(Feb) 10. Our Lady of the Dove, near Bologna, in Italy, built, it is said, in the place marked out by a dove, who kept for two days flying round some masons [stone
workers/builders] who were at work, seeming to them to indicate a certain spot. (Trip. Cour., nomb. 107.)
it to enlarge): Holy Card of the Most Chaste Dove - Our Lady.
Today commemorates a miracle witnessed
by many in Bologna, Italy - showing Heaven's favor for the famous Northern Italian city. Bologna was at the forefront of establishing (True) Catholic Universities in Christendom. Many are unaware that the sessions of The Holy Council of Trent were held not
only in Trent (Trento), Italy - but also in Bologna.
The ancient city has provided the Church with numerous saints - such as St. Catherine
of Bologna, and St. Dominic, founder of the Dominicans, whom Our Lady gave the Church [through him], the devotion of the Most Holy Rosary.
