23rd August : Our Lady Of Victory Of Valois

Our Lady Of Victory Of Valois

Country : France

Year : 1328

On August 23 in the year 1328, Philip of Valois, being surrounded by Flemings near Mount Cassel, had recourse to the Blessed Virgin, who immediately delivered him from that danger.

Out of gratitude for this favor, when he made his entry into Paris, he went straight to Notre Dame and going into the church on horseback he proceeded the whole length of the nave to the crucifix, and there laid down his arms.  The picture of this monarch on horseback was for a long time to be seen in that church, to which he gave a revenue of 100 livres, to be levied on his domain of Gatinais.
