Since 1866 the Redemptorists have spread devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary under the icon and title of Our Mother of Perpetual Help (also known as Our Lady of Perpetual Help and Our Lady of Perpetual Succour). This sacred image has special importance for the Redemptorists, who were asked by Pope Pius IX to “make her known throughout the world.” (1)
Each element of the icon has a specific meaning:
June 27 is Mary’s feast day under the title Our Mother of Perpetual Help. (1)

The painting is a Byzantine icon that is believed to have its origin sometime during the 13th -15th century. The icon is known for being miraculous; over the centuries countless healings and special graces have been attributed to it, so much so that the image has been honored and venerated by many Popes. It is painted on wood and measures about 20" in height (54 x 41.5 centimeters) and depicts the Virgin Mary, under the title “Mother of God,” holding the Child Jesus. (2)
