Apparitions and Miracles :

Our Lady of Knock (1879)

In 1879, the Blessed Mother, Saint Joseph, and Saint John appeared to women and other witnesses outside a church in Knock, Ireland.   The witnesses said that in their apparition, the Blessed Mother was standing and praying, in a white cloak, with her eyes cast upwards, and with a golden crown.  St Joseph stood to her right, with what one called “iron-grey whiskers.”  On her left was St John the Evangelist, identified because almost everyone mentioned he was holding a book, “as if teaching”, and some said he had a mitre on his head.  They and other witnesses stated they also saw a lamb on a small altar and a cross.

The Blessed Mother is known under the title of Our Lady of Knock.
