Mother Mary is also the mother of miracles. I have visited many Marian sites such as Lourdes in France, where thousands of people have been cured of very serious, "incurable" conditions from the healing waters. Many left their crutches and wheel chairs behind. I remember coming out of the water and being in an altered state of such deep peace, that I could not even speak for hours. Years later, in the chapel of an ancient Cathedral in Assisi, Italy, Mother Mary appeared to me through one of her statues. After this deeply profound experience, I took photos of the statue. What appeared in the photos were her apparitions. I believe this occurred so that I could bear witness to others of her constant presence in our lives.
