600 years before the first apparition of the Lady of All Nations


The Eucharistic miracle of Amsterdam (the Netherlands) took place on March 15, 1345, 600 years before the first apparition of the Lady of All Nations in Amsterdam. A sick man was dying in his house and given the last rites, but he could not keep down Holy Communion and rejected the Host. The woman who nursed him threw the vomit into the fire. The next morning, as she relit the fire, she saw the Host hovering above the flames. She placed it on a cloth, put it in a box and brought it to a priest... The Host was carried to Saint Nicolas Church, with much pomp, in a solemn procession.

The bishop recognized the miracle in 1346. The Solemnity of the Blessed Sacrament became a liturgical as well as urban festival. Pilgrims flocked to the church. Today, every year on March 15th, about 10,000 people from all parts of the Netherlands participate in the feast, praying silently and following the historic path of the first procession.

In her second message, given on April 21, 1945, the Lady of all Nations showed the visionary a procession filing past outside the church and said: “That is the Miracle Procession of Amsterdam.” This meant that the Virgin Mary intentionally chose to speak to all nations from a recognized "Eucharistic city."
