Thanksgiving for Our Lady

Thanksgiving for Our Lady

Today in the United States we celebrate the feast of Thanksgiving to God. At Caritas we look back 25 years ago…

November 28, 2013 A.D.


Today in the United States, we celebrate the feast of Thanksgiving. All across the country, families are preparing their special meals, often driving long distances to be near loved ones, family, and friends. At Caritas, we do not need to drive far to be near those we love, for Our Lady has risen up here a special place, where we sinners can be blessed beyond anything that could ever be paid back in the beauty of the gift of the life Our Lady has given. Today, we look back to Thanksgiving Day 25 years ago, when Our Lady first appeared in the Field of Apparitions. Our Lady said on that Thanksgiving Day:


November 24, 1988

“I invite you to live my messages. I am here to help you! I will intercede for you to God for all your intentions.”

How much She has blessed our founder, his family and the Caritas Community since that time 25 years ago. Our Lady has been true to Her word, in that She has been here to help us, more times than we can count. Our founder, and the Caritas Community could not even begin to tell of the times that Our Lady has come to our rescue when we needed it most in our mission. Today we thank God for sending Our Lady to us, and for being here to help us.


The Field of Apparitions

A picture of the Field of Apparitions this morning, shortly after 6 AM. This morning was a very cold and frosty morning as the founder and the heads of the households, along with the single consecrated, gathered silently for our daily 5 AM prayer. To the left, the Cross on Penitentiary mountain is just becoming visible in the morning light. To the right, Mary’s Tree, the lone pine that stands in the Field of Apparitions. We reflect: the Cross – Jesus. The Tree, the Creator – the Father. The Holy Spirit in His love between them, fully possesed by His spouse, Our Lady – the only created being to dwell in the midst of the Trinity. The Trinity present here in a visible way. Our Lady points the way for us with Her hands extended beween the Son and the Father telling us, this is your God, your All.

“Dear children! I call all of you to prayer. Open the doors of your heart profoundly to prayer, little children, to prayer with the heart; and then the Most High will be able to act upon your freedom and conversion will begin. Your faith will become firm so that you will be able to say with all your heart: ‘My God, my all.’ You will comprehend, little children, that here on earth everything is passing. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
