First Approved Marian Apparition in the United States!

December 8, 2010

Exciting news out today from our neighbors to the north! The apparition took place 150 years ago a few miles from Green Bay, Wisconsin. You can learn all about the shrine and apparition on the official website here: Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help.

Some friends of ours gave us a DVD about Our Lady of Good Help a few months ago (the one advertised on the website) and I’m afraid it has sat on the shelf un-watched until today. It’s an amazing story (though a somewhat cheezy video production) that includes the miraculous safety of a number of people who fled to the chapel during the infamous Peshtigo Fire of 1871 (which took place the same day as the Great Chicago Fire and is lesser known, though it was far more destructive).
