call to prayer
On 7 October 2002 the Blessed Mother entrusted “three
keys” to me. It was Our Lady’s wish to keep their contents secret.
These keys were intended solely for the Holy Father in Rome. Without
divulging their content, I am informing you that events pertaining
to these keys have begun to take place. IN LIGHT OF CURRENT EVENTS I
ASK YOU TO PRAY ESPECIALLY FOR THE HOLY FATHER, FOR PRIESTS AND THE
CHURCH. Let us gaze upon Our Lord Jesus and His Mother. I implore
you to confront hatred and violence with God’s armour: with love and
prayer. I feel obliged to write that we Christians should now unite
in prayer in a special way. Let us not waste any precious time.
Through prayer we may not be able to turn everything to good, but
many things we can.
It has always been Our Lady’s wish to protect the
Pope, priests and the Church. If Her messages continue to be
ignored, the pain of the Church will be the greater. The last thing
I want to do is to create a sense of panic. This would in any case
Please do not simply follow events in the media,
instead begin to pray. Organise yourselves into prayer groups to the
best of your abilities. Then do that which God desires and act
responsibly. I would particularly recommend the act of consecration
to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Let us all gather under the
protective mantle of the Immaculate One. May She intercede for us
all so that our deafness to the Divine Will might be healed.

“Form small blue oases of prayer!”
Our Lady asks that small blue oases of prayer be formed and she
constantly calls us to prayer. She also mentions several request for
prayer which she asks us to take to heart.
September 2000: “Pray for the children, because darkness is in the
world. You, who go through this tribulation, please note that the
tears I shed are especially intended for Germany. Until I have
fortified my empire completely in love, this, my beloved country,
will have to bear lots of suffering. But when I see Germany, I see
that the hearts of the people have turned away from my Son. Do not
think that the revelations I gave to you in Fatima are obsolete. But
look, it is necessary for you to pray, to beseech us desperately.
You calm my Son.”
The Blessed Mother asks us to come together in small prayer groups.
We are to follow priests who love Our Lady and who are close to her.
It would also be helpful to find a Marian priest to accompany the
blue oasis of prayer. Our Lady promises to be wholly present in her
blue oases of prayer and to pour into them her own blessings and
those of her beloved Son.
Our Lady gives no further indication regarding the structure and
content of the blue oasis prayer groups. It would make sense,
however, if each blue oasis group met at least once a month for
prayer. Our Lady emphasises the value and healing power of the
rosary. In addition one might draw on the prayers and songs in the
blue Sievernich prayer book, each one of which is specifically
desired by the Blessed Mother. Saint Teresa of Avila’s prayers could
also be used from the booklet in which they are printed. The red
prayer book ‘Adoremus’ which we use in Sievernich is also enriching.
Personal prayer intentions should also be accommodated in these
prayer oases. However it is equally important to fulfil the prayer
wishes of Our Lady. The Blessed Mother requests prayer for nations,
that they may not perish, for peace, for individual families and the
family in general as well as for children. We should pray for those
who cannot find the way to her beloved divine Son and especially for
those who do not love her Son. Indeed, we should even pray for our
enemies. She asks for prayers for the Church, the Holy Father, for
priests, “who are constantly being troubled by darkness and
temptation”, and for religious. We are especially invited to pray
for Germany and its shepherds.
Prayer for Pope Benedict XVI and the Church is very important. Under
no circumstances should we forget to pray that God’s plans for
Sievernich will be realised. Without prayer we will not be able to
overcome the obstacles facing the construction of the Spiritual
Centre or Satan’s anger.
The Blessed Mother also reminds us that prayer without good works is
useless. Let us therefore not forget to carry out good deeds.
Please inform the Blue Oasis of Prayer, Postfach 501108, D-KOLN,
should you wish to found a small prayer group.
Our Lady’s call to prayer in Sievernich
send My Light down to you, My Beams of Light surround you, you, My
pearls of prayer. Pray and remain loyal to My Son. The world does
not have a high regard for prayer and it is not valued highly. But,
dear souls, is it not prayer alone that can heal you? The grace of
prayer is not to be found anywhere else, it can be found in prayer
only. Talk to the Father, the Son, the Mother, if you pray. Be aware
of talking to them. Experience and practise this deep, warm, and
sincere kind of communication every day. I put My Song into your
souls, everybody receives My Grace from you. I ask you in particular
to pray for the members of your families, so I can enter into their
hearts. With your assistance I will find a way to their hearts, if
Dear children, there are many temptations, there are many things,
that appear to be obstacles, that keep you from praying. Call on Me,
and I shall tread on the snake’s head. Remember Me in your
temptations, appeal to Me. I will intercede for you with My Son,
Jesus Christ, and He won’t be able to refuse My prayers and will
rescue you from the darkness.
Children, call Me when you are in need. I hear you, even if you
think that I am not by your side. I am by your side. I am asking
you, children, to please pray, and pray, and pray. It does not
matter if I have to tell you over and over again: please pray! What
I am asking you to do is important. Prayer makes you holy, and My
Divine Son can come and live in you.
Children, I am asking you, please pray for Germany! Please pray for
My beloved sons, the priests! Pray for the brothers and sisters in
the religious orders! My dear sons and priests, My dear sisters and
brothers of the religious orders, be faithful to the church! Do not
leave the way My Divine Son Jesus has shown you. Dear children, be
faithful to My Son Jesus.
children, your prayers dry away my tears. Oh children, pray! Do not
only say the words, pray with all your heart. Pray like this, so I
can be with you entirely. This is the will of the Father in Heaven,
this is the will of My Divine Son Jesus Christ. Become pearls of
prayer, My children, do not give up! …
Children, I love you. Pray, pray for Germany so it will not get
Children, even if you should consider it superfluous, I will mention
this time and again: by your pure prayers from the heart you,
children, can save the world! It depends on you whether I distribute
my graces, which are the graces of my divine Son, Jesus. Hear my
words: pray! pray! pray!
Dear children, pray, pray, pray! Pray and do penance so that people
will no longer insult my beloved divine Son so frequently! How often
His love is rejected. I have called you so that His grace can be
bestowed on you.
Today I want to say good-bye to you. I shall always be with you in
this place. I have said everything. Live the gospel and remember my
words. My beloved Son Jesus sent me to you, that you may become
living witnesses of His Love. Pray, love and do that which my Son
Jesus tells you, for the Word is eternal and living. Allow it to
live in your hearts. I would love to see you all again in heaven.
Manuela Strack and Cardinal
Ratzinger, the present Pope Benedict XVI (at a meeting held on 12th
February 2004 at Campo Santo Teutonico in Rome)
Invitation to a “perpetual rosary” for Pope Benedict XVI.
2 May 2005, the Blessed Mother said during her apparition in
“…your prayers have drawn graces from heaven. My dear Son gave you
John Paul II and Benedict XVI. This is my Son’s answer to your
prayers, … Pray for the Church, this is very important!...”
This message indicates clearly how powerful is the prayer of
humankind and how important it is to pray not only for the Church
but also for the Holy Father. The Church is the Body of Christ. She
can become effective and fruitful only through and with Christ.
Thus, the Holy Father, as Christ’s representative on earth, will be
unable in these most challenging times to effect anything without
God’s help. We must therefore ask for this help in prayer.
3 October 2005, Our Lady appeared for the last time.
During the apparition Saint Benedict of Nursia, whose name the Holy
Father bears, also appeared for the first time ever.
appears that there is a special link between the new Pope and
Sievernich. Pope Benedict XVI was given to us as a result of our
prayers. This adds another dimension to his being “Our Pope”. This
also means that we have a particular responsibility for him. For
this reason we wish to support him with our prayers throughout his
call on all the faithful who feel an allegiance to the Blue Oasis of
Prayer in Sievernich, to accompany our Pope Benedict XVI’s
pontificate with a perpetual rosary.
You are invited to form a continuous prayer chain to help the Pope
in the difficulties and responsibilities of his office.
order to secure as many prayer volunteers as possible, it will be
left up to each individual when and how much he or she wishes to
pray. We have consciously avoided over-ambitious prayer goals. Feel
free to pray this rosary alone at home or within a group. Should you
be constrained by work commitments, individual decades prayed to fit
in with your timetable are fine. It is vital however, that we begin
this prayer of grace. If sufficient prayer participants are found
worldwide, then a perpetual rosary will surely develop.
Should you wish to participate in the “perpetual rosary”, I would
ask you to send your enrolment details to the following address: Die
Blaue Gebetsoase, Postfach 50 11 08, D-Köln.
22 August 2005 the Vatican wrote the following letter to the Blue
Oasis of Prayer:
“The State secretariat of the Holy See acknowledges receipt of your
kind letter of 6 May in which you assure the Holy Father
Pope Benedict XVI of your prayers and in which together with others
you offer to commend his particular intentions to God.
thank you on his behalf for this gesture of solidarity with Peter’s
successor and particularly for your prayers. Beside the Holy
Father’s published monthly prayer intentions, the following
necessitate the fervent prayers of the faithful: that the 20th
World Youth Day may bear lasting fruit; that faith might be renewed
in young people; that there might be an awakening of religious
vocation in those called to serve Christ and the Church
wholeheartedly; in addition prayers are needed for the strengthening
of the Christian family, for world peace and for Christian unity.
Through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mother of
God, Pope Benedict XVI invokes upon you God’s abundant blessing.”
