The Bedroom, near Birmingham, Alabama, where the Holy Virgin Mary has appeared 128 times* from November 19, 1988, until March 24, 2011. Our Lady first appeared in the Bedroom to Medjugorje visionary, Marija Lunetti in 1988, and began to give messages and dispense graces for miracles and profound conversions. Unknown, in the beginning, as to what or why Our Lady was appearing in the Bedroom, as time passed Our Lady began to write, with Her actions and words of Her apparitions, a love story for family and community life. Our Lady said:
May 1, 1986
In a time of great disturbances in the family, Our Lady, from this sacred site of Her repeated apparitions, tells us everything comes from the family: marriage, religious vocations, towns, states, and nations, all of which arise from families. To heal the family you must heal the individuals who make up the family, who then will make up the healed nations.
Over one hundred thousand people have knelt and prayed by this bed. They come offering everything from prayers and intentions sorrows, regrets, as well as seeking favors, healings, cures, and blessings. Many prayers of thanksgiving and petitions of every kind have been presented here to the Queen of Peace, who has distributed great graces from this holy sacred spot for the healing of the heart, for physical healing and for the health of the family. Many report receiving special graces and answers to their prayers.
*Our Lady has also appeared in the Field on 31 occasions. There have been a few other apparitions at different locations at Caritas bringing the total apparitions on the grounds of Caritas to 163 times.
