December 1st ~ Our Lady of Ratisbon, Bavaria ~ 1842
A French Jew named Alphonse Rathisbonne was not a religious man. He was an intellectual who was not interested, nor believed in anything spiritual. This was not uncommon in the 19th century, however unfortunate. Alphonse’s brother Theodore was quite the opposite, converting to Catholicism and later even became a priest!
In the year 1841, Alphonse went to Rome where he met Baron de Bussiere who asked him to wear a Miraculous medal and recite St. Bernard’s prayer the Memorare daily. Alphonse agreed to oblige the Baron and did as he was asked.
On January 20, 1842 Monsieur de Bussiere saw Alphonse walking along the street. Wanting to be polite, Monsieur de Bussiere invited him into his carriage. Monsieur de Bussiere was headed towards Saint Andrea delle Fratee church to meet with one of the priests there. Alphonse went into the church with him.
Alphonse began to get rather bored in the church. He wandered about aimlessly, trying to kill the time. Suddenly, all but one part of the church seemed plunged in darkness. The only light there was was shining on the chapel. Looking there, Alphonse was astonished to she the Blessed Mother bathed in the light. He started going closer to her and she motioned for him to kneel.
As he knelt, he suddenly became aware of the sad state of his soul. He longed to be a part of Christ’s church. He saw finally that mankind had been redeemed by the Blood of Jesus. The Blessed Mother had not said a word to Alphonse, but all of these things came rushing through his heart.
Shortly after this occurrence, Alphonse was baptized a Catholic. He devoted the rest of his life to converting others to the faith.
