The new commissioners attended Mass and as part of their investigation, one of the committee members jammed a long needle into Vicka’s left shoulder blade twice while she was in ecstasy. Blood immediately spurted out onto her white blouse. Vicka, however, showed no reaction of pain at the time of the punctures while she was seeing Our Lady. When the apparition ended, she was shocked to feel pain and see the blood on her shirt. This â€œtestâ€ was commonly done in the past to test those who professed seeing visions, but in this modern age of science in which there were many different kinds of scientific tests available, it was considered archaic. Even so, it still gave credence to Vicka’s testimony.
