9th February : Our Lady Of The Bells

Our Lady Of The Bells

Country : France

Year :

On the octave day of the Purification, it is reported that the bells in the Cathedral of Saintes, France, rang out most sweetly of themselves.  The sacristans, having run to the church, saw several unknown men holding lighted tapers and melodiously chanting hymns in honor of the Blessed Virgin, who is venerated in a chapel of this church.  Approaching softly, they—the men who had run to the church—begged the last of these men carrying lighted candles, to give them one in proof of the miracle they had seen.  The light-bearers graciously complied.

This taper is religiously preserved in that church up to this day.
