In the morning, at the end of Holy Mass in St. Thomas Church, I suddenly hear the Lady’s voice saying, urgently and clearly: “I will come today. Ask your bishop to bring the image back into the church before the arrival of the third hour.” I answer, “I won’t do that. They won’t believe me, anyway.” Then the Lady says, very strictly, “Do what I tell you!”
In the afternoon I am praying the Rosary at home together with my family. During the last glorious mystery, I suddenly hear the voice of the Lady again. She says, “Go to the Wandelweg.”
I am startled and say, “I won’t do that. I have to obey Fr. Frehe; I promised on my honor. Just do something else, because you have to help us.” In the evening, at about half past eight, I hear the Lady’s voice anew. She says, “I am coming today, anyway.” I ask, “But where?” The Lady answers,
“Right here. Let them know, and tell your pastor.” I say, “I won’t do that, because I am not allowed to do anything without Fr. Frehe’s permission.” So I didn’t do it.
For the Sake of the Promise
After adoration in the church, some acquaintances stop by to tell how it went and how beautiful it was.
At exactly ten o’clock, the light suddenly appears in the room. From the bright light the Lady comes forth very slowly. As the Lady is standing there, she says, “Today I have come for the sake of these here.”
She then points at the circle of people sitting around us. “Truly I tell you, the Lord Jesus Christ has sent the Lady of All Nations here to you for the sake of the promise. Tell this to your bishop; tell this to your spiritual director.”
Now the Lady looks at me and smiles at me while saying, “You did well. Obedience had to come first.” Here the Lady pauses for a moment, and then she says,“I said: go to the Wandelweg.”
The Lady then smiles at me and says, “You obeyed. So be it. The Lord demanded this.”
Now the Lady pauses for a moment and then says, as she gazes into the distance, “For the sake of the city––they should understand well how the Lady means this–– for the sake of the city the Lady wanted this obedience.”
The Site of the New Church
Now the Lady waits a long time. Then she says, while looking around herself, “Now, in the presence of these witnesses, the Lady will show you where and how the Lady of All Nations church is going to be built.”
Again the Lady says nothing for a long time. Then it is as if all of a sudden we are standing in a grassy field. Now the Lady lets me see very clearly where the new church has to be built. She points to the left and says, “Look carefully. Not over there, but there.” And now she points to the right. “I am showing it to you now. Tell it to the others later.”
Now I see the place clearly: a grassy field with trees and a teahouse, on Southern Wandelweg. Once again the Lady says, “Look carefully.”
She pauses, and then continues, “They will have difficulties. It is a large piece of land, later to be surrounded by a fair-sized part of town.”
Then I actually see that large piece of land surrounded by new houses and buildings. A stretch of the present-day dike is gone.
The Church Seen From the Outside
Suddenly I see a large church on the site the Lady had pointed out to me. It is a majestic church on a large square, a very extraordinary church, the likes of which we do not know; but in it one recognizes features of all different types of churches. The back side looks Eastern, and the front side is more Western. The church is built of yellowish-beige natural stone. The light green domes are very striking––a large one with a smaller one on either side. The Lady points that out to me and says, “You see three domes on this church, a large one and, on either side, a smaller one.”
The green of the domes contrasts wonderfully with the yellowish-beige color of the church walls. These walls have large windows; just beneath the domes, too, there are windows. On the large dome there is a cross.
The Front Porch
The entrance to the church is very majestic, imposing and grand. Steps lead up to the large, open front porch. This front porch has four enormous pillars on the front side, ornamented at the top and bottom. The pillars are not smooth, but as if ribbed from top to bottom. The roof over the entrance, supported by these pillars, has a protruding edge with some kind of sculpture or relief.
The Inside of the Church
Then the Lady says very solemnly, “We are now entering the house of the Lord.”
Suddenly I am with the Lady inside the church. It is a large, inviting church. All the windows are stained-glass; they are of deep, warm colors––predominantly a sort of Eastern red and blue––colors you do not find in our churches. As I walk with the Lady through the church, it occurs to me that the floor slopes slightly downward, as in an amphitheater. It is also striking that everything in the church is placed in a semicircle. Everything on and in the church is round. In the front of the church I see a raised plateau, a kind of platform of enormous dimensions. It has steps leading up to it, along the curve. The pews are also arranged in a curve. I see communion rails in front of the platform.
On the platform there are three altars, arranged in a semicircle. The Lady points at the altar in the middle and says, “In the middle the Cross, the daily Miracle, the altar of the Sacrifice of the Cross.”
At this the Lady points at a low tabernacle with a small crucifix on top of it. Then she points at the altar on the epistle side. With her hands folded, she says very solemnly and devoutly, “The altar of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.”
Now, pointing at the altar on the gospel side, she says, “On this side the altar of the Lady of All Nations. Look carefully: at the same level. It looks like one single semicircle; one large semicircle and a smaller one on either side.”
Although I see three altars, it is as if they are united as one single altar, one single semicircle, and yet three semicircles.
The Images Behind the Altars
Then the Lady says, “The altar of the Sacrifice in the middle. Behind it is the image of the Last Supper.” Now the Lady shows me clearly the images behind the three altars. Behind the central altar I see an image of the Last Supper covering nearly the entire length of the curved back wall. The Christ is a beautiful and dignified figure. In front of Him is a chalice. In his hands He is holding a Host; it is as if He were breaking the Host. Around Him are the Apostles, half-reclining at the table.
Then the Lady goes with me to the epistle side and says, “There you see the Father, seated upon the globe.”
On the back wall of the epistle side, I see an image of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. The figure representing the Father is seated upon the globe. In his right hand there is a Cross. Above all this there is a dove, which is emitting rays in all directions. The Lady says, “With the Cross in His hand, He is overshadowed by the Holy Spirit, represented in the form of a dove emitting rays in all directions.”
The Altar of the Lady – The Separate Chapel
Now the Lady points at the gospel side and says, “The altar of the Lady depicts me as I come.”
I see an image of the Lady of All Nations standing on the globe, with the Cross behind her and sheep around the globe. All three images are sculpted in a type of dark brown wood, the image of the Lady, too. This surprises me greatly. The Lady seems to notice this. She smiles and says, “You do not see the present-day image.”
She means the painting. Then she signals me to follow her. We go to the back, on the gospel side. In the back of the church, a little more to the side, I see the painting of the Lady, hanging in a small chapel. The Lady smiles and says, “There, a little more to the side, is the painting, separate in a separate chapel. The Lord Jesus Christ willed it so.”
When we are outside of the chapel again, the Lady says, “Furthermore, I would like to tell you that the Lady tested you.” All of a sudden she makes the Sign of the Cross on her lips with her thumb and says, “Do not repeat what I am going to say now.”
Then she says, “Tell the Sacrista of the Holy Father to pass on the following: celibacy is still the great strength of the Church. There are people who want this to be changed. Only in great exceptions. Say this. He will understand me. The dogma of Coredemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate has to be proclaimed before 1960.”
The Image in Public
Then the Lady says, “She will not come to the place where the church will be. Ask that the image may again be placed in public.” Now I see in a flash the chapel in St. Thomas Church. “Later it will be transferred to the house of the Lord Jesus Christ.”
Then I again see the Lady’s church which will have to be built in the future. The Lady waits a moment and then says, “Now I was speaking for all nations, too. Say this. When the image is brought back, the Lady will give her blessing.”
The Miracle of Cana
Now the Lady waits a moment before continuing, “I still have an answer to give. By the will of the Lord Jesus Christ, the Lady of All Nations spoke and speaks where He is present.”
Again the Lady waits a moment, and then says, “For was it not the Lord Jesus Christ Himself who waited with His great miracle”––and now the Lady says quietly and with emphasis––“of changing water into wine, until his Mother had spoken? He intended to work His miracle, but waited until His Mother spoke. Do you understand this? This is my reply today for those who could not understand that the Lady, on May 31, 1955, appeared in St. Thomas Church.”
Again the Lady pauses for a moment. She looks very sadly at the people who came to visit us after adoration, and says, “The Lady says this for those poor, mistaken people, too. This thought shall help them to understand the relationship of the Lady with their Lord. Pass everything on well.”
Now the Lady sadly looks before herself and says, “I had wanted to bring a serious and joyous message. Ask that the image be brought back into public.”
