Revelation 12: Who is the woman clothed with the sun?

Published on Aug 31, 2012

http://www.SecretInfoClub.com The book of Revelation contains a passage in which St. John sees a great sign in the sky. He wrote:

“And a great portent appeared in heaven, a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars.

“She brought forth a male child, one who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron, but her child was caught up to God and to his throne” [Rev. 12:1, 5].

Who is this mysterious Woman clothed in the sun?

In the following video, we explore that question and look at different theories that have been proposed.

In particular, we look at the view advanced by Pope Benedict XVI, both in his personal writing and in his teaching as pope.

Pope Francis’ ANGELUS: On the Feast of the Assumption

“Our lives, seen in the light Mary’s Assumption into Heaven, is not a wandering without meaning, but a pilgrimage that, with all its uncertainties and sufferings, has a sure destination: the house of Our Father.”

By Staff Reporter

Vatican City, August 16, 2015 (ZENIT.org)

Below is a translation of Pope Francis’ address before and after the recitation of the Angelus prayer yesterday at noon to the faithful gathered in St. Peter’s Square for the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary:

***

Dear brothers and sisters, good morning and Happy Feast of Our Lady.

Today the Church celebrates one of the most important feasts dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary: the Feast of Her Assumption. At the conclusion of Her earthly life, the Mother of Christ was raised in soul and body to Heaven, that is, in the glory of eternal life, in the full communion with God.

Today’s Gospel (Lk. 1, 39-56) presents us to Mary who, immediately after having conceived Jesus by the power of the Holy Spirit, went to see her elderly cousin Elizabeth, who also miraculously awaits a son. In this meeting full of the Holy Spirit, Mary expresses Her joy with the canticle of Magnificat, because She has fully realized the meaning of the great things that are happening in Her life: through Her the expectation of Her people is fulfilled.

But the Gospel also shows us what is the true reason Mary’s greatness and blessedness: the reason is faith. In fact, Elizabeth greets Her with these words: “Blessed are you who believed that what was spoken to you by the Lord would be fulfilled” (Lk. 1,45). Faith is the heart of the whole history of Mary; She is the believer, the great believer; she knows – and says – that the violence of the mighty, the pride of the rich, the hubris of the arrogant weighs down in history. Still, Mary believes and proclaims that God does not abandon His humble and poor children, but helps them with mercy, with care, overthrowing the mighty from their thrones, scattering the proud from the plots in their hearts. This is the faith of Our Mother; this is the faith of Mary!

The Canticle of Our Lady also lets us sense the full meaning of the story of Mary: if the mercy of the Lord is the motor of history, then He could not “allow Her who generated the Lord of life to know the corruption of the sepulchre” (Preface). All this is not only about Mary. The “great things” done in Her by the Almighty profoundly touches us, it speaks of our journey in life, it reminds us of the destination that awaits us: the house of the Father. Our lives, seen in the light Mary’s Assumption into Heaven, is not a wandering without meaning, but a pilgrimage that, with all its uncertainties and sufferings, has a sure destination: the house of Our Father, who awaits us with love. It is beautiful to think of this: that we have a Father who awaits us with love, and that also our Mother Mary is there and She awaits us with love.

Meanwhile, as life goes on, God shines “for his people, a pilgrim on earth, a sign of consolation and of assured hope” (ibid.). That sign has a face, that sign has a name: the luminous face of the Mother of the Lord, the blessed name of Mary, the one full of grace, because She believed in the word of the Lord: the great believer! As members of the Church, we are destined to share the glory of our Mother, so that, thanks to God, we too may believe in the sacrifice of Christ on the Cross and, through Baptism, we are inserted into this mystery of salvation.

Today all together we pray, so that, while our path on this earth unfolds, She May turn to us Ger merciful eyes, that She clear for us the way, that She show us the destination, and that She shows us after this exile Jesus, the blessed fruit of Her womb: And together we say: Oh clement, oh loving, oh sweet Virgin Mary!

The Simple Request: A Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart

The downfall of Christian Czarist Russia, its destruction-by and conversion-to an atheistic globalist, elitist, communist sewer was the focus of a simple request made by the Mother of God. This happened decades before the testimony of Bella Dodd. According to Sister Lucia, Our Lady declared on July 13, 1917:

“You have seen Hell, where the souls of poor sinners go. To save them God wants to establish throughout the world the devotion to My Immaculate Heart. If people will do what I tell you, many souls will be saved, and there will be peace. The war is going to end. But if they do not stop offending God, another and worse war will break out in the reign of Pius XI. When you see a night illumined by an unknown light, know that it is the great sign that God gives you, that He is going to punish the world for its crimes by means of war, hunger, persecution of the Church and of the Holy Father. To forestall this, I shall come to ask for the Consecration of Russia to My Immaculate Heart and the Communion of Reparation on the First Saturdays. If they heed My requests, Russia will be converted, and there will be peace. If not, she shall spread her errors throughout the world, promoting wars and persecutions of the Church; the good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer, various nations will be annihilated; in the end, My Immaculate Heart shall triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to Me, which will be converted, and some time of peace will be given to the world.”

Not only has the consecration of Russia to Our Lady’s immaculate heart, per Her specific instruction, not occurred but the Church has fallen into a “torrent of lies” about its failure to do so.

The Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary

The birthday of the Mother of God

By Scott P. Richert

The Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary was celebrated at least by the sixth century, when St. Romanos the Melodist, an Eastern Christian who composed many of the hymns used in the Eastern Catholic and Eastern Orthodox liturgies, composed a hymn for the feast. The feast spread to Rome in the seventh century, but it was a couple more centuries before it was celebrated throughout the West.

Quick Facts:
  •  Date: September 8
  •  Type of Feast: Feast
  •  Readings: Micah 5:1-4A or Romans 8:28-30; Psalm 13:6AB, 6C;Matthew 1:1-16, 18-23 or Matthew 1:18-23 (full text here)
  •  Prayers: The Hail Mary
  •  Other Names for the Feast: The Birth of the Blessed Virgin Mary; The Virgin Mary’s Birthday

History of the Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary: The source for the story of the birth of the Blessed Virgin Mary is the Protoevangelium of James, an apocryphal gospel written about A.D. 150. From it, we learn the names of Mary’s parents, Joachim and Anna, as well as the tradition that the couple was childless until an angel appeared to Anna and told her that she would conceive. (Many of the same details appear also in the later apocryphal Gospel of the Nativity of Mary.) The traditional date of the feast, September 8, falls exactly nine months after the feast of the Immaculate Conception of Mary. Perhaps because of its close proximity to the feast of the Assumption of Mary, the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary is not celebrated today with the same solemnity as the Immaculate Conception. It is, nonetheless, a very important feast, because it prepares the way for the birth of Christ.

The Blessed Virgin Mary: “She is acknowledged and honored as being truly the mother of God and of the redeemer…. She is clearly the mother of the members of Christ … since she has by her charity joined in bringing about the birth of believers in the Church, who are members of its head. Mary, Mother of Christ, Mother of the Church” (CCC:963).

Mary’s prayer is revealed to us at the dawning of the fullness of time. Before the incarnation of the Son of God, and before the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, her prayer cooperates in a unique way with the Father’s plan of loving kindness: at the Annunciation, for Christ’s conception; at Pentecost, for the formation of the Church, his body (cf. Lk 1:38; Acts 1:14). In the faith of his humble handmaid, the Gift of God found the acceptance he had awaited from the beginning of time. She whom the Almighty made “full of grace” responds by offering her whole being: “Behold I am the handmaid of the Lord; let it be done to me according to your word” “Fiat”: this is Christian prayer: to be wholly God’s, because he is wholly ours. The Gospel reveals to us how Mary prays and intercedes in faith. At Cana, the mother of Jesus asks her son for the needs of a wedding feast (Jn 2:1-12); this is the sign of another feast – that of the wedding of the Lamb where he gives his body and blood at the request of the Church, his Bride. It is at the hour of the New Covenant, at the foot of the cross (cf. Jn 19:25-27), that Mary is heard as the Woman, the new Eve, the true “Mother of all the living” (CCC: 2617-2618).

The woman I love, the Blessed Virgin Mary by Venerable Fulton Sheen

She is clearly the mother of the members of Christ … since she has by her charity joined in bringing about the birth of believers in the Church, who are members of its head. Mary, Mother of Christ, Mother of the Church” (CCC:963).

How to face the things that are coming?

“Let us have confident recourse to the protection of Mary. Before showing how confidently we can trust in the patronage of the Blessed Virgin, it will be well to consider our destination and our pitiful situation. It is unfortunate to have enemies; however, it is certainly more dangerous to have them but not know them. It will help us therefore to identify our enemies.

“We are human; we are sinful. As human beings, hell is our enemy; as sinners, heaven is our enemy. The devil unjustly wants us damned; God justly want us punished. Thus we have heaven and hell against us and we are in the middle, exposed to both the wrath of God and the cunning of the devil. How can we protect ourselves from two opponents as powerful as these?

“Do no worry, my brothers and sisters. In Mary, we have a defender against the anger of heaven and the fury of hell. She can disarm the justice of God and defeat the designs of the devil. She frightens the enemy of our souls, for she is as strong as an army prepared for battle. She is that sturdy tower which no enemy can storm; a thousand bucklers hang upon it, all shields of valiant men. This armament is for our defense and the overthrow of our enemies. To be safe, we need only retreat to this tower and remain in it. If we have any further fear, let it be the fear of alienating ourselves from Mary and her protection. Let us then be confident and fear nothing. Yet I hear someone object: we must dread not only the fury of the devil, but also the just anger of God who is, unfortunately, too often seriously provoked by our sins. This is what terrifies us; this is what makes us falter. It is true that good people have Mary as a protector in every crisis of life; but we are not good, we are sinners. God is vexed with us. Who can deliver us from him? No one can resist the Almighty. If he wants to punish us because of our sins, who can prevent him? Mary can by her intercession. She has more influence with God than the whole company of saints in heaven….

“The grace we lost by sin, Mary found. She did not find grace lost by herself, because she never lost it. It was the grace we had lost that she found. Let us search for that lost grace; let us search for it through Mary. She always finds what she is looking for and can never look in vain. Mary’s quests are never fruitless; neither will ours be if we seek our lost grace through her” (Source: Blessed Dominic of the Mother of God, +1849 A.D., Magnificat, Vol. 17, No. 3, May 2015, pp. 172-173).
