Holy virgin appears on Guanabana tree

Colombia news - virgin

The holy virgin has appeared again. Inhabitants of Ocaña, Norte de
Santander department, on Wednesday discovered the image of Our Lady of Grace of Torcoroma, a village near Ocaña, on a Guanabana tree.

Within a couple of hours, the house of the Torrado family where the virgin appeared, had turned into a pilgrimage site. Hundreds of faithful, who believe the appearance announces good times, have visited the tree since the early morning hours of Wednesday.

“I believe the virgin appeared and she appeared for a reason,” visitor Esperanza Quintero told Canal RCN.

The Catholic Church has not yet confirmed the validity of the virgin.
