Did the Virgin Mary appear in the sky above Knock Shrine?
Locals in Co Mayo claim to have seen a vision of the Virgin Mary appear in the sky.
It happened after a teenager had been told to expect the vision at Knock Shrine over the weekend.
Knock Shrine is a pilgrimage site where the Virgin Mary is said to have appeared in 1879. Now, 138 years later, she is said to have returned.
Thousands of people heard about the teenager’s message and headed to Knock to see the vision for themselves.
They were expecting to see the Virgin Mary at around 3pm on Saturday. However, it seemed they were set to go home disappointed as the vision didn’t seem to have appeared.
That is until Martina Joyce looked at a picture on her daughter’s phone and realised that maybe Mary had appeared after all.
Martina told the Irish Mirror: “My daughter took a pic of the blessed lady at Knock last Saturday.”
Another social media user, Biddy Connors, posted a video online claiming to show what worshippers with the caption: “Our lady appeared in knock today. Astonishing Never get over what I seen. Please watch.”
Take a look at the video below.
