ALLOUEZ — Michael O’Neill, an expert on miracles and apparitions, is again traveling the world visiting Marian apparition sites, including the National Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help in Champion. 

O’Neill, known as “The Miracle Hunter,” is hosting a new series on EWTN titled “Explore with the Miracle Hunter.” The program will air as a weekly series starting in March 2022. Until then, episodes are aired on feast days and commemoration dates.

On Saturday, Oct. 9, the 162nd anniversary of the apparition of Our Lady of Good Help to Adele Brise, EWTN will air O’Neill’s episode titled “Explore the Miracle Hunter: Champion.”

“We are traveling all over the world for the series, but wanted to feature two places from the United States — Champion and New Orleans (Our Lady of Prompt Succor),” O’Neill told The Compass in an email. The new series will “bring (miracles) close to home and remind people that miracles happen everywhere. This also gives people some inspiration to check out the shrines in the United States.”

O’Neill’s first project focusing on the National Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help was a documentary, “The Miracles of Champion,” which aired on EWTN in 2018. The new episode on the shrine will air on Saturday, Oct. 9, at 4:30 p.m. A promotional video is available for viewing on YouTube.

According to O’Neill, “These half-hour travel programs follow my worldwide visits to some places in the world of miracles and present these famous occasions of the supernatural with beautiful high resolution footage and realistic recreations. Some of these scenes are quite remarkable — as never before has the Sacred Heart of Jesus or a eucharistic host turning to flesh been depicted in such detail on film.”
