The Original Icon was then put on an easel in Saint Peter’s Basilica next to Michelangelo’s Pietà and was mysteriously, so very wonderfully kept next to Michelangelo’s Pietà on Our Lady’s original feast day FOR EXACTLY 33 HOURS – allegedly for Jesus’ 33 years on earth.
The Magnificent Icon of Our Lady Mediatrix of All Graces® was then placed on a large easel next to Michelangelo’s Magnificent Pietà “The Greatest Sculpture in the World” - inside the very protected glassed-in area that shields The Pietà. It was on Our Lady Mediatrix of All Graces original Feast Day. Despite every effort to get The Miraculous Icon® away from The Pietà – even with the direct-in-person appeal to the Basilica’s security guards from Roman Curia Cardinal Stafford (who then blessed the Icon), the original Mediatrix Icon was by a very great grace and alleged sign, for all to see, so very wonderfully mysteriously left next to the Pietà, inside Saint Peter’s Basilica, for exactly 33 hours: allegedly for the 33 years Jesus was on earth.
Directly after Pope John Paul II singularly blessed the Original Icon of “Our Lady Mediatrix of All God’s Graces” next to The Pietà in Saint Peter’s Basilica, Holy Father went outside Saint Peter’s Basilica to the Altar at the top of Saint Peter’s Square and celebrated mass for 500,000 representatives of the World’s Ecclesial Movements and Catholic Organizations from all over the world! Before imparting his final blessing of that Papal Mass [with ‘Our Lady Mediatrix of All of God's Graces' Icon nearby, inside Saint Peter's Basilica], Pope John Paul II stated to all of the world’s representatives in a profound, telling reflection: “We feel the special presence of the Mother of Jesus, Mary most holy, in the center of this Roman and universal Cenacle…. We commend to the Queen of Apostles the (Ecclesial) movements and other forms of missionary commitment which have arisen in recent years. In Mary’s hands we place the universal mission of the whole Church….” (Pope John Paul II’s profound reflection was in the front page feature story entitled “We place Church’s mission in Mary’s hands”, with a photo of the 500,000 at Mass, in The Vatican’s Official Newspaper, L’Osservatore Romano June 3,1998.)

The Church’s “Doctrine” of Mary’s vital Role as Mediatrix and Dispenser of All Graces is explicitly and definitively portrayed only by this Sacred Mediatrix Icon. It was ALMOST unanimously declared A “DOGMA” by all the 2,400 Bishops of the World who were at Vatican II – and was again being considered.
