    Sister Agnes Katsuko Sasagawa decided to enter the order of Eucharist Servants of Jesus located in Akita, Japan.

    While opening the chapel Sr. Agnes saw brilliant mysterious rays emanate suddenly from the tabernacle. The same thing happened on each of the two days that followed.
  • June 14, 1973
    Sister Agnes was praying with the community before the Blessed Sacrament when suddenly a light flashed from the tabernacle. Unlike the previous incident, the rays of the golden light were enveloped by a red flame. It seemed that the whole tabernacle was on fire. The sisters didn't see anything.
  • June 28, 1973
    On Thursday, June 28, eve of the Feast of the Sacred Heart, Sister Agnes again saw a blinding light from the Blessed Sacrament, rays of light, and a multitude of angels surrounding the altar in adoration before the Host. In the evening, another mysterious event occurred. While praying in the chapel, Sister Agnes felt as though something pierced the palm of her left hand. There, in the center of her palm, were two red scratches in the form of a cross. As days went by, the pain became increasingly intense. This phenomenon recurs every week, and Bishop Ito himself witnesses it: on Thursday evening, the wound is still dried out, but it begins to swell up, and scratches form on the skin. On Friday morning, blood flows and impregnates the bandages of gauze. On Saturday morning, the wound stops bleeding and becomes dry again. This phenomenon lasted the whole month of July.

    The Guardian Angel again appeared and began to recite the rosary with Sister Agnes before the wooden statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary in the chapel. Then the statue of the Virgin Mary came to life, and a voice of indescribable beauty struck Sister Agnes' totally-deaf ears. This was to be the first Message of Mary... As the Guardian Angel had told, a cross-shaped wound, similar to that of Sister Agnes, appeared in the right hand of the statue of the Blessed Virgin, and blood started to flow.
  • July 26, 1973

  • September 29, 1981
    During the adoration of the Blessed Sacrament Sister Agnes felt the presence of her angel at her side. She did not see the form of the angel, but instead an open Bible appeared before her eyes. The Bible revealed the reference, Genesis 3:15. The Angel explained that the passage had a relationship with the tears of Mary and then continued: “There is a meaning to the figure one hundred and one. It signifies that sin came into the world by a woman and it is also by a woman that salvation came into the world. The zero between the two signifies the eternal GOD who is from all eternity until eternity. The first one represents Eve and the last, the Blessed Virgin Mary.” Sister Agnes re-read the verse, then the angel and the vision of the Bible disappeared.
  • May 30, 1982
