Jan 15 Our Lady of the Porch (Rome) An Image from Heaven

(Jan) 15. Our Lady of the Porch, in Rome, where may be seen an image said to have been brought from heaven by an angel to the blessed Galla, widow of the Consul Symmachus. (Ex monument. S. Mariæ in Portic.)

 

Image (click it to enlarge): The sacred image [icon] of Our Lady, brought by an angel to Blessed Galla in 524 A.D., which is housed in one of the most famous Churches in Rome, the Santa Maria in Portico.

 

Through the ministry of an angel, the icon miraculously appeared in 524 to the blessed Galla, a Roman woman who was assisting Catholics that were stricken with the plague. An oratory or church was founded at the site, c. 525, under the papacy of John I. The structure was created to house this sacred icon of the Virgin Mary. The icon of the Madonna is small, about 9 inches high, and is of silver-gilt and champlevé enamel.

 

Note: The heavenly image of Our Lady of the Porch has been carried in processions since 590. It stopped the plague in Rome in 524 and protected the The Eternal City from a deadly earthquake in 1703.
