This modern apparition of Mary happened right here in the United States. Mary first appeared to a nun named Sister Mary Ephrem in 1956. She continued to appear to this holy sister for many years. Mary called herself Our Lady of America. She said that she wanted the United States to dedicate itself to her purity. Much of the focus of her message was on the family and its importance for a healthy society. She wanted to be honored under the title of Our Lady of America in the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. Mary also asked Sister Mary Ephrem to have a medal struck and a statue made in her image. Our Lady of America is dressed all in white with a white cape or mantle, a waist length veil and a high gold crown. Her heart is surrounded by roses and is topped by her gentle flame of love. Mary said “It is the United States that is to lead the world to the peace of Christ.”
