One of the signs of our times is that the announcements of Marian Apparitions are multiplying all over the world" (Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger in The Ratzinger Report)
Reports of Marian apparitions in Oliveto Citra began in 1985. The virgin Mary, calling herself "Our Lady of Graces" and the "Immaculate Virgin Mother of God," is bringing yet another appeal for conversion. prayer and works of mercy.
Mary is indeed our mother, for through her we have been born, not for the world but for God... She is our mother - the mother of our life, the mother of our encarnation, the mother of our light ...She, as mother of Christ, is the mother of our wisdom and justice, of our holiness and redemption. She is more our mother than the mother of our flesh. Our birth from her is better, for from her is born our holiness, our wisdomour justice, our sanctification, and our redemption (from a sermon by Saint Aelred Abbot)
"In her maternal love, Mary cares for the brothers and sisters and her son as they journey on earth in the midst of dangers and hardships, until they are brought safely home to happiness of heaven" (From the Dogmatic constitution of the church of the Second Vatican Council)
