The Akita Apparition - "Fire will fall from the sky."
1973 - Akita Apparition, Japan
a quiet Tuesday afternoon in the Convent of the
Handmaids of the Eucharist, high up on the Yuzawadai
hill, outside the mountain town of Akita, Japan.
Sisters had all gone off on errands, and had left Sister
Agnes Sasagawa to watch over the convent.
was an important opportunity for Sister Agnes. She was
given a responsibility, which she took very seriously.
truth, the other Sisters didn't expect any activity
which would require major decision-making of any kind,
so leaving Sister Agnes alone there was fine.
the totally deaf Nun, she felt she was given a special
treat, in that her superiors allowed her to open the
Tabernacle door in the Chapel, and pray before Our Lord
Jesus present there. Sister Agnes had a great love for
Jesus in the Eucharist.
had developed an intimate relationship with Him in the
Tabernacle. She could speak to Him there. She was
important to Him. When she went to visit Jesus in the
Tabernacle, it was just Him and her. She blocked out
the whole world.
could hear Him, not with her ears, but with her heart.
She told him all that was in her heart. Then, very
often, she just remained silent, while He spoke to her.
It was a magnificent time for her. She could not have
asked for anything greater.
this day, this Tuesday afternoon, the Lord had a special
plan for her. He was to bestow upon her a blessing
which would remain with her for the rest of her life.
In her own words, Sister Agnes tells us:
"When I approached to open the Tabernacle...an
overwhelming, unknown light suddenly shone forth.
Seized with emotion, I prostrated myself immediately
with my face to the floor...I remained perhaps an hour
in this position, subjugated by a power which
can just envision this dear soul, so excited she was
about to burst her skin, but at the same time,
What can this be? What is happening to me?
the rest of the night, she pondered on what had happened
in the Chapel.
tried to discern what the Lord was telling her. But she
was also ecstatic. She wanted more. She wanted to
return. And so she did. She was probably awake all
night long, but she waited until there would be other
Sisters in the Chapel
so, when it was proper for her to return in the early
hours of the morning, she found some other Sisters
praying their morning prayers.
went towards the Tabernacle, her heart pounding, and
again, was overcome by a great light, which blinded
her. She immediately went down on her knees and
prostrated herself before the Tabernacle.
wondered if the other Sisters had seen what she had
seen, but she dared not ask. They must have. But why
were they not on their knees in Adoration?
had they not prostrated themselves? She continued to
pray in this way for a long time. When she got up, she
was alone in the Chapel.
The words of Mother Mary on October 13, 1973 - Akita
I told you, if men do not repent and better themselves,
the Father will inflict a terrible punishment on all
humanity. It will be a punishment greater than the
deluge, such as one will never have seen before.
Fire will fall from the sky and will wipe out a great
part of humanity, the good as well as the bad, sparing
neither Priests nor faithful. The survivors will
find themselves so desolate, that they will envy the
dead. The only arms which remain for you will be the
Rosary and the Sign left by My Son (the Eucharist).
Each day recite the prayers of the Rosary. With the
Rosary, pray for the Pope, the Bishops and the Priests.
