HOW THE MIRACULOUS ICON CAME TO BE PAINTED (WRITTEN) BY JOSYP TERELYA

x josyp terelya and icon

Concerning the creation of the Icon – In retrospect, many spiritually significant events and dates are linked to the creation of “Our Lady Mediatrix of All Graces” Miraculous Icon.  For example, ON“THE FEAST DAY OF THE MOTHERHOOD OF THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY”, Mary’s Way Apostolate was established. Two days later, on October 13th, 1996, ON “THE ANNIVERSARY OF THE GREAT MIRACLE OF THE SUN IN FATIMA”, JosypTerelya from the Ukraine, one of the world’s finest Icon painters (writers), mystic, and world renowned Marian Visionary offered to paint the Icon WITH MARY’S TRUE HEAVENLY FACE – most surprisingly, DURING A SAINT LOUIS DE MONTFORT RELIGIOUS CONFERENCE!

On November 13 and on December 13, through inspiration, vitally important additions were made to the Icon.  THE ICON WAS COMPLETED ON “CHRISTMAS DAY” 1996 – “AS MARY’S GIFT TO THE ENTIRE WORLD” GIVEN TO EVERYONE ON THE ACTUAL 2000th BIRTHDAY OF JESUS! Significally, Jesus’ 2000th birthday passed unannounced to almost everyone in the world. The same happened when Jesus was born, again it was unannounced to everyone in the world except for Mary and Joseph. Later the shepherds were told by the angels about His birth. Francis found out about this in 1998, two years after the Icon was painted. (There is a 4 year error in our calendars. It occurred when our present “Gregorian Calendar” was revised in the year 1582 from “The Julian Calendar”.)

Cardinal Jaime Sin, head of the Archdiocese in Manila, Philippines, was given a very special, surprise gift on his 50th Anniversary, by a Philippino Family, of our 51 inch by 63 inch museum quality, canvas, giclée, lifelike Icon of Our Lady Mediatrix of All Graces.

This exquisite, very large Icon was sent in our replica Italian Renaissance gold leaf frame, and was given to him during his 50th Anniversary Solemn High Mass during the Presentation of the Gifts at the Offertory in The National Cathedral in Manila.

This most exquisite Icon and frame was also a very wonderful surprise to all 2,000 invited guests as it was slowly carried down the long central aisle of The National Cathedral in front of all 225 Philippine Bishops, the President of the Philippines, all of the Philippine Members of Congress, Senate, Legislative and Judicial Branches. The magnificent gift of the Icon of Our Lady Mediatrix of All Graces® was shown on national television throughout the Philippines.

The President of the Philippines, Gloria Arroyo, and all 225 Bishops were also given smaller Icons of Our Lady Mediatrix of All Graces. (See photos of the very large gift Icon given to the Cardinal at that Mass.)

MEDIATRIX (PART 15)

On “The Blessed Virgin Mary’s Birthday” in 1999, Cardinal John O’ Connor, head of the New York Archdiocese, blessed and signed the back of the original icon of Our Lady Mediatrix of All Graces® and offered his Imprimatur for our two Mary Mediatrix Prayers on our Prayer Cards for worldwide distribution. Cardinal O’Connor was given a very large gift Icon of Our Lady Mediatrix of All Graces® for his New York Archdiocesan office.

Later, at the request of the Cardinal’s staff, the Original Icon of Our Lady Mediatrix of All Graces® stayed overnight in Cardinal O’Connor’s bedroom where “Our Lady Mediatrix” gave consolation to him, in his final stage of brain cancer. The Funeral Mass for Cardinal O’Connor in Saint Patrick’s Cathedral was very tellingly, on “The Feast Day of Our Lady Mediatrix of All Graces”. Also, the two Prayers to Our Lady Mediatrix of All Graces that Cardinal O’Connor approved on the Mediatrix Prayer Cards end with “Pray for me each day, Dearest Mother. And hold me close in your most loving arms, at the hour of my death, Amen.” – which we are sure, Our Lady Mediatrix did for Cardinal O’Connor, and will do for everyone who prays to her.

Mediatrix (part 14)

original iconPope Benedict XIV, in another Encyclical proclaimed: “Mary is like a heavenly stream on whose waves all graces and gifts for us unhappy mortals are born.” As explicitly depicted in the Sacred Miraculous Icon of Our Lady Mediatrix of All Graces® and especially in our Mary’s Waves of Graces Picture Frame© – which is also an Icon!  (From Pope Benedict XIV’s 1748 Apostolic Letter, Gloriosae Dominae Genetricis Mariae.)pope benedict xiv

Our Lady Mediatrix of All Graces® has been a Doctrine of the Catholic Church for hundreds of years.  This Doctrine is summarized here and in the previous posts from among thousands of Official Declarations about Mary’s vitally important role as Mediatrix of All Graces as stated:  BY 10 OF THE 27 POPES  who have defined Mary as The Mediatrix, BY THE BIBLE WHICH IMPLIED IT 5 TIMES, BY 10 FATHERS AND DOCTORS OF THE CHURCH, 30 SAINTS,  THE SECOND VATICAN COUNCIL, etc. (Please see previous posts on Our Lady Mediatrix of All God’s Graces for more quotes)

Mediatrix (part 13)

original iconThis unique Sacred Icon is linked to “Our Lady of Fatima” and to “Our Lady of Medjugorje.” Its vital purpose was foretold on the feast day of “Our Lady of Fatima” which is: through Mary’s Most Powerful Role as Mediatrix of All Graces– Mary gives us vast outpourings of All of God’s Graces, and Protection against every type of evil!

On October 7th., “The Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary” the Icon’s vital, two-part purpose was foretold in a profound second dream which was: whoever venerates Mary through her Most Powerful Role as “Mediatrix of all Graces” will receive vast outpourings of all of God’s graces, and also will receive protection against every evil.

Without arranging any of these following 13 dates: on the Feast Day “The Motherhood of the Blessed Virgin Mary”, “Mary’s Way to Jesus Apostolate” was established. Two days later, on October 13th, 1996 on “The Anniversary of The Great Miracle of the Sun in Fatima” and allegedly through “Our Lady of The Rosary”/”Our Lady of Fatima”, one of the world’s finest artists: mystic, and world renowned Marian Visionary Josyp Terelya from the Ukraine offered to paint this Icon exclusively for Francis Slinsky, the Founder and Director of Mary’s Way Worldwide Apostolate – most surprisingly, during a Saint Louis de Montfort Religious Conference. The Icon was commissioned by Francis Slinsky.

This very inspired artist said: “I will paint the Icon for you, if you allow me to paint this Icon with ‘the true, real face of Mary’” that he saw when he was miraculously saved by Mary from certain death, and six other times! On the 13th of November, through inspiration, instructions were given by Francis: to name the Icon “Our Lady Mediatrix of All Graces”, and to paint this principal title around Mary’s head in the universal language of the Church – Latin “DOMINA NOSTRA MEDIATRIX OMNIUM GRATIARUM” – for worldwide distribution and worldwide understanding.

Pope Leo XIII teaches us that not only do all graces come through Mary – in her very powerful role of Mediatrix of All Graces, but that we go to Jesus through Mary: “It may be said that of the great treasury of all graces given us by our Lord, nothing comes to us except through Mary’s Mediation, for such is God’s will. Thus, as no man goes to the Father but by the Son, so no one goes to Christ except through His Mother.” (From Pope Leo XIII’s Encyclical Octobri Mense On the Rosary, Sept. 22

This Papal Mass was concelebrated with 26 Archbishops and Bishops!

The Pope very gratefully received: 3 large Icons of “Our Lady Mediatrix of All Graces” (One of which is shown in the above photograph) , “Our Lady Mediatrix Icon Book”, our “Mary Mediatrix Prayer Cards”, and our exquisite “Icon Medal” of “Our Lady Mediatrix of All Graces” for his use! His Holiness, Pope John Paul II showed his appreciation for his “Mary Mediatrix” gifts, and for this meeting, by giving a “Custom-made Papal Rosary” with his “Papal Crucifix” and his “Papal coat-of-arms” on it and also on a maroon leather-bound, white satin lined, “Papal Rosary Case” with his Papal coat-of-arms inside!

Two days later, on May 16, 1999 the Sacred, original “Mary Mediatrix of All Graces” Icon was placed on the right rear side of Pope John Paul II’s temporary outdoor Altar at the top of the steps, directly in front of Saint Peter’s Basilica, for the outdoor Sunday Papal Mass with over 300,000 people in attendance in Saint Peter’s Square.
