A NAME - In the small city of Naju, in the Southwest of the Korean peninsula, since June 30, 1985, supernatural manifestations have happened which are leaving the whole world admired and thoroughly surprised, with the greatness of the Divine zeal in to prove Christian truth. Through OUR LADY, as in others apparitions, the LORD reveals who loves each one of HIS children of a special mode and therefore, HE wants our love. In spite of our weaknesses and limitations, HE wants that we also demonstrate to HIM the big dimensions of our kindness, of our affection and our faithfulness.
For this Divine charming mission, the LORD has chosen Julia Kim, for to be the interpreter close to humanity, transmitting HIS Ultimate Wish.
With own words, the Seer summarizes the life and her encounter with GOD and VIRGIN MARY.
JULIA KIM - When I remember the past, my mind stays full of astonishment and admiration because of the Divine Providence.
I was born on March, third day of 1947, in Naju, South Korea. Until four years of age I lived in perfect and complete happiness with my parents and family, but the happy days ended when the Korean War began. My father, my grandfather and my younger sister died. I and My mother have been survivors and we have had to fight with perseverance against poverty and difficulties of several natures in order to survive and to execute the mission of our life. In 1972 I married with Julio Kim and of our marriage two boys and two girls were born. I had to interrupt my studies in the secondary school, because of our poverty, although always having interest in to study to develop my learning the how much more possible. I had problems serious of health for long and painful years including hemorrhages that didn't cease, although I went submitted to an endless number of exams, treatments and operations without any success, because in the last times they discovered cancer generalized in my body. The doctors announced of a formal and categorical way my condemnation to death. The technical resources and the hope of the specialists ended. However, was born in me a mysterious and impressive force, because I wanted to live and also I didn't want to disappoint my mother transmitting the fateful news to her, precisely her, who never abandoned me and aided me in everything. But the disease was very strong and dominated my body almost entirely. In several places the skin of my body began to stay insensitive. My mother and my husband in those places they applied massages in order to recover the sensibility. It improved, but at times the places remained asleep. The blood pressure lowered to an alarming level, and because of problems in the veins, I couldn't take injections in them and nor to drink any alcoholic stimulant. My life truly was extinguishing slowly. Several women of the local Presbyterian Church constantly they visited me and took me for the temple in order to pray, and after, they came back with me, although as a matter of fact what I wanted was to frequent the Catholic Church. One day, two of those women after to have told me comfort words said good-bye, and outside of my room, they commented among themselves: "I have great regret for this poor woman, although the life is a precious thing, her disease haven't cure and is killing her family.". I thought: "It is true, why didn't I think before in this?" I prepared a strong dose of potassium cyanide and wrote seven letters: to my mother, my husband, one for each of the four children and one letter for that woman who could be the wife future of my husband.
THE LIGHT OF GOD SHONE – I thought in my father, in my youth, and how to accomplish my sinister plan, when suddenly my husband entered in house, he had come back earlier from work and he said: “Mel! Some thing in me wants us to visit the Catholic Church".
On that same day we visited the Church in Naju. Finding the parish priest, I spoke: "Father, if GOD really exists, I can also affirm that HE is cruel. Why must I drink from this bitter chalice? What did I do to deserve all this "?
The priest answered me:“My daughter, you are receiving an incomparable amount of graces in your body. They are graces full of sufferings and pains and for this reason, very special. I didn't receive nor a little of those GOD'S graces. Believe me and think of this truth that I tell you".
When I heard those words, a quick reflex silenced my lips, while my face manifested itself in an attitude of credibility. I answered with almost inaudible voice: "Amen ".
Until that moment, my body was cold and without life. Suddenly, it began to warm, the circulation of the blood increased, the beats of the heart accelerated and I sweated everywhere. The HOLY GHOST began to work in me.
We prayed in Church and after we said goodbye to the priest, coming back to the house we decided us to join at Catholic religion and with this purpose, we acquire a Bible, a book of prayer and a small image of OUR LADY in the store of the Parish.
In the third day, I heard JESUS' Voice: "Read the Bible, it is MY Live Word ".
Immediately I opened the Sacred Writing and exactly in Gospel of the LORD JESUS CHRIST written by St. Luke (Luke 8.40-48), about the woman was with hemorrhage there is 12 years. Her faith was so great that she said, if she touched the clothing of JESUS she would be cured and in fact this happened when she reached HIM and touched The LORD. In the Bible is written that JESUS told her: "Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go thy way in peace". (Luke 8.48)
In the following verses there is the story from the chief’s daughter of the synagogue who was dead. JESUS said: "Fear not; believe only, and she shall be safe". (Luke 8.50) The chief believed in the word of The LORD and his daughter lived again.
Meditating, I understood that those words were also for me. Thus, alone in my room I spoke with conviction: "LORD, I believe; I believe my GOD, I believe sincerely".
In the following days, we frequented the Parochial Catechism and we studied (my husband and I) the Christian doctrine, getting the knowledge necessary to receive the Baptism, which happened soon in a few weeks.
Then the CREATOR made a great miracle! I was cured of the cancer and of all the evils that infested my body. So happy I have stayed that I didn't know what to do to thank GOD. I was full of satisfaction and very impressed with such great kindness and compassion of the LORD. Being involved by a great emotion I wanted to run, to fly, to climb the top of the highest hill, to be close to the LORD and to shout, to shout without stopping, with all the forces of my heart small and fragile, with the best eagerness and the deepest tenderness of my soul, a loud shout replete of immense love, saying:“I love YOU, I adore YOU, my GOD, light of my life, my love and my everything". It went the way that my poor spirit chose to manifest my sincere joy and my gratefulness to our GOD and our BLESSED MOTHER.
I started to frequent the Catholic Church with assiduity and interest. I entered in the Charismatic Movement and in Mary's Legion, because I wanted to be next of the LORD and of the VIRGIN MOTHER, accomplishing an apostolate in honor and praise of our GOD and OUR LADY. My organism was perfect and my disposition for work was enviable. I established a beauty parlor, in order to collaborate in the family budget. My existence won new life and I was a person full of happiness and ideals.
Ever since JESUS reestablished my health marvelously and on June 30, 1985, supernatural manifestations began, with the tears of our BLESSED MOTHER'S image, also the tears of blood and the spill of perfumed oil that it sprouted from the body of the small image. It followed with the grace that granted me sufferings in opportunities defined by HIM, the stigmas of the passion of the LORD in my feet and in my hands, the terrible pains of the crucifixion, everything by the sinners conversion, and in recompense by the abominable abortions that are accomplished, also in benefit of the souls of purgatory so that they may rise to heaven. At last, the LORD allowed those extraordinary and admirable Eucharistic Miracles. I, a poor and unworthy creature, have the honor of to show in my own mouth, the Body and the live Blood of our adored GOD.
The LORD is my light and salvation. HE is the Absolute Love that it made to be born and to grow the love in our life. It is a beautiful Love, sweet, full of passion, but who demands faithfulness and sacrifice. The love's flower to bloom and to stay more beautiful is necessary to overcome the difficulties daily, even to love the cold weather of the winter and to accept with resignation and courage the pains that visit us unceasingly, because they make us to imitate the martyrs, in the same way as they donated your life for greater honor and glory of the CREATOR. I want to be the LORD'S consoler. I accept all the pains and sacrifices to assuage the deceptions and sadness of the Sacred Heart because of the indifferences and transgressions of our brothers which still didn't find the Light of GOD:
"... Unless the grain of wheat falling into the ground it dies, it remained alone. But if it dies, it will bring forth much fruit. "(John 12.24-25)
The pains of the crucifixion were so great that Julia at times swooned. - Chapel of Naju.
