1932-1933 "History of the Miraculous Medal." The Catholic Company. Web. 16 Jan. 2013. Marian apparitions have happened all over the world to individuals or small groups of people living in different time periods, but every apparition of Our Lady comes with a message that lives eternally and unites us as Catholics. How apparitions are approved "Vatican Publishes Rules for Verifying Marian Apparitions." CNS. Catholic News. Web. 16 Jan. 2013. Catechism of the Catholic Church. United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. Web. 16 Jan. 2013 "Frequently Asked Questions: Marian Apparitions." Catholic Doors Ministry. Web. 16 Jan. 2013 • Takes a very long time, sometimes hundreds of years • If bishop isn’t sure, the investigation is brought to the country's bishops' conference; If they are still not sure, the matter is turned over to the pope, who delegates the doctrinal congregation to step in & gives advice or appoints others to investigate. • The local bishop sets up a commission of experts (theologians, canonists, psychologists and doctors) to help him determine the facts, the mental, moral and spiritual wholesomeness & seriousness of the visionary; assure message & testimony are free from theological and doctrinal error. What is the purpose of apparitions? God wants to reveal His truths to His people. (CCC 66)
Apparitions help us grow closer to God. (CCC 66)
The Church uses her wisdom & "sensus fidelium" (sense of faith) to approve apparitions. (CCC 67) http://www.marypages.com/first1.htm Feast day: November 27 St. Catherine Laboure Our Lady's Medal “O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee” Father
Aladel Miracles http://campus.udayton.edu/mary/meditations/Apr99.html Lucia, Jacinta, & Francisco Angel of Peace “O my Jesus, forgive us, save us from the fire of hell. Lead all souls to heaven, especially those who are most in need.” Apparitions Secrets Miracle of the Sun The Rosary the Mother of God, the Queen of Heaven http://365rosaries.blogspot.com/2010/12/our-lady-of-beauraing-pray-always.html Feast day: August 22 Children Apparitions Mary's
Message Mariette Beco http://www.miraclehunter.com/marian_apparitions/approved_apparitions/banneaux/index.html Feast day: May31 Fr. Jamin "I am the Mother of the Savior, the Mother of God. Pray very much." Spring of Healing Her father's conversion Witnesses & Chapel "Behold, you have heard my mandate, my humble son; go and put forth all your effort.” “On this spot I wish a church built – a privileged sanctuary, wherein many sinners will repent." http://catholicfire.blogspot.com/2012/02/our-lady-of-lourdes-has-special-place.html Feast day: February 11 http://www.shrineofourladyofgoodhelp.com/htmPages/g_hst_p1.html http://ourladystears.blogspot.com/2008/12/our-lady-of-kibeho-i.html While there are many alleged apparitions of Mary, apparitions must go through an authenticating process involving bishops, the Pope, & a lot of time.
Mary appears to people of all ages & backgrounds to spread the good news of God, help those who are troubled, & cause those who have lost their faith to find it again. Conclusion “Hail to Thee, Mary Most Holy Temple and Sacrarium of the Most Holy Trinity” Bernadette Soubirous Grotto of Massabielle "I do not promise to make you happy in this world, but in the next." The fountain Sisters of Nevers Adele Brise "Make a general confession and offer Communion for the conversion of sinners. If they do not convert and do penance, my Son will be obliged to punish them." Though apparitions have occurred at different times in history, we must remember that Mary is always praying for us & we should take into serious account her messages that still apply to everyone in the universal Church.
