Witnessed Around the World

The beautiful images you see in this article are photos of the sun, and they are quite remarkable. The images represent a miracle that was first witnessed almost 100 years ago and continues to occur in different places around the world. Probably the most popular cited case was on October 13, 1917 in Fatima. On this day, tens of thousands of people witnessed the Miracle of the Sun. The people were gathered to prepare for a visitation by the Blessed Virgin Mary, who was predicted to appear to three young children that lived in the village. According to many witnesses, after a period of gloomy darks skies the sun suddenly appeared and produced extraordinary solar activity. It appeared softer than normal, making it possible to look directly at it, and it danced in the sky casting a spectacle of multicolored lights to be observed. This miracle of the sun is just one of the many sightings that have happened over the last hundred years. Still today, there are reports of sun miracles occurring in other Marian sites around the world. In the small town of Medjugorje, for instance, millions of pilgrims have witnessed the spinning of the sun. Numerous testimonies continue to be recorded that describe the occurrence of this supernatural event.

Marmora Marian Site

Another significant Marian site is in the small town of Marmora, just outside of Peterborough in Ontario, Canada. In this humble town there is a place where the miracle of the sun, as well as other extraordinary miracles, are witnessed on a regular basis. The site is located on a picturesque farm called Greensides named after its owners. It was established as a place of prayer, for people to come and meditate on the Stations of the Cross in the beauty of the rustic hillsides. On many occasions, there have been large pilgrimages, with thousands of people attending the grounds. During prayer at different stations people have testified to the smelling of roses, visions of the Blessed Mother, indescribable peace and tranquility, as well as spectacular visions of the sun. The photographs included in this article are actual pictures that were recently captured during a pilgrimage visit to the area on Good Friday 2012. The pictures were taken by devout Christian Catholics who go regularly to the site, in order to pray the Stations of the Cross. I feel honored to be able to share these photos and can testify to their authenticity, as they were first observed in the digital camera shortly after taking them. The humble group refer to themselves as a small remnant prayer group and make it part of their mission to witness to the miracles that are happening, for the Glory of Jesus Christ and the Blessed Mother.

The Signs are There!

When viewing the photos of the miraculous sun it is comforting to see how Heaven continues to send spectacular signs to the faithful and those seeking answers. Many people who have visited Marmora come long distances hoping for some insight, and clarity, into their faith. Many people leave feeling totally transformed, renewed, and more confirmed in their belief and relationship with God. As one pilgrim put it, “God made His presence so clear to me today that my life has been changed forever.” Such life altering experiences continue to occur to people who visit the Marmora Marian Site, and the miracles appear to be increasing with more and more pilgrims being witness them.

      These are beautiful photos of the sun. The colors and designs are quite beautiful and so brilliant. I would love to see these in person. I believe it would bring one closer to the creator's mind as they viewed the sun and meditated upon it's reflection of His design.

      A a person who has visited Marmora once a month in a pilgramage with a special group of people I have come to know, appreciate and love as fellow Catholics and friends, I can truly state with confidence that Marmora is truly holy ground. My prayer life has deepened from both knowing the good people I have come to share and pray with and as well, the pilgrimage at Marmoma with the prayer group. The Blessed Mother and Jesus are there - that is an indisputable fact..... God Bless you all. Thank you Lisa for your witness of Marmora.

      Can the HEART of CHRIST, radiate so much LOVE for mankind? God, is by far the greatest ARTIST ever! We can observe it in nature and the universe around us. Clearly, God continues to show to us daily, that JESUS is the guiding LIGHT of the world, and that there is no other!

      In 1994 while in Marmora a man approached me and asked, "Why are there so many people in this farm?" I responded that the Blessed Virgin Mary was appearing to some people. He asked me if I have seen her and I answered I did not but I said that because of this miracle God through the Blessed Virgin Mary had cleansed my heart and soul. I have forgiven the person I hated most. HE changes hatred to love.

      Miracle...Miracle..in these days ? One can find when you are looking for them. It is like when the student is ready the teacher appear. It makes sense if one does not believe in miracle how can you recognize one? Here is a silent miracle with no fan fare to boot. The owners bought the 150 acres hobby farm and then open it to the public free to use at anytime of the year, guess what, with no obligation at all..not even a penny charge and for unlimited visit year round.You won't hear the owners ask for anything...if in your heart you want to donate..so be it.The grounds need upkeep and pilgrims do leave a lot of work to be done. Let us offer a prayer or two for the owners to continue accommodate the pilgrims and visitors who come to pray and visit. Yes ..miracles..they do happen....they are all around us...take a look..a real good look...one might be staring at you right now.

      There is so much proof of the existence of a higher power at work if one is only to look with an open mind and heart. Great article and pictures; voted up, awesome, interesting, and useful.

      What amazing testimonies to the wonders of God! God has so many awesome ways to reveal himself to His people. He is a supernatural God so why should we think it strange that He reveals Himself in supernatural ways!

      I humbly say that I was blessed to witness the miracle of the sun twice at Marmora. The second time around the sun was pulsating and turning round and round in orange, blue and yellow from 2pm to 4pm at the 10th station. We were around 15-20 people at that station when this phenomena took place. Then, around all of us there were huge perfectly round yellow halos. I thought it was my eyes deceiving me but the lady near me and the rest of the crowd saw the halos around all of us too. We were trying to get it on video and film but it would not play back. Unfortunately, we did not have an instant camera. Believe it, God is among us and we can live humbly among our fellowmen in peace and love, if we choose to do so. Our Blessed Mother always always tells us to pray to her Son for peace. Miracles take place in the humblest of places throughout the world – how can one doubt His Presence and messages through our Our Lady. He is our forgiving God. We can choose to live in the past or make the next moment and each day a happy pleasant one. All about choices.

      cast away forever the theory of "God approaching and elevating only souls dedicated to Me;" I do not approach only devout souls; I make no difference; why, am I a God of predilection? My Heart pains Me to see how many of you still believe that My graces are given only to devout sisters or brothers; as told by Christ to vassula ryden in the True Life In God Messages. (tlig.org)

      It is painful to think many of God's children believe that he would differentiate his love for one more than another. It is unfortunate that people write down evaluations of others hearts and beliefs only to create judgement and division. Let us all rejoice that God is alive in the world for all to experience!

      Every miracle that happens every time can only be understood in one's humility to The Lord of Creation, and Jesus, who is the fullness of the Deity in bodily form has sent us the Holy Spirit to enlighten our hearts and souls towards this truth.

      True, Jesus came not for the righteous, but for sinners, that they may see him, feel him and may find their way to his lighted path through the Holy Spirit who connects and speaks to us in a voice that can best be understood as we may humble ourselves to God's divine, holy, healing and cleansing words from the Bible which are so true, meaningful and full of God's loving mercy and grace.

      Blessings to all. Hallelujah to The Lamb.
