What does she want to tell us?

Over the course of history, the Blessed Virgin has visited mankind at particular sites around the world. Her message is Praying for the world and its conversion. Her visitation always have specific message. Our Blessed Virgin Mary is an Intercessor. In any of her Apparition, She will always say, Pray that God have mercy on the world.

People Visited

Children have been the only people that Our Blessed Virgin Mary have visited often times. The children have always described her at first simply as “a Lady”.  Her apparition in Zeitun, Egypt, was different since thousands of people witnessed it; Catholic, Orthodox, Protestant, Muslim, and unbelievers.

“Marian Apparition” not “Private Revelation”

According to Catholic Church doctrine, the era of “public revelation” ended with the death of the last Apostle. Private revelation is giving to unapproved Marian apparition. It  is the authentic nature that makes it apparition. Concerning such revelations, we read in the Catechism of the Catholic Church:

They do not belong, however, to the deposit of faith. It is not their role to improve or complete Christ’s definitive Revelation, but to help live more fully by it in a certain period of history. Guided by the Magisterium of the Church, the sensus fidelium knows how to discern and welcome in these revelations whatever constitutes an authentic call of Christ or his saints to the Church. (CCC, 67)

Following a thorough investigation according to specific norms outlined by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, the Church will confirm an authentic apparition as “worthy of belief,” but belief is never required by divine faith.

Church Stand

The Holy See has officially approved at least 13 apparitions of the Blessed Virgin, including those at Guadalupe (Mexico), Saint-Étienne-le-Laus, Paris (Rue du Bac, Miraculous Medal), La Salette (France), Lourdes (France), Fatima (Portugal), Pontmain, Beauraing, and Banneux.
