On a winter evening in 1871, two brothers in the village of Pontmain, France saw a beautiful lady surrounded by stars in the field outside of their home. Although their parents didn't see the lady, they trusted in the Lord and knew she was there. The family prayed in front of the lady as two nuns from the convent next door walked over. The nuns saw Our Lady too. After this apparition, news spread quickly and a crowd gathered. Eventually a banner unfolded in the air with the words “Pray, my children, God will answer your prayers very soon. He will not allow you to be touched.” After this, a red cross with the wounded body of Christ appeared before the virgin who held it tenderly. The crowd began to cry. With this, a white veil was cast over the vision, and the virgin left. The children and nuns could no longer see her and knew it was finished.
At this time, the Franco-Prussian war was taking place as the Prussians attempted to destroy France. At the exact hour of this apparition of Our Lady, a division of Prussian soldiers preparing to attack was given orders to retire. To this day, no reason of this retreat has been found.
A Cathedral was erected on the ground where Notre Dame de Pontmain first appeared. Each year, thousands of her children visit to receive hope from their loving mother.
