Jubilee Celebration – Our Lady Of Perpetual Help
On the Feast of Our Lady of Perpetual Help, June 27, 2015, Redemptorist Missionaries opened a year-long celebration to commemorate the restoration of the Icon of Our Lady of Perpetual Help for public veneration. The theme of this Jubilee, “Icon of Love” testifies to the attraction and the power of Our Lady of Perpetual Help (OLPH) for the people of our day.
This Jubilee Year is a special moment of grace for us and for all God’s people. As Pope Francis writes in the apostolic exhortation Evangelii Gaudium, Mary is the Mother of Evangelization (284), entrusted with a “special saving mission” (285) as “the missionary who draws near to us and accompanies us” (286). She is our Perpetual Help.
