We follow Mother Mary on a journey again to a far-off place, high up in the mountains, where no one would consider going. We have never really paid much attention to what towns are located where in Japan, other than Tokyo, Nagasaki and Hiroshima. In looking on a map, we find Akita to be a thriving metropolis, in the north of the country, with a population of about 300,000 people, a lot more than you would consider for a small town in the mountains of Japan. But there was a reason for Our Lady to go there in 1973. And there was a reason She came to a Sister in the community of the Handmaids of the Eucharist. Their charism has been to adore Our Lord Jesus in the Eucharist. Eucharistic Adoration and reverence for the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist form the spearhead of their community. Our Lady could trust this Sister and her community with the message She was to give her.
And so we follow the Angels, as they set out to bring the Queen of the World gently down to earth once more, to this mountain hamlet, in a small country on the other side of the world, so that She can speak to us there, and here, and all over the world.
June 12, 1973 - Akita, Japan
It was 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. The Sisters had all gone off on errands, and had left Sister Agnes Sasagawa to watch over the convent. This was an important opportunity for Sister Agnes. She was given a responsibility, which she took very seriously. But in 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.We follow Mother Mary on a journey again to a far-off place, high up in the mountains, where no one would consider going.
