Bearing Fruit

This week is Vacation Bible School.  Henry & Karley were signed up and I was going to be a volunteer.  Sophie was able to walk with me in my duties.  But I've learned this week to keep expectations low.  Even though I was one of the leaders, Karley couldn't be one inch away from me.  Rather sweet to have seen her tears, except her tears and fears were an example to her little sister.  So after one brave hour yesterday, I bailed, with my two tearful fearful daughters.  I left my brave school boy on his own.  Yes, that school boy

6.21.11

Today when I picked Henry up we had this conversation:

Henry: "Mom, we made a Tabernacle out of rocks..."  Along with some other materials I couldn't quite get a visual for. 

Mom:  "Really?"

Henry:  Tells me more about the Tabernacle.

Mom:  "Henry, what is in the Tabernacle?"

Henry:  "Jesus"

Love that boy!

Later in our drive as we pass our local church...

Henry:  "Mom, you forgot to say 'Jesus & Mary save souls'"

I guess 3:00 PM snack & Bible is bearing fruit.

Hope you are having a good week.

Our Lady of Good Help Pilgrimage

In a couple of days my friend Mrs. S and I are going to make a pilgrimage to Our Lady of Good Help.  Our Lady of Good Help is the first approved American apparition site.

This is an excerpt from the Our Lady of Good Help website.  I don't seem to be able to put into my own words an accurate description of the site.  If you go to the website I suggest this page as a more detailed description of the apparitions of Our Lady of Good Help.  Below is the official statement declaring this as the first American apparition site:

Bishop David Ricken announced on Wednesday, December 8th, that he officially approves the Marian apparitions that occurred on the the site of the Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help. The announcement was made during a special Mass for the Feast of the Immaculate Conception held at the Shrine which is located at Champion, Wisconsin.

Reading from his decree, the Bishop stated, “I declare with moral certainty and in accord with the norms of the Church that the events, apparitions and locutions given to Adele Brise in October of 1859 do exhibit the substance of supernatural character, and I do hereby approve these apparitions as worthy of belief (although not obligatory) by the Christian faithful."

This declaration makes the Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help at Champion the first and only Marian shrine in the United States that is on the site of an approved apparition of the Blessed Virgin Mary. While the Bishops of Green Bay had given full support of the Shrine throughout its history as a place of prayer and pilgrimage, the Apparitions have never received formal Church approval. Along with his decree on the apparitions, Bishop Ricken further approved the Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help as an official Diocesan Shrine of Green Bay.

If you have a prayer intention I would humbled and honored to offer them during my time there.  Please feel free to leave your request in the comments section or e-mail me at tinafisher5@gmail.com.

I look forward to taking pictures and sharing my own experiences upon my return.

God Bless!
