About this item

Halemba explores what responses to the vision of the Virgin Mary by two girls in a meadow called Dzhublyk in 2002 reveal about the status of Christianity and the church in Catholic Transcarpathia. In particular she considers the response when the vision was asked why she came, and she responded that she came to help restore the authority of the priests among the people, to unite the divided people, and unite the church. She covers the Dzhublyk apparitions and modern apparitional patterns, nation and church in Transcarpathia, authority of the priests, and call for unity and management of divergent devotions.
