In 1810, Mother Saint Michel brought the statue of Our Lady of Prompt Succor (meaning “Quick Help”) from France to New Orleans, and placed her in the chapel of the Old Ursuline Convent on Chartres Street in the French Quarter. From this position of honor, Our Lady has performed many miracles for the inhabitants of New Orleans, especially protecting the city and its citizens from hurricanes and floods. In 1815, the Ursuline nuns of New Orleans prayed to Our Lady of Prompt Succor to secure General Andrew Jackson’s victory in the Battle of New Orleans. Pray to Our Lady of Prompt Succor when you need help—and quick, like when you are searching for answers during a test or quiz!
