EWTN Catholic Q&A
Question from Kaz on 08-13-2012:

I have always been very fond of the Holy Mother, but I am far from sinless; recently for some reason I keep having visions of Mary. But when I blink in surprise, she's gone again and the object I was looking at returns to normal. I am a bit worried about this and feel uncomfortable discussing it as its sounds really crazy. Does this usually happen, and what is the reason behind it? I don't doubt God at all I just don't understand this as wonderful and as blessed as i feel, I do feel I am supposed to be learning something from this. Any advice would be very much appreciated. Thank you.

Dear Kaz,

See a doctor. If he finds you normal enough, see a priest.If the apparitions are real, you will eventually realize it.
