Mystical phenomena : mysterious and strange events in Bayside

Have you ever heard about occurrences of paranormal phenomena  or supernatural manifestations in Bayside? How about reports of Marian apparitions, visions, and prophecies? Concerning all these allegedly supernatural events at Bayside, you can visit the following sites: The Virgin Mary appears in America from St Michael's World Apostolate, and The Bayside Prophecies on terrorism and war by These Last Days Ministries.

If you want to read a bit further about Our Lady of the Roses and the story of Veronica Lueken "The Seer of Bayside", then visit also: Veronica Lueken, Our Lady of the Roses, or their mirror site Our Lady of the Roses Shrine, and Roses from Heaven.

For another perspective regarding these events, read Something About Mary by Bartel d'Arcy. With that pseudonym, Suck's editor Tim Cavanaugh writes on page 4 of his column, "the Madonna who appeared in Bayside... is all urban paranoia, literal-minded menace and right-wing American fury.".

The Roman Catholic Church has condemned these alleged apparitions in a letter from former Bishop of the Diocese of Brooklyn, Francis J. Mugavero, Declaration Concerning the Bayside Movement, but some still argue that such decision was illicit and invalid. |read more here|  Meanwhile, the vigils still continue at the Vatican Pavilion in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park.
