Our Lady of Pontmain (1871)

During the Franco-Prussian War, when the German army was about to overrun the French village of Pontmain, Our Lady appeared in the sky to six children.  She gave them a message of hope: “…pray my children.  God will hear you in a short time.  My Son permits Himself to be moved.”  Pontmain was saved and within ten days the armistice was signed and the bloodshed was over.
