BLURB FROM AMAZON PRIME

An exclusive documentary investigation into one of the most fascinating and controversial mysteries of Christianity.

RATING: 5 Charley’s.
How does such a sacred shrine from the mid-east relocate to Italy? More puzzling still, how does the shrine not only make that trip, but how does it manage to appear in 5 different places, sometimes appearing and disappearing overnight? Then, when it arrives at its final destination, Loreto Italy, it appears on and blocks a main road?

A magnificent Basilica, second only to Saint Peter’s in Rome, now surrounds and protects the House of Mary. The interior shots of the marble statues and paintings in the Basilica are breath taking. Plus here’s an interesting bit of trivia. Did you know that Ostrich eggs were revered objects? They were used in shrine and church decorations going all the way back to the time of Christ.

So many questions still remain regarding this mystery. The most important ones are of course, did the Crusaders accomplish such a series of moves?
CRUSADERS
If the Crusaders are responsible, how did they manage to
quickly break down the Holy House, move it, and then reconstruct 5 times without being detected? It would have required a small army to accomplish this.

Or was it indeed, as the ancient carved stone tablets reveal, an army of Angels that dutifully performed these miracles?
Watch the video and decide for yourself.

GUADALUPE: THE MIRACLE AND THE MESSAGE

GUARALUPE PI
The most important event in the evangelization of the New World occurred in December, 1531. Over the course of four days, the Virgin Mary, under the title of Our Lady of Guadalupe, appeared to an indigenous convert named Juan Diego. As a result of this encounter, and the image miraculously imprinted on Juan Diego’s tilma (cloak), nine million Native Americans embraced the Catholic faith, and the Americas began its transformation into “the Catholic hemisphere.”

THE MIRACLE AND THE MESSAGE

Our Lady of Guadalupe’s message of love had replaced the institutionalized violence of the Aztec culture and built a bridge between two worlds. Guadalupe: The Miracle and the Message, narrated by the legendary Plácido Domingo, traces the history of this transformative event from the 16th century to the present.

Featuring interviews with leading theologians, historians and experts on the scientific inquiries into the miraculous image-this gripping film explores both the inexplicable mysteries behind the image, and the continued relevance of the Guadalupe apparition to the modern world.
Amazon Prime’s Blurb.

IT’S RATING: 5 Charley’s
What other kind of rating can you give a miracle? Particularly fascinating is the in-depth research conducted on the eyes of the image.  The “painted” eyes have reflections of people in them in them as if created by a reflection.

OTHER VIDEO TITLES FOR MARIAN APPARITION BINGE WATCHING:
I like to see as many documentaries on the same subject as possible. But it’s always good to compare the different approaches and learn the original sources each documentary film maker uses regarding the subject at hand. You’ll learn something new and different in each one you watch.

All of the following are available on AMAZON PRIME.
Again they are all FREE if you are a member.
– Guadalupe – A living Image
– Fatima – A Message of Hope
– Strange Occurrences in a Small Irish Village
I had never stumbled across this particular Blessed Virgin  Mary (BVM) apparition. It took place in the Village of Knock in County Cork Ireland on August 21, 1879. The video is very interesting and concentrates more on the Shine and the town then the actual occurrence itself. But what is extremely important is that some of the decedents from the original witnesses are still alive. Those interviews are amazing.
