Our Lady of Naju exuding Fragrant oil
On the First Saturday, It was peak of summer in Korea.
While many people went to sea and enjoyed the vacation.
Naju pilgrims gathered to the Blessed Mother's Mountain
to observe the First Saturday devotion and pray with the Blessed Mother
offering up secrifices and penaces during whole night
"At this grave hour when a fierce battle is being waged against
the devil, Satan, who is trying to conquer the world, even those children
who say that they love me are turning their faces away from the Lord
who bleeds and walks with you and this Mommy who cries out
shedding tears of blood, for fear of being wounded from the brandishing
of the swords of persecution, and are relishing the pleasure of
going on vacation under the cool air conditioner,
you rejoice over the persecutions and insults that you receive
and offer up sacrifices together with my daughter whom I have chosen.
What will be there that I cannot lay down for you? ”
(The Message of Love from the Blessed Mother on August 2, 2008)
