Woman told not to talk about visions of Virgin Mary
HAGERSTOWN, Md. - A Pennsylvania woman whose purported messages from the Virgin Mary have been discredited by the Roman Catholic Church has canceled her scheduled appearances in Maryland at the urging of the archbishop of Baltimore.
The Lynfield Event Complex near Frederick says a series of regularly scheduled monthly prayer meetings featuring Gianna Sullivan have been canceled.
The Fairfield, Pa., woman was warned last week by Archbishop Edwin O'Brien not to talk or write about the alleged apparitions anywhere within the archdiocese.
The archdiocese concluded in 2000 that the alleged visions were not supernatural and barred Sullivan's weekly appearances at an Emmitsburg church. The Vatican upheld that decision in 2003. -AP
