Remembering, those glorious moments in 1948, the Blessed Virgin appeared to Teresita Castillo, a former Carmelite postulant. Inexplicable phenomena of conversion, physical cures, and showers of rose petals bearing holy images had authenticated the heavenly apparition.
With the growing devotion to Our Lady, on November 12, 2009, Archbishop Arguelles issued a decree that finally lifted the 1951 ban and pronouncement of the veracity of the apparition. In pursuance of the orders of Most Rev. Mariano Gaviola, his predecessor, He had formed a new commission that will re-investigate and gather further documents pertaining to the miracles of the Apparition in Lipa.

I love her so much! I had visited her two times. I had with me two books in my possession. I felt the suffering she felt when her apparition was denied and rejected by the skeptics. I felt her happiness when she was faithfully accepted by Postulant Teresita and Bishop Gaviola and company More so now by many faithful lead by Bishop Arguelles and Father Melvin Castro.
I just read the book about the Lipa apparition authored by the late June Keithley. How those bishops/priests had declared these phenomena a hoax when in fact, investigations that time tried to hide the truth. From the postulants/novices & prioress could’ve been threatened not to divulge the truth, those poor people could have led a holy life from that time onwards instead of some of them left the convent. And didn’t die a fruitless death! Now, I’ve more than eager to visit the sacred place of our Lady of Carmel, Mediatrix of All Grace. A great book that evryone should read & learned how the late June Keithley come out w/ the real happenings of the great apparition.
