In this presentation, the major Marian apparitions of the last two centuries are explored to reveal a common and startling message that is relevant and even urgent for a troubled world today.  Beginning with the apparitions to St. Catherine Laboure at Rue du Bac, France, and continuing with a discussion of La Salette, Lourdes, Fatima, Amsterdam, Akita, and Rwanda, this presentation looks at the prevailing conditions of the times and locations of these remarkable events, and the numerous spiritual weapons Our Lady has given us over the past 180 years to protect us against the rising influence of evil.


Testimonials for The Age of Mary

Elizabeth Ficocelli was a wonderful addition to the first ever Diocese of Lansing Catholic Women’s Conference. Her presentation of “The Age of Mary” was powerfully done with beautiful pictures, well researched and presented facts from many different apparitions, and Elizabeth’s obvious love for Mary and her role in our lives. Most of the women at the conference gave her the highest mark of the speakers. The women found it both informative and inspirational.
