The 10 Most Famous Miracles Of All Time. #6 Gave Me Goosebumps.

#5. Six children of Medjugorje

On June 24, 1981, six children, Ivan, Jakov, Marija, Mirjana, Vicka, and Ivanka, in the small town of Medjugorje reported seeing the Virgin Mary. The children are considered visionaries and the Virgin Mary continues to visit them regularly to give each child a total of ten secrets or happenings that will occur on earth in the future. Once they each have been given all of her messages she will no longer appear to them.

A shrine in Medjugorje marks the spot where the Virgin Mary first appeared and has attracted 40 million visitors of all faiths since 1981. Countless stories have been reported of people who were physically or mentally ill prior to visiting the town and have since converted and healed from their illnesses.

#6. Miracle of the sun in Fatima, Portugal

In 1917 in Fatima, Portugal, some children claimed that they saw the Virgin Mary. They reported that she told them that a miracle would happen on October 13th of that year. Around noon of October 13th, the sun appeared to turn into a spinning disc as thousands of people gathered to witness the event.

Some say it was nothing more than a sundog, but that day was officially accepted as a miracle of by the Roman Catholic Church on October 13,1930.

#7. The blood of Saint Januarius

The Cathedral of Naples holds a vial of blood from Saint Januarius, an early Christian martyr. People gather and pray while the resident cardinal holds the vial of dried blood that liquefies. This has happened 18 times each year for the past 600 years.

#8. St. Joseph of Cupertino

According to legend, in the 1600's, Saint Joseph of Cupertino hovered over a crowd as part of a religious trance. This happened multiple times. Saint Joseph was declared the patron saint of air travelers, astronauts, aviators, and people with mental handicaps.
