20th April : Our Lady Of Schier

Our Lady Of Schier

Country :

Year :

Arnaud, the odd son of the Bavarian House of Schier, sullen and disgruntled, left the dining hall before the meal was finished.  He did not favor the idea of giving the castle to the Virgin.  Why did the family wish to give up the ancestral home?  And for a Lady shrine at that!  He wanted no more of this continued discussion on the subject.  On he walked, oblivious of where, nursing his grievance against the Mother of God.

The church of Our Lady of Schier in Bavaria—was built on the spot where stood the castle.  Which those of the House of Schier voluntarily conceded to our Lady, all except Arnaud, who in punishment of his obstinacy, was drowned in a neighboring lake.
