Summary

During a series of 56 apparitions, lasting 14 years, a wide array of prophecies were given to Ida Peederman, a 40-year old office worker at an industrial firm, along with an image of the Blessed Mother standing on a globe with a cross behind her and a prayer. The revelations to Ida Peerdeman by the Lady of All Nations emphasize the importance of the Eucharist and portray in detail the events that precede and that will bring about the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart, most importantly the declaration of the final Marian dogma of Mary as The Lady of All Nations: Coredemptrix, Mediatrix, and Advocate.

Timeline

March 25, 1345

The date of the great Eucharistic Miracle of Amsterdam.

Aug 13, 1905

On August 13, 1905, Isje ("Ida") Johanna Peerdeman is born in Alkmaar, Holland, as the youngest of five children.

March 25, 1945

Ida was at home in a room with her sisters and her spiritual director, Fr J. Frehewas and was drawn to an adjoining room by a mysterious force. “I suddenly saw a light and said to myself: ‘Where is this light coming from? What a curious light?’ The wall then disappeared before my eyes. There was instead one sea of light in an empty space, and out of it I suddenly saw a figure moving forward, a female figure.”'Are you Mary?' Ida asked. The Lady replied, 'They will call me 'Lady, Mother.'"

The Vision moved her her fingers to signal three numbers: three, four and five successively, and told her that the five was for the fifth of May, which was later taken as a prophecy of the date of the end of the war in Holland, May 5th, 1945.

April 21, 1945

Ida saw extensive scenes from the Old Testament, including the events of Exodus. She also saw God the Father, above them in the clouds, with “his face in his hands,” as the Lady said, “And Yahweh is ashamed of his people.” Ida also heard locutions of cries of “Babylon!” or “Ishmael,” or a thrice-repeated “Ninevah,” or even a seven-fold “Hagar.”

November 16, 1950

Two weeks after Pope Pius XII proclaimed the dogma of the Assumption, Ida was given the title of “Lady or Mother of All Nations”, and details of Mary as “Co-Redemptrix, Mediatrix, and Advocate.” She was told that this would be the “last and greatest Marian dogma.”

February 11, 1951

On the feast day of Our Lady of Lourdes, Ida saw another vision where the “Lady” had said: “I am the Lady, Mary, Mother of All Nations. You may say ‘the Lady of All Nations’ or ‘Mother of All Nations,’ who once was Mary. I have come precisely on this day to tell you that I wish to be known as this.” She then gave the following prayer to Ida: “Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the Father, send now Your Spirit over the earth. Let the Holy Spirit live in the hearts of all nations, that they may be preserved from degeneration, disaster and war. May the Lady of all Nations, who once was Mary, be our Advocate. Amen.”

The phrase “who once was Mary,” caused a great deal of difficulty with her spiritual director. Even Ida herself acknowledged this: “I must admit that the words ‘who once was Mary’ were very strange indeed. I said to myself but surely you always are Mary. Afterwards, when I passed on the prayer to Fr. Frehe, he said: ‘What on earth is this ‘who once was Mary?’ She can’t have said this. She is and would always be Mary.’ ” Ecclesiastical authorities, who refused permission for this phrase when the prayer was first printed. "The Lady" did not approve of this and told Ida, “The words ‘who once was Mary’ must remain. Tell the theologians that I am not satisfied with the change in the prayer.” Later on, the full text of the prayer was approved, and Ida was then told: “Tell your bishop that I am satisfied. The text of the prayer is now correct.”

March 4, 1951

"The Lady” appeared dressed in white, standing on a globe with the arms of a cross protruding behind her head and shoulders, and then asked that a picture representing this be distributed widely, with the prayer on the back.

Ida saw the “Lady” standing with her arms down and palms to the front. She also described that in the middle of each hand she could see wounds or scars, from which three “rays” shone, rays which were said to represent grace, redemption and peace. Ida also reported that Mary said, “in this era the Father and the Son wish to send Mary, the Lady of All Nations, as Co-Redemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate.” She was again instructed to propagate the prayer using “modern methods.”

April 29, 1951

The call for a new Marian dogma was repeated: The new dogma will be the dogma of the Co-Redemptrix. I emphasize ‘Co.’ I have already said how much controversy this dogma would arouse. The Church of Rome will have a long struggle over it, will finally proclaim it. ... the Father has sent me in the capacity of Advocate in order to announce the coming of the Holy Spirit. ... The world will be saved by the Spirit. The image and its dissemination—this is the work prerequisite to the dogma. Later, this image would be the emblem of the Co-Redemptrix. The Lady, the Mother, has suffered the sufferings of the Son, both spiritual and corporal.

July 2, 1951

The Lady addressed the eccliastical opposition in her message: “Now, look and listen. What I am going to say is an explanation of the new dogma. ... From my Lord and Master, the Redeemer received his divinity. In this way the Lady became Co-Redemptrix by the will of the Father. It was necessary to begin with the dogma of the Assumption. Then the last and greatest would follow. ... Tell that to your theologians. I do not come to bring any new doctrine. The doctrine already exists. Say this to your theologians: ‘Already, from the beginning, she was Co-Redemptrix.’ ”

May 31, 1959

The Virgin appears for the last time to Ida.

May 7, 1956

Bishop of Haarlem finds no evidence of the supernatural nature of the apparitions, and prohibits public veneration.

March 2, 1957

Bishop of Haarlem confirms this decision with consent of the Holy Office (March 13,1957).

May 24, 1972

Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, responding to a letter of March 29 from the Bishop, re-affirms its decision.

June 27, 1974

Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith affirms its earlier decision, after a deeper investigation, inviting the faithful to discontinue all forms propaganda with regard to these alleged apparitions and revelations.

May 31, 1996

The Bishop of Haarlem, Henry Bomers, published a Notification clarifying the distinction between the title, image and prayer, on one hand, and the messages on the other. The title, image and prayer had been approved for private veneration since the 1950s (according to this decree), and he was now granting the privilege of public veneration, as well. The belief in the messages had been prohibited, but now was permitted according to one's own conscience, the Church being unable to rule definitively "at the moment". As the decree notes, he consulted with "official authorities", without specifying who those authorities were. 

June 17, 1996

Ida Peerdeman, at the age of 90, dies after the approval of the devotion according to the promise of The Lady.

Dec 3, 1997

The Bishop writes Letter (HB-97-403)  commending the "Action of The Lady of All Nations" and the work of Fr. Paul Maria Sigl.

July 21, 2001

Bishop Punt succeeded Bomers after his death in 1998.

May 31, 2002

Bishop Jozef Marianus Punt of Haarlem, having concluded a period of investigation, declared the apparitions accorded Ida Peerdeman of Amsterdam, Holland, in which the Blessed Virgin Mary asked to be known as Our Lady of All Nations, to be "of a supernatural origin". 

August 8, 2005

The Vatican's Congregation for the Docrtrine of the Faith objected to the phrase, "who once was Mary" in the prayer propogated from Ida Peederman. The controversy began when the Secretary of the CDF, Archbishop A. Amato, wrote to bishops in the Philippines regarding this “one particular aspect” of the devotion and asking that it be eliminated.
Amato, the Titular Archbishop of Sila, Italy added: "In fact, this Dicastery, in a letter to His Excellency, The Most Rev. Francois Bacque, Apostolic Nuncio to the Netherlands, has indicated that Marian devotion must be nourished and developed in accordance with the indications given by the Holy Father in"Redemptoris Mater" and "Rosarium Virginis Mariae" and not according to private apparitions nor according to a 'new' name of Mary, such as "Lady of All Nations who was once Mary".

2006

After the local bishop, Mgr Joseph Marianus Punt, consulted with the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith in 2006 in regard to the prayer, the Congregation approved the text of the prayer but with the directive to change the original phrase "who was once Mary" to "the Blessed Virgin Mary" due to possible misunderstanding.

Appearance

Ida Peerdeman relates: “She was clad in white and wore a sash. She stood with her arms lowered and the palms of her hands turned outwards toward me. I thought it must be the Blessed Virgin and that it could not be anyone else. I then said: ‘Are you Mary?’ She answered: ‘They will call me the Lady, Mother.’”

On March 4, 1951, "The Lady” appeared dressed in white, standing on a globe with the arms of a cross protruding behind her head and shoulders, and then asked that a picture representing this be distributed widely, with the prayer on the back.
