Many months in advance, Our Lady told Conchita (the main visionary) that the kissing of objects would take place at the Pines. She told Conchita to distribute them because they have great importance.
These articles not only have the special distinction of Our Lady's kiss but also two special graces were attached to them:
Our Lady said:
1. "Through the kiss I bestow on these objects, my Son will perform prodigies - distribute them to others."
2. "Those who wear them with faith and devotion will do their purgatory on earth."
