Feast of Our Lady of Perpetual Help
The feast of Our Lady of Perpetual Help also known as "Our Mother of Perpetual Help" is June 27. This great feast came about on account of a miraculous icon of the Blessed Mother holding her divine Child. It is a very powerful and the original source of many miraculous cures, physical and spiritual. We do well to recite the Memorare while contemplating this icon, the prayer and the image of Our Lady' s sorrowful maternal gaze complement each other beautifully.
As our Queen, she cradles the royal Child Jesus in her left arm while her right hand gently clasps the Savior's little hands. A single sandal dangles from one of His bare feet in anticipation of the welcome He would give to the nails that would pierce them. Yet, the face of Jesus is more mature than His little frame should allow. It is the way of the icon. The icon painter follows a regiment that is laid our by a long tradition of masters. The idea is to teach divine truth in the work of art. In the image of Our Lady of Perpetual Help, Mary is central. On account of its similarity with Saint Luke's painting of Our Lady and Child (the Moslem Turks ripped the original to pieces when they took over Constantinople in 1453) icon scholars believe that the original painting of Our Lady of Perpetual Help was based on a copy of Saint Luke's painting. Our Lady is looking out straight ahead in the picture. Her eyes seem to be pleading for her Son, whom she knew was to die a terrible death in atonement for sin. The Child Jesus is turned toward one of the angels, Michael, who holds forth a cross like a standard; the other angel, Gabriel,carries the spear.
There were many miraculous cures associated with the icon and the more these favors were publicized the more pilgrims came to pray before Our Lady's image. In fact, on the very day it was enshrined in the Church of Saint Thomas a poor paralyzed man, praying before the icon, was instantly cured. For three hundred years the painting graced the Church of Saint Thomas. With the foreign occupation of Rome in 1798, and the desecration of thirty of the city's churches by Napoleon's revolutionary forces, Our Lady's icon was taken out of the church of Saint Matthew, along with twenty other Roman churches, was desecrated and burned to the ground. ---catholicism.org
