In 1968, the Virgin Mary appeared in Egypt as a figure of light atop a church.
She reappeared there multiple times over the next two years, appearing to over 500,000 people until the figure disappeared in 1970. Because she was seen by thousands of people of all different faiths, this is known as the most legitimate Virgin Mary sighting of modern times.
It was even confirmed as an authentic sighting by the Pope himself.
The Virgin Mary has not been seen at the Coptic Orthodox Church in over 40 years, but the memory of her still lives on in the minds of thousands of people who remember seeing her like it was yesterday.
