The miracle of Our Lady

The miracle of Our Lady

Long ago on Christmas Eve of 1721, a miraculous event took place at the village of Sv. Petar u Sumi, when the Paulist monk Pavao Subski spotted tears on the face of Our Lady of Chenstohova on the high-altar painting of the Church of Sts. Peter and Paul.


Our Lady shed four tears. One tear fell from her forehead to her lips, while the other three appeared under her eye and slid down to her nose. The Paulist monks living at the monastery, together with a multitude of worshippers, rushed to the church to witness this extraordinary event. At the mass celebrating the New Year 1722, the first eyewitness, Father Pavao, dried the tears from Our Lady's face with a handkerchief.

From then on until the Paulist monks left Sv. Petar u Sumi in 1783, people made pilgrimages to the miraculous painting of Our Lady of Chenstohova. The entire event was recorded and preserved in the bishop's archives in Porec thanks to Caspar de Nigris, Bishop of Porec, who transcribed, from a memorial book, the numerous prayers granted by Our Lady of Chenstohova, usually involving the miraculous recoveries of many villagers.
