Reflection on the Apparition of Our Lady of Akita in Light of the Earthquake

The Transalpine Redemptorists have posted a thoughtful piece on the apparition of Mary at Akita, Japan, in light of recent events. An excerpt:

The tsunami that hit Kesennuma today
is only 125 miles by road from Akita
on the West coast of Honshu
Our Lady of Akita
appeared in 1973
to warn of calamities.

The messages emphasize
prayer and penance.

Miracles accompanied these messages.
Sister Sasagawa who received them
was instantly cured of deafness
another person was cured of brain cancer.

After thorough investigation
these Messages were approved by the Church
on 22 April 1984.

Our Lady said to Sister Sasagawa:

"Pray very much the prayers of the Rosary.
I alone am able still to save you from
the calamities which approach."
