Our Lady of the Pillar

There are countless churches and shrines dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Do you know the first Marian apparition and the first church dedicated to her?

I recently learned about it and want to share with you!

The video below explains the first apparition of Our Lady and the first church built in her honor.

  • Title: Our Lady of the Pillar – Nuestra Señora del Pilar de Zaragoza in Spanish
  • Date of Apparition: January 2, 40 to St. James the Greater – technically bilocation because Mary was still alive at the time of the appearance
  • Location: Zaragoza, Spain – then Roman Hispania
  • Feast Day: October 12th
  • Patroness Titles: Patroness of Spain, Patroness of All Hispanic Peoples – as declared by Pope John Paul II in 1984

Our Lady of the Pillar, pray for us!
