What are Marian Apparitions?
Marian apparitions are known as apparitions of the Blessed Virgin Mary, descending from heaven to earth. These apparitions are often associated with some type of message that Our Lady wants to communicate and, depending on the nature of her visit, can range from a short apparition to several over the years. There is always at least one witness to an apparition, and it is not uncommon for the witness to later become a saint or holy figure within the Church.
Throughout the history of the Church there have been many reports and claims of Marian apparitions. However, the twenty-six that have been approved as genuine and trustworthy are spread all over the world, from France, Spain, Japan, to Egypt.
