The Appearances of the Blessed Virgin


May 13 | June 13 | July 13 | August 13 & 19 | September 13 | October 13 | Further Appearances


In 1917, the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to the three children six times between May 13 and October 13. She had been sent by God with a very special message for every man, woman, and child on earth.

The heavenly Lady explained to the children that war is a punishment for sin and warned that if men did not amend their lives, then God would further punish the world for its disobedience to His Will by means of war, famine, and the persecution of the Church, the Holy Father, and the Catholic faithful.

Our Lady then prophesied that Russia would be God's chosen instrument of chastisement, spreading its errors throughout the world. Errors such as:

  • Legalization of Abortion
  • Destruction of the family
  • Atheism
  • Secularism
  • Anti-Christian ideas

Russia would be responsible for promoting and conducting wars leading to the annihilation of nations as well as causing the persecution of Catholic and Christian faithful everywhere.

But Our Lady’s message was not without hope. On the contrary, Her message is full of hope… our only hope. For She promised that Heaven would grant peace to the entire world if Her requests for prayer, reparation, and consecration were heard and obeyed.

To confirm all that She had said and to prove that it was indeed the Mother of God who was appearing, God performed what has become known as “The Miracle of the Sun” on October 13, 1917. It was witnessed by over 70,000 people who had gathered to see the miracle first-hand as well as by numerous others from the surrounding towns and villages.
