Our Lady of The Passion

img_0262-1

Upon seeing the cross where He will be hung, the thorn crown which He will be wearing and the bitter vinegar offering to Him during that time of His future, His terrified little heart tells Him to jump up on His Mother’s arm for refuge, that makes Him loose one of His shoes. The idea comes from an unknown artist but according to the earliest document, the original Icon was first venerated by the public in 1499 at San Matteo in Via Merulana (Wikipedia).

This is the early version of Our Lady of Perpetual Help.
