Return to Our Lady of America

Total Solar Eclipse on the 2024 Solemnity of the Annunciation

“The heavens declare the Glory of God;

and the firmament proclaims the Work of His Hands.”  Psalm 19:1

Are we ready for the Great Blessing of God?

Our Lord is Blessing the world, the United States of America in particular, through His Most Holy Mother, Our Lady of America, The Immaculate Virgin, Patroness of our Land!

Sister Mary Ephrem, whom Our Lord calls His ‘little white dove’ – visionary of Our Lady of America – is identified by Our Lord as the ‘sign of peace!’ Our Lord Jesus said to Sister on July 1, 1955, Feast of the Most Precious Blood of Our Lord Jesus:

“Thou thyself shall be the sign, the sign I will give to the world,

a little white dove,

a sign of Peace,

yes the Reign of Peace in the world.”

The following document provides the details of the journey of life of Sister Mary Ephrem and her Mystical experiences, and how they are on display with the 2017 and 2024 total solar eclipses. It is an astounding Plan of God that the 2024 eclipse occurs on the Solemnity of the Annunciation of the Lord, passing across the places Our Lady Appeared to Sister Mary Ephrem!

Our Lady of America continues to await the fulfillment of Her 1956 Request, that is, that Her Bishops of the United States process a statue of Our Lady of America into the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception in Washington D.C. and permanently honor Her there. She Promised more Miracles than at Lourdes and Fatima if fulfilled. Many throughout the nation and the world pray for this fulfillment by the Bishops, and for the greatly needed Miracles, as we long for the peace, purity and Divine Indwelling Our Lady Came to Bring!

August 21, 2017 marks the most recent total solar eclipse across the United States of America. 33 days later, that is, September 23, 2017, the Revelation 12 event took place as seen by all in the heavens. On November 20, 2016, Feast of Christ the King and last day of the Year of Mercy, an astronomical event began that lasted nine and a half months, culminating in startling concurrence with the vision of Revelation 12, an event unique in the history of man. On November 20, 2016, Jupiter (the king planet) entered into the body (womb) of the constellation Virgo (the virgin). Jupiter, due its retrograde motion, spent the next 9½ months within the womb of Virgo. Jupiter exited out of the womb of Virgo. Upon Jupiter’s exit (birth), having occurred on September 23, 2017, we see the constellation Virgo with the sun rise directly behind it (the woman clothed with the sun). At the feet of Virgo, we find the moon. Upon her head a crown of twelve stars, formed by the usual nine stars of the constellation Leo, and with the addition of the planets Mercury, Venus, and Mars.

“A Great Sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of 12 stars on her head.” Revelation 12

Let us now journey through the life of Sister Mary Ephrem and witness the Work of God in the heavens with the April 8, 2024 total solar eclipse. This is a GREAT BLESSING!

Also Planned by Our Lord, to the astonishment of all, the crossing of the two eclipses (2017 and 2024) is in the vicinity of St. Louis. While stationed in St. Louis, Sister Mary Ephrem did not receive Apparitions, yet this was the recent diocese of Archbishop Raymond Burke (now Cardinal). It was Archbishop Burke who, on May 31, 2007 – Feast of the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, wrote to the Bishops of the United States in defense and promotion of Our Lady of America and Sister Mary Ephrem. Archbishop Burke included the following:

“A specific request of Our Lady of America was that her statue be placed in the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. There is a providential connection between Sister Mary Ephrem and the late Archbishop Bishop John Francis Noll of the Diocese of Fort Wayne, who is celebrated as the Apostle of the  National Shrine. The original apparitions of Our Lady of America to Sister Mary Ephrem took place in the chapel of the Precious Blood Sisters Convent in Kneipp Springs Sanitorium, near Rome City, Indiana. Archbishop Bishop Noll, who died in 1956, maintained a summer residence at the Sanitorium, within a few hundred feet of the place of the apparitions. While the National Shrine is the largest shrine in the world at which there was not a previous apparition, the private revelation to Sister Mary Ephrem very much confirms the mission of the National Shrine.”

Additionally, Archbishop Burke stated:

“The prayer attached to the devotion also received the imprimatur of the then Monsignor Leibold, Vicar General of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. Archbishop Leibold was Sister Mary Ephrem’s spiritual director from the time that he was Vicar General of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati until he died in 1972. Archbishop Leibold was always clear that the approved devotion had its origin in private revelation received by Sister Mary Ephrem over many years. 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.”

“As one deeply devoted to fostering the devotion to Our Lady of Guadalupe in our nation, I have wondered about the relationship of the devotion to Our Lady of America to the devotion to Our Lady of Guadalupe. Archbishop Leibold, in fact, raised the question with Sister Mary Ephrem. Sister Mary Ephrem responded that Our Lady of Guadalupe is Empress of all the Americas, whereas “Our Lady of America, The Immaculate Virgin,” is the Patroness of our nation, the United States of America. The two devotions are, in fact, completely harmonious. As our late and most beloved Pope John Paul II reminded us, Our Lady of Guadalupe, Mother of America and Star of the New Evangelization, draws all of the nations of America into unity in carrying out the new evangelization. Our Lady of America calls the people of our nation to the new evangelization through a renewed dedication to purity in love.
