"17 August [ 1873 ], an unforgettable day: the great pilgrimage of the Catholic worker circles to Notre Dame de Liesse... It was like a view of the Catholic avant-garde of France. The men sang and prayed... The workers of Val de Bois had come with their fanfares, the miners of Lens, Anzin and Béthune with their symbolic mine lamps. It was like a dream, like the vision of ancient Catholic France." (NHV X/5f)
