Setting: Vilasirga Protagonist(s): a Count

A French count tried to enter the Church of the Virgin of Vilasirga.

His knights entered the building, but the count could not because he had not confessed all of his sins.

People tried to push him into the church, but blood flowed from his mouth and nose.

The count repented and made his confession.

The count entered the church.

The people, witnessing the miracle, rejoiced.
