September 9 – Apparitions in Pellevoisin (France, 1876) 

“She still loves you since she never stopped loving me” 


On September 8, 1914, feast of Our Lady’s Nativity, Marcelle Lanchon, 23, received an apparition of Our Lady at the Chapel of the Armies in Versailles (France) on the same day that the Virgin Mary stopped the Germans on the Marne, near Paris.

The visionary, who witnessed more apparitions, later took the name of Marie France as a consecrated virgin in the Pious Union of the Adorers of the Sacred Heart that she had founded. She handed down a prayer to recite for France: "My Son, forgive her, she still loves you since she never stopped loving me." As well as this promise from the Virgin:

"My Son asks that you would make images and statues representing me thus (i.e. as Queen of France) and that the people invoke me under the title of Our Lady of France. If they answer this new desire of His Divine Heart, France will again become particularly mine, I will take it forever under my maternal protection and my Son will delight in spreading abundant blessings over the land."

Bishop Roland Gosselin, the local bishop, gave permission to print the image of "Mary Queen of France" with the prayer revealed during the apparitions.
