Joe Coleman's jig is up - Mary was a no-show at Knock

Previously saying that everyone with eyes of faith would see the Blessed Mother at Knock at 3PM today, and expecting 50,000 to show up -10,000 people walked away disappointed today at Knock.

More than 10,000 people were left disappointed in Ireland Saturday as the Virgin Mary failed to appear as predicted at Knock Basilica.

By 3 p.m. Irish time (10 a.m. EST) about 7,000 people had crammed into the Basilica with a further 3,000 people outside.

Dubliner Joe Coleman, the man who had predicted the apparition left the Basilica at about 4 p.m. saying he had seen Our Lady as anticipated.

Coleman, who says he is “a visionary of our Blessed Mother” said he had also received communication from the Virgin Mary.

However, he said he was unwilling to reveal the message.

Speaking earlier this week Coleman had he warned that the visitation would only be visible “to people who come with an open heart”.


Apparently, 10,000 people who left their homes anticipating seeing Mary went with a closed heart.

Coleman saw her though and he has a message.

Whaoh.

Wait a minute...I'm getting a message too....

Hang on...it's coming....

I

see

10,000 jackasses...

..and 2 Blaggards.
