 Our Description

Despite the fact that contemporary churchmen play it down, it is perhaps the most dramatic conversion story since St. Paul was struck down on the road to Damascus.  On January 20, 1842, wealthy banker Alphonse Ratisbonne, a non-observant Jew who had nothing but contempt for the Catholic faith, was converted by the Blessed Mother herself when she appeared to him in the Church of Sant' Andrea delle Fratte in Rome.  The story caused a sensation at the time  (hundreds of strangers showed up to witness Ratisbonne's baptism), and naturally drew the attention of the Vatican.  After a thorough inquiry, Plpe Gregory XVI declared the event a true miracle.
