Pescara - Program for the June festival / Via alla festa dei Colli , by Ernesto Grippo
Tomorrow, first Sunday in June the feast of the Madonna dei Sette dolori begins. The tradition started in 1757 after the apparition of the Virgin Mary with seven swords in her heart. And in 1893 they prayed the virgin Mary for rain, and rain came and saved the fields of Castellammare. After the religious ceremonies, the feast will continue with music on Monday and fireworks. Since last year the statue can again appear in her precious crown, previously stolen and then rescued by the police.

Loreto Aprutino -the martyr and the letter / Il martire e un'antica lettera, by Orlando D'Angelo

On Sunday morning the traditional kneeling of the white ox will be re-enacted. Among the miracles ascribed to San Zopito: a lady was healed of a wound in her leg by the oil of the saint's lamp, which also eliminated the bladder stones of notary Domenico Caldarale. All over the world the name of the saint has followed the Loretesi.
