There was a time that the Aletsch glacier was growing and growing. It became very close to the village. Besides, there were many break outs of the Märjelensee: 35 times the break out devastated the village Fieschertal during the years 1700. The inhabiters maked a vow in 1678, in which they promised God and the world, to live properly in order that the glacier should end his growing. One time a year, they prayed during a couple of hours in the forest of Ernen to ask if the glacier would not grow anymore. This prayer took place on the day of the instigator of the jezuïeten, the saint Sint-Ignatius from Loyola; 31 July.
