11th January : Our Lady Of Bessiere

Our Lady Of Bessiere

Country :

Year :

Among the many miracles said to have taken place at the shrine of Our Lady of Bessiere, in Limousin, France, is one told of a certain heretic who had derided the devotion paid to Our Lady.  He would waylay pilgrims, mock them, sneer at them and taunt them with sarcastic reproach and ridicule.

He was severely punished one day by seeing on his return home, his house go up in flames before his very eyes.  All attempts to put out the flames were fruitless.  His house was consumed without anybody being able to discover whence the fire originated.

What a blessing and joy to the people of Egypt to have the Holy Family living amongst them!  How this must have stirred up their zeal and courage!
