Mary's Simple Message

A small farm town only two hours north of Milwaukee has the remarkable distinction of being the only Church-approved Marian apparition site in the entire nation. The Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help, in Champion, has the same status as other more famous Marian shrines in Fatima, Lourdes and Guadalupe. Its local bishop recently gave his blessing and approval to the holy tradition that the Virgin Mary visited the young Adele Brise, a Belgian immigrant, in 1859.

Now, you might think that private revelations would contain some novel, earth-shattering message, but the approved ones never do. The messages are always remarkably simple. So what does the Queen of Heaven ask of us again and again? More prayer, more repentance, more sacrifices for sinners. These are simple reminders. But we need to hear them over and over again because we clearly forget and, within a generation or two, we tend to turn the page and move on.
