Our Lady of the Rosary Apparitions in Argentina Approved


On Sunday, May 22, 2016, the local bishop of San Nicolas, Argentina, Most. Reverend Hector Cardelli,announced that the apparitions of Our Lady of the Rosary are “supernatural in character” and “worthy of belief.”

A devout Catholic housewife with no formal education, claimed the Blessed Mother had visited her daily for 6 ½ years and that she also received 68 messages from Jesus Christ.  There were numerous documented miraculous healings and beginning in November 1984, she received the stigmata during Advent and Lent.

The First Appearance

It all began on September 25, 1983, when the Blessed Mother briefly appeared to Gladys Quiroga de Motta, in her room, in San Nicolas de los Arroyos in Argentina. The mother of two grown daughters, a grandmother, and wife to a metallurgical worker, had been in her room praying her rosary at the time.

In the History of Mary of the Rosary of San Nicolas it is explained that Mary was dressed in blue, held Baby Jesus in her arms, and a rosary in her hand. On the previous day, she and some neighbors had seen the rosary hanging in her bedroom glow.  Our Lady appeared again on the 7thand 12th of October.   She spoke to Gladys for the first time on October 13, the anniversary of the last appearance at Fatima.
