La Nacion from Argentina reports on the large numbers of pilgrims in Buenos Aires for the 25th anniversary of the apparitions of Our Lady of the Rosary to Gladys Motta in the Parish of San Nicolás de los Arroyos. Over 800,000 people passed through the Basilica to venerate the statue of Our Lady of the Rosary during the 24 hour period and 100,000 joined the outdoor procession and Mass.

In this photo from La Nacion, you can see three Argentine Bishops wearing Marian blue vestments, a privilege allowed at major Marian shrines.

There is more information about the apparitions at the Mother of All Peoples site.
