On Sunday, September 12, 2015, the Archbishop of Lipa in the Philippines, His Excellency Ramon Argüelles Cabrera, officially recognized the 1948 apparitions of the Virgin Mary to the young religious sister Teresita Castillo, at the Carmel of this city south of Manila.

"The events and apparitions of 1948, known as the Marian occurrences of Lipa, and their results, even in recent times, truly have a supernatural character and worthy of belief," the archbishop said in his decree. 

From September 12th to November 12th in 1948, the Virgin appeared a dozen times to Teresita Castillo, a 21-year-old Carmelite novice, presenting herself as "Mary Mediatrix of all Graces."

The idea that Mary is a mediatrix is sometimes criticized within the Catholic Church. The decree of Bishop Argüelles Cabrera recalls, however, that it is rooted in the writings of Saint Louis de Montfort and Saint Alphonsus Liguori, and has been defended in the 20th century by Cardinal Mercier, Archbishop of Malines-Brussels.

According to the Philippine press, Archbishop Arguelles approved the apparitions of Lipa after obtaining the approval of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments.
