OF GUADALUPE IN OUR CRUCIAL CENTURY
The image of Our Lady of Guadalupe in
is exactly the same as the original image exhibited in the Basilica
of Guadalupe in Mexico City, except the several new images
miraculously emerged when this photo was taken at the Grotto: The
National Sanctuary of
Our Sorrowful Mother in Portland on 8/15/1991. Archbishop
Alexander K. Sample of the Archdiocese of Portland in Oregon announced in
his letter of July 3, 2014:
photograph could inspire greater faith and
devotion to the Most Holy Mother of God”.

EXCERPTS OF OUR LADY’S MESSAGES
received by Kenneth Staloch
(1990 -1992) and submitted to the Cardinals and Bishops in Mexico
*The special purpose I came to fulfill
started over 460 years ago. From
formerly worshipping the serpent-god, millions converted to the Catholic
Church instituted by my Divine Son, Jesus Christ and the terrible
practice of human sacrifice ended.
*I will help you stop all abortions.
There will be no exceptions. Together we will bring about a new era of
protecting all human life, that
is, each person, from conception to natural death.
*I want millions to see my image, the
Woman Clothed with the Sun. I will melt their hearts to
conversion. Through my
Immaculate Heart, I will lead them to the Sacred Heart of my Son.
Cardinals and Bishops in Mexico read Our Lady’s messages and donated the
Missionary Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe to the Catholic Church in the
U.S.A. Juan Jesus Cardinal
Posadas Ocampo of Guadalajara said in his letter on June 14, 1991:
Catholic people of Mexico and I pray to God that the paths
of the Journey of the Missionary Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe
throughout the United States of America, become rays of Our Lady’s
love, care, protection and help for all of her children, particularly
the unborn. May she convert millions of hearts to the Sacred Heart of
her Son Jesus and His holy Church through her Immaculate Heart.”
following is excerpted from the book: “The
Marian Movement of Priests”
Our Lady (on December 31, 1997):
“This century of yours, which is about
to end, has been placed under the sign of a strong power conceded to my
Adversary. Thus, humanity has been led astray by the error of
theoretical and practical atheism; in the place of God, idols have been
built which everyone adores: pleasure, money, amusement, power, pride
and impurity. Truly Satan,
with the cup of lust, has succeeded in seducing all the nations of the
earth. He has replaced love with hatred; communion with division;
justice with many injustices; peace with continuous war. In fact
this entire century has been spent under the sign of cruel and bloody
wars, which have claimed millions of innocent victims. So then, the Most
Holy Trinity has decreed that your century be placed under
the sign of my powerful, maternal and
extraordinary presence. Thus,
at Fatima I pointed out the way along which humanity must journey for
its return to the Lord: that of conversion, prayer and penance.
And as a safe refuge, I offered you my Immaculate Heart.”
Missionary Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe donated by the Mexican Catholic
Church to the U.S.A. began journeying in April 1991and visited more than
1,000 parishes, many schools, hospitals, and jails in the country and also
visited Russia, China, and more.
August 1, 1991, the Missionary Image arrived at the International Airport
in Portland, Oregon, and began visiting the churches in the State.
On the last day in Portland, which was August 15, the Solemnity of
Our Lady’s Assumption, the Image was exhibited in the chapel of the National Sanctuary of Our Sorrowful Mother.
The chapel was overfilled with the faithful eager to see the
Missionary Image of Our Lady (which, of course, was not made by any humans
but by God). After the Mass,
many of the faithful surrounded the Image touching her, praying to her,
and taking photographs of her. I
also took a photograph of Our Lady, hoping to have the Image of Our Lady
of Guadalupe also in my home.
the next months and years, I was totally surprised as the new images in
the photo were
recognized as clearer and more meaningful.
These new images are the
Holy Spirit, the Holy Eucharist, Our Lady’s Immaculate
Heart, the Divine Light of God,
Our Lady kneeling and weeping for unborn
babies, and Our Lady not wearing
veil to wear the Queen’s Crown.
Also, some people in Los Angeles received the photograph and smelled heavenly
fragrance from it; others who had been harassed every night by devils were
finally released; and many individuals who had difficulties in their
families recovered peace and happiness. This, however, does not mean that
miracles occur like some magic or luck. When we have the Image of Our Lady
(the photograph taken in the Grotto on 8/15/1991), we must first accept
her as our living and true Mother and Queen as she truly is the Mother of
Jesus, our Savior and the Second Person in the Holy Trinity. Then, we must
recognize that we are sinners who always need God’s mercy and
forgiveness and become God’s beloved, humble and loyal children,
servants and citizens in the Eternal Kingdom. While we live in this world,
let’s not be like the worshippers of pleasure, money, amusement, power,
pride and impurity, but be truly faithful and lovely children and servants
of God and Our Lady and also helpers of other persons so that they may
also become faithful and lovely children and servants of God and Our Lady.
Please remember that the photograph of the Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe
is not just an ordinary photo but an extremely extraordinary and
precious living presence of Our Mother and Queen for each of us.
