This Day in History April 26, 1457

Have you ever heard of Genazzano, a little place 90 minutes outside of Rome, Italy?  It was the site of a famous sighting in church history.  On this date in 1457, the village gathered as usual at church to celebrate the day of St. Mark.  Suddenly, heavenly notes were heard, and a dark cloud descended over a wall of the church.  When the cloud lifted, there was a portrait of Our Lady and the Christ Child.  There is a piece of artwork that commemorates this amazing experience that you can see to this date.  I have to be honest--I put no credence in this vision.  I don't put any credence of any sightings that we hear about today.  But that is my opinion.  This is still a date that is celebrated with the Feast of Our Lady of Good Counsel today.
