20th September : Our Lady Of The Silver Foot

Our Lady Of The Silver Foot

Country : France

Year : 1284

At Toul in Lorraine there is an image, which according to an ancient tradition, informed a woman, in the year 1284, of an act of treachery which was being planned against the city, and as a sign of it, the image put out its foot, which was found changed into silver.

The woman informed authorities, and the plot was averted; but the image of Mary retained to this day–its silver foot as proof of help when confidence is placed in her intercession.  Pilgrimages are made to the Lady of the Silver Foot; prayers answered, graces bestowed and miracles wrought.
