In 1859, the Blessed Virgin Mary visited a simple Belgium girl, Adele Brise, in N.E. Wisconsin. Her message was to teach the children their faith. A long history of miraculous events have occurred; conversions, physical healings and preserving the holy shrine grounds from the infamous Peshtigo fire of 1871.
The shrine of Our Lady of Good Help is the only Marian shrine in the U.S. on the site of an approved Apparition of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
O Dear Lady of Good Help, You revealed yourself as the Queen of Heaven to your servant Adele. You gave her a mission to pray for the conversion of sinners, to bring the Good News of Jesus Christ to others and to prepare children for the reception of the sacraments.
I trust that, as you called Adele to holiness, you are calling me, in my station in life, to live a holy life, devoted to Jesus Christ, with the help of your maternal love.
I bring before you now my worries and anxieties. I abandon my attachments to them and place them at your feet. I ask you to hear the deepest longings of my heart as I pray most earnestly for (your intention).
Dear Lady, you told Adele and you say to all of us “Do not be afraid; I will help you.” Help me now as I place this intention with complete confidence and trust.
Our Father. Hail Mary. Glory Be.
Our Lady of Good Help, pray for us.
