Preface to the second edition of the book
More than five years have passed since the first edition of this book, in October 2011. It’s a notable period if related to the amount of further apparitions and revelations of the Holy Virgin “Bride of the Family” happened during this time span. For this reason, it was necessary to expand the text, which is now updated till the latest events in May 2017.
In the first edition each message was introduced by a comment, while in this edition messages come first, so that the Virgin’s words may have more emphasis also graphically. Comments are aimed simply to contribute to the detailed study of the different topics, waiting for the Church’s authoritative and binding pronouncement on them.
The sequence of events and messages reflects the chronological order, so that it could be easier comprehend how the whole affair is developing.
The Appendix has been enhanced with some messages concerning Giulio, which help to understand better some aspects of his particular spiritual experience. Moreover, the Appendix contains also some prayers of the Association Sposa di Sion. They underline the way in which these “particular revelations” nourish the daily prayer and the spirituality of individuals and families. The auspice is that this new edition of Vidi scendere la Sposa may contribute, at least a bit or at least for someone, to support the effort for the “new evangelization” promoted by the Church in this age, to strengthen the unity of families and to promote the cause of peace in the Middle East and all over the world.
Heartfelt thanks to all of those who, in different ways, contributed for the success of this new edition, patiently and with dedication.
