Why pray? The entity that appears wants it
The speech is simple. The entity that appears as we have said has a purpose, to gather crowds and what better way than to erect a church, a chapel?
A point of reference where thousands of people united under the same purpose merge the energy of prayer.
Someone asks why reciting the rosary, well the holy rosary is a very powerful energetic expression, an unparalleled lethargy.
Prayer for an urgent grace is full of emotions, fears, fears by virtue of the fact that the person for whom it is requested is evidently in danger of life.
Here we read a whole series of testimonies of apparitions of the Virgin Mary where inside we find the ufological aspect and the desire to create a bond with believers through atypical phenomena for the time aimed at making people cry for a miracle as on the occasion of tears of statues.
The tears of blood or other substances similar to human tears from statues of the Virgin Mary have been recorded over the centuries.
The chronicle records in a not very distant past those of the Madonna of Civitavecchie and recently those of the statuette of the Madonna of Trevignano Romano belonging to the visionary Gisella Cardia.

A few weeks later, in the same place, Our Lady appeared to a paralyzed young man and said to him: «Go to the mayor and ask him to have a church built in this place». Since she could not walk, Maria healed him and he was able to go to the mayor. Seeing him suddenly healed, the mayor and all the others believed him and so it was decided to build a chapel which was the destination of a strong pilgrimage. Some time later, in gratitude for other miracles that occurred, the chapel was replaced by a large church, later elevated by Pope John XXIII to a basilica. Vailankami is today considered the Indian Lourdes.

The ants only left the church when the painting was restored and put back on the wall.

THYRNAU (SLOVAKIA). During the plague, the icon of Mary in the sanctuary of Thyrnau began to visibly sweat and weep. These phenomena were examined by the ecclesiastical authorities and scrupulously confirmed by thirty witnesses who witnessed the tearing on the following dates: 5 July, 10 August and 11 August 1708. On the 100th anniversary of the event it was highlighted that the portrait was a copy of the famous icon located in the church of Sant’Alessio in Rome. This icon had been brought from Edessa, in Syria, to Rome and was known since the fourth century for the many thaumaturgical events associated with it. According to legend, the young Alessio, son of the patrician Eufemiano, was ordered by his parents to get married; the night before the wedding, he fled and reached Edessa where he lived for 17 years dedicating himself only to God. Returning to Rome, he managed to be hosted by his parents without revealing his true identity. He died leaving signs of great holiness.

KEVELAER (GERMANY). Kevelaer is the most popular place of Marian worship in Germany. The tradition dates back to Christmas 1641 when Hendrik Busman von Geldern was absorbed in prayer in front of a cross on the moors. Suddenly he heard the voice of the Madonna who said to him: «In this place you must dedicate a chapel to me». Maria repeated this wish twice more, and Hendrik’s wife saw in a dream an illuminated chapel. The couple hired the parish priest Giacomo Schink to project the dream chapel. When this was made, a small copy of the “Consolatrice degli afflitti” (Our beloved Lady of Luxembourg, cf. 1627) was used as the image of the Madonna. This small chapel soon became a point of attraction for devotees. Around the place of Marian worship various churches of vast proportions were built over the centuries, even if modest from an artistic point of view. Today, around 600,000 pilgrims visit the shrine each year.
MARPINGEN (GERMANY). A simple farmer often went to pray in the chapel of Grace which had been erected following the miraculous events of 1876 (cf. 1876). It was sunset on July 16, 1983 when the farmer went to the chapel as usual to pray. While reciting the Our Father, he suddenly saw the figure of the Holy Virgin, in a celestial and harmonious light, who dictated the following message to him: «One hundred years have passed since my revelations. You have understood neither the image of grace nor my message. My message has been misrepresented and has fallen into ridicule. I told you then how you were to live the godly Christian life and where sin leads. I have shown you Hell for sinners who are eternally lost. I have shown you the greatest of all miracles: the solar prodigy and the signs in the sun. Many have been witnesses. Your sins have aroused the wrath of God and caused the first and second world wars. Even these appalling calamities have been forgotten. The sins of today’s times surpass even those of all times past in their gravity. Many ridicule my messages and all devotees who pray and have faith in the water of grace. Don’t be surprised if more catastrophes occur. You have been given a lot of time to redeem and improve. If you then call, in the moment of misfortune: “Lord! Lord!”, it will no longer have any sense. The prince of this world, the enemy of God, has blinded you to the revelations and commandments of God. He has choked you in the gain of earthly things and the passion of the senses, tearing you away from all forms of spiritual and interior life. Your life is no longer a Christian life, but the life of the new paganism! Where only the slavery of vice triumphs, hatred, discontent, quarrel, jealousy, greed, the “free love” of the senses and the greed of the flesh. The harmonious life of a Christian family has long since been destroyed. Misfortunes and wars of an immeasurable nature will surprise you. You descend more and more into the abyss of your disgusting sins… In front of the gate of Jerusalem I find myself weeping as Christ wept over Jerusalem. The Christian flag is shown by men only externally, but daily life is really lived without faith and prayer. How many times have I admonished you in so many revelations and messages. At no time as in this have I manifested myself to mankind to manifest the omnipotence of God. But the prince of this world, the enemy of God has blinded you to the commandments and revelations of the Almighty.
