The Blessed Mother has appeared many times on earth, especially
during humanity's most crucial moments in history. She often chooses
innocent children as her conduit to the rest of the world, usually
giving them messages for mankind that contain pleas for conversion.
We've investigated a variety of apparitions and we are pleased
to present information about some of the ones that, in our opinion,
are the most important.
Present day. Medjugorje, Bosnia-Hercegovina. According to six
visionaries, as well as millions of believers, the Virgin Mary
began appearing in this tiny Balkan village on June 24th, 1981.
As of today, the visionaries have experienced around eight thousand
days of apparitions. Her messages, intended for all humanity, ask
people to place God first in their lives.

1917. Fatima, Portugal. The Virgin Mary appeared to three children
- Lucia, Francisco and Jacinta - on the outskirts of their village.
Mary predicted and warned about World War II and the spread of
Communism. The Miracle of the Sun was witnessed by over 70,000
people. The Catholic Church approved the apparitions, and today
Fatima is one of the most visited Marian shrines in the world.
