Relevant Radio's Miracle Hunter, Michael O'Neill, to Present with Fathers of Mercy at Miracle of the Fire Celebration at Champion Shrine

About this Event

The TV and radio personality known as the Miracle Hunter, Michael O'Neill, will return to The National Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help, America's Church-approved Marian Apparition Site in Champion, Wi , for the celebration of one of the first graces pilgrims and worshippers at the Shrine experienced on Oct. 8, 1871 when the Great Fire that ravaged the area surrounding the Shrine, spared the Shrine grounds and the people praying the rosary there.

O'Neill, who hosted in 2018, Miracles of Champion, a documentary that chronicled four stories of graces claimed by pilgrims through Mary's intercession at Champion Shrine, appeared in March of 2018 on the third hour of the TODAY Show to discuss these claims.

He will host the Miracle of the Fire Celebration with The Fathers of Mercy at Champion on the evening of Oct. 8. beginning at 6:30 PM with his talk, followed by an account of the evening of Oct. 8, 1871 by Father David Wilton, Superior General of the Fathers of Mercy, Kentucky, the religious order of priests in residence at the Shrine. An evening rosary procession by candle light will take place at dusk Oct. 8 on Shrine grounds, with all-night adoration and rosary prayed on the hour, every hour , Oct. 8th, into the morning of Oct. 9th, when there is Benediction.

On this eighth day of the National Novena to Our Lady of Good Help, we will pray , as follows, for the return of those away from the sacraments and for a renewed religious fervor :

Today we pray for the return of those away from the sacramental life of the Church and for a renewed religious fervor among the Catholic faithful. Adele was instructed to make a general confession and offer her communion for the conversion of sinners. She was called to participate in the sacramental life of the Church and to bring others to the sacraments through catechesis. Adele was also told to gather the children and teach them how to approach the sacraments.

O Lady of Good Help, today I entrust to your intercession those who are away from the practice of their Catholic faith and for a renewal of religious fervor among all Catholics. Throughout all your many appearances, you have always directed your children to the sacraments. Often at these holy sites, people return to the sacrament of Penance, perhaps after being away for many years. There is a spiritual hunger in our world that can only be satiated by Christ, the sacraments, and the Word of God.

O Mary, please touch the hearts of all those who have fallen away from the sacraments; grant them the desire for Confession so that they can worthily receive your Son again in the Eucharist. O Mary, please pray also for a renewed religious fervor among the Catholic faithful. May we never take the sacraments for granted, especially the Eucharist, and may we always receive your Son worthily in Holy Communion. Please accept my prayers as reparation for those who receive the Eucharist without examining their conscience. Through your intercession, Mary, may God’s holy people realize again the treasure of the sacraments of the Church, through Christ our Lord. Amen
