Today was one of those blessings that are felt with the heart. Ever since I was a little girl, I have loved Mother Mary with my whole heart. She has helped me through so many painful and joy-filled times in my life.
Mother Mary is one of those Divine beings that are calling us to get to know her. So today I am going to share her with you. This particular version of Our Blessed Mother, Our Lady of the Cape is a title given to Mary the Mother of God in Cap-de-la-Madeleine, Quebec Canada. The title refers specifically to a statue of the Blessed Mother which is currently located in the old shrine.
Pope Pius X granted the venerated image its Canonical coronation in October 12, 1904 while Pope Pius X11 sent another ceremonial coronation on August 15, 1954.
Deep Marian devotion existed in Cap-de-la-Madeleine since 1694 with the institution of the Brotherhood of the Rosary under Father Paul Vachon. In 1720, he built a small church to replace an earlier wooden structure. He died in 1729 and was buried in the church. Without a resident pastor, the church fell into decline. It was in 1845 that the Bishop appointed Fr. Leandre Tourigny to be the settlement's resident priest.
In 1867, devotion to Mary was revived under Father Luc Desilets. After he had been deeply disappointed seeing a pig from a nearby farm inside the church chewing on a rosary left behind. He then vowed to consecrate himself to the Blessed Virgin and reintroduce the rosary devotion to his parishioners.
Two Miracles associated with her:
The miracle of the ice bridge and the Miracle of the eyes.
You can watch the movie BRIDGE OF ROSES to see the story of the miracle of the ice bridge. What an amazing miracle!!
Beginning on May 1, the pilgrim statue of Our Lady of the Cape, Queen of Canada, Queen of the Holy Rosary is travelling from Canada's Shrine of Notre Dame Du Cape, Trois-Rivieres, Quebec across Canada to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of the Consecration of Canada to the Immaculate heart of Mary.
We are honouring our Blessed Mother by these provisions to visit her, venerate her and promote consecration to her Immaculate Heart.
"Our Lady of the Cape, Queen of Intercessors, daughter of the Father, Mother of the Son, and spouse of the Holy Spirit, envelope our hearts with your Immaculate Heart, that your joys and sorrows, be our joys and sorrows; that your prayers and supplications be our prayers and supplications." (Living Novena to the Queen of Intercessors.)
What I know for sure is that I believe in the Power of the Divine Mother to help us in our lives. She has helped me and I am being called to bring people closer to her. That is just what I am going to do. Today I affirmed my consecration of my heart to her heart. I promise to be of service in HER HONOUR.
I want to take this moment to thank God for gifting us HIS MOTHER as our Mother. She is the Queen of Heaven.
She is a Divine Intercessor. She is the Queen of Angels. She is my Queen of my heart.
If I can be of service please reach out.
