Our Lady and the Visionaries of Knock, DVD
Our Lady and the Visionaries of Knock:
In 1879, at the beginning of the Land War, and after 300 years of anti-Catholic persecution throughout Ireland, in a little village called Knock in County Mayo, an apparition of Our Lady, Saint Joseph and Saint John the Evangelist occurred before the astonished eyes of fifteen people. It took place at the south gable end of the small local parish church. A little to the left of Saint John was an altar, upon which stood a cross and a Lamb with adoring angels surrounding. The apparition occurred after and during a time of enormous religious, social, cultural and economic sufferings for the Irish people. The appearance of the Ever Immaculate Mother of God affirmed God’s blessing upon the Catholic faithful of Ireland and Our Lady’s support and comfort in their trials, reminding the people that the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, which for centuries had been attacked, outlawed and abused by the anti-Catholic oppressors of Ireland, is the most central, sacred and important act of worship and the greatest prayer on earth.
In this new film ‘Our Lady and the visionaries of Knock’ we look at the circumstances surrounding the apparition, the fifteen witnesses, Archdeacon Cavanagh who was the parish priest of Knock at that time and step back into Ireland’s past to 1536 when an Apostate Catholic King turned his bitter eyes upon a green emerald country that had once been described as the land of Saints and scholars.
