Apparitions of Our Lady in Tre Fontane

In 1936, Bruno Cornacchiola married Iolanda Lo Gatto and had three children: the girl Isola and the boys Carlo and Gianfranco. To please her, Bruno made the nine Fridays to the Sacred Heart. But later, he met a German Protestant who put a fierce hatred for the Pope and against the Catholicism and became him a Protestant in the Seventh-day Adventist Church. In 1938, he bought an engraved dagger: "Death to the Pope." His wife tried to convert him many times, but to no avail. For many years, Bruno tried everything so that Iolanda to leave the Catholic Church and destroyed all the images of the Saints and the Crucifix. Out of love for her husband, Yolanda left the Catholic Church. 

Apparition of april 12, 1947: This Saturday, at 2 pm, Bruno took his children to play in the woods near the cave of Tre Fontane, near Rome. Bruno was 34 at the time. As they play, he prepares a text with the Bible to prove that Our Lady was not raised to Heaven or Immaculate. The children stop playing around looking for the ball. Suddenly, the children look at the cave and say they see a beautiful Lady. Bruno calls them, but they do not respond, they just pray. He prays and says, "Lord, save us!" Suddenly, Bruno also sees the beautiful Lady. He describes her: "It is impossible to describe the Heavenly Lady. Our Lady came as an Oriental woman, dark skin. In his head, she was a grass-green cloak of grassland in the spring, barefoot, with black hair parted in the center like an Indian, dressed in long, white and long sleeves, fastened at the neck. The waist is surrounded by a pink band. She is the age of an 18 year old girl. The beautiful Lady was really before me, poor creature, poor sinner! She held a gray book in her chest that holds in her right hand, which is the Bible, which is the Divine Revelation, and with the index finger of her left hand shows me a black cassock with a wooden Crucifix near broken in several Parts, the Crucifix I had broken and thrown in the trash. She had a sweetness of Mother with a little sadness and said:  
"I am she who is related to the Divine Trinity. I am the Virgin of Revelation. You have persecuted me, now is the time to stop! Come and be part of the Holy Fold which is the Celestial Court on earth. God's promise is unchangeable and will remain so. The nine First Fridays in honor of the Sacred Heart, which your faithful wife persuaded you to observe before you walked down the road of lies, has saved you. Live the divine doctrine. Practise Christianity. Live the Faith. The Hail Marys that you pray with faith and love are like golden arrows that go straight to the Heart of Jesus. Pray much and recite the Rosary for the conversion of sinners, of unbelievers and of all Christians. I promise this special favour. I shall perform great miracles for the conversion of unbelievers and of sinners." 
After the apparition, Bruno prayed the Hail Mary who had not prayed for years and had almost forgotten. He cried, prayed, and pondered for a long time. Arriving home, he told his wife and the two confessed and reconciled with the Church. After several days of searching, he finally found a priest who said what Our Lady foresaw. 

Apparition of May 6, 1947: Bruno Cornacchiola returns to the cave and again, the Mother of the Church appears smiling and maternal. She did not speak, but was very happy because of the conversion of Bruno. 

Apparition of May 23, 1947: Bruno prays in the cave with a priest and receives a signal that this is the priest who must accompany him to the pope. Our Lady also said:  
"Obey and leave this path and began to walk in the Church that is the truth and thus you will find peace and salvation. Outside of the Church, founded by my Son, there is darkness and perdition. The Church is the true path of faith and sanctification, the way of conversion. Science will deny God and refuse invitations. The Church will suffer and be persecuted."
