Once again the parents didn’t believe their story and thinking to be all subterfuges and lies, they cruelly whipped the children. That did not prevent the shepherds to return to the ruins the next day. When they get back home, they told the wonders and prodigies that took place in that place once again.
This time the parents decided to follow them and observe from a distance. So they chose a spot where they could clearly see the walls or ruins of O Corpiño. Once there, they were amazed and astonished at the bright shimmering lights that shone like a new sun on those mountains. Possessed of fear and respect, they did not know what to do. Neither dared to get closer to know where that phenomenon and mystery came from. Finally, they decided to return to their homes. Some thought that they should divulge what they had seen. On the other hand some people thought that they should repeat the observations to be sure before exposing themselves to the jeers of their neighbors. And this opinion prevailed.
Repeated the observations in the following nights, their admiration increased more and more. That wonderful light and surprising clarity that surrounded the chapel of the Holy Hermit instilled veneration in their hearts.
This time they did not hesitate to told the apparition to all neighbors, asking their opinion about what should be done. But the people did not believe them and assumed that they were certainly deceived or had suffered some hallucination. So they resolve to go with them by day to the place of the event and record everything. They did it without any result. Enmity arose between them at this moment. But it didn’t last because the constant appearance of the glows in the place. Finally, the neighbors could no longer doubted that all this was the work of God. And they finally believe that the Lady whom only the little shepherds could see was the Mother of the Savior. And that She deigned to visit Mount O Corpiño for the love of men and for the infinite mercy of her Son.
They put everything in the knowledge of the parish priest. He also did not have the disposition to believe in that apparition and therefore he gathered the most faithful parishioners, including a devout old woman. She, after receiving the Sacred Eucharist went to the hermitage and while she was praying, the Virgin appeared to her. She appeared the same way as to the cowherd boys, with the Child in his left arm and the bouquet of flowers in his right hand. Full of joy and giving thanks to God for such marked favor, she informed the parish priest and the neighbors. On this occasion the priest in person, and accompanied by a large crowd, went to the place of the hermitage in solemn prayer from the parish church of San Pedro de Losón. It was June 24 and there was the last appearance of Our Lady. This time in the presence of all the people who, prostrate on the ground, burst into tears of gratitude and love to the Empress of Heaven. Then she disappeared mingling with the atmosphere, in the way that a cloud is generated in the air or dissolves in summer time.
The parish priest ordered to build a chapel there where all the neighbors worked had, personally or lending their interests. In the chapel, also, they have to put an image of the Apparition.
The anniversary of the apparition was celebrated with a Thanksgiving Solemn Mass, with the placement of the Image that they led processionally and with the inauguration of the Shrine. A brotherhood began, whose brothers soon became so many that they needed two days for confessing and communing.”
