Jan 17 Our Lady of Peace in Rome: Sixtus IV Prayer Heard

(Jan) 17. Our Lady of Peace, in Rome. In the year 1483, the Duke of Calabria having besieged Rome to revenge himself on Sixtus IV., for his having prevented him from assisting the Duke of Ferrara against the Venetians, the Pontiff had recourse to the Queen of Heaven, and engaged by vow to build her a church under the title of Our Lady of Peace, if she would vouchsafe to deliver the city from the siege, and restore peace to Italy. His prayer being heard, he accomplished his vow, and commenced a church, which was finished by his successor, Innocent VIII. (Gabriel Pennotus in hist. tripartita Canon. regul., 1. iii., cap. 33)
