More than 60 people gave witness, under oath, to the following story.

It seems that, in 1718, the Forty Hours Devotion was being celebrated in the convent church of the Cordeliers, in Marseilles, France. At one point during the event, the Blessed Sacrament in the monstrance disappeared and, in Its place, the people saw the countenance of the Lord Himself. The figure emanated such brightness, and the simultaneous emotions of mildness and severity so intense, that people could not bear to meet His gaze.
