← Wisconsin on the Map to Pray With Mary

This whole issue of apparitions appearing to people has always both intrigued me and pissed me off. After all, how do any of these people who supposedly witnessed this really know, assuming that an apparition actually appeared, without a shadow of a doubt, that it was the "Mary" who appeared? What if it was actually some other woman like Mary Jones? This is the same as seeing an image of Jesus on a wall or a piece of toast. How can anyone really be sure that it's them, especially as I am unaware of any genuine 1st century photographs of the two of them!

What nonsense.
