The Story of the Miraculous Image of the Madonna di San Sisto

Madonna di San Sisto

If you read one of my previous posts on the Holy Father’s visit to the Dominican nuns at Santa Maria del Rosario, you may have noticed his reference to a particular image present there: “the image of St. Sixtus’ acheropita Virgin, now protector of the Roman convents of St. Mary in Tempulo and of St. Sixtus.” 

The story of the miraculous image of the Madonna di San Sisto and how it came to be connected to the Dominican Order, particularly the Dominican nuns, is fascinating and can be found at:    http://www.usaopnuns.org/Madonna.html.
