In addition to this, you need to know more about it.

Yet the trees

taught me a lot:

sometimes on time,

sometimes on animals,

sometimes on the Great Spirit ”

Dressed in a white dress crossed by three fine blue reflections. Her head, from which thin rays of light emerge forming like a crown, and on December 29, between her arms, her illuminated heart appears, like a heart of gold.

She appears 30 times until January 3, 1933

On December 17, 1933, she wanted a chapel to be built and wanted people to come here on pilgrimage.

On July 2, 1949, after a meticulous investigation, which lasted 17 years, Mgr Charue, then bishop of Namur, recognized the supernatural nature of the facts and authorized the public worship of Notre Dame de Beauraing. Every year, the weekend of August 22, commemorative days.

Beauraing is located about thirty kilometers from Forrières.
