Pope John Paul II Declares Marian Year

Pope John Paul II declared a Marian Year for the Church, beginning on Pentecost, 1987, and ending on August 15, 1988, the Feast of Our Lady’s Assumption. On August 25, 1987, Our Lady spoke about this year and the graces being given through Her. She said:

God has permitted me also in this year, which the Church has dedicated to me, to be able to speak to you and to be able to spur you on to holiness. Dear children, seek from God the graces which He is giving you through me”
