1st Encounter. 22nd August 1955. Feast of The Immaculate Heart of Mary.
Shortly after Holy Communion, Mary stood before me, very close-by. Everything was seen in spirit. I was drawn into another atmosphere. Mary showed Herself in a wonderful light more beautiful than the sun. She was robed all in white, flowing veil from top to toe. Upon Her Breast rested a big host surrounded by a brilliant corona radiating life. She was a living Monstrance.
Mary stood upon the globe, hands and feet invisible. I felt like entering a cloud, drawn by Mary, away from the earth. I had my eyes closed but I saw so much light that, for several days, I was very much dazzled by the beauty and light that I had seen.
Mary said the following:
“Call Me ‘Tabernacle of The Most High’. You too are such a Tabernacle, believe it. I wish to be called upon by this title for the glory of My Son. I wish that more such Tabernacles be prepared. I mean human hearts. I wish that the altars be surrounded by praying people more frequently. Don’t be afraid. Make it know”.
“Don’t be afraid. Tell your priest.”
2nd and 3rd Encounters
In October 1955, on two separate occasions, Sister Reinolda had similar encounters.
It happened immediately after Holy Mass. It was the same figure, the same place, the same requests were repeated but the following was added:
“Make these Words known to everybody. Don’t be afraid. You are God’s tool.”
Then Christ came out of this big Host and was in union with Me.
4th Encounter 15th March 1956.
After Holy Mass, Mary stood before me ( serious). She said the following:
“My child, I know about your anxiety”
(She bent down and drew me to herself).
“You asked for a sign?”
Not for me, for the others, that they may believe. They do not believe me.
“I wish that a Shrine be erected for Me in the place where seven springs come together. There I’ll let My Graces flow in abundance. Many people shall turn to God.”
I asked ‘Where is the place?” without words She made a movement of the hand and pointed majestically upwards in a certain direction. This made me very happy and I felt a great assurance.
“Don’t be afraid. Make it known. It is My Work. I shall see you again”.
5th Encounter, 5th June 1956
later, on the Feast of The Sacred Heart of Jesus, during Benediction of The Blessed Sacrament, Sister Reinolda had another vision. No message was given but Mary revealed Herself in a simple yet profound way.
She came out of The Monstrance and approached me as a living Monstrance.
6th Encounter 15th March 1957
Mary gave the following message:
“I come to strengthen you. I make use of your nothingness. Be totally humble”.
Pausing, She drew me to Herself and said:
“I want to save the world through the Host, My Fruit. I am completely One with the Host as I was One with Jesus under the Cross… Fearful things are in store for you unless you convert.”
I asked: “We?”
“Yes, if the religious do not convert and if the world does not convert”
“Mother, just give me a sign”
“You be all Love and readiness. All people who hear and believe these, My Words, are going to receive a sign from Me. Make all these Words known.”
7th Encounter. 24th May 1957
Consolingly, Mary appeared to Sr. Reinolda 2 months later. The following words were clearly heard:
“Don’t loose heart!”
(In December 1957 when visiting Ngome, Sisiter Reinolda got a strong urge that this was the place Our Lady wanted Her Shrine erected – the place where seven springs met.)
8th Encounter. 17th April 1958
Like a command, Mary said:
“Go to your place. Hurry up, the hour is advanced. I must keep back the streams of Grace with force because you do not make any effort to help Me. I am asking for help from you, My chosen ones.”
What are we supposed to do?
“Be hosts. Prepare hosts for Me. Hosts who put themselves completely at My disposal. Only a flaming sea of hosts can drive back the hate of the godless world and retrain the angry Hand of the Father. Don’t get tired. I find consolation in revealing Myself to you. I shall never abandon you.”
Where is the place of the springs?
“On your property, on the mountain”.
With a movement of the hand Mary indicated, a second time, the very same direction.
“Don’t be afraid. Make haste to make it known?”
(On the Benedictine’s farm the classroom of the school was used as the Chapel. A picture of “Mary Tabernacle of the Most High” was painted and it hung in the classroom until a Chapel had been erected. On Pentecost Sunday 1966 a ceremony was held to open and bless the Chapel. After the eighth encounter, twelve years passed before Our Lady brought another Message.)
9th Encounter 23rd March 1970
It was the second night after a horrible appearance of the devil. I was woken from my sleep. All around me was light. Mary Tabernacle of the Most High stood beside me. She took Me into Her Arms and consoled me. She said:
“I know about your anxiety. I stand by you. I shall not abandon you”
Before she disappeared She said:
“Look to the other side.”
There stood (St.) Michael in armor and a lance in his hands. On his right stood a cherubim robed in white, his arms folded. After about two minutes they disappeared and so did the brilliant light. This was a great
consolation for me.
10th Encounter. 2nd May 1971 when visiting Ngome:
Shortly before I left I went again to the Chapel with a small group of women. A catechumen had complained that she is in trouble because she wants to believe. One of her neighbours called her names and they were
quarreling. I prayed aloud with the women and asked Mary to help this woman and to convert this troublemaker.
Suddenly I noticed that the picture was very much alive. She stepped forward and Her Face was immensely beautiful. In my excitement I shouted: “Look at Mary”. I am convinced that the women too saw Mary. I personally was so moved that I walked away silently. The same troublesome man asked the priest for pardon and since then there is peace”.
