Feast of Sts Simon and Jude Apostles of Christ, the Lord of Miracles and Memorials of the Saints – 28 October

St Jude Thaddeus Apostle (Feast)

St Simon the Apostle/the Zealot (Feast)

Lord of Miracles/Señor de los Milagros de Nazarenas:   A mid-17th-century painting of the Crucifixion that is venerated in Lima, Peru and its celebration involves one of the largest processions in the world.

It was painted by an unnamed African taken to Peru as a slave from what is now Angola. Above the cross is the Holy Spirit and God the Father.   Below and to the right of Jesus is His mother, the Virgin Mary with her heart pierced by a sword of sorrow.   Kneeling and weeping at the foot of the cross is St Mary Magdalene.

The name originated on 13 November 1655 when everything around it was destroyed in an earthquake that left the painting standing and undamaged.   Christ is shown enduring the pain of crucifixion.
Every year in October, hundreds of thousands of devotees from all races and economic backgrounds participate in a procession honouring the image through the streets of Lima.   Boulevards are decorated in purple on 18,19 and the final Feast 28 October to celebrate the Lord of Miracles.578px-SeñordelosMilagrosNazarenas

This site will mainly concentrate on Daily Prayers, Novenas and the Memorials and Feast Days of our friends in Heaven, the Saints who went before us and the great blessings the Church provides in our Catholic Monthly Devotions. "For the saints are sent to us by God as so many sermons. We do not use them, it is they who move us and lead us, to where we had not expected to go.” Charles Cardinal Journet (1891-1975) This site adheres to the Catholic Church and all her teachings.
