A documentary film about an apparition of the Virgin Mary and its effect on visitors to a small European village is coming to Oklahoma City, courtesy of a group of metro residents.
Ken and Carolyn Ehli, of Moore, and Velma Brandt, of Edmond, said showings of the inspirational documentary called “The Triumph” will be Dec. 8 and 9 at AMC Quail Springs Theater.
Brandt and Carolyn Ehli said they have been selling tickets to the showings for several weeks to give people an opportunity to buy them before the Nov. 15 purchase deadline. They said the film has been popular in other cities because it chronicles the miracles that have occurred in Medjugorje, Bosnia-Herzegovina, where reports of an apparition called “Our Lady” have occurred regularly since 1981.
“The Triumph” follows a young man battling substance abuse as he visits Medjugorje, where hundreds of people make pilgrimage each year. Six people, referred to as “visionaries,” have said they have been visited by an apparition of Our Lady several times since June 24, 1981. The documentary is promoted as a film that hopes to help uncover the mystery and inspiration behind the apparition visitations.
“Our Blessed Mother has been appearing in Medjugorje regularly,” Brandt said.
