The alleged Marian apparitions in Trevignano Romano in Italy to Gisella Cardia are relatively new. They began in 2016 following her visit to Medjugorje, Bosnia-Herzegovina, and purchase of a statuette of Our Lady, which subsequently began to weep blood. The apparitions have already been the subject of an Italian national TV broadcast during which the seer behaved with remarkable calm in the face of some heated criticism from panelists in the studio toward her and two books. A Nihil obstat was recently granted by an Archbishop for the Polish translation of the second of these, In Cammino con Maria (“On the way with Mary”) published by Edizioni Segno, containing the story of the apparitions and the associated messages up until 2018. While such a foreign Nihil obstat does not, on its own, constitute in situ diocesan approval of the apparitions, it is certainly not insignificant. And the local Bishop of Civita Castellana appears to have been quietly supportive of Gisella Carda, having given access early on to a chapel for the overwhelming influx visitors who began to gather in the Cardia’s house to pray, once news of the apparitions began to spread.
There are several major reasons for focusing on Trevignano Romano as a potentially important and solid prophetic source. Firstly, the content of Gisella’s messages converges very closely with the “prophetic consensus” represented by other contemporary sources, without any indication of her awareness of their existence (Luz de Maria de Bonilla, Pedro Regis, Fr. Michel Rodrigue, Fr. Adam Skwarczynski, the diaries of Bruno Cornacchiola. . .).
Secondly, several of the overtly prophetic messages would appear to have been fulfilled: we notably find a request in September 2019 to pray for China as the source of new airborne diseases. .
My children, thank you for having gathered here in this Holy House (Church) for prayer and for having listened to my call in your hearts. Thank you, children, for having consoled my heart and the Holy [Heart] of Jesus. My children, be always ready: behold, heaven and earth have almost united. Children, I ask you to nourish yourselves with my Son Jesus who is Divinity, Body and Blood.* Those who scorn and blaspheme against me will gradually have only anger and bitterness, while those who have believed will retain joy, peace and love. My children, the truth must be shouted out fearlessly, and when you shout the name of Jesus, true God, the demons will tremble. But do not fear, because great protection will descend on you. Be ready. Do not be discouraged if they insult and persecute you—this has been written—because yours will be the Kingdom of Heaven. Winds of war will blow. Pray for Italy, and for priests who are confused at the moment. Consecrate yourselves every day to my Immaculate Heart and to the Sacred Heart of Jesus; only in this way will you be able to mitigate the suffering of the times to come. Now I leave you with my maternal blessing, in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
My children, thank you for being united in prayer and for having accepted my call in your hearts. My beloveds, evangelize and shout that Jesus is coming to save you. I am sad because you do not listen to my words and because of the pain you are causing my Son Jesus. Beloved children, do not grow weary, because now is the time to look around you to see who is in Christ and who is not; this is the moment for your speech to be either “yes, yes” or “no, no!” Be the light of the world: your light must be so strong that anyone can recognize you. Prepare safe refuges: prepare your houses as small churches, and I will be there with you. A revolt is ready, both inside and outside the Church. Now I bless you in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, Amen.
