Our Lady of Bonaria:   Devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary in the form of a statue of Mary and the Christ Child that was washed up at a Mercedarian monastery near Cagliari, Italy on 25 April 1370, apparently from a shipwreck the night before.   Legend says that the locals tried to open the crate it was in, but only one of the Mercedarian monks could get the it open.   Patron of Sardinia, Italy.Our Lady of Bonaria

Our Lady of Luján in Buenos Aires:  Lujan2Virgin of Luján, Patroness of Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay.   16th-century icon of the Virgin Mary.   Tradition holds that a settler ordered the terracotta image of the Immaculate Conception in 1630 because he intended to create a shrine in her honour to help reinvigorate the Catholic faith in Santiago del Estero, his region.   After embarking from the port of Buenos Aires, the caravan carrying the image stopped at the residence of Don Rosendo Oramas, located in the present town of Zelaya.   When the caravan wanted to resume the journey, the oxen refused to move. Once the crate containing the image was removed, the animals started to move again. Given the evidence of a miracle, people believed the Virgin wished to remain there.   The image was venerated in a primitive chapel for 40 years.   Then the image was acquired by Ana de Matos and carried to Luján, where it currently resides.
