Do the Apparitions of the Virgin Mary (1) have any bearing on the
Second Coming of Our Lord Jesus Christ? Is there any Biblical and
historical support to expect all those apparitions?
The best way to seek for the answers to these questions is to
prayerfully consult the Holy Scriptures as the author of this work has
The book of Revelations gives us confirmation to the mission that Mary,
Queen of Angels, must fulfill before the Second Coming of Our Lord. In
Chapter 22: 6-10 we can read:
he said to me: These words are most faithful and true. And the Lord God
of the spirits of the prophets sent his angel to shew his
servants the things which must be done shortly."
"And I, John who have heard and seen
these things...... And he saith to me: Seal not the words of the
prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand". (2)
In addition, Malachi [3:1-2] also prophesies:

being given to us" and not
to seal them [hide them].
Our Lady has said in the apparitions of the second half of the 20th
century that those will be Her last messages and apparitions on earth.
This concurs with many other known Marian manifestations on earth (3).
It should then follow that the stage for the Marian Apparitions in the
19th and 20th Centuries was set over 2,000 years ago and that we are at
the gates of the End of These Times.
