In Rome City, Indiana the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to a humble nun in 1956 as Our Lady of America and asked her to spread this devotion. Despite many efforts and church approval, few people are aware of the apparition site of Our Lady of America, her messages or the miracles that continue to happen in Rome City. People travel the globe to visit other apparition sites unaware that Mary is in their own backyard. "By Thy Holy and Immaculate Conception,O Mary, Deliver Us from Evil"
"What can be concluded canonically is that the devotion was both approved by Archbishop Leibold and, what is more, was actively promoted by him. In addition, over the years, other Bishops have approved the devotion and have participated in public devotion to the Mother of God, under the title of Our Lady of America." The Most Reverend Raymond L. Burke, Archbishop of Saint Louis May 31, 2007."
