The Queen of All Holy Apostles and the Queen of All Saints of the Heavenly Kingdom is the Blessed Virgin Mother Mary. The Only Sacred Shrine in Sri Lanka which has been blessed by the appearance of the Blessed Virgin Mary is ‘Our Lady of Katunayake’s Shrine’, which is well known today amongst people as the “Miraculous Shrine”. The name “Miraculous Shrine’ came into existence due to the untold miraculous favours and God’s Graces granted to the people who attended this Sacred Shrine with devotion.
The Blessed Virgin Mary is the intermediary who grants these favours and God’s Graces to us. Blessed Virgin Mother appeared in person for the first time on 5th February 1975 at this ‘Miraculous Shrine’, in front of His Holiness The Apostle Rohan Lalith Aponso, and up to the present time, Holy Mother has appeared twenty three times at this Shrine. His Holiness The Apostle Rohan Lalith Aponso had met with the Blessed Mother, twenty three times so far at this Shrine; He had received many messages from the Blessed Mother and has revealed all these messages to the people.
Out of these messages conveyed to His Holiness The Apostle Rohan Lalith Aponso by the Blessed Mother Mary, through the message conveyed during Mother Mary’s 9th appearance, She had mentioned the great desire within Her to help all the living people. First and second sentences of this message are as follows. ‘I am the Immaculate Conception. It is my desire to distribute God’s Graces through you, to those who are participating in these Liturgical Celebrations in Faith’
The Blessed Mother has declared Her desire from the depth of Her heart to grant God’s Graces not to those who participate in the Liturgical Celebrations of His Holiness The Apostle, But to those who participate in the Liturgical Celebrations of His Holiness The Apostle, in Faith, and it is amazing to see how they have been fulfilled as promised. Due to Mother Mary’s message conveyed to the people, through Her 9th appearance, the Liturgical Celebrations approved by His Holiness The Apostle are connected to the occasion to obtain solace from the Blessed Mother.
Every Saturday evening, the special “Miraculous Prayer’ which is offered to Blessed Mother Mary, has been written by His Holiness The Apostle Rohan Lalith Aponso Himself. This ‘Miraculous Prayer’ is being offered to Mother Mary, every Saturday at 6 pm.
On 13th January 2018, Saturday evening, there was a large gathering of people, coming from various parts of the country to this “Miraculous Shrine”, and from this large gathering, a group of Devotees were fortunate to get an opportunity to participate in the ‘Miraculous Prayer”, in Holy Apostles Peter & Paul garden, together with His Holiness The Apostle Rohan Lalith Aponso. These images show Devotees holding the letters above their heads with their requests to the Blessed Mother, during the ‘Miraculous Prayer’ recite
