Setting: Cudejo near Santander Protagonist(s): a crippled man

A man was crippled so badly that he could not use his limbs and was confined to bed.

He prayed to the Virgin continuously.

She appeared to him and told him to have himself carried to the church. She told him to have her mass sung and promised him that as soon as he saw the Body of Christ, he would be healed.

He asked the beautiful figure to identity herself, and she told him that she was the rnMother of God. Then she went away.

The man did as she had instructed and was healed.

He ran straight up to the altar and everyone began to praise the Virgin.
