Knock Shrine has recently been recognized by Pope Francis and the Vatican as an International Shrine to the Blessed Virgin Mary.
In August 1879 the Blessed Virgin Mary, St Joseph, and St John the Evangelist with the scriptures, appeared at the gable end of the church at Knock. The vision also included, an altar, a Cross, a Lamb and angels hovering about the place. It was a silent vision with a profound message.
