The Story of Our Lady of Sauvagnac

The title, established in the 12th century, derives from a sculpture is wood preserved in the Chaple Notre-Dame-de-Sauvagnac at Saint-Leger-la-Montagne (Haute-Vienne) in the regioin Limousin in west-central France, about 18 miles from Limoges in the mountains of Ambazac. The chapel and shrine in the Diocese of Limoges became a major pilgrimage destination for the faithful from the surrounding area. The Sauvagnac name has its origins in the town of Sauvagnac in the Charente department in the region of Poitou-Charentes in southwestern France.

According to the legend, a knight was returning home from Crusade when his boat was hit by a tempest. Traveling with the knight was certain hermit, a long-time companion of Etienne de Muret (St. Stephen of Muret), who lived on a mountain at Sauvagnac. As the story goes, the knight was saved through the prayers of the hermit; and, in gratitude for his life, the knight built a chapel at Saint-Leger that he dedicated to Our Lady, at the same time acknowledging the prayers of the Hermit of Sauvagne.

The sculpture depicts the Blessed Mother, seated with the Child standing on her right knee. She holds a scepter in her hand left. The Child gives a blessing with His right hand and holds a globe in His left. Both are looking at the scepter. In another popular portrayal of Notre Dame de Sauvagnac, the Blessed Mother appears to be standing with the Christ Child in her right arm and a scepter in her left hand. Both Mother and Child are crowned. The title is also known as Our Lady of Sauvagnac. On July 22, 1951, Monsignor Rastouil, Bishop of Limoges, solemnly blessed the statue of Our Lady on behalf of the Pope at St. Maurice, France, is the Priory of Notre Dame de Sauvagnac of the Congregation of Our Lady of Hope from the Motherhouse in Amiens.


Devotion of the Marian Shrines...

"Let the faithful remember that true devotion consists neither in sterile and transitory affection, nor in a certain vain credulity, true devotion proceeds from true faith that leads to recognition of the dignity of the Mother of God, and grows to love the Mother of filial love and pursue the imitation of her virtues. "
(Lumen Gentium, 67)
