9 October – Our Lady of Good Help and Memorials of the Saints

Our Lady of Good Help:  “I am the Queen of Heaven who prays for the conversion of sinners.”   Such is the way the Mother of God introduced herself to a twenty-eight-year-old Belgian immigrant, Adele Brise, on October 9, 1859.   The pious young woman was on her eleven mile walk home to Robinsonville (now Champion), Wisconsin, after attending Mass in Bay Settlement.   Adele was traveling at the time with two companions, her sister and another woman, as well as a male guardian who was working for the Holy Cross Fathers at the Settlement.   Our Lady had appeared earlier to Adele the day before and, again, that same morning at the same spot, but she had not spoken.   Her companions did not see or hear anything.   The young woman was told by Heaven’s Queen that she must pray for the conversion of sinners, and warn them, for if they do not convert, her Son was going to punish them.   She was told to gather together the children in this remote area and teach them the truths they must know for their salvation; teach them the catechism;  teach them how to bless themselves with the Sign of the Cross; and teach them how to approach the sacraments. 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. – Sr Adele’s life and mission here: http://catholicism.org/first-approved-marian-apparition-in-the-us-champion-wisconsin.html
