Devotions: El Señor de los Milagros

Every year in October, hundreds of thousands of devotees from all across Lima and Peru participate in a religious procession honoring Jesus Christ through the image known in Spanish as, “El Señor de los Milagros”. Boulevards are decorated in purple for the entire month of October to celebrate the Lord of Miracles. The procession is the highlight of the devotion and outpouring of faith, which you are able to witness in the video above.

The image of “El Señor de los Milagros” shows Jesus Christ enduring the pain of crucifixion. Above the cross is the Holy Spirit and God the Father. Below and to the left of Jesus is his mother, the Virgin Mary, with her heart pierced by a sword of sorrow. Kneeling and weeping at the foot of the cross is Mary Magdalene.
