Our Lady Of Bows
Country : England (London)
Year : 1071
Our Lady of Bows is a shrine in London. It is explained that Mary’s image there, having been carried away by a storm together with more than 600 houses in the year 1071, fell uninjured with such violence that it broke into the pavement and sunk more than 20 feet into the earth, whence it was never possible to draw it out.
The shrine is, therefore, an underground memorial to Mary and now forms a possible air-raid shelter with a shrine. Our Blessed Mother has anticipated modern warfare by one thousand years. She always provides a refuge for her children.
