The Image of Our Lady of America is from a statue made in her likeness as she requested.
The Visitations of this image are for the mission of Purity, Peace and Protection. The mission is a project of the apostolate of The Missionary Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe, a lay non-profit tax-exempt corporation.
The mission is to co-ordinate parish Visitations of the image of Our Lady of America. The Missionary Image apostolate trains local Guardian Teams and entrusts the image to them. These Teams prepare for the Visitations in cooperation with the local pastors. The mission is supported by donations, free-will offerings and sales of religious goods.
The Visitations consist of Holy Hours of Prayer for Purity, Peace and Protection from a booklet with the recitation of the Rosary and veneration of the image. There is a talk explaining the image and the messages of Our Lady. Religious goods are available for sale to promote the devotion. The Visitations include works of mercy such as visits to hospitals, nursing homes, prisons and schools.
The three greatest needs in the world today are for Purity, Peace and Protection against the Culture of Death, war, terrorism and natural disasters. Our Lady of America gave her promises to Sister Mildred. She is the Immaculate Conception and Mother of Mercy who intercedes with us to The Divine Mercy of her Son Jesus. Her messages are relevant to the needs of purity, peace and protection.
