APPEARANCE OF SAINT MICHELE ARCANGELO (about 496) on Mount Gargano in Puglia. According to tradition, a wealthy landowner who had lost a bull found him in front of a cave on the mountain; because he could not approach him to bring him back to the barn, he shot an arrow, but this miraculously deflected and turned back, wounding the man himself who had struck. The bishop, informed of what had happened, ordered him to observe three days of prayer and penance, at the end of which he had the vision of the Archangel who claimed the cave under his protection, and provided that the holy place would not have to ever again be killed any animals. Today that place is the Sanctuary of Monte Sant'Angelo di Puglia. Commemoration on May 8. Colored engraving, Italy 1886
