Vatican rules supposed apparitions of Virgin Mary near Rome ‘not supernatural’

The events reportedly began after the couple brought back an image of Our Lady of Peace from Medjugorje in 2014.

According to Cardia, the image not only weeps blood but also multiplies food and relates a message on the third day of each month, as happens on the 25th with the visionaries of the supposed apparitions of the Virgin in Medjugorje.

Cardia, who created a nonprofit association that accepts donations and whose chapel was closed by the Trevignano city government, brought together numerous faithful and priests for prayer meetings at the site, which were not authorized by the Church. 

Last year, the local bishop, Bishop Marco Salvi of Civita Castellana, issued a statement asking the faithful not to attend the events with Cardia. 

In addition, the Civitavecchia prosecutor’s office opened an investigation for fraud against Cardia and her husband, and the mayor of the town ordered the demolition of the chapel where her followers were meeting.

Salvi issued a decree on March 6 that explained an investigation by a commission of expert Mariologists, theologians, canonists, psychologists, and other specialists, who considered the figure of Mary in Church tradition, found the events in Trevignano Romano to be “not supernatural.”
