Our Lady of All Nations
March 25 was the Feast of the Annunciation. On this particular year, 1945, it fell on Palm Sunday. This is such an important season in our Church. But in those times, during the final days of the war, thoughts were not focused on Palm Sunday, or the Feast of the Annunciation, or even Easter, for that matter. Ida Peerdeman, the woman to whom Our Lady chose to come, called it a "hunger winter."
