Tomorrow, October 7th, is the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary. Many know about the Church approved apparitions of the Blessed Mother at Fatima in 1917. (If you don’t you should!) But most have not ever heard of the Church approved apparitions at Akita, Japan in the 1970’s, maybe because the message of prayer and repentance is similar.
In honor of Our Lady of the Rosary, I post here the book (with Imprimatur from the bishop) that details the apparitions. It is a free .pdf that you can download to your computer, or read on your iPad/Kindle. It details the weeping statue, the visionary’s healing from deafness, and explains the message.
The visionary Sr. Agnes Sasagawa, is 89 and still alive. Last year, in October she received a new message from Our Lady, urgently asking for prayer of the Rosary and penance. The book is on the website of the late John Haffert, the prolific author and founder of the Blue Army, which still promotes the important message of Fatima. I had the privilege of meeting him many years ago, and he was a most lovely, gracious, and humble man. I found this book fascinating and couldn’t put it down.
