Saint Mary,

Our Lady of the Cape

Patron Saint of Quebec

Extract from Our Lady of the Cape:  “The three men swore an oath that what they had seen had truly taken place, and their statement is stored on parchment in the library of the sanctuary to this day. Pierre Lacroix’s testimony reads: “…After praying for a while, I looked up at the statue of the Blessed Virgin which was facing directly towards me. As I did so, I saw most distinctly the statue with its eyes wide open in a most natural manner. .. I examined this closely without saying anything. Then Vicar-General Desilets, leaving his place on my right, went across to Fr. Frédéric and I heard him say, ‘Do you see it?’  ‘Yes:’ he said. ‘the statue has its eyes open, hasn’t it? But can this really be true?’ I then told them that I had seen the same thing. And I make this solemn declaration believing it in conscience to be true and knowing that it has the same force and effect as if made upon oath. After the miracle of the ice bridge and the apparition of the statue, pilgrims started to converge on Cap de la Madeleine. Fr. Frédéric immediately began a mission to preach the name of the Blessed Virgin throughout the nation, and in 1902 he encouraged the diocesan bishop to install the Oblate Missionaries of Mary Immaculate to supervise the pilgrimages and to be stewards of the shrine.” See video: Our Lady of the Cape, and Novena Prayer to Our Lady of the Cape.
