About 44 AD, theVirgin Mary, who was still living in Jerusalem at the time, bi-located andappeared to him in a vision to boost his morale. In it, she was atop a columnor pillar, which was being carried by angels. That pillar is believed to be thesame one venerated inside the Basilica.

Since the 12th-century, pilgrims have been drawn to the mountain to venerate themiraculous statue of the Black Madonna. According to Catholic tradition, thestatue of the Black Virgin of Montserrat was carved by St. Luke around 50 ADand brought to Spain. It was later hidden from the Moors in a cave, where itwas rediscovered by shepherds in 880 AD. They saw a bright light and heardheavenly music that eventually led them to the grotto and the statue. TheBishop of Manresa was present at the discovery and suggested that it bemoved to Manresa, but the small statue was discovered to be so heavy it couldnot be lifted. Thus the Virgin had indicated her will to stay on Montserrat to bevenerated there. In the 11th century, the abbot-bishop Oliba founded amonastery on the mountain of Montserrat next to one of the chapels wherethe Benedictine Abbey is still preserved.
