  • Description

    MORE THAN FOUR THOUSAND PILGRIMS YESTERDAY (FRIDAY) VISITED A HILL AT EIN EL DELB IN SOUTH LEBANON WHERE A FOURTEEN YEAR OLD GIRL REPORTED SEEING AN APPARITION OF THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY.

    THE GIRL, WARDEH GIRGIS MANSOUR, FIRST REPORTED HER VISION SEVERAL DAYS AGO. SHE SAID THE BLESSED VIRGIN HAD APPEARED FROM A CLOUD OF DENSE FOG ON THE HILL. THE VIRGIN HAD ASKED HER TO ASSIST IN RAISING FUNDS TO BUILD A CHURCH IN THE GROTTO AT THE BASE OF THE HILL.

    YESTERDAY (FRIDAY) PILGRIMS FROM AS FAR AWAY AS BEIRUT WENT TO THE HILLSIDE AND WATCHED AS WARDEH CLIMBED THE HILLSIDE. THE GIRL SAID THAT THE BLESSED VIRGIN HAD AGAIN APPEARED TO HER WHILE SHE WAS ON THE HILL.

    ON THIS OCCASION, THE GIRL SAID, SHE WAS INSTRUCTED TO CHANGE THE FLOWERS ON A SMALL ALTAR IN THE GROTTO AND RETURN. WHEN SHE RETURNED, SAID WARDEH, THE BLESSED VIRGIN THEN ASKED HER TO PLACE A BLACK CLOTH ON THE ALTAR. THERE WERE NO OTHER INSTRUCTIONS.

    AMONG THE PILGRIMS WHO WATCHED YESTERDAY WERE PARENTS WITH SICK AND DISABLED CHILDREN.

    WARDEH INTENDS TO BECOME A NUN. SHE HAS SAID THE BLESSED VIRGIN TOLD HER SHE COULD ENTER A CONVENT IN THE AUTUMN.
