About Our Lady of Perpetual Help

The picture of Our Lady of Perpetual Help is said to have been brought from Crete to Rome in the 15th century by a merchant who, upon his dying, asked that Our Lady be placed in a Church for public veneration. The picture was enshrined in St. Matthew’s Church for 300 years. When the French invaded Rome, St. Matthew’s was destroyed and the Augustinian fathers transferred Our Lady to St. Eusebius. The image was moved to St. Mary of Posterula where it hung in a side chapel for forty years.
In 1853, the Redemptorists built a house in Rome with a small church, St. Alphonsus, adjacent to what was once St. Matthew’s. Pope Pius IX asked the Augustinians to give the picture to the Redemptorist’s and in 1866, during the transfer of Our Lady, a young boy was cured of meningitis and a young girl recovered use of her paralyzed leg.
The picture is painted on wood with a gold background in a flat style characteristic of an icon. The Blessed Mother wears a dark red dress with a blue mantle and veil. On the left is the archangel Michael holding a lance and sponge. On the right is the archangel Gabriel holding the cross and nails. The Child Jesus holds his mother’s hand with both of his hands. His sandal slips from His foot as He peers as the angels who hold the instruments of His passion. The Greek letters above and below each of the images translate Mother of God, Michael Archangel, Gabriel Archangel, and Jesus Christ, respectively. Mary’s head gently touches her Son’s yet her solemn gaze is toward those who view her. In 1870, the Redemptorist dedicated a small Church near Boston to Our Lady of Perpetual Help, receiving from Rome the first copy of the painting touched to the original. Since then, over two thousand three hundred copies of the original have been sent out from St. Alphonsus’s Church in Rome.

Our Lady of Perpetual Help Prayer

“O Mother of Perpetual Help,
grant that I may ever invoke Thy
most powerful name, which is
the safeguard of the living and the
salvation of the dying.
O Purest Mary, O Sweetest Mary,
let Thy name henceforth be
ever on my lips.
Delay not, O Blessed Lady, to help
me whenever I call on Thee, for,
in all my needs, in all my
temptations I shall never cease
to call on Thee, ever repeating
Thy sacred name, Mary, Mary.
O what consolation, what
sweetness, what confidence,
what emotion fill my soul when
I pronounce Thy sacred name,
or even only think of Thee.
I thank God for having given
Thee, for my good, so sweet,
so powerful, so lovely a name.
But I will not be content with
merely pronouncing Thy name:
let my love for Thee prompt
me ever to hail Thee,
Mother of Perpetual Help.
