Properties of the number 101
The symbolism of 101 would be the same as the number 11, according to R. Allendy, "with a difference of two degrees between the two units considered: the Whole and the under-part".
In 1973, in Akita in Japan, the Virgin Mary appeared to Sister Agnes Sasagawa and for this day she received daily messages in these appearances. The statue of her convent, an exact copy of the Our-Lady image of all Nations, poured tears on 101 occasions. Just like the appearances in Amsterdam, the messages of Sister Agnes refer to the Virgin Mary like redeemer with the Christ. One day, her guardian angel appeared to her with a Bible opened. When Sister Agnes recognized the passage of chapter 3, verse 15 of the book of the Genesis, the angel explained to her: "There is a meaning to the number 101. It means that the sin has entered in the world by a woman and it is by a woman that will come the salvation. The zero between the two 1, represents the God eternal, being of all eternity until the eternity. The first 1 represents Eve and the second, the Virgin Mary." The Father Yasuda, the spiritual director of Sister Agnes, commented that this passage of the Genesis is considered as the first gleam of the salvation, the first promise of a Saviour, made by God. It is also the first verse of the Bible referring to the Immaculate Conception of Mary, who never was under the domination of Satan.
