Our Lady of Sheshan

Our Lady of Sheshan came to Medjugorje last month via pilgrims Patricia and Jack Duggan. The delicate statue of the patron saint of Shanghai was given as a gift to the Canadian couple by a Chinese pilgrim.

Last weekend Benedict XVI called for Christians around the world to be united in prayer with the Church in China. He explained in a letter to bishops that Our Lady, Help of Christians, is venerated with great devotion at the Marian Shrine of Sheshan in Shanghai, and that her memorial May 24, should be marked as a day of prayer for the Church in China.
