15th July : Our Lady Of Molanus

Our Lady Of Molanus

Country : Jerusalem

Year : 1099

In the year 1099, the Turks were defeated by Godfrey of Bouillon, who took Jerusalem on this day through the help of Our Lady.  Godfrey as a result was made King of Jerusalem; in gratitude for the victory, Godfrey, as they were about to crown him King of Jerusalem, pushed aside the crown saying, “I cannot wear a diadem in the place where my Lord word a crown of thorns.”

After the victory, clad in white garments, the crusaders expressed in solemn procession, hymns and prayers, their gratitude to the Blessed Mother of God for giving them this singular victory over the enemies of the Church.
