first by the Virgin

Compact Kissed first.

One day, a stylish woman's powder compact appeared among the several objects for the Virgin Mary to kiss during an apparition. The child and those present wanted this removed. How could the Virgin come to kiss an object so profane and used only for the service of vanity? Nevertheless, the powder case remained there.

Compact Kissed

It so happened that when the apparition arrived, the first object the Virgin Mary asked to kiss was the powder compact. This fact made some of those present doubt the veracity of the apparition. How could She kiss such a thing?

When the ecstasy ended, those present asked Conchita for an explanation. The girl announced that when the Virgin Mary arrived, she asked for the powder compact immediately in order to kiss it. She said that it was "something belonging to her Son," but Conchita did not know more than that.

Conchita did not know, but the person who brought it did, and revealed the secret.

It belonged to Ramon Pifarre Segarra, a pharmacist from Sans, Barcelona. "During the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939), in an area in which priests who had not hid themselves were exterminated, this powder compact was used to bring the Eucharist secretly to the imprisoned who were going to be executed."

It had served as a Eucharistic Pyx. The Virgin Mary's words, "It is my Son's," were made clear with this explanation.
