|Apparitions of Mary are an event in which the Blessed Mother Mary is believed to have supernaturally appeared to one or more persons. |
Our focus here will be Catholic Church Approved Marian Apparitions.
Marian Apparitions sometimes are reported to recur at the same site over an extended period of time.
In the majority of Marian apparitions only a few people report having witnessed the apparition.
They are often given names based on the town in which they were reported.
Much information and explanations have been written about these occurrences. Bob and Penny Lord have written two books about Apparitions of Mary.
To put it simple terms, Our Lady has shown her love for us has been through her visits to our planet, in the form of Apparitions.
Every one of of Mother Mary's apparitions was for a specific purpose, not for an individual, but for a nation, and sometimes the world.
