She last made an appearance in WWII during an American bombing raid. According to the program I'm watching at the moment on COX Cable one of our pilots reported an aparition of what seemed to be a very tall woman catching bombs and tossing them aside.
This was also reported extensively on the ground.
According to this program Matsu is presently the most venerated goddess in Taiwan. You have to talk directly to Matsu since no one may intervene.
Thai Buddhists regularly report such apparitions as well.
I don't begin to understand these visions and images. However, they seem to be a worldwide phenomenon, and there is quite a bit of commonality in them.
I'm going to surprise my fellow traditionalist Catholics and say that I have much trouble with apparitions. My mind tends to gravitate toward logic and science. The Catholic church teaches that I don't even have to believe the "dogmatically correct" ones (for lack of a better term).
For me there is one exception - Fatima. How do we explain a modern miracle witnessed by tens of thousands of faithful, not faithful, believers, atheists, communists and journalists?
To this day, there exists little or no credible refutation to what those people witnessed in Portugal. At some point one has to say it becomes illogical to be logical.
