In the year 1061 there was an apparition of the Virgin Mary in England. For centuries “Our Lady of Walsingham,” was known as the “Nazareth of England.”
Did you know Henry the Eighth visited there many times in his life before ordering it’s destruction in 1538?
Though relegated to obscurity for the following centuries, nowadays the site welcomes pilgrims once again.
The pilgrimage site Our Lady of Walsingham is known as England’s Nazareth and it became a wonderful place where for five centuries people went on pilgrimages. Now, after a 400 year pause, people once again are able to go on pilgrimages thanks to the Virgin Mary’s visit in England.
It all came about thanks to a pious woman, Richeldis de Faverches, who experienced an apparition of the Virgin Mary in the year 1061, in the village of Walsingham, near Norfolk, just a few miles from the sea.
