Description

Our Lady of the Snows is one of the titles given to the Blessed Virgin Mary. Legend has it that an elderly and childless Roman couple asked Our Lady to guide them on whom to leave their inheritance. The Mother of God appeared to them on August 4th, and asked them to build a Basilica in her honor at a place she would indicate with snow on Esquiline Hill, one of the seven hills of Rome. On August 5, in midsummer, snow miraculously appeared on Esquiline Hill as promised by Our Lady, in the place where the Basilica of Saint Mary Major was later built. There are several locations in Portugal that pay homage to Our Lady of the Snows every year.
