Here's an approved apparition of Our Lady I never heard of:
The numerous apparitions and visions of the seven seer girls of Heroldsbach (35 km north of Nuremberg) began on Oct. 9, 1949 with the green lucent sign “JSH” of Trinity above the birches.
J meant “Jahwe”, H “Hyos” (Greek: son) and S “Spiritus Sanctus”.
After this the Holy Virgin Mary appeared above the birches praying with folded hands. She wore white clothes, had red roses on her feet and a black rosary.
From the third apparition day on, the Mother of God carried the Jesus Child on her left arm.
Until Oct. 31, 1952 the Holy Virgin Mary appeared mainly with a blue dress and a golden crown. She insistently wished prayers, penitence and expiation.
From Jan. 13, 1950 on, the Mother of God left her place above the birches and came regularly to the seer children. They were allowed to touch her body and hands.
They could note her real presence combined with a fluent force. Furthermore they touched and carried the Jesus Child who later came also as boy, adult saviour, sacred heart, good shepherd and redeemer on the cross.
Many angels and saints appeared as well, first of them St. Joseph.
