Our Miraculous Lady of the Roses
in San Damiano
in her Little Garden of Heaven
until the End of the World
In San Damiano, a small town in northern Italy, the Blessed Virgin appeared to Mamma Rosa (Rosa Quattrini) for the first time on 16 October 1964 to call the world to prayer and penance, and to deliver a series of messages.
Since that day, visitors from all over the world have continued to flock to San Damiano to pray in the presence of Our Miraculous Lady of the Roses, who has promised to keep coming to this place « alive and real », until the end of the world.
In this small garden of Paradise, pilgrims experience a deep sense of peace, and receive grace and consolation.
“I HAVE COME DOWN AMONG YOU TO SAVE YOU, MY LITTLE ONES TO SAVE YOU, BECAUSE A MOTHER DOES EVERYTHING FOR HER CHILDREN. I AM THE QUEEN OF THE HEAVENS AND THE MOTHER OF THE UNIVERSE: I HAVE COME AMONG YOU TO WEEP WITH YOU, TO LOVE YOU SO VERY MUCH, TO CONSOLE YOU, TO ASSIST YOU IN EVERYTHING AND WITH EVERYTHING. LISTEN TO ME, CHILDREN, ACCEPT MY INVITATION! IF YOU ACCEPT MY INVITATION, YOU WILL BE SAVED.”
