Gietrzwald and St. Lipka Tour – The Revelations of Our Lady
From 56 EUR / 61 USD per person
Gietrzwald. The Revelations of Our Lady – took place in the village of Gierzwald in 1877 when Our Lady appeared to two teenagers. She sat on the throne among the angels with Jesus on her knees. The girls asked:
– Who are you?
– I am Immaculately Concepted Blessed Virgin Mary.
– What do you demand, Mother of God?
– I wish you to pray the rosary every day.
Our Lady appeared to girls 160 times for over two weeks. With every revelation, the number of the faithful increased to the culminating point of 50.000 participants in the miracle. Yet during the revelations, the Church appointed a special commission of theologians to investigate the truth of the events. In the opinion of theologians, the behavior of the girls who saw the Mother of God was “unpretentious, simple, natural, far from any cunning.”
In the opinion of doctors, there was no simulation here. During the visits, the girls had their heart rate decreased and their body temperature dropped. After the revelations, the fate of the girls was similar. Both joined the order and one of them, Sister Barbara Samulowska, after her death is during the beatification process. In the place of the Revelation, a chapel with the image of the Mother of God was erected. The cross was made of wood of the maple over which Virgin Mary has appeared.
In 1977, the Holy See officially recognized the Revelation in Gietrzwald as one of the 12 Marian apparitions in the world. The Mass was celebrated by the future Pope – Cardinal Karol Wojtyla.
