Lama dei Peligni
Come with us to the little town of Lama dei Peligni, in
the Abruzzi area of Italy, not far from Lanciano.
See a little image of the Baby Jesus, called the Santo
Bambino, which has been responsible for many
miracles in the Abruzzi area, including being spared
from a plague which attacked many areas of Italy.
See the altar dedicated to the Santo Bambino, the
tribute paid to Italian immigrants to the United States
who paid for the shrine to be built, and one of the most
unusual ex-votos, thanksgivings for miracles and
healings, in the form of gold, fine jewels and diamonds
given to the Santo Bambino.
Special interview with
Fr. Gianfranco, custodian of the shrine, who shares
many insights about the Santo Bambino
