Mass in celebration of Feast Day of Our Mother of Perpetual Help
The Icon of Our Mother of Perpetual Help has provided strength, comfort and even miracles to the faithful for centuries! First placed in the Church of San Matteo in Rome in 1499, the Icon was thought to be lost, but it eventually ended up in the Redemptorist Church of St. Alphonsus in Rome where in 1866 it could again be viewed publicly. On June 23, 1867, Pope Pius IX granted the image its Canonical Coronation along with its present title. Pope Pius also charged the Redemptorists to make Our Mother of Perpetual Help through the Icon known throughout the world. In 1878, the Basilica and Shrineof Our Mother of Perpetual Help in Boston, Massachusetts, obtained a certified copy of the icon being the first in the United States. Between 1927 and 1935, the first American novena service dedicated to the icon was recited in Saint Alphonsus "The Rock" church in St. Louis, Missouri.
