Luz de Maria
The best introduction to Luz de Maria is found on her official website here: https://revelacionesmarianas.com/ingles/luz_de_maria.html
Luz de Maria de Bonilla was born in Costa Rica and grew up in a devout Catholic family. As a child, she received visits from Our Lady and Luz de Maria’s guardian angel. Her name is providential; it is translated as “light of Mary.” She presently lives in Argentina and is a wife, a mother of eight children, and a third-order Augustinian.
This private revelation, comprised primarily of inner locutions and visions, formally began in 1991. Now that it is clear to many that we are living in the end times, Luz de Maria – an end times prophet – is becoming more and more well-known as she receives regular messages from Jesus, Our Lady, and St. Michael. Now, according to heaven’s desire, she is spreading the messages to the world (she was called by God to be silent until the right time). Both Divine Justice and Divine Mercy are present in the messages, along with Divine Love and the hope for what will follow the pre-Tribulation – in which we are living – and the soon-to-come Tribulation when the Antichrist reigns. Thus, as with the messages Jesus gives to John Leary, the reader of these messages is not left simply depressed or despairing after reading them.
An early group that supported her has grown. Now there is a group of lay supporters ranging from adults to children in different countries who live out and promote the messages given through her. The messages were collected and put in a book, Thy Kingdom Come, which received an Imprimatur (see below).

Solemnity of the Patriarch Saint Joseph
The volumes that contain “PRIVATE REVELATION” from heaven, given to Luz de Maria from the year 2009 to the present time, have been given to me for the respective ecclesiastic approval. I have reviewed with faith and interest these volumes entitled, THY KINGDOM COME, and have come to conclusion that they are a call to humanity to return to the path that leads to eternal life, and that these messages are an exhortation from heaven in these times in which man must be careful not to stray from the Divine Word.
In each revelation given to Luz de Maria, Our Lord Jesus Christ and the Blessed Virgin Mary guide the steps, the work, and the actions of the people of God in these times in which humanity needs to return to the teachings contained in Holy Scripture.
The messages in these volumes are a treatise of spirituality, divine wisdom, and morality for those who welcome them with faith and humility, so I recommend them for you to read, meditate upon, and put into practice.
I DECLARE that I have not found any doctrinal error that attempts against the faith, morality and good habits, for which I grant these publications the IMPRIMATUR. Together with my blessing, I express my best wishes for the “Words of Heaven” contained here to resonate in every creature of good will. I ask the Virgin Mary, Mother of God and Our Mother, to intercede for us so that the will of God be fulfilled “. . . on Earth as it is in heaven (Mt. 6:10).”

Head Bishop of Estelí, Nicaragua
In addition to the regular ecstasies, she experiences episodes of the stigmata (the five wounds of Jesus) that completely heal afterward. There are heavenly aromas. Also, some of her holy images of Jesus and Our Lady shed tears (“lacrimations”) of oil and blood (as revealed to the messenger Christina Gallagher, Our Lady sheds tears of blood – the times being what they are); many miracles have resulted for those who were present at the times Luz de Maria has received the stigmata.
She has had the same regular confessor since the beginning of the supernatural phenomena, and several other priests advise her, though Jesus said: “I am your true spiritual director.” According to her website: “Father Jose Maria Fernandez Rojas, who from the beginning of the manifestations has been beside her as her confessor, has also accompanied her prayer group of which three women religious have been an inseparable part since the Cenacle was formed 24 years ago, with one of these women religious having a degree in theology, the strictest observance and analysis of the revealed word has been maintained.”
Our Lady has revealed a new title and image of Herself to Luz de Maria: “Queen and Mother of the End Times.” This, too, has received an Imprimatur (see below).

NEW INVOCATION OF THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY
“QUEEN AND MOTHER OF THE END TIMES”
On Monday, August 28, in the Year of Our Lord 2006, a new invocation of the Blessed Virgin Mary was revealed by our Lord Jesus Christ to Luz de Maria under the title of “QUEEN AND MOTHER OF THE END TIMES.” MOST OF THE INVOCATIONS TO THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY ARE GATHERED IN ONE SINGLE IMAGE THAT REPRESENTS THEM.
Recently, the Blessed Mother has dictated a prayer for all of God’s people with which she invites us to invoke her, especially in these times of great tribulation and confusion inside and outside the Church.
Grateful to Heaven for such a great heavenly gift, we exhort God’s people to accept with faith and gratitude this divine help that springs from the loving Will of God, who wants to protect us all in the present and the future through the maternal help of the “Queen and Mother of the end times.”
I grant the “imprimatur” to this new invocation, to the prayer with which we can pray to her with trust and to the representation or image that artistically manifests the vision received by Luz de Maria. At the same time, I invite all to the novena of preparation for the feast of our QUEEN AND MOTHER OF THE END TIMES that will be held on August 28th.

Here is another Imprimatur he gave regarding Luz de Maria:
Office of the Bishop
CONSECRATION TO THE IMMACULATE HEART
OF THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY
LUZ DE MARIA, AUGUST 2011
I ………… give myself, Mother, to Your protection and to Your guidance;
I do not want to walk alone in the midst of the storm of this world.
I present myself before You, Mother of Divine Love, with my empty hands,
but with my heart filled with love and hope in Your intercession.
I ask You to teach me to love the Most Holy Trinity with Your very Love,
so that I may not be indifferent to Its calls, nor indifferent to mankind.
Take my mind, my thoughts, my consciousness and unconsciousness,
my heart, my desires, my expectations, and unify my being in the Trinitarian Will,
as You did, so that the Word of Your Son may not fall on arid ground.
Mother, united to the Church, the Mystical Body of Christ: bleeding
and despised in this moment of darkness,
I raise my pleading voice to You so that the discord among men
and the nations may be annihilated by Your Motherly Love.
SOLEMNLY I CONSECRATE TO YOU TODAY, BLESSED MOTHER, MY ENTIRE LIFE FROM MY BIRTH. WITH FULL USE OF MY FREEDOM, I REJECT THE DEVIL AND ALL HIS MACHINATIONS AND I GIVE MYSELF TO YOUR IMMACULATE HEART. TAKE ME BY YOUR HAND FROM THIS MOMENT ON, AND AT THE HOUR OF MY DEATH, PRESENT ME BEFORE YOUR DIVINE SON.
Allow, Mother of Goodness, that this, my consecration,
be carried in the hands of the Angels to every heart
so that it may be repeated to infinity in each human being.

This private revelation is ongoing, and no decision has been made regarding it, so these Imprimaturs are most helpful in discerning. Bishops do not give Imprimaturs lightly. As far as Imprimaturs are concerned, the Church does not say they have to be given by the local bishop. Imprimaturs are practically sure signs of future approval of a private revelation. They are given very rarely before a local diocese has finished its investigation…
Unfortunately, an American author attacked the messages given to Luz de Maria regarding Our Lady’s directive to use “Oil of the Good Samaritan” to protect against “great plagues” that would be coming (message of June 23, 2016). Jesus told Luz de Maria that she would be persecuted. Mark Mallett handily responded by exposing the weakness of this attack here: https://www.markmallett.com/blog/the-real-witchcraft/ . This prophecy came to pass in 2020 with the outbreak of the novel coronavirus, but other plagues will follow since Our Lady used the plural: “plagues.” Another related, ongoing prophecy starting in 2010 was that China would bring calamity/illness to the world…
What has been revealed to her is coming true. To cite just one more poignant example, Luz de Maria revealed the attack on New York’s Twin Towers eight days beforehand. Now, heaven is revealing a multitude of future calamities with alarming precision. Heaven is doing so with the hope that we will not despair but draw close to God, who alone can ultimately help us in these times. Luz means light…
Above are some points that needed to be made, but a first-hand history of this private revelation is found here on Luz de Maria’s official website: https://www.revelacionesmarianas.com/en/luzenglish.html
