|Summary of narrative|
A knight, who was the loyal servant of the Virgin, had a son whom he loved dearly.
One day, another knight killed the boy.
The father, stricken with grief, seized the murderer.
He took him to the very place his son had been killed. He tried to kill the man, but he could not.
The knight took the man prisoner and entered a church.
As soon as he saw the statue of the Virgin, he released him. The statue bowed and said, “Thank you.”
