Knock in shambles after 'apparition'
Meanwhile, Coleman was driven away, insisting that Our Lady had appeared to him but that he wouldn’t reveal her message until later.
Then, on Monday he said the apparition told him that she hoped her message of peace would be “given around the globe in different ways” to all her faithful.
Coleman also said she told him, “Thank you for responding to my call. I am so happy. I smile on this day 31st October 2009 at my beloved Knock. I wish to thank all the people who came today to pray, to give thanks to my beloved Father God the Almighty.
“I am the Immaculate Heart, mother of all my children, mother of all God’s children. I am the Immaculate Conception. I am Queen of the Heavens. I am Queen of the Earth.
“I will glorify my father’s name through prayer from the people who come to pray. I ask for conversion many times. I ask for peace. I ask for prayers every day for my son’s apostles. I pray that they will listen. I pray and I ask for unification of the faith across the globe. I pray that this message has been listened to. That it has been given around the globe in different ways to all my faithful.”
“I thank all my children today for responding. I will visit one day soon on the 5th day of the Holy Month. Peace be with you, my children.”
Coleman’s fellow “visionary” Henderson said Our Lady told him, “I love all my children unconditionally with my immaculate heart, especially all my priests who are not listening to my call. I ask all my children to pray for my priests. Pray. Pray. Pray.”
Both men added that Our Lady told them she would again appear on December 5 at the end of a recitation of the rosary at 3 p.m. when she “will make herself known to everybody who comes with an open heart.”
Tuam Archbishop Michael Neary, whose diocese includes Knock, has been critical of Coleman and his followers and has implied that he believes that the only time Our Lady did appear at Knock was 130 years ago when she was seen by a group of “humble, honest people.”
