It was said that pilgrims came in great number from Italy and France. Bishop Palletis, following the Council of Trent (1545-1563), requested that a commission of theologians be formed to examine the miracles happening at Laghet. They were assisted by a lawyer and a doctor. Twenty-two of the thirty-six cases brought to them from the past 18 months were considered to be miraculous. On December 26, 1653, worship was officially authorized, and on April 16, 1654, the official pilgrimage to Laghet was organized by the Bishop and led by the Consuls of Nice.  A rare, unique  medal of pilgrimage, prayer, and miracles.
