Over 150 years ago, a Belgium immigrant woman had three visions of the Virgin Mary and built a shrine. The Catholic Church has issued a decree that the apparition is authentic and “worthy of belief.” “This is an affirmation of the spiritual fruits the people of God have received for 151 years,” Father John Doefler, the shrine’s rector and the vicar general and chancellor of the diocese, said of the bishop’s decree. “It opens the door for future spiritual growth.”
“I am the Queen of Heaven who prays for the conversion of sinners.” said the Virgin Mary to Adele Brise, on October 9, 1859. Our Lady ended by telling Adele, whose faith was strong but simple, to fear nothing and be confident in her help. For the next thirty-seven years of her life, until her death in 1896, Sister Adele Brise was faithful to this mission even through tremendous strife. Today healings and answered prayers are coming from the Virgin Mary where the shrine stands in Robinson, (now Champion) Wisconsin. – read full story
