APPARITION OF OUR LADY OF CARAVAGGIO


Our Lady of Caravaggio is a reported apparition of the Virgin Mary at Caravaggio, Italy in 1432. The apparition was reported by Gianetta Varoli, an Italian peasant, whose husband suffered from alcoholism. On May 26, 1432, at five o'clock in the evening Giannetta Varoli, age 32, wore bundles of grass for her animals on the road to Misano. Our Lady appeared as a beautiful and admirable Lady, dressed in a blue dress and her head covered with a white veil. Our Lady said:

" Do not be afraid, daughter, because I am here really. Stop and knelt in prayer. Now, do what I want from you. Listen carefully and keep in mind, because I want that you to report anywhere you can be with your mouth or do others say that. "

The Lady said with tears in her eyes and hands open as afflicted:

" The Most High Almighty, my Son, wanted to destroy this Earth because of the iniquity of men, because they do what is evil every day and fall into sin by sin. But for seven years, I prayed mercy to the Son for their sins. Therefore, I want you to tell each and every one who you must fast on bread and water every Friday in honor of my Son, and that, after vespers, celebrate me every Saturday for devotion. That must be dedicated to me this half a day as gratitude for the many and great favors that you received from my Son through my intercession. "

Jeannette said:

" People will not believe me. "

Our Lady said:

" Arise, do not be afraid. You must relate what I ordered. I will confirm your words with signs so large that no one will doubt you've spoken the truth. "

She announced peace between two states in war and expressed a wish for reunification between the Churches of the East and West.
As a memento of her apparition Mary left an imprint of her feet on the stone on which she stood. From under the stone a spring began to flow. The site soon became a place of pilgrimage and attracts pilgrims to this day.
