Our Lady of Beauraing

Our Lady of Beauraing (also known as the Virgin of the Golden Heart) is the title of 33 Marian apparitions reported in Beauraing, Belgium, between November 1932 and January 1933 by five children whose ages ranged between 9 and 15. For several years after the apparitions, pilgrims flocked to the small town of Beauraing, province of Namur (Belgium), and many cures were claimed.

The children reported that the lady requested that a chapel be built at the site and stated that I am the Immaculate Virgin. She also desired for pilgrims to come to the site and asked the children (and everyone) to pray, pray, pray, and in one of the last visions revealed her Golden Heart.

In the final vision, the Lady reportedly asked one of the children called Fernande: "Do you love My Son?" and she replied "Yes". She then asked her "Do you love Me?" and she again answered "Yes". The Lady then stated: "Then sacrifice yourself for me." and bade them farewell before the child could reply.

The final approbation for the Marian apparition was granted in 1949 under the direction of the Holy Office by André-Marie Charue, Bishop of Namur, Belgium.[1][2][3]
