La Salette, Knock and the Book of Truth (Part 2)
Miracle at Knock, Ireland:
It had been pouring rain all day on 21st August, 1879. In the evening, 15 local people saw the apparition of Mary, St Joseph, St John the Evangelist, and a lamb standing on an altar before a cross, in front of the parish church’s gable wall.
The vision was very clear. It stood out from the gable wall of the church, and was about 2 feet from the ground. To the west of it appeared the Virgin Mary, St. Joseph, and St. John.
The vision lasted for about two to three hours and then faded.
Our Lady was in the centre of the apparition and was the tallest of them all. She was wearing a large brilliant gold crown and was clothed in white garments. Her hands were raised in prayer and her eyes gazed toward heaven.
To her right was her spouse, St. Joseph, whose head was inclined toward her.
To her left was St. John the Evangelist, who was attired as a bishop wearing a mitre and was holding a book, (perhaps his book of the Apocalypse) in his left hand. His right hand was raised as if he were preaching.
To the left of St. John was an altar on which stood a cross and a lamb surrounded by angels.
Though it was raining, the ground beneath the vision was dry. The constant rain represented the sorrow and the tears relating to Our Lady, the Church and the world.
The enigma of the apparition at Knock was its silence. There was no message given, unlike at other apparition sites.
The unspoken message was one of love and solidarity with the perseveringly faithful Irish in their time of suffering and sorrow. They had suffered famine and potato blight since 1847. https://www.catholicworldreport.com/2018/08/21/the-unspoken-message-of-heaven-at-knock/
What could all this mean?
- It was the eve of the Feast of the Immaculate Heart – reminding us of the Seven Sorrows of our Lady.
- It was to remind us that the Eucharist – the Mass – is the source and summit of the Christian life.
- The angels are there, as they are at each Mass, around the Lamb, adoring and praising Him..
- Mary, the tallest, with her gold crown and white garments, is the Queen of heaven and earth. Mary is also Queen of the angels. She will crush the head of Satan.
- The Cross and the Lamb also testify to the Eucharistic Sacrifice and to our Salvation by Jesus on the Cross. (Jesus is the Lamb of God).
- Mary was in the centre, in front of the Cross and looking up to heaven with hands joined. She is praying and interceding for us – she is the Co-Redemptrix
- St Joseph’s head was inclined to her – as if telling us to listen to our Mother and Co-Redemptrix.
- St Joseph, the patriarch of the Church, is seen bowing in prayer – praying for the Church as it goes through its crucifixion, and as patron saint of the Family, is interceding for us at this time when the definition of family is much under attack with same sex marriage legally accepted and on the rise, the evils of abortion and euthanasia becoming wider spread.
- Mary, herself is the Mother of the Church.
- There was Silence, which is the essence of prayer. At the foot of the Cross, Mary said nothing. The silence was a deep, contemplative silence.
It was a silence of prayer, of doing penance and of placing ourselves at the foot of the Cross and being in union with Christ’s sufferings. It is to let us know that Jesus is with us in our times of suffering and sorrow.
La Salette and Knock are connected
- The apparition at Knock occurred at the very hour that the Basilica at La Salette was consecrated
- For this reason, the sorrows which were part of Our Lady’s message at La Salette, are obviously connected to the apparition at Knock.
- The ‘Hand of God” at La Salette and book of St John (the Apocalypse) are one and the same – i.e. lack of faith, sin and chastisement..
Knock and Book of Truth are connected and inter-related:
- La Salette, Knock and the Book of Truth are about the times which are upon us – they concern “the mission of salvation”; a plea for penance and prayer – in order to save souls and to help us survive these times.
- They point to sin and apostasy in the world; to the neglect of the Eucharist and the Mass; to Mary, our Mother, who intercedes and cries for her children (Co-Redemptrix).
- St John the Evangelist (from the Knock vision, and preaching from his book), is also one of the saints in the Book of Truth, in which Jesus explains the events of the Book of Revelation/Apocalypse, which has been hidden until this time. Knock foretells the Apocalypse. In the Book of Truth, Jesus laments that His “sacred servants” have not prepared His children for His Second coming. They have not preached about the Book of Revelation. This is portrayed by St John in the Knock vision, holding the Book of Revelation in his hand and preaching from it, in his role as a Bishop.
- The actual Church at Knock is the place where Maria received her first call to the Mission that God had selected for her (the Book of Truth): that is the ‘Mission of Salvation’ which encapsulates all of Our Lady’s church-approved appearances which prophesy these end times.(https://missionofsalvation.com/2018/03/18/thinking-of-ireland-on-st-patricks-day
- The lamb on the altar, represents the Lamb of God. It is the Lamb, mentioned in Revelation Chapter 5, that is worthy to open the Seals. The Seals were mentioned in the Book of Daniel, who was told the Seals had to be kept sealed, until the time of the end. In the Book of Truth, Jesus, (the Lamb of God) opens the Seals and explains the events recorded in John’s book. He warns us of the events, which are happening today, and how we are to prepare, and what to expect. He interprets Revelations, as only the Lamb of God can do.
In the end, all of God’s prophecies (through His Mother and other chosen souls) will be fulfilled: Quito, La Salette, Leo XIII, Knock, Fatima and others.
These heavenly interventions are to guide us
and support us through these times.
They are a sign of God’s Love and Mercy!
