This is one of the most
incredible miraculous photos ever taken at Our Lady of the Roses
Shrine. It was taken at the vigil of May 7, 1976 by Mrs. Ann
Ferguson. Using a Polaroid camera, she took a photograph of Our
Lady’s Shrine statue. But very mysteriously, the face of Our
Lady’s Shrine statue disappears completely in the photograph.
And just as mysteriously another statue, with almost
real-to-life features of Our Blessed Mother, appears on the
opposite side of the picture. But now, looming between the two
statues of Our Lady appears a large reddish-brown head of a
bear. What does this bear represent? Russia, communist Russia.
Our Lady is calling to mind the messages She gave us at Fatima
in which Our Lady told us that if Her requests for prayer, for
penance, for amendment of life were not heeded, that Russia
would be the scourge of mankind.
