Our Lady of Šiluva
Our Lady of Šiluva is Roman Catholic icon of the Virgin Mary in Šiluva, Lithuania. A Cathedral of the same name has been built and is dedicated to it. The icon is highly venerated in Lithuania and is often called "Lithuania's greatest treasure".
The icon is painted in the Our Lady of the Way style, and is similar to the famous Madonna Salus Populi Romani. According to legend, the miraculous icon was brought to Siluva from Rome in 1457 as a gift to Lithuanian nobleman Petras Gedgaudas.
A reported 17th century Marian apparition associated with the icon resulted in the discovery of the deed to a church that had been left for safekeeping, and resulted in increased pilgrimages to the site. Pope Pius VI approved devotions to Our Lady of Šiluva and granted indulgences for them.
