I am very excited to have just learned about the apparitions of Our Lady of Beauraing. She promised to convert sinners. I've got a big list for her! I'm guessing I'm not the only one that did not know about her, so I wrote an article about her for the National Catholic Register. I'll share a summary here to spread the good news, but to learn more, check out the article which includes a number of links for additional information.
Our Lady of Beauraing, also known as the Virgin of the Golden Heart, appeared to 5 children in Beauraing, a town of about 2,000 in Belgium between November 29, 1932 and January 3, 1933.

Three times the Blessed Mother urged the children to pray. In her final apparition she spoke to Fernande Voisin: Do you love my Son? Do you love me? Then sacrifice yourself for me.
The apparitions were approved on July 2, 1949 by the Bishop of Namur. Also approved were “the miraculous nature of two cures obtained through the intercession of Our Lady of Beauraing, occurring in the months which followed the events at Beauraing, among many other cases of spiritual and temporal favors.”
The feast day of Our Lady of Beauraing was placed on the liturgical calendar on August 22, which had been the feast day of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. It was later called The Queenship of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
