MAY CROWNING A RITE OF SPRING

A woman kisses the hand of Sally Steadman after the visionary at Our Lady of Toledo Shrine gave her an Our Lady of Mount Carmel scapular after a prayer service.

Mrs. Steadman said the Blessed Mother fi rst appeared in vision form to her in 1992, and while she was scared at fi rst, she has since grown comfortable in her role as a visionary.

During the public apparitions, Mrs. Steadman uses a microphone to tell the crowd what the Virgin Mary is doing and saying.
