|Summary of narrative|
There is a church dedicated to the Virgin at Laredo. It stands above the sea and many people go there on pilgrimage.
Once, when there was a crowd of men at the church, two sailors started a fight.
They pulled out their knives and were brawling right in front of the altar.
The Virgin paralysed them and they froze in place with their arms outstretched, as if made of metal or stone.
The men repented and begged the Virgin’s mercy.
She heard their prayers and they pardoned each other. Everyone praised the Virgin.
