The Virgin Mary is reported to have supernaturally appeared to people at various times. At Lourdes in 1858, an apparition of the Virgin Mary was said to have appeared to a 14-year-old shepherd girl in Lourdes, France. In 1917 three shepherd children in Fatima, Portugal also reported having seen the Virgin Mary. Mr. Lisbon says " We baptized her, we confirmed her, and now she believes this crap ", which may sound contradictory since the Catholic Church supported both these sightings. However, he is probably criticising the unapproved claim to a sighting in their city, and the marketing scam that this appears to be.
