Two Catholic Churches in India were Miraculously Saved from Terrifying Tsunamis...
Our Lady of Good Health in Vailankanni, India:
In the small town of Vailankanni, India, a ray of hope penetrated the dark and tragic events that claimed over one hundred thousand lives in southern Asia, as 2,000 pilgrims and a centuries-old shrine to Our Lady were miraculously saved from the devastation. This brings us to December 26, 2004, when the terrifying tsunami wrought destruction throughout the coastlines of southern Asia. The town of Vailankanni was not spared the destruction. However, as the waves engulfed the town, a Mass was taking place in the shrine with 2,000 pilgrims in attendance.
Although, it left the entire town in shambles, killing thousands, the deadly waters did not enter the shrine, and everyone present was spared. According to the BBC, the shrine was the only building to escape the devastation. Perhaps the most extraordinary aspect is that buildings on the same elevation, further inshore were destroyed, while those inside the shrine remained entirely dry. Basilica officials did not hesitate to call the event miraculous, an opinion shared by Sebastian Kannappilly, a businessman from neighboring Kerala state who was in the shrine during Mass. He stated: "It was a miracle that the water did not enter the church." His driver, who was waiting outside the Church, perished.
The shrine which is dedicated to Our Lady of Good Health
of Vailkanni, has an amazing and miraculous history
dating back to 1560, when a young shepherd boy was asked to fetch some milk for
his master. On the return trip, he stopped to rest at a tree near a pond.
He was awakened from his slumber by a vision of the Blessed Virgin with
the infant Jesus in her arms. She smiled at the boy and asked him for some of
his milk for the Divine Child. After the Child drank, Our Lady smiled at the boy
and the vision faded.
Returning with little milk, the boy’s master did not believe his story until the lid was taken off the milk jug and according to the official web site of the shrine, it miraculously began to run over with milk. After this, the pond where the vision took place became a popular place of worship and was known as “Our Lady’s Tank.”
St. Thomas Cathedral in Santhome, India:
The tsunami waves have subsided, but a miracle is being talked about across
Chennai. It is the story of how St Thomas’ miraculous post kept the invading
waves away, sparing the newly renovated Santhome Cathedral. The Cathedral,
the world’s second basilica built on an apostle’s tomb, has been giving shelter
to hundreds of tsunami victims ever since the waves ravaged many buildings
across the coast.
But even though the killer tsunami waves devastated the Chennai coast, Father Lawrence Raj, the parish priest of the Santhome Cathedral Basilica, says “the sea did not touch our church.” The reason? “We believe the miraculous post of St Thomas prevented the sea waters from entering the church,” says Father Raj. The church that sits at the site where St. Thomas, one of the 12 Apostles of Jesus Christ, was buried after his death in the year 72 is located a few metres from the sea. While all the buildings on either side of the church were hit by the tsunami waves, the Santhome Cathedral remained unaffected.
Local people now say it is the St Thomas’ miraculous post that has kept the sea away on December 26. According to Father Raj, the legend is that when St Thomas planted the post at the top of the steps leading to the Cathedral, he said the sea would not pass that point.
The priest saw from the terrace of church the angry sea in action, as it surged across the road and flooded the huts in front of St Thomas’ post, which is an innocuous looking log of wood, mounted on a cement pedestal.
The belief goes that a village in the Mylapore area was flooded when a huge tree trunk fell across the river. The local king brought a royal pachyderm to lug it away, but the task seemed impossible. Then, according to legend, St Thomas came along, removed the girdle from his waist and handed it to a bystander and asked him to yank the log with it. He did so and the log was moved easily. A mural in the Cathedral museum illustrates this incident. Father Raj says the current post is believed to be from that same log of wood.
Hundreds of homeless survivors who have been staying in the church ever since the tragedy hit them have prayed to St Thomas for saving them. “It is St Thomas who has saved me. This church was untouched by the waters because of the miraculous power of the St Thomas post,” said K Sebastiraj, a fisherman who sought shelter in the Santhome Cathedral.
Our Lady of
the Roses Awesome Bayside Prophecies...
These prophecies came from Jesus, Mary, and the saints to Veronica Lueken at Bayside, NY, from 1968 to 1995.
Crucifix to guard entrances to home...
Jesus - "I must reveal, My children, to the world again, that you are to keep a crucifix on your front door and your back door. All entrances to your home must be guarded by the crucifix. There has not been one home on Long Island that had a crucifix on its door that did fall to any evil. I do not speak of the trees, My child; I speak of mankind. You did not know a major disaster as has happened, My children, in Mexico. You see, My child, I set you down in that area to bring the word to mankind, and it was through these words that many listened and the passed through the horrible experience of a hurricane." (10-5-85)
Keep the sacramentals that have been given to you through the ages of your world's time...
Jesus - "I bless you, My children, and I diffuse among you the graces for conversion and cure. Keep the sacramentals that have been given to you through the ages of your world's time. They have been given for reason. Do not cast them aside, for when you do thus you will cast aside your protection against satan and his agents who are loose now in full battle upon earth." (2-10-73)
Keep your sacramentals about your necks...
Our Lady - "Keep your sacramentals about your necks. I say about your necks, not for decoration, but because many shall flee with only what they have on their bodies! It is now a supernatural protection, My children, that you have: your medals, your scapulars, and even your Rosary, your beads of prayer about your neck, your children's necks and all those who wish to be saved.
"The monuments, the statues, must be kept in your homes. As it was in the days of old, the angel of death shall pass by those who retain the monuments in their homes." (5-18-77)
