THERE ARE NO COINCIDENCES! JUST CONFIRMATIONS!
OUR LADY OF AMERICA
BLESSES AMERICA, CONTINUOUSLY!
On this webpage you will read part of a "Sacred Story" that began in South Louisiana. Many faithful have come and gone over the years (and they are not forgotten) but it is "The Land" that first underlies the story!
This particular short narrative begins on February 6, 1995 in Louisiana and and specifically in an area geologically called the "Modern Delta". Generally, that area is within the Archdiocese of New Orleans, and the Dioceses of Baton Rouge, Lafayette and Houma-Thibodaux. This is the land area that was built by what we now call the Mississippi River over the approximately the last 4,000 years.
This land area map is generally shown on the February 2020 image under the dove and the Cathedrals in New Orleans, Baton Rouge, Lafayette and Houma.
Let's now move to a Rosary Procession on the hot and thunderstorm-filled Saturday of July 13, 1996 (the feast of Rosa Mystica). Many Catholics from New Orleans and other areas gathered at St. Louis Cathedral in the French Quarter of New Orleans to "Walk the Way of the Cross".
Rosary Procession route on July 13, 1996
The route was signficantly and in part made up of streets named after saints that have surrounded the Cathedral for hundreds of years. (In the map above the image of the Sacred Heart is the cathedral and the saint-named streets were St. Louis, St. Peter, St. Ann and St. Philip. The Mississippi River is alongside to and southerly of the Moon Walk).

Monsignor Robert Guste
On that day in 1996, the procession was led by Monsignor Robert Guste. During the day there were discussions about blessing America using the Mississippi River. Over time, it was discerned that the "Great River" should bless America.
Through an extraordinary series of events, that did eventually happen (five years later) on Friday, June 22, 2001 (the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus). As you will also read below, through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit and the orders of St. Joan of Arc on January 6, 2020 that happened a second time on June 19, 2020 (19 years after the first blessing of America and again on the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus).
January 6th is the birth date of St. Joan of Arc. She was (and has continued to be) a major participant in a battle and war that is directly connected to Our Lady of America and St. Joseph, Terror of Demons and The Holy Family and New Orleans and Louisiana.
Before continuing with the events of 2020, take a few minutes to read what happened in 1777 to George Washington in reference to Our Lady. To do that, please click here.
For years, Our Lady of America has for tried to spiritually prepare America for the untold and unexpected chaos, divisive and hellish events that have manifested themselves in 2020, 2021 and 2023 (and that will be part of the years to follow) unless America turns back to Her Son. Specifically, in 1996
She has inspired Catholics and many other Christians of Louisiana to bless America by prayers, sacramentals and the waters of the "Great River".
Why the Great River?
Very briefly, Louisiana was built from land from the "Heart" of this country. The waters of the "Great River" brought the best land of America (31 States over many centuries) to one small spot in what we now call Louisiana and that river deposited that land in the sea to create the Modern Delta of Louisiana!
As all the events have continued to unfold in 2020, 2021, 2022 and 2023, who of us could have imagined where America would find itself today and/or where it may head, if not with God. The times to come will be all about "Sacrifice"! Please, do not just read this webpage but pray about it as well.
(Pray and please reflect on Revelation Chapter 21 an 22.)
LOUISIANA STATE SYMBOL
For more on this State Symbol, go to the legend on the top left and click on the page titled, "Louisiana and the Eucharist". We are a State created and then named to symbolize "Sacrifice"!
Of special note: While this Random Act of Faith to bless America was being planned, carried out and the Holy Water flowed in 2020, unbeknownst to that group, the Holy Spirit was moving others to produce a powerful video that was totally aligned to the act of the blessing from Louisiana via Minnesota. These two works spiritually "dovetailed" each other.
To view the video that went viral titled "The Louisiana Blessing", that was produced by Louisiana Family Forum and that premiered on September 24, 2020, please click here.
Now, on to the Holy Water Blessing of America (under the title of Our Lady of America) that began at Lake Itasca, in Minnesota on June 19, 2020. That act reached a major milestone in time when the Holy Water reached the Gulf and to let us know that:

Thanks to James, above are images from one location where the Blessed Holy Water entered the Gulf of Mexico (at Southwest Pass). That Holy Water had traveled a 2,552 mile journey from Lake Itasca, MN and that journey began on June 19, 2022 (Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus).
Please read the story below about this Random Act of Faith and how YOU can play a part in the times to come. There are many more waters to be blessed across America that will flow down this Great River into the Gulf of Mexico and the Oceans of the world!
Now, listen to Laura Huval sing Oceans! Laura is from the Cecilia area of Louisiana and has an award-winning music ministry. To get more information on her South Louisiana "Praying With Music" series and much more, click here.
This Holy Water work is heavily inspired by St. Joan of Arc. There is no doubt she often turned to these words from scripture:
10 Finally, draw your strength from the Lord and from his mighty power.
11 Put on the armor of God so that you may be able to stand firm against the tactics of the devil.
12 For our struggle is not with flesh and blood but with the principalities, with the powers, with the world rulers of this present darkness, with the evil spirits in the heavens.
13 You must put on the armor of God if you are to resist on the evil day; do all that your duty requires, and hold your ground.

ON JANUARY 6, 2020, THIS HOLY WATER BLESSING THAT BEGAN IN LOUISIANA WAS IMMEDIATELY DEDICATED TO OUR LADY UNDER THE TITLE OF:
"OUR LADY OF AMERICA".
On February 6, 2020 the preparatory work in the name of ST. JOSEPH, TERROR OF DEMONS began in anticipation and preparation for the pouring of the Holy Water into the Mississippi River on June 19, 2020 (Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus). To listen to a discussion about the power of St. Joseph, please click here. To read about the Year of St. Joseph, please click here.
On May 1, 2020, the Blessed Holy Waters began to be collected from numerous Catholics across Louisiana. It came from their parishes across the state and places visited by these same Catholics over the years. The waters also came from Louisiana Catholics living elsewhere across America who wanted to be part of this Random Act of Faith.
Fr. Anthony Odiong (Pastor of St. Anthony Parish in Luling) in New Orleans, LA
On May 31, 2020 (Pentecost Sunday), this work was joined with the many years of the prayer, fasting and work of Fr. Anthon Odiong, Pastor of ST. ANTHONY PARISH IN LULING, LOUISIANA.

A Statue of Our Lady of America was at the pouring at Lake Itasca on June 19, 2020
On June, 19, 2020 (The Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus), the collected and blessed and mixed holy waters was poured at exactly 3:33 pm in the Mississippi River at Lake Itasca, Minnesota.

(Note: Remember, this happened on the same solemnity day 19 years earlier [June 22, 2001]. For the record and considering what America experienced in 2020, 2021 and 2022, please click here to see what else significantlly happened that day (generally unknown to the public. A "Dark" time indeed!)

Holy Water being poured on June 19, 2020
Note: This work of prayer and action under the title of "Our Lady of America" is being carried out as a private devotion and not a public devotion of the Church. Much like the rosary, although it is an act of private devotion, it does not have to be practiced in private nor does it need to be hidden from the public. This work is an act of private devotion taken to the public square.
This work spontaneously began under the title of "Our Lady of America" before the Church's Statement on the Our Lady of American dated April 24, 2020. Therefore, it continues under that title because it formally began months earlier. To change that now would be disingenuous to actions earlier taken under that title. Additionally, this work is very consistent with the history of the United States of America and its being dedicated to Our Lady. At this particular point in time, America certainly needs Our Lady's care and protection. Therefore, it is very appropriate that "Our Lady of America" be directly connected to this work that first impacts America. Using this title of "Our Lady of America", for this work of private devotion, that is being carried out in the public square, is fully aligned with and not adverse to the Statement and Decree of April and May, 2020.
In addition to the Statement and Decree, other interesting and relevant articles pertaining to Our Lady of America (before and after the Statement and Decree) are as follows:
Regarding Our Lady of America

Devotion to Our Lady of America gains further approvals! What comes next?
By this work, the faithful hereby are putting our prayer to Our Lady, the Immaculate Virgin, as the Patroness of America, in action in the public square under Her title of "Our Lady of America". While doing so with all seriousness, at the same time, this act of private devotion should in no way imply approval or acceptance of purported revelations, visions, or locutions attributed to Sister Mary Ephrem (Mildred) Neuzil other than as her own subjective inner religious experiences, as stated in the Statement(s) dated April 24, 2020 and/or May 7, 2020 and/or the corresponding Decree (as cited and/or within certain articles above).

MORE ON THE "RANDOM ACTS OF FAITH":
Nineteen years ago, on Friday, June 22, 2001, at 3:33 pm Central Time (also the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus that year) blessed Holy Water was first successfully poured into the previously (and for- a-time-named) River of the Holy Spirit and then the River of the Immaculate Conception (currently known as the Mississippi River) at its source at Lake Itasca, MN (Diocese of Crookston).
Only now do we in part understand why the Holy Spirit led us to that exact day to begin the Holy Water blessing of the America. For that connection, click here. The significance of these dates would not begin to be known and in part understood until 19 years later.
(Note: This Itasca, MN location is about 130 miles from the discovery of the Kensington Runestone where the Blessed Mother was first invoked by Norwegians by the following verbiage carved in that stone:
"AVM (Ave Maria) Save from evil" (in the year 1362).
The Holy Water used in 2001 was a sacramental mix of Holy Waters from Louisiana Catholics from their past travels around the country and world. In 2001, Catholics prayed for the country along the river as the Holy Water flowed southerly to Louisiana and the Gulf of Mexico. On or about September 11, 2001 the Holy Water reached it destination.
The Holy Water used in 2020 was a sacramental mix of the original Holy Water of 2001 plus Holy Water from many other locations around Louisiana and the world gathered and contributed by Louisiana Catholics.
Solmenity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus
June 22, 2001 June 19, 2020
Holy Water was poured in both years from same exact location.
AS THE WATER WAS POURED IN 2001, SEE THE PROFILE OUR OUR LADY OF AMERICA AS SHE WAS LOOKING OVER THE EVENT. ONLY SHE KNEW WHAT WOULD BE GOING ON IN AMERICA WHEN THE WATER WAS TO BE AGAIN POURED IN 2020. WE NOW UNDERSTAND SHE WAS LETTING US KNOW IN 2001 THAT WHEN THOSE TIMES CAME IN 2020...SHE WAS WITH US AND AMERICA FROM THE BEGINNING! SHE KNEW THE "DARK WINTER" WE WERE HEADED INTO HAD STARTED.

The 2020 Holy Water mix also included a small amount of the pure rainfall from Hurricane Cristobal blessed by a Catholic priest. In 2020 that storm entered in Louisiana and exited it in Minnesota. (Please see map below. In a manner, it produced a roadmap to confirm the work that was about to happen in a few days.)
Cristobal = "bearing Christ"
A "thank you" goes out to the many, many people that assisted in gathering these waters.
After being poured on June 19, 2020, the sacramental mix began to flow down the river 24/7, directly through 23 Catholic dioceses that are along the river, as many prayed for in repentance and a sacramental blessing upon this country.

Route of Blessed Holy Water since June 19, 2020
Please click here to read the prayer that was prayed at the Lake Itasca site where the Holy Water was poured at 3:33 pm on Friday, June 19, 2020. That prayer was also simultaneously prayed by many Louisiana Catholics at many other locations while they were pouring. Now, we are beginning to see how appropriate that prayer was to be for America in the time following.
The Holy Water arrival in the Gulf of Mexico began to be celebrated in Louisiana on Saturday, August 15, 2020 (Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary). We continue to celebrate that arrival long after that day has come and gone. The ramifications are eternal.
Again, "thank you" to all Louisiana Catholics that collected the many blessed Holy Waters from all over the State and elsewhere and/or in any way assisted in making this happen on Friday, June 19, 2020. This "Random Act of Faith" could not have happened without so many faithful donors of Holy Water and helpers.
As in June of 2001, the effects of this blessing will not end when the Holy Water reaches the Gulf of Mexico. It is but one blessed gift to the United States from Louisiana Catholics so to pray against the evil that is, at this time, becoming more overt for all to see and experience.
Phase No. 2 was:
Blessed Holy Waters continue to poured into creeks, streams or rivers that eventually flowed into the Mississippi River. Eventually, all the waters are mixed in the river as they head to the Gulf of Mexico. This included (but was not limited to) major rivers such as:
Big Black River
Des Moines River
St. Croix River
(and connecting waterways)

This Holy Water blessing is a WORK OF LOVE! Not of fear.
1John 4:18 "There is no fear in love, but perfect love drives out fear because fear has to do with punishment, and so one who fears is not yet perfect in love."
Take courage in the BATTLE AGAINST EVIL
Ephesians 6:10-17 10 Finally, draw your strength from the Lord and from his mighty power. 11 Put on the armor of God so that you may be able to stand firm against the tactics of the devil. 12 For our struggle is not with flesh and blood but with the principalities, with the powers, with the world rulers of this present darkness, with the evil spirits in the heavens. 13 Therefore, put on the armor of God, that you may be able to resist on the evil day and, having done everything, to hold your ground. 14 So stand fast with your loins girded in truth, clothed with righteousness as a breastplate, 15 and your feet shod in readiness for the gospel of peace. 16 In all circumstances, hold faith as a shield, to quench all [the] flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
