Saint Mary, Our Lady of Good Help: Patron Saint of Washington  (Feast Date: August 15) Extract from Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help: “Adele Brise was born in Belgium in 1831. Together with her parents, she immigrated to Wisconsin in 1855. In early October of 1859, Adele reported seeing a woman clothed in white and standing between two trees, a hemlock and a maple. Adele described the woman as surrounded by a bright light, clothed in dazzling white with a yellow sash around her waist and a crown of stars above her flowing blond locks.[3] She was frightened by the vision and prayed until it disappeared. When she told her parents what she had seen, they suggested that a poor soul might be in need of prayers.[4] The following Sunday, which was October 9, 1859, she saw the apparition a second time while walking to Mass in the community of Bay Settlement. Her sister and another woman were with her at the time but neither of them saw anything. She asked the parish priest for advice, and he told her that if she saw the apparition again, she should ask it, “In the Name of God, who are you and what do you wish of me?’ Returning from Mass that same day, she saw the apparition a third time, and this time asked the question she was given. The lady replied, ‘I am the Queen of Heaven, who prays for the conversion of sinners, and I wish you to do the same.’[5] Adele Brise was also given a mission to ‘gather the children in this wild country and teach them what they should know for salvation.’” See also: Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help.
