Our Lady of Knock

Our Lady of Knock, Queen of Ireland, you gave hope to our people in a time of distress and comforted them in sorrow. You have inspired countless pilgrims to pray with confidence to your divine Son, remembering His promise: "Ask and you shall receive, Seek and you shall find". Help me to remember that we are all pilgrims on the road to heaven. Fill me with love and concern for my brothers and sisters in Christ, especially those who live with me. Comfort me when I am sick or lonely or depressed.Teach me how to take part ever more reverently in the holy Mass. Pray for me now, and at the hour of my death. Amen.

The first miracle occured 10 days after the actual apparition when a little girl born deaf, was given the gift of hearing. When the pilgrims heard about this news many sick and oppressed people can to where the apparition occured. Many unusual and miraculous cures occured. People now have pilgrimages to this shrine and take a part of the wall as a relic. Now there is a statue of Our Lady Of Knock where the vision occured.

The Churchs response to this apparation was a circumspect. Commisons were formed to gather testamonies and find records of those who were cured. At first the church highly testified againest the thought of this apparation. The head of the diocese- Archbishop Gilmartin- authorised the publication of the appartion of Our Lady.
