When 4 girls Anna Schulte, Greta Gauseforth (11) (1926-1996) and Maria Gauseforth (13) and Susanna Bruns (+1994) went to church for All Saints Day suddenly perceive a hundred feet a "floating light" to a meter from the ground, then see a "light form" resembling a woman's silhouette. Frightened, they re-entered the church.They reported that The Blessed Virgin had appeared to them with the Divine child in her arms.
Another girl, Anna Schulte, surprised leave the church, explored the place indicated by Margaret and Grete, and "go to the Virgin and Child." The ceremony ends. Maria and Grete, accompanied by Anna and Adele Bruns, fifteen years, and her sister Susanne (died September 22, 1994), they decide to go back to the cemetery.
It's there, between the two cypresses!, Margaret exclaims.
The apparition remained silent. All the girls saw the Virgin except for Adele, who impatiently said, "go back to the house, I do not believe these stories."
Margaret and Grete told their mother and immediately alerted Fr. Staelberg, priest of the parish.
The news was received in village with predictable skepticism and amusement. It wasn’t until the girls shown a dramatic change in their way of life that villagers began to wonder. The girls switched from pleasures and amusements to long and fervent prayer, impatiently waiting for the hour when they would see the Heavenly Vision again. (The Miracle Hunter)
