This unique Sacred Icon is linked to “Our Lady of Fatima” and to “Our Lady of Medjugorje.” Its vital purpose was foretold on the feast day of “Our Lady of Fatima” which is: through Mary’s Most Powerful Role as Mediatrix of All Graces– Mary gives us vast outpourings of All of God’s Graces, and Protection against every type of evil.
Exactly 73 days later (there are 73 Books in the Bible), on October 7th., “The Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary” the Icon’s vital, two-part purpose was foretold in a profound second dream which was: whoever venerates Mary through her Most Powerful Role as “Mediatrix of all Graces” will receive vast outpourings of all of God’s graces, and also will receive protection against every evil.
Without arranging any of these 13 dates: on the Feast Day “The Motherhood of the Blessed Virgin Mary”, “Mary’s Way to Jesus Apostolate” was established. Two days later, on October 13th, 1996 on “The Anniversary of The Great Miracle of the Sun in Fatima” and allegedly through “Our Lady of The Rosary”/”Our Lady of Fatima”, the Icon was offered to be painted by one of the world’s finest artists: mystic, and world renowned Marian Visionary Josyp Terelya from the Ukraine – most surprisingly, during a Saint Louis de Montfort Religious Conference.
The inspired artist said: “I will paint the Icon for you, if you allow me to paint this Icon with ‘the true, real face of Mary’” that he saw when he was miraculously saved by Mary from certain death, and six other times! On the 13th of November, through inspiration, instructions were given: to name the Icon “Our Lady Mediatrix of All Graces”, and to paint this principal title around Mary’s head in the universal language of the Church - Latin “DOMINA NOSTRA MEDIATRIX OMNIUM GRATIARUM” – for worldwide distribution and understanding.
On the 13th of December, three instructions were given: first, symbolically paint “The Wedding at Cana” to represent “Our Lady Advocate”; 2nd, paint “The Crucifixion with Mary Standing” to definitively also represent “Our Lady Coredemptrix” in the Icon; and third, paint an “Ichthys” prostrate at the feet of Jesus – to represent every Christian in the world, imploring His Divine Mercy! This precious Icon was finished on “Christmas Day” 1996 – “as Mary’s Gift to the entire world” given to everyone on and for the 2000th Birthday of Jesus! [There is a 4 year error in our calendars! It occurred when our present "Gregorian Calendar" was revised in the year 1582 from "The Julian Calendar".]
On the Feast of “Mary the Mother of God” January 1st, the Original Icon was blessed at the altar, at Holy Mass, in the Ukrainian Catholic Rite by Bishop Danylak in Canada. About the 13th of January, all of the money needed to pay for the Icon was given to us! On the 13th of February, the Icon was Express Mailed from Canada to the United States. The Icon mysteriously arrived at “Mary’s Way to Jesus Worldwide Apostolate” on “Saint Valentine’s Day”, on “The Feast Day of Love” – as a sign of Mary’s love for all. The large box in which the Original Miraculous Icon was shipped is Dated and Time Stamped (in military time) crossing the border into the United States exactly, on the first 13th minute of Valentine’s Day “STAMPED 00.13″ – again for Fatima.
Throughout the last twelve years, the unworthy caretaker of The Miraculous Icon® Our Lady Mediatrix of All Graces® was given over 1000 visible signs of the Number 13, assuring and guiding him, confirming how extremely important Our Lady Mediatrix of All of God’s Graces is for everyone!
