Our Lady Of Moustier

Country :

Year : 1382

Eight or ten leagues from Sisteron, in the direction of Marseilles, France, is the shrine of Our Lady of Moustier.  An ancient tradition records that a lord of the country, captured by the Turks, made a vow to build a chapel in honor of the Blessed Virgin, if she were pleased to deliver him.

The Blessed Virgin heard his prayer; an angel took him on his wings, and carried him back to his country.  The nobleman erected a magnificent chapel to the Blessed Virgin where numerous miracles have been wrought.
