Saint Anne’s Only Approved Apparition

National Catholic Register, Solène Tadié: Brittany has always had a special veneration for St. Anne, its patron saint, whom the Bretons traditionally call “their grandmother” — Mamm gozh ar Vretoned in local dialect. Devotion to St. Anne is still very much alive in this northwestern region of France, as attested by the thousands of pilgrims who flock to Sainte-Anne d’Auray (in the Morbihan department) on her feast day every July 26. This shrine is built at the place of her only apparition recognized by the Church, which occurred in the 17th century. Report is here.
