NCReg: Miracles Still Reported at the Good Help Shrine; Site of the First Marian Apparition in the U.S.

My visit to the National Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help is the first of nine journeys as part of Marian Pilgrimage: Discovering Mary Across the USA. You can learn more about this project here. You can follow my future journeys and send your prayer intentions here.

I’d first visited the National Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help in 2010, several weeks after the Marian apparition that had occurred there was approved by Green Bay Diocese Bishop David R. Ricken. Back then, you might have driven right past the shrine if you didn’t know it was there. Nestled in the midst of farmland, the shrine was completely inconspicuous.

It still is today, as I experienced during a recent visit there.

That’s one thing that both baffles and entices me about this amazing place where our Lady appeared to a young Belgian woman named Adele Brise in 1859. The property, the shrine, and even the Apparition Oratory itself has maintained an aura of peace and simplicity throughout the years. Locals tell me it’s been that way since the apparitions themselves occurred.
