Friends, with the permission of you, I have the great Honor of writing devoted to our Adorada and Virgin Venerada "La Divina Pastora in Barquisimeto". Our holy mother is one of the most important religious icons of Venezuela, the original image dates from 1735, and is leaving in procession each January 14.
The Divina Pastora Patron Saint of Barquisimeto is one of the Mariana invocations of the Virgin most loved and followed by the country. Each January 14 a procession crowd, which is considered the largest globally, where the image comes from his temple in the town of Santa Rosa and stroll up to the Metropolitan Cathedral of Barquisimeto touring more than 5 kilometres, the domingo de ramos (before Easter) and from January 14the image of the Divina Pastora stroll 44 temples of the Lara state.
This procession differs from the Marianas celebrations in the world, as of Guadalupe in Mexico, in which the image of the Virgin of Guadalupe does not leave his temple, i.e., a pilgrimage of the faithful to meet with Mary is celebrated in Mexico. According to studies carried out with respect to the concentration as such, it has as a result that the procession of the Divina Pastora of Barquisimeto, it is the third concentration Mariana in the world, behind of the Virgin of Guadalupe (Mexico) and our Lady of Fatima (Portugal), respectively first and second.
