Join us for the 28th Anniversary of
Days of Prayer and MercyWe are pleased to open our doors again and welcome you back to the Center.And what a special time to get together: to remember and to celebrate the apparitionsof Our Lady of Light.
This is our 28th anniversary of those years between 1992-1999 when we wereso honored by Our Lady and her Son to witness so many extraordinary events andreceive Our Lady’s words through the messages to the Batavia Visionary. Maybe youwere also able to have been here during those incredible times with Fr. Smith as weprayed throughout the day, celebrated Mass and Holy Communion and patientlyawaited until midnight when Our Lady was expected to appear. She never disappointedus and all who spent those happy days will never forget the experiences.Everyone saw her incredible Lights pulsating everywhere, sometimes engulfing individualsas if the Holy Spirit were infusing each person with His Light.
Since those days, so many of you have returned to pray and spend this timewith Our Lady. Others have taken their ministries and moved to other areas of thecity or other states. Our Lady herself asked that we would continue to celebrate onthe very days she came to us by keeping these days, “days of prayer and mercy”. Shealso chose September 1st as a special day of mercy through her message of May 1,1997 to Fr. Leroy Smith:
“My beloved son, On the first day of September, my Special Day of Prayer, Irequest that My House remain open as a house of prayer for all to come and receivethe special graces offered there. Know that, at my request, my Son has ordained thisday, and all days of September 1 henceforth, to be a day of Divine Mercy. All whocome to Him with a true repentance of their sins will be bathed in His mercy andwill be forgiven everything. This is my gift and His promise. Though this grace isavailable everywhere, it is my desire that this grace be started at My House and thenflow to every other part of your world.”
