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”.)
