- Sophia Marie Gabriel — The first fifty pages of Supernatural Visions of the Madonna (1981–1991)
Sophia Marie Gabriel aka Sister Marie, Marie Angel, Sophia Richmond, Sophia Paprocski, Zophia Sagatis was a mystic, clairvoyant, and writer. Born in Poland in 1941, her family fled during World War II to the UK, where she lived until her death in 2014. She became a practicing mystic at the age of 14, eventually gaining national attention (well-known enough for Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark to write a song about her in 1981). Occasionally, she would take out full page ads in British newspapers to make her prophecies, the most notable being her prediction that Halley's comet would collide with Jupiter and explode as "a warning from God to all nations and governments that they must reduce the crime epidemic on Earth drastically or face extinction by fireball astroid." She was even featured on the PBS series NOVA in an episode called "The Doomsday Asteroid" (16:25) in 1995.
In 1993, she self-published Supernatural Visions of the Madonna (1981-1991), a phonebook thick, A4-sized full color photography book of mostly Catholic imagery collaged with prophesies, poetry, rants, newspaper clippings, letters from the Royal Family, and an elaborate conspiracy regarding the death of her father. Sister Marie refers to the book (rather accurately) as "A GREAT EPIC FILM OF APOCALYPTIC DIMENSIONS DEALING WITH A SERIOUS PROPHETIC MESSAGE ABOUT THE FUTURE OF HUMANITY, ESPECIALLY BRITAIN EUROPE AND AMERICA." She also claims to have published it to "counteract" Madonna's 1992 coffee table book Sex.
