iPellevoisin is a small town between Chateauroux and Tours in the diocese of Bourges, about 3 hours from Paris.
The Virgin Mary appeared to Estelle Faguette 15 times between February and December 1876 after she wrote her a letter asking for healing. She was healed and Mary called for the devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus with the scapular (9th apparition). The scapular is the Heart of Jesus that clothes the heart of Mary. We are reminded that Mary leads us to the Merciful Jesus. Therefore we are called to leave our heavy hearts, to take courage and to trust because we are the chosen ones! “Do not fear. You know that you are my daughter,” Mary says to Estelle, teaching her, encouraging her. In the last vision Mary tells her that she will always be invisibly close to her.
At Pellevoisin one is called to courage, trust and calm as well as to opening up our hearts to the graces that Mary wants to give us from the Sacred Heart of Jesus, the treasures of the Son. “See these graces that I shower on those who will wear the scapular with trust.” (15th apparition)
An annual pilgrimage began immediately and has continued to this day, on the last weekend in August in memory of the 9th apparition of the Virgin Mary to Estelle Faguette.
