MARIAL CONGRESS French Devotion to Our Lady

Nine of the most venerated statues of Our Lady in the districts around Lyons, France, have been taken to pay a visit to, and participate in the triumph of, Our Lady of Fourviere, in Lyons.

This is the most striking of the many acts of devotion which this week have been taking place at the Martel Congress in Lyons.

Enormous crowds from all over France have been taking part in the celebrations, including Cardinal Villeneuve, Archbishop of Quebec, who is on his way home from Rome, and all the French Cardinals and many of the bishops.

The nine " Our Ladys " were each taken on a triumphal tour through the surrounding villages before they were conveyed to the basilica of Our Lady on the top of the steep hill of Fourviere overlocking Lyons and the Rhone.

Link With England

English visitors to the Congress have been interested in the fact that alongside the main basilica there is a chapelshrine to St. Thomas it Becket, who stayed here at leourviere when exiled from England.
