Ida Peerdeman’s “Eucharistic Experience”
The apparitions of the Lady of All Nations to Ida Peerdeman have not been denounced by the Church and so, on Friday, July 17, 1992, when I was in Amsterdam for a meeting of the Scientific Committee of the World Aids Foundation, I visited the home and private chapel of Ida, then in her late eighties. As I entered the hallway she told me that the day of my visit was the anniversary of her “Eucharistic experience,” which occurred in 1958 when, before the celebration of the Mass began, she suddenly saw a huge and almost blindingly white Host in front of the altar: “It was white fire – magnificent.” The vision slowly faded away and the altar was then bathed in a beautiful light. It all lasted for a moment.
