The Miraculous Powers of Notre-Dame de Boulogne

St. Bernard of Clairvaux and St. Benedict Joseph Labre both were pilgrims at the Shrine of Notre-Dame de Boulogne (Our Lady of Boulogne) in France. See related information at: www.tinyurl.com/N-D-de-B
The original miraculous statue of Our Lady of Boulogne, was almost completely destroyed by the enemies of the Church, during the French Revolution. One hand of the original statue, which was barely connected, was providently saved - and hidden right before the French freemasons sacrilegiously threw the statue of Our Lady into a blazing fire. A small piece of wood from the ancient statue's hand, is in this reliquary (shaped as a hand) pictured above.
Illustration of King Louis XI, in 1479 A.D., presenting Our Lady his humble homage, and bestowing upon Her Shrine/the Church of Our Lady of Boulogne-sur-Mer, a solid golden heart weighing as much as two thousand crowns. This illustrious monarch ordained that all the kings of France, his successors, should make a similar offering on their accession to the crown.

Within the 19th c., Basilica of Notre-Dame de Boulogne [reconstructed after the original Church dedicated to Her from 1090, which Pius V formally declared a Cathedral, was demolished in stages during the French Revolution] is housed the reliquary of the Holy Blood, a masterpiece of 14th c., goldsmithing, attributed to the precious metalsmith, Guillaume Julien. It is the most prestigious work in the Basilica's collection. Created to hold a very important relic [a cloth with the Blood of Christ sent from Jerusalem by the Crusader Godfrey of Bouillon in 1100], it was perhaps gifted by Philip IV of France on the occasion of his daughter's marriage to King Edward II of England, celebrated at Boulogne's Notre-Dame Cathedral in 1308.
