The Man who Scorned the Virginís Slipper (Fol ť o que cuida)

   A convent at Soissons owned a shoe belonging to the Virgin. A man questioned the authenticity of the relic.
   As punishment, his mouth was twisted so that he was in agony.
   He made a pilgrimage to see the shoe.
   He repented of his blasphemy.
   The abbess healed him by rubbing the shoe across his face.
   He left his masterís service and became a servant at the convent.
