My mum's (Sheila Faustin) health started declining in March of this year. She had a stroke on June 3, 2021 and was taken to Hospital. She was released from the hospital on July 22, 2021. She returned to the hospital on July 23, 2021 due to a wound on her foot which became septic. My mother started to improve and the doctor gave the permission to release her on Wednesday August 4. During the morning of August 4, my mum suffered several major seizures and was not released from the hospital. My sister and I would visit her, pray the rosary, Divine Mercy Chaplet and other devotional prayers.
The travelling pilgrim statue of Our Lady of the Cape visited St. Aidan's Catholic Church on the weekend of August 7/8, 2021. On Saturday evening during my visit to the Blessed Mother I placed a petition in the box, asking Mama Mary to take my mum on her Feast Day - The Assumption of Our Blessed Mother, August 15, 2021. My friend Naomi, asked if I would like to have Our Lady of the Cape Statue (The travelling pilgrim statue) visit my home for one day and night. I said yes! Our Lady came to my home on Wednesday August 9. I invited my sister and a few friends for prayers. During our prayer session, I cried out to Mama Mary and said "Mama I know your Son has the appointed day and time for each one of us to be called to our heavenly home. I am asking you to intercede on my behalf and take my mum home to your Son on the Feast of the Assumption August 15, 2021 your Feast Day. I returned the travelling statue on Thursday August 10. I visited my mum in the evening on Saturday August 14, 2021; before leaving her bedside, I bent down close to her left ear and whispered to her that "mama Mary will come & take her to Jesus in the morning; it's ok to go with mama Mary, we will be fine and dad will be ok, we will take care of him". My mum died peacefully on Sunday August 15, 2021 at 3:00am. Praise God! Thank you Mama Mary for your powerful intercession. We felt at peace when we received the news from the hospital. May The Blessed Mother continue to cover and protect you with her Holy Mantle. God bless, Gwen
SAINT CATHERINE LABOURE OF THE MIRACULOUS MEDAL by Fr. Joseph Dirvin.
Zoe was alone in the bedroom; she had looked carefully about to make sure of that. She had a duty to perform, and like all the solemn and decisive acts of life, it had to be done alone. Of course even Zoe did not realize that what she was about to do far transcended her personal life. It was vital to countless millions yet unborn; and so she might have spared herself her pains, for all the world was to see her. The Blessed Virgin arranged for the servant to happen quietly on the scene and to observe it all.
Zoe pulled a chair over beneath the shelf, for it was too high for her to reach, even if she stood on tiptoe. Climbing up on the chair, she stretched overhead and took down Our Lady's image. She was too much engrossed in the ecstasy of her devotion to notice anything now. She did not even get down from the chair; it would serve well enough for the altar of her choosing and dedication. Throwing her arms about the statue, she hugged it close to her little body, as a child might fondle her favorite doll or teddy bear.
But this was no doll. In a sense, it was no longer just a statue of Our Lady. It was Mary herself. Zoe's words showed that very clearly.
"Now, dear Blessed Mother," she said aloud with childlike fervor, "now you will be my Mother!"
Probably the incident of the statue was almost entirely for the benefit of mankind, a way of serving public notice that the Marian Age had begun.
