their just recompense.” Our Lady, March 18, 1983

Photo:  http://i.dailymail.co.uk

Our Lady…December 28, 1974 Veronica, Seer, “Our Lady is pointing over on Her right side. “Oh! And I’m looking into…It looks like a field – no, it’s a dump. It’s a dump – a garbage dump – and Our Lady is pointing down:”
Our Lady…”See, My child, mankind – the rubble, treated like garbage.”

Veronica, Seer, “Oh! I see plastic bags and oh, my God! I see bodies of babies, oh! They’re plastic bags! In one bag, I see, Oh, my God! Oh! I see three faces Oh, my God! – three heads, oh! They’re actually babies! How horrible! Oh, my God! I dont see a whole body in the bag. I see a horrible mixture of arms and legs oh, my God!

Our Lady… “Yes, My child, they are not only slaughtered, they are tortured!”
(Veronica is crying) Oh! Oh!

Our Lady… “Murder, My child, is not a pretty sight! Murder is not a pretty sight! Murder, My child! As you sow, so shall you reap! All who share even a slight measure of responsibility for the murder of the unborn, shall send themselves into the abyss! Eternal damnation and the fires shall claim them! Repent now of your murders!”

THE CREATION OF MAN…THE CREATION OF SATAN

August 5, 1978…”Man is creating now an abominable situation upon earth as he seeks to fly high to the realms of Heaven by seeking to create another being. I shall not, My Children, venture to call this being “human,” for it is the creation of man, coming forth without a soul. Satan, the master of deceit, has been the creator.


TEST TUBE BABIES BORN WITHOUT SOUL

http://www.crisismagazine.com/

“Therefore My children, I must tell you this, there will be a major war between the wrong side, the left and the right, over this issue. We will not have test tube babies, for they are not born with a soul. They can only, then, be called a “thing”, a ‘creature’ unknown. Is this what you want, my children? Is this what you want of these children you bear for another? To give them as though you were machines, manufacturing them for another?” June 6, 1987

“My children, no man upon earth, with all of his knowledge, will be able to create and sustain life! What he is producing now is an empty shell, a soulless “it”, a thing of abomination!” “This will be not a human, but a soulless “thing” an ‘it’! All who participate in such abomination, seeking to play the role of God in creation, shall perish by the sword.” August 19, 1978

DEMONS OF HUMANISM AND MODERNISM


July 15, 1977…The Immaculate Mother” There are many children without the light now, and the measure of responsibility is with my shepherds. You must understand that the supreme and first commandment of all and to all mankind is honor to his God, and the Eternal Father is your God in the Trinity. If you reject Him, If you build a new house, a new church upon earth, it will not have the angels at your side; you will have demons of humanism and modernism to your own destruction.” “The Eternal Father waits with a heart of mercy, waiting for you to return. “Pastors, you are going downstream like flock of ducks, neither caring nor knowing nor searching for truth. You are playing ‘follow the Leader ‘to your own destruction”

Bayside NY Heaven’s prophecies being fulfilled

Bayside NY Heaven’s prophecies being fulfilled

MASSIVE WORLD MONETARY DEPRESSION

“My child and My children, the days will grow darker, and there will be hunger in your land. Yes, My child, what I brought you here for this evening is to tell the world that there will be a crash in the monetary doings of your government – an absolute crash that will affect every man, woman, and child in the United States and Canada, and then, like a serpent, creep all over Europe, until the world sees one big, massive depression. I can illustrate to you, My children, that I mean by this monetary depression.

“Should you go and wish to buy a small instrument, even a guitar, that We hear plucking away at the dervishly, and devilry, of what is called the musical Mass, strung by guitars, and other creations of Satan. My child, I go on to tell you, you will say that the guitar is not a costly item, but in order to buy this guitar you will carry an actual satchel, an overnight bag – size, My child – let us put it that way clearly – of notes, your currency. It will take a whole suitcase of paper – paper money that no longer has a value. You will soon be reduced to bartering for your food. September 7, 1985

THE START OF THE GREAT SORROWS


May 30, 1977…Jesus with the Immaculate Mother “You and the world’s peoples will experience very soon the start of the great sorrows upon mankind.

Before many of those who listen now to My counsel, before long, I say unto you: you will have received direct confirmation of the prophecies from Heaven. My children, you will keep your armor about you; protect your children with this armor. It has been given to you for good reason.

If you cannot understand in your human mind, accept it through faith, and gain. If you reject the counsel of my mother, your reject the salvation of your soul and children’s souls.” “The world leaders in the nations of the earth have received a great part of the counsel of my mother. You must all keep a constant vigil of prayer going throughout your country and the world. Prayer can only now melt the hearts of those who have closed their ears.

Bayside Prophecies and Prayer

A GODLESS NATION

“Without My Son you are lost. A Godless nation shall fall. A nation that has been eaten away and rotted by sin shall fall. A nation that has turned itself back and regressed to a state of animal living bordering on all sins of the flesh and impurity, given over to the manner of seeking things of the world: power, lust, envy, hate, murders, abortions, worship of false idols; loving money, power and lacking, the instinct of survival when survival can only be reached by pleading for them to the merciful heart of the Eternal Father. ’’ June 13, 1981

THE START OF THE GREAT SORROWS


May 30, 1977…Jesus with the Immaculate Mother “You and the world’s peoples will experience very soon the start of the great sorrows upon mankind.

BISHOP AND CARDINALS NEED PRAYERS


Our Lady….MAY 28, 1977″Your bishops and your cardinals need prayers. there must be hours of atonement and sacrifice for them. I have called to you to come onto the grounds of My Shrine site in Bayside, and I have directed you to maintain these prayer hours upon these grounds for your cardinals and bishops.

“My children, too few pray for their priests. Too few know that without their prayers, graces do not multiply fast enough to save their priests. “O My children, Rome is in great danger. There is much deceit throughout the hierarchy. It will be cardinal against cardinal and bishop against bishop, for satan has set himself in their ranks. Prayer is the most powerful force now given in your world to stop the advances of 666.”

WHY THE MOST PRECIOUS BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST?

WHY THE MOST PRECIOUS BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST?

image

The inherited, sinful blood from Adam and Eve was replaced by the Precious Blood of Jesus! Our Lord Jesus Christ bleed to death. On the cross, he was covered with blood…. his bloodshed is our “blood of redemption.”

MOST PRECIOUS BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST SAVE US AND THE WHOLE WORLD! Read … (Video and Prayer Included)

The Blood of Jesus is In Heaven On the Mercy Seat!
by David J. Stewart

… But BY HIS OWN BLOOD he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.” —Hebrews 9:12

       The Old Testament tabernacle, holy of holies, mercy seat and priestly work of atonement were all “SHADOWS” of things to come. Hebrews 10:1 and 4, “For the law having a SHADOW of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect. … For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins.” The blood of Jesus had to be applied to the heavenly mercy seat to redeem mankind. If Jesus’ blood had soaked into the ground at Calvary, then the sins of humanity could not have been taken away. Hebrews 9:12, “Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.” It WASN’T finished at the cross!

The Price Of The Church (by Pastor Jack Hyles)

This is not a new or strange doctrine, it is the Word of God. The sad truth is that most people have attended lousy churches their entire life and have never been blessed enough to have a man of God who truly walks with God and understands the Word of God. The lamb’s death wasn’t enough when the 10th plague (the death of the firstborn) came upon Egypt! The lamb’s shed blood had to be APPLIED to the doorposts of the home. The Lord said WHEN I SEE THE BLOOD, I will pass over you! Exodus 12:13, And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and WHEN I SEE THE BLOOD, I WILL PASS OVER YOU, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt….

Prayer Against the Antichrist


Hard Copy of Prayer: PRAY AWAY THE ANTI-CHRIST

O loving and merciful Father. You are all knowledgeable and all-powerful. Oh Alpha! Oh Omega! Creator of all things. You are eternal, Father. Father, why are you forsaking me? Look kindly on Your only-begotten Son Jesus Christ, Who came to save your people and bring Your Kingdom down on earth. I offer You all the agonies, tortures, pains, and Precious Blood of Your only Son, Jesus Christ, for the defeat of all the enemies of the Holy Cross of salvation; the antichrist and the Red Dragon who are fighting or will fight against the truth now and in the end of the age. May they, through the Precious Blood of Our Redeemer and His last breath on earth, disappear like foam exposed under the sun, so that Your Kingdom will quickly come on earth. Amen. Precious Blood of Jesus Christ – Thy Kingdom come. Amen.
