Our Lady of the Miracle

I stopped to say a prayer this afternoon at the altar of Our Lady of the Miracle, which I previously mentioned in this post.

Here is an interesting plaque in that church, commemorating the miracle in French. My translation follows the poor-quality cell phone photo:

20 JANUARY 1842
ALPHONSE RATISBONNE OF STRASBOURG
CAME HERE AN OBSTINATE JEW.
THIS MADONNA APPEARED TO HIM
JUST AS YOU SEE HER [in the painting over the altar].
HAVING FALLEN DOWN A JEW,
HE ROSE AGAIN A CHRISTIAN.

O STRANGER,
BRING HOME WITH YOU THE PRECIOUS REMEMBRANCE
OF THE MERCY OF GOD
AND THE POWER OF THE MADONNA!
