On Thursday 18 February, on the occasion of the Lauretan Jubilee announced by Pope Francis, Monte Sant’Angelo will host the Peregrinatio of the sacred effigy of the Madonna of Loreto, one hundred years after her proclamation as patroness of aeronauts.
The statue of the Virgin will be accompanied by the soldiers of the 32nd Wing of Amendola and welcomed by the Rector of the Sanctuary and the Mayor: the “keys to the city” will be given to the Mother of the Redeemer.
After the reception rite, at 11.00 the solemn Eucharistic celebration will take place in the Sacred Grotto: the effigy of the Madonna will therefore be exposed for the veneration of the faithful.
At the end of the Chaplet of Divine Mercy, the greeting prayer will take place.
Live streaming on the sanctuary’s website and youtube channel starting at 10.30.
