Setting: Rocamadour Protagonist(s): pilgrims to Rocamadour

Some pilgrims took lodging at an inn and ordered bread, wine and meat for dinner.

Then they went to the church to pray.

A servant girl stole one of the nine pieces of meat.

On their return, the pilgrims discovered that the meat was missing and asked the Virgin to recover it.

The piece of meat jumped up and down, striking the sides of the chest in which it was hidden.

The pilgrims rejoiced, recovered the meat, and hung it from a silk cord in front of the Virgin’s altar at Rocamadour.
