Our Lady emanates frosts in Caracas Venezuela
Silver frost appears on Our Lady
January 30, 2020 - Reported [here] and [here]. Rough translation from Spanish. A Marian demonstration took place in the Virgen de la Dulce Espera located in the parish house of the church of the Ascension of the Lord of Cumbres de Curumo, Baruta municipality. Since last Wednesday he began to frost, his devotees say that it is a miracle.
Lisbeth Arena, lady in charge of cleaning in the parish house, was the one who noticed the frost on the feet, head and dress of the image of the Virgin and alerted Father Enrique Laña about what was happening. The parishioners reported that, unlike the last two days when the frost was silver, this Friday the Virgin of La Dulce Espera began to frost red. The parishioners shared their joy at the image with a prayer.
The devotees of the Mystical Rose say that “when the Virgin silver frost demonstrated the magnanimity of God and all that is asked of her, she will be conceived through her intersection,” said César Ramis, a temple seminarian. "When the frost is red, it means penance and prayer," which Ramis interprets as "the Virgin is asking Venezuelans to join us in prayer."
The ecclesiastical authorities recommend keeping calm and waiting for official information about this Marian manifestation that took place in the church of Cumbres de Curumo.
Some parishioners approached the parish and photographed the Sweet Hope, as it is also known, and then distributed the graphics on social networks, causing deep motivation among those who actually see a manifestation of the Mother of God.
Father “Kike” Alaña, pastor of this community, asked to remain calm and wait for the authorities of the Caracas church to issue official information. In this regard, he informed the [Lay Catholic Report] that Cardinal Baltazar Enrique Porras Cardozo, Apostolic Administrator of Caracas, recommended keeping the image under shelter to follow up and determine what might be happening.
The priest explained that the image of the Sweet Wait was a gift he received years ago, and represents the pregnant Virgin Mary. He stressed that this Marian manifestation occurs at a special time for the clergy of the Archdiocese of Caracas, since their priests are in retreat accompanied by Cardinal Porras.
It's not the first time.
In Venezuela, since 1993, there are some manifestations of frosts linked to religious events, and in some cases scientific studies have been conducted. For scholars it is a phenomenon that cannot be considered so lightly, but it must also be handled wisely to avoid exaggerations or deviations in faith.
Hence, an adequate study can help in the understanding of this phenomenon linked to the presence of the Virgin Mary. For now, it will be enough to continue praying and waiting for the official information of the church; The important thing is to strengthen faith and practice charity.
The invocation of the Virgin of the Sweet Wait is known since the fifth century, and is related to the devotion to the motherhood of the Virgin Mary, to the Advent or waiting for the Nativity of Christ. It is also known as Virgin of Hope.
