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.
