30th March : Our Lady Of Auvergne

Our Lady Of Auvergne

Country :

Year :

One night, while St. Bonet, bishop of Clermont in Auvergne, remained in the church to pray, Our Lady appeared to him, holding a chasuble, and bade him offer the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.

The Saint leaned against a pillar as if to hide himself; when the stone of the pillar became soft and formed a hollow place for him, which is seen to this day.  Mary, having obliged him to say Mass, gave him after it was over, the selected chasuble which she had brought from Heaven by angels.  This heavenly present is still to be seen at Clermont, where it is preserved with great care.
