Pilgrims are flooding Amsterdam without attracting much attention. People from all over the world visit the Chapel of The Lady of all Nations. The Chapel is hidden in the extension of an expensive villa, given to the cause by Gertrude Brenninkmeijer, member of the wealthiest family in the Netherlands and a true believer.

The Lady of all Nations, or as most people know her: Mary, came to Ida Peerdeman (1905-1996) in an apparition for the first time when she was 12 years old.

During her life Ida Peerdeman was visited by Mary 56 times. Although not commonly known in the Netherlands, you could compare the magnitude of this apparition with that of Lourdes. Journalists and devotees even refer to Amsterdam as “Lourdes by the Amstel”.

When it comes to Spirituality, nobody can say what is real and what’s not, but in this work Eva van Ooijen tries to believe.
