More here about Our Lady of Laus. And here.

As for Saint Peter Julian Eymard, he was scarcely eleven years old when by repeated insistence he obtained permission to make a sixty kilometer pilgrimage on foot while begging for his bread. He spent nine days at the holy shrine in preparation for his First Communion. Later he wrote, "That is where I first came to know and love Mary." He had a great devotion for his "Good Mother of Laus" all his life. In times of crushing fatigue, he loved to retire to that shrine.

Our Lady of Laus, Refuge of sinners, look down with kindness and compassion upon the physical and moral miseries of our age! Have mercy on thy children and deign to convert us all entirely to the love of thy Divine Son! Adapted from Magnificat Vol. XL, No. 5 and Vol. XXXVI, No. 5

I just read In the Light of the Monstrance by St. Peter Eymard a few months ago. All the series in the Eymard Library is absolutely wonderful, and I highly recommend them. ~ susie
