The story of the Blue Book is unusual. In the late 1980s and early 1990s, the mentally impaired brother, of an English Catholic Lady called Olive Dawson, received spiritual messages from the Virgin Mary and quoted them at very regular intervals and with utmost precision. The genesis of the little Blue Book seems mysterious and requires explanation: A young man, who did not correspond to the normal image of knowledge and learning, was able to communicate hundreds of messages in the most precise manner. Olive Dawson, his older sister, then began to write down these messages, compiled them in the the little blue book and began to publish them for a broader audience.
Before the book received the official declaration of no objection (Nihil Obstat) from the Catholic Church on March 22nd, 2000, on behalf of Father Brendan Leahy, the censor of the Dublin diocese, there was considerable criticism on the Internet regarding these messages. Self-declared ecumenical experts suspected that the messages were ill suited for distribution. This criticism was based primarily on three factors:
For one, the sister of the recipient of the messages, Olive Dawson, claimed that she lived only on water and the Holy Eucharist. Furthermore, the critics doubted the mental competence of the recipient. In addition, funds from the English charity are said to have been misappropriated by an unofficial member of the charity. These criticisms can still be followed online today. Despite all this criticism, numerous people and groups began using the little blue book to advance their lives and experience more inner joy in the United Kingdom and America.
Several years later “Our Lady’s Messages of Mercy to the World” has spread to many other European countries notably Germany as well as India, Nigeria, the Philippines as well as many other locations.
OLMOMS e.V, a registered German Charity, believes that it makes sense to confront these misgivings in a transparent manner. Based on thousands of testimonials we are convinced without the slightest doubt, that Our Lady’s messages convey hope and love and provide solutions for those souls experiencing challenges, seeking fulfillment and true happiness even in the most difficult times.
