The Mystic Rose is nothing more and nothing less than the Virgin Mary, the mother of Jesus, who is known as Maria Rosa Mystica. This she has come to have various kinds of appearances in the history of Catholicism, so in this article we will learn about her history and the prayers that are made to this Holy Mother of the Catholic Church.
Maria, Rosa Mystica
The Lord sent to be able to implant a new Marian devotion in all the different institutes, both for men and women, in religious communities and in each and every one of the priests.
It said that she promised that if they venerate her in a special way, they will particularly enjoy her protection, there will also be a flourishing of religious vocations. In addition, she indicated that she wanted the 13th day of each month to be consecrated to her as the Marian day and the 12 preceding hers to serve as preparation with special prayers.
“On that same day he will pour out an overabundance of graces and holiness on all those who would have honored him in this way. Therefore, he wishes that July 13 of each year be dedicated to him in honor of the Mystic Rose”.
“Maria Rosa Mystica” Devotion to the Rosa Mystica since the 5th Century
It can be said that the Rose has a very important meaning since ancient times, it symbolizes a great mystery, for this reason in the catacomb of San Calixto, approximately in the (third century), Christians dedicated themselves to drawing roses, which made reference to Paradise. In this sense, the famous Cipriano de Cartago describes it in a very particular way, pointing it out as a sign of martyrdom.
For many believers in the 5th century, the rose metaphorically represented the Virgin Mary. Historical background indicates that Edulio Caelio was the first person to call Mary “rose among thorns”. After this, just about 4 centuries later, the monk Theophanes Graptos uses the same simile referring to the purity of Mary and also to the fragrance of her grace.
For Tertullian and S. Ambrose the base comes to represent the genealogy of David; the bud is Mary and the flower, rose, is Christ himself. From the Middle Ages reference is made to the text of the book of Isaiah that says:
“a shoot will come out of the trunk of Jesse and a shoot will sprout from his roots”
As referring to Mary and Jesus. Also, from the book of Wisdom:
“I have grown like a palm in Engedi like a rosebush in Jericho.”
As has been observed, the veneration of the Mystic Rose dates back to the first centuries of Christianity. It can also be seen in the hymn “Akathistos Paraclisis” of the churches of the East, which becomes a kind of rosary singing, the invocation that says:
“Mary, You, Rosa Mystica, from which Christ came out like a miraculous perfume.”
It can be observed in the same way as in the Lauterana Litanies of the year 1587, in honor of the Blessed Virgin, they already brought the title of María Rosa Mystica. Since 1738, in the so-called diocese of Speyer in Germany, in the Sanctuary of Rosenberg, the miraculous image of the “Mystic Rose” was venerated.
About 3 roses are painted on the pedestal that comes to support the image:
- a white rose
- A red rose
- a golden rose
In the luminous halo that surrounds it, some 13 golden roses can be highlighted both on the right and on the left; which is what can make people think that the Virgin is honored each of July 13 as Maria Rosa Mystica; coincidence? Not rather providence.
The devotion to the Rosa Mystica is the one that receives its peak from the apparitions in Montichiari, however, as has been seen, it was already present in the life of the Church. It was Mariana The Blessed Virgin Mary, in a special way that has manifested itself to all humanity and each time with greater urgency and frequency.
The beginning of the Marian Era, as this era in which we live is known, came to have a place with the apparition of the Virgin in the year 1830 to Saint Catherine Labouré, to whom she revealed the Miraculous Medal, the apparition in which the Blessed Virgin gave the Church the great gift of 1 of the most important Marian sacramentals.
From that very moment, the Blessed Virgin has come to go from visit to visit again and again with the aim of being able to help people, to alert them and also to bring humanity to her beloved Son. In each of the presentations that came to take place for the Rosa Mystica, in the regions of:
- La Salette
It can be seen how the Virgin frequently emphasized the call to conversion, as well as to prayer and penance for all people. In the regions of Montichari, Mary Most Holy returns to take up that same urgent call for each one of her children to conversion, however, in a very particular way the message that simply consists of:
- Prayer, Penance and Sacrifice.
This becomes the mark and also the key to the message of María Rosa Mística. All those people who are devoted to her have a path to travel, a path that is marked by her Mother. It is the path of having to offer oneself for others.
The region of Montichiari, whose name means “Mount Luminous”, consists of a small city of approximately 14,000 inhabitants, located in northern Italy, 20 km from Brescia, which is the diocesan seat, which is located at the foot of the Italian Alps, in the fertile plain of the Po River, in the Lombardy region.
The Lord chooses a woman named Pierina Gilli to become that soul to whom the Blessed Virgin appears; and like everyone else who receives this particular kind of grace, Pierina’s life unfolds between roses and thorns. The appearances of the Lady can be divided into about 3 stages that we will highlight throughout this article.
The First Stage: Year 1944 and 1949
Before the apparitions of the Virgin occur, this woman named Pierina receives the grace of being visited by the Holy Foundress of the Congregation called “Servants of Charity”, it was at that very moment that Blessed Mary Crucified of the Rose, in which she had come to enter as a postulant.
At that time, she was 33 years old and was working as a nurse. She had become severely ill with meningitis. On December 17, 1944, which is the feast day of the Holy Foundress, she felt that the door was opening and she observed this same nun so she asked her:
“How are you Pierina?
To which she replied that her head really hurt. Then she told him:
“This little glass (since she had a small white glass in her hands at that time), was given to me by a Holy Lady to anoint you, so the headache you have at this moment will continue a little more… you will have to carry a naked Cross, then you will heal.”
Having said this, he made signs for him to lie on his right side, and anointed the diseased part on his back and also on his head.
A supposed “Lady” had given the little white cup to Santa María Crucificado de la Rosa with a little oil that had the great property of healing.
It can be ensured that this Lady is usually none other than the Blessed Virgin herself, who is the one who is famous for delivering that healing oil that in a very special way has become one of the marks of the presence of the Virgin in its various kinds of manifestations through its images which, exuding oil, is the same oil with which Pierina was anointed. This is known as the Healing Oil of Mary.
The presentations of what is today the Crucified Saint Mary of the Rose, will be very frequent in Pireina, always bringing her peace and strength in the many tests to which she has to be exposed due to the manifestations of the Virgin and also of her message.
November 23 to 24, 1945: First Apparition of the Virgin of the Swords
Saint Mary Crucified of the Rose appears to Pierina and it is with her that she manifests for the first time in her “Transparent” form, Dressed in a Violet Color and a White Veil that covers her head and goes down to her feet. ”.
She had her arms open in a way that it was possible to see the 3 swords that were embedded in her chest at the height of the heart. The Saint even told Pierina that that Lady was nothing more than the virgin who came to ask her for prayers, sacrifices and sufferings in order to once and for all repair the sins of the 3 categories of the consecrated soul. to God they are:
- First: For all those religious souls who betrayed their devotion.
- Second: To be able to repair the mortal sin of all these same souls.
- Third: To be able to repair the betrayal of all the priests who make themselves unworthy of their Sacred Ministry.
This has come to be a bit of history about the mystic rose .
Posts Reported by Pierina Gilli
These are a series of messages that Pierina Gilli came to report during the year 1947, among which were the following:
The Three Roses: The Weeping Virgin Said: “Prayer, Sacrifice and Penance”
The Mystic Rose came to give Pierina Gilli some 2 very important messages, the first of them about the 3 roses.
On June 1, 1947:
Pierina reports that she had a great vision of hell where she was able to observe, in about 3 different sections, about 3 categories of religious, consecrated souls and priests that came to correspond to the 3 swords of the vision and also to the 3 intentions for which they had to come to offer their prayers as well as the sacrifices.
The Crucified Holy Mary of the Rose came to appear in front of the Virgin who had the same appearance as she had come to have in her first appearance, with the 3 swords all stuck in the center of her heart.
The mystic rose tells Gilli, to tell the superior that the Virgin had to be honored in that religious institute, managing to be part of many living roses among the nuns. That there be in each of the community about 3 nuns who offer themselves as the mystical roses.
- White Rose:
The white rose is the spirit of prayer to be able to repair all the offenses that come to Our Lord by all the religious who come to betray devotion.
- Red rose:
The red rose is the spirit of sacrifice to be able to repair all the offenses that come to our Lord by all the religious who live from their own moral sin.
- Rose Yellow – Gold:
The gold or yellow rose is about the spirit of complete immolation to be able to repair all the offenses that all the Judas priests come to make to the Lord, and specifically for the sanctification of the priests.
“These 3 roses are going to be the ones that will bring down the 3 swords of the Most Holy Hearts of Jesus and also those of Mary” This type of call that is made in a very particular way to the religious, is extended to everyone who He usually listens to the voice of the Mother and at the same time wants to be a faithful devotee of her.
This is the call of the mother to the children. The call to offer for the good of others, especially that of souls consecrated to God the Father.
On July 13, 1947:
It was on this day that the first apparition of the Virgin with the 3 roses on her chest occurred. The virgin appears in a hospital, dressed in white, with a kind of cape of the same white color that came to contain some reflections of silver light.
In addition, he was wearing a white cloak that was attached to the area below the throat, as a kind of hook. This same cloak reached her feet, revealing light brown hair on her forehead. She had a gold colored embroidered trim. So she told him:
“I am the Mother of Jesus and the Mother of all of you”
So he opened his arms and instead of carrying swords he had the 3 roses: white, red and also yellow or gold. After a pause she went on to say:
“Our Lord sent me to implant a new Marian devotion in all male and female institutes, in religious communities and in all priests. I promise you that if you venerate me in this special way, you will particularly enjoy my protection, there will be a flourishing of religious vocations.”
Therefore, he requested that the 13th of each month become a day in which the Marian Day is held, which is preceded by all the special prayers of preparation by about 12 days. And besides he asked:
“This Day must be of reparation for the offenses committed against our Lord by the consecrated souls who with their faults make three sharp swords penetrate my Heart and the Heart of my Divine Son.”
That day is going to pour out an abundance of Grace and also of holiness of the vocations in the Institutes that come to honor it in this way. On the other hand, she went on to say:
“I wish that July 13 of each year be celebrated by each Institute” and “I wish that in each Congregation or Institute there are souls who live with a great spirit of prayer, so that no vocation is betrayed.”
At that very moment it seemed that the white rose that she was carrying on her chest stood out more in order to show this kind of meaning of the glow of the mystic rose . And he kept talking:
“I also wish that there are other souls who live by generosity and love of sacrifice, trials, humiliations, to repair the offenses that Our Lord receives from consecrated souls who live in mortal sin.”
It is when the red rose was the one that stood out much more. And he goes on to say:
“I also wish that other souls totally immolate their lives to repair the betrayals that Our Lord receives from the Judas Priests.”
At this moment is when the last rose, the yellow-gold, came to stand out from all. So almost ending says:
“The Immolation of these souls will obtain from my maternal Heart the sanctification of these ministers of God and abundance of graces on their congregations.”
It was at that very moment that the Virgin was a bit silent. Then, with a smile of satisfaction and also with a look towards Blessed Sister Maria Crucified, she told him the following:
“I have chosen this Institute first, because its founder is “De la Rosa”, the one who has instilled in her Daughters the spirit of charity.”
It is here at this moment when he smiled with joy and said:
“This is why I appear surrounded by a rosebush.”
Therefore, the Lord chose this type of Institute first because of the charism of its Foundress, the love that abounds above all things. Many of the faithful of this institute come to pray to Maria Rosa Mistica for the sick.
Pierina asked for a miracle and the Virgin told her
“I’m not going to do any kind of external miracle. The most obvious miracle is going to happen when these consecrated souls who for a long time, and especially during the war period, have become so relaxed in spirit almost to the point of being able to betray their vocation and thus attract with their severe blame, punishments and persecutions, as is currently the case against the Church.
They will cease seriously offending Our Lord and will revive the primitive spirit of the Holy Founders.
The Precursor of the Second Vatican Council: This last sentence reads as follows:
“they will revive the primitive spirit of the Holy Founders”.
It is what reminds many of the same words with which the Church, in the Second Vatican Council, addressed the religious in its document entitled “Perectae caritatis”.
On the other hand, the Virgin in a special way came to manifest as the Mother of the Church, a title that time later, the papal authority of that time, Pope Palo VI, gave to the Virgin at the end of the third session of the Council on November 21, 1964, when he came to declare the following:
“Thus, for the glory of the Virgin and our consolation, We proclaim Ourselves to Mary Most Holy, Mother of the Church, that is to say, Mare of all the People of God, both the faithful and the shepherds who call her loving Mother and we want her to from now on be honored and invoked by all the Christian people with this most pleasing title”.
For these reasons it is possible to say that this apparition of the Lady is what prepared the way for the Council.
His presentation on October 22, 1947, in the chapel of the Montichiari hospital, during the celebration of the Eucharist with the presence of the doctors, all the employees and the residents of that place, became very witness his appearance. Everyone became aware of a kind of extraordinary presence, however, only Pierina was the only person who could see it and also hear it.
María, Rosa Mystica, asked him to practice the devotion that she had already come to recommend and also stressed the following:
“My divine son, tired by the incessant offenses, wanted to discharge his justice, but I intervened as a mediator between Him and men, interceding especially for consecrated souls.”
Pierina, considered as the seer, thanked her in the name of all who were in that place and she said goodbye recommending him at all times with majesty and tenderness:
“Live on love…, love for your neighbor!”
This type of call to Pierina, to come to live with love, is the only call that the Virgin makes to all those who are her devotees, a love that reaches even sacrifice and immolation.
First Apparition in the Cathedral of Montichiari: November 16, 1947
The virgin tells Pierina the following:
“Our Lord, My divine Son Jesus, is tired of receiving great offenses from men for sins against purity. He wanted to send a deluge of punishments. I have intervened so that he may still have Mercy, for which I ask for prayer and penance in reparation for these sins.”
“If you are generous you will obtain greater Graces for everyone.”
So the Virgin constantly comes to direct Pierina to be able to take her to more, and in this way, this kind of invitation has also been heard from many people that comes from her heart.
So again the virgin comes to ask for generosity. The generous soul does not come to think of its own good but rather of the good of other people and for this same reason it is very capable of the greatest sacrifices because it never looks at itself, nor does it come to seek your own well-being. Therefore, she only requires a great generosity of heart to respond to the call that the Virgin makes to all of us.
Second Apparition in the Cathedral of Montichiari: November 22, 1947
In her second appearance, the virgin comes to give the following message:
“I descend in this place because here they will make great conversions.”
Later, with his face full of deep sadness, he highlighted:
“At this time the Christians of your Italian nation are the ones who most offend Our Lord, my Divine Son, with sins against holy purity. That is why the Lord asks you for prayer and generosity in the sacrifices”.
What must be done in order to fulfill the order of prayer and also penance? He sweetly replied:
After several minutes continue with:
“Penance, that is, accept daily all the little crosses, even work as a sign of penance.”
“On December 8, at noon, I will come here again to the Parish, it will be the Hour of Grace.”
So then he launches a kind of very intense beam of light and said:
“Let the word of my coming spread”
Now many will wonder: What does the hour of grace mean?
“The Hour of Grace will be an event of great and numerous conversions, souls totally hardened in evil and cold as marble, touched by divine grace will once again be lovers and faithful to God”… this is what I would say personally to the Monsignor the Bishop of Brescia.” How to prepare? the Virgin told Pierina:
“Prayer and penance. May the Miserere Psalm be prayed three times each day with open arms.”
Third Apparition in the Cathedral of Montichiari: December 7, 1947
On December 7, 1947, in the Montichiari Cathedral, the Virgin appeared to Pierina with an open white mantle, and it was held up on each side with the help of a child and a girl, the boy was dressed in white clothes, the girl also with her forehead and head girded with a white ribbon, with her abundant hair thrown on her back, giving a greater enhancement to her angelic beauty as a girl.
The virgin tells Pierina the following:
“However, much prayer and generosity in sacrifice is still required on your part. Tomorrow I will come at noon and I will let you see a very small part of Paradise… However, I want from you the sacrifice of having your eyes closed so that you join the other souls who live only by faith. Also tomorrow I will let My Immaculate Heart be seen, which is very little known by men.
At Fatima I spread the devotion of the consecration to my Heart. In the regions of Bonate I wanted to make him enter the Christian family. Instead, here in the areas of Montichiari, I wish the devotion already indicated the “Mystic Rose”, which is linked to the devotion to my Heart, be the same deepened in the religious Institutes so that the religious souls manage to attract an abundant Grace of my maternal Heart over them.
With this apparition for the sanctification of all religious souls, I finally close the cycle of apparitions with you.”
The Virgin remained totally silent… Pierina asked her about the children who accompanied her and the Virgin replied:
“They are Jacinta and Francisco, they are also going to be your companions in every tribulation. They too have come to suffer, even though they are smaller than you.”
His relationship with Fatima:
There is a certain very intimate relationship between the apparition and the messages of Our Lady at Fatima and also her message in the Montichiari regions. Above all, however, the Virgin is the one who makes a very close connection between the apparitions and her message through the novena to the mystical rose . So we can say the following:
- First: Reveal her Immaculate Heart, as she did in the regions of Fatima.
- Second: He speaks, very explicitly, of the areas of Fatima and also of his desire that together with the devotion to the Mystic Rose all the religious institutes manage to have the devotion to her Immaculate Heart.
- Third: He appears in the company of the 2 blessed Jacinta and Francisco, who are the seers of Fatima, and he comes to propose them to Pierina, as models and also examples of sacrifice.
- Fourth: On the other hand, in her third apparition in the regions of Fontanelle she asks for reparation to be made (which is the same central message of Fatima), asking for the Union of the entire Communion of Reparation, which must be done every year. October 13 of each year.
Fourth and Last Apparition in the Cathedral of Montichiari: December 8, 1947
The fourth apparition of the Rosa Mystica was at the feast of the Immaculate Conception. The virgin appears dressed in white, all splendid, with her hands together, on top of a very large staircase, adorned with a large number of roses. Pierina looked at her mother when she says:
“I am the Immaculate Conception!”
With great majesty he also affirmed:
“I am María de la Gracia, that is, the full of Grace, Mother of my Divine Son Jesus Christ”.
So then he went down the stairs slightly and added:
“By my coming to Montichiari I wish to be invoked and venerated as Rosa Mystica.”
In addition, he added the following:
“I want that at noon of every December 8 (Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception) the hour of grace is celebrated throughout the world, through this devotion many graces will be achieved for the soul and body. Our Lord, my Divine Son Jesus, grants him the greatest mercy, so that the good continue to always pray for his sinful brothers.”
“It is necessary to inform the Supreme Pastor of the Catholic Church, who is Pope Pius XII, of my great desire that at this hour of grace it be known and spread throughout the world as soon as possible. Who cannot go to church because he can go to his house at noon and will get my graces in the same way. ”
He then proceeds to show her his pure heart by exclaiming:
“Look at this heart that loves men so much, while the vast majority of them fill it with vituperations.”
Then he was silent for a few seconds and continued saying:
“If all, good and bad, unite in prayer, they will obtain mercy and peace from this heart. The good ones have just reached through my mediation the mercy of the Lord, who withheld a great punishment. Soon the efficacious greatness of this hour of grace will be known.”
The words of the Virgin where she says:
“Look at this heart that loves men so much, while most of them fill it with vituperations.”
It is the one that many of the scholars remember as the call of the Heart of Jesus to Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque when He himself complained to her with very similar words about ingratitude, coldness and also the contempt that He receives from men. .
Noticing that the resplendent Lady was going to move away from her presence, Pierina implored her with strong conviction:
“Oh beautiful and beloved Mother of God, I thank you! Bless the whole world especially the Holy Father, the priests, religious and sinners”.
So she simply pleased him with her pleasant voice:
“I have prepared an overabundance of grace for all those children who listen to my voice and take my wishes to heart.”
With these words, Pierina’s vision ended.
Long Waiting Period
After her appearances in the Cathedral, Pierina stayed for about 19 years with the Franciscan Nuns of the Lily in the areas of Brescia, serving as a nurse. The illnesses that attacked her became diverse.
Pierina was not to become a nun, but simply to live in the convent in perfect obedience, always following the advice of the spiritual father of the seminary. During this time, she came to have the consolation and advice of St. Mary Crucified of the Rose, who was the one who frequently appeared to her on various occasions.
The Second Stage: Year 1960 and 1966
After about 3 years, the virgin appears to Pierina again on April 5, 1960. The virgin appears to her in the same way as in 1947. She returned to indicate to Pierina that the time had not yet come. to be able to reveal the secret that she had revealed to him, and also told him the following:
“The time has not yet come. I’ll come myself to warn you; for now she prays, she also invites to pray, repair and give me many sacrifices so that men may convert. ”
After this visitation, he appeared again on December 6, 1961 and also on April 27, 1965, at the beginning and end of the work of the Second Vatican Council, with the same kind of vision both times. agreement is reported by Pierina:
“I saw in his right hand a ball of pale pink light, the tip was directed upwards and inside it looked like many joined hands, while in his left he had another ball of white light and inside it looked like a church, whose bell tower formed the same point, and above the word Peace stood out ”
The explanation of this same vision was not given to Pierina until the 2nd time that the Virgin appeared: the 2 balls become the symbol of the Ecumenical Council that comes to answer the prayer of the whole world for world peace and the unity of all.
Appearances at Fontanelle: 1966
The apparitions at Fontanelle began on February 27, 1966. Our Lady even told Pierina that on April 12, 14 and 16, after Easter, she had to go on a pilgrimage of penance from the Church to Fontanelle. This place called Fontanelle is a Montichiari field where there is a kind of hidden water source in a cave. An old stone grandstand with about 10 steps which give access to the cave. The Virgin also told him the following:
“On the 2nd Sunday of Easter, which corresponds to April 17, my Divine Son Jesus Christ has sent me once again to earth, to the areas of Montichiari, in order to bring copious Graces to humanity. From that Sunday onwards, the sick must be taken at all times and you will first offer them a glass of water and also wash their sores.
This is going to be your new mission of action and apostolate, you are not going to be hidden anymore, you are not going to be more withdrawn. On the Second Sunday of Easter, as soon as I have arrived, the water will be converted into a kind of Source of purification and Grace”.
Relationship of the Mystic Rose with Divine Mercy
There is a relationship between the Mystic Rose and Divine Mercy. It can be seen how, in the Lady’s messages, she frequently mentions her intervention so that the Lord may be the one to pour out his mercy on all men in the entire world. The apparition in the Fontanelle region on April 17, 1966 becomes very illuminating in this regard.
The Virgin came to host the second Sunday after Easter and, as is well known, Jesus asked Saint Mary Faustina to establish the Feast of Divine Mercy on the 2nd Sunday of Easter. This means that María Rosa Mística appeared on Divine Mercy Sunday to do what? It is what many will ask.
The answer is that he did it to bless a fountain that was going to become from that precise moment a “Fountain of Grace”. The Merciful Heart of Jesus consists of the source from which the Water and also the Blood sprout, which is what gives us the grace of salvation and redemption.
The Lord, through the Most Holy Virgin, comes to bless this well-known source so that through it it may be poured out on all men as well as the graces of his redemption and his love.
Pierina was praying the rosary walking along the road, a short distance from the grotto. Around noon, the seer descended from her back and at the same time kneeling from her and the Virgin followed her and pointed with her left hand to the precise point where the work should be placed. She saying the following:
“May the sick and all my children ask my divine Son for forgiveness first and foremost. Kiss the cross with much love and then draw water from the fountain and drink”.
The heavenly lady approached the fountain and proceeded to order Pierina: “Get mud on your hands and then wash. This should show you how it is that sin is mud and dirt in the hearts of all my children, however, if they bathe with the water of grace, the souls will be purified and once again they will be worthy of the friendship of God”.
So he leaned over, touched the fountain with his hands in about 2 places and went on to say the following:
“It is necessary that all my children know the wishes of my Son Jesus, communicated in 1947 and the messages that I gave in the Church of Montichiari. I wish that the sick and all my children go to this miraculous source. Your mission is in this place in the midst of the sick and those who need your help.
This came to be a conversation the Mystic Rose had with Pierina in her first appearance through a vision this woman had who later became known as the seer Pierina.
The Mother of God Repeated: “I wish that the Sick and all my children, come here to the Fountain of Grace”
On May 13, 1966, the second apparition occurs in the Fontanelle region. The Virgin came to choose the anniversary of the apparitions in Fatima to be able to manifest herself again to the seer named Pierina Gilli next to the fountain, at about 11:40 am. About 20 people had gathered at the scene. Here is the conversation that ensued:
The Mother of God began the conversation by saying: “Let the word of my coming to the Source spread!”
Pierina asked him: “How can I do it if they don’t believe me and prevent me from acting?”
Our Lady replies: “This is your mission, which I already asked for”.
The seer replies: “Oh beloved Mother of God, without a miracle of yours that confirms my words, the ecclesiastical authorities will not give me faith. I ask you to perform a miracle.”
Without responding to the request, the Virgin simply smiled maternally and continued saying:
“My divine Son is all love, but the world is going to ruin. I have once again obtained mercy and I come to Montichiari to bring the graces of his love, but to save humanity, prayer, sacrifice and penance are needed”.
Having said this, he pointed to the fountain to the right and said:
“I want a comfortable bath to be built here, fed by this water, where the sick can be immersed.”
And showing to the left, he ordered the following:
“This other part of the fountain must be reserved for drinking.”
Pierina asked her what name she should take to the fountain and the Mystic Rose replied:
“Let it be called the fountain of Grace.”
“I have come to bring love, mercy, peace to the souls of my children and I recommend that you do not throw mud at charity.”
Pierina asked her the meaning of her cloak and Ella replied:
“It means my Love that embraces all humanity.”
On June 9, 1966: It is when the 3rd apparition occurs in the Fontanelle region in the “Corpus Christi Festival”, where the mystical rose says the following:
“Today, my Divine Son Jesus Christ has sent me again. Today is the Feast of the Body of the Lord. Union Party! Love Party! How much I would like this grain to be transformed into Eucharistic Bread…, in so many Communions of Reparation. I would like this grain, transformed into so many particles, to reach Rome and by October 13 it reaches Fatima.”
“I want a shed to be built with an image that casts its gaze on the Fountain” “I want the image to be brought here in procession on October 13; but first I wish that the town of Montichiari consecrate itself to my Heart”.
On August 8, 1966: It is when the 4th apparition occurs in the Fontanelle region. During the “Feast of the Transfiguration” where the saint says the following:
“My Son has sent me again to request the union of Communion of Reparation and that this be for October 13. May the news of this holy initiative spread throughout the world, which must begin this year for the first time and be repeated every year”.
“Let it be a matter of sending this grain to the beloved son Pope Paul and let it be said that he has been blessed with my visit. It is grain from your land of Brescia and let it be said what my Divine Son Jesus Christ wishes, and also for Fatima.”
“With the grain that remains, small rolls are made and on a fixed day they are distributed here at the Fountain as a reminder of my coming. And this is in gratitude to the children who work the land”.
“After I was Assumed into Heaven, I have always put myself in the middle as a mediator between my Divine Son Jesus Christ and all humanity! How many favors! How many punishments have I had! How many talks have I had with souls! How many more visits have I made to earth to bring messages!”
“However, men still continue to offend the Lord! This is why my desire for the world union of the Holy Communion of Reparation!” “It is an act of love and recognition on the part of the children towards the Lord”
Third Stage: 1969
On May 15, 1969, at the Obedience Feast of the Ascension. The mystical rose tells the seer:
“Obedience becomes synonymous with peace that comes from the Lord. On the contrary, it is only discord and also the ruin of souls!”
“Therefore, we must imitate the example that the Divine Son Jesus Christ has given us first: who humbled himself and became obedient until the death of the Cross. Daughter, obedience is humility, on various occasions it is sacrifice, however, God Our Lord knows how to give the soul peace and docility afterwards, which is His true love!”
On January 17, 1971: It is when the mystic rose tells Pierina about the Holy Rosary “Tell my children to pray the Holy Rosary of tears and blood …, which consists of the ring of Faith and light and also in the bond of union, of glory, of intercession.”
Life of Pierina Gilli (1911 + 1991)
Pierina Gilli was born in the town of San Jorge, located in the Montichiari region, located in Italy, specifically in the Brescia region, on August 3, 1911. Her father, named Pancracio Gilli, was a peasant man and her mother , named Rosa Bartoli, was the one who raised her 9 children in poverty and in the fear of God. Pierina even wrote in her personal diary the following:
“I was the first among the 9 children of my parents, to get to enjoy joy, also happiness, and all the love of my parents. August 3 became the dawn of my earthly life and I was baptized on August 5, on the feast of Our Lady of the Snows, so it was an occasion when my mother I would consecrate the Mother of Heaven so that with her help and her tender protection I could keep my life white and pure as snow”.
Pierina’s infancy or childhood did not have any type of event that was extraordinary. The first great suffering that he had in his life was the one that occurred at the age of 7 when his father, who, as a soldier, was taken prisoner during World War I, but returned home with his health totally shaken, for later, in a very short time, he dies in a hospital in the area.
Pierina came to live from 1918 to 1922 in the orphanage of the Servants of Charity, where, at the age of 8, she received her first communion. At the age of 11, already in the 4th grade of elementary school, she had to return home to live with her mother who had gotten married, that is, she had remarried and had new siblings. which required the care of his older sister.
When Pierina is already 12 years old, poverty is what forces her family to have to move to a little shack, dividing the family with another. It was at this same time that she first felt what is known as the call to religious life.
At the age of 16, she went to work in an establishment, through which she went through various crises where she was dominated by vanities, and which came to be helped by the strong advice of the father confessor, which made her manage to overcome all those crises and He made the decision to be totally of God.
At the age of 18, she went to work at the Asilo Comunal as part of a children’s assistant. A good young man came to propose marriage to her, however, she felt that marriage was not her vocation, since she only felt that the Lord wanted her only for himself.
At the age of 20, it was when she confirmed her vocation, entering the convent of the sisters “Siervas de la Caridad”. However, in that place he came to suffer from pleurisy, which prevented him from being a postulant, so he had to leave the convent. She later found work in the town of Carpenédolo as caretaker of the services of the parish house of Fr. José Brochini, where she stayed until she was 26 years old.
She came to spend about 2 years as an employee in Brescia, at the Villa Blanca Health House. When she was 29 years old, she began to work at the Civil Hospital of Desenzano del Garda, under the care of the Servants of Charity, where she remained for about 4 years with great tranquility.
At the age of 32, in the month of April 1944, she entered again as a postulant in the convent of the sisters “Siervas de la Caridad”. With 33 years of age, in the month of December of the year 1944, exactly 7 months after having entered the convent, he begins to turn with a very severe ailment.
This time it was meningitis. This is when the first phase of the apparitions begins, which will go from the year 1944 to the year 1949. In this same period of the apparitions, the Virgin comes to tell Pierina: “She lives with love.”
This is the mission that comes to be entrusted to him, to live from love and for love. The subsequent years became years of great provocations and much suffering. It is a long period of waiting from the year 1949 to the year 1960, that is to say 11 years of time.
On August 8, 1951, she was received by His Holiness, the so-called Pope Pius XII. In the course of the year 1960, the second period of the apparitions began, which went from the year 1960 to the year 1966. In the course of the same year, 1966, Pierina visited the Fontanelle region for the last time, which is the place of the apparitions of the mystical rose.
In the course of this time she returns to live in the Montichiari region in the locality (neighborhood) of Bosqueti where she faithfully fulfills her mission among the mourners and the needy.
In the year 1968 the third period of the apparitions begins, which continues until the year 1991. In the year 1971 the Virgin told him:
“Pierina, your mission… is Prayer and charity, love in forgiveness and exquisite charity”.
These words of Our Lady are those that confirm what Pierina lived from the beginning of the apparitions, always loving the Lord, the Virgin and her neighbor. She came to offer her whole life and prayers for priestly and religious vocations.
On January 12, 1991, Pierina Gilli returns to the Father’s house.
Synthesis of the History of the Apparitions of the Mystic Rose
The Virgin comes to appear to Pierina in about 2 stages:
- The first was in MONTICHIARI.
- Later, the second came to be in a nearby field known by the name of FONTANELLI which is a small fountain.
Montichiari Apparitions Begin in 1947
Now, Montichiari, which means “Mount Luminous”, is a small town in the north of the Italian city about 20 km from Brecia, the diocesan seat, is located at the foot of the Italian Alps, in the fertile plain of the river Po. It was in these regions that the first appearances of the Rosa Mystica began.
His first appearance
A woman named Pierina Guilli, who was born on August 3, 1911, came to practice nursing. In the spring season of the year 1947, a pretty lady came to appear who came to wear a purple tunic and covered her head with a white veil, in turn she had her chest crossed by the 3 swords, the lady’s face was very sad.
Tears streamed down her cheeks and reached the ground. The lips of this woman parted to pronounce the following words:
“Prayer, Penance, reparation”
Then he kept silent.
On Sunday, July 13, 1947, at the hospital, the Mother of God appeared again. She herself came to wear white and instead of her 3 swords, she had about 3 roses, White, Red and Yellow or Gold, which adorned her chest. So Pierina, amazed at what she saw, asked her the following:
“Please tell me who you are.”
With a very sweet smile, the lady answered the following:
“I am the Mother of Jesus and mother of all of you.”
After this he paused and continued saying:
“Our Lord sent me to implant a kind of new Marian devotion in all institutes, whether male or female, in religious communities and also in all priests.
I promise you that if you come to venerate me in this very special way, you will enjoy a very particular protection, in addition, there will be a flourishing of religious vocations. I also wish that the 13th day of each month be consecrated to me as the Marian day and the 12 preceding ones are the ones that serve as preparation with the special prayers.”
The face of this virgin was illuminated with an inexplicable joy and continued saying:
“On that day I will pour out an overabundance of graces and holiness on those who would have honored me in this way. I wish that July 13 of each year be dedicated in honor of Rosa Mystica”.
Later, she proceeds to explain the meaning of the 3 swords on her chest:
- The First Sword: It means the guilty loss of the priestly vocation or also the religious one.
- The Second Sword: It means the life in mortal sin of the people who are consecrated to God.
- The Third Sword: Means the betrayal of all those people who, by abandoning their own priestly or religious vocation, come to lose their faith in the same way and often become the number 1 enemies of the church.
Now, we proceed to explain the meaning of the 3 roses it has:
- First the White Rose : This is the one that symbolizes the spirit of prayer.
- Second the Red Rose: It means the spirit of sacrifice in order to be able to repair.
- Third, the Golden or Yellow Rose: Its meaning is the spirit of penance.
Third Apparition, October 22, 1947
Her third apparition took place in the chapel of the Montichiari hospital, during the Eucharistic celebration with the full assistance of the doctors, as well as the employees and residents of the place, the Virgin made her appearance as the beautiful Mrs. Everyone became aware of some kind of extraordinary presence from her, however, simply this woman named Pierina was the one who could see her and also hear her.
María, Rosa Mystica, asked what is the practice of devotion that had already been entrusted and likewise stressed the following:
“My divine Son, tired by the incessant offenses, wanted to discharge his justice, however, I interposed myself as the mediator that I am between Him and men, always interceding especially for all those consecrated souls”.
Immediately Pierina, the seer, began to thank him on behalf of each and every one of those who were in that place, including herself of course, then she said goodbye, recommending him with great majesty and tenderness:
“Live on love…, love for your neighbor!”
Fourth Apparition on November 16, 1947
The presence of the Mystic Rose to Pierina, in one of the parish churches of Montichiari, came to be witnessed by various kinds of people, among whom were some priests. Here we are talking about the third appearance. The Virgin’s message was as follows:
“My divine Son Jesus and Our Lord is very tired of the great and severe offenses that are inflicted on him for so many sins against holy purity. It causes him to unleash a kind of deluge of punishments…, however, my intercession has been imposed so that he has a kind of compassion once again, that is why I ask you to ask for prayer and penance in reparation.
In addition, the virgin begged in an intimate way, to each and every one of those present who did not come: On this day I beg you in an intimate way, that all the people subtly proceed to leave without saying anything.
Men can be taken into account so that they do not continue. I will give thousands of blessings and grace to those who help explain these crimes “.
Will we be forgiven then? the seer asked. The Mystic Rose answered:
“Yes, as soon as they stop being committed.”
And with these words he walked away.
Fifth Apparition on November 22, 1947
This Pierina woman asked the Mother: What must be done to be able to fulfill her desires for prayer and also for penance?
The Virgin full of resplendent kindness, the Virgin replied: “Simply Prayer!”
So he was silent for a few moments and continued saying:
“Penance means accepting the small daily crosses and doing the daily work in a spirit of atonement.”
Then he promised her only:
“On December 8, approximately at noon, I am going to come here again and it will be the hour of grace. Said hour of grace is going to be a great event of numerous and great conversions, the souls that are totally hardened in evil and just as cold as this marble, are going to be touched by divine grace for what they will become lovers and faithful to God again.”
Sixth Apparition on December 7, 1947
Being serene and majestic, the Virgin wore a type of white mantle and from her head it fell gracefully in a fold: a boy was holding it to the right and a girl to the left. The Mother of God said:
“Tomorrow I will show my Immaculate Heart which is so little known to men!”
After a short silence, he continues:
“In Fatima, I spread the consecration to my Heart, in Bonate I managed to see that it penetrated into Christian families, here in Montichiari, I wish to implant the devotion to the Mystic Rose together with the veneration of my Immaculate Heart and I also wish, rooted especially in the convents and religious institutes so that the souls that are consecrated to God can obtain the increase of grace to my maternal Heart”.
Pierina asks her about who the children who were next to her were, so the lady explained her question:
“They are nothing more than Jacinta and Francisco who will also accompany you from now on in all your setbacks. They also had to suffer despite being much smaller than you. This is what I simply want from you, simplicity and goodness like these children”.
Then the virgin extended her arms towards the earth as a sign of protection and looking at the sky exclaimed with her sweet voice:
“Praise the Lord”
And having said these words without further ado, he simply disappeared from Pierina’s sight.
Seventh Apparition on December 8, 1947
This woman named Pierina even saw the mother of God say: “I am the Immaculate Conception!” and she with a great majesty she affirmed:
“I am María de las Gracias, that is, the one full of Grace, the Mother of my Divine Son Jesus Christ”.
At the same time he gently descended the ladder and added:
“By my coming to Montichiari I wish to be invoked and venerated as the great Mystic Rose. I want that precisely at noon of each December 8 of each year, which is the day of the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception, it be celebrated at the time of grace throughout the world, through this devotion many graces will be achieved for the soul and also for the body.
Our Lord, who is my Divine Son Jesus, is going to abundantly grant his mercy, while the good ones pray for their brothers who are remaining in sin. It is necessary to inform the Supreme Pastor of the Catholic Church, who is Pope Pius XII, as soon as possible about my desire that this hour of grace must be known and also spread throughout the entire world.
Those who cannot get to go to church should have it done at home at noon and in this way they will be able to obtain my graces.”
After showing him his pure heart, he exclaimed saying:
“Look at this heart that loves men so much, while most of them fill it with vituperations.”
So he was silent for a few minutes and continued to say to Pierina:
“If all men, both good and bad, unite in prayer, they will be able to obtain mercy and peace from this heart. The good ones have just reached through my mediation the mercy of the Lord, which was what stopped a great punishment on them. Soon it will be possible to know the effective greatness of this hour of grace”.
Pierina noticing that the resplendent Lady was going to move away piously and fervently implored her too:
“Oh beautiful and beloved Mother of God, I thank you! Bless the whole world, especially the Holy Father, the priests, the religious and also the sinners”.
So the Mystic Rose answered the following:
“I have prepared for all those of my children who listen to my voice and come to take my desires to heart an overabundance of grace.”
And it was with these words that Pierina’s vision of the apparitions of the Mystic Rose came to an end.
The Apparitions at Fontanelli 1966
This woman named Pierina Gilli, came to spend many years in the regions of Brecia, as an assistant in a nunnery for the order of the Diocesan Bishop Monsignor Giacinto Tredici and also the Franciscan Giustino, who was a priest of great fame; who was since then his spiritual director.
The second stage of the marvelous apparitions of the Rosa Mystica begins in 1966, as described above, in the Fontanelli regions, in a field in Montichiari, which is where the water source hidden in a grotto is located. A kind of old stone steps with about 10 steps leading to the entrance to the cave.
In the month of February, while Pierina was praying in her room in front of an altar of the Virgin, she had the privilege of seeing her again. The Mother of God for that moment instilled a new spirit in her, just as she filled her with consolation and great joy and also promised her for White Sunday, which is April 17, 1966, her apparition in Fontanelli .
Once the Bishop of Brecia was informed about the announced apparition of the Virgin, he ordered Pierina to keep an absolute secret about what happened in particular.
First Appearance at Fontanelli: April 17, 1966
Pierina was praying the rosary when she was walking along the path, a short distance from the grotto. Around noon, after the so-called Angelus bell, the Mother of God appeared and she said:
“My divine Son Jesus, with all love, sent me to give a miraculous power of healing to this fountain… As a sign of penance and purification, kiss the upper step on your knees… Now go down a little more always on your knees and kiss the top again. step”.
The seer Pierina descended on her back and kneeled and the Virgin followed her, her immaculate feet that were bare and that were perfectly visible when perched on the steps. She for a third time she sent him saying the following:
“kiss the stands, and make a cross rise from here”
And then he indicated with his left hand the precise point where the cross should be placed. Then he goes on to say:
“May all the sick and all my children ask my holy divine Son for forgiveness first and foremost. In addition, they must kiss the cross with much love and then draw water from the fountain and drink”.
The heavenly lady approached the fountain and sent Pierina the following:
“Get mud on your hands and then wash. This is going to show you how sin is mud and dirt in the hearts of all my children, however, if they bathe in the water of grace, the souls become purified and once again they will be worthy of the friendship of God”
He leaned over, touched the fountain with his hands in about 2 places and continued:
“It is necessary that all my children know the wishes of my Son Jesus, which were communicated in the year 1947 and the messages that I gave in the Church of Montichiari. Besides, I wish that the sick and each of my children go to this miraculous source. So your mission is going to be in this place in the midst of the sick and all those who need your help.
The Virgin begins to rise to the top and majestically opened her arms, whose momentum unfolded and extended her mantle that came to occupy a very large space. As she was sheltered by her mantle, she turned to her right, and the church of Montichiari appeared to her, as well as the fortress or Castle of Maria.
The Mother of God continued to repeat the following:
“I want the sick and all my children to come here to the fountain of grace.”
His wonderful smile was the signature of all his words, while he continued to rise until he was lost in the immense sky.
The appearance of the Castle of Mary below the mantle of Our Lady, has its reason for being. When the Castle was put up for sale, wealthy people came to want to buy it in order to make it a kind of nightclub, which was not recommended.
Monsignor Rossi, who was the Parish Priest of Montichiari, set out to prevent it at all costs and for that reason incessantly asked for the help of the Mystic Rose. Then came the idea of getting to buy it for charitable purposes. He addressed Monsignor Luigi, who was the Apostle of Charity who had already come to found various types of asylums for the sick and the elderly in the regions of Italy.
This man was the one who bought the castle and turned it into a home for the priests, others included the sick and the elderly. A chapel was established in that place and on the indicated occasions the so-called spiritual retreats are given.
Monsignor Francisco Rossi went so far as to affirm:
“All this is for me a very great and visible miracle of the Rosa Mystica. The old fortress of Mary that was about to become a place of sin is today a place of prayer, reparation and charity.
The constructions that came to appear on the left side, which were sheltered by the mantle of Mary, were only the prophetic vision of different buildings that the faith and charity of the people have been erecting around the miraculous source.
Second Apparition at Fontanelli: May 13, 1966
The Virgin came to host the anniversary of the apparitions in Fatima to be able to manifest herself again to this woman named Pierina Guillini by the fountain, at about 11:40 am. About 20 people had gathered at the scene. Here is the conversation that took place was the following (verbatim words of that conversation between the virgin and Pierina):
The Mother of God began the dialogue: “The news of my coming here to the source must be known and spread everywhere.”
Pierina then asked him: “How can I do it if they don’t believe me and prevent me from acting?”
The virgin tells him: “Here is your mission as I demanded of you.”
Pierina replies: “Oh beloved Mother of God, without a miracle of yours to prove my words, the ecclesiastical authorities will not trust me. I ask you to perform a miracle.”
Without giving an answer to the request, the Virgin simply smiled maternally and continued saying:
“My divine Son is all love, but the world is going to ruin. I have once again obtained mercy and I come to Montichiari to be able to lavish the graces of his love, however, in order to save humanity, prayer, sacrifice and penance are needed”.
After this he pointed to the fountain to the right and said:
“I want a comfortable bath to be built here, fed by this water, where the sick can be immersed.”
And showing towards the left side, he ordered:
“This other part of the fountain must be reserved for drinking.”
So Pierina asked her the name that the fountain should have and the Mystic Rose replied:
“Let it be called the source of Grace.”
The Mystic Rose Medal
On May 19, 1970, the Virgin Mary, who is the Mystic Rose, asked Pierina for the following:
Have a medal minted according to this type of model: on the one hand, be the “Mystical Rose” and on the other, “Mary, Mother of the Church”.
On this day I have been sent by the Lord, who chose the Montichiari region to be able to bring the gift of his love, the gift of the source of grace and also the gift of the medal of my maternal love.
I am the one who will intervene in the diffusion of the medal, a pledge of universal charity. My children will be able to carry me on their hearts everywhere and I promise them with all my heart my maternal protection which is full of graces, in this time when they want to destroy the veneration that is paid to me.
This kind of medal becomes the sign that my children always find me that I am the Mother of the Lord and also the Mother of humanity. This is the triumph of universal love. The blessing of the Lord and it is also my protection which will be forever with all those who come to resort to Me.
This is one of the daily prayers to Maria Rosa Mystica that many Catholic believers confess in their prayers, which is about the Rosa Mystica and it says as follows:
Mary, on this day we unite our yes with yours, please we ask you to reign in our hearts Mother of God and also Mother of all. Allow us to repair with our lives for so many offenses committed against your Immaculate Heart.
