29th January : Our Lady Of Chatilion-Sur-Seine

Our Lady Of Chatilion-Sur-Seine

Country : France

Year :

St. Bernard is said to have had a great devotion to Our Lady of Chatilion-sur-Seine, because of a miracle which was wrought by the Blessed Virgin in his favor.

Bernard, the third of a family of seven children, was educated with particular care, because while yet unborn, a devout man had foretold his great destiny.  At the age of nine he was sent to a famous school in France at Chatilion-sur-Seine, kept by the secular priests of Saint-Vorles.  No one speaks as sublimely of the Queen of Heaven as he does.  Mary appeared to Bernard as he wrote and inspired him with heavenly words and wisdom.  The most hardened sinners, heretics and agnostics Mary brought to him and she proved a bulwark to his efforts to lead men to her and to Christ, her Divine Son.
