Cantiga 166 of the Cantigas de Santa Maria of Alfonso X
The Lame Man Healed at Salas
Because of his sins, a man suffered an illness that twisted his limbs and left him crippled.
He stayed that way for five years.
He vowed that if he were cured he would take a quantity [a libra] of wax to Salas every year.
He was immediately cured.
Without delay, he went to Salas with the wax. Although he had not walked for a long time, he was nimble and felt no pain.
They thanked and praised Mary for the miracle
