Nossa Senhora Aparecida
A postcard from 1967 of the miraculous statue of Our Lady of Aparecida, the national patroness of Brazil, whose feast is celebrated today.
When pope Francis was at the basilica of Aparecida last year he spoke of the importance of the devotion for Brazilian Catholics:
"Three fishermen, after a day of catching no fish, found something unexpected in the waters of the Parnaíba River: an image of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception. Whoever would have thought that the site of a fruitless fishing expedition would become the place where all Brazilians can feel that they are children of one Mother?"
