In the latest edition of The Catholic, published by the Transalpine Redemptorists, I was reading about the different representations of Our Lady across the world. Such devotions – and some approved apparitions – include Our Lady of Seshan, Our Lady of Vailankanni, Our Lady of Lavang, Our Lady of Kibeho and Our Lady of Akita. Of course, we cannot forget Our Lady of Guadalupe and Our Lady of Good Help in Champion, Wisconsin.
Our Lady of Vailankanni
Our Lady is the Mother of all the world.
