The Icon of Our Mother of Perpetual Help  has provide strength, comfort and even miracles to the faithful for centuries! First placed in the Church of San Matteo in Rome in 1499, the Icon was thought to be lost, but it eventually ended up in  the Redemptorist Church of St. Alphonsus in Rome where in 1866 it could again be viewed publicly. On June 23, 1867, Pope Pius IX granted the image its Canonical Coronation along with its present title. Pope Pius also charged the Redemptorists to make Our Mother of Perpetual Help through the Icon known throughout the world.  Since then it has been copied and venerated in churches and homes worldwide.

The Redemptorist Congregation of priest and brothers are the only religious order currently entrusted by the Holy See to protect and propagate a Marian religious work of art.
