Our Lady of La Leche Tiny Saint
Dimensions: 1/2" x 2"
Devotion to Our Lady as a nursing mother began in the Holy Land, particularly near a grotto where she was believed to have nursed baby Jesus while fleeing Herod's soldiers. Crusaders brought devotion to Our Lady of La Leche (Our Lady of the Milk) back to Spain. Later, Spanish explorers built a shrine in St. Augustine, Florida, where parents still pray and receive help for healthy pregnancies and happy deliveries.
Feast Day: October 11
