In 1231, a priest, who was imprisoned during the occupation of the Moors, was told to celebrate the Mass by his curious captors. After starting, he realized that there was no cross, which was required. The Moors became angry but the priest was saved because through an open window, two angels brought the Pectoral Cross of the Patriach of Jerusalem so the Mass could continue. Seeing this, King Abu Zeid who had directed the Mass be said, converted to the true religion. This miracle took place in Cara Vaca Spain.
