The icon of the Aglona Mother of God in Latvia

Every year on the day of the Assumption of Mary, thousands of pilgrims journey to the Basilica of the Assumption where the icon, “Our Miraculous Lady of Aglona” is kept. Many miracles have been attributed to the icon, which dates back to 17th century. When Pope John Paul visited the basilica in 1993 over 300,000 pilgrims came out to see him.
