Sharing from Dory Tan at Home and the Greensides' Farm

Marmora, Ontario, Canada

Sharings during 2001-2002

2001 January 6th, First Saturday, farm

It was a nice wintry day with lots of snow as we began the Stations of the Cross.  The sun shone brightly for a short time through the clouds as we walked through the deep snow.  We reached the 10th Station and, after the apparition, Dory shared the following with us:

Once again, Dory shared that Our Lord and Our Blessed Mother are very happy and thankful with the way that we say our prayers and do the Stations of the Cross.  Dory said that Our Blessed Mother is allowing her to share this with us.  Dory usually goes to Mass at 6:00 a.m. and on December 27, 2000, after finishing her morning prayers at 5:30 a.m., she said to Our Lord, "Lord, I want to do more because what I am doing is nothing?  Give me more".

She kept asking Him this and suddenly she heard a voice.  Dory heard this voice before and knew that this was the voice of Jesus.  Jesus asked her to do a Chaplet.  Dory looked around her altar and did not want to break a Rosary to make the Chaplet.  Our Lord reminded her about the broken Rosary that she had put on her altar.  Before she was sick, someone had arranged and organized her altar so she did not know exactly where all her beads were.

Dory had a Rosary that was very special to her.  When she was in Midland, she saw a Rosary that was on a statue of Our Blessed Mother.  She said that she felt like a child and felt jealous.  She said, O Blessed Mother, the Rosary is so nice; I wish that I could get one like yours".  A member of her group gave Dory a Rosary that was very similar to the one that was on the statue.  Dory says that she treasured this Rosary and was very thankful to Our Blessed Mother that she received it.

With time, this Rosary broke and there were loose beads of this Rosary that she placed on her altar.  Because the altar had been arranged differently, Dory did not know where the beads were.  Our Lord knows everything and said to her, "Get up and I will show you the beads to make the Chaplet".

Dory walked straight to the corner where the broken Rosary was located on the altar.  Our Lord showed her the beads and asked her to make the Chaplet.  Dory did not know how many beads she had left or how many she needed to make the Chaplet.  Our Lord said to her, "Do not worry.  My Mother and your Mother too will teach you".

Dory said that what happened here reminds her of when she was in the Holy Land at Cana when Jesus spoke to her saying, "I want you to go to the place where I did My first miracle."  Dory did not know where to go.  Jesus said to her, "Do not worry.  My Mother and your Mother too will guide you".  Dory said that this is the same thing as Our Lord saying that Our Blessed Mother will teach her how to pray the Chaplet.  Our Blessed Mother taught Dory to say the Chaplet in this way:

SAY: The Creed (once)

1 Our Father, 3 Hail Mary's, 1 Glory Be "Lord Jesus, through Your most Precious Blood flowing out from Your Five Sacred Wounds, cover us and wash away our sins."

1 Our Father, 3 Hail Mary's, 1 Glory Be "Lord Jesus, through Your most Precious Blood flowing out from Your Five Sacred Wounds, cover us and wash away our sins."

1 Our Father, 3 Hail Mary's, 1 Glory Be "Lord Jesus, through Your most Precious Blood flowing out from Your Five Sacred Wounds, cover us and wash away our sins."

1 Our Father, 3 Hail Mary's, 1 Glory Be "Lord Jesus, through Your most Precious Blood flowing out from Your Five Sacred Wounds, cover us and wash away our sins."

1 Our Father, 3 Hail Mary's, 1 Glory Be "Lord Jesus, through Your most Precious Blood flowing out from Your Five Sacred Wounds, cover us and wash away our sins."

"Most Sacred Heart of Jesus and Immaculate Heart of Mother Mary, hold us and keep us in Your Hearts forever.  Amen."

This is the Chaplet of the Five Sacred Wounds of Jesus.

During the apparition on the 27th, Dory said that Our Blessed Mother reminded us that the year 2001 is just starting and saying this Chaplet is a preparation for all of us.  Our Lord and Our Blessed Mother asked Dory to spread this Chaplet to the whole world. This Chaplet is said in memory of the Five Sacred Wounds of Jesus.

Dory shared that she is going to the Philippines this coming Saturday and will not be here for the 1st Saturday in February.  When she was saying her 2:00 a.m. prayers, she began to cry.  For her, this is a dream come true.  When she was a child, she saw people giving food to the poor.  She remembers praying, "I wish that I can give food and help the poor".

Through the help and support of many people, Dory's dream is coming true.  When she goes to the Philippines, she plans to help the poor.  Dory thanks everyone for their help and support and says that she will use every penny that was given to her to complete this mission.  Our Lord and Our Blessed Mother know what this means to her.

Dory again reminded us to pray from our hearts and encourages us all to say the Chaplet in preparation for this coming year.  This is very important.  She said that she will distribute these Chaplets to everyone when she returns from the Philippines.  On 1st Saturday in March, she will give them away to those who promise to use them.  She also said that, when we say the Glory Be, we should not be embarrassed to say, "Glory be to the Father, Glory be to the Son, and Glory be to the Holy Spirit".

Dory again said, "Thank you" to everyone for their support and help in making her dream come true.  She ended by saying, "God bless you all".

2001 March 3rd, First Saturday, Farm

It was a nice day as we walked through the snow saying the Rosary and doing the Stations of the Cross.  At the 10th station and during the apparition, Dory was looking around as if seeing someone or something ---she looked happy.  After the apparition, Dory shared this with us.

Dory says that Our Blessed Mother is very happy with the prayers and the sacrifices that we are doing in spite of the cold weather.  She shares that Our Blessed Mother knows what she feels and knows what is inside her heart.  Some people are expecting messages when they come here.  We are reminded that Our Blessed Mother gave us ALL the messages already -are we doing everything that She has asked of us?  Dory was emotional when she emphasized to us that every time that we come here -Our Blessed Mother BLESSES us -this is a BIG GRACE , already.

Dory says that she is also a sinner but that she is trying her best to avoid sin and that Our Blessed Mother knows what she is trying to do and says that she is offering herself to Her and Her Son, Jesus -even to her last breath -following what Jesus has done for us --giving His last breath to save us.  He gave His life for the world.  He is not asking us to give our lives -only to share what we have with others.

Also, Our Lord and Our Blessed Mother are very happy with what we did in the Philippines.  Of all the things that we did, the MOST IMPORTANT is that we help the people and make them happy and that every cent was counted and every penny was given to Our Lord and Our Blessed Mother.  Since any help we give to our neighbors, we are doing this for Our Lord and Our Blessed Mother.  Dory says that she plans on doing it again.  She says that she no longer feels embarrassed to use her name in receiving donations for this mission.  She always asks Our Blessed Mother what to do and shares that Our Blessed Mother said this to her:

"Do not worry, anywhere you are, I am with you."

Dory shares this experience with us to prove that Our Blessed Mother is always with her.  She says that, before leaving, there was a problem with the luggage at the airport.  An airport representative told her that there was excess baggage and there was an extra charge for it.  A member of the group paid the extra charge in order to have it delivered and Dory was told that this luggage would be delayed two days.  This bothered Dory as she wanted everything to arrive at the same time so that she could begin her mission.  She says that she depended on Our Blessed Mother and believed that She would help her.  Dory shares that, five minutes before landing in the Philippines, Our Blessed Mother appeared carrying two pieces of luggage.  When we arrived at the airport, ALL our luggage was there, including the two pieces that were supposed to be delayed.

Our Blessed Mother showed us PROOF that She is always present.

What we are doing is not only helping our own souls but is also helping the people.  Dory is asking us to make Our Blessed Mother and Our Lord happy.

Always love one another and help each other.  Especially at this time -be ready.  Do not ignore what is going on and be prepared always.

To continue what we are doing and to do this from our hearts.  This life is only temporary -we are nothing.  The MOST IMPORTANT thing is to save our souls.  There is a Heaven waiting for us.

Every time that we come here (Marmora), we receive a BLESSING.  Accept the pain that we are given.  In this way, we help Jesus in His suffering.  Pray hard.  Double our prayers.

Dory says -"Look around-there are no teenagers here.  Pray for the young people.  Carry them through our prayers."  Dory was emotional when she said; "People don't understand."

Dory ends by saying; "God Bless You All."

Dory also says that she will be here (Marmora) on the 25th of this month -the Feast of the Annunciation.

2001 March 25th, Farm

It was a nice crisp wintery day as we did the Stations of the Cross saying our Rosary as we walked.  After the apparition, at the 10th station, Dory shared this with us.

She thanks everyone for ALL their prayers and says that this is a very SPECIAL day. We are reminded that, by doing this sacrifice, it is a BIG help for Our Blessed Mother and a GRACE for us.  How many people are doing what we are doing?  Our Blessed Mother wants us to continue doing these prayers and sacrifices -DON'T GET TIRED -DON'T GIVE UP.  Dory says that she will never get tired and will continue doing what Our Blessed Mother is asking of her.  She compares it to the same as NOT getting tired of going to Mass.

Our Blessed Mother wants Dory to share this with us.  She wants us ALL to surrender ourselves to Her.  On April 7th, we are asked to write our petitions on a piece of paper and give them to Dory who will bring them and offer them to Our Blessed Mother (at the 10th Station) Who, in turn, will carry them and offer them to Her Son, Jesus.  We are asked to forget everything especially our past sins.  SURRENDER ourselves and our problems to Her.  Our Blessed Mother knows what is BEST for us and is doing something SPECIAL to HELP us.  She does not want us to worry and wants us to convince our families to come here on the 1st Saturday in April with their petitions.  Our Blessed Mother PROMISES that She will take care of everything and that She will carry and offer ALL -our families, our relations and whatever problems that we may have - to Our Lord.

Our Blessed Mother is very happy with our prayers.  How many thousands of people have come here and, just because they did not see, have not returned.  It is the same as Fatima and Lourdes -not everybody saw but they believed.  We must have FAITH.  She is here with us and She is BLESSING each one of us every time that we come here.  Our Blessed Mother is asking us to continue what we are doing because this is how we help our own souls, help the world and help our families.  She reminds us NOT to worry.  She is carrying us ALL -carrying the whole world and She NEVER gets tired.  Please FOLLOW what She is asking us to do.

Dory says that she too, never gets tired of following what Our Blessed Mother and Our Lord want her to do and she wants to do MORE.  She does not do this for herself BUT for everyone-for the whole world.  She knows the Our Blessed Mother is LISTENING to our prayers and is asking us to surrender ourselves -ACCEPT and FOLLOW what Our Blessed Mother is asking of us.  This will make Her very happy.  Dory emphasizes to us that we must NEVER GIVE UP and to continue what we are doing and reminds us that we are BLESSED each time that we come here.

Dory ends by saying; "God Bless You All."

2001 April 7th, First Saturday, Farm

Many people gathered together before beginning the Stations of the Cross.  As requested in the previous sharing, petitions were given to Dory who, in turn, would give them to Our Blessed Mother.  Our Blessed Mother promised that She would offer ALL of these petitions to Her Son, Jesus. Before starting the Stations, Dory shared this with us.

She shares that she wanted to do more for Our Blessed Mother and Our Lord on March 25th, the feast of the Annunciation to thank Them for healing her from her illness.  Dory asked herself ;  " How can I thank Them?  I want to do more;  I want to follow Jesus-to save souls."  She was going to do the Stations on her knees in private, at midnight, as she didn't want people to think that she was showing off.  Our Blessed Mother reminded her that Jesus suffered in public, in front of many people, and She asked Dory to do the same.  This is when Our Blessed Mother asked Dory to gather and carry the petitions and give them to Her at the 10th Station and She, in turn, would offer them to Her Son, Jesus.  Dory was willing and eager to do this sacrifice especially in this season of Lent.

Dory reminds each one of us to follow what Our Blessed Mother is asking of us.  Have STRONG FAITH and BELIEVE that Our Blessed Mother is going to offer ALL of these petitions to Her Son, Jesus. Dory says that she will pray hard for every one of us.

Offer ALL our problems, our sins, our worries, sickness EVERYTHING especially our souls to Them.  ALL is in the hands of Our Lord, Jesus.  Pray that They will take care of these petitions and THANK THEM for everything.

We began the Stations and noticed that Dory was doing the Stations on her knees.  She had all the petitions with her and we watched in awe as she walked the WHOLE Way of the Cross on her knees even up the hills until the 10th Station.  Here, she offered the petitions to Our Blessed Mother during the apparition.

After the apparition, Dory asked us to continue to the 14th Station where Our Blessed Mother asked her to burn the petitions.  She continued doing the Stations on her knees, and at the 14th Station, before lighting a fire, Dory shared that she believes Our Blessed Mother will keep Her promise and give these petitions to Her Son, Jesus.  Dory emphasizes that she would NOT do this if she did not believe in what Our Blessed Mother promised.

What she did on her knees is nothing and says that she wants to do more.  She does this to help save souls and asks us to give our hearts to Our Lord and Our Blessed Mother BELIEVE that Our Blessed Mother WILL take these petitions to Her Son, Jesus.

Dory then burned the petitions kneeling beside the fire until every piece of paper was in ashes.  Afterwards, a small group of people went with her as she carried the ashes back to the 10th Station and placed them on the ground in front of the wooden cross behind the Station.

She prayed the Our Father, Hail Mary and the Glory Be.  We noticed that she paused during the Hail Mary.  The sun shone brightly for a few minutes (it had been cloudy and cold throughout the day) and seemed to pulsate radiating a loving warmth.  Dory shared that Our Blessed Mother spoke to her during the Hail Mary (when she paused) and said that She is very happy and said this to her;  "I am going to shine a light on you to prove that your petitions are accepted."

The sun was this light and the small group of people present were witness to this.

This was a very special day for us but especially for Dory as today was also her birthday.  She was radiant as we sang "Happy Birthday" and she ended by saying;

"God Bless You All."

2001 May 5th, First Saturday, Farm

It was a nice sunny day as we walked the Way of the Cross saying the Rosary between each Station.  At the 10th Station a nice
Priest blessed us and, after the apparition, Dory shared this with us.

She says that Our Blessed Mother is very happy that more people are here today.  More people means more prayer and this makes Our Lord and Our Blessed Mother very happy.  Dory shares that, last month on April 7th, was a most special day for her and she repeats that the decision to do the Stations of the Cross on her knees that day pleased Our Lord and Our Blessed Mother very much.  Dory wanted to thank Them for everything, especially healing her from her illness, and wanted to do the Stations in private but Our Blessed Mother requested that she do this sacrifice and suffering in public just as Her Son, Jesus did.  Our Blessed Mother was happy with this decision as this shows the value of sacrifice by helping to save many souls and we are doing this for the world and to atone for our sins.

This day was especially important to Dory as it was her Birthday and she reminds everyone that we must have STRONG FAITH and BELIEVE that Our Blessed Mother is always there for us. Do not worry--She has carried our petitions to Her Son, Jesus and says that He has accepted ALL of them and we must BELIEVE that He will look after ALL our problems and requests.

Do not be upset if petitions are not answered right away.  Be patient and do not lose faith.  Our Blessed Mother promises that our petitions will be answered.

DON'T GET TIRED and DO NOT GIVE UP.  Always love one another and go to Mass every Sunday.  Say the Rosary and also say the Chaplet of the Five Sacred Wounds of Jesus. Hurry and spread the Chaplet before the time comes.  Don't forget about saving our souls as our goal is to go to Heaven.

Many people were disappointed that nothing happened in the year 2000 and have lost faith. Dory reminds us that Our Lord and Our Blessed Mother are giving us a chance.  DO NOT WASTE THIS CHANCE.

PRAY, PRAY, PRAY.

Our Blessed Mother tells us that all who come here receive a BLESSING.

Dory shares that she will be going to the Philippines tomorrow (Sunday, May 6th) and will be there for three weeks.  She says that Our Blessed Mother requested her to go and help the very poor school children by assisting them with their basic needs such as books, pens, pencils etc.  The people are very poor and she is not embarrassed to say that, when she was little, she was also very poor like them.

Dory did not tell anyone about this mission and shares the reason why.  It has always been her dream to go back to her homeland to help the poor and was fortunate enough to receive some income tax refund making it possible for her to go at this time. She shares that people have been very generous with donations in the past and she did not want to share the purpose of this mission because she didn't want people to feel that they should donate again.  She will use the money that has already been donated and says that she was concerned because there are no members of the group who will witness what is being done with this money.  After sharing this concern, Our Blessed Mother answered her by saying;

"Am I not witness enough?"

Dory says that Our Blessed Mother is witness to ALL who helped in any way with her mission and more and more BLESSINGS will come as a result of what we are doing.  Spreading the Chaplet is also a part of her plan in the Philippines.

Dory thanks everyone again and ends by saying;  "God Bless You All."

Note:  The Chaplet of the Five Sacred Wounds of Jesus is explained in the January 2001 sharing.

2001 June 2nd, First Saturday, Farm

Many people gathered to join in prayer and participate in doing the Stations of the Cross.  Dory was welcomed back as she had just returned from her mission in the Philippines.  At the 10th Station, two young girls sang a beautiful song related to "believing in miracles".  During this song, Our Blessed Mother appeared to Dory and after the apparition Dory shared this with us.

She thanked the girls and said that this singing made Our Blessed Mother very happy.  She shares that many people, before beginning the Stations, were asking her if Our Blessed Mother will appear today.  Dory says that Our Blessed Mother always knows what is in her(Dory) heart and She will let us know ( through Dory) when She will not appear here anymore.  She reminds us that we should not expect any more messages and that ALL has been given to prepare our souls.  Are we following the messages that have already been given? We are reminded that it is the same as at Fatima when Lucia shared the messages from Our Blessed Mother.  We must BELIEVE and FOLLOW what She is asking of us.

Dory shares that Our Blessed Mother is always with her especially when she needs Her or when she is praying for or trying to help others.  She follows Our Blessed Mother's requests and shares what she is allowed to share with us.  An example of this sharing is an experience that she had in the Philippines.  Dory wanted to meet with and be among the native people (Baluga-Aborigenes) and was introduced to a lady with an interesting conversion story.  Before the most devastating volcanic eruption of the 20th Century (Mt. Pinatubo, June 15th, 1991), this lady was very, very rich--- a billionaire in Philippine society.  Overnight, she was left devastated and poor --losing all of her property and her finances.  Shortly afterwards, she became sick with cancer and was preparing for her death.  One night she saw the image of a face and she heard a voice saying that she would be cured.  Within a short period of time, she experienced a cure from her illness and she realized that the image that she saw and heard was the Face of Jesus.  This lady questioned God by asking Him;  " Why only now?  Why not before when I had so much money --I could have helped so many people?"  She realized that she was not the same person before and is now so much closer to God than when she was rich.  She expected people to pay their debts and realized that her money was like a god to her and she was not happy.

During this meeting, Dory planned to financially help 100-150 people but instead was surprised to see that more than 200 people came making her feel concerned about not having enough money to give to everyone.  Dory privately prayed to Our Blessed Mother asking for help --she wondered how she was going to manage.  The money was going fast and she even asked for money from her sister and other members of her family who were present.  Everything was gone and she asked Our Blessed Mother --"What will I do?"

She opened her bag that was near and reached in to look for more and unexpectedly found a bundle of money rolled up with an elastic.  This was a surprise to her but she was thankful that now she was able to give each person who was present some money.

Dory wants us to know that this proves that Our Blessed Mother is always with her and through STRONG FAITH and
PRAYER --She will never abandon us.  Always stay with Our Lord and Our Blessed Mother --do not ask-"Why only now?"

DON'T GET TIRED and DON'T GIVE UP.

Dory once again thanks everyone for their help and support in her mission.  Every single penny was used to help the children, the poor and the sick.  Our Blessed Mother is witness to the tears that were shed from joy.  Dory says that her mission was complete.

She ends by saying; "God Bless You All."

P.S.:  We were all fortunate to be Blessed by two nice Priests who were present at the 10th Station.

2001 July 7th, First Saturday, Farm

The sun shone brightly as many people gathered together to say the Rosary as we walked the Way of the Cross.  At the 9th Station Dory shares that Our Blessed Mother requested that only the very sick, those who are terminally ill, enter inside the rope area at the 10th Station.  The reason for this is that Our Blessed Mother wants to give some comfort to those who are suffering from illness.  When we reached the 10th Station, this request was followed through as sick people gathered around this special site.  After the apparition, Dory went from sick person to sick person and gently placed her hands on each one, made the Sign of the Cross on the forehead and prayed silently for a few minutes.  It was interesting to see as Dory looked into the crowd and seemed to be directly guided to each person who needed these prayers.  The look on her face was as though she was oblivious to the rest of the world and it was obvious to us that this was not from Dory herself.  We continued to sing until she was finished and she then returned to her kneeling position.  She immediately -Rested in the Spirit- for a short period of time.  She then shared this with us.

Dory confided later that, while she was-- Resting in the Spirit -for that short time, Our Blessed Mother told her that anyone who came to her and asked for this Blessing, she could not refuse to give it to them but was allowed to do so only if people did ask for it.  This proves that this Blessing was from the Holy Spirit because people were inspired to ask for it.

She thanks everyone for all their prayers and says that, since she has been coming here (since 1992), this has never happened to her before.  Even though Dory felt that she was not worthy, she cannot refuse what Our Lord and Our Blessed Mother ask of her.  Our Blessed Mother knows that these sick people need comfort and She does not want them to lose FAITH and HOPE and wants us to TRUST and BELIEVE that this comfort and love is coming from Her.

Dory shares that it was because of her own PRAYERS and FAITH that she was cured of her illness last year.  Our Lord and Our Blessed Mother know what is in our hearts and They do not want us to lose FAITH and HOPE in Them.  They are always here with us and want us to continue what we are doing.

Many people have called Dory to share that their petitions (from April 7th, 2001) have been answered.  She reminds us to be patient-BELIEVE and have FAITH that all our petitions will be granted.  Everyone received this promise from Our Blessed Mother.

We are also reminded that material things are only temporary and that we are wrong if we waste our time worrying about things-- like if we don't get a certain job or even wishing that we win the lottery.  By doing this, we are thinking in human terms and not putting our FAITH and TRUST in Our Lord and Our Blessed Mother.  They know what we need and will grant us, if we pray, all the graces that we need to choose what is best for each one of us.  By thinking only like a human being, we cannot reach Heaven.  Dory says that she has learned a lot and emphasizes to us that we should let Our Lord and Our Blessed Mother lead us by putting our TOTAL TRUST in Them.

She gives us a personal example of her own weakness as a human being.  When she was watching television, she saw a man who was preaching and said to herself; "I wish that I can do the same way that he is doing."

Afterwards, she felt embarrassed about feeling jealous and prayed to Our Blessed Mother.  Dory was touched by how She responded.  Our Blessed Mother answered her by saying;

"My Child, You don't need to preach.  The way that you are doing----you are getting more than what you wish."

We are reminded how important it is to give our hearts and our souls to Our Lord and Our Blessed Mother because They are sharing Their Hearts with us.  Many people find this difficult to do and hard to accept.

We are encouraged to love our neighbor.  It is difficult to forgive and forget and, as human beings, we forget that we must give our hearts and souls to Our Lord and Our Blessed Mother.  We must pray for the GRACES in our hearts to change our attitudes and it is only through Them that we will obtain these GRACES to change our lives.

Remember that this life is only temporary and the second life has NO END.  Heaven has no end and hell has no end.  Purgatory is temporary BUT the suffering is like in hell and we do not know how long we will suffer there so we must CHOOSE and STRIVE to go to Heaven.  The most important thing is to follow the will and words of God through the messages given to us by Our Lord and Our Blessed Mother.

Continue what we are doing.  Sacrifice -- do not complain and offer everything to Our Lord and Our Blessed Mother for our salvation.  Believe it or not -- Our Blessed Mother is HERE and She is BLESSING us.

Dory ends by saying; "God Bless You All."

2001 August 4th, First Saturday, Farm

It was a very warm sunny day as we began the Stations and Dory seemed to be sad when she started to say the Rosary.  At the 10th Station, just before the apparition, Dory was smiling as she looked slowly from side to side at the people who were gathered around the 10th Station.

At the time of the apparition, the atmosphere was peaceful as a young lady sang a beautiful song and during this time, Dory was seen to prostrate herself on the ground in front of the Station.  After the apparition, we sang "Our Lady of Marmora" and afterwards, Dory made a special request by asking us to sing "On This Day, O Beautiful Mother".  She seemed to be much happier and then shared this with us.

Once again, she shares that she is thankful for all our prayers and for coming here today.  Dory says that she cannot explain how very happy she feels right now.  She shares with us that Our Blessed Mother knows what is in her heart knows why she felt so sad at the beginning of the Stations.  Dory explains that many years ago, there were lots of people coming here and she feels sad because there are many people who don't come here anymore.  Some people make excuses by blaming the weather and do not come here because it is too cold or it is raining.  Today, the weather is beautiful and Dory expected more people but, instead, was sad and crying because she did not get her expectation.  She was crying for Our Blessed Mother as she did not want Her to be sad or disappointed.  Many people shared their experiences with Dory.  Some experienced seeing the sun spin, many smelt the fragrance of roses or incense and a few even said that they saw Our Blessed Mother. Dory confirms that these experiences are real and true.

Dory feels sad that many people, because they did not feel or have these experiences again, have lost interest in this place she wonders where they are?  Our Blessed Mother appeared to Dory today to comfort her to take away her sadness by saying this to her;

"Don't cry for Me, cry for My Children who are losing their faith."

Dory asked Our Blessed Mother; "How can I help to give them back their faith?"

Our Blessed Mother asked Dory to prostrate herself on the ground for these people who are losing their faith.  If people only knew that the signs received are GRACES they last forever in our lives and, by losing our FAITH, we do not maintain these graces.  Our Blessed Mother is very happy with all the people who put their faith in and give their hearts to Our Lord and Her even though they do not see any physical signs.  We are more blessed if we believe and do not see.

Our Blessed Mother is begging us to come here-to this special place to make more sacrifice.  She is ALWAYS blessing us even if we don't see Her.  Dory shares that she is doing everything she can sacrificing for people's faith to become stronger.  She wants people to come back Our Blessed Mother gave us this SPECIAL PLACE and Dory does not understand why we cannot come here and ACCEPT the BLESSINGS that Our Lord and Our Blessed Mother are giving us.  There are no excuses and we are reminded that the time here on earth is only temporary but the happiness is forever in Heaven.

Dory is begging us not to give up continue to come here and surrender ourselves to Our Lord and Our Blessed Mother by accepting the GRACES and BLESSINGS given to us.  Follow what They want us to do and this will make Them very happy.

Dory shares that, during her prayers and sacrifice, she asked Our Blessed Mother;

"Is this pain that I am feeling helping souls or is it useless?"

Our Blessed Mother answered Dory only by looking at her smiling.

Dory reminds us that Our Blessed Mother is always with us and ends by saying;

"God Bless You All."

2001 September 1st, First Saturday, Farm

The weather was beautiful as we gathered together and prayed the Rosary as we walked the Way of the Cross.  At the beginning of our prayers, a very nice Filipino Priest blessed Dory and all the people who were present.  At the 10th Station and, during the apparition, Dory was seen to sprinkle Holy Water in the direction where she was looking and was heard to say; "Jesus, I Love You" three times.  After a minute or so, she seemed to be very happy.

Afterwards, Dory shared this with us.  She said that, at the 9th Station, something was bothering her and she did not feel comfortable.  This feeling was even stronger as she approached the 10th Station.  Dory knows that the devil can also appear in the form of Our Blessed Mother and she was concerned about this.  She offered her heart to Our Lord and Our Blessed Mother and knows that They will prevent anyone or anything from bothering her.  Dory heard a voice ( she recognized this voice as that of Our Blessed Mother) that told her to sprinkle Holy Water three times in the direction of the apparition.  If the vision did NOT go away, then It is Real.

During the apparition at the 10th Station, Dory did as she was instructed and sprinkled Holy Water three times at Our Blessed Mother when She appeared.  Our Blessed Mother did not speak at that time BUT She did NOT go away.  She then spoke to Dory and this made her very happy.  Dory emphasizes to us that it is because of her FAITH that nobody can get her and she wants us all to have the same FAITH too.  Each time that we are bothered, we must not give in and we must fight.  Ask for the grace to fight by saying ;

JESUS, I LOVE YOU; JESUS, I LOVE YOU; JESUS, I LOVE YOU.

Dory shares with us that Our Blessed Mother is very happy and thankful to all for being here today and for all the prayers and sacrifices.  She knows that it is difficult for all of us to continue with our prayers and doing what we are doing.  We are reminded that, even if we don't see Our Lord and Our Blessed Mother, there is a miracle happening in every minute.  We must have STRONG FAITH and we will receive miracles through this FAITH.  Dory believes that it is a miracle that she is here today and it is through her own FAITH that she was healed from her illness last year.

She shares an experience that she had this past Monday.  She normally goes to Mass each morning at 7:00 a.m. and this Mass is usually followed by an 8:30 a.m. Mass.  This particular morning there was no 8:30 Mass so she was happy that she would be able to stay a little longer in the Church to pray.  Her husband left her there to pray as he usually does.  She was completely alone in the Church and it was very quiet as she was talking and praying silently to Our Lord and Our Blessed Mother.  She prayed to Them to help lead her and show her the way because she only wants to follow Them-to do the Will of God.

She said; "Lord You know that if my mind causes me to sin-make me a vegetable.  I want to follow you with NO sin."  She makes it clear that if she causes any problems because of sin then she would rather be a vegetable so that she could sin no more.

While still in the Church praying, Dory asked;  "Do people believe me ?  Please give me a sign -- the sign that I want is to see a Priest and then I know that the people believe me."

She finished her Rosary and her other prayers.  It was now near 9:00 a.m. and she knew that her husband would soon be coming to pick her up.  Dory felt disappointed that she did not see a Priest in the Church and stood up to leave and say good-bye.  She said to herself -- "Now I know that I am not real and I am just fooling the people."

As she was getting up she looked at the altar and saw someone there -- it was Padre Pio.  He spoke to Dory saying;

"Am I not enough--the sign that you are looking for?"

She was emotional, happy and thankful as her prayers were more than answered knowing that Padre Pio is also a Priest.

Dory promised Our Lord and Our Blessed Mother that she would continue what she is doing and says that if she could do more -- she will do it.

She reminds us that Our Lord and Our Blessed Mother are always with us and encourages us to continue what we are doing and, just because our prayers are not answered right away, we will always get what we ask for if we pray and offer our hearts to Them.  Follow the Will of God and do not dwell on how we feel as a human being-do NOT give up.

Dory shares that she will NOT be coming to Marmora at midnight on the eve of Our Blessed Mother's Birthday but will be at the farm on Saturday, September 8th at the usual time during the day to celebrate Her Birthday.  She also shares that Our Blessed Mother requested a favor from us.  She wants us to pray at midnight on the eve of Her Birthday (12 o'clock midnight) wherever we are (in our home etc.)  Saying these prayers;

THE ROSARY;
THE DIVINE MERCY CHAPLET;
and THE CHAPLET OF THE FIVE SACRED WOUNDS.

Dory hopes that we are all able to come to this special place to celebrate Our Blessed Mother's Birthday on September 8th.

She says that she feels very happy with us all being here to pray and hopes that we continue with what we are doing and is asking us NOT to give up.  Always love one another and help each other.  She is also asking us to pray for her and says that she is always praying for us. She emphasizes that she just wants to do the Will of God and ends by saying;

"God Bless You All."

2001 September 8th, Feast of Our Blessed Mother's Birthday, Farm

There were many people present to celebrate Our Blessed Mother's Birthday on this warm sunny day.  Before beginning the Stations of the Cross, Dory shared again what happened when she was praying in the Church on Monday, August 27th.  She emphasizes the experience that she had and wants to make us aware of it.  This experience is all explained in the sharing of September 1st, (1st Saturday) of this year.  Dory is very thankful to Padre Pio for loving her, comforting her and being with her.  She again reminds us to surrender ourselves to Our Lord and Our Blessed Mother by giving our hearts totally to Them.

Our Blessed Mother also wants to bless our Rosaries today---the same as She did last year.  She wants us to use this special Rosary when we are praying.  Do NOT give this Rosary away to anyone.  If someone should ask for your Rosary, say instead; " I will say a Rosary for you." Two young girls sang a song and sang again at the 10th Station.

We then continued with our prayers and, at the 8th Station, Dory again reminded us that Our Blessed Mother will bless our Rosaries at the 10th Station.  Dory gave a Rosary to those who did not have one and wants us to promise that we will use this Rosary---DON'T  IGNORE  what Our Blessed Mother is asking of us. USE  this Rosary as our WEAPON against the devil. Do not give it away and ACCEPT the GRACES that She is giving to us.

At the 10thStation, after the usual prayers and songs, everyone sang "Happy Birthday" to Our Blessed Mother.  Dory was looking around --smiling at all the people who were present around her.  After the apparition, she shared this with us.  Once again she says that she cannot express how she feels.  Since last night, at the Blessed Sacrament and at home, she has been shedding tears.  Our Blessed Mother knows that these tears are the same as Hers --Tears of Joy.  Today, Our Blessed Mother is very happy and thankful with all that we are doing.  Many people said the special prayers that She requested at midnight and some people were here all night praying at the farm.  We cannot count the Blessings that we received.  Dory says that this is proof of what Our Blessed Mother said would happen in the year 2000.  She knows that Dory was sad because many people lost their FAITH because nothing happened.  Our Blessed Mother said;

"Don't worry, continue to pray---this will bring them back."

Dory knows that this is TRUE---she is happy and thankful today as there are lots of people who are listening to the calling and giving their souls to Our Lord and Our Blessed Mother.  Today Our Blessed Mother appeared as "Our Lady of Grace" with the only difference being that She was wearing a beautiful Golden Crown.

Dory shares that she was at the Blessed Sacrament last night before going home to say her midnight prayers.  She prayed for the sick people and then went home at 10:30 where she continued to pray at home.  After the 20:00 midnight prayers, she expected to see Our Blessed Mother but She did not come.  She said more prayers---saying the Chaplet three more times and She still did not come.  Then, at 12:35, Our Blessed Mother appeared to Dory---smiling.  She appeared the same as now (at the 10th Station)--like on the Miraculous Medal with Her hands outstretched and with a Golden Crown on Her head.  This is the first time that Our Blessed Mother appeared to Dory this way.  Dory had a bag of Miraculous Medals beside her that she was planning on giving to the people in Marmora on Sept. 8th.  Our Blessed Mother asked her to open the bag and the "RAYS" of light from Her hands went into the bag blessing these medals.  She then asked Dory to give these medals to all the people.  These medals are very special and we are asked to wear it at all times along with the Scapular.

Dory feels sad that, for many years, she has been giving the Scapular to so many people and there are many who do not wear it.  They don't know the value of it.  Which is better---wearing a gold necklace or the Scapular?  Don't be ashamed or embarrassed to wear the Scapular as we are proving to the devil that we belong to Our Blessed Mother and this is our weapon against him.  Promise Our Blessed Mother that we will treasure the Scapular and the Miraculous Medal as it is worth more than a million in gold.  Please follow what Our Blessed Mother is asking of us and we will get what She promised a long time ago.  Be happy and proud to wear them and to say the Rosary.  Remember that material things are only temporary.  Make the Rosary, the Scapular and the Miraculous Medal like our gold from now on and bring them with you until the end.

Dory shares an experience that she had a week ago at the Blessed Sacrament.  She finds this difficult to explain--as Our Blessed Mother let her see how Jesus saved us and wants her to tell the whole world what she saw.  Our Blessed Mother said to her;

"See how My Son saved the whole world--God died and suffered for us--He saved souls."

Continue what we are doing--PRAY  HARD.  Jesus wants us to go to Heaven.  BELIEVE that this is TRUE.

Always love one another and pray for each other.  Go to Mass every Sunday and go to Confession.  Pray hard and don't get tired.  Like the Mass that NEVER changes--we must never change what we are doing.

Our Blessed Mother is thanking us for all that we are doing and says;

"Don't be disappointed--remember that My Son can do a miracle every minute."

Dory asks us to please believe this because she KNOWS that it is TRUE.  She is always praying for the sick and she prays to Our Lord saying that some people still blame her and judge her because nothing happened in the year 2000 and some people feel that the prayers said for the sick were not answered because their loved ones did not get cured.

Our Lord answered her by saying;

"Nobody can judge you--only I can judge you."

Dory is begging us to give our hearts to Our Lord and Our Blessed Mother and says that people are getting more than they ask for.  She emphasizes that it is MOST  IMPORTANT to pray for the souls of the sick people--don't forget that the physical is only temporary BUT the soul has NO end.

Don't waste this time.  She says;  "You will see--even on earth--you are in Heaven."

Dory end by saying;  "God Bless you All."

At the 14th Station Dory handed out the Blessed Miraculous Medals to the people.

2001 October 6th, First Saturday, Farm

It was a cool, damp day as we began the Stations of the Cross. At the second Station, it started to rain and Dory was seen to be looking around as she raised her Rosary towards the sky. It was interesting as we saw the clouds breaking and the sun shining through although the rain continued. There were many people present here today and we were blessed as we did not experience much rain as we proceeded throughout the Stations. At the 10th Station, during the apparition, Dory seemed to be emotional. A nice Priest blessed everyone and then Dory shared this with us.

She asks us to please excuse her tears and says that Our Blessed Mother is once again very, very happy with all our prayers and sacrifices. She also emphasizes that Our Blessed Mother appeared for the first time like on the “Miraculous Medal” on Her birthday (Sept. 8th ) and is begging us to honor and wear the Scapular and the Miraculous Medal as a sign to show that we belong to Her.

Dory also shares that, three years ago in the Blessed Sacrament at St. Patrick’s Church, she saw a vision of a big, big building collapsing in a big city and was aware that this was the work of men. Our Blessed Mother did not allow her to spread this vision and mentioned it to only a few people to prove that she was not making it up. On Sept. 11th, when she saw what happened in New York City, for the whole day, she could not believe what was happening. It was like a movie—like a dream and she felt the same throughout the day and night. The next day (Sept.12th ) she went to Mass at 7:00a.m. and prayed to Jesus saying;

“Lord, is this now the time–the same as my vision?”

Dory continued to pray for awhile and, after a few minutes, she heard a voice and she knew that this was the voice of Jesus. Jesus said;

“I am the Way, the Truth and the Life. From the beginning until the end I am the same. Be ready at all times. BELIEVE—continue and FOLLOW what My Mother is telling you.”

This is a message to ALL and Dory hopes that we BELIEVE and FOLLOW what Our Blessed Mother is saying. She is always encouraging us to PRAY HARD, do not get tired and ALWAYS be ready. Believe what She is saying–it’s happening–this is only the beginning.

Many people are calling her and asking what to do. They are scared and wonder if they should move from New York. Dory says that, if we are close to Our Lord and Our Blessed Mother, there is no need to be scared. She shares that she is not afraid of anything on this earth–she is only scared of going to hell. Dory emphasizes that this is not a joke. Don’t worry about preparing and saving food–worry more about preparing and saving our souls and desire to go to Heaven to be with Our Lord and Our Blessed Mother. She reminds us that the people who were in the building on Sept.11th  prepared their lunch for themselves but were unable to eat.

Dory shares that on October 1st, she was in Church praying to Our Lord saying;

“I don’t know if my prayers are helping the world.”

She continued to pray knowing that Our Lord and Our Blessed Mother were present even though she could not hear Them. Like a child, she begged Them to show her if the prayers that are being said are helping the world.

Our Lord answered her by showing her “His hands full of brilliant rays”. He spoke to her saying;

“For those people who follow My footsteps–this is the way it will be for them.”

Dory responded by saying; “My Lord and My God, forgive us and save us.”

Dory experienced seeing people in hell looking up at Jesus–they were calling and begging but could not reach these “bright rays in His hands”.

She emphasizes to us again that there is a Heaven and there is a hell. Why are we  praying for money or wealth? These things are only material —we should pray for our souls. The time here on earth is the only time that we have to pray as there is no more chance in hell. This is a lesson for us–a sign for us to PRAY HARD. Give our hearts to Our Lord and Our Blessed Mother until the end.

Our Blessed Mother loves us very much and is asking us to prepare. Dory says that this is very important what Our Blessed Mother wants us to do. On December 8th (Feast of the Immaculate Conception) we are asked to each bring “THREE CANDLES” with us here to this special place. It is up to us if we want to follow this request. Our Blessed Mother will let us know the “REASON” for this request. Dory BELIEVES that the three candles are very important and reminds us that Jesus wants us to FOLLOW what His Mother is asking of us. She says that if we only knew the value of our prayers—without our prayers, things could be so much worse. It is TRUE–pray hard and don’t get tired. Only ONE ROSARY a day can save our soul—save the world. Dory was emotional as she says that this is not much to ask and we will see that it is TRUE. We must try our best to follow Our Blessed Mother. Nobody can help us–only our prayers.

It is very, very important to SPREAD this message to the whole world. Our Blessed Mother is giving us lots of time -- it’s not too late, don’t waste this chance. FOLLOW what She is asking of us.

Dory again thanks everyone from her heart and ends by saying;

“God Bless You All.”

We are also asked to support this special place if we can -- even if it is only one dollar.

2001 October 13th, Saturday, Farm

It was a warm, beautiful day as we started the Stations of the Cross.  At the 10th Station, after the apparition, Dory shared this with us.

Once again, she thanks everyone for being here and says that Our Blessed Mother is very happy and thankful with our prayers and sacrifices on this special day.  She is proving to us that Fatima, Lourdes and Marmora are the SAME and Dory shows us an example of this.  At Lourdes, Bernadette had a White Rosary with a Gold Crucifix.  At Fatima, Our Blessed Mother appeared holding a Rosary and requested that we pray the Rosary for sinners and for the world.  In Marmora, it is the same.  The first time (August, 1992 in Marmora) Dory experienced seeing a “White Rosary” in the sun but did not see Our Blessed Mother.  The second time (a few days later in Marmora) Dory experienced seeing Our Blessed Mother with a “White Rosary” in Her hand.  She shows that, in this way, Lourdes, Fatima and Marmora are the same.  The meaning of this is to show that we are blessed to have this place.  What is happening in this place is REAL and TRUE.

Many people are asking Dory about the THREE CANDLES and what to do on December 8th Feast of Immaculate Conception.  Some people are asking if they can bring candles for others if they are unable to come.  Dory prayed hard and begged Our Blessed Mother what she should say to the people.

Our Blessed Mother knows the reason why some people cannot come and She wants us to know that these candles are VERY IMPORTANT.  Please BELIEVE this and spread this message even if we cannot come.  Our Blessed Mother gives us an example that if we believe what happened in New York then we believe what She is asking us to do.  Dory wants to make it clear to ALL what Our Blessed Mother is asking of us.

Come to Marmora on December 8th Feast of the Immaculate Conception and bring THREE CANDLES (three for each family).

Do NOT light these candles.  If we cannot come here, then wherever we are PREPARE three candles by placing them on your altar on this day (December 8th).

Do NOT light them.  PRAY HARD from your heart.

Our Blessed Mother will tell us the REASON for these candles on December 8th.

It is a BIG, BIG help.  Continue to pray for the world; pray for the people who are not with Jesus. Do not get tired.

Dory is asking us to BELIEVE what she is telling us. It is not a joke.

She ends by saying; “God Bless You All.”

2001 November 3rd, First Saturday, Farm

It was a pleasant day as we did the Stations of the Cross saying the Rosary as we walked.  Before reaching the 10th Station, Dory shared this with us.  She says that there are many people asking for prayers and that many complain because she cannot pray for them individually at the 10th Station.  Dory shares that she offers ALL of us and gives us to Our Blessed Mother at the 10th Station and reminds us to open our hearts tell Our Blessed Mother what we want as She is there listening to us and hears each one of us.  After the apparition, at the 10th Station, Dory shared this with us.  Our Blessed Mother is very happy and thankful and is begging us to continue what we are doing.  She wants to make it CLEAR to all what we need to do regarding the candles on December 8th.  Bring THREE CANDLES (any kind, any size, blessed or unblessed) for EACH family (NOT three for each person).

We CANNOT bring candles for others.

If we are not able to come to Marmora on Dec. 8th then put these three candles on your altar at home and OFFER these candles and PRAY for the intentions of Our Blessed Mother.

DO NOT LIGHT these candles.

Pray hard, say the Rosary; there is no specific time for these prayers as long as we pray on that day (Dec.8th).

Dory emphasizes that this is a VERY IMPORTANT message and is asking us to FOLLOW what Our Blessed Mother is asking of us.  Our Blessed Mother will explain the reason for these candles on December 8th.

Dory also shares with us something special that happened to her last night (Nov. 2nd) at her home.  On Fridays, she usually goes to Mass, prays for the sick and then visits the Blessed Sacrament and then continues to pray in front of her altar when she comes home.  Our Lord and Our Blessed Mother know what is in her heart and what is bothering her and know when she needs to be comforted.  Not everyone believes what is happening and what is going on.  She says that some people are asking  why Sr. Lucia does not receive any more messages from Our Blessed Mother.  Dory asked about this and Our Blessed Mother appeared to her but did not speak She only looked at her and SMILED.  Dory felt such deep LOVE and COMFORT from this SMILE and this was good enough for her.  She finished her prayers thinking of this SMILE and then went to bed.

In her sleep, she had a dream about Sr. Lucia.  This was the first time that this happened and this dream was real and true.  She saw Sr. Lucia in the convent, lying on her bed, looking old and weak.  She managed to slightly raise her upper body to look at her and Dory could tell that Sr. Lucia was a very Holy Lady as she spoke to Dory saying;

“Do not worry about what the people are thinking even me in the convent they are against me and don’t believe me.  The people who are near to you are blessed; they are lucky because they know what to do.  Do not put yourself down; do not think that you are only a sinner we are ALL sinners.  Our Lord and Our Blessed Mother know how much I want to follow Them but I cannot do what you are doing; I cannot show to the world you can tell the world.  Pray hard that people will believe what you are telling them.  I feel sorry for the people who do not believe.  You are blessed pray for the people around you.”

Dory woke up at 3:00 a.m. making the Sign of the Cross.  She felt very happy as the dream was very clear.  It is TRUE and REAL what she saw and wants us to believe.  This is our chance we must not waste this time concentrate on our souls not material things; think only of going to Heaven.  Dory is able to do what Sr. Lucia cannot do and we are asked to BELIEVE what Our Blessed Mother and Sr. Lucia are saying.  We must try our best to FOLLOW what Our Blessed Mother is telling us.  Pray hard, sacrifice and believe in what I (Dory) am telling you and what Our Blessed Mother wants us to do.

Dory ends by saying; “I love you all and God Bless You”.

2001 December 1st, First Saturday, Farm

It was a cloudy, pleasant day as we started the Stations of the Cross and, even though we were a smaller group, we felt that the day was special.  During the apparition, it was obvious to see that Dory was emotional by her expressions and her tears.  Afterwards, she shared this with us.

Even though we are only a few, she shared that Our Lord and Our Blessed Mother are very happy with our prayers and sacrifices.  Dory emphasizes how very, very important it is for us to follow what Our Blessed Mother is asking of us on December 8th and to please take what She is saying seriously.  Our Blessed Mother is warning Dory that She will explain the meaning of these candles on December 8th and She is emphasizing to us NOT to be confused about what we are asked to do.  Dory says:

“If any one of you doubt what I am saying, think about how many years that I have been doing this.”

She again emphasizes to us how important it is to come here on December 8th as this is serious.  During the sharing, Dory was seen to be crying and we all could sense the seriousness of her emotion.  She is begging us to pray hard for her as many people are trying to confuse and distract her and she is praying hard asking for strong FAITH.  Please BELIEVE what Our Blessed Mother wants us to do on December 8th.  If we believe that there is a Heaven, then believe that this is serious.  Remember that this is not a joke if we believe what happened in New York take seriously what Our Blessed Mother is asking of us.

Dory shares; “The tears that I shed are not for me not for myself.  I feel bad for the people who do not listen.  I feel very sad for those who do not believe and especially for those who are laughing and making fun of what is being asked of us.”

She asks us to pray for those who do not believe and remember that Our Blessed Mother emphasizes to us that material things are not important and we must do what we can to go to Heaven.  Do not waste this time, continue what we are doing and follow what Our Lord and Our Blessed Mother are asking of us.  Don’t forget any second something can happen.  It is not a joke it is TRUE and it is because that Our Lord and Our Blessed Mother love us very much that we are asked to come here (Marmora) on December 8th and by doing this, we are thinking of our own salvation.

Dory ends by saying; “I Love You and God Bless You All.”

What we are asked to do on December 8th;

Come to Marmora on December 8th, Feast of the Immaculate Conception.
Bring THREE CANDLES (blessed or unblessed, any size, and kind) for EACH FAMILY.
We CANNOT BRING candles for anyone else, only our own family.  If it is not possible to come here (Marmora) then place THREE CANDLES on your altar at home and offer them for the intentions of Our Blessed Mother DO NOT LIGHT THEM.

Sometime during the day, say these prayers in front of your altar;

THE ROSARY
THE DIVINE MERCY CHAPLET
THE CHAPLET OF THE FIVE SACRED WOUNDS

Our Blessed Mother will tell us the meaning of these candles on December 8th.

2001 December 8th, Feast of Immaculate Conception, Farm

It was an astonishing site to see so many thousands of people here today in response to Our Blessed Mother’s request to come and bring THREE CANDLES.  Before beginning the Stations, Dory shared this with us.

She says that Our Blessed Mother is very, very happy with ALL who responded to the message and by coming here today.  We are reminded that we should not be disappointed if we don’t see or feel anything but the importance of having STRONG FAITH is emphasized open our hearts and BELIEVE that Our Blessed Mother is here with us.  She thanks us ALL for our prayers and sacrifices and wants us to have FAITH and feel Her Love as She loves us very much.  She will tell us the reason why She asked us to come here.  Overall, open our hearts, this is the time; do not look for signs.  Remember New York; there was no sign, no warning.  Our Lord and Our Blessed Mother hope that we all will listen.  Even if we don’t see Our Blessed Mother, BELIEVE that She is with us here today and until the end.

Dory was praying for a few minutes and then asked that we continue the Stations on our own and meet her at the 10th Station.  She then proceeded to walk the Stations on her knees.  It was amazing to see how cooperative such a large crowd was as we continued with the Stations saying the Rosary as we walked.

We reached the 10th Station and met Dory there.  There were three nice Priests there who were also prepared by holding three candles.  Each Priest individually blessed Dory before the apparition.  Also, two young girls (Jennifer & Christina) as well as Mitch sang some beautiful songs.

During the apparition, Dory was heard to say;

“My God Jesus, I Love You; Jesus, I Love You; Jesus, I Love You.”

After the apparition, Dory shared this with us.

She shares that Our Blessed Mother is very, very happy and wants to explain why she did the Stations by herself on her knees.  Before beginning the Stations, Dory says that she knows that people come here because they know that Our Blessed Mother is here.  Some are looking and wondering and ask if She is really here.  Dory prayed hard and asked what to do because she knows that these people depend on her for many answers.  As we began the Rosary, Our Lord spoke to her and said;

“Prove to the people how much you love them:  do the Stations on your knees.”

She was embarrassed thinking that people might think that she was showing off.  Our Lord then said to her;

“When I saved the world, I didn’t feel embarrassment, fear or pain.”

When Dory heard this voice, she knew that this was TRUE; there were NO complaints from Jesus.  What is asked of her is nothing compared to what He did for us.  She showed no fear, no embarrassment and no pain as she followed this request coming from Our Lord, Jesus.

This explains why she did the Stations in this way.

Dory also wants to share to everyone the REASON for the THREE CANDLES that we brought here today.  The THREE CANDLES symbolize the THREE PERSONS in the Holy Family JESUS, MARY and JOSEPH.  The example of the Holy Family is to encourage us to be holy like Them in preparation for what will happen.  Our Blessed Mother allowed Dory to share a vision that she had two weeks ago while she was praying at home AND also the same vision again when she visited the Blessed Sacrament in Saint Maximilian Kolbe Church.

She says that what happened in New York is nothing compared to what she saw in this vision.  We are reminded about what happened with Noah:  it is the same.  We must prepare ourselves and sacrifice by using the CANDLES in this way;

On Christmas Eve at 0:00 midnight AND on New Year’s Eve at 0:00 midnight say these prayers;

Light your THREE candles,
PRAY THE ROSARY,
THE CHAPLET OF DIVINE MERCY,
THE CHAPLET OF THE FIVE SACRED WOUNDS OF JESUS (see sharing of 2001, January 6th).
Put out the candles after these prayers.

Don’t laugh at what we are asked to do; if we BELIEVE, we must prepare ourselves.  Material things are nothing anymore everything will be gone.  Don’t get tired of waiting; this will happen soon, believe me (Dory), as this is coming from Our Blessed Mother.  Our Blessed Mother says;

“If everyone is with My Son, Jesus and Me, there is no need to be afraid.”

She wants us to be ready at any time and please take this serious; don’t make fun.  Something can happen at any time, in a second.  This is no joke, no mistake, it is from Our Blessed Mother.

We are also asked to hang an image (picture) of the “TWIN HEARTS” at the (front) door of our home.  Offer our family to Our Lord and Our Blessed Mother and when we are tempted or confused say;
“Jesus, I Love You; Jesus, I Love You; Jesus, I Love You.”

Our Blessed Mother knows that many of our children are lost, confused and don’t go to Church.  Pray for them.  This is the REASON for the candles:  praying for a Holy Family.  If your candles should burn down, get another candle and light it up from one of the three first candles already lighted and go on doing this always in the future.  This way the replacement candles will continuously be blessed.

Always remember to love one another; go to Mass every Sunday; go to confession; pray hard and make sacrifices.  We can help the world through our prayers.  Dory shares that she can tell just by the SMILE from Our Blessed Mother that She is very, very happy with what we are doing and says that, because of prayer, things are being delayed.

Dory says that she hopes that everyone is happy because we were also blessed by the Priests who were present here today.

She also shares that Our Blessed Mother is requesting a sincere DAY of PRAYER from the people of the United States for the intentions of FAMILY UNITY and WORLD PEACE.

Dory ends by saying; “I Love You and God Bless You All.”

 NOTICE:  People can use these three candles for prayers after New Year's Day because the Virgin will grant special blessing graces in order to help our families and the whole world when we pray before these lighted candles reciting the prayers already mentioned above.

THE CHAPLET OF DIVINE MERCY

Our Father…,
Hail Mary…,
I believe in God…

On the large bead before each decade:
"Eternal Father, I offer You the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your dearly beloved Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world".

On the 10 small beads of each decade:
"For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.

After 5 decades the "thrice-Holy" Hymn:
"Holy God, Holy Mighty one, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world"(Three times).


THE CHAPLET OF THE FIVE SACRED WOUNDS OF JESUS

Our Blessed Mother taught Dory to say the chaplet of the five Sacred Wounds of Jesus as follows:

Do the sign of the cross;  say the Apostles’ Creed…,

Our Father…,
Hail Mary…, Hail Mary…, Hail Mary…,
Glory be to the Father, Glory be to the Son, Glory to the Holy Spirit…
« Lord Jesus, through Your most Precious Blood flowing out from Your Five Sacred Wounds, cover us and wash away our sins. »

Our Father…,
Hail Mary…, Hail Mary…, Hail Mary…,
Glory be to the Father, Glory be to the Son, Glory to the Holy Spirit…
« Lord Jesus, through Your most Precious Blood flowing out from Your Five Sacred Wounds, cover us and wash away our sins. »

Our Father…,
Hail Mary…, Hail Mary…, Hail Mary…,
Glory be to the Father, Glory be to the Son, Glory to the Holy Spirit…
« Lord Jesus, through Your most Precious Blood flowing out from Your Five Sacred Wounds, cover us and wash away our sins. »

Our Father…,
Hail Mary…, Hail Mary…, Hail Mary…,
Glory be to the Father, Glory be to the Son, Glory to the Holy Spirit…
« Lord Jesus, through Your most Precious Blood flowing out from Your Five Sacred Wounds, cover us and wash away our sins. »

Our Father…,
Hail Mary…, Hail Mary…, Hail Mary…,
Glory be to the Father, Glory be to the Son, Glory to the Holy Spirit…
« Lord Jesus, through Your most Precious Blood flowing out from Your Five Sacred Wounds, cover us and wash away our sins. »

"Most Sacred Heart of Jesus and Immaculate Heart of Mother Mary, hold us and keep us in Your Hearts forever.  Amen."

Sharings 2002

2002 January 5th, First Saturday, Farm

We all enjoyed a nice wintery day as we did the Stations of the Cross saying the Rosary as we walked through the snow.  At the 10th Station, during the apparition, Dory was emotional, but happy, as she turned her head slowly from side to side as if looking at someone or something around her.  She then concentrated on the actual apparition site.  Afterwards, she shared this with us.

Dory wishes all of us a very Happy New Year and says that she finds it very difficult to explain and describe what Our Blessed Mother allowed her to see on Christmas Eve and how beautiful it was.  First of all, she wants us to know that Our Blessed Mother is very, very happy with what we did by following Her request in saying the prayers on Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve and says that, if everyone followed this request, there would be no more war and no more sorrow.  It would be the same everywhere.

Dory shares that she did a Novena and started her prayers at midnight on Christmas Eve with her Three Candles lit saying the whole Rosary, the Divine Mercy Chaplet and was in the middle of saying the Chaplet of the Five Sacred Wounds.  She was a little surprised because she did not see Our Blessed Mother or even feel Her presence.  Dory thought that this was a test for her and then, in the middle of saying the Chaplet of the Five Sacred Wounds, Our Blessed Mother appeared.  She was dressed all in GOLD and She looked so beautiful.  Dory was very happy and says that Our Blessed Mother knows what is in her heart and how she feels.  She says that she would be happy even if She did not come and wants to encourage us all to feel the same.  Don't be sad or disappointed if we don't see or feel Her presence - have FAITH and BELIEVE that She is always with us.

Dory was very, very happy as Our Blessed Mother smiled at her and allowed her to see Heaven which was so beautiful.  She was reminded that, three years ago, when we went to Divine Mercy Shrine in Stockbridge, Massachusetts, the weather was very bad but we went anyway.  Our Lord was very happy that we continued to go despite the weather.  At the Shrine, Our Lord allowed Dory to see Heaven and she saw that there were many empty rooms there.  On Christmas Eve, when she saw Heaven again, she saw that some of the empty rooms before are now being filled.  Many of these souls were in Purgatory for a long time.  We are reminded that each one of us has a room in Heaven and the most important thing for us is to go to Heaven.  The people who are there are lucky and they are waiting for us if we continue to do what we are doing.  Don't worry -BELIEVE in what we are doing.  Why would we come here (Marmora) if we don't believe?  It would be nice to stay home where we are comfortable.  Remember that this place is Holy and Dory knows that we believe that there is a Heaven.  She shares to ALL the families who prayed and followed what Our Blessed Mother requested - Our Blessed Mother says;

"Do not worry, offer all your sufferings and your pain to Me - I want you to be a Holy Family."

Dory reminds us not to ignore this.  Think of what happened to Noah.  He found it very difficult to follow what God asked of him and did not understand but he followed even though people were laughing and making fun of him.  It is the same as now - just follow what Our Lord and Our Blessed Mother are asking of us.  This is the MEANING of the THREE CANDLES and we will pray for others.  Dory says that she feels sorry for those who knew about the message and chose to ignore it.  Think about what happened in New York - this is only the beginning.  Remember from previous messages that Our Blessed Mother says;

"I love All My Children in the world."

We should be thankful and continue to do what She is asking of us and PRAY for PEACE.  This is the time to prepare to get our own room in Heaven.  Be simple - even only a SMALL PRAYER is very important.  Always LOVE one another and pray for each other.

Dory ends by saying;  "I Love You and God Bless You All."

2002 March 2nd, First Saturday, Farm

It was a beautiful day as we gathered to do the Stations of the Cross saying the Rosary as we walked.  Dory seemed emotional but quiet at the 10th Station during the apparition.

Afterwards, Dory shared this with us.  She hopes that we do not get tired of hearing how happy it makes Our Blessed Mother when we come to this Holy place to pray and She does not want us to get tired of coming here.  Dory also thanks us for the support and help that we give to her.  She says that, without this support from Our Lord, Our Blessed Mother and from us she cannot do anything.

Sometimes she asks Our Blessed Mother if this happiness that she feels (by giving to the poor) is only temporary and says that if this happiness is only temporary, then please take it away.  If suffering is forever –by helping souls and doing what Jesus wants– then this is what I (Dory) want to do.  Remember that our life here is only temporary and always, always remember what Our Lord, Jesus did for us.  What He did for us is NOT temporary and is a credit to our souls.

Padre Pio is a big example in our generation.  We know that he was only a human being and we should try to do like him -even only a small thing.  Even if we trials in our life –do NOT give up -this life is only temporary and our goal is to reach Heaven which is forever.  This is the time to prepare our soul and Dory shares that Jesus gave her the Chaplet of the Five Sacred Wounds to share with us.  The Lord saved us and says that this Prayer (Chaplet) is very powerful.  It come from Jesus showing us that He saved us through His Body and His Life before He died.  Jesus says;

“From the beginning until the end, I am the same –only people change.  My Word never changes.”

If we remember that Jesus is always the same –then we will not worry and we will offer ALL our sufferings to Him.  He showed His LOVE by suffering for us.

Do more; Pray Hard; Forget temporary things.  Time is short –something can happen any second —always be prepared.  Jesus says;

“Do not worry –as long as you are with Me –then there is nothing to worry about.  Forget material things –you cannot reach Heaven through material things.  FOLLOW MY WORD and you will be saved.”

Dory ends by saying; God Bless You All.”

2002 April 6th, First Saturday, Farm

The day was sunny and pleasant as we did the Stations of the Cross saying our prayers as we walked along the path.  At the 10th Station, the atmosphere was quiet during the apparition.  Afterwards, Dory shared this with us.

She wished to all a «Happy Easter» and once again thanks everyone, especially the newcomers and those from far away (Windsor and New Jersey) for their support and prayers through their presence here today.  By coming here, we make Our Lord and Our Blessed Mother very happy and this proves that Our Blessed Mother wants us to continue to pray the Rosary forever and wants us to know how much She loves us and blessed all the Rosaries of those who came here for the first time.

Our Blessed Mother allows Dory to share that there are some people who have doubts about this place and do not 100% believe that this place is REAL.  If this is so, then why come here –why come to pray?  Dory encourages these people to ask Our Blessed Mother to help make them BELIEVE that this place is REAL.

She shares an experience that she had when she was in the Philippines saying that she visited the small town that she grew up in.  When she was growing up in this town, the population was 99% Catholic and is sad to say that now there are only a few —because many have changed their religion and she prays hard to Our Blessed Mother as this makes her very sad.  Our Blessed Mother answers her by saying that the world is getting tired and fed up because they don’t see any results from the 3rd Secret of Fatima and some think that it is a joke.

Dory encourages us NOT to give up –don’t get tired and fed up because the 3rd Secret has not happened.  She has been coming here since 1992 and says that this is not a long time –please continue what we are doing.  Many people are asking about more messages from Our Blessed Mother and She responds by saying;

«I have given you all that you have to do —are you following the messages that I have already given to you

Again, Dory asks us to follow the messages already given to us by Our Blessed Mother.  Don’t ask for any more and don’t get tired.  She says that she cries because she knows how Our Blessed Mother feels –she is sharing Her tears.  She says that she is nothing and is also a sinner and is begging us to please BELIEVE in the Word of God.  This world is only temporary –don’t worry –have STRONG FAITH and there is nothing to worry about.  We all have our problems –leave ALL to Our Lord and Our Blessed Mother –They will take care of us.

Please continue what we are doing.  Always love one another and pray hard.  Dory shares that the world is getting worse and asks Our Blessed Mother;

«Am I helping souls and the world or is what I am doing useless

Our Blessed Mother answers her by saying;

«You are helping Me and My Son, Jesus.  I know what you are feeling.  I am doing ALL that I can to change the world BUT they are following their own will.  Whoever follows what I ask –I will take care of them

Dory begs us to follow the Word of God and please continue what we are doing.  She ends by saying; "God Bless You All."

2002 May 4th, First Saturday, Farm

Today was a beautiful sunny day as we began the Stations of the Cross.  Before beginning the Stations, Dory shared this with us.

She says that, in the parking lot, many people are asking for prayers and before she could finish praying for one person another one came and she asks Our Blessed Mother;

«There are too many--how can I do this

Our Blessed Mother knows what is in Dory’s heart and appeared to her saying;

«There is nothing to worry about -as long as the people know that you are praying for them- it is through your prayers that I am here for everyone who is asking prayer from you

Dory hopes that people understand and this proves that Our Blessed Mother is with us and that the prayers are for ALL and She wants us to give and offer ALL our problems and our pain, from our hearts, to Our Lord and Our Blessed Mother.

We then continued with the Stations and our prayers and reached the 10th Station.  It was obvious to everyone that Dory was very weak as she approached the 10th Station and needed support from a couple of people in order to stand or kneel.  She continued to experience this for approximately 10 minutes, being emotional -crying at times, until the apparition.  After the apparition, she seemed to be stronger and more herself and shared this with us.

Before sharing, she received a Blessing from two wonderful Priests who were present.  She says that she doesn’t know how to start, saying; «I don’t know what happened to me  She felt very, very weak with no strength at all and this is the first time that this has happened to her in the almost 10 years that she has been coming here.  She thought that she was not going to make it and said to Our Lord;

«I will accept it -I will continue and not give up

Then her strength returned and Our Blessed Mother appeared to her.  Dory says that she did not know what happened and felt embarrassed because she did not want to bring attention to herself.  She shares that Our Blessed Mother was crying and said;

«My Son, Jesus allowed you to feel that feeling of weakness -that is the SAME as the world.  My Son, Jesus used you to show the people how WEAK the world is at this time

Our Blessed Mother is begging us to put ourselves in Her Heart.  This is the LAST CHANCE.  You know what is happening is NOT a joke and Our Blessed Mother feels sad for the world.  There are many people who don’t believe in Heaven, Hell and Purgatory.  Dory says that she doesn’t know what to say anymore -if we only knew how much Our Blessed Mother is BEGGING us NOT to give up.  We are ALL only temporary and what we do here once a month is a BIG HELP to Her -so why not come.

Our Blessed Mother says that the time has come to now «save ourselves -save our own souls and not the world  There are lots of rooms waiting for us and many are empty -please BELIEVE what Our Blessed Mother is telling us.  There are only TWO CHOICES that are permanent -HEAVEN and HELL, everything else is only temporary.  Which one do we want -of course HEAVEN.  We must not say that we will TRY to do it -we HAVE to do it- to get a room in Heaven.  It is only a small thing;

Go to Church; go to Confession; say the Rosary everyday and always LOVE one another.  This is not hard to do.

Dory is begging us -this is TRUE (during this time Dory is emotional and crying).  Time is short.

Our Blessed Mother says;  « I love you ALL and I want you to be with Me and My Son, Jesus in Heaven. I am doing everything for you

She is begging us to bring PEACE and LOVE to our families.  We are all WEAK and emphasizes that she is also weak as a human being BUT only wants to FOLLOW Our Lord and Our Blessed Mother.  She is very emphatic when she says;

«I WILL do it -not TRY to do it

If we do what Our Blessed Mother is asking of us, we will get a room in Heaven.  She is asking us to have the Rosary and Blessed Articles in our homes.  When we come here (Marmora) -Our Blessed Mother is Blessing us.  She is ALWAYS blessing us because She loves us very much.  Dory says that she leaves it ALL to Our Blessed Mother and says;

«Who am I and how can I explain what I am doing? I am REPEATING what Our Blessed Mother said "SAVE YOUR OWN SOULS!"»

Dory is thankful to all and says that Our Blessed Mother is very happy with what we are doing.  We are reminded to do little sacrifices and FOLLOW HER MESSAGES.  Pray for the Priests -we need them.  Even if we don’t see much good in the world -DON’T GIVE UP and BE STRONG.  Pray for our enemies and for the people that are lost.

Dory ends by saying; «God Bless You All

2002 June 1st, First Saturday, Farm

Today seemed special with the sun shining and a nice breeze blowing as we said our prayers walking along the Stations of the Cross.  There was also more singing (at the request of Dory) before and during the Stations with the accompaniment of music which added a special touch to the songs.  We were fortunate also that there were no insects or bugs which are normally so prominent at this time of year.  All went quietly and smoothly as the large crowd of people joined in the prayers and singing between and at each Station.

We reached the 10th Station, sang, said our prayers and eagerly awaited the presence of Our Blessed Mother.  During the apparition Dory seemed happy as she obviously tried to wipe away her «tears of joy».  Many times, Dory has shared with us that, when she sees Our Blessed Mother, she cries because she is so happy.  Most of us could not help but notice how strong the wind was at this time and there was a «gentle but howling» sound through the trees.  There seemed to be no doubt that Our Blessed Mother was present.  Afterwards, Dory shared this with us.

She thanks all of us for being here and for our prayers and joyfully asks;

«Are you happy

A very loud «YES» was heard in the air in response to her question.  She shares that Our Blessed Mother is also very, very happy and does not want tears thus asking Dory to wipe away her tears during the apparition.  She wants Dory to share with us what happened to her on May 13th in the Church.  During her prayers, Our Blessed Mother appeared to Dory and allowed her to see the Three Children at Fatima with 1000's of people present around them.  We are reminded of how many years ago that this happened -in 1917.  The Three Children got messages and, at that time, 1000's of people were present but did NOT see or feel a miracle.  It is the same as today as so many people are present but do not see or feel a miracle.  Dory emphasizes to us that, what is in the message of Fatima is HAPPENING NOW.

Dory shares that, to be honest, she sometimes feels down but Our Blessed Mother helps her by making her feel strong.  Our Blessed Mother says;

«Do not worry

She sees each one of us and knows what we need.  Have STRONG FAITH –the same STRONG FAITH that many had in 1917.

Dory gives an example that, since 1992 –the almost 10 years that she has been coming here– it seems like only yesterday and shows that time is very short.  It is the same as in 1917 –we are now living the message of that time and this also shows how short the time is.  We are encouraged to NOT GIVE UP and DON’T GET TIRED.

We are also reminded of the sharing of the 1st Saturday in May –that NOW is the time to SAVE OUR OWN SOULS.  Dory shares that sometimes she has to give an example because many people don’t know how to save their own souls.  She emphasizes that we must follow the messages of Our Blessed Mother in order to save our souls and also to help others.

Dory shares that today is so beautiful as Our Blessed Mother is very happy and SMILING saying;

«I want My Children to be with Me always.  Give your hearts and your souls to Me

Share with each other and help each other.  Remember what Our Lord, Jesus did –He shared His Life for us.  What Our Blessed Mother is asking of us is only small compared to what Our Lord, Jesus did for us.  We have to make sure that we do not waste this PRECIOUS TIME.  Our Blessed Mother says;

«Do not worry –if you share your time with Me– I will provide

This is the time to come to THEIR HEARTS showing that we are not ignoring Them.  Do NOT worry about material things.  Bring ALL to Our Lord, Jesus and Our Blessed Mother.

BELIEVE        BELIEVE        BELIEVE

They are begging all of us –«COME»– They are waiting for us.  They need us and want each one of us to get a room in Heaven.  Again, we are reminded that we are asked to do only a small thing.

Always LOVE one another.  Share with others, even if it is only a small piece of bread.  Our Blessed Mother tells us not to worry –She will provide whatever we ask and need and says;

«All I ask from you is your FAITH –do all you can now– do more sacrifice

Dory shares what she did last Saturday (May 25th).  Our Blessed Mother asked her to help Padre Pio by walking on that day.  She says that, because she loves her group and wants to share any GRACES with them, she asked Our Blessed Mother if they could participate in this walk with her.  This made Our Blessed Mother very, very happy and wants us to share in these graces and emphasizes that we do not know how much this is helping Padre Pio.  Dory sacrificed by walking barefoot for 2 kilometers and shares that, if her FAITH was not strong, she would have given up because her feet were so cold and bleeding from the small stones on the sidewalk.  She prayed to Our Lord saying;  « I will continue, I will not give up!»

After that, she felt nothing and continued with the walk.

She says that this proves that, no matter how big the problem, ALL will be accomplished if we have FAITH.  That is all that Our Lord and Our Blessed Mother are asking from us.  From now on make a promise to Our Lord, Our Blessed Mother and Padre Pio.  This is the beginning –we WILL continue– we WILL do it.  Look at Padre Pio –because of his STRONG FAITH– he did not give up and NOW he is a Saint.  Pray to Padre Pio and ask him to help us to make our faith stronger.

Dory is very happy as she shares that Our Blessed Mother wants us to bring our SMILES to ALL and share the LOVE in our hearts to those around us especially those in our own homes.  Remember the SMILE of Our Blessed Mother and also ask Padre Pio to help us.

Dory is also asking us to come here on June 15th to celebrate Padre Pio’s Canonization.  Don’t worry about the time or the cost of the gasoline to get here –Our Blessed Mother will provide.

Dory ends by saying;  «God Bless you All.»

2002 June 15th, Farm

The day was overcast with a light rain as we gathered around the Statue of Padre Pio which was donated to celebrate his canonization as a Saint which was to take place in Rome on Sunday, June 16th.  Dory was emotional as the statue was unveiled and it was a touching scene as a local Priest was present to pray with us and bless this beautiful statue.  It was interesting to note that Father mentioned that he forgot the Holy Water that he was going to use to bless the statue but said that the «light rain» from above was also a Blessing.  (Dory mentioned later that the Statue had already been blessed with Holy Water before it was delivered here.)  It was a memorable ceremony as we sang while Dory distributed medals and small statues of Padre Pio to the people who were present.  Before beginning the Stations of the Cross, Dory shared this with us.

She says that, before 1994, she did not know who Padre Pio was.  On December 8th, 1994 (the day that Our Blessed Mother appeared on the tree that She instructed to be cut down and distribute the wood to the people), someone took a picture of Dory who was holding a Crucifix in her hands at this time.  When the picture was developed, there was also an image which was present beside the Crucifix.  Dory knew that she was not carrying anything else and wondered what or who this was.  At first, she described the image like «a dwarf».  When she inquired who this may be, a friend told her that this was an image of a Italian Priest who was known as Padre Pio.  After finding out more about this Priest, Dory developed a strong devotion and became very close to him.  Soon afterwards, Padre Pio began talking and appearing to her.  She says that he is very special to her as he answers her prayers and gives lots to her - he is a very powerful Saint and Dory says;

«I believe and respect him

Do not forget that he is always helping us by bringing us closer to Our Lord, Jesus and Our Blessed Mother.  Through him we will get what we want.  Have FAITH and BELIEVE.  Dory shares that Our Lord and Our Blessed Mother are FIRST in her life and says that Padre Pio is her favorite Saint and says that she cannot explain how much he has given her.  She encourages us to ask for his help an not to worry.   Dory shares that she was praying in the Church yesterday (for today, June 14th) and says that Our Blessed Mother says that Padre Pio is a great help in the world.  She shares that Our Blessed Mother gives her (Dory) permission to share that it is through the support of the Ricciuto family and through the prayers of the Ave Maria - Padre Pio prayer groups that her dream has come true and Padre Pio is now officially a Saint both on earth and in Heaven.  Padre Pio is always here (Marmora) - TALK to HIM - give everything to him.  Make a promise to him and do what he wants you to do on this earth.  Padre Pio says;

«I am REAL - COME to me and I will bring your sins to Jesus

A few people then gave examples of how Padre Pio has helped them through prayer.

We then continued with the Stations of the Cross saying the Rosary as we walked.  It continued to rain as we approached the 10th Station.  A young Polish Priest was present and blessed Dory.  During the apparition, Dory asked everyone to put down our umbrellas.  Afterwards, she shared this with us.

Again, she thanks everyone for their prayers and for coming here today and encourages us never to give up.  She says that Our Blessed Mother never gets fed up and wants to thank us for continuing to come here - even in the rain - and says that this is a test for us.  Dory says that she asked Padre Pio to stop the rain - not for herself but for the people who were present.  This did not happen.  She felt a little confused because last week, when the statue of Padre Pio was being set in the cement, she asked for the rain (thunderstorm) to stop and her prayers were answered.  She thought that this would happen again today but the rain continued.  She was not disappointed that her prayers were not answered as she believes that there is a reason for everything and that this is a trial for us.  Dory shares that Our Blessed Mother was SMILING saying;

« It is nothing that you are asking.  It is most important to ask Jesus to take away our sins - to forgive us our sins.  The rain that is coming is washing away our sins, our problems and our pain

(That explains why Dory asks us to put down our umbrellas.)  Our Blessed Mother was SMILING saying that our prayers are being answered.  Do not worry about the physical - this is not important.  It is  MOST IMPORTANT to WASH AWAY our sins.  Our Blessed Mother is always emphasizing that this is the time to PRAY HARD.  Go to Church; go to Confession.  Love one another - now we know that the world is getting worse - we are reminded what was said on the 1st Saturday in May - to SAVE OUR OWN SOULS.

Give our hearts to Our Lord, Jesus and to Our Blessed Mother.  BEG Padre Pio to help us - that is what he did - he gave his heart to Our Lord, Jesus and to Our Blessed Mother.  FOLLOW what he did on earth.  The statue is a reminder that he is here and Padre Pio says;

«Come and I will bring you to Our Lord, Jesus and Our Blessed Mother

It is REAL what is happening - what is going to happen.  Again, we are encouraged to continue what we are doing.  Forget our problems; help each other and love one another.  Do not hate and do not be greedy.  It is MOST IMPORTANT to SAVE OUR SOULS.  Our Lord, Jesus, Our Blessed Mother and Padre Pio want us to meet Them in Heaven.

Dory ends by saying;  «God Bless You All.»

2002 July 6th, First Saturday, Farm

It was a hot sunny day as we joined with a large group of young people who were re-enacting the Passion of Jesus.  Dory shares with us that Our Blessed Mother wants us to FEEL the REAL Passion of Jesus as we follow along the Way of the Cross.  Do not look at this as just a show but remember what Jesus did for us to SAVE THE WORLD.  Jesus wants us to FEEL what He did for us.  Think of the LIFE of JESUS as we participate in this procession.

A loudspeaker guided us through the Stations as the characters played the parts of Jesus, Pontius Pilot, Mary, the Roman soldiers etc.  The scene was touching as we followed Jesus as He carried His cross.  Dory was very emotional as it was obvious that could feel the pain of Jesus.  At the 10th Station, after Jesus was crucified, Dory kissed the wounds of Jesus and we sang “Were You There.  After the apparition, Dory was asked to lead the procession to the last Station of the Resurrection.  As we began the Divine Mercy Chaplet, Dory pointed to her watch to show that the time was exactly 3:00 P.M.  As usual, we know that this is no coincidence.

When the Stations and our prayers were finished, Dory shared this with us.

She thanks all the young people who participated in this Passion.  Our Blessed Mother asked Dory to pray for those who performed and reminds us that this is nothing compared to what Jesus went through when He carried His Cross - suffering and dying for us.

The young people are asked to continue what they are doing as they are doing this for the Glory of Jesus.  Dory then prayed with these young people as Our Blessed Mother asked and each was given a medal or small statue as a reminder of this day.

During this time, many people sang and the atmosphere was a happy one.

2002 August 3rd, First Saturday, Farm

It was a hot day as we did the Stations of the Cross saying the Rosary as we walked and it was obvious to see that it was a sacrifice for many people as they endured the heat of the summer sun.  At the 10th Station we all gathered around waiting for Our Blessed Mother and for Dory to share with us.  During the apparition, as she looked upward, Dory was heard to say;  I love You.”  Afterwards, she shared this with us.

It was four years ago, in 1998, that she together with a group, went to Italy and visited the resting place of Saint Padre Pio in San Giovanni Rotondo.  At that time, Our Blessed Mother asked Dory to come back here after Padre Pio became a Saint.  Dory was hoping to go to Italy for the canonization of Padre Pio but was unable to do so because she cannot obtain a seat for a flight to Italy as the airlines were fully booked.  Asking Our Blessed Mother when she should return to Italy to fulfil her promise, She answered that “there is no need to rush”.  Dory says that sometime in the future she will fulfil this promise.  During this time (in 1998) the group was also blessed to be present in St. Peter’s Square as the Pope was passing through the crowd in the Pope mobile.  Before going to the Vatican, Dory prayed to Our Blessed  Mother saying;  “ Please, Blessed Mother, I want to kiss the feet of the Pope.”  Dory was fortunate enough to touch the hand of the Pope but, at this time did not have the opportunity to kiss the feet of the Pope.  She felt happy that she touched his hand but was disappointed that she did not get her wish.  During her prayers, Our Blessed Mother said to her;  You will kiss the feet of the Pope.”

Dory waited and four years went by (1998-2002) and she wondered when this would happen.  She believed and had strong FAITH in what Our Blessed Mother told her and even wondered if this wish would come true after she died.  She did not worry about it and accepted the will of Our Blessed Mother.

Last Sunday, July 28th (World Youth Day), there was a Papal Mass and nearly 1,000,000 people were present for this occasion.  A group was present with Dory as we attended the celebration of this historical day . There was a mixture of disturbing weather –from a heavy downpour of rain to extreme wind to a hot sun.  It was touching to hear the Pope’s voice as he loudly said that “This is a natural Baptism” and then “Here comes the sun”.

One of the sponsors chose Dory to represent them to have a private audience with the Pope.  Memories of Our Blessed Mother’s words filled her mind and she knew that it was Our Blessed Mother’s will that she have this opportunity to have a private audience with the Holy Father.  She describes this memorable event in this way.

  A friend drove her to Sister’s of St. Joseph where the Holy Father  was residing while in Toronto and where the private audience was to take place in the residence Chapel. Looking around, it was obvious to Dory that she was the only one present who was not a sponsor and that they were all rich people.  She was convinced that it was God’s will that she was here.  She was crying and praying as she waited for her turn to see the Pope.  One by one they went in and then it was Dory’s turn.  She approached the Holy Father and immediately knelt to “kiss the feet” of the Pope.  She was emotional as she described how he held her hands tightly and as he touched her face tenderly.  They did not talk but she looked into his eyes and was aware of the situation of the Pope –he was expected to rest but she knew that he was doing this for us –for the world.  He didn’t complain offering ALL his sufferings to Our Lord and Our Blessed Mother.  Dory knew that this was an example for all of us.

Absorbing this experience, the time came when the Cardinal present motioned her on so that others could follow. The Pope held her hand tightly and continued to touch her face and did not rush her. She calmly got up and moved on. Afterwards, she met with friends when she left the Chapel and they were surprised to see that she was quiet with no sign of excitement  on her face. Dory herself did not understand this lack of feeling as she remembered how she experienced tears of excitement when she saw the helicopter carrying the Pope back in 1984 when he came to Canada. She was surprised and did understand this lack of feeling that she experienced now. She asked herself “why” and felt that maybe she was not worthy to have this privilege of a private audience with the Pope.  She prayed to Our Blessed Mother saying;  Help me –let me feel him– You know how much I love the Pope!”  Our Blessed Mother responded by saying;

“At the time you were with the Pope —you forgot about yourself because you prayed for everyone, especially your sponsor.  Nobody did what you did.”

Dory now understood –this is TRUE– that is why she did not experience excitement for herself.  She says that she offered everyone –all those who help and support her– she offered the world at the feet of the Pope.  She says that Our Lord and Our Blessed Mother accept  ALL of us and that  “We are all Blessed!”

She emphasizes to us NOT to complain about the problems and the sufferings that we have. OFFER them to Our Lord and Our Blessed Mother.

Dory also shared that it is 10 years since she has been coming here (Marmora) and she celebrated her 10th Anniversary by coming here yesterday (August 2nd).  When she came here 10 years ago, there were 7 people in the group when Our Blessed Mother first appeared to her. This day (Aug. 2nd) was the same –there were 7 people.  They did the Stations of the Cross and prayed the Rosary. Dory thanked Our Lord, Our Blessed Mother and  St. Padre Pio for her reaching and celebrating this 10 years of coming here to Marmora.  Our Blessed Mother appeared to her saying;

“I am here joining with your joy.”

She also reminded Dory that; Just like 10 years ago, many people claimed to have seen Her (Our Blessed Mother) but where are they now?  The people who are still here because of what you (Dory) are doing to them are more Blessed than the people claiming to have seen Me.”  Our Blessed Mother then said to Dory; “ I am always with you.”

Have FAITH –BELIEVE and you will get everything that you want.  Do not be discouraged –remember that there is ONLY one thing that is important and that is to go to HEAVEN.

HAVE  FAITH –Our Blessed Mother is always here with us.

Our Blessed Mother is BEGGING us to make a sacrifice and come back here on September 8th –the Feast of the Nativity of Our Blessed Mother–  Remember Sept. 11th –it seems like only yesterday.  Please come back on Sept. 8th– it is VERY, VERY   IMPORTANT.  Our prayers are NOT wasted.  She needs lots of prayer.  Always remember that what we do here is only temporary –HEAVEN is FOREVER .

Dory ends by saying; Thank you until the end and you are always in my heart.”

“God Bless You all.”

2002 September 7th, First Saturday, Farm

Today was a hot sunny day as we once again did the Stations of the Cross praying the Rosary as we walked.  At the 10th Station, during the apparition, Dory asked a Priest, who was present, to bless the people.  She shared afterwards that, through this Priest, Our Blessed Mother blessed us all.

After the apparition, Dory shared this with us.  She welcomes any new people and hopes that they understand her English.  She shares that today is very nice and it is beautiful because the most important thing is that Our Blessed Mother is very, very happy and wants to share with us Her Feelings through Dory.  She gives us an example saying that, when we have a birthday, it is our tradition to prepare for the celebration the day before by usually getting a present.  Today, Our Blessed Mother wants us to do the same (since tomorrow- Sept. 8, is Her Birthday) –She wants us to prepare something for Her Birthday on the day before.

Dory shares that Our Blessed Mother wants us to prepare for Her Birthday by GIVING OUR HEARTS to Her and BELIEVING that She is here and WILL be here with us tomorrow (Sept. 8).  Not all can see Our Lord, Our Blessed Mother and Saint Padre Pio with our eyes but  BELIEVE through FAITH that They are here and always watching us.  It is THROUGH OUR FAITH that we see.

Tomorrow is a big, big celebration and Our Blessed Mother is asking us to BELIEVE that She is here.  She says that, “You will not regret –I guarantee that.”  She is begging us to PRAY HARD– double our prayers and BE READY.  Remember last year–after Her Birthday –only a few days later something happened.  We are reminded anytime something can happen –any second!

If we are close to Our Lord and Our Blessed Mother and listen to what They are saying –there is nothing to worry about or to be afraid of.  They want us to be with Them in Heaven.

Remember to always LOVE one another.  Go to Church every Sunday.  Go to Confession.  It is not always easy but Our Blessed Mother is begging us to answer and follow what She is asking us to do so that we will BE READY.  Keep on doing what She wants us to do.  Our Blessed Mother says that, tomorrow, She will give us a special present also.  Through Dory, we will feel what She feels.

BE STRONG.  Do not worry or be concerned with material things.  Give ALL our prayers and sacrifices to Our Lord and Our Blessed Mother.

Dory ends by saying; “God Bless You All.”

2002 September 8th, Farm

The day was much like yesterday as the sun was shining on this hot day as we gathered at the request of Our Blessed Mother to share this day with Her and to celebrate Her Birthday.  Before starting the Stations of the Cross, kneeling before the statue of St. Padre Pio, Dory says that we have come here to join with Our Blessed Mother to celebrate Her Birthday and reminds us of what Our Blessed Mother shared with us yesterday (Sept.7th) –and, in the same way that we have prepared for Her Birthday, Our Blessed Mother says that, today, we will also receive a special gift.

She knows what is best for us and wants us to have FAITH and BELIEVE from our hearts that today She will give us a special gift.

We continued with the Stations of the Cross saying the Rosary as we walked.  There were many people present as we reached the 10th Station.  Before the apparition, a nice Priest who was present, blessed Dory.  During the apparition, we could plainly see that something special was happening.  Dory had a different expression ( like a little surprised look) on her face and she stood up for only a second –and then knelt again.  Just as she knelt, she held out her tongue as if to receive Holy Communion.  Afterwards, she was very emotional and prostrated herself as she kissed the ground.  There was singing from two young girls and also a special “Happy Birthday” song was sung just after the apparition.

Afterwards, Dory shared this with us.  First of all, she shared that, last week, Our Blessed  Mother asked her to bring candles here to be blessed and to give a candle to anyone (one per family) who does not already have a Blessed Candle from this Holy Place.  Dory reminds us of how many times Our Blessed Mother asked us to have Blessed Candles in our homes and how very, very important this is.  Do not question why –you will see– we will need them.  At this time, she handed out candles to those who did not have one.

She continued to share with us and asked us to make this occasion a very, very special Holy Day –a gift from our hearts.  She says that before she shares what happened today –she wants to share what happened to her last night in her home.  Last evening, on her way home from Church, she felt guilty because she did not cook for her children today.  It was getting late and she wanted to finish with her cooking so that she could pray before midnight in preparation for Our Blessed Mother’s Birthday.

It was now 11:25pm and she prayed to St. Padre Pio (talking to him like a friend) saying; “Help me finish my cooking —if I don’t finish in time, then it is your fault.”

Our Blessed Mother knows what is in Dory’s heart and she finished her cooking by 11:45pm.  She prepared her three candles and shares that this is the first time that her husband joined her in saying her midnight prayers.  It was now midnight and Our Blessed Mother was not there yet as she prayed;  Blessed Mother, I want to make my group happy —I want them to feel Your Presence and Your Love on your Birthday.  Even if You do not appear to me anymore, I will continue what I am doing.”

Our Blessed Mother appeared to her wearing a White Gown and responded by saying;
“Remember that I said before that I will never leave you.”

Dory says that Our Blessed Mother stayed with her for awhile and says that, one of these days, She will allow her to tell us what She said last night.

Dory continues with her sharing and says that here –today is the most important day in her life.  She says that today she received Holy Communion from St. Padre Pio --today she received the Body of Jesus from St. Padre Pio.  She was very emotional as she described how St. Padre Pio appeared with Our Blessed Mother standing beside him at his right side.  This explains her surprise when she stood for a second before kneeling to receive Holy Communion.  She shares that Our Blessed Mother asked Her Son, Jesus to allow St. Padre Pio to give Holy Communion to Dory as an EXAMPLE for us.  She asked Her Son to show us how we are to receive Him when we receive His Body and Blood.  Dory says;

“I don’t know how to thank Her and She is only asking me to share what Her Son, Jesus wants us to do.”

Dory shares that Our Blessed Mother is very, very sad and Her Heart is broken because we do not know how important it is when we receive Holy Communion –the Body of Jesus.  Many people receive Holy Communion in the same way like they are receiving candy.

Jesus reminds us by saying;
“Before and now –I am always the same –only people change.”

Our Blessed Mother wants Dory to tell us that She (Our Blessed Mother) wants us to follow the EXAMPLE given today.

Receive Jesus kneeling down in front of a Priest.  If any Priest should refuse to give you Holy Communion in this way –then just look at him and say;
“I will pray for you Father.”

Our Blessed Mother is very, very sad with Priests who do not allow people to receive Jesus in the proper way.  Many people do not go to Confession and STILL receive Holy Communion just as if they are taking candy.  Our Blessed Mother feels hurt that we do not follow what Her Son, Jesus wants and is begging us to PRAY HARD for the Priests because we NEED them.  If we are in the state of sin –GO to CONFESSION before we receive Jesus if we want to save our souls.  Receive Jesus in the proper way!

Dory reminds us that this is a Special Day –and hopes that we remember that Our Blessed Mother has given us a “Special Gift” from Her Son.  Always follow what Our Lord, Jesus and Our Blessed Mother ask of us.

TIME IS SHORT –remember that at any second something can happen.  If our souls are ready –then there is nothing to worry about and nothing to be afraid of.  Dory shares that Our Blessed Mother is Blessing all of us and hopes that we follow the message from Her and accept the GIFT that She gave to us today.

Please BELIEVE what She is saying.  Dory also thanks St. Padre Pio and says; “I love him very much.”  We are reminded to try our best to follow his example and pray to St. Padre Pio for guidance.  The Priest who was present blessed us all and had tears in his eyes as he listened to what Dory was sharing.

Dory ends by saying; “God Bless You All.”

2002 October 5th, First Saturday, Farm

It was a pleasant fall day as we gathered at the Statue of Saint Padre Pio to begin the Stations of the Cross.  There was a large crowd of people praying the Rosary as we walked and reached the 10th Station.  A young lady sang «Ave Maria» so beautifully.  During the apparition Dory was seen to stretch her hands in the direction of the apparition cradling two light yellow roses in the palms of her hands as if offering them to Our Blessed Mother.  After the apparition, Dory shared this with us.

Before starting the Stations, many people ask her to pray for each one individually and she wants us to please understand and know that she will not forget to pray for everyone.  Our Blessed Mother knows what we need –She knows what is in our heart.  Dory never forgets to pray for us especially when Our Blessed Mother is here and says that if we only knew how happy it makes Our Blessed Mother when we are all here together smiling and praying.  Please don’t get tired of doing what She wants us to do.

Dory says that, on September 8th, Our Blessed Mother promised to give us a gift and she (Dory) shares that she received a most important gift and hopes that we all feel the same way.  Our Blessed Mother did not TELL the world how to receive Her Son, Jesus in Holy Communion BUT, through this gift, She confirmed that this is the RIGHT WAY –the proper way to receive the Eucharist.  It is up to us if we want to follow and except this gift.  Those people who do not listen will someday learn how to receive the Body of Jesus properly.  By following this request, Our Blessed Mother confirms that we will receive many more gifts from Our Lord and from Her.

Dory says that her telephone is always ringing –many people are not happy because of the way that Priests are treating them.  One lady gave an example of, when she knelt for Communion, the Priest complained that she was wasting time and that she was distracting to others.  Dory answers by saying that she is NOT judging these Priests but, if they really believed –they would not do that.

After talking to this lady, Dory felt hurt and cried as she thought about the words of this Priest.  As always, she prayed to Our Blessed Mother because She always knows what to say and how to answer these questions.  Our Blessed Mother answers Dory by saying;

«When somebody tells you this again, let them know --when My Son, Jesus was suffering and dying on the Cross for them –was He wasting His time?  Not until His Last Breath –He did not give in– He did not waste His time.  It is still hurting Him

It only takes a few seconds and some Priests complain –it is so sad.  Dory is asking us not to be scared –just be ready for what they will do.  Just BELIEVE and FORGIVE.  This is REALLY TRUE.  Receive Jesus in the PROPER WAY.  Only a few Priests follow what Our Blessed Mother is asking.  Don’t be afraid –we show our love for Jesus and Our Blessed Mother by following Her word –showing us how to receive Her Son, Jesus and this is the LAST word from Her showing us how to be CLOSER to Jesus.

Dory also shares another example from someone else who told her that the one Priest said that receiving Holy Communion on the tongue is sinful and that we should receive the Eucharist in the hand.  Again, Dory prayed to Our Blessed Mother because many people are saying that, as a result of Vatican 11, there is confusion because we are told that we should be receiving Holy Communion in the hand.  Our Blessed Mother answered Dory by saying;

«Tell them --when they receive My Son, Jesus in their hands– what are they going to do?  Throw Him in the garbage?  (No-They put the Host on their tongue).  What is the difference

Remember to follow what Our Blessed Mother is asking of us –receive Jesus in the PROPER WAY –on the tongue kneeling in front of a Priest.  This is the LAST, LAST word from Our Blessed Mother showing us how to be closer to Her Son, Jesus.

Do not worry –there is nothing to be afraid of if we follow what She is asking of us.  Please continue what we are doing –that is what She wants us to do.  Remember the world –it is getting close ---we will not regret what we do and it makes Our Blessed Mother very happy.

Dory ends by saying;  «God Bless You All.»

Dory will not be in Marmora on 1st Saturday in November but will come on November 9th instead.  Also, if anyone has a physical problem and is unable to kneel for Communion –then a genuflection or some form of reverence is acceptable.

2002 November 9th, Second Saturday, Farm

We were blessed with a pleasant day as we gathered to pray and do the Stations of the Cross.  Reaching the 10th Station, we sang and prepared with anticipation for Our Blessed Mother to visit with Dory and with us.  Just previous to the apparition, Dory was seen to clutch her chest as if in pain and was heard to say;
«My Lord, My God - I will accept - give me more

Within a few minutes, it was obvious to us that Our Blessed Mother was now talking to her.  Before sharing, she got up and stood in front of a young man (who was in a wheelchair) and prayed touching his knees with her hands.

Afterwards, Dory shared this with us.  Our Blessed Mother is very happy with the prayers and sacrifices that we do by coming here.  It made Our Lord and Our Blessed Mother happy listening to the rustling of the leaves as we walked along the path between the Stations.  To Them, it is beautiful and They are thankful especially to all who come here and follow what we are asked to do.

Dory says that she cannot express enough her thanks and shares;
«I cannot express the way that I feel, the suffering that I have.  It is nothing for me and it is between Jesus, Our Blessed Mother, St. Padre Pio and me who know what I am carrying.  If I can carry everyone of you and accept your sufferings - I will do it.  I asked Our Lord, Jesus to especially let me accept the suffering of this boy (in the wheelchair)

She says that, day by day, there are many changes around us and emphasizes to us that, day by day, we must do more because of what is happening in the world.  Things are getting much worse.  It is always the same - PRAY HARD - continue what we are doing and do not give up.  Without this, we are all finished.  Dory says that she knows that some believe what Our Blessed Mother is telling us and are hurt because there are many people who do not believe when we share the message with them.  Our Blessed Mother reminds Dory to tell all of us - DO NOT WORRY;  DO NOT GIVE UP and ACCEPT what She is saying and do not be concerned as long as we FOLLOW and continue to spread Her message.

Our Lord, Jesus and Our Blessed Mother see and know all and They remind us again of places like Lourdes, Fatima, Garabandal and Medjugorje.  If we think of all the messages that Our Blessed Mother gave to us and yet the world is worse - WHY?  - because we ignore the messages that She gave to us already!  Dory also shares that, believe it or not, this place is the LAST WARNING to ready ourselves.  Please do not disappoint Our Blessed Mother - DO NOT IGNORE Her messages.  Accept this place and continue to come here.  It is not hard to follow if we believe in Heaven, Hell and Purgatory.  Why believe? - to make ourselves happy in Heaven -please BELIEVE that Heaven is waiting for us.

Our Blessed Mother is BEGGING us to pray to save our souls.  If only we could see Heaven - we WOULD BELIEVE and FOLLOW what we are asked to do.  Dory shares that;  «You are different when you see Heaven» (Dory has seen Heaven).  Be thankful to God that I am here - accept my help and prayers.  I only want you all to be in Heaven with Our Lord, Jesus and Our Blessed Mother.  DO NOT WASTE this precious life and time.  You do not know how many GRACES that we got - DO NOT WASTE these GRACES - continue to carry them tomorrow and many days to come so that we may go to Heaven with Jesus.  Accept any sufferings and do not complain as this is a big help to our souls. .»  Dory shares;
«If you only knew what I suffer -I do not complain but instead, ask for more.  I am not lying - only Our Lord, Our Blessed Mother and
St. Padre Pio know what I feel - they are the witness.  Why am I doing this and accepting this suffering?  It is not only for me but for the whole world

Accept every single moment of suffering for our souls - it is a Purgatory on earth.  Continue to accept sufferings - God knows what is good for us and He will provide all what we need.  Dory encourages us to please help each other and to also please pray for her too.  Our Lord, Our Blessed Mother and St. Padre Pio know how much she repents when she does something wrong.

There are some people who do not care about the messages and what we are sharing.  We are encouraged to just smile and say 1 Hail Mary for the person who says that he (she) does not believe.

Dory thanks all for their support and prayers and encourages us to bring the peace that we get from here home and share it with those around us.  She also asks us to show our presence to Our Blessed Mother and make a sacrifice by coming back here on December 8th.

She ends by saying;  «God Bless You All.»

2002 December 7th, First Saturday of the month, Farm

It was a cold wintry day as we gathered around the Statue of Padre Pio to begin our prayers before starting the Stations of the Cross.  Here, Dory was seen to be crying as we were singing the usual songs before starting the Rosary.  She shared this with us.

Dory shares that we have to BELIEVE in what we are doing and that, as a result, we are helping to save souls.  She says that, as we were singing, Padre Pio talked to her and wants her to share with us an experience that she had –proving to all that what she is saying is REAL and from Our Lord and Our Blessed Mother and also that it is TRUE that Heaven really exits.

Dory wants us to know that what she is going to share is an EXAMPLE for us and wants to encourage us to continue with what we are doing.  She says that what happened to her is difficult to explain and it was so special and nice making her very, very happy.  She began by sharing that we usually go, annually as a group, to New Jersey to join with the group there to celebrate the devotion to Our Lady of Guadalupe, Divine Mercy and Padre Pio.  On the way there, we stopped in Stockbridge, Massachusetts in order to attend Mass at the Divine Mercy Shrine.  Here, some of us went to Confession before Mass.

Dory shares that it was at her Parish Church that she began the experience that she cannot explain.  When she went to Confession –the Priest did not give her a penance but instead said to her;  «You will save one soul and you can choose which soul you save.»  She did not understand the reason for this and wondered which soul this would be.  There were many people who have died –friends and family– but she chose the person who immediately came to her mind –the Grandmother ( who had died in October) of one of the members of the group.  She did not understand why she chose this soul –only God knows the reason.

Dory was very happy but did not know how or when this was going to come about.  She prayed hard and visited the Blessed Sacrament on the following Friday evening (Nov. 22) and prayed to Jesus to help her to understand.  Jesus answered her and said;
«It is true, you will save one soul and you will see this soul go to Heaven.»

Dory could not stop crying and could not imagine seeing this happen.  Jesus told her that this would happen on December 3rd –this date was 40 days after the death of Grandmother.  She wanted to share this experience with her group at the next prayer meeting which was on November 23rd and prayed to Jesus saying;
« I am not worthy —will they believe me?»

Jesus answered her by saying;
«If they believe that you are seeing and talking to Me and My Mother —then they will believe you.»

Dory was very excited and anxiously waited for December 3rd.  She usually goes to Mass each morning and was sure that this would happen when she was in the Church.  On the morning of December 3rd, she was saying her morning prayers in front of her altar in her bedroom.  Suddenly there was a blackout (no lights).  She saw lots of stars around her and saw Grandmother standing with Our Blessed Mother at her left side.  There were many, many little angels all around and she could not believe what she was seeing as she witnessed Grandmother with Our Blessed Mother beside her going up to Heaven.  As she looked up, she saw Jesus waiting in Heaven.  Dory was so happy and crying as she experienced this –saying that Grandmother was so happy and beautiful (which she could not express with words).  Before entering Heaven –she turned and looked at Dory with a beautiful smile saying;
«Thank  you.  Now I see all that you do –if only the world could see and please continue to pray for my family

Dory says that she cannot put into words how happy and beautiful Grandmother was as she entered Heaven and how clear everything was to her(Dory).  She also wants to share that she called her husband and he is a witness to the blackout in the bedroom.  Even though he could turn on the lights in the rest of the house, at that time, the lights in the bedroom would not turn on.  A little later, the lights worked fine.  It was very obvious to him that this was unusual.

Dory shares that she is very thankful to Padre Pio for helping her to save this soul as he wants to PROVE to us that this is not a joke and that Heaven really exists.  Why would we not want to go there?  We must try our best to meet Them (Our Lord, Our Blessed Mother and Padre Pio) in Heaven.  If we believe that Our Blessed Mother is appearing here –then we will believe that Grandmother is in Heaven.  Dory does not know why she chose this soul to save –only God knows the reason.

We are encouraged to forget about the cold that we are experiencing now.  Dory reminds us to Consecrate ourselves to Our Blessed Mother and She will bring us to Our Lord, Jesus so that we too will be in Heaven.

We then continued with our prayers as we did the Stations of the Cross and reached the 10th Station.  Gathering around the Station, it was obvious to us that Our Blessed Mother appeared to Dory before we finished the prayers.  Afterwards, she shared this with us.

Dory was very happy and asked us if we felt the cold as our hearts were warm.  She thanks all of us for being here in spite of the weather –especially those who came from far away.  We do not realize how many GRACES we are receiving because of this sacrifice.  Tomorrow (Dec.8th) is a very special day as it is the 10th year anniversary coming to this place on this special day.  Dory shares that she also has had some trials and that the devil is trying to discourage her.  In 1992 on Dec.8th, the devil pushed her and she fractured her ankle and on the following year, on the same date, she was in the Philippines and her bag was cut and, as a result, all her belongings were stolen.  She also experienced a car accident another year on this same date.  If she did not have FAITH –in the 1st year, she would have given up.  By this FAITH and by continuing to come here –she proves to Our Lord, Our Blessed Mother and Padre Pio that she BELIEVES that They are always with her.  «How many GRACES have I gotten by coming here for the past 10 years and doing what I am supposed to do  Material things are not important –Our Lord will provide.  Dory wants and hopes that we are all a part of doing what Our Blessed Mother is asking of us.

She shares that tomorrow (Dec.8th) –Our Blessed Mother asked her to go on each bus so that She (Our Blessed Mother) will Bless (through Dory) each person on the bus.  She will start to enter the buses at 1200 noon and will continue until all the buses are done.  Whoever cannot come tomorrow –they are with her (Dory) in her prayers.  Dory encourages us to come back and says that you will see that you will get a Special Blessing from Our Blessed Mother.

She also reminds us about the chosen tree that Our Blessed Mother appeared on in 1994 and asked that it be cut down to distribute pieces of this tree to the people.  Last Thursday, people were asking for pieces of this tree and she asked her husband to cut up a branch to get more pieces of wood. Upon cutting a round piece of the branch, he noticed that there was an image on each side of the cut piece of wood.  The image on one side looked like Our Blessed Mother and on the other side the image looked like Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament.

Dory took this piece of wood with her the following evening to the Blessed Sacrament and prayed to Our Lord and Our Blessed Mother.  She shares that Our Blessed Mother says that this is REAL and that this sign –the images-- proves that this tree is not a fake.  TRUST in this and use the pieces of this tree with FAITH.  If you are sick or need spiritual strength –put a piece of this wood and boil it with water and drink it.

We sometimes ask ourselves -why do we do this?  Because we BELIEVE that there is Heaven, Purgatory and Hell and we want to go to Heaven --the most important thing is to save our souls.  Be thankful to Padre Pio for asking Dory to share this experience (soul going to Heaven) with us –he is in our generation.  We are asked not to stop –please continue what we are doing.  Don’t get tired.  Pray hard.  Follow what Our Blessed Mother is asking of us.  Always love one another.  Go to Mass every Sunday and go to Confession.  Do ALL we can do to save our souls.  Do not worry about material things.  Continue what we are doing.  Dory reminds us that we are always with her and in her prayers.  She reminds us to Consecrate ourselves (heart and souls) to Our Blessed Mother at all times.

Dory ends by saying;  "I Love You and God Bless Yous All."

2002 December 8th, Feast of Immaculate Conception, Farm

It was very cold as Dory visited each bus to give a Special Blessing from Our Blessed Mother (through Dory) to each person on the buses.  When she was finished, we gathered at the Statue of Padre Pio to begin our prayers and do the Stations of the Cross.  Many people found it very difficult to be exposed to this cold weather.  We reached the 10th Station and we were blessed to have a kind, spiritual Priest present who blessed Dory before the apparition.  Afterwards, Dory shared this with us.

She shares that we all pray and wish for more Priests like this Special one here today.  She says that Our Blessed Mother is very happy and thankful for all the sacrifices and sufferings through the patience that we have shown in this cold weather.  Our Blessed Mother is also very, very happy that Dory followed Her request by going on the buses to Bless the people.

She (Dory) repeats that 10 years ago today-she experienced her first trial here and, for three years in a row on the same date (Dec. 8th) she was tested with trials.  If it was not for her FAITH-she would not be here now.  It is sad to see that so many people have come here before and many have seen Our Blessed Mother -where are they now?  Our Blessed Mother asked Dory to tell all -if we believe what Jesus did- how can we not believe what is happening on earth.  Why are we not following the messages?  If we have FAITH -we will follow and BELIEVE what is happening and that Our Blessed Mother is appearing to save our souls and to prove that there is a Heaven.  Why are we here if we do not believe?  We must continue what we are doing so that we can go to Heaven.

Dory emphasizes to us to just continue what we are doing -we CAN do it.  Forget about and do not concentrate on waiting for what is to come.  Be ready-prepare ourselves to save our souls.  Always love one another.  Go to Mass every Sunday and go to Confession.  Pray hard.  Pray hard.  Pray hard.

She also emphasizes to us that Our Blessed Mother gave us a Very Special Blessing today.

Dory ends by saying;  "I Love You and God Bless You All."

P.S.:  The nice Priest who was present Blessed everyone and asked all to hold up our Rosaries and any candles to be blessed. He said that there was a special indulgence given to these Rosaries that have been Blessed today.
