30th November : Our Lady Of Genesta

Our Lady Of Genesta

Country : Italy

Year :

The shrine of Our Lady of Genesta is on the coast of Genoa, Italy.  A poor woman, named Petruccia, undertook to build the church in Mary’s honor, a task which to everybody seemed impossible.  The woman, however, proceeded to lay the cornerstone, and assured everybody that she would not die until the Blessed Virgin and St. Augustine finished this work.

Had not Mary said, “Let scoffers be”?  Petruccia believed without doubt that the Madonna would keep her promise as she had said in the vision.  Petruccia’s faith was rewarded.
