5th October : Our Lady Of Buch

Our Lady Of Buch

Country :

Year :

The shrine of Our Lady of Buch is in the Pine Mountains in Guinne.  The sea cast the image upon the sands, while St. Thomas, of the order of St. Francis, was praying in behalf of two vessels which he saw in danger of perishing.

He respectfully received this image and deposited it in a small chapel which he built there.  Many miracles have been wrought through devotion to Mary at the shrine.

Mary is particularly interested in seafarers and folk living near waters.  She who was so familiar with the Sea of Galilee and the profession of the twelve pillars of her Son’s Church; still is vigilant for their welfare and happiness.
