Miracles continue to happen at this Marian shrine in Wisconsin.
A massive fire broke out near Peshtigo, Wisconsin in 1871 claiming nearly 2500 lives, and was on its way towards a chapel that became the site of a Marian apparition.
Writer Larry Peterson narrated the story for Aleteia and highlights the first miracle that occurred.
More than one million acres were destroyed in the Peshtigo Firestorm. As far as the eye could see was total devastation. Yet, in the middle of it all, the Chapel of Our Lady of Good Help and the fenced property surrounding it were untouched. The property had been spared and no-one had been hurt, not even the animals. The five acres sat amid the charred landscape like an oasis in the desert. People who came and saw this incredible sight knew it was the Hand of God at work that night. The faithful had no doubt that the Blessed Virgin, Our Lady of Good Help, stood outside the chapel deflecting the raging inferno away from her children inside.
Since this occurrence, many others have been affected by the message of Our Lady of Good Help and have experienced both physical and spiritual healing.
Last year Megyn Kelly of NBC interviewed a woman who was cured of her cancer, you can watch the video of her testimony on YouTube.
Megyn Kelly speaks with Nancy Foytik, who was diagnosed with stage four colon cancer. After visiting Wisconsin’s National Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help, the only place in the U.S. recognized by the Catholic church as a site where the virgin Mary appeared, Nancy’s tumors on her left lung disappeared. “We just knew when I walked out of the chapel that day that I was going to be cured,” she said.
The official website for the Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help contains other miracles that have occurred in the past few years. This is one:
During a visit to the Champion Shrine in 2013, a family from Kansas City, Mo. becomes worried when their 18-month-old daughter’s feeding tube suddenly slipped out. Later that same day, the emergency room doctors report they are unable to reinsert the tube because the hole had healed.
“There are many cases where people go themselves and pray for healing and they may receive it, but in this case, a woman prayed for her mother, and went back home and she … got out of hospice,” he said. “It’s really an incredible place of prayer — both for people who have ailments themselves and to bring our intentions to Our Lady. Some of them, it appears, are being answered.”
This does not however mean that everyone who prays there is guaranteed a miracle. Everyone is encouraged to pray with the sincerest faith in God. God continues to be at our side ready to show us his loving care, but finally, his will shall be done.
