In Brazil, is a common tradition to ask for the help of the saints and every year thousands of devotees, coming from all parts of the country, comes to the temple of Our Lady of Aparecida to pay their promises, pray, ask for protection and be grateful for all the blessings achieved.

Every October 12th, Brazilians celebrate her day, also the most famous day to pay the promises. Some of these promises can look too harsh for those who do not believe or have no faith, but every single one of them, pay their promises with a warm heart full of love, faith and devotion for the Blessed Virgin Mary that takes care of all the payers of promises as a mother for their sons.
