The Miracle of Our Lady of Knock

The Miracle of Our Lady of Knock. 2016 by Stephen B. Whatley

A new Christian Tribute by international artist Stephen B. Whatley

Excerpt from the website of the artist: Our Lady of Knock - a tribute to the miraculous vision of The Blessed Virgin Mary, St Joseph, St John The Evangelist and The Lamb of God that appeared to villagers in Knock, Ireland on this day, 21 August, in 1879. The painting was created by expressionist artist Stephen B. Whatley, with prayers, on 17 August, the date now assigned Feast Day by The Catholic Church.

Blessings of miraculous healing and strength wherever necessary - & prayers for world peace at this poignant time of the 15th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks in New York City, which killed 2,977 victims, and caused worldwide grief.

Miracle at Knock claim sent to Vatican - Irish News - Irish Central

Woman with Multiple Sclerosis says she was cured

The following excerpt is from the website of Irish Central:


The Vatican will shortly receive a petition to acknowledge the first miracle at Knock after a woman has claimed that a visit to the shrine cured her of multiple sclerosis.

Other miracles have been claimed at Knock but none have actually been forwarded to the Vatican for verification.

The Sunday Times reported that Marian Carroll, now aged 59, says she was cured of multiple sclerosis after a visit to the shrine almost 20 years ago.

The claim is accompanied by several medical evaluations that accept that something remarkable happened to her when she visited Knock.

Mrs Carroll wrote an autobiography ‘I Was Cured at Knock’, in which she describes her recovery from the MS condition that left her unable to walk, blind in one eye and without the control of her bladder.

During the ceremony she felt a weight lift from her and she was able to get up and walk. She has had no symptoms since.

Knock shrine is where an apparition of the Blessed Virgin Mary, St Joseph, St John the Evangelist and Jesus Christ is said to have occurred in 1879.

Diarmuid Murray, a doctor who runs a practice in the shrine grounds, is gathering the evidence to present the case to the Vatican for approval.
