Blessed Oil

Laus (Hautes-Alpes) 


 In 1664 the Blessed Virgin appeared to a young girl in Laus in the French Alps. A series of miraculous healings followed from 1665 on, paralysies and healings of eye pathologies especially. During the apparitions, the Blessed Mother asked for a church and a house for priests to be built, with the intension of drawing people to greater conversion, especially through the sacrament of penance. A new element appeared in 1666: oil from the sanctuary lamp which healed eye diseases, when put on the eyelid.
