Our Lady of Akita, Japan

“Pray very much the prayers of the Rosary.”

On Oct. 13, 1973, the anniversary of Our Lady’s last apparition at Fatima and the Miracle of the Sun, she appeared to Sister Agnes Sasagawa in a convent in Akita, Japan.  

Our Lady actually began what she told Sr. Agnes with these words:

As I told you, if men do not repent and better themselves, the Father will inflict a terrible punishment on all humanity. It will be a punishment greater than the deluge, such as one will never have seen before. Fire will fall from the sky and will wipe out a great part of humanity, the good as well as the bad, sparing neither priests nor faithful. The survivors will find themselves so desolate that they will envy the dead. The only arms which will remain for you will be the Rosary and the Sign left by My Son. Each day recite the payers of the Rosary. With the Rosary, pray for the Pope, the bishops and priests.
