Las apariciones de El Escorial
On June 14th, 1981, the Virgin Mary appeared to Amparo Cuevas near an old ash of the field of Prado Nuevo, El Escorial, and asked her to be an instrument to transmit to all men a message of conversion and penance.
Immediately, thousands of faithful people began to gather around that humble woman. And have continued to do so for three decades, even under intense persecution.
It has been years already that the mystic, ill, does not appear in public. But the extraordinary phenomena still continue, studied by the Church. Many people who have visited the place have had a conversion and turn their lives to God. Among them priests, religious, and lay people of the “Reparadores de la Virgen de los Dolores”, the congregation born from the apparitions.
It is the first time that a journalist examines this mystery, gathering data and testimonies that had never come to light before, which can be of help to discern the religious and social nature of all that happens in this historical site of Madrid.
