Beautiful statue of Our Lady of Perpetual Help.

The tradition of Our Mother of Perpetual Help is traced back to 1495. Stolen from a Cretan monastery by a wine merchant a few years after its creation, it was brought to the church of St. Matthew in Rome. For 300 years, it resided at the church, and even survived the church’s destruction by Napoleon’s army in 1798.  88 years later, Pope Pius IX gave the icon to the Redemptorist congregation at the Church of Saint Alphonsus, where it remains today.

Handmade in Colombia. Hand painted by local Artisans (Widows from the local violence)  and finely crafted. The quality can be seen throughout the workmanship. The detail in wonderful.
