 AN ALMOST FORGOTTEN FIRE
WAS IT REALLY MRS O'LEARY'S COW?
We all remember reading about Mrs. O'Leary's cow and the great fire of Chicago in 1871 but there was another fire about 220 miles to the north that took thousands of lives on the same day, at the same hour, on October 8 1871.

FOR MORE INFORMATION
Read below the events that took this fire to such tragic heights over such a large area and how praying the rosary helped open the gate to two miracles of hope for today. So many remarkable signs that lead us to understand more about the visitation of 'Our Lady of Good Help, Queen of Heaven' in Champion Wisconsin 12 years before the fire. See history links at bottom of page.

OUR LADY OF THE 
IMMACULATE COMCEPTION
Queen of Heaven - Velezquez
 (Diego Velázquez 1618)
+
CONVERSION OF SINNERS
Champion is at the base of Green Bay and Wisconsin's 'Door' Peninsula, a land traveled in the 1670s by Pere Marquette and Luis Joliet in their search for the great river (Mississippi). His dedication to Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception compelled him through unknown territory, to bring the indians to Christ. 
+
 ISAIAH 56:1-2
  1 Thus says the Lord:  Observe what is right, do what is Just, for my salvation is about to come, my Justice is about to be revealed.   2 Happy is the one who does this, whoever holds fast to it: Keeping the Sabbath without profaning it, keeping ones hand from doing evil. 
 
NEW STATE OF WISCONSIN 1848
Mary silently appeared to a very frightened Sister Brise on October 8, 1859 - exactly 12 years to the day before the tragic Peshtigo (WI) Fire - October 8 1871 -  which also burned down the village of Champion Wisconsin, then called Robinsonville.  (And of course the same day as the Great Chicago Fire). 
+
Mary wore a white garment with a golden yellow band around her waist. She introduced herself as "Our Lady of Good Help, Queen of Heaven" She warned we must pray for the conversion of sinners. 'If they do not convert and do penance, My son will be obliged to punish them' (This would be similar to the message given at Lourdes).
+
 THE FIRST APPROVED 
MARIAN APPARITION IN THE US
Bishop Ricken of the Diocese of Green Bay WI Issues a Formal Decree finding them 'worthy of belief'. Marian Apparitions at the Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help become the first and only in the U.S. to be approved by the Church!
+
The First Approved Marian Apparition of the U.S. was confirmed this past Dec 8, 2010  by Bishop David Ricken backed by the Vatican.  Our Lady of Good Help shrine is in Champion Wisconsin in the diocese of Green Bay, right down the road from where we make rosaries. (And with a smile, we might add, the same year the Packers won the Title)

FOR MORE ON THE VISITATION

PSALMS 102
2 LORD, hear my prayer; let my cry come to you.  3 Do not hide your face from me in the day of my distress. Turn your ear to me; when I call, answer me quickly. 4  For my days vanish like smoke; my bones burn away as in a furnace. 
 +
PRAY YOUR ROSARY 
FOR ALL FIRE VICTIMS
We dedicate these rosaries to fire victims, as a part of our series on environmental / weather related tragedies. We hope to encourage people to remember, not only to pray your rosary for protection today but for those who have suffered in the past, for those who suffered sudden death with no time to convert.  And for protection against future events.
+
Uncontrolled fires bring a horrible loss of life and land, scarring people beyond reach.  We see this in war every day. And recently there has been an overwhelming occurrence of forest fires in Texas, California and throughout our nation. A terrible loss of life and land.

  TRUSTING IN ALL
 NATURAL DISASTERS - THE NAME OF JESUS
 38 Jesus was in the stern, asleep on a cushion. They woke him and said to him, “Teacher, do you not care that we are perishing?”  39  He woke up, rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Quiet! Be still!”  The wind ceased and there was great calm.  40  Then he asked them, “Why are you terrified? Do you not yet have faith?”  41   n They were filled with great awe and said to one another, “Who then is this whom even wind and sea obey?”MARK 4:38-41

~   OUR LADY of GOOD HELP I ~
 SMOKY 'GIVRE' AVE  BEADS
From the late 1800s  rosary inspire
by her warning visit 12 years before the Peshtigo fire - to the day.
 (for a larger image, click icons above)
+
AVE BEADS: These old smoky, matte 'Givre' beads, crystal with white inclusions date back to the late 1800s - early 1900s and are chosen because of the same time period  PATER BEADS:The antiqued filigree capped Pater beads remind us of the golden sash she wore as Our Lady of Good Help. The orange cast becomes a precursor of the fires to come. (Faceted Swarovski Crystal - Austria). 

 Aves also symbolize the garment of Mary caught in the translucency of the heavenlies when she visited a young sister in Wisconsin - Setting this to be the first approved apparition in the U.S as of Dec 8, 2010.

  EYE OF CAMERA: The Aves are lighter than shown here, we had to darken a bit to show quality as camera flashes back too much light off of white beads. This is an amazingly beautiful rosary, appears to be much older! The finished rosary took our breath away!

~ THE LINE of FIRE II ~
 CREAMY WHITE FACETED 
Antique Ave beads (late 1800s, time of fire) rosary inspired by the fence of
 protection, where the fire line mysteriously stopped protecting all inside the fence

AVE BEADS: These rare, old antique faceted beads have been dated by our vender as being from the late 19c, about the time of the apparition.  They are from our private collection, just waiting for that perfect rosary and we believe this is the perfect place. Note under some light, there is a faint, green cast to the creamy white beads. Green symbolizes growth which is a beautiful reminder of how the line of fire stopped at the fence. PATER BEADS: Antiqued filigree caps give a richness to the golden faceted Swarovski Crystal. Again, the choice of color symbolizes Our Lady's golden sash on a white garment with a hint of the glowing fiery, orange sky that was to come 12 years later.

  FATIMA MESSAGE
Mary identified herself as, "I am the Lady of the Rosary", and continued, " I have come to warn the faithful to amend their lives and to ask pardon for their sins.  They must not offend our Lord any more, for he is already to grievously offended by the sins of men.  People must say the rosary.  Let them continue saying it every day."
