The Miraculous Powers of Notre-Dame de Boulogne

Godfrey Credits His Crusade Victory to O.L. of Boulogne

Statue of renowned Catholic military leader of the First Crusade Godfrey of Bouillon (1060 -1100 A.D.),

located at The Place Royale in Brussels - directly in front of the Saint-Jacques-sur-Coudenberg Church.

 

Godfrey, a French nobleman, was born in the city graced by Our Lady [Boulogne-sur-mer], to St. Ida. He promptly followed Pope Urban II’s urgent call for a Crusade to reclaim the Holy Land from the invader infidel Mohammedans. Before heading for the First Crusade, Godfrey prayed in the city of his birth, before Notre-Dame de Boulogne, asking for her powerful intercession/protection during the forthcoming crusading campaign battle(s).


Following his military success of the capturing of Jerusalem, occurring on July 15, 1099, Godfrey, the Duke and Advocate of the Holy Sepulchre [note: in deep humility, he refused to be called the King of Jerusalem, in deference to Our Blessed Lord], attributed his victory and symbolically offered the Crown of Jerusalem to ‘Our Lady of Molanus’ and ‘Our Lady of the Sea at Boulogne’.
