Our Lady of Aparecida
(Portuguese: Nossa Senhora Aparecida or Nossa Senhora da Conceição Aparecida) is a celebrated 18th-century clay statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary, in the traditional form of the Immaculate Conception.
The image is widely venerated by Brazilian Roman Catholics, who consider her as the principal patroness of Brazil.
Pious accounts claim that the statue was originally found by fishermen, who miraculously caught many fishes after invoking the Blessed Virgin Mary.
The dark statue is currently housed in the Basilica of the National Shrine of Our Lady of Aparecida, Aparecida, São Paulo. The cult is not to the image, but for the first apparition of the Immaculate Conception in Brazil, for the first time ever in a black skin color.
The image is considered a symbol of this event, and the apparition as a blessing to Brazil.
The feast day of Our Lady of Aparecida is October 12. Since the basilica's consecration 1980 by Pope John Paul II, it is also a public holiday in Brazil.
The Basilica is the fourth most popular Marian shrine in the world, being able to hold up to 45,000 worshippers.
Prayer to Our Lady Aparecida
Oh, incomparable Lady of Aparecida,
Mother of God, Queen of the Angels,
Advocate of sinners,
refuge and consolation of the afflicted and troubled.
Blessed Virgin, full of power and goodness, look favorably upon us,
so that we may be helped by you in all our needs.
Remember, most merciful Mother Aparecida
that you never turned away from anyone who appealed to your Holy Name
and begged for your special protection.
Inspired by this trust we turn to you.
We take you forever as our Mother, our protector, guide and consolation,
hope and light at our time of death.
Free us from anything that might offend you and your most Holy Son, Jesus.
Protect us from all the dangers of body and soul.
Lead us in all matters spiritual and temporal.
Deliver us from the temptation of evil, so that, by walking the path of virtue,
we may one day see you and love you in eternal glory, for ever and ever.
