  1. What a wonderful, precious, and fun story about Our Lady of Liesse; and thanks for making available a credible connection of this artwork to Africa.

    In addition, that all this has a relationship with both the Knights of Malta and Jean-Baptiste De La Salle—at the same time—points to more than coincidence and not less than Providence.

    Hmmmm.  Looks like Mary managed to fix several red wagons in one shot over several centuries. Rather impressive.☝️👍✌️✊
