A seems the best to me.

'Whom' is incorrectly used, so all the choices using 'whom' can be eliminated.

'have had visions' is better than 'have visions' because they had the visions before making the claims.

need present perfect tense, so we need a have + past participle (had, in this case)

To decide who or whom, we can use a object pronoun test by asking:

who appeared ? she (virgin mary) appeared --> that's right
and not
whom appeared? her (virgin mary) appeared --> completely wrong, even by ear

So we choose who, and present pefect, A is the answer.

Yes, it is a good explanation. Even the OA, 'A', supports it.
