Persons associated with this Event:
(Missionary; archbishop of the Frisians, 695-739; abbot of Echternach, 697/698-739) : After prayers, fraternal greetings and peaceful admonitions, [Willibrord 1] went round the individual rooms of the brethren (Anonymi 1180) in case anything had to be corrected in them. Wanting to explore, he also entered the wine-cellar, where he found a little bit of wine in a cask, into which he thrust his staff with a prayer of blessing and [then] went out. The same night the wine began to rise in the vessel and pour over the rim of the cask. [The next morning] he instructed the cellarer (Anonymous 396) that he should not proclaim the miracle he had seen before the day of his [sc. Willibrord 1's] death.
(Cellarer in monasterium where wine rose in the tun) : Astonished on seeing [the rise of the wine], the cellararer dared not hide what he recognized as resulting by Divine mercy from the blessing of His servant. Next morning he ran and threw himself at the feet of the holy father [sc. Willibrord 1] and confessed what he had seen.
(Brethren at Echternach)
