Italy -Verona: Marija Pavlovic visits Santuario della Madonna della Corona Spiazzi on June 2, 2012
At the Shrine of Santuario della Madonna della Corona Spiazzi (Our Lady of the Crown) frequented by Veronese, Medjugorje visionary Marija Pavlovic was welcomed by eight priests and by a thousand faithful (including holiday makers), mostly in the church, some on the steps and the rest on the road that leads there. Between 18.40 and 18.43,Marija had once again an apparition.
Many young people attended. Mass, which preceded the Eucharistic adoration and prayer to Mary was celebrated by eight priests. The rector Monsignor Pietro Maroldi, shortly before had said: " The Church has not officially ruled on apparitions however I am in favor of this devotion of so many faithful and so many conversions." He said that he did not organize the visit but rather the group Medjugorje - Villafontana had done so: "I was asked to accept the visionary at the shrine," he explained, "and I accepted. Marija secured the fifteenth century statue of the Pietà that dominates the apse of the church sanctuary. She led the prayers. Then a silence fell over the church as she had her apparition. This lasted for about four minutes. Marija said "In this beautiful sanctuary, where the presence of the Madonna is perceived and breathed, Our Lady told me that she loves us and wanted us all here today. In fact, if I see her, you see, all of you. Now She prayed and blessed all of you. And for you this is a great grace, received for free. Marija spoke about the importance of confession, prayer especially the rosary and the family. She also spoke about the priesthood.
