Our Lady of Knock


At least 15 people saw the exact same thing on the night of August 21, 1879, in the small, suffering Irish village of Knock. Judith Campbell was there and shared her story: "I saw outside the chapel ... three figures representing St. Joseph, St. John and the Blessed Virgin Mary; also an altar, and the likeness of a lamb on it, with a cross at the back of the lamb." Our Lady wore white robes, with a gold rose upon her forehead and a brilliant gold crown on her head. Within weeks, an inquiry into the apparition deemed the reports truthful.
