Our Lady of La Salette

The artist is found innocent.

In the church of Saint Mary in Danzig, a statue of the Blessed Virgin is venerated, to which a touching story is attached. It is said that a poor artist, unjustly accused and condemned to death, asked his judges for a few weeks to fulfill a vow he had made. This grace having been granted to him, he knelt down in his dungeon, addressed a fervent prayer to the Virgin, Consoler of the afflicted, and then began to model with clay the image of Her whom he invoked with such sincere faith in his anguish; and his faith revived him, and his piety gave him a happy inspiration. He made a statue of such noble form, he drew the head of his august Patroness with such suavity that the magistrates, invited to come and see it, were amazed. “No,” cried one of them, “it is not possible that the man in whom such ideal sentiment is manifested could have committed the crime of which he is accused. The execution must be stayed and the trial revised.” A new investigation showed that he was indeed innocent. He triumphantly left his prison, and deposited in the church of Saint Mary the statue to which he owed his salvation.

Sign of the Cross

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, and of the Mother of God. Amen.

Preparatory Prayer

O Jesus! We are going to walk with You on the road to Calvary which was so painful for You. Make us understand the greatness of Your sufferings, touch our hearts with tender compassion at the sight of Your torments, in order to increase in us the regret of our faults and the love we wish to have for You.
Deign to apply to all of us the infinite merits of Your Passion, and in memory of Your sorrows, show mercy to the souls in Purgatory, especially to those who are most abandoned.
O Divine Mary, who first taught us to make the Way of the Cross, obtain for us the grace to follow Jesus with the sentiments Your Heart was filled with as You accompanied Him on the road to Calvary. Grant that we may weep with You, and that we may love Your divine Son as You do. We ask this in the name of His adorable Heart. Amen.
