Remembering apparitions of the Virgin Mary for the anniversary of the vision at Knock

The four major apparitions of the Virgin Mary have been in Mayo, Donegal and Cork.

Frightened yet fascinated, they hurried to Rose’s house on their bicycles and related their experience to Rose’s sister Mary. Mary advised them to return to the Grotto again. They did this the next day, and while praying with the rosary, the Virgin Mary appeared again, and this time gave them a one-word message: “Peace.”
