Our Lady Of Pignerol
Country : France
Year : 1098
Adelaide, Countess of Savoy, built this shrine in honor of Our Lady’s Assumption about the year 1098. It is the national shrine of Savoy.
The pious and far-seeing countess anticipated by almost one thousand years the dogma of the Assumption of Our Lady. Mary publicly honored under this beloved title repaid the generosity of her devout Adelaide by answering the pleas of her children, crying to her for help in every need, and answering their prayer, curing their ills and obtaining miracles where human aid was despaired of, but faith conquered. When the Assumption of Our Lady was proclaimed a dogma, the rejoicing at the Pignerol shrine was indescribable.
