Feast of the Lord of Miracles (Senor De Los Milagros)

Click here for El Senor De Los Milagros Image

Dear Friends in Christ, we are gathered today to uphold the Unity we have in Jesus Christ our Lord, upholding our common faith in the midst of the many blessings we receive.

Today, we celebrate the Feast of the Lord Of Miracles. In this Icon, Christ is shown enduring the pain of crucifixion. Above the cross is the Holy Spirit and God the Father. Below and to the right of Jesus is his mother, the Virgin Mary with her heart pierced by a metaphorical sword of sorrow and to her right at the foot of the cross is St Mary Magdalene.

It was painted by a black slave in the 17th century. Its name originated in a massive earthquake in the 18th century, which destroyed most of the city leaving only that mural standing up.

It was believed to have cured many people around the world.

Every year, in October, hundreds of thousands of faithful from all races and economic backgrounds celebrate the Lord of Miracles in a religious procession through the streets of Lima in Peru. The boulevards are dressed in purple to celebrate on October 18, 19 and 28th Lord of Miracles his annual procession through the streets of Lima.

Without doubt the earthquakes experienced by Lima, Peru during the 17th and 18th Centuries contributed to the beginning, the growth and the solidification of devoted veneration to the mural known as The Lord of Miracles.

This miracle is similar to the one we had in this Church when the image of our Holy Child (Sto Nino) withstood the fire of 2004without any damage where everything inside the Church was burned.

The Lord of Miracles is our Fiesta. We celebrate the presence of God and His people from many tribes and nations uplifting our common goal of “One Faith, One Baptism, One God and Father of All”

Let us therefore go as one people praising God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. Amen.
