Our Lady Of The Grand Return

Today is the Feast of Our Lady of the Great Return, a little known feast dating back to the seventh century. I certainly never heard of it and am grateful to the American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property for making me aware of it.

This rebirth of the Faith that followed the Grand Return was not a Catholicism impregnated with the modern spirit. Father Beaurin described the spirit of the Grand Return as a rebirth of the medieval Faith and the spirit of the Crusades.

The Bishop Paul Rémond of Nice affirmed this about the Grand Return: “It is not a triumphal cortege, comprised of processions, or of grandiose manifestations… It is much greater than that: the Grand Return is a testimony of filial affection and thanksgiving to our benefactress in Heaven. It is a passing mission, a conquering crusade.”
