Shrine of Our Lady of All Nations in Amsterdam
The Story of Our Lady of All Nations:
Exactly 600 years after the Eucharistic Miracle in Amsterdam, on March 25, 1945, Our Lady appeared in Amsterdam to a woman named Ida Peerdeman. This was the first of 56 apparitions, which took place up through 1959. These early messages were apocalyptic in nature and used many Biblical references, and since Ida was a simple person, she did not always understand some of the words such as Paraclete, Meteor, etc.
The messages from 1945-1950 contained prophecies that predicted much of the spiritual warfare of the latter half of the 20th Century.
Then, from 1951-1954, the messages focused more on prayer and on the dogma of Mary, Co-Redemptrix and Mediatrix.
Finally, beginning in a series of messages from 1954-1959, Our Lady appeared to Ida just once a year, on May 31st.

On May 31, 2002 Bishop Jozef Marianus Punt Diocese of Haarlem-Amsterdam gave official approval to the apparitions. Once a local Bishop gives his approval, it does not require any further action from Rome.
Note: In 2020 an article was erroneously published saying that the apparitions had been disapproved…this is not correct. The approval of the appartions stands as valid. You can read the Bishop’s letter of clarification here.
Mass is celebrated daily….check their website for the Mass schedule.
