In 1613 A.D., a Spanish sailor who lived a very wicked life, named Francis
Lopez, was severely wounded and left for dead in a remote Spanish territory. He cried out unceasingly to Our Lady for her to bring him a priest, so as to hear his last confession. His prayer was heard by Our Lady in a remarkable manner - a priest was summonsed - he made his confession, and then died.
