Our Lady of Good Hope (1859)
In 1859 the Blessed Mother appeared to a Belgian girl near Green Bay, Wisconsin. The Blessed Mother identified herself as ‘The Queen of Heaven” and asked the young lady to pray for the conversion of sinners and further stated teach the young children how to make the sign of the cross, and teach them about the catechism and the sacraments. Her exact statement is recorded as follows:
“I am the Queen of Heaven who prays for the conversion of sinners, and I wish you to do the same. You received Holy Communion this morning and that is well. But you must do more. Make a general confession and offer Communion for the conversion of sinners… Gather the children in this wild country and teach them what they should know for salvation… Teach them their catechism, how to sign themselves with the sign of the Cross, and how to approach the sacraments; that is what I wish you to do. Go and fear nothing, I will help you.”
The Blessed Mother is under the title of Our Lady of Good Hope.
