La Vergine della Rivelazione
The Madonna of the Revelation, who is believed to have appeared to Bruno Cornacchiola in 1947 in the Roman area of Tre Fontana. A few years prior Bruno had converted to Protestantism and became strongly opposed to Catholic Marian devotion. At some point he even considered killing the pope.
During the apparition Mary urged him to reconvert to Catholicism with the words ‘I am the Virgin of Revelation. You persecute me. Enough is enough! Enter the holy sheepfold’.
