Our Lady reportedly appears to Auguste Arnaud, a man in his thirties, married with two children. He didn't faithfully attend Mass on Sundays.

July 8, 1873

Our Lady appears for the second time: Arnaud started working in his vineyard where a crowd of 400 to 600 people waiting. He went to work and take a break. He again took the tool that slipped from his hands. He sat up and grabbed his hat and threw it aside. At the same time as his arm rose into the air, his face became very pale, his hands seemed inordinately elongated, his eyes fixed on something only he could see. He was suddenly moved with lightning speed to the cross (a distance of more than 40 yards.) None of the witnesses rejected this extraordinary fact. This time, the lady was dressed in clothes of gold.

As during her first visit, she spoke in his dialect: "Do not work on Sundays. Blessed is he who believes and unhappy man who does not believe.

We must go in procession to Notre Dame de Gignac. You'll be pleased with your entire family. "

Description of the Virgin

"It was around 7:30, I saw a young woman shows all dressed in white, she wore a fringed belt and her head was crowned with a high crown like a miter. A great white veil came from the top of the crown covering her hands crossing on her chest. The figure of the woman was beautiful, quiet, without expressing neither joy nor sadness. I have not seen him smile. She seemed to be between 25 and 28 years."

During her second apparition, Our Lady was dressed in clothes of gold.


Messages

When Augustus asked her: "Who are you? She answered "I am the Blessed Virgin. Do not be afraid!

She spoke of the purpose of her visit: "You are like a vine disease. You've abandoned Bauzille Saint (patron of the parish whose feast is celebrated May 20th is a holiday that falls on a weekday is postponed to following Sunday. Auguste Arnaud did it was not made to honor the patron saint of his Parish). "We must celebrate his birthday the day it occurs. Next Thursday, you must go in procession to St. Anthony and attend mass. Today at 3 PM, you must go in procession to Notre Dame. You will come in procession each year. Go tell your father and your pastor immediately. In a month I will return to you."

At her second visit she said "Do not work on Sundays. Blessed is he who believes and unhappy man who does not believe.

We must go in procession to Notre Dame de Gignac. You'll be pleased with your entire family."

She slid her rosary on her left hand and his right hand, she gave the benediction: "Let us sing hymns. "

Prayers

Our Lady
Make my soul to be a beautiful vine,
Preserved from disease concerns too material,
Remove the weeds of sin
And bearing fruit forever.

Father Jean-Pierre Gaillard
