Our Lady – “
I have been investigating and writing for a long time now trying to predict how Our Lady of Fatima will accomplish Her promise: “In the end my Immaculate Heart will triumph and there will be a period of peace granted to the world.”
I do not think I will ever find the answer until I watch it happen, I think I
am getting clues to how it will come about.

that peace will come after World War III.

As I have pointed out in many other Newsletters, Islam wants to take over the world by force and they make no bones about it. Not one day goes by where you do not read about some attack on Christian buildings, and Christian people being killed somewhere in the world by Moslems. Not a day goes by where many innocent men, women and children are not killed by home made bombs in the name of Allah.

It was on September 25, 1956, that Our Lady appeared to Sr. Mary Ephrem.
"Dear children, unless the United States accepts and carries out faithfully the mandate given to it by heaven to lead the world to peace, there will come upon it and all nations a great havoc of war and incredible suffering.
“If, however, the United States is faithful to this mandate from heaven and yet fails in the pursuit of peace because the rest of the world will not accept or cooperate, then the United States will not be burdened with the punishment about to fall."
"Sin is overwhelming the world and punishment is not far away. ... Help me bring once again the sunshine of God's peace upon the world."

From: RICHARD SALBATO

To: Binzer, J
Subject: Our Lady of America
Can you tell me the present approval or disapproval of the apparitions Our Lady of America.
Dear Mr. Salbato:
This is information about Our Lady of America that has been shared with others.
Fr. Joe Binzer
In recent years, the Archdiocese of Cincinnati has received some requests for information about Sister Mildred, about devotion to Our Lady of America, and about the role Archbishop Paul F. Leibold played in her life. I will tell you what has been shared with others.
The following is important. In 1996, Sister Mildred wrote to ask if we had any documents indicating that Archbishop Leibold had granted approbation of her vision or of devotion to Our Lady of America. We thoroughly examined all of our files and while we were able to find correspondence between the Archbishop and Sister, we were not able to find anything in the files that could be considered approval.
We have copies of a booklet that refers to a printing on February 12, 1960. It dealt with events of the late 1950s. In a letter to Sister dated January 5, 1963 (then) Bishop Leibold refers to a leaflet and writes: “Needless to say it was approved – I had (then) Father Pilarczyk act as a Censor and I granted the Imprimatur.” – BUT – the leaflet ends with this notation: “All material is printed only as a personal diary and NOT for official publication.”
Bishop Leibold and Father Pilarczyk distinguished between what is “printed” and what is “published” – things printed for private use do not carry imprimatur (e.g... notes of the professor for class, etc.). They did not think this leaflet should be “published” in the strict sense – they looked on it only as a private printing as long as it contains, as it does, the story of private revelations.
In 1963, Sister Mildred submitted a Prayer to the Indwelling Most High Trinity. Father Pilarczyk was asked to review it as Censor. He granted the Nihil Obstat and Bishop Paul Leibold granted the Imprimatur on January 25, 1963. While recent editions of the booklet, Our Lady of America, put the Imprimatur information on page 3, it should appear only with the Prayer.
While I am not able to find anything that would indicate that Archbishop Leibold granted approval to the apparitions, he remained Sister’s spiritual director until his death in 1972. He also arranged for the striking of a medal, the carving of some relief plaques, and the design of a statue of Our Lady of America. He was obviously very supportive of Sister and her message up to the time of his death in 1972.
At the present time, the Archdiocese
of Cincinnati has not commissioned a statue of Our Lady of America to be
