The statue is at the home of a Lebanese family in Endeavour Hills. Their mother passed away in November 2013 and her photograph began to emanate the holy oil. The statue of our Holy Mother was bought by the family in February 2014 and then it began to emanate the oil as well.
I have visited the family’s home four times since June 19, 2014. I believe it is a genuine phenomenon because of the energy of love which is there. It is like walking through a wall of love, intangible yet strongly palpable. A cynical person would say I feel this as a projection of my own faith, but I believe it is unlikely that I could conjure up such a divine and blessed state of mind, extending on through hours, with such fineness and subtlety as I have never before experienced, simply from my own wishful imagination. I acknowledge that there is more out there in the universe than my rational mind can understand.
I also believe this is a true phenomenon because of the genuine humility of the family. They are kind, generous, careful and are offering service. When the sisters and cousins chant the Hail Mary at 7 pm, it is so beautiful. Such devotion cannot be feigned. They are tireless in caring for the people waiting in chairs outside. Some of these are in mystical states of prayer and the family takes care of them
You receive a small plastic bag containing a cotton ball soaked in the chrism oil. It has a wonderful lightness and a subtle, sweet fragrance. You can sit in front of the statue and simply gaze upon her. The air seems to be filled with bright white and golden light. The family will give you a cushion and you can pray. There are some who come with doubts and cameras, but this does not matter. Come as you are. Originally in some weeks 3000 people came. Now there are approximately 20 – 50 there at any one time. You ignore the hubbub and focus on Her divine presence and your mind becomes still. At times the Hail Mary arises spontaneously from within. I felt so uplifted, radiant, happy and energised. Different prayers arose in her presence and wisdom and insight were given on each situation.
I felt she was saying to me,
“My child, cease your afflictions, for you are deeply loved. Come to me, just as you are”.
Our Lady of Guadalupe said to Juan Diago on Dec 9 or 12, 1531, as narrated by Antonio Valeriano,
“Hear me and understand well, my son the least, that nothing should frighten or grieve you. Let not your heart be disturbed. Do not fear that sickness, nor any other sickness or anguish. Am I not here, who is your Mother? Are you not under my protection? Am I not your health? Are you not happily within my fold? What else do you wish? Do not grieve nor be disturbed by anything.”
Hail, Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with Thee.
Blessed art Thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of Thy womb, Yesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, Holy Mary, Mary, Mary,
Pray for us now, and at the hour of our death.
