Its feast is the main Catholic celebration in Peru and one of the largest processions in the world. This book has the story and the colorful artwork on front says 77 which is assumed to be 1977. ts name originated in the 18th century during an earthquake, which destroyed most of the city leaving only that mural standing. This is considered a miraculous occurrence by many living there. Every year in October, hundreds of thousands of devotees from all races and economic backgrounds participate in a religious procession honouring the image through the streets of Lima. Boulevards are decorated in purple on October 18, 19, and 28 to celebrate the Lord of Miracles. Booklet now in archival sleeve for protection. ; Illustrated; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 40 pages
