Our Lady of Good Help

Our Holy Mother Queen of Heaven appeared to a young Belgium immigrant named Adele Brise. Our Lady appeared to Adele in total of three times between two trees - one a maple and one a hemlock but it wasn't until her third time on October 9, 1859 that she revealed her desire for the young peasant girl.

Mary asked her to receive Holy Communion and offer it and penance for the conversion of sinners.

Adele then asked Mary, "What more can I do, dear Lady?"

Mary's response was simple: "Gather the children in this wild country and teach them what they should know for salvation."

"How shall I teach them when I know so little myself?" Adele asked in return.

Mary replied, "Teach them their catechism, how to sign themselves with the sign of the Cross, and how to approach the sacraments; this is what I wish you to do.  Go and fear nothing.  I will help you."
