Shrine of St. John Berchmans

In 1866, Mary Wilson, a novice in the Religious of the Sacred Heart, was suffering from a prolonged illness. As her health continued to fail, the nuns offered a novena to John Berchmans, a Jesuit priest from Belgium who had died at an early age. After eight days, she was near death, anointed and assigned a nun to sit with her the night as it was sure to be her last. The next morning she was sitting in bed and cured. She told of a vision she had of John Berchmans, which was documented and ultimately recognized by the Catholic Church leading to his canonization. Today, it is possible to visit the Shrine of St. John Berchmans located on the grounds of one of America's oldest Catholic schools—the Academy of the Sacred Heart in Grand Coteau.

The only miracle recognized by the Catholic church in the United States
