Mary’s Balm ingredients is found in the writings of Maria Valtorta and detailed in the volumes of her work ‘The Poem of the Man-God’.
In ‘The Poem of the Man-God’, the ingredients is first mentioned in vol. 1, Maria details the ingredients of a herbal balm that Our Lady Mary uses to treat her husband Joseph, and in vol. 3 to help an injured sailor.
In Vol. III, Our Lady Mary has prepared the herbs into a balm which is sent with the apostles to treat one of the disciples. The book tells of a voyage to Greece when a serious storm threatens their boat and a sailor is seriously injured. The sailor is rescued from being washed overboard by Peter and the disciples apply this balm prepared by Our Lady Mary to a mortal head wound. A miraculous cure took place.
As stated by Matthew in ‘The Poem of the Man God’:
This was the question on my mind, and so my Mary’s Balm journey began, to unashamedly promote Mary, her relationship with her son, Jesus and her ability to call on him both physically and spiritually to assist her children.
My goal for Mary’s Balm, is for Mary the Mother of God be bought to the attention of many believers, agnostics and all in between. That we ask that she brings those using her Balm to the attention of her son, Jesus, requesting their physical suffering may be eased or cured. And, the trust and faith of those turning to Mary’s Balm for help may result in greater knowledge of Our Lady, allowing Mary to lead many to her son, Jesus.
We have done our utmost to produce the best quality balm and now ask that Mary’s Balm is brought to the attention of those with little or no belief and pray that they benefit from its use.
I believe no person of reason or thinker has ever performed a miracle, not even among the saints. He does divine works whosoever surrenders to God. I believe our work is to make Mary’s Balm available. We leave the results to God and pray that the use of Mary’s Balm is beneficial to those using it.
The balm is made, as described by Maria Valtorta, with organic natural herbs combining 7 essential oils: camphor, dittany, resin, clove, laurel, artemisia and lilies. These herbs are all known for their medicinal healing properties and used by many ancient cultures for healing purposes.
Mother Teresa traveled lightly, never taking much more than the clothes on her back. But she always traveled with three books: the Bible, her breviary and the third was ‘The Poem of the Man-God’, by Maria Valtorta. Valtorta’s work is a big text, with five volumes, all similar in thickness to a bible. Such was her conviction of their value that she never went anywhere without them. Her chaplain of some years twice asked her about the Maria Valtorta book. Both times she simply replied: “Read it”.
Pope Pius XII was a bearer of the transcript of the writings of Maria Valtorta. A high-ranking prelate personally handed Pope Pius XII a 12-volume typewritten copy of ‘The Poem of the Man-God’ in 1947. After these volumes were evaluated, he commanded to publish it, saying: “Publish it just as it is. There is no need to give an opinion as to whether it is of supernatural origin. Those who read it will understand. One hears of many visions and revelations. I will not say they are all authentic; but there are some of which it could be said that they are”.
Padre Pio was one of the holiest saints of the 20th Century. His insight into the usefulness of Maria Valtorta’s revelations for spiritual reading is certainly most reliable, as he was a mystic who communicated often with Our Lord and Our Lady. When asked about Maria Valtorta’s ‘The Poem of the Man-God’, he said: “I don’t advise you to read it – I order you to”. Padre Pio was an ardent supporter or Maria Valtorta’s writings and continued to advocate that others experience the writings for themselves.
Answer: No person of reason or thinker has ever performed a miracle, not even among the saints. He does divine works whosoever surrenders to God. We believe our work is to make Mary’s Balm available. We leave the results to God and pray that the use of Mary’s Balm is beneficial to those using it.
