Ten random things: August 21

Ten fully approved Marian apparitions:

  1. 1933, in Banneux, Belgium, before Mariette Beco, a schoolgirl
  2. 1990 through 1995, in Litmanová, Slovakia, before Katka Ceselkova and Ivetka Korcakova
  3. 1968 through 1971, in Zeitoun, Egypt, on a church roof before thousands of people
  4. 1579, in Kazan, Russia, before Matrona, a ten-year-old girl
  5. 1846, in La Salette, France, before two cowherder children
  6. 1917, in Fatima, Portugal, before Lucia dos Santos & Bl Jacinta and Francisco Marto
  7. 1858, in Lourdes, France, before Bernadette Soubirous, a Bigourdane peasant girl
  8. 1531, in Villa Guadalupe, Mexico, before Juan Diego, an indigenous farmer
  9. 1879, in Knock, Ireland, before numerous witnesses
  10. 1973, in Akita, Japan, before Sister Sasagawa

By "approved," I mean that the Roman Catholic church has investigated the alleged appearances and judged them to be credible.
