(Feb) 13. Our Lady of the Hot Oven, in Bourges, so called because in the year 526 a certain Jew, it is said, shut up his son in a heated oven, because he had received Baptism and
the Holy Communion; he was taken out safe and sound, thanks to the protection of Our Lady. A church was built to the Blessed Virgin in memory of this event. (Annales de France en Childebert.)

During the Middle Ages, a frequently illustrated miracle of the Blessed Virgin Mary, was the "Miracle of the Jew of Bourges" [where Our Lady saved a pre-teen Jewish boy, after his father had thrown
him into a fiery oven, upon learning he had been practicing Catholicism]. Late medieval Books of Hours and illustrated miracle texts from England, hold the most detailed examples, of this wonderful event/rescue - that occured in 6th Century Bourges, France.
