Our Lady of Akita  
For six years starting in 1973, in a remote convent near the city of Akita in Japan, a statue of the Virgin would variously bleed, weep perfumed tears and sweat profusely.
The statue spoke on three occasions to a deaf nun, warning her that God will kill a great part of mankind unless everyone prays daily for the Catholic clergy because priests are about to disobey bishops, and bishops are about to turn on cardinals. 
“The Father will inflict a terrible punishment on all humanity. It will be a punishment greater than the deluge, such as one will never have seen before. Fire will fall from the sky and will wipe out a great part of humanity, the good as well as the bad, sparing neither priests nor faithful. The survivors will find themselves so desolate that they will envy the dead.   Each day recite the prayers of the Rosary. With the Rosary, pray for the Pope, the bishops and priests.” 
In 1988,Cardinal Ratzinger, as Prefect of the Inquisition, formally approved Our Lady of Akita as supernatural and worthy of belief.
