When Was the Last Time Mary Appeared?
The question of when was the last time Mary appeared is an interesting one. The Vatican hasn’t officially recognized Marian’s apparitions, but the Catholic Church has approved their devotion. It’s unclear precisely when Mary first began appearing, but many Catholics and Orthodox Christians have observed the apparitions. This article will discuss some of the known Marian apparitions. You may also be interested in a recent video from a nun who claimed to see Mary in an apparition.
The first recorded apparition of Mary was in 1858, in Lourdes, France, to a poor, uneducated woman. She was gathering firewood when she saw a beautiful lady. This was the first of several apparitions in the town, and she was surprised to meet the Virgin. She identified her as “The Immaculate Conception” and asked Bernadette to pray for Christian unity and the unification of Easter. After the apparitions stopped, she continued to receive locutions from the Virgin.
The last apparition of Mary took place in 1890. A visionary of the Virgin appeared to Juan Diego, who was an Aztec convert to Christianity. She ordered him to build a shrine at the Tepeyac Hill, now a suburb of Mexico City. The woman called him to collect roses, and the visionary asked him to open his cloak to see her. After the apparition, Beco was converted to Christianity, and a saint was born.
In the mid-1960s, two of the worst fires in American history were caused by drought. One of these fires occurred in Peshtigo, Wisconsin. It was the same drought that led to the Robinsonville chapel being destroyed. The chapel was run by a volunteer who did catechesis mission work in the community. Local families made the trek to the chapel to pray the rosary.
In 2008, Mary first appeared in Medjugorje to non-Catholics. She seemed to the six Herzegovinian children for the first time. The children have reported seeing the Virgin every day since then. During the first apparition, Mary told Beco to put her hands in a water spring. She later said that this spring was to heal all nations, so she could not leave the village.
In 2012, witnesses claimed to have seen Mary on the roof of a church. They said that the apparition was relevant to the ongoing strife in Syria. Our Lady instructed them to pray for peace in the world and harbingers of peace. The witnesses saw the Virgin three times. The last one was captured on film. Until this year, no official apparitions of the Virgin have been credited to the Virgin Mary.
