On April 6, 2007, Good Friday, at about 3 p.m., as the pilgrims were
beginning the Stations of the Cross on the Blessed Mother' Mountain
in Naju, Julia began  suffering the pains of the crown of thorns and
bleeding from the top of her forehead. 

While Julia and other pilgrims were doing the Stations of the Cross on the Blessed Mother’s Mountain in Naju, she suffered the extreme pains of the Crown of Thorns, and blood streamed down from the top of Julia’s forehead and stained her clothes.  There also appeared a scourging mark on her ear.




 As more blood streamed down from her forehead,
Julia received some of the blood in her hand.

Despite her pains and weakness,
Julia and many other pilgrims did the Stations of the Cross barefoot.

Julia fell at the Ninth Station because of the pains of scourging.

At the Twelfth Station, where Jesus died, the pilgrims prayed fervently
and cried loudly.

After finishing the Stations of the Cross,
the pilgrims knelt and prayed before the Crucifix on Mt. Calvary.
Tiny drops of the Lord’s Precious Blood came down like a light drizzle.

At about 6 p.m. while the priests were writing down their testimonies after having witnessed Julia's suffering the pains from the crown of thorns and her bleeding, more blood suddenly streamed down on Julia's forehead. 
The priests and several volunteer helpers witnessed this surprising scene. 
Also, even though not visible in the photograph, Julia suffered the pains of scourging which Jesus had suffered, and, because of this, exuded sweat and thick, sticky water, which made it difficult for her to open her eyes.


Bleeding continued for a while after the devotion of the Stations
of the Crosswas finished.
 There also were many tiny blood stains
on Julia’s forehead as if sprayed with a sprayer.


April 7, 2007 - Vigil of Easter Sunday

On this Easter Vigil, I was suffering indescribably severe pains in my body, heavily weighed down by the cruel scourging all over and the crown of thorns on Good Friday, but I offered up these pains and devoted myself to prayer so that all the pilgrims might experience the joy of the Resurrection.  Together with the pilgrims, I prayed the Glorious Mysteries of the Holy Rosary walking on the Way of the Cross in order to celebrate the Vigil of Our Lord’s glorious victory gained by defeating death and resurrecting and to sound the prelude to the triumph of the Blessed Mother’s Immaculate Heart.  While we were praying the Third Glorious Mystery, Jesus on the Cross at Mt. Calvary radiated the light of the Holy Spirit on all of the pilgrims, which was so powerful that the Crucifix shook forcefully, and began speaking.  


"My beloved little soul!  I intend to save all by sending down the Holy Spirit as requested in your prayers filled with the love with which you have meditated on the Mystery of Salvation earned through the inestimable pains on the Cross and have participated in My Passion so that the clergy may be sanctified and even the most wicked sinners, whose very human nature has been dried up, may receive the grace of repentance." .....     (In the message of Our Lord's, April 7, 2007)  

“Holy Week in Naju was a grace-filled experience”

A testimony by Fr. Donald Lasap

Almost 20 years ago, someone brought a picture of a weeping statue of the Blessed Mother of Naju to our diocese of Myitkyina, Kachin State, Burma.  I saw it for the first time and was very impressed.

I was told about the Naju miracles by some people in Singapore in the year 2000 when I went there for a retreat.  Since then I have been eager to visit Naju but somehow I never had a chance to do that.

In February 2007, a group of pilgrims from San Francisco, California, USA invited me to go to Naju during the Holy Week.

The following are some of the incredible things I witnessed together with many other pilgrims.

On Good Friday, April 6, 2007, at 3:00 p.m., as we (all the pilgrims) were getting ready for the Way of

   the Cross, Julia Kim began to receive the crown of thorns on her head.  We saw the blood streaming    down from her head.  

 Fr. Herman Ando from Indonesia and I accompanied Julia along the Way of the Cross.  Julia fell down   three times.   

 After the 15th Station, we continued to pray in front of the Crucifix and at a certain point Julia wiped the    feet of Jesus on the Crucifix and her palm became wet with fragrant oil.  She also asked us (Fr. Herman    and myself) to do the same.  We followed her direction and found our palms were wet with the same    fragrant oil.

 After the Way of the Cross and the rosary, we began to see the blood flowing down again from Julia’s    forehead.

On Holy Saturday evening I was asked by some of the elders to welcome the miraculous statue of the    Blessed Mother Mary brought by Julia.  As soon as the car door was opened all of us could smell a very    strong fragrance or roses.  All the pilgrims that were there witnessed the fragrant oil oozing out from the    statue of the Blessed Mother.

After our evening rosary that was before the vigil Mass, some of us: Fr. Herman, myself, some    photographers and some of the elders were gathered in a room behind the vinyl chapel, chatting with    Julia when all of a sudden we found some marks of blood on our stoles.  On the right side of my white    stole we saw a thick drop of fresh blood and then found another mark of blood on my stole and also two    marks of blood appeared on the stole of Fr. Herman.

During my stay in Naju I observed Julia carefully.  I noticed great humility, deep prayer life, a lot of fasting by her and her great love for everyone there.  I also observed her complete surrender to the will of God.

I am very much convinced that the Holy Spirit is speaking to the world through her.  The Holy Spirit gives her the necessary graces to endure her various kinds of sufferings.

I also witnessed the inner transformation in the lives of so many people who were there.  Many pilgrims shared with me how they used to live their lives and now they say that their lives are on the right path again thanks to the Naju messages and signs.

I myself feel very much remorse for my many failures especially in my prayer life - for not doing what I should have and I could have.

Holy Week in Naju was a grace-filled experience for all of us.

After returning home one of my sisters kept asking me.  “What happened to you?  You are different than before.”

Yes, I am changed.  I feel that I am being renewed.

Thanks be to God and Mother Mary of Naju.
