Wonderbare Moeder Kapel


NL |


In the twelfth century, according to legend, a Drunense farmer was sowing flax in his field on the Garsweide. Tired of his work and tormented by thirst, he suddenly saw a majestic woman appear before him. He asked her for a drink, and the water she drew from the nearby ditch was the tastiest he had ever drunk. As he quenches his thirst, he feels the love for Mary in his heart and he decides, when the flax is matured, to build a chapel in her honor. When he comes to his field the next day, he sees that the flax has miraculously come to maturity. He plucked a handful of flax and hurried to the pastor. Hardly had this rumor spread among the villagers, or they rushed to the Garsweide to convince themselves. Soon a chapel arose with an image of the mother virgin on the altar. Here Mary answered the prayers of her children.
