Turn to Mary

Since the beginning of Christianity, Christians have been turning to Mary in times of need and in times of celebration. Mary, who is so close to her Son, is able to bring our intercessions to Him. Every little detail about Mary and her life leads us to Jesus.

Salus Populi Romani

This icon has been in existence for many years. It currently resides in a side chapel in the Basilica of St. Mary Major in Rome. The people of Rome turned to this icon in times of plague and hardship. Pope Francis visits this icon before and after each of his trips to other nations.
