After years of battle in court, the statue of Our Lady of America is free to be processed and displayed in the Basilica of the National Shrine in Washington D.C. as Our Lady requested when she appeared to Sister Mildred nearly 60 years ago.
Safeguard for our country
Safeguard for the family
Greater miracles than Lourdes and Fatima
On November 15, 1956, Our Lady asked Sister Mildred to draw a picture of her first appearance and requested that a statue be made according to this likeness and that it be placed, after being solemnly carried in procession, in the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington D.C. Our Lady wishes to be honored there in a special way as “Our Lady of America, the Immaculate Virgin”.
A federal judge recently granted a judgment that the statue of Our Lady of America shown in the photograph above did not violate the copyright claims of Patricia Fuller. Ms. Fuller claimed that she was a nun who held a copyright that the statue violated.
However, her Bishop and the Vatican declared that she was not a nun. And the judge declared that the statue did not violate her copyright claim. Now the statue is free of her claim and may legally be solemnly processed and displayed as Our Lady of America requested.
“I am Our Lady of America. I desire that my children
honor me, especially by the purity of their lives."
