BASILICA DI SAN GIORGIO COMO Centenario dell’Incoronazione di Nostra Signora del Sacro Cuore di Gesù

In the basilica of San Giorgio, the cult of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart of Jesus started in 1874, when the church was chosen to guest this devotion of French origin to the Holy Mary that was becoming popular in the Diocese of Como. Two years later the basilica became the local Sanctuary and it was scalptured the beautiful statue of the Virgin with the Child, now located in a monumental marble niche in the main apse. In 1919, at the end of World War 1, the statue of the Holy Mary and the Child was crowned in the Cathedral by Cardinal Andrea Ferrari. The city of Como offered the crowns to thank for the protection obtained through the intercession of the Virgin during the terrible conflict.
