Great list Ray. I haven't heard of a couple of them. The Egyptian one is approved by the Coptic Church. Very well documented as well.

(I thought I heard a woman near Como Park in St. Paul has been seeing things - after she fell off a barstool...ROFL!)

Very impressive Ray! Thanks for the quick reference list!

Thanks, Ray

My understanding of "approval" is that it means "worthy of belief". I further believe that there are no formal approvals of apparitions.

Certainly Dei Verbum, Dogmatic Constitution on Divine Revelation, teaches that there is NO public revelation post Christ, emphasis on public.

I should have known that information about public and private revelation, Pat. Thank you for providing it. And the good reference to Dei Verbum.
