On November 22, 1982, three women of different faiths Orthodox, Catholicism, Islam stood in prayer around a sickbed in the Soufanieh neighborhood of Damascus. Seeing light, then oil, coming from the Catholic woman’s hands, the Moslem woman urged her to put them on the sick person, who was instantly healed. Thus began the spiritual career of Myrna, a member of the Melkite Greek Catholic Church, then only 18 and recently married to Nicolas Nazzour, of the Antiochan Greek Orthodox Church.

Given Myrna’s state of panic, the first message was given to her on the second apparition.
Second apparition, First message – Saturday, December 18, 1982, 11:37 pm
Remember God, because God is with us.
You know all things and yet you know nothing.
Your knowledge is an incomplete knowledge.
But the day will come when you will know all things the way God knows Me.
Do good to those who do evil.
And do not harm anyone.
I have given you oil more than you have asked for,
but I shall give you something much more powerful than oil.
Repent and have faith, and remember Me in your joy.
Announce My Son the Emmanuel.
He who announces Him is saved, and he who does not announce Him, his faith is vain.
Love one another.
I am not asking for money to give to churches, nor for money to distribute to the poor.
I am asking for love.
Those who distribute their money to the poor and to churches,
but have no love, those are nothing.
I shall visit homes more often, because those who go to church, sometimes, do not go there to pray.
I am not asking you to build Me a church, but a shrine.
Do not turn away anyone who asks for help.
Third apparition, Second message – Saturday, January 8, 1983, 11:37 pm
The Virgin was crying.
She told Myrna: “It’s all right.”
Myrna was also crying, while shouting, “The Virgin is crying!”
At last, the Virgin withdrew, but before disappearing, She smiled softly.
