...Beautiful of the most famous and respectful icons of Lithuania...a nice card to get in this Easter period...(LT-284552) Thanks Elena!!

Cowborn reed pipe (Issued 07-01-2012)

The painting of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of Mercy of Aušros Vartai (the Gate of Dawn) is the only one in Lithuania so widely known for miraculous recoveries and other graces and visited by pilgrims from many surrounding countries. The Blessed Virgin Mary of Aušros Vartai is considered a guardian of Lithuania as well as the symbol of concord. Four peoples and two religious confessions come together to worship her: Lithuanians, Poles, Byelorussians and Russians, Catholics and Orthodox.
