Argentine bishop finds Marian apparitions authentic

June 06, 2016

An Argentine bishop has said that a series of Marian apparitions in that country are authentic.

Bishop Hector Cardelli of San Nicolas announced that the apparitions of the Virgin Mary to a local woman, and the messages the Virgin conveyed, had been thoroughly investigated and found worthy of belief. "I recognize the supernatural nature of the happy events," he told participants in a pilgrimage to the shrine of Our Lady of the Rosary in San Nicholas, a town west of Buenos Aires.

The apparitions began in 1983, to a woman named Gladys Quiroga de Motta. Eventually she received a total of 68 messages, warning of severe attacks on the Church and calling for fasting, prayer, and penance. The messages were accompanied by extraordinary phenomena; many local residents reported that their rosaries began to glow as they prayed, while the seer, Gladys Quiroga de Motta, reportedly received the stigmata. There have been several reports of physical healings at the site of the apparitions.
